REVIEW – LTE 10W LED Motion Sensor Flood Light

I am using this light in my garage to light my freezer. My garage doesn’t have much light and there is only one socket that is available near my freezer. I decided to use the LTE 10W LED Motion Sensor Flood Light there.

We had to mount it to a piece of 2x4 so we could mount the flood light between the studs. Once we did that, we had light! Now I can easily see what is in my freezer without having to put out extension cords and lamps.

A rather unusual use of the flood lights, but it works great for us. I like that we can go to the freezer and the flood light will turn on, and when we leave we don’t have to worry about turning it off because it will turn off on its own.

REVIEW – Bath Bomb Set 6 Pack of Lush Bath Fizzies with Natural Ingredients from De La Mar

The box these are packaged in is very pretty, and when you open the box, you see the 6 bath bombs each wrapped in tissue paper with the name of the bath bomb on it. When you open the wrapped ball, you will see that it is also wrapped in plastic. I liked that because I accidentally dropped one bath bomb and the plastic kept all the pieces together until I was ready to use it.

When I put the ball into my ½ filled bathtub as per their recommendation, it started fizzing, but the fizzing didn’t last long. I didn’t mind that it didn’t fizz a lot. I was just lying there enjoying the wonderful scent and the hot relaxing water. After my bath, I found that my skin was softer & smoother than it has been in a while.

REVIEW – Vision Support Supplement with 10 mg Lutein and Zeaxanthin by Natures Nectar

When I had the chance to review the Vision Support Supplement, checked the reviews. Based on all the good reviews, I decided to review this.

After I took my first dose, I happened to have a doctor’s appointment. When I told her I was going to add this supplement to my regimen, she told me that it would negativity effect my blood thinner. Sadly, I can’t effectivity review this product, though I will say, that from the single dose I took, I kept burping the taste of the pill for at least a couple of hours.

As a suggestion to Natures Nectar, you might want to list the medications that this would react to in the listing for the supplement.

REVIEW – Wireless Doorbell Home Kit by Chimes52

The delivery people do not like coming up the door when they hear my dogs barking. I have a courtyard, and I have a lot of packages being delivered. Before getting this doorbell, some drivers were leaving the package outside the gate to my courtyard.

After installing the bell on the inside of the gate on the fence and letting the delivery people know about it, they are leaving the packages on the table I provided, then ringing the bell. Now I know when a package arrives and can go and get it right away. Easier for them and easier for me.

I also like being able to choose the sound of my doorbell.

REVIEW – EcoFrank Premium Toner Cartridge Replacement for HP CF280A - 80A

Listing title states: “EcoFrank 2 Pack Premium Toner Cartridge Replacement", but inside the listing it states “1 unit”. Listing title needs to be changed to reflect that this listing is only one cartridge.

I installed the cartridge as soon as it arrived because my printer had been saying that it was able t print “less the 50 pages” for over a month. I installed the cartridge, and so far, it has been working fine.

REVIEW – Chef Rimer Big Microwave Popcorn Popper

I love popcorn! Any kind of popcorn - plain, buttered butter, cheddar popcorn, etc. Soon after you buy the Chef Rimer Big Microwave Popcorn Popper, you will receive an email with the directions for the popcorn popper and a recipe booklet (in PDF format). The recipe booklet has over 100 popcorn recipes – some are really easy and some take a little time to make. But so far, I have liked everyone I have made.

The Chef Rimer Big Microwave Popcorn Popper is simple & easy to use. Pop it open, add ¼ cup of popcorn, place the lid inside the bowl (the lid doesn’t go on top of the bowl, it sets inside the bowl on top of the popcorn). Put the bowl in the Microwave & set the time for 2 minutes. Depending on your microwave, 2 minutes may be perfect – mine takes 2 and a half minutes.

Pull the bowl out of the microwave using the handles, pour the popcorn into a bowl, add what you like and enjoy!

REVIEW – Burger Right Silicone Burger Press

My housemates and I were having a discussion about the hamburgers I used to make. I told them that it a burger press came available to review, I would try to get it and then make my burgers again. A few days later the Burger Right Silicone Burger Press came available to review.

This burger press is great. I like the bigger thickness of the press because I can make stuffed burgers with it. I can put the cheese & pre-cooked mushrooms inside the burger and “poof” easy to cook mushroom & cheese burgers with no mess on the BBQ or in the frying pan.

I also like the after a freeze a batch of burgers, I can just pop then out, but the burgers in a contain or zip bag, then make more burgers. I really like that I can just pop the press in the dishwasher to clean it – no fuss, no mess. I am all for ease of cleaning up after cooking.

REVIEW - 4 Pack Buy Natural Ultrasonic Pest Repellers

Like most people, I hate when bugs and rodents get in the house. But, they manage to somehow. With the mice & roof rats, I had the professionals come out because they were getting into the food and I wanted them gone right away. But with the bugs, I can be a little patient.

I have noticed a slight improvement with the bugs since I started using these. I put them in the front room, bedroom & kitchen so far. I haven’t seen any new bugs in the bedroom, but I have seen a few in the front room, kitchen & guest bathroom.

I think because the kitchen & front room are large room, that I need to add a second one to each of those rooms. I didn’t put one in the guest bath, so I will need to add one there.

Since it has only been a week and I didn’t install all of them yet, I can only say that I have seen some improvement and I expect that I will see further improvement in a few weeks. I will update this review in a few weeks.

REVIEW – Cheetha Model - Canvas Shoulder Bag from ForestLn House

First, let me say that I don’t like purses. The only reason I carry one is that I have an iPhone 6 Plus and I can’t carry it in my back jeans pocket. My previous purse was a leather purse that was taller than this one, and I would literally lose my wallet in that purse.

With this purse, I can carry my wallet in the smaller of the two inner pockets and my iPhone in the front packet under the flap.

Since I started carrying a purse, I have found that I carry other things that I might need, and those I carry in the larger inner pocket. In the flap packet I carry my house keys, and in the back zipper pocket I put my receipts so I can file them when I get home.

I like that it is canvas and that I can wash it if I get it dirty. While I wouldn’t carry it when I was going out dressed up, I will wear it as an everyday purse for work, traveling and everyday use.

My only complaint is that I can’t put my original iPad in it like I did with my original purse, but I can just hand carry that if I need it. All in all, a good sturdy purse that will last.

REVIEW - Pimkee Ultrasonic Dog Whistle

I have 3 dogs with completely different personalities. Buddy is the “protector” – he will bark to protect, Scotty is the quiet one – hardly ever barks, Frankie is all about playing ball – will bark is Buddy gets his started.

I have tried teaching them the word quite, but they are stubborn. So, I decided to try the Pimkee Ultrasonic Dog Whistle. The first time I used it on Buddy & Frankie, I told them QUIET and when they kept barking so I blew the whistle and again said QUIET. I worked!

But poor Scotty was confused and went into his crate in the back of the house. I think it bothered him and he thought that he was being punished. Hopefully Buddy & Frankie learn to be quiet quickly otherwise I will try something else so the Scotty doesn’t think he is being punished.

REVIEW - GWHOLE Pack of 3 Paint Tray Palettes with Ten-well Thumb Hole

I only recently have started back into painting, so I didn’t have any of my old tools any more. Because I didn’t want to spend a lot of money, but at the same time needed a paint palette, I choose to start with the GWHOLE Pack of 3 Paint Tray Palette.

The palette is lightweight, easy to hold and can be held it in either hand. It is easy to clean, and when I forget to clean it right away, I can just rinse it off and put it in the top shelf of the dishwasher.

I use the 6 round wells around the edges to hold my basic colors and use the smaller rectangle wells for mixing any custom colors I need.

REVIEW - Aposon Leather Band Business/Casual/Dress Watch

I am a woman who prefers to wear men’s watches so I can actually see the time easily. In that respect I really like the rose toned numbers against the silver back. I like that it has the date as well as the time so I don’t have to pull out my phone to know what the date it. I don’t often need to know the exact second, but it is easily seen on the watch face.

The watch band is easily adjustable and it sits comfortably on my wrist. I am glad it is waterproof because I have worn it to the pool and forgot I had it on & started swimming. I feared that I had ruined my new watch, but it still working fine and you wouldn’t know it took a swim with me.

The only negative I would give this watch is that it comes in a plastic bag inside in a “Frustration Free” brown box labeled “Watch”. If I were to give this as a gift, I would have to go buy a nice box to re-package it in.

REVIEW - Leader Accessories Basic Guard 3 Layer Universal Fit Water Resistant Car Cover

My car gets parked under a cherry plum tree. Between the squirrels & the birds my car would covered with bird poop and the skin & seeds of the fruit. Very messy and hard to remove from the car.

I finally decided to get a car cover, but it had to be easy to install so it would actually be used. After much looking I found the Leader Accessories Basic Guard 3 Layer Universal Fit Water Resistant Car Cover. Think of a big shower cap that you put on your car – and that is what this car cover sort of looks like.

These steps sound like a lot, but takes less than 5 minutes to do, but it is extremely easy to put on:
#1 - Find the “front” tag on the cover
#2 - Slip the cover under the corners of both the front fenders
#3 - Go to the back of the car, open the trunk and either hook the back strap over the hook/latch on the trunk or if your car doesn’t have a place to hook the strap just put the strap into trunk, then close the trunk
#4 – Slip the cover under the corners of the back fenders
#5 – Walk around the car and make sure the elastic in under the edge of the car.

Now my car and its paint job is protected and I don’t have to hose off and wash my car all the time. As a bonus, it does keep the car cooler in the summer. I noticed that when I removed it on a hot day, the interior was cooler than normal.
