Amazon Reivews.... I'm still reviewing!

The reviewing world was turned upside down when Amazon announced incentivized reviews were no longer allowed.  Wait... what?  

It took all of us a few days to come up with a new plan.  A new strategy.  A new way of reviewing.  Amazon really hurt the small seller, I feel really bad about that.  So as reviewers, we're doing ALL we can to still market and get the word out about their products.  I LOVE blogging... I think this is BETTER than Amazon reviews!  Take that Amazon.

I got 4 products to review from "Review Kick", which has been renamed "jump send".  

I got a box of practice baseballs.... Say what??  My 2 baseball player sons were very happy!   My oldest is a varsity player and said these are fantastic balls.   He's a pitcher so he would know!  Really well made and laces are great. 

12 baseball in a box stamped with "practice".  You can see these quality baseballs here.  

From baseballs.... to bug zapping!  I have no shame and don't feel bad for zapping bugs!  I live in Michigan and they're horrible Spring - Fall.  

I got a bug zapper that actually screws into a light socket.  Genius!  You can use this for indoor or outdoor use.  It works as a light and a zapper.  Check it out here.   BBBBZZZZZZZZZZZZ

I got a pizza peel!!!  I've been wanting one of these for so long.  I have a pizza stone and REALLY needed something to transfer my pizza from my prep area to the stone.  This one is amaze-balls.  Made out of a really nice wood and a perfect shape scooping up the pizza.  I use this to get frozen pizza's out of the oven too, works great!!!  

See it here.   

And last but not least, a meal prep glass dish!  I'm loving going back to "basics" and getting GLASS dishes!  No plastic to worry about when microwaving.  Or just plain ole storing your food.  This dish comes with a great locking and sealing lid.  This part is plastic, don't put it in the oven!  LOL.  Lid is easy to snap on and use.  Glass was in perfect condition upon arrival. 

So there you have it!  My review items -- I got some really great stuff didn't I?!!  So glad reviewing is not dead, and I'm still getting products!

Solar powered charger? YES PLEASE!

If you're an outdoors sport mom... this is a must have!   Check out this solar charger here.  

And it's SO much more than just a charger!!!  I can't tell you how many baseball games I've been to and my phone died.. and so did my portable charger.  Uh oh.... whose going to get photo of my adorable player now??  Who is going to post updates on facebook???  I KNOW, right?!  

The front of this charger is the solar panel.  Yup, charges with the sun or a bright light.  
This is what the solar charging panel looks like ^^^^^.  Isn't it cute?!

It has shiny flashing light up lights that let you know it's working and how charged up it is.  

It has a light at the bottom, use as a flashlight!  

It has not one but TWO charging ports!!!  Since hubs or my mom usually needs to charge up too! 


It's very rugged, very well made and sturdy!  Comes with  a short charging cord and carbine clip.    It even has a COMPASS on the back!  They thought of everything with this charger. 

Isn't it sweet?? I love it.   If you use a more powerful charging cord, you get even better charging times with it too.  
I received this charger at a discounted rate for my unbiased and honest review!  


Lights and clocks and charging... OH MY!

I got not one but TWO products from this company on Amazon.   And they are saaaawweeeet! 

The first item that I got is a night light/phone charger.  Well, it has USB ports so you can use it for whatever you need to charge.  You can see and purchase it here 

This one just plugs into any outlet.   It has a sensor on the side, so when it's dark it automatically comes on.   Want to turn that feature off?  There are little tiny silicone plugs!  Then the light will just stay on until you hit the power button to turn it off.  It has TWO USB ports.  Charge your phone, plug in a book light, connect a speaker... so many things you can do with that!  Super cute, great size for traveling works FANTASTIC!  5 stars!!!  

NOT to worry, I have a better photo of it!  

The other has several multi functions.  It's a light, lift up the bar and it has different levels of light.  It's a clock, alarm, thermometer, date, etc.   It even has a light on the bottom that rotates thru colors that you can turn on or off.  This is seriously SWEET.  Perfect for a desk.   This one has a USB type of cord... you can plug it into your little light!  PERFECT!  It's easy to set and does come with clear instructions.  

You can see more about this product and purchase it here.   

I was lucky enough to get BOTH of these products for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion!

Ski Gloves.... a must have in Michigan!

I live in Michigan and Ski Gloves are a must for my boys!  I got some on Amazon for review - click here.   

They come in medium or large, I got them in medium since they're for my 12-year-old son.   They fit me perfect!  lol.   They are a good size for him, a little bit big but that's great so hopefully they'll last for a couple of years!

The snow isn't flying here yet, so we haven't tried them in the extreme weather yet.  What I can tell you is that they are nice and thick, well padded and warm!  The outside material is nice and soft, well sewn and put together.  The inside is  a soft comfortable material.  There are little dots on the fingers and palm for a good grip if you are using these for any sports.  They also have a clip so you can clip them together to keep them from getting lost. Or should I say separated?  This way, they can get lost together.  lol.  

these will come in handy at the bus stop and for outside during playtime!  Great purchase!  

I received these for FREE in exchange for my honest opinion and review.  All thoughts are my own.  


Dog Vitamins... that my dog will actually EAT!

I got some Dog Vitamins that my dog will actually EAT!  I got them from Amazon, click HERE.  

I tried a different brand for my finicky picky dog, they were liver flavored and she wouldn't touch them.  SIGH.   My older dog loved them, but she'll eat anything.  Shameless.  

These are also liver flavored, but Miss Snickers ate one!  And the next day another one!  WHOOHOO, throw confetti in the air.  I love my pooch.  A LOT.  And I mean... a lot.   So I want her to have the best and keep her as healthy as I can.   This is a SUPER sized bottle with 365 vitamins in it.  She only needs one per day, so I'm all set for vitamins for a full year!  Not a bad price for one year of vitamins (today the price is $34.95)  

I'm very please with the ingredients and list of vitamins that are in these pills.  

I was lucky to receive these at a DISCOUNT in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion!

Silicon cupcake liners

I'm a dork... I've wanted these for so long!  LOL.  Silicone Cupcake Liners from Amazon!  http://amzn.to/2dMQsFo

You get 24 of them in a cute little box.  (These would be adorable for a shower gift!)   They come in 8 different colors.   The colors are really nice and vibrant.  They DO sit up really well by themselves, they don't get all floppy or anything.  So you can use these without a muffin pan. 

I took my before photos... and forgot to take the after photos!  Why do I do that??  They worked really well.  I did spray them with cooking spray first, I don't want a big mess.  NONE of  them stuck to the liners, they popped out really well.  Just toss them in the dishwasher to wash them up, easy peasy. 

They are also BPA, PVC and Phthalates free.   This cancer survivor appreciates that!    Super fun, cute and work great.   I give them 5/5 stars!  I recommend them.

I received these at a discount in exchange for my honest opinion. 

Lap Desk Review

So I got this Lap Desk to review:  http://amzn.to/2dMNq44

I thought, sure I'll give it a try.  I might like it.  OH EMM GEEE, I love it!   I've been working from home for years, why didn't I get one of these years ago??  It's a faux leather, it feels nothing like leather, but I like it.  lol.  My laptop or anything that I put on here doesn't slide around.  For extra security for something like a cell phone or something "rolly" like a pen, there is an elastic band on the left hand side.  It's nice and snug and sewn to the board well.  The size of the desk is perfect for me.   I have a large laptop too, 15.6". 

Underneath is a soft Styrofoam bead stuffed bag.   I wish this part was stuffed more.  It's comfy, just a little small.  The board seems to end up on my lap a lot.   But it's ok!

I've used this EVERY day since I got it.   My youngest son and I fight over it, he loves it too.  He loves to use it for his homework too.  Works for meals too... it's multi purpose.  Love this!
