Ozeri... Find it on Amazon and Walmart

I'm super lucky to be able to product test for Ozeri!  They have SO many fabulous things to check out, and the prices for what you great are great!!  You can find them on Walmart and Amazon.  

I got two different fans to try out!  If you know me... You know my hot flashes are swift and severe!  LOL.  I also take cancer meds which give me extra hot flashes, I'm a lucky girl... I know!  

First up is this 10" table top fan.  Find it on Amazon here.   It's made out of plastic, but it's very sturdy.  AND SUPER QUIET!!!!  This is perfect if you want to use it for an office setting or in an area where you use the phone or watch TV.  You can choose from stationary or oscillating settings.  Can wait to use this when it gets warmer out!  I'm in Michigan, so it'll be stored for a bit until I need to use it! 

I also got a TOWER FAN with a remote!  SHUT UP.  I'm so happy with this!  My son thought it was speakers... nope, it's a super cool fan!  They have several different styles to choose from.  Check out mine herehttp://amzn.to/2iOktsS.  It has a remote control which is FABULOUS!  My body temp changes constantly, so does my need for speed.  Did I just say that?  I'll be click click clicking my way thru next summer!  

This is a super quiet fan and has tons of great features, even a timer! And it's huge, but narrow and doesn't take up much space.  I love it!!!  

A final product for this post is Ozeri Knife set.  I've loved EVERY set I've gotten from Ozeri and this one is no exception!  This set is for a gift, but look at how fabulous this set looks!  

Makes a fantastic gift at a great price!!!  I use my Ozeri ceramic ones all the time, and these are even better than those.  

Super happy with my Ozeri purchases!  Head to Amazon or Walmart and check them out!!

Product Reviews

It's so hard to believe it's November already!  Where has the time gone??  I have a few more products that I was lucky enough to get to try.  So let's get started!!

I got a really cool SILICONE water bottle.  Silicone?  How sweet!  This is perfect for on the go or for the kids to take to school.  It's super lightweight and easy to carry.  When it's not in use, it actually folds up into a compact little ball!  Let the air back into the bottle and it'll stand up on it's own.  It has a nice wide mouth on it for putting in ice cubes.  LOVE that.  It does have a small aerator at the back, with 2 replacement parts.  There is NO way I'm not going to lose them.  lol.  They're in a tiny bag, but it's hard to find a spot where I'll remember them.  They must come out easy if there are replacements.  Not looking forward to losing those.   Wish is was a little more permanent.   I give this 4 out of 5 stars.  Besides that feature, I really love this.  

I received this bottle for FREE in exchange for my honest opinion.  #gotitfree #AD


I also got some little chalk boards for my Lemongrass Spa business!  I use this for my display table.  These are the best ones I've gotten so far!!  This size is fantastic.  And their double-sided chalk boards... say what?!  These are perfect for describing my items and putting prices on display.  Love the little twine hanger.  

Aren't they CUTE??  I love them.   I got them for free in exchange for my honest opinion.  


I also got a Bathtub Turtle for a baby shower gift.  He is so stinking cute!!!  Turtle will tell you if bath water is too hot, too cold or just right!  

  • Floats naturally
  • instantly activates in water
  • Waterproof
  • LCD screen
  • checks the temp every second!
  • sensor activated - no buttons or switches
  • no annoying alarms
  • Compliant with safety standards
  • safe for ALL ages

It really is hard to tell with just your hand how hot the water really is, this is a great shower gift for a new mom!  

I got this for FREE in exchange for my honest opinion.  


AND last but not least, doggy toothpaste!  Of course I had to tease my kids and tell them I got them beef flavored toothpaste.  LOL.  One of them was excited... sigh.  BOYS!   

You get a 2-pack of paste and 2 different types of brushes.   One if a finger brush, dogs like that gum massage!  But use the long handle one if you think your dog might get distressed and try to bite you.  

Dental hygiene is just as important for you pets (cats too!) as it is for you.  They can get diseases and lose teeth.  My dogs don't mind using this toothpaste at all.  And the more often I do it, the more receptive they are.  And they get a great treat when they're done! 

I got this at a discount in exchange for my honest opinion!

That's it for today!  Coming soon... a GREAT deal on printed leggings.  I'll give the full lowdown on those!  I got a couple of grilling products too.

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! 

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.  

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!

I received this for free in exchange for my honest opinion.

Neat-O Over the Cabinet Trash Can Basket Storage Organizer Holder

This is my review for the over the cabinet basket.  Of COURSE it doesn't work with my type of cupboard door!  I live in a house that is 116 years old and nothing fits or works here. LOL. 

It didn't word for the inside, so I thought I would try the outside.  No good on either.  I'm still going to figure out how to make it work, cause I really need storage help! 

This is very well made and sturdy.  If you use it on the inside, you will need a lot of open space inside to be able to close the door.  This thing is huge!  Which I love!  Just got to figure out where I'm going to put it and what I'm going to use it for.  Lots of possibilities. 

I received this product on a promotional discount for my honest review and they are 100% my own
opinions. I received no compensation for this review and I am not required to give a good review. I am also not associated with the seller in any way.


Men's Cotton Classic Boxer Briefs Trunk Underwear

This is the same maker of underwear I reviewed in the previous post, different seller. I didn't notice on the last set... there is an opening in the front, but it's sewn shut.  LOL.  These are completely sewn shut in the front.  So whoever is wearing them can't use the bathroom thru the front.  

I was able to get these for FREE (Lucky me!) to product test for my oldest son.  He's 16 and about 186 pounds.  I ordered a size medium.  after washing these are an ok fit. He said they're not very comfortable, they're just ok.  There is a small tag on the side which you can cut out. 

They are a nice soft cotton.   They come in GREAT colors.   Elastic band makes them more comfortable.  I'm happy with my purchase, not ecstatic.  I would give about 3.5 stars on these.
