Brainwavz Makes Quality Audio Products and Accessories

I have always been impressed with the quality of Brainwavz Audio equipment.   I have several of their headphone hangers in my home and they are strong and durable.
My son plays video games and would often leave his headphones on the floor after playing.  I found myself tripping over them, so I purchased the Brainwavz headphone holders to keep them up off the floor and in a place where they can be stored, kept clean and be found easily.
The Brainwavz headphone holders come in various styles and can be used anywhere.  
Hengja - metal adustable headphone hanger.  This can be used to store both large and small headphones.  

Truss - This dual headphone hanger is all metal.  It has a strong adhesive 3M VHB™ tape that allows you to adhere them anywhere you would like.  The bond is very strong.  I have a Brainwavz earphone hanger that has this adhesive and it hasn't budged in 2 years.  It is as strong now as it was the day I installed it.

Hooka - Made from die-cast aluminum.  It is also design…

Don't Forget Your Pet's Presents This Christmas

Santa is coming soon and will be bringing gifts for everyone in your family, but don't forget your little furry friends who bring you so much love and companionship!

This month I selected a very special item from to give to my puppy nephew for Christmas! The All Kind Tug and Fetch No Squeak Bow Dog toy is well made with quality materials.  It has a nice raised pattern that makes it easy for dogs to grab and also helps clean their teeth.  

Another bonus is that this dog toy doesn't have a squeaker.  It is nice for having quiet play time with my puppy nephew and I am sure my sister will appreciate it too.  This is a fun way to help my puppy nephew get some exercise for his muscles.
This  All Kind Tug and Fetch No Squeak Toy comes in various colors and is available in a small or large size.  I picked the green and red because it was Christmasy.
Right now Chewy is having a Buy 1 Get 1 Free on this item, so it is a good time to stock up or pick up a few for your furry friends…

Save on the Winc Monthly Wine Subscription

I am so excited!  I received my one month subscription box from Winc and I am very pleased with the selections that I received. I got three red wines and one rose'.  2 were corked and 2 were twist off.  I personally enjoy all kinds of wine.  I prefer dry but like to try new wines. Lately I have been experimenting new dessert wines.  They are perfect for serving to guests, especially during the holidays.
Let me tell you a bit about the Winc Monthly Wine Subscription.
The process to get started with the Winc Monthly wine subscription box was so simple.  I was asked to take Winc's 6 Question Palate Profile Quiz, and based on my answers was matched up with wines they felt I would enjoy.  I did change out one of their recommendations for another bottle.
Winc's monthly wine subscription boxes make a great gift for any wine lover and they are a great way to try new wines from different regions.  
Check out my video explaining what you receive in your monthly box:

Winc is a modern wine…
