2 USB Reading Lamp with Flexible Gooseneck

This USB Reading Lamp is small, flexible and gives off a good amount of light.  It has a flexible neck that can be positioned any way you would like.
I have a laptop that has keys that don't light up.  I usually use it in my family room.  The lighting is very poor in that room and I have a hard time seeing the keys.  This light is perfect for me.  I just plug it into my laptop and it sheds light on my entire keyboard.  Also at night when I am working on my posts and my husband is asleep I can work on my laptop without disturbing him because the light is focused directly on my keyboard without lighting up the entire room.
I have the option of using 1 or 2 of the built in lights on this reading lamp.  With a quick click of the switch it goes from 1 light to 2 light illumination. (shown in photo below)
This light fits all devices that are powered by USB port:  Laptops, Netbooks, PCs, Macs, USB Hubs and Wall Chargers.

This light is great for readers, perfect for traveling.  There is …

Forever Fused Infusion Water Bottle Review

The Forever Fused Infusion Water Bottle is eco-friendly, smartly designed and easy to use.
You simply unscrew the bottom cap, fill the canal with your favorite fruit, add cold water or any other cold liquid or spirits and allow it to infuse.
The more flavor you want, the longer you should allow it to infuse.  You can have infused water in 10 minutes.  I usually will wait a couple hours to let mine  infuse because I like a lot of flavor.
The bottle has a handle built into the top to make it easy for carrying.  It has a nice screw on cap with a wide mouth for easy drinking and pouring.
This is a great way to get more water into your diet.

Brainwavz S1 In Ear Noise Isolating Headphones

I received the Brainwavz S1 In Ear Noise Isolating Headphones to review.

It is so important to have a good pair of headphones.  I love listening to music on my Iphone when I walk and work out.  The headphones I use make a big difference in the quality of sound.   These headphones have great sound.

These headphones are very nice.  They are different from typical in-ear headphones.  They have a flat cable that really makes a big difference.  They don't get tangled up like most headphones do.  The cable is also a nice long length. The carry case, which is included, is smartly made as well.  It has Velcro enclosures to hold the earphones and cable securely in place.  The case also has nice pockets for the extra ear tip pieces and handy clip that are included.  The tips are very comfortable and fit nicely in the ears.  They work well at keeping outside noise low and the bass response is great.

The  Brainwavz include 6 pair of silicone tips, 1 pair of Bi and Tri-flange tips, the hard …

T-Tapp Book Review

Teresa Tapp's book, Fit and Fabulous in 15 Minutes, Lose up to 2 sizes in 4 weeks with the Workout, is a very well written exercise book.

I love that all of the exercises are shown with photos in the book.  It makes it so much easier to understand and follow along.   Many times exercise or work out books will explain an exercise but not demonstrate it.  That often leads me to wonder if I am doing it right.  With the T-Tapp Workout there is no guessing.  Everything is demonstrated clearly.

A lot of the exercises are low impact, which is perfect for me.  It really is easy to follow along and I really do feel my muscles working with each exercises.  All of the exercises target different body areas for a total workout.

There is a food plan section that helps teach you to make better choices and a Q & A section for frequently asked questions.

Francois et Mimi Vintage Double Wall French Press Review

I love the beautiful French Press that I received to review from Francois et Mimi.  It is such wonderful quality and such a pretty site on my counter, table or anywhere else I choose to display it.

I have always loved making coffee in a French Press.  It gives it such wonderful flavor and aroma.  It is so easy to do and well worth the time.  I think serving coffee in a French Press to guests is a wonderful presentation and a way of showing you care.  My grandmother always used a French Press to make coffee  when I was growing up and she taught me to appreciate the technique and flavor.
Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love anything Vintage.  I love the Vintage look of this French Press Coffee Pot.  The nice thing about this is that it can also be used as a carafe.

Veri ORGANIC Soda - Simply Delicious

I try to buy healthy products for my family as much as I can and soda has always been an indulgence.  Lately, I have been taking a closer look at the ingredients that I put in and on my body and trying to make conscious changes.  
When you spend your entire life living a certain way, it can sometimes be difficult to make changes, even when you know it is the best thing for you.
I love soda. I always have loved it. Even though many of them are loaded in sugar and artificial ingredients, I couldn't help but indulge in them.  Now I don't have to feel guilty for enjoying soda because of Veri brand.

Smart Weigh Bathroom Memory Scale - Silver Review

The Smart Weight Bathroom Memory Scale is the smartest scale I have ever owned.   It is also very attractive.
This scale keeps memory for up to 8 users.  It even knows if you've lost or gained weight since your last weigh in.   If you lose weight the panel turns green when it displays your weight.

If you gained weight since your last weigh in,  the panel turns red.

The scale is so simple to use too.  Just step on it and you receive your precise readings immediately.  You don't have to set anything up to use this scale.  The Smart Weight scale has advanced sensor technology featured in the scale.  This helps to insure the one of the most accurate weights on the market.  It even alerts you if your scale has been moved or needs to be recalibrated.  The Smart Weigh SMS500 records in both lbs. and oz. and has a capacity of 440 lbs.  It uses 4 AAA batteries that are included with the scale.  It has a two-year manufacturer's warranty.

Kuuk Silicone Ice Cube Tray (Twin Pack) Review

The first thing I noticed when I received the Kuuk Silicone Ice Cube tray is that it gave me the opportunity to make a lot of ice cubes.  I love the perfect 1 inch square shapes of the ice cubes.  I use a lot of ice.  My friends tell me that I have an ice addiction.  I use a few trays each day.  I love all of my drinks ice cold.

With the Kuuk Silicone Ice Cube tray it is so easy to make perfect ice cubes every time.  Plus it is so easy to get the cubes out of the silicone trays.  A lot of plastic trays are made using harmful chemicals.  The Kuuk Silicone tray is 100% BPA free silicone, which makes them safer to use for my family.

The Kuuk ice cube trays are also great because you can use them to make other things besides ice.  You can freeze herbs and spices in the cubes.  Even baby food or sauces and juices.  The ideas are endless.  They even make great candy moulds for chocolate bars.

The Kuuk Silicone Ice Cube Trays are top rack dishwasher safe, which is very convenient to me.

Francois et Mimi Bread Box Review

I was so excited when I was selected to review the Francois et Mimi breadbox.
This is such a beautiful breadbox.  It has a sleek modern design.  It is made from stainless steel and shatterproof beveled glass.  It has a beautiful rolltop design that glides smoothly to open and close.  It looks like a piece of art on my counter top. It is simple to clean and care for.
