SleeKeys iPad Air Keyboard (Review)

Disclosure: I received free product from SleekTech via Tomoson in order to facilitate my review. The opinions expressed were my own!

 I love trying new tech equipment and gear for my tech stuff! I have an iPad Air, and I received a black SleeKeys iPad Air Keyboard to review. The case was black, and my keyboard to it came in white. At first, I was a bit confused about how to use certain keys for the upper sections of the keys on a QWERTY keyboard on the SleeKeys Keyboard. However, the more I used it, the more familiar I became with it! I was quite happy using it! It's comfortable to use!

It has a quite a few neat points that I need to mention! For one, it doesn't require bluetooth to work! Another point is that it doesn't use batteries. Now that I really have your attention... The ultra-thin magnetic keyboard, yes, you read magnetic, is what you use to type! It has a folio-style cover. I was able to fold the case and the keyboard to where I could watch videos on my iPad, due to the case being able to be placed into multiple positions. The case and keyboard are lightweight! One more thing about it... you can use the case and keyboard with the iPad Air, the iPad Air 1, and the iPad 5.
 I really like it, and I feel secure when I'm carrying my iPad in it (protects it!). For more information, you can go to SleeKeys iPad Air Keyboard .








Abigail and The North North Pole Adventure (E-book review)

Disclosure: I was given a free e-book code in order to get book from Amazon for review. The opinions expressed were my own!

I have reviewed another e-book for children  in the Abigail adventure series! This book was written by Tali Carmi and illustrated by Neda Fuchedzhieva. It's for beginner readers and for those who are between the ages of 2 to 8 years of age. This time, Abigail's adventure starts from her house, after her grandparents stopped by to visit her with the red bicycle and the magical book in the bike basket! After the adults went to talk in another room, she started looking through the book. Abigail saw some pictures of icebergs, and stated, "Take me there, let me see, show me where I want to be."

The next thing that you know, she's off, sliding down an iceberg! She sees some seals, and the bike slides into an igloo. She meets Siku, a young boy. He invites her into see what it looks like in an igloo. (What I found interesting in the book, is that the inside of an igloo is warmer on the inside than it is on the outside!) Siku let her borrow a jacket that his mother had made, and they went outside to go ice-fishing. A bear cub came into the area, and the piece of ice the bear was on broke off. The two children helped to rescue the cub with Siku's fishing spear and Abigail's bicycle. They rescued the cub! She was invited to dinner at Siku's, but she realized that she needed to head home to her house. Siku had given her a pair of gloves before she had left him. Abigail showed the gloves to her grandparents when she got back to her house!

This was a delightful book in the Abigail adventures series! For more information and where to purchase it, check it out at Abigail and The North Pole Adventure .

Terry Treetop Finds New Friends (E-book Review)

Disclosure: I was given a free e-book in order to facilitate my review. The opinions expressed are my own.

If you haven't noticed by now, Terry Treetop is in another e-book in the series for beginner readers. Terry is a boy who happens to love climbing trees, so he's called Terry Treetop. He climbed a tree up to his treehouse, and he realized that he didn't have any friends up in his treehouse to play with. He decided to go out and look for some new friends.  Along the way he met a bee, a lamb, a chicken, and  a cow. They were too busy making things for children to eat, stay warm, and to drink. He was sad. He came across a kitten who was stuck up in a tree and  she couldn't climb down. All of the other animals came to the scene, but they couldn't climb the tree to rescue her. Terry Treetop climbed up the tree to rescue her. All of the animals were happy, including the kitty, and they threw Terry a party. Now he had friends!

This is a great beginner's book for those children who are learning to read, and for parents to read to their young ones. Tali Carmi wrote the book, and Mindy Liang illustrated it. For more information and to order the book, go to Amazon.com.

Reach it Grab it: reacher grabber pick stick (Review)


Disclosure: I received free product in order to facilitate my review. The opinions expressed are my own!

Due to having neck and back surgery in the past few years, I can't quite bend and reach into my washer and dryer to get laundry or reach for items up on the fridge or in the pantry like I used to be able to do. Plus, there have been times when my husband or son haven't been home to reach for items for me! Those are the times when I could use a reacher to grab small or lightweight items!

I was lucky to review the Reach it Grab it grabber pick stick at a time when I needed one! This product is made by Calibre Products, and it is definitely strong and durable! Yes, those words are on their packaging, but I really feel that the grabber has been strong and durable for me! I have lifted a towel or so at a time out of the washer and into the dryer with this product---though I didn't get my son to take a picture of it for me. I have used the grabber to reach small items from over the fridge and in our pantry that I normally can't reach to get due to being 5'5"and with the neck/back issues!

The grip on Reach it Grab it is comfortable and easy to hold onto! The grabber part can be turned about 90 degrees to grab around an item horizontally. Did I tell you that it's rustproof and that it can be used outdoors? I haven't used mine outdoors yet, but I'm happy to know that it can be used when I need it outside! I would recommend it to those who need help picking up or grabbing items that they can't reach without straining! It really has helped me a lot!

IArrow iPhone 6 Plus Tempered Glass Review

I love my iPhone 6 Plus that I got back in November when my father was down here with us. Steve was lucky enough to find me a sturdy case in the color pink! There was one thing that I didn't have for it, though. He was talked out of buying a screen protector by our phone company, who shall remain nameless! When I was given a chance to review one, I jumped on wanting to review it!

Today, I'm reviewing the IArrow iPhone 6 Plus Tempered glass protector! (Bear in mind that my iPhone 6 Plus case took me at least 2+ weeks to remove, and even Steve had to step in and help me take it off! Sad, but true!) The IArrow iPhone 6 Plus Tempered Glass was so much easier to apply, and I was happy! It came with with a cleansing wipe to wipe the phone's touch screen clean, two little  suction cups to assist in placing the tempered glass screen protector, a wipe cloth and of course a tempered glass protector.  I removed the phone case, because I wasn't sure how much of the surface  the screen protector was going to cover. I could have left it on, though! The process with using all of the above supplies to apply the tempered glass is on the back of the cover paper to the kit, the one with the macaw on it.

It's been on for over a week now, and I haven't got any scratches or cracks on it! It feels smooth to touch and I felt like I was touching my iPhone's screen with the ease that I could use it! The corners on the tempered glass protector are rounded and they provide a comfortable grip---no rough edges!  The protector is almost invisible! Prior to the protector, my iPhone had been dropped about 3 times in the house by accident. Since then and with the tempered glass protector, I have been more careful! I do recommend that if you've got an iPhone 6 Plus, to get their tempered glass protector!  They do carry tempered glass protector for other phones, too! For more information, check them out on Amazon.com. And, did I forget to mention that they have an amazing double guarantee?!




Okay, so I just took the front part of my case off, but it still took 2+ weeks!

KissMe Organics Organic Matcha Ceremonial Grade (review)

I have tried a few different kinds of tea in the past year, and the latest one is the one that I'm reviewing for you today. This tea is called the KissMe Organics Ceremonial Grade Matcha.
This matcha was smooth, and had a pleasant taste to it. It was easy to make, just add 1/2 tsp (1g) of the Organic Matcha powder to a bowl or a cup. I used a small coffee cup. Next, you add 3 ounces of hot water (175 degrees). Next you whisk well in zigzag patterns until the Matcha is blended and is frothy. You can adjust the matcha according to your taste. Since I wanted to taste it sooner than later, I put about 2 ice cubes in it! I liked the smooth taste!

I have a few things to tell you about the Ceremonial Matcha! Well, for starters, it comes with an e-book of recipes on what you can make with the organic Matcha.( I haven't tried it the recipe book yet. I'm thinking of a smoothie with it sometime!) Their Matcha has been recognized by the United Nations, that it very interesting! It's grown in the top tea-producing region of Shizuoka region in Japan. The farm that it's grown on has over 100 years of organic farming experience. The tea leaves are of the first harvest. This tea works as a stimulant and as a relaxant!     It has 137x the antioxidants of brewed green tea.  I was quite happy with it, and would recommend it!

New Reese's Spreads (Influenster VoxBox review)

Disclosure: I received this product complimentary for testing purposes. The opinions expressed are mine and my son's.

Have you tried any nut spreads recently? I do have one to share information and our thoughts about it---Reese's Spreads in the peanut butter chocolate! The minute I opened the jar, son was grabbing two spoons out of the utensils drawer! The boy loves anything with chocolate and peanut butter in it, and he was definitely pleased with the Reese's Spread! I really liked it, too, though it's a bit sweet for me! (I've been trying to cut out sweets, due to being pre-diabetic.) So far, and our jar is empty and finished, he had spoons of it. I had a few spoons of it with him, and I paired it with a couple of brown rice cakes and some matzo bread that Steve bought me. Oh my goodness! both were great with the Reese's spreaded over them! What I didn't get to pair them with but wanted to were the following foods: celery, carrots, cinnamon graham crackers, just to name a few!

Here are some other pairings with the Reese's Spread that are also recommended: With pita chips (preferably the plain ones, maybe even Stacy's cinnamon and sugar ones would taste great!), vanilla wafers, banana chips, pretzels, fruit (as in apples, pears, grapes---yum!), and even bacon!

Reese's Spreads are now available nationwide at food, mass, drug, and convenience stores in 13 ounce jars that retail for $3.89.  If you asked Steven and me, we'd tell you to try it, you'll like it!
The pictures are larger to show you the product and what I paired it with!
