Memory Foam Cool Knee Pillow with Cooling Gels Pads (review)

 Disclosure: I recently received the Memory Foam Knee Pillow with laminated cooling gel pad and washable cover for free for my unbiased and honest review. The opinions expressed are my own! 

 I will admit, at first, that I wasn't sure if I could sleep comfortably with a pillow between my knees.  I had tried a regular size pillow in the past under or between my knees  after arthroscopies of my knees and back surgeries to get comfortable on my sides, without success! I've got sciatica and restless legs. I found that the mats on the sides of the pillow helped with keeping it from getting warm between my knees. The memory foam part of the pillow was quite comfortable, and it didn't feel "squished" to me in anyway. Bridge To Bright Future made the pillow, and they recommended it for those who are post-op from hips and knee surgeries, during pregnancy, and for those with hip, ankle, knee, joint, and back pains. It was comfortable for me! I did notice that I tended to not wake up with it between my knees because I probably change position a lot in my sleep, and it ended up on the bed near my knees! The zippered cover can be removed and washed in cold water and air dry. There is a picture below of it before I went to sleep with it between my knees.
 I do recommend this pillow!  For more information, you can check it out at :  Memory Foam Knee Pillow  .

Brilliwalli Slim Front Pocket Wallet RFID Card Holder Genuine Leather Minimalist Wallets (Review)

Disclosure:  I received the wallet for a reduced price for an unbiased review. The opinions expressed are my son and mine!

Steven was happy to give a review of the slim front pocket wallet RFID card holder, made of genuine leather. It's one of the new minimalist wallets! The pockets are on the outside of the wallet for 6 cards on each side. Then there are two narrow pockets behind the card pockets on each side, where you could hide a key or some change. The bigger pocket in the very mild is where you can store your paper money. Or you could say that it holds up to 12 cards or 8 cards and 10 bills. What Steven seems to like is that it is compact and easy to carry in his pocket or backpack or sling bag. He doesn't really carry much yet in line of cards, like a drivers license, debit card, and insurance card---- and a few other cards of some kind. Just enough to carry to high school or to work or out when he goes out with his friends or us (the family)! Enclosed in the Brilliwalli box was a lanyard and a id badge holder, too. He hasn't used those yet.

The important parts to know about the wallet, the id badge holder and the lanyard  are that they are  made of genuine leather, and that they have a matte black finish. The RFID Blocking works at a frequency of 13.56 MHz and blocks signals on credit cards, debit cards, ID cards, and more.* Please note that it doesn't block signals from ID cards, hotel or motel room cards, and a few other kids. * This wallet is bulky by no means! Brilliwalli Slim Front Wallet with RFID
Those are my hands holding the wallet for the pictures! We give it a thumbs up!

E-Book review of "Where is My Home?"


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

I've reviewed books for children and adults on my blog. The book in today's review is one in a series of e-books that I have reviewed in the past in the Terry Treetop series. It is for those who are just learning to read or for an adult to read to a child, for ages 3-8.  I found this book to be quite cute,  and the pictures were adorable. This book was written by Tali Carmi, and illustrated by Mindy Liang. 

Terry started to follow a butterfly and talk to it. The butterfly did not respond to him, and he decided to follow it. The next thing you know, he's lost. He runs into several other animals along the way. In the end, he does get home. I do recommend this book for parents or other family members who read to children in their families, or for the young readers! To find out more about this e-book, check out : "Where is My Home"   .

College Bound and Gagged (e-book review)



Disclosure: I received this e-book for free in order to facilitate my review. The opinions that are expressed are mine.

Do you have a junior or senior in high school right now? Or even a college age child living with you?
I've got a high school senior right now, and he will be graduating in less than 2 months! Oh boy and whew, I say! "College Bound and Gagged" was written by Donna Kristine Manley. I was definitely interested in reading it, since I needed all of the help that I could get on helping Steven with college information. It's been many years since my husband and I have been in college. I felt clueless about what information to pass onto our son!

In the book, Donna wrote the information in "tidbits". Each nugget of information was a tidbit! She mentioned about how colleges and universities look at a student's online presence when considering admissions. Websites, social media activity/behavior, podcasts... the list goes on. Anything thing that you say or do could affect whether or not you get into a university or college. Applying for financial aid or scholarships can help pay for your education. Course load... don't take multiple hard classes in the same semester! Study groups can be beneficial, if they are kept small, 4-6 people. Classes online or in the classroom? At a community college or university, you may have a smaller or larger student to instructor ratio. What about getting tutoring? Taking time off between high school? Apps that can help the college student?  Working abroad?  Getting reviews on instructors from other students?
These are many of the subjects that she touches in her tidbits. I found the e-book to be quite informative! I do seriously recommend it! Where to find out more information on the book: College Bound and Gagged  .

Sagano Charcoal Teeth Whitening Powder with Cinnamon (review)

Disclosure: I received the Sagano powder for a reduced price for my unbiased review. The opinions expressed are my own!

I recently reviewed Sagano Charcoal Teeth Whitening Powder with Cinnamon. I have used it about three times a week or more for a few weeks now. I have used it with and without toothpaste on my toothbrush. If I use it with toothpaste, I put a bit of toothpaste on my brush then I dip the brush onto the powder slightly ( just to get what the package tells you to use---- a pinch). My teeth have been discolored from when I took iron products as a very young child. This product helped to make my teeth cleaner and my breath fresher. I really couldn't tell if my teeth were any whiter, though. I don't notice any new staining from coffee or tea since using this product, though!! The taste of the powder was mild to me, I didn't notice the cinnamon so much. I do like using the product and will continue to do so. If my teeth become whiter from the product, I will update you. I did receive this product for a reduced price for my unbiased review. For more information, you can check the  powder at Sagano Charcoal Teeth Whitening Powder with Cinnamon . 



New York Biology (NYB) Anti-Cellulite Massage Oil (review)

Disclosure:  I received this product for a reduced price or for free in exchange for my unbiased review of the product. The opinions expressed are my own.

I don't know about you, but I know that I have cellulite. :O(   I was eager to try New York Biology's Anti-Cellulite Massage Oil to see what it could do for my thighs.  I was excited about the smell of the massage oil,  because it's a bit citrus-y and has some eucalyptus oil in it! What a lovely blend!

Let me tell you a little bit about the product and using it... you apply it to damp skin after showering or bathing and massage it on your skin. The oil doesn't penetrate the skin, and it didn't seem to make my skin feel greasy. It contains grapeseed oil, eucalyptus oil, lemon oil, and grapefruit oil. I didn't entirely understand how it worked, but my skin on my thighs felt smoother and toned, and the skin felt softer. I have used it on dry and damp skin, but noticed more smoothing with the damp skin first. I still have cellulite, though.  You can find it at  NYB Anti-Cellulite Massage Oil .

Tactical Credit Card Tool (review)

Disclosure: I received the tactical credit card tool for a reduced price for my unbiased and honest review.


The opinions expressed are my own. Have you ever seen an easy to carry tactical tool card? Survival Hax has a tactical credit card sized tool kit that you could literally fit into your wallet! It definitely could be packed into your wallet or backpack on a camping or hiking trip. It contains an opener, a compass and magnifying glass, a fire starter, a knife with hex tool, a toothpick, tweezers, a whistle (and boy is it shrill!), a paracord, and a blade sharpener. Also, one side of it, you can find a mini ruler of 3 inches and a centimeter measure of 6 cm. The tools that are included on the "card" have a grip area to aid you in removing them, and those are the fire starter, the knife, the opener, and the toothpick and tweezers.

I really like that the tools are compact in size, and that they fit securely into the case! The paracord and whistle can be attached to the case through a triangle shaped hole in the corner.  The tool card contains pieces that may be sharp and have to be handled carefully. Definitely not something to leave around the children.  I could imagine my husband and son taking it with them fishing, and putting it in the tackle box. Son plans to go hunting someday, and it would be handy for him to take on a hunting trip. I seriously do recommend it! Survival Hax

Life Lately

Hi all! Sorry for no posting in awhile, much less no holiday posts. I was busy most of last month working overtime at my nursing job, the rest of the time was spent trying to get sleep, do laundry, spend time with the son and the husband and our birds. Shrek, our lovebird, got one of his toes badly attacked by Macy, our Quaker parrot at some point during that time--- well, in late November. He subsequently had an amputation of part of the toe and a few vet visits. Steven turned 18 last month and got a part time job! He still needs his drivers license. He has a restricted, but needs the practice in order to take the driving part! And of course, we need to add him onto our insurance!
It took me till the week of Christmas to get Christmas cards out. I still have a ton of reviews to do!
