Handblown Glass Water Decanter

 

One-of-a-Kind Piece of Art

I love having my own unique piece of handblown glass art. I am so thankful that Bib & Sola offered to send me this decanter to use and review, if I would pay the shipping. I am enjoying using it and it is a beautiful addition to my glassware.

Unpacking my new Bib & Sola handblown decanter

 

It’s always nice to do a little something special when you have a friend come visit. Using this decanter was not only a great conversation starter but it made the moment feel special. It was nice to sit out on the porch and serve cool water out of my one-of-a-kind piece of art decanter. I just used two small clear water glasses that I already own, because I don’t have the matching tumblers

It is the perfect size for a bedside water decanter. I always wake up thirsty in the middle of the night, and I don’t want to get up and go to the kitchen. I always have a glass of water by my bed. The decanter is much prettier than a plain water-glass. The perfect item to add to a guest room to pamper your guest.

I am using my own glass, but this decanter does have a matching glass tumbler.

 

Holds 1.2 L 

The decanter has a nice long neck, to hold while pouring, with a little pouring lip built into the top rim. It holds 1.2 L of liquid, and has a nice weight to it. The glass has a good thickness to it, and does not appear to be thin or fragile. I like the pop of color that was hand blown into the bottom of the decanter making each one distinct.

Diamond Cut® 24pc Cutlery Set in Wood Block Review

Diamond Cut®

24pc Cutlery Set in Wood Block

I didn’t realize how old my set of kitchen knives in wood block are. Of course I have purchased other knives (love my Santoku knives) that I just keep in a drawer, but I like the convenience of having the knives in view and easily accessible when I’m cooking. When I was offered a chance to review this huge set of knives with a wood block I was very eager to try some new knives and replace my old ones.

Knife Set With Wood Block Review

You Get What You Pay For

On the box it says this set is a $115.00 USD open stock value, but on Amazon they sell for $21.52 USD.  Oh boy would I be upset if I paid anything close to that $115.00 price. I thought 24 pieces and a wood block what a great deal.  Well, unfortunately, that old saying “you get what you pay for” IS true.

cutlery set

The wood block is unfinished and rough. Also, I think It’s a generic wood block and  not made specifically for this set because the knives fit a little weird, and it’s hard to tell what spot the knife goes in. There are not enough spaces to put all the knives either.

The knife blades are made out of stainless steel. I think they are  a little too easy to bend. As for the diamond cut blades, they are not  much sharper than my old set of knives. The diamond cut on the blades is a little rough too.

cutlery set review

One of the rivets is missing from the handle.

The  polypropylene handles are fused to the blades creating  one piece. The knives and blades are dishwasher safe.

cutlery set

Large variety, but not well made.

Budget Friendly Cutlery Set

With 24 pieces you do get a large variety of knives plus kitten scissors, cheese knife and pizza cutter. The scissors don’t come apart for cleaning. For someone on a budget, maybe moving out for the first time, and needs a complete set of  kitchen knives, this set could be for you.  I’m not sure how long this set will last, but until you can afford a good cutlery set, at least you wold have knives. I do like the big cleaver. I have never used one before. It does feel different that a regular chef’s knife but it’s kind of fun to use.

⭐️⭐️⭐️☆☆ Stars

I give this set 3 out of 5 stars because the set is OK.  For someone looking for a cheap cutlery set that has tons of pieces, this set could be what you are looking for.

Naturalize Shiatsu Neck Shoulder Massager

Naturalize Shiatsu Neck Shoulder Massager With Heat Review 

I have  never tried a Shiatsu Neck Shoulder Massager before so I really didn’t know what to expect.  I soon found out that Shiatsu Massage is quite intense and deep. Since I am not used to that kind of rough massage I found it to be a little painful and the massager is a bit heavy and awkward.

Naturalico Shiatsu Massager

Since I don’t have a lot of experience I thought I should take the massager to someone who knows what they are doing.  My step-mother is a massage therapist so she knows all about it. I took the massager to her house and she tried it and liked it. She likes a deep Shiatsu massage and doesn’t mind the pain. A friend was also there that has a very, very  bad neck  and wanted to try it out . She thought the massager was  WONDERFUL and it really helped to loosen up her neck.

This massager uses eight silicone kneading balls plus a bi-direction movement that mimics the feeling of a personal massage with or without heat.  When the heat is on the balls glow red.

Naturalico Shiatsu Massager

The Naturalize Shiatsu Neck and Shoulder Massager has two sleeves that you put your arms through and rest the massager on your neck and shoulders. With your arms in the sleeves you can control where you want the massager on your back or shoulders.

The control panel to operate the massager.

Under the flap of the sleeve you will find the control panel to turn on the massager and operate the heat and reverse functions. After a certain amount of time the massager will automatically switch directions or you can manually switch the direction of the massaging  balls when you want.  The Shiatsu Neck Shoulder Massager has four different massage modes.

Shiatsu Neck Shoulder Massager

Turn sleeves inside out and use velcro strap for belt.

The massager can be used on different parts of your body. The instruction book that comes with the unit has pictures showing how to use it.  One way is to turn the sleeves inside out and use the velcro strap to secure it around your waist like a belt. This makes it easy to massage your lower back.

The Cons

For my overall review I would say if you don’t like painful deep massages this is NOT the massager for you.

The massager has to be plugged in when in use and the power cord is  a bit short. You have to stay close to an outlet to use it, and it unplugs very easy. I would accidentally unplug it when I moved around.

If you are sitting in a chair and lean back too hard the massaging balls will stop rotating.

The massage unit is heavy and a little awkward to use.

It takes awhile for the heat to heat up, and it doesn’t get very warm.

All Natural Fridge Odor Remover by Sagano

Activated Charcoal Odor Absorber and Air Purifier

By Sagano

odor remover

ALL NATURAL ODOR REMOVER

I like using natural products in my home as much as possible, especially around my food. I was excited to try out Sagano’s Natural Activated Charcoal Odor Remover and Air Purifier. People have been using charcoal as a natural, renewable odor remover for many years.

all natural

KEEPS FOOD FRESH

Because activated charcoal is very porous it absorbs odors, mold spores and other contaminants from your refrigerator. This helps your food to stay fresh longer and your fridge smelling better.

natural odor remover

LONG LASTING

This odor absorber can be reactivated naturally when needed by removing it from the package and sitting the bag outside in the sun. The activated charcoal will recharge in a few hours of sunlight. This bag should last up to 2 years by using this method.

I have been using my deodorizer/purifier in my fridge for over a week now and it seems to be doing a great job. I thought I would put it to the real test and see how it does with fresh-cut onion!

The onion challenge

The onion challenge

I put my freshly cut onion uncovered in the fridge. I went back later to check to see how it smells now in the refrigerator. When I opened the door I was surprised that I didn’t smell onion. I then opened the door to the freezer and could smell a slight onion aroma.

I removed the onion from the fridge and shut the door. I went back and checked the freezer later and no more onion smell at all on either the freezer or refrigerator side.

You can see in the picture above that there are air vents all over the container to let the air flow through the charcoal with ease.

I give this product 5 out of 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
