I was sent this cell phone holder for free in exchange for my honest review.
I am having a little trouble deciding on how many stars to give this phone holder on my Amazon review and here on my blog. I had quite a bit of trouble getting the phone holder to stick to my dashboard. I removed the sticky gel pad and flipped it over to see if the other side was more sticky. As it turns out it was more sticky. I was able to get the phone holder to stick to my dash. YAY!
I check it the next day and it seemed like it was stuck pretty good. I drove around and did a few errands and it stayed in place and was very useful. There are two groves in the holder where you can adjust the tilt of your phone or GPS. You can do this easily with one hand as stated in the description on Amazon.
My iPhone 6 Plus with a case fit perfectly in the phone holder. My case makes my phone too big for some other cell phone holders I have tried. So, that is a plus that my phone fit.
In the description on Amazon it says,
Strong Sticky Silicone Gel is REUSABLE (Simply use water clean away dust from the adhesive gel pad before reusing)
I didn’t have much luck with removing the holder from my dash and t getting it to stick to the dash again. I washed it water, like suggested, and it still would not stick. I wiped it really well with an alcohol wipe and it still was not going to stick to my dash again.
See everything in my video review
But, I really like using the cell phone holder in the house on my desk or my nightstand, anywhere I want to stand my phone up. This is very convenient for using FaceTime or Tango. I like watching YouTube videos etc, and I can do that hands free, and still be able to see the screen.
So this is my dilemma. As a car dashboard cell phone holder I would have to give a low star rating. As a phone holder where is doesn’t have to use the sticky gel, it’s great. Since this review is for a dashboard car mount I will have to go with the 2 stars.
I love being a Grandma and helping my daughter take care of my grandson. It’s very important to us that he has a healthy diet including lots of fresh and organic fruits and veggies. Elliot, my grandson, is ten months old so he still needs to eat soft foods like potatoes. I was really grateful to get a chance to try out this commercial grade Potato Ricer so I could make some homemade baby food for him.
The potato ricer can rice potatoes, carrots, turnips, cauliflower, pumpkin, butternut squash, parsnips and many more fruits and vegetables according to the Amazon description. I made some boiled potatoes and put them in the ricer and beautiful fluffy potatoes came out of the Ricer, I mixed them with a little formula and a tiny bit of organic butter and pink Himalayan salt and Elliot loved them! That was easy. Then I tried to rice some cooked broccoli, which was not on the list of veggies from Expert Chef, and that did not work out very well. The broccoli was too fibrous and all the Potato Ricer really did was squeeze the juice out. I am looking forward to trying out different fruits and veggies. I think I may try some cooked apples to make an applesauce with a little cinnamon.
If you have any healthy baby food recipes you think I should try out leave me a comment below.
Check out my YouTube video of me using the Potato Ricer.

Dalvia Vitamin D-3 is packaged in an amber glass bottle, not plastic, so there is no plastic leaching into the product. Pure formulation with no salt, no sugar, no starch, no yeast, no wheat, no soy, no milk, no egg, no shellfish, no preservatives and totally gluten-free. The Vitamin D-3 comes in a liquid which is the perfect alternative for people who have a hard time swallowing pills.
I like that the product is liquid so you can choose the amount you want to take. It is easy to use you just add a few drops to your food or beverage in the desired amount you want to take. The drops are quickly absorbed into your body. I have been taking D3 for a while now and I do notice that it is helping with my mood swings and depression, and I also feel it is helping me with my sleep maintenance and overall sleep quality. This is a dream come true because I have been suffering with sleep disorders for most of my life.
Did you know that a dog’s nose is at least a million times more sensitive than our own? Imagine how painful a dry or irritated dog nose can be!
We created Snoutstik™ to help alleviate dry dog noses caused by exposure to the elements, allergies or heredity, but any dog’s nose will find relief with Snoutstik™’s core combination of healing, natural sunscreens, Shea Butter, Sweet Almond Oil and Jojoba Seed Oil.
ROSEMARY FOR SOOTHING INFLAMMATION A natural disinfectant; soothes and reduces inflammation and treats bacterial and fungal infections.
LAVENDER FOR GENTLE NOSE CARE A clean, fresh scent and calming, balancing properties; provides ultra-gentle skin care and can be applied to irritated, itchy spots as a healing aid.
PUMPKIN FOR ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE Used to treat burns and wounds; heals environmentally damaged and sensitive skin; high in Vitamin A (restores healthy skin tissue) and C (antioxidants protect skin from free radicals).
I was sent the Pumpkin Snoutstik to review. My sweet Zander is getting so old that his nose dries out and becomes crusty and full of dirt. I couldn’t wait to try the Snoutstik Nose Balm out on his sweet little nose. It was very easy to apply since it comes in a tube like lip balm, just twist the bottom of the tube and the balm will advance out the top for easy application. The Pumpkin Snoutstik is good for sensitive skin and contains Vitamins A, C, Shea Butter, Sweet Almond Oil and Jojoba Seed Oil which makes the stick very emollient and just glides on his tender skin. Zander loves his Snoutstik and his nose feels and looks so much better.
Pilates for Dancers is designed for anyone that would like to attain the dancer’s body. Pilates for Dancers was born of the idea that the dancer’s body and physique is beautiful, graceful, and lithe. At the same time, it is an attainable beauty, given the proper exercise routine and discipline.
This video has a great, limbering warm up routine, followed by over 20 explicitly broken down, step-by-step, instructions that anyone can follow. This video progresses in stages so that even absolute beginners will have no problem following along. Geared towards beginners, a lot of time is spent on explanation and proper repetition, so you get the most out of your workout.
Multiple angles make sure you don’t miss any of the important alignment, or subtle movements, Pilates can get us into.
While this video does a great job explaining each movement, it is a little slow-paced. The slow pace may be because this video is for beginners and they want to make sure that everyone understands everything about the new exercise being demonstrated.
The set is very plain without any flashy decorations or music and there are no other people in the video besides the instructor. This is a very good reference video to learn the different Pilates exercises, but I enjoy a little faster pace with some upbeat music and maybe a few more people in the video doing the exercises demonstrating the different levels of beginner to advanced for the movements.

Starts Out 33 Feet and Expands to 100 Feet with Water Pressure, Release Pressure and Hose Returns to 33 Feet
Lightweight will Not Tangle, Twist, or Kink
100% Money Back Guarantee For A Risk Free Buying Experience
I had the opportunity to review this hose for my blog. I really didn’t know what to expect because I have never tried one of these type hoses before. When I took the hose out of the box I couldn’t believe how lightweight it was, only weighing 2 lbs. I always dreaded lugging a traditional hose around the yard, they are so heavy and cumbersome. This hose is amazing, it is soft and flexible enough to gather up and carry around anywhere you need to take it.
The hose starts out 33 feet long and expands with water pressure to 100 feet, and then shrinks back down to 33 feet for easy storage. I love that this hose does not “kink” when using it, I always get a kink when I am dragging my old hose around. I also like that there is a little on and off lever on the adapter that you screw a sprayer to, its nice to be able to control the water flow from the end of the hose you are using and not have to go all the way to the faucet to turn it off while you are using it.

I decided to make some baked chicken breasts with some fresh grated orange zest and ginger with my new Lemon Zester from Chef Proven. This is by far the best zester I have ever tried. It was a breeze to zest the orange and ginger with the sharp high-grade stainless steel blade. Sometimes ginger can be quite tough and hard to work with, but it was so easy to grate on this zester. The handle is soft and very easy to grip which was nice because you don’t want your hands to slip and accidentally grate your knuckles or finger tips. It also comes with a removable cover that you can put back on for storage in your drawer so you don’t cut yourself when getting other utensils out of the drawer. I am very pleased with this zester and I am glad that I was given the opportunity to review it.

These proprietary herbal formulas are packaged in ice pop pouches and come in two natural flavors (grape and orange) for daily or seasonal consumption.

One size fits small, medium & large hands but not extra-large hands
100% HASSLE FREE REFUND & keep the gloves
I have been using my Bee Sili Silicone Gloves in the kitchen and I love them. Having the individual fingers on the gloves makes it easier to handle things you can get a better grip. The silicone also helps in gripping things, it makes getting those pesky hard to loosen jar lids open with ease.
Since the gloves can be easily washed in the dishwasher you can use them to directly pick up the food, which comes in handy when you are grilling or making things like pulled pork or maybe hot corn on the cob.
Bee Sili gloves are also water proof so you can use them to reach into a cooler of ice and water to retrieve those can drinks from the bottom of the cooler without freezing your hands. I live in Florida so I don’t know a lot about ice scraping, but these gloves would definitely come in handy for snow and ice scraping.
I love to burn candles, especially during the holidays. They help to fill the house with the aromas of the holidays and gets everyone into that festive mood. I had the opportunity to review a gift set from Old Factory. There are 12 different scent combos to choose from and I chose the“Fall Harvest” gift set which included Pumpkin Spice, Cranberry, and Autumn Leaves; perfect for this time of year.
The candle combinations are paired together with complimentary fragrances that can be burned together or alone. The candles are hand poured in the USA using natural soy wax. They have self trimming cotton wicks and burn clean for over 20 hours, without soot or smoke, and of course they have a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
I was a little surprised by how small the candles were when I unpacked them, but then I realized that soy candles do burn a lot longer than paraffin candles, up to 50% longer. These candles are 2 oz each and burn for at least 20 hours, so the small size really doesn’t matter.
I love that these candles are made from soy and have cotton wicks because they burn much cleaner than traditional paraffin wax candles and do not produce smoke and soot. I have burned my candles several times and there is absolutely no nasty black build up of soot around the jar at all.
I really enjoy the scents from each of candles. However, the Pumpkin Spice scent is very light and when the candle is lit I really can’t smell it as much as I would like. The cranberry candle has that delicious festive cranberry scent that is so yummy and makes me immediately think of the holidays. Finally there is the Autumn Leaves scent which has an outdoorsy sort of sweet leafy scent. I am actually burning the Autumn Leaves candle now and it even has a bit of a fresh live Christmas tree scent too. I do enjoy burning different combinations of the candles together creating a unique scent.

I love to travel, but I don’t get to do it often enough, so I am not an expert packer. My Large Packing Cubes from Dot&Dothelp me to pack like a pro. The packing cubes come in a variety of colors – red, grey, purple, pink, green, orange, dark blue, yellow, black and light blue, which I chose. The fabric is a beautiful light blue with a honeycomb design and the top two-thirds of the bag is mesh, so you can easily see the contents. They also come in a variety of sizes – small, medium, large, and slim tube. I chose the large which is 17.5″ x 12.75″ x 3.25″. You can also choose a one piece or four piece set. I chose the four piece set. The cube zips shut with a dual zipper each with a very easy to grip zipper pull. There is also a convenient nylon webbing strap on the top of the cube for carrying.
The packing cubes are so convenient for keeping your suitcase organized. If you are sharing your suitcase with someone else it is easy to keep everything separate, private and organized. Unpacking is easy, you can just take out the cube that has what you need when you need it.
Of course when you get back from your travels you can either store your packing cubes in the heavy-duty zip-lock bag they come in or use them and the zip-lock bag for storing things in your closet or drawers. They are a great size for packing away your summer clothes during the winter or vice versa; or with the breathable mesh top and handle, you could even use it as gym bag. There are numerous ways to use these handy cubes rather than just packing them away waiting for the next trip.
