(Product Review) Baby Car Mirror Bundle - Improved Shatterproof Glass - Best Backseat Baby Mirror for Car




This Baby Car Mirror Bundle - Improved Shatterproof Glass - Best Backseat Baby Mirror for Car includes a baby car mirror, a set of silicone spoon and fork, a BABY ON BOARD sign and an eBook.

I ordered this as a gift since I am expecting a new grandchild soon. The mirror is pretty cool. The convex shape, and 360 degree rotation means that it can be easily adjusted to just the perfect angle so you can quickly and easily glance into the backseat where your little one is riding and get a good look at them when needed.

The mirror comes completely assembled, so it is quick and easy to mount on just about any headrest. It is sturdy and made from a shatterproof glass for safety. Along with the baby mirror, you also get a Baby On Board sign that can be held to your car window by a suction cup.

There is also a silicone fork and spoon set that changes color if the food is too hot. I really like this safety feature, and I'm sure the new parents will also appreciate it. I didn't test the silverware to verify how accurately it measures food temperatures, but I can tell you that the mirror worked great in their car.

Although the baby won't be born for a few months yet, the dog was happy to give us something to look at in the back seat. We were able to see him quite clearly in the mirror.

(Product Review) Karnotech 2.4Ghz Wireless Mouse with USB Receiver 1200 DPI Portable Mice with Mute & Hidden Windows & Lock Screen Keys (VMW-172 Black)




I recently got this Karnotech 2.4Ghz Wireless Mouse with USB Receiver 1200 DPI Portable Mice with Mute & Hidden Windows & Lock Screen Keys (VMW-172 Black). It was easy to pair and seems to work well.

It fits comfortably in my hand, and is easy to use. The size is just a little smaller than my previous mouse, which works well for me since my hands aren't extremely large. The mouse is powered by a AA battery.

In addition to the standard buttons it has a couple of extra buttons that you may or may not enjoy having on your mouse. One button shrinks your windows and mutes things, which would maybe be good for those who wanted to hide their activities when the boss came in. I haven't really found a situation where I would need to use this button, but I am sure it would be useful for some.

The other button is a lock screen button which will lock things up on your computer. I really don't care for the location of this button since it is close to where my thumb naturally rests. I haven't bumped the button yet, although I have come close, and have read other reviews from those who have. I think that the button could be moved to a better location, although it really doesn't bother me since I haven't accidentally bumped it yet. I suppose I would be less satisfied with this mouse if I were to bump it a few times when I didn't want to, but since this hasn't happened yet, I am quite happy with it. If my opinion changes I will update, but for now I would be happy to recommend this wireless mouse.

The UNITED GRASS SMOKERS LOCAL 420 8oz Stainless Steel Flask by Maxam® is a fun item for those who like to party. The graphic on the front of this flask says United Grass Smokers Local 420.

The flask came discreetly packaged in a plain white box, so if you are worried about others seeing what type of purchase you made, you needn't worry about this one. Inside the box you will find the flask and a warranty paper.

The flask is made of stainless steel and holds 8 ounces of your favorite liquor. The lid is easy to put on and remove, and is attached so you won't be setting it down and losing track of it.

I have only used it a few times so far, but found that it is very easy to conceal in a pocket or purse, and that it does not leak. It is quite attractive, and is a good conversation piece. I have gotten several compliments, as well as multiple comments on my new flask.

(Product Review) Karnotech 2.4G Bluetooth Wireless Rechargeable Keyboard Ultra Slim Portable for Windows, iOS, Android, Mac OS X (VMK-42 White)



This Karnotech 2.4G Bluetooth Wireless Rechargeable Keyboard Ultra Slim Portable for Windows, iOS, Android, Mac OS X (VMK-42 White) is a nice, compact Bluetooth keyboard that was pretty easy to pair with my phone.

The keyboard measures 11.25 inches by 4.875 inches, and is 3/8 inch thick. It has the standard qwerty layout, so it is easy to use.

The keyboard came in a box with the micro USB charging cable and a user reference sheet which makes it super simple to get started. I had no problems using this keyboard at all, and because it is fairly small it is easy to take along when away from home.

It really simplifies things like texting from my phone since this keyboard is much easier for me to use than my phone's keypad. It is compatible with Windows, iOS, Android, Mac OS X and although I have only tested it on Android phones, it worked very well for me.

I ordered the Vorfreude® 10 Pack Cable Clips & Cord Management Drops 3M Self Adhesive Stick On Organizer for Car, Ethernet, PC, USB, iPhone, HDMI, or Desk (Large Single 1) Black to try to keep them more neat and organized.

The cable clips are the perfect size for my charger cables or any other cables of a similar size. Just peel the backing off and the 3M self stick adhesive can adhere your clips to your desk, night stand or wherever you need to keep your cables in place.

I have only been using them for a short time, but they seem to be doing the job very well. I ordered the large black single cord type, but these are also available in white or multicolored as well as some different styles and types.

This comes with a detachable cord, which makes it easy to take along wherever you need it. Also, this would be great for travelers since it comes with 3 different travel adapters which can be plugged in to convert this charger for UK/AU/EU use. This is available in your choice of black or white. It works well, and has a nice appearance. I would recommend it.

I love to use a variety of herbs in my cooking and have been growing many of my own herbs for a couple of years now.

I ordered these Chefast Herb Scissors Set - Premium Kitchen Shears with 5 Stainless Steel Blades - Multipurpose Herb Bags, Safety Cover with Cleaning Comb, Herbs eBook, and Stylish Box Included to help get the job done quickly and easily.

I have a couple of other pairs of herb scissors as well, which works great for getting the family working together on this type of project. This pair has five sharp blades which cut through the herbs with ease. The handles are comfortable, even when using them for longer periods of time.

These scissors also come with a safety cover and cleaning come, an Herb eBook and two multipurpose herb bags. The herb bags  are made of a sturdy jute material and seem to be good quality bags. They measure 12 by 10 cm and can be used for storing my dried herbs for several months.

I have only been using these scissors for a short time, but so far am finding that they work very well. I will continue using them and if any problems arise I will update accordingly. As for now, I really like these scissors a lot. They do exactly as claimed, and I love the extra bonuses that are included.

(Product Review) Secret of Happy pets Dog Treat Pouch for Dog Training - Black - Free Dog Training eBook



The Secret of Happy pets Dog Treat Pouch for Dog Training - Black - Free Dog Training eBook is a very nice little dog treat pouch. It isn't big and bulky, yet is roomy enough to bring along all the essentials for our walks.

The bag measures 7 inches tall, and is 5 1/2 by 3 inches wide which is plenty of room for a few toys, treats, and whatever else we may need. There are two zippered pockets on the outside, as well as a mesh pouch. This makes it easy and convenient to tuck your phone, keys, or whatever else you may need into the pockets where they are easy to find. There is also a built in poop bag dispenser, and a place to clip on your keys or your training clicker if you use one.

The bag comes with a waist strap that fits up to about 38 inch waists, but also has a shoulder strap so you can carry it which ever way is easier for you. The material and workmanship is good, and I think this will last for a long time. I am happy with this purchase and would recommend this treat pouch to others.

Maxam® Lockback Executive Knife Video Review




The Maxam® Lockback Executive Knife is a good quality pocket knife. The handle is pretty, and it is very comfortable in my hand. The knife is sturdy and the stainless steel blade will do well to resist rust. It was fairly sharp when it arrived, and would be easy enough to sharpen further if desired. There are no added bells and whistles, just a basic lock blade knife, which is exactly as described and I am very well satisfied with my purchase.

BNFUSA SPDRY30BP 30 Liter Dry Bag Video Review




My family loves spending time in and on the water, and have bought a few different dry bags to keep our belongings dry while swimming, inner tubing or canoeing. The BNFUSA SPDRY30BP 30 Liter Dry Bag With Carry Handle & Waterproof PVC Coating is a good quality dry bag with a 30 liter capacity. It can hold a good amount of stuff, and keeps it dry.

I tested mine in the bathtub to make sure that it worked properly, and will be taking it down the river very soon. It is made of very sturdy material so I don't need to worry about this bag being easily torn. It has a handle on the one side, plus 2 removable straps so you can use it as a backpack. It is easy to use and works very well for keeping things safe and dry.

(Product Review) Homga Cable Ties for Organization Management,Hook and Loop Reusable Fastening Black Nylon Cord Cable Wire Straps,Set of 50



When trying to organize my cords and cables, I like to fasten them together with velcro straps, so the Homga Cable Ties for Organization Management,Hook and Loop Reusable Fastening Black Nylon Cord Cable Wire Straps,Set of 50 was something that I really needed.

I love that the set came with 50 reusable wire straps in 2 size, including 30 six inch straps and 20 eight inch straps. This is a perfect variety pack because these are probably the most common sizes that I need, and if I need something a bit longer I can always combine a couple of the ties, or cut one if I need it to be shorter. These cable ties are really helping me to manage my cords and cables.

These are made from nylon material, and the velcro on these ties works well, even with repeated use. These are also a bit wider than the ones I had bought last, which makes them more sturdy than the other brand. These have an eye hole in the tail end, so you can thread the other end through it which works very well for attaching two of the ties together or for hanging the cables from a hook.

I already have a good amount of these cable ties in use, and love that there were so many that I even have some spares for more projects. These are a very useful product that has dozens of uses around my home.

(Product Review) Aster Essentials Glass Roller Bottles with Metal, Stainless Steel Roll Balls. 10ml, 1/3oz Essential Oil Roll on Bottles with 3 extra balls



I love using roller bottles for mixing, applying, and transporting my essential oil blends. I have bought a few sets of this type of bottle, and my most recent purchase was the Aster Essentials Glass Roller Bottles with Metal, Stainless Steel Roll Balls. 10ml, 1/3oz Essential Oil Roll on Bottles are perfect for Aromatherapy, Perfume, & Lip Gloss-6 pack with 3 extra balls.

This is a very nice set of frosted glass bottles. The glass is thick and sturdy, and the frosted glass helps to protect the contents from damaging UV rays. I ordered the bottles with the blue caps, although there are a variety of other colors to choose from as well.

The caps are made from aluminum, and look really nice on the bottles. These bottles have stainless steel roller balls. They even came with extra roller balls for the tops of the bottles although these feel like high quality and I don't expect that the ones I originally placed on the bottles will need replacing any time soon.

They turn smoothly and dispense my essential oil blends easily. I have had no problem with clogging, and no leaking. These bottles work well to carry the blends in my pocket or purse because the bottles are sturdy and there is no leaking, so I always have one or two blends in my pocket or purse. These are very attractive bottles that I would recommend to anyone.

(Product Review) Leader Accessories HB Regal Premium Universal Genuine Australian Sheepskin High Back One Seat Cover (Charcoal/Gray)



The Leader Accessories HB Regal Premium Universal Genuine Australian Sheepskin High Back One Seat Cover (Charcoal/Gray) is a very nice looking high back seat cover.

This cover was easy to install. You just slip it down over the back of your seat, pull the seat cover over the seat, tucking it in between the back and the seat, and clip the buckles beneath the seat, crossing them for the most secure fit.

The hardest part is reaching under the seat to connect the clips together, but that really wasn't a major issue either. It has a large pocket on the back side of the seat for backseat passengers. The seat cover is soft and comfortable, and it looks great.

(Product Review) Lucky Charm Light of the Soul Captive Light Jewelry by INNA Pendant Startonight Amazing Glow in the Dark Stone (C)




I wanted to buy one of these for my granddaughter but since her initial was unavailable I decided to get this one for my grandson instead. The Lucky Charm Light of the Soul Captive Light Jewelry by INNA Pendant Startonight Amazing Glow in the Dark Stone (C) is made for kids, and I was really glad that I bought this for my 4 year old grandson instead of any of his cousins because I doubt that the older girls would have been nearly as happy with it as he was.

The charm is made from resin, and shaped to represent a stone. It is suspended from a very piece if elasticized jewelry cord, much like a piece of fishing line. The cord is rather short, but did fit over my 4 year old grandson's head. If stretched it might have fit any of the girls as well, but it does not feel sturdy enough to withstand any amount of stretching. I would suggest supplying your own chain if you purchase this because I doubt that it will hold up for very long with the supplied cord.

As for the charm, it is nearly an inch long. The resin charm has blemishes on both the front and the back, and the initial is drawn on with what appears to be a gel pen or permanent marker. The writing is gold colored, and not the best penmanship, but since this was a gift for a young child, I can accept this.

The initial really doesn't show up very well in the daylight, but after exposing this charm to a bright light for a minute or two, it shows up much better. My grandson was happy to get this because he liked the idea of the glow in the dark pendant.

I doubt that any but the youngest of my granddaughters would have been at all excited about it. I think that this is an OK necklace for a young child, but I really don't think that even older children would be very happy with it. These would be alright as a party favor, but I personally wouldn't pay the asking price for them.
