(Product Review) ICObuty Baby Girl Toddler New Born Elastic Bow Flower Headband



I have two granddaughters due very soon. Looking at the listing title, I thought that these ICObuty Baby Girl Toddler New Born Elastic Bow Flower Headbands would look beautiful on my new grandbabies.

These baby hairbands are very cute. There are 12 assorted colors of hairbows in the package so there will always be a great color to match any outfit. The big, 3 inch flower bows are adorned with a rhinestone pearl in the center.

Although these headbands are adorable, I don't think they are well suited for a newborn. My granddaughters aren't born yet, but I can tell already that these will be rather large for their tiny newborn heads. Not only are the 3 inch flowers pretty big for a new baby, but the bands are also rather large for them.

They measure 14 inches, and the elastic can be stretched even further. These would work well and look very nice on an older baby or toddler, as well as many older children. The listing does clearly state that these are suitable for ages 0-10 so I really can't complain about them being larger than what I needed, but wish the title were clearer since they are obviously too large for the newborns.

Aside from the size of these hairbands, the only issue I have is the possible choking hazard of the rhinestones. The seller does provide warning statements about this, and as long as parents are aware that young children should never be left unattended while wearing them, I think these would work well for many infants and toddlers. They are pretty and well made, and would make a great gift.

(Product Review) Cake Decorating Nozzle Set by KESTILOS



Over the holidays we enjoy baking a variety of goodies. The Cake Decorating Nozzle Set by KESTILOS has 23 stainless steel Russian piping tips plus 2 sphere balls, 2 couplers, and 5 disposable icing bags and even an eBook with recipes and ideas for making a variety of icing decorations.

The piping tips are larger than some of the others I have used previously, so you can quickly and easily decorate large batches of cakes or cookies. I'm still learning how to make some of the fancier pastries and have been practicing making flowers, leaves, and other fancy decorations.

These cake decorating tips work well for making beautiful cakes, cookies and pastries. I love the variety of tips because you have so many options for decorating your baked goods. Who's ready to decorate Christmas cookies?

Holiday Gift Guide for Women


In this first installment of my holiday gift guide I will cover some of my favorite inexpensive gift ideas for the ladies in your life. Of course, we all like different things, so it won't be a one size fits all kind of list. Some of us prefer useful items such as kitchen gadgets or household items, some prefer jewelry, and others maybe makeup, so I have tried to include a variety of gift ideas for your favorite ladies.


First on my list is this Tayvian Jewelry Set. This beautiful set includes a Necklace, Choker & Bracelet made from Silver Plated Alloy. I really love this jewelry set and think it would make a great gift.


The Naivo Designer Inspired Crystal Snake Chain Murano Glass Beads Charm Bracelet - Sisters Make The Best Friends-Purple Flower is another favorite jewelry item that I was able to evaluate. It is a very lovely bracelet that she is sure to love.


Who doesn't enjoy a nice massage? This Shiatsu Deep Kneading Massage Pillow with Heat can really help her to relax after a hard day. This would be a great gift for either the men or women on your list.


She might also enjoy the Rechargeable Electric Callus Remover & Foot File Pedicure Tool. This is great for exfoliating dry feet and cracked heels. More powerful than a handheld pumice stone, and leaves your feet feeling great.


There are also a variety of Hand and Body Lotions from Wick's Studio which are very nice. I was able to sample a couple of different scents and loved them all.


The Beauty Lally 10 Pieces Makeup Brush Set with Black Case and Mirror would also make a great gift for the makeup enthusiast in your life. This is a nice set with a variety of brushes for her makeup needs.


The Scented Candles Boxed Natural 3 Wick Large Soy Candle is very lovely to look at and smells wonderful too. They come in a variety of scents, so there is sure to be one perfect for all the ladies on your list.


This Bedsure Ultra-Soft Microfiber Sheet Set also makes a lovely gift. I got the 4 piece queen size set in navy, but there are other sizes and colors to choose from as well. This is a very nice set that I have been enjoying


I have also been enjoying my Comenzar 5" Flickering Flameless Candle with Remote Timer. This is a very nice, battery operated flickering flameless candle that can provide a soft glow for a relaxing evening. I have a couple of these candles in different sizes, and enjoy them all.

The SCANDINOVIA 8oz Unbreakable 4pc Premium Plastic Tumbler Set is a very nice set of high quality shatterproof glasses. They are made from BPA-free plastic, but they look beautiful.


This 6 Piece Knife Set with Square Stand by El Perfecto Kitchen features high quality stainess steel blades and a steel stand. This is a very nice set that I am enjoying in my kitchen.

This is only a small sampling of the great items I have tested. There are so many more that would also make great gifts, and I will be sharing more in another post. I hope you will enjoy these suggestions, and feel free to browse my blog for other gift ideas.

(Product Review) Native Spring Portable Ultra Bright LED Tent Light Camping Lantern Emergency Survival Flashlight



Very lightweight and easily portable. This Native Spring Portable Ultra Bright LED Tent Light Camping Lantern Emergency Survival Flashlight is ready to go wherever you need it. We have had two power outages over the past week so I was glad that I got this light just in time. I love that it can easily be hung from a variety of surfaces, and it also has a built in magnet so you can attach it to a metal surface if  you prefer.

It does require 3 AAA batteries that aren't included, but they are cheap and easy to find at most stores. This is a very handy light to have around.

(Product Review) Yosoo Sports Knee Wraps Calf Compression Sleeve



I have a lot of trouble with my knees, and have been using these Yosoo Sports Knee Wraps Calf Compression Sleeves to help support and protect my knees. They are easy to use by simply wrapping your knee, thigh, ankle or other area, then fastening it securely with the velcro.

You can wrap it as tightly or as loosely as you need, so it is always comfortable. These wraps stay in place very well, and have enough give so you can move freely, yet they support you well at the same time.

Although I do like the striped design of these, I would like to see a variety of other colors offered as well. Either way, they look good and work well so I would recommend them to others.

(Product Review) SEXYWG Women's U Plunge Bra Body Suit Backless Shaper Thong Bottom Shapewear



Do you have one of those low cut or backless blouses or dresses where anything worn under it looks horrible? I got this SEXYWG Women's U Plunge Bra Body Suit Backless Shaper Thong Bottom Shapewear to wear under a couple of these outfits.

I wasn't too sure when I took it out of the package because I didn't think this tiny piece of material could possibly fit me, but it actually did what it needed to do and looked great under my clothing. It is comfortable to wear and covers what needs to be covered without being bulky or showing where it shouldn't. Just watch the sizing chart in with the pictures and you should be fine.

(Product Review) 5000 sqare foot 5in1 Pest Repellent by igadge



If you have any sort of pest problem, you might appreciate this 5000 sqare foot 5in1 Pest Repellent by igadge. This pest repeller helps to drive away flies, mosquitoes and other pets from your home.

In addition to being an ultrasonic pest repeller though, this one has several features that none of the simliar products I have seen in the past have had. This one is a 5in1 pest repeller which also includes several extras that my other pest repellents didn't come with like the nightlight, AC socket and even an air purifier.

Although I haven't had any major pest problems to fully test how well this one works, I can tell you that I haven't had any problems since using this. I will continue testing and report back if problems arise. So far though, this seems as though it is well worth the money. As they say, and ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, so if I can prevent the problems, it is better than ridding myself of it later.

Essential Oil Box by Anji Naturals Video Review




This Essential Oil Box by Anji Naturals is the perfect solution for storing my essential oils. I love how roomy it is. I can store up to 45 of the 5-15ml size bottles plus 14 roller bottles of my favorite essential oil blends.

This three tiered box opens up to display this collection of oils so I can quickly find just the oil I am looking for. It comes with 25 pipettes and an aromatherapy eBook for your reference.

The box comes unpainted so you can customize it to your liking. It could easily be painted to match your decor, or add a coat of stain or varnish. I like the appearance of the plain pine box, but may stain it at some time in the future.

However you decide to finish it though, it is a nice looking box that includes space for a good variety of essential oils. It keeps them neat and organized, as well as protected from the light that can damage the oils.

(Product Review) Native Spring Waterproof Chalkboard Labels, 40 Pack



In an effort to try to get my home more organized, I have been picking up a few items including the Native Spring Waterproof Chalkboard Labels, 40 Pack 2 x 3.5 Inches, Black Vinyl Plastic. I have been using these to label things all over my home.

These labels are a nice size for many purposes. The size is perfect for labeling my canning jars, storage totes, freezer containers and many other items.

You can reposition them for around 20 minutes, in case you get them on crooked, but then they stay firmly in place without having to worry about your label coming off, even in the dishwasher. They are waterproof, and when using a liquid chalk marker, I can wash them off and change them to say whatever I want.

They work great for labeling my leftovers in the fridge, my freezer contents, and my cupboard contents, as well as my craft and toy bins so I always know at a glance what I have there. This is a nice set of labels that I would recommend to anyone who wants to get organized.

(Product Review) Aulker Bluetooth Wireless Mono Headset On-Ear Calling Headphone



The Aulker Bluetooth Wireless Mono Headset On-Ear Calling Headphone works well with iPhone or Android phones. It was easy to pair and has high quality sound. My calls were crystal clear, and those I spoke to said that my voice came through well on their end as well.

The earpiece fits well and stays firmly in place. It is comfortable to wear, even for long periods of time. I like that you can also wear it on either ear. The microphone is adjustable too so you can put it on an angle that works well for you.

I like the comfort and ease of this device for making hands free phone calls, and it also works well for listening to music from my phone. The buttons are easy to use, and perform a variety of functions such as answer/end phone calls, adjust volume, switch to the previous/next song, and more.

It charges via the included USB charging cable. It has a talk time of around 6 hours and a standby time of up to 200 hours. I found that this was a good value and I have enjoyed using it. I would recommend this headset to others.
