Product Review: Liztek JSS-100 HD Water Resistant Bluetooth 3.0 #ShowerSpeaker

*I received the product in this post for purposes of review. All opinions are my own.

Check it Out! I love to listen to music but I don't really get the chance unless I am in the car.  We only have one stereo system and it's out in the den. Listening to music in the bathroom has never been an option unless I used my phone.  I don't have a super great phone so the sound quality leaves little to be desired. So when I got the opportunity to review a shower speaker, I was super interested!
Not too long ago I received a Liztek Water Resisitant Bluetooth Shower Speaker for review and once I finally got the opportunity to fully check it out and learn how it works, I am in love with it!
I never realized that I could use my phones bluetooth connection to listen to music while I was in the shower.  But I sure am glad I discovered it!  Taking showers has become a little more lively!

I received the green Liztek Shower Speaker and it's perfect because my bathroom just happens to be green!  This speaker also comes in yellow and blue.  Such fun colors.  It has a big suction cup on the back that allows for a tight and secure hold to the wall and it is totally waterproof.  You don't have to worry about getting it wet!  
The LizTek Shower Speaker has high definition Bluetooth 3.0 audio wireless connectivity with seamless streaming. It is universally compatible with Android and iPhone tablets as well as smartphones, iPods, MP3 and MP4 players and other Bluetooth enabled digital players.  It has easy access to hands free talking along with volume control, fast forward (skip), back, pause, play and power buttons so you don't have to step out of the shower to control what you are listening to and to answer the phone.

I really love how simple it is to connect my phone and be able to enjoy 6 hours of continious playtime!  You can wirelessly connect from up to 33 feet away so you can keep your device at a safe distance away from the water.  The built in rechargeable battery allows you to fully charge with the USB charging cord that is included with the speaker in just 3 hours. 
Because it is water resistant, the Liztek Shower Speaker is perfect for not only the shower, but the pool, on a boat or even in the kitchen.  When you get a call, you can answer and hangup without having to touch the phone!  How convenient is that?

#TBCCrafters Craft Hop - Matchbox Jewel Box

Check it Out!  I received an Origami Owl locket for Christmas and I LOVE it!  I have always wanted one because I just adore the ability to open the locket and change out the stones and charms according to theme.  
I have discovered that you can find the little charms in many different places.  Amazon for one and I found them at a very reasonable price at my craft store!  Since I got a gift card to Joann's for Christmas I was able to purchase some extra stones.  Now these things are tiny so I was thinking about how I could store them.  I don't have a traditional jewelry box and I think they are a little to small and would get lost in there anyway so I wanted to come up with another way to store them. 
So the other day I needed some matches to light a candle and I found a good little stash of these small matchboxes.  

As I was opening the box to get out a match I thought about how my little charms would fit nicely inside and a new idea was born!

My supplies for this Mini Matchbox Jewel Box included:
  • 3 Mini Matchboxes
  • Patterned Scrapbook Paper
  • Jeweled Brads for the drawer handles
  • Beads for the feet
  • Ribbon
  • Assorted embellishments
  • Glue - Double sided tape and E6000 adhesive

The first thing I needed to do was connect the boxes to create one piece.  Using double sided tape I stacked and adhered them together.

I wanted to make it easy to get my items in and out of the little drawers so I needed some drawer knobs.  I used these gorgeous jeweled brads as my knobs by simply punching a hole in the front side of the drawer, attaching the brad and folding the ends over on the inside.

Using the back side of the drawer as my template I cut pieces of paper to line the insides of the drawers.  

I needed to cover the matchboxes to hide the writing and those gaps between the boxes, so I chose my patterned paper to match my jeweled brads.  I cut a strip to fit around the outside and adhered it with double sided tape. Then I just slid my drawers into place.

Using 4 small coordinating beads, I created feet for my box.  I simply glued them to each corner of the bottom of the box with the holes facing down.

I then embellished it with ribbon and assorted items.  
I really love how it turned out and it is indeed perfect for my little collection of beads and charms.  I can't wait to fill it up!

Product Review: Portollano Womens High Fashion #OrangeGloves

*I received the product in this post for purposes of review. All opinions are my own.

Check it Out!  When you live in the south, you don't really expect a lot of cold weather, but here in Georgia, the winters have been pretty brutal!  With all the cold weather we have been having lately, we have needed a lot of cold weather gear.  Boots, coats, scarves and gloves.  I was super excited to get to review a pair of Portollano Womens High Fashion Winter Gloves this year.  These lovely gloves came in the color orange.  Orange is not an easy color to find.  I know this because my daughter's favorite color is orange and I look for that color specifically for her.  

These gloves are fashionable and designed for superior warmth.  They are made with finger lengths sized just for women. They are comfortable, warm and very functionable because they fit so well.
If you have a favorite sports team with orange colors these are the perfect addition to your cold day game outings! And these are a great gift idea for that orange loving friend that has evertything!

Product Review: #BeeSiliGadgets Silicone Oil & Sauce Bottle & Basting Brush

*I received the product in this post for purposes of review.  All opinions are my own.

Check it Out!  I love kitchen gadgets.  Finding products that make the time I spend in the kitchen easier is awesome.  Finding ones that are fun too is a bonus!  I love making my family cheddar bay biscuits.  You know like the biscuits you get at Red Lobster?  Yeah, those yummy garlicky goodies!  Usually I have to just spoon the buttery topping over the biscuits because I just haven't found a basting brush that I like but recently got the opportunity to review the Bee Sili Silicone Oil & Sauce Bottle with Basting Brush and I have to say I really like it!  It's not your typical basting brush.

Not only are you getting a quality eco-friendly oil and sauce basting brush but it is really durable.  It is made from non-toxic Bpa Free FDA approved silicone and is dishwasher safe.  This is a three in one tool that allows you not only to baste but store your vinegar, oils or sauces right in the bottle. I find that very convenient.  You can just drizzle oil from the bottle or turn it over and us the basting brush.

The basting brush is a generous size and allows for complete coverage. And that gives my biscuits and other recipes a perfect finish.  Oh and each end comes with a cover for easy and clean storage.

Product Review: Health Gurus Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor #greatergoods

*I received the product in this post for purposes of review.  All opinions are my own.

Check it Out!  Checking your blood pressure is usually something that people do at the doctors office.  However there are many times that the need arises to check it at home.  If you don't have a blood pressure monitor, that means a trip to one of those kiosks at the store.  If they are anything like the ones around here, they are either broken or being used.  These machines can also be unreliable since they are messed with so much.  So I think it's a good thing to have a blood pressure monitor in your home.  When my husband got really bad off and started requiring oxygen on a continued basis, it became imperitive that I check his blood pressure regularly.  So when I got the opportunity to review a monitor I jumped at the chance and I had it when I needed it most.  I received the Health Gurus Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor.

This Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor comes with everything you need including the batteries.  It has a large one size fits all upper arm cuff as well as an easy to read backlit LCD monitor.  It records up to 120 readings and stores them in memory. And you also get a handy storage case that conveniently stores everything inside and makes transporting it easy and safe. 
I have always been a little apprehensive about taking a blood pressure reading myself, because we never had a monitor that was this easy.  No pumping, counting and listening with this monitor. Just attach the upper arm cuff according to the directions and push one button for an accurate blood pressure and pulse reading.  That's right, this machine also reads the users pulse and has an irregular heart beat detector.

I can not stress how enough how easy this machine is to use and how much I am glad that I have it.  It has made keeping track of readings super easy and quick.  It literally just takes a few minutes to use so even kids don't get frustrated.
