I love the new CUJO Smart Firewall.  It’s fantastic in so many ways.  I love that I can protect every item, in my home, connected to my router, with CUJO.  This is the most fascinating to me.  My Television is protected, simply by having it hooked to the router.  It’s that easy.

Another great feature, is that I can control what my 6 year old does online.  He has an iPad, and he loves being online, now I can control how long he is allowed online.  This is great, since school just came back in.  With me controlling his online time, he is more likely to study more often.

Parental controls features:

  •   parental controls for all devices
  •   internet filter
  •   time limits
  •   social media monitoring
  •  pause internet

You can connect CUJO to your router, and control CUJO with the App.  It’s so simple to hook up, it took me about 1o minutes.

The features in CUJO are amazing, and you will get so much out of CUJO.  The firewall protects malicious activity from your computer, including hacks.  You really need to go get CUJO, he’s even on sale right now.

CUJO is also super fast.  You will love this little guy.

Now Available: Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Shatter Your Senses!

Posted on September 2, 2017 in 2017 Back To School Gift Guide Reviews

The new Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Shatter Your Senses! Book is spectacular.  So many great stories in it, and all true.  I love reading the Ripley’s books.  They always tell me so much stuff I didn’t know.  For example:  SEE the world’s most expensive dress ever sold at auction, worn by starlet Marilyn Monroe and covered in over 6,000 rhinestones!

Ripley’s Believe It or Not! has always been so entertaining to me.  And, my wife just loves it, as well.  Now, my 20 year old, daughter, is into it.   And, we are getting our 6 year old, son, to look through it as well.  He’s starting to read, but he really enjoys the pictures, for now.

The new Ripley’s Believe It or Not! is on sale now, and there’s a first look at all kinds of things, including:

  • TASTE the freaky foods featured—from starfish skewers on the streets of Beijing to Australia’s witchetty grub!
  • FEEL the heat as you read about Taiwan’s traditional fire fishing!
  • SMELL the fresh air—which is sold to tourists in Guangdong Province, China, by the bag!
  • HEAR the crowds roar as performers like AcroBritt, Short E. Dangerously, Captain and Maybelle, and Hammer Head take the stage in Ripley’s Exclusive interviews, showcasing their unbelievable talents!

With over 1,500 all new—and all true—stories to immerse yourself in, Shatter Your Senses! is not just an acquired taste. With sections like Animals, Pop Culture, People, and Beyond Belief, there is something interesting for every reader—guaranteed to inform, entertain, and inspire.

Protect-A-Bed Zefiro Memory Foam Pillow is Amazing to Sleep on

Posted on September 2, 2017 in 2017 Back To School Gift Guide Reviews

I love my Protect-A-Bed Zefiro Memory Foam Pillow.  I have Stenosis in my neck, and the Zefiro pillow really helps the neck pain.  I used to wake up multiple times a night, with severe pain.  Now, I don’t wake up with any pain.  I love it!  It’s a miracle come true.

Features:

  • Soft, Light Surface
  • Increased Airflow
  • Pocketed Coil System

Zefiro is soft, and comfortable.  I’ve never had such comfort.  You can choose from soft, medium, or firm.  I got the soft, and couldn’t be more happy.  The Zefiro has done wonders for my neck.

While Zefiro’s springs compress and expand, air circulates through the pillow. Zefiro harbors 2.4 gallons (9 liters) of air cushioning, keeping you cool while you sleep.

ShowerShroom is great for collecting the excess hair

Posted on September 2, 2017 in 2017 Back To School Gift Guide kids Reviews women

I love ShowerShroom!  My wife’s hair used to clog the drain all the time, but now that we have the ShowerShroom, that doesn’t happen anymore.  It’s been a real life saver.  No more dog hair stuck in the drain either.  We take it out once a week to clean it, and that’s all.  And, I haven’t used any drain cleaners since using ShowerShroom.

ShowerShroom should be used in every home, whether it’s your home, or you are renting.  This will help in the long run.  Save yourself a headache, from having to unclog the drain.  This does that for you.  I mean, you have to clean it once a week, but no more clogged drains is HUGE!

About the Company:

In 2016, Juka Innovations Corporation was started by a couple of long-time friends in Glen Cove, NY. Serge Karnegie and his wife, Elena, kept having to clean out their ever-clogging bath tub drains. The couple have two young daughters and multiple pets in their apartment, so it’s no surprise that their drains clogged up so often. They partnered up with some close colleagues to bring the invention to life via crowdfunding platforms. The response was overwhelming and TubShroom was born. Now, thousands trust their drains to TubShroom on a daily basis.

If you have kids, you will also love the ShowerShroom.  Trust me, it collects all hair.  This item is fantastic.  I highly recommend the ShowerShroom.

You will also love TubShroom, and SinkShroom.  These items are wonderful for every drain.

Back To School Snacks for Lunch or Before Bed

Posted on August 20, 2017 in 2017 Back To School Gift Guide Reviews women

Lunch Time Made Easy

The brands, that were sent to me, are all great.  I’ve never been so happy to receive a package, for my 6 year old son, as I was to receive this package.  School hasn’t quite started yet, but I know he loves these snacks now, so I’ll be picking them up, when we go to the grocery store.

Welch’s new Fruit Rolls went over very well, with Jacob.  He loves anything Welch’s so when I offered him a fruit roll, he immediately took it.  He said, “Mommy, this is so good”.  So, I will be putting one of these Fruit Rolls in his lunch every day.

Fruit is the first ingredient in these Fruit Rolls.  That’s a huge thing with us.  We want Jacob to eat healthy, being that he has a couple heart issues.

 

Go Organically has been a favorite of Jacob’s for a while.  These fruit snacks are delicious.  The best part, you can get a coupon from their site.  Your littles will love Go Organically, as much as my Jacob does.  He always asks for them, by name.

Details of Go Organically can be found on the right side of their page, here.  Including Gluten Free, GMO Free, and USDA Organic.

My 20 year old, daughter, loves The Little Kernel.  She will put it in baggies, and take it to class, at College, with her.  She says that way she’s not making noise opening the bag, and she can portion control.  So I put some in a baggie for Jacob, and he went nuts.  He loves The Little Kernel, just as much as his big sister.  I’ll be sending this in his lunch, too.

You can read “What’s Inside” The Little Kernel, here.

We also received some awesome drinks.

I LOVE Sparkling Ice, and now they have 8 oz cans.  This will be great to send in lunches.  Sarah said she can take it in her book bag, and open between classes.  Ice has been a favorite of ours for a while.  I just couldn’t drink one of those plastic containers though.  There’s so much in there.  These little portion sized Sparkling Ice are great.  The regular bottles have so many flavors, you will definitely find one you love.

 

For the first time, I got to try Brooklyn Organics.  It’s also a great drink.  It’s a craft Ginger Ale, and Jacob was just sick the other day.  We gave him Brooklyn Organics to sip, and he loved it.  He’s not big on Ginger Ale, but he did say it had a “super” taste to it.

 

Then, there’s Aqua Ball.  My daughter loves Ariel, and you can get the Disney Characters on the Aqua Ball.  She says it’s delicious, but she also likes the Princesses, so this is a 2 for 1 deal.

Aqua Ball naturally flavored water is the only zero-sugar, zero-calorie, zero-preservative children’s beverage around. Available in four flavors and featuring fan favorite Disney and Marvel characters, AquaBall is not only fun for kids, but also smart for parents.

Check out all of the products websites listed above.  You will love that packing lunch just got easier.

GourmetGiftBaskets.com has your Back To School Treats All In One Place

Posted on August 16, 2017 in 2017 Back To School Gift Guide kids Reviews

I love GourmetGiftBaskets.com.  I was able to find my 6 year old, son, a great back to school gift, for First Grade.  He keeps saying “I’m not going back to school until I’m 14!”  But, we just keep telling him it doesn’t work that way.  So, I came across the cutest Back To School Basket, through GourmetGiftBaskets.com, that I just had to get him.  Even though school doesn’t start here, until August 28, I let him open it, but told him that he has to go back to school in order to be allowed to open it.

When he saw the Teddy Bear, in the Back To School Bear Hug Care Package,  he got an immediate smile on his face.  He fell in love.  If there was a way that I could send the teddy bear to school, without the other kids picking on him, I would.  It would probably ease the first day jitters.  However, I take him back and forth, so I can put it in the car, and have it in his car seat when he gets picked up.  He also enjoyed all the treats, in the basket, and even shared some with us.

There was a lot in the GourmetGiftBaskets.com basket.  More than I expected, and that’s the truth.  It was so cute.  Packaged all up, and he tore into it, as soon as it was dropped off.

The 12 inch Cookie Cake is really great too.  I’m thinking about sending one to Jacob’s new teacher.  I’m sure it would be appreciated.  And, she is going to have enough kids in her class, that she could probably use a nice treat, during her lunch.

There are also plenty of other treats, not just for Back To School, that are available on their site.  Click above, or below, to check out their goodies.

Legacy Brush for that extra close shave

Posted on August 16, 2017 in 2017 Back To School Gift Guide Reviews women

I love Legacy Shave Evolution Brush.  I put it on my shave cream can, as soon as I received it.  It gets the cream all up and where it needs to be.  It takes shaving to a different level.  It’s the ultimate shaving tool.  I use it for my legs every time I shave.

The Legacy Shave Evolution Brush will bring you close shaves for a long time.  It makes shaving so much smoother.  The shaving cream really gets close to your skin, and there’s no mess all over your hands.  I find this amazing.  I have always hated shaving, but this makes the whole process so much more worth while.

The LEGACY SHAVE EVOLUTION BRUSH offers “The Ultimate Shaving Experience” by stimulating and lifting the hair follicles allowing the users an enhanced experience with the cleanest, closest shave possible. It also reduces the amount of shaving cream or gel used, saving the users money. Most important, it makes shaving fun again. It is the first universal brush attachment for both foam and gel shaving cream cans. It gives a more elegant shaving experience: hands free of foam or gel.

There are a lot of different colors you can order Legacy Shave Evolution Brush in, including Camo.  We love the Camo one.  And, even though I did receive one for review, I ended up buying 2 more.  There are 3 people that shave, in our home, and once I tried the Legacy Shave Evolution Brush, I needed to make sure we all had this comfort.

Your Dishes deserve Dish Fish

Posted on August 16, 2017 in 2017 Back To School Gift Guide kids Reviews women

Dish Fish is amazing.  I love the technology.  The sponge stays cleaner longer, and I don’t have to worry about built up bacteria.

From heavy duty tasks like pots & pans to delicate surfaces like glass & stove tops, there is a DishFish for you.

The Powercell Technology in the Dish Fish Scrubber is everlasting.  But, my favorite part is how it stands up, so it can dry more properly.  You can clean cutlery, thanks to the gills, without having to worry about cutting yourself.  I love how my spouse cleaned the grill with it, brought it in, rinsed it, and Dish Fish was as good as new.  You couldn’t even tell he cleaned a greasy surface.

My Dish Fish Scrubber is going on 3 weeks old, and still looks like it was purchased yesterday.

Then, there’s the Dish Fish Dual.  It’s also amazing.  Dual sided scrubber & sponge for the toughest messes.  With the shape of the Dish Fish, you can put his front end in first, and get into deep spots.  Making it so every inch of your dishes, and pots, are clean.  The Dish Fish Dual is fabulous at cleaning up wet messes.  It soaks up into the sponge, and stays there, until you ring it out.

If you have a child in College, I suggest getting the Dish Fish for them.  They will be able to keep their products clean.  It’s a great little tool to have around.

The Dish Fish also fits perfectly in any hand.  So, this is great for any size person.  My 6 year old loves using it as well.  When I let him do dishes.

Melitta for On The Go Moms/Dads

Posted on August 16, 2017 in 2017 Back To School Gift Guide Reviews women

I love Melitta!  It’s the best for getting coffee, and for their coffee makers.  I recently got to try the 1 cup Pour Over Coffee Brew Cone & Travel Mug Set.  It’s so great.  It’s so easy to make my coffee, and fast working.  It’s great to have added this product to my cabinet.  It’s easy to get a cup of Joe in the A.M. now.

A fast, inexpensive way to bring out coffee’s true flavor with handcrafted brewing

Uses #2 or #4 size cone filters.

Cone design enables you to see into the cup without lifting to avoid overfill

Travel mug holds 16oz of hot coffee. Its narrow base fits in most car cup holders

Plastic cone is BPA free and top rack dishwasher safe

Travel mug is hand wash only

Now, let’s talk Melitta Coffee.  Their Caramel Macchiato is to die for.  This coffee is so good, that I actually went through an entire bag in 2 days.  I can’t help it.  I love it.  The Caramel Macchiato melted in my mouth.  It has a sweet Vanilla cream taste, along with the caramel.  It’s so good, that I didn’t even share it.  My 20 year old, daughter, would’ve loved it, and I feel so guilty, that I’ll have to order more.  I never knew a coffee to be this delicious, seriously.

The coffee is delicious, and the products are great.  What more can I tell you?  Go now, to Melitta’s site, and check it out.  Link is above and below.  You will love them as much as I do.

John Paul Pet, Your Pet will smell Fabulous

Posted on August 16, 2017 in 2017 Back To School Gift Guide pets Reviews

I love John Paul Pet products.  I recently tried the Lavender Mint line.  My dog smells like a million bucks.  This stuff is so great smelling, and it got her so clean.  We usually take Jade to the Pet Store to get a bath, but when I received this line, I had to try it on her, for myself.  She looks so clean, and smells so good.  Better than the groomer could’ve done.

The Lavender Mint Shampoo reduces skin irritation, while it cleanses, calms, and sooths your pet.

How it works:

Tea Tree leaf oil along with Lavender and Mint extracts, combine to soothe skin irritation allowing hot spots to heal.

The Lavender Mint Detangling Spray made Jade so easy to brush.  She has clumps of hair still coming out, so she needed brushed.  This formula made it where she didn’t yelp, while being groomed, by me.

The cats even loved the spray, and you know, normally cats don’t like being sprayed.  I did get them to purr, then sprayed them.  Leaving them smelling fresh, and clean.  I love the smell of Lavender Mint.  My entire house smells good.

How it works:

Thirteen Conditioning Agents including Oatmeal, Chamomile, Sweet Almond Oil, and Panthenol combine to coat and penetrate strands to release tangles.

John Paul Pet has so many products, and I’m sure there is one right for your pet.  Whether it be a dog, cat, ferret, bird, et cetera.  You will find what you need at the John Paul Pet Online store.  The prices are great, and the products really work.
