EatSmart 550 Capacity Scale Review

Posted on December 30, 2017 in Reviews

We love the 550 Capacity Scale, in our home.  We can keep an eye on our weight, and have plenty of room to move.  The scale is completely accurate, because it’s reading exactly what my Doctor’s Scale read last week.   The extra wide scale is perfect for anyone, small or big.  I love this scale, and often wonder where it’s been for the last 40+ years.

I love everything about the EatSmart brand.  Their products are top grade, and I will continue to do business with them.

Some great features of the Extra Wide, Precision, 550 capacity scale includes the following:

  • 550 lb / 250 kg capacity – HIGHEST IN THE CONSUMER MARKET
  • Measurement Modes: Pounds / Kilos 
  • Graduation Increments of 0.2 lb / 0.1kg
  • Large 4.2″ LCD display w/ blue backlight – easy to read from any distance or angle
  • Beep feature – When weight locks in, scale will beep allowing user to step off and have an easy view of the readout.
  • Auto Calibrated, 4 High Precision Sensors – Consistent and accurate measurements.
  • EatSmart “Step-On” Technology – Get instant readings!
  • Includes 3 x AAA batteries with your purchase
  • 100% satisfaction guarantee and two-year warranty

 

We truly love this scale.  It’s on a flat, hardwood surface, which gives me my most accurate weight.  And, it’s in my office, so I can start the new year with a diet.  I always say I’m going to diet, but I never do.  Now, with the scale in plain sight, I have no excuse.

Stay up to date on how you can win one of these scales.  It’ll be posted soon.

Mystery Tackle Box was a hit at our home

Posted on December 28, 2017 in Reviews

Mystery Tackle Box is a great subscription box, that my husband, and son, both love.  My 6 year old loves going fishing with his daddy, so when the Mystery Tackle Box came in the mail, they fought over who got to open it.  The Mystery Tackle Box had some great fishing gear in it, that they will use this Spring, to go fishing.  I think the 6 year old was more excited than the 40 something year old, and he was pretty excited too.  Now we can get something (Mystery Tackle) every month.

You can subscribe to Mystery Tackle Box for as little at $14.95 a month.  Or, you can get a Pro or Premium box, for just a little more.  Check out the plans here.  You will love it as much as the males in my life did.  It would even be great for that female fisher.  I don’t fish, or I would love it too.  It is a great gift for anyone who fishes, and you can even give it, as a gift.

Mystery Tackle Box is the original monthly lure subscription service. We have featured over a hundred different brands in our boxes and have introduced tens of thousands of anglers to new products they have come to love. We ship out over 2 million baits a year and we continue to grow as our customers love getting their boxes every month. In fact, we’re often told that it feels like Christmas once a month!

So start changing the way you discover new lures and learn new fishing techniques and subscribe to Mystery Tackle Box today!

EatSmart Precision Baby & Pet Scale is so Helpful

Posted on December 26, 2017 in pets Reviews

My mother in law just got a puppy, and we had no idea how much she weighed.  So when taken to the vet, for shots, they told us she was 2.3 pounds.  The next trip, she was 4 lbs, and so on.  Now we can keep track of her weight on our own.  She’s not going to get real big, because she’s a Shih Tzu.  But, my mother in law is so excited to get this scale, and weigh her on a weekly basis.

EatSmart has a great line of products, including the Baby & Pet Scale.  This scale is the perfect size, to just put back in my in law’s bathroom, behind the door, and leave there.  We can weigh Belle when we go down the hall.  This is an extra bathroom, so it won’t be in the way.  It’ll be out of the way, but everyone will know it’s there.  If along the way, a baby comes to visit, we can check their weight too, if the parents want to.  But we got this scale specifically for Belle.

Belle now weighs 6 pounds, that’s a big difference since the 2.3 pounds she weighed, when my mother in law got her.  Belle just laid there, and let us weigh her.  She’s such a baby!  We are glad we get to spend the Holidays with her.

About the product

  •  This baby scale doubles as a pet scale to provide accurate weight readings up to 44 pounds/20 kilograms in 0.5 ounce increments
  • Features an easy to clean, large scoop platform for your little ones added comfort and security
  • Reference your child’s previous weigh-in with Memory Recall, then save current weight with the Memory button to continually track progress
  • The Tare function deducts the weight of a toy, diaper, or blanket for more accurate readings
  • Includes 2 AAA batteries and a 2-year warranty

You will love having this addition to your home.  Especially if you have pets, or a baby.  It’s so functional!

Dog Star Contest/Giveaway

Posted on December 23, 2017 in 2017 Holiday Gift Guide Giveaways sweepstakes

In honor of the New Year dog lovers across the United States, best-selling author Jeff Lazarus of Dogtology is hosting a casting call for all dog and cat lovers to have a chance for their furry friend to be featured on nationally syndicated TV, Pet Pals TV, which can be seen in more than 6 million homes in the U.S.

Three pet parents will get to have their furry friend featured on an episode of Pet Pals TV, a nationally-syndicated television program to highlight how our furry friends make our lives a little extra special. All submissions will be shared on the Social Media Pages of Pet Pals TV and Dogtology and must be photos of the pets only.

To enter please submit a photo and/or video and tell us why your dog is the head of the household by visiting the website: http://www.dogtology.com/

Please note that the more outlandish and quirky the better!) Your pet could have the chance to be make a TV appearance and featured on Pet Pals TV and/or a Social Media Star having their photo shared on the following social media pages: https://www.facebook.com/Dogtology/ and https://www.facebook.com/PetPalsTV.

Chew on this. As humans, we have a deep need to believe . . . a need to relate to something greater and more ideal than ourselves. Perhaps that’s why so many millions believe in Dog. Man’s devotion to Dog has come to rival the great -isms and -ologies of the world. This thing has gone way beyond a hobby. We may not literally worship dogs, but we come pawfully
close. This rabid reverence for Rover has a name: Dogtology.

Dogtology is for the dog lover who has bailed on a date because they didn’t want Twinkles to be left home alone. It is for the human whose dog owns a more festive holiday wardrobe than they do, whose pups dine on free-range bison burgers while they live off ramen, or whose smartphones have more photos of their dog than of the humans in their family. In this sacred dogtrine, the case is made that Dogtology has become a bone-a-fide belief system on par with the world’s great philosophies and religions.

It’s the first holiday season since the gates reopened and Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) and Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel) host a celebration for all of Arendelle.

Disney’s THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS – New Trailer

Posted on December 20, 2017 in Disney Movies


About the movie:

All Clara (Mackenzie Foy) wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift from her late mother. A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer’s (Morgan Freeman) annual holiday party, leads her to the coveted key—which promptly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world. It’s there that Clara encounters a soldier named Phillip (Jayden Fowora-Knight), a gang of mice and the regents who preside over three Realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers and Land of Sweets. Clara and Phillip must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren), to retrieve Clara’s key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world. Starring Keira Knightley as the Sugar Plum Fairy and featuring a special performance by Misty Copeland, Disney’s new holiday feature film “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” is directed by Lasse Hallström and inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale. In theaters on Nov. 2, 2018. 

And here are 2 delicious Nutcracker themed recipes created in honor of the new trailer:
