Tricks for your iPhone/iPad can be done by you!

Posted on December 14, 2018 in 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

I love the book 100+ iPhone/iPad Tricks You Can Do Right Now!  It has taught me so much about my iOS that I didn’t know existed.  I love that there’s so many neat things, that are just as cool, as the next.  Liz M Weiman got this book completely right!

With this fun, easy guide you can perform each of these 100+ tricks on your iPhone and iPad to explore the big changes that occurred after recent updates, including the iOS 12 update! Apps such as Camera, Photos, iMessage, Stocks, Siri, and many more received a major makeover with new features that are important to know about. Using this guide, you can get the immediacy of a hands-on experience as you perform each of the 100+ tricks (each accompanied by detailed instructions), so you can discover how to use your iPhone/iPad to the fullest!

I’ve read through most of the book, and skimmed through the rest.  I’ve learned some very valuable information.  I’ve got an iPhone 6Plus, and this book is perfect for that model.  The iOS12 is easy to learn with this remarkable book.

My mom will love this book, so I’m ordering her a copy, as well.  She isn’t very tech savvy, so this book will be a wonderful help to her.

Just in Time for Christmas, Blast!

Posted on December 11, 2018 in 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

I love our Blast system.  It’s super cool, and my 7 year old adores it too.  It brings back memories of when I was young, playing Atari.  Now I can have those memories with my son.  He loves Pac-Man, and DigDug.  I remember DigDug!  I used to play it in the bowling alley, while my parents played on a league.  Now, as I said, my 7 year old just loves this!

Along with Pac-Man, and DigDug, comes 4 more games, including:  Galaxian, Mappy, Skykid, and Galaca.  This is going to be cool for the winter.  My son has actually picked this over his big name game system.  I love that he loves playing these games.  And, my mother in law, she wants the one with Space Invaders on it.  So, guess what I’ll be ordering next.

There’s even one with Pit Fall, that was my favorite on our Intelevision System.  I used to play it for hours, and now I can again.  Along with several other favorites.  I will own all of the Blast Games.  I’ll have one hooked up to each television, in my home.  How can you not consider these some great memories?

The graphics are cool, and the hook up is simple.  What are you waiting for, get those memories back!

Thirty-One has Top Quality Bags, and More

Posted on December 11, 2018 in 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

I love Thirty-One!  Their bags, for different seasons, are really super.  Everything I need to fit in the Utility Totes, fits.  I love the Snowy Slopes bag, especially with our M, for Means, embroidered on it.  It’s just a beautiful bag, and will make carrying gifts to my parents house, for Christmas, such joy.  All in one place, and easy to hand out.  I love the insert, to make sure the bag doesn’t collapse.  There’s even a wonderful lid.  You couldn’t ask for more.

There are so many awesome Totes to choose from, including the Crosshatch – All-In Organizer.  I love the Camo one too.  I think it would be great for Hunting Season!  Everything in one place, and all ready to go in my truck.  I’ll be using the All-In Organizer for late Archery this year.  It’ll even fit in my tree stand, with me.

Thirty-One is a great brand, that has a great reputation.  I love all of their products, and they even have wonderful purses, of all sizes.  If you haven’t heard of Thirty-One, you are truly missing out.  If you have heard of Thirty-One, and have yet to buy a bag, do so soon, in time for Christmas.  And, if you have bought a bag, tell me in the comments how you feel about it.  I love hearing feedback, and so do they.

Exec Socks will make you feel like an Executive, no matter what position you hold

Posted on December 11, 2018 in 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

I love Exec Socks, and I love the subscription box.  This is great.  Wonderful, new socks delivered, snail mail, every month.  I can wear them with my dress shoes, boots, or tennis shoes.  And, the comfort that they hold, is grand.

Exec Socks are my new go to brand.  And, I’ve been asked where to get these exact socks.  I knew I loved them, but for someone to walk up to me in Target, and say, “Did you get those here?” was something else.  I did give them my business card, and told them that the review would be up today!  I love my job(s).

The Subscription box is only $10 a month, or $17 for 2 pairs, and you will get fresh socks delivered to you, in a timely manner.  I couldn’t believe how fast mine got here.

This is a wonderful gift, for the College Student(s) in your life.  They are always in need of some fresh socks.  I got them for my 21 year old daughter, who loves to wear designer socks.  She loves them, and wears them to College every time they get put in the wash.

We’ve got your feet covered. Whether you just need a few pairs of socks or want to get socks monthly.

Become part of the elite sock club.

Gaming Headphones for Christmas

Posted on December 10, 2018 in 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

Did you get someone a Gaming System this year?  Then you definitely need the Audio-Technica Gaming Headphones.  These headphones are crystal clear, and so easy to speak into.  I love the sound quality, and the way my friends say they can hear me clearly, as well.

I’m going to have to get a second pair, for my son.  He will love the sound quality, as the cheap headphones we normally buy do not have this high quality sound.  I can’t believe how clear they truly are, and worth every penny.

You can see that there is a sound control switch, to make sure you have the headphones at the right level, for your comfort.  There’s a plug, to plug into your controller.  And the all important, microphone!  These are the perfect gift for any gamer in your life.  I had to have a pair, and I’m an avid gamer.

My son will be all ready for Christmas, once I order his pair.  I already got him all the essentials for the system (controllers, hard drive, and controller charger), just need to order these high-tech gaming headphones, so he’ll have the clarity of sound, that I have.

Features include:

  • Large-diameter 44 mm drivers are specially tuned to provide lively, in-the-game sound
  • High max input: 1,300mW
  • State-of-the-art, flexible boom microphone, with mute and volume control, provides crystal-clear in-game voice communication
  • Detachable smartphone cable with inline mic and controls allows the headset to function as a great pair of on-the-go headphones
  • Strong, lightweight construction with ultra-comfortable headband and earpads enable extended gaming sessions
  • Three detachable cables: 1.2 m boom mic cable, 1.2 m smartphone cable and 2.0 m extension cable

These really are the coolest!

ZKS Designs has Fabulous Jewelry for the Love of Your Life

Posted on December 7, 2018 in 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

ZKS Designs has become my favorite jewelry place to shop at.  I love that the stones look so real.  The 3 cttw Sterling Silver Round Pendant & Earring Set was a wonderful surprise.  It even came with an adorable little pouch to store the jewelry in.

Their jewelry is so exquisite, and priceless, that any girl would love it.  I mean, their rings, pendants, earrings, etc. are all simply gorgeous.  I’m eyeing up a ring, that I think my husband will be getting  for Christmas.

These pieces are not only perfect for the woman in your life, but the little ladies, as well.  This will show just how mature they are, when they have their own cttw, and you can make sure they don’t get lost.

The prices are great, and it’s not too late to order for Christmas.

The set I’m talking about, is linked at top & bottom, and here’s the Details of the pieces:

DETAILS

Sterling Silver 925 Round Pendant and Earring Set Made with Swarovski Zirconia (3.00 cttw)

It comes perfectly wrapped, where nothing is tangled, and kinked.  It’s a beautiful few pieces.  You really have to see these pieces.  And, again, the rings are extravagant too.  I love the .40 cttw Sterling Silver Band Ring.  It’s my favorite piece, and I just know that Santa will get it for me.

These pieces are beautiful, and the $29.99 set, that I told you about above, is 90% off of the retail price of $309.99.

5-Ingredient Instant Pot Cookbook is wonderful

Posted on December 6, 2018 in 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

I recently received the 5-Ingredient Instant Pot Cookbook, which works out perfect, since my significant other bought me an instant pot for my birthday.  I’ve been trying out these recipes, and they are perfect every time.  There are 150 Easy, Quick & Delicious recipes including in the book.

My family loves when I cook out of the book, because the meals are moist, delicious, and take no time to make.  Even Sarah, my 21 year old, has cooked out of the book, and I don’t normally let her touch my kitchen accessories, but I want her to get used to the Instant Pot, since she’ll be getting one soon.

There’s everything in the 5-Ingredient Instant Pot Cookbook.  From Homemade Yogurt, to Rice Pudding.  If you can dream it up, chances are, it’s in there.

Robert Rose Publishing always has the best books.  I’ve been ordering books from them, for a while, and every book, I’ve used, and loved.  This one is no exception, truly love, love, love it!

The Instant Pot® is unquestionably the most popular and bestselling kitchen appliance of the last year, with many models performing the functions of a pressure cooker, a slow cooker, a rice cooker, a steamer, a sauté pan, a yogurt maker and a warmer. 5-Ingredient Instant Pot® Recipes is a perfect companion for the Instant Pot® and a follow-up to Marilyn Haugen’s previous bestseller, 175 Best Instant Pot® Recipes, which has over 20,000 copies in print.

Eat Smart Precision Tracker Scale

Posted on December 6, 2018 in 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

I love my new Eat Smart Precision Tracker Digital Bathroom Scale.  It is perfect for my household, who is obsessed with weight.  We each weigh ourselves once a week, and this scale is perfect.  I love that I’ve lost 3 pounds since weighing myself with it.

Eat Smart has a lot of wonderful products.  Scales are my favorite though.  I get a new one every Christmas, even though there’s a two year warranty.  And, I always get Eat Smart.

Their scales have weight tracking, for up to 2 users.  We have 3 of us, but I keep my weight in a journal, the other two keep theirs tracked on the scale.  These scales are so beautiful, and worth the money.  Not expensive either.

Features include:

  • 12.4″ x 12.4″ durable tempered glass platform with metal accents
  • Easy to read quick response 3.0″ x 1.9″ blue backlit display
  • Weight tracking, instant-on/off, auto zero technology and indications for low battery and overload to preserve battery life
  • High capacity of 440 lbs in 0.2 lb increments (units of measurement available in lb/kg)
  • 3 AAA batteries and a 2 year limited warranty

I always hand my last one down to someone else, who is trying to track their weight.  My mom will get my current one, and my mother in law got my last one.  They love the scales too.  Digital is so easy to read, not like when they used to have that dial on them.  And the capacity is 440, which makes it nice for everyone in the family.

You, too, will love Eat Smart, if you don’t already.

Handcrafted Lip Balms A Collection of All-Natural Recipes

Posted on December 6, 2018 in 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

My 21 year old, daughter, loves her DIY kit.  The Handcrafted Lip Balms were perfect for her to make this time of year.  She can give them out for Christmas gifts, and they are hand made, and from the heart.  She loved receiving this kit, and opening it, and making it.  She says it was easy to do, and so much fun.

The kit included everything she needed to make five round lip balms.  They are super fashionable, and made of beeswax.  I love the one she gave me, it’s in my purse.  And, it’s almost like a story book, for the packaging.  It’s really neat.

The price is an excellent value, and you’d pay more to buy 5 lip balms, than putting yourself out there, to make them.

She actually handed these out early, to the family, and everyone loves them.  My mom said she loves the scent, and the way it makes her lips feel when she puts it on.  My sister said “Wow Sarah, I didn’t know you were this talented, thanks!”

DIY natural beauty has never been easier, or more fun! Handcrafted Lip Balms includes the pods, beeswax, and mold to make your own all-natural lip balms, with instructions to make 12 different types, each with its own flavor and benefits. From peppermint to hazelnut, you will have a perfect lip balm for every occasion.
