Waterproofing

One of the many things that my sister loves to do is taking lots of pictures! She takes picture of nature, her kids, and abstract art. Once I seen her taking pictures near the water I cringed. She had nothing covering the camera and that left the camera vulnerable to water damage. I always wondered why she would take such a big risk and she replied that she couldn’t find a camera case that actually protect her camera as it said it would. When I opened up this waterproof camera bag I knew that this bag would be different. The plastic is clear and thick with vinyl to cover the sides of the case. The lens of the camera case astounded me with the heavy duty feel of plastic and rubber grips. The base of the camera case has thick rubber for the camera to rest comfortable on. The locks of the camera case are the strangest thing I have ever seen. It is heavy duty with three tear drop shaped locks that have an ON and OFF positions. I looked at the instructions and decided to try out the bag before I gave it to her. Inside the box is a flexible rubber ring that wraps around the camera lens that will protect the lens while inside the waterproof case. Switching the locks to the ON position will do two things at the same time simultaneously, it will make the locks stick upwards in the air and it will also allow the case to be opened for the camera to be placed inside. The difference between this camera case and others that I have seen is that they want the most possible air inside around the camera before you lock it up. Closing the lock bars and turning the locks back into the OFF position with the camera inside I was finally ready to try out the waterproof claim. I submerged the case into a sink full of water and looked for bubbles to pop up in the water because that would mean that the case wasn’t truly waterproof. There were no bubbles what so ever! I took the case back out and removed the small stuffed toy to inspect it for dampness and again there was no water on it. I know that my sister will be truly be happy to get this waterproof case!

When I talked to my grandmother about how she was storing her old quilts I knew that she needed these vacuum bags. She told me that she would put them in plastic bags, garment bags, or in cardboard boxes because she couldn’t find something that would protect them. So one day I went over to her house and she had all of her quilts piled up on the couch. There were even some baby blankets that she had from when her children were growing up as well as her grandchildren. Some of the blankets were starting to get musty smelling and changing color from time. I pulled out the Jumbo bag and we placed as many quilts and blankets in there as possible. Next, we would fill up the XL bags with the smaller blankets. All in all, it took 6 vacuum bag (2 Jumbo, 4 XL) to hold all of the memories. One by one we used the vacuum hose to take all of the air out. The bags began to shrivel, crinkle, and flatten. While she held the nozzle I would pull at the edges to flatten out the bag to make it as flat as they could be. 6 bags were taken back into her room and were placed in her closet (where they would be placed upright and out of the way) What once was a messy room from all of the blankets and quilts, were now clean and organized. Now all of those memories can be preserved and never see a moth or any other destructive force. I received this product for free or discounted and in return I offer my unbiased opinion.

Long neck

Jewelry, bling, or accessories are what my teenager niece loves. She loves to wear a different piece of jewelry each week to show off her friends. This giraffe necklace is exactly what she wants. She marveled at the giraffe’s size, color, and details. Beautiful cubic zirconia gems fill in the spaces of the giraffe while purple, cream, and black add the rest of the charm. The giraffe pendant is light weight and is beautiful in every detail. The back of the pendant is hollowed out to allow the pendant to be of less weight. The mounted bracket is wide enough for the chain clasp to pass through without hanging up. The chain is flexible round chain that is the perfect length and probably won’t need any extensions. The clasp on the chain is easy to open and close by the lever. Looks great with any shirt or sweater! I received this item for free or discounted and in return I offer my unbiased opinion.

Ringing

Many stylish and older jewelry are coming and staying in style. Jewelry that I grew up with are now the frills that my niece loves. This adjustable ring is so basic and yet it is not. The thinnest ring has a slight point like someone pulled in the center of a ring and kept it that way. It has 2 small hoops attached to allow a simple chain to be connected. The second ring that is at the end of the chain has the same inward point that the other ring does but as an added bonus there is an identical ring that has cubic zirconia chips in it. They both are fused together to form a double ringed beauty. When the double ring is placed on your finger you can adjust the size to smaller or larger depending upon your finger size. The second ring is adjustable too and fit at the top of your finger by the nail. Together these rings with chains create a beautiful and clever piece of jewelry. My niece loves that she can adjust the rings to fit any finger without having to struggle. I love it because the silver is shiny, the rings are perfectly paired, and that she can wear them without her finger turning green!

I love this hair pin! When I received the box with the pin, I was very surprised to see that it was in a gift box, making it feels all the more special. When I opened up the box I was amazed by the sheer beauty that even the picture didn’t do it justice. The gold coating was bright and shiny, the stones were perfectly shaped and gleaming, and the design was impeccable! The hair pins have a beautiful design like the oriental hair pins I remembered seeing in the movies. The metal is bent and twisted to resemble flowers, scrolls, and the bar to hold your hair in place. The stones are placed in the flower design as petals and the sequence is in the middle as the center. Off the side of the hair pin are 2 short chains that hold another stone and sequence in place allowing them to dangle. I love the color that the red stone has with the red sequence creating a pairing that catches your eye. The hair pin has elegance, simplicity, and dazzling abilities without being “too much” or gaudy. One thing that really amazed me is that the seller sent me a site on the internet that gives a tutorial as well as several hair styles that this hair pin will work with.  I love showing off my hair pin and especially love that it can hold my hair or be an accessory to any hair style. As an added bonus inside the hair pin box is a special gift from the company letting you know that they hope you wear this to make “a special you.” I can wear this black elastic band hair a hair piece or as a bracelet!

This year for my niece’s birthday she is asking for a bike. I know that she will want her cellphone with her to play music on and she is not that balanced to hold the handles as well as a phone. This amazing speaker is the answer to my concerns. First off there is a bracket that you can attach onto the bikes frame (no tools included, but is very easy to tighten) and let her listen to her music. The best part about this bracket is that the speaker has a case on it that will allow her to remove the speaker and not the bracket. That way her bike can be ridden with or without the speaker in the bracket. Now there are three ways to enjoy this speaker: Aux mode (using the audio cable included), a TF card (not included most cellphones use this type of card for memory), and Bluetooth. She can put music on a TF card and put it inside the speaker, plug in the audio cord to her portable cd player or computer, or she can sync her phone and the speaker to play the music directly from her phone. No matter where she goes she can enjoy the music. Because the speaker is so versatile the company has made the speaker’s frame heavy duty. There is a thick rubber case that surrounds the speaker, but is cut to allow the music flow through without obstruction. The speaker is charged by a universal USB cord that (thankfully) uses the same cord that her phone uses so that she does not have to carry all those cords. The speaker is very easy to sync to a phone (I paired it with my phone to test) and it was simple. I know that she will also enjoy that she can use this speaker as a Bluetooth for her phone calls as well. I love that she can reach down to answer a call instead of possibly falling off her bike and causing harm. Included in the box is a carabiner clip that she can hook onto her clothes or backpack and not worry about it slipping off of the clip. The sounds that this speaker emits is clear, crisp, and even has the right amount of bass for her rhythmic music.

I love the many colorful pens options that this pack has. The colors are vibrant and bright! I love the grip that each pen has that makes holding the pen easier and gentler on my finger. The pen caps are a bit harder to take off then most pens, but I know that it means they won’t accidently fall off and dry out. My niece who loves to color and draw tried out these pens. She loved how smoothly they slid across the paper and never left uncovered lines. The ink has a great amount of release and doesn’t blot or spill out causing mistakes accidently. These pens are so amazing on their own, yet the company sent a refill set as well for double the enjoyment. I love that the case has individual places for each pen keeping them from falling over. The clasp on the case is easy to open and close. I love to keep some pens around for when my nieces’ friends come over. They love to draw on their hands and with these pens I am not afraid of ink poisoning. At least with these pens I know that they are washable on skin as well as cloth.

Bring it

Carrying around all your toiletries items for a trip can make a big mess inside of your suitcase. Having your soaps, cologne, razors, deodorant, and other items all in one bag can keep your things safe. This canvas bag is perfect for traveling. The canvas is thick and so is the leather pieces sewn into the canvas. I love the heavy duty zippers that creates the main pouch as well as the front pouch. Inside of the bag there is plenty of space for storage. There is even a smaller zippered pouch for smaller items to be stored. The base of the bag is thick and can protect some of the force if it is ever dropped. This bag can be used many times and still keep the rugged charm. My father loves it because it can hold all of his things and not take over his suitcase. He loves that it has the manly charm and none of the “female foolishness”!

Having to go on many trips my sister is always complaining that her stuff gets scattered around in her suitcase and is ruining her clothes. She has tried many different kinds of bags and they never can hold up after a few trips. The zippers would always come off track, the material would unravel at the seams, or if the bag was stained there would be no way to wash them. So when I gave her this bag to try out, she was skeptical again. She filled up her bags and put her other items in this bag and went on her trip. She called me and told me that this bag had survived the trip there. She said that it stayed closed and didn’t spill the contents. She loved the heavy duty feel of the material. She said the zipper never snagged on her stuff inside the bag (she said the bag was full) and that using the leather zipper handle took the search for the zipper away. There is a small pocket on the inside of the bag that allowed her to put her hair pieces separately away from the rest of the items. She has taken several trips since receiving this bag and time after time the bag has held true. She said that when her makeup powder spilled inside of the bag she was amazed that she could put the bag in the washer and that it still held it durable shape.
