Need A Little More Reach on your Lightning Cable? #ReachCablesIphoneCORD

Reach Cables 10 Ft Iphone Ipad Ipod in BagWe have learned the hard way that you get what you pay for when it comes to charging cables for electronic devices. Tony and I both have android phones, a kindle fire and an iPad mini.  One thing that is really important is the length of the charging cord. A lot of times my device needs to be charged, but I also need to use it. I don’t want to have to sit on the floor next to an outlet just to be able to use my device while it is charging. I also want the charging cord to be sturdy enough to withstand normal wear and tear without the cord starting to break where it plugs into my device.
I was given the opportunity to review the 10 Foot Long Lightning Charging Cord from Reach Cables for free in exchange for review.  This 10 foot lightning charging cable is braided and fits the following devices: iPhone 5,Close up of ends on Reach Cable 10 Lighting Cable iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Retina, iPad mini, iPad mini 2, iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3, iPod nano, iPod touch. This Cable is “Guaranteed to more durable than any other charging cable including Apple Certified Lightning cables”.

Their amazon page doesn’t really explain what to do if it breaks or doesn’t meet your satisfactions, but judging from the Questions and Answers section on the Amazon page, it looks like if you leave a message that the product is defective, they will send you a new one.

I really love the length – 10ft allows me to be able to sit in different spots around the room, while it stays plugged in. The Best iPhone iPad Charging CORD Collage Charging Ipad Mini




We have only been using the cord about a week, so I don’t know what the long-term survival rate of this cord will be, but it definitely feels heavier and more sturdy than other charging cables we have used in the past.   We use the Pepkoo Ipad Mini Case and have no issues using this charging cable while the case is on.

After working with DreamSpa through IP Showers in the past, they asked if I was interested in doing another review, for free for them.  This time I got to review the DreamSpa® 12″ Rainfall Shower Head With Color-Changing LED Temperature.

Like the DreamSpa® All-Chrome Water Temperature Color-Changing LED 5 Function Shower Head, this showerhead has a Built-in water temperature sensor and an LCD display changes color with water temperature:

o DreamSpa® 12" Rainfall Shower Head With Color-Changing LED Temperature Display BLUE: Cool (below 95° F)
o GREEN: Warm (95° F-109° F)
o RED: Hot (109° F-122° F)
o FLASHING RED: Warning (above 122° F)

However, the DreamSpa® 12″ Rainfall Shower Head With Color-Changing LED Temperature also includes a large lighted LED/LCD display screen indicates water temperature.  I personally find 107° F to be the most comfortable. Continue reading

An Update on Oliver, and a Review!

I know it has been very quiet here lately. I’ve now been working nights, Monday through Friday for a year and I’m still struggling to find time to work on my blog.  I previously worked three 12 hour shifts and Thursday, Friday and Saturday, which left me 4 days where I was free to work on my blog.  Now before work I feel like most days I am rushing around running errands and when I get home from work, It is almost midnight and I just want to relax, watch a little tv and go to bed.

I have still been doing reviews, but lately a lot of the brands just want me to post my thoughts on social media, not necessarily my blog, so if you aren’t following me on Facebook, Google+, Twitter and Instagram  – Do so now! Continue reading

#Bartelli Soft Edge Automatic Electric Can Opener #Review (#Ad)

After many years our electric can opener had died. We had a manual one as a backup, but Tony and I both had so much trouble trying to get it to work, that we tried another one.  Tony can get that manual one to work but I can’t, I have to squeeze so hard that it hurts my wrist.  When I saw that Bartelli was looking for reviewers of their Soft Edge Automatic Can Opener, I applied right away.

Thankfully they selected me and provided me with an Amazon code to order the blue version for free.  When it arrived I quickly ran to the store to get some AAA batteries which are not included so I could test it out. Continue reading

Azure Naturals Logo
The Azure Naturals Ocean Minerals line  contains over 90 powerful Oceanic Minerals, micro minerals, vitamins and vital nutrients help repair, rejuvenate and deeply nourish your skin, giving it a healthier, more youthful glow. This wonderful line of products is specially formulated to work together to improve the effectiveness of one another.  I was lucky enough to be chosen to review four of the products in the line for free.

Azure Naturals Products

You should start your day with the ULTIMATE Ocean Mineral Cleanser. This cleanser has High-End Spa Quality Oceanic Minerals and Micro Minerals To Nourish, Azure Naturals CleanserRepair Skin Lesions, Dry Skin, Blemished Skin and Rough & Damaged Skin, MSM Increases Cell Permeability, Vitamin E and Rose Hip Oil help diminish discoloration and Repair Scarring Leaving your Skin With a Clean, Healthy, Youthful Glow.  This cleanser is great because it has age-defying properties, capable of neutralizing acne-causing bacteria, unclogging pores, evening skin tone, reducing redness, fading discoloration and more! Even as I enter my early 30’s my skin still breaks out. I know it is due to stress, but sometimes stress is unavoidable.  I have been using this cleanser (as well as the other products in the line)  for almost three weeks now and it has done a great job controlling breakouts. There were a few days where I started to get a lot of white heads and pimples so I switched to my old  facial cleanser and it wasn’t helping at all.  I went back to this cleanser, twice  a day and by morning all my blemishes were smaller and less visible.Azure Naturals Toner

You follow the cleanser with the ULTIMATE Ocean Mineral Toner.  The secret in the toner is the phytochemicals, polysaccharides and bio-available oceanic minerals and micro minerals working together to activate enzyme promoting skin cell repair & renewal .  They also encourage collagen production to restore firmness & elasticity which  prevent premature aging of skin. Micro minerals help repair, rejuvenate and deeply nourish your skin, Irish Moss and Kelp (Algae) stabilizes minerals that deeply moisturize and brighten your skin. You can spray on your skin, or apply with a cotton ball.   This is the only product in the line that I tried that I wasn’t thrilled with. It seemed too harsh for my face.  It always burned my eyelids and lips so I wiped it off those areas immediately.  When you are using it as a spray, you can’t really control where it goes.  It also irritated other parts of my skin but once I put the moisturizer on, it seemed to calm down, and the redness would go away.  Continue reading
