Hot Yoga Towel (24"X 72") by Pure Yoga Love

Nice and BIG

I gave this 5 out of 5 stars

          Hot Yoga Towel is really nice. It is gray with blue stitching, so it is great for a woman or man to use. It is the same size as a regular yoga mat, 24 x 72 inches. It is a great size for anyone. I am 6 feet tall and it is the perfect size for me. The material is strong and can stand up to being rough with it. It is very absorbent, soft and slip resistant. It is machine washable, that is important to me. I will use my mat in different ways besides exercising. It is easy to roll up so I can take it anywhere. My favorite place to take it is to the beach. It is perfect for laying on. It absorbs the water, dries quickly and keeps the sand off of me. I received this item for free to try in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Millennium Energy Bars Assorted Flavors Including Emergency Guide

They are quite tasty 

I gave this 4 out of 5 stars

          These Millennium Energy Bars are 400 calories each and contain 8 grams of protein. They pack a lot of energy. There are 6 energy bars in different flavors. There is lemon, vanilla, raspberry, cherry, apricot, orange, and coconut. Each bar is sealed in an airtight wrapper so they are very fresh. They perfect for camping, hiking and outdoor activities since they give a great energy boost and the packaging keeps the bar dry, safe and clean. There is an emergency guide included with the energy bars. It give information about starting fires, finding clean water and much more. I opened the lemon bar and took a bite. The first taste was a little drab but another bite and I could taste the lemon really well. The bars are dry and a little hard, but not super hard. For energy bars they taste good. I think protein energy bars usually taste overly sweet and really hard but these are not like that. I am am very happy with them.

Rose Filigree Locket with Lava Stone Beads for Essential Oil Diffuser Necklace

Unique looking and I can take my oils with me

I gave this 4 out of 5 stars

          This Rose Filigree Locket is a very unique piece of jewelry. It comes with lava stone beads to use with essential oils. From end to end the chain is 30 inches long. There is no adjustment to make it shorter or longer. The locket hangs below my heart, so it is pretty long. It closes with a lobster clasp. The chain is really nice except for the link that connects the clasp. That link holds the clasp fine so far but it looks like it could eventually work it's way open and fall off. The locket is very cool. It can open and close and it holds a lava stone bead. There are 2 beads included. They kind of look like charcoal. Put a few drops of a favorite essential on on it and the bead will absorb it and I can smell it all day. It would really be helpful during a cold, and I have heard peppermint can help ease headaches. I really like this necklace. I like how it looks and what it does. I received this item for free to try in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

The Perfect Spice Seasoning, Lemon & Dill - 3 Pack

A seasoning staple to always have on hand

I gave this 4 out of 5 stars

This 3 pack of lemon & dill Perfect Spice Seasoning is nice because there are 3 whole bottles and not a single large bottle. They stay fresh so much longer. A single large bottle eventually gets old and may start to stick together in clumps, then it is useless and a waste of money. I ended up keeping a bottle for myself and I have a bottle for my daughter and oldest son. My daughter loves lemon seasoning so this is a new taste on the usual lemon.  Each bottle is almost 4.5 ounces. The bottles are plastic and have a flip top to open it. When the cap is open the seasoning can be sprinkled on. They arrived wrapped all together, not individually wrapped. This lemon & dill can be used to season anything. It is amazing on chicken and fish. It can be used to make a sauce. It doesn't contain MSG. It makes food taste really good.

Cooperz Petz Premium Omega-3 Fish Oil for Dogs and Cats

I give this to my cat everyday

I gave this 5 out of 5 stars

           This Cooperz Petz Premium Omega-3 Fish Oil for dogs and cats is a good value. This bottle is 16 ounces. When I buy this in a pet store, the bottle is usually 7-9 ounces and is close to the price of this oil, and I don't like the small bottles, they get used up so fast. This fish oil is mercury free and has a lot of DHA and EPA fatty acids. We give this oil to our cat. We put 1/2 a pump on his cat food. He eats hard cat food and the oil does not bother him at all. Our cat has an issue with skin irritation. He is always grooming and licking himself. He does it so much that his fur is very thin. After  about a month of giving him the oil, his fur gets thicker and he has less skin irritation. He looks a lot healthier. If a cat or dog has skin or fur issues I really recommend trying fish oil. it is very effective. I received this item for free to try in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Lenny & Larry's Complete Cookies 5-Flavor Variety

Taste so fresh

I gave this 4 out of 5 stars

          Lenny & Larry's Complete Cookies are made with all natural ingredients and the have a lot of protein. They are vegan cookies and they do not contain eggs or any dairy products. This gift box contains 5 different flavors and there are 2 packs of each flavor. The cookies are individually wrapped and they are very fresh. The flavors include white chocolate macadamia, snicker doodle, chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin and peanut butter. There are a total of 10 cookies in the box. It is a nice variety. My favorite flavor is the white chocolate macadamia and the snicker doodles. I am not a fan of raisin cookies. The cookies are soft, not crunchy. Since they are individually wrapped they are good for lunches or tossing one in my purse for a snack or when I need a boost of energy.

Stilo - Active Fine Tip Stylus Pen

The best stylus I have ever used

I gave this 5 out of 5 stars

          This Stilo active fine tip stylus pen is awesome. It truely is the best stylus I have ever used. It can be used on the iPad, iPhone, Samsung and Windows tablets. It also works on my Lenovo Yoga Pro 2. Usually a stylus is thick and bulky and the rubber tip is kind of big. This tip is thin for more accuracy. It would be great for drawing and artwork. The Stilo uses 1 AAA battery and it is included. There is a simple on and off push button. The sensitivity can be adjusted by twisting the length of the stylus tip. I really like this a lot, in fact this would be my 1 choice for a stylus. The battery lasts a really long time, over 10 hours straight.

iPhone 6s Case, ZONCH™ [Anti-Scratch] [Shock-Absorption] Electroplated & Transparent Soft Flexible Silicone Protective Shell

Simple and comfortable, not bulky

I gave this 4 out of 5 stars

This iPhone 6s ZONCH case Is a flexible and not too soft. It is comfortable to hold and grip. It has a textured design on it and it is a gunmetal color.  It just slips on the phone, very easy to install. I really like simple cases like this, textured and flexible. They make the most comfortable cases because they are not big and bulky. If I were to drop my phone with this on I am confident that it would be OK, unless the screen directly hit something. It fits an iPhone 6 and 6s. I received this item for free to try in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

HDE Bluetooth Speaker Multi Function Wireless LED Light Up

A cute little speaker

I gave this 4 out of 5 speakers

          This HDE Bluetooth speaker is a cute little speaker. I got the blue speaker, it is a pretty baby blue color. The speaker is 5 inches long and just over 2 inches wide. It can play music while paired to a phone and it can receive phone calls. It has a slot for a microSD card and a USB port to play from a the card and a flash drive. The buttons on the top are skip forward and backward, adjust the light and play/pause/ answer the phone. on the back of the speaker is an AUX port, on/off switch, USB port, microSD slot and miniUSB slot.  There is a charging cord and an AUX cord included. The sound is good for a small speaker but if it is turned up really loud it is distorted. The light flashes with the music in a few different modes, it can even be shut off. It also has an FM radio built in. This would be nice for a relaxing bath. I received this item for free to try in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Be Dri Waterproof Storage Dry Box Container with Lanyard

Keeps all my contents dry and clean

I gave this 5 out of 5 stars

          This Be Dri waterproof storage dry box is awesome. Whatever I put inside of it stays dry and safe. It has a lanyard for carrying it. There are 2 clasps that hold the container closed. When I open it I can see a seal that goes all the way around the container so it gets an air tight seal. This would be excellent for keeping matches, a phone or anything that can fit inside. It is useful in so many ways, camping, fishing, hunting, hiking. I know where I will be using this dry box. This summer I will be taking it with me when I go to the beach. I will be storing my phone in it. Not only does this protect my phone from water, it also protects it from sand and dirt. I trust it to hold my important items.

Nulaxy Wireless In-Car Bluetooth FM Transmitter

Great for cars without Bluetooth

I gave this 4 out of 5 stars

          The Nulaxy wireless Bluetooth FM transmitter for the car pretty much works as you think it would. You plug it into your cigarette lighter, pair the Bluetooth with your phone and play music from the phone. The cigarette lighter has a USB port to plug the phone in to charge, which is great if you only have 1 cigarette lighter. When the Bluetooth connects it will tell you, also if it disconnects it will tell you. I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 because occasionally it would just drop the connection, then I would have to reconnect it because it would not do it itself, then restart my music. This transmitter has a 1.44 inch screen that is easy to read. You can put music on a microSD card and put it in the transmitter to play from the card directly. You have to find a radio station with nothing but static and turn your stereo into that station and the music plays thru that station. There was 1 time the static came thru the music a little bit, but it was really not even an issue. I like using this transmitter better than plugging my phone into my stereos AUX because it is wireless, but disconnections are annoying. I can use the buttons on the transmitter to skip ahead or back music tracks instead of having to look at my phone. Of course another huge benefit is I can take phone calls thru it. There is no on/off button, that would be nice but overall I like it. I received this item for free to try in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Xtava Jet Set Travel Flat Iron

Works on my thick wavy hair

I gave this 5 out of 5 stars

          This Xtava flat iron is very attractive, it looks really nice. The plates are are 1 inch wide. There is an on/off switch on the inside the iron. It gets hot pretty fast. I have thick and wavy hair so I had doubts that this 1 inch iron could handle my hair. While it did take longer, it did work. I was pleasantly surprised. If I travel with a flat iron it will be this one. Besides working well it is lightweight, comfortable to use and doesn't take up very much room. When I run my hair thru the plates, it does not pull or rip my hair. There is a piece on the cord where it attaches to the iron, it holds the iron closed for storage. It comes with a heat resistant storage bag and it comes with 4 hair clips for parting hair. I am very happy with it.

TEC.BEAN Personal USB Mini Ozone Anion Air Purifier

It is for small areas

I gave this 4 out of 5 stars

          This personal USB mini ozone air purifier is great for small areas. It would be great in the refrigerator, a closet or in the cupboard. It is a "mini" air purifier so it is for small spaces. It comes with a USB cord but a wall adapter is not included. It can use 4 AA batteries so it can be placed anywhere. The batteries are not included with the air purifier. There is a simple on and off button. I plugged it into my computer to first try it out. After it is turned on I smelled the air purifier and I could really smell the ozone. It reminded me of how the air sometimes smells after a thunderstorm. This is not a fan. It just emits the ozone which is said to make the air smell better. I keep an air purifier in my refrigerator and it helps with food smells.
