Balance Living® Inflatable Frog Animal Pool Toy

It's the perfect size for our yard

I gave this 5 out of 5 stars

          I like this Balance Living frog pool. It is perfect for our house. I like that it is big enough for my son (ahem and me) but it is not too big. The bigger they are the harder they are to keep clean. The only way this could be better is if there was a pump with a filter, but it is the right size that I could fill it and dump it every few days. It is 69 inches in diameter, which is between 5.5 and 6 feet. It can hold up to 302 gallons. I have not been able to fill the pool up with water yet, the weather is still cold so I am not sure exactly how deep it is but it has to be 20 inches or more. The pools top ring needs filled with air and once it is inflated it can be filled with water. There are 2 frog hands and a frog face on it, it is adorable and I have never seen a frog pool like this before. As it fills with water the side will need pulled out so it stays in a round shape. I also recommend that it is placed on an even piece of ground. The material is strong and can stand up to kids playing in it and roughhousing. There is a repair kit included with enough material to patch the pool more than once. My son and grandchildren can't wait to swim in it. You will need a pump to fill this up. I used the air pump to an air mattress and inflated it pretty fast. We love it. I received this item at a discounted rate to try in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Peaktop Outdoor Stacked Pots Floor Fountain

It is gorgeous!

I gave this 5 out of 5 stars

          This Peaktop stacked pots floor fountain is gorgeous! I am in love with it. It looks like it is made out of cement or stone but it is not heavy at all. It's made of fiberglass and resin and it looks like real pots. This fountain can stand up to the rain and weather, rain will not hurt it at all. The fountain is 14.96 x 17.72 x 30.32 inches. The fountain comes with 3 parts, the fountain, pump and pump cover. Inside of the fountain is hollow. There is a hose inside the top pot that attaches to the pump. The pump sits in the bottom pot where it runs. The pump has to be submerged in the water or it will get ruined. The easiest thing to do is to fill the pot with water where the opening is in the back of the fountain. After the pump is covered in water you can plug it in and it will start working. Make sure there is plenty of water in it because once it stars pumping, the water level will get lower until the water gets recirculated, also only put water in it, anything else will damage the pump. The water starts by coming out of the top pot, down to the next, then the bottom one and recirculating. It is so beautiful and the sound is very relaxing. I cannot wait to place this in it's permanent spot when the warm weather breaks. It is going to be a main point in my backyard.

ASSEM® 6 Outlet Power Strip Smart Surge Protector

Perfect for workstations or the home theater 

I gave this 5 out of 5 stars

          This ASSEM power strip smart surge protector is nice for all my stuff. It has 6 AC outlet plugs and 6 USB ports. There are 4 USB ports for 5V 1A and 2 USB ports for 5V 2.4A output. It can charge fast. The cord is 5.9 feet long so it can reach pretty far. There is an on/off button and when it is switched on, the button lights up. This is perfect for a computer center or a home theater center. The power strip is under 9 inches long and almost 3.5 inches wide. It will have to sit on the floor because it does not have any mounting holes in the back of it. I wish it did because that makes a work area look more organized in my opinion. Overall I am very happy with it. It is nice to plug my USB cords into 1 place and not use all my wall outlets and bunch of wall adapters. It gives me a lot more plugs so it is good for a room that doesn't have many electrical outlets. It also great for when it is storming. I have lost a computer to a lightening strike before so a surge protector is important. I received this item at a discounted rate to try in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Super Kitchen Premium Food Grade Double Thickness Silicone Pastry Mat

I love the large size

I gave this 5 out of 5 stars

          I have tried other kitchen mats before but there is nothing like this Super Kitchen mat. It is made of food grade silicone. It can be used in the oven and on the counter top. It is big! It measurement 28 inches wide and 20 inches tall. I love the size, it fits my needs better than a regular food mat. It is nice for making desserts because it is non-stick, keeps my counter clean and the mat has measurements all over it. The outer edges have the inches numbered. In the center are circles with inches measured. There is also a table for converting grams to cups, although I will never use it. In another corner there are tips listed on using the mat. This mat also fits in my oven. I can cook a pizza on it and I can set the mat on a pan which will keep the pan clean. Cleaning the mat is fast and easy, a few wipes with a cloth or a dip and wipe in the sink and it is done. I really love the size. It comes with a band to hold the mat rolled up and closed.

MCS Love Wire Photo / Card Holder

It is a decorative way to display photos

I gave this 4 out of 5 stars

           This LOVE wire photo and card holder is a very nice looking wall decoration. It can be hung up in any pattern and it would look great. It can be hung up and left as a wall decoration or it can be used to hang cards and photos. The letters are strong and will not bend or warp. They are made of metal. The design is pretty and they can decorate any room. On the back of each letter is 2 holes for hanging it up. There are no screws or nails included which is a bummer because the holes are a smaller size so you have to find the right size. Mounting tape or double sided tape would work great with these letters. My daughter loves this set. I ended up gifting this set to her, she is excited to hang some photos in it. This would make a nice gift too. I received this item for free to try in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Universal Car Sun Shades Cover for Rear Side Window

It blocks the bright light

I gave these 4 out of 5 stars

          These universal car shade covers are very helpful. They cover the backseat windows. They block the suns harmful rays but they are great so my son can see without squinting. They can be used with the windows up or down, and when the windows are down they keep bugs from flying into the back window. There are 2 shades in a set. They are stretchy to fit over the car window. It was a little tight on my car, and the foam strip that seals the window got pulled out a little bit but I pushed it back and it seemed to be fine. I would like them to be a little looser but they worked good. They are so much better than the pull down shades, I can't stand those things. In my opinion, these are the best option to protect the backseat from bright sunlight. I received this item at a discounted rate to try in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Darwins Beard Catcher

My sink is so much cleaner

I gave this 5 out of 5 stars

          I have been waiting for something like this Darwins Beard Catcher. I love my husband but he drives me crazy when he is trimming and shaving his face. He either trims his face over the bathtub, leaving the hair set in there and not cleaning it up, or he trims over the bathroom sink and gets hair everywhere. He just couldn't seem to do it in a way that was not messy. With the beard catcher he can trim without making a mess and clean up is fast. It has snaps to attach it around the neck. It has 3 different adjustments to fit the neck. At the bottom of the beard catcher are 2 suction cups that get attached to the mirror. It can then catch all the hair and keep the area nice and clean. It comes in a drawstring storage bag. My husband has his hanging on a hook until he uses it again. It is machine washable.

xtf2015 Red and Green Firefly Laser Light Sparkling Star Projector

So simple to set up, looks awesome

I gave this 5 out of 5 stars

          This red and green Firefly Laser light sparkling star projector is awesome. It is a waterproof outdoor laser light that shines on my house. I cannot wait to use this laser light in December. I plugged it in and turned it on in my house to play with it and try it out. My son and granddaughters love this light. They thought it was so cool. It comes with a remote control that powers the light, changes the color to red, green or red and green, adjust the flashing speed and lets you set a timer for 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 hours. The light comes with a stake to install the light securely into the ground. The bracket that holds the light can be tilted up and down to adjust it. The light is many dots and they move around, flash and change shapes. As with any laser, keep it out of a persons eyes. This would make awesome stage lighting or party lighting. I really like this light. It is an easy and fast way to decorate for Christmas.  I received this item at a discounted rate to try in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

HDE Women's Plus Size Vintage Retro Push Up Swimwear

It compliments any figure, great design

I gave this 4 out of 5 stars

          I ordered the black and white bathing suit. I ordered the XXL but it was not true to size, it was a lot smaller. It really makes me sad because this bathing suit is super cute and can make a figure look more shapely. I put it on and the waist fit a little snug but the suit was too short for my body. When I pulled it up it came up to the bottom of my bust. I am very tall, 6 foot so maybe that is why it was too short vertically. I will be giving this to my daughter, she will love it! The bathing suit is 1 piece. The design is great, it is very flattering. It The bust has push up cups that have under wire so the shape is perfect. The material stretches comfortably. The straps are strong and adjustable. It's so cute and comes in 2 different colors. I received this item as a sample for free to try in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
