Double Camping Hammock Review

We have always wanted to have a hammock and absolutely LOVE this one from Live Infinitely. It's actually a Double Camping Hammock so it's lightweight and perfect to take with you anywhere. We have only had a chance to use it in our backyard so far. We have had some awesome fall weather and got to enjoy it for a couple days before the weather turned not so nice.

The hammock itself comes nicely folded up in a little bag and it's actually attached to the hammock so you won't lose it. We found it's very easy to fold right back up and store it back in the bag. The small black bag contains the two tree straps. They are stretch resistant Poly-Filament Webbed tree straps with stainless steel lashing rings. They are super strong and easy to attach and detach from trees. The hammock also has stainless steel carabiners and nautical grade nylon rope cinch points to make for quick set up. Our boys were even able to do it themselves.

The hammock itself is made from the highest quality weather resistant 210T nylon with interlocked triple stitched seams. It is guaranteed to hold 450 lbs. It measures 9' 10" long by 6' 6" wide. Two adults can easily fit in it. It only weighs 18 oz. It is super comfy to sit or lay in. Our boys even had our dog in with them for a bit. We can't wait until next summer when we can put this out again and enjoy it. It will get a lot of use in our backyard and taken along for camping trips.

You can find this Double Camping Hammock on Amazon. It also comes in a grey/blue combo. It can be machine washed.

KUKPO Stainless Steel Potato Masher Review

This Potato Masher from KUKPO has made my job of mashing potatoes so much easier. The broad mashing plate is made from stainless steel. The wide horizontal handle is solid rubber and makes it easy to grip while mashing. The combination of the two really makes a difference from the old masher I have. The wider plate allows me to mash more potatoes at a time and also helps to not let any slip through and leave lumps. My kids don't like lumpy potatoes. :)  This masher is easy to clean and can be put in the dishwasher.

You can find this KUKPO Potato Masher on Amazon. Of course you can use it for any other food that you need to mash.

Forever Flex Exercise Ball from Live Infinitely Review

This Exercise Ball from Live Infinitely is perfect for working your core. You can use it for Pilates, Yoga, or in place of a chair to really work your core. It comes in a variety of sizes including 55cm,65cm,75cm, and 85cm so you can pick based on your height. It comes in gray or purple. It is anti-burst tested.

I've used my exercise ball while sitting instead of a chair. It helps work my core and gives me better posture. I've also used it for various exercises. This one feels very durable and well made. It comes with a hand pump which made it quick and easy to blow up. It also comes with an extra air plug and a valve remover tool.

You can find this Forever Flex Exercise Ball on Amazon.

RollinPets Nail Pet Clippers Review

This RollinPets Nail Pet Clipper comes with a free massage brush and bag to store them in. The clippers are made from stainless steel construction and have a nail guard to prevent cutting the nails too short. It has rubber coated handles which make holding onto them easy and comfortable. 

These clippers have worked great for our dog. We were tired of paying to bring her in for nail trims. We had tried other nail clippers in the past that we bought from the store and they just did not work. We are very happy with these. Our dog also likes having her fur brushed with the massage brush that came along with the clippers.

You can find the RollinPets Nail Pet Clippers on Amazon.

Smead Redrope TUFF File Pockets & 3-in-1 SuperTab Section Folder Review

The Smead 73380 Redrope TUFF Pocket File Pockets from Shoplet are pretty much indestructible. They can hold large, heavy amounts of papers, files, or whatever you need it for. The 6 1/2" high sides and bottoms are lined with tear resistant Tyvek. The extra wide pockets allow room for normal sized top tab file folders.

I'm using mine for some homeschool paperwork & catalogs.

The Smead 3-in-1 SuperTab Section Folder comes in a variety of colors. This folder allows you to keep multiple papers or documents in it while keeping them separate for easy access. The slots are slightly different sizes which let you see them easily. It has a Lockit flap which folds over to keep your documents secure so they won't fall out. 

I have the blue one and am using it for bills. I keep the ones that are ready to go out in one side and others as they come in, in another pocket. I like how easy it is to keep them separate yet together. 

You can find both of these items along with other Office supplies at Shoplet.  They also offer Cleaning suppliesMedical supplies, and other Smead products. Shoplet is the #1 e-retailer of business and offices supplies. You can find almost anything you might need on their site.

Tools4Wisdom Planner - Purse Edition Review

This Tools4Wisdom Planner is the purse size edition (5.5 x 8.5).  It runs from October 2015 to September 2016. It is made of the same high quality material as the full size planner I have from this same company.

It has space for writing in your monthly priorities and goals.

Each week is spread over 2 pages however it only allows you to schedule from 8 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday. Saturday and Sunday only have 2 small boxes allowing for am and pm. This makes me feel like it's more geared towards someone who works in an office. It does have small areas at the bottom of each day which I guess you could write in evening plans. It also lacks the month at a glance page that I like. Most planners I've used have this and this one does not. I like to be able to take a quick glance at the whole month.

Two pages at the end allow room for contact info.

Overall this is a nice planner. It's well made and fits perfect in a purse. It's just not the right one for me since it's lacking a few things I look for in a planner. Everyone has their own preferences when it comes to planners and maybe this one is for you.

You can find this Tools4Wisdom Planner on Amazon. If this certain style is not what you're looking for I encourage you to look at their other options. I love their full size edition!

Premium Chalkboard Labels Review

These Premium Chalkboard Labels are great for organizing all sorts of things in your house, office, or classroom. They can be used for crafting projects too. They are made of nice quality and come off the sheet. You can use chalk or chalk markers on these labels. They also can be wiped off easily with a damp cloth so you can rewrite on them.

This pack comes with 96 labels that are 3 1/2" x 2" in size. I really like that they have a variety of shapes so you can choose according to what you are attaching them to.

These would be great to attach to some holiday decor items and use for name tag place cards. You could easily just wipe off names then for the next party. I also thought about attaching a few to some colored cardboard or cute paper and leaving some notes around the house or for anyone to leave a nice message for someone. So many many ways to use them.

You can find these Premium Chalkboard Labels on Amazon along with these Liquid Chalk Markers that would work great for the labels.

Aegend Figure 8 Resistance Band Review

The Aegend Figure 8 Resistance Band is a lightweight band that is used for toning and strengthening. It can be easily packed to take with you when you travel. It is made from rubber latex. The handles are soft and comfortable to hold onto.

The band is a bit lighter and smaller than I expected but you can still get a decent workout. I think it's more for a beginner or someone that needs a bit less of an intense workout.

You can find this Aegend Figure 8 Resistance Band on Amazon.

EyeSnug Sleep Mask Pack Review

An EyeSnug Sleep Mask may be just what you need to help you get a good night sleep or daytime nap. This actually comes as a set of two masks, along with 2 sets of earplugs. They each come in a handy little bag to keep them in. You can keep one for home and one for travel or stash one in your guest room for your guests that might benefit from using a sleep mask.

These sleep masks are very comfortable and soft. They have a contoured 3D design which allows for REM for the deepest sleep possible so you can wake up refreshed. They have an adjustable strap and are hand washable.

You can find find the EyeSnug Sleep Mask Pack on Amazon.

Happy Cooking - Book Review

Happy Cooking is the latest cookbook out by Giada De Laurentiis. It is full of recipes that are supposed to keep you on the path of healthy eating and make your time in the kitchen stress free. There are plenty of photos in the book and almost 200 recipes. 

I am not sure what turns me off the most in this book. The format feels too overwhelming for me. I don't know if it's the small print or that the recipes and instructions read more like a book. Everything is just all squished together. I only found just a few recipes that actually caught my eye that I would maybe like to try. Most do not feel budget friendly at least for my family. The title suggests that these recipes are supposed to be made without stressing you out but I found most to be the opposite. I could also do without so many photos of Giada herself. I'm not sure why this book needs so many photos of her cleavage. I don't want to see any of that in a cookbook. I prefer photos of the food I'm making. This cookbook just didn't do it for me. It's just not my style.
