Drink coasters+holder+ice ball mold maker!

When John and I were first married, we bought a set of coasters.  These were small silicone ones that came in a holder. In fact we have used them ever since and still own them.  I love the silicone ones because they are easy to toss in the dishwasher when they go to getting over used.

I had the chance to try out another set of silicone coaster, that also came in a holder.  With this set of coasters you also get a ice ball mold, so you can freeze balls of ice.

I love these new coasters even more because they are larger.  A large size coffee mug will fit perfectly on them.  And what I also like about these is that they aren’t just for alcohol. 

The ice balls could make a glass of ice water more fun.  The coasters is perfect for any beverage in your mug or glass.  I think this set from wise palace is really nice and worth the price they are charging on Amazon, $13.95

Bandage or Bondage wallet? That is the question!

If you like different, then you should check out this wallet! 

They call it a bandage wallet.  It is pink and black with tiny little hearts all over it.  up the front is a pink shoe lace like.  To me it reminds me more of a “bondage” wallet – because it looks like a corset.

wallet1

The wallet is from a company called Fineway.  It has a magnetic snap on the front that holds well.  Inside you will find several places to store store cards as well as credit cards.  You will also find a zippered compartment for your change and small items. 

I really like this because it is different. 

Check it out in this you tube video

While it is synthetic leather, I believe it is going to last me a long time.  I like having items that is different and this is sure one of them.  Want one for yourself?  They are available on Amazon
 

pocket knife

I think all men like pocket knives.  At least the ones I have been around all my life.  It must be something they start with wanting at a young age.  My nephew is only 9 and he has already started asking his parents for a knife.  In fact the other day as they were walking through a local flea market, a large knife caught his eye.  He started asking for it, of course he was told a firm NO.  The man selling it said, “Oh come on, all boys need a knife”.  He still didn’t come home with that knife.

knife1

My Step Dad has a knife collection that belonged to his Dad.  My real dad always had one, and John has a few different kinds.  I guess a pocket knife to a man, is like a pair of shoes to a woman.  Of course some women even like pocket knives and men likes shoes, but I am sure you get my point! 

The other day the UPS guy showed up at the door with his daily arm load of boxes.  John normally opens them up and takes things out for me.  He opened up a box that contained the Maxam lock back executive knife.  He immediately claimed it. 

This knife is a nice size.  4” when it is closed up.  It features a stainless steel blade, bolsters and liners.  Has a laminated wood handle with brass pins.  When it is open it is about 6-7”  and it is made really well.  I believe it will last a long time.  The company backs it up with a lifetime guarantee.

Do you know someone that carries a pocket knife or you just want to surprise the Man in your life with one?  I recommend this one!

Rain Dance or Drip Irrigation Kit?

I have posted a lot about water hoses, sprinklers and hose nozzles.  But what if you had a garden or something that needed water, but didn’t have direct access to a water spigot?  Do you leave your precious plants to Mother Nature.  Do you do a rain dance or carry buckets of water? 

In this humidity I can rule out carrying the water.  I doubt the rain dance would work for me much either. 

There is another option.  A option John actually used – and LOVED.

It is a drip irrigation kit

drip1

With this kit you can connect it to the threaded faucet (washing machine tap or even a PVC plastic tube top). 

It has adjustable irrigation drippers.  Twist the adjustable dripper red cap into a sprinkler.

It is simple to install.  You don’t have to have plumbing skills or have to dig. 

John had planted some stuff over the hill where he didn’t have an available water spigot.  He was brain storming about what he could do to fix it.  Then by chance I got the chance to review this irrigation drip kit. 

drip3

He was ecstatic when it came in.  He was telling how he needed that.  I haven’t seen him happier over a review item to date.  He installed it and loved it.  A couple days later he asked me to purchase a 2nd one and I did.  He loved it that much. 

These kits sell for $18.99 on Amazon

Package included:

1x Hose 20m(65.6 feet)- Versatile 1/4″ blank distribution tubing may be used as the main line in a small drip irrigation system or to branch off from 1/2″ tubing to individual watering devices and plants.

2x Faucet Connector Accessories – 1/4″ Tubing Quick Connector.

20x Adjustable Irrigation Drippers – Through the 1/4″ blank distribution tubing pipe evenly distribution.

20x Barbed Fixed Stem – Holds 1/4″ drip tubing securely in place.

 

 

Please note:

1:Try to use the threaded faucet because there is no leakage screw will not fall off. Rubber faucet possible leaks or large pressure off phenomenon.

2: When the hose connecting parts be pressed by hot water , soft spots to connect the accessories will be better.

Just Beat it – With Silicone Balloon Wire Colorful Whisk

We have probably all heard about the abusive chef right?  The one that beat the eggs and whipped the cream? 

I have been that abusive chef more then once.  Except I have been beating the eggs and whipping the cream with my Silicone Balloon wire Colorful whisk.

whisk4

These whisks are easy on the eyes.  What attracted me to them at first was the handles.  They are a bright neon green handle that matched some other kitchen accessories I own.  Then the whisk itself is colorful and silicone.  While the colors doesn’t have anything to do with if they work or not, they are easy to look at and I think that is important to a lot of people.

The main thing we need in a whisk is to be able to blend ingredients smoothly or even to mix air in the mixture. 

These do just that.  I like these because the long handles are easy to hold on to.  It even seems easier to clean after using. 

With these whisks, you get 2 sizes.  A larger one for larger cooking projects and my favorite is the smaller one.  It is perfect for mixing up a hot chocolate or a cup of cream soup. 

These whisks are available on Amazon and well worth the $7.99 they are charging for them.

If you love to cook, then you need these.

Beat the summer heat and winter weight with these Popsicle Molds

Here we are, just a couple days in to summer and the humidity has been smiling at us here in Kentucky.  I think several people can say that it has been pretty warm where they are!

I like to find things to stay cool in the summer.  One of the things I love in the summer is ice cream.  Since I have been trying to beat not only the summer heat – but the winter weight, ice cream isn’t a option.

But popsicles that I make using the Lebice popsicle molds are an option!

popsicle3

These molds are available on Amazon for under $12.00. 

They come with everything you need to make your favorite treats.  They even include a brush to clean the molds once they are empty.  I like these because I can freeze anything from diet drinks, to water or even fat free pudding.  They are easy to fill and I like the fact that they have the sticks and a base to hold them in in my freezer as they freeze.

I have had some molds that actually stuck to what I froze.  This can get so frustrating.  If I want something, I want it now, not after I have to fight with it for 10 minutes. 

While they are easy to fill, Lebice even sticks a funnel in this box.  They have thought of everything.

popsicle2

 

I have been using these for a couple weeks now and I love them.  There is 6 molds, this makes it about 2 dollars a mold that can be used over and over and over.  Can’t buy premade ones or ice cream that cheap.

Other then the ease, my favorite thing about them is being able to control what goes in them. 

This would be a perfect summer time gift for the kids as they start summer break – Or for yourself.

304 Stainless Steel Salt And Pepper Grinder Set

Are you a foodie?  Do you like to cook or do you just like to eat what is cooked?  No matter what your answer is to that question, there is a couple things we need when we are cooking or eating.  That is seasoning!  Yes, the cook normally adds the salt and pepper – but most of us likes to adjust it to our taste.  

When I was in Panama we purchased a really nice set of stainless steel vinegar and oil dispensers.  I don’t know if it was the humidity or what, but our elegant looking dispensers rusted right before our eyes.

I learned that day, that just because something looks good at first, we need to find out just what they are made of to find out if they are going to last or not.

Why am I telling you about this?

It is because out of all the salt and pepper shakers and grinders I have owned throughout my life, and there has been a lot, I have found the most sophisticated, elegant looking quality pepper and grinder set.  This set from, Lausihay and is available on Amazon.

grinder1

Here is more about them in the companies own words:

  • HIGH QUALITY 304 STAINLESS STEEL AND GLASS GRINDER SET. These salt and pepper mills are made with premium stainless steel (304), while most grinders are manufactured with a lower Nickel content (201 Stainless Steel). Which means the Lausihay grinder is better for your health and will last much longer than the common grinder. The grinding mechanism is made of a premium noncorrosive and rust free ceramic, ensuring trouble free service year after year.
  • THIS ADJUSTABLE GRINDER IS EASY TO USE. The Lausihay spice mill has an adjustable grinder that allows you to control the coarseness of the spice. It has a grinding indicator that lets you choose between coarse or fine grind. The wide mouth makes it easy to fill the mill with your spice of choice. Once filled, just crank the cylinder to get ground spice out. The glass window makes it easy for to see the level of the spice remaining inside the container.
  • ATTRACTIVE AND HANDY. Lausihay has created a very stylish set of spice mills that look good anywhere. The combination of stainless steel and glass make it a perfect pairing with silver, crystal or cut glass dinner service. The cylinder turns smoothly and easily. The tall design makes it easy to hold while grinding spices. Why struggle trying to get a good grip on a small grinder when you can create your culinary delights with this beautiful set instead?
  • FREE FANTASTIC WINE STOPPER. As a token of our appreciation, we offer a free gift with this purchase. Included in your Gift Box is a fantastic press-type wine stopper with an air pressure switch. This is also made of stainless steel and is easy to use. We are confident you will love the free gift almost as much as you are going to love your new mill set. Take it home and let it keep your wine fresh for days!
  • GIFT BOX. Our gift box is designed from our hearts, and each piece of the set is resting in a formfitting tray to protect it until it is ready for use. When the box arrives, the quality of the set will be apparent from the start.

This is everything they said and more.  I love the fact that it is made from 304 stainless steel.  I never have to worry about rust.  They are easy to fill.  They are easy to use. 

They come in a nice box which makes them giftable and I just think when a company packages their products like that, it show that they value these said products. 

The only thing about this set that disappointed me?  Is the wine stopper.  Now because of it, I don’t have an excuse to finish the whole bottle of wine.  All jokes aside this 304 stainless steel salt and pepper grinder set is a very nice set.

MLVOC Garden Hose Nozzle Sprayer

 

I have been talking a lot lately of hose and sprayers.  Like the MLVOC Garden Hose I posted about.  I didn’t tell you that on that hose I have a sprayer on it.  It is the MLVOC Nozzle

It fits it perfectly,  is easy to use.  The front trigger switch is really easy on the hands. 

nozz1

While I like the fact that there is 8 different spray patterns when using this nozzle.  That is not what makes it great and unique for me.  The fact that this has a foam store in it that makes it special.  I can run the hose out to wash my car or for any thing else I might need to clean.  It is also perfect to put shampoo in when you are washing your pets outside with the hose.  While I prefer to bathe my pets in a warm tub, there is times they have been out rolling in the fields and need cleaned off before coming inside.  All pet owners will understand that one!

nozz2

This is a really made item with a nice design.  I believe it is going to last for a while and is something that I am glad I own.  If you use your hose a lot, then this is probably something you would love owning too.

Nutrovape Inhalable Energy Aid

natural energy is something I haven’t been blessed with. I hear about several different things out there in all forms that will offer a bit of natural energy.

 


In my search to find that energy, the thing that works best for me is the food I put in my body. When I add more fruits and veggies and stay hydrated I tend to feel better during the day.


My problem is that I am addicted to that comfort food and it is hard to give it up. Sometimes I just need an extra kick to see if I can get motivated to even get out of the bed during the day.


I can’t say I am really even a social smoker. I have a pack of cigs that will prob last me over 6 months. I have secretly wanted to vape some of those good smelling juices, but don’t want to form another habit.


When I seen this inhalable energy aid, i really wanted to try it. It is cute, it is different. It seems safe enough.

energy4

It came in and I thought to myself after the first puff that it would be something I would buy in the future. I love the menthol taste of it. While it didn’t make me jump up out of the recliner, it made my head feel kind of dizzy.


Of course only a few days trying these I had a onset of Bell’s Palsy (facial paralysis) and haven’t been able to enjoy it much do to the lack of being able to inhale ::Sigh::


Would I buy this in the future.. I say yes. Not because it miraculously gave me that natural energy. But because I did like the taste of it, the way its made and the way it did make me feel. I can’t wait to be able to inhale again 🙂

    .

While we have had this type of hose before, this is the first one I have had from this company.  I decided to keep this one hooked to house so I could use it for small jobs around the front yard and on the porch.  It seems to be working really well in the times I have used it. 

I like it because it isn’t heavy or bulky and then easy to store once  I am done with it.  It is available on Amazon for under $20.00.

If you don’t have a water hose yet, be sure and consider this one!
