Most of my family lives across different states. I am the present shopper, recycled giver, and packaging czar in my household. I am 5’3″ and when I am packaging larger boxes, watching my juggle with tape, a large box, and a pair of scissors, can be quite entertaining. I was thrilled to be afforded the opportunity to review As Seen On TV’s Dispenserless Tape in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
It tells you right on the front of the roll of tape, that the roll is 55 yards long, 2″ wide and 3 mils thick. There are faint black dots all throughout the roll. These dots mark the segments. The segments are 12″ long. This means that every 12″ you can tear the tape by hand quite easily. It’s pretty much a jump for joy occasion. I cannot tell you how many times I have cut my hand open either on a pair of scissors or on the teeth side of the dispenser.
My mom, who has arthritis in her hands, and is on the weaker side, can tear this tape. This is a godsend for people with arthritis or other disabilities. My seven year old can even tear this tape. He can also wrap himself in this tape, so we will be watching him with it, lol.
When the package arrived, there was a scent from the bag. It’s just an adhesive smell that quickly fades after removing it from the shipping bag. I have asthma, and it didn’t affect me. This literally is the only negative I could find with this dispenserless tape. And that’s reaching for a negative. This tape is awesome. I honestly don’t think I can go back to the regular packing tape now. No more cut hands for this gal. I most definitely recommend this Dispenserless tape.

I am really enjoying this 6 in 1 Camping Gear Kit by InYard. I actually own a few of these pieces that come in the bag. That’s how useful and wonderful we think these items are. I already own the exact credit card tool and CRKT spork. We have different versions of all the other components too. These items are absolutely essential to any preparedness measures and camping. It’s important to be prepared for anything when camping. Especially so if you have your family with you that you are responsible for. I am just thrilled that I was afforded the opportunity to review this product in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. To buy this as a set is not only a smart decision but a good decision for your wallet. I know what these pieces cost separately.
This kit comes with a large, 10L waterproof storage bag. This bag is fantastic on both land and water. If you are out camping, you would want to put your personal items in this before heading out on a canoe or kayak. If this baby goes overboard, it will float. We have lost a wonderful fishing pole and expensive new reel to the waters below, lol. Now, when kayaking, we try to put rod floating devises on those too. Always make sure you rol this down and make sure there’s a tight seal. It’s really easy to do. You can fit so much in here. I like the see thru window too. It’s easier to see if water is getting in and if you forgot to put something you’ll need it there. At a camp site, when night falls, things can get a little more moist because of the temperature dip. This bag will help with that, and it well help to keep bugs off your important items. For example, you can store your matches and dry timber in this bag, so you always have a viable way to make fire.
Also in this kit, is the credit card multi tool. I love mine. My husband gave me one to carry about 4 years ago. It is in perfect condition and has come in handy more than once. It’s great for throwing in our pocket for a quick walk, small enough and handy enough to keep in your purse, like I do. This multi tool has a tooth pick, tweezers, Serrated knife which has a specific shaped wrench openings in it. These can also be used so you can tie the knife onto a piece of wood and used like a spear to acquire food, or try to defend yourself. There is a working compass, a small magnifying glass that could help with signaling, but more likely fire starting. on the side of the card, there is a small multi functional piece that pulls out. This has a can opener, a screw driver,, a razor blade. The razor blade could use some sharpening so it’s more effective. That’s not a big deal to do, and an Awl.
Also in this bag is an emergency whistle. It’s important to have a device like this both on dry land and on the water. We try to make sure we have an emergency whistle attached to our life vests. It can deter strangers from approaching, as well as animals from approaching. It’s a great universal signal for help.
We also already own a CRKT spork. These are so solid and convenient to use and carry. It comes with an included carabineer style clip. You can easily clip it your pack if you wanted to. This utensil also has some tool functions built into it. There are three hex wrenches and a bottle opener. In a pinch, you can dig with it too. It’s solidly built and should last you for years.
It’s very important to have a fire source. An emergency can happen at any time. Being able to start a fire you can then provide light, heat, a cooking source, a source for disinfecting water, and a means to keep animals at bay. Fire is also used for signaling. Included in this kit is a great sized Magnesium rod and striker. The striker even has ruler measurements on it.
There is a separate small bag in this kit than has a 30″x51″ microfiber towel/blanket in it. These absorb so much water. They are fantastic. I have another one already. These absorb water so well, that they are great to carry to the beach, lake or pool. They dry quickly and will help you to keep warm in a pinch. the included microfiber towel will also provide some ground cover for you too. I hate sitting in the dirt myself, lol. The bag can be used for other storage if needed. It is a drawstring bag. The string can be taken out in a pinch. It happens to be a piece of paracord.
The last but not least important item in this incredible kit is a Commando 360 degrees wire saw. I think it is so convenient to be able to carry something so important, but without really adding any weight to your bag or pack. You can use this to cut small branches to help set up snare traps, etc.. You can clear away small branches from your deer stand, and so and so on, lol. It is constructed out of stainless steel and has a 360 degree rotating capability.
This bag is just full of essentials every family should have on hand. I can’t state enough about preparedness. The values in this kit is wonderful and I feel comfortable in recommending it.

I am really enjoying the usefulness of Ozark Armament’s 45 Degree Offset Picatinny/Weaver Rail Mount. I absolutely love my AR, but unfortunately recently figured out that even though I am right handed, I am left eye dominant. I so wanted to use a combo of a simple red dot and iron sites. So you can imagine how thrilled I was to be afforded the opportunity to review this mount in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. There’s something about just using iron sight’s that really calls to me. Until I can master my left eye, I am going to have to get a scope. With this offset rail mount, I can have both on my AR at the same time. Even if you swear by a red dot, I am a firm believer in having a back up plan. I took a photo of a stripped upper , so you can get the idea of what I am talking about. There is a simple red dot, and one iron site on the 45 degree rail mount. I just think that’s perfect! With these, it’s so easy to have both, and to have both sighted in. This 45 degree rail mount is black anodized aluminum. It’s made very well. It’s very straight forward to attach. If you can open and close a vise, then you can attach this, same principle. It has a very secure grip to. There is no movement whatsoever, even with jarring. Always check your firearm completely over before and after to make sure it’s still secure though, as with all attachments. You can use an attachment like this for more than sites. It’s quite versatile and useful. You can easily attach a laser or light . So many people are even adding a fixed knife to their AR’s. This would work for that too. This mount is so simple in design and form but has an incredible utilization factor. Many architects strive for this. I really can’t say enough about this 45 degree offset mount. It’s exactly what I needed. My husband is current military and we sat down with this piece and played with it. We both feel very comfortable in recommending this mount. Now I need to get another one for my front sight, lol.

I am really impressed with Toilet Tree Products’ Deluxe Bamboo Shower Seat Bench with Storage Shelf. It is so stylish and functional. Bamboo is known to be great in rooms with moisture, and then you add a wonderful finish, and you are good to go. My older son is a woodworker. He had a piece he built come in 2nd place in a national competition in Las Vegas a few years ago. He said the finish appears to be like one that he likes to use. He also said the piece was too nice for a bathroom, lol.
You will need to assemble this beautiful bench when it arrives. They provide all the necessary hardware. We did not have any included instructions, but it was a simple assembly. There are the 4 legs, the shelf and the seat base, that is it. The hardware is heavy duty. Sometimes with furniture kits, you look at the provided hardware and think, “Are you kidding me?”. That’s definitely not the case with this piece. With proper care, this bench should last a long time
Our bathrooms are pretty small, so we put this in our entry way as a place to sit down and take our shoes off or on. We are a no shoes in the house family. We have a variety of weight ranges up to about 230lbs. This bamboo bench sits solidly. No creaking or any sounds noticed at all. If we ever need seat assistance in the shower due to illness or injury, this will be a great piece. Besides it being solid in build, the slats are perfect for water flow. You won’t have any water build up that cold cause rot and mold. The shelf would make it handy to store soaps, a loofah and razor just perfectly. With the lip on the shelf, your items won’t just slide of either.
We absolutely love this Deluxe Bamboo Shower Seat by Toilet Tree Products and most definitely feel comfortable in highly recommending this product.

I remember the scare a few years ago when many people’s furry family members were sickened and killed by bad dog food. From my understanding, there is another dog food scare out right now. Pets are family members. It’s as important to feed pets quality food and treats as it is our human family members. I have insane life threatening food allergies and it’s become habit to read every ingredient list. Almost everyone on our block has a dog. A really good friend up the street dog walks and sits to make ends meet. A lot of these poor doggies also have allergies. They get itchy skin, and their little hairs fall out and more. A lot of the time it’s food related. Their diets are also monitored almost as strictly as mine. These treats have a tiny ingredient list: Rice Flour, Vegetable Glycerin, Natural Meat Flavor, Caramel Color, and Garlic Juice. That is also the exact order the ingredient list is in on the bag. They are pretty much in the shape of hearts and are about the size of a quarter. I like the fact that you can see through the bag. You know what you’re getting and there should be no surprises I this bag.
My friend who dog sits said her little guys absolutely loved these treats. There were no naysayers in the group, lol. She didn’t have to worry about any of the ingredients with any of their diets. She was absolutely thrilled that I shared these her way to help her and her crew out. I was afforded the opportunity to review these Pet Healthy Holdings’ K9 Fat Free Dog Treats in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. I figured what better testing site than with a large variety of pooches. These are also stated to be sodium free, cholesterol free and crunchy – dog teeth friendly. She had no concerns whatsoever about giving these to her current furry family. We both feel very comfortable in recommending them.

Argan oil is such a rich luxurious oil. It is well know in the hair and skin product industry for it’s nourishing properties. I am just thrilled that I was afforded the opportunity to review Desert Beauty’s Premium Virgin Argan Oil in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. Agan oil is made from the Argan nut from the Argan tree. These trees are native to one region in Morocco, Africa. The native women there are known to smash these nuts open on rocks and use the oils to keep their hair and skin healthy from the harsh weather conditions. They also use it in their diets. It is chock full of antioxidants and vitamins and proteins.
This particular oil is also full of other natural oils: jojoba, coconut, vitamin E, Ramnoides oil and oblipicha oil. This makes a perfect leave in hair conditioner. Apply this to damp hair. Only use a little I put about a nickel size amount on my hands, rub my hands together, and then apply the leave in conditioner through my hair. My mom loves this Argan Oil. She says it leaves her hair so soft and flowy, lol. When you get older, your hair tends to be more course. She likes how her hair feels with this conditioner. Oils like these are really good for all skin types too. Don’t be afraid to use it if you have oily skin. This won’t affect it at all. I have problematic skin and oils like these help my skin heal. These oils actually get absorbed quickly as they nourish your skin, hair and scalp. There’s a nice clean, mild scent to this conditioner. It’s most definitely pleasant and refreshing. This Argan Oil is also great to curb dead ends, frizz, itchy dry scalp, and dry course hair. Instead of using a product full of chemicals, using this instead, will not only work better for you, but it is also so much healthier for you.
We are really enjoying this oil. My mom has claimed it actually, lol. So, I most definitely feel comfortable in recommending it.

This Survivor Filter is now my favorite. I am beyond thrilled that I was afforded the opportunity to review this product at a reduced price in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. We as a family are trying to slowly build our preparedness up. It’s a wonderful thought to know that in an emergency, and you are our of water, that you can find water safely for your family in other ways. You never know when a bad storm can strike, shutting you off from your water supply and you’re ability to get regular drinking water. These are also perfect and light enough, to take hiking and camping with you. The same holds true for long car trips. And these are only a few scenarios. We, as a people, tend to take our basic necessities for granted. Just take a moment and imagine, what if. Especially if you have a family that depends on you. That’s a sobering thought to me and my husband.
This Survivor Filter has become my favorite because of it’s size and replaceable filters. I just love the fact that I can use replaceable filters instead of throwing out an entire unit. This unit uses three different filters. The first stage being at the bottom of the unit. The first filter that the water will pass through is the mesh filter. The second stage is the Ultra filter and the third and last stage is the carbon filter. The give you great instructions on cleaning and replacing these filters with the unit. They also have a website: www.survivorfilter.com that has everything you need to know about this straw. I like having a back up source of information for when I lose my paperwork, lol. The bottom of this filter straw has threads that will fit to a 28 mm bottle, which is a the size of a soda bottle, not a regular water bottle. This way you do not have to continually bend down to the fresh water source. You’ll just have to fill a bottle and be able to drink standing or sitting. This will help save your back. The triple filtration filters down to 0.05 Microns. That filters out a lot! Only use this on fresh water. This filter cannot turn salt water into drinking water.
A couple years ago a hurricane slammed into Haiti. These poor people didn’t have fresh water for the longest time. Absolutely devastating to the people. Many people ended up dying from disease brought on by the lack of clean water. These people ended up surviving on filter straws like these, while they were waiting for a fresh water source to be brought back to them. Fresh water really equals life. You cannot have life without it.
This Survivor straw is so easy and convenient to use. There is minimal waste since you can clean and replace the filters. They do suggest cleaning the filters, as described in their instruction manual, with vinegar. Years ago, I was an in home nurse for a baby on a vent, and more. We used to sterilize her equipment in vinegar. You need to have things soak for a minimum of 24 hours to sterilize in vinegar. I could not find a negative in this Survivor Filter. I highly recommend them. I will be getting more for my family.

I have a 20 year old son who is a commercial electrician apprentice. He is up on his feet all day. He has gone through many dozens of shoe inserts. He can never find any to last or help. I gave these Soleeze inserts to him hoping they would help with support. My son does not skimp on shoes either. He wears expensive Red Wings. I was so excited to see a shoe insert with springs. The main issue he has had with shoe inserts, is that they lose their support almost immediately. If you spend 12 long hours on your feet, including and not limited to jumping down from platforms, and ladders, you’ll tend to flatten out those supportive inserts. He has even used another named brand very expensive shoe insert. He loves them, but can only use them sparingly because otherwise, they only last a week.
I took a picture before putting them into his boots. I tried to get a picture that actually showed the depth of the heel. These are amazing. I just stood on them by themselves, and you can completely feel the foot support. These are definitely for foot support, not just arch support. My son wears a men’s size 10. I gave him the woman’s’ that would fit a man to a size 10. They work perfectly in his boots. He didn’t have to do any finagling.
My son stated they gave him incredible foot support all day. There has been no diminishing in support with hard daily work use. They have helped with foot and leg fatigue, allowing more energy throughout the day. He also stated they do help with shock absorption a lot. His boots are heavy duty work boots, and he puts them through heavy work. They were a noticeable help to him when jumping down and while carrying heavy loads. He was hesitant about trying a new pair of inserts, stated he had actually given up on them until now. He’s too young to give up. I’m so relived he has found relief with these shoe inserts.
I am absolutely beyond thrilled that I was sent these by Soleeze for the purpose of inspection and an unbiased and honest review.

I am a big fan and user of Hyaluronic Acid and Vit. C for skin care. I am so glad that I was afforded the opportunity to review La Belleza’s Vitamin C Serum at a discount in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. This serum arrived quickly via Amazon prime shipping and it arrived in perfect condition. And I’m so glad it did, because La Belleza is full of antioxidants and vitamins which are so healthy and nourishing for your skin. What lady doesn’t want that?!
I have been using Hyaluronic acid and vitamin C for quite a few months now. It is a fantastic product for your skin. Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in our bodies. It helps our cells hold their water. As it decreases, our pore size enlarges, and our fine lines start appearing. Lovely, not..lol. It took over a month, but with using it twice daily, morning and night, my pore size has decreased and my fine lines are diminishing. It was so obvious, I love that.
Also with age, we start to get lovely spots from sun exposure, etc.. Vitamin C has really helped my skin to look brighter and clearer. It really does help to diminish are age spots. I really wish I could bathe in this stuff, lol.
Make sure you apply it twice daily to clean, dry skin. Give it some time to work. It takes time to work at the cellular level. And every body is different. You will not regret trying it if you stick with it. This product has a faint natural scent. It absorbs quickly and leaves behind no sticky residue. You will barely have any wait time before you can apply your creams and or makeup. It is very gentle on the skin. I have extremely sensitive skin and I have never had an issue. This particular product has Jojoba oil in it which has a great softening effect on the skin. Always do a test patch on your hand with a new product, just in case. I highly recommend this Vitamin C Serum.

This is most definitely the best jewelry cleaner I have used. I am just thrilled that I was afforded the opportunity to review it in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. My product arrived very quickly and in perfect condition. I love that it comes in a spray bottle. I have spilled many a jewelry cleaner that came in cup style. If you only plan on using this for jewelry, this should last a long time. It only took a few sprays on my 14kt gold and ruby ring, a light scrubbing with an old tooth brush, and a rub dry with a lint free paper towel, to get my ring to sparkle and shine. I have soaked my ring in vinegar for 24 hours and have used multiple other jewelry cleaners. My ring has never looked this good. I posted a picture so you can see it. Even the nook and crannies are sparkly.
This jewelry cleaner is made in the USA. This is something very important to us. It contains NO ammonia, abrasives or acids. It is earth friendly and biodegradable. There is also only a mild scent to this product. The mildness of this product would compare to a Windex product. I also really like the purple coloring. But you can do a lot more with this product. It did a great job wiping my laptop down. I sprayed some directly on a lint free paper towel, and wiped down both the screen and keyboard area. My screen was very clean and streak free. I can’t wait to do the fan blade test. I am recovering from major surgery, but as soon as I can stand to handle those blades, it’s on, lol. You can pretty much clean any solid surface type with this product. So convenient and safe for all types of jewelry. They include with the bottle a nice printed out sheet with the amazing breakdown of what this jewelry cleaner can do. My eyeglass lenses came out crystal clear. You may even find your husbands stealing it to clean the inside of their cars, lol.
There is even a website, www.jewelrycleaner.com, that you can peruse.
I have very sensitive skin and multiple severe allergies, and I had no trouble whatsoever with this product. I am really loving this product, and I know my jewelry is too. I finally have something safe enough to quickly professionally clean my jewelry. I whole heartedly recommend this product.
This can also be purchased on Amazon at: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00L1L1VGE/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
