This Royal Hotel Bedding Gray and White Meridian Duvet set is absolutely stunning. I really love the Moroccan theme with this pattern. At the same time, it’s so clean and modern. I am just thrilled that I was afforded the opportunity to review their beautiful product I exchange for an unbiased and honest review. I ordered the King size. It states on the package that it will also accommodate a California King also. I received in the package, 1 duvet cover and 2 king sized shams.
I am so sensitive to many fabrics. I have insane allergies, and that’s moving towards a lot of manmade fabrics. I feel like you can’t even trust some labels anymore. My mom has purchased me all cotton shirts before. You know just by touching them that there is no way that’s cotton material. It’s also getting confusing to read bedding labels. So many products boast a huge thread count, and then they turn out to be thin, and poorly made. I used to only associate thread count with cotton also. I have noticed that they are attaching it to other materials. With Royal Hotel Bedding’s Duvet labeling, it turns out to be 100% true. I was so excited and relieved. It may say 300 thread count, but it also states Egyptian Cotton. I have heard a lot about Egyptian Cotton and thread count. I now completely believe what I have heard. The material the duvet and shams are made out is quite amazing. It is thick and oh so soft. You can stay snuggled in it forever, lol. It’s definitely hard to get out of.
Quality wise, I haven’t been able to find any imperfections. The stitching is tight. The buttons and button holes line up beautifully and are done well. The material is thick, very soft cotton. The shams are done just beautifully. I really like the two tone with this duvet set. I included a picture that shows that one side is grey and if you flip it, the other side is white. The opening to insert the pillow into the sham is on the white side. Since the opening is on the end , you could still use it white side up if you wanted too.
I really can’t say enough about this duvet set. I think the Moroccan pattern is beautiful. The 300 thread count Egyptian Cotton material is soft and truly luxurious. You will definitely find it hard to get out of bed after lying under this, lol. And to top it off, it was definitely made to be top notch. It is most definitely a dreamy set.
The comforter I used in the duvet is a very soft and comfy comforter. I love that it is allergy friendly with it’s down alternative fill. I am just thrilled that I was also afforded the opportunity to review Royal Hotel Bedding’s King/California King Size Down Alternative Comforter in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. It comes packaged tightly in a clear zippered case. Don’t expect to ever get it back in that case, lol. Once you open it and fluff it out, it fills with air and becomes a very large and fluffy king size comforter.
This down alternative comforter is made from 300 thread count microfiber. It is soft and easy to wash and dry. Microfiber is pretty easy to care for fortunately. It is segmented, which helps it to be warmer by trapping air and body heat. This box stitching also helps the fill to stay evenly spread through the comforter and not slide more to one end or the other. This comforter will also fit a California king. It is 106″x90″. The fiberfill is 600z filling. This weight is considered medium weight and should be great year round. I know I really like it.
You can use it plain or you can cover it with a pretty duvet set, which is what I did. They have a piece of material sewn into the corners that you can use to button it into a duvet set. I included a picture of it. It is just so soft and comfortable to wrap yourself in. I am one of those people that needs her bed to be dreamy to sleep in, lol. This comforter definitely fits the bill. It is beautifully made. The material, stitching, and fill are all done so well. I am very impressed with Royal Hotel Bedding’s products.

I received a pair of these Symphonized NRG Premium Genuine Wood In Ear Noise Isolating Headphones with Mic and Nylon Cable for the purpose of unbiased and honest review. My family loves music. My husband can’t get through the day without having in ear headphones and music. This particular set arrived nicely packaged with the in ear headphones, 2 sets of replacement ear coverings in black, 3 pairs replacement ear coverings in red, directions, and a storage bag in a natural fabric with satin cord drawstring. These replacement in ear coverings have the same size and smaller size replacements.
I really like the nylon string. It’s a great feel, great sound, doesn’t kink or twist like the regular cable ones. I put them on and used them backwards, lol, the first time. Technically, the left ear is the side with the mic on it. The 3.5 mm jack has a 24K coating on it to ensure incredible sound and lower interference. I like to use audio cables in my home and car that have the 24K coating on it. It truly makes an incredible difference in clarity. My son has a portable DVD player we use in the car. We use an audio cable with the 24K coating on them, to play the audio through our car speakers. Since we changed to that cable, the sound difference is amazingly better. When you first put these in your ears, and play music, turn your volume down! The sound in these ear phones is clear and loud. The ear buds are made out of silicone. This helps to give a great noise cancelling effect and comfortable fit. These are noise cancelling too, so the sound is isolated right to your ear drums, lol. I almost hurt my ears, and I really didn’t have it turned up that much at all. I played Rick James, Blake Shelton, Snoop Dog, and so on. Many different genre, and they all sounded amazing. You could actually feel the beat in your ear. I haven’t experienced that before in an in ear headphone, so I was pleasantly surprised. The bass was awesome. Bass is the first thing to suffer with all types of headphones. So, I was very pleasantly surprised. The wood housing attributes to the wonderful bass sound. These are plenty roomy too. You shouldn’t be tugging at these cords. They are approx. 53″ long, and about 3ft to the split in the cord. The mic is on the left side, and it’s push button, easy to use. It has a plastic housing.
My husband is laying claim to these with his love of music. He listens to music while he works, but needs to be able to answer his calls. I have never liked a pair of in ear headphones as much as these before, lol. He’s lucky I love him so much.

I am very excited to have this Taser. have been wanting one for a long time. I am licensed to carry conceal, but some times in the summer when my son and I run out for a walk, it’s not easy to carry conceal. I am very pleased that I was afforded the opportunity to review Terminator’s Stun Gun with Flashlight – 25,000,000 V in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. What comes in the box is one rechargeable stun gun with LED light with wrist strap and one black case with belt loot attachment.
The stun gun works like a champ. When it arrives, you will need to charge it first thing. It can’t help you protect yourself with no charge, lol. On the butt end of this unit is a built in plug. There is a black sliding latch. Slide it to the right, and the prongs will pop out. Then just plug it in for at least 5 hours. The operating buttons of this unit are on the left. There is a sliding button that moves up in 2 steps. First, or middle setting is the LED light. Slide it up the one and the light automatically comes on. Slide it up again and the unit is armed. There is a black button above this sliding off/light/armed button. This black button activates the stun gun. The stun gun is only active on when this black button is compressed. Now, when you try it, make sure you are pointing it down and you have your arm extended from your body. There are 25,000,000 V activated when you use this stun gun. You do not want to hit yourself or anyone else while you test it. I tested it first at night because I wanted to use the flashlight and I wanted to see the sparks. You will definitely hear it and see some sparks. There is also a wrist strap. This is important to use, so it can’t be knocked out of your hand. I am very impressed by the LED light. You can tell by my photo how bright this light actually is. And, since it is an LED, it should last a while. It’s a great size too. It is 4″ long, and just under 3″ wide. It has a rubberized plastic shell, which makes it easier to keep a good grip. The black case has a Velcro closure and has elastic on the sides for a secure, snug fit. The belt loop cracks me up. It’s sewn on crooked, but it works, and that’s all I care about.
I will definitely be using this on my walks with my son during the summer months. I have a hard time carrying concealed in the summer months. And, when we go for a walk, it is normally a quick decision and out the door we go. I can grab my med pack, phone and this stun gun and out we go. Nowadays, you never know. We live in a great area, but even here we have occasionally robberies, etc.. The summer months bring a lot of tourists too. To top it off, we have a neighborhood pit-bull that likes to escape. He is a baby for it’s owner, but not so friendly when his owner isn’t around. I believe fully in being prepared at all times to defend yourself and your family. I have been a victim in the past and I don’t want that ever again. I laugh at the media and their say no defense. Believe you me, it doesn’t work! This stun gun is an incredible price. It fits into everyone’s budget.
Some of the best areas to target in self defense, with a stun gun, are: the shoulders, hips, thighs, abdominal area and buttocks. Hopefully having a would be attacker just see this stun gun will be deterrent enough. Having this many volts go through a would be attacker, should render them down for the count in a couple seconds. It causes loss of muscle control, confusion, disorientation. And for some people, it can cause a heart attack.
Always check with your state laws when acquiring and using any weapon like this stun gun. It is legal in most states, but each state could have it’s own regulations regarding carry and use. Responsibility is key.

I am a big fan of solar power. It’s always great to conserve energy. It’s also not always guaranteed that you will be near conventional energy when you need it. I know our lives revolve around our hand held devices. With society today, I feel it’s very important to have a means of communication ready at all times. With SunLabz Portable Solar Charger (7W), it’s possible to have a back up source of energy readily available. I was afforded the opportunity to review their charger in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. This particular unit is made to be extremely portable while maintaining it’s charging ability, as well as charging your unit on the go.
This solar charger is equipped with a 5v USB charging port, It is located on the back of the charger, inside of a zippered mesh compartment. When not charging, you can store the included USB cord and other accessories in here. This unit also comes with 4 suction cups and 4 carbineer clips. On each outer corner there is a grommet. You can either mount this charger via those clips or suction cups depending on your needs. They include an instruction sheet that shows you the optimum way to charge your panel. Pretty much, full sun is best, not a surprise, lol. It also suggests to not charge a device if the sun is weak, cloudy. Not having a strong stable charge can hurt our devices.
The carbineer clips would make this perfect to strap on your pack while out and about. It’s extremely stable and very secure with the carbineers. It won’t jostle around. Your phone could still charge while it’s strapped on your pack too, while still being very secured. Our phones nowadays are extremely expensive, but since the charging port is on the back, it will be nicely secured against your pack in a zippered compartment. You can also attach this charger to your window, or other suitable location with the suctions cups. My power used to always go out when my phone was near dead. Due to severe health issues, my phone is my life line. I can always have a charge with the ability to use this SunLabz charger. This is priceless for me and my family.
They use high efficiency solar cells with hardened anti-scratch and protective coating. These cells were sewn into a pvc fabric so they could withstand the weather. This charger is weather resistant. The USB charging port on the back has a cover that pushes into the opening like our phones do. SunLabz states they use the highest grade cells on the market. These have a 22% transfer rate.
I have another solar charger that is my personal one. This one I find to be more durable and a lot more user friendly. There are so many ways it can be used. I don’t have to stop my activities, since it can be strapped on. And with the ability to use suction cups too, there are so many surface that can be used. I also really appreciate it’s durability greatly. It’s a unit I can rely on and not worry about. I fell very comfortable in recommending this product.

I’ve recently started using a French press. I’m quickly becoming a convert. They are so easy to use, and you can use them for more than just coffee. I was sent Pyora’s French Press Coffee and Tea Maker 34oz, Stainless Steel for the purpose of inspection and unbiased and honest review. It arrived quickly. The unit arrives intact in the box. No assembly is required. There is just a thin layer of bubble wrap around the unit. I am really glad it arrived in one piece. This French coffee press is very appealing to look at. It’s also very light weight, since the unit is for the majority, glass. There is a stainless steel frame to hold the glass carafe. The top is plastic and stainless steel. The plunger unit is also stainless steel. There is no need for replaceable filters with this unit, since there is a built in screen with the plunger. When using coffee, it’s better to use course grounds, so you don’t have to worry about any leaking through the filter.
I chose to make an organic, loose leaf green tea in the French press for this review. The directions are on the box on how many scoops of coffee per cup. There are no separate instructions in the box, so don’t throw your box away until you’ve got it down. This is a 34oz French press, and there are 8oz in a cup. Mugs normally hold more. You can get three healthy mugs of coffee out of this press. With my loose leaf tea, I free poured the tea into the bottom. I am now used to the level where the plunger goes to. You can practice with it empty to gauge where it lands. After your grounds, or tea are in the carafe, you pour your hot, not boiling, water to the level desired. Now you leave it alone to steep. I let it steep for about 4-5 minutes, and then put the plunger in and compressed it down slowly. It brings all the grounds or tea down to the base. You will leave the plunger all the way down until you are done with the coffee or tea. It can be poured without touching the lid. My green tea came out perfectly with this press. It screened out every bit. I had absolutely no tea leaves mixed in with my tea.
This is a great way to enjoy your friends and family while entertaining. You can make your fresh coffee while staying in the room with them. Especially if you are sitting on the patio with them relaxing. Some places are not so conducive of a regular coffee pot also. For example, if you are camping, or picnicking at the beach. You can heat water up on the grill, and then make fresh coffee with the press.
This is an easy way to make sure you can enjoy the healthy antioxidants that coffee and teas provide.

Tea is a staple in my daily routine. I absolutely love to drink a cup of hot organic tea with raw honey every night. I have frequent anaphylactic reactions and my throat is always swollen and raw. A good, healthy cup of tea always soothes it. I was quite pleased when I was afforded the opportunity to review Leafholic’s Cute Silicone Tea Infuser with Drip Tray in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. With an infuser, so many more varieties of tea are possible. You can even create your own special blend. My favorite tee to drink is one that encompasses all the antioxidants and properties that really soothe and help heal my throat. There is a big difference in my throat when I run out of my tea.
This Monkey infuser with the burgundy to red face is just precious and fun. This is the father in the series. When he heats up from your tea, his face turns from burgundy to red. It adds some whimsy to your tea. I love that. I also love the silicone. It’s so easy to care for, clean and store. Silicone can handle high temperatures. Make your tea water very hot, because you’ll want to have your tea steep for at least 4 minutes before drinking it. Having a drip tray is wonderful. You don’t have to jump up and run to the sink to put your infuser down. You can sit and relax and finish your tea, while still being snuggled up to your husband. That makes that drip tray priceless. Since this infuser sits on the brim and is soft, food grade, bpa free silicone, you can drink your tea while it is still attached. I leave it attached until my water line dips below the infuser. I want to make sure I get all the goodness of the tea leaves.
I am really enjoying this tea infuser. It holds the perfect amount of loose tea leaves. It fits on my favorite big, fat rimmed mug as well as regular coffee cups. Its pretty steady on the mug also. I was able to drink out of it with the infuser on it. The infuser never even moved. I definitely give it two thumbs.

It’s hard to find thick sheets nowadays. I hate getting a new pair, and then when you open the package, the material is so thin. I have even had one pair actually get bald patches after their first washing. I was very, very pleased to find a quality sheet set when I opened this package. I was afforded the opportunity to review Olivia Branch’s 1800 Prime Collection Bed Sheet Set in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. I received the set in blue. It’s a light, bright color that reminds me of summer and the beach. Blue is also known to be more soothing and relaxing, which is perfect for the bedroom. They do offer these sheets in 12 different colors. I’m impressed by the selection choices.
In the queen size sheet set you will get a flat sheet, a fitted sheet and two standard pillow cases. These pillow cases are roomy. They also have pretty satin stripes down the sides by the opening. The sheets fit up to a 16″ deep mattress. That should pretty much cover most mattresses. They do recommend machine washing in cold water, and to tumble dry on low. Do not use fabric softener on these sheets. It can affect the color of the sheets. These are 1800 thread count, microfiber sheets. The stitching is done well. I yanked and tugged, and everything held up well. They are very soft, which is greatly appreciated in a sheet set. The pillowcases have a feature I just love. They have that flap you tuck the pillow under. That way your pillow case doesn’t slide off while you’re in bed. I absolutely hate when my pillowcase keeps sliding off my pillow.
I washed and dried the sheets to test out the wrinkle free claim. The third photo shows what they looked liked when they were done. They weren’t very wrinkly but not completely wrinkle free. I even stopped the dryer and took them out immediately. Very few things are truly wrinkle fee though, so I think they did very well.
They are priced very competitively and I feel comfortable in recommending this product.

All natural and organic items are very important to me and my family. I suffer from numerous severe life threatening allergies. It’s a daily battle to avoid having an anaphylactic reaction. There are way too many chemicals being added to everything we consume and use nowadays. In Vitamin is a great online store that offers all natural and organic personal and home products as well as ingredients for make your own. I was afforded the opportunity to review a couple items at a reduced cost in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. I am really impressed by their quality of life purpose their store affords.
I received their certified kosher GMO free Citric Acid Anhydrous and their certified kosher, wild harvested Myrrh Gum Powder ingredients. They arrived quickly and were well packaged. I love being able to find GMO fee products and kosher certified products. They are not that easy to find unfortunately. Both ingredients are a powder form product. They were clean, un-caked and in perfect condition. I am really happy with the quality of these ingredients.
I make my own soaps and lotions. And I am beginning to make my own lip balms too. Citric acid is a great preservative for all natural products. It greatly increases their shelf life. I am adding this ingredient to my products I plan on selling in my daughter in law’s beauty studio. I haven’t gone to using citric acid before because I couldn’t find a product I could trust. This one will be a healthy, chemical free addition to my products.
Myrrh Gum Powder has many great uses. The quality of this product was also top notch, and I am very pleased. I’m excited about using it, both as a supplement and as an ingredient in my soap I make. It is really healthy and healing for your skin, and can really be beneficial if you suffer from eczema.
This company has such a wide variety of products from organic bamboo toothbrushes to laundry soap. They offer free shipping over $25 in products, and their service has been wonderful.

Star Wars! Who doesn’t love Star Wars. I’m wondering how many people are going to dress in costume to bake with these, lol. An intergalactic adventure, culinary style. I was quite thrilled to be afforded the opportunity to review EGN-Corp’s Silicone Star Wars Molds at a reduced cost in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. These are so fun to look at. Cooking can be a chore for many people, but these should definitely put a smile on your face. There are six molds in the package. The molds include: Darth Vader (red mold), Hans Solo (grey mold), R2-D2 (blue mold), Storm Trooper Helmet (white mold), X-Wing Fighter (yellow mold), and Millennium Falcon (orange mold). These are food grade silicone molds and they are BPA free.
I love silicone in the kitchen. It is so easy to cook with all around. Silicone has a very wide temperature range. You can put it in the freezer and it can be used in the oven up to 450 degrees F. The only thing it can’t handle is open flame cooking. Because of the temperature range, there are many things you can do with these molds. Obviously you can make fun ice cubes. And they don’t have to be regular ice cubes. You can make them out of juice, or coffee or tea. You can add a tiny bit of food coloring and add them to an adult drink. These molds are perfect for candy and chocolate making. I have to make all my foods from scratch, so I will definitely be making chocolate candies with these. But it doesn’t stop there. Brownies, cakes, mini muffins are all possible with these molds. You can even melt cheese and mold your cheese into these star wars shapes for a party or just for fun.
These silicone molds are also great for crafting. I personally would do one or the other per set. If I choose do crafts with mine, will get a separate pair. I make my own soap due to insane allergies. These would make for fun soap shapes. And since they handle high temps, I can still do my hot process soap making and use these molds. Another thing you can do is crayon making. Just melt your crayons down, fill the molds, wait for them to cool and then pop them out. When popping anything out of these molds, try to stretch the mold from each side, and then turn it upside down and push from the bottom. Try to push evenly, so one side doesn’t break off. There are even recipes for side walk chalk online that you can make with these. Basically, you are limited by your imagination when it comes to these silicone Star Wars molds.
I made mini vanilla cakes. My son hates sweets but loves this cake recipe. He is on the road a lot too. Being able to just grab a bite is his ideal scenario. A few of my cakes broke off on the corners because I didn’t push evenly while popping them out. I didn’t have to grease down the molds I didn’t have to grease the molds first. Cleaning them is easier if you have a brush. That way you can get into the tiny creases to make sure you got them completely clean. We have bottle brushes, and that worked perfectly.
I really like this mold set. They are made from thick, sturdy silicone. With their high quality, they should last a long time. These molds are definitely a welcomed addition to my kitchen and I feel very comfortable in recommending them.

We have owned several different types of lumbar supports in our past. It’s tricky to find one that provides enough support without being hard. This one is actually pretty soft and comfortable to lean on. Not only is it comfortable to lean on, but it cradles your entire lower back. I was sent this Vive Health Chair Lumbar Support in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. I gave it to my son to use. He has chronic lower back pain.
He does a lot of driving, and his back can really hurt on those long drives. This cushion works well in a seat like a car seat or a living room chair. It is pretty thick, so a smaller desk chair isn’t deep enough. You end up sitting to close to the end of the chair. Yes, you’re back will feel great, but your tushy will be close to the end of the seat, lol.
There is an elastic strap to fit in it pace over a smaller chair. The material is softer. It is also “clingy” in the sense that you will not slip down because you are leaning on it. You can remove and wash the cover. The actual size of this lumbar support is 13″ x 13″. It is also 4″ deep. This company also offers a lifetime guarantee with this lumbar support cushion.
It truly is helping to relieve lower back pain. You can actually get a respite once you relax on this. It’s great that it’s so portable too. Especially if you are on the road a lot like my son. You can see how it curves on the sides, cradling your lower back. This helps a lot with proper spine alignment, which in turn helps relieve the pressure being applied to your spine and coordinating muscles, and nerves.
I recently had major abdominal surgery. And when I was able to try out this lumbar support cushion, I was very impressed. It really helped relieve all the pressure and pulling I had. I didn’t even realize how much I was actually having until I sat and used this cushion. It actually made me feel like I had more energy for a little bit. Unfortunately my son has laid claim to it, lol. I’ll have to sneak in and use it while he’s not looking. Needless to say, I feel quite comfortable in recommending this product.
