Solar diamonds for your garden. – SolarDuke’s Solar Diamond Shaped Color Changing Landscape Lighting.


These lights are so pretty in person. I’m glad I took the chance. You get the four in a set, and I thin it is so unique that you can either use them tabletop or attach the stakes, and use them that way. I place mine in some potted plants on the deck, and they look so pretty in them, both during the day, and at night when the lights come on. Be very, very careful when removing them from the box upon arrival. That is literally my only negative with this product. When I opened them up, the solar panel tops look like their attached to the body of the lights. They are not. I had a couple fall down to the ground, and I am glad they didn’t break. I was on my deck when I opened them up, and my house is on piers, so I was happy they didn’t roll off. You do need to turn each light on upon arrival too. The power switch is clearly labeled, and it is on the underside of this solar panel top. Then, screw the tops on, and either set them out on your table to charge, or attach the stakes to them and set them out. The stakes just push onto the bottom of each light. They hold firmly too. First pull the plastic part of the stake out, and turn it around and reattach it to the pole.

The solar panels are very receptive. I have had no trouble with them charging from my covered deck. They are waterproof, so I do not need to remove them with it’s pouring, or when I water the plants. I live on the coast, and even though it’s a covered deck, water comes in and drenches everything anyhow, lol. The lights have a diamond shape to them, and not only are very pretty to look at, but really throw a really pretty light when they are on. They having been going on at dusk, and have lasted till sun up. My mom gets up early, and when she hits the deck around 6:30 a.m., they are still on, she tells me. I’m not up at that hour, lol. I absolutely love the soft colors these throw off. I normally like lights that stay on solid. These gently roll through different colors. Since they change so slowly, and gently on the eyes, I am really enjoying this set. Even though they are on stakes, they could get lost in your landscaping. I highly recommend them being in a flat border time of situation, or in potted plants, where they can be the star of the show. So far my lights have put up with the wind and weather. They are charging well, and operating like they should. These are really pretty lights.

I really lucked out and bought these lights on a flash sale, with my own money. – SolarDuke’s Solar Diamond Shaped Color Changing Landscape Lighting.

Inspection time. – [Upgraded Version] Ragu Directs’ Distianert Endoscope 8.5MM 2.0 Megapixel 2 In 1 Smartphone + USB



My husband and older son are commercial electricians, and carpenters. They work in really tight spaces sometimes, and when they go into an existing build and have to trouble shoot problems, an endoscope really helps them out. They already have and use one, so we are not new to them. We were happy to see this upgraded version. We already have one that we use via our Android phones and one that you need your computer on deck, to use it. This one has upped the game with technology, at an affordable price. We have Samsung phones: Edge 6 and Note 5, in our homes. This unit just plugs and plays via the camera. You need to flip up half of the USB port, to turn it into the micro USB end. Then attach it to your phone, and open up your camera. You have to agree to it, and then you are in. Then just follow the icons to snap photos or take videos. That is literally all you have to do. Your chosen decide you plug it into, is what powers it. As soon as you plug it in, the 6 LEDs turn on. They are very bright. Now, even though it is highly usable without the app on my phone, I went ahead and scanned the QR code in the instructional booklet, after using it both on my phone and laptop. So, it isn’t necessary, if you have limited space on your phone. The app is called UsbCamera, and it is free. You can’t even look at the app without the camera not being plugged in either. Then, you still have to allow your phone to use the camera for the USB. So, there really is no difference on my Note 5. This endoscope comes with drawstring storage bag, head attachments, an instruction booklet, and a mini CD. Now, I have a newer laptop with Windows 10 on it. I never install via a disc, unless I have too. So, I always try things straight forward, and then try the items it comes with, to really test out a product. It literally plugged into my laptop, and automatically installed its’ drivers. I never had to load the mini disc. This unit is 13ft long, and the head diameter is 8.5mm. It comes with a mirror, hook, and magnet attachments. They are simple attachments, and the magnet keeps coming loose on me. It is waterproof. So no worries about looking into clogged drains and toilets. Now. I did delete the app off of my phone shortly after install. With use, it stopped working well with the endoscope for me. It works better as plug and play on my phone. I was not able to separately control my LEDs, in regards to their brightness levels. That didn’t matter to me. They are bright, and when you shove it into places, it’s normally dark where you’re using it. The images aren’t as clear as my regular camera, or laptop camera is, but the images are still legible. These are the resolution specs from their site: “1600*1200 & 2.0 Megapixel.” You can tell it’s a 2megapixel camera. But, since this can send you a clear enough image to diagnose with, it’s all we need. It has been working well for us. We love the plug and play simplicity with the phone. It is so much more convenient for my guys this way. And it fits into any tool bag, as well.

Perfect for on the go. – RobinTech’s Premium Wireless Bluetooth Headphones.


My guys live with their headphones on. They are commercial electricians, and need to be available by phone at all times, but have to keep their hands free to work, obviously. And, not just work, but while driving too. Wireless, Bluetooth headphones are an essential for them. They also need to be durable to put up with the wear and tear they give them. This set from RobinTech is pretty nice. It arrives nicely packaged. Not the cheaper mail order packaging, used a lot, nowadays. In you package you will get 1 headphones, 1 micro USB charging cable, 1 instruction pamphlet, 1 storage case, 2 pairs of extra silicone ear buds (different sizes), and a little plastic clip to keep your wires gathered. They suggest charging them in full before use. A full charge from empty only takes about 1 ½ hours. There is a tiny red LED light showing it’s charging, and this light turns blue, when the earphones are fully charged. I love not having to guess; simple pleasures. The internal battery is an 85mAh battery. It may seem small, but for headphones, it’s not too shabby at all. You will actually get about 6 to 8 hours of play/talk time. The louder you play your music, the less battery time. The more you do on it, also cuts into battery time as well. If you have a week charger, it may take longer to charge. The ear buds are labeled R and L, on the ends. All of the controls, including the charging port are located on the right ear. On the side of the right ear, you will see their logo. This is actually the power/multipurpose button. Press and hold to turn on and pair. It will flash red/blue, and comes up Robintech to pair. It paired immediately with my Samsung Galaxy Note 5 phone. The sound quality is fantastic, and their CVC 6.0 Noise cancellation technology, coupled with how well thee ear buds sit in your ear, really work. My husband was trying to talk to me, while sitting right next to me, and I was clueless, lol. They have a really high water proof rating, IPX7, which means you can shower with them. Most headphones have an IPX6 rating, so this one has upped the game. My husband sweats like it’s raining when he’s working out, and working hard, lol. He has ruined many a headphone due to this. So, we shall see how long these last with him. These have the normal 10m/33ft distance from the Bluetooth deice, rating. That is same room. If you go behind a wall or door, it will drop the signal. Now, on top of the bar, on the R earphone, you will see a + and – buttons. You short press to lower, or heighten the volume, and long press to move forward or restart your song. You can also pair two devices at once, which is pretty cool. It does work with both Android and IOS systems. I only tested with Android, and these headphones worked flawlessly for me.

Here is a quick break down of some functions. They had it listed in their instruction pamphlet like this:

Ending a Call – Short press the MFB one time

Rejecting a Call – Short press the MFB for one second

Last Number Redial – Press the MFB twice

Cancel/End Dial in Practice – Short press the MFB one time

Music Pause/Play – Short Press the MFB one time

See, very basic, and easy to do.

The ear hook design is one of my favorites. My older son loves it as well. You can do handstands, and they stay put. My long hair knocks everything else out. Now, if you wear glasses, it makes this design a tweak harder. You have to put the earphones on first, and then your glasses. I was able to do this without issue. I love how they actually state the phone number when you call, so there is no guessing. That is important when you are driving. You never have to glance at your phone, even for a second. If you have to use your phone while you drive, due to work. Then having a solid pair of Bluetooth headphones is imperative. The calls came through loud and clear. The listener also heard what I was saying, or my husband, without issue. Overall, these are turning out to be a solid pair of headphones, and we are very happy with them.

Light up your home with Arui’s Solar Lights,Syhonic 2-in-1 Waterproof 4 LED Solar Spotlights.


We are big fans of solar lights. We use them all of the time. It’s a proven fact that a well-lit home has a lower chance of being robbed that a poorly lit home. And who doesn’t love a lower electricity bill! I know I do. I hate wasting money on an electricity bill. Solar panels, even these little ones, are so much better nowadays too. They really do provide enough power to light these lights. To top it off, these are LED lights. Another thing I love. LEDs are so much more durable and longer lasting, than regular bulbs. Combine these two things together, and really, how can you go wrong. The key to using lights like this, is to make sure you position the panels so they get full sun during the day. They can illuminate the night for up to 8 hours on a full charge on high. Each light has an internal 200mAh battery. They have a high and a low mode. High is 200 lumens, and low is 100 lumens. Both settings are pretty bright. Both the light and the solar panel are adjustable. You actually have to assemble the lights upon arrival. They did it that way to make the box smaller. Normally they aren’t too hard to assemble, but these need a little patience, and steady hands. You have to almost press the nut into the opening with a finger, while screwing in the screw cap with the other. It eventual catches enough to tighten up the light. But, once it’s done, it’s done, lol. No worries about inclement weather bothering these lights. They have an IP65 waterproof rating. They can handle anything but being submerged. These lights are great for illuminating the outside of your home, pathways, and landscaping. They are very easy to operate. Each light has an off/on button on the back of the solar panel. Press it once for the low setting, and twice for the high setting. They can either be staked into the ground, or mounted on a wall, fence or tree. They include mounting hardware and the stakes, too.  The stakes literally just push in, so they are very easy to do. The lights throw a pretty good beam too. It all depends on the angle you set the light. Each light has 4 LEDs in it. These are actually fully on lights, not motion activated lights. They will come on at dusk, and be off by morning. You can set them on low for a longer lasting light time frame, and then put them on high on nights you know you will be coming in late, or having company over. The lights are steady on and won’t flicker on you. Even on days with no sun, you’ll still get some charge; not enough to light up all night, but enough to come on at dusk. I am really happy with this set. I love being able to buy them as a set. One is never enough, or appear balanced, visually. With the two you can light up both sides of your driveway, pathway, or both back corners of your yard. Solar is really a great way to go for outdoor lighting.

So easy to decorate with. – HIKETOLIGHT’s LED Rice Light One Kit.


I love LED lighting. It is so much fun nowadays. There are so many different types too. This particular type is commonly known as fairy lights. They can be used year round too. I love, love, love that this unit comes with a AC power adapter. They are so easy to use this way. Since they also have an IP65 waterproof rating, they can even be used outside. Just make sure you waterproof your electrical outlet. That is on you, lol. These lights are so cool. They are made out of a metal wire, and the little lights are threading throughout the wire. The wire bends and conforms to the surface so easily. They stay put where you put them. I love wrapping them on a railing, it’s so pretty. The warm white lights are so pretty. These lights have 6 modes, but my favorite is steady on. You have different speeds of pulsing, and then flashing. The little LEDs are so bright, the flashing ones hurt my eyes, so solid on it is. You can wrap these around plants, across shelving, picture frames, wreaths, and more. You have approx. 33ft of wire to decorate with. The wire is a silver color, and looks pretty and decorative, even when off. This feature really makes decorating so much easier. You don’t have to worry so much about trying to disguise the wire. You can mold it into shapes, like a heart, star, box with a bow, because it is wire, and then hand the shape up on the wall. It is easy to do too. LED lighting, such as these, use so little energy too. Because the energy consumption is so low, and only needs 1A to run, you don’t have to think twice about using them daily. And since they do not get hot to the touch, you don’t have to worry if your kids or animals bump into them. They do not state the estimated lifespan of their LEDs, but my fairy lights that I already owned, have an estimated 25,000-hour lifespan. I do know LEDs last a long time. For example. I put a pair of solar fairy lights like these outside, about 6 months ago, and they are still coming on every night and stay lit throughout the night. My set from Hiketolight has been working wonderfully. I absolutely love my set.

Portable, solar lighting. – Vproof Direct’s Solar Light Portable Magnet Outdoor/ Indoor Rainproof Solar Lantern.


I am an LED nut, and a solar one too. You really can’t beat the combination either. LEDs are so durable and long lasting. I love how clear and bright their lights are too. I hate compact flourescents, and am so glad they are being used less and less. People treat them like a regular light bulb, when they are filled with a powder form of Mercury, which is so toxic. My older on broke one once in his room. What an extreme nightmare that was. Kids and animals can break LED lights in the home, without worry of any toxic fallout. So yea, I love LEDs!!!!!!!!!!!! I do have a collection. I am not to fond of the dark, and either is my youngest. It’s great to have a back of source of light when the lights go out do to a storm, or while traveling. This particular light is so cool. I love it. Not only is it waterproof, an LED, and solar powered, but is also has magnets on the back of it. It really holds too! And, to add icing to the cake, it also has a loop, so it can be hung and/or attach your own carabineer clip to it. That way you can clip it to your pack, solar panel out, so it charges throughout the day. This light is lightweight at 3.2oz and measures only 5” in diameter. It has 10 LEDs in it, and three modes: low, high, and a slow strobe/flash. That is the order how they come on as well. On low, which is still pretty bright, this light can go up to 8 hours on a full charge, and up to 5 on the other modes. I charged mine up through my window in the living room, so It’s so simple to do. On high, this light is 90 lumens, and can illuminate approx. 15sq. ft. of light. I have to admit, I didn’t measure the light area, lol. But, I can say, it really does illuminate a good area. It would definitely light up a tent, or the inside of a work trailer. It has a 3.7VDC Lithium Polymer Battery in it. There is only one button on the back of the light, in the middle of the solar panel. This operates the entire light; so simple. If you had to get out of your vehicle at night, in the dark, this light wood really be helpful. It would stick to the outside of the car, and give you hands free light, which is a great safety aid. I love that. You can have it charge by throwing it on your dash during the day, and then it can really serve as a great emergency light if you should need it, at night. I really can’t say enough about this light. It has so many useful attributes to it. It has quickly become one of my favorites.

Full protection for your mattress from Goodgram on Amazon.


I can’t even imagine not using a mattress protector on a mattress. We grew up using them, and we always use them now as well. It’s a great way to limit the dust and dead skin cells from gathering in your mattress. They really help prolong the life of your mattress’ as well. It’s really impossible to actually clean and disinfect a mattress through and through. Surface cleaning is what is really going on. Nowadays we have bed bugs, and creepy crawlies to contend with. The whole thought of that is beyond gross. This mattress protector can actually be your third layer of protection since it’s not padded. Your mattress fits inside of it, and zippers shut. It’s an encasement for your mattress. This particular mattress protector is from Goodgram’s. It’s made out of 100%polyester. I have problems with that fabric, so I would have to use a regular mattress protector over that. Since your mattress has to fit entirely inside of this product, I recommend it anyway. It’s not convenient to just take this off and wash it. You do not have to worry about shrinkage with this though because of what it is made out of. They call this a triple protection layer: waterproof, allergen resistant, and bed bug resistant. It is really waterproof too. I poured a ton of water on it, and it just on top of it like a puddle; too cool. There is minimal stitching overall on this unit, but what there is was done tight and on point. It has that faint, normal sent to a polyester fabric like this. Nothing strong or out of the ordinary. Overall, I find this mattress protector to be a solid form of protection for your mattress. They offer it in all sizes as well. The particular one that I tested, was in full size.
