AÏKIOU HEXA Dog Slow Feeder Bowl


<a href="https://www.tomoson.com?code=TOPc21c76854c4fb5b5499e5883e77cfb5c" rel="nofollow" style="display: none;"></a>

So, I told you yesterday that we have been watching two of our friend’s dogs while he finds a pet friendly place. One of those dogs is named Brutus. He’s an old Boxer and he eats so fast we aren’t even sure that he chews. He then promptly throws up all of his food because of this. After too many months of having to watch him while eating and let him outside as soon as he is finished, I decided to review a slow feeder bowl and it has helped so much!

AÏKIOU HEXA Dog Slow Feeder Bowl. Interactive Stops Bloat. For Small & Large Healthy Dogs
 

The AÏKIOU HEXA slow feeder bowl is a great size for any size dog from 5 to 90 pounds. It has a maze pattern inside that makes eating more fun and interesting for the pup and slows down their munching. This helps to reduce bloat and aids in digestion and other issues, like throwing up. Because your dog eats slower, the will probably also eat less which helps with weight problems.

As a bonus, the maze design also helps messy eaters keep the food inside the bowl!

The hexagonal bowl is made with food safe plastic that is free of BPA and BHT. You can wash it in the top rack of your dishwasher as well. The plastic is very sturdy and thick, so if you have a pup that likes to chew on their bowl, it will hold up.

Pet Magasin - Various Pet Products


Happy Hump Day, everyone! I know most of you are pet lovers, as am I, but if you aren’t friends with me on my social accounts you may not be aware that I sadly had to leave my beloved Mollie Moomers with my parents after deciding to move to Colorado. After a few months of getting adjusted, there was a huge dog sized hole in my heart and I decided to rescue a puppy whose litter was found on the reservation in the next town over. So that is how Brecken came into my life and he’s been a member of my family ever since and…my new pet product tester! We are currently watching two dogs of a friend while he finds a place that allows pets, so one of his pups, Roo, helped me on this one too. So here are Brecken (left) and Roo (right):

Pet Magasin was nice enough to send me, Breckle-Freckle, and Roo a few of their products. They sent me a set of three brushes, a nail clipper, and a leash with poop bag dispenser. I was very surprised and pleased at the quality of the items. The handles are thick and have a soft leather on them and everything feels durable in the hand.

Brecken has short hair, so the only brush that works for him is the double sided one. After getting a much needed bath and giving him time to dry, I used the dual bush on him and it got most of the loose hairs off. Breck really seemed to enjoy the massage of the wire bristles. He DID think the brush was a toy, actually he thinks everything is a toy, so getting photos of us using the brush on him was pretty impossible.

Brecken is more interested in eating the brush than getting brushed
 

They also included a de-shedding brush and a matt de-tangler. Roo has long magical locks that get matted up pretty often. The de-shedding brush worked wonders on her undercoat and the matt de-tangler got some stubborn clumps out of her tail without pain and without me having to cut them out like I normally do.

Breck has always been pretty good about letting me cut his nails, and he’s so active that I don’t have to do it very often. Of course it’s always hard to get him to sit still because he thinks it’s a game. Because he’s constantly moving I’m glad that they have a safety guard so that I don’t cut his nails too short. There is also a built in nail file so you can make sure there are no sharp edges after cutting. I do wish that the blades were a little sharper though, but they did work and didn’t seem to hurt him.

The final product is a very nice retractable dog leash and poop bag dispenser. The least is meant for dogs under 44 pounds (all of the dogs in my house are over 60 pounds) and the package with the dog leash just came in the mail just yesterday, so I wasn’t able to find a dog to take walking to try it out. However, it does seem like a solid leash and much better quality than a similar one I had for Brecken when he was a puppy. The poop bag dispenser is pretty nifty, too. The top pops up easily and there is a rubber stopper to keep the bags from coming unraveled. It attaches to a belt, purse, backpack or even to the leash.

Glasstic Shatterproof Water Bottle

Happy Sunday, everyone! I have a nifty product to show you today, especially those of you who love outdoor adventures or just want to stay hydrated. Introducing Glasstic! Glasstic is a shatterproof water bottle that is...you guessed it...part glass and part plastic. 


I LOVE this water bottle. I prefer glass water bottles for the taste, but I've had quite a few and most of them shatter the first or second time you drop them. This bottle is completely different from other glass water bottles I’ve had in the past. And most places that don’t allow your glass water bottles will let you have your Glasstic since it’s shatterproof and is plastic on the outside. 


The outside layer is plastic and there's an inner glass layer that holds your beverage. You never get a plastic after taste because your water never touches anything but the glass. Since both ends open, the water bottle is easy to clean and the duel layers also act as insulation. 


It has an open mouth instead of a straw or pop up top, so I personally think it’s more hygienic. The bottle's mouth is just the right size and comfortable to drink out of. The lid flips all the way back so it's lying against the side of the bottle completly out of your way. There is also a little lock on the front of the lid to keep it from popping open when you’re carrying it in a bag or it’s being jostled by hiking, biking, etc. 




There are tons of colors and styles to choose from and you don’t even need multiple bottles to change it up. Simply draw something, put some photos or stickers in the space between the glass tube and outer shell, or order some specially made inserts from the website!




This would make a great gift or stocking stuffer for your active friends and family. Head over to http://www.glassticwaterbottle.com to read up on the company and products! They start at just $11.99!

INNX Pet Cargo Liner

Anyone who owns a fur baby knows the struggle of trying to decide if you want to take your beloved pet with you in the car and then having the hassle of continuously vacuuming out your seats. I just got a new car in April of this year and the first time we took my dog hiking I almost had a heart attack when I saw all the hair and mud that was left behind. This is a product for all of you who have had similar experiences. This is what my car looked like before installing the cargo liner:



Scary, right? Mud and fur everywhere! And since we take my dog everywhere we go, I gave up on trying to vacuum the fur out every day. That’s why I love this cargo liner.
The INNX Pet Cargo Liner is a wonderful item for all of us who want to take our pets on adventures and car rides. It is quick to install and is made from a heavy duty water resistant material to protect your upholstery from pet hair, muddy paws, and sharp claws.  My dog, Brecken, just LOVES to play in the river so he was the perfect tester helper and he thinks this cargo liner is just GRRRRRReat!

Not only does it keep my car clean, but it also helps to keep my pup in the back seat where he is less likely to get into trouble chewing things he shouldn’t. I decided to keep the bars up for now just to make sure he doesn’t jump into the front seat.
The cargo liner measures 52 inches long, 41 inches wide, and almost 18 inches in height; so it will fit most SUVs whether they are compact, small, or large. The side flap adjustments and Velcro locations make this a great product for many vehicle models. There’s also Velcro on the bottom to keep it from sliding around.
have a 2017 Chevy Trax which is a subcompact, so the liner wasn’t an exact fit, especially since my “cargo” area includes having the seats down so that my dog has plenty of room. However, I was still able to make the liner fit. Just be sure to measure your cargo space before you purchase so you won’t run into any hiccups while installing.
There is even a pocket to keep leashes and halters, toys, or grooming supplies. Just make sure they can’t smell the treats or your pup will drive you crazy.
And did I mention it’s easy to clean? The water resistant material makes cleanup a breeze. Simply use a brush or damp cloth.
Brecken and Roo give it 4 paws up!
The INNX Pet Cargo Liner is very well made and I know it will last for many adventures to come. If you’d like to try it out for yourself just head over to http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01FR0STOG where you can get one for only @29.96!

Le Gusto Heavy Duty Kitchen Scissors

I absolutely love to cook and after moving out on my own, I found a need for better kitchen utensils. For so long I have been using a pair of office scissors in the kitchen and they were just not getting the job down. I needed a tool that could help me cook, not just something to cut open plastic food packages with. And now, thanks to Le Gusto, I have a pair of quality kitchen scissors!

Professional Kitchen Scissors and Poultry Shears by Le Gusto - Heavy Duty Kitchen Shears – Multi Purpose Cooking Tool for Chicken, Meat and Fish - eBook Included

I am so glad I got to review these kitchen scissors, especially with all of the cooking that Thanksgiving and Christmas is about to require of me.



These scissors are sharp and can effortlessly cut through meat and even bone.  They have a serrated edge so that you don’t have to worry about losing your grip on slippery meats and are going to be such a huge help for the holidays.

And as a bonus they can even help open your favorite holiday beverage!

I really like the fact that the scissors come with a protective case. If we need to bring them with us and wind up throwing them in a bag, I don’t have to worry about puncturing packages or making a hole in the bag. The last thing I want when carrying all of my food to the car is the bag to rip and all my carefully prepared foods spilled onto the driveway.

Not only are these scissors strong enough to tackle the heavy duty jobs in the kitchen but they can also be used for more delicate tasks like cutting herbs. Since moving to Colorado I don’t have the long growing season I once did in Alabama for herbs and veggies, but I still like to buy fresh basil for pasta nights and being able to easily snip and cut makes the cooking go much faster.

Once you open your own pair, you’re going to immediately notice the quality of these scissors. They have a nice weight to them, are made of stainless steel so they won’t corrode or rust, and they are even dishwasher safe if you choose (although the company really recommends hand washing and drying after use to improve longevity). They feel great in the hand and are easy to use.

These kitchen shears by Le Gusto are available for only $11.95 and you can pick up a pair of your own here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N6DYYRL

There’s even a 100% risk-free satisfaction guarantee and they make great gifts for anyone who loves to cook. Now the only worry I have for Thanksgiving dinner is how I'm going to eat it all!

Lemome Dot Matrix Journal


Hello all! Long time no see! I can't believe I haven't posted anything in over a year. I've had a ton of changes this past year and my product reviews got moved down the priority list, especially with the changes to Amazon's rules on reviewing products and finally getting a full time job - yay!. But, I'm back...well, sort of. I'm slowly starting to do product reviews again, but they are going to be few and far between.  
But enough about me, let's check out a product I purchased for my newest obsession: bullet journaling!
 
This is a nifty little journal from Lemome and I'm pretty much in love with it. I chose to buy the black journal with yellow embellishments, but they have a few other variations:
Photo courtesy of Lemome
 
I recently started a bullet journal (thank you, Pinterest) and this is the first dot matrix journal I have ever used. I am really enjoying it so far and it is the perfect size to fit in my purse.

If you've never heard of a bullet journal, it is basically an analog planner. Unlike an app or one of those pre-made planners we use for about a week and then give up on, a bullet journal is customizable and no pages are wasted. You can add whatever you like and it is perfect for anyone who likes to write, draw, or just wants to organize their life and thoughts.
You can read more about bullet journaling and learn how to get started HERE! 

Alright, let's get back to the review. The journal is 8.25" x 5.75" and has a soft faux leather cover. It includes a pen with black ink, a small ruler (super handy), stick on tabs, emoji stickers, and a few temporary tattoos. 
 
I do wish that the paper was a little thicker. There is a bit of ghosting through the page, especially if you go over something more than once. This happens with the included pen as well as my gel pens. Being my first dot matrix journal I am not sure if this is normal or a result of the paper quality, but I tend to fill the pages with doodles so it hides it a bit.
 
The paper is a creamy color and easy on the eyes. It is very smooth so pens glide over the pages beautifully. I haven’t noticed any ink spreading from my writing and once the ink is dry it doesn’t smudge, even when I use an eraser over it.
 

I believe this is a quality product, especially for the price (on sale for #12.97). It would be great for people looking to begin a bullet journal, or for people who just like the dot matrix pages. I’m sure I will try out other journals in the future (just because I’m curious as to the more expensive ones), but this one was definitely a good buy. If you'd like to get your own, you can get one HERE!

The platypuses are so cute and will make you smile while you're making your favorite cup of tea. They are also microwave and dishwasher safe. The silicone is also BPA free and won't change the taste of your tea.

Easy@Home Digital Ear Thermometer


This Easy@Home digital ear thermometer is so quick and easy. If you have kids at home your days of fighting them to take their temperature is over. You can get a more accurate temperature in the ear than in the armpit, mouth, or rectum. 


Taking the temperature in the ear reflects your body's core temperature and changes in body temperature are seen earlier in the ear than in other parts. The thermometer comes with a chart showing normal body temperature ranges for different ages so you know when it's time to visit a doctor. 


The thermometer is very easy to use. You insert it into your ear after putting on a probe cover, press the test button, and wait for the beep. It only takes about a second. The temperature is displayed on the LED screen and you can even set the time/date and change from °C to °F. There is even a smiley or frowny face in response to your temperature. You can also set temperatures to memory so that you can track an illness.


The screen automatically goes dark after inactivity and the thermometer turns itself off to preserve the battery. It is powered by two AAA batteries which are included. 15 probe covers and a manual is also included.


This is a great product for people who have trouble reading a thermometer or who have children who don't like to have their temperature taken. You can get one here: https://www.amazon.com/Easy-Home-Infrared-Thermometer-Temperature/dp/B0197BC8Z2/ref=sr_1_45_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1472506522&sr=8-45&keywords=thermometer
