Platypus Tea Infuser



These tea infusers are adorable. You get two when you order, a blue and a pink. The silicon piece that makes the belly of the platypus comes off so that you can fill it with tea leaves and clean it out. The platypus hangs on your cup while the tea steeps.
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. 


You can get your very own set of two platypus tea infusers at https://wwxw.amazon.com/dp/B01I77LO6Q

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

U-Zomir Painting Socks


This is a very unique set of socks from U-Zomir and any art lover will love and appreciate them. You get 5 pairs of socks and each pair has a different classic pieces of art on them:


Leonardo da Vinci - Mona Lisa


Vincent van Gogh - Starry Night


Edvard Munch - The Scream


Hokusai - The Great Wave off Kanagawa


Raphael Sanzio - The cherubim from "Sistine Madonna"


 

The socks are unisex and fit many sizes. They advertise to fit a men size 5-10 or women size 6-11. I wear a 7-7.5 and they do fit, but they are a bit tight on my ankles. They are made from stretch cotton and are still comfortable. The material actually reminds me of my dress socks and the socks aren't thick. 

 

These socks are very colorful and would make a great gift. They come already packaged nicely for giving as a gift. The insides do have lots of strings, but socks with a lot of colors normally do. All in all I really like these and would recommend them, especially if you have a kid that likes art. The price is great too. You can get a pair for $13.99 here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01L55UEEK

AYL Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker


I love this AYL bluetooth speaker. I have been looking for one and have bought quite a few that broke after the first week. This one is great for working out in the yard, swimming at the pool/river, or even in the shower. The sound is very clear, gets very loud, and has great bass for a small speaker.


It was simple to connect my phone and stream Pandora and Spotify through my phone. When the battery starts to get drained or when my phone gets too far away are the only times there was any distortion or interference. I love that I can charge the speakers on any USB device and I can even play my music through the speaker with the AUX port if I don't want to use the Bluetooth. All of the wires that you need are included, which you are seeing less and less often these days.


The speaker isn't overly complicated. Once connected to the phone you pretty much control everything from there. There are buttons to adjust volume and song selection. The speaker itself is small enough that you can easily put it in a tote and take it to the beach or a gathering, but large enough to emit a great sound. It isn't as tinny as other speakers and has great bass. *You may need to play with the equalizer on your device to find the perfect setting for the speakers.

I also love that the speaker floats if you accidentally drop it in water and that you can screw it into a mount to use on your bike!

I would definitely recommend this purchase for anyone who enjoys listening to music, especially in outdoor settings. It would make a great gift as well. You can get yours here: http://amzn.to/2c1TeYY

Finnhomy Portable Metal Folding Table


It's the first day of Autumn here in the South, but our hot, sunny weather is far from over. There are still a few months of nice, hot days to spend on the porch and this delightful little portable side table from Finnhomy has been a welcome addition.


I love the bright red color and the round table is very sturdy. It is a metal table and when not in use, it folds up for easy storage. It makes a perfect table for sipping sweet tea or holding a potted plant.


The table is about 24.5" tall and has an 18" diameter. You can choose between red, black, white, and mint green. You can even bring it indoors for use as a bedside table or to spruce up a corner. In addition you can remove the top and use it as a serving tray. How neat is that!?


The table is available for $27.99 here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01HX9TLQY/

Isalena Star Bracelet


This star Isalena bracelet is so cute and delicate. I love the moving stars and it goes with every outfit, from casual to formal. It is appropriate for many ages too.


The bracelet is ~7" long so it will fit very small wrists, but it also has an extender chain. It is sterling silver with movable star beads and fixed round beads on a box chain. 


Although this bracelet comes from an overseas seller, it still arrived within 2 weeks. The sellers are very nice and cooperative, offering wonderful customer service.


It is so dainty that I forget I'm wearing it, but I love looking down and seeing the beautiful bracelet on my wrist. I actually got this as a gift for someone so I'm hoping they love wearing it as much as I did to review it.

Phytopia Tranquility Oil


I am all about essential oils and their medicinal properties, especially the aromas. I am a firm believer that they work and if you use them properly they are perfectly healthy. Any product you use on your skin should undergo a patch test so that you can make sure your skin won't react. 


This Tranquility essential oil from Phytopia is meant to be rubbed on your skin. You shouldn't ingest it or use it in a diffuser. It is to help you relieve stress caused by everyday life. It is perfect to rub on your shoulders while you're relaxing or getting in bed for the night. You can use it multiple times per day if needed.


The bottle is 50mL so there's enough for a month or more of daily use depending on how much you use at one time and how often. The smell is very sweet at first and then over time starts to smell powder fresh. The ingredients are organic and you get hints of citrus, geranium, vanilla, and rose.


After using this every day for a few weeks I can honestly say I sleep better when I put it on before bed and it does help me to relax after a stressful day. It's a great gift for your loved ones, especially those who use essential oils. 

This Tranquillity oil is available for $33.95 here: http://www.amztk.com/synergy-for-stress-relief

US Art Supply 100 Gel Pens


I love to color and I also love products from US Art Supply. I jumped on the adult coloring bandwagon really quick and have always loved collecting art supplies. I was so excited to try these gel pens because this is a very large set. Believe it or not I haven't use a gel pen since middle school. I didn't remember how awesome they were until I got these.

The ink glides on smooth and is perfect for all sorts of different mediums and papers. I love using them in my adult coloring books because the small tip will allow you to get into the tiny crevices without bleeding into other areas. 


You get 100 beautiful colors divided into classic, metallic, pastel, swirl, glitter, neon, and dye. I did notice that some of the pens would get clogged and you have to scribble on another sheet of paper to get it flowing again. This seemed to happy mostly with blue inks.

The pens come in individual plastic holders that are all contained in one larger carrying case. I will be putting them into a roll up canvas so they are easier to get to, though.


The price is excellent and competitive. Gel pens lose ink fast so buying another set when these get low won't break my wallet. The ink dries quickly on the paper so that you don't smear it and make a huge mess.

The colors are very vibrant and I can't believe I ever went so long without having gel pens as an adult. I highly recommend this product and will definitely be buying it again.

Techef Non-stick Wok

This wok is so huge, I love it! It's a 11 inch wok with a glass lid and the wok is non-stick.


I cook a lot of stir fry and I've never been able to make it in a wok before. It was so delicious and easy with this pan. It evenly distributed the heat and I didn't have a single thing stick to the bottom.


You can use this for more than just noodles and stirfry too. It cooks chicken wonderfully and other reviewers have even used it for casseroles.

I have another Techef pan and I love them both. You can tell they put a lot of work into making sure their products are quality items. They also have a wonderful customer service team.

I love the look of the pan and that it has two small handles instead of a single long one. It makes it easier to handle and move around. Chefs and home cooks of all skill levels will get a lot of use out of this wok.

The Techef wok can be purchased here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01I3V173Q/
