Pinnacle Leakproof Insulated Lunch Kit


I really like this Pinnacle lunch kit and I love the little containers that come it. You get two plastic containers that are a good size. One is lined with BPA free plastic (microwave safe) and the other is lined with stainless steel (not microwave safe).


The containers do a good job at keeping your foods warm for up to 4 hours or cold for 6, especially if you take the time to prep them ahead of time following the directions. Also, filling up the containers as much as possible works best.


The set comes on many vibrant colors. You also get an insulated thermos and a silverware set. The thermos can be used for beverages or soup and the carrying case has an adjustable strap and a handle. Everything fits inside the soft case perfectly. 


This would be a great set for kids to take their lunch to school. It may be a bit small for many adults, but it's great for my fruit/veggie snacks. They help with portion control so that you eat healthier. 


This set is not dishwasher safe, so be aware of that. It's available for $29.50 at https://www.amazon.com/Pinnacle-Insulated-Leakproof-Container-Matching/dp/B01J2FP51W?ie=UTF8&*Version*=1&*entries*=0

TSWA Instant Pop-Up Tent

It is almost fall, which means that it is finally cooling off enough to go camping for many of you. Those of you who aren't as sensitive to the heat and who have been camping all summer will also appreciate this item.

Pop Up Camping Tent by TSWA , Automatic & Instant Setup Dome Waterproof Backpacking Tents for 3-4 Person Portable Hiking Pack Shelters

This TSWA  Instant Pop-Up is a great little tent for one ton camping or going to the beach to get out of the sun. It's also good for having when you have kids who like to camp in the backyard. Also, for camping trips where you don't have to walk very far from your vehicle also.

This tent will sleep 3 children or 2 adults comfortably. If you know the third adult really well and don't mind snuggling it will fit 3. It is super easy to pop up and, unlike other pop up items I've tried in the past, is super easy to fold back up. We had two people folding it back, so it may be a little tougher for a single person to do.

What I really like about the tent is that it has two doors and both have mesh screens on them, so you can have a breeze going through your tent during the day. The top is also mesh to give you lots of natural light, but it does come with a topper if you run into some rain.

The material is lightweight and the zippers are alright. They didn't snag and were easy to slide open and closed. There are ties to hold the doors open when you roll them up. There is also a pocket inside for small items like glasses and there is a hook inside to hang a lantern.

I'm really going to enjoy this tent on short camping trips with friends when we park about 1/2 a mile away then walk to the camp site. The bag has straps so you can carry it like a backpack and while other people are struggling to put their pole tents together, I'll be relaxing in the hammock!

It also comes with some little stakes to keep the tent taut and discourage the wind from stealing it. They are not the best quality, but will get the job done. If you find yourself using this a lot it may be a good it's to get some heavier duty ones. 

I wouldn't recommend this to serious hikers and backpackers only because you can't roll it up and fit it in your pack and it is a little heavier than most backpacking tents when every pound counts. When you fold it and put it in the bag it is still a large item and that isn't what your looking for when you go backpacking.

Word of Dream Duvet Cover and Shams

Who doesn't love getting ready to turn in and crawling into a comfortable, nicely made bed? I know I do. Well, with this Word of Dream Duvet Cover set, you can not only have an inviting looking bed, but a stylish one also!

Word of Dream 100% Cotton Ultra Soft Geometric Print Duvet Cover Sets 3PC, Plaid Pattern, Full/Queen

This is a beautiful duvet cover and pillow sham set. At first, I honestly thought that the pattern was a little too bold for the room I was going to use it on, but after stuffing it with the duvet and making the bed, I quickly fell in love. It matches the colors of the wall wonderfully and brings out the colors in the lamps. We have a full size bed and this full/queen size fits perfectly. It was easy to slip over the duvet as well.

The cover and shams are really well made and I like that the duvet cover zips up instead of having buttons. We have one with buttons and they have all fallen off. Once this one is stuffed you don't have to fight with it to keep it looking nice because there are little ties inside to keep the duvet in place.

I love the different plaid patterns too. The top is more aqua and salmon while the underside is pink and grey. The two patterns go well together.

The cotton is very soft and the material is thick enough to hold up over time. Also, the shams open from the edge instead of the middle, so the pillows actually stay inside and don't slip out every time you move the pillows. I think the colors go great with the antique bed and I'm so in love with the overall look. 

Word of Dream 100% Cotton Ultra Soft Geometric Print Duvet Cover Sets 3PC, Plaid Pattern, Full/Queen

A great thing about the set is that it's machine washable! That is a great feature because we have dogs that like to snuggle in the bed and don't have the heart to kick them out.

This is a wonderful set and I'm sure you're going to love it as much as we do!

This set is $43.99 and available here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01D2FAW0C

Whistling Kettle Tea of the Month Club

 
This is the second sampler set that I have tried from The Whistling Kettle and they are quickly becoming one of my favorites. Their teas are so flavorful and delicious.  I have no idea how they pack so much flavor and goodness into one cup of tea, but I'm sure glad they do.

The Whistling Kettle has tons of different subscription tea boxes. They work just like any other subscription box. You get a shipment every month and each one has a different tea. You can get all oolong, green tea, breakfast tea, flavored tea, chai, or even all decaf.  There are so many to choose from your hardest decision will be picking which one. They even have a subscription for just that called the Discovery Tea Club where you get a surprise tea each month!

Each tea club comes with its own benefits and perks. You get 2-4 ounces of tea and they range from $12-$27 depending on which you pick.

The Whistling Kettle sent me a box of 8 of their signature teas, all of which are included in their subscription boxes. I got to try: 


Golden Starfruit - this ones smells ah-may-zing!  It has starfruit, papaya, and mango with orange peel and it makes your taste buds happy!


Banana Dulce - I swear this one smells like banana moon pie. It has banana, coconut, and graham cracker aromas.


Snowflake - this is a black tea with almond, coconut, and cinnamon. It's nutty and sweet. 


Lemon SoufflĂ© Honeybush - this tea is lemon, cream, honeybush, and roobios. It's really smooth with a tartness that will make you grin. 


East Frisian Broken Blend  - this is a breakfast tea to perk you up with a malty flavor. It has Java and Sumatra roundness. 


Scottish Caramel Toffee pu-erh - this one is all caramel flavor with a very sweet aftertaste.


Endurance - this tea is meant to increase your stamina and has a bit of a spicy sweetness.


Vanilla Silk Oolong - this tea was delicious and it was magic watching the leaves open up in the press. This tea smells like a citrus cream that reminded me of a dream pop. 

The best part about the subscription boxes is that when you find a tea you love, you can buy a larger size directly from the company! I'm going to need a bigger tea cabinet!!!

So when you're ready to start your tea adventure with The Whistling Kettle go check out their website at http://www.thewhistlingkettle.com/tea-of-the-month-club.html

You won't regret it! What's your favorite tea flavor? Tell me in the comments below!

Glitzs Claddagh Rings


If you're a girl and don't like jewelry...you're lying. I'm totally kidding. I know there are girls out there that don't wear jewelry, but most of us do and we adore getting it as gifts.


I have Scot/Irish heritage so the claddagh ring is a little special to me. The claddagh design symbolic and consists of is two hands (friendship) clasping a heart (love), which has a crown (loyalty) on top of it. It is typically worn to hint at the relationship status of the wearer. If worn on the right hand with the heart pointing outward or "open" then they are single. If it is worn on the right hand with the heart pointing inward then the person is in a relationship. If worn on the left hand with the ring pointing outward then the person is engaged and if the heart is pointing inward they are married. It's a beautiful and popular tradition, even in the USA.


I actually got to try out two of these claddagh rings from Glitz, so I am combining the review for both of them so I won't repeat anything. The only things that differ between the two rings are the stones and size. 


Both rings are beautiful and are very comfortable to wear. After wearing them a full day there was no discoloration or irritation to my sensitive skin. 


The first ring is made from sterling silver and is a size 7. It has a large cubic zirconia between the hands and a small one in the crown. The stones are stunning when the light hits them and the silver shines beautifully. 


The second ring is also made from sterling silver but it is a size 6. It has a lab created opal between the hands and a small cubic zirconia in the crown. You won't believe how beautiful the opal is when the light hits it!



As I have two of these now, I will be giving one to my sister. I would buy this for any of my female friends. If you like these rings you can follow the links below:

Naturalico Shiatsu Massager



If you have seen my profile then you're aware both of my parents have had neck surgery and that I'm always buying them products that will help ease their discomfort. This massager was one of those ventures and I'm lucky that I even got to try it enough to write this because they have stolen it!


This Naturalico Massager uses kneading shiatsu pressure by utilizing four rotating pieces. It feels amazing and you'll feel your muscles loosening up and your troubles melting away in no time.


The massager can be plugged into a wall to be used in your favorite recliner or it can be plugged into your cars power port. I wouldn't recommend using it while driving, but your passenger can definitely get a massage.


Operation of the massager is simple enough. You place the large part behind your back and then slip your arms through the straps to put as much pressure on your neck as you need. The power/operation buttons on are left side and you can choose either just a massage or a heated massage.


You can play around with the massager and use it on different parts of your body. Place it on your lower back or even your feet if you aren't ticklish.

I have no criticisms or qualms with this product, however some people may find it bulky. Neither me nor my parents found this to be true. This massager is quality stuff and not something this is going to break on you after a month. 

You can get this awesome massager on sale for $59.95 by following this link: http://amzn.to/2aiCAVt
