ELUTO E11 Safety Certified 7-34″ Adjustable Airplane Seat Belt Extender

Years ago, when I was much heavier, I flew from New York to Idaho with a dear friend and mentor. I was terribly embarrassed when I barely fit into the seat. The armrests dug into my side, and there was no extender available for whatever reason. Mortifying! It only got worse as the man sitting in front of me put his seat all the way down and napped. I had no room to move whatsoever for the entire flight.

That was such a terrible experience that I do not want it repeated for myself or anyone I know. I saw this product and figured that buying this Eluto Seatbelt Extender was a small price to pay to have a better traveling experience– guaranteed.

This seatbelt extension impressed me when it arrived. It is quality material and durable. The buckle is 45# steel, and the belt is a high-strength polyester webbing. It is E11 safety certified, so I know that it will not fail, but will perform just as well as the given airline belt.

LIGHTSTORY LED Candelabra Bulb CA11 6W, LED Chandelier Bulb 60W Equivalent, E12 Base LED Bulb, 2700K, Dimmable LED Lights, UL Listed(6 Pack)

These energy-saving lightbulbs are estimated to save hundreds of dollars over the lifetime of each bulb. The lights are 6 watts or equivalent to a 60-watt bulb. I bought these for a chandelier in my living room. They look quite beautiful in there. The light is adequate. The bulbs cast a warm glow, rather than a harsher or more sterile bright white that some others possess.

I like that the LIGHTSTORY LED Candelabra Bulbs are eco-friendly. I am even writing this on Earth Day! They contain no mercury, no UV, and are UL listed. The lights are retro- Edison type bulbs, which works great in my space.

If you are interested in these bulbs, you can get them on Amazon here.

LESVIEO 600Mbps USB Adapter

 

The Lesvieo 600Mbps USB WI-FI Adapter adds wi-fi capability to a device that does not already have it, extends wi-fi, or replaces a non-working connection. The package includes the adapter that you screw together, the CD with the driver/ manual, and the printed manual booklet.

The dual channel aspect is important as it supports both 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz. As most devices operate on 2.4 GHz, the band is saturated with traffic. Being able to access 5.8 GHz will result in a better connection and faster downloads. It is like traveling the high-occupancy travel lane or priority lane on a highway in the data sense.

You do need the capability of 802.11AC, which is the latest wi-fi technology to get the most of the adapter as far as range and speed. Lesser equipment will mean you can use this adapter still, but the performance will be commensurate with the capacity change.

My use of this dongle has been to extend the range of my wi-fi in my house and outside the house, where I sometimes like to work to get some fresh air and the sun. It is “plug and play” with Windows 10, which is what I use. I screw the two pieces together (it has a multi-angle rotation) and attach it to my laptop. That is it. Now my connection is good outdoors when it was spotty at best beforehand.

The wi-fi adapter has an 18-month warranty, so there is no risk. It also comes with lifetime technical support.

EnacFire Bluetooth Headset

Bluetooth Earbud, EnacFire Wireless V4.1 Mini Bluetooth Car Headset with 2 x Magnetic USB Chargers and 6 Hour Playtime Mini Bluetooth Headphone with Mic for iPhone and Android Devices (One Piece) (Wireless Phone Accessory)

This EnacFire Wireless Mini Bluetooth Earbud arrived in a sturdy box that is suitable for gift giving. It is surprisingly classy. The presentation has a quiet “wow” factor.

The contents include the earbud itself, not one but two magnetic chargers, ear bud tips, instruction manual, and a warranty card. All of this is packed in hollowed out foam for complete protection during shipment and storage in between uses.

I wanted to try the earbud out right away, so I plugged it into a USB charger so that it would have decent power to check it out thoroughly. Hours later I paired it with my tablet. It was as simple as turning Bluetooth on my Fire and pairing a new device. The earpiece showed up immediately. I selected it and voilà! Done.

I have tested it on phone conversations, in games, videos, and while listening to my music. It performed flawlessly in all applications. When I pushed the volume up to 100%, there was just a bit of distortion, but that was not a volume I would customarily use, so that is no issue to me. Phone calls are terrific. I have listened to music at times when it is important to hear surrounding sounds like a knock at the door, a phone, timer, or when my daughter is in a particularly chatty mood.

Comfort is critical, and this is a good fit for me. While some headphones and earbuds have a “pinch” here or there or some area of discomfort, this Enacfire Bluetooth device feels excellent. When I finish using it, I often delay taking it out of the ear, because it’s easy to forget I still am wearing it. I love it and highly recommend it.

Owen Kyne Windproof Double-Layer Folding Inverted Umbrella with C-Shaped Handle

Never Going Back To My “Ex”

Umbrellas have been around for 3,000 years or so. Why did it take until the 2,000’s for it to see “inside out” technology? The old standard design nearly guaranteed the user and the floor would get wet when closing it after use. There would be the puddle of water in your car where you set it down. It was hardly the best way to stay dry or keep things dry.

I heard about the inverse umbrella and was game to try one out. My daughter and I selected the A-Carmine style, but we had a tough time deciding, as we liked most of the fourteen options in the

Owen Kyne collection. The color and pattern of the one we chose are strikingly beautiful. Rain falls on everyone alike, but I catch myself smiling when I reach for this rain protection. It looks fantastic and functions perfectly. Old umbrella, you had ONE job! I am never going back to my “ex.”

The design is fantastic. The c-shaped handle allows you to hang it on your arm or elsewhere to store or dry off. One of my favorite things is that I will suffer no more pinches while opening or closing my umbrella. Those can hurt. It has happened more times than I care to estimate. There is a button to (gently) fold it up.

We have used it many times since it arrived, but the first time we needed it was the most telling about the durability and quality. Our area had a freak storm. It had been unseasonably warm but then got cold pretty rapidly. Torrential rain turned into hail. The winds were astounding. Sturdy trees blew over randomly. Power lines were down including ours early into the proceedings. People were dodging the lines and the trees in the roads in town.

Since the power was out, I walked next door to check on my in-laws using the new umbrella. I nearly decided against using it, as it would be a shame if the winds proved too much for it. It survived the trip there and back, and I did not get the least bit wet. I have had conventional umbrellas whose spokes snapped in lesser winds where I used to live in Upstate New York. This one is a keeper!

You’re Purrfect Fur Me | Premium 11oz Coffee Cup

It Makes My Day!

This cup is adorable! I received it before Valentine’s Day, and it made the day more enjoyable no matter my relationship status. I like the message. There is no perfect person, but there can be someone who is perfect for you, nevertheless.

The mug is dishwasher and microwave safe. The cup is durable ceramic. I measured; it holds eleven ounces of your favorite beverage. I like white cups for coffee or tea, as the light color makes it easier to tell that my coffee will be to my liking. 🙂

I would buy the “Purrfect Fur Me” mug again for certain.71rUQsQ6rRL._SL1500_

“My Neighbor Totoro” Socks

~ Comfortable, stylish fun! ~

 

These socks are incredibly adorable! I bought them for my daughter who is a Studio Ghibli fan. The character is Totoro from “My Neighbor Totoro” fame [US movie title].

This set of three pairs of socks has blue, gray, and pink colors included.

She and I wear the same size, so I tried them out, too. The pairs are quality-made, though thin socks. These are perfect for warmer weather. I think the area of the ears at the top of the sock is excellent. The tops are not at all binding on the calf, which is a great relief to me. I have diabetes and the problems associated with it.

My daughter likes that they are fan-related and that they show her style and personality. That is a win in my book.

A tip from the company states that the socks should be washed inside out in cold water for the best results, so I have done that hoping that the socks will last a good long while. So far I have no complaints about durability. There has been no degradation that I have noticed with these from regular wear, washing, and drying.

Oskri Almond Cranberry Dark Chocolate Protein Bars – 55g – 5 Pack

81mlrgxlb2l-_sx425_

 

SIMPLY DELICIOUS!

These Almond Cranberry Dark Chocolate Protein Bars are among my family’s top three bars ever. This ranking says a lot, as we have a bar of some sort and coffee at least once a day. That is a lot of bars over the years! I appreciate that these are made in Wisconsin right here in the US.

This box has a five-count supply of healthier protein snacks which are coated with delicious dark chocolate, which is just slightly bitter. Inside there are dates, raisins, and rice syrup, but the taste is more like a nougat. It reminds me of a healthier version of a Milky Way with almonds and cranberries and dark chocolate. The texture is amazing. My daughter and I love varied textures, and this one is loaded with them. The taste pairs so well with coffee that I love my morning ritual particularly when I get to have this variety.

The protein is ample, with 16g, and the fiber content is 4g in these 55g beauties. The carb content is 25g, which is considerable. I feel good about this bar nonetheless, as it is packed with real food and quality ingredients. This is clean eating at its finest. There are companies out there that make many health claims about their products, but later the truth comes out about them. Then some products you try and the taste is something akin to tree bark. These gluten-free bars taste better than most candy bars! I highly recommend them.

3D Sleep Masks, Alistart Contoured Shape Eye Mask

 

This package has two Alistart Contoured 3D Shape Eye Masks included. Having a pair makes it very convenient for couples or if you want to give one as a gift. The elastic strap is highly customizable with velcro offering your best fit around the circumference of your head. These feature something they call advanced 3D technology. In truth, this development is way more comfortable than the older style I have owned. Contoured so that your eyes and lashes have room, there is no feeling of being cramped. You can even nap while wearing eye makeup and it will remain entirely undisturbed. How perfect for traveling!

These masks are best when washed by hand or put into a garment bag to keep them from damage and to keep their unique shape.All in all, the comfort is a big selling point all the way around. The mask material feels luxurious and sleek.The only detraction for me is that some light can get through from around the nose-piece. I believe this is due to my having a relatively small nose. I think many others would have no light at all when wearing it. If you do not have a sleep mask or haven’t upgraded yours in a while, this will likely make a world of difference.

Heiyo Finger Holder Phone Grip, Desk Stand With Car Mount – Compatible with All Phones & Tablets

This Heiyo Phone Holder is an extremely handy little gadget for your phone. The dimensions are about 1.5″ x 1.25, ” and it is 2″ diagonally. The ring is 1″ at the widest point. It fits fine on any of my fingers and should work for most people. 

The ring holder has a pretty prominent logo along with the phrase “make life easier.” While I’m not a big fan of logos, this one is decorative enough that I like it. The ring itself is quite sturdy, and it can be turned 360° so that you can hang it in any direction The surrounding surface is strong as well, though it is slightly pliable if you try to bend it. The other piece that you can stick on the car dash or wherever you choose is plastic, but it is more than adequate to the task. It looks pretty handsome, all in all.61tuE17cgkL._SL1100_.jpg

I do like it a lot. It has come in very handy. It had saved the phone a few times when I had the ring on my thumb but would have otherwise dropped it. It looks good on the phone, and the hook is small and has a low profile for the car. I don’t think I can ask for much more than this stand offers. This Heiyo product is a great stand for video watchers.

Even though an be undone and reattached, I would take care to make sure of the exact spot that works for you before applying the ring to the back of the phone. Check how you tend to hold and how you like it positioned for watching video content, etc. before trusting that you know where to place it for best utility.
