USB-C CARD READER

This ICZI USB 3.0 Type C Adapter Connector makes transferring files, photos, or videos between a micro SD or SD card and your Type-C laptop or smartphone easy and quick. The connector is smaller than most flash drives I own.

No drivers are needed, as this is a plug and play adapter. Use this device for Micro-SD, SDHC/ SDXC, and TF. Data transfer is fast. You can use this 3.0 device even with USB 2.0 and USB 1.1, as it is backward compatible.

You can use this adapter with the following computers: Chromebook Pixel, Mac OS V9.0 and higher, Win 98/ 2000/ XP/ Vista, and 7. This adapter is compatible with the new Samsung Galaxy S8/S8 Plus as well as any other smartphone that is USB-C OTG.

I prefer using this adapter over connecting by a cord. It is simple. Photos are no hassle anymore where I used to dread the chore and let too many accumulate before removing them.

The ICZI USB-C Card Reader has a 30-day return policy and a one-year warranty, so there is no risk.

Dream Salts Himalayan Salt Night Light

This Dream Salts Himalayan Salt Night Light is a fantastic idea. I have been a proponent of Himalayan salt lamps for years. I have several in my home. I have the other Dream Salts Night Light in the cube shape. I love it, so I got this sphere shape for my other bathroom.

This mini-light gives the same great properties that larger salt lamps have to offer: cleaning and purifying the air. On top of that, it doubles as a night light. Nice!

BeautyYa Waist Pack with Water Bottle

This BeautyYa Waist Pack with Water Bottle is an attractive wearable belt perfect for many activities; bargain shopping at indoor or outdoor markets, climbing, hiking, jogging, running or walking.

Many jogging and running outfits do not have pockets. This accessory does nicely in those cases. The belt fits me perfectly and sits at the waist nicely. I usually do not wear belts as they can hurt my midsection, but this one has not so far.

There are three front pockets. The first is a holder complete with a clear 10oz sports water bottle, which is a nice bonus. There is a zippered pocket which is ideal for a cell phone. It is amply sized even for the largest phones on the market. There is an earphone slot, too, so you can enjoy an audiobook, music, or talk on the phone as needed. The third pocket is great to put necessary things such as cards, cash, and keys.

If you are interested in getting one for yourself or a loved one, the link is here.

Hong Bo Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds

These Hong Bo H901 Wireless Bluetooth Headphones come with three sets (S/M/L) of ear hooks and earbud tips, a micro USB charging cable, and a user manual. This H901 is a seriously quality pair. The sound is excellent and full. It is balanced. Nice! The bass is not going to blast you across the room, but it is perfect for me. The headphones have a variety of ear pieces so that you are guaranteed a great fit. I can wear these for quite a stretch without discomfort.

Pairing with the latest 4.1 technology is simple. I just press the button on the leftmost earbud after turning on my device’s Bluetooth. The voice tells you the power is on and then that there is a connection made. It could not be easier. I use these with my Kindle Fire 8, and I love it! This Bluetooth solution is so much better than putting a tablet in one’s pocket.

These headphones stay put in my ears no matter what I do, including working out. If you get a call, these will allow you to pick it up or reject it, talk, and then hang up. The talk time on a charge is 10-hours! When finished with the call, your music starts back where you were with no issue.

The battery is long-lasting on these Hong Bo earphones. The battery has never quit on me when I have needed it, as there is an 8-hour listening time. There is a 250-hour standby time. I do not need to charge them often, either. That is convenient. These are so good that I am buying another set for my daughter.

Rackaster Fidget Hand Spinner Toy

My daughter and I have checked out about a dozen spinner focus toys so far. This model made a great impression on us.

Fidget toys have become a hot commodity and frequent topic of discussion. You have probably heard about the list of benefits elicited from their use. ADD, ADHD, anxiety disorders, Aspergers and Autism are just the “A-list” of examples. Bad habits are easier to overcome for some. Enhanced focus is a benefit for me. Downtime is enjoyable.

This red spinner is an EDC [Every Day Carry] toy. I had no idea until I did some research that there are about sixty styles and types of fidget spinners. There are more than thirty options from which to choose when it comes to the chain and cube varieties. It has got to be the phenomenon of the year.

This Rackarster Fidget Hand Spinner Toy is a solid competitor among the field with its 608 inline skate bearing, ABS plastic body, and hybrid ceramic (non-3D printed) bearing. The body design is the most common one on the market. The spins are pretty impressive with most being over two minutes and over three not being too uncommon in my experience. Where this one shines for me is how effortlessly it glides and has little noise except a satisfying little whir.

I use this by spinning it in my hand with my fingers, on a flat surface and even on a pencil or pen after I have taken the middle caps off. Personally, I get a focus boost out of this Rackarster Fidget Tool. I have a bit of adult ADD going on. Having one of these gadgets handy just seems to get me to concentrate better and be less scattered in my thinking. Maybe it is even almost a placebo effect based on that when I use it; my intention is to become more focused. Whatever it is, I will take the benefit.

The Rackarster is not the glitziest model out there, it has no lights nor multiple colors, but I do not need any of that myself. This EDC is a good spinner whether it’s your first or twenty-first piece. Had someone told me I would be collecting “toys,” I would not have believed it. I finally found a trend I enjoy.

Portable Handheld Fabric Steamer

This Notting Portable Handheld Fabric Steamer is a handy little tool to keep your clothing looking top notch. It is so compact at  8.25″ tall that it is perfect for travel as well as home use. It is light weight at just over one pound, too. The 140ml tank seems deceptively small, but you can go for a while before it runs out.

Who has time for ironing? Anyone. It takes only a minute to heat the water to boiling. Steaming your garments could not be easier. Fill the reservoir, plug the unit in, turn the switch on, wait about 60 seconds, then attack those wrinkles.

I have used mine mainly for my curtains and draperies and even my shower curtain. It is so much easier to do while they are hanging. It not only removes unsightly wrinkles, but it neutralizes odors and refreshes the fabric. I have used it on my daughter’s scrubs for work, as well.

The power is automatically shut off when the water level is low for safety. There is a 30-day money back guarantee as well as a 24-month warranty, so there is no risk.

OTYTY Tactical LED Flashlight

This OTYTY Tactical LED Flashlight comes in a durable and handy plastic snap lock box. Inside there is foam rubber on the bottom and top lids to protect the contents. The case has the flashlight with an attached wrist strap, the 18650 rechargeable battery, a cylinder for the 18650 battery, a holder for 3 AAA batteries as an alternate power supply, and a wall charger for the 18650.

I put the 18650 into the charger and plugged it in, figuring I would charge it so it would be ready for use when needed. The green indicator light signified full power status. Had it needed a charge, it would have glowed red instead. So I put the battery into the protective sleeve and inserted both into the barrel. I screwed the back on and pressed the orange power button.

The barrel expands and contracts to zoom: [x1, x250, x500, x1000, and x2000]. The beam at x1 is a small square of light which expands out into a huge circle by x2000. The light is quite bright, though it has a slightly bluish tint to it.

The power button has several different functions that it toggles through; namely, max, med, low brightness, strobe, and SOS. To change the mode, merely soft-press the button until your chosen setting appears.

I could not be more pleased with the accessories, features, and value of this flashlight.

Kicking Horse Coffee, Ground, 10oz

 

This Kicking Horse Coffee, Dark Roast, Ground, 10 oz is the real deal. It is darker than most coffees I have had in the last several months, yet it has delightfully smooth, too. For me, that is a winning combination.

It arrives in a fold-down, resealable package. It was fresh I could tell when opening the bag. The scent was earthy AND heavenly. The taste is full-bodied. It is the perfect eye-opener for my family and me. Already ground, you are one step closer to your morning jolt of java.

Kicking Horse is Kosher and Certified Organic & Fair Trade coffee. These shade-grown Arabica beans are roasted 3,000 feet above sea level, near the Columbia River. The people behind Kicking Horse have been doing this for nearly 20 years, and it shows in this blend. I would say without qualification that it stands out proudly as one of the top three on my list of favorite tasting coffees ever. Good company!

Love Heart Birthstone Pendant

 

This Love Heart Necklace that I got for Mother’s Day features a simulated [cubic zirconia} version of my birthstone. My birthday is in October, so my stone is pink tourmaline. It is beautiful! It truly catches the light and looks spectacular. I feel pretty special while I have it on. I have received compliments on it already.

The 925 sterling silver chain is 18″ long. It weighs just 2.60 grams. It is a dainty necklace. Even though it is elegant looking, it is perfect for any occasion or even dressed down for everyday use. It is versatile. I would not hesitate to buy one as a gift for a loved one for a birthday or another occasion. It says “I love you” complete with gift box.

You can see more and buy any of these twelve beautiful pendants here.

HBlife Acrylic Makeup Organizer Tray

This HBlife Clear Acrylic Makeup Organizer Tray is eye-catching and prettier than I expected. The etched pattern in front and the center heart in the back are lovely touches. It is thick and durable premium acrylic. It is quite sturdy and should last a while. It would be excellent for makeup or even office supplies. As an office geek, I almost used it as a desktop organizer. Makeup finally won out, however. It makes the process of putting on one’s face much more quick and streamlined.

I used to keep makeup in my bathroom closet in organized boxes. I did not want the room cluttered. There was a box for eyes, face, lips, and nails. Now the items I use most often are all out on my counter accessible in the morning and when I need a touch-up.

The nine compartments make organization easy. Your tools stay neat and handy. The standout for me particularly is that the compartments are perfect for plenty of brushes, for lash products, lipstick and nail polish. You can completely customize this according to your needs and style.

HBlife Clear Acrylic Makeup Organizer Tray is moisture and waterproof, so there is no potential for mold. That is especially important in a bathroom. Cleanup is simple with some mild soap and water.
