Bonebit Fitness Tracker Watch

This Bonebit Fitness Tracker Watch boasts a long battery life with an estimated 7-10 hours standby time and four days operating time on a full charge. To charge the watch, just detach the wristband and plug the end into an available 5V/1.0A USB power supply.

Using this heart rate monitoring personal device is simple. It does need a smartphone. It is not compatible with a computer or a tablet. This watch works with iOS 7.1 and above and Android 4.4 or above. You will need to download the free “Veryfit for Heart Rate” App from either the Apple Store or Google Play.

The sedentary alert is more convenient than the Chrome extension I had used. It still reminds me to get active often, and it goes with me. I expect to use this watch for more activities with increasing fitness levels. Primarily, for now, I am using the step counter. It is motivating me to increase my walking distance every day. It does take about thirty steps or so for the tracking to begin. Little changes can have long-lasting ripples, and I am looking forward to reaping the rewards on down the road.

The other feature I must brag on is the sleep quality monitoring function. I used to have an app that I loved that performed the same duty, but it no longer works. I have an adrenal condition, and frequent insomnia and knowledge about what is happening during sleep cycles may prove invaluable in reversing these difficulties. This Bonebit Fitness Tracker Watch is the right “step” for me at this “time.”

Natural Feelings Chokers [6]

 

The Natural Feelings Choker Set option I chose has six necklaces in all. They arrive each in a protective plastic bag. The set includes a black velvet pouch to store them.

These fashion accessories are all the rage now. I bought this set as a gift for my younger daughter. She looks lovely on her. There are some gothic and some tattoo lace ones in the collection. She has a weekly event she attends that is the perfect venue to wear the necklaces. She is excited to show them off.

The material here is either felted lace or leather, which is excellent. There is no cheap plastic as some other chains use. There is no scratchiness or discomfort. The clasps are either on the left or the right, which takes a little getting used to, but is no real problem.

My daughter’s neck is fairly average [about 14″], but she is using a bit of the extender to fit them correctly. I recommend double-checking for neck size if that is any concern.

The Natural Feelings Choker Set [6] offers a 90-day money back or product exchange warranty, so there is no risk.

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!

“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.
