OSCOO Car Air Purifier, Ionizer & USB Charger (Rose Gold)

This OSCOO Car Air Purifier Ionizer & USB Charger comes in a gift-worthy white box. I would suggest it for anyone on your list, but those who spend a good deal of time traveling need this gadget. Likewise, anyone who has a smoker in there or who has asthma or any breathing condition. There is a warranty card enclosed, as Oscoo offers a limited one-year guarantee. Besides that, there is a little pamphlet (it is plug and play, after all).

Although I love it for its performance, it does not escape me that it is simply gorgeous. I bought it in Rose Gold. I have been using this car ionizer for a month now. It has been working wonderfully. You know it is working as there is a blue light that glows when you plug it in. The light is pleasant and not terribly blinding, which is important in a vehicle.

Negative ions help ease stress as well as take care of smells. They can lessen the symptoms of asthma and other conditions.

It still seems a bit like magic to me, but if you have spent any time near the ocean, you might remember how it made you feel. I have only had the experience a few times. Those are some of my all-time favorite memories. There was just such a feeling of well-being.

As for this technology, I knew it seriously worked years ago when I got a “new to me” vehicle. There was a nondescript stale odor in the car. The previous owner had noticed, as there were umpteen “pine tree type” air fresheners scattered around the vehicle. Nearly resigned to the situation, I researched possible solutions and took a chance when I bought one. As it turned out, mere days after plugging it in, my olfactory sense picked up– nothing!

As glad as I was that the ionizer took care of the problem of the odor in the car, I admit wishing that it doubled as a charger. Whenever my family needed to plug in a phone or tablet, it meant I needed to swap one out with my purifier. Now that we have this model, the charger capability is there for us anytime. The charging is fast, with its Quick Charge 3.0 technology. My iPhone 5S takes about an hour for a full charge.

Beyond the dual tasks of ionizing and charging, it can save lives. Seriously, it has a safety hammer tool that can be used to break out a window in case of an emergency. Buying something useful like this charger that has this added benefit makes more sense than getting a gadget having a single purpose (which no one hopes to use).

Naturally, the more you are in the vehicle, the more you will appreciate the difference and reap the benefits from this device. My late husband used to drive trucks. If he were still doing so today, I would have gotten him this charger so that he could keep in touch with us, enjoy a healthier environment (important especially in such close quarters), and could protect himself (or others) in an emergency. On second thought, I would not have gotten the same one. He would have preferred the other colors more. :-

Aicok Single Serve Coffee Maker

This Aicok Single Serve Coffee Maker has a stainless steel body design. It is durable and sturdy and should be around for years. The Aicok is also BPA free.

The machine is compatible with Keurig’s 10oz coffee pods. I have been enjoying many cups now with no issue. I used to have a Keurig maker in the past, but I gave it away to a loved one. It is surprising to me how much I like having one again. It is incredibly handy! I save money often by using a reusable pod filled with coffee my family enjoys.

The size of this machine is so compact that I am toying with the idea of putting it on my desk for even more convenience. At only 8.5 x 4.9 x 9.1 inches and not even 2.5 pounds, it’s got a small enough footprint for sure for all but the tiniest desks. I still love my French press, but this is excellent for those times that only one person wants coffee. If we both do not want coffee, we generally will not make a pot, as we do not want to waste any. This way, we get coffee whenever we like regardless whether the other person is in a java mood.

The cartridge is removable and is top rack dishwasher safe, which makes it easy to keep it pristine. I would not use the sterilizer cycle to be on the safe side, however. It is a definite plus to me that most of my travel mugs fit s

The one button operation makes it simple for even the most bleary-eyed to make their morning brew. This machine has an auto-shut off and protection against overheating. It is UL certified.

The Aicok Single Serve Coffee Maker has a 100% guarantee, as well as a 24-month manufacturer warranty, so there is no risk.

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.

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.

~GROUPON COUPONS ~ $avings on Gifts!

835128

This post is sponsored. However, all opinions are genuinely mine. I have used Groupon Coupons for years, so it is about time I give credit where it is due. Before my husband passed away, I discovered the site and was delighted with the savings we accumulated with them. The coupons made it possible for our family to afford purchases that were otherwise not possible. Now, since he has passed on, it is even more vital that I keep to a very strict budget. I use Groupon more than ever to help me make ends meet.

I still love to give, however. Despite the drop in disposable income, you can bet I do not want to stop now. That is why I check the Groupon site, including Groupon Coupons, often. There is always something new! Often I find exactly the gift I am looking for at a deep, deep discount.

Since I have moved away from my hometown, I give some gifts to loved ones some distance away. One of the things I so enjoy myself is personalized gifts. I try to follow the adage that the best gifts are those you would love to receive yourself. I adore Things Remembered. I have fond memories of shopping the store before I moved from New York. Now that the locations are inaccessible to me, I am thrilled that I can buy online and gift-away from the comfort of my home. Groupon Coupons offers that have come in handy recently are 20% off with free shipping and 50% off!

The other thing I love to gift is flowers. There are so many occasions that they are stellar for– birthdays, Mother’s Day, Sweetest Day, and Valentine’s Day, etc. Who doesn’t smile when they receive them? I have trusted From You Flowers for a few decades to send the perfect bouquet to express my sentiments of compassion, congratulations, and friendship. Groupon Coupons has had offers lately of up to 50% off of roses and flowers and 15% savings on fruit, spa, and wine gift baskets. “Work smarter; not harder” is true to form, so too it works here. I shop smarter with Groupon Coupons. If you haven’t tried it, do yourself a favor and give it a try. If it’s been a while, you might want to check it and see what kind of discounts you might have racked up. There are certain to be coupons for the vast majority of stores and businesses you already enjoy.

How has Groupon Coupons saved you money?

GROUPON GOODS FOR THE HOLIDAYS… AND BEYOND!

groupon_logo-svg_-768x165

This post is sponsored. However, all opinions are genuinely mine. I am always looking for good deals, whether it is for my daughter and me, my daughter who lives a town away, or extended family and friends. With Thanksgiving coming in no-time, I have reflected on those things for which I am grateful. It may sound trite, but eight years after my husband’s passing, I can make ends meet. The main reason for this is my deal hunting– and a big part of that is Groupon.

Groupon started out years ago being the site I would go to for those magic certificates. They were the difference between being able to get my family a haircut or other service. Occasionally they made a fun night possible for us all when otherwise it was not in the budget. Then I discovered their coupons, and this helped month after month meet expenses while still providing some unexpected and glorious little luxuries, too.

Soon afterward, thankfully, I stumbled upon Groupon Goods. Shopping at home just fits my lifestyle to a “T,” so I was more than intrigued. There are so many categories to choose from, and the merchandise runs the gamut from things I have wanted for a while to things I have never heard, nor seen before. It is worth checking out their offerings, which often change.

I especially am staying glued to their site for their Black Friday deals, because they are unbelievably good! Christmas season is coming upon us, but Groupon and I are getting it done. So, do yourself a favor be it over the holidays or the other eleven months of the year and check out Groupon Goods here:  https://www.groupon.com/goods/jawbone

Now, though, I need to wind up this blog post so that I can buy batteries for the holidays at a fantastic price and a cute kitchen apron set for taking that turkey out of the oven. 🙂
