Sleep Number Pillow ~ Smiley 360 Mission

2016-03-14 00.55.24editI received my Pillow compliments of Sleep Number via Smiley360.

I am about to try it! Very excited!

I will update later. 🙂

#Sleep Number #Smiley360

 

This pillow has exceeded my expectations. It is much heavier than I expected. It has some heft to it. It feels as soft as a cloud, however. It is a pleasure to sleep on.

For years, I have slept with multiple pillows underneath my head to avoid reflux sickness. That was a nuisance because they might shift during the night. The quality of my sleep was often affected. Many times a week I woke with pain as a result.

Now, I do not need to stack anymore. This one pillow works perfectly. It is neither too thin nor too thick. I highly recommend one of these or any which fit your particular sleep style.

Sleep Number Store Visit – Smiley 360

I recently visited my local Sleep Number store in Anderson, SC as a result of an assignment I accepted from Smiley 360. Who knew it would be fun and informative!

2018-02-03 19.40.21

It had been years since I had been in a Sleep Number store. I soon learned that if you haven’t been to one lately, then you have not been to Sleep Number.

2018-02-03 19.41.50

I did the whole tour. My guide was the amazing Ned Lovell, who is the store manager. The big question I had was answered in no time flat. My sleep number is 35! Good to know!

The technology they have now is amazing. They call it Sleep IQ®. It rates your sleep, tells you your best sleeping hours, and can communicate with your fitness and sleep apps.

Other advancements include feet warming (yes!) and a light under the bed for those late night trips to the bathroom.

The sheets there can make a difference in staying at a comfortable temperature overnight.

The pillows are amazing. I tried one that has a curve or cut-out at the neck. I have never tried a more comfortable pillow. My next one will definitely have this feature!

2018-02-03 19.44.40

The entire store is summed up by the message on their doors. If you want to improve the 1/3 of your life spent sleeping and impact your overall health and well-being, then visit your local Sleep Number soon.

So, what is your sleep number? What is your experience with your Sleep Number bed or accessory?

iGOKU Bluetooth Speaker

This flowerpot intrigued me. It is perfect for small plants. I have been using it with one of the popular succulents. An artificial flower could work well, too—and it needs no upkeep!

This planter is full of unexpected surprises. With settings for either a 12- or 24-hour clock, having the time on the front display is handy. Beyond that, it has an alarm.

My essential oil diffuser has these same seven colors, so I feature the same static color. This ambient effect creates a striking theme and ties the room together.

The speaker is the best part. Pairing with a phone or tablet is easy.  Start Bluetooth on both devices, then select the choice that pops up on the list—delightful simplicity! The sound is comparable to other players. Impressive, considering they do not have extra features.

The “magical” touch piano songs should delight young children. The volume is loud while starting. I connect to my playlist right away to cut short the sequence.

I charge it overnight, and that is enough. After I wake, the outdoor bistro set supports my flowerpot and morning java. The plant and I enjoy the fresh air, along with an audiobook or tunes. This coffee klatch starts the day off on a sweet note.

Alisten Portable Wireless Bluetooth 4.0 Speaker and LED Light Lamp Alarm Clock

This Alisten Bluetooth Speaker with Alarm Clock LED Lamp comes with the unit, an aux cable, a USB cable, and an instruction booklet. The speaker is attractive, has three levels of brightness for the LED or can be turned off entirely for use while sleeping.

There is an FM radio, and it can play from Bluetooth devices and also as an MP3 player with USB and micro TF/SD Card input. Personally, I use it a lot out on my porch while I am working on my laptop. I use it in conjunction with Spotify or iTunes or even my microSD card full of my favorite songs. I have sometimes also had occasion to sleep while it is on. I love that it can be set to turn itself off so I can fall asleep to music and yet have darkness and silence after I have fallen asleep. 

It is true the instructions are not the clearest, but the features are not that terribly hard to figure out. I enjoy this little speaker and its portability. I move it from room to room when I change places I am working.

ONTA® Gorsun Foldable, Adjustable Lightweight Headphones (Orange)

These ONTA® Gorsun Foldable, Adjustable Lightweight Headphones are surprisingly good for the price and for being touted as children’s headphones. The headphones fit me comfortably. I consider I have a medium-sized adult head size. The fit was perfect for me, oddly enough– not too tight, nor too loose. I had no issues with them even after wearing them a long time. My daughter uses them while playing a PS4 game. She has said that after MANY hours they become a bit uncomfortable. These are not the only headphones available to her, either, so she chooses them, nevertheless. I am thinking they are suitable for about age nine and up, depending on head size.

I checked out the ONTA® pair for sound. Quite honestly I did not expect much. Instead, I was pretty impressed. The sound is crisp and full, unlike many headphones costing more than these.

Now the vibrant orange color and the plastic build and feel clues you in that these are for children. Happily, the sound does not. Unlike some similar products I have tested, these headphones fulfill their purpose well. Some things sold for children are low quality. Why? I imagine that children are not the consumers buying them and that manufacturers do not think the buying adults will truly test them out.

I would have no qualms giving these headphones to any young person.

Ledgle Essential Oil Diffuser 400ml Wood Grain Ultrasonic Aroma Diffuser

 

 

This Ledgle Essential Oil Diffuser can diffuse the air. It releases healthful negative ions in the air to prevent germs and odors. I use mine with essential oils that help with health concerns. However, you can also use it with just water like a humidifier.

The operation of this air purifier is simple. With one button, you can set it to mist for one, three, six hours, or in fact, continually. It can work for about seven hours on the continuous setting. 

This diffuser has ambient colored lights (red, yellow, green, light blue, dark blue, purple, and white). With the other button, you can set any of the singular lights or cycle them, or turn off the light completely. I program one of the steady lights in the evening for mood lighting and to reduce glare from electronic devices.

The Ledgle Essential Oil Diffuser is perfect for your spaces, whether in your home or office or a spa. I have mine prominently in my living room, as it is a large room, and this is the diffuser that has the greatest capacity. I do not have to refill it all the time, which is excellent.

The unit has an auto shut-off that powers it down when the water level is low. That way, there is no worry about using it at night or when you are not in the room. This diffuser is the easiest one I own to keep up. I use it the most of them all. I highly recommend this Ledgle Essential Oil Diffuser, especially in large rooms.

Fidget Force – LED Cosmic Hand Spinner

This Cosmic model is my first light-up spinner. I was not sure how I would like it. Would it just be too gimmicky? Would the lights increase my enjoyment of the focus spinner? Since my primary goal is better concentration when I am writing, would it improve that for me?

Surprisingly, the lights enhanced my experience. Especially in subdued lighting, the light show in your hands is cool. The lights going on when the spinner is idle are only so-so, but when it is spinning, the pattern is intriguing.

The spinner is black with white circles that let the LEDs show through when slight impact to them turns them on. Each end has three lights (blue, green, and red).

This Fidget Force Cosmic Hand Spinner is one of the lightest ones I own. The spins are among the smoothest, as well. The lights flicker for roughly twenty seconds after you tap them on with a finger or hand. The turns last longer than that, but this is not a spinner for the person who craves long spins. Especially in this instance, I do not mind because the added dimension the LEDs bring to the table.

The other side of the spinner has three peace sign stickers. There are also nine space-related stickers included in the package should you wish to change them out or the current ones wear out.

Although this is a pretty consistent spinner and the spins are smooth as butter, I do believe this is nevertheless one of the least durable should there be a fall from a height or heavy impacts. The most that will happen to this one is that it might fall on the rug, so that is a non-issue. If your child rough houses a lot, then you might want to look for a more durable specimen.

Senlleo Precision Optical Wired Mouse

This Senlleo Precision Optical Wired Mouse has a strong braided nylon cord, reinforced on the ends for extra strength. It is the sort that will not get hung up or tangled. It has a simple USB plug, and it is in fact, plug and play. That said, there are options you can configure in your general mouse settings, but there are still more if you go to http://www.senlleo.com and download the driver.

Now I am not a gamer, but my daughter is, so she loves this mouse. After all, there are six programmable buttons, four-color options, and many LED light patterns she can choose. As I said, the mouse is entirely customizable so that it can help her gameplay. Fortunately, programming it is straightforward. We can change it to our desired setting when we get to use the laptop. We both use Windows systems.

As for me, I set the mouse to control my music. I adore music, and this mouse now lets me work through, yet quickly and easily pause/ stop, play the previous or next track of my music in Spotify. This shortcut is saving me time and effort. When I am working, I do not “miss a beat.” Pun intended.

CRONA iPhone Cables

My daughter and I have used this set of Crona iPhone Cables for a few weeks now. We each have an iPhone 5S and have used these cords exclusively to charge them. In this time, we have gotten no error/ incompatibility messages, nor had any trouble with them.

There four cords are coming in handy around the house and in the car. The 6’ cord is being used on the living room sofa so we can charge at either end with no problem. We use the 3’ cables at both a chair and a love seat. The one’ cord I have at our desk. I have synced my phone there, and I charge my phone there overnight. Then it is powered for the next day.

One thing I particularly enjoy about these chargers is that they do not fray or tangle due to the durable nylon and the aluminum shell.

These cables are durable and should last even up to six times longer than others. Especially indicating a long life ahead is the reinforcement at the stress points. The texture of the cables was a bit off-putting at first, but I am getting used to it.

These Crona iPhone Cables have an 18-month warranty that offers either a full refund or replacement.

If you want a set of these four cables for yourself, here is the link.

RFID-Blocking Leather Women’s Wallet

This RFID Blocking Genuine Leather Women’s Wallet is cute and practical. It is seemingly ageless, as nearly everyone can use it. My young adult daughter loves it, I use it, and I am past middle age, and I can imagine seniors proudly toting it about town. Seriously, this style it has is both timeless and classical. I get an Audrey Hepburn vibe from it myself. The colors are gorgeous! It comes in black, purple and red. I bought the red, and it is beautiful.

I appreciate the roominess of this product. It holds my photo ID and other vital cards, such as my bank, credit/ debit, punch, savings and store cards. It can hold bills and change (zippered change purse). Two large zippered compartments hold at least nine single cards; then four large compartments contain cash or other items, including other cards if need be. The zippers are modern, yet retro at the same time. The wallet is custom-made; impeccably designed and stitched.

In the irony department, as I was putting together this review, I became aware of fraud against my account via a pop-up notification. Do not be deluded into thinking it could never happen to you, as it strikes people of all walks of life. It has happened to my family several times. This latest incident occurred across the country. At least I know it was not the result of the theft of my card, nor of it being scanned by thieves. After all, I have used RFID protective sleeves and wallets for many years. I have gifted them to some loved ones, too, so maybe they would not fall victim to predatory acts. Too bad a charming wallet cannot protect online identity, too.

Your RFID Women’s Wallet comes with a guarantee of full refund or replacement should you be dissatisfied.
