Expower Tri-Fold Lighted Travel Makeup Mirror

UNBOXING:

– Tri-fold lighted travel makeup mirror
– CR2032 batteries (2) 

This box and packaging are gift-worthy if you are looking for a holiday present. The product is well-protected inside, so it should arrive intact.

The makeup mirror looks lovely in rose gold. The size is the height of an iPhone 7 Plus. Add two inches more than that of the phone for the width. It is equal to the palm width of my hand when my fingers are extended.

The bottom right corner of the mirror has the company logo in white. The back of the device has the battery compartment. Before the first use, you need to remove the plastic tab over the batteries, so the connection is made, and the light is operational. The unit takes two CR2032 batteries (included). The stand below allows the mirror to angle anywhere between 45-90 degrees.

At the top is the power button for the lights. There is no automatic shut-off feature.

The mirror opens like an old-fashioned wardrobe. Once open, you notice the larger surface in the center taking up 50% of the space and smaller ones on either side having 25% each of the total real estate. The mirror in the center has eight bright round led lights that glow through the shape of decorative white hearts; four on each side. There is no magnification on this mirror, so WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get). 

SUMMARY:

This makeup aid works perfectly for face or hair touch-ups. The size is small enough to fit in nearly any bag. Whether you are traveling a long distance or just local errands, it is there for you when you need it. It is far superior to car mirrors to check yourself before that interview or that important meeting. Recharging capabilities would be a plus, but I have the CR2032 batteries on hand for other devices, anyway.

Ibagbar Canvas Messenger Bag

 

The Ibagbar Canvas Laptop Bag is gorgeous! I ordered the dark gray one. The color is far from drab, but more of an eggplant-gray fusion. Exquisite! 

The styling is a traditional messenger. Nine pockets of varying sizes make it roomy. Most often, I transport a tablet, cell phone, small binder, and writing utensils. 

The strap is sturdy. You can sling it over a shoulder or wear it cross-body style. The magnetic snaps are perfect—neither too weak nor too strong. They have worked each time with precision. The stitching looks first-rate throughout.

Expect compliments!

If you want one for yourself or for a thoughtful and fashionable gift, here is the Amazon product page.

 

 

 

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.

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. :-

Inflatable Travel Neck Velvet Pillow

This JXZH U-Shaped Inflatable Travel Neck Pillow Set includes the micro velvet cushion with a detachable, washable cover, a set of earplugs, an eye mask, and a handy carrying pouch to keep everything together.

It takes seconds to inflate, and the beauty of an inflatable cushion is that you control how hard or soft it is so that it is comfy for you– try doing that with a standard pillow. Deflating it also takes no time. You can store it that way for even more space savings, such as in a vehicle or your luggage.

I have used it in the car and enjoyed it during trips. I find it even more useful at home. Seriously, watching something or sitting up and reading in bed is better with this pillow on top of the regular bed pillow I use. It gives me support for my neck and head in addition to comfort. Otherwise, my head just sinks into the bed pillow, and it makes it hard to sit up properly. Mainly it is perfect for this use because of the camel-back shape design.

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.

MIZO Sleep Mask, 3-Pack

I have owned some deplorable sleep masks over the years. Usually, they have let in light. Alternately, they are uncomfortable. I have had some decent eye shades in the last few years, but I have tended to give them away to friends and family. So I turned to Amazon looking for some good ones again.

I prefer to sleep in total darkness. My best sleeping happens devoid of any light. My research has borne out what I long suspected– that the pineal gland of the body requires utter darkness to perfect its important work while we sleep.

I paid particular attention to the product description and the images of the available options before deciding on this sleep mask set. Three sleep masks are great because I will have one already at the ready even if we have a guest over and one is in the laundry. These products have the deeply molded pockets for your eyes that have worked well for me before. The mask also covers a wider area than some others, so that seemed a good sign.

After having used these nightly for about a month, I am happy I got this brand in this measure. These beauties do block out all light, even when I try to sleep in a bright room (we cannot always manage what is ideal for us). The material of the mask and the band are comfortable and do not inhibit sleep. Any eye covering can slip off the face while sleeping, but this has done so only a few times for me. That might have something to do with me being a person who barely shifts at all when asleep, but other masks have come off more frequently than these do.

The black and the blue are equally suitable for men or women. They would be ideal for transportation, be it private or public, and for traveling in general.

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.
