Moheda Linnea Clogs Review (Tomoson)

I received Moheda Linnea Clogs, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. Moheda makes Swedish clogs. The package also came with mints and a pack of playing cards. I haven't wore clogs in a while, so it took me a minute to get used to the shoes. I can't wear the shoes for hours though, but I can wear them to church or around the house. Maybe at the doctor's office or somewhere, where I am not walking for long periods.

The linnea is a floral pattern on a white background. The floral pattern is made out of leather. The sole is a natural treated wood.

You can purchase linnea clogs and other clogs from the link above. The shoes took a few weeks to arrive. Make sure to google your European size before you order.

Sieva Vitamin C Serum Review (Tomoson)

I received Sieva Vitamin C Serum, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. Vitamin C Serum can help with wrinkles, fine lines, and dark circles. I have a lot of dark circles from sleepless nights with the kids or if I stay up all night cleaning, like I did last night. It didn't help that I had to get up at 6 am to call transportation to see what time and what number was Brad's ESY (extended school year) bus was coming. Today was his first day. The driver did not call in advance to provide the information. Then, Kalen had a doctor appointment at 1.

This week will be hard on my sleep and eyes. Kalen has an cardio appointment on Wednesday at 9 am. He will be having an ECG.

Picture this, wake up at 6, 6:30, get Brad ready for school, get Kalen ready for his appointment, and be ready by 8 am to meet Medicaid transportation. Repeat on Thursday for genetics for Kalen and lab work for both kids.

The serum is easy to use. You apply very little to areas needed. Make sure to avoid the eyes. I usually apply between a toner and moisturizer. Sometimes, by itself, if I am pressed for time

You can purchase the product, using the link above. Sieva is prime-eligible.

AZSPORT Kinesiology Tape Review (Tomoson)

I received AZSPORT Kinesiology Tape, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. The Amazon page for the product has been taken down, hence no link, affiliate or not. I did find the product on Ebay.

I have heard of kinesiology tape before, but never used it. The tape is supposed to help with pain relief. I have back problems and sometimes shoulder pain from carrying a toddler or two around, not to mention the pain when Brad starts kicking and screaming.

The tape needs to be cut to be used. No ripping and tearing the tape, unless you got Hulk strength.

I used the tape on my back to relieve pressure. The tape moved a few times. It wasn't pleasant to pull the tape off. I wore the tape for an hour, while cleaning.

The Villain Review (Sage Publications)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I read The Villain, in exchange for honest review from Sage Publications. The book was written by May Nicole Abbey.

About the book: from media kit

A fall and crash

A violent journey through the doorways of time

A villain or hero in the making

Rosemary Mayfield teeters on the brink of ruin. With the murder of her parents she is left the sole guardian of her younger brother and sister. Once a wealthy socialite in New York City, she now finds herself stranded in the untamed wilderness of the American West.

When a wounded man comes crashing through her roof, as rough as the savage land, it is against her better judgment to bring him into her home and her heart. But she soon discovers he holds a secret that shatters everything, and she must make a choice, unaware that often destiny hinges on a single moment.

Fresh from an unsavory past and a violent fall through time, Nicolas Ekkridon awakens to find himself cared for by three orphans ignorant of the role he played in their parents’ untimely death. They accept and embrace him, and a lifetime of hardened barriers begin to crumble.

On the precipice between good and evil, only Rosemary and her spirited defiance stands between him and villainy. But time and space are against them. As its weaving tentacles envelop them in an indifferent grasp, they are swept into a shattering series of circumstances that threaten the very makeup of their lives. But when time can be bent, nothing is written in stone. 

About the Authors: 

Caroline Gregory and Shawnette Nielson are sisters on a mission. Their goal is to write clean, adventuresome time travel stories, full of lovely characters, personal growth, truth, and hope.

Although they are many miles from each other, and are both busy with the daily needs of their respective families, they carve out time each night to put fingers to keyboard and write.

Their goal? Twenty completed books. Set all over the world and throughout time, they thrill at the freedom that writing time travel offers them.

From Georgian society, to Ancient Egypt, and the Wild West, there are even plans for books set in Ancient Greece, the future, as well as today. The possibilities are limitless.

My Review

I wanted to review the book based on the description. Here is a city woman with wealth, now learning how to live in the south. In the beginning, she is accessing the town, minutes before gathering her brother and sister. She is 19 and now a caregiver to two kids, Emily and Benjamin. Rosemary had a lot to take on. 

The book was a good read. The authors included a lot of action in the first few pages, which I liked. They brought you into the story quick

You can purchase the book on Amazon. The book is available in Kindle format only.

Extra Large Blue Picnic and Outdoor Blanket Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I received Extra Large Blue Picnic Blanket & Outdoor Blanket, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. The blanket folds out into a nice size blanket for a few people. The blanket also has velcro attached so you can fold it up the proper way, if you remember. I completely forgot how to fold the blanket so the velcro would connect.

I wanted to review the blanket for the rare times, I go outside to the back yard. Sometimes, the kids run around or play in the pool. The blanket allows me to sit in the grass without having to hunt down a chair.

Or if the kids eat upstairs, I can use the blanket to keep them from spilling food on the floor. I also love how soft the blanket feels.

You can purchase the blanket, using the link above. The blanket is prime-eligible.

Baby Edge Guards Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I Received Elf Star Extra Thick Premium High Density Furniture Table Edge Protectors Foam Baby Safety Bumper Guard 2 Meters (6.5 Ft) Black, in exchange for honest review from Amazon. The bumper guards comes with the guards and double sided tape.

The guards come in different colors and two sizes. I chose the black, 2 meter bumpers. I wanted to place these around Kalen's bed (pictures coming later. can't find them). You cut the guards to the length needed, then use the double sized tape to adhere the guards to the bed or other items.

Be careful though. Too much applying and removing can cause the guards not to stick after a while. Kalen has messed up the guards around my bed (another brand, another review). The guards do not adhere well to super glue, elephant glue, cement, and elmers glue, after Kalen, or someone else messes up the tape.

You can purchase the guards, using the link above. Be careful when choosing a seller. One elf guard is fulfilled by Amazon and one is not. The one, which is not, was the one, I accidently ordered. The one not fulfilled by Amazon arrives within two weeks versus two days fulfilled by Amazon.

The Roots Naturelle Hair Oil Moisturizer Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I received The Roots Naturelle Premium Hair Oil Moisturizer , in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. The product is a hair oil moisturizer and a leave-in conditioner. I wanted this product for me, who suffers from dry scalp and itchiness. Even though, I don't have hair, I still need moisturizer.

I also have used the product on Kalen, my niece, and great niece.

The moisturizer contains shea butter and caster oil. It also leaves your hair feeling soft and moisturized. For my head and kids head, I used very little. For my niece, I had to use more since she has a million bags of weave in her scalp.

The moisturizer also gives your head a shine, if you have a shaved head.

Hand Grip Strengthener Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I received the Hand Grip Strengthener Exerciser, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. The grips come in sets of two. I remember growing up, seeing my uncle Joe (died maybe in 2007), using hand grip exercisers. I wasn't sure what they was for, but I did enjoy trying to squeeze the exercisers. I didn't realize at the time, hand grips come in different weights.

These hand grips are easy to use. They also have soft foam handles. The grips are easy to squeeze. You don't need to adjust anything. These are great for stress relief, after the kids try my last nerves. The grips are also great for exercise and therapy for arthritis, carpal tunnel, and other hand therapies.

You can purchase the grips, using the link above. The grips are prime-eligible and reasonably priced.

Dolphins Don't run Marathons Book Review (Tomoson)

ccDisclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I read Dolphins Don't Run Marathons: 26.2 loving thoughts on why you should not run a marathon, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. The book was written by Sam Brand.

I am not a sporty person. I can walk miles. I have walked hours to get to work or to a job interview or to a train station. I can walk around the zoo for the walk for Autism, but I have never tried or want to try to run any marathons or triathlons.

I thought this was an interesting book to read. The author started out describing three types of people, who run marathons, the ant, the chimp, and the dolphin. The ant is the marathon runner. They love going the distance. The author also says it's hard for ants to change their patterns. The author also says human ants are running from something.

The chimp doesn't like sports. They work out from time to time, but exercise is not a part of their regular routine. Chimps are pleasure seekers. This is me.

Finally, the dolphin is active and athletic. They have a good social life. They know how to maintain balance in their lives.

To win a marathon, you must be prepared. You need endurance. But you also don't need to miss out on life because you are preparing for a big race, at least that's what the author says. For me, if I am focused on something, I can miss out on other things, because I need to achieve this goal. Like, when I finally got my bachelors degree, I didn't miss school because of a date or a minor sickness. I had to get that degree.

The book outlines the differences between the animals. The book also discusses how the ant and chimp can channel their inner dolphin.

The book is available in paperback, Kindle, and Kindle Unlimited format.

Greenwald's Glass and Hard Surface Cleaner AND Carpet and Fabric Stain Remover Review

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I received both Greenwald's Glass and Window Cleaner Kit and Carpet, Upholstery & Fabric Stain Remover Kit, in exchange for honest review.

Each kit comes with the bottle, the squirt nozzle, and 6 water soluble, concentrated, cleaning packs.

I used the glass cleaner on my counter top in the bathroom, the fixtures, and my mirror. I used the carpet stain remover on smaller, recent, stains on my bedroom floor. The glass cleaner has a built in doohickey, which helps prevent streaks and fingerprints. I been using the glass cleaner in my bathroom on a regular basis. The glass cleaner does not have a strong smell like windex. Both products have a light scent. I either use a cloth for glass cleaning or just spray and go.

For the carpets, the cleaner worked better on more recent stains, versus the deeper stains, which been here before I moved in. It did pick up dirt well off my floor. I may try some of the cleaner in my carpet cleaner, when I clean the carpet in the game room/brad bedroom and the steps this weekend.

To use each product, you add the cleaning pack(s) to each bottle with water. Then, wait a few minutes, shake, and then spray. The nozzles are adjustable to the speed needed. You can move from a light drizzle to a heavier flow for cleaning.

The nozzles are also sensitive to touch. If the bottles drop, they come loose. If you accidentally bump them against something, they come loose from the bottle. I spent a lot of time rescrewing and retightening the nozzles.

You can purchase both products, using the link above . Greenwald's products are prime-eligible.
