Large Floating Flowers Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I received Simply Essentials Large Floating Flowers, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. The flowers come in a set of four. Each flower is 11 inches. The flowers are available in purple, white, and yellow. I received the purple set.

I love artificial flowers to decorate with or make crafts with.

I used one flower in my Marimo jar. Other uses include weddings, fountains, ponds, or a nice, long bath with floating flowers. Maybe you want a nice centerpiece for your table. Add some led candles(floating or non-floating to help set the mood. I used an led candle to light up my jar.

Pinterest has many boards dedicated to floating flowers used with real and artificial flowers. One pin, which stood out, was a lotus flower with solar lights. Great way to light up water scenery at night.

You can purchase the flowers, using the link above. The flowers are prime-eligible.

She's Got the Wrong Guy Review (Litfuse)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affililate Links.

I read She's Got the Wrong Guy, IWhy Smart Women Settle)in exchange for honest review from Litfuse. The book was written by Deepak Reju. The book is Christian-based. Reju discusses how dating is harder for single, intelligent, Christian women.

For me, I was impressed with the title. I have limited dating experiences. I never been big on dating and relationships. I started late in life dating. I focused on grades to achieve my goals to moving as far from Texas as possible, in order to have a life (ended up moving back in 2010. I  married my first boyfriend, even though I saw red flags. I was in college at the time (for the wrong reasons. not the right school for me), when I met him. We got married less than two years later after we married.

The next and last boyfriend, I had was in 2006. The relationship lasted a month or so. I met him, leaving work. He was going in to work and I was on my way to the bus stop to go home. What stood out about him was he was wearing a suit to go clean a stadium.

I just don't grasp the ins and outs of dating. I want to date. I want to be married again one day, but I want to do things the right way. From my limited dating experiences and my former promiscous life, I have seen many red flags, I don't want in my next relationship.

I have noticed not many men want to date a celibate woman, nor do many want to date the promiscuous woman. Many want the option of sex if I decide to enter into a relationship. Even with celibacy, everyone has a different definition. I have talked to "celibate" men, who still wanted the option of sexual activity without the penetration. Reju does a good job explaining how sex has become prevalent in today's society. Even Christians struggle with promiscuity and pornography.

Reju also discusses how women settle for men because they want marriage or motherhood. Women accept red flags to achieve goals. Women also stay in settled relationships, even when the relationship isn't working.  From dating non-believers to dating overly flirtatious men, women settle. Settling and ignoring red flags can affect your morals, values, and faith. When I was younger, I was taught co-habitation and premarital sex was wrong. I was raised these things was wrong, yet engaged in them many times. As I got older, I had to pay for the consequences of my actions, including a more jaded personality. I can sense a red flag approaching and try to shut it down quick. It's like I heard and seen this before, this is not anything new, go away.

The book is a good read.

AgpTek Waterproof LED Lights Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I received AGPTek's pink/purple waterproof LED lights, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. I wanted to review them to spruce up my marimo jar, while also providing a bit of light to the closet. The lights also can be used as tea lights.

My marimo jar previously had the marimos and water beads in the jar. I removed all the water beads, cleaned the jar, and refreshened the water. I placed the marimos back in the jar with a few water beads and the led lights. I placed most of the water beads into two tall water bottles to help decorate the storage unit. I also added a led light to each water bottle.

The lights are floral shaped.

The lights comes in 2 packs of 12. Batteries are included. To use the lights, you simply twist the lights open. Remove the paper insert and screw both halves back together. To turn on and off, you twist the lights.  If the lights don't work, check the batteries. In some of the lights, the batteries was backwards.

You can purchase the LED lights, using the link above. The lights are prime-eligible.

#InstaPeel Exfoliant Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links

I received Earthen Instapeel, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. Instapeel is an exfoliant to help peel away dead skin. Instapeel is a natural product. Instapeel can be used on sensitive skin.

The product is recommended for use in the shower. You shower as normal and let your body steam for 5 minutes. Then, you open the packet and squeeze a small amount. You massage the cream on dry skin and rinse your skin. You continue to massage the cream until the peeling stops.

The cream is not meant to dry on your skin.

I used the product on my feet. The cream did work on the applied area (around my upper pads of my foot). The peeling process does take some time. I bathed late at night, once the kids were sleep, so I can test the product without distraction or the cream drying. The cream is not thick, but a thinish texture.

For me, the hard part was the waiting for the cream to work and waiting for the peeling process to cease. Patience is a virtue. If you want to see results, you will need to put aside the time. The product is great for when you want to pamper yourself.

You can purchase the cream, using the link above.

Device Companion Portable Cooling Stand Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I recieved Device Companion's Portable Cooling Stand, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson.

I liked the stand because it was different from other cooling stand, I had in the past. No plugging anything in. No loud fans.

The stand comes with four magnetic legs and four stick-on magnets. I applied the magnets to the back of my pc, since it does not have legs. Then, you apply the magnetic legs to the magnets. The legs give the laptop or your devices height. Be careful when placing the magnets because they are hard to remove, once adhered.

The magnetics legs are easy to remove. They are also easy to pop into your bag, backpack, or purse. I do wish they sold extra stick-on magnets for different devices, such as a gaming system.  Then, I can use the magnetic legs on multiple devices.

The cooling stand did not come with instructions. I used the website to figure out which way to attach the legs. The circular part goes on the bottom, while the square part (where the magnet is) attaches to the stick-ons.

You can purchase the cooling stand, using the link above. The stand is prime-eligible. The stand comes in multiple colors: blue, white, black, and grey.

Blason Louis French Wine Tasting Campaign Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Affiliate Links.

My Review

I received a Blason Louis French Wine Tasting kit, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. The kit comes with two flacons of wine; information about the wine makers; and information about the wine, including tasting notes and pairings.  The website offers information about food, music, and movie pairings for each wine. Other information includes the wine's history; information about the wine maker, and information about serving temperatures and storage.

Each box also has a theme.

I wanted to try out the wines to improve culturally. When I buy wine, it's usually cheap wine, 9.99 or less. Arbor Mist and Boone Farm are two of my go tos. I recently fell in love with Arbor Mist's Arborita's. I thought the kit was amazing.

First, I liked the flacon concept because if you don't like a particular wine, you are not stuck with a full bottle. You can try and learn about wines before committing to buying a big bottle, you either pour out or pass off on family or friends.

I received the Sancere and the Pommard wines. The Sancere wine comes from the Loire Valley in France, while the Pommard comes from Burgundy. Both wines were stronger wines and not the sweet wines, I usually buy. Both wines pair well with chicken and pork. Both wines are also Pinot Noir (red grape wines). According to Wikipedia, Pinot Noir grapes are associated with Burgundy, France.

More about the  wine and subscriptions

@2017 SVP Tours

The wines are high-end artisian wines with small packaging. The flacons are twist-top, which makes it easier when you can't find a corkscrew. I have lost count of how many wine bottles, I have bought and can't open because I misplaced a corkscrew.

Each month, you can opt into a monthly tasting kit. If you like the wines, you can purchase full bottles online. The company has 1 month, 6 month, and 12 month subscriptions. The plans automatically renew.

The flacons comes in a nice box. You push from the bottom to move the flacons up and out of the box.

Please note, the wine is not delivered to every state. Blason Louis does not deliver to Utah and Hawaii. Someone over 21 has to sign for the package.

Use code perfect chaos to receive a 24.99 box for 4.99.

iEgeek #ElectronicsCleaningGel Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I recieved iEgeek's elecronics cleaning gel, in exchange for honest review. The gel comes in a pack of 5. Each gel comes in a resealable pack in a tub to preserve freshness.

The gel helps remove dust, debris, and other stuff from your electronics. You open the package, pull the gel out, and roll it on your devices. Note: Don't move too slow or the gunk can get lodged in your devices. Also, place the gel back in the package after you are done. The gel does stick to clothes and blankets. The gel took a minute to remove from my clothes and blankets.

When you first pull the gel out the package, it can be a bit sticky and takes a few extra seconds to pull it all out the package. After a few uses, the gel becomes easier to remove from the package.

I used the gel to clean my computer keyboard. It had some debris in keys and corners, I could not clean. The middle circular button in the middle (no idea of its use) had some debris, which the gel cleaned well. Since it works, I can use the gel on my phone, bluetooth keyboards, and kindle. I can also try it on the television. (I do have a small clip of using the gel in the instagram post up above.).

You can purcahse the gel using the link above. The gel is prime-eligible.

Ancord Works FM Radio, Clock, Bluetooth Speaker Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.

I received Ancord Works FM Radio, Clock, and Bluetooth Speaker, in exchange for honest review. The device is part alarm clock (24 hours time. Can not change to 12 hours); Clock; FM Radio, and Bluetooth speaker. The speaker also comes with a micro sd card slot.

The package comes with the device, charging cord, and an aux cord. The speaker is portable and waterproof.

I wanted the device because of the clock, alarm clock, and speaker. I can always use an external clock, separate from phone and kindle. If a device is dead or I forget to turn the ringers on (which has happened), I still am able to wake up and put kids on the bus or run errands on time. For example, this morning, the Ancord works clock and phone alarmed, but kindle did not. Turns out, a kid messed with the do not disturb section and my kindle alarm stayed silent.

First, the clock. The clock is part clock and part alarm clock. The one thing, I found tricky was the settings for the clock and alarm clock. The settings for the clock uses a button at the back of the device and the top buttons, while the alarm settings uses the top buttons only. You have to move quick to set the alarm before it reverts back to clock mode. The alarm works great. The sound is annoying enough to wake up and quickly turn it off. I am not sure if it has a snooze button or not. The clock is on display, even when the bluetooth/radio is turned off. When plugged in and charging, the clock is lit up. When the device is not plugged in, the clock is blacked out.

Second, the device is part bluetooth speaker. The device paired well with my phone and kindle. The sound came in crisp and clear. I have no issues with the bluetooth function. Once you turn it on, it pairs with usually the kindle. When you hit the power button, it makes a noise to let you know the power is on.

Next, the device is part FM radio. I did use the instructions to program the radio but I havent used the feature much. I am not a big radio listener. A few channels did not come in.

You can purchase Ancord Works radio, clock, and speaker using the link above. The radio is prime-eligible.
