SOI Handbag/Purse Light with Automatic Sensor Review

Published by:

SOI1

I had the chance to host a “What’s in Your Purse? Party” thanks to Tryazon and SOI, with the collaboration of Whoosh! and some great eye pads from a brand called Amirose.

If you, like me, have trouble finding things in your purse, at night but also during the day as some bags can be big and for some reason they seems “eating” anything you put in it, then SOI may be a product you will find really interesting.

It was invented by two college guys who, during a concert, noticed how women started to go crazy while looking for things in their purses…ok maybe not crazy, I added that as I know I do look crazy and frustrated when I search for 20 minutes for something in my purse before ending up getting everything out of my purse to find what I was looking for!

There is a nice video on Youtube (CLICK HERE!) that show how does it works, but is really quite simple and intuitive: the SOI has an automatic sensor so that when you open your purse and dig in your purse, the light turns on and you can clearly see what’s in it and easily find anything you are looking for. It can actually have other uses, like a bathroom light for example, but I’ve been using it for a week now and I really like it’s purpose as a purse light.

It’s available on AMAZON (CLICK HERE!) at a discounted price and with a 2 days free shipping if you have Prime, but watch out as it keep going on out of stock so if you see it, just get it: it has over 60 reviews and most of them are 5 stars.

I was lucky enough to get one for free to review and give one away during the party I did in my house (Nicole…you are welcome :D), and of course that was a great excuse to order pizza and eat brownies !

Do you have trouble finding things in your purse? Do you own or know someone who own a SOI light? What do you think about it? Feel free to let me know in your comments and check the pics I took at the party, posted on our Facebook page (CLICK HERE!)

AdoramaPix Hexagon Metal Print Review: Top Notch Quality

Published by:

13063907_10153550939738461_1693368413_o

You may have already read my article about the AdormaPix Coupon Code to get 25% off on the Hexagon Metal Prints (if not CLICK HERE!) and well I got the chance to actually review one of them, size 9.5″ x 11″. I choose one of my daughter pics from a phototshoot done by a very talented friend of mine, so that the quality of the pic was a good one to be printed that size.
I had few questions before ordering and so I contacted their support and they were nice and answered pretty fast as well. The website is very user friendly: there are few categories in the top menu and when you go over it with the mouse, it will open the different options for each category, or you can just click on the main category to go to a page with all the options as well.
The Hexagon Metal prints can be found under the category WALL DECOR. They actually have so many shapes and sizes, from very small, 8″ x 8″, to medium and big size, 36″ x 36″ and 30″ x 40″. Among the shapes, they also have a heart one that will definitely be the next one I’ll order as soon as I can get a decent family picture šŸ˜€

Metal prints are more durable than regular print and the photo is infused directly into the metal print, which means it’s also gonna be waterproof, scratch-resistant, dry-erasable and easy to clean.
AdoramaPix offers also different customization options: no fixture, easel, magnet, floating mount or pedestal display; glossy white, white satin, glossy silver and silver satin finish.
I choose the easel and glossy white options.

Packing was really good and complete with EVERYTHING I needed (see the gallery pics below). Quality really left me speechless: I love regular prints but this is really top notch quality and is also a great gift idea (grandma you know what you will get for Christmas!), its really thin and light.
I took few pics, but really I think the pictures don’t make enough justice to quality of the print. I hope you will enjoy them and let me know what you think about them if you will order them and don’t forget to use the Coupon Code PXHEXMTL25 at the checkout to save 25% (expires June 15 2016).

LimitStyle Lightning Saver (Red 4-Pack) Review

Published by:

41b3pYehpOL


iPhone cables are bad. No matter if you buy them Apple branded or any other brand. They always end up breaking them and this cheap product can actually save you tons of money as really prevent the cable from breaking. I don’t understand why nobody just make better cables, but until someone actually do, this will do!
May take a while to arrive as when I ordered, there was no prime option, so it took longer than 2 days, but beside that the product works and is easy to put it on the cable and to take it off. Save money! If you own an iPhone or iPad and have troubles with the cables breaking often, check this LimitStyle Lightning Saver, click here to buy or read more reviews.


I got this product for a discounted price for my honest review. #LightningSaver

Country Crock: Churn Style Review Influenster Voxbox

I got selected to receive for FREE (for testing purpose) the Influenster VoxBox of Country Crock, and I received Churn Style variety.

I really enjoyed receiving this product, as I love to cook and I really used it to make many meals and snacks. It has a rich taste, and I like it even on plain toasted bread. Sometimes I add some marmalade on top (berries is my favorite!).

It tasted great on top of some baked sweet potatoes and the cod I cooked with it and some herbs, tasted delicious. No need to add salt, but you can always add herbs like I did and even some spices.

I used the Country Crock: Churn Style, also to cook a thin steak and some smashed potatoes. Everything was very tasty, fast and easy to make. Quick meal.

When we occasionally decide to go BIG, we cook some crazy good stuff like the stuffed burger (swiss cheese and onion) wrapped in bacon and cooked in some Country Crock: Churn Style

Silicone Bibs from Baby Go-Green

Published by:

siliconebib1

If you have a baby like mine that just can’t avoid making a huge mess anytime she eat something, this silicone bib are a great choice!
She still make a huge mess but if she spit the food, it get caught by the bib instead of falling on her knees or clothes, and it really take less than a minute to just clean the bib. Maybe for younger baby, a cotton bib is still the preferred one to use, but for toddlers I think this is a better choice that will avoid you to do laundry just to clean all the dirty bibs. It’s pretty big so cover her shirt as well, so even that is safe from all the mess she does with the food!

LED Flashlight Koozie Beverage Cooler Review

Published by:

what the package included


Who likes warm beer? That’s right, no one! Then this Koozie cooler set is for you!

This cooler does a decent job of keeping the beer cool, but the reason I really like it is that my hand doesn’t get cold holding the beer.

On getting the package I opened it up and there’s a small pouch closed with strings, I thought ‘oh neat, a carrying case’. I looked inside and first thing that falls out was a led flashlight. The end of it looks funny, but it’s actually a bottle opener!
Next two were these little cozies, one for a beer bottle and the other for small/thin cans like a redbull.

First, both the big cozy and the led came with charged batteries and ready to go. It did take a few seconds to figure out how to turn on the lights on the cozy, as honestly we missed the button even if clearly says “On/Off”, and once we did and turned it on, it was a little show in my bottle. It flips through 3 different lights and the bottle really shows the light and is a neat effect.

All in all, its a neat little package of things that look pretty and are useful too. So I would recommend this to anyone who doesn’t drink their beer fast enough, I mean who like cold beer :)

TempoScanĀ® Infrared Thermometer for Body and Surface Review

Published by:

temposcan1

I got the chance to buy the TempoScanĀ® Non-contact High Accuracy Infrared Thermometer for Body and Surface from Orksun, for a discounted price in exchange for my honest review and I was really curious about it even if I didn’t really expect it to be a quality product.

If wasn’t for the discount, I wouldn’t probably buy such product online, for the fear of it being some cheap made in China product; something you can’t really tell just from looking at pictures online.
Luckily the product was all the opposite of what I though: nice box, solid product, detailed instructions manual, mini bag and even the batteries included!

I am a big fan of Star Trek and I was so excited to try it so I could feel like one of the Star Trek doctors for a minute and start scanning things around!
* WATCH OUT!! You may get addicted and start checking the temperature of your meals, yourself, and basically everything around you just for fun!

Unluckily I had the chance to test it on real fever: I was feeling crappy and the Orkut temposcan confirmed my 38.5…yeah I’m european and just love that I don’t need to convert to Celsius on Google anymore to understand if I have a fever, but for the Americans who don’t like Celsius, you can switch easily, just follow the easy instructions that come with the product, don’t just press tons of buttons hoping will change šŸ˜€

Primed4U Novelty Series Bluetooth Wireless Headset Review

Published by:

content

I received the Primed4U Novelty Series Bluetooth Wireless Headset at a discounted price in exchange for my honest review and if you have been reading few of my past reviews, you know that giving me a product for free or at a discount, doesn’t mean I’m gonna leave a positive review…and this is one of those cases!

Overall I’m satisfied with these Bluetooth headphones because they offer the freedom from having your ears tied to your phone with a cable and allow simple commands to be used from the headset itself, but the cons I listed below, are kinda a deal breaker for those who buy them to use them to actually make calls. I honestly use them only to listen to music or when watching series TV/movies, and for this purpose they are great. I tried however to make a phone call and a Skype call and my friends couldn’t hear me very well.

Here a recap of my PROs and CONs about this product

Pros:
-Controls: I love this part of these. Phone in pocket and I can change volume, next and previous songs, mute and accepting calls with out pulling out my phone. There’s even a computer voice that tells you what’s going on like ‘The next song’ and such.
-Micro usb charging cable: More and more have gone to this but still good to know you can use one of your multitude of cables aready to charge it.
-Battery life: Charges to full really fast and lasts up to 6 hrs on a charge and days if you’re not using them.
-Fitment: They fit in nicely and don’t come loose. They also come with different ends if the stock ones don’t fit your ears.
-Audio quality: Better than what earbuds usually come with phones but won’t compete with more expensive wired headphones.

Cons:
– Call quality: You may here the caller fine but since the mic is in the earbud itself, they may have trouble hearing you.
– Build quality: Harder plastic is ok but the multifunction button feels very cheap and I don’t know how long it might last.
– Kind of minor but they stick out from your ears a decent amount but it doesn’t affect it staying in your ear at all.

Conclusion: they are my preferred headphones for when I use the treadmill but if I have to make a call, I still prefer my other ones that have a mic closer to my mouth, so 3 stars because the product is nice, as well as the design and the colors available, but I wouldn’t really suggest it to those that want a headphones set to make calls.

Valentina Paris Beautiful Hand Painted Wine Glasses Review

Published by:

valeparis

I had the luck to purchase the Valentina Paris Hand Painted Wine Glasses set of 2, at a discounted price in exchange for my honest review, and trust me when I say that if you love stylish kitchenware, and wine of course, this set is a MUST in your kitchen!

First of all, the package arrived very well wrapped, so if you should get a broken one it would be really bad luck as they are packaged with extra care, and if you do get unlucky, just contact the seller or Amazon and they will surely send you a new set.

The wine glasses are bigger than the usual, and someone actually listed that as a CON on a review…I’m still trying to figure it out how that can be CON, as I believe that more wine = more awesome!
The feature I like the most is of course the beautiful hand painted design as it makes each individual wine glass unique, even if the colors and lines may match and be the same in every glass, I think that when you hand paint something, no piece is really exactly the same.

The colors seems too light to be caught on camera (at least with iPhone camera), but they are mostly blue, red, yellow, gold. Luckily on Amazon there are pictures taken by PRO and you can get a better idea of what they look like in person.

They make a great gift for pretty much anybody as even if you aren’t much of a drinker, they make a cool display in the house; I think they can be considerate a decorative glass as well (you can fill them with rocks or marbles and a tea candle or water and a tea candle to make a romantic atmosphere.

Remember to hand wash them to avoid ruining the design. I hand washed them few times until now and no issue with the design at all.
