Hello friends, have you seen any of those funny videos showing someone texting and walking only to fall or bump into something?  What about a video showing someone texting in the bitter cold and their fingers turning blue? Well my son and his iPhone are inseparable, as is the case with most young adults but trust me, they definitely don’t want frost bitten fingers. I told him that if he just had to text outdoors then try wearing a pair of these Smart Tech Gloves.

SleeKeys iPad Keyboard Review and Giveaway

Disclosure: I received this product in order to facilitate the review, however, opinions are 100% my own.

SleeKeys iPad keyboard Review & Giveaway

Hello friends, before we begin, let me tell you that I have an iPad, not an iPad Air which meant that I didn’t thoroughly read all the requirements before signing up for the campaign. However, just because it didn’t fit my iPad perfectly, it did work perfectly with my iPad. So now that is out of the way, let’s get on with the review of this NEW INVENTION by Sleek Tech!


SleeKeys Product Review AVI I really wanted to try the Sleekeys Keyboard by Sleek Tech because as a “boomer” I still love the feel of a qwerty keyboard especially if it has large keys, and this one definitely did not disappoint.

This keyboard is awesome because it does not require batteries, an electrical cord or even a Bluetooth setting. It’s ¼ inch and only weighs 3.5 oz which is great because the last thing I need is to add more heavy gadgets into my already overloaded tote bag. The magnets keeps the keyboard perfectly aligned so that your wrists can be placed at a comfortable angle.

A soggy Sunday made for a perfect day to test out the SleeKeys Keyboard and with 2 stand positions I was able to work lounging on the sofa or at the kitchen table with ease.

SleeKeys Product Review

If you are looking for an keyboard attachment for your iPad Air, iPad Air 1 or iPad 5 go to and check out the SleeKeys Case/Keyboard because it’s great for working at home or on-the-go.

Covering Up Against the Cold

Covering Up Against the Cold – #loveseatcover12 #armchaircover12

Hello friends and welcome to winter.  In the Northeast it’s time to baton down the hatches and cover up or put away the outdoor furniture. Unfortunately, our garage is filled to the gill with the riding lawn mower, snow blower, cushions, umbrellas and pool supplies so I can’t put any more items inside including our cars!

The deck cushions are all neatly packed and put away, but I have to keep a few pieces of deck furniture out so it’s important to have it covered in order to prevent damage during the winter.

Astor Chair Covers Review


These Astor premium covers from are sized to fit chairs up to 38″x33.5″ and loveseats 58″x32.5″ and as you can see they fit both of mine perfectly.  Each has an adjustable elasticized hem and a click buckle strap to keep the wind from blowing them off.

The Astor premium covers are easy to put on and take off, have sturdy, padded handles and comes with a 2 Year Warranty against damage by dry rot, sun exposure, mold or mildew. Your lounge or patio chair will come out from under the cover looking just as good as it did when it went in!

Happy New Year ~ Happy New You!


Now You Can See It with Mr. Beams!

If your house is like ours, there is at least one area that is totally dark with no light switch or a lamp, perhaps it’s a hallway or the stairs.  We keep the vacuum in a small cubbie in the basement and when the boys were younger they hated going in there to get it because it was too dark. 

If we had these Mr. Beams Stick Anywhere Task Lights there would have been no excuse because these high illumination lights really brightens up the area.

Mr. Beams Task Light Review

Mr. Beams lights are bright, battery operated LEDs that provide safety and security at an affordable price.  They can be installed anywhere with heavy duty double sided tape, velcro or two screws (not included).  They are also great for kitchen cabinets, inside toy boxes, closets and shelves.

Review Weekend 079

These motion sensors lights have a range of 10-15 ft. and can be set to stay on from  20 to 60 seconds.  Mr. Beams Stick Anywhere Task Lights need 4 – AA batteries and only illuminate in the dark so they would be good for a hallway, stairway or as a nightlight in the bathroom.  Mr. Beams also has a variety of other energy efficient wireless LED lights which can be ordered today to arrive quickly in time for the holidays.

InstaNatural Argan Oil Hair Mask

When my sons were toddlers they would cry like crazy every time their father would cut their hair.  Thankfully, those days are gone forever, and now they are more than eager to either have him cut it or they’ll do it themselves.  Despite the tears, it did help us save a lot of money because we never had to take them to a Barbershop.

Now that they are older and can cut their own hair, they do know that grooming involves more than just cutting, washing and drying it.  To maintain a healthy head of hair and keep it looking good, they need to use a a good moisturizer.  InstaNatural Argan Oil Hair Mask is a product they both have used several times a week.

Argan Oil Hair Mask

The InstaNatural Argan Oil Hair Mask is a deep conditioning treatment that helps to keep their hair moisturized and healthy.  InstaNatural Argan Oil Hair Mask has a pleasant smell because it contains Argan Oil, Coconut Oil, Amino Acid Complex, Shea Butter and Vitamin B5, all ingredients that work together to nourish and moisturize the hair. 

Argan Oil Hair Mask

Tayair likes to put just a little of the InstaNatural Argan Oil Hair Mask on his hair before showering.  First he rubs it through his hair, massaging it into his scalp, then waits 10 minutes before showering to rinse it  out.  However, it can also be used as a daily conditioner and as you can see, it gives his hair a nice shine without any heavy residue.

If InstaNatural Argan Oil Hair Mask is a hair care product that you or someone in the family might like,  it can be ordered and quick shipped directly from

Limm iPhone Armband Review

Hello friends,

I don’t know about you, but when it comes to exercise I have to admit that I don’t get enough of it.  I don’t run or jog but I do like to walk both outdoors, weather permitting and in the evenings on my elliptical, energy permitting – lol.  

However, my favorite exercise of all times is working outside in the yard.  During this time of the year hubby and I spend our Sunday afternoons outside doing yard work. He mows the lawn, trims and edges the walkway, while I cut back the Spring and Summer foliage and pull those weeds which never seem to stop growing!

Limm iPhone Armband

Autumn is the best time of the year to work outside because it’s not too hot nor too cold, and listening to music makes it even more enjoyable.  While hubby rides the lawnmower, he is listening to music from an iPhone in his pocket and headphones on his ears.  

While I trim trees and hedges I’m listening to music with an iPhone nestled securely in a Limm iPhone Armband with buds in my ears.  The Limm iPhone Armband keeps the iPhone safe and secure with an adjustable and stretchable strap that doesn’t interfere with my arm movements.

Limm Iphone Armband

The Limm iPhone Armband is made of a material that keeps the phone protected from sweat and has a built in pocket to hold a single key, so if you are out for a run or walk, just tuck your house, desk or car key inside.  If your exercise regiment also includes working outdoors and you want to listen to music while you work, try this Limm iPhone Armband, which would also make for a great stocking stuffer, you can order one today from

100% Natural Konjac Facial Sponge

Hello friends,


as you know, I am always on the look out for beauty products that are not only made of natural ingredients but are also non-irritating to my skin.  I remember using puffs and scrubbers when I was younger, but now I tend to shy away from them because they can be too harsh for my face.  

I recently ordered this pureSOL 100% Natural Konjac Facial Sponge from Amazon and my first impression was one of concern because it was very hard.  However, after soaking it for a few minutes in the sink it became fully soft.

Soaked in the sink for a few minutes turned this hard sponge into a very soft one.

softened in water

pureSOL Konjac Facial Sponge is 100% natural and eco-friendly, free of parabens, sulphates & chemicals, is biodegradable, cruelty free and vegan.

I only needed to use a small amount of my favorite facial cleanser and along with the pureSOL sponge it cleaned my face gently with no irritation.

EatSmart Precision MaxView Digital Bathroom Scale


Hello friends,

well it has been a little over two weeks since I started my weight loss journey and am proud to report that I am down 4 lbs already – Yay me!  I’m not one who likes to weigh in every day even if it’s thought to be more of a motivator if you do.

Product Review - EatSmart

We keep our bathroom scale downstairs in the powder room which is another reason why I don’t step on it daily – “out of sight – out of mind”   Now that we have the Eat Smart Precision MaxView Digital Scale I am more inclined to do so not only because it’s so precise, but because it has a large LCD display that I can read without my glasses.

Product Review - EatSmart

I let Tayair try out the scale first and was shocked to see that since his surgery he had lost 8 lbs, but was more shocked when I stepped on it and realized that I must have found them!  That is definitely more of a reason to put down the wine and bread and pick up the dumbbells and jump rope.

Product Review - EatSmart

I like this EatSmart Precision MaxView Bathroom Scale and have decided to move it upstairs into our bathroom as more of an incentive to reach my goal weight before my 53rd birthday on the 20th.

Product Review - EatSmart

 The EatSmart Precision ViewMax Bathroom Scale has a 400 lb capacity, and comes with 2 year Guarantee.  The scale requires 2 AAA batteries which are included and it was ordered and shipped quickly from

What motivates you to keep your weight in check?

The Amazing Miracle Cleanse

Hello friends,

most of you know that hubby was diagnosed with small intestinal cancer for which he had surgery on March 31st.  His last two appointments have shown no signs of it, but he will still need to have blood tests taken every few months.

He actually started having digestive problems at the age of 45, hence the annual colonoscopies before the cancer was detected.  However, even now with the removal of it he still experiences bowel problems.  

Varies laxatives, both prescribed and over the counter fill our medicine cabinet but nothing seems to work all the time.  He eats plenty of fruits and veggies, very little to no red meat and is back to exercising, however, the problems still exists.  

Now that I’ve the opportunity to order Green Tree Life Sciences “The Amazing Miracle Cleanse” from, I’m hoping it might actually be the miracle cleanse that works. This all natural detox and colon cleanse dietary supplement is supposed to provide results in 12-24 hours to those suffering from constipation, gas and bloating.

The Amazing Miracle Cleanse  

The Amazing Miracle Cleanse can be taken as needed or as a 15-day cleanse detoxification when taking 2 capsules a day for 2 weeks. I’ll check with hubby to see if he wants to give it a try, who knows, this just might be just what his colon needs.  If he does and it works, I’ll come back to this post with the results.
