One2Try Review: Cave Tools Kabob Set

October 5, 2015

Comments Off on One2Try Review: Cave Tools Kabob Set

cave tools logoDCBanner.jpg

I am a grilling maniac. I toss something on one of my 3 different grill types at a moments notice. It helps keep my house cool to do most of the cooking outside. Here in Southern California, it is easy to grill year round. I decided to make chicken and veggie kabobs with my new grilling tool, Cave Tools Kabob Skewers Rack.  Making kabobs normally takes a lot of time. Chopping the meats and veggies, marinate the meats in a separate bowl, then have to touch the dripping marinated meats to put on the skewers, lots of work. By the time you finish all the prep, you are a mess and you sure don’t feel like eating what you prepared. Now comes a much simpler method to skewer, and grill in quick easy steps.

Barbecue_Kabobs_Skewers_small

Using the Kabob Skewers Rack is a breeze. The rigid flat skewers have a stopper on the end which doubles as a slider to get the cooked foods off the skewer.  Alternating the meats and veggies, you can really pack these flat skewers. They hold a lot!  Once you have the 5 skewers completely loaded, place the rack on the grill then each skewer has a spot on the rack.  The rack is sturdy and makes it easy to turn the kabobs 180 degrees for even cooking. The rack also allowed a wise use of space on my grill while keeping the foods from sticking to the grill grates. The cooking temperature was perfect for making kabobs with the added distance from the flames. They smelled so good!

Prepping, marinating and grilling made simple with Cave Tools Kabob Skewers Rack! My chicken and veggie kabobs came out delicious! Clean up is simple too. The skewers are stainless steel for easy cleaning. The rack itself is compact enough for storage.

My one suggestion – get yourself two! One for chicken, and one for beef or your favorite ingredients. Two will fit on my grill making enough to feed a hungry bunch.

You can purchase Cave Tools Kabob Skewers Rack on Amazon.

Here is a Amazon Coupon discount code to get the Kabob Set at 15% Off: LHWJZQMZ

Get Grilling and make something tasty!

Do you have a guy that is hard to buy for? Or maybe they are very selective about what they want. My hubby is so finicky when it comes to socks and underwear. He likes his comfort and has a fun sense of style.  I have been through too many briefs and sock pairs that he no longer likes to wear. If only he could get new ones each month…..

SYNC to the rescue. Stuff You Need Cheap is a monthly subscription service for guys. How it works: Sign up for a subscription and a monthly box of 3 pairs of either briefs or socks will be delivered right to the door!

Comments Off on Paula’s Choice #MyBestSkin Giveaway – closed

As my age increases, I am noticing significant changes in my facial skin. A few wrinkles but not too bag. I find it crazy that I am still dealing with occasional breakouts. I have never had a regular skincare routine other than washing with a gentle cleanser. I am thrilled to really make a difference in my skin with the help of Paula’s Choice.

Paula’s Choice started it’s mission for great skin care with a commitment to customer advocacy and education. They treat all types of skin care from wrinkles to acne, rosacea and big pores. They are skin experts.

Paula’s Choice was so kind to get me started on a skin care regimen. One of the best features of Paula’s Choice is the customer relation aspect. You can contact them for skincare advice. They are extremely helpful. I started my regimen with Holly who took the time to listen to my skincare needs and choose the products perfect for me. In using the products as directed for a couple weeks, I have noticed an improvement in my skin tone and my breakouts are much fewer. I did have a little intense skin reaction to one of the products and chatting with Isabel at customer service, she was able to determine which product was giving me the problem. With her expert advice, we found out I needed to cut back on using one product to an every other day use. It worked! I am loving the products and the results are starting to be seen. It may take a few more weeks to really see the difference , but for now there is definitely an improvement. If ever I have a question I can contact them by phone or I can browse the Expert Advice section on the site. It is filled with tips and more!

My skin care products included many from the RESIST line. The RESIST Perfectly Balanced Foaming Cleanser leaves my skin refreshed and super clean. I follow it with the RESIST Advanced Replenishing Toner.

All of these work together along with a few other moisturizers and a Skin Perfecting BHA liquid for #MyBestSkin.

Let There Be Light! OxyLED Dimmable Desk Lamp

November 25, 2014

Comments Off on Let There Be Light! OxyLED Dimmable Desk Lamp

logo1

DCBanner.jpg

I recently visited a very nice hotel with beautiful room décor. I fell in love with a desk lamp. The desk lamp was a touch control LED lamp with a sleek design. I had to have one. I promptly searched the internet for that brand lamp and found the object of my desire.

Choke….my beloved lamp was more than $400! Deflated, I had to settle for my LED bulb clip on lamp. Alas the good folks at HisGadget must have known I was still searching for my lighting treasure.

Courtesy of HisGadget, they sent me an incredible LED desk lamp. The OxyLED T120 Dimmable Eye-Care LED Desk Lamp with Cool & Warm Color Light – Professional Reading Lamp is just what I was looking for and then some. This stylish lamp provides two color outputs to ease eye strain. I like the Touch controls for turning on the lamp. With a simple touch you can change your lamp color preference. Once you are in the color light you like, you can easily dim that color a few grades by pressing around the ring of the power button. The light holds steady without any flicker plus it fills my desk with a nice wide area of light! The stylish look fits my desk without taking too much room. I prefer the warm color most of the time.

Here is the light difference. Notice how much brighter the one of the left is. It has a bluish tint while the right has a warmer yellowish tint.

20141125_14151320141125_141532

The OxyLED Desk Lamp will provide over 25,000 hours of full lumen output, a 10 year life span. It comes with a 3 year warranty. It saves money too because it uses very little watts.

Looking for a very useful gift for the Holidays? Consider getting someone an OxyLED T120 Dimmable Eye-Care LED Desk Lamp with Cool & Warm Color Light – Professional Reading Lamp. The price will astonish you. The list price is $149.99 but you can save 60% right now. The affordable price is just $59.99 on Amazon!  The lamp is just what any student, reader, desk hugger, would love to have.

I am thrilled with this lighting beauty! I can spend even more hours reading and at my computer now. (sorry, housework has to wait)

Next Issue: Best Digital Magazines Giveaway – closed

Comments Off on Next Issue: Best Digital Magazines Giveaway – closed

DCBanner

With all the technology we have at our fingertips these days, it is no surprise that paper magazines are going the way of the dodo.

Now it is easier than ever to enjoy your favorite magazines on your electronic devices. Next Issue makes it a breeze to read anytime, anywhere. As they say it is ” An Entire Newsstand at Your Fingertips”

I was introduced to Next Issue while attending BlogHer 14 this past summer. I knew about the company from advertisements I viewed in magazines. Courtesy of Next Issue, I was provided a complimentary 3 month Premium membership. The Unlimited Premium level includes 145 magazine titles to choose from and they are always adding more titles! Seriously…you can have 1 to 145 magazines on your device for a reasonable low price of $14.99 per month. If you get all 145 – that is a lot of reading without any paper waste! It is the future of magazines!

I personally ordered the Unlimited Basic plan which provides access to 135 magazines for a low price of just $9.99 per month. On my device, I currently have more than 35 titles out of the 135. There are so many more to choose from. One account can have access on 4 devices. My hubby has his own titles he likes to read. They are all part of our library. It is easy to navigate the titles and you can set it for automatic downloading of each monthly title. It can take a while to download that way, if you have a lot of magazine selections all coming in at the same time. I prefer to manually download the magazines one at a time. You even have access to back issues!

Do the math on your subscription savings. The average paper magazine is 12.99 per year. If I had 35 x 12.99 = $450+. Now if you chose all 135 magazines…you can get them for just $9.99 per month equaling $119+ for the entire year! That is an amazing savings!

You can download any of your titles to your device for reading when you are not connected to wifi. I filled up my iPad with several mag downloads for a recent airplane trip. It was better than carrying a bunch of magazines or paying high prices at the airport.

Next Issue is available on the most popular tablets, Apple iPad and iPhone, Android tablets and Windows 8 PC and tablets.

Some features include:

· “All you can eat” model lets users customize their libraries and discover new content all within one app

· Beautiful interface brings the joy of a physical newsstand to the palm of your hand

· “Automatic download” feature ensures the latest issue of your favorite magazine is downloaded upon opening the app

· One account can be shared over four devices, making it the most cost effective way for a family to explore the magazines they love

· Unique digital-only features available on various titles – including downloadable playlists, embedded videos and extended photo slideshows

· Email pages to friends and family to share favorite articles, new recipes or style inspiration

Next Issue is my favorite app!

BlueAvocado (re)zip Bags Giveaway – closed

April 2, 2014

Comments Off on BlueAvocado (re)zip Bags Giveaway – closed

DCBanner

BA logo

What do you (re)zip? I am excited about BlueAvocado bags. I was introduced to these little gems recently. This is one of the most useful green ideas I have seen in a long time. BlueAvocado (re)zip bags are very handy.

The (re)zip bags come in a variety of sizes. What makes them so special is they can be used over and over again!

They are:

Reusable

Washable

Durable

Lead Free

The (re)zip reusable storage bags can replace plastic bags in lunches. Replacing plastic bags helps reduce waste. The lunch bag has a zipper on top, is see through and made of FDA-Grade Peva film. The generous size makes it perfect for sandwiches, veggies or other munchies. After use, it is simple to clean the (re)zip bag. They are top shelf dishwasher washable! Let them air dry to be ready for the next use.

BA bag

The BlueAvocado (re)zip bags come in a nice assortment of sizes. TSA travel size, bulk storage size, snack size, lunch sleeves and more. They come in handy for lots of things! I have been using a large travel bag for my travel cosmetic bag. I like it because it can be washed! No more worrying about something getting messy inside. My husband loves the sandwich bag size. He carries some healthy munchies in his backpack. Because it is a reusable bag, he remembers to bring it home for refilling. Using the (re)zip bags has saved money by bringing his own lunch and by not having to buy more plastic bags! I can’t wait to see just how long they last! By using a (re)zip lunch bag just twice weekly – it can save 100 + disposable bags per year! Think of the cost savings and the planet savings.

Another awesome BlueAvocado product I am loving is the (eco) hip pod collapsible bag. It collapses in to a small little pouch but opens up to a handy shopping carryall. It can hold up to 20 pounds. The (eco) hip pod is made from 50% post consumer recycled bottle fabric. Wow that is keeping more waste from hitting the landfills. BlueAvocado is all about reducing and reusing! The very useful (eco) hip pod comes in 5 colors. I have the Red microdot and it is so cute. The compact size and the light weight makes it easy to keep in my purse. I have used it on several occasions and it really holds a lot. I wish I had about 3 more!

You can order these helpful bags from BlueAvocado online. The prices are reasonable and think of the plastic bag cost savings.
