One2Try Review – Band Workout Poster

Comments Off on One2Try Review – Band Workout Poster

DCBanner.jpg

I have a set of exercise bands that came with no instructions. I have been looking online for different exercises to do. Having all these listed on one convenient poster is ideal!

The Women’s Resistance Band Exercises poster is printed on heavy quality paper. It measures 19″x27″. It is a good size for hanging on a door or wall near my exercise equipment. I do not have a huge home gym, just a small space with an exercise bike and room for my exercise bands plus stretching. This poster is hanging close by where I can see and get ideas for the next exercise.

I like how they have categorized the exercises. The sheet shows many exercise for each part of the body. The picture represents the correct way to do the exercise. There is no written description, but if I needed to look it up on the internet, the name is clearly stated.

The poster is full color and easy to read. Having these ideas lets me be flexible in my home workout.

The quality is good and the variety of shown exercises is fantastic!

One2Try Review – Reusable Lunch Bag

October 18, 2016

Comments Off on One2Try Review – Reusable Lunch Bag

DCBanner.jpg

Super cute lunch bag alert! This insulated Lunch Bag features the fabric on the outside with a thermal lining on the inside.

I like the red and white cute stripe material. The handles are comfortable to hold. The top is easily opened and it has a Velcro closure to keep it shut. Another nice feature is the bag is able to fold small and then secures with the Velcro strap.

There is a lot of room is this bag. I can fit a few lunch containers plus water bottles. There is a front pocket ideal for storing utensils and napkins. It does a decent job of keeping things cool when using with an ice pack. I like the bottom being flat. It stays upright for filling without falling over.

I think it loses some of the thermal temperature control because the top is open. A zippered closure would have been better. I like using this bag of having drinks or small snacks while traveling.

Overall this is a well made lunch bag. It is a nice size for small lunches or snacks. Being reusable means I can use this over and over!

One2Try Review – iPhone 6S Plus Case

October 18, 2016

Comments Off on One2Try Review – iPhone 6S Plus Case

I have many cases to protect my iPhone. I like changing them every now and then for color and variety.

This Dual Shield Shock Absorbing Case features an inner shock absorbing case with an outer hard plastic cover. The rose gold color is very pretty.

It was easy to install. I had to take the two pieces apart to install the inner case first, then the outer case snapped over the black section. I like the button covers on the side. All the openings are in the proper location and they are well finished with smooth edges all around.

I am not particularly fond of the black color but it is very protective. It has a lip that extends to the front to keep the phone face off surfaces.

It does come in other outer shell colors.  Overall this is a good case. It is easy to install and it protects.

One2Try Review – Green Earth Products

October 17, 2016

Comments Off on One2Try Review – Green Earth Products

I like having large bags available. Green Earth Laundry Bags come in a 3 pack. These are very generous size bags!

Each bag measures 28″x36″. This can hold a lot of laundry! Maybe you have students in college that bring laundry home? With these generous oversize bags, they can hold all the dirty clothes.

I actually like these bags for storage. The size is large enough to store some winter blankets and other linens when not in use. The top is closed by a drawstring and a cord lock. The bags are made of high quality 100% cotton. They are machine washable! Another good idea is using these for holiday “Santa” sacks. A hard to wrap oversize present can be placed in one of these bags…add a ribbon and it is done! These would also be fantastic for painting designs on or customizing.

They are well sewn and durable. I like getting the 3 laundry bags in the pack, it makes them economical.

 

Green Earth Reusable Thermal Bag – This bag is huge! Inside is a fully lined thermal material. This bag is handy for keeping in the car for grocery shopping. It will hold a lot of frozen foods. It can also be used for hot foods for a picnic or family outing.

The bag has strong should straps and the bottom opens to make a stable base. The top closes with a zipper keeping the cold or hot temperature controlled. The sizing is generous! This is good for a picnic or a potluck dinner.

It looks nice too. The beige fabric is accented with a chocolate brown color piping, bottom panel and the straps.

The products from Green Earth are well made and built to last!

One2Try Review – Jute Storage Basket

October 17, 2016

Comments Off on One2Try Review – Jute Storage Basket

I like to be organized. I also like to spoil my dogs with too many toys. When I spotted this Jute Storage Basket with the word “Toys” on it, I knew this would be great for their collection of doggie toys.

The basket comes folded flat. It is quick to open to a good size basket. It measures 20 inches long and 12 inches wide. The depth is 11 inches. My dogs can reach in the basket to find what they want to play with. Before I knew it, all the toys were all over the floor again. If only I could train them to put them back.

The jute material is lined with a plastic inside for support and durability. It stays open pretty sturdy! The side handles are strong enough to carry this from room to room. If the bin is not needed, it folds flat again. I like the natural beige coloring of the jute.

This would also be fun for making a Christmas decoration. Fill it with fancy wrapped empty boxes and maybe a teddy bear or doll. I am planning on doing that!

This is handy for all sorts of storage. The Toys is printed only on one side, so the other is plain if needing to face this side out. The quality is good, the size is generous. I am happy to use this for storage and my decorating idea.

One2Try Review – Crystal Heart Necklace

October 14, 2016

Comments Off on One2Try Review – Crystal Heart Necklace

Remember when a famous ship movie came out and we all wanted the Heart of the Ocean necklaces? This Crystal Purple Heart Necklace is equally as dazzling. The beautiful shape and color are elegant and mesmerizing.

I adore crystal jewelry. This necklace is a lovely design featuring a huge crystal heart. The Swarovski Elements crystal is cut beautifully to catch the light from all different angles. The color varies from purple to blue depending on how you look at it. The purple is a gorgeous lavender color which turns into a topaz shade of blue. No matter which way you see it, the color pops. The size of the heart crystal is impressive too. It measures just about 3/4 inches across. It is a 3D cut with an interesting point in the center.

Hanging from a double heart setting, the crystal sits at the neck base. This is a good length for nice visibility when wearing. I enjoy wearing this necklace with every day casual looks. It could easily be worn with much dressier fashions too.

The color and sparkle is dazzling. The chain is pretty nice too. I love how it all comes together with the double heart setting. Truly a romantic necklace of exceptional quality.

One2Try Review – White Opal Black Ring

October 14, 2016

Comments Off on One2Try Review – White Opal Black Ring

Oohhhh Spooky! This black opal ring is just what I need for Halloween. It looks particularly bewitching. Of course it can be worn any time but having this for Halloween is a special treat.

The band is coated in a black gold finish. This looks amazing with the dazzling opal in the center. I like the additional swirl setting across the opal stone. On each side of the opal are smaller clear crystals. The setting is unique and eye catching.

The opal sparkles brilliantly. There is a lot of iridescent flakes inside. I like how they shaped the opal, as a cat eye cut. It looks well balanced with the round crystals. The swirl setting is securely holding the stones in place.

The black coating is super shiny with a gold tint to the deep black color. I hope the finish lasts. It looks durable. I am sure this is not a real opal and the crystals are cubic zirconia. For being a costume piece of jewelry, this is a lovely ring.

The colors are unique. The style is fashionable. This ring is certainly fun to wear.

One2Try Review – Eye Love Sunglasses

October 14, 2016

Comments Off on One2Try Review – Eye Love Sunglasses

It stays sunny in Southern California year round. Wearing sunglasses is a must especially on super bright summer days. The sunglasses from Eye Love are stylish and protective.

The Brown Wayfarer Style is gorgeous! The tortoise shell finish is accented with an inner golden yellow color. The lens color is a brown tint to match the frames. I like the classic shape. The size is ideal for a female face. The ear pieces are long and I had to warm them to adjust for a better fit. I like the polarized lens for clarity plus they offer UV blocking protection.

Another style – the Women’s Designer come in a black frame with a unique ivory color accent on the ear piece. This frame style offers more eye coverage with a long and round bottom frame. The lens color is a deep gray which offers a nice amount of shade. They are polarized plus contain the UV blocking properties. They look fabulous when wearing, very feminine.

The quality of the Eye Love glasses is superb. It is hard to believe the high quality for such a reasonable price. They are built well with strong hinges. The fashionable look makes these a joy to wear with any style.

I like both styles and enjoy switching them out on different days. They are lightweight and protective. Great sunglasses.

One2Try Review – Happy Christmas Reindeer Necklace

October 12, 2016

Comments Off on One2Try Review – Happy Christmas Reindeer Necklace

Ho Ho Ho – it is almost that time again. I love holiday jewelry. This Reindeer Necklace is gorgeous.

The delicate reindeer shape is highlighted with a stunning blue Swarovski Crystal. The antlers reach from the top and are shiny polished. There are ears on the side which contain clear crystals. The focal point crystal is a light blue oval cut crystal. I adore the cut of the crystal, it has many angles to catch the light. It certainly is dazzling.

The overall size measures just about an inch from the tip of the antler to the bottom of the crystal. The unique setting hangs at a slight angle making it even more interesting. The crystal is well set in the highly polished setting. It looks amazing up close.

It is a wonderful wintery necklace. The blue color reminds me of cool winter weather. This reindeer necklace would make a wonderful gift.

One2Try Review – Dog Theme Engraved Wood Rolling Pin

October 12, 2016

Comments Off on One2Try Review – Dog Theme Engraved Wood Rolling Pin

I frequently make my own doggy treats. I have a peanut butter biscuit recipe that my dogs gobble up. Now I can add a special dog theme touch to the dough with this Dog Engraved Wood Rolling Pin.

This rolling pin is unlike any I have seen before. The wood surface is engraved with a variety of dog cutouts. There are dogs, small paws, large paws, and bones all around the entire rolling pin surface. It is very pretty too look at. The cutouts leave an imprint on the dough.

I thought it would stick too much to the dough but it only needed the usual flour dusting to prevent sticking. The shapes show up on the dough but they are pretty faint. It was hard to see them in the process and in the finished product. Still it was a joy to add a bone theme to biscuit making.

It rolls smoothly and is easy to clean by hand washing only.

For any dog lover, this dog rolling pin is a nice touch! Package it with some biscuit making supplies and it would make a lovely gift.
