One2Try Review – Riwbox LED Bluetooth Headphones

October 12, 2016

1 Comment

I am obsessed with LED stuff. My hubby calls me the LED Queen. Something about the changing colors makes me happy. This set of Riwbox Folding Wireless LED headphones features an LED dancing color panel on the side of each earpiece.

Okay so I can’t really see it when wearing them, unless I am looking in a mirror. Knowing the colors are happening makes them just as fun to wear. The headphones are very good quality. I like the over the ear style. The ear cushions are very soft and comfortable. They are adjustable a little for a snug, not falling off, fit. The headband has some cushioning to keep it comfy to wear across the head.

Operating this set is pretty simple. The Bluetooth pairing is automatic when turning on the power. It was a quick connection. There is a voice prompt announcing the connection status and more. It needs to be charged fully before using with the BT connection. It can also be used with the included Aux cable, no charge is needed. However the LED lights do not flash with the AUX use.

An observation, the volume needs to be pretty loud to see a variety of colors. I mean really loud. My listening volume was able to generate one and maybe the occasional two colors. The louder the volume, the more color dancing. The sound – pretty good. I find it has a high bass and I wish they offered more treble. I like the controls on the headset. I can move forward and backward plus adjust the volume.

When not wearing, these will fold up for storage and easy carrying in a backpack. I would rate these LED headphones in my personal pretty good category. The sound is decent, the colors and the comfort make these outstanding above the rest.

One2Try Review – Yofit Kitchen Soap and Sponge holder

October 10, 2016

Comments Off on One2Try Review – Yofit Kitchen Soap and Sponge holder

If I have to do dishes, I want to be organized. I needed something to keep the sponge, and more, in one place. The Yofit Joseph Kitchen Soap and Sponge Organizer has made the perfect place to keep the sponge and a bottle of soap.

S

The organizer features a divided basket for holding a small soap bottle and maybe a scrubbing brush. The outer rail is a good spot for hanging a dish cloth or for drying a counter top cleaning rag. The bottom plate is in two parts. The vented section allows for the sponge to air dry.

Overall the concept it pretty smart! The size fits on my sink corner and it has cleaned up some of the dishwashing clutter. I always know where the sponge is….as long as it is placed back on the plate when finished. Hubby has a bad habit of leaving it in the sink.

This unit is capable of being taken apart for cleaning. No worries about gunk build up, just wash it every now and then.

I have the black and gray color one but it also comes in a green tan color.

This is a welcome addition to my kitchen sink. It keeps everything in place and is quite functional. It is well made and should last a while.

One2Try Review – Oak Leaf Essential Oil Diffuser

October 10, 2016

Comments Off on One2Try Review – Oak Leaf Essential Oil Diffuser

I adore filling my home with fragrance. Since discovering oil diffusers, I have many types and sizes. This beautiful Oak Leaf Oil Diffuser is a compact size with a very pleasing shape.

The shape looks like a donut. The smooth round squatty diffuser is a dark wood coloring which matches just about any décor. The size is small making it ideal for a desk, nightstand or any smaller room. I like having this in my home office. It is simple to fill and get operating.

The lid comes off the top for filling with water and any desired essential oil. A few drops of oil is all it takes to fill the air with fragrance. Depending on the situation, whether my sinuses are acting up, or I need something calming, determines the oil I will use. One of my favorite oils is anything in the citrus range. I have a sweet orange oil that is amazing! Placing a few drops of my sweet orange oil in this diffuser, with the max water level filled, close the lid then start the unit.

This diffuser has two modes, a continuous and an intermittent. The intermittent will diffuse for 3 minutes then stop for a minute before repeating the cycle. During either mode, if the water runs low, it will auto shut off the device. The liquid amount it not that much so it will use it up fast in either mode.

There is an added color effect. Seven colors cycle through when operating or they can be left off.

I like this small diffuser for its very pretty looks and the super quiet operation. I have had others that dispense more mist, but this one is ideal for smaller spaces. The mist action is good. It is mesmerizing to watch the mist as it comes out of the middle opening.

I am very happy to have this high quality diffuser. It looks great no matter which room I place it in. It is simple to operate and quiet enough to use in a bedroom. Sure smells good!

One2Try Review – OMore Polarized Sunglasses

October 9, 2016

Comments Off on One2Try Review – OMore Polarized Sunglasses

DCBanner.jpgMy husband is obsessed with sport sunglasses. He has one in every vehicle, his backpack, near the door and in the backyard. The OMore Sports Sunglasses are just his style.

The black frame features a wrap around the eye shape. The frame is made of very light material but it is still flexible. The comfort is ideal. On the ear pieces are rubber sections for softness and non slipping action on the ears. The flexibility allows for a good fit on his wider face. He has been wearing this pair for days and not once had any pressure point. These have quickly become his new favorite sunglasses!

The lens color provides good shade. The polarized lens keeps things super sharp focus. A big plus is the UV protection. This pair offers both UVA and UVB protection. For driving this really helps control the glare.

They have included a handy zippered pouch for storage. The pouch can be clipped to a backpack while hiking or on day trips. A silky drawstring pouch is also included.

Hubby loves them!  They look sharp too! Very stylish!

One2Try Review – UV Protection Bora Boonie Hat

Comments Off on One2Try Review – UV Protection Bora Boonie Hat

DCBanner

I love hats. Any kind. I have stylish hats and functional ones. This Boonie hat drops into my functional category. The UV Protection Bora Boonie Hat is ideal for outdoor activities.

There is a lot to like about this hat. The lightweight material is very comfortable to wear. On both sides, there is a ventilated patch for circulation, that really helps keep my head cool. The brim all around is much larger than a average ball cap or fishing hat. This provides excellent shade coverage on my face and neck. In case of windy days, I can use the attached neck drawstring to keep the hat from blowing away.

So where can you wear this hat? I have been wearing it while out walking. I have worn it to my local swap meet. It is light enough to toss in a backpack for day hikes. Even out working in the garden, this hat is great sun protection. The light gray color is neutral enough for guys or gals to wear. The fit is unisex, it fits good on my head as well as my husband.

The hat is durable and stitched together expertly. It can also be hand washed.

For outdoors, no matter what activity, I am happily wearing this UV protective hat.

One2Try Review – Kedsum Dimmable LED Desk Lamp

October 9, 2016

Comments Off on One2Try Review – Kedsum Dimmable LED Desk Lamp

DCBanner

I am amazed at LED lighting technology. It uses much less power and still provides decent amount of light. I like this Kedsum Dimmable LED Desk Lamp for its features.

The lamp is a gooseneck style on a clip base. The base can be used 3 ways. It can be clipped to a desk or table, it acts as a stand and it is able to be hung on a wall with the nail hole in the bottom. Having the flexibility allows for using this lamp in a variety of places. I have it clipped to the edge of my desk. The clip is strong to hold it securely.

To control the lamp, it is a touch sensitive panel. This is a house current plug in LED, which I prefer over the USB only type of plugs. To turn it on, press the power button. Once on, it can be adjusted to the desired brightness by holding a finger on the power button. It will dim or brighten depending on the level it was previously on. It is simple to adjust.

I have seen no flickering of the light. It is a cool bluish glow, providing a lot of light where needed. The neck is very flexible allowing for proper light direction.

I like this lamp for its multiuse features. It is durable and easy to operate. It is lightweight enough to move from room to room. This is one versatile lamp.

One2Try Review – ProAid Electric Eraser

Comments Off on One2Try Review – ProAid Electric Eraser

Gosh. Do I really make that many mistakes that I need an electric eraser? Well not so many mistakes but when working with schedules, there can be a lot of changes. The ProAid Electric Eraser makes fast work of cleaning off those pencil marks.

This is a small handheld unit that uses two AAA batteries. The eraser tip is held in place securely. When needing to erase something, hold down the power button on the side. The eraser tip spins to remove the pencil marks in a flash. I am amazed how fast and thorough it cleans.

It makes a slight buzzing sound while working which may be a bother to use in quiet offices or in classrooms. For home use, it is ideal. The eraser leaves very little debris behind too.

A huge plus is the additional eraser refills included with the unit. They have included 20 eraser refills. That should last a while. I am not sure about getting more refills after those are gone though. I will have to research to see if just the refills are available.

I do a lot of writing in pencil. Several calendars are full of schedules. Making changes is easy with the help of this handy powered eraser. It works as expected. Glad to have one on my desk.

One2Try Review – 3 Piece Flatware Set

October 8, 2016

Comments Off on One2Try Review – 3 Piece Flatware Set

 

DCBanner

 

Do you pack a lunch? I do on occasion. I am not fond of using disposable plastic silverware. It just goes in the trash, what a waste. Now I can bring my own set of flatware. Introducing the Kakalu 3 piece stainless steel flatware set.

The set comes with a large fork, large spoon and a demitasse spoon. It all fits nicely in its own included zippered pouch. The finish is a beautiful highly polished shine. There is no design on the handles, it is simple but looks classy. The balance of each feels comfortable to hold. The fork and spoon are standard adult size. The demitasse spoon is the cutest tiny spoon. I am not 100% sure what I would use this for, maybe stirring coffee or having a small dessert. It is nice to have in the set.

I was wondering why a knife is not included?

The set fits in the pouch. The pouch I received is a bright red making it easy to spot in my lunch bag. The colors come randomly. One thing I did notice about the case, the description states it is a washable neoprene case – not the one I received. Mine is a lightweight fabric case. I am seriously doubting I can wash this one without it falling apart.

The stainless steel keeps these clean. All I do is wash and they are ready for the next time. It is handy to have my own flatware. No waste with plastic forks either.

This is a nice set, the case could be better, but overall, this flatware set works for me!

One2Try Review – Sundale Outdoor Dream Chair

October 8, 2016

Comments Off on One2Try Review – Sundale Outdoor Dream Chair

DCBanner

I have been transforming my backyard into a private oasis. No vacation this past summer, so we made our tropical island staycation at home. Adding to my bliss is this comfortable chaise lounge chair, the Sundale Outdoor Dream Chair.

What I like about this chair is the shape and the added upper canopy. It provides nice shade depending on the angle of the sun. The lounge is comfortable to sit on with a soft padded cushion included. The rust color matches my backyard décor perfectly.

This is an assembly required project. We did experience a few issues with the assembly and at one point, we took it all apart and started over. If there is one thing I would have the company address – it is the very unclear instructions. They are not detailed enough to figure out where each part or bolt goes. All it features are picture diagrams which are extremely vague. Following the directions – we had all sorts of trouble. Wrong bolt, pieces would not match up and more. Once trying with their instructions, we could see how it was supposed to go together. Working from scratch, we started from the bottom and worked section by section to finally have it all together – without the instructions. It made more sense for us to build it that way and much less frustrating. They definitely need better and clearer directions.

That being said, building it on our own, took less than 1 hour. The longest part was the lacing of the chair support on the frame. It takes going around the frame with the rope. Lots of feeding and pulling then adjusting to get the proper tightness. It is not impossible, but it does take patience and time.

All completed, it is a fabulous chair! It sits very stable. The cushion is soft while the under support gives it a hammock type of feel. I like the added pillow attached to the cushion. It is made for an average size adult, or as you can see, an adult and two dogs.

 

Overall, even with the directions being problematic, this lounge chair is a wonderful addition to our backyard.

One2Try Review: Air Dry Clay – Vivid colors!

October 7, 2016

Comments Off on One2Try Review: Air Dry Clay – Vivid colors!

DCBanner

I admire those talented folks that can make the cutest tiny clay food items. I have never been much of a sculptor. My creations well, not the cutest. I am enjoying playing with this SySrion Air Dry Polymer Clay Set.

There is a lot to like about this set. First is the amazing colors! It comes with 24 bright colors. These colors are bold, vivid and ultra colorful! There are lots of blues, greens, pinks, yellows and more. With all these colors, it is easy to make cute creations. Each of the colors is individually packaged. Once a package is opened, it needs to be placed in a new plastic bag to prevent drying out. Bummer – I did have one of the packages burst open in the box. One of the blue colors had squeezed out the end, making it all dried out. There was still enough in the package to use though, just the end had dried.

The feel of the clay is soft to touch, almost spongy in texture. A little kneading is all it takes to get this clay ready for use. If it gets a little dry, add a touch of water to make it soft again. I like that there is no sticky feeling on my hands when using it. I found it created very little mess. Once a creation is made, it can be air dried for 24 hours to make a long lasting permanent figure.

SAM_5635SAM_5641

A plus with this set are the many molds and a few tools that are provided. It comes with fruit molds, a few animals, and three modeling tools. A bunch of googly eyes, some noses and more, are also included.

SAM_5642SAM_5643

The set is rated for ages 3 and over. It is non toxic with no residue or odor. Everything is included in the box. This is a creative and fun set for all ages.
