Salted

All opinions expressed are those of the reviewer and honest in nature. I was just telling my sister, Dani, the other day how I've been on a salted caramel kick lately. There's just something about the sweet caramel combined with salt that has been on my mind and my tastebuds. I jumped at the chance to review Shotwell Candy as the first treat of theirs I set my eyes on were their original salted caramels. Try reading the description without your mouth watering: "This buttery soft caramel is infused with Kentucky bourbon, pure vanilla extract and then finished with flaky Celtic grey salt." Um, yes please! I was sent several varieties of Shotwell Candy and I was advised to let the caramels come to room temperature after arrival. Caramel that's too hard hurts my teeth and too soft gets stuck to the paper and my teeth. The candy arrived … [Read more...]

Hydro Flask Review

All opinions expressed are those of the reviewer and honest in nature. Jake drinks a ton of water. Ok, that might be a slight exaggeration, but he does drink a lot. Growing up, I don't remember drinking that much water. I drank a lot of milk and juice, even tea, but water wasn't our go-to for thirst. Jake has always been really great about drinking water as his first choice and so given the opportunity to review Hydro Flask, I knew it would be a good fit for him. He chose the 40oz stainless steel water bottle in Everest Blue. To me, that's a lot of water! It's rare that I drink even that much on a daily basis, though it's something that I'm working on. To Jake though, he refills it at least twice sometimes more a day! From the Hydro Flask website: Hydro Flask focuses exclusively on delivering the world’s best quality and widest … [Read more...]

All opinions expressed are those of the reviewer and honest in nature. Netwars The Butterfly Attack - Episode 1, now that's a mouthful. What is it you ask? It's an interactive graphic novel app. It's actually the first of a three part series. The app is just part of the Netwars Project. It also includes a web series, a television documentary, and a collection of eBook and audiobooks. I recently checked out this app and let me tell you, it creeped me out, but in a good way. First, it takes a little bit for it to open after you install it and the sound jumps out at you, well it scared me. Of course, that just intrigued me more. Basically the app is about a war on the net and your job is to stop attacks, gather information, and all sorts of other cool stuff. Features of Netwars – The Butterfly Attack: - Unique animations and sound … [Read more...]

Shelley Says – DuraVision Pro Review

DuraVision Pro

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a gift card/money/coupon and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. All opinions expressed are those of the reviewer and honest in nature. "The leader in safety light technology" The package labels Dura Vision Pro as: *50 + hour run time *5 Super bright red LED's *6 Light modes *2,500 + feet visibility *Strong clip *180 Pro safety light "Dura Vision Pro safety lights have been helping consumers stay safe since 1998. Seen while walking, biking, running, camping and dog walking." To be quite honest, I wasn't sure how I was going to "test" Dura Vision Pro. I couldn't use it during the day and I couldn't exactly test it on myself because, well... you get the idea. So, I did what any other person would do. I waited till dusk, had Joshua grab his bike and clipped the Dura Vision Pro light on him. This light will clip and hold on to anything! We clipped it on his hat, shirt, shorts, shoes... (I feel … [Read more...]
