All opinions expressed are those of the reviewer and honest in nature. Inside our kitchen cupboards is a total hodge podge. We have several different styles of just about everything. We've purchased things along the way, but most of what we have are hand me downs. I'm ok with that, but honestly I'd love to throw everything out someday and buy new. I would stock my collection with insulated drinkware like tumblers, mugs, and water bottles from Tervis. I was recently sent a water bottle and a few tumblers and they are my new favorite drink container. They keep cold items beverages cold and hot beverages hot and range in size from 10 oz to 24 oz. I love that you can choose designs to suit your personality with styles from an American flag, your favorite sports team, to humor and everything in between.  You can customize your own unique look … [Read more...]

Hydro Flask Review

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. 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...]

Shelley Says – DuraVision Pro Review

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...]

What is an Airplant?

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. Richard learned long ago not to bring me flowers.  The cats have made it very clear that any flower or plant that makes its way into the Rowell house ends up getting eaten or destroyed. The blooms are chewed off and the vase (ok, by vase I mean big glass) gets knocked over. I've pretty much resigned myself to the fact that this is a no flower/plant household. Enter The Air Plant Store. Billie, what's an airplant? Are you just making stuff up again? Nope! They're real! Airplant: a typically epiphytic, sometimes rootless, tropical American plant with grasslike or fingerlike leaves through which water and airborne or waterborne nutrients are absorbed. From The Air Plant Store: Air plants are unique, exotic and easy to care for. Care Instructions Included with Every … [Read more...]

Cabeau Evolution Pillow Review

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 solely those of the reviewer based upon personal experience with the product. We aren't travelers. I think we would be given the right circumstances and money, but generally we stick to our area in Iowa. You might think to yourself but Billie, why on Earth would you review a pillow marketed towards travelers? Good question! The answer is because like most products on the market, there are always several different ways to use an item. The reason I chose to review the Cabeau Evolution Pillow is because Richard was due to have surgery, septoplasty to be exact. The doctor told him that he would need to prop himself up for a few days after surgery. My MIL gave him like five pillows to use, but I knew he would probably still slide down and be uncomfortable. The Cabeau Evolution Pillow would be perfect to rest a7round … [Read more...]
