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...]

SocialCafe App Review

All opinions expressed are those of the reviewer and honest in nature. I like apps as much as the next person, but it really has to do something cool to keep my attention. There are several apps to capture pictures like Shminstagram and you can even edit the pictures and caption them. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but I say it's worth even more when you can add audio! Enter SocialCafe an iPhone app that enables you to add up to 5 minutes of audio to your photographs. I'll start by saying the only downfall I found with SocialCafe is that I'm an Android girl and so far it's only available on iOS. I have little experience with iOS, but that being said, this app is extremely easy to use. After the initial install, I was also asked to either create or use a Dropbox account. I tried to create it, but I guess I had an account so … [Read more...]

Shelley Says – Slammers Snacks Review

Slammers

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. I was excited when these arrived on our door step; anxious to see what the kids thought of them. What Mom doesn't want to give her kiddos the very best options possible to nourish their growing little selves? I opened the box with two out of three kids waiting to taste the juices in the cool box. (the box really is super cool looking) Crossing my fingers as they both took a drink of the "PUMPED" filled with banana, mango, butternut squash, ancient grains and cinnamon, they didn't hesitate to "pass" on it and try the next one. Next up was "CHILL 'N. This is filled with banana, blueberries, butternut squash, Greek yogurt and yum berry. I got a better reaction with this one from Ashley. It was "yummy" and she later devoured the rest of the box. Jesse however; … [Read more...]

Pirate’s Booty 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. I'm just finishing up training for a new job and we did these things called "teachbacks". We would be put into groups and come up with a Powerpoint or some sort of presentation to give the rest of the class over the material we covered.  We had some fun D&D skits. One of the last presentations we put together we did a roleplay. We had a member of our group pretend to take a call and the other member was the customer. To add some fun, we had the "customer" use a pirate voice! It was hilarious and a great way to learn things. I thought that was fitting since I recently received some Pirate's Booty snacks for review. These are seriously fun snacks! They've gotten rid of fryers and trans fats, keeping the snacks simple and delicious. There are no artificial colors, … [Read more...]

Sunscreen Bands Review – Shelley Says

Sun

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. These handy little bands arrived in the mail within 2 days. Our family practically lives at the river in the summer, so I was excited to try these. We all get sunburned throughout the summer, especially Ashley and Jesse. They have "orange" hair and the fair skin to go with it. Yes, I always goob them up with tons of sunblock. Fast forward a few days after the sunscreen bands arrived. A little rain forecasted, a couple cloudy days, and a sick girl.. We're now ready to hit the river. The kids lined up as usual to get smothered in sunblock. (this is so cute. Imagine 3 kids lined up with their eyes shut tight and noses plugged) moving on.... I put the sunbands on them. The directions say to use SPF 15 or more. (we had SPF 30) and to wait to get them wet for 15 … [Read more...]
