And the Mrs Lifestyle

Tag: product review (page 1 of 2)

I’ll admit I was a little (ok a lot) skeptical about a battery pack that can jump a car. But I was proved wrong just last week, when I had to work and hubby had already left for work, and my car wouldn’t start.

I had the battery pack charged to 3 out of the 4 blue lights it has to signal the charge level. I plugged in the jumper cables into their designated slot and then connect the red positive to the red positive and then black to black negative. The small box that separates the cables has a little light on it. It blinks red when it’s not connected right, blinks green when it’s getting juiced and set up, and stays lit green when it’s ready to go. One turn of the key and it started up!

I realized what the lights meant after I had tried to start it twice before it worked. I wasn’t waiting for the light to stay green. It had been blinking before when I had tried it. After starting my car it still showed 3 out of 4 charging lights too! You’re going to get a few full charges out of this if you use it just for your phone. I did purchase with a coupon but all opinions are honest and truthful. This is perfect to have in the car for every battery emergency needed!

Moscow Mule Hammered Copper Mug

buzzoole code

We can’t deny that copper is pretty much amazing. Even better is when a nice cold drink is in a nice copper mug. Fortunately Kitchen Classique has you covered with their Moscow Mule Copper Mug! And you get a copper shot glass free with your order too!

This set is super nice! Its pretty look at and keeps your drink super cold! Both pieces are 100% copper. There’s no metal longing or copper plating like on others. That means you don’t get a metallic taste in your mouth either. The handle allows you to drink without warning the cup or freezing your fingers. I’m pretty I need to order another one as my and hubby argue over who gets it on any given evening. It also comes with a book of drink recipes which include so many different types of Moscow Mules. I highly recommend this for any spirit drinker or bar owner.

In fact I’ll leave you with a classic Moscow Mule Recipe:
6oz Ginger Beer
1 1/2 oz Vodka
Squeezed lime wedge or lime juice

Dry-Ice Whiskey Stone Combo Set



So we prefer to have a liquor chilled for the most part right? But we don’t neccassarily want it to be watered down. Especially a good scotch/whiskey/bourbon or wine. That and we don’t want to wait or always have it in the fridge. This is where Home Eco’s Whiskey Stone Combo Set comes in handy!

They offer 4 soap stones and 4 stainless steel stones. All in one case with tongs to pick them up so they stay cool without the heat from your hands warming them up. The soap stones brought it a little below room temperature if that’s your style. The stainless steel didn’t make it as cool as with ice, but still super chilled enough for me to drink.

If your someone that likes a little water in your whiskey to bring out the flavor (which a few drops is recommended by bourbon connoisseurs) but don’t want it all watered down, just use a few of these and add a few drops! It makes it perfect with the stainless steels ones!

Aroma Trees Fragrance Spray

There’s tons of airfresheners on the market. Some work, some make it smell like garbage mixed with flowers, some cover up smells for a few minutes then go away. Aroma Trees is awesome at pretty much everything.

It can be used as a air freshener, as a fabric deodorizer, and as a poo-pourri! It comes in a tiny bottle, but 1-2 sprays is enough to take care of anything! The apple scent I got smells like someone just cut open a bag of ripe juicy apples and just put them on the stove. It’s heavenly! And the smell hangs around long enough to get rid of any odors and leave a faint fruit smell even a half hour later when used as a room spray.

You can even spray it 3-5 times in the toilet to create a scent layer before you do your business. It doesn’t help super strong smells that way, but it works on light odors. I’ve ditched my other brand name air freshness in the bathroom solely for this one. It works wonders! I highly suggest picking up a bottle and trying it out!

I have received a product at a reduced cost, in exchange for my honest unbiased review. Regardless, all opinions are my own and truthful. I was not compensated in any way other than a discounted product.

URBNFit Long Exercise Bands



If you’re like me, you don’t necessarily have a gym close by, or a lot of room to set up your own gym. I’ve decided this summer I want to work on getting more in shape. I’ve tried in the past with not much luck. But I’ve found that what I need is a lot of different things to keep me motivated. I can do one type of excersise 1-2 times a week and I don’t get discouraged as quickly!


I’ve found the best workouts for my arms and upper back/chest is my Shake Weight (which is a killer workout) and URBNFit’s long excersise bands. They come in 3 different strengths so you can start with the super stretchy light band and work up to the harder heavy band.

The light is super stretchy. When I stand in the middle I can easily pull it all the way to my face. It’s a great start that makes you feel like you got a workout but you don’t feel it the next day and have jelly arms where you can’t move them. And when you think that’s too easy you just move up to the next band! I also have issues with shin splints and stress fractures. The heavy band provides the perfect resistance to stretching out my shins and calf’s to help elevate the pain! So in essence, 2 for 1!

This set also comes with a door hanger. It has a marble in one end, that you slip in between the door and door frame and then shut the door to get in some upper shoulder workouts. Its super strong and I’ve had no problems with movement or slippage from it!

So definitely check out these long exercise bands if you’re looking for a new arm workout! And if you have some already, what’s your favorite workout with them?

Bake It Fun Baking Mat

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

So it’s no secret I love to bake. Or rather I can’t cook so at least I’m useful for something right!? Right? I’m going with it. So who doesn’t love cookies? But who likes the greasy bottoms, or the burnt bottoms. Problem solved! BakeItFun makes a Non-Stick Silicone Baking Mat! But its not just for cookies

Although it does have perfect cookie placement circles (which I love) it also has rulers along each end for when I’m doing pies, or dough and can measure exactly what I need all on one thing! Yes, I also use this for my prep work. I don’t have (as) messy counters after, and less tools to use with this! It’s thin enough that you can bake cookies right on it and don’t have to worry about changing any settings. There’s hardly any residue left over when they come out of the oven either!

This thing is awesome, and like i said, I don’t just use it for baking only. I’ve even seen others use it for play mats with their kids play-do! Be warned of the sizes though. These work great with cookie sheets, but not so much the regular pans with sides. This one is a little too big to fit in them. But I have room to spare on my cookie sheets!

Surpah's Dual S Body Fat Scale



So if you remember from last week when I checked out the Surpah’s lightweight scale, I’m kind of in love with this company. This time around I got to check out the Surpahs Dual-S Body Fat Scale. This thing has all the bells and whistles if you want a little more info.

It measures your weight, body fat, water, calories, and your muscle and bone mass! You can also program up to 4 users. The programming is where it gets a little tricky. I mean it may just be me, but I had a few issues getting it to recognize that it was me instead of thinking it was my husband (which all the pictures are) But maybe that’s because he hadn’t gotten on it to get a base read for him or not. That was really my only issue with it.

It also has a quick weight feature which will just give you your weight if you’re in a hurry without having to wait and go through all of the different settings. The bonus is though, that the extras go through 2 cycles so if you missed a number the first time, you can catch it again.

Once you go through the manual and learn what all the signs are, its super helpful to figure out how or where that extra or less pound was from. I found I gained 2 pounds one day but then realized it was because my water weight was twice as high as the day before.

It’s a great scale if you like to have all the different settings to go through. If not the Lightweight Scale is great as well for just weight and BMI, Which do you prefer?

Vino aria


I’m a wino. But what married ladies aren’t really…. 😉 I tend to gravitate towards white wines, but I do enjoy a nice full bodied red every now and then. What I don’t like is waiting on it to breathe and air out before its enjoyed. Never fear, Vino Aria
to the rescue!


It’s a handy little tool that fits right into the wine glass like a stopper. It aerates the wine as you pour it!no more waiting for it to settle and breathe before it’s ready to go! It’ll be ready by the time you sit down with a good book or the remote.


It’s a nice heavy duty plastic with a rubber stopper so there’s no leakage. It also helps in pouring it nicely out of the bottle with no drippage! It comes in a nice little package so it’s the perfect gift for the red wine lover in your life!

Surpahs Lightweight Digital Bathroom Scale Review

20141105-013813.jpg

Surpahs Shiny Small Lightweight Digital Scale is one of my new favorite things. We all hate weighing our selves, but as women its a necessary evil. I also have a love/hate relationship with BMI calculators. Its the same way when i step on my Wii Fit and it yells at me because it didn’t see me for 4 months and then give my Mii a muffin top. I get it. But I have actually replaced my old scale with this one! 1. Because it takes regular batteries instead of those ion ones and 2. its a nice all in one. You can program up to 4 people in it and it can automatically tell who is who. You can just step straight on it if you want it to register just your weight and go on about your day or you can turn it on then step on and it will give you your weight, BMI, and also give you an annoying little circle that tells you if you’re over/underweight or obese as you see below.

20141105-013819.jpg

I have Hubby and me programed into it and we have no problems telling us apart. You can also set it to kg instead of lbs if thats you’re thing with an easy button press. It works quickly and easily and doesn’t take costly batteries. For something i love to dread its the perfect little thing! Oh and it also comes in pink 😉

Super Stroller Organizer

Children n Us makes some awesome kid/baby products! The Super Stroller Organizer is just one of them! It’s the perfect size, not too big not too small, to fit all of the essentials into! Bottle, phone, diapers, wipes, burp clothes and even an extra outfit! This is perfect for short little daytime trips. There’s tons of little pockets to fit small things in; toys, sunglasses, phone, etc. And it straps to darn near everything, including little umbrella strollers that don’t have baskets!

The ONLY downsides to this is that I wish it had at least one thermal pocket for a bottle at the young stage. And it’d be nice to have a removable shoulder strap to use when transporting it from the house to the car and the likes. But other than that its completely perfect for short outings without having to lug a huge stroller or diaper bag with me.

They’re reasonably priced on Amazon at $15.99. If you register for one thing let it be this! It’s a savior. And will only be used more as the baby’s grow older for quick easy trips.
