Here's to Me

And the Mrs Lifestyle

Tag: review (page 1 of 4)


This has been the talk of every gathering I’ve had this summer! It such a fun and unique piece that I can put pretty much anywhere.

I love that this comes with a remote to change settings if I’m sitting across the yard from it. It has 7 colors to choose from (including just the basic white). It can flash between colors, pulse to the beat of music (or even loud conversation), and my personal favorite; slowly go through a rainbow of colors. The slow color change is so pretty. It gives way more than the basic colors as they all blend together. You can even “pause” it in a certain color if you’re trying to match a theme.

The remote battery didn’t last long with mine. And we could only get the slow change to work by clicking the button on the bottom of the rock as opposed to the remote. The price point is a bit higher, but this thing has withstood quite a few torrential downpours and even a tumble from a chair and still works beautifully! I did purchase with a discount but all opinions are unbiased and truthful. This is such a pretty garden or porch adornment great for both indoors or out!

I have huge feet for a woman. I wear a size 12 which equates to a men’s 10.5. Finding cute or fun shoes in my size is next to impossible.

I was so excited to find these! I’ve seen shoes like these online and never dreamed I’d find a pair that 1. Was my size and 2. Was a decent price point. Odema knocked it out of the park! First off I love how comfortable they are. They can easily be worn as an everyday shoe without the lights on and no one would know. The orange and gray color scheme is fun and practical. These are similar to running shoes. The side and tip are a breathable mesh. They have great arch support as well. As just a shoe these are perfect. I went on a mile and a half walk with my dog the first time I wore these out and I had zero break in issues! They were so comfortable!

The lights though are what totally make these fun. It comes with a micro USB charger that you plug into any USB and then it splits so you can charge both shoes at the same time. The charger port is on the inside towards where you would tie your laces. It fits in the hole where your ankle is so you never feel it and it’s not in the way at all. The button to control each shoe is located right below the charge ports.

Each shoe is controlled separately. You have your basic where it cycles through the colors and they stay on continuously, then there’s a strobing white, and then there’s a flash of each color. Then a combo flash and then slow dim from all the colors and then finally a slow fade through every color. Then off. The slow fade and the combo are my favorites. I kind of wish that it had a setting where it would change colors with every step I took, but that’s reminiscent of the light up shoes I never had as a child. These are super fun and I don’t have to worry about shock or the ports getting wet as they’re tucked inside the shoe. The battery pack is located under your heel, but there’s enough cushion that you don’t feel it while they’re on. I provided a free sample for review, but all opinions are unbiased and truthful. These have been a hit out at festivals and concerts. And it makes me easy to find in a crowd. I love these!!

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?

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 😉
