FLSNT 2 LED Chandelier Lights

FLAME TIP CANDELABRA LIGHT BULBS

~ What ~
This pack contains 2 LED light bulbs that are tapered and fit in chandeliers or candelabras. The dimmable lights that measure 4.2-inches long with a base of 1.38-inches have sockets that fit most E12 electrical housings. They use only 4 watts of electricity compared to the standard 40-watt bulbs and should last 25,000 hours.

~ Why ~
What I like most about this product is that they save me money because they are LED so should last a long time. In putting them outside in our two garage carriage lights, their warm white glow brightly shines on the area.

~ Why Not ~
Some may not like how bright the lights shine, but the package states they are dimmable.

~ Wish ~
With the tapered shape, I wish the glass had a design or pattern on the sides.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a 2-pack of tapered LED candelabra light bulbs, this will make your fixtures shine brightly.

Lucky Step Women’s Leopard Running Shoes

TRENDY, COMFY WOMEN’S WALKING SHOES

~ What ~
Made of suede upper fabric material with a white Phylon bottom, this pair of women’s shoes comes in 2 color choices of brown or black zebra design. Available in 7 sizes from 6 to 11, they include shoelaces, padded soles, and rubber bottoms. With a Velcro tab at the heels, they aid in slipping onto the feet. Each shoe arrives in a thin drawstring bag, and cleaning instructions are not included.

~ Why ~
I have a pair of these types of slip-on shoes, and I love them for walking our dog. I ordered an 8 for my women’s 7.5 size foot, and they fit fine. I like the look and thickness of the padded soles that give some support as well as the black and white design to the material.

~ Why Not ~
Some may not like the zebra look or that they tie. Others may not appreciate the way the ankle area wraps higher around the foot. With my foot being a 7.5 size, the 8 was snuggly so I recommend ordering a size up. There is a chemical odor initially, but it does dissipate after a few hours.

~ Wish ~
I wish there were more color selections for this pair of shoes as they are fun and cute for women.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a stylish pair of  “animal” shoes, check these out as they are comfortable, stretchy, and fun.

Havasu Premium Fat Burner Capsules

ALL NATURAL WEIGHT LOSS FORMULA

~ What ~
Containing 60 supplements, these elongated capsules support a healthy metabolism and manages appetite. The bottle states the dietary supplement should be taken 2 a day. The ingredients include B6, Garcinia Cambogia, CLA, Green Tea Extract, Apple Cider Vinegar, White Kidney Beans, and Coral Calcium Powder. There is a warning on the bottle regarding who should take it and consult their doctor before using. The bottles were stamped Lot # 8E04 and are best used by 05/2020.

~ Why ~
I regularly take apple cider vinegar supplements to curb my appetite, but I appreciate how this one has carb blockers without any preservatives or sugars added. I like that it is not just one supplement but that it contains 7 different ingredients. Being produced in the United States at a GMP facility is a plus.

~ Why Not ~
Those that are skeptical of non-prescription natural supplements may avoid this product. Those who should not be on KETO diets should stay away from it. Others may be concerned that some of the ingredients will negatively interact with prescription drugs, so contacting a physician or pharmacist is ideal.

~ Wish ~
I wish more than 1 month’s supply was included in the bottle.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a natural supplement with 5 clinically-researched ingredients that support a healthy metabolism and manages your appetite, this is an ideal way to do it.

EK Sportswear Men’s Sweatpants

THIN LEGGED MEN’S WORKOUT PANTS

~ What ~
Made of 60%, 35% Cotton, & 5% Spandex, this men’s pair of gym pants comes in 2 colors and 4 sizes from Small to X-Large. There is a 3-inch wide ribbed waistband with a drawstring, 2 side zipper pockets, and 2.5-inch cuffed ankles Attached cleaning instructions have icons stating it can be machine washed or hand washed in cold water.

~ Why ~
My husband works out at the gym 6 days a week so needs well-made sweatpants like these. With choices of black or blue, the garment’s material is durable and not thin since it has 2 ease pressure stripes down the inner legs and comfort tech fabrication. The Medium fits nicely on his frame. It is nice to have an adjustable waistband.

~ Why Not ~
Some may not like the 2 color options or prefer shorts when working out. A few may think the 2 light gray stripes on the inner thighs look awkward, but they are designed to reduce compression deformation and pressure on the thigh during movement.

~ Wish ~
I wish pants like these were available for women.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a pair of slim-fit tapered sweatpants for men, these will help a guy look thin and in good shape while being comfortable while wearing.

Lazyaunti Mesh Travel Bags

4 MESH BAGS IN 4 SIZES

~ What ~
Made of a nylon mesh fabric in mint or pink colors, this set includes 4 bags in 4 different sizes. The smallest bag measures 8.6 by 7.1 inches; the medium measures 11.1 by 7.8 inches; the large is 12.9 by 9.8 inches, and the extra-large is 15.7 by 11.8 inches. They have bright nylon zippered entrances that are easy to open and shut as well as a loop handle. They are hand or machine washable and should be air dried.

~ Why~
With the rage of eco-friendly, reusable or storage bags, I like that this set includes 4 different sizes for a myriad of uses. Having them a little see-through makes them easy to spot what is in each as I organize. These work perfect for traveling, cosmetics, art supplies, et cetera without tearing, ripping, or breaking.

~ Why Not ~
Some may not like using a mesh or semi-see-through bag although they are quite handy as you do not have to open them to see what is inside. If sharp pointed objects such as pens are put in the bags, they may puncture the mesh.

~ Wish ~
I wish there were more than only color options.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a set of 4 zippered mesh bags that are handy to use, this set is a keeper.

Thanks to Lazyaunti for this discounted product that I am not obligated to review.

365 Devotions to Love God and Love Others Well

365 Devotions to Love God and Love Others WellTitle: 365 Devotions to Love God and Love Others Well
Author: Victoria York
Publisher: Zondervan
ISBN: 978-0-310-08547-8

In this encouraging 354-day devotional, you’ll learn the many ways God cherishes you. Beloved Scripture passages and thoughtful devotions invite you to return that love and then embrace the adventure of reaching out to others in meaningful, honest, and profound ways,” the back jacket states in Victoria York’s book, 365 Devotions to Love God and Love Others Well.

~ What ~
At three-hundred-and-eighty-eight pages, this small hardbound for mainly women is designed to be read daily throughout a year while concentrating on loving God and others more. Using mainly the New International Version of the Holy Bible, also referenced are the ASV, CSB, ESV, HCSB, NLT, and The Voice. With a satin blue attached page ribbon, the ending includes chapter references and several blank lined pages to write notes.

The book is separated into the twelve months of the year with one page for every day. Each dated page starts with a title and written-out Bible verse, followed by two to four paragraphs that begin with a topic related to God, His love, and how we can love, sometimes linking it to the Bible verse. The page ends with a short one to three sentence prayer.

One example is June 2nd that is titled The Common Man and has Isaiah 64:8 written out about the clay and the potter. The discussion reminds us that many people from the Old and New Testament and a few current-day individuals were common folk, but they became people of valor who did uncommonly great things for God. Even though we think we can be independent of Him, when we give ourselves completely to Him, He creates something remarkable in and through us. The prayer asks for Jesus to transform us to be the person He wants us to be.

~Why ~
I love devotionals that do not have commentary of the writer’s personal experiences and appreciate that this one does not. Instead, there are loving and thoughtful reminders of God’s unfathomable love to us and how we can accept that love, love Him back, and show others our love toward them. Some of the example titles include Tokens of Love, Who You Once Were, The Spark That Brings Hardship, Finishing Well, The Natural Mentor, Soldiers, and God Relents. Able to read each in under a minute, the devotions are short and to the point.

~ Why Not ~
Some women may not like themed devotions so would pass on this book. Others may prefer longer or deeper devotionals that explain the Bible verse in depth or only reading the Scriptures as their daily time with God.

~ Wish ~
With each day’s reading being short and limited, the book would be more useful to me if it included more background and information of the Scripture chosen and other Bible verses related to the topic. I prefer using the King James Version for most Bible verse translations.

~ Want ~
If you like devotionals that focus on God’s love and how to accept and share it throughout the year, this focuses well on the topic and would make a great gift for that special person you love. Due to its limitation, it should be read daily along with the Bible.

MarinaVida Women’s Lemon Bathingsuit

ADJUSTABLE CRISSCROSS BACK STRAPS 1-PIECE BATHING SUIT

~ What ~
Made of 82% Polyester and 18% Spandex, this women’s one-piece bathing suit has two ¼ inch adjustable shoulder straps that divide into 3 straps and crisscross at the back shoulder blades with removable padded bra inserts and a V neckline. Available in 11 choices, it comes in fruit, fern, and floral patterns in 5 sizes from small, medium to XX-large. Cleaning instructions online and on its attached tag state it is best to wash in cold water and not put in the dryer.

~ Why ~
Seeing that I take a spa daily, I go through bathing suits often. I like that this one is easy to put on and take off, yet it is loose enough that it does not constrict the body. The fabric is soft yet stretchable, and the padded bra inserts are not too thick. I like how I can adjust the shoulder straps according to my needs.

~ Why Not ~
Some may not like that there are no underwires in this bathing suit, but I prefer those without them. Others may wish its breast pads were a little thicker, but they are not bulky and do not show off the nipples.

~ Wish ~
With so many choices, there are plenty of design options. I wish the style came in solid colors also.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for an attractive one-piece bathing suit that has adjustable shoulder straps, this is a great choice for the price.

Thanks for MarinaVida for this discounted product that I am under no obligation to evaluate.

Buck Denver’s Bible Coloring Book: Old Testament Stories

Buck Denver's Bible Coloring Book: Old Testament StoriesTitle:  Buck Denver’s Bible Coloring Book: Old Testament Stories
Illustrator: Buck Denver
Publisher: JellyTelly Press
ISBN: 978-1-5460-0994-8

“Coloring pages include a simple summary of each big Bible moment to spark faith-building conversations as you color!” the back jacket states in Buck Denver’s Bible Coloring Book: Old Testament Stories.

~ What ~
This sixty-four-page oversized paperback targets children five to six years old who enjoy a coloring book devoted to Old Testament stories. With bold and expressive drawings in black and white on all the pages, there are short one to two sentences of stories with the majority being horizontal, not vertical.  The ESV and NLT versions of the Holy Bible are referenced. There is an offer for a free month of unlimited streaming on their jellytelly entertainment website.

~ Why ~
Those who love to fill in coloring books will love this one that promotes God in the 1st half of the Word of God. I like that the illustrations do not depict scary scenes of Moses with the plagues, David and Goliath, Daniel’s friends in the fire, or Jonah with the big fish. It is thoughtful the drawings are sideways on the pages, include Scripture chapters on most of the stories, and that the pages are perforated so can be carefully removed.

~ Why Not ~
Those who do not have a personal relationship with the Almighty may not be interested in this type of coloring book. Others may not care for coloring. Some may wish the cardstock used were thicker to avoid ink or markers bleeding since the drawings are on both sides of the pages. A few may not appreciate that the scenes are taken from another one of Buck’s books.

~ Wish ~
Since the illustrations are on both sides of the pages that are not thick, colors may bleed through to the other side. I wish the book had one side blank so the artist could cut out and frame the finished design.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a fun coloring book of engaging depictions of God’s stories from the Old Testament, this one will make a young artist happy. Be sure to get the New Testament coloring book to complete the set.

Thanks to Hatchette Books for this complimentary book that I am under no obligation to review.

Suntech 180 Degree Security Camera

PANNING SECURITY CAMERA

~ What ~
With a white body, this security camera kit includes a monitor that has a built-in 180-degree lens that senses motion during day or night, WiFi/email alert capability, microphone with two-way audio, USB cable, mounting bracket with screws, and instructions. With night vision up to 32 feet, it can be used mainly indoors, records video and audio, and can be set to work only when there is movement. It links with the Danale online cloud services or can be used with an SD card (not included).

~ Why ~
Having used security cameras before, I like the shape of this one and that it can sync with my computer’s WiFi 2.4 Ghz router as so many on the market do not. It was by far the easiest camera I have ever linked to my Samsung Galaxy S8 and added to my desktop and computer. Since I am using this camera in a window to point outside when there is movement by a walkway, I was happy that it pans a wide range plus zooms in automatically and had a decent night video compared to others. Being able to secure it vertically on a table or fixed to a wall is appreciated. I opted for the free 30-day trial to use their cloud services which have a $5 monthly fee but can use the SD card only if needed.

~ Why Not ~
Some may find these units hard to set up as they can be complicated, but as I mentioned, this one was the fastest and easiest yet. The SD card is not included, and it is trickier to set up and view past files. The constant vibration or ring of the phone when there is movement may bother some owners.

~ Wish ~
I wish the videos could be sent to email from my phone – they probably can, but I cannot see that yet so may be able to do it from a desktop or laptop. I wish the camera also took 3 still-motion pictures when there is movement. I tried to go online through my desktop to order a one-year subscription for $49, but it would not accept the URL link.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for an indoor security camera that can be used on your Android, iPhone, or Windows computer, this is an excellent choice for the money because it is easier than all others to set up and is not too costly either.

Shindel Sand & Shell Bottle Set

COLORFUL SAND BOTTLE CRAFT KIT

~ What ~
Containing 20 small glass bottles in 3 sizes with cork tops, 10 bags of colored fine sand, and 50 real sea shells, this craft kit is geared for ages 6 years old and older. With tiny colored paper scrolls with ties and red bean decorations, a myriad of ideas can be created. Without instructions, the items arrive in a gift box, ready for giving.

~ Why ~
Our 5-year old granddaughter loves to make crafts, especially those with seashells. Since I have a degree in art, this is an ideal gift we can do together when she visits. I like how there are multiple items to use, especially the 3 different sized glass bottles in 5, 7, and 10 ml and their paper enclosures that can have small notes written on them. The sand colors are white tan, pink, darker pink, red, purple, orange, yellow, green, and brown with all different types of miniature seashells. It is great that a young child can make creations without using a hot gun, glue, microwave, or oven.

~ Why Not ~
Some may be concerned the jar lids and shells are small, so they should not be used around children who are 3 or under. Others may not like dealing with sand as it can be messy.

~ Wish ~
It would be nice to include a mini-funnel to pour the sand into the jars and directions with suggested ideas.

~ Want ~
If you are looking for a fun way for a boy or girl to create small mini-sand bottles, this is an excellent gift that will be enjoyed for hours.

Thanks to Shindel for this discounted product that I am under no obligation to evaluate.
