Wild Weather 2016 Square 12x12
Wild Weather 2016 Square 12x12

Edition: Calendar
Price: $14.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Weather at its most unpredictable, January 20, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I buy a new calendar every year for a weather-obsessed son and have never been disappointed in my choice. I want a calendar that is colorful, but with great photos of extreme weather, so each month shows another face of nature's fury. The quality is excellent and the images stunning. The item always arrives promptly and in excellent condition for gift-giving. Wall calendars are a vanishing species, but I appreciate having a calendar nearby for appointments and reminders without having to access a devise. LG

5.0 out of 5 stars Mini protection in an iPad age, January 20, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
For anyone enjoying a new iPad mini 4, the Logi Focus Any-Angle Case is just the ticket. It’s sturdy, well-designed and features the usual protection from accidental bumps, scratches and spills and the wear and tear of everyday use. The case is specially designed to place at any viewing angle with a 50-degree range. You can also flip the case for screen-sharing. Your Mini 4 goes to sleep when you close the case (saving battery power) and wakes when you open it, ready to use.

Without being bulky, too weighty or unattractive the Logi Focus Any-Angle Case is perfect for anyone who carries their Mini 4 around, but wants to protect it from random damage. It’s easy to clean, easy to fit and the perfect addition to a growing “i” collection. I carry my Mini iPad everywhere and have found this protective, flexible case the right solution to my needs. I’m very pleased with this product. LG/2016

4.0 out of 5 stars The new face of a home office, December 9, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Brother HL-3180 CDW copier/scanner has the best features of a home office printer: fast-printing, holds a 250-sheet paper tray and connects via wireless or USB cable (not included), features a touch-screen display for easy scanning and copying. The two-sided feature saves paper and improves efficiency- but best of all- this printer handles card stock weight as easily as standard copy paper. Though not meant for photo-quality copies, the images are bright and crisp, of high quality, perfect for greeting cards, announcements, flyers, etc. So what I expected to use for standard office tasks has become, instead, a cost-efficient way to print my own cards and still produce a near professional-quality product. This is a bonus and expands the copier/scanner’s appeal for school projects, personal use and office tasks, especially multiple, two-sided documents.

I’ll use someone more technically qualified to set up , because the things I have described only touch the surface of this machine’s capabilities (including copying to cloud services (DROPBOX, GOOGLE DRIVE, EVERNOTE, etc.). There are more features than I am able to appreciate- I welcome the instruction of someone who will walk me through the special features that are not yet familiar to me. This is the perfect blend of home printer convenience with state of the art technology to take advantage of the many options now available, an expansion of services and possibilities beyond the former limitations of home office equipment. I expect to have a few challenges in utilizing all the features, as this is a more elaborate printer than my other one. I am looking forward to getting to know my Brother HL- 3180 copier/scanner better and take full advantage of the options it offers. Merry Christmas to me! Luan Gaines/2015.

Price: $69.99

5.0 out of 5 stars An elegant, masculine timepiece, December 9, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Lucien Picard Men’s Del Campo Analog Display Japanese Quartz Black Watch is the perfect gift for a man who likes a classy, but tasteful watch, not too flashy, but certainly a quality timepiece. Vintage-inspired, this traditional men’s watch features a numberless multi-pattern dial and a date calendar. Outside the face is polished stainless steel, accessorized by a crocodile textured leather strap. For daytime or evening, this is a timepiece to wear proudly and enjoy for its features, perhaps for that special man on your gift list. Luan Gaines/2015

5.0 out of 5 stars Sugar and spice and everything nice!, November 10, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Little girls love to play dress up, put on makeup and style their hair- just like mommy. The Baby Alive Play n’ Style is a great way to share the experience with your little one, a doll complete with her own special brush, barrette and hair extension. Outfitted in a colorful dress and shoes, Christina is ready to get dolled up, maybe even add her hair extension for a more glamorous look. Her soft brunette hair is easy to brush and her size is just right for a little girl to handle. Her bright eyes are wide open. My four-year-old granddaughter is already in love with this new addition to her “family”- she loves to brush her hair and twist it into different styles to match her own. This is a good quality purchase, well made, durable and guaranteed to please. LG/2015.

4.0 out of 5 stars Black and Decker Lightweight Vac is a keeper!, November 10, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have yet to be disappointed with any Black and Decker product I have used. The Airswivel Upright Ultra Light Vacuum is no exception- it does exactly as it says. While a heavier vacuum may be needed for thicker carpets, this particular vacuum is just right for my needs- keeping a small living space clean. It turns easily, is not a problem to store and- best of all- it light enough to go upstairs and down. Though the bin is small, I haven’t had any trouble with it in terms of filling too quickly (bigger jobs require a larger vacuum). The issue for me is ease of use. This vacuum doesn’t prove a problem to navigate or carry. It only requires a single screw to put together, not a lot of parts to worry about. This is a great everyday vacuum for keeping the room clean. I expected light and easy and that’s exactly what I got.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's elementary and simple!, August 18, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Zenna Home Never Rust Aluminum Caddy gets five stars on the merits of its best feature- no rust! Every shower caddy I have bought eventually gets rusty, no matter how expensive. The idea that my shower caddy might just serve its purpose, utilitarian at best, is good enough for me. In the satin chrome finish, the caddy blends well with the shower and works fine. This item is meant to be a bit player, not a star, but like a bit player, it's job is important- hold certain items and don't rust from constant water spray. Like a soap dish or bath mat, these things keep cleaning and aggravation to a minimum and that's all I want from it.


Philips Sonicare HX8331/30 Airfloss Pro Rechargeable Electric Flosser
Philips Sonicare HX8331/30 Airfloss Pro Rechargeable Electric Flosser

4.0 out of 5 stars The perks of technology vs. the messy string of dental floss, August 18, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I haven't had the Philips Sonicare Airfloss Pro Rechargable Electric Flosser long enough to remark on its longevity, but the concept is great. Healthy teeth and gums are important, especially for older people, so this item seems like a good tool in the fight against bacteria. I was even more encouraged when our family dental hygienist recommended using the electric flosser on a regular basis. While I'll have to wait and see how long it lasts, my only complaint is the overspray- a surplus of water spraying when using the device. The water isn't coming from inside the mouth, but where the pic attaches to the base (this may be an anomaly that affects my unit alone). To avoid making a mess on the mirror- or down the front of a shirt- facing into the shower or tub keeps the spray limited to an acceptable area. While overspray could be a deal breaker- and other brands may work better in this regard- the flosser is so highly recommended that it's worth the minor irritation. Luan Gaines/2015.


Fisher-Price Little People Disney Princess Musical Dancing Palace Gift Set
Fisher-Price Little People Disney Princess Musical Dancing Palace Gift Set
13 used & new from $31.87

5.0 out of 5 stars A little bit of magic, August 12, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I’m giving this Disney Princess Fisher-Price Little People Musical Dancing set 5 stars for the joy on the face of my 3 year old granddaughter when she began to turn the handles that let her princesses and their princes’ dance across the ballroom. I should take off a star because turning the handle is a pretty noisy affair, but her glee overrides any issues I might have. It’s pretty simple to assemble, uses only four plastic screws and three batteries (not included). It’s probably not intended to last too long- subject to 3-year-old wear and tear- but this is well worth the price, hours of play, with 2 princesses and 2 princes, assorted pieces of furniture (A bed, a table, 2 chairs, a love seat, stickers and a carriage) and Disney songs that play while the figures dance. We didn’t get 15 songs, only a few, but she didn’t notice and we survived the repetition. Little girls are in thrall to princesses for such a short time, it’s worth the price and assembly to watch their eyes sparkle. Luan Gaines/2015.

DII Wicker Pet Toy and Accessory Storage Basket, Home Décor Bone Shape Bin, 21x7.5", Medium
Price: $48.64

5.0 out of 5 stars This "Bone Basket" is a keeper!, July 18, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I expected to like this unusual bone-shaped wicker basket by DII for dog toys and accessories, but this perfectly-sized “bone basket” is really cute. Well-designed with quality materials, it is sturdy and attractive, just the right size to hold leashes and toys. I love the details, the leather hinges, closure and handle, as well as the medium brown color that blends well with any décor. It’s so attractive- and functional- that I am seriously considering other options for this item: it could be used in a grandchild’s room for stray toys, or a repository for knitting supplies, any number of things. This item is both attractive and useful and I am delighted to have it in my home. Luan Gaines/2015
