AmazonBasics 2ft Retractable Lightning Cable  - Black
AmazonBasics 2ft Retractable Lightning Cable - Black

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Charger for Cars, November 20, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I held out on getting a new iPhone for quite a while because I had so many spare cables to charge my phone. Getting a new one meant the days of charging wherever I wanted with no worries were over. New cables were rather pricey, though that seems to have gone down lately.

This one is fitting with Amazon Basics high degree of quality. It charges the phone great. It's also a perfect car charger if you have a USB cord in your care. The black color makes its subtle as it sort of awkwardly hangs from the control station.

The cable does retract reasonably well. Being a somewhat bulky cord, it's not as perfectly as a finer chord might be, but there's no issue. This is a very affordable product that serves as a great charger.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fits Great, November 13, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
These things can be somewhat of a mixed bag. One wants shapewear to, well, shape. But comfort has to be part of the equation as well. It's easy to forget that there's supposed to be a balance.

This one isn't too intensive. It provides support and shape without being too constricting. I wouldn't say it's designed to completely transform your body, but that's not really the point. It compliments the figure quite well.

It's also very affordable. This is the sort of product you buy for daily wear and then actually use. It's not just for special occasions as it works. If you're in the market for shapewear, I'd definitely give this one a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully Durable Printer, November 12, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The first thing that jumped out about this All-In-One Printer was that the thing is huge. I don't think the images manage to accurately portray how mammoth this bad boy is. While it's easily the biggest printer I've ever used in a home setting, it's also one of the best.

It works flawlessly. No difficult setup, no banging the thing a hundred times to get it to work. No printer jams.

The scanner and the copier work great as well. This was also a breeze to set up wirelessly to my laptop. Having tested the connection a few times to see if I would need to constantly do it again and again, I can say that it actually stays connected! What a treat.

This is a great printer for home businesses. It's well crafted and should last you a long time. I'm very pleased with the make of this printer.


The Hound of the Baskervilles, A Study in Scarlet, The Sign of Four (Everyman's Library (Cloth))
The Hound of the Baskervilles, A Study in Scarlet, The Sign of Four (Everyman's Library (Cloth))
by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Edition: Hardcover
Price: $19.23

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Holiday Present, November 6, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
If one wants to read Sherlock Holmes, there are countless possibilities. Many of which are cheaper than this volume, which contains four of the five Holmes novels. This book's December release date seems to be set for a particular reason.

This volume is a good looking book. Much better than many Holmes editions I've seen. If this book set out to be no more than a great gifting copy, it succeeds at that.

The author's introduction/Conan Doyle information is a nice bonus. It's definitely worth reading even if you bought the book strictly for Holmes.

The fact that this is only three of the four novels is a little annoying as many will have to go out of their way to acquire the other one. But this is a good looking copy that will make a great Christmas present.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully Made, November 3, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I had mixed reactions when these baskets arrived. They're marvelously well crafted and look like a step up from similar products. But they're tiny. The picture may not be necessarily misleading, but the bigger of the three baskets really isn't that much bigger from the other two.

Which kind of limits your options. The big one is perfect for fruit and it's washable should you leave some fruit in their for a little too long. Beyond that, these are good for nick nacks or chargers, keys, or perhaps an assortment of candies.

I"m not really sure what you'd put in here from your bathroom unless you had a lot of lotion samples from the dermatologist. That sort of sums up my problem with these. They're wonderfully made products, but I can't really see much use for them aside from holding random stuff.


Radio Flyer 2-in-1 Journey Wagon

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as Much Storage Space as One Might Expect, November 3, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This wagon is a bit of a tough one to pinpoint for a review. Much of the description makes note of its storage capabilities. Which is somewhat misleading. The real question is how much of an impact something like that should make.

The four cup holders for instance, are something that don't have a ton of practicality. In order to use the two in the wagon, you can't really have kids in it. Maybe one, but two is a stretch.

It's also hard to imagine storing much in there at all with a kid. I'm not really sure where the "extra" stuff is coming from. If you wanted to have a picnic, you could probably store all you needed to with one kid in the wagon. But it'd be a bit of a squeeze.

The good news is that this is a well crafted wagon as is to be expected by Radio Flyer. It looks built to last. It just doesn't look too terrible built to hold all the stuff it says it can.


Calphalon Textiles 2-Piece Solid and Large Check Kitchen Towel Set, Graphite
Calphalon Textiles 2-Piece Solid and Large Check Kitchen Towel Set, Graphite
Price: $15.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Looking Effective Towels, October 29, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This kitchen towels are at the pricier end of what the average consumer might be inclined to pay for a product like this. That price has two things going for it though. These towels are aesthetically pleasing to the eye. It's rare to be complimented on something like a tea towel, but these are good looking enough for that to be a realistic possibility.

They also absorb well. Better than other towels I've used. It's hard to find a kitchen towel that looks good and functions well, but this one gets the job done.

Washing these is a bit of a pain. Tumble low seems excessive, but that's the price for beauty. These are good looking towels and should be treated as such.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sleek and Cool Looking Heater, October 29, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
If looks were all that mattered, this heater would get five stars. Besides a fairly bland base, the heater itself looks sleek a cool. Perfect for a young person's apartment or a bachelor pad.

As a heater, it works well. It's not too big and not too small and will easily heat a decent sized room. I've been very impressed with what this thing can do.

The remote is also a great thing to have. It works great and allows you to control the heater without having to get up. Perfect for when the heater has done its job.

This is a reasonable priced heater that does its job well. Add in the style component and you've got yourself a neat little product here. I certainly enjoy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Charming and Often Funny, October 29, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I wasn't exactly expecting this book to live up to the lofty comparisons to Tina Fey, Chelsea Handler, and Lena Dunham. Fortunately, the bar being set high didn't exactly work as a detriment. Taking into consideration the notion that this author was likely influenced by those three, it makes sense.

How to Build a Girl is honest. It's also raunch at times, which is to be expected. The 90s London backdrop gives it grit which was quite refreshing, almost reminiscent of the popular teen drama Skins. This book is comfortable in its setting at it shows.

Perhaps more like Dunham than either Handler or Fey, this book isn't as polished as it could be. It's funny, but also boring at times. Likely because it's autobiographical which can be a detriment to fiction if the author adheres to fact when fiction presents a better alternative.

This is a good book that fans of the aforementioned people will enjoy. Others will likely feel much differently.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Effective Tea Towels, October 25, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
These tea towels are a great value. They're fairly absorb water well and look stylish hanging off of the oven. I've also used them as a barrier with hot plates and am pleased with the protection they offer.

If you're looking for a new set of tea towels, look no further. They're not the top of the line, but they'll get the job done and you'll be sure to get some compliments. I'm not sure there are many towels that can say that.
