5.0 out of 5 stars Just as good as the Initialed ones (and the Dollar Store ones), March 25, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have these black "huggable" style hangers from a well known initialed personality who sells wares on the shopping network as well as in Target. I also have snagged a few of these from my local Dollar Store-I always buy black ones). I wish I could say I noticed a difference, but I don't These look exactly like the initialed ones (sans initial) and the Dollar Store ones. I would note that I received the 30 set to review but if I purchased these, I would get the 50 set, which is a better deal than the known set being offered at Target and matches the price-point of the Dollar Store ones (two for a dollar). So if you are looking to swap out more than a few hangers, I highly recommend the AmazonBasics velvet suit hangers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looks GREAT, Works well, HAS protection and good price point., March 20, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This case looks great, has great protection for your iPad and its at a great price point. This case is cheaper than Apple's Folio and it provides the same protection. Granted I've had just about every case, folio, cover for all of our iPad. We have every model of the iPad in my family and here's the thing, they are not perfect. the pad snaps in pretty easy but could be a pain to get out when you want to remove it. Some people complain about this but think about for a second. Wouldn't you want this to be kind of a pain to remove your iPad from any case or folio? Why would you want it to come out so easy? This case does the job and looks great while doing it. This is the best deal in town.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cork Bulletin Board...Sturdy, Durable, March 20, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a great Cork Bulletin Board. I was drawn to it's size. 2x3. Not too small and not HUGE. I place cork board in my hallways like frames and display my children's art work. I usually spray paint them black to give them a sleeker look but also enjoy the natural cork appearance. This cork board went up easily with the hardware and anchors provided. The cork is good quality (not dry and cracked like some others I have seen). I recommend this cork bulletin board for home, and light business use.


Perfect Fitness Rip Deck System

4.0 out of 5 stars Great add-on for your home gym and excellent chest workout to mix things up., March 20, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
At first glance it looks like it takes the old school pushup and advances the basic move into the new age, making for a more challenging, possibly more rewarding chest workout plus it should complement to your home gym.
What Is The Perfect Rip Deck?
So what is it? Remember the folks who made the Perfect Pushup? They make the Perfect Rip Deck which is a piece of equipment that’s great for working your upper body and core. The easiest way to describe its main function is this: Think of doing a clap pushup where you go down, then push up, then clap in between. Your hands kind of do the same motion with the Perfect Rip Deck, except that with this tool, your hands slide on a track.

So how does it work? There are the removable pushup stands, which you can use for your basic pushups. Using those keeps your wrists in the right place and prevent stress on the joints, allowing for deeper pushups. When you plug the stands into the tracks, that allows you to slide your hands as you do the pushup — meaning you can start wide, push up, then slide your hands in right under your shoulders, then slide them back down. The Perfect Rip Deck allows you to do a number of variations, too, like plank, punch-ups and even mountain climbers.
Using the track makes it feel like your muscles are always engaged in the exercise. With pushups, it can be easy to cheat a little bit — either resting at the top or bottom — but the track keeps you in motion. It only takes a few exercises to feel your pecs, forearms and triceps tighten up. It’s not rocket science here; this just takes a tried, tested and true exercise and makes it better. The results will come.

Who Is It For?
This would be ideal for someone who is doing P90x but has plateaued with the Chest & Back workout. As you might recall, that workout focuses mostly on pushups and pull-ups, so if the pushups have become too easy for you, the Perfect Rip Deck is going to push you much harder.

This is also a good option for someone who has a home gym and wants to do more chest, but doesn’t necessarily have the space to add a bench press, a big bar and a ton of free weights. Pushups alone can only take you so far, but using the Perfect Rip Deck — and all of the variations of the moves — will take you much further.

5.0 out of 5 stars Postcards from Cookie is a Heartfelt Feel good Story, March 20, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I was instantly drawn to Postcards from Cookie just because of it's connection to motherhood, which I have a personal interest in currently: relationships between mother and child, mother and adult child, and how they intertwine. What I loved about this book was it's honesty. Caroline Clarke shares a story which by today's standards would probably have been splashed all over TMZ or some other news tabloid media outlet, but since this happened at a time when secrets such as this were keep deeply locked away, we get a rare chance to hear someone's store unfiltered by media sensationalism. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good memoir, mothers, daughters, adoptive parents and birth parents who have given up a child for adoption. A+!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good entry level In-Ear Headphone. SOund quality "can" be excellent with a little help., February 19, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Headphones! I’m a junkie so when giving the chance to review these, I jumped on it. I listen to all genres of music and have well over 30 pairs of headphones ranging from $40 ear buds for the gym to over $1,000 pair of cans when I really want an amazing sound.

The in-ear IE-CTI300s are the 2nd gen for these, look just like the 1st gen but Onkyo decided to shows its love for iPhone and iPad with dedicated IE-CTI300 headphones. Now you can skip tracks, make volume adjustments, and accept or reject calls at the touch of a button on the cable. As a premium hi-fi product, the detachable cable features an oxygen-free 6N copper core sealed in transparent elastomer to reduce tangles and touch noise. Large and I mean LARGE 14.3 mm (9/16 ̋) dynamic drivers reproduce an decent range of frequencies with (can be) clear mid-range performance. Bass is punchy and musical while leaving plenty of headroom for the treble to breathe. Light, stylish, and comfortable to wear when you’re out and about, the IE-CTI300s are a pretty good high-fidelity partner for your iPod® or iOS device.

The good:
Seamless Control of Apple Devices: You’ll find it easier to cue and control your media with the IE-CTI300. Inline controls work with all Apple devices to make on-the-fly adjustments easier. If a call comes in, just tap a button on the control. Your music will mute automatically and you can start talking straight away, with your caller’s voice coming clean and clear through the earphones

High Purity Copper-Core Cable for Pure Sound: The headphone's cable is of critical importance to its sound quality. The IE-CTI300 comes with a 6N oxygen-free copper cable, which delivers almost zero resistance for better sound quality. As with all Onkyo headphones, it's also detachable for easy replacement

The Sound: The IE-CTI300s feature an uncommonly large 14.3 mm (9/16"̋) dynamic or moving-coil-type transducer. The design is noted for its durability, accuracy, and ability to reproduce a wide frequency bandwidth. The sound quality could be excellent but you ultimately determine how well you sound quality could be.

Comfortable for Long Listening Sessions: Four pairs of earpads in a range of sizes are included to ensure a comfortable, secure fit and excellent sound isolation. The ergonomic soft-touch earpads provide a firm, comfortable seal against ambient noise, and won't fatigue during longer sessions. Running for a train or putting your feet up at home, you'll hardly know you're wearing them.

The Bottom Line: Experienced headphone users agree that bass response isn't a question of quantity, but quality. Drowning in poorly defined bass does no music any favors, whereas well-balanced low frequencies add weight and dynamism to all kinds of music. These could be some excellent headphones but they will need some help. You will have to adjust the EQ settings on your device in order to achieve the sound quality you want. If you willing to adjust the setting on your device, this is a good choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trapped Under The Sea, Armageddon under the sea, February 19, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I like many others was intrigued by the title and brief synopsis of this book…"harrowing story of five men who were sent into a dark, airless, miles-long tunnel, hundreds of feet below the ocean, to do a nearly impossible job—with deadly results." Then I got nervous…would the book live up to it's flashy teaser??? I am pleased to say it did! The story moves at a pretty good clip. I agree with some of the other reviewers, there are a few chapters meant to give background information on characters and the state of affairs that dragged slightly, but I personally found much of the information shared interesting. The story is one I feel should probably be a screenplay and even if the story never leaves these pages, it is one that should be read. Horrible mistakes were made, lives were risked for the sake of time and convenience and since there is no way to ever bring back those who made the ultimate sacrifice, it's paramount there stories be told and remembered. Glad I took the time to read this book and I recommend others do the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works for me!, February 19, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
What's great about it: Easy to put on. Protects the back which was my goal, Color is awesome. Does exactly what it suppose to do.

What's not so great: May not work well with other smart cases or some keyboards to protect the front, You may have to shave some of the plastic of the case in order to get both case to work together. If your careful no big deal.

4.0 out of 5 stars I'll Take it!, February 19, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Welcome to the iPad case games. If your anything like me, you’ve had a boat load of these. Some you like, some you didn’t like, some that was cheap and some that was way too expensive. Here comes the Logitech Folio Protective Case for iPad Air, Carbon Black. Logitech usally makes good products plus it Carbon Black (that’s got my name wriiten all over it hahahaha) So far GREAT case.

The Air snaps into place and is secure. No problems with access points. The cover, to me, looks like a nylon weave that is easy to hold on to plus it stays shut with magnets. The Air goes on when you open, off when you close. Both the front and back are well protected. The upright reading angle works great but you may need to get use to the angle. For typing, if you fold back the cover and turn it around, there is a slight rise to the back, not a lot but better than completely flat. The case is about a 1/4" larger than the Air so it doesn’t add that much bulk.

The only thing that you will have to watch out for is there are two retaining points, which hold the iPad in the cover. The retaining points are plastic, which could break if your not careful. If those pieces break, then the Air will fall out. I’m really careful about my cases and iPad so that is not a problem for me. If you rough on your stuff, you may want to look elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Radio Flyer Takes a Classic and Makes it Better, February 9, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Who doesn't love a classic red Radio Flyer wagon? This is definitely a modern take on a beloved classic. As a family of six we already own a Radio flyer wagon-a bit bigger than this one but it doesn't have the seat belts and bag in the back. I used that wagon to take my girls around the neighborhood and to the beach. Now with this updated wagon (old wagon is now the official Girl Scout cookie mobile for our door to door travels) my boys can sit and have seat belts-a definite necessity for my boys. The bag in the back-ingenius! The handle that folds under the wagon for easy storage and car transport-all car owners thank you! All in all, thoughtfully designed. My one request is always the rubber wheels, but the plastic wheels are high quality and sturdy as heck.
