1.0 out of 5 stars disappointed, July 21, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I'm not sure how these are considered to be noise canceling. I tried them out and (yes I turned them on with the battery installed) and could still hear other noises around me. I think these are supposed to be a cheap alternative to Bose noise canceling headphones, but they don't even come close. Extremely disappointed in these flimsy ear buds especially when considering the Panasonic name.

We've had a muddy backyard this year for some reason, and have gone through multiple towels cleaning 3 sets of big dog paws before they come into the house. This is the best one yet! It really gets the mud and the dirt of their paws and I've noticed my floors are cleaner because of it. The microfiber does an amazing job and it is a great size. I definitely recommend using this over a regular shower towel!

I love Artscape, so it is no surprise that I find this film to be top notch. It is true that it isn't to be used on a window in a private room (i.e. bathroom), but it does provide a modicum of privacy for a door. I have a window on my back door that looks into the kitchen. This artscape film allows me to not have some privacy and in a very beautiful way. It is easy to install, and I can't say a bad thing about it!

4.0 out of 5 stars So far so good! But will it last?, June 25, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I hung this on a tree about 15 feet away from my front window and can see the numbers very clearly from there. I find the thermometer to be accurate. I like the color of the thermometer as well.

What I didn't like was how flimsy it feels. It feels less substantial than a typical kitchen clock. I've had it up for a few weeks now, but I'm not sure how well it would stand up year after year.

I usually like Essie Products, but this one came to me thickened and hard to apply. I applied it and instead of a nice Coral, I had a chunky orange. Im not sure what happened, but I cannot recommend this as is.

1.0 out of 5 stars AVOID!!, June 16, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Honestly, it's hard for me to write this review - I haven't read a book that has made me this angry in a long time.

I chose this book to review based on its premise - using ADHD to your advantage. To give you my background and why I would be interested in this would be the fact that I have severe ADHD Combined Type (Inattentive and Hyperactive). I am a college graduate and have worked with students with learning disabilities. I work with students using what's called the "Strengths Perspective" from Social Work - this is using the students' strengths to overcome their weaknesses (i.e. using ADHD's intrinsic creativity and quick thinking vs fighting against it. So this book seems to be right up my alley right?

Absolutely not. It is hard for me to say what angered me most - his assertion of not using medicine with ADHD, or his self diagnosis of ADHD. Adults who have been legitimately diagnosed with ADHD know how difficult it is to get a correct diagnosis. To be diagnosed as an adult, you have to show proof of ADHD in your childhood through childhood records, interviews with your family, rating scales, with a qualified mental health professional. Dr. Archer self diagnosed himself with ADHD, which people with ADHD know happens all the time. How many people in our lives say "Oh I have ADHD too?' Yes, everyone shows symptoms of ADHD from time to time, but to actually have it, it MUST have (and continue to do so) interfered with your daily functioning since you were a child. It doesn't let up, and it doesn't begin when you're an adult. Even though Dr. Archer is a mental health professional, if he wanted to be diagnosed, he needed to see another doctor. His self diagnosis seems convenient.

In this vein, I also took umbrage at his description of people with ADHD as "ADHDers". I am more than a diagnosis, and have multiple facets to myself. not just as a person with ADHD. He continuously labels people throughout the book, and that also got my ire up.

There is so much wrong with this book, I could honestly write a research paper on it. This book is pop psychology at its worst. Dr. Archer lost any credibility with his supposed self diagnosis. And reading through the references he used did not impress me. He didn't use academic research and refereed journal articles. Often he used popular news sources such as CNN or online health sites like WebMD. Or his own books!

Basically avoid this book like the plague! There are so many books that address this subject better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great table cloth!, May 19, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
While I would prefer a different shade of blue to go with my home decor, this table cloth is great! It is truly the blue that you see in the picture. It fits well on my large dining room table. While I haven't spilled anything (yet) on it to be able to speak of it's stain resistance, it looks great!

It is amazing how many uses you can find for little plastic storage bags. These are just great at whatever job I use them for! They zip shut and stay shut and don't break open like lesser brands! I highly recommend them!

1.0 out of 5 stars The Spring Had Sprung!, April 25, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I asked my husband to install this, and he wrestled with it for half an hour just to find out that the spring inside the item was "sprung" and wouldn't stay in position. Looking at it myself, I don't think that this feels like a 99 dollar item. Look at the Simple Human one instead!
