These are sweet little mason jars the size of a fat shot glass, perfect for my daughter's beer themed wedding shower! They are sturdy glass with a simple, but fun design and we plan to use them as favors, filled with something sweet.

2.0 out of 5 stars The clock ran out for me., April 18, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Starts out strong with a clever, suspenseful story. We follow a young girl who finds herself embroiled in something she is really unaware of and watch as she gradually unravels the craziness around her.

Trouble is- the book is very long with so many side tales and characters who move in and out of the story that I needed a roadmap to recall who people were and what had happened in previous chapters, and I felt like I was constantly trying to piece things together to be sure I hadn't missed or forgotten something when things became confusing. It jumps around quite a bit and finally lands in a rather fantastical sci-fi finish that takes it to another level.

I would have preferred a linear tale of the main character (who was very well developed and interesting to follow) and less peering in and out of her life and the lives of many other characters. Or, at the very least, some serious editing, as it got a bit too long. It began with a nice fast pace but eventually became a slog of a read for me. We read this as a book group pick and many felt the same way I did, though a few members really enjoyed the entire book and all its nuances. It certainly was unpredictable.

Great classic tale of the dangers that can befall society. The premise of Big Brother is even more applicable as time goes on and technology expands. This book is bound to mean more every year that passes.

Great dryer with multiple settings, perfect for fast drying straight, or gentle drying my waves. Love the choice of speeds and heat settings and the lightweight feel of the dryer, with nice long cord for convenience. Well made look and feel and reasonable price. Can't ask for much more than that!

1.0 out of 5 stars Just no., April 18, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I heard great things about this product, and thought it might be the perfect thing to carry in my bag and get a gentle perk up whenever I was feeling a slump. I love coffee, so a nice coffee flavored treat should be a yummy pick me up, right? Well...

My first issue is that you have to buy a ton of these just to give it a try and they are not cheap! Secondly, they are packaged in random groups of four cubes (so you don't choose one of the three flavors, you get a surprise each time). Thirdly, a surprise is not fun in this case- not all the flavors taste very good, and, in fact, some of them are pretty awful. And, consider the fact that you really only want to have one or two at a time, but are left with an open package that's not resealable. Why are they packaged like this? If I was able to pick up a pack of two in a flavor I like, it would be much more convenient and enjoyable.

Chewable coffee is probably a good description, but to relate them to gummies would be a mistake. They are sugar coated jellies, with a very different texture and a pretty strong flavor better described as licking smokey coffee grounds, rather than the taste of a good cup of java. Some flavors are a little milder and more pleasant than others, but since they are not marked or differentiated I have no idea which flavor is which and can't recommend one flavor over another.

Nice idea.."nice try, but no cigar" as they say. Speaking of cigars, you may also find that your breath is not too pleasant, worse than coffee breath, after chewing these, so you'll want to carry mints as well. Too bad.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great idea- shattered. :(, January 21, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These are beautiful glasses and so unique, but so thin and delicate that both of the glasses I ordered arrived broken. They really need to be created with a heavier glass even to hold up to use, as I'd imagine they'd easily crack even with handwashing if they got tapped or bumped. The inner "tail" is sweet, but connected to a super thin outer layer.

Sweet and well-made cast iron beauties- perfect as book ends, but my daughter has chosen to use them as door stops in her apartment and they look adorable! Nice, substantial size and unique design. Love them!

Awesome cotton bandanas with a size you can actually use! Makes a great head wrap or scarf when working out or gardening and washes beautifully, so that it is soft and comfy. Love the variety of colors, too.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just a few more pages would have made it a five-star...., September 27, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Bought this planner at the beginning of the school year because I love the column style. I have a very hard time finding planners in the size and setup that I like, and while I don't ordinarily want to purchase fill-in styles, I thought it would be fine going with an undated version to get the format I wanted.

Well, I pulled out my school calendar and began filling in the weeks. Imagine my surprise when I got to the end of the planner and still had three weeks left of school that did not fit. Perhaps they intended that vacation weeks would not be included? Who doesn't use the entire schedule, and make plans during those off weeks, though? For the minimal amount of paper it would have cost to add a few more blank pages, it would have been sufficient to cover any length of school year. Better to have some extra pages rather than not enough, right?

Aside from that, it is a cute planner with fun print and colors and a format that would be very convenient....if it covered an entire school year. Here in New England we have a set amount of days in session, and I sure imagine it is the same all over the country. While it may vary from place to place, it would have been nice if that were accounted for by having plenty of extra pages for differing schedules, or for mistakes, since it's not dated.

Dissappointed.

Great version of the mid-rise skinny jeans that I love from Levi's. Soft, comfortable lighter weight denim washes great and fits beautifully.
