4.0 out of 5 stars Gives me the extra charging ports I desperately need., July 2, 2015
I’ve been wanting to try out the wireless chargers for about a month now since I got my Qi enabled phone. This unit from EC Technology offered the plus of having 5 additional ports for some of my other electronics. I had no problem with the wireless but I have to admit that when I started to plug in my 3rd additional unit I became aware of some “heating up” of the device. It continued to work fine and this didn’t seem to detract from the overall effectiveness of the charging but I did want to mention it. Actually, the charger did not heat up anywhere near a point that my laptop does when I’m playing games for many hours.

I live in an older unit in a historic town so my apartment has very few electrical outlets. I have been at a loss when friends or family stay over to provide them a spot to charge the electronics they bring along. This 5 port charging station has solved this problem. We no longer have to queue up to use the one or two vacant wall plugs that are available. If you need a DC 5V input, you can use this charger. There is a tiny LED that lights up to let you know your unit is charging.

Overall I had no problem figuring out how to set up and get this unit working (And I’m a 70+ year old woman with no natural affinity for all this electronic hocus-pocus). If I can work it and am happy with the results, you’ll probably be also. Review of complimentary product in exchange for honest evaluation.

5.0 out of 5 stars The craft of crocheting is having a resurgence, July 1, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a lovely set of crochet hooks in graduated sizes from 20mm to 6mm. They are shipped in a handy travel or storage case that has a window and a zipper closure. These hooks are comfortable in your hand as the shank is housed in a rubber sheath.

The color coding makes the hook you need easy to find – for you or your little ones – “please bring grandma her blue crochet hook”. The hooks are made of smooth aluminum that won’t snag or catch on the most delicate material.

I learned to crochet about 60 years ago but forgot the craft until recently. With the popularity of many DIY shows crocheting is having a resurgence. I’d forgotten how relaxing it is to have your hands “working” while you watch the evening news. I found I really like these rubber shanks as I can go for much longer without sore or aching hands.

This is a nice set and would be a practical gift for someone in a senior center/retirement community or anyone who knows how to crochet or wants to learn. Review of complimentary product in exchange for honest evaluation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funky, Fun, Big Kahuna Style Beach Wear, July 1, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a fun piece of jewelry that is more suited to a man than the ladies. It's kind of clunky and chunky and perfect for the beach or other informal settings where your silver or gold is inappropriate. It's made from stainless steel links in a box pattern. The length is 22 inches with a lobster closure. The width of the links are about a quarter inch so the necklace has a good "heft" too it.

The price point is low - oh, so low - but I've seen necklaces similar to this selling for more than twice the asking price in the shops along the beach. This is funky, fun, big Kahuna style beach wear. Review of complimentary product in exchange for honest evaluation.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Inclusive set of facial beauty brushes, July 1, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This set of Zozae Beauty brushes will satisfy every facial make-up need you’ll ever have. They are shipped in an attractive carry along case with individual slots so brushes are easy to identify. They are made from a synthetic material with bristles that don’t shed.

The assortment includes: Powder Brush, Foundation Brush, Angled Blush/Contour Brush, Lip Brush, Angled Eyeliner Brush, Eyeshadow Brush, Tapered Blending Brush, and a Flat Concealer Brush.

I usually wash my brushes by swishing them in a little tepid water and a small drop of shampoo. I rub them gently with my fingers and rinse under cool water. Then they can be dried by laying on a terry towel. The company claims: “100% SATISFACTION GUARANTEED! These luxurious make-up brushes will not shed after washing given the correct care”.

This really is a lovely and inclusive set and would make an excellent gift for a sweet 16, a birthday or for your BFF anytime. Review of complimentary product in exchange for honest evaluation.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm going to display my antique Christmas ornament collection, June 30, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a very pretty presentation platter in a wave pattern and made from mirror finish stainless steel food grade material. I can see it being used in so many ways. I plan to use mine during the Christmas Season to present my collection of antique tree balls. There is an endless array of items that can be put on this tray: cupcakes, petit fours, loaf-cake slices, fruit, candy, a collection of origami – ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING can only look better with the proper presentation.

The tray assembled easily. There is a bottom pillar that attaches with a Phillip’s head screw at the base. You then lay the top tier - lining up the holes - and insert the two-sided screw. Finally you add the top decorative pillar and ball and the assembly is complete. Very simple. The finished tray is about 9 inches high. The bottom tray is a little under 11 inches and the top tray is almost 8 inches. This triangular configuration is pleasing to the eye.

This tray can be dressed up or dressed down to fit into any décor. As I said at the first – it is very pretty. Review of complimentary product in exchange for honest evaluation.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great money saver, June 30, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These are good for shipping light flexible items such as clothing. They're also good for paperback books. The seal seems sturdy but I usually put a piece of shipping tape along the closure anyway - just in case. This is an excellent money saver if you ship a lot of items.

5.0 out of 5 stars A "get-up-and-move" game that's fun for the young and the young at heart., June 30, 2015
This review is from: Card 'N' Go Seek Game (Toy)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This game from Mattel will be a great addition for family fun night. The age bracket listed is 7 to 15 but I think much younger players will have no problem with a little guidance. It can even be played as teams of a child and an adult. The object, like your classic scavenger hunt, is to find “stuff” – red stuff, sweet stuff, there are 150 cards of “stuff”. The first person to return with the object wins that card. The cards are of 3 colors and to win the game you must get 3 cards of one color or one card of each color. This is a very simple premise but the real object of the game is that it gets everyone off their duff and moving.

Interactive play with the kids can be so rewarding this is what they’ll remember and take with them to adulthood. As a senior looking back I remember the long hot summers spent with my cousin playing board games with my aunt and uncle. Not the heat – or the poor neighborhood – or the clothes hanging limp on the line – what I remember is the laughing and fun of a family game.

Card’N’Go Seek comes in an oddly shaped, portable case with 150 cards and instructions. And the best part – NO BATTERIES! This will be a good choice for any family that has a game night (or wants to start)

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Attractive, June 29, 2015
Bamboo is the “go-to” wood these days. It’s strong, attractive, sustainable and fits into any décor. This Yeesite charging station measures about 3-1/2 inches across and is nice-looking whereever you put it. The box comes with the charging pad, a USB cable and wall plug in. The unit will work with any Qi-enabled tablet or phone.

All you have to do is connect the charging pad to a power source and then lay your compatible phone on top of the pad. Be sure that the surface you use is flat and level. The indicator light will let you know that the device is charging. I’ve known people who have not liked some brands of this style of charger because they could not get their phone aligned properly. I had no problem with this one – I laid my unit on the charger and bumped it a time or two until the indicator light came on and that was it. Easy Peasy.

At 3-1/2 inches it will do fine for any phone or small tablet. Review of complimentary product in exchange for honest evaluation.

Fiber One Snacks Bar Salted Cheesecake, Caramel, 5 Count (Pack of 12)

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing - I prefer the Fiber One 90 calorie line of products., June 29, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I’ve been very happy with a lot of the Fiber One 90 calorie snacks. Unfortunately, this is a Fiber One Outlier. The Cheesecake bar has 150 calories, 10g of sugar and 5g of fiber. The big turn off for me is that this bar is so cloyingly sweet. I’d be better off having my favorite Reese’s Peanut butter cup and a spoon of Metamucil as an afternoon snack.

The bar itself is about 3” square but the picture on the box makes it look much larger. The little caramel candies depicted must be minis. The bottom line is that I eat a lot of snacks that are not healthy and have a lot of sugar so I’m not all militant on health. What turns me off to this Cheesecake bar is that the buyer is going to assume it’s healthy (yes, I know, they should read the label). Regrettably, it’s just another snack that’s high in all the bad stuff with an adequate dose of fiber that lets the advertisers run amok with their claims. Too bad, this company has many good products.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good Pre-T-Ball practice set for kids 3 to 5 years old, June 29, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a foam bat and ball that is specifically designed to get your kids comfortable with the feel and swing of a bat. It is expressly designed for Pre-T-ball youngsters (3 to 5 years old). They can watch their older friends, neighbors or siblings out on the field and then go home and have their own personal equipment to give them a leg up for when they get older and ready for the BIG (T-ball) league.

The foam body allows them to take good swings without the danger of causing (too much) harm. It’s very safe for the young ones. The bat is 21 inches long but the ball is very small. I think that an additional ball of a larger dimension would be a good adjunct to this set. I understand that you cannot pick your favorite color as they randomly ship – Again, a single color would have been a better choice for the distributor but that is not a star reducing slip.

This is a nice set for both fun and serious practice. Review of complimentary product in exchange for honest evaluation.
