Butt Bench Review and Giveaway

While doing a research paper for psychology I came across the Butt Bench website. I know your thinking how on earth did she come across a website like that while doing a research paper for psychology…lol. With developmental Psychology we are going through the life process and as our semester is coming to an end, so is our book. My assignment was on the older generation and trying to keep them safe. As our older generation is getting older we know their balances are getting unstable, if they fall they are more prone to breaking bones and the healing process is slow and they are more prone to infections.

16stats_graphic-articleInlineNow with the Butt Bench we can try to prevent this type of accident in our homes. Plus it is like no other bath seat, which is why I had to review it. The Butt Bench does not have those metal legs that take up space and looks like a “medical” device. Instead it is stylish and looks great. It sits right on top of your existing tub with nothing to install, just set the suction cups to keep from sliding. Super easy!!!

Ok so I’m not as old as I feel some days so I had other ideas for the Butt Bench. Ladies think of all the times your in the shower shaving your legs, for me it is such a pain twisting and turning. This bench makes a great place to sit without being uncomfortable. Plus it is big enough to keep everything right there next to you. The one thing Bill who I am working with did advise me, “If you do have children, please heed our warnings about lil’ boys diving off the seat”. My little guy is eight so for me it was not to much of a concern because he knows better, but it gives him a great place to put his tub toys and I now have less water on the floor.

I fell in love with the Pine Butt Bench, they also come in Pink, White and Ceder (which is currently sold out).

Butt benches measure 29 inches in length and will fit a standard size tub. There should be at least an inch of space on the sides of the tub where the Butt Bench can rest on, it also does not work on bathtubs over 60 years old, will not work on bathtubs with glass sliding doors. It holds up to 300 lbs.

We received our Butt Bench for this review and opinions are mine and mine alone. Right now you can order a Butt Bench for yourself or a loved one for starting at $29.99. You also have a chance to win one from our sponsor. Or purchase for someone you love, they will not be disappointed!!!

#9 The Great UGLee Pen! Review and Giveaway

                     The UGLee Pen, an ergonomic pen, is good for everyone who writes, and is especially helpful to people who experience pain and discomfort when writing.  When I was first chosen to review the UGLee pen I had never even seen one. All I could think was, “Great I can carry an “ugly” pen around class to class”.  This was clearly a reason I stared doing reviews.  I’m a full time college student, I write a lot. Ok that’s an understatement I write so much I go though pens like kids go through chocolate milk.

UGLee pen

Ok I’ll admit the UGLee Pen! is really not an “ugly pen”. It has become like my best friend, I take it everywhere. Once I left class because I left it in the car, missing 10 mins of Psychology class was worth it because we take more lecture notes than any other class I have. This pen has more advantages than any pen I have ever used.

The Plus Sides to the UGLee Pen!

* It has an amazing grip that feels like jelly making writing much more bearable.

* If you drop it on the desk or on a book it will not roll away. (Actually the first time I dropped in on my book I had to peal it off, so not only is it a pen it has become my past time sitting though lectures)

* The ink seems to last a lot longer than normal pens. (Instead of going through 3 pens this week I just killed off my first UGLee pen)

The Disadvantages to the UGLee Pen!

Causes you to miss class time….ok really that’s all I have.

enterUGLeepenI have one I’d love for someone to try. If you would like to try the UGLee Pen for yourself leave a blog comment on why you want to try UGLee Pen. Winner will be drawn Oct. 11, 2013 we will use to pick a winner.

These can be hung from the tree as they are attached with a gold hanging piece. I think I might hang them from our tree and have Hunter find them. They are very soft and do have small pieces. I’ve pulled on them and nothing has come off but I would not recommended for a very small child.

They also carry two other designs with different microbes inside.

There were a few things I loved about the Nexticare Natural Pain Relief. First unlike most pain relief creams it did not have a smell. For the first time I was able to put something on and not want to gag all night. Second it is light weight and not greasy when you apply it. Third is I could feel it work, I mean really work. Forth I only had to apply it twice a day- once when I woke up and once before bed. It had a slight tingle and I knew right away when my pain in my wrist seemed to vanish.  I have since thrown away every other cream that has that claimed it would work.

This product had a few good uses not only did I use it for the pain I have in my wrist but I also found that it worked great on the kids mosquito bites and make them stop itching.

Shoulder Buddy Review

sb1     A few days ago I introduced Hunter to Shoulder Buddies. I’ve been trying to get this review in for the last few weeks, but the time just never seemed right. The last few days ago my sister took my daughter so it was just me and Hunter. Yup I knew this was going to be a great time to introduce them.

Hunter and his new friend Max

Hunter and his new friend Ding

Hunter named his new friend Ding and for the last few days Ding has gone everywhere with us. Ding made a whole lot of friends at McDonald’s yesterday, and at the park today. Hunter was happy to share him with everyone, but Ding seemed to like Hunter’s shoulder most of all.

hunter2  Hunter wanted to see if Ding would fall off so he gave him a little push, and yet like magic   he did not go anywhere.

Ding is a Shoulder Buddy. Like him his friends all come with symbols on there bellies. They now also come with sports mascots, in Hello Kitty, and with a gem in their tummies.

These would make a great Christmas/birthday gift or a just because gift.  I know I am ordering some for the stocking this year for each of the kids.

Now I know you have to be wondering how Ding or his friends stay on without falling off?

maxShoulder Buddies have a magnet on there bottom and have a thin magnet about the size of a half-dollar that you place under the child’s shirt.

Shoulder Buddies can be bought on-line for $5.99 or you can find them in a store near you.

What would you do with your Shoulder Buddy? Leave a comment and one lucky winner will receive a Should Buddy of their own. Winner will be picked on August 22nd through

Mountain House Review and Giveaway- Ended

Today we decided we would start the product test for the many bags of freeze dried food from Mountain House.I got the kids up pretty early today to hit the store for wraps so we could start our test out right. Once I got home the first thing I did was reach for the frying pan, before grabbing our first bag of Mountain House Freeze Dried Breakfast Skillet. Good thing I read directions and was surprised to find I did not need the pan, nor a microwave. All we had to do was add 1 1/2 cups of boiling water to the bag stir and let it sit for 8-9 mins. The first thing I thought was great nothing like soggy wraps for breakfast.

When I opened the bag I was shocked to find most of the water had absorbed into the food and out came the most delicious looking breakfast mix ever. It was packed full of hash browns, scrambled eggs, sausage, peppers and onions. A little water was still in the bag but once I poured it all out in a bowl to start the wraps I noticed it was not going to dry out, nor was it going to be soggy either.

Breakfast Breakfast 2I love the fact I was able to boil water and add it to the mix and walk away without having to worry about “burning” breakfast as I was folding laundry. The Breakfast Skillet tasted so good and was so easy to make, I think I found my new favorite breakfast food when I’m on the go, plus it would save a trip to McDonalds for a dried out burrito in the mornings. I added Mozzarella cheese and very light mustard to ours. This morning we managed to get 13 grams of protein in.

Thanks to the kids and their ability to eat so fast I was unable to get pictures of their lunch. My daughter Erin decided she wanted to give the freeze dried Buffalo Chicken a try. She wanted to add blue cheese and mozzarella cheese. I did manage to sneak in a bit and I’m still trying to figure out  how freeze dried food can taste so good. We had a lot left, seeing it tasted so good we used the rest of it to make the greatest chicken wing dip I have ever had. Hunter thought it was too spicy so we made the freeze dried chicken salad. With it being warm neither of us cared to much for it, but once we put it in the refrigerator and it was cold it made a great lunch. It was loaded with chicken and cranberries which gave it a sweet and yet delectable taste.

All of these were made from the pouch they came in and with no mess it was an easy breakfast and lunch, and clean up was simple. If you have any left all you do is close up the pouch and refrigerate.

We have a special giveaway for our readers. How about a box packed full of some of the most amazing food. You can take it camping, or just eat at home. All that is required is hot water and a few minutes to let it sit and cook. Our sponsor has offered one of our readers a chance to try Mountain House Best Seller Kit which contains

Breakfast: Scrambled Eggs and Cheese with Ham

Entrees: Beef Stroganoff with Noodles

Lasagna with Meat Sauce

Chicken Teriyaki with Rice

Beef Stew

Dessert: Raspberry Crumble
