LolliZ Coloring Pencils

I purchased from seller LolliZ, Coloring Pencils. I always on the lookout for coloring pencils to use to help me de-stress from my college classes. I have tried several so far and not been happy or impressed with many of them, either they are too light, break easily, hard to sharpen or leave a waxy film and are hard to blend.

These did not leave behind a waxy film.  If you want a deeper color, you do have to press a bit harder.

3 levels of pressing down to
get 3 different shades of black
To get black to not look like a dark gray, you have to press a bit hard, to get a truly and not see the through and get the deepest black, you have to press hard. 




Pros:
  • Great variety of colors
  • Not a great strain on hand to get darker colors

Cons:
  • Colors are not labeled
  • Breaks constantly
  • Try to sharpen and it will break down under the wood
  • Dull quickly

Overall: 
Love the vibrant colors, just wish they would not break and become dull so easily.


DISCLAIMER:  I received these coloring pencils for free in exchange for giving my honest opinion. I do not have a relationship with the seller and manufacturer of this product.

Cellbell iPhone 6 Tempered Glass Screen Protection

I purchased from seller Bagtag-Store, Cellbell Tempered Glass Screen for iPhone 6.  I had replaced the screen saver the store put on my phone because it had developed several scratches, with a Tempered Glass Screens protector. Shortly after changing screen covers, I had my phone in a barely there phone case, which was more decorative then anything else and dropped my phone, on carpet, walking into class one day. I picked up my phone and saw what looked like these 2 long cracks and several smaller ones. My husband saw it and thought I had cracked the phone, but in fact, I had a tempered glass screen protector on my phone and it had taken all the damage, when I took it off to check and replace, my phone was unharmed. I could not help but noticed the difference in thickness and sturdiness when I was replacing the original screen cover with this screen protector.  While this is only 0.3 mm thick, it does not bend.


Pros:
  • Reliable protection from drops
  • Protects from scratches
  • Reliable bubble free installation
  • Touch screen keeps accuracy
  • Has an oops forgiveness when installing, allows you to pull up at that time and realign before you press and seal to screen

Cons:
  • none


Overall: 
It is definitely worth the money. It will save your sanity, if you are a klutz and drop your phone. Great way to protect your phones screens.

iPhone 5 Screen Protection - Helps save your childs screen from themselves

I purchased from seller Bagtag-Store, Cellbell Tempered Glass Screen for iPhone 5.  I found with my own phone how well the Tempered Glass Screens protect. I had my phone in a barely there phone case, which was more decorative then anything else and dropped my phone, on carpet, walking into class one day. I picked up my phone and saw what looked like these 2 long cracks and several smaller ones. My husband saw it and thought I had cracked the phone, but in fact, I had a tempered glass screen protector on my phone and it had taken all the damage, when I took it off to check and replace, my phone was unharmed. My son has been trying different phone cases, but he won’t leave them on more than a day unless it is extremely thin. I had to get him a tempered screen because I was afraid he would damage his phone, as I have caught him several times throwing it up and catching it. Now I do not have to worry as much.




Pros:
  • Reliable protection from drops
  • Protects from scratches
  • Reliable bubble free installation
  • Touch screen keeps accuracy
  • Has an oops forgiveness when installing, allows you to pull up at that time and realign before you press and seal to screen

Cons:
  • none

Overall: 
It is definitely worth the money. It will save your sanity, if you are a klutz and drop your phone. Great way to protect your phones screens.

10 USB Port Charging Station

I purchased from seller POAO, LLC, 10 USB Port charging station. I had run into issues of not having enough USB connections for people to connect to be able to charge their devices during parties/gatherings. Because, honestly, who thinks to carry USB power adapters, they may have their cable with them, but not the power adapters. We have 3 phones, 4 ipods, 3 ipads, 2 kindles, 10 bluetooth earbuds, 4 charging cases, 3 portable batteries, then we add in guests. We are always looking for more
 

Pros:
  • Allows 10 connections while using only 1 outlet
  • Logo lights up to let you know that it is receiving power
  • 2 arms swing out with 5 ports each, allowing you to only open side as needed
  • Built in over charge protection
  • Built in surge protection

Cons:
  •  none

Overall: 
Works great. Would definitely recommend for people who have multiple devices and/or entertain and want to let others charge if they need to.


DISCLAIMER:  I received charging port for free in exchange for giving my honest opinion. I do not have a relationship with the seller and manufacturer of this product.

Great way to keep track of weight


I purchased from seller Easy@Home, Digital Bluetooth Weight and BMI Smart Scale. My doctor is always asking me how I have been tracking my weight, my response has been that I measure it by how my clothes fit, but that I have not had a scale in my home in 25 years.





Pros:
  • Works with IOS and Android
  • Requires no calibration (has auto calibration technology)
  • Thick tempered glass
  • 4 non slip/non-scratch feet
  • App lets you set you each person for tracking each separately
  • Measures in lbs or kg (switch located in bottom in battery compartment)


Cons:
  • Show 3-8 lbs more than the official weigh-in at the doctors
  • Has to be in the flattest part of the house – I walked around the downstairs and weighed myself in different parts, on hardwood and vinyl floors, from as little as 3 feet to as much as 60 feet across the house and my weight varied by 8 lbs in the space of 5 minutes
  • Box image is misleading, it shows 580 kg which according to several different conversion sites is over 1200 lbs but the box states max weight is 400 lbs.


Overall: 

If you want to monitor a set up or down or track what your BMI is then this would be good for you, as long as you weigh under 400 lbs, sorry honey you don’t qualify. Pick a place in your home and realize that it may be weighing you at a higher weight than you would get officially at your doctors office. Best thing to do is get weighed at the doctors, come home and weigh yourself and write the difference down. Then keep the digital record on your phone, you can then track and have a record making note of the difference between your doctors scale and its and be able to say your record on the phone says xyz weight but there is a difference of x so minus that from each weigh for a more accurate weight.
