This digital scale not only functions very well, it looks great sitting on the kitchen counter, too! Measuring on 10.5 inches by 7 inches, this scale takes up very little room. With its very low profile design, this scale is only a mere 0.75 inches tall. My scale is in the Teal Blue color and I think it is simply stunning!

I love that the entire surface of this scale is covered with tempered glass. The tempering of glass is a process which makes the glass much harder and stronger than it normally would be. This, in turn, makes the glass much more resistant to breakage and helps to protect the scale. The digital read out is larger and very easy to read. This scale utilized 4 AAA batteries, which are included! I am very happy with the look, quality and functionality of this digital kitchen scale!

This spin mop cleaning system is very nice! It does help make the chore of mopping the floor a little bit easier! In the box, you will find the specially designed spin mop bucket, the 2 part mop handle with mop head attachment, 2 mop heads, and the instruction booklet. Putting everything together and setting up is pretty straightforward and didn’t take much effort. The mop head is very easy to pop on and off of the attachment that connects to the handle.

All of the components of this system are sturdy and well made, yet not overly heavy. The buck holds a sufficient amount of water and is not flimsy at all when it has water in it. The bucket does have nice wheels and a built in handle which are very convenient for moving it around while mopping and from room to room. The bucket also has a very sturdy handle that runs across the top which helps when emptying and rinsing the bucket.

All of the spinning parts rotate very smoothly and easily yet does not cause the bucket to dip to one side or show any signs of stress. The wringer portion of the bucket is very well made with a stainless steel liner. The water that is removed from the mop via the spinning action is diverted back into the main bucket. I have used this system a couple of times now to clean my floors and the whole process has been pretty easy with no excess spillage of water.

I really like this spin mop system. Since I have arthritis in both of my hands and suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome in both of my wrists, it is definitely much easier for me to mop my floors using this system than it is trying to lug a heavy bucket around and wring out a mop by hand. This is definitely a 5-star product and I highly recommend it to everyone! I received this product at for a promotional discounted price in exchange for this review. All statements made in this review in regard to this product represent my own genuine and honest opinions.

This scale is very sleek and stylish. It is made from black tempered glass that blends well and complements and room décor. Its low, but wide profile design makes it very easy to step onto and stand while weighing yourself. The lighted LED digital read-out has a very nice bright blue backlight with large, easy-to-read black numbers.

This scale is powered by 2 AAA batteries, which are included. I love the smart step-on feature. The scale turns on and lights up when stepped on, then automatically shuts off about a minute after you step off.

Top 6 Essential Oils

PBN6OilSet

I used to be totally addicted to scented candles, but no more! I have found a new love – Essential Oils! Essential Oils diffuse much cleaner than burning candles and their scent is so much more pure and effective.

This set of Top 6 Essential Oils from Pure Body Naturals include a 10 ml bottle of each of the following oils: Eucalyptus, Lavender, Lemongrass, Peppermint, Sweet Orange, and Tea Tree.

PBN6OilSet1

I have included a few of my favorite diffuser blends and basic household uses utilizing these 6 different Essential Oils:

  • To make an effective all-purpose cleaner for any room in the house combine equal parts of Tea Tree Oil plus your choice of any one of the other oils along with 16 ounces (2 cups) of water. Put into a spray bottle. Shake well before each use.
  • Add several drops of Lavender Oil to a wool dryer ball or damp washcloth and toss into the dryer with your laundry instead of using a chemical-laden dryer sheet.
  • Make your own glass cleaner by combining 12 drops of Lemon Oil, 4 tablespoons of white vinegar and 20 ounces (2 ½ cups) of water. Put into a spray bottle. Shake well before each use.
  • Saturate any sticky surface with Orange Oil, let set for a minute or two, then wipe away.

Seasonal Allergy Relief Blend:
Combine Equal Parts of Lavender, Lemongrass, & Tea Tree Oil

Overnight Allergy & Sinus Relief Blend:
Combine Equal Parts of Eucalyptus, Lavender, Peppermint, & Tea Tree Oil

Energizing Blend:
Combine Equal Parts of Orange & Peppermint

16 Ounce Amber Spray Bottles

These amber spray bottles are so much nicer than I was expecting! I was pleasantly surprised when the box arrived and I opened it. These amber bottles are very well constructed. They are made with a medium thickness glass, not thin at all! These bottles hold a generous 16 ounces, so they are sure to fit the bill for any use you can possibly think of! Each bottle comes paired with its own screw-on, heavy duty spray top. These sprayers feel very well made and are easy to squeeze. The sprayer has two settings, “Stream” or “Spray”, as well as 2 “Off” settings. Being an amber color, they are perfect for using with essential or cooking oils!

AmberSprayBttls1

I already have a couple of bottles in use. One I filled with some extra virgin olive oil and use as my own version of non-stick cooking spray! Why should I spend money for a small aerosol can of non-stick cooking spray when I can put my own oil in a spray bottle for a fraction of the cost! The other bottle I have peppermint essential oil and water and have been using it to spray around my door and windows as an insect deterrent. Plus my house smells delicious!

These bottles also come with reusable chalk labels, but I currently don’t have any chalk or chalk pens in order to properly write on them. I will have to get some in the near future.

I am very much pleased with the quality of these bottles. I know that I will be able to use these spray bottles for all kinds of things! I actually had been looking for some spray bottles and good quality ones are actually very hard to find!

Convenient & Portable Fabric Storage Cubes

FabricStorageCubes2

These Aristocrat folding storage cubes are made very well. They are constructed with sturdy cardboard covered by a thick, durable, canvas-type fabric. Although these cubes are very sturdy, they are also very lightweight and easy to carry. The have handles on each side for easier carrying. Each cube measures 11.5 inches wide by 11.5 inches tall by 11.5 inches across – so they are a true cube! These cubes fold flat very quickly and easily for storage, when not in use.

FabricStorageCubes1

I am using these cubes in the truck of my car to hold groceries and other items that I pick up while out shopping. Not only can I keep my purchases organized and together so they do not slide and spill out in the trunk, the cubes also make it very easy for me to carry in a lot of things all at once, cutting down on the number of trips that I must make between the house & the car when taking everything in. I am VERY happy with these storage cubes!!

The Perfect Pillow for Those with Allergies or Asthma

I can not even begin to tell how comfortable my new Shredded Memory Foam pillow is! I knew that it was going to be comfortable because I have a memory foam bed that I absolutely love. This pillow supports my head & neck very well, whether I am lying on my back or on one of my sides. I suffer from asthma & allergies & I have not woke up being congested or stuffed up since switching to this pillow.

The pillow comes compressed and rolled up very tightly. When you first remove it from the box, it looks much more like a bolster than it does a standard bed pillow. After you un-wrap the pillow, it will take several hours for it to fluff up to its normal size. Once the memory foam has had time to fully relax, the pillow is about 7 inches thick.

The side-zip closure bamboo/polyester blend covering is very soft next to my skin. I was able to put a standard pillowcase on this pillow. However, due to the thickness, I did have a bit of a struggle to squeeze the pillow into the case!

I am very pleased with the quality and comfort of this Relax Home Life pillow! I highly recommend this pillow to anyone looking for a well-made, high quality pillow that will serve them well for years to come.
