Happy Panda Time!

As a kid, I remember wanting things sooo badly. I would beg and plead for the items. My parents always heard me say that I would play with the item forever and it was a good investment.

At the time, I didn't realize, my parents already knew what was going to happen. The toy would come, get played with for a little while and then sit and collect dust. It's just something that happens. We believe we want something, get it, and then it didn't reach the level of hype, that you yourself gave it.


The Happy Panda is my adult let down. Don't get me wrong, this little guy is adorable and the kids seem to love it. Me? I was happy with it for a few minutes before I put it back away.


This little guy is black and white, but you can find other colors on their Amazon listing as well. All you do is take him out, fix the batteries, and turn him on. He does a few things, when you hold him upside down, rub, his head, or when you blow in his face.


Now don't get me wrong, I'm trying not to be a scrooge, but I feel like this is just an over grown McDonald's toy. My kids can't seem to get enough of it though and have been constantly playing with it.


You can check it out on Amazon here:

I'm looking for something like a Furby. Something that can interact and talk without being talked to, you know, something creepy. If you have any ideas, please let me know in the comments below. Thank you so much for reading!

Unicorn Party Decor

When I was little, I don't remember any birthday parties. It was always just my sister's, brother, and my parents. We are a close family...just not that close. I prefer to do the same thing with my kids and they don't seem to mind.

Even though it is just us and a few close friends and family, decor is key. You have to have some sort of fun right? Fads come and go and unicorns are no different. They seem to fade away and then come back with a bang and my youngest has caught the unicorn bug.


Moon Boat has created a pretty cool Unicorn party backdrop. It includes wall stickers and tissue flowers. No real instructions though, so I had to go by Google and the amazon listing to figure it out.


Make sure you read how big it is. As you can see, one of the flowers is bigger than my hand and I have pretty big hands. If I had to guess I would say it is 3 feet by 2 feet.


Even though it is a party decoration, I thought my step daughter would really love it, so now it's a part of her room. The wall stickers can be moved of course, so if you want to move it around the room or for a party, it won't hurt your walls.


If you have a unicorn lover, this will be perfect for their party. We think it looks amazing! Thank you so much for reading, please go to Amazon and find out more about this party decor and please leave me a comment below and tell me what your favorite thing was as a child.

Go with the flow!

When we moved to our current home, we had been staying with a friend for a month and a motel before that. An eviction can bring anyone down and it gave me a greater respect for our homeless men and women. We totally understand how it can happen.

Anyway, when we moved in, we had no choice. The person with the money accepted for us. Now at first, the place was amazing. It wasn't long before we started realizing, it was actually a big pile of crap. Eventually we have to move, but for now, we improve this place, one day at a time.


My kitchen faucet has the worst water pressure, the sprayer is even worse. We needed something and then this baby showed up in my life. It is a faucet aerator, but I just call it a sprayer..boy does it spray!


Gatezone put together a nice quality product and honestly, I think I'm in love. They send attachments, but it fit perfectly onto our faucet without any of them. So far the seal is good, they do not send any thread tape. My husband used channel locks and the installation was done in a matter of minutes.

Once on, it does hang down pretty far in my sink, and looks a lot like an elephant's trunk. I'm not even bothered by how low it hangs. The only time it is a slight problem, is when I'm rinsing the dishes. It takes a bit to get use to holding the stuff down further and with only one hand. Haha.


To be honest, the flexible neck is probably the best feature. I can rinse either side of the sink, without moving the actual faucet. While using it, it seems like it will last for quite a few years, crossing my fingers anyway! Of course the coolest part, is the nozzle. It has a wider opening than my last one and a screen on the end.


Before this aerator, it took forever to fill the sink, now, it takes half the time and I feel like my dishes are getting rinsed a whole lot better now. I highly recommend and if you can't tell, I'm very happy with mine. Please go and check it out on Amazon.

Checking out the Mini-S1.

Over the years, I have gotten a lot of good products. Some of these products I am still using, six years later. These companies have become my "friends." Those that I have worked with multiple times, give me security in their products, but things do happen.


Let's start with the good on this review:

The earbud came in good condition. They keep them wrapped up well inside a protective case, which is inside a box. You of course, get the charging cord, but also another couple ear piece covers.


It worked right out of the box. The sound quality was good and you can hear it from a few feet away at max phone volume. One earbud frees you up to still be aware of your surroundings, but keeps the music coming.

Now the bad new.. This earbud never turned back on after it died with the original charge. We tried their cord, every cord we own, even friend's cords. It pops up red, it just never charges or turns on.


It is also a lot bigger than the earbuds I have reviewed from them in the past. You need a big ear to keep them in and mine just aren't that. It did however, stay in my husband's ear, even when he was on a bike ride.

Also, this is a strictly USb charged earbud. In the past, they included a USB "stick" that the bud just stuck to magnetically. That one charges every time, is much smaller and works just as well.


Now, the ugly truth.. this bud has tested well in the review comunity among my reviewer friends. The earbud I received may just be defective. Please check out this company on Amazon. Thank you for reading!

Rocking out with Ancordworks.

When I started this journey almost six years ago, I never realized the impact I could have on people. This blog is for you, always remember that everything I review is to help someone and it's the best job ever in my opinion.

We get to form pretty good bonds. This company is one that I praise a lot, but they really do deserve it. The quality of their products and their brand is very high and I'm in love with all of their speakers.


This little beauty, is a nice orange and green square, with an 8 watt speaker inside. You can use it with bluetooth and an auxillary cable. I have never had a problem with these speakers before, but I did this time.

First, the good news.. this speaker works perfectly with my husbands' phone. the bad? It will not work with either of my phones. It's the first time this issue has come around, it probably isn't a cause for concern, but just remember that.


In terms of sound, it wails pretty loudly. Probably one of their loudest speakers and it even includes a bit of bass which is always nice. If you keep the volume down and only listen for a few hours a day, this speaker should stay charged for a week or two.

My husband rides his bike all the time and always has to have music with him.  This speaker provides him with two different options. Looping the strap over one fo the handle bars and letting it hang, or mounting it to your bike. Remember the mount is not included, but a perfect way to keep your speaker safe.


We really enjoyed this speaker, the volume level is good, it has some bass, quick charging, and it stays charged for quite awhile. Please go and check this speaker out on Amazon, if you don't like this one, they have so many more. You're bound to find one you like!

Thank you so much for reading everyone. You are all appreciated, this wouldn't be without you. My question for the day: What was your favorite childhood song?

Give your fridge a splash of color with Idyewant.

Growing up, my mom never wanted stuff on the fridge. She always scolded us when we left something up for too long. I love you mom, but you are definitely a clean freak... and now I am.

I started out wanting to have everything on the fridge as a way to rebel. Slowly I started taking things down and throwing them away. My OCD was taking over. ow I keep pictures on the fridge and use a bunch of magnets. Those magnets get messy and get in the way on a daily basis.


You know you're a grown up, if you get excited about fridge magnets. Sigh..I was so excited, it's almost sad. hahaha Once they got here, I was even more excited. They came right out and I started organizing the pictures.


This set is essentially picture frames, that are magnetic instead of wooden or plastic. They fit 4 x6 and 5x7 sized pictures and lay flat on the fridge door.


You get a small blue, purple, red, and black, plus two big black frames. The colors really make my dull fridge pop and it helps a lot with my OCD as well.


I love the way they work with my fridge and pictures. You can frame other things as well, like the shopping list, love notes, art from the little ones, etc. It is such a cool idea. You need to check them out and pick up a set for yourself!

As always, I appreciate everyone for reading. Question of the day: What is the weirdest thing you have found on or inside a fridge? Please let me know below!
