ENTER TO WIN A MOUNTAIN CREST DIGITAL TIRE GAUGE FROM BELLA’S BLOG

TIRE

This is one handy tool!  In my opinion, this company thought of everything! Not only can you check your tire pressure, you can also cut through a seat belt in an emergency (thankfully I haven’t needed to try that tool but the blade seems sharp so …), break a window if needed and there are multiple tools that could also come in handy if needed such as a screwdriver, pliers and scissors.

I like that the LED screen is large, and lit up, so its very easy to read and that even the valve is lit up so that if you need to air a tire at night you can still see the valve stem easily. It also has a flashlight on the end which is always handy since flat tires tend to happen at the worst possible time and usually after dark in my case.  I also love that there is a gadget on the end to break a window if you happen to see a baby or a pet suffering because they were left in a locked up, hot car.  I will break a window to rescue either in a heartbeat so this is a great addition to an already awesome tool. I really can’t think of anything else they could have added to this to make it better. It’s well made and looks nice and I like having the emergency tools available if I do need them.

COST BROTHER’S BEST RUNNING ARMBAND FOR SAMSUNG, iPHONE & HTC REVIEW

ARMBAND2

I wanted this for my stepson when I first saw it.  He runs to stay in shape for the various sports he plays and I thought he would like to be able to listen to his music while he ran.  Since we got it for him he has enjoyed running much more.   I think the music helps keep his mind of of the “chore” of it and just makes it more pleasant for him.  He just straps it to his arm, runs the earbud wires up the back of his shirt, places them in his ears and off he goes.  The armband itself is comfortable to wear and adjusts to just about any arm width from a preteen to a pretty large man.  (works for up to 14 1/2 inch biceps)  I was a little worried that it would cause his arm to sweat more, which would make it sort of uncomfortable to wear,  but that didn’t seem to be an issue at all.  He really seems to enjoy it and hasn’t mentioned anything he dislikes about it.

I was sort of surprised when my husband said he wanted to use if while doing his lawn work.  I figured the lawn mower, weed eater, etc., would be too loud for him to hear it over but I was wrong.  He said that he can hear perfectly fine and again, this makes his chores seem much less like work and more like fun.  I am all for anything that turns chores into fun myself!  Now he rides his lawn mower around the yard while rocking out to his favorite band and he really doesn’t seem to mind doing it as much at all.

He has used it while pulling weeds, trimming bushes, weed eating and just about every other lawn related maintenance you can think of.  I would have never even thought to use it that way but I’m really happy that he is able to and that it works so well.  It’s also pretty awesome that although all of us have different smart phones, they all fit into this armband.   It’s pretty easy to use the touch screen with it on too.  The only thing that we had any trouble with is the buttons on the side,  like the volume button.  You do have to take it out of the sleeve to work the side buttons so you have to make sure the volume is set before you strap it on.  Other than that, it works wonderfully and I’m sure we will find many more ways to use it.  If my husband will share that is…..he has sort of claimed it for his own.  He does that with quite a few of the tech gadgets I get to review…..

armband10

For such a simple idea it is really nice to have.  One of those things that you didn’t know you needed until you got it.

“CELFIE STICK” WITH BLUETOOTH REVIEW


1
I think I surprised a few people when I told them I was reviewing a selfie stick.  Anybody that knows me, knows that I hate having my picture taken and rarely take a selfie.  (Unless it’s for a sweepstakes entry anyway)  However,  when I started thinking of all of the ways this could come in handy for my reviews I had to apply.  I am so glad I did.  This has already come in handy for me several times.  You can use it to take all kinds of different types of pics from a large group photo to the pile of goodies the mailman brought you.

1

I review a lot of  different types of things and I’m always taking pictures.   I usually have to bug my husband if I need a pic that I can’t take by myself.   I may need a pic of the back of my head for a hair styling tool I’m reviewing or maybe a full body shot for an article of clothing.   If my husband isn’t home I have to wait or else try to go into the bathroom  to use the mirrors to get the shot I need.  But then, it’s in the bathroom…..I don’t know about you but I get kind of tired of seeing posts from  people’s bathrooms.  I also like to take pictures of the mail I get everyday.  It’s a fun way to start off each day because my readers also post in the comments what they get and it’s just fun to see what everybody got.   Sometimes I get lucky and get so many things that I can’t get it all in the picture so this selfie stick is a perfect solution.

selfiestick8

It would also be great while traveling.   How many times have you been in a beautiful spot on vacation and had to ask a stranger to take your picture?   And probably worrying all the time that they may run off with your camera or your smart phone.   With the selfie stick you can get a picture of the whole group without bothering anyone or leaving someone out of the pic because they are taking the picture.   It’s also much better than using a timer and then the person that’s setting it has to try to get into the picture before the camera goes off.   We all know that doesn’t always work out so great.  Again…..selfie stick to the rescue!

I recommend this for everybody.  It is definitely not just for selfies although it is also great for them too.  I’m sure I will be using this several times a week and I definitely think every blogger should have one.

INTELLIGLASS SCREEN PROTECTOR REVIEW & GIVEAWAY *ENDED*

screenprotector8

I have to admit when I first accepted this review I was wondering how in the world I could write a review about a screen protector.  Turns out, it really isn’t that hard when it’s a nice one.    My favorite thing about this screen saver is how easy it is to apply.  I have neurological issues and my hands tend to shake when I try to do most things, so I asked my husband to apply it while I took pictures.  After watching how easily he got it on I now think that I could have done it myself even with shaky hands.  This screen saver is made from glass so it isn’t flimsy at all and that really made the application process a breeze.  He simply peeled the backing off and stuck it right onto the phone. There ended up being one small bubble where I didn’t get the dust completely off of the phone before applying so you do want to make sure it is super clean before you start.  Other than that tiny speck I missed you cannot even tell there is a cover on the phone, it looks so smooth and fits so well that it’s basically invisible.

screenprotector13

This screen protector will prevent your phone from scratches and could even help prevent breaks if you drop it.   While reading the product description I noticed that it said to try scratching it with a set of car keys to test the scratch resistance so of course I had to….I am amazed that it left no visible marks at all so it will be much safer in your purse or pocket.  It also seems to show less fingerprints and it cleans easily with the cloth that comes with it.   They offer different sizes for different phones so you can easily find the one that’s right for yours.

Product Description

intelliGLASS is our new line of screen protectors here at intelliARMOR that are crafted with a unique layering process that combines the following;

An advanced silicone base layer that adheres to your phone or tablet’s screen easily and without bubbles  – all while leaving no residue.

An ultra-hardened REAL glass layer that has been specially treated to have greater scratch resistance than steel.  (try to scratch it with a set of car keys and you’ll see what we mean).

An oil and smudge resistant outer layer that repels fingerprints and makes cleaning your phone’s surface a snap.

LIZTEK PSS-60 WIRELESS BLUETOOTH SPEAKER REVIEW & GIVEAWAY


2s

This Bluetooth speaker from Liztek is a great size.  It’s only about 5 or 6 inches long and weighs just a little over 8 oz so it’s very portable and can fit in most any purse or jacket pocket.  Don’t let the small size fool you though! The sound quality is absolutely amazing!  Even turned up to almost full volume there is no distortion and the music still sounds very crisp & clear.   You can also use it as a speakerphone if a call comes in while you’re enjoying your music.  Simply press the Talk button to start the call and again when you are ready to end it.  It’s a little loud if you have your music turned up so the first thing I suggest is turning down the volume before you answer your call, but other than that it’s an easy to use feature.

This is a stylish looking speaker too. It’s made from sturdy materials and comes in 3 colors, red, black or blue.   Battery life is great too.  It only takes about 2 hours to fully charge and the charge will last up to 9 hours!  You can’t beat that.  Most of my other gadgets run out of power in about 3 hours so I’m super impressed with this.  I also like that it has the option to listen to FM radio.  I can’t say I’ve ever seen that option on a Bluetooth speaker before and I think it’s a great addition.  By pressing the Mode button you can easily switch from MP3 to FM radio and back again.

 

Product Features:

 

  • Supports Wireless Music Streaming via New Bluetooth v3.0 Technology.
  • Two highly powerful 40mml total 3W acoustic drivers and ultra-small size produce a wide audio spectrum
  • Built-in Li-Ion Rechargeable Battery for up to 6 hours of playtime. Built-in microphone for hands-free speaker phone calling Easy to pair – No code/pin needed
  • Easily to carry with, only 8.3 ounces.Plays all Audio devices through 3.5mm Aux in Jack.
  • 3.5mm Audio Line In – Don’t have Bluetooth? The PSS-60 allows you to connect the speaker directly to a standard headphone jack

LIZTEK PSS-100 PORTABLE BLUETOOTH SPEAKER REVIEW


1

I had never heard of the Liztek brand before I received this Bluetooth speaker to review and I have to say that I’m impressed!  I am usually a brand snob and I’m cautious buying brands that I haven’t heard of before and usually just stick with ones I’ve had experience with and that I know will deliver what they promise.  I have a feeling that the Liztek brand is going to become very popular!   Besides being very reasonably priced this little speaker has amazing sound quality!  Very crisp & clear sound and no distortion whatsoever.   It honestly has the best sound of any Bluetooth speaker I’ve heard.  (It also has SIRI connection available but unfortunately that only works if you have an iphone or ipad.  I am a Samsung snob so I wasn’t able to test that feature.)

Battery life is great too.  It only takes about 2 or 3 hours to charge and we kept this one on constantly for 9 hours straight and it was still going.   I’m not sure how much longer it would have lasted but I’m impressed with 9 hours.  Most of the gadgets I have run out of power in just a few hours so this was a nice change.   I seriously don’t think you could find a better speaker for this price, or even for a higher price really.   With the excellent sound quality it delivers and the long lasting battery charge you really can’t beat it.

Product Features: ~New Bluetooth v3.0 Technology allows you to Connect wirelessly up to 33 feet away.

~Seamlessly stream and share music, movies, games, phone and conference calls anywhere

~Premium Sound with Bass Enhance Technology. Two powerful 40mm Drivers deliver crisp clean sound with deep bass

~ Built-in Li-Ion Rechargeable Battery for up to 10 hours of playtime. ~Built-in microphone for hands-free speaker phone calling Easy to pair – No code/pin needed

~3.5mm Audio Line In – Don’t have Bluetooth? The PSS-100 allows you to connect the speaker directly to a standard headphone jack.
