Oh how I wish this would have been around when my kid’s were little.  Luckily they are available for them to now have and use on their own kids.  There is nothing worse than having a sick child and having to feel like you’re torturing them to get their temperature.  They feel bad enough and don’t want to have to hold the thermometer under their tongue while waiting for it to work.  Or worse….when you have to use a rectal thermometer on them because they are too sick to use the oral one.  Poor kid!  Not anymore!  Whoever thought of this was a genius.  Seriously one of the best things ever made as far as I’m concerned.  You can take a temperature with this in about 2 seconds and all you have to do is hold it an inch or two from the forehead and press a button.


It has 3 modes.  One for body temp, one for room temp and one for surface temp.  Just a click of the mode button and you can easily select which mode you’d like to use.  It also has a large, easy to read screen with a back light for use in dimmer rooms.  You can click the middle button to choose between Celsius or Farhenheit and it also has a memory button that you can use to keep track of a person’s temperature in case you need to reference it later.  This could even come in handy for women who are trying to conceive since one of the best ways to know you are “in cycle” is by your temperature.   It’s absolutely perfect for using on any one that is sick and I love that you don’t have to bother them to get a temp.  It works on 2 AAA batteries, which they included, and is so easy to use.  I think every household should have one.  You would never go back to using an oral thermometer again.


Product Description:
Experience quick and simple temperature taking with the Easy@Home NCT-301 non-contact, infrared thermometer. This easy to use thermometer has the latest infrared technology to display accurate readings within a second. There is no longer any physical contact necessary to get a simple temperature reading, it should always be this easy!
Instead of startling or irritating your children, this thermometer reads at a distance and notifies you silently. Eliminating physical contact decreases the chance of cross contamination between users while silent monitoring will not disturb them. The thermometer has a beeping sound to alert for high temperatures, however this feature can be disabled so that no sound emits while taking measurements.
Tri-Color Display:
The LCD display will show one of three colors based on the temperature. Not only does this display make reading temperatures easier in the dark, but the three colors indicate different ranges. A green display (<99.1°F (37.3°C)) indicates normal temperature, yellow display 99.3°F~100.2°F (37.4°C~37.9°C) indicates low-fever and red display >100.4°F (38°C) indicates high-fever.
Excellence Guarantee:
We offer a lifetime no hassle replacement guarantee for customers.
How to Take Temperature:

2.In ‘Body’ mode (default), aim to the center of the forehead from a distance of 1.2 – 2 inches.
3.Press the scan button and wait a second for the display to show the reading.




Getting older seems to mean that you need tests…..lots of tests!   I feel like I’m constantly being monitored.  Doctors advise you check your sugar levels, cholesterol, body fat and a myriad of other things…….most importantly your blood pressure.    I developed high blood pressure as a side effect of another medicine I am taking and my Doctor suggested checking it several times a week to make sure my blood pressure meds are working.  For me, that meant a trip to the local pharmacy where I could check it on their monitor.  Needless to say, I don’t always feel like going out just for that so I was looking for an easier way to keep tabs on mine.  I have found the perfect solution.   The Santa Medical blood pressure monitor is not only affordable (can you believe it’s only $19.95!) but it is also very accurate.


One of the first things I heard  was that these type of monitors were not as effective as the ones at the pharmacy or Doctor’s office so I decided to test out this theory.  As you can see that is not true.  I asked the pharmacist about the slight difference and he said that is perfectly normal and that even the same machine will show differences like that if you take your blood pressure more than once.  (I also had a Doctor’s appointment 2 days after this and my blood pressure results in office were the same as I got using the Santa Medical blood pressure monitor at home before I went.)

You do have to use the monitor correctly to get the most accurate reading.  The steps are super simple and the fact that the screen is so large makes for a very easy test.  The whole process takes less than a minute too.  If you, or someone you love, need a simple way to keep tabs of your blood pressure this is perfect for you.   It comes with a carrying case and is 100% satisfaction guaranteed.  It also stores up to 60 past readings so you can keep even better tabs on your blood pressure and how it fluctuates.


I do need to mention that mine may have been damaged in transit.  The battery cover kept falling off every time I tried to use it but a piece of tape took care of that.  Even if this wasn’t from damage and was a defect it wouldn’t keep me from purchasing another.  The cost and accuracy far outweigh having to use a piece of tape to keep the cover on.  I just wanted to mention this as I always try to show the good and the bad of every product I test.  Other than that, I am extremely happy with this monitor.




As some of you know, I suffer from Peripheal Neuropathy and one of the worst things about it is it makes it VERY hard to sleep.   My legs tingle so bad at night that falling asleep is not easy.  I can’t remember the last time I was asleep before 5 am.   I’m guessing it’s been over a year easily.  Even when I did manage to fall asleep  I would wake up numerous times throughout the night from being so uncomfortable.  I’d end up sleeping until Noon and still only getting maybe an hour or 2 of real restful sleep.

My Doctor prescribed a sleep aid for me but it was way too strong.  I took one and ended up sleeping for 18 hours straight!  When I finally did wake up my body was sore,  my brain felt foggy and I had zero energy.  The next night I tried only taking half of one but I still ended up with the same results so I started looking for a more natural way to get some shuteye.   Luckily I was offered a bottle of these to review because these have been life saving for me!

I take one about an hour before I’d like to fall asleep and within 45 minutes I cannot keep my eyes open any longer!   Better than that,  I am sleeping through the whole night and not waking up at all.  The first few days I took them I still ended up sleeping in pretty late but I think that’s only because my body had been so sleep deprived for so long.   Within a week that had adjusted itself and I am now able to fall asleep at a decent hour and wake up early (for me) with no ill effects.  I cannot stress how good it feels to sleep this well after having issues for so long!  I am literally sleeping like a baby now!


If you are having sleep issues I highly recommend that you try this ALL NATURAL sleep aid.   I love that it’s non habit forming and only made with natural ingredients because I sure don’t want to become reliant on yet another med on top of all I already have to take.  I personally hate pharmaceuticals and would do just about anything to never have to take one again.  I feel good about taking these and can’t see how I could go wrong with them.  sleep6

During my last yearly physical my Doctor found that I had slightly elevated cholesterol levels.   Not enough to need prescription medicines but I still wanted to bring it down and prevent it from getting more elevated so she suggested Fish Oil tablets.  UGH!  I don’t know if you’ve ever taken them before but they cause LOTS of stomach issues.   From the first tablet I was already feeling bloated and gassy.   Combine that with the horrible fishy taste in my mouth that never went away  (and caused fishy burps constantly I might add) and I was ready to stop taking them.   I knew I needed to do something though so I went online and looked for fish oil alternatives.

I started seeing that lots of people were recommending Krill Oil tablets instead so I decided to try them.   I am SO glad I did!   I have been taking these for about 3 weeks now and I have zero bloating or gassiness,  and most importantly, no fishy aftertaste or  constant belching!  I haven’t been back for a cholesterol test yet but since that is one of the main benefits of Krill Oil I am feeling confident that they will show improvement. ( I will update my review after my follow up which should be in a couple of months.)


I am so happy to be able to treat my cholesterol without having to suffer through all of the side effects that fish oil caused and I highly recommend these Krill Oil tablets!  I wouldn’t have been able to continue with the fish oil.  I couldn’t even enjoy my meals because everything just upset my stomach while taking them.   I take a Krill Oil tablet each day now and then forget all about it!  These will even help people who don’t have high cholesterol since they promote  cardiovascular health in general and could keep you from ever having issues to begin with.  If I would have known about them sooner I would have taken them daily and may not have ever had elevated cholesterol level at all.  I am definitely taking them from here on out to prevent future problems.

I have always had digestive issues.  Loud tummy rumblings (and always at the worst possible time of course),  gurgling,  bloating,  gas …well …you name it…that’s my tummy!  I’ve been dealing with it my entire life actually.  I have never been officially diagnosed but I would guess I probably suffer from irritable bowel syndrome.  I have been wondering if probiotics would help me so I was super excited to get an offer to review these.

I’ve been taking them now for about 2 weeks.  When I first started taking them I took the recommended dose of 2 tablets and I seemed to be suffering even more with gas issues.  (Yea I know…Too much information lol…but this one kind of requires it).  I cut the dose down to one tablet a day and after 3 days I started noticing some improvements….and very little gas.   At first it was just a little less rumbling and gurgling…not a huge difference but noticeable.  After about a week I noticed that I wasn’t having diarrhea as often.  (After suffering for about 6 months straight due to my meds I am very happy)  This alone makes it worth taking to me!  I’m still not 100% right in that area but at least I am not running to the bathroom as soon as I finish eating anymore!


I definitely plan to keep taking them and am crossing my fingers that my digestive issues will improve even more over time.   It seems to me that the longer I take them, the better my stomach feels.  Although I am not completely over the issues the improvement I am seeing makes me think that these are definitely helping and I am excited to finally have something that helps at all.  And since they also boost your immune system you really can’t lose!

What are probiotics?

Probiotics are good bacteria who perform a very important role in our digestive, methabolic and immune systems. They produce enzymes that break down the food we eat, regulate vitamins intake and convert sugars to the essential nutrients our bodies need.

Our GI is home to 80% of our immune system!
That´s why it is so important to take a good Probiotic Supplement

This is how the Number One Probiotic may help you:

– Drastically improve your digestive health.
– Balance your intestinal flora.
– Improve your mood.
– Break down allergy causing proteins.
– Accelerate your fat loss.

I received a 3 pack of these  Buster Brown Diabetic Socks for Women from  WEAREVER  and although I am not diabetic these have helped me immensely. I suffer from a neurological condition that causes my legs and especially my feet to tingle and feel numb constantly which leads to lots of painful days. My condition is very similar to Diabetic nerve pain so I wanted to try these socks to see if they would help me too.

3 I love the weight of these socks since thicker socks tend to feel very heavy on my feet sometimes. (Sometimes even having a sheet over my feet will make them “go to sleep” from the weight) These are very lightweight and feel great. I also love that they are seamless AND elastic free as this really helps my feet from becoming more tingly and/or numb which has caused me to avoid shoes and socks in general. I love Summer when I can get away with sandals but I think these socks will help a lot. I’ve only been wearing them for a couple of days but I will say that I haven’t once wanted to take them off….and trust me! That in itself is miraculous to me! When you suffer from a chronic condition such as mine anything that helps is a blessing and these are a blessing! I highly recommend them to anyone that has circulation and/0r neurological issues or anybody that would simply appreciate a wonderfully comfortable pair of socks.
