Gripsafe Silicon Gloves

heat resistant gloves

  These gripsafe silicon gloves are made to replace a pot holder.  With the raised parts, you will be able to hold things better than a pot holder.  They are heat resistant up to 450 degrees.  They state that you can hold hot pans, etc. with them but we removed a cookie sheet from the oven and attempted to carry the pan into the other room and it started to burn through before we got there.  Just removing something from the oven is good but don't attempt to hold anything more than a few seconds.

Speedmintion

Speedminton

   Speedminton is not just a badminton set...it's better.   Our whole family took turns playing and we had a blast.  No complicated set up, just grab the rackets and play.  And the birdie can even light up so you can play at night with ease.

LensCircle Circle Contacts

   I have very small, squinty eyes.  All my life, I have wanted bigger eyes.  Finally, I can have them.  I recently tried out Circle Lens by LensCircle and have the eyes I have always wanted.   I chose the blue ones in the Angel series.  I could not have been more pleased.

   As you can see, they look great.  I have NEVER before wore contacts and had no problem putting these in or anything.  They felt fine and I put them in on my first try.  It was amazing.

     I loved that I did not have to have a prescription to get these.  You can get them with no prescription or have your own prescription put in these.  There are a variety of colors and styles to choose from so I know you'll find one that you will love.

Aquastorm Luxury Shower

    The Aquastorm Luxury Shower system is amazing.  I love that it has two shower heads.  The one that is affixed to the wall is tall enough for my 6'2" hubby.  Most shower heads are too short but not this one.  He likes not having to bend over and not hitting his head constantly.  And since I am disabled, I like having the shower head on the hose to maneuver wherever I need it with ease.   You can also use both parts at the same time if you want. 

Aquastorm Luxury Shower



    This isn't just a normal shower...it truly is a luxury hotel quality shower.  It has 30 different water flow pattens with a high-power precision spiralflo dial design.   Some of the water flow settings you can choose from include:  power rain, hydrating mist, rain/massage, pulsating massage and rain/mist. 
    The shower heads install easily too without the use of any tools.  The brass hose nuts can be tightened by hand which is convenient and if something happens to it, no worries, it comes with a lifetime warranty.   And finally, the best reason to buy one, you'll love it I'm sure.  :-)

Lightheaded Bed Review & A GIVEAWAY

     I have not been this excited over a product in a LONG time but Lightheaded Beds is a product and company one can easily get excited about.  I recently had the opportunity to review one of these wonderful beds and the company was generous enough to offer one to be given away to one of my wonderful followers.  How amazing is that?




     We ordered the Lightheaded Bed through Walmart.com which is one of the company's third party retailers.  It was easy to maneuver around the sight and they had a nice selection of the Lightheaded Beds to choose from.  We finally decided on the "Shaker" model with the "Frozen" Headlightz image.  We placed our order online and received the bed via Fed-ex exactly one week later.  The bed arrived in 2 boxes.  You will need help maneuvering the boxes (one weighed over 80 pounds and the other was almost 40 pounds).




     Once we got the boxes inside, it was time for my hubby to put it all together.   The box that was the heaviest had the headboard, foot board and other components. 



   The other box was lighter but very long and held the rails and slats.






    The parts were packaged well to insure nothing moved around and got scratched up.






    They even had the paper work tied together in the box to be sure they would not get lost and to be sure the hardware did not come loose and scratch anything up.  We thought that was a nice touch.






    My hubby carefully removed the headboard and I really loved the deep rich color of the wood.  It was quite heavy and beautiful.  The dolphin headlight image came with the kit and the "Frozen" image was sent in a separate delivery that we got just a few days before.



   Every tool required to assemble the bed, was included in the box.  The first thing my husband did was attached the legs to the headboard with an Allen wrench (that was included). 





  





    The bed is so easy to put together that my husband was able to do it by himself; even putting the railing into the slots he could alone.





    Once he had the headboard attached to the foot board with the rails, it was time to lay down the slats.  He removed the slats from the box and the slats were all attached together.  Click on the video to see how easily he laid them out.

   As you can see, there are plenty of slats so a box springs really isn't needed with the bed.  We plan on using just a mattress instead.    My husband said it was one of the easiest beds to put together.  I did not tell him I was going to time him but I did.  From start-to-finish, it took him exactly 30 minutes to put the bed together.  Pretty quick!

     We couldn't wait for the mattress to be put on before trying out the lighted headboard.  The bed comes with a remote to access the lighting and it has several different features.




      With the remote, you can turn the light panel off or on; adjust the brightness and set the timer on the light.  If your child likes to read before bed, put it on the bright setting and set the timer for an hour (for example), after that time, the light will turn itself off or have it dim to a nightlight setting or fade off.  

      The video below shows you how it looks going from one setting to another.  Isn't it great?

    The images in the light panel are interchangeable.  As mentioned before, the bed came with the "dolphin" image and the "Frozen" image but you can also go to the Lightheaded Beds webpage and order from their huge selection any number of Headlightz Images.  My son is a huge fan of Marvel's Avengers so we ordered an extra image for his bed.   The extra Headlightz images can be stored in the built in compartment of the foot board for easy storage.






     Store them in the foot board and when your child wants to change images, just remove one and replace it into the headboard.  Just raise the lid; slide out the old image and remove; slide in the new image and close the lid.  It really is that simple.

video


   I have two sons (10 & 17) and both like the bed.  In fact, they are taking turns sleeping in it.  Ronny got it the first night and then Bub got to sleep in it the next night.  We got the bed for Ronny so I'm sure that will be the one and only time he lets big brother sleep in it.  I snuck in and took some pictures of both of them enjoying the bed.













    As  you can see, we are really pleased with the Lightheaded Bed but don't take my word for it, hear it for yourself from Ronny.

    If you can't wait to see if you won, just go ahead and purchase one today.  Use the code (LHBLCH)in the picture but hurry, this special offer ends on June 6, 2015.

First Campout of the Year

    This past Saturday, we did an overnight camp out.  We didn't travel, we just went to our camping spot on the property.  It's far enough from the house to feel legit and close enough to get anything I should forget.  My husband's best friend and his young son came and camped out with us.  We had a good time with lots of laughs and good conversations.

McCormick Consumer Testing

   I have been a member of the McCormick Consumer Testing program for several years.  The company sends you a survey occasionally to fill out, generally over their spices and you just give them your opinion.  They often send out samples of new spices they want you to try out also.  I enjoy it because I love trying out new products and they don't overwhelm you with a ton of emails or surveys.  You may get one a month at the most.  Often, they have mini contests and you can win Amazon gift cards and nice prizes.  Last year I won an Apple Ipad Air 2 from them.  I was ecstatic!

McCormick Consumer Testing, samples program,

    If you would like to join, they currently are accepting new members.  Just click on the link McCormick Consumer Testing and please enter my name (Melody Gravitt) where they ask you "How did you hear about us?".

Thanks and I hope you enjoy the program as much as I do.  :-)
