Help Support Toby's fight!

Hey everyone, I know that I have asked, begged, and pleaded, but I really need your help and support. Late last week, my sweet Yorkie was hit by a car. By the grace of God, he is still alive. He will require extensive medical bills at his veterinarian's office, will have to face surgery once he is strong enough to reset his bones, and more then likely lose his right leg, and will have to have a dogie wheel chair. Please if you can help me, help my baby not only by prayers, but financially. Even if it is a dollar, please help us. I will be holding up a fundraiser to help raise funds for my sweet baby, and will be posting pic's of him at the doggie hospital that he is in later today. I have never liked seeing him or any animal in a cage, but at this time, this is where he is and it breaks my heart.

If you can help us, our go-fund-me account is gofund.me/sqy2jm4.

God Bless,

Easy@Home Areta Fingertip Pulse Oximeter

As a nurse, I can tell you how important it is that when a patient has a lung disorder or in fact a lung disease the important of this little handheld device is. The Easy@Home Areta Fingertip Pulse Oximeter is FDA approved. It quickly and accurately measures your pulse rate as well as your blood oxygen levels (SPO2). When I worked, I would use a device like this daily when it came it measuring how well my patients were oxygenating. It has a bright LED display and shows your real time pulse rate, the SpO2 level and the battery level. I like that this device can read over a thousand readings, and can be used continuously as long as it is reading. It is light and compact, as well as can accommodate several different finger sizes. It as well comes with its own 2 AAA batteries, lanyard, and a case. I would highly recommend this product to anyone as it is so user friendly!

Individually Wrapped Hand Sanitizing Wipes

 The Individually Wrapped Hand Sanitizing Wipes are pretty cool. I love that they are individually wrapped, so I don't have to take my bulky wipe bucket with me, as I am notorious for cleaning and wiping down my nephews hands (mind you they are 4 & 2). They are great for all sorts of things, camping, traveling, after using a public bathroom facilities and so forth. They as well have some awesome features and come in a box of 100 wipes. The features are as such:

  • They have an alcohol free antimicrobial solution that kills 99.9% of germs within 5 seconds. 
  • Unlike most of the gels that I have used, their wipes help not only to sanitize but remove dirt as well. 
  • Cleaning is made super easy when soap and water is not available. 
  • It has Aloe and Vitamin E that is infused to keep your hands moisturized, not sticky or soapy. 
  • I personally think that they are one of the largest, thickest, and softest premium sanitizing wipe out there.
  • You can not only use these on your hands, but you can use them on your body, or even any surface to clean and disinfect.
  • And something that I absolutely love is they are made in the USA and at an FDA approved facility.

Arts and Crafts Organizing Box

The Arts and Crafts Organizing Box is perfect for my home because my house these days, seems pretty cluttered and in definite need of some organization. So I was super excited when I was asked to review and give my honest opinion when it came to this craft box. I do find that this box is nice and in a sturdy plastic. The handle and clasp are able to be secured, however, I noticed that mine likes to stick a bit, but it's no biggie. I am sure after use several times, it will sort it self out. It is not that big, smaller then a toolbox per say, but it is of a good size for all of my tiny hair pieces and the bottom is large enough for my hair brush and hair surplices to keep all things together and so forth. I like that the tray lifts off and that the entire bottom of the box is exposed and I love that now everything is in place.Plus I feel that since it is clear, it is wonderful in being able to find things weekly.

Super Weight Loss Supplement by Petite Plus!

OMG, so let me tell you! I found a company that totally rocks when it comes to all of my favorite weight loss supplements. Petite Plus is wonderful when it comes to their version of the Super Weight Loss formula. It include not only the Garcinia Cambogia Extract, but it as well includes the Raspberry Ketones, Green Coffee Bean  Extract, Forskolin Extract as well as Rhodiola Rosea. This formula offers people who want to lose weight a wonderful option without having to take several pills all at once. Being overweight and having Lower Back Problems, among my other health problems that I face, I always like to find  things to help promote weight loss. Petite Plus has done that. They have 5 of the hottest and top leading weight loss over-the counter weight loss formula packed into just one pill on the market today.

There have been studies completed that have shown that the Garcinia Cambogia helps inhibit glucose absorption, and it helps promote a better mood level by boosting Serotonin levels. The Raspberry Ketones is said to increase lean body mass, and some people have even said that it helps their scalp as it improves hair growth. The Green Coffee Bean Extract is said to have one natural substance called chlorogenic acid in it which is thought to block fat accumulation, boost weight loss, curb carb absorption, and help regulate post-meal blood sugar levels. The Forskolin Extract is said to help change your body composition, by significantly decreasing body fat percentage and fat mass and lastly I will discuss what the Rhodiola Rosea is also called Arctic or Golden Root. It is said that it helps regulate our immune, physiological and neurological responses to stress. We all know that stress is one thing that triggers our Cortisol hormone. Researchers have also discovered that chronic stress can cause the body to release excess cortisol, which is a hormone critical in managing fat storage and energy use in the human body. Cortisol is known to increase appetite and may encourage cravings for sugary or fatty foods.

So let me tell you. I have taken the Petite Plus for 3 weeks now. I have noticed that when I started taking this over the counter weight loss product that I wasn't hungry at all, and I love to snack, so it definitely has helped curb my appetite. I as well have noticed that it has increased my mood levels, and I don't see the everyday mood crashes that I normally experienced before. The suggested serving size is 2 capsules once a days a day 30 min prior to eating that's it! I am down 9 pounds in 3 weeks without changing my appetite or increasing my exercises. I have not noticed any side effects by using this formula. I did notice that I had increased energy to do stuff. I can tell you that you must drink water to help flush out your system or you will get a headache by taking this over-the counter weight loss supplement, but that comes from using any Garcinia Cambogia product. The capsules are 750mg each with a serving size of 1500mg.

Now here is my disclosure, what may have worked for me, may not work for everyone. Please see your doctor, to make sure that you do not have any drug to drug interactions with any medication that you are taking. I have confirmed this over the counter weight loss supplement with my doctor for myself to be safe for me, but not every doctor is this way. We had to rule out the pro's and the con's due to all of my health issues. I will be ordering another bottle of this incredible product. Because 9 pounds to me is the size of a newborn baby that is no-longer on my body. Overall I am very satisfied with this product and would highly recommend it.

15 EZ-RJ45 Cat 5 5e 6 High Quality Connectors

I ordered these connectors from an advice of a friend as well as the EZ Crimp Tool. I love that these connectors are wonderful, as they are good at allowing me to slide the individual wires thru so that it can be confirmed that they are in the right order. When I crimp the jack with the EZ Crimp Tool, I love that it gets close enough to the jack, and I don't have to mess with the wires much more. This I believe has made my life much easier since I did spend an extra $35.00 or so for the EZ Crimp Tool, but if I am going to be working on these types of jacks, then I might as well make my life easy!

Glow Stick Bracelets with Awesome discount

This Glow Stick Bracelet pack comes with 100 of the brightest and awesome glow-sticks. I remember one of my favorite things were glow sticks as a child. I would love to activate the ones on the strings, swing them around and watch them glow for hours. Secondly, most of my childhood friends and I would go deep sea fishing, and we would use them at night! I love things that bring back awesome memories! These glow sticks are not that different, except these are more for jewelry then swinging them around and using them for fishing to catch the biggest fish. My daughter and son received these the first day, and went through half of them. cracking them, creating weird designs, I mean honestly, where do they come up with some of their stuff these days? Plus they are super bright, these lasted anywhere from 6-8 hours. Sure they faded around the 6th hour, but did not completely die out till around the 9th hour, they were however very dim at that time. I heard freezing them helps keep them last longer, I think this may hold true if it was a couple of hours into it, but since we let them go for 6-9 hours later, we threw them out after.

Organic Seaweed Powder by Azara Organics Review + Contest

The Organic Seaweed Powder by Azara Organics is a certified USDA pure organic kelp powder which is harvested from the coldest parts of the Northern Atlantic Ocean and then Micronized into a fine powder. When I first opened up the jar, you could definitely smell the seaweed. I happen to like the fragrant since I grew up on the East Coast. For me, it reminded me of home, the smell of the ocean and the seaweed that had been washed up against the shore line.

What I like most about this product, is not only is it completely all natural, but there are so many beneficial things that when you use it, you can get. for example, did you know that this product is great for sensitive skin, rashes, dry skin, and even acne? I love going to get facials and honestly, I do not love paying the price for one, because they are super expensive. So why spend the money when I can order the same stuff off of Amazon. This seaweed powder is packed with lots of Vitamins, Minerals, Trace Elements, and Amino Acids that help with maintaining a healthy and youthful glow.

So how do you use it? I combined 1 teaspoon of seaweed powder and 2 teaspoons of warm water. I actually added 3 teaspoons of water, because it was too thick and with 3 teaspoons, it was easier to apply to my face, but directions call for 2 teaspoons. What’s great about this product is that you only need one teaspoon of the powder to make the paste for your entire face, so it will definitely last a long time, although I am not sure about the longevity of the product should you use it on your body.

Once applied it felt pretty good on my face. The paste itself is pretty thick but it’s very easy to apply. After about 7 minutes it started to harden. I left it on for abut 15 minutes and then washed it off. My face felt awesome after that. It was super soft and had that fresh clean feeling to it as if I went to the spa.

My next venture is to apply if to my body, but that will be another time.

Plus the makers of this awesome jar of Organic Seaweed Powder has offered my readers an opportunity to win one of their awesome jars though a giveaway. So good luck everyone, and remember one, winner will be randomly chosen through the RaffleCopter. Entries will be accepted from midnight to midnight 4/20/15 to 4/26/15. You MUST be a Facebook friend of mine so that I may notify the winner once they win. Winner will have 24 hours to contact me with their mailing information once they have been notified. Please remember, Heather's Blog Opinions & Ideas is not responsible for shipping items to winner, as the company is responsible for this. Open to US only -- sorry. So good luck!

SizErect Ultra

Okay, let me tell you....I purchased this for my fiance at a discounted rate in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion. However since I am the female in the relationship, I gave it to my fiance to see how it compared to some of the other one's he has taken in the past. First off, in the beginning, it did not seem to do much for him, but since he has been taking these now for three weeks, both he and I can tell a difference. After the first week, he was going to give up on them, but didn't, and I was glad, for two different reasons. 1) Not being out of money, and 2) for the pleasure and satisfaction I got! Not only did it add inches as in size and girth to him, but his stamina was incredible. He wore me out, where as before I was always left hanging sorta-speak. As a blogger, both my fiance and I will be ordering more of the SizErect Ultra, as it does what it says it does. I don't now about most, but as a women looking at a men's perspective, I was impressed!

This is definitly an awesome solution to my problem!

The Pembrook Wheelchair Backpack Bag is the ideal organization accessory for nearly any mobility device. The bag attaches to the handles, seatback or headrest of most manual wheelchairs, electric wheelchairs or scooters. I love that this bag is specifically designed for my and your unique needs.

18" BBQ Grill Brush with Scraper

One of the things that I hate to do the most is clean the grill. My fiance loves to cook out, and there is honestly nothing more fun than firing up the grill and cooking up our favorite meats, poultry, seafood and veggies over the flames. There is something that taste so awesome when you have that flame-broiled taste! But the thing that I truly hate is the clean-up.  Not only is it filthy, but removing all that grime make me hate the thought of barbecuing, till now.

I use to use this little brillo-pad once the grill cooled down and the hose to get my grill supper clean. Now, I no longer have to do that when it comes to barbecuing. Now I have this awesome 18" BBQ Grill brush with Scraper, this has taken the hassle of cleanup to a whole nether level. No longer will I have to remove the grates to clean them with my brillo-pad.

 The BBQ Heavy-Duty BBQ Grill Brush with Scraper features not just one, but two cleaning tools, a steel bristles and a steel scraper, which is totally awesome. The bristles lift away dirt more effectively than the other materials, and the scraper just lets you easily tackle that extra stubborn grime which I hate! The 18-inch handle lets you stand safely back from the grill while allowing you to get at all of those hard-to-reach spots with out getting burned. No longer will I have to wait for it to cool down!

Smart Weigh Bathroom Memory Scale

The Smart Weigh Bathroom Memory Scale is totally awesome. This is definitely a family bathroom scale as it has auto-recognition and can store up to 8 user profiles. First off it is wonderful as it has a large LCD Display with instant weight readings which is ideal for visually impaired users like myself who have trouble with the smaller things in life :). It as well, which I love has the smart step on technology which triggers the power when you step on it and have contact with it.

It is equipped with the four latest version of high precision sensors, and has a very consistent measurements. It has an extra thick and sturdy tempered top, plus as a plus size person, this scale goes up to 440 pounds, where normal scales go up to 300-350 pounds. It runs on 4 AAA batteries which are included. I love that it is very stylish and silver, which most bathroom scales are white and black, but it this scale as well comes in black. It would makes a great addition to any bathroom. One other thing that I really love about this scale is that it not only has a multi-color motivational back-light in red, blue and green, but it has a weight decrease and increase tracker. Plus it comes with a two year warranty should something go wrong. Most companies, only allow 6 months if that.

Tanbi Music guitar pick's

This is such an awesome product when it comes to people who are avid guitarists! In fact I play guitar myself, but I'm not very good. I enjoyed that there were several picks that I could choose from to set my style. I am always losing my picks or having to search for them. When it comes to this product, I feel that Tanbi Music had me in mind when they designed this product. I like that the colors are super bright, and that they are different sizes to pick from. They are even color coded according to there size so that they play differently as well as I like that they come together in one case, I can find them very easy. They as well are slightly on the larger/thicker side. Overall this company does get 5 stars in my book, and I will definitely be purchasing another set.
