Wooden-audio BS001 Wooden Bluetooth 4.0 Speaker

This review is for the Wooden-audio BS001 Wooden Bluetooth 4.0 Speaker Bubinga Wood Wireless Speakers with Built-in Mic Dual Drivers Portable Support SD Card and USB Connectivity for Cellphone Computer Tablet Laptop PC.  This wireless Bluetooth speaker is small but mighty.  Both my husband and I were surprised by how small this speaker is; it measures 6.8 x 3.2 x 2 inches.  However, the small size by no means accounts for the volume or quality of sound.

We put this speaker in our great room because of the wooden features on the speaker.  It complements our furniture and looks good in our space.  My husband was eager to test the speaker for pairing capability, sound and range.  The speaker paired very quickly to our iPhones and Bluetooth speakers.  We were both surprised by the volume and quality of sound; this speaker gets loud and the sound quality is crisp and clear too.  Our great room is a 2.5 car converted garage and is very large.  The great room is also slightly adjacent from the remainder of our home which can cause some issue with connectivity and range.  We were able to keep good reception in our hallway and dining room; but we could not go outside of that zone without experiencing distortion.

This is a wireless Bluetooth speaker that we plan to use in our great room, exclusively; however, the speaker is portable.  Besides music and media, you can accept phone calls through the speaker very easily.  We keep the speaker on a bookshelf and it does have a ‘retro’ edge.  It pairs well with our mid-century furniture too.

You can find the Wooden-audio Bluetooth speaker on Amazon.com.

Black 100% Woven Silk Bow Tie by Puentes Denver

This review is for the Puentes Denver Black 100% Woven Silk Bow Tie Self-Tie Butterfly Classic Collection Gift Boxed.  I love how my husband looks in a suit.  However, he rarely wears a bow tie.  The quality of this tie is very nice; the woven silk has a nice texture to it and the fabric has a nice weight to it.  The tie fits my husband’s neck with room to spare; there is a sizer on the rear of the tie that allows him to get a custom fit.  We had to look at a few YouTube! Videos to get the process of tying the bow tie properly correctly.  After a few attempts, my husband got the hang of it and he can now wear the bow tie with ease.  It is amazing how a simple bow tie can give a man such a finished and crisp look.

The tie does arrive in a gift box and with tissue paper, so it is ready for gift giving.  Keep this one on your short list for the man that has style.  This is a unique and stylish gift.  The Puentes Denver Black Bow Tie can be found on Amazon.com.

Hand Blown Glass Water Decanter by Bib&Sola

This review is for the Bib&Sola Hand Blown Glass Water Decanter (1.2L), rose by Bib&Sola.  This is the perfect gift for someone that has everything.  You cannot deny the awesomeness of a handmade gift.  You can feel the varying layers of paint on the decanter; I also noticed slight brush strokes along the areas with paint.  Firstly, the decanter is a 1.2 liter decanter which holds about 41 ounces of fluid.  I keep my decanter on my nightstand; both I and my husband have a drink of water near as we need it through the night.  I selected the rose option, and it is a soft pink color.  It is not a bubblegum or baby pink; instead, it appears to have a bit of grey-tone mixed in.  The packaging of the decanter is equally as nice as the decanter.  The box is filled with tissue paper and an invoice is sealed with the insignia of the company; it reads, “Hand Blown One-of-a-Kind Contemporary Art Glass, Bib & Sola, A Stylish Way of Drinking, An Elegant Way of Giving”.

This is a truly unique item and will delight your family and friends if they are lucky enough to receive it as a gift.  The decanter is beautiful enough to be showcased on a dining room table.  You will quickly recognize that this is a handmade item.

You can purchase the decanter on Amazon.com.

Microbiome Plus Gastrointestinal Probiotics from Microbiome Plus+

This review is for the Microbiome Plus Gastrointestinal Probiotics L Reuteri NCIMB 30242 and Prebiotics scFOS, GI Digestive Supplements, Allergy Safe & Gluten Free for Men and Women (1 Month Supply) from Microbiome Plus+.  I take a probiotic to keep my gut healthy and to keep nasty things like bloating, gas and constipation at bay.  This is my first exposure to taking a system which includes both a Probiotic and Prebiotic.

Over 80% of our immune system is located in our intestines.  If you don’t have healthy flora in your intestines, you are more prone to contracting illnesses, experiencing weight gain, battling seasonal and other allergies, bloating, gas and constipation.  There are many reasons for keeping the gut healthy.  This system is manufactured in North America, Canada to be exact.  The pills are gluten free and the capsules are derived from vegetables.

This box has a 28 day supply; each pill is taken 2 times a day with meals.  The prebiotic also contains fiber, which is a good addition.  I staggered the pills, 1 alternated 1 pill daily for 5 days to allow my system to adjust.  From there I took 1 pill a day, instead of the recommended 2.  My transition was an easy one and I have not had any side effects.

I am not a fan of taking four pills daily to protect my gastrointestinal tract.  It would be great if the number of pills could be reduced to two daily.  I also think the manufacturer should recommend that people new to pro and prebiotics transition slowly.  My system is accustomed to taking a probiotic; but it is sensitive to changes and would not have responded positively to the dramatic change.  It would also be convenient for the consumer to get a larger supply rather than a 28 day supply.

You can purchase the Microbiome system on Amazon.com.

Kaffina Kaffe Premium Gourmet Ground Coffee – Blends – Dark Roasted Perfetto Coffee

This review is for the Kaffina Kaffe Premium Gourmet Ground Coffee – Blends – Dark Roasted Perfetto Coffee.  This is a great, dark roasted ground coffee.  I drink at least one cup of coffee on most days.  I prefer dark roasts, because they have the boldest of flavors.  Some dark roasts can get a bitter or burnt taste, so I am not a fan of them all.  I brewed my coffee in a French Press.  The coffee came out dark with a rich and welcoming aroma.  I added a bit of cream and sweetener to my cup.  I noticed some chocolate undertones and found the flavor to be very smooth.  There was no trace of bitterness and no burnt taste either.  This would work great as a Cold Brew coffee as well.  The bag is re-sealable; however, I store my coffee in the freezer to keep it as fresh as possible.

You can purchase the Kaffina Kaffe Premium Gourmet Ground Coffee on Amazon.com.

PURE ARTISAN SHEA BUTTER ALL NATURAL SOAP BAR

This review is for the PURE ARTISAN SHEA BUTTER ALL NATURAL SOAP BAR – 3.75 – 4 OZ.  This is a nice soap that provides plenty of suds and does not dry out my skin.  I used the soap with my Clarisonic cleansing brush and it provided a wonderfully hydrating and deep cleanse to my skin.  There is a slight scent that dissipates as soon as I rinse my skin.  The scent is very faint and should not obstruct or interfere with anyone that is sensitive to scents.  While I do not have sensitive skin; the skin on my face will break-out if/when I use products that cause my pores to clog.  This is an all-natural soap that balances the level of oils and fats with cleansing agents.   You can purchase a sample size of this product for under $3.00 (which is what I received for this review).

Do yourself a favor and support an independent artisan.  You can purchase the soap on the Dazzle Beauty Store website.

HydraCap Deep Hydrating Conditioning Cap by Treasured Locks

This review is for the HydraCap Deep Hydrating Conditioning Cap.  I have natural hair that is also color treated.  I give my hair a lot of care and deep conditioning is part of my normal maintenance routine.  I usually deep condition overnight to ensure every section of my hair gets the amount of moisture it needs.  I will usually use a plastic cap on top of my hair and wrap a towel or t-shirt over the plastic cap.  This HydraCap is a new concept for me.  I washed and conditioned my hair like normal and placed the HydraCap upon my head; my hair is very thick and pretty long, so I turned my head upside down to ensure it all fit inside the cap.  I have used shrink wrap to secure packages before and this product works in the same manner.  As you expose the cap to heat, the plastic shrinks in size to secure the cap to your head.  You should begin around the edges of your head and then work your way up towards the center of the head.  I was surprised by how quickly the ‘shrinking’ process went.  But, I was very pleased with how much heat my hair retained after the shrinking process.  I achieved better deep conditioning in 60 minutes than I do overnight. The heat from the dryer coupled with the natural heat from my head and scalp gave me ample conditioning.  The price point of the HydraCap is good too at $1.00 per treatment.  Don’t hesitate on this one, this is a great buy.

You can purchase the HydraCap on the Treasured Locks website.
