Ozeri Precision II Digital Bath Scale (440 LB Edition) Review.

My website gives me the opportunity to try healthier alternatives out there.  Since I have been eating better, and walking at the park that is almost a 2 mile trail around a lake I have lost more weight. I have the best scale, ever, for tracking my weight loss with.

I have been using the Ozeri Precision II Digital Bath Scale (440LB Edition) with Widescreen Blue Xbright LCD and Step-on Activation for almost a year now to check my weight loss progress.  It has passed the test of us heavier users, and then some.

The scale turns on, only when you step down on it.  Any other kind of movement does not turn it on, which helps a lot with prolonging battery life.  The Step-on Activation makes it convenient to also store.  I store mine right up against the bathroom wall in a little cubby area, and bring it out when it's needed.  It has the same batteries in it, that came with it.

It has been with me through a lot of weight loss.  I've lost 75 lbs since March, my husband has lost over 100 (he exercises a lot more than I do, and eats better.) I just love how accurate the Ozeri Precision Bath Scale is.  Would I recommend this scale to a friend? Yes! I would, right now the scale is on sale for $20.00 on Amazon.  You can't get a scale this advanced in store for that low of a price.

If you are looking for a precision bathroom scale that lasts, and can be used for bigger numbers check out Ozeri on Amazon.  Lot's of great affordable products.

I received this product to facilitate a review, all opinions, and photos are my own.

Wednesday, January 23 Tracks HD On-Ear Headphones Review

I never noticed how horrible the cheapo in ear headphones I had were til I put on Sol Republics Tracks HD Head phones.  The sound quality blew me away.  Even just small clicks had this in-depth acoustic sound to them, easiest way for me to explain it was it sounded like I was in a closed hallway with high ceilings, that the sound was all around.  I can never go back to those other head phones now.

To really break these babies in, I broke out some P-Funk.  It was nice to block out the Kid show songs, and  whiney-ness for a few!

Depending on the On-Ear head phones you chose (All can be customized by color, which is great!) some have v8, or v10 built in sound engines,  along with deeper bass, higher clarity, and better vocals. I like that there is a volume control on the headphones cord themselves.  The foam on the head phones are extremely soft, and the headphones themselves are flexible as well.  Overall, I am enjoying these! They are also light weight.  

You can find out more about Sol Republic on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube

I received these Headphones for free to review.  Opinion, and pictures are my own!  I was not paid, nor told what to say.

Hammacher Schlemmer Specialty Gifts Review (Mine happens to be a Grinder/Roaster/Coffee Brewer!!)

Holiday Gift Guide: Hammacher Schlemmer has it all!

Wouldn't it be something to take whole beans.. roast.. and grind all in one machine..while at HOME?!?

Recently I was sent the Breville Grinder/Roaster from Hammacher Schlemmer to review.  First I'd like to praise Hammacher Schlemmers customer service, and fast shipment.  This company has been specializing in the best, the only, the unexpected for 164 years. That is truly remarkable, and I honestly praise them for the history behind their company.

The quality of the gift I received from Hammacher Schlemmer made me so giddy.  I love coffee, and I love electronics that do far, and above what others do.  The fact that this company has a whole catalog of products that I would personally like to own every single one of just makes me want to purchase gifts for everyone.  I'm a firm believer in budgeting else where so we can splurge on items like these. Through the long hours at work, to the whiney children at home.. I felt as if shopping from here would be like a well earned reward. 

Best. Present. Ever.  I am an avid dark roast consumer. Now I own a machine, that roasts, grinds, and is just classy.  Thank you Hammacher Schlemmer.  I have nothing but great things to say about your company, and you do offer the best gifts to be found.  Really, there is something for everyone in this catalog.  

If you'd like to check out Hammacher Schlemmer, or to request a catalog, go here.  Really, who wouldn't any of these gifts make happy? 

I know I am extremely happy with mine. It's a great, easy, way to grind, and brew your own coffee.  I can make gourmet, fresh, coffee at home.  For the cost of beans, and the flavoring that I enjoy, it saves me so much money making my own.

Seriously, once you go this fresh, you can never go back.  Even getting coffee made at expensive coffee houses, you still know, it could be FRESHER.
