Infuser Water Bottle

I recently was given the chance to check out this Infuser Water Bottle

I really liked this water infuser bottle. To me it is the perfect size holding 25oz. I think the fact that it has finger grips and a locking lid is a fantastic design idea. The water bottle itself is quite sturdy. The grips make the bottle easier and more comfortable to hold. (I accidentally dropped this in the car the other day while handing it to my daughter in the back seat and was so thrilled to see that it didn't leak at all because it was locked.) There is also a loop that you can use to hook this bottle onto your belt, knapsack, gym bag, book bag. 

Another pleasant surprise came in my e-mail from this company, several recipes for water infusions. I cannot wait to try some of them instead of my standard lemon water like in my photo above. Since I received this item I have found myself drinking a lot more water. I easily got two full bottles of infused water with the fruit I used to make it. This bottle has a dual filtration spout strainer and infusers basket,you can easily put more fruits on the outside of the basket for even more flavor without the worry of excess pulp and pits

The fact that this bottle is BPA free helps to put my mind at ease. I think that I will buy a couple more of these for my daughters who love buying flavored water . Having this item will save me a lot of money in the long run. It is also easy to clean and dishwasher safe. It comes with a 30 Day Satisfaction Guarantee, and a Limited Lifetime Warranty, it even covers accidental damage. The product insert will explain it all.

Fast Froth

I was lucky enough to get a chance to to review this milk frother. Billed as The Best Milk Frother.

I love, love, LOVE kitchen gadgets so I was very happy that I was able to try this product out. I also love lattes but my wallet sadly does not. What a thrill it is to be able to make my own at home. As you can see it does froth up the milk nicely. Having never used an item like this before I will admit to making a tiny mess. I spilled some of the milk on my first attempt at a latte, but it was nothing bad. The latte itself came out great and I had no issues at all when I made my second one. 

The milk frother fit comfortably in my hand, it is not at all bulky and so very easy to use. You just need to place the frother into a mug filled a third of the way with hot, but not boiling milk, with the spiral near the bottom of the mug and press the button to turn it on. You then whisk the milk to three or four times its original volume. It all happens within seconds. Even my kids tried it out with some hot chocolate, (which was fantastic by the way, they loved the foam on top), and the item is a since to clean up. You just have to rinse it off, remembering not to submerge this item in water or get the motor or battery compartments wet. 

I also loved the fact that the required 2 AA batteries came included with this item.

Yes the Superpoints program is back and I could not be any happier, I am back to spinning and winning once again. This is one of my favorite programs for earning gift cards at no cost to myself. I have been a member of the site's relaunch since late June, and as of June 25, 2014 today is September 17, 2014 I have managed to cash out for $145 in Amazon gift cards and I have enough in my balance for another $25 one. I was a memeber when the site previously ran as well and earned many gift cards and even a free Keurig coffee machine with the points I amassed there. The only thing that I do not like is how they  have broken the prizes off into tiers and how you can only redeem a prize in the tier one time. I think that if I have enough points I should be able to redeem that prize as much as I would like to. This is a great way to help supplement my holiday shopping, and can do the same for you.

You do not get spam mail from joining this site.if that is a concern of yours, and there are several ways to earn extra Superpoints. In addition to pushing the button to earn points there is an Amazing Offers tab where Superpoints can be earned by doing a number of various activities from watching a video, scrolling through a slide show, downloading a free app to your mobile device to making a purchase and more.  You are also rewarded when someone uses your referral link to sign up for the site. Everytime one of your referrals wins your account will be credited with Superpoints equal to half of their win as well. There is no limit on the points that your referrals can earm for you. You just need to be patient  with this site after verifying your e mail and filling out your profile you start out with 10 spins a day. Withing a 3-4 days of daily play you will usually have earned enough points to level up to the Bronze level and are issued 25 spins a day. If you are able to get 5 people to sign up under you link and reach an XP level of 10 (you advance in XP by playing daily (completing some offers will boost it as well even the free ones) you will then get 100 spins a day. You can also purchase an up grade to the Platinum Level where you will receive 200 spins a day sutomatically without having to have the 5 referrals required to advance. 

I really am a fan of this program and if you stick with it it pays out well. Too many people get discouraged and give up too quickly. Don't be one of them if you join those of us on the site. I really do hope that you join us.

RealPower™ AirX Premium Ultra-Thin Portable Charger

I recently was given the oppurtitity to test out this item.*

As you can see that the RealPower™ AirX Premium Ultra-Thin Portable Charger is indeed rather thin and comes with a charging cord and five interchangable heads to charges a variety of portable devices. It was a little heavier than I expected it to be, but that is not really an issue at all. It fits nicely in my purse and laptop case. This device will charge the Apple iPhone 6, 5s, 5c, 5, 4s, iPad, Air, Mini, Samsung Galaxy S5. S4. S3, Note, nexus, LG, HTC, Moto, PSP, to name a few. My favorite thing about this power bank is that it has dual USB outputs, a great thing when you have three kids who all want their devices charged at the same time when you have a limited mumber of outlets in your home. I like how there are power indicator lights on the top of the power bank to let you know how much charge is left. My only wish is that this came with a pouch to keep the different adapters in. Also it should be noted that this product does not come with an AC adapter to charge it. You will have to use any standard mini USB phone charger to charge it. 

Since receiving this item I have used it to charge multiple items that we have here at my home, cell phones, my nook, kindles, 4th generation iPod (I love the fact that there was a charger for this item included). I was quite surprised at how quickly it charged my portable devices. I also like the fact that the ports light up as the connected devices charge so you know that it is on and working.. There is also a tiny LED flashlight on the power bank which might come in handy.

 I think that this is an item that I'd like to keep on my person since I have a toddler and will bring along my kindle for him to play or watch movies on while my older girls at at their dance or music lessons. It is something to keep him entertained and I won't have to worry about the battery dying on him any more. This would be an excellent item for someone who travels a lot to have since I have seen people stalking and jumping at open outlets at airports before. 

Over all I am very pleased with this product.

Silicone Baking Mat

I was given the opportinuty to try out this baking mat from 3Nindo as part of a promotion.*

Let me start off by saying that I love to bake, and will always choose my oven over the mirowave for heating up left overs, snack foods and the like. I have alway disliked my food sticking to the pan itself or the aluminum foil that I use to line the pan before I place it in the oven. Who doesn't right? I have seen items like this before and I had been wanting to try it out. I could just never justify purchasing one though with three kids the extra money was always needed / used elsewhere  and usually on them. So when the chance to test this mat came up I jumped on it and was thrilled to have been chosen to do so. 

I thought a great way to test it would be by baking some chocolate chip cookies. I figured that my two oldest, who had just started the school year would love to come home to a nice treat waiting for them. I opened the package and washed the mat before use. It had a slightly slippery texture and I wondered how it would fare in the heat of the oven. It did just great. I was so impressed at how the cookies just slid off the mat with no prodding. The bottoms were beautifully browned and the cookies them selves were baked to perfection. My first thought after trying it out was "man I should of bought this a long time ago".  I was even more impressed when I reheated up some pizza and the cheese that bubbled over did not burn or stick to the mat. Baked on cheese just peeled right off.  In fact I have even just but some mozzarella on it and melted it for my girls to nibble on. Would be great for tomato and mozzarella sandwiches if you like those. I have used it on several other dishes that I have made all with the same happy results. The cooking times of everything that I have made were not altered in any way. The clean-up on this item is a snap too, not to mention no scrubbing of the pans that you would of used without it.

 I would happily reccomend this product to everyone.
