VETRA Focus Classic Athletic T-shirt ★★★★★

VETRA Focus Classic Athletic T-shirt Navy Blue Gym Sport Training Mens Soccer Football Jersey DRY-FAST Short Sleeves Tee Shirts NEW (X-Large)

My husband wears XL and that’s what I got him. The VETRA Focus Classic Athletic T-shirt fits him perfectly. “Comfortable,” he says.

The smooth, lightweight polyester promises a wicking action. After a run on the treadmill, my husband said he didn’t feel as wet as he usually does in his cotton t-shirts. Impressive, as he’s always dripping wet after a workout.

KMASHI® CD Slot Car Mount Holder ★★☆☆☆

KMASHI® CD Slot Car Mount Holder Stand Cradle for 3.5″ to 5.5″ Smartphones iPhone 6 Plus 5 5S 5C 4S, iPod Touch 5th Generation, Samsung Galaxy S5 S4 S3, Google Nexus 4, HTC One M8,GPS (Black)

I wanted to like this KMASHI® CD Slot Car Mount much more than I do. It thought it would fit deeper in the CD slot. It doesn’t. It barely goes in and relies on friction to keep it in place. While it’s in there, it presses on some electronic component in the CD player that causes the radio display to fade in and out. Not good. On top of that, the mount does not adjust well enough for me to get a good view of my phone while driving. Because of these problems, especially when I saw the display on my radio malfunctioning, caused me to take this out immediately and discontinue using it.

Incipio Top Folio Cover for Kindle Voyage ★★★★☆

Incipio Top Folio Cover for Kindle Voyage, Chevron

The black and white chevron pattern on textured fabric on the Incipio is très chic. The Voyage snaps in and stays in. The cover flips up and over, but it doesn’t turn the Voyage on and off. There’s a pass through button on the back for that. When closed, use the elastic strap to keep the cover on.

The Amazon product photo shows the cover being used as a stand. That only works if the table isn’t smooth, because this cover doesn’t have grip and it will slide flat — at least it does for me.

Clear Plain TPU Rubber Gel Case Skin Cover for New iPod Touch ★★☆☆☆

Clear Plain TPU Rubber Gel Case Skin Cover for New iPod Touch 5th Generation 5G 5

The Clear Plain TPU Rubber Gel Case fits my daughter’s 5th generation iPod Touch. It’s a thin jelly case. I expected that, but the clear cover is marred. She tried to wash it, thinking it was dirty, but it’s not. It just looks it. There’s also not enough clearance around the charging port. I have to take the case off to charge her iPod Touch using the cable that came with her device. It was cheap and will work for now, but we will be shopping for a new case.

Stanley 33-425 Powerlock 25-Foot by 1-Inch Measuring Tape ★★★★★

Stanley 33-425 Powerlock 25-Foot by 1-Inch Measuring Tape – Original

The Stanley 33-425 Powerlock is a tape measure built to last. We’ve had it for years sitting in our drawer, taking it out whenever the need arises. The metal housing and tape means it’s heavy — 13.4 ounces heavy — but it stands up to anything.

The locking mechanism works well. The metal tape holds its form, bending when needed, then snapping back to shape. I don’t use the metal belt clip on the back, but it’s there. Inches and feet are clearly marked out. The only problem? You won’t find metric units.

Bingoo 3.5mm Hi-Fi Over-Ear Wired Stereo Music and Gaming Headset ★★★★☆

Bingoo 3.5mm Hi-Fi Over-Ear Wired Stereo Music and Gaming Headset 2014 Newest Premium headset Compatible with Any Pc or Mac Computer , Tablet , Smartphone, Sony Playstation , Music Player for Kids Men or Woman – Indoor – Outdoor

Bingoo Headset (confused about the name, listed on Amazon as “Bingoo” but the headset is marked “Bingle”) are wired headphones that require a 3.5mm auxiliary port. I have been using them for video editing so as not to disturb my children at night.

So far, it has performed well. The size adjusts to fit my head comfortably. The padding around my ears is soft and provides good sound insulation. The in-line volume control is conveniently located. I’m no audiophile, but I did listen to some music and it satisfied me.

The headphones are full size and they don’t fold up. It takes up a bit of real estate on my desk. The inner part of the band is rubberized. I like that. The outer band looks like brushed metal but feels like quality plastic. It works well, and I find it attractive.

Ohuhu® Foonee Manicure Set ★★★★★

Ohuhu® Foonee 12 in 1 Manicure & Pedicure Clipper Manicure Set, Travel & Grooming Kit

I’ve had other manicure sets, but none so nice as the Ohuhu® Foonee. The clippers are a good quality, and we get three different types, plus a cuticle cutter and scissors, along with tweezers, a nail file, and other tools I don’t even know what to do with. An acne needle? Perish the thought! An ear picker? Isn’t there something about not putting small objects in our ears?

I love the compact case. I looks like a wallet. My only issue so far is the tweezers. They work, but not with ease.

Extra Large Bamboo Cutting Board ★★★★☆

Extra Large Bamboo Cutting Board – 18×12 Thick Strong Bamboo Wood Cutting Board with Drip Groove by Premium Bamboo

It’s not the largest cutting board I own, but for its size, it has some heft. After I hand washed and dried it, I applied some butcher block oil (everyone should do this) and my Bamboo Cutting Board looks so healthy. I could bring this out when we are preparing holiday dinner to show it off. There’s a groove for catching juices, which I haven’t had need for yet. So far, I’ve cut a two bags of apples and all sorts of vegetables on it. It works as well as any cutting board I’ve ever used and makes for a lovely sight.

COTTEE Waterproof and Shockproof Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker ★★★★☆

COTTEE Waterproof and Shockproof Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker 3.0 with Bluilt-in Microphone, Handsfree Speakphone and Control Buttons and Dedicated Removable Suction Cup Compatible with iPhone 6 plus, 6 5s,5c,5, 4s,4,Samsung Galaxy S5, S4, S3, Note

I’ve had this rugged little COTTEE Bluetooth Speaker suctioned to the tile wall of my shower, blasting Christmas music from my phone. The sound runs on the cool side, but shower walls helps with the acoustics. I can control volume and skip tracks with the speaker buttons so I don’t need to step out.

This is a speaker that’s simple and easy to operate. It paired right away and it reconnects every time I turn it on. It turns itself off after 15 minutes of no activity, in case I forget to turn it off. Bluetooth range is very good. Phone calls aren’t bad, either. They come in clear, though distant.

To tie it all together, I like the look. I imagine it outdoors in the woods. The suction cup comes off (with lots of effort, actually) and a carabiner is included to hang on a backpack. I can’t find the IP rating, but the micro USB port is covered and the shower hasn’t hurt it.

Attmu Non Slip Skid Yoga Pilates Socks ★★★★★

Attmu Non Slip Skid Yoga Pilates Socks with Grips Cotton for Women, 4 Pairs, 4 Colors

I’ve had yoga socks with grippy soles, but my feet slipped and slid all over inside. The Attmu Yoga Socks grip the floor, and they grip my feet inside. I’m stuck wherever I walk, which is great on my tile floors. You don’t have to be a yoga addict to appreciate these socks.
