The Nutro Company Adult Limited Ingredient Diet Dog Food with Lamb and Whole Brown Rice Formula ★★★★☆

The Nutro Company Adult Limited Ingredient Diet Dog Food with Lamb and Whole Brown Rice Formula

My dog seems to like The Nutro Company Adult Limited Ingredient Diet Dog Food with Lamb and Whole Brown Rice Formula, even though it doesn’t look the least bit tasty (plain round kibble). It doesn’t upset her tummy, either — no diarrhea. I’m happy it has grains, unlike the other dog foods that tout no grains, because I don’t think grains are the evil everyone else thinks they are. My dog needs a little grain.

The only thing I’m not crazy about is it advertising smaller stools. I’m not a vet, but at least in humans, it’s good to have bulky (not loose) stools. It helps the digestive track. It’s why we are supposed to eat fiber. I get it. No one likes to pick up more poop than they have to, but lets think about the dog here. Do you like having small, brick-like stools? No? Then why do that to the dog? Okay, so I’m not seeing her too constipated, and she likes her food. Four stars.

B.angel New Map Women’s Fashion Soft Backpack ★★★★★

B.angel New Map Women’s Fashion Soft Backpack Bags (New 731)

The B.angel New Map Backpack is more of a purse than a backpack. If you want to haul school books and supplies, it’s too small, but it’s a large purse that has more than enough room for everything, including large tablets.

The top closes with one snap button and a drawstring, with a flap that clasps in the front for three layers of security. That actually makes it a little inconvenient to get into, but there is a large zippered pocket in the front and a small zippered pocket in the back for storing things I frequently need, like my wallet and keys. Inside, there’s a zippered pocket and two open pockets, which seem to be standard nowadays.

The backpack purse is well-constructed and elegantly designed. In fact, I received a compliment from a total stranger – a male. I have never received a compliment from a man on my backpack purses. People take notice. Yes, they do.

Efancy Men’s Pure Silk Tie ★★★★★

Efancy Men’s Pure Silk Tie Navy

What a handsome tie. It came in a box with a magnetic closure. Inside, we found the tie wrapped up in vellum paper and sealed with a sticker. My husband has been wearing the Efancy Men’s Tie to work and it makes the look complete. I love the colors. It evokes a sense of power and professionalism. I imagine navy would coordinate with most men’s wardrobes. The seams a solid and there are not visible threads hanging. It’s a well-made tie. He likes it.

Axe White Label Styling Cream ★★★☆☆

Axe White Label Styling Cream, Night

Axe products are usually directed at men, but the Axe Styling Cream bottle is white and doesn’t sport the manly look. I figured maybe Axe is going unisex. I’ll try it. Like I thought, there’s no manly scent, but no floral or fruity scent that would repel men, either. I decided to put it on.

From the looks of it in my hand, I thought it would leave a residue. No residue, but the hold is very light. Mousse, hairspray, and gel hold much better. By the end of the day, I had to spray on some hairspray to keep my hair out of my face.

Champion Absolute Workout Knee Tight ★★★★★

Champion Absolute Workout Knee Tight Women’s Color: Black

The Champion Tight is definitely workout wear and not everyday wear. The material is that shiny, stretchy, moisture-wicking variety — not too thin. I used it for my workout at the gym and it’s comfortable. I like it because it’s shorter, which means I stay cooler. I have a 30 inch waist (size 10 pants) and medium fits me perfectly.

Chinet Paper Lunch Plates ★★★★★

Chinet Paper Lunch Plates, 8 3/4″

I love Chinet! They are thick, they don’t leak, and they hold their form — which means a bag of 225 plates really is 225 plates. There’s no need to double or triple up. Add to that, I don’t have too like I’m being cheap. These plates are about as small as you’d want for meals. Any smaller and they’d be for snacks and appetizers. I like them because they help me with portion control, and I’m doing a good deed by helping others do the same.

Daily Chef Clear Plastic Cups ★★★★★

Daily Chef Clear Plastic Cups, 16 oz.

I bought a bag of Daily Chef Clear Plastic Cups at a big box store for my son’s parties. They are large enough to hold a canful of soda, just what teenage boys need. The cups hold up well. They don’t squish too easily. They are clear, very simple in design, which I like. I would buy them again.

Hefty Tall Kitchen Recycling Trash Bags ★★★☆☆

Hefty Tall Kitchen Recycling Trash Bags, Clear, 45 Count

These are not ordinary tall kitchen trash bags. They are tall kitchen recycling bags, which means they are clear. I guess that’s so we can see that what’s inside is paper or plastic or cans. I’m not going to dock Hefty Recycling Trash Bags because they are clear. The product description announces it boldly, the box has it in big letters. People who buy it know what they are getting into.

I don’t know anyone who buys bags they use only for recycling, so we did what everyone else did and used them for regular garbage. My son is in charge of that, and he dislikes these bags. Why? Because they don’t stretch and they don’t take the form of the trash can so they don’t “fit” properly. He gives it three stars.

I think we’ll go back to our regular trash bags that can do double duty.

Best Travel Pillow ★★★★☆

Best Travel Pillow – Memory Foam Travel Pillow – Plane Travel Pillow – Travel Neck Pillow Comes with Free Space Saver Carry Bag

The Best Travel Pillow is the largest I own — a little too large. I have to move the arms out of the way too keep them from pressing on my neck, but it provides firm support. I can get comfortable by bending the arms behind my shoulders or rotating it so that the opening is on one side and not in front. Actually, opening on one side feels pretty good. The best thing about memory foam is I don’t have to inflate it, and it squishes down into a carry bag for storage.

ANART® Ex Series An-ExT 2.0inch Sports Action Camera ★★★★★

ANART® Ex Series An-ExT 2.0inch Sports Action Camera + 16GB SD Card + Extra Battery Full HD 1080P 12MP 140 Degree Waterproof Digital Helmet Mini Video Black Outdoor WIFI Sport Cameras HDMI Output

The ANART® An-ExT Action Camera sets itself apart from the others by offering an extra battery with a battery charger. I was able to charge both at the same time by plugging my camera and the battery charger into USB ports. This camera also comes with the usual mix of connectors, a waterproof case, a micro SD card, and Wi-Fi capability. I see lag in the Wi-Fi, but it’s not bad. The only thing lacking in this kit is a carry case, but that can be purchased separately.

Other things you might want to purchase separately are accessories. The cam is compatible with GoPro accessories, like my dog GoPro harness. I had so much fun using my dog to create videos. If you haven’t tried it, you should.
