LED DESK LAMP FROM AMBERTRONIX

I’ve been LOVING this LED lamp from Ambertronix! I’ve been needing a desk lamp SO bad lately because my nights just seem to be getting later and later with all of this work piled up and it’s been really hard to focus with my overhead lamp so this couldn’t come at a better time! It came on time, nicely packaged, and looked exactly like the pictures online. I was expecting this to be super tiny but it’s actually really nicely sized. I included a picture of me actually holding it so you could see it in comparison to my hand because it really surprised me!

Somehow even though it’s pretty big, it still managed to be fairly lightweight which is really impressive. As you can see in the pictures, the neck is flexible so you can bend it upwards or downwards depending on which way you need the light to point which I love. It makes it really great for when I’m at my desk working and need to be able to see at my hands and also when I’m at my desk doing my makeup and need to be able to see my face.

The light has five settings which I really appreciate because when I’m laying in bed I want a soft light but for a lot of other things I need a brighter light. The controls are super easy to operate as well which is saying something because I definitely consider myself technology challenged, lol. Recently I’ve been using this for indoor product photography in addition to my regular table lamps because it’s been a little darker out and it’s working out PERFECTLY! I’ve honestly been using it for so much because it’s a really great lamp. I’m super happy with it so far so I would definitely recommend it to anyone!

SPLENDA NATURALS SUGAR & STEVIA SWEETENER BLEND

I just got these two free bags of SPLENDA® Naturals Sugar & Stevia Sweetener Blend from Crowdtap and I couldn’t be happier with them! They came on time, nicely packaged, and looked exactly like the pictures online. The reason they’re different from regular Splenda is because they’re a mix of stevia and cane sugar and SOMEHOW it’s so much better for you. Visit their website if you want to know more about the science behind it because it’s fascinating but all I really care about is that it tastes great and it fits well into my new, healthy diet! Those of you who know me know that I’ve been on a diet for almost a year now and one of the biggest challenges I’ve faced is cutting sugar out. I’m down to about 40 grams of sugar a day which is SO hard because I used to eat triple that. Until now I’ve just been supplementing all of my recipes with Splenda packets but this is nice because it’s a lot more sugar-like and tastes way better!

My favorite thing to put it in is plain yogurt and sweet potatoes because it takes a healthy, bland snack and makes it indulgent and delicious without making it unhealthy! The only thing I don’t like it for is my coffee. The one place I don’t like using it is on my morning coffee because I like it REALLY sweet. Nobody else I know can stand to take even one sip of my coffee because they think it’s sickeningly sweet but I love it. I currently use over 5 packets of Splenda sweetener in my coffee to get it as sweet as I like it and while Splenda Naturals is healthier than regular sugar, if I were to use as much of it as I would need to make my coffee as sweet as I’m used to my calories, carbs, and sugars would go through the roof so I’m sticking to the packets for that! Overall, I’m really happy with it and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to lower their sugar intake without sacrificing taste!

CAT CUPS FROM AW FASHIONS

I’m OBSESSED with my new coffee mugs from AW Fashions, they’re so cute! I was so excited for them to arrive because I think they’re hilarious and I HAD to have them because anybody who knows me knows I’m the biggest cat lady in the world and I’m 100% the best cat mom ever (don’t even try to fight me on this, lol) who does everything for her cat. They came on time and were nicely packaged up in bubble wrap and they were in their own small boxes inside of the Amazon box so they were very secure and undamaged when they arrived.

They look exactly as pictured on Amazon as well so that’s great. The glass is thick and the cups have weight to it but they aren’t uncomfortably heavy. They’re standard sized 11 ounce white coffee mugs with the designs you see in the pictures but they feel like they’re definitely well made. These are only two of the MANY AW Fashions coffee mugs that I’ve had over the years so I can tell you that they’re very sturdy and dependable. The oldest cup I have from them is about a year old now and it looks exactly the same as the day I got it. It doesn’t have a single chip or stain on it so I’m really happy with their quality. I love these cups so much and highly recommend them to any cat ladies out there!

U-Shaped Maternity/Body Pillow from Queen Rose

I just got this adorable pink & blue body pillow from Queen Rose and I couldn’t be happier with it so far! It came on time, nicely packaged, and looked exactly like the pictures online. It’s specifically designed for pregnant people but it says on their page that it helps people with fibromyalgia, sciatica, gastric reflux, congestion, and carpal tunnel syndrome as well as help eliminate tossing and turning and supports your back, belly, sides, head, knees and feet. It’s designed in this really big U-Shape that follows the natural shape of your body and makes it PERFECT for sleeping because it keeps you supported without propping you up to high. You can also use the sides to hug or put between your legs and it’s SO comfortable!! It’s really easy to clean, too, because it has a removable cover that you just pop off and throw in the wash which I REALLY appreciate because who doesn’t hate dirty pillows?

I was thinking of giving this to my friend who’s trying to get pregnant right now but I knew the minute it came that I wasn’t going to be able to give it up, it’s too comfortable!! It seems really nicely made and durable, too, which is definitely appreciated. It comes with a removable cover so that you can keep it clean. I’m absolutely loving it so far and everyone who’s seen it in my room wants one too now! This is the second pillow I’ve had like this now but the first one was just plain white, this one is so much cuter and matches my room so I’m really happy about it! I would definitely recommend this to anyone who’s pregnant, having trouble sleeping due to pain, or anyone who just wants to be super comfortable!!

Cozy Plush House Slippers from Caramella Bubble

I got these adorable indoor slippers from Caramella Bubble about a week or two ago and they’re so nice! They came on time, very nicely packaged, and looked exactly like the pictures online. As you can see in the pictures, the packaging they arrived in was almost as cute as the slippers themselves! I love the little pink ribbon, so nice. Anyway the slippers are made out of some sort of fleece like material on the inside that is SO unbelievably soft and the insoles are even better because according to the website they’re made of memory foam and sponge and you can definitely tell! It feels like you’re walking on fuzzy, warm marshmallows. It’s amazing,  I CANNOT wait until Fall arrives so I can wear these non-stop! They’re also great to wear indoor and outdoor because the bottom has a non-slip, waterproof grip which is awesome because I tend to go outside on my porch a lot in the fall and winter and HATE soppy slippers, lol. I have to admit, though– I have no idea what animal this is supposed to be. No clue, but they’re still cute and I love the little pom pom ears! I’m in love with these slippers, I would definitely recommend them. They have other options too, including bunnies which I really want to get next!

Shower Genius Idea Board | Waterproof Notepad with Pen

Just got the Shower Genius idea board and I’m so excited about it because I am SUCH a shower thinker. I always come up with my best plans and ideas in the shower but I have no way to write it down so I tend to forget them by the time I’m dry and ready to type it into my phone or write it down on paper. This is the perfect thing for that because it’s 100% waterproof so you can write it down without it getting ruined or the text washing away. It comes in a bag with the board, a couple suction cup hooks to attach it to your shower, a special pen/pencil thing that writes on the board, and a towel to erase the text when you’re ready. It came on time, nicely packaged, and looked exactly like the pictures online.

The board is not what I expected at all! I’ve had a shower notepad in the past and it was made out of this thin, slick white paper. This seems like a clear piece of plastic or something like that. It’s kind of cool because when it doesn’t have writing on it you can barely see it in your shower so it’s very sleek. The pen.. I have no idea what that thing is made of but it definitely works! I was half expecting it to faintly draw in like a light, too hard to read gray color but it’s  VERY vibrant and dark black so there’s no mistaking what you’ve written. The only downsides I have for this product is that it didn’t come with any instructions! I don’t know how to install it because it doesn’t tell you. Plus the suction hooks don’t really stick to my wall very well because they’re not tiled. That’s not really an issue though because I just keep it on my window ledge. It’s also REALLY hard to remove the text once you’re ready to start over which is annoying but all that aside I really love this product! It’s helped me a lot because I’m not forgetting any of my awesome ideas AND I can take it with me into other rooms if I need to read off of it later. I would definitely recommend it to any other shower thinkers out there!

6pc. Long Silicone Drinking Straws Set from WEBSUN

I just got this six pack of silicone drinking straws from WEBSUN and I love them! They came on time, nicely packaged, and looked exactly like the pictures online. When I got them I immediately ripped open the packaging to test them out because I was so excited and they worked PERFECTLY! Unfortunetly, when my sister’s dog came over she got a hold of the one I was using so that’s why one isn’t pictured, lol. She completely chewed up the green one so if you have dogs make sure to keep these out of reach because apparently they’re a fun toy, lol!

Anyway, I’ve been using the other ones all week and I really love them! I thought they might be too big but they’re actually perfect. I love that they’ve got a bend at the top too because I can put them inside of my big water bottles and they don’t fall down to the bottom like my other straws. Oh and it came with a scrubber too! It’s really long and small so you can fit it directly inside of the straws to clean them out which is awesome because I usually have to throw my straws away after awhile of using them but not these! I’m super happy with this set so far and I would definitely recommend them to anyone who likes to drink with straws at home!
