60 Unique Gel Pens sold by Elite Art US

I love Gel Pens!! They are my Favorite way to color, write letters and just about everything. I use them all the time. This is a great set that comes with 60 High Quality Gel Pens and I am so happy right now!! These are going to be GREAT for Scrapbooking!!

 

 

This set comes with some great pens. They are:

 

12 Glitter
7 Neon
9 Pastel
12 Glitter Neon
4 Standard
10 Metallic
6 Swirl

 

 

Glitter always has and always will be my favorite. I love the Neon Glitter too because it really just pops off the page!! The regular red Glitter is quite dull compared to the Neon Glitter red but that is to be expected considering the Neon Glitter is meant to be brighter.

 

 

They all started right away with the exception of the Standard and then all I had to do was write the word “hello” and then they started. They ink flows very smooth and even as I have had no skips or jumps.

 

 

While the book I used to color on had a black page there was no bleed through as I always put a couple sheets of paper under the page I’m working on. There was no ink on it. I did also do a page with all the pens on it and there were shadows but again no bleed. It says it comes with a Free EBooks and pictures several Adult Coloring Books but I was not offered anything.

 

 

These are really great for anyone including children as they are Non Toxic and Acid Free!! These would make great gifts for birthdays or even a little “just because”. Perfect for any age! Shoot, I am an Adult and I love them but I also share Gel Pens with children as long as I watch them.  With a correction to my Video. I received these 60 Unique Gel Pens in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.

My heart is broken but it will MEND!!!

My heart is BROKEN as Amazon has wiped my reviews and stripped my privileges.If someone needs something reviewed I can still do YouTube Videos and post it on my channel and also do a thorough Blog post that would be just like my review and post it on both my blogs. I am deeply sorrowed by the INJUSTICE Amazon has done to me as they want to give me some generic excuse.

 

I have been a LOYAL and FAITHFUL Amazon Customer for a couple years and held Prime and have held up Amazons Terms of Service the whole time. My Blogs and my YouTube channel will run as normal once I am settled in my new home. I will Blog items I have just as if I were to review them for Amazon as I have promised my Sellers I would. I have plenty of Coloring Books, Coloring Items, and other items to choose from.

 

Trust me when I say you will not be bored. I apologize for my absence while I have been packing and preparing to sell my house, move and buy another home. As soon as I am settled I will be back up and running. I am sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused my Sellers as they will be losing out on the Amazon review but they will still gain the views of my followers.

 

Thank you again for your continued support!! It means a lot to me! I hope you have an Amazing Day!!

Rekucci Women’s “Ease In To Comfort Fit” Stretch Jean Bermuda Short W/ Cuff

I love these Rekucci Jean Ease to comfort fit stretch shorts. I have had a really hard time finding some good quality jean “legging” shorts as my weight fluctuates a lot. But these are perfect. To be honest I used to be very overweight but lost a lot of weight. Because of that I will always have a large stomach. I am disabled so I can’t exercise and before you make comments and tell me that there are exercises I can do. I know and I stay in SUPERVISED Physical Therapy so I can do the exercise that won’t hurt me.

 

 

 
I will start off saying I mistakenly said size 16 in my video but it was really 14. The 14 fit perfect but the 16 which is my normal size is large. They are super easy to get on and very slimming. These are really something that makes me happy because I love to dress nice and these really are nice jeans shorts! They have a really nice metal tag on the back pocket but nothing too flashy. I’m 5’2 so they come past my knee when unrolled but on someone taller they will fit perfect. .

 

 

These are 5 pocket jean shorts and they are form fitting which I really like but they have material with a slight stretch and an easy fit stretch waist to them so I don’t have to worry about them being tight at all. Most shorts like these just have pockets in the back. Shoot!! I have some real zip jean shorts with just pockets in the back.
 

 

It really is nice not having shorts digging into my stomach. I received 2 pairs of these. My husband paid full price for one pair and I got one pair of these Rekucci Jean Ease to comfort fit stretch shorts in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.

First Botany 4 fl. oz Rosemary Essential Oil

This First Botany Rosemary Essential Oil smells great! I have a few oils but I am learning more about Essential Oils in healing uses. I’ve changed a lot about me to try to improve my health and well being and so far not much has worked except for the use of oils.

 

I am a Disabled Veteran and live my life in pain every day. I also suffer the effects of PTSD every day.  PTSD has so many difference effects it can cause with stress and anxiety just being two of them.

 

I use rosemary a lot in the diffuser and the inhalation method to calm down and sooth myself when I get upset which upsets my stomach. Rosemary will also help to soothe an upset stomach when inhaled or smelled or at least it does for me.

 

I also use Rosemary in my hair and on my scalp to help improve the quality of my hair. In 2004 I had Chemotherapy and my hair has been thin ever since and Rosemary is known to stimulate growth and to keep more from falling out. So far it is doing both. My hair is starting to become stronger and I can brush it hair without a ton of my hair coming out in the brush.

 

This 4 fl. oz. Bottle of High Quality First Botany Rosemary comes with a glass dropper. It’s 100% pure, natural, unadulterated and untainted. It is Top of the Line!! It is made with No Toxins, No Additives, No Preservatives, Unfiltered and Undiluted with No Fillers and No artificial ingredients added. It is Therapeutic Grade. I am happy to support it because it is bottled right here in the USA.

 

First Botany stands behind their products too with a 100% Guarantee policy. Try it and if you are not fully satisfied they will refund your money!! First Botany has an awesome line of oils and I own couple of them. I am working on getting more as they a great quality oils! I received this First Botany Rosemary Essential Oil at a discount in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.

925 Sterling Silver Four-claw Studs

I really love these 925 Sterling Silver Studs. They are absolutely stunning! I love earrings but have very few pairs because my ears are very sensitive even to some “so called” Sterling Silver earrings.  My skin is so sensitive that I can only wear Sterling Silver. I have tried every hypoallergenic metal out there and have had no luck.

 

 

These 925 Sterling Silver Studs are super nice.  I have no problems wearing these which is awesome because I love these! These are hypoallergenic and nickel free. I really think it might be the nickel that I am having a reaction to in jewelry because with these I have none. These are so comfortable to wear and they look great also! They “Bling” just like diamonds they are so bright.

 

 

They are Four-claw Studs and the Cubic Zirconia is 1.5 ct. Not only are they a very nice size and highly visible but they are rated as AAA Cubic Zirconias. An AAA rating means that they are High Grade and that they will be a lot better in symmetry, luster and shine than lower grades not rated AAA. These are the best and are also the most popular in Fashion Jewelry.

 

 

These are great for dressing up or for every day wear. I have kept them in since the day I put them in my ears as it’s nice to find a pair of earrings (FINALLY) that I can wear without my ears being irritated. I was fortunate enough to receive these 925 Sterling Silver Studs in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.

Where Is Jody??

Hello my friends!!! I bet you have been wondering where I have been. I know I haven’t been posting a lot and for that I apologize. I feel I must explain so I that is the reason for this.

 

 

I am in the middle of selling a house, buying a house, packing, going to physical therapy, pain management, my VA appointments plus my 10 yr old service dog has had to have two major surgeries this month.

 

 

I ask that you just hang in there with me and let me get settled in the new house. We will be leaving this state at the end of the month and signing on the new house. I will need a week or so to unpack my office and then I will be back to reviewing and posting.

 

 

Please just hang in there with me!! As soon as I am sure about the new house I will post some pictures and a video so you can see why I am SO EXCITED!! I will be leaving the big city and moving to a tiny city in the country.

 

 

Wish me luck and safe travels please as I make this new journey for better health care for myself. This is why we are moving. I hope you have a great weekend and thanks a bunch for sticking around. I will try to post as much as possible between packing.

Gothic – a Dark Fantasy Coloring Book by Selina Fenech

Selina has a great talent for fantasy artistry. I own several of her books and Gothic is awesome! I color to relieve stress and anxiety and I colored my images while waiting for an appointment at the VA. It was simple but oh so beautiful!!

 

 

I love Gothic! This is an AMAZING book!! Gothic Dark Fantasy has a total of 25 amazing images with witches (some with familiars) to maidens (some with lovers) but there are actually 50 pages because you get 2 of each image!! I get to choose weather I want them to be good witches or bad witches and maidens. I can even split the book in half very easily and share it with a friend!!
 

 

The images have beautiful women with gorgeous gowns, flowing hair, and showing strength. This book allows me to color a fantasy style with a sexier flirtier in style. Like I said I own several of Selina’s coloring books and each is Amazing in its own right.
 

 

These images are printed on one side of light weight paper. These pages are not perforated. If you want to get the images out it should be easy enough. All you have to do is spread the book open as far as you can and score along the binding.  There is a frame around the majority of the images but there are a few that don’t.

 

 

I used Marco Raffine Coloring Pencils so I have no experience with markers in this book but I can tell you that the pencils left a bit of an outline on the back of the page. My suggestion is no matter what medium you use that you ALWAYS use a couple sheets of paper or heavy weight paper under the image that you are working on to make sure you don’t ruin the next image.

 

 

This really is an amazing book!! I enjoy just the mere fact of looking at it and just knowing that at any time I can pull it out and color in it. Selina has done an awesome job as she is a great artist. I was fortunate enough to receive Gothic Dark Fantasy in exchange for HONEST and UNBIASED review.

Outlite 240 Lumen Solar Rechargeable LED Camping Lantern

I really like this Outlite 240 Lumen Solar Rechargeable LED Camping Lantern. We camp a lot and love spending time outside. This is perfect for those trips or for even sitting on the back porch when I don’t want to turn the big light on. It is easy to work and is conducive to any age.

 

It came partially charged but I fully charged it before using it at all.Of course I let it die and once it ran out of energy it only took a couple of hours to charge using the 110W wall cable. This Lantern is made out of plastic which is good because it makes it lightweight and durable.

 

With this lantern you get in the box:

 

Lantern
110W wall cable
2 S hooks for hanging
Warranty card

 

It has 3 options to charge:

 

Charge through 110W cable
Solar Charging (built in)
3 AA batteries (not included)

 

You can use this to charge your phone by USB which is not included. My suggestion is that you use the cord that comes with your device. The port to plug in the charging socket and the USB port for charging your phone are both located on the back side of the Lantern. I suggest using the USB port sparing as you will prefer to have light over a phone, or at least I would.

 

The light is very bright as you can see in my video. It is clearly enough to cover a good area. This would be perfect for hanging in the tenting or if you have to walk away from the camp. This is also plenty of light to help supplement any light.

 

Perfect if you are hiking because you have use a carabineer and attach it to your pack and it will stay charged provided you have it fully charged before leaving. It is lightweight enough that you won’t feel any difference in weight with your pack.

 

Also this LED Lantern is perfect for any emergency situation that may arise at home. Should the power go out, rest assured that you have enough light to get you through a few hours and a way to recharge it with the solar plus, you can just insert the 3 AA batteries and not have to worry at all. I really love it and I was lucky enough to receive this Outlite 240 Lumen Solar Rechargeable LED Camping Lantern in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.

Capture the Color by Lynne McGee

I love This Capture the Color Book by Lynne McGee!! She is an Amazing Zentangle Inspired Artist. One thing I love about this book is you can expect the unexpected. One minute you are looking at a tangle and then next minute you could be looking at some flowers or a house.

 

This book measures 9″ inches x 6″ inches and is the perfect size for any purse or bag. I have taken this book with me to many appointments and it has kept me busy while waiting. Just throw some Coloring Pencils or Gel Pens in your purse also and you are good to go!!

 

There are 50 images in here for you to color and that is a lot!! Most books have a lot less. I actually own a few pocket edition books and they have nowhere near this many pages. I love how Lynne signs each and every page so when you are done you have your own colored and signed copy of her work.

 

These images are printed on one side of the page leaving the back side blank which I love!! These pages are not perforated but they will be easy enough to get out. All you have to do is push the book open as far as possible and score along the binding and the page should come right out.

 

This is lightweight paper so ALWAYS remember to put a couple sheets of paper under the page you are working on to protect the next image. My Gel Pens didn’t bleed through but being that it is lightweight paper I can only surmise that the wetter the ink the more apt it will be to bleed through.

 

I love this book and it will go to many more appointments with me. It is a great book for any Colorist. There is nothing too intricate in here that even a beginner can do. I was lucky enough to receive Capture the Color in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.

GL-Sail(TM) 48 Diamante Tipped Gel Pens

I love these GL-Sail(TM) 48 Diamante Tipped Gel Pens. I love to do intricate work and sometimes I have a hard time getting into the smaller areas with regular Gel Pens. Since I have gotten these I am not having that problem anymore.

 

These Gel Pens come with a nice sturdy Clear Plastic Case. It has 4 snaps to keep it closed so I know they are not going to fly out when I have to toss them in my purse to take them with me. I carry a pretty big purse so yes, I can put these along with a coloring book in my purse to go to appointments.

 

These are 0.8 – 1.0 mm Fine tipped Gel Pens. There are no repeats in this set. I really love the fact that I have lots of blues and greens! Plenty O’ pinks. There are even a good bit of purples and yellows. I love that there is even a peach color.

 

They come with:

 

12 Metallic
12 Glitter
12 Neon
12 Pastel

 

All 48 colors started right away and they give plenty of ink when using them. They are Bright and Vibrant colors also. I color a lot and love Gel Pens. Especially the Glitter ones.  I think using Gel Pens makes it easier to color and just plain prettier.

 

Really when seeing the price I am stunned because these are great Pens so it is my suggestion that you get them while they are still cheap. I like them a lot and will order more when these run out. I received these GL-Sail(TM) 48 Diamante Tipped Gel Pens at a discount in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.

On Amazon for only 15.95!!!

Dandelion Dish Cloths

These Dandelion Dish Cloths are super nice and Absorbent. In the listing it says they are quick drying and it really is the truth. One towel will dry all your dishes without leaving any streaks or fibers on my dishes. These are really nice. I have used them, washed them and am now doing my review.

 

There are 5 towels in this set. They are a light green with white stripes and a really nice white stitched edge. These are well made. They are 19″ x 15″ and are a Bamboo, Microfiber and Polyester no shrink blend and they didn’t shrink in the dryer. Because they are bamboo they are less likely to have an odor.

 

I knew Bamboo was recyclable and have seemed it made into other cloths before but I honestly never thought I’d own one. It is really silky and soft. Being that these are also Microfiber towels they will probably work very well to clean windows without getting streaks or leaving fabric behind.

 

It is recommended that you never use bleach or fabric softener with these. Also to not iron them or use in water above 60 degrees. Now when drying, because I was unsure, I just dried them on medium heat until they were dry. I think these are great and I was fortunate enough to receive these Dandelion Dish Cloths in exchange for HONEST and UNBIASED review.

 

Fanciful Fashions by Marjorie Sarnat

I love this Fanciful Fashions Book!!! I have several books by Marjorie Sarnot. This is the second edition of this book and it has 49 images in it. It has 34 of the original images plus 15 brand new ones!!

 

This is a fashion themed book and has a lot of semi intricate and intricate collages of clothes, shoes, hats and such. She has taken fashion to a whole new level. Her artwork is impeccable and captivating.

 

Each collage on the page follows a theme. Some of the themes you just have to figure out what they are. It may be the type of shirt, hat, shoe, or it could be that fact that they are purses, shoes, bows or even maybe the design. It’s an amazing book either way.

 
For example:

 

Cats Theme
Pampered Pet Theme
Owls Theme
Western Theme
Bows Theme
Hearts Theme

 

I love how some of the borders are more than just plain black lines. She loves to create unique and embellished designs. Not only in the scenery but in the page as a whole. She really gives me something to look forward to when I see that a new book is out.

 

This is not a Creative Haven book but a Sky Horse Publishing book.  This is a great book for all Colorist!! I have several other books by Marjorie Sarnat. Cats (Creative Haven), Dazzling Dogs (Creative Haven), Owls (Creative Haven), Pampered Pets, (Sky Horse Publishing) and I am anxiously waiting for Fanciful Foxes (Creative Haven).

 

These images are printed on bright white paper and they are single sided, leaving the back blank. This is some good medium weight paper. These pages are perforated. My brand of Gel Pens didn’t bleed through but I will say that I ALWAYS put paper or card stock under the image I am working on.

 

I won’t risk ruining the next image. I think the more wet the medium is the more likely it will be to bleed through. This really is a must have book for anyone who likes Marjorie Sarnats books. I know I personally can’t wait to start coloring the next amazing image. This really is an awesome book and I was fortune enough to receive Fanciful Fashions in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.

5 Pairs Baby Toddler Anti Slip Skid Socks

This set of 5 Baby Toddler Anti Skid Socks is really cute!!  These are for age 1-3 year olds with a foot size 3.5 to 4.7 and meant for toddlers who walk or babies learning to walk. They need to fit well on the foot to make sure there are no accidents.

 

They came in 5 different colors and designs. I got some are boy and some are girl designs. The Panda and the Tugboat both have lace around the top where the foot slides in. Other than the tugboat all these socks can be used for girls.

 

The socks are a little over 5 inches long and they have non-skid bottoms. They are meant to be worn without shoes. These are great for running around the house or going out on the town.

 

The Designs on all of them are really cute. I received:

 

Tugboat
Panda
Bunny
Pink Frog
Yellow Frog

 

The elastic around the ankles is strong and is great for keeping the slippers/socks on. They are a very soft and the kids seem to like them a lot. I have observed them on several occasions wearing them. These are great quality and very well made.

 

These are some really great socks and I received these 5 pairs of Baby Toddler Anti Skid Socks in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.

 

 

My Color Companion by Maria Wedel

My Color Companion by Maria Wedel is an amazing book to have to keep track of all your different mediums. I have just touched the surface on what I plan to log into this book.  Sometimes I get so frustrated because I have put down the wrong color and they just don’t coordinate.

 

With this Coloring Companion I can log all my Coloring Pencils, Gel Pens, and Markers and know exactly what that color looks like before I lay it to my image.  If the Pencils or Markers are numbered they can be logged by numbers or by colors. They choice is yours.

 

There are 30 templates and each template is repeated 4 times. That is 120 templates!!!  This is perfect for Colored Pencils, Gel Pens, Markers, Fine Liners or anything you color with.

 
These pages are not perforated but if you really want to get one out just score it along the binding and pull it out there. Since there are so many pages you may have issues with getting the book to lay flat on each page but all you need to do is open the book and bend it in half. I literally open it opposite of what it is supposed it to and put it on my table and applied a little pressure and then it stayed open.

 

 

I used my Raffine Colored Pencils and Touch Five alcohol based markers. This is light weight paper and my Touch Five Markers did bleed through. Make sure to use a piece cardstock under the template you are working on with any really wet medium.  Also know the next index might be ruined.

 

I love this book and am so happy I was lucky enough to review it. I received My Color Companion in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.  I have added the Youtube Video of my review and the link the the Pocket Version of this book so you can have it on the go too!! Mine is invaluable!!

Unisex US American Flag Winter Infinity Scarf

I really love this Unisex American Flag Infinity Scarf. It is a warm weather scarf so this is something you will want to wear during the fall or winter seasons.  I’m a Veteran and I am so proud to have this scarf and can’t wait until it gets cooler so I can wear it.
 

 

It is 55″ inches x 12″ inches which means it is a very good size. It hangs nicely if you want to just let it hang in the front but if it’s very cold and you want to twist it is plenty big enough to get it twisted and make a great scarf for covering your neck and even the lower part of your mouth if you wish.

 

The colors in this scarf are very bright and vibrant. There is nothing at all dull about it. It is sure to stand out in a crowd. This is knitted wool but it is soft and not at all itchy. Some people find that wool can be itchy but I don’t think this is at all.

 

Since making the video the listing seems to have been updated. When caring for the scarf you will want to wash this in cold water and just lay it out to dry to. Don’t leave it in direct sunlight either. If you are leaving it outside to dry try to find some shade.

 

I really love this American Flag scarf and I can’t wait to be able to wear it. I was lucky enough to receive this Unisex American Flag Infinity Scarf in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.

 

The Masters of Fashion Illustration by Wendy Piersall

The Master of Fashion Illustration is an Amazing that is full of some Amazing work. It is a Fashion based book that shows the work of 5 Artists that are teeming with life, even today.  She honors these Artists by hand drawing these images in their likeness. The Artists are George Wolfe Plank, George Barbier, Helen Dryden, Frank Leyendecker and Erte.

 

 

The images are from the Art Nouveau and Art Deco area which range from 1890 to 1930. The oldest date in the book is 1911. They are Delicate, Timeless and have a very Classic feel. I love images like these. Wendy usually does Mandalas so this is a “Out of the Box” experience for her but she has really done a beautiful job at it.

 

 

This book is 11″ x 8.5 ” and there are 30 images in this book. They are full of carefully drawn details. This is a book that everyone can color. None of them are so intricate that even a beginner can’t do them. My motto is that you set your own limits. I am not the best colorist but there is nothing in here that I would shy away from.

 

 

All of these pages have boarders around them which is great! It gives them a definite stopping point to each image and makes them easy to get out since these pages are not perforated. This is light weight paper so make sure to always put a couple sheets of paper, card stock or heavyweight paper under the page you’re working on so you don’t ruin the next image.

 

 

 

This is my 4th book of Wendy’s and although I am used to her Mandalas I absolutely love it. I love intricate work!! It helps me to focus and block out all the craziness around me! I have PTSD and I suffered for so long from symptoms like anxiety until a friend told me about coloring. As soon as I started I was hooked!!

 

 

Wendy has an AMAZING talent for drawing! This book is crying out for you to put color to the images. I am so happy I got it because I can put it with my Fashion collection. I have to say that out of my Fashion Coloring Books, that this is one of my favorites. I was lucky enough to receive Masters of Fashion Illustration in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.

The Big Beautiful Adult Coloring Book by Hannah Davies

This Big Beautiful Coloring Book is an Amazing Find!! I love the large pages and colored backgrounds. I am a lover of all books. I have been in love with Hannah’s books for a while and when I saw this one I knew I had to have it!!

 

 
The book measures about 16″ inches x 12″ inches and it is a very big book. There are 23 images in the book that will keep you busy for a while. The pages are either outlined in color or have a colored background. Either way it is pretty awesome.

 

This book is full of lots of detail but there is nothing intricate about it. This is a MUST HAVE for EVERYONE!!! It is perfect for Beginners, Teens, Kids, and Experienced. You name it!! I love this book to no end and will use it to decorate a portion of my new office space.

 

The pages are perforated so they are super easy to get out. This is High Quality Heavy weight paper. I used Alcohol based markers and they did not bleed through although there are a couple spots where I blended heavily and those spots did come through but I always make sure to use paper under all images I work on no matter the paper quality.

 

Hannah Davies is fulfilling her lifelong dream by being an Artist. Not only an Award-Winning Illustrator but also a freelance textile designer also. She creates items such as greeting cards, ceramics, textiles, gift packaging, and coloring books with a variety of illustrations and patterns. She does her Illustration from her Seaside home in Wales.

 

Amazingly enough I still have images I need to color. I received this Big Beautiful Adult Coloring Book in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.

Hapo 80 count Color Set Touch Five Dual Tip Markers

These Touch Five Markers are super nice. I color because I have PTSD and find it very relaxing. I have been looking for a large set of good markers for a long time and that’s when I came across these Hapo 80 count Color Set Touch Five Dual Tip Markers.

 

I have to say that I have tried many dual tip markers and have found very few that actually match the color on the cap. These are pretty much on point. There are 80 markers and each marker has a fine tip and a chisel tip. These are superb.

 

The fine tip is great for getting into small fine lines and it also does large areas great too. The chisel tip does large areas very well but if you are doing a large area and it comes to a small point you can use the very tip of the chisel to get into the small area.

 

The colors are great!!! These match the caps very well which is rare. It also comes with a clear pen and a fine line black pen. I think the black pen is for drawing but I am not sure what the clear pen is for.

 

There are plenty of pinks, greens and blues but not many reds or yellows. There are even a decent amount of purples and browns and even some neutral skin type colors but as with all markers like these there are plenty of grey to choose from.

 

Being that there are 80 markers the bag could use some improvement. I would love to have had a hard case as I had to use paper to separate all the markers to put them in order. My son and I put them in numerical order which is perfect!!

 

I also used a book to code the colors so I can see them all before even popping the cap to use them. They go on very smooth with no skipping or jumping and when we were coding them my son even accidently left the cap off one for a while and it didn’t dry out.

 

I’m very impressed with these because I have to say these are the very first set I have gotten that are totally true to color, go on smooth and do not create drag lines. These are perfect for my coloring needs as I not only do intricate images but also images with wide open spaces. I was fortunate enough to receive these Hapo 80 count Color Set Touch Five Dual Tip Markers in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED Review.

OFKP® Foldable Tri-fold Wireless Ultra-Slim Bluetooth 3.0 Keyboard

This OFKP® Foldable Keyboard is super nice. My 16 year is really into technology and I thought this would be something great to get for him since he is always texting and on websites on his phone.

 

 
My son has a LG G Vista and this is fully compatible with his phone. This keyboard is a foldable Bluetooth 3.0 wireless keyboard and is small size and really easy to pull in and out of any pocket or any backpack as it is a slim version.

 

 
This Tri-fold 3.0 Ultra-Slim Bluetooth Keyboard is made of Aircraft grade Aluminum. It is super strong and repels heat. It is very compact and light weight also.

 

 
Our ESYNiC foldable Bluetooth 3.0 Keyboard came with:

 
USB charging adapter
Bluetooth keyboard
Manual

 

 
It is super easy to pair as all you have to do is hit 2 buttons and it automatically pairs to your phone. You just hit FN and CT and it goes into pairing mode. It has a built-in 210mAh lithium battery and it charges via USB. It holds a charge a long time. My son has only charged it once since getting it and he uses it a lot. It has 220 days of standby power and 80 straight hours of typing.

 

 
He uses it just like a regular keyboard when he is on sites like Minecraft or other places. It is a fairly quiet device although you can still hear it “clicking” when typing. It is easy to work with though. The buttons are large enough so that you are not struggling trying to type.

 

 
He really loves it and uses it all the time. I told him I should have kept it for myself and he laughed and said it was too late. It said it was supposed to come with a carrying case but out did not so that is why it got 4 stars instead of 5. We were fortunate enough to receive this OFKP® Foldable Keyboard is exchange for our HONEST and UNBIASED review.

Tropical Travel Patterns by Jaimie Horan (Adult Coloring Book)

Coloring is my way to relax and unwind. When I came across this Tropical Travel Patterns Adult Coloring Book I had to check it out. I have several Blue Star Coloring Books so I knew it would be a good quality book. I have to say that I was not let down. I was so excited when I got it that I immediately opened it up and started looking for the page I was going to start off with.

 

There are 32 images in this book but I consider the 1st page a colorable image also. These pictures really make me think about the next vacation I want to take and all the animals and flowers I may see while I’m doing it. There are lovely beach and ocean scenes, Hibiscus flowers and more, frogs, lizards, snakes, parrots, and more animals, I have to say that I love the turtle picture and the waterfall the most!! Most of these images are nice open spaces. There are a couple that have small spaces but nothing intricate.

 

Most of these images are centered but there are some full page images with borders around them. There are also some full page images that take up the whole page. If you want to get these images out for the most part it will be pretty simply because all you will have to do is push the binding open as much as possible and score along the binding. With the Full page images that take up the whole page you may lose a small portion of the image but nothing crucial to the image.

 

These images are printed on one side of the page leaving the back side blank. This is non-perforated lightweight paper. My Gel Pens didn’t bleed through but I always put a couple sheets of paper under the page I am working on just in case. I would hate to ruin the next image. If you are using marker they will bleed through. This book would be perfect for Crayons or Colored Pencils or any medium you want but just make sure to use the paper under the image you are working on.

 

This is the perfect book for EVERYONE!! Beginners and Experienced Colorist alike. I don’t always want to color intricate images. So, I need books with open spaces. That makes this a great book. There are a couple images with some smaller areas but nothing so intricate that you will need fineliners.

 

I really love this Tropical Travel Pattern Theme because it gives me plenty of flowers, animals and ideas. It gives me lots of areas to color and helps me to image my next vacation!! I was fortunate enough to receive this in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.

Rapahan Large Folding Laptop Desk, Aluminum and Beech

This Rapahan Large Folding Desk is Amazing and has helped me out so much!! I love to color and I get stuck on the couch sometimes because I am disabled. I used to have to sit there on my laptop or watch TV and be content with that but not anymore. I had to find a way to be able to color while stuck there when I came across this.

 

It is made of Aluminum and Beech although the top seems to be more of a veneer surface which is okay. It still looks great and does an excellent job!! It is a perfect coloring desk, serving tray, laptop desk or whatever you need it for. I use it for when I’m stuck on the couch and want to color but also for if I need to eat. I am able to get a full sized coloring book and pack of Gel Pens on it.

 

If you are using it for a Laptop Desk it is plenty big enough for a full sized 18″ laptop with plenty of space for a mouse. At its widest point it is about 23.5″inches W and the legs are over 10″. It comes up very high on me because I’m very short but it is really not a problem for me considering what I am using it for.

 

It is really easy to open and close the legs and the desk itself it super easy to fold up and store. I literally just fold it up and slide it between the couch and coffee table and get it out of the way. Honestly, I could probably slide it under my couch because I have high legs on my couch but I don’t. If you keep the box it comes in, it has a carrying handle on it so it will be simple to take anywhere you go. Although without the box, it is still simple to take.

 

I don’t have a lot of strength on my arms and love the fact that this is lightweight and easy to use. That is one of the reasons I chose it. I was afraid of getting a wooden one and then not being able to fully use when I needed to. I love this one though and it is a great portable table!! I was fortunate enough to receive this Rapahan Large Folding Desk in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.

 

 

AmazaPens Gel Pens – 60 Value Pack, 40% More Ink than Other Sets

These AmazaPens really are some Great Gel Pens. I love this 60 Pack!! When I got this I was super happy that I got 36 Glitter Gel Pens!! I love that they have 40% more ink than other Gel Pens. That means I can color more books!!

 

I went right into checking out all the colors and doing my color scheme and started my page!! Yes, I was very excited!!

 

The color choices in here are perfect for what I was looking for!! All the colors are so bright and vibrant. I have tried many Gel Pens and I have to say that these are at the TOP of my list!! I have bought other AmazaPens and was so excited to get this set!!

 

With this set you get:

24 Glitter (2 sets of 12)
12 Fluoro (Neon Glitter)
7 Pastel
5 Neon
10 Metallic
2 Black

 

I consider the Fluoro to be the Neon Glitter which I love!! The Regular Glitter is a little darker than the Fluoro and that is what makes them stand out very well and mix when coloring. They both shine and sparkle like crazy! I love simmer!

 

The ink goes on smooth and they started right away but I will tell you that the orange Glitter needed some priming. It was not an issue because after they started they went on smooth.

 

With Glitter Gel Pens sometimes they do have problems because it is glitter mixed with ink and it can clog up near the tip. If you run into this issue just take the ink out of the pen and run it under some hot water but make sure it is TOTALLY DRY before putting it back in pen. I didn’t have that issue with these though.

 

These write very well and don’t skip or jump. It was super easy to color and that is important to me. The ink dries pretty quickly but they do need just a moment to dry. I am learning to blend Gel Pens so this comes in handy for me because I need a moment to blend.

 

They come in a white box then a plastic box with plastic trays. I personally will put them in a different storage bin. I do like the white box they come in though and I can take them out of the plastic container and just lay the trays in the white AmazaPens box. I really love these and I will continue to buy them as I have bought them before! I received these Awesome AmazaPens at a discount in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.

Dainayw Metallic Marker Pens, Set of 10 Colors

These Dainayw Metallic Marker Pens are pretty cool. I have never owned a set of Metallic pens much less brush tips. I think had I used a better quality paper I would have gotten a better effect but I still got a decent glow with the plain printer paper.

 

You get 10 brush tip pens with this set in a nice sturdy plastic case that is great for storing and carrying your marker pans anywhere. These will be great for working on glass, making cards, scrapbooking, or pretty much any DIY project you want. I am about to decorate an office and these are going to be perfect for making a couple of vases for my tables or bookshelves.

 

These colors are very bright and vibrant and I love how they really shine even on just regular paper. These are water based ink so they are going to absorb into regular paper more than into card stock that is why they don’t shine as much. I really like the fact that they are water based because if I make a mess on myself or on my desk or area I am using it will easily clean up. Also if I am working on glass if I am not happy I can just wipe it off before it dries.

 

I think these make a really great addition to my art collection. The ink flows great and it has a great tip that is easy to work with. I think I will use them more for art than coloring though although I will continue to try to perfect the craft. I was lucky enough to receive these Dainayw Metallic Color Pens in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.

 

 

Dimples Excel 550lb Survival Paracord Keychains with Carabineers (2 Pack)

Just in time for Fathers Day!!

 

 

These are some really nice Dimples Excel Premium Paracord Keychains with Carabineers.  You get 2 for the price of 1 and really when you are buying quality like this it is a great deal. These are handmade Keychains using 550 lb paracord. Each of these is 6″ inches long.

 

 

Now I know you are thinking 6″ inches is big for a keychain. I think of it like this. Paracord can be used in any survival and emergency situation as well as the carabineer. 6″ inches is a small price to pay for the comfort of knowing you have that extra measure of preparedness. Each of these keychains holds 4 foot of paracord!! That is a good bit and there is a lot you can do with it.

 
These would be great for hikers and campers but also for everyday use. I bought them for my teenagers because we always believe in being prepared. I also know they will use the keychains daily and if needed, they will know how to use the paracord. If you ever need to open up your keychain on the end you will find a glued dot. Just use a knife or whatever you have handy and scrape that off and start unraveling your paracord.

 
There are 6 different sets to choose from with a multitude of colors ranging from pink and blue to green and brown. I personally got the yellow and grey for my boys. One of the great things about these keychains is that there is a Dimples Excel Lifetime Warranty but I honestly don’t see how or why you would every need it. I received these Dimples Excel Paracord Keychains in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.

Senlips 2x18W Cree LED Spot Light / Fog Lights / Offroad Light

Great Fathers Days Present!

 

These 18W SenLips LED Cree Lights are Great! We have been looking to replace his fog light because they were dim but now they just aren’t anymore. My husband put these on his 2005 Jeep Wrangler X and they are really bright! These come with everything you need to install with the exception of a wiring harness.

 

We started looking at the price of the other lights and were astounded by them. They were all so expensive. But when we saw these we knew we had to try these. Now when we go out at night, when it’s foggy or on the back roads we can see as clearly as if it were daytime. I cannot believe the difference these make.

 

These came packaged in foam inside of a brown box with the mounting brackets and hardware. Everything fit and installed perfectly on my husband’s Jeep Wrangler. The housing is Diecast Aluminum which is super sturdy and will withstand all kind of weather. You don’t have to worry about water getting into your lights as they are rated IP 67 waterproof which means Ingress Protection.

 

These are super nice and my husband loves love. They are the perfect lights for Off Road or Fog. I am 100% satisfied and am thinking about buying a pair to put up by the windshield. This really is a NO RISK purchase because normally if something is going to happen it’s going to be within the 1st year and there is a 12 Month Warranty so you are covered!! I received these 18W SenLips LED Cree Lights  in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.

Hello and Welcome

X-lighting Flameless LED Candles 3 Battery Operated Pillar Electric Candles with Multi Function Remote

 

I have always found candles to be very relaxing and calming but I hate that I have to worry about them burning something or have to buy the large candle in the canisters. I really hate the smell of them when you blow them out and the smoke is awful.

 

 
I really like these X-lighting LED remote control Electronic Candles as I can control them from up to 20 feet away. I love that I can turn them on from all the way on the other side of the room and start the beautiful glow of the candles as long as I have them switched on. I want to go ahead and tell you that these are plastic and NOT wax so you don’t have to worry about any of that awful smell or smoke.

 

 
With this set you get:
 

Remote that takes a CR2032 button battery (included)
3″ inch Candle
4.5″ inch Candle
6″ inch Candle

 

 

Each of these candles takes 3 AAA batteries that are not included. This remote control is super easy to work. There are 18 buttons but please DO NOT let that intimidate you as 12 of those buttons are for choosing a single color for your candles. There is also a Multi Color button which will make it cycle through all the colors.

 

 

Then there is a 4 and 8 hour timer so you can set these to turn off. The Mode button simply helps you to switch between all these and then the On/Off switch. These are PERFECT for Indoor and Outdoor use and setting a GREAT mood for any Occasion!!

 

 
I have to say that small one kind of does its own thing when it comes to lighting. It is never quite right. It does match when it comes to some colors but not on others. Doesn’t matter because I will just sit this one on the other side of the room. My box did arrive damaged and the seller offered to send another but I told him I was fine because it was just that one.

 

 
I got these because I am setting up an Office/Art/Relaxation Room for myself and needed something to help set a relaxing mood with any scent. I received these X-lighting Flameless Electric Candles in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.
