Tumbler Set – Stainless Steel – Set of 4


This tumbler set is great. I'm not sure that it is stainless steel though. I've been told that a magnet won't stick to stainless steel and it does stick to these tumblers so that is still up in the air.

That said, they do work well at keeping hot drinks warm and cold drinks cool. For this reason alone I do like these tumblers. They are not glass or plastic so they will not break easy which is another plus. All in all I do like these tumblers because with children in the house, we all know that glass and plastic break. I think it's safe to say that I will be using these for quite a while.

You can get this set for yourself on Amazon here.

All in all I really do like these tumblers. I just wish I knew if they were really stainless steel or not. It would help to know if acidic drinks are going to stain the metal or not.

Have a great day!

Camo Backpack


This Camo Backpack is wonderful. It has 2 pockets on the front and the main compartment which is huge. The shoulder straps come unclipped for fast removal and they clip at the chest for better carrying balance.

Camo Backpack http://fave.co/2bvixin

The 2 pockets on the front are half the size of the backpack each and the zippers all work well. This bag will carry anything you might need for a day trip or a weekend trip. The back has a hard removable part so that nothing will be able to poke you through the backpack.

You can get this backpack on Amazon at Camo Backpack

On the top of the backpack there is also a handle if you don't want to wear it on your back. There are also 2 velcro spots on either side of the handle that could be used for a camel pack or even headphones. There are 2 loops at the same spots that could be used to attach something like a bluetooth speaker or keys or something else. There are so many things this backpack could be used for.

This backpack is also big enough to hold a laptop. There is plenty of room inside for a laptop and one's clothes or anything else you may need or want to carry in it. I think probably the best thing about this backpack though, would be that it's water resistant! That means if it gets wet, what's inside the backpack should stay dry. How awesome is that?

Have a great day!

5 Piece Fillet Set


This fillet set if a wonderful and useful addition to my fishing gear. There are 5 pieces which consist of a cutting board, a knife sharpener, a 13", 11", and 10" knives.

Fillet set http://fave.co/2buYO7d

Open fillet http://fave.co/2buYO7d

To test this kit out, I used it in the kitchen and the knives are very sharp. So, now I can't wait to get it out at the lake on our next camping trip. The carry case it comes in is not very good but still it should last for a while. Plus, with this in my camping gear, it will be nice to have so I don't have to remember to grab sharp knives when we do go camping.

Fillet Set http://fave.co/2buYO7d

This set is available on Amazon at 5 Piece Fillet Set. This set will be used a lot over the next years.

Beautiful Dress/Shirt


This "dress" is beautiful. Why the quotes around dress? Well I'm glad you asked. The sizing on this "dress" runs very small. I bought this for my daughter who is a big girl. She normally wears a large or xtra large. I ordered this in a 2X so that she would have a little room in it. HaHa, surprise was on us!

Dress http://fave.co/2buXvVK

As you can see, this is not a dress...lol. It's a shirt! It's a very low cut shirt. She has a tank top on underneath the.

However, other than the size issue, this shirt is beautiful and so soft. I don't think this material would irritate even the most sensitive of skin. The material is very stretchy so it has a lot of give and hugs the body pretty tightly. But most definitely not a dress.

Dress http://fave.co/2buXvVK

This is sold on Amazon at http://amzn.to/29YsZh5 and for the price is a good deal if you are looking for a nice shirt, but probably not a dress, unless you order 3 or 4 sizes bigger than what you need.

Have a great day!

Straws


I absolutely love anything that helps us to have less trash and these straws do just that.

Stainless Steel Straws http://fave.co/2buXb9E

I don't know about you, but I love to use a straw when I drink. I hated that after using the straw it usually went in the garbage. With these stainless steel straws they don't go in the garbage. After you use them, you wash them and use them again and again.

These straws come in 3 different sizes in the same package. They are send 2 cleaning brushes for the 3 different sizes. Plus as a bonus you also get a 2 e-books which contain recipes for drinks you can use the straws with and a nice bag to keep them together in.

Tarp – 24″ x 40″


This tarp is huge! It has reinforced edging and is tear resistant.

Tarp http://fave.co/2bBam5A

This tarp is sold on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/Maxam-SPTARP10-24-All-Purpose-Tarp/dp/B00JRO8XNQ/ref=sr_1_1?m=A2D4DW0NZBLRX4&s=merchant-items&ie=UTF8&qid=1470245875&sr=1-1&keywords=B00JRO8XNQ.

This tarp is multipurpose and can be used for just about anything. It's weather resistant with a coating to help it deal with the weather better than most tarps will. The corners are reinforced with plastic which will help with wear and tear as well.

Tarp http://fave.co/2bBam5A

It could be used for just about anything. This winter Aarron plans on using as a pool cover to make sure the water stays good for next summer. That or the other thought is to put it up between the house and our trailer to make a big shaded area.

Have a great day!

Portable Battery Charger


The Ihome portable battery charger was designed with the Iphone, Ipad, and Ipod in mind, but it will work with just about any phone. These portable battery chargers are really nice to have if you're out of the house a lot. We all know how important it is to have a working cell phone when you're out and about.

Portable Battery Charger http://fave.co/2bqwP5j

If you're anything like me, you use your phone for everything. My battery is constantly almost dead. This power bank has made life simpler. I can charge my phone on the go whenever I need to. My Husband, Aarron and I used to play a game on our phones where you had to leave the house to play (sort of like Pokemon Go) and these chargers are wonderful for this. When your battery gets low just plug it in and keep going.

Portable Battery Charger http://fave.co/2bqwP5j

These chargers are very easy to use and to charge. You just plug it in, turn it on, and you're ready to go. I love the ease of how these work. To charge them, you turn the cord around and plug it in to a USB port and let it charge. So easy!

These portable battery chargers are sold on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/iHome-Executive-Portable-Battery-Colors/dp/B01DCN3B98?ie=UTF8&*Version*=1&*entries*=0

Stonetec Sauce Pan


This Stonetec Sauce pan is nonstick because of the granite/ceramic coating which is better than the teflon coating. The teflon coating has a tendency to come off as you cook putting this coating in your food. EWWW! Not good.

Ceramic Pot http://fave.co/2bpzxbf

The coating on this pan is not supposed to come off though they still recommend using silicone, plastic or wood utensils in the sauce pan. I'm not sure why if the coating isn't supposed to come off. However, I will do so just to make sure it stays usable.

The handle is high temp safe which means you can put this pan in the oven too. The lid is glass with a notch in it for draining grease or liquid. It doesn't specifically say so, but I don't think the lid can go in the oven, just the pan itself.

Ceramic Pot http://fave.co/2bpzxbf

You can get it on Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01CZSL0AS

This is a green pan. It has no lead, no cadmium, and no PFOA. The coating is from "earthy stone minerals" so there isn't supposed to be any chemicals in this pan which is nice. All in all I give this sauce pan a 5 star review. It does what it says it will and works well at it.

Have a great day!

Tea Infuser – Stainless Steel


This Stainless Steel Tea Infuser keeps the leaves in the strainer where they belong, not in your cup of tea.

Tea Infuser http://fave.co/2btvqOE

This infuser sits on the edge of your cup to steep. None of the leaves end up in your tea. The top has silicone rings around it, one blue the other red. Kinda gives it a pop of color which is nice. For cleaning you just empty the tea leaves, and wash. Easy. I love easy!

Tea infuser http://fave.co/2btvqOE

This tea infuser is sold on Amazon if you want one. You can get it at https://www.amazon.com/Infuser-Strainer-Premium-Stainless-Favorite/dp/B01DV56WNE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1470144998&sr=8-1&keywords=tea+infuser

I love to have a good cup of tea after a long day and this makes it so easy. I have never liked the tea bags (makes the tea taste funny if you ask me) so the infuser, in my opinion, is the way to go. Of course, I know for some, the tea bag is the way to go. It's a personal preference I guess.

The stainless steel make of this item makes it easy to clean as long as you empty it right away. Just wipe it out with a little soap and water, or throw it in the dishwasher and it's clean. The fact that it sits on the edge of the cup ensures that it won't fall all the way in. This means no burning your hands trying to get it out of a hot cup of water.

All in all I would give this product a 5 star review. It works as it's supposed to and does what it should do with no issues that I found.

Have a great day!

Sleeping Bag by Egoz


This sleeping bag is wonderful. I can't wait to go camping now so that I can really try it out. It comes in a bag to make it very easy to carry with you wherever you will be camping or sleeping at.

Sleeping Bag http://fave.co/2bptxz8

This sleeping bag is sold on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00Q17BBUE?m=AMYF10K3PC08D&ref_=v_sp_widget_detail_page. I used this to cover myself last night just to see how warm it was and I couldn't stay under it. It will definitely keep a person warm on a chilly night in the woods or the mountains.

This bag is rated to temperatures of 30F. For those who use celsius as a measurement that is just below freezing. So this bag should be wonderful for almost any climate. Of course those who get snow in the winter time probably don't do much camping then. Or at least I know I wouldn't.

Sleeping Bag http://fave.co/2bptxz8

This sleeping bag has a hooded top on it as well. There is a drawstring so that you can draw it snug around your head for added warmth. I've never had one like this so I am pretty excited about that.

It was pretty easy to get in and out of the carry bag. I don't know about you, but usually once I take something out of the bag, it will never go back in. Oh by the way, did I mention the carry bag also has a sling on it to make it easier to carry.

All in all, I would give this a five star review because the bag is warm and appears to be made well.

Have a great day!

Changing Pads – Set of Three


These changing pads are waterproof and easy to care for. They can go in the washer and dryer with the rest of baby's clothes.

Changing Pad http://fave.co/2bg4U8f

I hadn't heard of using bamboo for clothing until just recently. These changing pads are made from bamboo and polyester. The bamboo helps to keep them germ free. I don't know exactly how this works, something in the bamboo I would think. However, it is very soft. I know soft is not something you would think of when you think of bamboo. At least I know I wouldn't but they are.

Changing Pad http://fave.co/2bg4U8f

These changing pads are sold on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/Waterproof-Baby-Changing-Liner-Antibacterial/dp/B01HYDH5GW. They really aren't that expensive either.

I can see that these pads would not irritate baby's skin because they are so soft. The color is nice too. It's a beige color that is really light so it shouldn't hold heat if you use it outdoors which is nice, especially here in Southern Arizona.

Have a great day!
