Blood Sugar Supplement helps!

This is a review of:

Manage Blood Sugar Natural Remedy (BM-10)from BestMade Natural Products.

I am a type 2 diabetic and have been struggling of late with keeping my sugars under control. My a1c score has been concerning and my doctor is telling me that if it isn’t under control, we may have to try other ways to manage it, so when I saw this product and that the merchant was willing to provide it in exchange for a review, I jumped at it.  It is a liquid that uses a dropper, and tastes HORRIBLE.  However, they warned me about that and suggested that I add about 10 drops to a water bottle and sip it throughout the day.  You cannot taste it in water, at least not in the 16 oz or 32 oz bottles I use, and my daily readings have been better in the two weeks I’ve been using the supplement.  Hopefully that will be evident in my A1C scores when I visit the doctor next month

I received this supplement mentioned above in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

Toys for my new toy!

I’ve only recently gotten my first GoPro (my husband has had one for awhile), and while neither of us are adventurous or athletic, we both love taking photos and videos and love to record our pets and our road trips. These cameras allow us to do so without worrying about packing an extensive camera bag or collection. I love these wrist straps by MuvePro because I keep them in our glove box, and when we hop out of the car, I can have my camera on my wrist which is easily accessible. I don’t do a lot of boating, so I cannot imagine using the floating band for that, but any time I am near the water, I wear it because frankly, I am clumsy, and if anything I am liable to simply trip or drop it in the ocean, never to be seen again. Hopefully with this on my wrist it won’t go flying, but if it does, the floater should keep it visible (hopefully a better swimmer than I will grab it for me) or else it will remain visible as it floats out to sea :P.

You can find these straps here.

You can see my new action camera (GoPro clone) here.

I received both of the products mentioned above in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Enzo Memory Foam Travel Pillow

I am not a good traveler, I tend to fall asleep in the car (only when I’m in the passenger seat!), but my head will fall forward and I’ll have a sore neck, so then I’ll be cranky. This neck pillow solves that in so many ways. First of all, it fits perfectly around my neck and even has a snap closure to keep it in place. This is made of memory foam so once it shapes to my neck, it is there, but not obviously there. I also get really warm easily, and during warmer weather, I wouldn’t use something like this because I would hate if my neck got too hot, but this has properties that provide a cooling sensation. I like the feel of the fabric covering, the color is vibrant, and it helps keep my neck from getting sore while traveling. This would also work great on the rare occasions that I travel by plane, because although it is full size when out of it’s carry bag, it squeezes into a much smaller size so that I don’t have to worry about carrying around a big pillow in addition to other bags. Very convenient!

Great Quality Vitamin D3 and it’s Organic!

My doctor prescribed Vitamin D3 for me about a year ago to aid in treating and controlling my Type 2 Diabetes. I take it in conjunction with my metformin (because Type 2 isn’t a lack of insulin, it is the body’s inability to absorb the insulin that is present in sufficient quantity to control the sugar). Vitamin D3 aids the body in the absorption of insulin, thereby helping to control the diabetes and hopefully, eventually, healing the body enough to no longer be diabetic. I haven’t had or been taking this brand very long, but there are several things about it that I like. The size of the pill is standard for Vitamin D3, but I really like that it is such a high potency (I must take at ‘least’ 3000 IU a day and this is 5000 IU which is perfectly acceptable. I don’t know if it really helps me or not, but my Doctor wants me to take it and if I can find an organic version like this, then that is one more thing that I can do for my health.

I need all the help I can to eat right! Review of SmartPlanet’s Portion Perfect Snack container.

NEW! Portion Perfect Snack Perfect On The Go

OK, so I am not the world’s healthiest eater, and I love junk food. Just like the old commercial used to say “I can’t eat just one”, but with some things, if I could restrict myself to one portion or one cup I can maintain and be a bit healthier.  This container is PERFECT for helping me to do this.  I used to buy a bag of chips or a can of nuts, or even a bag of M&Ms to have in/on my desk at my office.  If I was having a bad day *BOOM* the whole thing would be gone.  But this perfect little portion control container has helped me curb stress eating a little bit (there are still vending machines around the corner from my office).  I usually put one completely bad for me snack in one of the compartment (chips/Fritos/candy), and the other two hold carrot sticks/jicama sticks (my current favorite), and the final one holds about 1/2 a cup of almonds or pecans (or whichever nut is currently my favorite).  This is all I bring to work, so I am forced to ration myself (I usually leave my coins in my husbands coin bowl (so he can cash them in at Coin-Star for an Amazon gift card).

I imagine this would be great for folks with small children, but I think it is perfect for me.  Here is the link to their website:

Really enjoying these earphones! by Audiosharp

These earphones are really nice quality.  The package that they come in is the first indication in my opinion of the quality of an item, and the packaging is as good as it gets.  A nice box, nice enough for gifting, these In Ear Headphones are displayed attractively inside, and also showcased is the leather case for holding the earphones as well as the extra ear buds.  This is not a hands free phone device, nor is it Bluetooth, instead, it is a quality little headset for listening to your tune.  All the bits and pieces on it are metal including the earpieces themselves, and the audio plug is 24 K gold plated.  Sound quality is amazing right out of the box, but it also comes with a CD of music and noise to help condition the headphones, because apparently the more you use these, the better they sound, kind of like breaking in a new pair of shoes.  These sounded so good to me out of the box that I cannot imagine them sounding better.  These look nice and help me to enjoy my music! It just really needs to be stressed again that these do not have a microphone and aren’t meant to be used as a hands free phone device.  No Bluetooth, only pure music enjoyment!

Easy to install shower head attachment – 4/5 stars

First of all, this was fairly easy to install. I am usually the one in my house that installs things like this (or builds the furniture that needs to be assembled), provided they come with clear instructions. This fact is why this product did not get 5 stars. It came with absolutely no instruction manuals. But since I have installed products like this before, I was able to figure it out pretty quickly. The slide bar is stainless steel which should prevent it from rusting and the coating overall is chrome in appearance. The hose nuts were able to be hand-tightened, so I didn’t need to borrow any of my husband’s tools, and the fact that this has a Life-time Warranty lets me know that this company stands behind their product. We have horrible water pressure in our house, but with this installed, it feels great, and is much better than our former shower head.

I received a complimentary sample of this product in exchange for review from Giveaway Service website. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. Reference ID: pm69fe9173086cb3761312feb26edacf6e Since it was a sample for review, they may have sent one that didn’t contain instructions because of this, so I hope that a purchasing customer would receive instructions.
