Western Lamp Gama Sonic Weston Series Lamp #review donnahup

I love the small town I live in. We’re a farming community and it’s very quiet around here. Sometimes it’s almost too quiet like when I come home real late.  There are no street lights and it’s hard to find the lock when it’s dark outside.  I had been wanting to install a light and really didn’t know where to start.

We chose the Weston Series from the Gama Sonic website and I love it!

The Weston series post light fitter is the perfect way to accent your garden, while bringing in illumination at night.  

Features:

  • Elegant and Energy Efficient way to light your way
  • Motion Sensor for added security
  • 6 Super-Bright LED Bulbs are Powered by the Built-In, Solar-Powered Batteries
  • Automatically turns on and off, however, there is also a manual on/off switch for your convenience
  • Solar lamp lights have a durable, rust-resistant frame can be bolted down (bolts included)

My sweet hubby installed it for me, but don’t let the tool box fool you. I think he just likes being able to take it out.  It was very easy to install and took him less than 10 minutes.

I just love the way that it looks with the house.  It is solar charged and comes on automatically when the sun goes down.  It’s great that I don’t need to remember to turn it on (or off).

It gives off quite a bit of light which is really great for when I get home after sunset. It makes it much easier to find my keys and get the door unlocked.

Firmoo.com Online Optical Store #review donnahup

Firmoo.com is the world’s most popular online eyeglasses store. Years of expertise in optical industry enable Firmoo.com to offer varieties of prescription eyewear to the consuming public in high quality yet at extremely affordable prices.

I have to wear glasses or I can’t see. At all.  Glasses can really be expensive so I was excited to find Firmoo.com Online Optical Store.  They had fantastic prices on the frames!  You could even find frames under $20!

I chose these fun frames.

Firmoo.com Online Optical Store #review donnahup

I love the bright colors and they fit perfectly.  You can even upload a headshot of yourself to try on the glasses.

Firmoo.com Online Optical Store #review donnahup

The frames are high quality and they even came in a hard case (bonus!)  The only downside is it took a few weeks to get them in.  For the price and quality it was well worth the wait.

Ultimate Attack and Defend Foam Ball Shooter

Gravity-fed auto load, includes six soft foam balls that fire over 40 feet through the shield–that’s right, through the shield! Pull the soft foam hammer back, take aim and let go! Clear shield protects you from in-coming fire!

Hog wild Shield Popper 2

The Hog Wild Atomic Shield Popper that lets you protect yourself while shooting. The is great when you are in wars in the backyard because you can pop up to shoot someone and protect your face or chest.  It has a sweet rapid fire that I really like.  There is nothing that I do not like about this. I think it is easy for all ages. Even my little sister (age 6) liked it.  I think Moms should buy these for their kids because they are so much fun!

Michael Angelo’s Uncompromising Italian Frozen Foods

 

*I received Michael Angelo’s Meals to facilitate my review. All thoughts are 100% honest and my own.

My husband is a truck and has a huge appetite. I don’t know that the two go hand in hand, but I do know that when he comes to the house for home time he wants a delicious home cooked meal and Michael Angelo’s Uncompromising Italian Frozen Foods helped me with just that!  Some of you may be thinking I meant to say something else besides frozen foods, but I’m serious they taste like I slaved all day in the kitchen!  My husband ate over half the family size Meat Lasagna by himself!

michael-angelos-frozen-foods-lasagna-with-meat-sauce

Why leave the comfort of your home to enjoy restaurant quality Italian entrées? Instead, head to the local grocer’s frozen food aisle. There you’ll find a variety of Michael Angelo’s gourmet Italian meals you quickly and easily cook up in your own kitchen.

It is easy as 1-2-3 to make!

  1. Preheat oven.
  2. Cook.
  3. Enjoy.

My husband had no idea that it was not homemade. I’m pretty sure that’s because all of their meals are made without fillers, dyes or preservatives. They taste like homemade because their made fresh then frozen for a quality meal. Their goal has always been to create dishes that taste like they were made in a home cook’s kitchen. That can’t be done if you add preservatives, fillers or chemicals. In my opinion, they’ve reached that goal.

They have several different Italian Frozen Foods to choose from and they are all just as fresh!

Natural Relief for your Pets with Achy Paws Pet Mat

 

*I received an Achy Paws Pet Mat to facilitate my review. All thoughts are 100% honest and my own. 

Natural Relief for your Pets with Achy Paws Pet Mat

Achy Paws Pet Mat donnahup

 

Aging Dogs and Cats are naturally attracted to the Achy Paws™ Pet Mat for its unique Bamboo Charcoal Technology that provides self-warming properties for natural relief. It activates with their body temperature to bring restorative warmth to ease achy joints. Natural warmth helps increase blood circulation, soothe tired muscles, reduce soreness, and melt away discomfort. If your pet overheats, bamboo charcoal can also fluctuate according to your pets temperature to provide cooling relief. Give the gift of wellness today and we know your pets will love you for it!

I’ll be honest, I don’t understand the science behind this completely, but I know that this mat is Tiger’s favorite place to be. He’s not an older cat but still sees it as soothing. The only time he really moves on it is to change positions while sleeping.

Achy Paws Pet Mat  donnahup

He curls up, stretches out, lays on his back, his belly and twisted into numerous positions.

I love that it is machine washable.  Tiger is a furball and sheds a lot to begin with but even more so in the summer.

Have fun this summer with Zing Toys

 

*I received a Zing Toys Zano Bow and Zing X6 Boom Rocketz to facilitate my review. All thoughts are 100% honest and my own. 

Zing Toys Review

Summer time is here!  That means the kids will be home all day and they’ll need to be entertained. Don’t get me wrong, they can entertain themselves for about 5 minutes then need specific direction. Once they get going they do great so they were very excited to receive mail.
Needless to say we had some very excited munchkins.
They couldn’t wait to go outside and use them.
The Air Hunterz Zano Bow is the perfect indoor Archery Set! The Zano Bow shoots arrows over 30 feet that stick to almost any flat surface. Includes wall target for awesome indoor target practice in the bedroom or the office!

The X6 Zoom Rocketz is the first-ever auto-rotating, multi-shooting Zoom Rocketz! Load all six rockets and stomp rapid-fire style to send all six launching over 75 feet one after the other!

Here is what Jayden (age 11) had to say about it:
They were so much fun. They are very easy to configure and it stuck to stuff really easy.  I also like that you can put it in a big pocket so it’s easy to pull out and shoot my little brother and little sister. It’s really fun and it does not leave marks on the wall or take off paint. It also doesn’t hurt when you get hit. Moms should buy this for their kids because it’s really really fun!

Travel to a distant land with Techno Gears Marble Mania Voyager. This marble set features dual hand cranks that turn two bucket and chain pulley systems on either side of the build, lifting the marbles to the top of the build where they set off on a new adventure!

I love toys that cause you to think and learn. Yes, toys are for having fun, but it’s great when they serve a dual purpose.  Jayden loves science and engineering. He was very excited when he found out he was getting this.

Techno Gears Marble Mania Voyager jayden donnahup

Here’s Jayden’s thoughts:

I think it was hard, but fun. I had a little bit of a hard time putting it together because it was a little confusing.  My favorite thing about the game is when you are done with making the project then you can watch the marbles go down the ‘slides’.  I don’t think little kids can do it because it might be a little complicated for them. I think moms should by this for their kids (like ages 10 and older) because it works your brain a lot, and it is a LOT OF FUN!!!!!

Vizcaya Museum & Gardens in Miami, FL

Jayden outside Vizcaya Museum & Gardens

Vizcaya, now named the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, is the former villa and estate of businessman James Deering, of the Deering McCormick-International Harvester fortune, on Biscayne Bay in the present day Coconut Grove neighborhood of Miami, Florida. The early 20th century Vizcaya estate also includes: extensive Italian Renaissance gardens; native woodland landscape; and a historic village outbuildings compound. The landscape and architecture were influenced byVeneto and Tuscan Italian Renaissance models and designed in the Mediterranean Revival architecture style, with Baroque elements. Paul Chalfin was the design director.

Jayden and I spent the day at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens and had a blast!  We both love history.  We started the day with a self guided audio tour. We were able to go through the rooms in the house and learn about the architecture, design and more. The house was amazing!  There is so much history in the walls of the mansion.

I have to wear my gloves though when I drive until the heat kicks in.  I didn’t use this feature in FL but can see how I would use it constantly here.

The radio and navigational system was also great. It had a full navigational system and even a back up camera that was super helpful.  I had the ability to plug in my iPod and listen to music, listen to local radio stations, or listen to SiriusXM.

Kanoodle® Genius Game Review

 

*I received Kanoodle and Kanoodle Genius to facilitate my review. All thoughts are 100% honest and my own.

Our products are designed by seasoned educators and parents who know that, first and foremost, learning must be fun.

kanoodle 6

We love games around here and playing games.  We were sent both Kanoodle® and Kanoodle® Genius to try out.

kanoodle 2

 

If you’ve mastered Kanoodle, it’s time for Kanoodle Genius! Pick a puzzle from the book, set up the challenge, and place the remaining pieces to solve 200 more mind-bending puzzles. Perfectly portable for brain-building on the go. 

  • Develops spatial reasoning skills
  • Exercises critical thinking skills
  • Advanced version of best-selling Kanoodle
  • A caboodle of 202 brain-teasing puzzles!
  • Fit the pieces onto the board to complete the puzzles shown in the puzzle book

There is not much difference between these two games. The only difference, I think is that the Kanoodle Genius is a little harder.

kanoodle 5

 

They come with a little booklet inside that help you solve problems. Now some of the problems are hard,but fun!!! I like this game a lot because it works your mind,and it is so fun!!! I think moms should buy this game for their kids because it is a lot of fun to do,and it will work their minds a lot which will help make them smart.  This game is so fun!!!  :)
