Chetoo 42mm stainless steel Apple Watch Band(Affiliate Link)

Review: I got this for Matthew he had been wanting Apple Watch bands without the apple watch band price.
He has had this for a several weeks now.

I don’t pay attention to often he wears these but he said…

It is seems well made, sturdy.
He likes the stainless steel.
It has a nice heft to it.

The connectors to make it compatible with the Apple watch were easy to put on.

The only downside is that it doesn’t look exactly like the apple one so you can’t pretend like it is.

I received this in exchange for an honest review.

Review: I have been using this for a few weeks and
overall it seems like a good cord.

I like the indicator light.
The cord part is more of a ribbon as seen in pic, rather than a normal
rounded cord.

I did have problems with it working with certain cases and not others.

Overall I would probably get this again.

I got this for my husband a while ago.
After giving it to him and hearing how good his sounded
I must say I was a bit jealous.

I also have one, and his sounds so much more clear than mine.
With mine you can tell its coming from a speaker.
With his it sounds as clear as if it is coming straight from his phone.

I will probably get me one of these when mine dies.

 Review: I got these for Matthew. He wears them all the time with his day job. So naturally he goes through them relatively quickly.  With his first use he noticed two things. Firstly that they do an amazing job at blocking out sounds. Secondly that whenever he bent over it would start playing the music.

With that he hasn’t used it for work, but if he stay up watching a movie in bed and doesn’t want to disturb me these are perfect for it.

Review: I am not a wine drinker. It tastes gross to me.
I know why am I here. Well I got this for my husband who loves wine.
It was hard for me to believe but he loved it more after using this.

So of course I had to give it a try. Now as I said before I don’t drink wine.
I have sips of the wines my husbands drink. I suppose in the hope I will find one that
I actually like and can have a glass with him from time to time.

I want to say that the first one he used this with was called “Dark Horse’, it was his favorite before this, after he loves it even more.
This is one of the ones I had tried a taste of. If you have tried this particular one its name is true. It is an extremely dark and dry wine.
The initial tasting wasn’t the worst I have had but still not pleasant(for me).

After my husband used this it still wasn’t up to where I could drink it regularly but it tasted better than it had before.

If you like wine I recommend this..
My husband doesn’t drink wine without it now.

I would for sure get this again.

Review: These are not the first ice cube trays I have had made out of the silicone. My other ones are from I think Ikea.

Overall this is a good product. I love the uniform square sections. As you may have seen elsewhere they are good for making chocolates and what not.

I am not sure I would get them again. Not that it is a bad product, I just don’t feel I personally like it enough.



Review: This is basically a card version of seek & find books. Except instead of seeking stuff in a book its things in your home. There are different levels. With progressively harder words for your kids to read.

My kids loved this game. They have asked to play it several times. They even enjoyed reading the cards and were very excited to do whatever the card had to say.


Disclaimer: I had a bit of a problem with the Chetoo Apple watch band company. The product seems good. However, I received 2 bands to review. I ordered them through Amazon and both arrived missing parts. One arrived broken. Both seemed as though they were previous returns.


Beard Balm Review

Beard Balm

Review: I got this for Matt, and I
believe he has had it for a couple of weeks now.

He was running out of his favorite balm so I have been trying to find him another
one that he may like just a much, if not more.

That being said, this wasn’t better than his favorite.
Thats not to say its bad. In comparison to some others he has tried recently this was the
better of those.

I believe he said that it just didn’t do for his beard what he wanted it to do.
I don’t think he will get this one again.
