iLuminate Folding LED Travel Mirror

If you are anything like me, you use your phone’s camera to check or reapply your makeup. The only problem is there is no light to
really see all the details. The iLuminate travel mirror has a LED light with a regular and magnified mirror so you can get in really close. This will probably be shared between me and my daughter for those quick makeup checks.

Banish Acne Scar Kit

Nobody likes acne scars, especially teen girls. Get her this acne scar kit to help clear up her skin so it has a fresh glow. I like to keep things simple and have taught my daughter to do the same. Fortunately, we both have pretty clear skin but occasionally a pimple will leave a scar. This kit contains Pumpkin Enzyme repair cream and vitamin C serum to help the scars fade.

Cupright

CUPRIGHT, which is a table and desktop tip-proof insulated cup holder. It’s a perfect gift for co-workers or anyone that drinks out of a paper cup, bottle, or can work, or at home. Accidental spills happen when you least expect them, and keyboards and other electronics are expensive to repair, not to mention, rugs, dry-cleaning bills, and valuable time cleaning up messes. In addition, CUPRIGHT is insulated and also helps keep your beverage warmer or cooler longer and it eliminates the need for a coaster.

Buy a Cupright or two for $17.99 each

Give the Gift of Safety this Christmas

Give the Gift of Safety this Christmas

With two teens, my daughter who is in college, works, and drives all over the city, and my son who is beginning to launch out I’m always concerned about their safety. I try not to be paranoid when they go out but I’m that kind of mother with the wild imagination.

I’m thinking about what to get them for Christmas. My daughter says she just wants clothes and makeup and my son wants Star Wars footed pajamas. If only life were that simple and if only those things could keep them safe. Well this year, in addition to getting them what they want, I’m giving them the gift of safety.

There are a few options. I can get my daughter a can of mace and a whistle. That really could work but she may need something more if she is stranded on the side of the road in her car or walking across campus.

Self-defense classes is a great gift. I took classes when I was in college and I always remember what I learned all those years ago. I need something more immediate, portable, and great for any sticky situation though.E/T Safety Lights Give Gift of Safety

I heard about and ordered the E/T muti-use safety light to see how it works. According to the website Special Operations
military uses it on missions. There are four colored lights that mean different things in a rescue situation. I don’t want to think about that kind of scenario but it’s better to be safe than sorry for example during hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, earthquakes, etc…

When I got the light, I took it out of the packaging and started pressing the button, I cycled through the four colors, red, yellow, blue and green. The final cycle was a strobe of all the colors. The E/T Light was originally designed for US Spec Ops medics. E/T Lights last from 4 to 9 days on a constant on selection, they can be used for backup lights for those with no power, signaling lights for rescue, and still be used for a Christmas party or Mardi Gras!

If you want to add another layer of safety to your kids, college-aged daughter, elderly parent, or yourself it might be a good idea to give the gift of safety with the E/T light and free Visual 911+ app.

I took the AT&T Unite Pro by NETGEAR for a test drive through the back roads of Georgia. Having a mobile hotspot was really sweet on a road trip.

Holiday Travel Boredom Buster Solution

In our high-tech world it’s easy to bust the boredom during holiday travel. Planes, trains, and automobiles are the perfect place to have a mobile hotspot on hand for all the mobile devices. Save the expense of connecting to a public or airport network or spotty connection with your own mobile hotspot. (more…)

[Review] 7pm Turn Your Smartphone into a TV Remote

[Review] 7pm Turn Your Smartphone into a TV Remote

7pm phone remote

The 7pm is quite nifty. I got up a little early to set it up and found that it was actually fun. 7pm comes with an attachment for your phone and with the app you can control your tv’s channels and volume with the push of a button or a shake of the wrist. It also let’s you star your favorite channels.

Set up was pretty simple and straight-forward, you just follow the directions. Although it took me longer than it should because I did not have my phone at the proper angle in relation to the TV. You are also supposed to be able to add multiple devices, so you would be able to turn off the blu ray and turn on the game all with your phone. Sadly I was not able to accomplish this.

All and all I thought it was a pretty decent app. So for you TV heads who constantly lose your 8″ remote hopefully you will be able to keep up with the 2″ attachment that come with the 7pm.
