WonderVeg Spiralizer

The WonderVeg Slicer is the best gadget in my kitchen right now. I am loving playing with it. You get three blades- a shredder that makes long spaghetti like noodles, a chipper which makes thick spirals, and a straight for making like potato chips snacks. It is so easy to use and works fast. It comes with a cleaning brush and is super easy to clean. I love the storage slots underneath to store the extra blades in.
It is very safe and has four suction cups to help it not move around when you are using it. It makes cutting my veges fun! Now all our fries are curly fries. Check it out HERE.

Aduro Sport Waterproof Case/Bag for Smartphones with Audio Out

I have only used my Aduro Sport waterproof case twice, but I really like it so far. It has a place for your headphone jack so you can listen to music while in the water. It clearly stated use to one foot of water. I would not go much deeper than that. The bag itself holds a device up to 5.5 inches. The thing I do not like is I had to continually check the closure and reassemble it. This is why I gave it four stars instead of five. That was a hassle.
Before using this bag with my phone, I tested it in my sink under water with paper inside. No moisture or leakage at all. It will also be great for keeping your licsense, credit card, hotel key, keys, or anything you want to keep dry. I ordered the pink, because I Love pink and it is a bright beautiful shade of hot pink. This case has two locks which are very easy to use. Highly recommend!

These Popsicle Ice Pop Molds by Poplicious are quality made and I use them a few times a week. I am diabetic and am able to make my own sugar free ice pops to enjoy as a snack all summer. I like adding fresh fruit to mine. Delicious! You get six molds in a tray that snap together. No leaking with these! The plastic mold is very sturdy and will last many summers. If you wiggle the frozen mold around a little, the ice pop will slide right out. You do not have to run them under water like the old pops I had. The plastic is BPA free. They are easy to clean and dishwasher safe.

It's going to be a fun summer with amazing Ice treats. Plus it saves lots of money I would spend on sugar free popcicles.

Awesome recipe- from

2-ingredient Pineapple Cream Popsicles
Makes 12 popsicles
5 cups pineapple chunks (I used partially thawed frozen; either fresh or frozen is fine)
1 (15 ounce) can coconut milk (I used full fat version, lite will probably work fine)
Blend together the pineapple chunks and coconut milk.  Pour liquid into your popsicles molds and freeze.  Enjoy!

May, where did you go so quickly?

Long Lasting Durable Straws

We use a lot of plastic straws at our house and when on the road, so when I found the steel straws, I was excited to try them. They are of course made of stainless steel for long term use. I am super surprised at how much I like them. They have a bent look but they do not bend. It comes with its own cleaning brush to clean the straw inside. Very easy to clean. They are just a tad bit larger than a regular straw. They are lightweight and extremely durable, which will save money in the long run. They are great for smoothies! They may seem a little expensive but when you think of how long they will last and how many plastic straws we use and buy, this is a great deal!

'Face lift in a bottle' is the right name for this

I first saw this on the Dr. Oz show and wanted to try it. I am so glad now that I did. My face glows and my thin lines around my eyes and on my forehead are slowly fading. My skin feels like I've had a face lift. They are easy to swallow with no aftertaste or stomach problems. The Phytoceramides 350 mg actually works. I don't yet know the long term affects but for now, it is simply superb. I have used so many serums and creams that were all good, but none have made my skin feel like this within a few short weeks. I am 60 with aging dull skin and this has made me feel much younger than I am. Highly recommend this product. It should get 10 stars. A++
