Taking a break is like a breath of fresh air 

We spend a lot of time at Treasure island beach, but always on our own. I enjoy the solitude of walking along the water’s edge for hours.

However, friends bought the same week of timeshare as us, and so I have a girlfriend to walk with.

They wanted to check out restaurants, bars, and tourist attractions.

We have had so much fun going to old, and new places with them.

So I wanted to share with you a video, and some photos. We still have until Saturday, as there are more places to go.

Having problems adding photos here, but will put more in later.

At the beach and using the MerceHygea Icy Freeze Evaporative Cooling Towel Stay Cool for Gym, Outdoor Sports etc.

Right now I am staying at Treasure Island beach, Florida, and the temperatures are hitting 90 degrees.  Therefore I was pleased to receive the MerceHygea Icy Freeze Cooling Towel.

I walk the beach for hours a day, and have been known to walk 19 and a half miles, 42,500 steps in one day.  During the afternoon the sun really beats down, so the Cooling Towel has really helped me.

All I do is soak it in cold water, wring it out as much as possible, and the snap it.  I have had it around my neck, on my head, and across my shoulders.  It keeps them cool for the couple of hours, that I stay each time I go down.  Of course I always take plenty of water to drink too.

When I am not on vacation I go to the gym every day, do boxing, kick boxing, Zumba, and circuit training.  Again this towel has come in really handy for me, as the sweat is pouring off of me after my boxing training.  Some of my friends are interested in it, after seeing me using it.

The price is only $9.99, and it comes in Bright Green, Deep Blue, Orange Yellow, and Rose Red.  The leaflet that comes with it is in Chinese, and not English, so my one suggestion, would be to have a translation on it.  Otherwise you need to come to the Amazon webpage to read about it.

I did receive mine for free, and chose to write a review about it.

Sexyshine Women’s Autumn Casual Embroidered Lace 3/4 Sleeve V-neck Hollow Out White Blouse T-Shirt Tops

Living in Florida I can wear summer clothing all year round.  That’s why I so wanted the Sexyshine Women’s Casual Embroidered Lace White Blouse.

It is a really soft cotton, and feels great against the skin.  It has three quarter length sleeves that also are embroidered.  It has a deep V neck, that has lace on it, and the rest of the top of it is plain.  From the waist down it again has the embroidery.  

It has scalloping on the edges of the sleeves, and the bottom of the blouse.  There is also a tie, to go around the waist.

I bought the small, and it fits me perfectly.  I am an American 2-4 size.

This will be perfect for any casual occasion.  You can wear it with shorts, Capris, trousers, jeans, or a skirt.  I personally will only wear it with a white bra, as the fabric is so delicate, that you can see a bra through it.

I will be going down to the beach for a week shortly, and this will be a perfect addition to my wardrobe.  I know I will wear it over my bikini, and also with shorts.

I did receive this item at a discounted price, and it was my choice to right a positive review on it.

BerGGic Absorbent Cooling Towel for Instant Relief, 40×12 inch Snap Cooling Towel for Sports, Workout, Fitness, Gym, Yoga, Pilates, Travel, Camping & More

I was so happy at the gym this morning, because I had the BerGGic Absorbent Cooling Towel, around my neck.

This is a good size, being 40 inches long, and 12 inches wide.  It comes in either pink, or blue.  It is so simple to use.  All you do is soak it in cold water, ring it out, and then snap it.  If you are not sure what that is, you take one end, and flip it up and down.

I then put it around my neck, and it stayed there through my 2 hour workout, driving home, and for half an hour here.  It stayed cool all the time.

My video pretty much explains what I did at the gym, and shows you the towel in detail.  Therefore I am just going to say that it worked really great, and I will be using it when I am boxing.  That has to be my sweatiest workout, as it just drips off of me.

At $7.97 it is perfect for anyone that sweats, or gets really hot.  You will get relief with it.  I did receive mine for free, but am thinking of getting some of these for friends that could use them.

Sun hat, Exwell Waterproof Mess Cowboy hats, Fishing hat, Women/Men hats for Fishing, Farming, Camping, Boating and Gardening

I tend to do my gardening when the sun is going down, but won’t have to worry now, thanks to the Exwell Sun Hat.  

Living in Florida, the temperatures are really high, so I try to keep out of the sun, to prevent sunstroke.  I must admit I never covered  my head.  Now I have an excellent quality sun hat, I will have total protection for my head, as well as my face.  Recently I had a skin cancer removed from my forehead, it was a stressful time, and thankfully the plastic surgeon got it all.  I am not taking anymore chances.

It is also great, as so often it starts raining, as it is our hurricane season, and I end up coming in.  With this hat being waterproof, I can finish off what I am doing, before packing up.

This is the part I love from the Amazon website:  ‘BREATHABLE AND ANTI-SUNBURN: The Safari Hat has a net inlaid beneath the polyester that makes up the external material of the hat allow for less sweating when wearing it. The wide brim also wide to block sunrays for protection against sunburn.

 The Safari Hat is made of special waterproof material that sheds off water allowing the hat to be used for various activities such as fishing, camping, boating and gardening.’

It fits all sizes, and can be a sun hat or a cowboy hat.  This is great for men or women, and on all outdoor activities.

I am really happy with it, and was delighted to receive it for free.  I have tested it in sunshine, and rain.

MECO Round Beach Throw Tassel Decor with Small Balls Flowers Pattern 56” Circular Yoga Sheet Picnic Mat Hippie Table Cover Home Decor Tapestry Wall Hanging

I wanted the MECO Circular Sheet to cover up an area of my new patio.  We had a new patio built, in our back garden, a few months ago.  I then bought from Amazon, a 9′ umbrella, base, and 2 zero gravity chairs.

Unfortunately when we brought the chairs inside, as we were going away, the rain that had accumulated in the cracks ran onto the patio.  It was rust, so even though I have bleached the area many times, I have stains.

As you can see in my photos, it is really pretty, and big enough to cover the worst ones.  Hopefully the others will get lighter in time.

I opened it up on my kitchen floor so that you could get a better view of it.

From the Amazon website:

  • High quality Viscose Round Beach Towel Tassel Yoga Picnic Mat.
  • Pattern Type: Floral Material: Viscose. Cold Machine Wash/ Dry Clean. PLEASE DO NOT BLEACH

It can be hung on a wall, or used as a tablecloth.  There are many uses for it.

I am very happy with it, and was delighted to receive it for free.

Fitackle Running Belt Waist Pack, Water Resistant Fanny Pack Runners Belt Outdoor Sports Gear for iPhone 6/6S Plus 7/7 Plus Samsung Galaxy S7 S8

I have been at the beach for a few days, so decided to test the Fitackle Water Resistant Waist Pack/Fanny Pack.  Usually it would be at the gym, but feel that walking several miles a day, sweating in the sun, carrying lots of items, was a great test for it.

As you can see from my photos, I was only wearing a bikini, so needed to put my Galaxy Samsung J7 phone in it, the keys for the apartment, a Kleenex, lip balm, and a couple of candies.  No problem they all fitted with plenty of room to spare.

It has the main compartment, with 3 sections in it.  Then one at each side.  The left one has a Velcros top to keep items safe, the other side has a slit pocket.  It has plenty of waistband, so will fit the majority of sizes.  The clasp was a little tight to begin with, but that is a good thing.

It is made of Lycra, lightweight, durable, and water resistant.  It also comes with a lifetime warranty, which certainly makes you feel good.

I personally feel that it looks smart, is a quality product, and can be worn almost anywhere.  I will be using it at the gym, and it has a hole to put a cable through, if you are using earphones.

I did receive this item at a discount, and have really tested it, before writing my review.

MeeQee 12×40 Compact Binocular Telescope with FMC Bak4 Prism Low Light Night Vision Wide Angle Powerful Binocular for Bird Watching, Summer Camping, Travel, Sports and Concerts (Black and Yellow)

We have several nature trails, in the local parks, so taking a pair of binoculars is great.  That is why I was happy to receive the MeeQee 12 x 40 Compact Binocular Telescope.  They have FMC Bak4 Prism Low Light Night Vision, are wide angle, and powerful.

Upon opening the box, the binoculars are in a really nice carry case, that has a Velcros closure, and a strong loop at the back, to have them on a belt.  There is a single sheet instruction page, and a cloth, for cleaning them.

Today is a rainy day, so I went out into my garage, and adjusted one eye at a time, and then used the center focus wheel to get perfect long distance vision.  I could see neighbors foliage, way down the other end of the street, which is impossible with just my eyes.  It was crystal clear.

From the website: ‘LARGE BAK-4 PRISM AND FULLY MULTI-COATED LENS – Strengthen the key function of a binocular and guarantee superior light transmission which makes your view brighter and clearer.  ERGOCOMFORT FRAME – NON-SLIP rubber material and ergocomfort design help you hold the binocular easily and comfortably. You can watch birds, outdoor sports or concerts for hours without feeling tired.’

I did try them at dusk, before it got really dark, and they worked great for me.  They can be used in any weather conditions, so perfect for walking, bird watching, and anytime you want a close up.

They feel very comfortable, and have a strap that goes around your neck, for when they are not in use.

I did receive these at a discounted price, and wanted to write a review about them.

FengYuan 3 Pairs bra inserts for swimsuits Women sport bra inserts pads (Beige) 5X5inch

If you wear sports bras, swimsuits, or bikinis, then you will want to get the FengYuan 3 pairs of bra insert pads.  

I wear sports bras every day, and often the inserts move as they are small, get wrinkled, and are very thin.  They are there to cover up the outline of your nipples, and really don’t do much else.

I have photos of my flat sports bra, so I took out the pathetic insert pads, through the holes in the sides, and put the 5 x 5 inch new ones.  I then put my bra on, and my photos show me with the more supportive ones.  I am a 34B, and this ‘all in one size’ fits perfectly for me.  It gives me more shape, and I have no bounce, when wearing it.

From the website: ‘They are a bit of one size fits all I’d say ranging from a A-D cup. A’s and B’s probably see a bit of size increase with these while C’s and D’s will just add shape and hide nipples.’

They are made of 96% Nylon, 4% Spandex, and are stitched all the way around, which makes them a quality product.

I did receive these to test them, at a discounted price, and my account of them is totally honest.
