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.

Solar Lights, Sogrand Outdoor Garden Path Light, LED Pathway Lighting Stainless Steel, for Patio Yard Walkway Landscape Pack of 4

The Sogrand LED Stainless Steel Solar Lights give my front garden a beautiful warm light.  As these lights have the stainless steel poles, I can put them where our landscaping company use the weed wacker. 

We live in a community that has an H.O.A., and are not supposed to put anything on the grass.  Even when I have lights close to the grass, they have been known to cut through plastic.

These are so well made, and easy to install.  Just push the top into the pole, and the stake at the bottom.  Put them where there is sunlight, and let them work.  Turn the switch to the ON position, under the solar panel at the top, and you are all set.

You have the pretty lights that come on as dusk, and go off in the morning.  You are giving your home extra security, as well as saving energy, and taking care of the environment.  Whatever way you look at it, you are saving.

I really love my lights, and want to

praise the Sogrand brand for their quality.  I did receive mine for free, and can honestly say how well they work.

Sogrand Solar Light,Garden Lights, Outdoor Stake Landscape Lighting 4 Pack Dual Warm White LED for Patio Yard Pathway Walkway Driveway Lawn

There are some lights that take pride in my garden, and the Sogrand Dual Warm White LED Solar Lights, are one of my favorites.  The reason being that they are light at the top of the light, and also in the lower bulb.  It is hard to explain, but you should be able to see it in my photos.

They come with everything you need in the box.  All you have to do it put them together that takes a minute or two.  Put them along the pathway, driveway, or wherever you need light.  Then switch to the ON position, and with the sunshine in the day, they will come on at night.  The solar panels at the top of the lights, will give you free energy, so they are very environmental friendly.

These are so pretty looking down on them as they make a beautiful pattern.  Also they help to protect your home, giving the outside lights at night, which is a great safety feature for your home.

These are so well made, and are a steal at only $16.99, for the box o

f 4.  I did receive mine for free, and wanted to write a review about them.

Dickens style Sogrand Solar Outdoor Garden Lanterns, LED Pathway Lighting for Yard Patio Walkway Landscape

The Sogrand 2 piece Lantern LED Solar Lights remind me of Dickens, and when I used to live in England, just 8 miles from Rochester, where they have the Dickens festival.

They are really ornate, and create a pretty entrance to a walkway, pathway, or anywhere that 2 lights will work.

As they are solar, there is no work involved with them, apart from putting the stakes together, and then finding the right place to put them outside.  A spot in bright sunshine is perfect.

You take the top off, where the solar panel is, and underneath is a switch.  Just push it over to the ON position.  Now your lights will look beautiful during the day, and light up at night.

You are saving energy costs, and also helping the environment as well.  I can certainly imagine these at Christmas time, taking you back to far away days.  They can sustain all kinds of weather, but the more sun you have, the better they perform.

I did receive mine for free, and tested them in my garden.  They work great, and my only problem,

is to decide where I am placing them permanently.

Solar Lights, Sogrand Outdoor Garden Path Light,Warm White LED Pathway Lighting for Patio Yard Walkway Pack of 4

When we were staying at the shelter, as Hurricane Irma came across Florida, is was nice to know that the Sogrand Outdoor Solar Lights were protecting our property. I know that they were, because the night of our return, they lit up.

Solar lights are amazing, and these are no exception.  They come complete in the box.  The 4 bulbs with the solar panels on the top, the center poles, and the stakes.

I put these along the patio a couple of days before the hurricane hit, so they had received plenty of sunshine to charge the solar panels.  All I had to do was turn the switch under the panel, to the On position.

These are a warm LED white, which gives an almost yellow glow to them.

The bulb area is plastic, and I can tell you that they withheld hurricane winds, so when they say that they are:

  • ‘ALL WEATHER DURABILITY :These heavy duty solar pathway lights can withstand a wide range of weather conditions, including rain,

    snow, wind, and hot or cold temperatures.’

I can honestly say that they do.

I did receive mine for free, and as said above, these have really been put to the test, and passed with glowing colors.

Heading off to a shelter to get away from Hurricane Irma, but taking the Moreslan Mini Portable Microphone, Condenser Stereo Microphone for iPhone, iPad Tablet and Android with me.

We had planned to go to the shelter today, but I will be driving us up to the Medical Needs shelter, first thing tomorrow morning.  As  well as linens, toiletries, and change of clothing, they suggest taking something to keep you occupied.

That’s why I am taking the Moreslan Mini Portable Microphone, with me.  It has a 90 degree swivel so that you can have it directly to your lips.  It is so easy, you just plug in and play.  I am taking my headphones with me as it has a  Y Splitter Cable, which can be used for inserting headphones for monitoring.

From the webpage:

  • ‘Great compatibility: Suitable for your devices like smartphone with Android and IOS system, Apple iPad, iPhone, Macbook etc.
  • Innovative Design: this product is made of aluminium alloy materials. It has an exquisite and fashionable appearance.’

I have tested it out already, but will enjoy it more, once I can relax at the shelter, and have fun with fellow evacuees.

I did receive this at a discounted price, and chose to write a review about it.  So far I am very happy with it.  Love how small it is.

SUIEK Minimalist Slim Wallet RFID Leather Front Pocket Wallet Thin Credit Card Holder

Keeping safe is so important nowadays, and especially here in Florida, with the hurricane close by.  Therefore it is great that my husband has the SUIEK Minimalist Slim Wallet RFID Leather Front Pocket Wallet/Thin Credit Card Holder.

We have our names down for a Medical Special Needs Shelter, and I would be very reluctant to have all our paperwork, green cards, social security cards, as well as the main ones we keep in our wallets not secure.

This wallet, like the kinzd ones, will protect our identity, and credit card numbers.

From the Amazon website:

  • Crazy Horse Full Grain Leather
  • Credit Holder Size Approximately: 4.4″ x 3.15″ x 0.12″
  • 6 card slots, 1 ID window, 1 money/receipt pocket
  • RFID Shielding – Blocking will be effective for contactless new Credit/Debit Cards as well as HID i Class newer cards. Does Block 13.56 MHz Frequency (Does NOT Block 125 KHz frequency)

It is really thin, but roomy enough to get several cards in, money, and also a driver’s license.

It comes in a beautiful presentation box, and is a perfect gift for that man in your life.  Actually for the lady too as these fit so well in fanny packs, waist bags, and purses.

I did receive mine for free, and have been totally honest in my review.

Holiday Sogrand Solar Jar Lights, Copper Cap Glass Jar Hanging Light, Decorative Lantern, for Garden, Party, Patio,Yard, Landscape Decor (Transparent)

With Halloween, and Christmas not too far away, it’s time to think of decorations. The Sogrand hanging solar jar light

has to be one of the cutest I have seen.

You can actually try it out in your home first.  We have had a lot of rain, in Florida, so very little sunshine to get the solar panel working.  However,  it does have a battery in the top of it.  I just pulled off the top, and underneath it is the switch.  I turned it to the on position.

Immediately there were pink, green, off white, and blue lights in the jar. They are in the shape of an S, so the colored lights fill the jar/lantern.  With it being a dull day, the lights show up well in our living area.  They don’t need complete darkness to work.

Once we have sunshine I will put them outside, where the sun can shine on the solar panel, and the lights will come on whenever it gets dark enough for them to shine.

Being solar, with battery included, these will work for you, with no plugs, cables, electricity costs to you.  It also makes you feel good about the environment.

Now is a great time to buy new festive lights, and these certainly fit the bill.  It’s great that you can hang them from the rope handle,  or have them standing on the ground. Both ways look amazing.

I received this product for free, have had it for a while now, and tested it fully.

Sogrand Post Cap, Super Bright 10 Lumen Silver Vinyl Solar Lights, Fence Lamp Deck Outdoor Post Lights, For Yard, Pathway, Dock, Driveway, Pack of 2

Do you have a pergola, posts, or places where you need to set a light on the top?  If so, then the Sogrand Post Cap Silver Solar Lights, could be just what you are looking for.

These 2 beautiful lights, are silver, and look great during the day, but so beautiful at night.  We had a lot of rainy days, here in Florida, so waited until a dry evening to take photos of them.

There is nothing you have to do for them, as they have everything you need in them. Put the lights in a sunny spot, and let the light from the sun do it’s job.  The solar panels, are the energy source, as well as a battery already in them.

Pull off the top of the lights, and turn the switch to the on position, and then push it back on.  Once it gets dark, the lights will come on.  They have this truly white, white that looks like diamonds.  The shape is just gorgeous, and they really show up well in the dark.

I was thinking,

if you have a gate to your property, these would really light up each side of it.

I really love mine, and even though I got them for free, I feel that they are worth the money.  A classy product.
