Latest from #Amazonclosed

I was on the phone to Amazon for an hour today, and the Supervisor could not understand how I placed on order with a ‘closed’ account, and it has been shipped.  I told her how upset I was with Amazon, and the inconvenience.  I asked for compensation, and this is part of the email she has just sent to me:


from Amazon Escalation Department. I can completely understand how frustrating and annoying the situation can be when something like this happens but believe us it was never our intention. As we discuss, we are going to take care about your account. We just have to wait within 2-3 business days. As we submitted a form on Saturday, you should hear from the Specialist Team tomorrow Wednesday April 4, 2018 by the end of the day.

To compensate for this inconvenience, I’ve issued a $25.00 promotional certificate to your account, which will automatically apply the next time you order an eligible item sold and shipped by The promotional certificate doesn’t apply to items offered by other sellers on the website and won’t cover the purchase of gift cards, sales tax, gift wrap, or additional shipping costs.

Your promotional balance doesn’t appear in Your Account, but will always display at checkout when you place an order through the Shopping Cart for an eligible item shipped and sold by Amazon.

Still don’t have my account opened up to view my credit cards, PayPal details, and orders, but at least I had a helpful Supervisor for a change.


QT Lumbar Brace by Calibre Support, Helps Reduce Lower Back Pain

I wore this belt today, and almost every day since writing the review back in October 2016. It is still like new, the Velco works great. It is firm enough to protect my back, and the little back brace got given away. I can’t praise this one enough.


Years ago I had a really good quality back brace.  I loaned it to a friend and never got it back.  I do have a narrow brace/belt support in bright pink, that I wear when boxing/kick boxing, and lifting weights.

However, my sciatica has been painful lately, so thought that the QT Lumbar Brace by Calibre Support, Helps Reduce Lower Back Pain, would help me.

This brace gives really good back support.  It is like 2 really wide belts, in one.  You wrap the first one around you, and then the second one.  They both open, and close, with Velcro.

It states on the website that it has ‘PREMIUM EFFECTIVE SUPPORT – This QT Back Brace helps relieve lower back pain with four re-enforcing struts and two Velcro fastening compression straps. This design will improve your posture to aid treatment and recovery for back problems, such as a slipped…

More deals and steals from Amazon.

I really have been fortunate lately to get the best Deals and Steals, from groups I belong to.  Again I thought I would share some with you.  These were coupons that I was able to use to get these great products.

The first one is the QING OUTDOOR
Yoga Socks for Women Non Skid Socks with Grips Barre Socks Pilates Socks.  They came in a pack of 3, retailing at $12.99, and I got them for $1.30.  I am thinking of kick boxing.  They will be perfect.

The second one is the

Massage Ball Trigger Point Therapy Plantar Fasciitis Muscle Roller Ball Massager Deep Tissues Massage Roller Foot Massager Ball Myofascial Release Spiky Massage Ball.

When I get a full body massage, one of my favorite parts are my feet, as it feels so good.  This little ball works well into the feet, and I get a similar feeling.  It retails at $18.99, and I paid $1.02 will my coupon.

My third one is the 2x Core Exercise Sliders Gliding Discs | Premium Dual Sided Ab Sliding Slider | Larger Than Competitors | Use On Carpet Hardwood Floor | Compact For Travel Carry Bag Included | By Proven.

I had seen similar ones being used in one of the Fitness Centers I use, and wanted to try them out.  For the retail price of $13.97 they are a good product, but if you pay more you can get even stronger ones.  With my group coupon I paid $1.40, and am having fun with them.

First off you have to buy on Amazon, and do reviews before joining these groups.  To get started you can go into this link, that I wrote a few days ago.

Uptown Cosmeceuticals Eyelash Growth Serum for longer, thicker lashes.

I am using my third tube of Uptown Cosmeceuticals Eyelash Serum, and thought I would update this review. My eyelash are not 75 % thicker or longer, but do look good. I believe that it certainly helps, and wouldn’t like to see my lashes without using this product.


I am someone who tries lots of facial, and eye treatment products.  I have lost weight, and it has gone from my face, as well as the rest of me.  Therefore I use serums, moisturizers, and any other products that I hope will help.

It is ‘a cutting edge eyelash growth serum based on Myristoyl Pentapeptide-17 (10%), Swiss Apple Stem Cell Culture Extract and Botanical Complex Tricholastyl(BASF); also effective as an eyebrow enhancer.’

I have been using the Uptown Cosmeceuticals this week.  It is simple to use.  You take the brush, and stroke it across the eyelid, as close to the lashes as possible, without it going in your eye.  It is not to be used for the lower lashes.

It states that a 25% improvement in growth, and thickness is possible in 2 week, and up to 75% over a 6 week period.  I have been using a eyelash growth serum…

Dimmable LED Candelabra Bulb – Filament – 6 Pack – UL Listed – 5 Watt – 450 Lumen

These bulbs are supposed to last for years, and 4 out of the 6 are still working well. 2 of them had to be replaced.



I am so happy with the Hudson Lighting Dimmable LED Candelabra Bulb – Filament – 6 Pack – UL Listed – 5 Watt – 450 Lumen E12 Base – C11 – 2700K – Warm White – Indoor or Outdoor – Perfect Incandescent Replacement bulbs.

I had 2 areas where I needed them. Firstly in the lounge area. We have a fan, with a light below it. When we took the glass off of it, there were 2 candelabra bulbs. Both were 60 watts. About a week ago one of them went out. Therefore I was happy to change them to these LED 5 watt bulbs. They have the smaller screw in end, and lay sideways, so were a perfect fit. Now the light is brighter, and I am saving a lot of energy, and money.

My bathroom has the small round bulbs, and there are 8 of them. I only…

First Botany Advanced Night Repair Cream and Best Retinol Moisturizer 1.7 fl. oz.

I promised I would update this review, and it isn’t about the product, as it did as good as any other ones I have used, but about the design of the jar. When none would come up the middle, the jar still felt heavy. So I got scissors on the top, and opened it up. There was so much cream in the bottom of the jar. Therefore if you decide to buy this, remember to get another 4 weeks supply, when you cut through the top.


I have wrinkles, lines, and crow’s feet, but at 68 that isn’t surprising.  I like to try different creams, and use them for several weeks, and then compare them with what the website says should happen.  As yet I haven’t found a product that gives me improvement.  I feel that they just keep it the same, which is a good thing for me.

The First Botany Advanced Night Repair Cream comes in an elegant jar, that has a clear top.  You take it off, and then open the hole in the middle of the white top.  Push down several times, and then the cream comes out.  It is thick, and has little smell to it.  It goes into the skin easily, and yes, my face feels really moist.

I certainly like it, but having only used it for a week, I need to continue using it, and come back and…

SVEN RFID Front Pocket Wallet Credit Card Protector Minimalist Slim Wallet Genuine Leather

I am so amazed at how my 2016 posts are doing. Thank you so much. This one needs a little love, that’s why I am reblogging it.


We all have to be so careful nowadays with our credit cards, and other important cards, such as driver’s licenses etc.  After someone got the details of one of my cards, and used the credit card number 4 times at a gas station, I no longer take a chance.

I also tell all my friends to either buy a wallet, or the credit card sleeves, to protect their identity.

The SVEN RFID Front Pocket Wallet Credit Card Protector Minimalist Slim Wallet is made of 100% Napa Genuine Leather.  The moment I took it out of it’s wrapper, I could smell the new leather smell.  It’s one that I really like.

It states that it is slim, and it really is.  The wallet easily fits in my sports purse, that goes around my waist.  It has 3 openings on each side, and a wide one, down the middle.  This would allow you…

TNT Pro Ignite Stomach Fat Burner Body Slimming Cream With HEAT Sweat Technology – Thermogenic

I had a comment on this post asking if the product really worked. Rather than update it, and no one see it. I thought I would reblog it. The answer is ‘No’. I didn’t see any difference at all. Also I have a pair of shorts that have changed color, because of this product. Therefore it is a ‘thumbs down’ for me.


I love working out, and have a great back, shoulders, and muscles in my arms, and legs.  However, I still have a small stomach, and don’t have a 6, 4, or 2 pack.

I had a chance to try the TNT Pro Ignite Stomach Fat Burner Body Slimming Cream.  It has heat sweat technology, and I had nothing to loose trying it.

So this past week, I have been applying a good amount on my stomach, just before working out.  I sweat when I am boxing, and kick boxing, but not normally with other exercise.  So before Zumba, lifting weights, circuit training, and walking at the beach, I put a generous amount on my stomach.  It has a mint smell, which disappears fairly quickly.  It doesn’t have any color to it, and won’t stain clothing.

I find that I sweat more on my stomach now, and am hoping that…

Unable to reblog this review with an update and photos.

Still working great after all this time.  Can really recommend it.

A second birthday party

Sorry I didn’t get to write a review yesterday, but we had a meeting, then drove towards home, stopping off for ‘bangers ‘n’ mash that were amazing.  Next to pick up balloons etc. for the party.  Took them to the Eagles, and set up our tables.  Got my free Starbucks coffee for my birthday, and arrived home mid afternoon.

By the time I had unpacked the food, put it in the fridge/freezer, it was time to go to the second party.  What a night we had.  The ladies had a blast kicking up their heels, as you can see in the video.

Wouldn’t it be fun to do this every day.
