Cellucor Alpha Amino Ultimate EAA & BCAA Recovery Powder, Essential & Branched Chain Amino Acids for Post Workout Recovery, Blueberry Lemonade, 20 Servings


My boxing trainer is working on my muscle and stamina, so when I showed him the Cellucor Alpha Amino Ultimate Recovery Powder, he suggested I use it.  I had a chance to get it at a discounted price, and the flavor is Blueberry Lemonade.

You use 1 scoop either during, or after a workout with 8 – 12 ounces of water.  Shake well so that it mixes.  The taste is okay with me.  A little sweet, although there is no sugar, but artificial sweetener in the other ingredients.

I feel that I am building muscle all the time, as friends say that I look as if I have lost weight, but it is my shape that is changing.  I want to put good nutritional supplements in my diet, so that I know my body is getting everything I need.

Here is information from the Amazon web page:

  • Alpha Amino Ultimate goes beyond post workout recovery with 5g Instantized BCAAs & Essential Performance Amino Acid Complex.
  • Alpha Amino Ultimate packs 13 different amino acids in every scoop, including Micronized L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine at the clinically studied 2:1:1 ratio.

Zuozee Faux Leather Leggings, High Waist Stretch Pants, Elastic Tights Dark Leggings, Misses Leggings Velvet Warm

I bought the Zuozee Faux Leather Leggings as they were half priced, and figured they would be great for the winter months.

With regard to the sizing, it really isn’t that helpful.  It states: M-3XL Hip 40″-55″/W 30″-43″.  So I checked in the ‘Questions and Answer section’, and this is what I found:

Question: how do I choose a size, when ordering ?

They are not true to size. If I am a medium.. I bought an XL.

I am usually a small, and almost didn’t buy them, but when I saw this, I figured medium should fit.  You can see in the photos my husband took that they are too big for me.  I thought about sending them back, but as I had ordered a medium, to me, it was my own fault.
The leggings are beautifully made, and the velvet lining, makes them so warm.  I am keeping them until the winter, and if they are still too big, I will give them to a friend of mine, who is a size 6 – 8.

A couple of items I recently got at a discount.

I ordered the Kakoa Sports Boxing Hand Wraps – Mexican Style (stretchy, elastic), Pair | Perfect for Boxing, Kickboxing, Muay Thai, MMA | Classes, Gym, or Home Workouts | Men, Women, Kids to have as a spare pair.

On Wednesday mornings I volunteer at our local gym.  I teach ladies basic boxing, and to begin with they don’t have gloves or wraps.  There is no way I would let them use the ones in the boxing room.  These are only 120 inches, and I have the 180, so that I can wrap my right wrist well.  I have a titanium plate, steel rod, and 7 screws in that one.  They will be in my gym bag, and anyone is welcome to use them.

The other item I received is  LARGE 12 oz Marine Collagen Peptides Powder. Wild-Caught Fish, Non-GMO. Supports Healthy Skin, Hair, Joints and Bones. Hydrolyzed Type 1 & 3 Protein. Amino Acids, Unflavored, Easy to Mix. FREE scoop!

I have been using Collagen Peptides Powder in my protein shake for months now.  It is an easy way to help my hair, nails, skin, and most important for me, my bones.  At age 50 I had severe osteoporosis, and only 47% bone mass in my left hip.  They were hips of a 90 year old.

With weight bearing exercise, calcium, no caffeine, and little alcohol, I have totally reversed it.  I am 70 and have very slight osteopenia, which is normal for my age.  I have had problems for years with my left hip, and now there is so much improvement, that I will always take this supplement, to add to all the other things I do.

As stated above, I did receive both items at a discounted price, and am very grateful.  The wraps will get a lot of use from many people, and I will use the supplement daily.

I did receive this product at a discounted price, and am happy to have it for my vehicle.



Eyeshadow, Makeup Palette, Glitter, Matte Eyeshadows, 35 Colors Highly Pigmented by ETEREAUTY

When it comes to eye-shadow colors, I tend to go for nude, beige/brown, and similar colors.  I blend them in together so that they look subtle.

That is why I bought the Etereauty Eyeshadow Palette.  You can see the colors in my photos, and they come in

matte, and shimmer colors.

I start off putting the lightest color over my eyelid, and then adding darker colors, blending them in.  This creates a flattering look, that doesn’t make me feel like a ‘painted doll’, if you get my drift.

This palette of 35 colors, are a good size, and certainly worth the $7.89 price.  I did get mine for a couple of dollars cheaper, on a group site.  We are not asked for a review, and none is expected.  However, I thought these to be good quality, and excellent value, so personally wanted to share this product with you.


Rainrop Women Platform Slip On Loafers Shoes Comfort Suede Moccasins Fashion Casual Wedge Sneakers 35-42

I wear sneakers most of the time, as I am a gym rat.  I do wear heels when dancing, and have a couple of pairs of sandals.  However, the Rainrop Women’s Platform Slip On Loafers Shoes, are the most comfortable shoes I have worn.

They are a smart shoe/moccasin/wedge sneaker.  I have the black, but they come in a variety of colors, and 2 different styles.  These you can check out from the Amazon link, at the bottom of this post.  The American sizes are 4.5 – 8.5, and European 35 – 42. I order a size 8, and they are true to size.

I didn’t have to break them in, like some shoes, as they are so soft.  The first day I walked in the house, and since then have used them daily.  I have had them just over a week now, and wear them with no show socks.

From the website: ‘Breathable pigskin leather lining, absorb sweat and deodorant, breathable and lightweight.’  This means that my feet don’t sweat, here in Florida, and that is a great feeling.

I do have a suede brush, but haven’t needed to use it yet.

I received these shoes at a discounted price, and in no way did it influence my blog post.





CJHFAMILY Knife Sharpener for Straight Knives 3 Stage Diamond Coated Sharpening Wheel System, Cut-Resistant.

I was happy to receive the CJHFAMILY Knife Sharpener with a cut-resistant glove included.

I already have both items, but my girlfriend doesn’t have either.  This knife sharpener is slightly smaller than mine, but at a considerably cheaper price.

However, I have to say that the quality is good.  I took out some knives that I hadn’t used recently, and sharpened them.  For safety reasons you can put the glove on the hand, you are holding it with, but that really isn’t necessary.

The blades come up really well, and it is ‘designed to last a lifetime’.  Therefore you really can’t not buy it for the low price of just $10.99.  That is almost a third of the price of my other one.

Also being small is takes up less room, than many of the other brands.

The hand fits the grips perfectly.  I like the metal stand, and also the nonslip underneath to it.  Being black, and metal makes it look an elegant product..

I did receive mine at a discount, but feel that it is certainly worth the Amazon price.



Cellucor Whey Protein Isolate Powder with BCAAs, Post Workout Recovery Drink, Gluten Free Low Carb Low Fat, Molten Chocolate, 28 Servings


I have bought many whey protein powders over the years, and also been lucky enough to get discounted ones too.  I am pleased to say with the Cellucor Whey Protein Isolate Powder, is one of  the better ones.

The one I am using is the Molten Chocolate, but it also comes in other exciting flavors.  Most brands stick with vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate.  The container holds a net weight of 2.07 lb.  A serving of 2 scoops, gives you 28 servings, 24 grams of protein, 120 calories, and 5.25 grams of naturally occurring BCAAs’.  It is gluten free.

I have mine with fat free/skimmed milk, half a banana, and a teaspoon of Spirulina powder.  The banana makes it thicker, and it certainly tastes good.  I workout every morning, and this is always my lunch.  I never get bored with it, and really look forward to having one.

Next time I think I will get the Cookies and Cream flavor.  That sounds a perfect lunchtime pick me up.

It mixes really well, and can be added to cereal, dessert.  You can even cook with it.

I did receive mine at a discounted price, but Amazon have a really good price, compared to their competitors.


Fit Jab. The best weight lifting gloves I own.

I love the FIT JAB Weight Lifting Gym Gloves with wrist wraps. I have a titanium plate, steel rod, and 7 screws in my right wrist. With the really long wrist wraps I can now use these gloves when lifting, instead of wrapping my wrist.

From the Amazon webpage:

‘PERFECT FIT AND HIGH QUALITY: Fit Jab gym workout gloves made of high quality Palm Amara leather with the most comfortable knitted 4 way 100% cotton and Velcro closure,

lightweight material perfect for Men and Women.
EXTRA SUPPORT: Integrated Wrist Wraps to stabilize wrist joints for support when lifting weights ,definitely give you extra maximum support and results
DESIGN: Anti-Slip corrugated technology for a better grip, fingerless workout gloves are produced from fabric that is breathable, so less perspiration accumulates ,double security on gripping surface for better grip and prevent the slippage and injuries.’\
They give me enough support, and so much better than other gloves I have with shorter wrist wraps.
They are made of palm amara leather, cotton, and Velcro to secure them. They have a great grip too.  They truly work for me

I did receive mine at a discount, and wanted to let you know how great they are.


Vont 2 Pack LED Camping Lantern, Portable, Great Addition to: Survival Kits for Hurricane, Emergency, Storm, Outages, Outdoor Portable Lantern, Black, Collapsible, Battery Powered

I had a similar product about 18 months ago, and a couple of weeks ago a piece broke off of it, so it won’t work anymore.  I was delighted to get the  Vont 2 pack LED Camping Lantern.

First off I have to say how much I loved this type of lantern, when we had Hurricane Irma last year.  We were without power after the storm, and I had the lantern on the table next to me.  As it has handles, I was able to walk into other rooms with it.

This one is even better as you get 2 lanterns.  Come hurricane season, my husband can have one on his side table too.  The LEDs are really bright, and all you do is pull it up to work, and push the handles down to shut it off.

It takes 3 batteries that you put in the bottom of the lantern.  These are not included in the box.

I did receive mine at a discounted price, but would be willing to pay the $13.99 for 2 of these.
