ACRAFT Thanksgiving Decoration Twinkle Star String Lights for Bedroom Girls Gift 10 Led 7.1ft Home Decoration Lights for Baby Shower Wedding Teen Tee Pee

There are so many pretty string lights to choose from, for many different occasions, so I couldn’t wait to check out the ACRAFT Thanksgiving Twinkle Star String Lights.

These are so different to any others I have seen.  Not only are they star shape, but they have cut out stars, to show the light through.  The color of the star lights is silver, and there ten of them.  The individual stars, have twelve tiny cut out stars, that show the light through them.

Specifications are from the Amazon webpage:
‘Total Length (end to end): 7.1 ft
Lead Length: 1.15ft
Diameter of Star: 0.26ft
Bulb Count: 10
Bulb Spacing: 0.66ft
Bulb Type: LED
Grade of Waterproof: IP44(not battery box)
Power Source: Battery Powered
Power: 3AA Battery (not included)
Material: Metal, Copper wire, Plastic
Light Mode: Steady on
Colors of Balls: Silver white ‘.

They are battery operated, and you will need 3 AA batteries, which are not included.  These go into the clear box, and you just click the black light across to switch them on.  This would be great for a little one’s bedtime.  You could switch them on when they got into bed, and turn them off before your bedtime.

With it coming up for Christmas these lights would be great around a window.  I personally would put them inside, as the battery case isn’t waterproof.

I can think of endless places to put these, including a party on the patio.  Wouldn’t it be great to see the stars.

I did receive these pretty lights for free, and have been honest, in my review of them.

Sogrand Solar Lights Outdoor Wall Mount Decorative Pathway Light Black Friday Deal Sale Outdoor LED Bronze Lamp for Christmas Decorations. 2 Pack

Now that the nights are drawing in, it’s nice to have extra security, around our home.  The Sogrand Wall Mount Bronze Lamp Solar Lights are perfect for this.

These couldn’t be more simple to use.  I put them out in the sunlight yesterday, and allowed them to charge up.  This evening I flipped the red switch, at the back, over to the ON position, and they are working great.

They have a soft, yellow light to them, and almost look like antique.  They make me think of Christmas, and the Dicken’s era.

They have 2 holes at the back, with the screws etc., to put them on a wall, door, fence, patio, or where ever you want to place them.

The cost is only $13.99, which I think it a great price, for your home, or to give as a Christmas/holiday gift.

A little from the Amazon webpage:

The solar light is designed to withstand a wide range of weather conditions, including rain, snow, wind, and hot or cold temperatures.

  • These solar outdoor lights are powered by a solar charged AA battery that is user replaceable.  This saves your electricity bills
  • Turns on automatically when it gets dark outside. Enjoy LED Solar Lighting from dusk to dawn.’

I did receive these lights for free, and thought my readers may wish to buy them for the holidays.

KevenAnna Pair of Premium Professional 2-way Wooden Shoe Trees, Wooden Shoe Stretcher for Men or Women (Large)

The KevenAnna Premium Professional 2-way Wooden Shoe Trees are so much nicer, and easier to use, that all the ways my mother tried to stretch our shoes 55-60 years ago.  In England, we had very little money when I was young, and my mother would try to stretch our shoes to last another few months.

Now I don’t have to do that, but do have shoes that pinch, or are not wide enough for me.  I have had surgeries on my feet, and bones removed from my big toes.

These are so easy to use, and come with a one page instructional guide, with diagrams.  My feet vary in size, and one is a half size bigger than the other one.  I either have one shoe slightly loose, or one that pinches my toes.

So I put the wooden shoe tree in the shoe, and screwed it enough to stretch it slightly.  I left it in for 24 hours, and then removed it.  Very straight forward.

I have to say that the shoe

fits me so much better now.  My worrying about buying shoes won’t be a problem in the future.

A little from the Amazon webpage:


Your New Two-Way Shoe Stretcher Enables You to STRETHCH Both the Length & Width of a left or right shoe.
For Spot Stretching, simply insert any of the removable ‘Bunion & Corn’ Plugs in the appropriate holes where relief is required.

Turn plastic handle Clockwise to adjust length.
Continue to turn plastic handle Clockwise until you begin to see surface pressure showing on the shoe. DO NOT OVERSTRETCH!
Turn metal looped handle in a Clockwise direction until you begin to see surface pressure showing on the shoe. DO NOT OVERSTRETCH!

FOR BEST RESULTS, leave Stretcher in place for at least 24 hours. To REMOVE Stretcher, turn handles Counterclockwise.’

These are good for teenagers, and all the adults in your family.  A product you may not use every day, but useful when you do need it.

I received this product for free, and found it worked great, so wanted to share it with you.

ACRAFT Gift Turquoise Teal Blue Boys String Lights for Teen Bedroom Battery Operated 10Led 7.1ft Cotton Balls Lights with White Wire for Tee Pee

Although the ACRAFT Turquoise Teal Blue Sting Lights are for boys, I honestly think that these are great for any room you wish to relax in.  Perfect if you are nursing a baby, a baby’s room, a bathroom, or bedroom.

I feel that they give a room serenity, and peace.  The white and turquoise are so pretty together, and the white wire between them, blends in well.

I can imagine relaxing in the bathtub, and having these hanging around a mirror, or piece of white furniture

.  Sometimes our only relaxing time, as women, is when we are taking a bath, or shower.

They are attached to a clear box, with an on/off switch.  You need to put 3 AA batteries in them, which are not included.  This allows you to use them in any part of your home, or at a baby shower.  From the Amazon webpage:

I do have 2 or 3 USB Chargers, but have to say that I am impressed with the iLepo 8 – Port USB Charger with LCD Display Charging.

This one has 8 ports, and is compact.  I have a travel one that is tiny, but only has 4.  I also have a big one with 4, and another one that has 6.

As we both use our smartphones all day long, both of our laptops, and my husband’s tablet, it great to have one charger for all of them.  Also I have desktop lamps, lanterns, voice recorders, smartwatches, protein shake blender,

and so many more small electronics that use the USB chargers.

This smart charger has so many great features, and rather than put a couple in, this is from the Amazon webpage:

This gives me a worry free charging station, that is capable of taking care of my USB appliances/phones etc.  I am very happy with it.  The iLepo charger was provided free of charge to me.  It is not influence me in the review I have provided of it.


THINKIDEA LED Desk Lamp with USB Charging Port Eye-Caring Bedside Reading Light Office lamp with 3 Color Temperatures & 6 Dimmable Levels, Touch Control, 360°Adjustable( Gold)

All I can say if ‘WOW’ when I look at the THINKIDEA LED Desk Lamp.  It is so elegant.

I have taken several photos, and also a video, so that you can see how easy it is to use, and adjust.  It has a Power Switch on the base, and the 6 dimable levels on the black area, at the front bottom.  You can also touch the lamp as well, to change the temperatures.

I had it next to my bed, and even over the headboard.  It worked great in both places.

It was charged up by using the USB cable for 3 hours, and that will allow it to work anywhere from 3 – 30 hours, depending on how bright it is.

I have 3 other desk lamps, and they will be in the office, or other areas of the house.  This is my relaxing light that I will use prior to sleeping.  It will ease me into the mode.

I did receive this item for free, and am so thankful, as this has to be one of my favorite products.

Voltas Therapeutic Himalayan Salt Lamp help us to relax, and sleep.

My husband has difficulty sleeping, especially when we are away from home.  The one thing that really helps is a Himalayan Salt Lamp.  I have one, but wanted a second one, so was really happy to receive the Voltas Lamp.

It is hand carved and can vary in size from 9 to 11 inches.  The weight is between 8 and 11 lbs.  It has a 6 foot UL listed dimmer cord, and already has a bulb in the lamp, and an extra replacement one.

The lamp is really well packaged, so that it arrives in tact.  Once unwrapped, just plug it in, and it is ready.  Turn the dimmer switch, and the light shows through the rock.  It can be barely on, or you can keep turning the wheel, to have it really bright.  We have it about halfway, and that is perfect for my husband to relax, and sleep.  This light doesn’t bother me, like a white, or soft white light would.

From the Amazon webpage:

UNCOMPROMISED PREMIUM QUALITY: Only 10% of the 1000’s of Salt Rock Crystals are hand selected from the Rock Salt boulders mined 500 meters below grounds of the Magnificent Himalayan Mountains, only salt crystals with the best clarity, shape, and color purity are hand carved ensuring natural rock of the highest quality. This Exotic Salt lamp offers better light transmittance, less specks & spotting. Each & every Salt Crystal Lamp is unique and you will receive one similar to the images shown.

HOLISTIC HEALTH: The Himalayan Salt Lamp works to enhance the ionic balance of your living spaces and can have remarkable effects on your mood and energy. When heated Salt Crystal Lamp emits negative ions that fight against electromagnetic radiation and fights fatigue and sluggishness. The naturally ionized air also helps you sleep better at night, allowing you to wake refreshed, breathe smoother, and soothe allergies’.

I really love this lamp.  The wooden base stand firmly on the carpet, which is on my husband’s side.  All I get to see is the amber glow.  It gives sufficient light, allowing us to go to the bathroom.

We are going away for a short break

, and I am taking this lamp with me.  That’s how much I like it.

I received this product for free, and have really tested it, before writing my review.


Miserwe Essential Oil Diffuser 550ML Aromatherapy Diffuser with Adjustable Mist Mode

I really love all my Essential Oil Diffusers, and have them everywhere.  Not only do they make the house smell good, but I enjoy the changing colors, when in use.  I wanted the Miserwe Essential Oil Diffuser as it has a different shape to the other ones.

It has triangle shapes on it, whereas my others are oval, or circular, getting smaller near the top.  It has 7 color changes, or you can keep it on your favorite one.  You can set it to one of the time modes, or just have it running.  When the set time is up,

it will auto shut off, or if the water runs dry, again it will shut itself down.

Just by adding a few drops of your favorite essential oil, it will create this colored mist, that fills the room.  I have most of the essential oils, but tend to stick to my favorites, unless I have a cold, or headache, and then I choose the relaxing ones.

The Miserwe Essential Oil Diffuser comes with:
1* Adapter
1* Measuring cup
1* User Manual

It will last up to 10 hours on one fill.

I am very happy with this diffuser, and was planning on giving it to a friend for Christmas.  However, I don’t want to part with it.  I did receive this item for free, and as you can see by my review, really love it.

ADORNEVE Women Sexy Christmas Lace Strap Babydoll Red Lingerie

20171103_150649My husband needn’t buy me a Christmas present this year, as I have the Adorneve Women Sexy Christmas Lace Babydoll.  Come to think of it, I reckon this is his Christmas present too, if you get my meaning.

I do love feminine lingerie, and this certainly is.  I feel like an actress acting out a roll in it.  The top part is exactly like a bra with the adjustable straps, and the hook and eyes at the back.  The bra is firm, and not see-through, but soft enough to be very comfortable.

The lace is see-through, and has a pretty floral pattern.   At the front it comes down to the tops of my legs, which is halfway down my bottom.  It comes with a g-string pantie.

The material is cotton, and polyester on the Amazon page, and nylon and polyester on the label.  I personally think it is nylon, by the feel of the material.

From the webpage:

  • ‘The babydoll is featured by a half cup neck, pleated hem and a cute bow tie between the cup, the sheer lace is sexy and close to your body
  • Care: hand wash and hang to dry for best result, machine wash cold ,tumble dry low’.

We will be on vacation at Christmastime so I am certainly packing, and taking this with me.  I did receive mine for free, it’s so cute, and perfect for me.
