Lace Wrappers for Cupcakes Review

Lace Cupcake Wrappers Review (aerial view)

Cupcake Lace Wrappers 100 Filigree Artistic Bake Cake Paper Cups

Sold By: Winnerbuy

These are some pretty cute cupcake wrappers. I would suggest using a little bit thicker wrapper while baking, such as a silicone cupcake wrapper. The lace wrappers had a hard time wrapping around cupcakes that I had used paper wrappers on, versus the silicone ones. My favorite way to use the lace wrappers though is pictured below, where I used a silicone mold of a paw print to make some cupcakes with leftover batter. They were such a hit that I made some for a dog loving friend of mine for their birthday.

Lace Cupcake Wrappers Review (aerial view)

They are pretty easy to use. The wrappers do seem to be best wrapped one way versus another, it pops apart pretty quickly if you go the wrong way. The wrappers helped keep the paw prints from sticking to each other, but the cupcakes did not stick to the lace wrappers.

Lace Cupcake Wrappers Review (side view)

Overall, I have been pretty pleased with these. They arrive flat and laid out nicely, although it is pretty simple to pop them up toe the lace wrappers that they can be.

Amazing Reef Coloring Book Review

Aquarium Depot – The Amazing Reef Coloring Book Volume 1

By: Christina Duncan

The pictures in this Amazing Reef coloring book are absolutely gorgeous. Not only do the pictures have an abundance of lines to make intricate designs, but the designs are actually photographs that have been washed away so that the individual can dictate what colors go where.

Amazing Reef Coloring Book

The coloring book has pictures on one side of the paper and blank on the other, so you do not have to worry about the coloring from one picture show through on another.

The Amazing Reef coloring book itself is pretty thin, but it definitely has enough to keep someone entertained for hours, especially if they follow all the little tiny details that fill the pages.

The pages themselves are not the thickest pieces of paper in the world, but they do well even when applying pressure with my colored pencils. I showed the coloring book blank in my video, but it was very hard not diving right in (pun intended) to the ocean filled pictures.

I definitely like this little coloring book. It does not hold a lot of pages, but each page has a lot of attention to detail. It’s cute and I would recommend it for the ocean loving people out there.

Face Paint Kit For Professional Adults

By: RainbowGlow

This post is going to be a little unusual. I am starting right off the bat that this is not a complete post. I plan on updating with another video, so that there are two, yes two, videos for the RainbowGlow face and body paint. I wanted to go over right now the paint itself and how it is presented. I will update in a few days when I get over my fever and feel ok to show my face again.

RainbowGlow Face and Body Paint Review

Included in this set are several paints, a brush, instructions, aaand… Glitter! Yes there is glitter in this. The shiny foil square on the right of the paints is actually glitter. Do not investigate this unless you want to get glitter everwhere when you open the foil for the first time.

The paints themselves are very bold and vibrant. It does not take a lot to get them to apply to the skin. Just a bit of water and in the paint square and you’re good to go. Cleanup is also a breeze, since all you need is some soap and water. Nothing extremely complicated about using it or cleaning up. I haven’t noticed any staining of my skin while using this, but I have not had it very long. When I update this, I will wear it for an elongated time and see what the results are. I hope you follow this in a few days, I would love to know your thoughts!

Fuzion Cookware Flavor Injectors – Large Size

By: Fuzion Cookware

This is such a cute little set of flavor injectors by Fuzion Cookware. The injectors actually look like mini pipettes.

The suction on the flavor injectors is not the strongest in the world, it does take a squeeze or two sometimes to get the desired amount of liquid into the bulb of the injector. I will recommend, if you are doing something that is smaller, such as cupcakes, to do less liquid, you do not want a runny mess.

Fuzion Flavor Review

If you are going for decoration, they definitely work as such.

The small mouths of the injectors make it easy to add liquids to baked goods, with very little evidence to there ever being an injector there in the first place.

Overall, I definitely think this is a cute little bag of flavor injectors by Fuzion Cookware. If you are in the market for something like this, I definitely recommend them.

Prextex Easter Eggs Review

Prextex Easter Eggs Review

Prextex Easter Eggs filled with Wind Up Toys And Easter Candy

By: Prextex

Sold By: Kids To discover

The presentation of these little eggs is definitely cute. They have the “Hoppity surprise” on the front, with the toys visible, nestled atop the little bags of candy. Prextex Easter eggs are a perfect little gift for a young one to receive. It comes packaged in a little egg so it is all ready for Easter egg hunting. It is easy enough to open the eggs to get to the toy inside. Also, the little bag of candy is sealed apart from the toy, so no issues of the toy getting sticky even in warmer weather.

Prextex Easter Eggs Review

The contents of the egg are pretty simple. The toy sits atop the bag of candy. The bag of candy is sealed, holding a small handful of hard Easter shaped candies. The toy itself is a simple windup toy that hops around in a random manner, certainly not in a straight line.

Prextex Easter Eggs Review

Overall, I think the Prextex Easter eggs are a cute way to give a little one several cute hopping toys, and a small portion of candy. The packaging and the eggs themselves are vibrant and colorful, as are the toys and the candy inside. The candy is packaged in its own little bag so there is no worry of the toy getting sticky due to the candy. I like the variety of toys that come with this, there are two rabbits that I received and a chick, meaning this would work for both boys and girls.

I do definitely recommend this, it is absolutely adorable and my twins went nuts over the little toys (although due to their age parents’ kept the little candies to themselves).

Tissue Paper-Craft Paper-Colored Paper Larger-19 2/3″ X 29 1/2″-Heavier Thicker (21GSM)-More colors 25 vibrant colors-100 Sheets Paper Crafts Pack in Bulk-Gift Wrap

By: Aspicio Products

Sold By: Redsigben

Colored Paper Review

This is some pretty solid colored paper. Included in this one small package is 25 colors and 100 total sheets of colored paper. It is sized at 29 3/2″ X 19 1/2″, which means it is perfect for using as stuffing in a gift bag, or to even wrap smaller presents.

Each sheet is pretty durable and allows for a lot more force to be applied than I was expecting. It does still get the rumpled look when used as gift wrapping, but it is definitely durable enough to be able to be used as such.

Personally, I like using bags and fluffing up the rest of the bag with this paper. Still no tearing, but the crinkly and fluffy aspect of the paper is ripe for filling in all that extra space and adding flair to a bag.

Overall, I have enjoyed using this colored paper and as of right now, would definitely recommend it. I always seem to have some event that I need to wrap a gift for, so having this on hand to quickly wrap something or add a little bit of flair to a gift bag is extremely nice.

LED Lights Review

LED Lights Review

I love how easy this was to set up. No batteries or anything extremely complicated. Below this, what you see is what you get. You get the LED lights strand, a way to plug into an outlet, and each come in a separate thing. The lights came in the white bag, the power cord in the box. Both were inside a nondescript brown box.

What I thought was really cool about this, is the fact that the lights can be hung up, and the power cord plugged into the wall, and the lights will not instantly be lit up. This is nice for hard to reach outlets, because having to pull out the power cord whenever I want lights off would not be very feasible with some of them. The way to turn the lights on and off is to attach the plug from the lights to the end of the power cord. It slides in easily enough, and you can do it one-handed.

LED Lights Review

The lights themselves come very tightly coiled, and I rather like the effect when they are plugged in like this. It also looks like a crown with lights (if my head were that small, I might just have tried to wear it!). In all seriousness though, it does put off a pretty beautiful display even when all coiled up.

LED Lights Review

The LED lights all check out, when I uncoiled it and strung it around, I inspected each and every light. They all shined brightly, even in a lit room.

Overall, yes I would definitely recommend these, they have been a beautiful addition to my lighting, and it certainly creates a warm glow to a room.

Plush Easter by Prextex Review

Plush Easter Basket, Bunny, Egg, and Chick

By Prextex

This is a super soft plush Easter basket. The basket itself is attached to the large and fluffy rabbit. Inside the basket is a soft duck and an egg. The egg is nestled between the wings of the duck on its back. Definitely a cute little set to give as a gift to someone, especially for someone like my twins who are a little bit younger. I could not resist and gave it to them before Easter, and it has been a huge hit. Stuffed anything is all the rage for my twins right now, and they let me know if I take a stuffed animal away too soon!

Below is the entire set, the rabbit with the basket, the duck and the egg.

Below is a view from the top to try and show how the duck has the egg nestled on its back.

Below is the rabbit and the basket by itself. This would make a good prop for if you wanted to have something else inside the basket, for the duck and the egg are fine standing up on their own.

Plush Easter by Prextex Review

Below is the duck, probably the least “plush” part of this set, and still incredibly soft.

Plush Easter by Prextex Review

Next, below is the egg. It didn’t want to stand up totally on its own, so I have it lying on its side.

Plush Easter by Prextex Review

Overall, a very cute plush Easter set, I know my twins have really enjoyed it, and it certainly is a great alternative to getting a real duck, or rabbit. Especially for the younger kids, such as mine, who are nowhere near that sort of responsibility yet.

I definitely do recommend this, very cute, and I just might get another before Easter hits so they can both have a set.

Tripod Flashlight Review

Tripod Flashlight Review

I think the execution of the tripod flashlight is a little bit weird. It certainly is a neat idea, it just looks a little bit odd.

The flashlight attaches to the tripod on the rear end of the flashlight. There is a little area that is screwed into the tripod base. If you remove the rear end, that is where the batteries go into the flashlight, which it uses 3 AAA batteries to power the flashlight. After the cap is screwed back into place, the button on the back allows for ease of use turning the flashlight on and off.

Once the flashlight is screwed to the base of the tripod, then there is a flat disk that can be moved up to sit snugly against the flashlight, securing it and helping to steady it.

The legs of the tripod are very bendable and flexible. This makes it an ideal little tool for working say under a car, where you do not want to use one hand to hold a flashlight and the other trying to do the work two hands are usually required for. It also allows for in general, if you need a light but want to do something with both of your hands.

Would I recommend this? Overall, yes. While it does look awkward, I would recommend this, because it allows for light to shine into places that need that light, without using a hand to direct the beam there to do so.

Mobile Double Sided Whiteboard Review

Mobile Whiteboard Review

.

The mobile double sided whiteboard on wheels by Superior Essentials is perfect for learning the alphabet with younger children, or even just brainstorming ideas for a project. I like to use this when I am making lists, or trying to organize something. The double sided aspect of the whiteboard allows me to do that. I want to cover the whiteboard itself, from installation, to use, the magnetic aspect as well as the fact that the whiteboard is double sided. I also want to briefly touch on the customer service given by Superior Essentials.

Mobile Whiteboard Review

The Whiteboard Itself

Installation of the Whiteboard

The whiteboard overall was very easy to set up. Included with the whiteboard is a list of what should be in the box, as well as a paper with picture instructions on how to put the whiteboard together. This whiteboard comes with every single thing you would need to set it up, it even includes a little wrench and screw drivers. I definitely would recommend having two people set this up, it goes a lot easier when there are two sets of hands stabilizing it. Everything went really well together, except for the tray. The tray is directional, you will want to put the side of the tray that stick out on the side of the beam that has the Superior Essentials logo. I also want to mention, when you are peeling the protective layer off the whiteboard, it can cause quite the shock. My finger was numb from the shock that the static generated.

Mobile Whiteboard Review

Using the Whiteboard

The whiteboard is really easy to use. It is an easy surface to write on, although I would recommend steadying it on the side with your hand when you are writing. Erasing, same thing, steady it with your hand on the side. It does wipe down pretty easily, even if the dry erase marker has been up there for a few days. It actually seems to erase better if I have let it sit for an hour or so before wiping off (although, it isn’t much different writing and then immediately wiping it off).

Mobile Whiteboard Review

The Whiteboard is Magnetic

I love that this whiteboard is magnetic. My erasers that I use look like mice (the kind that you click with on a computer), and they are too large for the tray. Being that I can stick an eraser on either side makes it easy to flip the board since it has a little more weight on it (although not much). This also makes it a nice way to use my magnetic alphabet letters that I got for learning the alphabet with my twins, I don’t have to have the letters on the refrigerator in the kitchen which makes the twins that much less likely to actually BE in the kitchen when they are not supposed to.

Mobile Whiteboard Review

The Whiteboard is Double Sided

This is a really nice thing for me. I can have say magnets on one side and writing on the other. Or I can use one side of the whiteboard for my own brainstorming ideas or lists and the other side can be for the twins. There are so many ways to use the duel sides, and it is incredibly easy to switch between the sides. You would just need to press down on the black piece in the middle of the support beam that is in the middle of the frame, and it will rotate around almost on its own. I would recommend having it flip so the front of the board goes around on the top, it seems to latch easier from that direction, although it does latch the other way as well (you just need to either apply enough of a swing or force on the black piece in the middle).

Mobile Whiteboard Review

Customer Service

I want to include a little portion on the customer service given to me by Superior Essentials. I was blown away with how prompt the seller was at responding to my questions, and when I had an issue with a couple of screws going missing (they are very unique screws), they sent them out to me and provided the tracking so that I could see when the replacement pieces would arrive. I was also told that they would be securing the boards with an extra precaution during shipping so that others who were to order would hopefully not ever have the same issue again. The seller Superior Essentials went above and beyond in my opinion, and I have been thoroughly impressed by their actions.

Mobile Whiteboard Review

Where Can You Find this Whiteboard?

You can check out this whiteboard on Amazon HERE.

Verdict

Yes, I definitely would recommend this. From ordering to set up to using, this has been an amazing experience and I think this would be perfect in almost any home that has the room for it.
