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.

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.

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.

Birthstone Necklace Review

Birthstone Necklace by Western Frontier Review

Birthstone Necklace Color Pendant

Western Frontier

My birthstone is sapphire. So naturally, I chose the vivid blue sapphire as my birthstone necklace on the listing. I want to start by saying, this is more a choker than a necklace. When I think of a necklace, I think of something that drapes down and at least goes a little bit past my collar bone.

The Amazon listing does have all 12 months listed (although they are in alphabetical, not chronological order). It comes in 2 other colors besides the birthstones, aurora boreal and vitrial medium. Both are stones that change color depending on the lighting.

Birthstone Necklace by Western Frontier Review

The birthstone necklace that I received, September is very pretty in my opinion. It also has a hefty weight to it. I was expecting this necklace to be dainty and frail, but no, this necklace fills up a good portion of my palm and feels very solid.

Birthstone Necklace by Western Frontier Review

The chain that the necklace comes with is as I said, more a choker length than a necklace length. I do like the chain though, except for one little part. The chain link that is in the back, that is supposed to help keep the back of the necklace in the back (I don’t know the correct terminology) has a little bit of a snag. It was a pretty easy fix, but one of the links look liked it was not supposed to be there. It had been clipped yet was still attached to the chain, causing two little points to jut from it. I found it easy enough to remove but I just wanted to caution on it before you wear it, it can be a bit prickly if you happen to have one with an extra little bit of link that should have been removed.

Birthstone Necklace by Western Frontier Review

Overall, it is a very beautiful birthstone necklace. It has a hefty weight to it, and it is a decent size. The chain is more choker length than necklace length. I do definitely recommend this, the September necklace that I received is absolutely gorgeous and pictures do not do it justice.

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.

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

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.

Zubels for the Holidays Review

Zubels for the Holidays Review

.These toys from Zubels are so cute. The knit is extremely tight and even on them, I was really impressed. The label that comes with it says 100% hand knit, and that honestly shocks me. I know I would never be able to knit this tightly, nor this evenly. I’m lucky if I can knit anything at all! This is very soft and lightweight, a perfect cuddle buddy. I really am impressed with this, it is perfect way to have a toy soldier during the holidays with little ones without worrying about it shattering.

I did receive three little toys from Zubels. There is a red toy soldier, a miniature Santa, and a reindeer. The toy soldier and the reindeer are about the same size, and a very good size for what would normally be called a doll. The Santa on the other hand fits in the palm of my hand. Santa feels like he weighs the most though, he definitely is the most solid feeling of the bunch. The toy soldier and the reindeer move freely and feel very lightweight.

Even after my twins played with them for hours, every single one of them still looked amazing. They did get a little dirty but cleaning them up was a cinch.

I really am impressed by these toys by Zubels, they are cute and positively perfect! Perfect for the holidays but also as a year around toy, because what little kid doesn’t like playing with toy soldiers and reindeer? These definitely were made to last.

You can check out this on their website HERE. There is definitely a lot more selection to Zubels than the 3 products that I showed!

Christmas Mug Review

Bright Red Happy Santa Christmas Mug

.

This is a super adorable Christmas mug. The colors are bright and vivid, standing out, one against another. The lines feel like they are etched on, you can feel the black outline of Santa as you run your finger across this.

This comes in a very cute and quaint little package, the colors make it seem like something from when my parents were little. Warm, welcoming and it really just has an older, many years ago look to it.

The Christmas mug itself is medium sized, I would recommend if you use a k-cup machine to use the medium setting. That seems to work best for me.

There is one Santa on each side of the mug, which is a bonus for someone like me, who is left-handed. I usually don’t get to enjoy decorated mugs because they tend to cater to the right-handed world. This allows me though to see jolly ol’ Saint Nick himself as I’m sipping a cup of hot cocoa.

This mug does seem to be a regular mug with a beautiful and vibrant etched Santa on a red background with white snowflakes falling. This is quickly becoming my favorite mug to reach out for, especially as the holidays grow closer and the days grow colder.

Overall, yes I do really like this mug, it is the perfect mug to sip out of, especially when drinking hot cocoa, which is a favorite holiday drink that brings warmth and feelings of happiness.

You can check out this on Amazon HERE.
