Life has been very busy lately and we haven’t been able to explore around town as much as we like. I’ve decided to start a weekly update post. We want to stay in touch with our readers. We want to recap our previous week and then glance ahead to what we have coming in the next week.
Last week we posted about two products: The Original Tweak Strainer and the Aeneontrue Frog Button Hooded Coat. I also created a post on my Top 10 Apps to Make or Save you $Money$. You can click on the article title above if you missed it and would like to go back and read them. I think out of the 2 products I really love the coat but the arms are very tight. I also have larger arms so I’m not (cough, cough) “standard size.” If you like easy ways to make or save money be sure to check out the list of apps I use.
Next week and going forward expect to see a pattern to the articles we release. Every week we will try to include a list of apps or a review of a singular app. We will also have 2-3 posts that are reviews of products, services, or places. I recently ordered some interesting things online including a new silk boho dress, neon dry erase markers for my black goals board, cloth pads (with charcoal liners), bath bomb molds, mustard seed oil. We also have 2 products to review that we already have: stretchable lace camisole, Mind Reader “Hero” 36 pod drawer system, and Skidders slippers. I also have a new laptop on the way.

If you haven’t experienced VR (Virtual Reality) you are missing out! Rufo introduced me to this awesome new affordable technology using his Occulus VR headset. After trying out his much more expensive headset I decided to try a more affordable one of my own.
This headset offers a very affordable VR experience. It works with Google Cardboard and other VR applications. I’m currently using a Note 4 in this device.
In order to game better I also purchased a small Bluetooth gaming remote. If you plan on gaming I would recommend purchasing one of those as well.
The apps worked well in the headset, it was easy to adjust the vision and it fit nicely on my head. I was able to use it for a few days before I accidentally smudged a lens. I went to carefully clean the lens with a soft cloth and immediately with the lightest pressure the lenses popped out of their placement.
It was nearly impossible to get them back in place. Because of the design the headset is impossible to open. I had to craft some tools to put the lenses back in place. I’m sure that there are permanently fingerprints on the lenses.

Rating Explanation: Due to assembly needed and that it fell apart easily and I had to re-assemble it.
*Update (12/27/16) – For some reason the plastic piece embedded in the suction cup broke off. I was able to super glue it back together. I’m going to contact the seller on Amazon. I will update my review with the results.
So far I’m in love with this cellphone holder for in my vehicle. It’s Red and black (my favorite colors) and it holds my phone perfectly while I drive. When you first take it out of the box it requires a little assembly and be careful not to push on the release/hold lever too hard or it will come apart.
For about 20 minutes I thought I had completely broken this neat little gadget. I finally managed to get the pieces back together and it back to an operational state.
It was easy to install and use. You simply choose where you would like it to hang from your window, place the suction cup on the window, and lower the lever. The lowering of the lever creates a suction effect and allows the cellphone holder to adhere to the window.
Since properly installing about 3 weeks ago it has not fallen off of the window. A few times my phone fell out of the holder. This may be due to the product or to user error when placing the phone in the cradle. There are 2 bottom pegs to rest the base of the phone on. It also features two wings that expand by pressing on a button on the back of the holder.
When placing the phone in the holder be sure the wings are fully extended, hold the phone in place while resting it on the bottom pegs and squeeze the wings together to hold the phone firmly. When removing the phone press on the button on the middle back of the holder until the wings are fully extended and then remove your phone.
I admit it can be a bit distracting to have my phone in my field of vision but if my first reaction is to look at the phone when it makes noise it is better to be in front of me than beside me. It’s a great safe way to drive hands-free.
Unfortunately the holder came crashing down randomly. The plastic piece in the suction cup broke from the other piece. I do really like this cellphone holder so I super glued it back together. I attempted to contact the seller but there was no response.
