EEZY Selfie Stick – Extendable Battery Free Handheld Lightweight Mono-pod with Built-in Remote Shutter

I have been looking at purchasing one of these for my kids since they are all about the selfies! After searching around for the right one, I was offered a discount on this one and figured why not check it out. So we did.

When it first arrived the kids were at school and I could hardly stand it so I went ahead and opened it up and wanted to try it all out.

In the box: the expandable stick, two mounts, mini tripod and a remote.

selfie stickThe first thing I did was hook it all up and see if the button on the selfie stick would actually work. It didn’t.. :(

I was bummed! I read through all the included instructions and followed them to a T. Still nothing. I ended up contacting the company to see what the heck was happening. They asked me what phone I was using, I told them, they confirmed that it was compatible and then walked me through the steps to make it work.

I was using the Samsung Galaxy Note3 and every time I pressed the button to take a photo it would just zoom in and out. That’s it. I was completely frustrated. After contacting them, they had me go into my CAMERA Settings, not regular settings as I wasn’t able to find what they were telling me to look for until I went into Camera, then settings.

So open Camera, Click on the settings button (Mine looks like a little gear wheel) When I clicked that it opened up a box. At the top of the box was a camera icon, video icon and another settings button. I clicked the second settings button and the third option said “Volume key”

When I click the option that said “Volume key”, it opened up another box with 3 choices: The zoom key (which was selected), the camera key and the record key. I switched it to CAMERA KEY and exited out of the settings.

I re-tried the camera button on the selfie stick and it worked. Perfectly!!

I am so glad I took the five minutes to contact the company! They were extremely helpful in helping walk me through this. I think they would be further ahead to add these types of directions to the included information card, or at least offer a site to find the information.

As for the bonus remote and stand. I have used the stand a couple times, but have not used the remote yet. You need to download an app to use the remote and I just have not taken the time to do so.

The bracket/mounts that are included in the kit fit my BIG Galaxy Note3 very snug and tight. So tight that the main bracket I broke while trying to take my phone out of it. The bigger one that is almost all plastic. Completely my fault. The other mount, which is about half the size of the main mount has a metal spring system and that one has had no issues.

The brackets/mounts attach to the selfie stick and the tripod via a standard screw attachment. The nice thing about the selfie stick is they included a dial that will tighten the bracket in place for you, so you can line it up exactly how you want it, then turn the dial to tighten it onto the selfie stick. There is another dial on the side that helps tighten your camera in place while picking the perfect angle.

The stick itself is made of a hollow metal rod that honestly does not feel that sturdy and feels like it could be bent easily or possibly break easily it not treated properly.

The selfie stick is a lot of fun to play around with. Would highly recommend to anyone who has been considering purchasing!

Off Grid Food Prep! Manual Food Processor w/ Salad Spinner!

~ Post Contains Affiliate Links ~

Multifunction Manual Food Processor w/ Salad Spinner!

The spin thing food processor really does make you prep happy. When first offered this for review I debated slightly as I wasn’t sure what use it would be to me. But now I know exactly what it will be for. Camping. How awesome to have a food processor for cooking in the wild. No electricity needed. Off grid living. Homesteading.. so many people would love one of these in their bug out gear for preppers.

manual food chopperThe draw string pulley system used to make this little machine work, is easy to pull. The tension is just tight enough to cause a fast spin and the release back is fast as well. This is perfect to help keep consistent movements needed for chopping, blending and mixing. Although if not paying attention can be a little painful on the knuckles if you don’t catch yourself on the back slide.
manual food chopper2I also love that it came with so many accessories. You get the chopping, cutting, slicing combo blades, you get a mini salad spinner bowl that fits inside the main container, you get a mixing wand. They have also included a snap on lid to make storing easy. But better yet it’s microwave safe and the lid has a slide cover vents for air release.

My package did not include any kind of instructions, and I kind of had to play around with it to figure it all out. It wasn’t hard and it was easy enough. There are no cords or plugs of any kind. All of the pieces are easily removable for clean up and washing.

Cheeva’s Perfect #Makeup Brush Set w/ #Free eBook!

~ Post Contains Affiliate Links ~

13 Piece Cosmetic Brushes w/ Free Makeup Tips & Tricks

I have bought so many brush sets for my daughter and nieces, and this is by far one of the nicest sets I have gotten. I received a steep discount on these brushes for my honest opinion and I have to say I actually did not expect them to be so nice. This is one product that I feel is definitely worth the purchase price.

This particular Make-Up set includes 13 different brushes, nestled inside a leather like roll up carry/travel case with tie closure.

The carrying case has the feel of a soft leather and has secure stitching through out the whole case. From the edges to each individual pocket the brushes fit into. The brushes fit nice and secure, but not so secure that you have trouble pulling them in and out. The color is more like a metallic pink/purple with a sheen to it.

Each brush was individually wrapped and tucked inside the carry case. Some of the bigger and wider brushes also came with an additional brush cover with a thicker type plastic that I assume is meant to be used when the brushes are not in use. I love this added protection.

CHEEVA Makeup Brush Set2
The brush handles feel like they are solid piece of lightweight wood. Not plastic or hollow metal. I love that they have wooden handles and personally feel that makes them a little more sturdy, and not heavy at all. The metal band that holds the brush fibers in place, is a solid piece of metal, crimped to hold the fibers in place. There is no seam on the metal that you have to worry about popping up or bending over or falling apart.

The 13pc Brushes Include:
1. Large Powder Brush
2. Medium Powder Brush
3. Foundation Brush
4. Large Shadow Brush
5. Medium Shadow Brush
6. Small Shadow Brush
7. Fan Brush
8. Rounded Liner Brush
9. Flat Liner Brush
10. Thin Liner Brush
11. Smudge Sponge Brush
12. Dual Eyelash/Brow Combo Brush
13. Brow/Mascara Swirled Brush

The only con I see with this product is that they did not include washing instructions for the brushes. They mention in the description that they are easy to clean, but not how. Since the brush fibers are a synthetic material and not real hair fibers I would think there are certain brush cleaners you should not use, but I don’t know. Brushes that are maintained and cleaned correctly can last a really long time. The quality of these brushes are amazing and I personally feel the life of them could be extended with proper cleaning.

CHEEVA Makeup Brush Set**UPDATE**
I received an email from the seller with information on how to clean and care for your brushes. I just wanted to update my listing to reflect that information as I find it useful and maybe someone else would also! :)

Wash your face brushes at least once a week to avoid bacteria buildup.
Wondering how to deep clean your brushes? You can do it in 3 easy steps!

1. For brushes that have been used to apply liquid products (foundation, concealer, gel eyeliner), first rub the bristles in some olive oil to loosen up the product.
2. Wash off the olive oil and follow up with a dime-sized amount of baby shampoo. Keep rubbing the bristles in the shampoo until the water runs clear.
3. Squeeze out any excess water from the bristles and leave them out to dry brush side down so that the water falls to the top rather than the bottom (the latter could loosen the glue that holds the brush and the handle together).
*** END UPDATE ***

One recommendation: I would love to see the name of the brush type on the handle. This set is very eye appealing and I would see many girls just starting out learning about makeup getting a set like this for a gift. Having the type of brush it is, imprinted on the handle, would allow them the opportunity to learn and explore many different make up techniques, tips and tricks easier if they are not confused with which type of brush they are or should be using!

50% OFF ~ Grill Beast Stainless Steel Meat Injector Kit

~ Post Contains Affiliate Links ~

Grill Beast Stainless Steel Meat Injector Kit

One of my favorite things to do is cook. I love it. I don’t, however like the clean up. But who does? Anyways, I am not a chef, nor do I have any kind of training, aside from watching my parents and grandparents cook. Being from a huge family, learning cooking tips and tricks is always beneficial for us. Recently my sister and I were both able to try out a new grilling gadget. The Grill Beast Meat Injector. That just sounds aggressive doesn’t it. lol

We are going to start sharing our reviews with you. Now you will receive two opinion. And let me tell you, sometimes we agree and sometimes we absolutely do not. This is one of those times where we both love the product!

Kelli:

The stainless steel food injector arrived packaged extremely well. Each piece was nested inside it’s own compartment of a heavy-duty foam square. The needles of the injector have sharp tips and being nestled in the foam help keep it from piercing through the packaging. However the sections the needles were in were slightly to deep in my opinion. If somebody were not thinking about it they could possibly cut their finger trying to pull the needles out. When I first attempted to remove them I reached for the non sharp section which just pushed down into the foam further. It then pushed the sharp end up sort of like teeter tottering style. Not thinking I instantly grabbed for it and felt the sharp poke immediately which made me stop. But had I just been absent minded when grabbing for it, it could have been a little dangerous. I didn’t even realize how sharp the tips were. The sharp tips are perfect for piercing through meats easily. You will not have to struggle to use the injector.

The syringe has plastic seals to keep your marinade inside the chamber and reduce or eliminate leaks and spills. I also love that they included replacement seals for both the main syringe and one extra for the needles.

One of the needles has and opened end with a slant cut opening. The other needles has a pointed closed end but the length of the needle has small holes scattered across the length.

Each of the pieces separate for easy cleaning. This food injector also includes and eBook with grilling recipes. They included a card with the site and password to receive your eBook. I am very glad I opted in to review this item. I am looking forward to raising the bar on our BBQing and grilling.

 

Misti:

The Grill Best Injector definitely lives up to its name!
This injector has some serious weight to it. But the rings are nicely sized for the fingers to hold and depress when ready.
The stainless steel food injector arrived very well packaged . Each piece has its own space inside the heavy duty foam.
The needles of the injector have sharp tips so keep inside the foam until you are ready to use.
This is not a device you want anywhere near small children or even teens who would want to play around.
The sharp tips are perfect for piercing through meats easily…any meat including yourself so be careful.
I did manage to poke myself due to being distracted and not paying attention–my fault.
I think a silicon tip on the end would be a nice addition to stop people like me from accidentally catching themselves.
The needles have a screw threading to the main syringe.
The syringe has seals to keep your fluid–marinades, juice, etc. inside the chamber and reduce potential leaks.
They also included replacement seals for both the main syringe and another for the needles.

The injector housing and the needles do come apart for easy cleaning.
This food injector also includes an ebook with grilling recipes.
I am very glad I was able to purchase the Grill Beast during the promotional sale and offer my observations and opinion.
Overall a GREAT buy and would definitely recommend.
