Plastic-Coated Playing Cards by Brybelly & Bingo Markers by Royal Bingo Supplies

Today I am reviewing these two gaming items. I am not an avid card player by any means but I know people in my family who are. This would be great to travel with to family functions. These cards are printed largely to be seen easily and stand apart from your standard playing cards.

I opened up two packs to check them out. They come in red and blue. This is the red backed ones. Everything was printed correctly and they were easy to handle. I like how smooth the coating on the cards are. These will be easy to shuffle with.

And here are the blue backed ones. Once again everything was perfect about them.

They come in a pack of 12 Decks if you decide to order them from Brybelly on Amazon here for $11.99 : http://www.amazon.com/Decks-Jumbo-Index-Plastic-Coated-Playing-Brybelly/dp/B00DW8G9U2/ref=sr_1_fkmr1_2?s=sporting-goods&ie=UTF8&qid=1377021992&sr=1-2-fkmr1&keywords=12+pack+jumbo+cards+brybelly

I really like the idea of crafting with playing cards. I think I will be putting some ideas into play.

You can make a cute clutch purse!

Or a cute Valentines Gift ^__^

Party Decor and bird houses. You have to think outside the box sometimes.

Okay, sometimes my pictures like to go sideways for whatever reason. These are the blue bingo chip markers I received from Royal Bingo Supplies on Amazon. It was a pack of 300 but I am not showing all 300 here. They are 3/4 inch in diameter.  They will come in separate plastic packages and they are all connected together so you have to snap them apart.

Here they are all snapped apart. It didn't take long to do just take them in rows of 4-5 and just twist them apart.

When you twist them apart they do have little plastic bits stuck on them from breaking them apart. Some of them are sharp while some of them you cant really feel them. I don't think its a big deal because they still serve their purpose which is just a placeholder on the bingo spots.

You can purchase a pack of 300 here on Amazon for $6.49 : http://www.amazon.com/Bingo-Markers-Royal-Supplies-Purple/dp/B00DNGVURA/ref=sr_1_1?s=sporting-goods&ie=UTF8&qid=1377186982&sr=1-1&keywords=Bingo+markers+by+Royal+Bingo+Supplies

You can craft with these if you were wondering. People make jewelry from these chips and even use them to fill in vases. It looks pretty if you use the right color like these blue ones. If you decide to craft with these you would need to be meticulous about cutting off the connector edges though.

Thanks for checking out my review!

Ahai Shopping

I've always loved Korean style clothing. They always just have the cutest and most stylish things. You know what's even better? A lot of their things are cheaper than American clothes as well.

 Well, I just discovered this website called www.ahaishopping.com. They have a ton of clothing , jewelry and accessories with that awesome Korean flair to it. Their pricing is very reasonable.

 The thing I like most about this site is that they have two sections you can go to for really cheap cute clothing. They have a section where all the clothing is ONLY $9.99 and the shipping is free. You cannot beat that! Also , another good thing about this site is that they sometimes show real customers wearing the piece of clothing you are interested in so you know how it really looks. The dress shown above is actually in this section. http://www.ahaishopping.com/ahaishopping-2650-Korean+lace+waist+dress+8229.html

This cute little jacket is in their $9.99 section as well. This would look so cute left open with a tshirt underneath. http://www.ahaishopping.com/ahaishopping-2714-Double-breasted+retro+jacket+5623.html
They also have another section where everything is ONLY $19.80 + FREE SHIPPING! This is available worldwide which also makes it an amazing deal.

This cute black lacey dress is in that section. http://www.ahaishopping.com/ahaishopping-6213-Lace+Dress+9025+Black.html

This dress is also available in the same section. I really love the lace combination with such a simple dress. http://www.ahaishopping.com/ahaishopping-6182-Lace+shirt+dress+9058.html

Uglee Pen

I got the opportunity to try out the Uglee Pen thanks to Tomoson. I've seen this thing everywhere in the blog world and was happy to get it. I really wanted to see what all the buzz was about.

I'm happy to see mine came in grey and black because those are my favorite colors to wear and use at home lol. This pen seems like a standard regular pen besides the gel like comfort base to hold when you are writing with it. It writes pretty smoothly.

Yeah the pen doesn't look like a regular pen. I wouldn't call it ugly but more unprofessional looking than anything else. If you're an important business person I wouldn't keep these readily propped to show on the desk. These pens are very lightweight. I really like the comfortable gel grip but I noticed it sticks to just about anything. I have two cats and the cat hair was a magnet for it. I don't think I will be putting this in my purse.

I really think this would be best for teenagers or kids to use out publicly in school. It might be more fun and comfortable for them. If you're older and in college then this would be good to use for you too. It's a fun pen and i am glad I got to try it out.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Tristan & Eve Jewelry

I decided I would write about a ring I purchased for my boyfriend on Amazon. I love my boyfriend very much and wanted to give him something nice. I guess kind of like a promise ring. We've been together for almost 3 years now.

I came across this company on Amazon called Tristan and Eve. They have so many beautiful pieces of jewelry at prices that agree with the wallet. I am a firm believer that things don't have to cost an arm and a leg to be perfect and worthy of someone. If it looks good and you think its perfect for the person then go for it!

The ring I got for him is made out of titanium and has cubic zirconias on them. Yes, they are fake diamonds but they are pretty nonetheless.

The ring came in a nice little black velvet pouch. I thought it was a classy touch.

I really like the ring for myself quite honestly. It actually fits quite nicely on my thumb. (Size 10)
It's a Mens ring but I think it looks quite neutral so a woman can flaunt it as well. It fits on smoothly. I am very surprised at the quality of this ring considering it only cost $18.99! Yes , that's right...this ring was only $18.99. You can pretty much find a bunch of cool things on Amazon for cheap these days without quality being sacrificed.

It's hard to see because I am using an Iphone to take these pictures. ( Sorry, I am no professional photographer lol) They have their company logo etched right in the inside of the rings.

Here's the ring on my boyfriend's middle finger. I did buy it for his ring finger but I had to go up to a size 10 because there wasn't any half sizes and he was a 9.5 for that finger. I think the "diamonds" make it look more feminine so if I was a guy I would turn it around like so.

There...now doesn't that look more manly? I love it.

You can buy the same ring here on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CO5J7FI/ref=cm_cr_rev_prod_title

You can check out all their other jewelry here http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=bl_sr_jewelry?_encoding=UTF8&field-brandtextbin=Tristan%20%26%20Eve&node=3367581

Thanks for reading :]


I hate doing laundry! A lot of us do. I think the worst part of it is how long it takes to do. The whole process can shave hours off in your day, UGH! How about a product that can take some drying time away from your clothing and be a natural fabric softner?

Introducing Woolzies! They are balls made from pure wool. Woolzies are also hypo-allergenic and totally safe for people with wool sensitivities as they will not shed onto your laundry. Woolzies last for 1,000 loads and are therefore extremely eco friendly. Who wants to keep buying fabric softner? Not I.

I actually never used fabric softner but that's okay with me. As for fabric softner sheets...I do like the smell of them on my clothing but I think that's the only reason I have used them in the past.

I'm just going to let you in on a little secret. Cats will love woolzies. They are big wool balls of course they will! I sacrificed a ball as a pet toy for my cat. It was fun watching him having a good time with it. He did ignore it the next day though. My cat gets bored quickly.

Some lovely action shots with Rusty.

Rawr, I'm a naughty beast!
Just be careful if you don't want your pet touching the woolzies because they can be addictingly fun for them.

So i took my woolzies to the laundromat with me. I usually will put 1 hour on my drying time because it will be two large loads for each dryer.
I put two xtra large woolzie balls into each dryer. I set it for 40 minutes and when I got back my clothes were all dry. I just had a tiny bit of moisture on the waist part of 1 of my heavier jeans but I just hung it on a door to finish drying when I got back home.

All my clothes felt so nice and soft. I really recommend this natural product because it will save you money in the long run.

You can buy Woolzies here http://www.woolzies.com/retail-purchase.htm

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Want to win a box of Woolzies for yourself or a friend? Enter my giveaway for your chance!

Wine Wear

I don't drink wine but I do know a bunch of people who do. I thought this concept was so cute! Welcome to the world of Wine Wear. They are greeting cards that fit over the neck of your wine bottle. There are so many styles to choose from on their website www.winewear.com.

The one pictured costs $3.49 which is what all the little cardboard ones cost. They actually have decals in sets of 9 that you can buy for the same price to stick on your wine glasses for different occasions.  If you really want to go all out they have actual clothing for the wine bottles which cost $9.99 each.

You write on the back of it before you put it on the bottle where you can put to and from. Then you just open it up and pop it over the bottle. It's so easy! What a unique idea instead of a blah boring card.

I popped mine over a bottle of Vodka because it's all I had in the same size as a wine bottle. As you can see it still works perfectly. If you want to gift a nice expensive bottle of Vodka then you can use this in the same manner. ( I promise I am not a drunk but a very occasional mixed drink drinker :] )

Here's how the back of it looks.
I really enjoy this fabulous idea and would consider buying some of the cuter prints in the future.

Check them out here at their site www.winewear.com and order your winewear today for that special occasion!
