Oh, y’all, I feel so bad about this.  I received this product in exchange for my honest review, and somehow I did not get around to writing the review in a timely manner.  Now it appears that the company may have suspended operations.

And I hate that, because not only did I like the product, but it’s a Knoxville company (something I didn’t learn until after the fact).

This much of the website is still up and you should take a look.  If you are from Knoxville you will probably see some places you recognize in the promotional video.  If you find the product interesting you might want to follow the company on Facebook in case they make a comeback.

I received two carriers to try, and I gave one to my son who is always doing things like hiking and caving.  He was especially impressed with how strong it was.

I keep mine in my car for hiking.  I’ve used it to carry my phone and my water bottle.  The website suggests tons of other uses.  It is very versatile and yes, quite strong and secure.  I didn’t have any fears that my phone would drop along the trail.

The company was still operational as late as November so I am still hopeful they will reopen.  Keep your eyes open for Kangeaux products in the future.

Before I even give my usual disclaimer let me tell you that I LOVE LOVE LOVE my crabpot tree!

Yes, I received said tree for free in exchange for my honest review of it here, in my capacity as a blogger for National Family Guide.  But it’s not even stretching the truth a little bit to tell you that I love this thing and I would like to own many more of them.

First of all, the details the company wants me to share: Crab Pot Christmas Trees are remarkable, perfectly shaped trees that are pre-lit, fold flat for storage, sparkle from EVERY angle and are easily set up. What makes these holiday trees so unique and the MUST HAVE of the season for home decor? Crab Pot Christmas Trees are made from the very durable PVC Coated Crab Pot Wire which withstands all that Mother Nature throws at it.

You can see the company’s pictures and their explanatory video on my first post here.  But let me tell you about my personal experience.

This thing comes folded flat in a triangular box.  It takes literally two minutes to set up, tops.  We set it on our front porch for instant festiveness.  It came with anchors for putting it out in the yard if we had wanted to do that.  I was a little worried it might blow over in the wind but it never did even though we have had strong winds and rain, too, and our porch does get wet when it rains.

I have one complaint only which is that the cord is a little short.  It would be perfect for an in-floor or in-ground outlet but we had to attach ours to another strand of lights to reach the wall plug.  No big deal but just one detail that could be improved upon.

We love this tree and would buy more of them.  They are having a sale right now if you want to get your own–check out their site right here!

Here’s another product I will be getting free in exchange for reviewing it on behalf of U.S. Family Guide.  I was SO excited when I saw this product but I’m not going to tell you which one I ordered until it arrives. 🙂

As always, the company wants me to share some information about this product with you:

3DLIGHTFX 3D Deco Lights are the perfect gift this holiday season. They have a full range of comic book, super hero, Disney Princess, sports and car lights that look as though they are popping right out of the wall! They are battery operated and cool to the touch so you can place them any where in the room! Your kids will love having these in their rooms and they’re also the perfect editions to a den, family room, man’s cave or office!

You can purchase these lights at Target and Target.com at the following link: http://bit.ly/TargetUSFamily

Now look at see how cool these are!

I’m here today to give my honest review of the AdoramaPix photobook I told you about several weeks ago.  I worry that you won’t trust a review that is as glowing as the one I am about to write.  But I assure you that even though I received this product ($50 value!) for free, I am giving you my honest opinion, as always.

So the way this works is, you head over to the AdoramaPix Website and select the type of book you want.  There a variety of designs and templates depending on what kind of book you want to make.  Are you commemorating a special occasion? Collecting vacation photos? Making a gift book for someone special? The design I chose was specifically for highlighting iPhone pictures.

Yes, y’all, I made my very own coffee table book and I could not love this thing more.  And it was so easy.  The hardest part was figuring out which pictures to use.  The second hardest part was laying them out.  There are tutorials on the site to explain how the process works–for that matter, you can let the program lay them out at random.  You can even import a layout from your own program if that sort of thing makes sense to you.  It’s not something I have any experience with so I let the program do it for me and then moved them around until I got them where I wanted them.

My book is incredible.  Does that sound vain? You would never believe I took the pictures with an iPhone.

I waited too long to post this review so the coupon code I had to offer has expired.  HOWEVER, AdoramaPix is always running specials, and they have sales going on for the rest of the month.  And I don’t know if y’all remember, but I also ordered some metal prints from them that were incredible.  So don’t limit yourself to the photobook.

Here are more pictures but they don’t do it justice.  The colors are beautiful.

Do yourself a favor and take a look at the AdoramaPix website and be sure to let me know if you buy anything!

So, I’ve been told by at least one reader that y’all don’t like it when I post reviews.  And I get that I’ve posted more reviews lately and less non-branded content.  That’s because when someone provides a product for me, I really have to follow through and tell you what I thought of it!  There’s only internal pressure for me to share my brilliant original ideas. 🙂  And never, ever enough time.

Yes, this is a review.  For sunglasses!  And before you tell me it’s the wrong season for reviewing sunglasses, let me just say that I’ve been using mine more than ever lately.  The afternoon autumn sun is absolutely blinding right now.

LotFancy is a San Francisco-based company founded in 1999, and they offer a lot more than just sunglasses.  They sell everything from high-tech products to kids’ items, all of it on Amazon.

I was especially excited to review these sunglasses because this is the first time that a company reached out to me with an offer for a product in exchange for a review.  That was pretty exciting.  I got to choose three pairs–two for me and one I gave John to try out. Here are links to the ones we tried:

Ladies’ Black Sunglasses

Ladies’ White Sunglasses

Men’s Aviator Sunglasses

My glasses were mailed to me directly from the company, so I can’t personally speak to the level of customer service one would receive by ordering through Amazon, but the customer ratings and reviews seem to speak for themselves–the company has a close to 100% positive rating.

What I can speak to is the quality of the glasses themselves.  I was very pleased, and so was John.  These are well-made, attractive sunglasses and they don’t cost much.  At these prices you can afford to have more than one pair, so I was able to be a little frivolous and try some styles I might not go for normally, which was fun.  The case they come with is really high quality.  If you are conscientious about putting them away after wearing them they are going to last forever.  I have one complaint only.  The pair of sunglasses I already had are kind of rounded in such a way that they go all the way around the sides of my eyes.  I’m not explaining this very well but these glasses aren’t made that way so sun can come in at you sideways–not a lot, but that is a disadvantage to these compared to my others.

However, one thing I like better about these is that the lenses protected my eyes from the sun while not distorting the colors of the real world as much as some other pairs.  I don’t like the brown or greenish cast some of my past pairs have had and these don’t do that.

Oh my gosh, y’all.  You have to have pictures for a review, right?  Don’t laugh at these.  I know they are not the most professional thing I have ever done but I think they show off the sunglasses well.

So there you have it!  If you are looking for some cute and reasonably-priced sunglasses, I can recommend LotFancy.  And although I was provided three pairs to review for free, that is my honest opinion.
