Heat Resistant Cooking Gloves

Heat Resistant Cooking Gloves

Etherno invited me to review their heat resistant cooking gloves. These gloves are heat resistant up to 446 degrees Fahrenheit. They are non-toxic and made from natural silicon. Etherno’s heat resistant cooking gloves are waterproof, easy to clean, and dishwasher safe. The silicone used to make these gloves is FDA approved for food preparation.   What I like about Etherno’s heat resistant cooking gloves most is their five finger design. I typically use traditional oven mitts which have limited range of motion. The silicon is soft; easier to grasp but still has a limited range of motion. You won’t be able to multitask with these gloves on. The non-slip design does allow for a tighter grasp which adds extra protection in the kitchen. I’ve never been burned while using Etherno’s heat resistant cooking gloves. However, when removing hot pans from the oven I can feel heat beginning to build up in…

Santa Fe Art Supply 15 pc Paint Brush Set

Santa Fe Art Supply 15 pc Paint Brush Set 3

I’m terrible to my paint brushes. I generally neglect and treat them very poorly. It’s because of this I never invest in high quality paint brushes. When I was asked to review the Santa Fe Art Supply 15 pc Paint Brush Set I was stoked! This is the perfect opportunity for me to work with professional quality paint brushes. Now that I have this opportunity I’m committed to treating them with care! The Santa Fe Art Supply 15 pc Paint Brush Set comes with the 15 long handle brushes you see here. Each handle is 12 inches long. The paint brushes have animal friendly synthetic hair. In the Santa Fe Art Supply 15 pc Paint Brush Set they also included a bonus ergonomic brush. The brushes come in a high quality travel case that converts to a pop-up stand.   I’m adamantly not the best painter and this painting is far from completed….

Pierre Garcon, Body Shamer and Bully?

Pierre Garcon Instagram Screen Shot of Bullying 2

Is Pierre Garcon a body shamer and a bully? He posted this photo on his Instagram account with the message, “With my WOES.” The context of his message wasn’t clear to me, or other social media users. Before being deleted the post in question had several people concerned that he was body shaming two gentlemen in this photo. (I’ve blurred out their faces to prevent further shame to them, his photo wasn’t blurred.) Several users, myself included asked Pierre to clarify the intent of his message. It was ambiguous at best but offensive to many who viewed it. Instead of clarifying his position or offering an apology he decided to swiftly delete the photo. He removed it from Facebook and Instagram while the original tweet remains intact, as of today. It bothers me that Pierre Garcon would use his platform to post a message like this one. What I see when I…

Stardom Crafts Liquid Chalk Markers Review

stardom crafts liquid chalk markers

The girls and I have been using Stardom Crafts Liquid Chalk Markers on our recent art projects. What I like about Stardom Crafts Liquid Chalk Markers is that they have a reversible tip. They offer a chisel & bullet tip which allows for fine & bold lines. Stardom Crafts Liquid Chalk Markers comes with 18 color choices! I like that they offer a pastel version of the primary colors. They also come with your primary color choices. Stardom Crafts Liquid Chalk Markers also is different from other markers I’ve tried as they included black & brown.   My family is really in to playing Splatoon on the WiiU. Splatoon is a kid friendly “paint game” as my youngest calls it. I decided to use my Stardom Crafts Liquid Chalk Markers to make my daughters an inkling.   Stardom Crafts Liquid Chalk Markers work on any non porous surface. They can be used on…

Silicon Devices Bluetooth Headphones Review

Silicon Devices Bluetooth Headphones

I’ve been testing out the Silicon Devices Bluetooth Headphones for a few weeks now; and I LOVE them! They easily pair with my iPhone, iPod, and Dell Desktop; providing me the versatility I need. Silicon Devices Bluetooth Headphones are comfortable. They come with three sized ear buds (small, medium, large) and the padding is soft. The ear buds fit snugly without feeling too large or causing discomfort. The compact design and control functionality are my favorite qualities of the Silicon Devices Bluetooth Headphones. It’s easy to adjust the volume, pair your devices, and change your song.   The HD sound quality on Silicon Devices Bluetooth Headphones meets my expectations. The audio quality is crisp and clear. The bass is deep but subtle. I could handle a little bit more bass but that’s pretty typical for me as most headphones I’ve tested miss the mark in this regard. The noise cancelling is also…

Beauty Lashious Pink Eyelash Curler Review

Beauty Lashious Pink Eyelash

Beauty Lashious contacted me and asked me to review their Pink Eyelash Curler. The Beauty Lashious Pink Eyelash Curler  is different from other eyelash curlers I’ve used previously. The handle has contoured groves for your fingers to rest in versus a circle cutout. The circle cutout eyelash curlers require you to manually open and close the curler to use while the Beauty Lashious Pink Eyelash Curler has a tension spring in it so that it opens on its own and you only apply force to close it. This removes the clumsy awkward feeling that traditional eyelash curler handles have. Traditional eyelash curlers feel like using kids scissors, they just aren’t comfortable but the Beauty Lashious Pink Eyelash Curler feels natural in your hand and there are no discomforts involved in using them. One claim made by the Beauty Lashious Pink Eyelash Curler is that it offers “PINCH-FREE CURLS” This claim is true. When you…
