The Snake Bite Company Review and Giveaway

I'm sure you all know by now that Happy Husband is a Land Surveyor here in Georgia.  His "walking tool kit" can be found on his belt.  He carries a knife, a machete, key chain, utility tool, and more.

One essential item is a bottle opener.  The one he did carry was not very sturdy.  Made of aluminum, it served a single purpose. It was needed and he kept it close. Until it broke and he bought a new one.  And again and again.

Recently, I was contacted by the Snake Bite Company and asked if I would like to review their products.  Of course, I jumped at the chance!

All of the products offered by Snake Bite are 100% Made in the USA.   We appreciate that!

Snake Bite Company offers several products: The Original Snake Bite Keychain and Bottle Opener,  The Snake Hook Brass Ring Key Loop, The Snake Bite Brand Shirt, and more!

Happy Husband, as you can imagine was thrilled with the key loop, key chain, and bottle opener!  (I kept the coozie for myself!).   He immediately added it to his work belt.  He said it would make life easier for him when he's in the field.  

We both loved the leather cover for the bottle opener.  Serves to protect the blades and body from rust and dulling.  The brass key loop is very strong and will take a lot of hard use and stress.

We are so excited to tell our readers about these great products.  Whether you're a hiker, camper, tailgater, or just like to have multi-purpose tools for your kitchen, playroom, or car, you can't go wrong with Snake Bite!

You can connect with Snake Bite Company on their website and social media pages: FacebookInstagramPinterestYoutubeGoogle+, and @snakebitecousa on Twitter.

The wonderful folks at Snake Bite have offered my readers a chance to win one of their amazing bottle opener keychains!

Just follow the instructions for your chance to enter to win!

VIVE Health Review and Giveaway -- Ends 9/23/2016

I haven't posted here in a while -- I injured myself badly about a month ago.  Just moments after leaving my doctor's office, I took a few steps out of his door... and heard a POP! and felt a horrifying crunch as my knee gave way.

I ripped my MCL (Medial Collateral Ligament).  I've never felt anything like it in my life.  Giving birth didn't hurt that much.

I wore a 'soft' knee brace for a few days but it didn't help much.  However, after speaking with the folks at VIVE Health, they very generously sent my their knee brace.  What a difference!

The Vive Universal Knee Brace is the best brace I have ever found.  It's strong and sturdy.  Fully adjustable to fit comfortably and offer maximum support.   My legs are short and round, so the ability to adjust the brace is very important.  I am able to wear the brace over long  jeans and under shorts -- very versatile support.

The brace is an open-patella design which keeps the knee stable and keeps the brace from slipping.   The neoprene is lightweight, breathable and helps cushion the knee to keep it from further injury.

This is a brace that I highly recommend.  I wear it daily and will ALWAYS keep it close.  I know all to well now that once the MCL is damaged, it's easy to re-injure it.  I also know I have another two months (at least) of wearing a brace.  I'm just glad to know that I have a brace I can rely on to protect my knee and keep it stable.

And that, my friends, is just the first issue that's kept my away.  I am experiencing issues with my right (dominant) hand.  The doctor says I may be developing "Trigger Finger".   I already have arthritis in that hand.  So...   Vive Health directed me to their Arthritis Compression Gloves.

Not only are they beautifully crafted, but they really work!  They are snug, but not too tight.  The compression technology acts like a massage: soothes and warms fingers, hands, and wrists.  The gloves also increases blood circulation.

For someone who is at the early stage of finger damage, these gloves make a tremendous difference.  I am having fewer instances of my finger "locking" into a bent position.  I can't tell you what a relief that is to me. 

The open-finger design allows the wearer to perform most tasks without a loss of dexterity.  That's very important to me as I am on the keyboard daily.  There is minimal stitching on the glove as well so no irritation!  

This is such a great pair of compression gloves.  So many different uses for them.  My youngest daughter is ALWAYS cold -- so these will help her stay much warmer this winter.  Happy Husband has requested a pair as he also suffers with arthritis and he works outside.  Warmth and soothing compression will be a blessing for him.

And last, but not least, are the Vive Toe Separators.  When I saw these, I knew they would be beneficial for my eldest daughter.  She was born with Spina Bifida and her toes are bent and inflexible.  

We're hoping that, as she uses the separators, she will gain more flexibility and ease the pain she suffers. As her toes straighten and stretch, her blood circulation will increase.  

The Toe Separators are made of an extra-soft gel for comfort and functionality.  Easy to clean, easy to store, and portable.  

I am very impressed with Vive Health and the many medical products they offer.  Their customer service is helpful, concerned, and genuinely happy to help. 

If you have a need to medical accessories, Vive Health is your one-stop shop.

You may connect with Vive Health on their website and social media pages: FacebookYouTube, and @vivehealthusa on Twitter.

Vive Health has very generously offered one of my readers a $50 Gift Card! Isn't that fantastic? Your chance to purchase an item that will give aid and comfort to you or a loved one.

Just follow the instructions below for your chance to enter to win.

JORD Wood Watch Review and Giveaway, ends 6/12/16 #jordwatch

I recently was given the opportunity to review an amazing wood watch from  Jord Wood Watches.

I chose the Red Sandalwood from the Ely Series.  It's beautiful. Photos do not do it justice.  The colour variation in the wood grain is stunning.

Isn't is lovely?  Fits like a glove, too. The wonderful folks at Jord sized it just for me! It's extremely comfortable to wear. It's light-weight and sits well on my wrist -- it doesn't slide or slip.

The scratch-resistant dial is analog: displaying hours, minutes, and seconds. The numbers are large and easy to read.  There is also a date window. 

The watch is splash-proof but NOT water-proof. Do Not Submerge!

The watch arrived in a beautiful, decorative wooden box with a slide-on lid. 

Perfect for protecting and displaying the treasured timepiece within.

I've been wearing this watch for a couple of weeks and it's fantastic.  I only take it off when I'm at the pool.  It's stylish, functional, and definitely a fashion statement! It's fits my active lifestyle and I truly feel confident when I wear it.  

I chose the style and colour for personal reasons of expression.  For me, the watch represents serenity and nature.  Jord's collection of watches offers so many choices of colour and style.  I know that you, too, will find that special timepiece that calls to your spirit.

The folks at Jord Wood Watches have generously offered one of my readers the opportunity to WIN a $75 off e-voucher good for any watch on their website and everyone who enters will receive a $20.00 e-gift card for any watch as well!

Just click this LINK to enter for your chance to win!

***The contest begins on Thursday 5/26/2016 and ends on Sunday 6/12/2016 (in time for guaranteed shipping for Father's Day).
***  The $75 voucher will expire on 7/15/2016, and the $20 e-gift cards will expire 10/15/2016.

You may connect with Jord on their social media pages: On Twitter @woodwatches_comFacebookGoogle+Vine,
Pinterest, and Instagram.

I received an Ely Series Red Sandalwood Watch for the purpose of review. I received no monetary compensation.  All opinions expressed herein are my own and based on my own use of and experience with this item.   #jordwatch

#PetcoDelivers Enjoying Petco's Repeat Delivery Service! Review and Giveaway ends 5/16/16

This blog post is part of a paid Megan Media and Petco Repeat Delivery Service blogging program. The Opinions and ideas here are my own.

We have cats.  One big, happy kitty family! All of the cats are in various age ranges but most are well over five years old.  Poof and Bear are closer to seven.  I love to buy them great cat food and fun treats, but I don't like shopping in locals pet stores.
I rarely have enough time (or patience) for that.  When I discovered that Petco had a Repeat Delivery service, I was ecstatic.  Convenience... no hassles... YES!  

I found the products I wanted (without time restraints) and began the process. 
First, I signed up as a first-time customer.  Second, I chose the Repeat Delivery service, added my items to the cart, and selected my Repeat Delivery schedule.  It's easy! I chose a two-week repeat delivery to ensure that I never run out of cat food! 

If you sign up between April 1 and April 30, you will qualify for 20% off certain items and a $30.00 eGift Card*** with a $39.00 order! How neat is that?

(***The Promotional eGift Cards are not valid on donations, back-ordered items, or the purchase of another Petco eGift Card or physical Petco Gift Card. The value of the eGift Card is applied to the total price including tax and shipping fees.)

My package arrived just a few days after I placed the order.

As you can see, Simon kept close watch over the box.  He's great security.  He made sure the others didn't get into it before he had a chance to check it out!

The contents were revealed! 

Happy kitties Simon and Oscar eagerly trying their new treats and giving a big nod of approval!  Greybaby looks on awaiting her turn!

 Bear, the pickiest of all, loves his new treats!
