Ozeri Precision Digital Bath Scale

The New Ozeri Precision Digital Bath Scale (400 Lb Edition) With Widescreen LCD And Step-on Activation, In White

A bath scale isn't something you necessarily think of to decorate when you think about it. But this scale will change how you think about decorating the bathroom when you lay eyes on this scale. I received this scale and I must say It is gorgeous in person! I was expecting a much bigger and much wider scale for a model that weighs up to 400 lbs.`

Its very nice to have a scale that goes to 400 because I have had scales where they only go to 300 and certain members of my family are right on that limit so were unable to weigh properly.  It is actually a very elegant, modern looking scale.The fact that its made of tempered glass is even better because I feel safer with it. Its so gorgeous its like standing on stained glass! I have to say this is the nicest looking scale that I've ever seen. I previously wrote a review on the Ozeri WeightMASTER which I thought was totally cool because of the neat blue light. But this one really has stolen my attention away from the WeightMASTER.

I had recently been weighed using one of those huge ton machines at the drs office with the pegs they move from left to right. I was pretty sure of my current weight so I decided to test it out. It was very accurate, my other regular brand scale was off by about 7 lbs. Accurate weight is very important so that you can monitor your health especially if you live in a diabetes household like we do.

If you are looking for a stylish scale for your home, I definitely recommend this model. Easy to use, nice looking, tempered glass, will fit into either a classic styled home or modern.

I don't know where they hide the technology but this is so slim and sleek. 
  • Auto calibration technology that makes tracking your weight easy, right out of the box. 
  • Step-on Activation, your body weight is displayed immediately upon stepping onto the scale, with no tapping required to turn on or activate the scale. 
  • Accurately displays results in increments of 0.2 pounds or 0.1 kilograms on its easy to read widescreen LCD, and uses 4 G sensors to capture weights up to 400 lbs or 180 kg with industry leading accuracy. 
  • Convenient unit button that instantly changes the unit of measurement from pounds to kilograms and optionally British stones. 
  • Oversized platform, impact resistant tempered glass, and durable construction. 
  • Turns off automatically to conserve battery life, and runs on 1 Lithium 2032 battery (included) for the best in performance.

You can find out more about the Ozeri Precision Digital Bath Scale at the amazon link below.

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

Purex UltraPacks Detergent

No mess. No spills. No heavy bottles.


So I discovered that one of the twins flung baby food across the room.  It landed on a tshirt but after 10 minutes of soaking in I was sure that the stain wouldn't come out.  I decided to see how well these Purex UltraPacks plus Oxi work. 



As you can see it came out pretty good!

Purex UltraPacks contain a complete load’s worth of concentrated liquid laundry detergent in each convenient pack. They dissolve quickly, even in cold water, releasing the concentrated liquid laundry detergent.
No more measuring. No more mess. Just toss and go! With double the cleaning power in every drop, you can trust your clothes will come out bright, white and clean.
Like any household detergent, keep away from children.

How do Purex UltraPacks work?
Each Purex UltraPack contains 2x concentrated liquid detergent, giving each UltraPack double the cleaning power in every drop. They dissolve quickly once the washer is started—even in cold water.

Purex UltraPacks plus Oxi have even more stain-fighting power than regular Purex UltraPacks because they combine the Purex performance of Purex detergent with the stain-fighting power of Oxi.

Fels-Naptha Laundry Bar & Stain Remover Review and Giveaway!

If you are like me and have been using a liquid stain remover, well this is something that you definitely need to check out. I'm sort of a clutz and I have lost or broken or spilled countless bottles of liquid stain remover. Even now, I have a bottle and its new and the nozzle is broken. In order to use it I have to unscrew the broken nozzle and pour it on the stain, which I always pour too much. With Fels-Naptha none of those problems are an issue. Because its basically a laundry bar. It looks like a soap  bar and you use it to rub into your stain just like you would with the liquid stain remover.

 I have never used a laundry bar and found it quite neat to use, It's been around for over 100 years so you know its a tried and true product. In the picture below you can see the bar on top of the box.

  • No broken nozzles
  • No liquid loss from overusing your liquid stain remover
  • No plastic spray bottle waste
  • Longer lasting than the liquid stain removers 

Also see them on Facebook at
There is also a great sweepstakes that is taking place thru the August 28th.  

One winner will win the  $500 grand prize and 119 second place winners will receive a coupon for a free bar of Purex Fels-Naptha Laundry bar. Thats 120 winners for every year Fels-Naptha has been helping remove America's toughest stains!

Ozeri WeightMASTER Digital Bathroom Scale with Microban Antimicrobial Product Protection Review

I'll be reviewing the Ozeri WeightMASTER Digital Bathroom Scale with MICROBAN Antimicrobial Product Protection.  When I received the scale the picture on the box does not do it justice.

When you take it out of the box the first thing you notice is the oversized LCD screen. When it lights up the xBright technology illuminates the LCD screen with a lovely bright blue screen. I also like how its large numbers so you don't have to wear your glasses like I would to read the numbers. The illumination also makes it so that you can EASILY read it without a light on if you choose to use it during the night. Another feature I enjoy is that it runs on 3 AAA batteries. No weird or awkward batteries that you have no idea where or how to replace.

 I have a big household with dogs, cats 2 children and 2 parents so this Microban antimicrobial product protection is great. I cannot believe that on a regular scale the bacteria can double every twenty minutes. Have you ever thought to clean off your scale regularly? Probably not if you are like me. This is a great added layer of protection that I enjoy vs my other regular scale.

 Another feature is the large weighing platform to stand on. It weighs up to 400 lbs so almost anyone can easily stand on the scale without having to strain to stay on the scale.  This scale will easily change between lbs, kgs, and st.  So if you are used to weighing yourself in another way it easily converts.   This scale is really easy to use and to be honest I love to use it at night just to see the blue xBright technology screen. It makes me wish this doubled as a night light.
Nice and Slim

  • Features Microban antimicrobial product protection that helps prevent the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria.
  • Innovative design features a large weighing platform infused with Microban antimicrobial technology for an added level of protection that won't wear away for the life of the scale.
  • Microban antimicrobial protection works 24/7 to keep the surface of the scale cleaner (on an unprotected bath scale, bacteria can double in number every 20 minutes).
  • New oversized LCD with xBright technology provides immediate and easy-to-read results. Uses 4 high-precision GX sensors that weigh up to 400lbs (180 kg) in 0.2 lb or 0.1 kg increments.
  • New StepOn technology captures the precise weight measurment upon contact. (no tapping required.)
  • Convenient Unit Button switches between lbs, kg, and st. 
  • Auto-calibrates and automatically turns off to conserve battery life.
  • Runs on 3AAA batteries (batteries included).

If you are looking to pick one of these gorgeous scales up you can do so at

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

Bear Grylls Get Out Alive Giveaway

 I was so excited when I heard Bear Grylls had a new show I couldn't wait for the first episode. The first season of GET OUT ALIVE with Bear Grylls is on and a new episode aired last night. I'll try to avoid spoilers but its just such a good show I totally want to give my opinion on everything and every team on there. Instead of a survival show that he normally hosts and stars in himself, each week there are sets of teams of two. They each compete under FOOD, SHELTER or OBSTACLE. Each team then is responsible for the food all of them eat, the shelter or whatever Obstacle Bear gives them. They must catch most of their food, along with rice and beans. Last night they ate eel. Bear then evaluates each of the contestants based on if they would GET OUT ALIVE. He dismisses one team at the end of each episode. As usual theres couples, siblings, father/daughter team, and Best Friends. As each team gets picked off another team has the chance to win a Fiest Pit which is basically everything on the menu at Chilis.  They get to bathe and clean up too. I generally enjoy the new show and think these bracelets are pretty darn handy. You never know when you need one, and I'd personally love to have anything from Bears line of products, which the contestants are always wearing in the show. He's got some nice stuff. So why not go ahead and try for a chance to win one of these!

• Bear GIFs! The Get Out Alive GIF Gallery -
Watch amazing and action-packed GIFs from the show!

• Would YOU Get Out Alive? QUIZ -
Getting out alive means making split-second decisions when faced with danger in the wilderness. Test your knowledge of the great outdoors and see how you “bear up” to Bear Grylls’ wild wisdom!

• Get to Know the Contestants! VIDEO CLIPS -
Watch inspiring and entertaining clips of the contestants on the show. All have overcome huge obstacles in life and all are hoping to be crowned the winning duo of Get Out Alive!

Ozeri Frother Review

Ozeri Deluxe Milk Frother Review

Today I'll be reviewing the Ozeri Deluxe Milk Frother in Stainless Steel, with Stand and 4 Frothing Attachments.

When I knew this was coming and on its way I really expected it to be larger, more like those plugin hand mixers, but I was pleasantly surprised that it was battery operated, slender and had its own stand. Did I mention its CORDLESS?! Awesome!  It was not bulky at all easy to install the batteries and the fact that it doesn't take up much counter space is a huge plus.

Ships with 4 frothing attachments - 2 Milk Frothing Whisks, 1 Egg Beater, 1 Cocktail Mixer, and an elegant stand. The egg beater attachment can be used to whisk eggs, soups, dressings, sauces and other non-solid food items, and a propeller-shaped attachment that can be used to mix cocktails. It also comes with 2 AA batteries so you don't have to wait to froth!

It's pretty easy to remove it and install the other attachment. Its actually quite quick too. I just love that its so versatile. I can easily go from making foamed coffee to beating eggs to later that night making some cocktails. It's so many things in one!   It has a Powerful motor that spins at over 15,000 RPMS. 

It literally took me seconds to foam up some milk. Seriously I mean in ten seconds I had foam. This works for steam-free cappuccinos, lattes, espressos, hot chocolates, shakes, frappes and other drinks, frothing has never been easier than with the Ozeri Milk Frother. The Ozeri Frother foams all kinds of milk (whole/regular/skim milk, soy milk, almond milk and coconut milk) alike for fluffy hot café lattes or cold chocolate malts in seconds. Some members of my family are lactose intolerant so its great that it can foam up soy milk too.

I thought this would be great for camping, or handy tool for taking to work. It's petite, cordless, and it can fit just about anywhere. So if you want fancy foam hot chocolates or a café latte while camping or while at work just toss this in the bag and go!

You can check out Ozeri on facebook at

If you want to check it out on Amazon to purchase you can do that here .

Just check out that layer of foam in my cup.

Ozeri provided me with a Milk Frother for review.  I was not provided any other compensation of any kind.  All opinions I express regarding the Ozeri Milk Frother are my own.
