GoPro Cameras at Best Buy #GoProatBestBuy with @BestBuy #Sponsored 

Check out this HOT new gadget, sure to be on everyone’s Holiday Wish List!! Grab the GoPro Cameras at Best Buy, and capture adventures that bring joy to life!

If you haven’t been to Best Buy lately, you’re missing out!  After all, Best Buy is the home of the latest cameras and camcorders — including the full line of new GoPro cameras, plus an assortment of must-have accessories. GoPro cameras make perfect holiday gifts for anyone — from kids and teens, to gadget gurus, or anyone who would be fun to capture life on the go! GoPro’s new line of cameras allow you to beautifully and authentically capture and share the experiences that bring purpose, adventure, and joy to life.

I highly recommend grabbing a GoPro (or two!) for the Holidays!

I first learned about GoPro when my stepson and his girlfriend participated in a charity event. Much like the TV show “Wipeout,” this even was a 5k through a maze of obstacle courses.  The night before the event, they stopped by Best Buy and grabbed a GoPro. They filmed the whole thing, which was hysterical!!  I wish there were cameras like this when I was a kid!

Still not convinced?  Check out theses specs:

  • GoPro HERO4 Black: the most advanced GoPro ever, featuring improved image quality and a 2x more powerful processor with 2x faster video frame rates1, HERO4 Black takes award‐winning GoPro performance to a whole new level.
  • GoPro HERO4 Silver: the first-ever GoPro to feature a built-in touch display. Controlling The camera, playing back footage and adjusting settings is ultra-convenient—just view, tap and swipe the screen. With 1080p60 and 720p120 video, and 12MP photos at a staggering 30 frames per second, HERO4 Silver combines powerful, pro-quality capture with the convenience of a touch display.
  • GoPro HERO: Featuring high‐quality 1080p30 and 720p60 video, and 5MP photos up to 5 fps, HERO captures the same immersive footage that’s made GoPro one of the best-selling cameras in the world.
  • 12x more powerful processor with 2x faster video frame rates

Tech-talk not your thing?  Check out these awesome pics!

Okay, now you know how much you want one. Find out more at www.bestbuy.com/GoPro or visit your local Best Buy to check out the latest cameras in person.

Ninja Blender DUO with Auto-iQ Review #sponsored

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

ninja-blender
I was given The Nutri Ninja® | Ninja® Blender DUO™ With Auto-iQ™ to review and tell you about.

This is my second Ninja blender, and I love them both! They just keep getting better. My first didn’t have Auto-iQ, and I didn’t know what I was missing.

For your blending and nutrient & vitamin extraction needs.

disclaimer:  The reviewer has been compensated in the form of the product for free. Regardless, this is an unbiased opinion on the product reviewed. All opinions are the reviewer’s own, regardless of receiving product at no cost. The sponsor has not added any information to this review.

ninja-review

My take: I really like the presets on Nutri Ninja with Auto-iQ. I’m impatient, but I’ve found that letting it complete its full cycle really does make a difference. It blends, pauses, then blends some more to allow contents to settle down and then get whipped up again in a pulsing action. So, you don’t have to stir, shake or mix the contents. It does it automatically.

The Ninja has the same powerful blending blades as always. That means you can use the whole fruit or vegetable and you don’t lose fiber, vitamins or nutrients – and you don’t waste food!  It also crushes ice for smoothies and drinks like NO other blender I’ve ever had. If you leave it in long enough it will actually turn to snow! Not that we need snow here in Wisconsin!! 😉 Because of the powerful crushing power, I keep my fruits and veggies frozen until I want to use it. Then, I pop in the Ninja to add to smoothies, soups, etc. In frozen drinks, you don’t have to add as much ice that way. Your drink is cold, smoothly blended and not watered down. And, of course, keeping fruits and veggies frozen makes them last so much longer!


Pros:

  • Auto-iQ technology with several presets that blend to perfection
  • Nutrient Extractor: Extract a nutritious drink from fruits and vegetables.
  • BPA Free
  • Dishwasher safe
  • Easy cleanup
  • Long cord
  • Small footprint on countertop
  • Accessories available

Cons:

  • Loud

First Alert Carbon Monoxide CO Detector Review

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

first-alert-review

 

We were sent a First Alert Carbon Monoxide CO Detector to try out, and tell you about.

Carbon Monoxide poisoning is dangerous!  And it’s actually a leading cause of accidental poisoning deaths in America. Why? Symptoms of CO poisoning are like the flu, so chances are you might not even know you’re in danger. That’s why a carbon monoxide alarm is a must in my opinion! It can detect harmful CO you can’t see, smell or taste in the air.

The First Alert CO710 alarm is a cool, modern-looking device that doesn’t have to be hidden up on the ceiling like a regular smoke detector. It displays the temperature and appears to be a high-tech gadget. But, in reality it’s designed to detect harmful carbon monoxide in your home to keep you and your family safe.

The display shows room temperature and the design is modern and clean looking. It’s a nice addition to any room. You can also mount it on the wall. The neutral color will go with any decor.

Instructions suggest testing it weekly, so be sure to put it within reach if mounting up high.

The CO710 runs on a sealed 10-year lithium battery. Since we haven’t had the unit long, I can’t report on how long the battery life really is.

first-alert-co-detector-review

To set it up, just open the package, flip the switch on the back (the first time I didn’t get it set all the way to “on” so it appeared to be dead and not working, but alas it does work fine).

Findings

Pros:

  • Beautiful design
  • Large, clear display
  • Small enough to bring along when you travel (hotel, RV, boat, etc.)
  • 10 year limited warranty
  • 10-year non-replaceable battery
  • Easy set-up

Cons:

  • didn’t find any!

Overall Recommendations

Overall, I highly recommend getting a CO detector!  First Alert is a brand you can trust, and if you have any trouble with the unit, be sure to let them know within the 10-year warranty period.

Grab the First Alert CO710 CO Detector manual here.

 

FACTS ABOUT CARBON MONOXIDE (CO)

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless and odorless gas known as the silent killer.  According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, CO poisoning is the number one cause of accidental poisoning in the United States.  Diagnosis of CO poisoning can be difficult because symptoms mimic those of many other illnesses and include nausea, headaches, dizziness, weakness, chest pain and vomiting.  In more severe poisoning cases, people may experience disorientation or unconsciousness, or suffer long-term neurological disabilities, cardiorespiratory failure or death.  Regardless of a home’s age, people can be exposed to this poisonous gas, which originates from anything that burns fuel, such as gas furnaces, stoves, water heaters, barbeque grills, wood-burning fireplaces, generators and automobiles.

CO Risks and Fatalities

  • CO poisoning is responsible for an average of 450 deaths and more than 20,000 emergency room visits in the U.S. each year. (American Medical Association)
  • Nearly three-quarters (73 percent) of CO exposure is in the home, and more than two-fifths (41 percent) occurs during the winter months of December, January and February. (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
  • Ninety percent of American homes do not meet the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) recommendation for number of CO alarms, including 40 percent that report having zero working carbon monoxide alarms. (First Alert “Get Alarmed” Survey, July 2010)

Avoiding CO Poisoning

  • All fuel-burning (gas, oil and coal) devices should be serviced by a qualified technician every year. Generators, charcoal grills, camp stoves and other similar devices should only be used outdoors.
  • Running vehicles inside an attached garage, even if the door is open, is hazardous, as CO can leak into the home.
  • CO alarms should be installed outside each sleeping area (such as in a hallway outside the bedroom) and on every level of the home, including the basement. Battery-operated CO alarms or plug-in alarms with battery backup are preferred in case of power failure.
  • Call 911 and leave the home immediately if the CO alarm sounds.

Additional CO Alarm Guidelines

  • Clear CO alarms of all of dust and debris.
  • Ensure that alarms are plugged all the way into the outlet or, if battery operated, have working batteries installed. Check or replace the battery when you change the time on your clocks each spring and fall.
  • Make certain each person can hear the CO alarm sound from his or her sleeping area and that the sound is loud enough to awaken everyone.
  • Make sure the alarms are installed at least 15 feet away from sources of CO to reduce the number of nuisance alarms.

CO Alarm Legislation

  • Numerous states have passed legislation requiring CO alarms in residential homes and other types of dwellings. Included are Alaska, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, New York, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin and West Virginia.
  • Many major U.S. cities – including Chicago, New York City, Philadelphia and St. Louis – also have municipal CO codes.

Fellowes M-12C shredder

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

M-12C_HeroLeft
It’s TAX Time! That dreaded season when you’d rather do spring cleaning than math. But, it’s a great time to get rid of that paper clutter. Be productive and get shredding while enjoying your favorite TV show. The Fellowes M-12C shredder’s slim profile design and SafeSense technology make it a great choice for at-home use – even around children and pets.

FHH-5-P-Infographic-FINALPros: I highly recommend this shredder!

  • SafeSense® Technology stops shredding when hands touch the paper opening
  • 12 sheets at a time
  • shreds up to 5 minutes at a time
  • 4-gallon bin, so it doesn’t need to be dumped right away!
  • compact size

Cons:

  • 20 minute cool down needed after 5 minutes

This infographic outlines how to organize your space and boost productivity. Productivity Pro Laura Stack created the system. I think this would be a great fit for your readers. Please let me know if you plan to share either on social media or your website.

The M-12C features: The ability to shred credit cards, paper clips, staples and junk mail for added convenience, Cross-Cut blades that destroy 12 sheets of paper into approximately 302 particles per sheet for greater security, SafeSense® Technology which automatically disables the shredder when hands touch the paper opening.

The M-12C is available at Target stores nationwide and Target.com with a suggested retail price of $99.99

Stocking Stuffers

  • Nui High Protein Cookies

    If your New Year Resolution is to go on (or back on!) the KETO diet, then you need to know about these yummy cookies. Only 1 G net carbs, 1 gram of sugar, gluten free and keto friendly AND YES, THEY TASTE GREAT! 🙂 These cookies were started by two immigrant entrepreneurs, Victor and Kristoffer, who saw a need to cut sugar without sacrificing snacks. After each losing weight eating keto, they realized the one thing they missed most was cookies! After starting the company from Victor's mother's home kitchen, Keto Cookies was born. Shortly after, they realized the cookies had a wider audience than just weight loss- from helping moms give their kids healthy snacks, to helping people with diabetes cut their cookie fix without the dangerous sugar- so they branded as Nui. They recently appeared on "Shark Tank" where guest Shark Alex Rodriguez (ARod) outbid Mr. Wonderful and Barbara to strike a deal with Nui. Leave Santa some cookies this Christmas that won't hurt his waist line. A whole box (16 Nui cookies) has less sugar than one normal cookie!Buy Now

  • Zippy Paws Pet Toys

    Zippy Paws makes dog toys that are not only fun and dogs love them, but they're also rated to be safe for children. Why is that important? Even if you don't have kids, there's a fair chance that kids may be around your dog's toys... and inevitably they'll try to play with them. Why not buy dog toys that are safe?! I was shocked to learn that only two dog toy manufacturers even bother to be rated safe for kids.  Ginger's favorite is the ZippyPaws Hedgehog (which also comes in a 12-pack... say what???) and Jersey's favorite is also the hedgehog. I mean, you guys my labs are like toddlers, this should not surprise you. My faves are the ZippyPaws Woodland Friends Burrow, Interactive Squeaky Hide and Seek Plush Dog Toy (Seriously, does anyone else think they missed their chance to call it Hide and Squeak? haha!) and all of the gimmie dogs unanimously vote for the super cute dog scarves (the pompoms are irresistible though!)

  • Ninja Coffee Bar Brewer System with Glass Carafe

    A few years ago I reviewed a Ninja Coffee Bar system. I loved it, and told you about it here. But, unfortunately, that design didn't work as well as I hoped and my coffee bar bit the dust. The good folks at Ninja sent me a replacement, which is redesigned in a much better way! The controls are all on the side - not on the bottom, so any water that leaks out (and it did, in the old version) doesn't sit on the delicate controls. I'm sure that is what went wrong with the first one. This new design is much improved! I love the Ninja Coffee Bar and highly recommend it!Buy Now
  • Shark ION Robot Vacuum

    Shark ION ROBOT 750 Vacuum with Wi-Fi Connectivity + Voice Control, (RV750) works with Alexa! The Shark ION robot vacuum is similar to iRobot Roomba vacuum.

The Shark robot vacuum has not one but two dual-brushes for edge cleaning. They get deep into corners on both sides to whip dirt and debris into the path of the vacuum's central beater bar. This smart little vacuum has smart-sensor navigation. It actually figures out how to adapt to surroundings, avoid obstacles and get every part of your floor while appearing to wander aimlessly. I make fun because having the Shark ION seems like having another pet. It's so fun to watch! Heck, anything that wants to clean house for me is fun to watch and deserves my undying love!  Shark ION also has a low profile design so it gets under furniture with ease. It's WI-FI enabled, so you can actually schedule it to run regularly using the free app! I highly recommend it!Buy Now

    Men

    • Men’s Health and Vibrancy

      One of the most underrated gifts one can give is the gift of good health and vibrancy. Men lose testosterone as they age. By age 45, they may have lost 25-50%!  Testosterone isn't just for the libido (quit giggling ladies!) It can influence many physiological functions including energy levels, metabolism (belly fat), muscle loss, muscle soreness, etc. Progene naturally supports testosterone production by providing the body the ingredients needed to produce more testosterone. Why not give your man the gift of feeling better, having more energy and even looking better and more fit.  Progene is natural testosterone support for men.  Progene's easy saliva-based, clinical-grade, at-home testosterone test kit means you can finally find out more without dragging him to the doctors office at great cost!  Sold nationwide at RiteAid, GNC, VitaminShoppe, Amazon, and more.CLICK HERE

    Pampered Home

    • PeachSkinSheets

      PeachSkinSheets has every size imaginable. Their extra deep pockets make sure your sheets stay put. But more importantly, these aren't cheap sheets. Compared to similarly priced sheets I purchased at my local big box store, these PeachSkinSheets are soft and dreamy feeling. After multiple washings, they're still sturdy and intact. And, they're still soft. The cheap sheets don't even compare! Their King Size 5 Piece Set For Adjustable Beds that are Split completely from top to bottom, rather than "Split Head", which is only split 34" from the top (see diagram for a comparison).  Set includes one 110" x 102" Flat Sheet, TWO 39" x 80" Deep Pocket EXTRA LONG TWIN Fitted Sheets for mattresses up to 18" thick including memory foam, custom number and double pillow top heights, and two 20" x 40" King Pillowcases with European Envelope Closures.  To compare shades side by side rather than individual slides, view our complete color chart at a glance. HIGHLY recommended!Buy Now

    • Ninja Coffee Bar Brewer System with Glass Carafe

      A few years ago I reviewed a Ninja Coffee Bar system. I loved it, and told you about it here. But, unfortunately, that design didn't work as well as I hoped and my coffee bar bit the dust. The good folks at Ninja sent me a replacement, which is redesigned in a much better way! The controls are all on the side - not on the bottom, so any water that leaks out (and it did, in the old version) doesn't sit on the delicate controls. I'm sure that is what went wrong with the first one. This new design is much improved! I love the Ninja Coffee Bar and highly recommend it!Buy Now
    • Shark ION Robot Vacuum

      Shark ION ROBOT 750 Vacuum with Wi-Fi Connectivity + Voice Control, (RV750) works with Alexa! The Shark ION robot vacuum is similar to iRobot Roomba vacuum. Unlike Roomba, which only makes robot vacuums, Shark is a market-leader in upright vacuums. It only makes sense that their robot vacuum would just be... better. The Shark robot vacuum has not one but two dual-brushes for edge cleaning. They get deep into corners on both sides to whip dirt and debris into the path of the vacuum's central beater bar. This smart little vacuum has smart-sensor navigation. It actually figures out how to adapt to surroundings, avoid obstacles and get every part of your floor while appearing to wander aimlessly. I make fun because having the Shark ION seems like having another pet. It's so fun to watch! Heck, anything that wants to clean house for me is fun to watch and deserves my undying love!  Shark ION also has a low profile design so it gets under furniture with ease. It's WI-FI enabled, so you can actually schedule it to run regularly using the free app! I highly recommend it!Buy Now
