I was quite impressed when receiving these knives. They came in a box, protected with a thick foam and the tip of the knives had a plastic tip for protection while not in use. These knives are lightweight but seem to be well-made and heavy duty at the same time. The set comes with a 3” paring knife, 5” slicing knife, and a 6” chef's knife. These knives are ceramic so they won't rust or corrode like most metal knives. I've had no issues with them as of yet, they are sharp, cut well, are easy to use and clean. I store my knife set in the Adjustable Ceramic Knife Stand from Ozeri. The stand is sleek and space-efficient. I like that it can stand straight up or show it off a little at and angle. This is a great knife set and stand and recommend them.

I have never owned a salad spinner and actually never knew it existed. After reading about it, I was interested to see what it was all about. For those who are like me and didn't know what it actually does, it washes and removes excess water from your salad. At first, I had a hard time getting it to spin because I jam packed it with lettuce and spinach, but when I took some out and tried again, it worked great. It is very easy to use, just fill the colander with your salad greens, put the lid on the bowl, pump the handle a few times and it starts spinning instantly. If you want or need it to stop before it does on its own, just press the stop button and it will halt immediately. Then you just take out the colander and dump out the water that is in the bowl. I was surprised and a little grossed out to see how dirty the greens really are. I haven't used this for pasta yet, but I'm sure it will work great for that too. The colander and bowl can be used separately, are both dishwasher-safe and BPA Free. I haven't had any issues with the salad spinner so far but I do like that it comes with a 1 year warranty just in case I do.

Ozeri BP5K Digital Blood Pressure Monitor with Voice-Guided Positioning and Hypertension Indicator Review
Wednesday, July 27, 2016
I love that the lipsticks are highly pigmented and go on and feel very smooth. They also have a great smell to them, kind of close to a vanilla scent in my opinion. I also love that these have more of a matte look to them over the normal shine.
I absolutely love these lipsticks from Feral Cosmetics and definitely want to get the other two colors now. You can buy them on their website, Feral Cosmetics, or on Amazon.

Curva Artisan Series Double Wall Beverage Glasses and Tumblers - Unique 8 oz Thermo Insulated Drinking Glasses, Set of 4 Review
I got these Curva Artisan Series Double Wall Beverage Glasses because I love the 16 oz ones that I got from the same company, Ozeri. They are made of borosilicate glass, which is said to be stronger and more durable than common glass. I didn't want to test this by dropping one of my glasses, but I like that they come with a 1 year warranty just in case. They each have a cool curvature that holds 8 ounces. Besides the cool designs, I love that these glasses have a double wall so when I use them for a cold drink, I don't have to worry about the mess of condensation. I have used these for juice, soda, water, and mixed drinks. I can't wait to use these at our next get together.
