Ozeri Serafino Double Wall Glasses #Review

Ozeri Serafino Glasses

As many people do, I must have my morning coffee.  I have a few favorite mugs that I usually rotate, but that has all changed.  I have a new fav that is now the only one for my coffee, and everything else I drink too.

I received the Ozeri Serafino Double Wall Glasses in both 12 and 16 oz. sizes.  These glasses are made mouth-blown borosilicate glass.   Which means they are:

  • durable
  • heat resistant
  • shatter resistant
  • resistant to acids
  • oven and microwave safe
  • dishwasher safe ( though hand washing is preferred)

When I heard double wall, I thought heavy.  That's also what I was expecting when I picked up the box, and it barely weighed anything.  Besides being lightweight, these glasses are shaped to grip easily and comfortably.  Not to mention that they just look neat after pouring in your favorite drink.

I made sure I put the "perfect for hot or cold beverages" statement to the test, and they passed with flying colors.  I love that these glasses don't sweat and make a mess when having an ice cold drink.  That's a pet peeve of mine.

I also had my hand wrapped around the glass as I poured in my steaming hot coffee without burning my hand or feeling any heat.  Yet my drink inside the glass stays hot or cold.

Since taking them out of the box, I have not used any of my other glasses.  That's another score for Ozeri. Check out my other Ozeri product reviews below.

I'm A Positivity Angel - Jewelry Review & Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

positivity bracelets

"Attitude Is A Choice And POSITIVITY Is Contagious!"

Pass along and share some positivity with Alexa's Angels Positivity Bracelet Sets.  Alexa's Angels was founded in 1995 by Beth Lang selling her jewelry creations.  Since then Beth and "her angels" have grown into a innovative fashion accessory company.  Each jewelry piece is designed to inspire and create connections.  Alexa's Angels is proud to be a company dedicated to creating and supporting programs benefiting women.

The Positivity Bracelets were created after a tornado hit a community in Colorado, where Alexa's Angels is headquartered.  As a way to spread hope and in trying to keep a positive attitude during a tradgedy, the bracelets were an immediate hit.

Alexa's AngelsThese bracelets aren't just for connecting people during a hardship, but also during happy times like weddings and family gatherings.

They make great gifts for family, friends, supporting your favorite cause, or even a fundraiser for your school's sports team.

The bracelets arrived so beautifully packaged as you can see in the photo to the right.  Included with the bracelets is a card explaining Alexa's Angels "pass it on" concept.

Keep one for yourself and share the others.  Have fun passing on the positivity.  I shared mine with my hubby and daughter because I want my family to have a more positive attitude. 

I have always thought of myself as an optimist, but there was a time not that long ago where my positive attitude must have went on vacation without me.  We had some rough years after having our daughter with work layoffs, moves and such things.  It seemed like a domino effect of one bad thing after another with no light at the end of the tunnel.

When times are tough like this it's very easy to become negative.  You just keep waiting for the next ball to drop and that's exactly what happens with that kind of negative attitude.

Finally one day I just couldn't take it anymore and told myself that I've got to change this course we're on.

I knew I had to start thinking more positive.  I do believe that the more positive energy you send out, the more you also receive back.

I'll admit it wasn't so easy at first, but I continue  
to get better at it everyday.  And guess what?.....
It really does work.

Just within the last 1 1/2 years, things have continued to improve dramatically, and I can start to see that glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel.

Now on those days when I think my day is taking a turn for the worse, I just look down at my wrist and try to change it all around.  No matter what happens, if you dig deep enough you can always find something positive about the situation.

The bracelets come in sets of 3 in a variety of colors.   They are stretchy and one size fits all, and they did fit my 10 year old's wrist, mine and also my hubby's.  Check them all out <here>. 

The back side of the bracelet directs you to the Share Your Positivity blog.  You'll find inspirational stories, encouragement and other stories of passing on the positivity.  Also share your own positive story, photos or quotes.


Enter to win a Set of 3 Positivity Bracelets below.  Giveaway is open to the U.S. and ends 4/27/14 at 12:00 a.m.  Good Luck!

Rhinestone Birthday Girl Tank Review & Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Rhinestone Birthday Girl Tank Top

I'm one of those who likes to announce to everybody when it's my birthday.  I like to make it a big ordeal and wear buttons, hats or anything that says I'm the birthday girl.  I've also learned that this gets me special freebies when out on the town celebrating.

I received a birthday girl rhinestone tank from Advantage Bridal to wear on my big day.  Advantage Bridal is an online retailer of wedding accessories, invitations, party favors, and apparel that specializes in customization.  They offer over 24,000 bridal accessories and thousands of personalized items through their partner sites.

You'll find absolutely everything you could want or need at Advantage Bridal to create your perfect day to remember.  Get your invitations, party favors, gifts, bridal shoes, monogramed apparel and more all in one place for an affordable price.  If you're not wedding shopping, they also offer baby shower items and other personalized gifts.

I was very pleased with the birthday girl rhinestone top.  It is a 100% cotton ribbed tank top and comes in sizes S-2XL.  The rhinestone embroidery is very well done.  I haven't lost any rhinestones during washing or wearing like I always do with most other rhinestone shirts I've owned.

Brithday Girl Tank Outfit

This tank is comfortable and can be worn with so many different things.  You can go for a casual look during the day and then dress it up in the evening if you're going out on the town.  I wore mine with some cute jeans and heels.   

Enter below for a chance to win your own birthday girl rhinestone tank.  Giveway is open to U.S. and ends 4/14/14 at 12:00 a.m.  Good Luck to everyone.
