Aulker Heart Rate Smart Fitness Band Activity Tracker

I am a big fan of fitness trackers, however I am not a big fan of the price tag that you pay for a name brand device. With today's technology, the top brands really do not have much to offer over a standard or generic device. For this reason, I have decided to look to Amazon for my next fitness tracker. I have settled on the Aulker Heart Rate Pedometer Smart Band.

To use this device, you install an app on your Apple or Android device and connect the bracelet via BlueTooth. This is fairly simple to do once you have the app on your phone. Then it is ready to start tracking your fitness and get you to a healthier life!

One of my favorite features of the bracelet is that it can track your heart rate. Previous devices that I have owned did not have this capability. It also has an alarm alert, sleep tracker, and call and text alerts among other things. I cannot get over all of the features that the Aulker bracelet can do and I am sure I will be finding more out the longer that I use it.

Overall, I am rather impressed with this fitness tracker. It does everything that I could as for and is available at a decent price on Amazon.com. Check out the full listing today: Aulker Fitness Tracker!

I received this product at a discounted rate in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. Regardless, all opinions are my own.

Groupon Coupons, Helping You Save!

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own.  #GrouponCoupons #ad
I have used groupon many times in the past for finding deals and booking events, but one thing I didn't know that they offered, until recently, was access to coupons! I'm so excited to learn that there are so many brands willing to offer exclusive deals to the Groupon Community! To access these deals, simply head over to https://www.groupon.com/coupons. There you are greeted with a page listing over 80,000 free coupons!

I would love to share with you my 2 favorite stores offering coupons: Blue Nile and Things Remembered!

If you have never used Blue Nile, you should check out their website immediately! You can browse engagement rings and various other jewelry options and even pick out and design your own diamond ring. My husband ended up purchasing my engagement ring on the site and the process was quick and easy. I love my diamond and he couldn't have done a better job in selecting it. However, had I known that Groupon had coupons just for Blue Nile, I would have sent my husband there first! There are numerous necklaces and items that would make great gift ideas just check out Groupon first to get access to the deals!

Things Remembered is another store that I truly enjoy shopping at. There are so many gift ideas to choose from and each one can be personalized to your liking. In the coupon section of Groupon, you can get up to $15 off or 20% with their exclusive coupon codes. Check them out today!

Kitchen Organization Thanks to Youcopia! Giveaway ends 12/21/16

My husband and I have just purchased our first home and we are going to try and keep it as neat and organized as possible. I know this is going to be a big challenge, and most likely improbable, but thanks to the kind folks at Youcopia, we will atleast keep the kitchen a bit more put together!

I currently have three Youcopia products, and each one has done a wonderful job serving its purpose! I am so happy to share these with you and one of my readers will even have the opportunity to win some for themselves!
First is the adjustable lid or pan holder. It makes it super easy to store my new frying pans and their lids sideways in the cabinet. This way I don't have to move every single item in the cabinet to get to the largest frying pan that is stored at the bottom! The lid holder comes with 7 moveable dividers so you can place large or small lids on the holder and everything will fit snugly.
Another product I had the chance to test was the Food Container Storage Organizer. This product is simple to use, you just place it in a pull out drawer and store your to-go containers on it. It seems like when I am packing my lunch in the morning, I end up going through nearly every lid I own until I find the one that fits! Never again with this organized set!

The last product that I have from YouCopia is an amazing spice rack. This thing keeps my spice drawer organized and easy to access. I no longer slowly open the door and hope nothing falls on my head! I can be safe and secure in my own kitchen! I have to say that this is my favorite product so far.

My favorite aspect of these products is that they can be ordered online, or you can stop in your local Target and check to see if they have them prior to purchasing!  If you would like the opportunity to own some YouCopia products for yourself, enter the contest below! The winner will have the chance to pick any product of their choice, up to $40. Good Luck!

Win a YouCopia product of your choice #16

Chipex Car Paint Chip Repair- Review & Giveaway (Ends 11/3)

I don't know about you, but my car is covered in small paint chips. Most of my driving is done on the highway and small stones turn into tiny terrors for my car! To top it off, I purchased my 2010 Dodge Avenger used last year and the previous owner had tried to fix a few paint chips on their own. I'm not sure how they got their paint, but it is significantly darker and stands out!
Up until now, I really didn't know how to go about fixing the chips on my car. Then, I came across Chipex and it was exactly what I wanted! I am a DIYer, so there was no way I would be paying a paint shop to fix up my small chips, doing it on my own with Chipex is easy and fun!
So what exactly is Chipex? It is a revolutionary car paint touch-up system that matches your paint color exactly and looks flawless once applied. Ordering your kit is easy, simply choose the size you want and know your paint color and you're done! It is applied in a three step process: 1. Paint 2. Blend 3. Polish. I am very pleased with the results- and as you can see - you can hardly tell that my car had a scratch at all!
If you are interested in this product, be sure to check out their website: http://www.chipex.com/ and enter their giveway below!

SySrion Air Dry Clay- 24 Color Craft Kit

As a kid, one of my favorite things to do was play with my polymer clay. I had a book with different clay ideas and I loved paging through it to find my next project. The only thing that stopped me from finishing projects was that the clay had to be baked to become hard. Sometimes my parent's weren't ready to start up the oven, or I only had one or two small pieces, so it would be a lot of work for something so small. Time would pass and my unfinished pieces would end up smashed and unable to be recovered.

All of these problems could be easily solved if I had been using air dry clay. This set of 24 color clays by SySrion is perfect. The box seems small, but once you open it up, it is filled to the brim! There are 24 different colored clays, which can be mixed together to make nearly any shade imaginable. The kit also comes with a few additional accessories, including goggly eyes, animal noses, ring mounts, molds and clay cutting tools.

The clay is incredibly light and easy to mold to your desired shapes. It fully hardens in about 24 hours, so you will be able to play with everything and not worry about it getting hard while in use. I love that the kit also includes small zip lock bags to keep the clay fresh for your next use. The clay is completely eco-friendly so there is no need to worry about any harmful materials getting to your kids.

Overall, I highly recommend this set if your kids are interested in creating shapes and their own special toys. This is fun and easy to clean up and use. A great gift idea, at a reasonable price! I am very satisfied with SySrion!

T400 Jewelers Authentic Swarovski Elements Crystal Bangle

Jewelry is something that it is very hard to dislike- especially when it contains Swarovski elements. Every girl dreams of receiving the perfect earrings or necklace in just her style. That is why I am a big fan of T400 Jewelers! They are one of the official franchisers of the Swarovski Corporation and they specialize in the sale of exquisite sterling silver, brass and Swarovski Crystal fashion jewelry on Amazon.

I was fortunate enough to receive a stunning 6.7 inch bracelet featuring an aquamarine stone. The jewelry arrived in a perfect gift box, complete with a bow. This would be an a great gift idea and the fact that it is currently priced at only $20.99 on Amazon really has me looking to purchase a few for Christmas gifts!

The bangle is 6.7 inches with a 1.97 inch extender. If features one. pear shaped aquamarine Swarovski Elements crystal. The bracelet is an eco-friendly, white gold plated alloy. This bracelet is fashionable and could be worn in nearly any setting. The gift box includes a cleaning cloth to keep your bracelet in tip-top shape. If you are interested in purchasing T400 Jewelry products, I highly recommend them! I was amazed at the quality and workmanship of my bracelet! Check out their Amazon storefront here: T400 Storefront.

1Byone 50 Miles Range Digital Outdoor HDTV Antenna

Cable is one of the biggest unnecessary bills that you can have. As a soon to be newly wed, we will be purchasing our first home in just a few months. I was shocked to hear the prices that my friends and family pay just so they can view their televisions every night! Every single person paid over $100 a month!! This is one cost I am hoping to avoid.

Previously we had a rabbit-ear type antenna. With it, we were able to pick up 5 different channels, which included 2 local news stations. We thought we were doing pretty well, that is until I received the 1byone 50 mile range digital outdoor HDTV Antenna! This product has doubled our viewing capacity, and we now receive 11 crystal clear channels.

This is with scanning for channels and keeping the antenna inside. We have not yet tested how many channels we could receive if we placed the receiver outside of our window. Overall, I am very happy with this product and can say that it receives many more channels than your standard antenna.

If you are interested in purchasing a 1Byone Digital Antenna for yourself, you can purchase it directly on Amazon  or on 1Byone's website: www.1byone.com. Thanks for reading!

Marsboy Wireless Bluetooth Speaker with LED Lights

Bluetooth speakers are the way of the future. No more cords, no need to be tethered to the speakers with the freedom to go wherever you please! Marsboy an amazing LED Bluetooth speaker that will keep you and your guests entertained for hours on end! The LED lights are vibrant and change color right in time with the song you are listening to.

As soon as you pull it out of the box, it is ready to go. Mine arrived partially charged and the functions are basically self explanatory. There are pause/play buttons, forward/back buttons, volume controls, mode and light pattern buttons. You have the ability to plug in your device using the included aux cord, insert a micro-SD card, or listen via Bluetooth.

One of my favorite features of this Marsboy speaker is that it contains an internal battery that is charged with a micro-usb cord. This is likely the same cord that charges your phone, tablets and so many more things, making it so easy to charge the speaker without having to worry about finding the cord! When someone calls you while listening to music on your phone , the speaker will automatically pick it up and turn it into speakerphone mode.

I am really amazed at the sound quality that the Marsboy Wireless speaker puts out. It is crystal clear and can get very loud if you wish. The distance that the Bluetooth is able to connect is also outstanding. We were able to have a steady stream when the phone was on the other side of the house. Overall, I highly recommend this speaker. It works exactly as described and is packed with features!

1byone Belt Driven Bluetooth Vintage Style Record Player

My fiancé's current record player is a bit worn out and really needs replacing. You literally have to smack it (like the Fonz) to get the record to spin! So, I have been in search of a high quality record player to replace it for quite awhile now. It seems whenever I find one, it is either very expensive or just not up the quality I would expecting. Records are making a huge comeback so a turntable is a must have for my fiancé and I!

1byone's Vintage style turntable is beautiful! The wood grain base is exquisite and really shows that time and dedication was put into producing it. The plastic shield protects the records and the needle, both while playing and in storage. When closed, it does not muffle the sound or have any effects on the quality of play. I am also in awe of the sound quality produced by the player. Without even needing to hook up additional speakers, I can hear every note as it was meant to be heard.

I love that this turntable has the ability to record directly from your vinyl records to MP3 clips. There is even a USB drive and Bluetooth option to play files from or record too. This player really has all the options that you could possibly need. All wrapped up into one beautifully executed modern turntable! The 1byone belt driven turntable will definitely be replacing my fiancé's old one right away!

Check out all of the features:

• Traditional Style, Solid Wood Appearance & Dust Cover - with selectable 33 / 45 / 78 RPM speed settings.
• Vinyl-to-MP3 Recording - the ability to transform audio from vinyl records into USB mp3 format and save it on your MP3 player.
• Built-in Full Range Stereo Speakers - the stereo active 2-way system creates an optimized sound and clarity across all genres of music.
• Bluetooth & Plug and Play - Compatible with all of your Favorite Devices (iPhone, Android, Smartphone, Tablet, PC, USB-MP3 Player, etc).
• Classic Turntable Design with Modern Technology - A balanced blend of modernity and mid-century charm, but with all modern key features.

Be sure to check out 1byone at their official website for all of their awesome and upcoming products: http://www.1byone.com/
If you'd like to purchase on Amazon, check out their full listing here.
Otherwise, they are also available for purchase directly at: http://www.1byone.com/Audio-Sounds/Turntable/471US-0002
