LOREX LIVE SD3.5 Video Baby Monitor with Digital Recording and Remote Viewing (LW2401) Review

Lorex Video Baby Monitor LW2401 ReviewBabies and young children require constant attention and careful monitoring for their safety. Parents typically set up baby monitors to do the job, allowing parents to be on another floor of the house or outside while still fully aware of their baby’s safety and current state – sleeping, playing, crying, etc. Baby monitors have come a long way since our parents’ day. Now you can get so many more features, especially video capabilities like in the LOREX LIVE SD3.5 Video Baby Monitor, which also allows digital recording and remote connectivity, Skype integration, and more.

My husband and I received a LOREX LIVE SD3.5 Video Baby Monitor for the purpose of this review. I was excited to try it because I feel a video baby monitor offers so much more to parents and caregivers than a standard audio monitor. I was thrilled to notice that my husband was even excited to check it out – primarily because it is a cool tech gadget that he could read about and test all the cool features. This is another huge win for me – if he likes it, I love it.

Video Baby Monitor’s Ease of Use
I’m not exaggerating when I tell you it took him only moments to turn everything on and set it up for practice monitoring. He set up the camera in the kitchen and kept the LCD monitor in the family room with him. The dog and I went into the kitchen to see how everything worked. It was a snap for us to adjust the volume, test all the neat features, and even practice recording footage. The most time you’ll spend setting up is charging the monitor, and you can do that while you sleep!

Two-Way Talk Feature
Then my husband tested out the two-way talk feature – very cool! You can actually talk to your baby or child from the LCD monitor unit, even if you are on a different floor or outside your house. I can see this being very useful when soothing your child. The monitor also has built-in lullabies, which we have yet to test, but this is a wonderful feature I look forward to using often.

Video Monitor’s Digital Recording
We also tested the digital video recording feature and found that to be super easy at the touch of a button and fairly easy in playback as well. This one-touch recording has got to be a huge plus for anyone who doesn’t want to miss one precious moment with a new baby in the house. Record playing, sounds, and motions your baby makes while you aren’t in the room. The video monitor is really smart in that it automatically starts recording when it detects a change in audio level in the room, such as your baby crying. The LIVE SENSE alerts you and video begins recording immediately.

Room Temperature Monitoring and Feeding Alerts
You can also rest easier knowing your baby’s room temperature is being monitored for a constant temp. You will receive an alert if the room becomes too cold or too hot – you’ll find the cool little temperature sensor on the back of the camera. Parents can also set the feeding timer to remind them when baby’s next meal should take place.

Remote Viewing of the Video Baby Monitor
When the monitor is connected to a computer via USB, working parents, remote grandparents, and distant aunts and uncles can see the child in real-time, even from miles and miles away. The unit is compatible with Skype, allowing your video monitor system to be viewed anywhere in the world using a Skype login.

Other Exciting Video Monitor Features
The LOREX LIVE SD3.5 Video Baby Monitor has a gorgeous 3.5” LCD screen for full-screen or split-screen viewing. The device is very portable, roughly the size of a smartphone or just a bit larger, making it a nice fit for your pocket, purse, or tabletop / nightstand. The night-time viewing allows you to get a good night’s sleep without sacrificing your child’s safety. There is a video on/off button for this purpose as well, with the audio remaining intact.

The LOREX LIVE SD3.5 Video Baby Monitor system is expandable up to four cameras so you can simply add to your system as your family grows. You may also wish to use this unit as a monitoring system for your pets so you can watch your dog or cat while you are at work. It also works nicely as a home security system, giving you peace of mind knowing your home is under surveillance.

The LOREX LIVE SD3.5 Video Baby Monitor comes with a camera, rechargeable LCD monitor with base, two power adapters, MicroSD memory card, software CD, and three safety clips for assembling your monitor system. The LOREX LIVE SD3.5 Video Baby Monitor works with iPad™, iPhone™, and personal computers.

Fuzzy Bunny Slippers Review

Fuzzy bunny slippersFuzzy bunny slippers have been a guilty pleasure of mine since I was about 12 or 13. For some reason I just thought they were cuter and comfier than other slippers, no matter what the animal or theme. Luckily a few brands still make bunny slippers for adults, so I happily purchased a pair of cushy, fuzzy white bunny slippers for myself just about two weeks ago. They arrived promptly in my mailbox and I’ve been wearing them ever since.

I ordered my white ladies fuzzy bunny slippers from Amazon and I’m very pleased with my purchase. These are quite possibly the most comfortable slippers I’ve ever owned, and there’s just something endearing about a pair of white bunny rabbit slippers. Each slipper has a white bunny face with two black eyes, pink nose, pink mouth, chubby cheeks, whiskers, and two ears that can stick up or flop over.

The slippers are large and well-cushioned. I am pretty sure my border collie thinks they are her own personal toys while I’m sleeping. She likes to get them and bring them to me in the morning – I’m not sure if she’s saying, “Hey, time to get up!” or “here, I thought you’d like this.”

The bottoms of each bunny slipper have little white nonslip dots to help give you traction while walking around your home, particularly on slippery floors. I have absolutely no complaints about these slippers and I am sure I will buy them again whenever this pair bites the dust.

If you want your own comfortable and adorable white bunny slippers, I recommend these same ones I bought, available at Amazon.com for $16.99 by SG Footewear. They are available in sizes 5-6, 7-8, and 9-10.


Boring Band-aids No More! Cynthia Rowley Adds Style and Shine for Your Little Boo-Boos

Cynthia Rowley band-aids reviewGone are the days of boring nude-colored band-aids used to conceal and help heal a cut or other wound. You may have seen little kids’ bandages with cartoon characters or other fun designs, but choices for adults have been lacking. Beyond the clear band-aids, there really haven’t been a lot of choices for women when it comes to dressing (up) a wound. Until now…

Johnson and Johnson has partnered with fashion designer Cynthia Rowley to bring us Band-aid bandages with fashionable designs showing off sequins, gold chains, bows, and more. The bandages also feature a signature blue band-aid with the designer’s name surrounded by zigzags.

Cynthia Rowley band-aids reviewThe stylish band-aids come in a chic black package with raised and glossy print. Each box of band-aids contains 10 small and 10 large bandages in a variety of patterns and styles. You’ll find everything from multi-colored sequin patterns to pink bows on a blue background, gold chains on a black background, gemstone patterns, and so much more.

These colorful band-aids will be great for a fashionable fix for your next boo-boo or a creative way to get your little fashionista’s mind off a small injury with a cute bandage to cover it.

The texture of the band-aids reminds me of some fun vinyl stickers I used to have when I was a teenager. The white trim gives a nice emphasis to the other colors in each distinctive band-aid style. Even if you aren’t familiar with Cynthia Rowley, you can certainly appreciate new bandage options with colors and patterns that sweetly replace traditional band-aid bandages.

These specialty bandages came out for pre-release with New York’s Fashion Night Out. The full release is planned for mass retail stores sometime around the holidays. This product will be available for $4.25 per box in various retail stores as a regular part of the product line.

Consider these tips and trends on hot nail polish colors you can enjoy as a sneak peek in fall 2011 – the New York Fashion Week Spring / Summer 2012 nail color preview!

Backstage at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Spring / Summer 2012, the Dashing Diva hot nail polish colors and trends previewing for the coming spring season included a series of natural, buff nail polish colors and timeless, sexy reds. This is a good reminder that just about any time you can be safe with a red or nude mani or pedi. The colors and finishes are changing every season, of course. Dashing Diva’s Chelsea in the Buff and Season Tickets polish led the way for nude tones while The Red Carpet polish rounded out the bold and vibrant red scene.

OPI at New York Fashion Week included more of the same – subtle, neutral shades and a pop of red for an effective accent color for your nails. OPI’s MonSooner or Later (OPI Classics) is characterized by a bright orangey-red hue that works well at accessorizing an outfit. The pedicure choice for models at the fashion show was Samoan Sand (OPI Classics), which is a soft pink-toned nude. Other colors on display at New York Fashion Week – Spring/Summer 2012 include manicures of Stranger Tides (Pirates of the Caribbean) in a gray-green pastel shade and pedicures in a nude shade, Tickle My France-y (OPI Classics).

“The most important thing to remember about nails is to have fun with it. Make mistakes, test out new colors, and see what you think works best for you,” says Aija Vilemsonne, Creative Director of Pretty Woman USA.

Vilemsonne notes that some of the other hot nail polish colors include shades of blue and especially denim, metallic nail polish colors, and nude nail colors seem to be the way to go. Stay tuned for more details on fall 2011 nail polish colors and trends, as well as hot nail hues for the New Year.

I was excited to learn about Crazy Rumors Fresh Squeezed Lip Balm and even happier to receive two flavors for the purpose of this review. Four citrus flavors make up this organic beauty collection, including Orange Juice, Pink Grapefruit, Lemonade, and Limeaid.

I really enjoyed the citrus flavors of the Crazy Rumors Fresh Squeezed lip balms. I got to try Pink Grapefruit and Limeaid, which are both very refreshing. These lip products have a slightly waxy taste as well, but it’s not a bad taste – just an organic kind of taste. Crazy Rumors lip balms are also cruelty free and vegan certified products. They contain natural and organic ingredients to soothe your lips and keep your kisses soft. Certified organic ingredients include Jojoba oil, extra virgin olive oil, Shea butter, and Vitamin E.

I would love to try the lemonade and orange juice flavors one day as well. I’m impressed with both the pink grapefruit and limeaid varieties – very yummy and nice to have on hand on a hot summer day or any time of year.

Guardian Technologies’ Germguardian 3-in-1 Tabletop Air Cleaning System Review (Model AC4010)

Germguardian Tabletop Air PurifierNot to make us sound sickly, but my husband has asthma and I get really bad seasonal allergies in the spring. Since we both have issues with breathing at some point or another, I was interested to see what I could do to improve the quality of the air inside our home. I received a Germguardian 3-in-1 Tabletop Air Cleaning System by Guardian Technologies® for the purpose of this review. Let me tell you, we’ve been using it for a week or so and I’m already impressed. This home air purifier showed me real results the very first time I used it.

We set up our 3-in-1 UV power true HEPA odor reduction air cleaning system in our bedroom on top of my husband’s tall dresser. It plugs into the outlet that turns on and off with a small lamp, so it is a nice setup that we can easily control without reaching for the device every time to turn it off or on. We’ve probably run our home air purifier for about 10 hours or more so far. Even the first day when we ran it for about two hours continuously, I immediately noticed that our bedroom had a different scent – very clean and pure! It smelled markedly different and I was thrilled for the immediate change.

The Germguardian 3-in-1 Tabletop Air Cleaning System is designed for small to medium-sized rooms and processes the air in a 200-square-foot room every hour, with a focus on removing odor as well as smoke particles, capturing allergens, pet dander, and dust, and killing airborne mold spores and other unwanted particles. The tabletop air purifier harnesses the power of UV light and filters with charcoal to kill germs. The cleaning efficiency is rated at capturing 99.97% of germs and particles in the air, passing through the filter at size .3 microns or greater.

At a glance the air purifying unit reminds me of a standard black alarm clock without all the buttons and dials. It is sleek and unobtrusive, so you can put it in just about any room in the house. Since we spend a considerable amount of time sleeping each day, keeping our unit in the bedroom made the most sense for us. The purifier produces white noise, which can aid those who find difficulty in getting to sleep. It is fairly quiet, but I don’t think we would watch television and run the purifier at the same time in our room.

Germguardian recommends replacing the filter every six months. I really enjoy the clean air and odor removal that this unit provides and I will absolutely be purchasing replacement filters so we can continue using this device to enhance our living areas.

The AC4010 Tabletop 3-in-1 True HEPA Air Cleaning System lists at $99.99 and retails for $69.99. For more information on Germguardian air cleaning products or Guardian Technologies, please check out www.germguardian.com and www.guardiantechnologies.com.


Choices in Classy Lingerie, Bras, and Underwear for Women

Very best lingerie for different occasionsLingerie, bras, ladies underwear, and intimate accessories allow a girl to feel flirty and sexy. A woman can reserve sexy lingerie for special occasions or she can alternate through her intimates on a daily basis. It is important for a woman to have a varied wardrobe of bras and underwear to suit her regular garments, such as tight pants or skirts, nearly sheer shirts and dresses, and white clothing that might show any other color bra or panty. Consider these other tips on lingerie and choices in intimate apparel.

Whether you have a hot date or an ongoing lingerie fetish, it can be fun and exciting to have a variety of sexy garments and accessories to dress up your body under your clothing. Consider these fun and fashionable choices for ladies bras, underwear, and lingerie you can enjoy for special occasions or any time.

Sexy and Functional Bras of All Kinds

It’s a common belief that all women should own a black lace bra and matching thong or panty for that special date night. A white bra is also important for when you wear a slightly sheer white top or dress, and a nude colored bra can also do the trick for light colored clothing. But there are so many fun colors and styles of bras! You can find everything from functional bras providing support, especially like a cotton sports bra for working out and silk bras for nice occasions.

Bras come in all shapes and sizes. Different bra styles are suitable for all the occasions you’ll encounter, from formal dances like proms and homecoming or weddings, comfortable bras for everyday wear, and so forth. You can choose from halter bras, convertible bras, sports bras, cupless bras, front opening bras, transparent bras / invisible bras, and so many others. Animal print bras like a leopard print bra can be a lot of fun as well.

You can also dress up your existing convertible bras and strapless bras with fashion bra straps to go along with your wardrobe and fancy tops and dresses. These pretty bra straps may come in a wide array of colors and styles, including rhinestones, pearls, and semi-precious metals, among others.

Ladies Underwear, Thongs, and Panties

Countless types and styles of ladies underwear are available to suit just about any outfit. Look for a ladies thong to go with your dress slacks and tight pants or skirts. You can find frilly panties to give you a girlie look or a sheer bikini or see thru underwear for coverage that is still quite sexy. Micro panties offer a very seductive look that can be a low-rise panty or low-rise ladies thong or g-string.

When you feel the inclination for a frisky evening, let your wild side loose with a crotchless panty or a garter belt with clippies and thigh-highs. You can wear your sexy panties and lingerie under your clothing as a secret surprise for your significant other. It usually works best to have a nice selection of undergarments to go with all of your outfits for all your needs.

The Very Best Lingerie for Any Occasion

Sexy lingerie for every body type

Lingerie shopping can be lots of fun! Depending on your body type, you can find the very best lingerie styles for your curves. Women can find petite lingerie for small frames and plus-size lingerie for curvier frames. The practically endless styles, colors, and patterns of lingerie keep things interesting and exciting as the seasons change and new colors and styles become available.

Fun patterns like hot pink with bling, animal prints, and camouflage lingerie, to name a few, make great choices for playful lingerie. Classic black lingerie works well for a seductress look while white lace lingerie can be perfect for weddings and honeymoons. Racy red lingerie is always a hit! Some top styles of lingerie to add to your wardrobe may include baby dolls (like short little night dresses), corsets, and legwear, to name just a few. Long nightdresses can be elegant and sexy while teddies can be a racy option for your evening.

A popular time of year to shop for sexy lingerie is often during the end of January and beginning of February, leading up to Valentine’s Day. You should be able to find beautiful Valentine’s baby doll lingerie as a sweet evening outfit for your romantic day of love. Don’t forget to choose some sexy lingerie around the holidays and especially in time for your honeymoon. For best results, go to a lingerie shop at least once to find your size in most styles. Then you can look around in person or online, finding the perfect lingerie for your body and your style preferences.


Did You Get an HP Touchpad This Weekend? There’s Still Time…

Buy a discounted HP Touchpad!HP’s firesale on the Touchpad (32gb and 16gb) exploded this weekend, causing customers to scramble far and wide, vying for a device of their own. The HP Touchpads were marked down to 75% off the retail price, coming in at $99 for the 16gb Touchpad and $149 for the 32gb Touchpad. After countless phone calls and numerous fruitless trips out to the stores – Staples, Walmart, Best Buy – I finally decided to give up. But then my pal gave me links so I could still get my hands on a discounted HP Touchpad this weekend!

For anyone still interested in getting the HP Touchpad at a discounted price, either for themselves or as a gift for someone, there are still a few options for last-minute clearance devices. I highly recommend watching slickdeals.net for the latest and greatest. I would also recommend watching prices on Amazon and checking back to HP’s site regularly.

Today Amazon decided to drop the prices to match the manufacturer’s offerings. I managed to play my order, but it seems the prices have since been increased. Here are the links just in case the pricing comes back to the low, low rates I had:

HP FB356UT Smart Buy Touch Pad QUALCOMM Snapdragon APQ8060 1.2 GHz 802.11 a/b/g/n Wireless 9.7″ IPS TFT 1GB RAM 32GB

FB454UT Smartbuy TouchPad QUALCOMM Snapdragon APQ8060 1.2 GHz 802.11 a/b/g/n Wireless 9.7″ IPS TFT 1GB RAM 16GB

Buying online from a favorite retailer like Amazon proved much more relaxing for me than running out to the stores where it felt as if employees (who had probably already cashed in on the deal) were mocking the line of customers pouring into the stores for this sick deal. Here’s the scoop – if you like gadgets, surfing the Web, checking email, and viewing photos and videos, it really doesn’t get much better than $99 and $149! If you still want to buy a Touchpad, you might be in luck if you can find a current deal. Good luck to anyone looking to buy one of these bad boys – I wouldn’t delay too long if you are, since I almost didn’t get one.


How to Get Wet or Dry Liquid Foundation out of a White Shirt (or Other Piece of Clothing)

Did you ever spill liquid foundation or coverup makeup on a white shirt, light piece of clothing, or any article of clothing for that matter? It’s got to be right up there with spaghetti sauce stains and lily pollen stains. Thankfully, I found a solution to liquid foundation stains on clothing that has worked every time for me so far! If you are wondering how to get a wet or dry liquid foundation stain out of your clothing or fabric, these steps should help you tremendously, even days later!

An old bottle of liquid foundation makeup splattered when I tried to get just a dab out of the bottle. It got all over my brand-new white off-shirt, of course. Here are the steps I used when it was still wet, and again today when doing laundry and I noticed I had missed a spot that had somehow gotten on the back of my shirt (?!).

How to Remove Liquid Foundation Stains from Clothing

Try these simple steps to remove both wet and dry liquid foundation splatter and stains from clothing.

1.DO NOT rub the stain into the fabric. Take off whatever garment just got splattered and set it aside.

2.Gather these materials – foam makeup wedge or spare toothbrush used for cleaning and a can of plain white shaving cream, and get set up at the sink.

3.Pour some cold water over the stain.

4.Dispense a dab of shaving cream onto the makeup wedge.

5.Use either the foam wedge or the toothbrush to gently rub the shaving cream into the garment wherever the stains are located.

6.Inspect the stained area after about 20-30 seconds. You should see marked improvement – the makeup stain should appear much, much lighter.

7.For dried foundation stains on clothing, you may need to gently scrub a little longer.

8.Let the shaving cream sit on the garment for a minute or two.

9.Rinse away the shaving cream and toss your garments in the washing machine on cold, gentle cycle, if washable.

10.DO NOT put them in the dryer or use heat to dry. This will set any remaining stains permanently.

I wish I had thought to take before and after pictures of my spot treatment but you’ll have to take my word for it. I am thrilled to say I don’t see any residue from the foundation stains. Just be careful not to damage your clothing while scrubbing! If you use this method and it works, please leave a comment below to let others know of its continued effectiveness. I’ve tried it on about three separate occasions with 100% success rate. If you have other methods of removing liquid foundation from clothing, please feel free to share those, too!
