Glittercrunch Monthly Subscription Box Review


OMG what a great gift idea for those “hard to shop for people”!!! The “Glitter Crunch Box” ” glittercrunchbox ” is a new monthly subscription box dedicated to those who love and appreciate European hand painted Glass ornaments. Each month, subscribers receive a box with 1-2 European hand painted glass ornaments, plus 4-6 additional items all related to a unique, monthly theme. This month’s goodies: coconut glass ornament, popsicle ornament, oversized lip balm, salt water taffy, gourmet virginia peanuts, and a set of 3 decorative sea shells!!!

Everything in this subscription box was pretty unique and had some type of hand either painting or hand picking.  The products are one of a kind and very european in terms of the glass ornaments they provide.   You get way more than the $59/mo. monthly box subscription price, and there’s multi-month discounts available too.  There’s stand alone boxes (single purchase) if you’d like that option as well and not a monthly subscription.

So unique, so clever and what a great gift idea!!!

Braided Lightning USB Cable Leather Bracelet Charging Sync Cord

THIS is one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen!!!

It’s a bracelet… AND an iPhone CHARGE/SYNC CABLE ALL IN ONE!!! It’s ridiculously cool. Literally, just take the ends apart and you have a fully functional charging and sync cable! Snap it back and you’re wearing a black stylish bracelet. It comes in versions for Micro USB (Android) and even the new USB-C for the newest Samsung devices. You’ll NEVER be without a cable again, I promise you!!!!

It looks like a stylish bracelet, in fact people complimented me on my new bracelet! It’s black, braided, and looks like a cool modern wrist band but much nicer. I was like “THANKS… but it’s also an iPhone Charging Cable” to which people’s minds were blown. Yes, it’s an iphone charge cable! The very next question was “does it work with my Samsung Galaxy”? “are there versions for USB-C or MicroUSB”? Yup! There sure is. Form and function together in a bracelet. It’s a fashion statement for sure. And nothing is worse than not being able to charge your phone. Luckily, I don’t have that problem anymore!

Watercolor Paint Set for Kids and Adults


Watercolor painting is extremely old, dating perhaps to the cave paintings of paleolithic Europe, and has been used for manuscript illustration since at least Egyptian times but especially in the European Middle Ages. However, its continuous history as an art medium begins with the Renaissance. The German Northern Renaissance artist Albrecht Dürer (1471–1528), who painted several fine botanical, wildlife, and landscape watercolors, is generally considered among the earliest exponents of watercolor. An important school of watercolor painting in Germany was led by Hans Bol (1534–1593) as part of the Dürer Renaissance.

That’s what wikipedia says about watercolor.  To me though, it’s almost like a stained glass – translucent and beautiful.  I have a hard time describing it to someone, but the look is absolutely priceless.  And painting is fun to do.  Kids LOVE it as you can see.

This paint kit gives you 12 rich color paints that are beautiful on your glass.  It’s quick dry and scratch proof.  Non-toxic so it’s safe for kids to play with and it’s functional… you’re actually making something FUN to drink out of!!!  It’s not quite STAINED glass….. but I call it Stain Glass! 🙂

Wearfit Health Tracker Blood Pressure Smart Watch Fitness

A lot of people are obsessed with fitness and health. Tracking your blood pressure, oxygen level (SPO2), steps (pedometer), and pulse rate just became even easier with this bracelet style (fitbit style) smart watch fitness tracker! Homestec created a very simple, easy to use, all in one wearfit health tracker smart watch that has some pretty serious features for such a small device. I will admit that the manual that it comes with is pretty lacking in any real information. Luckily, this device is pretty straight forward.

I found an updated User’s Manual and posted it here.

The watch is very comfortable and easy to wear — light weight and stylish.  The only complaint I have is that the screen isn’t bright in full sunlight which makes it a little difficult to read when you’re outside in the bright sun.  It wasn’t a big deal for me though.  First it measures blood pressure and pulse very accurately. It was within a couple points of another measurement device so it appears to be pretty accurate.  SpO2 measured me at 97-99% which seems like it’s also accurate.  I wore this fitness tracker (like a fitbit) as well as my Apple Watch for the day and the steps were very simliar, proving its accuracy. It has a sleep monitor which showed me how little sleep I actually am getting! The tracker displays (via the app for iPhone or Android) the amount of overall sleep, number of times I woke up, and how long I was in deep sleep.  Again, I was surprised that I was not getting very much quality sleep at all.  Not surprising though…  Lastly the watch has a stopwatch (great to be used as a timer) and it even has a “messages” SMS screen.  I paired my smart watch with my iPhone but it didn’t display any messages.  I guess I forgot to mention that it’s a touch screen display!  Simple one-button on the face controls everything.

The iPhone app was very simple to download, the QR code in the manual brought me right to the Apple App Store where I could download the Wearfit app.  The wearfit app shows you: Steps, Sleep, Heart Rate, Blood Pressure, Blood Oxygen Level, and Fatigue.  I’m not sure what the number actually means, but it showed mild fatigue at midnight – again, the data makes sense.  The app communicates with the wearfit tracker via bluetooth and downloads the data into the app.  You can see by the day, week, or month the data so you could see trends and have long-term visibility of your health.

Here’s the Wearfit App links for Android and iPhone:

Google Play Store (Android) and Apple App Store (iPhone)

In summary: The Homestec blood pressure Wearfit watch is a fantastic little device with a couple little negatives, but doesn’t make it less than an amazing helpful tool for keeping your health in check.  And for the price it’s…. it can’t be beat!!!  I love knowing more about my overall health condition and it was a great pricepoint too!
