Luggage Travel Organizer Packing Cubes Laundry Bag

I travel extensively and one of the big issues is staying organized when you’re on the road, whether travelling for business or vacation. I found this Luggage Travel Organizer Packing Cubes on Amazon and it was at a good pricepoint (under $20) so I thought I would give it a try.

First of all, I love the idea of organization on a trip – you try and pack things but it never quite stays the way you want it.  And if you have multiple stops along the way, forget it! It’s a nightmare.  Then where does your dirty clothes go?  This has a laundry bag – in fact two laundry bags!  I was very impressed with this product.  The packing cubes look good, fold up well when not in use, and have mesh so that you can see what’s inside them!  There’s a padded digital pouch bag if you wanted to put something that’s fragile and needs a little extra protection.

The shoe bag fit 2 pairs of Mens Size 12 shoes!!! Yeah. That’s perfect.  You can pack tshirts, socks, underwear, bathing suits – anything you want in the other packing cubes.  Comes with 6 pieces total and for the money – it’s a pretty good deal.  The laundry bag is a little small for a long trip but I see it being extremely helpful for bathing suits and such.

Overall, this is a must have for travelers!!

Bambini & ME Diaper Bag


Looking for the PERFECT baby shower gift for the expecting couple? Have no idea the sex of the baby but know you want to give them something really nice!!! Or maybe you’re the ones who are expecting and you’re looking for the perfect Diaper Bag. LOOK NO FURTHER than the Bambini & ME diaper bag!! They allowed me to receive one of these free of charge in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. I have no affiliation whatsoever with them and my words are all my own.

The immediate reaction when I received this product and started to look at it is WOW, POCKETS!!!  There’s a TON of them.  Big large pockets hold plenty of baby “stuff” – all the important things that a parent would need to take care of their newborn or infant child.  Inside, the bag opens up to store LOTS of diapers and … well, MORE POCKETS!!! The lining is made of tough durable material and all the stitching looks very heavy – this is a very well made bag.  Mesh pockets too so you can see what’s in there and even holds water bottles to keep mom & dad hydrated too!!!   Comes with a travel diaper changing pad too so you can change your baby on the road!!  Hopefully not while driving!! (just kidding!)

Seriously, this bag is very well made and worth  $50 for sure.  Have seen bags like this go for quite a bit more — so even though they sent this to me for free, my review is based on the price they have this listed for, which is a great value.  I would highly recommend this to any parents with newborns or as a fantastic baby shower gift!!!  Highly recommend!

Waterproof Velcro Camera Protective Wrap

A very interesting way to protect your camera.. a camera wrap that’s basically a waterproof blanket that velcros around your dSLR, mirrorless, or other prized camera.  I just bought a new Fuji Mirrorless and was selected to receive one of these for free or highly discounted in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.  It came quickly but I was surprised when I got it because I wasn’t quite sure how it worked.  I had to actually pull up the original amazon listing just to see how to secure my camera in it!!!  I felt a little foolish.

The velcro system worked pretty well and it even had corner pouches to put memory cards, USB sticks, or any other small things that you’d like to bring around with you (filters, etc.)  It snugged in your camera and I felt like this was a pretty good alternative to a bag.  I’m not 100% sold on it being able to keep rain out if I have to shoot in the elements…. but it definitely would work better than nothing… and when you take your camera out of the case, it’s not protected at all.  So I definitely think it would work great for that purpose.   I’m going to have to get more seat time with the product and I’ll be posting an update once I’ve had a chance to actually use this on the road… but I do think it’s a pretty interesting creative product that has great potential.  We’ll see what happens when I’m able to give this thing a road test!

Benneton Dough Proofing Basket! (BAD DOGGIE!!!)


I love kitchen gadgets, really I do.  I had an opportunity to buy one of these Banneton Proofing Baskets at a significant discount in exchange for an unbiased and honest review.  I went for it because I wanted to see how it worked.

First, some people have said on the Amazon Review that it’s smaller than they had imagined it to be.  It’s actually exactly how I imagined it to be.  Perfect size.  How much dough are you making?????????? Seriously.  it’s the perfect size for a large loaf, which is what most people would be making.  4 Cups of Flour fit EASILY in this proofing basket.

It’s made of natural canes so at first I thought it was damaged in shipment.  I emailed the seller and they told me that this is natural – so if you get it and see where the canes were cut and “spliced” don’t freak out like I did.  It’s normal.

I mixed my ingredients and put the shaggy dough mixture into the proofing basket and let it rise, it was perfect!!! I first coated the canes with flour as it says you should do – or use the liner… I didn’t really want to “dirty” the liner though!!  At least not yet.. maybe once I’ve made some batches of dough…..  I did use the included linen bag (which you store your bread in after it’s done cooking) to drape over the top of the basket while the yeast did it’s thing.

One thing… just before it was ready to pop in the oven, my dog decided she wanted to eat it.  She knocked it off the countertop and ate the whole thing!!!!!  Bad Doggie.

I guess I’ll just have to make another batch of dough!

Just A Guy Who Reviews Stuff gives this Banneton Dough Proofing Basket 5 STARS for being a cool way to store your rising dough and turns it into a very cool little loaf!


Large Travel First Aid Kit Medical Bag


Small heavyweight travel first aid kit in a canvas bag – it’s pretty compact for what you get and very durable — it holds a TON of first aid products. Velcro and pouches holds things in place. I won’t go through all the items that it contains (as it’s pretty clear in the description) but it’s pretty comprehensive.

This is a great kit to keep in the car or in areas of the house where you might need some first aid items. Accidents happen, might as well store a couple of these close to where you might need them. I store one in the first floor bathroom, right near the kitchen. I keep one upstairs in the main bathroom, along with “backup” items (bandages, cotton balls, alcohol pads, etc.) so as I use them from this kit — I replenish.

It’s small enough so that it’s easy to carry around and doesn’t take up a lot of the room in your SUV or in your trunk – so it’s also easy to store!  Very practical – they’ve thought of some items that I wouldn’t have put in a kit I was making it myself.  The pouches are transparent making it easy to grab the item you need!   It even has a warming blanket in case you get stuck (or for shock victims!)  This first aid kit goes above and beyond, trust me!

I find that by having kits like this, you tend to find them extremely handy when you need something in a pinch… “Where’s tweezers???” “I don’t have a safety pin – can you look for one, honey?” This kit has what you need. Also included in the kit are items that you typically wouldn’t have around – which makes it awesome to store in the vehicle – glow stick, whistle, large wound bandages, etc. I receive this kit for free or highly discounted in exchange for my unbiased and honest opinion. However at $24.95 I think this is a great value as compared to the items that it comes with!! They just happened to provide it discounted or free for review purposes.

P.S. you also can enter to win a $50 amazon gift card just for reviewing this kit. Why not buy it, review it, and enter to win?!?
