UGLee Pen Product Review & Giveaway

Have you heard about the UGLee Pen? I'm sure by now, most of you had.  I had heard of it, but hadn't had the chance to try one out, until now.

Product description from site:

The UGLee Pen is a revolutionary ergonomic pen that is designed, created and used by a real physician. This Doctor-inspired grip pen is redefining the way people view pens and writing.

The UGLee Pen is good for everyone who writes (even just a grocery list), and is especially helpful to people who experience pain and discomfort when writing, for example those with arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, etc.,. It's also the best writing utensil for children who are learning to write and are developing fine motor skills, as well as helpful for special-needs children who find holding a pen or pencil properly difficult. And for high-school and college students who have to take copious notes, this pen helps keep hands and fingers from cramping.
The ultimate grip pen was created by Dr. James Lee and is very lightweight and comfortable to use.

For me, it did take a bit to get use to, but I have always used pens that had the normal grips on them. But once I got going with them, they were comfortable.  No hand cramping from writing out long lists  or doing paperwork, which was a good change.

My overall opinion was that I really liked them.  The only complaint that I do have is that they would quit writing on me and then I would have to scribble a bit to get them going.  Overall though they are two thumbs up!

UGLee Pens are available to purchase from their website, a cost of 10 are $15 + $2.95 shipping.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank UGLee Pens for allowing my site to do a product review and also a giveaway for one of my readers.

Disclaimer: I received no compensation for this post but I did receive the said product so that I could administer a proper product review.  All words, except quoted text, are my own and were not influenced from an outside source.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops Product Reivew

Sometimes the right product review comes along just as you need it to.

Case in point.  In the past couple of weeks I've been under the weather, to say the least.  Extremely sore throat (just like swallowing razor blades), scratchy, tickling, aching and coughing.  The list could go on and on.  Needless to say, I felt like I had been hit by a truck and backed over a second time.

Just as I was starting to feel really bad in the mail arrives a box from Pine Bros.  I knew this box was coming for a product review, but I didn't expect all that arrived.  Bags and bags and bags of Softish Throat Drops both Natural Honey flavored and Wild Cherry flavored.

I received both flavors in the bags and also one each of the carry along little puck. 

Let me tell you a little bit about Pine Bros (borrowed from the site).

Ulysses S. Grant was President, the population of America hovered at 39 million, and the telephone was still a pipe dream, when in 1870 J. Herman Pine hung out a confectionery shingle on 8th Street above Walnut in Philadelphia and, along with his brother, sold their first batch of what they called 'Pine Brothers Glycerine Tablets.' In an attempt to relieve his own sore throat and those of his family members, Mr. Pine, a former German confectionery maker, determined that by combining the soothing natural qualities of glycerin with the healing properties of gum acacia, he could sooth and mitigate the mild discomfort of a sore throat. Add in some natural flavoring and a sweetener and voila, Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops were born.
That was 140 years ago and per the website, the recipe for these haven't changed.  But, the company had been sold numerous times and owners included Life Savers amongst others.  Now Pine Bros is owned by Victoria Knight-McDowell, who was the creator of Airborne, for her 3 Sisters Home Products Company.  They have done their research to find the original recipe for the product and are coming up new ways to promote including updating the packaging.

The most wonderful news of all that would make Mr. Pine one proud inventor, as of the fall of 2011, Pine Bros Softish Throat Drop are now made entirely in the USA and are available nationally.

As for my review.  I have to say that I enjoyed both flavors.  The flavors weren't overbearing and actually the Natural Honey probably could have been a little more stronger with the honey taste (according to my husband and father who tried the product as well), me I thought it was just right.  The Natural Honey also did the most for my throat.  It helped with the scratchiness and the itchiness that I was going through.  They really did sooth it for me. Though I was going through a lot of them.  It tells you on the packaging not to chew them, but I had a hard time not wanting to, I think that is the soft texture of them.  It makes you want to chew.  But you have to remember, these aren't candy. 

Oh, and they work. At least for me.  My throat is feeling better now.

I would recommend you give Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops a try. They are available nationally at the CVS Pharmacies for $3.49 a bag (32 drops).  You should also check them out on facebook and twitter.  They have giveaways going on throughout the year and I know that you want to get in on them. Go ahead and swing on over and tell them that Lollipops n' Ladybugs sent ya!!

As for me, I now have enough Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops to last me for a little while in case the sore throat/cold/flu hits again.

I want to take this opportunity to thank Pine Bros. for allowing me to do a review of their product.

The Halloween Costume Switch-a-roo

It is that time of year! Time for the little one to pick out the Halloween costume that she wants to wear.  She has been carrying around a costume magazine with her for weeks.  Yes, carrying it around.  Where ever we go.

She has gone back and forth between a zombie, a skeleton, a glow in the dark skeleton, a cowgirl, a space alien and the list goes on and on.  

She has had cute costumes from the beginning.  Her first Halloween she was a loaf of Wonder Bread (she was 6-months old), then she was a lion and last year she was a witch. 

So, while we were out and about she saw a fairy/Tinkerbell costume and she just had to have it.  We told her that this was it, this was her choice and if we bought it, that is what she is going to be. 

She was happy.  We were happy because it was VERY REASONABLE price-wise.  We bought it.  

There is hangs waiting for Halloween night.  All cute, adorable and I know that she is going to be absolutely adorable in it.

So, what happens after we have had the costume for a few days?

She brings me the Halloween costume magazine and asks if she can be a zombie for Halloween.  

Yep! It begins.

Is it wrong for me to think that I can make her into a Tinkerbell zombie?
