Beam n Read for Book Lovers

Hey neighbors!!

My daughters and I all LOVE to read. I personally love to read on trips, but usually can't after it gets dark.  I prefer physical books over e-books, so once the sun set, I could no longer read.  The Beam n Read solves my problem.  The light, actually 6 tiny LED lights, hang from an elastic strap you place around your neck.  You can choose to have 3 or 6 of the lights on at a time, depending on the brightness you need and of course how wide you need the light to spread. 6 LEDS will give a brighter light, but by using only 3 LEDS you will have longer battery life.  It easily lights two pages of a book.





The Beam n Read requires 4 AA batteries that do not come with the light.  Included with the light though are two different blue-light-blocking relaxation filters.
  • BNR Orange Filter to soften and warm the light and block blue light
  • BNR Red Filter to block blue light, reduce ambient light for an extra-sensitive bed companion
    and to help avoid night blindness when switching between lighted and dark conditions
The Beam n Read is also perfect for those who crochet, quilt or do other craft projects requiring both hands.  It will also assist those like myself, who need bright light when working on something small and/or delicate.




I received the Beam n Read LED 6 Hands-Free Task Light ($29.95 + Shipping and Handling).  They also have a Beam n Read LED 3 Hands-Free Travel and Reading Light.  There are two other variations available.  You can purchase the lights on their website, Amazon or Newegg.

Put together a Beam n Read with a couple books from a favorite author, and you have a perfect gift for a reader.  Fill a basket with yarn, crochet needles and a Beam n Read for a holiday gift basket.  You can do the same thing for someone who enjoys needlepoint or another hands on craft.

Final Straw - The Last Straw You Need



Hi Neighbors!!

The holidays are truly closing in on us, and I wanted to share Final Straw with you.  Many people are concerned about the environment and the disposable world we live in.  Straws are one of the subjects that are often brought up.  We use glass straws and a few metal straws, but now I have a travel straw.  It is perfect to take on road trips, hiking, to the park, just about anywhere you go, you can take your Final Straw.  Final Straw would make a perfect stocking stuffer for your friend who is concerned about the environment, a camping friend, a hunter, or a busy mom.  It is a handy item for just about anyone.




Not only is Final Straw a re-usable straw, but it folds up and fits into a small plastic case, that you can attach to a backpack, your purse, or even your keychain.  Inside with your foldable straw, is a collapsible brush for cleaning your Final Straw!!  So you have everything right there.  You won't take a dirty straw home with you, because you can clean it as soon as you are done using Final Straw.

Chameleon Pens, Markers and Pencils for Artists

Hey neighbors!

Check out these pens from Chameleon!! Now you might wonder why they are called Chameleon, it is because you can change colors.  Literally!!  The Chameleon Fineliners pen has ink both in the pen itself and in the cap.  You can change caps and blend colors.  You can do just one color, or you can blend several colors by changing to different caps.  These are perfect for the budding artist, journaling, planners and many other artistic endeavors.




They also have Chameleon Pens, which you can use their Color Tops with to create over 1000 different colors.  Talk about having a huge variety of colors to choose from. These would be perfect stocking stuffers, or you could create an art basket with some Chameleon pens, a sketch pad, and perhaps one of those beautiful coloring books they have out now. Throw in a few other art products and you are good to go!


I was really impressed the way the Chameleon pens gradually change color. I took some time playing around with them on a scrap of packing paper just for fun!



Visit the Chameleon website and look around.  They have videos you can watch on how to use the pens, as well as projects people have completed with their Chameleon Pena, markers and pencils.  Take a moment to follow them on their social media.

Artistic Atmosphere has Holiday Gifts



Hey neighbors!!

I LOVE letter boards!! This felt letter board with easel stand and 4 different color letters is just one of the items you will find available on the Artistic Atmosphere website.




You will probably be seeing this letter board many more times on our site here, as I will use it in photos throughout this next year.  The board comes with the smaller white letters, but they have other letters you can purchase in a larger size.  I have the Blue, Purple and Pink.  See how nice that looks below?  The letter sets each come with a canvas bag to store the letters.  Interestingly enough, they have some emoji and other symbols included.


These would also make a great gift for a photographer who does family shoots or baby shoots.  A blogger can put these to good us in the photos she takes of food or products.  If you know someone like my daughter, she likes to have one in her room and randomly share a Scripture or thought for the week.

I personally love the look of the wood burned felt letter boards.  They also have the ability to do custom boards.  See the pic below borrowed from their website.

Freshe Tech Essential Oil Diffuser



Hey neighbors!!

This  next product makes a great holiday gift for women, but even some men diffuse essential oils.  I have a diffuser I use in my bedroom, and we have two others around the home.  All my daughters pull a diffuser out when they feel a cold or allergies coming on.  The June & May Diffuser  ($59.95) from Freshe Tech is a simple Morrocan design.  It is simple to use, and is very quiet when on.  They also have a four pack of essential oils ($24.95) available that will get you started on diffusing essential oils.  Each oil has different properties.  Some of the scents are calming, some help you relax and sleep, others will sharpen and clear you're mind.



The four set of oils includes, Orange, Lavender, Eucalyptus and Peppermint.  I use lavender at night to help me relax and sleep.  I use Eucalyptus when my allergies are acting up, or when I feel a cold coming on.  To me Orange is a pleasant scent that I diffuse during the day to help make the home smell light and clean.  Peppermint is perfect for the holidays!! I also use it as a deterrent for small pests.

The June & May Diffuser comes with an integrated safety shut off.  So you have no worries using your diffuser day or night.  Another soothing factor built in to this diffuser is the LED color changing lights.  Set the mood for a calm relaxing evening with the calming lights while filling your home with a light, pleasing scent.

Check out the Freshe Tech website for more information on the June & May Diffuser.

Theraspecs Cut Down on Screen Glare



Hey neighbors!!

Check out the Theraspecs we received!! One of my daughters is seriously bothered by glare from lights, her computer screen, even sun coming in the window.  When she watches something at night, she wants all the lights off in the room, because the glare bothers her.  Since she transcribes, she needs to be on her computer for long periods of time, that is why we checked out Theraspecs!


Theraspecs are designed for people with light sensitivity, migraines and those recovering from a concussion.  They are tinted to filter out harmful light that triggers migraines, headaches and eyestrain.  "In fact, a clinical study of the TheraSpecs tint showed that participants experienced 74 percent fewer attacks per month." 


They say that wearing regular sunglasses inside can actually make light sensitivity worse over time.  Theraspecs on the other hand block the harmful light and filter the pulsing from fluorescent lights. Theraspecs does have glasses designed for outdoor wear also.  Having glasses for light sensitivity just makes sense for us.




Theraspecs will make a great stocking stuffer or gift for that special someone who suffers from light sensitivity or migraines.  The company offers a 60 day risk-free trial.  Be sure to visit their website and follow them on their social media.
