Smart Weigh Scale with Tempered Glass Platform Review

I recently received Smart Weigh SBS500 Body Fat Digital Precision Scale with Tempered Glass Platform to review.  We were recently looking for a new scale to replace our current one with chipped glass.


The scale was really easy to program with my information.  By inputting your height and age the scale measures body fat, water, bone, and muscle mass.  What a great way to monitor the weight loss progress! Especially with my upcoming 20 year high school reunion.  I really need to achieve my goals and stay on track.  This scale will definitely be an essential tool for me.

I’m very happy with the aesthetics of the scale as well.  It’s very sleek and does not become an eye sore in our master bathroom.  I’ve had several friends request the link already after they saw the box when I received it.

This scale is available with Prime shipping for only $29.95 on Amazon.  Much cheaper than the previous one I purchased and I love the look so much more.

Softy Sanitizing Wipes for Hands and Surfaces Review

I recently received Softy Sanitizing wipes to review.  This is an item we use often in our home for all kinds of things.  I was excited to try these wipes and see how they compare to the other brands we have tried.

The scent from the wipes is very nice and not overpowering.  I loved that the wipes were very resistant and on the larger side.  Nothing I hate more than a tiny little wipe.  We have used the wipes for our kitchen countertops, pet messes, cleaning after bike mechanics, and mud scuff marks.  Every single time they have done an outstanding job.  Mike has asked me to make sure and reorder when these run out.  Another added benefit is that the lack of alcohol ensures your hands are nice and soft, hence the name of the brand. Definitely a hit in this house!


These wipes are available with Prime shipping for only $14.98 on Amazon.

Ballroom Mastery 7-DVD set Review

I recently received the Ballroom Dance Mastery System by DanceCrazy to review. I really enjoy ballroom dancing, especially the latin varieties.  I took a course in college and have been trying to get my husband into going to classes together.  This is definitely a great option for the shy men in our lives.


The instructors on the DVDs are incredible detailed in their instructions.  They go over hand placement and the steps for each partner with easy to follow directions.  I think that although the videos are not always fun this is necessary as a beginner.  I hope to be able to start setting aside time to practice with my husband in the New Year.  I think I see this as a great couple activity for sure.
