Sunglasses are an essential part of my kit.  My eyes are very sensitive to light and even in overcast conditions I wear sunglasses, or I end up squinting which leads to headaches.  adidas has become a player in the performance eyewear market and I will be reviewing their Evil Eye Evo Pro glasses over the next few months.  Read on for my initial thoughts.

Bio Shield provided the insect spray for review purposes.

Bio Shield spray was developed by a group of pharmacists to deal with insects. They discovered that insects develop a neurotransmitter called octopamine. The formula used in this product blocks the production of octopamine which in turn controls the nervous system and breathing of insects. This provides a quick way to disable the insects. For those of us who appreciate natural products, the active ingredients are all natural. This means it is safe for pets and children. Pepper is a natural ingredient that you would not want to make contact with your eyes. This product has similar warnings. To read more please click here.

Urban Armor Gear iPhone 6s Case

I am a klutz, I admit it.  I break things easily.  I recently upgraded to an iPhone 6s from an iPhone 4s and I needed a new case for my phone to try and protect it from my klutzy ways.  Urban Armor Gear or UAG makes a line of cases to protect all types of phones and tablets and I decided to give them a try.  I have been using their case for the last month while backpacking, running and everyday use and I am pleased and more importantly my iPhone still looks new. Read on for my full thoughts.

GCI Pico Arm Chair a last look

The weather has improved from cold and rainy to hot humid and sometimes rainy. In my last look, I will focus on comfort, adaptability to various surfaces, how far I was willing to carry the GCI Pico Arm Chair. I have stayed in the chair from one hour to up to four hours.

Why would I use a deck chair in the house? It is a comfortable chair takes a small amount of space. On a warm rainy day, I wanted to do a lot of reading and quickly found that my recliner was too warm to sit in due to the high humidity. To read more please click here.
