Smarssen Portable Bluetooth Heart Rate Monitor, iOS and Android Compatible


Accurate and Comfortable

I experience sinus tachycardia when I move around so I like to keep an eye on my heart rate. I have been considering the different ways to do it. In the past, I have had to wear a portable holtor monitor prescribed my doctor for various lengths of time but to purchase one of those on my own would be too expensive. I was fortunate to come across this Bluetooth heart rate monitor because it will work with various apps and I have found several that work for what I want. I need something that I can wear that will monitor my heart 24/7 so that I will not only have verification of any immediate problems but also have access to data that both my doctor and I can look at to recognize any patterns or trends with my heart rate.

The phone I paired this with is a Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Bluetooth 4.0, Android 5.0.

#Smarssen Heart Rate Monitor

Advantages:
* Works with multiple apps, you can find the one that works best for your needs
* iOS and Android compatible
* Accurate – I measured this against 2 different oximeters and BP monitor
* Band is comfortable to wear, adjustable for many different sizes
* You are able to wash the band, huge plus when you wear something constantly
* Device attaches/detaches easily, no tangle of wires
* Easy to manage by myself
* I can see right away when my HR is staying high for too long a period of time and then do what i can to get it down myself with medication or rest vs going to the ER.
* With the advantage of working with so many apps, everyone is bound to find one that tracks the kinds of things they are interested in be it just plain HR shown on the display of your phone to elaborate charts and graphs displaying your HR data along with your exercise statistics.

Disadvantages:
* The directions could have been a little more explicit when it comes to how the device pairs with apps (it doesn’t pair through Bluetooth scanning, but through scanning within each app) and the need for the band to be very moist in order to work. I really don’t like that the band has to be wet to work. It is not only uncomfortable, once it dries I loose my connectivity and then have to go through the pairing process again.

#Smarssen Heart Rate MonitorIdeally, it would have been nice if this monitor came with its own app. Many of the ones that were recommended didn’t work because of different updates to them or changes in compatibility. I am not done searching for the perfect app yet, but for my use as a 24/7 monitor I have been using primarily BLE Heart Rate Monitor, HRMonitor, and MotiFIT which I found all on Google Play. I will update this review as I find more apps that are useful for monitoring your HR 24/7. I am not really interested in all of the apps that were recommended in the first place since they are more for monitoring your heart rate during exercise. My exercise is walking as far as the bathroom and brushing my teeth.

In fact, the change you see here of an average HR of 75 to a high of 121 was when I simply walked into the bathroom and back.  You can see that something as simple as walking raises my HR, so it is important that I keep a close eye on it so that it doesn’t get dangerously high.

I am excited to show my doctor this heart rate monitor on my next visit along with some data, once I decide which app I like the best. This is such a reasonably priced product (under $40.00 at the time of this review) that anyone who has an interest in or really needs to be monitoring their heart rate will be able to justify the cost easily. It is probably much less expensive than your copay if you have to wear an holtor monitor or event monitor for any length of time.

Please note, many of the pictures are of the apps I have been using. I wanted you to be able to get a feel for the kind of data you will see and so you will know that it was actually tested and used. What you will receive when you get this is the monitor, elastic band, battery, and battery compartment tool. Which app you choose is up to you.

In the spirit of full disclosure, I was selected to receive this Smarssen Portable Bluetooth Heart Rate Monitor, iOS and Android Compatible at a discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. All ratings are earned and never promised; all opinions and thoughts expressed are my own, and I am in no way associated with the manufacturer or seller. I received no compensation other than the product sample.

Health :: Shades of Pain

Health :: Shades of Pain

Shades of pain…. That phrase is running through my mind as I think about the pain I am in right now, today. I was trying to describe it to my friend so that she understands. I always think that my pain can’t get any worse, but it does. How can I begin to explain to her what I am feeling? Maybe other people with chronic pain will understand.

shades of pain poem about chronic pain


I changed doctors a few months ago and my new ones are really not grasping my medical history. I don’t think they have completely read through my records and they dismiss so many things I tell them. Last week at the pain doctor, she told me that it is against the law for her to prescribe opioids for me because I do not have cancer and am not at the end of my life. She explained that I am taking almost 5 times the legal limit. She cut my pain medication by 30% and next week I am supposed to go back and she will cut it down to the legal limit for a cancer patient. She hasn’t said what the next step after that will be. Is she going to take everything away?

In spite of the fact that I have been dealing with chronic pain for 8 years, I have a heart condition, 2 failed back fusions, I am in so much pain already that I can rarely get out of bed, plus I have several diagnoses that are up in the air at this point (they disagree with the Mayo Clinic) she is taking away my pain medication. She told me that the federal government has passed this law and she has to follow it.

The problem is, besides the fact that I am in tremendous pain, I can’t find any information on the laws that have been passed. I know there has been discussion and that the CDC has made recommendations. A recommendation is not a law, though. I have even asked other chronic pain patients on Twitter if they have heard of these new laws. No one has.

My husband is trying to get me in to see his pain doctor, I don’t think I can take much more of this. I have to find a new doctor asap. The pain is horrible, it wasn’t even controlled in the first place. Now on top of it, I am dealing with withdrawal symptoms. I am trying to read and to keep busy, I try not to let myself focus on the pain. This post has taken me hours to write, I just can’t get it together. Tomorrow has to be better! 


Amazon TOS Changes :: Increase in Minimum Purchases to Write a Review, Again

Amazon TOS Changes :: Increase in Minimum Purchases to Write a Review, Again

I have just read that Amazon has changed their Customer Review Creation Guidelines once again. Last month we saw them make an addition to their TOS (Terms of Service) requiring anyone that wanted to leave a review for a product must first have spent a total of  $5.00 on Amazon using a valid credit or debit card. Prime subscriptions and promotional discounts wouldn’t go towards that minimum.

Today, that $5.00 change has been increased to a minimum of $50.00 total worth of purchases on a valid credit or debit card in order to be able to write a product review.

Amazon TOS changes

This link will take you to the complete Customer Creation Guidelines.

Up to that point, anyone who wanted to could write a product review. There have been 3 sets of lawsuits filed in the past year against companies and individuals that were paying for reviews or that used tactics on their product promotion websites that were against Amazon TOS.

Do you think the increase to $50.00 is warranted? It is steep but it will certainly curb the huge number of fake profiles being created in order to write reviews in exchange for money. Many Reviewers may feel this is targeted at the Reviewer Community but I see it as targeting unscrupulous Sellers who will try anything to manipulate their ranking.

As a reminder, any special Seller requests are against Amazon TOS.  Even if you refuse to do the request but receive a product from that Seller, your account is still in jeopardy.  When a Seller loses their account, Amazon is more than likely to also wipe all known Reviewers who have worked with them. Keyword Searches, Wishlisting, and Other Seller Requests are manipulation, plain and simple. This includes asking you to write and/or answer questions on a product listing. Amazon is not going to stop and ask who has participated in these things for certain Sellers, they are just going to wipe all of the Reviewers who are associated with them through writing reviews. Please, if a Seller asks you to do anything special, don’t do it. Let them know that what they are asking is against Amazon TOS, they may not know. If it is obvious they do know, report them.

Question :: Reblogging

Question :: Reblogging

blogging questionsI love reading other people’s blogs and many of their posts often inspire me, giving me things to really think about and learn from. Other bloggers share great craft ideas i would love to try or think my readers would find fun. I also love finding great recipes, though I could and would never cook them myself. Maybe someday! My bookmarks are always full of incredible ideas!

I think that is why I love Pinterest so much. You see an idea and can grab it to Pin, or now that they have changed it, you can Save it. By the way, are they going to change the name to Saverest now they have renamed the button, lol!

what is rebloggingCircling back to my question, what do you do when you see a great idea on a blog? What exactly is reblogging? What happens when you push that button? I imagine my computer will explode or Bugs Bunny will pop out of my screen saying No-No-No!  Is reblogging where  you just write a few sentences and then that person’s whole post is now on your blog? Or is reblogging taking inspiration from what someone else has written and expounding on it, sharing with your reader’s how it has affected you, how it has inspired you?

questions and more questionsWhat is the etiquette? Every time I have shared something I have contacted the owner and asked. Is it okay to just hit the reblog button without asking? If someone has inspired you is it okay to just tell them after the fact or is your ping-pack enough notification to them?  I have also seen where people leave a message in the comments afterwards.

What do you do?

I hope there is some knowledgeable blogger out there who can answer my question for me, and I hope that it answers someone else’s question too. I have usually found that if someone has a question about something, they are not the only ones!

Product Review :: #AmazaPens 20 Pack Super Glitter

Product Review :: #AmazaPens 20 Pack Super Glitter


AmazaPens Gel Pens, 20 Pack Super Glitter | 150% More Ink than Other Sets | Best for Adding Sparkle to Your Adult Coloring Books and Art Projects


5 Star Glitter!

 

This set of glitter gel pens really is spectacular! They are incredibly smooth, much smoother than you would ever expect from a glitter gel pen. I go through a lot of coloring supplies, especially gel pens. After all, what girly girl who grew up in the 80’s could resist gel pens, especially ones with glitter? Along with a video review, I will be attaching a color chart, some blending examples, and a mandala I colored with these along with actual images of the gel pens themselves.

Advantages:

#amazapens
* Smooth, even ink that fills the fiber of the paper with deep color
* Medium point tip keeps the glitter and ink flowing without clogging
* 20 unique colors
* Nice comfort pen grip to help ease any strain from coloring too long
* No bleeding through to the back, a huge plus for these pens
* Ink dries quickly so no smearing under normal conditions BUT not so quickly that you can’t blend if you want to.
* Colors identified by the cap and by the end of pen
#amazapens gel pens* Write on a variety of different paper types including glossy paper
* Non-toxic and acid-free so can be used even for scrapbooking and anything else heirloom-related

Disadvantages:

* Like with most pens you use to color with, these will leave some lines on the page with some impressions so if you have something on the back of the page you want to preserve, you might want to make a copy of what you want to color instead of coloring in the book.

#amazapens color chartRecommendation:

* If you like glitter and you like gel pens, these are the perfect glitter gel pens for you. I love that they have 20 distinct colors that aren’t too close to each other in shade. The ink flows so nicely filling in the paper fiber and leaving great color behind. These pens have a multitude of uses for any kind of craft you are interested in.and tons of everyday uses too.

One thing I did want to mention is the amount of ink in these pens. It doesn’t exactly say how much ink is in each pen, which would have been nice since they are making the claim that they will last 2.5 times longer. I have noticed though that so far the ink levels are staying nice even though I have been using them a lot. A few of them I have even been using on a daily basis as writing pens and I haven’t had any noticeable change in the level of ink yet.

Changing the size of the tube that holds the ink was a great idea. As soon as one of them runs out I will take it apart and do some measuring for future reference. This is something that some companies may really manipulate and as consumers, we would never think to look before this.

In the spirit of full disclosure, I ordered these AmazaPens Gel Pens, 20 Pack Super Glitter | 150% More Ink than Other Sets | Best for Adding Sparkle to Your Adult Coloring Books and Art Projects. on Amazon and received them for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Product Review :: Relaxing Sleep Tea #RelaxingSleepTea

Product Review :: Relaxing Sleep Tea #RelaxingSleepTea

Relaxing Sleep Tea – 2 Sizes – Herbal Bedtime Calming Aid – Helps Insomnia and Anxiety – Peaceful Mind and Body – Organic Superior Quality by Cuppa Magic


 

Refreshing sleep with the benefits of aromatherapy, I love the way this smells!

 

I love anything natural that can improve my lifestyle. I deal with numerous health issues so anything that can help me that doesn’t have to be prescribed I am all for! Due to back problems and chronic pain, I have a difficult time sleeping. I can fall asleep in a heartbeat but can’t stay asleep due to the pain. This cuppa magic tea is just the thing I have needed.

Advantages:

#relaxingsleeptea #cuppamagic*  Natural ingredients
*  Smells heavenly
*  Tastes great
*  Helps me sleep longer
*  Beneficial for so many things besides sleep
*  Individually packaged, no measuring needed
*  Package is resealable
* I have been studying natural ingredients for the last year and I have learned that the things they claim their ingredients help, actually do!

Disadvantages:

* None, I love it and it works.

I especially love the way this tea tastes and smells. I love tea anyway, I have always loved the tea ceremonies of Japan and the countless mystery novels I have read set in the Golden Age of England have instilled it in me. There is a science to the perfect cuppa. Having this pre-measured in individual packages takes the science out of it. All that you have to do is add water at your preferred temperature and let it steep, I let mine steep for just under 10 minutes so that I can enjoy the aromatherapy of it. If the tea is too strong for you, you can add some milk that has been slightly warmed, try some honey or sugar, or even just not let it steep for as long.

There is a strong scent of the orient in this tea, that probably comes from the Ginger and Saffron combined with Spearmint. It reminds me of the scent of Singapore that I used to love so much when I traveled more. It is a light floral scent that once you smell it, you will instantly recognize it. I don’t think that many people realize just how powerful a scent can be, I have no doubt that the aromatherapy effects of this tea no doubt help to put you in the right mood for a relaxing nights sleep.

It is important to have a routine built around sleep and preparing for bed. This is the perfect thing to add to your routine. You should drink this at least an hour before you go to bed to give it a chance to get into your system. I don’t think that I will ever sleep all night again because of my pain, but the sleep that I do experience after drinking this is a deeper sleep that leaves me more refreshed.

Ingredient List With Benefits: (provided by Cuppa Magic)

Chamomile: stress & sleep disorders – gastrointestinal disorders including ulcers – menstrual pain – reducing rashes, pimples & scars

Ginger Root: stomach upsets, indigestion & nausea – fight infections – lower cholesterol – improve brain function

Saffron: promote learning & memory – cell formation & repair – maintain blood pressure – disease prevention

Product Review :: Set of Solar Lights #GardenLight

Product Review :: Set of Solar Lights #GardenLight


Ohuhu Solar Garden Light, Solar Powered LED Lantern Light for Gardening, Outdoor, Patio, Pathway, Wall, Ground, Hanging Mount, 2 Pack


 

Attractive design with plenty of advantages!

 

Anyone who knows me knows that I love options and this solar light set is full of options! It comes with 2 solar lights that you can mount on a wall, use the included ground stakes, hang them on the shepherd’s hooks that are included, or any combination of those options. We are using these as accent lights in our backyard by our koi pond. I especially like the look of the shepherd’s hook option. It isn’t something you see everywhere. I think the option of one shepherd’s hook and the second accent nearby on a ground stake is another great look.

Advantages:

#GardenLight* Attractive design, I especially like the shepherd’s hook
* Options for installation with everything included
* Lantern part is nice size, approximately 8.5 in from base to loop
* Light bulb is approximately 3 in, light strength is average for a solar light
* On/Off switch (don’t forget to turn it on to get it to work), battery included
* If placed in full sun while charging, the charge will last around 8 hours
* Sheperd’s hook is made of metal
* Less expensive, easier to install, and no monthly charge when compared to wired lighting
* Environmentally friendly

Disadvantages:

* More care could have been taken in packaging this to ensure it arrives safely and all of the parts are easy to find in the box. I thought I was missing 2 tiny parts until I found them underneath the bottom layer of styrofoam in a gap in the box. All loose parts should be packaged together somehow like the screws were. Packaging isn’t something I usually include in a review so will not be using that as part of my rating.

These lights aren’t super bright like a security light would need to be; they are just right as accents or somewhere when you need just a little extra light to see when it is dark. It is nice that they aren’t so super bright that they ruin a lovely view at night. It is so peaceful to sit and enjoy the night sky in the backyard, I wouldn’t want something so bright that it was distracting. Make sure that these are placed in full sun to charge if you want them to last a full 8 hours. If they don’t receive a great deal of light for at least 4 hours a day, they aren’t going to last as long or be as bright as they could be.

In the spirit of full disclosure, I was selected to receive this Ohuhu Solar Garden Light, Solar Powered LED Lantern Light for Gardening, Outdoor, Patio, Pathway, Wall, Ground, Hanging Mount, 2 Pack direct from the Seller, Ohuhu, for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. All ratings are earned and never promised; all opinions and thoughts expressed are my own, and I am in no way associated with the manufacturer or seller. I received no compensation other than the product sample.

A Little Bit of Everything

A Little Bit of Everything


WelcomeI want to welcome the new subscribers to this blog, there has been a tremendous increase in the number of people signing up for updates just this month alone! I am so excited to have you all here. A lot of the new subscribers seem to be from Europe, how wonderful!

I know there are a few companies opening sites for Reviewers in Europe now. But I don’t want to assume anyone is here for any specific reason. I would love it if anyone at all, new to the blog or not, would like to share where you are from and what you are interested in. Are you here to learn about Reviewing, or have an interest in inspiration, coloring, or health related topics? Anything else, good old fashioned Serendipity?

Keep calm and color onFor those of you who like to color, I just posted 15 new Kindle books for you to download and print for FREE over on my FB blog page. Here is the link, Facebook :: A Treasure Chest of Serendipity to the specific post where the books are posted in the Comments. Make sure to double check the price before you order in case the price has changed.

I also noticed that many of the eBooks that I shared last on the Coloring for Adults page are still FREE, so be sure to check those out while you are at it.

I used to dreamOn to the topic of health, I have actually missed all my appointments this week. On Tuesday there was a mix up and the person I thought I had asked to take me couldn’t manage it. So I rescheduled for today but couldn’t even get out of bed to make it in. I am just managing to get up one or two times during the day to make it into the bathroom.  I am in such a great deal of pain and the heart medication I have started seems to have drained every bit of energy. Here’s a graphic I made last month for Twitter, it is even more appropriate now! It is a little tongue-in-cheek, my life isn’t a nightmare but it isn’t what I thought it would be.

When you change the way you look at thingsBut let’s end on an inspirational note. It is better to think of the things in our lives that are good instead of focusing on the things that aren’t. One of the ladies that runs the Grandfamilies organization that I am a member of has arranged something very special for our family this weekend and my heart is full of such gratitude and thankfulness to her. I will share more about it next week, I am just too tired right now… But the world is full of wonderful people and I am blessed.

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend!

Product Review :: Copper Compression Gloves

Best Compression Gloves Copper Comfort- Helps Arthritis Speeds Recovery in Hands & Fingers – Highest Copper Percent Guaranteed Pair of Medium Gloves


Cool and Comfortable #compressioncomfort

I ordered these copper compression gloves to help with carpal tunnel and pain in my hands. I have heard for years about the benefits of copper and so copper gloves seem to be a logical step. I am trying to use more natural things in my life and for my health and have felt better for it. I ordered a size medium, if you are between sizes or in doubt, I would go larger. The material is very soft and the gloves slip on very easily. They are well sewn so I don’t have any reason to doubt their durability.

#compressioncomfort

When you slip them on they are comfortable to wear and not hot at all, which is something I worried about. It is easy to wear them for an extended period of time. My hands don’t swell normally but I do have a lot of pain in them. I wish I would have ordered a size Large instead because I might have been able to wear these more and got more benefit from them when it comes to pain relief.

I did like the fact that they gave good support to my wrists. These are much easier to wear than a whole wrist brace which my doctor wants me to wear for carpel tunnel. They give me enough support as a reminder to hold my wrists correctly as I type and to keep them straight when holding my tablet for extended periods of time.

In the spirit of full disclosure, I ordered these Best Compression Gloves Copper Comfort- Helps Arthritis Speeds Recovery in Hands & Fingers – Highest Copper Percent GUARANTEED *Pair of Medium Gloves* on Amazon and received them for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Finding Serendipity

Finding Serendipity

Well, some of my regular readers may have noticed I have been offline for the last few weeks.  I was on another doctor ordered break from everything….  My heart beats at an exceedingly fast rate at times and the doctors have been trying different things to get it to regulate.  I have been reluctant to speak too much about my health of here though I have referenced issues such as Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain. For me, those are just the tip of the iceberg, and believe me, they are enough by themselves!

This blog started out as a vehicle for sharing what I have learned about writing product reviews. Then I realized that writing product reviews gave me something that I didn’t even know I needed. Something I wasn’t looking for. Something that I didn’t even know I needed.

I connected to people. For the 7 years prior to that point I had been completely hiding away from the world. I was at such a great place in my life before that. My career was just what I wanted, my husband and I had made it through the ups and downs of raising our children and were soon to become empty nesters. I was looking forward to the honeymoon years we never had. My life wasn’t perfect but everything we had worked so hard for seemed to be working out. Then I got sick. I got very sick.

I am still sick 8 years later and I will always be sick. I am not saying that because I am giving up, I am saying that because dealing with chronic illness means that at some point you have to have acceptance. Acceptance doesn’t mean that I have given up hope and have lost my faith. It means that I needed to ground myself and accept that my life has changed and I will never be the person that I once was or the person that I had planned and dreamed of being.  As with any great challenge in life, it  changes who you are at your core level.

I have talked before about wanting to share about my health but to be honest I have never known where to start.  So I have just decided to start from today. Today I am anxious to get back to work after being cut off from all of you for almost two weeks. I have so many things to catch up on and so many reviews to write.

I am making a public commitment today and announcing that I will be sharing more about the things that really matter in my life. My health, my family, our family growing to become a grandfamily. In the middle of everything else going on in the last 8 years, my husband and I adopted our youngest son. We are a grandfamily now because he was actually a child we thought of as our grandson, though he was only related by marriage.  When grandparents adopt or start raising a grandchild they are often called a grandfamily. Grandchildren and adoption are things that are very near and dear to my heart so I will be sharing about them also.

To keep everything straight and make it easy for you to pick and choose the posts you are interested in reading, I will be including the name of the category in the post titles. They will go something like this:

Product Review ::  XXXXXXXX
Health :: XXXXXXXX
Grandfamily :: XXXXXXXX
Inspiration :: XXXXXXXX
Coloring for Adults :: XXXXXXXX

I hope you all continue to stick with me as I share my journey and the many different ways that I find Serendipity in my life. Or is it Serendipity finding me?
