Here is the some of the important information about the Liztek USB 2.0 Display Adapter on Amazon.com:

32 and 64 bit supported for Win7,8, and 8.1. 
Windows 8.1/8/7/XP drivers installed automatically via Windows Update. 
Not compatible with ARM-based Windows (MS Surface RT), Mac 10.9 "Mavericks".

Alternatives 
Liztek carries wide variety of graphics display adaptor, Search Amazon for other Liztek VGA, DVI and HDMI display adapters 

Box Contents 
1* USB VGA Display Adaptor, 1 * USB Cable, 1 * Driver CD, 1 Quick Start Guide


The main focus for this adapter is for people that need an extra monitor such as people in the profession of accounting/finance, information technology, etc. This allows you to use another display monitor with your computer.

I personally tested it on two different computers: a MacBook Pro, and a Acer Aspire 5553G dual boot (Windows 7, Ubuntu Linux)

One factor that is important to consider is that the software comes on a small disc, so laptops with the slot feed drive will need to use an extra reader to obtain the software. For my Macbook Pro I copied it onto a flash drive so that I could install it.

Another factor of concern is that the software is not very well developed. The lack of instructions makes it less than ideal. The software is also not verified so your antivirus software might through a precaution against using it. I ran several antivirus & antimalware programs prior to running the programs on my computer, and no malware or viruses were detected.

The device however does work as promised, The connection are very secured through DVI, HDMI, & VGA.

To accurately test the device I ran a benchmark program on both my computer without using the adapter:

It is noticeable that the adapter does not perform as well as the computer (a score of 381 vs 366), however it is not really designed to. But the overall scores are not much different considering the display is being sent through USB 2.0. If you want the same thing with better performance they do make an adapter that is USB 3.0 which is considerably faster, which should work great with a USB 3.0 compatible computer.  It has a very small form factor, and therefore it also gets very hot after intense use such as multiple benchmarks. Since it is small you should make sure that it gets plenty of room to breath, it is generally easy for a device like this to get covered in papers or other items. I would also recommend unplugging it when its not being used and stored it properly so the connections do not get damaged.

Again, this is NOT intended for people that are gamers or graphic designers. This is perfect for someone that is traveling and needs to hook their computer up to an additional monitor, or if their computer does not have a functioning displayport.

If you would like to purchase a Liztek USB 2.0 Display Adapter, you can do so on Amazon,  At the time of this review, the adapter will cost you about $46.  Not bad price if you ask me.

I got this product free in exchange for a review.  I was in no way paid for my opinion, and all words/opinions expressed here are my own.

Health Gurus Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor Review #greatergoods



My family has been plauged by high blood pressure as long as I can remember, so now that I am getting old..ok I'm 30, but it starts young in my family, I've decided to start keeping an eye on my blood pressure.

The Health Gurus Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor is really easy to use and really really fast.  The arm cuff was really easy to put on and understand how to use.  I loved that it actually fit my arm.  In the past, I've had trouble with monitors that are like this one.  Even in the doctor's office, the monitors will not give me a reading, and it has to be taken manually  With the Heal Gurus monitor, I had no issues. It worked great the first time.


I also love that everything fits nicely in it's little black carrying case. If you are interested in purchasing your very own monitor, you can get them on Amazon.  The Health Gurus monitors will cost you between $40 and $80 (depending on if they are running a promotion), and it is Prime eligible Very well worth the cost in my opinion.

Sticky Suction Car Mount by iGotTech Review


Years ago, I got a Sony GPS.  Loved it!  It had this really awesome mount that had sticky stuff on the suction cup, so I could mount it on the dashboard with no problems. Recently, the sticky stuff on the suction cup has started to lose it's stickiness... ah sad day... Anyway, I started searching for alternatives, and found the Sticky Suction Stand from iGot Tech.



This stand, is not quite what I expected.  It has the normal suction cup on the bottom, and the part where you put the device is sticky. I wasn't able to put it on the dash where I normally put the GPS, but it worked fine on the windshield.
It works great for my GPS.  I've not had any issues with it falling off or getting in the way.  It was really easy to adjust.

And... if I ever have to get rid of my GPS, I can put my sunglasses there or my cell phone (or even switch out the two).

Overall, this is a really great suction cup mount.  The sticky part is a huge plus, and was so easy to use.

If you are interested in purchasing your own, you can find them on Amazon at the following link http://www.amazon.com/Cell-Phone-Holder-Smartphone-Accessories/dp/B00LETVK8W.  For under $20, I don't think I could have found anything better.

Apple Certified 6 Feet Lightning Cable Review


The Apple Certified lighting Cable by Accessorise Your Life is a 6ft long cable that will work with any apple device that takes the 8-Pin Lightning cables.  I personally like this cable because it allows me to be able to plug my iPhone 5c and iPad mini in and still use them.  With the old cable, it wasn't long enough to reach to where I normally sit, and now I can use my phone and be comfortable too.

This cable also works with syncing your compatable Apple devices.

Review: #1 Glucosamine - Chondroitin - MSM Supplement - Joint Support. The BEST Joint Supplement. 240 Capsules - MORE than 1000 mg per Serving.




This a a supplemental medicine used to help support your joints. As with anything medicinal it is best to consult with an expert before adding to to your routine. However this type of supplement is considered generally as safe and is used for people as well as animals.


With this supplement you are encouraged to take three capsules on a regular basis after food. For most people that I have talked with the earliest you are going to see real results from this kind of supplement is generally after a week of taking them on a regular basis. The import part is to let it help build up in your system and continue to exercise and stretch your muscles and joints as recommended by a professional.


The thing I like best about the Glucosamine supplement from Number One Nutrition is that it comes in capsule form that is filled with powder, this allows it to be absorbed by your body quicker than a tablet. I noticed that if I forget to take the Glucosamine this way it is not very difficult to get the safe effect after resuming the dosage. This should also make it easier to make the effects of the supplement appear sooner than if it was in the tablet form. I personally can not state that it helped right away, but it was just as effective.


Another personal thing that I like is that the bottle states that it was “Made in USA” that is something that I enjoy seeing, because I know a lot of companies like to import the supplements into the United States and they are usually a lot less effective.


The biggest thing that should notice after taking this supplement is that the level of stiffness has went down. That also goes in with the stretching so that the supplement can work as best as possible. Using this type of supplement is designed to help you stay active or become more active.

I personally recommend to friends and family to take glucosamine supplements. And I think that the supplement from Number One Nutrition would be a great start someone looking to add a glucosamine supplement to their regimen.

If you would like to purchase this product, it can be found at the following link on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/glucosamine-chondroitin-supplement-joint-support/dp/b00lqrxx5a

Garlic Press Review


My family and I LOVE garlic, I mean really LOVE.  We use a ton of it.  So a few years back when I saw my first garlic press I knew I had to have one.


The one I wanted was about $20, so I went and got a cheap one at a discount store like the one above.  I liked it ok.  Every time I used it I  was afraid it would break because parts of it were plastic.

I was so happy when Orblue allowed me to do a review on their garlic press because it's made out of all metal!

The Orblue garlic press makes using garlic so much easier.  I was able to use it with peeled and unpeeled garlic.

The only thing I was it came with is a cleaning brush to help with clean up.  It can be put in the dishwasher or cleaned by hand, but a bush would just speed things up a little.

If you are interested in purchasing your very own garlic press, you can get it on Amazon.  Last I looked, the Orblue Garlic press was the #1 best seller (9/11//14), and at around $16 you can't get any better!  Here is the link for the press on Amazon: http://amzn.com/B00HHLNRVE

Majestic Bombay Double End Dog Dental Tooth Scaler Tartar Remover + Stainless Steel Dental Inspection Mirror Review


***Tip from a professional: Don't use this if you and your dog are not comfortable working in their mouth.  If you and your dog do not have a very trusting relationship, then you and/or your dog could get injured.****

Over the years, I have had several jobs.  Among these jobs, the three I am proudest of are mother, wife, and vet assistant.  As a vet assistant, there were times I was given the opportunities to preform and assist in dental cleanings on dogs, cats, and a rodent or two. That is why I am very excited to bring you this review.

Upon first looking at these tools my first thought is why would you use a mirror while trying to scape a dog's teeth?  A dog's tongue does a great job cleaning in the inside of the dogs teeth normally, so while in human dentistry a mirror is essential, in companion animal dentistry not so much.  The mirror is useless so don't try to use it on your dog.

The scaler is awesome though.  It is very sturdy and great to get right along the gum line to scrape downwards on the tooth. After you scrape the teeth, you might want to flush your dogs mouth with some Virbac Oral Rinse.

If while scraping your dogs teeth, you notice a large amont of puss, loose teeth, or a gum line that is receding, you need to be sure to call your vet.  Sometimes, those things can be signs of bigger problems and will need to be addressed.

One thing I did not like about the scaler is it smelled really bad even before I used it.  So just be sure to clean it really well before you use it.  I am not really sure what the smell was, and I would hate for any chemicals to get in your dog's system.

If you are interested in purchasing the tooth scaler, you can find them on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HFFYXNS/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Majestic Bombay -Blackhead Blemish Remover Clear Tool Acne Pimple Extractors Review




I got the Majestic Bombay -Blackhead Blemish Remover Clear Tool Acne Pimple Extractors to help with my problem areas like my nose and chin. I was really disappointed to start with that there were no directions in the box, so I had to look up YouTube videos like this one below (I warn you, it is gross)

 From the YouTube videos, I determined that I was supposed to take the smaller end, press on my skin and sort of drag it backwards. Well let me tell you, the amount of pressure that I had to use to get anything to come out made the pain almost unbearable the first few times. After a while, I was pretty sure I got the hang of it, but still not 100% sure I am doing it right.

 The one thing that I do like about the Blemish Remover Tool is that it is very well made and strong. I've not had it bend or break yet.

If you would like to check it out for yourself, I found it on Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BAZ7Y6M/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

They are currently $6.99 and available as an add on item via Amazon.

Weight Gurus Smartphone Connected Digital Bathroom Scale Review

The Weight Gurus smartphone connected digital bathroom scale is a bathroom scale that can be synced with your smart phone or tablet to help you keep track of your weight loss journey.

When using a Weight Gurus scale, you have two choices on how you have your weight displayed. One is the traditional view where is just tells you how much you weight.  For example if you weight 130 lbs, it will say 130.  The other display is called the WeightLess mode.  That allows you to have displayed how much weight you lost.  For example, the first time you weighed you were 148lbs, but now you weigh 130lbs, the scale would read -8. You can also switch between these two modes at any time.

With this scale you get the normal features as well like step on to turn it on and step off to turn it off, and the scale will actually auto calibrate once you turn it on.  Here is some of the other features that the Weight Gurus scale has:
Auto user detect. 8 user memory. Non-slip, scratch resistant feet. 4 ultra-precision weighing sensors. 400lb capacity. +/- .1 lb resolution. Durable tempered glass construction. Large weighing platform (150 sq inches). Extra Large, Backlit LCD (4.3"). Kg/Lbs.
Overall I personally like this scale.  My hubby has had some issues with it giving him really strange results.  He has been telling me that it has been like 75-100 lbs off when he uses it.  I've not had an issue though.

Nail Cones Review



If you are anything like me, and find it hard to paint your nails and get "inside the lines".  Then you should really look into the Nail Cones.

Nail cones were developed by Cindy Christman as a way to get a salon quality polish on your nails without all the DIY mess.  

Image source nailcones.com (my camera isn't working)
These little stickers are actually really great.  As you can see in the photo above, when you peel off the sticker, it makes a "U" shape, you put it under the top of your nail, and then along side the side of the your nail.  So any excess polish goes onto the sticker and not on your skin.  

Here is a little video tuturial from the developer:



If you have a little one who loves to do your nails (like my daughter does), here is a little tip.  Put the nail cone on normally, but then put one upside down and around the cuticle of the nail.  My 3 year old thinks she is something since she can now do Mama's nails with out that big mess.  

Over all I love the nail cones.  Right now, they are $5.99 (with shipping), but they can only be purchased via pay pal.  I would love to see them on Amazon, or in stores one day.

C-Slide Review and Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Over the years since webcams became standard on laptops, I have been hearing a lot of about computers being hacked and webcams being activated, or webcam spying.  One report was even that a school was remotely activating the webcams of their students to check up on them.  In my mind, that is no way ok.

I've wondered in the past what I could do to protect myself and my family from this kind of attack.  In theory a good firewall "should" protect exploiting through your capture devices (such as your webcam, your microphone, and keyboard), but what happens if that fails?  What was recommended to me by a network security professional, is to use defense in depth. Instead of relying solely on a firewall or turning off the firewall you should implement multiple practices to prevent your webcam from being exploited.

For webcams, the best defense is to cover your webcam. I've known people in the past who just put a piece of tape over the webcam on their laptop.  But I think that could be rather annoying and looks kind of tacky. And it makes it difficult to use the webcam on your computer, since you have to reapply the tape every time, and it leaves a sticky residue behind. Recently, I was made aware that some companies are making covers for webcams that can easily slide or lift open.  C-Slide is one such company.

I really like to C-Slide because you only have to apply it once.  On the back of the C-Slide, there is two very thin strips of double stick tape.  So if you decide to take it off for some reason, there won't be a HUGE sticky mess.

Another thing that I like about the C-Slide is that is made out of thin, yet durable, plastic. At 1.5mm thick, you know that it won't get in the way of your computer closing and latching closed.

Opening and closing the C-slide is easy too.  Since it is so thin, it doesn't take much just to move the little piece of plastic over.
Over all, I really like to C-slide, and I believe that it would be a great addition to your digital security practices.

If you would like to purchase a C-Slide for your computer, just click this link http://www.c-slide.com/product-page/, scroll down a bit, and shop away.

Adovia Mud Mask Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
I recently got to try the Adovia Dead Sea Mud Mask.  Let me tell you, it has to be one of the best things for my acne that I have found.  And, it is really simple to use.

First you just wash and dry your face.  Apply a thin layer of the mud on your face and let dry for 20 min.  Once the 20 min is up, wash off the mud using water and a wash cloth.  That's it.  Your skin will feel more hydrated and fresh.
Product Description:
This Dead Sea Mud Mask contains 30 Treatments which lasts for 3-4 Months. Each treatment provides the ingredients and results of a $120 facial at a high end dermatology spa! Made with Pure Dead Sea Mud with the highest concentration of minerals - vital for facial skin treatment glow. This mask is made in Israel - by the Dead Sea experts and contains the highest and freshest concentration of Dead Sea Mud. Reduce Oil and Blackheads and get more clear and radiant skin. Works great for Eczema and Psoriasis as well due to Dead Sea salt and mud known properties that help relieve Eczema, Psoriasis and acne symptoms. Apply a layer to clean, dry skin once per week or as needed, as a facial mask for the whole face or as spot treatment for blackheads or pimples.

The only downside that I've found is this 150 ml tube costs $30 on Amazon, but in my opinion it is well worth the cost.

If you are trying to get healthy, at some point you will probably weigh yourself, and why not do that in style!   Ozeri is a manufacture of digital lifestyle products, and they make some the most stylish and accurate scales on the market!

The Ozeri Rev Scale that I received is AWESOME!!  This scale is the worlds first scale to incorporate a syconized electro-mechanical scale and LCD screen to illuminate and instantly point to your weight in lbs and kg, for easy-to read results in all light conditions and from any angle.

  • Auto-calibrated and automatically turns off to conserve battery life. Runs on 3 AAA batteries with a Low Battery Indicator (batteries included). Satisfaction guaranteed.

This has to be the most stylish, easy to use, and accurate scale I've ever in my life used in my home.   I personally found this scale very easy to use and read.

Blacksmith-Labs Barrett Collection Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
One thing I have always loved about the iPhones is all of the accessories that are available for them.  The iPhone 5/5C/5S accoriess have even gotten better.

Take the Blacksmith-Labs iPhone 5/5C/5S holster for example.  Blacksmith-Labs has really gone above and beyond with this one.  They used top quality leather and ultra fine stitching for an elegant and functional phone holster.

The iPhone fits in the holster like a glove so I know that it's securely place.  For a little extra comfort, Blacksmith-Labs added a top flap with latch.


To top things off, Blacksmith-Labs added one of their metal alloy belt clips. These belt clips have been precisely created to hold onto a belt, and swivel if you need to. Here is what Blacksmith-Labs says about their belt-clips:
The Blacksmith-Labs Signature Series metal alloy belt clip is what differentiates our smartphone holsters from any other leather belt clip holsters in the world.  With the clip face and swivel assembly precisely created with metal alloy, these belt clips are stronger than any other smartphone holster belt clip you have ever seen.  While functionality is not everything, we have selected various finishes to enhance the beauty of the Signature Series belt clips.  
When durability is of paramount, there are no plastic that equals to the mechanical strength of metal alloy.  This is the reason that we have chosen to construct our Signature Series belt clips using metal alloy, complete with anodized finishes to give them a look of luxury without compromising durability.

All in all, these iPhone holsters are above my what I expected out of the phone holster.  If you are interested in purchasing a iPhone holster from Blacksmith-Labs, you just need to go to http://blacksmith-labs.com/.  The holsters start at $79.95, but you are really paying for top quality here.

Holster Grande AND Chop Pill Cutter Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
We just have to admit it, at some point in our lives we will probably be on some sort of medication either temporarily or permanently.  Sabi has made things a lot easier for those for take medications.

I recently got to try out two of their products, and I have to say I am pretty impressed.  The first product I got was the Holster Grande.

The Holster Grande is a travel pill case that has several compartments to hold medications.  It even has a "hidden" compartment on the cap.  It has a clip on it, and will fit in a shirt or pants pocket.



Here is the information about the Holster Grande from Sabi's website.
• Capacity: 14 capsules. Fish oil fits!
• Weight: 32 g/1.2 oz
• Dimensions: H: 119.7 mm x W: 38.7 mm x Depth: 25 mm/H: 4.7 in x W: 1.5 in x Depth: 0.9 in
• Compartments: W: 27 mm x L: 57 mm x D: 15 mm/W: 1.1 in x L: 2.2 in x D: 0.6 in
& W: 27 mm x L: 27 mm x D: 15 mm/W: 1.1 in x L: 1.1 in x D: 0.6 in
& W: 19 mm x L: 35 mm x D: 10.5 mm/W: 0.7 in x L: 1.4 in x D: 0.4 in
• Extra-large 2-compartment pill box plus one "quick access compartment" under the cap
• Easy click-and-slide opening
• Pill box clips onto anything - bag, briefcase, pocket
• Extra-large compartments hold pills of all sizes and shapes
• Fish oil fits!
• BPA-free
• Easily hand washable

I personally liked this pill case since it fits nicely in my purse.  My husband tried it out, and he didn't like it as well.  He said that the pill case kept falling out of his pants pocket, and at one point had come open.  That worried me a little because if their had been pills in the Holster Grande, they would have fallen out of his pocket.  So, if you are thinking about getting this, I would suggest that you carry it in your purse/backpack or in a shirt pocket.


The next product I received was the CHOP Pill cutter.  This pill cutter was really nice because, I was able to cut a oblong shaped pill without having to worry about it moving.  The secret to this is the universal rubber tray (the grey area) that holds the pill in place while it is being cut.



Here is Sabi's info on the CHOP pill cutter.
• Weight: 34 g/1.2 oz 
• Dimensions: H: 50 mm x W: 55 mm x D: 38 mm/H: 2 in x W: 2.2 in x D: 2.2 in 
• Ultra-safe and effective, durable plastic poly (PCTA) blade 
• Pill splitter's specialized inset rubber impressions stabilize pills of all sizes and shapes 
• Light press pill splitter mechanism distributes weight applied to cap evenly 
• Easy on hands/wrists no matter “hardness” of pill material 
• Halves and quarters pills cleanly and precisely to ensure accurate dosage 
• Slip-preventing rubber base 
• BPA-free
 Overall, I am very pleased with the products that Sabi sent me test.  The CHOP pill cutter has to be my favorite, but I like the HOLSTER Grande as well.

Leather Charm Bracelet and Penny Auctions Canada Review

If you are looking for a place to buy and sell on a auction type website, you should head over to Penny Auctions Canada.

Penny Auctions Canada, or PAC, is a little different from any other auction site I've used or seen in the past.  First of all, you have to purchase your bids.  Each bid you buy cost $0.75, and each bid you make raises the current bidding price $0.01.  I personally did not use their services, so I cannot comment on how that goes really other than what is mentioned on their site.
PAC recently featured a beautiful multi strand leather charm bracelet on their site.
It is made from leather, wax cord, and metal, and suede.  The bracelet is very stylish, and looks doesn't look cheep at all.

I loved mine, because it featured motivational/inspirational charms.  The colors were beautiful, and really matched my style.
The bracelet is fully adjustable, so it can fit almost any wrist.

If you would like to check out PAC, just go to http://pennyauctionscanada.com/.  You may also connect with this via the following social networks:
