Recently I was sent the TKO Jump Rope to try out. Here is a little info about the TKO:

Reach your fitness goals with this durable jump rope by TKO.
  • Soft rubber-coated grip
  • Metal ball-bearings
  • 9-foot solid vinyl
  • PVC/polypropylene/steel

First of all these come in the most fun colors ever. I received the blue and yellow version, but like them all. Also it has super comfortable handles that are fun to hold and it so easy to use. I really feel this is a great addition to my workout routines and a good way to change things up! Also they are available at Macy's so that makes them so much easier to get as well. I would say this is a must add to the fitness at home list.

Uncommon Goods Review

Recently I was contacted by Uncommon Goods to check out some of the items in their Uncommon Good Home Decor line to review on the blog. As someone that will hopefully (soon-fingers crossed) have a new home to decorate this seemed to come at the perfect time for me. I was sent some information about the company (click here) as well as their product (click here) that I wanted to share:

In 1999, our founder Dave Bolotsky visited a Smithsonian Museum craft show in Washington D.C. and was captivated by the variety of unique handmade goods and the talented people behind them. He saw there was a significant public demand for beautiful design. At the same time, he realized that the artists working to make those pieces were often traveling great distances in order to sell their wares at the show. Inspired by his experience, Dave had a vision to create something that had never existed before—an online marketplace to connect makers and their creations with individuals looking for truly special goods, regardless of the physical distance between the maker and the shopper.

Dave turned this idea into UncommonGoods.  He continued traveling to craft fairs and trade shows, meeting artists and finding stand-out merchandise, while running the business out of his home on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Before long, the company had outgrown Dave’s apartment, and moved through three successively larger offices in downtown Manhattan, eventually settling in our current location in Brooklyn, NY.

So a local company with local products, I could not wait to look around. As is our practice Hubby and I started with Cool Office Gadgets and Tools (click here) as well as Unique Accessories (click here) on the site. Then hubby found the Skyline Desk Organizer (click here). With a British Hubby, a love for travel, and hopefully (fingers crossed again) a new home office to outfit soon, this was perfect.

I loved that the pieces was pretty and functional as well as could be reorganized any way I wanted. I could not wait to try them out on our work space in the basement. The piece does not disappoint. It is so nice made yet simple I love the way it looks on our work area. This will be a perfect piece to move and grow with us.

Get sandal ready with Emjoi

I recently had the chance to try the Emjoi Mirco Pedi Home Pedicure device. From Emjoi :

With summer approaching, it is time for head to toe/feet beauty regimes. Emjoi has been gearing up its collection of perfect pedicure tools to take care of feet so that they become admirably sandal and barefoot ready. The Micro-Pedi is an essential beauty tool...a  product that actually perfectly performs a task that everyone needs done. This sleek, light weight home pedicure tool will quickly, hygienically and painlessly remove hard cracked skin and calluses from the soles of the feet with spa-like results. The unit works with many attachments so that foot care is just the beginning....a manicure attachment takes care of nail and various rollers work well for rough skin (and for men), elbows and precision kits with special cones for hard to reach areas.

So I was a little nervous to use my Emjoi Mirco Pedi Home Pedicure because I normally have a hard time scrubbing my feet. However, this was so EASY to use. I was done both feet in 5 minutes and got all the deep skin off. Also it felt like a little foot massage as well. I can not wait to make this part of my regular routine it was so easy. I would say that everyone needs to try this little baby!

You can get your own at Emjoi!

    San-J Asian BBQ sauce

    I have talked in the past about my love of the amazing San-J sauces that we have had the chance to try, and the most recent was one of the best yet. We recently tried the Asian BBQ sauce to marinate some chicken before grilling it. This might have been our favorite yet. The chicken was so moist and flavor full, both the baby and the pre-schooler ate it up.

    I love that these sauce are gluten and MSG free as well. They make me feel like we are eating healthy as well.

    Asian Cooking Sauce - Gluten Free

    Asian BBQ

    A new twist on traditional barbecue sauce, Asian BBQ infuses sweet & smoky barbecue flavor with a hint of the exotic. Ginger, garlic and sesame add the perfect Asian touch to this certified gluten free sauce. Asian BBQ is a great match for the grill. Use in your favorite barbecue pork ribs recipe or brush on during the last few moments of grilling chicken. It's also a tasty condiment for gluten free chicken nuggets or fries.
