Sinocare new model Blood pressure monitor

I have high blood pressure so I check myself regularly. I need a a good monitor that is accurate. I have been using this monitor from Sinocare for about a week now and have had no problems at all. When I first got it I check my blood pressure with my old monitor and then with this one and they were exact.

A couple of the features are it talks to you. It tells you to remain seated and not to talk. When it is done it tells you your results. This is awesome for someone who cannot see very well. It also has a logging system built in. You can go back through and track your results for your personal use or to inform your health care professional. It has a nice velcro arm cuff that is comfortable on my arm. IT does not scratch or dig into my skin. There is a clear drawing on the arm cuff to show you where the tube needs to be to get accurate results.

This does come with the 4 AAA batteries needed to get started. They are folded up in the arm cuff, so you have to look for them. So as soon as this is delivered it is ready to plug the arm cuff into the rotating hole on the side of the machine, insert the batteries and you are ready to go.

Hotec 4 pieces Set Basting Brushes Silicone Heat Resistant

I am very impressed with this set of 4 colorful silicone basting brushed by Hotec. I have used them with barbecue sauce and with melted garlic butter, and they worked great with both. My set came with a purple, yellow, aqua, and lime green brush. The brushes are made of silicone. The handle is stiff so not sure if it is metal, wood, or plastic on the inside. The brushes are about 8 1/2 inches long and about 1 1/3 inches wide. They are dishwasher safe.

The brushes are Temperature Resistant from -104℉ to 660℉ (-40℃ to 315℃). These are made of 1 piece so you don't have to worry about bristles falling out or the bristle head falling off. I do have other brushes that the heads start to fall off after several uses. These will not. There are 3 rows of bristles so they actually hold a lot of sauce in them. They are also non stick so clean up is easy whether you put them in the dishwasher or hand wash.

I love my set and am thinking about buy another set and making a gift basket for each of my daughters and adding one of the brushes to each basket.

Topical Muscle Recovery Serum

As you get older you notice more and more aches and pains. As an athlete you probably have a few tender areas after work outs. Anyone who moves, lifts, or bends probably has a sore spot now and then. Deer Antler Velvet has been used more then you may know for helping with sore and achy muscles. Personally I did not know anything about Deer Antler Velvet until I stumbled across this Topical Muscle Recovery Serum from Pure Velvet.

This topical serum is made from Hydrolyzed Jojoba Esters, Emu Oil, Jojoba Oil, Purified Water, Organic Grape Alcohol, Lavender Oil, and Velvet Antler Extract. It will separate in the bottle so you should shake well with before every use. There is a light smell to it but it pretty much goes away as soon as your skin soaks it in. IT just takes a drop for regular sized spot areas. It will take a bit more for larger areas like back or legs.

I have been using it on my very painful wrist. Due to having nerve damage as well it does not totally end all of my pain but it does help. The benefits of Deer Antler Velvet are Improved range of motion, Reduced muscle soreness after exertion, Assists a reduction in recovery rehab time, and Promotes healthy skin rejuvenation. Basically how it works is Blood is drawn to the damaged areas by the growth factors in the serum and accelerate the circulation of tissue rejuvenation.

Magic Leaf Hemp Tea Sampler

This Magic Leaf Hemp Tea Sampler from is amazing. You get 1 serving of 8 different teas. These teas are infused with hemp and a variety of  teas, herbs and spices for flavor and benefits. The teas themselves are pretty. they are not finely ground so you can see the different herbs, spices, flowers and more in them. The teas have 60 MG of CBD per serving.

Each package gives you full ingredients of and tells you what it is good for, like relation, focus, reducing inflammation and more. The hemp is grown in and blended in Troy New York USA. You should use 12 ounces of 212 degree water and 1 packet of tea and let steep for 7 minutes to get maximum dosage and flavor.

I have not tried all 8 teas yet and a couple I will not be trying myself. One has coconut and chocolate, I do not like coconut and am allergic to chocolate so will be adding that to a gift basket for one of my adult children or a friend. Of the ones I have tried the Soul Tonic was my favorite. The flavor of the blend was amazing. It has Chamomile,, Citrus, hemp, and valerian in it. It is for calmness and relaxation and it really did work. I drank it before bed and had a very restful night.

Awakened by Him by Eyta Jade blitz

Awakened by Him
Eyta Jade
(Zinklaus Duet, #1)
Publication date: August 6th 2020
Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense

Falling into him was a dance with destiny; little did she know it would be her unravelling.

Zina at 24 and fresh out of the academic world, arrives in London for a new paralegal job. She is thrown for a loop when her chance at something new and uncomplicated is threatened from the moment she meets business magnate, Niklaus Clarke.

He wants more from her than she’s willing to give, because giving him more means undoing her past which she’s been running from. Unable to resist the undeniable attraction she feels or the allure of the unyielding billionaire who didn’t get to where he is by giving up, Zina surrenders.

What should have been a mere awakening turns into blurred lines and shattering of boundaries. Until their secrets, lies and half-truths threaten the gravity that pulls them toward each other.

Bridges will be crossed, bridges will be burnt. But, will bridges be rebuilt?

Goodreads / Amazon


“Open,” Niklaus said.

So bossy, I thought.

We were on his couch, facing each other as he attempted to feed me comfort food. A.K.A. Haagen-Dazs caramel cone.

“Why do you have to feed me?” I argued, finding solace in a possible banter to distract me from my solemn mood.

He heaved a sigh, looking at me intently without lowering the spoon of ice cream from where it was—in front of my mouth. “My sweet baby, you are sad and won’t tell me why.” His lips spread in a thin, but small sad smile. “But, this I can do for you. Let me take care of you. Let me feed you.”

Tears stung my eyes as I struggled with my emotions. Such simple words evoked powerful feelings in me. All he wanted was to do something nice for me, and yet I remained difficult. So I opened for him, letting him feed me to his satisfaction. I watched his eyes lit up every time I opened for another spoon.

The fact that he took so much pleasure in doing something so mundane was everything—the simple things. My heart was in trouble and at that moment, I didn’t care.

When he was done pleasuring me with the taste of rich caramel swirl that only Haagen-Dazs could deliver, he sprawled into the arm of the sofa.

“Come.” He said, opening his arms to welcome me. And, like a dog hungry for affection, I turned, reclining into him and laying my body on his chest.

His arms wrapped around me instantly, and I closed my eyes.

I felt safe and at home in his arms. Ashraf and his parents had taken me in when I was homeless; my brother had come into my life around when the well, awkward night with Ashraf happened, and we grew apart for a few months. He’d come in and filled a hole created by temporary emotional separation from Ashraf.

But the feeling of safety I felt in the arms of Niklaus was different. He wasn’t filling any vacant space. It was like he’d always had a place in my heart, waiting for him to step in and take his place. I’d never felt more at peace, so wanted, so cherished, and all he had to do was feed me ice cream and wrap his arms around me.

Am I falling for him? I wondered. I physically shook my head, wading off the idea, but not before he noticed.

“What?” he asked.

I couldn’t very well tell him my heart was wondering if I was falling for him, but that same heart was convinced the answer was negative.

So, I said instead, ‘tell me something about you.”

He chuckled, the slight shaking of his body as he did so warming me all over. “Am I supposed to believe you haven’t used the school of Google to do your private investigation on me?”

“Would most of what I find there tell me anything real about you?” I challenged.

“No,” he confirmed with a certain resentment.

I shrugged. “Moreover, I haven’t stalked you. I don’t do social media or track people on the internet.” I explained.

There was the exception of the night at his parents, but those were for professional reasons directed at his father, and didn’t count.

His arms tightened around me like he couldn’t get enough of me. “You, doux bebe are one of a kind.”

I smiled. It was nice to hear that someone saw me as a unique being. But, the gag was—he was truly the special one.

He’d awakened me, and he apparently had the power to make me feel safe and distract me.

“I’ll start. I’ve always wanted a dog, and I will get one soon.”

“Hmmm…I think when I was young, I did too. But, somewhere along the way, I forgot.”

I laughed. “Your turn.”

“I just told you I wanted a dog too. That was my something.”

I laughed some more at his manipulative and creative way of deflecting.

If I was terrible at revealing things about myself, he was impossible.

We were a match made in heaven. But what would that mean for us in the long term?

The fact that I was thinking of the future, despite insisting that we were just fuck buddies told me one thing—even if I was unable to admit that I might have been falling for him, what I knew for sure was that I was in trouble. My heart was in trouble.

Author Bio:

When Eyta Jade read Danielle Steele’s full circle, a dream was born. A dream to evoke the kind of emotions that reading Full Circle did for her.

Eyta knew that no matter what or how long it took, she would always find her way to becoming an author.

When Eyta isn’t penning down tastefully written steamy romance stories, you’d find her reading one instead.

Lest we forget, she obsesses over wine, soul and RnB music.
