Hold On Review | Plant Based Sustainable Compost Bags 

Currently we are in the era where more and more people are becoming sustainable conscious. From paper straws to plant based alternatives it can be hard to trust in alternatives to the traditional plastic products. Trash bags and sandwich bags are perhaps the most used plastic products in the average household. 

Although there are products that address this issue such as washable bin liners and fabric bags some (meaning me) cannot stomach the idea on washing my trash liner. This is where plant based bags come in to save the day as they are better for the environment than plastic, yet not revolting for the majority to adapt. A simple switch of bags is all it takes to make a difference. This year California has adapted new rules of no longer allowing residences to throw food scraps in the trash bin. Instead they are required to go in the grass compost bin pushing households to switch to more sustainable choices. The only thing that is left up to us is finding products that actually work well and don’t seep all over the house on the way to the bin.

The second plastic go to is the sandwich bag. Did you know it takes over 1,000 years to break down a plastic ziplock bag? Even after the 1,000 years it never truly breaks down either. Hold On’s plant based alternative breaks down in just a couple of weeks rather than years. Yes, there are other options that are “greener” such as fabric bags but often convenience wins over sustainability. A simple switch in brands is easier to convince someone to do than adding a load of reusable bags to the laundry. Plus, getting little ones to keep track of bags at school sounds like a nightmare. Not to mention the fact that the fabric bags often make food stale by lunchtime. Watch the video below to see if this brand of plant based bags works just as well as the plastic options on the market.

No Issue Custom Rubber Stamp Unboxing & Review

Graphic design has always had a spot in my heart which is why I have always wanted a custom made rubber stamp. Yes, you can print any graphic but there is something about a tangible stamp and ink pad that makes me feel official. It’s silly but this thing has been in my wish list for several occasions so I am happy to finally have one. For Christmas I received this one from my sister and at first I was honestly a bit disappointed because it is so small. Originally I had wanted the larger custom stamp but now that I have the mini I am pleasantly surprised at how useful it is. Although I do have the larger edition in the mail as well I am so excited to finally test out No Issues stamps.

Blueland Update 2021 | New Products

Although I’ve already discussed this brand over a year ago, after receiving multiple comments I thought is was time to revisit an issue many people have been having. Blueland is an eco friendly company that creates sustainable cleaning products. If you missed my first post of it click here to check it out first. In addition I also created a second post regarding the main issue people had been having which is the bottles cracking and breaking entirely.

Mic Review & Comparison | Tzumi

Sound can be a make it or break it issue for a lot of avenues which is why I am reviewing an external microphone. There is no bigger let down than watching back a video with a mysterious buzzing sound or someone sneezing in the distance. On the mark there are thousands of external microphones to choose from so here are some things to look for while browsing.

Aromatherapy for Anxiety: Does it Work?

Anxiety has been a constant roller coaster that I am tired of being on. After some research on how to surpass anxiety I came across aromatherapy as an all-natural remedy. The company Plant Therapy came up as a premium brand for aromatherapy, so I purchased the pre-diluted roll-on Worry Free Synergy.

Get Bendy: Review

While I’ve owned Get Bendy for a couple of years now, I recently committed to set aside time for myself to stretch four days a week. Taking out my tablet to follow the Get Bendy program always seemed draining, mainly because the tablet was a bit outdated that I had installed it on. Needless to say, it would shut off every other page, which led me to printing out the Get Bendy Guide.

DetraPel Review

Summer is one of those seasons when I want to break out those squeaky clean white on white shoes. Then the little voice in the back of my mind goes through a checklist of the day’s activities to protect the innocence of those beautiful white sexy chucks. The wet grass, dust, dirt, the possibility of someone spilling something on them.

Apple Pencil Review

The Background

As an artist, sketching, doodling and so on are a huge part of my creative expression outlet. Since tablets came into existence, I have always been a more paper and #2 pencil kind of person. The first tablet I tried was a Samsung that came with a stylist specifically for drawing, I fell in love. However, after a couple years it starts to lag due to upgrades past it’s capabilities. Long story short, I decided to try the iPad for the first time when they came out with the Apple Pencil, specifically for university and sketching.

Adventure with Ease

This is one of my favorite apps that I use multiple times in the week. It is essential to finding my car at the large unmarked university parking lots or even finding my way back to a certain spot. The app pinpoints your location and saves it by pressing the pin button. On your way back simply hit the arrow and it will route back to the pin. Overall it takes the stress away from remembering exactly what turns I took in order to find my way back or how far away I really parked the car.

Memory Lifeline 

Apple products are a blessing but also a curse when you do not own only Apple products. This little guy takes away the constant headache of having an android and a MacBook. Even if an Apple product isn’t slowing you down it is a fairly simple way to share multiple photos with others on the go quickly. Before using this device I recommend charging the phone, as it drains battery life when downloading over a hundred photos. I learned this the hard way after attempting to pick and choose certain photos I wanted to transfer (well over 1,000).
