    A Zenni Review: One Year Later

    Last year, I wrote a review of Zenni. Zenni is an online company. It allows you to buy your prescription glasses at a cheaper price than the store. As someone who wears bifocals, a cheaper price was extremely intriguing. My overall consensus last year was that Zenni is a great brand. I’m back now, after a year of wearing my Zenni glasses to check in and give you my thoughts. I have three pairs of glasses. Two are regular glasses with my bifocal prescription. The other is a pair of sunglasses, also with my bifocal prescription. My two pairs of everyday glasses have gone through major wear and tear. Crush…

    A Review of Manta Sleep Masks

    I bought a new sleep mask. I have been using sleep masks for the past few years. I find that I can’t sleep without them now. My old one was getting a little gross so I decided it was time for an upgrade. Someone suggested Manta to me and so I went for it! I bought the weighted sleep mask for $39.99. That seemed pretty steep for a sleep mask, but then again my old one was $5 and I used it for three years. I’m hoping that a $40 mask lasts at least five years. So let’s talk about the good, the bad, and everything in between. The shipping…

    A Review of Thinx Underwear

    If you checked out my review of the Honey Pot Company, you might’ve found your way to this article. I’m on a journey to a no waste period. Part of that journey was cutting out pads. Like most women, I have break through bleeding that requires some security. I stumbled upon Youtube videos of influencers trying out Thinx. I thought I would give it a try myself. I bought a few different products and I’m here to tell you what I thought. My Shopping Experience I went into this blind. Besides the Youtube videos I watched, I had no sense of what I wanted. I knew that I wanted a…

    A Review of Honey Pot Company

    I recently switched to natural products. In an effort to truly take care of my body, I wanted all of my products to be natural. In July, I decided to stop the Depo Provera shot and allow my body to do what it does naturally. As a child, I dealt with recurrent ovarian cysts and I’ve been on birth control for almost ten years to control that. Now, I’m experiencing a wave of what happens post birth control. I needed feminine products but I wanted the company I trusted to have the same values I have for my body. That’s when I came across the Honey Pot Company. I’ve now…

    A Review of Native Deodorant

    Recently, I started trying out new natural products. I had heard a lot about Native Deodorant. They sponsor multiple Youtubers that I enjoy watching. I also appreciated their brand focus. After running out of my previous deodorant, I took the plunge. I bought both their new non-plastic deodorant in the scent Coconut and Vanilla. In addition, I got their travel mini deodorant in the scent Pumpkin Spice Latte.  I bought them both from Target but they had to be ordered. I got the non-plastic one with two day shipping. The mini one took a week to ship. There’s not much to say about the ordering experience since I went through…

    A Review of RoadID

    Recently, after renewing my license I decided to get my medical alert band. What a random time to get a medical alert bracelet. It’s not random, I was given the option to signal I had a medical alert bracelet on my license. I thought this was a fantastic idea, I checked the box right away. Then I realized I really needed to get one and finally commit. I started my search for a medical alert bracelet over a year ago. It’s been quite the journey. I struggled to find one that was cute. I wanted it to look like jewelry but also have it be clear that it is a…

    Pill Organizer Review

    I take medication multiple times a day. I’ve always used a small pill container to organize my morning and nightly medications. Overtime, my lifestyle has outgrown it. I take medication at three different times throughout the day. Setting out my nightly pills and morning pills at the same time worked for a while but posed challenges. Particularly when I go out, I have to put all my medications together in front of people. It’s cumbersome and time consuming. It also raises a lot of questions. During the day, I take my medication and sometimes forget whether I took it or not. I was on the hunt for a better solution.…

    My Experience at Mayo Clinic Rochester

    Everyone has an opinion of Mayo Clinic. Whether they’ve been accepted as a patient or denied, people usually have something to say about it. The reviews I heard before going were difficult to follow. They were all specific to doctors or an isolated experience. I wanted to shed light on my experience as a whole. I’ve been treated at Mayo Clinic for a year now. I’ve seen hundreds of doctors and been hospitalized multiple times. I’ve had good experiences and bad experiences. This is an overview of my experience at Mayo Clinic Rochester. The first doctor I saw at Mayo Clinic was less than thrilling. I had an anxious stomach…

    A Review of Zenni

    This year, instead of going to the Target optical, I decided to try Zenni’s. I was hesitant to pick out glasses online because I didn’t know what the end result would be. After talking to someone who had used the website before I decided to go for it and take a leap of faith. So here are my impressions of buying prescription glasses from Zenni: The Shopping Experience There are so many options. I spent a collective 7-8 looking for glasses over several days. I took the face shape quiz twice and got two different answers. That wasn’t very helpful. Then I shopped by color, thinking I would be adventurous…

    A Review of Thred Up

    Lately, I’ve been more conscious of the waste that my lifestyle produces. After taking a class on both water sustainability, it’s clear that our habits are killing the planet. What does this have to do with clothes? Quick fashion trends produce a lot of waste and fabric that ends up in landfills. I wanted to find a solution without losing my ability to shop. Thred Up was the ideal situation for me. Everything you buy is second hand and everything you donate is either recycled or sold. My Buying Experience I’ve bought clothes from Thred Up multiple times now. The experience of shopping is relaxing and organized. Preferences can be…
