Introducing the New BISSELL CrossWave Cordless Max


BISSELL Crosswave Cordless Max
Time savers. It’s all about time savers and simplifying my life that makes me roll – especially in the cleaning department.  I’m willing to try anything that can help me get the task done faster because – seriously – life is all about time and I don’t want to spend all my time cleaning. There are so many other things – things like crafting – that I’d much rather be spending my time doing.  This is where I do believe that the New BISSELL Crosswave Cordless Max was designed to help simplify my life and save me a lot of time. Let’s educate you on what this machine does – maybe it would be a time saver for you too?

Let me introduce the NEW! BISSELL CrossWave Cordless Max now @BestBuy – This machine vacuums & washes your floors at the SAME time:

This BISSELL CrossWave CORDLESS Max – is all about simplifying your floor cleaning tasks.  I stressed, cordless above, because I am so sick of fighting with cleaner cords. So many vacs and floor cleaners have such short cords that I spend, what I consider, way too much time plugging and unplugging and re-plugging into outlets. I fight with the cord as they seem to always be in my way – getting wrapped around the cleaning unit – wrapped around furniture. I won’t go out and buy a new cleaning gadget until one dies – but once they do die – all be will cordless.

Though the concept of having a vacuum and floor washer all-in-one isn’t a new concept; though experiencing this particular cleaner with no cord that can go from carpet (freshens them) to floor seems so promising in being a cleaning tool, I do believe I need. 

Features of CrossWave Cordless Max

BISSELL Crosswave Cordless Max

Multi-surface cleaning – Great feature since many homes consist of more than one type of flooringMulti-surface cleaning means it’s safe and effective for use on tile, sealed wood floors, laminate, linoleum, rubber floor mats, pressed wood floors and more. It even refreshes area rugs.


BISSELL Crosswave Cordless Max

Improved edge cleaning

Easily pick-up pet hair that gathers along baseboards and in corners of your home.

Yeah – another great feature. Hopefully this lives up to the test when I get mine.  Having to bend over to clean around edges constantly – drives me insane especially since we have a lot of pets and we live in a house that is the dustiest by far. One would think we lived in the desert and kept our windows open 24/7. 

Self cleaning cycle

Helps maintain machine’s cleaning performance by cleaning the brush roll and inside of the CrossWave, so there’s less clean-up after cleaning.

Okay, so this may just be my favorite feature of this machine.  Personally, I don’t have time to take a cleaning machine apart after every use nor do I want to.

Two-tank design system

Keeps clean and dirty water separate and makes filling and disposing of water easy. So you never clean with dirty water.

Have you ever mopped a floor with a traditional mop then used a steam cleaner right after?  It’s gross to see what the mop left behind…disgustingly gross.  I think of this unit being a lot like a carpet cleaner in having two tanks and that is a great feature in getting the floors clean. 

Bagless technology

Saves time and energy with no bags to buy or replace.

Ah – we all know bags end up full when we can’t get to the store right away.  Many complain that the cup space for debris in these modern cleaners are too small.  This may be true – okay they are – but running to the trash barrel to empty the container is much easier than not having a bag handy to replace a full one.  Getting the task done when you’re feeling or needing to get it done is so much more important.

Cord free – My 2nd most favorite feature…oh those cords!  Though, I do wish the battery had a longer run time….but we’ll see.  I get interrupted a lot so it may be just fine.

Up to 30 minutes of cordless cleaning power with a 36V lithium ion battery.

BISSELL Crosswave Cordless Max

Wi-Fi connected

BISSELL Connect app provide helpful alerts, maintenance tracking and usage tips.

Another nice feature, because I don’t know about you, but for me – I lose track of when I need to do what maintenance on all these gadgets I use.

Uniden R7 Radar Detector – Monitor Your Speed with Voice Activation


Have a lead foot?  Get speeding tickets often?  Wish you could find a way to help keep your teen safer while driving by helping them keep their speed in check?  Can’t afford the bells and whistles the newer cars offer?  The Uniden R7 Radar Detector could be just what you need.

Not everyone can afford the luxury of purchasing a newer vehicle with all the bells and whistles, I’m one of those people. In driving a couple loaner cars while my vehicle was in for repairs, a couple features of the cars I drove that I really liked were 1. the mirrors that told me there was a vehicle near me and 2. one would flash me my speed.  The speed feature, though not a voice alert, was nice as I can find myself driving a bit too fast in cars I don’t know – heck, sometimes that happens in my own vehicle.  This is where you might just find the Uniden R7 to be a handy little device to bring aboard your vehicle.

You ask what’s so special about the Uniden R7 – it’s more than a radar detector.  It can help you keep your speed to where it should be – keeping you safer, other vehicles on the road safer and keeping money in your pocket rather than doling it out on a speeding ticket.

The device comes equipped with:

  • With voice notifications and a MAX speed warning system you will be able to hear when you exceed the preset speed without taking your eyes off the road – which in turn will help avoid speeding tickets.  In addition….
  • The large OLED display includes arrows that identify the direction of incoming threats and change color on a scale of green to red to indicate the signal’s strength.
  • The Uniden R7 radar tracks up to four signals simultaneously for greater awareness as you drive

Can you see the benefits of owning a Uniden R7?  You can monitor your speed without taking your eyes off the road. This device will let you know when you go above that MAX speed with the voice notifications and MAX speed warning system – preventing you falling prey to a speeding ticket.  Though, more importantly, you’ll be keeping your vehicle at a safe driving speed.  Seriously, let’s face it – driving on the roads isn’t what it was 20, or even, 10 yrs ago.  We all have to do our part to keep ourselves, our passengers and other vehicles on the road safe.  The device has a large display – a feature older eyes really appreciate.  And, it tracks up to four signals.

Key Product Specs

  • Voice notifications – Allow you to focus on the road
  • Works with most vehicles
  • Get real-time alerts in your existing vehicle.
  • Color OLED display – The easy-to-see information display provides a clear view.  Plus, the large screen allows you to quickly and easily read the information while allowing you to maintain focus on the road ahead.
  • Long-range detection – High sensitivity on all conventional and instant-on radar bands…Directional arrows indicate where the radar signal is originating from
  • K-Filter and Ka-Filter – Filter noise from the K and Ka bands to prevent false detections (K and Ka bands are radio wave frequencies that send out alerts with many detectors telling you how strong (close) the signal is).

There are so many that could benefit from owning a Uniden R7.  Head on over to the Best Buy site to read all the specs on the Uniden R7.  Stay safe.

***FCS received an Eternity Rose to facilitate this review.  All opinions are those of the writer’s.

The Eternity Rose Review – Real Roses Glazed or Dipped in Gold, Silver, Platinum – The Perfect Everlasting Gift

The Eternity Rose - Blue

Where do we start in telling you all about the absolutely stunning blue natural glazed and trimmed in 24k gold rose by The Eternity Rose?  Let’s start with exquisite.  Unique.  Vibrant.  There is nothing about this rose that doesn’t scream rich beauty.

In unboxing the product, the amazing detail brought to the table was immediately noticed.  The rose came shipped in an outer brown normal packing box.  Inside that box was a white box with the company’s logo that encased the case the rose sets in – a heavier-weighted rich brown with burgundy undertone case with a gold hook clasp.  This rich looking case encapsulated the stunning dark blue gold dipped rose in a crushed velvet dark blue fabric covered grooved padded bed.  The inside top of the case held a secure padding lined with the same velvety fabric as the rose sets on, along with the words, “The Eternity Rose”.

Eternity Rose

Take this rose out of the case and – Oh! My!.  The edges of the petals of the rose are outlined in gold – each and every petal.  The edges of the leaves – outlined in gold.  And the stem – totally encased in 24k gold. Absolutely vibrant deep blue petals with gold edges that are simply stunning. The leaves are absolutely a beautiful deep green outlined in gold.

The Eternity Rose - Blue

Stunning.  Intricate details.  Real roses dipped in 24k gold, platinum, silver and glazed roses and glazed rose jewelry.  Roses that lasts forever.

THE ROSES – Our Flowers are Natural Roses

We pick them at the peak of their beauty, and then dip them in pure 24k gold, platinum or silver. We also glaze and gold-trim roses and rose jewelry. All Eternity Rose products will literally last an eternity.

There is only one genuine Eternity Rose. We have seen many companies try to copy the Eternity Rose over the years; and good luck to them because precious metal plating on vegetative material is by no means easy to do. In fact, it has taken us nine years to progress it to the quality level that exists today.

Unfortunately we see many poor and hastily produced imitations which regrettably leave people with a less than impressive item in hand, just before the gift event.  We, on the other hand, aim to provide a reasonably priced gift relative to the workmanship and overall quality.

As Aldo Gucci once said, “Quality is remembered long after Price is forgotten”.

We employ qualified horticulturists to tend to our roses, grown in our very own nurseries, who ensure that only the finest and most beautiful flowers are chosen for our Eternity Rose products. Once they have been grown to perfection, they are picked by hand and begin the long, complex process of preservation. Whether they are dipped in gold, silver or platinum, or glazed and trimmed with pure 24 karat gold, each rose’s natural beauty will be eternally preserved without fading or tarnishing over time.

Each rose is unique, intricately crafted by hand, and designed to last for an eternity. It is a clear symbol of enduring romance and natural beauty.

Softsoap Limited Editions Iced Kiss & Frosted Wish

The Perfect Stocking Stuffer
Softsoap Limited Editions 2017

Body washes are a form of indulgence for the ladies in our family.  With the scrubby loaded – the scents just fill the air as one watches the suds surround the skin while feeling like you’re getting a deep moisturizing cleaning.  So refreshing.  So calming. Self-indulgence for sure.

What’s even more fun with body washes is trying new scents.  Some can be invigorating, others relaxing.  This holiday-winter season, Softsoap has brought two limited edition scents to the table this year.  These are the Softsoap Limited Editions Frosted Wish and Iced Kiss.  Both scents are delightful.

The Softsoap Limited Edition Frosted Wish Moisturizing Body Wash is all about the rich scent of sweet cherry – far from being an over-powering scent while making you feel like you’re indulging.

The Softsoap Limited Edition Iced Kiss Moisturizing Body Wash lends off an invigorating peppermint scent that will remind you of good ol’ peppermint candy canes.  Not an over-powering scent – just simply refreshing.

My favorite of the two scents is the Iced Kiss scent.  I think this is because it brings me back fond memories I have as a child.  Both Limited Editions bring about lots of suds…(who doesn’t like suds? 🙂  with having to use just a little.  Plus, I love how it leaves my skin feeling silky soft.

Regardless of what my feelings are of the Softsoap Limited Editions – you may want to pick up a bottle while they’re available – they’ll be gone before you know it.

You can find these at Walmart now through March of 2018.  The suggested retail price is $2.97 (18 fl oz).  To learn more about the Softsoap brand and products, visit

Here’s a Sneak Peak:

Unleashed Synopsis

Emma, a brilliant but awkward app designer, moves to San Francisco after a massive betrayal by her boyfriend with only her beloved pets, an adorable cat and an energetic mutt, in tow. One night, drawn by the light of a Supermoon, Emma’s pets escape into the night and are transformed into full-grown men, forcing Emma to reconsider her outlook on dating and hilariously work out her trust issues.

Our Take on Unleashed

The synopsis (above) says it all.  Personally, we thought it would be funnier than it was…that’s not to say that there weren’t funny parts.  Of course, what we each see as funny – is different, so bear that in mind.  Though we weren’t quite expecting some of the suggested scenes and were okay with them – it would be wise to use viewer discretion.  All in all, the movie was worth watching and the animals brought a whole different light to the movie.

Ozeri OZH1 Dual Zone Oscillating Heater with Remote Review

Ozeri OZH1 Dual Zone Oscillating Heater with Remote Review

It’s wintertime and it’s cold in the Northeast.  It gets colder the further north you go.  Not all homes are blessed to have a heating system that fits the bill to heat the entire home, ours included.

We had a space heater – a nice space heater and when we went to use it this winter – it kept blowing fuses.  Yes, that made us a bit ugly, as the heater hadn’t been used but one winter and we couldn’t understand why it was blowing fuses this winter.  Regardless, the heater was deemed unsafe as far as we were concerned and went in the trash .

Simultaneously as that was happening, Ozeri had approached us to review a couple of their products – one being the Ozeri OZH1 Dual Zone Oscillating Heater with Remote.  The timing couldn’t have been more perfect!  It arrived packaged all tight with the box being in excellent shape.  It was a matter of putting the heater into the stand and the batteries into the remote to get the space heater up and running – extremely easy on all accounts!

Ozeri OZH1 Dual Zone Oscillating Heater with Remote Review

Protective layer of film not removed from the panel in this photo.

The perks as described by Ozeri:

  • Dual zone Oscillating ceramic heater and Tower fan engineered to provide rapid heat on a wintry night, and non-heated airflow for relief on a hot summer day, with a programmable 12-hour timer
  • Ultra thin space-saving design enhances room decor and features a touch button LED display, an extended range remote control Unit, and an elegant sturdy glass base that reduces accidental tip-over
  • Dual PTC* ceramic heating systems allow for 2 independently controllable heating zones with 2 speeds each for rapid heat distribution at 800 W (low) and 1500W (high), with overheat protection
  • Intelligent thermostat adjusts heat output according to the ambient temperature and automatically turns off when the selected temperature is Reached
  • Utilizes a new whisper quiet DC motor that transports warming and cooling air with the lowest possible noise coefficient, and includes dismountable dustproof filters for easy cleaning
  • The cord is approximately 3′ long.  (Remember – using an extension cord is not recommended with heaters and I’m sure the reason for the shorter cord length is to prevent someone tripping over the unit)

*PTC (Positive Temperature Coeffient) as defined by wikipedia: PTC ceramic elements: PTC ceramic material is named for its positive thermal coefficient of resistance (i.e., resistance increases upon heating). Most ceramics have a negative coefficient, whereas most metals have positive values

What this means to you:

  • The PTC heating elements are safer as they cool down quickly to avoid overheating.
  • They are longer lasting because they only generate the heat necessary to fulfill its pre-programed goal. Limiting overheating – means less chance for it to burn out.

Our Take

We love this space heater!  The heater is modern and sleek in design.  It takes up very little space – something we need as our rooms aren’t that large.  The control panel is easy to use.  Everything is spelled out and is easy to see (no the panel isn’t as cloudy as this image shows – this image contains the protective covering – don’t forget to peel that off). The swivel design is nice in regards that the heat can be dispersed in three directions rather than just one. The heater has dual (top and bottom) filters that are easily removable for cleaning.

Before the heater could be tested out in our main living area – the teen stole it for her room.  Her room is always on the cold side, so I gave her the honor of putting the unit to the test.  Her room is 10×12.  The Ozeri, set at 71 degrees, made the room overwhelmingly warm in my opinion.  Every time I opened the door to her room – I asked her how she could even breathe in there.  That is how well this space heater performs.

Then a week or so ago in the middle of the night the blower to the main heater to our home decided to scream like it was in intense labor.  We had to shut the furnace completely down by the emergency switch.  Being a cold night of near 0º outside, and refusing to pay what the heating company wanted for an emergency call, I pulled the Ozeri OZH1 Dual Zone Oscillating Heater out of my daughter’s room to bring to the main room of the house – approximately 400 sf of space.  I set it at 72 degrees on swivel to help maintain keeping the area from getting too cold.  The Ozeri maintained the temperature in that room at 62 degrees.  I didn’t expect the heater to keep the temp at 72° because the area has a high ceiling and is very open.  I was however impressed that the area was maintained at 62º.

The only con we found was that the cooling fan isn’t your traditional move the air/feel the air move type of fan.  You’re not going to feel air blowing out on you.

The Ozeri OZH1 Dual Zone Oscillating Heater with Remote can be purchased on
