Oh my one month left until Christmas. Where has the year gone. I've been doing a lot of work with Amazon sellers these past few weeks and over this time I have come to love Amazon even more. A few weeks ago I went to Target to start my Christmas shopping and looking for advent calender's for the kids. I found a Mega Blok Teenage Mutant Turtle advent calendar on-line at Target and wanted to take advantage of the cartwheel discount. Sadly, Target did not have what I wanted, can home checked Amazon.com and found it for $10.00 less, plus they had a coupon code for it. Target 0 Amazon-1. Since then I have spent more time browsing Amazon and found more great deals. You can never go wrong with an Amazon.com gift card.
Black Friday, while everyone has been out shopping, I stayed home and avoided the rush of people. While most people started Thursday, Amazon.com runs their Black Friday specials a few days, giving buyers extra time to stock up on hot items.

Being born in March I received the Swarovski elements Aquamarine crystal charm which symbolizes "Generous". The Birthstone Necklace Swarovski Elements Crystal Teardrop Jewelry comes in an elegant box which requires no gift wrapping. The stone was much bigger than I thought it would be, yet, not overly to big to make the necklace look un-preportioned from the rest of the charms. The length of the chain is not very long but would easily be seen wearing a V-cut neckline. Cleaning the charms are very easy and I took the suggestion of the seller to clean with baby wipes and dry with a clean cloth which also helps keep the charms shine.
These necklaces would make very cute gifts for any woman or even a child for any given holiday and could be worn all year round. While the link below shows the March birthstone, any month can be purchased for the same price.

“Sprout” Decorative Paper Towel Holder & Toilet Paper Holder by Comfify - Vertical Countertop Paper Towel Stand or Toilet Roll Stand, Toilet paper storage- Review
I received this item for free for my honest opinion.
First off, I love this holder. The “Sprout” Decorative Paper Towel Holder & Toilet Paper Holder by Comfify, is a vertical counter-top paper towel stand, used as a toilet roll stand, or be used for toilet paper storage. I found this item to be cute for the kitchen because of the "sprout" design. This item also comes in blue and red, but I find the green to be more suitable for the kitchen. Plus it is super easy to move outside for BBQ and you would not have to worry about napkins blowing away.
The base on the vertical paper towel holder is heavy enough to stay stationed, plus the base makes it easy to grab 'n' tear paper towel sheets without tipping. Rubber foot provides no-slip grip that prevents accidents. This product stands 11.75” high x 6” which is a space saver, and weighs 1.6 lbs. The “Sprout” design is efficiently engineered to prevent accidental unrolling, keeps paper towels and toilet paper tidy and manageable.
The top of the "sprout" helps hold the paper towel roll into place. To put the roll on just pinch the top sprouts together and place roll over and your done. I think the “Sprout” would make a really cute and unique housewarming gift, or bridle gift and definitely be one of a kind.

Vbiger Balaclava Ski Mask Windproof Thicken Winter Hat Fleece Full Face Cover for Men & Women- Review
I did receive this item free of charge for my honest opinion.
A few years ago my dad bought a hat similar to this one (different color), and I remember him wearing it through most of winter, so when I was given a chance to review one, I was like hell yeah. I drive 30 miles to school. In the winter it seems even if I leave early I do not get there early enough to park in the parking lot closest to the building. Leaving me to park in the next parking lot over and walk through a trail. It takes maybe three minutes to get there, but when it's cold it sometimes feels like an eternity.
TheVbiger Balaclava Ski Mask Windproof Thicken Winter Hat Fleece Full Face Cover for Men & Women is definitely warm. I put it on in the house which is 65 degrees and I was sweating. Walked outside where the cold wind has now picked up in New York and I was surprised how the wind did not cut through the fabric. Instead I stayed very warm. I love how the ski mask not only covers my ears, but also my mouth and nose.
Once you put the ski mask on your able to tuck it under your coat and keep your neck warm as well.
The mask comes with adjustable sides in order to make it tighter, which are very easy to use.
The Vbiger Balaclava Ski Mask Windproof Thicken Winter Hat Fleece Full Face Cover for Men & Women is very well made ski mask which definitely will keep out the cold and keep you warm. I would recommend this hat if you work outside, attend outdoor events, or participate in outdoor sports. It's comfortable to wear, warm, soft and keeps out the wind.
Currently YoungKer has this item listed on Amazon for $10.49 and free shipping for Prime members. It is definitely worth the price plus it come in four different colors.
Dream Catcher Lava Rock Turquoise Matte Agate Jasper Mens Womens Bracelet Energy Beads Silver Plated Head- Review
I received these Dream Catcher Lava Rock Bracelets at a discount for my honest opinion.
When I first ordered these bracelets I figured they would be very light and assumable some sort of plastic. I was very surprised to find the weight of them were much heavier and actually made from stone, than originally predicted. The Dream Catcher Lava Rock Bracelets are made of quality nature stone which comes from nature, and are very comfortable to wear.
Each of the two Dream Catcher bracelets comes with a silver plated animal head. Here you can see the owl and what I believe is a fox. The designs are simple, classic and yet fashionable and elegant.
Because the stones are natural, no two bracelets look the same. While my fox bracelet seems to use marble looking stones with many color interactions, and the owl one is made from smoother rock with less color interactions.
The bracelets measure about 7.1 inches and are not adjustable, however, they are made with a very strong elastic, making putting them on and taking them off very easy.
With any jewelry, I would suggest taking off before showering or swimming in order to preserve the life of your jewelry. Seeing these pieces are made with an elastic band, chemicals in your water could damage the elastic over time causing them to break.
Currently on Amazon you can buy these as a set for $9.75 with free Prime shipping or buy each piece separate for $3.14 plus $4.85 shipping with a promised 90-day Products Guarantee from Dream Catcher Fashion.

iTimo 360° Rotatable Wireless Motion& Light Sensor Wall Light Led Lamp For Indoor Night Lighting- Review
I received this iTimo 360° Rotatable Wireless Motion& Light Sensor Wall Light Led Lamp For Indoor Night Lighting at a discount for an honest review.
The first day I opened this, I felt I had nothing but problems trying to get this to work. I turned it on and it sat here all day not turning off. After talking to a few other bloggers, I found I was not the only one who had this problem. It was not until the next morning when I woke up to find it was off, I just assumed that it died as I did not charge it very long. Walked by it and found I was not only wrong, but being blinded as well. Two days later it seems to still work the way it was intended to.
The iTimo 360° has a USB charger to charge. I charged it for 15 mins and two days later still going strong. The light can be turned on the base 360° and can also be removed as it is magnetic. While the base does come off, I found it useful to stick to the wall, as the light comes with a highly sticky backing which can stick to a wall. This light can be used both inside and outside as a motion detector. I found it worked great in my hallway for the kids. When they get close to it the light comes on and stays on long enough for them to get to the light switch to turn the light on. Other bloggers are using it in their children's closet.
While this light serves as a motion detector, it can also be used as a night light.
While I did get a discount on this product, it is sold on Amazon.com for $13.99 with free shipping with Prime, which is a great deal.
