Non-Contact Infrared Thermometer Review + Video


We get to turn our clocks back tonight!  One extra hour of sleep.  Yeh, right!  I don't know why, but each time we  "fall back"  or "spring forward", it messes with my sleep for about 3 days.  

Well, that has nothing to do with my review.  :)

Today we are reviewing a non-contact infrared thermometer.
It is capable of measuring body temp, surface temp and room temp.
One has the option of C of F degrees.
It is quite easy to operate and batteries are included.

It also comes with a bag to keep it in.  

This is great to use when one has sick family members, because the thermometer doesn't actually have to touch the individual, so there is less chance of spreading germs.

Watch the video for more info on how easy this is to use.  :)

Non-Contact Infrared Thermometer  may be purchased on Amazon.

Travel Security Kit + MY personal travel experience!


Welcome to another review from Dragonfly Tales.

I can tell you this product would have came in sooooo handy when I traveled to South America.

I recommend having this handy product anytime one travels, but especially when traveling outside your own country.  If you have never traveled internationally, trust me you have a lot of paper work you need to have available.

While traveling on a bus in SA, they had these "bus/people checks."  During these "checks" everyone has to get off the bus and may be asked to show their paperwork.  If you... "look very different"... from everyone else on the bus, chances are good you will be the one digging through your purse trying to find what they want to see. (I speak from experience!)   HAAA!  And, what a nerve wracking experience it was!

Next time, everything is going to be in this passport holder and I will feel a lot less stressed.  Probably the "checkers"  and other bus passengers will be less stressed too!  They want to "git 'er done" ASAP!   Blahaha!  And, yes I WAS always the hold up!  (It makes me giggle even now while writing this.)  Wellllll.... they were speaking to me in Spanish, and I no hablo espanol!  :)

The passport holder has an adjustable strap, making it easy to carry this as a cross-body, or just around ones neck.  Even if one doesn't want to actually wear it, it is great for keeping everything organized.  I keep my passport in it even just at the house so I will know where it is.  

The money belt has two zippered compartments to keep currency separated or one could put other small papers, such as receipts in it.

The long tabs on the zipper pulls makes opening the zippers easy.  Especially for those that might have painful hands from arthritis or other ailments.

Do yourself ... and the "checkers".... a favor and order this today.  :)

Be the talk of the party with this LED Flashlight Bottle Koozie!


I hope today finds you well and happy!

Today, we are reviewing an LED Flashlight Bottle Koozie.  Yes, you read that right; a koozie that shines a light up through your bottle!

company photo

Aren't these just the neatest thing since the disco ball?  Haaaa!

These are a great conversation starter.  If you are at a party with one of these babies, people are sure to ask you where you got it.
You could make new friends just by having one of these!  :)

They have an insert for smaller bottles, or it can be removed for larger sized bottles.

The koozie comes in a cute carrying case, and a little flashlight is also included.  How much more could a person ask for in a koozie?

Oh, yeh did I mention they also have an option of having a flashing light too?  Well,  they do!

They are available in different colors too!





Just click on the color you would like and it will take you to the Amazon page.  Batteries are included.

Wishing you much Love and Happiness!

Hello to all my cyber land friends and followers!

Whew, we are really churning out the reviews here on Dragonfly Tales.  Our blog continues to grow and therefore receives many great products for your viewing pleasure.  So, be sure and follow along by clicking the follow buttons on the side bar.  Thank you ever so much!

We recently received this useful outdoor blanket from Pratico Outdoors.

It is water and wind proof.  It measures 48x58 inches, so it is just right for one person.  The inner side is made of polar fleece and is very soft.  In my opinion fleece is the ultimate blanket material.

It comes in a nice carrying bag, and is very compact.  I recommend keeping one of these in your car, especially during the winter months, because one just never knows when they may get stranded due to bad weather or car problems and this blanket would help with warmth.  Also, one could make this part of their emergency preparedness kit.  

If you have family members that attend sporting events, this would make them a great gift.  Nothing says "I love you" like a blankie!  :)

I made a short video that shows other features of this blanket.  And, yes I did say flannel instead of fleece, thanks for noticing.  doh!

Waterproof Blanket may be purchased on Amazon.

Relief for Painful Hands and Feet with NatraCure

There are just some things that most of us have in common.  

Many have painful, burning feet.  This can be caused by several different factors.  Wearing ill fitting shoes, standing or walking for long periods of time, diabetes, arthritis, neuropathy and the list goes on.

I have trouble with my right foot swelling since I broke my lower leg.  

NatraCure to the rescue!  Introducing NatraCure Cold Therapy Socks

I find these to be comfortable and helpful.  Although the package insert says the gel packs can be used hot or cold,  I do keep mine in the freezer, because I like the cold feeling best.  I keep the gel inserts in the socks and keep them in a freezer bag.  I think keeping them in a freezer bag helps prevent freezer odors, but that's  just me.  :)

On the left I  showed the gel packs removed from the sock.  One can see from the right side that the smaller pack inserts into a pocket on top of the foot, the bigger pack fits in the bottom part of the sock.  

Do not walk while wearing these.  It only makes sense that putting that much pressure on a gel pack could cause it to rupture.

Also, when using these cold, remember the recommended time for frozen gel packs on any area is 20 minutes at a time.

Now, my hands being cold; well that's a different story.  If my hands are cold, I feel miserable.  And my finger joints hurt worse-er  :)

I keep my thermostat low in the winter; my hands get cold.
Before receiving the Arthritis Mittens from NatraCure I would wrap my hands in a heating pad when I went to bed.  That was so not comfortable.

These mittens have a Smart Gel lining that also moisturizes ones hands while warming them.

The mitten on the right is turned inside out to show the gel lining.
The star burst design turns red when they have been warmed enough in the microwave.  

                They have an adjustable velcro wrist closure.  

Now, these are bulky, so don't be thinking you're going to be doing any housework while wearing them!  ha!

Both of these products promote pain relief and just the quiet time to wear them and relax makes a big difference.

Have your own spa night every night; right in your very own home.

Wishing Much Love and Happiness to you All!

50 Pack Aromatherapy Essential Oil Bottles

I hope today finds you well.  Things are going good here.  We have loads of great products coming up, so follow along!

My daughter is a consultant for an essential oil company.  Therefore, the whole family has loads of essential oils and sometimes we want to share.  

These bottles make that easy!  One gets 25 2 oz. and 25 3 oz. glass bottles with the dropper top insert and lid.

We get together once a month at Brandi's home for a make it-take it class.  These bottles are great for giving a sample to a friend, or getting a sample from a friend!

Aromatherapy Essential Oil Bottles may be purchased on Amazon.  Be sure and add them to your wish list!

Sometimes you just want to be alone with your computer!


How are you today?  We are doing awesome!  Dragonfly Tales has several great products coming up for review, so be sure to follow along.

Today, we are reviewing BVS Solitaire Collection for a PC, tablet or mobile.  

I was not aware there were so many solitaire card games.  This program has all your favorite solitaire games, plus some that I bet you haven't heard of.  Some are easy, some are difficult.  But, all the ones I have played are fun and can be addictive!

I am really impressed with the quality look of this game.  It has great image quality, and many, many options to choose from.  One can change the look of the cards, the back ground color, if you want hints or not.  

The below pictures look a little wonky, because I was taking a picture of my computer screen, but it will give ya an idea what things are about.  :)

Also, the list of games lets you know what level of skill it is.  So when you are wanting a challenging game, go for the difficult, when you want a mindless activity, choose easy.

Installation of the game was simple and fast.

Here are a couple company photos that are clearer.

I am impressed with this game, I think you will be too!

BVS Solitaire Collection may be purchased on their website.

 Follow BVS  and Dragonfly Tales on Facebook.  Because, it's nice!

Floldable Adjustable Lapdesk/ Laptop Table Stand Review


I appreciate you being here!  Be sure and click the follow buttons on the side bar.  Thank you ever so much!

Today we are reviewing  a..... you guessed it!  A laptop/tablet stand.

This stand has many great features.  It conveniently closes in to, making it easy to carry along.  Also,  this would work great in the car.

When it is opened, it MAY be too wide for some chairs.  But, one does not have to use it with the legs down.  Depending on where I am using it, I sometimes just sit it on my lap.

There are a lot of features packed into this desk.  The legs are adjustable to several different lengths, there is a mouse pad, and cup holder (just say No! haa!)  There is also a USB port and adapter that runs a fan on the desk to keep your laptop cooled down.  Why do they put the vents on the bottom of a computer anyway??  I have one with the vent on the side, that makes more sense.  But, when I use my laptop with the vent on the bottom, the fan comes in handy.

company photos

There are a few things I would like to see changed with this desk.  There is no way to lock it to stay open; meaning when there is no laptop on it and one picks it up it folds down the middle.  Also, I haven't found a way to keep the legs folded up when I want to use it flat, so when I pick it up and legs drop down.  These are minor changes I would like to see.  I still enjoy using it, and like it better than I thought I would.  

I use this desk almost everyday.  It is very lightweight.  I feel it is a good investment.

Professional Mouth Blown, Hand Painted Wine Glasses Review


I hope life is treating you kind.  We have had a little chaos this past week, but things have evened out now.  So, keep your chin up, things have a way of turning around!

Have you joined  the "drink wine for your health" group?  Or maybe just like to enjoy a glass of wine occasionally?  Well, it doesn't matter which group you belong too, these stunning wine glasses are sure to make your wine experience feel like you are livin' the life of luxury!    :)

These are mouth blown, hand painted and designed in Paris, no less!  

company photo

These glasses come in a set of two.  They would be great for any gift occasion.  Or, keep one for yourself and give one to your bestie, so you can share a glass of wine in your special glass, even if you can't be together!

Customer service is great; they are very interested in putting out a great product.  

Although my cell doesn't show the lovely colors, I did want you to see the size difference in these glasses and a regular wine glass.

Big difference, huh?  

Remember that "a glass" of wine is 4-5 ounces of wine.  Drink responsibly and don't drive (or Text!)  ha!

Wine Glasses  may be purchased on Amazon.  Because of the high demand for these, should they be out of stock, add them to your wishlist!

Wishing much love and Happiness to you ALL!
