I truly love my French press. I recently became interested in brewing my own cold brew coffee and I was about to try to do so using mason jars when I found this. It is lovely and incredibly useful. I wasn’t sure what to expect because it’s such a simple design and only has a few parts… I had expected it to be more complicated to use. Since I had never used one before, I was also concerned that it would be challenging to figure it out, but it was all very easy.
When I make my cold brewed coffee, I measure the coffee out and pour it into the bottom and add water on top, up to the silver line (I try to do 1 part coffee, 8 parts water). Then I place the top back on and gently stir the water and coffee together with the part of the press that is inserted into the mix (I don’t know if you’re supposed to do that, but I do it anyway). Then store it in my refrigerator for 12-24 hours. After that, I remove the top and screw the filter mechanism onto the stirrer thing and then slowly pump it down into the coffee once or twice. Then I just pour my coffee into a container and the filter at the bottom ensures that I do not get any grounds in my drink.
The French press is incredibly easy to use and I would highly recommend it to all coffee and tea enthusiasts. Another great thing is the durability of this press. You can just feel that it is well-made and no parts of it are flimsy or feel like they are going to break any time soon.

I purchased this phone case for my Samsung Note 5 and it has worked pretty well for me. It fits snugly onto my phone and provides an extra layer of protection, which is great because I tend to drop my phone a lot. The bumpers are nice because when a phone hits the ground hard it can be devastating, especially if it falls directly onto one of the corners. This protects the phone well and I don’t worry much when I drop it because I know it’s safe.
I purchased this case in black (color 1) and it looks nice. The other colors are flashy but I like the understated black case. It does add some extra bulk to my phone and makes the already large device a little more challenging to hold with one hand, but I got used to it. One thing that I don’t like is that the kickstand doesn’t work very well. First of all, it is kind of difficult to pull it out when you don’t have fingernails. Second, it doesn’t lock into place so if you move your phone, you’ll have to reposition the kickstand too. Neither of these are exactly deal-breakers for me and, considering how well protected my phone is with the case, I will still be using it. I recommend this to all Samsung Galaxy Note 5 users.

Pet Prime Dog & Cat Grooming Glove Brush – Deshedding & Massaging Tool For Long & Short Hair Pets by Pet Prime
I love this cat grooming brush! My parents had something similar when I was growing up and it really helped with their long-haired cats so I was eager to try one myself. I have four adult cats and sometimes the shedding gets out of hand. They do not like traditional brushes so it’s difficult to groom them, especially since they still have their claws and they see the brush as their enemy!
To use this glove/brush, I just put it over my hand and secure it with the velcro around my wrist. I normally start out petting my cats with my ungloved hand just so they do not see an unknown object coming toward them and get scared. After a few strokes, I switch hands and they don’t even notice. I think they actually like the sensation.
The glove removes a TON of hair, and does so gently. I feel good about the way that this glove helps me remove my cat’s excess hair and saves them from extra hairballs from grooming themselves when they have that much shedding. I highly recommend this grooming glove to anyone with cats because it is truly awesome! I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for an honest review.

I love Washi tape so much! I use them for scrapbooking and other crafting projects. Recently I started creating my own planners and I’ve been using my Washi tape as borders for each page. It looks gorgeous. These designs are so cute and fun, I can’t get enough of them! This is a set of 12 different designs so it is especially nice if you are creating a themed planner because there is one design for each month! Designs include chevron patters, stripes, stars, and more. The adhesive sticks to paper very well, even on the outside covers of my planner, which brush against a lot of things in my backpack to that is especially impressive.

I would highly recommend this set to anyone who scrapbooks or does other DIY projects because it creates are gorgeous, clean cut border every time.

I love rice but I am a lazy person sometimes. Cooking is just not an activity that I enjoy. Therefore, I am glad that I found this pre-cooked rice by Nohju. All I have to do it heat it up for two minutes and it’s done! That’s literally all there is to it. I served mine under stuffed green peppers and it was so delicious. Next time, I plan to incorporate this rice into the recipe and stuff it into the peppers while they cook.
The rice was really moist. I wasn’t sure what to expect because I had never eaten rice that had been cooked and packaged, but it cooked evenly and perfectly. I love the it comes in a 3 pack because it will make multiple meals for me. I am also very thankful that it is so easy to cook because, as I mentioned, I am not a fan of cooking.
The tray is microwavable which is excellent because I don’t have to dirty extra dishes in order to cook the rice. You could probably even eat it right out of the container after microwaving if you’d like. The calories, fat, etc. are listed both on the container and in the description so you know the content of your food. This is important to me because I track my food intake daily. I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves rice or does any kind of cooking with rice. I will definitely be purchasing this again in the future because it tastes good and makes my life easy!
