I use it on our window screens to stop bugs, inside my dresser drawer when I rotate sweaters, inside clothing closets when I rotate clothes. Our windows and screens are almost bug free, but my neighbors not so. The best part is it doesn’t hurt our cat.

Firelogs are quick to start and bring the warmth and joy that can only come from an open fire. With the estimated burn time they give, it makes it easy to plan when to start your fire so it will end at the appropriate time.

I’ve really been enjoying this bag! I use as a surf and travel bag. I love that the zippered end pocket expands and is made from OR’s dry bag fabrics. After surfing, I can fit my full body wetsuit, booties, and gloves in the expandable end pocket and keep towels/dry clothes in the main compartment.

I love these sandals and just recently ordered a second pair because I’ve worn them so much since I bought them last year. When I first received them they felt slightly tight for the first day or so, but they quickly molded to my feet and have been very comfortable ever since. These are the best sandals I’ve ever owned!

As someone who likes to take their pups out to bars and on walks around the neighborhood, it is absolutely essential to wipe their feet before they come inside. These wipes are easy to use and don’t seem to irritate my dogs’ skin, despite the fact that one of them is allergic to EVERYTHING.

They have good bass and real nice mids and highs. They feel very balanced and offer really good sound for the price. Good build quality too. I play guitar for eight years now and considering that I have developed my ear for music I can really distinguish layers of sound with these.

I am, admittedly, a person who enjoys going out for coffee. That being said, the Nitro Cold Brew Lemonade is the best home coffee drink I’ve ever had. It smells amazing, it froths like the nitro cold brew in cafe locations, and it tastes great.

I really love this mascara. It isn’t clumpy and the wand it great for keeping my lashes separated. I find it works best when you start deep at the root and wiggle it all the way up. It doesn’t give you a super dramatic or fake look.

The rise of this breech is amazing. It is a mid-rise and I can honestly say that these pants stay up ALL DAY! I work full time with horses and nothing is more annoying to me than breeches that I have to keep pulling up all day! Not to mention, the fabric feels like a much more expensive breech.

The technology of this light system allows for eight plants to grow at one time. I Love the idea that the trays are compatible with the larger garden and the plants are easily tracked with the App. And just like the larger garden the app tells me when to add nutrients, when I need to add water and when to harvest. I love the look and feel this garden gives my living space.
