Birthday Times Review

The Birthday Rimes Review

I had the pleasure of reviewing The Birthday Times!!! I will start right off by saying how much this brought a smile to mine and my husbands face. Although it was not yet his birthday, I chose his date of birth for the review. He LOVED it!! The information written on The Birthday Times was fun and factual.  I really enjoyed the ads that were liested as well. It is so much fun going back in time, especially for the day you were born. 
What my husband doesn't know is that for his birthday I'm going to have The Birthday Times nicely framed for him with other memorabilia!!!

The Birthday Times is a wonderful gift idea for anyone!!!

The Great Uglee Pen (Ergonomic Pen) Giveaway and Review

The UgleePen (Ergonomic Pen) Giveaway and Review

I had the pleasure to review the Great UGLee Pen!! The UGLee Pen is a ergonomic pen specially designed make writing more comfortable. I personally suffer from carpal tunnel so I was very excited to try out how this pen works!! 

Here is the company information on the UGLee Pen: 
 The UGLee Pen is good for everyone who writes (even just a grocery list), and is especially helpful to people who experience pain and discomfort when writing, for example those with arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, etc.,. It's also the best writing utensil  for children who are learning to write and are developing fine motor skills, as well as helpful for special-needs children who find holding a pen or pencil properly difficult. And for high-school and college students who have to take copious notes, this pen helps keep hands and fingers from cramping.

My job title is a Legal Secretary. Which means that all day long I bang on a keyboard and then sign numerous documents for court. At times I have to wear a brace to help keep my wrist from hurting so bad. 
When I received the UGLee pen I noted the very odd design and gel grip. I really liked how it felt. 

I used the UGLee pen for a week at my office and at home. I also let one of my close friends use one for his job to see what he thought as well.
The results were unanimous.

WE both like the looks of the pen in general
The design of the pen definitely made a difference on our grip and caused less discomfort that a regular pen. 
My hands did not ache after signing multiple documents. 

 The only con we had and both agreed on was that the quality of the ink cartridge did not match the quality of the pen design. 

Overall Do I recommend this pen for everyone? Absolutely. Do I think this pen is beneficial to those who have pain or difficulty with writing? Yes I do!!!
Whats even better? Now you have a chance to win your very own set to try out!!!

One Winner will receive one three pack of pens.US residents only please!!! Deal Lovin Grandma is hosting this giveaway but the sponsor is responsible for prize shipment!
