External DVD Drive


Novapolt External DVD/CD Player

I bought my Microsoft Surface Pro 3 two years ago. The only thing I missed was a dvd player/recorder. I was very happy when I was asked to review the Novapolt DVD and CD drive. It works like a dream. Not only is it lightweight but it has the USB cord attached and neatly tucked away on the underside. I plugged it in and had no problem getting it to work. Easy, portable and amazing. No need to install any driver program. Just Plug and Play.

I love taking my laptop with me and this portable drive makes it easy to have everything with me when I need it. It will fit into my laptop case and I will hardly know I have it there.

Amzshark Cellphone Holder Stand

Love my hands free holder!

Amzshark has come up with a great idea. It is a handsfree cellphone holder stand. Clipping it onto your table and adjusting the coiled cable to just the right position makes it so easy to do what you need to with your cellphone and continue to use your hands for something else.



I personally love doing reviews. Occasionally I need to make a video while actually using a product. I have never had luck with trying this by myself. With this stand it has never been easier. I adjust the coiled cable and place it where it can record and do it by myself.

Not only do you get this cellphone stand with the clip, but you get a great little stand for your desk or table. It has a kickstand that adjusts at so many different levels that you can get your phone to that perfect point for you.

No more tired arms. They are affordable, durable and pleasing to the eye. The only holder you will ever need. Check them out at Amazon.

Liquid Savvy 18 Ounce Insulated Bottle

Liquid Savvy Insulated Bottle


As one of those persons who hate to taste the plastic on a water bottle not to mention the disposal problem, this insulated bottle was made for me. I love it. This one is 18 oz. stainless steel with three different caps to suit whatever you want to carry and how you do it.

Liquid Savvy’s insulated bottle is double-walled and has a wide mouth on it so you can use it everyday. You can take soup to work, cold water for a walk or bike ride or use up leftovers from last night. This is the perfect bottle for you. My favorite part is the three different lids. I love hooking things on my purse or backpack because my hands are always full. I have a choice with these lids. Most bottles give you one. That’s why their motto is Smarter Beveraging. Liquid Savvy has a 100% warranty. No hassles. But your won’t want to return this. It is smart in looks and functionality.

Find this on Amazon.

Bows-n-Ties Review and Giveaway


I am pleased to be able to review another beautiful tie from These are quality ties and are very easy to order. They carry ties for the average man along with extra long ties and kids ties. The variety of colors would suit any occasion and the different designers give you the choice you would want.

I received a tie in the yellow color range. Each color bring out certain feelings, thoughts and emotions in people. Yellow is a fresh and friendly color and evokes happiness in people. Shades of golden-yellow are sometimes perceived as good luck. Lighter colors of yellow look best on men with a darker complexion. While light yellow ties along with a non-white dress shirt look best on fair-skinned men.

Looney Tunes Personalized Story Book

Looney Tunes Personalized Children’s Books
I have eleven grandchildren and I am always looking for gifts for the children. I love to give personal gifts but it is not easy. All the grandchildren have different tastes and interests. So when I find a product that offers my love of reading along with personalization for the child, I have to endorse it.
One thing is for sure. All of my grandchildren love cartoons. Looney Tunes is a cartoon loved by all ages. This book is perfect. The cartoon characters come alive as your child’s name is entered into the book with personal information to help the child recognize his or her own name and friend’s names.
I ordered this book for my grandson, Jackson. He is one of five children. I haven’t been able to spend much time with him so this book was a special gift I could personalize for him. I was even able to add a dedication at the beginning of the book so that he knew that his Nonie was thinking of him.
This personalized book was well constructed and I expect it to last a long time for my three year old grandson. It is encouraging self-esteem and a love for reading that will grow with him.
Check out these books and other personalized children’s gifts at KD Novelties. They have personalized music and DVDs. The selection is large and you are sure to find that perfect gift like I did.
