RTGS Products Micro LED 100 Light String

ScreenHunter_04 Nov. 04 12.43

With the holidays fast approaching and our proclivity in this house to really overdo it on the Christmas decorations, I couldn’t have been more thrilled when RTGS Products offered us two different versions of their LED string lights with ultra thin wires, and I couldn’t say yes fast enough. I’m glad they did, because in all my years of playing with and decorating with novelty lights, I’ve never come across a set I loved so much.

Way back when, before LED lights came to prominence, there were really only what craft stores called “rice lights”, which were tiny incandescent bulbs on a string, powered by batteries, and were a major disappointment every time we tried them. While they were neat looking, and looked somewhat decent, they dimmed quickly, were difficult to work with, and required a giant battery pack the belied their intended use of lighting smaller, delicate features. RTGS Products Micro LED Light string solves all those issues and makes decorating with their lights a dream. The wire is ultra thin, almost micro filament, so it disappears into whatever you string them on, and it’s bendable so they’ll hold the shape or direction you put them in easily. And the light! Oh, the light. So bright and clear, no “dim” bulbs on the 100 light string, and because they’re powered by a standard DC transformer, you can plug them into any wall socket and be good to go. And with 10 feet of cable from the plug to the first light, you have plenty of distance so you’re not bound to the immediate vicinity of the wall socket! With 4 inches between bulbs, you can stretch them out for a delicate lighting effect, or bunch them up for something bolder, but the choice is yours! The best part? Everything but the transformer plug is 100% water and weather proof, and 100% submersible! And because the RTGS Micro LED Lights draw very little power, they use only a fraction of the power used by a traditional light sting saving you money and being eco-friendly. And, because they’re LED, you have about a 30,000 hour/20 year life span, so you can decorate features in your house with the utmost confidence and not worry about switching out the lights every few years or replacing burned out bulbs.

As if all these other features weren’t enough, RTGS Products offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee and a whopping 2 year warranty! Talk about standing behind their products! I’m in love with these lights. I got two sets, the warm white and the cool white, and I put the warm white up right away on a topiary that came lit, but like every single “pre-lit” tree or decoration, the lights stopped working for no discernible reason withing a few months. I’d given up hope, and the RTGS Products shined a light (pardon the pun) on the possibility of lighting the things around my house I’d given up hope lighting. I can’t wait to put the cool white set up for the holidays, either. I can’t remember the last time I was excited to put up lights of any sort, but with RTGS Products Micro LED stings, I’m all giddy about lights again!

Gurin: High Accuracy Digital Bathroom Scale ACS-100 #Review #DigitalBathroomScale

Gurin High Accuracy Digital Bathroom Scale with 4.3″ Display and Step-On Technology

There is one product that everyone absolutely needs this time of year, but no one thinks about. A scale. With all the rich comfort foods, sugary desserts, and appetizers, my bikini body can go “poof” in a New York minute. And I worked very hard on it, so you better believe I’m tracking every calorie and pound. What better way to do that than with this stylish, tempered-glass digital beauty from Gurin? Why can’t a scale look snazzy too?

Retail Price Point: $23.50 via Amazon

It feels solidly built enough that I’m not terrified to step on it. Hubby either. This Gurin ACS-100 is backlit, consistent and reliable, safe for up to 400 pounds. The 4.3″ LCD Screen can be viewed from any angle, even in the dark! With “Step-On” technology it’s a cinch to operate. And best of all, it runs on AAA batteries, which, yes, thank heavens, are included.  Four precision sensors means an accurate reading the first time, and every time. We compared side by side with our previous scale that cost nearly twice as much. We got the same reading time after time.

I’m loving this new scale. And I’m loving how it looks, even if it doesn’t always deliver the news I want. Specifically, that cheesecake, pumpkin pie, and stuffing are not calorie free and as we’ve established, this Gurin ACS-100 doesn’t lie.

Start 2015 with a Gurin scale!  The scale comes with the Gurin Satisfaction Guarantee and a 2-year warranty.
