Oh yes you can!

I've been getting many emails asking for the contact info of some of the companies reviewed on this blog. Here's some tips:

-Whenever you see the name of the company, it is suppose to be clickable. If the link does not work, email me to let me know.

-Off to the right-hand side of the page is a list of direct links to each of the sites (as soon as I update it).

-Lots of times, I put the name, address, phone numbers and website address at the end of a write-up.

Hope this helps!

Mother Nature Has So Much To Offer.....Including Bugs!!!

Imagine being able to sit outdoors without the concern of nasty mosquitoes and additional nipping vermin. It’s not just wishful thinking…it can now be a reality with the use of ThermaCELL. What’s ThermaCELL, you ask? It’s a portable little device that uses the energy from butane to warm up a repellent mat that discharges all the right stuff into the air to make a bug want to avoid you. Approved by The Walter Reed Army Institute of Research in Washington, DC as being 98% effective, ThermaCELL is said to be safe around babies and animals while you’re participating in any outdoor activity. So I decided to put this handy appliance made by The Schawbel Corporation to the test myself.

Living around a lot of trees, my backyard is always infested with mosquitoes. All I had to do was hit the switch to have this ingenious invention start under it’s own power. Not even a battery is required. Within minutes, it was as if I was invisible to the pests without any obnoxious odors like you get when burning citronella candles and no sound could be heard with the exception of the crickets. I especially like the fact that it doesn’t touch your skin in order to provide protection and there isn’t an apparent flame. If knocked over, the lantern automatically turns itself off to avoid any mishaps. Simple to carry in a knapsack or tote bag,
ThermaCELL covers about a 15’x15’ sized area with 50 times more protection than citronella. You’ll not only love it for its effectiveness, but also because it is reasonably priced.

With a catch phrase, “Take back the outdoors”, I can see why rustic devotees honor this gadget. To view the entire list of
ThermaCELL merchandise and store locations, log on to or call them at 1-8-NO-SKEETERS.

Who needs those messy sprays and lotions…I’m hooked on

How To Get Free Publicity For Your Company

I'm in the process of putting together monthly (or more frequent) product reviews and would like to give your business some free mentions on this blog for an upcoming month.

My credentials include being the current Product Review Editor for
Skorch Magazine (a women's fashion publication), former Business Profiler for Venus Imaging Magazine and former producer for the product review segment on B101, a major radio station in Providence, RI. I also was the assistant to the Consumer Reporter of a major television network.

Each participating company is asked to send a media kit and a complimentary product or two for my review. Once I am done with that product, I usually see to it that the item(s) get passed on to a senior center, women's shelter, a school, etc. or gets raffled off to a lucky reader.

If you know of any other companies who would be interested in free publicity, feel free to tell them about me. I would love to include them.

Please be so kind as to let me know of your interest either way as soon as possible so that we can get the ball rolling. And let me know if you need any other questions answered as well.

Talk with you soon!
