Delicious Wishes Gifts: Basket Review and Giveway

I received this product for the purpose of this review. All opinions states are my own and may differ from yours.
Delicious Wishes Gifts: Custom Easter Basket
Spring to me always seems like gift basket season. Between Easter, Mother's and Father's Days, Graduations, Secretary's Day (now known as Administrative Professional Day), Teacher Appreciation Day/Week, and my birthday, among other occasions, gift baskets of various sorts work great for those in a giving mood. Thanks to the generosity of the folks at Delicious Wishes Gifts, my family got to try one out, and you get the chance to win one, too.

Redwood Etched Glass Bird Feeder Giveaway

2 - Lucky Winners will each win a Bird Feeder

I recently had the pleasure to review the Mountain View Redwood Etched Glass
Bird Feeder from QMT Windchimes and was amazed at the craftsmanship
 that went into it's design. Mountain View Feeders offer the natural beauty
  of redwood in innovative designs, producing pieces that are natural yet finished,
 elegant yet functional. The redwood, which is naturally resistant to decay, is contoured
 and embossed with a unique pattern to enhance your garden. The Mountain View
 feeders are also designed for easy use--to check or clean out a feeder, simply lift the
 roof! When you are finished, put it back and apply pressure to snap it back into place.

Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder Review

I received this product for the purpose of this review. All opinions states are my own and may differ from yours.
Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder Review
Have you ever wanted to save some pictures or new music to your computer and discovered you've run out of space? When that happened on some of my older systems, I've always wondered how frequently I had the same file, or more specifically picture, duplicated, if not triplicated or worse on my hard drive. I recently had the chance to try out Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder (VSDIF) which helps you resolve just such a problem.

VSDIF will scan designated directories for duplicate images. By duplicate, the program compares actual images for similarities, not just file size and date. If it finds a duplicate, the program saves the set of duplicates to be viewed after the scanning is done, automatically checking one to delete.

Athena over at The Stuff of Success received a small package to try out. She didn't try it but you can read about her thoughts on the product below. She's the "I" below. Want to win one for yourself? Enter before the end of 4/8 for your chance, continental US only. Great item to put in a prepper package. Good luck.
Enter the LightLoad Towel Giveaway. Ends 4/8.
World renowned Lightload Towels are the only beach towels that fit in your pocket. All our towels are survival tools. Use them for so much including a firestarter, face mask, insulation,diaper and more. The towels are soft against the skin and washable. Great for packing in small places and excellent for shedding weight. 

I wanted to review this compact beach towel for when we begin camping. I haven't expanded it yet but the size is about the size of a mint tin but thicker. It is 4.5 ounces and when we are ready to use it - we will simply add water to expand it. I will have a towel for emergency situations, a beach need, survival help and more. I can't tell you how many times we have been in situations where we have needed a towel, tablecloth, blanket or something and been without one.
The towel is 36 x 60 inches ($59.99 for a 12 pack) but they also have 12 x 12 inch towel packs ($25.99 for 50) and 12 x 24 towels ($49.95 for 50).


Disclosure: The prize sponsor will send prize to the winner. The Stuff of Success and Java John Z's are not responsible for prize. If you have any question please send an email to thestuffofsuccess@gmail.com. All entries are optional, if you do any of the tasks you can collect the entries.

Mpow Wireless Bluetooth Headset
I seem to have a knack for finding different speakers to review. This time, the review is for a Bluetooth headset for your phone. I was provided with a review unit from Mpow and kicked its tires for a few weeks. Amazon titles the item Mpow® Knight Wireless Bluetooth 4.0 Headset Headphone with In-car Charging Dock Support Noise Reduction and Echo Cancellation for Iphone 5s 5c 5 4s, Galaxy Note 3 2 S4 S3 HTC One and Other Cellphones. We'll just call it the Mpow Wireless Bluetooth Headset and it sells for $34.00, though is regularly priced at $60.

Slow Road to Insanity Amazon Gift Card Giveaway

Caityln over at a Slow Road to Insanity is having a big anniversary and we're helping her celebrate with a $25 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway. Read her celebratory note first (she's the "I" below), then scroll down to enter to win. There is a second prize, too, of a bracelet. Open to US and Canada, with an ending on 4/30/14.

It truly has been a Slow Road to Insanity these last 2 years since I started up my blog. I never would have guessed that I would make it to this point, that I would be successful in doing what I do or that I would have so many wonderful fans that have kept me going up until this point. Without my fellow bloggers and certainly without the fans who've shared my blog with friends/family and who have faithfully followed me over the last two years I would have fizzled out and stopped blogging long ago.

So, to help celebrate this milestone, the two year mark of my blog and to celebrate all of my AMAZING fans I've decided to host this Fan Appreciation giveaway with the help from my wonderful Co-Hosts LifeintheLostworld and Krazy Coupon Club.
