Six Stocking Stuffer Suggestions!😊

Well, Black Friday has arrived once again.

I thought it was rather low key (based on the Amazon  Canada site) after all the sales offered earlier this week. I did place an order this morning though.😉

How is your shopping going? Are you planning to spend more or less, this year?

I’m sharing a few of my favorite items (with reviews) ideal as stocking stuffers or other small gifts.

Hope you enjoy them and find these suggestions helpful.

Andalou Circle of Light Hand Cream, Lavender Scent.

My absolute favorite hand cream!

Rich and creamy, but not greasy.

Good ingredients, reasonable price.

Lovely, natural not overpowering scent.

Available wherever Andalou products are sold.

And this line of their products supports charities that empower women and girls, around the world . 👩‍🌾 It’s all good!😊

 

Six In One Metal Tool Pen

Joe and I both ❤  these pens.

So handy and so nicely made too.

Less than $8 as of today, at Amazon.

Raincoat Peelable Nail Polish

👣 The only nail polish I use! 👣

Definitely NOT just for kids.

Comes in a wide range of colors.

A lot less “scary” ingredients, compared to regular polish.

With the top coat that they provide it stays on until you soak and peel. No remover required!

Prime of LifeYoga DVDs

I can’t imagine NOT doing yoga!

It’s been such an important part of my life, for so many years.

For anyone just starting out with yoga or perhaps, looking for a new regime, this is an excellent series to check out.

Larry Payne focuses on “the Prime of Life” age group, those 45-75. But it is great for people of all ages.

Cat Craves (cat treats)

Not to leave the felines out, this one is Mr. Cheddar approved!😸

His new favorite treat, he just ❤❤s Cat Craves.

I appreciate that they have better than average ingredients and are reasonably priced.

Available at all major pet stores including Pet Smart, Amazon and Chewys.

Jelly Belly Fruit Flavoured Snacks

A  fun snack for kids of all ages.😏

Six snack sized portions in each box.

Much better ingredients than most gummie type candies.

I ❤ the colorful packaging too.

Available at many retail and online stores.

Happy Shopping and Happy Week!😊

What’s Going On Amazon?

Has anyone else been experiencing really BAD customer service from Amazon recently?

amazon

I use the Amazon Canada site but I’m beginning to wonder if this is a company wide issue.

Delivery dates are hardly ever accurate and the representatives I’ve been emailing with recently about a variety of issues leave much to be desired. They don’t even answer the actual questions I’m asking, just some ” copy and paste” usually unrelated to the actual problems.

Even their Executive Office is slipping. That used to be a final resort that worked but even they seem to be just going through the motions now, and not serving their customers as they should.

Right now, I’m having an ongoing issue with a reseller order I placed for a laptop. I am not exaggerating, so far I have written at least 15 emails about this, LONG detailed emails, and still not resolved.

I ended up ordering another laptop from HP directly. Got a great bundle deal, including a new printer and no hassle!!

If Amazon doesn’t wise up soon, I am not going to order anything but e-books from them. THAT they can’t screw up (or so I’m hoping).

Please let me know if you are also noting a big slide in Amazon’s customer service. They aren’t the only game in town.

Mr. Bezo….Are YOU LISTENING??😕😔😪

Happy Summer and Blogging Updates!😊

I had so many hassles with my previous domain provider NAMECHEAP, that I finally gave up using the two custom domains I previously had registered with them. 

If you happen to be looking for a domain provider, avoid  NAMECHEAP!
