I used to leave my smartphone at home while power walking. But when I tripped and injured my ankle, I felt so helpless and had to wait for someone to pass by to ask for help. Since then, I made sure I always have my phone with me, even if I had to hold it my hand when walking. It’s a good thing the FlipBelt was invented and I feel so lucky that I will be reviewing it.

Product Description

FlipBelt – Sleek. Balanced. Fashionably functional. This tubular belt holds your phone, energy gels, keys and money during your workout without the annoying bouncing, chafing or riding up.

My Thoughts

The belt is very light and the material used to make it is very soft. It’s so cool that the whole belt is the pocket! It has four openings where you can easily insert your phone, keys, money and even credit cards. It’s so convenient because you simply pull it on like a pair of pants and place it over or under your clothes. It doesn’t look bulky and it doesn’t feel heavy at all. I also tried connecting my earphones, so I can listen to music while walking and it also worked. I love, love this flipbelt!

Never stuff your leggings or sports bras again with your necessities while exercising, the FlipBelt can carry all those little things for you. I highly recommend this.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the FlipBelt  through the website. It’s fairly priced at $28.99.

If you are confused about which microphone to choose, allow me to make a suggestion. My family has been in the videoke business for quite some time and we’ve always trusted the brand Shure. People tend to drop the mic, especially when they had a few rounds of alcohol. Shure microphones don’t break easily and the sound quality is impressive. If you want something that’s durable and lasts a long time, check the mics from this brand.

Wouldn’t it be nice to still be in contact even while you exercise? Or perhaps listen to music while you walk or run to encourage you more? I walk 3 to 4 miles, three times a week and it always encourages me more when I’m listening to music. Today’s review is about the Kobert Exercise Armband.

My Thoughts

I like the overall look of the armband. It is lightweight and it features a silver reflective frame for your safety while on the road. It fits most smartphones. I tried putting in my iPhone 5 and hooked up my earphones. It was perfect! I was also able to access my messages through the transparent front covering and easily answered my calls through the earphone. The armband is easy to put on and I felt comfortable wearing it. I like that it has an extra pocket to put my key and some money, a very convenient feature since most exercise outfits don’t have pockets.

So far, I am enjoying using it during my power walks. It makes me feel good that my phone is well protected and that I’m still connected even while getting fit. I highly recommend this.

Spending 10 to 12 hours in front of the computer, writing articles, used to be so boring. But I had to do it because that’s my line of work. Then one time I had the opportunity to write about an online game website. I found out that you can actually play games for fun and win real money for beer or for real estate. All the while I thought that you have to be a serious gambler to be able to play on these sites. I also thought that you have to make a deposit to be able to play, I was surprised to know that there is no deposit bonus needed to play. And all the while I thought that you either have to be lucky or you need to be an expert to be able to win or you will always end up losing money in casinos. I grew up with those notions because my grandfather used to gamble a lot. They were well off, but he ended up losing everything because of gambling.

That is why I was very surprised when I learned how game sites operates. With the $50 that you get from the no deposit bonus codes, you can already play your favorite games and cash out your winnings. So, if you’re really lucky that night and you’ve won, you’ll have real cash without even shelling out some from your pocket.

While we were taught never to gamble, my siblings and I are pretty much familiar with some card games. We used to play cards at home and we would bet on some money, too. The winner usually ended up treating the losers either to a movie or pizza, so none of us really loses. Whenever I get too bored at writing, I take a break and take advantage of the no deposit casino bonus codes and play online games for fun. At these game sites I win some, but I never really lost. Just as long as you know your limits, I don’t see why anyone can’t have fun playing games online.

Now that I’m approaching late forties, I am starting to feel a slight pain in my left knee. I am overweight, yes, but it’s probably because of bowling, too. I’ve been bowling for years and my left knee takes the weight of my body when I slide. Although I use a special knee brace when bowling, there are times when I am not bowling that I feel that slight ache in my left knee. I normally just ignore it since it’s not too painful. Then I was given the opportunity to review the Bamboo Pro™ Self-Warming Knee Support by The Healing Tree.

Product Description

Natural Warmth Helps Improve:
– Blood Circulation

– Achy joints due to aging
– Inflammation after workouts

– Fatigue
– Discomfort
– Recovery

My Thoughts

The materials used to make the knee brace is soft and by the looks of it, they are of high quality. It fits perfectly and I was pretty comfortable in it. It is definitely warming and it soothes the pain. I was pleasantly surprised that even after wearing the knee brace for hours, it didn’t irritate my skin. I usually feel itchiness and irritation when I sweat from wearing a knee brace for a long time.

Overall, I had a great experience with the warming bamboo knee brace. It definitely soothed the ache in my knee and I love the warm feeling that I get from it. I highly recommend this.
