Ergonomic Pen Giveaway: UGLee Pen

EDIT:
We have a winner for the UGLee Pen giveaway! Congratulations to Michelle from California, and thank you to everyone who entered!


Remember how much writing you did in school? Even with everyone having iPads and laptops, you probably find yourself bringing a pen to office meetings or class and after a while, your hand hurts. I was an art history major, so you can imagine there was a LOT of writing going on. Even though I tried to use my laptop in grad school as much as possible, I still went through a ton of notebooks and sore hands.

Stanford educated physician, Dr. James Lee, developed an ergonomic pen to help people who have to write a lot (even those who don't do much writing may want to try it). If you suffer from carpal tunnel or arthritis, or have trouble holding a traditional pen, the unique soft grip of the UGLee Pen may make writing easier.


I received a set of pens to try, letting my husband use one and a good friend try another. If you're curious to see what it was like for me to try UGLee Pen, check out my UGLee Pen review video on YouTube.

Overall, I LOVE the ink flow and thickness. I'm very, very picky about that. However, I'm less inclined to want to use it for writing and drawing because I need to have a firm grip to write and draw detailed lines. The comfort grip is squishy, so I had a hard time making neat letters. That said, I do keep one in my purse and have used it quite a bit for writing shopping lists and jotting quick notes.

Pottery Barn Kids Lunch Bags: Cute, but Annoying

When my daughter transitioned to "big kid school" this fall, I bought her a personalized lunch bag from Pottery Barn Kids. This was our first time having to send lunch to school, so I wanted her to enjoy carrying the bag and also have it be practical. She's just turning 4, so it was important that she be able to open the bag herself and carry it from the car to the lunch cart without assistance.

Pottery Barn Kids offers a slew of fabric patterns and four bag styles. Penny picked the MacKenzie Chocolate Zebra classic lunch bag, which is a fairly standard size and shape lunch box. We paid $7 to have her name embroidered on the bag, which I figured was worth the price to ensure her box isn't mixed up with another kid's lunch. I let Penny pick the font and thread color and ordered online.

Our classic lunch bag has now been used every weekday for nearly three months, but it looks more like a year old. It's still functional in that Penny can carry it in to school, o…

Switching from Olay Regenerist to L'Oreal RevitaLift

I've been using Olay Regenerist DNA Superstructure UV Cream for years now. I love the SPF 25 (it's now 30) the thick moisturizing quality, and how fresh my skin feels once it's absorbed. It's really thick, so it tends to need more time before I put on foundation, and it does leave my skin a touch lighter than it is in real life. The sunscreen ingredients mean this moisturizer smells just like traditional sun protection, and even a bit like my daughter's diaper cream (ick), but I know it's doing it's job and I've been really happy with it.


I intended to buy some more during a trip to Walmart today, but L'Oreal RevitaLift Triple Power Day Lotion had a $2 off coupon attached, and the base price was less than the Olay product, so I took a chance and bought  the RevitaLift instead.


L'Oreal's bottle is prettier with a similar pump mechanism. Like Olay, the product is in an opaque container, which helps keep the contents from being affected by ligh…

eSalon.com Hair Color Review

It's now May 2014 and since my original review, I've had a chance to fly out to eSalon and see how orders are processed, learn the right way to apply color, and find out the differences between box color and eSalon color. I learned a lot and have a totally different perspective now and would definitely recommend giving eSalon a try.

When you order from eSalon, be sure to upload a current, well-lit photo of your hair and don't hesitate to ask their color experts for advice. The eSalon team are experts. Let them help you find the right shade and apply color correctly. It's a learning process if you're used to box color products.

Last August, I tried eSalon. At the time, I found the color was fine in that it was even and matched what I had seen online for that shade, but it wasn't really what I was going for. eSalon's customer service was helpful, with a colorist calling to explain how their product differs from what I buy in-store and the risks of going darke…
