John Kelly Chocolates
I really love chocolate! John Kelly Chocolates are by far one of the best Chocolatiers ever! They started out with an “out of this world” recipe for gourmet chocolate fudge, and continued to create exceptionally delicious, handmade chocolates with premium ingredients. With Valentine’s Day next month, this will absolutely be my go to place to pick up and send some chocolate love.

DRAGONN Ergonomic kneeling chair
I have no more back pain because of the DRAGONN Ergonomic kneeling chair. It’s not exactly the prettiest piece of furniture, but, that’s not its purpose… yeah, it looks weird, but it works! I’d be sitting at my desk and I’d notice that I was slouching and my head was leaning forward. I’d sit up and correct my posture only to find 5 minutes later I’d be in the same bad position. My posture was horrible and it was taking its a toll on my lower back and neck. So, I decided to try a truly different way of sitting; kneeling. The chair is comfortable, but it took a couple of days to get the hang of it. Within a week of using this chair my posture improved and my back and neck strain was gone. And it also got my abs to finally work!

TaoTronics Aluminum Alloy Desk Lamp
One of the many things that my awesome wife has taught me is to appreciate good light. Before I married her I was content with fluorescent lights and now I’m a lamp and light snob! I carefully examine lamps before I buy them. A lamp can’t just be functional. It needs to be versatile. First of all it must be the right lamp for the right job. The job we needed the most was for my son to work on his homework. High school isn’t what it use to be – our need was a lamp that could provide a variable amount of light depending on the time of day, a cool, sleek design and something that could be used at variable heights.
You guessed it the TaoTronics Desk lamp did all that and more. We love that it has 6 brightness levels, a very adjustable arm and has a very cool design! It also has three different types of light that emits in varying degrees of warmth and cool tones but my favorite feature is that it has a usb port discretely built into the base that allows my son to recharge his phone. In today’s world of high school academics, a convenient nearby location to plug in your phone is a must! Tao Tronics comes through like a champ!

Bada Bean Bada Boom Snacks
I’m a muncher. I’m snacking right now… really, I am. My friend, Kim (a real foodie), suggested I try Bada Bean Snacks and they are full of crunchy goodness! They have simple ingredients – they’re just Broad Beans that are roasted then seasoned. They are packed with protein and fiber with just 100 calories. Plus, they come in LOTS of delicious flavors. My favorite is the cocoa. Sooooo good!
