**REVIEW** Smart Weigh Digital Pro Pocket Scale

Since I have added to my diet tracking arsenal with their bathroom scale (and love it), I decided to try out this:

 The Smart Weigh folks produce this Digital Pro Pocket Scale with Tare, Hold and PCS (pieces) Functions.

It`s a (heh heh) mouthful, right? But since I'm using it to measure what I will be putting in my mouth, I can't fuss. That`s what I will be using it for, but it has other uses - such as checking mail weight, jewelry, or any other item up to 2000 grams.

My niece will want to borrow it to check mail weight (because of her business) but me - I`m strictly about the food. And, no, I don`t think I`m being obsessive. I just like the idea of being able to use this with recipes and checking on my intake of certain ingestibles. Then I have another niece who is way into baking and all kinds of ornamental food design. I have a feeling this is going to be a great gift idea for her.

Whatever you decide to use it for - business, personal, or kitchen use - the features are so useful:
  • It`s small for storage (5 x 4 x 0.6 in./ 8 oz), but efficient
  • The LCD screen is easy on the eyes
  • Has an auto shut-off that will save battery wear
  • Looks great (better even than the pic I took)
  • The stainless steel tray is easy to clean
  • Easy to use (I figured it out in a couple of seconds!)
  • Accurate, with readings from 1 tenth of a gram to 2kg
  • Reads in grams, ounces, troy ounces, pennyweight, grains and carats
  • Has a "Hold" funtion that will lock the weight reading.
My favorite feature: When you want to get the weight of something minus the container it`s in, you can use the Tare function. Coolness.

If I get outside my selfish self for a minute, I can think how useful this scale would be to small business owners, bakers and cooks, and craftspeople. Back to me: just perfect for the kitchen - where I spend so much time thinking about food... To be fair, I have a family member with special dietary restrictions, so this will be handy for her.

The fact that this has so many features, yet is still small and nice-looking isi what I really like. The design is sturdy and solid. It looks and feels very well-made. That surprised me because the price is so freaking reasonable.

The only negative to this is that I have family already wanting to borrow mine. I'm going to remind them how afforable it is to get their own.

Okay. There might be one more negative to having this scale. I mean, I don't always want to know how much that last grab of chips I scarfed down weighed out at...

Seriously? But it was just a hand full

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

**REVIEW** Africa's Best Hair Mayonnaise

My hair is pretty happy right now. Between the shampoo and conditioner that I am so in love with and this new leave-in, I feel as if I'm wearing someone else's hair. Someone else with soft, moisturized and nourished hair.

I'm a little bit ticked off. Here, I've been using all kinds of pricier potions, lotions, curl butters and creams and this four dollar and sixty-four cent product is sitting right there on the shelf. I had noticed it before but passed on trying it. I've tried other "hair mayos" and they just coated my hair with a greasy, messy slime that I couldn't wait to rinse out. Not this stuff.

I'm too freaking tired to try doing a selfie - plus the light is horrible right now - but, I'll try to describe what my hair feels like. It's soft and moist without being wet (get Prince off your brains!). I can touch my hair and not leave prints on paperwork. It's just a perfect leave-in follow-up for my new shampoo and conditioner duo. I…

The Devil Is A Liar!

That's a saying from the old folks in the church. You know, something gets on your nerves, or someone does something they ought to be ashamed of, and old Sister Hattie would proclaim, "The Devil is a liar!" ***

My mother, though, was one of those people who didn't believe in blaming everything on the Devil. She'd remind me when something didn't go the way I'd planned, the Devil had nothing to do with it. "That was you being hard-headed," she'd tell me. "Hard head makes a soft behind." Then I'd get a lecture about using more common sense when making important decisions. Once, when I got my first credit card, I bought some kind of expensive purse. Just had to have it. Couldn't live without it. It had cute initials on it and "everybody" who was "anybody" had one. Mama watched me loading all my stuff into the purse and said, "Got everything in there but money, don't ya?" About a month or two lat…

**REVIEW** Dr Miller Miracle Tea (part 2 of 3) *UPDATED

(Part One of this review is found here.)

Final Update (Hah!) *I have been granted a refund by Amazon. I think I have to print a shipping label for return, but I'm not sure because I got 2 separate emails from them. One said that my refund would be processed upon a scan of the return label, and the other indicated that they have already processed my refund. I will be checking with them for clarification. At any rate, it's cool to know that Amazon has a customer's back in cases like this. Thank you, Amazon!

Also, I have to mention that the Seller of the Miracle Tea also reached out to check on my satisfaction with the product. I'm waiting to hear further. I will upgrade my Amazon review by a star just because they at least are making an decent customer service effort.

So, I tried the tea yesterday for the first time and I'm not even going to continue with it. At least not on the 3-day schedule I initially intended.

Like I mention…
