Brooklyn Basix Umbrella Review

I received this product at a discounted rate for my honest & unbiased review. I purchased this because, well, who doesn't need an umbrella...especially living in FL?! Rainy season will be here in just a few short months, so I figured I would try this Brooklyn Basix DriRun Umbrella.
This umbrella comes in a really nice tube shaped box to keep the umbrella safe from damage when shipping. It has a nice sheath around it, as well to keep the umbrella canopy closed up. After I read the directions; I decided to try it out. It is SO easy to use...I removed the sheath (cover), un-velcroed the umbrella, and clicked the button on the handle and POP the umbrella was open. To close you just click the button again and the canopy will close, then wrap it up with the Velcro, and push it down towards the handle to lock it in place. The umbrella is very light weight and small enough to fit into a large purse or keep in the door of your car. It has a nice wide canopy when opened (about 40" across) that is not only wind & water resistant, but UV protected as well, so it provides protection from the sun.
This is a very nice umbrella for the money and the fact that it has UV protection (for me) is an added value. I would definitely recommend this umbrella to friends and family, especially here in FL. Get yours here: Brooklyn Basix Umbrella

Pinnacle Brands Luxe Rain Shower Head Review

I received this product at a discounted rate for my honest & unbiased review. I have always wanted a rain shower shower head for my bathroom, so I just had to have this Pinnacle Brands Luxe Rainfall Drenching Shower Head. When it arrived; I couldn't wait to get it installed and to use it.
It is made of plastic and has 2 different spray features the first one is the rain shower which has a TON of holes in it for the water to rain onto you; as well as a more drenching jet-like nozzle in the middle; which can be turned on/off. This is a large 8" wide shower head, so you will feel just like your standing under a soothing waterfall.
Installation was a breeze, too. After reading the directions, which you really don't need, but glad it came with them for people who might need them, I unscrewed my current shower head. All I had to do was remove the little plastic piece on the back of the shower head, by unscrewing it, and then just screwed on my new Luxe Rainfall shower head. It was literally that simple!
If you are looking for a decently priced rain shower head then I would definitely recommend this Luxe Rainfall shower head by Pinnacle Brands. It works great and feels like you are standing in the rain. It's a great way to relax after a long day. Get yours here: Rain Shower Head
