Cozy Legs Heater

Cozy Legs Panel Heater
I don't know about you,
but I have cold feet.
Like almost always.

The dress code at work also makes it a bit hard to keep my feet warm. Dress shoes, nylons, and yes...a dress. 

Space heaters are not allowed at work so I began mentally preparing myself for a long, cold winter last fall.

One day while talking to a fellow cold-footed friend, she mentioned that we could use Cozy Legs Heaters.  She showed me hers, discreetly tucked under her desk, and explained how they worked. Who knew these wonderful inventions even existed? Boy, had I been missing out.

Cozy Legs Heaters are safer, more cost-efficient, energy-efficient, and do the trick for small spaces, especially in an office setting. Mine sits under my desk about 8 to 12 inches from my legs. It provides an even, warm, radiant heat that is just right to keep me warm, but not hot. After turning it on, I notice my feet and legs warming up in just a few minutes. I also like that it is quiet. There is no noise from a fan. love it! It was exactly what I was looking for and I no longer have cold feet at work! Halle-freakin-lujah!
Indus-Tool CLS Cozy Legs Metal Stand
To go along with the Cozy Legs Heater, this metal stand makes standing it up under your desk super easy.

Indus-Tool HI-LO High-Low-Off Power Switch Also, I found a power switch that allows you to have a High, Low, and Off setting, instead of just an on and off switch. I mounted the switch just under the edge of my desk so that I can easily adjust the settings.

I would say these heaters are ideal for under your desk either at home or at work. If you are looking to heat an entire room, you may want to look for more traditional space heaters.

To find out more about these efficient, little heaters, check out the Cozy Products website. They have other wonderful, warm products that will make your day. Great company and great people.

If you check prices online, you'll find them from about $52 to $80.
So check around and watch for deals.
I'll keep you posted on any I see.

For me the sweet deal came when work provided them for us. I guess they figured a warm, happy bunch of people were more effective and productive than a bunch of cold, miserable people. It was a wise investment for sure! So see if you can get work to buy them for you.


Amazon is oh so good to students

Amazon Student
While browsing coupons and discounts on I found a coupon through Amazon specifically for students. Well it's much more than a single coupon. Amazon has a whole portion of their site dedicated to Students and helping them to save money. Talk about a sweet deal! Where was this when I was a student a few years back? 

It's free to join. All you need is an email address that ends with .edu, the name of your school and your major.

With Amazon Student you get:
- 1 full year of FREE - 2-day Shipping with Amazon Prime
- Exclusive discounts on a variety of useful and needed college items. These are emailed to you or made available on the Amazon Student page at

I would definitely check this out if you are a student. They have discounts on computers, laptops, software, accessories, stuff for your dorm room, textbooks, and other supplies.

As a student, I saved hundreds of dollars buying my textbooks through Amazon. I refused to buy anything through the school bookstore if at all possible. (No one should have to pay that much for a math book, seriously!) With Amazon student, you may never have to get ripped off by school bookstores ever again.

Fire Hydrant Spa shower head - Low Water Pressure Shower Solution

Low water pressure sucks.
I especially hate it when showering.

As a starving student, living in sad on-campus housing or pathetic off-campus apartments, I seemed to attract housing with low water pressure. After just dealing with it for over 3 years, I finally decided I needed to do something about it. I figured that somebody must have come up with a solution. I  mean we've put man on the moon, we should be able to figure out a way to help with low water pressure showers.
Fire Hydrant Spa - Chrome

 After reading reviews on several forums, visiting local hardware stores and almost giving up, I finally found something that seemed promising. I discovered the Fire Hydrant Spa shower head made by Water Management. The name was reason enough to give me hope.

I was right. It has been everything I hoped for and more. Low water pressure is no longer an issue. I now have the strong, massaging showers that I used to only dream about. I can finally rinse my hair out completely. It is also adjustable so you can find exactly the right setting for you.

These shower heads are worth their weight in gold. As a student, I bought this as an investment and I have not been sorry. That's been 3 years ago and it's still one of the best purchases I've ever made. My morning showers are now my favorite part of the day, where I used to hate them before. I take it with me each time I move to a new place.

I bought it online through Water Management's website.
Prices for this model range from $39.50 to $48.50.

So if you are tired of low pressure showers and want to do something about it, please check them out. You won't be disappointed. If you have questions, feel free to send them a note. They are great to work with and are some of the nicest people you'll ever meet. Happy Showering!


My iPhone 4 Speck Case

Darkest Tartan Plaid
I recently bought an iPhone 4. 
I gave in to peer pressure and bought my first smart phone. 
So far, I like it. 
A lot.

Since I paid more for this phone than any other phone in my mobile phone owning history, I was incredibly paranoid about dropping it and having the screen shatter. I feel like this was a valid concern. So I looked long and hard for a case even before I bought the phone. 

After readings tons of reviews, going to stores to touch and test drive different cases, I decided on Speck. This snazzy, black and grey plaid case from Speck Products is not only visually appealing, but it's a tough, little case. How do I know? Well I've dropped it at least a dozen times in the past 5 months and my iPhone and screen are still fine. Phew!

This particular style is about $10 through Amazon. If you want to check out some of the other fun colors and designs in this same case, check out Speck's site. The newer designs are about $29.95. 

This is a thin, durable, stylish iPhone case. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Tazo Passion Herbal Tea

This tea rocks my world.
Never in my life have I enjoyed any type of tea.
It's too watery. It's funky tasting.
You have to add butt loads of sugar or honey just to choke it down to be polite.

One day not long ago, a friend of mine convinced me to try Tazo Passion Herbal tea. I have to say I was hesitant, but to be a good friend, I gave in.

One sip was all it took and I was pleasantly surprised and forever converted. I didn't have to add any sugary substance to make it tolerable. The flavor is strong enough that it doesn't taste watery. (Please note that the full leaf is not as strong as the filter bags.)

It lists hibiscus, lemongrass, rose hips, mango & passion fruit flavors as ingredients. Since I enjoy things on the fruity side, this was perfect. Tazo's site gives this description for it's taste, "Berry, juicy, wine-like, merlot, sweet, and earthy dense."

This is now my drink of choice whenever I feel like something besides water. I've used it to soothe sore throats and bad days. It's good on rainy days, snowy days, and if you can stand the heat, sunny days.

I have found that I can buy it at the lowest price at my local Target. Amazon sells it by the box or in bulk. Starbucks also carries it, but be prepared to pay just a bit more. But's so good it's worth it to splurge.

Endometriosis and ThermaCare

Two years ago I underwent surgery to remove an ovarian cyst that had grown to the size of a large grapefruit. During the surgery, the doctors confirmed that I had endometriosis. I was clueless about what that meant. All I knew was that I had/have very painful periods.

After a bit a research on WebMD and talking to my doctor I realized that there is no cure, only treatments. One thing I have found that has helped with the painful and debilitating cramps I seem to get two weeks out of the  month, are the ThermaCare Menstrual patches.

A friend recommended them to me a few years back and they have changed my world. I used to miss work a few days each month because I would be doubled over in pain, unable to move. The ThermaCare patches are discreet and easy to wear. Once side sticks to the inside of your underwear and the side with the heat rest against your skin. They last for 8 to 12 hours and provide constant, soothing heat that makes it so I can function during the day and sleep at night.

You can find them on, at most Walmarts and other grocery stores. They are a bit pricey, but so worth it. There are 3 patches in a box and inside you will find a coupon for next time. There is a printable $3 off coupon found on ThermaCare's website.

I recommend these to all my friends who have painful periods. I hope someone will find this helpful and that these will provide the relief that is needed.
