Just so you know

Just so you know, while there will be mention of adult products, I'm not going to go into graphic details about anything. Even still, I realize that not everybody wants to read about adult products, so those will have a disclaimer at the top of each post :)

Fleece Leggings

I'm here today to tell you about the awesomeness that is fleece leggings.  Similar to most leggings you might find out there for fashion purposes, these just happen to be fleece lined, which makes them slightly more plush, slightly warmer, and slightly less see-through.

I really love the warmth factor personally.  Delivering car parts in the winter can get really chilly, and I spend mid-November to about mid-April wearing some sort of thermal leggings underneath my jeans. (At least I did last year, this year I hope to only be wearing them for fashion purposes).  Even underneath jeans with holes in them and it being a whopping 10 degrees outside, my legs could feel that it was cold, but not really feel cold themselves.  They also fit comfortably underneath jeans, which is amazing in and of itself.  You might not be able to get away with anything skin tight, but relatively tight jeans should still be relatively comfortable.

Now I know I can't speak for all fleece leggings with most of the rest of this here, since the ones I'm ranting about came from Charlotte Rousse, and I know they won't fit everybody.  However I did some Googling, and while the average price seems to be just under $30, a few pairs go as low as $10.

For the ones that I have, they do come in a few different sizes, and I happen to have the small.  I'm about 33" around the waist/butt area, and they fit me just fine there.  I did find them to be a bit tall, definitely aimed at folks taller than myself (5'2"), but this gave me some nice flexibility too.  For instance I could keep the ankle cuffs hooked underneath my own feet to keep the legs from riding up at all while moving around, and the top would come up well past my belly button which while mildly unattractive I'll give you, also allows for keeping the stomach area nice and warm.

I apologize also for the lack of pictures and the lack of complete thoroughness on this one, every time I try to take pictures of these, they disappear (quite a feat considering I own 3 pairs).  And since not all fleece leggings are created equal, and these will eventually become discontinued from Charlotte Rousse, going into extreme detail seemed a little pointless.  But, I will tell you that it is definitely worth looking into getting some fleece leggings.  Finding them online will be easier than finding them in a store, but definitely go looking either way!

Silicone Sports Watch

A new craze, similar to that of maybe Silly Bandz, or those silly "sex bracelets" from almost a decade ago, this watch is trendy, but also useful.

You can get it in a plethora of random colors, the picture to the left doesn't even show all of them.  They're also available all over the internet, and in a whole bunch of random stores as well.

I found mine at Walgreens.  I know, I shop there a lot.  However, this link will take you to a page where you can buy one, or two, or however many, from any host of online retailers. 

As you can see in the picture to the right, mine is a really bright pink.  If my memory serves me correctly, I saw a whole slew of them in neon colors at Walgreens.  I admit, I bought it purely as an impulse: it was hot pink, and it was $3, I had to have it.

It's pretty darn stretchy too, but be careful when stretching it, because you might end up popping the watch component right on out! Seriously! I did it a few times, and after watching my husband get it back in, I'm finally able to do it myself.

When you look at the back of the watch, you'll see that little gray spot with the two buttons, well those buttons help set your watch!  Press the top "A" button twice to reach the setting for the date, then press the bottom "M" button to cycle through all the numbers you need.  After you set the time, it'll go back to normal.  You'll know it's back in the right spot if you see a blinking "hello" between the top hour number and the bottom minute number.  If you get the time with a blinking date, you went once too far (unless you want that feature) and all you have to do is just cycle back through and pay attention to where you stop.

For fit, well, my wrists are just under 6" around and there's plenty of wiggle room here.  My husband's wrists are about 7 1/2" around, and while these are a little tighter on him than on me, they're still pretty comfortable.

All in all, for a few bucks, I'm pretty impressed.  I've had this watch since some time in December I think, and I haven't managed to kill it yet, which is more than I can say for the other $20 watches I had been buying.  It says that it's water resistant but not waterproof, which roughly translates to "shower = ok, tub = bad," so I just prefer to avoid wearing it near any kind of water situation.  Take it off when you shower, and it'll last you a long time.

I know, I really suck. The end of December was really hectic with finishing up all the stuff for my wedding, I was gone the first week or so of January, and started a new job right away. I'm in the process of figuring out how to work everything out so I have the time to get everything done, namely my reviews. In addition to slacking a little bit on getting my EdenFantasys reviews out (don't worry, I'm caught up on assignments), I've also been extremely slacking on getting reviews out here.

The list of things that are up for review has gone through some editing, and I'm not sure what's going to come out as of right this moment, but I'll have some stuff coming out for you hopefully in the next week or two. Nothing all that spectacular maybe, but it should at the very least spur me into reviewing something slightly more spectacular.

Here's to a fabulous 2011!
