Ergonomic Pen #12 The Great UGLee Pen! Review + Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Why this pin works-
“The UGLee Pen only weights 11 grams. That is less than 1/2 ounce! Less mass, means less inertia, more comfort. The overall shape as well as the detailed contours are perfectly engineered to follow the anatomy of the hand. You don’t have to grip this material, it grips you. The UGLee Pen is mated with the smoothest ink system known, smoother than any roller ball, gel ink, or fountain ink pen” ergonomic pen testimonials

Dr Lee-
“Dr. Lee received his BS in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry from Yale University and his MD from Stanford University School of Medicine. Dr. Lee has done his share of writing throughout his academic and professional life. All of the writing required by medical school and physician training took its toll. After trying just about every pen and failing to find a truly comfortable one, Dr. Lee was determined to create his own. Known to even fire his own clay pens, Dr. Lee has experimented with just about every combination of shape, texture, material, and ink mixtures in search of the optimum combination for the “Perfect Pen.”

What I think?
This pen delivers its promise of being comfortable and light-weight. It is easy to hold and writes smoothly. The grip keeps your hand from slipping while writing. I also appreciate that refills can be purchased at $1.50 a piece, so you don’t have to purchase a whole new pen every time the ink runs out. The pens come in multiple colors, so you can customize it to your own taste. Pretty much I like this pen-don't set it down or it will more than likely find a new home with a pen stealer!

Looking for a way to bring some color in your life these cold winter months? Fake Bake has quality self tanning products and other skin care products to make the life of your sunless tan last as long as possible. Fake Bake products come with gloves, a total essential when applying sunless tanners.
Fake Bake adds a pop of color without being orange or tacky feeling on your skin. It goes on in a thin layer-but you can add more depending on how dark you want it. I love the fact that this product gives you that natural sun kisses look without all the rick you get from the sun or tanning beds. 
"PhytoCellTecTM Malus Domestica (contained in Fake Bake Platinum) was created from stem cells extracted from the rare Swiss apple Uttwiler Spätlauber. It was found that when these apple stem cells were applied to the skin, they boosted the production of new skin cells, protected the skin from stress and decreased wrinkles. In effect, they assist your skin to heal itself."

Features:

  • This Apple Stem Cell ingredient aids in promoting the repair of damaged skin cells.
  • Face tanning lotion contains a clinical level of this special ingredient combined with two of the highest quality tanning actives to give your skin that special, natural, healthy summer glow.

Ozeri Green Earth Smooth Ceramic Nonstick Frying Pan, 100-Percent PTFE and PFOA Free Review

ozeri

What I Say:
We are no stranger to the quality products from Ozeri. We have featured many of their products in reviews here at Wrapped Up N U. When I was asked if I wanted to review the Ozeri Green Earth Smooth Ceramic Nonstick Frying Pan I was a happy girl. This pan feels great and I love that it is non-stick without all the harmful chemicals and materials found in most non-stick cookware. Nothing stuck, everything turned over very easily and the pan was a cinch to clean. It heated evenly and quickly and was a pleasure to use. It has a nice hand weight and we love the bright green color-that makes it stand out and easy to find. This pan is made of heavy gauge die-cast aluminum, & a heat-resistant silicon coated handle.
Available in 8″, 10″, & 12″ and ranges in price from $25-$40. Lids are also available for purchase separately.If you are looking for a safer option in non-stick cookware, check out Ozeri’s Green Earth Pans.
If interested in buying this pan you can do so on AMAZON, HOME DEPOT, or SEARS.
What they say:
Utilizing natural ceramic as a coating, the Green Earth Pan by Ozeri is one of the world's first frying pans to achieve non-stick perfection while remaining absolutely free of PTFE, PFOA and other harmful chemicals. Conventional cookware and other ceramic cookware brands achieve their non-stick performance through a coating of PTFE (PolyTetraFluoroEthylene), a synthetic substance that has waxy properties. At very high temperatures, PTFE begins to decompose and release fumes which are documented to be lethal to birds and small pets, and which can be harmful to humans. In addition, traditional pans incorporating PTFE are manufactured with the aid of PFOA (PerFluoroOctanoic Acid), which the EPA has classified as a 'persistent pollutant of the environment'. With the Green Earth Pan's ecozeri technology, even under high temperatures, no harmful toxic fumes are ever released into the environment. This is because the Green Earth Pan by Ozeri utilizes a 100% ceramic coating derived from nature - not from a laboratory. The Green Earth Pan's ceramic coating is completely free of PTFE and PFOA. In addition to being completely eco-friendly and ultra-safe, the Green Earth Pan's natural ceramic coating is far more durable and scratch-resistant than other non-stick surfaces. With better non-stick properties, the Green Earth Pan by Ozeri allows you to saute, fry, bake, boil and braise with as little as half the amount of oil normally used, and it makes cleaning a breeze. The Green Earth Pan by Ozeri is made of the highest quality die-cast aluminum that allows for even cooking and fantastic browning without the risk of hot spots. It boasts a magnetized bottom for rapid heat transfer on induction stoves, and a heat resistant Bakelight handle. Your satisfaction is guaranteed.

What I say:
How cute are these? Looking to send a gift that is memorable and will not break the bank? Check out Sock Grams-Oh my gosh, I so love these! Who does not love socks? They seem to be all the rage today! And these socks will not disappoint I LOVE LOVE LOVE all the designs! They have a huge selection and there really is something for everyone on there! The sockgram came packaged beautifully in appropriately themed tissue paper with a personlizable card with a message, they were in a red metallic envelope. They also had a sample size pack of  get fresh spa black current rich body creme. These are such cute gifts for just about any occasion!
I was extremely excited to have come across a fun and unique gift idea-you will feel loved every time you look down and see your socks!

They a fun and practical gift for friends, grandparents or someone stationed overseas.



Ordering is easy as 1, 2 and 3:

1) Shop socks or cards by recipient, occasion, or sock patterns.

2) Pick a card and add your personal message.

3) Sock Grams will add free foot balm (or stickers for the kids), gift wrap and have it delivered.


What they say:
Sock Grams was born out of the desire to send a greeting to a loved one, along with a small gift. We often found ourselves wanting to send a greeting card, to celebrate an important milestone our friends and loved ones reached, but we wanted to send a little something more than just a card. We also wanted to ensure the gift would last and, most importantly, be in acknowledgment of something that was important or of interest to the person we were giving it to. Novelty socks, in the myriad of patterns and colors were our answer!!! Since starting the company, we’ve continued to add other cozy products like hats, mittens and toys.

We found a world of cozy items that fit all areas of interest in many patterns and colors. We found so many that were fun, fashionable and downright humorous!

With the artistic talent of friends at Brainmusic Design we’ve developed our own greeting cards for you to choose from. We wanted to make sure our customers could personalize these gifts, so we include a component to add personalized greetings and/or salutations.

In our search to make the Sock Gram package special and add a pampering component, we found a Medi-Spa Foot Balm. In each adult Sock Gram we include a .25 fl oz packet of Foot Balm. This Foot Balm was developed more than 60 years ago, specifically to treat feet. It can help relieve pressure of swollen and tired feet and speed healing of blisters and minor abrasions.

For children, we pamper them with a packet of stickers added to their Sock Gram.

So, what does a Sock Gram include?

Your personally chosen cozy item - as many as you’d like to send.

One specially chosen greeting card, with a personal message, if you so choose.

For adult Sock Grams, with socks, we include one .25 fl oz packet of Foot Balm and for the kid’s Sock Grams, with socks, we include a packet of stickers.

Your specially wrapped gift with tissue paper inside a durable, waterproof metallic envelope.

Winter weather can really do lots of damage to your hair-I have found some great products that can help keep your hair in check.
Hair Ecstasy brand is specialized in hair care products and has been in the market for over 20 years. We serve a variety of customers in the Caribbean islands, Central & South America and the United States.
I was able to try out 3 great products from Hair Ecstasy. First the hair polisher regular aloe vera shampoo combo both products are sulfate free and made in the USA. I used both on my daughters hair, her dry hair seemed to drink in the product. She loves the smell and compared it to gummy bears. It left her hair so shiny and silky soft-and easy to brush with less breakage. There was no build-up so it did not leave her hair oily or heavy.
As a little surprise bonus I was also sent the Virgin Hair Fertilizer, it was designed to nourish new hair growth. You know the baby fuzzy hair we all get? It has a unique blend of Vitamins and Natural Extracts that is so good for your hair. What I liked the most about this treatment was that it was nice and thick and I let it soak into my hair before rinsing out. It left our hair feeling fuller and shiner. We have used it a monthly and have really noticed our hair looks and feels softer.
Hair Ecstasy carries lots of other products, shampoo, conditioners and even appliances for your hair. If you would like to purchase any products from Hair Ecstasy you can do so HERE.

What they say:
My products are vegan and vegetarian friendly and are never tested on animals - unless you count my group of friends but that is an entirely different topic to save for another time. All of my handcrafted personal care products are available in fragrances for children, women, men, as well as unisex scents - full fragrance descriptions are listed at the bottom of every product page.

There are a select few products in my catalog that include synthetic ingredients, and this is because no suitable natural alternative exists that can be used to ensure final product quality; you can rest assured these are all selected for their extremely high quality and gentleness. If synthetics are used in any of my products, it is clearly listed in the item description.

I use a minimum amount of packaging for the products in order to reduce waste. I recycle and reuse as much of my packing material and boxes as possible in order to reduce waste. The bubblewrap and peanuts might not be all matchy-matchy, but your order will arrive in fine condition all the same. All of this combined means that you can be confident that your bath goodies will be good for you and the planet.

First the Whoopie Pies- WOW! These are amazing-they are not overly sweet and the filling is not greasy. If you ask me they are just about as perfect as perfect gets all you need is a big glass of cold milk. They are so light in flavor, so be prepared to wanna eat them all.... in one sitting.
Made with sweet cream sandwiched between two soft cake layers, these highest-quality whoopies come in several delicious flavors, and if you know anything about the yummy foods the Lancaster County Amish culture excels in producing, you'll want to try them all! Each whoopie pie is approximately 3" diameter

Bird-in-Hand Bake Shop Wet-Bottom Shoofly Pie-has a very old time flavor filled with molasses richness. But its not over the top sweet  My My My warm it up and add ice cream and this pie will blow your mind. Simple, fresh and good!
 Each 9" pie gives about seven servings of this traditional Pennsylvania Dutch dessert with a gooey bottom, cake-like middle, and crumb topping. For those of us who have that irresistible sweet tooth, Wet-Bottom Shoofly Pie is, without doubt, a "must have". Absolutely, positively delicious with coffee and ice cream, the shoofly pie is by far the most popular dessert made by the Amish here in Lancaster County! If you are like us, you'll find it's hard to stop with just one slice.

Bird-in-Hand Bake Shop Homemade Whoopie Pies

You will surely enjoy these delicacies - it doesn't get much better than a Whoopie Pie for dessert! Whoopie Pies are a Lancaster County favorite that you now can enjoy too.
Made with sweet cream sandwiched between two soft cake layers, these highest-quality whoopies come in several delicious flavors, and if you know anything about the yummy foods the Lancaster County Amish culture excels in producing, you'll want to try them all! Each whoopie pie is approximately 3" diameter.
Note - The Oatmeal whoopies are bigger than the other flavors, so we can't fit as many in any of the three pack sizes. If you choose oatmeal, we'll fit them in as best we can, but you will not receive as many as the pack size indicates. Example #1 - only four Oatmeal whoopies fit in the 5-pack box. Example #2 - In a 9-pack box that includes one Oatmeal whoopie, there may be a total of only 8 whoopies.
We try to avoid shipping whoopie pies over the weekend, to avoid the package sitting in a warehouse over the weekend. If you order this item later in the week, we may wait to ship your order until the following Monday. Whether we wait to ship it or not depends on shipping time to your zip code.
