What – and why – Do I Review

When I first started this journey I would choose things that were something I would have ordinarily purchased.  Requesting a product to review that I wanted or needed didn’t subtract from the overall household budget.  Now that I have earned some gift cards doing basically nothing, I can request to review just about any product I want. If you haven’t read my previous posts on how to earn gift cards take the time to do that now. You won’t regret it.  Since January I have earned well over $100.00 in gift cards.  Sometimes the items I choose to review are free.  More often they are between 90-100% off.   I have many different review sites that offer an assortment of free or greatly reduced prices.  If you’re interested in getting started, Review Gurus is the place to start. There are people there who can help you.  Amazon Prime is a must or you’ll get killed in shipping fees.

One of the most recent product I received to review was an 18″ Massage Stick Roller by Live Infinitely.  It has a stainless steel core that can be used as a personal weapon of defense if I’m ever accosted on my way in or out of an exercise establishment.  There are some parts of the body I can’t reach on my own with this massage stick.  I can do my legs and neck alone. I need help for my back and shoulders.  I have range of motion issues in my left arm.  The next time I go to physical therapy I’m taking this with me so Ashley can use it on me.


The Live Infinitely Massage Stick has ergonomically designed hand grips which is great for my arthritis.  It’s much easier to hold onto than some massagers designed in a similar manner.  I can use it before or after physical therapy.  If I use it before I go for walks I find there’s less muscle burn going up steep hill.  I live in semi mountainous region.  My driveway is pure hell on the quads.

If you’re man has a hairy back, I’m going to suggest you take him to a spa and have that baby waxed.  The durable rollers are sectioned.  That hair is going to get pinched or pulled. However, if you’re into a small amount of sadism or he’s into a small amount of masochism, more power to you.  Enjoy.

This is just one of the nicer products I have received for free in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.  I have no relationship with the seller. I don’t get compensated for doing the review either.  What I have shared with you on this post is basically what would be required of you if you wanted to start review products.

If you’re interested in purchasing this Live Infinitely 18″ Massage Stick Roller , they’re sold on Amazon for under $20.00.








I stay at home to care for my 81 year old father in law and my permanent roommate (read: hubby). We enjoy all kinds of activities, together and apart (I'm sure you know how this goes..) My interests are varied and I love learning new things. I am a self declared beauty product junkie simply because I refuse to look any older than 29. My father in law and I grow 8 different berries on our property but would love to expand our garden in the future. We adore kitchen gadgets, aromatherapy, crafting and anything DIY. He is a retired artist, my husband is retired USMC and into all things survivalist (I mean, the zombie apocalypse COULD happen y'all) and I am in charge of everything the men would forget about.
