Not too long ago I received these Live Infinitely Resistance Loop Bands to review. Honestly, I was really excited because I was and am in major need of some sort of exercise. It is often difficult for me because frankly, my body does not like me but, that is no excuse!
Even though it may not look like it at first glance, these bands are strong and really can give you a work out if used properly. Like weights they come in a variety of pounds ranging from light to extra-extra heavy. Since I was going to use these for my legs (which hurt constantly with arthritis) and for my arms, I thought I should start with probably the lightest.
I was correct in that assumption and these bands helped me to stretch my legs with in due time, can only give me a better strength. I am sure that I will probably be able to move up at least the next level if I can manage to take more sincerity in working out.
Another nice feature of the bands is that it tells you right on the band what weight it is. This is great because then you do not have to have some manual to tell you what to use and you can switch quickly as needed.
These things are strong and durable. Looking above with my leg stretching, you can tell that I stretched that band and it could have gone a little further. Bottom line, it means they won't break with use. Win!
Finally, the entire set of bands come in a storage bag that will keep them all in one place for the next time I use them.
I like these resistance bands and hope to use them much more soon! I recommend getting a set for you too!

I am a Christmas kind of gal. I love everything about it which of course means decorating. One of the things I love to do is string lights everywhere. However, I do not just like to have lights hanging only for the season but a set for all year long.
I recently received a set from HOPDAY that made me as happy as could be. This set is 33 foot long in one great big continuous strand. The set also came in white lights which I love. I strung them around my room immediately on receiving them.
It is hard to see in my photos but the lights are tiny and placed close together making for great interior illumination (borrowing a phrase from Clark Griswold). Since they are as long as they are, it almost went around my entire room.
The nice thing is I can tack them up straight or bend the wire which ever way I want. Although, I did both in my room due to corners and paintings hanging, it would have been kind of cool to maybe write my name on the wall.
Speaking of cool, this beautiful strand of lights do not get hot. I had them all day at the time I took these photos and not one single bulb got hot. Again, I love them!
Even though these plug in, a nice little bonus I got was about a foot long, battery operated set. They were the same lights but smaller version. I twisted those in a plant for a nice little punch of color.
You cannot go wrong with these and I certainly recommend them whether you decorate just for Christmas or all year long.
Disclosure: I purchased a set of these lights with a huge discount from the company. The views expressed here are 100% my own and may differ from yours. ~Naila Moon
