Core sliders, a letter board for Instagram and a posture corrector

In our last Amazon post, a lot of you said to be careful about taking supplements. I had some minor side effects from the high amounts of biotin after I wrote and published that and am sorry for making a big deal out of them! My skin got dry and I broke out. I stopped taking them and my skin is almost back to normal. My hair has visibly improved and I’ve heard good things about biotin so I was so excited about it. It does work well for some people, my hairdresser recommended it and some of my friends swear by it. I’ve also been taking a daily multivitamin supplement, then I read a tweet from Dr. Jen Gunter that supplements increase mortality! I read up on it and it depends on the vitamins you’re taking and if you’re a smoker. So now I’m only taking ½ a Nature’s Way daily for women over 50 (I’m not over 50 but I didn’t want the iron) and am just focusing on cleaning up my diet. These are random products as usual, with some aimed at resolutions like fitness, organization and life improvement.

A 10×10 inch felt letter board so you can leave little reminders for family or yourself
I feel like anyone would use one of these for Instagram already has one but they have other cute applications, like listing the family dinner or congratulating a kid on a good test score. You can also write little affirmations to remind yourself how awesome you are. I went through so many felt letter boards and most have Fs from Fakespot, but this one has a B, it’s around the same price or cheaper, and it’s double sided and comes with two stands, including a wooden base and an easel! Plus it has 564 letters in white, gold and pink and comes with all the hardware needed to hang it on a wall. This has 60 ratings, 4.3 stars and a B from Fakespot. Reviewers call it great for classrooms and teachers, “cute and sturdy” and a nice item for family to leave messages for each other.

A 10 piece ceramic cookware set for under $70
I use a lot of nonstick pans and I keep reading that they’re bad for your health so I’m considering replacing at least some of them. This ten piece ceramic cookware set by Cook N Home would be a good start and it would also make a nice gift for someone starting out on their own. It has 4.2 stars, over 2,800 ratings and a B from Fakespot. It’s made of aluminum with ceramic coating and comes in black, red or green. You get two pans and four pots with covers. People say it’s so easy to clean and you don’t even need to use oil or nonstick spray, that it’s truly nonstick, and a good quality for the price.

A bamboo shelf to make your desk look classy
You know I love bamboo stuff. I already have this super cute bamboo desk set and this bamboo monitor riser. They make my desk look fancy. This bamboo desk shelf is adjustable to fit your books, little plants and display items. It’s 17.75 inches high and can go from 12.5 to 20.5 inches wide depending on your needs. This has 4.5 stars, 317 ratings and a B from Fakespot. Reviewers call it high quality, easy to put together, and say it’s nice for displaying small items. People also use it in their pantry and on the counter as a high end spice rack. I’m also considering a grid wall panel to display items in my home office.

Core sliders can be a game changer for at home fitness
I bought a pair of core sliders a couple of years ago as I sometimes do this workout by JJ Dancer to tone my abs and legs. You can use paper plates too but they don’t work as well. They make the workout fun and I also use them for circuit training classes at the gym. If you search on YouTube for “slider workout” there are so many to try, and I recommend the ones from PopSugar fitness. These sliders are $13 for black or $10 for pink. They have 4.6 stars, over 3,500 ratings and an A from Fakespot. They have two sides so you can use them on hardwood floors or carpeting. People call them well constructed, say they work better than similar sliders, and like that you can use them with your hands or feet.

A beautiful and comfortable lace dress for special events
This dress is a recommendation from Krista, who has a work party and a wedding coming up and needed a semi-formal dress. She writes “I ordered 4 dresses on Amazon and this is the one I’m keeping. The color is a beautiful, rich emerald green, the lace is heavier than I expected (and doesn’t look cheap and tatty), the lining is thick enough to keep any see-through issues from happening, and the fit is true to size.” This dress comes in the bright jewel tone green Krista has and also in black, navy blue, magenta and red. It’s in sizes small to xx-large and judging from the user photos it looks amazing on all body types. Women say they get compliments on it, that it fits perfectly and that the lace is well made and elegant. This does not have a good fakespot rating, but given all the positive reviews it still has an adjusted rating over 4.2 stars.

A posture corrector can reduce back pain and remind you to sit up
I have this little device on my seat now, by Back Joy, which helps me sit up while working. I think a harness like the one above would work better though. I’ve been doing more yoga and that helps a lot, but just sitting differently would make a huge difference. This posture corrector by Truweo is the number one seller in back braces. It’s just $20 and has 4.3 stars, over 7,300 ratings and a C from Fakespot. People say it works great, that it doesn’t restrict your movements, and that you sit up straight naturally without getting tired and with little effort. It’s also discreet, so you can wear it under clothing, and is said to help reduce and prevent chronic back pain.

A tupperware lid storage organizer so you won’t be digging to find one
As I’ve mentioned, I’m trying to clean hidden areas and upgrade the small annoying things. I currently put all my tupperware lids in a bigger tupperware container. That drawer is a mess. This container lid holder has three separate spaces to help sort lids by size. People say this works exactly as intended, that most every lid fits in it and that “this product has really made a difference for me.”

    I have a different brand, but similar design, of posture corrector (also from Amazon) and I love it. I highly recommend it.

    • Audrey says:

      I thought about buying one, but am concerned that it actually weakens your back and abs since the corrector is doing the work of your muscles. What do you think?

      • Kelly says:

        I bought something called an Upright Go this past Black Friday. It’s a little device that sits between your shoulder blades (either with a necklace or adhesive) and it buzzes when your posture gets too far off. I really like it so far, it reminds me to sit up without doing the work for me.

      • LaUnicaAngelina says:

        I think that’s a valid concern and wish I could answer that. I’m a grant writer and spend a great deal of time in front of a computer. I have a rising desk to prevent me from sitting all day but I realized I need extra help with my posture.

        I have seen the buzzer thing advertised before and I think it’s a great idea too!

      • tealily says:

        I was in physical therapy a few years back for thoracic issues. They had me doing traction and stabilizing exercises. My PT told me that these sorts of braces exist and might help with my pain, but that they don’t recommend them for exactly that reason. I like the idea of the buzzer. I’ve been considering getting one, thanks for the rec, Kelly!

    • Jerusha says:

      I got one of those posture correctors a couple of months ago. I guess I should open the package and try it.(I’m a procrastinator in some areas.)

  2. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    I couldn’t get through days without Alive multi’s. Years ago, I noticed a huge difference between taking nothing, taking other multi’s and taking Alive.

    • Celebitchy says:

      That’s good to hear I will keep taking them! I don’t know if I need a whole one every day but a half can’t hurt.

      • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

        Honestly, they’re the only ones that don’t make me sick to my stomach. And in the throws of men-o-pause (the word always cracks me up), I need everything. With all my hair loss, I’m wondering about the Alive hair and skin supplements and if I can add ‘em for one big daily dose.

  3. lucy2 says:

    I have a ceramic pan and I LOVE it. Super easy to clean, no spray or oil needed.

  4. Lindy says:

    I’m interested in that Tupperware lid organizer–I’m also trying to get a handle on cabinet organization!

    • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

      I like storing my lids on the inside doors. I use all sorts of baskets, magnets and magnet containers, office supply organizers and over-the-door hangers with baskets, hooks, rods, etc. on pretty much every cabinet door (those I haven’t ripped off hinges that is lol). I’m a lover of vertical space and wall organization, and it helps add decor taste if done with thought. Decorative jars in narrow iron shelves provide loads of help. Hanging baskets on rods with s-hooks Another tip is that I love buying whatever I need in usable packaging. I only buy my favorite pickles in mason jars, liquids and oils in beautiful bottles, etc. Throughout the years, I’ve wasted so much money on things I never really needed. If only I had thought more about my spaces and grocery shopped with a denser purpose lol.

  5. heygingersnaps says:

    I use vitamin oral sprays now as it’s so much gentler on the tummy and liver. The brand that I use for me and my family is BetterYou, we use their multi-vit, iron, turmeric, vit. d and vit b12, children’s multi vit and vit. d.
    I like the letter board and bamboo shelf! The back brace will be useful but not a big fan of the US flag emblazoned on the back, sorry (UK reader here).

  6. Giddy says:

    I’m interested in the sliders, but strictly for home use. I’m nervous that they will slide, slide, slide and that I will go smash, smash, smash on the floor. Now I’ve given myself anxiety over it.

  7. Amy Too says:

    I’ve become an evangelist for copper coated pots and pans. I bought one for myself and was shocked at how much easier cooking is with it. Nothing sticks to it and I use about a third of the oil that I used to. It sears things really well and evenly and I don’t loose half of the skin on my fish when I flip it over. I’m in the process of replacing all of my “nonstick” cookware to copper.

    • ChristineM65 says:

      I bought one stainless steel skillet with a gift card over christmas to try out and I’m pretty happy with it. I’m leery about ceramic, not sure why. I looked at the copper too so maybe I’ll test one of those and see which I like better @Amy Too.

  8. WhyDidIDeleteMahCookeez? says:

    All enamel is not created equal. I thought it was and maybe if you have a dishwasher (we don’t but our rent is super cheap) it doesn’t make a difference. But to clean my affordable enamel-over-cast iron Dutch oven I have to really scrub and scrub. Cleaning my stupid expensive Le Creuset pieces is basically a glide over with the sponge and it’s showroom perfect.

    Just an observation I’ve made and thought I’d share.
