Bluapple VeggieZips with HydroLiners

I have had the pleasure of working with Bluapple again.  When they contacted me to test their VeggieZips with Hydroliners I jumped at the chance.  These are a great product for getting your fresh produce to last longer.

They come in a box of 22, both liners and bags.  These are so easy to use and helps you to save money!!

They are easy to insert if you don't want or need to wrap your produce in them.

I used our bell peppers to test out VeggieZips.  The top picture is of the one I placed in the bag with a liner (which wasn't necessary for this veggie) and the bottom picture is of one I just placed in the drawer.  The pepper in the bag looked and felt almost like the day we bought them.  The one not in the bag, just placed in the fridge was already starting to look bad.  The one not in the VeggieZips was starting to? wrinkle up and get real soft.  This was after a week of being in the fridge.

These bags work wonders at saving your fresh produce.  I can't wait to use these with all our produce.

Produceology: Produce Storage Tips

The Pillars of Produce Freshness
T: Temperature Control
H: Humidity Control
E: Ethylene Gas Control
There are three pillars to produce freshness: Temperature control, humidity control, and ethylene gas control. Your refrigerator controls the temperature, VeggieZips helps to control the humidity when needed, and Bluapple will absorb ethylene gas. By using Bluapple products, produce life can be maximized and extended.
Have questions about the best way to store your fruits and vegetables? We have compiled a comprehensive list of all of the common - and even not so common - produce that you might need to store. Get ready for some Produceology!

What are VeggieZips and How do they work?

VeggieZips™ are specially designed produce bags that help to maintain humidity. Each bag comes with a HydroLiner™, a thick, cloth-like towel that can be dampened to add moisture to produce, or used dry to absorb moisture. VeggieZips™ solves the problem of vegetables needing humidity levels maintained while allowing for harmful ethylene gas to escape and fresh air into the bag.  The produce bag has U-Vent™ holes throughout the bag; fresh air goes in, ethylene gas goes out!  And, by using a damp HydroLiner™ with produce that needs to stay moist, a humid environment is created. However, not all produce needs high humidity levels, they can still dry out faster if left outside of a bag.  For instance, using a VeggieZips™ bag with a dry HydroLiner™ for strawberries, allows for moisture to be absorbed from the berries, but at the same time, they aren’t being dried out with the circulated air from the refrigerator.  You can check out their FAQ section for some of the most commonly asked questions like this.

For the low price of $9.99 for a 22 pack they are definitely something to keep on hand.  Between these and their original product, Bluapple, you're produce will last so much longer.

Quality Kinzd Wallets

I have lucky to the chance to work with Kinzd to review some of their wallets.  They sent me three different styles to review.  These wallets can fit into just about any lifestyle from calm to very rugged.

The first wallet I received is their Slim Wallet For Men Minimalist.  This wallet has a nice sleek look and feel to it.

There are 4 slots to keep your cards plus the slot for your ID.  The slot for the ID is lined in a satin material which makes it easy to insert and remove unlike with some other wallets where when you insert it you them have to fight to get it out if need be because it is grabbing.

 There is also a pocket on each side where you can put you cash.  This wallet is a nice one that can be used either casual or dressy.  I think any man would be proud to carry this leather wallet.

The next one is their Lichee Pattern Magnetic Leather Money Clip. This is a sophisticated looking wallet that I think would be great for business or a formal occasion.  That's not to say it couldn't or wouldn't work for everyday use also.

The money clip wallet is made of leather as well.  This is a more compact wallet.  You can put your cash either in the money clip or in the inside pocket.  There are three slots for your cards and the ID slot. Just like their slim wallet this one has the satin lining so it makes it east to insert and remove your cards.  This is a wallet that will help give any outfit that little special touch.

The last one that they sent me was their Minimalist Wallet.  This is a unique wallet and it is true to it's name. Just take a look at it.

This is a wallet that I wasn't too sure about at first.  My fiancee and I after checking it out completely decided we knew exactly when this would be the perfect wallet to carry.  Unlike the other two wallets this one is made of a lycra material.  You place your cards/ID inside the opening of the material.  With it being a lycra material it securely holds your cards.  There is a small pocket on one side of this one that you can place a little bit of cash or change.  This would be a great wallet for when you go to the beach, camping, hunting, or anything along those lines.  It is small enough that it will fit in your front pocket.  We thought this was such a cool concept for a wallet.

 About Kinzd

At Kinzd, we’re building a new kind of leather accessories business. A collection of superior quality, personalizable and accessibly priced leather goods.

We founded Kinzd in 2012 with a simple goal – to create the perfect men’s wallet. We were tired of seeing the options limited to low quality items, or heavily branded, expensive designer ones. Surely we thought, there should be another alternative for both men’s wallets and small leather goods. We set out to create that perfect wallet, our Classic Bifold , for the curious!) , and we now offer over 25 styles of men’s wallets, along with an extensive range of personal, business, tech, and travel accessories available in a multitude of leather colors for both men and women.
Our mission today is to offer the best selection of premium leather goods available online – timeless items that can be personalized with your monogram or company logo – and beautifully packaged as a gift to yourself or someone else. We do not have any brick and mortar stores, and we sell exclusively online. Selling directly to the consumer allows us to offer you the highest quality product at the best possible price. Since day one, creating beautiful products at a great price and offering an unparalleled customer experience have been our driving goals.
We are deeply committed to quality. All of our leather goods are now produced in our own factory, and we closely monitor every step – from leather hide selection, to cutting, to sewing. We specialize in small batch production, allowing us to offer you the greatest variety of leathers and colors possible, and we can truly say that each of our items is carefully handcrafted.
We are excited to be on this journey, and thrilled to have you as a visitor! We are growing every day, and hope you stay tuned for all the exciting new initiatives we have planned in the coming year. We invite you to contact us by email, phone, or via  Facebook  if you ever have any questions.

Kinzd Story

KINZD WAS FOUNDED WITH A SIMPLE GOAL: TO OFFER SLIM WALLETS AT EXTREMELY AFFORDABLE PRICING, WITH THE USE OF SOCIALLY CONSCIOUS MATERIALS WHENEVER POSSIBLE. THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO BUILD A SUSTAINABLE BRAND OVER TIME. Kinzd was founded on Hong Kong over 5 years ago thanks to a little pup named Kinzd. He pretty much destroyed anything leather he got his paws on. You can imagine what kinzd did to an old wallet.
But thanks to the little pup, I decided to design and AS145 Slim Wallet the original product that has led to this mens wallet brand. Since then, we have launched AS150 Money clip wallet and delivered over 2,500,000 wallets to 95 different countries.
We’re just a little company based in Hong Kong offering you slim wallet, thin wallet, minimalist wallet and money clip. We do so with the integrity and philosophy of always doing our best to deliver quickly, with the best customer service. An unsatisfied customer is never left behind, and we always offer refunds, regardless of the reason. We have a small team, but we give you big thanks for giving us the opportunity to create products for you.


Natural. Versatile. Rugged. Traditional. These are just a few of the words commonly used to describe leather, one of the oldest human crafts. The process of tanning and stabilizing a natural hide may have originally been developed by humans out of necessity, but nowadays leather is synonymous with both luxury and durability. It is no coincidence that even in modern times, with so many materials available, leather is still considered one of the finest materials. Not only is leather durable and long-lasting, but it represents a kind of craftsmanship, skill and artistry that can only be achieved by hand. 
Consumers often confuse “imitation leather” with the real thing, which we like to think of as full-grain leather. The surface of full-grain leather has not been removed or heavily sanded possessing the natural qualities of an authentic leather hide.  At Kinzd, you will never find split grain, corrected, bonded, or imitation leathers.  Explore our core collection of full-grain leathers below, most developed by & offered exclusively through Kinzd.

 Kinzd not only does wallets but they also have other items as well.  Go check them out. I believe you will be able to find something for yourself as well as for that special man in your life.  After all Fathers Day is coming up! Their shipping is fast so you should receive it in plenty.  I am really impressed with this company and their products as they truly want to make each customer happy and feel valued.  You can also find them on amazon by clicking HERE.

GlassesShop Makes getting eyeglasses easy

I had to privilege of working with  I didn't think it would be as easy and painless as it was to place my order for eye glasses online and to get good quality glasses.

All I had to do was get my prescription, pick out the glasses I wanted and submit the information.  Within a couple of weeks I was wearing my new glasses that didn't break the bank.

The glasses I choose were the Cancer Rectangle - Burgundy

Not only are they are great looking pair of glasses but they also provide me with very clear vision just like with ones purchased from my eye doctor.

Cancer Rectangle eyeglasses are made of superior acetate material. Spring hinge and decent colors (brown, burgundy, tortoise and black) are suitable for both men and women. These classic frames are extreme comfortable for daily wearing. The lenses are big enough for single vision, bifocal and progressive lenses.
