About 2 and a half weeks ago I decided to make an order from RoseGal and these are my thoughts about the entire process. I did not receive anything from RoseGal and all thoughts are my own.
The site has a very modern look. The homepage has many sale ads, coupon codes and links to different categories. As far as the site itself, my only complaint is the navigation menu, it often gets in the way of what I am looking at. Although the menu is quite large, it would be better placed in the corner as appose to across the top of the page.
The selection of clothes is very modern as well. For my taste, it is too modern. In the men’s section, there are too few “classic” pars of jeans. Most of the jeans have the distressed look, which is okay for hanging out but not appropriate for all occasions. The shirts are very similar in style and most shirt and jean combinations match well. While the women’s collection is far more vast than the men’s, much of the clothing selection for women is not meant for formal occasions either. It is also of note that RoseGal does have a plus sized section for women and it would be great if they had a big and tall section for men. RoseGal also sales wigs at competitive prices and maternity wear.
The biggest complaint I have with the whole process is the sizing. The jeans I ordered where just a bit smaller than I accepted but wearable. The shirts are so small that I almost could not get them on. I ordered an XXL shirt, which would normally fit just right or I would be swimming in. These shirts are so small that I had to stretch it out to get in it. Since XXL is the largest size RoseGal offers, I will not be ordering any more shirts for myself from them anytime soon.
At the time I order, there was free standard shipping on all orders so I gladly accepted that as my shipping method. Luckily I was not in a rush to get my order as it took 2 and a half weeks to receive. Almost immediately after I placed my order I was emailed tracking information and that was the last thing I heard from RoseGal about my order. For about a week, I checked the tracking number on the FedEx site and the location never changed. Then the next week, I was so frustrated that I did not check. The following week when I checked, it had finally started moving and before I could blink, it had arrived.
What most RoseGal faithful enjoy is the pricing. I bought 2 shirts and a pair of jeans for $30 USD. The shirts are not like anything I had ever seen in the malls. Had I actually been able to wear the shirts I would be very happy with my order. I would definitely order from RoseGal again, but I would definitely not order any shirts. I would also suggest paying for shipping if you are impatient or on a timeline as standard shipping takes forever.
I ordered the Jeemak 4k Action Camera (Jeemak 74-r) because I was interested in a Go Pro like camera. These are my first thoughts after receiving the camera and a few test shots. The video contained within this article was shot on the camera.
I ordered my Jeemak 4k Action Camera from Amazon, shortly after I placed my order, I received an email staying that the camera would arrive about a week later. To my surprise, I actually got my camera 2 days after I ordered it.
Once I got the camera and opened the package, I realized that I did not have an SD card. For the most part, I had to wait until I could get one to see what this camera could do.
The documentation that comes in the package is vague. There are no real instructions on how to put the mounts together. The instructions say that the camera only accepts class 10 or higher sd cards. It seems as if the instructions are translated from another language into English.
After a few shoots, I decided to hook the camera up to my computer a view what I had shot. The onboard screen is tiny and view always looks grainy. If you want to download the pictures and videos you will have to put the camera in USB Mode. When I first tried to put the camera in USB Mode it gave an error, after that it was fine and the drive popped up on my desktop. Perhaps I do not have the SD card inserted correctly but it is more than likely a problem with the card itself or the camera. I used a PNY 32 GB micro SDHC card.
In my opinion, the video is excellent but with light and horrible in the dark. The video within this blog is shot in 1080p (1920 x 1080) at 30 fps (frames per second). The camera has options for 720p at 30fps and 60 fps, 1080p at 30fps and 60 fps and 4k at 30 fps. The camera can also be used as a webcam. I would suggest picking up a card reader, especially if you are going to be recording longer videos.
The camera has an HD output port but does not come with the cable. If you do not have a computer or device to transfer the videos and pictures to, this would become an issue.
The Jeemak 4k Action Camera is far from perfect. Everything considered I would recommend this camera to anyone who is just starting out or just looking for a budget-friendly action camera.
During my lifetime 7 Eleven has been the king of convenience stores. Until recently, I did not realize that many regions of the country were not privileged to Big Gulps and Slurpees. As popular mid-Atlantic upstarts, Royal Farms and Wawa have come into the local market, newer approaches to convenience have found their way into the lives of many.
If you stop every morning to grab a coffee and/or a bite to eat, you will get the most out of the program. Every time you purchase something, allow the cashier to scan the app. You gain points for most items in the store. Bonus points for some items or by purchasing a combination of items. Every 7th cup of coffee/Slurpee/Big Gulp is free.
So the big question is, what do they get for all of these wonderful freebies? Well, they get to collect data about your shopping habits. Plus many of the items that contribute to the biggest rewards are priced to that profit margins are well over 100 percent. The deals on the app guide shoppers to buy certain items. If you are against companies tracking your every move, this may not be for you. Truth is, this is going to be the way of life going forward, like it or not.
I know many people that would not spend much more than a few dollars for a combination of shampoo and conditioner that will leave your hair feeling dry and your head itchy and full of dandruff. A few years ago I found the OGX line in a local grocery store and I have not used another shampoo and conditioner since. While this article is for any and every one, men’s, in particular, should be sensitive about which products they use in their hair. Maintaining healthy and well-hydrated hair wards off damaged hair and hair loss.
While a beauty bottle is an eye catcher, the scent of the OGX products is breathtaking. Not only does it smell great when you pop the top, but the fragrance also stays in your for hours. While smelling good does not have any nutritional value, it feels good.
The conditioner provides great hydration for your hair. I often use it as a leave in conditioner. If my head feels dry, I will put use some in the morning and it keeps my scalp moisturized all day.
If you have ever been in the store, looked at these products and walked away because of the price, this is your chance to walk back. Even if you cringe as you press the checkout button, you will grin after you use these products and become a faithful as I now am.
It’s that time of year again. The holidays are coming so fast that if you blink you will miss it. Halloween deals are imminent. The temperature is dropping and its now time to switch up your wardrobe. The true classic dressers love the clothing options that a cool fall day allows. Sign up for email alerts so that you never miss a deal from one of your favorite brands.
Ciroc has quickly become one of the more popular high-end Vodkas. Whether plain or flavored, people love to be able to say they are sipping Ciroc. Now they cross over into the dark liquor market with Ciroc VS French Brandy.
As a shot, it tastes amazing. I do not know where in France they got their grapes but it tastes almost like a cognac. It is very smooth and does not “burn the throat” or “put hair on your chest” as they say. At 40% alcohol volume (80 proof) Ciroc Brandy is not ridiculously strong or weak.
The most basic mixed drink one can make with a dark liquor is with a cola. After tasting this brandy solo, it dies mixed with Coke. On the website, there are a few mixed drinks suggestions. Most of the drinks contain lemon which would kill the flavor of this liquor in my opinion.
Like most other Ciroc products, Ciroc VS French Brandy is more for show than for substance. Add a price tag of just under $40 USD for a 750 ml bottle and this is definitely a luxury. Most Brandy’s in the US are under $25. While this is supposed to be a creme de la creme liquor, this is not in my opinion.
Cut the Italian sausage into slices and pan fry until brown.
Cut the fettuccine to your desired length and boil for 10 to 15 minutes. Drain the water and add the sausage, Alfredo Sauce and cheese. Warm and stir over medium to medium-high heat until cheese is melted.
This is not a gourmet recipe but it will feed your family for a night or two and it tastes great. Many people like to use Grated Parmesan Cheese but to me, it makes the dish salty. This is one of my favorite meals and it normally lasts just me for a week.
Functionality could be argued all day, and I have added that topic to this discussion. Universality is and that is where the Xbox 360 Controller is unmatched.
Why Is It Better
Normally, in an attempt to suck the life you of a product in the name of profits, hardware makers use proprietary parts. In the second version of the Xbox, Microsoft decided to use USB as appose to something proprietary. This cost-saving idea actually creates a segway for many like myself to cross over from console to PC gaming.
Perhaps because I have been using the controller for so long, it feels perfect. The controls are similar within similar types of games. While the controller does not replace a mouse, the once popular keyboard addition is really cool. The Xbox 360 Controller was definitely designed for a console but it works well with the Windows PC. In Steam’s big picture mode, it works as a mouse as well.
Many PC gamers enjoy tinkering with settings. The massive amount of settings is what separates PC’s from consoles. Many console gamers would love to switch over to the PC but the thought of having to set up controls just to play is unimaginable. While there are many great controllers available, most will not allow a gamer to just play as the Xbox 360 Controller will.
Even to this day, most blockbuster PC games are packed with Xbox 360 Controller maps. 13 years after launch this peripheral is relevant as ever. The newer Xbox One Controller is very similarly designed and has a similar feel. Others have tried to release controllers with up-to-features but fail to capture the essence of what a Controller is.
Recently I was watching videos on youtube and I came across an ad for an app called Robokiller which claims to block most scam and spam calls. A guy in the promo describes how he wastes so much of his downtime answering scam calls. I normally do not answer calls that I believe are scams and possibly miss real business so I quickly download it to see if this works.
The ad shows that the app actually answers the suspected scam calls for you and distracts the scammer for a while. I suppose after a while they will realize that they are talking to a recording and hang up. There are at least 50 “answer bots” as they are called and range from polite to rude to annoying. The Robokiller records the calls and allows you to listen to them later. The calls where a person answers are quite funny but just as often the caller is a bot as well.
In the ad, it never says how much this service cost. Once you download and set up the app you will realize that this service is not free. The best deal is the $29.99 per year. They do give you a 7-day free trial. You can also add numbers to the service. Do you have an annoying ex, friend or family member, you can block them as well.
In my opinion, the trial is just long enough. If you are paying attention to your calls daily you will be able to see if the service works for you. At this point, I am not sure that the service works well enough for the asking price. I think they should have a free version with ads an/ or fewer features as well. This would allow for the service to collect more information about the scam and spam callers.
