Pens For Arthritis Hands


 I was given the UGLee Pen to try and I love it! It is very comfortable to write with and the ink looks very smooth on paper. My 3 year old daughter loves this pin. She tells me that her hand hurts so that she can write with my pin. Here is some information about this pin.

  The UGLee Pen is good for everyone who writes (even just a grocery list), and is especially helpful to people who experience pain and discomfort when writing, for example those with arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, etc.,. It's also the best writing utensil  for children who are learning to write and are developing fine motor skills, as well as helpful for special-needs children who find holding a pen or pencil properly difficult. And for high-school and college students who have to take copious notes, this pen helps keep hands and fingers from cramping.

Please like them on Facebook.

Premama Prenatal Vitamin Mix Review& Giveaway

I was offered the chance to review Premama Prenatal Vitamin Drink Mix, while I was not pregnant I realized that prenatal vitamins have omega 3 in it which is good for reducing inflammation. and I need lots of that because I have arthritis. So I tried the vitamin mix and it taste pretty good. They do taste a little like fish oil, but it you put the vitamin mix in some juice you can't taste it at all. The benefits of this product is:
  • Small packets of powder
  • Easy to carry in your bag or purse
  • Rip, drop into liquid and stir
  • Drink
Some of the benefits include: Nausea relief, all natural ingredients, 6 calories only, gentle on the tummy, Vitamin D3, ginger root, folic acid, DHA and more.
“Premama provides prenatal vitamins to expectant moms in a comfortable, easy-to-drink form, and helps moms enjoy relief from nausea and indigestion.
I would highly recommend this product for anyone looking to find an easier, more tolerable vitamin!

Potty Cover Review

The person who invented the potty cover is a genus. It completely covers the toilet so that you don't have to worry about germs. If the toilet is wet and there is no tissue, have no fear mommies, introducing potty covers! No more worrying about wet and dirty toilets in public restrooms. I like them I don't have to worry about my children touching the toilet seat. Potty covers are also  great for when you are are potty training. There are 6 potty covers in each package. You can buy them on amazon for 5.99.
