Review: Ozeri WeightMaster II Bathroom Scale


I received the Weight Master II for review and it is amazing! This scale is packed with technology to help you track your weight and BMI. 
It can weigh up to 440 pounds in increments of 0.2 pounds. You can program up to 8 different profiles so everyone in the family can track their own progress. It is really easy to set you profile and once set, the scale has auto recognition. It will automatically calibrate with StepOn technology and auto powers off to save the battery life. You'll get immediate, flawless result without any complications associated with more expensive units. This scale calculates your BMI (Body Mass Index) to give you a reliable indicator of you fat classification. 
Another really cool feature is that it will show you the net change of your current weight from the previous recorded weight as well as the previous 3, 7, and 30 recorded weights. The screen will turn green for weight loss and red for a weight gain so you know right away if your headed in the right direction.  

The WeightMaster II features a slip resistant grooved ABS exterior where you stand, covering a tempered glass interior. It is also treated with Microban antimicrobial to disrupt the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria and to maintain surface cleanliness. 






The large light up digital display makes it easy to read and the slim profile is easy to step on and rubber feet keep it stable on the floor. We've been using it for a little more than a week and everyone is getting in the habit of stepping on and checking their weight. And with all the great features, we know at a glance how we're doing. I am super impressed with the WeightMaster II! 
If you would like to check out the Ozeri WeightMaster II Digital Bath Scale you can find it on Amazon!

Review: Lightload Towel

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
Here is a neat item to add to your beach bag, emergency kit, in the car, in your tackle box, camping, almost anywhere you might need a towel. It is super compact in the package. I received the LightLoad Beach Towel for the purpose of this review and it only measures about 3 1/2 inches in diameter and 1 inch thick! It opens to 36 x 60 inches! You could toss this in any bag or backpack to keep handy for a multitude of purposes. 


It's packed tightly and doesn't come undone until it gets wet.

It started "growing" after I passed it under the sink faucet

After another pass under the running water

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
The full thing! It isn't a thick, plush bath towel, but it is absorbent and is a handy thing to have, especially in the first aid kit, survival kit or backpack when hiking. It's large enough to wrap around you for warmth, to protect from the sun, wrap up a wound or to dry off after getting caught in the rain. It is truly lightweight at only 5 ounces so it's not going to add cumbersome weight to your bag and the puck will fit almost anywhere. And once it's dry, it is feather light again and can be folded or rolled back up for multiple uses. 
They offer these in the following sizes: beach towels 36x60 inch in assorted colors, three pack of 12 x24 inch towels in assorted colors and two pack 12 x12 inch towels in assorted colors. 
You can find Lightload Towels on their website or on Amazon!
