Pouch Couch Camping Hammock #hammock #ad

The POUCH COUCH Camping Hammock is surprisingly ultra light, multi-functional and compact.  In fact, it only weighs 821 grams which means it is light enough to take to the beach or camping, slip into backpacks, and take along when travelling.  In other words, it’s compact and portable.

Most people who know me KNOW that I am not an outdoorsy kind of gal.  It’s true.  However, I do enjoy time in my backyard and even some trips to a park or a beach every so often.  On those leisurely days I like to kick back and truly relax.  The POUCH COUCH Camping Hammock fits this need perfectly!Made from parachute nylon fabric the POUCH COUCH Camping Hammock is lightweight, very strong, and durable.  Since the material is breathable it is also fast-drying.  All of these characteristics make the POUCH COUCH Camping Hammock ideal. It even holds up to 400 lbs … this means that you can fit two average-sized people in it!  I personally didn’t try and discover if the hammock could hold 400 lbs but I can imagine that it would since the material does feel strong.POUCH COUCH shares these points about their Hammock:

I love how the hammock fits easily into the attached storage pouch.  The storage pouch won’t get lost and you won’t waste time looking for it!  It literally takes seconds to pack up the entire hammock, rope and carabiners (spring hooks) in to the pouch.  Set up of the hammock is just as quick!  Open the pouch, pop out the hammock, rope and carabiners (already attached to a rope that’s attached to the hammock) and set up is a snap. Find two trees that are approximately 10-15 feet apart and make sure the trees are large enough and are strong enough to hold your weight.  Keep in mind that the required distance between the two trees [10-15 ft] depends on the length of the hammock and how much tension you want.  The POUCH COUCH Camping Hammock comes with rope which is what you use to wrap securely around the two trees and knot them so they don’t come undone.  All that’s left is to hook the carabiners to the ropes ….  And enjoy hanging out!  When you’re relaxing in the hammock the attached storage pouch can be used as a pocket to hold small items like your cell or even some snacks!Lastly, the hammock is large enough to wrap completely around you so you end up looking like a pea pod.  This isn’t a bad thing necessarily.  The hammock material is silky soft so you will surely feel comfortable; however, the extra material can cover you to keep you warm, to block out winds, and to keep out flies and mosquitoes.  If you sit sideways you can stretch the material up so that it can support your head.  You’ll dangle your legs over the side but it is a comfortable way to sit.

Aside from using this hammock between two trees, there are other ways to use it as well.  You can attach hooks to your porch and use the hammock by just hooking the carabiners.  You can certainly use the hammock on a hammock stand.  What I plan on doing is getting my partner to put up two posts in our backyard so that I can securely hook the cabiners on them.  I’m certain that you will be able to come up with many more places to use the hammock.

I recommend the POUCH COUCH Camping Hammock. While it is inexpensive to purchase, it is also an excellent deal because many similar expensive hammocks aren’t as sturdy or durable!  I know I’ll be using mine for years to come.

The AnthroDesk Laptop Table Tray is Perfect! #anthrodesk #backtoschool #ad

The Canadian made AnthroDesk Laptop Table Tray fits the bill perfectly!  [Found here: https://www.anthrodesk.ca/laptop-table-tray-for-desk-or-bed.html or here: https://www.amazon.ca just look for “Foldable Laptop Table with Height Adjustable Legs and Tilting Tray” ]

Disclosure: I have been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.

With all the back to school and back to work buzz right now I thought that I should share with you my latest MUST HAVE item!  It’s the perfect laptop table tray that can serve everyone’s purpose.  It’s great for everyone (SERIOUSLY):  professionals, students, children, and seniors!  This simple laptop table tray is exactly what I was looking for.  I love how much more comfortable I am when writing my posts; quite simply, I can easily move from standing to sitting, from the office to the couch, and I can take it with me to the backyard or to the park!  When I need to store it away I can easily do so by folding the legs down flat.  I like how sturdy it is and how convenient it is too.

Students and children alike will discover how useful this foldable laptop table is.  It’s an amazing item to gift to your College-bound student, and a sweet table for children to use as a reading table or a table to colour on at eye level!  Remember laying stomach down on the living room rug as a child?

My mom is no longer with me; however, if she were alive and still at the long term care residence I could see this foldable laptop table being put to good use there too!  A comfortable ergonomic laptop table; such as this, could be used at craft-making or snack time.

The many uses are limitless!

Key Points:

  • MULTIPURPOSE – Use as a laptop workstation, a standing desk for office work, a TV tray for snacking, a laptop for relaxing in bed, a couch desk, a workstation in a park, or even a book/tablet stand.
  • HEALTHIER WORKING – When used in conjunction with a regular desk it enables you to work while standing; it eases tension caused by long hours sitting in the workplace.
  • EASY TO USE – Two auto-lock buttons on each side easily enable quick changes in height (adjustable from 23 cm to 31 cm). In addition, two clamps may be used to adjust the surface angle (from 0-30°).  
  • Supports up to 60 LBS, will not wobble or sway, provides a secure 52cm x 30cm stable platform for your laptop, notebook, tablet, or monitor.
  • LIGHT BUT STURDY – It can fold flat for convenient storage, is light enough to carry around, and can fit in many bags! It’s made of 100% high quality engineered wood which is environmentally friendly, strong and durable.
  • PORTABLE – You can work anywhere, simply fold the desk flat and you have your on-the-go ergonomic workstation ready.
  • SAFE – There is a ledge on the bottom which keeps your laptop safe while table is tilted.
  • NO ASSEMBLY – The best part is there’s no assembly required!

With limitless uses, I can foresee having a tough time using it in my home.  Why?  I would probably take up a lot of my time trying to hunt it down!  Will I find it in my daughter’s room?  Will I find it in the office?  Will it be left in the car after having been taken elsewhere?  I just know that everyone will want to use it.

Fortunately it’s not an expensive item at all.

Lastly, the AnthroDesk Laptop Table Tray will change how you live and work.  By reducing the amount of sitting in the same position for long periods of time you can improve your health, your productivity, and your creativity.  Research says that sitting for excessively long periods of time is a risk factor for early death, diabetes, obesity, and depression.  Sitting for long periods is actually killing us!

Be wise and take steps to ensure you change your position often.  This is exactly why the AnthroDesk Laptop Table Tray is not only useful for day-to-day use but also for your health.

It’s a great find and why I knew I had to share it with you!

THE Annual Bittersweet Sign That the End of Summer is Near. #LetsGoToTheEX #CNE #EX #ad

It’s THE annual bittersweet sign that the end of summer is near.  It’s a Toronto tradition that we always look forward to.  No need to ask me twice; I’m ready!  I’ve been going to the EX since I was little … we’re talking 5 decades !!

Disclosure: I have been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.

With so much to see and do at the EX, it’s difficult to pinpoint a single favourite activity.  You can pick from:

  • rides
  • games
  • shows
  • shopping
  • food
  • and so much more!

I always find the time to see the animals.  Who doesn’t enjoy watching the alpacas, llamas, piglets, chicks, calves, goat, and even turkeys?  I’ve learned to have patience while parents with their small children have rushed to get the best spot to look at the animals and potentially touch them.  I think (almost can guarantee) that I am more of a child than most children when it comes to animals.  I LOVE animals!  I could watch them all day long, and I always wish I could touch them.

Shopping at the EX is always fun.   When I take a little time to shop, I always try to do a walk-through the Shoppers’ Market, the Arts, Crafts & Hobbies Pavilion, the Marketplace, and the Warehouse Outlets [this is where I can do some serious damage to my wallet!].  There are many deals to be had … and many new products to discover too.

This year’s ‘Food to Try’ List is long and adventurous.  I’ll admit I’m not too adventurous when it comes to my food.  So while I thoroughly enjoyed seeing them pass in front of my eyes, I didn’t actually try any.  I’m not brave enough and I’m not embarrassed to say it.  I look forward to hearing my daughter’s opinion of them!  She definitely doesn’t have a problem trying new food; I can envision her trying a good chunk of this list.

2019 CNE New Foods:

Frozen Cookie Dough Spaghetti, Wasabi Spice Cream, Pickle Pizza, Pickle Lemonade, Tokyo Street Dog, Spicy Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bacon Burger, Pho Fries, Unicorn Funnel Cake, Maple Bacon Churropop, Cheesecake Curds, Peeping Pierogi burger, BBQ Chicken Hearts, Mushroom Coffee, Japanese Soufflé Pancakes, Japanese Soufflé Pancakes, Funnel Cake Chicken Sandwich, Smouldering Fire & Ice Bowl, Gluten-Free Viet Burrito, Deep Fried Avocados Tacos, Dragon Fruit Lemonade üsensation, and Haggis Macaroni & Smoked Cheese

What’s special to note, this year, is that you can look forward to the 70th annual Canadian International Air Show!  It’s FREE with admission. You can read all about the CIAS one the CNE‘s website; however, the essential point, as CNE explains: “It’s now the largest and longest running Air Show in Canada with more a million people throughout the Greater Toronto Area watching the spectacular aerial display each year.”   In my opinion, it’s the Grand Finale to the Finale of the CNE and of summer.

There are only a few days left to visit the CNE so stop reading this post and GO !!!
