    Promising review (for the book): "I give one star…hardcover is too hard. Just kidding! I give this five stars. Without a doubt, this is my favorite coffee table book and surprisingly also super educational. Perfect combination of sassy and informative while poking fun at one-star reviews of some amazing national parks. I love, love all the added educational snippets along with the review illustrations. And Amber’s writing style is so personal and relatable I feel like we could be friends. Such a fun book, so worth the buy!" —Anna

    Promising review: "It was an absolute pleasure trying this brand of tea... The packaging itself is gorgeous, and is definitely worthy of setting out for guests. It is very inviting. When you open the box, you are gifted with some pretty amazing fragrances. You can tell the ingredients of these teas are high quality and FRESH... This is my new favorite brand of tea, hands down... For our part, it took us just a few days to go through the entire box, (it's THAT good!) and so we will probably be on the lookout for options of buying this tea in larger quantities." —Benjamin Martin

    Promising review: "This lamp really exceeded my expectations. I bought it on a whim and honestly wasn't expecting that much, but I'm really happy with it. Feels like it's made of durable, quality material and emits a strong light (but it's not too bright. I use it in the evenings when I'm trying to wind down before bed and it's bright enough to light up my room without feeling like it's going to mess up my sleep cycles). Highly recommend — really does feel like you're watching a lovely sunset :)" —Amazon customer

    Promising reviews: "Love this bottle/ soda maker. I am obsessed to fizzy drinks and cannot take my bulkier at home maker with me to work or when I travel. This maker allowed me the compact convenience of taking my fizzy drinks everywhere I go. I can control what I put in my body and always get my flavors I love. 10 out of 10 do recommend! —Zeusboomer911

    "This is super fancy with a modern look. Probably one of the fanciest mini soda makers you can get. This product works great. Does the job of making soda water within seconds. I used it a couple of times and am satisfied with the product. We tend to buy bottled plain soda very frequently from supermarkets and this machine will save a lot of money over the long run. I would recommend this product if you are into carbonated water." —LiveWithTech
