My cats seems to love to play with these lights and unfortunately have broken off a piece at the end twice, and let me tell you...the lights STILL work, even after being cut short!! Very happy with the product!" —Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE my new waffle maker. I'll be honest — it is much smaller than I expected. You can carry it in one hand with ease. (It's a about the size of one hand.) But I really do love it. They turn out pretty fluffy so even though they're small, they have substance to them. Plus, how can you beat a heart waffle???" —Rachel

    See BuzzFeed's full write-up on this rainbow window film.

    Promising review: "This window film is just STUNNING! I used it for the bottom half of my windows on my main floor for added privacy, so I don’t always have to keep my curtains closed! I wasn’t expecting all the beautiful colors the film presents throughout the day. It’s like having crystal prisms all over the house and it changes from minute to minute! Applying it is also very easy, I recommend getting the application kit that is recommended by Amazon." —Stacy M. Ambrose

    the cover

    Promising review: "Can I give this thing 10 gold stars? I have a 4-foot bathtub (so small it should be illegal) so I used to bring a towel in the tub to cover myself just to keep warm because the water was so shallow. I've used this drain cover three times and now I literally bask in my Epsom salt baths. The silence is wonderful; I used to seethe at hearing the precious bath water drip-drop down the overflow drain. Buy it, hands-down a peace preserver." —M. Smith

    8. And hello, a wine holder so you can sip Chardonnay among your bubbles like some kind care-free diva.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these bookmarks! Even though they are pretty small, they stay in the book, either opened or closed. They are really soft and rubbery, so they won't crack or break very easily. I can foresee these lasting for a long time. Since they come in a package of six, I can not only have one for my book for reading, but I can place these in the pertinent chapters that I am studying in my textbooks as well. They really come in handy for that! These cute, little sprouts were a great treat for the little that I spent on them!" —Aimée le Huitième

    Promising review: "I decided to purchase this item for my dorm to provide a little extra privacy and was worried it wouldn’t fit the XL Twin bed that most universities provide (5 inches longer than typical twin bed). YES THIS DOES FIT AN XL TWIN. So far, it has been very cozy and great for when I need to stay up late without bothering my roommate. They also sent a string of battery-powered lights with clips that make it very cute. I use them in place of a lamp when I am trying to finish up assignments after work and my roommate is sleeping. Great investment for college students!" —Savannah

    Promising review: "Just started using this journal after being in a bit of a funk at the start of this year. I researched many different journals but this was the only one that I felt was simple, that didn't make too many 'demands' on my time, that was straightforward — in short, exactly what I was looking for. It's a simple concept, and I've only been doing it for a week, but I find myself looking for things to be thankful for and adding lines below the three provided and writing in the margins...all because I want to." —silkeymilkey
