    Promising review: "Super easy to set up. It doesn’t take up a lot of space and it also looks like it’s art so it doesn’t have to be just for makeup or sitting on a vanity.

    Promising review: "I have been looking for a terracotta jersey knit duvet cover forever and took a chance with this one. The color is great, a dark terracotta/rust color.

    Promising review: "This is the best modern cat tree on the market! It’s fun to look at, as opposed to the outdated carpeted trees. The rocket is a conversation starter and my cats loved it right when I set it up. The plush pads provided are perfect for them to snooze on and the hanging balls provide hours of entertainment. I’m so glad I bought this for my kitties to enjoy! The manufacturing quality on it is very good. I was really impressed with how perfect each piece was and the instructions were very clear to follow. It did take a little over an hour to set up on my own; another pair of hands would help expedite it! I can’t say enough great things about it! You won’t be sad that you purchased it!!" —Birgitta

They do keep the light out and help keep the room noticeably cooler. The windows get full sun all day; this room gets hot in summer and the curtains make it so much nicer.

You can adjust the brightness and can even put them on a timer so they turn off on their own after 15, 30, or 60 minutes. They come with a sticky tape to attach to cabinets but I also added sticky back Velcro and they have stayed on perfectly. The company sent me an email offering any assistance if I should need it.

    Promising review: "After moving our furniture, I noticed a few scratches on the TV stand. I looked everywhere here in Hawaii for something moderately priced to match the stand to no avail. I found this product on Amazon and it exceeded my expectations! Not only was it a great price, but there were 12 different options to choose from so I was able to find something that matched the TV stand perfectly! This kit includes six wax crayon-looking sticks and six actual markers. The crayon things are for if you have a deep gash and the markers are for basic cover ups. Mine was just a cover up so I mixed two of the colors and I seriously can not tell where the scratch was now unless I get super close and feel the wood grain for the scratch mark." —nalokaloka

    Promising review: "This stuff is absolutely AMAZING! My wife and I were getting tired of looking at our worn out cabinets and wood paneling and were very close to paying a professional thousands of dollars to refinish it all. But, then we came across this product. Our paneling and cabinets were looking rough. We have two dogs who jumped up and scratched places. We also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were, and several other areas that were just worn from heavy traffic. This stuff was like a magic eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemish. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let is sit for 20 minutes before wiping it off with a clean towel. Everything looks brand new. I'm buying a couple more so we can finish our cabinets and wood paneling. We're so glad we found this product." —Kris

    Promising review: "You know how you hate buying something online because you're not sure if it's going to be crap. Well let me tell you, this is one of the best purchases I've made. It's excellent quality. The foam is nice and plush and you can't feel the board. If you ever need to move, the whole thing folds in half and the legs and all the part fit in a zipper compartment in the back for easy transport. Would be perfect for some one who stages homes because of how portable it is but the quality is A+." —T. Sayer

    Promising review: "I LOVE this piece of furniture. My bathroom is ridiculously small so I have always felt like I couldn’t decorate in there but this shelf is a game changer. I absolutely adore my bathroom now!! Assembly was a piece of cake, directions were super easy to follow. The shelf comes with anchors, so this thing is going nowhere, very sturdy. The bamboo itself seems to be pretty decent also, this is my first piece of bamboo furniture, I love it." —Kristen

    Promising review: "Works great, sticks great, looks great, and feels nice and smooth. My kitchen's older and I can’t stand the almond colored countertops (renting). I’m able to wipe down with cleaner just fine. It’s easy to apply, you just need to pull the liner back correctly when applying. I used a sock to smooth it out as I pulled the paper back section by section (horizontally). All you need is a ruler/measuring tape and razor/box cutter. Won’t damage your countertops either." —Lyn

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in four sizes).

    reviewer photo of the plush blanket thrown over a couch

    Promising review: "From the minute I took it out, I could tell that this was a great buy! Warm, comfortable, and definitely an all-season pick! It's light enough to use indoors for the summer when the AC is on, or warm enough for outdoors on a cold chilly night. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! And with the lifetime warranty, you really can't go wrong. My suggestion: get one for yourself and gift another before the holidays come! I can see these getting sold out in the colder months for sure." —A.Rose
