di Oro Living Small Silicone Spatula Review

51XoJfK9G2L._SL1000_When I picked the di Oro Living Small Silicone Spatula and saw the word “small” I thought it meant thin. This is actually a small spatula as the pictures show. However it’s size does not detract from its function. This is a lovely, high quality spatula and I am so pleased with it!

IMG_20150916_153623_516 When it arrived I was immediately impressed by the di Oro Living quality. It’s sturdy yet flexible. There is nothing flimsy about this spatula. It’s all one piece with no cracks or casing issues. This means cleaning is SO simple! I don’t need to worry about getting the gunk out from crevices like I did in my old, 2 piece spatula. In fact, nothing even stuck to it!

IMG_20150920_122411_807I first started by scraping the pumpkin from a can. It performed wonderfully. There were no cuts or nicks in it when I was done and I was able to get all of the pumpkin out without a problem. Then I tried it to stir a sauce over medium-high heat for about 10 minutes. Again, no issues at all. Despite scraping the bottom of the pan the whole time the heat had no negative effect on it.

IMG_20150916_153614_182I would consider this product an investment piece for your kitchen. The quality is certainly there and so is the function. I would love to get a whole set of di Oro Living spatulas in the future. They’re just great spatulas!

(I received this product at a discount in order to provide my opinion of it.)

Tie Your Socks Colorful Bamboo Dress Socks Review

(Disclaimer: I received this product at a discount in order to provide my honest review.)

In addition to my typical girly socks I enjoy a good pair of men’s ones as well. They’re often more comfortable, a bit longer, and a bit wider. My newest pair of Tie Your Socks Colorful Bamboo Dress Socks were exactly what I’d expect and I’m pretty pleased with them. In fact, I didn’t have a single “con” to mention. There’s just nothing wrong with them.


These socks are a casual styled ankle length pair, meaning they cover and end a bit above the ankle. I’m a plus-sized gal so my calves aren’t too skinny. These stayed up without a problem. They weren’t too tight either. When I pulled them off at the end of the night my skin was still as smooth as it was in the morning (no lines from the ribbing.)

The colors are super fun. I wasn’t sure what they were going to look like when they arrived. Vibrant is the word I’d use. I washed these before wearing them and there hasn’t been any fading or piling.

They’re softer than what you’d find in average cotton men’s socks. Considering they’re 80% bamboo that’s not surprising. They’re a good quality pair of socks, no toes snagged on threads when I put them on. They seem like they’ll hold up well through repeated use.

I’d pass the Tie Your Socks socks on to my hubby but I love them too much. All in all I’m very happy with this new addition to my sock drawer.
