REVIEW – Fairy lights are all the rage.  You see them as backgrounds in Zoom meetings, in photos of Instragram-worthy patio shots, in catalogs of all types, in movies, and on just about every Pintrest board.  But not all fairy lights are created equal.  This is especially true for solar fairy lights.  Despite the low …

REVIEW – In late 2020, I reviewed the Edifier TWS NB2 wireless earbuds. I said then that they looked as good as they sound.

LEVOIT Vortex IQ 40 cordless stick vacuum review – the easiest vacuum I’ve ever used!
