This is the best case I have found for the S7 Edge so far, but even then it could be better. I like that the case is smaller than some of the other wallet style cases, and I like that it doesn't have a lot of slots or extra spaces to fill, but there are a few things I would change.
1.The case fits the phone well, but the corners and edges do not come higher than the screen. If you dropped the phone in this case while opened, it could shatter the screen easily because there is nothing to soften or stop the impact.
2. The magnet closure is nice because it opens and closes easily and quickly, but the magnet itself could be a little stronger to prevent accidental opening.
3. The material could be a little better quality. It isn't terrible, and has not torn or had any issues, but you can tell by the look and feel that it isn't top of the line quality.
That said, the case does what it is intended. It fits in your pocket for easy access and it provides a way to protect the phone while on the go. The buttons are accessible while in the case and the stand function can be useful if watching video or listening to music too. Not bad at all, just not perfect.

I love chocolate. There, I said it. I love chocolate so much, I have to avoid it whenever possible. That said, there are times when you just can't avoid having a piece..or two..or three. One of those times for me is Mother's Day. Every year the kids get me candy..and who am I to tell them not to? Once they give me said candy, I am kind of obligated to eat at least some of it..ok maybe all of it. I can't let a good gift go to waste.
The mix of pieces inside was splendid. It had a little bit of everything, which was so much better than multiple pieces of the same few flavors, like some other boxes have. This mix had nuts, cordials, caramels, coconut, creams and more.
I also received a few amazing bars to sample with my box. Those little bars are packed full of amazing flavor and would make excellent basket fillers, stocking stuffers or reward treats. They come in flavors like Mindy Mint, Caramel, Dark Chocolate Almond and my favorite, the Almond Coconut White Chocolate Truffle..sooo good!
The chocolates from Mrs. Cavanaugh's are the best I have ever tasted. Ever. I would highly suggest them for any chocolate fan, or as a delicious gift idea for anyone with a sweet tooth!

Summer is upon us, and and that means sun, sun and more sun. To keep those harsh rays out of the kids eyes, you need a good pair of sunglasses that can withstand life on the go. Enter Baby BanZ.
The products we have tried from baby BanZ are quality made, which is helpful with constantly moving kids. The plastic frames are nice and sturdy, so I don't have to worry that they might be dropped and break every time they are worn. In fact, they have been dropped several times and still look perfect.
One thing that is different about these glasses is the band that you can attach to them. It helps keep the glasses in place and even matches the color or pattern of the glasses for a more stylish look.
I like that the glasses come with a cushioned storage case for safekeeping. The case has press-to-release sides versus strings like many kids cases, so it is easy to get into, the glasses can't fall out, and it won't end up a knotted mess.
The Baby BanZ lenses are polarized for optimal performance too. They offer boys and girls styles in a wide age range to offer just the right glasses for your little faces.
