Guest Product Review by Brenda: Rhea Women's Footwear

So Bryan finally gave me an opportunity to participate in his world of product reviews; and although I have picked up a lot of knowledge, simply by being married to my tech-nut of a husband, my first review will not be about anything technology related.  First let me tell you that I am definitely not what you would consider a fashionista or "girly-girl", so shopping is NOT at the top of my favorite things list; and wearing "cute" but uncomfortable shoes all day, just to look good, is just not going to happen!  So, when I read the story of RHEA Footwear, I was intrigued.  A cute shoe that is also comfortable and safe on all surfaces?  I had to try it!  So, I selected the "Daphne Black Bootie"; a shoe that I can wear for work with my pant suits or on my days off with my jeans.

The leather upper, never-slip outsole and 1 3/4" heel height are absolutely perfect! At first I wasn't sure if I was going to like the fit, as they are looser then most of my other shoes, and I was concerned that I may develop a blister from them.  But, after wearing them non-stop for a week, I found them to be extremely comfortable, even for my slightly wider foot.  I wore these booties for 10+ hours on many days and they never became uncomfortable, even while standing for several hours at a time.

I look forward to trying other styles of the RHEA Footwear products; and would recommend them to my friends, family and co-workers.

Product Review: Sony Xb80bs Extra Bass Sports Wireless In-ear Headphones


I recently received this pair of Sony Wireless In-ear Headphones, Xb80bs to review. These fit behind the ear very well even with my glasses on. I never have the feeling like they are going to fall off. Sony also send it with it's own pouch for storage and a micro usb charging cable, and four different sized ear bud ends. I love the bass response these headphones have with such a small foot/ear print. I really appreciate the NFC capabilities, you tap your phone on the headphones and the headphones power up and connect to your phone. Controls while listening to music and podcasts are easy to find and easy to use. Call quality is exceptional with out a bunch of background noise being picked up through the microphone. An absolute bonus is their splash resistant housing. I really can only find one negative, and I don't think it is avoidable, when the cable that connects the two earpieces rubs on clothing the noise is transferred into your ear. My resolution, turn up the volume. You can pick up a set of these Sony Xb80bs at BestBuy for $149.99.

I would suggest this item to a friend.

Thanks for taking time out of your day to read my Product Review. Check back, as there are always more product reviews in the works. Have a blessed week.

Product Review: Adobe PhotoShop Elements 15


I have not had a retail version of any photo editing software in a long time. I actually have used several different open source applications and have always liked the experience within them. That being said, this photo editing software looks to be complete, with nice easy tabs to navigate from a newbie's (Quick) perspective all the way to the Expert's perspective. I was easily able to crop and filter several different photos, as well as export them for the purpose I needed. When comparing it to what I am use to using, it seems to have all of the options and probably more, that I have not found yet. It will be fun experimenting with this application to find all of its hidden gems. I am certain I may only scratch the surface of what this software is capable of.

I would suggest this to a friend that would not be able to make open source work.

You can pick up this software, Adobe PhotoShop Elements 15 on sale right now over at BestBuy.

Thanks for reading my review of this software and have blessed day! Go here for other Product Reviews.
