Do you love all things Cup Noodles?

Well, if you do this may be right up your alley. It’s Cup Noodles Yahtzee. I don’t know anything about Yahtzee – I’ve never played it, but this version of the game has the look and feel of Cup Noodles. The scorecard, the dice and the cup are all noodle-themed and look like they’d be very fun for the Cup Noodle enthusiast.

This great collectible gift is perfect for fans of instant lunch ramen!

I just spotted this in a Buzzfeed list and I’m just shaking my head. Oh and it’s not because the product is weird or anything like that. It just goes to show that anything can be a thing. I can only imagine the joy a collector of cup noodle items and board game lover would have with this. Plus you might get some laughs, or weird looks, when people stop by your house and spot it in your living room.

So tell me, would you try this out? Do you have a Cup Noodle collection to add this to? OR do you have a fun collection of Yahtzee games to add this to?

I’ve got my eye on a mug warmer.

Have you ever made a cup of something – coffee, tea, cocoa, whatever – and forgotten about it? Have you ever felt bad about tossing it, so you try reheating it or drinking it cold? It’s not always pleasant, is it? Enter a little contraption called a mug warmer!

A mug warmer is a device on which you place your mug (glass or ceramic usually). with you preferred beverage. The heating plate will keep the contents of your cup warm and at a palatable temperature. That way you can enjoy your beverage, even if/when you get distracted by your daily tasks. I suppose, you could achieve the same objective by keeping your beverage in an insulated mug. However, I like mug warmers because they can fit various sizes of mugs, allowing you to enjoy a range of meals/beverages such as soup or oatmeal. Plus, if you are home, it’s less likely that you’ll pull for your travel mug.

This mug warmer has 3 temperature settings for you to choose from. It also has an auto-shut off feature, that turns it off after 4 hours of use.

This mug warmer allows you to choose from 4 temperature settings. It also shuts off after 4 hours.

This mug warmer comes with a low, flat-ish surface that expands its usefulness. You could probably fit a small plat on there to keep your snacks warm (think cookies or brownies). The retailer notes that you can use it to warm your scented candle melts!!

Most mug warmer options come as a stand alone product, however you do have some that come as a set with a mug included. A quick search over at Rakuten shows that you can purchase coffee warmers from various stores. They even show you how much cashback you will received. If you prefer to shop on Amazon, you know they will give you many options. Do you have a mug warmer? Is it really useful or does it end up as another of those things you buy and forget to use?

How do you feel about inflatable chairs?

I have been thinking about ways I could spend more time outside without leaving home. The simple solution would be go wandering around my yard (duh!) Its not a big yard but there is enough space for some fruit trees, a garden and a sitting area. I even have a patio! What I don’t have is a comfortable place to sit.

Unfortunately, my current residence isn’t a permanent one, and though I am not sure when I will be moving, I don’t want to have too much to move with. I don’t want to put down too many roots and then have difficulty leaving. So I have been looking into portable furniture items and then I came up on these …. inflatable chairs!!!

Maybe I am late to the party but I now love these things! They seem like so much fun, but more importantly they are very temporary. You can inflate them when needed and then deflate and store them when you don’t. You can take them from room to room or place to place, without much difficulty. I am in love!

I am a little worried about the quality of the plastic and having to inflate often but I am very intrigued and think they would suit me just fine.

I like this one but it seems kind of low and small. There are almost 2000 ratings on Amazon, a lot of which are positive. I just wish there were more pictures of it being used by adults.

I like this one because it seats multiple people. And it looks big enough to be really comfortable.

This one might be good for folks who actually want to do outdoorsy things, like camping etc. It might even work at the beach.

So friends, tell me if you have tried these inflatable beauties. What has your experience been like? Are they more trouble than they are worth?

Have you seen this building block mug?

I can’t say that I have spent much time with building blocks recently. To be honest, the most I’ve done is shop for Legos for my son for Christmas. Despite this, I do feel that building blocks are a wonderful toy regardless of age. It helps get the creative juices flowing and if nothing else, it can be a great bonding experience.

Anyhoo, during a bit of doom scrolling on Amazon I came across this mug. So what’s so great about this mug? Well, not only is it good for sipping your fave beverage, you can use your blocks with it. You can add blocks in no particular pattern or create a wonderful scene to accompany snack time. It is not a lego branded item but I gather that it works with blocks from various manufacturers.

I can see this being a great gift for any fan of blocks. I can also see it being a big distraction at meal time and being fought over if there is more than one block lover! So gift wisely.

How do you feel about bracelet flasks?

The trend to make everyday items multi-functional has increased over the past few years. Our phones are no longer just for talking. We can run entire businesses from them. Our watches no longer just tell time. They can now capture all manner of information about our health and fitness. Even our jewelry has dual purposes. They are no longer just for adornment, but they can get you help in an emergency.

Recently, I stumbled on this bracelet flask and I couldn’t help but wonder why is it a thing, while simultaneously thinking I really want it! If not already clear from the name, a bracelet flask is a piece of jewelry that also works as a flask. Its absolutely perfect for those occasions where you need to “discreetly” tote around a few ounces of a little somethin’.


Look at this one that I spotted over at Fancy.com. It’s really kinda cute. I love the blue one but the cork sticking out of the top is kinda weird. Also, it holds about a shot of liquor … which I suppose is enough to chug quickly, without looking too weird.

This one from Amazon, holds 2 – 3 shots and even comes with a funnel for easy filling!

How is that not a win?!


The bracelets can be found in a variety of looks. Some a plain while others are bedazzled! Some have rhinestone caps while others have wine cork looking caps. There’s something for everyone. After a bit of browsing, I must admit that this is an interesting little gizmo. I am not seeing a practical everyday application for this, but it may be a fun item to take along to parties and festivals and the like. It might even be a good conversation starter if you are in a spot where you may need a bit of help.

So Friends, let me know how you feel about this bit of functional jewelry! Have you ever seen one in real life? Do you or someone you know own one? Have you seen one of the other novelty flasks (lipstick, hairbrush, tampons)? Would you like one as a gift?
