Amazon Reviews: Episode 2, Part 1

Hi Guys….I had an epiphany. I guess I was watching one of the usual Youtube videos that I’m always watching and they started talking about the things we buy on Amazon and that most of us get all of out stuff on Amazon or online and sometimes we don’t know if what we’re getting is good or not. Yes we can read the reviews and those help but you still aren’t sure. So I decided to do my own Episode of reviews on the products I’ve bought through Amazon so if you were considering getting any of these you can get a better idea of how good the item is. I’ll do it in categories….and no I’ll also be posting other normal posts in between the Review Episodes. I’ll also put direct links to the products in case you want to see them on Amazon.

The Format of the Comments/Reviews:

I’ve bought lots of things and some of them have been really crappy and some I still use to this day. Unlike most countries sending back items for us here in Trinidad is a little more difficult and costly, so we tend to just accept the loss and dump the product as a mistake. So the categories I’m sharing here is: 1. Clothing & Shoes 2. Home & Garden – Episode 2, Part 1

So, lets get started….

These garden solar lights were nice!!!!! They worked well and had the garden looking very nice. They lasted about 1 year then started to fade a bit and finally some went off totally. It was a shame as they really made the garden look nice. I also liked that you got so many in one box. See them here: From 1 to 10 – I give this a 6 rating.

Heartland America Coach Style Solar Lights 2 Pack GET THEM HERE – I rank this a 5

  • Features clear lens, durable black post and ground spike.
  • 6.5″ x 6.5″ x 58″H (with spike).


These lights look nice with their street lantern type style. I had them in different positions in my garden. They didn’t last long. They are solar but the lanterns started getting water inside of the lamp itself and they wouldn’t stay straight when I stuck them in the ground. They tended to slant to the side but i sill liked them and i still kept them in my garden as they looked nice. I still have them in my garden to this day but they no longer light up, so they are basically decorative now. See them here: From 1-10 – I give this a 5 rating. One that is better and I am sure will last longer but in fact looks better is this lantern below:

Perky-Pet 135TF “Perky’s Finest” 16 oz Plastic Top Fill Hummingbird Feeder GET IT HERE – I rank this a 5 rating

I visited a house called Yerette which is for tourists and locals. They encourage hummingbirds by using at least 30 hummingbird feeders, scattered all around the house. They explain all about hummingbirds and what they are about, especially since Trinidad is the land of the hummingbird and our local name is Yerette which means hummingbird. Trinidad has quite a few breeds of hummingbirds at least 27 -30 types. From that visit I was so enthralled by the hummingbirds that I went out and bought at least eight (8) hummingbird feeders. I went a bit crazy but the effect was wonderful. The garden was filled with hummingbirds all over, it was s nice but keeping these feeders filled took a lot of work, because you have to make the syrup yourself.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is screenshot-2019-12-27-15.43.29.png

I loved this dress. I wore it only once though because it is very slim and it makes it difficult to walk normally. Plus I put on some weight so the dress started to fit a bit tightly so I had to s;it the side seam about24 inches close to my knee so I can walk properly. But I gave the dress to my daughter after I made the adjustments and I must say it looked exceptional on her. She looked soooo good i was jealous because It should have looked that good on me. AH WELL!!!! And this is CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE but there are others that are just as nice.

OK, I’m leaving some room for the other items in the other Episodes 2, 3 and the other. See you then.

Later guys. Sorry men…that there isn’t much here for you unless you’re looking to buy something for the lady in your life.
