Tong, Tong, Tong – Vivree Kitchen Tongs

A domestic goddess I am not (not a big fan of the domestic arts – and believe me it’s an art to craft some nutritious and delicious (not to mention photogenic) food nowadays. But I do love me some colorful kitchen gadgetry and I was lucky enough to try out the Vivree Kitchen Tongs613CBuwv2TL._SL1200_
I love the look of these lightweight but sturdy tongs. It’s vibrancy brings some nice color to the kitchen and love the little fleur-de-lis on the side. I like that you get two tongs in this set and I think it will work great when breading items (no sticky fingers).
I have another pair of silicone tongs from a celebrity line (she likes bold colors too) but these are superior in my opinion because you can actually open and close them. The silicone tips mean no more scratched pans and the high heat resistant material means no unwanted melting. Good buy.

Testing RFID Sleeves

Unfortunately, I have had my credit card hacked by unseen forces before and in this day and age it seems inevitable even with taking the utmost precautions. I have heard of RFID blocking cards and wallets but I had yet to give them a try because I was looking for something nice that would fit in with my accessories or at the very least not clash with them.  I was luck enough to try out two different types of RFID sleeves. Like RFID blocking cards or wallets it is meant to protect your personal information by blocking the use of radio waves to read and capture information on your credit cards and passports.

71obce3mDNL._SL1500_The first RFID blocking sleeve was this one from RFID Secure.* This packet comes with 10 credit card and 2 passport protectors. I did find the passport sleeve a tight fit, however the credit card slots fit easily.  They do fit in my bigger wallet nicely, but my smaller one is a little snug. I do like that you get several sleeves so all your various cards can be protected. Also the clean design means that the DH will also give these a try.

713oqHGK3KL._SL1166_The other sleeve I tried was from BLOCKIT RFID Products, Inc. * I do like the cute color and design options (something the DH may not appreciate)but these were a tight fit for my cards and they were hard to take out, which might be a good thing if I was looking to curb my spending, but not so good when you’re standing in a checkout line. I did try it with several different cards, but all had the same effect.  So that was a bit of a disappointment.

If you’re looking for safeguards for your credit cards RFID blocking sleeves are an easy solution.Of course it’s hard to gage how safe my cards really are without a hack test, but I think I’ll skip that one. Nonetheless it seems like a no brainer to give it a try.
