The lovely people at CSN stores offered me $35 gift card to pick out whatever I wanted at CSN stores. I was stuck between a few items, but finally I settled on getting the HOMEDICS Neck and Shoulder Massager. I couldn’t wait to try it- I’ve been craving a shoulder massage for so long! : )

I opened the package and took out the massager. Pretty interesting! You can only use the heat part of massager if it’s plugged in, but there is the option of using batteries. Unfortunately, it didn’t come with batteries, so first I had to rummage the drawers in my house to find the pack of batteries. Luckily, I found them and put them in the compartment under the zippered exterior. Then, I tried it both plugged in and with the batteries after placing it on my neck. It was a tad bit big for me, but not too bad.

There are two options for the massage, a High and a Low, and I preferred the low, lighter option. When I put it on the High option, it almost kind of gave me a headache. The heat was a nice touch, although slightly annoying that you can’t use the heat with just the batteries, and needed the plug. It was a mild heat, which felt nice.

Overall, I would call this a neck massager, not a neck and shoulder massager. It did little really for my shoulder, and mostly concentrated on my neck. Although I can see it being helpful when neck pain is a problem. 2  stars.

Yes! It’s that time again- A GIVEAWAY!!! But first, a review of some tasty products!

Musselman’s Apple Butter-

Oh my goodness. This stuff is TOTALLY AWESOME! It was thick, brown and smooth, and had a great apple flavor. It was sweet, sweet like candy, and absolutely delicious. The cinnamon flavor was perfect, and I can’t even describe how tasty this was. I could totally (and did totally) eat it right out of the jar with a spoon. I can’t wait to stir it into hot oatmeal 🙂

This one gets 4 1/2 stars. Although it deserves 5 stars for flavor, and it is one of the most delicious products I have ever had, it  has both added sugar and High Fructose Corn Syrup : ( But, it’s still really awesome, so it gets 4 1/2 stars from me! : )

Musselman’s Apple Cider-

First things first, the person I was with said for me to shake this up, and I advise you to do the same. It was a bit piecy at the bottom, but nothing a little shake of the bottle couldn’t fix. First I tried it cold, and it was sort of like a watered down apple juice. Sweet but didn’t have that apple-y kick I’m used to with apple juice. So, the person who told me to shake it, also advised me to have it warm.

Great idea! This was much better warm than cold. It was sweeter, and had a very pure apple flavor,sort of like squeezing the juice right from the apple flesh. Mmm. 3 1/2 stars
