iHood Heated Vest + Jacket
iHood Heated Vest
I was sent iHood's lightweight heated vest to review and it's amazing (watch my full demo here)!! They make one with a detachable hood as well, but this one is without, just a cute puffer vest with 2 hidden zippered pockets on the outside, and 2 on the inside, with one of them holding the hookup for the 7V lithium battery it comes with. Charge the battery and it'll warm up your vest for hours!! You can control the heat right from the button on your chest - so convenient, and toasty warm with heating elements on the stomach, back, and neck. Water and wind resistant, and machine washable to boot! The vest is so flexible cuz you can layer under and over it as needed, keep your core warm and have full range of motion of your arms, which is great for horseback riders and other outdoor enthusiasts.

iHood Heated Jacket
iHood also makes a heated jacket which has independently controlled stomach, back, and neck heated zones with a 12V battery (which can also charge your phone) that inserts into an inner pocket and is controlled with the button on the chest! It's made of waterproof, windproof, scratch proof material, the hood and neck are fleece lined and so cozy! It has a million zippered pockets (8 outside, 2 inside to be exact), and a huge hood with a long brim you can fold back or extend out to keep rain and snow off your face, or cinch closed to keep the wind out.

Sealy Electric Heated Mattress Pad
Getting into a chilly bed in winter is the worst, am I right?! We are LOVING this Sealy electric mattress pad - not only does it warm up your bed for you but it's DUAL SIDED, so you can each control your side to the perfect temp (my husband doesn't usually use his, but I keep mine toasty from fall through spring, so it's perfect for us!!!). It also has a timer so you can keep it on all night or have it turn off after a couple of hours. Watch my full demo here, and buy it here (affiliate link):
ZONLI Electric Heated Blanket
This is a great electric blanket, whether you use it on the sofa, over your legs while working at your desk, as a bed comforter, or all of the above!! It's plush and cozy and SO WARM!

Feculs Space Heater
It heats up super fast, use the controls on the heater or on the remote! Have it on high or low or set a temperature for it to maintain. It has a timer, and tip over safety mechanism to cut off power. You can even use it without heat as a fan! It's so great for small spaces - heat up your feet under your desk or your bathroom so you're toasty warm before and after your shower! Watch my full demo here and buy it here (affiliate link):
Star Patio Tabletop Heater
No gas required - just assemble, put on top of your patio table, plug in and poof - warm hands and faces all around!! I love this Star Patio Tabletop Heater, they also make taller versions!

At the western end of Long Island, Brooklyn is a fantastic place for a family trip with all of the beaches and parks in the borough. It may be small, but it has the most people in the state of New York with over 2.6 million residents. Everyone has heard of the Brooklyn Bridge, but there is a lot more to Brooklyn than that.
Brooklyn has over 30 museums with a children’s museum, toy museum, and museum of food and drink that kids of all ages will love. And just a quick train, bus, or Uber ride away, you cannot forget the Empire State Building and Statue of Liberty! But you cannot bring your luggage, so drop it off at a Brooklyn luggage storage facility before starting to explore.
Between all these visits, you have to stop and eat. Shake Shack is a favorite for families with locations throughout Brooklyn and New York City. Stage Door Deli and Pizzeria in lower Manhattan has sandwiches, pizza, and all kinds of other yummy foods. And for dessert, go to Laboratorio del Gelato in NYC's Lower East Side (or New JerseY) where they have 15 kinds of chocolate and 40 flavors of fruit gelato.
