Sterling Silver Small Hoop Earrings by Silver Masters

 Get a pair on Amazon

Who's wife doesn't like earrings? No hands? Mine doesn't go crazy over jewelry but something new is always fun and these a a nice addition to any outfit.

The first thing you'l notice is that they're smaller than you thought. I'd say they're just over a half inch wide but a little under 3/4. It means they're more for someone trying to add to a look instead of draw everyone's attention to the earrings themselves. The metal is just soft enough that when we found one side wouldn't latch I was able to bend the post out a bit so it reached the latch on the other side. Don't worry; you won't be crushing them but that's the nature of the materials. Something to note is that the posts are not round but more of a rectangle. My wife had a little trouble getting them through her ears the first time but told me once they were in they we're very comfortable. She also pointed out that she never sleeps in earrings but so forgot about these and had no trouble sleeping on them all night.

If you or your significant other are looking for something the looks nice but won't break the bank you could do far worse. I think it wouldn't hurt if they could make the ends a little more round to make putting them in a little easier and have a little more solid latch but we liked them overall. I received this product at a discount in exchange for nothing more than my honest opinion.

Magnetic Child Cabinet Locks

I've seen these locks around on different things but it turns out we have a toddler who loves getting under the sink so why not use them as intended. Nobody wants anything that is visible from the outside but other solutions tend to be clunky. We'd even resorted to just using some of her toy c-rings as a makeshift "lock". Once these were installed though she quickly learned that she just can't get in and rarely even tries now.

Installation was simple. As you can see form one of my pictures we already had one other failed product that had broken so I just placed the stationary part at the edge right where the door would hit. As long as you back it right up to the edge everything will line up. You can measure to figure out where to put the magnetic part but I found it was just easiest to reach around form the other door and line them up before pushing the sticky side against the door.

If you install correctly there is little to no movement of the door while locked and if you can't remember exactly where to place the magnet you can just slide until you hear the click of the latch falling. The adhesive is plenty strong enough that anyone trying to get in who shouldn't will give up long before it gives out. We just keep the magnet on the fridge so we don't have any worries about losing it. What else can I say; keeps our daughter out and lets us in while being completely invisible. No complaints.
