First, I bought The Miracle TimeCube. I was introduced to it by Amy Landino, a YouTube vlogger that I follow. I thought it was a little silly, but I Had to have one. Just Had to! And I'm so glad I bought one. I can not believe how handy this little gadget has been. I have ten minutes to spare before I need to leave for work and I decide to spend them reading... Instead of spending five of those minutes fighting the timer on my phone, I simply rotate the TimeCube until the "10" is facing up. I want to do a five minute brain dump - I just turn the Cube to 5. I have used this little gadget so much in the week that I've owned it, I'm surprised I haven't already used up the batteries. I absolutely love this little gadget!
The next, or second, gift I bought myself turned out to be a worthless piece of garbage. If you're thinking about buying one of these silicone ice bucket molds, don't!
First of all, the mold is nowhere near as big as the advertisement makes it look like. It holds absolutely nothing! And as for those 120 ice cubes it supposedly holds....
|Most hail is larger than this ice cube!|
The cubes are tiny. Look how small they are compared to a normal ice tray. I've made ice in the mold three times and still don't have enough ice to fill a single high ball glass. And don't even get me started on how difficult it is to fill the mold with water without making a huge, giant, wet mess. In other words, this product is total cr*p! Do not waste your money on it.

And third or last, there may have been a yarn purchase. I couldn't help myself. I tried and tried to resist Sunstorm but the yarn fumes got to me. Besides, I needed something to make up for that ridiculous ice tray fiasco.
