Hello there! You’ve landed on what is about to be one of the most interesting product review sites out on the internet (ok, maybe I’m a bit full of myself).
Sure, you can find a good hotel at TripAdvisor.com or read all of the reviews on Amazon products but, why bother? Here at UnSkewed Reviews, I use every product I review, have traveled to every destination reviewed, and will give my honest opinion on everything, whether you really want it or not.
If something was broken right out of the box, you’ll hear about it. The good, the bad, and the ugly will be posted.
So, bookmark my new site and stay tuned. I’m a women on a mission – to bring you the best review site possible!
So, Who The Heck Am I?
I’m Lori – the girl who knows what she wants and, well, sometimes, gets it.
What that means is that I buy a whole lot of stuff, evaluate it, and frequently give it away as stuff sometimes just doesn’t measure up. So, you’ll find my very honest reviews documented here – if I like it, you can rest assured that you will too. But, if I don’t? Beware….
As far as background, I was my elderly Mom’s caregiver for the last 5 years of her life – a time I so cherished. During my caregiving years, I started up my first website – GoodGiftsForSeniorCitizens.com. If you have an elderly loved one, head over there as there are some wonderful ideas for gifts you might not have thought about.
I also kept a blog (Gertie’s Galavants – Travels with a 95 year old) for the 5 years I cared for Mom, some of which is interesting reading, particularly if you’re a caregiver or know a caregiver. And, finally, I published a few e-books for the Kindle:
My next website came about because I’m, um, menopausal. I went online looking for a good cooling mattress pad, found it, bought it and spurred my website HotFlashMattressPad.com – gifts for menopausal women. I work on that site as symptoms allow….grin.
I also have a few more websites in the works such as GoodGiftsForRVOwners.com and GoodGiftsForBoatOwners.com. As of this posting (July 2015), both are up and running but a bit thin on content. I’m a’workin’ on it….
I’m the fiance to the most wonderful man in the world, John, who is 12 years my junior (yep, I wear my cougar badge proudly). After dating 7.5 years, we will be married June 15, 2016 – what would have been my Mom and Dad’s 75th anniversary. Yes, I met him online, and yes, love can find you at any age.
I spent most of my working life working in the biotech industry as a Data Manager (someone who ensures the data coming from clinical trials is correct). I am now, however, retired and loving life.
A lifelong lover of dogs, I have rescued, fostered, and found homes for a myriad of animals. Three of our four current dogs are rescues – our pug, Matee, came to me through John who had her before me!
So, in a nutshell, that’s me. I’m glad you found my little site and hope that you enjoy the reviews I’ve posted. I’d love to hear from you so drop me a line in the comment box below. Thanks. Lori
