Danze Showerhead Review and Sweepstakes (ends 6/30)

Danze 503 Shower head

We just purchased our first home a little over a year ago and ever since, it has been one renovation after another. Because we spend the least amount of time in the bathroom, it's the last area of the house to be completed. Right now our bathroom is ugly. The floors are still concrete and the wall is a paneling that we painted over. The genius who built the house put a window in my shower..seriously, a window. So my bathroom, in a word, is a hotmess. Bathroom renovations can be expensive and … [Read more...]

{Review} Scrubbing Bubbles One Step Toilet Bowl Cleaner

scrubbing bubbles one step

  I don't know about you but the bathroom is one of my least favorite places to clean although it's one room in the house I insist is spotless. My LEAST favorite thing to clean? The toilet! I look like a model for hazmat when it's time to clean - gloves to my elbows, wand in hand, breathing mask (if they would give me a suit, no doubt I would wear it). However, with Scrubbing Bubbles awesome new product: One Step toilet bowl cleaner, I use nothing more than a tap of my foot to clean my … [Read more...]

{Review & Giveaway} Shenzhen Knives: 6″ Ceramic Chef’s Knife (ends 12/20)

Shenzhen Knives: Affordable Ceramic Knives

I love food and I love to cook. I'd say about 90% of the food we eat in our house is something I've made from scratch. As such, there are 2 items in my kitchen that I always splurge and spend the extra dough for quality on - cookware and knives. A dull or "cheap" knife is probably my #1 pet peeve in the kitchen! I was recently asked to review a Chef's Knife from Shenzhen Ceramic Knives. These ceramic knives are made of an advanced ceramic called zirconia, the second hardest material known to … [Read more...]

{Review & Giveaway} Sleep Innovations Rejuvenation Memory Foam Pillow (ends 12/9)

Sleep Innovations Rejuvenation Memory Foam Pillow

I've always been the kind of person who likes their bed to be like a fluffy cloud.  I don't do well with firm mattresses and I can't even remember the last time I used a standard filling, non-goose feather pillow.  I love my soft, smooshy, feather pillow so much that I usually take it with me when I travel. So when Sleep Innovations asked me to try out their new Rejuvenation Memory Foam Pillow - I was happy to oblige since I LOVE my Sleep Innovations 12-inch Sure Temp Memory Foam Mattress BUT … [Read more...]

LG’s Air Your Dirty Laundry and Come Clean for a $250 American Express GC (ends 11/28)

lg front load washer

As far as chores go, one of my least favorite to do is definitely laundry.  I don't have a problem with actually DOING the laundry, its the PUTTING AWAY of the laundry that gets me.  It literally will  sit on my bed for a good week in a nice flat pile waiting for me to hang or fold it up and put it away.  Sometimes the "clean" pile only gets put away out of necessity to make room for another "clean" pile, fresh out of the dryer. I'm sure I will have to modify this habit as soon as my son is old … [Read more...]

{Review} Kirkland’s Christmas Stocking Holder Stand

Screen Shot 2011-12-02 at 1.19.46 AM

A couple of years ago I splurged and bought really cute embroidered stockings for our whole family. But, until Kirkland's sent me this Santa's Sleigh Stocking Holder, I had no idea that stand alone stocking holders even existed! We had been draping our stockings over the side of our couch for years (for lack of a fireplace by which to hang them with care). We never got our stockings out until Christmas Eve night, and I was always a bit sad that no one, besides Santa and ourselves, got to see … [Read more...]

{Review} Hoover Tempo Widepath Vacuum

Hoover Tempo

My husband and I were both 21 when we got married. He was in the beginning of his first semester of college and though I was a few semesters in, I was still a full time student. Money was tight and we started our married student life together living in half of a small basement. I would guess it was about 450 square feet. I wish I were exaggerating. The good thing about living in that tiny of a space is that we could do all of our vacuuming with the Dustbuster we had inherited from my parents … [Read more...]

{Review & Giveaway} Sleep Innovations Queen Size 12 Inch Sure Temp Memory Foam Mattress $599 (ends 10/8)

sleep innovations 12 inch mattress

If my Sleep Innovations 12-inch Sure Temp Memory Foam Mattress were a tall, dark and handsome man (preferably named Ben), I'd marry it. As it is, I'm perfectly happy just sleeping with it every night instead. And Ben doesn't seem to mind (probably since he and Whistler sleep with it every night too). What's so special about this mattress you ask? Well, here are just a few reasons it gets brownie points... - Resistant to dust mites and naturally antimicrobial. - Fire Retardant barrier … [Read more...]

With our new house came a new bedroom with newly painted walls, and newly built bed and built-in cabinets.  So, naturally, our *old* duvet cover needed to go.  Lucky for us, the lovely folks over at Green Earth Bamboo have a beautiful line of viscose from Bamboo Duvet Covers to choose from. Having already tried the Cleo Gown from their Bamboo Clothing line last year, I was super excited to try a duvet cover from this same, lovely material. 100% Viscose from Bamboo - super … [Read more...]
