BEDTIME BLISS Sleep Mask, Ear Plugs & Carry Case Review


I’ve always wanted to know how some women, okay mostly movie stars and models in racy perfume ads, manage to leap out of bed with cascading waves of perfectly tousled hair and makeup that looks like it was freshly applied by a three-man stylist team just moments earlier. While I still haven’t cracked the secret […]


Heat Resistant Grill & Oven Gloves Review


During the summer we basically live outside, gardening, hiking in the woods, and hanging out on the deck where I can keep an eye on the kids and the dogs tumbling past in one whirlwind ball of fur and skinny bare legs. Basically I have no desire to go inside to cook, which only heats […]


Adovia Exfoliating Facial Sea Salts- Dead Sea Salt Exfoliating Crystals Review


With summer here, I like to forgo wearing a lot of heavy makeup and really let my skin shine on its own. That’s why not only moisturizing, but also exfoliating are extra important steps in my skincare routine. Having tried and loved other Adovia products, I was excited to test out their Exfoliating Facial Sea […]

DownBeats High Fidelity Hearing Protectors Review


I received these High Fidelity Hearing protectors from DownBeats just in time for the 4th of July. Since we have our own fireworks display, along with loud music and a large group of friends and family, this seemed like the ideal time to test these out! The fun thing about these hearing protectors is that […]

17b27df08232083ae7215320a9822fb0.image.319x384 Handmade Oil Paintings. Win One of Three $25 Vouchers!


Artisoo is such an interesting concept to me. I love art, and learning about the history and techniques of the masters. However, I’m unlikely ever to be able to afford real paintings by any of the artists I admire- at least in the near future. I’m limited to prints (which are still beautiful) and hoping […]


Aquagenix® Fusion Moisturizing Hand Shower Review and Giveaway! Ends 7/25


Some of you are aware of one of the great loves of my life: bubble baths! However, with a house full of girls and a busy schedule, I don’t always have time to indulge in the full bubbly bath ritual. Especially dashing in after working out, or getting grimy in the garden, sometimes a quick […]


Propresser Stainless Steel Garlic Press Review


I don’t understand people who don’t love garlic. I have to assume they’ve only been exposed to inferior, dried up versions from dusty old store shelves. For me, the tingly bite of fresh garlic or the complex smoothness of roasted garlic are taste sensations beyond compare. I suppose some are turned off by the odor, […]


Eye & Mighty Eyelash Curler Review & Giveaway!


When I mentioned to one of my friends that I was going to review an eyelash curler, she asked what I feel is an extremely valid question: “Is there really any difference between eyelash curlers?” I told her I think there definitely is and after testing out the Eye & Mighty Eyelash Curler,  my opinion […]
