Silver Lining Abstracts Adult Coloring Book Review

Silver Lining Abstracts: An Adult Coloring Book of Art and Illusions Review + Giveaway

silver-lining-abstractsAs we are growing up we are told and led to believe that every cloud has a silver lining. What I always took this as was that despite how dark a cloud is, it still can sparkle. There are many days that I remind myself of this fact, and many times remembering previous sparkles in darkness helps as well.

When I received a copy of  Silver Lining Abstracts: An Adult Coloring Book of Art and Illusions by Blue Star Premier and Angela Covany the first things I thought of were all those dark clouds that had a silver lining after all.

Good Earth Beauty: Shower Whip & Scrub Sampler Giveaway

good-earth-beauty-1oz-samples-shower-whipIf there is something i have always been a fan of it is sampler packs. The appeal of samplers are that generally you get a smaller version of an item, without the commitment.

Whole Note Foods Muffin Mix Holiday 2016 Giveaway

Whole Note Baking Mixes – Holiday 2016 Muffin Mix Giveaway

whole-foods-muffin-mixesWhen i think of the the holidays, I think of a potluck style meal, where everybody brings their favorite side dish.

A couple of years ago I got over zealous and made over 7 different types of bread. I searched online, pinning boards and my bread recipe collection. I ended up making a couple of pumpkin bread’s, a couple of banana bread’s, a cranberry-apple bread, and a zucchini bread. The process was laborious and as one baked, another would be loaded into the oven.

Since that holiday, each time there is a potluck, I am the “official” bread baker of the family. With the added awareness of gluten sensitivities, my once simple bread making process has changed and I end up making 1/2 of the breads gluten-free.

With my bread making duties starting and the holidays approaching, I am looking for time-saving ways to create many loafs, minus the work. One way I have learned to save time is to purchase the “base” of the bread from Whole Note Food Company, and add the fresh fruits and vegetables to the mix prior to baking.

Good Job, Brain! Review

Good Job, Brain! Trivia, Quizzes, and More Fun From the Popular Pub Quiz Podcast Review + Giveaway

good-job-brainEver since I was a young girl I loved to ask questions, and one of my favorite books of all time was a question and answer book that covered every subject and topic. My favorite topic is “Pop Culture/Entertainment”, mostly due to the fact that I follow celebrity gossip.

Often times if friends or family have a pop culture related inquiry often times I am the one that they default to. When we watch movies, Jason will say “that actor who was in that other movie” and 9 times out of 10 I know the person or movie he is referring to. My specialty is late 1980’s, to the mid 2000’s.

When I received the book Good Job, Brain! Trivia, Quizzes and More From the Popular Pub Quiz Podcast by Karen Chu, Colin Felton, Dana Nelson and Chris Kohler for review I loved seeing a book based on pop culture trivia that I could answer.

Brentwood Home: Wellness Bundle Review

Brentwood Home – Helena and Carmel Pillow Review + Giveaway

pillows-from-brentwood-homeThere is nothing that I love more than pillows on my bed! Ever since I was a kid, I loved getting new pillows, while keeping the older ones. When I had slumber parties, my friend knew to bring their own pillows because I was not good at sharing.

Even today I value my sleep time, and the addition of pillows adds to the overall comfort while I am sleeping. Generally I try to get anywhere from 8-10 hours, but honestly the average is closer to 6-8, despite my deep desire for the former. Recently I received a 4 pillows from Brentwood Home for review and from the moment I opened the box I knew these pillows would be different. Continue reading
