Peaches & Petals Subscription Box: January 2018 Review
The new year has firmly planted itself, and we are plugging along, moving all to quickly. When I received the January Peaches and Petals box there was no real theme, although it had a cold weather vibe to it.
“Winter Wondpurrland” –Cat Lady Box – January 2018 – Review + Giveaway
The days here have turned cold and wet, which means I have two cats that require more and more attention. While this takes from my day a bit more, there is nowhere else I would rather be. When I received the “Winter Wondpurrland” themed Cat Lady Box this month, all the items reminded me of the cat cuddles that cold nights of winter brings. Continue reading →
Keeping in the Heat with Heat Holders Review + Giveaway
Socks and blankets are my favorites. I am constantly on a search for the perfect socks- the perfect mix of comfortable, non-slip and durable.
Despite living in California, my temperature runs on the cool side, so each year come winter, I am cold. Keeping myself warm is my goal and daily duty during the winter months so I am on constant look out for socks, pants and blankets that will provide me comfort and keep me warm on those extra cold days – Heat Holders.
There are many things that pull at my attention throughout the day, the largest being the cats. When I say “the cats” really i mean Maggee. There is nothing that Maggee loves more than attention, and she will take it anytime and anyway she can.
One of her favorite things is to sit on our laps, with paw on the chest and head in prime position to bump into the chins of the humans.
I love this time with her and encourage it more than I probably should. A couple of months ago I started seeing a sweater for cat lovers called the KittyRoo Sweatshirt, Many friends had shared this with me, and after a couple of months, thought it time I get one for review.
Socks for Pops – 3 Month Subscription – Sock Club Father’s Day Giveaway – 2017
When I was young one of my favorite things to do was steal my father’s socks. Generally speaking they were larger and much softer then my socks, and inevitably lost in the abyss that was my own sock collection.
Now that I am older I feel the need to attempt to replace all those socks that I stole all those years before. I have found the easiest way to replenish this collection is with a monthly sock subscription.
It also happens that socks make the perfect gift for every father therefore I am thrilled to have the opportunity to give one reader a 3 month subscription to SockClub.
Socks for Spring – 3 Month Subscription – Sock Club Giveaway – 2017
Traditionally spring is know as a time to clean and organize. Each year I take this opportunity to clean and prepare. I my systems of organization. One task that I take on each year is my closet, and the items contained therein. Most of the items that hang are easy, since I turn hangers the opposite direction and if at the time of cleaning, I have not worn then I know with just a glance.
The most difficult is my sock collection, since I tend to stop matching pairs sometime mid September. The process is easy for the most part and involves me putting the sock on the bed, and searching for it’s mate. The best part about this is that I generally am able to combine pairs and find socks that I have not worn in a while.
Since we all like an easier way to get matched socks minus the cleaning, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to give one reader a 3 month subscription to SockClub
Admittedly I am not that hip on fashion as I would like to be, I value comfort over style on most days. Since I spent 90% of my time on my couch with a laptop the need for anything more than comfortable pants and a comfortable shirt is rarely needed.
Notice I used the word rarely, not never. There are some times when I need something more formal that outfits made of flannel and in those occasions I like to look nice while retaining the comfort that I am so used to. One of my top prioritize when looking for clothes is that I remain budget conscious – keep the cost vs. wear in perspective. The goal is to look nice while still feeling like I got a good deal.
When I was approached by online company Stylewe my first priority was to make sure that the items were budget conscious while remaining good-looking.
Feet Need Love Too – Valentine’s Day 2017 – Sock Club Giveaway
As we approach Valentine’s Day, it becomes a day of panic for many people. Gifts can be hard to purchase if you are in a new relationship or a seasoned 20 year relationship. I am a strong believer that these sometimes the simplest gift can be the most meaningful. Since I spend so much time in the house, it is a rare day that I wear shows. On the rare occasion I venture beyond my home, I make sure my socks are decorative.
I have mentioned that each time we are out and I see a new sock, I want to buy the socks despite my collection being larger than I can properly store. As I have mentioned in the past one of my favorite pairs that I have is a red and grey wool sock that I received last year.
Since I am a big believer that feet need love too during this universal day of love, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to give one reader a 3 month subscription to SockClub
Start the New Year on the Right Foot – Sock Club Giveaway
Since I spend so much time on the couch and at my desk I rarely wear shoes around the house. The one item I do wear every day is socks!
Each time we are out and I see a new sock, my instinct is to pull the trigger and buy the socks despite my collection being larger than most small countries. My favorites are socks that are not only comfortable, but also incorporate color and a pattern in a creative eye-catching way.
One of my favorite pairs that I have is a red and grey wool sock that I received from SockClub last year at this time. It is for that reason that I am excited about the Start The New Year on the Right Foot Giveaway.
I will be the first to admit that as a San Diegan, I see very little weather changes. Generally speaking the weather is 70’s and sunny – at least that is what people will make you believe.
While our temperatures are ideal, I must run cold because despite our ideal temperatures I am always cold. I can be outside or in my house and I am always cold. Since I spend so much of my time cold, I am on a constant search to find a jacket or sweater that will keep me cool.
When I recently was approached by a company called RefrigiWear I was interested by the claim they are the leader in cold weather gear. I decided to give their Women’s Fleece Jacket a turn
