An Introduction to I and Love and You + A Giveaway
When I was young I thought that I would grow up and be a veterinarian. The biggest problem with this lofty plan was I could not stand to see an animal in any distress. Once the animal showed signs of pain, panic or discontent, I would react with tears and sympathy in abundance.
As a pet owner now I look for I look for companies that support the causes I believe in such as shelter adoption. The best is companies that also support animal welfare organizations and advocate for healthy and nutritious food options and in my searching I came upon I and Love and You.
The older I get, the more I want the things used in my home to be simple and pure. Each day I make an effort to more natural cleaners and remedies.
One of the things that I have come to rely on are essential oils and various blends. There are an unlimited number of combinations and a million remedies.
Given the fact that I have been experimenting with essential oils and blends, when I had the opportunity to review a essential oil set and diffuser from Wasserstein Home I was excited to give some new oils and a diffuser a test run.
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.
IllumiBowl: Motion Activated Toilet Night Light Review and Giveaway
As I have aged, I have discovered that I wake up more often in the night to use the restroom. At night, our house gets dark and often times lights are needed to walk around.
We have strategically placed night lights throughout my path to the bathroom and, if I am speaking honestly, even those can not assist me on my most tired nights.
Often times I get caught watching reruns of my favorite shows, and it was on one of these reruns I saw a colorful solution to this nightly problem. The IllumiBowl caught my attention to from the color to the simplicity.
I am a sarcastic person, and I normally have an opinion about anything and everything. Often times I let this flow into every aspect of my life. Lucky for me, I married somebody who is equally sarcastic as I am.
Given that sarcasm in our house is the normal, when we give gifts we like to infuse and ad that sarcasm when possible.
I am always on the look out for high quality, funny, and useful items to give as house-warming or hosting gifts. Recently a website called Twisted Wares was brought to my attention. Twisted Wares has witty, sarcastic and funny sentiments on household items such as towels, napkins, aprons, bags and pillows.
There are many advantages to living on the coast, but the one disadvantage is parking. Where we live each resident is allocated one spot that may or may not be in front of your house, depending on the spots numbering. What this means is that if you are a two car household, one person will be parking on the well-traveled and always busy 101.
The most difficult part of this parking situation is when you have items to carry to be brought home. Unless there is a way to carry multiple items, most times a walk down is necessary, as well as repeated a couple of times.
Given that this walk is uphill on the way back (the time when the items are the heaviest), I am always looking for an easier way to carry the items I will need while keeping my carrying load low. When I was recently watching my normal Friday night shows, I saw a potential solution – Smart Cart.
Dr. Jacobs Naturals: Shea Butter Liquid Soap Review + Giveaway
There are days when I want one soap that I can use on my hands when I need a quick wash, as well as being able to use as a body and face wash.
As I have mentioned before, castile soap is one of the most versatile soap’s and is able to have various other ingredients added, while maintaining the pure nature of castile soap. I have been lucky enough to review a range of Dr. Jacobs Naturals Soaps, including the Shea Butter Liquid Soap.
The best way to think of Shea Butter is that it is superfood for the skin, in addition to being naturally rich in vitamins A, E and F. Shea Butter also has UV protection and helps stimulate collagen production.
