Since I am a child of the 1970’s, I remember the days of easy toys. I am speaking of the days before computers, mechanics and complication.
Recently I went to the local toy store to peruse the isles, and chose a couple new toys for a friends child. As I was looking and walking the isles, I wanted something simple that would spark imagination. Those were my favorite toys when I was young, the ones that made me give a voice to, or a back story – basically using my imagination.
In this day of electronics and complication sometimes it is nice to go back to a simpler time and simpler toys. When I recently was approached by Dream Frenz for review, since I am all about the simplicity in toys I was eager to receive this.
USAopoly: Tapple 10 and Rollers Games Review + Giveaway
Our idea of an entertaining evening is sitting around the house, either playing games, watching a movie or playing on our respective computers.
When Jason and I first began dating we spent a lot of time around home and talking. We have been friends for years, and as we have gotten older we have discovered that we appreciate the simple art of staying home with the cats and playing a game.
Since we are spending more and more time at home, the need for new and interesting games is a constant thought. When I recently reached out to USAopoly to review a couple of their new games, I was excited to add a couple new games to our rotation.
Gourmet Gift Baskets: Chocolate Covered Christmas Pretzels Review + Giveaway
Recently I discovered the art of melting chocolate and the art of covering items in chocolate.
Shortly after I discovered this I attempted to make my own dark chocolate covered pretzels. To say it was difficult to make would be an understatement. The concept of putting sprinkles on the chocolate was way beyond my scope of abilities at the time. It was then I decided that i would purchase these in the future and not attempt to make these again.
When I was contacted recently from GourmetGiftBaskets.com, and saw their Christmas Pretzels I knew that I had to give these a try since they looked so much better than my feeble attempt.
This post has affiliate links but this in no way will influence the post to follow and all opinions are my own.
Each of these items on my list are items that I have either reviewed or own/use at my home with either myself or the cats. That being said, I would purchase any of these items for a friends and family 0 they are all great for cat ladies, cat men and everyone in -between. Impossible to go wrong with any item on this list.
If you are a cat guardian, cat fan or even just appreciate cats then you will love this feline take on the property board game called Cat-Opoly by Late for the Sky. This game has all the details that cat lovers will appreciate from the cat boxes (the homes) and the fish bones (the hotels). Each property is replaced with a cat breed and the values include each step of financial increase and the back of each deed contains fun facts about cats that are featured on the board. Its the traditional property trading game with some cat-astrophic twists included. Almost every major cat breed is represented in the property cards and this will give you and your cat friends hours of fun!
Gourmet Gift Baskets: Happy Hanukkah Oreo® Cookies Review + Giveaway
One of my favorite things when I was a teenager and I hosted slumber parties one of my favorite treats were Chocolate Covered Oreos.
Truth be told, I would deliberately make my friends think they were not good so that I would have more. This plan was 1 part genius and 1 part selfish and inevitably I would end up sharing despite my deep desire to hoard them to myself.
When I was contacted recently from GourmetGiftBaskets.com, and saw their Happy Hanukkah Oreo® Cookies I was reminded of those moments of indulgence.
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
The idea of monthly subscription boxes is not new. These monthly mailbox surprises have had many incarnations including the well known “of the month” clubs.
Today boxes tend to fall into 1 of 2 categories: Commerce commerce and Discovery commerce. The Convenience Commerce boxes are for the items you know and love and have to have them each month. On the other side you have the Discovery Boxes. These boxes exist to allow customers to discover new items that they otherwise may not have been introduced to. The boxes that we tend to review here are the Discovery boxes.
Here are my top x boxes that we received in 2016, and are excited to continue receiving in 2017.
