EasyAcc: Mini 2 Portable Bluetooth Speaker Review + Giveaway

Some days the weather is so nice here that I take my laptop on the porch and I do my work. The only downside is that sometimes the silence can be echoing. It is those moments that I turn on music and it becomes my co-worker.

The downside to this is that the sound from my computer can be a little scratchy. When I recently got an email to review the EasyAcc’s Mini 2 Portable Bluetooth Speaker I was excited to see if this would improve my overall sound experience.

Nellie’s All Natural: Dryer Balls, Wash Soda and Melon Soap Review

Nellie’s All Natural: Dryer Balls, Wash Soda and Melon Soap Review + Giveaway

When I shop for products one of the first things that I look for is packaging. This past year my father went to the fair and picked up the cutest tin’s that were filled with laundry supplies.

The packaging was lighter colors, and the one I saw was shaped like a washing machine. The tin had a slit at the top, which makes the item the perfect piggy bank once the product inside is used.

I was interested in what the company was, and how in this disposable world, they decided to use tin packaging. The company was Nellie’s All-Natural and they were generous to send us a couple items for review.

If there is one thing that I have always valued, it is my sleep. From the time I can remember I have loved sleep and can get upwards of 12 hours at times. Sleep and I get along, and we get along well.

Sadly for my husband the opposite is true – he is lucky to get 2 hours in a row on any given night. The disparity in our sleep patterns are obvious and at times frustrating, I have begun the process of researching mattresses that are good for me, yet will also work for my insomniac spouse.

Dawn Ultra: Elite Super Premium Gloves Review

Dawn Ultra: Elite Super Premium Gloves Review & Giveaway

As a crafter my hands get abused constantly, despite mt best efforts to keep them safe.

When I work on projects I often use disposable gloves, which due to the flimsy nature, only allows for one use. I always reflect on what a waste this is, and always think I should invest in a more permanent pair for painting. When I saw that Dawn Ultra had a pair of gloves I was curious if a permanent pair really was the right idea.

Croscill: Crestwood Grey Quilt Collection Review

Croscill: Crestwod Grey Quilt Collection Review + Giveaway

If there is one thing I really love, it is a comfortable bed spread. Many years ago when I was young I would always change my comforter set. What this ultimately did was give me quite a collection of blankets and sheets for my friends to use when I hosted slumber parties.

Now that I have my own house, I am always finding the need for blankets and such. I still love to change my bed spread but it is much longer between upgrades than when I was young.

Recently I began the process of redoing our master bedrooms bedding. The process started with new pillows, than sheets and now the next element has arrived – the Croscill Crestwood Quilt with Shams.
