Tips and Ideas: Tiny Tips for Living in a Small Home + Giveaway

If there is any fact that is more true than not is that I am always looking for creative, functional and good looking storage. Since I live in about 800 square feet there is a constant need to find creative ways to find spaces and ways to fill those spaces with storage.

When I saw the storage solutions available from Lush Decor my mind went wild with the additional ways i could add storage and still have the overall esthetic that I want my home to have.

Socks for Pops – Father’s Day Sock Club Subscription Giveaway

Socks for Pops – 3 Month Subscription – Sock Club Father’s Day Giveaway – 2017

sock-club-collageWhen 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.

Wellspring: Grownup Notebook’s Review

Wellspring: Grownup Notebook’s (Coloring Books) Review + Giveaway

There are days when I spend most of the daylight and into the nighttime on the blog. I spend time learning and educating myself, as well as cultivating relationships and finding new products.

Since I spend so much time at the computer, I enjoy taking time away to clear my eyes and mind, and in those moments I like to color.

Recently I came across a coloring book that is a bit different from the other coloring books on the market – it is spiral bound. Wellspring has a variety of Grownup Notebooks that you can color.

Good Earth Beauty: Facial Cleanser Review

Good Earth Beauty: Facial Cleanser Review + Giveaway

Since I live on the coast, I deal with an ocean breeze almost daily. As the weather gets nicer and as I start to spend more time outside, my skin tends to dry out. I use moisturizer and try to keep my face away from direct breeze, but that is a challenge on the best of days.

When I recently was sent a Facial Cleaner from Good Earth Beauty I was curious if this could possibly help that yearly and often unavoidable dry skin.

Auromere: Ayurvedic Aloe Vera Neem Shampoo Review

Auromere: Ayurvedic Aloe Vera Neem Shampoo Review + Giveaway

When I was recently at the Natural Products Expo and as I was walking around I had the opportunity to puck up a couple samples.

One of the samples that I picked up was Auromere Shampoo, I loved the small sample I received, so when I was given the opportunity to review a full size bottle I was eager to see what a larger sample time would be like. The booth was busy and I was halted by the wonderful smelling products that included not only personal care items such as incense, toothpaste’s and shampoo, to name a few.

Enjoy Life Soft Baked and Crunchy Cookie Review

Enjoy Life Soft Baked & Crunchy Cookies Review and Giveaway

When ever I go to expo and food shows, one of the first things that I gravitate towards is the cookies.

As I have mentioned in the past I am a cookie monster and have met very few cookies that I do not like.

When I attended the Gluten Free and Allergen Friendly Expo I had the opportunity to walk through Enjoy Life Land by Enjoy Life Foods. The best way to describe the experience was it was like walking the yellow brick road with each step reminding walkers of the allergens that are not present in their products.

Nicks Sticks: Father’s Day 2017 Giveaway

Nick’s Stick’s: Stick’s for Dad Giveaway

One of the most difficult things I had to decide each year was what to purchase my dad for Father’s Day. My father is the type of father that has everything he needs, and there are few things that can be bought for him. Through the years I would make him items such as pencil holders and various art pieces. One of his favorite gifts was an album I made that was dedicated to our family dog, and this album is still a favorite.

There is no doubt though as he has aged, it is harder to think of things for him. As I got older there was always one “go-to” that included meat and nut items. I learned that if all else failed i could get him meat sticks and pistachios.

Since this has been a life long challenge for me I thought it would be nice to help you with your Father’s Day gifting with a Nick’s Sticks Meat Stick Assortment for the man in your life!

Smith & Vandiver: Spa..ah Foot Care Collection Review

Smith & Vandiver: Spa..ah Foot Care Collection Review + Giveaway

Summer is approaching, and if the increase in traffic near my coastal home is any indication, it will be a busy summer this year. Each year I use the surrounding area traffic to find out how busy the beach season will be.

As some readers know, I live only about 1/4 mile from the beach, and I see people walking the streets in flip-flops and bare feet daily. The thing that always makes me think is the toll that their feet must suffer from. Then when you add in the beach sand, the water and the walk back, the feet get the abuse.

When you add in the additional wear and tear of the daily use of the feet, there is no doubt that some pampering is not only necessary but essential. When I saw that Smith & Vandiver had an entire foot care line from scrub, fizzies, lotion and heel repair I thought maybe I can repair my often abused feet.

All Good Products: All Stars Set Review

All Good Products: All Stars Set Review & Giveaway

Let’s be honest, we are in a time when it is important that companies are environmentally responsible as well as being fiscally responsible. Many times companies donate a part of their profits, or sales to a cause that is relevant and important to their product category. When I attended the Natural Products Expo in March, one thing that I noticed was more companies are backing causes that are important to not only themselves, but their customers.

Being a resident of the coast, the ocean is something that I see and admire each day. There is no doubt that the ocean is as vast as it is large. Despite it’s massive size and power, it still needs us to take care and be aware of the issues that could potentially destroy it.

One company that I came across was All Good Products and their #ReefFriendly campaign. The basic idea of the #ReefFriendly Campaign is to spread awareness to make sure that the products on our skin, are also safe for the underwater reefs. With this added awareness I was curious to give their products a try, and see what makes them different.
