Holiday Giveaway: Croscill – Fulton Chocolate Quilt Collection

Keep Warm This Winter with a Fulton Chocolate Quilt Set – Review + Giveaway

Sleep is something that I value as an equal to my health.  I strive each night to get 8 hours each night and I limit wake-ups as much as possible. Each night I have a routine that I follow, and I keep it consistent to not disrupt my “shut-down” cycle. As a part of my routine is a couple of minutes reading and making sure my blankets are in the proper order.

The one thing that can shake me from my sleep is when I am cold. If I get cold, I get woken up I have a hard time falling asleep again. When the temperature drops I try to bulk up my blankets and comforters.

Earlier this year I got the a Crestwood Grey Quilt set from Croscill and love it, so when I had the chance to get the Croscill Fulton Chocolate Quilt with Shams for review, I was thrilled.

Holiday Giveaway: Revablend – Blending on the Go

Blending On The Go with RevaBlend – Holiday Giveaway

Earlier this year I had the opportunity to review the RevaBlend – Blending On The Go system.

Since that review, I have used this at least once a week to make myself a banana smoothie. I am limited on storage space, so having a cup that I can blend and then drink out of is ideal.

With the busy holidays approaching, RevaBlend is giving one winner a RevaBlend for their “blending on-the*go”

RevaBlend: Blending On The Go Review

RevaBlend: Blending On The Go Review + Giveaway

One of my favorite treats is a banana smoothie or shake. The problem with this is that they can be a bite labor intensive and consistency is important.

The other thing that I have been doing recently is blending my eggs for my omelets and making my own salad dressings. I have discovered that my creations can be much tastier than the items that I can buy in the store.

The problem I encounter often is that my blender is big, and not the most compact or convenient. When I recently saw RevaBlend – Blending On The Go the first thing I noticed was that did not rely on electricity and has its own contained blades, I wondered it it would be easier then the current blender I was using. .

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.

Brentwood Home: Wellness Bundle Review

Brentwood Home – Helena and Carmel Pillow Review + Giveaway

pillows-from-brentwood-homeThere is nothing that I love more than pillows on my bed! Ever since I was a kid, I loved getting new pillows, while keeping the older ones. When I had slumber parties, my friend knew to bring their own pillows because I was not good at sharing.

Even today I value my sleep time, and the addition of pillows adds to the overall comfort while I am sleeping. Generally I try to get anywhere from 8-10 hours, but honestly the average is closer to 6-8, despite my deep desire for the former. Recently I received a 4 pillows from Brentwood Home for review and from the moment I opened the box I knew these pillows would be different. Continue reading
