Twisted Wares – A Twisted View for Your Kitchen

An Introduction to Twisted Wares plus a Giveaway

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.

dbest: Smart Cart Review

dbest: Smart Cart Review + Giveaway

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.

Each month when I receive the Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome by That Daily Deal.com my love of randomness is fulfilled. Each month no theme is chosen for this monthly box, but rather a selection of random gender neutral items that will undoubtedly meet a need of yours or a lucky recipient that you were unaware you had.

Get Some Sweet Sleep with Nectar Sleep

Best Bed Under $1000

Nectar Sleep provided me with compensation in exchange for this sponsored blog post. This post does contain affiliate links, but all opinions expressed here are my own

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.

The Cat Kit: The Summer Kit – August 2016 Review

The Summer KitSummer is a constant “on the go” time, if it is not the beach it is amusement parks, family gatherings and even overnight excursions. Many times with all this travel the cats are left and home, and while out of sight, they are not out of mind.

I am a cat lady and proud of it and even when we travel our cats are never far from our thoughts. I love to have cat items sprinkled throughout my daily life. I have a cat wallet that sits beside a cat umbrella in a cat bag. My girl Maggee is also my background on my phone as well as hundreds of photos on my phone.

Auromere Incense Review

Auromere: Flowers & Spice Incense Review and Giveaway

Auromere Incense Sampler packWhen I was a teenager many of my friends burned incense. I on the other hand did not know what these smelly sticks were, so I erred on the side of caution. As I got older, and presumably wiser, I realized that these sticks were simply a simple way to make your environment smell better. Now that I am firmly in my 4th decade of life I realize that these sticks can have some mental and physical benefits.

When I was recently at the Natural Products Expo and as I was walking around and I came upon Auromere’s booth and was halted by the wonderful smelling products that included not only personal care items such as shampoo’s, toothpaste’s as well as the incense I received after the show for review.

It’s THE Scoop By K-Kat Innovations Holiday Giveaway

It’s THE Scoop By K-Kat Innovations: 2015 Holiday Giveaway!!!

Promo Its the scoopI have mentioned in the past that of all the duties of cat guardianship there are, cleaning the litter box is my least favorite. I have found that there are advantages, albeit unconventional. The biggest advantage is that by the daily cleaning of the litter box you can make sure that your cat is using the provided facilitates in the proper intervals and proportions. The lessor, but equally important advantage is that the feline is indebted to you and gives you extra snuggles in appreciation of your sacrifice. Alright, maybe the reality is that they do not know who cleans their box, but it still has to get done.

Back in September, I had the opportunity to review a scoop that had it’s beginnings on Kickstarter. The it’s THE scoop by K-Kat Innovations is not the previous generation’s pooper-scooper. The it’s THE scoop is able to get the smaller particles that many other scoops leave behind, and does not create any litter dust, which is good for humans and felines. This scoop has made cleaning the litter box less of a chore and more of a challenge and adventure. I am enjoying seeing that no matter what the cats leave behind this scoop can handle it. I still think that this is MUST HAVE for all feline guardians!
