The older I get, the more I want the things used in my home to be simple and pure. Each day I make an effort to more natural cleaners and remedies.
One of the things that I have come to rely on are essential oils and various blends. There are an unlimited number of combinations and a million remedies.
Given the fact that I have been experimenting with essential oils and blends, when I had the opportunity to review a essential oil set and diffuser from Wasserstein Home I was excited to give some new oils and a diffuser a test run.
IllumiBowl: Motion Activated Toilet Night Light Review and Giveaway
As I have aged, I have discovered that I wake up more often in the night to use the restroom. At night, our house gets dark and often times lights are needed to walk around.
We have strategically placed night lights throughout my path to the bathroom and, if I am speaking honestly, even those can not assist me on my most tired nights.
Often times I get caught watching reruns of my favorite shows, and it was on one of these reruns I saw a colorful solution to this nightly problem. The IllumiBowl caught my attention to from the color to the simplicity.
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.
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.
I am a firm believer that each day should have an element of pure randomness and fun. This can be from paying it forward to the person in front of you or this could be a visit from an old friend. The best way to have some randomness is in the mail – each day is different and sometimes random and a surprise.
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.
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.

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.

Mini Monthly Box of Awesome – December 2016 Review
Whew! December is over, and we are now in a new year filled with hope, dreams and goals.
As we enter the new year, I am making it a goal to send people more happy mail and to commemorate the special events in our family and friends lives. Since the mail used to contain marriage announcements and baby announcements and have been replaced by group messaging, sending a card can make a lasting positive impression.

Summer 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.
Since I love getting cat related items as much as my cats enjoy getting toys, I was excited to be given the opportunity to review The Cat Kit, The Cat Kit is a filled with 7 adorable items for cat and human and really is “purrfect” for any cat lover.
