Gourmet Gift Baskets: Nostalgic Candy Gift Crate Review + Giveaway
If there is one way to describe me, nostalgic comes to mind. I love to see things from my youth, and have began a collection of old toys and advertisements.
One thing that always reminds me of my childhood is candy. I remember when I was young, my father would take me to breakfast each weekend, and while he sat and chatted with friends, I would go over to the general store in the same center and purchase a couple of pieces of candy. My choices were usually items that would give me more candy, for less cost.
When I was recently contacted by GourmetGiftBaskets.com, and took a little time to peruse their website, I was immediately struck with gift inspiration – the first thing that caught my eye was the Nostalgic Candy Gift Crate.
Good Earth Beauty: Shower Whip & Scrub Sampler Giveaway
If there is something i have always been a fan of it is sampler packs. The appeal of samplers are that generally you get a smaller version of an item, without the commitment.
When it comes to bath and body item, I believe that sample sizes are the way to go. There are many variables with body items, such as allergic reactions, skin sensitivities and most importantly, if you like the scent.
Recently I was sent the Good Earth Beauty’s Shower Whip & Scrub Sample Set and you also have an opportunity to win one for you to sample. Continue reading →
Brentwood Home – Helena and Carmel Pillow Review + Giveaway
There 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 →
It was always a dream of mine to have a dedicated craft room when I purchased my home. One part of my dream has come true when we purchased our home, and the second part came true when my husband said that our loft would become my dedicated craft room.
The craft room is about 12 feet by about 10 feet, with a lot of open wall space! Since it is my craft room, I decided to put things on the wall that either inspire me or that I have created. One of my favorite things to do is color, and I have been looking for a larger scale image I can color and then frame and display.
Recently I received a press release about a new product called ColorGrande and is was a DIY Fabric Design Kit. Continue reading →
If there is one thing that I find difficult during the holiday season is the annual stocking exchange. Each year my sister in laws shuffle names and we get to pick a name, and it is then our responsibility to fill a stocking with items for the recipient.
Sounds fun right? Well yes, it is but it is a task that comes with a bit of heavy responsibility to not disappoint the recipient.
Since my both of my sister-in-laws are into healthy snacks for their children I think I have found the perfect stocking stuffer that mom and kids will love – Crispy Green’s Crispy Fruit.
As we march into the holidays our thoughts are starting to turn to lists and options for gift giving.
I am not sure about you but I have always had such a hard time coming up with nice gifts that will be the perfect mix of useful and thoughtful. There really is nothing worse than being excited about giving somebody a gift that you are excited about, only to see the person crestfallen when they open the gift.
One way I have found that can reverse this disappointment is to purchase a gender neutral but useful gift. If you are looking for such a gift, look no further than Luxor Linens and their complete lines of sheets and robes.
