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.
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.
Since I am a child of the 1970’s, I remember the days of easy toys. I am speaking of the days before computers, mechanics and complication.
Recently I went to the local toy store to peruse the isles, and chose a couple new toys for a friends child. As I was looking and walking the isles, I wanted something simple that would spark imagination. Those were my favorite toys when I was young, the ones that made me give a voice to, or a back story – basically using my imagination.
In this day of electronics and complication sometimes it is nice to go back to a simpler time and simpler toys. When I recently was approached by Dream Frenz for review, since I am all about the simplicity in toys I was eager to receive this.
Peaches & Petals Subscription Box – September 2016 Review
The concept of cute and I have never been something that fit together. I never considered things “cute” by societies standards and while that made me a little different from my peers, it also made me unique.
I believe that uniqueness is a quality that many young people are losing. People seem to be more concerned with going with the crowd rather than celebrating what makes them unique. There are many ways to be cute, while keeping your own individuality.
When I saw the September Peaches and Petals box I was happy to see a box that celebrates the concept of uniqueness. The boxes contents all revolve around the “Cuteness Overload” theme and are appropriate, and useful while always remaining in theme.
I am a lucky girl, overall Jason and I get along and agree on most issues other than one – the outdoors.
When Jason was a young boy his parents would take him on 3 week camping trip each year in Mammoth California. Each year this trip would be attended by friends and family. Cookouts each night, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for lunch and cereal for breakfast. There were even fresh pancakes with fresh picks berries.
I however, despite being a California girl, have never been camping. Well, that is not entirely true but my one and only camping experience included MRE’s (Meals Ready to Eat) and sleeping on hard rocks. To say that this was not a positive impression of camping that is a drastic understatement.
There have been conversation that have begun heading in the direction of my going camping and when I received this months Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome by That Daily Deal.com I felt like it was a sign that I should give camping a try! Each month no theme is chosen, but rather a selection of random gender neutral items that will undoubtedly meet a need in your life that you never knew was missing.
