Summer is About Pops of Color

This post was created in partnership with eAccountable. All opinions are my own.

Sometimes changing things up and giving a new fresh look to your space is as easy as adding a pop of color.
Spending time entertaining or relaxing in your outdoor area should be a huge part of your summer days and nights. And nothing enlivens that outside living space like pillows. You can change the entire look with fun, modern, graphic, bold pillows that also add that touch of flair and comfort. Mix, match, play with color. You can’t go wrong – especially once you add family and friends.
You can also add some beach-inspired towels to help perk up your bathroom. They’re also a beautiful addition poolside. Wrap yourself in luxurious comfort with soft, beautiful, absorbent towels that add subtle nautical flair with stripes in muted colors.
But it’s not just about your outdoor space. A simple, breezy tablecloth with an unexpected dip dye look adds an unexpected splash of whimsy to your dining experience. Casual, yet elegant, this modern tablecloth is perfect whether you’re dining indoors or entertaining alfresco.
These easy updates from ShopNineSpace.com have bold impact and give you that fresh, updated stylish feel that come with summer.

Nothing more refreshing than ice tea on a hot day!

I received this sample of Comfort Tea by Culinary Teas at a greatly reduced price for my honest review. All opinions stated in this blog are entirely my own.

Its HOT and it has been hot for 4 days in a row! I'm talking 98 degree stinky sweaty sticky dirty hot. When you have no air conditioning and have to rely on fans, being hot can make you downright moody. Ok lets be real here.... this kind of hot makes me bitchy! I can't sleep, I don't want to eat, and I cannot get comfortable even after a cold shower! I do not like it when it is hot!

Today I got a sample of Comfort Tea made by Culinary Tea's to review. Last thing I want to do on a stinky hot day is brew hot tea to drink. I love tea, don't get me wrong but to me tea is a cosy up on a cold day drink. But being the diligent reviewer that I am, I ponied up to the tea kettle and boiled my water. I opened the package and the floral scent hit my nose immediately. It has a very delicate aroma and very pleasant. My mood lifted a little because it really does smell nice.

Then I stopped to look at the leaves as I measured them into my tea infuser. There are so many different colors like orange, and yellow and green and purple. It reminded me of dried flowers and I started to get excited to taste it. But grrrrr it is so hot in this house and I do not want hot tea! I poured the boiling water into my cup and added my tea infuser when it hit me! Why not get some ice and pour the hot tea over it and make iced tea? Well as you can see in the photos that is exactly what I did!


This tea is so light and delicate that it made an excellent iced tea! It has a slightly flowery taste that goes well with the aroma and it isn't the least bit bitter. I really am enjoying it. I'm sipping it right now as I write this review. Of course the ice melted within a minute or two but I still feel refreshed and more calm. This is an excellent tea that I am sure will be just as comforting when it is a cold rainy day or I am having a hard day and want to pamper myself. You can purchase this tea  at http://culinaryteas.com/collections/herbal-teas/products/comfort-blend-herbal-tea and if you use the code TEAGIFT they will give you free shipping on your first order.

Durable Bright 2-in-1 LED Work Light Flashlight by Aennon


I received this worklight/flashlight at a reduced price for my honest review. All opinions stated in this video and blog are entirely my own.

This light is great for anyone that needs a bright working area. The LED lights really shine and light up the area. It swivels so you can angle the light to exactly where you need it most. It also has a hook at the top so you can hang it like a drop light or a lantern. It would be good for camping, hiking, or in the car for any emergency that pops up. You can stand it on the ground and pivot it so you can see those lug nuts in the dark when you need to change a tire or use the flashlight to shine under the hood to see what is wrong with your car. Or if you run out of gas, you have a light to show you the way to the gas station.

Home and the power goes out? You don't have to sit in the dark because you have this bright light to keep you safe. And it runs on just 3 AA batteries. They even give you the first three with your purchase so you can open the box and use the light from the beginning!
I think this is one of those things you just must have. I would even say you need more than one so you have it in the car and the house and on a boat if you own one. You can get this light on Amazon at this link http://www.amazon.com/Flashlight-Batteries-Included-Perfect-Outdoor/dp/B00VQC1SQQ/ie=UTF8?m=AXETF2WISHGD4&keywords=led+work+light

#1 Detangling Hair Brush - For Wet Or Dry Hair

I received this hairbush at a greatly reduced price for my honest review. All opinions stated here are 100% my own.

This hairbrush by SHOSH is one of the best I have ever used. When I first got it, I wasn't impressed because it is small. I looked at it and the first thought I had was "This is a little kids hairbrush". But what it lacks in size it makes up for in the way it works. I was thrilled at the way it went right through my hair.

I have very long hair. It reaches almost to my rear end and most days it can be a real pain to take care of. It gets in my food, when I sleep it wraps around my neck, and it tangles so easily! There are mornings when I literally cry when I brush or comb my hair because it hurts so much. Also, having long  hair means I have a lot of breakage. Any given day my bathroom floor looks like a war zone with all the hair on the floor. I have noticed that  besides unsnarling my hair pretty painlessly, the breakage has dropped.

This is a small size brush so it can fit in almost any purse or backpack you want to put it in. It has a nice mirror on the back side so you can check your look and spruce up any time you want. It is good for both adults and children. I liked it so much my roommate went out and got herself one as well. I think this is a must for anyone with problem hair because it does it's job and it does it well.

A pillow can be comforting away when you are away from home!

I received a pillow complimentary in exchange for my review. All opinions are my own. Yes, I know that sounds funny but I am one of those people that are uncomfortable sleeping anywhere but my own home. If it is a motel that doesn't have the best of ratings, that just compounds the situation. We were in Lake Tahoe California this past weekend for my niece's wedding and the motel we were staying had had some pretty bad reviews. I mean the average number of stars for this place was a 1 out of 5 so I was pretty leery.

In all fairness, the motel was fine! It is an older one so yes, it wasn't perfect, but we decided it was just a funky quirky place and I actually ended up loving it. But, because of the reviews, especially the ones talking about dirty sheets and yellow pillows, I decided to bring my own blanket and my own pillow. I chose to bring my Smarter Rest Memory Foam Pillow because it was easy to pack and it was something I had been using for a few days so I was used to it. I was so happy that I brought it with me.

Almost as soon as I put my head down on it, I was asleep. It is comfortable but it also supports my head and neck in ways my regular pillow dosen't. I love that I don't have to constantly squish and lump it to find a good spot for my head, and that it stays cool. There is nothing like a hot pillow under your face! So even though our bathroom window kept swinging open all the time and the tv was missing the remote so we were stuck with HGTV, I had my pillow and got some good sleep. I would go stay in the Sun and Sand Resort ( google it but ignore the bad reviews) in a heartbeat and I would take my Smart Rest pillow with me.

http://www.amazon.com/Memory-Foam-Pillow-S…/…/ref=sr_1_2252…  Check out the pillow for yourself. You will really love it.

Cricut makes crafting easy with TWO different machines

**This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking through my links.

Want the ability to easily make a personalized wedding gift or perhaps some unique home d├ęcor? Then you might find Cricut electronic cutting machines to be the best DIY crafting tool since the sewing machine.

There are two machines that Cricut currently offers on their site:

Cricut Explore One™

Cricut Explore One™ is a simple design-and-cut system. It’s versatile, easy to use, cuts very precisely, and is also incredibly affordable. With its irresistibly low price and limitless cutting potential, the Explore One is perfect for a new or beginning crafter. Here are a few notable features of the Explore One:

Materials – All Cricut machines can cut an unbelievable variety of materials, for example:
  • Paper
  • Vinyl
  • Iron-on
  • Craft materials
  • Upcycled materials
  • Fabric
  • Plastic
  • Thick materials
Precision - Features Cut Smart™ technology, which allows you to cut a wide range of shapes and sizes with exceptional precision, from ¼" tall up to 11½" wide x 23½" tall.

Smart Set® Dial - Each machine features a Smart Set® dial, which sets your settings (e.g. speed, pressure, etc.) for you so you don’t have to keep track of them. You just select the material that you're using on the Smart Set® dial and the machine's Cut Smart® technology will deliver a clean, professional cut.

Images and Fonts - You can upload your own images and fonts for free on all three Cricut cutting machines.

Cartridges - Both machines work with any Cricut cartridge and have the capability to hold all of your cartridges “virtually” in the cloud within your Cricut Design Space online software. So once you’ve loaded a cartridge, you’ll have it everywhere you go.

Cricut’s Design Space™ and iPad® app - All Cricut Explore machines work hand-in-hand with Cricut’s Design Space™ (for PC, Mac®, iPad®, and iPhone®) that you get access to for free.

Cricut Explore Air™

The Explore Air is the whole kit ‘n caboodle. It offers all the impressive features mentioned for the Explore One, but two key things set it apart:
  1. It has a dual carriage for cutting and writing or cutting and scoring in one step. If you do a lot of paper crafting, this is the machine for you!
  2. It has built-in Bluetooth® capability. You just use Cricut’s free iPad app and design anything you want from your iPad, just like you would on your home computer, but with the convenience of being able to take your projects with you anywhere. Then, you can just wirelessly send your project from your iPad to your Explore Air to bring it to life.
Now that you know a lot more about how Cricut Explore® machines work, I’ll focus next week’s post on how you can design here, there and everywhere with Cricut Design Space. You’ll be blown away by how easy it is.

Until then … Happy crafting!

Calling all Crafters! Cricut has what you need for super papercrafting and more!

**This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking through my links.

If you’re reading this post, chances are, you’re a creative type. You like to craft, explore your creativity, and share your creations with others. And it’s for people like you that Cricut created their line of personal electronic cutting machines.

A little known fact about Cricut is that they’ve actually been in business for over 50 years, and their primary purpose has been to develop tools that inspire creativity in people.

Today, millions of people use Cricut’s award-winning products to create beautiful, inventive, and personal projects.

So, what is Cricut? Cricut is actually a family of electronic cutting machines that make it possible for you to easily create amazing do-it-yourself (DIY) projects. Well, not totally DIY because Cricut’s incredible machine’s do a LOT of the heavy lifting.

The two machines that Cricut offers are:

To give you loads of creative freedom and versatility, Cricut developed the Cricut Design Space™, a cloud-based software that works seamlessly with the Cricut Explore® family of machines.

Design Space gives you access to all of your images and projects from any compatible computer or iPad, so you can design just about anything, anytime, and anywhere.

Once you’ve uploaded your design (or pre-designed image) to your Cricut Explore cutting machine, you can sit back and watch it magically bring your design to life.

There are so many interesting things you can make and do with Cricut – which we’ll be sure to cover in a future post. But before we get too ahead of ourselves, it’s best to go over each of Cricut’s machines, what they do, and how they are different. And since I’ve given you quite a bit of info already, we’ll pick up on there in next week’s post!

Until then … happy crafting!

Elimidrol Opiate Withdrawal Supplement


The "Solution" To Tough Opiate Withdrawals?
Elimidrol-The Way To Significantly Alleviate Opiate Withdrawal Symptoms
A scientifically formulated supplement to help you overcome opiate withdrawal-WITHOUT risking dependence on other drugs.
A Tough Nut To Crack
As any doctor will tell you, most traditional opiate withdrawal methods come with risks. To wean the patient off of their opiate habit, they need to put them on a "safer" opiate like Methadone. This method has a high level of success, but for many people, the treatment will become addictive in itself.
It's a conundrum that has left some opiate users asking the same question for decades:
Is there any way to kick this addiction-without the horrible anxiety, sleepless nights, depression, restlessness, aches, vomiting and the rest of symptoms that come with quitting opiates-without risking dependency on another drug?
This is the problem that Sunrise Nutraceuticals set out to solve with Elimidrol.
Elimidrol - Opiate Withdrawal Relief...Without Opiates
Elimidrolis an opiate withdrawal formula that reduces the pain, anxiety, mental anguish, emotional imbalance, irritability, restlessness, aches, and all the other mental and physical symptoms of opiate withdrawal with a non-addictive formula.
It's a task that has confounded addiction specialists for years.
But if Elimidrol's early results are an indication, Sunrise Nutraceuticals has created the solution.
Elimidrol is a:
  • Non-addictive...
  • Non-habit forming...
  • Potent...
  • Soothing...
  • Highly effective...
  • ...Detox-based solution.
The main issue with opiate withdrawal is, and always has been, the extreme mental and physical discomfort (to put it mildly) that comes with withdrawal. It's the anxiety, depression, sleeplessness, irritability, emotional imbalance, restlessness, cramps, aching, bowel irregularity, and so forth that send the sufferer coming back for more.
The Best Ingredients In The Business
Elimidrol helps you get over this tough withdrawal period by providing a combination of potent and effective ingredients known for helping with opiate withdrawal symptoms: And it shows!
Elimidrol is the only opiate withdrawal product guaranteed to work, and backed by a 100% money back guarantee. Elimidrol provides a level of potency that is unmatched by any non-opiate product in the industry, and has a success rate commensurate with the quality of its ingredients.
People who have tried Elimidrol have reported high levels of success in their recovery, along with major benefits like:
  • Positive mood
  • Comfort
  • Calmness
  • Calm, sustained energy
  • Emotional stability
  • Deep restful sleep
  • Overall relief
Elimidrol comes in both daytime and nighttime formulas, to provide 24 hour relief. Reviews so far are overwhelmingly positive, with many people reporting that this was the one product that finally worked for them.
Elimidrol is a fresh approach to overcoming opiate withdrawal that's sure to help you reclaim your life.

Summer Lovin for Fido or Freda too......

I received these travel dog bowls at a heavily reduced price for my honest review. All opinions stated here and in my slide show are entirely my own.

Summer is coming fast and so is the heat. Kids are out of school and vacation plans are being made. Summer is for outdoors right? I mean you think of summer and images of camping, hiking, beaches, lakes, fishing, walking, and just enjoying nature come to mind. Most of us that have pets think of them as family members and want them to get the most out of the outdoors as well. Some use sunscreen on their white dogs, we all take our leashes and make sure our pets have their tags, shots, and flea meds before we go. But what about food and water? How do you take that along with you? Do you lug their bowls from home? Those bowls can be bulky and take up a lot of room in the car or in the backpack. The answer is right here...  http://www.amazon.com/Dog-Collapsible-Premium-Superior-Convenient/dp/B00Y1LHJIU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1433289849&sr=8-1&keywords=travel+dog+bowl

I tested these out in my backyard with my neighbors' dogs and they really seemed to enjoy them. Ok, I will be honest, they most likely loved the treats in the bowls and the cold water but lets just say they loved the bowls. Who cares anyway? I LOVE THE BOWLS lol. They come in a set of three and they store flat when you are not using them, so they take up almost no room. They are easy to open, just push and they pop up and are ready to use. They are made of sturdy silicone so I believe they will last a while as long as your dog doesn't decide to chew them up. RIGHT NOW 20% off their bowls until stock runs out.

Delicious Loose Leaf Tea Review and Giveaway!!!

I received this loose leaf tea complimentary for my unbiased review. All opinions stated here are 100% my own.

Do you love tea? I know I really do. I really wasn't much of a tea drinker before though. I mean when I was sick and not feeling great I would pour the occasional cup of peppermint tea or the old standard Lipton tea but it was more like once or twice a year. After all I am a die hard coffeeholic you know? Can't start the day without my cup of joe and a trip out of the house better include a Venti Vanilla Latte from You Know Where!

Lately though I have become a loose leaf tea drinker. I even have my own tea infuser now thanks to a review I did for a seller. Although tea in a bag is good, loose tea is amazing and I can't tell you why. Maybe because there are more types available in loose leaf? Maybe it is fresher? I really can't tell you but I can say I prefer it, and that I am drinking tea now almost on a daily basis. Hot tea or iced, either way I am drinking a lot more of it.

So, I was asked to review this loose leaf tea from Enjoying Tea and I was happy to oblige. This tea is so pretty you could give it as a gift if you don't want to keep it for yourself. Inside the box are 6 little sample size tins. Each one is sealed with tape and labelled with the flavor of tea. When you open the tin and inhale, the smell is amazing. The taste is equally amazing. I tried the Vanilla Roobios because I love vanilla and this tea did not disappoint. The tea and the vanilla pair very well and neither out does the other. I also enjoyed the Jasmine Green Tea which has a very light flavor and isn't too strong. You can get this tea online at http://www.enjoyingtea.com/tea.html

FACES Beautiful Brush on Liquid Mineral Make Up Works Great!

I received this make up for free in exchange for an honest review. All opinions stated here and in the video are completely my own.

I love liquid make up because it hides the flaws in my face and it makes my skin tone even. I have tried all kinds of different ones along with mineral powders. The thing with liquid makeup is I usually use my finger to blend it into my skin and it can cause a real mess. My fingers get all stained and if I touch the sink or the wall I have an even bigger mess.
This Faces Beautiful liquid makeup is different because it has a brush attached to the tube. You put the brush in the on position and squeeze the tube. The makeup comes through the center of the brush and you use the brush to apply  the makeup to your face. There is no mess because  your fingers never touch the makeup. The brush made it easier to apply and it seemed to smooth out much faster. I love that I could get much closer to my lower lashes using the brush than I could when I used my fingers. The makeup itself is very light and non greasy. The color I used is called Healthy Nude and it seemed to blend well with my skin tone. I am very fair skinned thanks to my Irish ancestors so sometimes I have a hard time finding a foundation to look right on my skin. This one at first I thought was too dark, but when I looked at it in the bathroom mirror, it was blended perfectly with my skintone and looked great.

I love how this makeup evened out my skin tone and hid my freckles and age spots. I am going to a wedding in a week and I now have a great new product in my makeup bag. It may not turn back the clock but it will definitely make me feel younger and prettier. You can get this liquid brush on makeup at http://www.facesbeautiful.com/liquid-mineral-makeup-p/facesbeautiful-brush-on-lig.htm  It comes in Radiant Beige, Healthy Nude, and Sun Glow.

La Lunes All Natural Lemon Essential Oil is a great product to use

I received this Lemon Essential Oil complimentary for my honest evaluation. All opinions stated in the review are 100% my own.

I have used several of Lalune's products and all of them have been exceptional in their quality. This lemon essential is as well made as any of their other things. I love that it is 100% natural pure lemon oil and of course that it is made here in America. It has a very fresh lemony smell and when I used it in my diffuser my bedroom seemed more refreshing and rejuvenating when I walked in.
There are so many things you can do with essential oils and lemon is good for making natural cleaners for the kitchen and bathroom.I used

5 oz. distilled water                                                                                                                     
5 oz. white vinegar
1 tsp. baking soda
20 drops Lalune's Lemon Essential Oil
Combine the water and vinegar in a large mixing bowl, then add the baking soda a little at a time so it dosen't fizz up and lastly add the drops of lemon essential oil.  Then just pour the mix into a spray bottle and you are ready to clean! I use it in the kitchen on my stove, counters, and the refrigerator. In the bathroom I use it on everything, even the mirrors because it works so well and leaves everything with a clean citrus smell.

And that is only 1 thing you can do with it. You can use it in soaps, candles, lotions, mix a bit with a capful of coconut oil for a bath, its so versatile! You can get this essential oil on Amazon if you follow this link http://www.amazon.com/La-Lune-Naturals-Recipes-Included/dp/B00UK4Q762/ref=aag_m_pw_dp?ie=UTF8&m=A28IXOORA7LYQV   I really love using essential oils and this is a nice one to get started with if you haven't used them before. You can find other Lalune's products on their website http://lalunenaturals.com

Sunsella Silicone Popsicle Makers where you control the ingredients

I received these Sunsella Silicone Popsicle Makers complimentary for my unbiased review. All opinions stated here are my own.

If you want to make frozen treats for yourself or your kids with ingredients you control, look no further than these silicone popsicle makers from Sunsella. They are easy to use, food grade, silicone molds that make pop up treats. I am trying to watch my sugar and fat intake, so I used some yoplait frozen yogurt in them. Now at night when the rest of the family is eating their ice cream, I grab one of these frozen yogurt pops. I use low fat  yogurt and about half a container fills a mold. My  night time treat is about 45 calories instead of the 200 or more calories in a dish of ice cream.
I like these also because they are larger than some of the other molds I have seen on the market. The caps on these are not connected so you have to make sure not to lose them but all in all I really like these. During the hot summer I am going to be putting these to a lot of use.

Glow little Glowsticks all night long!

I received these glow sticks complimentary for my unbiased review. All opinions stated here are 100% my own.

Summer is almost here! This means longer outdoor time, camping trips and of course family time. What could be more fun than running around in the dark wearing glow sticks? These Super Bright Long Lasting Glow Sticks from Super Bright Glow Sticks do not disappoint. You get 100 sticks and connectors in a nice large tube and the possibilities are endless.
These glow sticks are so fun to use. Pull them out of the tube, crack them and they start glowing with intense colors. I saw blue, red, green, and yellow when I cracked a few. Use the connectors that come with them and you can make bracelets or necklaces or even loop them together and hang them in your yard to create lighting. There are just so many things you can create with these glow sticks.
So, if you are interested in getting a tube of these little bad boys for yourself, just follow this link and pick them up on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/b00nqj2dbg
