Enjoy Lighting | Flameless Candles {review & giveaway}


I truly have a spot in my heart for candles so when I was contacted with the opportunity to review a couple, I couldn’t refuse! The candles I am reviewing are from Enjoy Lighting Flameless Candles. I’ve heard the buzz behind LED candles but wasn’t sure I wanted to take the plunge and purchase those for my home, that is until until now.

I was able to review two candles in the Burgundy Distressed Pomegranate Passion Fragrance which were the perfect addition to a romantic Valentine evening at home with my honey.They provided a very cozy feel and an intimate ambiance.

These candles are made of real wax and have three LED light precisely placed and programmed to create a flickering effect that looks just like a real flame! How awesome is it that no one would even know the difference unless they took a look inside the candle itself to know it didn’t have a real flame! Not having a real flame is fantastic especially with children and pets around. Little ones are super curious and we know accidents can happen. These are fantastic to prevent unwanted incidents.

If you are wondering how they work take note that you’ll need to purchase batteries separately from your candles. Theses have on and off switches so that the candles can be set to run for four, six or eight hour durations!

The fragrance of these candles is light and fresh and not over the top in the least bit. I usually am very sensitive to certain candles fragrances but had no problem with these whatsoever.

Enjoy Lighting Flameless Candles are available in many different styles, colors and fragrances. These are the perfect decorative addition to any room.

Butter Bell® Crock {review and giveaway}

The Butter Bell Crock


I recently had a new wonder added to my kitchen collection of must haves. This great product is called the Butter Bell which is also known as a more modern version of the original French butter crock. This product was made specifically to allow you to have easy spreadable butter anytime you need it!

I wasn’t really sure about the whole thing when I first heard about the butter crock.  But my entire thinking changed once I was able to personally try one out for myself.  I was sent a Retro Color & Matte Finish Butter Binell Crock in  Maraschino Red! I was in awe of the variety of styles and colors available and extremely happy that my little crock matches my kitchen theme perfectly as I am a huge lover of red.

How it Works!

So how does this modern marvel really work? Let me tell you that they are extremely easy and very simple to start and continue using.  There are two pieces to the crock, the interior piece which holds the butter and the exterior which holds approximately 1/3 cup of cold water. The water works as a seal keeping your butter fresh and spreadable.

Made from New Bone China, the highest quality ceramics available, the Butter Bell crock insures that under reasonable, correct usage, butter storage time can be up to 30 days, mind that you change the water out at least every three days.

Overall Thoughts…

I love my little Butter Bell Crock and use it quite often. I tend to make biscuits every few days and my daughter loves having toast with her breakfast so our crock is getting plenty of usage.  You have no idea how nice it is to not have to deal with a hard stick of butter when trying to apply to bread of any kind. The Butter Bell crock saves me so much time, it’s easy to use, care for, and looks absolutely lovely on my counter top and dining table.

Buy it!

I think every home should have a Butter Bell Crock and I guarantee after you have one of your own you’ll most definitely want to get one for a friend or family member! Shop online or check the store locator. You can purchase a crock for $22.95  but right now they have an awesome Holiday Special where you can buy two, get one free!  This offer is good until 12/15/10

The company that carrys Butter Bell also has many other wonderful products to check out! I’ve totally got my eye on the sugar bowls, creamers, and tea steepers!

Wonda Wedge Review

logo

As I am growing older, I’m paying attention even more to my posture. I recall when I was growing up my mom always told me to sit up straight and not to slouch. As a kid I didn’t pay too much attention to her advice but really, what kid does when it comes to lounging around? I now (as hard as it may seem sometimes) am trying my best to sit up straight and not to slouch as it’s no good for my posture and does my aging body no good in the least bit.

I discovered a product a few weeks ago called the WondaWedge. This fantastic product is an inflatable wedge then encourages proper posture and amazing back support whether you be at home, the beach, or out camping! The possibilities of indoor and outdoor use of this wedge are really endless!

The  Wonda Wedge basically is inflatable pillow with permanently attached mat. The mat attached to the pillow gives you a clean place to sit on various surfaces such as grass, sand to name a few. The mat also helps to keep the wedge in one place.

I was sent a Wonda Wedge, green in color to review.  I like to read in bed but never seemed to get comfortable! I was always pushing and pulling pillows behind my head and back trying to find a position that suited me, but despite my hard efforts I was never completely satisfied. This was until I tried out the Wonda Wedge!

It was very easy to inflate. It took no time to blow up, maybe 3-5 minutes tops without using a pump. An added bonus is that the wedge has several different variations of positions to use to your liking.  You can even add more or less air to suit your own personal comfort level.

I’ve been nothing but pleased with my Wonda Wedge’s performance. It’s been great to use for me when reading in bed, lounging in the living room, and nursing my daughter! I can’t wait to take it with us to the beach this summer!

Natures Notebook Review

foralloflifes

Artist Courtney Noelle has captured a way to share her love for the ocean and beaches with those around her through her company ” Natures Notebook”. Courtney inscribes personal messages of all kinds from names to inspirational words in the sands of California’s beautiful beaches. frontPageGraphic

About the Company:

Nature’s Notebook was born of a spiritual connection to the ocean and its beaches. Drawn to the soft sandy edges of the sea, artist Courtney Noelle has always felt inclined to inscribe words or names, thoughts or dreams into the ever-changing landscape of the beach. Something about its tumultuous fate, an uncertainty that parallels our own lives, makes sea sand the perfect tablet for expression.

And what better way to capture that expression, the memory and the magic of the beach forever, than in a photograph.

Courtney Noelle began sharing these captured moments with friends and loved ones through gifts and cards. Soon, people were talking about these special snapshots, encouraging Courtney Noelle to make these gifts available to anyone. Touched, and eager to share this passion with the world, Courtney Noelle began Nature’s Notebook, an online collection of photographs and cards using the seas’ tranquility to express love and emotion.

These make wonderful wedding, anniversary, mothers, fathers, and graduations gifts. Know also that ten percent of the proceeds from buying the print Strength will benefit the Breast Cancer research foundation.
