A Pretty Phone Case: Maxboost® [Vibrance S] iPhone 6 6S Case (4.7 Inch) Slider Style #review

**I received this product free of charge in exchange for my honest review.**

I love getting new accessories for my cell phone.  I like having good quality products that are pretty.  A lot of iPhone accessories are really expensive.  I have learned that with a little patience and research, you can find great cell phone cases that your check book will be happy with.  

This Maxboost® [Vibrance S] iPhone 6 6S Case (4.7 Inch) Slider Style is made for the iPhone 6 and the 4.7 inch iPhone 6S.  The raised edge will help keep your screen from getting damaged.  When I tried this case on the iPhone 6, I was really happy that it didn't interfere with the speaker or camera.  The Vibrance S case is sturdy yet flexible.

I am in love with the turquoise and champagne gold color combination.  It's classy and playful.  I'm a fan of the slider style cases because they are a lot easier to get on and off your device.  If you purchase this case, you also get a lifetime warranty with is a nice incentive.

Trap Your Phone With The Universal Air Vent Mount Cell Phone Holder #review

**I received this product free of charge in exchange for my honest review.**

I spend a lot of time in my car and on my cell phone.  I have a habit of just laying my cell phone in the passenger seat while I am driving.  There have been several times that I have taken a turn or pushed on my brake pedal and my phone will go flying into to the floor.  Most of the time when this happens, it's because someone in front of me slams on their brake.  There have been a few times that my phone has went so far as to go between the right side of the passenger seat and the car door.  I really hate when this happens because it's a lot harder to find...  With the Universal Air Vent Mount Cell Phone Holder, I don't have to worry about this happening.  Unless of course I forget to put my phone in it. 

I really like having a safe place to store my cell phone because I don't want it to break or get damaged.  Another really good feature this product has is that it goes on your air vent, so if you need to Mapquest directions or something, you can see the directions easily.  This item can rotate 360 degrees which means that you can choose how your phone is displayed.  If your cell phone is 5.5 inches wide or smaller, the Universal Air Vent Mount Holder should fit your device.  I was afraid that using this in my car would make it hard to feel the air conditioning and heat.  While it did diminish the amount of air/heat somewhat, it didn't make that much of a difference. I am really glad that I have this phone mount!

I'm thinking about getting everyone in my family cell phone accessories this holiday season.  With how much we are all on our phones, they would come in handy.  What do you think?  Would you enjoy getting accessories for your favorite device?

Set & Go Cell Phone Charger, 5200 mAh, Black and White #review

**I received this item free of charge in exchange for my honest review.**

When I first laid eyes on the Set & Go Cell Phone Charger, 5200 mAh, Black and White, I thought it was absolutely adorable! I love the design and I like how the charger is a tube. I like things that are different and this is the first cell phone charger I have seen that looks like this. It is made to work with cell phones from both Android and Apple.This cell phone charger can charge up to 3 batteries on one battery pack charge. That's amazing! I'm a bit of an impatient person, so I expect technology to work rather quickly and I get irritated when it doesn't meet my expectations. The Set and Go charger passed my tests with flying colors. My cell phone was fully charged in no time. You don't have to worry about it overheating because it's made with a Grade A battery cell. That means a lot to me. I don't want to have to worry about my device or the charger overheating. Plus, it's size and shape make it easy to tote around in your purse. Another plus for someone who usually doesn't usually have a lot of free space in their handbag. I really like this product and highly recommend it!

CMS 500DL Generation 2 Fingertip Pulse Oximeter Oximetry Blood Oxygen Saturation Monitor #review

**I received this item free of charge in exchange for my honest review.**

**I received this item free of charge in exchange for my honest review.**

There are many ailments that run in my family and because of this, I am trying to take better care of myself. I am slowly stockpiling a collection of at-home medical devices to help me keep track of my health stats. I recently added the CMS 500DL Generation 2 Fingertip Pulse Oximeter Oximetry Blood Oxygen Saturation Monitor to my collection. I am thrilled to have this item in my home!

It has recently been upgraded and is FDA approved. The Oximeter reads your blood oxygen saturation levels and pulse. It only takes 10 seconds and the LED display makes it easy to see your results. The top number is your blood oxygen saturation level and the bottom number is your pulse. When you purchase this item, you receive 2 triple A batteries so you can start using it right away. On the top left of the LED screen, you can see how much battery life there is so you know when it's time to replace the batteries. The silicon cover keeps your device from getting damaged. Every home should have one of these. I am so glad that I can use it any time I feel like it. It gives me piece of mind.  Plus, it's kind of fun to have it here.  I know I'm a nerd but I like using medical devices.  It reminds me of being a kid and pretending I was a nurse.

Buttons & Pleats Womens Cotton Crew Socks Cute Series 5 Pairs #review

**I received this product free of charge in exchange for my honest review.**

I have had a funky sock obsession ever since I was a little girl.  I love the combination of bright colors and crazy designs.  That's why I got so excited when I saw Buttons & Pleats Womens Cotton Crew Socks Cute Series 5 Pairs.  Buttons & Pleats offers several different patterns and colors to choose from.

On the day that I received my new socks, I pulled them out of the plastic and tried one on right away.  I really like how the socks feel on my feet.  They are a combination of cotton, polyester and spandex.  My feet get really sweaty, so it's hard for me to find the right combinations of materials that will keep my feet warm and allow them to get some air.  Luckily, these crew socks are breathable.

They are so soft!  I'm so happy that I have these comfortable socks to wear to work or even just when I'm sitting at home.  If you wear a ladies size five through nine, these socks will make a wonderful addition to your sock collection!  What do you think?  Do you like the design?

Pluck Those Strays With The Grooming District Premium 3 Tip Tweezers Set with Case #review

**I received this product free of charge in exchange for my honest review.**

I had no idea that using tweezers with different tips would make a difference.  I always just used the pointed ones and usually had to fight with a bunch of stubborn hairs.  When the Grooming District Premium 3 Tip Tweezers Set with Case was delivered and I opened it up, I was very pleased.

These tweezers are made with stainless steel and when you pick up a pair, you can instantly tell that they are high quality.  They grab the hair in such a way that when you pull it out it doesn't hurt like when I use my old, dingy tweezers.  I felt more of a tug than pain.

I really like that it came with a case because that makes them easier to find.  I used to put my one pair of tweezers in my vanity drawer.  Then, when I would try to find them, I would have to try to find them in my mess of beauty supplies.  Yes, I know, I could just organize everything...  I would rather just have cute little travel cases for everything.  

I am so very happy with my Grooming District Premium 3 Tip Tweezers set.  They are affordable and fully functional.  I love how pretty they are almost as much as I love how well they work.  I already know what I'm getting some of the lucky women in my life.

Z-TA iPhone 6 (4.7-inch) Defender Case #review

**I received this product free of charge in exchange for my honest review.**

Cell phones are such an important part of daily life these days.  It almost seems like they are an extension of ourselves.  We take them everywhere and feel lost without them.  These devices are expensive and because of that, it's always a good idea to protect it.

The Z-Ta iPhone 6 (4.7-inch) Defender Case is made of silicone on the inside but the outside is hard to keep your phone protected.  I love the mint and grey color combination.  It's so sleek and stylish.  The cutouts on this phone case are great.  I have purchased some cell phone cases in the past where the ports didn't measure up to the case.  I would try to take a picture and the color of the phone case would show up in my photos.  I didn't have this problem with the Z-TA case.

The price is fantastic which means that you could buy a few cases and switch them out.  The defender case is affordable for any budget. It would make a great stocking stuffer.  What do you think?  Would you buy this case?

I Love My Hubby

My hubby made dinner tonight and he is an amazing cook.  He thinks up new recipes and each one has been oh-so-yummy!  He doesn't measure anything either, he just eyeballs everything.  I don't know how he does it.  

As you've probably noticed, we have been getting a lot of new kitchen tools and he thought it would be a good idea to use them while preparing this spectacular meal.

He made a beef stew with beef tips, potato soup, carrots, celery and spices in the he crockpot.  He also cut up a fresh italian bagette and whipped up a margarine mixture with fresh garlic to put on the bread.  It was soooo good! 

Charging Made Easy With The IMKEY 10FT Extra Long Charging Cord #review

**I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest review.**

I grew up with an array of electronics, so it comes as no surprise that I have a lot of devices that need to be charged. It's also no surprise that I expect any gadget (and accessories) to be reasonably priced and have exceptional quality. At the moment I am having a bit of a romantic relationship with my IMKEY chargers. The IMKEY® Premium 10FT Extra Long Gold-Plated Micro USB 2.0 Sync Data Charging Cord Cable is gorgeous! I prefer quality over being "pretty" but sometimes you can have both and this product is proof of that.

This may be my favorite charger ever... Charging my phone happened so fast, I was in awe. It's extreme durability also came as a shock. Especially when you consider the price. I love a good deal and the IMKEY brand knows how to deliver. My husband and I are fighting over who gets to keep this. He is extremely picky about what he uses, so that just goes to show how well it works.

Take Your Dogs To The Park WIth A Collapsible Dog Bowls #review

**I received this product free of charge in exchange for my honest review.**

As you all know, my dogs mean the world to me. I do a lot of research about anything and everything before I introduce them to new foods and other products. This habit of mine is also true for the bowls that they drink and eat from. These bowls are made from eco-friendly silicon and are easy to clean. Two bowls come in each box. When you make a purchase, you are automatically offered a 90 day, 100% Money Back Guarantee.

I recently received my Collapsible Cat & Dog Food and Drink Bowls in the mail and getting to use them was so exciting. My dogs like to get out of the house just as much as I do so I try to take them to the park or over to a family members house whenever I can. When we go to the park, I always carry a backpack with me that includes bags for picking up their poo, wipes, bottles of water and last but not least, water bowls.

Before I received these collapsible bowls, I would take one of their big bowls with me which is why I needed to bring a backpack instead of a smaller bag. I can save time and space now because I have bowls that are dedicated for our little outings. 

The carabiner that is included makes it easy to clip them to a dog leash, a purse or in my case, a backpack.  This is a great product for people who take trips with their four legged friends!

dBs - the New Best Wireless Stereo Bluetooth Headphones #bestwirelessheadphones #review

**I received this item free of charge in exchange for my honest review.**

A photo posted by Bridget Hopper (@bridget3420) on

I don't know what I do without music. Whenever I get really stressed out, one of the best things that I can do to help myself is to turn on some music and let my troubles fade away. I am so happy with my dBs Wireless Stereo Bluetooth Headphones! The sound quality is beyond what I expected. Each song comes through with a crispness that could only be topped by being in the same room with the singer. I have a live album of one of my favorite bands and listening to it through the dBS headphones made me feel like I was in the front row of one of their concerts.

It's hard to find a good pair of headphones because I find most of them to be really uncomfortable. I did not have that problem with this pair. They are very comfy. When I put the headphones on, I thought that I would need to pair it to my cell phone but it connected automatically which was a nice surprise. It also comes with a 3.5mm cable that you can use if your device lacks bluetooth capability. They are perfect for listening to music, playing video games or watching TV when you don't want to have the TV sound on. This would come in handy if you're in bed and want to watch something while your significant other sleeps. They are also foldable so it's easy to take them with you to the work or the gym.

These really are the best wireless headphones!  I love it when a product lives up to it's name and these definitely do! 

Get Pretty With Active Hydration Facial Moisturizer #skindailyskincare #review

**I received this product free of charge in exchange for my honest review**

So many women, including myself, are trying to take whatever steps they can to delay the aging process, especially when it comes to their skin. One of the best ways that I know of to achieve this goal, is to use a quality moisturizer each and every day. Like most things, skin needs to be nourished in order to thrive. Moisturizer is the best way to get that long sought after healthy glow. Best Face Moisturizer Cream is a great way to finish off your daily facial routine.

The ingredients in this product are a special blend that promotes hydration and reverse the harm that has already found it's way to your skin. This formula is also unscented, so for those of you with sensitive skin don't have to work about skin reaction due to scent. Most of you are probably not aware of this, but fragrances can actually damage your skin. We women like for things to smell pretty but sometimes that is not helpful. As of right now, you can ONLY buy this product on Amazon. 

Protect Yourself With The RFID Blocking Wallet by ProtectifTM #review

**I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for sharing my honest review.**

I am pretty picky when it comes to what kind of wallet I carry. I mean, it needs to fully functional but also cute.  I don't want to go around pulling out an ugly wallet every time I need to get out some cash or a bank card.  I am really pleased with the look, feel and features of the RFID Blocking Wallet by ProtectifTM.  It's so pretty!  I love knowing that my bank card and credit cards are being protected.  You hear so many horror stories about identity theft and I want to do as much as I can to protect myself and, of course, protect my money.

There are several slots in this wallet for ID's, credit cards, insurance cards and store reward cards.  I don't usually carry around a lot of change so the middle zipper area is the perfect size for me.  You can tell that it is made with quality material when you hold it.  The only real issue that I have with this wallet is that the credit card slots need to be a teeny bit bigger.  I didn't end up tearing it or anything but I did have to get a little forceful.  Other than that it's the perfect wallet.

Give Your Phone Some Juice With The #IMKEY 2.1A Dual USB Port Rapid #carcharger Adapter #review

**I received this product free of charge in exchange for posting my honest review.**

I spend a lot of time in my car and I spend a lot of time using my cell phone, so naturally, I need a good charger that works fast. I am lucky enough to have a USB outlet in the center console of my car. This would be great except the port is towards the bottom of the console, so if I have anything in it (like CD's and stuff), it is a hassle to use. Also, there are times when I have someone in the car with me who also needs a cell phone battery boost.

swoops in to save the day. It provides lightening fast results and you don't have to worry about it overheating or overcharging your device because it automatically stops the charge when the battery is full. I really like how small and cute it is. The LED light adds a little something extra too. It's a great product! After using this a few times, I was floored by the price. How can something so amazing also be affordable. IMKEY obviously wants everyone to enjoy their adapter.

10 Foot Long iPhone iPad Charging Cord #ReachCables #review

**I received this product free of charge in exchange for my honest review.**

My husband and I have had many conversations about how dumb it is that most companies only provide a two to three foot charging cord with cell phones and tablets. We always end up purchasing a longer cord because two to three feet is not nearly long enough. There are times that we want to be able to use our device while it is being charged. Plus, we are kind of limited on where we can plug stuff in because of where our furniture is in relation to the wall outlets.

I don't know that we will actually need a 10 foot long cord but I would much rather have a cord that is too long rather than have one that is not long enough. The 10 Foot Long iPhone/iPad Charging Cord is coming in very handy! My husband has an iPad Air and the charger that he has been using is on it's last leg. This cord works perfectly.  Every Apple owner would benefit from having one of these.  

Open It Up With The Ozeri Fascina Electric Wine Bottle Opener and Corkscrew #review

**I received this product free of charge in exchange for sharing my honest review.**

I cannot tell you how many times I have had to fight with the cork on a bottle of wine. I had tried several different products and even though some of them did make it easier to remove the cork, none of them could ever compare to the Ozeri Fascina Electric Wine Bottle Opener and Corkscrew.

I was so happy when I received this product in the mail. I love that the wine opener came with 4 AAA batteries. It makes me think that the maker of this item cares about the people who purchase it. I know that it's not hard to go and purchase your own batteries but it's a nice little extra that goes a long way. Four AAA batteries will allow you to open up to 60 bottles before you need to think about replacing them.

This wine bottle opener turns a cork struggle into an enjoyable experience. All you have to do is push a button and in a few seconds you are ready to get your drink on. This cordless kitchen tool will remove corks that are natural and corks that are synthetic.

This would be a wonderful addition to any home. Especially for people who have to a lot of dinner parties or gatherings that involve drinking. I highly recommend this!

Keep Your Bras Looking New With The Spaworks Bra Wash Laundry Bag #review

**I received this product free of charge in exchange for my honest review.**

I used to buy cheap bras that only lasted six months to a year.  I didn't really see the importance of spending extra money and getting a better quality bra.  When I got together with my husband he made it his mission to teach me to take better care of myself and spend a little extra cash up front for things that would last.  One of the main things he made sure of is that I had comfortable, great quality bras. 

When you spend a lot of money on something, you want to take good care of it to ensure it's integrity.  I did hand-wash my unmentionables but that was a pain, so I started being lazy and just throwing my bras in the washer.  I ended up ruining one of them because the strap got caught and I pulled too hard and ripped it.  I no longer have to worry about that happening again.  I can rest assured that my bras will get clean and stay in one piece thanks to the Spaworks Bra Wash Laundry Bag.  What an amazing invention! 

This product is made for cup sizes A, B, C and D and the mesh bag can go in the washer and the dryer.  It's a great way to keep your bras fresh and clean without having to worry about rips or tears.  It also works for your undies!  This would make a great gift.  I recommend this product 100%!

Get You Drink On Using Unbreakable Flexible Wine Glasses by VinoVivo #review

*I received Unbreakable Flexible Wine Glasses by VinoVivo for free in exchange for my honest review.**

There are times when all I want to do is pour myself a glass of wine and sit outside watching my dogs play.  Everyone needs to take a relaxing break and just sit and breathe.  When I do this, I don't like to take my wine glasses out there because I am afraid that they will be damaged.  I try to be careful but honestly, I'm a klutz.    

With the Unbreakable Flexible Wine Glasses by VinoVivo, I don't have to worry about glass breaking and hurting myself or my doggies.  These particular "glasses" are made of silicone.  They are so soft and squishy.  Yes, I am a lot like a kid, I get excited over the little things in life.  I have started using them for all of my drinks!  They would be perfect for going on a picnic because you can fold them up and stick them in your purse until you get to the park.    

Another great quality about these BPA free silicone glasses is that they are dishwasher safe, which makes cleaning up a breeze.  

What will you drink?

#feelingfluffy Handmade Wool Dryer Balls #review

**I purchased Handmade Wool Dryer Balls at a discounted price in exchange for my honest review.**

I have been using fabric softener and dryer sheets for years and years.  Yes, I usually do both because if I just use one, my clothes don't come out soft enough.  I recently found out that using fabric softener and dryer sheets can actually be bad for your clothing.  It can mess with the material and cause your clothes to deteriorate quicker than they should.

I am so glad that I am able to use Feeling Fluffy Handmade Wool Dryer Balls.  They are amazing!  The dryer balls are hypo-allergenic and do not contain any harsh chemicals so even people with extremely sensitive skin can use them.  By using these wool dryer balls, you are doing the environment a favor because they are eco-friendly and reusable.

A photo posted by Bridget Hopper (@bridget3420) on

I was pretty much floored when I used the Feeling Fluffy Handmade Wool Dryer Balls for the first time.  My work clothes came out softer than they have ever been and there wasn't any static!  One unexpected plus to these dryer balls is that my husbands white socks actually came out of the dryer looking whiter!  I wouldn't say that they look brand new but they definitely looked new-er.  When he went into the laundry room to grab his clean clothes, he looked at me and said "there are balls in my shorts".  I thought he was just being silly but one of the balls had actually made its way into his shorts.  It was so funny!  I never would have thought that laundry would become humorous. 

I don't think I'll ever be able to go back to liquid fabric softener and dryer sheets!  What are your thoughts on using dryer balls instead of traditional softening laundry products?

Moore Carden Men's Canvas Shoulder Everyday Bag #review

**I received this item free of charge in exchange for sharing my honest opinion.**

This is one of the best bags I have ever used! Yes, I know that it is listed as a Men's Canvas Shoulder Everyday Bag but it is a wonderful replacement for a purse. I originally got this for my husband but once it was delivered, I took possession of this great bag. Lucky for me, as soon as he took a look at it, he agreed with me that it would better for me to use it.

If I had known that a bag for men would have everything I look for in a handbag, I would have bought one years ago! There is a place for everything and you can organize all of your stuff exactly how you want. It is the smartest design! It's made with 100% cotton canvas and has adjustable shoulder straps. My favorite thing about this messenger bag is the front area that takes the place of a wallet. I had no idea what I was missing.

I wondered what people at work would say when I walked in carrying this bag on my shoulder instead of my usual purse. They thought the same thing I did. It's cute, casual and practical. A great item for men and women.

#GlamuletPinkOctober for Breast Cancer Awareness @brandbacker

Breast Cancer Awareness is spoken of a lot but I don't think it will ever be talked about enough.  Too many people are diagnosed with cancer each and every day.  Cancer is devastating to the person who has it and to the ones who love them.  Breast Cancer is the second leading cause of death in women.

Glamulet is doing what they can to help spread awareness in a beautiful way.  They have created Pink Limited Edition Charms to help support Breast Cancer Awareness.  Whenever a set of these gorgeous charms is added to the cart, a charity will receive 50% of the proceeds.  Find out more about Glamulet's Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign here.

Grind Your Spices With iKoo's Stainless Steel Spice Mill #review

**I received this product for free in exchange for writing an honest review.**

I have wanted a pepper mill for years! I finally got an iKoo Stainless Steel Spice Mill and I can't believe I waited so long to add one to my kitchen!  I really enjoy home cooked meals and want to use the best spices. It's amazing how using a different version of the same spice can make a meal go from good to awesome.  That's what happened when my husband and I made a crockpot stew.  The larger flecks of peppercorn add a punch that I can no longer live without.  There are several different ways to change up the amount of pepper you use with this particular product.  You can change the pepper size from small to medium to large. That way, if you and your guests have a different idea as to how much pepper should go on a meal, you can just turn the little dial on the bottom.  It's so easy to use.  All you have to do is add the peppercorn (or salt), turn the dial to the desired size and push the button on the top.  Viola!  You are now ready to eat.

The brushed stainless steelspice mill is absolutely gorgeous!  I have it on display in my kitchen and now I just need to get another one for salt and my collection will be complete.  The only issue that I see with this product is that it is really expensive.  I don't think that I would spend this much money on just one spice mill...

@RadhaBeauty Dead Sea Mud Mask #beauty #review

**I received this product free of charge in exchange for my honest review**

The Radha Beauty Dead Sea Mud Mask is amazing!  My skin has never felt better!  It's made from 100% natural ingredients so you don't have to worry about putting harsh chemicals on your face.  It works by removing dead skin cells and stimulates skin cell regeneration.  I have used a lot of beauty products and as far as masks go, this is by far my favorite.  It's kind of hard to explain how great this product works.  I guess the best way I can describe it is to say that after using it, my face feels so alive! 

I have extremely sensitive skin, so I have to be really careful about what I use on my skin.  The skin on my face gets really dry too and it's difficult to find any face products that help clean without drying it out.  I did not have any issues whatsoever with Radha.  

The Radha Beauty Dead Sea Mud Mask will put a smile on your face and on your wallet.  It is the most reasonably priced facial product and worth every penny.  I'm going to have to remember this when I do my Christmas shopping because this will make on heck of gift!

The Best Kitchen Utensils: #Lucentee 6-Piece Silicone Baking Set #review

**I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for an honest review.**

When I first laid eyes on the Lucentee 6-Piece Silicone Baking Set, I knew I had to have it! Cooking and baking are two of my favorite things. I had some good cooking utensils but they were several years old. My new Lucentee silicone kitchen utensils are amazing! They work great and I love how they add a pop of color to my kitchen.

They feel really comfortable in your hand and they are lightweight unlike some utensils I have used in the past. They are also dishwasher safe which is a huge plus in my book. When you spend a long time cooking, you don't really want to spend a lot time cleaning up afterward.

My husband was a little leary about using the spatula while flipping pancakes. The spatula is thicker than any he had previously used and he was afraid that it would compromise the pancakes fluffy appearance. He was so thrilled when he lifted the pancake off the skillet and was able to flip it over in one go.

When you purchase this silicone baking set, you get three spatulas, two spoons and a turner. They are heat resistant and perfect to use on non-stick pans. This company is so convinced that you will love their products that they offer a money back guarantee.

I am so happy that I have these utensils!  Now I want all of Lucentee's cooking utensils.  It's hard to find fully function kitchen items that look and feel this good.  These would make the perfect gift this holiday season!

The Perfect Slice Of Pie - ORBLUE Flatware Pie Server Stainless Steel Cake Cutter #review

**I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for writing an honest review.**

I come from a family of sweet tooth addicts.  Many of my family and friends could not believe that I had never owned a pie server.  Normally, when I serve pie, I just use a knife and fork or spoon.  The usual result of this is that the counter gets a taste of the pie and then I have a mess to clean up.
The day that my ORBLUE Flatware Pie Server was delivered, I took a drive to the store and purchased a pie.  When I got home, I opened up my new stainless steel pie server and methodically cut a big slice for myself.  It was so nice not ending up with a bunch of pie all over the place.  This server is perfect.  Seriously.  The serrated edge is my new best friend.  I love how well it cuts through the pie and filling without any issues.  It even cut right through a pie that had just been in the freezer.

I haven't had a chance to try using this on cake but I'm sure that it will work great.  There are so many things that I could use this for: pies, cake, ice cream cake, cookie cake, brownies, etc.  The list goes on and on.

You may find this hard to believe but this gorgeous pie server is rust resistant and dishwasher safe!  A must have for every kitchen!

Do Your Stretching On A Microfiber + A20 Fiber Multi Towel #review

**I received a discounted product in exchange for my honest review.**

To be completely honest, my workout routine has taken a nose dive lately. When I say workout I really mean doing stretches. I suffer from severe back pain, so I can't really "workout". Stretching and doing yoga is basically all that my body can handle at the moment. I'm a little bit of a clean freak, so I don't like laying on the carpet even though my home is really clean. Thankfully, I found out about the Microfiber + A20 Fiber Multi Towel. I was able to lay the large towel out and no matter what position I was in, my entire body was on the towel.

It was so nice to be able to relax while I stretched. It's hard to get in good stretches when your body is all tensed up. I don't know why but having the towel laid out like a mat seemed to make me more motivated. I don't know if it's because I didn't have to worry about getting sweat on the carpet or if it made me feel like I was in a class or something. Either way, I like it! The smaller towel is perfect for wiping off your face because it's light and soft. The towels are also anti-bacterial.

You can purchase the Microfiber + A20 Fiber Multi Towel in blue or purple.  If you are wondering how you are supposed to clean these towels, don't worry, they can go in the washing machine!  Just make sure you follow the instructions.

Make Your Dogs Do A Happy Dance With #CuteDogRopeToys #review

**I received these items free of charge in exchange for sharing my honest opinion.**

Everyone who knows me knows that my dogs mean the world to me.  I could not imagine my life without them because each and every day they remind me of what unconditional love is. Because of this, I am very picky about what food my dogs eat and what toys they play with. We adopted Reese (the one with the stripes) when she was three months old and she has grown up having a huge array of toys around. We adopted Teegan a few months ago and at first he was somewhat leery of toys. Part of me thinks that he had never had toys.

Slowly but surely, Reese taught him that toys can be a blast. When I opened the box that had the rope toys inside, I don't know who was more excited, me or them. Somehow they always know when something is for them, whether it comes in the mail or if it's in a grocery bag. Normally, they will take a new toy and just lay down and inspect it. It usually takes me or my husband getting in the floor and playing with the toy before they will really pay attention to the toy.

That was not the case with these cute dog rope toys. As soon as I handed one to Reese and one to Teegan, they took off and started throwing the toys around. It was so cute! I really wish I had been able to capture them on video. The best I could do was get some action photos of Teegan.

So, why should you choose these products over similar ones made by a different company? My dogs are really picky, especially Reese, and they fell in love with these toys right away. They are made with 100% eco friendly cotton fibers. I like knowing that the toys are made from safe material because dogs play by putting the toys in their mouth. I like not having to worry that they are going to get sick from using something that is meant for fun. All in all, I give these toys five paws!
