Holiday Gift Guide Review Streaming Right Along with the Roku 4 #review #sponsored #roku

Ever Since David and I got married in June of 2007 we have pretty much either watched tv by either watching tv series on DVD's, or by some means of streaming service. I know it sounds funny looking back but we didn't even have the internet believe it or not when we first got married- and even when we did finally get it (after I got sick and tired of going to the library for only 1 hour a days worth) it was still dial up! I have always been one of those people who say I could def. live without tv vs the internet- but that is mostly because I depend on my internet for my tv! We have at a few points had cable (and a very disastrous satellite experience at one point) but our cable we can do month to month- which the last time we had it I know that for the last 2 months we had it, it was never turned on! We were trying to catch our billing cycle and cancel it at the right time and it was a pain! Streaming options now a days are so multiple that we really don't have any reason to have ...

The Pioneer Woman Holiday Collection 2016 Available at Walmart NOW! #sponsored #review #pioneerwoman

I admit I didn't really know anything about The Pioneer Woman until last fall when I saw her dishes coming out at walmart and I fell in love with them. I had followed her on Facebook and everything but I didn't have any of her cookbooks and hadn't watched her on t.v or anything like that. When I saw her dishes and cookware though I started paying more and more attention and I quickly started collecting them! I have pretty much anything she has came out with including brand new set of dishes(plates/salad plates/bowls/glasses/coffee cups) to the knives , napkins,rug,placemats and everything in between. Oh and all of her cookbooks except one! My husband calls her the other woman in his life, and frequently says he has spent more money on her than he has spent on me ha ha. I def. have plans to buy several other items that I haven't yet, all in good time though :) I didn't realize that this fall there would be a Fall collection coming out and there would also be a Holiday ...

Holiday Gift Guide Review: Wine Fridge from hammacher schlemmer #review #sponsored #holidaygiftguide

  If you have been reading the blog for any length of time, you likely know that I am a huge fan of Wine! I have actually started doing a little bit of "collecting" - I have been doing that with the "hard stuff" for quite a while but now I am trying to evolve that a little bit :) David and I had for a while been saying I needed a wine fridge to properly store my wines in, but it wasn't something that I had figured I would get anytime soon- and I was right it has been several years since that idea had popped into my head, but with getting some wine this summer when I went on a trip, and wanting to keep some of my moms wine on hand it was a little more on my radar because I don't have that much cabinet space! A really random thing about me? Usually in the past I haven't been one to drink my wine cold- I have been used to drinking it at room temperature or sticking my corksicle in it- or even the horrible sin of adding ice to my drink in the past (don't worry I ...

Holiday Gift Guide Review: Crane USA Digital Tower Fan #review #sponsored #craneus

It might be technically Fall- my favorite of all seasons, here in the South - but we tend to not feel it till it is almost "winter" and it doesn't last too horribly long either :(!  I mean we have changed temps a little bit from 100 in the shade to more like somewhere in the 80's- 90's ranges for the most part and got a little bit of dreary going on a couple of days but it still just doesn't scream Fall! One thing I am glad that I have invested in in the past was a ceiling fan but when we moved to this apartment there wasn't the option to do that sort of thing, and of course they didn't have any to start with either. We finally had purchased a fan for the bedroom because it does help with helping me sleep. I had hoped we could get one for the living room as well so when I had the chance to get a Crane USA Digital Tower fan I was pretty well doing cartwheels. I had actually taken to hanging out in the bedroom in the early afternoon because for some reason between 330 and 5 I tend ...

[Holiday Gift Guide Review] Shark Rotator Powered Lift Away Speed Vacuum #review #sponsored #holidaygiftguide16

As you may well know, or well if you don't you will now :), David is a certified OCD cleaning freak! I will say all the time I don't mind being clean, and I would rather have someone who is willing to clean and keep things ship shape than someone who is not, but I think you have to have a balance too. Thankfully he isn't as bad as he used to be, but he still has his little routine and whatnot and I just let it be. My dad is always saying we are going to die from something crazy because of him cleaning away the good bacteria and what not ;) When I had another chance to get something cleaning related to review from my good friends over at Shark I was hopeful that they would offer me a vacuum cleaner this time around because that is something David has really been wanting ( I honestly miss when we only had a rug to vacuum! I hate all this carpet!) Luckily that is exactly what they had in mind and they sent me the Shark Rotator Powered Lift Away Speed!   We have basically ...

Review: Gerard Cosmetics Star Powder #review #sponsored

You all likely know I don't wear much when it comes to make up- I love collecting it, I like messing around with it, but in general I am just not a make up wearin' gal- though I am a girly girl!  I think it goes back to this quote that my great grandfather always said "A little bit of powder and a little paint makes many an ole gal what she ain't"! So it has just been something I have been conservative with for the most part. I go more for concealer, tanning, lotions, lip glosses and that kind of thing- and especially glitter! Yes, I am a child from the 90's you can tell! I have glitter body spays and roll on sticks and just tubs of glitter to wear ! I do tend to like to use glitter more when I am tan, and if something can compliment my color at the same time as far as bronze color, I get really excited. I have some lotion that has bronzers and some glitter than I use on my legs when I am tanning and was happy when I got an Item to review that was similar in concept for me to use on ...
