#LoveHallmark Gold Miniature Display Tree + Mini Porcelain Ornaments

Disclosure: I received this product as a Love, Hallmark blogger. Opinions shared are mine.

Do you ever feel like December flies by without really feeling like the Christmas season?  Maybe that’s why stores put out holiday decorations in early fall.  It gives all of us the chance to enjoy the lights and decor before we get it in our homes!  This year, be sure to look for the new Gold Miniature Display Tree from Hallmark.

When my husband and I were newlyweds, we didn’t have the money to buy a Christmas tree. In fact, we didn’t have one for the first five years of our marriage! Since we spent the holidays out of state with one family or the other, it seemed like an unnecessary expense. Looking back, I feel like we missed out on having that lovely memory. I want my children to enjoy having their Christmas trees in their own homes. I’ve been buying them ornaments during their childhoods so that they’ll have some ornaments to hang on their first family tree. [Read more…]

Inspirational desserts start with Yonanas! #Inspirational2016

Disclosure: I will receive a Yonanas inspirational desserts product sample. Opinions shared are mine.

This summer, there will be no dessert-fueled guilt.  Instead, I’ll go straight for the Yonanas to create inspirational desserts that taste like frozen yogurt.  Finally, something other than banana bread can come of our overripe bananas! I’m thrilled that other fruits can be used in the Yonanas dessert maker, too. We purchase a lot of fruit at the farmer’s market (blueberries, strawberries, apples, and more). Since it’s not covered in preservatives and shellac, the fruit must be consumed within a day or two. Freezing it to use in the Yonanas machine will be a big moneysaver, but will seem like a treat! Enter to win a Yonanas dessert maker - great for restricted diets (vegan, dairy free, gluten free). #giveaway at savingsinseconds.com [Read more…]

Welcome to our Chocolat Frey fest!  I was introduced to this wonderful brand through the Everyday Assortment and Bunnies box.  When the delicious delivery was made, my family rejoiced.  Seriously, few things get our giddiness like chocolate.  Chocolat Frey was special right from the start.  The beautiful wrappings hint of the quality and treasure within.  Silver, gold, blue, and pink metallic foil make the chocolate even more special.    I wanted to incorporate the wrappings, flavors, and fun into a spring activity for my kids.  Join us for the Chocolat Frey Scavenger Hunt!

How we prevent problems with allergies #ecologyworks

We recently moved to a new home that is located out along a tree-lined road. The cars driving by tend to blow dust into our yard, which shows on the wood floors. Since we’re heading into fall, the pets have been adding their own share of dust from their dander. Here’s what we do to make things a little easier around our acting-up allergies!

1. Use a steam mop.
Shark steam and mop - savingsinseconds.com
Since this mop uses the power of steam from distilled water, no chemicals are necessary for a high-quality clean. It sanitizes up to 99.9% of the germs and leaves behind a beautiful shine. The microfiber cloth is great for collecting dust, and is machine washable.

2. We received Anti-Allergen pet shampoo to review and gave it a try. [Read more…]
