iPad Case With Keyboard Review

100_3792

I’ll be honest…

 

 

 

I was rather skeptical about trying this iPad case with keyboard out due to reading various mixed reviews. However, I’m satisfied with the product so far. I love the look and feel of it, and it’s in my favorite color too! YES! I love purple. 🙂

In addition

It’s working fine for me. Although, (like anything else), the keyboard came with a (have to get used to) basis. Still, I love it! It’s pretty much like a laptop.

I also like that it’s dust AND spill proof! =)

If you love your iPad and are still looking for that perfect case, this one, (in YOUR color, of course) just may fit the bill. This case is for iPads 2/3/4 and easily connects via Bluetooth. It was quick and easy to purchase, and I received it in 3 days (minus the weekend)!

I absolutely love this product!

I’m going to enjoy writing articles with this case and keyboard. It’s perfect for writing!

This Case and Keyboard is a Steal!…Very Reasonably Priced 🙂

Silly, Frilly, Grandma Tillie – Book Review

grandmatillie2I was delighted to get an invite to review the charming book; Silly, Frilly Grandma Tillie. 🙂

Story Published By: Flashlight Press

Written By: Laurie Jacobs

 

 

 

What a clever way to entertain your grandchildren!

 

My first thought while reading the book….
 

#1 As a Grandma, I’m not that good of an actress lol
 

Second thought
 

#2 My grands would see right through me, they are incredibly smart. 🙂
 

However, I will be reading this book to them soon for sure!

 
The Story: A big smile contoured my face when I picked up the book and read it for the first time. This adorable story is about a grandmother who enjoys being silly with various characters to teach and entertain her granddaughters. My favorite character is “Madame Frilly Tillie!” She certainly makes bath time fun. Although, “Chef Silly Tillie” can make an awesome grilled cheese sandwich. 🙂

 

 

Silly, Frilly, Grandma Tillie

I promise, this story will warm your soul and never bore you; as it absorbed my attention to the very last page. It gave me a warm and fuzzy feeling inside! 🙂   

The Book Itself: I found it to be colorful, eyecatching with the vivid choice of graphics and a genuine, captivating story to share with ANY grandchild.   

Oh and, obviously, Grandma Tillie enjoys changing characters and entertaining MORE than knitting! =)

No Bake Chocolate Cake Pops – Review – Cake It Easy

71598107

This was a FUN one, and I was so delighted to get the chance to do the review! 🙂

Easy DIY Cake Pops Kit

100_4439

From Cake it Easy Pops.com

http://cakeiteasypops.com/

These were so fun to make and actually made me want to get back to holiday-mode! lol :p

100_4446

In fact, just as I posted on Facebook yesterday, I was singing “Happy Holidays” while making them!

100_4441

Below is what the DIY kit includes:

* No Bake Cake Pops Mix in Chocolate
* Rainbow sprinkles
* 10 cake pop sticks
* 10 paper cupcake liners
* A paper mat to work on

Very user-friendly and easy to make, in just 30 minutes!

Note: My batch made 14 🙂

You Will Need a Little Water and Oil

100_4448

Instructions On Back Of The Box…How Cool Is That!! 🙂

cakepopsdirections

Roll ~ Shape ~ Decorate ~ Enjoy!

They really do taste great!!! 🙂

I wish my grandson was a little older to help me make these…would have been so much fun! I’ll have to remember these and order some on the website a couple of years down the road. He will love it!!!

My ONLY recommendation is… Put them in the fridge for about 2 hours, versus 30 minutes before putting the sticks in…as I found them a little too crumbly and easy to fall apart.

100_4457

There are more flavors and variations to choose from…

Water can be substituted with cream cheese, frosting, melted butter and many more delicious ingredients. Cake balls can be dipped in some melted chocolate or candy wafers…I know, sounds delish!!

Other choices could be shredded coconut, nuts, cookie crumbs of any kind, chocolate chips and MORE!

TIP: The chocolate balls can be formed into any shape of your choosing…such as hearts, or anything you like. 🙂

I was invited to do a personal review of this charming website for personalized gifts. They have a generous supply of personalized religious items. I was pleasantly surprised at what I found. To be honest, I fell in love with the site. They house everything from personalized picture frames, teddy bears, crosses to Bibles.

 

I was so delighted and fascinated with these exquisite items. I don’t have to visit a Hallmark store, or other gift store! I can relax and conveniently shop for items I can purchase for my grandchildren all from this one website.

 

And what a perfect time! We’re expecting our second grandchild in May. What perfect choices for our baby’s Baptism that will be coming up! I won’t have to wonder what to buy. In fact, I know exactly what I’m going to purchase. 😉

Hallmark Cards Review

I’ve always loved walking into a Hallmark store…especially around Christmas time! 🙂

You know that fuzzy, warm feeling you get around the holidays? Well, that’s the feeling I get when browsing in the Hallmark stores

I was excited to get my Hallmark card collection that had count-down for kids and musicals nestled inside.

Hallmark Cards has some exquisite collections. And you can ALWAYS find the perfect message for that special someone.

MUSICALS

COUNT DOWNS

Not only does Hallmark have cards that gets the message across in a very unique way, they also have stylish ornaments.

Hallmark also does gift wrapping

STILL MORE TO OFFER…There is also a Hallmark Card Studio Deluxe software where you can personalize your special greeting. How awesome is that?! 🙂

And don’t forget!

Their Crown Rewards Program! It’s simple…just present your Crown Rewards card when you check out at any Hallmark stores and you earn points! These points transfer to real cash that you can use to buy Hallmark products.

*** The Hallmark company created in 1910 by Midwesterners Joyce, Rollie and William Hall ***

Thank you very much Gina for extending the invitation to me for doing a review for Hallmark Cards. It was a sweet gesture and truly an honor to do this review! 🙂


Parnevu Shining Gel Review – A Gotta Have Product!

 

 

 

 

Hair Care Products for Healthy Hair

 

I was inspired to try the shining gel, and also delighted to be able to do a review for this particular product. 😉

 

 

 

 

I have dry hair, and that’s due to coloring it like I have throughout most of my adult life and I’m 51 years of age. I’m not that vain about letting folks know that I have a full head of a natural color of grey! Yes, it’s true. So I do take measures to keep the grey away; sometimes to the extreme. I’ve had my hair very dark brown, (close to black and my current color), blonde, light brown, and auburn brown. I’ve only bleached my hair once though. However, you get the idea of WHY my hair is so brittle and dry.

I have tried the Biolage hair care line and really liked how it softens my hair and the scent is fabulous.

However, this post is NOT about Biolage NOR how many colors I’ve used on my hair, I promise you! 😉 lol

 

 

At first glance after opening the jar, I’ll be honest, I was hesitant about using it. Although, I DID notice the pleasant citrusy aroma to it. It smells awesome! I also liked the texture of it while rubbing the gel across my fingers.

So I jumped in the shower and washed my hair, ahh, a shower ALWAYS makes me feel like a new person! 🙂 I was extremely excited about this new product!

 

 

After towel drying my hair thoroughly and brushing it through, I applied the Parnevu Shining Gel. The product went on my hair so silky smooth. And after rubbing it in for a few minutes, I noticed the brilliant shine right away! I also noticed the great manageability my hair had, my fingers laced through my hair effortlessly. Awesome! 🙂

 

However, there is one more thing that I didn’t expect, and that was I had body and I could just scrunch and finger my hair into a nice style. I DID NOT have to use a curling iron on my hair like usual. This is some nice stuff!! Love it, love it.

 

And YOU too need to try it if you have dry hair!

 

Here is what you get with the shining gel:

* Incredible Shine
* Incredible Body and Control
* Incredible Management
* Incredible Conditioning
* Incredible Citrusy Scent
ALL for one INCREDIBLE LOW PRICE!

 

Parnevu also has other one-of-a-kind products such as: T-Tree Break Control, T-Tree Growth Creme and many others.

Watkins…

 

 

They’ve been a household name since 1868! That is truly impressive. However, I’ve gotten the chance at actually reviewing one of their products. Thank YOU Darlene! She was gracious enough to send me an exquisite product for me to review. I’ve never bought anything from Watkins…..yet! 🙂 I’m sure I will soon enough.

 

 

I’ve been told by a lot of friends and acquaintances that once you have a pedicure, you will be hooked for life. LOL, Well, I’ve never had one, honest.

HOWEVER, this peppermint foot cream from Watkins tops it hands down!! 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ahh, this foot cream is extraordinarily awesome and 100% Natural! I love the texture, I love the scent, (peppermint), AND I love how soft it makes my feet 🙂

 

 

 

It’s that cool, soothing sensation that gets you, and the scent is truly amazing. I happen to love the aroma of peppermint.. Very Nice Stuff! —>>> You must try it out

Purex Crystals Review – A Fresh Outlook On Doing Laundry

 

 

Good morning, 🙂

 

 

I recently tried the new Purex Crystals. Someone in our local Walmart was talking to me about the crystals when I was in the laundry
aisle. She said it smells fabulous! I was hesitant about trying it because it’s relatively expensive. 😉

 

The following week, I grabbed it and tried it. It REALLY DOES smell fabulous! However, I just use it on my sheets and towels, due to the high cost. It makes my towels and sheets oooh so soft and leaves a wonderful, clean fresh scent. =)

 

 

The directions says to use 1 capful….I throw 2 capfuls in my loads. I love it! —  I like the “fresh spring waters” scent the best =)

 

 

The Purex Crystals is safe for all washing machines and also safe for children’s sleepwear.

Amazing Candle Review and Giveaway (Ends March 1st)

 

 

I was thrilled when I received an email to do a review and giveaway on this adorable, innovative birthday candle. It’s nothing like I’ve ever seen before! It will sure to be a big hit at any child’s birthday party. The candle comes in 4 vibrant colors;  blue, pink, yellow and red.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sunday I realized I had to go to the store and get a cake mix and frosting in order to review this candle. LOL, I was going to make my hubby a cake for Valentines day anyway…a chocolate, round, double layer, his fav.

 

 

 

 

 

 

In fact, this candle would definitely look totally awesome on a Valentine cake! 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When my husband and I lit the candle, I know the flame shot up 7 to 8 inches, at least. It was totally awesome to watch. After approximately 10 – 12 seconds, the flower part of the candle opened up and the big flame lit the small candles and then started turning around in a circle and played the tune of “happy birthday.” It brought a huge smile to my face.

 

 

 

Not only young children would love this candle, but individuals of ALL ages, and especially Grandparents and the elderly. =)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This amazing candle will definitely get a lot of oohs and ahhs at your child’s party. There’s no doubt about it.

 

 

However, (as it states on the box instructions), there needs to be supervision while using them . Always have an adult light them and instruct your child to wait until it’s safe to blow the candles out.

I now have a new countertop. For others that have seen pics of my kitchen were used to seeing a cranberry color. It’s no longer cranberry LOL It’s called “blackstar granite” It is laminate granite with a glossy finish. I love it 🙂 I will be doing a blog post after I’m completely finished with the decor of my kitchen for my craft blog.
