Personalized Ornaments For You Review

I simply LOVE this time of year!!! The holidays are so much fun with my grandchildren. <3

Even though I have plenty of ornaments and decorations, I always find myself in the Christmas department in whatever store I happen to be at. I’m always shopping for new decor for my tree/s. lol =)

This year – 2018, I was overjoyed to get a special email about a collaboration from Stephanie was so kind to offer me a $50 Gift Certificate to shop on their site for a return review about the personalized ornaments and their website.

Let me tell you…I had some fun shopping for those ornaments! <3

The website has a wide variety to choose from. I personally like their dog and cat ornaments. I especially like how they’ll add a paw print on the product for FREE! Those are adorable.

I promptly received the ornaments of my choosing. Speedy turn around for what I had ordered.


And hey…about the products themselves —

Excellent quality! When you hold these products in your hands, you can feel how sturdy they are.

They are also, larger than what I expected. That’s always a plus.

In addition, you can definitely tell that a lot of detail went into creating these adorable ornaments.

I WILL gladly be a return shopper!


The website is very well put together. has it all properly laid out for you.


The collection categories are on the left, and the top menu has all the essential linksAbout, Contact, FAQ, Shipping Info, and Their Blog.

In addition, the site has a lengthy category list. Everything from parents, grandparents, animals, graduation, birthday, baby, patriotic, occupation, religious, teacher, retirement, engagement, and many more.

I really love the Christmas Countdown at the top of the site, where it has days, hours, minutes and seconds. Charming idea!


I think the best feature that Personalized Ornaments For You has is remaining on-trend. The staff is consistently searching for all the new trends for their products and adding new themes to add to their Christmas Ornament Collection

Excellent website to shop for the holiday season!

Happy Holidays To You All! <3

Have fun shopping! =)

I was not compensated for this review, except for receiving the $50 gift certificate

Thank you for reading! And please, give Personalized Ornaments For You some love on their Facebook Page. <3


iPad Case With Keyboard Review


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 🙂

You can check out all the details about the New Wireless keyboard leather case for Ipad 2/3 the new iPad with stand-PURPLE if you like.

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


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

Easy DIY Cake Pops Kit


From Cake it Easy

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


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


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


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


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.


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. 🙂

My Grandson! Isn’t he handsome?!! 🙂

Hallmark Cards Review

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

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.



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.

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


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

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.
