Want A Relaxing Aromatic Bath?

Picture of the box of Angele Bath Bombs.These Bath Bombs from Angèle are wonderful.

They fizz! A lot. And by a lot I mean for about a minute. I tried to take a video but my phone kept freezing up. I did get some pictures.

All of the Bath Bombs smell wonderful, and that is with the wrapper on. I left the box out on the table for a day or so because it made the room smell nice.

My husband choose this one for me to use first. He liked the smell of it.

Bath Bomb before it gets thrown into my bathtub.So I started the bath and unwrapped the bomb and dropped it in there. It did look sort of like an explosion. The water started bubbling like a boiling pot. It was neat.

Picture of the bath bomb in my tub.

The fizzing lasted for a while.


Picture of the bath bomb fizzing in the middle of my tub.

I managed to get in the tub before it stopped. The fizzing feels good too.

These Bath Bombs are huge. As you can see the water turned pink. And the whole bathroom smelled great. It made me smell good too, for quite a while afterward. My husband liked it.

It will do your skin good too. They contain Coconut oil, Shea butter, sodium bicarbonate, citric acid, Mediterranean sea salt, witch hazel, & natural mica colorants. When you get out of the bath your skins feels soft and moist and it stays that way for a while.

I loved soaking in the tub with these.

The box comes with six different scents:

Bubbly (champagne fragrance with bath tea & roses)

Balmy Beach (ocean breeze fragrance & sea salt)

Chillax! (eucalyptus & spearmint oils)

Dulce Colada (strawberry fragrance & coconut oil)

La Bomba (pink grapefruit fragrance)

Lavender Tea (lavender fragrance & bath tea)

This Gift Box would make a wonderful gift for any woman.

Calling All Root Beer Lovers!

Root Beer of the Month.I have had a root beer occasionally all my life. About 15 years ago I developed a real love for it. These days I drink it instead of other soda if it is available.

I had no idea there were so many different brands.

Apparently there are small bottlers all over the place.

I got to try the new 6-Pack Variety Root Beer Of The Month Club. You get one 6-Pack with 6 different brands of Root Beer each month.

So you would end up trying 72 different brands if you stayed in for a year.

Or you could get the 12-Pack per month option, if you wanted more than that.

They do have a regular Root Beer Of The Month Club too. In that one you just get a 6-Pack (or 12-Pack) of the Root Beer of the Month. Each month is a different Root Beer.

I really wish I lived close to one of the stores so I could go in and buy this. I would stay in the club myself if the shipping cost wasn’t so high. I liked every one of the root beers they sent.

The 6-Pack of Root Beer sent to me.My 6-Pack included a Bulldog Root Beer Soda, Frostie Vanilla Root Beer Soda, Hippo Root Beer Soda, Moose Wizz Root Beer Soda, Old Soaker Root Beer Soda, and River City Root Beer Soda.

My favorite of those was the Hippo. I don’t know why. My husband liked the Vanilla Frostie best. All of them were good.

If you are near one of their stores (Redmond, Lynnwood, Puyallup, Tacoma) you should definitely stop by and check it out. And if you are gonna be coming to Arkansas, bring me some Root Beer!

Of course if you have the money to pay for shipping, this club is a great way to try out new brands. It would also make a great gift for anyone who loves root beer.

Please check out their Facebook page, and follow them on Twitter too.

A Better Place For His Stuff

Grab N' Go Organizer.The Grab N’ Go is a much better place for the man in your life to put his stuff.

It has spaces for keys, phones, watches, wallets, and whatever else he stuck in his pockets during the day.

My husband used to come in and put part of his stuff on the table, and part on his nightstand, and part of it on his desk.

Now that he has his very own organizer he is putting most of his stuff on it.

He put the organizer on his computer desk and now he keeps his phone charger and clip on it. He has also been leaving his phone, calculator, and an occasional pair of pliers or screwdrivers.

He has the smoke version.

Smoke Grab N' GoI like it better than the white one.

It seems like a really sturdy little organizer that should last a few years.

Check out this video:

You can buy one for your husband on the Finder Enterprises, LLC website. It would make a great Fathers Day Gift.

Please check them out and follow them on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and YouTube.

Great Gifts From YourNovel.com

YourNovel.com makes personalized books that turn regular people – like you and me, into the stars of the story.

Right now they have several books with Christmas themes that would make great holiday gifts.

This one is :
The Magic Snow Glove Personalized book from YourNovel.com.

The Magic Snow Globes by Susie Taylor
is a personalized story about a very special Christmas gift, one that is priceless, timeless, selfless. The hero of our starring couple finds it unexpectedly. Actually, nearly everything about his finding it is unexpected. He hopes his lover will agree that it is special, even if it requires suspending disbelief and just going with the moment.
She does, and the result is a wondrous, amazing journey through layers of reality and fantasy that teach them about life and each other while entertaining them with moments of delving into the unknown and carrying them through heights of passion that overwhelm them and take their breath away.
This is really a sexy tale set around snippets of holiday scenes that brings with it a witty, charming sense of what a loving relationship is really about. It is a special gift you will enjoy giving and reading.

The cover shown is what it looks like with a photo added inside the globe.

The Magic Snow Globes is now available as a paperback, hardback and eBook. If you order an eBook, it will be sent to you via the Internet in a matter of hours from when you order. You must provide a valid email address. Paper & hardback books follow normal delivery times.
Regular pricing: PB $49.95, w/pic $74.95; HB $94.95, w/pic $119.95; eB $39.95, w/pic 64.95.

I was allowed to choose one to review. I decided to pick one for Valentines Day instead of Christmas, for my husband.

I chose A Ren Faire To Remember by Madhavi Krevat, which is about a couple who win the trip of a lifetime to the worlds largest Renaissance faire, and end up transported back in time to the REAL renaissance, where they have some adventures.

It was a pretty neat story. The best thing about it though was that it used me and my husband as the main characters, including info such as our eye colors, the name of the places we work, the type of vehicles we drive, our favorite radio station, and the perfumes we wear.

You can choose to have the book be either “naughty” or “nice” too. I chose nice, which means there are no steamy scenes in it.

This is a great way to give a really personal gift, especially to a couple.

These books are easy to order. Just go to the website and pick out the book you like best.  During the order process they have you fill out a questionnaire about the couple you want to star in your book. You just fill all that out, along with your payment information, and shortly after you place the order they will send you a confirmation.

If you order an eBook it will be sent to you immediately. I ordered a paperback, and it arrived within a week. It is made with thick paper and seems to be very well bound. I expect it will last for years, with proper handling.

Great Gifts For Foodies From The Artisanal Kitchen

The Artisanal Kitchen Logo.Getting the chance to review some items from The Artisanal Kitchen™ was really exciting.

I’m not a great cook but I do love to eat, and since you have to cook (often anyway) first then you really should have the best ingredients you can get.

The Artisanal Kitchen™  offers all natural products that are made in smaller batches and are high quality. The spices are free of preservatives, and are hand-bottled locally.  The Grains, Pasta, Rice, & Beans come in small bags (the everyday items) that hold 12 oz.

For most of the items that is at least enough for two dinners, unless you are cooking for a horde, which I try my best never to do (I leave that for other family members).

The Artisanal Kitchen™ is going to be offering  their grains, rices, and beans, in special Mason Jar Gift sets this holiday season. Each of the Gift Sets will include two packages of the products, one in a “beautifully decorated jar and another in our everyday packaging that includes back panel of great recipe ideas and directions”.

These pictures show Gift Sets with two packages of the Flageolet Beans.

Gift Set Flageolet Beans BasketGift Set Flageolet Beans Box.

Or you can get sets with several bags of different products. This one has several different types of rice, including Purple Sticky Rice, and Bamboo Rice.

Rice Gift Box from The Artisanal Kitchen.

The Artisanal Kitchen™ sent me a gift basket to review. It was much larger than I expected. It came in a box and was wrapped really well.

My Gift Basket from The Artisanal Kitchen wrapped for shipping.I like the paper it was wrapped in, it is really pretty, and I’m keeping it. I have no idea what I’m gonna do with it, but I’ll find something.

Basket with plastic cover.

Under that was some plastic covering it to protect it from getting wet.

Gift Basket from The Artisanal Kitchen.The basket contained a lot of great items. Packages from The Artisanal Kitchen.This Gift Basket contained:

The total value of this Gift Basket (including shipping) was $165. That is a lot of great ingredients to use in my kitchen.

The packages have recipes on the back too, in case you don’t know how to use that particular item. That is a good thing because I have never even seen Amaranth Grain before much less used it.

I loved this Gift Basket just for all the items in it, but the basket itself was lovely too.

Metal Basket from The Artisanal Kitchen.It will make a great decorative pot for keeping flowers in or even a planter maybe.

Any of these Gift Baskets would make great presents for all the cooks you know. Especially if you want to get invited to dinner.

I really liked the basket they sent me to review.

Early Christmas Shopping?

That is a great excuse isn’t it?

I have been buying a few things lately that we don’t necessarily NEED. Like these Hotter shoes –

My Runba shoes from Hotter USA.I didn’t really NEED any new shoes. I could have worn the old ones I have, but I really really wanted some shoes that would not hurt my feet(or at least hurt them less).

The Neon shoes I got from Hotter to review were very comfortable, and all of their shoes are supposed to be very comfortable.

I went looking at their website and they have lots of nice dress shoes. I fell in love with the Rumba and amazingly enough they do have them in wide (on the black ones anyway), so I could not resist. I bought a pair of the black ones in wide.

I did get the discount for it being my first purchase from them, and they had a sale going on, so I got the shoes for much less than the regular price, which made me very happy (not to mention the hubby).

The new shoes arrived in time for me to wear them to my father-in-laws funeral, and they are the most comfortable dress shoes I have ever worn. I spent much of the day standing up and while my feet did start to hurting later in the day it wasn’t nearly as bad as it could have been.

If I had been wearing my old shoes I would have had to take them off part way through the day, because my bunions would have been screaming at me.

So I am really happy with the dress shoes. If you are looking for some new ones (or a present for someone ) be sure you check out the Hotter USA website.

My husbands cell phone was not working right anymore, so I also bought me and the hubby new phones from Tracfone. The android phones they came out with recently.

We already had phones from Tracfone, and didn’t want to lose the minutes we already had, and we couldn’t find other phones that we could afford that would actually work where we live.

This area has lots of dead zones, and the only reason it works at our house is because we have wi-fi. We switched to phone service from the cable company because it was cheaper than the land line, and my Cap-Tel (captioned calls) phone would still work. My Cap-Tel Phone for captioned phone calls.

The new phones mean that I am finally able to get an Instagram account. If you are on Instagram would you please follow me? Pretty please? With sugar on top? If I throw in a cherry?? Thank you!

I’m still learning how to use the phone, and the camera.  I didn’t think it would be that complicated, but it is going to take me a while to figure everything out. I am loving the camera on the phone. It is much easier to use than that old digital camera I was using.

I told my hubby that all this stuff is our Christmas. He seems to be ok with that. We will see.

Have you done any Christmas shopping already? Regular shopping? Halloween?

Barbecue Grill Light From Kuisiware

Kuisiware Grill Light I was going to put this Barbecue Grill Light from Kuisiware on our grill and actually use it out there. I was thinking about doing some BBQ burgers and chicken even.

The thing is, when my hubby put the grill up he also shoved some stuff in under it and over it. So I would have to move all that stuff.

Normally that would not be a problem, but when I started moving things I got swarmed by mosquitoes. And then I saw the condition of the grill, so I decided to wait and let the hubby deal with that. It looks like it got rained on (I think he actually forgot to put it up immediately last time it was used) and it was muddy.

It doesn’t really matter. This is a Grill Light that is heat resistant and intended to be used on a Grill, but you can use it wherever you need a light.

My mom saw it and said it would be great to put over the stove. I couldn’t find a spot in there to attach it to, and I also need a light for my desk, so I put it there.

Kuisiware Grill Light lights up my desk.


I don’t really have room for a desk lamp. Not without getting rid of somthing and I don’t want to get rid of anything. This little Grill Light puts out a lot of light. It lights up my planner really nice.

It should. It has 10 super bright LED lights.

Kuisiware Grill Light is bright.

One really neat thing about it is that it swivels. That is great no matter where you put it. You can point it down at the food on the grill (or your desk) or up at the ceiling (or out at the yard).Kuisiware Grill Light swivels.

The adjustable screw handle lets you attach it to just about anything. So you can move it around and it use wherever you need a light. You could use it inside during the winter and outside during the summer.

It uses 3 AA batteries(included in the package!) for power, and you get about 12 hours of use before you have to change the batteries.

Kuisiware has a 30 days money back guarantee + 12 months of Free Replacement Warranty.

Please follow Kuisiware on Facebook and Twitter.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Want A Cute Leather Charm Bracelet?

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

The sort of thing tweens and teens would love to wear? For that matter just about any women would like it for less formal wear.

Leather Charm Bracelet promo picture.

It would be especially nice for wearing while boating as one of the charms is an anchor. Than again I have no idea how sea spray might affect it. It shouldn’t be any worse than getting caught in the rain and that can happen to anybody.

Anyway…Penny Auctions Canada sent me a leather charm bracelet to review.

My leather charm bracelet.The bracelet they sent me has four strands, two with charms, one braided, and one plain.

It is pretty sturdy and has a nice hook on one end and a chain on the other so it will fit pretty much anyone.

The materials used to make this bracelet include leather, alloy, wax linen cord, and suede. They have them in different colors too but I really like this blue one.

Penny Auctions Canada has auctions where you bid on items and each bid increases the price by a penny. You do have to buy your bids though (except for the Daily Deals which you can bid on free!) and the bids cost $0.75 each. A package of 25 bids costs almost $19.

New sign ups are entitled to 5 free bids – you just have to send them an email to affiliate@PennyAuctionsCanada.com that includes your username. If you buy 25 bids you can also get 25 free bids using code Tomoson25 at checkout.

Visit PAC on Facebook and follow @pennyauctionsca on Twitter for more information and to keep updated on giveaways and special offerst.
