pureHeat SNUG: Wall Plug Heater

It is finally winter, which means the temperatures are beginning to drop. We don’t get much of a winter in South Louisiana, but when we do they are so uncomfortable! We are not used to being cold down here at the bottom of the boot! We end up having box heaters in each room going at full blast, which doesn’t leave us a lot of walking room. The pureHeat SNUG: Wall Plug Heater has solved all of our freezing cold issues! The pureHeat SNUG: Wall Plug Heater is a is a tiny powerhouse of heat! Big things come in small packages right? The pureHeat SNUG: Wall Plug Heater plugs directly into electrical outlet (there is also a plug option if needed) which saves me a ton of walking space and helps me avoid long cords hanging all over my floor. There are also plug ins on the side of the heater so that I can plug in other devices such as my phone charger. The top of the heater has an adjustable digital thermostat to set the target temperature to your comfort level and has an Auto Shut-Off Timer to ensure that the heater turns off after a certain amount of time has passed! I must admit that I was a bit skeptical when I first opened up the box to this heater. It is fairly small, and didn’t seem like it could warm a full room. I was pleasantly surprised! After being plugged in for less than three minutes, I could feel the heat from across the room! The pureHeat SNUG: Wall Plug Heater managed to warm our entire living area within five minutes, and automatically shut off once it reached 73 degrees inside of the house!  I am so glad we decided to give this a try! Well worth every penny!

Personalized Ballet Sherpa Blanket from Giftsforyounow.com

Some of my favorite gifts to give during the holiday season are personalized gifts. That is why Giftsforyounow.com is one of my favorite websites! Giftsforyounow.com offers personalized gifts for every age, and gender! This year, I ordered my daughter a Personalized Ballet Sherpa Blanket. This blanket is 37″ w x 57″, made of 100% polyester, and has beautiful yarn stitched edges. The adorable ballet shoes on the front with personalized name was too cute to pass up. When placing my order Giftsforyounow.com allowed me to type in Kinsley’s name so that I could see a draft of how the blanket would look. Since I absolutely loved it, I placed my order the same day. Since this was a personalized item, I expected processing and shipping times to be longer than an average online order. Much to my surprise the blanket was created and shipped to my door less than two weeks later! It looked exactly like it did on the website, and was much softer than I expected. I am guilty of early gift-giving, and ended up giving it to my daughter the same day it came in! Not only did she love the ballet shoes on the front, but it was the perfect size for her! She has been sleeping with it every night since it arrived at our door! I can’t wait to order a personalized blanket for myself and a few other members of my family! These are so easy, and who doesn’t love a nice warm blanket?

Fathead: Hulk v.s Hulkbuster Cartoon

THIS IS A SPONSORED POST

A friend of mine recently upgraded her boys’ bedroom to a Marvel Avengers theme. She picked out super cool bedding and adorable framed photographs, but she needed something to take the room over the top. That is when I showed her these super cute Hulk V.s Hulkbuster Cartoon Fatheads. Fatheads are self-adhesive high-quality images that won’t damage your walls! Fatheads are removable/reusable, and work on a wide range of wall types such as smooth walls, painted drywall, glass, metal, and sanded wood. They are not recommended for freshly painted walls (wait 30 days), textured walls, brick, our outside locations. Since the boys’ bedroom has smooth painted walls, I knew these Fatheads would be the perfect addition! Before.pngIf applying by yourself, the larger Fatheads can be a bit tricky to place onto the wall. Although they peel off easily, it can be a bit difficult to get the Fathead exactly how you want it without a second pair of hands. Other than that, application was extremely easy. The Fatheads literally peel and stick to the surface within seconds! No tacks, nails or tape needed. Fathead also offers transfer decals (Rub On Transfer) for more intricate designs. The smaller decals in this set were much easier, and we can remove them if needed to change their location. Once everything was set up and ready to go, the boys came in to see the final product! BOY, were they excited! The Fatheads are larger than they are, and super lifelike!  These particular Fatheads matched their room decor perfectly! After.pngAfter seeing the process and final product first hand, I am much more likely to purchase these decals for my daughter’s bedroom. I feel like they are definitely worth the money, and the look on the kids faces were priceless! What I really like is that if /when the kids decide that they don’t like those characters anymore, we can simply remove them and replace them with something else.  If they don’t want to use Fatheads in the future, their walls will still look as good as new! There are thousands of Fatheads to choose from, and I can even create a custom one if I don’t see exactly what I am looking for. I mean, I can even create a family mural to place in our living room! The Fathead team has created the perfect gift guide that is sure to impress everyone on your holiday list.

NewAir Portable Ceramic Space Heater: QuietHeat15

Although fall and winter happen to be my favorite seasons, I absolutely HATE being cold! I also really hate space heaters because they tend to be super noisy when everyone in the house is asleep. The NewAir Portable Ceramic Space Heater is one of the best space heaters I have ever owned, and solves all of my space heater issues! This small, yet powerful space heater can evenly heat up to 400 square feet! That means I can cut back on the number of space heaters I have around my house! It also features a temperature range of 41 degrees F to 95 degrees F so that my family and I can select the perfect temperature without still being cold, or suffocating from the heat! The remote control even lets me operate the heater without getting up from my seat. The whisper quiet operation is obviously one of my favorite features. When turned on, this portable space heater doesn’t even make a “hummm”! No noise whatsoever! I actually had to stick my hand in front of the heater to make sure I had turned it on properly! Just when I was starting to fear the upcoming cold temperatures, the  NewAir Portable Ceramic Space Heater comes in to save the day!

Light Box Arts

When we moved to a larger house, I noticed how drastically under decorated my home really was. I started looking for adorable pieces of home decor to place around my home, and stumbled upon Light Art Boxes! Light Box Arts offers lightboxes for every room, and every occasion. There are tons of art designs to choose from, which are interchangeable within the box. I can even design my very own artwork by uploading my personal photo! I chose a white box, with the “Kiss Me Under The Light” artwork, but plan on creating a personalized piece of artwork as well. Each Light Box can be displayed with the backlight on, as well as with the backlight off. The box runs off of batteries, so there is no need to plug it in. This means I am not limited to where I can place my box! I can set it up whenever I would like around my home, and don’t have to search for an outlet. I currently have my Light Box placed in my room, however I plan on purchasing additional boxes for my bedroom and my daughter’s room. These are such a cute and inexpensive way to add a little “pop” to a room!

bObsweep PetHair Plus Robotic Vacuum Cleaner

We recently expanded our family by four paws, which was extremely exciting! If you’re keeping track, we now have two cats, one dog, and a toddler. Can you say “messy house”? A few months back we invested in a  bObi Pet Robotic Vacuum for my mother, so naturally I needed to check them out again for my own home. Our cats tend to shed a lot more than my mother’s dogs, so we needed a robotic vacuum that could handle large amounts of fur. The bObsweep PetHair Plus Robotic Vacuum Cleaner is exactly what we had in mind! The bObsweep PetHair Plus Robotic Vacuum Cleaner was created with our four-legged children in mind, as well as their large amounts of fur balls. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this awesome appliance.PicMonkey Image.jpgMy bObsweep PetHair Plus Robotic Vacuum Cleaner came with a charging station, a charging adaptor, a remote control, two side brushes, a spare main brush, a screwdriver, a cleaning tool, extra screws and blindfold stickers, a mop attachment, bumper stickers, and a user manual. As always, I love that this appliance comes with so many spare accessories in case something needs to be replaced in the future. Setting up my bObsweep PetHair Plus Robotic Vacuum Cleaner was extremely easy. All I had to do was screw one of the side brushes into the vacuum, sync the remote and charging station to the vacuum, and place the vacuum onto the charging station. The bObsweep PetHair Plus Robotic Vacuum Cleaner can be charged on the charging station using the charging plates, or plugged directly into the charging adaptor. Using the charging station is easier in my opinion, because bObsweep can recharge itself once the battery gets low. After letting my bObsweep charge for a few minutes, I decided to turn it on and check out some of the cool features. On the top of the bObsweep there are several buttons and controls. There is a GO button, a Cleaning Mode button, a Charge button, a Mute button, and a Checkup button. These features can also be accessed via the included remote control, however it is nice to have them on the bObsweep as well for easy access. The remote also gave me access to additional features such as the UV Light, directional controls, cleaning schedule, wake/sleep options, and more. I set my bObsweep to clean every afternoon at 5:00 pm and it has been working like a charm. Overall, I found that this robotic vacuum was much better designed than the bObi Pet Robotic Vacuum we previously got for my mother. This design is much more sleek and user-friendly.20170919_193957.jpgWhen I ordered my bObsweep, I avoided sweeping my house two days before it arrived. I usually sweep every two days to collect all of the cat hair lying around. I immediately gave it a test run to see how well bObsweep actually worked. It was extremely cool to watch bObsweep maneuver around furniture and climb onto higher surfaces (carpet), without getting stuck. After one cycle (one hour) around my house, I cleaned out the dust trap. Might I say, I was blown away! After one cycle, bObsweep collected a HUGE amount of cat hair and dirt. I couldn’t believe how much hair and junk the bObsweep PetHair Plus Robotic Vacuum Cleaner picked up after only one round! I was actually quite grossed out. I noticed that the bObsweep has 4x boosted TurboLift™, but I had no idea it would work THAT good! The extra-long main brush and side brush did a great job of sweeping up even the tiniest pieces of dirt while the UV light eliminates bacteria and sterilizes floors! So much cleaning power in this one small appliance! PicMonkey Collage.jpgSince most of my floors are hardwood, the mop attachment for this will come in extremely handy! Whenever I try out the mop cleaning mode, I will definitely utilized the included  bObi blOck. The bObi blOck is a small device that creates an invisible boundary which bObsweep is not allowed to cross. Since this bObsweep has arrived, I have yet to pick up a broom! My house is cleaner than it has ever been, and I haven’t lifted a finger! Between the furbabies and my toddler, bObsweep has me covered! Once again bObsweep has blown me away with their awesome bObsweep PetHair Plus Robotic Vacuum Cleaner. This is definitely their most powerful robotic vacuum yet! 20170919_194614.jpg*bObsweep PetHair Plus Robotic Vacuum Cleaner is available on the Bed, Bath, and Beyond website*

Convertible Linen Tufted Split Back Futon from Best Choice Products

Since moving into our new home, we have been a little tight on space. That is why I get so nervous when family comes to town and they decide to stay at my house! We never have enough beds for anyone! Thankfully this convertible linen tufted split back futon was the perfect solution to our problem! Assembling this futon was super easy, and the finished product was just what we needed! Not only does this futon fit perfectly into our living room area (75.5″L x 28.25″W x 33″H), but it folds out into a bed (75.5″L x 43″W x 23″H) once we need to accommodate more guests! It has a weight capacity of 550 lbs, so fitting several people on it is never an issue. The split-back design allows the futon to be placed into two separate positions at once. If someone wants to watch tv while the other person naps, they can just lift their side up while the other side stays flat! Lets not forget how comfortable this thing is! I couldn’t get over how soft the cushions were! I find most futons flat and uncomfortable, but that was definitely not the case with this one! Although this futon comes in several different colors, I was beyond pleased with the blue color I selected. It was a fun pop of color to our family room! This convertible linen tufted split back futon is exactly what we were looking for!

School Supply Shopping with GoJo

While school shopping with my family, I noticed that there was only one product that all of their lists had in common: Purell! Most teachers requested hand sanitizer and sanitizer wipes as part of their classroom supply list. I’d assume this is because of all the snotty little hands that will be touching the desks and other supplies in the classroom! Thankfully GoJo.com had me covered! I received two Purell Healthy Soaps (soothing cucumber, and clean and fresh), one Purell Advanced Hand Sanitizer Gel, four Purell Jelly Wrap Advanced Hand Sanitizer Gel, and two packs of Purell Hand Sanitizing Wipes Clean Refreshing Scent. When my daughter’s teacher seen the products I had gotten, she was over the moon! Neither of us have ever tried the Purell Healthy Soaps, but these are much better than regular hand soap! Purell Healthy Soap leaves skin healthier while supporting the skin’s natural ability to protect against dirt and germs. With my daughter starting Pre-K, I can only imagine what germs she will be coming into contact with! The Purell Advanced Hand Sanitizer Gel will be perfect for in between cleans, while the Jelly Wrap gels will be perfect for her to take along on field trips. I must admit that I kept one of the sanitizer wipes for myself, simply because I love them so much! Unlike most sanitizing wipes, these Purell wipes kill 99.99% of germs while also moisturizing to keep skin soft! They are dermatologist tested and perfect for tiny hands! I am so glad I decided to go with GoJo brands instead of grabbing the cheapest off brand I could find! I feel so much more comfortable knowing my daughter is using Purell!

ZOSI 8-Channel Security Camera System

As a single mother, I am always going the extra mile to keep my family safe. Heck, as a mother in general I would do anything possible to keep an extra eye on my family and my property. I have been looking into security systems for a while, but never had the funds to actually get one installed. A $600 system, a $200 install, and a $40/month subscription fee will probably never be in my budget. That is why I was so excited to find ZOSI Security Camera Systems! ZOSI offers inexpensive security systems with simple self-installation and no monthly fee! With a wide variety of systems, I was able to choose a camera system that was the perfect fit for my home. I selected the ZOSI 8-Channel Security System with four waterproof cameras, a 1TB hard drive, motion alert, and smartphone remote access which retails for UNDER $150! This specific camera system offers USB port Back up which gives me the option backing up and transferring video footage to a USB flash drive if I would ever need to bring any footage to the police. 619MVUJ8yfL._SL1000_

This system arrived fairly quickly and included one H.264 8CH 1080N HD-TVI DVR , four 1280TVL 720P Bullet Cameras , four 60FT CCTV cables,  two 2V/2AD power supplies, one splitter cable, and one 1TB pre-installed hard drive. I was surprised at how easily everything was to set up. From start to finish, this system was up and running within two hours. I believe installing the cameras themselves is what took the most work since we had to figure out what we wanted to focus the cameras on. Once we installed the cameras on each end of the house, we wired them to the DVR which is located in my bedroom for easy access. The DVR easily hooked up to my internet with a ethernet cable (not included) and connected to my TV with an HDMI cable (not included).  The DVR walked me through a quick setup (date, time, admin password, etc), and within seconds our real-time video was showing on the screen! Since this system connects to our personal wifi, there is no monthly system fee!20170703_093450.jpgI was able to set my DVR up so that all four cameras were showing on the screen at once. By double clicking a specific camera, I was able to zoom in and watch one camera at a time. The ZOSI system was extremely easy to navigate and within a few minutes of messing around with the system I was able to rewind my footage as well as set motion detection and alarms. I set the motion detection to activate when I am not home or when everyone in our home is sleeping. To save hard drive space, Motion Detection Recording only records when motion is detected. I can continuously record for up to 30+ days before running out of storage space. I set the device to automatically overwrite the oldest internally stored footage so that I wouldn’t need to save unwanted footage. If my footage needs to be saved, I can transfer those video files to a USB or external hard drive for use later. On each camera, we are able to see the date as well as the time the footage was captured. If needed, I can rewind and save this footage down to an exact second to show police. 20170703_093456.jpgBy scanning the included QR Code, I was also able to download a ZOSI app onto my phone. This allowed me to view the live-feed from my mobile device. I can play back recorded video, as well as take screenshots. This allows me to keep an eye on my family and my home, even when I am unable to be there in person. 20170705_092437.pngIn the event that I need to expand my ZOSI 8-Channel Security System, I can add up to four more cameras to my DVR. Additional cameras, as well as accessories and larger systems can be purchased on the ZOSI Amazon page. I can not explain how much this system has given me peace of mind. Being able to keep an eye on my property and my family from anywhere in the world is such a blessing. This system is worth every penny, and works just as good as more expensive competitor brands.
