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.

Weather Proof Wicker Rocking Chair from Best Choice Products

This Weather Proof Wicker Rocking Chair from Best Choice Products is the perfect addition to my patio! I already owned a patio set, so finding additional matching furniture was a bit hard. I really hit the jackpot with this rocking chair from Best Choice Products! Although the chair came unassembled, it only took me about ten minutes to set it up. Assembled, this chair measures 24”(L) x 28.5“(W) x 38“(H). That is the perfect size to fit in the corner of my patio. I really love that this chair made from all-weather hand woven wicker. It is extremely sturdy and can support up to 250 pounds. This chair came with super comfortable green weather resistant cushions as well as a small decorative pillow. Both the cushions and the pillow were fairly easy to wipe clean without any strong chemicals. I also haven’t had any issues with the pillows fading. In Louisiana we get hours of scorching hot sun daily and I was scared it would turn the seats a yucky-green color. That was not the case with these pillows, and they are still as vibrant as ever! I was also really amazed at how smoothly this chair rocked. Since it is wicker, I expected it to be a bit heavy and wobbly when rocking. However that was not the case.  Even my three year old daughter is able to rock by herself! She actually chooses the rocking chair over the patio set we already had! I am beyond excited to show this rocking chair off to my family at our next gathering. Super cute and extremely sturdy!

Double Hammock And Steel Stand from Best Choice Products

We have been spending a lot more time outdoors as a family, and my daughter made the comment that she wishes we had a hammock. Since we don’t have any trees in our yard, I was unsure if I would be able to hang a hammock anywhere. This double hammock with steel stand from Best Choice Products is PERFECT for us! There was very little assembly required, and Best Choice Products provided all of the hardware needed. Once assembled, the stand measures  120”(L) x 40”(W) x 39”(H) and the 76”(L) x 57”(W) hammock bed fits perfectly on top. I am completely in love with the included accessory tray. I can keep my drinks, snacks, and phone nearby without worrying about it spilling or rolling off of the hammock! The tray is 4.25”(L) x 8.5”(W) x 23.5”, so it is perfect for holding all of my necessities. It features 2 cup holders, a phone holder, and a slot for books or tablets  Since the frame and the hammock only weigh 35 pounds, I can easily move it around my yard to wherever we want to relax. It even comes with a carrying case so we can pack it up and bring it camping with us! The hammock itself is extremely comfortable. It is made of 100% tightly woven cotton, so it is very soft yet extremely durable. It can fit up to 450 lbs, so it can easily accommodate two adults. This was a fantastic addition to my back yard and my daughter is beyond excited to finally have a hammock to swing in!

Order this hammock from Best Choice ProductsSears, or Walmart!

Smart Living Steam Jr

With a toddler in the house, I am constantly cleaning. I also ask “Why is this sticky? What the heck is this?” at least 5 times a day. The Smart Living Steam Jr has really helped me keep my home clean and sanitized. Smart Living Steam Jr is a hand held steamer that disinfects, sanitizes, and removes grime using 100% water. It allows me to clean my floors, counter tops, doors, windows, clothes and so much more by using continuous high temperature steam (135 C)PicMonkey Collage.png

When I first used the Smart Living Steam Jr, I was extremely impressed at how easy it was to set up. It came with a squeegee attachment, a funnel, a towel sleeve, a measuring cup, a bent spray nozzle, a round brush nozzle, a flexible extension hose, a long spray nozzle, and a door/window nozzle. I decided to test it out on my glass shower door first. All I had to do was connect the door/window nozzle and fill the Smart Living Steam Jr with water (using the funnel). Surprisingly the Smart Living Steam Jr only has a 1-3 minute warm-up time, so it was ready to go in no time at all. The cord is 9 ft long, so I was able to easily plug it in and reach the shower door with lots of wiggle room. The steam button on the Smart Living Steam Jr is easily accessible (on the handle), so I was able to steam clean using one hand! After one quick sweep across the glass door, I was amazed at how much grime came off! We have been having this door for over four years, so I was almost positive the built-up grime wouldn’t come off.

Before & After

After my experiment with the glass door, I started steam cleaning EVERYTHING. The Smart Living Steam Jr is safe for all furniture, vehicles, tile, and even insect infestations! I even started steam cleaning some of my daughter’s favorite toys! The Smart Living Steam Jr is perfect for every household and is definitely a must-have! I am so excited that I got the chance to review this, and it has quickly become one of my favorite cleaning tools.

Wooden TV Stand Media Console from Best Choice Products

 This wooden TV stand media console from Best Choice Products is the perfect addition to our family room. Although it did take a bit of assembly, I was able to put the stand completely together in under thirty minutes. The instructions were extremely clear and all of the tools were already included.  Measuring at about 58.25” (L) x 15.75“(W) x 23.5“(H), it holds my large flat screen tv as well as our gaming console perfectly. I really love that this media console features built-in grommets so that we can organize and hide all of our tv and console wires. Our last TV stand did not have those and it always looked extremely messy. The four open shelves offer plenty of storage for our Wii games as well as our gaming remotes, DVDs, and other accessories.  Since this is made of hardwood, I expected this to be much heavier than it actually is. It weighs about 70lbs and I am able to move it around the room on my own. The taupe color goes perfectly with our family room decor and gave it a very modern look. I am extremely impressed overall with the quality and look of this TV stand media center.20170123_204736.jpg

Custom Travel Mug from A&A Custom Design

This custom travel mug from A&A Custom Design is absolutely perfect for me! When I stumbled upon it on Etsy, I knew I just HAD to have it. For starters, the shop owner was extremely friendly when I reached out to her. I loved the quote and the style of the cup, but wanted it another color. She assured me that I could choose any color I wanted, so I ended up going with the glitter color “melon”. After placing my order, I received my cup about a week later. I found this to be fairly fast for a custom designed item. The item looked exactly how it did on the Etsy listing, and the color was exactly as shown. I was nervous that the glitter would fall off everywhere, but thankfully it is sealed. I even rubbed on it a bit and it didn’t leave any glitter on my hands!  The instructions say to hand wash with mild soap only and to avoid soaking or placing them in the dishwasher. Seems easy enough! The ladies at work adore this glitter dipped travel mug! I’ve been bringing it back and forth to work (it is the perfect size for my morning coffee), and I have gotten tons of compliments. I can’t wait to order a second cup for my best friend’s birthday!

bObi Pet Robotic Vacuum

My mother has three extremely large dogs, so she has a constant issue with dog hair. No matter how often she sweeps, it seems like the dog hair always returns within seconds. The kids can’t even play on the floor without being COVERED from head to toe in dog hair by the time they are done. After doing some research, I knew the bObi Pet robotic vacuum was the best thing I could ever get my mother. The bObi Pet robotic vacuum is made specifically for picking up pet hair. It can simultaneously vacuum, sweep, mop, UV-sterilize our floors making it MUCH cleaner for the kids to play on. PicMonkey Collage.jpgMy bObi Pet robotic vacuum came with a charging station, a remote, a bObi blOck, an X-amplified battery, a mop attachment, two microfiber mopping cloths, an extra main brush, two side brushes, a replacement HEPA filter, a charging adapter, a cleaning tool, a syncing tool, blindfolding stickers, a quick-start guide and a user’s manual. I was overwhelmed with the amount of accessories that came with it, but I am so thankful for all of the spare pieces in case something breaks or needs replacing. Setting bObi up was much easier than anticipated. All I had to do was plug in the X-amplified battery and turn it on using the side on/off switch. The bObi automatically came on and began to work. There are three buttons on the top of bObi’s surface: GO!, JUICE, and WAFFLES. These buttons are touch screen and allow you to control bObi’s functions straight from the source. The GO! button will have bObi start a default cleaning mode, WAFFLE will have bObi clean up a small spill, and JUICE will have bObi return to it’s charging station.PicMonkey Collage2.jpg

To test bObi out, I grabbed a huge pile of dirt and placed bObi nearby. I was surprised at how quickly and easily bObi rolled over the dirt and sucked it up with one simple pass! There was no need for it to make a second pass! While I read over the user manual, I let bObi clean up around the house. I was amazed at how easily bObi moved around our furniture (as well as our dogs and the kids)! I am also amazed at how heavy duty bObi is. It bumped into walls, chairs, toys, and even blankets without getting stuck or knocking anything out of place. It climbed ontop of our carpets easily, adjusting itself to the correct height and continued to clean without any issues!  It even went under our couches without getting stuck!  The bObi blOck came in extremely handy during bObi’s default cleaning. The bObi blOck allows me to customize bObi’s cleaning zone by creating an invisible boundary line that bObi will not cross. All I had to do was place the bObi blOck next to the dog room, and bObi stayed completely clear of that area. 20170118_165320.jpg

After about twenty minutes, I picked bObi up to clean it out (it could’ve went longer, but I was curious). The amount of dirt that bObi picked up in that short twenty minutes was amazing (and also quite gross). To clean it out, all I had to do was remove the dust bin using one little lever on the side of the device, and then I could easily dump the bin into the trash. If the cleaning brush was dirty or had something caught, I could use the included cleaning tool to dust it off and remove excess debri. Attaching and detaching the mop was equally as easy. 20170118_171805One of our favorite bObi features, is definitely the remote! I can access any of bObi’s cool features with the touch of a button! Using the remote I can schedule cleanings, send bObi in a specific location, clean up small area spills, send bObi back to it’s charging dock and so much more! I scheduled bObi to clean every day at 4:30 in the afternoon 7 days a week. After making a full clean (about 90 minutes) and autonomously navigating all of the rooms, bObi will return to its charging dock and begin to charge (full charge takes about three hours).  It will also return to the charging station at any time it detects a low battery. PicMonkey Collage.jpg

I simply can’t put into words how amazing bObi truly is! I have never seen a robotic vacuum that was able to do so much! Our bObi Pet Robotic Vacuum has not only saved us TONS of time, but we rarely ever sweep anymore! The kids are able to play in peace without worrying about being covered in pet hair. The bObi Pet Robotic Vacuum is definitely a MUST HAVE for all pet owners!
