On the Road in April

Welcome to May, folks! We are almost half-way through 2016 – can you believe it?! Hey, I’m still over here trying to remember to write 2016 instead of 2015! Who’s with me?!

Lots of stuff happened on the blog last month, but, as always, I wanted to give a quick highlight to the top 5 posts! Here we go…

Experiencing Essential Oils – With the Homdox Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier!

I’ve been curious about essential oils for a while now. But I tend to stay away from things until the “craze” has died down, and there’s been such a craze going on with oils, am I right?

I don’t go a day without seeing a blog post on essential oils, or a pin that tells me how to use essential oils, or a friend on Facebook inviting me to an essential oils event. And like I said, I’ve been curious about all things essential oils for a while now – there’s just so much information that it’s hard to know what to believe!

So when Ella from Homdox contacted me to see if I’d like to peek through their catalog and pick a product to review, I wasn’t even thinking of anything related to oils, to be honest. When I popped over to the main Homdox site I discovered everything from Home & Kitchen products to Toys & Games, and tons more! But once I narrowed things down a little bit, I discovered this nifty little product:

THIS, my friends, is an Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier Oil Aroma Diffuser. (Say that 3 times fast!) Isn’t it cute?!

Essential Oils Diffuser 0001

I did a quickie order off Amazon for some decent essential oils to test, and once they had arrived, I un-boxed my new treasure.

Find the Perfect Mother’s Day Gift – at Uncommon Goods!

A couple years back, I was tired of purchasing the same ol’ type of gifts for friends and family. It all seemed so…routine! And BORING. And I felt like I wasn’t appreciating those I loved very well at all when it came to “gift giving”.

So I started looking for something a little different. Something unique. I wanted to find one spot I could go to see products that were fresh and new and not at all “common”. 

It was then that I discovered UncommonGoods.

Founded in 1999 and headquartered in Brooklyn, New York, UncommonGoods is a privately-owned retailer that endeavors to feature unique jewelry, designer décor, tabletop items and handcrafted gifts created in harmony with the environment, AND without harm to animals or people. All of the company operations are run out of the historic Brooklyn Army Terminal, where the lowest-paid seasonal worker starts at 50% above the minimum wage. Their mission is to support and provide a platform for artists and designers; in fact, half of what they sell is made by hand! Most of the jewelry products, home décor and tabletop items carried are created right here in the USA, and about one-third of the entire collection incorporates recycled and/or up-cycled materials. At the core of the company is a great respect for the integrity of the creative individual and the belief that it is the responsibility of UncommonGoods to use their business to impact the world in a positive way.

And let me just say right here how user-friendly their website is! I love that you can even search by recipient – men, women, babies, or even wives and husbands!

It didn’t take long for me to realize that I loved what the company stood for, but what about these products?

Of course, anyone who has been reading this blog for any length of time knows that I’m always on the hunt for neat home goods that serve a purpose, and boy, have I found some!
