New Product Review: TOPPIN HEPA Comfy Air C2 (and a Discount Code!)

Well, it’s springtime here in Central Florida once more! (Please don’t hate us – we can’t help our weather and the fact that anything that CAN bloom is already starting to.) And along with that, something else we have a hard time helping is our allergies. *sneeze*

The oak blossoms are the worst for us here. All four of us are allergic, and sometimes our reactions are triggered by something as small as a quick ride in the car. No matter what, we always try our hardest to rush inside very quickly, hoping to escape “the blossom”. Yes, we all take regular vitamins and allergy medicines, and keep the house dusted and vacuumed – the normal things. But still we struggled.

So when Osmond from Toppin asked if I would be interested checking out one of their air purifiers, I was intrigued. Why not, right? Maybe it would be helpful!

Toppin’s Comfy Air C2 True HEPA Air Purifier arrived very well-packaged, and it literally took less than five minutes to set up and get going – anyone could do it. Points for sturdy simplicity, for sure. And check out the filter it boasts!

They’re not messing around! The True HEPA is designed to remove up to 99.97% of all particles (as small as 0.3 microns in diameter!) when the nylon pre-filter and activated carbon layer filter out smoke and odors.

The unit itself is about the size of a mini tower fan, so super easy to place anywhere around your home where you may need a bit of air quality control. It runs at an extremely low noise level, and the easy-to-use LCD panel that controls the unit will keep you abreast of the filter status, allow you to create a timer, and also adjust the fan level to different settings.

New Product Review: Eco Gloves (and a FREE Giveaway!)

Well, like it or not, this lil’ pandemic we’ve gotten ourselves into seems to be sticking around a bit longer than we all thought it would. I’m sure you’re as ready to say goodbye to COVID-19 as I am, but until then, we still need to be smart about how we conduct ourselves, right? Right!

So when Jeffrey from Eco Gloves contacted me and asked if he could send me some of their product, my first thought literally was, “Well, I could use them to pump gas with, at least!” and I agreed to check them out.

Now, come on, folks. We’ve all seen the people who wear their gloves to do everything with, and then touch their face with them. Let’s be clear: I DO happen to know how to use gloves PROPERLY. There. I just wanted to make sure everyone understood that. Let’s proceed.

When my Eco Gloves arrived, I was taken aback for a moment, simply because I couldn’t believe what a small package they came in. I thought I was getting a pack of 100…oh. Look. I DID get a pack of 100. What great a great space-saving product! An entire box of 100 could EASILY fit in my purse, or diaper bag, glove box or console! SO convenient!

New Product Review: Gifts for You Now

Life has a way of surprising the heck out of you, doesn’t it? I mean, I guess there MAY be those people out there who always have everything buttoned up perfectly, but I don’t know any of them! Do you?!

Two of our very dear friends are godparents to our two-and-a-half-year-old twins. And they got the surprise of their lives not long after the girls were born when they discovered…THEY were pregnant! That little surprise just turned a year old a couple months ago – isn’t he the cutest?!

We all absolutely adore him!

Yes, life can be very surprising, but, along those lines, one thing I love to do is surprise people who mean the world to us with thoughtful gifts. And for me, if I can get a personalized gift? Even better! And it really is the icing on the cake if I can find that gift online, because I just don’t have a lot of time to go store to store looking for the perfect item these days.

So when Kate from Gifts for You Now asked if I’d like to review one of their Easter products, there was one item that jumped off the screen at me: this Embroidered Personalized Easter Basket! I KNEW our favorite baby boy would LOVE it!

Is that not the cutest?! I fell in love it with as soon as I saw it!

New Product Review: Stencil Revolution

I’m always on the hunt for unique things to use in decorating my home. Aren’t we all? I mean, we don’t all want to have the same living room decor, do we? We want something that personifies who we are and what our tastes are. We want a home that reflects US and that we’re proud of! Right?!

Glad we cleared that up.

Along my personal road to domestication, I’ve experimented with MANY different forms of decor – lots of DIY decor included in there, too. Lots of successes and lots of failures! But one thing I have never used before is…a stencil. I know, I know. I’m not sure WHY I’ve never taken stenciling into account, but I just haven’t.

So when Emily from Stencil Revolution contacted me to see if I’d like to check out their stencils, I thought it was a great idea!

I’ll be honest, it was hard for me to decide what stencils I wanted to try out, because Stencil Revolution has an amazing variety of stencils and sizes! In all seriousness, I’ll probably be back for more – they’ve sparked a few other ideas for me. Looking at their selection, I’d never have thought that Stencil Revolution is a small, family-owned operation based out of Spring Hill, Florida – their selection speaks to a much larger organization! It’s good to know, though, that when you place an order, a member of their family personally cuts, packs, and ships it directly to you!

Here’s what Emily sent me:

I had specific plans for each one, so I got to work quickly!

I started with the “gather” stencil first. I had a wooden sign I wanted to use with it, but it needed some brushing up to make sure it matched the mirrors that were already hanging on the wall I wanted to add to.

New Product Review: Velvet Caviar

Despite the title of this post, no, I most certainly have not discovered the best caviar that money can buy! I honestly don’t care for that nasty mess myself – no offense meant to any connoisseurs out there. But I think I HAVE found something special that at least redeems the name for me!

If your life is anything like mine, your life is tied to your PHONE. Like it or not, it’s how I take pictures, it’s how I do my tasks and to-do lists, it’s how I learn and even how I teach my kids sometimes! It’s an important bit of life these days, and I want to make sure I keep it protected. Ya feel me?

But it’s HARD to keep it protected! When I’m chasing 2 2-year-olds around the park and I stop to grab it to take the CUTEST pic of them coming down the slide, I’m apt to drop it on the pavement in my rush, which is never good..OR cute. And sometimes I’ve even forgotten to charge it, so it does no good for me to even pull it out – it’s dead, no pictures for me.

So when Sam from Velvet Caviar contacted me about reviewing some products, I was intrigued. First by the name, and then by my options! WOW!

Here’s what Sam sent my way:

Let’s start with the Phone Grip & Stand. I’ve seen lots of folks use these, but I didn’t really understand the “grip” part, I guess. I mean, can’t I just hold my phone? (Apparently, there are times when no, I can NOT! HA!) So I added this sweet little piece onto my current cover and decided to take it for a test drive!
