melissa & doug

I've always been a big fan of Melissa & Doug products. They are well-made, unique, and perfect for my two imaginative little girls, ages 4 and 7. Naturally, I jumped at the chance to review their Multi-Level Solid Wood Dollhouse, which came just in time for my daughter's seventh birthday! The dollhouse came unassembled. I'm not particularly handy, but I was able to put it together easily in under an hour. The instructions were exceptionally clear and simple, and the only tool required … [Read more...]

Liz and Dick

Elizabeth Taylor, known for her style and extravagance finds herself being admired and sometimes chased by fellow actor and legend Richard Burton. Watching this … [Read more...]

Be The Boss

Be The Boss

This is my dream to Be The Boss. This new show will appear in the land of reality TV. Why, should you tune in for another show? The answer is simple this one is inspiring. You see I hate when people are just given something. They never realize the importance of what they are given. This is a reality show where people compete to own a franchise of the company they work for. It is very personable and the activities are relevant to the position that they will have in the future. I actually … [Read more...]

Buster Approves! Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.® Products


This post brought to you by Comfort Zone® products. All opinions are 100% mine. My neighbor has the cutest dog, Buster.  Not long after we met, Buster and my daughter became fast friends.  Buster is great around everyone, always gentle, friendly and looking for attention.  However, the one thing which changes Buster’s demeanor is a thunderstorm or fireworks.  It is frustrating to see such a friendly, easy going dog become so stressed out.

Lancome Visionnaire Review 2


I love Fashion but I hate paying tons of money to look great. I believe you need two things the knowledge of what looks good on you and the skill to find it for less. I encourage you to get rid of all the items in your closet that you do not wear. They cloud up your options to make really great outfits because you can't see your clothes! If they are in good condition sell the at a consignment store or a place like Plato's closet, or host a clothing swap. Clothing swaps are a … [Read more...]

Ikea Bunk Bed Review

ikea bunk bed

I am going to be honest from the start I LOVE Ikea. I was very happy when they finally opened a store in Michigan and have been a loyal customer ever since. I would shop there every week except my husband says we can't afford it. I still haven't convinced him we could skip a few meals a week to allow me to go there more frequently. So I have resigned myself to going every couple of months and with a set budget. Some people do not understand why he doesn't allow me to go without a budget. The … [Read more...]

It feels like a soft fleece throw blanket making it easy to cuddle up in! … [Read more...]
