I have found a great alternative to the regular shoe laces.  Laces that would be perfect for children as well as people with disabilities.  I know being a larger woman, it is not always easy to bend over to reach my feet! 

What I am talking about is no tie shoe laces! 


I received a pair of hot pink ones and then a rainbow colored.  There is 2 sets in the pack.  They are simple to use and worked out good for me! 

As some of you know we rescued a almost 2 yr old sheltie named Wolfie.  One day I came through and found him chewing the shoe string in two on my new pair of sneakers.  I was glad it was the strings and not the sneaker itself!  These no tie shoelaces look just as good or better and are so much easier for me!

Grand Father Safety Razor Butterfly Door

One item a lot of people overlook until they need it is a razor.  I am sure we all have our favorite kind.  While I used to love electric ones for my legs, I also enjoy having one I can use when I am in the shower. 

Not all razors are alike though.  I have had them that cut me when I barely ran them down my leg, I have had them that went dull after one use.  So lately I have been using a grandfather razor. 

This Parker New 99R Stainless Steel razor is perfect.  It is a butterfly door safety razor.  It really will leave you with a smooth shave and a safe one at that..  Well at least that is my experience with it!  What exactly is this razor?  Here is more from the company:

I really love this one! It comes with 5 razors and a nice leather pouch.  It would make a wonderful gift for any man or woman.  Christmas is 2 months away, so if you are searching for something different but useful, remember this!  It costs $21.99 and is available on Amazon.

Men US Army Ring

When it comes to gift giving, I could sit and write lists of things I would love to get for people.  I haven’t a problem knowing what I would like to get.  The problem normally kicks in when it comes to the budget I have to spend.  So how do you find a well thought of item, that is nice and that is something the receiver will really like?

Shop Shop Shop!  Clearance sells are great.  I have bought nice jewelry that was on clearance and still have it.  Online shopping is my best friend.  Comparing prices at different places and really searching for something that I want to give someone is important to me.  One of my favorite sites that I visit is Amazon.  I have spent a lot of time finding the right birthday, holiday & just because gifts there. 

Sure, I still believe you get what you pay for.  But not as much as I once did.  I have paid 3 times in a store for the exact same item I have found on Amazon for cheap!



That makes me think of an item I was sent to review.  It is a Men’s Stainless Steel Ring Punk Eagle US Army Military band

When I first seen the price, I thought it can’t be much.  On Amazon it is selling for $14.99.  It came in, nicely packaged.  The size 12 I ordered fit John’s middle finger nicely.  He has wore it since the day it came in with no problem.  No break out, no turning green.

The ring itself looks nice.  All silver and black with nice detail.  Have I seen more detailed Army rings I like better?  Yes.  Is this one worth the price they are charging?  Yes, I believe it is.  John is really happy with it. I think it looks perfect on him.

If you are starting to think about what to buy people for the upcoming holidays then this may be something you would like to give the veteran in your life.

Disney Bambi Women’s Platform Lace-Up Sneaker

I have always been a Disney kind of gal.  I guess that is why I was over the moon when I seen a pair of Women’s platform Lace up sneakers with Disney’s Bambi on them!



Since they didn’t have my size available at the time, I decided to surprise my niece with these.  Just looking at the picture they had online, I could see how cute they were.  They came in fairly fast and seeing them in person I was still impressed.


The shoes come in a plastic wrapping, no shoe box.  The shoes them self are wonderful.  The vibrant colors all blending together to make a wonderful scene from the movie Bambi.  The shades of blues almost look airbrushed on the shoes.  The soles are nice and thick forming the platform.  They come with a nice long pair of white shoe strings.  They are not cheaply made either.  They are sewed together nicely and I believe will last a long time


I haven’t tried washing them and I couldn’t find if they were machine washable.  I might would take care with them if I did, washing them in cold water and let them air dry. 

I ordered a size 6 for my 13 year old niece and they fit her perfectly.  She hasn’t complained with any sweaty feet or blisters yet.

In my experience, finding Disney items usually come with a large price tag.  That is why I was confused when I seen these were selling on Amazon for $24.99.  I was thinking they may be a Disney rip off, but they aren’t. 

I really love these and would suggest them to anyone that loves Disney!

What is your favorite Disney Movie?  Tell me in the comments below!

Mia Sarine, 18K White Gold Sterling Silver, Cubic Zirconia Earrings

Are you searching for the perfect pair of earrings? 

I have found some that I LOVE.  They are Mia Sarine, 18K White Gold Sterling Silver, Cubic Zirconia.  These Mult Strand Crossover Half Hoop Women’s Earrings have several pros.


1.  They go with just about anything I am wearing.  This makes them perfect to take with me when I am going out of town.  No more packing tons of jewelry to match each outfit.

2.  They are easy to put in.  Each earring is one piece.  Meaning the back just flips shut once they are in your ear.  No more worrying about losing earring backs or earring. Stick them in, flip them closed and your done!


3.  They are lightweight.  I put these in my ears and forget I am wearing them!

4.  They look great.  While they are cubic zirconia, they are far from cheap looking! 

5.  They sparkle!  They add a touch of elegance to any outfit, just with the way they shine.


6.  They are quality made.  They are stainless steel covered in pure 18 karat gold.

7.  They are hypoallergenic.  My ears haven’t broke out at all when wearing them.  As I said before, I sometimes forget I have them in.

I believe these would make the perfect gift for anyone with pierced ears.  You would think, or at least I would think, that they would cost more then they do.  They are $24.95 on Amazon.  In my opinion- they are worth every penny.  If you are searching for the perfect earrings for yourself or as a gift-  Look no farther.

Oval Makeup Brush Holder, ESARORA Cosmetic Brush Holder with 10 Hole Drying Rack

In the last couple years, I have accumulated several makeup brushes.  I love them.  I love experimenting with them and seeing what pros and cons each different ones hold.  Some of them come with cute cases and holders.  Others don’t.  I was just tossing them in a small basket.

Then I seen a makeup brush holder that I was curious about.  It is one that is available on Amazon for $10.00.  Not a bad price.  Right?  I guess that depends on your budget and what you are looking for.  All I can do is share my opinions and thoughts of this holder that was sent to me.


The day it came in I didn’t know what it was.  John was having fun opening up packages and I seen him open a large brown envelope.  I asked him what it was and he said he wasn’t sure. He held it up and all I seen was 2 round stencils about the size of saucers.  He then showed me the rest of the contents.



After a few minutes I realized it was the makeup brush holder.  I took the screws and little poles and put the holder together. It was really simple to do and I didn’t need instructions to do it.  They even threw in a tiny screwdriver, which was nice. 

Once it was assembled it was almost as tall as a soda can, and as I said earlier, almost as round as a saucer.  It is made out of a hard plastic.  The one I received had a few scratches on the plastic, but the brushes will hide those. 

It really does do a good job holding those brushes and looks good on my table.  It helps me to find brushes easier without sorting through a basket.  It also works perfect as a drying rack after washing your makeup brushes.

While I personally wouldn’t give this as a gift because of the packaging, it is something that I will keep and use for a long time.  I guess for $10.00 it is worth that to me.

Health, Beauty & Wellness, save money with Groupon!

The following post is a sponsored post.  All opinions in it are 100% my own.


The other day I was out doing some shopping.  I noticed Christmas decorations already in the store I was in.  It was almost a reality check for me!  It made me realize that it was already halfway through September!  While I am one that prefers to not see Christmas items until at least November, it did make me realize how fast time was really flying.  Where did spring go anyways?

After this week things is really going to be busy for me.  I am off on a week long road trip to visit my Sister and her family.  Once I am back there will be a couple birthdays, holidays, anniversary and the start of the New Year.

While times are busy, they can get stressful.  I have one rule that I had to establish for myself during this season.  That rule is something that keeps me from going all the way insane.  That is to schedule in ME days.  This might consist of going for a conditioning treatment at my local salon,  a mani & pedi at the local nail studio  and if I really want to splurge a nice massage.



I probably couldn’t really afford to do some of those things if it wasn’t for Groupon.  I can find all the above things and more for  great deals with the Health, Beauty & Wellness Groupons they offer!  YOU can too!

With Groupon, it  will help to save on restaurants while out on the road travelling.  It will also allow me to spoil my niece and nephew. That both want 3DS’s for Christmas this year.  That still remains to be seen!


Retailers offer tons of products and services through Groupon. It is easy to use, no hidden cost or membership fees even.  With all the holidays coming up, this makes a big difference!

I love saving money when I can. 

What do you do to keep from stressing out in the busy times of your life?

#SPALIFE ionic face and neck beauty tool

Spas may be great but we can’t always go to one.  Let me tell you about the tool that helps you bring the spa to your home.

#SPALIFE ionic face and neck beauty tool

abra cadabra! ok, this is no magic wand. But what it is is the perfect tool for any one!

spa life1

1. It comes with it’s own lithium battery, so ready to use immediately

2. It feels good against my tired skin

3. It keeps my hands from getting messy and greasy

4. It helps to really rub in my beauty products, much better then if I was rubbing it in with only my hands

5. Provides a nice facial feel that keeps the blood circulating to the face.

I like it because I can use it on night creams, moisturizer, applying masks or even use it with my foundation. Of course this machine isn’t a magic wand. You must have the proper creams and things to use along with it.. It is however the perfect tool in my opinion.

Hanging toiletry cosmetic bag

When you travel, how do you carry your toiletries? 

Do you pack them in your checked in suitcase and then hope they aren’t busted when you unpack?  Maybe you pack the bare essentials in a ziplock bag and carry them on the plane with you in your carry on. 

I now have something that will make my life easier when I travel. Of course it is something that I will mainly use for when I travel in my car.  It will keep me more organized and my products safer.

It is a hanging toiletry cosmetic bag


This bag has 8 pockets total,  3 outside with one being zippered.  There I also 5 pockets inside with one being zippered.  It also has 4 elastic straps inside.  I like the fact that I can fit quite a bit of stuff in it,so I know right where to go to when I am looking for anything toiletry.  

I also love that it has a hook to hang the bag.  It can hook to things like towel racks, coat hooks even the door knob.


It would also work to hold your makeup.  It is perfect for on the go men to carry their shaving products.  While I have the pink one, the bag comes in several colors for all tastes.  blue & grey, orange & grey, Yellow & black, Red & black or like mine – pink and grey.

It also has a nice wide strap for easy carrying.  You will also find out it is water resistant and the layers make it self supporting and very durable. 

I am planning a road trip at the end of this month and I will be using mine!
