World Vision Gift Catalog #Review: Thai Bracelet


I recently wrote about Macy's "Heart of Haiti" gift ideas, which are a wonderful way to buy gifts and help those in need. Here's another one of those posts that deserve extra notice. World Vision also has a gift catalog that can literally make a world of difference in many people's lives. Did you know that more than 800,000 people around the world were impacted by gifts last year through World Vision’s Gift Catalog that didn’t come with decorative paper or ribbon?

One Stop Christmas Hop Spotlight: #Review


A little part of us always wishes to be the hero or heroine in a book or a movie. With, that easily becomes reality. Inc. is the brainchild of husband/wife writing team Kathy M. Newbern and J.S. Fletcher, who together is the author known as Fletcher Newbern. They developed the concept and founded the company in 1992 and have written 20 of the 28 current novels available. Interestingly enough, when they aren't writing romance novels, they travel, visiting many of the exotic locations used as settings in their novels.

Happy #Thanksgiving and Redrawn #Winner plus new winners!

Happy Thanksgiving to my US blog readers! :) I wish you a safe and happy weekend with family and loved ones. I'm going to keep this post short since I worked long hours the past couple days and had to work today and tomorrow and I'd love to get a little time with my family too. So, let's get straight to the point, I received no response from the winner initially drawn for the Drenchers giveaway so I had to redraw a winner!

#EatSmart Precision Voyager Digital #Luggage #Scale -Perfect for Travels

I travel a lot, sometimes for business, sometimes for fun...lately though, its always moving back and forth for business. Unfortunately, I also seem to have to move a lot which means I pack everything away. So, most of the time, I am at the maximum weight alotment for my suitcases. Worst thing is, I have packed it so full now, that most of the time when I lift it, I kind of have a fairly good idea if I'm in the 50-51 range. That's when I don't have a scale. If I have a scale, I'll weigh myself first then jump on with the suitcase. Its pretty tough work.

#PhitGrip #PhitShop #Review: #Germ-free #Shopping

I don't know about you, but I've had plenty of experience with icky, sticky grocery cart handles. Its kind of gross. PhitGrip originally a grip for exercise machines and now they have a grip for grocery cart handles, called PhitShop. PhitShop is designed to protect you from those dirty handles.

One Stop Christmas Hop Spotlight: #MouthMan #Hoodie #Review


Have you heard of Mouthman? It has a great history! Founded by Ross Valory, Original Member and Founder of the rock band Journey, Mouthman was a concept that was years in the making, literally. One day, on a short break from touring, Ross was visiting friends in Arizona, sipping coffee and "just hanging out" as his friend's kids were tearing around the house doing "JAWS". Translation: The kids were running through the house in a single line, arms crossed one over the other, elbows out front opening and closing in a chopping fashion accompanied with monster noises. Some 20 years later, this memory just popped"into his head and thought it would be cool if there was a shirt with a graphic on the sleeves that would form a face with a mouth that would open and close when you put your arms together! So, Mouthman, the animated apparel, was born! LOL, when I saw this site, I cracked up. Its awesome! This would be such a cool gift idea!

One Stop Christmas Hop Spotlight: #Reviva Labs #Anti-aging #Review


I've worked with Reviva Labs Skincare before and enjoyed their products so much that I contacted them again for this holiday season. Reviva Labs is a company with 38 years of experience in skincare dealing with skin issues ranging from acne to aging. Now, some people may afford to be able to go to professional aestheticians but if you're like me, Reviva Labs is my personal at home skin salon at reasonable prices.This time I was sent the Peptides & More Anti-Wrinkle Cream and Swiss Apple Stem Cell booster Serum to review.

#Aurorae Northern Lights #Yoga #Mat #Review

I love yoga mats. :) I'm not a regular yoga person, which I attempted to be a while ago but I still love these mats because I can do all sorts of fitness regimes on them. I dunno, lying on the cold, hard floor really isn't my thing so yoga mats are great for that. Aurorae Yoga had kindly sent me the gorgeous purple (Energy) yoga mat from their Northern Lights Collection for review.
