Come on, Spring!

I was looking through some older photos and happened upon some from last spring, which inevitably made me want the outside world to start looking a little more like this again, please! I'm so tired of the cold and snow now (even though the snow does make everything look extremely pretty!)

So, come on, Spring! Where are you....?

Allie Photography Photo Challenge

I was perusing the list of followers on my blog (yep, I do take notice) and came across Allie Photography via Adventures of a SAHM's blog, which you can find by Clicking Here where you'll set eyes on the cutest picture of a little kitten in a teacup you've ever seen!! Awwwe!

So, anyway...Allie Photography's "Happy Monday Photo challenge" this week belongs to pets/animals and so I think i'll join in with this little gem of a picture of our dog, Rozz, whom i'm sure you guys have seen 2 million times already in various pictures...we do love the little devil!

Here she is in all her puppy glory from a year or so ago:

Enjoy! And check out Allie Photography today! :)

As an added bonus, here is a more recent picture of Rozz from last summer and my friend's dog, Shushka - a very crazy little pug with a ton of personality!



Long live the freebies!

I really seem to have fallen into the couponing and freebie trap this past week or two - this weekend being the worst so far!

Anyone that knows me, knows I love a good bargain and have always been a fan of coupons but even i'm not sure to what extent a ton of free mini samples are going to improve my life in the long run - especially as I sit and order my free can of cat food for the invisible cat I do not actually own!!!

Anyhow! I don't know quite what it is that happens when you get something for free, but perhaps in this day and age getting that free sample of mayonnaise you're never going to use is like saying: "YES!!! I got something out of you for nothing, how do you like THOSE apples, mayonnaise company?!!"

There are so many freebie websites out there where you can find great freebies, giveaways, opportunities and the like and they are all scrambling to get the latest deals as and when they happen - sometimes im not even sure HOW they do it but they really must have some amazing amounts of determination and dedication (as well as free time!!).

Thank you freebie sites for pointing me in the direction of free perfumes, free trial offers, totally free (no obligation) magazines, cheese graters and doggie treats! Thank you for all the coupons I cannot currently print because I need a new printer! Thank you for the many bizarre items i'll never use (but ask for anyway) and thank you for the little gems that crop up once in a blue moon which really make it all worth while!!


Long live the freebie!!

L'Oreal One Sweep Eyeshadow and Eye Illuminator Review!

I received in the mail today a free sample of L'Oreal's Double Extend Eye Illuminator Mascara and One Sweep Eyeshahow via a Bzz Campaign at

Now, honestly, I haven't worn very much make-up since having my daughter in February and so this was a nice "treat" for me. I excitedly opened the package and got down to testing them out!

My first impressions were great! The products look very smart and chunky - I love chunky products that feel great in your hands!

The One Sweep Eyeshadow came first! I was intrigued by the thought of 3 colors being applied to my eye at the one time and didn't think it was going to work - but it did! I packed the powder on the specially designed brush and applied to the eyelid. Granted, it wasn't nearly as heavy an application as I would be able to make and blend using different brushes or separate applications but it certainly went on in one swoop and the finished look was overal very good.

If I were to complain about anything, it would be that the eyeshadow doesn't really go on as good as it would if you were to put each color on individually but it certainly does the trick and I do like the finished look although I'm not sure the re-application of the powder would be wise as you really want to avoid smudging the colors into one another if you try too hard.

As for the Double Extend Eye Illuminator; I was very impressed. The application is quick and easy and applied to the eyelashes within seconds without clumping or making an absolute mess! With the application of the top coat to finish of the look, I have to say, I love it - and this is coming from someone who is not a big fan of mascara generally speaking!

Overlooking the [slightly too light] application of the eyeshadow, the product as a whole (when applied with the mascara) looks great! Very complimentary and made for my specific eye color. L'Oreal make color for blue, green/hazel and brown eyes as well as a neutral color pallet for every eye! I had the pleasure of trying the colors for Hazel eyes and the colors really do work very well!

I would happily recommend that you try these items as they really do give you a smooth, fresh look - I may like to apply each color singularly on my next application though (and there will happily be a next time!).

Check out L'Oreal on the internet for more information on this product and maybe invest in some - a very wise purchase at a reasonable price! :)


Note: I received 2 free samples from BzzAgent in order to review this product. My views are open, honest and, as always, totally free of charge.

You really aught not to blend hot food...

I had a dumb moment this afternoon while making soup for the kids. I forgot to let the soup cool before blending it down and, so (when i pressed the button) the hot air sucked down the (now slightly soft from the heat) plastic opening in the top of the lid, blended the inner harder plastic top in with the soup and spat hot soup EVERYWHERE around my kitchen burning my finger with a rogue slice of onion leaving me with a hell of a mess, wasted soup, a burnt finger and a useless blender.

What a moron!

Won't be doing that again!!

As a BzzAgent I have been given the opportunity to try free for a month.

At first glance the site looks to be extremely viable and educational for both myself and my children. I am going to take some time to use the site with my teen over the next few weeks and come back and let you all know how it went!

If you would like to take part in a free trial of, you can do so by signing up to a basic account using this code: BUZZFA626.

Stay tuned!

Wow, I haven't posted anything here in a while - probably because I had a baby and now can't seem to do anything with two hands for more than 5 minutes a day :D Typing looks pretty ugly when you're attempting to create coherent sentences with just the one!!

I have now relearned to do many things with one hand and a baby in the other though - I could probably even take over the world single-handedly (both figuratively and literally) right about now! I'm not sure I want to be king of the world though - i'd feel like Di'Caprio in Titanic - huge ship, too much to control, big iceberg about to take me out...BAM!

That is all!!

**Kssssssschhhhhhhhhhhhhhh** Over and out!! **Kssssssschhhhhhhhhhhhhhh**
