Face painting set from Bo Buggles!

Disclaimer: I was provided with products in exchange for my honest opinion. Your views may differ to mine.

I was able to try out this nice little set of face paints, which you can find on Amazon, HERE!

This kit from Bo Buggles is compact, professional quality and at an affordable price, which means you can pick one up for any ocassion!

I have 4 kids and I love to get messy with them or have fun with art and crafting so face painting is on the top of our list of favourites!

I like to crack out the paints on snow days, birthdays, and even for other people's parties, even though I am no professional, the other moms like to have a go, too, because face paints always make kids chipper!

I tested these ones on my daughter with a butterfly design and they were great once they warmed up a bit and once we got in our stride.

I would have loved the palette to have been a little bigger but aside from that I am very happy with this set and will get a lot of use out of it in the coming months!

If you are v looking for a good set at a reasonable price then this might be the one for you!

1byone record player, three speed turntable! Review!

Disclosure: I was provided with products in exchange for my honest opinions. Your views may differ to mine. Thank you!

I grew up with a father who loved music, and collected a lot of old tapes and vinyl. I learned to appreciate good sounds and always has a record player.

Over the years, with the introduction of CDs and then MP3s, the record players of yesterday slowly vanished, but there is STILL a huge demand for them as there is something about the found of vinyl that you just don't get on anything else.

To move with the times, companies are now making cute little record players little this one, from 1byone, which is compact, portable, and compatible with modern gadgets like your phone so you can even still play your mp3s when you are having a break from your records, old and new!

I love the color of this belt drive record player, it is very light and I can take it with me to my friends house to listen to their records, too, and make the night a party!

I don't think records are ever going to truly go away and I am so pleased that I can get modern record players like this three speed, stereo, portable turntable, and not have to rely on old equipment to keep those classics alive!

You can find this exact record player on Amazon in a few different colors and it would make a wonderful gift for any music lover!

Valentine's Round Up!

Valentine's is just around the corner, and here are some of my favorite picks for this year's gifts!

Glass with a Twist

Get yourself an engraved glass, or two, and gift a set to your loved one! I personally love the balloon glasses and the flutes!

Newman's Own chocolates, sweet treats and other goodies!

You can grab chocolates, cookies, sweet and tasty treats from Newman's Own and turn them into a great Valentine's spread for guests, the kids or your loved one.

With various chocolate filled cups, or yummy cookies and chocolate bars or Fig Newman's, you just can't go wrong!

Divining Rod Wine

With various tasty wines to choose from, Divining Rod Wines are a great choice to bring to a meal or give as a gift - perhaps along with your engraved glass from Glass with a Twist!


How about letting your loved one pick themselves a stunning piece of jewellery from I live my claddagh ring, which sparkles and shines, from Jeulia, which not only met, but exceeded my expectations for quality and value!

For unique gifts, which suit the individual tastes of v your loved ones, has something for everyone!

I recently ordered this "Totoro before Christmas" throw blanket, which is HUGE and covers my entire couch! It is very unique and something bi would never  have been able to find elsewhere. is filed with artists, expressing their individual styles and you can pick up prints, throws, bags, pillows, mugs, you name it, there is so much choice and variety that I love to pick up gifts here because I know I'm going v to find something that suits each person I wasn't too buy for!

Fresh Flowers from a local florist!

Last, but not least, how about picking up some fresh flowers from your local florist? This time of year is the best time to support mom and pop florists instead of the big v corporations, which can sometimes be detrimental to the little guy!

We have a great little shop close by, called 'Through My Garden Gate', which will bring you the freshest gifts for your loved ones and will put live and good energy into the gifts you buy, at the best value for your buck and you can't go wrong! No gas station rises from you this year, or big companies, you hear?  You will be appreciated for it!

Unilever Has Dessert Covered This Valentines Day!

I was provided with products in exchange for my opinions. Your view may differ from mine, thank you!

Valentine's day is coming and my daughter and I went out to buy some ice cream today from Unilever brands, which reflect the colors of love with pink Popsicles, red and pink ice cream with Breyers and Good Humor and plenty of chocolate in Kolondike Bars!

You really don't have to go to great lengths to bake and make desserts this, Valentine's, just pop open one of these bars or grab a bowl of of ice cream in a pretty shade of pink and you are good to go!

Even if you do bake a nice cake for the occasion, it is always yummy to have ice cream on the top, or to the side so why not indulge!?

I personally love the Strawberry Shortcake bars and would be so happy to share the love and ice cream, too!

Pick some up at your local grocery store, today and wow your loved ones with yummy treats this Valentine's Day!

See in Mardi Gras with Divining Rod Wines!

I was provided with product in return for my post. Opinions are my own and yours may differ! Thank you!

 Marc Mondavi turns water into wine with his Divining Rod Wines, which, when met with his keen ability to locate water with his Divining Rod skills, elevated a natural wine into a supernatural one founded on intuition, good taste and craftsmanship to boot!

With a wide variety of wines, including the 2014 Divining Rod Chardonnay, (SRP $14.99) and the 2013 Divining Rod Cabernet Sauvignon, (SRP $17.99) there is truly something to entice any palate and what better sentiment for a pairing than that of the festive Mardi Gras!

With Fat Tuesday bursting open the way for indulgence and celebration tomorrow before Lent begins on Wednesday, there's no better excuse for picking up a bottle  or two to share and enjoy the fun!

You can celebrate Mardi Gras with friends and family, or on your own, with festivities on T.V. from the comfort of your cozy couch! I plan to catch up with some fun through the day but also catch the NCIS:New Orleans Mardi Gras themed special, later in the v evening, too, which is when I plan to pop open my bottle of Divining Rod Chardonnay.

So, if you see not lucky enough to be down on the ground for Mardi Gras, in person, you are lucky enough to be able to pick up a bottle of Divining Rod wine to accompany the ride through the day/evening at home.

A magical touch on a mystical day, which I personally enjoy, especially with Divining Rod Wine right there besides me!

You can find more information about these wines at the main website, or follow on Twitter, HERE, to stay up to date, as well. 

Enjoy the celebrations, responsibly!
