Don’t you just love to iron? I used to watch my mom iron clothes and have been amazed at how much time she’d spend on it and how great everything looked. I must admit, however, that ironing is not my favorite chore, but sometimes it has to be done. And since I’m not quite as good as my mom, I can use all the help I can get! Enter Hamilton Beach! Recently the folks at Hamilton Beach contacted about reviewing their Durathon Iron. [Read more...]
Space is one of the number one things that people look for in top notch interior design, and being able to create it while fitting everything you need in a room can be somewhat of an art. You also don’t want things to look too sparse. Either way, the first step in creating a great space is to clear away any clutter in the room. [Read more...]
As you may know, I’m a proud Cat Mommy! The Simply Sweet Home cats pretty much rule this place; I just live here. We recently received samples of Tidy Cats with Glade Odor Solutions. We’ve always been Tidy Cats customers ever since I brought Rebel and Dixie home, and I was really excited to try this new variety. [Read more...]
As I clean house, I love to freshen things up with a little fragrance. I was recently contacted about reviewing some new limited edition scents from Air Wick. They have partnered with the National Park Foundation to craft fragrances inspired by the natural elements found in our national parks. The new limited edition scents introduced this spring are: Grand Canyon, American Samoa, Denali, Hawai’i, Virgin Islands and Gulf Islands.
Currently I’m using the American Somoa scent in my kitchen. Since coconut is one of my favorite scents, I really love this fragrance. It is a very clean scent and has a tropical island appeal too. And because it is coconut, that also makes it great for the kitchen, although I think it would be perfect for any room.
I’m also using the Denali scent in my main bathroom. It has a fresh linen scent, and it really gives your bathroom a “just cleaned” scent. Because it has cotton/linen scent to it, it would also be great for your bedrooms if you use fragrances in those.
And then I also got the Hawai’i scent. I haven’t used it in the house yet, but I think it is going to be great. It has a tropical fruit smell to it, almost like a Hurricane drink. I’d probably use this in any room except the bedroom.
And then the Grand Canyon has a very sweet, floral fragrance to it. It’s so nice! And I think it would be great in an entry hall, bathroom, or living area.

I love cooking, but I do NOT love washing dishes! Even if I use the dishwasher, I usually have to do a lot of pre-rinsing and washing, particularly on sticky foods like cakes and casseroles, and if I don’t do this, I will mostly like have to re-wash dishes and that is no fun at all. Not to mention, it is a huge waste of my time. (And if you forget and leave these dishes in your dishwasher, they can get pretty disgusting!) With all this in mind, I was happy when I got the opportunity to take the Finish Rise & Shine Challenge this week from Finish® Quantum®.

I’ve had the opportunity to review some great products this year, and I want to personally say thanks to everyone who sent me anything and/or provided products for giveaways this year!

There’s nothing I hate more than getting a stain on my clothes! Unfortunately I’m a wee bit accident prone, so occasionally stains happen, especially in the form of food and drinks! The latest product from Purex is designed to help us fight those stains, leaving our clothes fresh, clean, and spotless! Purex Plus Oxi is not just a laundry detergent, but a stain remover and pretreater. [Read more...]
In the past I have used a bulky vacuum cleaner along with a dust buster, and I’ve been wanting something to replace both of these. Regular vacuums can be very heavy and inconvient to lug around; plus it gets annoying dealing with the cords and having to constantly plug and unplug. And dust busters aren’t exactly fun to deal with either, as you have to bend or kneel down to use them.
But I’ve just discovered something that makes cleaning your floors a breeze! I’m talking about the Rowenta RH8559U1 Cordless Bagless 18-Volt Stick Vacuum Cleaner. I recently got the chance to review this product, and I love it!
