Thursday, April 25, 2013 Review/Giveaway

I am sure you all have seen cars that have family stickers on their back window. These trendy stickers have really taken off in the last few years. Everyone likes personalized things, so whats more personalized than your family in sticker form?! FAMILYSTICKERS.COM is an amazing online site that lets you do the personalizing of your own family. They give you the opportunity to choose the clothes, head, body, and even the type of pets you have! has just about anything you can personalize with your family. They have stickers, housewares, stationary, ornaments, and much more! Since I only have 2 "children" that are dogs ;) , I decided I would do a review and give the stickers to my sister. I know she has been talking about how she's always wanted those family stickers. I designed the stickers online, and was thrilled how easy it was.

The application to the window is easy! Start by cleaning off your window with a window cleaner. Peel the backing off of the sticker, then make sure its aligned appropriately on the window. Press firmly and rub the sticker to make sure all of the air bubbles are out. Gently and slowly remove the other backing from the sticker and you are done!! Here is how mine turned out!

Wordless Wednesday: Mentor Headlands Beach

Hubby and I rode the motorcycle on a little trip to Mentor Ohio, which is about an hour from where we live. We enjoyed the nice warm weather while we walked along the beach. I thought this picture was gorgeous and couldn't wait to share it with all of you!

Flat Iron Experts: Avanti Ultra Flat Iron Review

Flat Iron Experts recently gave me the opportunity to review the Avanti Ultra Flat Iron. As many of you already know, my hair is naturally curly. It is something I grew to love, and makes me unique! I love when my hair is straight though, because I can actually run my fingers through it!

The Avanti flat iron I received is the wet to dry flat iron. It heats up to 450 degrees in less than 30 seconds. It has a nice digital temperature screen that you can adjust to whatever temperature is best for your hair. Another nice benefit is the fact that it remembers the heat you last had it on, which leads to a quicker styling. This flat iron will work on both DAMP and DRY hair. This flat iron has nano titanium/ceramic technology, and negative ion technology.

I am a hair stylist and I dont normally suggest using wet to dry irons on a regular basis. If your hair is almost dry and you have a few DAMP areas this is fine. I first used this iron on my sister, who has very thick hair. This flat iron glides through the hair very easily, leaving your hair shiny, soft, and straight. Below are some pictures I took of my sister before and after.

Flat Iron Experts is a girls dream, they have just about anything from hair tools, to hair products, even nail polish!

Vinyl Disorder: Wall Quote Review

Vinyl Disorder is a website that has many typed of decals, stickers, banners ect.  Their items are very reasonably priced. You can choose the size and color of your decal to fit where ever you would like to put it!

I recently reviewed Vinyl Disorder's Wall Quote, removable decals. I have seen a few wall decals in stores and havent found any that popped out at me. When I saw this quote, I decided I wanted to surprise my parents and put it in their bedroom! With a few easy steps, (peel, place, rub, and remove) your decal is now flawlessly place on your wall! The trick we when applying the decal is after you place it on the wall and rub it down, very SLOWLY peel back the backing. If you see some lifting, place the backing back down continue to rub and then peel back again.

I think this decal really jazzed up their wall!  It is very easy on the eyes, for a special trendy look! We placed it on the wall above their dresser, then added decorations. Here is a picture of the finished Wall Quote.

Wordless Wednesday: My Poor Baby Girl

Lily had to go to the vet Saturday for a hurt leg. I found out she has a slipped knee cap and a bad hip, which one day will require a replacement. She goes for consultation/surgery on the 19th of this month. Right now she is on anti-inflammatory meds to keep the swelling down because her knee pops in and out of place. She is still her normal self, playing with her toys, running around (even on 3 legs) and sucking up as much attention that mommy can possibly give. Please everyone keep her in your prayers for a speedy recovery!!

Earth Day Hop: FlowFold & BuyGreen


Welcome to The Earth Day Giveaway Event hosted by Andersons Angels and Joy of Momma Joyner. This Event features a little bit of everything to help you celebrate Earth Day anytime! Each blog has gathered up a unique Earth Day Prize Package of $25 or more so be sure to visit each blog from the linky below and enter for your chance to win some really amazing prizes! This event will end on April 20th at 11:59pm EST.

I have teamed up with two amazing sponsors for this event FlowFold & BuyGreen. Both of which are enviroment friendly.


FlowFold creates wallets made out of sailboat sail scraps. How did they come about you ask? FlowFolds were created by Charles Friedman, a teenager who had a job sewing sailboat sails in Maine. Charles carried a leather wallet that once belonged to his grandfather and eventually the wallet fell apart. He then crafted a wallet from sailboat sail scraps and the very first FlowFold wallet was born! These wallets are extremely durable, thin, light weight, and weather resistant!

I really think these wallets are unique. They are definitely a conversation starter. My husband absolutely loves this wallet. It fits perfectly in his back pocket and in his suit jacket for work! They come in a variety of colors and different styles- trifold, billfold or tarjetero. If you are looking for a durable wallet that will last, look no further! FlowFold is here!

Visit FlowFold on Facebook and on their website!


I was able to review an amazing, eco-friendly purse.... the (small)  English Retreads Beetle Bag. This stylish purse is made from reclaimed rubber inner tubes and recycled PET lining material. It is available in 2 sizes; small beetle and large beetle. Another great option is the choice of lining color for your purse.

I chose the small beetle because I thought it would be super cute for summer.  I love traveling so carrying a smaller purse is always more convenient. Whether I am on the motorcycle, or traveling somewhere local, this purse is going to come in handy. BuyGreen also has a TON more items to choose from so looking at their website is a must.

Foldin' Money-Star Design Kit Review/Giveaway

I recently got the opportunity to review Foldin' Money's Star Design Kit. I was super excited to transform money into beautiful works of art to give as presents or just to do for a fun craft.

Foldin' Money got its start when origami money was handed down from mother to daughter. These were gifts that were given to family and friends at birthdays. Sue, the creator of Foldin' Money, is a survivor of two strokes that left her unemployed due to her speech being damaged. She didn't let that stop her and she started an online business where she doesn't need to use verbal communication with others at all, and has turned an old tradition into a creative new art form.

The Star Design Kit was super easy to put together and didn't take much time at all. The kit came with the template that you cut out yourself. Follow the step by step directions included in the kit and there your have it!... a creative and unique money gift that you can put in a card for just about every occasion! They also have a variety of designs to choose from.

They offer downloadable kits so you can print them right at home! If you would like to save 20% off your order, Foldin' Money was nice enough to give my readers a promo code... RIFF2013
