Vino aria


I’m a wino. But what married ladies aren’t really…. 😉 I tend to gravitate towards white wines, but I do enjoy a nice full bodied red every now and then. What I don’t like is waiting on it to breathe and air out before its enjoyed. Never fear, Vino Aria
to the rescue!


It’s a handy little tool that fits right into the wine glass like a stopper. It aerates the wine as you pour it!no more waiting for it to settle and breathe before it’s ready to go! It’ll be ready by the time you sit down with a good book or the remote.


It’s a nice heavy duty plastic with a rubber stopper so there’s no leakage. It also helps in pouring it nicely out of the bottle with no drippage! It comes in a nice little package so it’s the perfect gift for the red wine lover in your life!

Surpahs Lightweight Digital Bathroom Scale Review

20141105-013813.jpg

Surpahs Shiny Small Lightweight Digital Scale is one of my new favorite things. We all hate weighing our selves, but as women its a necessary evil. I also have a love/hate relationship with BMI calculators. Its the same way when i step on my Wii Fit and it yells at me because it didn’t see me for 4 months and then give my Mii a muffin top. I get it. But I have actually replaced my old scale with this one! 1. Because it takes regular batteries instead of those ion ones and 2. its a nice all in one. You can program up to 4 people in it and it can automatically tell who is who. You can just step straight on it if you want it to register just your weight and go on about your day or you can turn it on then step on and it will give you your weight, BMI, and also give you an annoying little circle that tells you if you’re over/underweight or obese as you see below.

I have Hubby and me programed into it and we have no problems telling us apart. You can also set it to kg instead of lbs if thats you’re thing with an easy button press. It works quickly and easily and doesn’t take costly batteries. For something i love to dread its the perfect little thing! Oh and it also comes in pink 😉

Super Stroller Organizer

Children n Us makes some awesome kid/baby products! The Super Stroller Organizer is just one of them! It’s the perfect size, not too big not too small, to fit all of the essentials into! Bottle, phone, diapers, wipes, burp clothes and even an extra outfit! This is perfect for short little daytime trips. There’s tons of little pockets to fit small things in; toys, sunglasses, phone, etc. And it straps to darn near everything, including little umbrella strollers that don’t have baskets!

The ONLY downsides to this is that I wish it had at least one thermal pocket for a bottle at the young stage. And it’d be nice to have a removable shoulder strap to use when transporting it from the house to the car and the likes. But other than that its completely perfect for short outings without having to lug a huge stroller or diaper bag with me.

They’re reasonably priced on Amazon at $15.99. If you register for one thing let it be this! It’s a savior. And will only be used more as the baby’s grow older for quick easy trips.

True Sol Yacon Syrup


20140918-001033.jpg
So I’ve had the chance to ry a few metabolism boosters lately and I’m kinda loving it! The pounds are coming off slowly but that’s a bonus after being at that weight plateau for months! This 100% Yacon Syrup is not only a metabolism booster, but is also a prebiotic and a blood sugar regulator!

And I’m happy to report that I’ve seen all 3! My appetite is suppressed, my stomach feels worlds better and I haven’t had a hypoglycemic attack since taking it. I’ve heard that this is a good substitute for honey in recipes or on toast, but I’ve been using it in my morning coffee! There’s not a hugely strong taste or smell which I comforting, but there’s a slight almost hazelnut to it in my opinion. It’s a great sweetener all around!

Mega Mesh Screen Door

20140915-203840.jpg

With the fall weather approaching fast, it's so nice to kill the air conditioner and open the windows and the doors. But what if you're like me and either don't have a storm door, or have a storm door that's a pain to or doesn't have a screen. I present to you the Mega Mesh Magnetic Screen Door!

20140915-203906.jpg
It has a super heavy duty magnet that allows you and pets to go through it and then instantly seals behind you to keep bugs out. I even tried it with my cats and they had a few issues at first but once they figured out how to stick their nose through the seam they realized they could come and go as they pleased. Which may be a plus or minus given your situation.

20140915-203853.jpg
It comes with super easy to follow instructions and all you need to set it up. You can go the semi permanent route and use the double sided sticky tape to attach it to your door frame to use all year, or half the year. Or you can use the heavy duty thumbtacks to attach it for a temporary use, say during an outdoor party or if you're grilling a lot. We are currently using the tacks and they hold up wonderfully! No tearing or giving in the door at all!
20140915-203916.jpg
The magnets are placed all throughout so it's easy to open and shut, you can literally use one finger to open it, or use your body to push through it if your hands are full.

20140915-203923.jpg
This is absolutely perfect to use this time of year to save on ac costs or the price of buying new screens or screen doors. It's super easy set up and even easier use! And so far not a single bug in our house either!

Pure Raspberry Ketone Review

<a href=”http://www.tomoson.com/?code=TOPd46a368e948651c16047acfe78a90249″ rel=”nofollow”><img style=”display: none” src=”http://www.tomoson.com/images/front/pixel.png” /></a>

As a woman, we’re all constantly worried about our weight. Also as a woman, I don’t have time to work out regularly. And my evenings normally consist of vegging on the couch all evening and snacking on whatever is within arms reach. It’s a problem I know. So I decided I’d give these Pure Raspberry Ketones a try as I’ve tried other supplements to no avail.

Have I lost weight? Not too much, but I’ve only been taking them for a few weeks. But I do have to admit that i don’t munch as much as I did before. I don’t feel hungry an hour after dinner like I normally do! So I guess at least in that department we’re doing good right?

Now these do have an energy booster in them, which i can kind of feel after I take them, but its just a slight jitter and it does go away. So that’s the only downside to these. Hopefully we’ll keep using these and I’ll have an awesome update to post later!

UV Sight Blacklight

If you have pets, I’m sure you’ve all run into the occasional “puppy dog face” or the “run and hide” because they did something wrong, but then you have to figure out what it is that they’ve done. Or just can’t seem to find where that smell is coming from, whether you have a pet or just moved into a place, or you are a bit of a germaphobe. Well worry no more! The UV Sight Blacklight is here to the rescue!

This sucker packs a serious punch. Even with a bit of daylight creeping in my house, I could see, or fortunately not see, any stains! Well except the one below, which fortunately was more of a surprise and not a “I need to find this smell”. So if you’ve got pets or funky smells going on, this thing is perfect. Lightweight, compact, packs a punch, and even comes with the batteries! It’s the little things.

Pimsleur Italian Review


20140728-221158.jpg
When I was in college, I studied abroad for a few months. I was fortunate enough to land in England, and had no need to learn another language. Although we had a week off school and travelled to Europe, the 5 years of Spanish I took in high school and college helped. I squeaked by in France but Italy was next. Spanish and Italian have their similarities and I could pick up on things as I went, but there were times I wasn’t sure what I was ordering or how to get directions to something, or which train stop I needed to get off at. This would have helped me tremendously!

The lessons are 20-30 minutes long. I do these on my way home from work. They start out with conversations in the language and then break them done by phrases before putting it all together. They also break down the larger words to make sure you get the pronunciations. You repeat the words and phrases after the speaker to get the hang of it. And then at intervals you’re asked questions, to recall that knowledge. The first lesson is all about saying “excuse me” “do you speak Italian/English” and then also “I speak Italian/English” and “a little”. Then you move on to “I understand” “do you understand” and please and thank you in the next lessons. The nice thing with these are that they go back to previous lessons so you never lose what you’re learning. And the questions help you recall them. Having taken Spanish before, it was actually super easy to pick up on this one than the French I started on.

You can move on to the next lesson when you feel you’ve retained 80%, so you don’t feel you have to keep redoing it, as it will be brought up again in later cd’s. This is an easy way to learn a language and actually learn the phrases you’ll use. There’s tons of lessons, and as I said, you can go back if you need to, but there’s really no need. I feel comfortable enough that if and when I return, I’ll feel a lot more comfortable getting around and being able to ask questions!
