Lush Decor $200 Giveaway (Ends 2/8)

Screen Shot 2015-01-24 at 9.35.27 PM
I have been on a mission lately to decorate my home on a budget and was introduced to this great site called Lush Decor. They offer quality comforters, quilts, window treatments, shower curtains and more at great prices. I had the best time looking through their site. I was so surprised to find their prices were very reasonable.

My first stop was to check out the Quilts. There are some really nice 2 and 3 piece sets available. I ordered the set above for my daughter. Since we are getting ready to paint her room, but she is undecided on what color she wants, I thought this would be great because it will go with pretty much anything.

I kind of have a thing for curtains. Some girls collect shoes and bags, but I seem to have a curtain addiction. I really like having Blackout Curtains in the house to keep the light out and Lush Decor makes it affordable to cover the windows. They have a huge assortment of styles and sizes available.

If you are in need of a gift such as a housewarming or wedding gift, Lush Decor has got you covered. The Bamboo Throw, for example, would make a great gift for any occasion.

I think my favorite section to browse through was the Shower Curtains. They have some amazingly pretty ones. It’s enough to make me wish that we used a shower curtain instead of a glass door.

Del Taco Giveaway: Try the #TurkeyTaco and Win $20 #EatWellWithDel (Ends 1/29)

Del Turkey Press1
I try to avoid fast food whenever possible, but honestly, there are times when dinner just doesn’t get made on time and people are hungry. My family’s favorite place to dine out (fast food wise) is Del Taco. Not only is it budget friendly, but the food is really fresh and tasty every time we visit.

Del Taco has brought back their Turkey Taco to the menu and I am soooo glad. This is my favorite thing to order when I go there. Not only are they delicious, but they have 33 percent less fat than Del Taco’s seasoned beef. At only 150 calories per taco, I can easily get away with eating two without feeling guilty and I don’t feel like I am starving afterwards either.

Del Turkey jennio

Del Taco’s turkey menu features the following items (price and participation may vary):

Turkey Tacos: a crunchy corn or soft flour tortilla layered with lean, seasoned ground turkey, crisp lettuce, and freshly hand-grated cheddar cheese, all topped with hand-made pico de gallo.
Turkey Combo Burrito: lean, seasoned ground turkey, with slow-cooked beans made from scratch, freshly hand-grated cheddar cheese, and zesty red sauce, in a warm flour tortilla.
Turkey CrunchTada Tostada: a thick, wavy, crunchy corn shell layered with slow-cooked beans made from scratch, signature tangy taco sauce, lean, seasoned ground turkey, crisp lettuce, and freshly hand-grated cheddar cheese.
Deluxe Turkey Taco Salad: lean, seasoned ground turkey, with slow-cooked beans made from scratch, crisp lettuce, fresh tomatoes, hand-grated cheddar cheese, cool sour cream, tangy guacamole, and mild taco sauce, served in a crunchy tortilla bowl.

Buy it: If you’re ready to give the Turkey Taco a try, (which I highly recommend), be sure to bring this coupon with you that’s good for one free turkey taco with purchase.

Win it: One of you will win a $20 Del Taco gift card so that you can taste the magic that is the turkey taco! Please enter through the Rafflecopter below. It may take 30 seconds or more to load.

VTech Switch & Go Dinos Turbo Bronco the RC Triceratops Review & Giveaway (Ends 12/18)

Switch & Go Dinos Turbo Bronco the RC Triceratops
Disclosure: I received a free product as part of this review. All opinions stated are my own.

If your kids are fans of VTech Switch & Go Dinos, they will love the new VTech Switch & Go Dinos Turbo Bronco the RC Triceratops. It’s has all the fun features you love about Switch & Go Dinos, but it’s the first dynamic remote control dino from Switch & Go Dinos Turbo. It transforms from a fierce Triceratops to a sleek race car with the push of a button on his remote control! Your child can use the remote control to move forward, backward, left and right in both vehicle and dino modes. Then charge the turbo boost lever to give him a burst of speed! What fun.

vtech racecar driver
Your child can press the buttons on the remote to turn on his headlights, hear realistic sound effects and learn cool facts. It’s really fun to switch between the modes of race car driver to dinosaur.

vtech dino
Bronco’s LCD screen displays cool customizable dinosaur eyes and driver animations, and kids can choose from four different styles.

Overall I found this toy to be fun and durable. This toy is geared for kids ages 3-8 years, and I agree that is about the right age group.  I personally feel that it’s more fun than the previous Switch & Go Dino toys that we’ve owned because of the remote control feature. It gives you the feeling of being more in control, which is just more fun for some reason. It does however require a total of 8 AA batteries to run, between the toy and the remote,  which are not included, so if you have one of these under the Christmas tree, you’ll want to buy those in advance.

Buy it: VTech Switch & Go Dinos Turbo Bronco the RC Triceratops can be purchased here.  (Ages 3-8 years, MSRP: $44.99)

Win it: It’s time to get excited, because one of you will win a VTech Switch & Go Dinos Turbo Bronco the RC Triceratops to call your own. Please enter through the Rafflecopter below. It may take 30 seconds or more to load. Please note that due to the timing of the giveaway and shipping processes, this prize may not make it in time for Christmas.

Eartheasy LifeStraw Family Review & Giveaway (Ends 11/16)

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 1.47.32 PM
Being prepared for an emergency is something I feel very strongly about. Being that I have a family to look after I don’t want to take any chances when it comes to being ready for the unexpected. I especially feel that having a clean source of water at all times is of the utmost importance. While stocking up on bottled water is an option, there is only so much you can carry if needed in a worst case scenario. A more likely scenario for us city folk is the dreaded boil notice. You may be familiar with the drill where some contaminants get into the local water supply and you have to boil before drinking or brushing your teeth, etc. There is an easier way and I am happy to share it with you.

Eartheasy LifeStraw Family Review
The LifeStraw Family from Eartheasy is an amazing water filter & purifier. It filters up to 18,000 liters of water, enough to supply clean drinking water for a family of five for up to three years! LifeStraw Family is a point-of-use microbiological water purifier capable of removing viruses, bacteria and protozoa (parasites) to protect against waterborne diseases. This is perfect for using at home or in the event that you needed to find some other source of water (i.e.: river, pond, lake, rain water, etc.) it would work for that as well.

Check out the video below for a demonstration as to how LifeStraw Family works.

Buy it: Be prepared with a LifeStraw Family. You just never know when you’re going to need one. It would also make a great gift for the prepper in your life. As an added bonus, for every LifeStraw water filter sold, a child in Africa receives clean water for an entire school year. Go here for yours.

Win it: One of you will win a LifeStraw Family of your very own. Please enter through the Rafflecopter below. It may take 30 seconds or more to load.

Neater Feeder Dog Bowl Set Review & Giveaway (Ends 11/9)

Screen Shot 2014-10-26 at 12.14.17 PM
I love my big dog, but he sure is messy. My 70+ lb. mix of husky, lab, heeler, shepherd (and who knows what else) is a very good and loving dog, but he is also one of the worlds sloppiest eaters and drinkers. He not only spills his food often, but when he drinks, he creates a huge wet mess on the floor. Between him and my 3 kids, I can’t tell who is messier. It’s insanity. Lucky for me, I recently discovered the Neater Feeder.

neater feeder 3
The Neater Feeder is an amazing food & watering station for dogs or cats that keeps the mess off of the floor! It comes in multiple sizes to suit your pets needs. For my big dog, we got the Large Dog Neater Feeder Deluxe with Leg Extensions in Bronze. It is the greatest thing since sliced bread. No, I am not exaggerating. This particular version of the Neater Feeder is Created for taller dogs weighing 30-100 lbs. with a 20″+ shoulder height, which fits my dog perfectly. It comes with one 7 cup standard stainless steel food bowl and one 9 cup extra capacity stainless steel water bowl. The water bowl is bigger because dogs need more water than food, which is great for keeping your pet hydrated. It also comes with a set of leg extensions which I used since my dog is so tall. This helps keep him from having to bend down to eat. Last but not least you get a set of non-skid rubber pads for the bottom of the feeder to keep it in place.

neater feeder
My dog Rocky was a little nervous about his new feeder. He was actually a bit reluctant to go near it for a few minutes. I called him and put a special treat in it (peanut butter) at first to get him to come over. He did come and check it out after a few minutes and has been fine with it ever since.

neater feeder 2
Here is Rocky getting a good drink of water. Notice the holes in the front of the feeder. That is where the water drips go. They are caught in the plastic holder beneath for easy cleaning. The Neater Feeder is truly one of those products that will leave you wondering how you ever lived without it for so long. I know that my life will never be the same again now that we own one.

Buy it: Do you have a dog or cat that is a messy eater? If so, you should try the Neater Feeder. It would make a great Christmas gift for your pet. You can get one in your choice of sizes online.

Win it: One of you will win a Neater Feeder in the size & color of your choice. (US residents only) Please enter through the Rafflecopter below. It may take 30 seconds or more to load.

Curtain & Bath Outlet 3 piece Curtain Set Review & Giveaway (Ends 10/26)

Screen Shot 2014-10-14 at 10.30.58 PM
I’m one of those people that likes my home to have that “put together” look, but I’m not always diligent in making it happen. For example, we have owned our home for about 4 years and yet, some of our windows are still kind of bare. Gasp!

I am sure you know that I am frugal and you also are probably aware that window treatments can get spendy. I think that combination of things has is the main reason for my lack of window treatments. Well, I think I have just found a good solution to that dilemma: Curtain & Bath Outlet. They offer a large assortment of window treatments, bedding, bath items and more at affordable prices. I am so glad for that.

Screen Shot 2014-10-14 at 10.16.29 PM
Curtain & Bath Outlet so kindly sent me their Boxwood Lined Woven 3 piece Curtain Set for this review.  It is available in three colors (brick marine & sand). I chose the sand color because it’s very neutral and the color would fit in with any of my rooms. I really liked that there was  a choice of sizes on this set. I chose the 63″ length because our windows are good sized.

curtains
My daughter really wanted me to put these up in her bedroom, so that’s what I did. Like I mentioned before, our windows are rather big and wide, so these don’t look quite like they do in the stock photo. There is an extra straight lined valance available on their site if I ever decide that I wanted to add it on to make it look more “scrunched” at the top, but I really don’t think it’s necessary. I think they are super cute in her room as is. As I was putting them up, I could tell that these curtains are durable and will last. They are machine washable too so I should be able to maintain them easily.

Buy it: Could you use some window treatments at budget prices? If so, head on over to the Curtain & Bath Outlet to shop. Exclusive Discount – Through 11/30/14, save 10% off your order with code sweetdeal10.

Win it: One of you will win $25 to spend at Curtain & Bath Outlet! Please enter through the Rafflecopter below. It may take 30 seconds or more to load.
