While I am not really what you could consider a very technical person, I do get really excited when it comes to new technology in TV’s. What can I say? I am a sucker for a large, screen with bright colors and lights flashing out of it. It’s amazing to see how every year the TV’s get larger, yet thinner and more sleek looking with the picture being somehow more vibrant. We’ve come a long way since I was a small kid with the big console TV and NO remote, that’s for sure. Anyone else remember those?

When it comes to gift giving, I really love to visit Best Buy to find the newest and greatest gifts. They always have something that my family gets excited over. If you have the chance to visit the store this season, be sure to head over to the TV section and have a look at the new LG OLED TV.

You might be wondering “What is OLED TV?”. I can sum it up with one word, Awesome! The stunning design of LG OLED TV is only 0.21″ thick at its thinnest point. Picture quality is spectacular, with Infinite Contrast that ranges from the most blazing whites to the deepest blacks. And, LG’s exclusive 4 Color Pixel technology delivers bright, vibrant colors. With deeper and richer colors, stunning contrast and ingeniously curved screens, it is unlike any technology you’ve ever seen, and it delivers a picture that exceeds your wildest imagination. You can also find content faster with webOS.

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.

Rejuvenator Microbubble Shower Head Review

Rejuvenator
Who doesn’t want to have a spa-like experience in the comfort of their own home? I know I sure do. We live in a time and age where getting a bit of luxury is just as easy as having some money saved up and clicking a button on your mouse and just like that, you can have something awesome delivered to your door. I’d say the time we live in is pretty amazing. Wouldn’t you?

When I think of a spa experience, I automatically think of a hot tub or a massage or a facial, etc. There is no one way to describe it. I do think a good hot shower is as close as we can get to a daily spa experience, that’s why I feel that a great shower head is so important in achieving a spa-like experience. A good shower head will leave you feeling cleaner, softer and refreshed. The Rejuvenator Microbubble Shower Head fits the bill as the good shower head I just described. It offers Patented Microbubble technology that cleans deep within your pores.

Check out this informational video below to get a visual of how the Rejuvenator works.

I was recently sent the Rejuvenator so I could try it out for myself. Not only is it super relaxing to use, but I noticed immediately after the first use my skin felt overall softer. It wasn’t drying out my skin at all. Just before installing the shower head, I was dealing with a breakout on my face and after I began using the Rejuvenator, I noticed that the breakout started going away. That made me really happy!

Screen Shot 2014-10-27 at 1.00.55 PM
On to the more technical side of things, the Rejuvenator has self cleaning jets with a full coverage spray. It’s also very easy to install with no tool required. I did most of the installation on my own, but had my husband come in to help me get it tightened up properly. It included a diverter with matching metallic coating for dual shower head installation, which is nice because you can switch back and forth if you want to use your original nozzle sometimes.

The Rejuvenator is on a hose and easily detaches so you can move it around as needed. This is perfect for washing the kids hair in the bath.

Buy it: I am really happy with the Rejuvenator and would recommend it to anyone in the market for a new shower head. You can get a Rejuvenator online.

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.

Fight Off Acne Naturally with Burt’s Bees Herbal Blemish Stick

Burt's Bees Herbal Blemish Stick
Disclosure: This is a sponsored post for Burt’s Bees in collaboration with Datarank & Walmart. All opinions stated are my own.

If there’s one thing that’s worse than teenage acne, it’s adult acne. Ok, well maybe it’s not worse, but I could sure live without it. Let me not exaggerate; I don’t get full on breakouts like I used to, but I do get the painful BIG red bump that usually decides to emerge at the worst possible times and it seems to take forever to heal. Do you ever get those? Tell me I’m not the only one. Having said that, I am older (and wiser) than I was as a teenager and I have learned a few things when it comes to dealing with acne. It’s really pretty simple. I like to treat it as naturally as possible. I do use store bought products, but I specifically like to use Burt’s Bees which contains natural ingredients. By the way, did you know it’s their 30th anniversary?

burts bees walmart
While I don’t have frequent acne, I know it’s inevitable and I like to be prepared, so I headed over to Walmart to pick up a Burt’s Bees Herbal Blemish Stick. Check out the HUGE assortment of Burt’s Bees products that are available. I could only capture some of the products with the camera on my phone. There were more. I could seriously stand there just looking at everything for a good 30 minutes. I may or may not have actually done that on the day I took this photo. burts bees 2
I really like this product. It comes in a pretty little glass bottle with all the natural ingredients listed right on there. Lets see, there’s SD Alcohol (from yellow corn), calendula flower oil, borage seed oil, yarrow oil, parsley seed extract, willow bark extract, lemon oil, tea tree oil as well as a few other oils. This is really easy to apply as it has a little roll on applicator. Simply apply as needed. It smells very natural as the tea tree oils and other ingredients are fragrant, but the smell is not overwhelming. I can actually feel this product working which I can’t say about some of the other less natural products I have tried.

Buy it: If you are in need of ANY natural beauty products, be sure to head over to your local Walmart to check out their selection of Burt’s Bees products.

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.
