Purex Crystals Review and Giveaway

This time I actually have a dilemma. I am trying to get ready for my family to come and visit for my twins one year birthday party. I haven't had this many people staying in my home for a long time. So in order to get ready I need to make sure theres 2 possibly 3 extra beds made with linens clean and ready to go. So I decided to start getting the laundry ready and folded now. But I thought maybe I should wait until RIGHT before they come down. Well, with this new product from Purex, I don't have to worry about that. They can smell fresh for the next few weeks by just using Purex Crystals.

Purex Crystals are 87% natural crystals that you put in at the start of the wash, so they spend more time with your laundry infusing them with long-lasting freshness.

Easy Canvas Prints

Some of my new fans may not know that I'm a new mom of twins. When I was given the opportunity to review a canvas from Easy Canvas Prints I was very excited to choose a photo from my vast baby photos to print onto a canvas from Easy Canvas Prints. The problem came when it was time to choose! When I finally decided on a photo I went to order and was delighted at the options available for me to choose from. I finally selected a photo of me holding my twins feet. 


After you have selected your photo, you upload it onto the site. Then come the details:


Select Canvas Wrap Thickness

Standard Wrap, Gallery Wrap, and Framed.

Select the Border Option

You can even choose what color you want the Border to be.

Optional Color Finishing

None, Black & White or Sepia.

There is also an option for Image Retouching

The retouching can come in handy, we had to do this when the only photograph of a family member had to be retouched due to loss of half of the photo to damage. Now you can't even tell and we can still have a nice photo to look at.

So after all of that I chose the Standard Wrap, Image Wrap and My photo was Black and White already so we were ready to go. I placed my order and then counted the days until it arrived. The shipping was fast, came with tracking and arrived well packaged.  As soon as I opened it I could tell it was a quality product. This isn't something you get at the local flea market, this is a quality canvas print.


This photo looks a little purple but thats just the lighting in my house. It is actually black/white just like the photgraph above. 

Right now their website shows Buy One Canvas Get One FREE. I'm not sure how long this will last but I'd hurry and get it now while you can! You might even qualify for FREE SHIPPING.
 Offer ends 1/26.

Let me know what you would turn into a Canvas!

Solid Cordz

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I knew these Solid Cordz were on the way to my house and I wasn't really convinced about how useful they would be. It seemed like a fantastic idea though, the shipping was very fast. I got them and they sat there for about 24 hours till I had a "Tech Emergency". My ipad wasn't charging, and it seemed that all the charging docks and cords weren't working. I also have particularly handy 9 month old twins who seem to be obsessed with any device or cord that holds or channels electricity. I usually charged my devices by my bedside, but since the girls are often on the bed, this was not a situation that was going to work out. The other charge spot was filled with other cords and things that filled up the charging strip. I could unplug something and plug in my charger but IT WOULDN'T FIT!! Oh great now what do I do?


 I grabbed the package and ripped it open. I plugged it in and then my charger to the Solid Cordz and voila, my ipad charger fit just fine. Of course I could have probably taken the time to completely rewire my whole bedroom, but time is so precious in my household and this little cord saved me a ton of time. There wasn't a guarantee that there would be a slot even if I did reorganize the bedroom. I was back to charging my device in no time. The Cordz are one foot in length. The Cordz come with a heavy duty molded ends. I know we have all used a cheap extension cord thats fraying and is covered in a cheap plastic. These cordz are very top quality materials.  This would also work great for any computer room with several devices. If you are like me I have a computer, monitor, stereo, printer, a small heater for when its cold... the list goes on and on. They all have that big lunky ac/dc convertor attached to their charging cords. This eliminates using more charging strips and unnecessary and space consuming extension cords.

Convenient & money saving 5-pack
12-inch length to provide a clean, organized look
Equipped with a 16AWG wire gauge
Underwriters Laboratories (UL) listed
CSA Approved for top quality
Heavy-duty molded ends

Liberates the power strip
A staple for any Technophile
Perfect for the office and home
Get the full use of your power strips and outlets with our high-quality liberating extension cords
Just plug those big bulky power adapters into our cables and plug the cables into those previously unusable outlets
Replace multiple power strips with one unit by utilizing slots!!!

Ozeri Touch II Professional Digital Kitchen Scale with Microban® Antimicrobial Product Protection

When the Ozeri Touch II Professional Digital Kitchen Scale with  Microban® Antimicrobial Product Protection arrived on my doorstep I was admittedly a little jazzed. I've never owned a kitchen scale. After being diagnosed as having gestational diabetes when I was pregnant with the girls I really started looking at what I was eating a little closer. I never thought that owning a kitchen scale would help with your food portions or how much you eat, but the clever thing about it is that it does.  Portion control for your diet is very important when controlling your glucose levels. By using a kitchen scale, it helps you prepare food with an exact amount of ingredients so that you might be less likely to over portion your meals. 

Super Slim in Design

The scale itself is actually very modern looking. The scale is white and has a nice large Blue Backlit LCD screen. One of the greatest features of this scale is that its the industry's first kitchen scale to include antimicrobial protection that disrupts the growth of bacteria. These bacteria can cause stains, odors and product deterioration. Infused Microban® works for the lifetime of the scale and helps maintain surface cleanliness. If you are cooking with meats this is VERY important.  On an unprotected scale bacteria can double every 20 minutes. The Microban® is built into the scale and will never wash off.  It is a very thin scale that doesn't take up a lot of counter space.

Some key features: 

  • Industry exclusive scale features Microban® antimicrobial product protection that helps prevent the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria.
  • Boasts 2 advanced touch sensitive buttons, 4 high precision GFX sensors, and a large Blue Backlit LCD screen with a capacity range of 0.1 oz to 11.2 lb or 1 g to 5100 g.
  • Award-winning thin design is infused with Microban® antimicrobial technology to provide an added level of protection that won't ever wear away.
  • Precision tare feature automatically subtracts the weight of the container providing the net weight of the ingredients; easy unit button instantly converts between lb/oz, kg/g, fl.oz., ml.
  • Includes 2 Lithium Batteries and an Easy Access Battery Compartment (no screwdriver needed).
I did test the scale out and found it to be accurate. I was again overall impressed with the slim design, blue backlit LCD screen , and the Microban® protection.
