Beautiful Art from #FulcrumGallery – Review and Giveaway

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

I have always wanted canvas art for our living room, more specifically, I wanted the art to have a giraffe in it.  I have a slight obsession with giraffes that stems from being made fun of in school for being so tall.

When I was given the chance to review a piece of art from FulcrumGallery.com  it didn’t take me long to pick out what I wanted. I immediately fell in love with the Ann Brodhead Safari Giraffe. 1x1.trans Beautiful Art from #FulcrumGallery    Review and Giveaway

1x1.trans Makeover Any Room in 2014 with GE reveal (#Sponsored)Disclosure: The information and pictures in this post have been provided by GE.  I will be receiving some GE Reveal light bulbs, for free, to makeover a room in our home and to write a post about it.

We all know the holidays and New Years are the perfect time to consider a makeover. Did you know the quickest and easiest way to makeover your home for the holidays is with good lighting? With GE reveal® light bulbs, you can switch on the true beauty of life’s spaces and the people within them.

In 2014 I will be making over our man cave with new lighting courtesy of GE! I shouldn’t really call it the man cave, since my computer is in there too! Right now the lights are very yellow, and make the room seem sort of gloomy.  Since my computer is down there, that is where I take a lot of pictures for reviews, but I always have to edit them to take the yellow hue out.  My photos will come out so much nicer with whiter lighting!

Below are some photos of before and after shots: Continue reading

Ever Need a Urine Sample from your Cat? (Kit4Cat Review + video)

How many of you have ever had to get a urine sample from your cat?  It really is no easy task. About 2 months ago, I noticed Oliver was acting different.  He was still playing but not as much and the clumps of urine were getting smaller in his litter box. It is hard to tell which cat did what in the litter boxes because we have 3, and they all sort of share, but that mothers intuition was kicking in.  I just knew something was wrong.

I stayed up all night with Oliver in the basement trying all kinds of fake litter to try to get a urine sample.  First I tried the plastic beads the vet gave me.  There were so few beads, even in the smallest box we had Oliver didn’t think there was any litter in there so he wouldn’t go.

Then I read online that you can used rinsed safflower seeds because their shells are hard and do not absorb liquids.  I happened to have a big bag on hand and tried that. Oliver sniffed it, and walked away.
