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.

Then I tried packing peanuts, cut up plastic drinking straws and clear plastic wrap over his regular litter, each in their own litter box. He refused all 3. Continue reading

Fathers Day Idea – The Shave Well Fog Free Shower Mirror Giveaway!

With Father’s Day fast approaching,I would love to tell you about a product the dad’s in your life will love to receive as a gift this Father’s Day… 

The Shave Well Fog Free Shower Mirror 

A close, comfortable shave requires a lot of moisture. What better place to get wet than in the shower!  Simply by its unique design, The Shave Well Company TRULY FOG FREE mirror will change the way you feel about shaving in the shower.

Did you know… 
  • A dry human hair takes about as much force to cut as a copper wire of identical diameter.
  • After three minutes in the shower, the tensile strength of your beard is reduced by nearly seventy percent!

Warm it up!
To get that truly fog-free reflection with your Shave Well mirror, hold it under the shower stream for a few seconds to “warm it up” right before you shave.  The Shave Well Company shower mirror is fog free simply by design!  In the few seconds you hold it under the shower spray the temperature of the moist air and the mirror equalize to create a long lasting, truly fog free image for the duration of your shower.  No more temperature difference – no more fog.  

Shaving in the shower is the most comfortable place for a man to shave. The moisture and steam greatly soften Dad’s beard and make it much easier to cut, resulting in a closer more comfortable shave. When you get out of the shower and towel dry, your face quickly loses the benefit of all the moisture from the hot steamy shower. Once your beard begins to dry, you can be literally tugging on each and every hair on your face instead of neatly slicing it at the skin’s surface and moving on without irritating your skin.
 

What is fog and why does it happen?
Fog is simply condensation.  Shower water is much warmer than the air temperature of most homes.  Your warm shower heats the air and it becomes saturated.  This warm moist air becomes fog or condensation which collects on all cooler surfaces – like mirrors.

The Shave Well Company fog free shower mirror measures 6″ tall, 4″ wide and is 1/8″ thick. Many users choose to hold the mirror while shaving. The mirror fits well in a users hand and provides a complete reflection of the entire face while shaving.  The base of the adhesive hook (the part that sticks to the wall) is 1″ x 1 1/2″.

Shaving in the shower also means less mess around the sink for you-know-who to clean up!

Tony and I recently received a  Shave Well Fog Free Shower Mirror  to try out and we love it! Just a few seconds of holding it in the stream of water really does keep it fog free the whole time you are in the shower.  I even used it to make sure I got all the hair dye off my ears and forehead when I was rinsing the hair dye off!  I have also heard that women love using this mirror to exfoliate their faces while in the shower!
