Qbedding Luxury Milk Protein Mulberry Silk Comforter

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Check out this gorgeous Milk Protein Mulberry Silk Comforter from Qbedding! It's a very lightweight comforter, perfect for spring and summer. Qbedding's range of luxury comforters includes Milk Protein Silk Comforters, Jacquard Weave Mulberry Silk Comforters, Soybean Fiber Comforters, and even hiqh quality Australia Wool Comforters, each developed and manufactured to the highest standards and perfect for skin sensitive customers. Their mission is to remain the most qualified expert in helping customers to create the finest bedding environment from sources throughout the world.
My beautiful comforter arrived in this gorgeous storage bag. I was immediately impressed with the softness and smoothness of the Milk Protein Mulberry Silk Comforter. The cover is made of Tencel, a new kind of natural human made fiber. Made from woods pulp, both the production process and the materials being used are non toxic and not harmful to the environment. Using Tencel as the cover material for this comforter further supplements the temperature regulating ability of mulberry silk for its breathable and absorbent characteristics.
Milk Protein Fiber is made with milk that goes through dehydration, deoiling, degreasing, separation, and purification to extract the protein out. With the aid of high technology, the extracted protein is then mixed with Polyacrylonitrile to become the pure liquid suitable for wet spinning. The spinning process will make the liquid become fiber-like material. After the process of solidifying, drawing, drying, curling, and shaping, the fiber is ready to be used. Milk protein fiber is different than natural fibers like cottons, nor is it similar to polyester. It is a new kind of animal fiber containing anti-bacterial elements and is environmental friendly. The high protein concentration makes milk protein fiber great humectant, keeping the skin smooth and moisture. The fiber itself has a similar texture as mulberry silk, very soft and comfortable.
Mulberry silk is considered the highest quality, most expensive silk. It is produced from domesticated silkworms that consume mulberry leaves to produce the silk. The result is a soft, light, and comfortable material that is also warm and durable. Mulberry silk also contains a natural protein called sericin and 18 other amino acids similar to those found in human skin. These natural proteins help soothe the nerves, nourish and rejuvenate the skin. This comforter is naturally hypo-allergenic, breathable, wrinkle-resistant, humidity absorbent for mold and mildew resistant, and bug repellent. It can also help regulate body temperature and improve quality of sleep. This kind of fabric is cool in summer and warm in winter. Qbedding works to ensure both environmental protection and customer health.
As you can see, we are truly enjoying our new Qbedding comforter! Visit www.qbedding.com for comforters, pillows, blankets, duvet covers, and even bead and string panel curtains. You can follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest too. Stay tuned for a fabulous Qbedding giveaway, starting tonight at midnight!

Giveaway! Hope and Miracles from Chicken Soup for the Soul - 3 Winners

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Do you ever hope for a miracle? I'm sure at one time or another, all of us have wished that God would wave his magic wand and fix all the bad things in our lives. Life is a struggle from day one, and it seems to get more challenging every day. With 7 billion people on this planet, I'm sure God has his hands full with all our prayers, from the smallest prayer of help to get through a school test to the largest prayer of healing a child with an incurable disease. I believe God is bigger than any problem we will face in this life, but when my prayers go unanswered (or answered in a way I don't like), it's heartening to read stories from others who have experienced divine intervention. Chicken Soup for the Soul has put together a new book called Hope and Miracles, and it's a collection of 101 amazing, inspirational stories of answered prayers and miracles.

While reading through these stories of miraculous healing, messages from God, unlikely reunions, and almost-unbelievable divine interventions, I recalled many events throughout my own life that I believe were a direct result of God placing his hands on me. My faith and hope is tested daily, but having experienced those events I know without a doubt that God is with me always, even when (and especially when) I don't deserve it. You are probably dealing with something in your life right now that you wish wasn't happening. I encourage you to read Hope and Miracles, because I know reading it will bless you too.

Unique Home Decor - Spiral Light Candle

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
It's still cold and dreary outside and I'm so ready for spring flowers! This is the time of year that I try to make some changes to my home decor to create an atmosphere of spring. I change my throw pillows to bright colors, prop up some fake flowers in a few vases, and add unique home decor items for an element of surprise. I discovered Spiral Light Candles just in time for my pre-spring makeover!
From the front, a Spiral Light Candle looks like any other candle, but take a look from another angle. The Spiral Light Candle burns in a spiral because the wick actually circles the diameter of the candle instead of just sticking up in the middle. As it burns, it fills the inner hole, surrounding a wood wick on the inside bottom, creating a solid pillar. Then I can light that wick and burn the candle even longer.
This Spiral Light Candle is the 3x3 size, but they also come in 4x4 and 4x6. The largest size will burn over 40 hours! My favorite scent is always vanilla and this one even has a hint of caramel in it. There are over two dozen scents available! Spiral Light self-filling candles are made right here in the USA, out of Hillsboro, ND. Check out this time-lapse video of one of these amazing candles burning:


I love the uniqueness of the Spiral Light Candle! Visit www.spirallightcandle.com to see their selection of colors and scents (or unscented) to bring some spring into your home. You can also follow them on Facebook and Twitter. These are a wonderful gift idea for Easter or Mother's Day!

4 Cities To Visit Inspired by the HP x360 #BendTheRules

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
I am so excited to be partnering with HP and Collectively! They are going on the road with Meghan Trainor to cover her tour across the nation, using the new HP x360 Convertible PC. Their camera crew is going to give us a behind-the-scenes look at Meghan's "That Bass Tour" including everything from hair and makeup to choreography. Plus, they're encouraging Viners, YouTubers, and Instagrammers to capture and share their own footage of the tour. They'll stitch it all together to create a fabulous tour documentary!
The 4 Modes of the HP x360 - Laptop, Stand, Tent, and Tablet - make this the most versatile piece of technology I've ever had in my hands. HP bends the rules with the x360 by giving us a 360-degree hinge that easily converts from one mode to another seamlessly.
The Laptop mode is my "work" mode, when I need a keyboard for typing emails, writing blog posts, editing photos, creating images, and much more. It's lightweight and compact, so I can easily take it to my recliner and work there.
The HP x360 Stand mode is my "entertainment" mode, when I want to binge-watch movies and catch up on tv shows I missed. I also found this is the perfect mode for referencing my recipes when I'm in the kitchen.
The Tent mode is my "play" mode for all my games. Whether I'm playing online or on downloaded games, the responsive touchscreen and perfectly angled HP x360 mode makes games much more fun. It's also the perfect mode for paging through my photos when I want to share where I've traveled.
The most amazing mode to me is the Tablet mode. The keyboard flips all the around and locks the keyboard so that I can use it in my "go" mode. My old laptop would break in half if I tried that! Whether I'm on the go for press trips, blogging conferences, or vacations, the tablet mode helps me pass the time surfing through my favorite sites with ease. I'm so glad HP is bending the rules because it will make my life so much easier!

4 Cities To Visit
I was so inspired by the 4 Modes of the HP x360, that I wanted to share 4 American cities I want to visit (and maybe even catch the Meghan Trainor "That Bass Tour" in one of them). Of course, I'll be taking along my x360 wherever I travel.
Key West, FL (to stand on the southernmost point in the US)
San Francisco, CA (to cross the Golden Gate Bridge)
Harbor Springs, MI (to hopefully see the Northern Lights)
Philadelphia, PA (to learn more about our great American history)

Now, I want to hear from YOU!
Which American cities would you most like to visit and why?
Which of the 4 Modes of the HP x360 would you use the most?
What is your favorite Meghan Trainor song? Are you going to the concert?

Be sure to follow along with the Meghan Trainor "That Bass Tour" by watching Behind The Scenes episodes and by following @HP for updates!

Luminara Candles from PeachSkinSheets

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Along with the super soft sheet set from PeachSkinSheets I received for review, was a lovely blue Luminara Candle. This flameless candle actually surprised me because it has a feature I've never seen before in a Luminara candle...the flame actually moves. It bounces around at the top of the candle just like a real flame!
Made with real wax, these flameless candles have a delightfully subtle scent. They operate on two D batteries for 500 hours of romantic ambiance (without being a fire hazard). The switch even has a timer option and you can also purchase a remote for it.
These Luminara Candles come in both 5" and 7" sizes and in a variety of colors and scents, so you can choose the one that fits best into your home decor. This one is going into the bathroom so I can take candlelight bubble baths!
Since there is really no way to show you how realistic these candles are in a photograph, I shot a quick video of my candle in action:


Isn't it incredible? Order your Luminara Candle at www.peachskinsheets.com and make sure to read my review of their sheet sets too! These candles are wonderful gifts and will add a touch of warmth to your home decor. I love mine and I know you will too!

Giveaway! PeachSkinSheets Super Soft 1500-TC Sheet Set

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
I swear to you, that is not a typo! These PeachSkinSheets are really 1500 thread count! I didn't even realize sheets with that high of a thread count even existed. What's the big deal about thread count? The higher the thread count, the better the sheets, the softer the sheets, the more luxurious and comfortable the sheets. I've been cheating myself out of glamourous, movie-star quality sleep all these years!
Besides being the softest bedsheets I've ever slept upon, PeachSkinSheets have tons of other benefits! They are 50% more breathable than most fabrics, including cotton. The SMART fabric even wicks away moisture (which is perfect for my night sweats). This amazing fabric has body temperature management properties, which means these sheets kept me sleeping comfortably cool all night long, while my husband (who always turns up the furnace before bed) slept comfortably warm. To quote my husband, "I love these! They are amazing!"
The fabric is super soft, peach skin soft, but one of the best benefits to PeachSkinSheets is that they are not slippery! In comparison to other sheets (even satin and bamboo), PeachSkinSheets are truly the most comfortable I've ever touched. PeachSkinSheets come in lots of colors, and I opted for white sheets, mostly because I was going to replace the older white sheet set in my guest room, but sorry future guests, these sheets are staying on our bed!
I don't iron. Ever. Thankfully, PeachSkinSheets are wrinkle-resistant and I made the bed with these sheets straight out of the dryer. Normally I wash sheets a couple times right out of the package to soften them up, but I'm not sure these sheets could even get any softer! There are SO many more benefits to PeachSkinSheets -- they are anti-microbial, hypoallergenic, durable, lightweight, stain-resistant, free of pesticides, and won't shrink over time. See even more benefits of PeachSkinSheets HERE! Want a swatch? Get one HERE. They always have at least 2 Colors of the Month priced at $50 for any size set, and the regular sale price is just $69.95 for any size set.
I am absolutely thrilled with PeachSkinSheets and highly recommend them! I am so excited I get to give away a set of sheets to one of my readers! The winner will be able to choose any size, any color of PeachSkinSheets. Enter below for your chance to win!

CleanPath Turns Cleaning Upside Down

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Did you know the majority of your household cleaners are mostly water? CleanPath has revolutionized household cleaners by concentrating the cleaning agents into a little pod, and you just add the water at home! Each pod contains enough for three full bottles of cleaner. This amazing collection includes multi-surface cleaner, glass cleaner, bathroom cleaner, hand soap, and hand sanitizer.
Think about the positive impact! You're carrying home lighter shopping bags. You're reducing waste in the environment. You're saving money by getting three bottles to the cost of one. Plus, CleanPath products are made with premium ingredients and their foaming hand soap is a part of the EPA's Design for the Environment program.
Each CleanPath product is specially designed so that the refill pod screws onto the bottom of the bottle. Just turn it upside down and gently squeeze the concentrate into the bottle so that it fills the inner measuring cup to the line. Then flip it over and fill it with water! CleanPath products keep my home just as clean as anything else I've ever used, but the added benefits of these products make them a better choice for my family.
Find out more about CleanPath at www.mycleanpath.com. CleanPath products are available exclusively at Walmart across the country. Starter bottles retail for $3.58 each, and refill pods for $2.28 each, making the per bottle cost under $1, since each refill pod makes 3 bottles of premium cleaner. CleanPath has my highest recommendation!
