Giveaway! Lugz Women's Winter Boots

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
It is certainly getting cold here in Kansas! Are you ready for the cold, wet, snowy weather that's coming this winter? If my feet are cold, then I'm cold all over. These brand new Lugz Women's Tambora WR boots are everything I dreamed they would be, and more! They are super cute, toasty warm, and incredibly comfortable.
They provide me with incredible warmth with a super-soft plush faux fur lining. These Lugz boots are also water-resistant, keeping the moisture away from my skin, even in the cold rain and snow. The insole is luxuriously cushioned and they are roomy enough for me to wear even my thickest winter socks. The durable, reinforced rubber heel and toe give me excellent traction.
The snowy white color with the tan faux fur is such a great look. Lugz does offer the Tambora style in other colors, but the ones I chose are a completely unique style! Plus, since they are lace-up boots, I can even tuck my pant legs into the boots. I absolutely, positively love these boots! They are the perfect addition to any winter wardrobe!
Lugz offers great boots for the entire family! Check out their collections for men, women, and kids at www.lugz.com

Nature Anywhere Birds-I-View Feeder #review - Holiday Gift Idea

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
The Birds-I-View Window Bird Feeder from Nature Anywhere is a window bird feeder. It sticks to the outside of a window with super strong suction cups. This bird feeder is made of high quality, anti-UV premium acrylic that will stay clear and beautiful for years. It's ready to use, right out of the box!
The Birds-I-View Feeder features a big cut-out viewing window that allows you an unobstructed view of all the birds that come right up to the window to eat. It's a great holiday gift idea for any age! Kids will love seeing birds up close, grandparents will love the entertainment, and I'm loving seeing the different kinds of birds in the window while I'm working on my computer.
This bird feeder will even entertain your cats while you're away. I love the design, with its rounded perch bar and slide-out double food tray. You can use two different kinds of feed to attract different kinds of birds. I haven't had any trouble with squirrels either, since they can't get to the feeder on the window.
I bought a small bag of wild bird feed at my local hardware store for just $3 and filled up the food compartments, with plenty of bird food leftover so I can refill my Birds-I-View Feeder whenever it gets low. I am really enjoying watching the birds come up to eat!
When hanging your Birds-I-View Feeder, be sure to wipe the window clean first so the suction cups stick well. I also used the same window cleaner cloth to wipe the inside of each suction cup before pressing it to the window. The suction cups work great and the feeder hasn't moved a bit. It is perfect for those who live in rental properties, like me, because I don't own the yard or trees, but I can decorate with a bird feeder on the window.
The photo below is my view from the inside of our computer room. I keep trying to catch a picture of a bird in the feeder, but when the birds see me lifting up my camera they get skittish and fly away. Initially, it can take a while before the birds find the feeder, but once they do, they'll come back again and again. I'm absolutely thrilled with my Birds-I-View Feeder!
to order the Birds-I-View Feeder
for the holidays or for a gift anytime! 

UPDATE 3/21/17
This bird feeder has hung in the window all winter, through wind and snow, and for the past couple of weeks, I've had this cardinal visit every single day to eat and sing to me!


BuiltNY City Tote #review - Holiday Gift Idea

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Here is a fabulous holiday gift idea! Give her a City Tote from BuiltNY that combines fun and fashion with functionality. It comes in five different fun patterns, plus a basic black color. It's made from neoprene (the wetsuit material) so it's perfect for wet or snowy weather.
This City Tote even has a interior pocket for your phone or keys. It has a snap button closure and features two high quality faux leather 10.5" straps. It measures 12.6" x 4.7" x 24.6" and holds lots of stuff, but folds flat for storage. It's also lightweight but very sturdy.
It's perfect for shopping, makes a great purse, and is a great travel carry-on. Or, take it with you, folded flat in your suitcase, while you're traveling so you can fill it up with souvenirs to bring home. It's also a great option for taking to the gym or toss snack bags and toys in it for a road trip.
I've owned several BuiltNY products over the years and they are very durable. I always get compliments on the styles and prints, too. I love my new City Tote! BuiltNY also sells fabulous lunch totes, wine and beer totes, clutches, backpacks and more, all made from Neoprene insulated material.

Tip for Avoiding Holiday Travel Stress

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Whether it’s driving to grandma’s house, flying home, or taking the train out of the city, holiday travel is never fun - especially when you have hungry kids with you. To avoid meltdowns you may find yourself buying that overpriced airport sandwich or stopping at the next fast food restaurant you see, but it doesn’t have to be that way this year.
The Charcuterie Shack, a purveyor of charcuterie, tapas, and cured meats, has a collection of perfectly travel-sized snacks that are sure to stop even the worst case of "hangry." The Espuña Tapas Essentials line of chorizo, sopressata, and salami bites and sticks are all natural, antibiotic free, protein-packed, and shelf stable making them the perfect holiday-travel snack solution. They are also filled with authentic Spanish flavors and are made from family recipes dating back 70 years.
Whether you're inclined to grab the sticks or the bites, each package contains 3oz of delicious meat. I found that a package is plenty of snack for two adults, so you could easily split up one package for several hungry kids. My favorite flavor is the Hot Sopresatta; and if you're looking for less spicy for younger kids, I'd go for the Chorizo.
Espuna Tapas Essentials are excellent quality, easy to transport, simple to share, and a fabulous way to fight off hunger during holiday travel. Be sure to tuck some into your handbag in case you get caught in holiday traffic while you're gift shopping too!
You can grab The Charcuterie Shack Espuña Tapas Essentials at the following retailers:
NE: Fairway Markets, Westside Markets, Food Bazaar, King Kullen, selected Shoprite stores, selected Stop and Shop stores, independents and coops, Eataly, Zabars, Agata and Valentina.
TX: Central Markets
SE: Harris Teeter, Sedanos, Presidente, Tropical Supermarkets, Bravo´s
Other: Cost Plus World Markets

It's a great holiday gift idea for anyone who loves to entertain. Get one for your hard-to-buy-for relative and the office gift exchange.
The Cheese Log Board and Knife Set is a great hostess gift, too! Set it out at your holiday party with a selection of different types of sliced cheese and some thin slices of pepperoni and summer sausages. It measures 8.75" in diameter, perfect for any table!
