Latest Bedding - Refresh Your Bedroom Retreat

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
It has taken us two full months to completely renovate our master bedroom. Our little farmhouse has rather small rooms, so it's important to us to make sure each room is beautiful, welcoming, and cozy. I was offered an opportunity to review new bedding from LatestBedding.com and selected the Amrapur Velvet Frame Grey 100% Cotton Quilt Set. No farmhouse is complete without quilts!
This bed in a bag set includes a queen size quilt coverlet and two matching standard pillow shams. The set is 100% cotton with a velvet frame around the edges. The cotton and velvet are soft, yet durable, and it feels so cozy to the touch. The quilt is a medium weight quilt, perfect for year round sleeping. I love the way light bounces off the quilt!
The quilt features box-quilting across both the cotton and the velvet. The two pillow shams are also edged with velvet. It's a perfect blend of farmhouse simplicity and city glamour. Since we always use a coverlet quilt as our blanket while we sleep, I'm so very happy this set is machine washable. I love having the soft velvet edge of the quilt pulled up to my chin at night.
This gorgeous quilt set is available in this cozy grey, a delicious teal, a warm merlot, or a bright ivory flax. We tend to lean more towards grays and whites in our farmhouse, and then I love to add pops of bright colors with throw pillows and vases of flowers. This neutral grey will allow me to change out just a couple of accessories with each season to freshen up the room every few months.
Sleeping under this quilt is simply dreamy. It's soft and warm, without being too heavy. It allows for just enough air flow that I'm not sweating at night. We are absolutely delighted with our quilt set from LatestBedding.com! Their customer service is top notch and shipping is super fast and free in the US.

Mix-A-Mutt Children's Interactive Book #giftidea

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review. Post contains affiliate link.
A book is always a perfect gift. You're giving the gift of reading, of discovering, of learning, and of exploring new ideas. You're giving fun, laughter, and creativity. You're developing hearts and minds with the books you give. Mix-A-Mutt by Sara Ball is a delightful, interactive children's book for kids aged 2-8 years old, and they are going to love it!
Mix-A-Mutt is a beautiful hardbound book with thick cardstock pages. Each page is cut into three sections and features a different dog breed, ten breeds in all. Dogs are the most popular pets and one of the first animals a young child recognizes. Mix-A-Mutt allows the child to mix up breeds and create new ones with the turn of a page (or a page section), for bunches of combinations!
Along with each breed, Mix-A-Mutt offers facts about the breed, like the size, average weight, history of the breed, along with fun facts, like spots on a Dalmatian don't come in until they are about four weeks old. You could even make a game of it, trying to combine the three breeds into one new dog breed name - how about a YorkKomPei? I give Mix-A-Mutt five stars! Or should that be five doggie treats?

Whiskware Stack and Snack Containers

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Whiskware has reinvented snack containers and I'm so excited to share them with you. These snack containers feature three separate containers that all twist and lock together. Each of the three containers has its own lid so you can use one, two, or all three at once, plus one of the lids features a removable handle so it can be easily carried anywhere.
Whiskware offers two different sizes of snack containers - midsize containers and mini containers - and you can choose from white lids or teal lids. Each stack and snack container set costs just $9.99, making it the perfect stocking stuffer for kids and adults. You can even fill them with holiday goodies before gifting them.
Whiskware containers are fun to fill for the holidays and they can enjoy the fillings and re-use them all year long. Fill one for your office Christmas party with paper clips, binder clips, and a scratch-off lottery ticket. Fill one for your child's teacher with pencil erasers, hard candies, and a special note from your child.
The midsize containers are really large enough to hold an entire lunch. I filled mine with raisins, sliced Roma tomatoes, and cheese sticks and crackers. I was surprised at how much they hold since they are compact in size. This stack of Whiskware containers fit easily into my purse for work and would fit in any diaper bag, briefcase, or backpack.
The Whiskware mini containers are a bit smaller but can still hold quite a bit of food, more than I could eat as a snack in one sitting. These containers are perfect for road trips, when snacking on the go can get expensive buying at pit stops. Give each kid their own "snack stack" filled with healthy fruits, veggies, grains, and proteins.  Bonus - they are dishwasher safe!
What else fits in a Whiskware snack container?
  • hard boiled egg (whole or sliced)
  • dry cereal
  • granola
  • trail mix
  • nuts and seeds
  • carrot sticks celery sticks
  • berries of all kinds
  • sliced apples, pears, or peaches
  • grapes and grape tomatoes
  • snack crackers
  • cookies
  • yogurt (yes, wet foods too)

Pass The Pup Game from PlayMonster

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
You may remember the childhood game of hot potato - the music stops and you're out. Pass The Pup is a game that is similar to hot potato, but much more fun and much more inclusive. This adorable pup features built-in music that a player activates by squeezing the pup's paw. Once the music begins, pass the pup around the circle until the music stops.
When the music stops, the player holding the pup pulls one card from the secret pocket in the back of the pup and does whatever the card tells them to do - bark, wag, scratch, dig, roll over, shake, and other fun ways to pretend to be a dog. No one has to be "the loser" and the music can start again for another round.
Pass The Pup is a great way to start playing games with your youngster. The pup comes with the cards, as well as instructions, but you can set whatever rules you want at the beginning of the game. You can even have all the players do what is on the card to make it more inclusive. It's a great family game, and would also be a fabulous activity for a daycare classroom (age 3 and up) or a kindergarten classroom.
PlayMonster is one of my favorite toy distributors! They feature amazing toys and games that help children to learn while they play. Pass The Pup helps your child develop skills like: taking turns, following directions, beginning reading (with pictures and simple words), hand-eye coordination, and social skills. Best of all, everyone will have howling good time!

November Gramma in a Box - Fall and Thanksgiving Sweet Projects

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Gramma in a Box is ready for the sweet tastes of fall and Thanksgiving! This month, create three deliciously fun food projects with your kids or grandkids. Gramma in a Box comes with all the supplies you need to create Acorn Kisses, Pretzel Turkeys, and Fall Cookies.
Whether your grandchildren live nearby or far away, Gramma in a Box is a wonderful way to remind them how much you love them. Each month a new box arrives, filled with sweet treats that you and the kids get to make together. Everything is already premeasured, presorted, and even the cookies come prebaked.
We made these Acorn Kisses from melted chocolate, Hershey Kisses, chocolate chips, and mini vanilla wafers. You will need a bowl in which to melt the chocolate in your microwave and a spoon to stir it, but everything else comes in the box ready to create. Each project comes with step by step instructions, but feel free to get creative!
I love these Pretzel Turkeys! They are so cute and whimsical. Gramma in a Box is a wonderful gift idea for grandchildren who live too far to visit often. Each month they will think of you when the box arrives and they can spend time with their parents creating these delightful sweet treats. What a great way to let children express their creativity.
The Fall Cookies project comes with three different shapes of cookies - turkeys, leaves, and acorns. We used some of the leftover melted chocolate for the cookies, but there is plenty of frosting and sprinkles to go around. Everything in the box is fresh when it arrives and always tastes delicious. The hardest part is not eating them before pictures have been taken.
Children love to cook and bake, but it often includes a huge mess that mom ends up cleaning up. With Gramma in a Box, there's no baking required and cleanup involves nothing more than licking frosting off fingers and tossing the wrappers in the trash. We LOVE Gramma in a Box!

CocoRoo Organic Coconut Moisturizing Lotions

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Coconut oil is nature's finest moisturizer and I'm loving how CocoRoo organic coconut moisturizing lotions spoil my skin! CocoRoo uses only organic cold-pressed coconut oil to preserve the nutrients and antioxidants that help keep your skin looking healthy and vibrant. They also add cold-pressed macadamia nut oil to help further soothe and moisturize, allowing you to maintain your natural glow. The Naturally Naked lotion is unscented, perfect for families that have sensitivity to aromas, and the Mint Condition lotion is infused with menthol and peppermint oil for those days when you need some extra pep in your step.

I love these lotions so much! If you've ever used coconut oil, you know that it can harden slightly, so I leave these lotions in my shower so the heat of the hot water will soften them up. Having them in the shower also reminds me to put lotion on after every shower, so I don't end up with itchy, dry, alligator skin over the winter months. CocoRoo lotions are USDA Certified Organic and contain absolutely nothing but organic extra virgin cold-pressed coconut oil, cold-pressed macadamia nut oil, and in the case of the mint lotion, organic peppermint oil and natural menthol. CocoRoo is the perfect holiday gift!

Dress Your Vases with VACE

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review. Post contains affiliate link.
Dress up all your vases with VACE, the brand new face of flowers! VACE is the stretch-on cover that conforms to virtually any vase. I love this simple, effective way to create fresh new home decor looks that are rich in color, texture, and style.
VACE seamlessly blends the world of fashion and flowers, ushering in a new era of creativity and versatility for all your centerpieces and floral arrangements. Dig all those old vases out from your closets and your cabinets, and let VACE turn them into mantle-worthy showpieces!
I received a three pack of VACE covers, in the colors of wine, black, and a soft sage green. Using VACE, I can change the look of this vase of flowers by simply stretching the cover over the vase. It is so easy to do and changing the color of the vase makes a huge impact!
VACE is the perfect new look for florists, event planners, and decorators. I love how VACE covers unseemly stems and cloudy water. VACE is flexible, reusable, and washable. It feels kind of like a thick, nylon sock. It comes in different sizes and colors so you can choose your look!
Since I generally use artificial flowers, I'm excited to give my boring glass vases a new look. VACE adds a fabulous pop of color to my white farmhouse walls. As an added bonus, I discovered VACE also helps to push the stems more towards the center of the vase, making them look perkier.
VACE is the perfect way to give your tired holiday decor a glamorous new look without spending a lot of money. Get VACE in solid colors, variety packs, sassy nets, and even textured covers. You're going to love how easy it is to change your decor instantly!
