Great Case for Galaxy S5

I just upgraded to the Samsung Galaxy S5 and knew I would need a cover. I looked into a case that was so heavy and bulky and then I found this one. While it has a heavy duty soft silicone case to protect against damage if dropped, it’s the rhinestone bling cover that snaps over the rubber protector that makes people do a double take on this case. The buttons on the side of the phone are still easily accessible as is the camera on the back. But that’s not all, it also comes with a screen protector that is easy to apply to protect the face from scratches. I love pink and with the rhinestones, it really sets the case off. If you are looking for a great case for a great price, I highly recommend you checking this one out.

Awesome Scented Candle With Surprise Jewelry

20141226_155739_resizedI have had many scented candles but none have had such a beautiful fragrance as the one I received from Amour Scents. I choose Evergreen Citrus because I love the smell of evergreens. With the mix of citrus it was a wonderful sweet smell. The aroma started as soon as I lite the candle and was carried through out the house. I love it! But that’s not all, I also received a beautiful pendant!

I started burning my candle at 12:30 PM and by 4:00 PM I could see the foil package. After another thirty minutes, I carefully pulled the foil package out from the candle and let it cool for a few minutes.

I was so surprised when I saw the beautiful blue stone surrounded by smaller crystal stones. I have had other candles with jewels in them but this is by far the best.


When looking at a picture, it’s hard to tell the size so I put the pendant on a penny so you can compare the size.


The candles come in a variety of scents and I can’t wait to try one of the other ones!

If you are looking for a truly wonderful scented candle plus a beautiful surprise jewel, I highly recommend

Collapsible Strainer


Oh my gosh, was I surprised when I saw how great this strainer was! It is lightweight but holds so much. The silicone is soft but heavy duty. It’s two strainers in one, for small items needing strained, I just popped out the center and when I strained a full pot of macaroni, I popped out the entire inside. The large handle makes it easy to hold and it’s very sturdy. This is not just a strainer, but it is also a steamer! I love steamed vegetables but I don’t like steaming them in metal. With the silicone, there is no metal taste. The strainer is easy to clean and when ready to store, it collapses flat! No space need for bulky items, just hang it in the cupboard for your next meal. I am so impressed with the quality, the sturdiness and the way it takes hardly any space to store. I have added a picture of this product showing how it collapses for storage. I highly recommend this strainer for all your cooking needs.

Fresh Wine Every Time

wine2With this vacuum wine pump, there is no worry about your wine getting stale. This vacuum pump makes it so easy, just add the rubber seal and pump until resistance is felt which removes the air and it preserves the taste of the wine. I also like how much easier it is to use the rubber seal after opening instead of the original cork. This is also great on the less expensive wines that don’t have a cork. With the rubber seal, it keeps the wine much fresher than the metal screw top. If you want to have a delicious glass of wine every time you pour from an already opened bottle, I highly recommend this pump.

IPhone Case With Interchangeable Backs

This is such a great Iphone case. It not only has a heavy duty rubber like backing but it also comes with three interchangeable covers in black, white and pink. Coordinate your phone case to your attire! Click on my link to see the other great things about this case and pictures.

Mesh Christmas Stocking


I’m so impressed with the quality of the stocking. The mesh is heavy duty and all the edges are stitched and over-locked so there is not any raveling of the seams. The heavy duty grommet is great for hanging. I usually order a fruit basket for my mother-in-law for Christmas but this year I plan to make my own and use the stocking!



Great Pet Shampoo and Conditioner



I have tried many dog shampoos but none have worked as great as this one. It’s both a shampoo and conditioner plus it’s 100% natural. Our toy poodle has very sensitive skin and after shampooing him, I can easily comb him out with no tangles. The below link will give you more information and pictures of my pup after his bath and another after brushing him. Great product!
