Weather To Wear App #Review #WeatherToWear




Today I was given a chance to review an iPhone App. It's called Weather To Wear! I love that this app shows you when it is too windy outside to dear a skirt or a dress! Another plus is that it shows a 5 day wind forecast. All you need to do is enter your location into the GPS and it will give you the results!

We have family all over the US and when it comes time for vacations and get-a-ways, I can only see the temperature and not the wind forecast. I love that when we travel to Texas or Florida, I can pull up the wind forecast and I can plan accordingly. No more surprise wind gusts catching me off guard!!

You can download this app  here -----> Weather To Wear

THE GIANT and THE DWARF by Dov Yanai #BookReview




Book Description:

The Giant and the Dwarf is a captivating tale for adults about the journey to, and the burden of, self-empowerment. The plot,moving, catching and heart gripping, shifts between reality and the fairy world, gaining insight from both.

The story and its direct and innocent style crosses the boundaries of personal inner space, allowing every reader to look at the Giant and Dwarf within them, along with their strengths and weaknesses, through the eyes of both a child and an adult alike.

The book 'refuses' to move in a set path of any one genre and walks a fine line between a sweet-fluffy children's tale and a painfully biographical spiritual guide.

This fuzziness enables the reader to devote themselves unreservedly to the story with judgment of neither the story nor themselves, instead of experiencing the journey to the fullest.
The meaning of the relationship between Giant and Dwarf unfolds growth processes and expands awareness.

We are all part of this voyage to Self Growth, which demands a connection with pain and weakness, as well as with innocence and positive attitude.


I have just recently started reading books again as an incentive for me to take a break and sit down. I was given the opportunity to review The Giant and the Dwarf by Dov Yanai. The book has such a great story and beautiful message about love, acceptance and respect. I could actually put myself in both shoes.
 
 
The Giant sees that his sister is getting picked on so he puts her on his shoulders. After time goes by, he tries to remove his sister but he can't. In his quest to find out how to remove his sister, he finds a wise old man. If you want to find out more, you'll have to read the book to find out what happens.
 
You can find THE GIANT and THE DWARF on Amazon and it's only 99¢! You can't go wrong at that price!! #SCORE

#BoBeeFan Wall Decal #Review

I love putting little quotes on our walls so when I was given the opportunity to review the BoBee wall decal (Made in the USA), I was really excited. We just moved into a new house and we need to add our own personal touch to these walls. When I saw that the quote was "You are my Sunshine" I knew I had to put that in my daughters bathroom. She had the one wall that needed a little something. This was perfect!! #SCORE
 
The decal came in a heavy duty poster tube and arrived in perfect condition. I also liked how they gift wrapped it, too. Upon opening the tube, the decal and information sheet was inside giving me some steps to follow.
 
After washing down my wall and making sure it was dry, I separated the decal from the paper and stuck it to the wall. I made sure it was centered before really pressing it on the wall.
 
 
Once it was in position, I made sure I applied the decal perfectly.
 
 
I love how smooth the decal went on and how easy the paper released the decal on to the wall.
 
 
It just peeled away!
 
The best part about this decal is that when my daughter looks at it she says,
"MOM, you are my sunshine!" It just warms my heart!!
 
 
Would you like a You Are My Sunshine Wall Decal, head on over and check them out!

What wall would you put this on?

The Healthy Me Team Review


 
 
“The Healthy Me Team” by Netta Gerad, is the story of how Vitamins, Minerals and Proteins build a healthy body. Sugar, sweets and artificial colors are the villains of the story. They make your body slow and unhealthy. When the boy in the story decides to eat healthy and cut out the junk food, the army of vitamins and minerals defeat the unhealthy villains.

I absolutely love the message in this story. Healthy eating should be a top priority and I think this book helped shine the light in the right direction.

If you are interested in The Healthy Me Team head on over to Amazon.

I have teamed up with a bunch of amazing bloggers to bring to you this next giveaway. Head on down to enter! Make sure to share this with your friends, too.
 
Emerson Creek Pottery has created handcrafted ceramic housewares in the USA since 1977. With our country suffering economically and jobs being scarce, purchasing products made in the USA is very important to me. I was thrilled to be able to review a USA made Honey Jar from Emerson Creek Pottery. Thank you to Emerson for the product to review. This is my honest opinion. Ceramic is one of my favorite types of kitchen ware. I have collected several pieces of pottery and realized my kitchen ware was not complete without a honey jar. Now I can discard the plain glass jars and plastic bear containers of honey sitting on my counter. When my package arrived I found the jar well wrapped and protected with thick brown paper. The lid to the jar came wrapped and taped to the jar along with the wooden honey stick. I have always wanted to try a honey stick and now I have one with my honey jar.

emerson1
This honey jar is the new 2013 Spring Dogwood design. I love the earth tones and the design and color of this honey jar, it is a work of art. This jar enhances my home decor and I love seeing it on my counter. Emerson has 13 different patterns of hand painted ceramic pottery. It is important to me that all Emerson Creek products are 100% lead free and safe to use in the oven, microwave and dishwasher.

emerson4

In an effort to be healthier I have recently started substituting honey for sugar in my cooking and eating routine. I am a tea lover and now when I have a cup of tea I can just add a little honey with my honey stick. I no longer have to wash a spoon or open any sticky capped jars. The opening of the honey jar was spacious and I easily poured the honey in. The lid to the honey jar fits nicely and has an opening for the handle of the honey stick.

emerson

  Over all I found this piece of pottery to be well made and the design is awesome. I love the functionality of the piece and the fact that there is a complete coordinating tea set to match it. There are plenty of design options and the choice in pieces seem endless. I would definitely recommend Emerson Creek Pottery as the place to get your pottery pieces for the kitchen.

Snuggle Scent Boosters™ Mission #TeamSnuggle #Review

 
I don't know about you, but I absolutely love scented laundry! I am always looking for the next big thing! I was recently given the opportunity to review a 20pk Snuggle Scent Boosters in Lavender Joy through #TeamSnuggle!
 
 
When I received the Snuggle Scent Boosters in Lavender Joy scent, I could smell the amazing scent of Lavender Joy without even opening the bag. It had such a soft fragrance that I just couldn't wait to do a load of laundry!  Did I just say that? LOL
 

First you toss in one on the Snuggle Scent Boosters!
Then you add your laundry. For me, I washed my comforter.
 
The directions are also on the bag and they are super simple!
 
PRODUCT DIRECTIONS: Add scent pacs directly into the washer drum, then add laundry on top. Never place scent pacs in the HE liquid dispenser or in the dryer. Keep container sealed between uses and store in a dry, cool and dark place. Dry hands before handling.
 
 
After my load was done, it was time for the test. I opened the washer and instantly smells the light fragrance of Lavender Joy! I was impressed already. While taking out my queen sized comforter, I couldn't resist the temptation... I took a huge sniff!! It smelled amazing.
 
It's been a week now since I've washed my comforter and let me tell you.... It still smells like I took it right out of the wash! The Lavender is the perfect scent to help me fall asleep at night. I absolutely love this product and I highly recommend it to everyone. You're going to love it.
 
DISCLAIMER: I received one or more of the product/s mentioned above to try however, all opinions are honest and my own and are not influenced in any way. No other form of compensation was received. I only recommend products I think are worth sharing. I am disclosing this in accordance with FTC 16 CFR Part 255.

Review: Chromo Inc Led 160 Light


 
 
I absolutely love taking pictures! My camera is always by my side to capture life's precious memories. Sometimes, I find that my setting is a bit too dark and need a little help with light. I was given the chance to review the Chromo Inc Led 160 Light on my Nikon.
 
I received the light, the bracket to hold the light onto my camera,
 
 
the instructions and 3 different filters.
 
 
 
Now all I needed was my test subject! Guess who unknowingly volunteered?
 

Yep, Elsa! She just hopped right up there and I started photo shooting!
 
Here's one with the white filter
 
 

 
Here is one from the yellow filter
 
 
And here is the purple filter
 
 
Each photo shows just a tint of color from the filter without overpowering your photo which is nice. I love the softness of each photo. The results were great!
These filters are easy to exchange between shots and they don't take much time to swap out.
 
The only thing I would have to say is a "con" would be the fact that it takes 6AA batteries and makes the unit on the heavy side. I found that I have more weight on my camera which made some of the photos challenging as it was getting top heavy when trying to photo shoot Elsa close up.
 
You can find the Chromo Cl160 LED video light on Amazon  
 



 
You can find this along with some other items at Chromo's website.
 
Chromo Inc. is providing a $5 off coupon code for Clipping Money readers.  Use code: U29RWEVS when you purchase this product on Amazon.
 
SCORE!
