Hydrating ChapStick that Leaves Your Lips Kissable Soft! Giveaway


A year ago, I moved from wet and rainy England to sunny and dry Denver, Colorado. It took no time at all for my skin to feel the effects of living in a climate devoid of moisture. And nothing has suffered more than my poorly cracked lips!

Luckily, Ive consistently kept Chapstick close by which turned my sandpaper lips into soft, silky, and ultra moisturized lips!

ChapStick Flavors

ChapStick, a brand people have depended on for over 100 years, offers numerous flavors like their Classics which come in flavors like original and strawberry to Medicated, Peppermint, True Shimmer, Overnight, Tangy Green Apple, and many more.

One of my favorites is a new flavor, Raspberry Crme, which contains SPF 15 with an ultra hydrating formula and Aloe and Vitamin E. It smells great, hclip_image004
ydrates like nobodys business and apparently makes me extra kissable per my hubby!

Another great new product that Im taking advantage of now that Ive finally gotten my butt back into running is ChapSticks Sports Ready which not only features a clip that easily attaches to my shorts as I run, but also protects my lips from the sun with SPF 30, is water resistant for up to 80 minutes, and prevents and protects my lips from drying and cracking in the wind and cold weather. Sports Ready is part of a new Active line that also includes LipShield 365 and Ultra 30.

I highly recommend you check out all the ChapStick flavors that offer great lip protection and kissable fun!

Vietnamese Shrimp Spring Rolls Recipe +Giveaway

Vietnamese Spring Rolls Recipe
Last weekend our neighbors invited us over for a dinner party. We spent the evening enjoying the food and the company of a few neighboring families. It was good fun. We got to learn more about the people we have lived next door to for years!

The family that hosted the dinner are from Vietnam and they treated us by cooking traditional foods from their culture. We tried many new dishes including pho and Vietnamese spring rolls! The food kept coming and coming all night! They were very accommodating and we definitely did not leave hungry!

A couple of the dishes served had shrimp in it. I got a new perspective of ways to include shrimp in meals. One of my new favorite ways to prepare shrimp is by making Vietnamese spring rolls. They are fresh, quick and easy to prepare!

Vietnamese Spring Rollsspring-rolls recipe gortons

Recipe for Spring Rolls Dipping Sauce


  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 jalapeno, minced
  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar


Mash minced garlic and minced jalapeo together with mortar and pestle. Mix in sugar. Then mix in fish sauce, lime juice and vinegar. Let stand for at least 30 minutes. Gortons-Grilled-Shrimp-Reci

Recipe for rice paper rolls


  • 8 oz. of Gortons Classic Grilled Shrimp
  • 1/2 cucumber, (matchstick-size strips)
  • 1 cup carrot, (matchstick-size strips or grated)
  • 1 cups bean sprouts
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 6 lettuce leaves, romaine or iceberg, (shredded)
  • 10-12 (8-9 inch rounds) rice paper sheets


Cook shrimp as directed on Gortons box and cut the shrimp in half. Set aside. Wet rice paper to soften. Layer on the lettuce, herbs, sprouts, cucumbers, carrots in a line on the rice paper leaving 1 inch borders on each end . Then top it off with the halved shrimp pieces. Fold in the ends and roll it up in a tight cylinder. Repeat with remaining paper, cut each diagonally and arrange on platter with dipping sauce!

Total Preparation Time: 30 min.
Serving: Approx. 12 rolls

Notes: Yum! The ingredients of mint, basil, cilantro, spicy chives, cucumber, carrot, lettuce, bean sprouts, and shrimp so fresh! These spring roll were so different than all of the other (typically fried) spring rolls Ive had. It is great for lunches or snacks. You can choose to eat it with the dipping sauce or not!

This recipe can be made using one of my favorite pre-cooked shrimp, Gortons Classic Grilled shrimp! Gortons shrimp is tender, delicious and best of all you dont need to take off the head or anything! Its pre cooked too! Gortons shrimp comes in a number of different varieties including breaded, sauted, etc. I have tired them all, but prefer the plain shrimp for adding to meals such as soups, spring rolls and pasta dishes. Oh, and I should mention they are only 110 calories and 3g of fat!

I encourage you to Eat Seafood Twice a Week all year round and check out more from Gortons on their Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter @gortonsseafood.

Skin Rejuvenation Cleaning Brush from Toilet Tree

I dont know about you, but sometimes I am overwhelmed by the number of skin-clearing products on the market. There isnt a day that goes by that I dont hear some celebrity on television, read about some chemical online or in a magazine, or just have a conversation with someone about how/what they are doing to clear their skin currently. Its exhausting trying to find a solution, to a very, very frustrating problem pimples and acne.

Hi, Im almost 30 and still have pimples

It wasnt until recently that I started breaking out for no apparent reasons. I am not sure whether to thank or curse the pimple gods for waiting to give me breakout after breakout until I was in my mid twenties. I am sure some would say I am lucky because I avoided acne throughout my self-absorbed and sensitive teen years but having a pizza face at age 28 isnt exactly great either.

So what do I do about it? Well, as a product reviewer, I test products out. I find ones that I like and work for me and ones that dont. I slowly learn about skin care products by testing each out individual and seeing if they stand the test.

What is this about clogged pores and dead skin cells?

This wasnt the first time I had heard about how important it is to remove dead skin cells from your face for a cleaner and clearer look. Id heard it time and time again from the spa esthetician and the dermatologist too. But I never could fathom spending a hundred dollars (or more) for the machine. Well, when I saw that there was a product from Toilet Tree that was essentially the same idea and concept a machine that spun and removed dead skin cells, and was only $32.95, I couldnt resist trying it. The price is reasonable, and if this product really worked, it would be a product I would gladly recommend. toilet-tree-review-product-
Tested and Approved

The Professional Skincare System gives you the spa feel, at an do-it-yourself home price! The machine works by a quickly spinning attachment head and literally brushes and polishes away dead skin. It exfoliates and then rejuvenates. An added benefit to your skin being cleared away of pore-clogging dead skin is that your face will be soft as ever!

After using this product for a couple weeks, I decided a few things. The system is well made, inexpensive and has all the pieces necessary for improving my skin. BUT I needed to be patient. It took around a week to notice any difference. While my skin felt soft after using it just once, I didnt realize any appearance change for a few days after that.

My Recommendations

If you need some help with reducing problem skin such at oily skin, dry patches, fine lines, blemishes, visible pores, and blackheads; this product will assist you in reducing the appearance of those. It only takes a few minutes a day, and is easy and worthwhile. All of us have dead skin on our face, and this is an ideal way of getting rid of it, to help reduce clogged pores, and save us money at the spa!

Product and Purchase Information

The system includes the main machine, 2 face exfoliators (1 soft for sensitive skin and 1 medium for normal skin), 1 body exfoliator, 1 pumice sphere and batteries all for $32.95. It is waterproof, so perfectly safe when using during your daily shower routine. It comes in the colors: pink, blue, grey. ToiletTree Products Professional Skin Care System is available on Amazon.com.

A Beginners Guide To Waistcoats

Though they have been around for centuries, their application for most men is tricky. Though the weathered waistcoat wearer will of course know his Edwardian waistcoat from his Victorian, the complex world of waistcoat fashion can lead even the most stylish of fellows astray.

But where do waistcoats come from?

Interestingly, waistcoats are one of very few items of clothing that we are able to pinpoint exactly in history. In 1666 on the 7th of October, Samuel Pepys the diarist for King Charles II wrote that:

The king hath yesterday in council declared his resolution of setting a fashion for clothes which he will never alter. It will be a vest, I know not well how.

These two sentences therefore laid in ink the birth of the waistcoat and signaled the beginning of a clothing item that would last and continue into the 21st century.

But how do you go about wearing a waistcoat?

Propelled perhaps by the stylish looks of Donald Draper of Mad Men, the look of the waistcoat has found itself yet again amongst the shoulders of the young and if worn correctly, it can turn a scruffy rogue into a dazzling prince. The first thing to get right however, is the fit.


Getting this right is important, and you must remember that your waistcoat must exceed the height of your belt line; thus the meaning and origin of the term, waistcoat.

Another important thing in regards to fitting is to make sure that your arms have room to breathe; tight arm holes will only course your shirt to rise up when you raise your arms aloft.

Remember also, that a proper waistcoat wearer shall always keep his bottom button left open. What happens at the top however, is really up to him.


Similar to most things in life, simple works every time and the same can be easily said for the ethos of the waistcoat. Investing in a neutral tone for your waistcoat shall also help you ease into the sophisticated world of the coat; greys, blacks and navy colors all work wonderfully well to start with.

Aloof and bright colors should come along later, when your knowledge and confidence expands.

Another thing that most people dont realize however is that waistcoats can be worn at any time of the year and with this, the material can change too.

In summer for example it would be advisable to wear waistcoats that are made from light cotton and perhaps linen. When the weather turns a little worse however, tweed or wool make great materials for keeping the cold out. For a selection of waistcoats, try http://www.sbuckinghams.com


The great thing about waistcoats is that they can be worn basically anywhere depending on the design of your individual coats.

Whether you are to attend a formal black tie dinner or you are simply going off to the odd trendy bar; the waistcoat fits both of these occasions beautifully.

Whatever you do however, do not take this advice lightly, you must steer away from those silly novelty designed waistcoats.

This Christmas I wish for a Pinterest Looking Home


Have you ever gotten lost in a Pinterest home daydream? Where you found yourself on Pinterest for maybe a little too long pinning home dcor, home remodeling ideas or beautiful looking rooms designed with porcelain, ceramic, stone, tile, wood and laminate?

I sure have! It is not uncommon for me to get lost in one of these Pinterest daydreams. Pinterest has an endless selection of pictures to keep my dreams going on and on. I love pinning boards of beautiful homes, weddings, events and more. Here are some examples from my Pinterest home board:

I love dreaming of beautiful homes and exquisite remodel jobs. Someday I know I will have the home of my dreams, but until then, my husband and I can do small DIY home remodels like finishing our deck and setting up a mini home theatre in our basement. We did both this year, and they have proven to be rewarding and made a huge difference in the feel of our home.

As you are probably aware, I am a wise spender, but I also take pride in a job well done. I feel there are many ways to do a good job on a remodel, without breaking the bank. For instance having experienced friends and family help you with a remodel job. I bet you could make a list of people who are handy, have done a similar remodels or even work in the particular industry. Talk to them about helping out with your home project. They might be willing to work at a very discounted rate. Also you can find good help on Craigslist just ask for recommendations of their previous work first. These folks might just be in-between jobs or recently laid off. You might find someone with a excellent resume and lots of experience! This will save you time and money, and you wont have to learn how to do it all on your own.


Beyond finding different avenues of help (friends, family, Craigslist) with your remodel, you should also look for discounted materials, closeout products and off-brand names. Your remodel can add up quickly if you are not spending wisely. One place to begin your search for great deals on your do-it-yourself items is Floor and Dcor Outlet. For instance, you can find low price flooring and the best selection in hardwood, tiles and more at reasonable prices.

So if you are looking for an affordable option for a home renovation I highly recommend making a list of people who have experience and checking out Floor and Dcor for reasonably-priced materials.

    Check out more about Floor and Dcor on their social networking sites: Facebook and Twitter @FloorandDecor. Find some inspiration on their Pinterest page too!
Disclosure: I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Floor and Decor. I received a promotional item to thank me for participating.

Give an Experience Gift this Holiday Season with Cloud 9 Living!


Are you a bigger fan of giving or receiving?

Ill never forget when my parents threw me a surprise party when I was turning 9 years old. I walked into the skating rink with my best friend, prepared for a leisurely day filled with giggles, secret-sharing, and skating, Upon entering, however, a crowd of friends from school looked up from securing their skates and jumped up with a rousing HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Oh my gosh, I looked over at my mom, grinning from ear to ear in the corner, and burst into a million tears. HOW COULD SHE DO THIS TO ME!? I get so uncomfortable when the attention is all on me. Opening presents is the worst. I prefer that gift givers come by, drop gifts off, and let me open them later when no ones around. Weird, right?

Well, gift giving is a whole different story. There is nothing I love more than searching far and wide for the perfect gift for the perfect person, wrap and re-wrap until its perfect, find the perfect card, the perfect moment to give, and then wait for the smile with delight! I just love it!

My love for gift giving, however, makes the whole experience relatively stressful for me. Im never satisfied until I find a gift thats just right. Sooo, you can imagine my excitement when I learned about Cloud 9 Living. Instead of hopping from store to store and risking getting a gift that spends the duration of its life in the back of someones closet, Cloud 9 offers experience gifts that leave behind memories that last a lifetime.

Cloud 9 Living offers over 1,700 unique experiential gifts for men, women, and couples in 43 regions. Examples include:

Race a Lamborghini clip_image002

Learn to fly a plane/helicopter

Ride in a fighter pilot for a day

Sunset sailing cruise

Couples massages

Food and wine gifts

Golf lessons with a PGA pro

and many more

Experiential gifts offer something that material gifts are often missing. People arent looking for stuff these days as much as they are looking for cool experiences. Research studies have even found that:

Spending money on life experiences makes people happier than spending money on material items.

People want to buy their friends experiences because the newness from a new thing wears off in about 9-to-14 months whereas a good memory will gain luster over time.

While this may not be nearly as thrilling as speed racing in a Lamborghini or learning to fly in an airplane, I chose to be pampered at a local spa for 3 hours!!! Cloud 9 Living sent me to A New Spirit Wellness Center and Spa for a Massage and Float. It was a fantastic experience all around! Cloud 9 Living made it all so easy.

Heres how it works for the purchaser:clip_image006

To buy a gift, just go online to www.cloud9living.com. You can search by Region, Experience Type, Recipient, Occasion, or Most Popular.

Gift certificates can be sent to the recipient in a free personalized gift pack (see picture), via email, or in a format that you can print and give.

Heres how it works for the receiver:

To redeem a gift certificate, go online, pick three time/date options that work for you and a representative from Cloud 9 Living will get back to you within three business days.

The Cloud 9 Living representative will handle all appointment scheduling for you.

You will receive a one week reminder email.

Show up to the appointment and ENJOY!!!

Great benefits:

Buy Now, Book Later gift certificates have no expiration date and do not require booking at the time of purchase.

Free returns within 30 days

Free exchanges if the recipient would have preferred a sailboat cruise over the surfing experience they received, he/she has the option to exchange any experience for another (required to pay price difference).

You can purchase a specific experience or an open ended gift certificate.

Gift certificates can be re-sent and re-printed (so no more worrying about losing it!).

You can win your own Cloud 9 Living experience by entering their 9 Days of Christmas contest, which is kicking off November 1st! Entrants around the country can win an experience package during each of the nine days leading up to Christmas by simply entering their email address HERE.

Halloween How To Books: Vintage Hair and Vintage Makeup


Do you love the styles of other generations? Would you have loved to live in the 1920s just so you could wear flapper dresses and have slick waves in your hair? Or are pearls and flowery feminine dresses your favorite decades ensembles?

Personally, I love the vintage styles of the 1920s-1960s. They remind me of classy, elegant women, and chivalrous gentlemen. A time when there were less problems and more family time. For whatever reason, if you love vintage things or vintage looks, you must check out these books.

HRST Books has two relevant vintage look books: Vintage Hairstyling and Retro Makeup.

And there couldnt be a more perfect time to share with you these books, than around Halloween! Maybe you are going to be a 50s housewife for Halloween or a classic Hollywood star like Marilyn Monroe or Elizabeth Taylor. If you want to perfect your vintage look, youve gotta see these step-by-step guides to recreating classic vintage hair and makeup from the 1920s-1960s.

If you love vintage things as much as we do, you must check out this new book Eliza Magazinevintage-haristyle-how-to-bo

Book Details: Vintage Hairstyling: Retro Hairstyles with Step-by-Step Techniques

This book shows how to replicate hairstyles that are classic and beautiful, elegant and feminine. These eye catching styles from the 1930s, 1940s, 1950s and 1960s are all organized in the simple, easy-to-follow 200-page full color book.

The hair book begins with basic elements and then works its way to advanced techniques. Chapter one describes the tools and products used throughout. Chapter two offers detailed instructions on creating different curls, including the pin curl, the basis for many vintage hairstyles. Chapter three breaks down the proper way to comb the curls for the effect including creating finger waves, Marcel waves, pompadours, and waves from pin curls. The fourth chapter of the book provides step-by-step start-to-finish detailed instructions for 33 different hairstyles created with different hair lengths and textures. The final 2 chapters in the book provide ideas for hair accessories, makeup and nails to finish off the look.vintage-hair-how-to-guides
This book is a great guide book, but also a very fun read. The Finished Styles chapter of the book contains quality images of models with their finished hairstyles. Sprinkled throughout the book are interesting facts about the history of hairstyling, origins of styles, and information about the starlets and performers from the golden age of Hollywood who made the hairstyles popular (like Jean Harlow, Rita Hayworth, Veronica Lake).

No matter your skill level or hair type, Vintage Hairstyling: Retro Styles with Step by Step Techniques has something for everybody. If you are looking for a hairstyle for a special occasion like a period wedding or a style to go with a vintage prom dress, this book has both up-do options and options for a longer hair look. Swing dancers looking for a style for dancing will find many options with staying power.


Book Details: Retro Makeup: Techniques for Applying the Vintage Look

Did you know that cosmetics during the years of the early and mid-twentieth century developed greatly and became what we are familiar with today?

Each decade of this time period had its own style of makeup; its own signature lips, eye makeup, rouge techniques, etc. This makeup book shows the changes in makeup styles over these decades and provides practical, easy-to-follow steps and guidance in recreating a lovely vintage face. By using the trends in shape and color of a specific decade, emulating a time period is even easier and better replicated.

This book came together with countless hours of research done by the author. Inside youll find a multitude of interesting facts about makeup style during the early and mid-20th century in a fun, colorful layout. The 104-page full-color book starts with a brief history of makeup during the Victorian and Edwardian Eras and then provides practical knowledge in applying makeup to help better use the information provided in each decade. It then jumps into full details about makeup styles during the 1920s, 1930s, 1940, 1950s and 1960s, with each decade having its own dedicated chapter. Each decade has information on historical events and innovations in products that were affecting makeup trends, popular shapes, and colors. Also in each decade are start-to-finish instructions on various makeup looks made popular by movie stars, models and beauty magazines of the time.1950s-makeup-how-to-book

No matter your skill level or makeup goal, Retro Makeup has it all. Whether you are researching for a theatrical production, hosting a time period party, or just love the look of beauty of a specific decade, this book will not disappoint. It is as much fun to read as it is to apply the knowledge it provides.

My Thoughts:Both books are eye-catching and easy-to-follow

HRST Books and the author Lauren Rennells have done an incredible job in producing these books. They have a range of educational and informative information about hair and makeup of the 1920s-1960s, and display the resources in a organized and colorful format. These book have remarkable photographs and illustrations I could browse the pictures forever! The full color pages of this book are very pleasing to the eye. I love the guides and find them incredible easy to understand and follow.

These books would be great for those in theatrical productions, for Halloween party costumes, cosmetologists, or if you are just interested in the beauty of the vintage times. For me, while I dont plan on dressing in vintage outfits anytime soon, I just simply enjoy this book for its lovely pictures and entertainment factor.

Vintage Hairstyling: Retro Styles with Step-by-Step Techniques and Retro Makeup: Techniques for Applying the Vintage Look compliment make a great gift set. The two books can be purchased separate or you can save money when you buy both of these popular titles at the same time! Together, the book set is $55.95. You can find the books at HRST Books, on Vintage Hairstyling Facebook page or on Amazon.com.

Proper Ways to Drink TeaFrom Tetley Tea

A couple of years ago my husband and I visited some friends and took holiday in Ireland. It was a magical trip of exploring small towns, the countryside, and the big city too. We ate, drank and enjoyed like the Irish. While we were there we tested famous Irish drinks like Jameson whiskey, Guinness, Kilkenny, Baileys Irish Cream, Mead liquor and Irish coffee.

But when we didnt have a pint glass in hand, we had a tea cup. Now, this was new to me. The Irish drank tea after every meal, during the meal, and then even in-between meals. And since we were doing as the Irish did, I thought I would join them. I wasnt a tea drinker before the trip, but Ireland got me hooked.

When we got home from our trip, I craved tea after dinner. All of the sudden I was checking out a whole new section on the grocery isle I had never bought tea before! Now I have about 6 boxes in the cabinet, from fruity teas, chai, black, caffeinated and non caffeinated teas. Some I enjoy without any additions, while others I like to add milk, honey or sugar to!

The latest tea that I have tried is Tetley tea. The British Blend (just dont tell my Irish friends) is one of the few sold in the United States, along with Black Tea and Green Tea. The tea is simple and soothing for an after dinner tea beverage, or just for a sippable warm treat during the day, especially as the days get colder! It is a rich and robust tea, with some caffeine to give me a little pick me up. The tea leaves are from some of the worlds finest from Africa and India. I like to enjoy this tea with a little sugar and milk.

But was I drinking it correctly? Did you know that there are classic methods of drinking tea? Like if the sugar or milk go first? So if you want to be more proper about your tea here are some tips:

  • Rather than stirring, the correct way to incorporate milk is to place the teaspoon in the 6 Oclock position in the cup and gently fold the milk from 6 Oclock to 12 Oclock
  • Never leave the spoon in, remove it and set it on a plate or napkin
  • Milk, rather than cream is preferred, so it doesnt overpower the flavor of the tea
  • Some may add milk before, but adding it after the tea is poured ensures the right amount is added
  • Sugar should be added after milk- 1-2 teaspoons is the standard amount
  • Although a practice of many, it is not correct etiquette to wrap the string of the tea bag around the spoon and squeeze, but rather, it should be removed and set aside
  • Black tea and black-based tea blends are typically the only ones served with milk
  • tetley-tea-spokesman
    Though most tea today is drank from mugs, if using a traditional tea cup, you should never loop your finger through the handle, but rather grasp it with your thumb and first two fingers. Holding the pinkie up help balance the cup to avoid spills
  • Though tea traditions date back hundreds of years, the fact that it provides and rewarding and beneficial experience hasnt changed and Tetley, the tea preferred by more British households, brings the classic flavors and rich blends to the US

A New Protection Against Airborne GermsHalo Oral Antiseptic

With the job that I have (flight attendant), I get sick quite often. When I first started, I can honestly tell you that I was sick more than healthy. Over the past years it has improved, but I am not completely immune to all the germ-filled passengers, thats for sure! And now that winter is coming, so is flu season and more germs Honestly, I will do whatever it takes to keep healthy and avoid getting sick around the holidays. Some helpful life tips are eating well, exercising regularly, and getting a good amount of sleep. All of these are a great start, but then there are also vitamins, washing your hands and more.

The latest new tip I have tried is the NEW Halo Oral Antiseptic Spray. This spray kills 99% of the airborne germs that you breath in. Very cool since I am in close contact with hundreds of people breathing on me everyday. Okay, that sounds odd. But seriously, the plane is just re-circulated (poorly, even) air. Everyone is breathing on everyone! So if you travel at all, or are traveling these upcoming holidays, read on, because you might want to consider this for your travels! halo-germs-spray

The Halo Antiseptic spray is the first and only product that is clinically proven to kill airborne germs that you breath in, including a broad spectrum of bacteria and viruses, such as rhinovirus (the virus that causes the common cold), influenza and H1N1. It works from simply spraying it in the mouth, it coats the oral cavity, blocking and killing airborne germs breathed in through your nose and mouth for up to six hours. (Which is great since my flight routes are usually about that long!)

I realize not all of you travel as frequently as I do, but think about the other germ-filled areas you might encounter. A daycare, childs school, doctors office a grocery cart handle or door knob! Not to mention all the germs that float around in the air science has proven that germs can stay infectious for hours beyond a sneeze or cough! But if you are healthy there should be no reason to worry, right? I hope so, but I also dont deny adding extra precautions like the new Halo Oral Antiseptic.

Purchase Your Own!! Halo is available in the cough and cold section at CVS, Rite Aid, Kmart, Walmart and more nationwide. They are sold in two flavors for adults, berry and citrus, and a grape flavor for children ages two and up. The travel-size bottle is 1 fl oz. (30 ml), providing 35 doses for a suggested retail price of $12.99. Halo is alcohol-, dye- and sugar-free.

Connect with Halo!! For more information about Halo and the dangers of airborne germs, visit www.halogermdefense.com and Halo Oral Antiseptic on Facebook and Twitter @HaloGermDefense.

Purex plus Oxi is Great for The Clumsy! 3 Winner Giveaway


What is the most powerful Purex detergent you can buy right now? Well, thats simple, the new Purex plus Oxi. It has just recently came out in the market as a detergent with super stain removing powers. Purex plus Oxi has even more stain-fighting power than regular Purex detergent because it combines the proven performance of Purex detergent + the stain-fighting power of Oxi. And by super stain powers, I mean it can get rid of over 101 stains!

Just how dirty are flight attendants?

Get your mind out of the gutter. Ok now, lets begin. Heres the low down on just how nasty my work uniform is after a 3-day trip While I might start off put together, after a few flight legs per day, Ive most likely spilled juice, soda and maybe even some dribbles of wine on my polyester pieces. I am not even that clumsy, but you try serving 150 people drinks in less that 40 minutes. Not only do I get drinks all over me, if you fly you know just how much variation there is in temperature on the plane. Hot, cold, hot cold. I sweat in my uniform like I am working out in the gym. Oh, and all the people grime I have at least rubbed elbows with 10 passengers as I try to shimmy down the narrow aisle. I brush up again the dirty plane too. Then after the gross day, I am so exhausted by the time I reach the hotel, I just throw my clothes on the hotel bed or floor. Is that dirty enough for you?

So hopefully I have painted an image of my incredible grimy, gross work uniform and my exceptional need for a good laundry detergent. Now the question remains, is Purex plus Oxi powerful enough?Purex-Oxi-Stains-New-Laundr

Stain testing testing, testing.

I put the Purex plus Oxi formula to the test on my grimy work clothes. I took them out of my flight bag, took off my nametags, wings and other pins (we flight attendants love the pin bling!) and threw em in my Whirlpool! Once washed and dried, my uniform was crisp and clean and ready for another round! The scent of fresh morning burst was pleasant and light, a perfect laundry scent. I have to say, the Purex plus Oxi lives up to its name and doesnt disappoint the brand known for such great products, like the Purex, Zout, Natural Elements, Purex Complete 3-in-1, Purex Complete Crystals, Purex Complete with Zout and more.

Purex plus Oxi Scare Away Stains Sweepstakes

You know I like a great sweepstakes just like next next sweeper. So here is one you cannot resist because it is a CASH PRIZE! Thats correct readers sign up for your chance to win up to $1,000 in cash! There is one grand prize of $1000 and a years supply of Purex plus Oxi and 250 2nd prizes of $25! Check it out HERE.

UPS Man Will ID You California Wine Club

Tonight I had to show my ID to the UPS man.

No, our town is not saving money on police officers by splitting the jobs with the package delivery people. It is just what happens to you when you get wine shipped to your house, right to your door!

But this was a first for me. When I was asked to show ID, I honestly didnt know if I should show him or not. Was this a weird way of hitting on me? A new way to verify they are delivering to the right house? Its my house sir, I answered the door didnt I? Believe me, I am not lounging around someone elses house in my sweatpants.

Oh, right then it dawned on me, of course! It was because I was expecting my first shipment of the California Wine Club wines! I then quickly grabbed my ID, took the package out of his hand (with the utmost excitement) and ran for a box cutter to open up the box of world renown wines.California-Wine-Club-Member

California Wine Club

For my very first shipment ever, I enjoyed two wines that I had never tried before. One was a red blend called a Tempranillo and the other a Sauvignon Blanc. Both were from the same winery, The Robelo Family Winery. This winery was new to me and I loved trying it out for the first time! The wines are from California and the story began in 1968 with Reynaldo, a Mexican migrant vineyard worker who now has his own winery and is living the American dream.

We enjoyed our glasses of wine over some superb home cooked meals. The white wine was light and refreshing while the red was full of cranberry, blackberry, cinnamon and spice aromas. It was flavorful and strong. We prefer red wine, but we were pleasantly surprised by the delicious crisp flavors of this white.

My Conclusion

It is such a great idea having wine delivered right to your door. It saves a trip to the grocery or liquor store (depending on where you live) and allows to you try new wines that you may have never heard of before. With the California Wine club you get the Uncorked magazine plus your 2 wines a month with the Premier Club membership ($49.95 +sh). The convenience of the process is worth the membership.

Now that the UPS IDing me mystery is solved, it is proven, there isnt anything better than opening your door to a home delivery of wines. No liquor store. No lines. Just immediate wine at the door and in my hand!
