Holiday Gift Guide: Fiskars Billhook Saw!




Hey guys! I'm back again with another Fiskars post! This time, our friends at Fiskars sent us the Billhook Saw to try out. I have to say, I think this is my favorite tool that we have tried out so far! In my opinion, this thing is like the "All In One" of yard tools! This amazing tool is designed to saw branches, cut stems and shoots and chop vines. It's really a one stop shop for your yard needs. This has been an amazing tool when it comes to clearing our fence line and cutting up some small trees and bushes along the house. 


The curve of the blade is great for pulling stems and weeds, and it's easy to use one hand for cutting and one hand for gathering weeds. The blade is hardened steel, and it stays strong and sharp through heavy use. The billhook saw also features a very cool contoured grip which helps your hand comfortably fit in the tool. I really like this feature, although you wouldn't think it would make a difference, it does, and it makes the tool much more comfortable to use. 











I'm telling you guys, the Billhook Saw has been a great tool addition to our entourage of yard cleaning stuffs!! I am really sad that Winter is here, since now I have to stop working outside. It's very hard for me to stay inside and do inside work. I would much rather be outdoors working in the yard, alas, I guess it is that time of year to stay inside and we will get right back at it in the Spring! In the meantime, make sure to follow Fiskars on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, and youtube to stay updated with their latest products, tips and tools to help you with any job!

So, you guys, we are on month #3 of feeding our Lucy girl Wellness® Complete Health™ dog food, and I have to say, I am really loving this brand. Not only do I feel better about what I am feeding my girl, but I honestly think that she feels better as well. She's just a puppy still, a little over a year old, but I can really tell a difference in her energy levels and I think that overall she is more healthy now that she has been exclusively eating this food. I have to say, that I am also very impressed with the Wellness brand itself, and the company's attention to sustainability and also to being environmentally friendly. 

Wellness is the first ever pet food company in the US to partner with TerraCycle. This program is really revolutionary in the fact that it encourages pet owners, schools, and organizations to mail in (free of charge!) their empty pet food packaging to earn gifts or cash for their favorite non-profit or school! How amazing is this idea? Keeping waste to a minimum, encouraging sustainability and recycling, all while helping to support local causes? What could be better?! You can easily sign up for the Wellness Recycling Program from the TerraCycle website, and it's free to send your packaging into the program. After that, each pound of waste recycled equals 100 TerraCycle points, which can be redeemed for gifts or cash sent to your favorite school or nonprofit organization! I love this idea! 

If you are interested in trying out Wellness Complete products for your furry friend, check them out at PetSmart. Also, make sure to follow them on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram to stay up to date with all the awesome things that they have going on right now! Wellness is an amazing brand, and I am so happy that we found them! They are doing great things and I am happy to be along for the ride with them!

They always end up stuck on my phone forever, never to be seen by anyone but me.

Think Ahead For Winter: Do You Have A Tree Trimming Service?

I've talked to you guys before about the ups and downs of buying my own property, and whether or not at age 30 I was really ready or not.. I'm still on the fence about whether or not I was really ready, but the deed is done, so I guess it's time to put on my big girl panties and be a grown up homeowner! Now that we are getting into winter, I am starting to think about stuff like snow removal, winterizing, and getting a tree trimming service.

 A few years ago, we had a giant ice storm, and we ended up with trees down everywhere. Now, at the time, I was just a renter, so I really didn't have anything to worry about, but now that I own my home, I am really thinking about these kinds of things. It's crazy how different your outlook becomes on things as your life begins to change. 

So, guys, do any of you have any tips for me about how to prepare my home for winter? This is my first winter season as a homeowner, and I can't just pick up the phone and say "Emergency! Landlord help me!" anymore.. Leave me your advice below, I'd love to hear it!

Save BIG!! $5.00 Off Wellness Complete Dog Food at Petsmart!! #WellnessPet #PetSmart


This post is sponsored by Wellness and the BlogPawsTM Pet Influencer Network™. I am being compensated to help share the availability of Wellness Products at PetSmart, but we only share information we feel is relevant to our readers. Neither Wellness nor PetSmart is responsible for the content of this article.

Well guys, as most of you know, we switched our Lucy girl over to Wellness® Complete Health™ dog food about a month ago, and so far, the change has been fantastic! I swear, I really never knew the changes that going grain free would make for my pup! The great thing about switching to Wellness Complete food, is that there really is an option for everyone. No matter what your dog's preference, or your budget, there is a Wellness option for you! Plus, add to that the fact that Wellness is sold at PetSmart, where I am already doing my normal pet shopping, and it's a win/win situation!



The decision for our family to switch over to a food like Wellness was an easy one, after we researched all of the benefits and checked out the huge selection that PetSmart has to offer. They have different flavors, and different specific formulas depending on breed, size, or age of your pet. For example, special formulas for small or large breed dogs, or for adult dogs or puppies.

I never really knew much about what I was feeding my dog until I really started to do my research. Now I know how important it is to choose a brand (such as Wellness) that uses high quality proteins like fish or poultry as the first ingredient in their foods. I would have never paid attention to these details before, I just picked a pet food off the shelf, but that is not the case anymore. I have also learned about the importance of healthy fats for skin, coat, and energy, and the need for complex carbs and wholesome grains to provide a source of quick energy for pets.

Do you want to make the switch and find out about the Wellness difference for yourself? You can, and to make it even easier, our friends at PetSmart and Wellness are offering $5.00 off any 24 lb. bag of Wellness Complete Pet Food at PetSmart!!! Offer expires 11/30/2016, so hurry in to get your savings! Don't forget to follow our friends at Wellness on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to stay up to date with all the great products they have for your furry friends!

#Holiday Gift Guide: Bloomsy Box Flower of the Month Subscription Box Review!




Hey Guys! Today I am going to share with you a great holiday gift guide sponsor who I am really excited to work with! I mean, what girl doesn't like getting flowers? Bloomsy Box is a subscription box that is different from the others! It's actually a "flower of the month" club, where you receive a different bunch of beautiful, unique fresh flowers every month for a super affordable price! I am loving this service! 

Bloomsy Box, as I mentioned before, is super affordable. A basic subscription starts at only $34.99, which is definitely doable. I think this would make an AMAZING gift, to order a Bloomsy Box subscription as a gift so you can let a friend or family member enjoy beautiful flowers all year long! It would be especially great for a guy who isn't always great at being romantic or spontaneous with his lady, and would ensure that she always gets beautiful fresh flowers! Love it! 

One of the greatest things about Bloomsy Box is that the flowers are sent straight from the farms where they are grown. There is no middle man, no mark up. That's because Bloomsy Box focuses on single variety, hand tied flower bunches. No mixed bouquets, no filler flowers, and no expensive markup from a middle man. What's not to love? 

We recently got to try out Bloomsy Box, and I was so impressed! The flowers arrived quickly, and came wonderfully packaged. This is the first time I have received mail order flowers, so I was a little bit concerned about the process, and what the quality of the flowers would actually be. I am so impressed with what I received! The flowers we received had not quite bloomed yet, so we placed them in the vase with the special plant food we were sent. 

Within a couple of days, the flowers had bloomed beautifully, and they have lasted forever! Seriously, it's two weeks later and my flowers are still looking beautiful! I am loving them, they make me in a super good mood every day when I walk into the kitchen! This is such a great company, I would recommend them to anyone! It's a great gift idea as well, and you can choose three different sizes of bouquets depending on your needs! Bloomsy Box is a super cool idea, and I'd love for you guys to try it out and let me know if your experience is as great as mine has been! Make sure to check out Bloomsy Box on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and YouTube

Thanksgiving Potato Chips from Boulder Canyon!!

here

One of the coolest things about being a blogger is seriously, coming across new items and products that I would have never tried in a million years! Today's review is about one of those products! Let me introduce you guys to Thanksgiving flavored potato chips from Boulder Canyon! Yes, you read that right, we are talking about THANKGIVING in a CHIP form. This is not a drill people!


The folks at Boulder Canyon Natural Foods have perfected the Turkey Day chip genre (I didn't even know that was a thing, did you?!?!) and I am here to tell the tale. We got the chance to try the Turkey and Gravy flavor, as well as the Pumpkin Pie flavor. Well, I say "we" tried them, but I really mean that I made the kids try them first, since I was more than a little bit nervous! 


They tried the Turkey And Gravy flavor first, since they were convinced that it was going to be gross! However, I have to say that the whole family was pleasantly surprised. Now, these chips DO taste like turkey and gravy, but that is actually a good thing! This one was not super overwhelming, and tasted sort of like a regular potato chip with a little bit of extra flavor. 

The Pumpkin Pie chips, surprisingly, were the star of the show around here! It was almost like dessert in a chip, if you can believe that! The sweetness was there, but not overwhelming, which was pretty great. There were also hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, molasses, and pumpkin pie spice, which I loved. I have to admit, I was the one who kept going back for more and more handfuls of these chips! I love Kettle cooked potato chips anyways, so these were perfect for me!

Thanks again to the folks at Boulder Canyon for letting us try their awesome, albeit a little bit weird, potato chips, and getting us in the Thanksgiving spirit! I highly recommend that you guys try these out if you come across them in your local store! There are also cranberry and stuffing flavors too out there floating around, so if you see them, give them a shot and let me know how you liked those as well! Happy Chipping!

#HolidayGiftGuide: Fiskars Hatchet!




Okay guys, I know it's crazy to recommend a hatchet as a part of our Holiday Gift Guide, but, when have you ever known me to be normal?? We are really enjoying having the chance to check out some great products from our friends at Fiskars, and this hatchet is another great pick that they have to offer! 
As most of you know, we have been tackling the huge job of clearing out our fence line for the last few months. It has not been easy, but we are really making some progress. With the addition of the Fiskars Hatchet to our lineup, we have really been able to ramp up our working! This hatchet is a great all around tool, and it has been perfect for our needs! It's been great for pulling up roots, vines, small branches and more! The blade is curved, which helps with pull-cutting, so you can cut and remove the vine or root in one swoop! 





My guy especially loves that this hatchet allows for a one-handed grip. He says that this really helps to keep your other hand free to pick up or move branches, so that you are constantly being productive and not having to stop so much like you do when you use other tools that require two hands. The blades are rust resistant as well, which is a huge help. They are also coated with a protective coating that helps to cut through tough materials without sticking, such as branches or roots that contain sap. 

This hatchet also attaches to your belt, which is a great help for keeping your tools nearby and ready for action. The tool is actually designed to fit comfortably in your hand, and to help to prevent blisters. It's actually pretty cool to find a tool that is designed with this kind of technology in mind, to help prevent injuries and fatigue. 
This little hatchet is a great tool! We have used it to help get rid of several stumps and clear a ton of fence line, and it will be right here beside us the rest of the way as well! If you are looking for a small yard/garden tool to add to your collection, I'd say this hatchet is a great choice! It has really been helpful for us on our journey, and I'm happy that it is a small, portable tool, and not something super huge so it's easy for me to keep up with and lug around the yard! 

 As always, this was another great product from Fiskars that we were happy to check out and share with all of you! Make sure to follow Fiskars on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, and Youtube to stay updated with their latest products, tips and tools to help you with any job!

#HolidayGiftGuide: Sally Hansen Nail Colors (Perfect Stocking Stuffers!)




Today we have a perfect stocking stuffer to share with you guys! Sally Hansen nail colors are a wonderful stocking stuffer for any gal on your holiday list! There are a ton of different Sally Hansen products to choose from, and they are all amazing. I love this brand, because it shows that you are able to get a great look at a drugstore price. The fact that you do not have to sacrifice quality for price is wonderful to me! 

The Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure collection is an amazing all in one nail color, which includes a base coat, a nail strengthener, a growth treatment, and a top coat (plus more!) in one coat. It's an amazing deal and combines all the time consuming steps of an in home manicure into one easy step so you can get it over with and get on with looking great! The new season of colors is out now, and they are so amazing! Perfect for holiday parties and family fun! I love, love, LOVE this polish and I am so impressed with how well it works! It goes on smooth and has a long lasting color that can stand up to everything I throw at it!

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel nail color is definitely one of my faves! This nail color is a two part process, which helps you to easily achieve a salon quality at home gel manicure! Everyone knows that a gel manicure lasts longer than a typical manicure, and also has more shine and chip resistance. I love gel manicures, but the process is lengthy at the salon, not to mention the high cost. However, now with Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Color, you apply your base coat, then your top coat which is the gel coat, and then you are done! Using Sally Hansen Miracle Gel means that your manicure can last for up to 14 days, and what's not to love about that!? Check out Sally Hansen nail products at your local drugstores, and make sure to follow them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube for the latest products and the hottest new looks!
