PetFusion Cat Scratcher Lounge Review

PetFusion Cat Scratcher Lounge Review

The cat lounger scratcher is amazing. I’m so happy that I was giving a chance to review it. We first got it back in July, right when we adopted our first kitten Albie. We wanted to get this for him as we decided not to declaw him. Growing up, my parents always had our cats declawed, but my husband, who is from England, it is actually illegal to declaw cats over there. After reading more on it, I realized it wasn’t what I had always thought it was, just taking a nail out. But more in fact they compare it to if you removed our last finger joint. So I could never do that to my little guy. At first Albie only used it as a lounger. When he was real small he could fit in and lay down in the bit inside, but now he’s much to big for that. For him, this is now just a place to sharpen his nails. But our other cat Ted, just LOVES this. He not only uses it as a scratcher but it is his favorite place to sit and sleep. A bit weird I think given we have so many comfy couches, chairs and beds for him to lay on, but, he always chooses to lay and sleep on the scratcher.
The price point for these is higher than I’d normally spend on something for my cats, but after getting to review it, I see why. It’s very durable and well-built and the cats just love it, and use it everyday, so that makes it worth it.
So are you looking for something to get your cats for Christmas? Get this and wrap a bow on it, they’ll love you for it!

Sheex Review & Giveaway

I was lucky enough to be able to test out some Sheex King Size pillowcases.  I first got introduced to Sheex back in August when I attended BlogHer in New York City. I got a sample pack of their sheets and also got 2 travel size pillows with their performance sheets pillow cases on it.

I just LOVE the feel of these.  They are by far the softest material I have ever felt.  What is great for our household is the moisture transport part.  My husband can get sweaty at night so this feature is great for us! I personally love that they are very light and breathable.

Droid Razr M Review

Droid Razr M Review

At the end of September  was sent the Droid Razr M phone from Verizon to review.  The second device that I get to test from being in the Verizon Wireless Savvy Savers blogging program.  As you may know, my first device was the Droid Xyboard 10.1 tablet, and while I absolutely love it, I love this phone just as much.  Besides being a phone, it is so much more.  I actually think of it as a mini tablet.  It does everything that my tablet does, but just in a much smaller package.  All of my apps I have on my tablet through the google play store are also on my phone.  The only difference is in the amount of space between the two.  My tablet has 32gb and the phone has just 8gb.  Though you can add extra memory, so that is nice.  Another great feature about this phone is the battery is so long.  I’ve gone 2 days without having to charge it.  I can’t say I’ve had any other phone that has that good of a battery life.  I know Motorola prides themselves on their long battery life.  My day-to-day phone in which I pay for is a Blackberry Curve, I like Blackberry because of the keyboard.  I really have a hard time with touch screens, but the battery life is so short.  For sure by the end of the day, I have to charge the phone up.  Another great part about this phone is their price.  You can get this for just $99!  Now that is a great deal.  I highly suggest if you are looking for a new smart phone, look no further than the Droid Razr M.

How Verizon Helped Me Move

I’m so happy to still be in the Verizon Wireless Midwest Savvy Savers program. With this besides the awesome tablet I’m using, I have unlimited 4G LTE coverage. I’ve been in the process of moving over the past month and this service has saved me. I’ve been able to stay connected during the moving process without switching my internet provider over. I finally did last week but I could have waited if I wanted to because my tablet allows me to create a hotspot and my husband and I can both use it to go online with our laptops.

Another reason why Verizon is so amazing… have got to try their 4G LTE!

Revlon Expressions

Make up is the tool in which we women can express ourselves.  I just love matching my eye make up to my outfits or my nails to my hand bag.  Lots of choices always for us to doll ourselves up.  I’ve been in love with using make up for a long time and I have to say Revlon is one of my go to brands.

One of my favorite products they make is their Colorstay Nail Polish!  Check out me wearing the new Sorbet color!  It is a perfect summer color, and I’m just loving it. Besides the color I just LOVE the polish brush that is in this bottle.  It is nice and fat, bigger than most others I’ve used and I find that it gives much better coverage and quicker!  It also dries fast, and I mean real fast, which is another huge plus for me as the part I hate most after doing my nails is the extended time where I have to sit still and wait for them to dry, which usually is I’d say a good hour.  This product, I was doing stuff just 15 minutes later!  With no nicks or scrapes! Yay!

Besides the fact that make up is an empowering tool that allows us to express ourselves, Revlon also makes it affordable for everyone.  Not everyone can afford to go to department stores and buy high end make up, but Revlon delivers the quality product at and affordable price!  So it is a win, win!

Go out today and see what new color or product you will fall in love with!  I know mine right now is the Revlon Colorstay nail polish in Sorbet!

Verizon Wireless Hopeline

I feel so lucky to be working with Verizon Wireless.  Since May I have been part of their Savvy Savers blogging program and this past weekend while in New York City for BlogHer, I had a chance to catch up with them at a luncheon they hosted to me and a room full of other bloggers.  Verizon knows how to put on an event and we had a nice lunch followed by a great dessert.  The purpose of Verizon meeting with all of us was not to push a new phone or a plan for consumers to buy, but it was a call to action.  They presented us all with very compelling information on domestic violence and how they are trying to help.  Verizon really does care! To show they care they work with the Joyful Heart Foundation.  Do you have old phones that are not getting used?  Send them to Verizon so that they can help survivors of domestic violence! Use the link below to find out how to donate your old phone and to get a prepaid shipping label.
