GoldPeakCoffeeImageSince my son started school in September, I feel like life has become even busier! As I’m already a single working mom, to say life is hectic is an understatement. Ever have those days where you feel like you can’t “catch up” or accomplish that list of errands? That’s every day for this momma!

Luckily, thanks to Gold Peak Coffee, I’m able to have moments where I can stop, appreciate life, and enjoy time with my family. To me nothing is more relaxing than being with my loved ones, while sipping on my favorite beverage, enjoying the warmth it provides.

GoldPeakI was first introduced to this particular brand of coffee back when they were Georgia Coffee. They’ve since re-branded as Gold Peak Coffee and is now available in new various markets all across the United States. They’ve definitely expanded their availability, which is great for a coffee lover like me.

Fill Your Home with the Perfect Holiday Scents Thanks to #FebrezeHoliday!

FebrezeSignGrowing up holiday were always a huge deal in our household. I remember my mother cooking and baking delicious holiday goodies almost every day. Her Cranberry-Apple casserole was one of my favorites. In fact, even as an adult, I still request her to bake it for my son and I to enjoy on Christmas. I remember coming inside from sledding in the snow as a child and smelling the fresh brewed hot apple cider sitting on the stove stop, just waiting for us kids to enjoy it. What better way to warm up than with hot apple cider? Can’t beat that aroma!

Thinking of those memories, this is exactly why I was excited to learn that this year Febreze is offering an assortment of Holiday Scents to fill your home. The offering of festive aromas include Cranberry Cider, Glistening Pine, and Winter Frost.

CranberryCiderBrowsing through the available scents, I think it’s the Cranberry Cider that I’m most excited to try! The aroma reminded me of my mom’s casserole and the cider I would drink post-sledding. Those were two of my favorite winter holiday memories. Since I’m far from a culinary genius, and I’m pretty sure I’ve burnt the cider on the stove top several times, Febreze Holiday Scents is the perfect way to recreate those scents for my home.

Take Your Dishes to the Next Level of Clean with Cascade Platinum! ~ #MyPlatinum #spon

Summer is here which means one thing… summer parties!! Yes, I love entertaining and hosting summer shindigs at my home. One of the biggest elements of any party is the food and the presentation. I always want to make sure my serving platters are the cleanest they can be, as well as my bake ware and other dishes I use to cook and serve food to my guests! This is exactly why I was excited to test out the new Cascade Platinum Pacs.

These pacs can scrub away tough 24 hour stuck o food, and helps eliminate the need for pre-wash. Now I admit, I’m a pre-washer. I totally wash my dishes before sticking them in the dishwasher. I was nervous to put dirty dishes in my washer, but I knew it the was only way to really test out these Pacs! Helping Cascade achieve this powerful dishware shine is the grease fighting power of Dawn! That’s right… Dawn is included in each little pac to give the cleaning power even more of a boost.
