Spring Into Freshness With Air Wick



If you’ve read my blog for even a short amount of time you already know that I have a kid-friendly, pet-loving home.  Between three children, 2 dogs, 2 cats, and a husband, sometimes my house needs a little freshening up…especially my teenage son’s room.  I was super excited when I was offered the opportunity to work with Air Wick and try out a few products.


The Air Wick Freshmatic is a heaven send for my busy household.  I was really hopeful that the Freshmatic would keep my home smelling fresh all day, but that is a really big task.  To my surprise, it worked even better than I had hoped and my home has smelt AMAZING!  My living room and kitchen are open floor plan so I put the Freshmatic right where the two spaces come together.  The fragrance is powerful enough to work in both rooms with one conveniently placed sprayer.  Not only will the Freshmatic continuously neutralize odors in your home, it will do so for 60 days (if used on the minimum setting) with up to 2,400 sprays per refill.  Whether you hang it on the wall or place it on a cabinet or shelf, your home will smell fabulous all day long.

I had seen commercials for the Air Wick Pure spray and I was really interested in seeing how ‘less wet’ the spray was.  I had been using a different brand of air freshener and it had a light rain type mist that would come down when I used it so the bottle just sat in my bookshelf more often than not.   The Air Wick Pure promised to eliminate odors with 9x more fragrance and less wet residue than their traditional aerosol cans, so if they can deliver, I’m a converted fan.  Well guess what?  On my last trip to the store I picked up a few more cans for various rooms in the house because the Pure spray is fabulous!  The fragrance fills the room without being too overpowering and you don’t even feel the wet residue of the spray which is a fabulous thing.

Be sure to sing up for the Fragrant Homes Club from Air Wick…you’ll get lots of great home decor tips and tricks as well as coupons for fabulous Air Wick products.

Father’s Day Gifts Dad Will Love From RYOBI


Whether Dad is an at home DIY kind-of guy or uses power tools every day, they want tools they can count on again and again.  RYOBI’s 18V ONE+ system has more than 70 tools that work with the same powerful battery to give Dad the ultimate selection to get the job finished…no matter how big or small.  The RYOBI LITHIUM+ batteries help you get more done in less time for one system that delivers it all.  Finding the entire selection is easy…you can find RYOBI exclusively at the Home Depot, both in store and online.


The RYOBI ONE+ 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Super Combo Kit is the perfect gift for dad this Father’s Day!  The Super Combo Kit comes with 4 tools, 2 batteries, a battery charger, and a cool RYOBI bag to carry it all in.  This week my husband has been testing out his new Super Combo Kit and typical to RYOBI fashion, it absolutely surpassed expectations.

In the line of work that my husband does, he needs tools that he can rely on time and time again with no room for error.  It takes a lot to move a house (literally) and RYOBI is the only brand of tool my husband counts on to take the abuse he can throw at it, and then some.  Whether it’s splitting apart the manufactured homes, transporting them, setting them back up or running the utilities to them…RYOBI is there to help my husband and make his life just a little bit easier.


The RYOBI 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Compact Drill is perfect for all size jobs, big or small.  The pressure sensitive trigger reacts quickly allowing you to control the power for the perfect finish every time.

Compact Drill Features:

  • 1/2 in. single-sleeve, keyless chuck with automatic spindle lock for easy bit changes
  • 24 position clutch and 2-speed gear box to match your drilling and driving needs
  • MagTray magnetic holder for convenient placement of screws and bits
  • On-board bit storage for convenience
  • Top-mounted bubble level for drilling and driving accuracy
  • GripZone overmold for optimum grip and user comfort


The circular saw is another versatile tool that will help you complete whatever task you want it to.  Lightweight yet powerful for perfect results with perfect user comfort.

Circular Saw Features:

  • Compact design for better handling
  • Front pommel handle for 2-handed operation
  • Left side blade for better cut line visibility
  • 5 1/2 in. carbide-tipped blade for longer blade life
  • GripZone overmold for optimum grip and user comfort


RYOBI thought of everything when they made this reciprocating saw.  When it’s time to run the utilities to the homes he’s installed, my husband is using the reciprocating saw quite a bit.  The Anti-Vibe technology is genius in helping reduce fatigue with prolonged use.

Reciprocating Saw Features:

  • Toolless blade clamp for quick and easy blade changes
  • Ergonomically designed for better balance
  • Variable speed for cutting all material types


Whenever you’re in need of a dependable light source, RYOBI has got you covered there too.  The Area Light sure did come in handy this week!  I live in a very rural area, and there’s 5 miles of dirt roads (filled with rocks) between my home and the main highway.  Sometimes we’re just lucky enough (I say sarcastically) that a jagged bit of rock punctures our tires.  When my husband was getting ready to leave for work, bright and early before the sun is even up, he discovered we had been so lucky to encounter a jagged rock.  Thanks to the RYOBI Area Light, my husband was able to light the area to patch the tire and fill it with air to get to work safely.

Area Light Features:

  • Multi-functional design capable of sitting flat on the battery, one end, or hanging for ultimate lighting versatility
  • Rotating head directs light where needed

The RYOBI Super Combo Kit makes a great gift for any Dad, but make sure you check out all that RYOBI has to offer so you can find the gift that’s just right for all of the dads on your list this Father’s Day!

Chewy.com Goodies Your Pets Will Wag Their Tails For



It’s my pets favorite time of the month…when we get to try out new goodies from our friends at Chewy.com!  This month we chose Zignature canned dog food and Blue Buffalo cat treats, yum!


I’m sure you all know by now how much my cats LOVE treats.  Elsa smelled what I was taking pictures of and couldn’t wait to come try some out.  The Blue Buffalo Kitty Yums in Savory Seafood must’ve hit the spot because she fell in love pretty quickly.  These healthy treats will keep your kitty purring and waiting for more.  Blue Buffalo uses only the finest natural ingredients, so you can feel good about what you’re giving your feline friend.  Each recipe starts with real meat, and ends with tasty morsels that are packed with flavor.


  • Natural, soft-moist cat treats with added vitamins and minerals
  • Delicious tuna is the 1st ingredient with wholesome brown rice, oatmeal & fish oil
  • Only 2 calories per treat so you can feel good about indulging your feline friend
  • No chicken/poultry by-product meals, just real ingredients
  • Contains no corn, wheat or soy, so they’re great for cats with food allergies. No artificial preservatives, colors or flavors


Zignature Venison Limited Ingredient Grain-Free Dog Food was a HUGE hit with Venus.  She loves the flavor, I love the ingredients…you can even see whole peas!  Because venison contains a higher protein content than any other red meat, it’s an excellent meat choice that will leave your hungry dog feeling full and satisfied.  Venison is also rich in iron—even more so than typical beef—so it’s full of B vitamins and provides a lean fat content that’s great for helping immunity and improving cholesterol.


  • Limited-ingredient, low-glycemic premium recipe uses real venison as the number one ingredient.
  • Unique protein is hypoallergenic, making it great for dogs with allergies or sensitivities.
  • Lean fat content produces high levels of conjugate linoleic acid, a fatty acid with health benefits.
  • Rich in iron to boost energy, plus high levels of essential B vitamins for balanced nutrition.
  • Made in the USA with no grain, corn, wheat, soy, dairy, chicken, chicken eggs or chicken by-products.


Make sure your pets are happy, healthy, and well stocked on the best food/treats/accessories.  Check out all that Chewy.com has to offer…you’ll be sure to find a few things you and your furbuddy can’t wait to try.

A basket full of beauty goodies that every woman would love…what more could mom ask for this Mother’s Day?  Check out just a small selection of some of the goodies that Sephora has to offer:


Every woman needs a great set of makeup brushes, and Sephora has quite a few to offer.  The pink, Two Ways About It Brush Set  is a six-piece double-ended eye and face brush set with champagne gold molten metal textured handles stored in a vegan leather brush roll.

If you’re looking for individual brushes for specific purposes, Sephora has them too.   Isn’t that strawberry handled brush adorable?!


No cosmetic collection is complete without a great beauty sponge.  The Eggspert Mini Sponges are great for spot concealing, highlighting, and blending!  Toss them in a bag and you’re good to go!

The Wild Bunch Sponge Set is almost too cute for words.  They look like the cutest little strawberries ever.  Each one of these blending sponges is the perfect size and shape to buff and blend foundation, highlighter, and all other formulations into the skin—even into the smallest corners of the face.  The shape of the sponge allows for a natural ergonomic grip with your fingertips for maximum hold and control.


The Sephora Gel Mask Hydrating & Quenching is a great way to help rejuvenate your skin and achieve a more youthful appearance.  This gel mask works like an instant splash of water.  Skin is left quenched, looking more beautiful, and it feels refreshed, softer, and supple.

The Sephora Total Age Defy Cream For Eyes & Lips is a collagen booster your skin will thank you for using.  This cream recharges the skin reducing the signs of fatigue and leaving skin softer to the touch.  It’s effective yet gentle, so even those with sensitive skin like me can enjoy the benefits.


Every woman needs some great staple beauty items to rely on and Sephora has anything mom could possibly desire.  The Sephora Dynamic Duo Face Brush is a dual-ended face brush to cleanse your pores to perfection.  Now you can cleanse and refresh your complexion with this innovative tool, complete with a slip-proof grip.  The nylon bristles clear trapped oil and bacteria from pores and the domed silicone brush exfoliates and sloughs off dead skin cells.  The skin is left smooth and delightfully bright, and what woman doesn’t want that?  The Detoxifying Foam Cleanser is a great addition to the duo brush, so you can get your skin perfectly clear, bright, and beautiful.

The Daily Brush Cleaner is a great way to keep your brushes clean, and bacteria free.  This quick-drying cleaner is an alcohol-free brush cleaning spray that doesn’t require water.  The cleaner’s unique formula is infused with lemon, lime, grapefruit, and tea tree oils that help to clean brushes naturally while conditioning and protecting hairs.

Whether at home or on-the-go, mom can take her favorite beauty products with her using the Far & Away Silicone Travel Tube.   With a tapered, large-mouth design, it allows for easy product transfer to and from the tube. Effortless to clean, it is dishwasher safe and reusable.

The Beauty Amplifier Set And Refresh Spray is a multitasking blend of long-lasting, makeup-setting polymers and feel-good ingredients like lemon balm and peppermint extract…oh my!  Prime your makeup and perk up your skin in one simple step.  The fine mist is perfect because it won’t leave large droplets on your skin distorting the look of your makeup.


Sometimes, the small details can pull together a whole look…the possibilities with Sephora are endless!

Sephora’s Colorful Face collection is available in an extended range of shades, including colors made to contour, highlight, and add the perfect blush to your cheeks.  The ultra-sheer texture blends perfectly into the skin without caking, allowing for buildable intensity of color.  Designed to be worn alone or layered together for more depth, these blushes provide a healthy glow that flatters any skin tone.  With finishes ranging from matte to satin to shimmer, this collection allows you to customize an endless possibility of fresh-faced looks.

The intensely pigmented Outrageous Intense Waterproof Gel Eyeliner glides on smooth, and stays put for an all day look.  This gel eyeliner features a new formula for everyone who has struggled with dried out, flaky, or streaky traditional gel liners.  The formula boasts a gel’s easy glide but then sets quickly for waterproof wear that lasts.  With 25-percent pigmentation—among the highest on the beauty market—and a built-in primer for budge- and crease-proof wear, this liner makes a lasting impression without the mess.

The smoky-eye look is easier than ever thanks to the Sephora Easy Smoky Eye.  This all-in-one jumbo eyeshadow and brush combo provides everything you need to create an easy smoky eye.  The Easy Smoky Eye is a double-ended smoky shadow stick that makes creating a smoky eye effortless with two simple steps.

Sephora’s Long Lasting 12 Hour Wear Eye Liner is a collection of ultra-pigmented eyeliners to create strong, beautiful lines.  This bold range of extended wear eyeliners provides a blast of color that stays put for 12-hours.  Create looks like those by professional makeup artists with formulations that are packed with highly concentrated of pigments. T he brush’s flocked tip is incredibly easy to use, allowing you to draw a line of color that’s precise, consistent, and intense—all in a single step.

Whether you shop Sephora online or take mom to her local Sephora store, there’s no way you can go wrong this Mother’s Day.
