Keep Your Home Organized In Style with the Songmics 3-Tier Storage Cube Organizer #Review #Giveaway

logo-big-small

 

I have been on an organization kick for quite some time now, and no room in the house drove me as nuts as my daughter’s bedroom.  There’s TONS of toys, clothes, shoes, journals, notebooks, pens and pencils that didn’t really have anywhere to go because she had so much stuff in such a small space.  After falling in love with the Songmics shoe organizer, I decided to see what other storage and organization issues they could help me tackle.

The Songmics 3-Tier Storage Cube Organizer was absolutely the perfect fit for my daughter’s bedroom, and exactly what I had been looking for!  Even though I’m not a handy person, this was easy to assemble and I was ready to use it in almost no time at all.  Everything you need to put this storage cube together is included in the box, so there’s no need to dig out any extra tools or hardware, how cool is that?

Songmics2.jpg

This organization cube will help you keep your home neat, tidy and organized, and offer ultimate convenient for your household organization.  Talk about versatile!  This organizer can be used for storing all sorts of items, and there is SO much more room inside this organizer than you would think.  I managed to clean up all the random junk in my daughter’s room and STILL had extra space to put more.  The ABS connectors and PP panels allow you assemble the storage units into different style according to your needs which is perfect for a household that likes to change things up now and then like mine.  The rust-proof iron frame makes your storage unit extra durable and ready to take on the mess of any room in the house.  I wish the 10 lb load per cube was a little higher, but I stored the heaviest items in the bottom cubes and haven’t had any issues with bowing, cracking, tearing, or breaking which makes this quite possibly one of my favorite items I’ve ever received as a blogger.  

Don’t just take my word for it, one of you lucky readers will have a chance to win a Songmics storage cube of your own!

FiveStarLogo

Back To School shopping can be hectic…there are so many different brands it’s hard to know what’s going to be the most durable, and give you the best value for your money.  Five Star makes back to school shopping a little bit easier with their durable and innovate products, so no matter what age group you’re shopping for, you’re bound to find some great supplies that you and your kids just can’t live without.

FiveStarBackpack.jpg

It’s no secret that Five Star Backpacks are some of the best backpacks around.  They are durable enough to handle young kids, while still being able to stay age appropriate for the older kids as well.  We fell in love with the Five Star Expandable Backpack last year and were pleased to see the same durable, functional design available again this year.  This backpack is (still) by far the coolest backpack I think I’ve ever seen.  It has multiple expanding sections that open like luggage to give you extra storage space up to 7″.  The main compartment has a zipper that runs down the length of the side so you can easily get what you need from your backpack if it’s hanging in your locker.

Five Star Expandable Backpack Features:

  • Ergonomic straps distribute the weight of the backpack to make it easy to comfortably carry a heavy load. Loop on the top to hang backpack in locker
  • Expandable – the main compartment of the backpack expands for up to 4″ of extra storage space for textbooks, zipper binders and more

Keep Your Shoes Organized This Back To School Season With Songmics #Review #Giveaway

 

logo-big-small.png

Back To School is always a CRAZY time of year in my household and it usually means heaps of shoes thrown all over the floor without care (thanks kids!).  With my kids headed back to school next week I was on a mission to find a way to keep shoes nice, neat, and organized.  Songmics to the rescue!

ShoeBench.jpg

Isn’t the Songmics 2-Tier Shoe Organizing Rack natural bamboo beautiful?  Not only is it beautiful, it’s 100% natural bamboo so it’s environment friendly and sturdy.  The 2 tiers are perfect for users of all sizes.  Whether my 5 year old or 14 year old needs to sit down and put their shoes on for school, there’s a perfect height bench seat just for them.  The finish is natural and smooth with rounded corners to protect against scratching little ones…a MUST in this household!

ShoeBench2.jpg

FINALLY, a place to keep my boots!  The larger section is perfect for boots while the other shelves are perfect for holding all of your shoes, no matter what type.  We don’t have the largest house so I really love the compact, space saving design.  I don’t have much room to spare but this shoe bench fit in absolutely perfectly and looks great!  You’ll need to assemble it once it arrives, but don’t let that scare you.  I am NOT the most handy person, and I didn’t want to wait for my husband to get home from work to assemble it so I   figured I’d see if I could manage to pull it off.  The instructions are very clear, step by step, and even include pictures to guide you along the way.  All of the hardware and tools you’ll need are included in the box so no need to purchase anything else to assemble.  In about 15 minutes the whole bench was put together and is quite sturdy.

Happy Father’s Day From Lugz #Review #Giveaway

lugz_hireslogo_new

With Father’s Day just around the corner, I can’t think of a better gift to give Dad than a fresh pair of kicks.  Dad’s always seem to put themselves last and their shoe game is ‘lacking’ to put it politely.  Lugz has lots of new arrivals with tons of styles for every man, so no matter what dad’s style is, you can find the pair that are just right for him.  I’m sure you all know by now how much I love Lugz, so it should come as no surprise I’ve chosen a fashionable pair of their sneakers for my husband to sport around town.

LugzCollage.jpg

The Strife sneaker is all new from Lugz and it has quickly become one of my favorite men’s styles they offer.  These sneakers may be casual, but they sure do take an outfit from good to great in a matter of a few seconds.  You’ll be noticed in these Lugz and everyone will want to know where you got them.

True to Lugz fashion, my husband says these sneakers in incredibly comfortable.  He’s on his feet all day in steel-toe work boots so when it’s time to go out, he doesn’t want to wear uncomfortable shoes.  Lugz always have a comfortable fit which is great to be able to rely on.  The padded tongue and collar allow for extra comfort while the cotton lining offers extra softness for tired feet.

PRODUCT DETAILS:

  • Ripstop canvas upper
  • Cotton drill lining
  • Padded tongue and collar
  • Pull loop for easy on

If you’re not a huge fan of red, these Strife sneakers are also available in a couple different colors so you can compliment your style individually.

Take Your Sneaker Game To A Whole New Level With Lugz

lugz_hireslogo_new

It should come as no surprise to you guys by now that I just LOVE Lugz!  I got to try out the new Lugz Seabrook sneakers and just like every other Lugz shoe I’ve worn, they are fabulous!

LugzSeabrook.jpg

These have got to be some of the cutest sneakers I’ve ever owned.  I love how the black/white/fuchsia combine together for a classic look while offering a pop of color that say “look at me, notice me, adore me”.  I was curious how these shoes would work out for me, I have high arches in my feet and these looked a little flat (although incredibly adorable).  I don’t know if I’m a genius or just plain crazy, but I figured what better day to try them out than a day I’ll be on my feet, A LOT!  If you’re a frequent reader of mine, you’ll know that I live SUPER far from the closest town (including grocery store, doctors, post office, anything really…it’s 25 miles from my house one way) so when I go into town, I make a day of it.

LugzSeabrook2.jpg

Tuesday of this week was sink or swim for me and my new Lugz.  After going to 4 different grocery stores and coming home, I realized I had forgotten some much needed things and my stop at the bank.  BACK into town I went to finish my forgotten errands, all while scrambling to make it to my daughter’s kindergarten registration on time that evening.  I left my house at 8:30 am and wasn’t home until almost 6 that evening.  I have to tell you guys, I am SO incredibly thankful I decided to try out my Seabrook sneakers that day.  My feet felt better than ever, even after all they had been through!  The shoes were supportive enough that my arches didn’t ache, my toes didn’t hurt, and best of all, my back didn’t even hurt…what a world of difference a great supportive shoe can make!  I promise you guys, once you try these Seabrook sneakers, you’ll want a pair in every color.

PRODUCT DETAILS:

  • Canvas upper
  • Cotton drill lining
  • Waxy finish laces
  • Metal eyelets & classic Lugz hardware
  • Durable rubber outsole

These sneakers are available in 7 different colors, and would make the perfect gift for any mom this Mother’s Day!

***GIVEAWAY***

Lugz has been generous enough to sponsor a giveaway!  One lucky winner will receive a pair of Lugz Seabrook sneakers in your choice of color and size!  Giveaway will begin 05/04/17 at 10:30 am EST and will end 05/11/17 10:30 am EST.  Winner will have 48 hours to claim their prize or another winner will be chosen.  All giveaway entries will be validated.  Winners are randomly selected.  Click the link below to enter:
