If you’ve followed my blog for even a short amount of time, you’ll probably be able to tell that I am absolutely obsessed with scented candles.  Not too long ago I introduced you all to Root Candles and I was absolutely thrilled when I got the chance to try out a couple new fragrances that are perfect for Mother’s Day!

Root Candles have been around since 1869 and have been an industry-leading, family-owned company ever since.  Root Candles is now in it’s 5th generation and continue to carry on the virtues of honesty, integrity, and diligent craftsmanship that founding father Amos Ives Root instilled in his company.  Each and every Root candle is carefully handcrafted using processes mastered throughout the five generations of craftsmanship combined with the latest technology available.

Every mom out there is seeking balance, and this Geranium Lavender candle from the Seeking Balance collection is the perfect thing to help mom unwind after a long day.  This candle has the power of color and fragrance in one holistic candle for a greater sense of health and well-being.  Joining the health and well-being trend with essential oil-based fragrances and wooden wicks, Root Candles’ Seeking Balance line combines the science of aromatherapy with color therapy, allowing the stresses of your day to fade away.

Root Candles’ Pinto Noir candle has a scent that’s too amazing to pass up.  This candle is clean-burning with a long lasting scent you just can’t get enough of.  Part of the Legacy collection, it features a natural cotton (lead free) wick and is fragranced with pure, essential oils that produce a rich, lasting sensory experience.  This scent is available in a wide variety of sizes so no matter what the room size, you’ll be sure to be able to fill it with luxurious fragrance.

RootRosePetals.jpg

Last but not least, the Rose Petals candle is another beautifully scented candle that mom will adore.  This light and floral candle has top notes of sweet apple, peach, and green leaf to compliment the rich, fresh cut herbal fragrance.  The all-natural beeswax blend burns longer than other premium candles and the addition of pure essential oils in each of the Root Candles fragrances produce a rich, lasting sensory experience.

Mother’s Day is the perfect time to spoil Mom with some kitchen gadgets that are too awesome to pass up.  I’ve found a few great kitchen must-haves that any mom would be happy to receive as a gift this year.

Knives.jpg

I am always on the hunt for a great knife set, and this Ginsu Chikara Series set is absolutely perfect!  Striking the proper balance between traditional knife-making methods and new age technology is what makes Ginsu Chikara knives so special.  Chikara forged cutlery exude their old world, Japanese crafters’ skill and precision in a timeless – albeit updated – style that utilizes the most efficient processes and materials.

The Ginsu Chikara series uses layer after layer of forged stainless steel to give each blade an unparalleled level of strength and sharpness that lasts and lasts. Such attention to the core of the blade means these pieces of elegant, forged Chikara cutlery should only be wash by hand. Properly forged handles give each blade the appropriate weight distribution and balance, which helps achieve a perfect cut each and every time. The perfect blend of old-world forgery and elegant, high-end technology, Ginsu Chikara knives and knife sets truly are the best of both worlds.

The Slim Safety LidLifter is the perfect replacement for your traditional can opener.  Its slim design fits in a picnic basket or backpack and is perfect for camping, boating or picnics. The revolutionary design makes opening cans clean, safe & fun. Lids are removed, leaving no mess or sharp edges. Safe, ergonomic and just plain cool.

Scrubber.jpg

Last but not least, the Stay Clean Scrubber.  This has been a heaven send for me and has replaced my nasty, germ filled sponge for good.  Over 5,000 silicone bristles clean dishes and multiple surfaces.  The Stay Clean Scrubber is cleaner than your typical sponge – non-porous silicone dries faster and won’t harbor bacteria. Better for the environment, this fun and flexible scrubber will stand the test of time. Collect them all!

  • No more smelly sponges!
  • Lasts longer than your typical sponge.
  • Use dry to remove lint and hair.

Get Your Home Sparkling Clean With The Shark Rotator Powered Lift Away Speed #Review

shark_logo.png

I pride myself on keeping a clean home which can be a challenge living in the dusty Arizona desert, AND having pets and children.  Shark has been a brand I know and love for years, so I was really eager to get my hands on the Shark Rotator Powered Lift Away Speed to see how well it worked in my busy household.

SharkRotatorCollage1.jpg

Right out of the box, you can see that it’s a very visually appealing product, true to Shark fashion.  I couldn’t wait to try out all of the different functions and ways to use one convenient machine.  The Shark Rotator Powered Lift Away Speed is 2 vacuums in 1 – upright and powered lift-away! It will never lose suction, has powered motorized brushes in all modes,  features hard floor cleaning with dust-away pro cleaner head, anti-allergen complete seal technology, fingertip controls, advanced swivel steering,  and LED lights on floor nozzle to illuminate work area.  It also comes with convenient onboard tools like the duster, crevice cleaner, and pet multi-tool.

SharkRotatorCollage2.jpg

The first function I wanted to try was the traditional vacuum.  Last year I spent a pretty penny on a vacuum that promised to pick up pet hair, so I was really eager to see how good of a job it was doing.  I decided to put my ‘old’ vacuum to the test.  I vacuumed the living room as I normally would, then again with the Shark Rotator.

SharkRotatorCollage3.jpg

You can see that it left my carpet really clean!  BUT…here’s what I wasn’t prepared for:

SharkRotatorCollage4.jpg

THIS heap of nastiness is what came up off of my living room floor with the Shark Rotator IMMEDIATELY after using my vacuum I spent an arm and a leg on.  That vacuum I bought last year that promised to pick up pet hair obviously was not doing it’s job.  GROSS!!

SharkRotatorCollage5.jpg

Next I could not wait to see how well the hardwood floor attachment worked.  I decided to again see how well my house was being cleaned before…I mean…it LOOKED clean, that’s for sure.  I swept my floor as I usually do with my broom and dustpan, then went over it again with the Shark Rotator.

SharkRotatorCollage6.jpg

Again, my floor was left looking really clean, and you guessed it, it pulled up a pile of filth that I had no idea was being left behind!

SharkRotatorCollage7.jpg

You can see that even after sweeping my floor, the Shark Rotator still managed to find SO MUCH NASTINESS hidden lurking on my floors.  (The penny is for size reference 🙂 )

SharkRotatorCollage8.jpg

The hand attachments also come in really handy.  My toddler likes to eat messy sometimes, and the couch gathers so many crumbs.

SharkRotatorCollage9.jpg

You can see that those pesky Pop Tart crumbs were nothing for the Shark Rotator, and my couch was left looking so much cleaner, and best of all, CRUMB FREE!

Day after day I keep finding new ways to use the Shark Rotator in my home.  I feel really great knowing that my home is actually clean, and my children have the best living environment that they can have.  The Shark Rotator never ceases to amaze me, and I know you’ll feel the same way as soon as you try one for yourself.

See How Jabra Changed The Ear Bud Game With The Sport Pulse #Review

jabra_logo_yellow.jpg

The next generation in ear bud technology is here. Jabra has introduced the Sport Pulse ear buds and they are fabulous!

JabraCollage.jpg

My husband and I have tried many brands and styles of ear bud to no avail. We were never able to find something (no matter what price range) that ended up lasting more than just a week. Between my fitness training and my husbands demanding, hard job we’ve gone through a small fortune in ear buds.  I was really eager to see how well the Jabra Sport Pulse performed, so I let my husband try them out since he would put them through much more abuse than me.

Jabra.jpg

My husband literally moves houses for a living. This involves him being under houses all day long, and if that weren’t enough, we live in Arizona. It’s hot, sweaty, dusty, dirty, and downright miserable. Listening to music while he’s working helps his day pass much smoother but so far nothing has worked for him. Jabra Sport Pulse ear buds are built towards US Military rain, shock, sand, and dust standards so I figured if anything would withstand my hubbys abuse, these would.

His first day using the Jabra Sport Pulse ear buds he came home in a great mood. He was able to listen to his favorite music all day long and was able to leave his phone in the truck so he didn’t have one extra thing in his way. Two weeks later and these things are STILL holding true to their promise to perform.

A really nice feature is also the ability to monitor your heart rate and analyze your physical activity. The Jabra Sport Life app is easy to install and use, making the whole experience very pleasant. You can even plan your workout right from the app!

Jabra really thought of everything when designing the Sport Pulse ear buds and leaves nothing to be desired. Now…I just need to get a pair for myself so I don’t regret letting my husband have them.  (You can also purchase a pair for yourself here.)
