Adorable Easter Gift for All ages!

This plush Easter basket with plush animals inside is so cute! My daughter loves it! This jumbo plush Easter basket comes with a cute plush Easter bunny, plush Easter chick, and a cute not so little hatching Easter chick. All this items are very, very soft and cuddly!  The basket is labeled EASTER BASKET. Chick is labeled EASTER CHICK. And bunny is label EASTER BUNNY. These are very well made and durable. They have survived my daughter's roughness.
My daughter raves about how cute they are. This Easter set would be great for any age. I would consider this set gender neutral as colors are Easter colors.
The Easter bunny ears do have wire in them so they are bendable.

Overall I am impressed with this set and recommend to others.

A kitchen must have!

This extra large cutting board by 1Easylife is great. I love that it is made out of bamboo so it is organic. This extra large organic cutting board is 18inX12in. It is now my largest cutting board. Even though it is large, storing is not that bad as it has a hook so you can hang it on the wall. It is also lightweight especially for its size.
The care directions are like most wooden cutting boards. 

You have to wash it and oil it before first use. I used coconut oil on mine. I had to oil it 3 times to my liking. The oil keeps it from drying out which can damage the board. This cutting board has a nice smooth finish, but if it gets too dry, it can cause it to crack and splinter so be sure to oil regularly.  Also this is hand wash only. 

I love the size of this cutting board. I have many small ones but they are not big enough for large jobs. It came in handy for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner prep! This cutting board does have a drip groove to help contain messes. It also has a Trapezoidal-Edge design so picking up and moving around is easy. It does have a rounded hangerso it can be hung it up when not in use to save on cabinet/counter space. This large cutting board is very nice and durable. I can see it lasting me a long time.  Overall this is a great extra large cutting board that I would recommend.

Fun Christmas Ornaments that double as gifts!

*I received this product at a discount for reviewing purposes. Even though I received it at a discount it does not affect my review. These are my opinions. Your results may vary. *POST CONTAINS AFFILIATE LINKS*

These building brick block ornaments are very similar to LEGOS. You get 6 ornaments filled with 6 different vehicle building sets containing 1 minifugure, and building instructions for each. Each set has anywhere from approx 50-70  pieces.

My box of building brick ornaments included the following sets:
*Police car
*Police Helicopter
*Race car
*Fire Truck
*Rescue Fire truck

Each one is nicely decorated with a bow so they look nice on a Christmas tree. I received 3 with a green bow and 3 with a red bow.

I really like how each one is clearly labeled on the tag which set is inside.

The instructions are pretty easy to understand and the blocks easy to assemble and like most building blocks can be difficult to take apart. 

Overall I'm impressed with these building brick Christmas ornaments. Right now they are $17.99 on Amazon for the box of 6 at about $3 each I feel they are definitely worth it. These would make a great Christmas gift for kids, stuffing stuffers, or even used in some Elf on The Shelf ideas.
I would like to note these are taped together but might need to add extra to keep them together better. Also the ornaments would be great to recycle into more ornaments next year or even a mold to make giant bath bombs.

Levoit Elora Natural Himalayan Crystal Salt Lamp: Stainless Steel Base, Touch Brightness Dimmable Control Review and Giveaway

*This blog post is sponsored. I received a sample of the product to test. Even though I received a sample, this does not effect my review. This blog post contains affiliate links.

I have been testing this Levoit Elora Natural Himalayan Crystal Salt Lamp: Stainless Steel Base, Touch Brightness Dimmable Control for over a week and I love it. I received this salt lamp from  Levoit Elora to test and give one away! For giveaway info scroll to bottom of page.

First, it came beautifully packaged in a red holographic box with easy to carry ribbon handles. Most salt lamps I have received come in standard packaging. This one would be great to give as a gift as is.


It is also packaged with Styrofoam on top for protection and an easy to open plastic bag.

This salt lamp is very pretty on or off. It has a 6.5 FT cord. It also comes with an extra bulb. The dimmable switch is touch controlled. The touch control can take a couple of times to get used to. The lamp puts off a soft glow that makes a perfect night light. This does get a little warm but salt lamps do. It will also sweat some so its recommended to put a place mat under it. The stainless steel base is nice and different.  This lamp is easy to clean. Just take a damp cloth and gentle wipe. 

I personally love to sit and watch this lamp. I find it very relaxing to look at.

Himalayan Crystal Salt Lamps have great benefits:
*They are natural air purifiers
*They are said to help with allergies, asthma and breathing.
*Boost blood flow
*Increase energy
*Helps with better sleep
*Reduces stress and anxiety
*NOTE: these are just claims in general that I have read and found.

Overall this is a very nice Himalayan Crystal Salt Lamp that I recommend to anyone looking for one. Its very pretty and durable. I can see it lasting a long time. You can find it HERE on Amazon.

Our House has launched a new line of gluten free mixes. There are 7 in all: All purpose flour, all purpose baking mix, chocolate brownie mix, cookie mix, cornbread mix, bread mix, and pancake & waffle mix. These mixes are sold in stores or online at Our House website. The stores these mixes are sold in are Food Lion, Harris Teeter, Lowes Foods, and Ingles.  If you would like to see where they are being sold near you, you can go to there product locator by clicking HERE. Not only are these mixes gluten free, but are vegan, kosher, and non GMO too.

I was sent the cookie mix and cornbread mix to try. Check out the recipes I used on down.  I have to say I was surprised. I couldn't tell a difference really in taste or texture compared to non gluten free and neither could my husband or daughter. To be honest I was expecting them to taste different or be gross since I've not ate gluten-free bread products before these. The mixes were really easy to use like most mixes are. I love the packaging. The boxes have an easy tear top. Each box comes with 2 different recipes that you can cut out and are easy to make. The boxes also include a kitchen tip and a Gluten-Free label that you can cut out.

The cornbread mix makes a sweet cornbread. One box of mix made 24 mini and 8 full size muffins. I used the recipe on the back of the box.

  • 1 box Our House Gluten-Free Cornbread Mix
  • 1 ½ cups of milk (or milk alternative)
  • 2/3 cup of oil
  • 3 large eggs (or egg replacer or 1 cup of applesauce)

    1. Preheat oven to 400F.
    2. Grease a 9” square baking pan, muffin pan, or mini muffin pan. Be sure to grease pan good or they might stick. 

    1. 3. Add milk, oil, and eggs to cornbread mix; mix until smooth.
    1. 4. Pour batter into pan and bake 30-45 min, until done and golden brown for 9" square.  About 20 minutes for regular size muffins. About 10 minutes for mini muffins.
    Will make 16 squares in 9" pan, 24 regular muffins, or 48 mini muffins.
    **OPTIONAL: Add in 1 can of jalapeƱos and 1 can of whole kernel corn, drained, for a southwestern spin.

Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookies

    1. Preheat oven to 350F.

    1. 2. Drop rounded tablespoons of dough 2 inches apart onto lightly greased baking sheet.
    1. 3. Flatten each with a fork in a crisscross pattern.

I have to say I'm very impressed with this music bulb by VICTORSTAR. This is the first one I have had so I really didnt know what to expect. This fits standard light sockets. This light bulb makes for a great regular bulb. It is bright and dimmable. It comes with a remote that is easy to use with a battery already in it so no need to buy one. The remote has 24 different functions. The light can be turned on and off with the remote. The light can be changed to different colors ranging from red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, and pink. It also has flash, fade, smooth, and strobe functions. The light does not get very hot either which is always a plus. The speaker is Bluetooth and easy to connect. It is listed as Speak Light L2. It is loud and a great speaker. It has a great range and even through walls. I honestly walked all through my house with it in the back room and it never cut out. The speaker can work without the light on too. Overall this is a great fun light bulb that I highly recommend.

Eco friendly Silicone Mat REVIEW

                               Eco friendly Silicone Mat REVIEW

These silicone mat cutting boards are AWESOME! If your like me you are using a cutting board daily and most of the time is for small jobs and you don't want to drag the big one out. This is were these come in. They are thin, light weight, and great for small jobs. They come in a pack of 4 and each one is a different color and have a different food label. The labels are really handy because you can keep up what you use them for with them. Plus it keeps my husband from using my veggie or fruit board for meats.

They are very thin so easy to store and even have a cutout so they can be hung up. They have a cutting guide on them which is always great to have on a cutting board. These are flexible too.

These are very durable and easy to clean. I do however recommend not to use anything abrasive on them as I don't know how well the writing will last if you do. Overall these are great and I highly recommend these.
