Jord Wood Watches Review and Giveaway!

I’ve always been a fan of fun accessories and jewelry, and my fall and winter wardrobes include both to add a little extra something to the neutrals and layers that I wear so often when the weather turns colder. Scarves, bracelets, earrings and watches especially make me feel pulled together and add some color or sparkle to all of my gray and black clothing. I was recently contacted to try a brand of watches that I was not so familiar with but are beautiful and unique, and I’m really excited to be able to give one of you a chance to win your own.

Jord Wood Watches are gorgeous, high quality, stylish watches made out of (you guessed it) wood! I have the Fieldcrest watch in black, and not only does it go with everything in my wardrobe, but it’s fun, very lightweight, and has just enough flash to dress up or down.

I like to stack bracelets and watches, especially in the colder months when I’m all covered up in layers, and this one goes perfectly with my simple and more elaborate bangles and cuffs.

I used the Fieldcrest watch to dress up my “last day of holiday travel” ensemble (skinny jeans, black booties, a long sleeve black t-shirt and a scarf thrown on to add a pop of color), and I think the super cute accessories take some of the attention off of the second-day hair and lack of sleep look I was sporting.

I added the watch and bracelets to an already-dressed-up look, too, with a sheer black and white top, a pair of teal boyfriend trousers and the same black booties.

Smile Brilliant LED Teeth Whitening System Review and #Giveaway

I’m always wishing my teeth were whiter (I mean, who doesn’t unless you spend a load of money on professional whitening regularly?). The drugstore strips and polishes always work okay, but they’re kind of a hassle and nothing compared to getting a (pricey) kit from the dentist.

I was excited to try the Smile Brilliant LED Teeth Whitening kit, because it comes with an LED light, just like the dentists use, to accelerate the whitening process and bring it up a notch.

Smile Brilliant LED Teeth Whitening giveaway and review

The instructions say that you should see the maximum whitening/stain removing in 5-7 days. (It will not change the color of your teeth but it will remove stains that have accumulated from coffee drinking, wine, aging, etc). I used it for the full seven days, and I do feel like my teeth are quite a bit brighter. It’s hard to tell exactly how much whiter they are (without those handy shade guides the dentists use) but I am really happy with the way my smile looks after using the system.

You only need to shine the LED light on your teeth (that you’ve put the whitening gel on) for 20-45 minutes, and if you want, you can keep the teeth protectors and gel on for several additional hours. I never did that…I rinsed the gel off and brushed my teeth as soon as the LED time was up, because I started to get that extra saliva in my mouth and I wanted to spit it out.

I did all of the applications in the evening after the kids went to bed. You’re supposed to brush the gel on your teeth with the pen (I just did my front few teeth, the ones you can see when I smile), put the plastic protector over the teeth and under the lips, then turn on the LED light and stick that under your lips over the protector.

The first night, I held the light in my mouth with my hand for 20 minutes and after that, I was ready to take it out. By the third night, I was able to stick it under my lips and walk around wthout using my hands to hold it in, making lunches and getting ready for the next day without it bothering me a bit. And most of those subsequent days, I left it in for the full 45 minutes.

The whole system actually is pretty easy to use. Like I said, it took a day or so to get used to having the light plus the gel in my mouth, but after that, I hardly noticed it (and I’m not exagerrating when I say I’ve always had a pretty bad gag reflex).

Compared to even just a teeth cleaning at the dentist (let alone a professional whitening kit), the price of the system is really reasonable. I didn’t even use an entire gel pen for the week, though the instructions say that you’ll need more.

The only thing difficult about the system was that the LED light was sometimes a little hard to turn off. But, with some hard pressing on the button, it always shut off after I few tries. Nothing I couldn’t deal with.

Accessorize and keep your dog safe with dogIDs


Accessorize and keep your dog safe with dogIDs.  A small family-owned business, dogIDs has delivered unique, personalized, top-quality pet products for nearly 15 years. 


For our dog Grader we chose a Personalized English Bridle Leather Dog Collar with Nameplate & an English Bridle Leather Leash, both in London Tan. The stitching and hardware are excellent quality and the English Bridle Leather is incredibly durable and flexible. image2

Previously, ID tags I had ordered from different places seemed to wear out within months.  With engraved nameplates on both the collar and leash, they aren’t rubbing on his fur so the letters aren’t wearing off. 

Last year my husband and I rescued Grader from a shelter.  He had been found running in the woods.  With injuries and poor health he almost did not survive.  Since he is a runner we take precautions and make sure that if he does take off, he can be identified and returned home.  So most importantly I like how the letters on the nameplates are clearly visible and were made to our personal specifications. 


Along with collars, ID tags and leashes has several accessories to choose from for your furry friend including beds, bowls and more.

A Prize in Every Candle


An amazing smelling and burning candle is what most people want when they spend money on candles, but when you get that, and a prize to boot then that means you have one heck of a product on your hands.

Prize Candles are all of the above.

Being a candle maker myself I am very picky about how a candle burns, the scent throw, and the type of wax it is made out of.  Well, I have to say on a scale of 1-10, 10 being the best I give these candles an 8.  The only reason I didn’t give them a full 10 is because the only part I am not fully sold on is the prize. All the candles have rings in them, and the rings are supposed to be worth anywhere from $10 and up.  Well, once you retrieve the ring from the candle you go to the website and input your code that you find with the ring and then you find out what the ring is worth.

So, the first ring I dug out was only valued at $10 according to the website appraisal page.
It was a cute ring, but the picture is fuzzy. This candle is the Orange Blossom.

So,  even though I was not impressed with the ring, the candle burned good and smelled good and that is more what I care about.

So, onto candle number 2.  This was a French Brulee, and smelled so good!!  Here is the ring from this candle.  It is not my taste at all in rings, and according to the site it is valued at $100.   Well, I find that very hard to believe because I couldn’t get $1 for it at a garage sale. So, I am not sure how they figure out what the rings are worth.   To me, both rings looked the same, like costume jewelery.


Just because I don’t really get the whole “jewelery in a candle” concept doesn’t mean others don’t. Non the less, it is a great candle so if you like to find fun goodies in your candles I do recommend them.

Or, you can enter my giveaway and win yourself one.

Green Your Cleaning Routine with Unique


Green Your Cleaning Routine with Unique.

Unique manufactures natural products that clean organic waste safely, effectively with affordability.  Organic waste is anything that is biodegradable, nearly all the stains, messes and odors in your home are from organic waste.  From carpets to septic, Unique uses natural bacterias to break down and remove the organic waste.

When it comes to cleaning, I am a freak.  With a husband always covered in grease, a high energy dog and pot-belly pig that likes to root around the yard then come inside the house and roll around, I am ALWAYS cleaning!  Unique has the power to take care of our messes and is safe for our pets which takes the weight off my shoulders, and the piece of mind that I am not fighting pollution with more pollution.

I love the Pet Odor & Stain Eliminator because I can apply it and let it do its magic, saving me time and energy.  For stains on our carpet, at night I saturate the stain and toss a rag over it.  In the morning I remove the rag and let the carpet dry.  Letting the cleaner sit overnight saves me all the trouble of being on my knees scrubbing.

Unique Complete, Stain & Odor Remover is the cleaner I use throughout our home.  Kennel, litter box, car, bathroom, basically floor to ceiling.  It is a concentrated product, which means you mix it 10 to 1.  So a 1 Quart container will make 2.5 gallons of cleaning product!

The Super Digest It is a life saver!   I use this in my kitchen drain, and in my shower.  Between food, grease, dog hair, human hair, etc., a drain should not be without it.

Unique also carries a 100% Refund if you aren’t completely satisfied!
