Old Factory Candle Gift Set Review + Giveaway



About Old Factory Candles
Each gift pack comes with 3 fragrance-themed candles. Each of which burns clean for over 20 hours. The subtle jar design makes it the perfect complement for any decor, and any room of the house - kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, family room, great room, basement. We recommend burning one candle in a smaller room, or combining 2 candles in a larger room for the best effect. Made in the USA with natural soy wax and self-trimming cotton candle wicks.

My Experience
I chose the Fall Harvest gift set. This set includes Pumpkin Spice, Cranberry, and Autumn Leaves. They burn clean and I didn't notice any soot or smoke when I blew them out. The containers are subtle and can fit in with any decor. Pumpkin Spice reminded my husband of waffles. The Autumn Leaves scent made me think of a mans aftershave. They filled our rooms with just enough fragrance to be pleasant and not overpowering. These were a perfect compliment to our Thanksgiving celebration. 
They have eleven different gift sets, each one comes with three unique scents. These would make a great birthday, housewarming or hostess gift for the holidays. Overall I feel these candles made our home feel cozy.

Liquid Chalkers Review



About Liquid Chalkers

Liquid Chalkers contain artist quality, hyper pigmented ink that provides bright, beautiful colors with marker tips that don't dry out or crack. They were created by Louise Fox with her kids to help skyrocket their family's creativity. Liquid Chalkers are dust free when used on any non-porous surface. Some favorites are mirrors, glass, desks and metal. They should always ALWAYS test it first on a small inconspicuous section.


Our Experience
I love arts and crafts and anything that lets my kids be creative. I honestly spent an hour going around my house 'testing' these Liquid Chalkers on all different kids of surfaces. They work especially well on windows and mirrors.
We decorated our front window for Thanksgiving, and I plan on letting the boys decorate it again for each holiday. I also wrote notes on the bathroom mirrors and they work on our dry erase board as well. The clean up is wonderful, wiping it with a paper towel removed it. I do recommend using a cleaner after to get rid of any streaks.
I want to mention that they do have an odor. It's not offensive just strong. They are completely nontoxic so I don't worry. Also, we had a little accident with one of them because my son thought the cap was supposed to unscrew instead of pull off. Overall these are a lot of fun and will give myself and my kids a way to be creative.

Dot&Dot Small Packing Organizer Review



About Dot&Dot
Dot&Dot Travel provides high quality products that make travel easier. They offer a variety of travel accessories such as packing cubes, packing folders, toiletry kits, shoe bags and storage bags. The collection now includes products for babies and toddlers on the go.


My Experience
Do you find packing frustrating? Here is a great solution. The Dot&Dot Small Packing Organizer helps keep me organized. The pack of four is great for a weekend trip for one person or, for our family, an overnight stay at the coast. I love that it comes in ten different colors, my favorite is dark blue. So each person could have a different color to make it even easier to distinguish between them. I like that you can easily see through the mesh to identify what is inside. Each is large enough to hold a full outfit. I was able to fold two shirt, underclothes and a pair of pants into one. They also come with a durable plastic storage bag, making them easy to pack away when not in use. They are also well made, the seams are sturdy and the zippers slide easily. Overall these are great for organizing while traveling or can even be used as storage while at home. I would highly recommend these.

About Red Apple Reading Program

Our Experience
Both Mr. O and Mr. R are at the right age to use the Red Apple Reading Program. Mr. O (8) is in third grade and Mr. R (5) is in kindergarten. Mr. O enjoyed the program. The activities and games are fun. He's a fairly experienced reader and could handle a quicker pace. Mr. R or the other hand is still learning to read. It's helping him with sight words and phonics. They offer a free trial so you can see for yourself if the program is right for your child. Overall Mr. R is gaining the most from the Red Apple Reading Program.

More Like A Landfill Than A Living Room

We spent most of last month moving into my Grandmothers house. My mother tried to pack up as much of it as she could, but combing two households worth of stuff isn't easy. Not to mention that I a a complete pack rat. We spent the last ten years in an apartment and all the closets and cupboards were packed full. It even took us an extra day to move out because we didn't realizes how much we actually have. After everything was moved my oldest son commented, "This looks more like a landfill than a living room." Unfortunately his comment held a lot of truth. So I have tried to make many goals for myself to pare down how much we have as we unpack. If it isn't truly necessary or greatly loved it needs to find a new home. I hope to share some of the 'treasures' I find along the way.
Are you a minimalist or a pack rat? How do you deal with all your 'stuff'?
