{Lotus Home Cleaning System}+Giveaway

I am always looking for ways to make my home "greener" and avoid using harsh chemicals. The Lotus Home Cleaning System decontaminates food and sanitizes surfaces without any chemicals. When I heard about the Lotus Home Cleaning System, I was immediately interested, but I'll admit I had doubts - cleaning with water? But its actually very cool. It even made Time magazine's list of best new inventions for 2006! 

{Zuvo 150 Water Filtration System} + Giveaway

I love anything that reduces potentially unhealthy contaminants in my family's drinking water without compromising great taste. And that is why i love Zuvo. I was thrilled to review Zuvo last year and told you how much i love it! Well we are still love using it in our home and our water has never tasted better. According to the company, The Zuvo Purator, uses a five step process that consists of ozonation, UV Light Exposure, photo oxidation, carbon filtration, and dual-pass UV. I don’t pretend to understand the details of all that, but what I do understand is the great taste of the water that comes out.

{Spin and Go Touchless Mop System}+Giveaway

I am a cleaner! I enjoy keeping my home clean for my family. But there is one household chore that i do not like as much! Mopping is my least favorite and we have mostly hard floors throughout the house. Mopping is a big job and I hate the mess, and all the grime involved with mopping my hard floors. I have gone through different mops trying to make my job easier and i have yet to find anything like the Spin & Go Touchless Mop & Wringer Cleaning System.

{Snapware 2 Layer Cupcake & Cookie Carrier}+Giveaway

I love products that make my life more clean and organized. It is a huge task in my home to keep everything clutter free. I often find myself shuffling things from one container to another without any real purpose or design. I was so excited to learn about Snapware and their line of products that are designed to organize your life. With everything from food and home storage containers and even products to manage your pet and craft products.

{Oransi-Robby Wash Ball}+Giveaway

The only thing i like about laundry is getting it done! It is just another major on going project it seems. With so many in the house we use a outrageous amount of laundry soap and things to make all that laundry smell fresh. I heard about the Robby Wash Ball and decided it was time shake things up a bit in the laundry room. The Robby Wash Ball is unlike anything i have ever seen or used.

{Izola Designer Shower Curtain}+Giveaway

One room i find myself changing around a lot is my bathroom. From new towels and accessories to a new bath or shower curtain. I love to mix it up a bit. And finding a great looking functional shower curtain is a complete must. With one simple thing i can change the complete look of my bathroom. I found that with Izola. I was able to pick up a great designer shower curtain that is fresh and fun. Their shower curtain designs include World Destination, Patterns, Maps and they even a really funky fresh Artist series that i love!

{VerTerra Dinnerware}+Giveaway 5 Winners

I often use disposable lunch and dinnerware for quick meals and snacks. We use a good amount of them in our home for the kids. But when i have company or parties and get togethers i over often head for my nicer plates. It always ends up the same, with me washing dishes. I guess i never really considered disposable dinnerware to be attractive and functional. Boy was i wrong. I was able to review a few items from VerTerra that prove that disposable dinnerware that is stylish does exist. No more running right to my best dishes when entertaining. I am running right to my VerTerra Dinnerware and enjoying more time with my company and less on dishes.
