If you are looking for something a little bit different for gifts for this Valentine’s Day then look no further then Lime Tree Cove. They have a great line of barware, cocktail spices and sugars, gift baskets, and the Barmaid Drink Rimmer.

Valentine’s Gift Ideas{Pretty Woman Perfume}+Giveaway 3 Winners

I absolutely love perfume. It is one of my favorite things to spoil myself with and is just as great to receive as a gift. But not all perfumes are created equal. Some may have a great looking bottle and name and the scent can leave a lot to be desired. For me a great perfume is one that not only smells great but also makes you feel great.

Valentine’s Gift Idea {Votivo} + Giveaway

I love to have all the things around me to smell wonderful. I enjoy splurging on great scented lotions, mists and am crazy about products for my home. If you are like me then your next stop should be Votivo.They make it so easy to find all of that in one place. Votivo offers great luxury quality products like soaps, moisturizers, diffusers , candles and more. Each one of their products come in a variety of amazing fragrances.

{Lime Tree Cove}

Have you ever wanted to get that perfect line of the perfect amount of salt or sugar around the rim of your glass without waste any or making a mess?  Lime Tree Cove can help.  They have a great line of barware, cocktail spices and sugars, gift baskets, and the Barmaid Drink Rimmer.

Lime Tree Cove began when founder Tim McCaffery was asked by his fiancee if he could re-salt her margarita glass; he developed the Barmaid Drink Rimmer.  You simply wet the rim of your glass with a fruit slice, and then press the button as you move it around the rim. 

We got a chance to review the Barmaid and the Margarita Fiesta Sampler.  It's easy to use and you can control the amount of cocktail spice that you get on the rim.  You get perfectly rimmed glass with no mess and no waste.  I love it.  It's totally fun to use and neat to make awesome looking drinks.  And if you sip all the salt or sugar off before you finish your drink, putting more on is no problem.

{Shapercise by ShaToBu}

Did anyone make any New Year's resolutions about getting in shape this year? Yep, me too.   In order to get in shape, we all know that you've got to eat healthy and exercise. But with busy schedules, we need any little bit of help that we can get.

Smart and Trendy Moms has recently come across a new shapewear product that can help!  Shapercise by ShaToBu is a shaper that not only helps you look good by helping to shape your tummy, bottom, and thighs, but it also gives you a light workout while you are wearing it. 


Have you ever seen a great product and thought, “Wow, I wonder why no one ever thought of that before?” Kushyfoot has several of those.  Did you ever wish that your cute shoes or boots were more comfortable?  Kushyfoot can help.

Kushyfoot offers socks, foot covers, toe covers, tights and men's socks that use the principles of reflexology to massage your feet with every step. The padded/wavy design cushions your feet in your shoes. I especially love the tights.

{Easy Modern DIY Wall Decor Tutorial}

I often find myself redecorating areas in my house. More times then not its me grabbing something off a shelf or wall and doing something to it to make it a new piece for a different area in my home. Today I started off with a few frames that were set aside for a rainy day. Basically really simple frames that were plain wood and really had no place in my house.

{iTriage Healthcare App #spon}

There are so many apps for phones that are available. But hardly any that would come in handy as the new iTriage Healthcare App. You can search through systems, conditions and so much more. As a mom and wife I cannot count how many times I am running to the computer to type in a symptom or search for information. This app will be very helpful in getting me the information i need quickly. One other thing I really love is iTriage can use the iPhone’s GPS to help you find nearby pharmacies, hospitals, and other treatment centers. In some states it gives ER wait times!(I love that) I have been in need of pharmacy info before and this will make it much easier! This app is available now for iPhone, iPod Touch, Android and Palm. And coming to Blackberry Soon.

{Sites We Love - Daily Mile}

I used to be fairly active and in shape -- then I had kids.   I have decided to do something for myself and try to get back into shape (Yep, I crossed out "try to" -- I will get the hang of this positive thinking thing!) So, I have been jogging.  It’s been going pretty well so far. I found a really neat free website called Daily Mile that I have been using to track my miles.  We have posted about Daily Mile before, but this seemed like a great time to mention it again when a lot of us are trying to stick to New Years Resolutions.

{Scunci Hair Accessories}

I have a huge love of hair accessories. My hair is very long and keeping it up, back or styled is often a problem. I solve that with my mass amount of accessories for my hair. One brand I have always loved in Scunci. I buy their products for myself and for my 2 girls often and we are never let down. They have everything available from basic to sophisticated. I love how fun and trendy their products are. It's so convenient that I am able to buy them for myself and that they have Scunci Girl for my daughters. I always know I am getting a good product that is perfect for any style.
