Whip Up The Best Cup of Coffee In Town with the Ninja Coffee Brewer Maker #holidaygiftguide

If you are a coffee lover, I have the perfect brewer for you. So many people around the world can’t fully start their day without a cup or two of their favorite coffee. Whether you like your coffee black, cream and sugar, or served over ice, this Ninja Coffee Brewer Maker does it all. Select 1 of 4 different sizes of brews to create the right amount of coffee for you.

Ninja Coffee Brewer

My husband prefers his coffee black and with a little sprinkle of cinnamon on top. I prefer iced or with a lot of cream and sugar. When I got this Ninja Coffee Brewer Maker, I was in love instantly. After researching it a little I learned about how amazing this brewer is. Instead of a classic brewer, it fills with water to a precise temperature for the perfect flavor and lets the coffee grounds soak before it fills your cup. By doing this it takes away that bitter flavor you sometimes get from a classic brewer maker. Classic pot brewers just run the water directly down and it pushes the grounds to the sides, and it can leave you with a bitter flavor. This technique that Ninja uses gives your coffee that rich and smooth taste that any coffee lover desires. 

Coffee Brewer No Pods Needed – 4 Sizes Of Brews Available

Another amazing thing about this coffee maker that sets itself apart is you can select from 4 different brew sizes. You can do a single cup, half a Carafe, or full Carafe, and an iced coffee setting. That way if you want to serve up a lot of coffee you have the option for a full brew. Or maybe you want a cup before bed, brew a single cup, and don’t waste a pot. This makes brewing coffee a huge win in our home. If I want iced, I simply select and put in the right amount of grounds and ice in my cup, and I am set. Then my husband can turn around and brew a rich cup of coffee right after. You can even choose the strength you want your cup to be, a regular or stronger brew.

Make Smooth and Rich Coffee Just Like a Coffee Shop At Home

I highly recommend this coffee maker for anyone who has a love for coffee. You get that smooth and rich coffee shop taste, right at home for such a small price tag! With the holidays right around the corner, this will make a wonderful gift for any coffee lover.

Ezviz Home Security Cameras – Keep You Home Protected

I received three different Ezviz home security cameras to test out for our home. As a mom of one little boy, that lives in the country, having our home safe is a must. I want to be able to monitor what my son is doing in his bedroom when I am in the kitchen fixing dinner, know who is coming up the drive and more. We live in a scary world, and making sure we are protected as much as possible helps me breathe a little easier.

 EZVIZ Camera

 

I got the Mini Plus, Mini 360 Plus, and the Husky for indoor and outdoor to try out.  I was a little nervous I might struggle to set them up, but I was shocked to find how easy it was. Within probably 10 minutes I had all three of the security cameras synced up to my phone through the app you download. You can stream video straight to your phone, which is so nice to be able to do.

Home Security Cameras to Keep An Eye On What’s Going On 

security cameras for the home My husband went to work one day and was two towns away, and I had asked him to log in to the app and see if he could stream video from our living room. Sure enough, he could, and it even allowed him to talk to us through the Mini Plus security camera. I loved that feature. He was talking to my son, he could hear us and we could hear him! It records in 1080p and will send all the video to your phone or computer to watch!

ezviz

Each camera is pretty small in size, so you can easily tuck it in a corner of a room and no one will probably even know what it is. I love that the Husky can be used for indoor or outdoor. We actually hooked it up outdoors, so we can view our driveway. That way if we see a mail carrier coming, a guest, or a stranger pulling up to our home we can monitor it.

I keep our house locked up during the day, and sometimes we get random people that show up asking to paint our home, a roof to our shop, etc. Being alone with just my son, sometimes I don’t feel comfortable opening the door to strangers, so I can ask them what they need through the camera. It makes it a safer option for me, and I can still talk to them if they need something. Or if my son is napping and we get a package delivered, I can tell them to leave by the door and I will get when he wakes up.

Overall I couldn’t be happier with this line of security cameras. They offer wire-free, wi-fi, outdoor, indoor, wired kits and more. You can go and order online and hook up their products quickly and have your home protected in no time!

Now that fall is here, eating plenty of fresh fruits and veggies is as important as ever! Keeping that produce fresh is easier than ever now that I have Rubbermaid FreshWorks Produce Savers in my kitchen.

To use the Rubbermaid FreshWorks system, you can simply move the produce from the original packaging and place it in the storage system and refrigerate it!

How To Save on Natural Cleaning Products

You might wonder how you can save on natural cleaning products if you use them. Natural cleaning products are a wonderful way to clean your home without harsh chemicals. In that, you might find natural cleaning products can be a bit more expensive, and I am going to share how to save a little money on them!

Save on Natural Cleaning Products

After having my son, I began to really focus on what labels said. I would pick up a cleaner and be unable to pronounce over half of the ingredients listed. If you have a kid, you know they put EVERYTHING in their mouth’s, so making sure I knew what I was cleaning with was a must. That is why I began shopping natural cleaners.

That is when I found Grove Collaborative and fell in love.  Grove Collaborative sells products that are affordable, healthy, sustainable, and effective! They offer great low everyday prices on their products, and they ship directly to your doorstep! You don’t have to go out and get your household cleaners, candles, laundry soap and detergent and more.

I can shop on Grove and buy affordable natural cleaning products than less than I can find anywhere else. Our stores sell just a few and they are quite a bit higher in price. I love that I can shop online and not even have to get dressed and leave the house to get the cleaners I love.

Certified B Corp 

Grove Collaborative is certified B Corp, which is a certification that has standards on environmental performance, and transparency and more. So you know exactly what you are getting when you shop at their online store. It is a company you can know and trust, and know they follow strict guidelines to providing the best products they can.

I was able to pick out a variety of products to use in my home from bathroom cleaners, countertop cleaners to candles. I even got a few towels that I will be using. I am a huge fan of the Mrs. Meyers and Method brands, they offer wonderful scents to their cleaning products and do a wonderful job at getting things clean.

  VIP Membership 

At Grove Collaborative being a VIP Member is awesome. You get free shipping and score free products, which in the big scheme of things saves you a lot. Like any other membership, if you use their site a lot the membership fee will pay for itself.  You can choose to order a product one time only, or set it up to have it reoccur and be delivered automatically to your house. So say you love the Method Anti-Bac cleaner for the bathroom, you can have it delivered once a month if you choose. You can skip a month of shipments and order when you please, it is an awesome site for sure.

grove collaborative

I live in a pretty rural area, so for me finding a variety of natural cleaners is easier said than done. Our local grocery store sells 1 Mrs. Meyers and it is in one scent only. So to be able to try the limited edition scents and try Antibac cleaners from Method is awesome. It is shipped to my doorstep and I can get to work on keeping our house clean. For me Grove Collaborative makes cleaning fun because I love fresh smelling products, it gives me the motivation to clean!

Oreck Air Response for Cleaner Air and Less Allergens

Orek Air Response Purifier
As summer winds down and the promise of fall is evident in the cool late night walks with the dogs, I start to think about opening the windows and enjoying the fresh air while I can!
The downside to that is I open the windows to dust, allergens, and pollutants too. The struggle to maintain fresh air and good health is real. Is it possible to actually have both?
I often feel I am already at a struggle with air quality. With 3 active boys and 2 rambunctious dogs, there are daily battles with odors, dirt, pet dander and dog hair! I realized I needed a secret weapon to add to our house, and I found just that in the Oreck Air Response.
This is an incredibly useful product designed for large rooms! It automatically cleans the air with DustSense. The unit automatically responds to pollutants and dust in the air your family breathes to clean it and trap unsafe particles and odors.
With an air quality bar, you know that the unit is doing its job and keeping your air quality in check while capturing 99% of particles in the air you breathe.
Orek Air
This unit is perfect for a large, frequently used room, like a living room. It has a timer feature with auto shut off so that it will do its job without requiring any effort from you! The powerful HEPA Media and carbon filters are replaceable to keep your family breathing cleaner air all year round for better health.

Air Response purifiers are designed to address multiple air-quality issues present in most households:

  • Dust and dirt
  • Allergy-causing dust mites, pollen, and pet dander
  • Food and cooking odors
  • Pet odors
  • Mold spores
  • Tobacco smoke
  • Pollutants from open windows or frequently opened doors
This will be a frequently used item in my home throughout the seasons. I would highly recommend this Oreck Air Response product to other families. It retails for under $270 and is an investment in the health of your family. I love that it captures dander, dust, allergens, and odors for a fresher home with cleaner air all in one handy device.
I have noticed we have fewer odors,  fewer sneezes, and sniffles since we started using this great Oreck air response unit. I am very pleased with the results as well as the ease of use of the unit.

Purifiers are available in three convenient sizes, small (MSRP: $179.99), medium ($229.99), and large ($269.99), and are available at AmazonHomeDepot.com, and the Oreck website.

BloomsyBox – Handpicked Flowers Delivered To Your Front Door

Nothing is more fun than having a fresh bouquet of flowers to display in your home! They are stunning to look at but the fragrance they fill the room with is amazing! I had the pleasure of working with BloomsyBox and I got fresh hand picked flowers delivered right to my front door!

Bloomsybox

I am head over heels in love with this company, you all! You can choose weekly, bi-weekly and even monthly have fresh hand picked flowers sent to your home. You can even do a one-time delivery if you choose to! They arrive in a box, with a little packet of the water to help them last longer, information on the flowers you get, and how to prepare the flowers in your vase! You can pick to get a variety of flowers or roses, they offer different plans, this month I got roses! 

Bloomsybox

As you can see this is what it looked like once I took these flowers out of the box, they are hand-wrapped in the paper, it has the packet to pour in the water and an information packet. I got some Free Spirit roses, and my goodness did these roses have such a beautiful and strong scent. I am a huge fan of roses, and I have never seen such a beautiful color of roses before! That vibrant orange and pink and other mixes of colors, just really made these roses stand out.

Hand Picked and Delivered To Your Doorstep 

Bloomsybox Review

I put them on our kitchen table so that we could look at them throughout the day. It really added so much color to our living and dining room. I got so many compliments when we had some family members over to visit one day. Everyone kept asking where did we get such gorgeous flowers, and I went through and explained it all to them! 

What I love about this subscription service, is we live in the country. In a small town at that, so to have unique and stunning flowers delivered to our front door, and all I have to do is trim and place in a vase, is exactly what I need. I love our local flower shop, don’t get me wrong, but they have basic flowers. I have never in my life seen such vivid and gorgeous roses like this because we just don’t get them around here. To be able to get flowers that are unique is exactly why I choose Bloomsybox!

Bloomsybox Subscription
