Product Review: Rid Tech Ultrasonic Pest Repeller

Rid tech package

Are you dealing with unwanted pests? During the Summer months do you have to deal with Ants , mosquitos, spiders? I for one hate spiders and ants and pretty much any insect out there. I cannot stand dealing with ants and this summer the ants have been coming into my house. No matter how much I wipe down my counters I can still find them wandering around my cabinets and on my counters.

Rid Tech

When I got offered the opportunity to review the Rid Tech Ultrasonic pest repeller, I couldn’t agree fast enough. I will try anything and everything to get rid of these pests short of setting my house on fire. I absolutely cannot stand dealing with ants!!

I anxiously waited to get my package with the Rid Tech and plug it in. Yes you got that right all you have to do is plug it in and that’s it!! The Rid Tech works by using ultrasonic technology to drive the pests away. I liked the fact that I didn’t have to deal with any harmful chemicals or poisons to get rid of these pests. I have a household full of kids and pets and using harsh chemicals is not something I want to be using around them.

Now unto the good part, I didn’t notice right away the ants lessening and started to get a bit discouraged the first week. I decided to give it a couple of weeks before I wrote down my opinion and I am glad I did. I started noticing that the amount of ants was less the second week and I also noticed that we haven’t had any spiders around the area where the Rid Tech is plugged at. I have a huge house so it didn’t completely clear the whole house of spiders or ants but there are less and that makes me happy. I am sure I could benefit from a few more of these little units all around the house.

Overall opinion is that while it didn’t get rid of all the ants in my house it did get rid of some from the kitchen which is where the unit was plugged in at.

My craft room isn’t quite crafty right now… more like cluttery

I love doing arts and crafts with the kids. In my quiet time I like doing scrapbooking and more recently I have gotten into my planning/scrapbooking in my planner. I love decorating my planner with stickers and washi tape and all kinds of embellishments. The great thing is that I have accumulated lots of beautiful stuff for my hobby, but the bad thing is that all that stuff is bursting at the seams in my craft room.

I need something like Storable’s storage containers to contain all my things instead of the book shelf that is currently overfilled with cardstocks and stickers and markers and all kids of wood chips and different scraps. I keep telling myself that I am going to organize my craft room but every time I decide to do it I get distracted by the kids or anything else. Please remind me to order some storage containers and maybe a couple more book shelves to get my little area of happiness organized.

I bet I would have a lot more walk room space if I got the sticky notes and crap I have all over my floor in nice neat containers with labels on them. Oh I really need to fix that room and soon.

How has your summer been going ?

Here I thought I would be able to sleep in since it is summer and my kids are out of school. Ha… yeah right, These kids still wake up at the crack of dawn and want to go play outside or want to be running around screaming all over the house. I hear I am bored mom at least 2 or three times an hour but when I offer chores that need to be done all of a sudden they have things to do.

I have been trying to keep my kids as busy as possible with arts and crafts and trips to the Drive in theatre and to the 1.00 movies that our local Movie theatre offers. These kids have too much energy and I don’t have enough energy. I have never been a very big coffee drinker but I think I am going to need one or two cups just to start my day and be able to keep up with these guys.

On another note the weather has been so hot that I have been running the AC 24/7 and I know I am going to hate seeing the electric bill when it gets here. What have you been doing to keep your kids busy ? Do you have any recommendations on where I can take the kids this summer vacation?

Having a household with 6 kids and a dog and a guinea pig and three turtles can stir up a funk if not taken care of and cleaned on the daily. I rely on scented candles and air fresheners and constant cleaning to keep my house smelling fresh and clean. When I was given the chance to try out Renuzit® Pearl Scents I jumped at the opportunity. There is nothing better for this mama like having a wonderful smelling house to relax in.

renuzits pearl scents

The first thing I noticed about the Renuzit Pearl Scents was the beautiful plastic jar it came in the lid had a cute design that is open to let the scent come out of. I quickly tore off the seal and put the lid back on and left it on my mantle. Within minutes I could smell the wonderful Sparkling Rain scent coming out of it. The odor neutralizer in the Renuzit Pearl scents made it seem like we didn’t own any pets.

Product review: +Lifeguard 2.1A Dual USB Car Charger with +IQ technology #pluslifeguard

+lifeguard car charger 3

Are you tired of your cellphone running out of battery? Do you hate waiting hours for your car charger to fully charge your cellphone? I depend on my cellphone and I have gone through many cellphone chargers. I have had some that take forever to charge my cellphone. Oh and let me mention that if for some reason I decide to check a message on my cellphone while its charging, I have seen it lose battery charge instead of gaining it. I have cussed plenty of times when I needed the darn thing to charge my phone and it has let me down time and time again.

Those days of waiting for my phone to charge and it taking hours upon hours are long gone thanks to the +Lifeguard 2.1A Dual USB Car Charger with +IQ Technology. I had the chance to try out the +Lifeguard charger and right away I was pleasantly surprised by its quick charging. Like I said before I have ordered plenty of car chargers that turned out to be pieces of junk, that is totally not the case with the +lifeguard car charger. I have been able to charge my cellphone and my daughters tablet at the same time and both charged very quickly. I for sure thought that by charging two items at the same time it would take longer than usual but it didn’t.

Although the +lifeguard is a little smaller than some of the car chargers I have dealt with, I actually prefer the smaller size because although small it packs a powerful punch just like me :) I absolutely love the florescent blue that the charger light up with when plugged in the charger. The light lets me know it’s plugged in and ready to charge my electronics. We have a variety of electronics ranging from iphones and android phones as well as different types of tablets and all my electronics get charged up quick and easy.

One of the added benefits of buying the +lifeguard car charger is that it carries a lifetime warranty if you should ever need it, although I doubt you will because it is well made and I have that much confidence in it, but if on the off chance you might need it rest assured because +lifeguard backs up their product with a lifetime warranty. I am so glad I got to try out the +lifeguard 2.1A Dual car charger. Now all that I use is the +lifeguard and I have friends asking for one too after experiencing how quickly it charged their cellphone.

The price is usually 16.00 but I suggest buying it right now while its on sale for 10.97 You will see what a great charger it is. Whether its on sale or not I highly recommend getting it if you want your electronics charged quickly.

Its music to my ears and much much more

I love having musician friends, I love having children who are interested in music and like to sing. While I love music, there is no way in heck I would be able to do what they do. I have very deep appreciation for their talents. My daughter has been in choir and my son is very interested in learning how to play different instruments. Every time we go visit our friends they have them bring out their guitars or they will have them play their drums and they sing along with them and I just sit back and watch amazed at how much they love music.

Something so simple as changing a jazzmaster pickguard has them smiling from ear to ear. I personally don’t see the thrill but I am so grateful to my friends who include my children in such activities. Although it might not mean much to other folks it means the world to me and it makes me so happy to have such wonderful friends. Friends who encourage my kids and listen to them play and sing. I have a feeling that if my children get into a band or decide on a singing career, these guys will be front and center. Thank you so much for all the love and affection you give my kids.

Product Review: +Lifeguard mini 1portable charger


I am constantly on the run. One of the things that I depend on is my cellphone. I absolutely cannot leave the house without my cellphone. Depending on how my day is going is how much battery juice I have on my cell. There are days where I am constantly on the phone and do not have time to leave my cellphone plugged to a wall charger. That is where having a reliable portable charger comes in.

I was able to review the +Lifeguard mini 1 portable charger and I fell in love. I love gadgets especially ones that make my life more easier and this portable charger definitely does that. As soon as it arrived I plugged it in to fully charge. The next day I got the opportunity to use it since my Galaxy S4 decided to die on me early in the morning while I was out running errands.

One of the things that impressed me right away was the quickness in which it fully charged my cellphone. I would say in about an hour I had a fully charged cellphone. What was more impressive was that it still had more juice left in it to charge my cell more if it needed it. The +Lifeguard has a premium powerbank that consists of a Samsung Grade A Cell battery. Its 3000mAh gives it enough power to charge my cell like it did and still have more power.

+lifeguard mini

If you are wondering how will you know when your charging is complete.. all you have to do is look at the LED on the side of the +Lifeguard. The LED will light up Blue when it is charging a device and the LED will turn off when it is fully charged. When you are charging the portable charger the LED will be Red and it will turn off when it has been fully charged.


The body build of this portable charger is excellent. It is the size of some of my lipsticks which makes it so convenient for me to carry. I just put it in my pocket and go. The tough aluminum shell makes it impact resistant which is great when my kids get ahold of it. I was also impressed with +LIFEGUARD’s confidence in the MINI 1 because they back up their product with a 18-month money-back guarantee. I am all around impressed with the +Lifeguard mini 1 portable charger.

Last but not least I want to let you know that For a limited time when you order this portable charger, you will get a 14.00 lightening cable for free!! As if you weren’t already getting a good deal you get an added bonus!!! I thought that was awesome because I am sure we all own a device that doesn’t use a micro USB Cord and instead requires a lightening cable.

Product review: Dial® Miracle Oil Hand soap


All mom and days who wash dishes and are rough with their hands know what it feels like to have rough dry hands. I cannot stand feeling my hands all dry and ashy. Especially during the winter is when my hands suffer the most. I try to put lotion on them but when I am constantly washing dishes my hands can’t help but end up all cracked and dry.

I am also a germaphobe so I am constantly washing my hands and making sure they are clean which leaves them dry too. I didn’t see myself stopping the amount of washing that I do , so instead I set out to find a great hand soap to help keep my hands from getting so dry. Dial® Miracle Oil hand soap provided the moisture retention that I was looking for as well as keep my hands feeling clean. Dial® Miracle Oil hand soap is infused with Marula Oil to nourish and deeply hydrate your skin it also protects your skin from skin-damaging free-radicals.

How was your Easter Weekend ?

How was your Easter weekend? Ours was calm and relaxed….just how I like it. Now I am not saying that it wasn’t noisy because unless my kids are sleeping there is always some kind of noise in my house. I find strange and somewhat alarming if the house is too quiet. I know when the house is too quiet it means the boys are up to something or feeling sick.

We had a little Easter egg hunt for the kids and then we had a BBQ. My brother in law did the BBQ and the food was quite delicious. I love drama free days and this Easter was perfect in my book. It would have been even better if my Brother in law had his kids over but it didn’t work out that way. Hopefully we will have them over soon and we can celebrate his boys birthday and my boys birthday with a nice BBQ and some birthday cake.

Product Review: Purex® Crystals Scent splash


I am one of those people who loves her laundry smelling fresh and clean. There is one thing in this house that is never completely done and that is laundry. I like to make sure that my kids laundry is fresh and clean at all times. Having overactive kids means that they sweat in their clothes, they get mud in their clothes and just plain out get dirty. I absolutely need that extra in-wash fragrance booster with my boys!!

Not only do I like to make sure that the stains come out of the clothes, but I also like to make sure that they have that fresh scent too. I have used Purex® crystals to give my detergent that extra boost on all the clothes and now I had the opportunity to try out Purex Crystals scent splash in liquid form. I love the ease of choosing how much or how little liquid my clothes needs at that wash. For instance I added a little more than I usually do to my kids clothes after they spent all day running around at the park and came home all sweaty..yuck!!

I got to try out the Fresh Lavender Blossom and I just love lavender fragrance. I find it so soothing and in a way I hope that the fresh lavender smell will somehow calm my children just a little bit from their usual hyper selves. I absolutely loved trying out and reviewing Purex® crystals scent splash and now I am going to give you guys the opportunity to try it out too.
