BugOffScreen

 : The smart, magnetic way to screen your door.
         14 standard sizes and custom screens.




 My Fiance' and I moved into an older fixer upper house about 6 months ago, that we're trying to buy. We're talking about built in 1890 old. No central heat/air old! We have 1 window unit in our bedroom, where we spend all 95% of our time when we're together, when we're not at work. We are often finding ourselves opening all the windows and doors to let cool air in, that being said... we have to always combat bugs! Gnats, flies, wasp, everything that flies. I love having a clean home. So having to constantly fight with creepy crawling things isn't on my to do list daily. So when BugOffScreen gave me the okay to review the standard size front door screen ($39.95) to review, I was sooo freaking excited! I checked the porch every day for it to come! To my surprise the shipping it came within a couple of days. (Wow). Not to mention they we're really friendly and easy to do business with. Thanks Brooke! 




The start of putting up the BugOffScreen! Have I mentioned how cute the name of this company is? Love It! 



                             
 The screen came with an adjustable rod. It fits just below the upper frame of the door. It was really easy to maneuver the rod to the door to adjust it to the right length of the frame.
Ignore the ugly door. We're still making improvements to the house. One step at a time. 




 The start of our new BugOffScreen door! I'm so excited! I can't wait for it to be done! He used rubbing alcohol to remove all the dirt, grime, and nasty stuff that would keep the velcro from sticking. The velco sticks from the frame to the screen to secure the screen and protects from creepy crawlers from intruding. 




 He's making the final adjustments on it. Making sure the screen is even, tight, Bug proof. And the velcro is nice and sturdy so when visitors visit or Pidi (the dog) comes flying in from going in and out, it won't come flying off the door frame. She's put it through some uses since we've had it up and well, it's taken some beatings and she's still standing! 




 voila! It's done! It took less than 20 minutes. Well, maybe more, I kept getting in his way because I kept taking pictures. Well.. I had too! Sheesh. I love this screen. Love it. I've had several screens like this since they first came out when I was a teenager. They were always cheap made, with crappy material. Not BugOff tho. You get what you pay for! Just by the touch of it you can tell the screen is made from good made screen material. The magnet isn't cheap either! It has strong holding power! It has really done its job of not letting bugs in. I'm able to leave the door wide open and not worry about bugs flying around in my house. Even with all of us constantly running in and out of the house, the screen is super fast at re-fastening itself back quickly. Another plus to the BugOff screen is it's heavy duty mesh screen material is dark and it gives us a lot of privacy from our new nosy neighbors! Thanks for this review, BugOffScreen! 



I received the BugOffScreen to review for free. I was in no way paid for my opinions. All opinions we're of all of my own.

Tone *Review*




If you are like me, and have gone through at least 30 body washes on the market, trying to find the perfect body wash, you know the kind, the ones that doesn't dry your skin out to where it feels like raw leather, ones that smell amazing, and doesn't break the bank? I found the perfect shower partner, TONE. You can find it at almost any supermarket. I found mine at my local super Wal-Mart. They also have bar soap, that I can't wait to add to my tone shower collection. Tone is great for your skin, and it feels like a home spa right in you're shower. I love the fragrance that it leaves on my skin, even after I wash it off. They have lots of different fragrances, and body washes for different skin type needs. I recently got to try Tone's Petal soft fragrance for free, and I will never got back to my old body washes, and never again will I spend a fortune trying to find the "perfect" body wash again. If you don't take my word for it, go to you're local Wall-mart and try it for yourself.

♥ Okabashi *Review*

Okabashi :  is a family owned business that has focused on designing and manufacturing extremely comfortable shoes for more than 29 years. Since 1984, we have set ourselves apart from the other major footwear manufacturers by producing a shoe that is much more than a shoe. Besides being made in the USA, Okabashi shoes are 100% recyclable, designed with superior foot support and a massaging insole, anti-microbial, dishwasher safe, and backed by a 2-year guarantee. We believe in our product and stand behind it 100%. As you discover our product, you’ll quickly see why our shoes are good for you and for the planet. "Read More".



 I was giving the opportunity to review any pair of Okabashi I wanted, and it was a really hard choice. I took about an hour scrolling through, clicking, scrolling, there was a ton of shoes that I really liked. And then there they were. The pair I couldn't live without. A pair I fell in-love with. The Indigo. I am a huge animal print lover. If you can't tell by my blog. *Grin*. I love unique shoes, and I'm a flip-flop, sandal fanatic. I would wear flip-flops and sandals in the winter in the snow, if I didn't think I would get Gangrene. I love the bold zebra print detail straps. I also love the cloth toe detail. I'm not a big fan of plastic toe detailing on the toes, they wreck havoc on the toes. The shoes are also super easy to clean. I was able to throw them in the sink and spray them off and let them dry. Easy Peasy.



One of the details of the shoes I admire is the non-slip details. As shown in the photo, the shoes have a gritted flower and swirl detail that keeps my feet grounded. The inside of the shoe has a ribbed detail at the bridge and toe area. The kitchen floor where I'm currently staying is horrible when it comes to some of my flip-flops and sandals. I always slip and slide when walking through. One of my Husband and I's favorite thing to do on the weekends is to eat at one of our favorite restaurants and they are also

I stumbled on an Ahh-Mazing website that sells the cutest products for bras!! Brapples. Accessories for bras. The next best accessory since purses. Since losing weight I have found my love of tank tops, and more tank tops. But I seriously hate the boring everyday bra straps that peek out of the tank, Always tugging on my bras to cover them up gets really old. But now I don't have to constantly battle my bra straps in public thanks to Brapples. I recently bought a skin toned strapless bra, and I hate the bra strap that came with it. It's so tight, it cuts into my shoulders, and if I adjust it then it is to loose. It's a pain in my butt. But my Brapples are so comfortable and stylish that I wear them everywhere, with everything. I have gotten so many compliments on my bra straps. girls are always telling me how stylish they are and how pretty. Always asking me where I got my bra, and I giggle and tell them they are Brapples.




I received the  Red/White/Black & Pewter Beaded Bra Straps $25.00. And I fell in love with these the minute I seen them. They are so classy. I can wear them with my special strapless dress that I only wear for special occasions. I hate wearing strapless bras with the dress, I'm always uncomfortable because I feel like I'm spilling out in it, and no one has fun when they are constantly tugging on their bra, and most importantly it's not classy. I once thought about buying beaded bra straps but I hated it as soon as I got my hands on it, the straps had no stretch to it at all, and I have wider shoulders and need stretch to feel comfortable. That's another reason why I love this Brapple beaded bra strap, it has tons of stretch to it, and it was comfortable to wear. This will be on my Christmas stocking list for friends and family this year.





I received the Blue/White/Grey Braided Bra Straps $8.00. I love the look of the braided straps. I also love the blue, white, and grey. The colors of my home town colors. I was a cheerleader in middle school and still share the spirit love even tho I have not lived there in years. I now can show my colors every time I go home. The fabric is super soft and has amazing stretch which is really comfortable. I'm a wife that is always on the go, so I don't need to be held back. Because the bra strap has so much stretch and comfort I would have no problem wearing these straps while exercising. Because of the color blends you can wear these straps with almost any top.  The straps are 1/4 inch in width and are adjustable so they are fun and flirty without being over bearing. Best part is they won't bunch or slip.

♥ Bskinz *Review*

Bskinz  : 2007 when we realized that girls and women don’t really have many options when it comes to athletic wear. Sure, you can find sports bras and shorts that do what they’re supposed to do, but where’s the color? Where’s the fun and individuality that so many young, athletic women embrace? Girls today are strong, self-possessed, and confident of who they are, and we make athletic wear that reflects that with over 125 rich colors and bold patterns that let girls flaunt what they’ve got – on and off the field.

Our clothing makes you feel good when you put it on because we use high-quality nylon spandex, use cuts and styles that allow for full range of motion, are continuously adding colors and styles that girls love to wear, an are committed to making all our products in the USA. "Read More".






I received the Orange Swirl Tie-Dye Compression Shorts from Bskinz . I have recently started going through life changes because of health and life issues, and I have been serious about health and exercise, I have bought a lot of workout clothes and have bought some that I never wear because they are so uncomfortable because of the fabrics, and fit. If you have a regular exercise routine then you know how difficult it is to stay motivated when you are uncomfortable while doing it. I used to wear spandex/spanks fitted clothing a very long time ago, and it was the most comfortable pieces of clothing that I owned. I wore them everywhere. School, work, working out, or just lounging around.



Bskinz has an amazing assortment of products more than just compression shorts, available at really great prices. I would love to get my hands on some more products such as the - Turquoise Zebra - Sport Top, Zebra Sports Bra, and the Brown and Pink Paisley Racerback Top. Everything on the website is affordable and fashion forward. Men's, womens, and children has fashionable workout clothes at their finger tips. I have wore my Compression shorts several times and have gotten a lot of compliments on them, how cute they are, how comfortable they look and the style. The Bskinz whole line is perfect for mom's, dads, college students, or even busy wives like me that are always on the move. The fabric is soft and not scratchy. It's super breathable and durable. These shorts retail for $19.99. The smartest money I could ever spend on workout compression shorts. *Cough-Cough* My Husband said they make my umm.. *Bum* look really good and perky. *Blush*. I usually don't talk about stuff like that on my blog, but I thought that was an important since almost every woman looks for clothing, workout or casual that makes them look good for that special someone, or just to make themselves feel good. B-Skinz is a growing collection of comfortable, flattering, and oh-so-colorful Nylon Spandex active wear and athletic wear for girls and women, on and off the field. Have-to-have wardrobe staples such as headbands, compression shorts, leggings, and sports bras range from $5.99 to $27.99, and from $39..99 to $99 for skorts and dresses in the more sophisticated Club Collection
