Robby Wash Ball Review & Giveaway

Hey guys, I have a really exciting review and giveaway for you. I was recently sent a cool product to test and review. And now I will be able to give one lucky reader one too.

The product is called  Robby Wash Ball. And it is can be purchased on the Oransi website.

Here is some info from company:

The practical laundry washing ball

easy to use: 
  1. Toss it in your washing machine and leave it there (works with both front and top load washing machines including high efficiency washers)
  2. None of the hassles that you have with traditional laundry detergent such as lugging it through the store, cleaning up spilled detergent, etc.
  3. Easy on your wallet

My take on the product:

When I first heard about the Robby Wash ball I was really intrigued and curious as to how this would work. I received my package in the mail. And read up on how to use this. Which basically is very simple. Just toss it in your washer, with your clothes and wash. According to their website the Robby Wash Ball will last up to 1 yr. (or 120 consecutive washes) .

When you need to refill the Robby Wash ball simply open the tab on the ball to refill with the macro molecule pellets, when they are less then 75% full.

The first thing I tried washing was my ultra favorite blanket. I washed it with the Robby Wash Ball. I really noticed how soft it was afterwards! Awesome! I am really loving this product. And my husband - who was very skeptical at first because he is really picky on his laundry - even said it is working great !

With two kids - of course they get stains on their clothes - and I have also really been enjoying the free stain remover stick too.

Please visit these links to learn more about this for yourself:

Introducing Robby Wash
Why Robby Wash

Win it! One lucky reader will win their own Robby Wash Ball ($32.95). Which the pack includes the blue washing ball, a stain stick and three extra packets of macro-molecule pellets.

Nail Art Stickers Review

I recently was sent some nail art stickers to review.

Here is some info. from the company:

Product Description stock a fantastic range of nail art stickers. Each sheet contains between 30 and 60+ stickers so this means that you can complete mutliple manicures or share with friends. This product is extremely affordable at only £1.25 each. 

Nail art stickers are easy to use and create a professional looking manicure which ends up costing pennies. 

My take on the product:

I found out that these stickers are cost £1.25 GBP  which means (approximately $1.98 USD) per sheet. So that is a great price!

Also - . All items are giftwrapped and placed in organza bags prior to being shipped. 

I am no expert at doing my nails or applying nail stickers. (or taking shots of my hands.)  So forgive the following pictures. But I had fun trying out these nail art stickers & I think with a little pracitce I could get better at it. 

And these were very easy to apply so I may give it another try & I really think I could get the hang of it. And I just love the design & colors on these! Lots of possibilities. 

Check out nail art stickers yourself on this link:  nail art stickers and purchase some for yourself. 

Disclosure: I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Lenovo's Enhanced Multimedia Remote

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Lenovo for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Lenovo -

I would like to give you some information about a product I recently learned about. Have you heard of the Lenovo? Well now there is an upgrade to the popular Lenovo Enhanced Multimedia Remote with Keyboard. 

Would you like to know more about this enhanced version? Well, please watch this video now to find out more about it. This video is very informative and will tell you a lot about it:

One thing I know after watching this video is that my son would love to have one of these! They took people's feedback and made a lot of improvements to the Lenovo's Remote. This will give you more function and fun now. This would be great to control your PC, xbox, etc. 

One feature that really is an upgrade form the previous model is the backlit keyboard. It will really light up in the dark. I know when my son is doing something on his PC or PS3 he usually is doing it in his dark room. So to have this backlit keyboard would really help. If I had a chance to use one I really would be excited about that feature!

A few other things I  wanted you to know -  is there are no drivers to install. You just simply plug in the "nano dongle" USB and you are ready to go. And it has a great frequency too. So you can use it as far as 30 feet away! This looks so cool!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Bulbs. Dig, Drop, Done. for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Hey everyone. I was just visiting a really cool website and I wanted to share it with you all. Please visit to learn more for yourself too. But I will try to let you know what I learned there myself.

I am afraid I am not much of a gardener. Even though it should be in my genes. My grandmother and all the other woman in my family seem to be though. I should have inherited it or something. But I was looking at the website Dig Drop Done and really got inspired by the use of bulbs. Doesn't this picture below look like a cool idea?

This looks like it would make a great Spring centerpiece. So festive. You can get a lot of other ideas there as well. There is also some ladies to help you out too. The Dig Drop Done ladies will help you to expand your knowledge and enjoyment out of bulbs. I related to Marcy - the Super Mom, because she has a busy family life, but finds bulbs a simple and easy way to bring some beauty to her life.


There is also a cool contest going on "Bulbs. Dig, Drop, Done" Enter a picture of your yard at Curbside Chaos and you could win a $5,000 yard makeover! Also for every Tweet shared on Bulbs. Dig, Drop, Done - they will donate $1.00 to Rebuilding Together.

Lastly I want to tell you about the Garden Guru tool. It will tell you depending on your location what kind of bulbs would be good for you. This is one they suggested for me. Aren't these lovely?


I'm ready to start planting!

WW Burnt Pizza

This is what an individual pan pizza looks like after it has been cooking for 4 hrs. And when you wake up at 6 am on a Sunday and find out that your 15 yr old son has left the oven on and the pizza is burning away in the oven.

He has since been restricted to cooking - at least to when I am awake to know if the pizza is burning.
