Essential Oil Diffusers


For years I burned candles, however, I didn’t realize how much soot I was inhaling. Furthermore, I didn’t realize that my walls and ceilings were being cover with the soot.  I painted regularly because my ceilings would end up dirty.  As a result, I stopped burning candles.  Repainting was getting costly.

Last year, I attended a bloggers conference where Rocky Mountain Oils was a vendor.  They were promoting their essential oils, so I decided to grab a few samples.  I held on to them for months after the conference.  For some reason I never got around to using them.  So, my daughter’s birthday was approaching and she had essential oil diffusers on her birthday list.  So, I headed over to Amazon and started browsing essential oil diffusers.

Furthermore, it has an automatic shut off.  When the reservoir is dry it shuts off.  It also has an adjustable LED light and 3 different mist settings.  Also, this diffuser will run for up 4 hours on the highest setting, 6 hours on medium and up to 8 hours on the lowest setting.  Unfortunately, this model is out of stock. Here’s one that is similar.

I decided to purchase one for my home to replace the candles.  It was time for me to pull out my stash and start diffusing essential oils.  I selected the COSSCCI Essential Oil Diffuser Humidifier.   I love the fact that it not only  improves air quality, but it functions as a humidifier as well.  The icing on the cake for me, was the 7 LED lights.  I love that it passes through all of the colors.  I find it so soothing.  Not only are the lights soothing, I sleep better.  I have a terrible time with allergies, and this diffuser cleans the air.

My grandchildren love the changing colors on the diffuser.  So, Santa will be placing one under the tree for them.  They love to snuggle with Mawmaw when I’m visiting or when they’re visiting me.  As a result, they were able to enjoy the diffuser at bedtime.   I purchased this essential oil sampler and I am thoroughly enjoying them.  The box contained Peppermint, Eucalyptus,  Lemon Grass, Tea Tree, Sweet Orange, and Lavender.  Sweet Orange and Peppermint are my favs.

So, if you are new to essential oils and looking for essential oil diffusers check them out.




Port Authority Rolling Cooler Review

I received an offer to review a product from Apparel N Bags, and readily accepted.  I love their products.  I’m going to the beach in a few weeks, and decided to check out the Port Authority Rolling Cooler.  I love being able to take cool beverages and snacks to the beach.  It seems like service takes forever when you’re waiting for a waiter or waitress to bring an order.  It’s even worst if when you have hungry, thirsty children who are demanding to have their cravings satisfied.

The box finally arrived.  As usual, Apparel N Bags didn’t disappoint. The cooler was about the size that I expected. I selected black and grey; however, it comes in black and red and black and blue. It’s a quality product as the majority of their products are.  The zippers are sturdy, in my opinion will hold up for some time.  There’s a pocket on the front, which could be used to hold keys, money, a tablet, or that book you’ve been wanting to read for months.

You can see the width of the cooler below.  There’s plenty of room for ice, drinks and snacks that need to be on ice. There’s a shelf that fits inside the cooler if you need to keep things cool, but you don’t want the items directly on ice.


Additionally, the rolling cooler has side straps just in case you need to get a good grip when lifting it to and from your vehicle. The handle was easy to raise and lower.  There is also a zippered compartment on top of the cooler.  It’s not as large as the compartment on the front of the cooler, but it provides additional space.  Perfect for small plates and utensils. The best feature, the price is only $40.00.  Awesome!

Finally, Apparel N Bags has a large selection of apparel, which includes Nike and Adidas golf shirts, Nike hats, business shirts and a host of other items.  The prices are unbelievably low. I suggest that you head over and check out this site for yourself. They have a great selection of bags in an array of colors. I highly recommend this backpack. It’s a great for a Christmas gift, but it’s also a perfect place to pick up a birthday gift or items just for you.

Note:  I received this rolling cooler as compensation for the review for this post; however, my opinions are my own.

Garanimals Baby Girls' 2 Piece Graphic...
We found these adorable 2 piece Garanimal sets at Wal-Mart on-line.  I’ve been a big fan of Garanimals since Xavier was a baby.  I purchased these for Zarriah to knock around in on the week-ends or lazy days.  They’re great for everyday play wear and adorable enough to head to the mall or grocery store when you have to run errands. 

I have found that Garanimals hold up well on the playground, lounging around the house and through the wash.  This I’m so Sweet set include a fleece top and pants, so Zarriah will be nice and toasty this winter while playing with her Disney Princesses.

I fell in love with the Double the Fun set too.  This set is made of fleece as well.  Both will look adorable with a pair of sneakers or flats if your heading to the mall or grocery store.  I purchased both sets for $7.76 each.  I ordered additional items, so I was able to get free shipping to my house.  I love a bargain, especially when I don’t have to pay a fortune for cloths that my little sweeties will grow out of in months.
