Beautiful Life - Apple Shaped Salad Spinner

I don't know about you guys, but I love me a good salad. I like to pile it up with all sorts of delicious toppings like tomatoes, artichoke, strawberries, almonds, chicken, salmon, and cranberries (not all at once of course). That's a lot of stuff to wash and in the go, go, go world of today I needed a fast and easy solution to my salad eating!




Ok, I'm reaching a little bit. In all honesty though, this salad spinner is super cute and if you decorate your kitchen in apples, which is making a comeback, then you're going to love it. Plus, it is super fun to use.


Cute & Healthy Gourmet Apple-Shaped Salad Spinner, 3 Qt (Small) Red


The size is a little small (3 quarts), but it is perfect for making side salads for 2-3 people. It is BPA-free and dishwasher safe. This is a great way to wash and dry your salad fixings quickly and easily and it is so fun that you may even be able to get your munchkin to eat something healthy. 

Here's a short video of the salad spinner in action:

GreenWe - American Flag + Stand

With all this warm weather, people are starting to work on their yard again. I live in a subdivision, so there are lots of residents here who like to spiffy up their front yard and many like to use decorations. We have always kept an attractive looking yard, but have never decorated it with anything other than plants and flowers, so I was excited to see how this little flag would look.

Sturdy Metal Flag Stand + American Flag by GreenWeR. Wrought Iron Stand with Rubber Stopper + Anti-Wind Clip. Patriotic Flag - Weather Proof & Wind Resistant. Garden / Patio / Pot 32" Flag Stake


Well, as you can see it looks pretty darn good. At least I think so. The corner where I wound up putting it is notorious for trying to trip people, so now my walkway is not only safe, but patriotic to boot!

The metal stand comes in 3 parts that screw together, so it is easy to assemble and have the 12 x 18 inch American flag waving in no time. The kit also includes a rubber stopper to keep the flag from flying off during times of high wind, and an anti-wind clip to keep it from rolling up (which doesn't really work, but I'll overlook that).

The flag is made from polyester and is double sided. The stand is made from wrought iron and has an "h" bracket spike to keep it in position. It even comes with a 3 year warranty!

This is a great way to show your support for our troops or to add a little patriotism to your yard. It is also great for people with small yards who can't fly a full sized flag. It is easy to assemble and to move from spot to spot.

Baltic Essentials - Essential Oil Diffuser Necklace and Giveaway


Hello! I hope everyone is having a happy Monday! I wanted to take this time to not only tell you about one of my new favorite products but to also announce a giveaway!

Baltic Essentials - Essential Oil Diffuser Necklace and Giveaway

Baltic Essentials was so nice and offered to let me try out one of their beautiful necklaces that has an essential oil diffuser pendant! I am so in love with this necklace and I have worn it every time I have left the house.

Scent is so powerful and can actually trigger memories. Not only that, but certain scents can be healing. Essential oils can help you relax or sleep, they can improve your breathing or digestion, they can even help ease pain. They provide healing mentally, physically, and emotionally. The essential oil diffuser necklace not only ensures that you have constant aromatherapy, but it also is a beautiful addition to your wardrobe and a conversation piece.

This particular necklace is a silver locket pendant on a 24" chain. It also comes with 5 washable, synthetic felt pads (in blue, red, pink, purple, and white) that soak up your essential oil and slowly release their scent for hours and hours. I use about 2-3 drops of my desired oil and it will actually last for a few days before I need to refresh it.

Here is a diagram of necklace lengths in case you aren't quite sure where a 24" chain will fall. Chains this length can typically be put on over the head so it is ideal for those of you who hate fiddling with clasps or older members of your family with arthritis (and a few drops of lavender or eucalyptus will help with their joints too).

The locket style pendent makes changing your daily scent or color a breeze and the pads are hand washable! You can always order replacements from Baltic Essentials if you happen to lose one.

Baltic Essentials has a large variety of essential oil diffuser necklaces in different metal options and patterns. There is something for everyone! And if you prefer your aromatherapy at home, they also offer humidifiers! Check out all of their diffusers HERE!
