Uncorked Ventures Review - Quality Wine Club and Wine Gift Baskets

I've never been much of a wine connoisseur, but maybe it's because I hadn't found the right bottle yet! Until now that is.  I had the opportunity to review a couple of bottles of wine from Uncorked Ventures. The business was inspired after a family vacation to South America. Two brothers-in-law, Matt Krause and Mark Aselstine discovered a shared passion for wine "as well as their desire for something different, something better." Their wines come from California, Washington, and Oregon, and come from small wine makers that are not regularly available to consumers. Their established relationships in wine country "grants [them] access to the high quality, limited production wines [their] customers desire."

#GetNoticed with Dial Coconut Water Mango Body Wash [Review + Giveaway Ends 8/29]

I love when I find a wonderful smelling body wash for my shower! It just enhances the experience and the right smell can take me away. I'm so excited to share with you my experience with this amazing smelling Dial soap (I nearly said tasty smelling, it smells that good!). The Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango body wash is the next best thing for your shower! It's hydrating and leaves your skin feeling smooth, soft, and smelling amazing.

I used this for a shower over the weekend and it was such a wonderful experience for my skin! It left it feeling so soft, although tragically it left the shower feeling pr

Spellbinders Celebra'tion Collection - Get Crafty! [Giveaway ends 8/22]

One of my favorite things to do is make crafts, although I'm not especially good at inventing new ideas on my own. But the idea of a homemade card or little gift or party  supply just appeals to me! That's why I was so excited to try out the crafts from Spellbinders Celebra'tion Collection provided to me by Purex Insiders. Spellbinders Celebra'tion Collection was inspired by designer Richard Garay . He has a passion for paper crafts (my kind of guy!), event hosting, and handmade greetings. His creations are "cheerful, bright and yummy" which make them not only easy to create but fun and inspiring. I had the chance to create two little crafts - one was a card and the other was a treat bag. The colors used in each of these creations were so bright and fun and colorful. I also looked over each of the items offered in the Celebra'tions Collection and these are so much fun! There are papers, inks, stamps, dies, and embellishments to choose from.
