Upgrade your writing game at school!

Yep!  Another summer just about over for some students.  As a former student myself, I remember being super excited for school to begin.  Once the first week is over, not so much.  Why? Oh, you know.  Of course, you can chat with your fellow students about the summer.  But mostly, for the NEW backpacks, supplies and clothing.  I know vain.  But most kids are...face it.  It was just something about having new school clothes and supplies.  Holding the brand new pencil, writing on the crisp notebook paper....magical.  Ah...the memories!  Then that fabulous moment happens.  When a fellow student compliments your cool pen or pencil, folder.  "Where did your mom get that from?"  "It's so cool!"  "I want one too!" "Ask your mom to buy me one."   Didn't it make you feel special?  All of that attention.  My mom made me the star of the day!   Bic has been apart of my special memories for many years.  Back then it was only the Bic pens.  Now they have many more products and now these mechanical pencils.  They pencil structure is made like a pen.  Definitely has eye-catching, vibrant colors that definitely will hold any kid's interest.  In addition it has a durable eraser head, which is a definite for a tween. the pencil. Last  year, my daughter was complaining r that she has a callus from writing and drawing many  times in class. So she will definitely need this comfortable padding for her to grip as she writes or draws. 

There is a reason why people have been loyal to Bic products since 1945.  If you discover a product that meets your needs by all means cling to it.  My daughter writes with mechanical pencils at school and at home for writing assignments.  I wanted to get her opinion on the difference between Bic's Velocity pencil compared to the mechanical pencils she used last year.  Trust me, she is the go to for blatantly honest opinions.  Yeah tween age.
Pros: She totally loved the grip!  She explained that the grip made it easier for her to hold the pencil. 
           It's colorful
           Easy click to get led
           Likes the eraser (rids trace of pencil completely)
Con: Eraser wobbles a little bit. But didn't fall off.
         School hasn't started yet, and she wants to show her classmates.

This stain was the worst EVER!!!!

This stain was the absolute worst!  I couldn't remove it without ruining the jacket.  This is actual stain that my daughter mysteriously got on her jacket.  I wanted to try Purex plus Clorox 2 on it, since the Purex brand provided me with a sample in return, review this product.  Hey why not?  It couldn't have arrived at a better time.  My curiosity inspired me to move quickly to see this stain could be removed.  See the results for yourself and you decide.  Will I buy Purex plus Clorox 2 in the future?  YES and you should too! This is only ONE stain out of the various stains that Purex plus Clorox 2 had to tackle.  But visit their website for various tips on stain removal at  However, for now, take a look at the videos below to see how this works!

A one, two combo you can't do without!

It has been a while, but I am back!  I have missed connecting with my readers!  You all are great for continuing to visit.  THANK YOU ALL for being such loyal readers! 

Now that I have returned, I am giving you all the chance to win a coupon for a Free Full-sized bottle of Purex plus Clorox 2 detergent!  I have 3 coupons for a free product (see side pic). 

I think this might be the most effective Purex yet!  Everyone should be familiar with Purex and its cleaning effectiveness.  But, combining Purex and Clorox 2....blows my mind!  There are 3 stain-fighting enzymes to remove 100 stains from starchy stains to protein-based and food stains. 
This combination is action packed with stain fighters that works on 100 stains.  Whoa factor big time!  In order to make a claim like this there had to be a great deal of testing.  However, I want to give it a go.  My daughter walks in the house with a huge black spot on her jacket.  I asked "What is that spot on your jacket?"  "I dunno", she said.  Really?  I know mothers/dads can relate. As soon as you wash, here comes another more challenging stain from I dunno?  It's a good thing that Purex plus Clorox 2 detergent is a smart value, otherwise, our pockets will be totally exhausted.

As you know seeing is believing, so I will conduct my own test on this jacket.  I don't know if Purex plus Clorox 2 will remove it.  But I will try to find out.  The stain on her jacket appears to be an ink stain.  As you very well know, that is one of the toughest stain to remove.  But, I want to examine to what degree will it perform.  In the meantime, visit to find helpful hints for various stain removal.  I will pour the Purex plus Clorox 2 on the jacket  and allow the product to settle in the material.  Then, I will set my washer on prewash, afterwards, I will set it to my regular wash cycle. Will her jacket be a bright clean?

The INK, I think spot!
Will all of the ink disappear? Will it remove most of the ink? The answer will be recorded.  Stay tuned!  Meanwhile, enter the giveaway for your chance!

You better RUN for this DEAL!

My brother's birthday is fast approaching.  Our family is scrambling around trying to figure out what gift to give him.  My brother is extremely low key.  His attitude for just about everything is "it's okay".  I know right.  Not much of a clue as to what he really loves.  We are bouncing ideas everywhere about what will not only surprise him, but a gift that he will actually LOVE!  Considering the fact that I am the most savvy of the family,  naturally, I went to the internet to get ideas.  As I begin to search, I think of things he enjoys like watching sports of any kind and eating.  Yeah that sums it up pretty much.  Since this is baseball season, I am checking baseball games...$59 for a few tickets. However, problem is scheduling for the discounted tickets are not on his days off. Otherwise, the ticket costs are too high for a group of people.  So, that's out for now.   

Okay, I continue to check a few restaurants that he prefers dining. is out of my price range! Now what?  Think girl, THINK!  I thought I can search for affordable restaurants.  I did the search and not one of his favs were listed.  I called my friend for more ideas.  I gave her the rundown on my efforts for his birthday gifts and she said "Go to and see what they have available.  My husband and I went to a fancy restaurant because of a few of their  deals in the past."  We chatted for a minute as I searched and visited the website.  It began to look familiar to me.   I saw the website and I was like, " I totally forgot that I used them years ago too."  I checked  the site to see what type of deal was available.  I am sooo glad I did, "$3 for $25" Gift Certificates!  All I had to do was type in the city/state and what type of food that I wanted to eat.  A list of restaurants and the costs of the tickets were available.  How easy was that!  I jumped on a few deals why not?  I can take him out for his favorite meal and save a few pennies for the rest of us too.  Yay me!

Which  Snakeskin jacket is a blast from the past?

if you guessed the black and white jacket, you know your fashion.                    

I am sure you have heard the old saying as I did, history has a way of repeating itself.  It is channeling the past for current fashions.  I have no problem with it.  I absolutely cray, cray (crazy) over snakeskin anything.  But, I can say that there is small details to update the look.  If you noticed the lapel, it is a solid black color.  Unlike the 70's pic on the right which is a little snakeskin overkill. The buttons standout more than the older version.  Slight detailing overall.  However, if you were to wear the 1970's version, you will be in style now.  Just change the buttons.

How do you stay motivated?

It is difficult for anyone, especially moms to motivate themselves to exercise.  When you finally have some free time, you hardly have enough energy to exercise.  As funny as it sounds, it is more work added to your routine.  To be specific, laundry!   Add on an extra load.  But I have a suggestion.  Why not make laundry a little easier by trying out Odor Eliminator  by Febreeze.  Let me know what you think.
