2014 Mitsubishi Outlander & 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport

Dave and I had the pleasure of testing out the 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander and the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport over the last few weeks.

First up was the 2014 Outlander. This was a great SUV for our family of 4. Not only does it drive great but it's really spacious and it was super easy to install our boys' car seats in. We loved the keyless entry, push-to-start and the automatic trunk. It was really a convenient car. If you've been watching our daily vlogs you'll know I was in love with the heated seats. I know this is now a common feature in most new cars but we have an older car so it's new to me! Another feature I really liked was that it beeped whenever you were crossing into the next lane or getting too close to the car in front of you. (This is a feature that the Outlander Sport didn't have.)

The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport was a really nice car as well. The drive was smooth thanks to the continuously variable transmission. It felt very fluid and like you were just cruising along. Oh, and the moon roof on this thing was AMAZING! The Outlander is more affordable and better on gas, however, if you're looking for something as roomy as the regular Outlander you should just stick with that. We weren't squished and it wasn't impossible for us to be in this car but we much more preferred the space we had in the 2014 Outlander. There was definitely less trunk room and less leg room for everyone in the Sport. If your children aren't in car seats, if this won't be used as a family car or maybe you're a little on the shorter side like me I do think this would be a great choice for you. We definitely preferred the look of the Sport (inside and out) but it just didn't beat out the regular Outlander.

Overall, we really loved both cars and would definitely recommend them. If you have any questions about either car please feel free to leave me a comment on here or message me on any of my social media accounts.

HomeStateApparel Review!

If you're looking for a shirt to represent your home state then HomeStateApparel is worth checking out. They print their shirts on hand silk screened, American Apparel Tri-Blend T-Shirts. All shirts will have the popular distressed "home" logo on the front over your state.

I got my Pennsylvania Home State T-Shirt on a women's cut shirt. This is a tapered shirt with shorter cut sleeves and a deeper neck line and fit a little closer to a Junior's sizing. I absolutely love American Apparel shirts because they're so comfortable but cute at the same time.  Every time I've worn this shirt I got a compliment on it or someone asking me where it was from.

They don't just print on women's shirts though! They also have unisex shirts, ones for babies and kids, license plate magnets, car decals, wood wall hangings and stickers too!

Beautiful DIY Flowers From Bloominous

I was recently contacted by an awesome website that provides easy DIY floral arrangement kits for weddings and special events. Many of us go the DIY-route to save money, but the process of researching, purchasing, and arranging florals can sometimes cause more stress and end up being more money. Here's where Bloominous comes in. This company launched in 2014 to give brides and event planners an alternative option for DIY flowers. Here are some advantages of using Bloominous for a wedding or event:

• With Bloominous, brides will be able to save anywhere from 30% to 50% off their original floral budget.

• Each piece is priced without the typical 300% markup from wedding florists, e.g. $5 boutonnieres, $40 centerpieces, and $50 bouquets.

• Most DIY floral services do not send ‘prepped’ flowers, but ours come cut-to-order, dethorned, and trimmed, so brides save time AND money.

• Each kit comes with step-by-step photo instructions for easy assembling within 10 to 20 minutes per piece, as well as flower care products and design tips.

• All collections featuring specialty flowers are designed florist with 10+ years of experience in event and floral design.

• It’s not just the flowers—from trends to vases to favors, we design the whole look for your inspiration, in our offerings and blog.

I think this whole 'florist-at-your-fingertips' experience is something that would be really helpful to a lot of people. Bloominous makes DIY fun, easy, and approachable for anyone who wants to try. Check it out at

Krystal and Chloe Review!

Krystal and Chloe is an Etsy shop that makes custom, practical, cute, everyday hair accessories, colorful baby blankets and more. I was sent this adorable Camouflage Travel Blanket. It's a super soft blanket made from fleece and backed with minky swirl fabric. I'm obsessed with minky blankets and I really wish I had one for myself! This is the perfect blanket to snuggle with and Nolan just loves rubbing it on his face. :) She also has the cutest little doll face clip holders as well as bows, clips and she can even make larger blankets by request.

Pochette Gavotte Review!

Pochette Gavotte creates cute and cozy custom cases for your tablet and laptop. If you have an iPad, Macbook, PC, Kindle or any other type of tablet you should definitely check them out. I chose this Aqua Mini iPad Case for my iPad mini. Adorable! Not only is it cute but it's really protective too. It's padded, has a cute wooden button closure at the top, feels and looks very well made. The front pouch is great for keeping a pen, stylus, your phone or even a charger. It was also customized to fit over my hard case that I have on my iPad. It's the little things like the owner making sure the case will fit properly that show how great their customer service is and that they really care about their business. They have a ton of different fabrics to select from wether you like something more simple or something a little more jazzed up. :)
