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. :)

Java Factory Roasters Review!

A great cup of coffee starts with the beans. At Java Factory, they use 100% Aribica beans that are inspected one by one before and after roasting to make sure they meet the Java Factory standards as well as ours. Their roasting system ensures a smooth, full-bodied taste that's never bitter or acidic. Finally, they hand check every completed cup. If it's not perfect, it's not going anywhere. They sent me a sample pack so I got the opportunity to try all of their flavors out. Here's a little about each:

Wakey Wakey: Even if you're not a morning person, a cup of this coffee makes the wee hours-dare we say-enjoyable. Perfect for waking up your taste buds, this roast packs a bright, crisp taste without the slightest hint of bitterness.
Smooth Caffeinator: When we set out to create a coffee that could win anyone over, we came up with this one. Bold yet mild, full-bodied and mellow, not too weak and not too strong. If we gave this flavor profile to an online matchmaker, we'd score a lot of coffee dates.
Vanilla Dream: Who ever said that vanilla was boring? Infused with smooth vanilla flavor and the tongue-tantalizing taste of butter coffee, this dreamy brew offers vanilla's naysayers a much-needed reality check.
Dark and Handsome: Get ready for a big, hot mug of sexy. Once you've been seduced by the velvety, bold taste and rich caramel aroma, you won't be able to get enough.
Da Bomb: Yes, this coffee comes with a warning label. Exploding with flavor and double the caffeine of regular coffee, this extra bold brew will leave you buzzing. Unless you plan on pulling an all-nighter, this brew is best for your morning rush.
Choconut: Peanut butter and jelly, salt and pepper, apple pie and ice cream...some things were just made to go together. That's why we've blended chocolate, coconut, and coffee into one decadent combination. Whether you're nuts about chocolate or crazy for coconut these luscious flavors will satisfy your cravings.

What I think: So how do I like them? First of all, let me just say that since I had Nolan I've been obsessed with coffee and my Keurig. These little single serving cups are a lifesaver. Now, since I've just recently gotten into coffee I haven't tried that many yet and I feel like I'm more picky than some people. I love the Vanilla Dream. That is definitely my #1 out of all of these bad boys. Wakey Wakey and Smooth Caffeinator are also really good. Now, the other ones aren't bad at all but they just aren't my cup (Did you guys get that? Anyone? Okay, I'll stop.) I can tell this is a great brand of coffee though so I will definitely pass them on to someone who likes a stronger coffee. The price for these is also a lot cheaper than the ones you can buy in stores and online. If you're looking for something new to try in your Keurig these are awesome. They can be purchased here on Amazon.
