I am a long lover of Cariloha.  Their new line of jammies are just awesome!!! What a perfect sleep setting, the softest jammies around snuggled against your beautiful and super soft Cariloha sheets!  Heaven!!!

One of favorite bamboo companies, Cariloha, has a new line of bamboo sleepwear that we are crazy about! What better way to snuggle up with your significant other than in all that softness?! And, of course they are made of environmental friendly bamboo! Let me introduce you to them and then I will tell you all about new jammies!

About Cariloha

Cariloha always knew bamboo as a hard, woody plant that was green and good for the environment, but it could also be made into ultra-soft clothing, bedding, and bath goods that rivaled the softness of cashmere and silk. Bamboo is 3 degrees cooler than cotton and wicks moisture away from your body. It even helps repel odors and allergens. Cariloha didn’t waste time in developing an entire line of bamboo products that would keep you as soft and cool as the Caribbean breeze on a hot summer day

iCoffee Opus Single Cup Brewer Giveaway

iCoffee Opus Single Cup Brewer Giveaway

i Coffee launches game-changing brewer technology, compatible with Keurig 2.0, that offers dramatically smoother and better -tasting coffee from ANY K-cup©.

iCoffee-2

What sets the iCoffee brewing system apart from the others is their SpinBrew technology.  Simply put, SpinBrew technology means it has a spinning needle with jets that spin, steams and stirs the coffee inside the K-compatible cups during brewing.  No more running out to get a great cup of coffee.  Stay home and brew your own.   

Features

►It has a nice design that actually looks pretty neat when it lights up during the brewing process.
►It has a large 75 ounce water reservoir.
►I like how that its removable drip tray has a magnet in it that automatically draws itself into place.
►The box advertises that it brews in less than a minute and I found this to be true. It was much quicker than my current coffee maker.
►The SpinBrew technology produces a smooth cup of coffee and I was amazed at how clean the cup was afterwards. No mess at all! I like the fact that there is no messy filter to throw away.
►It also has a neat feature called “Dial-a-Brew.” You simply turn the dial on the front to the specific number of ounces you want it to make based on the size cup you are using. It can go from 4 to 12 ounces in half ounce increments.
►As soon as it pours one cup, it automatically draws in enough water for the next cup and begins heating it. Before I could finish drinking my first cup, it was ready to start another one.
►It is compatible with every K-cup, so you aren’t stuck having to purchase only their brand cups.
►Since K-cups can get expensive, I was glad it also comes with the iCup Reusable which means you can use any brand coffee you like!
►When you select the Energy Saver mode, it will shut the brewer off after two hours.
If you are looking for a K-cup style brewer, I highly recommend the iCoffee Opus. In fact, here is your chance to win one! After you enter the giveaway below, read Mom Does Reviews’ full review of the iCoffee Opus Brewer!

Peanut Butter Cup Bark

Peanut (1)

Peanut Butter Cup Bark may be my new favorite!! It is just delicious.  If you love Peanut Butter cups than this is the bark for you! 

I just love making bark for all occasions.  I have a bit of a bark obsession.  My obsession is definitely your gain because I have some wonderful bark recipes on the blog for you to pick from. 

Bark is very easy to make so I encourage that you let your future bakers help when making it.

Melting chocolate:

In a microwave-safe container microwave candy melts at 50% power or the defrost setting on your microwave.  Melt for one minute to start.  Remove and stir.  Place back in the microwave for additional 30 seconds at 50% power.  Remove and stir.  Continue to do this in 30 second intervals until smooth and creamy.  Remember less is better.  You can help melt some pieces that are still not fully melted by stirring with a spoon.  You do not want to over microwave your chocolate.

Conversation Heart Candy Dispenser

Make this adorable Conversation Heart Candy Dispenser for all of your little sweethearts!
Conversation

I really am a holiday nut!! I love each and every one of them and consider them all my favorite.  I have been having so much fun making some adorable crafts and delicious sweet treats for Valentine’s Day this year.  This conversation heart candy dispenser came out so cute I could just squeal!! 

I love doing DIY crafts that your kids can easily help you with.  This is one of those.  You can decorate your cup any way you like and this is definitely where you want to let your kids jump in.  

For this craft I used an empty dried out Aqua Ball bottle. You can also look for the same sized Coke bottles and Martinelli’s Apple Juice.

 

 

 

 

 

 

What you need for this craft:

White Plastic Cups, I used the larger sized one.  

Empty dried Aqua Bottle

Conversation hearts (it takes a bunch to fill these up)

Glue (to secure your bottle to the cup, you don’t have to glue if you don’t want too.  Its sits nicely on top either way)

Heart stickers

Valentine’s White Chocolate Fudge

Valentine’s White Chocolate Fudge is just to die for!!! This is a simple two ingredient recipe and honestly I am not sure what else you would need.  The taste is just delicious.  The way to my heart is definitely through fudge, how about you?

This year I have been loving white chocolate.  Beside for how visually pleasing it is to see the beautiful pink, red & white sprinkles against the white milk chocolate, the taste is just delicious and decadent.  Your Valentine will know just how loved they are given this beautiful gift.

Let’s get healthy together with #NatureMade

This post was sponsored by Nature Made® as a part of a Blog Blast for Influence Central.

nature made 1

This is going to be my year!!!! This will be my year to get healthy! I think many of us say the same thing each year and many of us fail.  It really stinks when we fail but without support and motivation it is very hard to stay on track.  If it was so easy to just do it on our own, we would all be doing it.  Many of us need that extra push and I am definitely one of those many people.  Nature made has made it their mission to be there to help us every step of the way.  

Nature Made is the nation’s #1 best-selling brand for quality vitamins, minerals and supplements* to help support nutritional gaps*  Not only are they standing by our side in this journey of health and well-being by selling the nations #1 quality vitamins, they are taking their participation in our journeys one step further.  Our health is more than important to them and they are really proving it.  

nature made 2

Nature Made has created the “Nature Made Daily Boost” program. What’s this,  you ask?  Nature Made has put together a series of Daily Boosts. They’re not complicated, don’t take much time, and are an easy way to help you feel great.  Feel great and help you stay on track.  I must admit staying on track is my biggest downfall.  

By signing up for the “Nature Made Daily Boost” program I now have access to all the Daily Boosts. Every other week,  I also get fresh inspiration from them!  This has been huge for me and really kept me on track.  I am happy to report that after 1 month into the New Year I am still right on track. I feel so accomplished already.  

While I was already impressed with Nature Made as they are the #1 Pharmacist recommended supplement brand in 9 categories**  I feel like they are really putting their effort and energy into my health journey.  We are all in this together.  

First thing I did to help me succeed in my new journey was head over to my local Walmart to purchase Nature Made vitamins, minerals and supplements.   There was no need to wait for a sale as their pricing is already amazing. I did not want anything to delay my start and being the frugal minded person I am this was not even a debate for me.  I went right on over to my local Walmart and stocked up on all my necessary vitamins.  Being healthy looking on the outside but not being healthy on the inside is not being healthy at all.  So vitamins were my absolute first step in this journey.

Exercise and healthy eating was my next step and that can be the most difficult steps of them all.  With my Daily Boosts staying on track has not been a problem at all! 

Lets get excited for this journey together with a fun giveaway.

Strawberry No-Bake Cheesecake Trifle

Strawberry no-bake Cheesecake Trifle is perfect for any special occasion.  It will make for an extra special Valentine’s Day dessert! I have been having such a great time making extra special treats just for Valentine’s Day so make sure you check out my other recipes HERE

I just love cheesecake but even I will admit that I am a bit turned off by how difficult it can be to make a real pretty one.  My mother in law and sister-in-law tease each other terribly over whether or not their cheesecakes have cracks in it.  I am too much of a perfectionist to want to get caught up in that stress mess! LOL  Cheesecake Trifle gives me all of the decadent taste of a cheesecake without all of the hassle.  Lets not forget that it is NO-bake!!!!
