Shark Rocket Deep Cleaning Review

Shark Rocket

At last an ultra-lightweight vacuum that can clean your home without losing power or suction.  Weighing in at only 8 lbs. the Shark Rocket is a multi-functional vacuum that deep cleans carpets, cleans bare floors and area rugs, has swivel steering and is perfect for a home with pets.  In our household we have 3 little ones that are always causing a mess and an indoor/outdoor dog that is always tracking dirt and leaves in from outside.  From the moment I took the Shark Rocket out of the box I was in love with the functions and features and the sleek look.  Although it can’t stand upright by itself it comes equipped with a wall hook for easy storage when not in use.  My house is made up of ceramic tiling flooring throughout the whole house with the exception of one carpeted bedroom and 3 area rugs.  Having a lightweight vacuum that I can pull out of the closet at any time to clean up after my dog or kids is amazing in my eyes.  What about those hard to reach cob webs that have been sitting in the corner of the walls forever?  Now with the Shark Rocket you can easily switch from floor vacuum to versatile cleaning mode and suck those cob webs away in seconds.  I love this vacuum so much and it’s so easy to use that even my 4 year old son can help clean up the house.

This vacuum may look small but it’s packing a lot of power.  While cleaning the area rug you’ll enjoy the swivel action to ensure you are getting every angle and getting under furniture without having to bend over.  The Shark has so much power that while pushing forward it’s sucking up every little spec of trash without losing any suction.  The Shark Rocket claims to be able to deep clean carpets better than a full size Dyson and I’m going to have to agree with them.  The Dyson is heavy and bulky and is a pain to maneuver while the Rocket is slim and sleek and picks up every little piece of pet hair, dirt, dust and more.  The Rocket was made with convenience in mind and is perfect for apartments, condos, houses, RV’s, dorm rooms and more.  Some of the features I’m loving is the easy to hold ergonomic handle, 2 speed brushroll, cleaning wand, washable filters and the easy to dump dirt trap.

Since my home is made up of mainly bare ceramic tile using this Shark Rocket is so easy.  It seamlessly glides across my floors, under the cabinets, under the kitchen table and gets all those hard to reach areas that normally would be neglected when dealing with a bigger vacuum.  After I’m done giving my floors a good clean I switch the Rocket to cleaning wand mode and get those cob webs, dust I can’t otherwise reach, behind the washer and dryer and more.  This Shark Rocket is seriously amazing and needs a place in everyone’s home.  While on the topic of this vacuum being amazing you’ll love the included specialized attachments allowing you to clean under appliances, dust away attachment to clean all the dust off the surface and the motorized hand tool which is perfect for deep cleaning of pet hair and can be used on upholstery.

At a price point of $199.75 + Free shipping this is definitely an investment you need for your home.  We have replaced our heavy, bulky Dyson vacuum which this ultra lightweight Shark Rocket that we’re using in our entire home.  I wish the Shark Rocket was around 5 years ago when I purchased my vacuum because my home hasn’t been thoroughly cleaned until now.  Purchase the Shark Rocket here.

Being the mother of 3 little ones I have tried my share of baby strollers and have never found one I fell in love with until now.  The Baby Jogger City Versa Stroller is a gift from above and is perfect for any parent on the go. Whether I’m out shopping, hiking, jogging, take a jog around the neighborhood or just taking a brisk walk along the beach side this stroller is perfect for me.  Enjoy a smooth ride for your little one and this stroller is perfect on dirt, grass and pavement.  We live in a great neighborhood and I love to get out in the evenings and go for a jog with my daughter Madison to clear my mind and get some fresh air.  Sometimes Madison loves to look around and other times she’d rather be facing me for comfort.  This City Versa Stroller allows me to position the seat either forward facing or rear facing with the simple click of 2 buttons.  The concept is amazing and I wish I found a stroller like this sooner.  I love being able to see my daughter while running to ensure to is happy and enjoy her times outdoors.

If it’s a hot day out and Madison and I are going on a walk than the shade above offers plenty of shade and comes with 2 clear peek through windows to allow me to keep a close eye on her.  This also allows her to look up and see me at anytime she chooses.  I can’t say enough amazing things about this stroller from Pish Posh.  The 5 point harness is perfect for babies, toddlers and kids up to the weight of 50 lbs and with the color choices of Black, Red and Silver it’s suitable for boys and girls.  With a price point of $449.99 it’s definitely an investment but it’s a great investment that will last you from babies first walk all the way through the age of 4 or 5.  One of the best features is the easy to fold stroller with 1 hand.  I always have my hands full whether with a kid, diaper bag, wallet, drink or anything else and being able to fold the stroller so easily is major bonus points for this mom of 3.

My thoughts are amazing.  This stroller is so perfect for everyday use and it’s made well.  I can tell it will last a long time as long as you care for it and it can be used for all of your kids.  I love that the weight limit is up to 50 lbs allowing my 1 year old, 3 year old and 4 year old to ride in it comfortably.  The rotating seat is amazing and I love that feature for my sense of comfort when it comes to my kids.  This stroller is a must have for any active parent and since it’s so lightweight and folds so nicely taking it on trips is a breeze.  The extra large basket underneath is perfect for the diaper bag, water bottles, blankets and more and the handle on the stroller is so comfortable in your hands.  I’m giving this Baby Jogger City Versa Jogger Stroller 5 solid stars and I couldn’t think of anything that would make it better other than an included cup holder.  If you’re loving this stroller as much as I am you can grab it right now in your favorite color for just $229.00 here.

How to make Pretty Address Labels using Microsoft Word

Address labels

With all of the technology now adays most people communicate by email and text but there are still a few special occasions where hand written letters are a must.  Recently we just sent out First Birthday events for our daughter Madison and it’s so important to add a return address label just incase it’s undeliverable.  Customized Return address labels can be expensive but today I’m showing you a tutorial on how to make your own custom pretty address labels on Microsoft Word.  Not only is this format great for Address return labels but they’re the perfect size for labeling containers, kitchen organization, kids books and more.  I hope you enjoy this tutorial.

  • Open up a blank document in Microsoft Word.
  • Head over to Insert and select a shape, I used the rectangle shape.
  • Draw your rectangle shape and increase the size to Height: 1.38″ x Width: 2.44″
  • Once you have your rectangle shape, click on it and copy it (CTRL C)
  • Once you have it copied Paste the rectangle 3 across and 6 down for a total of 18 labels.
  • Next select all of your rectangles and go to format, shape fill and choose a photo you download, or a texture or gradient.
  • Selected design will be applied to all rectangles.
  • Next double click your boxes (have fun with the fonts) and type in whatever you desire.

Gleam by Melanie Mills Cosmetic Review #GleamGirl

DSC_0079

Gleam is a fantastic makeup line designed by Melanie Mills who is one of Hollywood’s leading style-makers and beauty consultants.  This makeup line can be used year round and can be used anywhere on the body.  I fell in love with the color scheme I received and it’s so perfect for work during the day and date with the husband at nighttime.  Since I’m the mother of 3 little ones aged 4 and under I don’t get a lot of time for my self to get all dolled up for work or play.  My days are spent with my hair thrown on my head and very minimal makeup to save myself the time until I found the easy to use products from Gleam. The lip radiance, body radiance and radiant dust are beautiful and last all day.  The Body Radiance in rose gold went beautiful with my light complexion and hazel eyes and with every glisten of the sun I got a radiant glow.  Not only does the body radiance give your skin a velvety finish but it’s an all over moisturizer that is perfect for everyday wear.  Body Radiance is available in four beautiful shades including light gold, rose gold, bronze gold and deep glow.  The lip radiance is the newest product in the Melanie Mills Gleam line and it’s available in 7 gorgeous shades.  Choose from Naked, Unstoppable, Unforgettable, Uncontrollable, Up Against the Wall, With my heels on and Pop my cork.  This gloss is packed with a bang and it’s so pigmented that it will look beautiful on any skin tone.  As I stated earlier I have a lighter skin tone and the Naked color looks beautiful on me.  The long lasting color won’t transfer and won’t stain through all of your daily activities.  The Body Dust is perfect for a day in, day out or night out and will give you the proper amount of gleam you can get.  I’m in love with the Gleam product line and can’t wait to see all the other product colors to try out.

How to make Pretty labels using Microsoft Word

Happy Birthday Madison Labels

With my daughter’s 1st birthday coming up right around the corner I have been trying to make everything my self to save on costs.  I have found the simplest way to create your own labels using Microsoft Word.  Microsoft word should be accessible to most of you since it’s standard on most computers these days.  I hope you enjoy this tutorial and find it useful and start creating your own adorable labels.  Just think Mailing labels, Cupcake Toppers, labels for your planner or school work and lots more.

How to make Pretty labels using Microsoft Word

Step 1: Upload a blank document on word.

Step 2: Head over to insert, shape and click on oval.

Step 3: Start to draw your “oval” in circle format and adjust the sizing to 2.5″ x 2.25″ to get a nice round circle.  Of course depending on your project you can make the circles bigger or smaller or choose a different shape as well.

Step 4: Once you’re happy with your size/shape hold down shift and click on your image with your right mouse key than press copy.

Step 5: Paste your shape from the top to the bottom of the document.  I also changed the margins on my page layout to 0.5″ all around to give me more space.

Step 6: Hold down Shift and right click all of your circles.  Go to format, shape fill and choose any picture, gradient, texture you wish.  It will be applied to all circles.

Step 7: While all circles are still selected be sure to change the outline weight to give it more of a uniform look I chose a weight of 2 pt.

Step 8: Add in another circle in the center at the size of 1.9″ x 1.73″.

Step 9:  Double click your smaller circle and click add text and type in whatever you wish.

Step 10: Print and enjoy.  You can easily print on Avery Sticker Paper, 8.5 x 11 Inches, White to make these stick to any surface.  Perfect for parties.
