Halloween 2015 Pumpkin Carve #1 – Sleepy Kitty

This is it!  The first carve of the season!  I have no willpower so when I saw pumpkins for sale at the grocery store I picked one up.  I probably let it sit a little too long but I was able to carve it up just fine.

The crop this year:

700lbs of pumpkins

This years victims.

Orblue Pastry Scraper

Pastry scrapers are great for all sorts of things.  Here’s how the Orblue describes what you can do with it:

Scrape and chop bread or pizza dough with the stainless steel pastry cutter. Your knife is not as good as a bench scraper to chop and transport food off the cutting board and into the pan.

Good Grip – Comfortable non slip rubber handle absorbs pressure. Hold your metal pastry chopper and note how comfortable it is.

Easy cleanup – Cooking can’t get any easier. This pastry scraper is another dishwasher safe tool set in your kitchen.

Ok, do you like adult beverages? Ya’ll know I do! Martini’s, Moscow Mule’s, pina coladas, wine …you name it, I like it! What can I say, I’m an adult!  When I got a chance to try Party Night Anti-Hangover Supplement, I jumped at the chance!

Rebelite Bluetooth Walk & Talk Headphones Review

Hey hotties!

So first off, I’m just going to say it…..I love these things! I like to listen to audio books when I’m doing stuff around the house. And headphones with a cord I find very cumbersome as the cord is always getting caught on stuff and ripping the phone out of my pocket, etc.

These are comfortable to wear, they have a long battery life and seem to charge quickly. They have a couple of buttons that allow you to make adjustments. The microphone is the one thing that could use a little bit of work. When I was wearing them and talking on the phone people had to ask me to repeat myself a couple of time.

All in all I think they are a a great value for the price and you can get them here on Amazon in several different colors.

Survival Bracelet Review

 

 

 

Survival bracelet?   Those that know me know I don’t really hike and I certainly don’t camp.   There are bugs.  And bears.   And sometimes a creepy dude that’s lurking behind a tree and you can’t really tell what he’s doing with his hands.   Oh wait, that’s Belltown.

Well this came in really handy when my dogs collar broke and I needed to rig makeshift slip lead.    Is it fashionable?  No.  Will I wear it every day?  No.  BUT I will most definitely keep one in my glove box with my Maglite, needle nose pliers and duct tape.   I’ll be unstoppable.

P1160658

Here is how it is described:
Paracord Survival Bracelets Are Your 1st Defense For UNEXPECTED EMERGENCIES!
BE PREPARED – Keep A Paracord Bracelet In As Many Places As You See Fit For Your Families Preparedness: The Glove Box of You Car, Clip To Your Backpack or Purse, Camping Gear, Tackle Box, Gun Bag, Etc.

How Can You Use Paracord Survival Bracelets? Secure a tent, a tarp between trees or a splint. Make a tourniquet, Replace a broken shoe laces (this could really save you when hiking), Make a tow line; triple up for extra strength, Hang something up off the ground and so much more.

Carpet Afterlife Stain Remover Review


 

 

Hello again, hotties!  You know what’s sexy?  Well, it’s not carpet cleaner.  BUT clean carpets and upholstery can be pretty sexy.  I’m sure you can tell from the photos on the blog but we are very pet friendly around here.   I work at a pet friendly office and drive dogs around all the time so when I had a chance to test and review Carpet Afterlife I jumped at the chance.   I did receive this product in exchange for my honest review.

Dash-one of the reasons I need Carpet Afterlife in my world!
Dash-one of the reasons I need Carpet Afterlife in my world!

The ironic thing is that I don’t have a bit of carpet in my house.   What I do have is a really disgusting, stinky chair that my husband loves and refuses to get rid of.    It’s so ugly I’m not even going to show you a photo of it.  When my husband isn’t in the chair, then the dogs like to get in there.  Needless to say was neither pretty nor fresh.

Of course you’re always supposed to test a small spot of fabric to make sure it doesn’t do anything weird like change the color or damage the fabric.  Frankly, I just didn’t care.  I hauled the Chair Of Smells out onto the porch, sprayed it generously with the product and let it sit out there and dry.    After about four hours, I brought it back in and vacuumed it.   I couldn’t believe the difference…it actually looked clean!  Well, as clean as this thing can look anyway.

The smell of this Carpet Afterlife if more pleasant than others that I’ve smelled, not too chemically or strong.   The scent of the product clung to the chair for about 24 hours after I treated it but now it just smells clean.  Like honestly smells fresh and looks so much brighter and cleaner.  In fact don’t tell anyone but I’m sitting in it right now and I’m not disgusted.  The bottle is 32oz which is pretty generous.

Pure Copper Moscow Mule Mug with Copper Shot Glass Review

Hello hotties!  Do you like adult beverages?   Well, I know I do!   When I was asked to review these I immediately accepted because I thought they were really cool looking.  At that time I had no idea what a Moscow Mule was.   What is a Moscow Mule?   I’m glad you asked!   Liquor.com enlightens us.

2oz vodka

3oz ginger beer

juice of 1/2 lime

Fill the mug (or highball glass) with ice, add ingredients and garnish with a lime wheel.  Sit back, and enjoy your refreshing boozy beverage.  And this is what it should look like.

Doesn’t that sound delicious?   Now you need the perfect vessel for this amazing cocktail.  I received mine from Kitchen Classique on Amazon.

It arrived in three days, well packaged and in perfect condition.  It comes with a bonus copper shot glass which I thought was awesome because I collect shot glasses and I didn’t have a copper one.  Here are some photos for you enjoyment!

Would I recommend this product to a friend?  Absolutely!  It’s a beautiful set that is a lot of fun to whip out and show off in front of people.  Also, Moscow Mule’s are delicious.
