EcoFFICIENT Paper Review From Shoplet

Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

I have always been someone who goes through a lot of printer paper. And now that Lil Man is older, I think I'm using even more. There are tons of printouts for activities, and I'm finding myself printing more and more. 

Thankfully, I've come across HP's EcoFFICIENT Paper from Shoplet.com.  When I heard about EcoFFicient paper, I wasn't really sure about the quality. I expected the paper to be super thin and basically see-through. 





So I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the trial pack to see that although the paper felt a little thinner than standard paper, it didn't seem to compromise the quality. I printed an 8x11 photograph, and the quality was just as good (with the naked eye) as using standard paper. 

However, the EcoFFICIENT paper is more efficient. And I love that up to 125 sheets can fit into the printing tray - which is great of me. I feel like I am always having to go to the printer and re-fill it with paper. I know when I worked in an office setting that it felt like I was always having to refill the printer or copier. 

Also, a plus side of it being thinner than standard copier paper, is that it takes up less room in binders. So it is easier to file and store. 

Overall, I was well pleased with the quality of HP's EcoFFICIENT paper. For this product along with any other office supply needs that you may have, check out Shoplet.com for their great selection of office supplies

Trouble Sleeping? Bedphones May Be The Answer

Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

So I often have a had time falling asleep, and then staying asleep. The smallest noises wake me up. So I sleep with a sound machine. But when I travel, that doesn't always work for me. And yes, I have an app on my phone. But, Hubby complains because he prefers not to hear ocean waves. I know, ridiculous right? Who doesn't like to hear the ocean? :)

So I introduce to you... the Bedphones Sleep Headphones. Could this be a solution to my problem? I think it just might be.

Stylish And Functional - Curva Artisan Insulated Glasses

Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

I don't know about you and your house, but in our house the more glassware the better. It always seems like I am always looking for a clean glass. Maybe that shows I need to be a little better with washing the dishes? :-)

But when I saw these cute stylish glasses - the Curva Artisan Series, I knew that I just had to give them a try. I love that they are double insulated. I usually use a cup when I am drinking hot liquids because there is a handle. Otherwise simply just holding the cup my hands get too hot. But the curva double insulated glasses can be used for both hot and cold drinks. And as odd as it may seem I loved drinking my coffee this morning from this stylish glass.



I find the size to be perfect for most liquids. This glass will hold approximately six ounces.

In addition to looking neat I found these glasses to be very functional. The cold liquid stayed cold. And the hot liquid stayed hot. What more could I ask for? Well, maybe if they were self cleaning ;) 

And because of their unique style, they make a nice addition to the d├ęcor. If you are in the market for some new glassware, or possibly a gift for someone, I would highly recommend checking out to the Curva Artisan double insulated glassware. They are stylish yet functional.

Susie's Hope - Based On A True Story DVD Giveaway

Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.


I honestly had never heard of Susie's Hope. This movie is based on the true story of Donna Lawrence. She suffered a nearly fatal attack by a pit bull. While recovering she comes upon a pit bull-mix puppy who had been severely beaten, set on fire and left for dead in Greenfield Park in Greensboro, North Carolina on August 20, 2009. This is a story of healing, love, forgiveness, and the desire to change the law to help seek justice and protection for animals. 

Susie's Hope made me stop and think about actions and reactions - one action such as a dog attack, the willing heart of a woman to help a tortured animal, and the fight for justice - it all could have been very different had other choices been made.  

Talk about a pull at your heart strings movie. I don't want to give too much away about the movie, but you can see a trailer here. This movie is Dove Family approved for ages 12+. There were some scenes that would be a little too intense for younger viewers. 

I'm giving away a copy so that one of you can also experience Susie's Hope! Fill out the Giveaway Tool below for a chance to win.

Ozeri 3x Tower Fan with Passive Noise Reduction Technology

Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.


I know, I know, why am I writing to you about a fan in the middle of Winter? Well, because we actually use fans in our house year round. We burn coal/wood during the Winter, and we have found that although our stove has dual fans, putting a fan next to the stove helps push the heat through the rest of the house. So I introduce to you the Ozeri 3x Tower Fan (44") with Passive Noise Reduction Technology




And yes that cool looking piece of technology on the right is the Ozeri 3X Tower Fan. Did I mention it has a remote? Oh, and a timer! It can be programmed up to 7.5 hours in 30 minute increments. It has 3 fan speeds, and offers up to 9 levels of customized airflow. And it has whisper-quiet oscillation. There is even a ‘sleep’ mode. I have to say, when I took it out of the box, both Lil Man and I said “Wow!” I think he added “pretty” ha.

 It worked well to circulate the air for us. And I can only imagine how well it will work for us this Summer to keep us cool. Also, on a side note, Lil Man had an ‘accident’ in his bed, and his mattress was soaked. And I mean soaked (and yes we use a mattress pad but somehow it went around the pad and into the mattress). The Ozeri 3x Tower Fan came to our rescue. In about 30 minutes or so, the bed was dry and ready.

 I love the look of this fan. I think the design is a really neat modern design. And with all of the different settings available, the Ozeri 3X Tower Fan is more than functional. If you are looking for a fan, I would highly recommend this one. It ranks high on my list of favorite products.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
