A Hiking We Will Go

You can’t beat a nice hike when the weather is perfect. Sometimes that weather doesn’t occur in the Summer; but in Fall, Winter or Spring. Using the word “perfect” is also subjective, what’s considered perfect for some won’t be the same for others.

But what we can all agree on is being able to bring the necessities without feeling like a pack mule!

Check this out!

This is the Shimonfly hiking pack. Ok, so yes it looks like a fanny pack. But, you don’t have to wear it like a fanny pack. The back portion of the pack is wide and firm enough to rest across your back.

It looks compact, right? Can it hold much? Why yes, it can.

Pockets in all the right places! And that water bottle is a 32 ounce bottle!

Adjustable straps helps for additional comfort when you’re wearing it.

Use it on your next hike! Or trip to an amusement park, fair or any outdoor activity!

Here’s a link where you can find one


Makes a great gift to all your outdoorsy or traveler friends and family.

Have Gel Pens will Craft

Crafting can be fun for some or a trial for others. But when you find a tool or product that’s easy and fun to use- why not?

Sometimes even the simplest item can make a big difference.

I just recently found….. Gel pens! Ok….. yes I know, it’s a pen.

This is what I got

All of them have glitter in their color. Which for the Holidays is perfect!

I’m preparing for my Annual Holiday Cookie Exchange, and I wanted to do something a little different for the invites. So, a quick trip to my local Dollar Tree and I stumbled upon mini painting canvases.

Have stampers will create. Unfortunately, the stamp pad didn’t seem to have enough ink. Thank goodness I filled in the color with my new pens.

They’re all done and festive!

Going to have a lot of fun using these pens in many projects!

You Ought to be in Pictures

I absolutely LOVE being a blogger!! I love sharing my experiences and my new finds. With that, my camera is always in use!! Ok, the camera on my phone!

While the camera function is pretty good, I try to maximize whatever lighting and set up of the products I receive. Until now….

I recently purchased a mini studio. It’s a portable photo studio by LiteBox. It’s the 24″x 24″ studio kit

All the parts fit into its carry case for easy mobility and storage.

No need for special tools!

It comes with two LED light bars.

The studio is almost complete once you put its “tent” on, making it look like a cube.

The flaps you see is the top of the cube, where the light connection goes through

The outlet also has the brightness control

Now that everything is set up and connected, you can use the other opening to take your photos.

The zippered flap gives a wider opening for photographing items. Like a true photo studio, it comes with four different background colors; along with a diffuser screen that comes with hooks to attach on to the bars.

There is also a small tripod and phone “holder” if needed.

How good do the photos come out? Here’s a before and after…


It makes me feel like I’m taking my blog to the next level!

Where did I get mine? Right here:

Spa When You Want To

Ahhh….spa…. yes, sometimes it seems like a pipe dream!! Why? Because there are days that you feel you hit the ground running the moment you open your eyes.

Is there anything out there that can give a little of that fresh from the spa feeling in a short amount of time?

Well yes, yes there is. It so happens I received a gift set. The box contains a great array of products from the Rituals USA brand.

Love the “oh ah” moment when you see the box. I choose the Ritual of Ayurveda. It’s a nice balance of sweet almond oil and Indian rose. I’m very sensitive to scents because of my allergies, this one isn’t overwhelming.

Time to try it…. it’s creamy and “solid”, once you gently rub it on your skin you feel the softness. The scent lightly in the air.

The shower gel and foaming shower have found a home in my shower.

My set also included an oil that can be used on your body and hair as well. This is like the “sprinkles on a sundae “! Using all of the products can give you a sense of relaxation. The cherry on the sundae is the matching candle.

You don’t have to get the Rituals of Ayurveda, there are many more to suit your mood or need.

The sets make a great gift. When you unwrap to see a beautiful box and smell what’s inside- the recipient will feel loved!! Take a look over at :


I was very lucky with my set, and would like to give Rituals USA and Tryazon for the complimentary set. Really glad that a Holiday catalogue was also included, the “list” is being checked off!!
