Dimplex Mini Cube Heater Review

* I received the heater mentioned below in exchange for an honest review.

Back-to-school time is quickly approaching. With that comes thoughts of cooler weather and Autumn. After the bitter winter we had this past year I figure it is never too early to start thinking about ways to stay warm when the colder weather heads our way once more.

Our ranch-style home is cozy and the rooms are very big. So, I started looking for space saving, low profile heaters when I came across a company by the name of Dimplex. They are the world leader in electric fireplaces and manufactures the most extensive line of indoor and outdoor electric fireplaces, stoves, grills and fireplace inserts.

Thanks to the generous folks at Dimplex I had the opportunity to review one of their electric heaters. I took a look around their website and I immediately knew which one I wanted to try.

Dimplex sent me the Mini Cube Electric stove to review.

Product description:
Finish: Gloss Red
Shipping Weight: 16.8 lbs.
BTU's: 4,674
Fan forced heater designed to heat up a room up to 400 square feet
No harmful particulates or emissions
Patented lifelike flame effect
Price: $99.00

What did I think?
The first thing that I really liked about this heater is that it comes fully assembled. All I had to do was take it out of the box and plug it in. I love the look of this heater; the bright red finish is definitely eye-catching. I like that you can choose to run it with the heat on for warmth or turn it off and just enjoy the ambiance that the flickering lifelike flames provides. The flames are quite convincing! Another feature that I really love is that even with the heat on it is not too noisy. I have had other small heaters that were quite a bit louder than this one. With a little girl and a cat in the house, I really like that it stays cool to the touch. I don't have to worry about either of them being burned. The rounded edges are also nice because I don't have to worry about my daughter bumping into it and getting hurt. It is lightweight enough to be easy to move from room to room. Here is a picture that will give you a better idea of it's scale.

It is small enough that you could put it pretty much anywhere you want. I think it would be great for dorm rooms or even the office. Even with the small size it warms up a room quickly. I love this little heater, it is sure to bring both smiles to our faces and warmth to our home in the cooler months to come.

Fulcrum Gallery Framed Art Print Review & Giveaway

*I received the framed artwork mentioned below in exchange for an honest review.

With our recent move I have been looking for ways to make our house feel like home. One way I like to personalize a new place is with a great piece of artwork. However, adding new pieces of art to any home can sometimes become hard on the budget. So, when Fulcrum Gallery asked if I would like to review one of their pieces I jumped at the opportunity.

Fulcrum is an online art gallery that offers an immense collection of artwork. There are plenty of styles of artwork to choose from, everything from abstract, country art, minimalist to vintage. But what would I choose? I knew it had to be a conversation starter, something that would catch the eye; a piece of interesting art.

Then I saw it, the Diving Pig Framed Art Print by Artist Michael Sowa.

I chose this print because at first glance you see this serene, scenic view of a summer pond. Then you look a bit closer and you notice a carefree pig taking a leap-of-faith right off the dock.

Product description:
Finished size: 31" x 23"

Diving Pig is a Museum Quality Fine Art Print
The prints Fulcrum Gallery carries are produced using either a lithographic or serigraphic printing process and are printed on high quality archival acid free paper.

What did I think?
The ordering process is quite easy. I just chose the frame option that I wanted, then the mat choice, if any,  and lastly, the glazing option. I chose the Rustic Walnut Tuscan frame with standard acrylic plexiglass. I was sent shipping information with tracking so that I would know where my print was and when to expect it. It was delivered quickly and very well packaged. I appreciate the care they took in handling.

I was impressed with the quality of the print, it did not look like a cheap department store poster. You can even see the sheer joy on this little piggy's face.

The entire image is crisp and sharp. The frame seems to be very well made. It was easy to hang and it even came with hanging hardware. The rustic look adds a simplistic, country charm that goes well with the rest of our decor. I love how it looks on our wall and the joy it brings to our family. This is a beautiful picture that brightens my day every time I look at it. I would recommend Fulcrum Gallery to anyone looking to add a new piece of art to their home or office but also want affordable prices and good quality.

Jorgenson's Kids Clothes Girls Feel Good Shirt Review & Giveaway

*I received the shirt below in exchange for an honest review.

Back-to-school time is almost here. I have been hunting for just the right clothes for my little girl. They have to be functional, comfortable and, yes, cute. When I came across Jorgenson's I just had to ask if I could review a piece of their girl's clothing.

The generous folks at Jorgenson's sent me one of their girls "Feel Good Shirts". Their shirts are made with soft bamboo and cotton fabric to be extra soft. They have flat seams that don't bulge and irritate children. They are cut for a generous fit that makes them simple for dressing and more room to move and play. And did I mention? They are tagless, so no itchy labels either.

We chose  the "Hearts" Shirt to try out.
Product description:
Sizes from 3 to 7
Price: $22.00
Made with lightweight bamboo rayon-cotton blend jersey
Tagless label at neck
Generous fit so it stays comfortable
Machine Washable

What did we think?
As soon as I took it out of the package I was so impressed with just how silky soft the material is. I like the roomy fit, plenty of room to play and grow. The swirling heart design on the front is adorable. I requested a size larger than what my little girl is currently wearing so that I would be able to layer it in the winter months. I think from the fit that she will be able to wear it beyond that, too. The shirt arrived on a cooler than normal, rainy day. I had my daughter to try it on and she loved the way it felt so much that she didn't want to take it off again. So, it is lightweight enough to even wear during the summer. Another feature that my daughter likes is that it is tagless. She takes that after me, she hates the feel of itchy, scratchy tags on her back and neck. My overall opinion: Jorgenson's Kids Clothing may be designed with children with special sensitivities and needs in mind and that is exactly what makes them so soft and comfortable!

Buy it:
You can purchase a shirt like this one by visiting Jorgenson's website. They don't just offer girl's shirts, you can also find shirts for boys, belts and even seamless socks.

KIND Nuts & Spices Snack Bars Review

*I received the product mentioned below in exchange for an honest

As a busy Mom I often find my tummy rumbling in the late afternoon just before supper time. I like to set a good example by choosing a healthy snack. So, I was delighted for the chance to try the new Nuts & Spices flavors of the KIND snack bars.

KIND has added Caramel Almond & Sea Salt and Dark Chocolate Mocha Almond! Now the line is expanded to include eight flavors that contain only 5g of sugar (or less)- and nothing artificial. Each bar begins with a foundation of whole almonds. The Caramel Almond & Sea Salt is made with a blend of savory sea-salt and sweet caramel drizzled over crunchy almonds.
I have to say, I have never had such a delicious looking snack bar. I can actually see the main ingredients and not guess at them. I like that these bars are all natural, are gluten free and are high in fiber and protein.  But what does it taste like? Oh, my goodness, my taste buds were so surprised by this one. It is sweet, creamy, gooey with a hint of saltiness. This one is my favorite of the two. My taste buds had no idea that they were a good-for-me snack.

The Dark Chocolate Mocha Almond is made with dark roast coffee and whole almonds blended with honey and drizzled in dark chocolate.
Isn't this a pretty snack bar? This one has a much bolder flavor. The dark roast coffee in forefront, great for lovers of coffee with a kick. This one definitely woke up my taste buds and made them pay attention. I can't imagine a coffee lover that wouldn't enjoy this one.

Either of these would be great at the office or running between errands as a pick-me-up or a snack to hold you over until your next meal. Great job KIND Bars for adding these flavors to your line up!
