Well, it’s here. Fall. It’s hard to believe. It sure snuck up on me. BUT, it’s my favorite season. I always think of that line in You’ve Got Mail…..where Tom Hanks references a bouquet of freshly sharpened pencils. Honestly, I’d love getting that gift. Anyway, here’s what I’m crushing on right now.
Please note I received samples of some of these products to facilitate these reviews. My opinions are my own and I only bring you items I think you will find useful or I use in my own home.
You’ve probably heard how disgusting the sponge in your kitchen is right? Well, if you haven’t heard, it’s GROSS. That’s where SpongeBath comes in. It’s a beautifully designed sponge caddy that sits on your kitchen counter. I love that it hides my ugly sponge. All you need to do is, when you’re done using your sponge, drop it into the SpongeBath caddy. The caddy uses an eco-friendly solution to kill 99.99% of odor causing bacteria, leaving your sponge fresh and ready to be used again in your home. Your sponges will last longer, and your home will smell fresher. Each SpongeBath comes with a caddy, instructions, and an 8 ounce bottle of cleaning solution. These are made in the USA too! Order yours here.
So pencils have been the same for what, a gazillion years right? Then mechanical pencils came around…and now some genius has COLORED the leads. I’m sure teachers everywhere will find these hard to read, but for all of the fun things I want to do in my planner? These are perfect. I love writing with a pencil and I love that these are erasable. Channel your inner third grader and give these a shot. Buy two packs, your kids are going to steal them. The best part? They are available on Amazon.
Show Me Your Flair
If you got that joke, we’re best friends. If not, just read about the pens. Flair tip pens are an old stand by in the office supply world. Well, yet again, they’ve gotten a makeover. This time, in candy colors. These are perfect for writing down ALL of those activities on the calendar. Give everyone their own color and you’ll be able to see what’s happening, and when, with just a quick glance. I advice, once again, buying more than one set as these are going to be a house hold favorite.
Gone To The Dogs
So while my son was brandy new and we were having a hard time feeding him, my dogs decided they ALSO didn’t want to eat. At first we thought it was something to do with the attention the baby was getting. However, with a little research, we realized it was that the formulation of their food hand changed. I’ll save you the research that followed, but we settled on a new brand, with a little supplementation of raw food. Paul’s Custom Pet Food is not only made with high end quality ingredients, it’s local to me, (but don’t worry, they ship everywhere!). Their food is nutritionally balanced and made to keep your dog healthy. The best part is dogs go wild for it. Oh and Paul’s makes some amazing dog treats too! You don’t have to be a pet guru to feed your dog like Martha Stewart, this stuff arrives at your door. Seriously, it couldn’t be easier.
Everyone loves a good night sleep, even dogs. Well now that we have a little in our life, our dogs have started to become a little territorial. Well that put us in search of the perfect second dog bed. We found it when we came across the sheepy, made by Molly Mutt. This dog bed, filled with wool is chic on the outside, functional on the inside. The wool is 100% natural and long lasting. It prevents odors, it’s chemical free, and it keeps your pup cool in the summer and warm in the winter. These beds come in three sizes, perfect for crates. They also comes in lots of colors and patterns. You’re going to want a few 🙂 These are perfect for the person who loves their dog, but doesn’t love the look or smell of their dog and their gear in their home. I put this bed in my office and it looks like part of the decor, not a dog bed! I’m smitten with this and intend to buy these for my friends who are new pet parents. Get yours here.
Stuck On You
I discovered Stuck On You while shopping for baby gear and while they do sell baby items, they are so much more. I have fallen in love with their paper products. I was gifted a personal planner with my name gracing the cover. It’s filled with effective slots to write down my to dos, my appointments, and even long term items like Christmas shopping. It’s also filled with adorable illustrations to keep me smiling. I love that it’s tiny enough to fit into even a small purse. This is perfect for any age. I also love the tiny pencil pouch with my name on it. Again, it’s designed for kids but it’s perfect for adults as well. It fits around a binder or planner, keeping it closed and the contents inside and keeping a pen and pencil close at hand!
