Rhodia has been around since 1934 making notebooks for all your writing needs. I got to review a few of the notebooks and they are Pad No 12 which is in orange with black letters on the front along with being Graph and the pad has 80 sheets which fits perfectly in your pocket as it is only 5 by 5. The next one I got was Rhodia Pocket No 82 Dot which has a coated cover and cardboard backing this has 40 sheets and 7.5by 12 and perfect for waiters or waitresses. The last one I got was Bloc Rhodia No14 lined with 80 sheets and 11 by 17.

My Opinion: I really like all the pads they can fit perfectly in my pocket or purse great for drawing, taking orders on, school work and more I really like them a lot and being part of the Orange and Black collection is great too.

They also have spiral pads and note pads, dot everything and so much more.

Cool Ideas For Kids Crafts with Balloons

You find balloons all over the place, from kids' parties to restaurants and shopping malls. Some people love them, and some people are deathly afraid of them. If the thought of them bursting doesn't bother you, you'll probably be interested to know that there are lots of fun crafts you can do with them. Kids will have tonnes of fun using balloons to make things, from balloon animals and paper mache to simply decorating an ordinary balloon to make it more attractive. Here are some neat ideas for balloon crafts that you can try the next time you have some art time with your kids.

Paper Mache

One thing for which people have been using balloons for a long time is to mold paper mache. Blow up a balloon and layer your paper mache (paper dipped in glue and water) over the balloon. When it's dry, you can pop the balloon, and you have a nice, round object to decorate. Kids can have great fun painting faces on them.

Balloon Animals

Balloon animals can be difficult to get the hang of, but they're incredible fun for anyone who has the knack for it. You need some good quality balloons that are strong and that you can blow up and manipulate without them breaking. There are all kinds of things you can make with them, from animals to hats. Get a small pump to help you blow them up if it's a bit too much effort for little lungs.


Decorate Them

There's so much you can do to make a balloon more fun just by adding some decoration. You could glue things to them, from pompoms to stickers. Or you could splash flecks of paint at them to make them more colorful. And it's not just the outside that you can decorate. Use latex balloons or other ones that you can see into and put confetti glitter inside to make them even more fun.

Make a Surprise

You make a special surprise for someone just with a few balloons, a box and some string. Have your kids blow up some balloons and tie some string to them. Then attach the line to the bottom of a box, push the balloons inside and close the lid. You can present it to someone as a gift and they'll get a lovely surprise when they open it up. This idea is great for any occasion, from Mother's Day or Father's Day to birthdays.

Make Can Drums

Balloons don't have to be inflated to be fun. If you want to recycle some of the materials in your home, this project is easy to make with just some tin cans and some pieces of an old balloon. Stretch the balloon over the top of the empty can and secure it in place with some rubber bands. They're great fun to tap on, and they don't make as much noise as a real drum set!

Attach LEDs

For something extra special, get some battery-powered LED lights. Pop one inside a balloon before you blow it up and secure it in place. You'll get a lovely glowing effect.

5 Great Valentine's Day Gift Ideas To Surprise Your Valentine


With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, you need to start thinking about what sort of gifts you’re going to buy. Giving your partner something special as a gift goes a long way to showing them how much they mean to you. After all, Valentine’s Day is about spending time with your loved ones.

You are not restricted when it comes to gift ideas. Perhaps you’ll go for something fun and practical like garden gloves. Maybe you’ll go for something more traditional like chocolates. You need to have a think about the kind of thing that will appeal to your partner.

Here are five great gift ideas to help you out:

1. Romantic Dinner

What better way to show your partner how much they mean to you than by cooking them a romantic dinner. Go all out for Valentine’s Day. It’s a good bet they will have a favourite dish so try to whip that up if you can. You can go all out and do a three-course bonanza complete with wine and candlelight. Dinner is already quite a personal and romantic setting already. But by doing a special Valentine’s dinner you’re showing extra thought and romance. It also means you don’t have to go through the stress and expense of trying to book a restaurant for Valentine’s Day.

2. Sexy Underwear

If you’re feeling particularly naughty, you may want to consider buying some sexy underwear. Now, you have a few choices available here. You could either buy your partner some sexy underwear for them. Or your gift could be you wearing brand new sexy underwear! Whichever choice you go with it’s sure to end in a frisky evening. You can find plenty of underwear ideas and choices online or in certain shops. You may have spoken with your partner in the past about particular pieces of underwear that take their fancy. Maybe you can try to get a specific piece to blow their mind!

3. Aftershave/Perfume

One of the Valentine’s gifts you just can’t go wrong with is perfume or aftershave. Everybody enjoys wearing scents. And from your perspective it’s important that your partner smells good. Around Valentine’s Day, you may find there are some limited special offers on fragrances so you should hunt around. This is a great gift to get as fragrances can be expensive but everybody enjoys wearing them. Find out what your partner’s favourite fragrance is and try to get ahold of that one. You could even be sneaky and buy them a scent that drives you wild!

4. Jewellery

A classic gift to help you say ‘I love you’ this Valentine’s Day is a piece of jewellery. There are so many options open to you for pieces of jewellery. You might want to visit for selections of earrings and necklaces. You might decide you want to buy a watch or a ring. There are a lot of jewellery choices. Most stores or websites do Valentine’s jewellery sets. And you can often pick some up for a reasonable price. Think of the look on your partner’s face this Valentine’s Day when you present them with a beautiful piece of jewellery.

5. Flowers

Flowers are the old reliable Valentine’s gift. Nothing says ‘I love you’ better than a huge bouquet of red roses. You can complete the bouquet with a card and personal message for a romantic extra touch. If your partner doesn’t like roses then there are plenty of other flowers you can choose. They are bound to have a favourite kind of flower. Find out what it is and order a nice bouquet. If you want to be extra romantic, you could always arrange to have the flowers delivered to their workplace.

Purex Power Shot Review with Coupon Giveaway

Purex has released a new detergent called Power Shot and how it is different is you open the cap and flip the bottle upside down to deliver a 50% more stain fighting, concentrated super dose of detergent so you can take the guess work out of pouring the detergent and get the right amount to save money and not make a mess; obviously if the clothes are real dirty and you are doing a large load you would want two shots. And  it comes in two scents Mountain Breeze and Natural elements Linen &Lilies.

My Opinion: I think I am guilt at putting a little more detergent then I need to in my laundry loads. This Power Shot detergent from Purex is easy to tip upside down and add to your laundry. The Mountain Breeze scent I got was also a pleasant smell and I enjoyed my laundry routine so much.

Fuse Chicken Plug Dock and The Ledge

Fuse Chicken offers many technology products in the every changing world of technology. I got to review Plug dock which transforms your existing Ipone cord into an awesome dock which mounts right to the wall and the cord is all wrapped up neatly around it. It comes in the color white and also being just a dock helps keep the environment friendly by reducing electronic waste.
     I also got The Ledge which is made from natural African Padauk hardwood dock for IPhone 5, 6 and 6plus that currently does not have a case. Your phone sits neatly on top for charging and a place to stash your phone as well. Again you use your own cord to prevent electronic waste.

My Opinion: I really like both the products the Plug Dock is easy to take in your purse to charge on the go and The Ledge is more for being at home charging at night or in the morning before work. I like that Fuse Chicken is being environmentally friendly and reducing electronic waste.

Besides what I got they have Bobine, ToGoDock and more at

The Reagan's The Legacy Endures

On DVD from Image Entertainment is The Reagan's: The Legacy Endures. This movie was written and directed by Robert Kline. This movie runs 91 minutes and is about Ronald Wilson Reagan a small boy from Illinois with big dreams when he rises to public life as a sports broadcaster and then a star of television and films. But it was during his years in Hollywood as a president of the Screen Actors Guild that he discovered two passions of his life; politics and his soul mate Nancy Davis. Together Ron and Nancy forged a legacy as the first couple of California and then the United States of America as they led the charge for the rebirth of conservative values. This candid and intimate portrait captures the Reagan’s inspiring journey, historic partnership and touching love story.

My Opinion: I really enjoyed watching this movie and made me think how he impacted the United States as the president and how he made a difference when he was in office. I love the love story between him and Nancy. This is a great film for all to see.

Nice By Design Goldie and Spike

We all have cords that seem to just get in the way rather it gets tangled up and becomes a mess or just to many of them for our electronics. I recently found nice By Design which helps simplify your cords. I got to review Goldie which is for Iphones and Ipods the charger I go the color pink they also have orange, green, light blue, magenta and more. They secure your USB docking cable to Apple power adaptors so cable & charger stay together.  The intuitive design will keep your cables tangle free when shoved in a bag, pocket, or purse and can shorten and organize when plugged in the wall.  Goldie can also be used as a charging pedestal.

I also got Spike in the color Magenta and this is for Apple Iphone charger and they become secure to your USB docking cable to Apple power adaptors so cable & charger stay together.  The intuitive design will keep your cables tangle free when shoved in a bag, pocket, or purse and can shorten and organize when plugged in the wall.
My Opinion: I really like colors and designs the way I can have my own personal colors and style is perfect for me as white and bland can be so boring. These work nice and hold the cord in place and I like them so much.

    The Piping Gourmets

    I recently got to review The Piping Gourmets and went to my local Whole Foods to pick up the products which is located in the freezer section of the store. They were on the very top shelf and being a mere 4 feet 11 inches I had to ask for help so I would not have to climb up and then being miss grace fall , the gentleman was happy to do so. They had the whoopie pies in chocolate cake with raspberry frosting and chocolate cake with vanilla frosting. What sets these apart from other whoopee pies as they are Gluten Free, Kosher, Dairy Free, Wheat, Soy, Eggs, Peanuts and Tree Nuts Free, Non-GMO and Vegan as well.  They come in a package of four as well you just thaw and enjoy.

    My Opinion: I really enjoyed the flavor of them and being in Maine whoopies pies are in every store you go to and these being vegan and made with better ingredients does not sacrifice the flavor one bit. I would definitely recommend these and will be buying these again.

    The other flavors they offer are vanilla cake with vanilla frosting, chocolate cake with mint frosting, chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and more at
