The Holmes® Smart Air Purifier Giveaway WINNER!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Holmes Products. All opinions are 100% mine.

Remember that nifty ‘smart’ air purifier I talked about a few days ago? Well I’m back to announce to giveaway winner! Congratulations Betty – I will be emailing you more info about what I’ll need from you. I sure hope this helps with your allergies!!

So far, I’ve been in love with mine because it quietly does its job in the corner along with producing cool crisp air to breathe. Since my dog is hairless, pet dander isn’t as much of a concern as much as allergens. With a new baby joining the family in just a few weeks, I want to make sure that the house is as clean as possible.

Holmes® Smart Air Purifier

The sleek, black design on the Holmes® Smart Air Purifier makes it easy on the eyes for something that is a permanent fixture in the living room. It easily fits next to a plant or a large speaker and you hardly notice its presence while it captures up to 99.97% of airborne allergens. That’s perfect when you want to keep germs and bacteria away!

I wouldnt classify myself as a lazy person, but because I’ve got the pregnant lady waddle going on, moving around has been abit of a challenge. That’s why the ‘app’ part of this is my favorite! I can control exactly how I want my air purifier to run from the comfort of my ipad!

Giving the gift of music with JBL audio - #GiftingAudio #Cbias #shop

Isn’t it fun to gift something to someone that isn’t expecting to receive anything AND its something you know they’ll jump up and down in excitement over? Last week I had the pleasure of doing just that, Thanks to the great folks over at JBL.

The JBL Charge 2 Speakers is a small, portable wireless speaker that can connect to your phone, iPad etc, and play the music you have on your playlists. Don’t let it’s size fool you – the moment I gave it a try to see what it sounded like it and it totally blew me away! I knew right away that it was the perfect gift for my husband.

As a longtime music lover, music major in college AND avid guitarist, I knew he’d be head over heels in love with this tiny little device. I decided to surprise him with it when he got home from work the other day. I didn’t want to wrap it up, I thought it would be more fun to just say.. “I have a surprise for you!” and start it up.

I placed it inconspicuously on our decorated mantel knowing that he wouldn’t notice it right away when he got home. As soon as he sat down in his chair for his after-work unwind session, I looked over at him with a goofy smile and sing-song tone I told him, “I have a surprise for you!!” He shot me a confused look as if he was about to hear news he wouldn’t like and that’s when I started the speaker conveniently from my iPad, on the opposite side of the room from where it was located.

Blasting out “Jingle Bells” at top volume his face turned to that of surprise and shouted “What is THAT?” over the booming sound of the crystal clear music. Pointing towards the mantel at the tiny speakers, he immediately knew what it was and held it up to marvel at it. “Is this ours?” he asked with a big smile and I said, “No, its yours.. Merry Christmas!”

I scored some mega-brownie points there! That aside, it was a pleasure to give the man I love something I knew he would truly love and appreciate.

He spent the rest of his evening reading the user manual while playing his own favorites from his iPad. He learned that it was able to do so much more than just play music – it can also be a hands free speakerphone for your mobile AND charge it too!

Be sure to check it out over at – they are offering FREE SHIPPING and returns for the holiday season. You can even choose it to be another color if you wish! There’s also a handy dandy holiday gift guide put together by JBL so you can get a look at all their products based on your criteria.

WIN a CottageCare® House Cleaning Session GIVEAWAY and Enjoy a break from house cleaning for the holidays!

I received a visit from CottageCare® House cleaning in exchange for writing about their fabulous services and hosting a giveaway.

Between working, cooking, taking care of the kids, going to Christmas parties &  shopping for presents – who has time to clean? House Cleaning is still a necessary chore, and I do it as best I can – only it doesn’t always get done as well as it should. There’s only so much time in one given day, so what’s a mom to do?

Running a house is a lot like running a business, from balancing a checkbook to micro managing littles, it can be exhausting – especially when you already have a job! Slowly, I’m beginning to realize that my little business definitely needs to outsource some jobs to help me maintain sanity. The first one that comes to mind is Cleaning!

I had the pleasure of getting a visit from CottageCare® House cleaning services here in the Plano area, and I couldn’t have been more thrilled with the job they have done. I’ve had other cleaning services before that charge you a ton of money, stay for 90 minutes and give your home a lick and a prayer. Because they stay on a limited timeframe, they miss key elements that I wish would have been cleaned. CottageCare® will get on their hands and knees and polish your furniture.

PLANO / RICHARDSON TEXAS GIVEAWAY - CottageCare® house cleaning - $149 value!!

They’ll even make your bed too!

What I loved the most about my CottageCare® experience is that they stayed for as long as it took to make sure everything looked showroom perfect. They arrived on time, brought their own cleaning tools and got to work immediately. It makes me happy to know that my house will be spotless in time for my husband to get home. All I have to worry about is making something delicious in the slow cooker and he’ll be thrilled. It can have its advantages to keep your husband happy at this time of year!
