Flexi Hose 50 FT Lightweight Expandable Garden Hose | Ultimate No-Kink Flexibility – Extra Strength with 3/4 Inch Solid Brass Fittings & Double Latex…

Late spring, early summer means gardening for many of us.

Gardens require water which often means using a garden hose.

I used to despise garden hoses.

Dragging what felt like 500 feet of green snake around the yard, constantly having to unkink the kinks, leaks, geysers, burning yourself on the hot rubber, and of course the herculean task of trying to coil the beast up correctly, an exercise in supreme frustration if you’re left-handed like me.

But then a wonderful thing happened.

Some genius invented the Flexi Hose.

Now it’s a joy to water my plants with this amazing garden hose.

It’s easy to use, to move around, to put away.

Thank you, Flexi Hose inventor!

I’m madly in love!

With my new vacuum.

Here’s Why.

  1. There’s no cord to run over, plug/unplug/plug/unplug, or trip on.
  2. It’s lightweight but insanely powerful.
  3. Emptying the canister is a breeze.
  4. I can thoroughly vacuum the entire house in 30 minutes on a single charge.
  5. It has a power max mode that sucks up all the dog hair on my furniture, no problem.
  6. It has an agile head that wiggles around for smooth corners.
  7. Its low profile fits under tables and bed frames.
  8. The extremely useful attachments switch out easily and the base can be used as a handheld.
  9. Long hair doesn’t get stuck in the roller.
  10. Did I mention there’s no cord?

I know…I’m gushing…but that’s what falling in love does to you.

Sigh!

Vintorio Wine Aerator Pourer – Premium Aerating Pourer and Decanter Spout (Black)

Women and Wine…always a sensational pairing!

If the Mom in your life is a wine drinker, you can’t go wrong with this under $20 Mother’s Day gift idea!

Aerating your wine as it pours out the bottle does indeed make it taste more aromatic, especially if you are pouring value (bargain) wines. Specifically, aerating removes some of that metallic aftertaste. And, using this gadget means you can drink your wine immediately after opening a bottle.

Lots of rave reviews and taste-testing testimonials (try saying that 3 times fast) for this amazing wine lover’s gift! A 5 star plus-plus review from me!

A Kindle Unlimited Subscription

Mother’s Day is a mere two weeks from today. If the Mom in your life is a reader of eBooks, this is an AWESOME Mother’s Day gift. I would know because I’ve given myself this present for the past three years!! Here’s why it’s truly the gift that keeps on giving.

5 Reasons Why a Subscription to Kindle Unlimited Will Rock Your Mom Reader’s Socks Off!

  1. You can read a Kindle Unlimited (KU) book on any device because you can download the free Kindle app on any device. I read KU books on my laptop, iPad, and phone. BTW, my laptop is not an Apple.
  2. You can check out up to 10 items at a time and, unlike the library, there’s no waiting for a book to become available. If it’s been released and listed in Kindle Unlimited, it’s available. Period.
  3. There’s something for everyone. Fiction from all genres, Non-Fiction, Shorts, Audio Books, Magazines…so many choices. I’ve never run out of new offerings.
  4. A KU subscription is economical. If you are a voracious reader like me, this subscription saves you a ton of money. I used to have a book budget of $50-100 a month. Now I’m spending $10 a month for WAY MORE BOOKS. It’s a smoking deal especially at these discounted subscription rates.
  5. If you haven’t entered the world of eBooks yet, this is a great way to dive in. Right now, Kindle Unlimited is offering a 2 month free trial.

A Kindle Unlimited subscription is the ultimate gift for a Mom who loves to read. She’ll thank you every time she reads a new book. And if she gobbles up books like me, that’s at least 20 times a month!

Bedsure Satin Pillowcase for Hair and Skin, 2-Pack – Queen Size

Having trouble sleeping because you get too hot? Here’s an inexpensive yet luxurious solution that helps you stay cool at night and provides a couple great beauty bonuses.

I originally bought these pillowcases because of my Grandma Ann. She swore the satin texture preserved her 1950’s hairstyle and helped to prevent sleep wrinkles. Much to my delight, I found they did indeed reduce bedhead and sleep marks, but what really excited me was the fact that these pillowcases stay cool all night long. For 13 bucks, these silky covers are the bomb! Grandma wisdom rules!

Dammit Doll

Another Stress Relief product for these trying Coronavirus Pandemic days. (Kudos to my daughter Jenna for sending me one a few years back.)

The Dammit Doll is a fabric toy. It’s small enough to fling about and body slam without denting the walls or furniture. And you can muffle your shouts of rage with its tiny body. Or scream naughty words at it. The Dammit Doll doesn’t have any ears so it won’t hear you!

Release your wrath safely. Get a Dammit Doll today.

BANANAGRAMS

One of the few benefits of Coronvirus pandemic social distancing is more time for family games. One of our favorites is BANANAGRAMS. It’s like Scrabble only faster as participants race to build their crosswords. Great for all ages, including school kids. This game brings a lot of laughter too, as it’s hilarious to yell out banana phrases like, “SPLIT”!

THERMA Comfort Neck Wrap

Because the Coronavirus Pandemic is causing tremendous stress, I’m featuring another comfort promoting, pain relieving product this week. This product is also another item often covered under an HSA (Health Savings Account). If you don’t have an HSA, it’s affordable at $29.88. This product combines weight, temperature (hot or cold), and aromatherapy. I use it multiple times, EVERY SINGLE DAY. At my desk. At night while I’m sipping a glass of wine. When I first wake. After wrestling with my lab on a long walk. It’s one of my most favorite relaxing things EVER!

Snailax Massage Cushion

Does your body ache? Can you feel knots of tension in your back? Here’s a tried and true back pain relief solution.

STRESS literally hurts our bodies. Like many women, my stress frequently manifests in my neck, shoulders, and upper back. Sometimes I can cajole or barter with my husband to give me a back rub. Occasionally, I’ll splurge for a massage, but most often I use this miracle apparatus to iron out those super tight areas. 10 years of chair massages and this baby is still going strong…talk about a great value! Note: if you have an HSA, it may be a covered medical purchase.

I share, I care.

Lily’s Chocolate Bars

Is there any good sugar free chocolate out there? 

Yes, YES!

Lily’s is high quality chocolate minus the cane sugar. Stevia is the sweetener so these delectable bars can work for diabetics and those following a low-carb eating plan. I generally consume 1/4 of a bar in a sitting. That’s all I require IF I let each square melt in my mouth…ever…so…slowly.  If you emulate my daily serving size, this variety 12 pack will last you 48 delicious days.
