The Batter Thickens made Biscoff Butterscotch Chocolate Chip Blondies.

Beth Cakes features a Butterscotch Brownie Pie. How different!

Today’s Nest has a recipe for Banana Butterscotch Blondies.

American Heritage Cooking swears her Butterscotch Brownies are better than chocolate ones.

Are you traveling to someone home for Thanksgiving? Did you know that over 94 million Americans travel more than 50 miles from home for Thanksgiving? Maybe a faraway relative or friend is hosting a Thanksgiving dinner this year. After all it is there turn to do all the cooking! Make your host smile with a luscious candle from Diamond Candles.

I love the way Diamond Candles smell. My favorite scent is the Pink Macaroon. The aroma fills my entire home. I have had several Diamond Candles over the past year, which I usually buy when they are having a really good special. I might buy 2 or 3 at a time. Besides the fantastic long lasting aroma, the fun of the Diamond Candle is finding what is inside. There is a ring, that could be worth up to $5000! It is like grown up cereal box prizes!

DC Ring

I love the collection of rings I have from my Diamond Candles. There are a few beauties but I am still searching for the $5000 one. Something new they created is RingReveal. There is a code inside the RingCandle to enter on the Diamond Candles site. You could win a fancy ring up to $5000. Record your spin and reaction and if you are lucky, you get to choose your ring. I will be looking for my code in all my new candles.

The Fall collection is available now. Rich Autumn inspired scents can fill your home. Pumpkin Chai, Candy Corn, Gingerbread Latte, Cinnamon Pinecone are just a few to choose from. Courtesy of Diamond Candles, I received a Holiday Scent not yet on the site – Candy Cane. The inviting fresh aroma of peppermint is delightful. It smells good enough to eat. I love having candy canes around for color and munching. The Diamond Candle reminds me of my favorite holiday goodie!

DC Candy Cane

One wish I have for Diamond Candles, put the ring pack lower in the candle. It does not take too long to burn the candle and reach the ring. After I melt one for a while, I will dig the ring out. Once I have done that, I usually stop burning that candle. It still smells as awesome but the anticipation of something sparkly is gone. I have a shelf of partially burned candles that I alternate to keep burning until gone. Then of course I have to buy a new one for more bling!

Diamond Candles make great gifts for anytime or the holidays. With the fabulous fragrance choices there is one for every home! Each RingCandle sells for $24.95. Buy a few for gifts and watch the smiles!

Dezign With a Z – Coat Rack Wall Stickers

August 2, 2013

Comments Off on Dezign With a Z – Coat Rack Wall Stickers

DCBanner

 

Dezign with a Z

One of the most interesting and easy ways to add décor to your walls is with designer wall stickers. New designs and ideas are coming all the time. I found a unique wall sticker idea – A Coat Rack Wall Sticker from Dezign With a Z.

The evolution of designs in the vinyl art is astounding. Check out the Modern category and you will see what I mean. There are many dots, frills, graphics, chevrons and colors to really make any wall pop! No more plain boring painted walls – make a focal point easily with all types of decals.

A unique idea I discovered at Dezign With a Z, A Coat Rack Wall Decal! I never thought of that. Take any of the Wall Decal designs and simply add the included hooks for a creative and useful wall rack. Ingenious! I fell in love with the Lamp Post Wall Decal Coat Rack. I love the classic look! It is a pretty good size too! I chose the brown color to match my bedroom décor.

Installation was quick and not complicated at all. I was having to keep rubbing in certain areas to get the decal to adhere to my wall. I think it was the type of paint giving me issues. It took me less than 30 minutes to have the decal in place! It looks great! Now my hubby has a place to hang his t-shirt instead of tossing it on the floor. I have an idea in mind for one of the other coat racks – The All in One Whiteboard Coat Rack Mirror sticker would be perfect in the entry way. Check your looks on the way out the door and add any reminders for the day. Grab your coat, bag or whatever all in one handy spot! Love it!

Dezign With a Z is the #1 Wall Décor Specialist. With all the fantastic designs, it is easy to see why.  Browse the wide selection. The prices are very reasonable for the high quality materials they use. The shipping is fast. You can order directly online. The ordering process is easy with all the options right on the screen to customize your decal the way you want it. Choose a color, size and other options depending on the decal.

Just a few categories of wall decals available:

Trees

Nursery

Sports

Mirrors

Clocks

Glow in the Dark

and many more!

There is a design for every room, every office, every space you can think of.

Airwick: New National Park Collection

April 21, 2013

Comments Off on Airwick: New National Park Collection

DCBanner

airwick logoMy family likes to go camping. We have visited many National Parks in our travels. I am so excited to tell you about the new Airwick National Park Collection of fragrances for your home.

Airwick spent countless hours at many National Parks in order to bring the essence of their unique aromas to your home. Think about it, different regions and parks certainly have different smells! The pine in the redwoods, the brush in the deserts, the tropical scents of the islands and more.

I have been enjoying a few of the National Park Collection Limited Edition fragrances courtesy of Airwick.

national park collection

Grand Canyon: Cactus Flower and Warm Breeze – It has a wonderful light floral scent. It reminds me of the wild flowers and the desert cactus blossoms.

American Samoa: Sweet Coconut and Island Palms – I can picture walking down the middle of a coconut grove or waiting for a coconut ice cream.

Denali: Soft Cotton Grass and Spring Air – I like the refreshing clean scent of Denali. It reminds me a being in a big green field with a light breeze blowing.

Hawaii: Exotic Papaya and Hibiscus Flowers – My Favorite! When I visited Hawaii, one of my impressions was of the fantastic tropical scents of the flowers. The hibiscus were every where! This fragrance takes me back to my trip.

hawaii airwick

Fill your home with the scents straight from nature. The Airwick National Park Collection can be found at major retailers. Look for the full range of products including Scented Oils, Scented Candles, Reed Diffusers and Freshmatic Auto Spray Refills.

SO_HawaiiThe Scented Oils is my choice. I like the warmer which allows me to control the strength of the fragrance.

Happy Boxes from Tatutina – Giveaway (closed)

April 4, 2013

Comments Off on Happy Boxes from Tatutina – Giveaway (closed)

DCBanner

tatutina logo

Happiness is a box full of dog toys. That is if you are a dog. My two fur babies have a lot of toys. Too many – I guess I should stop buying them new ones. What we have here is a storage problem.

DSCF0054 (2)

The fun spirited folks at Tatutina have the answers for adorable storage! Tatutina has always been a favorite of mine with all the bright colors and many styles. I still use my recipe box I got a few years ago. I am excited to share with you the newest product: The Happy Boxes!

Tatutina Happy Boxes

The Happy Boxes come in two different sizes, A Square Keepsake Box and an Open Cube Box. You can choose from three color schemes plus add a letter to customize it!

I came up with a W for my two dogs. It is a Woof Box. A box for both my dogs to share (although my little black dog thinks everything is his and does not share). A Woof Box makes me happy! I appreciate the cuteness of the “w”. I love the green polka dots! Plus the size of the box is perfect for sitting on a shelf. They still have too many toys, way too many to fit in the box, but this will allow me to sneak some of the toys out. I will bag them and save them for another day. Two Paws up for the Woof Box! The toys don’t stay in there long, but it makes me smile every time I put them back in.

DSCF0057DSCF0060 (2)

The Open Cube Box would be a great addition to a child’s room! I think some crafters would also love having one in the craft room. The uses are endless. The Square Keepsake box comes with a top!

Tatutina boxes are made of durable wood and painted with non-toxic paints! The fun is in the colors! Some of my favorite categories are the Recipe boxes, Jewelry boxes and the newest lineup – Fun Desk Organizers. Tatutina products make great year round gifts at reasonable prices too! Put a little Tatutina whimsy in your life!
