bObi Classic Robotic Vacuum Cleaner and Mop



As a busy mom to spunky Miss Cupcake I find it difficult to keep my hard floors and area rugs squeaky clean.  She enjoys digging in the dirty and playing at the beach, which certainly does not make my job simple.  To be honest, I simply do not have the time to vacuum and mop daily. Thus, my love for the bObi Classic Robotic Vacuum Cleaner and Mop was born.  I had been eyeing this robotic vacuum for months and finally decided it was time to give it a try.  While my expectations where quite high, the bObi Classic managed to exceed them!  As soon as I opened the box I was impressed by the sleek white design.  I pressed the GO! button on the remote, and it immediately began to zoom around the room.  




I keep my bObi Classic Robotic Vacuum Cleaner and Mop on the convenient charging station in the living room.  It is set to automatically clean the doors every day and returns itself to the charger.  My floors have never looked better, and I can relax while my bObi Classic does all the work!





There are so many things I adore about this robotic vacuum, but here's a quick run down of the features:


The bObi Classic Robotic Vacuum Cleaner and Mop effortlessly keeps dust and sand from accumulating on our floors.   It is obviously a high quality vacuum which I expect to be enjoying for years to come.  My floors have been so clean lately that we are revisiting the idea of getting Miss Cupcake the "small, fully dog" that she has been begging for (which I have forbidden in the past because I could not handle the idea of fur on the floors).  A bObi Pet is also available with increased vacuum power and prolonged battery life.





Bamboo Fiber Bread Box with Cutting Board Giveaway



I have been searching for the perfect bread box for some time now.  It needed to be small enough to keep on my rather limited counter space and large enough to be functional.  The moment I spotted this Clean Dezign bread box with cutting board lid I knew it was what I wanted.  This bread case is made out of a unique material called BAMBOO FIBER which is hard, durable, light weight and eco friendly.


The bamboo lid doubles as a cutting board with grooved crumb catchers to keep your countertops clean and save space. It also rests on the container to allow easy lifting.  Not only is it convenient to have a cutting board easily accessible, but I also love the farmhouse touch it added to my kitchen.



This bread box measures 15 3/4 x 9 x 5" with the lid on. The base for storage is 15 x 8 x 4". It is big enough to store and keep your items fresh including bread, bagels, buns hot dogs and more - small enough to save counter space

I decided to add a decal to my Clean Dezign bread box, and I am really happy with the final look!



I love this Clean Dezign breadbox so much that I will be giving away THREE.

Dorel Living Vivienne Twin Daybed



The Vivienne Twin Daybed by Dorel Living will add an elegant touch to any child's room. Bright and glamorous, this daybed features subtle chic details such as turned wood feet, a full panel inset headboard with a sophisticated arched top panel, and clean lines in a white finish, all of which are sure to make a fashion statement in your child’s room.  This white daybed looks gorgeous with the navy blue (with a few pops of pink) decor theme that is currently in the works at our house.


While this daybed is classy enough to go in any room, I love how convenient it is for a child to slip into at bedtime.  It is low to the ground which makes it easily accessible to little ones and less of a risk of injury in case of an accidental tumble (yes, we've had a few of those around our house).

More than just a pretty face, this daybed is capable of accommodating the Vivienne Trundle (sold separately) allowing it to be an ideal storage solution. Versatile and adaptable to any age, the Vivienne Twin Daybed by Dorel Living is the perfect addition to your child's room.  While this bed is lightweight and easy to move, it is truly a high quality piece of furniture.  I expect it to last for many, many years!

DIY Multipanel Mirror / Window Pane


I recently asked my dear hubby if he would build a decorative window pane to hang in our living room above my new Convenience Concepts French Country Hall Table.  He carefully listened to my many specifications. Most importantly, I wanted it to have a modern look unlike the many rustic window panes that I had seen on Pinterest.  After giving my dear hubby the desired measurements, he set to work. However, halfway through his project plans I spotted the multipanel mirrors on the Pottery Barn website.  Dear hubby graciously tweaked his plans accordingly.

After heading to the store to grab supplies, he set to work.  The entry building project took less than a couple hour for my dear hubby to finish. Next, I painted it with FolkArt Chalk Paint in White Adirondack and finished it with the FoldArt Clear Wax.  I had originally planned to purchase Annie Sloan chalk paint for several upcoming projects, but I was so impressed with the quality and price of the FolkArt Chalk Paint that I will certainly be buying more of this!  

I simply adore the finished project! To be honest, I like it much more than the $300+ Pottery Barn version.  I plan to hang a small wreath over the multi panel mirror/window pane, and I am still deciding how I want to decorate the Convenience Concepts French Country Hall Table (which I am sure will change often- I already have plans for it as soon as I can get away with setting out my beloved pumpkins).
