Two Much of a Good Thing: Sparkling Ideas for Your Christmas Ornament Overload

The holiday season is here, and after lugging generations of ornaments down from the attic, you realize there are too many for one tree. The surplus of ornaments must serve another purpose.

It would be a Christmas sin to keep beautiful knickknacks away from the eyes of guests, yet you don’t want the tree to look like a gaudy mess. It’s not a bad thing to have too many ornaments. It’s a good thing, and way to spread more cheer.

Bowls of Holly

The tree would go nicely with a table bowl filled with complementary ornaments and seasonal elements. Place holly, evergreen branches, balls, garland, and other season essentials in an ornate bowl or pot. It’s a chic way to add season to the room, providing more focal points and ambiance.

Mailbox Greetings

The mailperson deserves a merry greeting when delivering through the season. Give them (and all visitors) a merry first impression by dressing your mailbox with wrapping paper. Hang personalized Christmas ornaments and balls from the box’s post with ribbon or thin string to accomplish a floating effect.

Two Trees

Families grow in number. So, why should those who celebrate the holidays settle on limited decor? If you have ‘too many’ ornaments, you have enough for more decor. Ask tree lot vendors for a deal, on not one, but two trees. Additionally, check sites like for savings on delivery and shipping.

Porch Presents

Arrange decorations within a large wreath and place it on the front door with a hook. Nothing provides a warmer winter welcome more than a huge wreath, dressed in ornaments, ribbons, etc.

Dressed Staircase

Wrap ribbon around the handle of the staircase and hang ornaments and balls between the rungs using string and small tacks. The little things make a huge impression and give visitors a warmer feeling during the holiday season.

Mantle Pieces

Arrange decorations across the mantelpiece. To add Christmas appeal, use artisan’s glue to drape red and green felt over wood or brick surfaces. Place angels, reindeers, and Santa figurines along with seasonal balls and ribbon.

Disco Christmas Ball

Use a large-sized Christmas ball and multi-colored ribbons to create a disco ball effect in your hallway. It’s snazzy and makes the most of an over-supply of balls and decorations.

Charming Chairs

Add Christmas charm to your everyday chairs by draping green and red blankets over them and fastening with colorful ribbons. Use blankets that are large enough to provide both comfort and eye candy to seasonal visitors.

Winter Windows

Buy fake snow and spray on windowpanes to create a winter wonderland from the inside. Add ornaments to the windowsill and spell season greetings by arranging small pieces of Christmas candies.

Customized Gifts

Add to the allure of wrapped gifts by placing ornaments on the top and sides. Many give out presents during the season, but it’s incredibly unique to receive a gift dressed in your favorite colors or featuring your name spelled in glitter. Find personalized Christmas tree ornaments online to make someone feel especially thankful this season.

Wreaths as Gifts

Buy wreaths wholesale. Rather than presents, give neighbors and family members decorative wreaths using the surplus of ornaments. This provides friends and family with the sentiments of the season and gives them something decorative to use next season.


Add season to your kitchen tablemats. Use hot glue to attach pieces of ribbon, tree, Christmas balls and other ornaments. For a personal touch, spell family member’s names or make seasonal sentiments using glitter.

Bathroom Cheer

Spread the cheer to the guest bathroom. Wrap ornate ribbon around the base and tank of the toilet. Add fake snow to the mirror. And, hang a number of balls and d├ęcor from the ceiling with ribbon. The holiday season is the time to spread cheer. So spread seasonal sentiments throughout the inside and exterior of your home. There’s no such thing as ‘too much’ holiday cheer.

Helen Moser has been decorating for the holidays she started making her own pieces out of construction paper and glitter at school. With years of experience and a keen eye for style, she often blogs about her tips and tricks for pulling together the best holiday decor for today's spaces.

Sporty 25 Oz Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle Review

Every night, I join my parents in walking. This is our only form of exercise and family bonding at the same time. Each one of us would carry a water bottle and walk for 45 minutes to an hour. It's always nice to chug cold water when you're all tired and sweaty.

I was recently sent a Sporty 25 Oz Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle with Flip Cap and Straw Sporty 25 Oz Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle with Flip Cap and Straw via Tomoson. The bottle is BPA Free, Eco Friendly, Great for Hiking, Biking, At the Gym, or Simply on the Go. Its double wall vacuum insulation keeps drinks cold for hours.

My Thoughts

The first time I laid my eyes on this water bottle, I can't help but be impressed. It looks really cool, it feels smooth and it's easy to hold. I immediately washed it and put some cold water in it. I left it at room temperature for a couple of hours and when I came back for it, the water is still cold. The nice thing about it is there is no condensation, so even if you put it inside your bag, the rest of your stuff won't get wet.

The next day, I put cold water again with some ice cubes and left it at room temperature again. I got busy with some other things and forgot about it. When I came back after 3 hours, I shook the water bottle and I can still hear the ice cubes. I opened it to check and was really surprised that the ice had not melted. This water bottle is well insulated you can be sure to have a cold drink for hours.

I haven't requested for my Koozie (cozy), yet. But I heard that if you use it, the ice cubes inside the water bottle can last for days. How cool is that? I love this water bottle and I highly recommend this.


This is a great water bottle to bring anywhere you go. The liquids are kept cold for quite a long time and you don't have to worry about getting your stuff wet inside the bag because there is no condensation. It's easy to clean and it looks really nice.

Where to buy?

Hydracentials Sporty 25 oz. Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle is available on Amazon. For more information about the product please visit their website at Beauty by Shea.

Bizarre but Effective Beauty Tips

People are used to the adage that beauty can only be achieved through buying products in the market or visiting a salon. Although these methods are true, there are also unusual beauty regimens that can be practiced in order to stay healthy and good looking. Here are some tips for you to try.

Fight pimples with toothpaste

Toothpaste can be used as an emergency treatment to pimples in the absence of creams and ointments. Apply a small amount of white toothpaste on your forefinger and apply this on that specific spot on your face. Allow this to sleep overnight and observe the change in the morning. It is said that toothpastes can dry pimples easily therefore, it serves as a useful alternative to anti-acne products.

Remove eye bags using spoon

Spoon can be used to treat bulgy eye bags. Put two teaspoons in the freezer for five to ten minutes. Place each spoon on each eye allowing the chill to penetrate into the skin. Do this until the icy feeling disappears. This method is a good alternative to cucumber and tomato.

Use honey to disinfect wounds and cuts

Honey is known to contain some anti-bacterial compounds that are why it can be used as a home remedy to cuts and wounds. Apply a small amount of honey on the cut or wound and wrap it with bandage. Honey will help fight bacteria and allow the wound to heal faster.

Keep your gadgets clean and not too close

Studies have shown that there are more germs found on the surface of a cellphone than that of a toilet bowl seat. These germs are transferred to the face especially when doing voice calls. As a result, the germs penetrate into the skin making it prone to acne, allergy and other types of skin problems. It is similarly true when using your laptop. Never use your laptop directly on your lap like that when you are playing a bingo game or when surfing, as this is harmful for the health. Keep your gadgets clean by wiping them with a clean cloth and water. Disinfectant sprays are also good but must only be done occasionally. Make sure that your phone should not be too close to your head and ears or should not be placed in the pocket as well because radiation can be transmitted.

As you can see, making oneself healthy and beautiful is not just depending on salons, spas and boutiques. It is an interesting fact that you can improve your health and physical appearance by engaging in strange tips but effective beauty regimen. All you need to do is to give it a try.

Prevent Cavities with Pre-Brushing

Sure. Brushing your teeth with toothpaste helps protect against cavities and gum disease, but if you also want to cut plaque and tartar buildup by an impressive 67 percent, start brushing your teeth for 1 minute using a dry toothbrush before adding that dollop of paste. Those dry bristles act like tiny scouring pads, sweeping away bacteria before they can latch onto teeth and produce enamel-damaging acids. To prevent gum irritation, use a soft-bristled brush.

Easy Peasy Blog

While building a website or a blog is a lot easier to techie people, it could be a struggle to a mom like me. I did have a difficult time putting up my blog seven years ago when I decided I want to have my own website. I had to wait for my friends to get online just so they could help me get my site running.

I found a new platform that allows you to build a blog in seconds and it comes with premium features, The newly found blog service gives you the best features that include discussion tools, video embedding, Facebook and Twitter integration, and calendars.

Wiggle Your Toes

When you're feeling on edge and physically spent, moving your toes or drumming your fingers on a table for 1 minute can soothe anxiety, plus make your disease-fighting white blood cells up to 24 percent more aggressive.  According to experts, fine motor control involved in these actions signals the brain to dial down the production of immunity-weakening stress hormones.

Investing at Forex is Safer than Banking

Plenty of forex businesses are now circulating worldwide and one of it is the varengold, you can visit the site at However, not all companies are for real. Take note that there are fake ones circulating as well. Thus, one should also consider determining what investments to avoid and what to trust to.

Buying Shoes for the Twins

Why is it that whenever we are looking to buy shoes for the twins at the mall there is always Limited availability in their stocks. Last night we went there to buy them each a pair of sneakers for school. We've been through a lot of shops, but we never found a design with 2 pairs of the same size. Buying two different shoes is not a good idea because no matter how much we explain to them that they share or switch, they always end up fighting. Maybe next time, when I see something and there are sizes available, I should grab them before someone else does.

Number One Glucosamine Review

Joint pains? This happens when the cartilage, ligaments and tendons around those joints become weak, making them become less flexible and elastic. Today's review is about #1 Glucosamine by Number One Nutrition. My MIL keeps on complaining about her achy joints even though she is taking some meds for her Osteoarthritis. I thought she should give this supp a try.

My Thoughts

It's been more than a week since my MIL started taking it and she's pretty happy with the results. She says she noticed a great improvement. Her left knee isn't that painful anymore and she can stand up and walk longer. She's aching to go back to walking because this is her only form of exercise and she's positive that if she continues to take the supplement, she'll be able to go back to walking daily. I'm really pleased that Number One Gluosamine is working for her.


Anyone looking to get relief from back pain, joint pains, knee surgery, arthritis or osteoarthritis should give this supplement a try. It's fairly priced because you get 240 capsules in one big bottle. Three capsules a day is all you need to become healthier and more mobile.

Where to get it?

Number One Glucosamine is available on Amazon and on the Number One Nutrition website.

Fun Apps for Kids from Kids Academy (Review)

I know I'm not supposed to allow our twins to use the tablet for a long time, but I find it hard to stop them from doing so. They are so eager to learn and they are having fun doing it. This started out last April, when I was given the opportunity to review the Preschool and Kindergarten Learning Kids Games Free For Toddlers and Preschool Children app.

It's from this app that they learned to identify and trace the letters of the alphabet. I was very surprised because they were only 22 months old and can't even speak, yet. It became more fun for them when we purchased the full pack and they were able to use all the features. The girls learned to identify the small case letters and learned about the numbers and shapes as well. I really love this app and I've been telling my friends about how our girls are learning so much from it.

Then, just recently, I got lucky again to be given a chance to review two more apps from Kids Academy -- Kids Puzzles preschool math games for girls and boys and Learn To Read and Write Kid’ Puzzles. And just as I expected, both apps are very educational. Soleil and Sophie loved them, too.

Learning how to count and identifying the numbers are the basics in math. The Kids Puzzles preschool math games for girls and boys app teaches your kids the basics through the use of tracing and handwriting. Our girls easily learned this because they had a lot of practice with the letters. They do have difficulties with number 8 though, because of the curves. But, what made it more fun is the added feature of collecting fireflies. The more numbers you trace the more fireflies you'll have in your jar. When you've filled up the jar, you can set the fireflies free and it will create a fun graphic.

As for the Learn To Read and Write Kid’ Puzzles app, the instructions were very clear, the graphics are good and the sounds are great. There are just some games that are difficult for toddlers. Like the rhyming words, for example. This teaches kids about rhymes through a maze. The dog shows a picture of an object and you have to match it with another object or animal that has the same sound. There are three other pictures to choose from. The girls found it difficult because they didn't know any of them. I guess they could improve on this to make it easier for kids aged three and under. Putting a sound on each object when touched would help kids greatly.

Overall, they super love all three apps and they're having so much fun. The letters, numbers and shapes are pronounced very clearly and that makes it easier for kids to understand and learn. The graphics are awesome and all the wonderful colors make it more engaging to kids and adults alike. These three apps are a must have for moms who have toddlers. It'll make learning so much fun!

Precisio Tweezers Review

It's hard to find a pair of tweezers that can remove the shortest and finest hairs. If you're plucking your eyebrows like my daughter does and getting rid of facial hairs like my husband does, you know what I'm talking about. I've purchased a lot of pairs already, but they all ended up being stored in the farthest part of the drawer because they are not reliable enough to hold the tiniest and yes, the finest of hairs. Today's review is about Precisio Tweezers. Let's see if it's good enough to eliminate nasty hair.

Product Description

Not Another Cheap Pair of Tweezers Designed

With You in Mind The Must Have, Tool For:
  • Ingrown hairs: You hate when they happen. You'll love it when they're gone.
  • Nose/facial hair: Yes, others can see them too. Pluck. Remove. Smile. 
  • Bikini line: Now you can get every last stray before you hit the beach. 
  • First aid: When you're family member has a splinter, you'll be the hero!

We've Saved the Best for Last All Precisio Tweezers come with a LIFETIME GUARANTEE. This means it's 100% risk-free purchase. If you break them or need a replacement, or are not satisfied, we will give you a full refund or replacement guaranteed!

My Thoughts

The tweezers look pretty cool and I love that the color is black and the finish is matte. The tips are perfect and when put together, there are no gaps. I gave it to my daughter to use and she was very surprised that she was able pluck her eyebrows easily. Then, I asked my husband to try it. He too, was amazed that it took only one pull to get the fine hair off his face.


These tweezers are very precise. All you need is one pull to get the hair out. It looks really cool and the tips are perfectly aligned.


It comes with a hefty price tag considering these are only tweezers, but come to think of it, it's really hard to look for a good pair of tweezers. I bought too many already and they're just kept in the drawer. If I have to add up all the money I used to buy them, then this will be a lot cheaper.


Overall it's not just the design that is cool. The Precisio Tweezers are easy to hold and use. The matte finish ensures that your fingers won't slip and avoid hurting or pinching your skin. If you're having a tough time finding the perfect tweezers, this is a good one to try. It may be a bit expensive, but this'll save you a lot of money later on.

TheraRelief by Thera Vita Review

Whenever one of us feels pain, I don't usually reach for OTC medicines unless told by a doctor. I would rather use a gel or cream to ease the pain. Today, I am reviewing Pain Relief Cream by Thera Vita.

Product Description

  • Safe - Includes 27 natural ingredients and is proud to be free of chemicals such as parabens. 
  • Fast - Delivers fast and long lasting relief for muscles and joints. 
  • Supports Healthy Joints - TheraRelief deals with the root of the problem by healing rather than masking the pain. 
  • Odorless - Non-greasy formula does NOT have a strong smell or leave stains. 
  • Guaranteed - It works or your money back!

My Opinion

The cream has a very faint scent to almost none once applied. I can easily compare it to sesame oil. It's rather sticky, but just on initial application. The sticky feeling disappears after a while.

I get an achy knee from time to time because of bowling and after I used the TheraRelief cream the first time, I felt relief right away. I also like that natural ingredients were used to make the cream. I feel safe that I'm not slathering a chemical laden product that could be harmful to your health.


The effect was instant. Well, for me at least. It's not mentholated, so you can walk around without people looking at you because you have that odd smell of menthol. It's easy to apply and doesn't stain clothes.


The effect doesn't last very long. It's indicated that the effect lasts for 24 hours, but you may need to reapply after a few hours.


The cream works to ease pains and aches. If you get muscle pains from working out, arthritis or any other pain, this is a good cream to try.

TheraRelief is available on Amazon.

Triple Action Vitamin C Serum by VoilaVe Review

I'm not new to using Vitamin C Serums. I love how it keeps my skin soft, smooth and hydrated. So, when I got an email asking me to try the Triple Action Vitamin C Serum, I said yes right away. This is not like the other serums that I've tried because this one has hyaluronic acid and three forms of vitamin C. No wonder they named it Triple Action Vitamin C Serum.

The serum targets these problems:

-Fine lines and wrinkles
-Age spots, discoloration, or freckles
-Bland, dull, or rough skin
-Sun damaged skin
-Dehydrated and worn skin
-Uneven skin texture and tone

My Opinion

As expected, the serum left my facial skin feeling soft and silky smooth, but what really surprised me is the fading dark spots. It's been a problem of mine for quite a while and it's only with this serum that I started seeing improvements. And in as little as two weeks! The pores seemed a bit smaller, too.

This serum is fairly priced for such a big bottle and you only need a tiny amount to cover your entire face and neck. It has a nice consistency and won't leave your face looking oily.

It's bottled really nicely and instead of the usual glass dropper that comes with most serums, this one comes with a pump. It's easier to use and it prevents spills. One pump is all you need to do your face and neck, so a little goes a long way.


If dry and dull skin, uneven skin tone, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles are your concerns; you might want to give this Vitamin C Serum a try. It's made of pure and undiluted ingredients and no fillers were added.

You can purchase the Triple Action Vitamin C Serum on Amazon.

Ozeri OW05A Prestige Electric Wine Bottle Opener Review

Today's review is about Ozeri OW05A Prestige Electric Wine Bottle Opener with Aerating Pourer and Foil Cutter.

Product Description

As seen in restaurants, the Ozeri Prestige makes opening wine bottles easy and entertaining New improved 2nd generation battery opens up to 80 wine bottles on a single charge Opens a bottle of wine in just seconds with push button ease Ultra-light cordless design features an ergonomic rubberized soft grip that fits in the palm of your hand Includes an elegant recharging base, a new aerating pourer and compact foil cutter

My Thoughts

I really like the look of this electric wine opener; the design looks very modern and the color is so cool. It's also so simple and very easy to use. The wine opener comes with a foil cutter so, you don't have to struggle anymore when you remove the foil before opening the bottle. You simply have to place it on top and let it do its job of cutting the foil. Opening the wine bottle is also a cinch. With a simple push on the button, it will remove the cork in seconds.

It' always my husband who opens the wine at home because I simply cannot do it, but with the Ozeri Prestige, I can easily open a bottle of wine.


The wine opener looks sleek and easy to use. It opens wine bottles in seconds and a single charging can open up to 80 bottles. It's light and easy to carry around and it comes with an aerator for easy pouring.


Though it opens bottles perfectly, it is quite tough to get the screw to enter the center of the cork. If you are going to use the cork again to cover the unfinished bottle, it's going to be difficult. This may not be a problem if you will not use the cork again or if you are using a reusable vacuum stopper.


Overall, I had a great experience with the Ozeri OW05A Prestige Electric Wine Bottle Opener. Although this was sent to me for free in exchange of my honest opinion, I will not hesitate to purchase it to replace my manual wine opener.

The cool tool can be purchased on Amazon. For more information about the product, please visit the Ozeri website. You may also like them on Facebook for updates.

One day, he came to a supermarket to buy rice. To his surprise, the rice was so cheap. As a result, the business was so good. Just that moment, he understood that low price is the most attractive business means. Even if there was only rice with low price, but people would think that all of goods in this supermarket were low price.

After the festival, he went back the Dongguan. He sold several small goods with very low price, such as: water, socks, towel etc. As expected, the business has gotten so good. At the same time, he also found that the wholesale dealer can give him more discount due to he need a large of quantity.

STEP 1 Make sure your skin is wet and supple – it is suggested that you use Exfolimate towards the end of your shower or bath.

STEP 2 With either the face or body tool, using gentle pressure from your fingertips, gently glide the tool along the contours of your body at a 90-degree angle. It only takes a light amount of pressure to effectively use Exfolimate.

STEP 3 As you glide Exfolimate along your face and body, check under the smooth metal edge for any lingering residue. To remove the dead skin and debris, simply run the tool under warm running water. Make sure you repeat this step once you’ve exfoliated your entire body to keep the tool clean for your next use.

Once you’ve cleaned your Exfolimate, hang the tool to dry so it is ready and waiting to gently exfoliate your skin from top to toe.

My Thoughts

Dry brushing is a little time consuming and although I wanted to do it every day, I simply can't because I have a lot of other things to attend to daily. Judging from the description, Exfolimate sounds quick and easy. The blades looked really interesting. I received two: a small one for the face and a bigger blade for the body. They are not sharp and you don't have to worry about cutting yourself when you use it.

The first time I used it on my face, I saw a buildup on the blade. I have oily skin and it made me feel good that I was able to clean it thoroughly with the blade. My face also felt smooth and soft. As for my body, I didn't see any buildup on the blade, but just the same, my skin felt smooth.


It's new and it's cool. Imagine having soft and silky smooth skin by simply swiping it all over your body. It's fairly priced, too, considering that you only need to replace this tool after a year.


While it's very easy to use, it's still time consuming for a busy mom like me. Dry brushing takes longer, but with the blades, you still have to run it all over your body. Or maybe, I just need to get used to it, so swiping would just be like normal.


This saves you a lot of money from going to the spa. It's effective at clearing the skin of dirt, debris and dead skin cells, making it soft and smooth and increasing blood flow.
