Do You Know Lampe Berger Paris? #Lampeberger

Lampe-berger
I have found my newest go-to gift. Lampe Berger is a beautiful lamp that purifies the air in your home. The lamp removes air impurities that can cause bad odor and it looks great while doing it.

From the start, the vocation of Lampe Berger Paris has always been to take care of indoor air quality. Invented way back in 1898, Lampe Berger’s system of diffusion by catalysis still has no rival today for purifying the air in your home by truly destroying unpleasant smells, while at the same time diffusing delicate indoor fragrances.

Because of the attention it pays to quality in all it’s aspects, Lampe Berger makes it a rule to diffuse only perfectly mastered and controlled substances into the air. In order to appeal to everybody’s tastes, the Lampe Berger collection now contains over a hundred different lamp models and some fifty Parfums de Maison.

The first time I used my Lampe Berger I was so surprised at how it filled my home with a gorgeous scent. The fragrance reached from the main floor to the second storey bedrooms without being a strong over powering scent. Light and noticeable throughout the home. The style of the Lampe Berger makes it an air purifier that is on display at all times. It fit right in with my decor and there are so many styles and scents to choose from. You will have no difficulty in finding one that will fit your style… or a friends style. [Read more...]

Halloween Tricks and Treats for Healthy Teeth

October is finally here! October is my favorite month. The leaves are changing, Thanksgiving is coming up and Halloween costumes are being picked out. All that candy in the house means I will be a little more vigilant with the girls brushing habits. Special new brushes are being purchased so they are excited to brush. Every little trick helps!

[Review] Dyson DC78 Animal #athomeinsider

I may have lost a chore to the family. Really I should not complain, as it is one of the chores that needs to get done but I oh so can’t stand it. I have long been known, among friends and family, as the vacuum killer. I have been going through at least one every six months. Between the dog fur and regular dirt there just was not a vacuum that could stand up to me including a central air vacuum. That is until the delivery of a package last month.

My mother was visiting when the package arrived from Home Outfitters. The package was a Dyson DC78 Animal that I was to review. My mother almost shrieked and I am pretty sure the kids did. As a review blogger I have a set order in how I do my reviews. Pictures are always first. Product in box, product being assembled, first use of shiny new product and well you get the idea. I had no chance for any of these photo ops with my new Dyson. The family ripped into the box like frenzied animals! Before I knew it the Dyson was assembled and running! I sat on my couch amazed at the sight of my daughters taking turns vacuuming the living room, stairs, entry way and even our beloved pup Miss Bella. When hubs got home from work the girls reluctantly handed the new machine over to him to try. I can truly say that I hated vacuuming… until I was finally able to take a turn with my new Dyson DC78 Animal. [Read more...]

Things I am Grateful for….

I have noticed a lot of my facebook friends have been posting “10 Day Gratitude Challenge”. Some of my friends were challenged to 5 days or even 20 days. The idea is to post something you are grateful for daily for the alloted number of days. I have not been challenged yet, and I care not to be :) BUT I thought I would do a post about what I am grateful for.

1. Family

This is an easy one for me. My husband and kids bring me joy daily and keep me busy and on my toes. I feel grateful to be able to watch my little girls grow into smart, funny, caring and charming ladies. The rest of family are supportive and perfect. I am truly grateful and appreciative.

2. Friends

I have a tight core group of great friends. I know they would be there for me at a drop of a hat, and I for them. I love my girls!

3. Health

After a heck of a health scare I am working on being a healthier version of the me before surgery! With the help of a great friend (Hi Tasha!) I am well on my way. I am grateful for my health and the good health of my family and friends.

4. My Dog

I did not know I wanted/needed her until she was here. Bella knows when I feel off and will not leave my side when I am feeling this way. I know she missed her calling as a service dog. :) And to think I did not want a dog when my hubby showed me her photo on Kijiji I knew I was in trouble. Almost three years now and I can’t think of life without her! [Read more...]
