This Compact Electric Blower is Perfect For Any Season

I love coming across great gadgets that can be used outdoors. I’m a big fan of doing yard work, whether it’s landscaping, mowing the lawn, or gardening. It’s relaxing for me to sit outside, sip on some fresh lemonade, turn my favorite Pandora station on from my phone, and enjoy the sunlight warm on my back. You almost forget you’re doing work at all!

I found this compact electric blower among the new spring collection on the Solutions website. I like that it has heavy duty power yet is light enough to easily menuever and carry around. This can be used to clean out gutters, blow leafs, blow light snow out of the way, and clear out grass clippings or hedge trimmings.

What are some of your favorite lawn and outdoor tools?


Cabela’s Has It All


Have you ever been to a Cabela’s store? When I went to one I was both surprised and impressed. I was surprised because I didn’t expect a sporting goods store to amaze me when I don’t have a lot of interest in it in the first place.

Cabela’s has just about everything an outdoors lover would be interested in. They have gear for hunting, fishing, camping, shooting, boating, as well as auto and ATV, clothing, footwear, home and cabin products and supplies and other hobbies like metal detecting and bird watching.

If you don’t have a store near you, don’t worry! They have everything available online and have a deal right now that you pay only $5 for shipping if you spend over $99. Also make sure you check out their web exclusive specials to save big!


Men’s Shoe Collection at DSW



Have you checked out the great selection of men’s shoes at DSW? There aren’t a lot of shoe stores that have a great selection of men’s shoes so when you find one make sure you make the most out of it! DSW is one of these stores. They have boots, comfort shoes, Oxfords and other lace ups, sneakers, athletic shoes, work and safety shoes, sandals, boat shoes, slippers and so much more.

DSW is a great place to shop, both online and in store because they have SO many shoes including name brands for a fraction of what you would pay for them in other stores. Make sure you sign up for DSW rewards, too. It’s free to do, you’ll save a ton of money by getting $10 reward certificates when you build up points with purchases.

Cool Baby Clothes For Girls and Boys



I love coming across websites with a great selection of clothes for kids and babies (bonus if they have “tween” clothing, too). It’s hard to find great clothes for kids this age. They seem to be constantly growing (and not to mention making a mess of their clothing…I think my washing machine is almost always running).

I found this company and website called Naartjie Kids. I’m glad I did! They have a great selection of clothes for babies, kids, and “tweens”. I think they carry really cool baby clothes for both girls and boys. They also are having some great sales right now that are definitely worth checking out. With each $50 purchase, you can get a coupon for $25 off of a future $50 purchase! This offer ends on February 26th, so make sure to check it out soon if you want to be a part of this great deal.

Thinking Outside of the Box: Man Bouquet Time!

Who says men don’t like bouquets as well? Just because most bouquets are made of flowers doesn’t mean that it can’t be changed up and made “manly” for a man gift!

I love the idea of a man bouquet. They have tons of great ideas on Pinterest and Google for what to put in your man bouquet. My suggestion is to personalize it as much as possible. If he likes to gamble from time to time, throw in some lottery tickets or scratch offs. If he likes to enjoy a nice cold alcoholic drink, add some of those “shooter” alcohol containers (I think they’re an ounce and a half each and only cost about 99 cents). My guy likes to golf so I plan on filling the base with golf tees and adding a pack of golf balls.
