Optical Genius! Ozeri Floating Liquid Beverage Glasses???

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

                                      Ozeri Serafino Double Wall Insulated Beverage and Coffee Glasses


Ozeri makes this really cool glassware that looks like it's got floating liquid in it. I've never seen a glass like it before, but it's pretty amazing.  The wrap around contour makes it very easy to hold, and the shatter-resistant glass is stronger than your average bear (or average glass, I should say). It's designed to keep condensation off of the outside if you have a cold drink, and keep your hands cool if you're holding a hot drink.

Designed to keep your hands cool when hot beverages are inside,
and create no condensation on the outside, with cold ones.

The tgenerous 12 oz. size lets you hold quite a bit of liquid at one time. I used it for my grape juice this morning, and it was an excellent glass by all standards. One of those little things in life that just makes you happy. :)


You can get this set on Amazon for just $19.95 for (2).

The 2-glass set sells on Amazon for just $19.95. It's dishwasher, microwave AND freezer-safe. They come with a 1 year warranty.

I was very happy with my glasses, but not a bit surprised. I always love Ozeri products. You can learn more about them by visiting the website and/or Amazon. You can also follow them on Facebook.

Bevan LED Work Light with #Giveaway

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.
You can order this Bevan light from Amazon for under S20!

There are a lot of reasons to use a work light. You can use it when you're camping, use it when you need to work on your car, when you've lost something outside and need to find it, or even when the electric goes out.
This little Bevan Work Light is a beauty because it's so versatile. It has a magnet and a hook for hanging. I love that it has a magnet, this is the first one I've seen that does. It also has 2 LED lights and it runs on 4 'AAA' batteries (so no need to find an electrical outlet). 

We haven't had a reason yet to use ours (knock on wood), but it's nice to have it in the house just in case. We have turned it on after dark to test it, and it lights everything right up, just like it's supposed to do. It also touts a long light life, and when you have an emergency light, that's exactly what you need. 

This light is affordable too, ringing in at just under $20. Sounds like a great holiday gift idea. I'm keeping it in mind. There's a lot of guys in this family and they always have a need for a work light. :)

The specs from the website are below. You can learn more or order one for yourself by visiting the Amazon page.

FabKids: A Children's Clothing Subscription and So Much More

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

FabKids Striped Hooded Top

Every month I tell you about the fabulous kids' clothing subscription that FabKids offers, and it really is terrific. I have friends and family who signed up to get an outift every single month and they love it. I'm going to tell you a little bit about the subscription, but I'm also going to tell you about other options they have to offer.

How the VIP Subscription Service Works

The subscription service is practical, helpful, and fun (who wouldn't love to have a new outfit delivered to their door once a month?). It's easy too. Each month you are charged the price of one outfit to your credit card. The credit for that outfit then goes into your account so you can pick out an outfit of your choice, at your leisure, any time you would like. The subscription service is free. The montly charge (if you decide you want to make a purchase that month) is $29.95. 

You don't have to make a purchase though!! The choice is always yours. Simply opt out by the 5th of the month to decline (if you are so inclined). Easy peasy. You can cancel your subscription at any time.

All new VIP Members are eligible to take advantage of the Buy One Get One Free outfit deal for their first purchase.

You Can Make Individual Purchases!

FabKids sells tee-packs like this cool set you see above.

Yes, FabKids is an amazing subscription service, but they're also so much more. Did you know that at FabKids you can make any purchase, any time? They have a lot of great mix-and-match pieces, great shirt duo kits like the one you see above, dresses, pants, shorts, and even shoes!

FabKids sells pants. These Classic Cargo Pants come in different colors
and they have nice, roomy pockets on the front.

The pants are always the best quality!! I have had four kids, and I honest to goodness have never found pants I like more for kids, than the ones they sell at FabKids. Not only are they designed to be stylish and look good, but they're also extremely durable and they wear and wash well. The Classic Cargo Pants you see in the picture above are nice and roomy, but they're heavy-duty too...which means they're comfortable and they're going to last. You get more for your money with any of the FabKids pants. I would buy and/or recommend them to any one, any day.

Like all FabKids selections, the clothes are ready-to-play, roomy and the move well with your busy child.
Like all FabKids selections, the clothing I am showcasing today is made to play. My son is busy and all over the place (I like that about him). His FabKids clothes don't distract him, and they allow him to move!! They also have fun options like the hood you see above, or the color patch skull you see below.

The Patch Skull Graphic Tee is perfect for Fall (and Halloween!).
The Patch Skull Graphic Tee is perfect for this time of year when people are breaking out the Halloween selections. More of a cute skeleton than a scary one, but still a skeleton (the first makes mom happy, the second thrills the boy ;) ),  this shirt takes your kiddos right into the holiday season with flair.

FabKids has shoes!
If you haven't seen them yet, FabKids is now also offering a nice selection of shoes for both boys and girls. My son loves these ColorBlock High Top Sneakers because he thinks they look cool. I love them because they're machine washable and they have shoe laces but they don't really tie!!

My son has several new pairs of shoes and he skips over all of them to get to these, so they must be comfy too.

This picture shows my son in his new FabKids shirt, with a pair of pants he got from FabKids a long time ago.
They look great together, right? Mixing and matching is easy with the FabKids clothing line.

In the picture above, my son has the shirt from the tee pack I described above (note: you can buy the shirts as separate pieces too), mixed with a pair of FabKids jeans we ordered a loooong time ago. They look great, right? And they've been worn and washed a lot. Like I said, those pants really hold up.

We love the FabKids monthly subscription service, but we appreciate the option of being able to order separates when we need them too. FabKids does a great job at meeting all of our clothing shopping needs. I'll be including them in the Mail4Rosey Holiday Gift Guide this year too, because I think the subscription service is a great gift idea.

You can learn more about FabKids by visiting their website. You can also follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.

Metal Prints from Collage.com: Think You Can't Make Your Pictures More Exciting? Think Again!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

This, while pretty, sooo does not even do the colors justice.
On the metal these pictures just pop so pretty, glossy and bright!
Collage.com makes these amazing, amazing metal prints that really, really give a new spin on how you can display your photos (yes, it's exciting enough to make me repeat my words). The trouble is, I love them so much I always end up making them for everyone else and giving them away (and yes, I've done that this time as well). :)

The Metal Prints at Collage.com come in many different sizes
and can hold anywhere from 1-300 pictures.

Why? They make amazing gifts, plain and simple.

I selected photos from a vacation my friend took and put them on the metal print for her.
She hasn't seen it yet. I'm trying to decide whether to gift it now or Chritmas.
Before collage.com, I'd never heard of metal prints, but when I did learn about them (last year) I fell in love, instantly and I fell in love hard. This really is a fresh new way to display your cherished and favorite photos.

There are edit options that are very user-friendly.
You can move your pictures wherever you want, or use (and re-use) the random selection button too.

THIS is definitely going in my gift guide. It's the first year I've agreed to have one, and I'm getting so excited about it. I will only be putting in items that I truly recommend for gift giving...products I believe in and love. Anything I've gotten from collage.com fits that bill, but nothing more so than these prints. I can't stress enough how clear, glossy and vibrant they are in person. Another big perk? You can wipe these down for cleaning, and not worry about ruining your picture(s)!

The photos automatically adjust each time you add another, to resize themselves appropriately.
Have you ever seen photos printed on metal? If so, then you know why I'm ranting and raving (in a good way). And if not, then you've got to see it to believe it! :)

Check out the site to learn more about these, and to learn about all of the other great items they offer. You can also follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.

Winner Announcement



Congratulations to the following winners, all of whom were randomly selected by Rafflecopter:

Two winners get to choose an Otterbox Case, Amy and Barrie.

One winner gets a One Step Ahead trampoline! Shannon

Magic on a Mug (Collage.com)

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


The mugs come in a variety of colors and sizes.
The photos appear when you pour hot liquid in the mug.

I own one coffee cup. Just one. But it's a beauty, and a great way to start up my new collection. Created at Collage.com, this 11 oz. mug (there is a 15 oz. option too) comes in many different colors, and in addition to your favorite beverage, it also holds a bit of magic.

Use one photo or add a bunch!

Magic you say? Yes! When the hot liquid is poured into the cup, photos you have hand selected and placed on the easy-to-use online template begin to show up on the mug. The hotter the liquid, the more clear the pictures.

The photos dissapear as the mug cools down.

As the liquid starts to cool, the photos go back into hiding.

These are dishwasher and microwave-safe.
The kids thought this mug was just a dandy, and I have to say I was pretty easily sold too. I like most anything that displays pics of the kiddos...add coffee to it, and I'm a happy girl. :)

This cup is printed on high quality ceramic, and it is both dishwasher and microwave-safe.

Cold Weather is Near: Tips to Reduce Heating Bills


It’s warm all over the United States right now, but most areas are beginning to cool off. That means that cold weather isn’t too far behind, and pretty soon you’re going to cranking the central heat just to stay warm at night.

While there’s really nothing you can do to avoid using your central heat this winter, there are some things you can do to keep your bills from going through the roof. Use this guide to make sure you don’t have to dip into your savings just to stay comfortable.

Keep Curtains Closed

Most people know that they shouldn’t keep their windows open in the summer months if they don’t want a house that’s as hot as it is outside. However, even the savvy homeowner doesn’t always realize that what’s coming in from outside through the windows is just as bad in the winter months.

While it can certainly be nice to have some light in your home, you need to close your curtains during the day to create a boundary between your windows and air in your home. Even that layer of curtains can really make a big difference in how warm your home stays.

Use Portable Heaters

Portable heaters can cost you a lot of money if you run them all the time. In fact, they can cost more money than central heating because they use electricity instead of gas, which tends to cost a whole lot more per unit in most areas. That doesn’t mean that portable heaters are all bad though.

If you spend most of your time in one part of the house like your bedroom, sometimes turning off the central heat and using a portable heater at night is a better idea. If you don’t need to heat the whole house there’s no reason to do so beyond a certain point.

Just make sure you don’t fall asleep with an electric heater on or put it somewhere that it could cause a fire. Portable heaters should only be used when you’re awake and at home to monitor them.

Get Your Heater Serviced

If you don’t want to pay for expensive Massachusetts furnace repairs you’re going to need to get regular service. That means getting a service plan or calling a professional team to come inspect your heater at the beginning of the season.

You’ll save money with fewer repairs and your bills will be lower because your system will be a lot more efficient

Time to treat yourself with a new pair of shoes from Lugz! Code: MYTREAT30 for 30% off


My son works outside, and he works hard. His position requires boots, but he's also young... 22, so he likes to be stylish too. These Empire HI WR Boots from LUGZ protect his feet and still allow him to look good.

These Lugz tie, which is great for adjustability. There is reinforced strong stitching all around the sides and lace length too.

We've had Lugz before, and I'm never disappointed with the brand. They have great selections for everyone in the family AND THEY HAVE PINK BOOTS for women!! In fact, they have boots that are pink, purple, red... etc., I could go on. And different styles too!!

#CallitPink with TracFone and the Susan G. Komen Foundation #ad

I am participating in a VIN campaign for TracFone. I am receiving a fee for posting; however, the opinions expressed in this post are my own. I am in no way affiliated with TracFone and do not earn a commission or percent of sales.

Airtime Service Plan Required for Activation

Breast Cancer has touched so many of us in one way, shape, or form. For me it was via a co-worker I’d worked with for ten years.  Watching her go through the diagnosis, treatment, and recovery process was hard…but it was also inspiring. Instead of worrying about her own feelings and comforts, she was constantly thinking of others, worried that she was putting them out, and other such things like that (oy vey!). But she was also really put through the wringer. It’s not something I would wish to anyone. I am very, very happy to tell you that her story had a happy ending, thanks to early detection. Not everyone is so lucky.


The Susan G. Komen Foundation and TracFone have partnered up yet again (this is the sixth year running) to work towards finding a cure. TracFone, one of America’s leading no-contract cell phone service providers, has agreed to donate a minimum of $25,000 this time around, which I think is amazing, and you can help! Simply purchase a TracFone Pink LG306 from any Dollar General store or online at DG.com and you are doing your part. Airtime service plan is required for activation. Cool, right? And easy!




TracFone provides their customers with nationwide coverage on America’s largest and most dependable networks. With no activation or cancellation fees, you can change your no-contract plan as often as your needs change, without penalties. And one of my favorite things about TracFone is that they are the only no-contract cell phone service provider to offerUnlimited Carryover®, , allowing customers to keep unused minutes, text and data as long as the cell phone service is active and in use within any six month period.

TracFone phones and airtime service plans are available at more than 100,000 retail locations nationwide. The ninety-day plans start out as low as $19.99 (less than $7 a month), and you can add to them at any time, allowing you to always have the minutes you need. Add-on Data-only cards and text-only cards are also available online. You can learn more about it by visiting http://bit.ly/TFWireless.

For every phone purchased in the month of October, ten percent of sales will go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. The Pink LG306 is extremely affordable, and costs just $9. You can purchase it at Dollar General Stores or online.  For more information, visit http://bit.ly/DGTracFone

Now my question to you is, are you ready to take action? Visit the store locator to find a Dollar General near you: http://bit.ly/TracFoneDollarG. Purchase one of these great looking phones, and you will be helping to donate to an even greater cause. Let’s #CallitPink together, shall we? And don’t forget to pick up a phone or two for holiday gift giving, if you start early like I do. I’m picking one of these up for my good friend’s daughter. I’ve already okay’d it with her mom. ;)

Won’t you join in and help fight the cause? Working together, we can all help to find a cure for Breast Cancer.

Whether it's you craving the snacks, or your kids they have a great variety of snacks that are oh so good for you, and they taste delicious too. Each little box comes with one bag of quality treats, like the Veggie Chips you see above, and a little cardboard squeeze carton of hummus! Chips and dip that taste great, and are good for you too? Now that's guilt-free eating.
Veggie Chips with Roasted Garlic Hummus?
The grown and yournger kids in this family all say, "Oh yes, please!"
These handy snack packs offer the perfect solution for busy parents who want to give their children something healthy but still yummy to eat. You can use them for after school snacks, snacks between meals, or literally any time you want them to have a little something to fill their bellies that is also going to fuel their bodies. I'm thinking they'd be perfect after soccer practice too. My son was in for four seasons and the first thing he said after every game was, 'What is there to eat?'
This snack pack, as with all of the Wild Garden
Snack Box to Go varieties, does not  require refrigeration.
That makes them a naturally perfect selection to pack for school lunches!
The Wild Garden Hummus Snack Packs do not require refrigeration, so they're also great for packing in the school lunches. What kiddo isn't going to want to have a cool snack and dip item in their Bento or lunch box??!!

really hit the spot for a delicious afterschool snack!
The flavor varieties keep the snacks fun. And you don't have to worry about saying, 'don't eat too much because you'll spoil your dinner' either. These are nice and filling for the time being, but just enough so to tide you over until meal time. Just the way a snack should be.

Sea Salt Quinoa Chips with Roasted Garlic Hummus
The four varieites are all great. I think the Sea Salt Quinoa Chips with a Roasted Garlic Hummus was the one that made me smile most. There's something cool about the way Quinoa can be used for so many great tasting dishes. Turning them into a chip though? That was brilliant!

You can order any of these products on Amazon.  You can follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter too. These Wild Garden Snack Pack to Go kits are a pretty great invention, don't you think?

Which variety do you think would be your fave?

#Zoonicorn Part Zebra Part Unicorn with Book!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


The little Zoonicorns really are so cute!
Blog reviews are supposed to be honest, right? So I'm going to tell the truth. I thought these little Zoonicorns were cute, but I didn't think they'd really be a big deal. And then they arrived...

There's a book! Each of the Zoonicorns from the collection plays a part
and there are other animals inside too. :)
When you open a box of Zoonicorns, magic really does take place. We recently received a box of four of them. The kids ran around excited, playing with their new-found friends. After having spent quite a bit of time doing that, it was time for my granddaughter to take a nap. Before her nap, she always has story time. I pulled out the new book she hadn't seen yet, that had her Zoonicorns inside. That's when the magic happened, she lit up like the little princess that she is, and her face was definitely glowing. That's magic, right?

Her mom said she's been reading the book to her every night and singing to her the little song (sometimes more than once). It is a hard cover, generously-sized book that she absolutely loves. I thought it was great too, and the pictures inside have a really cool watercolor-feel to them that is soothing, and perfect for bedtime (or any time) reading.


Zoonicorn is a privaetely held company in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The tagline of their company is as follows, "Enriching youth with life adventures." Their passion is to develop products that enrich consumers in meaningful ways. I like it. I like it a lot. :)

The children in my family have had endless hours of play with these little beauties. I think they are a great invention, and I definiltey recommend them to anyone looking for a matching book and stuffed animal set. These make reading more fun, and they are a nice companion to haul around the house too.

Fluoxetine for Depression

Disclosure: All opinions stated belong to the sponsor. Please check with your doctor before taking any medication.

Most of the people have experienced at least some mild episode of depression. Have in mind that it is quite natural to feel down from time to time. However, when we are talking about specific condition, depression is much more severe and lasts for a longer period of time.

There are various reasons why a person suffers from this illness. Like most of the medical issue, it can be due to a genetic flaw. People who have hereditary predisposition of developing mental illnesses will most likely have this kind of disturbance. If we perceive condition from biological standpoint, it can develop due to damaged neurotransmitters. Whatever may be the case, it usually requires a social trigger in order for disease to start. Individuals that are constantly under severe pressure, mistreated, accused of things and shunned by others are more likely to suffer from it. Depression is especially common for those that were victims of child abuse or who were mistreated by their parents. These individuals develop crooked picture of the world and they tend to have low self-esteem and confidence. Disease often develops during teenage years as a person tries to find his place in adult’s world. But, it can also appear at later time in life.

Depression is a feeling of low mood. It can affect person in numerous ways both physically and mentally. In order for condition to be diagnosed, patient needs to have symptoms for at least two weeks. Most people are indolent when it comes to treating depression. People usually think that the issue will pass on its own. Oftentimes, they believe that depression is connected to strength of will. This is common misconception that can result in person suffering from this illness for a long time without being treated. This way, patient may have depression for years without any improvement of condition. In order to treat it, individual needs to buy Fluoxetine online and to directly address the issue. Additionally, psychotherapy is required so that the patient can discover root of the problem.

This sickness is the only mental sickness that can result in suicide. Prolonged effect leads to suicidal thoughts so 10 to 15 % of people will commit suicide. Besides that, common issues are: low mood, lack of confidence, inability to make decisions, social awkwardness and inability to communicate and relate to other people, emotional distance, self-loathing, helplessness and hopelessness, insomnia, weight loss or gain etc.

Specialists from You! Drugstore recommend Fluoxetine for this particular problem. This medicine is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor. Besides depression, it can also be used to treat obsessive-compulsive disorder, bulimia nervosa, panic disorder and premenstrual dysphoric disorder. Drug comes in a form of capsule and it usually takes about 4 weeks for symptoms to improve. People who are suffering from cirrhosis, kidney disease, seizures or epilepsy, bipolar disorder, diabetes, narrow-angle glaucoma, those who have history of drug abuse or suicidal thoughts, as well as those that are being treated with electroconvulsive therapy need to consult their doctor before using Fluoxetine.

#O2O New Album Release Today! Harry Connick, Jr. #ThatWouldBeMe

Disclosure: I participated in the That Would Be Me album review program as a member of One2One Network. I was provided an album to review but all opinions are my own.


Who can whip up a song like no other and look good while he's singing it too? For me, that's an easy answer, it's Harry Connick, Jr.! I buy every single one of his albums as soon as they come out (even before I hear them). There are only a couple of artists I do that with...ever.

This artist has been a long time fave of mine, not only for his talents (and he's pretty easy to look at too) but also because he's just amazing to watch. He seems to really love performing, and that makes watching him perform really fun. Twice now I've missed the chance to see him live (once in Chicago and once in Lansing). Someday...


Until then, I will be listening to his music through my stereo speakers. :)  Today, October 23rd, Harry Connick, Jr.'s new album, That Would Be Me, has been released. I've heard the first two tracks on it so far. The first is fun and flirty, the second has a nice tropical feel to it (vacation time, anyone?). Of course, I'm looking forward to hearing the rest, and I will be doing that soon.Check out the video above to see how they put together his new album cover. It's amazing what artists can do, isn't it?

And here's the song list.

Celebrate the Holidays with Helen Ficalora

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


When you are looking for jewelry that makes you feel special, Helen Ficalora is the first place you should go! Delicate and light designs that delight your senses are found aplenty in this jewlery line. My absolute favorite will be listed in the holiday gift guide (coming soon), and that is the snowflake mini charm pictured above. The charm comes in three colors, white gold, pink gold and yellow gold. The white gold is seen above, and I just love it.

The box itself is an experience too. It adds to the special of the gift, and is perfect for any occasion. The outer cardboard box is tied with a pretty gold ribbon bow. Open that up and you have the tri-fold display box with a quality snap on the front. This box will ensure that you always have an attractive and safe place to store your helen Ficalora charm and chain.

White Gold lends itself well to gift giving.
The mini snowflake charm measures 12.8 mm x 10.8 mm. It is small enough for children, and stylish enough for adults.

Worn by my favorite 16-yr. old. She doesn't like her picture on the blog, but she does love the necklace. :)

This one went to a very special 16-year old in my life who just loves it (and I love her). I could have saved it for a Christmas gift, but I've got a big problem with waiting sometimes...especially when the gift is this good.

White Gold, Pink Gold, or Yellow Gold? 

Now the question is, which one do you like best? White Gold, Pink Gold or Yellow Gold? :)
