I’ve been shooting a lot more in my house, have you noticed? The light is pouring in through the windows now that the patio is taken down so I’m taking advantage of it! I also love shooting in my own home, it’s like I get to invite you into my house (and also makes shoots easier). The goal is to shoot more in my own home this next year. When the expansion goes up (replacing where the patio was) we are adding a skylight anyway so we will still get some light in this area. And once the expansion is done, more entertaining for guests!
Speaking of guests, I was sent over a box full of goodies that will help with entertaining and help any hostess or holiday lover get the house clean and also get into the holiday spirit! I’ve cut back on a lot of work and decided I am not going to have a hectic holiday, I’m going to enjoy it with the company of others and be around my home! I took some time to review the products now I can’t wait to give you the rundown on these products.
I’m also including any Black Friday and Cyber Monday specials so look for those details in this post following each of the products. From vacuum robots to an amazing sheet set at a price, there are some fun goodies in here to make your home the best party on the block!
A REVIEW OF THE GOODIES
Floor Cleaning Robot
I have wanted a floor cleaning robot for years but just hadn’t gotten around to getting one until one landed on my doorstep. So I couldn’t wait to set it up and start using it straight away. It can connect to your Google Home or Amazon smart home systems and you can command it to begin cleaning by saying aloud, “Hey Google, start DEEBOT.” There’s a mapping technology you can see on the ECOVACS app and you can schedule the day and time it starts and tell it to recharge. It was funny one morning Benjamin once asked me where it went since I had scheduled it Fridays at 10 am having it has been so helpful since I often find myself saying I wish we had a dog (but not really) for the small stuff I drop. It has been so helpful to have, I don’t know how I lived without it.
SALE: Cyber Monday week the ECOVACS DEEBOT 900 will be $100 off at participating retailers online. Click here to check out where to purchase.
This cute frosted mini green Christmas tree from Christmas Central has a high tip count (125) and realistic PE branches, I love PE branches that’s what our Christmas tree is made of and it looks more realistic! This compact tree can bring a little Christmas cheer to the rooms where the main Christmas tree isn’t in – like a guest room, additional play room or a bedroom. Check out their trees, Christmas decor, after all it’s called Christmas Central!
Holiday Candle Scents
I love that this season is warm enough to burn candles (it’s so hard to do that in the summer when it’s blazing hot!) this pumpkin latte candle by Chesapeake Bay Candle is a soy wax blend candle, delivering a clean burn and hand poured in the USA. It smells like brown sugar, maple and creamy vanilla, I’m licking my lips just smelling it! Pick one up as a hostess gift and one for yourself.
Bedsheet Set with Duvet Set
A total bed makeover with Brooklinen, this set includes a sheet set, pillowcases, and a duvet in buttery-smooth 480 thread-count weave! Check out the almost 31,000 reviews averaging 4.5 stars. Brooklinen knows how to present savings bundle and you can also mix and match the sheets with a different color duvet. I love the hotel look so all white is my jam and we’re due for a sheet and duvet refresh.
Can I also brag that this set comes with two extra pillowcases? I love that so much! It’s like we always need that extra set, we have four pillows on our bed (no decor pillows, I went clean hotel style). Similar luxury bedding can cost up to $895 but since Brooklinen is a direct-to-consumer model, you get the savings.
SALE – $20 off any order of $50 or more with Brooklinen discount code diana20 – good until 12/31/18.
Light Changing Smart Bulbs with Speaker
Loving these smart bulbs right now. With Sengled smart light bulbs you can control lights, set schedules, and check energy savings with your smart home device (like Google Home and Alexa) and an app. You can schedule lights to go on and off while on vacation (one of my favorite things to do) and when you have a party, you can change the color from warm or cool whites to a pop of color for festivities! These are pretty special as you can amplify the setting of a party by choosing how the light changes with the beat of music – just connect music via Bluetooth!
SALE – A Black Friday promotion will be happening and will range between 25% to 30% off. On Cyber Monday, take 35% off for 24 hrs for select Element products and Echo Dot v2/v3, and Echo v2 bundle with Element Classic 2 pack kit.
Non-Adhesive Shelf Liner
I cannot emphasize the importance of shelf liners. About a year ago I saw laundry detergent rolling down the walls from the top cabinet and realized one of our detergents had a broken bottom and was leaking all over the shelf and down the back wall! It took an hour to clean up and another hour to reorganize my laundry room shelf. I immediately thought to myself, if I had a shelf liner this would have been contained. Smooth Top ® Easy Liner ® Shelf Liner is a machine washable non-adhesive liner with a smooth surface for easy sliding and cleaning, and a non-slip grip bottom. It comes in 12” and 20” widths, priced $5-$6. Don’t be like me, be prepared and line your shelves!
