I enjoy entertaining.  The older I get the simpler I want changing out from one occasion to another to be. I was excited to get the opportunity to to order Emart’s chair covers and tablecloths during a promotion.  Their solid white surface provides a blank canvas that is perfect for all types of decorating. I quickly changed my dining room table from Halloween to Fall and then to Winter using nothing more than duct tape!  The tape is easy to apply and remove. (The residue from cutting the duct tape can be removed from your scissors with WD-40)

HALLOWEEN ~

For Halloween I decorated the chairs with a “ghosts” and “spiders”. The candy corn, eyes and nose on the spider were cut from Duck brand chalkboard tape and then colored with permanent markers. I chose reverible place mats so I could reverse to solid orange and use them after Halloween. The centerpiece was a simple white pumpkin surrounded at the bottom with Jack-O-Lantern cookies. My Sister-in-Law gave me the gorgeous bowl that the pumpkin is displayed in. I put the bowl on top of a black candle stand (turned upside down).

FALL ~

I used inexpensive straw hats from the dollar store to top the chairs and help turn them into “scarecrows”. The hats have a metal edge so it was no problem to bend the hats so that they would stay on the top of the chairs. Wire edged ribbon,  fall leaves along with  duct tape features completed the look and took only minutes to apply. I used bronzer to add some color to their cheeks. The same Halloween place mats were used, turned over to the solid side. I added cornucopia napkins and pine cones to the centerpiece.

WINTER ~

I like using snowmen to decorate with because they  look good before, during and after the Christmas Holiday. I used inexpensive black sun hats, stapled in the front to top the chairs. I left the “mouth” and ribbon that was on the scarecrows and just switched the noses to a carrots adding coal eyes. I took this photo to show how the simple addition of two “buttons” makes a big difference! I removed the white pumpkin from the centerpiece, added pine cones (that I picked up from the yard) and fresh red delicious apples!

Themed parties are always a lot of fun! To create the “cat”, duct tape was used again for the features and bows. For the ears I used large stick on labels. A “rabbit” with long ears would be easy to create for Spring parties!  You could use black for ears, nose and spots to create dog chairs for “Snoopy” or “Zoomer” on Paw Patrol. Pandas would be no problem to create. The ways these chair covers can be decorated is virtually unlimited!

I look forward to using these chair covers. They are made from stretchy fabric. The bottoms have pockets for the legs of the chairs to slip into. They stay in place and are comfortable to sit on. They can be put over a variety of chairs. They work on folding  card table chairs, but don’t look as good as they do on straight back dining chairs. The table covers are made from 100% polyester, 90-Inch diameter and fit most standard round rectangular banquet tables. They come in a box of 6.  They are easy to launder, but will need to be ironed. I washed one and took it out of the dryer damp, hoping the wrinkles from being folded for packing would come out. It still needed ironing. They chair covers need no ironing.

I was excited to be given the opportunity to try SpaceSaver Premium *JUMBO* Vacuum Storage Bags during a promotion. I couldn’t wait to try them out! I had recently purchased some pillows for my outdoor rockers. I am going to use the pillows next Summer and need to store them. I used one of the bags for them.  I was very pleased with how many pillows I could get in one bag and impressed with how compact the bag became!

You get 6 Space Saver bags in the *Jumbo* Pack. Each bag measures 38 1/2″ x 31″. The  area that can be filled measures 33″ x 31″. These bags are heavy duty, the plastic is thick!

The bags are easy to fill, I had no problem putting four 18″ pillows in bag. I tried out the pump that is included and it does work, however it is slow, and gives your hand and arm a work out! My vacuum compressed the bag completely in a matter seconds! Each bag has a Double-Zip Seal and Triple Seal Turbo-Valve!

This set comes with printed directions, and also each bag has”How To Use” directions printed on it. The bags can be used over and over. I appreciate that they will keep items free from dust, odor and insects! Even though it is slow to use, the portable pump makes these bags perfect for traveling!

These bags come with a Lifetime Replacement Guarantee. I am pleased with their performance and pleased to recommend them. I like to change our bedroom decor often. I have a lot of quilts and comforters. I will be using these bags to help organize my linen closet!

I was happy to test a sample of this product while giving my unbiased opinion.

Capture ozeri 8 inch pan.PNG

My husband likes his eggs cooked over easy and my daughter likes her eggs scrambled. This 8″ pan has a non stick surface which allows me to cook over easy eggs, then wipe it out with paper towel and scramble eggs! The over easy eggs are easy to turn without breaking.

This pan cooks evenly and the best part is that clean up is a breeze. One of the things I don’t like about cooking eggs is washing the skillet.  This pan has a ceramic coating that is safe to use and easy to clean.

This is part of the product description:

  • Unlike other ceramic cookware brands, the Ozeri pan utilizes GREBLON ceramic – an ultra-safe ceramic coating from Germany which is 100% PTFE, PFOA and APEO free (no heavy metals or chemicals).
  • Innovative honeycomb textured cooking surface delivers enhanced heat distribution and unprecedented non-stick performance without releasing harmful fumes or toxins at high temperatures.
  • Utilizes a new scratch-resistant dual ceramic coating that is super easy to clean with superior abrasion resistance.
  • Made out of durable heavy-gauge die-cast aluminum with no heavy metals or harmful chemicals.
  • Boasts a comfortable heat-resistant silicon coated handle, and a magnetized induction stove safe base for rapid heat transfer.

This pan can be purchased from Amazon~

I could not be more pleased with this skillet! I feel good recommending it. I received it for free in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. #GotItFree #review  #Elite1sReviews

These tanks are soft and lightweight! I ordered the Size: 1X-2Pack | Color: Black & White. I wear a 38C bra and this size fit well. The fabric has stretch and the tops are long. The seam on the sides measures 21″.  These tanks are perfect when I wear them over a Racerback sports bra and work outside on hot / humid days. The fabric is breathable and reminds me of the material undershirts are made of. This Winter they will work well as an added layer under a long sleeve shirt. They also look good when two are worn together, layered one on top of the other as shown in the photo below.

P1130698.JPG

They are made from a  57% cotton / 38% polyester / 5% spandex blend. They have double-stitched neck, arm openings and bottom hem. The ribbed knit material provides a good fit and comfortable wear. The product description says they can be machine washed in cold cold water, but the hang tag says “Hand wash, cold water, Do not bleach, Hang Dry”. I machine wash them on gentle cycle in cold water with like colors with no issues. I put them on a clothes hanger to dry. They don’t take up much space and can be rolled up and added to an overnight bag when traveling. They are versatile and can be used as an extra shirt, bathing suit cover up or sleep shirt.

I love the colors that these camisoles come in. I ordered the 6-Pack option “A”. It includes  6 different colors, charcoal, jade green, black, brown, purple and red. These camis are  made from a  95% cotton / 5% Lycra blend. The product description says they are seamless, but they are not.  They are tagless. They have the care instructions printed on the back. “Machine Wash, Do not tumble dry, Iron at low temperature”

P1130681.JPG

I ordered these camisoles in size “XL” for my niece. When they arrived, they looked big so I tried one on. I was surprised that it fit me. I normally wear a women’s Medium / Large. I wear camisoles under shirts in the Winter for an added layer of warmth and around the house and to sleep in. I generally pick camisoles with a shelf bra. These do not have that, but they are comfortable. The fabric is very stretchy, that along with their long length and adjustable straps make them fit bigger than expected. The side seam are 18 1/2” long.

These Hipsters have an all over stretchy lace design and each pair is embellished with a silver charm! The charm measures 7/8″ and has a rhinestone in the center!

P1130679.JPG

These hipsters are available in either 6 packs or 12 packs. The colors are random and you could get a duplicate. The price is affordable! I ordered the 6 pack and received one each in Black, Pink, Beige, Hot pink, White and Red. I am excited because the hot pink, red, black and white match perfectly a set of bras that I also ordered from UNIQE STYLES  https://www.amazon.com/Unique-Styles/b/ref=w_bl_sl_ap_ap_web_9102278011?ie=UTF8&node=9102278011&field-lbr_brands_browse-bin=Unique+Styles

P1130688.JPGThey are made from a soft, comfy blend of 90% nylon and 10% spandex. I hand wash them and hang them to dry. They dry quickly. I wear a size 10/12 Petite and ordered the XL. I am pleased with the fit. I feel their sizing chart is accurate. These hipsters are the type undergarment that is meant to fit snugly and  hug tightly. Their all over stretch helps them conform to your particular shape. Granny panties they are not!

Manufacturer size USA Hip

4 XS 34-35.5
5 S 36-37.5
6 M 38-39.5
7 L 40-41.5

I appreciate that they have a small oval shaped liner in the crotch area, that matches the color of the lace.

This set of toothbrushes includes 12 individually wrapped toothbrushes and comes with a stand to hold them. It fits perfectly in my narrow bathroom cabinet!

P1130647.JPG

These brushes come in random assorted colors. My set includes 3 green, 3 red, 3 blue and 3 purple. They are almost identical to the Colgate toothbrush I am currently using (that came from my last visit to my Dentist, except these brushes have a hole in the end for hanging. I appreciate that because on the inside of the cabinet door, I put some stick on stainless hooks and I can hang these toothbrush right from those hooks. I don’t recall the last time I bought a toothbrush that had a hole for hanging?

Capture Colgate tooth brushes.PNGThe toothbrushes have multi level bristles that effectively clean all surfaces of the teeth and between teeth. The handles are easy to grasp. The bristles are medium firmness. The back of the head has ridges to clean your tongue. I am a fan of Colgate products and these brushes meet my expectations in every way!

This brushes are available from Amazon ~ a set of 12 for $9.99. (which makes them 83 cents a piece) They ship Free with Amazon Prime.
