Shop BLINQ this holiday season and save up to 70% off retail prices (giveaway ends 12/6/15)


Christmas Gifts

Now that Thanksgiving is over it means that the holiday season has officially begun. Most people will be shopping up a storm looking for the perfect holiday gifts at rock bottom prices.

I used to be DONE holiday shopping by the start of November. The past few years it hasn’t worked out that way. Even today, on Thanksgiving, I have 3 gifts for my kids (in total). My husband and I need to get going and start getting some shopping done.

I try and avoid stores – most especially the mall – from Thanksgiving until mid-January. I dislike crowds, long lines and spending an hour just to find a parking spot. I prefer to do my shopping online from the comfort of my home.

When you shop at a mall you can bounce from store to store looking for the best deals. When you are shopping online it’s a bit harder because you don’t know what sites to hit up.

Imagine if you could shop online for electronics, toys, entertainment, clothing and more – all on one site? Even better – what if you can save upwards of 70% off retail prices AND get FREE shipping on every order too.

The site I am referring to is called BLINQ. It’s a fitting name since the items the site sells are so “hot” that if you “blink” they could be gone.


BLINQ has the best prices around, guaranteed.

How is BLINQ able to offer such rock bottom prices? It’s because retailers often send tons of fully functional products into landfills. Instead of sending these perfectly good items into landfills, BLINQ has teamed up with retailers to offer the products at huge discounts.

When you look at it it’s a win-win-win situation all around. Retails can sell their excess inventory, consumers get great products at huge discounts and it keeps all of these products out of the landfills.

I’ve been looking for gift items for family and friends on the site and came across some awesome deals.

My daughter LOVES bags. She has for years. She has amassed a nice collection.

Several years ago we were in New York City and she saw a sidewalk vendor selling “designer” bags (aka – fake knock offs). We didn’t really get it that they were not REAL bags. She also saw a “Coach” bag she just HAD to have. We told her it wasn’t really Coach, but she bought it anyway with money she had saved.


To this day my husband and I refer to that bag as the “Couch” (as in what you sit on) bag. LOL!

My daughter has been begging us for a Michael Kors bag for the past two years. A brand new bag is not within our budget. I even went so far as to look on an auction site for one, but the ones they sold there were used and in poor shape and still very expensive.

Michael Kors Bag on BLINQ

BLINQ has a beautiful Michael Kors bag that I know my daughter would LOVE. It’s a Michael Kors Selma Large East West Satchel. The bag retails for $358, but BLINQ has it for $188. That is almost a 47% savings. WOW!

I also found a fun gift for my husband on BLINQ. He’s just a big kid at heart and he LOVES the Toy Story trilogy. In fact, the first movie we saw when we started dating was Toy Story, so the film has some meaning to us. BLINQ has all three films, Toy Story 1-3, on Blu-ray for only $28.99. We have Toy Story 1 & 2 on DVD, but we’re missing #3. We’d also prefer to have them on Blu-ray. This would make a great gift for my husband.

I’ve already done a little shopping on BLINQ. I’ve already ordered a few things – including “gifts” for our pets.


Quiet Time Deluxe Fleece Double Bolster – I picked up a few of these for my pets because the beds they have are looking pretty gross and there are only so many times I can wash them. They are also not soft and fuzzy anymore. I know they will love these. They were 65% off retail price too.

Cupcake Pillow

DCI Cupcake 18×16″ Yummy Pillow – We’re getting the kids new beds (mattresses) and “bed in a bag” sets for Christmas. I wanted to get them new pillows too. My daughter loves decorative throw pillows AND she loves cupcakes. I thought this pillow would make a fun gift. It looks so real, it’s hard to believe it’s a PILLOW.

I even purchased a pillow from BLINQ for my son – as a joke.

Four of our five cats hanging out on my son's bed.

All of our cats love to lie on his bed. He’s an animal lover and doesn’t mind. I often find him in his room, on his computer (sitting in his bed) surrounded by the cats. We jokingly call the bed “Hair Central.” Needless to say we wash his bedding all the time.

I found this cute, realistic looking pillow on BLINQ that I am going to give him as a joke.

Manual Cat Shaped Pillow

Even if he doesn’t want it I have no problem putting this on our couch. I think it’s cute.

I have to admit that I picked up a holiday gift (ok… two gifts) for myself from BLINQ too.

I like to collected garden gnomes, but not just any type of gnome. Mine are all zombie gnomes. It started with one. I thought it was cool. It didn’t start out as a collection, but now it is one.

My gnome collection. There are two missing from the photo.

Keep in mind we live in a condo and don’t have a yard. WHY I have a collection of garden gnomes I’ll never know. Ha ha.

Zombies are a “hot” trend these days, thanks to The Walking Dead (I’ve liked zombies long before they were “cool”).

I found several zombie items on BLINQ that would make fun gifts for the zombie fan in your life.


Zombie Garden Gnome Statue 7″L Figurine Crawling Undead Horror Figurine

I picked up the garden gnome to add to my morbid collection. I also found these fun zombie coasters.


The Pacific Giftware Walking Horror Twisted Zombies w/ Coaster Set Figurine will be a lot of fun to use next Halloween.

OK… back to REAL holiday gift ideas.

I’m going to order this cute doormat for my father and step-mother. They LOVE Dachshunds (they have one). I thought this mat would be a sweet gift for their house. It’s called the Fiddler’s Elbow Dachshunds / Path Doormat.

Fiddlers Elbow Dachshunds Doormat

BLINQ has it all including electronics, jewelry, toys, games, clothing, pet supplies, home decor – and so much more! Best of all you can save upwards of 70% off and get FREE shipping on all orders.

The only “downside” about BLINQ is that once the product is gone – it’s gone. Like I said, if you “blink” you might miss out. That is why you should bookmark the site and check often to take advantage of great deals when you spot them.

Check out BLINQ for yourself at www.BLINQ.com. You can also find the brand on social media. All of the links are found at the bottom right of the home page.

A fun “stocking stuffer” and gift idea – Exotic Angels’ Joy Globe


Christmas Gifts

Each year it gets a little harder to come up with fun and unique gift ideas for people on your holiday shopping list that are not necessarily friends or family – but people you want to show gratitude for like your mailman, bus driver, favorite bank teller or your child’s teacher. Over the years I have discussed gifts with teachers I know and they all tell me the same thing – there is only so many mugs a teacher can use.

I have a fun holiday gift idea that won’t “break the bank” and it’s something the receiver can enjoy year round. It’s a Exotic Angels‘ Joy Globe. They are the perfect holiday gift for your kids’ teachers, a yoga instructor, or for a Secret Santa.  Exotic Angel Joy Globes are also great hostess gifts so be sure to keep them on hand for last minute invitations.

What exactly is an Exotic Angels’ Joy Globe? It’s a beautifully made glass globe that contains an Air Plant (Tillandsia). An Air Plant is a tiny, living plant that does not require much water. The plant adds an ethereal element to these lovely ornaments.

The ornamental globes come in festive colors including red, gold and silver to match everyone’s holiday décor. They even sparkle too!


After the holiday, the plants can be transplanted to any open top container to enjoy year round.

In a way this is a gift within a gift. The recipient gets a beautiful LIVING ornament for their Christmas tree and then after the holiday they can enjoy the little plant year round. You can put the plant in another container and re-purpose the holiday globe. You could even pop the little plant back inside the holiday globe next Christmas and hang it back up on your tree.

Please don’t pack the plant away with your holiday ornaments. The plants inside are alive and probably won’t survive until the next time you unbox your ornaments for Christmas 2016.

I was sent some of the Exotic Angel Joy Globes to review. They are much lovelier in person than they are in the photos. I love how they a sparkle! I bet they are going to look spectacular with the light from Christmas lights flickering and dancing off of the sparkles on the globes. I cannot wait to add them to our tree.


The back of the globes are covered with "glitter" in red, gold, silver and green.

The back of the globes are covered with “glitter” in red, gold, silver and green.

You don’t need to hang these off a Christmas tree either. You can easily display these on a counter top or shelf. Just be careful that they don’t get knocked over because they are made out of glass and will shatter if they hit the floor. Should that happen (and I hope it never does) at least I know the little plant can go inside just about any kind of reciprocal such as a small bowl, tea cup, tiny terra cotta pot and more.

You can find the Exotic Angel Joy Globes at retail locations such as Lowe’s, Home Depot, and Walmart. They retail for around $7.98.

If you would like to learn more about Exotic Angel plants please visit CostaFarms.com/ExoticAngel.

What do you think of gifting someone more (or more) of these lovely Exotic Angel Joy Globes? Would you like to receive some as a gift? Feel free to share your thoughts. I always love to hear from readers.

Five Tips for a Happy and Healthy Plant-Based Thanksgiving


Thanksgiving Turkey

Thanksgiving is such a great holiday. We take time to be with our loved ones and be thankful for our relationships, our health, and our opportunities. It’s a time to celebrate the harvest and all of the wonderful flavors and colors and textures of autumnal foods – and the best part? All of the best fall foods are plant-based! And there are plenty of ways to celebrate and incorporate them into the holiday season.

With Thanksgiving approaching, I wanted to give some of my best holiday tips so that you can feel joyous about the holiday and celebrate what Thanksgiving means to you while still doing what feels good for your body.

Here are five tips for a happy and healthy Thanksgiving:

Have fun planning a menu. Don’t limit yourself by thinking only of traditional foods. If you’re cooking for a larger group and they’re expecting their holiday favorites, there are ways you can emulate those foods with a healthier recipe, like mashed cauliflower instead of mashed potatoes. But if your guests are adventurous, go outside the box! There are tons of amazing seasonal recipes you can make to celebrate harvest time without loading them full of meat and dairy, but you could also look to other cultural dishes to really explore the world in your menu.

Invite people who share your values. This might be easier said than done! It can be a fun way to recharge with people who actually share your values and will appreciate every second you put into planning and cooking for them. People are often busy visiting their families, but with many people living far away from loved ones, an invitation to a fun plant-based holiday gathering can be a great thing.


Start a new tradition. I love this! Traditions can be anything, whether it’s Frisbee in the park, watching a certain movie, or silly things like hiding something that everyone has to try and find. Have fun with it. If you’re not sure what to do, look up traditions of other cultures and use it as a teaching lesson for your kids.

Spend time with your loved ones creating memories. What may just be a silly song or movie time or a walk through a pumpkin patch today, could end up being one of our most cherished memories. Remember that the holidays aren’t just about food. It’s about spending time with your loved ones, celebrating the reason you can come together, and being thankful for what your blessings.

Take time for yourself! It’s not uncommon for us to spend so much time trying to make an enjoyable experience for our children and loved ones that we end up exhausted at the end of the day or weekend. Make sure that you have time to unwind. Get in a workout, meditate, and relax. Whether you enlist help making food or spend some time prepping for your meal in the days before, do what you need to do to keep from getting burned out and overscheduled during the holiday.

Keep in mind that your holiday can still incorporate your healthy habits. There’s no reason why post-Thanksgiving fun can’t be a walk around the block or an hour at the park. You can even pick up a football and play together! The most important thing is to take this time to recharge and take time to feel the joy of gratitude for your blessings, the things you’ve worked hard for, and the people who love you.

Here’s my favorite holiday recipe for Cauliflower Mash to get you inspired for your plant-based Thanksgiving!


Cauliflower Mash

• 1 lb. bag frozen or fresh cauliflower
• 1/4 cup fat-free soymilk
• 1 clove garlic, chopped
• 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
• 1 tsp poultry seasoning
• 1 tsp nutritional yeast
• 2 Tbsp cornstarch
• 2 Tbsp water to mix with corn starch
• 1 Tbsp fresh parsley

In a pot, steam cauliflower for 10-12 minutes or until very soft. Drain well using a colander. In a saucepan, combine soymilk, garlic, 1/4 cup water, Italian seasoning, poultry seasoning and yeast over medium heat. When it begins to boil, slowly mix the cornstarch/water mixture into the sauce, stirring constantly until thickened.

When cauliflower is cool enough, squeeze as much water out as possible. Place the cauliflower in the processor or high-powered blender and blend for about a minute. Add sauce and fresh parsley to cauliflower and process until creamy and smooth. If it’s too thick, you may adjust the consistency by adding a little bit of soymilk. Makes 4 servings.

Give the gift of comfort with PeachSkinSheets (giveaway ends 11/27/15)



What do you gift someone who has everything? I think that is a dilemma that plagues many of us during the holiday season. You have some people on your holiday list that are super easy to buy for. Then you have other people that you end up pounding you head on the wall because you have no idea whatsoever as to what to get them for the holiday.

I am a firm believer that sometimes practical gifts can make great gifts. Take for example my daughter. She’s 18+, goes to college and works. She’s saving up for a car so that she doesn’t have to take public transportation anymore and walk in inclement weather. She came right out and told us that this Christmas she wants us to buy her makeup and beauty products. She said she would rather use her money to save for a car than buy face wash. I said to her “How exciting is face wash?” She said she was being totally honest – she would much rather have the things she wants/needs then something she won’t wear or never use. She has a point there.

Here is a practical gift idea – bedding. In particular sheets.

In the past I did a review for a brand called PeachSkinSheets (yes, that is their name – all one word). They are great sheets. In fact we have another set and they are currently on our bed.

Why do I love PeachSkinSheets? Because they are so silky-soft and make our bed so inviting at the end of a long day. They are so comfy that they make it hard to get out of bed in the morning. I just want to stay snuggled in our bed, buried in the sheets and our comforter.


Here is some additional information about the brand’s sheets.

The Original PeachSkinSheets are GREAT for hot sleepers! Breathable, ultra soft, anti-pill and anti-snag bed sheets featuring thermal control and moisture management properties…warm sleepers stay cool, and cool sleepers stay cozy. The durable athletic grade performance SMART fabric wicks away moisture to keep you drier and more comfortable. Best of all, they have a luxurious 1500 Thread Count softness with a brushed PeachSkin finish on both sides. Available in Split King, Cali King, King, Queen, Full, Twin and XL Dorm Twin and XL Dorm Full.

Their sheets also have a wrinkle release that is activated in the dryer on medium to medium/high heat (temperature depends on your dryer) in about 20 minutes after washing.

We don’t have an iron, or ironing board. I intentionally buy things that don’t need to be ironed (things that are wrinkle free or come out of the dryer wrinkle free). I remember watching my mom iron sheets. It didn’t look fun. I’m glad I don’t have to do that thanks to PeachSkinSheets. We have other sheets (lesser quality) that are beyond wrinkled, and I don’t like that. It doesn’t look very inviting when you are crawling into bed at night.

I should mention that we sleep on a sofa bed. Even though it’s the world’s most uncomfortable bed (if you’ve ever slept on one you know what I mean), the sheets fit perfectly. Our bed will NEVER be fully comfortable. At least we have luxurious sheets, soft pillows and a fluffy comforter to make our bed at least “livable.”

PeachSkinSheets has a FREE swatch program so that you can pick out the perfect color/colors to match your bedroom decor. Sometimes the colors you see on your computer screen are not the same as the color you see in person.

If you would like to order free sample swatches visit www.PeachSkinSheets.com/pages/About-Our-Colors.

Each month PeachSkinSheets have two “Colors of the Month” for $55 for any size set. Otherwise the regular price is $69.95 for most sets and $85 for Split King/Adjustable Bed specialty sizes.

To see what colors are current the “Color of the Month,” visit www.PeachSkinSheets.com/Collections/Color-of-the-Month. I would recommend bookmarking that page if you are interested in the sheets and check monthly to see when your favorite color/colors is on sale.

Why would sheets make a great holiday gift? Not only are they practical (everyone needs sheets on their bed) but they are also oh-so-comfortable and they provide a nice pop of color to enhance any bedroom.

PeachSkinSheets would make a great gift for a new homeowner, newlyweds, college students and anyone who enjoys being comfortable in bed.

Beautiful gift ideas from CanvasPop – Discount Code & Giveaway (giveaway ends 11/27/15)


close up of woman with gifts and christmas tree

Finding the perfect gift for that someone special on your holiday shopping list is sometimes a challenge. I can tell you that from personal experience. I have a few people on my holiday shopping list that are nearly impossible to buy gifts for. You simply have no idea what they would like (or won’t like).

Two people on our holiday shopping list that I find it difficult for buy gifts for it my father and stepmother. They don’t really want or need anything, and if they do, they have the funds to get what they want/need. That means I need to come up with creative gift ideas to give them for the holiday season.

Since they are grandparents I like to look for gifts that grandparents would like. I’m not talking mugs and t-shirts – I’m thinking something they can enjoy every day.

I found some great gift ideas from a company called CanvasPop. CanvasPop makes customized photo gifts. I’m not talking mugs and t-shirts – I’m talking framed prints that can be proudly displayed on the wall.

I know what you are thinking – how special are photos? Anyone can take a photo, pop it in a frame and hang it on the wall. While that might be true – CanvasPop takes it a few steps further.

CanvasPop helps you to create works of art you can display on your walls out of photos on your Instagram feed, photos off your cellphone and even photos off your Facebook page. You can also make collages out of your favorite photos, create stunning panoramic photos and even add text and filters to your photos.

Here are a few examples.






CanvasPop asked me to create something to do a review of their products and services.

I love displaying photos of my family. I wanted to create a photo collage using CanvasPop’s service. I chose five photos – one of our daughter, one of our son, one of my daughter with my husband, one with me with our son and then a photo of the four of us together. These are special pictures taken at our daughter’s prom and high school graduation and our son’s 16th birthday and a special trip to the top of the Empire State Building. These are special memories for our family which are forever preserved in a lovely framed piece of art.

I couldn’t figure out what photo to use for the sixth spot on the college so I created a graphic using PicMonkey to put in that spot that reads “Family: Where live begins and love never ends.”

I was anxious to see how the photo art turned out. CanvasPop had it delivered in a decent time frame (they didn’t have me wait too long – LOL).

I was shocked – and amazed – at how beautiful it turned out. I love it!

The photos were all matted and the frame adds the perfect touch.

CanvasPop Photo

THE PHOTO DOESN’T DO IT JUSTICE! The photo is horrible (grainy). I had a hard time getting a good shot without the glare of the lamp and sunlight. In person the frame and mat is pristine white and the photos look amazing. I wish the photo showed you how truly beautiful this looks.

It’s a substantial piece. Thank goodness it came with the necessary hanging equipment.

Currently I have the artwork sitting on top of a bookcase. We need to move a few things around on our walls so that I can hang it where it would look best (above the love seat). It’s just a matter of getting my husband to do it.

A gift like this from CanvasPop would make an amazing gift. Imagine making a collage of all the grandchildren? Or gifting your best Instagram or Facebook photos? I love the idea of having several smaller photos grouped together (as pictured above in the post). I am going to do that one day with Instagram photos of our pets.

If you don’t have the perfect photo or photos in mind you can always gift someone a gift card to CanvasPop so that they can create their own works of art.

CanvasPop was kind enough to create a discount code for readers. Use the code SHESCRIBES35 to save 35% off on your ENTIRE order. The discount code expires on November 31, 2015. That is a generous savings. It would be great to pick up several gifts on CanvasPop using the discount code since it would apply to your entire order.

To check out what CanvasPop has to offer, and to take advantage of the discount code, visit CanvasPop.com. If you need inspiration check out their ideas and inspiration page. You can also check them out on social media. All of the links are found at the bottom of their website.

In addition to the discount code, CanvasPop would like to give a lucky reader a 16″ x 20″ framed photo paper print with the 2.5″ white mat. The prize will be given in the form of a discount code that would include the cost of shipping to Canada, the USA and the EU. The winner will have until November 30, 2016 (next year) to use the code.

New Pillow Specially Designed for Head and Neck Pain Relief (plus 30% discount code)


Hubby enjoying a REAL bed at a hotel.

Hubby enjoying a REAL bed at a hotel.

Sleep… it’s a wonderful thing.

I love to sleep. Some days there is nothing better then snugling up under a soft comforter and resting your head on a comfy pillow. Sadly getting comfortable in our bed is easier said than done.

My husband and I sleep on a sofa bed. Fourteen years ago we gave up the bedroom for our kids. We originally converted the dining room into a bedroom but as the kids got older the room got smaller and smaller. The only option we had was to give up the bedroom and sleep in the living room.

We’ve slept on a sofa bed, then air mattresses, then a daybed with pop-up trundle, then back to a sofa bed.

The daybed with pop-up trundle was the most comfortable because they were real beds with real mattresses. The downside was that guests had to sit on the daybed in lieu of a real couch. Daybeds are not comfy like couches are. In addition my husband and I couldn’t sleep next to each other since we were in two separate beds. We ended up going back to the sofa bed.

If you have ever spent a night sleeping on a pull out sofa bed you know how incredibly uncomfortable they are. There is nothing worse than sleeping with a metal bar in your shoulder. Sigh…

We can’t do much about our actual bed, so we try and make up for a better bed in other ways including soft sheets, a snugly comforter and comfy pillows.

When it comes to pillows, I’m the worse. I’m very picky. I need my head to be at a certain angle or I cannot sleep. The pillows have to be a certain firmness too.

My husband on the other hand is less picky. As long as it’s comfortable he’s happy with any pillow he gets.

I was sent to review a new pillow that was specifically designed for head and neck relief.

Before I share our experience with the pillow, let me give you a little background about how the pillow came to be.


Andy Barkin is a Southern California product design engineer and inventor with several patents and products under his belt. A couple of years ago, his uncle asked him if he might design something that would relieve his neck pain and discomfort and help him sleep better.

Andy slept on the idea. He explains, “When you’re on your back, you only want a small amount of support under your head. Too much support and you block off your airway. You also want a bit of gentle, soft support under the neck in the cervical area. Not too much, and it can’t be too stiff. And then when you’re on your side, you need a higher level of support to proper align your head, neck, and spine. That’s why we fold our pillow or place our hands under our head – trying to get our neck back into alignment with our spine.”

Andy went through numerous prototypes where he tried different foams, shapes, densities, and thicknesses until he perfected his final prototype. He knew he was close when his uncle wouldn’t give him his early prototype model back.

His design, which is patent-pending, supports you as you change positions through the night.

Andy created the Sleep With Us Pillow. The pillow comes with a washable cover over a viscoelastic base, and two high-resiliency inserts which are molded inside of the base.

There are two components to the pillow. The protective pillowslip which is easily unzipped and fully machine-washable. In the event that this does not clean your pillow, you may place the pillow in a large drum washer on a hand wash or gentle cycle. Use cold water and allow to air dry.


The molded inserts respond to your movements throughout the night. As you roll to your side, the Sleep With Us Pillow provides the higher level of support you need.

The pillow also utilizes an ultra-low odor material that minimizes any unpleasant smell. Airing out the new pillow for 24 hours is recommended before use.

I have a pillow that I am pleased with, but my husband’s pillow was starting to resemble a pancake because it was almost completely flat (it didn’t start out that way). I gave my husband the Sleep With Us Pillow to try out and help me with the review.

My husband snores – A LOT. In fact he snores every night and it’s a huge reason why I can never seem to get a good night’s sleep. I find that if he sleeps on his left shoulder, facing away from me, he doesn’t snore at all. He’s totally silent. If he sleeps on his back or his right shoulder – oh my – he can snore the roof off our condo!

I found that after he started to use this pillow he didn’t toss and turn as much as he used to. Not tossing as much meant that he stayed on his left shoulder for longer periods of time and I was able to get a good night’s sleep. I wonder if his head being in a more comfortable position is the reason why he doesn’t toss and turn all night long? I have no scientific proof. It’s just a hypothesis that I have.

I have not slept on the pillow personally, so I have been asking my husband his thoughts on the pillow.


As per my husband – the pillow is very comfortable. He loves the firmness of the pillow. It’s firm but not too firm. It’s still very comfortable to rest your head on.

As far as neck aches, my husband tells me the pillow does seem to help in that aspect (nothing can save our backs/shoulders from the dreaded bar).

He tells me that he feels more rested when he wakes up in the morning (I suspect that has a lot to do with less tossing and turning). He also likes that he doesn’t have to “plump up” the pillow or bend it in different ways just to make it comfortable to rest his head on.

I had mentioned “odor” earlier in the post but my husband never picked up on any unpleasant smells. He said it smelled like a pillow. LOL!

The Sleep With Us Pillow fits any standard size pillow case which is a nice “bonus” too. Sometimes specialty pillows are too big or too thick to fit a regular pillow case.

My husband has nothing but great things to say about the Sleep With Us Pillow. If I didn’t just recently get a new pillow for myself I would seriously consider getting one for myself.

If you would like to learn more about this pillow please visit www.BuySleepWithUs.com. The pillow is available at Amazon.com.

If you purchase the pillow through Amazon and use the code BARKIN30 upon check out you can get 30% off (while supplies last).
