Update your home decor with Decocrated’s Summer 2020 Box (discounts too!)

 

 

I know it’s hard to believe that it’s summer time. Most of the things we look forward to are simply not happening this summer. For example, my family and I are terribly disappointed that the Dutchess County Fair will not be happening in August. We look forward to that every summer. We’re also reluctant to visit state parks and the beach for obvious reasons (pandemic). I guess this summer we’ll spend in our condo with the AC blasting and watching every movie on Netflix, Hulu and Disney+. Sigh…

One thing I am able to do this summer, regardless of what is happening around the world, is update my home’s decor and add some fresh new pieces to give my home a summer vibe.

If you read my site on a regular basis, you probably recall me writing about Decocrated. Decocrated is a seasonal subscription box that sends subscribers 5-7 full size products that reflect the season. The fall box has fall related pieces, the winter box has winter related pieces, and so forth.

The Summer 2020 box is now available, and let me tell you, the goodies that came in the box are worth every penny!

I LOVE when my Decocrated box arrives. It’s like Christmas and my birthday all rolled into one. The box is huge!

I try my best not to look up spoilers for each box. I love being surprised. I will admit that sometimes I can’t wait for the box to arrive and I will look up spoilers, but even if I do know what I’m getting in the box, I’m still super excited for it to arrive.

For the Summer 2020 box I did my best with an unboxing video. I know it’s not the best video, but it’s a work in progress. Hopefully I’ll be better by the time I unbox the Fall 2020 box.

Here is my unboxing video, in case you would like to check it out.

 

I LOVE the contents of this box. I honestly can’t tell you which is my favorite piece. If I had to choose just one, I think it would be the two tiered display shelf. Although… I really do love the succulent planter and the mirror too. It’s so hard to choose!

Here is what came in the Summer 2020 box.

Going clockwise…

Two Tiered Display Shelf – I LOVE this piece! I can think of so many ways to use this. You can use it in the bathroom to display and organize hand towels, perfume, decorative soap, trinkets and more. You can also use it on your kitchen counter to hold your fresh fruits and vegetables to make them easier to “grab and go.”

This shelf set could also be used on your dresser to hold jewelry and perfume, or you can use it to organize your make up.

The shelf pieces come off so that you can use them to serve thing such as snacks, appetizers or desserts.

I had wanted to use this in the bathroom, but it didn’t fit in the space I had in mind. You’ll have to keep an eye out on my social media pages (SheScribes on Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram, @She_Scribes on Twitter) to see how I ended up using this piece.

Decorative Throw Pillow Covers – Each box that I have received from Decocrated always included a decorative throw pillow case or two. This box came with two pillow cases. One side is a lovely, gold color and design. The other side has a texture to it. I want to say it reminds me of burlap, but not like a potato sack. It’s pretty!

Artwork – Each box features artwork from a specific artist. This box’s artist is Kate Aurelia Studio (@KateAureliaStudio) and Kasey Free Studio (@KaseyFreestudio). It’s a pretty summer design with a lovely blue (like the summer sky!) and bright yellow lemons.

The artwork is double sided. The other side features lemons (no text).

The artwork that comes with the boxes can be displayed in a variety of ways such as in a frame or on a cork board. Because you receive a new piece with each box, you will always have a new piece of artwork to display.

Golden Planter/Basket – This is a really cool piece. It can be used as a planter or you can use it like a basket to store and organize things.

This piece matches the gold “cups” (see below) and try that I received in the Spring 2020 box. I love it how many Decocrated pieces can be mixed and matched and displayed with other items from previous boxes.

DECOCRATED SPRING 2020 BOX

I wish I still has the above items handy so I could put them next to the planter/basket that came with the Summer 2020 box. I had packed it away when I brought out our summer decorations. If you saw our basement storage area you’d know why digging them out would be easier said than done.

Succulent Planter – This is SO CUTE! It’s a little planter with fake succulents in it. The succulents look real. Not only do they add a pop of color to any place you place it, but the planter is also very decorative.

I can’t keep plants if my life depended on it. I decorate my home with realistic looking fake plants and flowers. This planter fits right in. I even have other fake succulents around my home.

Also included in the box..

Small rug – This little rug would be great to adorn your front door, your sliding glass doors, bathroom, kitchen or hallway. It can really be used just about anywhere.

My cats love this rug. They think it’s for them. There is usually a cat sleeping on it throughout the day. Thankfully this is pretty easy to clean.

I love the colors (light blue/gray and white). It reminds me of something you’d find in a home with a beach-theme.

Mirror/Mirrored Tray – This is another favorite piece from the Summer 2020 box that I really like. It’s a mirror that you can either hang up on the wall, or use it as a display base.

Currently I have this hanging on the wall in the hallway (I can give myself a last minute “once over” to make sure I look OK), but I plan on using this as a display base with Halloween and Christmas decorations that I have.

This seasons Decocrated Box is pretty amazing. I love each and every piece that came in this box.

You can purchase individual Decocrated boxes (currently the Summer 2020 box is available for purchase), or you can purchase a subscription for the entire year (four boxes – Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer).

Jungle Beat: The Movie – A Fun Animated Family Film

 

If you are following the CDC guidelines, chances are you and your family are spending a lot more time at home than you would normally spend during non-pandemic times. I personally barely ever leave the house, except for doctor’s visits (ones I can’t do via Zoom) or to pick up medications.

Because I am spending a crazy amount of time at home, I am desperate for things to see and do to occupy my time.

My family and I are always on the look out for movies we can watch together. My kids are older (23 and almost 21), so usually they go for comedies or horror movies. My husband and I are “big kids” at heart, so we will often look for movies that people of all ages can enjoy – including animated films and ones that are seen more so as “kiddie films.”

I recently had the opportunity to review a new, family friendly, animated film that took me by complete surprise. It’s called Jungle Beat: The Movie.

I will be honest with you. I’m not always a fan of films that I’ve never heard of before, and by that I mean advertised on television or in advertising. In my experience, those types of films are not really that good. They usually have a very low budget or they are put out by itty bitty film studios. BUT… then I learned that Jungle Beat is NOT some no-name film. It’s actually based on a series by the same name.

In my defense, my kids are young adults. Jungle Beat, the series, must have come out long after my kids graduated from high school.

The Jungle Beat series features short episodes (only a few minutes long) featuring animals in crazy predicaments. You can learn more about Jungle Beat (the series) on their official website, JungleBeat.TV.

When I heard about Jungle Beat: The Movie, I looked up the trailer. I always look up the trailer for films.

The trailer looked really cute, so I figured why not give the film a chance.

Here is the trailer for the film.

 

It looks really cute, doesn’t it?

Here is the official synopsis of the film;

One morning, the animals of the jungle wake up to discover that they can speak. They’re even more amazed when they learn the reason why: There’s an alien in the jungle! Little Fneep has come to conquer the planet and has brought some crazy tech with him, including a translation device that lets them talk for the first time.

Unfortunately for the intergalactic Scaldronian empire, but fortunately for the jungle, Fneep is a terrible conqueror: He’s homesick, he’s crashed his ship, and he’s no match for the antics of Munki, Trunk and the gang.

Our heroes won’t let a little alien conquest get in the way of a good time or a new friend! As the animals help him on his journey home, he learns that friendship could be the greatest force in the universe. But is it a match for a spaceship full of aliens?

I watched this film on my own. I wasn’t sure what to expect, so I didn’t want to watch it with my husband and kids (yet).

This is such a cute film! This is a marvelous film for the whole family. Young children will love the action and the characters, older children and adults will appreciate the humor (little kids will too). It’s just an all-around, feel good, ideal family film.

The characters are all darling. I think my favorite is Rocky the Rhino. He has a delightful innocence to him, and he behaves a lot like a dog.

Humph the Hedgehog and Baby the baby ostrich are also favorite character of mine from this film.

Since I’ve never head of Jungle Beat before, I assumed this was a musical film, with a lot of singing and songs. That is not the case at all. There were some wildebeests that tried to see who was the best singer, but they didn’t really break out into song.

The story line is wonderful with a great lesson in friendship and how love can conquer all.

The animation is suburb. It’s all CGI. Some CGI (Computer Generated Images) look horrible, but not in this film. They look perfect. They put great detail into this film from start to finish.

The characters are all charming. It’s hard not to like any of them, even the “bad guy” (Fneep’s father).

I enjoyed this film from start to finish. Not once did I look at it as a “kiddie film.” This is a film for all ages to enjoy.

If you are interested in learning more about this film, you can visit it’s official website, JungleBeattheMovie.com. The film can also be found on social media. Their links are on the top right of the film’s official website.

You can see what others are saying about the film on social media using the hashtag #JungleBeattheMovie.

The film is currently available on Amazon Prime, Apple TV and Google Play.

How to Design a Bedroom: A Celebrity Guide to Perfecting Your Home’s Style

 

The bedroom is one of the most personal areas in our home. Because of this, it is also often the last room that we decorate. It’s not that it’s the least important. It’s the opposite, in fact. We get stuck trying to think of the best way to decorate this area that it takes months, sometimes years to really perfect it.

Thankfully, we have the internet to take inspiration from. There are plenty of interior designer tips that teach us how to properly design a bedroom for maximum comfort and style. Celebrity homes in particular are very aspirational as they show us what’s possible when we have the means to create the space of our dreams. 

If you’re still stuck trying to design your bedroom, here’s a celebrity-inspired guide to help you out.

Use ambient lights

The bedroom is a place of rest so you’ll want to create an ambiance that makes it easy to relax. One of the best ways to do this is with lighting. Even if you don’t have the decor right yet, if you have the right lighting, you can instantly turn a room from sterile to staycation. 

Replace your old white light bulbs with ones that emit a soft warm glow. These are perfect for the evenings since they are not too bright and they’ve been proven to help relieve stress.

Orientation is key

Your bed’s orientation matters a lot for many reasons. Aside from aesthetics, how your bed is positioned in the room affects your psychology. Many will suggest that you position the bed where you can have the best view of the outside. However, from a subconscious standpoint, this isn’t so good since we humans are primed to want to stay away from unsafe objects like doors and windows.

There really is no right answer here. The best orientation depends on what you feel the most comfortable in. Experiment with a few positions and settle on one that best works with your sleeping habits. 

Opt for multi-functional side tables

Your bed should have side tables for easy access to items that you need. Most people situate their lamps here but you can also place other things such as a plant, books, and personal mementos. You’ll want it to have storage so the top is not filled with clutter. Here you can store things like your electronics, journal, glasses, etc.

Spoil yourself with a few touches

There’s nothing wrong with adding a couple more relaxing touches to your bedroom. After all, the goal is to get as much rest in this area so don’t hesitate to add other bedroom products, like a weighted blanket, noise machine, candles, and humidifier. These will contribute to the calm ambiance of the room making it easier to fall asleep at night.

Paint your ceilings

The ceiling is the first thing we see when we wake up and yet it’s one of the most overlooked areas of the bedroom and yet it’s the first thing we see when we wake up. You’ll want to paint this surface with a subtle color that’s pleasing to the eye. Think gentle blues or greens. A good rule to keep in mind is to pick a hue that’s slightly lighter than your wall. This visually lowers the ceiling, making your bedroom walls feel more closer and intimate. 

Use luxurious linens

The mattress will probably be your biggest purchase in the bedroom. But next to that, you should invest in a good set of linens to cover your bed with. There’s nothing quite like sleeping and waking up to soft blankets caressing your skin. When shopping for sheets choose fabrics that are 100% cotton or linen. For pricier ones, go for silk or cashmere. If you’re shopping by thread count, don’t go any lower than 350.

Which of these steps have you yet to do in your bedroom? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

 

 

RED Chocolate – A Guiltless Indulgence with LESS fat, calories and sugar

 

Chocolate Candy

I LOVE chocolate. I really, really, REALLY love it. I have a piece of chocolate usually every day. I keep an assortment on hand so I can have a piece or two every day.

I know that chocolate has a lot of fat and calories. I also need to keep my sugar intake in check. For those reasons I make sure to only have a small piece or two. I also try and eat dark chocolate (85% or higher) because it’s a healthier option compared to milk chocolate.

I also consider myself a bit of a “chocolate snob.” I prefer quality chocolates over cheap chocolates.

If you are like me and you LOVE chocolate, but you don’t like to indulge in it too often because you worry about calories, fat and sugar, then listen up! I have something that is going to get your attention.

I was sent to review some chocolates from a brand called RED Chocolate. I am always excited when I am sent chocolate to review, but I was super excited about RED Chocolate. You see… RED Chocolate has up to 50% LESS calories and 30% – 40% LESS fat than other chocolate.

If that wasn’t great enough, RED Chocolate has NO ADDED SUGAR. It’s natural sweeteners comes from plants.

The chocolate is also Keto-friendly and Weight Watchers friendly too.

Now can you see why I was super excited to try this chocolate out?

I will admit that I was a bit skeptical. How can chocolate with less fat and sugar actually taste good? I honestly was expecting it to taste like chocolate “cardboard.”

RED Chocolate sent me their dark chocolate varieties to review. They do have milk chocolate varieties as well. My review is only for the dark chocolates.

I could not wait to try the first piece of this chocolate. I was anticipating it to be very bland, but I was seriously mistaken. RED Chocolate is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! You would never know that this chocolate is made with less fat and sugar. It tastes EXACTLY like similar chocolates.

I like the bitterness of dark chocolates, and this chocolate did not disappoint. Maybe it’s because the cocoa used to make this chocolate comes from the Ivory Coast of Africa. There farmers select, roast and grind the cocoa beans to perfection. And that is no exaggeration! These chocolates are incredibly delicious.

I have given pieces of this chocolate to my family members (husband, daughter and son). Not one of them could guess there is less fat and sugar in this chocolate. They all thought it was “regular” dark chocolate.

My husband is not a fan of dark chocolate (he likes milk chocolate better) and even he thought this was “regular” dark chocolate. He was surprised when I told him that it was made with less fat, less sugar and had less calories than other dark chocolates (the same applies to the milk chocolates as well).

RED Chocolate is available in;

  • 60% Extra Dark Chocolate
  • Dark Chocolate with Orange and Almond
  • Milk Chocolate
  • Milk Chocolate with Hazelnuts and Macadamia
  • Milk Chocolate Pralines with a Smooth Nut Filling
  • Milk Chocolate Pralines with a Coconut Nut Filling

Now I wish I had asked the brand if they could have sent a variety of flavors instead of all dark chocolate. The other flavors sound so good.

RED Chocolate is available in large bars (broken up into individual squares you can break off), and single bars (a few squares in one package).

Their squares look like faceted gems, which is a nice touch.

You can purchase RED Chocolate directly from their website, RED-Chocolate.com. They offer a flat rate shipping, which is nice. You can also purchase the chocolates from Amazon (this is NOT an affiliate link).

You can also check out the brand on Facebook (I did not find other social media accounts for the brand).

RED Chocolate has a new fan. I’ll be sure to purchase from them as soon as the chocolate I have is gone. It’s my new favorite chocolate – one that I don’t have to feel guilty about enjoying.

Welcome to #CampWarnerBros – Week #1 – Super Hero Week!

 

School’s Out! It’s summer time! It’s the time of year that most children look forward to. They can sleep in late, hang out with their friends and go on fun adventures with their families. Another thing that kids look forward to is summer camp. Sadly, due to the current state of affairs, summer camp might not be an option for many kids this year.

Just because your child can’t attend summer camp this year, doesn’t mean they can’t have a fun time this summer. You can have your own camp, right in the comfort of your own home.

Warner Bros. wants to help make your child’s summer experience super fun, whether they attend camp or not, with their first ever Camp Warner Bros.

I was lucky to be chosen as a Camp Warner Bros. Camp Director. Each week, for the next several weeks, I will share with your some fun summer camp ideas, crafts, games, movies and more, compliments of Camp Warner Bros.

This is the first week of Camp Warner Bros. The theme for the week is Super Heroes.

What kid doesn’t love super heroes? Even girls like super heroes, or at least in my experience they do.

Growing up I LOVED Wonder Woman (Linda Carter… yeah… I’m giving away my age). I thought she was the coolest person on the planet. I wanted a golden lasso and an invincible jet plane.

Whenever me and my friends played super heroes, I was always Wonder Woman. It didn’t matter that I looked nothing like her. In my mind I did.

I work with children, and I know how much they love super heroes. So much so that they like pretending they are their favorite super hero and acting out action scenes. Even my 6th graders last school year pretended to be super heroes and have “battles” with their super hero nemesis.

I have a special video for all Camp Warner Bros. campers (you and your child!), from Batman himself. I hope you will check it out with your child. Batman has some fun games he wants to play with your child and other Camp Warner Bros. campers.

 

What did you think if Batman’s fun activities? How did you do with the memory game? I did really good (I got them all correct!).

I’m sure now that your child has watched Batman’s special video for all Camp Warner Bros. campers, he or she is probably looking forward to some fun pretending to be their favorite super hero. Or, he/she might want to create their very own super hero.

One thing we’ve done with the kids I work with is provide them with scrap pieces of material, old clothing, craft glue, embellishments and cardboard and let them creature their own super hero costume. Not only is this a creative activity to help pass the time away, it’s also a great way for your child to utilize their creativity and imagination. Plus what ever they create they can wear and play with all summer long.

Here are a few examples the kids I worked with made.

Old clothes and wings made out of cardboard make for a fun costume.

Old pajamas and a super hero mask make great costumes too.

Tie Dye pants, fabric painted shirt and a mask made out of foam board.

The above photo is an actual costume. If your child has a super hero costume, they can always use that to play around in as well.

You can also check out Pinterst for more fun ideas to create your own super hero costume.

Go ahead. Gather up all your old clothes, scrap pieces of material, tie dye kits, cardboard an anything else you can think of and let’s see how creative you and your child can be. I would LOVE to see your photos. Feel free to share them at Kimberly “at” SheScribes “dot” com (replace “at” with a @, and “dot” with a .). I would love to add some reader’s photos to this post. I would love to see what kind of awesome super hero costumes you can make.

Speaking of super heroes, after your child has finished with their one of of kind super hero costume, why not wear it while watching a move about super heroes? A great choice would be LEGO DC: Shazam! Magic and Monsters.

As a camp director, I was given the opportunity to see the movie for myself.

I love the LEGO movies. Not only are they a lot of fun to watch, I think it’s really creative how the film makers made everything in the film look like it was made out of LEGO bricks. LEGO movies are also really funny, and this film is no exception.

This is the first time that the Justice League gets to meet Shazam!

Unbeknownst to the Justice League (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman…), Shazam! is really a 10 year old orphan boy named Billy Batson.

Billy has always wanted to be a super hero. He’s always admired them, even when he was younger.

Thanks to the help of a wizard, Billy can transform himself into Shazam! simply by shouting out his super hero name (Shazam!).

The Justice League is quick to ask Shazam! to join them after he helps them fight off Mr. Mind’s minions. Soon they find that Mr. Mind is not the only bad guy in town, and they need Shazam! now more than ever. The only problem is, Billy is afraid that if they learn he’s only a boy, that they won’t want anything to do with him.

It soon becomes apparent tot he Justice League that age is only a number, and even the youngest person can be the mightiest of heroes.

I loved this film. I thought it was a lot of fun. It’s just as good as the other LEGO films that were released in theaters.

I really liked the new characters (monsters), especially the batman monster (not to be confused with the real Batman).

Seeing your favorite super heroes as children is funny too. They bicker and act just like kids would do. They also have to get creative with their super hero vehicles since they are turned into pint sized versions of their adults selves.

I liked the ending of the film too. I honestly didn’t see it coming. Let’s just say that it’s a VERY happy ending for Billy Batson.

Check out the film’s trailer.

 

This is a great film for super hero wannabes, fans of DC comics, and fans of LEGO movies. I was pleasantly surprised.

I hope that you’ll check out my site next week for week #2 of Camp WB Bros., where I’ll have more fun ideas you can do with your camper this summer.

Tech Aids for Home-Based Caregiving

The next decade promises to bring challenges and opportunities for seniors and their caregivers. As Baby Boomers pass retirement age, they’re joining a growing demographic that will need assistance. The caregiving market is almost 300 billion dollars, and all signs point to it continuing to grow.

Caring for seniors at the home can be challenging. This is particularly the case for people who have restricted mobility or medical complications. However, assistive technology is rising to this challenge. There are more options on the market than ever before, and this tech can support both caregivers and seniors.

Ride Booking Services

Ride booking has become a vital service for people of all ages, and seniors are now joining this trend. These services are especially useful for people who live in the suburbs or countryside and don’t have their own car. It allows the senior or their caregivers to go for groceries, attend theater productions, meet up with friends, and more.

However, not every senior wants to use an app. Lyft and Uber, along with lesser-known companies like GoGoGrandparent, also offer ride booking via phone. It varies by the company, but some of them offer more than just driving services. For instance, some companies will text caregivers when the senior is picked up, with a follow-up text when they arrive at the destination. Options like these help seniors stay independent while also giving caregivers peace of mind.

Smart Home Sensors

These devices are tiny, inexpensive, and blend into the background. They’re also palm-sized powerhouses that quietly monitor and manage the home. You can find sensors that:

turn on the lights when someone enters the room
alert caregivers when the senior leaves the bed
automatically lock the doors at night
shut off stoves and burners
adjust the thermostat
record when the medicine cabinet is opened
alert the authorities if a fire alarm goes off

Most of these sensors can be controlled from a central hub. Once they’re properly set up, they’re easy to manage. The beauty of smart home sensors is that they automate many of the small tasks that fall on a caregiver. This relieves some of the mental weight of caregiving. With these small details handled, a caregiver can focus energy where it’s needed the most.

Medication Tracking Devices

At one end of the scale here are smart phone apps, that may beep when it’s time for medication. They may also have features like showing pictures of which pills are to be taken, which helps seniors who are managing their own medication. Certain apps may take things a step farther, for instance by updating calendars with medical appointments and monitoring blood glucose levels.

However, phone apps aren’t the only option available in this field. You can also find specialized pillboxes. These store and dispense medications and may track when they’re taken. This creates a record which can help doctors monitor how the senior is responding to the medicines.

Medical Alert Systems

There’s been a trend in recent years of consolidating technology into one device. That’s very apparent in medical and life alert systems. Despite the name, many of these devices are capable of much more than simply detecting a medical emergency. These systems can:

record falls
monitor activity levels
track movements via GPS
connect to a response team via two-way voice
remind the wearer to take medications

There are many such systems on the market, available at a wide variety of price points. It’s a good idea to check out medical alert system reviews before buying one. This will help you choose a reliable product with the right features for you.

Videoconferencing and Telemedicine

Going to the hospital for non-urgent tasks like medication updates can be an all-day ordeal. This is especially true for seniors nowadays, as Covid-19 potential puts them at greater risk.

Telemedicine through videoconferencing tech is becoming a widespread and accessible option in many hospital systems. Software like FaceTime, Skype, and Zoom can be used in virtual doctor’s visits. Here, the caregiver and senior can connect with a medical team in real time. It functions just like a visit to the hospital, but with all the convenience and comfort of home.

Virtual Assistants

Virtual assistants like Alexa and Siri act as great hands-free tools for both caregivers and seniors. The voiceactivated commands mean that a caregiver can easily multitask, putting in delivery orders or controlling door locks remotely while they work. Meanwhile, seniors can cue up audio books and music. They can also connect with loved ones through virtual assistants without having to fumble with small buttons.

Mesh Wi-Fi

Several of the assistive technologies listed above depend on a strong and steady Internet signal to function. This can be a tall order, particularly in rural homes and areas with spotty coverage. Mesh Wi-Fi systems use several routers that have been strategically placed around the house. This creates a strong signal in every room, a signal that often extends to the surrounding yard. Samsung, Google and Amazon all offer mesh systems that support a wide variety of assistive tech.

Caring for a senior can be a difficult job. However, there are tech aids on the market that can solve many of the problems that caregivers are juggling. Assistive technology can keep track of complex medication schedules, detect accidents, call for medical help and allow videoconferencing with doctors and more. This new wave of technology takes over some of the tasks of caregiving, freeing up time, energy and quality of life for both caregivers and seniors.
