What's in my bag?

Disclosure:  I received a free sample of the Olivia Tote bag to facilitate this review.  However,  all opinion are 100% my own.  No other compensation was received.

Now that I'm back working,  I always make sure that I balance my family life, my business and my work. I plan ahead and work side by side with my husband to achieve this.  And of course equipped myself with accessories that would help me with my day to day needs.

I'm always on the go and take my work with me.  I always wanted a large bag, big enough where I can put my Macbook Air or Ipad with me.  I love that I can do this with my Olivia Tote Bag by Donna Bella Designs.  I love the storage capacity, quality of material and workmanship. I love the practical style.  To me simple is sophisticated. 





I take this cute purse with me everywhere I go, Even when I take my kids out.  It has enough room for diapers and wipes so I don't have to take 2 bags with me.  I also love the outer pocket, coz it gives me access to things I use a lot like keys and celphone. 

Overall, I give this bag 2 thumbs up for the design and functionality!  I truly love it!

Believe in Heroes®

*Disclosure: I'm participating  in the 2014 Believe in Heroes® blogger campaign I received compensation as part of the program. 



I'm so thrilled to share this campaign with you.  It's a great opportunity to give back and help support our servicemen that has fought and preserve our freedom.  Some of them incurred physical and mental injury while fighting for our country.  This could be a challenge once they return to civilian life.  

Wounded Warrior is an organization that provides unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members.  They are committed to raise awareness and enlist the public's aids for the needs of injured service members.  Their mission is to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation's history.  




With a limited income resource and living on a budget I don't have a lot to give.  I'm so delighted with this campaign because I'm able to support our heroes just by grocery shopping and by using the Wounded Warrior coupon portal for great savings. I know you can print your coupons everywhere else but this is one place that support a great cause.   Each participating brand and retailer will help raise funds and awareness for WWP through the Believe in Heroes campaign. Coupons are available through November 30, 2014.

Believe in Heroes® was establish in 2010 to bring grocery retailers, trusted brands and shoppers together to raise funds for WWP, a non-profit organization whose mission is to honor and empower Wounded Warriors.  The campaign has generated $16 million for WWP to date and has helped enable the expansion of its critical veteran programs that now directly serve more than 40,000 injured service members.

There's so many ways to help, you can purchase Believe in Heroes® merchandise in stores or online.

Cascade Shining Platinum Party Review and Giveaway: A Taste of Comfort Food

This review was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Cascade. I was provided the featured product free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% mine


What if I tell you that there's a product out there that saves you time in doing your dishes by skipping the pre-wash?  Yes, Cascade Platinum does that!  You don't need to pre-wash or pre-soaked your dishes before loading them into your dishwasher.  I had an opportunity to try this one out.  It was too good to be true so when I received my sample package I gave it a try right away.  I was so stoked after I checked my dishwasher,  my dishes was spotless!

Part of the campaign was to invite a few friends and have them witness first hand the cleaning power of the  Cascade Platinum.  I baked some brownie the night before and showed my friends the dirty pan.  I had my brownie pan run through my dishwasher during the party so I can show the clean pan to my guest later.  As expected they were amazed by the result.  At the end of the party, I gave my guest a pack of Cascade Platinum Pacs and Rinse Aid so they get to try it.

The pot I use to make the mac n' cheese

Dirty Brownie Pan


The yummy Asian ginger and garlic baked chicken wings!!!  So good
