Online Shopping

Online Shopping

Home shopping seems to be more and more popular these days, especially with our busy lifestyles, I know for me it is a lifeline, as I can not always get out of the house to go shopping.  One company that we (my husband) uses is Amazon, his view is if you can not find it on Amazon, you will not find it anywhere, and it is true, you can search for anything and they have it on their site. We also have, and take advantage of Amazon Prime, meaning we…

E-cigarette Review and Giveaway

I know I have talked about vaping before, we all know someone who smokes and wants to try to give up, or even vape already, perhaps still waiting to try to start their new years resolution.

We all suffer with the January blues, once christmas is over and we have recovered from the new years celebrations, we pack away our tinsel and glitter, and everywhere just looks grey and dull, as we set ourselves to get through January, January is also made worse by the long wait for payday, and is a time to tighten our belts and look to get through the month and beyond.

Speculaas spice had become commonly available in the Netherlands in the 18th century, dutch bakers began to make their…
