Cable Management for the Win!

Hello!  Can you believe today is February 1st?  Where has this year gone so far?  I swear yesterday it was New Years…but I guess not.

Speaking of New Years, how are everyone’s resolutions going?  Good…bad…have you given up already?  I hope not!  Keep going!  You can do it!

One of my New Years resolutions is to manage things better.  You know, things like time, schedule, money, and cables.  Ugh!  My cable management is terrible.  I just hang my phone charger and Fitbit charger from my lamp (which looks like an Eiffel Tower mind you), but my cats really like playing with them.  And, it probably isn’t good for the cables either.

But thanks to Blue Key World, this problem has been solved!

Blue Key World is a company that specializes in home and kitchen wear.  How cool is that?  They created these nifty little doo-dads that help you with keeping your cables organized.  But not only that, but they create some pretty sweet knifes for your cooking supplies.  Not impressed yet, just wait and see.

They were kind enough to send both mom and I a pack of 6 cable organizers.  These organizers are tiny!  They aren’t very big so it’s perfect to hide behind a shelf or on the leg of a table to keep your cords in order.  What’s even better is they come with a sticky pad on the back.  Just peel off the sticker and BAM!  Stick it to whatever surface you need to!

Now I only used two, one for my phone charger and one for my Fitbit charger.  Just so that way they weren’t hanging on my Eiffel Tower lamp and falling willy nilly.  The hole that holds the cord is big enough for the cord, but small enough that your charger port won’t fall through.  And the matte texture of the organizer helps to hold the cords in place.  How cool is that!

Mom and I both tried them for a week to make sure that they worked.  We also gave my dad one for his phone charger, just to have an extra person try it.  Mom always complained about her phone charger falling out of her phone during the night and waking up to an almost dead phone.  But with Blue Key World’s cable organizer, she hasn’t had to worry about that at all.  Her phone has stayed plugged in all night long.  And my dad?  Not the same issue, but really enjoyed not having to try to find his fallen phone charger at night when he was ready to go to bed.

For me, I have one tiny complaint.  And honestly, it’s not even that big of a deal and it’s not entirely the fault of the cable organizer.  My phone charger has a matte finish on it, just like the organizer.  So my phone charger had a bit of a hard time sliding up and down through the small hole in the organizer.  But if the hole was any larger, my charger port would fall through meaning the organizer wasn’t doing it’s job.  But other than that, it’s great!  My cats aren’t always trying to play with my cables, they are more organized, and they aren’t just hanging around on my lamp all the time.

Overall, if you need a cable organizer, this is the way to go.  If you click here, this will take you to Blue Key World’s Amazon page where you can purchase one of your own.  I promise you won’t be disappointed if you purchase one!  Thanks for stopping by!

It’s A Valentine’s Tablescape

Hello!  I hope you are all ready because this blog post is going to be a fun one!  So hold onto your hats and hold on until the end!  I promise you won’t be disappointed.

*This blog post contains sponsored content from Oriental Trading Company*

So it’s becoming that time again for all of the love.  You know what I’m talking about.  Hearts in red and pink all over the stores shelves.  And not only in the stores, but also online as well.  And Oriental Trading is all about the holidays.

And after much deliberation on what to pick from their website, I finally decided on doing a tablescape.  So after doing a lot of shopping around and putting things in my cart and taking them out, I finally ordered my things and started my tablescape.

Valentine's Day Tablescape Full

And here it is!  I love how it turned out and love each piece that I picked out.  So lets see what I picked.

Valentine's Day Tablescape Center

The first thing is this cute candy jar.  It has a small chalkboard on the front so you can write what kind of candy is in it.  Or, you can draw a heart on it like I did.  But it fits quite a bit of candy in it, so go bananas!

Valentine's Day Tablescape Across

The next thing is the heart tree, if that’s what you want to call it.  It’s a tree in a small pot that you can bend and shape however you want to.  It’s only about 18 inches tall, so it won’t block your view of your loved one.

There’s also the rose garland in the middle of the table.  I added the pink puffball garland and the white puffball garland as well, just to add some stuff to the middle.

Valentine's Day Tablescape Diamonds

And these jewels?  Yep, bought them from Oriental.  I bought a pink, black, and clear pack so I had a variety to spread around the table.  Each color came in a pack of 25 diamonds, so you get a lot of bang for your buck.

Valentine's Day Tablescape Plates

The plates were also purchased from Oriental.  And the silver place mats!  Okay, the place mats were from mom from the last time we worked with Oriental, but they looked great with the rest of the tablescape.  I bought the small candy baking cups from the 99 Cent Store, but they looked so good with the plates.

Valentine's Day Tablescape Overtop

So this is what the table looks like from above!  It’s so cute!

Valentine's Day Tablescape Love

The last thing I got from Oriental was this pretty gold LOVE sign.  It sat so nicely on the cake plate in the background of the photos.  And I must say that I am very excited to put this on my gallery wall in my apartment.

Side note: out cat Kiara is extremely nosy and wants to be in the middle of EVERYTHING.

Valentine's Day Tablescape Kiara

And finally, we found some cute pet clothes for Valentine’s Day at the 99 Cent Store which we had to buy.  Repeat HAD TO.  So we had a little doggy (and kitty) photoshoot for the holiday!

Obviously, Kiara looks annoyed that I took her photo, but I love her all the better!  And Ezzy is on a different couch because she is our senior citizen and I didn’t want to move her.

So that was my fun with Oriental.  I love how the table turned out, but I love the animals as well.  Have a good Wednesday!

My Dog’s Purrrrpose (I Know That’s a Cat, Get Over It)

Hello everyone!  I hope you have all had a great week so far and I hope you are ready for the weekend.

One of the things I always look forward to on the weekends (or maybe a Tuesday and Wednesday depending on my schedule) is seeing all of the dogs at my parents house!  I love all of them, some more than others, but I love them nonetheless.

schmunchy

But dogs are actually really good for our general health.  They help your heart, mind, and body.  Apparently they don’t help the soul like we thought…  Anyway they are very helpful when you need them.

puppyspot_dogs_health_2000px

Take our Rozy Blu for example.  She is very very very very very sensitive.  If she sees that you are upset, she will come and comfort you.  She is a cuddle bug and always knows how to make you feel better.

I believe sometimes, dogs are better than best friends.  They won’t judge you when you are ugly crying.  They listen to all of your problems without interrupting you to tell you their problems.  They (usually) will let you cuddle them and use them as a squishy stress ball.  How many best friends will let you do that?

But dogs are great for your health as well.  Dogs can help lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases!  They can also boost your immune system and help you get the recommended amount of weekly exercise.  Trust me, taking all 5 of our dogs out for a daily walk is a challenge in itself.

Did you know that dogs can be trained to help with more health issues than you think?  Dogs can be trained to identify when someone is having a seizure, help to aid in occupational or speech therapy, and even detect different forms of cancer.  They are smart and they can definitely be more helpful than you think!

rozy

So as I close this up, I love all of the furry pooches.  Ezzy, Scamp, Rozy, Munchy, and the newest edition Maggie.  They can be annoying at times, but for the most part they are the awesome!

And to end this, post a picture of your fur babies in the comments below so we can celebrate them altogether!  Also here are my parents cats and my cats just so they don’t feel left out.
