Pink Lining Review

I was extremely excited when I was offered the chance to review a diaper bag from Pink Lining recently. I was hopeful that the bag would be multi-purpose though, as I only have a 5 year old right now. 

I was thrilled when my Queensdale Tote Blue Birds and Bows from Pink Lining arrived! I took one look at it and realized that it would make the perfect laptop bag for me! I travel daily with work, so I have been searching for a bag to carry my laptop in that was colorful and bright. I got exactly that with this bag! 

I plan on taking very good care of this bag in the meantime though, because I definitely want to be able to use this gorgeous diaper bag for it's intended purpose when I am fortunate enough to have another little one. 

Here is a little about the Queensdale Tote Blue Birds and Bows bag (from their website):
The Poppins diaper bag is perfect for the fashion conscious mommy. It is not only stylish but practical and functional too! The shape of the bag is slightly deeper than most of our other diaper bags so you have more room for your baby things. The front zip pocket is brilliant for keeping mommy things safe and separate from all the baby bits and bobs and has handy features such as a key chain, phone pocket and pen holder. The bag has a shoulder strap that can be adjusted so that it can be made long enough to fit over any stroller handlebars. For information on internal features, visit our standard features tab.

The bag has a cream ground color with blue and yellow birds, green bows, red and blue flowers and red hearts. It is 15 x 14.2 x 3.9in. The outer fabric is made of 80% cotton canvas coated in EVA laminate & 20% nylon. The inner lining is made of 100% nylon.

The inside of the diaper bag is huge and has tons of compartments! 

It also comes with a water resistant changing pad and a zip wet bag!

I would highly recommend Pink Lining diaper bags to anyone! They are amazing diaper bags, and even make great laptop or tote bags if you don't need to use them as a diaper bag! They are made of extremely high quality and are absolutely gorgeous! Be sure to visit to check out their selection today!

Tees For Your Head Review

"We’re looking for people who have a quirky sense of humor and aren't afraid to use it. We've found that these aren't just tee shirts, they’re conversation starters. If you’re on the shy side, give a little eye contact when people are checking out your shirt. If you smile, you’ll start a conversation. The right t-shirt can help you find your tribe."

I am a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl. When I don't have to dress up, I love to be comfortable. I really like wearing shirts that are funny or that are thought provoking. Lots of times my shirts are conversation starters at family gatherings, parties or even while just walking through the mall! 

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Tees For Your Head recently. I chose to review the Feel the Love t-shirt (pictured below). 

The Feel the Love t-shirt says "Feel the Love" in braille, which I think is really cool! What a great conversation starter! The shirts are organic and are a fitted style. They do run a bit small, so they recommend that you order a size larger than you typically would. I normally wear a medium, so I ordered a large which fits perfectly after washing. 

The Tees For Your Head website offers a great Size Chart for very helpful sizing information to help get your order just right. They also have a great selection of witty shirts to choose from for men, women and toddlers. They also offer gift certificates for your nerdy family and friends! 

I would highly recommend Tees For Your Head to anyone. They have a great selection of t-shirts that are funny while remaining classy. Be sure to check out to find the perfect tee for you!

Giani Granite Countertop Paint Kit Review

This year, I decided to change up my typical New Year's resolution. I always say I am going to eat healthier and exercise more, and I still plan to do those things, but I decided to make my actual resolution something different. Something that I had never done before and something that I desperately needed to do. Home improvement projects.

The first project that I decided to take on this year were the counter tops in my kitchen. When I purchased my home 10 years ago, the first thing I said when I walked in the kitchen and saw the sea foam green counters was "these counter tops have got to go". Well, here I was, 10 years later, still looking at sea foam green counters. I have always hated them, it's just one of those things I never bothered to get around to.

Luckily, I was offered the opportunity to review Giani Granite Countertop Paint Kit, so I started off my 2013 resolution with a bang!

Giani Granite is great for kitchen and bathroom countertops, vanities and more! It is fun and easy to apply and will give your kitchen or bathroom a complete makeover without breaking the bank. The Giani kits sell for just $69.95 online or at lots of local Walmart stores. The kit has everything you need to completely redo your counters and it's so easy to do! 

Check out this video from Giani's website:

So, back to my counter tops. As I mentioned before, they were a lovely shade {insert sarcasm} of sea foam green. One of my best friends used Giani Granite on her counters about 2 years ago, so I asked her to assist me since I have never been much of a DIY kind of girl before. She gladly agreed and came over and helped me along the way. 

The process was super easy! First you apply the primer, then let it dry. Then you apply the mineral paints to your liking. I chose the Chocolate Brown kit for my kitchen. My friend and I played around with the colors until we got it just right then left it to dry. Then later that night we applied the first layer of topcoat. We left that to dry overnight and applied the second layer of topcoat the next day. Easy peasy. 

Here is the before and after picture of my countertops:

So, what do you think? 

I absolutely LOVE it!! I just can't say enough about it! I get so many compliments on it and no one can believe that it is paint or that it is so inexpensive! 

I would highly recommend Giani Granite Countertop Paint Kits to anyone and everyone! If you've been putting off redoing your kitchen or bathroom counters, all I can say is: DON'T! This is so affordable and easy and the results are absolutely gorgeous. You will definitely not regret revamping your kitchen or bathroom countertops with Giani Granite!
