M Design Boutique Review & Giveaway

 M Design Boutique's  Travel Tin Candles Review & Giveaway

Do you love candles as much as I do? Well read on ladies, because I am reviewing some awesome products and even have an giveaway for my fabulous readers. I had the opportunity to review two travel tin candles from M Design Boutique . The owner; Melissa Fouch Machowski , shipped me my review items promptly and within seconds of opening the box I could smell the candles. I was more than excited to light these and right away looked for a lighter to get this babies lit! Melissa sent me the Be My Valentine Soy Travel Candle in chocolate, which she specifically made for me. She also sent me: 

So what do I think? Well I burned the “Be My Valentine Soy Travel Candle ” all night and absolutely loved it. Don't let the word travel fool you in any way. I thought at first that because it was a smaller candle that it might burn out quickly. Boy was I wrong. This candle burned almost all night and isn't any where near done. Same thing with the Chocolate Covered Cherries Travel Candle .

 I loved that these candles gave off an awesome aroma throughout my home and the smell was pleasant. My home smelled so nice, and my visitors even asked what candle was burning. Normally I only burn Yankee candle in my home, but after burning these, I think I am going to make the switch.

The wax is made of soy, which burns 30% longer than paraffin. The wicks are also 100% cotton and are lead-free. The smell is just amazing. I can't get enough of it. Chocolate not for you? No problem, M Design Boutique carries a variety of different scents such as ;Strawberries & Champagne ,Petals (a blend of lavender, rose and jasmine) , Mimosa , Sangria ,

Maple Pumpkin Pie

 Sugar Champagne Coconut Lime,and Victory Ale, just to name a few. She is constantly adding new and hip scents to her shop so be sure to check that out.

Have an event coming up? Maybe a wedding or a shower? M Design Boutique can cover all your needs. These candles would be the absolute perfect event favor gift. The owner also happens to be a graphic designer and can make a custom label l for your event. Not only that, but you can pick any fragrance you think of. You can order these custom candles at bulk  and the minimum order for the bulk discount is 10 candles. Normally these candles are $5, when you order alone. However, when you order in bulk you can get them for as cheap as $2.50 a candle, depending on how many you order. 

For my New York readers you can check out M Design Boutique at the Artists and Fleas weekend market, in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn on Sat February 5th. Mention my blog and you will get a free gift with your purchase.

LG Kompressor LuV300B Vacuum Cleaner Review

First off I want to thank Leanne from, who held a giveaway a few months back for the LG Kompressor LuV300B Vacuum.  I happened to be the very LUCKY winner of this amazing tool and I am ohh so happy. I moved into this apartment in June and only had a small Vacuum that was only good for light vacuuming. So when that winning e-mail came, you can imagine my surprise, Even called my boyfriend at work to tell him the good news. 

     The Vacuum came last week and was shipped to my mother's house. I have  to say she was JEALOUS at this WIN! And even begged to buy the vacuum from me. NO WAY! I did let her borrow it for a day to ease her jealousy and show off my fabulous new WIN!
     So it was love at first site! No doubt it bears the name LuV300B! And it stands true to its title! It is stylish to say the least. Living in New England and having snow does a number on my carpets and floors. All the debris and dirt from our shoes is making a mess of my house these past few months. With the LuV300B I am finding the solution to my every day frustration of a dirty floor. This Vacuum has so many features. 

Product Features

  • Motorized compression system to compact dirt and greatly reduce the dust cloud when emptying the bin- At first I was thinking that I wasn't picking up that much dirt because the bin seemed like it wasn't getting filled as much as it did with my old vacuum. However when I emptied the bin I noticed something different. The dust was all compressed together in a tight pile, it wasn't loose and all over the place. It's so cool because when your vacuuming you can actually see inside the canister the air compressing it together. 
  • DualForce + technology enables two additional air pathways plus an enhanced motor picks up more dirt and debris across a wide suction area
  • The Click 'N Go Wand detaches easily and gives you up to 15 feet of reach for easy cleaning from floor to ceiling- I cleaned the fan in my bathroom which was a dust magnet and was disgusted at how much dust was actually up there. 
  • The 40 foot long reach cord means changing outlets less frequently- I can literally vaccum my whole apartment using the same outlet! I love that I do NOT have to keep changing outlets when cleaning!
  • Certified asthma and allergy friendly by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America- This is awesome since my BF has horrible asthma/

 It collects 3 times the dust of a standard vacuum and this makes me one happy girl!! The suction on this baby is amazing!  I don't have any pets but my mother has a dog and you should have seen how much dog hair this vacuum picked up. She said that two days before she used my vacuum she had spent an hour and a half cleaning her whole house with her current vacuum( which shall remain nameless to protect the innocent! LoL) anyways she used my vacuum two days later and the canister was filled to the max! She couldn't believe it! I couldn't believe it either since this vacuum compresses so much its actually hard to fill. My mother's a very clean person and I couldn't believe the amount of dust and pet hair that the LuV300B picked up from her house. My apartment is smaller, but this vacuum is every home owners dream. 

The only downfall to this vacuum ( If I was forced to find one, is that is kind of bulky. It's not hard to push or anything but if your picking it up to go from one room to the next it is kind of heavy. 

A  +++++ !!

These are my opinions and my views. I was not paid or asked to write this review.

The Fighter

So this past weekend, I finally saw the Fighter. Awesome movie..I don't know if I was destined to like it because two years ago they actually started filming in the town I was living in. Not Only that but my apartment was in four or five scenes.. Hollywood producers actually wanted to use the inside of my apartment as Mark Wahlberg's character's girlfriend house. They ended up going with the house across the street but thats fine, because you can see my apartment for a good amount of time threw out the movie. I was so excited when this was all happening. I actually ended up moving two weeks before they started filming ( unfortunate ..Let me tell you..Because I would have soooo loved to have had Mark W on my property..HAHA..I had no idea that the movie would end up being this big, or this good..Or even to go on and win awards..

Anyways , If ya haven't seen it, I highly suggest that you do.!! And thats all for tonight..I can NOT sleep..It's 3:30 and I have to work at 10 AM..So I better catch some shut eye..

Happy New Year Everyone,
I look back at the following year and I have to say I am really just excited to start this new year. What about you girls? Did you make some resolutions?  Why is it that I feel like I have a million things that I want to accomplish? Maybe I see that when it comes to certain things its time for a change. I wish you all the best with your goals that you hope to and WILL achieve in 2011. Have you ever wanted to help someone so bad, and do everything in power to, only to realize that they are still not ready to help themselves?
