Simply Spuds Steamables – Sweet Potatoes

This was my second purchase of Simply Spuds Steamables, the first were of the Golden Potatoes and the men really liked them.  These Sweet Potatoes are tripled washed, nicely sized and are steamed in the microwave, ready in 8 minutes.  They are great for a quick mid-week meal and when you don’t want to turn on the oven.

Added a little butter, hubby wanted brown sugar but he didn’t need the extra calories

This is definitely going to be a pantry staple.

The Sugar n Spice Voxbox that I received from Influenster contained a box of Dickinson’s Original Witch Hazel Oil Controlling Towelettes. These towelettes are suppose to lift dirt and remove impurities from the skin without irritation.  They contain 3 simple ingredients, Witch Hazel, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice and Sodium Benzoate which makes them oil free, non-drying and can be used on all skin types.

I’ve never had problem skin and only use makeup removal cloths so I asked my oldest son to test them as he suffers from occasional breakouts and teenage acne.  Unlike my youngest, he is not particular with his grooming products so he agreed to help with the review.  He used one towelette each morning for a week and this was his report:

Likes:

  • didn’t irritate or sting his face
  • didn’t make his face dry
  • noticed his face was clearing
  • great size to use on face and neck
  • packaged great for travel

Dislikes:

  • the smell, it didn’t stink but didn’t smell that great either -(Witch Hazel has always had a distinct odor)

Sugar and Spring VOXBOX

 

This is NOT a paid endorsement.

 I received the product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes, opinions are completely my own.

REPOSTING FROM LAST YEAR – THE DECK STILL LOOKS GOOD AFTER 1 SEASON!

A few weeks ago we purchased Deck RESTORE from Home Depot because it was time to start the outdoor projects and staining the deck was #1 on my list.  In all honesty, I don’t like using stain because it’s messy, time consuming and never seems to last long enough for me.  Staining usually highlights the imperfections of the wood, however, this product although a bit pricey hid the imperfections, wasn’t messy or time consuming,  I just hope it lasts longer than 2 seasons!

My OOTD was thrifted from my oldest son’s closet – he put the tshirt and shorts in the box slated for a Goodwill donation – lol

We purchased the 5 gallon container (cheaper than the kit which contained only 2 gallons and a roller)

   a Restore Roller; we had a pan and brush in the garage.

The color is Adobe

Because the product was sitting in the garage for 2 weeks, I had my son do a little “remixing”

Swept the deck to remove dust and debris

It wasn’t necessary to Power Wash the deck, so just used ammonia and water to clean off surface dirt

The lid was very easy to open once the plastic tab was removed.

I thought I would need pliers which is why they are pictured in the tray above.

 Very easy pour – thick consistency

Roll the 1st coat and allow to dry at least 3 hours – it took me a little over an hour to complete.

I went grocery shopping and did the 2nd coat the next evening after work.

 After the 2nd coat

From this …

To this!

The best part was the easy cleanup with just plain water – definitely beats staining any day!
