Quaker Limited Edition Pumpkin Spice Instant Oatmeal: Fall is the time of year where we all get obsessed with the pumpkin craze, but how can you not? Pumpkin lattes, pumpkin bagels, pumpkin EVERYTHING! In my opinion, it’s all amazing and I can’t get enough. I was in target the other day and noticed they have a whole pumpkin flavor section right when you walk in. It was fun to see all of the pumpkin flavors lined up and ripe for the picking. The one thing that caught my attention was the Pumpkin Quaker Instant Oatmeal. I was a little hesitant and honestly didn’t think it would taste great. But I bought it anyway! To my surprise it is my favorite flavor. It’s not too strong, just a hint of pumpkin. I love it. I highly recommend giving it a try!

Hot Iron Holster: I am the biggest sucker for Instagram giveaways and that is exactly where I discovered this little gem. I entered said Instagram giveaway more than a few times and then decided I just needed to buy the holster. I never win anything anyway. I try to convince myself that I am an organized person, but let’s be honest, my bathroom is one big hot tool mess. This is a game changer. Grab your curling wands, flat irons, and blow dryers and take them from hand to holster. You need this. I repeat, YOU NEED THIS!

Anker 40 W 4-Port USB Wall Charger: 2016 and all it’s technological perks is a pretty sweet time to live in. I mean, there are apps for everything you could ever need, watches that tells us the time, how many steps we’ve taken and how long we slept last night, and FaceTime to connect us to people we love miles away, I don’t know about you, but sometimes I find myself working on my laptop, Pinterest-ing (yes, it’s a verb) from my iPad, and texting from my iPhone. Hashtag: technology addict. And no, this is not a post about how we should be spending less screen time and more real time. This is a shout out for the technology addicts that constantly find themselves searching for a free outlet to charge one of their many devices. I feel you! I travel a lot for work and was on Amazon one day to buy a new charger for my phone so that I could have one for my house and one for my travel bag, when I saw this magic little thing. I can charge ALL the things. AT ONCE. It’s perfect. This baby saves my life. I plug it in at night and by morning my iPhone, iPad, FitBit, and extra batter pack are all charged and ready to go! No more hunting for multiple outlets. No more forgetting my charging cord because I had to put it behind the couch because it was the only outlet left open, nope, none of that. It’s simple. It’s easy. And I love it. If you’ve got a litany of devices this baby is for you. Go buy it on Amazon now and thank me later. You’re welcome.

Ryobi   2 Amp 1/4 Sheet Sander; You are probably thinking what?!? A power tool? A favorite? Yes, that is right! You read that right. This Ryobi sander has become a favorite of mine. I never thought I would want my own power tool of any sort but, it would only be natural for me to have one amongst my other craft tools. Just ask my friends and family–they can attest to that statement. When it comes to craft tools and machines, I am the queen of them! Some might say that I get that from my Dad because if you were to go into his garage you would find tools on tools on tools. Whatever you need, I’m sure he’s got it! When my arsenal of tools just can’t get my craft projects done, I usually ask my Dad what power tool of his I can borrow to get it done. One day as I was raiding his garage looking for some extra coarse sand paper he asked what I needed it for and he enlightened me and reminded me that I shouldn’t waste my time and offered me his electric handheld sander. I thought to myself, duh! Why didn’t I ask for this thing earlier. My friend Taylor and I could have saved so much time sanding our wood crafts we had worked on for hours the week before. I ended up taking it over to her house and we just both laughed at the ease of this little machine. Never again will we sand our wood creations without this Ryobi sander. If you are anything like my friend Taylor and I, we love distressing our painted wood projects and if you get one of these sanders it will change your crafting game and you will be making statements like “I LOVE power tools!” when you thought you’d never say something like that! The Ryobi sander is so easy to use and is the best time saving power tool!
