Mothers, teachers, business owners, students....the highly recognizable Post-it Note has changed the way we organize.  Post-it Brand products are a true lifesaver.  Getting organized is always at the top of my list at home and in my classroom.  My daily routine would not be successful without Post-it Notes.

This amazing brand is celebrating 35 years of organization and productivity.  The iconic Post-it Note never goes out of style.  The original canary yellow 3x3 Post-it Note from 1980 has evolved into a colorful assortment of products that transform lives by making communication easy, fast and friendly.


The Post-it Brand Word of Color collections are inspired from the style and cultures of nine exotic destinations around the world.  Post-it Brand flags, tabs and notes continue to keep us organized and on top of our game.


I was sent a wonderful assortment of Post-it Greener Notes, Post-it Super Sticky Notes and Post-it Flags.  I use so many Post-it Notes daily.  Being a mother is hard work, and I need to keep appointments and grocery lists in check.  As a teacher, Post-it Notes keep my lesson plans in order as well as give my students something fun to write on for exit tickets.  The durable Post-it Flags sure do come in handy when sending home IEP paperwork. Any Special Ed teachers out there?!  You know what I mean!

The Lumene Bright Now Vitamin C Day Cream with SPF 15 has definitely gone to the top of my list for face creams.  I often have dry skin in the winter and this cream has moisturized my tight, dry skin while protecting it from the sun's harmful rays.  This cream is full of natural antioxidants and Arctic cloudberry seed oil that helps strengthen, brighten and protect.  

Combat the first signs of aging with this luxurious cream.  It absorbs nicely, doesn't cause me to break out and works well under make-up.    I also love that it's made without parabens, formaldehyde donors, minerals oils or synthetic colorants.

Honeywell MyEnergySmart Infrared Heater

Meet the Bundles.  This family thought their only option to stay warm while keeping their energy bills down was to layer on clothes.  With their new Honeywell Infrared heater, they have learned that creating a comfortable, warm house is not as difficult as they thought!


We received this portable Honeywell MyEnergySmart Infrared Heater.  This sleek, black design fits in with our home decor and provides comforting and efficient heating with their revolutionary Infrared Technology. Now we can lower our energy bills by up to 35 perfect!  An energy usage indicator clearly displays the amount of energy being used at a specific time.

The Touch Screen controls on top makes it so easy to use.  Digital LED lights display the room's temperature and desired temperature.  Choose from high, medium and low constant heat settings.  This also comes with a handy remote control.  We were very impressed with its performance.  It easily heated our living room in a short amount of time.



We were able to pre-set two preferred temperature settings to suit my husband and me.  There is a 1-8 hour automatic shut-off timer and 4-way tip-over protection that will automatically shut off the heater if it is tipped in any direction.  This provides extra peace of mind when using this heater in our home.

In the back of the heater is a convenient cool touch handle and cord wrap that lets us transport this to any room with ease.  A permanent filter prevents dust and particles from entering.

This heater has helped keep us toasty warm and we'll be using it for years to come.  If you're looking to save money on your energy bill, look no further than the Honeywell MyEnergySmart Infrared Heater.
