My Interview with Jonathan Scott from HGTV

I recently had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to interview Jonathan Scott, start of HGTV’s shows Property Brothers and Brother Vs. Brother.

Unless you are living under a rock the size of Rhode Island, you have seen Jonathan, and his twin brother Drew doing some amazing things with houses on their shows.

Here is what Jonathan had to say in response to my questions:

$0 Office Makeover Inspired by Staples

My friends at Staples were kind enough to let me pick out a piece of office furniture for my office makeover.

After much deliberation I chose this Sauder August L-Desk in Oak.


It was pretty easy to put together too…so I hear. Of course, I had my husband do all of the dirty work, but I swear, he told me it was pretty easy.

ThermaCELL Mosquito Repellent Dark Bronze Lantern Review

ThermaCELL sent me one of their Dark Bronze Lanterns to review.

We are in full bloom mosquito season here in NC and our back yard is no exception.

We have some wooded areas around us and after a good rain the mosquitoes come out swinging…or biting…or stinging, whatever it is they do.

I’m not a fan of bug spray but we do use it if we have to. There are other options out there and they can be pricey, dangerous, annoying, etc.

Andrea from Ozeri sent me their 8″ Green Earth Textured Ceramic Nonstick Frying Pan to review. {ARV $59.99}

You can get them on sale right now for just $25.95 through Amazon Prime!

I was using both traditional non-stick and cast iron pans in my kitchen and I have to say that this ceramic pan sets itself apart from both of those.

My traditional non-stick pans have started to flake apart at the coating and that is not something I want getting in my food as I cook.

SelectSpecs Glasses Review

Kathryn from sent me a promotional code for  a pair of glasses from their Economy Collection.

I usually wear contacts, but do need to have glasses to wear when my contacts are out (late night, early morning) or if my eyes just need a break once in a while.

I do not want to purchase expensive glasses since I do not wear them much, and also because I have a 2 and 4 year old at home. Yes, they have destroyed my glasses in the past.

ChargeKey Portable USB Charging Cable Review

I was sent a ChargeKey Portable USB Charging Cable to review {ARV $29}

The ChargeKey is available in 2 different formats to accomodate both the iPhone 5 and micro usb phone devices.

I have a Google Nexus phone and it worked perfectly for me. I always seem to run out of phone battery when I am working on the computer outside as my girls are playing in the backyard. I am quite a distance from the nearest charging outlet so it was always an issue for me.

I do own a Boba 3G but have never owned a wrap, of any kind, so I was excited to get this Boba Wrap to try out on my 25 lb 2 year old. The maximum limits for the Boba Wrap are 35 lbs and 36 months so I knew it would be a great fit.

Once I opened up my Boba Wrap I was immediately drawn to how stretchy and soft the farbic was. I now understand why so many moms love the Boba Wrap for their precious little newborns and their soft and sensitive skin, and continue to love them throughout their childs first few years.
