Brooklyn Bean Roastery Coffee

Brooklyn Bean Roastery


I am a coffee addict. Every morning needs to be started with a cup of coffee. Or otherwise, you probably don't want to talk to me. I've never been a morning person. I love sleep. But now that I am a mom of 2 and soon to be 3, I have to wake up early. For me 7:30 am is early.

I was excited to try these 2 flavors from Brooklyn Bean Roastery. Vanilla Skyline and Express-O comes in k-cups. I use a keurig at home and am always looking for new flavors and brands to taste.


Express-O Espresso Roast

My favorite out of the 2 was the Express-O Espresso Roast. I like flavored coffees, but usually my favorite are medium or dark roasts.

I would definitely recommend these k-cups to those who use the keurig original machine. They have flavors and roasts for all different coffee addicts. They use high quality 100% Arabica beans.

Pinterest For Business And Blogging

Pinterest for Food Bloggers


If you own a business and sell goods, then you should be using Pinterest. Many people go to Pinterest for inspiration and ideas. Some people use it for crafts, recipes, and DIY projects. There are also those that use Pinterest to find gift ideas. 
What can a business, artist, etsy shop owner, and blogger do on Pinterest?
  • Create an account
  • Start with 5 boards that would fit in your category. You should also create a few general boards that you know many people will be looking for.
  • Have one board that is for your business or shop. You can also pin items you are selling in other boards. For ex. If you are selling children's clothing, pin to your store board and have a board for Children's apparel.
  • You don't need to get carried away with creating boards. I learned this while blogging. Let's just say I created way too many boards. 
  • Interact with other Pinners in your area of business. Like, repin, and comment on posts.
  • Use good descriptions for each Pinterest board you create.
  • Have pin it buttons under your products or blog posts. This makes for easy sharing.
  • Make sure you have good quality photos to pin.
These are a few ideas that can get you started. When I first started using Pinterest, it felt like an easy addiction. You could sit and drool over all of the food recipes. If you are a food blogger, then Pinterest will be a big resource for increasing visitors. What do you look for on Pinterest?

Animal Jam Toys

Animal Jam Plushies


My son adores the Animal Jam game made by National Geographic Kids.  Animal Jam toys are now available at Walmart and many other stores. We have found some at our local Walmart and also Toys R Us. The toys are made by a brand called Jazwares. They sell plushies, mini blind box toys, figures, and figures that come with dens. The best part is that they come with a code. This code can be redeemed in game. My son has a membership for Animal Jam and my daughter just plays a non member character. He enjoys decorating his characters, which are animals. These plushies had codes that gave us rare plushies in game. You can then decorate your den with all the plushies you have collected. The dens come with your account in game.



Animal Jam Figures


Animal Jam figures are cute. They come with accessories that come off and you can decorate each figure. They come with wings and hats. And of course, the in game codes.

We have a ton more but the tiny accessories have been collected by my daughter. 



Animal Jam Adopt a Pet Blind Box


The Animal Jam Adopt a Pet boxes are fun because they are blind boxes. This means you do not know what you will get inside. The codes that come with them can be redeemed and you might get gems or an item. You need to redeem 5 of these codes for another special in game prize/item. These boxes are harder to find for us. They run out really fast in the stores. You can find them online on Amazon.



Inside Adopt a Pet


Inside Adopt a Pet boxes you will get a tiny animal, a food dish, and an accessory.

These are great for stocking stuffers. Any Animal Jam player will enjoy them.

Do you have children that play Animal Jam? It is a fun and safe game for kids. You do not need a membership to play. It is also educational because they put real life facts about animals in the game.

Uncle Bubble Toys

Uncle Bubble Toys

Uncle Bubble toys bring you fun new ways to make all different bubbles. You can make tiny bubbles and also very large bubbles. My kids absolutely loved these products. Even my son who is more into video games these days, loved making the large bubbles with the Unbelievabubble wand.

Ultra Bouncing Bubble

The Ultra Bouncing Bubble comes with 2 gloves. You pour the special liquid into a small tray and blow a small bubble. You are then able to bounce the bubble with the gloved hand.


Bubble Watch


The bubble watch is cute for little kids. Its a great idea for stocking stuffers or birthday party favors.
It has a tiny wand and bubble liquid inside.

Bizzy Bubblz

The Bizzy Bubblz is pretty neat. It has these tiny holes, to make tiny bubbles. You rub the bubble liquid on the surface lightly and then blow out.


My daughter using Bizzy Bubblz

The Bizzy Bubblz make super small bubbles. The photo of my daughter using it we added too much liquid to the surface.



Unbelievabubble

This is Noah playing outside with the Unbelievabubble large wand. This was a really cool bubble making tool. Making these really large bubbles. 

Bubbles are the perfect outdoor toy. Everyone loves to make and pop bubbles. 


Do you know anyone who would enjoy making bubbles?

DIY Easy Yarn Hanging

Wall Hanging


It is really simple to make your own wall decor. All you need is yarn/roving, a hoop/wood dowel.

You can try using yarn or wool roving. You can also use a wood dowel rod or even a metal hoop. I used a hoop for my projects at home. I made one with wool roving, which is thicker and fuller.
I also made one with thick yarn. 


Materials

In the photo, the black yarn was of a thicker variety. The purple yarn is basic size. The colorful one on the bottom is roving. Which is unspun wool. People use the roving to make yarn.


Metal Hoops


You can find the metal hoops at a craft store or online. They are called macrame rings. 



Wool Roving

The wool roving I used was from an Etsy Store. It was a sampler bag that included a rainbow of fun colors. I like working with roving because it is so soft and bulky.

Step 1.

You take your desired length yarn and cut it. Fold it over. Grab it from the fold.


Cut and fold




Step 2.

Take the folded end and drape over the ring. Then you pull the tails through the top. It is similar to the way you would make a tulle tutu. The no sew kind.

Keep adding yarn until you get the desired width you want. It is very easy to make. Experiment with different colors and lengths. You can even use ribbon or thin pieces of recycled fabric. 

These wall hangings give a boho vibe to any room. 

Do you enjoy making your own decor?
