Have a #DartagnanFeast For The Holiday

D' Artagnan Uncured Bacon

D' Artagnan is passionate about natural and sustainable food and production. They are very serious about quality of their food. We got to try their bacon, a duck leg, and organic chicken thighs. I am hooked on the quality and taste of their food. It was all so delicious.

My son was really happy with the Uncured Applewood Smoked Bacon, which I was surprised at because he is a super picky eater. My husband and I both enjoyed all of the bacon. I like that it is uncured also. The duck bacon reminded us of pastrami and we used it like a sandwich. 

Duck Leg Confit

D' Artagnan is the one place I can get duck. I am a big fan of it since I was a kid. We just broiled this for a few minutes since it is already fully cooked. Then I put it in a frying pan for a couple of minutes too. My daughter loved this. We are a dark meat loving family.

Duck Leg Confit

I would definitely buy the duck leg again. We have D' Artagnan sold at our local grocery store.
You can also order the food online and it will come delivered to you. 

We also received organic chicken thighs which were perfect for us. We always try to get natural or organic meat if possible. Thighs are easy to make and you can pair it with you favorite veggie and rice. Or pasta. I'm so glad companies like this exist. 

D' Artagnan has a great giveaway going on right now. Who wouldn't want to win free food?

Winter Coats Round Up

Winter is Coming

Brace yourselves. Winter is coming. Probably not as bad as you'll see in Game of Thrones. But better to be prepared. Bundle up with a warm winter coat. I still need to pick mine out. I like shopping on Amazon because I sometimes save up credit through Swagbucks and other fun websites. Here are a few coats I thought looked nice.


This Women's coat from Columbia is made with both down and synthetic materials. It comes in a bunch of different colors. I'd go for the plum color of course.

Tommy Hilfiger

If you like a longer coat this one is from Tommy Hilfiger. I like the faux fur detachable hood.
It's also a reasonable price for a Tommy product. 

Steve Madden

I'm digging this Steve Madden single breasted wool coat. This would be for warmer winter days. My personal style usually runs along the lines of the wool coats. I like the classic look. 

Do you get a new winter coat every year? What style do you usually go for?

Modarri Toy Cars


Modarri Toy Cars are amazing. They are the ultimate toy cars. I've never seen anything like them. I was lucky to win a great prize pack of Modarri cars. My daughter wanted them open right away. She wasn't able to put them together yet but my son who is 7 had fun building them. He enjoyed mixing and matching the colors. You can even take the wheels off and put them on any car you want.


I personally loved this purple car. It comes with a small hex tool to make it easy to assemble. You use your finger to steer the car.

Modarri Toy Cars

On your mark, get set, go! I think these would be great for Holiday Gifts. You can buy one car for $19.95 or a 3 car pack for $49.95. They also sell body packs and wheels separately.

S1 DIY Car

I like how they come with cones. You can build your own track or race course.


This red one was a mix n match done by my son. Building and playing with these cars are a fun family time activity. 

I love when toys are unique and allow the kids to use their imagination.
