Lampe Berger Review

Do you know of a better way to make your home smell nice and inviting other than a lamp from Lampe Berger? Recently I was sent this lovely lamp.
and with this came the fragrance of Orange Cinnamon. I think this will be nice for this time of year being autumn and with Christmas not that far away.
Orange scent is always nice and makes any home smell good and the cinnamon in with it is even more pleasant. This is the Satin Red Lampe. I love the bright color too.This lamp also comes in matted white so either color would be great at holiday time.

With the kit you get the lamp, the scent and a funnel to pour in the scent.First you fill the lamp with scent, then you put in the wick and you wait for 20 minutes if its your first time using the lamp. You then light the top of the lamp (wick) and wait for 2 minutes then blow out the flame. Put the cap which is open all the way around for the scent to escape from and then sit back and enjoy while the lamp cleanses and perfumes your home. Once the 20 minutes of use is up, take the top off and replace it with the solid cap to close it. Then it will be ready for the next time you use it. It is recommended not to exceed the 20 minutes for a room of 8 sq. metres.
Your home will smell so great.

You can always replace the scent if you have more by adding some So Neutral blend *about 50 ml* to the lamp. Let it work for 20 minutes then cap the lamp and when its cold, fill it with the new fragrance. Be careful not to go past the maximum level for filling the lamp of 2/3 full. You never mix 2 different Lampe Berger Home Fragrances with the only exception being the adding of So Neutral.

It was in 1898 the amazing Lampe Berger story started. Maurice Berger was a pharmaceutical dispenser who invented a system of diffusion
by catalysis, for which he filed a patent.

With over 5 million litres of fragrances and 800,000 lamps sold every year around the world, Lampe Berger is still a huge success, over a century after it was invented. It was always a French company from the start but enjoys a truly international reputation, distributed in 56 countries, present in 7,000 sales outlets around the world.

I love Lampe Berger and if you would like to take a look at all the fragrances and the lamps they offer you can check them out here. They would make a wonderful gift for someone for Christmas.

Raincoast Books – #PlayTestShare: Family Night! - Giveaway! Canada Only

I think all families with kids have a night set for family night. You play games, do puzzles or crafts or something else. I know kids love games and books so here is a chance to win some of those for your children.
We have 10 blogs participating in this giveaway of games and books that Raincoast is hosting for us again.
For this giveaway, I was able to choose two books or games. I chose Punch Out & Play Game Book which the grandchildren had a lot of fun with.
One book, so many ways to play! Acclaimed artist and designer Laura Ljungkvist invites children to punch out 10 different puzzles and 13 classic games, such as Memory, Go Fish, and Dominoes. Packed with fun, graphic artwork, a variety of games, and plenty of colorful envelopes for easy storage, this book provides hours of play for kids of all ages-all in an attractively priced package.

Sorry about that table cloth. I was at my daughter in law's and never thought to move it. The game the kids are playing is a memory game and Aiden was the winner.

The second book I chose was for adults, the Fantastic Collections
A Coloring Book of Amazing Things Real and Imagined illustrated by Steve McDonald.
In this newest coloring book by the author of the internationally bestselling Fantastic Cities (more than 400,000 copies in print),artist Steve McDonald uses his unique photo-based approach to create beautiful and intimately detailed line drawings of amazing collections of objects. Finding inspiration in the unusual (museum collections, antiques, and quirky toys) and the everyday (leaves, butterflies, vintage cameras, store product displays), McDonald creates playful and immersive illustrations that are as lovely as they are fun to color. The quality of the large, crisp white pagesare conducive to a range of applications, while a middle margin keeps all the artwork fully colorable. A dozen meditative mandalas created from the drawings round out this gorgeous adult coloring book.

Listography: The Game This book is the other one for adults.
May the Best List Win!
by Lisa Nola and Forrest-Pruzan Creative
A new twist on the bestselling Listography journal series (almost 900,000 titles sold), this game invites players to create and share lists based on fun and thought-provoking topics-from geography and pop culture to toothpaste and constellations! With the goal of being the first around the game board, players score points according to the number of similar or unique answers. Every round in the game results in creative thinking, surprise outcomes, and lots of laughs.

You can go here to see the other items offered for this giveaway.

One lucky winner will get to choose two of the books or games of their choice. Canada only and this ends September 20/16
Good luck everyone and thanks to the sponsor.

Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir-US/CAN- Ends Sept. 4/16

A second volume of "Spots-On" super-heroics that are nothing short of Miraculous!

When the treacherous Hawk Moth uses his evil energy to transform the citizens of Paris into super villains, only two amazing heroes stand in his way: Ladybug & Cat Noir! With the help of their magical pets and their Miraculous (jewelry), this incredible duo teams up to outwit Hawk Moth and keep their city safe... but their biggest challenge is balancing their normal lives with their secret identities and newfound powers. You see, Ladybug & Cat Noir are actually Marinette and Adrien, a pair of young students who seem to live a typical teenage life. But even for these two, it's hard to juggle schoolwork, friends, family and growing up when every day is a super-powered adventure!
Becoming Ladybug is a complicated process. First, Marinette needs a "Kwami," which is a tiny magical assistant (called Tikki). She also needs a "Miraculous," which is a magical accessory (her special pair of earrings). Tikki uses the Miraculous to transform Marinette, but her Ladybug super powers only work for a limited time!

It is a good thing that she gets a little help from her superhero partner, Cat Noir even though she insists she doesn't need him. If only she knew Cat Noir's true identity – her school crush, Adrien! It will take a lot – friendship, teamwork and skill – to outwit Hawk Moth.
Will Ladybug and Cat Noir be able to balance their double lives and keep Paris safe? Will they ever find out each other's true identity? Until then – there is a whole city of baddies to defeat… SPOTS ON, CLAWS OUT!

Featuring six more incredible episodes from the action-packed animated series, Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir: Spots On is a high flying collection of heroic adventure that'll have you bugging out!

It features six incredible episodes:
The Evillustrator
Dark Cupid
The Mime

Miraculous™: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir episodes include:

“The Bubbler,”
“Mr. Pigeon,”
“Stormy Weather,”
“The Pharoah,”
and “Lady Wifi”!

Bonus feature: Episode Animatics
Running time approx. 132 minutes.

Rainy Day Giveaway-US/CAN Ends Aug. 20/16

Have you ever wondered just how much rain we get in a storm or a really rainy day? Or do you have a good thermometer that will tell you how hot it is outside? Well here is your chance to win yourself a Rain gauge and a really great outdoor thermometer.
First we have the Outdoor 6" Deluxe Rain Gauge. Check out the video here:
Hubby put ours up today and so far we have almost 1 3/4" of rain in it.

You can see the numbers much better on the site. Hubby said the rain gauge is so easy to put up and it took him all of about 2 minutes to do. He told our son today that he will have to come and check it out. Then he talked about the thermometer and was saying how he loves that too. Our son said it sounds pretty nice and next time he is here he is going to have a look.
We had a little rain this afternoon although not the storm they called for but it might rain more through the night. The blue attachment is what you slide off the back and then you screw it to the board or whatever you are going to place it on. Once its tightened on, you slide the holder onto it and wait for it to rain. I wish I would have had this last week when we really got a downpour. Oh I am sure we will get that again though. So now we will know how much rain we are having. It is sturdy and dependable, and is virtually unbreakable and built tough to withstand the harshest climate, it is even frost resistant. These rain gauges don't discolour in the sun like other brands, they stay easy to read for years. A great way to manage your garden and veggie patch watering so you don't waste water unnecessarily. I know we are going to love our rain gauge.

Then we have the Digital MIN/MAX Weather Thermometer and this I really like too. We had an old thermometer outside our window but this one is much better. Sorry but I took the photo from inside and you can't really see the temp all that great. Check it out here It has a clear easy to read lcd display screen showing the current temperature and the latest min/max temperatures in Fahrenheit or Celsius. Hubby put ours in Fahrenheit so I can read it better. I don't like Celsius. I wasn't brought up learning that so I am old school I guess. This is so easy to read and it is virtually unbreakable so it can stay out even in the winter without having to worry about it breaking on us. These rain gauges won't yellow in the sun like other brands, they stay easy to read for years. Yesterday our temperature outside was 109 degrees Farenheit. This versatile indoor-outdoor thermometer automatically sets the min/max temperatures, or you can easily reset it yourself with the press of a button.It has a clear screen with easy-to-read digital display between -58 F - 158 F Today after our little rain it dropped somewhat to 82 degrees. Hubby fell right in love with this thermometer. Men, right? lol He just couldn't wait to unwrap it and get it hung out. Now we just look out the window and we know what the temperature is all the time. So we have a rain gauge and a new thermometer and you can enter to win both of these today. By the way, I received these products all the way from Australia. It really is a cute thermometer looking like a little house.
This adds a nice decorative touch to the verandah, hang in your greenhouse, shed or wherever you need to see the temperature. Makes a great gift as well!

Get your entries in if you want to win these products. Thanks to the sponsor. Good luck everyone.
