Making My Command Center|PinPix Cork Board #bulletinboard


Disclaimer: I have received this product complimentary of the company, but my thoughts and opinions are my own and in no way
persuaded by the company.

Product Review:

I’m starting a command center for my home for convenience and storage in our dining area. We need a central location for all of our important mail, flyers cards, etc. I have been wanting a cork board for the start of the command center, and this PinPix Decorative Bulletin Cork Board was a perfect fit.

This pin cork bulletin board was shipped and packaged very well. There weren’t any defects or improper packing. The board is huge and is great for the start of a kitchen or dining room command center. I have been able to post papers, business cards, and even a light pen cup to the board and it looks absolutely clean.

There is no messy clean up like from a  normal cork board, this cord board has no tears or loose particles. It’s a self healing board, in the sense that the hole that is made will stay self contained and have less of a wear and tear look. I would recommend this board to anyone whose ready to start a home command center.


The price is a bit high, but when you think about how many cork boards you can go through, it’s a great investment.

Site Description

“PinPix is a patent-pending canvas bulletin board created with self-healing technology that minimizes any wear and tear when pricked.

PinPix boards are made from high quality canvas with beautiful designs you will be proud to display anywhere in your home.

Prick the canvas with a pin to display a recipe, photo, note or clipping.

Remove the pin and within the space of 48 hours this hole will partially repair itself due to the self-healing quality of the canvas!

You can use it again and again, yet your PinPix board will continue to retain most of it’s original quality and appearance!”

Retail Price: $60.44 (30×20 Size Pictured Above)

Do you have a command center at home? 

Would you use this bulletin board?



My New Retro Look

My New Retro Look

I’m so excited for my new look this year. I’ve worn glasses ever since middle school and although I prefer contacts, wearing glasses has grown on me. Especially since some of the old vintage style “Buddy Holly” and cat-eye glasses have been bursting back on the scene, the retro look has become more of part of my style.

I normally go into the eye doctor to get my exam and prescription. There were times when I purchased at my doctor’s office but I’ve always loved the convenience and variety online ordering can bring.

I’ve purchased from on several occasions and I’ve always been happy with the glasses that I bought. All you have to do is enter your exam prescription numbers and you can order prescription eyeglasses or contacts through the website. The glasses are durable, come in variety of styles and the prices are convenient for everyone.

This time I wanted to try some new looks and I’m not disappointed. I definitely wanted to choose some styles that were retro and sleek and I found 3 designer pair that I fell in love with.

Package Included:


Eyeglass Kit W/ Eyeglass Cases:

What helped me choose my designer frames, was the option to upload my photo to see how the glasses would look on me. I love this option because you can (virtually) try on your glasses using the “Try On View” feature.

Influenster Jingle Vox Box Unboxing and Review

PlutoCase Product Review and Giveaway Contest

I absolute love taking photos and I love different ways I can showcase my photographs. One of the ways that I thought I would be able to showcase them was by customizing a phone case. Luckily, I know of a really cool company called PlutoCase.

I couldn’t wait to choose which pictures I would actually upload, but I wanted them to represent my photography style, as well as the things I love.

Here are the photos I chose:

ABOUT PlutoCase


I have been using my PlutoCase phone cases for the past month and I have enjoyed each and every one of them. I chose to use a different case everyday to check the durability, strength, and effectiveness of these cases. The website was also very easy to navigate. Initially, the site would not allow me to enter any data in the ordering fields, but once I notified the company, they were able to fix the issue immediately.

 There was fast delivery for these my customized phone cases. They came in the mail about a week from ordering and that was only because I ordered it on a Thursday. If you place your order on a Monday, they would probably reach you by Friday, if not before. They were individually wrapped, protected. and in one piece, which I was thankful for.

I have been wearing each customized phone case on my Samsung Galax S5 and have enjoyed these cases thoroughly. I was so impressed by the PlutoCase company and how well my customized phone cases came out. They are the best I’ve seen for such a low cost.  I’ve had a few people ask  about my customized PlutoCase phone cases and I would definitely recommend them. I absolutely love how they turned out!

Here are shots of my phone cases:


COST: $33 Retail Value


iPhone 4/5c/5s/5/6 cases  & Samsung Galaxy S3/S4/S5 cases


The phone case is sturdy and durable. I have dropped my phone since using these cases a few time and have not had any cracks or breaks.

The photos that were used to customize my case, were virtually and almost perfectly the same color and quality.

The phone case was easy to place on my phone.

The phone case is slim and sleek.

Very high quality and durable.


The phone case gloss option is a bit slippery.

If you use your phone like I do, (which is a lot), the phone will slip out of your hand quite a bit.

Although the pictures I chose to upload turned out great, you have to be careful with the sizing and coloring of the pictures you choose. There is a wrap option for “wrapping” the picture around the phone case.

The matte phone cases tend to have a darker constrast or tint to them, so choose your photo wisely.


Definitely worth the purchase. These phone cases are high quality at a low cost. You can’t beat that!

First Impression: I have not had the chance to use this product yet, and I’m hoping I don’t have too. It will definitely come in handy the next time my husband goes biking riding on his motorcycle. He suffered from severe sunburn the last time he went and we definitely needed a product like this on hand.
