Exploring "backyard" treasures on our mini spring break

It's funny how we grow up in a certain part of a state yet sometimes we still don't really know much about it. Take for instance ...

Making Dreams a Reality with Vera Bradly & Girl Starter


I've always been a big supporter of shows that support us ladies. I know everyone wants to believe it's a fair world out there and we have the same opportunities that men have, but lets be honest it doesn't always work that way. So when I heard about he new series Girl Starter I was pretty excited about checking it out. The first episode aired on 5-19 and I have to say it was everything I anticipated and more! Now I can't wait to see the next episodes to see how it all turns out.

Vera Bradley partners with the NEW TLC reality competition series Girl Starter, described as a blend of reality hits such as “Shark Tank,” “The Apprentice,” “Project Runway” and “American Idol,” produced by Al Roker’s production company (AL Roker Entertainment), the show is aimed at empowering young female entrepreneurs ages 18-24 and those interested in supporting their dreams.

The competition follows six steps of early phase business building, from ideation through pitch and features entertaining challenges, vibrant guest stars and a grand price of $100,000 in funding and services. The Girl Starter x Vera Bradley episodes will air (Fridays at 7pm EST on TLC) and features Vera Bradley Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer, Barbara Bradley Baekgaard as a guest judge.


If you caught the first episode and would like to shop for the winning bags you can do it online now! But you better hurry they are anticipated to sell out fast!

WISP away the dirt hands free!


If you're like many of us out there sweeping is probably not one of your favorite tasks. I know for me using a broom is was always my last resort. That was up until I was introduced to The WISP One-Handed Broom. I thought for sure it was going to be another one of those as seen on TV products that was too good to be true. You know the kind that end up in the donation box a few days after it arrives because you're fed up trying to use it the way it shows on the commercials. However The WISP actually turned out to be a "for real" thing! It really does clean up messes quickly and easily with just the swipe of the broom. The photo on the left is of my floor before using The WISP on it. The photo on the right is what it looked like after I took the broom over the entire area. I honestly only did one stroke over each of the tile squares starting from the freezer and going back to where I was standing. And I did this all while holding the dustpan with my foot..yes my foot. I didn't even have to bend down to hold the dustpan to scoop up the dirt.


Just to show you though yes you can use your hand with the dustpan if you prefer. This is nice too if you sweep everything in one pile and then want to scoop it up. But honestly either way works just as well as the other.

Features:
• Patented Electrostatic Bristles
• Designed For One-Handed Use
• Ergonomic Step-On Dustpan
• Adjustable Telescoping Handle


There are actually three different WISP products in the line that you can choose from depending on what size clean-ups you usually face at home. I'm super happy with my WISPsystem and miniWISP that I received and have found myself using them quite often. The miniWISP is great for small messes when you don't need a full sized broom.
