In The Market For A Stylish Hot Tub?

Looking for a hot tub with style? Something more attractive than a box of water? You’re in luck –  Hot Spring has created the new Highlife Collection NXT line delivering unparalleled beauty, functionality and wellness potential in one sleek package.

Designed by BMW Group DesignworksUSA, the striking NXT spa appears to float above the ground.

Curious how often you just might use your hot tub to sooth sore muscles, reconnect with family and friends, or simply relax? Hot Spring recently conducted a survey of owners. They use their spas much more frequently that non-owners would guess, including nearly 10% of survey takers you go for a soak every day.

Become Inspired With Farrow & Ball

Do you know what a fresh coat of paint can do to your old walls? It can bring them back to life! That's what Gerry (hubby) did with the laundry room and the hall way. We wanted something fresh for the walls so we did a Before and After painting project . From dark green, the walls are now painted Savage Ground #213 to match the lighter brown shades of the rest of the house. Gerry mudded, sanded, primed and applied two coats of paint to the walls. The primer and paint both offered very good coverage on the walls especially with the change from dark to light. We did find the paint to be a bit strong in smell but not lingering. Overall, though, we are happy with the results most especially the coloring. Now, Gerry is happy he can finally rest his shoulders from all the painting he did.

By the way, in case you are wondering, the Savage Ground #213 came from a quality company named Farrow & Ball. The paint and wallpaper experts are committed to giving their customers unparalleled paints and wallpapers for their homes. If you want something unique and special to paint your walls, you come to Farrow & Ball and they have the paint you have in mind. Choose from the 132 highly pigmented paints they offer. Your sure to love the finished product.

Adding a Splash of Color with Renova

A splash of color in the house can add some much needed fun in an otherwise dull and boring interior. It's what Renova has in mind when they were creating colorful paper products such as colored toilet paper, paper towels, pocket and facial tissues, and paper napkins. When you see the paper products from Renova, you will know right away that they thought about aesthetic and function at the same time. Their toilet paper and paper towels and napkins can work with whatever theme or decor you have at home.

Having guests anytime soon? Get Renova products and blow them away with out of the ordinary paper products in your bathroom and kitchen. It's both aesthetically appealing to the eyes as well as practical. Don't be afraid to add color to your home. It won't take away from its elegance and style. It will only add to its uniqueness and will highlight your personal style. As Renova says, show your true colors!

I definitely thought Renova was a nice change from the normally white products we always use!

Have her play it cool and casual with the Hannah Karly long and lean knee-high boots in waterproof leather or suede uppers, this Holiday Season. Boots are all the rage and so stylish. Hush Puppies are world renowned for comfort, and bringing you the most advanced technologies available in footwear today. I had the opportunity to slip into these boots and they are so comfy. My favorite things? They look awesome, are comfy, they are waterproofed and ready to wear, and have 3M Thinsulate insulation- so I know my always cold feet are going to stay warm. Wore them out over icy paths and roads and was not worried about slipping because they also seemed to be very well gripped against snow and ice.
I would highly recommend them as a wonderful gift or to treat yourself this Holiday Season.

With proceeds directed towards the fights against HIV/AIDS, Elizabeth Taylor White Diamonds Lustre gives us all a reason to achieve that luminous glow that comes from both giving and dressing ourselves in this highly adorned and opulent scent. Elizabeth Taylor White Diamonds Lustre explores a fresh side of the iconic Elizabeth Taylor White Diamonds, with sheer effervescent florals that highlight the heart of the fragrance. The courage and fearlessness that icon Elizabeth Taylor embodied is brought to life through this radiant and beautiful scent, while playing a gracious role in benefiting the Elizabeth Taylor Aids Foundation.
