Coming Soon: CSN Stores Review

Are you ready for what I am about to tell you?  I was contacted again by CSN Stores to do another review on my blog.  So I graciously accepted the offer. Since I already did a giveaway the last time, I decided to do a review this time around. I have been so impressed with CSN Stores with all their products and over 200+ online stores, it is kind of hard to choose just one item. They sell everything you can imagine such as indoor and outdoor furniture, home decor, housewares, baby and kids items, pet products, office supplies and so much more. Everything is available at one place in the comfort of your home, just go online and start shopping.
I personally love to browse home decor items, it is just captivating and it really makes your house look absolutely stunning. As I was browsing, my eyes froze when I came across the lovely vanity section.   Can you believe what you can do to give your bathrooms and bedrooms that new look. Oh, it will definitely be a hard decision, since they have 200 + online stores to look at.
I love browsing CSN Stores  and my favorite area would definitely be the baby and kids section. What can you say. I am a mommy that can't stop shopping for her little one. Now, don't forget to keep a look out for my review in the next few weeks. Head over over to CSN stores and let me know what you think I should review or what you like to browse for.

Lollipop Party Ball Tutorial!

Since I am talking about birthdays, why not include my lovely Lollipop Party Ball Tutorial as well. I wanted to add a little decorative piece on the birthday table, but I was looking for something unique yet catchy to the little ones. So I decided to make my own party table decoration. Lets begin.
Scrapbook sheets (any decorative sheets you like)
Round plastic cookie cutter
Styrofoam ball (Any size you like)
Styrofoam block 
Dowel Stick (or any other item that will hold the ball)
Tulle or Ribbon
Gather all your supplies together and reach for the scrapbook sheet.  Place it on the table and use your round cookie cutter to trace over it. Now, you will have made several circles. Depending on how big your Styrofoam ball is you have to trace a lot of round circlers to cover the entire ball. Cut as many circles out as you need.  
Once you have all the circles nicely cut out, start making holes in the center of each circles.  Place each lollipop through the hole of each circle. When they are all done, start poking all the lollipops in the styrofoam ball. Make sure every inch of the ball is beautifully covered. Sophia had so much fun with it that she did not want to stop. Now that the ball is fully covered with lollipops get your dowel stick and poke it at the bottom of the styrofoam ball.  Set aside.
Place the styrofoam ball in the pail along with tissue paper to keep it secure. Reach for your Styrofoam ball and poke the dowel stick through it then place inside the pail. Start to decorate the dowel stick with tulle or ribbon. Place some more lollipops in the pail to give it an extra little touch. Guess what, now you have created a beautiful Lollipop Party Ball for any special party or event you can think off. My little one sure loved it and it was a hit at her party. Now, run along and make yourself one!

Sodastream Review

I personally love drinking soda. I must admit, I am quite addicted to drinking soda. So when I was given the opportunity to review the Sodastream Home Soda maker, I immediately jumped at the request.
The Sodastream Home Soda Maker allows you to make all kinds of tasty sparkling soda flavors in just a few seconds in your own home. How fantastic is that. You have the choice of 30 Sodamix flavors to choose from and believe me you will enjoy it too.   

Now, I received the Sodastream Fountain Jet Starter Kit in a beautiful silver and black color. After opening the package, I was indeed impressed. I was really excited to start on my first bottle of soda, so immediately I started to read the instructions carefully.  The instructions were easy and simple to understand, so I was ready to start.  Everything was available in the starter kit to make your soda, except for water LOL. I added water in the carbonating bottles and placed them in the refrigerator to get cool. After the bottles were all nice and cold, I screwed one bottle onto the Fountain Jet Maker to add the fizz. I pressed several times on the button to add the carbonation. You get to decide how much carbonation you want in the your soda by pressing the button. I love the buzzing sounds when you add more carbonation. Since, we had enough carbonation in the water, we unscrewed it from the Fountain Jet Maker and added the Lemonade Flavor. I really loved it a lot and it was quite tasty. I was ready to start on another flavor. So we tried the Energy Drink. It was great and it tasted just like Red Bull! This was so cool! It was like having your own soda fountain in your home. We also made some fizzy water and added it to some orange juice it was delicious and Sophia loved it.
Here is a little bit more about the Sodastream Fountain Jet Maker:  "Comes in a range of bi-colored machines specially created to the colored pallet of any modern kitchen. Among the Jet features are: automatic access gas release mechanism, fits extra large carbonators - optional 100 liter aluminum cylinder, minimal space usage, customized carbonation level and easy to clean drip tray"

Want to know more about the Sodamix flavors: "30 sodamix syrups including dozens of regular, diet and caffeine-free options. Flavors include classics like cola, lemon-lime, and root beer...Exotic fruit flavors like orange mango and diet pink grapefruit...Energy drink, sparkling iced teas and cocktail mixers. Each bottle of sodamix makes about 12 liters of soda (about 33 cans!) for around 25 cents per 12-ounce can".  For re-ordering supplies or for other Sodastream Home Soda Makers head over to their online store and have a look at all their products.
Aren't you eager to know more about the Sodastream Fountain Jet Maker then visit their site at Sodastream.   Get yourself one and enjoy the fun, taste and enjoyment of making your soda in your own kitchen.  It will be an experience you will never forget.  Enjoy!
