One thing that I have always wanted in our living room was a fireplace, not just because I love the way they look, but I wanted to easily add warmth to the room. I also wanted a spot to hang our Christmas stockings! So imagine my delight when TVLiftCabinet.com reached out and wanted us to feature their amazing fireplace/TV cabinet combo!
Where is the TV? It is in the cabinet waiting to lift out! Amazing, right? And it gets better. Not only can you lift and lower the TV, you can do it with a remote. You can also use a setting that will lower the television again when it has been turned off. It feels a bit like we are The Jetsons!
Sorry for the lack of artwork above the fireplace, but we are still looking for the perfect picture to compliment our cabinet! Now for the cabinet with the TV lifted up. The cabinet holds a wide range of sizes, this television is 48″.
I was also surprised to find two storage areas on the sides of the cabinet that are perfect for holding Blu-rays and games. There are hidden places for cable boxes and other electronics as well. Everything about the TV lift cabinet has been very well thought out.
And yes, that is an electric fireplace that you see in the front! And not only does it give the look and feeling of a fireplace, it is also a heater. I can’t wait to put it to use this winter!
Disclosure: TVLiftCabinet.com provided us with the cabinet in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
I recently read A Tale of Light and Shadow, which is the first book in a series, which means I am now waiting impatiently for the second book to come out!
Story description: Enter Atolas, a world where swords and daggers both extend life and end it; where magic is feared by all but a few; where feuds and friendships influence kingdoms and courtships. Henry and Isabelle have secretly sworn to marry despite his lowly station. Though Henry is but a carpenter, his devotion drives him to commit an unthinkable act that may cost both of them their lives. Unknown to either, a dark prophecy has set in motion events which will affect not only them, but the thrones of rulers throughout all of Atolas by eclipsing the world in shadow. But all is not lost while hope remains in the guise of an unlikely hero and the strength of friendship.
Sounds pretty interesting, right? It was! I really enjoyed the book. It’s a fun read, with humor in it as well as adventure and a bit of romance. In fact, I read it all over the course of a weekend, I just wanted to find out where the story was heading! The characters are easy to relate to, each of them has something about their personalities that make you either like or hate them.
There is also a bit of mystery around one particular character. Could she be more than she seems? I guess I have to wait until the next book to find out! That’s my only complaint about this book, that I read it before the rest of the series was out! Waiting to find out more is going to be hard!

Sometimes you come across something so full of fun that you just have to smile. This is how I feel about My Sister’s Tee. Created by two sisters, and made for the sisterhood that belongs to all women, these shirts are meant to inspire.
I was lucky enough to get the Be The Good dolman tee to try out. Here is how I wore it:
Simple and easy for summer; Be The Good dolman style tee, a favorite pair of jean shorts, a fun and funky purse, and of course, some pink Converse shoes! For makeup I kept it simple with two Younique pigments on my eyes (Flirty and Curious), and of course, my favorite 3D fiber lashes (my eyes look naked without them now)!
What I love about this tee; the design is fun and uplifting. It’s very comfy, it could easily become one of my favorites. It’s soft, high quality tri-blend that didn’t shrink when I washed it. I also liked the color, which is a light grey. I also liked how the dolman tee wasn’t overly fitted. If you have a bit of a belly like me you might like this fit a lot too.
There are many other fun designs on the site, something to fit everyone’s style and taste. One lucky reader will even have a chance to pick out their favorite tee! That’s right, it’s giveaway time! To enter just use the form below, USA only.

Our front door has been overdue for a spruce up for quiet some time now. But let’s face it, painting a front door isn’t the easiest thing, the weather needs to be right if you are going to remove it, and doing it with a brush takes time.
Luckily, we got a FLEXiO 890 Sprayer for review. I’m so excited! This is going to make our front door spruce up so much easier, and faster! Not to mention all the other walls in the house I can think of painting with it!
Back to the door. Right now it is a metallic brown, and it’s a bit beat up. The door frame also really needs to be painted, it’s missing paint in a lot of spots.
The main hangup we are having now is what color to paint the door! Should we stick with brown, it looks nice with our brick. Maybe a darker brown, or a lighter brown? What about a red? Or even a gray? It needs to be something that will help hide the dings and dents in the door (they came with the house)!
What is your favorite front door color? We are open to your suggestions!
