I like my drinks COLD!

The cold winter we were having just a few months ago is but a distant memory now.  The heat of summer has been turned up along with the humidity which means we are drinking a lot more cold drinks.

I don’t know about you, but I like my drinks really cold when it hot and humid outside, so when the wonderful people at NewAir heard this, they introduced me to their NewAir AB-1200 126 Can Beverage Cooler. When I saw their product I could not wait to try it out.

If you read this post you can see I set up a bar cart recently so I thought having the beverage cooler next to the bar cart would be the perfect match.

5 metal racks come with the cooler, although I set mine up with only 3 because I wanted to store my large bottles at the bottom in the bin area.

Details:

  • 5 metal removable racks and a spacious storage bin that hold up to 126 cans of your favorite beverage.
  • Interior LED light with an ON/OFF switch.
  • 7 thermostat settings that keeps your drinks as cold as you like them.
  • The stainless steel and glass door flatters any decor.
  • Perfect size for a man cave, recreation room, garage, office or dorm room.

Do yourself and your refrigerator a favor and get yourself a NewAir AB-1200 126 Can Beverage Cooler.  You will be glad you did!

Thank you NewAir for providing me with a AB-1200 Beverage Cooler for review.

My Obsession With My Bar Cart

When I was growing up, our family home had a formal living room that was only used on holidays and when my parents entertained.  Located in one corner of the room was a bar cart that was fully stocked.  I always loved that bar cart.  The crystal decanters and the fine cut crystal glasses glistened in the light of the room and the rainbow of colors they made danced off the avocado green curtains.

As a child, I always thought the adults looked so elegant drinking their alcoholic beverages, men with a high ball glasses and ladies with their martini glasses.  There were no bottles of beer anywhere in sight.

My Obsession With My Bar Cart

When decorating my home, I wanted to add that same elegant memory of my childhood home.  For several years I have been looking for the bar cart that catches my eye and I finally found it.  I fell in love with it for many reasons, the first, is it comes with two removable trays that can be used with or without the cart, I really enjoy that feature.  The trays are covered in leather and have french inspired embroidered wine labels, they each also have two metal handles.  The cart is on casters which is perfect to be able to wheel the cart to which ever room Handsome and I are entertaining in.

 Bar Cart, beverage holderI did have a custom piece of glass cut for each tray, I thought it would keep the embroidery and the leather nice for a long time.

“I have a bilevel oval brass bar cart that was my grandmother’s, which I adore.  There’s nothing quite like being able to roll an entire mini bar up to where you’re sitting – especially if it’s in bed.” – Mary McDonald, designer

How to Clean Your Make-up Brushes

How to clean & condition your make up brushes:

Do you know how to clean your make-up brushes?  This is a technique I learned years ago from a make-up artist.

It’s really important to clean your make-up brushes once a week.  There is bacteria that can grow on your make-up brushes.  If you don’t clean your brushes you are re-applying that bacteria to your face, and that is icky!

Handy Dandy Rust-Oleum Comfort Grip

On a recent trip to our local home improvement store {I just love that place, I could stay there for hours}, I found the coolest item!

 A Rust-Oleum Comfort Grip.

Rust-oleum Sprayer http://www.itsallaboutthepretty.com/

I just finished changing the color of my curtain rods from silver to black, and thank goodness I found this item prior to starting the project.  It made the spaying so much faster.  I was able to get an even coat of paint, no drips

If you do a lot of spray painting, or for that matter just a little.  The Rust-Oleum comfort grip is an item you need.  It converts any spray paint can in to a spray gun.  It will save your fingers from hurting.  It is a cinch to put on the spray can and it gives you a more controlled smoother spray.  It has a 2 finger trigger. Using 2 fingers is superior for a more consistent spray.

Check your home improvement store for this “I can’t live without” item!

Disclaimer:  I am not sponsored by nor affiliated with Rust-Oleum.  It has made my fingers so happy that I wanted you to know about this finger saving product.

My favorite kitchen appliance ~ A Delta Faucet

Delta Faucet, its All About the Pretty

About 2 years ago, Handsome and I, decided to give our kitchen an update.  We changed the backsplash, updated the granite, and added a new stovetop.  Since we were putting new granite in, we thought that we might as well change the sink and faucet.  We were giving all our ideas a trial run.  We knew we wanted to do a major kitchen remodel in about 5 years.  So, we decided to do this mini update to make sure we really liked our choices before the BIG remodel.  Two years later, we are happy with most of our choices and ecstatic with a few.
