Apparel N Bags - Wholesale Apparel Supplier

(Disclaimer: I received this product from Apparel N Bags. All opinions shared are my own.)
"Great brands, reliable company."
After some much needed spring cleaning I discovered that I really would like to stock up on some nice pairs of lounge pants. Apparel N Bags has a great selection of just that as well as a huge inventory with a variety of clothing for the whole family. From infants to juniors, men's to women's, accessories to backpacks, even beach towels (A must have for this time of year. Make your trip more enjoyable with a stylish towel!) Buy wholesale and in bulk with many styles and great quality. This is a site to check out!
One of the things I love about this site is their large selection of athletic apparel to choose from. Featuring popular brands like Champion, Adidas, Dickies, Port & Company, and many more. There is a perfect pick for every degree of weather you work-out in.  Perfect because the weather can be rather spontaneous.  I also consider athletic wear to be more casual wear these days so you can never have enough!
After a long morning of work I would like to come home, grab something to eat and relax. I really enjoy these Boxercraft Ladies Practice Pants. Super fashionable with Zebra print featured on the top. I'm 5'8" and the length is perfect. Low price of $19-$22 depending on your size. Now I must admit, I've never done yoga before (and I don't remember even buying a mat) but now I'm inspired!  Now I need to check out some videos on it :)

Hidden Valley Original Ranch Dressing

(Disclaimer: I received these products to review from Crowdtap. All opinions shared are my own.)
Finding simple and delicious recipes are my kind of dinner motivation! Crowdtap has given me a great opportunity to try Hidden Valley Original Ranch Dressing for multiple food recipes and dips. Upon receiving the full sized bottle of Hidden Valley Ranch, on the back there contains an 'Original Ranch Cheddar Chicken' recipe. It is as follows:
                                        1 cup    Seasoned Bread crumbs
                                     1/4 cup    Shredded Sharp Cheddar cheese
                                     1/4 cup    Grated Parmesan cheese
                                              4    Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
                                     1/2 cup    Hidden Valley Original Ranch Dressing

Preheat oven to 350 F. Mix bread crumbs, Cheddar and Parmesan cheese. Coat the chicken with the dressing. Dredge in the bread crumb mixture. Place chicken on baking sheet and bake for 35 minutes. Makes 4 servings.
Coming from a sort of beginner at cooking trying this recipe for myself was super easy! The chicken turned out tender and moist. It was just delicious! This will definitely be made more often!
Another way I use the Ranch dressing is on tacos. Every Tuesday at my house is Taco Tuesday so this certainly comes in handy. Just pour the dressing over the meat and cheese, roll the wrap up and finished! This added seasoning tastes great, no other seasoning needed. I now never eat my tacos without it!
If you're on the go and looking for a healthy snack to take with you try using Ranch Dressing in smaller cups. Some nights before I go out I will prepare carrots and take these with me the next morning. The portion the cups come in is just enough for a daily serving of which ever veggies you desire to eat. It makes a great snack for lunch at work, school, or even a picnic!
Also there is a Hidden Valley Ranch Dip mix. Simply pour the mixture into a 16oz. container or bowl with sour cream and presto! You have great tasting dip! Great for parties or date movie nights! Also, you can as always, use as a dressing on salads.  
There are many ways to use Hidden Valley Original Ranch Dressing. I certainly need to discover more tasty recipes. What is your favorite way to use Hidden Valley Ranch dressing?

The Refined Feline's Kitty Ball Bed

Up until the past few weeks my cats have been using a big blue butterfly chair to sleep in. It was a bit spacious as it took up quite a bit of room in my living room. After three years of use it reached its peek of wear from my much needed restful cats. As you may know, cats sleep many hours during the day by nature so I wanted something smaller and better quality to last much longer. This espresso kitty ball bed looks so chic and stylish! I was super excited to buy this one.
At first glance taking it out of the box, I noticed it seemed smaller than I'd expected comparing to the picture. Assembling the bed was fast and easy enough. It only comes in two pieces. Also, its very well made. The wicker material is smooth and nothing sticks out. The cushion was far too small for my adult cats so I had to put a blanket inside instead. My luck, my cats showed no interest at first. I had to bribe them with plenty of catnip. After 2 weeks and me worrying to no end, they started sleeping in the bed. Yes! Oddly enough my biggest cat loves this the best. Even with his body sticking out he still loves it!
My only negative is the size. This cat bed is great for smaller felines. I still love this purchase though!
Where is your cat's favorite place to sleep?

Vinyl Wall Decor Stickers

It has almost been a full year since my husband & I became a new home owner. Most of the bigger furniture had been bought and my rooms are looking less empty. Now time to brighten up my walls! I began by browsing through eBay and Amazon looking for something within a budget. Not really knowing what to look for but just the idea that I wanted some personality, something cool. Then I found it! I'm totally in LOVE with these wall decors!

There is so much to choose from! There are murals, quotes, even chalk board stickers for the kids bedrooms! Neat-o!
I bought the first one pictured as surprise for my husband. Even though I work early in the mornings I still find a way to say I love you when he wakes up. $11.90 + S&H
The Laundry Room Loads of Fun is super cute! Add a little pop of fun! Made well and perfect size. Easy to apply. $6.98
Getting started: First clean the section you want to work with. Its best to choose a flat/dry surface. Then peel back the back paper. Rub it down with a cloth or with a card (credit card, etc.). It took me several tries and I had to re-position some of the letters if they were uneven and they still stuck to the wall. I'd recommend to not reapply more than a couple times. Depending on the seller the directions can be little different depending on how they are made. One time I received a quote that I had to apply word to word! After all is said and done I love how they came out!

Black Cat Design I have three cats so this one was perrrfect! For some reason I thought it would be taller (guess I should have checked the measurements!) but I ended up really liking it this way! This one was a bit tougher to apply. The pieces were sticking together and it didn't line up in some parts. But as a whole you can't really tell. Love it! $4.28
The last two I won in an eBay auction at a good price. The "It's the moments together, that change us forever" quote was the toughest. I had to apply word for word so lining it up took up a bit of time. I probably wouldn't buy another one like that because my arm was sore by the time I was done. It came out looking nice though! BIN $1.86
The Tree Branch Mural for me was inspired by one of my favorite shows 'Once Upon a Time' from Regina's office. I just LOVE the branches and the black and white look. My shower curtains also match the mural and it looks awesome! This one came in 10 pieces but it was super easy and fast to apply even though its so big! BIN $5.99
Sooo much to choose from out there. The prices on Amazon sometimes go up and down and you can bid at a staring price of $0.99 on eBay. Now I need some for my kitchen. I'm addicted :)

Dial Deep Cleaning Liquid Hand Soap

"...bringing luxury to your hand washing experience."
Dial has launched a new deep cleaning liquid hand soap. The bottle comes in an 8oz bottle, perfect for the bathrooms and I also keep one in the kitchen.
There are three trendy scents to enjoy:
Coconut Lime Verbena, Water Blossoms, & Yellow Raspberry & Black Sugar
I won an awesome coupon from another blog to try one of their varieties and the first one I tried was the Dial Coconut Lime Verbena. I LOVE the scent! I live in Florida so I love the citrus/tropical feel I get with this one. The scent consists of a wonderful blend of coconut, verbena, and lime. Appling the soap is basic and easy enough. You can see and feel the micro-scrubbers for a deep cleaning result.  My hands get rather dry at my job so coming home to add some refreshing moisturizer is greatly valued. It also fights germs so its great to have for when my little nieces and nephews come over.
I've also tried the Dial Yellow Raspberry & Black Sugar liquid hand soap. The scent just smells heavenly. Another one that I use throughout the day after cleaning the house. This one looks beautifully in my bathroom. Totally loving these hand soaps!
My next one to try is the Water Blossoms!
Which one are you excited to try?
