How to Say I Love You Around the World

How to Say I Love You Around the World

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner so for this week’s infographic I thought it would be fun for us to learn to say “I Love You” in different languages from around the world. Impress your Valentine this February 14 by saying I Love You in all sort of different languages. Another idea that this infographic might help you with would be taking one (or more) of the languages and maybe making a meal with foods from that culture. This is great for adults, but also if you are celebrating Valentine’s Day with the kids. Are you ready for Valentine’s … Continue Reading →

Beer Gift Baskets for the Guys

Beer Gift Baskets for the Guys

Recently GourmetGiftBaskets.com asked if I would be interested in trying out their products. One of the items in the email they sent me was a gift basket for the guys with beer. Okay, not just for the guys, but most of you know this would be more tailored for the men in our lives. Disclosure: GourmetGiftBaskets.com sent me some items for free to sample but opinions are my own and Hubby’s. Hubby was very excited to get a gift basket bucket with beer in it! I get all sorts of goodies here at the house to review but this one … Continue Reading →

Put Your Heart To Paper with Hallmark this Valentine’s Day

I love Valentine’s Day – not for the overly extravagant gifts – but for the outpouring of love that people will show for each other. For me, I have always used Hallmark as a way to express my feelings to those I love. They have such a huge variety of cards and gifts that it just makes it easier for me. DISCLOSURE: I am being compensated by #Hallmark for this #PutYourHeartToPaper post, but it is one of those brands I have been a fan/user of for as long as I can remember. Sometimes it is as easy as buying a … Continue Reading →
LoveSpoon Candles – Perfect for Valentine’s Day

LoveSpoon Candles – Perfect for Valentine’s Day

Recently LoveSpoon Candle sent me a candle to try out and I was impressed. This was the first soy candle I actually have ever tried. Their candles are 100% soy which means they burn cleaner and without the chemicals released in traditional paraffin wax candles. Normally I am not a big fan of candles that smell like foods, but the one they sent me was Chardonnay and I love it! This is in the Serenity Sensations section of The Monogram Series. The scent is very fresh but not overpowering. LoveSpoon has two different lines, one in decorative tins and the … Continue Reading →

How to Tell Your Valentine "I Love You" in ASL and How Not to Say It

It is just a week until Valentine’s Day and I found this great infographic that shows us not only the proper way to say “I Love You” using American Sign Language (ASL) but also shows you how not to say it. While Hubby may appreciate the “rock on” sign generally, I still would rather say “I Love You” on Valentine’s Day. ASL is one of those things I am planning on taking a class on, one of these days. I am always amazed by it. My nephew, Colby, actually learns some ASL at his preschool, and some Spanish too. I … Continue Reading →
