As you know, my house has 2 kittens that are bundles of energy- constantly trying to run, scamper, playing with each other (sometimes having needed to be pulled apart because they play too rough), playing with us humans, and playing with Mommy cat. They are at that stage where they also want to play with other things like catalogs, books, and sometimes the TV remote.

Our friends at Purrfect Play sent our kitties some toys to play with. The kittens got the Dust Bunnies (which are wool wrapped into pompoms). Even Mommy cat got a couple of Wool Balls and a Brown Organic Fleece Mouse (crafted from naturally brown organic cotton fleece) for those “needing a break” times. All of Purrfect Play’s items are organic and dye-free to keep your pet healthy without all the icky chemicals that can sometimes be found in our pet toys. They not only offer toys for kitties, they also have doggie toys and gifts for people!

tbkit1So what was the verdict of the Dust Bunnies? The kittens weren’t too sure at first but when they realized they were tbkit2toys, they loved them. They even sat up with it in their mouths. Mommy cat loved the Brown Organic Fleece Mouse (maybe because it had catnip in it) and it gave her tons of energy that she was able to play with her kittens. She also loved the Wool Balls, pawing them to where they would roll off the bed. I hadn’t seen her had that much fun in a long time! I snapped pictures of kittens Brother and Sister playing but didn’t get a chance because once Mommy cat knows she’s getting her picture taken, she stops playing.

The time has come for parents and college students to start buying school supplies. Backpacks are filled with binders, spiral notebooks, planners, file folders, pens, and pencils. If you’re tired of the same old stationary places like Wal-Mart has to offer, then I have the coolest products for you! Since 1945, Carolina Pad has been offering designer stations that is unique and for everyday use!

Carolina Pad‘s products are not only the hottest trends when it comes to stationary, their quality is unmatched. Their pages don’t bleed and their folders are sturdy. Their products¬† have shown up in TV shows like CW’s new “90210” and ABC Family’s “Greek”. If you can trust TV, trust me when I say that their products are amazing! They are bright, cheery, and so colorful. Why use a solid purple binder when you can make everyone ask where you got it with the Whimsical Flower Binder? I promise you, nobody else will have it. If you don’t want to hodge podge your school supplies, they also have collections to suit your personality. They even have a Kendall Kollection, where every sale benefits The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

It’s almost that time- almost time to go back to school! Parents are buying their children school supplies and furniture for their college students who have decided to live off campus. Everyone remembers the basic necessities for furniture: couches, beds, chairs, desks, and televisions. But let’s not forget another basic necessity for computer desks- that all important office chair!¬† CSNChairs.com has an amazing array of office chairs for just about almost any price. They have the executive chair, reception area chair, classroom, and even folding chairs. So if you’re looking for a specific office chair for a specific purpose, you can bet that CSNChairs.com is the place to go!

But as a college student, you read a lot. And where are you going to put all those books you accumulate during your years at college? That’s right, a bookcase! CSN Office Furniture has you covered! They have all sorts of office furniture for your basic office furniture needs! If you need a basic computer desk with nothing too fancy, they have hundreds of basic computer desks for under $450, which is practically a steal! You can’t find that anywhere else. I have a computer desk and a computer chair. But I have tons of books and nowhere to put them! That’s where the Mylex Five Shelf Bookcase comes in handy. It’s really sturdy, easy to assemble, and it’s considered a “space saver” because it only has a 9″ depth, which is excellent for books, DVDs, VHS (for those of us who still use our VCR) and even CDs.

Thanks to our friends at CSN Office Furniture, we are giving one (1) Texas Banter reader the chance to win the MyLex Five Shelf Bookcase in Black! So what do you have to do to win this amazing back-to-school necessity?

Go to CSN Office Furniture, come back and tell me what item you would LOVE to have!

CIJ: Dali Decals Review & Giveaway- ENDED July 2, 2009

NOTE: IF YOU ARE HAVING TROUBLE GETTING THE DALI DECALS WEBSITE TO LOAD, FEEL FREE TO BOOKMARK THIS PAGE AND COME BACK AT A LATER TIME.

Thanks to our friends at Dali Decals, you have the chance to win!

dalidecalsWe couldn’t start Christmas in July without having something fun to do! So when I was able to review Dali Decals products, I was happy! I needed something to spruce up the dreaded white bedroom walls. I chose “Dare to be remarkable” simply because it fits how me and Manders are. The day it arrived, I really had nothing planned so I decided to immediately put it up. It was REALLY easy to take it off the backing. But because I didn’t get a squeegee, it was kind of difficult to put it on the wall. The letters kept sticking to what looked like masking tape. So I stood there, carefully peeling away the tape so that I wouldn’t rip a letter or only have 1/2 of the quote transferred. What looks so weird but yet cool is that the quote looks like someone wrote it with a Sharpie! Since Mom never let us write on walls, this worked out perfectly!

So why are Wall Stickers cool for Christmas? Because they do have Holiday decals for your walls/windows/mirrors this Holiday season and they make GREAT stocking stuffers! Granted they won’t fit in most stockings and wrapping might be a tad bit impossible, but you get the idea. Dali Decals is giving one (1) of my readers a $25 gift certificate to Dali Decals! How can you get in on the Christmas in July action?

Go to Dali Decals, come back and tell me what you would get with your $25 gift certificate!
