BrylaneHome Sheet Sets – Affordable Luxury at Home
My mom has been talking for awhile now about wanting to get new sheets for her bedroom, so when BrylaneHome reached out for a review of their fabulous 500 Thread Count Wrinkle Resistant Sheet Set – I was really excited to share this one with my mom.
Here is her full review:
What is one of the elements that you look forward to when staying in a nice resort? For me, it is the feel and comfort of luxurious sheets. So, when Tracy told me I had the opportunity to do a review on BrylaneHome 500 Thread Count Wrinkle Resistant Sheet Set I was thrilled to experience a top quality sheet set for my home.
I was looking forward to bringing that hotel-luxury to my own bed. There is nothing better than climbing into your own bed with sheets that make you feel like you are staying in a first class hotel. There is something about pulling up your fresh sheets up to your chin that will take away all the troubles of your day…at least for me!
These sheets are soft and appealing, it is a 100% cotton sheet sets that is wrinkle-resistant and beautiful in any bedroom….the come in several color options as well. As you can see, we selected the ivory and love it! They give your space a vibrant look and feel just as great against your skin.
Here are a few more details on the sheet set:
4-pc. set available in 2 sizes: Queen and King
fits mattresses up to 18″ deep
I guess there wasn’t anything technically “wrong” with my old sheets – but the thread count was not that high and they were starting to lose their softness. I always cringed at the idea of getting new sheets, because sheets can be EXPENSIVE. At least that’s what I thought! I had no idea that I could upgrade my bedroom with 500 Thread-Count sheet set for just $69.99!
How many of you have wanted to jump into bed in the middle of the day just because you know it is your oasis for relaxation?! Well, take my advice and upgrade your sheets to this beautiful set from BrylaneHome.
Where do you get the BrylaneHome 500 Thread Count Wrinkle Resistant Sheet Set? Right online at BrylaneHome! As I mentioned, they are even on sale for $69.99

Guilt Free Snacking With Skinny Pop Popcorn #theskinnypop
Are you looking for a better way to snack? I know I always am. Snacking is actually my downfall usually – I am not always the best about eating a full breakfast or lunch, so when the late afternoon comes I am STARVING. In the past I would grab a handful (or handfuls) of whatever was open in the pantry. It could have been Cheez-its, Doritos, or maybe I grabbed a bag of carrots…there was no rhyme or reason to it really.
But then I discovered Skinny Pop Popcorn. It is an amazingly delicious popcorn that I can snack on AND stay on track with. As you can see from the picture above, you can usually find a measuring cup in my truck filled with Skinny Pop Popcorn. One cup of the original flavor is just 39 calories….talk about a FABULOUS afternoon snack!
I actually contacted Skinny Pop Popcorn to share my love for their snacks and how they were helping me stay on track and they sent me their White Cheddar Popcorn to review. WHITE CHEDDAR. Now, I know what you are thinking….add in some flavor and that calorie count goes way up. NOPE. One cup of the White Cheddar Skinny Pop Popcorn is just 43 calories! Just 4 calories more than the original! Isn’t that amazing?!
I actually brought a few bags with me camping this summer as well. I love camping, but we are always on the go! Either visiting the sites, the local stores, or headed out on the boat…and I kept a ziplock bag of Skinny Pop Popcorn in my bag almost every day. It is WAY too easy to grab an ice cream cone with the kids, or eat that extra slice of pizza, but I was able to curb my hunger with a snack I truly enjoy. And since I truly enjoy it – I don’t feel like I am “missing out” on eating something else. I am happy and satisfied with my snack and ME
I know I have told you guys that I started another blog, Our Healthy Life Journey, it is all about being a happier, healthier version of ME. I actually started it with my mom and my friend and we are enjoying being on our journey together. In fact, one of the first posts that my mom did was about Skinny Pop Popcorn and how the smaller bags are great for her and helping her maintain portion control.
I truly believe that taking care of me, makes me a happier version of ME. I also believe that eating right and being healthy isn’t a diet – it’s a lifestyle. And I am loving having Skinny Pop Popcorn as part of my lifestyle. Snacking guilt free.
Make sure to look for the Original and White Cheddar flavors at your favorite store. I can say from personal experience that I love them both :) You can head HERE to find a store that carries that Skinny Pop Popcorn. Actually, it looks like there are two other flavors that I need to check out as well – Black Pepper and Naturally Sweet!

I found an amazing GROUPON FOR BLUE MAN GROUP! Oh how I love this show!
Have you witnessed the magic of the Blue Man Group? My family and I went a few months ago absolutely LOVED it! My kids are 9 and 6 and they were entertained the whole time
Experience the mystery, the humor, the euphoria and the indescribable celebration of art, technology and music that is Blue Man Group at Universal Orlando® Resort. Lose yourself in the incredible performances, the astounding music and the captivating stage show. Combining science and laughter, Blue Man Group makes for an explosive evening of entertainment that has wowed more than 25 million people worldwide.
$54 for one ticket to see Blue Man Group (up to $88.50 value)
When: select dates, July 30–August 31
Where: Blue Man Group Theatre at Universal CityWalk
Seating: Tier 1. Seating assignments booked prior to performance date and not available to customers until tickets are issued at venue on day of event.
Door time: 30 minutes prior to showtime.

How is it possible that 3 Blue Men can keep a totally filled audience completely engaged for 2 hours? Well, you will just have to see the show But I will tell you that there is paint, art, food, and a lot of audience participation. We laughed and smiled for 2 hours straight.
The only part of the show that you can take pictures is during the “Booty Shaking” and that was definitely a FUN part. My son was laughing non-stop at all the different names they came up for your bum. And me and Sadie…well, we were Booty Shaking! I told you guys that we love to dance
Be sure to stay through the end of the show, the Blue Man Group and the musicians stay outside and available for pictures!
Even if you have seen the show before, I highly recommend it. My husband and I both saw it about 10 years ago and it was a whole new experience…especially when you witness it through your children’s eyes.
After the show – head over to City Walk and enjoy some of the Orlando Night Life!
