Shark Rocket Vacuum-Product Review

Untitled-2
Recently while watching late night TV I stumbled upon a infomercial about the Shark Rocket Vacuum. Having a slight, well maybe more than a slight, cleaning obsession, I was compelled to watch sed programming which I was sure would lull me to sleep. And if I am totally honest who can’t reset a good show on rug care, right? Well the program won I watched it almost to the end or at least long enough for me to have to have one! If you want to know why I love my Shark Rocket Deluxe Pro Ultralight Upright Vacuum, check out my YouTube video. I have a few other surprise products I review during my “house cleaning”; don’t miss out what I got in my Ulta Beauty box. Here are some of the details on where you can find the Shark Rocket and the prices that I was able to locate online.*

Online distributor where I purchased mine: http://www.sharkclean.com Price $199 to $299 depending on upgrades
$199 comes with attachments and free Shark Steam Cleaner
$299 upgrade to the True Pet Ultra Deluxe (I believe that’s how they are calling it) has additional attachments one of them being the under the appliance attachment and the pet hair cleaner attachment.

Model HV300

Walmart… $159
CostCo…….$159

Model HV302

Amazon……$189
Bed Bath & Beyond… $189 (w/ 20% coupon $151)

*I found these prices and location by doing a Google search. I recommend that you do your own Google search to confirm my research and to make sure that the prices have not changed due to availability or time. In addition I have no affiliation with Shark or any of the companies that sell the Shark. I just like the product.

Happy Birthday Haul

birthday haul

There is nothing better than sharing a birthday with a girlfriend! I believe any good birthday should be celebrated all month long. Keeping with that tradition as closely as I can my partner in crime and fellow August Birthday Girl spent her Birthday at a cute little Tea House, of shorts, or maybe you would call it a “girly luncheon” spot, whatever you would label it, it was a totally perfect place for us to start off our Birthday celebration. We didn’t even let the deluge of afternoon rain dampen our spirits. Later that week it was my turn to pick the activity and that is when we hit the shops. We did a vareity of boutique and chain stores, nonsense and utility shopping to make the day not only festive but also very productive!

Haute Look Haul-Shopping Spree

scrn1
Check out all the stuff I got at Haute Look! I’ve been shopping at Haute Look even before they where purchased by Nordstrom. I have been happy with all the additional customer service that has been added since their purchase. One thing that I really love is that you can now return ordered merchandise at Nordstrom Rack and that makes my life so much easier. They have also increased their referral incentive, you now get $20 each time a friend shops. Which is nice little perk to use on your next purchase. One of the changes that I don’t like is that certain items can take up to 3 and sometimes even 4 weeks, to get to you. You have to be careful to check what the shipping time/availability is. This can be really annoying and the only reason that it is not completely discouraging is that the savings are usually so good that it is worth the wait. I do recommend you keep this in mind because it would make a difference if you were buying something for a particular purpose and arrival time would make a difference. Visit my YouTube video so you can see all my purchase for the last few shopping trips to Haute Look. Just join me at Haute Look Haul and check out everything that I got.

If you want to shop at Haute Look too just follow my link and take advantage of all their savings. You can also shop online at Nordstrom Rack from the same link. I haven’t shopped at the Rack Online but I’m sure it is also filled with great deals.

Fashion in My Life

scrn4

If you want to know more about my fashion experience check out my YouTube site. I have just finished a new video about why I’m making videos and where I have learned all I know about fashion and style. You can see the video, Embellish Life-All About Style and find out all you ever wanted to know about me and my fashion experience. A few jobs I didn’t mention in my video, totally forgot and I didn’t want it to go on forever… I didn’t mention working as a Manager and Buyer at a designer leather boutique in La Jolla, CA called Extravaganza and I was a stylist, fashion merchandiser at JigSaw a contemporary clothing boutique also in La Jolla, CA. I actually worked at JigSaw twice once just before I moved to Beverly Hills, CA and after I came home due to my car accident. Tip: Try never to burn bridges… You never know when you might need something from someone again. Even if it is not a job, I believe that life is spiral; hopefully in a upward movement, and always spinning and circling back around. Keep as many doors open and windows cracked, you never know when you might want to go back through to get to the other side. 🙂

What is Embellish Life

scrn3

Now that I have moved a lot of my post onto video at YouTube I thought it would be helpful to run through why I started Embellish Life what my goals and ambitions are for the blog, videos and Embellish Life in general… Although, Embellish Life started over 10 years ago my entire life has been dedicated to supporting and inspiring people (mainly women) to reach beyond their expectations and become the very best person they have dreamed of being… I love nurturing peoples goals and dreams and I also love to help people search and strive for realistic goals so everyone can feel the joy of accomplishment. It is my belief that when you strive for the obtainable your will find the extraordinary; keeping your mind and heart open to all possibilities leaves everyone exposed to experience life in it’s fullest. If you want to see more check out my video, What is Embellish Life?

Please join me on my new venture on YouTube while I dump my knowledge onto video in hopes to teach and inspire everyone to face their fears, strive for their dreams and accomplish the possible… Because Everything in Life is Better When You Embellish!

4th of July Party

4thjulyparty
This was a great party! We had about 20 guests. The party was partially catered by a local BBQ restaurant which allowed for everyone to enjoy the day and no one person spent the day cooking and prepping over a hot grill. I also had guest that asked if they could help (this happens all the time and people like to chip in if they can). I don’t normally request help but depending on the party and occasion, I do let people bring dishes. Since this was a 4th of July celebration I let people choose their favorite “All American” side, dessert to bring. Depending on your guest list and volunteers you may want to ask what they are bringing so that you don’t have too much of one side or platter. You know your guest best and what will work for your party. Having people help you will definitely take the stress off of you to prepare all the food yourself. If you are a foodie and enjoy the food prep than there is nothing wrong with thanking your guest for the offer and letting them know you have it all taken care of. Suggest just bringing a bottle of wine or soda… If they will not take “no” for an answer.

Later in the evening we all walked to the bridge to watch fireworks and we even had a few of our own (yes, they are legal here 😉 ) If you would like to see more of the set-up and decorations please check out my Embellish Life YouTube Channel and watch the video!

Watermelon MojitoHere is the recipe for the Watermelon Mojito:

It’s summer, try one, and I guarantee you’ll still be drinking them after Independence Day is over.

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups watermelon (cubes about 6 cubes)
5 mint leaves
1/2 oz lime juice
1.5-2 oz rum
1/2-3/4 oz simple syrup (I swap out the simple syrup and club soda for diet ginger ale)
Club soda

Instructions
Cut the watermelon into cubes and measure out 1 1/2 cups (to save time buy the pre-cut watermelon that you can find at most grocery stores in the produce section). Combine the watermelon, lime juice, mint leaves, and simple syrup (I leave this out) in a cocktail shaker. Thoroughly muddle the mixture until the watermelon is mostly liquid. (Here is where I change it up… I use a hand blender and if I am making a big batch for a party I put it into the blender. Once it is all smooth I put it through a strainer to collect most of the pulp. Now continue on) Add the rum and some ice cubes. Shake. Next, fill a glass most of the way up with crushed ice. Strain the watermelon mixture into the glass. Top with club soda (this is where I use the diet ginger ale)
