Harvey Prince Hello Review & Giveaway #Hello #WhiffLove #Giveaways @HarveyPrince

I received Product to Facilitate a Review, All opinions, and Photos are my own.

I have been vying to try out Harvey Prince Hello.  Every time I spray myself it puts me into a better mood. Something about the perfumes scent makes me think of Sunshine, Happiness, and A Hopeful Tomorrow.

It may also be that it reminds me of a Perfume Called "Happy" by Clinque but Harvey Prince's Hello is SO MUCH BETTER smelling to me.  Maybe because Harvey Prince is made in the USA, and is an Eco-Friendly, Natural Company.  The oils, and notes *in my opinion* are higher quality ingredients.  I am a huge Perfume-Smelly-Addict,  I have to smell good or I just feel Oogly about myself.  Scent triggers our senses, and that sense should be used for the good, and enlightened daily. I truly believe if you are a Happy fan, you'd more than likely love Hello more. I, myself, am a huge fan of Sweet, Citrus-y, Perfumes.

Harvey Prince's Hello has notes of Meyer Lemon, White Grapefruit, Satsuma Mandarin, Summer Forsythia, Pink Plumeria, Wild Verbena, Tahitian Vanilla, and Sensual Musk.

This was my first time reviewing the Body Cream.  I was impressed with the thick consistency of the lotion, the long lasting lingering of the scent well after being massaged into my skin.  My skin does feel softer from it.

The Body Cream, along with the Perfume has made me happier this past month using it.  Between turning 32 earlier this month, and guess.. what! We are moving again! This time to the other side of the River to Williamsburg to be closer to work.  I will not spaz out.. from the stress.. I will sniff my skin to calm me.. I can't be the only one likes to self cope from using their favorite smells.

August IS Audio Fest at Best Buy @BestBuy #AudioFest #MusicLover #Ad

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.

HEOS by Denon is a Wireless Multi-Room Sound System.  Recently I received the HEOS5 through Best Buy to Review. I thought the set up was easy, and I am using the HEOS5 in a Larger Bedroom.  The sound is great, and I have moved the speaker outside to listen to music while the kids play while streaming from my Droid.  Downloading the App was a simple task by going to Google's Play store.

I like the fact how convenient it is to move around, and how I can stream from my devices to it.  I also like the fact that it comes with all the cords needed to connect to a network too if you need to hard wire instead of Wireless. Both options to me are always a great buying point.

The design I thought was unique, and sleek. I can't get over how great the sound quality is. Do I want a Denon HEOS Speaker for each room now? You bet your Tech Savvy britches I do! Want to know more about Denon HEOS Specs, click here.

How I love my Wacom INTUOS Tablet, let me count thee ways.

GreenVics; Self Portrait I did on Day 2.

1. It's pretty bad@#"!
2. The detail I can draw while zoomed in 200%+ is unbelievable. 
3. Affordable!
4. The Pressure Point on the Creative Pen, and while adjusting Tool Thickness/Shade is fun to play with!
5. Even if you are like me, and drawing is just a hobby.. this tablet is Easy to use!

I received the most awesome Birthday present ever this month.  It's something I've been wanting forever.  I received a lot of great things, I felt very spoiled, from my Wacom Intuos Tablet, Starbucks Giftcards, and an abundance of my favorite Green Teas.  The way to my heart is through Art, Coffee, and Tea. I am also doing another Harvey Prince post for Hello soon too! So, yay, Hope you read my posts!

So this is my newest precious.  The moment I set it up (as simple as plugging in a usb, and popping in a disc.) I was doodling.  I find myself drawing things here, and there in the Autodesk Sketchbook Express Program just because.. I want to see if I can remember how to draw things I did over 20 years ago.

This is Leo, from TMNT that I drew from memory for my little brother.  I don't know why, but it calms me to be able to shut my eyes, and remember lines, and certain strokes to create an image. 

Little Weirdo Eye Sketch using the Pen Tablet.  

Here is one of the very first things I drew with the Tablet.  I had been watching Puppet Master all Week (Dollar General had whole box set series of Full Moon DVDs on sale for $4.95, so I dorked out to some old School Horror.)

When the Kids saw what I was doing, the requests started pouring in for Pirate Skulls, and Horses.

I really hope this helps my blog become more personal, and fun for myself to do.

I forgot how much I loved to draw.  The last thing I drew, and put any effort in were DIY Dr. Seuss Themed Letters for my son's bedroom wall.. that was a while ago. I'm going to practice, and become a paint, smudge, pencil, blur, penciling machine. I'm hooked, and already want to learn more.

My love of a certain plant.

I just wanted to do a quick update on how great my cherry tomato plants are doing! They remind me that moving from the Midwest back to Virginia was worth the headache.  I've already ate 3 off the plant, ahaha. Growing up I would walk around eating tomatoes like apples.  Then I discovered cherry ones, and they are my absolute favorites.  Don't get me wrong I love a juicy big boy too.

Are you growing anything? This year all I planted was diff tomatoes, and peppers.  My dream is to have a bigger garden.  I want my whole front/side yard to be an edible garden while the backyard will be for the kiddos.

Tomatoes are extremely easy to grow, they shoot up like weeds.  They just need sunlight, and plenty of water.
