Ever crave Chinese food but don´t feel like going out to eat? Available in the freezer section of your local grocery store, Wanchai Ferry frozen entrées come complete with everything you need to make a restaurant quality meal in the comfort of your own home.
Thanks to MyBlogSpark my family was able to try the newest Wanchai Ferry flavor, Beef & Broccoli. When it comes to freezer foods I am very picky about food texture, sometimes it's tough or incredibly mushy. I was happy with the beef and the broccoli and water chestnuts had a slight crunch. I did make rice, in addition to what was provided, due to the fact that my family loves rice!
On a hot night this was the perfect dinner to prepare, all I needed was a microwave and a family willing to wait 14 minutes. If you would like to try this Wanchai Ferry offering, or any of it's other products, please visit their site for a $ off coupon!

Trina is a luxury lifestyle brand that has existed since the 1940s. Led by Cheryl Vance, a design veteran with 15+ years of experience in both the apparel and home furnishings worlds, the brand has recently re-emerged in the last six years to become the industry leader in bringing couture design and inspiration to cosmetic bags and travel organizers.
I have purchased travel organizers from my favorite shopping haunts (Target = happiness) and I've been pleased with the fun designs and the basic functionality. However, it seems those bags are more suitable for my daughters regarding styles offered. Trina combines couture details, fashion silhouettes, colors and fabrics, with ultimate functionality. I feel I could use the Bamboo Island Mini Square Organizer as an evening bag! You can't say that about many travel cases.
First thing I had to check was the zipper quality. A bag can have the most gorgeous design but if the zipper doesn't work, forget it. With my Trina bag I found the substantial gold zipper accenting the black and white design, not only looked chic but was also smooth. The inside was wonderfully crafted with fine stitching and no sharp edges. I've had my share of scratched hands from poorly crafted liners.
Trina bags are available at Nordstrom locations and fine boutiques nationwide. To locate a retailer please visit http://www.trinastyle.com/.

"I wonder if they like the same water pressure?", is not a thought when looking for a mate - but it should be!
My husband prefers a powerful spray, something I liken to a body power-washer, while I appreciate having the option of a delightful spray or water massage. We were given the opportunity to try the latest showerhead offering from Waterpik - The Easy Select Showerhead and it met all our water pressure needs. Ah... happiness.
I had my husband install the showerhead, it's not usually a job I want to do, but I watched him and I could have done the The Easy Select installation myself, it was very easy.
You have the choice of 5 spray settings; Full-Body, Circular Massage, Powerspray, Mist and Water Saver. You change the spray settings on the handle - this option is terrific! No more water spraying all over while you cover the shower head with your hand, trying to turn the little nobby-thing to a different water pressure. You just twist the handle and enjoy. Lovely.
If you are looking to update your showerhead consider the Waterpik Easy Select Showerhead.
