Make Laundry Easier Than Ever with the IronEase Pro Ironing Board & Giveaway {CAN Only}

Follow on Bloglovin
Like any busy mom, laundry is my nemesis as it is a never-ending chore!
A few years ago, I shared this post where I talked about how I simplified our laundry system by doing laundry by person and NOT by colour.
However, although this method saves oodles of time, there is always the ironing pile to contend with. I think any mom would agree that anything that can help get laundry/ironing done in less time is worth investigating...which is why I was so happy to try out this amazing new IronEase Pro Ironing Board by de Machinor and now available in Canada though Amazon.
This board arrived at my home last week and I have been ironing with it ever since. {You might even say that I have gone a little ironing crazy.}  I think I actually see the bottom of the ironing pile now! I have been ironing my husband's dress shirts, shorts, blouses, curtains, and pillow cases {because I like them crisp}.
And this board is knocking it out of the park!

The Iron Ease has 8 amazing features that are designed to overcome the flaws of traditional ironing boards, therefore making ironing quicker and more enjoyable. 
This short video shows all of the amazing features that the IronEase Pro offers. And although I could write a whole bunch of words for you to read, the video really shows it best!
I have to admit that I really did not understand the value that this board had to offer until I watched the video for myself and then I was like, "Mama needs this ironing board!"
So please watch it and you will see too!

Although the IronEase Pro is more expensive than the average ironing board, it is built to last a lifetime and you are receiving a quality ironing board that is substantially more sturdy and made with a craftsmanship that includes a metal top {as opposed to plastic of the traditional board} so your ironing board will last for many years providing you with incredible value for your money!

Here are my favorite features of this board.
This is the Patented Shoulder Wing expansion system which allows you to iron shirts without having to arrange the garment around the board several times.
Here is my husband's shirt on the board with the ShoulderWing expansion.
See how I can get to those shoulders with the iron easily?
And here is the other feature I love...the adjustable basket for things that you like to keep at arm's reach...like a phone or remote controls. I always watch TV while I iron, so I love having the remote controls right where I can see them.
And this board is substantially wider than a traditional board so you can get more in one go...which is great for things like curtains and tablecloths.
And it also has an extra large heat resistant iron tray for steam generators.
{I currently don't have a steam generator, but I sure would like one!}
The IronEase Pro has really made the chore of ironing easier. With it's many features, ironing can be done more quickly so you can spend less time ironing. And that is worth something for busy moms who already have enough to do!
I am really super excited that the kind folks at De Machinor have provided one IronEase Pro to giveaway to one lucky Canadian reader! 
This giveaway runs from today until August 12, 2014 at midnight MST.

5 Tips for Cuticle Care with Trind & Trind Giveaway Can/US #TrindNailTips

Follow on Bloglovin
With the last few weeks being full of painting walls & furniture, sewing pillows {I can't wait to share these projects with you soon!} and camping, my nails and cuticles were looking really ragged and feeling a little sore.
 I really could not ignore the state of my hands any longer as they really needed some care. I was elated when my second box of Trind Nail Care products arrived. I took some quiet time to treat myself to a manicure to get my nails and cuticles looking healthy again.
And I am really happy to share with you that Trind will be appearing on The Shopping Channel on August 5th at 9:30, 12:30, 16:30, 19:30 Eastern Time and Trind's best-selling products will all be available....everything you need for healthy, beautiful nails!
Trind is Europe's most trusted and respected line of hand and nail care products. And I got to try these two new-to-me products...the Cuticle Kit Duo with cuticle remover and cuticle balsam. 
The cuticle remover is alkaline so it is gentle on your skin and helps to remove excess cuticle, and provides hydration. The cuticle balsam contains duo-liposomes which provide hydration for all 3 layers of skin.
The cuticle remover worked beautifully for me and in 10 minutes, my nails were looking and feeling so much better.  And then I applied the Cuticle Balsam to restore my skin's moisture,  and finished with Trind Hand Repair. 
My hands felt smooth, soft and wonderful!
Then I applied Trind basecoat which helped fill in some nail ridges that I have and then I had to make a decision and choose one of these fabulous blues from the Trind Caring Color "Knock It Out of the Park" set of blues.
I chose this fresh & funky blue for summer!

Here are 5 tips from Trind to help keep your cuticles looking beautiful & healthy:

1-Never cut your cuticles! Make it a habit after your shower to push them back and rub gently with a towel to remove any excess skin. OR see #2.
2- To push back the cuticles, first soak them in warm water for a few minutes, Pushing back your cuticles should never be painful.
3-If cuticles are hard, ridges will form in the nail. By maintaining healthy cuticles, your nails will thank you!
4-Wear rubber gloves when washing dishes or using household cleaners. If dish soap can remove baked on grease just imagine what it's doing to your hands and nails.
5-Dehydration  can lead to splits and cracks in your nails. Keeping your nails hydrated starts with keeping your body hydrated. Drink lots of water everyday!
And here is a video from Trind sharing tips on the Bare Manicure!
