We all know how much I love Best Buy, and today there’s an even better reason! Just visit their Earth Day Homepage for incredible deals on Energy Star and water efficient appliances!

While there is a large selection of Energy Star appliances at Best Buy, the LG Twin Wash and Sidekick Laundry Pair have really piqued my interest. Before we jump into why I love these, let’s take a look at why Energy Star appliances rock my socks.

Why Energy Star?

Best Buy Earth DayFor starters, a new ENERGY STAR certified washer uses 280 kWh of electricity. This can save you up to $40 a year on your utility bill, compared to a standard model. If you have a standard washer over 10 years old that alone costs you, on average, $180 a year.

ENERGY STAR washers also use less water – a standard machine uses 23 gallons as opposed to the 13 gallons of water per load used by an ENERGY STAR appliance. That is more than 3,000 gallons of water a year saved!

ENERGY STAR dryers use 20% less energy than their conventional counterparts and there is no sacrifice on features or performance. This is mainly because they offer sensor drying as opposed to timed drying.

Now… on to the LG Twin Wash & Sidekick.

Best Buy Earth Day

My favorite feature is being able to do two loads at once (I have been waiting forever for this technology!) This lets get other stuff done instead of washing clothes all day. The LG Twin Wash is made with efficiency in mind. It gets more clothes cleaner, faster with its 6.6 cu. ft. capacity. The TWIN wash offers an ergonomically elevated and angled door that makes loading and unloading a breeze. Another plus is the LED control panel, it is located right on the front door so there is no reaching or hunting to find it.

The TurboWash 2.0 feature can save you up to 30 minutes on larger loads with exceptional cleaning performance. The TurboSteam technology is designed to deeply penetrate fabrics to give you even cleaner clothes and linens.  Oh, and the detergent tray is made to prevent spills with the easy-to-fill recessed design.

The Sidekick  can be paired with nearly any LG front load unit. Use the main unit for smaller loads to prevent water waste. With the LG SideKick pedestal washer, you can get two loads of laundry done at once, regardless of size.

The Sidekick may also be used to discretely raise your primary front-loading washer to a comfortable height. As a bonus, the SideKick matches the pedestal under your LG dryer! It has a 1.0 cu. ft. capacity perfect for tackling small loads whenever you need. It also comes with a 10-year warranty and a magnetic remote control!

 KitchenAid Collection at Best Buy

What’s your favorite room in your home? The bedroom? Maybe the living room? For me it’s the kitchen. That’s where I do some of my best work and I guess you can say it’s where the magic happens. I love to cook and bake, whether I’m creating a new recipe or following a tried and true one. I get excited over refrigerator magnets and new dish towels. Heck, I even enjoy hand washing the dishes! There isn’t much I don’t love about being in the kitchen which is why I’m always hunting for ways to spruce it up a bit.

I daydream often about what my dream kitchen would look like and include. It changes often but a few things stay the same: an island big enough to seat four, cabinets for days, and appliances that meet my demands. What would your dream kitchen look like?

I do a lot of window shopping when it comes to major home purchases like appliances. With refrigerators and cooking surfaces always advancing it’s hard not to fall in love over and over again. My latest love interests come from KitchenAid and their new lines of ranges and refrigerators. I’m a huge KitchenAid fan with their stand mixers being my long-time BFF.

Nutri Ninja 2-in-1 Review

Hot summer day + Fresh fruit smoothie = an epic level of awesomeness.

Or how about iced coffee?

Lemonade muffins?!

Pineapple upside down cake!!!…

How about the fact that you can make all the above without a full sink. That’s a big win for me because I, like so many others before me, hate doing dishes. Better still there is one kitchen gadget that will let you make all the above and more. It’s the Nutri Ninja 2-in-1 and Ninja sent it over for a test drive.

Nutri Ninja

If you’ve taken a walk around Walmart you’ve no doubt seen a Ninja product or two on the shelves. I’ve been a Ninja fan for some time now and was excited to have a space-saving kitchen gadget on hand. When I moved back home I  donated the majority of my stuff – 98% of my kitchen stuff – since my grandmother’s house was already so limited on space.

The Nutri Ninja 2-in-1 is one kitchen gadget that does the work of many. That makes me warm and tingly inside and takes away the sting of parting with the kitchen gadgets I parted with. Inside the box you’ll find:

  • 1 Compact interchangeable power pod
  • 2 16 oz. Nutri Ninja® cups
  • 2 Sip & Seal® to-go lids for personalized drinks & meals
  • 1 40 oz. Processor Bowl
  • 1 blade with Patented Ninja® blade technology
  • 2 Dough Blade Attachments

Nutri Ninja Cake BatterThe cups with Sip & Seal® to-go lids are probably my favorite thing about the Nutri Ninja. They are great for single serve smoothies and margaritas. I am especially fond of the built-in blades on the lids; that way I have less chance of losing them.

I have also made cakes, cookies, and bread using the processor bowl. I’m pretty thrilled with the results and ease. Not to mention the lack of multiple gadgets I need to use.

Ninja 2-in-1

I’m extremely thrilled with the Nutri Ninja 2-in-1 and can happily recommend it for anyone looking for a little more room in the kitchen. It mixes, blends, and processes flawlessly. I wouldn’t exactly call the results silky, but I like some texture contrast.

I used the Nutri Ninja 2-in-1 to make this delicious pineapple upside down cake. I chopped the pineapple myself then whipped up the batter. It was so simple!

Seabreeze Off the Wall Outlet Mountable Bed/Bathroom Heater Review

Stepping out of the warm shower into a sub-arctic room can be shocking and sometimes even painful. That was my experience whenever I came out of my shower and into my bedroom. The temperature difference was almost painful! Okay, that may be slightly exaggerated but if you’ve been there you know what I mean. I’ve delayed getting out of the shower just so I didn’t have to go into a cold room. Then the Seabreeze Off the Wall Outlet Mountable Bed/Bathroom Heater (sent for editorial consideration) showed up.

Seabreeze Off the Wall Outlet Mountable Bed/Bathroom Heater Review

Having a clunky heater in my bedroom wasn’t something I wanted to do, but I needed something to keep the temperature tolerable back there. I keep the heat as low as possible during the night to save on heating costs so the rooms get a bit nippy. The Seabreeze Off the Wall Outlet Mountable Bed/Bathroom Heater has completely changed that. It keeps my room incredibly comfortable without causing the electric bill to sky rocket. In fact, using this will help to save up to 33 1/3-percent electricity!

The heater uses energy saving SMART ThermaFlo technology, which automatically adjusts heat output and air flow to maintain room comfort. It mounts right over the wall outlet (with the included hardware) so it sits securely. There is even built-in nightlight functionality which makes it great for a hallway heater as well. The unit is small but it is great at heating an average size room.

Seabreeze Off the Wall Outlet Mountable Bed/Bathroom Heater Review

I am thoroughly impressed with this heater. I simply turn it on 20 minutes before I go to bed and once I lay down I barely need my blanket. The heater is adjustable so you won’t be tossing and turning because you’re too hot/cold. That has helped me a lot in regards to the sleep and rest I have gotten. I’m waking up feeling more refreshed than ever!


Seabreeze Off the Wall Outlet Mountable Bed/Bathroom Heater ReviewIf you are looking for an affordable solution to heating a specific room or rooms then you’ll definitely want to check out the Seabreeze Off the Wall Outlet Mountable Bed/Bathroom Heater. I’m loving it for heating my bathroom and bedroom which are connected and the lack of noise the heater itself emits!
