I have several people to get gifts for in the upcoming months. Many of my friends are as much into art as I am. A few of them will be getting copic art markers. These are great because they are inexpensive and are high quality markers. They come in many unique colors and they last for a very long time. They can be used for a variety of things, some of my favorite include ceramics and models. They have replaceable nibs and refillable ink available, so you never have to buy new markers. They are guaranteed to last for three years without drying out. You can also get an airbrush connector which makes it easy to convert these makers into airbrushes.

He leads such a busy lifestyle. He has so many hobbies which include spending time time in the garage working on various projects, playing sports, and riding motorcycle. He needs a ring that can stand up to his busy lifestyle. This is why I'm getting him a cobalt ring.
This is a metal choice that is becoming incredibly popular. It's a newer jewelry material but is proving itself to be nothing less than phenomenal. Cobalt is a very bright, white material. It's comparable to the look of platinum and only costs a fraction of platinum. These rings are scratch-resistant and won't tarnish, chip or break. This was a huge deal for me in a ring because it can hold up to his busy lifestyle. Cobalt rings look and feel amazing.

When I write on this blog, I usually post great gift giving ideas for the males in your life. That's what "him" implies, right? Gifts for your husband, boyfriend, friend, brother, father, grandfather, uncle, coach, and more. Today, I'm giving some recognition to dogs. We have a dog and his name is Bosco. He's a part of our family and there is no doubt about that! He is so spoiled. As I'm currently writing this, he is curled up on the couch, snuggling in with my blanket.
We want to get a new dog bed for Bosco soon. This would be a great way to provide him with a place to sleep and cuddle in while lessening the amount of time he spends on our couch where other people want to sit.
I found a great dog bed that will meet his needs. A snoozer luxury dog sofa is perfect for Bosco. It has a foam interior that offers great orthopedic support. The cover has a zipper so it's easy to remove and is machine washable. It's available in small, large and extra large sizes and there is a huge variety of fabric colors available to match your home decor. Show your dog how much he's appreciated and loved and get him a dog bed for his comfort!

He said this made a huge difference in his work! He comes to work seeing how fresh and organized his office looks. He spends more time coming up with new blueprints than he does organizing (which is how he said it felt before he had the office transformation). He told me that a lot of other people at the company looked at the fantastic changes made to his office and want to do the same! He gave them the website that my mom and I used to pick out his office storage and organization solutions.
If you are looking for a way to transform your office, look no further! There are so many solutions available out there that will make your work ethic and office space improve dramatically.

Last year for Alex's birthday, I got him a grill. He loved it! We use it all the time and it's one of our favorite things to do during the summer evenings. It's a great way to spend more time outside, and we usually enjoy grilling with friends and family. We usually enjoy our creations outside, eating at our patio table.
This year, I think I'm going to get him a couple of different grilling cookbooks. This is a great gift idea because he can use it with something he already has. I already know he loves to use his grill, so this will be something that I know will be used! These great cookbooks offer so many tasty recipes to try on the grill. It's filled from cover to cover with mouth-watering, savory meals that can be made on the grill.
This summer, we'll be grilling out more than ever! I can't wait to try out a bunch of recipes from these cookbooks.

My guy and I just got back from a long-weekend (much-needed might I add) trip to Chicago, IL. If you've never been there, I highly suggest it. And if you have been there, I suggest going back! It was a great little get-away trip that didn't involve a whole lot of money or planning. Those kinds of trips are sometimes needed and are a great way to get away for a bit.
If you would've seen my bags, however, you would think I was taking a month-long trip to Spain (or possibly moving there). I had so many bags with me for all kinds of situations with whether and events that we might have ran into! While we were packing before we left, however, I asked him what he wanted to put all of his clothes in. By this, I was meaning a small suitcase or duffel bag. He told me he has a backpack. A BACKPACK!? This would never be enough room to put his toiletries and a weekend's worth of clothes. Especially since he wanted to bring an extra pair of shoes. So his stuff got put in my suitcase.
I decided right then and there that the next gift he would be receiving from me would be a weekender travel bag. He can get use out of it and it is the perfect size for trips much like the one we just took. Maybe when he opens it, we will decide to go on another short trip!

I went to a wedding last night and had a blast! It was a ton of fun. A lot of my family was there and so were a lot of our friends. It was a great night. I'm glad I was able to celebrate such an amazing night with the people I know and love. The couple is so happy and so in love.
I got a chance to visit with them for awhile at the reception and noticed how beautiful their wedding bands are. They were so bright and white that I couldn't stop staring! I asked what kind of rings they were because I've never seen something so beautiful in a piece of jewelry before. They said they chose cobalt for wedding bands because of how bright they are at a fraction of the cost of platinum. They said with the huge cost of a wedding it's great to be able to save money when possible. Cobalt is also extremely durable. It's resistant to scratching which makes a perfect fit for their busy lifestyle.

No offense to the men out there, but shopping for men's wedding bands can be a pain in the, well, you know. Being a woman, I feel as though I'm never educated enough on the product in the store. This is why I've turned to online research. You can find so much information online, it makes sense to conduct some of my own, personal research.
As most of you know, there are so many different materials out there available for purchase in men's wedding bands. There are choices available including: tungsten, titanium, black diamond, palladium, and black titanium. These are all great choices, but not every material choice fits everybody's lifestyle the same.
If you're looking for a pure, white metal that's rare, inexpensive, and hypoallergenic, go with a palladium wedding band. If you want a ring that's more modern-looking, durable, darker grey in color, lightweight, affordable, and hypoallergenic then a titanium wedding band is best for you. Tungsten is the hardest jewelry material in the world, heavy, light grey, and scratch-proof.
These are a few qualities of some of the materials available in men's wedding bands. There are so many out there. Hopefully, this post can help you find the ring that best fits your lifestyle!

Spring is here! I'm ready to get out and do all of the fun things it comes with. We love to be active and do all sorts of fun things (grilling, walks, and more!). One of the things we really want to get into this Spring and Summer is golfing. It's a great, enjoyable sport that's fun to play.
I found a great gift for a guy who loves to golf. This golf club organizer goes in a shed, garage, basement, or mudroom and organizes golf equipment and saves space. This is a great product. You can have easy access to all the equipment. It holds two pairs of shoes, two golf club bags, towels, golf balls, gloves, and tees. It's everything you need to go golfing!
This can be a gift given for Father's Day, birthdays, anniversaries, and more.

There is no denying it that there are so many different kinds of wedding bands out there for men. I'm not just talking about styles, but materials as well. It can be overwhelming to make a decision, and with all of the decisions that need to be made in planning a wedding, I'm trying to take some of the stress away by letting you know what I've learned about tungsten wedding bands.
Tungsten wedding bands have become an extremely popular choice for men. Why? It's a newer metal choice that looks modern. It looks different than the traditional white gold or gold wedding band. This is a high quality metal that never needs to be polished because it always has a high shine look to it. Tungsten rings are steel-grey in color and are durable--they never scratch! A tungsten ring will always look new.
If you're on a budget, a tungsten ring will help you stay in the budget. They run around $200. Most wedding bands are around $750 or more. It's great to save money and have a high quality product at the same time.

It can be hard planning a great activity to do at a Bachelor party when there's people there of all different ages. I'm helping to plan a wedding and there's groomsmen in the wedding ranging from 12 to 40.
In some weddings, the groomsmen are all around the same age. In that case they can go out to the bars and party hard. When there's a younger groomsmen, you want everybody to have fun and feel included.
A great way to celebrate a Bachelor party with a range of ages is a golf outing. It's a fun way to spend the day outside playing a fun game.
I also found a great gift to give a future groom at a Bachelor party at a golf outing. This is a Golf Club Kooler Klub. This is a fun way to carry beverages on the golf course. It's a cooler with a spout that holds 48 oz. of your favorite beverage! It can fit right in your golf bag!

They have many rings and wedding bands to choose from and are made of tungsten, cobalt, titanium, palladium and more. There are great properties and pluses to each jewelry material. Each one is different to match your wants.

I went to somebody's house this weekend to grill out and have a bonfire. It was a fun group of people to hang out with and we had a lot of fun.
At one point during the evening, we wanted to turn music on via the television. I was asked to turn on the TV since the remotes were sitting next to me. Sounds easy, right? Not so much. The couple who owns the house has about 6 different remotes, each controlling one thing. It was so confusing that I had to give up!
I suggested the idea to Tracy that she should get John a universal remote as a gift. She was thrilled with the idea. She said she often gets confused with all the remotes that have to be used to perform simple tasks with the television. This product will make your life easier as well as reducing clutter in your home by reducing the amount of remote controls.

Wedding planning can be stressful and hard! There are so many things that need to be planned and so many decisions to be made. The date, venue, attire, decorations, food, drinks, entertainment and so much more need to be chosen.

Palladium rings are the is pure, white, and hypoallergenic. Titanium is naturally grey-ish colored, durable, lightweight, and hypoallergenic. Tungsten is the hardest material on the jewelry market. It is light grey in color, durable, heavy, and scratch-proof.
