Mother’s Day Gift Idea: Alite Advanced LED Plant Grow Light

Alite Advanced LED Plant Grow Light FTD

Summer takes a very long time to arrive in the northern states. I love to garden, so one of my favorite ways to beat the endless-winter blues is to start seedlings inside and keep potted plants around to keep some green in our house year round. My indoor gardening selection is restricted by plants-that-are-not-poisonous-to-the-damn-cat (how I miss thee, tulips…) but even those give me a good selection to keep from going crazy. Our apartment doesn’t get a lot of morning light so I was very excited to get to try out the Alite Advanced LED Plant Grow Light to give my plants some extra TLC, just in time for my first Mother’s Day. If your mom/aunt/grandma loves to garden, keep reading to see if the Alite Advanced LED Plant Grow Light might be a winner for this year’s gift.

Kitchen Supreme Glass French Coffee & Tea Press Review

Kitchen Supreme French Press

I grew up drinking tea from a glass tea press, but ended up going for the convenience of tea bags during and post college. Now I want to get back to drinking nice quality tea using tea leaves in a tea press to minimize the waste of the bags and drink better tea. So I really wanted to try out a nice glass French Press to get away from plastics and have much more flavorful and enjoyable experience, especially for me since I don’t need caffeine to stay awake and I just drink tea for the taste and comfort. I was fortunate enough to get to try out the Kitchen Supreme Glass French Press and wanted to share my experience.
