Buskins Leggings Review


Buskins Leggings is a brand new company making their debut December 1st, 2014. Buskins leggings are SOFT, Durable and great quality. Made from Polyester and Spandex, you will never go anywhere else for leggings again. Buskins Leggings carries, Regular, Fleece and Fur lined Leggings and sizes include toddler to women. Buskins has a small collection of Plus Size Women’s patterns and are looking forward to expanding that line as well.


These leggings will be your friends and families new best friend! We have a 14 day money back guarantee and a 30 day exchange for all customers.
We do our best to ship orders within 2 business days. Packages are shipped via USPS priority mail if located inside the US. If located outside the US they will ship first class international. For faster international shipping customers can also select USPS priority shipping.


I had the pleasure of receiving a pair. The pair I received are the “50 Shades” leggings. They’re made of spandex but don’t have a spandex feel. They feel like cotton and are very soft. They are a little pricier than if you were to buy a pair of leggings from a clothing store. They have a huge variety and you get what you pay for which are quality leggins. If you’d like to order some contact Amelia Plunkett in Facebook or visit her website at http://www.myfunleggings.com

Super Bowl XLIX Inspired Look: New England Patriots

The New England Patriots have made it to Super Bowl XLIX and there is already controversy. An investigation has shown 11 out of the 12 footballs used in the game against the Indianapolis Colts were under inflated. Under inflated footballs are easier for quarterbacks to grip especially in cold weather. People will be keeping a close eye on the Patriots for Super Bowl XLIX February 1, 2015.

Norwex Review



“Norwex started in 1994 with a cloth, a little water, and bugs on a windshield. From humble beginnings in Norway, focused on “cleaning without chemicals” to the most recent launch of Norwex in Australia, Norwex remains dedicated to their mission of improving quality of life by radically reducing chemicals in our homes.” I had the pleasure of using a few samples from  Norwex. They are the travel size Enviro Cloth, 2014 Dishwashing Liquid, and Ultra Power Plus Laundry Detergent.

Ultra Power Plus Detergent

The detergent was enough for one medium size load and definitely lived up to the expectations of making clothes brighter. Our clothes also came out softer and cleaner as well.

Enviro Cloth Holder

One thing I like about the Enviro cloth is its versatility. You can use it dry to dust or use it wet as a cleaning cloth. Using a wet Enviro cloth leaves no streaks when cleaning windows and glass. You don’t need Windex or any type of cleaner. Just water and some elbow grease.

Dishwashing Liquid

Dishwashing Liquid

The dish liquid didn’t get very sudsy but still cleaned the dishes fairly well.

Scoats: Coats for your Stethoscope

Breast Cancer ScoatScoats or stethoscope coats if you will are a fashion accessory to the scrubs that serves two purposes. Not only are they fashionable but they protect your investment by keeping the oils from your neck away from the scope, as well as to keep the tubing from cracking. It also protects it from sunlight if kept in the car as so many people do. It keeps it from drying out. They can also be used as an ice breaker to younger patients. They are machine washable. Different fabrics are used but mostly cotton blends. They are custom made so there are multiple colors and designs to choose from. If you don’t see what you’re looking for just ask and they’ll do their best to provide it for you.
