Steam Machine Multi Purpose Power Steamer Giveaway

Mizz Review Lady, J's Reviews & Giveaways, SoCal City Kids, and Making Memories With Your Kids, along with many other awesome bloggers, have all teamed up to bring you this awesome giveaway! 

I never knew how much my life could benefit from a Steam Machine until I met the Steam Machine Multi Purpose Power Steamer. As a stay at home mother I can tell you first hand that my carpets are like a canvas, as is my walls. But that's not a problem if you have a Steam Machine! My floors; Unfortunately, are no different! Once again the Steam Machine comes into play!
There's definitely a good reason why they call it a Multi Purpose Steamer and that's because it has so many different functions. From room-to-room the Steam Machine comes in handy! If you need to remove wallpaper, simply use the Steam Machine to quickly remove it and best yet - it's chemical free! The kids drag in a little dirt on your carpet? No problem, use the attachment to not only clean, but also sanitize your floors. And that's not the only thing it sanitizes either! Use it to sanitize your kitchen area including your stove top and oven. And don't forget about your grills and bathrooms!

One of my favorite things to use the Steam Machine for is my dirty kitchen tiles. It sanitizes my floors while cleaning them at the same time.  The steam blasts them clean and then I use the cleaning pad to wipe the surface clean.  It really goes far and beyond a typical mop job!  

How does it work?
The Steam Machine works by a pressurized high temperature to efficiently steam away grime and dirt, grease, and even bacteria.  

The Steam Machine includes:

  • Owners Instruction Manual
  • Two Nylon Brushes
  • Jet Nozzle
  • Brass Brush
  • Squeegee
  • Floor Steam Mop With Microfiber Cleaning Pad
  • Wallpaper Steam Plate
  • Measuring Cup With Fill Funnel
Use the Steam Machine with ease by grabbing the handle and then using the two wheels to roll it around with you wherever you may need it. Take advantage of the 8 foot hose to reach hard to reach places both high and low.  Rest assure that your purchase is totally covered with a two year guarantee.

About The Book:
Being a 16-year-old safecracker and active-duty daughter of international spies has its moments, good and bad. Pros: Seeing the world one crime-solving adventure at a time. Having parents with super cool jobs. Cons: Never staying in one place long enough to have friends or a boyfriend. But for Maggie Silver, the biggest perk of all has been avoiding high school and the accompanying cliques, bad lunches, and frustratingly simple locker combinations. Then Maggie and her parents are sent to New York for her first solo assignment, and all of that changes. She'll need to attend a private school, avoid the temptation to hack the school's security system, and befriend one aggravatingly cute Jesse Oliver to gain the essential information she needs to crack the case....all while trying not to blow her cover.

My Thoughts:
This is a great book! Quite the thriller! It is reminiscent of Nancy Drew, but obviously much more modern. I finished this book quite fast, it was an easy going read. And I loved it. I've never read the author's other books, but if they are good as this one was, I plan to!

Starring Darin Brooks (“CSI Miami,” “Castle,”), Natalie Hall (“Pretty Little Liars,” “Law and Order: SVU”), Frances Fisher (Titanic), Griffin Cleveland (“The Walking Dead,” “Desperate Housewives”), Ryan Doom (“Raising Hope”), and George Wendt (“Cheers”), the debut of The Seven Year Hitch ranked as the Hallmark Movie Channel’s most-watched original premiere of 2012 among women and adults ages 25-54. Best friends Jennifer (Hall) and Kevin (Brooks) have lived together for seven years, but Jennifer’s impending marriage is about to disrupt their domestic bliss.

Untangling The Knot Blog Tour

Untangling The Knot by Deanna Wilsted

About The Book:
“I did what?” Twenty-eight year old Gabriella Bessu is St. Therese’s meticulous wedding ceremony coordinator. So the fact that she has mistakenly signed her newest couple up for an annulment, rather than a wedding, sends her Catholic guilt into overdrive. But who can blame her? The groom is gorgeous and his two kids tug at Gabriella’s heart in a way that overcomes all her best intentions. Before long she’s in over her head, fixing her mixed-up plans and helping the children and dad come to terms with their haunting grief for the mother and wife they lost years earlier. Can Gabriella untangle her own fears and accept the messy life that God has handed them?

My Thoughts:
This is a great quick fun read! You fall in love with the absent-minded main character, Gabriella. She is like any other gal you might know. It is a cute love story as well. A bit predictable, but the kind of outcome you wish for!

The Bronze And The Brimstone

The Bronze And The Brimstone by Lory S. Kaufman

About The Book:
What could go wrong in the 14th-century for three time-traveling teens? How about - everything! Hansum, Shamira and Lincoln, three teens from the 24th century, are trapped in 14th-century Verona, Italy. They've survived many deadly experiences by keeping their wits about them and by introducing futuristic technology into the past. Principal among these inventions is the telescope, which brought them to the attention of the rich and powerful. But standing out can get you into unexpected and dangerous situations. The nobles of Verona now believe Hansum is a savant, a genius inventor, especially after he brings them plans for advanced cannons and black powder. Being the center of attention is great, but the potential for trouble is now exponentially greater because people are watching Hansum's every move. Meanwhile, artistic genius Shamira has fallen for a Florentine artist with bloody and disastrous consequences. Lincoln, considered an incompetent back home in the 24th-century, has blossomed - at least until he's shot in the head with an arrow. And Hansum, after secretly marrying his new master's beautiful daughter, Guilietta, is offered the hand in marriage of lady Beatrice, daughter of the ruler of Verona. To refuse could mean calamity for all the teens. Amazingly, none of this is their biggest challenge. Because a rash illness is spreading across Verona - and it is threatening to consume everyone. Do they have a future in this past?

My Thoughts:
This is a great second book to the first (though I don't think you need to have to read the first to enjoy the second). I love the story of Lincoln, though it is significantly downplayed by our hero, Hansum. I do also love the tragic love triangle between Hansum and Guilietta and Beatrice. A great story. Loving the history! Can't wait for book three!
