When Is Amazon’s Black Friday? (2019)

When is Amazon Black Friday?

I love to talk about Amazon on this site (I LOVE their Amazon Handmade department). So, I thought I would write an article about Black Friday on Amazon because this is when you can get some of the best deals of the year.

Black Friday falls on November 29th, 2019. So, Amazon’s Black Friday deals are rumored to start mid-November to early December 2019.

This rumor comes from last year’s Black Friday deals that lasted about two weeks on Amazon, from mid-November to early December.

* I’ll be updating this post as soon as I get more information. I promise I’ll be checking up on this like a maniac.

Society6 Rug Review (2019)

Society6 Rug Review
Click the image to see more information and pictures of the featured rug, “VHS Detail I” by Hollis Brown Thornton, on Society6.

Did you find a rug from Society6.com that you just can’t live without? (Like I can’t live without this funny rug from Society6?… Seriously, this rug couldn’t describe my coffee addiction any better. lol)

Are you thinking of buying a rug but you don’t know if Society6 rugs are any good?

If you answered ‘yes’ to both questions, then this post is for you!

I’ll admit that, at first, I wasn’t a fan of rugs from Society6 and back in 2017 I actually wrote a Society6 review where I didn’t recommend them for most people.

And now, in 2019? Well… I still don’t think they’re for every room but Society6 has improved their rugs to the point where I’ve bought 4 and I can truly say that I love them!

So that’s why I really wanted to write a specific Society6 rug review to look at the things I like and don’t like about them. And, hopefully, this short article will help you to decide if these rugs are for you.

Redbubble Sweatshirt & Hoodie Review (2019)

Redbubble Sweatshirt Review - Redbubble Hoodie Review

Do you love cool, wearable art? Do you hate being chilly? Do you like to be funny but honest at the same time (like I do with this hoodie from Redbubble that just speaks the truth but makes people laugh)?

If you said yes to all 3 questions, then this article is for you!

Since Redbubble’s sweatshirts and hoodies are becoming increasingly popular, I thought I would write a post summarizing what 207 customers had to say about them. From how they fit, to the quality of the materials, everything you need to know about every type of Redbubble sweatshirt and hoodie is right here!

Quick Tip: At the moment of writing this, there are 71,457 sweatshirts and hoodies on Redbubble. That’s craziness! To help you find the perfect one for you, check out the sweatshirts and hoodies that are TRENDING RIGHT NOW on Redbubble!

In all honesty Redbubble has the softest hoodies ever. I’ve ordered many other times and the hoodies are soft from the inside and always arrive without damage. Love it!

Redbubble Phone Case Review (2019)

Redbubble Phone Case Review

For many of us, our phones are such a big part of our lives. So why not express yourself with a new, UNIQUE phone case from Redbubble? (This Redbubble phone case expresses EXACTLY who I am 99% of the time. EPIC!!! lol)

But, of course, most of us want to protect our phones while being stylish. There’s nothing worse than dropping your phone and cracking the screen!!!

Been there, done that (twice)!

So that’s why I wrote this Redbubble phone case review, which covers both the iPhone cases and Samsung Galaxy cases. After reading 334 customer reviews, I summarized what they thought about the 3 styles of cases (snap, tough, and soft) in terms of both style and protection.

Quick Tip: Even though a phone can still break while in a case, it’s less likely than if it didn’t have any protection at all. Adding a tempered glass screen protector (Amazon) can really help reduce the risk of breaking your phone even more!

Redbubble Duvet Cover Review (2019)

Redbubble Duvet

Duvets are a great way to decorate your bedroom and express your personality. That’s why I’m about to buy this best-selling duvet on Redbubble. (Click the link to see what I think is the funniest and most clever duvet ever… but maybe don’t click if your boss or small children are behind you, or if you’re super conservative. This Redbubble duvet cover is PG-13.)

If you’re looking for some pros and cons about Redbubble’s duvet covers, you’ve definitely come to the right place!

Saatchi Art Review (2019)

Saatchi Art

For many art buyers, Saatchi Art has been such an integral part when collecting art online. It’s definitely one of the best art sites to discover emerging and well-known artists.

This is where I first learned about one of my favorite top-selling artists, Jean-Pierre Kunkel. (Just looking at his oil paintings makes me feel like I have no skills in painting at all! Just breathtaking talent!)

But not every gallery site is the perfect fit for everyone. So, that’s why I reviewed Saatchi Art, in hopes to enlighten you with some of its pros and cons.

Redbubble Stickers Review (2019)

Redbubble Stickers Review

Stickers are a great way to show the world who YOU really are. That’s why I bought this funny sticker on Redbubble (click the link to see the sticker and you’ll know 99% of who I am. We’re now best friends. lol.).

From showing the world you absolutely LOVE dogs more than people (I just bought this sticker too) to bragging that you’re the “best student ever” (NOT!), you’ll definitely find a sticker that expresses your true self.

But, before you buy anything, make sure to read this Redbubble stickers review!

Whether it’s one of our cars, our fridge, our water bottles, or our laptops, Redbubble stickers help my family to better organize our lives while adding flare to our material possessions. It makes it easy to find your car in a parking lot. Or to tell whose water bottle is whose. Redbubble stickers allow us to personalize our spaces and things, while supporting independent artists. And we think that is a beautiful thing.

iCanvas Review (2019)

iCanvas Review

I’m addicted to iCanvas. In fact, as I’m doing research for this post, I’m looking at yet another print that I just GOTTA HAVE! (Click here to see the print that describes me 100% even though I’m only 4″11′.)

My new obsession with iCanvas made me want to write a review about them because I really do think this is a company everyone should know about. I especially want people who feel like they could never afford to buy artwork to read this review because iCanvas is really making art affordable for all of us.

So, what makes me qualified to write this review?

  1. Experience: I bought my first iCanvas art print in 2012, and I’ve been buying prints from them ever since.
  2. Research: I read 21,577 iCanvas customer reviews online [RES] before I wrote this review (crazy, I know).

My goal for this review is to help you decide if iCanvas is right for YOU. So we’ll be looking at the pros AND CONS.

Quick Tip: Looking to buy an iCanvas print but you don’t know where to begin? Start with iCanvas’ 2019 Art Trends page to see the art prints that are trending right now!

The painting FAR exceeded my expectations and I have to admit I’m a perfectionist. I have recommended the web site to many in my retirement home and friends in our previous neighborhood. The ability to choose the size was an added plus, also. I’d give it 10 stars out of 5.

Is Redbubble Safe to Buy From? (2019)

Is Redbubble Safe to Buy From?

In 2008, I found an art print by Karin Taylor on Redbubble that I ABSOLUTELY LOVED. (She’s still one of the most popular artists on Redbubble).

I NEEDED to have it!

But there was one problem…

I had never ordered anything from Redbubble before and I didn’t know if it was safe to buy from them. But I followed my gut and bought the print (I still have and love it today).

68 Redbubble purchases later… I’m hooked. (And Redbubble’s “Find Your Thing” page is now to blame for my addiction!!! So many cool gift ideas!)

So, from my experience, I can definitely say, YES. Redbubble is definitely safe and reliable. Here’s why…
