[REVIEW] PeachSuite.Com

My Dear Friends,

Having worked in a hotel, I've always been a little fascinated by the seemingly endless supply of necessary items (toiletries, towels, pillows, etc.) that are always on hand.

I began to wonder who the force behind this was.  That's when I discovered PeachSuite.com - a hotel supply online vendor.  This site seriously has just abotu everything you could think of pertaining to the hospitality industry.

Peach Suite even carries hotel bar supplies!  You can stock up on bar equipment, glasses, bartender supplies & more!

Located in Atlanta, Georgia, Peach Suite caters to Atlanta hotel supply needs all over the area.  Don't feel left out though, Peach Suite can help you no matter where you are.  The site can help with any size order --- and save you money in the process.  You won't have to go through transporting supplies yourself or the hassle of local deliveries.  Peach Suite provides the convenience of having the products shipped directly to your location, cutting out all the middlemen.

[REVIEW] Ellie Fitness Clothing

My Dear Friends,

I often talk about weight loss on both of my blogs.  It's a struggle and sometimes disheartening.  It takes hard work and perseverance.  However, there's no better feeling than being able to fit into smaller clothing sizes.  I'm working towards being a healthier, more fit person.  It's a challenge but I can do it!

Everyone wants cute workout wear, right?  When I started working out I wore baggy t-shirts and long pants because I didn't want people to see my tummy or my rolls.  With hard work, I can fit into Ellie Fitness Clothing

[Review] Rosetta Translation

My Dear Friends,

Each month I get a monthly stats report and as my blog grows, my stats show that I am gaining readers all over the world.  What an amazing thought....that my little blog could draw people in from all over the world!  It's wonderful and humbling to connect with people who have an interest on what my blog focuses on --- saving money, reviews and giveaways.

I got to wondering about how people from other countries read my blog.  My posts are in English so I figured there must be some sort of translation service that allows the text to be translated into the language of their choice.  I got to looking around through various sites but the one I really liked was Rosetta Translation.

They specialize in high-quality translations for corporate clients, including legal translation, such as contracts, both for corporates and legal firms.  One very interesting face is that 8 of the 10 leading UK law firms use Rosetta Translation on a regular basis.

Rosetta Translation specializes in multilingual language solutions.  The headquarters are in London but they also have offices in Shanghai, New York, Luxembourg and Paris.  Some services offered include interpreting, localization services, transcription, subtitling and document translation in over 150 languages with an emphasis in legal, technical, financial and life sciences translation.

If you're in the market for any of the above mentioned translation services, I highly recommend you check out Rosetta Translation.

Handcrafted wallcoverings are here to stay.

Any of you gentlemen out there in the middle of a home remodel heard of a company called Atrium Wallcoverings? Well if you haven’t let me tell you a little secret. They rock! And I’ll tell you why. Remember in your last home or apartment when your shoulders and arms were killing you because of all the painting. Remember the darned drop cloths and spilled paint and taping off every single baseboard? Taping all the crown molding? Cleaning paintbrushes and buckets? Uhgghh. I fell myself reaching for the muscle rub just thinking about it.

So here’s the secret. Tell your significant other that instead of painting why not do wall coverings. Now trust me, you will get an instant negative response as visions of dated eighties type wallpaper dance through her head. Well, just make sure your laptop or iPad is near and steer her over to Atrium’s website. They have the most amazing handcrafted wall coverings she’ll ever see.

First she’ll think that there’s a catch but once she gets sucked in to all of their incredible designs and how great everything looks she’ll never know of your ulterior motives. And as she goes on and on to her girlfriends on the phone about the wall coverings that she picked you can throw out the old paint rollers and paintbrushes. And maybe even the muscle rub too.

This sponsored post was brought to you by your friends at Atrium Wallcoverings.

Looking for a buyers agent? Look no further.

The entire process of locating a home, whether it be your first starter home or that mansion that you can finally afford, can be a stressful process. It’s a huge investment and a responsibility that you will be reminded of every month. Trust me, I know firsthand. You see my wife and my children, our little family, recently relocated to South Florida from Los Angeles. Don’t worry it wasn’t a crazy move as we were both born and raised on Florida. So we’ve got many friends and family over here in Florida but the prospect of finding a great little home that we could also afford was stressful to say the least.

The great part is that with all of those friends and family we were bound to find a buyers agent that could help us. So as you can imagine my wife and I cracked open the laptop, fired up the cell phones and started asking everyone that we knew in South Florida for recommendations on someone that could help us. But we were picky on what kind of agent we were looking for. We wanted someone that knew South Florida real estate intimately not just someone that dabbles as a real estate agent on weekends.

After about a dozen or so calls and emails from my wife and I we kept hearing the same agent’s name over and over again. The name we heard was Susan Rindley. So as you can imagine we wanted to see if she had a website and how competent she seemed after our friend’s recommendations. You can tell the minute you land on Susan’s homepage that she will seriously be able to help you find a home. She certainly helped us.
