Lightscoop Review & Giveaway

Disclaimer: I received a Lightscoop for reviewing purposes. As always, the opinions expressed are entirely my own.

Photography is one of my most favorite things to do (if you haven’t noticed)! Taking photos with a flash is not. In the past, I’ve become frustrated when taking photos inside ( hello dark lit restaurants), at night or with friends in a dimly lit room. Times have changed y’all!

Professor Kobre’s Lightscoop is a mirror for your camera flash which deflects the flash from the subject of your shot. The Lightscoop device is placed in front of your flash, the light is deflected off the mirror of the Lightscoop, reflected off the walls and ceiling which brightens the subject (indirectly).


Thus, your picture will not be incredibly light, your friends will not be blinded and your fear and frustration of taking these photos will disappear!

Take a look at these photos – I shot them in completely dark rooms. You’d never know!


Shot from my kitchen, no lights.


Closet. Pitch dark.


Would you have any idea that this room was completely dark?

With our natural sunlight time getting shorter everyday, this will come incredibly handy in taking those inside photos this winter and fall and is also a great gift for the holidays.

Save now: Code: DHT2013Fall to save 15% until 10/31!!!

To help you out, we’re giving away a free Lightscoop! Sign up below!

Brew Over Ice & Giveaway!

Disclaimer: I did receive product from Brew Over Ice in return for this post. All opinions are entirely my own.

Brew Over Ice

I attended BlogHer in Chicago a few weeks ago and tried out the Strawberry Pomegranate Brew Over Ice and I fell in love. Now I’m hooked!

Let’s back track for a second… I am not a fan of the “coffee” flavor. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE how coffee smells but the taste, oh the taste just isn’t for me. Needless to say, I’ve stayed away from the Keurig machines for this reason. Then they came out with the tea flavors and I’ve been a little more intrigued BUT when I found the Brew Over Ice – they got me.

008It gets pretty hot here in Texas and there’s nothing that I like more than a cool, ice cold beverage on a HOT day. Now, I can have pretty much any flavor I’m looking for in a matter of seconds. There’s a ton of flavors, coffee, Snapple variety, Green Mountain Naturals, Celestial Tea, the list goes on so you are bound to find something you like! Plus, it’s the same great convenience of getting a glass. Fill a cup with ice and tell the Keurig to go!

011Keurig has a great offers going on right now…
