It’s Christmas….in July

It’s Christmas….in JULY!

This giveaway is sponsored by the awesome people from

Now that the fourth of July is over, back to school is almost here, so you better get your Halloween costume and Christmas presents bought because HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I read online that Christmas in July is typically celebrated on July 25th. I’m not sure if thats true or not because I honestly celebrate Christmas all the time. I’m always in the Christmas spirit and if you are too you should check out new Ugly Pajamas and Onesies.

I couldn’t pick just one, and I’m sure you won’t be able to either. All of the options make me so excited for the Christmas season.

I chose the Grinch onesie for my son and a cute pair of Christmas Story lounge pants for myself . Not only are our pjs super comfy. They’re super cute! I adore my sons grinch pjs and how they show The Grinch’s tiny heart growing in size. The details are great.

I’m going to let this Giveaway run until Thursday July 25th in the spirit of Christmas. The winner gets to choose their own pair of Christmas pjs!

Shinesty *review*


Alright ladies and gents, do you like to stand out and look downright good in what you’re wearing?

Ofcourse you do!


I don’t quite love the idea of sticking out in a crowd, but sometimes, when I see a piece of wardrobe I absolutely love and it speaks to me in a silly, my kind of humor way, I just HAVE to have it!


Allow me to introduce you to Shinesty. Please have your big girl/boy pants on before you travel to their website because they are not for the faint of heart… Oh I’m just kidding, they’re not THAT bad…but as their motto states “Stay weird and Shine on”.

The lovely people from Shinesty welcomed me into their weird world with an opportunity to review one of their Eagle Kimono  and this Summer Nights Navy Stars Hoodie and Shorts Set.


1st of all, I’m going to say not only do I feel like a boss when I put this Kimono on, but holy quality!


This thing is so silky smooth with a nice weight to it, so that it doesn’t feel cheap like some other ones I’ve felt before. And yes, I will sit on my porch and drink coffee in this thing until I find a sweet pool party to wear it to like the people on the website are. I say it feels heavy, but it’s nice and not too hot to wear it while you’re outside either.


It’s also a great alternative to your average “beach cover up”. It’s a great way to protect your skin while out doing summertime outdoorsy things. I can see myself now standing in my backyard waving at my neighbor 🙂 How patriotic of me, huh?

Livin the American dream.

Next, let’s just talk about these pjs, ok?


I wear these too much. I pictured myself lounging on my patio furniture while my husband grills us dinner, meanwhile I’m sipping a cocktail enjoying the summer sunset. Sounds nice. I probably will do that…more than once, but before that I will rock this set as an outfit for as long as I can get away with it. These are the most comfortable pajamas ever.


The hood on this top is so fun.


We live right by the river, so even our summer nights get cool sometimes. This is perfect for those “start warm, end chilly” nights.


I can confidently say that I know I don’t have to look blah and boring when I’m wearing anything from Shinesty. Their hilarious array of clothing choices for men and women are so far from ordinary.
If you need a great gift for someone with a great sense of humor and a love for the finer things in life, I will recommend Shinesty
over and over. Have fun, let loose, and for the love of everything stay weird.
Excuse me while I continue to stretch my Mother’s day “day off” out and lounge all day. In my starry pj’s of course 😉

Curtain Review from

Disclosure: From Downriver To Downright Country receives products in order to conduct a review, no monetary compensation was provided unless noted otherwise. All opinions are 100% my own. In case of a giveaway the sponsor is responsible for the delivery of prize(s), unless noted otherwise.


Spring cleaning is among us, and I don’t know about everyone else, but when I spring clean I like to rearrange furniture,  and change the all around look of certain rooms.

Curtains always make a world of difference in a room, so that is the first thing I think to change for a new look. Something so simple can make your room feel like a totally new place.

Thanks to curtains are less expensive than you’d expect.  Which is quite the relief if you like to change your homes look around as often as I do.

I received the Bryce 84” panels to review for my large patio door windows. They were everything I wanted and more. These beautiful,  large, curtains are perfect for decor.


They’re heavyweight and made with fantastic quality. You can see just by looking at them that they are worth every dime plus some.

Celebrate Christmas with Ugly Christmas Sweaters!! *Giveaway*


Christmas Season is officially here! I say “officially” because I’ve already seen friends put their trees up. Is it ever too early for Christmas time cheer, though? Honestly, No. The answer (in my opinion) will forever be no.

I love everything about Christmas, but one of my absolute favorite things are the parties. Ugly Christmas Sweater parties to be exact. I always see these awesome sweaters people wear and I always assume they must make them themselves for their sweaters to look as crazy as they do. But recently I learned of  and you just have to go on and see for yourself how amazingly creative and unique these sweaters are.

My other favorite thing about the Holidays are the movies! I was so happy to see that our favorite holiday movies and Ugly Christmas Sweaters go hand in hand!! I LOVE National Lampoons Christmas Vacation. It is not Christmas for me and my husband until we watch that movie. Of course when I saw the Christmas Vacation Sweater I knew I had to have it! It had my name all over it!!!


I like my sweaters to fit a bit baggy, so I ordered a size Medium and it fits just as I like it. I can’t wait to rock this sweater at all my Christmas gatherings this year. I even told my kids that mommy is going to wear this sweater for every Christmas from here on out.

Ugly Christmas Sweater  is offering a great giveaway for F.D.T.D.C. readers!! ONE of my lucky followers will win a $40.00 credit for!! So, go on, take a look around the website and come back and comment with your favorite sweater! Make sure you record your entry on the Giveaway Tools form below.
