Curtain & Bath Outlet were kind enough to send me a set of their curtains to review.

Curtain & Bath Outlet offers a wide selection of home decor products from bedding to bath collections. However, their specialty is curtains, drapes and window treatments. They have just about the largest selection of ready-made curtains as anyone in the country.

I received a pair of  Kelly Woven Lined Grommet Curtain Panels in Pewter.


Product description:
Price: $22.99
54″ wide
Woven fabric with a diamond pattern
Grommet panel hangs easily and is lined
Made of 75% polyester and 25% cotton with a lining of 80% polyester and 20% cotton
Machine wash cold; Tumble dry
Each panel has 8 stainless steel grommets
Panels are sold separately and are 54″ wide, 84″ length
Available in Pewter, Ivory and Sand

First I will say that the curtains were shipped out and arrived very fast! I really love the quality of the materials too, they look like designer curtains. Before knowing the prices I expected them to be a lot more expensive!

The material is heavy/thick enough for privacy, nobody would be able to see through them but they are not quite thick enough to be “black-out” curtains. I think these panels let in just the right amount of light. I was too excited to wash and dry the curtains before hanging them (explains the wrinkles you may notice) but they still look gorgeous hanging up.


The large grommets made hanging these quick and easy. The diamond pattern is so appealing to the eye. This picture does not do the panels any justice at all. They are beautiful and add such a good flare in our living room and, they are a great value. I am planning on getting more for our bedroom in a different color.

These curtains are insulated as well so I am excited to see a difference in the colder months ahead. Our big window in the living room has a little breeze, therefore these curtains will be a big help on keeping our home warm this winter.


You can purchase these panels or browse their entire selection by visiting the Curtain & Bath Outlet’s website  Curtain & Bath Outlet

Celebrate National Banana Split Day with Yonanas Healthy Dessert Maker *Review*

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.



Yonanas frozen dessert maker is the most wonderful thing I have had the pleasure to review! I have not met a child that does not love ice cream. But I have met parents who do not love to feed their children ice cream. It’s summer and that means it’s time for ice cream! Thankfully with Yonanas every child, and adult can indulge in a delicious dessert that taste just like ice cream only it’s made out of 100% fruit and much healthier for you and dairy free. You use frozen fruit to create a delicious and naturally healthy treat that is so similar to soft-serve ice cream that is really hard to tell the difference.


My daughter is an ice cream fanatic, if I let her she would eat it morning, noon, and night. My son on the other hand is lactose intolerant and so he does not get to enjoy “normal” ice cream like everybody else. Which is why I was so anxious to welcome our Yonanas machine into our home! I have frozen bananas before and attempted to make frozen banana ice cream by putting them in the food processor but that did not go as planned and It kind of just chopped them up instead of making them creamy. I have never had great results until using the Yonanas machine!!

Just to explain a little more on how it works, First, let your bananas over-ripen some until they have cheetah spots on their peels.  You then peel them slice them in half place them in a resealable plastic bag for at least 24-hours in the freezer before use.

After freezing bananas, you also freeze whatever other fruit you would like to use, at least 24-hours before using it.  I had pineapple and strawberries that I sliced and froze.

Now that I had my frozen fruit, it was time to make Yonanas 🙂   It’s recommended that you take your bananas and other frozen fruit out of the freezer about 7-10 minutes before you’re going to use it.  This allows the fruit to thaw slightly and provide the best consistency for your Yonanas.
Once you have your machine ready to go and your fruit ready as well, put a bowl under the chute to catch your Yonanas mix and get started.  The machine is extremely simple to operate!   There is only one button and it turns the machine on and off and you just simply push pieces of the frozen fruit down the chute with the plunger.  Also the machine is simple to clean too.  There are two main parts, the base (motor) and the chute.  When you break the chute down, there are five parts, but they are dishwasher safe or simply rinse with hot soapy water.
Now for the FUN part, EATING! We made strawberry Yonanas first and it was a favorite! My kids enjoyed their healthy dessert very much. They seen us making it and they were both super excited that their favorite fruit was turning into ice cream right before their eyes!


In celebration for National Banana Split Day which is today (Monday, August 25th) we made a Yonanas Split! My husband and I agree it was THE BEST Banana Split we have ever had! Heres how to make it:

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.


“At bobuCuisine we pride ourselves in providing premium kitchenware products with stylish design. Our mission is to give you the tools necessary to create great meals, while bringing a touch of class to your kitchen. Simply said, we want you to have fun while your cooking, and make your kitchen look great! “

The stainless steel peeler set from Bobu Cuisine is said to be the last peeler set you will ever need.. Do I believe it?? YES!

Peeling can be such a hassle if you are not using the right tools with sharp enough blades to get the job done. You will save a huge amount of time with these powerful stainless steel blades.  They are designed specifically for people with joint pain and/or arthritis. They are built to peel with the littlest of movement possible and will make your peeling tasks quick and easy, no matter what the size of fruit or vegetable.  No matter how large the potato is, this powerful peeler set is built to make repetitive strokes smooth and painless. Whether you are right or left-handed, all of your fruits and vegetables will be peeled quickly with skins removed efficiently.


I love these peelers. I would normally shy away from peeling anything. I sometimes would even ask my husband to peel the potatoes or an apple for our daughter but not anymore. These peelers work cleanly and efficiently making my job as easy as possible.  They are attractively designed and work very well.  Peeling a batch of potatoes for mashed potatoes is no longer a major event.
Check out these peelers on Amazon for $15.97


BoBu Ice Molds KEEPS DRINKS COLDER, LONGER – Ice rounds melt slower than regular ice cubes due to their spherical design -your individual drink or pitchers keeps their chill while preserving their flavor. Great for lemonade and ice tea pitchers. Always have some ready to go, stockpile a bunch and store them in your freezer, perfect for guests.


My whole family and I love the ice spheres. These are by far the largest Ice cubes I have seen so far.  They really do keep our drinks colder much longer than normal ice cubes.  They are perfect for the iced coffee I brew with my Keurig – even after pouring very hot coffee onto the ice sphere it doesn’t even come close to melting them.  These spheres are made from BPA Free non stick silicone.  They are very easy to use and remove the ice.  Afterwards you can hand wash or put in the dishwasher.

Darn Tough Socks Giveaway (US Only) Ends 08/31

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.


I am so excited to share my review of two pairs of socks from Darn Tough . With a name such as “Darn Tough?” you might be wondering like I was… “Are the socks actually that tough?” YES! These socks are very tough. You get what you pay for with Darn Tough Socks! These socks are made in the USA and carry a LIFE TIME REPLACEMENT GUARANTEE. If these socks wear out just send them back and they will send you a new pair.

My husband and I both received a pair to review. I received the Women’s Run No-Show Ultralight, and he received the Men’s Run No-Show Ultralight.


Darn Tough also claims that the Merino Wool made to use these socks is antimicrobial, so they repel odor and bacteria. This earns major points in my book. My husband and I go running every evening and with these being our new favorite pairs of socks I appreciate the fact that we can get more than 1 use out of them before having to throw them into the wash.  They didn’t have that gross feeling at the end of the day that most socks seem to have. And best of all, they didn’t smell! Both my hubby and I do not find our other “normal” socks comfortable anymore while running. We love our Darn Tough Socks because they are so comfortable and you can feel the padding, but without the bulkiness. Also the wool makes our socks a fast drying and breathable sock that stays cool in the hot summer and warm in the cold winter! How can you beat that?! You CAN’T!
Both pairs of socks we received are ideal for runners and cyclist. Darn Tough also makes other adult socks perfect for Hiking, Skiing, Working, Hunting, and Lifestyle. They also make socks for kids that are perfect for Hiking/Trek and Skiing/Ride.



I highly recommend Darn Tough Vermont for your sock needs, especially if you’re an active individual and want socks that are as tough as you. You can check their Store Locator , and see how many stores around you sell Darn Tough socks.

WIN IT: Darn Tough would like to offer ONE of my lucky readers the chance to see for yourself just how awesome these socks are! Enter using the Giveaway Tools Entry form below. This giveaway is open to U.S. Only and will remain open until 08/31 @11:00 p.m CST.


Younique 3D Fiber Lashes & Lucrative Lip Gloss Giveaway (US Only) Ends 08/29

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.


About Younique:

Our mission is to uplift, empower, validate, and ultimately build self-esteem in women around the world through high-quality products that encourage both inner and outer beauty and spiritual enlightenment while also providing opportunities for personal growth and financial reward.

I contacted Younique presenter Rebecca Mathweg and she was happy to partner with me on a review!


We all want BIG beautiful lashes, and so when I saw Younique had 3D fiber lash mascara I knew I HAD to try it! My eyelashes have always been nice and long, they’re just so straight and do not have the volume I would like. I knew if this worked on my stubborn lashes, it would be a winner!

The Moodstruck Fiber Lashes mascara set comes in a fancy beautiful black leather packing case. It feels and looks very luxurious and high-end.


Moodstruck Transplanting Gel: The Transplanting Gel is what you use before and after to coat the fibers. – This gel texture is the perfect texture. It’s not too thick or to thin. It’s great at volumzing and separating. You really can use this alone for the perfect mascara.

Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes: This is the secret to having extra lashes and length. I have never used fiber mascara in the past so this was all new to me.  The fibers are like mini hairs and a lot of them so you have to be careful and not use too much when applying!

Younique’s Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes Results: As you can see on the picture below my lashes are A LOT longer and THICKER. – To be honest my natural lashes never looked this dramatic and noticeable.

My experience.. this is where I messed up.  I have to be honest. The first time I used this mascara IT WAS A HOT MESS! … I got the gel on my hand. The fibers were falling everywhere because I didn’t read the instructions throughly, so  please be careful when using this mascara system (even the instructions say so) and do not get discouraged if the first time is not  what you expected. With this product it is worth it to be patient and carefully apply.

This mascara system comes with specific instructions . It’s actually my fault for being inpatient. Due to that I couldn’t get it to work the first time. After the 2nd time I got it down and they looked much better!

You can see the huge difference already and I only used a tiny bit that time. This will definitely be part of my normal beauty regimen from now on. Who can pass up having beautiful lashes?! Not me!!


Rebecca was also kind enough to send me a Younique Lucrative Lip Gloss.

I’m a little bit obsessed with lip products.  Lip gloss is my go to product, always.

Because I love glosses so much, I of course jumped at the opportunity! I decided to give the shade “Lavish” a try.  I love pinks on me and so I thought it was a perfect choice.


The first thing I noticed was that this was NOT one of those annoying sticky lip glosses.. You know that kind that your hair clings to the second you walk outside?? The Lucrative Lip Gloss has a shiny creamy finish. It is great! And the color is exactly as it looks in the tube.

If you’re in the market for a new lip gloss…I highly recommend checking out the Lucrative Lip Gloss Line from Younique Cosmetics.  There are 10 shades to choose from…one of them is sure to catch your attention!

I love how they have a little mirror on the back for perfect application on the go!


If you are interested in purchasing these products or would like more information please contact Rebecca Mathweg. She is great and would love to help answer any questions or concerns!

WIN: Rebecca is so fantastic, she would like to offer TWO of my lucky readers the chance to WIN a Younique Product! ONE will win a Younique Moodstruck 3D fiber lashes and ONE will win a Lucrative Lip Gloss in your choice of color.  This giveaway is open to U.S. Only and will remain open until August 29, at 11:00pm (central).

HideAway Pets *Review*

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.


HideAway Pets are the hot new toy that every kid is asking for! I know my daughter wanted one ever since she seen the catchy commercial that she would not stop singing and begging for one!  HideAway Pets open up to play, then curl up & hide away! HideAway Pets are available in 7 different animals including a Siberian Husky, Persian Kitten, African Lion, Snow Monkey, Lop Eared Bunny, Hedgehog, and Penguin.

Leilani and JJ of course want to collect them all and so when I got the chance to review one of these cute “pets” I was so excited. Leilani HAD to have the Lop Eared Bunny and luckily that is the one we received 🙂 She named her Floppy.


Have you heard of HideAway Pets?? Like I mentioned before, there are so many different ones to choose from and collect. Your child is sure to be able to find a new best friend. These pets are so unique because they have a hidden trick. Kids can play with them like a normal stuffed animal and when its time for a nap or some down time they can easily curl them up and hide them away. When the HideAway Pet is tucked away  (sleeping” as Leilani says) kids can use them as a pillow. My son on the other hand loves to tuck the HideAway Pet away and roll it around like a ball or play catch with it, which is very fun because the pet is so soft I do not have to worry about him breaking anything or hurting himself.

The softness is the first thing I noticed about this cuddly little friend and look at how adorable these guys look. The Lop Eared Bunny has those big floppy soft ears that my daughter can’t get enough of.


As you can see one of the secret snaps is hidden in the fur of your pets head and is easy for kids to snap their pet into the hideaway mode.


The other snap is located on the pets bottom which allows it to be tucked into a ball. Tuck in the ears, and legs and snap her shut.


Here is what the HideAway Pet looks like tucked into a cuddly ball of cuteness! You wouldn’t even know there was a cute pet hidden in there if you were unaware of a HideAway Pet.


My kids 100% approve of the HideAway Pet. Leilani kind of took her over and claimed her but she loves sharing with her brother, as long as she is the one that gets to cuddle her to sleep. This is an ADORABLE toy and is everything Leilani was hoping for and more. She was so cute non stop hugging her new friend. She talks to her and takes her everywhere she goes. They’re new BFFS!


I highly recommend HideAway Pets for all children. They are sure to love them! I know we will be adding more HideAway Pets to our home very soon because HideAway Pets are in retail stores nationwide this summer including ToysRUs, Target, Kmart, and Walmart (how exciting?!).

You can check out HideAway Pets on their Website

You can also connect with HideAway Pets on Facebook and Twitter  to keep up with their latest additions and promotions.

Master Lock’s home safety products GIVEAWAY (US/CAN) Ends 08/23

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.

Picture 1

Master Lock is known around the world as the authentic, enduring name in padlocks and security products. Many people hear the name and instantly trust Master Lock’s  promise of strength and quality.  Master Lock is continually setting new standards for lock design, application and performance. As the largest global manufacturer and marketer of padlocks, they continue to build their founder’s passion for innovation, quality, and compelling value into their expanding lines of security solutions.

I was super lucky to get to review 3 awesome products from Master Lock. With the Master Lock Magnum Laminated Padlock,   Door Security Bar, and  Storage Security Lock Box  I feel much safer whether I am traveling or just trying to stay extra safe while in my own home. This is a brand that I have always trusted and I know I can count on them for my safety needs. Just to make sure you’re keeping safe read up on Master Lock’s tips for home security below.

Master Lock offers its top six tips for home security:


1. Make Your Backyard a Safe Place – Remember to put garden tools and lawn mowers away in a locked place after use. Un-stored tools could cause a fall or tempt young children to use them as toys. Secure your shed or garage door with a high-security, weather-resistant lock, such as the Master Lock Magnum Laminated Padlock. Not only does this deter kids from using tools as toys, it also guards lawn equipment from theft.


2. Sleep Safely with Windows Open – Sleeping with open windows provides a cool breeze for pleasant rest and helps many people sleep better. Even better, it lessens the chance of succumbing to carbon monoxide poisoning, a dangerous nighttime killer. Unfortunately, it also provides easy access to your home for intruders. Before enjoying this summertime routine, take proactive measurers to ensure you do so safely. If you use a home security system (only 14 percent of North Americans do*), ensure it provides window security coverage. Otherwise, use a window blocking device that prevents windows from opening more than six inches, and ensure windows cannot be accessed from outside. While you’re sleeping, ensure all doors are locked, and safeguard patio doors from intruders with Master Lock’s Door Security Bar.


3. Designate a Family Meeting Spot – More than half of North Americans (54 percent) have not designated a meeting spot in case of a house fire.* Set one with your family now so you’re prepared should a fire ever strike. It’s also good practice to designate a meeting spot whenever you’re away from home. Whether you are at a carnival, park or away on vacation, always come up with a plan of where to meet. This will give you peace of mind in case someone in your family is separated from the group.


4. Check Your Smoke Detectors – Properly installed and maintained smoke detectors save lives and protect against injury and loss due to fire.** Yet, only seven percent of North Americans test smoke detectors monthly* — the recommended frequency to ensure they’re always working correctly. Replace batteries yearly or as soon as you hear a low-battery warning sound that usually sounds like a chirping noise. Smoke alarms should be replaced completely every 10 years.


5. Create Backups- With busy summer schedules, it’s easy to forget your keys before leaving the house. To avoid being locked out of your house, make extra copies of your keys, and keep them in a secure spot. The Master Lock Storage Security Lock Box allows you to store your extra key and have it be accessible only by those who know the combination.


6. Prepare for the Unexpected – Technology today makes it easier than ever to ensure you’re never waiting in line at an urgent care clinic without your child’s insurance information or forgetting passwords to your online accounts. Store digital copies of your family’s important medical and identification information in the free and secure Master Lock Vault for easy access from your smart phone on the go.


Now that you read all those great, helpful tips, I’ll tell you more about the products I received. I’ll start with my favorite!

Master Lock’s Door Security Bar. This Dual function security bar can be used for hinged (how I have it pictured below) and the top piece removes for sliding/patio door application.  We use this bar every night. It’s touch steel construction just gives us that little extra sense of security.  With children, you can never be to safe. And we do not have to worry about the security bar messing up our door or floor because the padded foot provides sure grip without scratching.

DSCF2287       SlidingorPatioDoors


Next is the Master Lock Storage Security Lock Box. This lock box has come in handy tremendously. It is perfect if you’re traveling and you have someone coming to check on the house for you. You can easily store a key/s or other small items such as access cards, a credit card or a note inside. It is easy to set and reset. You can set your own combination using up to 12 letters, numbers, or both. The buttons are large enough to use even in dim lighting. The internal cavity is large and the removable key hook prevents jamming. It also has a molded bumper and vinyl coated shackle that prevents scratches to your door and it’s protective weather cover prevents freezing and jamming!

DSCF2281 DSCF2274 DSCF2276

Lastly, is the always reliable Master Lock Magnum Laminated Padlock. I think my husband collects these (haha). He can’t have enough. I can’t say I blame him because they are amazing. The Tough-Cut™ octagonal boron-carbide shackle is 50% harder than hardened steel. It is also weather resistant, pry resistant, scratch resistant, and it has a 4-pin cylinder for increased pick resistance! They are perfect for work sheds, tool boxes, lockers, and whatever else you can put a lock on. Like I said, we have used these padlocks for years and they have never failed us.


I know our items that we lock up with Master Lock products will always be safe and will keep my family safe. You can use them for anti-theft products or just use them to keep curious children out of the outdoor work shed, or tool closet so they do not get hurt. Either way you’re guaranteed safety. I for one appreciate that! I give a HUGE THANK YOU TO MASTER LOCK!

SHOP: Search HERE to find out where you can purchase Master Lock products in a store near you. Or shop online at

I am not ashamed to admit that her dad and I actually love watching Sofia with her and so of course I did not deny her request. Leilani loved this episode as much as all of the others plus some. Snow White is one of Leilani’s favorite princesses and so this episode got extra points. She loves that the Sofia the First: The Enchanted Feast DVD has some of her other favorite episodes as well.

I received Soybu’s Allegro Capri in orchid tie dye to review. When I saw these capri’s I absolutely fell in love with the style! I love Soybu because I feel like I still look great and extremely fashionable while wearing their clothing which is so important to me because I LOVE fashion.

I obviously was so attracted to the design on these pants because it resembles tie dye but I also love this soft purple. The capris are so feminine and pretty!


Comfort gets 5 stars just like the design. These are by far the most comfortable capri’s I’ll ever own! I started doing Yoga (for beginners) and as I am learning all these poses that are so new to me I can move freely and not feel like my pants are restricting me. I love that the waistband does not roll up and these capri’s give me all the support needed.

All of the items from Soybu I have received I have been entirely impressed with!! I am so very happy to have such beautiful clothing for my daily exercising. Let’s be honest, when you have something nice to wear it is so much more motivational to get up and get going!
