Hello one and all! It is hot, hot, HOT. Welcome to the first day of Summer and also to Monday's Music Moves Me. Here in AZ it is going to be 100+ everyday. Yikes.  I guess that means we need to play some hot music to go with the Summer heat.

#Review: Dirt Devil - 2-in-1 Steam+Clean with Swipes


I recently received the Dirt Devil 2-in-1 Steam + Clean machine for review from TTi Floorcare Ignite. We have a smaller kitchen that has tile floor on it. We keep it pretty clean but you understand that sometimes we just do not see the grime.




The product came un-assembled but was easily put together within minutes. In fact, that was the easiest I ever put anything together! No screws, bolts, or tools needed. Yes!
Once I picked the product up, it was light-weight and easily movable throughout the house. This is a good thing because my Mom nor I am supposed to lift anything really heavy.


A couple of nice features for us too is that the handle is long and the cord is long. Now, this may not seem like a big deal to most people, but we are taller. We do not like to have to bend over to clean, mop, or vac. The handle being longer means we are able to stand up right with no hurting back. Win!

The cord being long is also nice as we can do this whole kitchen without having to plug the Dirt Devil 2-in-1 several times. One time around with some swivel action and we are done.

The machine itself runs on water and also jet solution, which unfortunately, was not included. The spray comes out of a middle hole at the bottom of the machine. That means where the padding runs over it is going to be best cleaned but that does not mean left and right sections are not going to get clean too. I decided to run the cleaner over the floor in my Mom's office. The pad picked up the dirt and kept it right on the cleaning pad. 



The best part is, I was able to take off the pad and toss it in the washer. I just let it air dry and it was good to go again. The product does come with disposable pads too which is a plus for cleaning as well. Dirt gets caught up in them and never gets back on the floor again.

I am very happy with this and appreciative of the company sending me this for review.

Monday's Music Moves Me...Freebie Week!


Hello my fellow musical peeps! In what seems like a whirlwind of a week, we are back again for another Monday and music. This weekly musical extravaganza is hosted by none other than Xmas Dolly and co-hosted by Stacy, Colette, and me!

This weekend has been full of tragedy. I am dedicating this segment of 4M's to all of their memories. I do not mean for this to be a downer posting but more of a feeling of longing for better-ness. The beauty of music is that it often speaks from the depths of our soul. ~M.M/ Naila Moon

First up: She was only 22...Christine Grimmie


Next: They were only enjoying life as they could. #Orlando

        #Review: Ziggy Baby Jersey Cotton Fitted Crib Sheet Set, Grey/White, 2 Pack#ziggybaby


        photo enhanced from Ziggy Baby


        Many of you may or may not know that I became a grandma for the third time in April. My tiny grandson was born two months premature. I had purchased this set for his mother to use when they got a crib for him.

        Unfortunately, the photos I took of the sheets have disappeared but I can still tell you about them. The sheets came in a two pack just as shown. There was the nice zig zag or chevron pattern and the polka-dot pattern. Both sheets come in gray and white which in this case was really nice because for awhile we were not sure of the baby's sex.

        The feel of the sheets was soft and 100% cotton, in fact, it is cotton jersey which feels like a soft t-shirt to the touch. I knew that these sheets were going to be great no matter when our bundle of joy was to be born.

        I hope he gets to come home soon. When he does, he will be comfortable in these no doubt.

        Disclosure: I purchased this item with a digital code off. The views here are 100% my own and may differ from yours. ~Naila Moon
