Product Review: Stanley Steemer


This weekend we had Stanley Steemer come and clean our sofa.  Who knew they did items outside of floors.  I must say I was thoroughly impressed with the two gentlemen that came in.  They were in and out in a flash and came on time.  I didn’t even know Stanley Steemer existed in Westchester.

We had our sofa cleaned and treated for stains.  Below is a list of our pros and cons.  Over all the service was great!


  • Stanley Steemer uses a typical steam-cleaning method, using lots of hot water to extract dirt, debris and stains.
  • Free estimates for cleaning jobs are offered on this carpet cleaning company’s website.
  • Their products are environmentally safe.
  • Their water extraction process provides a deep-down clean, perfect for cleaning up before and after the holidays.
  • Appointments can be scheduled for the next day


  • Drying time was suppose to be 3 hrs ended up being 12.
  • If you live in a pre war building make sure your outlets can hold the current (ours kept blowing)
  • There is a $50 charge for for having them bring a portable machine in if you cannot have them run the 300 ft hose in your home.

Also for Stanley Steemer fans, be sure to check out actress Mia Gentile’s variations on the brand’s iconic jingle! She’s great and arranged the songs in a few different styles…from rock to country, with even a little tip of cap to Lady Gaga! Watch the video here:

For my giveaway they are offering one NYB reader a Stanley Steemer gift certificate valued at $100 to allow you to try out a cleaning service of your choice!  The first person to email us telling us why they need Stanley Steemer to come and clean their home wins the gift certificate!

Book Review: Super Moms Inc


Are you looking for ways to supplement your family’s income, but have children to take care of? Or perhaps you want to stay home with your kids, but still need to bring in a share of the household income? Perhaps you’re even a single parent, and wish you could be available for your kids when they get home from school.

Carolyn Woods is a mom of 4 who’s been the sole supporter of her family for the last 10+ years. This book includes developing goals, getting customers, and managing your family life so there’s time for family and work. It also has proven home business models you can implement right away.

Our Review:

This book is absolutely amazing!  At first I wondered whether or not this book would just graze the surface of the different ways to work from home like most websites and books on this topic do.  Boy was I wrong!  Though it is an easy read it is very thorough and straight to the point, which is good for a mom that has to juggle multiple tasks with a one year old.  Topics range from “What did not work” for her to “Designing your own business.”

I highly recommend this book to anyone searching for good information on working from home.  Please note it’s not a get rich quick book and the tone is very realistic, which is exactly what you should want when reading about this subject .

Also,there is a Kindle version at, which makes it easier to read.

Tips to Stay Germ-Free this Holiday Travel Season


Tip #1 – Soap, water and hand sanitizers are “must haves.”

Try the New PURELL Advanced Hand Sanitizer
They are now available in the following winter holiday scents: Sweet Plum, Wintergreen Mint, Holiday Spice, and Christmas Tree. PURELL Advanced kills more than 99.99% of the most common germs that may cause illness. What’s more, just one squirt of PURELL Advanced Hand Sanitizer kills as many germs as two squirts of any other national brand. It is a new, more effective formula that is available in the 1 fl oz. which is perfect for holiday travel and people on-the-go.
SUGGESTED RETAIL PRICE$1.49 for a 1 fl oz. JELLY WRAP Carrier
WHERE TO BUY: Available at major mass, food and drug locations


Tip #2 – While traveling on planes, smear a bit of Neosporin in both nose nostrils. This is supposed to prevent any germs from entering through your nose while on the plane.

banner-productsTip #3-  You can also keep yourself cold and germ-free when flying with an oral antiseptic spray. Halo spray comes in a TSA-friendly one-ounce size, and is alcohol, sugar and dye-free. There is a grape flavor for kids (over age 2) or berry or citrus for adults.

Halo kills airborne germs, including ones that cause colds and flu.

Other safety tips to avoid the flu while traveling include the following:

  • Remember that everything someone touches has to be touched by someone else – luggage handlers, etc. Handle one’s own belongings as much as possible. Wash hands often with soap and water.
  • Carry hand sanitizer and anti-bacterial wipes and use them to wash hands or wipe down surfaces such as armrests.
  • Bring one’s own pillows and blankets – they can act as a shield against the seat itself.
  • If someone has to cough or sneeze, do so into a tissue or sleeve.
  • Avoid touching the face or eyes.

Product Review: CoverGirl Blastflipstick

Disclaimer: As a BzzAgent with the website, I am asked to try, review, and spread the ‘bzz’ about certain products. These products are sent to me for free and this review is my honest, personal opinion.

Have you heard of or tried the CoverGirl blastflipstick? I received a set of three as a BzzAgent. Basically you get two shades that compliment each other in one. You get a creamy bold color on one end and on the other a shimmery shade. So you can use each on its own or blend them for your own custom color.  Great for a night out on the town but not for everyday use unless you like loud colors that pop.

“2 lipsticks in 1 BlastFlipstick! Flip your look from day to night, soft to bright, with BlastFlipstick’s double-ended lipstick duos. With a creamy shade on one side and a shimmer shade on the other, it’s two wearable, blendable, lipcolors in one!”
