Father's Day Guide: High Quality, Affordable Ties for Dad #giftsforhim


Father's Day is never complete without a tie for Dad. Unfortunately, as we scoured department stores looking for a quality tie at a decent price, we came up empty. When did ties get so expensive?? We couldn't find a single quality option under $40. Some were upwards of $80. A little defeated, we decided to take to the internet and make it our mission to find high quality, affordable ties to gift to Dad this year. In much less time than we spent wandering from store to store in the mall, we came across the perfect site: Cheap-neckties.com. Don't let the name fool you! The prices are cheap, but the quality of these designer ties is high. At ties starting at $5, how can you resist taking a look?

This Father's Day, give Dad a gadget he'll really love with the UFO 3000 Quadcopter Drone. Whether he's a tech guy, a gadget fanatic or a child at heart, this gift is sure to impress him. 

Great for beginners, this high visibility UFO 3000 Quadcopter Drone offers both low and high speed options for easy navigation during flight. It's compact design and precision steering allow it to zip around in the air, performing awesome stunts and 360┬║ flips with the push of a button.

No need to labor over lengthy instructions. Dad will be flying almost immediately, day or night! For nighttime flight, the ultra bright LED lights on the UFO 3000 light up the sky as it flies in the dark for an extra bit of fun and easy visibility.

Miracle Skin Transformer Fluid Finish Foundation


I love the Miracle Skin Transformer skincare line, particularly the masks and moisturizers. Naturally, I was especially excited when I received an offer to try a product from their makeup line — the Miracle Skin Transformer Pure Reflection Fluid Finish Foundation. I have a hard time finding a foundation that gives me decent coverage without feeling and looking weighty. A lot of the foundations on the market today act like a heavy mask that mute skin's natural glow and give it a thick, layered look. The Pure Reflection Fluid Finish Foundation boasts better coverage without sacrificing skin health.

3 Books to Teach Kids About Cities Around the World #LonelyPlanetKids #kidsbooks


Whether you're traveling to another country or planning a summer staycation, summer break is a great time for kids to learn about the world. Lonely Planet Kids has found a great way to introduce kids to three of the world's greatest cities from the comfort of their own home or on-the-go with their Pop-Up Cities book series!

Children can read about New York, London and Paris as each city comes alive for them with pop-up features of some of the most recognizable landmarks in each city. We love the small size and sturdy binding of these books, which makes them a great choice for travel. The illustrations are bright and colorful and the pop-ups are engaging for kids. Each book contains six pop-up features and makes a great talking piece to have a discussion with your child.

Gear Up Garage Bike Rack #organization #garagestorage #bikerack #forthehome


This weekend we vowed to get our garage organized once and for all. My first goal was to find a solid bike rack to store our bikes on the wall, since it felt like an obstacle course each day trying to get to our car. After researching recommendations online, we went with the Gear Up Floor-to-Ceiling Aluminum Bike Rack and couldn't be happier with it.
