Viva Vantage Paper Towels {Review}

Take on both major and everyday messes in the kitchen, bathroom or any other high-spill area with Viva Vantage Choose-a-Size Paper Towels. They are a mess-management double threat and feature Kleenex's special V-Flex Weave. Each durable towel offers substantial scrubbing power to help tackle tough messes and has the absorbency to soak up major spills like a sponge. These Viva big roll paper towels also feature choose-a-size sheet size, making them ideal for cleaning up messes big or small.


These paper towels are perfect for wiping up spills and messes in my kitchen. These towels are strong and they really absorb. I had a chance to test it out on one of my spills I had recently. I accidentally spilled pop on the floor. Thank goodness it's on the tile floor and not the carpet. Just one sheet will pick up the mess. I rinsed it and reused that same one and it didn't even break apart. And also, I love the stretchiness of the Viva Vantage Paper Towels.


* Designed with a revolutionary V-Flex Weave for great scrubbing power
* Stretches to scrub
* Great for everyday messes
* Sponge-like absorbency helps soak up major spills

Volunteer Recognition Dinner at Frog Hollow Neighborhood House

On June 25th 2015, I was invited to attend the annual Volunteer Recognition Dinner Event at Frog Hollow Neighborhood House and it was amazing. It was an event where volunteers and staff get together to celebrate all of the hard work that was contributed at Frog Hollow throughout the year. The community worked together and assisted each other to help run programs smoothly and successfully.

I feel very grateful to be part of this community at Frog Hollow Neighborhood House. I think this year, I realized I have been a lot more active as event photographer, graphic designer, and blogger. The work I do is my passion and I enjoy every minute of it! 

I want to thank everyone for the support and the friendship. It means a lot to me.

I also had the opportunity to meet and chat with MLA, Jenny Kwan in person. She is a wonderful woman and very inspiring.

MaddaFella Key West Clothing and Lifestyle

It's finally summer and it's time to take out the summer apparel that's been sitting behind your closet. As I was cleaning out old clothing, I realized hubby's wardrobe needed a new update and maybe a new look. I was recently introduced to MaddaFella and browsed through their online shop. They have some great clothing with nice designs and vibrant colors. I think I should tell my hubby to check it out.

Browse through the online store to see a variety of designs from T-shirts, Shorts, Polo's, swim trunks, accessories and more. Looks like they have the perfect clothing for all day comfortable wear offshore and all night on the town.

ABOUT THE BRAND originated from the beautiful surroundings of Key West Florida. We've played, lived and fished in this area on and off for the past decade...and have been impressed with the good nature of the people, the thriving art and creative communities, the water...and all that comes with that gorgeous, endless playground, and the vibrant colors...particularly as the sun sets in the west.

Madda Fella is Caribbean slang used to express surprise or astonishment. It’s that moment when a trophy fish bites so hard you almost fall out of the boat. It’s that instant when your seaplane hits the water and you’re suddenly floating on endless blue. Madda Fella is all about the unpredictable excitement of Key West adventure, and the namesake and inspiration of our brand.

WHERE TO BUY: MaddaFella Clothing is available for purchase through their online shop. The company ships throughout US and Canada via via UPS or USPS.

"Bridge of Spies" Starring Tom Hanks and Directed by Steven Spielberg

A dramatic thriller set against the backdrop of a series of historic events, DreamWorks Pictures/Fox 2000 Pictures’ “Bridge of Spies” tells the story of James Donovan, a Brooklyn lawyer who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near-impossible task to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot. Screenwriters Matt Charman and Ethan Coen & Joel Coen have woven this remarkable experience in Donovan’s life into a story inspired by true events that captures the essence of a man who risked everything and vividly brings his personal journey to life.

Directed by three-time Academy Award®-winning director Steven Spielberg, “Bridge of Spies” stars: two-time Academy Award winner Tom Hanks as James Donovan; three-time Tony Award® winner Mark Rylance as Rudolf Abel, a KGB agent defended by Donovan; Scott Shepherd as CIA operative Hoffman; Academy Award nominee Amy Ryan as James’ wife, Mary; Sebastian Koch as East German lawyer Vogel; and Academy Award nominee Alan Alda as Thomas Watters, a partner at Donovan’s law firm. The film is produced by Spielberg, Marc Platt and Kristie Macosko Krieger with Adam Somner, Daniel Lupi, Jeff Skoll and Jonathan King serving as executive producers. The screenplay is by Matt Charman and three-time Academy Award winners Ethan Coen & Joel Coen. “Bridge of Spies” will be released in theatres on October 16, 2015.
