New Roll & Stow Makes Painting WAAAAYYY Easier {Review + Giveaway}

My mom has always been a handy sort who is very DIY when it comes to home renovations. Over the years whenever she wanted to repaint a room she'd just do it herself. Back in the summer she moved into a new place. The walls were a dark brown colour. She wanted to change them to a sunny creamy tone. But she did something crazy and decided to hire someone else to paint. I was a bit surprised, but I get it. She's sixty. She's working a full time job. She had the spare money, why not have someone else take care of it for a change?

So she arranged for someone to come on a specific date, just after she took possession but before the intended "move in" time. But the guy didn't show. And he didn't come on the next day either. At which point my mom said "To heck with this, I'll just do it myself." But then there wasn't time, so she moved into an unpainted house. Once she was moved in she started painting, and stopped and started, over and over many times. Six months later and she's just finally finishing up the bit behind the couch.

All of which is to say this thing here, it's brilliant, and I wish we'd had it at the beginning of this project. Meet the Roll & Stow. It's an all-in-one painting storage / transport / anti-drying container.

Top 10 Kids’ Attractions in Florida

If you want to book the perfect family trip, an all inclusive holiday to Florida could be just what you’re after. There is certainly no shortage of attractions in the Sunshine State for youngsters to enjoy. Here, in no particular order, are ten of the very best.

1) Universal Studios
One top attraction for kids is Universal Studios. This Orlando-based theme park is home to a host of rides and film-related indoor attractions. Highlights include the Revenge of the Mummy and the Simpsons Ride.

2) The Wizarding World of Harry Potter
Along with Universal Studios, the Islands of Adventure is now home to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. If your little ones can’t get enough of this spectacled hero, this could be the perfect place to spend a day. Be sure not to miss the signature ride: Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey.

3) Walt Disney World
Sticking with theme parks, Walt Disney World can make the ideal setting for a family trip. The mother of all amusement resorts, it spans an area the size of San Francisco and it is set over four parks. Just make sure you set aside plenty of time to explore the place!
