Mat Kearney-Young Love


Mat Kearney's third album, Young Love, hit stores debuting on the #1 spot on iTunes Album and Rock charts and is currently sitting at #5!

Propelled by the sunny handclap and catchy hook of hit single "Hey Mama", Young Love is quickly making listeners fall for Mat all over again.  Check out the video for "Hey Mama" here.  And check out his really cool thinglink widget here.

If you aren't familiar with Mat's music you've probably heard some of his previous hits on your favorite TV shows.  Past songs have appeared on 30 Rock, Grey's Anatomy, The Hills, Friday Night Lights, Scrubs, NCIS, and numerous other television shows.  Mat's been winning over crowds on tours with everyone from John Mayer and Sheryl Crow to Keane and The Fray.

Our Review: 
I had heard some of his music, on tv shows. But I had never known who the artist was, until now.  He has a unique style and vibe, which I really love.  I like finding new artists and I jumped on this review when I had the chance.  I love music and I definitely am glad to have found my new favorite artist.  My family is also loving his music.  My favorite song on the CD is "She got the Honey".  I hope he comes to Salt Lake City on his next tour.     :)

Thanks O2O Network for the chance to review this CD!

Pretty Vintage Aprons * Flirty Aprons

Confession: I collect aprons. Not just any old aprons but pretty aprons. I like them to have color, charm and to look nice hanging in my kitchen as well as look nice on me. I wear aprons to cook, clean, and garden. It always makes the chore so much more pleasurable when wearing a pretty kitchen apron.

Flirty Aprons, you may have seen them in the mall, sent me one of their aprons. I chose the Marilyn Swanky Brunette. It has a beautiful vintage rose print with an accent of a mocha dotty print. Three things I love about it... 1} the vintage roses 2} the layers of ruffles 3} the fit. It fits better than a lot of aprons I have tried on. Who knew you had to try on an apron to see if it fits well. I didn't until I started my collection.

Flirty Aprons is having a fun contest Flirty Aprons ~ Freedom from domestication with a little Sugar n’ Spice campaign. Get 20 % off  with the promo code BB20 on aprons for the next six weeks. For their contest you purchase a new Flirty Apron and then create a video of you creatively destroying one of your ugly old aprons. All YouTube videos must include Flirty Aprons on the title. Email them to my Sept 10th 2011.

If you are chosen as one of the Top Ten Most Creative you will receive a refund on your apron purchase. First place winner also gets $100 Visa Gift Card.
