Fast Acting Advil

Saturday, October 18, 2014

I had an opportunity to try the Fast Acting Advil as part of Crowdtap. All opinions and experiences are my own.

Fast acting Advil® Film-Coated is the newest innovation from Advil® with an Ion Core designed to stop pain before it gets worse!


I was pleasantly surprised on how fast it worked for my headache. I have been suffering from a headache from stress this past week from moving and really needed relief. I grabbed the Advil and was back to packing in less than a half an hour. Will definitely be recommending this to anyone who is suffering from any aches and pains. Feeling like this will be new relief and happy to have been able to share some samples with my family who came to help us move. After all of the heavy lifting I am sure they used their sample of Advil for their aches and pains.

Why Gray Away by Everpro?


Let's face it. We all grow older sooner or later and probably have already fought those "stray grays" that seem to pop up out of no where! Well, Gray Away is a fast and easy alternative for touching up your roots in between colorings. It provides amazing coverage that looks great and natural and is an easy fix for those pesky grays.




1 Lucky Winner Will Win a 1 Year Supply of Gray Away Plus a $50 Visa Gift Card!


About Gray Away

It’s hard enough to make it to the salon every six weeks, let alone every two weeks when your gray roots start to show up again. Whether you have limited time or a limited budget we want to introduce you to the perfect root touch-up solution – Gray Away by EVERPRO Beauty. We all have our little beauty secrets, and Gray Away should be in every woman’s beauty arsenal.


Did you know that 70 – 80% of women over 40 color their gray hair, but that 75% of women are not using a temporary root touch-up between colorings because they are not satisfied with what is on the market? We see that as an opportunity to share our favorite solution to a problem that affects more than 60 million women.


Why Gray Away?

Gray roots start to show only 2 weeks after hair coloring, Gray Away is an easy and convenient way to spray away gray roots instantly.

It extends the life of hair color saving both time and money.

Gray Away does not contain dyes, it contains mineral derived pigments and it is safe for everyone to use, even pregnant women!

Gray Away is a great value ($12.99 for 1.5 oz.) and is available in drugstores nationwide and online.

Baby Approved baby food

Tuesday, September 9, 2014



I am loving the new Beech-Nut® baby food and my granddaughter's reaction and love for it. Her newest try was the carrot broccoli & strawberry. As you can see she wanted to open the jar herself.

There are a lot of different combinations. Some of them are just apple and red bean, also sweet potato, orange and pineapple. Strange combinations for me to understand, but Madison seems to love them.

What I love about these new Beech-Nut® baby foods is how they are made with no artificial preservatives. They blend before cooking so nothing is taken out of the food. They use a method called Deaeration, which simply means taking the air out of the food. Their baby food is indirectly heated cooking method. This helps on not getting all of the nutrients out of the food.

I have been totally impressed with their new baby food. Give it a try your baby will love it.

11 Steps on Moving with less stress

Monday, September 8, 2014

Moving can be a very stressful time for the whole family. So what can you do to ease into the process and make it less stressful? For me it was a learning process. I moved several times as an adult due to my husband's job and it seems we are probably not done moving.

So for me taking steps can make it a lot easier on everyone.

1. Get kids involved in where they are moving to by taking them to the new home and let them explore. They can pick out their bedrooms and help pick colors and designs of their rooms.

2. Supplies include boxes, tape, newspaper, bubble wrap, hand cart, tools and markers to mark boxes. If you have it in your budget hire a moving company that will box and move your things for you.

3. Do one room at a time. However letting the kids help pack can sometimes slow you down so have them help do their rooms. I know for me my kids would pack anything and everything in their room, including garbage! Make sure you mark the contents and room they will be going to when you move.


4. Get everything together that you will no longer be needing and take it to a donation center or have a Moving Sale. Be sure to advertise that it is a moving sale, they tend to bring a lot of people.

5. When packing opt for a easy meal like take out, on the grill with hotdogs and hamburgers. Go out for a meal! It saves on having to use dishes and washing them. Use your crockpot for a one pot meal if cooking at home is must.

6. Have friends and family help pack items with you and to help you move. I always invite them over for a house warming party after we have settled in. Cook a meal for them as a way of saying Thank you. I always tell them no gifts, we just want to have them over for a meal because we appreciate their help.

7. Gather up all of the utility companies and other bills and start giving them a call to change your address.

8. You can go to the post office and get a moving kit. A lot of times it will have coupons and helpful tips in it for making your move easier. You will be able to do your change of address when you are there.

9. When bringing boxes to your new home put them in the room where the belong as soon as you bring them in the home. This saves a huge pile of boxes that you will have to go through and move again.

10. Get beds set up when everything is in the home. Spend your first night in bed instead of on the floor!


11. If you have the time make some popcorn and pop in a movie for some family fun in your new home.

I was going to add more steps but I think unpacking for me was a slow process. I did however unpack the kitchen and bathrooms first. They are the two rooms that have most of your necessities in them.

Happy Moving and enjoy your new home!

Milk!

Friday, September 5, 2014

Organic or not?

How healthy is it for you?

It can be, but only if it is organic.

No one wants to hear that it is full of hormones. These hormones can cause early puberty in females.

Main ingredient in milk is carbohydrates and it is lactose. So thinking drinking just a little being lactose intolerant will be ok, is false. I am lactose intolerant but love milk, so it hard for me to give it up.

If you drink it unpasteurized it can be harmful to your health. One of the main concerns is that it can contain E-coli bacteria.

Some interesting facts is cows can produce enough milk for 90 glasses a day!

Benefits of milks are Vitamin D, Protein and Calcium.

If you are going to drink milk consider organic, especially for young children. It does cost a lot more but well worth the benefits over regular milk. Organic milk can cost about $6 or more a gallon compared to $3 to $5 in our area. Organic milk comes from cows that are grass fed, no hormones or antibiotics.

Shelf life of milk that has been opened is 5 to 7 days for all types of milk. With un-fresh milk you can smell, bad texture or discoloring are all indications. The same goes for anything you make milk with. If it is good for 5 to 7 days so will the dish you prepared be. Organic milk lasts a lot longer than pasteurized milk. This is due to the way the preserve the product.

I am not discouraging drinking or buying regular non-organic milk. I personally prefer organic because of the added things in pasteurized milk.


Social Media follows and followers

Thursday, September 4, 2014

Ever Wonder why you can't follow more people on your social media accounts. It is because some set limits on the amount of follows without having the followers. It is a way they control spamming.

Twitter Practices


How many people have you followed that haven't followed you back? For me it is a lot. I'm not sure if there is something called common courtesy in the twitter world but I try to follow the people who take the time to follow me. Why not, it is a great way to reach out to people who are interested in what you have to say. I started using a program that allows me to see who is not following me and who unfollows me. If someone happens to unfollow me, I simply unfollow them. Twitter is a great way to learn about new products, blog posts, your favorite celebrity, news and so much more! Keeping a good healthy relationship with your followers is a win win to me.

Pinterest

I follow over 5000 pinners but get followed by only a little over 1400. I go through people who follow me and follow them back! I have found so many great recipes on there. Craft ideas like crazy, need ideas for baby showers, birthdays and pretty much any party you can think of, there are always neat ideas.

Instagram


What can I say about Instagram other than it is really a great way to see some really awesome pictures. Again I follow way more people than what follow me back. I am ok with this but why not follow those who follow you.

With these few that I mentioned and there are more like Google Plus, Facebook, Sverve, Inlinked and Foursquare. Sadly some of them limit your follows because you don't have the followers. So for me it is just a practice for me to return the favor.

Welcome to the $150 Visa Gift Card Giveaway Event

Sponsored by Pure Crafted Beds

Hosted by Mom Powered Media

Pure Crafted Beds is a company who knows Beds. Their factory was started in 1946 and is still owned by the original family and into their third generation! They began by renovating porch furniture and mattresses in the 1940's, to a modern manufacturing facility located in Lansing, Michigan. They've been in business close to 70 years and have brought forth an amazing selection of products that will give you a great night's sleep. Your comfort is their business!

Each bed is "hand-crafted" and they always strive to provide the best value for each customer, whether at $299 or $2,999.

They carry two basic mattresses the TruEssence and TruSlumber. The only difference between the two beds is the core foam layer, and the TruSlumber bed does not have a base layer of foam. This helps reduce the overall height of the bed, which makes it perfect for children, bunk beds, and other situations where a thinner mattress is required!

However the unsurpassed quality remains the same in both!

purecrafted1One of the most fantastic features of Pure Crafted Beds is their use of an innovative product called the Eco Shield Cover. Every Pure Crafted Bed has this unique EcoShield cover. This amazing cover is resistant to bed bugs, dust mites, mosquitoes, and moths... all without any artificial chemicals!

ecoshield_banner

The proprietary EcoShield fabric is infused with Geraniol, a natural plant extract which provides all natural protection. Many anti-bed bug and dust mite products on the market today use synthetic chemicals. EcoShield® is the first product that is truly 100% natural, with no artificial chemical additives that uses a unique micro-capsule delivery system for long-lasting effects! Through a special process the Geraniol is infused into our EcoSheild® cover, and is slowly released over time as movement occurs on the mattress.

EcoShield® is Scientifically Proven!

10 Winter fun ideas for kids

Tuesday, September 2, 2014
Let's face it if you live in colder regions school will be cancelled. We had days to make up and they ended up going a week beyond their normal release date. School was cancelled now what? Here are some great activities for cold weather fun.

1. Sledding, snow angels and snowman. Snow coloring is a great way they can add some color to all the white. Just use a chemical free empty spray bottle, fill with water and food color of their choice. -- only if weather is not too cold. Keep them bundled!

2. Age appropriate games

3. Homemade playdough Recipe
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon cooking oil
1 cup water
Food coloring as needed but I prefer Koolaid

Mix all ingredients in a heavy pan

Cook on medium heat. Stir constantly while cooking for 3 minutes. It will begin to pull away from pan when done.

Remove from heat and let it cool till warm to the touch. Mix like you would if you were kneading dough! Do this until smooth consistency.

For storage use airtight containers. The dough will keep for weeks.

4. Craft supplies and a good variety of things for hours of creating

5. Books of their favorite characters or series.

6. Have them help cook a snow themed meal. Pizza in the shape of a snowman, they can put their toppings on to create the snowman.

7. Make a bird feeder with pine cones. Spread peanut butter on with a high quality bird seed to roll them in. You can cut a string to hang from a tree in a window you can all see out of, to watch them eat! You can also use old toilet paper rolls to put the peanut butter and seeds on. Just cut a hole on two sides and stick string through to hang.

8. Crayons and coloring books or print out their favorite character on free printable sites. A good place to go is the website of their favorite characters.

9. Puzzles are a great activity for the whole family to do.

10. Do a clean out of toys and books they no longer use and have them box them up for charity or a family in need. Kids love to help others!

Have any other great ideas? I would love to hear them!

Not to early to prepare winterizing yourself and your home list

Since I live in the colder region of United States we always have to prepare early. I'm not ready but I decided to prepare the best that I can for it. One major thing is an emergency kit. It is not uncommon for us to go without power due to snow and ice. So get a kit together for emergencies first.
Huge list of items to have for an emergency
At least two flashlights (make sure it works) and batteries(check expiration dates on them)- don't use candles because in an emergency fire you may not be able to be reached by emergency workers.
Cell phone and extra batteries for an emergency. Also buy a portable charger in case you don't have an extra battery.
Battery powered radio for any alerts or updates about weather.
Warmth by extra blankets for everyone in the house. If you have a safe Kerosene burner it would be a good idea to get plenty of fuel. Keep them away from anything that could catch fire. Also make sure that Kerosene heaters are legal in your area. Fireplace get firewood. Have plenty in the home in case you can't get out of the house.
Make sure that you have a way of putting out a fire with an extinguisher and an alarm to alert you of a fire.
Make sure you have a carbon monoxide detector also.
Generators are great but only use outdoors. Make sure you have plenty of fuel to run for at least 3 to 4 days.
If you don't have a generator then cooking can be difficult but not impossible. If you can get to your grill then use it, so stock up on propane tanks. Who said grilling is only for summer?
Having these food supplies can greatly keep you from being hungry and no way to get to the store.
Plenty of drinking water for everyone in your family to make it for a week without running water. You can buy storage tanks for water. If you have the room and money if not buy a gallon here and there till you have enough.
If you have an extra source of heat for pipes it is a good idea to have them on the water pipes so that they don't freeze. Of course winterizing them is a must for colder climates. One thing my mom always did was leave them on to slowly drip to keep it flowing.
Food to get for healthy eating when you are unable to cook like you normally would.
Oatmeal for breakfast and frozen fruit to add to your oatmeal.
Peanut butter is a great lunch item.
Tuna or canned chicken for an easy meal you don't have to cook.
Bread and crackers
Canned beans are a great source of protein.
Granola with raisins and nuts
Milk you can keep cold in a room that is not heated.
Healthy soups
You can get produce it should last a week if you buy fresh.
Buy juices for a healthy drink option.
If you have a baby don't forget their food supply of baby food and formula. Have a great stash of Diapers, wipes, ointment, bottles and everything else you would normally have for them.
Vitamins
Medications


For your home prepare your home before it even starts to get cold.
Insulate pipes
Water heater blanket
Extra insulation in the attic if possible
Get your gutters cleaned out
Any holes in your homes foundation need to be addressed to keep the cold out.
If you don't have great insulated windows buy a window insulation kit and cover all of your windows.
Check for air around the doors, you can also buy great kits for insulating your door cracks.
Window air conditioners should be removed if not possible insulate around them with kits at your store and cover the air conditioner.
Turn off water valves for hoses outside if possible.
Crawl space is also important to insulate

For your car
Get your car a maintenance check by a certified mechanic
Snow tires for extra traction.
Have a safety kit ready for any possible scenario that may come.
Flashlight extra batteries
Radio with extra batteries
Shovel and kitty litter to get you out if stuck
Water and food
Extra blankets
Booster cables
Chains for tires and chains for towing
First aid kit
Cell Phone and extra battery for emergency calls
Waterproof matches
Map for location
Flares
Emergency sign for window

This is a lot but this is a great start for making it a bit easier on you for the Just in case scenarios.

What else am I missing? please comment so I can add





Samsung Mobile take it back program



Have an old Samsung product you aren't using? I plan to upgrade my phone here in a few months from the S4 to the S5 and was not sure what to do with my old phone. Checking out all of their products I happened to see they had product recycling. In order to recycle you must do the following..

completely discharge your mobile device's battery
remove your SIM card and store it for safekeeping
erase your personal information (email, text messages, etc.)
back up your contacts & documents using provided software

You must fill out the form and will be printable as a pre-paid postage label.

Your phone and accessories must be in a 5.5"x7.5" envelope.
Simply put your label on and take to post office for delivery to their recycling program.

Check out the Samsung Recycle Program it is simple

I would love to get the Samsung Galaxy S® 5 (Verizon), Gold.


I have the white S4 now and love it, but I always upgrade when my 2 year contract is up.

Bloggers Needed Annual Supply of Gray Away

Bloggers Needed ~ Annual Supply of Gray Away & $50 Visa Gift Card

1 Year Supply of Gray Away Plus a $50 Visa Gift Card!

Gray Away1

&

Visa33

I am hosting a giveaway for Gray Away where one lucky winner will receive a 12 month supply of Gray Away PLUS a $50 Visa Gift Card! I need your help spreading the word for this one!

Let's face it. We all grow older sooner or later and probably have already fought those "stray grays" that seem to pop up out of no where! Well, Gray Away is a fast and easy alternative for touching up your roots in between colorings. It provides amazing coverage that looks great and natural and is an easy fix for those pesky grays.

About Gray Away
It’s hard enough to make it to the salon every six weeks, let alone every two weeks when your gray roots start to show up again. Whether you have limited time or a limited budget we want to introduce you to the perfect root touch-up solution – Gray Away by EVERPRO Beauty. We all have our little beauty secrets, and Gray Away should be in every woman’s beauty arsenal.

Did you know that 70 – 80% of women over 40 color their gray hair, but that 75% of women are not using a temporary root touch-up between colorings because they are not satisfied with what is on the market? We see that as an opportunity to share our favorite solution to a problem that affects more than 60 million women.

Why Gray Away?
Gray roots start to show only 2 weeks after hair coloring, Gray Away is an easy and convenient way to spray away gray roots instantly.
It extends the life of hair color saving both time and money.
Gray Away does not contain dyes, it contains mineral derived pigments and it is safe for everyone to use, even pregnant women!
Gray Away is a great value ($12.99 for 1.5 oz.) and is available in drugstores nationwide and online.

Our vacation to Colonial Williamsburg

Friday, August 29, 2014
We spent a week at Colonial Williamsburg. If you ever plan to go get the resort packages. You get free tickets to event and free breakfast in the morning and it is a great spread. Going out to eat at the Colonial Williamsburg owned restaurants can get very expensive. Don't be afraid to get out your travel aps on your phone and do a search in surrounding areas. We honestly didn't think about it until our last couple of days after every meal cost a lot.

We loved our room it was very period correct other than the tv and Keurig in our room.... We didn't turn our tv one time we were so busy and at the end of the day totally worn out.

Strange Laws in Your state

So I finally had some free time while M is playing with her toys. Reading a post on Facebook made me want to look up the dumb laws in this state that I now call my home, Indiana. I am originally born and raised a Buckeye! We had to move away due to my husbands plant closing down and having to transfer to the closest place to Ohio. Anyway here they go

I got these from Dumb Laws

Waitresses may not carry drinks into a restaurant or bar.

It is illegal for a man to be sexually aroused in public. --- I just have to say this must have been an issue at one time for it to be a law! lol

Hotel sheets must be exactly 99 inches long and 81 inches wide. --- Hmmm wonder if this is enforced

If any person has a puppet show, wire dancing or tumbling act in the state of Indiana and receives money for it, they will be fined $3 under the Act to Prevent Certain Immoral Practices.

Anyone 14 or older who profanely curses, damns or swears by the name of God, Jesus Christ or the Holy Ghost, shall be fined one to three dollars for each offense, with a maximum fine of ten dollars per day. ---- Indiana would be rich!

A three dollar fine per pack will be imposed on anyone playing cards in Indiana under the Act for the Prevention of Gaming.

Drinks on the house are illegal.

Liquor stores may not sell milk. --- There are a lot of liquor stores in our area! So sad and crime is horrible maybe they should sell milk.

You can get out of paying for a dependent’s medical care by praying for him/her. --- Really? wow!

“Spiteful Gossip” and “talking behind a person’s back” are illegal. ----- That is a lot of arrests in one day!

One may not sniff glue. ----- And one shouldn't

One man may not back into a parking spot because it prevents police officers from seeing the license plate. ---- I see this all the time. Not enforced obviously.

All males 18 to 50 years old must work six days a year on public roads. ---- Must be a seriously old law!

Go ahead and take a look at your Dumb Laws and which one do you find the dumbest?
