This is a sponsored post from Tatu Digital Media written by me. All opinions are 100% my own.

     Do you buy gift cards for Holidays or Special Occasions? I am going to let you in on an insider tip. This has been something I have been doing for the past several years. I like you am sure that you find it very easy to just give a gift card as a gift for the Holidays or any Special Occasion but there is a better way to do this where you can “double dip” as it is called and gain more of the rewards when you buy your gift cards at Kroger Grocery Stores.

gift-certificate

     Let’s assume you have your Holiday Gift list. Before you buy that gift, Buy a gift card to the store from Kroger grocery stores and you get fuel rewards plus an extra bonus for buying the gift card. You can also pair up a gift card with a gift such as you give a iTunes gift card with new headphones or a Regal Entertainment gift card with a Brinker Restaurants gift card for a great night on the town. It takes a little of thinking out of the box to do this but it is so worth it. Gift cards are great gifts for teachers, neighbor, out of town guest. Now is the perfect time to stock up on gift cards. Now through 8/9 earn 4X fuel points on hundreds of gift cards! Earn points, miles or cash back by using your favorite rewards credit cards when you buy gift cards everyday. Now, here’s the math:

  • $6 in fuel rewards on a 15 gallon tank ($.40 x 15) +
  • $6 back if you earn 6% cash back on credit card grocery purchases = $12 in savings on a $100 gift card!

The Benefits of Switching to Epilating

Show Some Love- Sharing Is Caring!Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Pin on PinterestShare on StumbleUponShare on LinkedInEmail this to someone

The Benefits of Switching to Epilating

If you’re tired of having to shave almost every time you have a shower, it might be time to consider switching to using an epilator. Similar to waxing, epilation means that your hairs will be pulled out from the root, leaving a nice and smooth finish that lasts longer than simply shaving the hairs off with a razor. With salon waxing prices on the rise and hair growing back before you’ve even gotten out of the shower, it’s time to learn about the many benefits of switching to using an epilator. pic

It’s Cheaper

Using an epilator can work out to be much cheaper than going for regular professional waxing, and can even work out to be cheaper than shaving regularly with a disposable razor in the long run. Waxing can be an expensive procedure if you want to ensure that the end results are good, however, when you buy an epilator you pay a one-off price for a machine that’ll produce much the same results as a salon wax. If you choose a good epilator that can last you many years, depending on how many packets of disposable razors you buy per year, you could end up saving money that way too! See this epilator buying guide for more information on making the right choice.

Better Results

The thing about shaving is that it doesn’t pull the hairs right out – it just shaves them down to the roots. This is why shaved hair grows back faster than hair which has been removed by waxing. Epilation results tend to last for around three to six weeks, depending on your rate of hair growth. This means that you’ll have longer to go in between hair removal sessions with silky smooth skin, less chance of irritated skin, shaving rash and other shaving-related problems, and less worrying about hair regrowth.

Convenience

Another of the main reasons why more and more women are opting to purchase an epilator over waxing or shaving is that they are very convenient. If you’ve ever been in a situation before where you really need your legs to be smooth and soft but you can’t get a waxing appointment for a few days or even a week, you’ll know how frustrating it can be. Or, perhaps you plan to shave your legs, only to find once you’ve gotten in the shower that you’ve ran out of razors. The best thing about an epilator is that there’s no need to book an appointment and they don’t run out – simply plug it in and you’re ready to go! This makes it really handy – whether you’ve got an out of the blue date coming up and plan to wear a dress or are going on holiday and want to make sure that your bikini line is tidy the whole way through.

With so many different hair removal methods available, why choose epilating? Not only is it easy, it can also be more affordable, more convenient, and also has some of the best and longest-lasting results.

Join the “Shop With Your Heart” initiative from the ASPCA

Show Some Love- Sharing Is Caring!Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Pin on PinterestShare on StumbleUponShare on LinkedInEmail this to someone

The ASPCA has launched an exciting new initiative to improve the lives of farm animals called Shop With Your Heart.

d7c952da-2c21-4e66-bddd-e683015e1446

As many of you know, I am such a huge pet advocate. I beleive and stress that there is nothing more important than the welfare of our animals. I am so very happy to introduce you to this new initiative from the ASPCA.

You may already know, most of the nearly 9 billion animals raised for meat, milk and eggs in the US are suffering in inhumane factory farms. And animals are not the only affected, as factory farms impact human health—they can be breeding grounds for dangerous pathogens and the antibiotics used to prevent disease create the potential for dangerous, drug-resistant bacteria to develop. To fully harness the power of our collective purchases and demand better lives for farm animals, the Shop With Your Heart initiative gives consumers the resources to recognize, locate and demand meaningfully welfare-certified meat, eggs and dairy products as well as plant-based alternatives.

Here are a few ways you can get involved:

  • Share the Shop With Your Heart initiative and video with your readers and fans, asking them to make the pledge to be a more welfare-conscious shopper: aspca.org/shopwithyourheart. Everyone who signs the pledge also gains access to an exclusive Shop With Your Heart Grocery List, including welfare-certified and widely available plant-based brands. We’ve also created these graphics for social media sharing.
  • Post a photo of yourself on your social media channels making the “heart hands” to show solidarity with the movement with sample language like:  “Join the movement with me and pledge to #ShopWithYourHeart! aspca.org/ShopWithYourHeart @ASPCA.”

I received the below complimentary product for the purpose of this review. All opinions are 100% my own.

     Do you own a condenser for such things as whole house air? I never ever thought I would be owning a house let alone have whole house air. Those window air conditioning units did the job well enough but left much to the imagination. Now that I have whole house air, You have to think of more than just having it. You have to think of how to keep it working like how to manage the condenser in the winter.

resize_f0209827bffdcc64e476beb2a572e364ce7678c4688b934157d300830824f07ca5438933256256

     I bought a square cover as that is what we have but they do sell round ones as well. Here are a few features about the cover:

  • Keeps rain, snow and leaves out of vents in off-season.Made of heavy duty polyester with Vinly coating.Double stitched seams, air vent system design.One year limited warranty

Model A: Fit round air conditioners 34″ in diameter x 30″ high
Model B:

  •  Fit square air conditioners 34″ long x 34″ wide x 30″ high

     How awesome is that to have a one year warranty? This was the perfect addition to keeping our products in check and working properly. Also having an expert check it out before you start using it is a pretty good idea too.

Do you cover your air conditioner in the winter?

This post is sponsored by Poise® but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

     Do you tend to leak a little? This is a subject that I thought I would never ever have to blog about but the fact is that I do leak a little when I cough, sneeze, laugh, run, jog, walk….. well for most activities I would say.  I used to think that Light Bladder Leakage was just something that happened to older people but I could not be more wrong. Light Bladder Leakage is something that can happen to most everyone. Sometimes it is a medical issue that causes this but most times there is not a medical reason for this. Age can play a factor but sometimes things just happen. I have a lot of friends who leak but that is because they have had children or their bladder muscles have gotten weak.

1024px-Sams_Club.svg

       This is nothing to feel embarrassed about. This is a topic that will affect more females then men but will effect most of us in our life time. One thing I have found out is that it helps to talk to people who experience this issue. Talk to people who have this issue not only to make yourself feel better but also they are a great resource on what and where to get to the items that will help you. I found that Poise®  pads/liners work the best for my issues and by buying those supplies at Sam’s Club, I save the most money. I also find that I save the most money on most things at Sam’s Club. You would be surprise at how much you save when you buy in bulk. There are 2 people in my in-laws household and I thought they crazy when they got a Sam’s Club membership but I could not been more wrong. They buy everything in bulk from toothpaste, soap, denture items, dish washing tablets, laundry stuff and much more. I was very surprise at just how much they saved by shopping at Sam’s Club. Have you ever thought of getting a membership to Sam’s Club?

     Poise has helped me to live life to the fullest. I am now not afraid to go out with friends and laugh the night away or go to the amusement park and scream my head off. With my Sam’s Club Membership I can saved a ton of money when I buy poise products at Sam’s Club. I love just how thin the Poise® liners are. I do not even know I am wearing them.

Healthy Eating Advice for Effective Weight Loss

Show Some Love- Sharing Is Caring!Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Pin on PinterestShare on StumbleUponShare on LinkedInEmail this to someone

Healthy Eating Advice for Effective Weight Loss

Obesity is an epidemic in the United States. Many people need to lose large amounts of weight and have no idea how to go about doing it. There are many schools of thought on this particular issue. However, the secret to losing weight begins with the food that you put into your body. It will not matter how much exercising you are doing if you are eating all of the wrong foods. The problem is that millions of people have no clue about what foods will optimize their dieting and help them to reach their weight loss goals. Here are some of the best tips that will assist you in making smart decisions when it comes to eating healthy during your diet.

1. Talk to a nutritionist

A nutritionist is a person who has gone to school and received a degree in nutrition or health. This would be an ideal person for you to talk to before you start a diet. You can talk to the nutritionist about what you are currently eating on a regular basis and how much weight you want to lose. He or she can then create a diet for you that is based on your specific nutritional needs. Some people hurt themselves during a diet because they deprive their bodies of vitamins and minerals that their bodies need to function effectively. A nutritionist can make sure that the food you are eating every day during your diet will provide you with all of the nutrition your body will require to stay healthy and avoid illness.

2. Eat vegetables

Most people were told by their parents that eating veggies is good for them. However, many of these people still avoid veggies as much as they can because they don’t think they taste particularly good. The taste of veggies is definitely an issue that many people can’t seem to get around. However, it is critical that you understand just how essential vegetables are to your overall health. Studies have shown that people who eat vegetables on a daily basis are able to avoid many of the health problems and illnesses that people who do not eat veggies frequently suffer from. Many tasty recipes that include vegetables are offered by HamptonCreek.

3. Carbs are not bad

You may have read a lot of articles that tell you to avoid carbs at all costs. However, carbs are not necessarily a bad thing. Eating a certain amount of rice and bread can actually give your body a boost of energy that it needs to exercise or do some other physical task. However, it is important to consume everything in moderation. Carbs will not have a negative impact on your weight loss as long as you closely monitor how much of them that you eat every day.

4. Drink lots of water

This is good advice for all people. However, it is especially important for you to drink a lot of water every day if you are trying to lose weight. Keeping yourself hydrated will make your body work more efficiently while you are exercising. It will also improve your body’s digestive process.

5. Do not eat fried foods

Fried foods will definitely put on the pounds. It is true that eating the occasional fried food item will not sabotage your diet too badly. However, you should really stay away from anything that is fried until you have reached your personal weight loss goal. Then you can treat yourself by eating a few things that you have been depriving yourself of. It is all a matter of having some willpower.

My Day at #Pittsburgh’s Kennywood Amusement Park #Review @Kenny_Kangaroo

Show Some Love- Sharing Is Caring!Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Pin on PinterestShare on StumbleUponShare on LinkedInEmail this to someone

I received complimentary tickets for the purpose of this review. All opinions are 100% my own.

     Can you say that you literally have an amusement park in your back yard? I can say that I was lucky enough to have this. I could walk out my yard and look down the street and see the park. It was not until I was older that I realized just how lucky I was. Kennywood Amusement Park will always hold a special place in my and my families heart as that is where my Mom met my Dad. My Mom and I both worked at the same concession stand- Not at the same time of course and where my church always had their summer picnics- Russian Day.

DEFAULT_KENNYWOOD

     As I enter the park a feeling of excitement comes over me. Whether it was because of all the memories the park holds for me or that I am about to ride my favorite rides or even all of my favorite foods that are just a fingertip away, I am sure to do it it all! I mean the Noah’s Ark squishy tongue that I member from days of long ago is BACK! Yes, Just what I said because they restored it back to the way it was with even the squishy tongue. The awesome roller coasters are still the same from my favorite-the Thunderbolt, The Racer, The Steel Phantom to the Jack rabbit and even a few more. I love them all! From the Merry-Go-Round to the Train. Then you have to mention kiddy land and the other more normal, thriller, exiting wonderful rides such as the Turtle, Barron’s Curve, Music Express and The Pirate and many more. I was thrilled to see the the wonderful potato patch fries are sold at a few other concession stands throughout the park. The lines could could really get way too long when they were only sold at the original potato path stand. My sister-in-law and brother-in-law to my surprise bought us lunch at Johnny Rockets. Which I must say I had the best Cheeseburger I have ever had. Thank you Lisa and Drew!

10 Things Cat Lovers Need To Do This Summer #PawtyPeople #Evite #Bethere #ad & #Pet Photo Contest

Show Some Love- Sharing Is Caring!Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Pin on PinterestShare on StumbleUponShare on LinkedInEmail this to someone

This is a sponsored post written by me on be half of Evite Influencer Program. All opinions are 100% my own.

Capture

A lot of my friends think I am a different kind of Pet Parent in that my cats listen to me. Yes, I said they listen to me.  My cats are house cats in that mt nerves would be shot if they were outside and I would be wondering are they getting hit by a car or in a fight with another cat or dog or even a coyote. This is the major reason my cats are house cats  but that does not leave them wanting for anything. I have made a list of 10 things you need to do this Summer with your cats.

10 things you need to do this Summer with your cats~

  1. Get your cat that overdue checkup that is so very important to maintaining and make sure that he/she is healthy.
  2. Take your cat outside to enjoy the sunshine and Summer weather. I take mine out for 10 minutes in the morning and 10 minutes in the evening.
  3. Give your cat catnip. I have never laughed so hard just watching my cats after they consumed catnip.
  4. Have a play date. Yes, I said a play date. You would not beleive it but there are several small dogs that live next to and near to us. My cats have taken a liking to them. We actually do have play dates where they play outside and get rid of some pent up energy.
  5. Make some home made from scratch cat food. Summer is the time for herbs and fresh veggies. This makes the perfect base for cat food.
  6. Throw a pet themed party. Evite.com has just come out with a pet themed line of invitations, gifting options, notifications and more.
  7. Adopt a new fur baby. This is the perfect time to head to your local shelter and adopt an older pet or just some that has been up for adoption. All of our pets are rescue pets. The joy they bring us is un-measurable.
  8. Set up an obstacle course. Not an obstacle course for people but for cats. Set up batting toys for them to play with. Set up balls for them to play with. Also you could set up higher levels for your cats to jump on as they love that.
  9. Make a pillow pad for a window for your cats to lay in and soak up the Summer sun.
  10. This last idea is not necessarily a goal to do with your cats but rather the right thing to do. Give to your local animal humane society. Be it cash or give kitty litter, toys or other cat accessories.

MIU COLOR Water Bottle #Review

Show Some Love- Sharing Is Caring!Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Pin on PinterestShare on StumbleUponShare on LinkedInEmail this to someone

I received the below mentioned complimentary product for the purpose of this review. All opinions are 100% my own.

     Do you take a cold drink with you whether it be in the car, while riding your bike or just even taking a run? I never ever thought I would do this but that was until I was diagnosed with several diagnoses where I needed to stay hydrated. This was why I was thrilled when the opportunity can about to review the MIU COLOR water bottle.13428355_630725873757483_8450534213386379883_n

     We always take a reusable water bottle with us and have many of them in my kitchen cabinets but the MIU COLOR water bottle is like non other that I own. I was very impressed with the sleek design of the bottle and that it came with it’s own sponge cleaning bottle brush.

Some things I want to share with out about the MIU COLOR water bottle are:

MIU COLOR is based on the theme of slow life, simple, environmentally friendly, comfortable daily necessities for consumers everywhere, focusing on the development and extension of the day-to-day supplies, products ranging from home, office, travel, to clothing

MIU COLOR BOTTLE- A Choice for Drinking, A Surprise for Life
MIU COLOR Glass Water Bottle make your drink just tough glass and stainless steel, No BPA, PVC, Plastic, Lead and toxic chemical. More healthy than you think.

Note:
•All of MIU COLOR Glass Water Bottle are handmade, so it is normal if the bottles have a little different.
•There is Odor?
You could take out the rubber ring from the cap, and soak it in vinegar or tea water for 2-3 hours, then wash it clean. The odor will go away.

     I never knew that about what to do if there is an odor after so many uses.

Stressed out Then You Need #Pittsburgh @Sandcastlepgh Lazy River #Review

Show Some Love- Sharing Is Caring!Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Pin on PinterestShare on StumbleUponShare on LinkedInEmail this to someone

I received complimentary tickets for the purpose of this review. All opinions are 100% my own.

     Are you feeling stressed out? In the world we live in, Sometimes we just need a day of fun and sun. Like Sandcastle Water Park in Pittsburgh PA. Who would have ever thought that in a major city there would be a place like this? Sandcastle Water Park located along side of the Monongahela River is the home of 15 water slides, a wave pool, a mushroom pool, the lazy river and 2 children areas along side a boardwalk.

12105899_10156141934870444_3322704589471305046_n

     Sandcastle Water Park has something for everyone. Young and old, They have the attraction for you. Kelsey- You will see in the pictures below is in college and works a full time intern job as well as a part time job and needed this day to just relax and let her stress float away as she and friends cruise around the lazy river. They also did all of the slides but that took minutes where the lazy river occupied hours of their time.

     They had so much fun! The boys had a blast and kept out of trouble which I must say is a plus that the park offered enough of the attractions to keep them busy. If you have a free day or just want to something fun with the family, I highly recommend the Sandcastle Water Park.

World Health Organization on Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity

Show Some Love- Sharing Is Caring!Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Pin on PinterestShare on StumbleUponShare on LinkedInEmail this to someone

According to the World Health Organization(WHO), people with unexplained, recurring dizziness, headaches, and skin irritation might be suffering from electromagnetic hypersensitivity(EHS).People with this condition feel sick when they are around sources of electromagnetic waves.

Recently, the Daily Mirror ran a story of a 15-year-old teenage girl in the U.K who committed suicide because of the severe discomfort she felt in school because of what is suspected to be EHS. The teen’s mother said that her daughter had suffered from an allergy to Wi-Fi signals before her death. She felt extremely nauseated by the Wi-Fi signal in her school and was unable to concentrate.

Research shows that most people claiming to be suffering from EHS experienced symptoms such as fatigue and headache that occurred when they were close to devices that emit electromagnetic signals. These signals include computer screens, cell phones, and Wi-Fi stations. The symptoms often disappear or become less severe as they move away from the devices emitting electromagnetic signals. However, research findings indicate that participants who were unknowingly exposed to EHS signals did not show any reactions.

What about the symptoms?
Experts say that people who claim to have EHS are definitely ill, but electromagnetic waves are not the cause of the sickness. Even though the WHO states that people suffering from EHS display ‘various non-specific symptoms’, it also state that EHS is not a scientific diagnosis. According to the WHO websites, there is no clear link between EHS symptoms and exposure to electromagnetic waves.

EHS symptoms often vary between patients and are not usually helpful in linking to the trigger. This makes it more difficult for doctors to diagnose and treat the symptoms.

Determining disability
Patients also report that the EHS symptoms make them physically weak and drastically change their lives. According to courthousenews.com, parents of a 12-year-old boy in Massachusetts suspect that their child has EHS. According to the parents, a new industrial capacity Wi-Fi system in the son’s school was the cause of his health issues. The boy suffered from the same symptoms that other EHS victims have reported to experience. The symptoms arose only during school hours and doctors could not diagnose the boy’s condition. Although the school administration rejected the parent’s claim, the boy’s parents still hold on to their assertion that their son was affected by the Wi-Fi system and that that the school was responsible.

Testing reactions
A 2009 medical journal reported that more than 1000 people in the U.S. believed they were suffering from EHS. However, little research has been done to prove the existence of EHS. Many professionals in the medical field believe that what many people allege to be the symptoms of EHS could just be their bodies’ reaction to various environmental factors that are not related to electromagnetic waves.
