Canvas Shoes for Men by Lugz Review & Giveaway!

Links to this post
For my review of Lugz Canvas Shoes for Men, I chose the Berkely Sneaker for my husband. This canvas shoe is a super stylish low-top sneaker that is really light weight and includes two different color shoe laces. It's perfect for that casual, down time when my husband isn't working. He wears this comfortable shoe with shorts and even his Khaki pants. 

This canvas sneaker is available in several different color combinations, but I chose the Fleetwood/Chocolate/White combination, because it seems so neutral and versatile for the style of clothing my husband wears during his down time.

Lugz carries an awesome Canvas Collection, something for every man or teenage boy. As I was looking around the website, I even noticed that Lugz carries a few styles of shoe in larger, hard to find sizes. I love the shoes that Lugz sells and can't wait to get a few pair for my sons also.

HealthKeep ~ An Anonymous, trusted network for YOUR Health Issues.

When I was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer, it was a new experience for me. I had thyroid issues for years, but this was scary. I didn't know where to turn for answers to my questions. Of course, my doctor was there to answer some questions, but as he had never had Thyroid Cancer, how could he answer the more personal questions that were racing through my head? 

Now four years later, I'm dealing with Hypothyroidism, as a result of my thyroid being removed. This is a disease that has truly affected my life and my way of living. Anyone who suffers from Hypothyroidism or knows someone who does, can tell you that they are most likely full of questions.

I have found a place to reach out to my fellow Hypothyroid patients...HealthKeep. The forums are full of people in the same situation, with the same questions and concerns. It's so nice to be able to not only know that I'm not the only one who suffers from daily fatigue, but also that others are finding solutions to these daily symptoms. 

I love the fact that I can share new health experiences for myself or my loved ones, such as a new symptom, medication issues, diagnosis and that I get feedback from what others who have gone through the same thing have said. Another plus is that it's completely anonymous! 

I feel like I've found a home for all of my questions for not only myself, but also for my husband who suffers from Diabetes, my son who has been diagnosed with ADHD and even my mother who has Fibromyalgia.

Build-a-Sign ~ Vinyl Banner Review!!

Links to this post

When I had the opportunity to review a product from BuildASign, I was excited but a little confused as to which product to choose. To be honest, I'm a bit of a "hermit crab", so business cards would not be as effective as I would like, I don't own a business that I would need to promote, and I live so far out in the country that a yard sign would not be seen by anyone buy my family. So I had to think outside the box on this one.

I ultimately chose to review a vinyl banner and make it into a decoration for my boy's bedroom.

"Beauty Tips From Makeup Artists"

Links to this post
Women are always looking for ways to make their makeup look more natural, more beautiful, more noticeable—you name it. In this search for beauty, what is better than receiving beauty tips from reputable makeup artists? 

Gina Brooke has a list of celebrities she has personally made over a mile long, like Anne Hathaway, Katy Perry and Gwen Stefani. Now, she are shares a few of her secrets to give you some of the same red carpet treatment.   

  1. Skin that glows For skin that emanates a flawless finish, choose a sheer, nude, lip color and smooth it across the apples of your cheeks. This is a simple trick to obtaining lovely skin. 
  2. Eyebrows-stay put! For pesky eyebrows that refuse to stay put, place a small amount of hairspray on a brow brush, and comb it through your eyebrows, giving you smooth brows all day. 
  3. Soothe your scalp If your scalp tends to become dry, flaking easily, all you need is a lemon. Squeeze the lemon juice onto your scalp and let it sit for ten minutes. After rinsing, your scalp will be flake-free! 

These tips are just the beginning to an effortless, beautiful makeup regimen. Sometimes, it’s also nice to be pampered, and there are some amazing spas nationwide to do just that, from a New York City spa to a Los Angeles spa, or even a Miami spa.

Creating an online store like a PRO!

Links to this post
Companies are selling more every day with multiple e-commerce sites. It's a common branding strategy for modern businesses.

With multiple stores, you can sell all kinds of products and services. There are various ways to set up an online store. Some businesses opt for hiring an in-house web developer, but his costs time and money. In addition, you have to vet web developers and make them a part of your marketing team. It could be a much simpler alternative.

Businesses today are using 1ShoppingCart online store software. It offers a variety of features including a secure shopping cart and mobile commerce, which are essential for getting buyers and mobile shoppers to purchase from your site. However, that's not everything that goes into building a successful online brand.

SEO experts have stated over and over that today's most successful sites have an e-commerce site that they can share and build over time. With all of the sharing capabilities, thanks to social media, it's imperative that you sell products online and allow customers to pay you directly. 

Using a store builder is just one of the things that your marketing team can do to create a site, but you can also manage with marketing features and tools. For example, what are customers most interested in when shopping at your store lately? Marketing analytics software can offer you this kind of data for everyday promotions and specials.

20 Mule Team Borax Review & Giveaway!!

Links to this post

Have you tried 20 Mule Team Borax lately? If not, you don't know what you're missing!

Although I use a regular laundry detergent for my family's daily piles of laundry, Borax is just what I need for that extra "boost" sometimes. My husband works in the oilfield and comes home with the dirtiest, grimiest clothes I have ever seen. Sometimes they're so bad, that I hate to subject my washing machine to that task, but I know by using Borax in each load of laundry, his clothes will come out clean and fresh...just as fresh as our regular, every day clothing. 

Besides laundry I've used Borax for other things around the house. At one time I had 10 ( yes, 10!) kittens in my home. The Mama cat was an indoor/outdoor Cat so fleas were unavoidable, but because she was with the kittens so much, the flea problem got out of control. My Mom suggested I use Borax and sprinkle it on the carpet, let it sit for a couple of hours, then vacuum it up. I did this daily for a week and got control of the flea problem! 

To me that's amazing! I wasn't forced to use any harsh chemicals or sprays, so my family wasn't subjected to any unbearable odors at all and neither were our slew of kittens!

Overall, I love Borax and continue to find different uses for this wonder product!

To show appreciation for the awesome readers on this page, Purex Insiders and Missi Rose's Views would like to give three readers each 1 coupon for a FREE box of Borax! Simply complete the Rafflecopter form below...Good Luck!

Perfume doesn't need to be expensive to smell good!

Links to this post

The more expensive fragrance isn't necessarily better. In the 21st Century, more shoppers are coming to understand this, and it's beginning to change how the fragrance industry operates.

Once upon a time, expensive fragrances were considered inherently better. Perfumes were a sign of status, and the rare of expensive components in them were well-known and used as a justification of status of wealthy women. This is being moved away from as a standard now, however, and what is becoming more pertinent is how the fragrance actually smells.

Now, the only reason to purchase an expensive fragrance instead of, say, discount perfumes from is to show off and broadcast material wealth. This is only pertinent to people that will identify such fragrances as rich, though. Most individuals will simply find them too strong and pungent for their tastes.

At the same time, online shopping and decreased manufacturing costs have enabled a variety of more inexpensive and varied fragrances that many are learning to use as an element of personal style, much like clothing fashion. The ultimate result is that expensive, status-showing perfumes are being devalued in comparison to fragrances that some circles, expensive fragrances will actually have the opposite of the intended by making the wearer seem too decadent, while a more inexpensive sweet-smelling perfume to match a bright, seasonal outfit might have made them seem endearing. The times are changing, and modern fashion changes with them!

Orijen Freeze Dried Dog Treats Review!

Links to this post

 Our Dog Treats from!

In my household we have several pets, three cats and a new litter of kittens and two puppies...a male miniature Chihuahua and a female German Shepherd.

Not only is the food that we feed our pets important, but also the treats that we give them. There are tons of dog treats on the market, many of which are not appealing to my puppies. We've tried so many different products and trust me when I say, there are many that are never consumed.

Delicious morsels! 

Well, that was certainly not the case with the treats I received from I was sent the Alberta Wild Boar Dog Treats by Orijen. They were a huge hit! The dogs couldn't get enough and even my cats wanted in on the action. The aroma alone was enough to get all of my pets interested and wanting more. As much as we try to hand out the treats in moderation, I have to admit that these particular treats didn't last very long!

My husband and I agree that these Freeze Dried Dog Treats from Orijen are by far the best we have come across and plan to keep buying them for our furry friends!

Check out these and more from!

Hairstyles from Game of Thrones that ANYONE can do!

Links to this post

While it can become easy to get lost in a good book, it becomes a completely new experience when you have the opportunity to view that world in three dimensions. When it comes to adapting books into television or film, few have been so successful in recreating the characters and places we've imagined than Game of Thrones. The epic fantasy series has spared no expense in throwing us into George R.R. Martin's vibrant, fully-imagined world. Whether you love characters or love-to-hate them, many have been inspired to recreate their styles and costumes.

While you've probably seen some of the more elaborate projects out there (such as this epic Cosplay Piano music video), there are easier ways of paying tribute to the show. This infographic provided by Healthy Hair Plus shows just how easy it is to flaunt the hairstyles of the noble women of the show, which are elegant but simple enough to be worn any time of day or for any occasion!


Vinotemp 6 Bottle Thermoelectric Wine Cooler Review!

Links to this post
I've always wanted a wine cooler for my husband's Man-Cave...he likes to keep a few bottles of wine on hand and there is usually not much extra room in our refrigerator, nor do we have a wine cellar to store bottles of wine! 

I was sent a 6 Bottle Thermo-Electric Wine Cooler from Vinotemp for review and we are more than pleased with the product. It arrived in a huge box and was packaged so that there was no possibility of being damaged in transit. That's a big plus, because there's nothing more disappointing then receiving a package and seeing damaged contents when it's opened.

My 6-Bottle Wine Cooler!
We immediately set up the wine cooler in the Man-Cave, and since it is Vinotemp's most compact table top wine cooler, it doesn't take up too much space, but is the perfect size for this room. The wine cooler is super noise or vibrations at all, which is a huge plus. In this room, there's always something going games, movies or music, so there's no room for extra noise that could interfere with this fun-room!

Vinotemp sells a wide variety of wine coolers and other wine related accessories, from the wine connoisseur to wine dabbler or Mommy who needs that glass of wine after a long day with the kids. Vinotemp offers everything from inexpensive counter-top coolers to exotic commercial wood cabinets found at many hotels and restaurants nationwide. Basically Vinotemp wants to give customers countless options, so there is no reason to shop anywhere else for wine storage needs.

My Stay at the Holiday Inn Express ~ Marshall, Texas!!

Links to this post

Last month I took a trip to East Texas for my nephew’s High School Graduation. The trip from my house to Marshall, Texas would take approximately five hours and I was traveling with all four of my children, ages 4-19! Getting to the graduation ceremony, being held at East Texas Baptist University that evening, was certainly a struggle and a very long drive, but we made it!

At Graduation!
Thanks to Holiday Inn Express, of Marshall, we were provided with a complimentary room for our weekend stay. 
Holiday Inn Express Marshall, Texas
This was with out a doubt, a god-send...My sister was expecting a fairly large turn-out for the graduation and graduation party, so staying at her house was probably not the best idea for my crew.

Upon arrival to the Holiday Inn Express, we were greeted by the desk clerk, registered and given access to our room very quickly.  The room was very tastefully decorated, exceptionally clean and ready for us to relax in comfort before preparing to attend the graduation ceremony.

Enjoying the room!
Getting ready for graduation!
The hotel provided a complimentary breakfast every morning and it was awesome! My kids and I were very pleased with the food variety, taste, quality and quantity available of each item. There was an attendant available during the allotted breakfast time for anything that we may have needed and there was plenty of space to sit down and enjoy the meal in comfort. My kids chose to take their breakfast back to the room so that they could watch television and eat in their pajamas.

Breakfast/Lounge Area
Not only did the hotel provide complimentary necessities such as shampoo, toothbrush, razor, etc...but also hosted a mini-store for countless other items that guests may want. There was even ice cream! What a nice amenity to include so that guest don't feel the need to travel outside of the hotel for snacks and other convenient items.
Awesome BBQ Area
The pool was so clean and refreshing!
The pool was definitely a hit for us! The temperature was just right, there were plenty of lounge chairs and tables available and even a small BBQ area which would have been a great place to relax and hang out if our time had allowed for it. There were other accessible amenities such as a Fitness Room, guest laundry area and Business Center for guest convenience.

All in all, this hotel experience was delightful. I could not have asked for anything more from The Holiday Inn Express in Marshall. Our stay was short but incredibly comfortable. My family and I would certainly choose to stay here again in the future.
