Have you been to the Woodlands? #WestinInTheWoodlands #TheWoodlands

Links to this post
There are so many wonderful places to visit in Texas and the area in and around Houston is filled to the rim with things to do, places to see and beautiful scenery. 

I recently spent another amazing weekend in The Woodlands at The Westin Hotel and as I fully expected, my visit was a great success! The Westin Hotel is immaculately decorated with the most stunning and unique works of art. I spent a couple of hours just walking around the property looking at the artwork. One thing that always catches my eye is the collection of large crystals across from the elevators on the first floor. I love crystals so this spectacular array of beautiful gems is a definite favorite spot for me.

My Mother has had pain due to Fibromyalgia for many years so when I had the opportunity to review and try out the Active Edge Bracelet I was more than interested.

As a matter of fact, anyone that feels body aches, joint pain, inflammation, arthirits and other types of pain is the perfect candidate for this wearable technology. According to the testimonies on the website many have reported a decrease in pain and an improvement to the quality of life after using the Active Edge Bracelet. I can verify that the results are real because my Mother has been wearing one of the bracelets for a few months and although her pain is not completely gone, it has lessened immensely. She is very satisfied and happy with the results and loves her bracelet and aside from helping with her health issue, it looks great on her!

Shit Happens ~ Card Game for Adults!

Links to this post
If you love real life games, cool board games and are intrigued by inappropriate, politically incorrect things, then SHIT HAPPENS is perfect for you!

Shit happens to everyone, right? Of course it does! Crazy and embarrassing things happen to me all of the time and I find it better to laugh about it rather than get upset and have it ruin my day. This game takes a look at some of the worst things that could happen to anyone of us at any given time...for instance:

  • Being attacked by a swarm of bees
  • Seeing your Father naked
  • Dropping your phone in the toilet
  • Being buried alive
  • A rattlesnake biting your genitals
  • Wet to bed every night

As you can see, none of these situations are ideal but some are definitely worse than others. Each card is ranked (by experts) from 1 to 100 and it's up to each player to put ten cards in the correct order. If the misery index agrees with your ranking then you get to keep the card. Correctly rank all 10 cards and you WIN! 

This card game is great for groups at parties or any other gathering and I can't wait for our big family vacation this summer...SHIT HAPPENS will definitely be invited!

SHIT HAPPENS is available on Amazon and at other retailers! Enjoy!

Disclosure: I received the above product for review, however, all opinions are entirely my own.

For The Love Of #Books!

Links to this post

That feeling when you find a meaning book is fantastic. You close the last page and take a deep breath, trying to capture the way it made you feel. Nothing beats it. Or does it? The beautiful thing about books is the sharing, right? When you’ve found that fantastic read, all you want to do is talk to someone about it. When you don’t know anyone who’s read it, the feeling can be frustrating. You have to keep those emotions quiet because you don’t want to spoil it for anyone else. The best way to tackle that frustration is to spread the love. Unless you’re an avid re-reader, there’s no point keeping books you’ve finished. That’s why it makes sense to find a way to pass them on. And, the best part? You can often earn money while you do it! Here are some of the best ways to spread the reading love, and gain while you do it.

In fact, trips to dentists and all your essential supplies can cost the earth. Therefore, here are some ways you can take care of your oral health without breaking the bank.

The Happiness Perspective: Seeing Your Life Differently ~ Book Review

Links to this post

Happiness is really a state of mind...I truly believe that and this new book from Diane Wing was exactly what I needed when I received the book in the mail.

I've read several other books written by Diane Wing and each one seems to speak directly to me each time. Her style of writing and outlook on life in general is so optimistic that no matter how I'm feeling at the moment, as soon as I sit down to start reading something just "clicks" and I feel as if she's written certain words and passages just for me! 

The Happiness Perspective: Seeing Your Life Differently is about self-examination and recognizing that we control our own happiness by our thoughts, actions and the way we react to certain situations and circumstances. Instead of being the victim of life, we can turn that around and merely be happy if we so choose! Amazing, isn't it? 

It took me quite awhile to get in this frame of mind and I've slide backwards a few times, but I never lose site of what I want and that's happiness. If that's what you truly seek as well, then reading this book is a step in the right direction. Diane provides life changing techniques, methods and direction that is easily incorporated into your daily life. By simply transforming a thought process, habits and behaviors anyone can achieve not only happiness within themselves but also peace of mind too. A few of the process discussed in the book include:

  • Turning regular household chores into meditiation activities
  • Reducing the noise in your environment so you can better focus
  • Saying no in effective ways that don't make you feel guilty
  • Knowing who you truly are rather than trying to be everything to everyone else (My favorite!)
  • Learning to do less and appreciate more
  • Cleansing your thoughts to remove negativity and ground yourself
I would recommend this book to anyone...yes anyone! Even if you feel that you are at the happiest place in your life, there is so much to learn from Diane. This is a book that I will keep on my nightstand and read through and reference many, many times. Thank you Diane for enlightening me and teaching me once again! 

About the Author:
Diane Wing, M.A. is an author, teacher, personal transformation guide,a nd intuitive consultant. She has a Master's degree in clinical psychology and has been providing valuable insights for the highest good of her clients for almost 30 years.

The Ultimate Guide To Creating A Shared Kid's Bedroom!

Links to this post
Creating a shared children’s bedroom can be difficult, especially if you’re short on space. Even if you’re not short on space, this can be a tricky task for even the most DIY savvy individual. This guide is the ultimate guide to helping you create a shared kid’s bedroom, so you’ll be able to put something awesome together in no time.

Play It Safe With All White Furniture And A Pop Of Color
If you’re trying to think of a design that will work for both kids, you can play it safe with all white furniture and a pop of color. This sort of look works whatever the sex of the children, whether they are two girls, two boys, or one of each. This is a durable room theme that can last for years, as it’s impossible for the kids to outgrow it. This can be a neutral but fun way to decorate the room, as it’s really simple to add color and fun with bed clothes and accessories.

Invest In Bunk Beds So There’s More Room For Activities
Instead of having two separate beds, it could be a good idea to invest in bunk beds. Bunk beds leave way more room for activities for both children, so if they love to play together, this is a great idea. If the room is limited on space, bunk beds are usually the best option. However, remember that they don’t need to be facing the same way. You can create a fun, individual look by looking at bunk beds where the beds face opposite directions!
