take-your-wine-with-you-wine-purse-from-vivajennz

Have you ever wanted to sneak your wine in your purse? What about ever wanting to have a reservoir of water or juice in your purse? Vivajennz has you covered!

About Vivajennz

purseMy inspiration started from my two small highly spirited boys, Dayton and Lachlan. After many trips to parks, zoos, swimming pools, and soccer games,… I began to notice that they would become overly stimulated from the artificial dye in their drinks. The concept of a fun way to carry water and dye free juice was developed! I started making these purses as gifts for my girlfriends. As they began to carry these around more people continued to inquire about them.

When we aren’t with the kids, these made a great incognito way of carrying our favorite beverages. My husband and girlfriends were very motivating and encouraged me to start this business.

All my Vivajennz beverage purse styles are named after my girlfriends. They represent their individual fabulousness!

About Jennifer

Jennifer is a full time anesthesiologist.  She is married to Patrick with two small spirited boys, Dayton and Lachlan.

This mom-preneur started in her basement and is now in stores across the country and Canada.  Autism plays an important role in her life.  That’s why Vivajennz donates a portion of total sales to autism.

My Thoughts

First off, let me preface this by saying that my youngest son can drink all day: water, juice, coffee, pop, it doesn’t matter. He is always thirsty. Always.purse Having said that, this purse is perfect! With this purse I can take it with us on walks, or picnics. I can take it with us on long car rides. It can be filled with whatever drink you choose, not just wine. Yes, it is perfect for wine, too.

You can get different scarves to decorate the purse with, so that you can change the look for each outfit or occasion. Vivjennz also offered accessories, such as silicone wine glasses. They are sturdy enough to hold your drink, but flexible enough to fold for storage. She also offers different styles of purse, so there is something for everyone. The wine/drink spout is covered by a small flap that snaps closed. It’s completely hidden, and nobody ever has to know!

FryerIn operation the air fryer is only warm to touch. It does not heat up its surroundings. Regardless of the temperatures you live in, this portable air fryer will not make your home any warmer. So, you can cook all summer long even if there’s a heatwave.

It does all the thinking for you with its 7 preset settings. Additionally you can set the time and temperature settings to your own personal preference also. When the timer is done, the automatic shut-off stops the cooking cycle so you never overcook or burn your meal. Additionally, if you pull the basket out during operation it automatically shuts off and resumes once the basket is out back in.

My Thoughts

fryerI have been looking to upgrade my existing air fryers, and this was the perfect solution. It had just what I was looking for, so it made sense to snag it. I love that it is digital. The other air fryers I have are manual, with a turn knob. If I am busy doing other things while cooking, it’s harder to glance over and see how much time is left. This air fryer is also a lot larger than my others. It also has an accessory pack with it, to allow me to make more dishes, like the one I made when I first got it! I made a delicious chicken dish, with ingredients I already had in my refrigerator.  I had never made it before, and I was just winging it. It was simple and there were only 4 ingredients:

  1. boneless, skinless chicken breast
  2. enough bacon to sufficiently cover each breast (as little or as much as you want)
  3. ranch dressing (I used a bottled dressing)
  4. shredded cheese (any that you like)

fryerFirst, I laid out the breast, then I squirted some ranch dressing on the chicken breast. There is no right or wrong amount here, it’s however much to your taste. I then laid out the bacon onto the breasts, again as much or as little as you want.  At this point, I started cooking the chicken.  I put the temp at 350 degrees, and cooked it for around 12 minutes or so. After that time, you the put the shredded cheese on top. This can be whatever cheese and however much you like. I cooked for another 3-5 minutes, until the cheese was to my liking.

I fell in love with this chicken! It was moist, tender and extremely delicious! We paired it with some peas and broccoli for a very fulfilling meal. The air fryer really cooked it to perfection, and it was so easy. The controls are super easy, with it being push button. There is a plus to increase and a minus to decrease. I love that this air fryer has the accessory set with it, so I don’t have to spend additional money on it. It allows me to cook more things, such as brownies and pie. This is seriously the best thing for summer time cooking! You don’t have to worry about it heating up the kitchen and making it hotter in your house.

My Thoughts

I love this case! It has everything you need to do your makeup on the go. The shadows are all magnetic, as well as the brushes. The lip color andmakeup on the go mascara fit snugly into the case, so they aren’t going to move anywhere. You can use the other side of the case for your phone, money, etc. With three styles to choose from, and 2 different palette choices, there is something for everyone.

makeup on the goNow, let’s talk about color and pigmentation. This set has both. The colors are beautiful and you get good pigmentation, meaning the colors will show nicely. They also blend together easily, for that multi-layered look. The lip color goes on smooth, and looks great. I didn’t particularly love the mascara, but that was just me, not the mascara. I’m very picky with my mascara, and it has to work a certain way for me. This is good mascara, don’t get me wrong, it just isn’t for me. I should also mention that none of the makeup is waterproof. That isn’t a deal breaker, of course, because I don’t normally wear too much waterproof makeup. Overall, it’s a great set, and it’s definitely the perfect addition to my collection!

Tips for Smooth Mornings for Moms

By Aurora M.

 

For some people, the morning is bright and full of potential. For the rest of us, it’s the dreaded gauntlet that we have to run in order to get on with our lives. All too often, the people feeling bright and chipper in the morning are your children, who love to wake you up hours before you’re ready to start the day, (even though they also kept you up all night!) Whether you’re trying to get your children to church, school, daycare, or simply get them dressed and out the door… here are some tips to help the morning go smoother for the whole family.

 

The most important meal of the day

morningsWe’ve all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. When you have kids running around your feet, it can be easy to put off eating a for a few hours, just until they’ve settled down. You might tell yourself that you’re just waiting until the baby is ready for a nap. But in reality, you know you probably won’t actually get around to eating. Breakfast really is so important, because you need the energy to get through the day and chase your little ones around. If you don’t eat in the mornings, it’s likely that you’ll be cranky and short with your kids, meaning that no one will really have a good day.

For breakfast, make sure that you’re getting a balanced meal that includes protein. A bowl of cereal probably isn’t going to cut it and give you enough energy to last you until lunch. For an added boost of energy, try adding a cup of matcha to your daily routine. As this article argues, it will keep you energized longer than your regular cup of coffee, plus it burns more calories and has way more antioxidants per cup. Your energy is important, and you don’t want to let yourself get burned out in the first few hours of the day!

 

Implement healthy routines

This is true for both you AND your children. Your children will learn from example, and it’s important that they pick up healthy habits from you at anmornings early age. You can make it fun! Brush your teeth at the same time as all your kids (even before they have teeth!) and make a game to see who can brush their teeth longest, or who can gurgle their rinse water longer. Making sure that you eat WITH them is another important habit. They need to see that it’s important to eat three full meals every day. Bonus points if your meals are full of fruits and vegetables, so they won’t be afraid to try eating an array of different healthy foods.

 

Don’t give up on nap time

morningsWhile your little ones are growing so much, especially in the first few years, it’s important that they get lots of rest. They’re tiring themselves out so much during the day, running around and playing. Besides that, growing actually takes a lot of energy, which is why napping is so important for your littles. Utilize their nap time, and use this time to take a much needed break. Catch up on your favorite tv shows, read a book, or take a nap yourself if you need one.

Even as your children get older and begin resisting nap time, it’s still important for you to get that short break in the late mornings before lunch. So even if they aren’t going to take a nap, have them take an hour or two (however long nap time usually is) for “quiet time”. They should use this time to read books or quietly play by themselves, if they don’t want to nap. Sometimes, because they’re being peaceful and relatively still, they’ll end up taking a nap anyway, which is a double win for you!

 

Setting yourself up for success

Mornings can be hard, period. But this gets even harder if you’re carrying over anxiety and stress from the day before. If you do this day in and day out, you’ve caught yourself in a vicious cycle that may be incredibly difficult to get yourself out of. Some of the things that are the most helpful here are to eat a balanced breakfast, as mentioned earlier, and then a good night’s rest. Sometimes that’s just not possible, and that’s okay. It’s not always possible. If you have a free moment in the mornings, try to sit and collect your thoughts before you start the day. This article has some great ideas for confronting stress and anxiety in the mornings. Think about the ways you’ll succeed that day. Meditate. Project your positive thoughts. The more positive and successful you think you’ll be that day, the more positive and successful you’ll actually be.

shears

My Thoughts

These kitchen shears are almost magical! They cut very well, and never leave a rough edge. They are very strong, and you can tell they have been quality made. I love that they have multiple uses. You can use them to help open caps, such as on a bottle of juice. You can also use the built in bottle opener to pop caps off of glass bottles. They grip very well, and never slip while I’m using them. Another great feature is the cover that goes over the blades when not in use. This is a great safety feature, and will prevent many cuts, I’m sure.

raw-honey-nature-nates

If you love honey like I do, then you need to try Nature Nate’s raw honey! The flavor is fantastic!

About Nature Nate’s

Nathan Sheets got the nickname “Nature Nate” in college because he was a nature lover and outdoorsman.

honeyAfter graduating from college and owning his own ad agency, Nathan began serving in the ministry. He has journeyed on 100+ mission trips all over the world with the goal of helping others. He was also one of the driving forces behind the global “I Am Second” media campaign that highlights stories of hundreds of lives transformed through the grace of Jesus Christ.

In 2010, he decided to make honey his full-time endeavor. And life has never been sweeter. The success of Nature Nate’s has allowed him to continue to make a difference in other people’s lives – within the Nature Nate’s family and far beyond. For Nathan, it’s about using his successes to allow him to serve as many people as he can. As he likes to say, “The Lord has blessed us so we can be a blessing to others.”

Raw Honey

Nature Nate’s Raw & Unfiltered Honey is just as nature intended – 100% pure. We ensure this through rigorous testing for antibiotics, honeypesticides, herbicides and rice or corn syrup adulteration. We also test for a high pollen count and the origin of the pollens in the honey. Understanding the origins of the pollen allows us to know where the honey came from. This testing is done through third-party lab testing and in our in-house lab to ensure quality and consistency every time.

We are proud that Nature Nate’s honey is just like honey straight from the hive. We simply warm it and lightly strain out the bee parts and wax before we bottle it up.

Quality comes first at Nature Nate’s. It’s important to us to put a 100% pure product on your family’s table because that’s exactly what we would want for our own families.

My Thoughts

I never used to care for honey too much. As I got older, I decided that I like cooking with it. My favorite dish to prepare using Naturehoney Nate’s honey is my brown sugar and honey glazed carrots. They are super delicious, and there is never any left over after our meal! I use a 1lb bag of baby carrots, and they are gone in the blink of an eye. Nature Nate’s honey has a mellow, delicious flavor.  This is the only brand of honey that I’ve found that doesn’t trigger a migraine headache. I like to use it on my carrots, as well as on ham, and in dinner rolls. My son likes it spread on a bagel, as well as in his hot tea as a natural sweetener.

honeyNature Nate’s has products that would make great gifts! One product is the tin with a bottle of honey inside. This is so cute, and the tin can be used for something else once the honey is taken out. Another product that they sent me, that is awesome, is their individual honey packets. These are the best for slipping some into your bag when you will be gone throughout the day. This way, you can still enjoy your honey in your tea, or you can eat it plain for a little energizing pick-me-up!

keep-those-germs-at-bay-with-purell-backtoschool

Germs are everywhere. Let’s face it, we can’t avoid them. Purell keeps us safe from those germs!

About Purell

germsPURELL Hand Sanitizer was invented in 1988 by GOJO to meet the needs of healthcare providers and restaurants operators looking for ways to reduce the spread of germs. Healthcare workers needed to kill germs on their hands when they couldn’t get to soap and water. And restaurant operators needed extra germ-fighting protection to reduce the risk of food contamination.

PURELL Hand Sanitizer was a great success, not only because it was effective at killing 99.99% of most common germs, but because it was convenient, gentle and a pleasure to use. The dispensers and bottles could be placed anywhere, so hand hygiene was no longer restricted to the confines of a sink. And people enjoyed using PURELL Hand Sanitizer because it was refreshing and gentle.

Soon its popularity grew. People who used it at work also thought it would be great to use when they were at home or on the go.

In 1997, PURELL Hand Sanitizer was made available to consumers, forever changing the way the world stays well. It soon became America’s #1 hand sanitizer and a significant part of popular culture.

Today, PURELL Hand Sanitizer remains one of the most recognized brands in the world. It defines the hand sanitizer category and is the brand most preferred by doctors, professionals and consumers everywhere.

And now we’ve taken the next step and introduced PURELL Advanced Hand Sanitizer, the ultimate in germ-killing effectiveness.

My Thoughts

I don’t know about you, but germs are a permanent resident in my house. Imagine the germs in school? YIKES! Well, with Purell, you can germsbe safeguarded. Now, Purell isn’t able to 100% kill every germ, but it’s pretty darn close! They have bottles of sanitizer that you can sit around your house, or classroom.  For those on the go, they have small bottles with a holder, that attaches to backpacks, pocket books, etc. They even have sanitizer wipes that can be carried along on trips. They really do have you covered.

I personally like Purell because of my youngest son. He is autistic, and all of his life, he has a thing for Purell. I have no idea why, but this child will sanitize his hands all day long, but forget to wash them when necessary. So, I keep Purell on hand for those moments that we need them.

Purell has a pleasant scent to it. It’s not overly alcohol-y, and doesn’t burn like some of the cheaper brands do. There are different germsvarieties to choose from, too, as well as different styles. The wipes I put in our to-go bag in the trunk of my car. We take a lot of trips, and make lots of messes along the way. The Purell wipes are perfect for this. I usually have one of the small to-go bottles attached to my pocketbook at all times. This is an easy way to sanitize while out and about, or at school, etc. Overall, I’m very pleased with the Purell line, and we absolutely love them here in our home!

My Thoughts

 

I was very impressed when I received my glasses. I got two very different pair: one pair is wire frame with nose pads, while the other is a plastic frame. The wire frames fit perfectly, without needing any adjustments. The plastic frames, however, were pretty lopsided. This is easily remedied by using directions found on Youtube, or by visiting your local eye doctors for an adjustment.

The wire frames came with anti-glare and anti-scratch coating, to make them last longer. I ordered the plastic frames with the same options, but added the photochromic lenses. I like the photochromic option because I don’t have to worry about adding sunglass lenses over my frames. The photochromic lens works great, and changes easily in the light.

The frames are both very sturdy, and high quality, which I wasn’t expecting, to be honest. II figured that they would be cheap and flimsy, based on the price. Boy was I wrong! These are great glasses, and quality ones. They will last for quite a while, and unless my vision changes, I won’t need to replace them for a few years.

We clean our equipment thoroughly after product and flavor changes. Every Enjoy Life Foods employee understands the severity of food allergies and intolerance and takes careful precautions to protect our customers.

My Thoughts

I couldn’t wait to dig into these snacks when they arrived. They certainly didn’t look “healthy.” They looked delicious! I mean, come on, gluten freechocolate chip cookies are not a healthy food. But they can be. These cookies were different than others because they were dairy free, gluten free, and nut free. I know what you are going to say. That makes them taste free, too, right? Wrong!

My oldest son was eating the cookies, and he is the world’s pickiest eater. He says “These cookies are pretty good!” So, after he eats them, I tell him that they are healthy. He couldn’t believe it! He said that they didn’t taste like they were gluten free, dairy free or any thing else free.

The snack bars are amazing as well! They taste so delicious that you don’t even know they are gluten free! Let’s face it, most gluten free foods have either little flavor to them, or they taste gross. Enjoy Life foods has made sure that neither of those scenarios are the case! You can use their handy locator to find them in a store near you 🙂
