I am so excited to show you a delicious way to keep your family healthy!

I am so grateful that Sambucol® offers a variety of ways to take elderberry! As a mom to a child with special needs, I am well aware he will not take many over-the-counter medicines or even prescription medication. When it comes to his vitamins, we have always had him take gummy vitamins! They taste great and they are like candy to him.

Beating The Dog Days Of Summer

Beating The Dog Days Of Summer
Beauty Brite Disclosure

What’s that old saying? It’s the dog days of Summer! I’m a dog person plain and simple. Growing up I remember us always having a dog, and as soon as I moved out on my own. It’s a memory I wanted my children to share also. So let’s talk about some of my favorite pup products and how they will help you in beat those dog days of summer!

Recently our beloved dog Twinkie passed at the old age of 12, I got her when I was 18 and she was one of the most amazing dogs ever. When she passed at the end of 2019 my children were heartbroken. I wasn’t really ready to get another dog just yet but my children started asking for another puppy and in May of 2020 our sweet Arthas was born. We just recently brought him home and couldn’t be more excited to have paws in the family again. Arthas will actually start training to be an emotional support pup for my 6-year-old Ansley who has several anxiety disorders.

Beating The Dog Days Of Summer!

What do you need when you have a new pup? New toys for him to love! Now with Pupcycle, you can have them shipped right to your front door. Pupcycle is the first Eco-Friendly dog toy box with fun goodies that your pup is sure to be over the moon for. What is my favorite thing about this box ( well it actually comes in a 100% recyclable bag )? It’s that there is no monthly subscription! This is what has turned me off on so many other dog boxes it because it’s another added expense each month but with Pupcycle you order when YOU want.

So what comes inside the bag? Arthas’ favorite toy is the plushie by far. Perfect for tiny chewing teeth. We also got a hide a treat toy, and a squeaky toy, both of which he’s growing into. Help the planet, and help your pup have fun and get your very one Pupcycle box, and be sure to check out their website, Facebook, and Instagram for more information!

Bug be gone.

With Summer and with getting a dog that means you are outside a lot more. Being outside brings those dreaded fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes. We live close to a wooded area so we get all kinds of creepy crawlies. Don’t worry because Wondercide can take care of those pests. These amazing products kill on contact and keep them at bay. It’s a great choice because it’s safe to use around pets and your family.

Wondercide

My favorite items that came in my Wondercide package was the Scent Sampler Flea & Tick Pack. This sample comes with four different scents to make sure you love the product you pick for your pack! My favorite scent is the Lemongrass Spray With a clean crisp smell it leaves your home refreshed while keeping those fleas and ticks away. It’s proven to start working in just 2 minutes.

Not only is this product safe for pets but it’s safe for home and use for your family. Great for outdoor play for your little ones, made with all-natural ingredients, I don’t have to worry about chemical contact with my kids. Are you interested in getting your very own Wondercide products? Be sure to visit their Website, Facebook, and Instagram.

Seeing the joy that our new pup has brought to my kid’s lives is something that every parent is thankful for. Since getting Arthas my children have that little part of their lives back that they were missing when Twinkie passed away. I hope that you love these pet-friendly products from Pupcycle and Wondercide as much as our family does, and helps beat those dog days of summer!

Boost Your Fitness With Resistance

Back in February, I saw an ad on Facebook for a squat machine. Right away it caught my eye because it looked silly, but when I took a closer look, I realized I could really use it in my home! I bought it on a whim within 20 minutes of seeing the ad. I opted not to get the resistance bands, weighted belt, and any other accessories. I figured I could worry about that once I got the machine and found alternatives. Let’s look at how you can boost your fitness with resistance, especially when stuck in quarantine.

At the time I purchased my squat machine, I had no idea our schools would close just a few weeks later and then we were forced to stay home! It’s crazy to look back at how much our world has changed in the last few months. I am thankful I bought the machine as it is helping me to stay on track with my health and fitness.

Workout, Replenish, Repeat!

Beauty Brite Disclosure

It is safe to say that I am the queen of yo-yo dieting & failing to stick to a workout routine. I have tried all the fad diets and weight loss pills with minimal success and no real long lasting results. Now that 40 is right around the corner, and I dont have the greatest health, I needed to take myself seriously and start holding myself accountable.

The last 6 months I have changed much of what I eat and increased my physical activity. I began to keep it very simple with wholesome foods and used simple equipment to help make working out enjoyable. 42 pounds later (YAY!) I am ready to find my strength with weight training, and I couldn’t be more excited.

No one enjoys breathing in your own stale air or the amount of sweat that’s accumulated under your face mask. Not to mention what your plans are for all the stock piled face masks when the world finally reaches a safer social climate.

Many states, (like mine), still have a mandated mask requirement; so wearing a face mask has become a part of our daily routine. Over the past few months I have worn just about every type of face mask. By far our family’s FAVORITE has to be the tubular style bandannas from Hoo-Rag!
