Get Everything You Need and Compare It To What You Have at Best Buy

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. 

Are you shopping for a new device? Something that can do everything that you need whether it is work or play or both. In my line of work I depend on several devices to "get the job done". I need a camera, a cell phone for calls and contacts , and my laptop or my desktop depending on if I am on location or home. I would love to be able to take all of that and put it into one mobile device.

I have heard so many good things about the Samsung Galaxy Note7 that makes me want it SO BAD!

So going down through the list of features, one that I love is the "Don't Worry About Getting It Wet". I am a blogger, I'm a mom, I'm a realist. I am always on the go. I have dropped a device in the cat water dish, in a huge puddle at the parade, in soup, and in the toilet. Yes, don't ask, it does happen. 

My devices didn't survive those accidents.  It gets expensive losing phones like that. Especially when I depend on it so much. I have to be able to be mobile. My routine depends on it. We have 4 kids in 3 different schools, my husband has doctors' that we have to be accessible to all the time since the amputation. Then I have my work. 

I am working with 20+ companies at any given moment and am constantly looking for new clients and partners to make connections with. I have a full amazing life and I enjoy it. I need a device that will keep up with me and allow for my clumsiness. The Samsung Galaxy Note7 can do that! 

The next feature I love so much is the camera. With a fast autofocus and a lens that lets in 95% more light than the Note5.3 the Galaxy Note7’s camera takes sharp photos and videos when you’re on the move and in the dark. I am constantly taking pictures. Life is moving so fast and I want to be able to capture everything. 

Something that I need so much is a camera that can take all pictures in one device so I don't have to switch it up. Sometimes, I miss the perfect shots because I am digging for my camera. I know you know how much that sucks. 

The fast power-up is a great feature. I charge my phone at night while I'm sleeping. That way I can wake up to a fully charged device. I still have to charge a few times a day. No exaggeration, I drain the battery at east twice to a flashing red before I plug it in for the night. 

The fast power station is really awesome. It goes so much faster than just the standard charging by wire. It's easy to set up too. I love the user-friendliness of this product. 

The S Pen is just mind blowing to me. The demonstration showed how to use the most intelligent S Pen ever. Did you know that you can tap a word and find out the translation? That is just so cool! You can save your notes on top of your screen, I really am excited about this. The s pen and the Samsung Galaxy Note7 are water resistant. 

Can you imagine the ease of use on this? The safety features are great too. This device offers iris scan. it's such awesome technology. Locking a folder has never been so secure. 

Best buy has a Mobile Plan and Compare Tool to help find the best plan for you and if you are over paying for what you currently have. About 50% of people overpay on their cell phone bill.  You can go into your local Best Buy and see what they can do to help you save. Are you in that 50% of people paying too much?

You Should Know These Facts to Buy Cosmetics Online

The trend of buying online is increasing day by day. Especially us women! We love to buy everything online and a very popular one of those things is cosmetics. What if without spending money on your vehicle gas, you can buy the desired cosmetic? Yeah, it feels very cosy and it comes with many benefits.
Online cosmetics stores are full with more items than you can physically find on cosmetic stores shelves. So many brands are selling products online that you can really pick and choose with quality and variety. There are some facts about safe cosmetics that you should consider before buying any cosmetics online. Let’s talk about that.


If you are one of those who are brand conscious, then you may get yourself in trouble. Almost every cosmetic brand has their online store and you should keep this fact in mind that you are buying from a real brand store. Some random online shopping stores offer you some deals and send replica product that can be harmful to your skin. Always go for the real stores and buy from them. Real stores also offer different deals especially seasonal deals. So, keep your eyes open while purchasing branded cosmetics.

Cosmetics Chemical Composition

Every user knows that the chemical category of cosmetics is different, but do you know in depth that about those chemicals? For examples, in many deodorants, they use Aluminium Chlorhydrate which is well known for skin irritant. Without knowing what you are going to buy can be very harmful to you especially when you buy it from a random store. Similarly, the chemical composition of cosmetics can be a cause of permanent scars on your skins. Try to avoid this kind of stuff while you can.

Coupons and Deals

The topic of interest is here. Deals, coupons, and promo codes attract many girls and ladies. They use these coupons to shop more and more. The idea of coupons is to save money, but if you watch it as a businessman, then you will understand the theory behind it.
People attract towards deals and coupons without thinking that they are buying what they do not need to. Whatever it is, you also have to make sure that the coupons you get are for real products not some fake sites with duplicate branded cosmetics. For example, if you are in Canada, then you can use these Sephora promotion codes to save money and to get original product.  

Delivery and Shipment

Sometimes while we are adding products to cart, we forget an enormous figure of shipment. Some online shopping stores charge a huge amount for delivering especially if you are out of the region. Select your products carefully and check prices before you pay. Some stores have different options of shipments, so you can select whatever method suits you.

Try to use these facts when you are buying cosmetics from online stores. Many of the new online users do not care for anything, but they should have. Everything matters in online shopping and you should take care of that.

Awesome Outdoor Strand Lighting #G40Blubs

What do you use for outdoor party lighting? We have an awesome porch that we love to entertain on. We have a pool table back there. We just had it all screened in and added a ceiling fan to cool it down out there. 

You would not believe how much more still the air is inside a screen porch. Just by adding the fan, it cooled it down so much. 

We have really cute strand lights out there. We were going to go around the corners with the lights and get a light for the center of the room. We like the strand lights so much we got enough to go across all of the main lines. 

Like I already said, we love the lights. We want them to be a permanent light source out there so we were happy to review a box of G40 Bulbs for the replacements. The couldn't have come at a better time. We broke 3 bulbs between getting the strands set and installing the ceiling fan. 

One thing I was very impressed by is that we can't see a difference between the original strand lights and the replacements. These bulbs are a very clear light. They do warm up so be careful if you touch them. 

These bulbs are really nice. They are easy to screw in and easy to remove. There is no wiggle room or flickering in the bulb.

Rest Better and Easier with Dr. Olivia Naturals #drolivianaturals

Hi Guys. First I want to say thanks so much for cheering us along on getting and staying healthy. We have consistently tried to find  new ways to help us achieve our goals. 

Recently Aron was prescribed more supplements and a list of OTC supplements he needs. His levels are all screwy and he needs help getting them back in order. We had the opportunity to work with an amazing company on a review of Magnesium Glycinate Complex with L-Theanine, Passionflower & Valerian Root. We gladly accepted.

This covers the magnesium that he needs and also has a few other ingredients that will help him all the way around. The one I recognised first after the magnesium was the Valerian Root root. 

After my surgery, I went through a long period of anxiety with sleeplessness. My father in law got me the valerian root to help me ease back into life pretty much. I was helped so much by that.  

With Aron's recent surgery, this is what I thought would help him the most. To rest better and to feel less stressed and just dealing with it all pretty much. He did great with the surgery but, learning how to cope with the changes since then, has been a challenge. 

Valerian is a herb, (more specifically the root part of the herb). It smells like sweaty socks. Of the more than two hundred known species of valerian, the Eurasian variety, namely, V. Officinalis is generally used for medicinal purposes and to relieve anxiety, depression, and poor sleep.

Passion flower has been used to treat sleep disorders and historically in homeopathic medicine to treat pain, insomnia related to neurasthenia or hysteria, and nervous exhaustion. 

These are awesome ingredients to help get the body back on track and be more comfortable. These are easily digestible and doesn't cause tummy upset.

4 Awesome ways to Decorate Glass Bulbs

I know we are in mid summer but it's never too early to plan for Christmas. What kind of decorations do you like? Do you like to make your own decorations or buy designer?

We like all kinds. I want to show you a really cool set of glass bulbs that make great crafting ideas. I have had so many ideas to do with them I am going to show you a few of them. 

The hole at the top is big enough to funnel in some pretty cool stuff and the top is strong enough to hold it in place or you could always glue the top on if you think the weight is too much. Either way, these are very pretty bulbs.

Glitter is always a great way to go because it is shiny and catches light. One idea I had was to squeeze in some clear glue and swirl the ball around so the glue goes around on the inside. Then pour in some glitter and shake. After that, pour out the excess. 

Filling them with confetti or shredded colored paper is a great idea too. It's very light weight and adds so much character to the decorations. One plus with the paper is that it can be changed if you decide to change your color scheme next year. 

Sand would be a fun way to add color but that is a heavier material and I would not recommend hanging it on the tree. Instead, setting it on a display or something like that would be better. 
Tinsel is another cool filler and a lot less messy if you are having helping hands with the projects.

What are your awesome ideas for decorating these beautiful glass bulbs?
