Go big this Valentine's Day with Tiny Prints

The month of January doesn't lend itself  much in the way of holiday decorations. My house has snowflakes and snowmen here and there. Snow has not graced us with it's presence as of yet. I am ready to put the winter decorations away. Perhaps if I lived in an area of great amounts of snowfall, cold temperatures and where wool sweaters are a must I'd be more apt to enjoy the winter decorations. Temperature readings of 40 degree Fahrenheit just don't feel like winter.  Stores are stocking up with Spring clothing, garden supplies, and brighter colored everything. Before we head into the season of Spring, there is Valentine's Day.  This is the  first big holiday after Christmas that is celebrated in giving and receiving. A dozen red roses, a heart shaped box of chocolates, and the cute, sentimental, even mushy Valentine' s Day card. School children will sign Valentine's day cards and pass out to their school mates, Maybe there is a shoe box turned into a mailbox

Keep Lice away with Fairy Tales Hair Care Natural products

A few years ago there was an outbreak of lice in the girls school. Not just one case, but several cases. And on top of that, it seemed like the origin of the lice was not being treated adequately.  Had I known about Fairy Tales Rosemary Repel® at that time,  I would have seriously encouraged parents to use this product.  Find Fairy Tales Hair Care  all natural, organic hair products  for you and your family. Fortunately my children were not affected that year, but those that were dealing with numerous treatments of  harsh chemicals would have surly appreciated a Natural Organic way to combat those little lice creatures. If you have school age children, even day care age Fairy Tales Rosemary Repel is a way to prevent those pesky lice from attaching to kids hair.  some of the facts about Lice: The majority of reported lice cases are in children age 3-11 Lice infects people regardless of social status or personal hygiene.  Lice like clean hair because it is easier for them to attach to c

Finding Nemo Returns in 3D!

  FINDING NEMO returns to theatres for the first time in 3D September 14th, 2012!         Academy Award®-winning Best Animated Feature “Finding Nemo” returns to the big screen for the first time ever in thrilling Disney Digital 3D™.

Decorate your house this Spring with style from Hipcycle

There is something good and green to be said about re-using items we all have around our house. Make do, use it up, or up-cycle those things that are too good to drop in the trash bin. I remember making a few  pencil holders out of the frozen orange juice concentrate containers. Simple, but useful. The growing trend in green living and design is just what is happening with Hipcycle . They are dedicated to selling innovative, stylish, and affordable upclycle products. Launched in October 2011, Hipcycle is taking something that would have otherwise been thrown in tho the trash bin and transforming it into something of greater use and value. “Our goal is to bring the marketplace for upcycled products closer to the mainstream consumer,” said Andrew Sell, Founder and Chief Hipcycler. “Rather than only targeting people who are highly environmentally conscious, we want to reach the broader population.

Make your way to McDonald's tomorrow for the NEW Happy Meal

This morning I headed South to a McDonald's ®  location in Absecon, New Jersey. Nice place. Really nice place. It's sunny, it's clean, it's full of friendly employees, hard working  staff, it's busy, and the food is great.   The three hour tour, for bloggers, began with meeting a warm hearted, dedicated owner, a hard working manager, and two lovely ladies working on PR for the company. The bloggers were served a cup of  warm, full of fruit oatmeal. This was my first try of McDonald's  oatmeal. It is good. Sure to fill you up, and good for a cold morning. The group then learned about the company from the owner of this McDonald's, who happens to own several other locations. She is truly dedicated to the care and quality of her restaurants. You can see it in the restaurant, the employees, and customers. The Manager of this location, also a hardworking person, gave us a behind the counter tour. The kitchen is clean and set up for efficiency. We even got to go in

Purex Complete Crystals and Jockey Tech Terry Performance Sports bra giveaway. Yep, that's two giveaways!

Soccer shin guards are probably not the best thing to put in the washing machine, but I have, many times. From the sweat and grime of the soccer field the aroma is not pleasant. The shin guards are lined dried missing the dryer sheet fragrance. Not so good. Purex® Crystals fabric softener are free of oils and can be used on all types of laundry. Sleep wear, towels, athletic wear, and the entire families laundry. Purex crystals are added to the wash cycle in the beginning of the first setting. I have tried Tropical Splash and Mountain Spring, the blue and yellow bottle. The Mountain Spring is my favorite. The fragrance lasts days after the wash, and even makes my laundry room smell fresh!  This is Good. If you find yourself doing more laundry in this month of resolutions and healthy trends of  wearing your athletic wear, Purex Crystals are great for moisture wicking fabrics such as work out clothing. Jockey® has introduced the 2012 Tech Terry Performance Sports Bra with a 20% off coup

Tide for COLDWATER, say it's so!

that's the sunshine on the towel There is a pile of laundry somewhere in my house, all the time. I could wash all day, walk upstairs and find another heap of laundry. I give up, I am defeated by the dirty clothes. This is a photo of my Christmas Tree skirt, towels, shirts, and more towels. Why in the world would I be washing the tree skirt? It's  been claimed by our cat for the month of December as his blanket under the tree. To pack it away for the year I best wash it, don't you think? I have been washing all our clothes in cold water for years. One day long ago I just decided to use cold water, all the time. Back in the day of powdered laundry detergent I would find clumps of undissolved powder in the washing machine drum. Thanks to all the laundry detergent makers, liquid laundry soap began to find it's place on more and more store shelves. P&G recently introduced Tide® laundry soap just for cold water use. Cool,  I'll buy that. Why use Tide ®  For COLDWATER:

Farm Fresh food at the Pennsylvania Farm Show

On Sunday we went to the 2012 Pennsylvania Farm Show in Harrisburg. I have been to the Farm Show many times- as a school child, with my family, and in my college days I worked there over Semester Breaks. Those cold January Mornings my sister and I would wake up about 4 AM to drive over to the Farm Show. We would work all day-by all day I mean from the time the building opened for the Farmers to the time the building closed. It was a long day, everyday for a week. Pay Day was the best. At the end of the week we all got an envelope of cash-our payment for the week. Money to take back to college. This year I was not working, not on a school field trip. I was an adult. I could get there when I wanted, leave when I wanted. We arrived at 9:45 AM. We parked across the street since the lots were full. Parking is $10, the shuttle bus is free, and admission to the show is Free. A shuttle bus took us to the farm show building.  After the few hour car ride we hit the bathrooms first. The bathroom

Purex Ultra Packs are a toss in the wash

Remember those big jugs of soap we used to lug home from the store?  The  bottles were heavy and hard to pour out the exact quantity of liquid to add to the washing machine. It would leak down the side after we put the cap back on, then the design changed. Bottles became more compact, drip free, made out of recycled material, and are  recyclable.  The formula is concentrated, meaning less water in the bottle and not as heavy to carry and use.   But wait, it gets even better for those of us that attend to the wash!  Next month you will be able to purchase a new kind of laundry detergent.   Purex® UltraPacks™  will be available in stores. Purex® UltraPacks™  are Triple Action liquid detergent formula in a pre-dosed pack. No need to measure, no heavy bottle, no spill, leaks, or drips. Take one out of the bag and toss it into the washing machine. Done. What I like about Purex ® UltraPacks ™ : It's easy to put in my shopping cart, not heavy, not bulky. Less waste. pre-measured packs. n
