Unicorn Candy Candle

As you all know I LOVE Goose Creek Candles.  They have some fantastic scents and the candles last forever.  I love that each season they have a whole new line of candles for me to enjoy.  This spring they came out with one that is going to be a perfect Easter basket present for the girl in your life Unicorn Candy.

This has a very sweet candy scent and the candle its self is so cute.  I love anything Unicorn but this is was perfect.  I love that this jar is also very cute so when the candle is gone I am going to use it to store some office supplies.

Goose Creek has a wide range of scents, they have large candles, melts, tea lite candles and more.  The prices are fantastic and they wed site is so easy to use.

They also have fantastic sales you will not want to miss out on.  There is nothing better then coming home after a long day lighting a fantastic smelling candle and chilling out for a little mental break.

Water The Coolest Drink Around

With Easter coming up I love to add books into his basket.  I love reading and I want to pass this love onto my son.  If you can read you can go and learn anything in this world.  Water The Coolest Drink Around is a perfect book for my little guy.

One thing I love is that this book is cute and helps teach my son something.  This book is all about how water is good for you and points out that our favorite animals don’t drink sugary drinks so why should we.  Each page also ends with a question so your kids can answer and learn.

The illustrations are cute and the story is the perfect length.  As we all know sometimes when it comes to bed time stories, we want to read to our little ones but we are so tired.  This one is the perfect length for those nights.  I can still read to him but it won’t take an hour.

We truly enjoyed this Water The Coolest Drink Around.  I would recommend it to everyone.

How long should it take to stop bleeding after birth?

Picture Credit

Vaginal bleeding and discharge after birth (known as lochia) is completely normal and should not generally be a cause for alarm. This is true whether you have a vaginal birth or a caesarean section as this is how the body gets rid of the blood and tissue from the womb that was needed during pregnancy.

 

This bleeding will normally be heaviest in the first few days after you give birth and then should decrease significantly after the first 10 days or so. Light bleeding may continue for up to around 6 weeks after birth.

 

If you continue to bleed heavily after the first few days, it may be a sign of a birth complications. Similarly, if you are bleeding very heavily, either immediately after birth or during the first 12 weeks following birth it may be a sign of postpartum haemorrhage, which affects around 1 in 20 new mothers. Postpartum haemorrhage is very serious and can result in death if not treated promptly.

 

Passing more than a pint of blood in the first 24 hours after giving birth should be seen as a danger sign for serious health complications, as should a large number of blood clots in the blood you are passing.

 

If you believe you may be bleeding abnormally after giving birth, you should seek immediate medical advice to make sure you get the right treatment as soon as possible where necessary.

 

What causes excessive bleeding after birth?

 

The most common cause of postpartum haemorrhage is a condition known as ‘uterine atony’. This is where the uterus does not contact as strongly as it normally should after delivery, which is essential to stop bleeding from the site where the placenta was attached to the lining of the womb. This can then lead to continuous bleeding from the womb lining, resulting in postpartum haemorrhage.

 

Other potential causes of worse than normal bleeding after birth include:

 

  • Uterine rupture (where the uterus tears during birth)
  • Vaginal tearing
  • Cervical tearing
  • Complications from a caesarean section

 

Excessive bleeding after birth may be the result of unavoidable complications during your child’s birth, but it could also be an indication that you have been the victim of a birth injury caused by medical negligence on the part of the team handling the birth.

 

What to do if you have suffered an injury while giving birth

 

If you were injured while giving birth due to negligence on the part of a doctor, midwife or other medical staff, you may be entitled to claim compensation. This can be used to pay for medical treatment and counselling, replace lost income, compensate you for your pain and suffering, as well as covering other financial and non-financial consequences of your injury.

 

Claiming compensation for a birth injury to a mother can be high complicated, however, so it is important to have the right legal advice and support from the outset. This can ensure all the right evidence is collected and that your case is built and presented in the right way to give you best chance of securing fair compensation.

Starting a business takes focus

Picture Credit

  A lot of people think all you need to start a business is a good idea.  Having a unique idea is always a plus but it takes so much more to have a successful business.  I know a lot of people who thought that is all it would take.  One-million-dollar idea and they were going to be rich.  I hear a lot from other people I am tired of making money for other people.  What some people don’t see is the time and love other people put into those businesses before they got there.

  If you want to start a successful business you need drive and be willing to put all your time and effort into it.  When I started people would tell me that I was spending too much time on something that was not paying me.  I would put in 14-16 hrs. a day.  Wake up at night and do more work.  Because that what it takes.   I don’t think I slept for about 2 years.lol   With all these hours you will also have to find a way to fit your family in.  You don’t want to loose them along the way.

  The hope it to of course make money and get to a point where you don’t have to put so many hours in.  To be honest after you put that many hours in you will never really have another day where you are not thinking about the business.  Even on vacation I am always checking e-mail returning calls putting up post.  There is no end, and you want to love your business so much that you are always thinking of it.

  One you know you are willing to put in the time and effort to have your own business look at getting advice.  Finding a consultant can make a huge difference a lot of people ask what is consulting? and how can they help me?  Trust me they have a lot more information then you do and can help.

  Starting your own business can be the happiest day of your life.  The best thing to remember is to take it step by step.  Don’t just jump in one day quite your full-time job and say this is it.  Start some notes decide what it is you will actually be doing and know you are not going to get rich the day you start your business its going to take time and effort.

  If you decide to make it a hobby job or full time make some detailed lists and know what you are going to need not only for the business but for you.  Most of all make sure it is something you are passionate about.  If this is your life long dream make sure it is what you truly want to do for the rest of your life.

  I am excited to see what you all do in the future and make sure you come back and share your tips and tricks for how you made your business successful.

What To Consider When Planning For Retirement

Picture Credit

While retirement can be a very exciting milestone to look forward to, it can also bring a lot of anxiety and unknowns to the forefront. There are a few important specifics and details you’re going to want to think about and work through as you plan for retirement.

The more prepared you are for these future years, the less stressed out you’ll be and more likely it is that you’ll enjoy your time off more. In addition, don’t be afraid to consult with the experts in these particular areas if you’re feeling lost or confused as you work through the logistics of it all.

Where You’ll Live

A major decision you’ll need to make as you plan for retirement is deciding where you’re going to live. For instance, you may be considering gifting your home to one of your kids and moving states to someplace warmer or into a retirement community. Before you proceed, take the time to read up on how to transfer ownership of a house with a mortgage and see if it’s possible and what’s all involved. You might want a home or condo that’s easier to care for and will be practical for getting around in as you age. Discuss it over with your spouse and brainstorm some ideas before you commit to any location or property in particular.

How You’ll Spend Your Time

Another aspect to consider as you plan for retirement is figuring out how you’re going to spend your time. You’ll have an open schedule once you depart from your job and a lot of freedom you may not be used to having. It’s important to take care of your health and wellbeing and keep up some sort of physical activity and find ways to challenge your mind. Furthermore, continuing to get daily or weekly social interaction will be important for you as you age. You may want to think about joining clubs or organizations so you can continue to interact with and meet new people even though you’re retired.

Your Finances

Consider your finances and financial future as you plan for retirement if you want to feel more secure as you approach the days ahead. This is where consulting with a financial planner might be in your best interest so you can come up with a plan regarding your money and investments. You want to make sure you feel safe and secure for years to come and don’t have to worry about paying off debt, bills, and healthcare when you no longer have a regular paycheck coming in. Set yourself up for success by preparing in advance and making sure you’re comfortable with how you’ll tackle your expenses and continue to live comfortably from day to day.

Conclusion

You should now feel more prepared to enter retirement and less apprehensive about the future. Take advantage of this advice as you plan for retirement and come up with a plan of action for how you’ll proceed into this next stage of your life. Enjoy your free time and the opportunity to go about your days without having to punch a clock.

HAiRDORaBLeS PETS

Have you heard of HairDorables?  They are one of the hottest toys out right now from Just Play.  If you are already collecting all the HairDorables then you are going to want to start your pet collection.  This week was the New York Toy Fair and HairDorables were right these with their cute pets.

I love that the case its self opens up so you get to find your surprise toys and when fully opened makes a play area for your pet.   Each pet comes wit different accessories and a brush.  My cute little kitty also came with a mouse.  My son is in love with mice right now so he was so excited to get the mouse. lol

It has three compartments to open up once you open it.  Right now they are on series one so if you are going to start collecting make sure to start now.  I always hate when I collect something and miss out on the first season.  Each of these pets also come with cute colorful bouncy hair that you can brush.

I got Twirling Tango and I love her.  They have quite a few to collect some are the signature look and a few ultra rare.  If you have a little one like me who loves pets then the HairDorables Pets is a must.   They are cute and original.  I love my new friend.

I got my HairDorables Pet free in exchange for an honest review.
