Squishmallows

squishmallows

OMG, I knew these Squishmallows were cute when I saw them, I had no idea we would all be fighting over them. They are some of the cutest squishy animals you will ever see.  I love that they had a wide range of sizes and animals all which were adorable and ready to come to my home.

squishmallows

When they showed up my dogs were the first to go nuts.  Of course, they are 7-month-old puppies so I keep them away, I though they just wanted to eat them like everything else.  But of course, when they were on my bed Thor got ahold of Piper and when I came in he was cuddling. He used her as a pillow all night long lol.

My son when for Gary he loves giraffes and he could not stay away from this squishy cutie.  He is a size bigger than Piper so he makes a perfect human pillow. Too

I was in love with Lola she is cute and I love Unicorns.  She was also a fantastic pillow and the outside is so soft she is very relaxing to pet.

squishmallows

When shopping this year make sure to pick up a few Squishmallows character’s they are cute and your family are going to love them.  For Christmas eve we always do a small present for the family like P. Js and a book.  This year I think we are going to add Squishmallows for some cuddly fun for all of us while we wait for Santa.

How to Get Skin That’s So Smooth

Image source

 

There are so many things that can affect your skin. Stress, aging, the sun, pollution, and dehydration will all cause dryness, wrinkles, and blemishes.  Older women that have been through the menopause are also prone to an overall loss of smoothness to their skin. It may not be possible to get your skin a smooth as a baby’s, but there are things you can do to help.

Improve Your Diet To Improve Your Skin

Skipping sugary treats will help to fight the loss of collagen in your skin, as well as helping with many other health conditions.  Eating fish twice a week can help to smooth the skin all over your body, and drinking plenty of water to keep it hydrated will help too. Add some berries to your diet for the extra vitamins, as many of them have the ones you need to keep your skin looking its best. Nuts and whole can also have beneficial effects on your skin.

Get Enough Sleep

It is said that you can sleep your way to beautiful smooth skin. You should try to have 7 to 8 hours every night if you want your skin to repair itself while you are asleep. Sleep is your body’s way of dealing with the mental and physical stresses you have put it through, and a lack of it will affect all aspects of your well being.

When your mind and body are not properly rested, it is much easier to become anxious and stressed. Stress can produce extra lines on your face, which is what you are trying to avoid.

Exercise Plenty

If you have a busy lifestyle you may be thinking that you do not have time to go to a gym a few times a week. That is not the only way to exercise though, as you can change a few things in your life to fit some extra exercise in. Instead of using an elevator, for example, use the stairs. You could get off the bus or train one stop earlier and walk a little further to work. You could go for a walk in your lunch hour or take the dog a walk each evening, if you have one of course. Is walking is not a favorite thing to do, consider taking up dancing or some other form of exercise.

Just like with your diet and sleeping patterns, having enough exercise has other health benefits as well as being very good for your skin.

 

Getting Rid Of Wrinkles And Fine Lines

Wrinkles and fine lines have a habit of creeping up on us and before we know it there are plenty of them. There are ways of getting rid of such things as smokers lines from your top lip and crows feet from around your eyes. Keeping your skin moisturized will help and one of the finest things for this is coconut oil. As well as reducing the appearance of these wrinkles and lines, it has properties that will help to fight infections and reduce the appearance of blemishes.

You could buy expensive creams to do this, but coconut oil massaged into your skin every night will do the job perfectly.

Exfoliating once a week can also help, as this will get rid of any dead skin cells and the fresher new ones from underneath will be what you see. Some beauticians will advise that other than your face, you could exfoliate the rest of you 2 or 3 times a week.

Avoid being in the sun without a sunscreen as well. The suns rays can dry out your skin making the likelihood of wrinkles worse, as well as be a cause of skin cancer.

Remove Makeup With A Gentle Cleanser

Although washing your face may make you feel cleaner it can also cause overproduction of oils if you do it too often. You are better to use a gentle cleanser, which will also remover any makeup you have been wearing. Follow that with a toner to remove anything that was left behind, and then moisturize.

You should not forget to clean your lips either. Use a little warm water and a soft toothbrush to gently clean away any dead skins cells, which can make your lips, become sore and cracked.

Don’t forget to clean your makeup brushes too. They can easily collect germs while they are sitting about and these could be the cause of infection on your face.

Hands And Feet

Externally, hands and feet get more use than any other part of the body. They are not always treated well as people try to totter around in stilettoes, or just wear shoes that are too tight, just because they are fashionable. Feet are prone to get a rough deal from us, but they should be given some extra care, and so should our hands.

Our hands can be plunged in and out of water all day and they can be used for numerous tasks that do not do them any good.

These extremities both need to be looked after. Moisturizing creams that contain shea butter, coconut oil, and vitamins A, C, and, E will help them to stay soft and more comfortable. After all, our feet support us and enable us to move around and our hands let us pick things up, such as food among other things. They deserve to be cared for.

Other Skin Treatments

If you have the time, the money, and the inclination there are plenty of skin treatments around.  You could try microdermabrasion, dermabrasion, laser skin resurfacing, or maybe a chemical peel treatment. These work by toning and tightening your skin while minimizing the effects of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines, and blemishes. They are all a different process that tackles the problems, but they will have similar effects in that they will make your skin as smooth as it is ever likely to be.

You may be able to avoid these though by starting to care for yourself and your skin in ways that will make you both healthier and looking better for it.

LiL gadgets Headphones

LiL Gadgets Headphones

When it comes to headphones for kids there are a lot out there.  For us we are a little more picky then most.  We don’t want to spend an arm and leg but they have to work great.  My little guy is Autistic and has sensory issues so they have to be good.  At the same time, he is also still a kid so I am not going to be spending $100’s on a pair just for them to be lost or broken. LiL Gadgets Headphones is a perfect solution.

Lil Gadgets Headphones has a few different ones to choose from depending on your child’s age.  We got the Connect +Pro in green.  They come in 5 different colors and they are only $27.00 that is a fantastic price for such a good product.  You can connect these headphones so you can share the sound with two different pairs which is perfect if you have 2 kids watching the same show.  They fold down so you can pack them up easily. They also have a passive noise reduction.

I love that when they made Lil Gadgets Headphones they really did keep the kids in mind.  They keep them at a fantastic price point, made a ton of awesome colors and the quality was fantastic.  My son only had one suggestion he would like them to make a pair in red lol.

If you are looking for a great pair of headphones this holiday season make sure to check out Lil Gadgets Headphones.  They are a great value for your little one.

LUGZ

LUGZ

I know most of you have heard about Lugz, they are work boots, right?  Nope not right they are so much more they have come into the world of style and fashion and I am in love.  They are great work boots which means they are actually comfortable but they are also cute.

I can wear these all-day long hiking and working out in the field and just change a few pieces of my outfit and they are a great accent piece to my outfit.

When I saw that they had pink I went nuts.  As you all know I love pink everything what makes me love them even more they look cute and I can wear them all day long.

If you are wondering about the fit.  I am normally either a 6.5 or 7.  I ordered a 7 because they are boots.  With thin socks they are a little big.  With my thicker socks they fit perfectly.  They did not rub my ankles with either socks and the bottoms were very grippy.  I did not slip even when the puppies got the tile floor wet.

LUGZ

Now I have to say that walking with the puppies in the morning has become so hard.  The grass/weeds are frozen so when I wear regular shoes my feet get wet.  I am miserable when my feet are wet.  With the LUGZ I do not have this problem.

“Our water-resistant footwear utilizes a water-resistant coating on the upper, helping to keep your feet dry in light rain and weather conditions.”

LUGZ

It really does work my feet are warm and dry as a bone on my walks now.  They are also slip resistant and have a great memory foam inside.

When thinking about what boots would be the best this winter make sure to check out LUGZ they are comfortable and look great.  They have the normal colors and a few different styles so no matter what you love you are sure to find them here.

Speck For The Holidays

Speck

Did you know one of the main gifts for the season is new electronics?  Did you know that after the first of the year most of those electronics are already getting repaired?  One thing people forget about when giving electronics is to also give protective cases with them.  They got a new phone or a new tablet and it really does them no good when they drop it once and it is not broken.

Speck

When thinking about the protective case think quality.  Speck has fantastic quality and they are cute as can be.  Speck really is the number one cases out there and they truly make a difference.  I had my last phone for a few years and my son had it most of the time.  We never had to get it repaired we always had a speck case on it.  coincidence I think not.

Speck

I have been a fan of Speck for year and even when we go buy something new they always suggest Speck first.  When you are picking up that new phone or tablet this year make sure to check out the Speck selection too.  If you prefer online shopping no problem just head here.
