Giveaway Sadie and Rose GLO-Up doll set

 

 

This is by far my absolute favorite doll line. The GLO-Up Girls fashion doll line builds on the massive cultural phenomenon of #GlowUp – a hashtag with more than 40 billion video views on TikTok. The dolls offer a full “Glo-Up” experience including spa, nails, hair, makeup and fashion play, and even a real beauty mask for the girl! The dolls retail at approximately $19.99 USD each. The fashion doll line was a Toy of the Year Award nominee in the Doll category and is currently sold at Target stores. At the time of this post, the dolls are on sale for $14.99!

I received my two favorite GLO-UP GIRLS to review and must admit I’m thrilled beyond words. 

 

Meet Sadie.  She has the most awesome hair on the planet! Sadie is a kind hearted girl who loves to give.  She is warm hearted and empathetic. She wants to create social harmony and sees the best (GLO) in everyone. She also loves fashion.  Her aspiration is to be a famous fashionista.  Her style is fancy and frilly.

 

Sadie comes with everything shown here, including a face mask for your child, a bath bomb with hidden makeup brush surprise, color changing nail color and extra fashions.

 

Meet Tiffany! She reminds me a lot of myself.  She is a loyal friend.  She is shy at first, but becomes a fast BFF who will fly to the moon and back for you.  Her dream is to create the #1 Social App, and her style is casual chic.

 

 

Tiffany comes with everything you see here. She is so pretty!

Skills Every Homeowner Should Cultivate

Pexels – CCO Licence

 

When you own your own home, you are responsible for its upkeep, and unfortunately, that kind of stuff doesn’t come with a manual. 

 

So, if you want to keep your home safe, secure, and as attractive as possible, there are a few things you should learn including the following:

 

How to unclog the sink

 

There are lots of plumbing tips for homeowners that are useful to learn, but clogging the sink is one of the most basic and commonly needed, and luckily it’s very easy to do. Simply fill the sink with water and plunge until the blockage is cleared. If it is very deep, the drain snake should be all you need to get rid of the debris that is causing the clog. 

 

How to change a fuse

 

Fused don’t last forever and when they fail, your electrical appliances can stop working. Luckily, it’s really easy to change a fuse as you will see in this great guide. Just make sure, if you sare dealing with a fuse box, that you always turn the electricity off before you touch anything, and that goes for any electrical works you may be doing from changing a lightbulb to wiring in a light fitting.

 

How to fix a faucet that’s leaking

 

Leaky faucets are one of the most common household problems. In most cases, it is just a matter of replacing the washer, which you can do by turning off the water and removing the screw in the top of the handle. If there are no cracks in the plastic or rubber, remove the washer, replace and then put the faucet back together again. Job done.

 

How to hang things on drywall

 

Whether you want to hang family photos or a beautiful work of art, then it is a good idea to learn how to hang heavy things on drywall, especially if it is quite thin because, if you get it wrong, you could end up doing serious damage to that drywall.

 

What’s the secret to hanging heavy items on thin drywall? Don’t use one-shaped plastic anchors, use a toggle bolt instead. Yes, it really is that simple.

 

How to get rid of mold

 

Mold is such a big problem in so many homes. It is unsightly, bad for your health, and bad for your home’s integrity too. Luckily, it is actually quite easy to get rid of mold by washing it with a solution of water and bleach in the first instance, and then ensuring that your home is as dry as possible in the second instance. You can also use things like mold-resistant paint to prevent future mold growth, and it’s a really good idea to do that if your home is particularly humid or you have a lot of issues with mold and mildew.

 

If you cultivate all of these basic homeowner skills, you will be able to keep your home in great condition without having to spend lots of money on contractors and handymen which is always a good thing!

Alec’s Father
Alec’s father is a woodworker. He originally lived in a different region, but recently moved to the Hisui region to procure materials. He came to fear Pokémon after a certain incident.

Zorua (Hisuian Form)

Great gifts for the Foodie

We love to find great foods.  A great food gift is always on the list when you are invited over for dinner.  We will be adding to this guide when ever we find something amazing.

 

Wildgrain

I was wondering how good can a bread and noodle box really be.  Will it taste freezer brunt or even fresh.  I was floored by how good this bread was.  The only thing I would change about this box is to also sell individual items.  I want like 10 loafs of the Sourdough.  The whole box was amazing.  Wildgrain is the first bake-from-frozen box for sourdough breads, fresh pastas, and artisanal pastries. All of our products are baked within 25 minutes (no thawing!) and are made with clean, easy-to-understand ingredients.

 

Formerly known as The Collaborative, this brand is revealing their new name change and line of 4 plant based ganache desserts at Expo West this Thursday. Free from dairy & gluten, these coconut based desserts are certainly not free from temptation.
OMG this water is amazing.  I need like a truck full for this summer. You feel more refreshed after a Ten Alkaline Spring Water.  I love that it is in a can it is so refreshing on a hot summer day.  They are a top rated independent brand and in the news they recently released their water in 12oz aluminum cans to major retail/grocers across the country. They are the first alkaline water brand to do this, and they are also very popular because their water is 10ph, which is higher than most competitors.
Think of Golden Monk Fruit as you would brown sugar. BetterBody Food’s blend is low-glycemic and the perfect way to add natural sweet flavor to any recipe or beverage. This healthy alternative contains a mix of erythritol and monk fruit that imitates the sweetness of sugar but contains zero calories, and is preservative free. Use like normal sugar in a 1:1 ratio.
My sister swore by her Dutch Oven for years.  It took me way to long to get on the Dutch Oven train.  This is amazing.  It cooks evenly and I can go from stove top to oven or BBQ with no problem at all.  The meat come out falling off the bone in like half the time.  I think a Dutch oven should be on any foodies list.

Daily To Do List Getting On Top Of You? Here’s What To Do

We all know just how stressful being a parent can be; you’ve got kids to raise, a lot of errands to run, and a lot of budgeting and bill paying to keep up with as well. And every so often it’s nice to moan about these things, despite knowing you wouldn’t have it any other way! 

 

However, when you’re starting to absolutely dread getting up in the morning, it’s clear that something needs to change. You can’t take on everything at once, and your daily to do list should never be impossible to work through. And that’s why we’ve collected some pointers below; put them to good use and help take the pressure off during the day. 

If only it was that simple! (Pexels Image – CC0 Licence)

 

Don’t Bottle Anything Up

 

The most important thing to do when your to do list is getting on top of you is to talk about it! You should never bottle up your frustration, because it might explode out of you otherwise, and the entirely wrong person will get it in the neck. 

 

Don’t be passive aggressive, don’t keep it to yourself, just talk openly about how much you have to do today. You never know when someone you love will offer to take a few tasks on for you. And if they don’t, it’s never bad to ask for a bit of help from them! 

 

Assign Tasks on a Monthly Basis

 

Do you really have to do everything right now? Think about it: does your to do list have to be so long? Or can some things be put off for a little while and be done another day, or reassigned entirely? 

 

For example, if you’re thinking about washing the cushion covers and cleaning behind the sofa, but you’ve also got a lengthy meeting to attend, one of these jobs can wait for another day! Save it for the end of the month and you’ll welcome in the first day of the next month with some fresh furniture to relax on! 

 

Remember, There’s Help Out There

 

Finally, it’s important to remember that you’re never going to be alone in taking on the world. There are a lot of people to rely on in your personal life, who would hate to hear you struggling, and quite a few services you can turn to as well. For example, if you want some professional advice because elderly relative care is getting on top of you, a nursing home advisor won’t be hard to get in touch with. 

 

So the next time you’re worried about how much you’re taking on, and the signs are showing in your mental state, reach out and just talk to someone about it. Take the weight off even just a little by sharing the problem out loud, and never be afraid to actually ask for help. People are always more forthcoming than we first think! 

 

If you’ve got a never ending to do list, stop it in its track with these tips.
