Magnetic Office Set Organizer and Self Laminating ID Labels #ProductReview

My daughter got this magnetic office set organizer at our recent trip to the store and said that she has to have it in her study desk, so we got it.  She's in the stage  now where  organizing becomes her thing.  She used to be so disorganized and messy but  when she turned 10, that all changed.  She is more organized in her room especially.  She even taught me a trick to better organize our clothes.  She found  the neat idea on Pinterest so I applied that in all our  clothes drawer and she's right,  it is more functional.  

It was a perfect timing too because  a couple of days after we bought that, the Avery Easy Align Self-Laminating ID  labels that Shoplet sent me for review arrived so what better way to use it and label her organizer.  

The magnetic plate can be easily hang  on most walls for convenient storage of small items.  It has holes on both sides and the lid of the containers are secure enough to hang the plate.  The organizer set includes map pins,  push pins,  binder clips and paper clips.  I also love the color they  put together on this one.  
You can print the labels on these Avery ID labels but I just  wrote them on the paper  and did not bother to   put it on the printer, it is much easier.  But of course, if you want more professional looking, you can print it. IT has an instruction at the back on how to do it which is easy to follow.  For me, handwritten labels is  more personalized.

The containers has magnet at the bottom so it sticks pretty good.  So now, she doesn't have to dig through the whole thing to find  a piece she needs since  every item has it's own  storage and labels too.
I love Avery products, I have  multiple stuff from them that I constantly use for my kids school stuff and also  for my office here at home.  
 Shoplet have everything that you need for your business and home including Office suppliesCleaning supplies,   Medical supplies, and  Office Furniture.  Thank you once again Shoplet and Avery !

Quick Shopping Trip At TJMaxx

We went out yesterday to buy our son the outfit he needs this coming Friday for their 50s Day as part of the Catholic School Week Celebration.  We had on sale and we didn't spend a dime on it because I used my shop your way reward points.  
 On our way home, we dropped by at TJMaxx to see what they have on sale and found some of these things.  I love that Paris designed stainless steel  utensil holder.  I bought it because it matches my  spice holder which is also a stainless steel.
I also bought this cookie and jelly roll pan.  I love that it is heavy duty and it is only $4.99.  It is is a 15x10x1 in heavyweight aluminized steel  for superior heat conduction and baking.
 I also got a new  pastry brush with integrated tool rest.  It's flexible silicone bristles are perfect for glazing, basting and greasing.  This elevate pastry brush was $3.99.
 I also found this neat storage box which was perfect for the small photo albums  I have.  This cost $7.99.  Then I found a stack of so many beautifully designed photo albums.  This is what I bought because it holds 500  pieces of photos which was  the space I needed for the printed photos that I have had ordered  a couple of years ago.
 My daughter found this and said that we need to buy it for her study desk.  It is a magnetic office set with assorted paper clips, binder clips, , push pins, and map pins.
 So these are some of the  stuff that we recently got from  TJMaxx.  I seldom shopped there but once I do, I always find neat stuff.  Oh which reminds me, I have to pay the charge I made on the card, I  always paid it off after I charged the purchase on the card so I won't get the interest.

Want To Make Money? 3 Stocks You Should Invest In!

Previously, I’ve posted some advice on here about improving your finances. In that articles, I spoke a bit about investing. But, I didn’t tell you what you should be investing in. Today, I’m going to talk you through three things that you should invest in this year:

Social Media

The golden rule of stock market investing is that you want to put your money into something with the potential to grow. Many years ago, people took a chance and put their money into Facebook (FB). And boy, what a chance they took. It’s now worth billions, and guess what? Current FB stock predictions see it being worth even more. Many experts are recommending you scoop up a few shares in Facebook to plan for your retirement. Over time, it looks like prices will rise and rise, meaning you could make a lot of money. And, Facebook also owns another social media giant, Instagram. So, it makes, even more, sense to invest in it. The same can be said for other social networking sites like Twitter. Twitter is newer than Facebook, and has, even more, chance of growing and increasing in worth.

3D Printing

Another thing you should look to invest in is 3D printing stocks. There are lots of 3D printer companies out there that have share prices pretty low right now. Don’t expect them to stay like that forever. We’re starting to see more and more of these printers on the market, and they’ll soon become a household item. In a year or two, everyone will have one, and they’ll be on sale in all electronics shops. It’s worth investing some money in 3D printing stocks while you can. The best part is, share prices will be so low, it won’t cost you much at all. So, even if things do go south, you won’t lose much money. However, I doubt things are going to go badly. It certainly looks like prices will rise, and money will be made. Make sure you’re in there getting a slice of the pie.

Sportswear

There’s a lot of money to be made by investing in sportswear stocks. Think of all the big companies like Nike, Adidas, and Puma. Each year, billions of people are buying their clothes, and they have sponsorship deals with famous athletes. You can’t go a day without seeing someone wearing sportswear. Plus, the health & fitness industry is booming, so more and more people are buying sporty clothes. If you had to choose one specific company to invest in, it wouldn’t be any of the three I mentioned. Instead, you can get good value for money by investing in Under Armour. They’re not as big or well known as the others, but that will soon change. They’re an up and comer and are set to grow and become more valuable.

Investing may seem complicated, but it’s a simple concept. You buy shares in a company, and make money when the share prices increase. For your best chance at making money, keep these three things in mind.

A Little Shopping Area at Sandusky Ohio

 On our way home from Kalahari Resort, we stopped by at one of the  rest areas and services plaza in Sandusky Ohio.  The place is really nice.  The faciity is really clean and it is huge.  They even have   shower area for big truck drivers.  That must be a great thing for truck drivers.
 They have public restrooms,  public telephone,  picnic area and vending machines.
 There are also some shopping areas  by the main information center.
 We did not buy anything but food.  We were starving after 4 hours of swimming at Kalahari.
 Rest areas in the US are truly clean and  organized.  I wish my former country has this kind of facility.
Anyway, we  tried the POpeye's  there and  had a full belly  when we left.

Singing Karaoke

On New Year's eve, w were going to sing karaoke but  the battery to our microphone is dead so we were not able to.  It's been a while since my kids nd I had fun singing with the karaoke.  We don't really have m367 but love to sing with my kids.  I have to recharge my batteries so we could use the microphones once again.

Nail Polish

One of  our daughter's favorite gifts that she got for Christmas were the sets of nail polishes.  Her classmate got her these four beautiful  holiday colors  when they had their exchange gifts at school.
 Her cousin Jen  also got her this  nail salon kit  with glitters and  nail dryer.  She also love this because she gets to dry her nail faster  using the  bottom part of this kit.  IT runs with   batteries.
We were going to get her   something like this because she's been wanting one but I changed my mind and got her something else instead.  I am glad I didn't get it because somebody gave her this.

New Calendar and Meeting Planner #ShopletReviews

In three days, 2015 will be history.  I can't beieve how time flew by so fast  this year.  This year is a great year for my family, healthwise.  We tried our best to be fit and active by  paying more attention to  our diet, we eat  healthier this year inorder to maintain our healthy bodies.  We strive hard in  staying active by  doing outdoor activities and  doing some exercise from time to time.      
To stay on track of our  fitness goals, I got this House of Doolittle 3-Month Vertical Compact Wall Calendar  to jot down our activities as a family.  This is a good   tool in  keeping our appointment dates, great for  staying organized, and a  stylish  calendar to hang on your wall.  I love this design because you don't have to tear the page when you are done with it, you can just flip it at the back and its all good.  
Aside from staying healthy all year round, one of the best things that  happened to us also is my husband's promotion. at the company that he is working  now.  The only thing he doesn't like about it is that he  is attending so many meetings now becuase of his new responsibility.  One time, he got in trouble because he forgot o attend a meeting that he was suppose to attend.  
So in order  for that incident not to happen again, I got hism this House of Doolittle Meeting Planner.  This will be of great help for him.  He was thankful that I handed him  this.  Shoplet is having a 20% off sale  of everything today so if you want to check them out, just  visit any of the links here.

Protect Your Important Documents with LockIt #ProductReview #ShopletReviews

Protecting our  important documents is essential.  I have no locks in my filing cabinet so  I am glad that I received this desktop inbox for review from Shoplet.  This would  be a great addition in my home office.  I can finally have the  place to put  our checks and other stuff that  is important.   Lockit Desktop Inbox has a lockable compartment that provides privacy and security for confidential items such as interoffice mail envelopes, file folders, delivery sleeves and more. This Inbox is a durable steel construction with a scratch- and chip-resistant finish. I also love the fact that the non-slip, non-mar feet will not scratch surfaces.

I am thinking of  donating this Lockable Suggestion Box to my children's school.  I don't see one  at their office and this would be a  great one to  have at their office.  This multi-purpose box is ideal for securely collecting keys, suggestion cards, key cards and more. The multi-orientation design enables front or top opening door to suit user needs. This would easily mounts to vertical wall studs with diamond shaped hole pattern. Drop slot accepts larger key fobs while providing anti-fishing deterrence.
Okay, I want to know, am I  the only one that bother  wrapping coins?  We actually do it for fun  because my kids  save all their  hard earned coins in helping us at home and  when they are behaving good, they get rewarded as well.  They don't really spend their money but instead they put it in their piggy banks.  In December, they get to count how much they  save for the year and then they  deposit it in their own  savings bank account.  So having these Quarters Coin Wrappers will be beneficial for my kids.
Preformed crimped-end coin wrappers are great because  it is nested to save  space.  I remember  when we deposited the kids money last year, the bank told us  that we don't have to wrap them, that we can just bring all the coins and they will put it in their machine for counting.  We told them that it is  part of  kids learning at home.
I was however overwhelmed that they sent me so many lol.  I will have to have a garage  sale  next year to be able to  put all these to use.  But it is good to have.  So far, this is the ones thatthey counted.  They still have two weeks left.  We reward our kids for every  good grades that they get from  their tests in school, for good behavior they show at home and for  doing chores.  It's small things that  really teaches the kids responsibility.  
Shoplet have everything that you need for your business and home including office suppliesoffice stationarypromotional products,  and many others such as medical supplies .   Thank you once again Shoplet !

My Advice for Keeping Your Family Fit and Healthy

We try to be a healthy family as much as we can. We like to lounge around sometimes, but we also love going for walks and bike rides. Being fit and healthy is important if you want to live for a long time. I want to make sure I can be there for my family as much as I can be, and that they're going to be there for me too. So I always make sure that we eat well and get plenty of exercise so that we stay fit. If you want you and your family to be fitter too, there are lots of things you can do to make that happen. Here are some of my favorite ways to live a healthy lifestyle.

Drive Less

It's so easy to drive everywhere when you have somewhere to be. It's quick, and sometimes it's the only way you can travel long distances. But then you can get into the habit of driving everywhere, even if it's less than a mile away. You don't always need to drive, and sometimes it's nice to walk or ride your bike. You can take a bag with you so that you have something to carry any shopping. Not only will you feel healthier, but you can save money, and you'll be out in the fresh air. It might take a little longer to get where you're going, but it could also be quicker. Driving isn't faster if you end up stuck in traffic or having to take a long route!

Eat Foods for Energy

It can be difficult to get through all the long days and still feel energized when you get home. Even the kids can be exhausted before dinner time arrives. When I'm planning our meals, I try to make sure everyone gets the right food to give them energy for the day. Your breakfasts should provide you with slow-release energy to keep you going until at least mid-morning, if not lunchtime. Porridge is always a popular choice, and you can try other healthy cereals. Don't rely on sugar for energy because you'll just end up crashing! Make sure you get plenty of all the nutrients you need.

Cut Down on Unhealthy Snacks

It's so tempting to snack all day if you're not careful. When I'm working at home, I have easy access to everything in the kitchen. But I try not to munch on unhealthy snacks all day just because I can. It's easy to have healthy snacks in the house instead and to send the kids to school with them too. You can have fruit, vegetables, nuts, crackers, and all sorts of other snacks. But just because they're healthier, it doesn't mean you can snack on them all day. For example, nuts can have lots of fat in them. Make sure you choose sensible portion sizes instead of munching right from the packet.

Stop Smoking

If you smoke, there are many reasons you should stop doing it. Firstly, it's better for your children if they don't have to be around you smoking. But even if you don't do it for your family, you should do it for yourself. It will help you to breathe more easily, improve your circulation and give you an overall feeling of health. You can start to feel the benefits very quickly. Many people have started using e-cigarettes to try and quit. You can get them in lots of flavors, like the ones at Flavour Factory E Liquids, so it can even be more fun to try stopping.

Take the Stairs

Adding little bits of physical activity into your life can help you to be fitter without too much effort. Like sometimes leaving the car at home, taking the stairs when you have to go up a few floors is an excellent idea. When you're at home, and you have to get something from upstairs, you can walk up and down a few times before you go back to what you were doing. Just don't forget whatever you went up for!

Make Exercising Part of Your Life

The most important thing to do is to make healthy eating and exercising part of your lifestyle. You need to work out at least a few times a week if you want to stay fit and healthy. Don't just try a fad diet or exercise for a bit until you lose the weight you wanted to shift. Put things into your routine and stick to them.

Being healthy shouldn't be a chore. I love eating healthy food and exercising with my family, so you should too.

RoyalTea Jewelry Candle Review

If you would come to my house, it smells so good right now.   I found my new favorite   candle scent, the Golden Rose from RoyalTea Candles.
I was a little concerned when I  received the candles that I ordered from RoyalTea Candles.  They were inside a bubble mailer package so I was a bit surprised that it did not came in a box ad other company would.  Most of the  candle company that I have previously worked with, their  packaging are in a secure  cardboard box.  But I guess it doesn't really matter because the candles were intact when I opened them.  The candles were well covered with bubble wrap and a piece of cardboard that  protecting the  glass from  breaking.  I just thought it's weird that they don't have an elegant packaging that  will represent their brand.  
 Nevertheless, I was very impressed of the  containers.  It's something I have never seen before.  As you can see  in the pictures below, their containers are pretty unique.
 I ordered the Golden Rose and the Vanilla Bean scents.  My husband really love the vanilla bean scent.  I actually put this golden rose by my desk because even if I did not light it yet, it smells so good and it's soothing.  It brings back memories of summer in the garden.
These natural soy candles are made in the US.  Their company is based in New York.  I love that they have so many  scents to choose from and the surprise jewelry choices includes ring, bracelet, and necklace.  
I was in pain from the work out I did yesterday so I decided to light this golden roase candle to sooth me. So while I was working on something, the smell of the candle really relaxed me and put me in a good mood. This scent is made up of sweet rose, lily, fern, and marigold.
My kids wanted to pull the chain to see the surprise jewelry in it.
I was a bit disappointed that both candle contains the same jewelry, the key necklace. The goof things about it though is that, my daughter and I could each have one when we feel like wearing a matching necklace. The key necklace is valued at $35 so even though you paid $25 for the candle, you still get the jewelry for free so it's a win.

I am dedicating this spicific photo for all those  people
 who  lost their lives in the  horrible terrorist attack in Paris. #PrayforParis
I also have this Lavender Chamomile scent.  As you can see in the photo, the candle was a little damage from the transit.  The bubble wrap did not protect it which was my initial concern when I opened the first  package.  Other than that, it smells  awesome even before I light it.
"The beautiful scented blend of lavender and chamomile creates an excellent aroma therapy candle that soothes and entices."  This  would be a perfect one to light when you are  having a cup of chamomile tea, ahh what a relaxing moment it would be.
 Today (11/16),  I woke up with a  bad  migraine headache so I lit the lavender chamomile when I came home  from my morning walk.  The estimated  burning time of one of these candles is 80 hours so you will get a lot from buying one candle and you also get a surprise gift!
I still have to  see h what surprise is waiting for me.  The candle is not soft enough for me to pull the chain.  I will  updatte this post, later  on today. for the reveal of the jewelry.
 So after a couple of hours if burning it, my migraine slowly went away and  the surprise gift inside the candle is beautiful.  It is a ring this time which I am glad because I was worried it is going to be a key necklace again lol.
