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.

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.

Freebie from Shutterfly

I am an active member  of  Kelloggs Rewards and I occasionally get freebies from them.  Sometimes I get free books for my kids and they also offer  free  offers for other  stores like Shutterfly.  Here are the two items that I was able to get for free.

 I also love this personalized mugs that I got for our 12th annoversary.
 Shutterfly has so many  great products to choose from for every occasion.  The great thing is you can personalized it the way you want to with pictures.
 Ever since I was in college, I  collect mugs so this add to my collection.
 My husband  said that I must have paud  a lot for this but I told  him that I got it for free via offer at Kellogs and Shutterfly collaboration.  I paud shipping cost for these items but  it's not that much.
 It might not be a symbolic giftt for anniversary but  it has  our life's  event in there so this is quite priceless.
I have collected  few books  from Kellogs  and also redeemed  a reward from them from the codes I have registered at their website.  They have phased out the  codes  now  but you can still earn points byy registering your   loyalty card and  uploading your recipe.

Organizing makes Easy with Smead #ShopletReviews #ProductReviews

Time flies don't you agree?  The first week of November is gone and I  feel like I did not accomplish anything, blog-wise.  Thanksgiving is coming and soon Christmas, after that, tax season will be here.  I am slowly  organizing all the documents that we will need when we file taxes.  I am glad that I have office supplies that I can use for  all of this.

I got this Smead Redrope TUFF Pocket File Pockets from Shoplet to review and I am very glad  because it is perfect to itemized my tax documents. These Tuff pockets are virtually indestructible yet they look like standard redrope files.  I love that you can large, heavy files, catalogs or notebooks and it's holding  up so good.  You can get this by visiting Shoplet through this  SMD73380 link.


This Smead 3-in-1 SuperTab Section Folder is also perfect for my blogging  tasks and bills to pay.   It features a  Lockit technology so you can securely subdivide multiple documents within a single file folder. The 3 extra-high interior pockets safely hold documents, photos and certificates for secure transport while keeping the materials readily accessible.  The 2 pockets are perfect for holding letter-size documents.  My son actually asked me to have this  for his  drawings so I gave this to him.
As a blogger,  I have to be organized and keep goals on hand or else I will never do whatever I need to do.  That's especially important when you do a lot of product reviews because you have ti keep a schedule and all that other things that you need to do.
You may get this  though this SMD11905 link.

Thrift Shopping at Swap

We went to the mall  a couple of weeks ago. I was hoping to find some good deals on Fall clothing but I did not find any.  So I browsed  all the selection at swap.com and find these for three dollas each!  All of these are almost new so it work out really good for me  and I found the size  that fits just right.

 I love the fit of these two floral shirts.  Not only that I can use these for Fall but also  great for Spring weather.
I am not very fond of turtle neck shirts but I love the design of this mock turtle neck.  I thought this would look nice with the white lace skirt I bought on sale at walmart for $4.99.
 This stripe shirt is the only one that I am not fond of but still a great buy.  I can use this insidr my house and it will be comfortable.
 I am not sure of this button shirt but I bought it anyway because  you can't beat $3 for that.  Heck even in Goodwill, prices are crazy and theur clothes are not even in great condition.
 Despite the on and off cold weather, I still go  with myt walks outdoors and this active wear isgreat for walking.  It goes great together with the  thin jacket that I bout at TJMaxx  a couple of months ago.
 I bought this dress becaise I love the color and as it turned out, it fits my body well so it's a win!  This one though I paid $5 but still a great price.
Lastly, this is my last snag at Swap and I love it, a jean dress.  Hubby asked me where I got it and I told him that I paid $7 for this at Swap.com and he  didn't believe me lol.  He said, there's no way I can find a food  clothing for that price and I said "Yes I did!"
If you guys are looking for some great deals on clothing without breaking your  budget, check out swap.com.  This is not a sponsored post nor a product review, I am just sharing my  experience with them.
