For the Weak of Bladder ~ Always Discreet Liners! #DiscreetatTarget




Last year, I had some bladder issues. I had never imagined that my bladder would be one of the things to give me problems as I aged. To make a long story short, I had to have 2 procedures. There was a probability it could have been cancer but, thankfully, it wasn't.


But after the procedures, I started noticing that my bladder was weaker than usual. I had to start running to the bathroom more often and had to be careful if I didn't go the minute I felt the need. Yes, this is TMI but that's what happens when you get older.

I had to start thinking about products that could help me. And, I found Always Discreet products. Because Always wants to help everyone, you can find Always Discreet products in liners, pads and underwear. Because my problem is not so bad, I swear by the Always Discreet Liners! I never thought I would have to buy them but I did. When I shop, I love shopping at Target for my supplies.


Now shopping for these products can be a little awkward. I used to be embarrassed about picking up a pack but no longer. Especially when I have heard from friends younger than me who also have weak bladders like myself. If you feel embarrassed, Target has a great subscription service! It's easy to sign up and you can them have the products delivered to your house. Plus, you will get a discount and free delivery! How is easy is that?

I love that I can easily slip Always liners into my purse for emergencies. I keep them handy and since they are small and discreet, I never have to feel awkward. They fit perfectly because they are thin and flexible. And there have been times when I had to give one to a friend. They work and that's why I use them. Unfortunately, it is a fact of life and it is lucky there are products like Always Discreet that make it easier to live with the issue.



I love that Always Discreet absorbs 2x more than you need* so there are no worries about having an accident. Always protects you from bladder leaks so you can feel confident and do what you want. I don't worry any longer. I can dance, laugh and be active. If you feel you need a little extra protection, then head over to Target and pick up some Always Discreet products.

Nonni's Mango Coconut THINaddictives Review and Giveaway!


These "cookies" have the word addictive in the name. And they are. I have reviewed Nonni's Thinaddictive before and I will keep reviewing them as long as they have new flavors for me to try. I love them.

I take them to work and leave them in my desk and when the afternoon come and I want a snack, I can have THINaddictives and skip all the junk food that is ever present at work. The little pack is 100 calories so I don't have to feel guilty.

THINaddictives are crunchy and sweet. Because they have the nuts and fruit baked in, every bite is a sweet surprise. After having 3 of these, I am fully satisfied and the munchies go away. I have had to start hiding my box of THINaddictives at work because my co-workers starting coming and taking them because they are so good!

AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Sheer Hydration Lotion Giveaway!


As an AVEENO® Ambassador, I love sharing tips for healthier skin. Luckily, I got some great ones from Dermatologist Dr. Francisco Flores. Dr. Flores advises that he best kept secret to healthy skin is to keep it hydrated. I know this is true because if I do not drink enough water, my skin gets dry and looks unhealthy.

Here are some other tips from Dr. Flores:

Don’t just apply sunscreen before you leave the house.
The key is to reapply every two hours when you’re outdoors in order to minimize sun damage throughout the day. Remember the ideal broad-spectrum sunscreen should have an SPF 30 or higher.

Healthy-eating habits do matter.
What you eat also affects your skin’s health, especially as it ages. Eat foods rich in antioxidants and proteins to help nourish and renew damaged skin.

Don’t forget your lips!
Ditch the gloss and go for a balm instead. Balms tend to add extra moisture to your lips and stay on longer. Consider using one with an SPF 15, no less!

Have fun, but don’t forget to rest.
Lack of sleep can slow the production of collagen in the skin. When this happens, the skin loses its elasticity and begins to look prematurely aged.

Moisturize, moisturize and then moisturize some more!
Dry skin is one of the first signs that your skin needs immediate attention. During the summer months, moisturizing can prevent dry patches, which causes uneven skin tone. Use an ultra-sheer lotion such as the NEW AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Sheer Hydration Lotion. This lotion is formulated with ACTIVE NATURALS® Colloidal Oatmeal, which absorbs in seconds and helps to replenish and hydrate the skin for 24 hours.


AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Sheer Hydration Lotion is my go to moisturizer. It really works for my skin. It keep my skin looking healthy and smooth. And you all know how much I love AVEENO!!!

I can't share tips and not offer a giveaway, right? So I am giving away some AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Sheer Hydration Lotion. You all know the drill. Enter below on the Rafflecopter widget.

Bridge of Spies starring TOM HANKS! Opens October 16th!


When I heard about this movie, I was so excited. If you know me, you know that Steven Spielberg is one of my favorite directors ever. And you know I love Tom Hanks because he is one of the most amazing actors ever. So how can you go wrong with Steven Spielberg directing Tom Hanks?

Here is the synopsis of the movie:

A dramatic thriller set against the backdrop of a series of historic events, DreamWorks Pictures/Fox 2000 Pictures’ “Bridge of Spies” tells the story of James Donovan, a Brooklyn lawyer who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on the near-impossible task to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot. Screenwriters Matt Charman and Ethan Coen & Joel Coen have woven this remarkable experience in Donovan’s life into a story inspired by true events that captures the essence of a man who risked everything and vividly brings his personal journey to life.

Here is the first peek at Tom Hanks in Bridge of Spies!

Father's Day is right around the corner. Why not get dad a really cool gadget instead of the boring tie, pajamas or cologne?

Head over to Best Buy and check out the new 3DRobotics Solo Drone. The Solo arrived at Best Buy on June 8th just in time for Father's Day. What father wouldn't like this cool tech gadget? I know my dad would love it!

The Solo drone is the first-ever drone powered by two integrated Linux computers, making capturing the perfect shot easy for anyone. Solo can define its own flight. This means you can get a great shot because you are focusing on the images instead of flying the drone.

The Solo retails for $999. That sounds expensive but you do get what you pay for. Being able to get incredible shots while on vacation or just around the house is worth it.



If you are looking for a fun and unique Father's Day gift, the Solo drone is the way to go. Head over to Best Buy and you can get a FREE Solo Smart Battery (Reg. Price: $149.99) when you purchase the 3DR Solo Drone (Sku: 5354101). *Offer valid 6/7-7/11 at Best Buy.

McFarland USA Review


If you know me, you know I am a sucker for sports movies and any movie with Kevin Costner. And a Kevin Costner sports movie is like heaven.

That is why I loved McFarland USA. Here is the synopsis of the movie:

In the tradition of Disney sports movies comes “McFarland, USA” based on a true story of underdogs triumphing over tremendous obstacles. This heartwarming drama follows novice runners who strive to build a cross-country team under Coach Jim White (Kevin Costner) in their predominantly Latino high school. Everyone has a lot to learn about each other, but when Coach realizes the boys’ exceptional running ability, things change. Beyond their talent, it’s the power of family, commitment to each other and work ethic that transform them into champions — helping them achieve their own American dream.



I think why I loved it is because it is a feel good movie based on a true story. Like all sports movies, there are always underdogs and, if the movie is good, you end up rooting for them. This is what I did when watching this movie. The movie is a little formula but most sports movies usually are. But you know what? That's okay by me.

I also loved it because it reminded me of my own family and culture. So many instances in this movie made me think about my mom or cousins. But there are also a few missed opportunities to talk about the plight of the migrant workers in the Central Valley. I also love the fact that it is a movie about Latinos because there are few of those.



I also felt that Kevin Costner did a wonderful job as Coach White. The real standouts are the kids through Carlos Pratts and Ramiro Rodriguez are wonderful as the kids that Coach White wants to motive. Maria Bello is great as Kevin Costner's movie wife.

Overall, the movie will leave you satisfied and happy. It is always good to watch movies that make you realize that so many people have so many obstacles in front of them but still do great things. I give McFarland USA a thumbs up! Take the kids and enjoy.



McFarland USA on Disney Blu-ray Combo Pack, Disney Movies Anywhere and Digital HD is available now!!!

Trade up to The LG G4 Smartphone! @LGUSAMobile @BestBuy #LGG4

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.

It's almost time for me to trade in my phone. Because of my plan, I can trade in my phone every year if I want. I am considering it because my phone is almost obsolete although I bought it 2 years ago. One of the phones I am seriously considering is the new LG G4.

I headed over to Best Buy the other day and checked it out. Holy moley it is a sleek little phone. The size and feel are amazing. The phone fits in he palm of your hand making it easy to grip and use. I loved that you can get different back covers. They come in a leather, metallic and ceramic style. And the phone is upgradable. You can upgrade up to 2TB with micro SD card and a replaceable high capacity 3,000mAh battery. The battery is something I am interested in since I need a battery that lasts a long time.



I loved the camera. It has a manual mode with 15 settings and you can control how your pictures are captured. That is over my head but I like the idea that I can change the options and maybe get some cool photos. It has a f/1.8 aperture for impressive performance in low light. That is perfect for nighttime. A 16MP rear facing camera and an 8MP front facing camera allows you to get some really excellent shots. I tested it and I can say that the camera on this phone is better than mine.



The display is nice as well. It has a 5.5” IPS Quantum Display for an outstanding visual experience. It has Quad HD resolution with a 528 PPI that gives you incredible detail in the display. The display is 25% brighter and there is a 50% improvement in contrast that gives you richer images.


I really liked this phone and I am thinking of trading my in for this brand. You need to go check it out if you are considering a new phone. It is a great phone for the value. And if you head over to Best Buy and purchase the LG G4, you will get a $100 Best Buy® Gift Card. Offer valid LG G4 Release Date-6/13/15

Carex AccuRelief Pain Reliever Review and Giveaway!


It's no secret that I suffer from back and knee pain. It's funny because I never know when the pain will flare up. Last week, I had a huge event for work and my pain flared up again. I have been nursing my back for a week. My back also flares up when I travel because I am sitting for long periods of time and also running around the airports.

Luckily, I found AccuRelief. Accurelief is a on-the-go pain management tool. The AccuRelief uses TENS therapy (electrotherapy) to block the nerve pathway from transmitting pain signals from the pain site to the brain while simultaneously increasing endorphin production. It is the first and only FDA-approved TENS device for full body pain relief.


The AccuRelief comes in four varieties for both at home and on-the-go pain relief. The Wireless Remote Control TENS device in particular allows travelers to move freely about the airport without wires while subtly treating and preventing pain. With 25 levels of adjustable intensity, users can just stick the gel pads to the treatment area for a 30-minute treatment session with almost immediate pain relief.



I will try anything to help relive my pain. I hate taking medicine so this is a great alternative. Plus, it is easy to use. The wireless remote controls the amount of electrotherapy you want on that particular spot. You have little pads that attach to the electrode and those attach to your skin. You place it on the spot where you have the pain.



I love this the AccuRelief because it is the same treatment I pay for when I go to my chiropractor. He always attaches electrodes to my back to help stimulate the my muscles when they are tight. Now I can have the same treatment for free and in the convenience of my own home. I really like that. Because electrotherapy really helps my aches and pains.

This is such a great device if you suffer from any type of pain. It is really helpful because I know electrotherapy has worked for me before so I will use this often. I also love it because it is portable and I can take it anywhere I travel. Of course, I have a great giveaway as well. I have a Carex AccuRelief™ Dual Channel TENS for one lucky reader. This one is not wireless but works like the one I received. If you want to win, enter below on the Rafflecopter widget below.

The other day I turned on my TV and got the blue screen of death. I panicked. I started turning the TV off and on and finally the TV came up. I told my hubby and he said that it happened to him as well. Our TV is only 6 or 7 years old but it might be dying and we need a new one.

Luckily, we have a Best Buy nearby so when our TV does fizzle out, we can go get a new one. My choice would be a new Samsung SUHD TV!

The new Samsung SUHD TVs reveal more colors and a brighter picture. You get more real life colors! The TV's are powered by a revolutionary panel featuring Nano-crystal technology. The immersive curved screen portrays a greater sense of depth. Easily access the content you love with the advanced Samsung Smart TV. It also has 4 times the resolution of a full HD TV. It is a pretty amazing TV. You can learn more at the Best Buy website.



Head over to your local Best Buy and catch a sneak peek of Jurassic World in Samsung Entertainment Experience Shops inside Best Buy. I can't wait to see Jurassic World and hopefully by the time it is out on DVD, we will have a new Samsung SUHD TV in the house!



Now through June 14, you can save up to $1500 on Samsung SUHD TVs at Best Buy. That's a great deal!

So visit Best Buy and check out the new SUHD TVs and watch the new Jurassic World clip!
