Smartypants Vitamins: Teen Guy and Teen Girl Complete Vitamin Giveaway

SmartyPants Vitamins: Teen Guy and Teen Girl Complete Giveaway

When I was young I did not like to take vitamins and I did not understand why it was important to take them daily. As an adult, there are many vitamins that still make me wonder and question their purpose but by and large I have a good idea of the things that my body needs.

As a teenager, not only did I not know what my body needed, but I did not give it much consideration. As it turns out I could have eased some growing pains had I just taken an all in one vitamin like the new SmartyPants Teen Complete Vitamins.

When Strength is Found in the Routine

When Strength is Found in the Routine

When the word routine pops in your head, I am sure you are thinking of the definition which is defined as a sequence of actions regularly followed; a fixed program.

A couple of weeks ago I woke up early to take my father to the hospital for what should have been a routine procedure to improve blood flow in his lower legs. The main reason I thought this would be so routine was that he had literally had the same surgery with spectacularly positive results a couple weeks prior. This first surgery started at 8 and by 9:30 I had a call that he would be released around noon.

When we entered the hospital and began to repeat the same process we had 14 days prior, I was worried but mainly was looking forward to the process being over, and having my father healthy again.

I stayed with him until the last moment when they wheeled him away and decided that I would pick up some donuts for the nurses (it happened to be Nurses Appreciation Week) to deliver when I returned to pick him up. I drove home wondering if I was making the right decision to leave, wondering if I was really treating this as routine, and not giving in the thought and seriousness I should. Should I stay? Should I go home? I wrestled with that decision and in the end decided to head home.

The Ginger People: Ginger Rescue & Arjuna Bar Review and Giveaway

Ginger People TrioLet’s be honest, we all live stressful lives and sometimes that stress manifests into stomach issues. Most medicines that are made to help stomach issues are harsh and have less than positive side effects.

Since me and concept of nausea are very familiar I appreciate easy solution that will be as natural as possible. Given that this is a common problem during one of Jason and I’s many discussions he suggested that I try a ginger based solution.

I had done a review for the Ginger People about a year ago, and since they recently released some new products, I was curious to try their new ginger products.

The Ginger People Review

The Ginger People Review and Giveaway

The Ginger People - AssortmentAs I have mentioned in the past, as I get older I seem to be getting more sensitive in the stomach region. The newest issue I just discovered is that if I have any dairy after a certain hour I pay for it about 8 hours later in the form of nausea and sickness. It took a little effort to discover why I was waking up at 6 am every morning sicker then a dog, but now that I have I can work around it.

This is not the first time I have experienced nausea and I am always looking for ways to ease that feeling it gives. During one of Jason and I’s many discussions he suggested that I try some Ginger Ale. I had tried this as a kid under my father’s roof with mixed results and honestly reliance on a memory that is aging. I decided to give a try to some ginger, but I wanted an easier method then the ill tasting ale.

Hyland’s Homeopathic Menstrual Cramps Review

Let me start by saying that the products featured in this post were provided to me free of charge in consideration of a review from Hyland’s Homeopathic . This in no way will influence the review to follow & all opinions are my own.

Hyland’s Homeopathic Menstrual Cramps Review

20150324_203357“I get knocked down but I get up again” are not only lyrics to a popular 90’s song but really the story of my life 2-3 days a month. As my chronological age has progressed, the severity of my monthly menstrual cramps have as well. For that 2-3 days a month I am held hostage by cramps to severe to function. I have tried many remedies for these over the years including heating pads, ibuprofen, hot showers, chamomile tea and wishful thinking.

I am always open to trying something new to relieve the discomfort that I feel each month. I was given the opportunity to review Hyland’s Homeopathic Menstrual Cramps tablets. I figured no matter the result a little relief is better than none at all. There are 100 tables in the bottle, and it is recommended to dissolve 2-3 tablets under your tongue every four hours. It takes very little time to dissolve the tablets, less then 20 seconds total.

The idea behind the homeopathic tablets is that they assist by stimulating the body to safely heal itself. Instead of suppressing the symptoms like many over the counter medicines do, Hyland’s tablets uses natural ingredients to help the body do what it wants to do naturally.
