Enroll Your Child in a British Soccer Camp!


My 6 year old daughter is fascinated with soccer and has been nagging us since she was 4 years old to sign her up for soccer. She's in kindergarten now so this spring she will finally have the opportunity to join the local soccer team, and let me tell you, she is beyond excited! So excited that she has been asking every day since then if it's time for soccer practice. Ugh, 2 more months of this? 
 A few weeks ago, her school sent home a form inviting any child interested in playing soccer to sign up for the British Soccer Camp which thankfully will be offered in our area. I instantly thought this would be a great opportunity for her to become the best player she can be.

Rent College Textbooks and Save Up to 80%!

This is a "sponsored post." The company who sponsored it compensated me via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value. 

I recently went back to college to work on my Bachelor of Science degree for Nutrition. It's been about 7 years since I've had to purchase college textbooks and let me tell you, the prices have gone up dramatically! I registered for a Sociology class but had to drop it because I couldn't afford the book which was $239! That's outrageous! 
I understand that I could always sell the book back to the school at the end of the semester, but, you and I both know that the colleges only offer you a fraction of what you paid. Plus, there was no way I could afford that book on top of my $200 Statistics book, graphing calculator, and two other textbooks needed for classes. 
I like to save as much money as possible, especially on things I'll only be using for a short time. This is exactly why I'm using Campusbookrentals.com for the other two textbooks needed for my classes. 
Campusbookrentals.com gives students the option to rent college textbooks for 40-90% off bookstore costs with flexible renting periods and free shipping both ways. Plus, students are allowed to highlight in their rented textbooks without paying ANY fines! Imagine how much money you could save by renting your college textbooks from Campusbookrentals.com.
Here's a little break down of the costs related to my Sociology textbook.
That's a huge difference!  On top of the huge savings, Campusbookrentals.com offers a 21 day no-hassle money-back guarantee. If a student drops their class, orders the wrong book, or just changes their mind, that student wouldn't even have to pay for shipping! Plus, with every book rented, Campusbookrentals.com donates to Operation Smile

So, what are you waiting for? The second half of the college semester starts in just a few weeks so if you need books, head over to Campusbookrentals.com now and give them a try! I promise, you won't be disappointed!

#HintingSeason with LG OLED at Best Buy

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.

#HintingSeason is upon us and if you're anything like me, only top-of-the-line electronics will do! The LG OLED TV at Best Buy is on the top of my wish list this year, but, LG's latest display technology is something you must see and experience to fathom the perfection of it's picture quality. 

The LG OLED TV delivers the ultimate display with Infinite Contrast ratio that measures and exhibits only the most radiant whites and profound blacks while offering a more lifelike viewing experience. This is something that has only been seen in our dreams until recently! OLED self-lighting pixels are able to switch on and off individually, offering the first infinite contrast ratio. But, that's not all...
By increasing the color range and clarity, LG's exclusive 4 Color Pixel technology provides the most illuminated, vivid colors. LG's 4 Color Pixel technology adds a white sub-pixel to the customary three colors (red, green and blue) which intensifies both the color range and accuracy. Doing this improves the OLED pixels' ability to express realistic colors substantially while defining the way for the next-generation in TV displays. 
If you haven't seen LG's OLED TV in person, you must! The LG OLED TV is pencil thin with a depth of only 0.21" at its thinnest point and it's curved design is like something you would see in a movie set based on the future. Designed for the maximum experience, the curved screen allows your eyes to be equally distant from all parts of the display while sitting in front of the TV. The technology of OLED allows for a simpler internal structure and with just two layers, the LG OLED TV is remarkably lightweight and wafer-thin. 
The OLED TV comes equipped with LG's Smart TV webOS platform which is extremely easy and fun to use. The new webOS user interface features a completely redesigned Launcher menu that pulls together all of your entertainment choices while organizing your recent viewing history, what's live on TV, and custom user recommendations. LG's Smart TV webOS platform is also armed with a loaded LG Store which is ready to deliver the latest movies, TV shows, and apps 24/7.
Best Buy’s everyday price of $3499.99 for the LG OLED TV saves you $500! The LG OLED TV sounds like something we've all been dreaming about for years but don't take my word for it! Get ready for the best Holiday ever by heading in to your local Best Buy to Discover LG OLED TV – The Ultimate Display for yourself!
LG  55EC9300 SKU# 7846019 – OLED TV

CEDAR POINT ANNOUNCES NEW FLOORLESS ROLLER COASTER FOR 2015!!!


Say goodbye to the Mantis and hello to the new floorless roller Coaster, RougarouCedar Point, The Roller Coaster Capital of the World!®, will introduce a dynamically new riding experience when it unleashes Rougarou™ in the spring of 2015!
Named after a terrifying werewolf-like creature in French folklore, Rougarou [roo-guh-roo] feeds on screams and lurks in and around the swampy lagoon at the center of the park, shared with other coasters like Iron Dragon and Top Thrill Dragster.
Rougarou’s floorless trains will take riders on an epic journey at speeds reaching 60 mph as their feet dangle just inches above the track and the murky waters below. The trains will be manufactured by Bolliger & Mabillard, Monthey, Switzerland, the same team behind rides like Raptor and GateKeeper, and will transform the ride experience dramatically while utilizing the structure and track of the former Mantis roller coaster.
The ride will begin with a climb to the top of the 145-foot-tall first hill, providing optimal  views of the Cedar Point skyline. After reaching the peak, the trains will make a 180-degree turn to the right and plummet 137 feet, at a 52-degree angle, to within inches above the water. Thrill-seekers caught in Rougarou’s grasp will then be flipped upside-down by a 119-foot-tall vertical loop, spun around a 103-foot-tall dive loop, whipped around a highly-banked 360-degree turn and then twisted upside-down again by the world’s only inclined loop on a floorless coaster, angled at a wicked 45 degrees. Just when guests think the ride is over, the steel beast will take them through a 360-degree flat spin, tight and twisty turns and a figure-eight finale. Riders must be 54” tall to ride Rougarou.
“Rougarou is going to be a fantastic addition to our coaster lineup and our guests are going to love it,” said Jason McClure, vice president and general manager of Cedar Point. “With the swampy waters below, the vibrant colors of the supports and track, lighting and other effects, it will be a ride like no other at the park.”
2015 will also mark the debut of the newly-renovated Hotel Breakers. Located along the mile-long Cedar Point Beach, Hotel Breakers will complete its two-year transformation into the ultimate resort destination. Along with a new exterior, the modernized hotel will have a new entrance portal, classic interior finishes, newly-furnished and remodeled rooms with LCD TV’s, new furniture, bedding and d├ęcor, and many other amenities and offerings. Additional enhancements include a new Starbucks and the Surf Lounge bar inside the famous rotunda, widened exterior green space with panoramic views of Lake Erie and an outdoor water play area with zero depth entry and splash features.
Other amenities include two pools and Jacuzzis, access to the Cedar Point Beach and Boardwalk, a gift shop, arcade, exercise room, three restaurants, Early Entry (access to some of the biggest rides and coasters before the park opens to the general public), discounted Cedar Point admission tickets, complimentary Wi-Fi and the comfort and convenience of staying right next to the rides and roller coasters of Cedar Point. Reservations for the 2015 season can be placed now online at cedarpoint.com/hotelbreakers or by phone at (419) 627-2106.
Be sure to check out Cedar Point's Halloweekends before the season comes to an end on November 1st! Halloweekends is open Fridays from 6pm-Midnight, Saturdays 11am-Midnight, and Sundays 11am-8pm. Purchase tickets now!
Located on a sandy peninsula along the shore of Lake Erie, Cedar Point has been named as one of the best amusement parks in the world by USA Today, TripAdvisor, The Travel Channel and more. Cedar Point’s amazing lineup of roller coasters has received top billing by CBS News, Time magazine, the Los Angeles Times and many more.

Urban Decay eyeshadow primer

I am a makeup junkie. I love trying all different kinds of products and a huge fan of changing my look from day to day. Today I’m going to review Urban Decay Eyeshadow make-up primer potion- original. This product is fantastic.

The Original primer potion is great if you’re like me and have both matte and shimmery eye-shadows and like to switch it up often throughout the weeks. You just take barely a pea size amount, rub it in, let it dry, and you’re ready to go.

All day my makeup stays put and the color lasts forever, even when I am running around waiting tables on a busy Saturday night. My make-up never slides, never creases, never so much as smudges the entire time I am working. This is honestly the best primer I have found, and the most versatile as well. It keeps your mattes flat and even with no creases, and your shimmeries sparkly all day long.

The only draw back to this product is when it says it offers 24 hours of lasting coverage, it means it. I ran out of makeup remover and it takes forever to get all of my eye make- up off after work.


This product runs anywhere from $10-$20 depending on the size, and can be found at any Sephora, or Ulta store, or online at Urbandecay.com. Be sure to give me feed back and tell me what you think about Urban Decay Original Primer Potion. Or tell me what your favorite product is so I can review it.

My Favorite Natural Remedies to Deal With My MS Symptoms

In 2006 I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) which caused me to drop out of school. It took me months to find a medication and fight with the companies to cover the 3,000 a month for my interferon. After a few months they stopped sending my medication and when I called I was told there was a recall on it and they had to switch me to something else. My new injections caused me terrible pain to the point where I couldn't sleep. However my doctor refused to switch me and told me to just take Tylenol to relieve the pain. After almost a year of this I had had it. I started looking into alternative medicine and researching my illness. There is so much out there that my doctor never even told me about even after I asked about more natural remedies that wouldn't kill my body and leave me unable to function at work.  Here are some of the things I found that worked great for me.

Bilberry leaves and berries- You can find these in tea, pills, or certain areas as fresh fruit. When I lived in the south I loved to eat them, now I have to settle for the pills, which you can find at any health foods store or online. These berries are rich in anti-oxidants and helped a lot with the inflammation the interferon was causing on my joints. My personal favorite is natures answer, which you can find for about $15.00 USD

Dandelions – This plant was a huge energy booster for me. My biggest problem with MS was tremors and fatigue (especially in the summer time.) Dandelion tea is wonderful and very refreshing during those hotter days. My favorite is the Yogi brand tea which you can find for about $6.00 USD

DHA- DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid that can normally be found in fish. (if you don’t like fish they have plenty of tasteless pills for you to try) I take my DHA in prenatal vitamins. It has so many awesome benefits, Brain development for you and your fetus (if you’re pregnant of course), Anti-inflammation to help with those achy days. The fatty acids help with muscle activity and blood flow.

Marijuana- Now obviously this isn’t legal in all states and I am certainly not telling anyone to commit a crime by purchasing illegal substances, but if you can, It’s worth a try. I’m not a huge fan of smoking the product. It makes my shakes worse and leaves me paranoid. I prefer to ingest it in my food or make tea out of it. My MS tremors almost completely stop and depending on the kind of marijuana I can either be productive, or sleepy. If you want to use it to relax I recommend something with a higher THC content and a low CBD. If you want it more for productivity I recommend a high CBD content and a low THC. You always want to talk to a dispensary worker to find the product that best fits your needs.

With any natural remedy you have trial and error. These are just some of the products I found that worked awesome for me. Most of these are not immediate and may take a few days or weeks to show any kind of results. Please also check with your doctor before beginning any of these to make sure it doesn't interfere with other medications.

Go Way Better With Way Better Snacks!




I'm almost embarrassed to tell you about my liking of Way Better Snacks. Their Way Better Blues and Multi Grain snacks have me totally obsessed! You think I'm over exaggerating, huh? Yeah, I'm not... I have made it my mission in life to find these Way Better Snacks close to my home. All of my hard work and searching has yet to pay off but I haven't checked the most obvious store yet, The Fresh Market. Unfortunately for now, this is the only store near my home that carries Way Better Snacks but I hear that they will be available at all Market Place Kroger Stores October 1st. Yay for me, not so yay for you. I will be hoarding all of them in my pantry, sorry guys! My 20 month old daughter is probably just as obsessed with Way Better Snacks, as well, especially if there is hummus involved.  



Way Better Snacks are high in omega 3’s, antioxidants and other vital nutrients, and all are low in sodium and saturated fat.  They're also all natural, vegan, certified gluten free, non GMO, certified kosher, full of whole grains, and free of preservatives. Way Better Snacks also uses a process called sprouting (germination) for their grains and seeds to ensure your body receives all the nutrients it should. Watch the video below to learn more, it explains sprouting way better than I could.



Way Better Snacks has six different types of tortilla chips to choose from including Multi Grain, Unbeatable Blues, Black Bean, Sweet Potato, Naked Blues, and Sweet Chili. My favorites, of course, were the Unbeatable Blues and the Multi Grain, however, I loved all of them. Most of Way Better Snacks Tortilla Chips are made with organic sprouted golden flax, chia seeds, quinoa, radish seeds, brown rice, and broccoli seeds. The broccoli and daikon radish seeds contain sulphoraphane glucosinolate which is the natural antioxidant found in broccoli. I know what you're thinking, Way Better Snacks sound weird and way too healthy, but trust me, the flavor is still there and the seeds just give those amazing chips personality (plus, I like to pick them out and munch on them).

Way Better Snacks are "sprouted" to be the best so go ahead and give them a try! Connect with Way Better Snacks on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to day on current promotions and news.
