Save Oliver James Giveaway!!!

Sweet N Sour Deals has put together a giveaway in honor of Oliver James, a rescued Golden Retreiver Puppy.
Oliver James was rescued before he was even born by Laura Kody.
At 8 weeks old Oliver suddenly lost his ability to walk, and Laura began taking him to vets to find a cure. They saw 9 vets and spent thousands of dollars on testing, but no one knew what his condition was or could give them much hope for his survival. Finally, They saw a specialist and he was diagnosed with Hypertrophic Osteo-dystrophy.
Over the past year she has tried every treatment available for him and watched him go through recurirng bouts of joint swelling, lameness, and pain so terrible that he couldnt bear to be touched.
A few months ago he started screaming when she touched his mouth, and at that time the vet diagnosed him with his second condition, Craniomandibular Osteopathy.
Over the next few weeks his jaw went through similar bouts of swelling, pain, infection, and calcification that his legs had felt before. Finally his jaw closed shut permanently. He has been unable to eat, drink, pant, chew, or even lick his lips ever since. Laura bottle feeds him 6-10 times a day to keep his weight up, but despite her many efforts he weighs only a very scary 15.4 pounds. To put that in perspective, his littermates all weigh around 60. His toenails have begun to fall out from malnourishment.

#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.

Product Review for Pretzilla Pretzel Buns

So a couple of weeks ago my family and I decided to take a trip up to Whole Foods since we've never been to one and the only organic grocery store around here doesn't have a huge selection. We're walking through checking everything out and I came across these yummy looking soft pretzel buns. I have to say, the packaging is what really caught my eye but then I realized the buns didn't have salt on them so I was even more intrigued. We bought one package of the burger buns even though they were on sale 2 for $7. Two days later we decide to check them out. It wasn't until we had our sandwiches made that we realized they were moldy. We were completely bummed because this was something we've never tried before.

I went ahead and e-mailed the company Pretzilla to inform them of the mold, mind you it was the Saturday of memorial day weekend. I wasn't expecting a reply until at least Tuesday, but to my surprise, I was contacted back the following morning. The comp…

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 …
