Secure Your Computer from threats with VIPRE Internet Security

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Vipre for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
VIPRE Internet Security is an award winning antivirus software that includes a firewall, website blocking, and a spam filter; making it the complete solution to your internet security needs. VIPRE is the ONLY antivirus software with automatic software patching for out of date programs like Java, Windows, Adobe, Skype, and iTunes. Out of date programs like those are the most common cause of PC viruses. VIPRE Internet Security also comes with free US web based support!
Installation of VIPRE Internet Security is simple; just make sure to uninstall all other anti-virus software before hand so you don't harm your computer. For me, uninstalling the old software was more difficult than installing VIPRE! Apparently, I had two different programs on my computer for internet security, one I had no clue about. VIPRE Internet Security scans your computer for other anti-virus programs be fore installing so you have the option to remove them. Remember, removing all other programs is highly advised. 
The best thing I've noticed about having VIPRE on my computer is that it doesn't slow everything down like other programs. I am such an impatient person so when I have to wait forever for something to load, I get really grumpy. I love that since uninstalling the old software and installing VIPRE, my computer is actually running better! Another thing I really like about VIPRE Internet Security is that there's the option of doing a rapid scan, deep scan, and custom scan. I understand that most programs have this but I've never had an anti-virus program remove a huge threat within minutes, one that my other software never detected. 
If you want the best PC protection out there without slowing down your computer, I encourage you to try out VIPRE.

Hook Dad Up With Demeter Fragrance This Father's Day!

**I recieved this item for the purpose of a review. I was in no way compensated for my opinion as they are my own. Your opinion may vary from mine.**

Demeter Fragrance Library has over 200 scents to choose from on a regular basis including a ton of original scents like Humidor, Earthworm, and Dirt, perfect for the man in your life. Ed, my fiancé got to try Dirt out and let me just say, it smells just like it should, dirt! Ed loved it but I'm not a huge fan of it. I guess if he wanted to smell like he'd been working all day, it'd be a good scent. 

We also got to try out Zombie for Him, which is now discontinued, and it kind of smells like death, hahahaha. I'm serious, well maybe not that serious. Zombie for Him kind of smells like a mix of grass, dirt, and weeds. It doesn't smell bad at all; it's actually kind of fresh.
Demeter Fragrance Library has some off the wall scents but they're definitely true to their description. Clean Windows, Funeral Home, Paint, Mesquite, Glue, and Holy Smoke are just some of their different scents that you probably wouldn't hear of anywhere else. Demeter Fragrance Library also has scents that aren't so odd like Mango, Cotton Candy, and Passion Fruit. 

Before you go anywhere to find a new scent, check out what Demeter Fragrance Library has to offer. You are sure to find something amazing for yourself and for Dad this Father's Day.

Find the Perfect Gift For Dad From The Body Shop

**I recieved this item for the purpose of a review. I was in no way compensated for my opinion as they are my own. Your opinion may vary from mine.**


The Body Shop has ALWAYS been one of my favorite places to shop for body sprays and home fragrance. I've always had a slight obsession with Satsuma and White Musk for the body and Exotic for the home but I've never really paid much attention to their men's products. Recently, my fiancé had the opportunity to test out some of The Body Shop's men's products and he was quite pleased. 
First my fiancé, we'll just call him Ed through this, used The Body Shop's Maca Root Face Scrub. Ed works in a place where dirt just collects in his pores, it's gross to be honest, so recently we have been really trying to get his face cleaned up better. The Maca Root Face Scrub couldn't have come at a better time. He was really happy with the results but stated that it was weird using a product that felt so gritty. I had to explain to him that it was gritty because it's an exfoliant. He said aside from the grittiness, his face felt much cleaner than when he uses just bar soap. 

Next, Ed gave The Body Shop's Maca Root Shave Cream a try. He loved the texture of it and said that he actually felt like he got a closer shave just from using something other than the norm. I think it would have been even smoother if he had a shaving brush but it still worked well. 

Right after shaving, Ed tried out The Body's Shop's Maca Root Razor Relief. He loved it! Mind you, Ed has NEVER put anything on his face besides bar soap and shaving cream. He has never thought it was necessary until I told him how clean his face would feel. Ed said that The Body Shop's Maca Root Razor Relief had a cool feel to it and left his face feeling really soft and comfortable. In fact, he couldn't stop touching it (silly men). 

The last thing he tried was The Body Shop's Maca Root Eye Serum which he also enjoyed. He was just getting ready to head to bed before I made him test all of his new goodies. Now he's up watching TV and playing with the dogs, if that tells you anything. The Eye Serum is meant to wake up and brighten sleepy eyes and reduce puffiness. I think I may have to start using this!

Ed was supposed to try out The Body Shop's Maca Root Deodorant but I just can't seem to get him to try anything but his Old Spice, so I had to do the dirty work for this one. I normally use Clinical Strength over-the-counter deodorant on a regular basis but when I used the Maca Root Deodorant, I didn't see much of a difference. It smelled great, went on clear, and lasted all day. No re-applying! We spend a lot of our time outdoors on days off and the Maca Root Deodorant withstood the gardening, yard work, house cleaning, and heat. 
The Maca Root is Peruvian and is used to help energize and boost skin vitality. The Body Shop's Maca Root line for men really has a great clean scent and it does what it says it should, which I love. I think I may have finally convinced Ed that taking care of his skin will really help him feel a lot better and CLEANER! He may even understand my obsession with The Body Shop's products more now! 

Hurry to your local Body Shop for the perfect gift for Dad this Father's Day! Stay up to date on sales and promotions when you "Follow" or "Like' The Body Shop on Twitter and Facebook.

Right now you can score anything from The Body Shop's online store for 40% off until June 16th.

Pizza on the Grill? Yes, Please!

**I recieved this item for the purpose of a review. I was in no way compensated for my opinion as they are my own. Your opinion may vary from mine.**

Have you ever thought of grilling your pizza on the grill? Me either... until now. Jack's Pizza has come up with this great campaign called Jack's Summer Grilling to teach us all how to grill our favorite Jack's Pizzas on a gas grill. Grilling instructions are super easy so read up and enjoy!

Directions:
First preheat your grill to 400°F with the lid closed. You should be able to set your knobs at medium-low and make sure all your burners are on. Next, set the pizza directly on the center of the grate. We did two at a time and they turned out fine. Cook for 12 to 15 minutes, rotating pizza a half turn after 7-9 minutes. Six or so minutes later your pizza should be ready! Cheese will be melted and bubbling in the center and the crust will be a golden brown. 
Don't make a dumb mistake like I did when grilling your pizza. I thought for some reason that I had turned down the temperature after ignition but instead, I had left the settings on high. Duh! Our pizza was done in a matter of minutes but it was also burnt. Follow the directions closely and double check your temp if you're a space cadet like me.
After I destroyed the first two pizzas I tried again. This time I remembered to turn the temperature down. After about 15 minutes we had perfect looking pizzas! I love when my crust is crunchy so when I rolled that pizza cutter through the first pizza and heard the crunch, I was STOKED! Grilling a pizza is the best idea ever! Mmmm, it was perfectly cooked and delicious and I will be doing this again, if not everyday. ;)
Before you test this out for yourself, go to www.JacksGrilling.com for a Hot-To video, detailed cooking instructions for the grill, and a chance to win the ultimate backyard makeover! Prizes include a Jack's grilling kit, complete set of patio furniture, indoor/outdoor speakers, and a $1,000 gift card to be used towards a new grill.

Picture Your Street For Father's Day!

**I recieved this item for the purpose of a review. I was in no way compensated for my opinion as they are my own. Your opinion may vary from mine.**


Picture Your Street locates and photographs authentic US street signs featuring first names and would make a really cool gift for any Father's man cave or office. Nearly a thousand photos are already available to choose from, from common first names to the not so common name and the collection grows on a regular basis. If your name isn't featured in the gallery you can always shoot them an email for a custom request. My daughter and I both have not-so-common names but my fiancé's name was super easy to find. 

All of the framed pictures are glossy black and white 5x7" prints mounted on a foam core and matted with a white top over a black mat. Each finished picture is under glass and framed with a 3/4" matte finish black frame. All photos are framed by US professionals by hand so you know you're getting good quality products.
Pictures can be purchased in a single, double, triple, or quad photo frame and all are under $100; a great steal for any gift! Picture Your Street also has t-shirts, hats, mugs, cell phone cases, mousepads, tablet sleeves, laptop bags, and etc. so you're sure to find the perfect gift here! 

Below is the sign that was sent to us. My fiancé doesn't usually get excited about anything but he really loved his new picture. The quality of it is excellent and the resolution of the photo itself is perfect. Picture Your Street's products are shipped to perfection, as well, to ensure your picture makes it to your front door safely. 


I really love Picture Your Street's concept and their products so I will be using them in the future for gifting. Check them out and order yours in time for Father's Day. Picture Your Street would also make a great gift for all those summer weddings! Connect with Picture Your Street on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest to stay up to date on sales and new product launches.
