Celebrate the 4th of July With MADiL Flip Flops

Independence Day, commonly known as the 4th of July, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from Great Britain. Now that you've had your mini history lesson for the day, you probably already know that the 4th of July is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, picnics/barbecues, carnivals/fairs, family reunions, concerts, baseball games, political speeches and ceremonies....and don't forget the colors red, white, and blue everywhere.  

On this day, you'll probably see more people wearing red, white, and blue than any other day of the year. You'll see plenty of red, white, and blue T-shirts, hats, and even shorts and mothers of little girls will don them in red, white, and blue tulle tutus with matching ribbons in their hair. But what about footwear? Why can't it be red, white, and blue also?

MADiL can fix this dilemma and help you celebrate the USA in patriotic fashion with their USA Combo, which includes a pair of white flip flops (includes 4 gray bands and MADiL's signature "M" charm) 2 red bands, 2 navy bands, and 1 USA flag charm, for only $12.99. Additional colored bands and charms can be purchased separately, such as the Star charm or the Sparkle Charms Set, and you can customize your flip flops however you like.

And as always, MADiL will donate $1 for every pair of flip flops purchased to help fund cleft repair surgeries for children worldwide.

So show your patriotic side this 4th of July and purchase a pair of flip flops at MADiL and help make a difference in life by helping fund a cleft repair surgery for a child in need in the process.

Review of Amazingly Beautiful Body Moisturizer And Revitalizer {and Giveaway}

I've already reviewed Amazingly Beautiful A.M. Moisturizer and P.M. Revitalizer and now I've been given the opportunity to try out Amazingly Beautiful Body Moisturizer and Revitalizer. Did you know that your skin is your body's largest organ? Well it is and it craves pure nourishing ingredients that help it to maintain a healthy youthful glow, smoothness, elasticity, and resistance to wrinkles and damage. I try my very best to take excellent care of my skin and only use products that are good for it. Amazingly Beautiful Body Moisturizer and Revitalizer contains no preservatives, parabens, petrochemicals, synthetic ingredients, fragrances, GMO's, dyes or additives of any kind. The only ingredients include 100% pure botanical oils of orange, almond, lime, lemon, olive, and avocado. 

In my opinion, it seems to me that orange is the predominant scent. The scent is very natural and I think it smells fantastic by the way. It's easy to apply and feels great on my skin. It seems to moisturize deep down and quickly without making it feel greasy. I like using it after I shower as it makes my skin feel rejuvenated but I also like using it in the morning time as well because of the nice warm, healthy, sun kissed glow it gives my skin. It has also done a great job at smoothing out the rough, scaly patch of skin on one of my elbows, which no other product has seemed to be able to do. 

I love how beautiful Amazingly Beautiful Body Moisturizer and Revitalizer makes my skin look and feel. My skin always feels soft and moisturized with a healthy glow. It just feels plain good. It truly is an amazing product. Did you know it can also be used as an underarm deodorant and can decrease the appearance of spider veins and blemishes too? Amazing right!

National Medical Transcription Week 2015 Celebration

For the third year in a row, I made my co-workers gift bags to celebrate our (in my opinion) under appreciated profession within the healthcare community, medical transcription. For  National Medical Transcription Week 2015 (May 17-23), I found 11 awesome sponsors who were willing to donate products for the gift bags. I've already reviewed these products on my blog recently but I just wanted to give these sponsors one final big THANK YOU for their generosity. 

A gift bag wouldn't be complete without snacks, candy, sweets, or something that can be munched on so Angie's BOOMCHICKAPOP donated some of their snacks and everyone received either a bag of puffs or popcorn. Original Gourmet also donated mini lollipops bags and Cox's Honey donated tubs of creamed honey. Little Obsessed donated Food & Fitness Mini Journals, which we'll all definitely need after this week of celebrating. For us to pamper ourselves, Vitabath donated some samples of their body washes and Come Clean donated Pop Culture Soaps, which can be used on dogs as well. Everyone can appreciate a nice personalized gift and Glass With a Twist donated some heavy duty personalized beer mugs that we'll be able to use for years to come and Gotcha Covered Notebooks donated everyone their very own personalized notebook. A couple of very talented ladies also donated some handmade items. Silly Mama Quilts donated some handmade Mug Rugs, which can be used for all sorts of things, and Grandma's Little Lilly donated some handmade lanyards, which of course with us working in the healthcare industry are very useful.

And finally, my most generous donation came from MADiL (Make a Difference in Life) who donated everyone $20 gift cards to their site toward the purchase of flip flops which can be customized with bands and charms. I presented the gift cards in organza bags that I won from Evermine and I stuffed everything in some hibiscus print tote bags that I bought from Amazon. Everyone was very impressed with the gift bags this year and loved everything inside. I can't even begin to thank the sponsors enough for their generous donations, making these the most impressive gift bags yet. 

Also during the week we had a carry-in, as well as an ice cream social. These are always great ways to celebrate and they gave us the opportunity to all sit down together and enjoy each other's company, which we rarely have the opportunity to do. 

All in all, my co-workers and I had a nice week celebrating our profession and as always their favorite day of the week was gift bag day so I'd once again like to thank all the wonderful sponsors who donated items and made these gift bags possible this year. 

Do you do similar celebrations at your workplace? How do you celebrate?

The How-To-Guide on Wearing a Basic Teethat’s Handmade, Independent or Otherwise COOL {and a 9th and Elm Giveaway}

We all know you can wear a tee shirt with basic leggings or denim, but what are the other cool ways to wear your favorite boyfriend tees and tanks!? I’ve got some ideas that can help you put some outfits together, or recognize some pieces missing in your wardrobe that you need stat!

The Sequin Maxi Skirt: Tuck that tee into the maxi skirt and blouse it a little. Also throw on a statement necklace with this look, so it balances out the loud sequin skirt and the tee shirt being so opposite of one another. A statement necklace isn't 100 percent necessary, but see how it looks. Purchase the I Have Nothing to Wear Tee here.

The Leather Mini Skirt: Throw this on with some tall pumps, and girl you are good to go! Leave it tucked in or let it out. I like both the polished and un-clean look here, so try both to see how you feel hotter! Purchase the But First, COFFEE Tee here.

The Cigarette Skinny-Legged Pant: You want to make sure these pants are tight, tight, tight, so the tee shirt is the only thing blousy here. Try it with a crop top, or a regular-fitted tee is perfect with this pant-look. Love it with a POP of color with the heels here. Try the cobalt blue like I did. Purchase the Hide Your Crazy & Act Like a Lady Tee here.

The Accordion Maxi Skirt: Much like how we styled the maxi sequin skirt, you can do the same for this look. Love the POP of color with the accordion maxi skirt here. Think it adds a lot to the tank giving it a dressier look with heals or a dressed down look with nice sandals. This look would also be great with a bright pink lip. Purchase the Wild Spirit Tank here.

The Boyfriend Jean: I love a good distressed boyfriend jean. Make sure to tight-roll those jeans, yes I said tight-roll like the 80’s (roll them high enough so they almost look like a capri skinny jean), and put on some baller heals with this look. Preferably a pump or one with an ankle strap and you could also add a blazer to complete this look.Purchase the Be YOU TifulTee here.

The Skater Skirt: This is a great look to have more fun with the tank. Try knotting it to the side or in the back and show a little skin. The bottom is so fun and flirty, why not flirt it up with the top too! Purchase the Drink Russian, Drive German, Wear Italian, Kiss French here.

Dressy Shorts: Put away those denim shorts for now ladies and gents, and let’s add a flouncy pair of shorts, or sequin, lace, to add some texture to the tee.While you’re at it, throw on some platform wedges to make sure those legs are looking long and lean! It’s the perfect tee to wear out with the girls to the bar, or out with your man. Purchase the Moon Shine Tee here.

Colored Jeans:It’s spring, after all, which means we need some color in our lives after all that drab black and dark colors in the winter that float around our closet. So let’s add that POP of color with our bottoms. Whether that means jeans or shorts, it doesn’t matter. Whatever you feel like that day, let it shine with your new tee or tank. Don’t have any colored denim, try white jeans too! Purchase the Rock Me Mama Like a Wagon Wheel Tank here.

So stop wearing your tee like everyone else, and let’s jazz it up this spring! But first, you need a cool tee that screams you. Try out these tanks and tees this spring and bring your personality out with not only the top, but the bottoms too.

Review of Hill's Ideal Balance Crafted Canned Dog Food

Chewy.com recently sent my two dogs, Tyson and Crook, a case of Hill's Ideal Balance Crafted Simmered Chicken Stew with Quinoa Canned Dog Food to try. Ideal Balance Crafted canned foods are very nutritious for your dog. They are slow cooked in small batches. They have three varieties available, simmered chicken stew with Quinoa, beef stew, and braised salmon medley with Quinoa. The chicken stew is made with shredded natural chicken in a mouthwatering gravy and other thoughtfully sourced, authentic ingredients, including carrots, potatoes, green peas, spinach, Quinoa Seed, Flaxseed, apples, broccoli, and zucchini. It is is gluten free and supports healthy digestion. It contains no corn, wheat, or soy and also contains no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. 

No can opener is required to open the cans, which is always convenient and very much appreciated. I have to admit that for dog food, it looks pretty tasty, and it's probably more nutritious than most things my family and I typically eat. It doesn't really look or smell like typical canned dog food at all. I love that the vegetables aren't just listed in the ingredients, but they are actually visible in the dog food itself. My dogs seemed to really love this dog food and they ate it all up very quickly. They seemed to digest it well and it didn't seem to bother their tummies at all. All you have to do is take one look at this Ideal Balance canned dog food and you can tell that Hill's has your pets best interest in mind. It's even made in the USA.

Hill's Ideal Balance Crafted Canned Dog Food and other Hill's pet products are available at Chewy.com.

COVERGIRL Can Help You Steal the Spotlight

In my opinion, COVERGIRL is a brand that simply needs no introduction. COVERGIRL is one of the most iconic beauty brands ever. COVERGIRL was the very first makeup brand that I was introduced to by my mother when I first started wearing makeup as a tween and I still use their products today as a 30-year-old woman, as I'm sure many of you ladies can relate. COVERGIRL recently sent me a couple of their products to help me take my glam into overdrive and help me steal the spotlight. 

Allure Magazine's Beauty Editors are raving about COVERGIRL's Super Sizer by LashBlast Mascara. This mascara is opthalmologically tested (and suitable for those who wear contact lenses) to give you 400% more corner-to-corner volume for full, fanned out lashes. Have small lashes? Just a twirl of the amazing Lash Styler will give you an instantly Super Sized lash look. I  found it easy to apply and it did a wonderful job at giving my lashes instant volume. I think they looked fabulous. It doesn't clump or smudge throughout the day and at the end of the day it comes off easily with a makeup remover wipe. 

I've never been that good at applying liquid eyeliner and I tend to avoid it for this reason but I thought I'd give COVERGIRL's Intensify Me! Eyeliner by LashBlast anyway. The intense black formula is clinically tested and suitable for sensitive eyes. The new paddle-shaped tip is made to give you two looks in one, thick and dramatic or thin and elegant. It was easy enough to apply and went on rather smoothly. It definitely added a lot of definition to my eyes. I was surprised that it dried so quickly and it didn't smudge. It also came off easily at the end of the day with a makeup remover wipe. I think that once I perfect my technique when applying this eyeliner, it's going to be one of my favorite COVERGIRL products.   

I'm no makeup artist but I was able to create a couple of everyday looks that I was happy with using the Super Sizer by LashBlast Mascara and the Intensify Me! Eyeliner by LashBlast. I know I still need a lot of practice using the eyeliner, but what do you think? COVERGIRL's YouTube channel has lots of tutorials on how to apply different types of makeup but any of your tips would be much appreciated as well.
