Win a Box Full of Treats for Your Pup

Date Wed, February 25 2015

Now, you all know that I am owned by two cats. I love them. I write about them. I share photos of them on Facebook. And while some people might think of me as a crazy cat lady, I don’t love just cats. In fact, I like dogs.

I’ve been whining about wanting my own dog for a while now. Well over a year, perhaps? Anyway, my current living situation doesn’t allow for a dog, and that’s something that eventually I’ll change.

In the mean time, I will enjoy all the pooches owned by my friends, and I can make your dog happy with giveaways like this!

This giveaway is for a box of doggie items, including treats and training goodies.

The box contains:

There’s soooo much for your dog to choose from, and it would be great if you have multiple pups in your home. I bet even picky dogs would find something they like, and you might decide one of these products are a must-have in your house!

To enter this giveaway, all you have to do is use the Gleam form below.

Best of luck!

Doggy Treat Box

Giveaway open to US residents. I will ship directly.

Ends March 23.

Cat MixMax Toy from Company of Animals

Date Tue, February 24 2015

Now, my cats have played with a few foraging toys, mostly weighted balls that they can move around. so the MixMax seemed to stupefy them a little bit.

IMAG3686_1What I like about this toy, if your cats do enjoy it, is that you can purchase more shapes and add them together to make a more complex puzzle. The easy MixMax, which is the one I received to review, works by itself, but you can up the ante if you want to train your cats or if your pets are especially smart. You can combine the easy, medium and hard for endless hours of fun. however. Each costs less than $20.

One thing I noticed was that the little treat caps could fall off the base without dropping the treats, leaving the treats stuck under them. If they were some way you could prevent that from happening so that the treats always became free, this would work better. I’m not sure how that would work though.

As for my cats? Well, I love them, but they like seem to like the weighted ball a bit better. I had to move the blocks myself to get them to replicate it. Once Phantom got the hang of it, he was able to repeat the actions with the other blocks.

To be honest, Goliath was never much into the foraging toys because Phantom tends to take over treats, so I always have to distract him to ensure Goliath gets a few treats. Goliath, despite being the bigger cat, is just more timid about treats. He might like the MixMax better if he had more alone time with it.

One thing I’m a bit stumped by is storage. The MixMax takes up more space than most cat toys I have, and I’m worried about the little block pieces becoming lost. It would be awesome if this could fold up into half the size!

If you’re interested, you can buy MixMax toys on Amazon, including one for dogs.

Throw a Mickey or Minnie Themed Party for the Ages!

Date Fri, February 20 2015

This post contains affiliate links and I will earn a small commission if you make any purchases through them.

Do you have a birthday party coming up? Perhaps it is your child’s golden birthday or you just want to make up for an otherwise crappy year. Maybe you’re the parent known for outdoing themselves every yea (I simultaneously hate and envy you LOL!). What can you do this year to make it one not soon forgotten?

Might I suggest the fun option of a Mickey Mouse or Minnie Mouse party? And let me tell you, I have some ideas for this party that you’re hosting. I just hope I get an invite!

One of the fun things you could do for your party is to hint at the theme rather than just plastering images of these iconic mice all over. For example, both Mickey and Minnie display polka dots. Minnie’s are on her dress, while Mickey’s are actually the buttons on his trousers. Yes, I just said “trousers!” LOL

So if you make cupcakes or even cookies, using fondant to cover them instead of icing would allow you to add round polka dots to them! Or, you can make a layered cake with a red and white polka dotted bottom layer and a black upper layer. Attach some Mickey ears to the top and maybe show his shoes “peeking” out from the bottom layer.

Disney Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Cupcake Stand

Disney Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Cupcake Stand

The Mickey-themed cupcake stand from Birthday Express on the right is the perfect way to display cupcakes to save space. And it’s good if you’re not an expert baker and just want to place regular cupcakes on it.

Another theme that you’ll find with Minnie Mouse party ideas is her big hair bow. It’s girly and floppy and fun! You can use a bow to connect the swag over a table skirt like you’ll see on the left. Or use bows for name tags or actual hair decorations for your party guests.

Of course, the mouse ears make for amazing decor and party favors, too. Really, all you need is three black circles to achieve the look if you’re on a budget. Imagine sticking two mini chocolate cookies into the top of your cupcakes to make mouse ears! Adorable! But you can save time and money with Mickey Mouse Party Supplies from Birthday Express. They have mouse ears head bands so everyone can get in on the fun.

In fact, I would suggest that you not forget about Mickey’s friends! Donald and Daisy and Pete and all those other Disney characters that we love so much could make a themed party into a costume party! There’s no end to the ideas. Can you imagine bringing brand-new babies into the world and dressing them up as Hewey, Duey and Louie? I can just imagine the chorus of “Awws” as you guys read this. Awww!

And, honestly, these ideas would work well for both boys and girls. You don’t need to be overly concerned about gendered parties!

Lemon Venom Slimming Formula by Beautiful Nutrition

Date Wed, February 18 2015
lemon venom slimming formula

Lemon Venom Slimming Formula

My last experience with a dietary supplement wasn’t so positive. Just under a year ago, I tried one and really saw little — if any — progress. However, I decided to give this type of product another go when I had the chance to review Beautiful Nutrition’s Lemon Venom Slimming formula supplement.

I’ll be honest, I didn’t feel much in terms of appetite control. I still became hungry on my regular schedule, and I didn’t seem any less hungry. However, taking one of these supplement pills is a great excuse for drinking a glass of water. If you’re trying to lose weight, drinking water is a must. Plus, it’s good fro your hair and skin, anyway!

Like most supplements, the capsules were a bit large, so you might have trouble if you don’t like large pills. There’s the slightest lemon taste, but mostly it was the plastic capsule taste, which I can give or take. The Amazon reviews really give the impression that the Lemon Venom drink packets aren’t very flavorful, so I think these would be the easier option.

So while I didn’t notice appetite control, did I notice any slimming? Honestly, yes! While I normally get ready for the pounds to pack on during the winter, I haven’t experienced this. If anything, I think I might be continuing weight loss I pushed for last summer. Granted, this winter has been mild and I’ve been able to continue being active, but Lemon Venom seems to have helped kick it into gear.

Now, we’re not talking losing multiple dress sizes, but all my jeans that were snug are now comfortable. The comfortable ones are getting a bit too big, and I am looking to move down a size. Can’t complain with that, right?! I did even skip some days when I first began taking the capsules because I became sick. I wish I took some before and after photos, but it totally slipped my mind.

The active ingredient in this is Garcinia Cambogia, which you’ll find in many dietary supplements. It’s best when added to a healthy diet and exercise, and it can help cut belly fat and slim your waist. You’ll likely see less impressive results if you’re not being otherwise healthy.

This might not be the product for everyone, especially if you’re avoiding caffeine. These supplements contain  100mg caffeine per serving, which is one pill daily.

Right now, you can buy Lemon Venom at Amazon as well as other retailers. Amazon sells it for $20, but you can clip a $2 coupon for greater savings.

$50 Minted Gift Code

Date Tue, February 17 2015

With Valentine’s Day and the winter holidays in the past, you might not be thinking about cards. Or, maybe you’re planning a party and shopping for invitations.

I was just shopping for some cute holiday cards, of which there are plenty. Minted changes out their stock when new seasons approach, too.
