Fitness Watch

 photo DSC_0021_zpse8a1e4bd.jpg

This is the very first fitness watch that I have ever owned.  Thanks to LifeTrack Move C300 for giving out samples of this product.  I was even more excited when I found out that they would let me review and keep it as well.

I first saw this kind of watch from one of my friends on Facebook.  Since then I have been admiring this gadget.  I find it really cool and useful for me, especially during the summer season when I do a lot of outdoor activities.  I have this watch for over a year now but I have yet to use the apps that go with it so it would be easier for me to keep track of my daily activities.  I have been using it though on a regular basis since I received it.

This LifeTrack Move C300 syncs with Argus and MapMyFitness apps.  Since I don’t have a smartphone, I did not even bother to check those apps.  Now that I think about them, maybe they will work on my desktop computer.

This fitness watch is like the size of a regular watch that you can easily wear on your wrist.  It displays the miles you traveled, the calories you burned and the number of steps you took, in addition to the time and date features it has.  The device also allows you to graph your stats on an hourly, daily, weekly or per workout basis whichever you prefer.  To top it all off, it also monitors your heart rate.

Sports Teams Attire For Infants and Toddlers

A Fun Way to Show Team Support

Getting school-aged children enrolled in sports is a healthy way to get them involved in their community and in socializing with their peers. Parents who promote sports to their kids are usually sports enthusiasts themselves. And sports-minded parents not only love sports, they also love clothing related to their favorite teams. What’s more, they enjoy dressing their pets and even their youngest children with team-related clothing. It is a fun way to show fan support.

All Sports Teams are Represented

To be sure, sports attire on little ones always bring on a smile and inspire family members to bring out the camera. Seeing even the youngest infant ‘supporting’ a team is nothing short of charming, and often the ideal subject matter for family greeting cards.

The popularity and passion for sports have inspired a number of websites devoted to sports attire for infants and toddlers. Basketball, baseball, hockey and football teams are all duly represented. Nowadays, colorful jerseys, onesies, sleepers, pajamas and much more are available for infant and toddler girls and boys.

Authentic Team-Sponsored Items

Sites like babyfans.com, for example, feature an exciting line of quality baby sports apparel. You will find authentic team-sponsored clothing for sports organizations like the NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA and NCAA. You will discover delightfully charming articles like:

Bodysuits
Rompers
Polo Shirts
Puffy Vests
Dress with Bloomers
Tutu Dress
Baseball caps
Pacifiers
Beanies
Bathrobes
And More!

You will see many items on clearance sale, selling for much less than their normal retail price.

Sports Team Articles for All Seasons

You will find thousands of items for babies and toddlers, all of them adorable and manufactured with quality materials. Every professional and NCAA team is represented with team logos or familiar sayings. There are items for warm seasons as well as winter seasons.

If you are one of those individuals who love sports and want to pass on your passion to your children at their youngest age, there are websites on which you can easily score.

Stylish Yet Inexpensive Sunglasses

sunglassesI am a thrifty shopper. I always look for discounted or inexpensive stuff but with value.

The first time I heard about stylish yet inexpensive prescription eyeglasses, I was not convinced. I thought it was too good to be true but after being a constant visitor to the Zenni Optical website, I decided to give them a try. Actually it was my hubby who encouraged me to do so.

The pair of prescription sunglasses pictured above are the ones that I decided to buy from Zenni.

Zenni Optical offers a variety of styles ranging from $6.95 to more than $40 per pair. I paid only $17.90 including shipping & handling for mine. I have already bought another pair from them and plan to buy more in the future. Their products are much better than the ones that I bought at a nearby store for more than 5X the price. They went far beyond my expectations. I am 100% satisfied.

In today’s tough economic times, every penny counts. Personally, why would I go somewhere else when I can buy high quality prescription eyeglasses at Zenni Optical for less. I know it is hard to believe that they are such a bargain but you should give them a try. Zenni Optical has a wide variety of glasses that you can choose from in different styles and colors.

Bladder Supports for Women #TryImpressa


 photo DSC_0009_zpsjdk6cixb.jpg
I know someone dear to me who deals with urinary incontinence. She experiences bladder leakage when she laughs hard and also when she coughs.  I spoke with her yesterday and told her that I would be sending her a few boxes of Poise Impressa.  She is very excited about giving it a try. She has been dealing with this problem for many years now and I think it has gotten worse now that she is getting older.

Urinary Incontinence is a problem for many women and sometimes prevents them from enjoying active and fulfilling lives. The new revolutionary Poise Impressa can help manage the stress urinary incontinence. According to a study, 9 out of 10 women said their bladder leakage was reduced or even completely stopped with Poise Impressa bladder supports. That is a very encouraging statistic.

If you have problems when you laugh, cough, sneeze, dance or exercise, you should give Poise Impressa a try. Here’s a $2.00 off Poise Impressa coupon for you to print. You should start with the sizing kit to find which size you find most comfortable. The Impressa sizing kit comes in three different sizes (1,2,3).  Inside the kit, you will find a $4 coupon for your next Poise Impressa purchase.  Each kit includes six bladder supports, two of each size. You should start with size 1.  If it feels comfortable and you have little or no urine leaks then size 1 is the right size for you.  If size 1 does not feel comfortable and you still experience leakage, continue to try the next larger size until you find the size that is right for you.

Impressa looks like a tampon but it is not. You can learn more about it at www.impressa.com.

Bold Skincare: Beauty Companies Harness 3D Printers for Humane Goals

In today’s 3D printing gold rush, tiny startups and large companies are both competing over the next big idea. From the medical world to the restaurant business, there always seems to be a clever way for 3D printers to revolutionize the game. Even the cosmetics industry has gotten involved, with young entrepreneurs touting “3D-printed makeup,” beauty giants experimenting with printable skin, and companies testing out biodegradable packaging. All in all, beauty and technology seem to be a formidable combo.

Testing on Printed Skin

Traditionally, makeup and skincare products have been tested on animals before any humans try them. In the past, this controversial practice was the only way for beauty companies to ensure their products were safe, but animal rights groups banded together to ban testing in the European Union and a few other countries around the world.

Starting in the 80s, the L’Oreal beauty corporation worked around this law by using leftover plastic surgery samples to see how their products looked on different skin tones and age brackets. Now, the company has embraced 3D printing technology for their latest project: printing skin samples from scratch. In the same way that doctors are using 3D printed skin to treat burn victims, L’Oreal expects their version of skin production will be fully operational by 2020. Once they’ve perfected it, 3D printers will allow the company to avoid harming animals and still know how their products will behave on human skin.

Instant Makeup

Although this might not qualify as 3D printing tech, two new startups have come up with devices that wouldn’t be out of place on a futuristic vanity. Here’s the basic concept: find a picture of anyone whose makeup you admire, upload it to the design app, and let the printer figure out how to replicate that look on your own face. Then, place your face in front of the device’s opening and wait for 30 seconds; the printer will apply a primer, foundation, and color in that brief time. It might seem a little frightening to entrust your face to an ominous-looking machine, but eventually the technology could become part of daily life. For women who like accenting their natural beauty with makeup, but hate how long it takes to apply, a makeup printer could save them hours every week.

More Sustainable Packaging

Cosmetics packaging isn’t easy to recycle. The small tubes, tubs, and tiny bottles usually end up in landfills, and the beauty industry has been trying to change that. 3D printers may offer the answer: when small business owner Anita Redd lost her packaging supplier, she decided to make a 3D-printed jar for her lip balm product. Her company’s ethos was all about all-natural ingredients, so the biodegradable container reflected that well. As larger companies adopt 3D-printed packaging methods for their international products, we may see a drastic reduction in plastic waste. Consumers want to buy products that they know won’t harm the environment, and now, the beauty industry is finally starting to catch up.

What’s in my Toiletry Bag? #BringComfyBack


The summer season is my favorite time of the year here in northern Minnesota.  The temperatures are not too hot nor too cold for someone like me who grew up in the tropical country the Philippines.  Now that the summer season is coming to an end and before the fall season finally sets in, my hubby and I are going to take a trip out west to visit my sister and my hubby’s grand daughter.  The trip comes at a perfect time with the gas prices plunging across the nation.   photo DSC_0021_zpshrixtxng.jpg
It will be a long drive for us and I want to make sure that everything that I need gets packed well ahead of time.  My toiletry bag is cute (compared to my hubby’s) but it can nicely fit the stuff that I need.  A few panty liners from U by Kotex are a must.  I don’t like surprises from Mother Nature and to save myself from embarrassment, I need to safely pack panty liners and my favorite pair of undies before hitting the road.  That’s the first order of business when packing things for a long road trip, especially since it will be a ten day trip or more. I don’t want to leave the house for an extended period of time without panty liners and other basic toiletry needs.

The graphic prints are also cute.  For girls, panty liners are a basic necessity, so get a $1 off coupon for your next liners purchase here.

The grand winner will receive a trip to L.A. with a girlfriend, an exclusive U by Kotex photo shoot to be their new social star and $2,000 spending cash!
