Pretty Little Liars

Yay, it is finally furidayyyy!!! So excited even though I have a big to-do list this weekend. So a lot of shows have just had their season finales and a lot of shows are starting back up in the next 3+ days. Who is ready for the new season of Pretty Little Liars on June 8th?!?!?! Can you tell how excited I am?

   I am probably reading into this waaay too much, as usual but something just happened that reminded me of PLL. Anyone who has read the books or follows the show knows that the "villian" refers to herself or himself as "A". So anyways, I emailed my timesheet in today since it is due today and the payroll person's name starts with an "A". She usually signs/ ends her email with her name. Well today, she signed it with "A". Coincidence or not? I really am probably just reading into it too much but who knows? Maybe she watches the show?

   So in spirit of the season starting back up, I thought I'd sha…

Liquid Health K9 & Kitty Calmer

For those of you who don't know, my oldest dog, Gemma, has anxiety issues. Her main anxiety issue is with dogs she doesn't know, little furry hyper dogs, hyper dogs in general, and very dominant dogs. Now with time, some of these types of dogs are ok. Both Tigger and Audrey were very submissive when I got them and in time they have become more dominant. And Gemma is perfectly ok with that because she knows them (duh, they live with her) and she has even accepted that Audrey is pretty much the alpha of the group now.

   Gemma lived a rough life before I adopted her and she was in 2 different shelters. Too many dogs barking at once really makes her anxious, as does when a little furry dog is running around really fast (she used to live with a small furry dog in her previous home who was not very nice).

   I have tried numerous anxiety aids with her, from tablets to anxiety wraps- you name it. And then Liquid Health developed a product for anxiety in dogs and cats. Just when I…

Petite Plus Super Weight Loss Supplement- for Women!

I have pretty much always struggled with my weight. Even when I was 13 and only 100 lbs, I always had at least some sort of insecurity with my weight or how my body looked. I also was bullied and harassed about my weight, as well as many other things, in high school. Girls used to say I was anorexic and even when I gained just a little bit of weight, they'd start rumors that I was pregnant or something. I could never win. But I've learned to love my body and am still working on that everyday.

   My weight has always been up and down. And I do truly believe that it is more difficult for women to lose weight than men. Our bodies are built differently. That's why I was ecstatic when Petite Plus wanted to partner up with me and allow me to test out their new super weight loss supplement which is specifically designed for WOMEN.

   Petite Plus' weight loss supplement is 100% natural. It is an appetite supplement and is designed to improve your mood and energy levels.


Weekend Recap

Oh good Lord, it feels like a Monday- and kind of is Monday for those of us who were off for the holiday yesterday. I definitely could have used an extra 4-8 hours of sleep this morning and my back is killing me! My weekend wasn't very eventful and in no way did it include cookouts. I did the usual errands and worked on cleaning and prepping two rooms for carpet installation for tomorrow. I still have a ways to go and really need to start packing and deep cleaning. I'm trying to get my house on the market by the end of next month but we'll see.

   So yesterday I finally did the whole "dog shaming" thing. Audrey has definitely ruined a few things in the short time she has been with me but hey, she's still a puppy and she is a bulldog and bulldogs are usually chewers. She chewed up my older pair of Vans maybe a month or two ago and then chewed the heel of my other pair of Vans yesterday. But it is my fault for leaving them on the floor where she was while I …

Give Your Legs a Little TLC

Ah, I am loving this warmer weather. Now that the snow and freezing cold is gone, it's time to show a little leg. If any of you are like me, most of the time in the winter (especially if I don't have a significant other) I just let my leg hair be- with maybe an occasional shave here and there. But now it's time to break out the capris, shorts, skirts, and swimwear and show off your beautiful (probably pale) stems.

   You do not want to be the girl that is showcasing her hairy legs and bikini line in public- especially if you happen to run into an attractive guy or girl. So I'm going to let you in on my little secret weapon I use to keep my legs smooth and hair free. It's Schick Hydro Silk TrimStyle. This isn't just your ordinary razor. The hydro silk trim style is both a razor and a bikini trimmer. But my favorite part about this razor is the hypoallergenic moisturizing serum. I have very sensitive dry red skin. So I'm loving the fact that my legs are ge…

Live Carefree, Period. #refreshvoxbox

Ok ladies, let's get real. Your period is not the highlight of your month (unless you're afraid you are pregnant and do not want to be pregnant at that time in your life). You feel bloated, crampy, and moody. Not to mention the worry of what if it bleeds through your bottoms- especially when you are expecting it and it hasn't come yet and you have a meeting or something important where you can't just keep checking yourself (but who wants to have to check themselves anyway?). And in times like these, you don't want to use a pad or tampon because it hasn't come yet and the fact that using one of these before Aunt Flow makes her appearance is just wasting money.

   But have no fear, Carefree is here. Carefree body shape panty liners are my absolute go to panty liner. They are small, compact, and portable which makes them easy to tuck into your purse , wallet, or even your pocket. Not only are they easy to take with you, they are crafted into a unique shape that…

Another Pet Giftbox

Oh my Lord, it is almost Friday!!! Phew, I thought it would never get here. So I think my emotional state is pretty much back to normal? I feel abnormally chill but also feel like I'm brain dead. Like occasionally my mind will race with thoughts that I constantly have thought about in the past week but other than that, I feel like an air head.

   I had a Multiple Sleep Latency test which is a sleep study that is during the day to test for Narcolepsy. Don't really know how that went. I had to take 4 naps that were 15-30 minutes long and in between the naps I had to stay up for like 1-2 hours. So while awake, I sat up (because you're not allowed to lay down) in the bed and watched some old Sweet 16 episodes and old Law & Order: SVU episodes. I developed a migraine while there and had bad neck and back pain. I don't know if I actually slept during the naps. My eyes were closed, it sounded like I was sleeping, but I could still "hear" myself thinking? I do…

Losing My Mind

Oh good Lord, is it really Monday again? Yep. I don't even know where to begin. I feel like I'm losing my mind. Well, I mean I feel a little better today- or at least for right now but who knows how long that will last? It's always different when you have Bipolar Disorder (and of course it's different depending on what type of Bipolar you have). Lately I feel like my emotional state has spiraled out of control. And that can happen when you have Bipolar. I have been feeling really low and I can't remember the last time I felt this low- maybe 2 or 3 years ago, possibly, I don't know. Between my anxiety making me so on edge, my depression pulling me down deep below, and my mind going so crazy that I feel like I literally can't even think a single thought... it's exhausting.

   I'm not sure why this is happening right now but that's what happens. Shit happens. Bipolar episodes can creep up on you at any moment in your life. I have been stressed o…

Hope this Makes You Laugh a Little

Ah, Monday is over. One day closer to Friday. While browsing Yahoo!, as usual, I came across this article (about home improvement fails) and each picture made me laugh. Yahoo! Makers


Weekend Recap

Ugh it is Monday again... damn it. Sooo, I'm sorry I have been a little MIA lately. I have had so much stress and anxiety lately- my mind is going crazy! Plus, I am trying to get a few more things done to my house and try to get it on the market sometime next month. I'm going to try to do a little more blogging but it is probably going to be somewhat quiet around here for at least the next month.

   Anyway, yesterday was Mother's Day. Happy belated Mother's Day to all of the moms and fur moms out there! Not only was yesterday Mother's Day, but it also happened to be my mom's birthday. Don't worry mom, I won't let everyone know your age. Every few years her birthday falls on Mother's Day, which I think is pretty cool. I seriously do not know what I would do without my mom and I owe everything to her. She has helped me out so much and helped me put my life back together when it had completely fallen apart. Mom, I love you so much and I can't th…
