Petco For Animal Costumes

We have a few animals here.  We have always had animals.  But when I was a kid dressing them up meant putting doll clothing on them.  Well, now a days pets can have their own costumes.

I received a huge assortment of costumes from Petco for a review.  Some for cats and some for the dog.  The kids had a blast playing with them all.

petco 1

This is Booker.  The kids got the biggest kick in the world out of dressing him up like a unicorn ballerina princess (what they called him).  He loves attention and had no problem letting them dress him up. It even looks like he is smiling in the picture.

We dressed our cat in the same unicorn headband and tutu too.IMG_0341 The cats also loved this toy.  The little green circles slide around and need to get batted or pushed out of place to show the cat treat hidden underneath.IMG_0339

My own little one thought it was funny to try on the viking hat.  It even has red braids coming down the sides.

petco 2We also received some dog and cat toys as well as a Petco Halloween Bootique 2014 Lookbook.  It is full of costume ideas for pets with prices.

Dressing up pets is now easier than ever with Petco’s fabulous line of costumes.

Bulu Box- Feel Good

Bulu Box sent out this awesome Feel-Good Discovery box packed full of awesome teas, snacks and more.

I received many cool things in the box.  This Raw Protein formula is something I’d never tried.  It is great for the blender, mixed with water or milk.  An easy way to get lots of protein as well as other vitamins. IMG_0312

The Good Bean Roasted Chickpeas with Sea Salt are a great snack for after exercising or to keep in the car.  The bag is only 0.75 ozs so stores easily in gym bag or glove box. With 4g of fiber and 4g of protein it is a health snack as well.  The QuestBar is another great protein source.  This chocolate chip cookie dough bar has 3g of fiber and only 21 carbs. It tastes great too.IMG_0311

happy Hour aren’t something I’ll use but are a great way to try to prevent a hang over for those that drink.  Breath mint plus vitamins and electrolytes mixed in one for a happy morning.IMG_0310

I’d never heard of this before but it tasted good.  This RUNA tea is great for focused energy. containing caffeine and antioxidants it has a sweet taste and is easy to make.IMG_0309

Cook Healthy At Home With Blue Apron

Blue Apron Brought Fresh & Healthy Meals To My Front Door

I love the food and prep items I received to make three fabulous meals, at home, with Blue Apron.  I’d never heard of Blue Apron and wasn’t sure how much I’d get or how to do it all.  But everything, 100% was included for the meals.  Recipe cards, meat, veggies, seasoning, special ‘how to’ instructions for harder things, even the serving size and number of calories.

Everything arrived in a box with three layers of ice packs.  It was 100% cold and in excellent condition.

IMG_0256

It all came labeled.  Some were funny, since I know what something like a carrot is.  Others were totally useful, since I had no idea what some items were, like a Chayote squash, Pattypan squash or Cervil.

IMG_0259

 

 

 

 

 

I received three meats, cod fillets, ground beef and boneless, skinless chicken breasts.

IMG_0261

 

The box even has the random ingredients, in case I didn’t have at home, like shallots, coconut vinegar, soy sauce and parchment sheets.

IMG_0262

I followed the instructions and set out to make these recipes.  I got my tools out, pulled my hair back and had a go at it.  I was a bit intimidated by some things, like cooking bulgur, since I never had before, or cooking in parchment paper, since that was a first too.  IMG_0265

I just kept rereading the instructions and figuring it all out.  The pictures on the recipe cards really helped.IMG_0266Everything came together nicely.  Kids enjoyed the food and it was a great dinner.  Only down side was the number of dishes we had.  But that beats eating out any day.

IMG_0267

This is Filipino-Style Beef Picadillo

with Chayote Squash & Jasmine RiceIMG_0274 This is Pan-Seared Chicken & Sauteed Bulgur

with Tomato Salad & Creamy Lemon-Yogurt SauceIMG_0276I made the third recipe the following night, but forgot to take pictures.  It was Cod & Pattypan Squash En Papillote with Garlic Butter & Fresh Herb Salad.  It came out wonderfully wtih lots of moisture and flavor.

Blue Apron also has ‘cook alongs’ with their chefs.  Easy way to watch them make the meal while you follow along.

FlorastorKids Review & #Giveaway

Disclosure: I am part of the PTPA Brand Ambassador Program with Florastor and I received compensation as part of my affiliation with this group. The opinions on this blog are my own.

Having a good balance in the body is important. This isn’t only for eating healthy food and limiting sweets and junk food. It is more about balance when our body gets out of wack. I’ve felt this way when I’ve been sick and other times when I’ve eaten some ‘trigger foods’ that bother my acid reflux. After it is triggered my stomach is sensitive to everything and I feel like I have to prop myself up to go to sleep. Well, I found a way to balance my stomach and digestive system. This isn’t only for me. My kids can use it as well.

Florastor_USpckg_family2_900px_shadow

FlorastorKids is a yeast-based probiotic supplement that contains 250 mg of the probiotic strain Saccharomyces boulardii lyo, a natural yeast found on the skin of tropical fruits, lychees and mangosteens. Children can’t always tell when their body feels out of balance. Sometimes having a stomach bug, like the flu, can make the whole digestive system off track. FlorastorKids can be used for children 2-months-old and older and adults too. Have a hard time swallowing pills? FlorastorKids makes it simple. It comes in a small travel-sized packet that can be mixed with water or juice. It is in a pleasant tutti-fruitti flavor powder.

My family is rarely on antibiotics, which can mess up the body’s digestive system. When I was younger I always thought yeast in the body was bad, hearing the term ‘yeast infection.’ Little did I know that it is important to have the balance of yeast in the stomach as a good bacteria.

Some facts about FlorastorKids:

  • Vegetarian and gluten-free.
  • Does not require refrigeration.
  • Is not compromised by antibiotic use.
  • Helps maintain balance of healthy intestinal bacteria.
  • Available in over 100 Countries.

So, if you have a small kid that has been sick, teens or even adults. Make sure you get Florastor or FlorastorKids to get their stomach back on track to being healthy and balanced.
