What exactly is this? The mysterious fruit...

LOL, so my family went grocery shopping today...saw a bunch of people shopping and hovering over this fruit and decided it looked neat and wanted to try it too. And here we are now, just wondering what it is. What would we do without a little bit of mystery in our lives? ;)

Teensavers Drug Screening Guest Post and Review

We all know that this is a sensitive subject but in my honest opinion, I support this cause. Now, I'm not telling you to go buy a kit and force your kid to take the test but I have just seen too much in my own life and even in the hospitals in my career so far. So I paired up with Teensavers to do this post. Read the guest post done by Teensavers Drug Test creator and president of Teensaver Diagnostics, Steve Stahovich. He has been through the experience and has been able to fight off his addictions and now uses his past experiences to help others.

Dr. Sear's Zone 1-2-3 Diet Review

As a health care professional, I have always tried to eat healthy. However, let’s face it, with the hours I already have, eating properly really isn’t an option sometimes. Plus, I love staying fit and losing some excess weight is also part of the plan.  I stay as active as I can, playing tennis and other sports whenever I get a chance or taking my dog for a brisk walk or run. Unfortunately, that just doesn’t cut it. I absolutely despise working hard to lose weight and then becoming utterly disappointed when I gain it right back over a period of time. This is when I learnt about Zone Diet created by Dr. Barry Sears, leading authority on the dietary control of hormonal response.

Broken iPhone 4? Cracked Screen?

I was taking my "baby" (my precious dog for those of you who aren't familiar) out for a walk the other day when the unfortunate happened! My cell, my beautiful, without a scratch, iPhone 4, which I had always been so careful with, decided it wanted to fall out of my pocket. Needless to say, it cracked the screen, even with a protective cover on it! and it was such a short drop!! I was crushed and was really upset because it was my lifeline. There were 4-5 cracks extending about halfway through the screen. Then I had a decision to make...

For those of you who love Bath and Body Works and I must admit I'm guilty, there's currently a 20% off code that is valid until tomorrow so you can stock up! This is also the time where they have summer savings and so there are products up to 75% off already so I'd imagine you could save a pretty penny.

Children's CD and DVD Review: The Dirty Sock Funtime Band

So, I've definitely had my share of exposure to dirty socks but this was the first time I was exposed to the Dirty Sock Funtime Band. This band is an outgrowth of Kids Creative, which is an incredibly successful New York City after-school program in which schoolchildren can write and perform original rock and roll musicals. The band was writing music for the Kids Creative classes and parents were so impressed that they encouraged the Dirty Sock Funtime Band to release their music to the world.  I am ecstatic they did and so will you.
