Doggy Loot

doggyloot 300

We all love our animals, and we only want the best for them, but it’s quite expensive, isn’t it? Yes, I know from experience. I went to the pet store when we got our dog Flower, and it was way too expensive. That’s why if I can find a coupon, or if I see a good deal, I’m going to take whatever I can get to save some money.

Happy Camper

Patch Pile

I was in the Cub Scouts when I was 9 years old back in 1979. There wasn’t a controversy about gays in the Boy Scouts way back then like there is these days. I was going to try to become a Boy Scout, but I ended up quitting the Cub Scouts because they were giving me too much homework. As if school wasn’t tough enough for a boy with a learning disability, now I had more homework? No thank you! So I quit.

These days I’m reminiscing about what might have been and what if. No badges for me, until now.

I definitely want some of these LGBT merit badges from Happy Camper. They would make great gifts for gay men, am I right?

I so want to make an adult sized Cub Scout uniform and put some of these badges on it. Hey, check me out. My mother was making sure I looked good. This is me when I was 9 years old in the Cub Scouts. Good times.

Wedding Gowns at DressFirst

Ball-Gown Sweetheart Cathedral Train Satin Wedding Dress With Embroidery Ruffle Beadwork

I am not much of a wedding person.  I have been to 3 weddings in my entire life.  My mother’s wedding to my step father, my high school “girlfriend’s” sister’s wedding and my friends Chris and Steve, that’s it.

I actually like weddings because of 2 things, 1 I’m socializing and 2 uh… hello…  CAKE!  There is nothing better than a good wedding cake.  We just got marriage equality here in California and I am very excited about that.

DressFirst has some of the best looking wedding gowns that I have ever seen.  They have such a huge selection, 1544 as of this posting in fact, and you can narrow down your search so it isn’t overwhelming.  You can even choose the color of the dress once you have picked a style.  They show images from many angles so you know exactly what you are getting.  They look like a million bucks, but all at very reasonable prices.

A-Line/Princess Scoop Neck Knee-Length Chiffon Bridesmaid Dress Don’t worry brides maids, they have you covered too with 845 results.  You have plenty of styles to choose from and they don’t look embarrassing at all.  In fact, I bet you will be able to wear them to any event after the wedding, even if you are just going to dinner.  They even have little black dresses, evening dresses and cocktail dresses.

They have wedding party dresses for the flower girl, mother of the bride, bridesmaid, junior bridesmaid and even maternity bridesmaids.  They also have dresses for your wedding guests, so you can refer your guests to this website as well.  They have something for almost everyone.  I say almost everyone because I didn’t see anything for the men.

Personalized Love Design Crystal Items Cake TopperDressFirst has many other products from shoes to cake toppers to party supplies.  They have you covered for everything you are shopping for.  They may not have everything, yeah I looked for the gay and lesbian cake toppers, they didn’t have them, but they did have other things like hearts and personalized crystal cake toppers.  You can use your imagination.

So if you are getting married soon, be sure to check out DressFirst.

DealDash

DealDash_logo

I have heard of DealDash, but haven’t tried it yet because I am sure I would probably get addicted and go crazy with it, to be honest lol.  If you don’t know what DealDash is, it’s an auction site where you buy bids for .60 cents each and an item starts at $0.00 and every time you place a bid, it goes up by 1 penny.  If you lose the auction, you lose all of your bids, but you can get them all back if you buy the item at it’s full retail price.

It’s not too complicated.  There are many videos on YouTube, here is a YouTube video for DealDash that you can watch.  I think I might give it a try, wish me luck!

A message from the American Osteopathic Association

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Michaelbeitz for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Are you aware that more than 100 million Americans live in constant chronic pain from sitting in their office desk chair?  70% of them sit in their desk chairs for more than 5 hours per day and 2 in 5 wouldn’t even consider getting out of their chair to talk to a co-worker, they probably chat on the phone or send each other text messages.  That’s how lazy electronics are making us, but I’m sure they would just rather not get up because they are in too much pain, and I can certainly understand that because I am one of them.  I have been diagnosed with Degenerative Disc Disease and I am in constant agony, so much that even prescription strength Ibuprofen won’t help.

The American Osteopathic Association is helping Americans avoid and prevent pain in the workplace by showing some stretch exercises that you can do at your desk chair to help relieve some of the pain.  Take a look.

I did do those exercises and I will start doing those stretches because I am sick of being in pain every minute of every day with no help from medication.  There is something you can do to help your back pain.  Get up and get some exercise.  Go to the office kitchen (if any) and wipe down the counters or make a new pot of coffee.  Sweep and mop the floor, even if it isn’t your job.  Instead of sending your co-worker a text message or calling them, go talk to them in person.  When you are sitting in your desk chair, don’t slouch, sit up straight.  There are lots of things you can do to help your pain, so why not help yourself by being more active?  Visit the American Osteopathic Association for more information.

Shamballa Style

multi-coloured-7-bead-shamballa-style-bracelet

I’m singing a new song today and it’s called Shamballa style.

Shamballa Style isn’t really a song, but more the name of a style of jewelry sold online based in the United Kingdom.  They sell Shamballa Bracelets in many different styles, and they are really cool looking, as you can see from the image above.

They don’t just sell bracelets, they also sell necklaces, earrings, rings and watches for as low as £3.99.  You can even add a gift box for an additional £2.50.  They even send you a free gift pouch with all orders.

They ship using Royal mail to all countries and free delivery if you live in the U.K.

I think this style of jewelry is going to catch on real quick.

New Years Resolutions – MyGofer

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of mygofer.com for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Every year we make a new years resolution to do something that will make our lives better and easier.  Eat healthier, lose weight, exercise, quit smoking, quit drinking or whatever it is that you have issues with.  My personal resolution is to lose weight.  I have tried so many things in the past but it’s very difficult to lose weight when all of the weight loss products are so expensive at the grocery store.

I think that the issue that some people have is time management.  You are stuck at work all day long and when you get off work you are too tired to go shopping.  Wouldn’t it be neat if there were an easier way to get all of your shopping done that doesn’t require a lot of your time that you could be spending at home with your family?

MyGofer is a service from Kmart/Sears that will definitely make your life easier.  You go to their website and browse through the products that they have at your leisure, maybe on your lunch break or during down time, or maybe when the boss isn’t looking.  Don’t worry, I won’t tell.  You can browse the website and add items to your list.  When you are ready to make your purchase, simply buy them and drive to the store and either go to the customer service counter or pull up to the designated curbside pickup location and they will hand you your items in bags right in your window as late as 9pm, even on weekends.  It’s really that easy.  There offer same day grocery delivery or shipping them to your home.

I mentioned earlier that I made a resolution to lose weight, well I can do that with my weight loss coach app on my phone, but what I need are the weight loss foods and fitness equipment.  I actually have a bicycle, but I need to buy some accessories for it.  I was looking through their bike accessories and found quite a few things that I need, like some new tubes, those are expensive, but they are cheaper with MyGofer.  I also need a new pump and a new kickstand and I definitely need new brakes.

They have so many departments for you to browse though, like food and groceries, prescriptions, health and wellness, beauty, baby and nursery, pet foods and other departments like home, bedroom, kitchen, electronics, fitness, office, tools… the list really goes on.  There are simply too many departments to list.  If you need it, chances are they have it, and in most cases cheaper than anywhere else.

I think their website is great, but if you aren’t at your computer and you simply want to browse their products and add things to your list  you could download the app on your phone.  They have one for Android, iPhone and Blackberry.  It is definitely something to look into if you are too busy to go shopping.  I mean, it couldn’t hurt, right?  Check it out!
