Ways to Refresh Your Home for Fall

Fall is coming!  Ya’ll knew that though, right?  As much as I’m still excited about our upcoming late summer vacation I’m also very excited about the fall season. …and the football, the leaves, the sweaters, the cute boots, and the fragrances of fall that come with it.  Oh, and the fall colors and candles too.  And pumpkins!!  Sigh.  There’s so much to love about fall.  This review was made possible by iConnect Influencer Management, Febreze and Swiffer was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.

Now where was I?  Oh yes, fall is coming!  To help you usher in the fall season I’ve rounded up 5 ways you can help refresh your home for fall.

Burlap Pumpkin

1.  Add some pumpkins.  Real pumpkins, painted pumpkins, ceramic pumpkins, or wooden pumpkins.  Any kind of pumpkins can do!

Febreze fall scent

2.  Refresh the scents.  To help get your home ready for fall Febreze has fall scented air refreshers.  Not only can they get rid of yucky smells you don’t want in your home but they can fill your home with dreamy wonderful scents.  Scents have been known to boost your mood and my family loves how their Big Sur woods air refresher smells.

3.  Hang a free fall printable.  The internet has a lot of free printables and I’m sure if you look you’ll find one just perfect for your home.  “Happy Fall, Ya’ll!” is one of my favorite fall slogans. 🙂

Sweater Pillow

4.  Bring out some throws.  I love my chunky orange blanket and white sweater pillow.  They both scream fall and are extra comfy while snuggled on the couch reading a book.
Swiffer Green Box

5. Give your home a good cleaning.  Spring cleaning is the season that gets the most attention but fall cleaning is just as necessary.  Fall allergies are up and at em and staying on top of household dust and pollen will help keep allergy sufferers happy.  Plus, who doesn’t love a clean and nice smelling home?

How to Winterize Your Vehicle

This post is brought to you by Earnhardt Chrysler Jeep Dodge

Winterize a Vehicle

Preparing your vehicle for the cold winter months is essential. You don’t want to risk breaking down in the snow or ice. You also want to make sure your car is safe for winter driving. Read on to find out how you can winterize your vehicle to avoid any problems!

1. Check the battery and cables.

Make sure there is a good connection between all of battery cables. Look for any cracks or breaks in the cables as well. Remove the cap of the refill hole to check the fluid level of your battery. If needed, refill with distilled water.

2. Get the right tires put on your vehicle.

If you live in an area where there is lots of snow, make the switch to stronger tires in the winter. Make sure you change all four. It’s not a good idea to drive with two winter tires and two summer tires. If you live in a very rural area, you may want to look in snow tires with studs so you can make it to work safely every day during the winter.

3. Replace washer fluid and wipers.

Driving in the ice and snow can make it difficult to see where you are going. This is especially true if you get behind a vehicle that is slinging the mushy ice and dirt your way. Replace your wipers so you have fresh, strong ones to take on the winter. Refill the washer fluid basin with an antifreeze solution, to keep your windshield clean at all times.

4. Create an emergency kit.

If your car were to break down in the cold of winter, there are a few things you need to have on hand. Water, non-perishable food, blankets, boots, and a change of clothes are all things you need to include in your winter car kit. Keep these items in your trunk all winter, just in case.

5. Don’t forget the ice scraper!

You don’t want to sit in your cold car for several minutes, waiting on the ice to thaw. Especially when you need to get to work or home! Place an ice scraper in your glove compartment or door pocket, so it’s easy to grab every morning when you need to use it.

6. Switch the oil.

Make sure you get an oil change when it is recommended for your car. In the winter, your vehicle needs thinner oil. So, for example, if you usually use 10W-30 oil in the warmer months, switch to 5W-30 oil during the winter.

Receutics Acne Clearing System Experience

This post was sponsored on behalf of Receutics. All opinions stated are my own.

Receutics

My skin is moody.  Truly.  It’s moodier than I am.  Some days it’s lovely, some days it’s oily, some days dry, and the worst are days when it’s full of breakouts.  It’s awful.  I feel like a 14 year old trying to cover up zits before school in the morning.  Flashbacks flood my mind from days gone by, I can see myself with my Seventeen magazine on the bathroom counter as I’m focused on my reflection while trying the newest remedy to prevent acne.  Oh my, you think that I would have outgrown acne by now.  Sigh.

Lazy Mom

This is a picture of me in my 30s with no makeup on and clearly no shower since I have leftover mascara under my eyes.  What can I say it was a “color my jammie shirt kind of day?”  Sometimes I’ll let my kids color on the back of my pj shirt with washable crayons and it makes for a nice little massage.  When their masterpiece is complete I’ll rotate the shirt around to give them a new canvas…and me a few more minutes of rest.  I know what you’re thinking, yes, I know, I’m a lazy mom sometimes.  I’ll admit it.

Because of the unevenness of my skin and regular breakouts I was open to trying a skin care product line from Rite Aid, Receutics Active Skin Repair.  Their Acne Clearing set comes in three separate steps.

Step 1: The Cleanser

Step 2: Breakout Treatment

Step 3: Clear Tone & Complexion Correction

My skin care

I’ve used this set for 12 weeks now and the results are truly noticeable.  My skin is smoother.  The blackheads on my nose are fewer, the whiteheads on my forehead are almost completely gone.  I still get the occasional zit but much less frequently than before…and my baseline is much better.  Even the “good skin” days that I had before aren’t as good as the bad ones now.  Being a beauty blogger (have you seen my beauty site, EmbracingBeauty.com) I’ve tried a lot, A LOT of skin care products.  Some have been great, many not so great for my skin, but this set is honestly my favorite acne line I’ve tried.  It makes me want to check out their Anti-Aging and Skin Care sets too.

This whole set was only $49.99!  In my opinion, that’s a great value for such an effective product.  For more information visit Receutics.com or swing by your local Rite Aid to try it for yourself.

 

 

Wet Ones Six Flags Giveaway!

I am that mom.  Yes, that one.  I always have wipes with me.  Baby wipes?  Maybe.  Wet Ones Antibacterial Hand Wipes?  Always.  As a parent I want my kid to have fun playing at the playground and with friends but when it’s time to leave they know to grab a Wet One.  Germs don’t stand a chance with me. 🙂  As a part of the Mom It Forward Blogger Network, I am partnering with Wet Ones wipes to get the word out about the Wet Ones Six Flags Kid’s Ticket Offer (which is totally awesome I might add!!).  As a #WetOnesAmbassador I am being compensated by Wet Ones to participate in this campaign.

Wet Ones

I loved going to amusement parks when I was younger and I’m excited about the opportunity to take my kids to Six Flags soon.  We just got our tickets in the mail this week!  Along with my bottle of sunscreen and my tube of Chapstick you can bet I’ll be taking a stash of Wet Ones Antibacterial Hand Wipes.  They’re a great way to wipe off dirt and grime from messy tables but are also great for cleaning hands before eating.  They kill 99.9% of germs.  When you can’t get to a sink with soap, this is the next best thing. …or maybe better since you don’t have to wrangle the dirty door knob on your way out of the bathroom.  (Am I the only one who struggles with this?)  I love that Wet Ones are hypoallergenic so they don’t even irritate my son’s sensitive skin.  They’re great for even the littlest of hands.  They have added aloe and lanolin so they don’t dry out your hands – I love that because I’m also a lotion freak.  I just want constantly clean and moisturized hands, is that too much to ask? 🙂

Wet Ones Singles

Because you have to pack light when you go to an amusement park, I’m planning on taking a big handful of the Wet Ones Singles.  I can store them in jean pockets, back pack pockets, or anywhere because they’re so thin.  I usually opt for the travel packs to keep in the van and a canister to keep in my diaper bag.  The canister also fits in a cup holder.  How do I know that?  Well, I might have two containers of Wet Ones in our van.  We have a lot of cup holders and only 4 people so I might as well put them to good use, right?  No matter what the size, Wet Ones has us covered.  If you’d like to find out more about Wet Ones, visit WetOnes.com and see where they are sold near you.

How to Prepare Your Used Car for Summer Vacation

How to Prepare a Used Car for Vacation

It’s summer time again – the kids are out of school, the weather is nice, and for many families, it’s vacation time! The last thing you want on a family vacation is for the car to break down on you. Used cars are a great way to save money and get more value for your dollar, but since you aren’t the first owner, you’ll want to make sure things are up to your standards before a trip. Here are some important ways to prepare your used car for your family’s summer vacation:

Check the brakes before any long trip. If the brakes are visibly worn and thin, or if they squeal or pulsate when you press the brakes firmly, you probably need to get them replaced. If you are going on a cross country trip, you might want to have your brake lines checked for leaks or worn areas, too. Brakes are probably one of the single most important items on the car – even if the engine goes out, you need the brakes to get yourself stopped safely.

Check your fluids and tires to make sure everything’s full and in good condition. You may get the oil changed regularly, but have you checked the brake fluid and power steering fluid? How about the washer fluid? It’s easy to overlook until you need to wash something off the windshield and no fluid comes out. Make sure the fluids and tires are all filled according to your car’s manual, and you won’t have to worry about them while on vacation!

Inspect for worn belts, hoses, and leaks, especially for long trips. Replace a worn belt now to save money. Not only will you likely pay more for a replacement and labor or tools while out of town, a broken belt can damage other parts in the engine compartment. Check that all hoses are attached firmly and aren’t leaking. If you’re unsure about a potential leak, make note of it so you can monitor fluid levels each time you stop along your route.

Look over the electrical system. Many auto parts retailers will test your battery and alternator for free to make sure it’s not going to quit on you during the trip. Check all of your lights and turn signals. Then check your dash for any of those pesky warning lights that may need attention.

Get the junk out of the trunk. It’s an easy place to clutter, but you won’t want to wade through a winter’s worth of clutter to find what you need on your trip. While cleaning it out, make sure to check your spare tire (your spare may be under the vehicle or attached to the rear). Make sure it’s inflated, and holds air. Check your compartments to make sure you have a safe jack and a lug wrench, and a jack stand is a great idea to add in there.

5 Tips to Make Your Used Car Feel New

This post is in partnership with Dulles Kia.

Tips to Make Your Used Car Feel New

We’ve all heard the saying that a new car loses its value the instant it’s driven off the lot. That’s why you bought your used vehicle – to save money and get more bang for your buck on a reliable car! But we often fall prey to another tempting saying, “new car smell.” Here are five tips for making your used car feel like it’s new again.

1.  Get an inspection. Whether you are able to inspect it yourself, or prefer to take it to the shop for a once over, get your “new to you” car checked out. If there are any fluids leaking, that new car smell will fade when you open the door to the smell of hot burnt oil. New tires will grip the road more comfortably than worn ones, and feel better when turning and stopping. A lot of items are “wear and tear” parts, and can be replaced cheaply and quickly to make things go smoothly. These include the brakes, spark plugs and wires, fluids, and windshield wipers. Don’t forget the rear wiper if your vehicle has one!

2.  Wash the car, including the engine! Don’t just start spraying under the hood at the car wash, though. Disconnect the negative battery cable and cover sensitive components like the alternator and battery. Then use a degreaser mixed with water to cover the engine and scrub lightly with a nylon wire brush. Wash away the grease with the hose or a pitcher of water. A clean engine allows you to detect leaks and problems sooner, lets the engine cool more easily, and prevents the smell of burning fluids.

3.  Use a detailing or upholstery cleaner on the interior of the car. Be sure to test anything you put on fabric in an inconspicuous place first. Then use the cleaner and a nylon brush (many cleaners have a brush built into the cap) to gently clean the seats and floors, even the ceiling if you are feeling ambitious!

4.  Vacuum the interior to get that final clean! Many upholstery cleaners suggest vacuuming after application. I usually vacuum before cleaning to make sure I’m not scrubbing crumbs into the seats, then I vacuum again afterwards to get any dirt I worked out of the seats. Don’t forget those nooks and crannies between seats and doors or the center console!

5.  Add a personal accessory to complete the package. Set your used car apart from the others with an accessory you wish it had. Whether it’s a third party Bluetooth adapter, a phone mount, or even your favorite scent of air freshener, that little touch of you will make the car really yours.

5 Tips for Buying a Used Car

Tips for Buying a Used Car

Every year around this time, people start taking advantage of the nice weather, new inventory, and subsequent sales, and shop for a great price on a used vehicle.  And why not?  Used cars are an amazing deal, and the weather makes for pleasant test drives!  But when you’re searching for a used car, how do you make sure you’re getting a reliable car, instead of a lemon?  Follow these 5 tips for buying a used car to make sure you get the deal without the hassle.

  • –  Check reviews, both online and word of mouth.  Ask your friends and family where they buy their vehicles and how they enjoyed the experience.  Then look online for reviews of the dealerships you are considering buying from.  If reviews are split, you can’t be sure you’ll get a good experience.  If you are able to find someplace consistently well reviewed, or where your friends all had great help and a smooth process, you’re bound to have success as well.  A reputable location won’t lose their good reputation just to make a quick buck off you!
  • –  Too good to be true? Probably.  You’ve heard this one before: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.  If a car is priced significantly lower than others with similar features, age, and mileage, some red flags should be popping up.  Or maybe the car is listed at an average price, but lists “new tires, new radiator, new alternator, new AC, new starter…”  Practically a whole new engine!  Something happened.  Maybe it was an accident, or perhaps it was just someone restoring the car, only to move on to a different project.  Don’t run away from these red flags, but do approach them with caution.  Ask a lot of questions to learn the whole story behind the car.  If you aren’t completely comfortable with the situation, back out and keep looking.
  • –  Test cars out.  If you find a car you like, test another one similar to it.  It could be another used one in the area, or if it’s a recent model year you can test a new model.  This will give you an idea of how the car should drive as you notice little differences between them.  A seller won’t be able to tell you “oh that’s how this model year is… they all idle a little rough,” because you’ve already tested them out yourself.  Then test the car you want in multiple scenarios; drive slowly and test the brakes on an empty street, then through town for stop-and-go traffic, and make sure it doesn’t wobble or have trouble at high speeds by driving on the highway.
  • –  Check it out.  Talk to a trusted mechanic before you start looking at cars and ask if they’ll take a look at some used vehicles for you as you test them out.  When you decide on a car, bring it to the mechanic and have it checked out.  Many will do this for free, and it will give you peace of mind about a vehicle before buying.  Make sure to ask the seller if you can take their vehicle to your mechanic to have it checked out first – it’s their car, after all.  But if they refuse, it’s likely they have something they don’t want you to find.  Keep the list the mechanic gives you, so if you do purchase the car you know exactly what needs done.
  • –  Negotiate.  Most sellers, both dealerships and private, list at a higher price in hopes that you’ll pay it.  They expect some amount of negotiation, and that’s worked into the price.  Don’t be afraid to point out a similar vehicle at a lower price somewhere else, or to mention items your mechanic found as a reason to lower the price.  They have a price in mind that they’ll sell for, and it’s almost always lower than they initially listed.

4 Things to Update When Buying a Used Car

This is a partnered post with Kayser Chrysler Center

Used Car Tips

So you’ve just bought a used vehicle.  You got a good price, saved a ton off the sticker of a ‘new’ car, and got the perfect car that’s ‘new to you’!  But, as much as you might take care of your new vehicle, you don’t know how the previous owner did things.  A report can show whether it’s been in an accident, but not whether the owners kept up with scheduled maintenance or fixed parts on the brink of failure.  Follow these four things to always update when you get a used car to make sure you’re ready to go anywhere, anytime.

  • –  Replace the maintenance items first thing, if they’re looking worn or you can’t tell if they’ve been kept up.  Depending where you buy your used vehicle, you may not know if the brakes have ever been replaced, for example.  Check your car’s manual to see what items should have received maintenance up to the current mileage, then inspect or replace them promptly.  Some of them might surprise you, like lubricating and cleaning the seat belt retractor!  These items are in the manual for a reason, and keeping them up to date will help keep your family safe.
  • –  Check the commonly worn down items to make sure they’ve got some life left in them.  Fluids might need topped off or replaced.  Have the battery and alternator checked, especially before winter!  And make sure your tires are inflated properly and still have enough tread left on them.
  • –  Change any worn belts or hoses to prevent a breakage at the worst moment.  You know, like in the middle of a hot or freezing day, with kids in the car, on your way to work.  Having all your hoses in good condition will help prevent leaks and reduce the amount of upkeep you have to do, too!
  • –  Add in the ‘extra’ items.  These items are ones you typically don’t think of until you don’t have them.  Extra fuses of various sizes can be stored in the glove compartment or special slots near the fuse box.  Maybe you like to keep a tire inflator or jump starter in the car?  And always ensure the spare tire, jack, and lug wrench are present and in good condition.  You won’t enjoy that hot or freezing day on the side of the road taking a tire off, only to discover you have no working spare to put back on!

These are my top four things to update when buying a used car.  Did I leave anything off that you would include?

Laundry Routines to Protect Your Clothes

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/P&G. All opinions are my own.

I love clothes.  More than that, I love kid’s clothes!  I do.  I enjoy pairing together outfits for my son and outfits and matching accessories for my daughter.  It’s right up there on my list of favorite things to do…which seems kind of sad now that I say that out loud. lol  I care about our clothes because I’ve invested time in picking them out and spent money on them.  I want them to last as long as possible.  I want to share a few simply laundry routines that I use to protect my clothes.

Downy

Do you know that a regular washing machine can stretch garments?  It’s true.  The clothes rubbing together in the wash can also make clothes look ragged and worn before their time (especially detailed thread embellishments on little girl’s clothes).  What can we do to help this?  I chose to wash clothes only when they’re dirty.  Maybe I do this partly because I’m lazy but mostly to save on the life of our clothes!  Also, when I wash most clothes, especially my favorites, I’ll turn them inside out to wash.  I try to line dry my clothes whenever possible and if necessary I’ll dry my clothes on the lowest heat setting possible.  Last but not least, I recently learned that Downy Fabric Conditioner helps condition clothes but lubricating each fiber to help protect it from the agitation of the washing machine.  I now use Downy with every wash to help keep my family’s clothes as new-looking as possible!  Plus Downy helps colors stay bright and clothes hold their shape.  Win-win-win!

Downy Fabric Conditioner

We buy a lot of my daughter’s clothes second hand so it’s even more important for us to take care of them to make sure they live the longest life possible.

What are your clothing favorite items that you like to take special care of?  A cashmere sweater?  Your t-shirt from college?  I’d love to know.

6 Energy Cutting Tips for Your Home

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of IGS Energy for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Being eco-friendly is not just about recycling and toting around reusable grocery bags though these are great, easy ways to be more green. Helping the environment can actually help your wallet as well. With these green actions and adjustments around the house, you can effectively lower your electricity and water bills as well as save on other general expenses.

1. Turn off the lights when you leave the room. Electricity bills are typically one of the highest bills a household gets each month. Turning off the lights when you leave the room as well as turning off any appliances and electronics that are not in use are easy ways to help you conserve energy. Electricity generation is also a big source of pollution because many energy companies still rely on burning coal to provide energy for homes and businesses. By actively making sure that you are not wasting any electricity, you will simultaneously cut down on the amount of pollution created as well as cut down on your electricity bill.

2. Make the switch to CFL bulbs. It is true that CFL bulbs, also known as compact fluorescent lamp bulbs, are more expensive than regular incandescent light bulbs. However, when you factor in how much money you save in the long run with CFL bulbs, you will see that these more eco-friendly bulbs actually pay for themselves with the savings you will incur. CFL bulbs typically last up to 15 times longer than a traditional incandescent bulb, and they also have the capability of putting out the same amount of light as a traditional bulb but while using half the energy. In fact, one CFL bulb can save buyers more than $30 in energy costs in its lifetime. If you replace all of the lights in the house with CFL bulbs and make it a habit to turn off the lights when not in use, you could save hundreds of dollars in electricity costs annually.

3.  Only do laundry when there is a full load. You may be tempted to throw your favorite shirt into the wash by itself when you accidentally get some unsightly stains on it, but consider spot-cleaning it and waiting until you are ready to toss an entire load of laundry into the machine before washing it. A washing machine and dryer use up tremendous amounts of energy, so it is more eco-friendly to maximize the use of these machines by only turning them on when there is a full load to wash. When you do fewer loads of laundry, you will cut down on your water and electricity bills as well as your carbon footprint.

4. Make the switch to low-flow and aerating faucets. Just like the CFL bulbs, the initial purchase cost of a low-flow and aerating faucet would be offset by the savings you would incur with use. These faucet heads pump air into the water coming out of the faucet so that you would still experience plenty of water pressure, but with less water usage. When you consider that a single five-minute shower can use up approximately 40 gallons of water, it is easy to see why using less water for day-to-day activities is crucial. By using low-flow and aerating faucets and shower heads, you can help conserve water as well as reduce your water bill.

5. Replace paper napkins with cloth ones and disposable dishes and silverware with reusable ones. It can be tempting to use paper plates and plastic disposable forks and spoons if you hate doing the dishes, but all of that garbage getting tossed out at the end of each meal is bad for the environment. Paper napkins are ill-advised as well for the same reason. When you switch to cloth napkins and reusable dinnerware, you dramatically reduce the amount of garbage you will produce. Though initially purchasing a good dinner set and napkins would be more expensive than purchasing disposable items, you will also never need to buy these items again, unlike the constant need to refill and replace disposable ones. Coupled with fewer washing machine loads and a low-flow faucet, cleaning your reusable items will also still be environmentally friendly. IGS Building 6. Shop around for an independent energy supplier.   What is the difference between a utility and a supplier you may ask?  Well, in areas where this energy choice (sometimes referred to as energy competition) is allowed, the utility is responsible for maintaining and repairing the infrastructure of the poles, pipes, and wires that will still deliver electricity and natural gas to consumers.  While a supplier, on the other hand, is a company that sells the energy that the utility delivers. Suppliers compete in an open marketplace by offering a variety of services and incentives, and consumers chose those that most appeal to them and best meet their energy needs. Suppliers have more options to purchase the energy more efficiently and cost-effectively.  (Go here to learn more about energy choice and deregulation)

To put it in a different way, imagine you are going to buy the latest Smartphone from Apple.com or Target.com and the U.S. Postal Service delivers it to your home, in a deregulated market, you can choose an independent supplier (like IGS Energy) to purchase your electricity and natural gas on the open market, deliver it to your utility, and your utility delivers it to your home (or business).

You may also choose to remain with the utility whose rate often fluctuates with market conditions – meaning their rates are variable and move up and down at various times of the year. The benefit of an independent supplier like IGS Energy is that you can lock in rates at today’s low rates for the longer team and have the peace of mind that if rates jump around, yours remains steady. Suppliers are also able to offer other options such as longer-term fixed rates, flat bills, or green energy products.  IGS works with your local utility as part of the utility’s customer choice program – they aren’t in direct competition. IGS Energy Salesman Serving over 1,000,000 customers, IGS Energy is one of the largest independent suppliers of natural gas and electricity in the country.  Not only that but they also offer a wide range of home protection products to help customers protect their budgets against costly repairs of the utility lines that keep their home running smoothly, that most people don’t know are their own responsibility.  It’s not too late to make a change, you can check your options here: natural gas and electric supply products.IGS Energy IGS Energy is also actively involved in their community.  Across all of their offices throughout six states, 630 IGS employees gave back to their communities, and company-wide they provided more than 3,000 combined hours of volunteer service. Over 45 organizations were supported during the All-Employee Day of Service including Goodwill, Habitat for Humanity, community food pantries, and animal shelters.  Check out more of ISG Energy community involvement here: IGS Companies community support.
