Celebrating and Enjoying My Bar Brat's Instant Wine Aerator #WineAeratorBarBrat

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I haven't had a drink for the past nine months now, and I'm looking forward to having a glass of wine. I just recently had a baby, my daughter was born three weeks ago... the whole reason why I stayed away from booze for so long! I don't drink that often, but I do like the occasional fruity cooler or a glass of wine. I was recently contacted by a company called BarBrat, and was offered to review their Instant Wine Aerator... which to me is a real treat to look forward to. I personally haven't got a chance to physically taste the difference as of yet, however, I have used it to serve wine to my friends and family when they came over to visit my little bundle of joy.

My Skin is Feeling Super Refreshed From [re]fresh Skin Therapy #refreshcanada

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

The last nine months have been a real nightmare when it comes to my skin. With my pregnancy my skin was completely messed up... one day it was dry and flaky, the next it was oily and continuously producing shine, and red patches in certain areas on a daily basis. I gave birth to my daughter a couple weeks ago, and my skin is at the stage where it looks a little confused! It's time for a little TLC at home... that's if my little angel will actually give me time for some.

I recently came across the company Refresh Skin Therapy, and was excited to test out two of their products.

Taking Bids for Outside Residential Projects

The outside of your home plays a significant role in your home's overall appraisal and value. If you allow exterior elements to deteriorate, you stand to lose money on your home's resale value. Rather than jeopardize the appraisal sum of your home, you can identify what projects need to be done to restore your home back to its former appearance. If you are not sure of tasks such as how to build stairs for a deck, you can find out what contractors in your area are suited for this kind of work.

Vetting contractors and taking bids may seem like a complex challenge that will take you hours or days to complete. You may think that you have to call each one or visit them in person to find out how much they are going to charge. However, the Internet makes your contractor search easier by allowing you to get bids on a single website. The information for your local contractors is already input on the website. It is filtered by the details that you put into the online form that starts the vetting process.

My Little Angel is Here!

Where have I been hiding the past week? Well, a little over a week ago I had a follow up appointment with my gyno, and she was concerned since my blood pressure was sky high, and I had itchy hands and feet. So she sent me over to the birthing department in the hospital that she works out of, so I could have some tests done. After being hooked up to monitors for a few hours, they asked me to come back first thing Sunday morning... that's when the Dr was in next, so she could re-evaluate everything.

Went back Sunday morning, was hooked up to multiple machines yet again, and all my stats were still out of wack. Surprise... they decided that I needed to be induced! I was admitted, given my birthing room, and the fun began.

At exactly 3:30am on July 13th, my little angel was born! I was in the hospital for almost a week due to her losing 12% since birth, but once we got the hang of breastfeeding she's up to a good weight... my blood pressure was all crazy, so I'm on a fair amount of meds to help control it. 

Well, time for a quick nap since my angel is finally asleep... Will update you all soon.

Feeling Better With My SantaMedical Non-Contact Thermometer #NoncontactInfraredThermometer!

As of today I'm currently 38 weeks pregnant, and I guess I'm feeling okay compared to how I could be feeling. I have however, felt a little off the last few days, which brought me a trip into the hospital yesterday evening. I had my weekly routine appointment with my gyno for a follow up, and she asked me how I was feeling. I had noticed the last few days that I've been extremely tired... more than usual, and my hands and feet seemed to be itchy as hell in the nighttime. So, that meant many hours of testing and lots of fun at the hospital down the street. I have to go for a follow up on this coming Sunday, which in the end might end up with me being labor induced.

While I was home the last couple days and I was feeling a bit off, I've been monitoring a number of things... my blood pressure, fetal movement with an app on my phone, and double checking my temperature. Thanks to a product that was sent to me from the company SantaMedical, I got to test out their Non-Contact Infrared Thermometer!
