Smart Shield- Serious Sun Protection

This summer meant a lot of outdoor time and fun, we always make sure to use some for of sun protection. What people sometimes forget is as we send our children back to school the sun is still very much a threat. Recently my family received the chance to review a product called Smart Shield. Smart Shield is a Continuous spray sunscreen that you can wear all day every day. It is oil free so it won't stain your clothing or clog your pores. It is made to help let your skin breath, which helps you stay cooler, since it is quickly absorbed into your skin. The product is hypoallergenic, PABA free and DEET free for safe family protection.

We have used nearly the entire bottle now and it is still spraying very well. I love that it doesn't spit little blobs all over that I have to wipe with my hands. You have probably noticed by now if you read the blog regularly that my middle son never seems to have a shirt on.lol I couldn't tell you why but he jsut doesn't like them, and when we are out in the backyard nothing changes, he is actually less likely to wear a shirt. So of course here I am spraying him. I have noticed it does leave a slight film on his skin, but it doesn't seem to be oily when he sweats. We have yet to encounter a sun burn while using this product even with 4-6 hours in between uses. With summer far from being over here is West Texas I will be picking up another bottle this week.
To try this product for yourself you can check out their site and find a retailer near you HERE. Or you can simply order from their site :) make sure to check out all the great news and stay up to date with them on Facebook and Twitter.

#Cozycatfurniture Growing up Kitty with Ginger

  It has been so many years since we have had a kitten around the house I think I had forgotten just how active and amazing they are! I am sure many of you have seen me talk about Ginger our baby. She is FeLV positive, and just days short of her 7 month birthday. We also have 2 other boys with are getting up there in age. Thomas has always been a scratcher and I admit I had never thought about getting a kitty tree before this. Earlier in the month a great opportunity to review the Kitty Condo Tree from   Cozy Cat Furniture came about I thought oh great Ginger will have a place to nap, play, learn, and most importantly SCRATCH!      It Arrived in a box which I have to admit scared me a bit at first, it was much small then I thought.....was the tree smaller....was this one of those "some adult assembly required" items? Luckily it was easy to put together and came out so much sturdier then I had expected.  Even before we could give the word go Ginger was eager to play a

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need: 2 Cups of Sugar 2 Cups of Water 1 Package Sugar Free Jello A candy Thermometer Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
