When you think of coconut, you probably think about the tropics, but last weekend was the perfect time for using Pure Body Naturals Fractionated Coconut Oil because it was cold.
Saturday was our monthly “Ladies Night In” and with snow still on the ground, it was also a perfect time for each of us to test the Fractionated Coconut Oil. After using a little or a lot depending on the “ash level” on our hands, we all agreed that the Fabricated Coconut Oil was a non-greasy, fragrance free oil that definitely made a difference on our skin.
The Fractionated Coconut Oil can also be used as a massage oil, as a hair and scalp treatment, on your face or body as it does not clog pores or leave a greasy residue. It is colorless, odorless and easily washes out of clothing and sheets. This is a 100% Pure Base and Carrier Oil for Aromatherapy, Essential Oils, Massage Use and Therapeutic Recipes.
So if you are looking for a skin moisturizer that works well in the cold, go online today at Amazon.com and order a bottle of Pure Body Naturals Fractionated Coconut Oil, your hands will thank you – ours did!
New Year ~ New You
Hello friends, how many of you were affected by the first major “snow storm of the season”? I don’t care how many people complained about it turning out to be a dud, I am truly glad that it didn’t turn out to be as bad as predicted.
However, it did get me to think about making another DIY “snow survival kit“ for the car. This year’s kit is going to be stored in a Sacko Insulated Lunch Bag from Amazon.
The Sacko Insulated Lunch Bag with an adjustable shoulder strap is a great size, perfect for soccer moms who carry snacks to the game or for an extra large lunch for the road crew who are out salting the roads in anticipation of the next big snow storm.
It also features an elastic rope on the side to hold beverages, magazines or newspapers and a side handle for an easy grip and go.
The Sacko Insulated Lunch Bag is 12.25″h x 10.25″w x 8.75″d and I have mine filled with non perishables food items as well as bottles of water to keep in the back seat in case of an emergency this winter. It will also make for a great beach tote this summer.
You should order one today from Amazon for a quick ship, that way you’ll have it before the next “major snow storm of the season”. Remember last year’s #PolarVortex hit around this same time in February!!!
Stay safe and warm until the next storm!
Covering Up Against the Cold – #loveseatcover12 #armchaircover12
Hello friends and welcome to winter. In the Northeast it’s time to baton down the hatches and cover up or put away the outdoor furniture. Unfortunately, our garage is filled to the gill with the riding lawn mower, snow blower, cushions, umbrellas and pool supplies so I can’t put any more items inside including our cars!
The deck cushions are all neatly packed and put away, but I have to keep a few pieces of deck furniture out so it’s important to have it covered in order to prevent damage during the winter.
These Astor premium covers from Amazon.com are sized to fit chairs up to 38″x33.5″ and loveseats 58″x32.5″ and as you can see they fit both of mine perfectly. Each has an adjustable elasticized hem and a click buckle strap to keep the wind from blowing them off.
The Astor premium covers are easy to put on and take off, have sturdy, padded handles and comes with a 2 Year Warranty against damage by dry rot, sun exposure, mold or mildew. Your lounge or patio chair will come out from under the cover looking just as good as it did when it went in!
If you are looking for a custom fit outdoor armchair or loveseat cover to protect your deck furniture this winter, check these out and then order them from Amazon.com today.
Happy New Year ~ Happy New You!
If your house is like ours, there is at least one area that is totally dark with no light switch or a lamp, perhaps it’s a hallway or the stairs. We keep the vacuum in a small cubbie in the basement and when the boys were younger they hated going in there to get it because it was too dark.
If we had these Mr. Beams Stick Anywhere Task Lights there would have been no excuse because these high illumination lights really brightens up the area.
Mr. Beams lights are bright, battery operated LEDs that provide safety and security at an affordable price. They can be installed anywhere with heavy duty double sided tape, velcro or two screws (not included). They are also great for kitchen cabinets, inside toy boxes, closets and shelves.
These motion sensors lights have a range of 10-15 ft. and can be set to stay on from 20 to 60 seconds. Mr. Beams Stick Anywhere Task Lights need 4 – AA batteries and only illuminate in the dark so they would be good for a hallway, stairway or as a nightlight in the bathroom. Mr. Beams also has a variety of other energy efficient wireless LED lights which can be ordered today to arrive quickly in time for the holidays.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
