Which shade will you choose?

_________________________________

For me, the shade I chose for my review is very close to my hair color but amped up! Although the color I chose is classified as a cool tone, my skin is actually warm. Part of why I chose this was that the color looks lighter and more vivid then the reddest color in warm category, so, with encouragement from my husband, I chose a color that I think is perfect for me, perhaps could be classified as neutral hair color since I think it would go great with warm skin tones as well as cool (yes the old Color Me Beautiful and PHD in Color has kicked in here). My color shall be: Vesuvius Red – 7NCR (my other choice would be: Genova Red, but on my screen it looks to brown for my taste. lol)

Watch for the review as soon as my hair grows out enough for a new color, so about a month or so. 🙂

So will you join me and find a new color for summer? Let me know!

Petbrosia Review – $10 off savings

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

My Fur Babies and their Petbrosia Review:

Okay so I am a very helpful Mommy to my two fur babies, but I understand their body language, so I am “assisting them” on their Petbrosia Review.

As I am sure you can guess my two little boys were very lucky as they got to try a 10 lb bag of Petbrosia. The company that makes custom made food for your pets, I chose to get the formula custom made for Mr. Peanut.

How do they custom make their formulas?

I am adding the Petbrosia Dog food, the customized dog food to one of my dogs dishes. Save $10 with my code and also posted is a giveaway!They Take into account your dogs breed, age, and weight to create the food for your pet.

Here is a quote from Petbrosia about their ingredients:

Petbrosia uses only the highest quality ingredients, all-natural ingredients, grown and raised by farmers across America. You can be confident when feeding petbrosia that you pet is getting the very best

With all the scares in the news about products coming in from China for our pets, I’ve started checking labels carefully and trying to make sure (on a regular basis) that the dogs food was not made in China and I avoid the brands that have been listed in the past as having problems as they have in the past used ingredients that have killed people’s dogs.

Their products are also:

Made with Real free-run chicken and salmon.

Does not contain: Soy, gluten, corn, wheat or by-product meal (like bone meal)

Contains: Vitamins and supplements including Chondroitin and Glucosamine in every diet (these are the ingredients that you here advertised for humans as they aid in joint health).

I really liked the fact that Petbrosia let me create a pet profile for both of my pets, they even let me upload a picture. 🙂 The above info on your pet helps Petbrosia to find the pets key nutritional needs. Right after I finished both of my dogs profiles, I received a welcome email and then in a very short time (sorry can’t tell you how long, since I accidentally deleted the email, but I have the headers in my search so it was possibly 2 days time) I received the tracking number in a shipment confirmation, the box was sent to me via UPS. It’s always so handy knowing when to expect a shipment to arrive to your home. 🙂

The Delivery was very timely (via UPS) and it was fun to receive a big box of food for my pets as close as my doorstep!

I opened my box and found a lovely foil ziplock package full of Mr. Peanut’s customized food.

Mr Peanut eating petbrosia customized dog food... find my review here & a $10 savingsTiny Dog Eating Petbrosia

My dogs really enjoyed their new food and as instructed, we slowly worked the dogs into their new food… mixing a little of the usual food with the new to let their bodies adjust to the new one. Amazing how many people I’ve talked to didn’t know to do this with their pets, perhaps their pets don’t have sensitive bellies like my long-haired Dachshund “Mr Peanut.” While Mr Peanut was a puppy we switched foods and noticed he was sick for a while, not the case with Petbrosia at all.

One day I forgot to close the zip-lock type bag, (don’t misunderstand me, it’s one of the easiest zip lock bags that I have found in any product) and I found our younger fur baby, “Tiny Dog” begging as he looked up at the Petbrosia as it sat on the chair by the table. I laughed so hard and captured a picture of him doing so! But, of course, that picture ended up as one of the pictures on my computer that were destroyed when I cleaned out a Trojan and a virus that ended up on my computer… darn email sometimes!

Tiny Dog Begging for PetbrosiaI fed this new food to both my dogs, as it wouldn’t hurt Tiny Dog, I was sure and he did fine, this is the reason why, when I had only one 10 lb bag to choose from for one dog I chose the one for the dog that is more mature and was very slightly over weight.
We also received phone calls from Petbrosia they were very nice indeed as they called to check up on us, how the dog was enjoying his food and see if there were any questions etc. Nice to not get any pressure to buy with those phone calls… actually part of the reason we are seriously thinking about getting more in the future! That impresses me, when a company is so confident in their product that they just check up on you and they know that the product and the service just sells itself!

Now one thing the dogs both have perfumed the air with gas, this happened about 2 weeks into their eating the product, and it took about 4 days to subside. *shrug* My guess? Perhaps it was their bodies adjusting to their new food. I have to laugh and tell you about little Tiny Dog, when he releases gas he looks at his rear-end like it’s traitorous. Lol Tiny Dog is so comical at time that he just makes us laugh.

Filling Tiny Dogs bowl petbrosiaWe fed Tiny Dog about ¼ of a cup more a day, Mr. Peanut was on 1 Cup a day, and Mr. Peanut did lose a little weight in a month! Do they make special customized meals for People? Hmmm, nope… too bad, hubby and I could use losing a few pounds. Lol

Anyway, we are highly satisfied with the ease and convenience with Petbrosia’s Product and Service and we will be recommending it to our friends. The dogs seemed to love the food and it may just be the massive amount of weeds growing in the backyard, but the little treasures that I usually pick up from the yard, seems to have diminished… do I really have to spell it out? They seem to be pooping less… that is always the sign of a good highly digestible product when your pets leave less behind for you to clean up after. And isn’t that nice for you too? I would hope you agree! lol

Thank you to Petbrosia for entrusting me with this review, or should I say entrusting my fur babies with this review. Both my dogs give this 2 paws up and send doggie kisses and waggly tails to Petbrosia (their way of saying thank you).

In December I signed up for Julep Maven Membership, I received my first box for free, I just paid for Shipping, which was just under $4.00! I was surprised at how fast I received my box and the full sized products contained in it… plus the surprise addition of a couple of samples to try.  The box contained so much that I was shocked, it must have contained about $60 worth of polishes, skin care and makeup.

One of the full sized products in my first box was called Blank Canvas (Mattifying Face Primer.) To tell you the truth, I worried about a Mattifying product being used on the dry areas of my combination skin. I honestly thought it was a bad choice to send to me, that is until I tried it! I couldn’t believe how my 50 year old skin got smoothed and how great my moisturizing Foundation when on so smoothly and stayed on for once, instead of soaking into my skin or accumulating in the wrinkles! I think that Blank Canvas Primer is a, wonderful product and it’s not just for those with Oily or Normal skin, it works on my combination skin… even my dry skin handles it well too! Nice to try something that I would have never even considered buying before, I love it when there is a pleasant surprise like this was!

The Kajal eye pencil that I received is call Kajal Eye Glider and it is correctly named. This two sided pencil (brown and black) goes on so smoothly it doesn’t pull at the eye. And being that it’s a Kajal it’s perfect for the waterline!

I also received Rock Star Hand Creme, this hand creme applied after washing hands, a bath or shower, really moisturizes and locked in the moisture. I love how it makes my hands look too, it makes those small wrinkles smooth out… I highly recommend applying it, like any  moisturizer to still slightly damp skin so the moisture and plumping from the water is locked in.

So that this post loads quicker, with all the large clickable pictures I have for this review, I have split this post into several pages. To see more CLICK HERE go to the next page. 🙂

Switching to Save with Directv – Save $100

Here is an offer for those Switching to Save with Directv, to save $100 on Directv (AKA: Direct TV) has been extended (this offer is only for new subscribers, as they sign up using account numbers of  us folks who are already subscribers to Directv). This offer has been extended!

Directv picture of the satelite dish

We just noticed, on this months bill, that we have started saving $10 per month for 10 months, as of this month because someone online just switched to Directv with our coupon code (our account number), however it’s is even easier online to switch now using the persons personal link… ours will be included at the end of this post.

Everyone who is with Directv is allowed to have 1o friends saving $10/per month with them (that is up to $100 per month in savings). We have 9 friends remaining at this time that can use our account number (what I call our coupon code)… so we do have one friend who is saving $10 per month for 10 months along with us right now and now they too can start sharing their code for “friends.” 🙂 So the person who signed up using our code or personal link online can now find 10 friends and their savings will grow for 10 months!

This is what my husband says on his blog about the deal:

 “Refer a friend to DTV and get 10 bucks off your bill”. Yup, that easy. If you want to try DTV and want to bag an extra 10 bucks off a month, here’s what you need. My name (Rick Lockwood), this number ( 41137732 ) and the number to call and order, which is 877-731-8456. By signing up as a referral from our account, you save 10 bucks a month… Hey, so do I lol… Lets share the savings!”

To take advantage of this offer, you need to give them the “friends” account number (ours is 41137732 )  or click on their personal link (there will be a link at the end of this post if you need one)  BEFORE you sign up to have your Direct TV Dish installed… this is the only way it works! A neighbor of ours had his installed and waited until then to try and use the code and that does not work. *sigh*

Comcast VS Directv:

The problems we had with Comcast

Before we switch to Directv, we were on Comcast and watched the bill go up and up (what I recall this was monthly). As we noticed that our so called High Definition/digital channels be reduced to only a few suddenly… the reduction of the HighDef on our channels happened several times close together and we finally just “had it” with our lack of good quality signals for our programs.

We started looking into the Comcast HighDef, we called Comcast and asked what was going on with our channels, needless to say we didn’t get an answer we were happy with. The explanation we received was that they were giving a few more channels in slightly better quality and needed to clear room on the signal for the non “highdef” channels that were going to be of better quality for our area then they were. Okay this was not good for us, we love our programs and prefer to get a good signal for the picture quality and sound on our system at home.

We had finally looked up information online and stumbled upon some information that explained the huge difference we saw when we watched a blu-ray & when we watch the  HighDef on Comcast, there was indeed a reason for it… we found out  so called HighDef channels are so heavily compressed that they were not actually coming through in the best quality. The difference between Comcast’s HD and Directv’s HD is that Comcast sends out the signal at 720-HD (DVD quality) and Directv sends it out at 1080-HD (Blu Ray quality). So we found out this is why were were noticing the difference with picture quality and sound with our surround sound system.

Our Decision to Switch to Directv

As a result of our searches online we found out that Directv was the way for us to go as their lineup of channels in the 1080 HD quality is significantly more than on Comcasts heavily compressed 720 HD quality. We also found that there were a lot more channels on Directv, some that I didn’t even know existed.

Things to Do & Consider Before Switching

refer a friend to direct tv and they save $100 with a Bill Credit and $100 of bill credits for your bill too

If you have a family member or friend that has Directv ask them for their account number with Directv so you can save $100 on the switch and they too can save. If you don’t know someone or they are afraid to share their account number, please feel free to use ours ( 41137732 ) for your phone call to Directv 877-731-8456 or very simply CLICK HERE, for you convenience this link includes all the information you need to received the discount and again you will save $10 per month for 10 months and so will we. If you do decide to go with Directv and use our info, feel free to leave me a comment so I can thank you! 🙂

For us, with our HD TV and Surround Sound System, we are very pleased with our Directv as the sound does come in with real surround sound and the picture is blu ray quality!

Disclaimer: The above is our personal experience and thoughts on Comcast vs Directv, I am not affiliated with Directv and I am sharing this 100% on my own without anything (but possibly a savings for my home on Directv) in exchange for this post. And as always this post is my honest opinion of the comparison of the two services.
