Let’s get UnGlued

Are your kids addicted to their devices? Communication at an all time low? We don’t have small children living with us, but I can tell you when my nose in stuck in my computer and my sweetheart has his eyes glued to a tv show, there is simply not much communication going on. Time to take charge and reevaluate who rules the roost.

 

 

UnGlue is an App to help parents and children regulate their online time. A tool that can provide the fun time, but also to set limits and encourage your kids to be more aware of where their energies are going.

 

It’s as easy as a download to your smartphone. You, as parent, can set up some guidelines, monitor online activity, even offer rewards of extra time for, say, chores done. They may be lining up to take the garbage out!

 

There are many features to UnGlue that need to be explored. Things like banking time; reports on activity; pausing the internet; tracing and blocking; away from home options; security.

 

UnGlue has offered InezbyDesign readers a free download of the App plus a 10% Discount Code – Inez10Off.  In order for you to make use of this code, you will need to first install the app and look for the “Redeem Coupon” button in the main menu.  Unfortunately, I can’t offer this in Canada, but for all our United States peeps be sure to check it out.

Smooth legs with less time – #IntuitionEffect!

Smooth legs with less time – #IntuitionEffect!

 

This past week we have had two small grand boys visiting.  Two of our little wolves, as we call them.  It has been a fantastic visit and a treat to be able to spend such quality time.  With all the activity, and believe me there was lots of activity, I was lucky to have a few minutes to myself to get ready!  I was so happy to receive my new Schick Intuition razor just in time to get ready for all the fun.  #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback opn the product, which is also an contest entry on 5 Minutes for Mom

 

We have been down to the river to swim. Gone up the lake road to a great beach called Lockhart Beach which is part of the Lockhart Provincial Park; swimming, fishing and throwing rocks.  Checked out Creston’s Rotary Spray Park – a couple of times in the heat wave we are having.  Gone to the toy store; walked to the library; and filled a small pool in the back yard to splash in.  Forgot to mention berry picking at our favourite U-Pick strawberries and saskatoon berries and picking up eggs at a local farm.

Any Day is a Good Day for Fishing

Fruits of Their Labour

Tucked in all the goings about, I was able to try my new Schick Intuition razor.  It was such a pleasure to use.  First, it fit really comfortably in my hand, I did not feel like I was going to drop it.  On the top there is a delicately scented lathering bar built around the razor.  You run it under water to start and then just shave.  It was fast and so smooth you couldn’t really tell there was a razor attached.  I had to feel my legs to see if it was working 😀  I am now ready for any pool side activity!

The Rusty Moose

The other day, Bop and I ran away for the afternoon.  We headed down across the border to Bonners Ferry.  No agenda except fun.

We decided to stop and have lunch at the Rusty Moose.  It is a little cafe in the historic downtown.  By the way there are some pretty sweet little shops down there as well!  Great for a day trip from town.rusty-moose

The Rusty Moose has a regular menu and special of the day; and the desserts, oh my heaven!  We started with coffee, served in red mugs.  I’m pretty sure the red mugs made the coffee taste better. coffee-tastes-better-in-red-cups

I had a BLT with fries and Bop had a steak sandwich with the soup of the day.  So delicious.  I hope you get an opportunity to visit there.  red-inside

Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar #Review & #Giveaway

EVOO and Balsamic Vinegar are my go to choice for salad dressing.  I used to use ranch and loved 3 cheese ranch dressing, however when I went dairy free, or mostly dairy free, I need to try something different.  It was my daughter in law who introduced me to EVOO and balsamic vinegar.  As she is straight from Spain, my son tells me she has olive oil running in her veins.   So started my taste journey.

There's a Party Inside

There’s a Party Inside

Tina Kraft with Mix Party sent me some of the Gourmet Collection, Sundried Tomato Olive Oil and Coconut White Balsamic.  To tell the truth I did not know olive oil and balsamic came in so many flavors.  Be sure to have a look at the whole Gourmet Collection to see what would be your favorite.  I spent some time using these two great items in various tried and true recipes, you can find them under Nana’s Kitchen, Recipes.

The Sundried Tomato Olive Oil was a rich tasting oil, it had a real smoky flavor to it.  My favorite was using it my recipe for Smashed Potatoes.  Equally good with foil package full of potatoes and veggies baked slow on the barbecue, but it was also very tasty on plain garden salad with regular balsamic.Coconut Balsamic Vinegar and Sundried Tomato Infused Olive Oil

The Coconut White Balsamic was fun to work with.  It has a very distinct flavor of coconut with a tangy after taste.  I loved using it in both my Peach Sorbet and in Raspberry Vinegar.  For a real wake up call, take EVOO and Coconut White Balsamic in a small bowl together; dip in chucks of bread for a tasty appetizer.  Have a look at this recipe from Mix Party:  Coconut Grilled Shimp and Pineapple.

Besides the wonderful Gourmet Collection, Mix Party also has a Cocktail and Sparkling Wine Collection.  This is a new kind of direct selling business, Mix Party offers a unique and fresh approach to home parties.  Happy Hour.  A social experience with tasty treats and a wide variety of drinks.  There are beautiful bottles for the Cocktail Collection, you get to choose the one you like.   You can shop for someone special with the gift boxes in any of the collections.  Are you looking for something different?  A consumable and fun business?  Take a closer look at Mix Party and be sure to tell them where you found them.
