Puritan’s Pride Holiday Survival Kit

Puritan’s Pride provided This Lady Blogs with a sample Holiday Kit for review purposes.

School is back in session and before you know it Thanksgiving and Christmas will be here!  If you’re like me, you rush around all year long, no matter what the season is. 😉  Puritan’s Pride has the solution for those busy and hectic days – the Holiday Survival Kit.

My husband (DH) and I have enjoyed this survival kit from Puritan’s Pride immensely.  It includes a variety of vitamins and herbs that have helped us tremendously.

I take B-12 100 mcg at lunch each day.  That is the time I usually need a pick me up, you know, when the caffeine rush wears off?  It is time-released and keeps me going through out the long day into the early evening.

At dinner, I take Valerian Root to calm my mind and body.  I’m one of those people that keep going even in my sleep!  Valerian Root helps me to relax and leave the day where it belongs – in the day!

My DH takes Melatonin with St. John’s Wort to help him drift off to sleep. He was having difficulty falling asleep and Melatonin seems to be working well for him.  These are our personal experiences with these products. *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

Enjoy a cup of Cozy Chamomile Tea after a long day at work, lunch with the BFF, or after a hectic shopping trip! You deserve it.  This tea will complement those fall Pumpkin Cake recipes nicely too. 🙂

Last but not least, Lavender 100% Pure Essential Oil has many uses.  Use as aroma therapy or in this recipe for an uplifting and stimulating warm bath.  

Now you can see the benefits of this amazing Holiday Survival Kit – a must have – all year long! 😉

Be the Queen of Everything with Flirty Aprons!

Flirty Aprons sent a sample of KayDee Queen of Everything to This Lady Blogs for review purposes.  

Flirty Aprons

Do you still wipe your wet hands on your jeans or skirt?  Do you dry them with your shirt?  Do you think of aprons as something your grandma used to wear?  I bet you’ll be surprised at what Flirty Aprons has to offer! These aren’t grandma’s aprons… not that there was anything wrong with grandma’s aprons. 😉  Love you, Grandma!

At Flirty Aprons, you will find modernly sophisticated aprons that will turn the eye of anyone who sees you wearing them.  My daughter immediately said, “I want one!”  Then, followed by, “You know, you’re NOT the queen of everything.” 🙂 Gee thanks, dear!  Luckily these are available for little girls too. My husband was even impressed with how cute my KayDee Queen of Everything Flirty Apron is.

Sometimes we ladies feel blah with our normal routines of cooking, cleaning, and laundry.  Make time in the kitchen memorable and enjoyable with Flirty Aprons.  Besides keeping your clothes clean and having a place to wipe your hands, you will look like the queen of everything!

There are over 50 fashionable styles to choose from.  All orders ship in one business day and there is a 30-day money back guarantee. These make great gifts for any occasion, especially for the lady who has everything.  Give the “Queen of Everything” a new flirty apron!

The aprons measure 21″ in width and 27″ in length.  The waist ties are designed to fit any body type and can be tied in the front or in back.
