Blog on Hold

So yes I haven't posted in a while but I haven't had much time to post anything new. I'm in the middle of launching my own bow making business and it is more time consuming than I had originally expected. However there is not much time for other activities. When there is I will definitely get this started back up. Thanks for being a loyal reader and hopefully we will be back soon.

Purina Beyond Adventure Dog Food

Our dog Grace is actually pretty special to us. We rescued her after she was abandoned on the highway and her owner refused to come get her. Then came the problem of feeding her. She is a very picky dog and she didn't want to eat anything we gave her. I was afraid it would be too expensive to keep her if she would only eat premium dog foods but then I learned about Purina Beyond Natural dog food.  It is a bit more expensive than processed dog foods but not nearly as expensive as some of the premium brands. I received a free sample of the Purina Beyond Adventure dog food from BzzAgent and slowly started switching her to the new food. At first she acted unsure but after we started feeding her only the new food without the old she loved it. Plus I love that its natural. I've heard so many bad things about corn in dog food but this food has no corn, wheat or soy products. It is also free of poultry byproduct meal. It's very natural with no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. The food we received had tuna as the main protein. I never would have thought of giving a dog tuna but it is such a great source of protein. From the basic ingredients to different proteins this food sounds extra healthy for your pets.

You can choose from Blackhead Eliminating Scrub for oily skin, Balancing Gel Exfoliators for combination skin or Nourishing Cleansing Oil for dry skin. There is a sample for everyone this time. Just go to and get yours today. Your sample should arrive in 6-8 weeks.

Dr. Scholl's Dreamwalk High Heel Insoles

I have to admit I was a bit skeptical about these at first. I love wearing heels out on the town but even a short stroll downtown is painful. My feet are constantly sliding and rubbing my toes raw. I received a free sample of Dr. Scholl's Dreamwalk high heel from BzzAgent and tried them out on date night. First impressions were that it definitely pads your shoes. More cushion means less rubbing. However I'm a bit of a flatfoot and the built in arch was a bit uncomfortable. However after a stroll downtown shopping and then out to dinner they were actually quite comfortable. As far as the arch support goes my feet did eventually adjust and it seemed to make me walk more lightly so it didn't rub so much. I'd give them an 8 out of 10. If the arch support was a bit lower then I'd probably give them a 10. However for what it does do I would definitely suggest you trying them out.

Starbucks Blonde Roast Veranda Blend Coffee

I don't know about everyone else but I really don't like dark coffee. I prefer something light but flavorful. To be honest there isn't a huge selection out there. However now Starbucks has come out with their new blonde roast veranda blend. I received it free sample of this from BzzAgent to try out. After I added a bit of my favorite creamer I am happy to report that I loved! I'd compare it to a nice cup of coffee from a coffee shop. It wasn't too strong but still had that distinct "coffee" flavor. Plus it was very smooth unlike some other brands of coffee. I know I've found a new morning favorite. Why not give it a try too?

4x Fuel Points at Kroger

This post is a bit on the delayed side but here is an awesome deal from Kroger. I am writing this post as a BzzAgent and received coupons as compensation but the opinions are mine.
Now I'm not sure if you are familiar with Kroger's fuel program but here are the basics. When you make a purchase from the Kroger family of stores and scan your plus card you earn 1 fuel point for every $1 you spend. Once you accumulate 100 points in a calendar month then you can redeem them for $0.10 off per gallon of gas up to 35 gallons. Plus if you spend enough you can redeem up to 1000 points, that's $1.00 off per gallon. Now for me this is almost necessary. I have to drive an hour one way to get to work and gas is a major expense. Using my Kroger gas discount helps me have more money to spend on other things. Want more information go to
Now on to the awesome deal. Even though it may still be on the colder side Spring is technically here. And we all know what that means...Spring cleaning. Well to help with the annual cleanup Kroger is offering 4x fuel points when you buy cleaning supplies and other household essentials like paper towels and laundry detergent from March 20 til April 26. That means you'll receive 4 points for every $1 you spend instead of the regular 1 point. I've already gone and picked up a few cleaning essentials myself and did receive 4x my fuel points. Do note that the 4x fuel points will be calculated after any coupons you use. But never the less it is still a great deal. So don't procrastinate and go get those Spring cleaning supplies today.

Tapbooty (#review)

Okay I will admit at first glance this sounds like something very bad. Not so sure Tapbooty was the wisest choice in company name. However as a Smiley360 member I decided to try it out. First I went to the Google play store (also available in Apple iStore) and downloaded the Tapbooty app. The basic idea is that you download and use free apps (there are a few paid as well). Each app you download is worth a certain amount of booty coins. Then you play games to convert booty coins into prize points. The prize points you earn can be redeemed for rewards like Amazon, Target, Walmart, Starbucks, Tango and Facebook gift cards or (my favorite) PayPal cash. Plus you receive your reward immediately. For instance, I've already earned over $3 just for playing games. Also the apps you download you do not have to keep. If you don't like it just uninstall it. I would definitely recommend Tapbooty as a fun easy way to earn a little cash on the side. As an added bonus you get to try some not so well known apps and you might just find one you like. I did :)
Interested in joining up? Just go to and you will receive a bonus of 100 booty coins.
For more information about the Tapbooty mission from Smiley360 go to

Mabel's Labels Chatterbox Update

After waiting a couple of weeks I found out I was not selected to participate in the trial. A bit disheartening but there are thousands of people applying and not everyone can be selected. However if they hadn't offered that chatterbox then I never would have even looked at Mabel's Labels and I was very impressed by the quality. I might just have to buy myself a basic pack for my son when he starts kindergarten this fall.

Mabels Labels Chatterbox

Recently I applied for a Mabel's Labels chatterbox from House Party. I had previously been skeptical and always thought "Who would pay for labels that you could make yourself?" However after seeing the chatterbox available I decided to look at them. Boy was I wrong before. These are amazing little labels. Dishwasher and microwave safe Skinny Minis, washer and dryer safe tag mates and waterproof shoe labels. These things sound indestructible. Anything I could make would pale in comparison. If I get chosen I'll give them a try and come back to let you all know how they work out. Or apply to try them out yourselves at Good luck everyone!
