I have partnered with Slim-sation by Multiples for this feature
As a busy Mom taking it all on most of us can honestly say that asking for help is a hard thing. For me its about control and it is faster if I just do it. That’s the mentality I hold for some chores or help with my grocery bags and air flights with bags. Where there are situations I just don’t always accept help that doesn’t mean I never need help. When times get hectic and I fall off the exercise bandwagon I always need help with clothes that will fit right and give me a slim look. Wearing pants like the Slim-sation jeans from Multiples helps my waist appear slim and allows me to actually feel comfortable in my jeans all day long.
Fashion. Figure. Comfort. Those 3 words describe the pants you can choose from that are made with a tummy control panel that slims your waist. I have the Women’s Boyfriend Crop jeans.
I love jeans that have style in the back like on or near the pockets. The front has faux pockets so no bulging and there are actual pockets in the back. Although you pull these jeans on they have a faux zip fly so no one can tell you have a waist slimming band on these jeans.

I have partnered with Lucky Tackle Boxes for this feature
As winter comes to an end, we gladly welcome the spring and summer. I was raised half of my childhood in a fishing town on the Washington puget sound. I have attended several years of the Maritime parade and blessing of the fleets ceremony as our fishing boats head off for the summer Alaska runs. My brother has made many Alaska salmon runs himself on these boats. Whether you live near the coast or by lakes and rivers chances are you know a Fisherman. Lucky Tackle Box has a great gift idea for fishermen of any region.
Every month a box ships full of top fishing lures, tackle and accessories in the themed box of your choice. There are 9 different boxes to choose from
Bass Large Box and XL Boxes
Crappie/Panfish/Trout Large Box
Ice Large Box
Saltwater XL Box
Multi-Species XL Box
Walleye XL Box
Fly Fishing XL Box
Bass Tournament Box
Choose from a 1, 3, 6 or 12 month subscription. Many top brands in the fishing industry launch their newest products in the Lucky Tackle Box mailings and the retail of these always exceeds the cost of the subscription. This is great so your Fisherman can try before they buy which we all know saves money in the end.
I also found coupons and game codes to win more within the box. There was several lures in my Bass Box and I know the value of these are great so it was exciting to see them all in the months mailing. Shipping is free so there are no added costs. Send a LTB subscription today!
This year’s flu season just keeps getting scarier: flu activity surged even higher in late January, with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reporting the aggressive H3N2 influenza virus as widespread throughout the entire continental United States. As of January 27, 2018, the CDC has reported over 50 pediatric flu deaths.
Influenza is a highly contagious viral infection of the respiratory tract (nose, throat, and lungs) that can cause secondary complications and attack other target organs in the body. It typically spreads when an infected person cough or sneezes, spewing the virus up to six feet through the air. You can also catch the flu by touching your eyes, nose or mouth after touching a contaminated surface or object.
So, how do you protect your loved ones? Families Fighting Flu encourages everyone 6 months and older in your home to get an annual flu vaccination. This is especially critical for the very young members of your family and elderly grandparents, who are more vulnerable to influenza. Sadly, senior citizens account for at least 71% of deaths linked to influenza, and at least 54% of hospitalizations for flu complications. Due to their weaker immune systems, people age 65+ are more likely to suffer complications from the flu, which is why it’s critical that people in this age group get the annual flu shot.
Despite your best efforts, if someone in your family brings home this year’s flu bug, put
a game plan in place to protect the rest of your household.
Try to give the sick person(s) their own room. More than one sick person can share the same room if needed.
If you have more than one bathroom, have sick people use one bathroom and well people use the other one.
Give each sick person their own drinking glass, washcloth, and towel.
Stock the sick room with tissues to cover coughs and sneezes, and toss used tissues into a lidded trash can with a plastic, disposable liner. Have the sick person wear a facemask or cover their nose and mouth with a tissue when they leave the sick room or are around others. Finally, have them wash their hands often with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand rub.
Keep everyone out of the sick room except for the caregiver. If that person happens to be you, keep yourself healthy:
Limit the amount of time in the sick room
Avoid being directly face-to-face with the sick person – if a child, put their chin on your shoulder so they can’t cough in your face.
Wash your hands after leaving the sick room
When possible, open a window in the sick room and use a fan to keep fresh air flowing. Clean the sick room daily, including hard surfaces that may harbor the flu virus, like bedside tables, toys, phones and door knobs. Use normal laundry soap on their dirty laundry and tumble dry on the hot setting. Wash your hands immediately after handling any items the sick person has used. You can also wash the sick person’s dishes with ordinary dish liquid or put them into the dishwasher.
Barring any health complications, your flu patient should be able rejoin the rest of the family 24 hours after the fever ends.
