With a family of 5 where 3 of us wear glasses, having a site that has a wide array of styles as well as an easy way to order glasses on-line makes life easier. GlassesShop.com makes ordering glasses on-line easy. The frames come in all the styles, shapes and colors you can think of. They have glasses for kids, women and men as well as a great selection of sunglasses.

I received a pair of glasses for review. My last pair was fine but I found that I needed a bigger lens to cover my range of vision especially for when I was driving at night. The glasses are larger than what I usually where and have made a big difference at night. I have to say thanks for making my drives much safer.

GlassesShop.com is offering our readers 20% off on a new pair of glasses. Just use the code ElizabethX20 at checkout!

Thanks for the pair of glasses GlassesShop.com. No other remuneration was received. All opinions are ours.

We are a family of five. When it comes to snacking, we are more like a family of fifty-five. With three growing boys in the house, we can never seem to have enough of one thing or at least something that makes them all happy. And yes, I am including Paul in the category of growing boy since he still eats like he is in puberty. When G.H. Cretors Popped Corn offered to send us some samples to try, the answer was easy: Yes!

 A Review Of Popped Corn

G.H. Cretors Popped Corn is all natural with yummy flavors like Cheddar Cheese, Caramel and Chicago (which mixes Cheddar and Caramel). The popped corn is fresh and not soggy tasting like other popped corn mixes. The flavors are amazing. The cheddar cheese will swear you off all other fakey cheese powder snacks because it tastes like real cheddar. The caramel is so good there was nearly a riot when we found that one of the sample bags was temporarily misplaced (actually it had been hidden by Paul). Our favorite had to be the Chicago mix because the combination of the savory cheese and decadently coated caramel popped corn was great.

The lists of ingredients are clearly labeled and there is nothing in these snacks that is hard to pronounce. They are gluten free, no GMOs and Kosher. It is a yummy snack made with real food that I do not mind my kids eating.

Go to their site right now for a Halloween discount! Also follow them on Facebook.

We were provided a sample of the product. We received no remuneration for this feature/review. All opinions are ours.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Cottonelle.

I know that I have a personal cleanliness routine that most would think borders on being compulsive and a tad obsessive. I don’t have many ‘have tos’ in my repertoire but being clean is definitely one of them. I like being able to ‘guarantee freshness’. What does that mean? I am not washing my hands to the point where Lady MacBeth would be ‘woah, Lee’. I just like being ready for anything like an impromptu gynecologist visit. Get it?

Cottonelle asked me to try out their new care routine which included their toilet paper and new wipes because my cleanliness is legendary. As a Mom, I always keep wipes on me for any yucky emergency that my kids can create but I have not used wipes in the bathroom because it was my understanding that they were not plumbing friendly. However, Cottonelle Flushable Cleansing Cloths were designed to work with Cottonelle Toilet Paper to get you clean and not mess up your plumbing. This tells me that I am not the only person who wishes to guarantee freshness.

I also have to mention that the Cottonelle Flushable Cleansing Cloths come in a lovely dispenser that actually looks nice in the bathroom. The kid’s wipies always came in bulky boxes that made it hard to pull one out and were not exactly packaged for display. These new cleansing cloths come out easily and, also unlike the wipes, do not feel shockingly cold or wet. After you use them, you don’t feel like you need to air dry. You just feel clean.

I know, you are feeling a little weirded out by this conversation but don’t be. Everybody goes to the bathroom. Everybody has bodily function. There is no reason we should not be discussing this in an open forum. Cottonelle wants to have this conversation. They have partnered with Cherry Healey to talk about wiping. Cottonelle’s Care Routine is being discussed right now on their Facebook page. That’s right! People like you and me are discussing their bathroom routines and incorporating the Cottonelle Flushable Cleansing Cloths in their cool, easy to use dispenser on Facebook! Nothing leaves you feeling cleaner and fresher than the Cottonelle Care Routine. Visit the Cottonelle Facebook page and let’s talk about your bum.

Cottonelle wants to get you talking about your bum and on a better way to clean “down there” by using the Cottonelle Clean Routine. By combining the use of Cottonelle Toilet Paper and Cottonelle Flushable Cleansing Cloths, the Cottonelle Clean Routine is a revolutionary way to keep your bum cleaner.

We found something new for CoupleDumb’s Favorite Things!

We have been married for a long time. One of our secrets is that our relationship is our priority. We do little things to remind each other that we are important. A text message. A Facebook update. An inside joke. A reminder of a memory that we created long ago.

twyxt 300x294 Twyxt To Communicate With Your Loved One

This is why we love this new app from Twyxt available in iTunes and Android. It is a social media platform just for the two of you. The app was designed for a couple to keep in touch on a very personal, private platform. It has a ton of features that help not only to stay intimate but share the important things of life.

Messaging- There messaging was especially designed for a couple. Their smiley faces go beyond a kiss and include sharing your moods from happy to horny.

Calendar- The calendar is more than sharing soccer games. It also helps you save special memories and becomes a couple journal.

Lists- If you are like us, you are run by your to do list. The list feature allows you to share your list with your partner and it stays updated on both sides.

Photos- Share photos with your partner that are meant only for the two of you and create memories that you will be able to share for a long time.

Soon they will be coming out with a virtual shoebox for couples to keep their e-keepsakes from great text messages to pictures.

The best part of this app is that it is secure. All text and photos are encrypted so that you are only sharing with your partner. And, if your phone gets misplaced or stolen, they are well protected.

Twyxt.us is free to download on iTunes and Android. Make your smartphone also smart about love, go download Twyxt right now.

We would like to thank Bianca Loew for her great idea and speaking with us about it.  We were not compensated in any way for this feature. All opinions are ours.
