Ideal Balance cat food

Tesla loves food.  Dry food, not so much.  Wet food, well, that's a different story.  She'll devour anything that's delicious and juicy.

Thanks to Crowdtap, I was able to feed my hungry cat some Ideal Balance by Hill's cat food.  Tesla's Ideal Balance package came with some wet food, treats and a laser pointer to keep her busy and fit.   I gave her a little bit of this mixed with her regular food for a smooth transition. Usually, when I give her the food I usually feed her, she ignores and eats when she's hungry for real.  As soon as I put out the plate of dry food with Ideal Balance she ran to the bowl, smelled it and looked at me all confused and happy at the same time and started eating it right away.  Exciting!  The best thing about Hill's Ideal Balance cat food is the fact that it doesn't have any grain and it's made right here at home in the USA! It contains the perfect amount of nutrients which aids with weight loss and helps maintain the weight.   She especially liked the wet food and eat it in two minutes.  She enjoyed the treat as well, but her favorite was the wet food! She's happy and fully and I have a piece of mind that she is eating something that's good for her!

Playtex Sport Fresh Balance

Playtex Sport Fresh Balance!

What it is:

Thanks to Influenster I was able to try this regular absorbency plastic tampons.  It has a light scent, 360 degree protection and odor shield.

My thoughts:

This is my first time trying a Playtex product, and I have to say I like it.  It's perfect for every day things that involve more active or heavy duty activities.   The light scent is fresh and pleasant, without being overwhelming.  A pantyliner is still necessary for back up.  The applicator comes in a cute pink plastic tube with a rounded tip for easy application.  It is individually wrapped for easy transport inside a purse, so it's very discreet.  It's comfortable and it feel like you're not wearing anything.  I'll definitely use again!

Spring Fling VoxBox!

Thanks to Influenster, I was able to receive the Spring FlingVoxBox!  Here is what's inside and what I like so far about each product inside:

1.  Card that explains what's inside the box.
2.  Playtex Sport Tampons - they're perfect for working out or running around, or just being active with odor protection, keeping fresh all day long.
3.  Nivea Firming lotion - for firmer, toner skin. Deliciously fresh, non oily, and perfect for everyday wear. I love the travel size they sent me, which I carry inside my purse all the time. 
4.  Rimmel Scandeyes Mascara - tons of volume AND length, in a very, very black color. No clumps or anything like that, but this is pretty average for a mascara.  Great for the price of $6.

5.  Kiss Everlasting French Manicure -  the perfect long lasting French manicure, without all the hassle.
6.   Softlips Cube in Pomegranate Blueberry - 5 different benefits, including SPF15. Delicious minty-berry flavor.  Leaves lips hydrated and this is my favorite product in the box
7.  An extra.  Peach pie air freshener from the Labor Day movie -  Looks like pie and smells like Peach pie!!! So Yummy! I haven't seen the movie yet, but if the movies is as good as this smells, then it's probably pretty darn good (plus, it has Josh Brolin and Kate Winslet, two favorites of mine).

Litter Genie!

Litter Genie is a life saver, recently, the city where I live banned plastic bags,  That's what I used to use to dispose of the litter box for my cat Tesla.  Thanks to Crowdtap,  I was able to receive one Litter Genie to try. Here are my thoughts:

As I said before, the city where I live banned plastic bags, and that's what I used to use to dispose of the littler.  On top of that, I live in a tiny apartment and really sometimes the smell is not the best in the house, because of the litter box.  I was almost running out of plastic bags when I was picked to sample Litter Genie.  Yay!  Litter Genie is an innovative litter disposal system, which helps with litter odors.   I have to say that it works! Not only does it eliminate my need of plastic bags, but it helps control the odors.  Litter Genie uses its own plastic film, which is refillable.  It keeps little for up to 14 days.  After which you use the built in cutter provided to cut the film, and get rid of the litter, pull some more film out of the refill, tie a knot, and voila! Little Genie also comes with its on litter pail, which goes conveniently on the side of the device.  
Also, the white design makes it easy for customization, so if you want to put stickers or write on it, you can!  I chose to write my cat's name on the front top part in purple Sharpie.

In conclusion, littler genie is great for those households with one or more than one cat, it takes minimal space, and for me, it works great because my apartment is so small.  It does a wonderful job keeping the odors under control (yay! no more daily trips to the shared trash can),  so I will keep on using it for sure.

Visit Santa Fe, Visit The Original Trading Post

Where to go when you visit Santa Fe, New Mexico?

The Original Trading Post is one of my favorite places in the world.

The only reason why: because it's an awesome store!

It is located in Santa Fe, New Mexico and according to their Facebook page it is the oldest trading post in the United States.  The building has been around since the 1600's.  Therefore it is the oldest trading post.  Older than the Independence. Older than the Constitution.  Older than old.

The building looks like a normal, simple building from the outside.  I love how it surprises me every time I go there. This store is HUGE. It is wonderfully big, full of stuff you won't find anywhere, both high end and affordable.
It specializes in Native American jewelry and pottery.  But it has so much more.  It has amazing clothing from American designers such as Patricia Wolf from Texas, to renowned designers such as Simon Chang from Canada.  I love their clothing, which has every size from S all the way to 2XL depending on the item.  It also has the most extensive and varied skirt collection I have ever seen in my life.

Sometimes, there is a ghost tour guide that takes people in and talks about the spirits that reside in the old wells of the trading post.  I don't know how much of it is true, but listening to the guide is pretty entertaining and fascinating.  

Besides the awesome stuff that's in the store, and the beautiful displays that they show inside, I think my favorite part is the staff.  The give you a customized experience that you won't find in any other store, where the guest is the number one priority.   It is a fun store, full of fun stuff and fun people.
