Winter is Coming! Be Prepared with BePrepared Emergency Essentials Kits

Weather-based and other natural disasters are increasing in frequency – and severity.  The result is more and more people impacted and even displaced by extreme weather and natural disasters.  Along with 72-hour emergency kits, FEMA recommends that families be prepared with a 2-week supply of food, water and other essentials (https://www.fema.gov/pdf/library/f&web.pdf). 

Every family needs to be prepared for the inevitable unforeseen circumstance, especially when it comes to stocking up on emergency essentials.  Although no one can prevent or avoid unexpected events, everyone should prepare for them. While other emergency food options fall far short of nationally recommended caloric content, Emergency Essentials created its own certification: the Quality Survival Standards™ (QSS™). QSS-certified meals are guaranteed to contain a minimum of 1,800 calories and 40 grams of protein (per person, per day), and often provide far more. That’s why the 2-Week Be Prepared Survival in a Pail kit from Emergency Essentials is the country’s go-to 2-week survival kit. It delivers the basics families need for 14 days, featuring delicious and nutritious chef-crafted meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner with a shelf life for up to 25 years – plus all the required cooking gear to cook the meals…an 80-gallon, heavy duty survival grade water filter for food rehydration and drinking…and life-saving supplies for warmth and weather-protection.  Be Prepared Emergency Essentials has established itself as a national leader in emergency preparedness for good reason.  Families across the country have come to depend on Be Prepared Emergency Essentials and the company’s popular2-Week Survival in a Pail kit for the highest quality, stored-to-last emergency foods – healthy entrees that are easily prepared in only a matter of minutes and packaged in durable containers to withstand a major event.

Catastrophes can strike at any time – and Be Prepared Emergency Essentials is there to meet the critical needs resulting from the unexpected.  For more information on Emergency Essentials visit the https://www.beprepared.com/emergency-essentials-2-week-survival-in-a-pail.

I live in southwestern Pennsylvania where we can experience all 4 seasons in the same week. We can have 92 degrees with 90% humidity in August then -10 with 3 week old ice on the ground in February.

In the winter it can be hard to leave the house because of the cold and ice. Sometimes ice accumulation on the power lines will cause a line snap. Car accidents causing utility poles to go down is another thing that happens. So I ask myself, with a family of 6, what do we do if we have another “snowpocalypse” lose power for days? Cooking would be difficult, heating the house would be hard, leaving the house would be hard.

Each area of the country has their own real disaster threats: floods, hurricanes, tornados, wildfires, etc. How would you prepare in an emergency?

BePrepared Emergency Essentials Kits give you almost everything you need to survive including food kits, cooking utensils, fire starters, water purifier, and more.

We received the 2 week survival in a pail emergency kit. It contains enough food and supplies for 2 weeks. While it does not include water it does include and water filtration system. BePrepared Emergency Essentials does offer kit that contain water as well.

The BePrepared 2 Week Survival in a Pail is an easy grab and go kit for a true emergency situation. It has a variety of dehydrated foods. My son helped me do an unboxing video of the kit so you can see everything included:

How do you think you or someone you know could use this kit? Products from BePrepared.com are great for the survivalist, adventurer, or outdoor enthusiasts.

TrustBrothers CBD Review + FREE Product Offer

This post is not intended to give medical advice. What I have written about is my own personal experience. As with any supplement it’s always a good idea to talk with your doctor if you have concerns.

I’ve written about CBD products a couple times on my blog and social media. I’ve also mentioned in a few posts that I deal with IBS and Ulcerative Colitis. I am on prescription medication for my moderate ulcerative colitis. I also deal with anxiety and depression which tends to be a vicious cycle with the IBS and UC as my anxiety can kick my symptoms up or if I’m having a UC flare up it can kick my anxiety up.

I see my GI doctor regularly. Worried about the side effects and long term effects of some of my medications I started searching for more natural options to supplement my current medications.

In my research, CBD oil kept coming up again and again. There are several research studies and articles about the effect of CBD as an anti-inflammatory. There is also some research out there about a number of other benefits. I’m not a doctor or a pharmacist and I encourage you to do your own research and talk to your doctor before starting any supplement.

With that being said, I turned to CBD supplements when my anxiety meds were starting to make my blood pressure drop and my GI doctor wanted me to go on an even stronger med for my UC. The current medication I’m on for my UC was still allowing me to have periodic flare ups, several a year. I would also have horrible burning pain in my colon and my anxiety was getting difficult to manage at times. Since I’ve started using CBD oil in addition to my UC medication I’ve not had any flare ups. I’ve been using CBD products for a little over a year. I’ve also not had to take the anxiety medication that was causing my blood pressure to drop.

Not all CBD product are created equal though. I’ve tried a few brands. There was one direct sales CBD product that was super expensive and wasn’t worth the bottle in was in. There are also different mg dosages so keep that in mind.

I tried the Hello Happiness CBD Oil 750 mg from Trust Brothers. The oil has absolutely no taste so it’s not unpleasant to put a few drops under the tongue or mix into your drink. One serving size is considered 15 drops and there are about 60 servings in a 30 ml bottle.

I usually take it in the morning before I go to work.

Because of my anxiety I sometimes difficulty sleeping which is why I also requested to try the Trust Brother CBD Sleep Spray. One or two spritzes under the tongue before bed. Again there’s no flavor to it so you don’t have to worry about going to sleep with a bad taste in your mouth. My only complaint with this is that it tells you to spray under the tongue but the type of sprayer on it kind of makes it go everywhere in your mouth.

It typically takes me about 2 hours of laying in bed before I can actually fall asleep. I noticed after only about a half hour or so after the spray that my eye lids became heavy and I was able to fall asleep more easily.

In comparing it to other CBD oil brands I’ve tried this is higher up on the list of quality for me.

ERA Organics Organic Rose Water Review & Giveaway

As part of the beauty category of my holiday guide this year I’m bringing your a beauty product that multitasks.

I use a rose water product already as a toner and even a make up remover depending on what kind of make up I have on. I love the smell of rose water and I love how gentle it is on my skin.

ERA Organics Organic Rose Water is a step above what I normally use. First of all it’s organic. It comes in a convenient spritz bottle making it easy to apply.

ERA Organics products have a 60 day money back guarantee. They’re made in America. They’re also cruelty free, dye free, gluten free, paraben free, perfume free, and no harsh chemicals.

Some uses for rose water:

  • toner
  • setting spray
  • soothing dry skin
  • giving your skin a refreshing feeling especially in hot weather
  • helping to calm irritated skin
  • spritz into dry hair
  • light rose scent
  • I personally use rose water to help remove light make up (doesn’t work as well on water resistant or heavy make up)
  • hair refresher

The ERA Organic Organic Rose Water has an amazing rose scent that lasts long then my typical rose water product. I had never add rose water to my hair but a couple spritzes gave my hair an amazing scent and made me feel refreshed.

This doesn’t really surprise me though. I’ve used a number of other ERA Organics products in the past. They’ve all been high quality and worked well. ERA Organics also offers baby products and men’s products.

I received the above mentioned product sample in order to complete this post. No other compensation has been received. Any opinions expressed are my own.


I Put Glitter on My Tires

When it comes to vehicles, I tend to be a minimalist. I’m not into the bright colors, add-ons, fancy lights, etc. If I were to pay for any vehicles add-ons it might be tinted windows. BUT that’s not to say I don’t like to add little touches to make my vehicle my own.

A while back I saw posts about a temporary spray you could put on your tires to make it glittery. I thought, that could be fun right? Black Magic tire color is the temporary touch I like without the commitment. I had bought some but had been hesitant to use it. Actually when I bought it, it was a pourable that came with a sponge to apply it. I can’t decide if I like it or not. It’s not as glittery as I thought it would be but I’m kinda glad about that because I’m not a super flashy person.

Yea it’s fun but it also gives me the opportunity do a good check of my tires. Proper tire maintenance can add life to your tires. That includes tire rotation. After all, even with glitter on them they won’t look any better if they’re flat.

Sambucol Black Elderberry for a Back to School Immune Boost

I had heard about the benefits that elderberry could offer for the immune system a couple years ago. While on a trip to NC about 2 years ago I came across a little tent at a farmer’s market. They made their own elderberry syrup. The woman who makes and sells it was very enthusiastic and believed in her product. I bought a bottle to try. I ended up seeing first hand how the product helped. The kids were lining up eagerly to get their daily spoonful because they liked the taste so much. Unfortunately they didn’t their bottles to Pennsylvania. I tried to find a suitable alternative but everything fell short until I tried Sambucol Black Elderberry.

Sambucol Black Elderberry comes in a variety of forms too: Pastilles (lozenges), gummies, liquid, and dissolving tabs. They have an amazing taste that my kids look forward to. With the start of the school year, I’ve been making sure everyone gets their daily dose.

Tryazon gave me the opportunity to have a Sambucol Back to School Healthy Party. Of course, I wasn’t going to turn that down! My guests and I got to sample the products, learn about the products, and have a good time with it.

Back to School seems to be the time that our family always gets sick. But not this year. I’ve been fall cleaning and making sure my kids get their daily dose of Sambucol Black Elderberry. Sambucol isn’t just for back to school season though. It’s great for cold and flu season too. I like to take it when I’m feeling a little “bleh” like maybe I could be catching something. Or if we were around someone that was sick.

I handed out a bunch of coupons at my party but I still have a few left. If you’d like to try Sambucol for yourself, just comment below letting me know you’d like one and I’ll happily send out a $2 off coupon for you. They don’t expire until 6/30/2021

Otherwise you can use the store locator to find Sambucol products near you. Or find Sambucol products on Amazon.
