You might have heard about how alkalizing your body could be beneficial to your health. Maybe you’ve even read a bit about how to alkalize your body.  Depending on what you read and where you read it there’s suggestion about diet changes, several different herbs or supplements, or you can make it easy on yourself and try Multiforce.

Multiforce from SANP International LLC is an alkalizing multi-mineral dietary supplement powder. Simply choose your flavor: Lemon, Mango, or unflavored, mix a teaspoon into a glass of water at night, then drink. Boom done!

Different systems of your body function better when it’s at a perfect ph: acid/alkaline level. Different systems of your body might prefer a more acidic or a more alkaline environment. If you’re too acidic you might experience things like:

  • heartburn
  • feeling like you have no energy
  • headaches
  • skin break outs
  • weak immune system
  • kidney stones

and more.  This can be cause by a diet containing too much sugar or processed foods, high stress levels, smoking or drinking alcohol, and more.

I personally wanted to try Multiforce because I have a few chronic health issues. Also, as I get older, I’ve been getting more heartburn, especially at night.  My diet is not always what it should be either.  I rotated through the three Multiforce flavors making sure to drink it every night before bed for about 2 weeks.

All three of the flavors tasted good.  I’m not usually a big mango fan but if I’m to be honest this one tasted great. It had a more natural mango flavor.  It didn’t have that odd after taste like some mango flavored products do.  I also liked the unflavored since I enjoy my water anyway.

Within in the 2 week time frame of using Multiforce every night I only had one instance of mild heartburn. For me I normally have moderate heartburn 2-3 times a week.  I also felt a lot less bloated. I actually had someone comment to me that I looked like I lost weight in my stomach. That made me feel good.  All this time I thought I had a gut seems I was just always bloated. Of course, I have ulcerative colitis so that does happen.

You can find Multiforce at Multiforcehealth.com or on Amazon.  Coupon code is for Multiforcehealth.com only.

They also have free samples of Multiforce available.  Just pay shipping!

Lovebug Probiotics Probiotics for Your Needs

I received the below mentioned products at no cost in order to complete an honest review. Any opinions expressed are my own.  

I’ve wrote about it on my blog before.  I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and IBS a few years ago.  So of course I start reading about what I can do to improve my situation.  As I’m reading I find that there’s a lot more to gut health than just bathroom issues. The gut has links to things like depression, energy levels, and more.  While I know I can’t cure my ulcerative colitis there’s things I can do to try and stay healthier and reduce my flair ups. Things like trying to eat well, exercising, and taking probiotics.

I’ve tried a lot of different probiotics.  I generally would go with the cheaper ones until I started reading more about it. As I read about it I find that the number of live cultures it contains matters.  Also the types of live cultures.  Some have only 1 strain of beneficial live bacteria. Lovebug Probiotics patented Bio-tract delivery technology helps more of that beneficial live cultures make it to the gut.   60% of Lovebug probiotics live cultures make it past the stomach acid barrier where only 4% in standard capsules do.

Lovebug Probiotics doesn’t just offer one type of probiotic either. They have a variety of probiotics to meet your needs and the needs of your family. There is one specifically formulated for boosting the immune system, one for women, one for helping with your weight-loss efforts, choices for children, and more.  Each product is developed by expert scientists, doctors, and medical experts choosing the most beneficial cultures for each product.

I’ve been trying to work out at least 3 days a week for an hour. Both for overall health and for weight loss.  I’ve been taking the Lovebug Probiotics “Here’s the Skinny” for about 2 weeks now.  I was feeling better overall.  I decided to step on the scale today and saw I lost 2 lbs.  It was actually surprising to me because even though I’d been working out regularly my diet hasn’t been on par.  I definitely notice a difference with the bloating digestive discomfort I normally have with my chronic issues.

Lovebug Probiotics is a women owned company.  Their products are Non-GMO, gluten free, yeast free, lactose free, sugar free, preservative free, no artificial colors or flavors, packaged with organic cotton in beautiful glass bottles.

With school starting here soon the “Colds Suck” formula will definitely come in handy.

How to Make a Lighted Container Fairy Garden

This post is sponsored by Dollar Tree. Any opinions expressed are my own. This post also contains affiliate links and I will be compensated for purchases through these links. Thank you!

I’ve always wanted to make a fairy garden. I’ve searched online and looked at all the super cute fairy garden supplies. Much of it is so expensive for how tiny it is.  I was so excited to see Dollar Tree had fairy garden supplies. It was a game changer for us because it meant that starting a fairy garden was going to be easy and affordable. Since it’s still pretty cold here in Pennsylvania we decided to do a container fairy garden.

You can find bulk fairy garden supplies on DollarTree.com. Everything you need to make a whimsical fairy garden with little houses, fairies, decorative rocks, and so much more.  What’s fun about fairy gardens is there’s no one way to make them. You can make it completely your own.  It’s a fun project to do with kids.  Here I show you how to make a lighted container fairy garden with materials from DollarTree.com

MATERIALS:

  1. Container of your choice medium flower pots or short squat vases work well
  2. Fairy garden buildings and/or fairies
  3. Soil
  4. River pebbles, accent gems, aquarium rocks in neutral colors
  5. Floral moss and floral grass
  6. real or artificial flowers
  7. real or artificial succulent plants

Optional items:

  1. Fairy lights
  2. glitter

I was able to get all the supplies I needed from DollarTree.com or my local Dollar Tree store.

First fill your container with soil. I was able to find soil at my local Dollar Tree store. Two bags were plenty to fill up my medium size flower pot I chose.  You can do these as small or large as you like.

Next, decide how you want to arrange your fairy garden. You can set your fairy building, fairies, and flowers around before you start adding texture and planting things into the soil.  You can plant real plants or you can use artificial plants for a year round fairy garden.  Since it’s pretty cold here in PA yet, we opted for artificial plants.

We started by putting our fairy building we got from DollarTree.com on first then building and decorating around it.  We decided to plant the artificial succulents into the soil so they weren’t bigger than the buildings. If you’re using real plants you’ll do the same, of course. We already had an idea of what we wanted to do. We added river pebbles to add texture. We used blue accent gems that we bought on DollarTree.com to make a little pond in our container fairy garden. Floral moss added some sense of whimsy while artificial flowers gave our garden more depth.

We had bought some cute battery powered dragonfly lights at our local Dollar Tree that we wanted to add to our container fairy garden. They only had a few lights on them and were light weight so they worked well with our container garden. We sort of weaved them through the artificial flowers we placed in the pot.

We had so much fun with this project. It’s a fun family project. Would also be a fun playdate or party project. You can buy bulk fairy garden supplies at DollarTree.com

You can really add your own touches by adding more or less scenery items. A  pinch of glitter, real flowers, or other decorations.

This Is How We Do Football Game Parties Frugal Style

My family is a big football family.  So the “Big Game” is a a big event in our family. Every year we have a Big Game party no matter what teams are playing. So the Patriots vs Falcon game was no different.  Each year our parties consist of family, significant others, and a few friends.  No less than about 18 and have been upwards of 25 people.  This year, if my count was right, we had 22 people at our house for the Big Game.  So how do we throw big game parties that makes them ask “Can we have it at your house again this year?” and not break that bank doing it?  I’m  here to share some tips.

Facebook Events

LOVE using Facebook events pages to invite people, keep people up to date, and keep track of info.  No having to buy paper invites for an informal party. Facebook sends them event reminders when the event gets closer and people are more apt to RSVP I’ve found.  AND…it’s free

Cover Dish

Don’t spend loads of money and stress out for two days over a big party.  Tell everyone it’s cover dish and ask them what they’d like to bring.  If people aren’t sure what to bring you can either appoint them items or give them a choice of a couple things to bring.  I know my dad doesn’t cook much but usually has a steady supply of drink boxes and soda on hand so I usually appoint him that.  Some have signature dishes like my cousin’s vegetable pizza or my aunt’s cheeseball.  You can even tell people to bring chips and pretzels if you know they’re probably too busy to make anything or don’t want to put a more expensive item on their plate.  If you take the Facebook Events tip and use it, you can create a “cover dish” thread so people can see what others are bringing and have an idea of what’s needed instead of getting phone calls asking what they should bring or ending up with 3 people bringing buffalo chicken dip.

We chose to supply the beer, buffalo chicken dip, and cupcakes.

Party Supplies and decorations

Sure you don’t have to have decorations but things like plates, napkins, utensils, and cups might be a necessity. I’m a couponer so coupon for some stuff. BUT I like to give those little extra touches that make the day seem a little more special.  You can see in the picture in the cover dish section. I found super cute football plates, napkins, and cups at Oriental Trading.

I also got some paper football straws at Oriental Trading. The kids loved them.  I think all the kids had them in their drinks.

The thing that got the most comments was the super cute football stadium cupcake stand I got from Oriental Trading. It was only $9.49, sturdy enough to hold 2 dozen cupcakes, and I’ll be able to use it again.  I’ve made cupcakes for events before but they never went as fast at these did. I really think it had something to do with the presentation!

I also got the matching football cupcake wrappers and chocolate footballs from Oriental Trading!  I got a big roll of disposable table cloth that looked like a football field too. It covered 2 – 6 ft tables plus the little 3 x 3 table we had and I still have plenty left for another football themed party or too. It made clean up so much easier too!

So to recap, I got: football field table cloth roll, football field cupcake stand, a big bag of chocolate footballs, football cupcake wrappers, 2 packs of football straws, a pack of 24 football cups, 2 packs of football napkins and 3 packs of football plates for $60!  They have team specific supplies as well if your having a party when your favorite team is playing.

With the cost of the food/drinks we supplied and the party supplies from Oriental Trading we were able to host a great Super Bowl party for 22 people for about $125.  That breaks down to only about $5.69 per person for what came out of our pockets!
