Rejuvenate Your Skin with Tangerine Lilly Vitamin C Serum Giveaway #tangerinelilly

There are lots of skin care products I tried recently. Living in Canada and spending much time outside for various reasons require extra care, especially when it comes to face and hands. Winter weather conditions make skin dry that you need to apply your moisturizer over and over again. Loss of moisture results in wrinkles, patches and other aging companions we are so eager to get rid of. Fix all these problems at once can facial serums and new one I was excited to try and write about  is Tangerine Lilly Naturals Vitamin C Serum. This new Vitamin C serum made in Canada of natural and organic ingredients. Vitamin C is the best element in any beauty set to fight wrinkles and number one ingredient in anti-aging skin care.

I like using this serum, it is so tender – first what comes when you put few drops on your skin. The serum does not have any odor and absorbs pretty fast. You can see the difference to your skin right away; Tangerine Lilly Naturals Vitamin C makes your skin very soft and smooth. It is also very effective in reducing age spots and pigmentation. I definitely have some (I think I am too young for age spots) mostly because of being outside quite long time (even when it is -30C, sun affects your skin).

Tangerine Lilly Serum

Intended to fight multiple aging signs this serum Tangerine Lilly Naturals Vitamin C Serum stimulates collagen production and improves the appearance of the skin. Plus STAY C 50, stabilized form of L-ascorbic acid, is natural anti-acne ingredient.

Every morning I am so looking forward to using Tangerine Lilly Naturals Vitamin C Serum, it makes my skin even and bright every single day, plus it helps to fade pigmentation and acnes.

I know how skeptical about skin care some women like my mom and my aunts calling themselves women after 60. They think that skin care products are for young women and nothing works for them. Right now I am getting the serum to my mom to try and I am sure she would love it.This serum is going to work for any skin type and and age.

For more information about Tangerine Lilly company please visit their web site. Based in Nova Scotia the company offers only high quality products inspire healthy and natural living. With every order of  their Vitamin C Serum every customer receives organic lip balm, such a treat! It is so rich and refreshing, saves my lips during cold Canadian winter ( and spring too).

Hydrate Dry Skin with OZ Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum #momsbeauty

Would you like to keep your skin plump and smooth then it is good time to check OZ Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum. We are all facing the abundance of skin care including serums claiming to make us young and beautiful. While some serums contain a set of features and working in fixing different problems like fine lines, pigmentation and pores and many others all in one, there are products which intended to focus on few certain skin issues. Glad to introduce one of my favorites OZ Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum. This serum is designed to balance skin moisture level, reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Oz Naturals Serum

Getting older bring much more surprises than expected. My skin is not that youthful and plum as 10-15 years ago. I know if I skip my beauty routine in the morning or go to bed without cleansing and moisturizing my skin, I see in the morning the person in the mirror, not my favorite one. Great quality skin care products is what I always looking for and OZ Naturals has really good ones at affordable price. 

I like that OZ Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum made of organic and natural ingredients, and the fresh smell it has makes you feel you are sitting under the tree in a spring garden. I found the best way for me to apply this serum in the morning. Hyaluronic Acid as a major ingredient pulls the moisturizer deeply into the skin to reduce and smooth wrinkles. The serum makes my skin soft and even, I also notice how radiant and bright my skin becomes after using. I find it is better not to apply the serum to treat eye wrinkles, because it keeps under eye area a little dry. The best way to use OZ Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum is after cleansing your face and then add a moisturizer as usual.

Ready to look younger and have refreshing look for spring and summer, increase hydration for your skin and improve elasticity, OZ Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum can help with that. It is one of best seller facial serums on Amazon and the price is pretty good for all the amazing benefits it brings. Check it out here.

How difficult is to breed budgies? Part II #OurPets

Lego City for budgie

Following the story of how we decided to breed budgies we covered in this post earlier: How difficult is to breed budgies? Part I. Now it is time to present the second part of our adventures.

I think we were pretty successful for first timers. We got six chicks out of eight eggs. Second egg was cracked – Zoe or George cracked it accidentally. Seventh egg was infertile.

Girl budgie

As per color - three are copies of George(yellow), two are white and blue and last one - something special. She was with dark skin when born and was different from the rest in everything. Her body is blue turquoise and wings are dark grey – almost black with white feather tips. We call her Maleficent because she is unusual and blackish, but loved her and decided to keep her.

Maleficent

Out of six we got two boys and four girls. It is hard to distinguish baby budgies sex 100%. The rule of thumb is – if cere doesn’t have white spots and white areas around nostrils then it is most likely a boy – otherwise girl. It works in 90% of the cases.

Baby budgie blue Budgie Girl

Even though all babies became quite big and fully covered with feathers – they preferred to stay in nesting box and fed by their parents. They all got out eventually.

Tedd and yellow budgie baby

You cannot imagine how much mess 8 budgies can make, considering six of them are babies. They play with everything including seeds and floor around cage is covered with seeds in two meters radius. They don’t eat seeds; they sit in the feeder and start moving their legs so fast that seeds flying out of the feeder and cage. And they take turns too. We have one feeder with perch and young budgies found that it is fun to squeeze in whole between perch and feeder and they go there one buy one in both direction. Eldest one however became too big that couldn’t get through and stuck every time she tried. In one month she became much bigger than her five year old parents. Even in budgie family first baby gets more food and attention.

Eagles

What happened next is struck me the most. George(dad) started “flirting” with daughters and Zoe(mom) started nipping them. Zoe started bullying her daughters because she became jealous or wanted to show everyone that she is the queen of the cage. Budgie family is different than human: if you can eat by yourself - you are on your own – and there is no more parent-child connection or protection.

All budgie babies

As soon as Maleficent left nesting box – Zoe started next nesting cycle. We found new eggs in nesting box - but we weren’t ready for it. We tired from fist brood: mess, noise and we didn’t know what to do with five babies that we already have. We moved Zoe to a separate cage. If you don’t stop hen, she has eggs until she is done and may even die, but won’t stop. The only way is to take out the nesting box or move her to another cage.

Get Youthful Glow with OZ Naturals Vitamin C Serum #momsbeauty

Spring is already here with warmer weather inviting us to get out and enjoy shiny outdoor. Our skin after long winter is dry and patchy, needs more love and care. I am often asked why we require using serum, if there is already a good moisturizer in our hands. There is no better way to get rid of wrinkles, pigmentation and have radiant youthful skin all in once simply adding a good facial serum to the beauty routine.

Vitamin C Serum OZ Naturals

While the selection of serums on the market is impressive, the first thing is to choose one made of natural and organic ingredient. To date I already tried different serums and various brands, there is always something special for your skin in every serum product. I am sure everyone should find a good quality serum which brings effective results to your skin type. Recently I was lucky to try OZ Naturals - 20% Vitamin C Serum + Hyaluronic Acid + Amino Blend. This serum is a unique combination of ingredients intended aggressively fight all aging skin signs like wrinkles, aging spots, loss of elasticity, so I get smooth and bright skin. An essential vitamin C is powerful antioxidant for the skin which boosts collagen production, and hyaluronic acid to hydrate the skin and retain moisture.

What is special in this serum is that it brings a real youthful glow to your skin. I was very excited to notice how the serum fades dark spots, it takes time to reduce them, just be patient and results will show up. I notice that my skin becomes plump and radiant after using the serum. Facial skin is very delicate and requires the right care. I am glad that OZ Naturals - 20% Vitamin C Serum belongs to the category of skin care that really works and bring visible results to my skin.

Made in USA, OZ Naturals - 20% Vitamin C Serum is one of the best C Serum right now on the market. You can easily find this top seller on Amazon.com or Amazon.ca. Good idea to check it from time to time, when it is on sale the price is really good around $27 with free shipping.

Recover Your Data Using Disk Drill for Windows Free Application

This post brought to you by Disk Drill for Windows, Disk Drill, Disk Drill data recovery, etc. The content and opinions expressed below are that of Teddy Out Ready.

Disk Drill
Data recovery is one of the important tasks needed for different situations. All deleted files like Word documents, Excel files, coding pages, images and videos do not disappear permanently when you push delete button. It is good to have a chance to recover important information and give your files second life.

Another reason why the recovery procedure is needed when a hard drive, flash devices, cameras or memory cards are unreadable or damaged. There are lots of situations when computer data can be lost due to power outage, fire or flooding. We never know what can happen to our data and the best thing is to know how to recover it.

Computer data recovery services are pretty expensive, starting around $250 and up (you can check the prices in your area). My friend tried to get data from her broken computer and was billed with $300 for basic recovery service only.

I was looking for data recovery software when our preschooler accidentally deleted our photo files. I think I was lucky to find very good application called Disk Drill for Windows which is absolutely free to install and use. Disk Drill offers a scan and a recover of the data from virtually any storage device currently exists. The program performs quick and deep scan to make sure no data is lost. In addition to different storage devices Disk Drill works with various file systems: a FAT, exFAT and NTFS.

Disk Drill is quite easy to use, you can filter the storage by file type you need to recover or work with all file types. For media files there is a preview mode where you can select the lost file(s). On top section choose the location where you want the file(s) to be recovered to and the work is done. Everything is pretty clear, but it will be helpful to see some kind of support section how to use the software.

Overall, I think Disk Drill is very cool and much needed application, good thing it is free and full of great features.

Get Gorgeous Look with Thermalabs Organic Self Tanner

What can be better beautiful tanned skin reflecting your sunny beach vacation, good time and ideal memories? While we can easily get beach body during summer time, our Canadian winter “eat” a good portion of our tan. Now it is pretty easy to bring back all summer excitement with Thermalabs Organic Self Tanner. This product, made of certified organic ingredients - Avocado oil, Olive oil, Shea butter, Cocoa seed butter and Aloe leaf juice, gives natural-looking tan making your skin look smooth and even.

Thermalabs Organic Self Tanner

No need to spend hours under the sun to get beautiful tanned skin, a sun exposure can be harmful and not always end-up in good results. Sun burns and damaged skin should not be vacation companions. I found Thermalabs Organic Self Tanner is much safer and easier to use than visiting a tanning salon or spa. Do not be confused with white substance of the tanner, which easily can be considered as a moisturizer.

Right now, when there are still few months left till summer season, I think Thermalabs Organic Self Tanner is a great addition to “getting ready for summer” routine. I see it like a reward for my persistence; I lose weight and get closer to that summer beach body so vigorously advertised across the media. Thermalabs Organic Self Tanner is easy to apply and visible results usually come overnight. I suggest applying Thermalabs Organic Self Tanner for a few times to get the shade you really need. It lasts for two weeks and what I like that it is non-greasy, absorbs fast and moisturize the skin. I also did not notice any irritations and reactions after using the tanner.

For more information about Thermalabs Organic Self Tanner, please visit company website, plus you can easily find their products on Amazon.

Make Beautiful DIY Flowers for Special Events with Bloominous

Wedding is the most wonderful and unforgettable event in people’s lives. We want wedding day to be perfect and do everything for that. While wedding traditions and customs vary greatly between cultures, ethnic groups and countries, one thing stays unchangeable is beautiful flowers. Tulips, roses, chrysanthemums, lilies and many others are to make the special day unique and exceptional.

Bloominous Flowers

Recently, I came across a great website that provides easy DIY floral arrangements kits for weddings and events. Many brides turn to DIY to save costs, but the process of researching, purchasing, and arranging florals often end up causing more stress and dollars. My sister-in-law married last month, even being a designer, it took so much time to prepare floral arrangements. You need to take care about so many things from a photographer, videographer services to a menu selection and arranging invitations, that there is simply not time to handle everything. Plus the floral designer services are not cheap, if you want to have beautiful floral set-ups during the event. Recognizing this need gap, Bloominous is launched in 2014 to give brides an alternative option for DIY wedding flowers.

Bloominous

There are three advantages of using Bloominous for a wedding or event:

Cost Saving:  
  • With Bloominous, brides will be able to save anywhere from 30% to 50% off their original floral budget 
  • Each piece is priced without the typical 300% markup from wedding florists, e.g. $5 boutonnieres, $40 centerpieces, and $50 bouquets
Easy DIY:
  • Most DIY floral services do not send ‘prepped’ flowers, but ours come cut-to-order, dethorned, and trimmed, so brides save time and money 
  • Each kit comes with step-by-step photo instructions for easy assembling within 10 to 20 minutes per piece, as well as flower care products and design tips 
Quality, Professional Design: 
  • All collections featuring specialty flowers are designed florist with 10+ years of experience in event and floral design 
  • It’s not just the flowers—from trends to vases to favors, Bloominous design the whole look for your inspiration, in their offerings and blog 

Bloominous DIY

This 'florist-at-their-fingertips' experience is not to be missed. Bloominous is making DIY fun, easy, and approachable for anyone who wants to try. Check it out here.  My favorite part is Bloominous videos showing step-by-step how to make wonderful flower set ups. Available across US, Bloominous stands behind every product they ship to make floral preparations easy and fast.

Create Delicious and Fun Chocolate Bars with Imports Dragon Chocolate Bar Maker #easychef

Chocolate Bar Maker Teddy

If you are looking for the easy and fun way for creative kids to express themselves and make them feel like real chefs, then check Imports Dragon Chocolate Bar Maker. This easy chef kit has all the tools to create amazing chocolate bars where kids participate in the whole process from the beginning to the end.

Chocolate Bar Maker tools

Always being curious how chocolate bars are made, Teddy was very excited to create his own. First of all you need to choose what molds you would like to use for your creations. Then, pattern tops to make pretty tops for the bars. Next step is to decide what fillings you would like to have. Teddy picked raisins, Teddy bear cookies (nice coincidence) and m&ms. We put our fillings on separate plates for easy picking and decorating our chocolate bars. There are many other fillings can be added to the bars including nuts, corn flakes or marshmallow, everything what kids like. Let them decide.

Easy Squeezer with chocolate Molds for chocolate

Time to make our bars, we filled our Easy Squeezer with plain chocolate, put it in microwave for melting and were about to start our chocolate culinary adventures. Teddy put some fillings into the molds and squeezed melted chocolate to fill them to the top. The fun part was what filling to add, we wanted m&m in one mold and cookies in another one, raisins in third along with nuts.

Easy Squeezer Molds

In 20 minutes our bars were ready to try, one for Mom, one for Dad and one for Teddy. Delicious treats made by our little kid with some adult help. There are endless options how to decorate the chocolate bars, for example, use layers of different colors of chocolate, add various fillings or apply the Deco Nozzle attached to Easy Squeezer to create lines, circles and figures, everything up to your imagination. Since the kit has reusable tools you can create and decorate your bars whenever you want. The Chocolate Bar Maker is perfect kid activity for any occasion like school breaks, friends gathering, birthday parties or rainy weekends.

Chocolate Bars

I like that the kit is designed for little children hands, tool sizes are just right for Teddy to use. The Chocolate Bar Maker includes wrappers to place your creations in and take with you out or make nice gifts for family and friends. They look really cool. You can also personalize the bars adding labels to the wrappers making every bar a double treat.

Disney Cinderella - Favorite Fairy-Tale on a Big Screen #CinderellaMovie

It is nice to see that Disney brings our favorite tales to a big screen and every time it is a gem in acting, costume design and production. If you are ready to cherish your childhood memories but with modern approach how magic works these days, you need to see new live - action Disney movie Cinderella opening today in theatres across North America.

Disney Cinderella

This week we had a chance to attend advance screening of Cinderella which was not limited to screening only. We were also exposed to a red carpet experience when Scotiabank Theatre in Toronto were filled with prominent Canadian media came to celebrate the release of wonderful story about Cinderella, pretty girl whose dreams come true. Plus Lily James, who played Cinderella along with our favorite Social TV Team, opened the screening. I admit it was really “Cinderella-like” having all courage, wish and kindness to be with viewers that day and share all the excitement the fairy tale brings to us.

Ella is a beautiful young woman whose life comes crashing down when her merchant Father (Ben Chaplin) remarries following the tragic death of her Mother. Eager to support her father, Ella welcomes her new Stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and her daughters, Anastasia and Drisella into the family home. After Ella’s father passed away, Ella forced to become a servant in her own home.

It was interesting to follow the adventures of the heroine and I agree that she represents a very strong character. Having courage to overcome all obstacles and have enough kindness to forgive the ones who how not treated you well is quite difficult. I can even say that Ella’s Stepmother with all her strength could not do that. I really liked Cate Blanchett performance, whose Stepmother character shows experienced and beautiful woman but became full of evil intentions.

Disney Cinderella the Royal Ball

The movie costumes and designs are pure elegance and beauty, what to enjoy from the beginning to the end of the film. Cinderella’s dress decorated with Swarovski crystals and tender layers of fabric can take your breath away, especially when Ella dances with the Prince at the Royal Ball. That dance scene was so wonderful that I even forgot that I was watching a movie.

Everyone can find something new and fresh in this favorite fairy tale with pumpkin coach, the Royal Ball, fairy godmother, true love and pretty girl. Follow your heart and you may meet your prince, same as Ella met Kit aka the Prince in the forest.

The movie Cinderella hits theatres March 13, 2015. Do not miss an opportunity to see this new Disney magic story on a big screen.

Ozone Plates for Air Purifiers #ozoneplates

Ozone generators are very effective in reducing mold, mildew, odors, and bacteria. Buying new home or selling existing one, need to bring fresh and clean air to your rooms then ozone generator will be the right solution. Smoking, after fire, beer, alcohol and other smells to get rid of is also ozone generators job. They are perfect for removing strong odours permanently by locating the affected area with a high concentration of ozone and with only one treatment.
   
Ozone Plates
We received two Ozone Plates 4.5" x 4.5" to review, which we gave to our uncle who found them very useful. Being the standard size, the ozone plates are designed to fit in various air purifiers models such as: CleanAir, Eloquent, Apline, Living Air, Spring Air, Flair, Natures Air, Classic Breeze, Salon, Glaster, Apline, Ecoquest, etc. Our uncle uses ozone generator mostly for eliminating household mold and odors. We did not try the ones we received right away. They work perfectly and good quality. Ozone Plates should be changed from time to time depends on a generator, for our model it is 5-6 months with proper cleaning. Another reason of acquiring new plates is when the smell of ozone is not very strong. Our uncle rarely refers to buying items online since he needs to see the product first. This time he is more inclined to do on-line shopping.

Ozone Plates
For Canadian consumers the price for C-Mall Ozone Plates is average one on the market, about CDN $22.99  for two pieces and available on Amazon.ca  with free shipping on orders over CDN$ 25.
