Well... Hello!

Hello everyone! I know it has been a SUPER long time since I have posted on here. A good 6 months or so, which seems crazy to me.

I promise I haven't fallen off the face of the Earth. If you are subscribed to my YouTube channel, then you pretty much are caught up with me. However, if you are not, I have been spending a lot of time working on making YouTube videos. I am taking the time to learn video editing, in which I am still quite a newbie. I am also working on coming up with ideas for content, and taking the time to film them.

Most of you know that I work outside of the home, so trying to juggle everything can be quite hard. I have been working on making a plan on how I can do all of the above, plus more. I even went out and bought myself a really cute planner at Micheal's! How I survived before daily planning is beyond me! It is slowly becoming my new best friend!

Moving on from here, I will be working on integrating my YouTube channel and this blog. The 2 platforms need to become friends! As I get that down pact, I will also be adding in my social media, and working those into the equation as well. It sounds easy, but trust me, it's challenging when you are a one woman show!

I look forward to posting more blogs soon! See you all soon!

Courtney

Why The Litter Genie Is A Cat Owner Must Have! | #StopCatLitterSmell #LitterGenie

It is no secret that I love cats. I am a proud "cat mom" to 4 little balls of fur! As most of us cat owners know, one of the most challenging aspects of owning a cat is dealing with pet odors. I am very strict about keeping my litter boxes clean and tidy. But having 4 cats means that I have 2 litter boxes in my home that I need to care for. Although keeping my litter boxes tidy is no problem, its the trash situation that can sometimes be the cause of my pet odor in my home. For years I have been trying to come up with a way to keep my cat litter trash bucket from having offensive odors. This has been however easier said than done. I have used trash cans, bags, bags inside of trash cans, sprinkling the trash cans with baking soda, you name it, I've tried it.



When I heard about the Litter Genie I was thrilled to give it a try. I learned about the concept and it just seemed like a pure genius idea. This week the kind folks at Litter Genie sent me a Litter Genie pail to try out in my home with my cats. As soon as it arrived, I was anxious to see how it would work!

Setting up the Litter Genie took only minutes. I installed the bag refill pack into the top section of the pail. I followed the instructions and had my bag tied, and ready for use! Fast forward a few hours after my cats had done their business during the day, I was ready to see what the hype was all about. I was able to scoop my litter, and toss it in the pail. Then pulled a lever (I did this twice just to ensure that all waste was gone) and that was it. I opened up the lid after and the waste was out of sight and out of scent! Fast forward again to the next morning when it was time to clean the litter boxes again. I scooped out the waste, lifted the lid and to my surprise, no smell. I repeated the steps as I did the day before, and I was good to go! After 2 days of use, I decided it was time to start a new bag. All I had to do was open the bottom compartment, pull down on the bag, just enough so that I had room to tie off a knot, and cut the bag using the handy cutter which is mounted right in the Litter Genie. Tied a knot in the bag and I was able to take it to my trash can and dump it. Odors were locked in and sealed. After I came back and tied a new knot, the Litter Genie was ready to be used again!



The whole process of the Litter Genie is amazing. It has eliminated the litter box trash can scent that I always struggled to conceal. It is by far a wonderful tool that I highly recommend all cat owners try out!



The good news is that Litter Genie is available in Petco, Pet Smart, Target, Walmart, Amazon.com, Chewy.com and other retailers where pet products are sold. The Litter Genie retails between $14.99 and $16.99 depending on your location. You can also purchase the refills for $5.99 to $35.99 depending on your needs.

My 2017 Monthly Planner | Featuring Tools4Wisdom Planner

2017 is well underway now, so for many of us that meant that it was time to toss our 2016 planners and begin our new year with a new planner.

Being that I do blogging and now YouTube, having a monthly planner is essential for me. It helps me keep track of tasks, when I need to upload content, and things that I need to prepare for in advance. It also gives me a spot to jot down ideas for content, and video ideas. My planner is a major part of my life!

Last year for 2016 I used a smaller planner, which was nice, but I found myself running out of room. I didn't have enough space to write down my daily tasks. There was only a small space for me to write down ideas and miscellaneous things. For 2017 I told myself that this year I would go with a larger planner, and I did just that.The kind folks at Tools4Wisdom Planners kindly sent me one of their 2017 planners to put to the test.

ACTUALLY ORGANIC - 100% PURE MOROCCAN ARGAN OIL | REVIEW


I have been a fan of Argan Oil for years. I was quite excited to try out this one from Actually Organic. I have been using their Argan Oil for the past 3 weeks on my hair, skin, and nails. So let's dig into my thoughts and review!



The bottle is made out of a dark glass which helps keep sunlight out and tampering with the Argan Oil inside. It has a spray pump topper which is nice especially if you are using this for your hair or skin. The overall design of the packaging is attractive and appealing. Simple yet nice. I quite enjoy it!

I tend to have dry hair and dry skin in the winter months. So using Argan Oil is apart of my daily routine. I do also use it on my nails. For my hair, I like to take a dime sized amount and run it through my hair, focusing it on my ends. This helps my hair feel and look better. I also like using it as a hair mask to really let it soak in. For my skin, I use this a lot on my face and elbows. Those areas get the driest so they need a little extra moisture. I enjoy using it when I get out of the shower and I am getting ready for bed at night. I sleep with it on and wake up with nice soft skin. Finally for my nails, I tend to use this around my cuticles during a manicure, or directly on my nails after I use a nail polish remover. The Argan Oil just helps nourish my hair, skin and nails.





This Argan Oil has hardly any scent, which I really like. It soaks into the skin very quickly and leaves no greasy residue. A little goes a long way which is fantastic as well!

Overall I am very pleased with this brand of Argan Oil. It works well, and it is helping my hair, skin and nails look their best!
