I Ate Santa's Cookies #noregrets Christmas onesie

Christmas is just around the corner and now is the time to start seeking out those cute and adorable holiday wear for your little ones.  I love seeing all the matching onesies, tshirts and pant sets, especially those with adorable and funny sayings.

This onesie, "I Ate Santa's Cookies, #NoRegrets" is so freakin cute and I think this is my favorite saying on a onesie.  This onesie was created by CorasChicBoutique Etsy Store and she has 62 different items in her store, 22 of which are holiday themed.

This onesie is very sparkly and festive, with glittery red and green writing.  It features 3 cookies, one of which has a bite taken out of it.  We all know that hashtags (#) are a big thing nowadays, and what better way then to showcase that on a baby onesie and t-shirt.  

The onesie is a cotton onesie that has red and green glitter heat transfer vinyl. This onesie will match any pair of jeans or red and green pants for the holidays. Why not spruce this onesie up with a cute glittery red tutu or a pair of ruffled bottom pants for that little girl?

Either way, the message will get across when your little one wear this onesie and will have everyone laughing, ooohing and awwing over the adorable attire. You have got to see this in person.  I just love the bright lettering, that is so perfectly adhered to this onesie.  The glittery vinyl makes the whole onesie pop and just seems so holiday-ish!

You can check out this onesie, as well as others, at CorasChicBoutique Etsy Shop...just click on the link below.

The Purpose of Dental Veneers and Who Qualifies

In our culture, great emphasis is placed on beauty. Patients of all ages often ask their dentists how to enhance their smiles. Some people believe that a healthy smile may lead to professional success while others are driven by their desire for personal improvement.  Regardless of the reason, many patients are now aware of the appearance of their smiles and seek various ways for its enhancement.

One of the most popular aesthetic dentistry procedures are veneers. It is a conservative alternative to more complex procedures such as crowns. Depending on the type of the veneer, only minimal reduction of the tooth structure is required. Dental veneers can auspiciously hide minor imperfections, such as small cracks and chips, and they can add to the visual value of the mouth.

Severe stains, which cannot be removed by a prophylactic cleaning, can be successfully covered with porcelain veneers. Small interproximal spaces (diastemas) can also beautifully correct the condition. In majority, the veneers Charlotte NC are implemented to mask discolorations that are resistant to bleaching. 

A good candidate for this procedure exhibits signs of impeccable oral hygiene. Their teeth are not mobile, and enough of the tooth structure is left to accept the veneer. Large fractures or excessive spacing are often recommended for crowns, bridges or implants. In addition, a good candidate will not have any detrimental habits such as bruxism (clenching and grinding) or pencil chewing and nail biting. 

There are many advantages to dental veneers. Most obvious one is the improved aesthetics. However, the veneers also restore the functionality of the mouth. They are often used to close the open spaces in between the teeth where food debris typically harbors resulting in gum disease. They can also improve the speech patterns by alleviating the whistling frequently heard while people with diastemas are engaged in conversations. Veneers are also stronger then composite restorations and have excellent long-term prognosis. 

If considering the placement of dental veneers, the patients are well educated by their dentist about pros and cons of this type of therapy. Dental veneers provide color stability and better function of the mouth. They are a great substitute for lengthy orthodontic treatment which is usually implemented in cases of tooth crowding. Minor crowding discrepancies can be quickly corrected with dental veneers. Along with a diligent care at home combined with regular visits with the dentist and dental hygienist, many patients enjoy their newly acquired smiles for several years.

Perfect Pizza Every Time!

How many of you use a pizza pan when cooking your pizza?  Well...our family kinda does...but it's more like a cookie sheet or grill mat.  How does your pizza turn out?  Okay?  Excellent?

Well, let me tell ya...when you start cooking your pizza on a pizza stone, you'll never go back to your old ways again!  This pizza stone shown here, is Culinary Couture Pizza Stone.  It is 15" round - plenty big enough for store bought or hand made pizzas.

The Culinary Couture pizza stone has a pretty good weight to it and did you know, it can withstand baking temps of up to 1000 degrees Fahrenheit? It's very durable, difficult to break and make any pizza crust crispy.  The taste you get from your pizza, using the Culinary Couture pizza stone is like no other.  You can even prepare french fries, bread, chicken nuggets or just about any other food you normally bake, using the pizza stone.

This pizza stone is 3/4 inch thick, thicker than some pizza stones and allows you to cook your favorite foods all year round.  It's perfect for any oven or grill and comes very well packaged in a secure, high quality packaging enforced with polyethylene foam.

I can see myself using this for cookies, as well as pizza, every time!  Now, I can enjoy a stone crust pizza in my own home and this will become one of my favorite kitchen needs!

Ozeri INSTAVAC Nesting Food Storage Container Set

I LOVE food storage containers that come in sets; better yet, I love storage containers that are nestled inside each other, has a vacuum seal and are not half way small, where you can't hold very much food.

That is why the Ozeri INSTAVAC Nesting Food Storage Container Set has me hooked!  I love how easy these snap lids open and I don't have to struggle with them. Not only that, but these gems comes with a Date Dial! WHAT???  Yes...a Date Dial!  On the top of the lid, there is not only a vacuum seal valve, but a little dial that you can turn, to the date you put the product inside.  When you go back to your fridge a couple days later and notice some strawberries in this set, but really can't remember WHEN or HOW OLD they are, this dial will let you know the date this was stored.  SO COOL!

Here's a little more info on the Ozeri INSTAVAC Nesting Food Storage Set:

     *Patented Valve:  reduces air volume so naturally occuring bacteria is less 
                                able to grow, and food stays fresh longer.

     *Date Dial:          to track the number of food storage days.

     *Release Valve:    prevents spills and splatters in microwave.

     *Wave Pattern:     on bottom keeps cut fruit and veggies elevated from
                                 water and juices.

*21 Cup (5.0 Liters)
*12.7 Cups (3.0 Liters)
*  6.3 Cups (1.5 Liters)
*  3.0 Cups (0.7 Liters)

I love that I can save space and money with these containers.  Being that these nests inside one another, I won't have to worry about having four separate bowls, taking up all my cabinet space and I can keep them all in one place.

Enjoying Family Time with Fun Outdoor Games

Family gatherings can be ideal occasions to relax, enjoy the company of your loved ones, and spend hours playing games while making memories.  Trying to keep everyone packed into the house can be a challenge, however.  Rather than spend time in a cramped and crowded home, you can get everyone outside for some recreation by setting up games designed for outdoor use.

When you want to play games that go beyond croquet or horseshoes, you may wonder what other options are out there for you to consider.  You may get everyone involved in the fun when you bring out gear like Frisbees, cornhole sets, and other games that your family can play together.

The sets are also available for a variety of prices so you can select one that will give you the value you want.  You can select the one that best aligns with what you want to spend when you browse the options listed on the website.

Learning How to Play

As popular as cornhole is, you might not be familiar with how to play it.  When you want to play by the rules and give everyone an equal chance of winning, you can learn what those rules are when you visit the website.

The site explains how to play cornhole competitively yet fairly.  It also explains the variations of the game so that you can up the ante if you want to make the game more exciting.

How I Got My Old Jewelry Looking New Again!

I have so much jewelry, that I really can't tell you the exact amount of pieces I have.  I mean...come on!  How many of us gals has several places we keep jewelry; even a place (like a spare bedroom) where we hang jewelry that doesn't have a place in our jewelry box or on the numerous 'hooks' of our favorite pieces?

I know I do!  I've even came a cross a few earrings, bracelets and necklaces - hidden in another room, that I almost forgot about.  After these pieces sit for several months (in my case, some of them for years), they tend to become a little...dusty...maybe dingy looking.

Sure, I've used Walmart's jewelry cleaner here and there, but very seldom. They seem to come half way clean again, or at least, better looking than before. BUT...after I tried Quick N' Brite Jewelry Cleaner Kit, I was excited!  Jewelry that was dingy looking, instantly turned new looking again!  I'm talking about pieces that I haven't worn in like years!

Quick N' Brite is a non-toxic, no harsh chemicals and ammonia free jewelry cleaner that brings back life to dingy jewelry.  It's a powerful cleaner that family safe with no worries about harsh chemicals.  Being that this jewelry cleaner contains no harsh chemicals, this is perfect for your precious stones and pearls, without worrying about the cleaner harming them.  

Before Quick N' Brite                                                                                       

                                                After Quick N' Brite

This Quick N' Brite an also be used in Ultrasonic Machines!  The only thing that Quick N' Brite WILL NOT do, is get rid or clean tarnish.  It is not a tarnish remover, but a cleaner that revitalizes your dingy jewelry. If I had only one downfall or con about this cleaner, is that it requires a little longer for the jewelry to sit in the solution....maximum of 6 minutes.

Before Quick N' Brite                                                

                                                After Quick N' Brite

With Quick N' Brite, it is recommended that you place your jewelry in the solution (pour a little in a bowl or cup, enough to cover jewelry) and stir. Let it sit for 3 minutes and stir again.  Remove after another 3 minutes.  Although it's not a 10-20 second dip for cleaner jewelry, this jewelry cleaner kit DOES work better and gives me a more desirable result than the store bought brand.
