Give a Child the Gift of Health w/ Walgreens' #GetAShot, Give a Shot Campaign

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #GetAShot #CollectiveBias

We are always highlighting a good cause, especially when you can help someone by doing something you'd normally do anyway. We love to celebrate charitable efforts like shop for a cause, tweet for a cause, etc, which is why we're highlighting Walgreen's #GetAShot, Give a Shot Campaign. It's getting to be the time of seasonal flu and time to get yourself and your family immunization shots. The great part of this campaign is that for every flu shot or any other immunization you get at Walgreens, they will help provide a lifesaving vaccine to a child in a developing country through the UN Foundation’s Shot@Life program. It's hard to believe that not every child has access to medicine for preventable diseases but that my dear readers is a harsh reality. While diseases like whooping cough, measles, and meningitis are curable with a short walk to your neighborhood Walgreens for a shot, it is not so easy for families in developing countries.


Did you know that 1 in 5 children around the world still have no access to the lifesaving vaccines? That two of the most common causes of child death are the very treatable pneumonia and diarrhea? That 1.5 million children die every year from vaccine-preventable diseases? That's one child dying every 20 seconds. No family should go through the heartache of losing a child, especially when it's because of something that is preventable with an immunization shot.


With over 8,215 drugstore locations nationwide, Walgreens is not only the most convenient location to receive these lifesaving vaccines for you and your family, it is also the most philanthropic. Your immunization can help this very charitable campaign to reach its goal of providing up to 3 million vaccines to kids that need it most. Walgreens offers vaccines for several of the most well-known preventative diseases with no appointment necessary and provides you with all the information you need to stay healthy.


So while you're picking up your essentials at Walgreens, make a pledge to get your flu shot at their Immunization Center and help provide the gift of health and possibly life to child.

Zipz Premium Single Serve Wines | You Can Take it With You

Have you ever attended an event or party where the only alcohol they're serving is exactly what you don't drink? As Bloggers, we get invited to many things but a lot of the time it's an alcohol-sponsored event, and if you're like us, you do not like beer, whiskey, or gin. As lovers of wine, we were super excited to find out that something as wonderful as Zipz Wines exists. Zipz Wine is an amazing, premium, single-serve wine that you can enjoy indoors, outdoors and on the go thank to its innovative and non-traditional packaging.

Zipz Wines is available in four varieties, a 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, 2012 Chardonnay, 2012 Pinot Grigio, and a 2011 Merlot, all of which come individually wrapped and covered in a patented Clean Wrap™ that keeps the wine fresh and the glass clean, making Zipz perfect for enjoyment anywhere.


You may be thinking, "but what about the taste?" well, all four wines are absolutely delicious. The Chardonnay has aromas of tropical fruit with notes of cinnamon, vanilla bean, lemon grass with hints of hazelnut and cloves. This medium weight white wine boasts crisp citrus, melon, pear and crème fraiche flavors. The Cabernet Sauvignon delivers varying aromas of black cherry, blackberry, cassis and vanilla with various layers of spice and a hint of herbs. A multi-layered, medium-bodied wine that boasts textures of ripe blackberry, mocha, toffee and vanilla. The deep, rich, ruby-colored Merlot features warm cherry aromas, accented with notes of mocha, red licorice, sage and toffee with flavors of black cherries and plums that are balanced with caramel and toffee from the oak. Last but certainly not least, the clean and crisp Pinot Grigio gets a bit tropical with both aroma and flavor.Notes of mango, pear, orange spice, lemongrass and pineapple perfectly compliment the  flavors of tropical fruit, apples, pears, and a nice orange citrus note that is balanced with minerality and a wonderful round finish.


How portable are Zipz Wines and where did they go with us? We took it to our front porch, the racetrack, and a friend's house, traveling with ease in our handbag with no fear of spillage. Another key note is you can securely reseal your Zipz wine to save it for later without spilling a drop or having your wine get stale. You can't tilt a half full, regular glass of wine without losing the contents.


Zipz Wine is currently available in several states or you can just buy it online at Zipz Wine or Amazon.com. A case of Zipz Wines comes with 12 glasses and retails for $39.99, that's less than $3.50 a glass. That alone is a reason to raise a glass and toast to this innovation and non-traditional creation.

Reverse Glycation Damage w/ Morinda's TruAge Skin AGE Therapy Gel

Have you ever thought what your true age is? I'm not talking about how old you are, or how old you feel, but your body's real age. Did you know things like sugar and processed foods can affect your body's A.G.E (Advanced Glycation End-product)? A.G.E's are proteins or lipids that become glycated after exposure to excess sugars and can develop or worsen many degenerative diseases such as Diabetes, Arteriosclerotic Vascular Disease, Chronic Renal Failure and Alzheimer. But fear not, thanks to Morinda, there are several ways to defend your body against this damaging bonding of sugar molecules in the body. Along with their strengthening and balancing beverages, and powdered shakes, Morinda launched their newest AGE fighting product, TruAge Skin AGE Therapy Gel, a state of the art skin care product designed to help you reverse the external effects of AGE damage and glycation.


TruAge Skin AGE Therapy Gel "helps to reverse the external effects of damage caused by advanced glycation end-products (AGEs). This damage is also known as glycation. AGE Therapy Gel improves the skin’s appearance while boosting its protective layer. This light, moisturizing gel works by disrupting AGE formation, while soothing and repairing stressed or damaged skin." We've been using this anti-aging gel on our face for several weeks and are truly please with the results. We were initially worried how our oily skin would react to this new product but lightweight gel didn't clog my pores or made me feel oily at all.

Boasting the benefits of Noni fruit juice, Cornelian cherry fruit extract, Olive leaf extract, Blueberry fruit extract, and Cranberry fruit extract, this first topical TruAge product soothes, repairs and moisturizes stressed or damaged skin leaving you with fewer wrinkles, age spots, and fine lines. It's also great for acne-prone skin and enlarged pores pores. AGE Therapy Gel is available now exclusively at the Morinda Online Store for $42.00 for a 750ml tube.

Back-to-School Style & Fall Fashion Trends from Kmart Fashion

It's just about that time of cooler temperatures, and leaves changing color; and just as the trees get ready to change and shed their leaves, it is time to shed your summer wardrobe and replace it with fall looks. We've already showed you a few brand options and will continue with more like the labels available at Kmart. Today we highlight some of our favorite pieces from Route 66, Dream Out Loud, Sofia Vergara, Attention, and Jaclyn Smith.

ROUTE 66 - We found ourselves intrigued by the fall tops and outerwear from the Route 66 fall 2014 offerings. With looks that are perfect for class, hanging out, and the weekend, you're sure to find a few fall favorites. Details present is the collection include sheer, floral crochet, faux distressed leather sleeves, graphic sweatshirts and tees, and our favorite, splattered plaid effect.



DREAM OUT LOUD - while lace details dominated our clothing favorites from Dream Out Loud, we loved the tribal prints that were dominant in the bag collection. We loved the floral and plaid tops with lace inserts as layering pieces, they pair perfectly with jeans and would look great under the Dream Out Loud sheer Bomber Jacket. There's more great back-to-school looks to be found here.




SOFIA VERGARA - you can always count on the Sofia Vergara collection to bring vibrant colors and sultry looks. We're loving the pencil skirt with snakeskin print and its color block details, the moto-styled faux leather jacket, leggings with faux leather panels, and the abstract animal print pants.



ATTENTION - this remains our favorite label from Kmart because of its fresh, edgy offerings. This season, their outerwear is blowing us over. We love the modern take on classic car coat - it's quilted, boasts striking gold-tone hardware and an asymmetrical zippered front. We loved the Merlot-hued jacket for its fusion of moto-style and bomber jacket details and our favorite, the beautiful camel-colored, color-block beauty. Tops and dresses are bold, eye-catching, and graphic, perfect for those who want to stand out.



BONGO - it's all about standing out for the Bongo Fall 2014 collection, from clothing to shoes, they want you to make a statement with bold prints and abstract art-inspired pieces. Wear a floral print in a new way with the comfy sweatshirt with chiffon front panel, celebrate your edginess with a beaded and sparkly skull sweatshirt, show your wild side with a colorful animal print, and top it off with a printed shoe. These will certainly get the right attention walking the school halls.



JACLYN SMITH - we always associated the Jacklyn Smith label with an older set but with their fall 2014, we saw lots of hot trends and fresh, youthful and playful pieces. We're in love with the adorable graphic puppy sweatshirt, the utility shirts with fun, all-over prints - we love the fox print, and we suggest also grabbing the gold leaf and the floral. Another favorite is the above chiffon shirt with the bird print on one side and graphic square print on the other, mixing prints is key this season and this shirt does it well. We love the addition of the purple tweed blazer draped over it for a chic look.


These are just a small sampling on what Kmart fashion has in store for you this fall.Check out a few more of Kmart's fall 2014 offerings below.  Any favorite looks or pieces?
