As Seen on Oprah...Emu Oil

I was first introduced to Emu Oil a few years ago. My eighteen month old daughter had fallen on a glass and got a severe wound on her chin. I was desperate. I searched everywhere for something that would help reduce the scarring. After hours of searching the internet, and a few conversations with the owner of a local natural foods store who swore by it for scarring as well its anti-aging properties, I decided to give Emu Oil a try.

Within a few weeks her scar started to lighten and soften. I was so impressed that I decided to try it as a facial moisturizer. I have naturally dry skin and it soaked into my skin instantly. It wasn't greasy and smoothed my itchy skin instantly. I was hooked. I have been using it for two years now. My skin is softer, smoother and my crows’ feet and laugh lines are less noticeable. I have been using it religiously ever since I saw how well it worked for my daugher.
Needless to say, I was thrilled when I learned about this line of Anti Aging Skin Care Products made with Emu oil and wanted to share them with you.

The product line includes facial moisturizers, pain relief rubs, an exfoliant, a cleanser and more...

What Will Those Designer Jeans Actually Cost You?

by Traci Anderson | More from this Blogger

I had a college friend who had an annoying little habit. Whenever it was time to pay the rent, buy groceries, or split the utility bills she would say something like, "well, there goes seven hours worth of tips" (she was a waitress).

When we went shopping and she was debating on whether or not to purchase a pair of designer jeans or ones from a discount store like Wal-Mart she would ask us, "do you think they are worth five hours of housekeeping"? (She cleaned hotel rooms too). It was annoying because she was constantly calculating every purchase with the amount of work she had to do to earn it. Sometimes she cracked us up too. After final exams she swigged back a few beers and exclaimed, "those were soooo worth the five toilets I had to scrub to earn them".

Bismarck, ND - Here We Come!

It's time for spring break where normal people travel South or West, actually just about anywhere warm for some fun in the sun. Not me. I am headed to Minnesota via North Dakota. I take this 12 hour journey every few months to visit my family and friends.

Normally, I leave during the kiddo's nap time and drive through the night (12 hours). Yep, I am insane. A few months ago we encountered a snowstorm in North Dakota. My husband and I spent 16 hours in our mini-van with two toddlers. Talk about insane...needless to say, it WON’T happen again.

This time, I am not taking any chances. I spent the last few days searching for inexpensive hotel rates in Bismarck, North Dakota which is the mid-point of my trip. I checked rates at Travelocity, Expedia, Orbitz and Hotwire and wasn't thrilled with the prices.

This afternoon, I tried a site I was unfamiliar with called Hotel Reservations.com. Not only was the site super-simple to navigate...but I saved at least 10 bucks on the rates quoted by the other sites. I am thrilled! While I am not going to be enjoying any "fun in the sun" like many of you...now, I am going to take my 10 bucks, buy myself a margarita and lounge by the hotel pool! =)

If you are planning to travel this summer and want great rates for your Hotel Reservations check out HotelReservations.com. They also offer great rates for world wide travel...in case you want to travel somewhere that is more exotic than Bismarck, North Dakota.

4/6/07 – Post Update

I just wanted to update my post to let you know that I had a wonderful stay at the Super 8 in Bismarck. Honestly, I was a bit reluctant to stay in a 1 star hotel, but Hotel Reservations.com offers reviews too. The hotel was inexpensively priced and the reviews were good, so we stayed there. Ironically, the least-expensive hotel was actually the cleanest I’d ever stayed in! The reservation process was smooth and simple and I even had a play-pen waiting for me in my room. I will definitely use the site for my next reservation!
