The Benefits Of Attending A Blogger Conference-ShiftCon 2016 Eco-Wellness Influence Conference

This will be my 6th conference. Scroll down to the end of this post for a code to save $50 off a ticket.




  Many bloggers question if there are any benefits to attending conferences. They question is it worth it to spend money on the conference, hotel and airline ticket. I too had all these questions and did not think it was worth the money to attend a blogger conference, that is until last year. Last year with the persuasion of my husband, I attending my first conference. I am so glad my husband said I deserve a vacation by myself as he took time off from work so I could go to New York for my first blogging conference. My first conference did cost some money but it was so worth the cost. I gained information and hooked up with some brands. I also had a great time meeting other bloggers. The parties and food at the event made this trip so worth it. It was a vacation/business trip (yes, you can write off the expenses of the trip) that I am glad I took. So did this trip help me with my website? It sure did! I started getting lots of work from companies, some were product but others were paid in cash. Six months after this conference, I had earned back the expenses of this conference. My website was now a full-time job that I loved. I was hooked on attending conferences, not only for experience but also for the fun. I have since attended four more conferences since my first. Each conference has brought me more income and experience. I now put aside some of my income from my website to attend at least one conference a year. These conferences motivate me to work harder on my website so I can make the money to go.



 So if you are ready to attend your first conference to bring your website to the next step or if you know the benefits of conferences, I have an awesome one to tell you about. The ShiftCon 2016 Eco-Wellness Influence Conference is one I will be attending this December. My passion is healthy living and this conference is all about that and more. If you don't write about healthy living, I say still attend as this conference is all about healthy food, (we all can eat healthier) wellness, health, and the environment. It is a great way to hook up with companies who are looking for people like us to promote their products on our websites.ites. These companies will have plenty of products ( in the swag bags and in the sponsor hall) for us to take home to try and write about. As of this time they are expecting 40-60 booths in the sponsor hall. You will learn at the workshops and have a ton of fun at the parties. It will simply be a business trip that feels like a vacation. The best part is you can write these expenses off on your taxes. This will be the first year I will have to pay taxes for my website as I am now earning money from attending my first conference last year.

ShiftCon is the only social media conference focusing on food, wellness, health, and the environment. This conference blends workshops, networking, parties, and intense collaboration of changemakers all over in one place. Bloggers and other social media professionals participate and collaborate with each other to inspire and empower each other to create effective communication and take their profession to the next level. Attendees participate in workshops, learn from professionals, discuss their niche and value systems, and decide on themes to collaborate on in the following year. This is a powerful event meant to organize the eco-wellness niche as a powerful community online.

Check out the list of speakers at the Shiftcon conference. JP Sears will be speaking on Saturday!
                                            https://shiftconmedia.com/speakers/


The conference will be held at the gorgeous Hilton New Orleans Riverside and you can get a room for a great deal until October 15th, 2016


So take a leap of faith and attend your first blogging conference. If not for the learning and potential to grow your website, do it for a much-deserved vacation for you. Bring along the family or just go by yourself. Your family will find plenty to do in New Orleans while you attend the conference. My family went with me on a conference last year in San Diego and loved exploring the town.

Now do you want to save $50 off a ticket for this awesome conference? 

Then use code VMOMKNOWSBEST at checkout. These tickets are selling fast, so I would not wait. 




Know When Advance Ovulation Test

                      How I wish I knew about this product when I was trying to have a baby.


  I may be past baby making days, although I would not mind adding another baby to the family. I remember the frustrations of trying to get pregnant with my youngest two boys. They were a long time in the making. My son number three took a year and a half to conceive. I remember using ovulation testing sticks to pinpoint the best day to make a baby. Those sticks were expensive and hard to use. You had to use them at certain times of the day and I could not drink any water for several hours to get the best reading. Then there was the reading of the sticks, is that line dark or will it get darker. I hated all the second guessing and the stress of "baby dancing" on the right day. I always wished there was an easier way to tell if I was ovulating like a dot on my hand. Well, I discovered an easier way to tell if you are ovulating and it is reusable, unlike those testing sticks.


      KnowWhen  is an advance ovulation test that uses your saliva to pinpoint your 5 most fertile days. I just love that you use a drop of spit in the morning on this tube that has a green light. The tube will show you a pattern on the top that you compare to a chart on the package. That sounds so easy to me and the best part is it is reusable so no having to be embarrassed every month like I was when I bought those testing sticks.  The KnowWhen test also comes with a nice case to store it in too.


You can also download an app on your Smartphone to track your ovulation cycle too. This test is also great if you are not trying to get pregnant as the test will tell you which days to avoid.

YES - the answer’s in your saliva
YES - test is totally reusable for years
TRUE - it’s clinically proven to have 98.9% accuracy
YES - your personalized fertility monitor app’s included for easy tracking 
TRUE - it’s safe, natural and easy to use
YES – rated best ovulation predictor kit 2016

I Don't Sweat- I Glow! #DoDeoBetter



Not all deodorants are created equally


Post sponsored by Mirum Shopper. Opinions are 100% my own.



  I am one of the lucky people who does not sweat, I glow. I usually do not experience any wetness on my clothing. I can go for a five-mile run and not experience one bit of wetness. Now before you think, lucky you, just stop as I do experience smell and irritation on my underarm pits. I don't know if it has something with living in the desert of New Mexico or it is just my body. I think it has something to do with my body type as my husband and teen can sweat a bunch in this dry heat. Not sweating does create problems for me as I tend to forget to put on my deodorant before I go running. I then get home and my armpits are hurting and kind of stinky. So I either hop in the shower and that can hurt my tender armpits more or I soothe them with Care Deodorant. I then place my deodorant right next to my toothbrush so I don't forget to wear it again.

  Everyone sweats differently. Some people perspire, some stink, some produce buckets of water, while others have sensitive skin. I am glad there are many types of deodorant so everyone can smell and feel good. People have different needs when it comes to  sweat/odor protection. What works for the sweaty runner may not work for the person who has a long day at the office. I am glad that Walgreens carries many types of deodorant solutions so we ladies/guys can find the product that is best for us. They also have an awesome sale right now so you can stock up on your favorite deodorant product.


People sweat in many different ways. Check out the line of Do Deo Better products.

 Care Deodorants

My favorite #DoDeoBetter product is the Care Deodorant. My sensitive underarms need the extra care along with some great scent. These products come in many great scents and go beyond wetness protection. I love that they soften and moisturize my underarms. My favorite coconut scent smells so good and it makes me want to apply it every morning.


Dry Spray 

The Dry Sprays great for people who have busy mornings. This spray goes on quickly and drys right away. That way you don't have to wait to get dress, just spray and pull on that shirt. I love that these offer 48-hour protection against wetness and odor. That way if I forget to put on my deodorant the next day, I am still covered against stink.


Motion Activated

 These are great for those people who are always on the go. The Motion Activated deodorant detects movements and keeps you dry & smelling great with its Motionsense® technology. It also offers 48-hour protection so you can go from the office to the gym and not have to worry about any odor.


Clinical Protection

Those extra sweaty people no longer need to feel embarrassed by wetness. They can get clinical strength wetness protection and a fresh scent without a special trip to the doctor.



                                                    So what are your sweat/odor concerns?

                                          What deodorant product are you interested in trying?




Hurry on over to Walgreens and take advantage of this great sale before it ends on 10/1/16. When you buy two participating deodorant products they are -buy one get one 50% off and you also get 1000 bonus points. This is a great time to stock up on your favorite deodorant products!

Payton's Sweetness On A Ritz - Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Sandwiches


Football season is here and I have a delicious dessert that is perfect for a party. I made these chocolate delights after my family's favorite football player- Walter Payton. Although Payton is playing football in heaven, our family still thinks about him when we watch the Bears play. These scrumptious chocolate covered peanut butter sandwiches are so easy to make and the gang will love them. The salt of the crackers combine so well with the chocolate for a wonderful taste. If you love peanut butter cups then you have to try this. I made a batch for my family the other day and they were gone by the next day. My husband said I need to make them for our next football party.

All you need for these delicious chocolate covered crackers is a box of Ritz crackers, peanut butter, and milk chocolate chips.



 Payton's Sweetness On A Ritz
Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Sandwiches

Makes 16
Ingredients:
2 cups milk chocolate chips
1 jar creamy peanut butter
32 Ritz crackers
Directions:
1.  Spread some peanut butter onto a cracker and sandwich together with another cracker.
2. Repeat until all the crackers are made into sandwiches with the peanut butter. You will not use all the peanut butter so save the rest for sandwiches or another recipe.                                                        
3. Place chocolate chips over a double boiler and melt. You can also melt the chocolate in the microwave.                                                                                                                                                 4. Once the chocolate has melted, using a small pair of tongs, or tweezers, dip the  peanut butter sandwiches into the chocolate until completely covered.                                                                       5. Shake off any excess chocolate and place onto a parchment lined baking sheet.                                 6. Repeat with the remaining sandwiches and set aside to dry, about an hour. You can also place the tray into the fridge to set faster.

Garden Of Life Raw Organic Protein Giveaway


 I love that my body is strong and I can exercise every day. I love that a plant-based protein gives my muscles what they need to be strong so I can have fun exercising. Today I decided to go on a bike ride and the place I wanted to explore was a trail that I had seen on my last ride. To get to this trail it meant a bike ride up a hill that was 2 miles long. That seemed like a fun way for me to get my legs and arms stronger as it meant a good strenuous workout. I rediscovered that biking is a good form of exercise when I visited West Palm beach last month and took a bike exercise class. The trainer showed me some moves that took my biking to a whole new level. So I biked up that hill and reached my destination. This pathway in the  desert of Albuquerque, NM was calling my name as I wanted to hike up those rock formations. So I walked my bike on the dirt pathway and then parked it as I climb up the formations. What I saw at the top was awesome.


 Just look at my view, more paths just calling my name. The mountains seem to be very cloudy today.


Here are some desert plants that I saw. I just love how these plants survive with very little water. My boys would have loved all these rocks. Next time I will bring them along.


I think this is my favorite desert plant. These purple flowers only stay on the plant for about one week so I made sure to get a picture of this the other day when I was out running.


So how do you like to exercise outdoors?

Ice Scream You Scream We All Scream For Probotics

By now you know that I love probiotics.



   As you can see from all my writing that I love probiotics and their awesome benefits. I just love how probiotics have helped my children be happier and healthier. So I am always on the lookout for new ways to get my boys to take their daily probiotics. One day they want to take their probiotic in a cherry chewable and the next day they decide they are tired of that chewable. So I like to keep several varieties of probiotics in the house in different flavors so they can decide which form and flavor they want for the day. If that what it takes to get them to take a daily supplement that keeps their tummy happy and to keep them healthy, then I will keep several different probiotics in the cabinet. My husband is the worse of all the boys as he will not take a pill form probiotic and will only take a chocolate probiotic. I want to keep him healthy too and keep the bacteria under control in his mouth so I keep him happy and buy the chocolate probiotic.

  You can imagine my excitement when I discovered a new flavor and form of probiotics! I discovered a probiotic that is soft and creamy and tastes like white chocolate vanilla ice cream. So now I have UP4 Kids Cubes in the cabinet to give my boys another delicious way to take their daily probiotics. This soft chewable even has bone support in it. I have never seen vitamin D3 added to a probiotic and I like that. That way my boys are getting an additional supplement to support healthy bone growth! They are also getting the superstrains of Lactobacillus acidophilus DDS®-1 and Bifidobacterium lactis for full digestive and immune support. My boys like that they can have a delicious vanilla chocolate/ice cream cube in the morning. Oh, by the way, this cube is also sugar-free! I like that this small piece of deliciousness keeps their gut happy. A happy gut makes a happy body! A happy body is a healthy body!


  I no longer have to remind my little and big boys to take their probiotics every day. I caught my husband sneaking the boys UP4 Kids Cubes  the other day but that is ok as I enjoy them too. You can find these delicious chews at many stores like Target and Sprouts. They are also sold online. Click on the below link to discover all the many stores that carry UP4 Kids Cubes.

                           http://up4probiotics.com/supplement/where-to-buy-up4/



  Another wonderful thing is for every purchase of the 60 count carton of UP4™ KIDS CUBES, UP4™ donates 25¢ to Vitamin Angels. Vitamin Angels is a nonprofit organization that delivers life-saving vitamin and minerals to at-risk mothers and children. How cool is that! Your kids/husbands get a delicious vanilla chocolate/ice cream chew and other kids get life-saving vitamins.

Easy Peanut Butter Thai Noodles

     I love using this flavorful sauce to create a fast and easy delicious dinner.


   I may work at home but life still gets crazy here. The kids get home from school and I am still busy working on my computer. I get them started on their homework while I finish up my work. The next thing I know it is 5:30 PM and my husband will be home in 15 minutes. Yikes, I don't even have dinner ready, yet alone what I am going to make. The panic sets in as I know if dinner is not made or in the process of being made then hubby will start snacking as after a long day of work he is hungry. Have no fear, I have an easy and fast dinner up my sleeve that my husband will think I spent all day on. I always have certain items in my pantry and fridge for days that I don't have time to cook. The first item is a delicious Thai Peanut cooking sauce that adds an awesome exotic flavor to meat, veggies, tofu, noodles and more. This gluten free cooking sauce tastes just like my homemade Thai peanut butter sauce that I use when I make spring rolls. I like San-J's sauce better as my takes a long time to make. The next ingredient is ramen noodles. These are a staple in my house as my boys can cook these in the microwave for an easy snack. I also always have fresh veggies like baby carrots and broccoli in the fridge.The last ingredient in my fast meal tofu. I love cooking with tofu so I always have a package or two in my fridge.


  The Thai Peanut sauce is just one of the many gluten free, non-GMO cooking sauces that San-J produces. I love easy it is to add great flavor to my meals with these cooking sauces. The Thai Peanut sauce is my favorite and I use it in so many dishes like spring rolls, tofu, vegetables, stir fry, noodles, and even pizza. San-J has so many delicious recipes on their website that helps get me cooking on nights when I don't feel like cooking. Take a look at some of the other cooking sauces than San-J makes. These are just some of the many Gluten Free and Non-GMO sauces that they carry. Their product line up includes table condiments, marinades, salad dressings, soups, sauces, and rice crackers, there's something just right for every meal! You can find their products at most stores too, like Target, Whole Foods, Kroger, Sprouts, and Albertsons.



So now onto that easy fast delicious dinner recipe. I bet you even have most of the ingredients in your pantry, if not, stock up on them so you can make dinner in a flash.

                       Easy Peanut Butter Thai Noodles
                                                                                              Serves 4
                           Ingredients:
                                            2 packages dried ramen noodles, use rice noodles if gluten sensitive
                                            1 pound package baby carrots
                                            1- 12 ounces package extra firm tofu
                                            5 tablespoons San-J Thai Peanut sauce

     Cook the ramen noodles in the microwave according to package directions, omitting the seasoning (save that for another day when you need broth) and drain thoroughly. Set the noodles aside. Cook the carrots in the microwave and dice them into small pieces. While the carrots are cooking, drain the water from the tofu and cut into bite-size pieces. Then place the noodles, carrots, and tofu in a microwave safe dish and gently stir in the San-J Thai Peanut sauce. You can add more sauce if needed for flavor. This sauce is very flavorful so taste first to decide if you need to add more sauce. Then heat this up for a couple of minutes in the microwave.

Notes: you can use other vegetables like broccoli or mushrooms. You can also substitute cooked shrimp or chicken for the tofu. The noodles and the veggies may not combine well together so to serve just place some noodles on a plate and then top with the veggies and tofu.


So the next time you need to get dinner on the table quick, think of this recipe. Go check out San-J's website and tell me which recipe you would like to try.

Live On Forever Is The Newest Album From The Afters Giveaway


   I love hearing the stories of how songs and albums came to be. I recently listened to a new CD and this one has a story that will touch your heart. The music is perfect for when your day just needs a little bit more of Jesus. My family and I listened to the music as we were driving to church. That drive is a 30-minute drive so we were able to listen to almost the whole CD. This music helped me to get my heart ready for church that day. I was working in the nursery that Sunday so the music inspired me to show the little ones of the church the love of Jesus. The song Live on Forever was my favorite as it let me know that I have everlasting life with Jesus and one day I would see heaven. For now, I had little ones to love on and I was ready to show them the love of Jesus. This CD was just what I needed this Sunday morning as I was taking care of the babies.

 Live on Forever, began during a season of tragedy. Josh Havens, guitarist and lead vocalist of The Afters and many of the band members had experienced some form of loss or troubles. The worst of all the troubles was when the band’s longtime soundman, Anthony Martinez, saw his newborn daughter die in infancy. Live on Forever–the band’s fifth with the Fair Trade label-still took shape as a celebration of faithfulness, protection and promise—one that shimmers with strong rhythms, undeniable energy and compelling pop hooks. The album finds Havens in strong, soaring voice as he invites listeners to find shelter and strength in God. “If any theme has emerged, it would be ‘inspiration and motivation,’” Havens says.

  Ask Havens to pick out a song that sums up the spirit of the album, and he chooses “Battles.” “It was the last song we wrote and the fastest we wrote,” he says. “We don’t typically write songs fast; we’ll change lyrics and melodies and craft our songs carefully. But ‘Battles’ poured out, the music and lyrics, in one day. It’s about standing up against fear and knowing God is always with us,” Havens explains. “It’s one of the takeaways we hope people get: ‘Don’t give up to fear.

“We worked on this record for almost two years and over those two years, it was a real season of loss,” Havens recalls. “But in the end, Live on Forever is about moving us to trust God, to stand up against fear. It’s an ‘ante up’ record, an anthem for people’s lives: ‘God you are with me in all this. I’m not alone.’”

When You Look Good You feel Good

                       Using anti-aging beauty products makes me happy.



  When I look in the mirror, for the most part, I like what I see. There are times like when I first wake up or when I am super tired, I don't like what I see in the mirror. When I like what I see in the mirror it makes me happy. Most of the time I do not wear makeup and I still like how I look. I want to be able to smile when I see myself in the mirror or pictures and that is why I take the time to take care of my body and skin. That is why I also invest in beauty products that keep my skin looking nice even as I age. I feel it is important to feel happy with the way I look. Some people think spending money on beauty products is a waste of money and we should just let those wrinkles appear. I say no way as beauty products have come a long way and they work! I would rather make my coffee at home and use that money that I saved to buy anti-aging products that make me happy.


  Why should I have wrinkles and a saggy neck when there are wonderful anti-aging products on the market that and keep my skin looking young. When I look young ,I feel young and I act young. I then continue to do things like running, dancing, playing and so on that keep my body feeling young. Age is just a number, not an indicator of how I should look and feel. So what beauty products do I use to keep my skin young. I use StriVectin. I have been using these awesome products for about a year and I love what I see in the mirror. I am over 50, shh don't tell anyone, and I should have wrinkles and a saggy neck. Well I don't and my friends say to me "you must have good genes." No, I have a healthy diet, I exercise and I spend my money wisely on awesome beauty products. My new favorite StriVectin product/products are for my neck. Right now my neck has a couple of fine lines and is very tight and I want to keep it that way. So I apply TL Advanced Tightening Neck Cream on my neck so I don't have to see that saggy neck that I see in people my age. This cream is so rich and it makes my neck feel so soft and tight. If you have sag in your neck then over time it will lift it back up.



 Want to know my secret for remembering to use my beauty products? Most people keep their creams in the bathroom, not me. I keep my anti-aging products next to my chair in the living room. So in the morning and evening, I just apply them while I am working or watching TV. I see the products and then I go to the kitchen and wash my face, yes I keep my face wash in the cabinet, and then I go back to my comfy chair and apply my cream. I practically live in the kitchen and living rooms, they are right next to each other, so this works for me.



I just love StriVectin's Tightening Neck Serum Roller. This cool product makes it easy to roll on my serum while I am watching TV or working on the computer. The roller gives me a mini massage as it firms and lifts my neck.


So why let a number tell you how to feel. Look in the mirror and feel good about what you see. For me, I love what see it the mirror and that makes me happy. My beauty products are so worth the cost and besides who likes waiting in that long line every day for a cup of coffee. Make that cup of coffee at home, it is real easy to do, and spend that money on younger looking skin.
