Social Insiders product review- RENUZIT Sensitive Scents Air Fresheners

As a product reviewer for Social Insiders, I was given the amazing opportunity to try out and review a new line of air freshener products from Renuzit! In exchange for my personal opinion, I was given 3 full sized products to try out. I was also given coupons to share with my readers. I was provided with an adjustable cone with the scent of Pure Water Blossom and Cucumber, a universal scented oil in the scent of Pure Ocean Breeze, and trigger spray in the scent of Pure White Pear and Lavender.

As Renuzit Sensitive Scents states, these are "a truly unique sensory experience. Each scent has been specially formulated and lab-tested to ensure effective, long-lasting, and pleasing scents without overpowering sensitive noses." I am very sensitive to air fresheners. Most of them, that are sold in stores, make my nose itch or make me sneeze. After using each one of these, I have had absolutely NO problems with allergic-reactions or sensitivities to these products. I do, honestly, believe this statement, as it has proven accurate for me and my family.

Each of these items has a scrumptious and delightful scent that fills the air with goodness! The adjustable cone was used in my bathroom. I have used many different brands of adjustable cones in the past, and although they may release a scent, it usually doesn't last. With the Renuzit Sensitive Scent adjustable cone, the scent lasted for approximately two weeks. Although I still have plenty of the fragrance left in my adjustable cone, I no longer smell it in my bathroom. It may be that I have become used to the smell, or it may have evaporated out.

The universal scented oil is a plug-in. I used this one in my kitchen. The Pure Ocean Breeze scent was fairly faint. It was a very good scent and could be smelled, but it was not overpowering at all, unlike most brands of plug-ins. Again, it only lasted about 2 weeks. It is still plugged into my outlet in my kitchen, but I no longer smell it.

The trigger spray is in a bottle. The Pure White Pear and Lavender is the most amazing combination of scents! This one was my favorite! I love that the scent is so crisp yet not to strong. It leaves a pleasing aroma! For example, we have had an issue with 2 red foxes getting under our porch of our house. These foxes release a nasty scent that smells similar to skunk spray. Each time they get under our porch and release their scent, it comes through our heating system. Oh, it's the most horrible smell EVER! When that scent would come through our vents, I would spray the Renuzit Sensitive Scents trigger spray into the air, on our drapes and on our carpet. It didn't just mask the smell like most would, but it REMOVED the smell from the air! (Luckily, those foxes have found a new home! LOL) I love that I can spray this spray on anything- carpet, drapes, furniture (not all furniture though), etc. It enlightens any room! My whole family LOVES this one! The spray fills a room full of delightful freshness!

All in all, I LOVED these products! (Although I am more fond of the trigger spray!) If you would like to learn more about these products, click here to go to the Renuzit site.

Shred Your Ex @ Hooter's & Get Free Food on Valentine's Day!

A friend of mine works at the Hooter's in Trussville, Alabama. She posted this flyer on Facebook. She said that this came from Corporate and that all locations should be doing it. I thought it was hilarious! Plus, what better way to get rid of those pictures you don't want anymore? Haha!

This is NOT a sponsored post! I simply have a friend who is a Hooter's employee, and I wanted to share this hilarious event with everyone! Have fun on Valentine's Day!

Milwaukee's Annual Kite Festival 2015

Every year, right by Lake Michigan's lake side, Milwaukee hosts an awesome (FREE!!!) Annual Kite Festival at Veteran's Park! Thousands of people come out to enjoy the sights of hundreds of beautiful kites of all sizes as they fly through the skies. There are a lot of vendors present too, so you can grab a yummy bite to eat while watching the beautiful skies above.

One of the cool things about Veteran's Park is that there is a little store on site, called Gifts of Wings, that is both a snack stand and also a kite store, so while attending this event, visitors can check out the store and buy their own kites to fly outside. This year was the 2nd year that we have attended this festival, but the last time we attended was 6 years ago (when our son was a BABY!). This time BOTH of our kids got to enjoy the festival and each got to pick out a cool new kite!
After picking out their new kites, we found a clear spot outside, then their Daddy assembled the kites for them.
    (Excuse my finger in the left corner. LOL It was extremely bright outside, and I could not see that well through the view finder so I did not realize that my finger was in the way) 
Our kids had so much fun flying their new kites, and Daddy even had a blast flying the kites when they weren't. I sat with my husband's service dog so that he could enjoy his time with our kids. (My husband is a wounded combat war Veteran who has had quite a troublesome past year due to his injuries, so right now he is making up for lost times with our kids. They are loving it, and so is he!)

For our family, this is such a wonderful event. It's a typically peaceful event, where everyone is there to just watch the kites fly high and enjoy the beauty of nature. We can't wait until next year!

Hales Corners Veterinary Clinic FREE EVENT for Kids and Dogs

Upon looking for FREE events to take my kids to, I came across a vet clinic in Milwaukee county that was hosting a free fun event for kids and dogs! I had never heard of the clinic, but I thought it sounded like a great event to attend. They offered cotton candy, popcorn and fun things for kids to do, plus they were giving FREE nail trims and orthopaedic exams to dogs. Why not save some money on our dog's care, right? So we went! I'm so glad we did!

Hales Corners Veterinary Clinic is located in Hales Corners, Wisconsin, which was approximately 35 minutes for us to drive to from our home in Racine. This clinic was very well-organized and very clean. They had separate rooms for cats and dogs, which I thought was great. Their staff was very friendly and all smiles. We were given a personal tour of the facility. They had a "teddy bear surgery room" set up for kids to see how surgery is basically done (in a non-threatening way).
 My kids enjoyed seeing this and were thankful that it was just a teddy bear. LOL

The poor teddy bear had some serious visceral issues (sorry, "nurse talk". I'm a nurse also. Visceral means its "guts."). It's poor insides were exposed. Luckily, it was sedated. LOL

Our dog, a Pitbull named Isabella, enjoyed her "pedicure" and her "massage" that she received for free! Her nails are all pretty now, and her orthopaedic exam gave her a clean bill of health! The veterinarian was extremely nice and caring. She loved our dog too!

 I was extremely impressed with this facility and the staff members. I honestly believe that we may end up transferring Isabella's care to Hales Corners Veterinary Clinic. It may be a 35 minutes drive, but Isabella loved being there, and I felt like she was in good hands. With Isabella being my husband's service dog, she needs the best of care. I honestly feel she would receive it at this clinic.

After we were done, we were given lots of "swag" to take home! :)
