Ants Be Gone...Maybe? And a Giveaway!


As a fabulous blogger, I am afforded with many opportunities to test and write reviews for products. And I love that aspect of blogging. I think the people need to know the truth! So here I am to deliver to you my truth.

Products of the day

Combat Source Kill MAX
 
Now when I originally got sequestered (is that the right word?) to do this review I saw ants. Since receiving the kit in the mail...things changed. I guess all the rain we were getting washed the ants away! I even planted an open, licked lollipop to see if they would swarm! They didn't swarm!

So that left me to ask around if somebody else had issues with ants. Apparently every body's ants got washed away! I did use the gel in hopes that these earwigs that always find a way into my house would eat it, take back home, and die.

Has it worked? Not for the earwigs. They still find their way in. So here is what I can tell you...

As far as the gel goes, I was really expecting more to be in that little tube. I put in in front of my door where I have occasionally seen ants (before the monsoon swept them away) and here is the area it covered. But maybe I squeezed too much out...
yep, that's it.

I was, however, quite pleased that the gel isn't BLACK! I've bought roach gel before and that black icky stuff is less that visually pleasing. A few days later I still see the gel there. I hope some insects have a feast. And die from gluttony. That's harsh and I know they all provide balance to our ecosystem...but until you visit my house and really understand the magnitude of creatures I have to deal with, don't judge me!

And I mean that with all the sweetness inside my heart!

Now...as for the ant baits, I was happy to see those. They replaced these baits that have been in my house since I moved in 5 years ago!
 

I understand that the scent is supposed to lure the ants, make them eat, and take it back to the colony and KILL THE QUEEN. I'm a little dramatic today, forgive me! I did not like the smell! I apparently have an ant nose because I had to put the box down for a minute. But I do have an overly sensitive nose and usually smell things others don't. I put them in the corners and crevices anyway. So far no traffic.

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks!

Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash!

I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL

I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one.



Here are what this product claims to be…

Holiday Party Etiquette

With the holidays coming up on us so fast, it’s only right that we talk party etiquette. I can only speak about Black party etiquette, so that’s what I will discuss here. I'm sure some of these rule can be applied across different cultures/ethnicities.




If you are invited to a party, gathering, dinner, or the like, there are some things that you just don’t do. If we invited you, we must like you at least a little bit. That can end quickly. Here are some general rules of Black house gatherings that expand beyond the holidays. You’re welcome.

Don’t assume all Black events start late. Yes…a lot of them do, but you don’t want to be the late one. If I tell you it starts at 3, I’ve most likely accounted for the lateness of my family members. We move on without them. Don’t be tardy for the party. Don’t show up empty handed. Even if you are told not to worry about bringing anything, bring something. Even if it’s a bottle of sparkling cider. There will be massive side eye if you show up empty…

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh.

She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes...



After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard!



She really enjoys Dial Watery Melon scen…
