Making #MothersDay Special #ad #LoveHallmarkCA #myhallmark

THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED & WINNER HAS BEEN CONTACTED

Making Mother’s Day a special one can be as simple as a special greetings card.  For years families have relied on Hallmark for those special touches and sentimental words.

Disclosure: I have been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.

Hallmark cards and gifts show Mom just how much you care.  Some gifts you can choose from:

  • colourblock tote from Mark & Hall
  • Marjolein Bastin designs (ex. accessory bag, garden bag tea towel, napkin rings)
  • framed prints
  • pretty scarves
  • water bottles
  • books
  • stuffed animals
  • Crafters & Co. Spa selections (ex. comfort wrap, slippers)
  • an assortment of Mother’s Day cards from Hallmark Signature & Wonderfolds

I purposely left out pricing (MSRP) and even the special pricing because I want you to go into your local Hallmark store and see for yourself how wonderful all of these items are.  You have to see and feel/touch to understand the high-quality.

Is it enough to say “but it’s a Hallmark”?  Yes, it always has been enough … that fact is unchanged … but these items seem to stand out even more (to me).  Perhaps it’s the way this package was put together?  All of the items seemed to go together!  Throughout the entire package the colours matched, the theme matched, and every item seemed fresh!

Now, I’m going to do something different this time around!  I’m going to hold a semi-secret giveaway …

Balancing Your pH with RepHresh™ Pro-B #pHBalancingAct #ad + #Giveaway CAN 18/05

THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED & WINNER HAS BEEN CONTACTED

Taking control of your health isn’t always easy but it’s not as difficult as you might think. There are so many experiences in life that women go through (menstruation, intercourse, pregnancy, menopause – just to name a few) and I believe that the more you educate yourself, equip yourself and effectively make appropriate changes in your life the more likely you are to manage and/or maintain your health.

Disclosure: I have been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.

Having turned 50, I can honestly say that I have experienced my fair share of life’s experiences.  I’ve also experienced many health issues; this is why my health has become extremely important to me.  I am trying to learn more about my health but I also share my knowledge with my daughter, and even her girlfriends, because I want these young ladies to be able to make informed decisions about their health as well.  Yes, here on the blog as well, I want you to learn about your health.  Think of it as a gift.

RepHresh™ Pro-B™ Probiotic helps maintain feminine health and this is why, since I was introduced to it, I have been taking it.  What is it?  RepHresh™ Pro-B™ Probiotic is a gynecologist recommended daily oral probiotic that helps maintain the normal amount of vaginal lactobacilli and prevents odour, irritation and abnormal vaginal discharge.  The capsule is easy to swallow (think of it as a vitamin for your vagina!) and it’s convenient to take because it can be taken orally at any time throughout the day, as opposed to others that need to be taken vaginally.  It’s designed for females 12 years or older.  Best of all, it’s available over the counter.

This feminine supplement is clinically shown to balance yeast and bacteria.  RepHresh™ Pro-B™ was specially formulated by doctors at the Canadian Research and Development Centre for Probiotics associated with one of Canada’s foremost Universities.   The patented probiotic strains in RepHresh™ Pro-B™, L. rhamnosus GR-1™ and L. reuteri RC-14™, help to maintain the flora important to overall vaginal health, balancing yeast and bacteria to maintain feminine health.

Actually, the vaginal yeast counts of healthy women fluctuate significantly, and do so often without you even knowing.  RepHresh™ Pro-B™ contains strains specific to vaginal health.  It is clinically shown to balance yeast and bacteria unlike other probiotic supplements which target digestive health.  The fluctuations in the vaginal pH level can occur for many reasons: hormones, menstruation, intercourse, even going on a flight!  By maintaining the vaginal pH at a healthy, normal level, you can reduce the plethora of vaginal issues that can occur.

FUN EXPERIMENT:

I had the opportunity to do my own little experiment at home.  I was provided with a set of pH strips and two fresh juices so that I could (1) see for myself, and (2) share with you what a healthy vaginal pH range is.

A) I took a strip from the test kit and dipped it into the first juice and let it sit for 30 seconds.  I then took it out and compared it against the colour chart on the pH test kit to determine the pH level.  A healthy vaginal pH level is between 3.5 and 4.5

B) I repeated step A with the second juice.  Do you see a difference?

One of the juices has a pH level that can be comparable with a healthy vaginal pH, while the other juice has one that is comparable to an unhealthy vaginal pH level.

FYI:

~ a vaginal pH greater than 4.5 means there’s a perfect environment for bacteria growth

~ menstrual blood has a pH of 7.4

~ semen (intercourse) has a pH of 7.1 to 8

~ water (feminine washes/cleansers)  … water has a pH of 7 … fragrances/perfumes can irritate the vagina

~ both pregnancy and menopause cause hormones to fluctuate; usually to an elevated pH

I caution you to always discuss any vaginal symptoms and concerns with your doctor.  If you’re concerned about forgetting what you want to discuss with your doctor you may want to write it down, along with any questions, on a piece of paper.  You’ll discover that many gynecologists recommend RepHresh™ products!

Personally, I went through some difficult moments with my health that included my vaginal health.  I went through a lifetime of menstrual concerns (including bacterial infections). Recently, since being forced into menopause, my hormones have gone completely whacked!  This is the moment when women (like me) are experiencing an elevated pH.  I’m now feeling much better but I can honestly say that in retrospect, I probably could have had easier moments throughout my life.  Had I not felt embarrassed to discuss certain topics with my doctor I would have discovered solutions; instead I lived with discomfort, pain, and even embarrassment.  It’s wonderful to note that over the years women’s health has taken center stage and women are more comfortable and confident discussing what should be ‘normal topics’.  Shouldn’t our health be ‘normal’?  It should and it is!  Let’s all please teach our daughters, sisters, friends, and any other women in our lives, this valuable information.

Ladies, I encourage you to be open about your health with your doctors, with yourselves, and with your daughters.  There’s no need to feel shy or embarrassed about anything to do with your health.  By being open and honest we can take control of our health.
