Delicious Slim Fast 3-2-1 Plan

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Slim-Fast for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.



Many people are worried about their weight, and lots of us try different weight loss plans with varying degrees of success.  Some popular diets in the past have been found to be unhealthy and nearly everyone who tries them end up putting all the weight back on, plus some extra weight on top of that.  Doctors will usually tell you that both a diet and exercise are the healthy things that someone should do in order to lose weight and keep it off. 

I recently tried Slim-Fast, which were canned chocolate flavored drinks that are part of the 3-2-1 Slim Fast plan.  The plan includes 3 nourishing snacks, 2 Slim Fast shakes or bars, and 1 balanced meal per day.  Slim Fast offers a variety of snack bars, which look delicious and I’d like to try.  They also offer six different meal bars along with seven different flavors of shakes.  The shakes come in both bottles and cans of powdered mix if you’d rather make your own. I prefer the ready to drink in bottles. I tried their shakes and they are so good!

Check out their Facebook page or website to get more information about how Slim-Fast can become part of a healthy diet. They also have a great giveaway going on at this time.

You can buy Slim-Fast at Walmart, Target, Safeway, Kroger and probably at your local drug store or grocery store. Here in Hawaii, it is also available at Long's Drug (CVS owned drug store). If you would like to purchase it online, it's available at Amazon.Com and the Slim-Fast 3-2-1 store on Facebook.

My Passion For Gift Cards

I love gift cards, I just received a gift card for a fancy restaurant and I can’t wait to use it. I also love gift cards where I can make purchases at stores. They are very easy to handle and I find shopping to be fun with it. No need for cash or to use your credit cards. For some reason, I don't feel much guilt when I am using gift cards  because I feel that they are free money especially if the gift card came as a gift. If I purchase them myself, sometimes, I can get them cheaper too than their regular value and earn rewards.
Here are the reasons why I love gift cards:
1.       They are very easy to purchase. You can purchase them online or at the stores or restaurants.
2.        They make great gifts. I usually try to ask friends and family what stores do they usually shop and most likely that store has gift cards. This holidays we will be sending gift cards.
3.       As I mentioned, I love to receive them too because I can purchase what I want or use it at my own convenience.
4.       You can take them anywhere. They are small, it can easily fit in your wallet.
5.       It allows you more freedom on when you would want to shop. Most of the gift cards don’t have expiration dates or they may take at least a year before they expire.

There are many ways to give gift cards. You can give it in person, just put it in an envelope, you can ship it with just one stamp if you are shipping it inter-state. I think even if you ship it internationally, the shipping will still be fairly low. You can also give it as an additional gift. Gift cards don’t fail to brighten someone especially when they receive it by surprise or if you get a gift card for their favorite store.

How about you? Do you purchase gift cards? If not, you should try. They’re very convenient, and most of the time, you don’t have to think hard which gift you would buy because the person who will receive it will have more choices of what s/he wants to buy with it.

USCG Captain’s License

Some of the most popular shows on television for the past few years have been about fishing boats in harsh environments, like Alaska and the Gulf of Mexico.  One thing all these boats have in common is they have a captain, the person in charge of the ship.  Being a captain of a ship goes back centuries, and many of the customs continue today.  For instance, did you know that ship captains can perform marriages?  But how do you become the captain of a ship? 

Well, there are requirements set forth by the government, and they include being licensed.  You can obtain either a captain’s license or a master captain’s license and then be able to work in water vessel occupations, which are projected to increase by 15% in the next ten years.  You can obtain your USCG Captains License online at  They provide online courses, testing, and student services to anyone who has an interest in becoming a boat captain.  Boat captains can work in the transportation industry, aboard cruise ships, or in the area of commercial shipping and ferries.  So if you’re looking to change careers and start a new career, you might consider checking out their website.

Flowers for All Occasions

I just found this florists online free delivery website, it’s based in the United Kingdom, but you can choose  “International” at their left side bar category and it will give you the options available for buyers from the US. It is also available in some other countries.  Their flowers are gorgeous though. They look so fresh and are very colorful from the photos. I love how they combine one color to another to make them even more beautiful.
What I love most about their website is that you can pick flowers by occasion, even gifts for baby and mom. With this category, the flowers are not real flowers but are actually presents that look like real flowers. It is so creative and I want to recreate it. I think it would be a great gift for a baby shower.
I love flowers and I wish we had a garden here, but we live in a condominium type apartment.  I was just looking at the article “Additives to Cut Flowers”, and I thought it was interesting to know how they can make these flowers remain fresh longer.

Holiday Deals on Android Powered EVO 4G: 3 days only!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sprint for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Do you own a smart phone? Unfortunately, I still don’t have one but I’m thinking of getting one soon. Sometimes, it feels like I’m left behind with technology because I’m not using a smart phone.

Have you ever used an Android smart phone? My husband has an older model and he still likes it. We used it a lot during our vacation as a GPS. This smart phone can also access the internet, and can use a lot of phone applications. It also is built very well and with quality, my husband uses his for over two years already. Honestly, this is the only smart phone I ever used so I am unable to compare much.

For just three days, Sprint is offering more great holiday deals. At this time, they have a three day offer of Android™ powered EVO 4G devices. It includes a waived activation fee and free shipping. You may want to check this offer if you are already a Sprint user or if you are thinking of switching to a different phone provider and want to get a new fancy phone.

The three day offer started December 12thand will end on December 14thof this year. Please check out this link for more information -- Android™ powered EVO 4G devices.

Tea Collection: Little Girl Dresses

Have you heard of Tea Collection? They once gave my daughter RC a dress, it was so cute. I would say that they have adorable and colorful little girl dresses. The quality is great too, it did not fade or shrink. Unfortunately, the dress is getting too small for her.  They also have items for women. However, I think their prices for kids clothing are more reasonable. They have a line of luxury clothing for kids. They do offer free shipping every once in awhile. You can find them in Facebook and if you would like to know more about this brand. If you are interested, you can also “like” the page so you can be the first to know about the current sale and discounts that they offer. I’m one of their stalkers in Facebook.

The regular prices are a little high for me, I would rather buy the ones that are on sale. I normally don’t pay regular prices anyway even with other items. How about you? You can check their site at TeaCollection.Com and please feel free to share your thoughts.

America Life Quotes

One of the best ways to protect our family is to get family insurance or life insurance. There are a lot of options out there. I personally believe that having a Term Life Insurance is a good option to insure your family. We normally don’t want to think that something wrong is going to happen. But, just like some people would have a  prenuptial agreement before their wedding while they are in the state of so much love, it is still good to protect yourself or your children just in case.

Insurance quotes can be find at I like that you can compare rates using their form. By comparing you will know the best rates life insurance and which is the cheap life insurance that you can get. I would admit that we have to do this because we don’t have any at this time but me and my husband are talking about it. We have a very young child and there is so much to think about her future like her education. Do you have life insurance?

This post is brought to you by Their website also offers quotes on cars, health, pets and  jewelry insurances.

Outdoor Playsets

Are you ready for Christmas? It’s probably the most expensive time of the year.  I still have to buy gifts for my daughter RC. If we have an outdoor area, would like to buy her one of those Garden Trampolines, as much as she likes to jump.  Now she is using our couches are her trampolines. It’s great that there is a park very near our apartment too. Swings are not available though only slides and climbing frames  

How about you? What do you usually give your children for Christmas? I will have to buy some educational toys for her, maybe some dress up costumes like being a doctor. She is very scared whenever we go to the doctor so I think it would be good if we have some practice at home, maybe that will help. I’ll also probably get some pool gadgets because she is definitely the outdoor kind of girl. She is always excited to go out.
