Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is hitting theaters next month!  I am so excited to see one of our favorite children’s books come to life. 

Disney’s “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” follows the exploits of 11-year-old Alexander (Ed Oxenbould) as he experiences the most terrible and horrible day of his young life—a day that begins with gum stuck in his hair, followed by one calamity after another. But when Alexander tells his upbeat family about the misadventures of his disastrous day, he finds little sympathy and begins to wonder if bad things only happen to him. He soon learns that he’s not alone when his mom (Jennifer Garner), dad (Steve Carell), brother (Dylan Minnette) and sister (Kerris Dorsey) all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Anyone who says there is no such thing as a bad day just hasn’t had one. “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day,” directed by Independent Spirit Award-winner Miguel Arteta (“The Good Girl,” “Cedar Rapids,” “Youth in Revolt”) from a screenplay by Rob Lieber, is a 21 Laps Entertainment/Jim Henson Company production. The film hits theaters nationwide Oct. 10, 2014.


In celebration of the film release, I wanted to tell you about the sweepstakes they are conducting with a chance to win a family vacation!

To enter all you need to do is share your Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad throwback family photo using #VeryBadDaySweeps on Twitter or Instagram for a chance to win an Adventures by Disney trip for four to Disney Aulani, resort & spa!

Taking music on the go is so easy these days with smart phones, MP3 players and tablets – but often times, those tiny built in speakers are only good if you are alone.  Want a group of people to hear something, or want to hear it over road noise in the car or a group of people talking and you are likely out of luck.  Check out the portable bluetooth speaker from LuguLake that Krista from Savory Savings recently reviewed.  This compact bluetooth speakers is easy to use and provides quality sound for a great price (check out the deals for them on Amazon – they would make excellent holiday gifts!)

As a business owner, your goal is to not only draw customers to your site, but to create sales conversions as often as possible. With Internet marketing reaching its highest level ever, having an active ecommerce site is a great method to boost your business sales. Whether you have a store front with an additional website, or work solely as an online proprietor, utilizing all information available to you to increase sales is imperative.

TrackIf is the perfect solution for large and small ecommerce sites of all types. This innovative ecommerce app works not only to benefit the website owner and seller, but as a means of help to a buyer as well. Not only will you as a business owner be able to increase your sales conversions, your customers will be naturally drawn back to your site to meet their needs in the future thus creating a long term repeat customer.

What Is TrackIf?

This great back end tool is a method to track your customers habits on your site. A simple code added to your site allows you to see what potential customers are interested in, as well as the price points they find appropriate. TrackIf gives you not only information about your customers habits, it gives them the opportunity to easily let you know what they would like to see happen. In the process, it allows your customer to take control of their shopping experience and give you feedback in a simple and non intrusive to them way.


Why Choose TrackIf For My Site?

  • Additional Buttons To Remind or Notify of Updates, Sales & Price Changes. These are easily placed next to the “buy now” button on all products. This gives your potential customers the ability to specify the price point they would be willing to pay, so if the product goes on sale at that price they would receive an email notice encouraging them to come back and make the purchase.
  • Out Of Stock Notices. Addition of a “notify me” button to all pages so if an item is out of stock, you won’t lose future sales. As soon as it is back in stock your customer will be alerted and return to make their purchase. This also gives you an insight on how many additional products to have on hand to supply your customer base in the future.
  • Integrated Social Commerce Capture. This utilizes your existing social media following to increase sales without paying the high fees social media often charges to promote your business. When a customer shares a product from your website to social media, they will be given the opportunity to receive notices regarding that product in the future. Sale prices, special events and promos will be sent to them as requested. No more paying extra on your social media pages to promote your sales to the existing followers! TrackIf does it for you.
  • Wishlist Price Change Updates & Promotions. When someone adds an item to their wishlist, they are now opted into an email update when that price changes or a sale includes the item. Additionally, you can look at the items most often added to wishlists and then create a special promotional event to increase sales on that one item.
  • Search Tracking. This unique addition to the TrackIf Ecommerce app is great for those sites wanting to know what their customers are looking for. A “Save This Search” button added to the site allows your visitors to be alerted of new or return items matching their search.

What Is My Investment?

There is no up front cost! You are only charged by TrackIf if you succeed in creating sales leads through the links and alerts generated as a part of the TrackIf system, email alerts and wishlists.

Celebrating a birthday during these fall months can be just rewarding. Creating a Fall wish list from Get my Wish will allow you to personalized your own gift list to share with family and friends.

When I heard the words pre-cancer I walked home in a daze.  I didn’t even take the bus home that day.  At 18 years old  I didn’t think it could happen to me.  I was wrong.  Granted it was ‘pre’ and not full blown cancer, but still, you don’t think it can happen to you or someone you love, until it does happen.  

Unfortunately, I had a doctor that wasn’t skilled at the sewing up part after taking the offending cells out and I have a scar on my back to remind me, but at least it was caught early and taken care of, almost, properly.  

As a teen I had laid out in the sun trying to get a tan, so I could get the pretty skin my siblings have, olive skin. But fair skin is not meant to be brown, olive or tanned.  

On the way home that day from the doctor’s office; I was thinking of all the times I had not been careful about the sun’s rays and literally ‘baked’ my skin at times.  Back then, UV Skinz sun protective clothing wasn’t around, but I am sure glad they are now!

uvskinz-letter-from-president.jpg for KNK

UK skinz was created and began after the creator and CEO, Rhonda Sparks, lost her 32 year old husband, Darren, to melanoma.  Because of this terrible loss, Rhonda is passionate in her daily efforts to raise awareness about the life-saving benefits of protecting oneself and our loved ones from the harmful exposures of UV rays.  

Rhonda has created a UPF 50+ certified sun protective line for the entire family!  From sizes 3 months to 4XL, UV Skinz provides a wide range of sizes in their UV protective clothing line.  UPF clothing for men, women and children alike are available so that you and your loved ones can practice sun safety to LIVE and HAVE FUN outdoors!  

UV Skinz review package pic for KNK

Before I opened the packages containing the Long Sleeve Aloha Sun Shirt and the Board Shorts I received to review; I fully expected some sort of thick material to both protect me from the sun’s rays but also able to be worn while swimming or participating in water related activities.  I was so wrong about the thick material! 

UV Skinz Long Sleeve Aloha Sun and Swim Shirt pic for KNK

The Women’s Long Sleeve, Aloha Sun & Swim Shirt  is breathable, quick drying and lightweight.   That thick fabric I was imagining? Yeah, not even close.  

This UV swim shirt, in the classic Hawaiian print fabric, is so soft and nice against my skin; I wouldn’t need to wear a suit beneath it.  It will pair well with any of UV Skinz solid colored swim wear pieces, such as, skirts, board shorts, capris, etc.  It is certified UPF 50+ and it’s also chlorine and saltwater resistant.  I absolutely love this swim shirt! It’s cute, fun, sun wear that will protect my skin from the UV rays.

UV Skinz Board Shorts pic for KNK review 

These semi-fitted mid-rise board shorts with back elastic and front waistband tab, with drawstring,  are perfect on or off the beach. My board shorts have the Velcro closure at the front with the added stretch fly insert for added comfort.   Other board shorts may have a snap as well.  They are figure flattering with their front pockets and there’s a hidden key pocket at the waist.   There is also a back pocket with a flap.  

The board shorts are a super cute design, with soft Microfibre fabric, quick drying and UPF 50+. They are very comfortable, look cute; and I love them! Seriously, who knew you could look so cute and still be protecting your skin from harmful UV rays?

UV Skinz UV Detector Keychain pic for KNK

Also included in my review package is this handy dandy UV detector key chain.  As you can see from the above picture when I was outside the UV detector was showing that there was a high amount of harmful UV rays at that time.  I think this is terrific to have because I tend to need physical reminders for things and this would remind me when I need to cover up with UV Skinz or get in the shade.

UV Skinz pic for KNK review

UV Skinz has eco-friendly,  sun protective clothing for the whole family.   It’s fun, fashionable and affordable.  As I was looking through the catalog I made a  list of what items to purchase both for myself and my loved ones.  I will be using UV Skinz, now and in the years to come as well.  Check out UV Skinz and have a sun safe day! :)
