Shark Tank on CNBC

Shark Tank on CNBC

I love Shark Tank, we actually have it on DVR now and we watch it all the time as a family. We try to guess who is going to make an offer on each business, and if the sharks are going to like the product or not. Sometimes I end up Google-ing the item to buy it for myself, or just to look into it further.  I have great news for all of you fellow Shark Tank lovers! CNBC is now airing back-to-back episodes of Shark Tank on Tuesday nights!  I received this awesome … [Read more...]

Natures Sleep slippers

Nature's Sleep slippers

Nature's Sleep gave me a pair of slippers to try out, and I thought I would share my thoughts on them with you. I chose a light blue pair of closed toe slippers with memory foam. It has been a long time since I've had a pair of slippers, I normally don't buy them because in the past when I have bought a pair at the store I have gotten home and realized that I paid way too much, for way too little. They are always thin, and uncomfortable.  Nature's Sleep slippers use Next Generation … [Read more...]

I am a huge lover of documentary style movies, I really enjoy learning new things, but when it comes to food I am always a little bit reluctant.

From Katic Couric, Laurie David (Oscar winning producer of An Inconvenient Truth), and director Stephanie Soechtig. Fed up will change the way you eat … [Read more...]
