Leokis Cat Litter Mat - So Stylish



Thanks to Leokis on Amazon for donating a litter mat for my foster kitties. I actually use it under the tent in the corner of their feeding station. This works out just in case they spill food or water. Love it so much! It looks really nice but comes rolled up so there will be an initial line between it. Eventually it will flatten out with use.

I'm also sure this would make a great litter mat from in front of a cat litter box for people who use conventional litter boxes. I do use it for the foster kitties but I find that this mat works out better for food/water mess with little ones.

Struggling with underarm odor as a female & how to help fix it



Yup, this is a tough topic to talk about for many females. I will openly say I am one of the many females who struggle with bad underarm odor. You're probably thinking that its a problem that everybody has which you are right to a degree. I wish people knew how bad the odor and sweat gets for me but they just laugh when I tell them my underarms always smell bad.

Go to the doctor? I already told the doctor about it and I felt like he thought he was talking to some 13 year old going through puberty. I tried asking for a prescription deodorant but I was brushed off once again. Hey, I have another appointment coming up tomorrow so we will see what my new Doctor tells me.

Image result for deodorant

I have tried every single deodorant under the sun. Nothing has ever worked for more than 10 minutes out of the shower for me. Clinical strength deodorants are a joke and never work for more than 30 minutes out of the shower. Maybe I'm the odd one out here but there HAS to be others who suffer like me. I even tried a deodorant cleanse and my underarms just smelled completely horrendous without anything but lotion. So yeah the whole going natural does NOT work for people like me.

Every so often I come across a new product that claims it can kill under arm odor and so my eyes light up like a Christmas tree in hopes that it might work. Enter these deodorant underarm wipes from a company called,  "Game Face Grooming." It looked a bit gruff and kind of marketed towards men but I didn't care because I was desperate to try something new. Maybe just maybe something like this would work for my big problem.



The wipes came in the mail for me to try out and I did after a long day I decided to wipe my stinky underarms before bed. The smell is wonderful which I thought they would smell like men's cologne but didn't. They kind of have a shea butter smell to them. The wipes were thick, strong and nicely sized. My underarms had a nice neutral shea butter scent to them. I could see the dirt right on the wipe. I took a pic of it but it's hard to see since it was night time. (Try to see at the top of the palm of my hand for the dirt spots. Just squint really hard. That's my foster kitten by the way, hi!)


I was surprised to smell that I still smelled fresh even right before I went to sleep that night which was like 3 hours after I did that wipe. I smelled decent in the morning...just a little bit of the usual morning sweat. Well, the wipes work and I'll be using them at night before bed to keep the extra sweat/stank away.


Here's my routine now on the daily:

1. I must shower right in the morning to scrub up paying extra close attention to my underarms with a special Cetaphil body wash. It's a little expensive but worth it. I got mine at Rite Aid.

2. Use a high quality lotion that doesn't have too much scent on it. I like to round robin between Live Clean baby lotion and Shea Moisture for sensitive skin. I also have used aloe based hand repair creams. L'oreal Paris Hydra Genius has also made my rotation. Basically anything that is HIGH quality and not some frou frou body lotion from Bath and Body works filled with obnoxiously delicious scents.

3. Pure baking soda. Yup, I said it. It's the devil because it makes me itch like crazy from time to time and burns a bit. It's the ONLY thing that works for me sadly. You can use any brand honestly and a box is super cheap at Walmart. I beg of you though, use a blush makeup brush to lightly dust it on after you put on your lotion. I used to take my finger tips and rub it on thickly. DON'T DO THAT! I ended up with scaly, dark and leathery looking underarms after about 2 weeks of doing this straight. The light dusting with a makeup brush does the trick and only itches me lightly here and there. I'd rather be itchy and stank free though. My preference. You could also follow up with an anti-itch lotion like lotrimin.

4. And lastly which is now apart of my ritual every 2-3 days is to wipe my underarms thoroughly at night with one of these Game Face Grooming Deodorant wipes. It lets my underarms rest up from all the other stuff and keeps me fresh. It's $7.99 for a pack of 25 so you can probably wipe twice a day if you decide to just go deodorant free for the rest of your life but that would be kind of expensive to take on. Eh, if you compare it to the cost of "clinical deodorants" it's actually about the same.


So I hope this has helped anyone who's dealing with underarm odor. Even if you are a guy or a female. Just a shout out to anyone who is depressed about it...don't be. You can get over it by controlling it daily. Get into a routine that works for you. I did it and I feel better about myself. I feel better about wearing a short sleeve shirt or dress to family events. No one wants to be stinky.

My new Cat Eye Prescription Glasses from GlassesShop.com


How cute are these eyeglasses? I got the amazing opportunity to try out these prescription eyeglasses from GlassesShop.com. They are called the Hoboken Cat Eye - Red. I'll go more into depth on these glasses in a minute. I just wanted to say that you don't have to be afraid to order prescription glasses online with the fear of them not coming in exactly how it's supposed to be. I have a really strong prescription so I was a little worried but that all changed after I tried them on. My prescription is OD -8.50 OS -9.00 so I'm pretty blind without my glasses. I also was scared it was going to be super thick but it seems like they are just fine aesthetically. You know what? These glasses are also a whole lot cheaper to order as well. You will save so much money doing it this way. I wish I would have known about this before I shelled out about $250 at Sears Optical for my current older eyeglasses.


Anyway, the Hoboken Cat Eye - Red glasses are so comfortable to wear. My other eyeglasses are constantly sliding off my face but these stay right on my face. The frames are also quite sturdy so I don't have to worry about them breaking easily. I have gotten so many compliments on them already. These are perfect for anyone wanting that cute retro vintage look to their outfits. I have so many vintage looking dresses but the eyeglasses never match up quite right and these do.

They actually do come in a different style other than the red as shown . It's subtle but cute as well. They have plenty of Cat Eye glasses online to choose from.





I honestly just adore these cheap prescription glasses. They have a good fit for my face and the color goes well with anything. The glasses came with a case and a cleaning cloth to keep them looking their best.

Another great aspect of this site is that they do offer prescription sunglasses as well. I think I look terrible in sunglasses so I'll pass on that one but sunglasses look really great on many people.


Anyway, if you liked the glasses I am wearing you can buy them here with or without prescription : https://www.glassesshop.com/eyeglasses/fp1092

Be sure to also check out their best sellers here: http://www.glassesshop.com/bestsellers?sort=price_asc

Here's a special discount code you can use to purchase your own pair of eyeglasses GSHOT50  which is 50% off for all eyeglasses online and sunglasses with free lenses only throughout the website, with the exception of sales frames.


Any questions/comments? Feel free to let me know, thanks!

Of Cats & Men by Sam Kalda



So this is a book that goes over the profiles of history's great cat-loving artists, writers, thinkers and statesmen. It's basically mini biographies of all these great men and their accomplishments. But what is more that they all include a friendly feline which served as a sort of muse to each of them. All of the stories are well written and interesting. The artwork is also uniquely worked on which I can have an appreciation for. The material of the book is hardy and lovely to the touch in itself. It has the feel of an older book with a modern style of writing. I enjoyed reading this book and I know other cat lovers will rejoice over it.

You can BUY this book here on Amazon : https://www.amazon.com/Cats-Men-Profiles-Cat-Loving-Statesmen/dp/0399578447
