Pets Overload has honored WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) and CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE with the SUPAWSTARS SPOTLIGHT AWARD. Why is this award so special to Daisy Mae and I? Probably because this award is given to pet and animal blogs in recognition of a pawsome job from one pet blogger to another.

RULES:

  • You are to choose 5 pet bloggers and link to their blogs and describe why each of them deserves this award.
  • You must encourage the pet bloggers to shout out 5 bloggers themselves.
  • You must leave a comment on their blogs letting them know you’ve given them the spotlight.

I follow several good animal blogs so it’s hard to pick just 5.  Please note I will give this award out many times so if you don’t get the award this time you may get it another time. Since I will be awarding this early this month, I’ll be skipping March with the award.

MY NOMINEES ARE:

  1. Tails Around The Ranch
  • I have nominated Tails Around The Ranch because their blog is about a pawsome pooch and a the adventures of a pet therapy team. Helping pets deserves an award in my book.

2. Hands on Bowie

  • I have nominated Hands on Bowie because this pet blog is about a cat and deals with the journey of happiness and grief.

3. 4cats Blog

  • I nominated 4cats Blog because this animal blog deals with all kinds of pet issues than can come up at anytime plus I like the fact there are two types of posts and shops – English and German.

4. TWOspoiledcats

  • I nominated TWOspoiledcats pet blog because this pet blog deals with helping cats. I like pet blogs who are willing to help. Helping an animal doesn’t always mean you have to give money. This blog also deals with adopting cats and other animals.

5. The Blessing Of Animal Companions

  •  I nominated The Blessing Of Animal Companions because this pet blog deals with living with and caring for animals. This blog deals with something very near and dear to my heart – animals.

Any pet/animal blogs you want to suggest to me will be greatly appreciated. Please use the contact form below to suggest your blog or another blog(s).

Sparks Monday

My encouraging words for the week will be on strength. We all need strength to get through each day and I don’t mean the  weight lifting kind of strength. I get through each day by asking God each Morning just to give me the strength to get through the day and it does help. Below are 2 of many of my favorite Bible verses.

Choosing A Watch And Other Accessories To Go With Your Clothes

DSCN0423I received an e-mail from Jesse Miller and she told me that she was searching the web for information on choosing a watch when she saw a great post on my site. That post link she thought was so great was Cat Christmas Gifts and Giveaway .

She asked me if I would mention her Watch Site in one of my posts since I liked her site. Because she asked if I would share her link in one of my posts, She gave me the inspiration to write this post.

No I’m not the fashion police or a fashion expert. However, I do have 18 years of working at a department store. Working at a department store you certainly get an eye-opening experience working with the public, the people who are your co-workers and your bosses.

As we all know  what clothes we wear are very important. Why? Let’s think about that for a few minutes. Whether you are going to an interview, Out with friends, Going out with your wife or significant other or maybe a Meeting with your Boss, you want to look your best. You certainly wouldn’t wear sweats and a sweatshirt if you want to look your best.

Just as clothes are important so are the accessories and jewelry you wear with your clothes. Wearing a necklace, rings, earrings, bracelet, anklet, toe-ring and of course your watch. What does accessories do for the clothing? Jewelry can not only make clothes stand out but it can make an outfit pop. A good example of how jewelry and accessories can help make our clothes look better is if you notice two people out for the evening one is wearing jewelry and one isn’t. Who’s outfit do you notice first? Is it the person who is wearing jewelry or is it the person who isn’t wearing jewelry? So I stress wearing jewelry and accessories do help the outfit. That also includes outerwear. Below are some pictures of outerwear and accessories to match.

As I’m sure you noticed, I mentioned wearing a watch. But what kind of watch are you going to wear? Are you going to wear a watch with a plastic and colorful band, A watch with a clear band, A watch made into a ring or necklace, A Stainless steel Band or my favorite The stretchy band on a Man’s watch. Below are pictures of different types of watches.

Here is the detailed post on choosing a watch called How to Choose a Watch, According to Science – 8 Factors to Consider which  I checked out and found it very interesting.  I suggest you check her post and site out.

Once again, https://daisymae2017.wordpress.com suggests that you check this watch article out at How to Choose a Watch, According to Science – 8 Factors to Consider

 

The Smart Girl’s Guide to Surviving Her Twenties Book Review

DSCN0420INTRODUCTION:

Around My Birthday and Christmastime, I was fortunate to win a book by Courtney Livingston called The Smart Girl’s Guide to Surviving Her Twenties.  Now I can only imagine what you all must be thinking. Why would a 50-year-old want to read a book that is mostly geared toward the people in their twenties? Interesting question which deserves an interesting answer. I wondered the same thing until I started reading the book. Despite the book’s title this book is for everyone not just twenty year olds.

WHAT I THOUGHT OF THE BOOK:

This book was in my opinion fantastic. It was not only geared for our young people in their twenties but the points and ideas that were made could be used by everyone. The ideas about health, exercising, finances and much, much more. I found the book interesting and helpful to all who read it.

IS THE TILE RIGHT FOR THE BOOK?:

I will answer this question with a yes. Why is it right? I think the title is right even though this book applies to everyone the title The Smart Girl’s Guide to Surviving Her Twenties is right in my opinion because when you start young like in your twenties it help you continue the habits when you get older.

WHO SHOULD READ THIS BOOK?:

That’s an easy question. Anyone who can read.

LINK:

You can find Courtney Livingston at her blog which is on The Smart Girl’s guide to Surviving Her Twenties. This is a great blog so go and check it out.

WHERE CAN THE BOOK BE BOUGHT AT?:

The book The Smart Girl’s Guide to Surviving Her Twenties can be bought at The Smart Girl’s Guide to Surviving Her Twenties(Amazon.com) .

CONCLUSION:

Once you’ve bought and read this book, Courtney Livingston and Crystal Stewart kindly ask you to write a review at amazon.com and give your honest opinion. Also we would appreciate if you link to our blogs Courtney Livingston and WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) and also  at Amazon.com. I think you’ll find this book helpful and interesting. Happy Reading Everyone.
