Back To Campus with At Home – Make Your Space Your Own! #AtHomeStores


It’s back to school time, and a lot of kids are headed away from home for the very first time as they head back to campus. That means a lot more money for just books and clothes and lunch, it’s time to furnish their own space….Their way!

It’s already nerve wracking enough and a scary time for our kids, so why not let them pick out their very own style and décor for their space as they head away from home. At Home store wants to help them make that transition just a little more comfortable allowing our kids to make their small dorm spaces their own.

You may think of the major things like bedding and storage for their clothing, but don’t forget the small little touches along the way.

At Home has a great selection of the major items for a fraction of the cost elsewhere, but they also have a huge collection of pieces that will make their space their own. Think about once they have their bedding about finding things like pillows, accents and different pillow cases and things to spruce it up a little to make it their own style. You can pick up a great bedding set from an assortment of colors, and move outward from there.

One thing I love is inspirational quotes. My daughters are no different. So of course they may find posters they like, be sure to pick up a few pieces of wall décor that will get them through those tough days, where they can look up and remember what they need to do, and what they can do!

Don’t forget photos from home. A place to put pictures of their friends, families and beloved pets that they’ll of course miss more than us!

When you think about storage, don’t just think about dressers and shelves, At Home has a huge collection of different styles of baskets where you can house not only clothing, but their electronics, towels, books, and so much more. A little more unconventional than a usual shelf or dresser.

Speaking of shelving, why go with typical wall shelves? We fell in love with this great piece, perfect to use for little things such as picture frames, small baskets with hair accessories, speakers, and so much more. They come in different colors as well, perfect to add that little touch of you!

Pillows are also a great accessory, can be used as seating for the floor, or something to just cuddle up with when they’re feeling a little more homesick than usual. Soft, Fluffy and fun!

Don’t forget some of the little odds and ends either, like shower curtains, and small appliances for cooking! At Home has everything you need for a new dorm room, or even your own house, you know, once they leave, you can spice up your décor a little too without a huge bill hanging over your head!

Why this is the best time to quit smoking….


Our knowledge of smoking as a vice has increased dramatically in last several decades. Nowadays we can with certainty tell that smoke is bad for your health and cigarettes and tobacco cause several severe diseases.

With the progress of our knowledge of nicotine, our knowledge of how to quit smoking also increased. People all over the world have fought for decades against this vice and we finally have a list of solutions that can help.

And not only that.

We also have good substitutions to cigarettes such as electronic cigarettes and e-juice. They are much better for our health and finally represent something that can dissuade you from smoking any longer.

Without prolonging any further, let’s check all the tips and tricks that can help you deal with this vice.

1. Creating a proper plan
First thing that you need to realize is that removing cigarettes from your life doesn’t mean the same thing for everyone. While there are those who will try to limit their consumption or decide to smoke in special occasions, others will try to quit forever. No matter what you wish to do, it is necessary to create a realistic plan before anything else. Reducing amount smoked is a step in the right direction but will not be satisfy everyone. Start with little steps and as you go you can easily increase your expectations and goal until you reach your ultimate goal and that is completely removing cigarettes from your life.

2. Creating a positive mental attitude
Like with all vices this battle can be won in your head. It is first necessary to create a positive atmosphere and to think the right way. Simply wanting to stop smoking will not cut it. If that was enough, most of the smoker would’ve stopped smoking by now. Instead you need to create a list with all the reasons why smoking is bad for you. This will strengthen your will and persuade you that you’re making the right decision. With all this being said, it is also necessary to mention your current mental state (regardless of smoking). If you are depressed or have some other issues pulling you down in life, it will be very hard to stop. Only with a clear head can you start tackling the issue.

3. Find a substitution until you completely quit
As I already mentioned, going cold turkey overnight is rather hard thing to do. This is why most smokers decide to deal with their nicotine addiction slowly. Before they completely give up on in, they try various substitutions. Main thing with these substitutions is to provide you a feeling as if you’re still smoking and actually you’re not. This is very important as cigarettes and tobacco create a motoric dependency where you’re used to having something in your hands. Best way to deal with it? Get e-cigarettes. They use vape juice or e-juice instead of nicotine. It is a substance that is much healthier and doesn’t cause dependency. At the same time, you will still have a feeling of smoking and this will allow you to slowly reduce and ultimately remove smokes from your life.

4. Rely on support
When it comes to vices most people hate relying on support groups and family. This is mostly due to our arrogance. We think that this is an issue we will easily be able to tackle and tend to sneer on anyone’s attempts to assist. However, support groups have shown incredible results over the years. Best thing about them is the fact they consist of people who have already been through same hell as you did and have learned valuable lessons. There are also those who managed to quit and they represent a shining example of how your life could be. Family is also very important in this situation. Although family doesn’t have the same teaching purpose it definitely can help you in an emotional way. They can also be there when you need to take your mind of cigarettes and do some fun activities.

As you can see, it can be really easy to quit smoking. All you need is a proper plan a support of your friends and family!

Be Informed With Your Next Car Purchase


Sponsored post.

Car Shopping…..Does anyone really like it? I’ll admit, I kind of do, the shopping part, the looking, the test driving, that’s all the fun stuff when shopping for a new car. But the researching and financial aspect sometimes that’s not so fun.

It’s not as simple as getting into a dealership and picking out a car and saying that’s it. It’s a major purchase that requires some thinking, debating and time. A place I’ve found to be a great help is Cars.com. You can find a ton of information to help you with your next car purchase. As a blogger, when it comes to making a purchase of any kind, I love to read reviews, and see reviews in videos and that’s why I love Cars.com because I’m able to see real reviews, and videos of the cars I’m interested in, without having to go to the dealership and dealing with sales people. Finding unbiased opinions especially if I have a few different cars in mind is what I look for.

Walking into a dealership not knowing what you want, or knowing really anything about the cars you’re dealing with is a big no no. Sales people can smell that a mile away, and you’re more than likely going to get sucked into something you didn’t want, or need. Going in with a clearer idea of what you’re looking for, and having information about it means you’re more informed to make a proper decision.

So go ahead, take the time to get educated, have a few options in your head that you might be thinking of, and walk into those dealerships with a sense of confidence in knowing what you want, not leaning into what they think you want. The time you take to do this, will save you from overspending or settling for something you may regret. A car purchase is a major purchase and shouldn’t be taken lightly. Take your time, don’t stress out about it, and go at your own pace, and with your research behind you, you’ll make out much better with the process!

GOOD LUCK!
