Spina Bifida: A special needs story



This is a cause that's close to my heart. Anyone with a special needs child understand what I go through daily. My son has Spina Bifida, club foot and hydrocephalus (water on the brain) for which he has a shunt in the head to relieve the pressure and leg braces. when I found out that the baby I was carrying had a neural tube defect I had no idea what the meant or what to expect. My worst nightmare came true, his clinical diagnosis is Spina Bifida with hydrocephalus. Which means his spine did not form correctly so his lower body does not work right either. His legs are twisted, plus needs medicine (which I have to pay out of pocket for) to release urine and bowels. Plus the hydrocephalus means water on the brain and one of his many surgeries put a shunt on his brain to help his body release the pressure of water on the brain. His eating habits are not that of a kid his age, he has a very strict diet, and it takes him way longer to finish his food.


He will be in diapers (which I have to pay out of pocket) for the rest of his life and I have to catheterize him every couple of hours. Which why I can not work since daycare's do not want to take the responsibility of doing medical treatments. He has had so many surgeries and I am so proud of him for pulling through them all and being so strong. Now has come the time for the next phase in his life, independence. This means he needs a lot of adaptive equipment needed to help him get around the house and do personal care tasks that I've been doing . Between going to all of the different types of therapy appointments, doctor appointments and surgeons appointment I don't have time for much else. Everything has one thing in common, they all want money which is something that I have less and less of as the time goes by. Any donation will be appreciated no matter how little or big.
Some of the thing that the monies will be used for are the following;
customized wheelchair $8,000
Power lift for the car $3,500 plus installation $400
Bath lift $1,500
Ramp $500
Powered Bed $3,500
Medications ($200 monthly), diapers ($800 monthly), Bed under pads ($500) other incontinence supplies plus personal care items $2800 monthly
Bathroom Safety Aid equipment - bath chair $800, Grab Bars
Special Needs Child Restraint system $800
Standard $1200

Total expense that need to be covered $24,000
If you can find it in your heart to give please go hear or share this post. I found a worthy charitable cause

Perfume Review


Searching for a perfume scent seems like a search for a needle in a hay stack; at least it has felt that way for me.  Finding a unique scent for my many moods that fits my personality seemed like a never ending quest.  That is why I stopped looking for single scents and more for a perfect blend. 
Some blends seem to have been thrown together and although they are loud and memorable it was not the type of memory I wanted to leave.  It is hard because I am not sure what I was looking for but I would know it when I smelled it.  


This is a Essential Oils blend of the following:
Red Currant
Green Apple
a hint of Jasmine
a Hind of Peach
All come together to play a symphony and dance with my senses.  It also comes in a roll on form so that you can carry it with it and delivers the right amount of scent to the place you need it when you need it.  Carry it in you purse, back pack or pocket and always be ready to leave a memorable, long lasting, and pleasant impression.  It is made in the USA and does not contain any alcohol; it is Vegan, Gluten and Cruelty free.

Hotels & attractions Deals & discount website Review



Holidays are a time to be with friends and family, which means traveling. Traveling means spending money unless you know where to get deals. Finding deals means hours if not days of research, but where do you search when trying to get the best deal on a quality hotel. Going out of town means you need everything, a place to stay, and when not with your family, friends; something to do. Finding something to do usually means looking through pages of websites to find something everyone agrees on at the best price. Gathering notebooks writing down prices and address, making charts and comparing is a thing of the past and have been replaced with the internet and electronic documents.


 What if there could be a company that has done all of the work for you so that all you have to do is search for your city? A one stop shop for all of your traveling needs, car rentals, attractions, cruises, hotels, restaurants, golf, theme parks and recreation, retail coupons, etc. How much could you actually save, up to 70%. When it comes to hotels I do not means the once start but from five star on down, whatever you are looking for big name or local deals it is all included. 


Now a members of this magnitude would usually come at a hefty price but this one comes at less than a dollar a day for a year, now that is not only a deal but, it is a steal. Plus when you are a paid member and pay on their website you can get member perk points and use them to pay for accomodations, trips and attractions in the future.

Beanie Review



During these cooler months we all need to protect our heads. A bonus about this is it has a  extra layer around the brim of it to bring extra heat where needed; your forehead and ears. That extra layer is a fleece lined headband. I love this nice and snug fit of this beanie.


When it comes to cold this beanie was designed for it. It is made by a Alaskian company.  The material half wool and half acrylic to make a premium fiber blend. The material stays warm even when it is wet. When it comes to sizing;there one size is larger than their medium.


Lastly the inside is soft and comfy. Can be purchased at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01EXRO5WO/ref=twister_Keywords=Beanie

Travel cubes

Travel organization Cubes With the holiday times upon we are all mostly likely traveling, even if it is not out of town. I have found that stay cations give me just about the same amount of joy as going out of town. When packing there always seem to be something lost that I done find until the end of my vacation that I could of used, like a swim suit or socks. This is a solution to that that problem of not being organized. These cubes come with more than meets the eye, they are mailed to you in their compressed state but once you unzip the second zipper they expand to a bigger size.


At their compressed state they are 1.5 inches and at their fullness they are four whole inches deep. They keep your items in place in the suitcase and also allow you to know what is inside with the see through mess down the middle. Upkeep is easy, cause it can be washed multiple times and stored together and still look nice.


This set dimension includes the following: large cube (42x32x10 cm /16.5x12.5x4 inches), medium cube (32x22x10 cm /12.5x8.7x4 inches), small cube (28x20x10 cm /11x8x4 inches) Can be purchased at https://www.amazon.com/Compression-Packing-Luggage-Suitcase-Organizer/dp/B07H5FVCDY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1539778899&sr=8-1&keywords=Mavgv+Compression+Packing+Cubes #reviewsbyjay #travelsmart #organiazationcubes #gotitatadiscount

Pet seatbelt buckle

This adjustable pet safety belt harness is pretty tough.  It is made of some tough material.  My dog is always moving around in the car when I am driving.  He has also been known to get out of my roped off area.  This is what lead me to get something that is tough and made for keeping him from going to far. No matter how much he tried to pull away or no matter how long the driving trips were he stay securly in one place.

The material is made of high quality nylon fabric which means no harm to dog skin or coat.  He was not itching or showing any irritation signs after wearing this on a long term road trip.The buckles are made of metal and the snaps are made of  solid zinc alloy swivel.  Both of these ends work together to make a very secure and extra durable.  No matter the wiggles that your pet makes it will not come unbuckled. 

You can also adjust the length it ranges from 20.5 to 33 inches.  So basically they can move around and be comfortable at the same time.  How wide is the buckle end, 083 inches in width.  Now it is your choice as whether you use it with a collar or harness but for your pets comfort as well as safety I would use the harness.
