Straight Talk's Amazing Mobile Phone Deal

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Straight Talk for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

If you think you are saving with your mobile plan today, well think again! I have just recently spoken with a group of mom’s about mobile phone deals and the best one that I heard so far was this Straight talk no contract mobile phone plan. It has got everything you need just like when you are on a contract plan! Two of them got this Straight Talk “All You Need Plan”. For $30 a month, they told me it has 1,000 minutes worth of calls and 1,000 minutes text messages and 30MB free web data, which is not bad for a monthly allocation. I was very keen on this so when I got home today I had a look at the website and saw an even amazing deal from Straight Talk, an unlimited service for just $45 a month. Unlimited calls, txt and internet, which means you not only call a friend but you can call all your friends with your unlimited calls!


This is actually the cheapest unlimited plan I have seen and the phones are not bad too! Load of choices from trusted brands such as Motorola, Nokia, Samsung, LG and Kyocera. Most of them are smart phones and some are touch screen phones which already got features like camera, video recording, music player, navigation system, blue-tooth, and wifi connection. I was even surprised to see a phone there for $10! It is however reconditioned, but I thought of getting one for my daughter. Told her about it, she smiled and said “Can I have the unlimited one? So I replied “mom knows best, you can have the All You Need Plan of $30 a month! Still, she is very excited about it.

I have here a testimonial video of Straight Talk real customers, I got this from YouTube and I think this will give you an idea of what you to expect if you switch to Straight Talk.

Children waking up during the night

They say that half of all children under 5 go through periods of waking up at night. Some would go back to sleep on their own and others will cry. My little one cries every time she wakes up at night and that keeps happening most of the night until she is 2 years of age. Well, that is when I figure out what was the reason why she keeps waking up. There are two reasons why she keeps waking up at night and one of those is that she is hungry. What I did is make sure she has eaten something before she goes to sleep, a cereal or sometimes if she refuse to eat, I would give her a warm milk to keep her full until the morning. During the winter, she does it again, but not because she is hungry, but because she is cold so I make sure she wears long sleeve pyjamas with sock on and that solves the problem! Hope this helps.

Herbal Mood Enhancer

If you are looking for ways to enhance your mood, or if you suffer from depression or mood disorder due to stress and anxiety, then you might want to check out this herbal mood enhancer products from Herbal City LLC. I am actually writing about this since I suffer from postnatal depression and I prefer to drink only Herbal products.

I have not tried this yet, but a friend of mine has said this does work with her depression problem, so I am looking into trying one of this. Now, I have been to the website where my friend got her herbal mood enhancer and saw that this are what people use when they are partying, clubbing, or when they are performing, for those who works in the music and acting industry.

To be honest I was a little concerned about this as far as what the contents are in the herbs, but they do have a certificate on their website saying that the products are 100% legal, and lab tested that there are no illegal chemicals on it that would harm a person using it. So I guess that should be alright for me. Anyway, you are welcome to check their website and check their products if it would suit your needs at Herbal City Party enhancers.

Signs of postnatal depression

Most of new mothers feel low occasionally and lack of sleep, stress, and maybe the strain of balancing paid work and parenting, and money problems, all contribute to making early stages of parenthood difficult. I had the same feeling when I had my baby and had to see a doctor because I was not sure of what I am feeling at that moment, but luckily I just had the baby blues which sort of the same feeling as a depression but would just disappear in a couple of months. The doctor told me that, a person who suffers from depression will feel all, or some, of these things:

• Tired, but can’t sleep
• No appetite or are overeating
• No interest in yourself
• No interest in your baby
• The smallest chores are almost impossible to manage
• Never stop crying

So, if you think you are suffering from depression or you noticed that there is something wrong with how you feel, it is important to see a doctor and talk about it. Believe me, it does help to talk to someone who knows and could understand what you are going through.

Dealfun the New Auction Website

I recently came across this new auction website called and this really sounds interesting! The website is an auction site but there is also a buy it now price for people who wish to purchase the item straight away, without waiting for the auction to end. I have noticed that all items listed on the auction of this website are brand new, sealed and comes with a manufacturer guarantee.

Now, I have not won anything yet neither has started bidding but I have read a lot of people winning from this website and it looks like a good way o get a really good bargain! On my observation products like iPad 2 16GB with wifi would only go through the hammer on their auction for as low as £86.05 and a Acer Aspire 10.1 inch notebook for only £22.21 and a lot more electronic products like LED TV’s, iPhone, and PS3’s. There are also items like Watches, Jewelleries, and toys for such a low price.

Reviews of this website are good too when it comes to customer service and has said to be prompt and courteous! This has no weekly or monthly win cap and it has this win guarantee thing that if you do not win in the first 24 hours, all bids are rest. It also has a beginner’s auction for starters like me, which is now what I am looking at as of the moment. For further information, I suggest that you check out the website or check out what yahoo finance news has to say about the exciting twist on online shopping at Deal Fun.

What to do if your child is burnt or scalding

I got this from a book of emergency first aid that was given to me a long time ago from a health clinic and I think as a parent we should know something about first aid and what to do in case of emergencies. Now here is what to do in case you find your child screaming out of pain from a burn or scald.

• Immediately put the burn or scald under a running cold water to reduce the heat in the skin.
Do this for at least 10 minutes. If the running water is not available, immerse the burn or scald in the cold water or any cooling fluid, such as milk or other cold drinks can be used.

• Cover the burn or scald with a clean, non-fluffy cloth like a clean cotton pillow case or linen tea towel or cling film. This cuts down the danger of infection.

• If clothes are stuck to the skin, don’t try to take them off.

• Depending on the severity of the burn or scald, see your doctor or call an ambulance or take your child to the hospital. You should seek medical help for anything other than a very small burn.

• Do not put butter, oil or ointment on a burn or scald. It only has to be clean off again before treatment can be given.

• Don’t prick any blister. You’ll delay healing and let the germs in.

6 Tips for New Vet Techs

Congratulations on completing your Veterinary Tech program. Hopefully you have passed the board exam and you are now set to be employed in a position that has a fantastic job growth outlook. Now it is time to get out into the work place and start doing what you have dreamed of. Here are some pointers for new Vet Techs:

6 Tips for New Vet Techs

1. Become a member of the National Association of Veterinary Technicians of America. . For Vet Tech students it costs $25 per year and for Vet Techs, Assistants, and Veterinarians it costs $50 per year. It allows you to network with your peers and offers continuing education for those wanting to keep up-to-date on the latest information. There are other organizations out there, but this one is a good start.
2. Keep your mind open. Just because your schooling has ended does not mean there is no more to learn. What you learned in the class room was theory, now you have to learn how to put it in to practice. Also, any career in a medical profession, human or animal, is ever changing. You will learn new information concerning your job on a daily basis.
3. Don’t limit yourself to the vet office. There are a number of different positions that you can be hired for as a Vet Tech. There are research facilities, Colleges and Universities, and rescue facilities. Think about what you really want out of your career as a Vet Tech and make a plan to have it be a rewarding one. There are many different ways to help animals.
4. When you have started your new job as a Vet Tech, don’t be afraid to ask for help. Nobody expects you to know exactly what you are doing but you need to make sure you are doing your part to learn the right way to do things at your new job.
5. Take notes. When you are asking for help, write down any information you get to reference if the question arises again. Writing it down makes it appear that what this person is telling you is very important, which it may be. Also, if you have to ask the same questions over and over again you will appear to not really care what your coworkers are trying to teach you.
6. Enjoy your new career! You have worked very hard to make it to this point in your life. An employee who enjoys their job will have a very rewarding career and work to advance their knowledge to become the most they can be. Employers like to see this kind of attitude, they hope it spreads through the whole staff.

L. Lubel is extremely interested in veterinarian medicine and offering information for students who want to become veterinarian technicians.

Switching from bottles to cups

My little girl is now 3 ½ years old and has just got off the habit of drinking milk from a baby milk bottle. She had been using a lidded feeding cup from around 7 month’s drinking water and juices with it but she refuses to drink milk on it. When she gets to 2 years of age, she started to drink water and juices on the cup without a lid, but still refuse to drink the milk on it. So practically at this age my toddler is still drinking toddler’s formula milk, but she does take cow’s milk on a cereal.

Recently I noticed that she likes drinking little cartoon juices with straws on it, so it had given me an idea to use colourful bendy straws on a cup of milk for her to a least try to sip it. She is now 3 ½ years old and has been eating well, so I have totally decided to give her cow’s milk instead of formula milk and that she should be drinking it on a cup.

So got her a box of colourful bendy straws and the next day when she asks for milk, I told her I forgot to buy her usual milk, but there is a cow’s milk on the refrigerator and it is just the same as her usual milk, the only thing is that cow’s milk should be on a cup. Showed her the straws and she liked it! She had a sip on it, but did not drink it all. It took her 3 days to get used to it and now, she is really drinking cow’s milk on a cup, with a straw. Over all, I am happy with this development and I am now thinking of a next move, and that is to totally let her drink from a cup without straws!

Cheap no contract business mobile phone plan from NET10

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Net10. All opinions are 100% mine.

I was browsing online looking for a good deal business phone and I found this NET10 and its very interesting phone package. I am not sure if you already knew this but this NET10 unlimited plan sound like a really good deal! Well here is what I found out, with their unlimited plan of $50 a month, you will get an unlimited text, unlimited calls, internet surfing, emails, 411, nationwide coverage and not to mention the excellent reception you will get when you are on the phone.

Well, that was one of my friend’s feedbacks about the NET10 line connectivity reception, although she only uses her phone for personal use, she was very pleased with it! She had a Full QWERTY keyboard mobile but there is a lot of choices if you do not like one of these Qwerty mobile phone and they are all from a trusted mobile phone company like Samsung, Nokia, LG and Motorola. I noticed she uses a lot of mobile internet on it, mainly for facebook and twitter and it has a good mobile internet speed, which has given me a brilliant idea that this is very suitable for my husband as a business phone, as he and his brother has this small business that requires a lot of travel and could really make use of the unlimited thing.

 I would say this is one those cleaver ways of saving money, and the best thing about NET10 is that it is a no contract mobile phone service, so you will not be charge for anything at all if you wish to downgrade into a lower monthly plan, or switch to a pay as you go. No need to fill up loads of forms when you join in, just buy your desired NET10 phone and have it activated, then register and get a refill and you can start using it start using it,  more like a pay as you go, but a lot better when it comes to services. Anyway, you can get more information on this see the Light video as well as this a really cute NET10 commercial from NET10 to brighten up your day!

Here is a testimonial video of a real NET10 customer :

Things you should check when buying baby foods

It can be useful to have a few jars, tins or packets of baby foods in the cupboard, but don't let them replace home-made foods altogether. If you buy baby foods, these are the things you should check:

• Check the “use by” and “best before” dates.

• Check the seal on the cans and jars haven’t been broken.

• Read the instructions carefully about how to prepare the food.

• Avoid these foods before 6 months: wheat-based foods which contain gluten, nuts, seeds, liver, eggs, and fish- check the label for these.

• Choose foods which state they do not contain added sugar.

• If your family has eczema, hay fever or allergies to food, do not use peanut butter.
