SNICKERS ® Asks, Who Do I Become #WhenImHungry ?

#WhenImHungry

 See more great SNICKERS® recipes and fun stories on the SNICKERS® social hub

When I’m hungry, I’m hungry. No ifs, ands, or buts. This is especially true in the mid-afternoons. I get into a mid-afternoon slump and for me I just need a little pick me up that gives me a little boost and back on track for the rest of the day. I am especially looking for snacks that can give me protein and a bit of sweetness and this is where SNICKERS® comes in. Thus, I was really excited to be asked to go out and pick up a few of these great candy bars at my local Speedway convenience store thanks to #CollectiveBias.

Snickers-#WhyImHungry

Lately I have been seeing Snickers’ campaign asking who you become when your’re hungry? I love this #WhenImHungry campaign as I have felt this way many times, especially after a hard day, where everything seems to be going wrong, or when you just are lacking in energy. That being said, I would have to say that sometimes I feel like the Whiners on SNL

I feel like this until I get my day back on track and getting that extra protein and energy really helps.

I had not tried some of the new varieties of SNICKERS® that are on the market. That being said, I have to say that the Snickers Extreme and the SNICKERS® Peanut Butter are probably my favorites. They are both really different, but both are amazing!

Snickers-#WhyImHungry

I love to have these snacks in my desk for those emergency days. I will be honest and say that these are not for the everyday occurrence, but I do need them every now and again and when I do, having them on hand really helps. As you can see in the pictures, I have kept a few in my backpack (I have had to use this lately due to the fact that I am on crutches with a broken ankle), but also in my desk drawer too. Both are great places that help me to have the energy I need when I need it.

SNICKERS-WhyImHungry

I also have to comment that I appreciate that they have broken the Snickers into two halves. This allowed me to be able to ration what I ate and limit the calories too. It is not always easy to be good and only eat one half, but the package is made so that I can and this really makes it convenient to help be be good! It also helps you in your portion controls too, so if you are trying to watch your portions this will definitely help. The Snickers bars also are great because they fill you up. With the amount of protein that you have in each bar you get a ton of protein that definitely fills you up between meals (or at least it did for me).

With SNICKERS® I no longer need to be one of the Whiners and instead I can get my day back on track and finish off the day strong and you can too!

 

You can have some fun and tell who you are when you are hungry too to win some great prizes!

Enter the SNICKERS® “Who are you when you’re hungry?” contest by uploading a personal photo or video from your Computer, Facebook, Instagram or use the SNICKERS® Meme Generator to create something new! Voting begins at Noon on 5/11/15 and ends at 11:59:59AM ET on 7/15/15.

Irish Spring Challenges Me to Make #MySignatureMove

#MySignatureMove

I work for a living in a professional environment that requires me to dress to the nines daily, which means looking good, smelling good, and making an impression to the students I work with on a daily basis. Thus, I am always looking for products that will make this simple and convenient and that will leave me feeling great and refreshed. While I had used Irish Spring products in the past, I had never heard of their Signature for Men product series until I was asked to try it out by #CollectiveBias recently.
IrishSpring

As mentioned, it is not that I am in a job that is overly smelly, or that I tend to get all sweaty on the job either, but for me #MySignatureMove is that I have to always look, smell and portray professionalism at all times when on the job, which is not always easy, but it is something that I have to do.

I mean really, there are times when I wish I could simply put on my Jeans and a T-Shirt, skip the shower, and head to work in a grunge look, but I know that this would definitely be frowned upon and it would not come across well to the students I work with daily!

That being said I was excited to be able to try out the new Irish Spring Signature for Men series of products. I found the near me, the closest stores that carried these products, at least now, were a few of the Walmart stores (Super Walmart stores) that were near me, so I got up early and hit the deserted aisles to find them. I found the nestled within the original Irish Springs products that I already was aware of. I had a bit of a challenge figuring out which to try so I decided to grad a few to give a number of them a shot!

IrishSpring-#MySignatureMove

I did a little more research when I got home and found that the new Irish Spring signature products are specially designed for men to keep us clean and feeling fresh and I have to say that after using them I was impressed. The first day I used it, I actually had a co-worker come in my office and say, you smell good. I was like, what??? She continued and said, there is a nice smell in the office that I have not smelled before. My first impression was to say, “what… I never smelled good before?”, but I held my tongue and simply said “thank you”.

This conversation made me think though, that maybe my own routine did need to change. I mean, if after only one day of using this (and this was the only change I had made) I received one nice comment such as this, it probably would continue in the future (and I was quick to ask the co-worker if the smell was too over the top and she said no).

IrishSpring

 

I liked both the body wash/shampoo and the bar soap that the Irish Spring Signature Products provide. The soap is ingrained with some great ingredients and it is something that is not abrasive to the skin which is important for me. I typically have to look for soap that is not highly fragrant or with too many unnatural ingredients. Sometimes soaps with these unnatural ingredients dry out my skin and irritate it. This is one reason the Irish Spring products worked well for me. Irish Spring worked to give men like me what they need and with how big of a bar this is, I will not be needing to get new bars of soap anytime in the future!

All of this being said I have to say that I have a new respect for Irish Spring! I love how easy it now is to get feeling clean and smelling great! I don’t know whether or not Irish Spring will be adding new scents or products to this line in the future but I hope that they do. Until then though I am very happy with the line itself and I have now changed up my morning routine to add in these products, and am so happy that I did!

Purchase one of the new Irish Spring Signature products and get $5 off a VUDU purchase! Take a picture of your receipt and then go to http://cbi.as/3boj to upload your receipt. Next step, enjoy watching!

Find the Perfect Big Tournament Flavor With RO*TEL #JustAddRotel

Rotel-#CollectiveBias

 

Great Savings on RO*TEL at Walmart!

 

When I think of RO*TEL, I think of my Chicken Chili (See Below For My Recipe!)! I love using RO*TEL, whether it be for family gatherings or having something to munch on as I get ready to see my favorite college teams win during the big tournament that is happening right now. The thing that I like about using RO*TEL is that they use fresh ingredients to give you flavor that keeps on coming. On top of that, you can go spicy (my pick) medium or mild (lightweight!) to get the flavor effect that you love!

RO*TEL

Dad of Divas’ Chicken Chili

Most of this recipe is a “dump” recipe and I make it to taste. Also it depends on how large of a batch you want to make. I will give you the bare bones ingredients needed!

  • 2-4 Boneless Chicken Breasts (cubed and pre-cooked)
  • 1-2 Large Container Great Northern Beans
  • 1-2 Containers of Salsa (you choice of temp)
  • 1 8oz pouch of shredded cheese – There is a mexican blend or you can just use cheddar)
  • Cumin to taste
Take a larger pot, add in beans, salsa, cooked chicken and 1/2 of the cheese. Continually stir and cook until bubbling. Taste to make sure flavor is where you want it. Adjust as needed. Once done, either add in the rest of cheese and stir in to melt or have people add this to the top of the chili when served.

Best Buy=Deals & Great Service #OneBuyForAll #shop

Collective Bias Disclosure, #cbiasBest Buy, #shop, #cbias, #OneBuyForAll

I’m a guy, but you probably guessed that by the name of my blog. When it comes to gifts, what do I and so many guys love, you guessed it, electronics and gadgets. Yes this is a generalization, but it is one that I continually hear from other guys that I know. For me, one of my first stops when shopping for electronics is Best Buy. Why shop here first versus going online? For me, I have to be honest and say that I will do my research online and read up on brands and what I may be looking for, but there is something about Best Buy and their employees that to me gives me peace of mind. Also, the staff there are so knowledgeable. I know that I can go in and ask any question and they seemingly always have the answer or know someone else has the answer.  Online you do not always have the “experts” available for you and instead you have to search more and make your best guess or ask others online for their opinions.

Best Buy, #shop, #cbias, #OneBuyForAll

Best Buy, #shop, #cbias, #OneBuyForAll

The other thing that Best Buy does that you cannot get online is the ability to get your hands on most of the items that they sell and give them a test drive. On my visit to the store I saw many examples of adults and kids alike trying out phones, tablets, computers, televisions and so much more. These people were seeing first hand the benefits of the technology and always in the background were the helpful staff members that were eager to aid them with questions.

Best Buy, #shop, #cbias, #OneBuyForAll

 

I always love having the ability to simply bask in the technology that surrounds you when you come into the store. Both seeing how things work as well as leaning through tactile means (which is how I tend to learn best).

Best Buy, #shop, #cbias, #OneBuyForAll

Best Buy, #shop, #cbias, #OneBuyForAll

I also love the breadth and depth of products that are available. Not only will you find televisions and computers, but you also will find musical instruments, household appliances, games and more. If it is technology related, best buy seems to have a connection to it.

Best Buy, #shop, #cbias, #OneBuyForAll

I also like that Best Buy tends to have great prices from what I have seen in the past and I have ended up purchasing a number of things from them in the past (such as my Nikon DSLR camera that I own) because they had the best price as well as bundling that also is sometimes available depending on the product itself. On this trip, outside of a giftcard that I purchased, I also was looking for some new memory for my camera and they had a great sale going on for a 32GB card, which is great because I end up taking a lot of pictures and memories, so size and price of card really matters.

Best Buy, #shop, #cbias, #OneBuyForAll

As I was preparing this story, I found a cool item that Best buy is now offering. For those of you on Twitter or even if you are not, Best Buy has put together a cool trending tool so that you can see what everyone is talking about. Best Buy’s trending page to show what gadgets are currently trending on Twitter (www.bestbuy.com/trending?ref=70&loc=12). Not surprisingly, apple’s IPhone and IPad are the numbers one and two at the writing of this.

Best Buy, #shop, #cbias, #OneBuyForAll

Best Buy is rewarding the Gift-Giver, from December 11-24th, every time a customer purchases a $25 or more Best Buy gift card, in-store or online, they can scan/enter their gift card number to enter for a chance to win one of the daily prizes. Customers can enter via the Best Buy app by scanning their card or by going to www.bestbuy.com/givetowin/?ref=70&loc=12   and entering their card number.

Treat Your Cat Like Royalty With @Shebabrand Cat Food #ShebaCat #CBias

CB Disclosure  photo disclaimer_zpsaa1cb05b.jpg

When I think of my cats I think of family. I see the two cats that as have as extensions of my family and treat them as such. With that in mind I am always looking for new ways to treat them well and to give them healthy, great tasting food that will not only sustain them, but will also make them happy. This is especially true with my oldest cat who is 13. Lately he has not been eating as much, so the vet told us to start giving him soft food to help him eat more. I did my research and found that there are a ton of different moist cat food brands that state that they offer the moon and back, but not all do. One of the brands that I checked out was Sheba Cat food. I had never tried this brand in the past, but the more that I read the better the brand sounded, so I was definitely game to try it out with the cats to see what they would think and whether it was an immediate hit or not (as mu cats tend to sometimes be finicky eaters).

Sheba Cat Food Shopping, #ShebaCat

When I went to the store to pick this up, I was amazed at how many varieties that they had and many were ones that I thought that my cats would simply love! I decided to go for it and jump at garabbing one of each variety to test them out and see how they enjoyed them. I also could not pass up a sale on the food itself… I mean five cents off is five cents off and on top of that I had gone to the Sheba Cat Food website and was able to get a coupon for another great offer –  Buy 6, Get 1 Free (http://www.sheba.com/Home). All-in-all, I was able to get all of the varieties at this store for only $5.00, what a deal!

Sheba Cat Food Shopping, #ShebaCat
Sheba Cat Food Shopping, #ShebaCat

I liked the design on the cans as they look expensive. One thing that I was a bit surprised at was the size of the can. We have purchased larger moist cans in the past and I thought they were all the larger ounce can sizes (we have lids for these). With the fact that these were smaller I anticipate having to either try and find a smaller lid from a pet food store, or using saranwrap or other type wrap to keep it good, especially if my cats do not polish it off in the first try.
#shebacat #cbias

In taking these home and opening the can the food had a pate look to it and was smooth which I knew would be good for my oldest cat Puffy. I ended up giving my cats a number of the varieties and thus far, all of have been a hit. For me, I am looking for cat food that is healthy and made with quality ingredients for a reasonable price and Sheba seems to have all of the above!

 

If you look at the below image you can see how happy my cat is, and for me this is what I am looking for in a cat food. Not only does it make him happy but it makes me a very happy caregiver and parent to him! On top of all of this it also gives me peace of mind to know that I am giving my cats healthy food that will give them the nutrients that they need for the future!

Giving Back to Others Is Important @Elmers #BagItForward #cfk #shop

CB-sponsored-post-white-script-600

Champions for Kids, Elmer’s Bag It Forward, #BagItForward, #shop, Dadofdivas.com

As a father I try and teach my children whatever I can to make sure that they understand the importance of not only receiving, but also giving to others. Since they have were young I have tried to help Diva J and Diva PJ learn what it feels like to give to others and also think for themselves about what they can do to make the community a better place. I was so excited to be working with the Champions for Kids campaign and the Elmer’s Bag it Forward program to give school supplies to my community.

Champions for Kids, Elmer’s Bag It Forward, #BagItForward, #shop, Dadofdivas.com

I was asked to go and shop at my local Walmart to give supplies to our local schools and to others in the community. This is so important in our community because funding has continually had to be cut for the local schools and I know that many of the teachers have been having to supplement the budgets that they have been given to make sure that supplies are adequate for their classrooms, and in my perspective this is not right. For what teachers make and the amount of work that they put into the education of our kids, I wish that all were willing to spend a little extra for the benefit of all of our kids.

Champions for Kids, Elmer’s Bag It Forward, #BagItForward,#shop, Dadofdivas.com

This is where I have to commend Elmer’s for their Bag it Forward program, as this is a great program and something that just lifts my spirits, whenever I read the stories of others that are participating. On top of this, working with Champions for Kids is a perfect fit, as they have been giving back to communities in so many ways for such a long time as well.

Champions for Kids, Elmer’s Bag It Forward, #BagItForward,#shop, Dadofdivas.com

For my shop, when I went to the store I was thinking of the fact that all of our kids need supplies to be creative. With that in mind all of the supplies that I was searching for related to this. Thus, I ended up finding a ton of crayons, colored pencils, scissors, erasers and glue that could be used by kids throughout the year to create new and innovative things within the school and at home.

Champions for Kids, Elmer’s Bag It Forward, #BagItForward, #shop, Dadofdivas.com

I was doing what I could to be a savvy shopper. One reason I love shopping at Walmart this time of year is that they usually have some of the best back to sale prices that I have found around me and with this experience it was the same.  I even ran into a couple that were purchasing school supplies to donate for another cause, but they had three carts full of supplies and in talking to them they stated the same for their reasons to why they were shopping where they were.

I was able to find some more generic crayons and colored pencils to save even more money and thus I was able to purchase even more supplies than I had first thought that I could.

Champions for Kids, Elmer’s Bag It Forward, #BagItForward,#shop, Dadofdivas.com

 

After shopping for all of the supplies I wanted to drop off my supplies right away (at least some of them to our local food bank, but alas they were closed at the time (as they have only selective hours), and the rest of the supplies I was going to donate to teachers at our elementary schools.

SAM_0808

I am so excited to be able to share supplies like these and hope to be able to continue working with Champions for Kids and Elmer’s in the future to support our schools and families that really need the help!

@MasterCard #BillPay Makes Paying Bills So Easy #MC

@mastercard,  #BillPay, #MC, mastercard

 

MasterCard Bill Pay Program Makes Paying Bills Easy

All of us have bills to pay each month and while some companies are making it easy to pay bills, MasterCard is making it even easier through their Bill Pay program. I had never heard about this program but the idea of being able to use my Mastercard was intriguing as making it easier to pay bills is definitely something that I want in my life, and if this means that I can also have the chance to win some money by paying my bills, sign me up!
 photo billpay3_zpsf328c30b.jpg
You may be asking, why have I never used this program before. well, for one, I didn’t know it existed. I use my Credit Card all of the time for purchases as I really do not carry cash around with me. However I do maintain a monthly budget and always make sure to pay off my card each month, as I have numerous friends who have gotten in trouble with credit card debt and I do not want that.

I have used my MasterCard for many years as my card is connected through the UPromise program and I receive a percentage back from all of the purchases that I make toward the education of my kids, so the rewards for using my MasterCard are amazing! Also, for me, using my MasterCard is easy and convenient, and there are no stops at the bank to get Cash or time to write out a check.

On top of the rewards MasterCard is also sweetening the deal this summer by letting anyone that uses their MasterCard between August 1 – October 31, 2013 for purchases, including wireless, cable, utility, insurance and healthcare bills and more you’ll be automatically entered for a chance to win $60,000.* I know I could use $60,000 – how about you?

 photo billpay4_zps47f15ba6.jpg

 

When I heard about this Bill Pay program I first asked myself who could I use it for. The above site that you see is the initial screen that I went to to find the program itself and enter the directory of places that allow you to use your MasterCard to pay your bill.

 photo billpay5_zpscd7a7161.jpg

 

The directory is quite self-explanatory and I found it to be easy to use. I liked the categories that they allow you to select from and the zipcode delimiter was nice too as it allowed me to see the things in my area that pertained. I looked through all of the categories and was a bit surprised to not find my cell phone provider (T-Mobile) and I had wished that I could use this for paying down some of my student loan that is serviced by Sallie Mae, but these two programs were not there. That does not mean that there was not a ton though that you could use this for. I decided to look at utilities and seeing that I use Consumers Energy and Detroit Edison for my utilities, I was happy to see both here. I chose to select Detroit Edison so that I could pay off a bill that I had coming due.

 

 photo billpay6_zps9de95fb2.jpg

 

One of the nice things is that when you select a company the MasterCard Bill Pay program will provide you with a link that will take you to where you need to go to set up your MasterCard for payment. For me when I was taken to the DTE site, I ended up signing into my account and then being able to easily go to set up my payment options.

 

 billpay9

 

As you can see below I was able to add in my information below and then be able to save this into the account as a payment option that I could use in the future. You can also set up an auto-bill pay using your preferred billing method too which is convenient and definitely makes you feel secure that you will not miss a payment.

 

 photo billpay11_zps2f7851f5.jpg

 

Once you have the credit card information entered you can easily set the amount you need to pay as well as the payment method.

 

 photo billpay13_zps2b49d53e.jpg

 

Once you have reviewed your payment information you can simply confirm the transaction and you are ready to go, it is that easy!

 

 photo billpay14_zps8eb44f86.jpg

 

If you have a MasterCard it could not be easier to use this Bill Pay program. I highly encourage you to check it out and see for yourself how this can help you too!

 

Also remember that from August 1 – October 31, 2013 you can use your MasterCard® credit, debit or prepaid card for all your purchases, including wireless, cable, utility, insurance and healthcare bills and you’ll be automatically entered for a chance to win $60,000.*

@Snapple Half and Half is Refreshing for All #shop

CB-sponsored-post-white-script-600

SAM_0297

As I have gotten older I have found that iced tea is a great refreshing drink during the day, and at the same time can be a great pick-me-up in the afternoon when I get tired from a long day. What I love about these drinks is that they are healthy and taste great. I have tried quite a bit of Arnold Palmer drinks when I go out for lunch or dinner, and I have found drinks that were good, and some that were not.

Walmart, Snapple, Snapple Half and Half, #cbias

I had not heard that Snapple had their own brand of this, what they call their Half and Half drink. I am always game to try something new and I had the opportunity to try this thanks to Snapple. The Walmart store closest to me did not carry this, so on a trip to Grand Rapids, MI, I swung by the Walmart closest to my in-laws. and I found that they carried this there.  I found that the Snapple was at Walmart and was was well displayed and that the half and half was very easy to find.

Walmart, Snapple, Snapple Half and Half, #cbias

I was really impressed with the price of this and the fact that on top of this I could get $.25 cents off and the overall calorie count was really low. I decided to grab two of these to try it out for myself and see what I thought. I had tried other Snapple products in the past and enjoyed them, so why not try this too and see if their drink lived up to the Snapple name. I was surprised to find though that they only had one size of this as I thought there might also be a smaller version of this too.

Walmart, Snapple, Snapple Half and Half, #cbias

I took these two home and the next day decided to make up a batch for work. You can see below that I usually bring this water bottle to work everyday, but it usually only has water in it. This go around I filled it up with the half and half to give it a shot.

Walmart, Snapple, Snapple Half and Half, #cbias

In trying this I have to say it was a bit sweeter than I usually drink, but it still tasted great. Later in the day I tried to vary the mix by adding a bit more water and tea and found that the sweetness became less. Though I know that this was not something that most would do, like I said I enjoy trying new things and experimenting with drinks no matter what the drink may be.

Walmart, Snapple, Snapple Half and Half, #cbias

If this sounds like a drink for you I encourage you too to try this for yourself and get refreshed. I encourage you to grab some coupons on Walmart .com from 5/24-9/30/2013 to get some money off for yourself.

@Energizer Headlights Make Geocaching Fun #LightMyWay #shop

Energizer Headlights Make Geocaching Fun #LightMyWay #shop #cbias

Energizer Headlights Make Geocaching Fun

I love to go geocaching with my kids and sometimes we do this when it is dark. You can probably guess that this can be a bit dangerous and usually I am taking multiple flashlights with me as I go on these hunts as I do not want to have myself or my kids getting hurt. The challenge is that carrying all these flashlights and the geocaching device can be a bit awkward to say the least, so you can guess that I was excited to find out about this new Headlight device from Energizer.  I could easily see myself using this instead of the handheld flashlights. So when I was asked to go and shop for this I jumped at the chance!

 

In going to Walmart I really did not know where to look for the Energizer headlights, but in my mind I kept thinking that it would make sense to look at the sporting good section of the store based on what the product is used for (geocaching in my case, but also for camping, backpacking, running, etc.).

Energizer Headlights Make Geocaching Fun #LightMyWay #shop #cbias

I seemed to have the store to myself which was nice, and it allowed me to explore in peace and quiet. When I arrived at the sporting goods section, I first looked at the camping supplies, but the product was not there. In turning the corner though, on the back wall, there was a large supply of flashlights as well as the Energizer Headlights that I was looking for.

Energizer Headlights Make Geocaching Fun #LightMyWay #shop #cbias

My first impression was that I was surprised first that there were multiple brands carrying these types of devices. At the same time though I was also pleased to find that Energizer had so many different types of bright headlights that you could choose from at different price points.

Energizer Headlights Make Geocaching Fun #LightMyWay #shop #cbias

 

After considering all of the different options I decided to go with the one you see below. The reason I chose this was based on the wave length of the light output on this as well as the different functions that the light could do. On top of this, with me being a person who loves technology, this also had the most technology on it – I mean – it had infrared capabilities – too cool! All of these functions were ones that I could easily see myself using while geocaching at night and which would make it that much easier in the end to stay safe while doing this too.

Energizer Headlights Make Geocaching Fun #LightMyWay #shop #cbias

In opening the product I found that it was easy to use and fit quite well on my head. The headlight can be custom fit to your own head and is comfortable on your head and I can foresee that I could wear this for some time without it being uncomfortable. At the same time, the light was VERY bright and the modes were very cool. I definitely would recommend this to others as well. I even tried this on my eldest daughter and I was able to fit it on her head as well.  I was so impressed with this, I could definitely see me using this for more than just geocaching, and getting these for the rest of the family as well!

 

My thanks to Energizer and Collective Bias for the opportunity to shop for this and to try this out, I am really looking forward to using this further in the future and so are my kids!
