Have you ever tried cold brew coffee? #asobu

Have you ever tried cold brew coffee before? My first time was a few days ago, and I made it myself in my  # asobu  Cold Brew Coffee Maker.  Here's everything that came in the box: It’s looks pretty cool, is BPA free, is easy to clean, and the bottom is a reusable stainless steel thermos. It’s really simple to use- simply fill the top filtered part with your ground coffee or loose leaf tea of choice and filtered water, as per directions, replace lid, close the air vent on top, and let it brew for 12-24 hours. Personall y, I say the longer it brews the better!  Then, the next day you open the air vent and push the button (orange and black circle), and watch your drink pour down into the big thermos. Add ice, non dairy creamer, sweetener, or whatever you normally add into your coffee or tea, and take it with you. Lid is included for your thermos as well.  This is shortly after I put the coffee in. It actually was a lot darker the next day afte

5 Ways Soccer Stadiums Prepare for Extreme Weather #sponsoredpost

It’s always a disappointment when a storm starts to roll in during an exciting soccer match. However, in that situation, the most important topic on the minds of stadium crew members is the safety of their fans. Here are 5 ways soccer stadiums prepare for extreme weather. Anticipating the Weather Many soccer clubs implement commercial weather station equipment to predict the arrival and severity of an oncoming weather event. Whether it’s a hurricane, dangerous levels of humidity, or an ice storm, the clubs are then prepared to make smart decisions about game cancellations or stadium evacuations. Communicating Important Messages Keeping spectators abreast of potential weather issues is imperative. It is key to communicate important information on public announcement systems throughout the event. Some recreational facilities broadcast radar maps on stadium screens so that spectators know to take any evacuation warnings seriously. Hiring More Safety Crew

Babi Bear Makeup Brush Set Review

I'm blown away by how many different brushes I've come across for applying makeup. I mean, seriously, back in the day, I just used my bare hands, and occasionally a flat round or triangular sponge to apply things. As for eye shadow, I just used the simple, cheap sponge brush that came with it.  Today, after watching hundreds, and yes, I really mean hundreds, of makeup tutorials on YouTube, I have learned a lot of really cool tips and tricks.  I received a new set of 15 synthetic brushes, along with a zippered pouch to store them in, a small pink brush cleaning pad, and a pink beauty blender.  This set is by Babi Bear There are a few big kabuki brushes, foundation brushes, eyeshadow brushes, bronzing and highlighting, eyeliner brush, lip brush, concealer brushes, precision brushes, a fan brush, angled brushes, round and flat brushes.  I love that a beauty blender is included in the set because I love to use those too! Beauty blenders can be used wet or

What Kind of Jobs Can You Get With an ITIN? #sponsoredpost

Although an ITIN (individual taxpayer identification number) allows you to file federal taxes in the United States, it does not authorize you to work in the U.S. An ITIN number is available only to those who have to file taxes but are not eligible to apply for a Social Security number (SSN). Like the SSN, the ITIN is a nine-digit number, but unlike the SSN it must start with the number nine. U.S. Work Authorization According to the IRS, employers must verify an employee's SSN before offering them a job. An ITIN is not considered a substitute as it does not indicate that an individual can legally work in the U.S. If you have an ITIN but later receive U.S. work authorization, you must apply for an SSN. An ITIN is issued regardless of immigration status to resident and nonresident aliens who have reporting obligations under the Internal Revenue Code. Purpose of the ITIN An ITIN is available for those who have earned income in the U.S. or from U.S. sourc

Animal Lives Matter Shirt #govegan

So, I have been vegan slightly over 3 years now, and I LOVE it. I do it for the animals, I do it for health, I do it for me. I am proud to be vegan and always happy to spread not only my awesome vegan recipes and food that I make, but also love to spread the message any way that I can. My new shirt is super cute! Check it out below: It says, "I đź’— Vegan  Animal Lives Matter" I like that the heart is a part of the paw print. Simple and adorable! Here's what it looks like on me: I ordered a Medium and it fits just right. They have sizes available for men, women, and children. The colors that they have are gray, dark gray, yellow, green, and blue.

MirrorMore LED Stand Up Makeup Mirror

Having good lighting when you do your makeup and hair is definitely a necessity. My new LED MirrorMore Stand Up Mirror is exactly what I needed in my room.  This is what it looks like: It is a great size! It is a very sturdy mirror. It's a little heavy, but can still be taken when traveling, in a back pack, duffel bag, or suit case.  It has a satin nickel finish, mirror that swivels up and down, and energy saving light. Although it is energy saving, it still gets bright enough to apply your makeup and hair just right. One side of the mirror is regular sized and the opposite side is magnified 10x. It does come with a cord to plug it in, but you can also use 4 AA batteries to power it. This is good if you are traveling with it or if there is no wall outlet available to plug it into.  It has a toggle off and on switch.  I absolutely love this mirror! I leave it on my desk and use it every morning. I think that the lighting is very similar to outdoor l

Premom HCG Pregnancy Test Casettes

Okay, so I've been with my husband for around 8 years now. We have two children at the moment. However, I'm being honest when I say that we have definitely had a few pregnancy scares over the years. Not that I fear for pregnancy, I should actually say possible pregnancy surprises , instead of using the words scares.  So, anyway, is it weird that I like to keep a box of brand new pregnancy tests in my bathroom cabinet just in case? Can't be that weird! I'm sure some of you ladies do the same.  In fact, a few years ago when I found out I was pregnant with my daughter, I was truly glad that I had a stash in my cabinet, because I hate the waiting game. I want to test as soon as possible, and as often as I like, without having to run back and forth to the store, and also without having to spend a ton of money.  This Premom brand comes in a set of 25 individually packed test cassettes! Yes, they have their own pipettes attached to them too. All you
