Lowe’s: Build The Captain America Motorcycle (Tomorrow)

Lowe’s: Build The Captain America Motorcycle (Tomorrow)

If you’re looking for something to do with your kids on Saturday mornings, head over to Lowe’s. That’s Lowe’s the home improvement store, not Lowes the grocery store.

On many Saturdays, Lowe’s hosts a Build And Grow clinic at 10am.

On June 27, your kids can build the Captain America Motorcycle. It’s free to attend but you do have to register here before the clinic. Registration for the clinic opened today. There is limited seating and supplies available at each Lowe’s Home Improvement store. 

Have you brought your kids to something like this? What did they think?

How amazing does that Southwest Ranch Cheeseburger look? I really think it needs to make its debut at your 4th of July BBQ this year.

Speaking of, do you have your July 4th BBQ menu planned yet? If you’re looking for new ideas, check out the free Kraft “Kick Off Your Summer” cookbook. Just click the image above or link right there to get it. It’s filled with a bunch of delicious looking recipes. Personally, I think we are going to try the Easy Southern Banana Pudding at our next BBQ. The Kraft “Kick Off Your Summer” cookbook is completely free, so what’s good about that is you can click and get the book now, and then save it for when you actually need it. I’m not sure how long it will be available, though, so I already downloaded mine (just in case; I would hate to miss it!). These recipes are good for summer, but they would work any time of the year too. I mean, there’s a recipe for Buffalo Chicken Ranch Grilled Pizza. Yes, it’s on the grill, but you can make that any time. It’s never really cold here in North Carolina, so we can grill year round. And even if it is cold by you in the winter, wouldn’t you make the sacrifice for pizza?

Be sure to check out the cookbook, then leave us a comment below with the name of your favorite recipe. And if you do actually try to make a recipe from the free Kraft “Kick Off Your Summer” cookbook, be sure to tweet me a photo and let me know how it came out (or just invite me for dinner!).

This post was written for Drugstore Divas.

botoxToday, people are talking about botox more than ever. In this day and age, when individuals are so obsessed with their looks, willing to constantly change themselves while taking care of their health, this and many other similar procedures, have become the center of cosmetic industry. Although botox has been efficiently used for medical purposes in last 20 years, it gained greater popularity as one of the most efficient treatment for rejuvenation within aesthetic medicine. Among many different brands that are available on the market today, Xeomin is regarded as one of the best for this treatment.

Every drug which is used for botox is based on botulinum toxin. This toxin is the strongest toxin in existence and it is the main cause for botulism. However, even though the substance is extremely dangerous, when used properly in smaller dosage, it is possible to create a positive effect. By using Xeomin, you are able to reduce muscle activity in particular region which automatically reduces skin wrinkles that is, it straightens them up. Meanwhile, it also reduces their creation and it slows down process of aging. Botox is a medically approved therapy for facial improvement. It is used for area between eyebrows and for the area around eyes.

Each botox treatment starts with doctor’s examination after which Xeomin is injected into the face by using thin, fine needles and in precise dosage. The treatment lasts for couple of minutes and there are no visible marks that anything has been altered with your face. Usually, botox is very painless and harmless. After three to four days, you can notice the first effects of the procedure and the maximum results are visible after ten days.

Today, there are many different online drugstores that are offering this medicine. Xeomin and similar botox products are quickly becoming most sought after drugs because of the increased popularity of this procedure. If you decide to go ahead and buy Xeomin from Medica Depot, you can be sure that upper part of your face will be completely taken care off. Professionals from this online drugstore recommend that you use medical fillers in conjunction with botox so that you can achieve long lasting results and complete treatment of the entire face.

Similarly to any other medicine, there is still some chance of adverse effects. In certain cases, doctor will not be able to recommend this therapy for you. People, who are having issues with different allergies and those that are especially allergic to botulinum, should never administer this drug. Similarly, people who are suffering from different muscle and skin issue, such as inflammations, swellings and infections, should consult with their specialist before using Xeomin. Heart diseases, bleeding disorders, seizures, problems with swallowing, facial and muscle issue can pose a problem when administering the medicine.

There are various side effects that may occur as a result of using Xeomin. Eye pain, irritation, loss of strength, loss of bladder control, dizziness, rash, wheezing, issues with vision are all common. Sometimes, dry eyes, headache, diarrhea, pain, swelling, bruising may occur.
