Books To Read To Celebrate Dr. Seuss Day (March 2)

Looking for a way to celebrate Dr. Seuss Day on March 2? Check out this great list of Dr. Seuss books from www.drugstoredivas.net.I love Dr. Seuss. I actually did a report on him when I was in college. Did you know that his dad actually was pushing him to be an actual doctor. He didn’t want that path, but he wanted to please his dad, as we all do, and that’s how he came up with his moniker.

Cool, right?

Also cool: Dr. Seuss has an entire day. March 2, to be exact. That’s a great excuse to pick up some Dr. Seuss Books and read them with your children. Check out our list of great ones below and get them in time for Dr. Seuss Day.

What To Bring When You Visit A New Mom

What To Bring When You Visit A New Mom

This review was made possible by iConnect and Luvs. I was provided compensation to facilitate this post, but all opinions stated are 100% mine.

Heading to see a mom and her new baby? Here are a few thing to bring when you visit a new mom.If you’re like me, you don’t have kids, but you have friends who are either pregnant or new moms. And of course, you want to visit them and meet the new baby. Bur you don’t really know what to bring, considering you don’t have a baby of your own.

So I asked my friend — young mom to Alex and future mom to baby-on-board — for a few items. I was surprised to know that her list was a bit different than what I actually would have thought. Good thing I asked. 

To make sure you bring the right things to a new mom, be sure to check out our list below.

What To Bring When You Visit A New Mom

Food.
It’s hard to cook when you’re taking care of a brand new baby. A new mom needs to fuss over him, not fuss over dinner. So bring over a tray of baked ziti or lasagna, something the mom can put in the freezer. Then, on nights when she’s just too tired to put anything, she can take it out of the freezer and heat it up for an easy meal.

Hand sanitizer.
This is more for you than the new mom. When a baby is brand new, a mom is going to be hyper-concerned over clean hands touching the baby. You might think she is being excessive, but you need to respect her. And so,  carry a little hand sanitizer with you to make sure your hands are clean and ready to hold the baby. Then, “accidentally” leave it behind for the next guests.

White onesies.
Babies are dirty. Oh, they’re so sweet and cute and smell like babies, but they also poop and puke and it’s hard to keep up with the amount of laundry that babies create. Of course, a new mom would love to keep her kid in adorable outfits all the time, but, realistically, she’s probably just putting him in a white onesie. So the more mom has, the better.

Diapers.
Babies go through a lot of diapers. So, even if you picked up some for the baby shower, bring a pack along with you when you go to visit. Mom will sure appreciate it.

Speaking of diapers, you can get a print-at-home Luvs coupon for $1 off any one diaper pack. You can use this coupon at any mass, discount, or grocery stores where Luvs Diapers are sold.

Luvs diapers are softer and more absorbent than ever before, with large stretch tabs for easy fastening, ultra-leakage protection and a money-back guarantee, Luvs Ultra Leakguards with NightLock Plus™ provide the high-quality features babies and parents need for less cost than the premium brands. Sounds perfect to bring to new moms.

4 Ways To Take Care Of Your New Cat #PetSmartCart

4 Ways To Take Care Of Your New Cat #PetSmartCart

This post is sponsored by PetSmart® and the BlogPaws Pet Influencer Network. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about New Low Prices on Friskies and Fancy Feast at PetSmart, but Drugstore Divas only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. PetSmart is not responsible for the content of this article.

Cats are funny creatures. They can pretty much take care of themselves. Okay, it completely, of course, but they are sure a lot less work than other pets can be. So if you’ve been wanting to get a cuddly pet, a cat is a great idea.

If you do decide to get a new cat this year, this post is a good way to kick off that new relationship. We have four ways to take care of your new cat … starring my parents’ cat Sox. How cute is she? Doesn’t she just make you want to get a cat?

4 Ways To Take Care Of Your New Cat

1. Play with it.
Oh sure, it seems like playing with your new cat is a no brainer. But it’s actually really important for you to do so. If you have toys, like a laser pointer for your cat to chase, that is a great way to exercise him. You probably won’t take your cat out on a walk, so you need to find ways to get him some exercise indoors. And playing with him is great for you too.

2. Groom It.
This is really important, but even more so during seasons when your cat sheds more often. Your cat will use its tongue to groom itself. That’s great, until your cat gets a hairball and you are stuck cleaning it up. To prevent that as best as you can, purchase a cat brush and use it to brush off any excess hair from your cat. The more you can get, the less your cat can ingest, so do everyone a favor and groom him.

3. Clean The Litter Box.
Cats are great about the bathroom. They don’t need to be trained on how to use the litter box. They just know. What the cat can’t do, though, is clean its box; that part is up to you. You want to clean it often because if it gets too stinky, your cat will not use it. And that will create a big mess for you.

4. Feed It Wet Food.
Cats need to stay hydrated. They can do that with water, but some cats (especially males) may not drink enough. So they can supplement their water intake with wet food. That’s why it is important to always stock up and have it on hand.

You can do that right now at Petsmart. The pet store sells a bunch of varieties of Friskies and Fancy Feast wet canned food. If your cat is new, you may not be sure if he prefers fish, beef, or poultry, so, by going to a store that sells a wide variety, you can buy a bunch and see what your cat likes.

Even better, you can stock up and save at Petsmart. You’ll also get additional savings when you purchase 24 or more cans. Head over to your local store to get more details. 

My parents’ cat Sox loves beef flavored food, and I stocked up for her recently. She is not my biggest fan (mostly because I love to pick her up and snuggle her when I see her, and cats like attention more on their own terms). But when I showed up with a bag filled with wet food, oh, she was my friend! She enjoyed her meal so much that she was licking her lips in appreciation.

If you have a cat, be sure to leave your tips in the comments, so new cat owners can check them out.

1 Night Movie Review

1 Night Movie Review

Drugstore Divas received a link to stream this movie for this 1 Night Movie Review. All thoughts and opinions belong to Drugstore Divas.

Today is Valentine’s Day, one of my favorite days of the year. It’s just a day where it’s okay to let your heart fill and bubble over with love and hope and happily ever after. Plus, it’s also a really good excuse to binge watch sappy romantic movies. And sure, maybe you choose the classics, but this year, I watched an advanced copy of Level 33’s new film “1 Night.”

It’s cute.

It’s also really predictable, but let’s be honest: all the best romantic comedies are.

See, I’m the kind of person who reads enough of a book to find out who the main characters are, then reads the end to find out what happens, and then goes back to finish the middle. I don’t like surprises, I don’t like not knowing what is going to happen, and I don’t like not being in charge.

So a suspense, a cliffhanger, a show on a streaming network that still has a few seasons to go … not for me. But a romantic comedy and it’s predictability and its happily ever after, I will sit through every one. And throw in a line like, “(Women) don’t want nice. They want extraordinary. They don’t want a hug. They want a punch in the gut.” Yup, you’ve got me hooked.

Justin Chatwin’s Drew says it to Kyle Allen’s Andy, two of only seven speaking characters in the just-over-one-hour movie. It’s one of the better lines in the movie, although there are a couple that jump out at you. What really stand out, though, is just how adorable Andy and Bea (Isabelle Fuhrman) are together. It’s their prom night, and they’re high school seniors. It’s a time when it seems there’s a world of opportunity in front of them. Except, if we’re all being honest, when you’re almost-graduated teenagers, there’s less possibility than notion of possibility. They’re kids. What’s there to do besides find the gravity in working a boring summer job. But being so young puts such monumental significance on everything and that includes falling in love.

Oh how we fall when we are babies.

And how we fall when we see that young love. It’s just something so pure, and that’s exactly what we — and Drew and Elizabeth (Anna Camp) — witness.

The movie actually ends with a twist, as far as romantic comedies are concerned, but not as the viewers are concerned. You’ll put it together right away. It doesn’t take away from the movie. It actually makes you like the characters more because, for me, if not for that revelation, I wouldn’t have cared for Elizabeth. Pitch Perfect’s Anna Camp is the highest billed on this, but I think she’s the weakest actor of the four leads.

If you’re looking for something cute to watch, this is it. And, in honor of Valentine’s Day, we’re giving away a digital copy of the movie.
