Need a Costume for Halloween?

It's almost Halloween, and if you're like me, then you may have put this off until last minute or have almost everything ready but just need a few things.

Let me recommend CostumeSuperCenter.com. I ordered costumes for both of my children and it was a breeze!

First, the prices are consistent with any sale prices you'd find in a store. But.... the selection is better and there a ton of great coupon codes available to save you 10-20% on your order.

You can get expedited shipping and can track the package as it ships. My purchase arrived right on time and the costumes were exactly how I expected them to be.

The only downside...you can get carried away. It's so easy to point and click and find all the things you would have had to run all over the place to get.

Costumes, makeup, accessories, wigs, masks, everything Halloween (or dress-up.) I could have easily filled my cart with outfits for the whole family.

The kids costumes are great. They are affordable and offer a wide…

Quick Meals You Can Enjoy with Ease

Quick Meals You Can Enjoy with Ease
Many people erroneously believe that adhering to a healthy diet involves spending significant time in the kitchen preparing meals. Busy professionals are often too hungry when lunch and dinner time arrives to spend much time making something elaborate. However, it's possible to quickly create healthy options using just a few ingredients. One of the easiest quick meal ideas and recipes requires angel hair pasta, olive oil, minced garlic, cherry tomatoes and fresh spinach.
Preparing this meal involves cooking the pasta until al dente, which takes about ten minutes. Minced garlic should be sauteed in olive oil until just barely browned and then removed from heat and stirred well into the pasta with the spinach. This provides a proper amount of heat to blanch the spinach. The cherry tomatoes or canned stewed tomatoes can be served on top of the pasta dish.
One trick to get optimal nutrition out of meals is to serve everything over a bed of fresh spinac…

Pep Boys Headlight Restoration Kit

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Pep Boys for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
October is Headlight Safety Month! Bet you didn't know that, but it makes sense. The weather is about to get dingy, the days are getting darker, and children are in school so more kids are out and about.

Now is the perfect time to focus on headlight safety. The 3M™ Headlight Lens Restoration Kit will let you increase the  efficiency of your headlights from the comfort of your own garage – inexpensively and with no tools!

Why would you need something like this? The kit restores the clarity of yellowed, hazed, or dull headlight lenses. Go take a look at your headlights! If nothing else, give them a quick cleaning.

You wouldn't believe the difference it makes to have clean and functioning headlights. 
You can use the kit on most plastic lenses, including taillights, trailers, snowmobiles, emergency vehicle light bars, plastic motorcycle lights and more. So put it on your calend…

How safe is your identity

Over the past few weeks, major banks have had their websites hacked, "errors" have occurred on the stock exchange, and even countries are claiming they are under cyber attack. Times are changing and our worlds are becoming more and more dependant on our virtual accounts. But how safe are we?
Thieves have stolen my credit card numbers and went on foreign shopping sprees, taken over my email accounts and sent out messages to friends and colleagues phishing for pertinent information, and my parents had their entire bank account wiped out by identity thieves.
It can happen to anyone and it can happen at anytime. Consider the following statistics:
Households earning $100K+ per year have the highest identity fraud rate at 7.4% Having your identy stolen costs the average person $1,513 11.6 million adults were victimss of identity fraud in 2011, with losses of $18 billion 6.6% of victims are smart phone users 6.8% of victims are social media users who click on the applications…
