Today we are showcasing a new blog called Sassy Cat Reviews, help out a fellow blogger get her site off to a great start! Remember a lot of us were new at blogging once.

Sassy Cat Reviews

I know “Sassy Cat” fairly well, she has decided to enter the world of blogging. You might wonder what you can expect from someone who calls themselves “Sassy Cat”, well, let me tell you a thing or two about her.

She is Sassy, and she is a cat lover. She’s also witty and kind. She is a product reviewer who also share’s her wit about life and kids.  You can expect her Sassy Cat Reviews blog posts to be entertaining and enlightening.  As a product reviewer myself, I know she will share her honest opinions about products.

So where do you find this amazingly talented witty person you are asking yourself? Don’t worry I will include all her social media links below! I know you are excited to jump at the chance to follow a crazy cat woman!

You might be asking, does this mean if I follow her I will have to look at cat pictures constantly? Nope, I already warned her about over sharing her cats! She also is not so crazy that she hordes them, she has just a few beloved cats who are spoiled rotten, she is probably the go-to woman if you want to know about cat products, though! Also solar lights, she has an addiction to solar lights.

But enough about that. Let’s lend her a hand and follow her today!

Meditation and Migraines with a Plea!

Meditation and Migraines with a Plea!

Meditation and Migraines

I suffer from some of the worst migraines. We are talking week long migraines that have no relief in sight at times. Lately, though, I have had one chronic migraine that leads me to the hospital. Usually, I am given the migraine cocktail, I sleep, then wake up and feel human again. Sadly, that’s not the case this time.

This is probably one of my longest lasting migraines and I am tired of the chronic pain and nausea. To make matters worse the hospital doctor during this visit wasn’t to versed in migraines. He gave me two shots the first time that was not effective.  When they came back and checked his exact words to me “Well I am going to give you something that will knock you out”. That’s when I was given another shot of Dilaudid and a high dose at that. I spent the next 6 hours with my faced buried in a bucket. Regretful that I ever went to the emergency room, to begin with.

Three days later and I am ready to tear off my head find a dark hole and bury it. I started googling, I found meditation can lessen migraines. What sort of migraines exactly does this work on? Obviously, stress headaches would be at the top of the list.  You can read a study that was done to prove meditation actually does help reduce headaches but let’s face it. Any technique used to reduce stress would help lower stress headaches too. I can honestly say I have tried this Meditation and Migraines hype, and I am not finding relief, due to it not being stress related.

What can you do though when your migraines are not caused by stress? I have tried it all from maintenance meds that are taken daily, essential oils, dietary changes, ice, muscle rubs, trust me if you can find it on google I have tried it.

So what do you do to end a bad migraine that is not caused by stress?  Yes, that’s me in the picture! So please leave a comment and let me know what you do to alleviate a migraine.

Hotel Experience of a Lifetime

Hotel Experience of a Lifetime

Have you ever just knew you needed to get a way but needed to do it on a budget because well you like having a roof over your head, food in your stomach and the lights on. Not to mention you have to keep yourself in high end makeup?

Hotel Experience

Well it all started with the need to get away and take the 12 year old on an overnight fun getaway, so what better thing to do but to get some tickets to Cedar Point, and if you know anything about that its expensive there. There really is no such thing as a small budget there, unless you enjoy eating sandwiches out of the back of your SUV. Yes, I have no shame, this is what we did to offset one of the cost of the meals there. I mean ONE hot dog and a handful of fries is 14.50 after all. We had already purchased the drink all day cups at 10.99 each.

The Hotel Experience

So we decided to get a hotel room using booking.com we read the reviews, and they seemed to be really good. We knew it was a cheaper motel, but we figured oh well, we will be there 8 hours as long as it’s clean and decent we don’t need all the modern amenities, we are not looking to swim there.

These are the pictures you do not see on the website.. I have included a video, I will add pictures since the video makes it look a lot nicer then what it is.

 

Pros:

Bedding was clean

Cons:

Key never worked, and manager disappeared so we couldn’t get into the room. We checked in and went to eat, came back to a mess. Had to call booking.com to call the managers “cell phone” to address the problem., The manger had the nerve to say the key worked (he used his master key) when my husband said now try this one and it didn’t work he moved us to a new room.

Hotel Experience

During the 30 minute wait for booking.com to deal with our key incident we are pretty sure we watched a drug deal go down, watch a hooker bring in a client and we know for fact we watched a sketchy dude roll a joint.
While waiting be also observed a shady looking mommy and her naked besides a diaper kids running all over the parking lot at 11pm at night.

Once we got safely in, we set the alarm for the ass crack of dawn and got the hell out of there. Unfortunately we couldn’t find another room in the area due to everything being booked. So this has been the lovely extent of my overnight getaway! It was more of an overnight ghettoway!

So this was our Hotel Experience of a Lifetime, do you have one to share?
