DIY Safety Tips

Every now and again I accept a guest post. So happy to share this one with you today!

Doing some DIY at home isn’t something that should be done on a whim. Unfortunately though many people when they are working at home will ignore standard safety procedures. You might have done this so often without issue that it just becomes second nature, but trust us sooner or later an accident will happen.

If you are lucky it might just be cuts and bruises you have to show for it, but if you’re unlucky then it could be much worse. DIY accidents are more common than you might think which is why you should always follow proper safety measures. In this article, I’ am going to share some essential safety tips that anyone doing DIY needs to know.

$25 Visa Gift Card and Free Product Coupons Giveaway

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own. 

Well, I have 2 great giveaways to talk about (one on my blog at the bottom of this post, and the big Birthday Bash giveaway from Little Bites), but first let me post an update on my new cam. I did take it out this weekend to try and learn the manual settings. You can see I have done okay on some elements of it, and not so much on the others. This one would have been nice if I'd have gotten my light right. For some reason, it seemed fine to me at the time (I thought it was good!), but it the end, these came out too dark around my son's face. The photos I took of the distance, however, turned out bright as could be (not posted, just noting it). It's a learning process. I'm enjoying it. I just wish I had more free time to learn leisurely, although I'm grateful for my job, even though it takes up so much of my time. Okay, enough said about this for now, let's talk about the giveaways. The one thing you can see I did get just right is that we brought along Entenmann's Little Bites, and coincidentally (wink wink) that is part of what will be in BOTH of the prize packages discussed below.

Clipper Oxford Shoes for Women Lugz Giveaway

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

One thing I found out very quickly with the line of work I started a couple of years ago is that my high heels were useless. Standing on a concrete floor all day, and walking through the building in heels just wasn't going to fly. I'd leave with my feet aching to the point where I would get home, make dinner and just want to go to sleep. That kind of life was not for me, but what to do? Thankfully it was an easy fix, or so I thought...switch to flats, which I did, but still ended up with such achy tootsies. We have to wear dress clothes, it's not optional. Now I had a dilemma. You can't wear athletic shoes with trousers. Enter Lugz and their new Women's Clipper Oxford shoes that are just sporty enough to pass for athletic wear on the weekend, and just dressy enough to pass for 'dress' shoes at my job!! I've been wearing these and no one has said a word about them breaking dress code, and at the end of the day my feet really do feel fine (whew). 

$15 Fandango Gift Card and Zak Resuable Water Bottle Giveaway

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

Let's talk water bottles. Why? Because if you like to make sure your kiddos are hydrated on the go, not all water bottles are created equal. Both my youngest son and my granddaughter carry water quite a bit, and they like to have them in their own bottles. Zak makes a great selection of them, as well as many other items (for kids and adults). Right now we're loving their new reusable water bottles from The Lego Movie 2 collection.
