Best Flavor from Costco EOS Variety Pack

Published / by Casey / Leave a Comment

Having been a long term shopper at Costco and a lover of EOS lip balms, when I saw that Costco carried a variety pack of EOS lip balms I was in love.

There are six different flavors in the Costco variety pack and it sells for a more than a reasonable price, given the high quality of the EOS lip balms. EOS lip balm is petroleum free and uses a variety of higher quality ingredients such as shea butter and jojoba oil. These oils provide extra protection from the elements helping your lips to maintain the moisture that they produce, particularly during the dry winter months.  Related articles here.

The variety pack has six flavors, blackberry nectar, coconut, vanilla mint, sweet mint, pomegranate raspberry, and vanilla bean. All of these flavors appealed to my tastes, although I would never buy coconut on my own. These EOS flavors were all enjoyable and flavorful, yet subtle and non-medicinal tasting, which is a major limiting factor for the competition.   For full details, Go straight to evolutionofsmooth.ca

EOS is also well known for their applicator orbs which are unique and provide a smooth and thick application. The orb is unique, fun, and sanitary as an alternative to the standard tubes on the market today. These orbs are also harder to lose in your purse.

My favorite though was the Vanilla bean which had a delicious flavor that captured the flavor of the vanilla orchid plant without seeming artificial or fake. The vanilla flavor was not overpowering and would work well as an every day lip balm without ever losing your interest. The vanilla flavor was other worldly.

Given the variety in the Costco pack, there is no need to ever divert and buy anything other than this EOS lip bam pack. Try this variety pack and find your favorite EOS lip balm flavor for yourself.

Update Your Wardrobe with Wengie’s Latest DIY Tips

Published / by Casey / Leave a Comment

YouTube Lifestyle Blogger, Wengie, has again wowed us with another DIY guide, this time for your bland and boring looking clothes. Put together a whole outfit with these DIY tricks using ordinary school supplies.

Create your own cute and stylish cutout tank by just simply using a pair of scissors. Take a T-shirt that you want to spice up a bit, and cut off one of the side sleeves. Use the side already cut as a guide to cut the opposite sleeve. You can also create a lower neckline on the tank, and to make the neckline even, fold the cut out part halfway to cut the other side. You can also use the cuff of a cut off sleeve to tie the back straps of the top to make a razorback tank.

Add some color into your plain denim shorts by first dabbing some bleach (use gloves and cover surfaces for protection) with a sponge on the lower portion of the shorts. Wash the shorts, let them dry, and then use the combination of warm water and dipped highlighter ink and start blending the different highlighter colors together to create your own unique design.

Top off your outfit with some galaxy themed shoes. Color a pair of plain white canvas sneakers with various colored Sharpie pens. Then use isopropyl alcohol (at least 98%) to coat the shoes so the colors will blend nicely together. Let the shoes air dry overnight. Then spray the shoes lightly with a white fabric spray to create an extra galactic effect. You can even hand draw a few white stars to add additional celestial flair.

The Bright Future of Basketball Guru Yanni Hufnagel

Published / by Casey / Leave a Comment

When you grow up in Scarsdale and you can’t make the varsity basketball team, you have a few options: find another sport, study hard, or become an excellent basketball analyst.

 

That’s what Yanni Hufnagel did, and it’s paying huge dividends. As the former assistant basketball coach at Harvard, he enjoyed a four-year run of success. Today, his basketball acumen is legendary and his skills as a recruiter are second to none.

 

At the tender age of 30, Hufnagel’s resume would make even the most experienced coaches raise their eyebrows. In 2009 he joined Harvard’s program as an assistant coach. Perhaps the highest praise came from a CBS Sports Survey, where his peers acknowledged that his recruiting skills would propel him to the professional level.

 

His Harvard days included the discovery of Jeremy Lin and Wesley Saunders, who he then helped become top caliber players. Another honor included being selected to a dream team of assistant college coaches.

 

Moving on to Vanderbilt in 2013 Yanni again struck gold by signing Wade Baldwin IV and Matthew Fisher-Davies to the program. He would next travel to University of California, Berkeley. Jaylen Brown and Ivan Rabb were his top recruits, cementing Yanni’s reputation as an ace recruiter.

 

He’s won praise from worthy opponents on the college and national level. Besides his chutzpah, Yanni Hufnagel is a convincing salesman – as evidenced by his ability to bring star players to the Ivy League, where scholarships don’t exist.

 

These days, Yanni Hufnagel works as an assistant coach at Nevada – the team is heading in to the 2017 Mountain West Tournament as the #1 seed.

 

With a promising future and excellent recruiting skills, Yanni Hufnagel’s ascension to the pro ranks is a slam dunk.

Goettl Air Conditioning Helps a Family

Published / by Casey / Leave a Comment

The HVAC company Goettl Air Conditioning, previously known as Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning, helped last December a family that lacked an adequate heating system.

Abana Stephenson, mother of two teenage girls, was living with her family in uncomfortable conditions. For starters, her home had no functioning air conditioning or heating system. On top of this, her toilet did not even have a tank. It even lacked a toilet seat. According to Stephenson, her daughters had to sleep in the living room during the winter in order to keep themselves warm.

But her situation suddenly improved after she was contacted by Michael Gamst, the manager of Goettl Air Conditioning. Gamst, along with other Goettl employees, volunteered their time and resources in order to help the family from Las Vegas. Not only that, but the manager did not charged the poor mother at all, who has PTSD.

So Goettl Air Conditioning installed in her home a heating system as well as a new air conditioning unit. The Sunny Plumber, which is associated with Goettl, installed a new toilet. Stephenson was very pleased. According to the Nevadan, her believed in humanity was restored due to the actions of Gamst and his associates, who also provided personal monetary donations.

Goettl Air Conditioning, other than being a “source of light,” also helped the Stephenson family financially in the long run. Since Stephenson’s heating system was very old and not working to its full potential, she was paying over $500 on electricity. But Goettl installed thermostats around her house in order to make her heating system more effective. Basically, Goettl’s installation revolves around zone control. With this type of system, for instance, people can warm or cool their homes on a room-by-room basis. Because of the new system, her electricity bill was cut in half.

Goettl Air Conditioning, which is currently owned by Ken Goodrich, was founded by the pioneers Gust and Adam Goettl. Goettl Air Conditioning is one of the most trusted companies in the HVAC industry. Goettl, other than dealing with heating or cooling issues, also handles problems relating to indoor air quality or energy efficiency. This company also has excellent costumer reviews, which can be found online.

 

Bernardo Chua Brings Chinese Supplements to Wider Audience

Published / by Casey / Leave a Comment

Bernardo Chua had the unique background to see opportunities others missed. Growing up in both China and the Philippines, he was aware of the power of ancient Chinese medicinal traditions.

After graduating from college, his interest in these remedies was sparked anew by the realization that Western medicine often completely ignored the traditional Chinese pharmacopeia, dismissing it off hand as shamanism.

A great civilization’s deep curative knowledge

Bernado Chua knew that, unlike the magic-based folk medicine of Africa and the Caribbean or the incantations of Native Americans, Chinese medicine was based on something much more substantive.

Unlike the more primitive folk remedies found throughout the world, Chinese medicine relies not on spells or magic but instead on agents – plants or animal matter that are purported to have bioactive effects.

What Bernado Chua understood that often escapes Western observers is that many of these remedies have thousand-year track records of actually making the sick better. Even though Chinese medicine lacked the sophisticated statistical, mathematical and medical tools of modern Western research methods, it can be accurately viewed as the first attempts at modern medicine.

A remedy which has proven itself to quell pain or speed recovery from the flu over hundreds or thousands of years and millions of cases, can be every bit as good as an FDA-approved drug.

Chua zeroed in on one Chinese folk agent in particular, ganoderma. The mushroom genus, which is often found throughout East Asia growing on logs in the deep woods, has many bioactive ingredients.

Chua’s genius lay in seeing ganoderma as a marketable product long before it came to the attention of Western researchers. Today, the mushroom is being studied for its host of bioactive ingredients. It’s investigated as a possible cure for diseases including cancer, liver fibrosis, auto-immune disease and even for possible use as a new class of antibiotic.

According to PR News Wire, Bernardo Chua has been bringing this miraculous natural agent to a wider audience in the form of coffee, tea and other tasty formulations. His company, Organo Gold, has become one of the largest multi-level marketing firms in the world and is making people’s lives healthier across the globe.

Maggie Gill is on a Mission of Transforming Memorial Health

Published / by Casey / Leave a Comment

Memorial Health’s CEO called for regrouping of the Savannah safety-net system after it turned out that Novant Health was not going to back a partnership. Novant, which is based in North Carolina, cited conflict with Chatham County Hospital Authority as its primary reason for terminating the negotiations. Carl Armato, Novant’s CEO, through a memo, pointed out that the authority had indicated its determination to go beyond its role and inserting itself into in-depth oversight of Memorial’s operations, which potentially results in inconsistency in the direction from the different governing bodies.

Maggie Gill talking about the hospital lease explained that the hospital authority strived to better their position and that of the county. The move was viewed as capable of leading to an unexpected financial gap for Memorial. A significant financial infusion would have been brought to the hospital system by the unresolved Novant deal. Experts pointed out that other systems would take the opportunity to be suitors if the Novant deal remained dormant.

Gill highlighted of her vision to regroup and consider the available opportunities since for-profits hospital were likely to come in. However, she added that a system that is a nonprofit would be perfectly fit Memorial.

Maggie Gill Career Achievements

Maggie Gill, president and CEO of the Memorial Health, was named as the 2016 “135 Nonprofit Hospital and Health System executives to know.” The annual list included some of the largest and successful non-profit healthcare organizations in the country. Gill was also featured in the list of the “130 Women Hospital and Health System Leaders to know.”

Gill joined Memorial Health as the VP of finance before she was later promoted to COO. She steered several important strategic initiatives that included expansion of clinical services, development of new centers of excellence, and erection of new facilities. In 2006, she was tasked with extra responsibilities as an interim CFO, a position that saw her initiate a financial turnaround that resulted in an annualized cost saving that totaled to $30 million. In 2011, Gill was named as the principal head and CEO of the Memorial Health – a position that she holds to date.
