Ways to Fight the Common Cold

Google

Over the past week, I have had come down with a cold. I had a stuffy nose, sore throat, etc.
Here are the things I have done this week to try and fight off this cold:

  • Eat Chicken Noodle Soup
  • Drinks lots of fluids, such as Orange Juice, Tea, Water, etc.
  • Takes lots and lots of Vitamin C! I recommend Emergen-C Super Orange
  • Take Zinc when you start feeling sick, it helps support your immune system
  • Use a Humidifier when you sleep to help aid in your congestion
  • Take a hot bath or shower, the steam will help open up your sinuses
  • Rub  Vicks Vaporub on your chest and below your nose, it helps you breathe better
  • Rest! The number one thing you need when you have a cold is rest!
  • Only see your Doctor if the symptoms last more than seven (7) days, you may have a sinus infection or something worse that may need to be treated by antibiotics

Hope this helps if you are currently fighting the common cold

My First SampleSource Box


Long time no see! I have been sick all week with an autumn cold. Today I am finally sharing with you my first SampleSource box. If you don't know what SampleSource is, they are a company that send you free samples to try and then you have to fill out a survey a few week after you review your samples. It is very similar to Influenster except you get to choose what you receive in your box and it is first come, first server. I signed up a little late for this round of samples and as you can see above, I didn't get a whole heck of a lot to sample.  SampleSource is currently available for both USA and Canada! If you interested, just visit www.samplesource.com

My thoughts on Interstellar

Google

Last night I saw Interstellar with my fiance.  We saw the movie in an RPX theater, which it supposed to enhance the sounds experience of the movie. I thought it did. After seeing the movie, I didn't know that Christopher Nolan and his brother wrote this film. I thought the acting, special effects, and score were the highlights of this file. During the big scenes, you didn't expect to hear organs roaring in the background music, so props to Hans Zimmer on another brilliant score. I thought the plot was good but very confusing at the same time. It had a lot of concepts that were difficult to understand. My favorite character was TARS, the robot, which was probably unintentional by Nolan. It was also very weird to see Matt Damon and Michael Cane playing the bad guys. 
Overall, I recommend going to see this movie.
