Protect Your Eyes

Boy, is it sunny out!? When it's this sunny and hot outside you definitely need sunglasses and these days sunglasses shouldn't be worn just for looks. The UV rays from the sun can ruin your eyes, even on the cloudiest days.

Why should we wear sunglasses...?


1. According to Shelley Levitt from WebMD.com "UV radiation increases your odds of getting cataracts which cloud the eye’s lens and lead to diminished eyesight." Protecting your eyes from UV radiation is necessary. 

2. Levitt continues to say, "Sunlight that bounces off highly reflective surfaces such as snow, water, sand, or pavement can be especially dangerous." So, when you're sitting at the beach, put on those shades!

3. Sunglasses prevent dry-eye problems. According Performance Eyecare "Windy environments, especially those that occur in dry climates, can easily dry out both the skin and the eyes, causing dry-eye syndrome. Sunglasses help protect against dry-eye syndrome by blocking the wind and dust that could gain access to your eyes."

4.  Less squinting and eye strain. Performance Eyecare also says, "When you wear sunglasses, you will decrease the amount of squinting you will do, which will allow you to see more clearly and will help your eyes to feel less tired." Who doesn't want to have less wrinkles and look more awake?

5. Sunglasses make you look good and feel good! ACLens says, "While this isn’t a tangible benefit, it may be the most important factor for some people on which type of sunglasses they buy, or whether they choose to wear sunglasses at all. Sunglasses have long been associated with glamor, 'coolness', and are one and the same with hollywood elite." Not only will you be protecting your eyes, but you'll look cool too!

Lawn Care

Who doesn't like an amazing looking lawn? Although, with all this rain we've had it's sometimes hard to keep up, but I do my best to keep my yard looking great. Everyone has their own lawn tricks and that includes me. I use all my favorite Heartland products to keep my lawn looking perfect!

Including this Greenworks Electric Tiller. This Greenworks tiller runs on clean, quiet electricity & features 4 rotating tines that loosen soil & pulverize grass & weeds so you can clear them away with ease. 




A nice green lawn requires lots of watering and plenty of seed. I use this Tri-Pod sprinkler and this grass seed to make sure my yard stays bright and thick. 


Keeping the grass short and saving money is always ideal that's why I enjoy this Sun Joe Lawn Mower, it's electric! This mower has an efficient 12 amp electric motor that eliminates expensive gas, messy oil & toxic fumes. Also features 14" wide cutting path, durable steel blade for smooth cutting, compact design that stores easily, easy push button switch for instant starts, maintenance free design, hard top rear bag that catches clippings for quick clean up and three-position height adjustment up to 2.4" high. 

Keeping my bushes short and beautiful is also key to making my lawn look its best. I use this Hedge Trimmer to trim my bushes.  The ultra-lightweight Garden Groom has a rotary blade system that quickly trims shrubs & bushes then mulches clippings to 1/10 their original size and collects them in the on-board container or large collection bag.

What's your trick to making your yard look its best?

Hittin' the Beach

Finally the summer is here and I cannot stop thinking about all the exciting activities that summer brings! Especially going to the beach, it's my favorite pastime. Relaxing in the sun, listening to the water, it doesn't get any better than that.

I got all sorts of things to make my beach experience even better. Including this beach cabana. So when I don't want to be in the sun, and there are no trees around, I can relax in the shade.

http://www.heartlandamerica.com/browse/item.asp?P=I&PIN=177816&SC=WBH11000

When I just want some privacy and some relaxation I pop in my waterproof headphones. No need to bring my nice MP3 Player to the beach when I have this one, I wouldn't want to risk my good one getting wet at the beach.
http://www.heartlandamerica.com/browse/item.asp?P=I&PIN=161605&SC=WBH11000

You can't hit the beach without the proper eye wear. These Puma Sunglasses are my favorite. The aviator style isn't only sleek looking but they protect my eyes from the bright sun rays.

Of course you'll get thirsty and you'll need a cooler to keep the drinks cold. How cool is this Retro Cooler? It even has a bottle opener!

http://www.heartlandamerica.com/browse/item.asp?P=I&PIN=125737&SC=WBH11000

And when you're ready to hit the water, you'll need a great floating device. This tube is perfect for floating around the lake or getting pulled behind a boat.
http://www.heartlandamerica.com/browse/item.asp?P=I&PIN=176892&SC=WBH11000

With all these items I'll definitely be ready to hit the beach!
