Our Must-Have Kitchen Helper Takes on Bicycle Tire Winterization #DawnBeyondTheSink

Our Must-Have Kitchen Helper Takes on Bicycle Tire Winterization #DawnBeyondTheSink
Thanks to the folks at Dawn via Double Duty Divas we're getting our bicycles ready for winterization!  This is a sponsored post but all thoughts, opinions and experiences are that of Rural Mom. 

Leaves are falling faster than the raindrops and frost has already begun to settle each morning in Kentucky.  As the day grow colder and winter looms, it's time to garage and winterize all our vehicles including bicycles.  Properly cleaning and storing our bikes ensures they will not degrade over the winter and will be ready to ride come spring!

A good scrub down will remove dirt, grease, grime and organic materials that may decompose over the winter month.  To help with our weatherization, we turn to our trusted kitchen pal Dawn to help out.  In the same way Dawn cuts through greasy messes in the sink, it zaps away dirt and grime from our bicycles, too.

Make and Take Smoothies Quickly with The Tribest Personal Blender

My daughters love it when I make them smoothies.  No matter the season, they are always up for the cool, nutritious drinks I prepare them. Only trouble is, sometimes I’m not inclined to clean up our big blender for just two smoothies. And if I make a batch ahead of time, the consistency is off by the time they ask for another smoothie. That’s why I was so excited when I was approached by Tribest, who asked if they could send me a free Mason jar personal blender set to try and share my thoughts here with you. All opinions are my own.

How Confident is Your Smile? #InvisalignBeConfident #sponsored

How Confident is Your Smile? #InvisalignBeConfident #sponsored
Thanks to Invisalign® for inspiring this discussion on confidence and self improvement.  
This is a sponsored post. However, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

My mother always said that a great smile was the best accessory a woman could own.  While I dismissed this notion in my youth, I've come to appreciate that, indeed, smiles can brighten up the most drab outfit or dreariest day!

A well-fitted outfit, a comfortably cute pair of shoes, a fresh coat of trendy nail polish and a lovely piece of jewelry all help boost my self-confidence, but I rely more on my smile to tell the world who I am and how I want to take on each moment with a positive attitude.  I try to put on my best smile often, not just for photographs, but every morning when I wake up to greet the day.  We certainly can't always smile in every situation, nor should we, but when we do it says so much about the person bearing it.
