Christmas and Holiday Events in Brevard County, FL (sponsored)

Disclosure: I received no compensation for this post. I'm writing it to inform my readers and others of events in my area, for EventBrite.

Hi! I was asked by the great people at EventBrite to write a post about events going on in my area during this time of the year.  I really couldn't think of anything really going on in November related to fall activities, so I'm opting to write about holiday and Christmas-themed events/parades going on this month. Check out EventBrite 's page  here to get tickets to events in Brevard County, in FL, or in your area, wherever you live in the USA.

There is one event that I don't know for sure when it will occur, and it's the Bible on Parade. It usually happens within the first 2 weeks of December in Melbourne, FL. I compiled this information about the other parades with a friend of mine, Jessica.   

Below is a list of the parades in our area:

Merritt Island Parade : December 3, 2016 at 10 a.m.  It goes from Merritt Island High School and goes to Edgewood Junior High School.

Cocoa/Rockledge Parade :  (for some reason or another, we keep on missing this parade! It happens on son's birthday, and we usually haven't been around for it!) It's on December 10, 2016 at 5:30 p.m. 
It goes from Rockledge High School to Lee Wenner Park (Florida Avenue is closed during it.). 

Cocoa Beach Parade: December 10, 2016 at 1p.m.   
1 Minuteman Causeway, Cocoa Beach, FL 32931

Cocoa Beach Christmas Boat Parade: December 10, 2016 at 6:00 p.m.

Merritt Island Boat Parade: on the river on December 10, 2016 at 6 p.m.

If you get the chance to come over to Brevard County in FL, try to go to one of our parades!

There are some really awesome sales going on at the site, and there is also a free product  as well (all you have to do is pay for the shipping on the free item). You'll see the item and the others on Hayley's Blanket Scarf . The discount code that I'm sharing with you is :   30off

Holiday Gift Guides 2016 TWLOHA (sponsored)

Disclosure: I received information from TWLOHA to post, and no compensation was received.

Since I have posted on TWLOHA previously in the past year, if I remember correctly, I  really felt that they were an important group to include in hopefully one of several gift guides for this holiday season 2016. TWLOHA is a non-for-profit movement involved in getting rid the stigma of mental health and letting people know that they are not by themselves. They present hope for those who are having problems with suicide, depression, self-injury, and addiction. They also invest in treatment and recovery.  This group has been around for about a decade, so they aren't a new start-up. For more information about TWLOHA, go to TWLOHA .

They offer t-shirts, iPhone cases, beanies, tote bags, stickers, notebooks, and a lot more in their online store at TWLOHA shop.  ALSO, if you are in the Central FL area, on November 12th, they will be having a warehouse sale at 404 E. New Haven Ave, in Melbourne, FL 32901. I am not tied into them in any shape or form,  but I really feel that they are a very worthy cause.
Here are a few pictures of the many items that they offer for sale in their store online!

MiraFIBER (review)

Disclosure: I received free product for review from Bayer, via BzzAgent, in order to facilitate my review. The opinions expressed were my own.

Okay, so constipation is a subject that many don't want to discuss in their own households, much less with their friends or coworkers, or even total strangers! I'm discussing constipation with you today, in hopes that I can share my opinions and maybe even some information with you about MiraFIBER!
I have had IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) since I believe with '93 or '94, it's been so long ago that it started that I just can't remember anymore! As one with IBS, I've either had normal bowel movements, or constipation, or diarrhea. Having anything other than normal bowel movements is not fun, to say the least! TMI, I know, but this is real!

For the past few months, if I wasn't taking a bowel med, I was very constipated and I would have some gas and bloating with it. The gas and bloating weren't very comfortable. There are some meds out there for constipation that are over-the-counter that weren't working for me at all. I was given the opportunity to try MiraFIBER, and I signed up for it before I got put on a  prescription med for constipation. I will admit that I went off of my prescription bowel med for a bit so that I could give the MiraFIBER a chance.

Some reasons for someone to have irregularity are: aging, not drinking enough water, not active enough or not getting exercise, low fiber in the diet, and holding your bowel movements in (resisting the urge to go poop).  Remember that regularity varies from individual to individual!
Some ways to encourage regularity are drinking more water, exercising,  and increasing fiber in your diet.  Some foods that are high in fiber are prunes, oats, brown rice, peas, kale, to name a few!

MiraFIBER with DailyComfort Fiber comes in three choices: MiraFIBER Orange Powder, MiraFIBER Sugar-free Orange Powder, and MiraFIBER Caplets. I chose the MiraFIBER Sugar-free Orange Powder to use. I used a tablespoon of the SF orange MiraFIBER with somewhere between 12-16 ounces of water the first time that I used it, and stirred it well before drinking it down. I did have to add a pinch more water to drink with it. You want to make sure that you mix the powder well, so that you don't choke on it.  After the first use, I didn't go so well. I seriously didn't pay attention to the instructions, I guess, because you can use it up to three times a day. After that I followed the instructions and it worked much better! My tummy was happy!  My opinion... I felt that it worked and was helpful when I followed the instructions for the product. Do I recommend it? Yes! Also for more information, go to !

I do have a few coupons that I can share with you all if you want to try it. E-mail me at if you are interested in trying it.
