I live in a College town and not far from Nashville, it isn't a secret that crime goes on, but every town has their crime rates right? I had the opportunity to work with Mace on a review here on my blog and I am thrilled to share all about it with you.
Mace is pretty much the one stop shop for personal defense items. Since 1970, it has been the original trusted brand for personal defense sprays, while continuously adding high quality security products to the brand line through the year. The first item that I want to share with you is the newest product, Mace Alert 911
 This product is really cool, because at just the touch of a button, you can be connected to 911. There are NO monthly fees. The only price you pay, is the one time price to purchase this product. This product works via cellular connection. There is also a cancel button in the side. The test button to see about the batteries is on the right side of the device. It takes 3 AAA batteries, and it comes with a belt clip and "necklace". This product is really neat and is a great gift idea for anyone. I think this would make the perfect gift for the elderly too! Going on a long walk or walking home from College? With a push of a button, you can connect and get help! The Mace Alert 911 can be purchased for a one time price of only $249.00!
 I have this product in my purse. It is the Mace Exquisite Rhinestone Purse Pepper Spray. It is available in three colors. This is Mace Maximum Strength Formula… 10% OC Pepper! Keep in in your bag or on your keys! It also has UV Dye so that the bad guy can be caught even if he gets away. This can be purchased for $29.99.
 The last item that I want to share with you is the Mace Pepper Gun. This product is in my glove box right now. This Mace Pepper Gun features a trigger activated LED light that helps aim at your target in the dark. The design allows you to shoot and get the attacker from 20 feet away! Each gun includes (1) Water Practice cartridge (1) OC Pepper Spray cartridge! The water is blue and the Pepper Spray is Red. Flip the switch and pull the trigger and you are ready to go. The Mace Pepper Gun is only $59.99 on their website!

Coming To Chattanooga? Visit the Tennessee Aquarium!

We live just a little over an hour from Chattanooga! I was super stoked when we were given the opportunity to visit the Tennessee Aquarium! I have been once before, however Lydia hasn't! When you visit, you can go to the ticket booth and purchase your tickets. You can choose to go in the River Journey Building first, or the Ocean Journey. It doesn't matter, however when you visit you still have to go in both to see everything. Inside the River Journey building, visitors are delighted by feisty river otters, colorful frogs, amazing turtles and freshwater fish species such as beautiful trout, giant catfish and prehistoric-looking sturgeon. While exploring Ocean Journey, guests come face to face with big, toothy sharks, beautiful butterflies, playful penguins, mesmerizing jellyfish and thousands of colorful reef fish.
You will see all kinds of exotic plants and animals! You can check out more about the Exhibits here
 My favorite are the different kinds of Jelly Fish! They are so fascinating!
The Penguins are SO fascinating as well! They are SUPER cute! Check this out- There was a Macaroni Penguin that was the first to hatch in 2015, now there are a trio of babies! 
Check out this from the press release:  Two of the chicks are actually siblings, but are being raised by different penguin mothers. “When Bug and Big T’s first egg hatched, they were having a tough time keeping both the second egg and the chick underneath them,” said senior aviculturist Loribeth Lee. “Biscuit and Blue did not have a viable egg this year, so we were able to move the second egg into their nest. It hatched a couple of days later and they have done a beautiful job caring for their adopted chick.” This is the first time a baby penguin has been raised at the Aquarium by surrogate parents. In the past, aviculturists have supplemented feedings for any chicks that were not receiving enough nourishment from their parents. “We always prefer to let the parents raise their chicks, but we’ll intervene whenever necessary,” said Lee. “Since Biscuit and Blue have been diligent parents in the past, we believed they would do a great job caring for Bug and Big T’s chick and they have.”
Our family had such an amazing time at the Tennessee Aquarium! It took about 2 1/2 hours to go through it because we took our sweet time. If you want to visit, Admission is $29.95 per adult and $18.95 per child, ages 3-12. Each ticket purchased helps support Aquarium conservation programs. The IMAX® 3D Theater is next door to the Aquarium. Ticket prices are $9.95 per adult and $8.50 per child. Aquarium/IMAX combo tickets are $35.95 for adults and $24.95 for children. Excursions aboard the new River Gorge Explorer depart daily into “Tennessee’s Grand Canyon.” Cruise tickets are $32.00 per adult and $24.50 per child (3-12). Advance tickets may be purchased online at www.tnaqua.org or by phone at 1-800-262-0695. The Aquarium, located on the banks of the Tennessee River in Chattanooga, is a non-profit organization. Open every day except Thanksgiving and Christmas, the Aquarium and IMAX are accessible to people with disabilities.

Get The Latest Trends And Fashions For Back To School With Kohl's!

I am picky when it comes to shopping for back to school items for Lydia! The shirts, shorts, back pack and more! I also love shopping at Kohl's! (We love Kohl's Bucks!) Recently, I was given $100 to shop with for Back To School items for my daughter and I wanted to share our purchases with all of you!  Kohl's has all of your needs when it comes to shopping back to school! They have the shoes, the socks, every article of clothing imaginable and they have THE SALES! We took advantage of that last week! 
I am so excited because she already has so many pants, and shorts. She really needed some shoes, a back pack and all though it wasn't a necessity, she wanted some shirts. When you shop at Kohl's, one thing you need to remember is that when you see something online on sale, JUMP and go because the price can change the next day! I want to share with you prices and sales!
 First off I wanted to share these shoes that she picked out. These are FILA® Countdown Girls' Running Shoes.  They are on Sale (7/24/15) for $29.99/Original $49.99. When we bought them, they were on sale for $24.99! 
 The next item that I want to share are these shorts. These are Mudd® Core Denim Bermuda Shorts. They are a size 8, and come in 7-16. They are on sale (7/24/15)  $17.99/Original $36. They were that same price when we bought them as well.
 I joke with my daughter that every time we shop, she has to get a cat shirt. Because YES she does. Every single time. It is hilarious. This is the Mudd® V-neck Graphic Tee. It comes in a variety of styles! This is called Freak Meowt. It is on sale 7/24/15 for $9.99/ Original $20. When we purchased it, it was $12.99.
 This is a cute Tee, "Sorry I'm Not Sorry". It is a Fifth Sun High-Low Tee. It comes in a variety of styles. It is on sale 7/24/15 for $9.60/ Original $24.00. When I bought it, the price was $11.99.
 My pretty girl was SO stoked to show off what she picked out herself!
 These are SO® Slubbed Mock-Layer Rhinestone Tee's. They come in a variety of styles and colors! They are on sale $11.99 as of 7/24/15 and Original $24.00. They were $13.99 when we bough them.
 As you can see, prices change quick so it is a good idea to purchase while you can and when you can! We earned $10 Kohl's Cash and were able to use it the next day. Lydia couldn't find a back pack she wanted in store so we used it online and chose one! 
 It is super cute and SO her! This Hello Kitty® Backpack was $17.99 when we bought it but now it is on sale for $14.99 as of 7/24/15. The original price is $29.99. We scored a deal regardless!
Overall, we are so thrilled with our purchases for back to school! Thank you Kohl's!
