#michelleperryhiggins The Everything Binder CD Review

The Everything Binder CD is here to help you put all your important papers together in one place or at least let everyone know where everything is at.   Michelle Perry Higgins put this program together because over the years she had a lot of clients that had trouble getting important documents together for people who had passed.

She has made it an easy to follow program that you do not have to do all at once.  Take your time and do it in your spare time.  You will only fill out what applies to you.

In April my husband got a phone call to check on his sister.  He ran over to their place and found his brother-in-law in a coma on the floor.  His sister was in and out of a diabetic coma her sugar was over 900 when we arrived at the hospital.

Her husband never woke up and was disconnected from machines.  He passed away about a week later.  They were able to get her sugar down, but the next day her heart stopped and they revived her and then moved her to a bigger hospital.  She remained in the hospital about 3 weeks.

Her home now is at the nursing home.  We are the only family that is not 150 miles away so we had to box up her things and clean everything up.  We had a hard time finding important papers and some I am sure we did not find.

Also my husband is 21 years older than I am so we really need to organize our paperwork.  This review gave us the perfect reason to get that project done.

Ms Higgins also suggest that at least 2 people know where the binder is kept.  She also wants you to take it to your attorney, accountant, and any brokers so they can glance through it and make for sure nothing is being missed.

One of the first pages is an update log.  You should go through this about once a year and make for sure there were no changes that did not get taken care of.

There is a list for pre and post-death checklists.   I believe this will really help someone to contact people who can give them answers about where things are at.

Next is where you will list contact information of 2 people in case something happens.  These are the people you will go over everything in the binder so they understand what someone will need to take care of.

The personal information sheet is really important this information will be used for a death certificate and for insurance.  Your spouse’s information and children’s information is all listed.  If you have others that you take care of, similar to my sister-in-law, so someone can be appointed to help with this.

They have included a section of professional people who need to be contacted.  Another section for all of your doctor’s information.  Next you will see the medical history paperwork so that if needed it is there and up to date.  Then you have the insurance section for each type of insurance you have.

You will next be in the security and access information.  This is passwords for different tech items and then passwords for sites that someone will need to take care of your bills, checking, saving etc.  Also lists for social media and email accounts.

Next you will list income and cash equivalents.  Phone numbers for pensions, 401k, etc. Also any loans someone owes you.  A real estate section for any and all property owned.  You also have a list for storage units, safes, vehicles, art, jewelry, etc.

Next you will list any retirement or investment accounts.  Pension and social security, stock option and deferred compensation plans, investments, stocks and bonds, savings bond and annuities, and any other accounts.

You will then list your loans, mortgage, or any other money owed.  After that is any business you may own or partially own.  Any paperwork to do with the business and where it is kept..

The next section is really important but it is something most people never write down.  The documents originals and where they are kept.  Such as birth certificate, marriage license etc.

You will then list your animals and who should get them.  The vet information and any meds they need.

Next is the estate planning documents, listing the will and where it is kept.  The final sections is where your funeral arrangements go.  Anything that may be prepaid and type of services you would like.

As you can see they cover lots of things that will make it easier for the people left behind.  I feel that everyone should buy this and make it a lot easier on everyone.

 
Thanks for stopping by,
Laura

 

 

Gravity Maze™ Review

Gravity Maze™ Review

Gravity Maze is a new game by Think Fun.  This game is just like Lazer maze.  It is a logic puzzle that you have to use visual perception and reasoning skills.  This game is for 8+ years old.  There are 60 different challenges for you to find the one solution to.

My granddaughters both loved the game.  They could not wait to play it.  They play it every day now.

sept review pics 2 005

sept review pics 2 003

This is a great game for kids to play by themselves. So if one is bored and the other one is gone, they can turn to this game.

You take a card then you set up the blocks like the card shows. After this is set up, the same card in the corner will show you how many and which blocks you need to complete the puzzle. You have to figure out how the silver marble can get to the end by just adding the blocks they tell you to.  The back of the card has the solution.  There are 4 levels for you to choose from.

The red block is the end. I think puzzle of all kinds are good for kids. Helps them to start thinking and problem solving.
Gravity Maze by Think Fun is lots of fun and the kids gave it a thumbs up!

How to Determine Which Shade of Red Hair Color is Best for You

How to Determine Which Shade of Red Hair Color is Best for You
Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.

Fall is a perfect time to try some red hues. If you’ve ever fantasized about being a redhead, here are some basic tips to help you find your perfect shade.

Red Hair for Fall

First, decide if your skin has warm or cool undertones. Hold a piece of white paper up to your face:

  • If your skin coloring appears to be pink, you’re cool.
  • If it appears yellow or olive, you’re warm.

You can also look to the color of your eyes:

  • If you have brown eyes, warmer colors will compliment you more. Choose golden and coppery red shades.
  • If your eyes are light, like blue or green, choose a cooler red with mahogany or deep chestnut undertones.

Fair skin: A light strawberry blonde is beautiful.  Avoid mahogany tones that pale your already fair skin.

Medium skin: You can handle a deeper red, because there is more tone in your skin.  A medium coppery light brown or auburn shade would be gorgeous. Avoid wine shades that bring out yellow in the skin.

Dark skin: Go with a dark auburn to a mahogany red or a rich, chestnut brown. Avoid intense shades of red, as they can bring out subtle green undertones in dark skin.

A few things to consider when going red:

  • Watch out when coloring over existing color. It could effect the tone and depth of the red you desire. Do a strand test before coloring all over.
  • Add a gloss between colorings to keep your red vibrant. You can choose a clear gloss or a tinted one that will wake up and extend your color.
  • Red color tends to fade more quickly, so it’s essential that you use a shampoo and conditioner formulated for color treated hair, such as Madison Reed’s Madison Reed nourishing, color enhancing shampoo and conditioner set, to protect and extend your color.

Right now get 50% off your first purchase at Madison-Reed.com with the code FALLHAIRCOLOR.

Framesi Color Lover Shampoo and Conditioner Giveaway

091714

 

If you color your hair and it fades or washes away a little to quick, you’re tired of recoloring your hair to soon, try out the Framesi.  Framesi Volume Boost shampoo and condition is a color lover and it helps your dye to last 95% longer.  This also works great for highlights and other types of things that color the hair.

Framesi actually softens the hair and the shine after use is out of this world.  I have highlights in my hair as well as red streaks.  This has made it shine, so soft to the touch and also really thick.  It became almost to thick to even get a brush through.  It is very gentle on the hair and scalp.  That is one of the main things I enjoy while using this.

This is made of all-natural plant proteins.  That makes it well worth checking it out and trying it.  I love anything that is organic, natural or pure eco-friendly!  It is also 100% Vegan, sulfate free, Paraben free, gluten free, DEA free, sodium chloride free, has a thermal (UV/sun) protection and it will NOT build up on your hair.  This has to be two thumbs up all the way.

Madison Reed has awesome hair color check out their site. Madison Reed – easy-to-apply hair color delivered to your door on your schedule.
