Stop losing items to the back depths of your refrigerator!  The Ikea Snurrad storage turntable is made from clear plastic and measures 16 ½” wide x 11” deep x 1.75” deep.  It is easy fasten to the shelf with suction cups. It pulls out and revolves 360° so you won’t forget the items at the back of your fridge.  The raised edges keep items from falling off.   $35.99.

 

First let me say that sharks do not intend to attack humans and humans are not part of a shark’s diet.  Shark bites are extremely rare.  There were only 57 unprovoked bites last year in the U.S.  To stay safe, experts say not to wear or carry shiny objects into the water, do not swim at dawn or dusk when sharks cannot see you well and might mistake you for a seal, which IS on their diet.

That being said, if you are curious, or still fearful, there is an app that provides information on White Shark sightings, detections, movements, and research to help people co-exist with sharks peacefully.  Use the app to view sightings or submit your own. The app is free.

Tea Forte, a tea company we have recommended previously for their hot teas, have a new collection this summer – Cold Brew.  Made from organic herbal botanicals, this collection has three blends.  Elderflower Rose, Pomegranate Vanilla, and Watermelon Mint.  The Cold Brew blends are formulated to brew in cold water.  They offer a video on their Cold Brew page to show you how to brew, but it looks simple to me.  There are 15 tea sachets in each box.  On sale for $12.00 per box, or one box in each of the three flavors on sale for $34.00.

 

I’ve rediscovered oranges.  They are delicious and very good for you.  One orange contains more than 100% of the daily recommended daily dose of vitamin C.  What that does for you is:

  • Protects your cells from damage.
  • Helps your body make collagen, a protein that gives you smoother skin and helps heal wounds.
  • Boosts your immune system.
  • Slows age-related macular degeneration that can cause blindness as you age.
