Monster Madness: Vampires

Monster Madness: Vampires

Vampires have went from the Horror to Romance section in the past few years. Vampires used to be something that gave people the Heebie Jeebies, and now they are posters on our bedroom wall. 

Bram Stoker’s, Dracula. Anne Rice’s, Lestat. Joss Whedon’s, Angel. Stephenie Meyer’s, Edward Cullen. 
I joined the vampire craze when I was fairly young, thanks to the quirky, fashion forward, Vampire Slayer we all know as Buffy. Buffy blurred the lines between Horror, Comedy, and Drama. I would almost say that she was the first of many strong female characters in pop culture. 

Around the same time that Buffy came into our lives, Blade appeared on the big screen. Half Human, Half Vampire. Many knew him from the Marvel comics, but people like myself became fans while watching him and Stephen Dorff battle each other on screen. 

Now, Vampires are around every corner we turn, figuratively speaking. The Winchester’s hunt them, The Salvatore’s are them. With and without souls. Vegetarian sparkling vampires, and vampires who are soulless, evil things. 

Where exactly did all of these myths start? Do they really exist? Or is these creatures, that we all hold so near and dear, made up by media for our viewing pleasure? I dug a little deeper just to satisfy my curiosity. 

There are many different tales of the “Origin of the Vampire”, but this seems to be the most common. 

Porphryia. Many of you have probably not heard of that word, but it is widely considered "The Vampire Disease". Porphryia is a very rare disease, which causes irregularities in the product of heme, which is an Iron-rich Pigment found in blood. People who suffer from the severe form of this disease suffer from sensitivity to sunlight, experience stomach aches, and suffer from severe confusion. Long Ago, one of the ways to treat Porphyria would possibly have been to drink blood, though that has not been proven. 
Porphyria is hereditary, so it would be common for towns to be scared of these "Vampires"  as it would be show up more often in certain areas as families intermarried. 

Though some people actually believe in Supernatural beings, do you? Do you wonder if your very own Elena Gilbert or Edward Cullen is out there? Or do you think that the myth of Vampires is just that? A Myth. 

I think that there are such things as vampires, but not your modern day bloodsuckers. I like to refer to the as Energy Vampires. Have you ever met a person who walks into a room and sucks the life right out of it? I have. Those are the vampires that I believe in. As far as the blood drinking, sparkling, bursting into dust kind of vampires? No way. I think Porphryia is the closest the world will ever see to vampires. What do you think?

Review & Giveaway: Splash Cards

Disclaimer: I received these items in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to post a positive review. These are my honest opinions. Your experience may differ.

Gathering around a table and playing cards. It's one of my favorite past times that I enjoy with my family. But Now, with Splash cards from Winning Moves Games, we could lounge in the pool and play our favorite card games.
I received two different types of Splash Cards to review, Splash Jack Royal and Splash Pals. I opened the Splash Pals first, and played around with them. I watch a disabled adult 3 days per week and we played around with these for a while, creating different people, matching colors and numbers. These Splash Pals definitely can be made into more than one game. Each Card has either a head, torso or legs on it, as well as a different colored background and a number. You can make different characters, sort by body part, or even play a matching game with numbers.

Splash Jack Royal is exactly what the packaging looks like! Imagine all of your friends lounging around the pool playing a friendly game of go fish, or Poker, if you are into that kind of thing. I can safely sit next to the pool and hang out with friends and family playing cards without having to worry about someone splashing and getting the cards soaked.

Now the best part about these cards... They can be disinfected. I think Splash Pals would be the perfect inclusion to a classroom or even a youngsters room, because if they get dirty, or after multiple uses, you can disinfect them! Bye Bye Germs!

I really loved these two games from Winning Moves Games!

Review: Surpahs Lightweight BMI Bathroom Scale

Disclaimer: I received these items in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to post a positive review. These are my honest opinions. Your experience may differ.

 I have reviewed a few bathrooms scales, but I think this one is one of my favorites. I love that this is so little and not bulky at all. I think The simplistic design is what makes this so unique.

One thing I never liked about scales (Except the number that they tell me, HAHA) is that I never had a place for them! This scale is probably half of the size and thickness of others that I have owned. I also love that it has rounded edges.

The bright display makes it very easy to see the numbers. I prefer the white numbers over the usual black numbers It makes the numbers pop out and they are much easier to read.

This can be programmed for multiple users, which is another thing I really like.

One of the things that sets this scale apart is that it also tells you your BMI, which, in my opinion is more important than your weight.
Two color selection: White and Pink
Auto identify up to 4 pre-set users, provides accurate body weight measurement and Body Mass Index (BMI) on 2.3" (59mm) diameter big round shiny LCD screen, with very nice blue backlight, easy reading in the dark.
11" x 9.6" x 0.9" small, sleek, lovely design with 0.2" (6mm) thickness more pure & higher tempered glass weighing platform.
Smart gravity point detect and auto-calibrate. The G-Sensor patent-pending technology embded in 4 TPU skidproof stands support more stable and accurate measurement from 11 lb to 330 lb.
New "Sense-ON" patent-pending technology gets instant readings when you step on the scale.
This scale is one that I will keep out in the open in my bathroom instead of having to hide it under the sink because of how big and bulky it is. I have the perfect place for it!

I absolutely fell in love with this product from the first use. I loved all of the different options. With 4 different heads, you can use this all over your body: rough elbows, callused feet,, and even on your face. I love how unbelievably clean and smooth the skin on my face is after using this. It gently removes dirt and oil without being too abrasive.
