Get Social On AKC.org and Giveaway!

by Pennie on June 28, 2015

akclogo

www.AKC.org has undergone some major renovations in 2015. You may not have noticed all the innovative changes we’ve taken to bring you a better digital experience.

We’d like you to explore the newest social compatibilities AKC.org has to offer, like our Breed Selector and You vs. Breed features. These added components allow you to dive deeper to get a better understanding of what breed fits best for your lifestyle as well as what breed you most closely relate to based on what our algorithm deduces from your social media habits. Here’s a further break down of both experiences:

Breed Selector: Thinking about getting a dog but not sure which breed is the best fit for your lifestyle? AKC.org’s Breed Selector helps you get a jump start on your research with a simple, interactive questionnaire. The simple questionnaire asks questions like your location, living situation, household habits, etc. and, based on your answers, provides 5 breeds that fit well within your current lifestyle for you to learn about, as well as similar breeds.

Going through the breed selector was pretty interesting because plugged in my current conditions and got recommendations for breeds that I don’t currently have!  Does that mean that I am doing a disservice to my furry friends?  Do I have the wrong breeds for my current living conditions?  

I felt much better after I realized that you can compare breed types!  I plugged in the recommended breeds for my current conditions and then compared those dogs to the breeds I have now.  It turns out that my furry babies have very similar qualities to the recommended breeds!

You vs. Breed: Ever wonder what your animal spirit would be? Now you can know if you’re more of a laidback bulldog or a playful retriever with AKC’s You vs. Breed. The feature allows you to pick a breed of your choice and, based on your social media habits, find out how similar you are to that breed. Our algorithm evaluates energy, cleanliness, sociability, independence, playfulness, and more.

You vs Breed was entertaining!  The app somehow assesses your qualities based on my Facebook (in my case) info to see how you stack up against the breed you select!  Are you more like a collie or a terrier?  Try and see what you discover!

We encourage you to try the new AKC social experience. Start by going through our Breed Selector questionnaire and share your breed results. Were you surprised? Do you currently own one of those breeds? What’s your feedback? Next, try our You vs. Breed feature and share if you agree or disagree with the results and which breed you compared yourself to. Leave a comments with your results for a chance to win a $100 Amazon Gift Card.

Enter the Giveaway by leaving a comment here discussing the results of your social experience on the 2 new AKC features!  Enter once per person.  Winner of Amazon $100 GiftCard will be chosen by random selection.

Nicole is an AKC ambassador and has received compensation for her participation.  All opinions are our own.

all® introduces all®Radiant, a new liquid detergent designed to restore whites and protect colors over time at 30% less cost than the leading brand.  The result is clothing with a new lease on life, transforming dull hand-me-downs into beautiful and bright pass-me-ons!

 

Clothes take a beating and after excessive laundering, whites can look dingy and colors begin to fade. It’s an issue that is at the top of the list of common consumer laundry problems and frustrations.  New all® Radiant helps protect colors and makes dingy whites look whiter.

This is especially helpful when it comes to the idea of hand me downs. We have fond memories for clothes we love and don’t want to give them up and often share them with friends and family. But if the clothe are dull, dingy and faded they tend to get thrown out or put in a corner. Radiant keeps everyone in the family happy by helping to “pass along” out-grown clothing from older to younger siblings.

all® Radiant is now available in the laundry aisle at retail outlets nationwide, in sizes ranging from 46.5oz-141 oz for suggested retail prices from $4.25 to $8.50.

Nicole’s take:  I am a huge fan of all detergent and was excited to try the radiant line! Jamie wears the same clothes for work over and over and I wear the same clothes because I’m a busy mom of triplets with nowhere to go! So our clothes have been suffering until all radiant! I love the light scent and it left our clothes looking bright!

Mustard_Girl_Logo

Mustard Girl All American Mustards™—an artisanal brand produced in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin—is making its debut in leading grocery retailers from national box stores to the local grocer and neighborhood deli’s. One hundred percent U.S.-made, each mustard variety is a product created from the original recipe, which was originally crafted by hand in small batches on a farm in rural Wisconsin but this exciting new mustard might never have made it to the shelves without Jennifer Connor, the brand’s founder. She really could not imagine a world without these delicious mustards and her determination to bring them to market without knowledge of the consumer packaged goods industry and in a highly competitive category where few new brands survive is a truly an inspirational story.

honeymustard

Mustard Girl All American Mustards began with Sweet N’ Spicey Honey Mustard and has since grown to a full portfolio of flavors that includes Stoneground Deli (spicy brown), Sweet N’ Fancy Yellow, American Dijon and Zesty Horseradish. All varieties are all-natural, contain no preservatives, are gluten-free, fat-free, low in sodium, Kosher, and contain no high fructose corn syrup.

With fresh, bold flavors, one taste is enough to realize this is not your typical bottled mustard. Each bottle of Mustard Girl All American Mustards features an illustration of a smiling blond country girl—and she really does exist. Jennifer Connor is the Mustard Girl, and her story reflects a commitment to delivering a premium product regardless of the challenges she faced in the industry.

Mustard Girl All American Mustards have a suggested retail price of $3.29 per 12-ounce bottle. For more information , visit http://www.mustardgirl.com/. To find a retailer near you, go to http://www.mustardgirl.com/find.

Nicole’s take:  I have always been a mustard fan and love flavors and spicy mustards.  My favorite snack is a cracker with mustard and a piece of thick salami.  Yum.  So I was so excited when the folks at Mustard Girl reached out to me to try their mustards! I couldn’t wait to get them and try all of the varieties! I ad 2 favorites – the sweet n’spicey honey and the zesty horseradish.  Both were spicy but bearable and had great flavor.  I loved the sweet n’spicey with the salami and the horseradish with a piece of sharp cheese. Yum! The other flavors were great as well – full of flavor and taste!

WaterSavers Summer Tips and Giveaway!

by Pennie on June 13, 2015

WaterSavers2015

Summer cleaning isn’t just for your home – it’s a smart thing to do for your vehicles, too. A few simple steps can help boost your vehicle’s integrity and beauty while maintaining its value, plus you might even regain that new-car smell.

1. Your car is a reflection of who you are
There’s no question your car is a reflection on you. Whether it’s all about horsepower, efficient gas mileage or four-wheel drive, your vehicle represents who you are, where you’ve been and where you intend to go. The design, form and function are extensions of your style and personality. So, if you haven’t given it a wash in a while, what does that say about you? You wouldn’t walk out the door without a shower, a shave and a little spruce up. (Would you?) So why shouldn’t you show that same respect for your car? 

From dirt and dust to grit and grime, give that car its reflective shine at a WaterSavers car wash. WaterSavers professional car washes use an average of 40 gallons of fresh water or less per car, according to the International Carwash Association. As a frame of reference, that 10 minute shower you took used 25 gallons of fresh water. WaterSavers washes also recycle and filter the water to prevent harmful chemicals from entering groundwater supplies that feed rivers and streams. To find a WaterSavers car wash near you, visit Washwithwatersavers.com. 

2. Regular car washes protect your paint job
That beautiful factory paint job will dull and begin to chip away if you don’t maintain it. Regularly washing your car and waxing it will help keep your car looking as good as it did when you pulled out of the dealer lot.  

3. Professional car washes help maintain the value of the vehicle
You might be more inclined to spend money on engine issues than the car’s exterior, but stains and rusting can drastically decrease the value of the vehicle over time. Especially after a long winter, exposure to the elements can cause damage. Professional car washes thoroughly clean the undercarriage of your vehicle, where there may be a buildup of road salt that could cause corrosion to the car’s exhaust and muffler system.

For more information about the benefits of keeping your car clean visit www.WashWithWwaterSavers.com.  Also find and follow them on Twitter and Facebook.

Prize Pack Details:

WaterSavers has created a prize package to help you feel prepared for summer.

  • Auto kit with jumper cables, gloves, flash light, reflective cones and other must-have tools ($45 value)
  • Sun-shade for protecting your car from the blazing sun ($25 value)
  • $30 VISA Gift Card

WaterSavers Spring 2015 Prize Package

Nicole’s take:  Living in Florida we deal with the heat year round which can be very tough on cars! So I always make sure to keep my car well maintained and detailed! These tips are great!!

Outback Steakhouse® launched the new “Bold at Steak” brand campaign, centered on the bold flavors, sights and sounds that make Outback the steak authority. No stone was left unturned to demonstrate Outback’s steak leadership: the multi-media, multi-platform campaign includes a series of new commercials, in-restaurant steak training recertification for all Outback employees, a new menu design and fresh menu innovations, including the new Wood-Fire Grilled Flat Iron Steak, starting at just $13.99.

Flat Iron Steak WFG

In celebration of the new “Bold at Steak” brand campaign, Outback Steakhouse is launching a nationwide petition to make steak the first official food of the U.S. and urging fellow steak loving fans to rally behind the cause.

Filet Portabella 2015

While the French are synonymous with the baguette, Italians have a claim on pasta and Belgium has ownership over chocolate, America has yet to unveil an official national food!

While it may be one of the boldest moves yet, Outback is confident that consumers around the nation will join the movement. To show their bold love for steak, fans can sign the petition here: http://1.usa.gov/1J2J9Fb

Premium Sides 2015 (mac&broc&mash&fries&asp)

 

Nicole’s take: Outback has the best promotions and I am all for steak becoming the first official food of the US! Outback has some great new menu items and Jamie and I love to go there to eat! The whole experience from bread to salad to entree is a great one and their food is so fresh and delicious.  Make sure to sign the petition – make steak official!
