Ultrasonic Dog Trainer by Modus



I've always been against shock collars, I think they're  inhumane and you can't convince me otherwise. I have friends who use them and they work great but I would rather deal with a little disobedience than shock my dog.  Plus, there are many other training tools out there that work just as well like the Ultrasonic Dog Trainer by Modus.
The Ultrasonic Dog Trainer works by using an ultrasonic tone that humans can't hear but dogs can and it help to deter barking and other unwanted behavior.  But does it work?  Yes, it definitely works!  However, barking is how dogs communicate so this is not a tool that should be used every time your dog barks.  For instance, our female Pit Bull, Karley will bark continuously when we have guests over because she wants to be the center of attention and wants everyone to pet her and love on her.  As soon as someone stops petting her or giving her love she starts barking.  While it might be cute on some occasions it can be really annoying when you are trying to carry on a conversation.  
Ultrasonic Dog Trainer to the rescue!  Karley hates the Ultrasonic Dog Trainer!  We've really only had to use it a few times because now if she even sees it she will stop barking.  It's a great tool for her and has really helped curb her barking when we have guests over.  However, it doesn't work as well on our male Chocolate Lab, Kramer.  Kramer doesn't react to it the way that Karley does.  He will eventually stop barking but not as quick as Karley.  So, I think it just depends on how sensitive your dog is to sounds.  I think it's definitely worth a try if you are looking to change some of your dogs behavior.  Plus, it's a much better option than a shock collar!
Obviously, it won't work if your dog has hearing problems and it should never be used on dogs under 6 months old.


You can find the Ultrasonic Dog Trainer by Modus on Amazon.com...

Fill Your Medicine Cabinet With These Essential Oils!


We've all become accustom to reaching for a Advil or Aleve when we have a headache or any other ache or pain.  Unfortunately, all those types of medications come with a long list of side effects like stomach pain, constipation, diarrhea, bloating, gas, heartburn, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, headache, labored breathing, nervousness, skin itching or rash, bruising, swelling, blurred vision or ringing in the ears...just to name a few.  It's crazy to think that those types of medications can actually cause what you are trying to treat!
Don't get me wrong, I suffer from Migraines and so far there is no amount of any Essential Oil that can cure my Migraines but using some Lavender and Peppermint Essential Oil can help take the edge off.
By using Essential Oils to treat what ails you also get all the other benefits of using the Essential Oil.  For example, if you choose Peppermint Oil for your headache you will also feel a boost in your energy level or if you choose Clary Sage for menstrual cramps you'll also enjoy a good night's sleep.  It's literally a win, win!


All Essential Oils are not created equal which is why I chose to become a doTERRA® Wellness Advocate.  I've tried dozens and dozens of different Essential Oil brands and I just came to the conclusion that doTERRA® oils are just the best out there.  With doTERRA® Essential Oils I can rely on the fact that they are Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® (CPTG) and that they are pure and free of contaminants.  The more pure the Essential Oil the more potent which equals more powerful results!
The other wonderful thing about doTERRA® is that they practice Co-Impact Sourcing®.  Co-Impact Sourcing® is the process of sourcing which is intended to provide powerful essential oils as well as create an industry that uplifts and instills hope in farming communities around the world.  In other words doTERRA® oils are ethically sourced and that is just as important and the purity of the oils!
Good quality Essential Oils are an investment.  However, try to keep in mind that you are literally using drops at a time. A 15ml (standard size) bottle of Essential Oil can last months or even longer.  I like to consider my Essential Oil purchases to be an investment in my overall health.  Looking at it that way makes my purchases easier to make!
If you're new to the world of Essential Oils then I recommend starting out with Lavender Oil.  I use it everyday.  It's in my diffuser by my bed, I apply it to my temples when I have a headache (which is almost everyday) and I put it on my wool dryer balls to naturally scent our laundry, among other things!  A 15ml bottle retails for $28.00 but it's potent so a little goes a very long way.  You may think your getting a great deal when your buying that 4oz. bottle of Lavender Essential Oil for $19.99 on Amazon but you will need to use twice as much or more to get the same effects as one drop of the doTERRA® Lavender Oil.  Trust me, I use to be the one buying that 4oz. bottle of Lavender Oil on Amazon!
2019 is a new year and a great time to start a health overhaul from meds to Essential Oils!  Please comment below if you have any questions about any of the Essential Oils I mentioned above or even one that I didn't.  As your doTERRA® Essential Oils Wellness Advocate I am at your service!

Exciting News!! ~ I am now a doTERRA Essential Oils Wellness Advocate!



I'm excited to announce that I am now a doTERRA Wellness Advocate!
Essential Oils have been something that I've become more and more passionate about over the years and is the reason why I decided that 2019 was going to be the year that I take that passion to the next level. 
While I'm still very passionate about beauty and skincare I have also become as equally passionate about Essential Oils. I have found the world of Essential Oils to be life changing and I've decided it's a world that I think more people should know about.
All Essential Oils are not created equal and after doing my research and testing out a multitude of different brands I knew I had to become a Wellness Advocate for doTERRA.  Combining my love of Essential Oils and my admiration of doTERRA as a company made becoming a doTERRA Wellness Advocate an easy decision. What sets doTERRA Oils apart from other Essential Oils is the quality of their oils and their commitment to ethically sourcing those oils.
My goal as a doTERRA Wellness Advocate is to make everyone as equally excited about Essential Oils and to educate them that there is no need for those harsh chemicals in our lives!
I'm excited to expand my Essential Oils knowledge base, implement new and original ways to use Essential Oils and to share all that wisdom with you, after all, Essential Oils are not just for diffusing!


Stay tuned to GlamRiver for blog posts full of ideas on how to use Essential Oils in your everyday life and tips on on how to get you and your family to make the transition from those harsh chemicals to Essential Oils!  For Essential Oils 101, DIY's and Essential Oil Recipes and to order your own Essential Oils you can visit my doTERRA website at my.doTERRA.com/GlamRiverOils!

As a beauty blogger it has become more important than ever for me to seek out and use skincare and makeup products that are natural and contain ingredients that are truly good for my skin.  I discovered Jadience Herbal Formulas about a year ago when they sent me their Purifying Toner and I fell in love with it  What sets Jadience Herbal Formulas apart from other skincare is the fact that they infuse their products with actual Jade powder.  Jade is known for it's healing properties and it's ability to enhance skin health.  So, it only makes sense that skincare products containing Jade are going to beneficial to your skin.
Recently, I've been testing out their Vitality Anti-Aging Serum, Harmonizing Mask & Intensive Eye Treatment and once again, I've fallen in love!  Their Vitality Anti-Aging Serum is lightweight, absorbs quickly, leaves skin feeling hydrated, soft and smooth while helping to reduce signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles.  The Harmonizing Mask is a mask that deep cleans and purifies pores but also leaves skin feeling balanced and nourished.  It gently removes dead skin cells and other debris so skin becomes softer and smoother. Skin looks and feels refreshed and rejuvenated!
The Intensive Eye Treatment provides instant hydration, reduces dark circles and puffiness while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  It's basically everything you want and need in an anti-aging eye product!

Pink Grapefruit Essential Oil by Gya Labs



Pink Grapefruit Essential Oil is one of my favorite oils and is one that I consider a staple for any Essential Oil arsenal.  It's a favorite because there are so many uses for it!  
I keep a bottle on my desk for those times when I'm feeling a little stressed and need a little pick me up, I just inhale or massage a couple drops onto my wrists and I almost instantly feel better.  I also use Pink Grapefruit Essential Oil to help fight off sugar cravings.  I just add a few drops to my water when I feel a craving coming on and it defintely helps ease those thoughts of sugary sweets that are running through my head!

Here are just a few other ways I use my Pink Grapefruit Essential Oil by Gya Labs:
1) Mix a few drops into Coconut Oil and massage into the back of the neck and shoulders to help relieve stress.
2) Mix a few drops with Jojoba Oil and use to treat blemishes.
3) Diffuse in home or office to eliminate unwanted odors.
4) Make your own household cleaner!  It works as a natural antibacterial agent and it smells good!  Just put several drops in a spray bottle with some water and voilĂ  you have a custom made cleaner!
5) Helps ease the symptoms of a hangover.

There are many other ways to use Pink Grapefruit Essential Oil, probably some that I haven't even thought of!  As with any Essential Oil it's extremely important to make sure you use a good quality Essential Oil, especially if you intend to ingest it!  I can always count on Gya Labs for their excellent quality Essential Oils! 

Favorite Essential Oils of the moment!  Check out my Instagram to see what I use them for!

Liquid Vitamin B-12 by New Bloom



Did you know it's estimated that almost 40% of the general population suffers from a Vitamin B-12 deficiency?  Chances are, if your reading this and you suffer from lack of focus, mood changes, low energy or fatigue that you are probably part of that 40%!  Vitamin B-12 deficiencies can also effect your heart, hormones, immune system, skin, hair, digestion and more.  Also, a great benefit of B-12 is that it can help prevent cancer!  Needless to say, Vitamin B-12 is extremely important in maintaining a healthy body and mind.
I have found that the most efficient way to take Vitamin B-12 is in liquid form.  Taking a vitamin or supplement in liquid tends to make for better absorption and it also helps to ensure that you are getting the correct dosage. 
I've been taking the Liquid Vitamin B-12 by New Bloom for the last several weeks and the most significant change has been with my energy levels and fatigue.  Unfortunately, I don't get a lot of sleep and so I constantly feel tired and run down.  Since taking the Liquid Vitamin B-12 by New Bloom I have increased energy and I don't feel as lethargic, even with the same amount of sleep.  I also just feel better overall.  I know I too was part of that 40%...and now I'm not!
The Liquid Vitamin B-12 by New Bloom has a natural Raspberry flavor which means it tastes good and it's made with the purest and most bioavailable form of B12.  There are no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives and it's made in the USA.  I like to take my dosage of 1ml under my tongue first thing in the morning.  It's a great way to start the day!
With the cold and flu season upon us it's the perfect time to start taking advantage of all the benefits of B-12.  Try it out for yourself, I definitely think you will see and feel the benefits and the difference!

Keto BHBc Max by Zen Naturally



Whether you are on the Keto diet or just trying to increase metabolism and decrease appetite this is a supplement worth checking out!  I've been testing out the all natural Keto BHBc Max by Zen Naturally for about a month now and I definitely notice a difference when I'm not taking it.  When I take this supplement as directed, which is about 20-30 minutes before a meal, I find that I don't end up eating as much and I have better energy levels.
I can't say that it "burns fat" but I love that it helps curb my appetite and that I have a ton more energy.  I also like that the Keto BHBc Max by Zen Naturally comes with hassle free refund if it doesn't work!  If you are on a Keto diet then I would say this is a must have supplement!  Or, if you are just looking for something to help curb your appetite so that you can loose a few pounds then I would recommend trying it out for yourself!

You can find Keto BHBc Max by Zen Naturally over on Amazon.com...
