Amope - Beautiful healthy summer-ready feet! Coupon!  Ann Again and again Reviews


While I’ve been cleansing and moisturizing, trying to achieve that smooth, summer time bare foot feel it seems to be more of a bother this season for some reason.  I decided to give Amopé Pedi Perfect a try and I’m very pleased with the results. Easy, quick, smooth results.  Just the right tool for summer smooth feet! Right now CVS has a great coupon so that you too can try Amopé Pedi Perfect for $21.99. (That’s a $15.00 savings!)

The features of Amopé Pedi Perfect

  • Smooths feet quickly and easily
  • Ergonomically shaped head for easy & fast hard skin removal from even the curviest contours of your feet
  • Replaceable roller heads available for every need—coarse for regular skin, extra coarse for hard, callused skin & soft touch for a smooth finish.

Do not use Amopé Pedi Perfect in or near water.  This tool is meant to be used on dry skin.  I have sensitive skin and found that there was no pain, no irritation, just smooth feet ready for a foot massage.

Finding a New Home in a New City

When you need to find a new home in a new city; trying to figure out where to start can be a daunting task. The good news is this handy list breaks the process down into easy, doable steps.

Start researching as early as possible.

Even if you’re only thinking about moving, the sooner you start researching, the better. A good place to start is familiarizing you with the housing market. For instance, if you’re moving to Seattle you can do an internet search for downtown Seattle condos for sale to get a sense of what homes in various neighborhoods are selling for.

Choose a location.

Once you get an idea of what homes in particular areas cost, you can begin narrowing down your choices. You can start with budget but also consider proximity to work and/or school as well as to any other amenities that may be important to you such as shopping, entertainment, or even medical facilities. As your list of potential neighborhoods gets narrowed down, do a little deeper digging and search for online neighborhood guides that can give you the inside scoop on a particular community.

Get social.

There are two major ways tapping into your social network can help you find a new home. First, friends — or even friends of friends — who live in the area can give you an insider’s perspective on what specific neighborhoods are really like. Second, your social network is a great place to start getting recommendations for real estate agents in your new city.

Contact real estate agents.

No one will know the local real estate market like a local agent. Speak with several realtors and choose the one who best understands both your needs and the market you want to live in.

These steps will help ensure you find a home in an area you’ll love.

With Johnsonville Kabobs Summer Meals Are Tastier & Easier

Johnsonville Sweet Chili & Lime Chicken w/ Cayenne Mangos and sauteed peppers


When the summer time rolls around, our house grows in size.  How?  We’re away from the Pacific Northwest rainy season and can head out to the backyard to enjoy the sunshine and shade!  Our kitchen takes a bit of a break and our grill comes out from under it’s “rain coat”.  It’s grilling season!  Johnsonville has expanded from their sausage line to include delicious, marinaded chicken kabob’s that are gluten-free and all natural.  Just heat up the grill and cook! With Johnsonville Kabobs our summer meals are tastier and easier.  (It’s Summer time… the livin’ is supposed to be easy, right? wink).  Check out my recipe below.

johnsonville chili


Johnsonville Kabobs come in 4 varieties;  Lemon & Herb, Teriyaki, Sweet BBQ and Sweet Chili and Lime. Made with all-natural chicken breast, these kabobs are a smart choice for a healthy, flavorful meal. I’ve chosen to the go with the Sweet Chili and Lime Chicken for my first Johnsonville outing.  Here’s my recipe for Johnsonville Sweet Chili and Lime Chicken w/ Cayenne Mangoes and Sauteed Bell Peppers.

Ann Again and again Reviews Johnsonville Kabobs Recipe - Sweet Chili Lime Chicken w/ Cayenne Mangos and Sauteed Bell Peppers


Give this a try and let me know what you think.  What Johnsonville Kabob flavor interests you?  I think I’ll try the Lemon & Chicken next.  Ooohh, that would be so good in a wrap!  Let’s see – I’ll add chopped basil, quinoa and diced tomatoes!  Perhaps a lemon aioli dipping sauce on the side!  (To make your own aioli – mix garlic and salt in a food processor or in a blender very briefly. Add egg yolk and lemon juice until blended. Begin adding the olive oil (pure olive oil first, then extra-virgin) in a thin stream. If it becomes too thick, thin it out with some room-temperature water and continue adding oil until you’ve used it all. Finish with pepper and sea salt to taste.)

Alright, if I wasn’t hungry before, I sure am now!  Happy grilling!
