How to Get Your Facebook Updates

How to Get Your Facebook Updates

If you use Facebook, you have probably noticed that you’re only seeing a fraction of the updates from pages you subscribe to. This is one of those things that has kind of been frustrating for us bloggers. We take the time to post deals and then post them on our Facebook pages, only for you to not see them. In addition, many of the deals that I post are very time sensitive, meaning that if you don’t see it within a few minutes (sometimes seconds) of me posting it, the free sample may be gone or the hot deal may be over, which can be frustrating for you.

I have a couple of quick fixes for you that hopefully will help you keep up with Facebook updates in general and hopefully with my page too.

How to Get Your Facebook Updates

Option 1: Get notifications. You know, on Facebook, when the little world on the top lights up red? That would be a notification. That is the fastest way to get notified when I (or another page) post something.

How to Get Your Facebook Updates

To set this up you will need to visit my Facebook page. Hover over “liked” and then choose “Get Notifcations”.

Option 2: On my Facebook page, hover over “liked”, then choose “Show in News Feed”.

How to Get Your Facebook Updates

Next, go to “Settings” and then choose “All updates”. You should then see all of my posts on your wall, theoretically.

I have been using option 1 for a while and it’s been working well for me. So if you are following on Facebook, please give these a try and let me know how it’s working for you. I’d like to get your feedback. Thanks!

The Trouble with Facebook & How to Organize into Lists

With the recent timeline changes in Facebook you may have noticed that you are not being shown all of the updates in our feed. If this is true for you, I just wanted to give you a quick tip to help you get your feeds so that you can see all of the updates from your family, friends and favorite blogs.

The easiest way to organize your Facebook feeds is to sort them into lists. Let me walk you through a quick setup because it’s easier to show you than to just tell you how.

1: On your Facebook Sidebar there will be a section titled “Interests”. If you don’t see it, you will need to click on the “more” button on your sidebar.

2: Once you have that on your screen you will need to click on “Add Interests”.

3: Click on “Create List”

4: Scroll down the list or search for the blog or person you want to see updates from and click on the thumbnail photo. A check mark will come up when they are selected. Do this with as many people/blogs as you wish, then hit next.

5: Give your list a name and click “done”.

6: Now go back to your sidebar and click on the list you have just made. You should now be getting all of your updates from your favorite people/pages.

7: If you missed someone that you want to add to your list at a later time, simply click on their page and add just as the pic above shows.

éclos Anti-Aging Skin Care Review & Giveaway #EclosBeauty

This post brought to you by éclos Skin Care. All opinions are 100% mine.

It’s starting to happen. When I look in the mirror I am beginning to see signs of aging around my eyes. I thought it couldn’t happen to me, but is. The changes are very slight for now, but I know that getting older is inevitable. If I can slow down the aging process though and even reverse it, I will surely try. When I was offered a chance to try éclos Anti-Aging Skin Care for review, I thought, Sure, why not? Bring it on. Make me look younger éclos Skin Care!

Why éclos products are different: éclos products feature Apple Stem Cells extracted from a rare Swiss apple which have shown tremendous ability to stimulate skin stem cells, encouraging aging skin to behave like younger skin. Plant extracts, vitamins and anti-oxidants combine with the Apple Stem Cell technology to help minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and tired skin. Similar products were once only available from specialty brands at department stores with a high price tag to match. éclos is the first brand to bring this active ingredient to mainstream stores at a fraction of the cost- making beautiful and younger skin available to women everywhere.

I received a sample kit from éclos which included the following items:

Facial Cleanser Skin Prep – This lifts away makeup and daily debris and helps balance the skin’s pH level. It also primes for the rest of the treatment.

Cellular Activator Face Serum - This serum helps to regenerate skin cells and helps them resist further damage, which helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Moisture Therapy Regenerative Cream – This helps tighten sagging skin and postpones wrinkles. Yes! It also brightens dull skin and reduces lines and wrinkles.

Restorative Eye Cream – This helps slow the signs of aging and reduces fine lines in the eye area. It also firms delicate skin.

Instant Radiance Facial Scrub – This is a gentle microderm abrasion scrub. It helps to remove dull, dry skin cells and improves texture and tones of your skin.

Skin Renewal Clay Mask – This helps detox the skin. It works by absorbing dirt and impurities and tightens and reduces pores.

éclos Terry Cloth Head Band

After using these products for a couple of weeks, I can’t say that I see a huge difference, but I believe that is because I haven’t been using it for very long, but I can tell you that there is a difference in the way my skin feels. It feels soft and clean. While I love all of these products, if I had to choose only one, I would pick the facial scrub because it goes on warm and I can feel it working. Another bonus: All of the products smell great, which is another important factor for me. If it doesn’t smell good, I don’t want to put it on my face. You know? Overall I have been happy with these products and will continue to use them.

Happy Easter. He is Risen!!!

I posted this last year at Easter, but really, it’s still true today, so I thought I’d share it again.

I don’t do posts like this often, but I want to take a moment to share the reasons I am so happy to celebrate Easter today.  I’m sure you know the main idea of the story. Jesus paid the ultimate price for us. He died for me and you on the cross so that we “should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). But the best part of the story is this…. He is Risen! And get this, not only is he risen from the dead, but he is coming back again soon!

Mark 16
   1 And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.
2 And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.
3 And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre?
4 And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.
5 And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted.
6 And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.

John 14 (Jesus Speaking)
1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

I’m ready for Jesus to return! Who is with me????

Luke 21

9 But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.
10 Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:

   11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

    25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
26 Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.

   27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

Enjoy the day. Jesus loves you.
