Personalabs: affordable online blood testing

This post was created in partnership with eAccountable. All opinions are my own.


Are you worried that you have allergies, but know that a doctor’s visit, testing and follow-up will be too costly and time consuming? Instead you suffer with the sniffling and sneezing, hoping that it's just a seasonal thing. Or maybe you're concerned about exposure to STDs, but want a discreet and less expensive way to get peace of mind. Perhaps, you're in need of a pregnancy test or a complete female health checkup. Maybe, you want to check on that fatigue, or the effect your stressful job has been having on your body.
Busy Americans are finding new ways to be frugal, but at the same time there is more emphasis than ever on preventive medicine. However, people also know that it can be costly to do all the testing necessary to properly diagnose health issues before they become serious problems.

The estimates that by 2030, the number of people with Diabetes (currently more than 180 million worldwide) will double to 366 million. Cancer incidence increased globally between 1990 and 2000 and is projected to increase further by 50%, to more than 15 million new cancer patients by 2025.
Traditional lab testing can be a very time consuming and costly process (source: It requires a visit to a doctor, the doctor ordering specific tests, patients then taking those orders to a lab facility to be completed, and then patients scheduling another follow-up visit with their doctor to get the lab results.

Personalabs provides consumers with an improved, alternative way to get those results, while saving money and time.

Personalabs management service allows patients to go their website (, find the test they are interested in (more than 300 tests available), place their order and Personalabs will send them a doctor's order within 60 seconds. Questions or concerns? No problem. There are Customer Care Specialists standing-by to help.

Personalabs has doctors registered in 50 states. You print the confirmation order and take that to one of the 1,700 lab facilities located nationwide. The lab takes your sample (whether it’s blood, urine, stool or semen) and you can leave knowing that you’ve completed your part and Personalabs has you covered the rest of the way! The lab tests your sample and within 24-48 hours (some tests are more extensive and may take up to 7-10 days), you will receive an e-mail advising that your results are ready. You then sign into our secure Personalabs Patient Portal to view your results.

Benefits of using Personalabs:
  • If you require discretion, Personalabs offers a 100% confidential service-Your results are sent to your private account, viewable only by you.
  • If you need results quickly-You can place your order using a computer, mobile device (iPad, tablet or cell phone) or by calling 1-888-438-5227 to place your order with one of our Customer Care Specialists. You can visit the lab immediately and your results become available to you directly.
  • If you have little time-There is no waiting time, you do not need to book an appointment as they are not necessary. You just go to one of the lab testing centers with your confirmation order and get tested.
  • If you need to get the results to your doctor-Personalabs offers a service whereby you can share your results directly with your doctor, if you wish.
  • Using this service as part of your regular healthcare-Don’t wait for small issues to turn into big issues. Take an active role in managing your healthcare.
Personalabs accepts all major credit cards, PayPal (including Buy Now, Pay Later), Amazon Checkout, FSA cards and all pre-paid gift cards.
We currently do not accept any form of health insurance as our blood test prices are the lowest available on the market. Personalabs saves you money and is cheaper than the actual premium you would pay to your insurance provider. We do, however, offer the ability to provide you with an insurance admissible receipt. You can use that to claim back funds from your insurance company.
What are you waiting for? Take an active role in your healthcare. Get the blood tests you need and results quickly for much less than traditional testing.

Product Review: Premium Mustache Wax by Beardsmen Spirit

A few weeks ago, I reviewed the Premium Beard Oil and Conditioner from Beardsmen Spirit. My brother loved it and I'm sure he'll be glad to try the wax.

My Thoughts

The wax smells really nice. One thing that my brother hates with products is if it has a very strong scent. He likes the subtle wood and manly scent of this one. After applying, he says his mustache felt soft. It felt a little bit oily, but it didn't bother him at all. He likes that his mustache is easier to tame with the wax.

Overall, he says this is a great product. It's like a hair conditioner that keeps the mustache soft and easy to manage. If you want to keep your mustache in place, this wax will do it.

Naturalico Rechargeable Electronic Pedicure Foot File and Callus Remover Review

I was very excited when I found out I will be reviewing a callus remover. I hate having calluses on my feet, but having them removed by professionals are very expensive. Thanks to Naturalico, I can now do the job right at the comfort of my home.

Product Description

REMOVE MORE SKIN EVERY SECOND Spins 40 times/sec. More spins means more exfoliation than other tools
EXFOLIATE A LITTLE OR A LOT With 2 speeds, our pedicure tool lets you customize the experience. Clear your callus using our callus shaver GOOD FOR THE PLANET & FOR YOUR FEET Rechargeable to reduce battery waste; Gentler than a manual file
SEE WHAT YOU'RE TREATING LED light illuminates skin, so you can see calluses & rough patches clearly
SIMPLE TO CLEAN Water-resistant design for quick & easy washing; 2 Grinding Roller Heads + 1 Cleaning Brush included!

My Thoughts

The callus remover has a sleek design, it's easy to hold and grip and it fits my hand perfectly. I love that it's so easy to use and it doesn't hurt like metal scrapers and pumice stones.

What I did was gently moved it along my foot, just as instructed. It comes with an LED light that helps you see trouble spots. After a few seconds, I washed my feet with soap and warm water, then I applied foot lotion. I was pleasantly surprised that the skin on my feet felt very soft and smooth. This tool took away the dry skin in seconds what other callus removers took weeks.

You can see in the photos how my husband's foot has improved after using the callus remover. I was planning to take my own photos, but I was too excited to try it that I forgot to take the "before" pictures. Good thing the man of the house was game at this and he easily agreed to model for me.

Overall, this is a great tool and I love it. I've been using it for a few days and I love how it worked on taking away calluses and dry skin. If you're tired of using pumice stones or metal scrapers, this is a good product to try. I love that it's rechargeable' it saves you from buying batteries over and over again.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Rechargeable Electronic Pedicure Foot File and Callus Remover through the Bella Naturals website and on Amazon. It's fairly priced at $29.99.

Where to Find Cheap Children's Clothes Online

Time flies fast. Three years ago I was buying baby girls' accessories for my twin granddaughters; next month they are turning 4.

I like it when they wear the same clothes and accessories, so whenever I shop for them, I made sure I bought two of each kind.

Now that they are older, they choose their own clothes. Soleil, the older of the twins likes the girly stuff. She likes dresses with ruffles and she calls those ruffles "froo-froo." Cute, isn't it? She loves to wear skirts and is big on accessories, especially when it comes to her hair.

Sophia, on the other hand, likes simple dresses and she prefers to wear leggings. Yeah, she loves to accessorize as well, but unlike her "ate," she likes the simple ones.

They don't wear school uniforms, so they go to school wearing regular clothes. Plus everyday, they need to bring extra clothes for changing, so, they really need lots of clothes. Their mom and I used to go to Divisoria to shop for more affordable clothes before. That's since we've discovered Zalora.

At first, I didn't think Zalora caters to the little ones as well. I was very surprised to find out that they do and their clothes and accessories are very affordable. You can check it out here if you are also looking to shop for children's clothes and blings.

And no, I am not riding the Jeepney going to Divisoria, endure the traffic and sweat my way through the jam packed streets ever again. I can find everything online with just a few clicks of a mouse.

Coping With Hearing Loss

Like any ailment or medical setback, hearing loss can make someone feel like less of a person because of the lack of one of the senses. Knowing that you or your family member is not alone is important in dealing with the situation life has presented you. Over 20% of American adults experience some type of hearing loss and it is the third most common health issue suffered. The key is to accept it and find what treatments work best for you.

If the feelings associated with hearing loss are not dealt with, suffering something devastating like this can lead to depression, anger and more medical problems. Although unfortunate, it is key to accept and plan how to cope with such an event. Doing so will heighten one's mental and physical state greatly.

Hearing loss can affect people of all ages. It is important to be aware of any changes in your hearing or the hearing of your children in order to treat it properly. Most people do not have this sort of thing checked and that can lead to further loss and other problems. Regular exams and impromptu check-ups when something is suspected are important to ensure the best health.

A loss in hearing from birth, happening gradually later in life or suddenly from injury are each different ways that result in similar outcomes. With the advancement in technology today, there are many different approaches in dealing with the presence of difficulty in hearing. Depending on the degree of loss, there are different options you have to potentially hear better.

Mild, moderate, severe and profound are the levels of loss. Talking with your doctor to completely understand your situation is important in dealing with the situation and planning how to cope with it. No matter the degree, there are support groups available to assist in your journey through hearing loss that can help in ways you wouldn't expect.

As far as treatments for the troubles, there are hearing aids, implants and hearing assistive technology to help if able. Hearing aids are the most common and can be purchased in a world of ways. Products like the Miracle-Ear or those recommended by your doctor can be just what you need to help with your loss.

Cochlear implants are medical devices surgically placed in the ear to assist those with severe and profound situations. They stimulate the auditory nerve and can create a range of sound to assist hearing. They do not replace normal hearing and you must be evaluated by doctors to determine if this level of treatment will be effective.

Hearing assistive technology includes a range of devices that assist in the functioning of hearing aids and implants. They help enable you to separate the sounds you want to hear from background noises. These help in restaurants, movie theaters, with smoke alarms and more. Assess how much help you need hearing with aids and implants to determine which products will make sounds easier to hear.

Effectively dealing with the fact of a hearing loss and using the resources available will make the journey an easier one. Although the reality is tough, the ability to accept and live with it is possible if all is done to help. Otherwise, live life to its fullest potential regardless.

Wow Them with Ear Cuffs

Ear cuffs are all the rage in Hollywood, so why not update your look and wow the people around you? The glamorous earrings were originally worn in ancient Greece to symbolize femininity and prosperity. 

Modern ear cuffs which have traditional posts, but they extend upward  and clip to the sides of the ears are versatile, sophisticated and incredibly flattering. These earrings are eye catching because the unique shape draws the eye vertically and they do make your face look slim.

Online Gaming Fun

Are you into online gaming? If you love playing, I am so sure you have visited a lot of online casino websites already. When you play online, do you also check if they offer no deposit bonus codes? Well, I come from a family who loves to gamble, albeit we only play for fun. We would set up the Mahjong table on weekends or play cards using loose change. Yup, we don't really do it for money, but you can just imagine the fun we have when we mock the losers, enjoy the food and just feel the high when you're on a winning streak.

Going back to my post, there was a time when my cousins and myself, decided to check out None of us believed that a no deposit bonus is actually true. But, we very surprised to find out that you could really get bonuses from different casino websites. The bonuses range from $8 to $100, super cool, no? And that's not all. You can actually use that bonus to play your favorite games. So you see, there is nothing to lose when you lose. And when you win? You can easily convert it into cash.

That really changed how I look into casinos. I mean, I'm not encouraging you to gamble, okay. It's just that I thought these sites are no good because you always end up a loser. If you are into this kind of thing, then you might want to make a click stop and check what they have to offer.

Did you know?

Grazing at red clears brain fog. According to experts, that's the fastest way to shake off the mental fuzziness that always tends to set in, especially on busy days. Simply stare at something red, like red flowers, red paintings, a tablecloth or anything that's red for about a minute. Yup, that's all it takes to sharpen your brain power and increase stamina levels. Focusing on the color increases the production of energizing brainwaves, helping you feel clear headed and alert in no time. Warning: You shouldn't stare at any red hue, while eating; it increases your appetite.

A Minty Soak Can Ease Pain

Ooh, nothing feels better than relaxing in a steamy bath, especially if you had a long day with sore, stiff muscles. For the most soothing and relaxing soak, add 10 drops of essential peppermint oil to the bath water. 

And that's what I will do after I finish my research for the most affordable shubb. What's a shubb?

It's a capos for all kinds of string instrument and I need to find one for my son's guitar. Alright, enough of capos. 

According to research, peppermint oil's phytonutrients are absorbed through the skin, relaxing tense muscles. And hot water increases the flow of oxygen and healing minerals to damaged muscle fibers, helping to ensure speedy pain relief.

The first thing I did when I opened the bottle is sniff. As expected, it smells manly. I guess that's what every man looks for in any men's product. My brother grows a beard, so I gave him the oil to try.

It's an oil, but he likes that it doesn't feel too oily. Another thing that he noticed is it softens not just the beard, but also the skin. He's been using it for more than a week now and he likes that his skin is well moisturized. He used to have dry spots on that part of his face, but now his skin is well hydrated.

Thankfully, there is a safe e-mail service designed and written specifically for kids to help protect them online.

It only took me seconds to register and add my kid. Once you've added your child's email account, it will automatically take you to the safety settings page for that child. After setting it up, it's ready to use. What's even more fun is your child can choose his or her template.
