LBL stands for light bladder leak, if you didn't know. This can happen when the pelvic muscles become weak. It can happen from age, childbirth or other medical reasons. The good news is that there are things that you can do about it. There are certain exercises called Kegels that help to tighten these muscles. You can also avoid certain foods that can trigger LBL such as spicy and acidic foods or drinks. Cold weather can also trigger LBL, so keep warm. No I find that sneezing, coughing, laughing uncontrollably and exercise are also triggers. Luckily, there is Poise! They have you covered no matter how severe, there is a Poise pad for every need.
I received 3 sample packs of Poise pantyliners for trying and sharing. I have to say that I am impressed with the small thin size of the liners. I didn't think that they would hold much but I put them to the test. Before I get to the results though, I want to share some other points.
Sharing with my BFF.
These poise samples came just in time for holiday celebrations. Celebrating with spicy food and drink, dancing and sightseeing. So many things to do and no time to worry about leakage.
Christmas shopping at the mall? No problem. Poise gives you that extra time to make it to the restroom even if it is on the other side of a huge mall.
If outdoor activities are more your bag, don't forget your poise. It will help you go that extra mile.
Now the test. This You Tube video shows the difference between Poise and regular period pads. It is remarkable how much they hold . I conducted my own experiment with my sample and I can attest that this video is 100% accurate but don't take my word for it. You can request your own free sample.

I received lots of great new products to taste test and share. I was very excited to see the new flavored soups, especially the Beer n Cheese with bacon and beef! It looks so hearty, I couldn't wait to try it. I made it for myself for lunch and my husband who really is not a soup guy asks, "What's cookin?" When I tell him, he wants a taste. Well, I never saw him enjoy soup quite so much. He ended up eating the whole can and I got the taste! #campbellsTasters #sponsered
Next, I wanted to try the Campbells Skillet Sauce. Using the Creamy Parmesan Chicken sauce I created a great one skillet meal with chicken pasta and spinach.
Chicken Rice Stew
Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in garlic, onion, and celery, and cook until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in flour, and cook for 3 minutes more. Pour in the chicken broth, then bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
Stir in chicken, wild rice, carrot and red pepper flakes; return to a simmer, and cook until the carrots are tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in cream starter, and cook until warmed through. Season to taste with salt and pepper before serving.
Holidays and Campbell's
Thanksgiving means family and tradition in my family. No Thanksgiving would be complete without Green Bean Casserole made with Campbell's soup. I also used Swanson's Chicken Broth in my stuffing and to cook the Turkey, keeping it flavorful and moist! #DiscoverCampbells

Campbell's Soup for Easy Cooking
Campbell's recently launched a new line of soups for easy cooking. Included in my sample share was the Savory Portobello Mushroom. This is a quick and easy meal that can be prepared in less then 20 minutes. Served with a side of salad, it is a hearty, healthy complete meal for your family.
I Could have had a V8
Did I mention how much I like V8? The original is my favorite, however there are some new flavors that I am equally impress me. Included in my sample kit was a coupon for a free spicy mango V8. It sounds great but I have not been able to find it in my area which surprises me since Campbell's is a NJ based company. I know my grandchildren like the V8 Fusion and are none the wiser that they are drinking vegetables! I did try the new black pepper flavor and I have to say, it really excited my taste buds.
