Capturing Every Moment with Your GoPro

We all love to travel – the exploration, wanderlust and thrill of it all. There’s something about being in a new place and experiencing a beautiful surrounding that I always want to capture. I’ve recently come across a couple products that will allow us to do just that in ANY situation and from ANY angle – OCAM.

OCAM is a company focused on providing mounts for GoPro cameras. Say goodbye to the awkward angles and random blurr in a third of our shots because we didn’t have the right prop. Only left wishing we had a travel buddy to film us cruising down the trail on our bikes or even grabbing the angle from below as we climb. Take a look!

The Zipmount is exactly as it sounds. Compact and affordable, this mount allows us to place it anywhere that a zip tie will get around. Bike frames, helmets, rails, a bar on our ATV, the options are endless. The security and durability will hold the camera in place for  those fast action shots. 

The Spinmount + Snowspike This is the one fixed mount that will capture every angle possible. Fixed on a snowspike, the mount follows its name as rotates a full 360 degrees and a full 180 degrees of pitch movement. This will capture every angle needed from one location. Say goodbye to laying close to the ground or finding the best awkward prop and “hoping” the camera will stay. This spike will do the job. Frisbee, dog day adventures, sand, snow or rock ledges – this spike will keep all of us satisfied.

OCAM provides compact mounting solutions to your GoPro camera in an affordable and efficient way. Say goodbye to missing the perfect frame. Turn on our cameras, grab our Zipmount and Spinmount and let’s get out there to enjoy our day!

Save with Bubbles, Bathroom Cleaning Tips

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #savewithbubbles #CollectiveBias

The summer months have been and are continuing to be incredibly hectic. It’s amazing that it’s already July and there’s still so much coming up on the agenda. Does anyone else feel like this? How can we get it all done?

#savewithbubbles #CollectiveBias #ad #bathroomcleaingtips

Personally, I’ve found it hard to stay on top of everything and cleaning my home is on top of the list. How can I get it all done as efficiently, affordably and cleanly as possible? While at Dollar General, I came across a couple products that have helped to save my time and pocketbook and created a list to help us all out along the way.

***The key is to create time and a stick to it. Give yourself 30 minutes to clean each room and dedicate all 30 minutes. It’s incredible what you can accomplish. Let’s get it out of the way so we can spend more time doing things with the ones we love.

Bathroom Cleaning Kit:
Disinfectant Scrubbing Bubbles® Bathroom Cleaner
Scrubbing Bubbles® Toilet Cleaning Gel
Glass Cleaner
Toilet Bowl Brush
Broom & Dust Pan
Brush or old Toothbrush

  1. Create a spot where your cleaning products are easily found.
    Remember the list above. It’s super easy to keep all of these items together. My bathroom is my least favorite spot to clean (maybe yours too). I’ve found that if I separate my cleaning products and make them easily available, it’s provides more motivation to get it done.

#savewithbubbles #CollectiveBias #ad #bathroomcleaingtips

Dollar General is a great place to save on cleaning products. For instance, I keep the Disinfectant Scrubbing Bubbles® Bathroom Cleaner and Scrubbing Bubbles® Toilet Cleaning Gel as part of my bathroom cleaning kit. The Disinfectant Scrubbing Bubbles® Bathroom Cleaner has a wide-spray, will work upside down (let’s chat about those tough corners) and no matter the mess, Scrubbing Bubbles® takes cleaning beyond 99.9% for 100% problem solved (with a smell that lets you know it’s that clean). And if you are like me and the toilet is the biggest pain point, the Scrubbing Bubbles® Toilet Cleaning Gel have saved me.

  1. Cleaning the shower & sink. 

Spray the shower (counter tops, sink, and toilet) generously with the Disinfectant Scrubbing Bubbles® Bathroom Cleaner. Fill the tube with an inch or two of hot water and let the bathroom steam for 5 minutes. This will help to loosen any dirt and mildew within the area. Working from top to bottom, scrub with brush and wipe down. Rinse with water and wipe down with the terry-cloth.

#savewithbubbles #CollectiveBias #ad #bathroomcleaingtips

  1. Close the shower curtain.

Never leave the shower curtain open as it will hold water and create mildew stains on the bottom. Once complete, always close it completely to provide a chance to air dry.

  1. The toilet.

Using the Disinfectant Scrubbing Bubbles® Bathroom Cleaner, spray down the toilet (I use this on the inside and out). Allow to sit for a couple minutes and wipe down the outside and clean the inside with the toilet brush. When complete, use the Scrubbing Bubbles® Toilet Cleaning Gel for continuous cleaning. The gels provide touch free, continuous clean and zero residue and lasts up to seven days.

  1. Glass & Mirrors.

Spray with a glass cleaner and wipe dry.

  1. Floors.

Shake out the rugs and make sure they are washed often. Don’t forget to sweep the corners.

  1. Treat yourself.
    Pour yourself a cool one & think about what you’ll do this weekend with your time and money saved!
