CVS Launches Online Contact Lens Prescription Renewal Tool

This week, CVS and CVS Health announced the launch of QuickRenew, an online contact lens prescription renewal tool.

“We continue to adapt and evolve our digital offerings in response to the pandemic. This addition to our optical site gives customers a new way to fulfill an important health care need safely and confidently from the comfort of their homes,”

Michele Driscoll, Vice President of Customer Engagement, ExtraCare, Digital, & Promotion, CVS Health.

QuickRenew digital screening is available on the CVS Optical website and takes less than 15-20 minutes. You’ll get a vision exam and results by a board-certified ophthalmologist licensed in your state.

And you can do all from the comfort and safety of your own home.

Yes way!

If appropriate, they’ll issue you a valid prescription you can use to buy contact lenses anywhere in the United States.

All you need is a smartphone or a computer with a webcam and a microphone.

You should know:

QuickRenew only looks at how well you can see, not the health of your eye so our friends over at CVS recommends you see your eye care doctor for a comprehensive eye exam.

Drew Barrymore Has a Day Time TV Show?

Apparently, actress, mom, producer and everyone’s favorite rom-com girl, Drew Barrymore, has her own day time television TALK show!

I had NO idea. The only reason I know now is because I watched SNL’s premiere return last weekend and they did a spoof of the show.

It turns out the show is nationally syndicated.

That’s a pretty big deal for someone who is new to daytime talk TV. With that said, Drew Barrymore is a famous face and name, so, networks aren’t really risking too much, there.

So what’s the word on the street about the show?

There’s a weird energy in the air on Drew Barrymore’s new nationally syndicated morning talk show, a frisson that’s hard to grasp but that announces itself as something entirely other

Vulture

Drew Barrymore’s show is so weird it’s almost hypnotic.

William Hill, AV Club

The opening-day “Charlie’s Angels” reunion, lacking the moderating force of someone outside this tripartite friendship, left viewers on the outside. The conversation with Witherspoon, for instance, never really transcended a sort of complimentary back-and-forth about how each truly loves the other; moments where the pair edged up to actually discussing their lives, like a vacation they took together to Mexico, fell away.

Variety Magazine

As you can see reviewers (photographers, acting coaches, and anyone else who thinks they’re important in Hollywood), can be tough on the soul. With that said, I respect Variety magazine and I agree with their review based on what I’ve seen (so far).

There’s no doubt, Barrymore may not be your cup of tea. But I’ll let you tell it.

The best segments of the show

The cooking segment is absolutely, hands down, one of Barrymoore’s best segments of the show. The following include clips of the segments.

If you get a chance I highly recommend you try these easy to make recipes.

The discount shopping segment 😁

The shopping segment ranks second best on my list. I’ve seen some EXCELLENT deals. I may be shooting myself in the foot here by telling you this but you should check in on her deals between now and shopping season.

Have you watched the show? Tell us what you think in the comment section.

Thought For The Week, Aspire To Be YOU

Aspiring to be our genuine self is probably one of the hardest things to do.—April Maye

so many in social media are there with the intent to sell something even if it’s only an image. as such, they show you something they’re usually not—perfect, financially wealthy, humble, honest, the list goes on.

the desire to be seen, heard and valued amongst the masses leads to false representation, copycatting and plagiarism. the desperation on the Internet highway is REAL

i see so many women i once respected for their message or brand succumb to the pressure to be someone else. they hop from one bandwagon to the next. inappropriately use causes for selfish gain. steal someone’s idea, quote or tagline. some change the words of others to make them seem like their own, and some don’t even bother making changes. they just regurgitate it without shame or embarrassment for the whole world to see.

in doing so these women fail to show up for themselves.

i’ve had my experiences with this type. i’m always so disappointed and shocked by their lack of awareness. and, while i’ve never been tempted to steal from others, i have had the feeling that i am not good enough. especially since i started blogging. I’ve written about that HERE.

i’ve compared myself to more established bloggers. we’ve all wanted those followers at some time or another. we all want to succeed.

but the desperate need for recognition and “follows” leads people to make big business mistakes. mistake that will not only damage their reputation, but inhibit them from achieving the one thing they really want: success.

with that said, here’s this week’s quote and something to think about.

Cameron Diaz Shares Her Go-To Comfort Food Recipe

actress, mom, funny girl, Cameron Diaz, and friend, Katherine Powers, CEO of WhoWhatWear have collaborated to create a brand of wine.

Avaline wine is labeled “clean” and organic.

Avaline makes clean, delicious wines with organic grapes. Transparently produced, full of natural goodness, free of unnecessary extras.

Avaline website

i reached out to Avaline to ask if there was added preservatives in their wine. i never got a response. so that makes me think the customer service is poor. and, the odds are: there is added preservatives in the wine. if you have asthma and allergies don’t be fooled by labels like “clean.” please do your research before trying.

with that said, i don’t criticize makers for creating products that work for them. if they don’t have health issues, they won’t be thinking about those things during the process, so, i don’t ding them for that. BUT blowing me off means they lose points from me (🤣)

still, when Diaz shared her go-to recipe i felt it was worth sharing with you. it’s a perfect dish for the weekend. let me know if you give it a try—and if you try the wine too! we are definitely curious.

i should say that i think it’s pretty cool that they got to create their own wine. i’d love to do the same. maybe someday, i will.

Enjoy. 💋 and as they always say “may you drink responsibly.”
