Who Exactly is Dana Pretzer?

H0bjhjztg7di. My name is Dana Pretzer and that’s me to the left. And before you say anything I know. I’m such a basic white girl, but I just can’t, not have my Starbucks. Well, back to the whole point of this. So before you ask I am not a doctor, but I love medicine and researching it. It’s basically a hobby of mine. Which is why I’m making this symptoms blog. This will basically going to be my version of WebMD, but better more or less. Also a disclaimer, I am not a medical expert so take everything I write with a grain of salt.

There will also be a personal blog of mine on this site. Most of these will be posted on the homepage, as well as on their own page. This will be just whatever I feel like talking about. Well, that pretty much sums up who I am and I hope you enjoy this website! Thanks!

The best frames ever – Written by my mother!

When it comes to home decorating, I am always trying to find the best, most unique items to help bring originality and style to my home. Just like a lot of other people, I feel that no home decorative theme is complete without the inclusion of some fantastic family portraits hung upon the walls for show. Yet I have always struggled with giving my family portraits the proper showcase that they deserve. If you are anything like me, then you know the struggle very well: you spend hundreds of dollars getting beautiful family pictures done, only to have them end up in a drawer somewhere because you can never find a picture frame that does your stunning photos justice. I have always wanted to keep photos of my kids hanging upon the walls, but I have never been able to find a frame that really draws attention to the focus of the pictures. Most picture frames I come across are just so ornate that they end up pulling all of the attention away from the photo of my kids, an onto themselves. Other frames are just too bulky or tacky and do not match the overall decor and style of my home. I have been struggling to discover the best way to display my beloved family pictures for so long that I had, truly, pretty much given up all hope. So you can imagine just how thrilled and surprised I was when I finally discovered the backlit picture frame.

The backlit picture frame is a truly one of a kind picture displaying experience. There is seriously no other type of product like this out there on the market today. It is completely unique and totally innovative, and I absolutely loved the fact that it was so easy to customize the frame based upon which picture it was showing off. I first came across the backlit picture frame on New Light Portrait’s website. New Light Portrait is an awesome, family oriented business run by an ordinary and easy to relate to guy named Joe Brychell. Brychell first came up for the idea of an LED backlit picture frame when he was struggling to properly display his own family photos. When he realized how incredible the backlit picture frame really was, he just knew he had to share it with the rest of the world- and I am so so glad that he did!!!


The reason that I love my so much is that it really brings my family photograph to life. Brychell’s patented LED edge lit frame highlights the main focus of my beautiful family picture, and makes the picture look so crisp, well defined, and impressively life like! I have seriously never seen anything like the backlit picture frame before: my family photo looks as if it is jumping off of the page!

Finding the backlit picture frame that is just right for you is so simple that you will be shocked you haven’t done it sooner. New Light Portrait offers such a wide variety of different sizes and shapes of frames, that you will definitely be able to find the backlit picture frame that you need in order to make your photographs look their best. Another awesome part about these cool backlit picture frames? Unlike most frames, which wear out within just a few years, New Light Portrait’s backlit picture frames stay beautiful for up over ten years- that is over one hundred thousand hours of continuous, beautiful focus on your most treasured photographs! Talk about getting the most out of your money.

Before I discovered New Light Portrait’s backlit picture frame, I was at such an awful point in my home decoration. I just did not know how to give my family photographs the focus I knew they deserved amidst rooms full of other art work and lots of decorative furniture. Discovering the backlit picture frame has truly changed my life. Whenever I have people over, they always comment on how beautiful and life like my family portrait is. They tend to ask me if I had the photographer do some sort of special editing or something, to make my photos look extra crisp, focused, and bright. I smile and laugh and immediately tell them that no, it’s not photography editing- it is the magic of the backlit picture frame!

Explanation of Who Exactly I am

So you kind of have a just of who I am, but nothing that substantial. I guess I think it might be a decent idea for you to have somewhat of an idea of who I am. Obviously, my name is Dana Pretzer. What exactly do I do? I blog! Okay, that can’t be farther from the truth. I mean I do, but just here. What I do career-wise is I’m an interior decorator. I know what you might be thinking. An interior decorator that is trying to tell me about illnesses. I get it. But there’s more to the story.


Back when I was in high school I wanted to be a doctor more than anything. It did everything in order to set myself up to succeed at just that. However, the more and more I learned about it the more I thought otherwise. Again you might be a little confused, but again there’s more to the story. I didn’t want to go through with it because of the schooling. Don’t get me wrong I loved learning about it; that’s why I still learn about it today. However, you have to be in school for way too long. Much longer than my liking. I’d feel like my whole life is on hold.


Let me explain how if works incase you don’t know. You first go to a four-year college of your choosing. That’s four years right there. That’s not too bad. Next, you go onto medical school. Medical school is four years of stress and high competition. So, that’s eight years so far, but that’s not it. You then have to do a residency for about two years. Residencies are different state to state, but two years is a pretty common length. Now we’re at ten years. You see why I wouldn’t want to do that now?


So back to me. Basically what I do is freelance interior decorating. I’m basically my own boss and I’m able to work whatever hours I want. Plus, this is a big plus, I absolutely LOVE it! There’s literally nothing else I’d want to do. Again, don’t get me wrong I love health, medicine, ect, but this is a different type of love. This is the work where I don’t ever feel stressed. Yes, at first it was stressful, but having to manage clients, money, and working is a bit stressful at first. Once you get all of that down it’s a piece of cake.


Last thing, that you already know, is I’m a coffee fiend. I literally, and I mean literally, can never get enough of that brown God. It’s my drug of choice (don’t do drugs kids, please), but seriously I can’t live without it. Before anyone says coffee is disgusting, STOP! I did agree with you at one point, but you kind of grow on it. It gets to a point where it’s just like water for you. You drink it all day everyday and don’t even realize you’re drinking it. That’s an addiction right?


Anyways, I’m rambling, that’s basically everything you should know about me now. Later on I may spill a few more things, but as of right now this is all you need to know. Ask me some questions if you want and I’ll try to answer them soon or later on when I decide you guys deserve to know more about me (just kidding). Last thing. Don’t forget to get your daily dose of caffeine, preferably in coffee form. Thanks!

Brice Remaley

When you want to get in shape or you want to achieve a certain goal related to your health and fitness regime, you probably need the help and guidance of a professional personal trainer. After all, a truly professional trainer can help you achieve your goal and improve your health at the same time. However, not all personal trainers are the same. Some trainers are specializing themselves in weight lift and body building while the others are specializing themselves in weight loss and health improvement. Some trainers like dealing with fitness improvement while others are focusing on nutrition. Choosing the reliable trainer can be confusing and overwhelming. But if you live in Houston, Texas, there is no need to have a second thought about hiring Brice Remaley.

He is very serious about helping people reaching for a better life and health state so he won’t slack off. He cares so much about his program and he makes sure that his clients enjoy the process as well as getting the results that they want.


What makes him different from the other professional trainer is the fact that he understands that different people need different programs and process. He knows that different people need to have a special program tailored especially for their needs. Unlike other trainers that implement the same uniformed programs for all of their clients, Remaley takes his time to come up with a special program for each client.

He provides flexible schedules and also affordable rates. By spending $150 per week for three sessions, you can manage your own schedule.

His service is free of contracts and he provides a flexible arrangement, service, and planning without compromising the quality. If you are ready to meet him and talk your goal, you can visit his official website or contact him through the provided option.

Boutique Rant

Here’s a little rant about people I kinda dislike. And by kinda dislike I mean I really, really don’t like.

So the other day I went into a boutique. You know just like any other girl does on her off days because clothes are basically our weakness. Anyway, I went into this boutique, by the way I have never been to this one, to be welcomed by no one. Okay, a little strange. I thought that until I realized there was someone who was actually on the floor. They were behind the register and just looked at me. Hello? A little bit of customer service goes a long way, but hey it’s whatever I’m here to shop not conversate. I walk around and I just couldn’t imagine what I saw. They literally had the cutest stuff! I literally found the jackpot of clothing stores.

I proceed to go around the store and just literally fall in love with everything I saw. I ended up grabbing at least 10 items, and I still hadn’t heard a word from the girl working there. Just a little strange in the sense that most people would ask if I wanted a room. I kinda paced around acting like I was still looking, even though I wasn’t, until she might say a word to me. Not so much to my surprise she didn’t. I just assumed that I would just go to the changing room and do this myself. Maybe it was a self serve boutique? Anyways, I go to the changing room try everything on and realized that this was the best place ever. Regardless of their terrible customer service I found heaven. Everything fit perfectly and the pricing was not bad at all.

Everything seemed good until I went to checkout. The girl finally said something to me, but it wasn’t what I was expecting at all. She asked if I was sure that I wanted all of these, and proceeds to question if I can even afford all of this. Really? Can I afford all of this? Of course I can. Why else would I take all of this up to the register. Honestly, that’s the rudest thing you can do to someone.

Just a quick rant about this and a lesson to everyone in retail. Customer service is key. Also never, and I mean never, question whether someone can buy something. It’s just plain rude and I’m like 99.9% sure that anyone who can’t pay for it will take it up to the register.

Why I Drink Starbucks


So if you read the homepage of this site you would know a little bit about me. This includes knowing that I am a bit of a “basic white girl”. I like to use that term loosely because I just don’t see it. Anyways, this girl loves herself some Starbucks on special occasions. And by special occasions I mean basically every day, multiple times a day. This has been almost an epidemic to me because I spend so much of my hard earned money on this stuff. Plus I just can’t seem to function without it. Whether that’s the Starbucks or the coffee I don’t know.

Why exactly do I drink Starbucks and not anything else? Well, short answer is I’m sponsored. Just kidding, I wish. (Starbucks if you see this please sponsor me). I like them because it’s convenient.

They are basically everywhere. I don’t think I’ve been to a place yet that doesn’t have one. Also they’re always consistent. The coffee I get, the mocha, always tastes the exact same whether I’m in Texas or Virginia. This is the biggest thing. I’ve tried other types and it just doesn’t stay consistent from state to state.


Now why don’t I just make my own? Well, short answer is I’m just lazy. Long answer is, is that I don’t think I’m good at it? It’s either I’m not good at it or it’s the thing where what you make doesn’t taste as good as when someone else makes it. If you don’t know what I mean think of it like this; do you like the sandwiches you make? If not, do you like the sandwiches subway makes? Or someone else you know makes? This is the effect I’m talking about, but with coffee instead. Whenever I’ve tried to make my own coffee it just seems to turn out terrible. I also may or may not know how many beans to put in the filter. But that can’t be it because I’ve tried the premade pod things and I get the same result. And by same result I mean literally the worst coffee I’ve tasted. I think I just about threw up once when I made my own coffee.


All in all, this is why I drink so much Starbucks and why I praise them. I know in the long run it would be so much cheaper to make my own coffee, but I just can’t seem to make that happen.


There’s my little rant about coffee and such. Do you like or hate Starbucks? Let me know how you make your coffee!
