Quest Chips

Have you ever tried Baked Lays? Well if you like those, you’ll most certainly like these. They were basically identical in texture and flavor. The only thing different? The fact that Quest Protein Chips are high in protein and low carb.

My favorite was the bbq flavored, next as the cheddar and then the sea-salt. For 21 g of protein, 5 g of carbs, 120 calories, and 2 grams of fat, you can’t go wrong! Most chips have over 25 grams of carbohydrates, 10 grams of fat, 190 plus calories, and sugars. Plus what kind of chips have protein in them? Not many!

Hair Charmsies is a company that makes sparkly decals for your hair. 
Have a special occasion coming up?  Or do you simply want to add a little flair to your hair?  These charms come in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes and are easy to use. They even have team colors! The best part is, all you need is a flat iron!
Simply tear off a precut sheet.  Peel back and position the charmsies in place.  Once you position the sticky side on your hair, tap that section with a flat iron for 4-6 seconds to activate the adhesive.  It really is that simple!
To avoid making dents in your hair, don’t use the flat iron for long periods of time.  Tap quickly and move on to the next section.  These will not damage your hair, but they will stay on over a few washes. 
I kept my Hair Charmsies on during the course of several washes, and then they started to come off slowly. They caught people’s attention everywhere I went.

Kidecals are delightfully versatile labels

Have you heard of Kidecals?  Kidecals is a woman owned company that offers highly durable labels.  You can put them on anything – including fabric – wash, wear and wash again – and the label will still be stuck.  It’s incredible – and such a novel idea.
Go to their website.  There are literally hundreds of designs and purposes – at least one of which I am sure will fit your needs.

There are tons of uses, including canning labels, keyboard labels to enhance your computer and make it more fun, and even waterproof custom names labels which are great for school, daycare, camp, organizing, and travel. And much much more! Personally, I use them to mark my electronics so that the kids don't grab the wrong one.
The product is of very high quality, the labels are worth the money, it a woman/mom-owned business – and the product stands up to what they say.  More importantly, the labels meet my high standards and stand up to all my little monsters.
If you are interested in trying Kidecals for yourself and/or your children! You can visit Kidecals Online

Milestone POD helps you keep track of the mileage on your shoes

Milestone Pod!  The most important tool in a runner's life are the shoes.  Am I right?!  So the pod helps you keep track of how many miles on your shoes so you can keep 'em or dump 'em.  Simple right?!  Here is how it works:

1. Fasten to your shoe. Run or walk. (It’s that simple.)
Simply lace the pod through your shoe and begin your work out. The pod collects data as soon as it senses movement. No buttons, no waiting, no hassle. Track your mileage for every run or walk – your pod goes with you everywhere. There is no need to disconnect from shoe!

Don't lie - that is a GIANT shoe!  You would think I was 8 feet tall!

2. Mileage motivation.

The pod constantly displays current total mileage from your shoes. Never replace a shoe too soon and avoid falling prey to injuries from broken down shoes (e.g. stress fractures, tendonitis, plantar fascitis, runner’s knee, shin splints, and others).

3. Smartphone friendly.

Wirelessly sync your pod with Bluetooth technology to view detailed work out data. The MilestonePod stores up to two weeks of data covering overall mileage, individual run mileage, pace, and cadence.

This one is my Milestone Pod App available thru the iTunes store set up for my Hokas.  It tracks everything and even asks you how much you weigh so it can properly calculate your cadence!
The pods are only $19.95!  A steal if you ask me!  It is like having one of those fancy iPhone apps or a Garmin without having to wear anything extra.  Just your shoes and take it from me, you can't even feel the pod on your shoes!  You can buy one here.

HandMadeTea is a gift club that designs such blended teas and ships them to you on a subscription box-of-the-month basis for $19.95 / month with shipping included. Each blend also has a unique label created by artists who are given 100% freedom in their design.

Neutrogena is the first step for teens to fight acne

Neutrogena is the first step to helping teens (and adults) fight acne and get that clean face we all crave!

Luckily, the Neutrogena Dream Team created a Mom’s Guide To Helping Teens Fight Acne. Let's face it, everyone gets acne (even adults) but teen's have the worst time dealing with it so here is a few tips to help fight those awful face demons:
  1. Get into an acne-fighting routine: It takes time to see the results, but being positive and knowing that you can defeat it is step 1.
  2. Start with a basic acne wash twice a day: A great acne wash will help fight blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples. The Oil-Free Acne Wash by Neutrogena is a great start to keeping those demons at bay.
  3. Remove makeup before cleansing, because makeup can plug pores which will lead to pimples and blackheads. Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes are a great way to remove makeup in just a swipe.
  4. Introduce a spot treatment to zap visible acne.
Our teen age daughter likes using the Neutrogena products especially the body wash. Being she plays sports, she tends to have breakouts under her arm and on her back from sweat. So, the body wash does great to keep her breakouts under control!

Now, one lucky winner will win their very own Neutrogena kit (like above) to help get those breakouts under control! Use the rafflecopter link below to enter:

Thank you to Neutrogena for providing the Dream Team Mom’s Guide along with a variety of Neutrogena acne products to me. All opinions expressed are 100% my own. The sponsor is responsible for giveaway prize fulfillment. 

Green Virgin Products Soap Nuts Liquid

 When I first heard of Soap Nuts, I was intrigued. A natural "nut" product that you throw in the wash with your clothes? I really wanted to try this out, but I was a little apprehensive. I have been using the same detergent and fabric softener for at least 10 years because others tend to make me itch if not break out in a rash.

I easily got 50 loads done with this small bottle so far and I’m not even halfway through the bottle.  It has a convenient pump top too so I’m not pouring it in and accidentally using too much.  I just loaded up the machine, did 2 pumps and then went on my merry way.
One thing I noticed is that it doesn’t suds up like commercial detergents.  If you use shampoo that is more natural, then you will get what I mean.  Same concept.  It’s soapy and you get some suds, but not an overabundance like you might be use to.  If you see less suds, it’s normal so don’t think you need to add more!
Pretty neat huh?

High Road Charg'nRide™ Car Phone Holder with Dual USB Chargers

The High Road Charg'nRide™ Car Phone Holder with Dual USB Chargers is the perfect thing for moms on the go.  It works as a charging station for your phone, you can charge your tablet at the same time and the swivel head lets you flip to horizontal use which is ideal for using your phone as a GPS.  No more picking up the phone and looking at it all the time or worry about it slipping off the seat.


The Charg'nRide has a adjustable, 360 degree rotate and pivot holder with non-slip grips and gooseneck stand positions the phone where you need it. It also gives you 3 chargers in one plug-in port - a 12V DC charger and 2 USB ports - so you and a passenger can charge while you drive.

Now, I lost this to my mother the very first day it arrived. She is in her vehicle for over 6 hours a day so it has been extremely useful. She is able to charge her tablet and phone at the same time plus her phone is within reach. Now, when using the stand with your phone, it is best that it does not have a case. I tried to use the stand with my iPhone in its otter box. It made the arm heavy and it would not stay up.
High Road carries a lot of great products for us on the go! From chargers to organizers, so head on over and check out High Road on:

SlipX Solutions keeps you from falling in the shower

SlipX Solutions

There are some things you use in your house that you really don't think much about.  Then if suddenly that item is no longer there you feel the deficit profoundly!  Shower and bathtub mats fit in that category.  For the longest time we didn't use one because I just couldn't find one I liked.

You know they have to be functional.  I also want something that is appealing to the eye as well.  When I found SlipX Solutions I knew I had to try their mats!

SlipX Solutions has 18 different styles that cover practical designs to more fancy decorative ones.  One major thing was that they are all machine washable!  Talk about practical!!!
SlipX Solutions has designed a brand new bath mat that's unlike any other you've seen. The new Twist of Citrus Bath Mat was inspired by slices of your favorite fruits like Oranges, Lemons and Limes. These new bath and shower mats will fit in with your colorful bathroom design while providing the non-slip protection you need to feel confident while taking a shower. The subtle texture of the top design gives your feet the perfect platform needed to keep them from slipping and sliding, yet the texture is still comfortable to stand on.

Adhesive Bath Treads shaped like flowers. These are a great option if you don't like the mats. The give you that added tread in the tub and fashionable at the same time.

You can visit SlipX Solutions to see their huge selection of mats which range from $9.99- $15.99 in price.

Bandelettes help take care of Chub Rub

Bandelettes are sexy, garter-style, 6-inch long, elastic lace thigh bands that you wear over your trouble spot(s). The material prevents chafing by protecting the exact spot where your legs rub together.
Bandelettes was kind enough to send me both a beige and a black pair of bands to try out (they also have red, white and chocolate options!). They are $14.99 per pair, and come in five different sizes. You choose your size by measuring the widest part of your thigh. The silicon bands on the inside prevent slippage, the elasticity provides a snug hold and the lace makes ‘em fashionable.
So there you have it! Overall, I’m absolutely over-the-moon in love with this product. Discovering an affordable solution to my chub rub problem that makes me feel feminine, sexy and comfortable is a blessing. I highly recommend Bandelettes for anyone suffering from chafing, or as a considerate gift for a friend-in-need!
