Mix Up Your Lips!

We go through a lot of ChapStick in this house.  We have tons of different flavors and switch out all of the time.  I was super excited when I found out about the newest addition to the ChapStick family…. ChapStick® MixStix™It is a really cool  two-sided lip balm that offers one flavor on each side to be worn alone or together  – making a third unique flavor combo. MixStix™ is available in three refreshing flavor combinations – Lemon Berry Sorbet, Strawberry Banana Smoothie and Green Apple Caramel.

My family tried all three flavors and loved the Lemon Berry Sorbet the best – it just seemed to feel like you were putting Summer on your lips.  I love the double sided tube…it gives me all sorts of options – and who doesn’t like options?


Its just like the original ChapStick and contains 11 moisturizers, including ingredients like Aloe to keep lips deliciously soft and smooth for eight hours of continuous moisturization.

You can get your own sweet-smelling hydrated pucker beginning June 5th exclusively at Walgreens nationwide. Keep your lips healthy and happy with your own flavor combination this season and indulge your lips by creating your own fun with your own MixStix™ samples!

I don’t know about where you are…but it is a VERY rainy 4th of July here in Georgia.  All of the fireworks,parades, and bands have been cancelled.  What’s a girl to do?  How about shop on line? Perfect.  RugsUSA is having a HUGE 4th of July sale right now.  Their rugs are 75% off with free shipping!!  Just use code IND75 at checkout.  Awesome, right?

I ordered a 6 foot round chevron rug for under my kitchen table (originally $137) for only $35.


They have so many rugs to choose from, it is so hard to choose.

Loving My Fitbit Flex!

I am always looking for something to motivate me to move more.  The FitBit Flex has been the perfect motivation!  It is a little bracelet that I wear all of the time (even in the shower) to track my steps, calorie burn, sleep, activity, weight,  and even my food.  It syncs with both my computer and my iPhone.  I love it because it shows how many steps I have taken in real time.  My goal is 10,000 steps per day and I have been doing a pretty good job of meeting that goal.

It is really handy when running or walking because it also tracks my mileage.  It saves me the trouble of putting on my Garmin every time I head out for a run. It was really fun to have on when we were out of town last week…do you ever wonder how much you walk when you are sight seeing?  It was A LOT!

It will help you reach a certain goal weight by telling you how many calories you can have each day based on your activity and how much you want to lose.

It also tracks my sleep cycles.  It lets me know how long I slept and how many times I wake up each night (which is really interesting).

The best part about the Fitbit is that you don’t have to plug it into anything to sync up.  It uses the Bluetooth feature on your phone to sync or syncs to you computer automatically when you are close to it.  You do need to charge it about once every 5 days.

I purchased my Fitbit Flex at Target for about $100.  They are pretty hard to find right now because the demand for them is so high.  I have been using it for about a month now, and love it.

Are you using the Fitbit?  If so, add me as a friend…we can take our steps together!

Another genius idea (and you know how much I love a great genius idea)!  STAYHOLD is a brilliant little barricade that grips the carpet in the trunk of your car to keep your items from flying around.  This is perfect for my Volvo mom-mobile….things are always flying around the back.   Even better…they are only $13!

Mood Polish

I love things that change colors.  Mood rings, those shirts that change in the sun, and transition lenses.  I found this nail polish that I want to try that changes color when you get out in the sun.  Sounds fun for $10, right?

Prank Pack

I love these fake boxes that you use to put your real present in.  How much fun would it be to see the recipients face when they open up their present and think it is one of these weirdo products?  Of course, you put something wonderful in the box 🙂

Found at Target

I saw this awesome cell phone holder at Target the other day for only $10!  Awesome, right?  The Chevron print caught my eye, and the amazing pockets sealed the deal.

Grad Gift

I love my pink tool kit.  I actually have one upstairs and one downstairs.  Not only is it super cute, my husband will never steal my tools because they are PINK!  This would make a great gift for a graduate getting ready to head out on their own.  This is the cutest, most functional $20 gift out there.
