WARNING: Things written in this column may cause you to become the “it” mom in the crowd.
If you want to know what is HOT, HAPPENING & HIP… this is the place for you! love2...is a column that informs you of the coolest trends that are happening right now! Our team is committed to finding great things so you don’t have to.
Are you traveling to a HOT sunny place this Christmas vacation? If the answer is yes, first of all I am jealous; second of all you will not believe what I am going to tell you about The Perfect Tan Bikini. This bikini is the greatest invention of our time (well maybe your time I might be past my prime on this one). This bikini can be worn with NO straps…that’s right NO straps… which means NO tan lines! It stays on with special glue called stick2u adhesive so you can take the straps off and the top stays in place.
While we are here freezing and you are laying on your beach chair sipping a daiquiri you can take your straps off and get that golden bronze tan without tan lines. The company says that the hotter you get the better the fit. You can also go swimming in the ocean or pool with no worries. Now if you are saying to yourself…I am a mom with kids and I can’t wear that…you are wrong! You can and you should.

Now for those of you that are staying home this holiday season
Is this is the third time this week you were woken up in the middle of the night because your/my little one (we won’t mention names) was having night mares? We have all been there and it’s not fun. Here is your lifeline for those days–trust me on this one. Forget the coffee– all you need is a bottle of water and this little packet of EBOOST. EBOOST (write it down now) is a packet of rocket fuel that will not only wake you up but will also provide you with all of the vitamins you need to keep you healthy. It contains tons of vitamins like 1,000 mg of vitamin C, 2,500mg of B12, and MANY more. Check out their website to see the entire line of products. www.eboost.com and use this code BOOST30 to receive 30% off for the next 7 days. You will thank me–promise.
I try to eat healthy but my addiction to chocolate always stands in the way. I start each day with a healthy shake because I can’t guarantee what I’m going to eat the rest of the day. The diet usually goes downhill after breakfast but at least I “drank” my greens early. Here is the recipe:
1 hand full of Kale
(you have no idea how healthy Kale is…they call it the superfood)
4-5 frozen strawberries or a hand full of blueberries
blueberries are healthier because they have antioxidants they also turn the drink purple which is great for the kids
1/2 cup vanilla almond milk
2 table spoons of ground Flax seed
1/2 cup coconut water (I use Zico)
4-5 ice cubes
Put in blender and pulse for a bit then let blend for about 3 minutes
I promise that you will not know you’re drinking Kale–other than the fact that the smoothie is green. I love it, and even my husband is now a believer…My kids still can’t get past the green color.
Now back to Coconut Water….My kids LOVE this drink! Instead of those sugary dye filled sports drinks the little ones now drink Zico Coconut Water in all of the flavors. It has no sugar and more potassium than 15 bottles of sports drinks combined. Zico has 5 electrolytes which help you stay hydrated so this is a great alternative to sports drinks for both adults and kids …check out their site www.zico.com
Now that you feel good you need to look good. Right?
GIVEAWAYS FOR YOU…
Because I believe in the products I have talked about in this column, I have contacted the companies to see if they would give us some things to give away….Just to clarify—I first like a product and then I ask the company for a giveaway…I do NOT ask for samples of products to talk about. I purchase something I like on my own….I want to spread the word about it period. I understand that sometimes it is just too expensive to supply writers with samples.
