Bic Gel-ocity



I love trying new products and this new item from the Bic line is another keeper. The Gel-ocity Quick Dry gel pens are amazing. First of all they are in click form so no losing tops which is worth it's weight in gold alone. Yes I like them that much. I was sent a three pack of the pens, an activity sheet, and some coupons for free to share with friends and family. 


I wanted to get a bigger set of pens but all the stores carry are the old Bic Gel-ocity pens. They are not like the set I was sent which was a big bummer but I am hoping they get them in soon. I thought for sure these big box stores would carry this new item with back to school areas all set up, but not yet, so I am biding my time. I told my girls they can each get a set and I am getting one for myself, the rest of the coupons will be given to friends, family, and even strangers I meet in the store if they are interested in them. 


We all colored and decorated a bit on the activity sheet we were sent and this is how it turned out. The pens dry super quick no pen ink on our hands or fingers. From ages 6-45 no ink stained hands, this is awesome and a big plus for those who love to doodle, draw, decorate, journal, etc. My girls want Bic to put up more printable activity sheets, which I agree would be a great idea.

Cool relief fast




Ok so I don't workout all that much but when I do I really work up a sweat, and cooling down is a big way to keep feeling refreshed so you can workout longer. Having a cooling towel like this one from Furious Fitness is great to have on hand. You can use it for sports, exercise, work, or even on hot days when there is no air conditioner or fan in site. Also great for sunburns.

Just submerge in water, or even run under the tap, snap a few times and apply to area that needs to be cooled. This towel can be worn around neck, head, back, or even just used to wipe your face during and after exertion. 

Another great idea for this is for those who are going through menopause. I hear many older women who are going through it get hot flashes, well having this towel nearby might just cool them down during these very trying and uncomfortable times. 

I love to use this on hot nights when the power goes out to keep my family cool until the power is restored. I also like the included bag with clip so you can have it ready to use in a flash. 

The Furious Fitness #InstantCoolingTowel can be found at my affiliate link below.

Viatek-Arctica 20 & 30 oz Tumblers w/Lids Giveaway

Arctica 20 & 30 oz Tumblers w/Lids Giveaway
Presents The: Viatek Consumer Products
Arctica 20 & 30 oz Tumblers w/Lids Giveaway 2 - Winners 
Holiday Contest and Sweeps is excited to bring you two great products that will change the way you keep your drinks hot or cold. Viatek Consumer Products was kind enough to provide me with one of their Arctica Stainless Steel Vacuum-Insulated 20oz. Tumbler to do a review and giveaway, I am glad to say that two lucky winners will get a chance to own their very own Arctica Tumbler.
I would first of all like to thank all the amazing blogs that have joined in this giveaway to help promote it, from the dedicated co-host and non co-host, a big thank you goes out to you all.
Arctica 20 oz Tumbler W/ Clear Lid Your morning cup of Joe. Your afternoon iced tea. Hot or cold, don't leave home without this insulated tumbler. It keeps cold beverages from losing their cool and ensures hot ones stay hot. No more struggling with a stuck screw-top lid when you want to refill it either. Just pop it off. Its brushed stainless design looks sleek and professional and, our favorite, you can leave cleanup to the dishwasher. Arctica 30 oz Tumbler w/Clear Lid
The lid shown below can be purchased in several different colors such as red, orange, pink, green, blue and smoked. These can be purchased separately on the Viatek Website for a low price of $8.99 ea. This Tumbler is simply amazing, I conducted a test by pouring a fresh hot cup of coffee directly from the coffee pot and let it set for 7 hours. When I finally poured myself a cup of coffee from the Arctica it was as still as hot the second that I had poured it. In this test it defiantly gets 5 start rating. Let's Take A Look A Video On These Tumblers: For the second part of my test I filled the Arctica with ice and water and left it out in the hot car with temperatures that exceeded 100 degrees easily. After 7 hours I again poured me a cup of water from it to find that it was very cold and full of ice still. Once again,this tumbler gets another 5 star rating. For those whom travel or just want a reliable tumbler to keep your drinks hot or cold on the way to work or another place you wish, then this tumbler is a must have for you. Click here to Visit the Viatek Website for more great products!  Make sure you follow them on Social Media as well by following,liking or subscribing to their sites on the rafflecopter form.

Season 3 of HOME THE ADVENTURES OF TIP & OH



Season 3 Premieres Friday 8/11 on Netflix

Calling all Boovs and Humans! 

The intergalactic escapades of dynamic duo Tip and Oh reach new heights as these best friends head off on new adventures that push the residents of Earth and Boovsworld to their limits in all-new music-filled episodes of DreamWorks Home Adventures with Tip & Oh. There is no part of the galaxy that is out of reach as the pair find themselves on a mission to save Pig from a far off cat-planet, attending a wild alien prom, on safari on the plains of Boovsland and in a deep sea battle in the depths of Lake Michigan. 

My children and even I loved watching the movie Home. I can't believe it is already time for Season 3. Time goes by so quickly when you have children. Taking time to have special moments with your children, reading, playing, talking, and even watching a show like this can leave a lifetime of memories that you and your child will treasure. 

Check out a clip from Season 3 below.
