Including granola to my healthy diet…

Written by lyricsmama on June 19, 2009 – 12:25 PM -

I’m trying to get myself and my family into healthier eating habits. That means less of the sugary, high fat, high calorie, so tasty but so bad for you foods are found in my home. I’m really trying to omit them and in place find some healthier foods that we can all still enjoy.

One of my favorite ‘healthy foods’ is granola, I’ve always been a fan, always loved it. My family though, not so much, if they’re eating any granola it’s usually a minor part granola to major parts of candy inside of it. Candy is fine, on the odd occasion but I’d rather there would be less candy and more dried fruit instead.

That’s why MixMyGranola has become my favorite place to get my granola from here on in. With the ability to choose what exactly goes into your MixMyGranola mix you’re bound to make something that’s tasty for just about anyone in your family. You can even name your own mix. My Wrestler’s Delight granola was meant to be on the healthier side and with the large variety of healthy 100% organic ingredients MixMyGranola offer’s it wasn’t a hard thing to do. Although you can still find some treats/candy to add to your granola, I opted to go for some dried fruit to bring that sweetness in instead.

My Wrestler’s Delight canister included: 100% Organic Muesli, Dried Plums, Amaranth Seeds, and Organic Coconut Shreds. The canister contains 8 servings of your custom made granola and also comes with a 100% money back guarantee. Which I’m sure you’ll never need to use. I’ve eaten my granola for breakfast with some non-fat milk and added a few fresh berries, as well as eaten it dry and its YUMMY either way. Even my two girls love the mix I came up with which is unusual since there’s no candy to be found.

I just am in love with the ability to create my own granola mix, it ensures that I can keep things healthy and I know exactly what’s going into my mix without relying on some store bought granola to hopefully have what I need. Go ahead and try it yourself, head over to MixMyGranola.com and see what you can come up with for yourself and your family.

WIN IT!!!

I’m so sure that you’ll fall in love with MixMyGranola I have a $20 Gift Certificate available to one of my lucky readers.

To enter, all you have to do is head over to the MixMyGranola website and tell me the ingredients you would choose for your very own granola.

Let Dad Live Like A Kid This Father’s Day…

Written by lyricsmama on June 3, 2009 – 10:20 AM -

Why not let Dad ‘live like a kid’ this Father’s Day? Who says that dad’s can’t have fun too? With Ginch Gonch and their super cute line of underwear men (dad’s included) can reminisce back to the days of their colorful fun underoo’s and ‘live like a kid’ once again.

So what is Ginch Gonch you ask? They’re the company that is forming a rebellion against the dull, colorless underwear most of us adults tend to wear. They combine humor and sexuality with funky, fashion-forward designs and have reinvented the underwear industry and is setting the newest trend.

Ginch Gonch believes in their ‘live like a kid’ philosophy and promotes fun, freedom of expression and diversity through their famous catch phrase “Regardless of your inches we cover you in our Ginches!” Their underwear is some of the cutest and sexiest things I’ve come across lately, and I’m not kidding. When my Ginch Gonch package arrived I was so excited to put the Weiner Eaters Night Weiner underwear on my hubby. This 4-way stretch cotton underwear form fits all the way around and also has a pillow tag in the back so there’s no more itching! Made from 95% Cotton and 5% Lycra these are not only super cute, but once hubby had them on, I found them super sexy!

Need to find that perfect Father’s Day gift just for your hubby, don’t pass these by it’s something you can both appreciate!

Although Ginch Gonch carries a wide range and variety of underwear for men, they also carry a women’s line as well. I am just in love with my Fire Trucks Back Draft panties; they’re so comfortable and cute at the same time. It doesn’t just stop there Ginch Gonch carries not only a wide variety of styles for both men and women in underwear but they also carry a cute variety of long johns as well. I received the Multiple Trucks Dumper Dude long johns and just like the underwear the long johns are made with a 4-way stretch cotton that form fits all the way around as well as the pillow tag in the back and made from 95% Cotton and 5% Lycra, these are also super comfortable and great for those cool nights camping this summer!

Ginch Gonch has to be one of my newest favorite companies, I love their philosophy and designs, and it gives you the fun and sexiness at the same time. To check out more of their designs as well as their newly launched Boys & Toys Bikes collection that features daredevil dirt bikers and motocross mayhem for both men and women visit www.ginchgonch.com.

You can also check out their blog and YouTube channel as well for more information and to view their latest styles and collections.

WIN IT!!

Ginch Gonch wants to have you ‘live like a kid’ as well. They’re allowing me to giveaway to one lucky reader a $50 Gift Certificate.

All you have to do for your chance to enter is head over to the Ginch Gonch website then come back and leave me a comment telling me which are your favorite pair of Ginch Gonch underwear or long johns? Once you’ve done that you’re welcome to enter for multiple other entries which can be found below:

Protect your peepers…

Written by lyricsmama on June 3, 2009 – 9:25 AM -

When summer comes around one of the things that we think of isn’t only our tans, but also the protection of our eyes. What about our children’s eyes? There are so many different sunglasses out there marketed towards children, but a lot of them aren’t up to par. They either break a few days after you’ve bought them, or you have a heck of a time trying to keep them on your child, no matter what their age.

Baby Banz Inc has a full line of products for both babies and children that give their eyes 100% UV protection all year long. To keep them on they have a soft, band around the sun glasses to keep them on your child’s eyes. The band comes with a Velcro to make it adjustable for babies, and just a soft band you can pull over your children’s heads for older kids.

The glasses are too cute, even with the bands around them they’re stylish at the same time and make kids feel like their ‘cool’ just like mommy and daddy when they’re wearing their shades. Baby Banz also has a 6 month limited warranty on their glasses, so if they break your covered. So far we haven’t had any issues with our Baby Banz glasses besides searching around the house to find them when someone misplaces them.

Baby Banz shades are also BPA and Phthalate free and made for children from babies up to age 10. All Baby Banz sunglasses are 100% UVA/UVB protected, made with durable polycarbonate, they’re also capable of being replaced with prescription lenses. These glasses are great and probably one of the best pairs I’ve had for either of my children, hands down these are the shades your children should be wearing.

Visit usa.babybanz.com to check out all the colorful stylish glasses for your child today.

Time again to update your wardrobe…

Written by lyricsmama on May 15, 2009 – 11:30 AM -

It’s that time of year again. Time for the warmer weather, time to shed those layers of clothing, put on the cooler outfits, the brighter colors and bare some more skin. Summer is on the way, and for a lot of us that brings a lot of fears about our wardrobe, and since no diet pill is going to help my wardrobe, it’s time to update! I don’t know about you but I’m super self conscious and finding clothing that flatters me and is still stylish at the same time is VERY important when it comes to my clothing and what I wear.

Once again SWAKdesigns.com has come to my attention with some great clothing and outfits for spring and summer, and well heck, they have clothing for all seasons that are reasonably priced, good quality and stylish at the same time. They cater to plus sizes and not just from a size 12 – 18, they carry a variety of sizes from 1 – 6x in all designs and styles.

There are so many choices from basic fashion elements, dresses, tops, skirts, pants and more. There’s something at SWAKdesigns that can fit anyone’s budgets and styles. I think that’s the one thing I’ve noticed when it comes to plus size clothing. A lot of the more fashionable quality clothing comes at a steep price that sometimes even I don’t want to pay. SWAKdesigns has quality clothing at a modest price so that every plus sized girl can afford to look good!

I managed to try out a few different items from their shop. My favorite piece is the Daphne sheer camo hooded top. When I first got this item I did notice a few things, there were a ton of stray threads and even a hole in the pocket seam. I immediately contacted SWAKdesigns and told them about the issue, they were on it and sent me a replacement within a few days that was in MUCH better condition. Great customer service, I didn’t even have to send the first top back to them. This is probably one of the most worn tops that I wear from week to week. It’s soft, comfortable and flattering. It comes in sizes 2 – 7X. This isn’t a baggy fitting shirt. It’s form fitting and very flattering.

I also received the Anastasia Interchangeable Wrap Top. This is a cool top. Have you ever had a top that fit you so perfectly you wish you could have that exact fit with multiple tops? Ever wish that perfect top could be dressed up to wear to a fancy gala in the evening or dressed down to go to brunch with the girls the very next morning? Or how about a top that would make you curves look completely amazing and the envy of many? This is the top that is a MUST HAVE in any girls wardrobe. You can check out the many different ways you can interchange this top by clicking here. My only issue is that as a short girl, this top doesn’t work too well with me, it’s more like a dress than a top, but it’s ok, I’ve re-worked it to work just perfectly for me.

I also received a pair of LPR Bootcut Denim jeans. I do find that their jeans fit a bit on the small size compared to my usual size of jeans. Also the only other suggestion I would make to SWAKdesigns is to have jeans for petite girls like myself, or have a variety of inseam sizes. As a short girl, my pair of LPR Bootcut Denim Jeans will have to be altered as they’re much too long for me to wear. However the jeans themselves are great, they have a slight stretch to them and are very comfortable and soft.

Buying online might not be the best experience at times, but I found my experience with SWAKdesigns to be great, great shipping times, great customer service and a great product. They not only ship to the USA either, check out their website www.swakdesigns.com for more information and great clothing.

WIN IT!!!!
