Strawberry Shortcake: Berry Best Friends
It’s friends first for Strawberry Shortcake and her favorite gal pals in Berry Best Friends! When Orange Blossom’s general store overflows with a new line of fruits and veggies, she tries to handle all of the details without any help from others, and, as a result, she’s exhausted! Strawberry is excited to be building a new marketplace, but has a tough time learning how to graciously say, “no, thank you.” Both soon learn that talking about what you need is the berry best thing to do. When the BFFs form a new band called Strawberry and the Sweet Beats, they’re all jazzed to head out on the road...except for Orange, who is afraid to admit that she doesn’t want to leave home. Once she tells her friends how she feels, she’s ready to set out for a rockin’ good time!

Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango Body Wash Review and Giveaway! (2 Winners) #GetNoticed

***Disclosure: The Dial brand provided me with a sample of Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango body wash to facilitate this review.  All opinions are my own.

I love doing product reviews on things that I can test out myself - not just for my kids.  Showering is one of my favorite things because I get 10 minutes or so of ME time.  I was thrilled to try out a new body wash from Dial.  This time I was sent the Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango Body Wash and boy do I love it!  When I first received the bottle, like I also do at the store, I opened it up to smell the scent and it's amazing!  I have always loved the scent of mango and coconuts.  It's such a tropical fragrance and reminds me of being on vacation!  All of us mommies could use a vacation, so why not pretend in the shower right?

Coconut water is a leading trend right now because it's known for it's rich antioxidants and electrolytes that help to provide replenishing hydration.  Mango is nutrient rich and adds to that tropical fresh scent that I love so much!
http://www.dialsoap.com/
I also love how well it lathers up in the shower.  It leaves my skin so fresh, fragrant and clean!  I also love how well it moisturizes my skin.  I typically have very dry skin and the Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango Body Wash does not dry out my skin like other body washes I have used in the past.  On the contrary my skin feels smooth and hydrated!  I simply love the Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango Body Wash and I'm confident that you will too!

BUY IT:

You can purchase Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango Body Wash at most major retailers.

5-hour ENERGY® Yummification Contest, Review and a Reader Giveaway!

**This is a sponsored post.  The 5-hour ENERGY® samples, gift card, information, and additional gift pack have been provided by the makers of 5-hour ENERGY®.  All opinions are 100% my own.

http://www.5hourenergy.com/index.asp

I am a super busy mom - like most other moms out there.  There are nights where I don't get to bed when I'd like because I am up working on a project or making sure the laundry and dishes are cleaned up.  I have to be up by 5:00 am every day to be alert before the first daycare child arrives.  I HAVE to have energy to keep up with the kids and do all of the tasks that I have planned for any given day.  Most days when I put the kids all down for their naps, I am very tempted to curl up on the couch and take a nap myself.  However nap time is the time when I have to get lots of other things done, so I don't usually have the luxury of taking a nap.  Well for those days I have a little helper and it's 5-hour ENERGY®!  Recently I was given a package of different flavors of 5-hour ENERGY® to try and it's been so handy to drink one when I've hit a wall and have no energy left.  This stuff really works!  After drinking one I feel more energized and can tackle all of my chores! 
http://www.5hourenergy.com/index.asp
Although the makers of 5-hour ENERGY® have created multiple flavors of this amazing energy drink, they know that the flavors can be kind of strong.  That's why they are encouraging users of their product to come up with different drink combinations.  In fact they have a contest going on right now and you could win a share of $100,000 if they select your drink as one of the winners!  They call it the Yummification Contest and to enter you just have to create a 60 second video of yourself mixing 5-hour ENERGY® with your favorite everyday beverage to come up with a super yummy drink that gives you energy.  Then you have to give your "Yummification" a name.  There are rules about what kind of beverages you should use.  They don't recommend mixing 5-hour ENERGY® with caffeinated beverages, alcoholic beverages or an other energy drinks or energy shots.  For fun I wanted to get in on the Yummification and decided to create my own beverage.  Click here for more information about the contest.

www.5houryummification.com

For my 5-hour ENERGY® Yummification drink I decided to make a strawberry smoothie.  First I started with a cup of strawberry yogurt, added some sliced strawberries and one cup of 2% milk.  I added a bit a ice and for the final touch the Berry flavor 5-hour ENERGY®!  It was DELICIOUS and kept me energized for hours!  I was able to get so much accomplished at nap time and had lots more energy to make dinner, take the kids to practice, finish up laundry and more.  I call my Yummification drink: "Mom's Strawberry Smoothie with a Kick!"  It's great for breakfast or even an afternoon pick me up drink!
http://www.5hourenergy.com/index.asp
