Hack for a Healthy and Happy School Year

This post has been sponsored by Renew Life® . All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Summer is almost over and our focus is slowly shifting from summer plans to back- to- school planning. While it seems that most of our back- to- school prep is about supplies and outfits, I have made it a mission to think beyond that. For me, it is important to think about my little one’s health, and with Renew Life® products, it is easy to keep little ones healthy and happy for the new school year! Renew Life Kids Daily Boost Probiotic, for instance, is at the top of our back- to- school list this year.

I’ve added this probiotic supplement powder stick to my little one’s morning routine, because it provides everyday support for my little one’s digestive and immune health. By simply giving her one packet per day, I can prepare her for a healthy and strong start for the new school year.

As moms we worry about ingredients, but the Kids Daily Boost is free of gluten and soy. It is very convenient because of its fast-melting powder form. It tastes like fruit punch, which makes it something that my little one looks forward to. It contains 10 billion guaranteed live cultures per serving, so it makes me feel confident about her digestive health.

Now, back to school also affects me and for that reason, I have added Renew Life Ultimate Flora Women’s Care Probiotic 25 Billion to my morning routine as well. For me, caring about my digestive system is a form of self-care. Including probiotics to my routine truly improves my overall lifestyle. I feel more energetic and motivated to improve other aspects of my lifestyle, too.

Back to School with kid-approved Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars

 This post is sponsored by Nature's Bakery but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

School starts in less than a month! And I can hardly believe how quickly summer has gone by. As I wrap my head around the fact that school will be here in no time, I’ve decided to get a jumpstart on back-to-school planning.

For me, planning goes beyond the backpack, clothes and supplies. Breakfast, lunch and snacks are of major importance to me in planning our back-to-school routine. My little one’s nutrition is one area where I do not compromise! So, this school year, I will be adding Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars as an option for her lunch and snacks.

Raspberry Bars

These soft-baked bars are delicious and made with real fruit and whole grains. They are the perfect amount of sweet and Non GMO -Project verified, Certified vegan, Dairy Free, Soy Free and Nut Free. The fact that they have recognizable ingredients puts me at ease as a parent. I love being able to know that my little ones are eating healthy snacks. Plus, they are available in Certified Gluten Free varieties.

Because they’re conveniently packed, it’s easy for me to add them to lunchboxes and even enjoy when on-the-go. The different flavors are perfect for satisfying everyone’s tastebuds! While I love the Raspberry flavor, my little ones seem to like the Blueberry bars and my husband has claimed the Fig flavor as his go-to.

Gluten Free Blueberry Fig Bars

If you’re looking for an affordable, wholesome snack the entire family will enjoy look no further. These Fig Bars are so delicious that you can eat them any time of day; from breakfast, to lunch and snack time.

Summer BBQ Party with Ritas

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. The following content is intended for readers who are 21 or older. #CelebratorySips #HAVEARITA #CollectiveBias

 

When RITAS come through the door, the party starts! Whether I’m hosting a small get together or party, I like having options that are delicious and convenient to serve. RITAS are hassle-free, perfect for entertaining a crowd and a party must in my book. Plus, they’re the perfect pairing for all my BBQ favorites. And when I learned about the limited edition Pine-Apple-Rita, I knew I had to try this new flavor. I love all the flavors equally, but this may be my new favorite. It’s just so refreshing and everything about it says summer!

When it comes to the food, I think nothing says BBQ like American classics. That’s why my go-to options are ribs, potato salad, hot dogs and sometimes burgers. Because I live in Texas, Tex-Mex options are also a must! I’ll admit that I didn’t know much about the Tex-Mex cuisine until moving here. I learned quickly and a few foods grew on me. Some of my most favorites to serve during get togethers are sliced beef fajitas with warm tortillas and pico de gallo, while having delicious sides like corn and guacamole are true crowd pleasers. Doesn’t this sound like the perfect spread to pair with cold RITAS and their juicy flavors?

Family and friends say they come over for the food, but I know it’s RITAS that brings us together. And if you entertain often, this is the perfect package to have in the fridge. Hardly anyone can resist a margarita, and the fact that these are bottled and ready to enjoy makes them the star of any get together.

When you get your hands on your own RITAS party pack, take a photo with your Pine-Apple-Rita and post it on social media with the hashtag #ritascontest. You’ll have the chance to win a trip to Hawaii! Enter and learn more about the sweepstakes here.

Five Things To-Do in Galveston this Summer

I’ve talked about Galveston in the past and it’s because it is the closest beach town to Houston. I’ll admin that while the water is not clear blue like that of other beach towns, I still love Galveston. Even more I love the atmosphere, people, food and entertainment options. The people of Galveston are so laid back and easy going, exactly what you’d expect from residents of a beach town. The food is pretty darn good and I have a few spots that have become favorites, read about them here. As far as entertainment, there are plenty of options for adults and children alike. We like to keep it simple and the girls don’t mind, so we have done all of the below and had a blast.

1. Take the Bolivar Ferry –

This is favorite because on all occasions we have been able to spot dolphins. This is exiting for the girls because it’s not an animal that you see often. It is also really neat to travel with the seagulls who follow along in hopes of being fed. Though you’re not supposed to, people often sneak in a treat for them.

2. Eat at Pier 21 –

Being near the sea, means better seafood options. There are some all over Galveston but I have to say that some of the restaurants along Pier 21 have great options, in particular Fisherman’s Wharf. Don’t be fooled, their extensive menu has plenty of non-seafood items too.

3. Sit along the seawall –

Whether you sit along the benches or set up on the sand, it is nice to hang out by the seawall. Plus, it is also within walking distance of many popular sports in Galveston.

4. Visit Pleasure Pier –

Built on the grounds of a hotel that was swallowed by a hurricane, the pier is now one of Galveston’s top destinations. There’s a handful of fair-like games and rides, for grown ups and kids. It’s the perfect place for the entire family to have fun and create memories.

5. Visit Jamaica Beach –

This is one of my favorite beaches because you can drive on. And with our little ones, it is much more comfortable to park your car, pop the trunk open and set up right in front of it. You don’t have to worry about parking meters or traffic either. And you can stay and watch the sunset before heading back to your hotel or home in our case.

If you’re ever in Houston, make sure to stop by Galveston. It’s worth a visit! If you have ever visited, let me know what you did and what was your favorite part. I love talking about Galveston. 🙂

A Little Self-Care with Essential Body Bar

A Little Self-Care with Essential Body Bar

I must admit that I am the worse at self-care. And though self-care goes beyond the physical, I’d say that’s a good place to start. So, I visited Essential Body Bar to do a little self-care this month. I used my birthday as the perfect excuse to get away and try their body wrap and v-steam. Which, I will tell you more about…. But first, let me tell you a bit about the place.

When I walked in, I almost instantly felt relaxed. It smelled amazing and the ambiance was totally conducive to relaxation. I did walked around a bit and took a look at some of the products available for purchase. And there’s a bit of everything, from candles to hand creams – all handmade with ingredients that are good for you. The candles for instance, you can use them as a body butter. Yes, the wax is actually body butter! “They are using their medical background with the highest quality of client service to help heal your body naturally, while surrounding you with an elevated spa experience.”

What I thought was really neat about Essential Body Bar is its location. It is like going over to your girlfriends house for a spa day. Instead of your usual commercial store-front, where people constantly walk by and peep in, this location is more private. 

Memberships Available, starting at $69/month. – Use thirtyminusone for 10% off all services.

Infrared Body Wrap

The infrared body wrap is $99 and during the procedure, your skin is wrapped in a natural solution that detoxifies your body. The wrap also aids with blood pressure, insomnia, muscles aches/pains, cellulite, weight loss, boosting energy and reducing stress. 

Seaweed is one of the main ingredients and it helps with toning. It also helps increase your metabolism, as you can burn 600-2000 calories in one session. It may take up to three times to see results, as long as your maintain a healthy lifestyle.

V-Steam

V-Steam takes about 25 minutes and it’s recommended depending on what benefits you’re looking to get out of it. If it’s your cycles that are a concern, it can be done a week before the cycle. If fibroids are a concern, it’s recommended to do it a few times a month. 

While, I’m only sharing two services here, I have to tell you that they have an array of services to choose from. Letrice is very knowledgable and can walk you over any of the services available, as well as benefits. Make sure to give them a call and visit their site to schedule an appointment; don’t forget to take your girlfriends. 😉 And use code thirtyminusone, to get 10% off all services.
