How I Go Hands Free on a Run

This site has affiliate links and sponsored content. Read my Disclosure Policy.

One major pet peeve of mine with running is finding a place to keep all my stuff... you know - keys, cash, ID, phone, etc.  Well, I found it!  DBelt-PRO keeps all my items secure and was designed with fitness and fashion in mind.  It works for both women and men for all kinds of activities from hiking, to running, or even cycling. 

It's made of 95% polyester and 5% spandex so it's great at whisking away moisture.  And even though the pocket is big enough to hold even the iPhone 6 PLUS it still won't allow it bouncing room which is very important for me.  There are 3 lined pockets and a hook hanger on the inside.  And this belt has a narrow side so it can be rotated to the front to avoid bumping your legs during any high knee workouts.   It also comes in so many great colors and sizes.
I love the DBelt Pro, it's so comfortable and I love how it hangs down more on my hips than on my waist.  I use it during running and yoga workouts.   I also love the fun color selection but of course the pink is my favorite!

Financial Independence for the 4th of July

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and Walmart Family Mobile.  All opinions are mine alone. #Save4Summer #Collectivebias

Ahh, good old Independence Day... a day we celebrate with fireworks, food, and friends/family.   But if you're like me, you may be celebrating another type of independence as well... financial independence.   That's right.   Now that I am debt free with credit cards, and we bought a house, I am looking forward to saving money this Summer since my spending is under control!  So how will I be doing that?   Well by switching over to Walmart Family Mobile and the Lowest Priced Unlimited Plans you can enjoy Unlimited Talk Text and Data/Web with up to 1G of 4G LTE data. Normally, bills suck my bank account dry during the summer with the electric bill, the amount of cell phone activity I do, and my grocery bill for entertaining purposes.  The Walmart Family Mobile service is $29.88/ month (for the first line) Unlimited Talk, Text & Data service plan which includes up to 1G of 4G LTE data. You can do so much with that, and still save money. But what should be done with that money? Well....

Have A Cook Out
Invite friends over and have some burgers on the grill and some ice cold beer! I like to sit on my porch with a glass of wine, friends, and cheeseburgers and chat the night away! If you ask everyone to bring their own drinks and a side dish,  the only expense you'll really have is  getting burgers!   I am using my LG Leon and my awesome data plan to invite everyone on my social media pages and text others to let them know! 

Get Outdoors
Enjoy yourself on a hike, or go swimming in a nearby (safe) lake or stream.  Use your phone like I do and take lots of photos and videos to document your adventures.  It's a great way to preserve memories. Once again, another free activity. 

Enjoy Fireworks
There are always fireworks around the 4th of July so make sure you look up the dates and times for your area!   It's a great way to get out and enjoy the evening with a great view.  Fireworks are always free so it's a great way to enjoy the holiday without spending money. 

If you are more low key, why not enjoy some gardening and redo some of the parts of your yard. Since we just moved into our house, I am doing lots of gardening.  I like taking photos of my progress and putting it on social media! Once again my awesome data plan allows me to do that and I save money every month which I can put towards stuff for the garden!

Disclaimer: All prices for phones and plans included in this post are accurate as of the date of posting; however, these prices are subject to change.  Please refer to or your local Walmart for current pricing.

You can find the LG Leon and other Walmart Family Mobile products in the mobile phone section at Walmart!

So I showed you how I will enjoy my summer and my extra money... now tell me what you will do!

Freshpet Has A Dry Dog Food Now!

This site has affiliate links and sponsored content. Read my Disclosure Policy.
For years, I've enjoyed using the refrigerated Freshpet foods for my dogs as treats and training rewards but now I'm excited to announce that they have a dry dog food line!
My pups enjoyed their Fresh Turkey Recipe and their Fresh Chicken Recipe.

They use 100% fresh meats (never pre processed or overcooked) and fruit and veggies that you can actually see in the bowl!   The ingredients are natural, no artificial preservatives and their one chicken flavor is also grain free which is great because a lot of dogs have issues with that!    You can find these at Target right now.
I can't believe how much my dogs loved this food!   It was very easy for them to chew and even my picky eater Rocky scarfed his down!   
I love that there are important vitamins and minerals in this food too so that I know my babies are getting the nutrition they need.   My dogs haven't had one issue with this food since they've been eating it and I love that they have shiny coats and great energy levels.
Definitely check out the new dry dog food from Freshpet!

It's an Oral Hygiene Miracle for Dogs!

This site has affiliate links and sponsored content. Read my Disclosure Policy.

I don't know about you but my dogs are not a fan of getting their teeth brushed.  The thing is, Chihuahuas are prone to oral health issues, which are directly tied to heart problems so it's important that I do whatever I can to keep tartar and plaque at bay.

pawTree Dental Sticks are a great choice when it comes to keeping my Chihuahua's mouths fresh and pleasant!  These Dental Sticks are great for Rocky since he despises having his teeth brushed.  These help control plaque and tartar on his teeth while freshening his breath.  They are grain free with no corn, wheat, soy, fillers, artificial colors or flavors and are natural and wholesome.  They were developed by a veterinarian and are made proudly I the USA!

They keep my pups occupied for a good amount of time and I don't have to worry about them choking or anything.   I have noticed much fresher breath in all my dog's mouths and this is a great treat to give them that doubles as a nutritious healthy supplement to their everyday life!! 

Do you guys struggle to clean your dog's teeth?

Eye Eraser from Michael Todd - Available at ULTA Beauty!

This site has affiliate links and sponsored content. Read my Disclosure Policy.

 If you don't already know about Michael Todd, it's basically an award winning line  of skincare products known for being organic based and a great source of anti-aging treatment for your skin.  

But now they have partnered exclusively with ULTA Beauty to bring you this awesome little beauty tool called the Eye Eraser DUO.

One of the new products is a personal favorite of mine - the Eye Eraser Anti-aging Infusion Device. It's the World's First Triplex Cellular Infusion Technology and actually uses sonic, ionic, and thermal heating to infuse the eye serum into the deeper layers of your skin.  That actually accelerates the anti-aging process to give you brighter, younger looking eyes even faster.  It's so soothing because the warming action makes the pore lining relax so it can absorb the product better.  I noticed it's improved the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for me over the past few weeks.  And it promotes natural collagen and elastin formation and gently infuses the serum into your skin at over 150 sonic movements per second.

I love the perfect size of this device and it's very easy to use on the go when travelling and you don't want a product that takes up a lot of room in your makeup bag.

Our Screened In Porch Decor

This site has affiliate links and sponsored content. Read my Disclosure Policy.

The official home tour is not ready for the blog yet but I am just so excited about the back porch that I couldn't wait any longer.   I also wanted to share the magical power of rugs. Fab Habitat has some beautiful rugs that are eco conscious and add value to homes everywhere.   The designs are so beautiful and the company and its logo even express their guiding principles of fair trade and responsibility for the environment.  

I have 2 different sections of our porch. The first is for dining.   It has a Venice Rug from Fab Habitat that I blogged about before here.  It's washable with a hose, and it's great for indoor outdoor use as well as being lightweight.

But in the lounging area of the porch I put a green and white striped rug from the Estate Collection under the coffee table.  It's made from 100% Polypropylene and is hand woven.  It can easily be hosed off and line dried and it even is UV stabilized to minimize fading.

It's so soft and comfortable and is the perfect accent to our screen porch.

What do you guys think?
