What I’m Wearing This Fall: Soybu for Fitness and Fashion (Giveaway)

If you’ve followed some of my posts in the past about fitness, you know that I’m almost as addicted to work-out wear as I am to actually working out! One of my favorite fitness clothing companies is Soybu. Their apparel is so comfortable and fashionable and the Uptempo tank has become my go-to race tank for 5 and 10K’s.

The great thing about companies that offer high-quality fitness attire like Soybu is that they also make casual clothing. I wore my Soybu black and white infinity scarf all around Paris this summer and my latest dress, the Oasis is going to become my wardrobe staple this fall.

I was so excited to be given the opportunity to review this dress in Storm Heather at no cost by Soybu. The Oasis has the same comfortable, breathable feel to the material that I love about my tanks and pants and I love how versatile it is… I can easily dress it up or down.

Can you see the cute ruched ¾ length sleeves on this dress? I tried three different looks by pairing it with different shoes and accessories:

  • Paired with sand-colored patent leather sandals (Tory Burch) and an infinity scarf (Soybu), for a relaxed, fun and chic look. Perfect for running errands on a Saturday afternoon.
  • Paired with tan boots (Nine West) and a chunky turquois necklace for a western feel. Great for a Saturday night out with friends.
  • Paired with pink ballet shoes with a small heel (Repetto), black leggings and a long necklace makes the outfit a little more dressy but still fun. Nice for a work meeting or volunteering up at the school.

This dress is form fitting. I’m 4’10” and wearing the small. As you can see, it hits me at about the knee.

I’m definitely going to wear this when I attend the Blog Elevated social media conference in a couple weeks. I’m excited about the other possibilities about this dress (I’m thinking…layers!) that also comes in a colorful pattern called Japanese Mums.

You can get this dress online in sizes XS-XL for $58.00, but how would you like to win one for FREE for yourself?!

Sprint Tri Success! (Massage Envy Review and Giveaway)

I did it!

 photo-746

On Monday I finished my first Sprint Triathlon – a 400 meter swim, 12 mile bike, 3.1 mile run event.

My friend, Tanya, and I have been training for most of the summer and I knew I still had SO much room for improvement, but I finished strong and…

It. Felt. Great.

DSC_0058

My swim was definitely my weakest link. I knew that going into it. I finished next to last (21st out of 22) in my age group (40-44 year old women). But then I picked up speed during transition and passed many people in the bike portion…moving up to 13th in my age group.

 DSC_0091

Then…the run.

It was one of the hottest runs I’ve ever done (it’s still summer in Houston!) and after the 12-mile bike ride my legs felt like bricks. I thought I was running close to 11 minute miles but I found out afterwards that my pace was 9:05! I finished the run in 8th place in my age group…11th place overall.

 DSC_0125

I’m hooked! Soon, I’m going to sign up for swim lessons and start working towards my next one.

People have asked me how I prepared. I didn’t follow any certain plan but two things I attribute to my success:

1. Having a friend to work out with. Working towards a common goal with Tanya helped me stay motivated, focused and made the process more fun. I couldn’t have done it without her.

2. Taking it a bit easy during the week before which included an hour-long massage!

I worked out intensely for an extended period of time, so taking it a bit easy the week before helped me regroup. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to be treated to a massage by my friends at Massage Envy Spa in Houston. They treated me to a 60-minute massage at one of their 29 Houston locations. It was a great experience.

massage envy

The timing for their invitation was perfect. I had no idea how much I needed it until I was done! I thought I’d be in for a relaxing experience…which it was. But when you arrive at Massage Envy you fill out paperwork that helps them get to know your needs and what areas to work on. When they found out that I was preparing to race, they paired me up with a massage therapist, Melissa, who has experience with stretching and deep muscle massage.

The experience was almost like a combination of yoga, stretching and massage. She worked out the kinks in my shoulders (from leaning over on my bike’s aerobars), released the build-up of lactic acid in my legs and stretched out my muscles. It felt so good. I truly felt like she was helping my body heal and prepare for Monday’s event.

One of the reasons I don’t get massages more often is because of the cost. Massages at most spas can be very expensive but Massage Envy Spa offers member clients a monthly massage  for just $59.00, plus any additional massages for the month at just $39.00. While they offer massage at a discounted price, the visit for me was even better than I had experienced at some spas that charge two or three times the amount.

The environment was relaxing (the tranquil water-fall room was so peaceful!), the staff was knowledgable, experienced and caring (they asked me questions about the race and cheered me on…even the folks who worked at the front desk!) and Melissa (my massage therapist) was a pro.

 photo-745

Thank you, Melissa, for taking my health in your hands and taking good care of me last week. I know that I was better prepared for my big day because of your help!

Whether you are preparing for an athletic event, have a problem area that needs addressing or just want to relax and nurture your body and soul, I highly recommend Massage Envy Spa. A great day to go to Massage Envy would be September 18, 2013 when the 29 Houston-area Massage Envy Spas will donate $10 from every one-hour massage or facial to the Arthritis Foundation during their Healing Hands for Arthritis Event.

A Giveaway!

How would you like to be treated to a free massage? Thanks to Massage Envy, one Still Living The Dream reader in Houston will score a free 1-hour massage. All you have to do is leave a comment below telling me why you need to relax. One person will be selected at random on Wednesday, September 11, 2013, at 11:59 p.m. CST to receive a massage at one of Massage Envy Spa’s 29 Houston locations.

My Kids Make Me Smile! – A #FABsmile Giveaway!

Summer is almost over which is really bittersweet. While it will be good for the kids to get back to a routine and I personally love the fall season in general, I also enjoy the extra time I get to spend with my kids during the long break from school.

With less than two weeks until school starts, I decided to take the kids on a last soiree to enjoy the sun and sand in Galveston last weekend. While I was packing I asked my kids Jackson and Annie, to bring me their toothbrushes. When they finally brought them to me, I was shocked. The condition of these brushes made it clear to me that they were being used way past their “expiration” date. Matted down bristles with reminents of old toothpaste caked on the bottom. Um – gross.

The American Dental Association recommends flossing every day and changing out your toothbrush every three months. Clearly these were way older than three months and there wasn’t even a bit of floss to be found in the kid’s bathroom. Pretty weird that they didn’t tell me we were out, right?!

Not my best “Mother of the Year” moment! But in my defense, it is hard to remember to change toothbrushes out regularly….right?

Luckily I had heard about a unique program that makes it easy for you to have floss and new toothbrushes on hand. My friends at FlossandBrush.com provided me with a free kit which included a new toothbrush and roll of floss for each of my family members to try out. The clean teeth gods must have been looking out for me because the package of dental goodness arrived the day before we left for our overnight trip!

For just $1.00 per month, per person, FlossandBrush.com ships a box of fresh, quality toothbrushes and floss to your home every quarter. Shipping is only $1.00 per person, but orders of three or more brushes ship for free!

You don’t have to think about when it’s time to get a new brush or count on the kids to tell you when you are out of floss, they just arrive. They offer four different packages including one for adults, one for youth and one for small children that each include an age-appropriate toothbrush and mint, waxed floss…plus a package for $2.00 a month that also includes a carbamide peroxide whitening gel with potassium nitrate (which helps eliminate sensitivity) that can be used with your own tray or one you can purchase separetely from them. By the way Still Living The Dream readers can purchase a whitening tray from FlossandBrush.com for 25 percent off! Just use code “tray25” when you check out. You can find the whitening trays online here.

photo-737

We received GUM brand toothbrushes (all in different colors which makes it easy to know which one belongs to each of us) and 60 yards of minty floss.

 photo-736

Seeing my kids smile makes me happy. Knowing that because of FlossandBrush.com I might have a chance at winning Mother of the Year (or at least regarding good oral hygiene!) NEXT year makes me feel like a better parent.

A Giveaway!

How would you like to win a FlossandBrush.com Prize Package worth $107.00?! One, lucky Still Living The Dream reader will receive both a free annual FAB  membership (quarterly toothbrush and floss delivered to your door) AND a free annual FAB plus White4Life Membership (FAB’s professional grade whitening gel to be used in a custom whitening tray provided by you).

Getting Relief From Spring Allergies (Giveaway)

Ah, Spring time in Houston….it can be a beautiful thing.

The sun is shining, the weather is nice (not too hot, not too cold) … perfect for enjoying the outdoors with my family.

Or is it?!

Unfortunately my favorite time of the year brings along some of the worst allergens and my big, beautiful Oak tree in my front yard is one of the biggest culprits!

I’ve suffered from them for as long as I’ve lived here. Getting them under control is on my life list and I’ve blogged about my experience with getting tested. For about a year and half I’ve been getting weekly shots in order to prevent suffering from symptoms related to allergies and I’m really happy to report that things are getting better. This spring has been less severe for me, but I still have some symptoms that cause me problems.

SPRING

I talked with VSP Vision Care optometrist, Dr. Jing Han, who is based in Folsom, California, at Healthy Eyes Optometry to find out how seasonal allergies can impact eyes and what people can do to help them through the Spring allergy season.

Jenn: What symptoms do most patients experience from allergies regarding eyes

Dr. Han: Symptoms include itching, watery eyes, swelling and redness. They are generally not dangerous to the eyes but can be extremely uncomfortable if left untreated. There are some bacterial infections that can be mistaken as an allergic reaction that are very dangerous, like pre-septal cellulitis and orbital cellulitis, which need immediate attention. This is why it is important to have your eyes checked by an optometrist in order to rule out any symptoms that could be a sign of a more serious condition.

Jenn: Is there anything that people should be mindful of when thinking about over-the-counter allergy remedies/treatments in relation to eye health?

Dr. Han: Although there are many over-the-counter irritation “relief” eye drops to choose from, not all are meant to serve as an allergy remedy. I love it when my patients just call or e-mail me to ask what over-the-counter remedies is best for them specially. My response typically is one or two different brands that you can get over-the-counter, but I also take that opportunity to let them know that there are prescription allergy eye drops that are usually more effective. Ask your optometrist before you start using any eye medications.

Jenn: What can we do to protect our eyes during allergy season this spring?

Dr. Han: Be mindful of what you may be allergic to and try to avoid those things, always wash your hands to remove allergens before handling contacts or touching near your eyes and wear sunglasses! Sunglasses provide a barrier from allergens while also blocking harmful UV light.

Personally, I don’t ever go outside without sunglasses on. My eyes have always been a bit sensitive to sunlight. Dr. Han said that light-colored eyes allow more light rays to reach the retina, because there is less pigment in the iris to absorb them. As a result people (like me) experience more brightness from the same amount of sunlight. Interesting!

Do you need a stylish way to protect your eyes during allergy season? A lucky Still Living The Dream reader can follow Dr. Han’s advice AND look great doing it with a free pair of designer sunglasses valued at $110.00! Just leave a comment about how you deal with seasonal allergies. A winner will be selected at random May 2, 2013, at 11:59 CST.

My Daughter’s Artwork On A Customized iPhone Case (Giveaway)

In Texas, we take the rodeo pretty seriously. In addition to other student accomplishments, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo also celebrates that artistic talents of area students and each year they display the top artwork representing each school district at the show.

I’m a proud mama!

annies artwork cropped

Annie’s artwork was sent by her elementary school to the school district art display at the beginning of this year. She was one of only 10 students at her school whose rode0-themed artwork was selected and she received second place among all the first-graders in the district.

While her masterpiece wasn’t selected to represent our school district at the rodeo, it won first place in my heart and is proudly displayed in our home. I mean, just look at that cute stunt-rider cowgirl. The cuteness!

Recently, I found a fun way to take her precious painting with me where ever I go.

GetUncommon is an online company that offers many ready-made or customized cases for Apple products. They offer cases for the iPad and iPod Touch as well as the different models of iPhones and MacBooks. It took me just minutes to upload Annie’s art and select one of the cases for my specific iPhone. Then just a couple days later, I received the case in the mail. You can check out the process here on Youtube.

 cell phone case

I picked the Black Bezel Deflector for my iPhone 4 because of it’s one-piece, snap-on, slim fit. I really liked the Clearly and Permafrost choices as well, but because you can see the Apple on the phone through the case with these selections, the logo would have hit square in the face of Annie’s cowgirl! They also have a more durable case option and really, all four cases looked great. You just need to pick which is best for your design and your lifestyle.

I love how the photo of her artwork wraps around the sides of the case and how sharp the image is. I’ve gotten so many compliments on it from people everywhere I go. I think this would make a great Mother’s Day present. Hint to my husband: I want another one featuring my son’s artwork so I can change them out! 

A Giveaway!
How would you like to win $50 from GetUncommon to spend on a personalized Apple product of your very own? Just leave me a comment about how you would customize your cell phone if you won. A winner will be selected at random on May 1, 2013, at 11:59 p.m. CST.

Serious Sleep with Dohm White Noise Machine (Giveaway)

If you read my Sleepless in Houston post yesterday, you know I’m trying to tame the beast and fight insomnia. It’s not easy, but I’ve had success with some tools I want to share with you.

Dohm

Through the National Sleep Foundation, I learned about the Dohm, a sound conditioner/white noise machine that is all about serious sleep. This little machine packs a mighty punch and has helped me tremendously over the last couple of weeks.

According to my new friends at Marpac (the makers of the Dohm) white noise works sort of like the light spectrum. The color white is the presence of all colors. In sound, white noise means it has all frequencies of sound. So to have effective sound masking, you need to have a machine, such as the Dohm, that creates white noise blocking sound at all levels of the sound spectrum.

I’ve had sound machines in the past but they never really worked for me. I found out that white noise is more effective than rain showers and nature sounds because of it’s purity. Other sound machines on the market use circuit board technology (digital recordings that have a short MP3 recording on a circuit chip). This recording plays continuously in a digital loop which the human brain can pick up on, so you don’t rest as deeply as with a machine like The Dohm – which is actually the only electromechanical sound conditioner on the market.

 my dohm

What Did I Think?

I turned The Dohm on the first night I had it, anxious to see what difference it would make. My husband asked what it was and then commented about how it was loud and he would never be able to fall asleep with it on. Four minutes later (not five, FOUR) he was snoring. Sound asleep.

What made my heart happy was that I wasn’t far behind him! The Dohm works by blocking out all the extraneous noises that can keep us awake (snoring spouses anyone?) For me, what I found is it also helps block out the “quiet”. Annoying noises keep me awake but I can’t sleep with total silence either (when Ed falls asleep watching TV on the couch).

Crazy, right?

The steadiness stream of white noise (it’s not on a timer, so it works all night) really helped lull and keep me asleep. I’m not sleeping the entire night, but when I wake up now I stay in bed (fighting the urge to go work or hot glue something to the wall) and The Dohm helps mask the noises in the house until I drift off again. While this isn’t the only item that is making my bedroom more sleep friendly lately, it’s definitely one of my favorites and I’m packing this bad boy up and taking it with me when I travel next month!

I’ve talked a lot about diet and exercise on my journey to good health, but it’s time for me to take a stand and get some sleep…which I’m finding out is just as important  – even for weight loss.

The Dohm retails for $59.99 but Still Living The Dream readers can get 10% off any purchase with the code BLISSDOM at www.Marpac.com. (Valid through 4/16/2014. One per customer.)

 

A Giveaway!

So what do think? Are you ready to take a stand and go to sleep? How about a FREE Dohm to help you ? Just leave a comment below with the night time noise that drives you bonkers (snoring spouse? partying neighbors?) to enter. Marpac will be awarding TWO lucky, Still Living The Dream readers a Dohm sound conditioner/white noise machine for their very own! Winners will be selected at random on Monday, May 6, 2013, at 11:59 CST.
