SOL REPUBLIC Deck Review and Giveaway!


I’m back from my crazy BlogHer weekend, and I will get more pics and info up on that soon, however we have some important biz today. First. Go enter the Paypal Cash Giveaway, a winner will be picked in a couple days!

Second, I have another giveaway for ya!!!

I know you know SOL REPUBLIC‘s blue tooth speaker, DECK.

You’ve seen their commercial I’m sure:

Well, I had the opportunity to use this deck and I LOVE it. So did my brother Gar, because he stole it and now has it down in Florida and told me he takes it to the beach all the time. #jealous.

So it’s a speaker that connects to your phone/tablet/computer via bluetooth, and it has this cool thing called “heist mode” where multiple devices can be connected at once, and you can ‘hijack’ the deck and play your music…(just like in the commercial above)

I’m usually not the most technologically up to date, I mean you know I had my old phone for a billion years before I upgraded to my galaxy. This lil gadget though…I kinda love it.


So, last year at Blogher I won a speaker similar to the SOL REPUBLIC Deck. Let me just say, all bluetooth speakers are not created equal. My speaker skips and auto-disconnects from my phone/computer, unless it’s plugged in! (Kinda missing the point of the bluetooth capability.)

The Deck never skips, always connects immediately, and has more features (including the heist mode) plus it’s sleeker looking. It comes in a billion colors to appease everyone’s taste, but I was given the black on black version, and it’s perfect. If I wanted to keep it out at all times just to have a speaker in the kitchen while I cook, it would just blend in.


While we were in Florida we had pool parties often. This little deck put in some work. It is small but super loud. Gar also used it when he was watching netflix on his tablet. He would have his tablet in front of him, and the deck behind his head on the back of the couch so he could get music that was “surround sound”esque. LOL

I would recommend this for families that are outdoors often, beachgoers, teens of course, and gadget lovers.

You can buy it at your local Radio Shack ($199) or you can win it below!

Simple Skincare Review and Giveaway


I’m officially mad at anyone who’s bee using Simple Skincare products and keeping it a secret from me!

I got the chance to try them and I officially LOVE the products that I’ve tried so far. How did I not know about this brand before?!

With squeezing workouts into my busy day, I don’t get a chance to shower immediately afterward. I have been using the cleansing facial wipes and I really like them. I also got a chance to try their light moisturizer with SPF 15 and it’s one of the few lotions that contain SPF and doesn’t make my brown skin look grey and ashen. I’m digging it. Plus it goes on so light and smooth, and the scent mildly reminds me of vacation.

The day/night cream wasn’t as thick as I expected, but it made my skin feel great. I am looking forward to trying the other items in the package I received. Not sure how the gel moisturizer will work on my already super dry skin but with how well the other products have worked so far, I have high hopes.

Simple Skincare conducted a survey of women in big cities around the country and found a few interesting behaviors.  Example: 27% of women say they’ve gone 2 days without washing their face. Have you ever done that? Other findings of the survey found that women in big cities are really taking steps to protect their skin through their daily behaviors, like avoiding stress, working out, avoiding salty foods, etc. I love how women are actively taking steps to keep themselves healthy inside and out!

Also kinda nice that Simple Skincare is thinking about us ladies dealing with big city issues that take a toll on our skin.

Well, now the fun part. A giveaway!!

You’ve got a chance to win the same goodie bag I received including: 

  • Simple Ultra-Light Gel Moisturizer ($10.99);
  • Simple Nourishing 24-Hour Day/Night Cream ($10.99);
  • Simple Protecting Light Moisturizer with SPF 15 ($10.99);
  • Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes ($5.99);
  • Simple Eye Make-up Remover Pads ($6.99); and
  • Simple Foaming Facial Wash ($6.99)

Enter below and GOOD LUCK!!

Beating Winter’s Dryness with Suave Professionals®

2072-669797-B_L_P_MoroccnInfusionLotion_300x300 Hey girls, How does your skin respond to winter? My skin is already dry naturally, but the cold weather and lack of humidity makes it even worse. I have to lotion multiple times a day or I’ll get itchy. (And I think Roey has inherited this trait too.) I already told you about my love affair with Suave products. They’re always the right price and work very well on my skin and hair. John even loves them too. (And by loves I mean he doesn’t grumble when I replace his empty bottles of products with the new full bottles of Suave.)

Suave Professionals® is my favorite part of the range because they work exactly the same as the premium brands without the premium price tag. You see Moroccan oil (Argan Oil) everywhere these days, and now Suave has two new Moroccan Infused products that I’m enjoying. The Body Lotion is already a fave. I love the smell, and it works well (up to 24 hours of radiant, non-greasy hydration).

I think I want to keep it in the bathroom to use after I wash my hands, instead of in the bedroom, because then I’ll use more of it and can get wafts of the light, luxurious smell more often. It absorbs really fast and is non-greasy, so I’m not greasing up the doorknob or have to open the door before I lotion my hands. (Yes…I’m very particular about some things… don’t get me started on the process of picking out a kettle…) Bonus. I think it may even taste good because I keep catching Roey trying to eat it. :)

Rohan Loves Suave

I have a love/hate relationship with dry body oil sprays but so far the Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion Dry Body Oil Spray is on my love list so far. I haven’t used it alone on bare skin yet. I’ve only used it to “seal” in the moisture all over my body after using the body lotion. (The same way I do with using an oil after a moisturizer to seal in moisture on my hair.) It’s non-greasy formula works well for me. Since I’m SUPER dry, especially in the winter months, I don’t think I’ll try to use it alone until the summer.

Have you tried the Suave Professionals® Moroccan Infusion Body Care line yet?

Are you an argan oil fan?

And now…..for a giveaway!!! For a chance to win a $1,000 gift card, let me know which of the Suave Professionals® Moroccan Infusion Body Care products you would most like to try.
