I Put Glitter on My Tires

When it comes to vehicles, I tend to be a minimalist. I’m not into the bright colors, add-ons, fancy lights, etc. If I were to pay for any vehicles add-ons it might be tinted windows. BUT that’s not to say I don’t like to add little touches to make my vehicle my own.

A while back I saw posts about a temporary spray you could put on your tires to make it glittery. I thought, that could be fun right? Black Magic tire color is the temporary touch I like without the commitment. I had bought some but had been hesitant to use it. Actually when I bought it, it was a pourable that came with a sponge to apply it. I can’t decide if I like it or not. It’s not as glittery as I thought it would be but I’m kinda glad about that because I’m not a super flashy person.

Yea it’s fun but it also gives me the opportunity do a good check of my tires. Proper tire maintenance can add life to your tires. That includes tire rotation. After all, even with glitter on them they won’t look any better if they’re flat.

Sambucol Black Elderberry for a Back to School Immune Boost

I had heard about the benefits that elderberry could offer for the immune system a couple years ago. While on a trip to NC about 2 years ago I came across a little tent at a farmer’s market. They made their own elderberry syrup. The woman who makes and sells it was very enthusiastic and believed in her product. I bought a bottle to try. I ended up seeing first hand how the product helped. The kids were lining up eagerly to get their daily spoonful because they liked the taste so much. Unfortunately they didn’t their bottles to Pennsylvania. I tried to find a suitable alternative but everything fell short until I tried Sambucol Black Elderberry.

Sambucol Black Elderberry comes in a variety of forms too: Pastilles (lozenges), gummies, liquid, and dissolving tabs. They have an amazing taste that my kids look forward to. With the start of the school year, I’ve been making sure everyone gets their daily dose.

Tryazon gave me the opportunity to have a Sambucol Back to School Healthy Party. Of course, I wasn’t going to turn that down! My guests and I got to sample the products, learn about the products, and have a good time with it.

Back to School seems to be the time that our family always gets sick. But not this year. I’ve been fall cleaning and making sure my kids get their daily dose of Sambucol Black Elderberry. Sambucol isn’t just for back to school season though. It’s great for cold and flu season too. I like to take it when I’m feeling a little “bleh” like maybe I could be catching something. Or if we were around someone that was sick.

I handed out a bunch of coupons at my party but I still have a few left. If you’d like to try Sambucol for yourself, just comment below letting me know you’d like one and I’ll happily send out a $2 off coupon for you. They don’t expire until 6/30/2021

Otherwise you can use the store locator to find Sambucol products near you. Or find Sambucol products on Amazon.


Succulents Delivered Monthly with Succulents Box + Coupon Code

Up until about maybe 10 years ago I didn’t really even know what a succulent was . Then I learned they were a type of plant. Then I learned that there are a variety of different kinds of succulents. Did you know that a cactus is a succulent? Cacti are a subgroup of the far-reaching category of succulents.

Even after learning about succulents I didn’t really understand why they were getting more and more popular. Then I started seeing crafts, decor, and other diy projects using succulents. I began to understand why.

I received 4 healthy succulents in a subscription box simply called Succulents box They came wrapped with care. Each had their own identification card so I could learn what type of succulents I had received.

It would be easy to create some natural-look centerpieces for a shower or garden party.

I have a friend that loves to create fairy gardens in different types of pots in her yard. She has this relaxing succulent zen garden that I just love.

She also made this whimsical fairy garden in what looks to be an old wooden trough. I’ve seen people make fairy gardens out of old stumps, regular flower pots, broken flower pots, and just about any other container that will hold some dirts.

Toucan Box gives kids hands on activities to do each month. It’s not just crafts, there are also games that encourage the kids to get active.

We received the May Toucan Box to review. My daughter loves stuff like this so she happily helped me to do a thorough review. The box included two craft activities that included a Nature Bag and Jelly Fish races. We did the nature bag first.

One of my daughter’s dreams is to become a “YouTuber” so she’d be thrilled to here some positive comments on her first narrated Youtube video!

After the nature bag was complete she could use it to take part in the seasonal nature bingo game that came with the kit. Kids can use the seasonably appropriate card to hunt for different items like sticks, acorns, leaves, spiders, etc. They can even collect some of the items in their bag if they would like. This is a fun way to get the kids active and exploring the world around them.

We Tried Colored Hair Wax + an Awesome Deal on Colored Hair Wax

My job doesn’t allow me to get too creative with my hair. According to the policy I can not have any “unnatural” hair colors. So pink hair or a blue streak is out of the question. That doesn’t mean sometimes I wouldn’t mind putting a few pink streaks in my hair in October or some blue streaks for school pride at my boys’ football games.

purple and gold colored hair wax

The colors are very vibrant in the container. It has a nice fresh scent as well. The consistency is more like a paste or whipped butter. Easy to smooth over your hands to work into your hair.

We had a trial the first day we got it.

The gold made my son’s hair look more like it had been frosted. The purple was a subtle purple in my daughter’s hair. My daughter has a dark blonde or sandy brown hair. So I was curious how the purple would look on my dark brunette hair.

I just did a few streaks up front to give it a try. I did have to use a little more than I did in my daughter hair because my hair is darker and because it’s thicker.

The Ponyfly colored hair wax washer out easy in the shower and wipes off the skin easily with a wash wash cloth. I found it easiest to apply it buy coating my hands and working it through the hair, adding more as needed. Then after enough is applied I took a comb to separate the hair so it wasn’t stuck together. A comb would slide right through and do the trick.

As far as hold, I’d say it has a medium hold. My son wanted his hair spiked up. The hair on the top of his head is pretty long. I got it to stand up a bit. I think if I added more I probably could have achieved it but I was lucky he let me do this much lol.

Ponyfly colored hair wax is already a reasonable price at $4.99 but you can save an additional 5% off with code: LUVSAVINGMONEY5 and going through this Dealspotr link
