If you spend weeks getting ready for a long week vacation, you’re most likely have a mile long summer plans. Since my husband and I work, we do what we can – spend evenings grilling and playing water balloon fights and reserve weekends for travel and exploration. With the intense summer schedule, I often find myself looking forward to workweek for relaxation and some quiet time.
A busy working mom like myself often needs help to keep things going, and this week my relief came in a BabbleBoxx with a variety of summer essentials to keep things easy for me and fun for everyone in my family.
AfterShokz Trekz Air Open-Ear Headphones
Do you ever have to choose between an audiobook and listening to the world around you? When I wash the dishes, I enjoy the sweet sound of the latest mystery novel but how do I also keep a close ear to what is going on in my house that is anything but quiet? While Trekz Air headphones are inspired by the demands of elite and aspiring athletes, they also can be the headphones for a mom to rely on.
AfterShokz Trekz Air Open-Ear headphones are lightest and most organically designed open ear headphones to date, and with the titanium parts they not only fit more securely but sound better too.
This Canyon Red model is a deep earthy red hue and looks like nothing else I have around the house which means it is easy to spot even if I leave it on a kitchen table or a nightstand. These lightweight headphones also an excellent choice for hot sweaty summer days with a bud-free listening experience and a new level of comfort.
And while it might sound a little silly, my favorite feature will still be listening to my favorite podcasts, books, and music, while knowing exactly what’s going on in my house. Learn more about AfterShokz Trekz Air Headphones.
Brew Dr. Kombucha
What is your favorite summer drink that is full of flavor, great for hydration, and also great for the whole body? I grew up in Russia drinking Kvas all summer, and I couldn’t think of a better summer beverage until I tried Kombucha (a distant relative of Kvas). Kombucha is a fermented tea and Brew dr. Kombucha is live and active, 100% RAW and unpasteurized. Non-Alcoholic, Brew Dr. uses a form of non-heat distillation to gently extract the alcohol but keep the best ingredients – tasty, low sugar, low calorie, better-for-you beverage.
Clear Mind – Slightly sour, this flavor hints rosemary and sage. Each herb in the recipe is noted for its ability to assist in mental clarity and focus.
Strawberry Basil – a perfect summer flavor and my personal favorite. Strawberry Basil combines high-quality green tea with strawberries and two types of basil.
While it requires refrigeration (like most fermented beverages), having a bottle of Brew Dr. in a cooler on a trip to the pool and a family outing means better hydration and delicious taste. Learn more about Brew Dr. Kombucha flavors and ingredients at Brew Dr. Kombucha.
Heliocare® Daily Use Antioxidant Formula
Health and Summer – you need one to enjoy the other! I have to say that any supplement that gives me more energy is my friend. Heliocare contains Fernblock® PLE Technology, an exclusive and powerful antioxidant extract that is naturally derived from a tropical fern native to Central and South America (the extract of Polypodium leucotomos) that helps to eliminate free radicals to maintain younger-looking, more resilient skin*. 40’s might be the new 30′, but it sure takes a lot more to keep my skin looking and feeling young. Clinically proven, this dermatologist-recommended natural dietary supplement does just that by providing antioxidant effects on the skin. Heliocare Daily Capsules are Vegan, Gluten-free, Free of artificial dyes.
