Big Boots Lil’ Boots

Drake Dixon in Lil' Boots

A new cause has stomped its way to fame. Show your support for the troops by sporting a pair of work boots similar to those that the soldiers overseas wear. The Boot Campaign, which has its roots in Texas, sports the phrase, “When they come back, we give back.” The company is true to their words; 100% of the profits are donated to various charities that help soldiers dealing with posttraumatic stress disorder and other war-related injuries.

Most recently, the boot campaign has come out with Lil’ boots, a child-sized product perfect for the kid who wants to show his army parents some love. You can’t deny that these would be adorable on a toddler. (Plus, they’ll also probably last a lot longer then his ordinary sneakers!)

And for moms who want to support the cause, the Boot Campaign has a small t-shirt line and offers a few other products available for purchase.

Lean, Mean, Protein Machines!

Nutrition bars can be total lifesavers for busy moms, especially when you just don’t

have time to sit down for breakfast or you need an energy boost after an afternoon of toting around a toddler.  But many bars are just bland. Lucky for all you Moms, LUNA has recently released new flavors in its protein bar line that are absolutely delicious. The new concoctions are coated in chocolate and provide the body with significant doses of protein, folic acid, vitamin d, and iron. The major difference between these protein bars and LUNA’s Whole Nutrition products, is that the protein bars are made up of all natural ingredients and supplies your body with a few extra grams of protein.

The only problem with these tasty little treats? They’re so good, you’ll never be able to stop at just one. Thankfully they’re under 200 calories a pop.

You can pick them up here, at the LUNA website, or your local grocery store.

Would You Drink This?

Monday, January 31st, 2011


Is it an end of an era for energy drinks? The newest beverage buzz is all about relaxation drinks that say they calm the body and help you unwind after a long day. Some drinks even advertise that they help consumers fall asleep.

Frontier Beverage Company recently released a line of drinks called Unwind. The relaxation beverage comes in three lightly carbonated flavors: Goji Grape, Pom Berry, and Citrus Orange. They taste like flavored soda drinks, except it doesn’t pack a sugarcoated punch. The idea for these drinks is awesome – what mom couldn’t use a little help to relax after a long day? The question is, do they work? That’s up to you, but word of caution for mom’s trying to conceive, the drinks contain melatonin, which can increase the risk of developmental disorders.

So Moms, if you are “tired of being wired,” and need to relax from a long day with the kids would you give these anti –energy drinks a go?
