Never Let Them See You Sweat!


You guys remember me telling you how I had the whole fiasco of me "losing" my bag on the way to Houston for All Star Weekend right? If you don't, you can read about it here. Well, during that whole f*ed up situation, I had to RUN. And yes I know everybody is on this whole "Black Girls Run" thing...but I don't! I know it is good for me but I seriously swore it off when I left the US Army. For reals.

But anywho, so of course by the time I reach my seat on the plane, luckily it was changed from 25C to 13C ( I honestly don't think I would have made it to the back of the plane without collapsing) I was drenched in sweat. But not from my underarms! Overshare I know, but this all has a point! I was wearing Dry Idea's New AdvanceDry Fresh deodorant.

As a person who doesn't even remember the last time I worked out, I do remember that for me, some deodorants just do not work. I'm not much of a fan of roll ons, but since I was sent this one to test, of course  I'm going to use it! DUH! I didn't, however have it in my carry-on since the bottle is over the 3 oz mark. Which wouldn't have mattered anyway since I didn't see my bag until the week after I returned home. Oh yeah. I did finally get my bag back.

I have reviewed a product from Dry Idea before and I must honestly say that this one dries much, much faster. Now I wouldn't speed race to put my shirt on immediately after application, but it does dry faster than the other one.

But guess what, should you win a coupon in THIS giveaway, you have a choice of the clear gel or the roll on. I bet I know which most of you would pick, but I won't take a survey LOL.

I have extremely sensitive skin, so I have to be careful about what I use on my delicate areas. This deodorant is hypoallergenic and is infused with Vitamin E. It is fast drying and leaves a silky-smooth feel. Not all clumps and bumps like you can get from some other brands. I'm sorry but you guys know exactly what I'm talking about!

The roll on is available in Unscented, Powder Fresh and Regular. The clear gel is available in Unscented and Powder Fresh.

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks! Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash! I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one. Here are what this product c

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh. She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes... After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard! She really enjoys Dial W

Holiday Party Etiquette

With the holidays coming up on us so fast, it’s only right that we talk party etiquette. I can only speak about Black party etiquette, so that’s what I will discuss here. I'm sure some of these rule can be applied across different cultures/ethnicities. If you are invited to a party, gathering, dinner, or the like, there are some things that you just don’t do. If we invited you, we must like you at least a little bit. That can end quickly. Here are some general rules of Black house gatherings that expand beyond the holidays. You’re welcome. Don’t assume all Black events start late. Yes…a lot of them do, but you don’t want to be the late one. If I tell you it starts at 3, I’ve most likely accounted for the lateness of my family members. We move on without them. Don’t be tardy for the party. Don’t show up empty handed. Even if you are told not to worry about bringing anything, bring something. Even if it’s a bottle of sparkling cider. There will be massive side eye if you s
