My Favorite Summer Drink to Celebrate the Dog Days of Summer #KeepOnCruzin

The days are heating up! And I'm so disappointed, it's been such a lovely summer so with this week getting so warm I've been trying to think of how I can actually keep myself cool without overdoing ice cream and gluten-free beer.



As a Santa Cruz Organic blog ambassador, when I got some Santa Cruz Organics agua fresca, I couldn't wait to try something new to end my evenings. This is such a refreshing drink to have in the summer and it is highly recommended if you want to cool off!

The Santa Cruz Orgganic Agua Fresca beverages come in three different varieties - pomegranate, mango passionfruit, and grapefruit. They are USDA Organic, Non GMO Project Verified, and come at a reasonable price ofa bout $3.20 - $3.49.  Make sure you read more about it here! 



Best of all, I'm happy to announce that one of my lucky readers will win 2 bottles of Agua Fresca as the prize. Enter via Rafflecopter below. Ends 8/25. US Only.

How Groupon Can Save Your Summer! #GrouponCoupons #ad #spon

Having fun in the summer time can get a little....expensive. And I don't know about you but I tend to run out of ideas really fast when it comes to thinking of ways that I can have fun or help others have fun. Ha ha. 
So I wanted to point your attention in the direction of the amazing things you can do with Groupon to save YOUR summer. 
First we all know about Groupon deals right? Well that's just the beginning and if you haven't wandered into the world of Groupon any time recently than I highly HIGHLY recommend you do now.
1) Clearance sales.
There are a lot of things you can find at deep discounts over at the Groupon clearance sale section. Seriously if you have something in mind you need, check over there first. Like this tailgate quad chair. Or this banzai splash water slide. Or this quadcopter drone. 

2) Groupon Coupons 
But if you can't imagine buying something from Groupon in their clearance side, or if you have your sites on something specific, they have great…

HP Back to School Sale - What's Your Future Laptop? #HPBTS2016

Can it be that back to school is just around the corner? I just recently accepted that summer has begun!
I do have to say that I really miss the whole back to school lead up - from buying supplies to preparing for new starts and new teachers (or professors). It's just a fun process to me. And I know that technology matters SO much when it comes to making the grade, especially when I got to college it mattered a lot.  I remember all those online classes, I appreciated the existence of my laptop and being able to have access to good technology to help me with projects.
If this sounds like you or the kiddo in your life, I want to tell you about some GREAT deals that are happening with HP. They also have some pretty awesome deals going on for customizable laptops that are $699 or more (15% off anyone?). I love the idea of CUSTOMIZING my future laptop. By the way I'm very much into the idea of a touch screen laptop so this laptop is definitely in my future (I hope!)


I have some AM…

Is Culer Right For You? (My Review + Giveaway)

I had the chance to review the Culer Evaporative Cooler. Do you know what an evaporative cooler is? Well, if you don't know, it works very differently from an air conditioner. Evaporative coolers use water to extract heat from the air when it evaporates (which reduces the temperature of the air).  The Culer technology uses micro-droplets that simply flash evaporate which makes for better cooling.
I did a little research about evaporative coolers before using the "Culer" just to see how things would work differently for me. I found out that air flow is very important to making this work and so the opposite goes for an evaporative cooler than for an air conditioner. So, get those windows open and fans going!



So I set this up in the back bedroom that gets a pretty decent cross breeze. The Culer is really easy to set up. You just pour water into the back of it. I set it up so it coordinated with fans that I have in the window to really let the cooler air flow. 


The day that…
