What I'm Bringing to BlogHer 2014

BlogHer 2014 Selfiebration 

Okay, it's time to start thinking about what I'm bringing to BlogHer 2014. Last year I think I did pretty good in terms of what I packed, but I couldn't help but feel as though I could have done better. Here's what I think I'm going to do this time around:

First, I was very happy with my decision to wear flat shoes for the parties. Will definitely be purchasing another pair of black flats for this year's parties. This is especially necessary this time around because I'm dealing with a newly diagnosed case of plantar faciitis. Awesome- NOT! The rest of the conference I'll probably be in the comfiest shoes I can find. I'm thinking tennis shoes.

As for day wear. Jeans it is! I'll be wearing an Elite Travel shirt during the days because I want to promote the business I blog a lot for. By the way- if you need any kind of travel- call Elite Travel at 866-726-9090 and tell them The Famous Ashley Grant sent you. Seriously! They offer a price match guarantee, they protect you better than the online booking sites and they are just plain amazing!

Night wear. I'll most likely wear a dress again to each of the parties. Last year I had these awesome dresses that folded up to hardly anything in my suitcase. All I had to do was hang them during the day before wearing them and they didn't really have any wrinkles! (Note to self- get more of THOSE types of dresses)

That's really it in terms of clothes. Of course I'll bring something to sleep in, but I can't think of a reason to bring more clothes than this...

As for luggage- last year someone told me to be sure and bring an empty duffle bag for all the swag I would likely receive. Thank goodness I listened to this or I would have found myself buying a bag to go home with. I was in awe of how many brands gave me stuff without me even having to ask for it. It's that stuff that has provided me with a lot of review content lately. LOVE IT!

I'll skip the jewelry this year because it was more of a hassle than it was worth. Or I'll just bring costume jewelry that I don't mind throwing away.

If you are going, what are you bringing to BlogHer?

8 Weeks Until BlogHer!

BlogHer 2014 Selfiebration 



Now that I have made it official by announcing I am officially going to the 2014 BlogHer Conference I feel even more excited about my countdown. Today is 8 weeks or 56 days until the conference and I can not wait! I'm so frikkin stoked I can't even explain it!!!

I fly to San Jose, California on Thursday 7/24/14 early in the morning and will arrive there at about 2 p.m. their time.
I'm staying in a hotel that is connected to the convention center the conference is being held at and then I fly home Sunday 7/28/14.

This was somewhat of a 30th birthday present to myself but I am working on getting my trip completely paid for by doing some blog posts and social media tags that could yield some income. We'll see what happens, but either way I've created a plan for myself to get more out of this year's conference than I did last year.

First, I'm contacting everyone within the first week of my return. Second, every blogger I interact with will get a blogger spotlight on my blog beginning the day after I get home. If I get 100 cards, I'll do 100 spotlights. I really want to interact more with the girls I meet and give them a proper shout out this time around. Third, I won't wait to connect with the brands I'm interested in working with like I did last time. I'm really kicking myself because I waited so long that many of the slots available for reviews and blogger groups filled up fast! This is just the beginning of my plan. I won't squander this second chance!

BLOGHER BOUND!





#blogger #BlogHer14 #selfiebration

I'm so tickled pink to announce that I AM going to BlogHer 2014!!! As of Tuesday 5/27/14 I'm officially on the roster as an attendee and I'm so stoked!!! I waited to post this in case I wasn't REALLY going to be able to go, but the more I thought about it the more I realized the only way to actually go is to INTEND IT and then do it!!!! So, I'll be heading to San Jose, California with like eleventy billion other gals for the 10th anniversary of this amazing conference.

Looking back on last year I can see what mistakes I made and I plan to make this year's event better for myself and my career.

First, I'm not risking trying to stay with anyone I know. I went ahead and budgeted for the hotel that I'll be staying in so there will not be any surprise expenses. Second, the hotel I chose is directly connected to the convention center that the conference will be in so I won't have to worry about transportation to and from the event. Third, I booked one of the group hotels that other conference attendees will be staying at to get a kick ass discount! Finally, I have an entire plan laid out for how I will handle the weeks leading up to the conference, the conference itself and the weeks that follow the event.

My only regret at this point is not following through with my plan for the beginning of this year to get a sponsor to "send me" to the conference, but no matter- I AM GOING TO BLOGHER 2014 :)

I have a great feeling that I will make my money back from this conference in no time and that in 2015 I will have no trouble at all getting a sponsor to pay my way.

Clearon Bleach Tablets Review

Bleach Tablets By Clearon 

Clearon Bleach Tablets was One of the vendors at BlogHer 2013. They gave me two bottles for the purposes of review. While I was at their booth they showed me how these tablets work. They plopped one of the tablets into water and it fizzled and suddenly the overwhelming familiar scent of bleach rose from the water.

There are 32 tablets per bottle and 1 tablet equals 1 cup of liquid bleach. Instead of hunting for my cup and then worrying about splashing bleach everywhere I just throw one tablet into my load of laundry with no mess and no fuss :)

Have a product that you want me to review too? Contact me HERE


The bottle of 32 tablets does take up less space than my big bottle of bleach did and it seems to bleach just as effectively as a cup from my big bottle of bleach as well.



I would definitely recommend the Clearon Bleach Tablets but only if you buy them from Wal-Mart!They are just over $3 for a bottle of 32 tablets at Wal-Mart. Considering it yields 256 fl oz of bleach and a bottle of Clorox is $3 for 64 oz. it's a steal! Elsewhere the tablets are much more expensive!

Memorial Weekend 2014 Camping Recap





So, I thought I'd give ya'll a quick Memorial Weekend 2014 Camping Glamping Recap in the form of 10 lessons I learned:

1. Thou shalt not forget to bring the air mattress pump. Omg! We forgot the pump and therefore slept on the floor for three nights. Not awesome.
2. Thou shall bring a ceiling fan when glamping. Dude, if it had not been for the ceiling fan we brought for our tent, I'm not sure we would have made it through the weekend.
3. Thou shall re-apply sunscreen every 80 minutes. The directions on the sunscreen are serious bro! We were awesomely lucky to make it three days in the sun with no sunburn. Alas, I'm out of all of the four bottles of sunscreen I brought with.
4. Thou shalt not step on a root barefoot. I have been having massive amounts of trouble with my right heel lately. I've been walking a lot in hopes of losing some weight to ease the pressure and pain on my heel. Then, I stepped on a tree root while barefoot and lost all hope of doing much walking for the weekend. The pain got so bad I had to be pushed around in a wheelchair much of one evening.
5. Thou shalt not go to Wet N' Wild Memorial Day weekend. Okay, I am a fan of water parks but prefer them when they aren't as busy. We were camping near Wet N' Wild so the collective group decided we should spend a day there. Unfortunately this particular weekend drew such a crowd that every single ride had an hour long wait or longer. The wave pool was overflowing and there was NOTHING lazy about the lazy river. Note to self- on Memorial weekend just go to the free campground pool because we barely spent any time that day in the water...
6. Thou shall bring extra towels and wash cloths- Yep- we didn't have enough towels and wash cloths and had to re-use some towels thereby defeating the purpose of showering imho...
7. Thou shall bring a bigger cooler. Our cooler wasn't big enough to hold enough drinks between ice stops...
8. Thou shalt not wear water shoes too long- big ugly blisters- that is all!
9. Thou shalt not go to bed until re-applying bug spray- I got some wicked bites while sleeping.
10. Thou shalt not call it glamping unless in an RV or cabin- The weekend made me long for one of the two.

Blogger Spotlight - Katy in a Corner!




"Katy in a Corner!" I must have screamed that a dozen times or more at BlogHer 2013. Something about this woman, Katy Morgan a.k.a. Katy in a Corner- she just made me laugh and I loved her blog and welp- KATY IN A CORNER!

One of the very first videos I saw that made me excited to go to BlogHer 2013 is the one you see above. Her sense of humor cracked me up in the biggest way and I just frikkin loved it. After learning she was going to be speaking I just knew I HAD to meet her. 

Her awesome class was about vlogging hangups and how people just need to get over themselves and get on camera. I confess I still am scared of being on camera, but I'm more willing to try a vlog or two after listening to her talk about the vlogging hangups. Check out what she said HERE! And then seriously...do yourself a favor and go visit Katy in a Corner to laugh, cry and above all else - be entertained!

Chick-Fil-A Asian Salad Review


@ChickfilA #AsianSalad #ChickfilA #ProductReview #BloggerReview


I have a new obsession- the Chick-Fil-A Asian Salad. In the span of about 9 days I had three. Add to the fact that I literally had to walk a mile each day that I wanted one- you know this obsession is serious. I probably would get more if they weren't close to $8!

Basically, at the beginning of 2014 I had three of the calendar cards and for the month of May I could get a salad with the card. My husband only like Caesar salads and I work very close to a Chick-Fil-A so it only made sense to cash in these salads for myself. The first day I went into get one I had not yet learned of the fact that they are no longer serving the spicy chicken salad. I almost cried when it wasn't on the menu. After mulling it over I opted for the Asian salad figuring, eh- why not? If I don't like it no big deal because I've "made my money back" on the cards already. I chose grilled chicken and was delighted when it came with a honey sesame dressing, wontons and dried bell peppers.
 
Have a product that you want me to review too? Contact me HERE!

 I ate that salad faster than any salad I think I have ever consumed. I don't know if I was just starving from the fact I had to walk half a mile there and a half a mile back to work before I could eat it OR if it was just that good. So, two days later I felt it was only reasonable to try it again. I made the walk there and back only this time I was given honey sesame dressing, wontons and sliced almonds in place of the dried bell peppers. It was just as good the second time if not better!

I had other lunch plans for a few days but I am not kidding when I tell you that third free salad was burning a whole in my purse. First chance I got I made one more walk and got one more salad again with the almonds instead of the peppers.

I'm in love with the Chick-Fil-A Asian salad! I'm going to have to come up with a way to replicate it on my own at home!

This salad features freshly prepared with hot chicken, two cups of hand-chopped veggies and mandarin oranges and is served with honey sesame dressing. The optional toppings are wontons, dried bell peppers and sliced almonds. I'm sure I can get all these ingredients at my grocery store but I wonder if it will taste the same? hmmmmmmmm....

Brew Over Ice Review

 

Yet another awesome vendor that was at the BlogHer 2013 conference was "Brew Over Ice®". The Brew Over Ice K-Cup® is a specially designed K-Cup for the Keurig® that you literally brew over ice.

They had lots of K-Cups to try but my favorite hands down that kept me coming back to the booth during the whole conference was the Snapple Peach Tea. It was so delicious!!! The best part is the tea was already sweetened to perfection. I just brewed the tea over ice and voila! I had a perfect glass of Snapple Peach Iced Tea. This stuff is delicious ya'll! Seriously.


Have a product that you want me to review too? Contact me HERE

When I got home from the conference I was fortunate enough to receive 4 more sample K-Cups which I promptly drank and then cried over because I didn't have anymore. I've been reluctant to buy more because dang those K-Cups are expensive! When brewing coffee I generally use the reusable K-Cup because it's cheaper, but I do want some more of the Snapple Brew Over Ice K-Cups as soon as possible. My birthday is coming up...perhaps I'll ask for some...hmmm...

9 Weeks til BlogHer


#blogher14 #selfiebration

Today is officially 9 Weeks til BlogHer. I'm still planning on going, but it's not set in stone. My husband has asked me to make a list of all the reasons I should go and all the reasons I should not go and then decide based on the two lists. So, here we go...

Why I Should Go:
1. Last year I had a blast! This year will be fun too!
2. Last year I learned a LOT! I'll learn more this year too!
3. It's an opportunity to interact with many of the brands I'm interested in working with
4. It's a chance to meet other bloggers and make "real life" connections :)
5. It's the 10th anniversary of the conference and it would be cool to say I was there- yes this counts for why I should go because it matters to me!
6. Most of the trip is going to be tax deductible.
7. It's a second chance to do all the things I said I would last year. I'm in a better place mentally than I was last year and I'm much more motivated to implement lessons learned and what not...
8. I would be staying in a hotel near the conference this time so no risk of dealing with being a house guest and learning I'm no longer welcome...
9. Other than the ticket in, I don't really have to pay for...anything. Pretty much all my meals are covered.
10. I've never been to California and would like to see some new sites
11. I got a lot of stuff for free that I actually use! (So- I saved us money!!!) I received coupons for lots of free groceries, won some pretty awesome door prizes and was sent some other cool stuff after the conference ended.
12. The people I did keep in contact with have inspired me to work harder and I've learned a lot by stalking er I mean reading the blogs of some of the gals that were there that I didn't even know existed!

Why I Should Not Go:
1. Last year I didn't follow up enough with people I met
2. I didn't implement a lot of the stuff I did learn
3. It's expensive to get there, stay there and attend the conference


Any ideas on what else I should add to these lists?

Keel and Curley Sangria Review


I have been wanting to head to the Keel & Curley Winery in Plant City for a while now. Ever since I heard they make wine with blueberries, blackberries and strawberries I've wanted to try their wine. I regret that even though I live a mere 45 minutes from their winery I've yet to head down there for a tour let alone a tasting.

Recently, I've noticed that Keel & Curley Wines have been making more and more appearances on the shelves of my local grocery stores. I continued to wait to try their wines because I thought it would force me to make the trek to their actual winery but all plans to wait ceased when I saw their sangria on the shelf at my regular gas station... I love sangria and the gal at the register would not shut up about how delicious it was and I broke- I bought a bottle and took it home immediately!

Have a product that you want me to review too? Contact me HERE



I put it in the freezer until it was good and cold (but not frozen!). Then, as soon as it seemed like it had reached the perfect level of cold I poured myself a glass and sat down on the couch to inhale, er I mean sip it slowly.


The drink is very good. It doesn't have the bitter after taste that often comes with sangria. It's a nice blend of fruity without being too sweet.


The Keel & Curley Sangria description: "Our Sangria is a blend of our finest red wines, Cabernet, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Blackberry and of course our famous Blueberry! These red wines are blended together with lemons, oranges, tangerines, pineapples, peaches and strawberries."

I definitely plan on purchasing the Keel & Curley Sangria again because of how good it was. It went down smooth and paired nicely with my salad at lunch and then my steak at dinner.

If this wine is any indication of how good their other wines are, I know I'm in for a real treat. I look forward to trying more soon...even if I don't make it to Plant City ;)

Eggland's Best Review


One of the vendors at BlogHer 2013 was Eggland's Best. These folks gave me a coupon to try Eggland's Best at home for free for the purposes of review.

"You'll definitely be able to tell the difference because the eggs will taste better," said the gal at the booth.

I'm not sure if it was how I prepared them, but I honestly could not tell the difference. They didn't taste any better to me than the eggs I normally buy at the grocery store. The only difference I did notice is that the Eggland's Best brand was nearly double to cost for a dozen.

Have a product that you want me to review too? Contact me HERE!  

Do you like Eggland's Best? Am I crazy here? Do you REALLY notice a difference?

I know that Eggland's Best brand is better for me in the sense that they say they never use hormones, steroids, or antibiotics of any kind. They also promise a superior, better quality, fresher egg....and that's all good, but for the taste- I just didn't notice a difference.

If I do make the decision to permanently switch from the brand I normally buy it won't be because of taste.

Blogger Spotlight- Quirky Chrissy


One of the people that was crazy sweet to me at BlogHer 2013 was affectionately known as Quirky Chrissy. After a terrible Saturday welcomed me to join her and her friend at brunch on the Sunday I was scheduled to leave town. Quirky Chrissy's blog description is "A Chicago suburbanite's story about life and all of the quirky attributes she throws at it."

Chrissy is one of the few people I've continued to follow online over the past year. I've thoroughly enjoyed reading her silly blog and seeing that she couldn't care less what people think about her. I seriously wish I had the brass balls she has in her panties because I often will avoid posting stuff for fear of what folks think. I seriously adore her and her blog.  

Case in point...her "about" page. This is her description of her blog: "I’ve been asked a thousand times, “What’s your niche?”  “Where do you fit in?” Well, I’m not a mommy blogger. I’m not an angry ranty blogger. I’m not a troll. But other than that, I like to think I float around the blog niches."

How kick ass is that? She doesn't let anyone stick her in a niche and make her conform. She writes what she wants when she wants it and if anyone doesn't like that, they can go to another blog. Love this way of blogging! I want to be more like Quirky Chrissy when I grow up!

Kozy Shack Chocolate Pudding Review


So, one of the vendors at BlogHer 2013 was Kozy Shack... seriously...pudding. mmm.... Pudding takes me back to the days of day scare, er I mean Day Care and After School care. That always seemed to be the snack of choice for the counselors that cared for us when it came time for snack before they plunged us into the Florida heat while we waited anxiously for our parents to come save us- er I mean pick us up. Maybe, just maybe if they had been serving Kozy Shack in place of whatever mystery goo was in those tubs I wouldn't have cringed so much.

Throughout the entire conference these awesome peeps were letting bloggers sample the tapioca and the chocolate. For the record- I'm very biased in that I LOVE chocolate and have never cared for tapioca...and the chocolate was my favorite- what a shocker!

After inhaling as many samples in the three days of the expo hall at BlogHer 2013 as those lovely ladies would allow me to I quietly accepted the coupons they gave me for two free tubs of  Kozy Shack for when I returned home.

Almost immediately after returning home I sped...um drove the speed limit to Publix to retrieve my two tubs. I also bought some chia seeds and some whipped cream to experiment.

Have a product that you want me to review too? Contact me HERE!  

Here are my results:
- Kozy Shack tastes REALLY good with a little squirt or a big squirt of whipped cream. It made it feel like a more decadent dessert when I scooped it into a martini glass and then squirted the whipped cream onto it. SO GOOD. SERIOUSLY!!! Highly recommend this stuff!

- Kozy Shack with chia seeds was also good. Why would I add chia seeds you ask? I read this article about making naughty foods better for you by adding an ingredient that would make you feel full and hopefully keep you from eating too much. The chia seeds definitely made it feel more healthy and I did in fact feel full with them. Note- I added the chia seeds and then left it in the fridge for about 30 minutes before eating so that they seeds would get kinda gummy making the pudding taste like chocolate with tapioca texture. Quite nice I must say!

Product Description- Kozy Shack Chocolate pudding is made with rich, indulgent cocoa for a heavenly milk chocolate taste experience.

To this I say? MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! More Kozy Shack please!

ROC Review- Roc MAX Resurfacing Facial Cleanser


Roc MAX Resurfacing Facial Cleanser is just one of the many amazing products I received for the purposes of review at BlogHer 2013. I received this awesome facial cleanser from the CVS Minute Clinic booth and I have to say this $Hit is amazeballs!

Here is the product description: Takes cleansing to the max to optimize your anti-aging products...This can not only clog pores but may also prevent high-performance moisturizers and serums from performing to their fullest potential - by interfering with the full absorption of their anti-aging ingredients. RoC Max Resurfacing Facial Cleanser is specifically designed to take cleansing to the Max to optimize the performance of your anti-aging products. This luxurious cleanser exfoliates away all traces of dirt, oil and dead skin cells, which can interfere with the absorption of anti-aging ingredients. After just 1 use, you'll get softer, smoother skin! 

To say I LOVE this facial cleanser would be an understatement. I ran out of the first one and was so saddened until I happened upon a second bottle and was happy until I realized that I'm running low on this supply as well.

The Roc MAX Resurfacing Facial Cleanser is just awesome! The scent is nice, the exfoliants in it cleanse my face while getting rid of my dead skin cells and by the time I finish my face is smooth and silky. I would highly recommend this to girls that have dry skin like me as well as those who get those pesky breakouts during that time of the month.

Product Review: Girl Scouts Coffee Mate Flavors

coffee mate

#ProductReview #CoffeeMate #GirlScouts #PRFriendly #Blogger

I know. I know. It's becoming a little too much of a trend lately, but here is another overdue review. I'm finally getting the many items on my to-do list checked off. Woohoo!!

Okay! I was sent two bottles of Girl Scouts Flavors Coffee Mate (the liquid not the powdered form) for the purposed of review. Although I was sent these items for free, all of these opinions are my own. I'm told the two flavors are still available for purchase at Target stores. Have you seen them anywhere else? Chime in with a comment!


Have a product that you want me to review too? Contact me HERE

Coffee Mate Flavor One- Girl Scouts Thin Mints: I tried the Thin Mints flavor in several different drinks. In coffee it makes the drink taste pretty good. When the liquid hits your tongue it's sweet and then when you swallow the bitterness of the coffee comes back but with a hint of the mint.

I also tried a creamer martini with the Thin Mint creamer. It was equal parts vodka, milk and Thin Mints creamer. This was QUITE tasty. I definitely could sip this for a while!

Next was a hot cocoa a Thin Mint concoction. This was my favorite! SO GOOD! Tastes like Christmas in a cup. YUM! Tried it in hot tea though and nearly threw up. Gross! Seriously! Don't do this ya'll!!!


Coffee Mate Flavor Two- Girl Scouts Caramel and Coconut aka Samoas: Overall after all of my kitchen testing this was my favorite creamer. In coffee, vodka, tea and hot cocoa this creamer is fantastic. It's not as good in the hot cocoa as the Thin Mints one but it wins for versatility hands down!


I made a creamer martini with this creamer as well and I'm lovingly calling it a Samoatini. Next time I'll line the glass with chocolate swirls and have a graham cracker and chocolate rim and I could seriously drink these all night! So frikkin' yummy!!!!!


If you are a coffee lover I would highly recommend these creamers. If you like creamy martinis I would also highly recommend these creamers. You know what? Just go to Target and buy one of each and try them for yourself. Let me know what you think of them in the comments below!

Product Review- Yardley Products


#ProductReview #Yardley #PRFriendly #Blogger

This is another review that is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay overdue, but here we go nonetheless...
I was sent a bottle of Finesse with a Touch of Yardley Lavender shampoo, a Yardley London Oatmeal & Almond Bath Bar and Yardley London's Honey Almond Cream Body Wash for the purposes of review. Although I was sent these items for free, all of these opinions are my own.


Have a product that you want me to review too? Contact me HERE

Finesse with a Touch of Yardley Lavender shampoo: I really enjoyed the fragrance of this shampoo and I used every drop of the bottle. I will definitely be adding this to my rotation of shampoos. Am I the only one who rotates the shampoo I use from week to week? Chime in below!

Yardley London Oatmeal & Almond Bath Bar:  I loved this product so much I used it like crazy and then promptly went to the store and bought more. I love the fragrance because it isn't over powering and I like how clean my skin felt after using it. I agree whole heartedly with the product's description: "The Yardley London Oatmeal & Almond Bath Bar combines sweet overtones of almond mixed with natural oatmeal for a gentle exfoliated and soothing bar that works to defend against dry skin and irritation." I will definitely be buying this product again!

Yardley London's Honey Almond Cream Body Wash: I honestly didn't like this product as a body wash. I felt like it didn't lather up enough the way I like my body washes to do. I ended up using the bottle as my hand soap and enjoyed that much more! I love the fragrance and how soft it made my hands feel, but as a body wash - no thank you!

All of these products are also sold at Walgreens and I purchased the bath bar Wal-Mart and have seen the bath bar at Dollar Tree and Target as well.

Product Review- LypSyl Lip Balm


#ProductReview #LypSyl #PRFriendly #Blogger

This review is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay overdue, but hey! Better late than never I suppose. This review is about LypSyl Intense Protection Lip Balm. I was sent two free tubes for the purposes of review. I tried the Vanilla Plum and the Original Mint. After one night I decided the Vanilla Plum is simply not for me. I didn't care for the fragrance at all and that alone just ruined it for me.

Have a product that you want me to review too? Contact me HERE

The next night I tried the Original Mint and from that first application I was hooked! I can honestly say that this is the first time in my life I used a lip balm/chapstick from the beginning to the absolute end of the tube. I am crying now that I'm out of it and kick myself every time I go to the store and forget to buy a new tube!!!! I LOVE the Original Mint LypSyl Intense Protection Lip Balm and would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone and everyone that needs lip balm/chapstick that they can use regularly.

Personally, every evening I have to wear chapstick throughout the night because my lips get so dry and chapped. Since using LypSyl each night I've not had chapped lips! I desperately need to get a replacement tube before the chapped lips come back. What I've been using in the mean time sucks compared to the LypSyl. Want to try it? Get it HERE! LypSyl is also available at Walgreens stores :)
