quotes about fear
Sometimes parts of life are scary. Really scary. But as long as I'm moving, I try to remind myself of what's scarier --- not moving at all. Not growing. Not learning. Not changing. Not caring. Not feeling. Not loving.

Because even though sometimes those things hurt and can be really scary, what kind of life would we have without them?

I'm learning that it's ok to have a not-so-brave face sometimes. I'm human. I'm imperfect. And sometimes --- I'm fearful.

BLISS and Tell

Did you know that nearly 50% of Americans spend at least half of their daily lives being stressed out?? I admit that I'm probably one of them. In response to this madness, neuro is urging Americans to join a stress reduction movement with their launch of their BLISS and Tell campaign. The campaign encourages consumers to relax and share their blissful moments.

I was pumped to receive a box of BLISS from neuro and today I want to share my blissful moment!

I'm currently in Texas where the summers are HOT. Everyone seems to go from one AC to the next in search for a place to cool down. But with Hawaii in my heart, I can't stay away from water. So since the beaches in Texas don't even compare to those in Hawaii, my next option is the pool. You can find me there on my days off. Even if I'm not in the water or even in a swimsuit, being near the water catching some rays calms me. Add a neuro BLISS drink to the mix and I'm good to go. Neuro BLISS contains chamomile and a blend of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants designed to reduce stress and provide a calming effect. The citrus lychee flavor and light carbonation is the perfect combination of good-for-you stuff and yumminess. Plus each bottle is only 35 calories. Sounds like pure BLISS.

Wanna try it?? I thought so. The coupon below is valid for $1 off of any neuro drink which can be found at Target, Walgreens, Safeway, 7-11, and other national grocery chains. Enjoy!

Jelly Bean Shoes



Guess what, y'all! JELLYS ARE BACK! '80s babies and '90s kids please stand up! Your favorite shoe as a child is making a comeback and I obviously had to be a part of the welcome party.

Water parks, swimming pools, backyards, and birthday parties.. I have so many memories in my Jellys! Made from high quality PVC and available in several colors (including glitter options!), Jelly Beans are seriously too cool for school. They are perfect for all of your summer adventures (I've even seen them worn with socks during the chilly months!). 

Don't believe me? Lucky Magazine recently named them in their list of "Coolest 'Ugly' Shoes to Buy Right Now". Told ya.

As a part of their big launch in the US, Jelly Beans is offering FREE US SHIPPING so you can join in on the Jelly fun too!
