Crystal Light On the Go packs


If you're up for a healthy challenge, try this: switch out your pop products with Crystal Light On the Go packs! Crystal Light packets are easy to drop in your purse and take anywhere with you to mix with a bottle of water. They are a HEALTHY alternative to grabbing a pop! Ditch the fizz for flavor :)

At only 5 calories a pack, you can get dress up your water and make it delicious. I hate how pop makes me so full feeling and bloated. Not only does Crystal Light make water tasty, but it's hydrating, which is key during the hot summer months. It's definitely a staple in my beach bag this summer.

I tried out the Ice Tea with Lemon last week and loved it. It tasted freshly brewed with just a hint of lemon. I also love the raspberry, very refreshing.

Few tips and fun tricks:
- If you like water with a hint of lemon like me, only use a quarter pack of a lemonade packet in 16 ounces of water. Tastes like a freshly squeezed lemon in your water!
- Freeze the mix in ice cube trays for a summer cool down treat. Freeze in Dixie cups with popsicle sticks in the middle...Popsicles!
- Not necessarily a healthy tip, but you can use these as mixers to make your favorite summer time cocktail :)

What's in my Beach Bag? - Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipgloss

Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipgloss with SPF is my new beach bag essential. Not only is this gloss rich in color and super glossy, it's also moisturizing and I love that it has SPF in it! SPF is key in the summer, so this gloss is pulling double duty: stylish colors and sun protection.

Moisture Renew Lipgloss is also chock full of moisture boosting collagen, and vitamins A, C & E, this gloss reduces dryness by 95% while shielding lips from the sun.

There are several colors available. I tried this in Pink Benefit and loved the way it looked and felt. It actually feels similar to MAC glosses, but less sticky and more moisturizing. You can find Rimmel London Moisture Renew lipgloss at drugstore.com and other local drug store locations.
