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.

Pura Vida!

Hey y'all!

I keep making promises to do better about posting and then I break those promises. So I won't make any such promise this time!

I wanted to give you all a little run down on a trip I recently took (and LOVED). Two of my sisters and my two best friends and I decided to make a run for the equator. To Costa Rica! We started planning pretty early and got tickets and such purchased. We stayed in Jaco (pronounced Haa-CO). I'm still not sure I'm saying that correctly. You should have seen the looks on the immigration officer's face when I pronounced it as it is spelled. I'm pretty sure he called me an ignorant American.

Anywho, we flew from Charleston because they had the better fares and schedules at the time that we booked. Charleston to Miami to Jan Santamaria Airport. Something happened on our flight and me and my bestie were asked to move to another seat. It was actually better seats than what we had. Since we were so accommodating, we were given some l…

New School Dating

How many single readers do I have? Are you struggling with dating? No? Good for you! Yes? Why is it so hard?! Sigh.

Well, I have several thoughts on that last part. Mostly, I'm glad that it is not just ME that dating is so hard for.

Online Dating - Dating sites specifically.

Y'all, I signed up for online dating and almost instantly regretted it! I paid for a month and cancelled my subscription after two weeks. What are you really here for? Who sent you? Those are the questions I wanted to ask most of the guys that messaged me. Mostly they just lurked on my profile. Like, don't you know these sites tell me when you view my profile? I can see it. Why aren't you saying anything? Do I have a boob hanging out in one of my pictures? Phew, no I don't. Sigh. So yeah, that got nowhere. I'm impatient, I know, but online is not for me. Clearly it works for some people though. I find that if you will lie about the simple things, it will be impossible for me to trust you wit…

Baby No More, Baby Magic is FOUR!

Like seriously, where did the time go?

She was just a wee little thing yesterday! Now she is sassy, independent and full of honesty. Like FULL of honesty. She knows nothing about your feelings so she doesn't give 2 cents about hurting them. The kid just tells it like it is. And I hope she never changes.

I decided not to have a party this year. But guess what? It turned into a party anyway! Friends don't let friends eat cake alone apparently! It was awesome! The night before I baked her cake. She refused to go to sleep so I let her decorate some of the extra cupcakes. She insisted on licking ALL the frosting when we were done. When she finally went to sleep, I hand pumped what seemed like a thousand balloons - and my carpal tunnel is still yelling at me about it. I put the balloons on the floor in her room so she would be surprised when she woke up. She was! She woke up singing "Mommy, it's morninggggg, it's my birthdayyyyyyyy!" She's so stinking cute!
