Friday Finds: KIND Stong, PopSugar Must Have my NEW Car for the week and MORE!!!

Oh my goodness so much to tell you about today!  It’s been an awesome and busy week!

I almost failed to mention in all the craziness of preschool ending and Sara’s birthday that it’s officially summer in our house!  Woo hoo!  No alarm clocks… well, except for the fact that my internal alarm clock has been getting me up between 4:45 and 5:30.  Gotta work on that!!

Sara starts camp on Monday and Sunday we are doing a Father’s Day and family birthday celebration here.  What’s ONE more birthday celebration… right!??!

So, let me tell you about a few things that have landed on my doorstep lately that I am LOVING!

1) First up is the PopSugar MUST have June Box!20140608-063200-23520291.jpg

It’s like this box knows that I am on summer vacation!!  For starters I am a HUGE Emily Giffin fan and still love reading a good ole fashion book! The hair ties are a big for my hair but they are super cute to wear on my wrist!

PopSugar just nailed it with their June Box!  Want to get in on their Must Have box? Use coupon code JUNESELECT10 to get $10 off of a 3-month subscription. This code is good all month and expires on June 30th!

Each Must Have box is packed with the latest in fashion, food, fitness, beauty and home!  It’s a huge deal and an amazing box of goodies!

Disclaimer: POPSUGAR provided me with a complimentary POPSUGAR Must Have box. The opinions I have shared about the box are my own and POPSUGAR did not tell me what to say or how to say it.

2) Next is new goodies from KIND and let me tell how about truly AMAZING those folks are! KIND has a whole bunch of new products that have come out.

For starters they have their new STRONG and KIND bars which come in some very bold and new flavors!  With 10grams of protein, these bars pack a great amount of flavor and taste!


These new Strong and Kind protein bars are on the savory side, or even spicy, with five new flavors: Honey Smoked BBQ, Honey Mustard, Thai Sweet Chili, Roasted Jalapeno, and Hickory Smoked.  

These are totally different if you aren’t looking your typical sweet KIND bar or snack bar.  My favs are the Honey Smoked BBQ and Thai Sweet Chili.  So good!

We haven’t busted open the new granola yet but I promise to let you know when we do!!


3) Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I could truly live on Mexican food 2 or even 3 meals a day!  Don’t get me started on my obsession for guacamole and avocados lately!  I’ve been using a ton of this amazing cumin in my eggs, chicken, shrimp!  Everything.  Cumin is one of my favorite spices!!


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

4)  I am so thrilled and excited to partner up with Buick and Map My Run!  For the next week I’ve been given the chance to test drive this Buick Verano as part of the #Driven2Run Campaign.  Follow me on Instagram to see where I end up taking this fun car!


5)  As you all know as a ZOOMA Ambassador I get to offer you lots of great deals and promos to the August 2nd ZOOMA 10k/Half Marathon!  So today in HONOR of Friday the 13th I am thinned to present the FRIDAY  THE (UN) 13th Sale!!!  From today until MONDAY, JUNE 16th use the following codes to sign up for the ZOOMA CHICAGO RACE to save some big bucks!!
