Amazon Prime Members Save 10% at Whole Foods

Did you know your Amazon Prime membership has more perks than two day shipping? In addition to free videos, photo storage, music, or being on a first name basis with every one of your mail, UPS, and FedEx delivery people (an unspoken joy of my Prime addiction), Amazon just announced Prime members will save 10% on sale items at Whole Foods.

It’s a little unclear why Amazon decided to only discount the already on sale items each week, but who am I to look a gift coupon in the mouth? The program is available right now in Florida, but will be rolling out to all stores sometime this summer. We checked it out, and it’s a simple way to save while you shop. All you have to do download the Whole Foods app and scan the QR code at checkout. The app clearly displays the items on sale at your local Whole Foods, so it’s easy to plan your shopping trip and see where you can save even more.

But wait, there’s more! As an added bonus for Prime members, select cities are also offering free 2-hour delivery. I live in New York City, aka—the land where all things are delivered directly to your door. If you’ve never experienced the joy of having someone else lug groceries around town for you, you’re going to want to get in on this. It’s magical.

 

Finally, if you have the Amazon credit card, you can get up to 5% back at Whole Foods and Amazon.com. The moral of the story here? Amazon is poised to take over the world, and is kindly bestowing extra discounts on all the little people like you and me. I’m not mad about it.

If you aren’t an Amazon Prime member, you can sign up here (they even have a free 30-day trial option). Learn more about the Amazon discounts at Whole Foods here.

Vacation Envy: What’s It Really About?

This Kind of Summer Travel is NOT Kid Friendly (and we’re good with that)

For the last few weeks of school, all anyone can talk about is where your family is headed once that final bell rings. And, inevitably, you’ll answer with your plans to take the kids, uh, wherever the hell it is they’re dragging you this year. (How did they get put in charge of summer vacation anyhow?)

But might I suggest a few types of travel this summer where you ditch the kids at Grandma’s and strike out with only other grownups? No packing more diaper bags than suitcases, no fighting tired toddlers in airports, no obnoxious teenagers taking more pics for Instagram than one could possibly post…

Oh, you’re convinced? Okay, here we go:

The Looooooove Boat

Ryan Gosling Kiss GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

It’s the all-important cruise to reconnect with your significant other. Like, reconnect reconnect. You know…reconnect. Yeah, you get it. Plus, you can talk about things other than kids and remember that you are in fact a worthwhile and semi-cool human being even when no one is hanging from your legs crying about a fruit rollup.

The Girls Trip

That’s right, you DO have grown up friends still! And you know where you should take them? Disneyland. Now, personally, I’d rather die than stand in eternal lines with trillions of other people, swassing up a real slick storm—hard pass. But apparently there’s really something to hitting the most magical place on earth with your best GFs instead of your whiney kids. Check out the legit evidence here.

The Couples Getaway

Friends Tv Applause GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

An oceanfront cottage in Maine? Maybe a little Airbnb outside Prague. You choose the destination—near or far, but grab your best couple friends and live it up like you’re back in college. Stay out late, be a little reckless—the kids will never have to know!

Mama Goes Solo

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Happy Dance GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

Whether you’re a weekend-at-the-spa kind of mama or a backpack-the-Pacific-Crest-Trail kind, the key is—fly solo. Take hours doing your hair and makeup just to read your book on the hotel balcony, sleep in til noon, go dancing til dawn. Whatever it is you WANT—do that thing. You deserve it, mama. And you deserve to do it without worrying about whether or not you deserve it. Because you do. I promise.

Dry Hair Driving You Nuts? Add This To Your Routine

 

Full Disclosure: I live in one of the driest climates in the United States! I’m in Utah and we literally rank #2 driest climate.  Yes, we even beat Arizona.

 

 

As you can guess, my skin and hair are DRY.  Well, I just found something new that solves the hair problem.

The trick? Try switching out your hair dryer.

Confession. I used a little blue hair dryer for literally 20 years! From the time I was 18, until I was 38! It was held together with electrical tape in it’s last days.

I upgraded and bought a fancy hair dryer. Like the $150 kind. Indeed it dries my hair faster (it’s like unto being in a wind tunnel) but it has definitely dried my hair out a bit and I’ve got a few complaints. The buttons on the handle are horribly designed so that when I hold the handle I’m constantly accidentally turning it off or changing the heat. My girls complain that it burns their head, and it typically leaves me with a bunch of tangles. It’s always falling off the counter, I take some responsibility for that – but it still drives me nuts. But it does dry my hair fast.

Panasonic reached out and asked us to review their “Nanoe™ Moisture Infusion Hair Dryer” with promises of increased moisture and shine. Since I’m a little underwhelmed with my current hair dryer I was game!

Could a hair dryer really ADD moisture to my hair?

 

We Tried It: Our Panasonic Nanoe Hair Dryer Review

My kids and I tried the Panasonic hair dryer out (my husband has no hair, he’s disqualified). We’ve all got different hair types:

  • Me = Thick + On The Dry Side
  • 9-Year-Old = Fine (Thin) + Rats Nest
  • 14-Year-Old Girl = Fine (But Lots of Hair) + Damaged/Dry From Some Ombre Highlights
  • 15-Year-Old Boy = Fine + Bleached + Uses Lots of Product

My Review

I’ve got LOADS of hair. The weather in Utah is hard on my hair and skin.  Because it’s so dry here my hair can get really staticky (which is my biggest complaint about the dry weather). I use a leave in conditioner to help with that and even then my hair is still a bit dry.

This dryer totally tamed my hair. I was skeptical that a dryer could actually add moisture BUT when I was finished my hair definitely softer and the texture was more smooth (and that was WITHOUT using the leave in conditioner).

It did take a bit more time to dry than my wind tunnel machine hair dryer — but the difference is definitely obvious. My guess is that over time I would have LESS split ends by using this hair dryer. 

9-Year-Old Girl

Her hair is fine and SO tangly in the morning. We used the hair dryer this morning before school and her hair was smooth and felt thicker. It really added volume. I also noticed that by day 2 her hair still looked great.  It still felt thicker and continued to behave a whole lot better. 

I’ve got ZERO usable sound bites from her, because let’s all be real . . . the 9-year-old could care less about the hair dryer (or what her hair looks like). Those were the days!

14-Year-Old Girl

She’s due for a haircut. Her hair has grown to insane lengths, she “ombred” the ends of her hair this year, and she’s got some crazy new growth coming in all over her head. Did that happen to you in middle school?!? It’s crazy!

Here’s what she said:

“MOM! Look at my hair! This dryer is LIT! My hair is way softer, my flyaways (shorter new growth) are not sticking up (this was revolutionary), it’s like I’m having a good hair day! It took a little longer to dry but it’s worth it.”

15-Year-Old Boy

OK, so my son then my son felt left out. He literally said “Yo! How does that blow dryer work?”

He regularly uses a hair dryer too. Boys these days . . . they need volume and product to keep their hair looking it’s best! He, in true teenage boy style, recently bleached his hair to a yellow / platinum. He and 10 of his buddies look just like 1994.

He felt like his hair was softer and held on to his product better.

 

The Verdict?

The best part is that I got my kids feedback BEFORE they even knew we were reviewing this product online. They thought that I had just brought home a new hair dryer. 

Bottom line:

Better design than my $150 dryer (the buttons are in the right place, it sits perfectly on the counter top). Temperature control was perfect – my biggest critics (my girls) were not getting after me about the heat.

Did it really add moisture to our hair? YES! And it made a visible difference with the first use and the difference sticks. 

 

Here’s How It Works

How does the Nanoe™ technology work, you might ask? Here’s what Panasonic has to say:

It draws naturally occurring ions present in the air and breaks them down into significantly smaller particles that are then combined and held together by water molecules. These new moisture-rich nanoe hair dryer particles—with nearly 1,000 times more moisture than regular ions—are infused into the hair while styling. In essence, the nanoe Hair Dryer helps protect and beautify your hair by taking moisture that’s outside and putting it on the inside. The result = smoother, shinier and stronger hair.

 

Would I Buy It?

Yep. Cheaper than my other dryer, no complaints on design or function, and YES it really does add moisture to your hair (that sticks)!

10 Things That Made 90s Summers All That (And a Bag of Chips)

It was 1996. School was out for the summer. And there we were, red Squeez-Its in hand, taking a much-deserved break from our latest MC Hammer trampoline choreography. I’d seen a million days like this—though we did throw some No Doubt, Will Smith, and Aqua into the dance mix for good measure—and I’d see what felt like a million more.

But then the 90s ended and things changed. Frosted tips were out, and so were my perfect childhood summers. But if I could bring just 10 things back from those beautiful days, you bet it’d be these.

90s summer fun

1. Rollerblading—Duh. The quintessential form of exercise, mode of transportation, and reason for road rash of the 90s.

2. Trampoline sleepovers—Waking up sweating in your sleeping bag, smashed on every side because the eeny-meeny-miny-mo gods condemned you to the middle spot…again. And—bonus—there were no concerns about four young girls being snatched from the un-fenced side yard.

3. Boy Meets World—Because let’s face it, Girl Meets World just isn’t cutting it and nothing could ever represent the definitively 90s neighborhood vibes better than Eric yelling Feeeeeeeeeney out the back door.

4. Land lines—Yes, the prank calling was best done with the provocative risk of a parent answering, but what I really want back is the idea of not being at everyone else’s beck and call 1440 minutes a day (that’s all of them, by the way) because of the blessed/cursed mass propagation of the cell phone.

5. All-day play dates—That were never called that. It was called life. You left in the morning and, so long as you came home at night, what you did in between was a time warp left to your imagination. So many adventures that could never happen with today’s structured “play” regimen.

6. The community pool—Do these still exist? I mean, the way they used to? With the entire family there, picnicking between high dives and underwater somersaulting contests?

7. The Skip-It—Obviously the ankle cuts were worth it, but “the very best part of aaaaaaall, there’s a <pause> counter on this ball!!” I’ll never forget that jam. And was there a greater accomplishment than outskipping your BFFs? I think not.

90s summer skipit

8. Reasonable pay for family chores—There was over half an acre of grass on our property and if I mowed the entire thing, I earned $9. That would now be a job for professionals with a trailer full of equipment and they’d charge $100. Ugh. What has happened to slave child labor?

9. Caboodles—How else would you carry your Polly Pocket collection, LipSmackers, and Pogs all at the same time??

10. Innocence—And not just mine. But the world’s. Sure, there was OJ. And the Lewinsky stuff. And… Well, maybe it wasn’t all the best, but as a kid, it wasn’t shoved in our faces like today. We were ignorantly blissful for the most part, like kids should get to be.

10 Things That Made 90s Summers All That (And a Bag of Chips)

It was 1996. School was out for the summer. And there we were, red Squeez-Its in hand, taking a much-deserved break from our latest MC Hammer trampoline choreography. I’d seen a million days like this—though we did throw some No Doubt, Will Smith, and Aqua into the dance mix for good measure—and I’d see what felt like a million more.

But then the 90s ended and things changed. Frosted tips were out, and so were my perfect childhood summers. But if I could bring just 10 things back from those beautiful days, you bet it’d be these.

90s summer fun

1. Rollerblading—Duh. The quintessential form of exercise, mode of transportation, and reason for road rash of the 90s.

2. Trampoline sleepovers—Waking up sweating in your sleeping bag, smashed on every side because the eeny-meeny-miny-mo gods condemned you to the middle spot…again. And—bonus—there were no concerns about four young girls being snatched from the un-fenced side yard.

3. Boy Meets World—Because let’s face it, Girl Meets World just isn’t cutting it and nothing could ever represent the definitively 90s neighborhood vibes better than Eric yelling Feeeeeeeeeney out the back door.

4. Land lines—Yes, the prank calling was best done with the provocative risk of a parent answering, but what I really want back is the idea of not being at everyone else’s beck and call 1440 minutes a day (that’s all of them, by the way) because of the blessed/cursed mass propagation of the cell phone.

5. All-day play dates—That were never called that. It was called life. You left in the morning and, so long as you came home at night, what you did in between was a time warp left to your imagination. So many adventures that could never happen with today’s structured “play” regimen.

6. The community pool—Do these still exist? I mean, the way they used to? With the entire family there, picnicking between high dives and underwater somersaulting contests?

7. The Skip-It—Obviously the ankle cuts were worth it, but “the very best part of aaaaaaall, there’s a <pause> counter on this ball!!” I’ll never forget that jam. And was there a greater accomplishment than outskipping your BFFs? I think not.
