Easy Food Prep With Dexas Innovative Kitchenware

Get Ready for Summer Event continues with the finest and most clever kitchenware on the market thanks to Dexas.

I only partner with the best and this can certainly be said of Dexas. Their innovative products provide practical kitchen solutions that address so many different problems and concerns of both the consummate chef and novice like myself. 

 I'm not much of a cook, yet, I still manage to get as excited as a kid in a candy store when browsing Dexas's ingenious line of kitchenware.   Their products are designed to make life simpler while providing practical storage solutions.  They also add a pop of color to their repertoire of kitchen essentials which really adds a touch of flair and style.

Dexas has made a splash in the foodie community with their innovative line of housewares and kitchen gadgets.

Creating the perfect salad

For many of us trying to eat healthy can be a real challenge.  This is why salads are so ideal, because they're healthy and filling.  Salads are a refreshing meal in the summer when fresh veggies are easier to obtain.

 I'm a two-step cooking kinda girl, that is, open frozen entree and stick in microwave, so I've always found preparing salads to be daunting. For this reason I really appreciate, and I'm grateful to Dexas for creating such great tools to make the job so much easier and less time consuming.

From a Salad Spinner that efficiently dries greens while obliterating the need for extra bowls and colanders, to a Mezzaluna, that safely and efficiently chops vegetables with complete ease.  Preparing salads, or any other dish, has never been easier.

The Ab Belt That Tones & Defines for A Leaner Waistline

Get Ready for Summer Event continues with the Slendertone Ab Belt because who doesn't want great abs for summer!  

 With summer rapidly approaching many of us are panic stricken because we feel that we're not quite ready to brave swimwear.  Oh how I long for the days of yore when swimwear covered and camouflaged the entire body, but, alas, that is not the case.

My protocol for preparing for the dreaded swimsuit involves the typical diet and exercise.  Perhaps I shouldn't use the distasteful word "diet", instead let's say I employ calorie awareness.

This is also the time of year I take my Slendertone Ab Belt out of storage, and actually start using it; I suppose it would make sense to use it throughout the year.  What can I say, when ya live in the east coast the winters can really wreck havoc on your motivation, as well as sanity.

Why is Slendertone effective?

The great minds behind Slendertone have successfully developed EMS technology; electrical muscle stimulation, products that are clinically proven to guarantee results. They were even the first company to receive an FDA clearance.

How it works

Simply put, the electrical current causes the muscles to contract and then relax, it's this repetition that works those muscles in the way that renders results.  Each program is thirty minutes in duration and conviently timed to automatically end when completed.  I encourage all to read my full review which is based on the Slendertone System-Abs Muscle Toning Belt.

It's important to keep in mind that the Slendertone Ab Belt is not marketed as a quick fix.  Don't expect to go from a beer-gut to a six pack simply by wearing your ab belt.   That's not gonna happen. If you have fat to lose, then you will need to diet as well as exercise. The ab belt is not intended to be a miracle worker, but it is an asset to an already good routine.

As part of a good routine, the Slendertone Ab Belt is instrumental at toning abdominal muscles, and this will result in a leaner waistline.  The Slendertone offers the best price for the product, and even comes with a two year warranty.  I've personally found it to be a huge advantage in giving me a leg up in my fitness endeavor.

Oofos Are The Perfect Shoe For Summer

Welcome to the Get Ready for Summer Event 

Special thanks to my co-host Michigan Saving and More

The Perfect Summer Shoe

Summer is all about fun and activity,  I find that comfortable footwear is a must!  I couldn't think of a better summer shoe than Oofos. They're a durable sandal that have continued to last  me three hard years and will probably last another three more years. Although these shoes were designed as a sport recovery shoe, their high comfort makes them desirable for just about any occasion.
   See full review here. 

I'm not alone in my love for Oofos, the Oofos Thong Sandal alone received over four hundred five star reviews on Amazon.  

A very thoughtful gift of Oofos for Michael Strahan

What makes Oofos great? A combination of Oofo's patented footbed design and Oofoam technology results in superior arch support, impact absorption and of course comfort.

Superior Arch Support,
impact Absorption, and
 of course comfort

Oofoam is 37% more impact absorbing than EVA which is the most common material used in similar type of footwear.

More reasons I choose Oofos for summer

Lightweight think travel
Great traction poolside 
Beach just rinse off the sand, also machine washable
because they're super comfortable

Ooahh Slide in black

Oofos are available for both men and women and come in four different styles along with a multitude of colors.

Beautify Your Skin & Look Your Best This Summer

One of my main focuses as a blogger is finding the best beauty and health products to share with my readers.  Of course I'm also looking for the best for myself.   While I recognize there are many factors involved in achieving a beautiful complexion, using the right product on your skin cannot be stressed enough.   Derma MD is a company that really caught my eye because they take an atypical approach to their line of skincare by comprising each product to address the root of a problem as opposed to providing a surface or temporary fix.  While they don't have a big product line-up, they do offer enough product variety to ably address various individual concerns.  Our concerns may be similar, are skin isn't, thus a need for variation.

Derma MD has earned recognition in popular beauty magazines

Derma MD discloses a full ingredient list on their site.  This enabled me to see that they do indeed offer what I have come to appreciate to be the most effective ingredients in skincare.  Of course I'm not a chemist, but based on my experience and the quality of my skin after only two weeks of using several  Derma MD products, I can tell you that the great minds behind these products surely know what they're doing, because my skin is looking mighty fine.

Check out my full review here

The products I'm using: Plant Stem Cell Lifting Serum, Uplifting Neck & Face Creme and
Daytime Moisturizer SPF 50

While it's never too late to start taking care of your skin, your best bet is getting a leg up and this summer you will surely appreciate the host of benefits these products offer.    One benefit is serious skin hydration and all without being the least bit oily.  These products absorb rapidly and completely into the skin.  One thing I've noticed in a brief period of time is my skin feels thicker, this is because it's retaining moisture and is well hydrated.  Click  read my full review to find out the other improvements I'm seeing.
