Bug Sprays – that DON’T STINK!!

slide_356181_3917930_free

It’s that time of year again! Camping, swimming, hanging out on the beach. Who doesn’t love sitting by the pool and laying out – or sitting by the fire after a day of camping – and roasting marshmallows? We all love it, no? You know what I DON’T LOVE? Dealing with mosquito’s! Seems like mosquito’s and camping go hand in hand. Each year as I’m packing for my trips I have to stock up on bug spray, and I hate freaking bug spray. It smells awful, feels awful, and I find it a necessary evil. Don’t we all?

You know I swear Oregon has kamikaze mosquito’s that will bite THROUGH your clothes.

Anyway, this summer there’s no need to suffer! I’ll be stocking up on these bad boys as soon as I get off here! Several companies have come out with good, clean smelling bug sprays! Where have you been all my life!

ABOVE: This bug spray repels insects without clogging pores with harsh dyes, petrochemicals and pesticides. $12.99, Bedbathandbeyond.com

In what can only be described as the “fanciest bug spray ever,” this product blends notes of cedarwood, vanilla and citrus into a luxe repellant. $65, Aromaflage.com

Last Day to Enter!

It’s summer time and with sun dresses and short season upon us its time to stock up on some great razors. BIC just released a great new razor the BIC Soleil Glow.  And so far I love this razor. The blades are crazy sharp which means no stubble or going over spots twice. And the comfort strip and comfort shield protect my skin from nicks.

In the photo below you can see the great cover that comes with this razor.  Most travel/storage covers seem to pop off or just not stay on at all. I love the cover on the BIC Soleil Glow you slide it on and it snaps into place. I have used this for travel and the cover stays put until you slide it off. No more dulling the blade as it jostles in my bag or worrying about find a razor in my bag blade first. This is such a great razor it leaves my skin so soft and smooth and has cut my shave time considerably. And the best part a 3 pack is under $7!
