BodyBudd Pull-Up Assist Band

Raise your hand if you're like me and you struggle with pull-ups, BIG TIME! 
Well did you know that they make these awesome stretchy bands that can basically be your spotter and supporter. No workout buddy needed for pull-up assistance, so you don't have to be embarrassed when you can barely get that chin up there. 

Introducing the BodyBudd Pull-UP Assistance Band
See, doesn't that look much easier now?! You got this! 

Now, this is not like your typical stretchy workout bands. These are much thicker to give you all that support you need. BodyBudd offers 2 different thicknesses depending on what level you are at with your pull-ups and how much extra help you need. 
Left: 4.5mm                   Right: 6.4mm
Extra Product Features: 
  • These are made with high quality latex, this baby isn't going to snap on you! This will hold your weight. 
  • Great for not just pull ups, try chin ups, muscle ups and dips. This gives you that extra support to strengthen your upper body. Work your way up to doing these on your own!
  • Great length and stretch.
  • Comes with a door anchor to let you work on stretches and anchoring your band somewhere.
  • Also comes with a travel bag to allow you to take this on the go or just store in your home.

Happy Friday Everyone! 

I just wanted to announce some exciting news. As some of you who follow on my social media sites may have already seen, I announced that I teamed up with a couple of friends to offer a fun giveaway to my followers. Usborne books and a beautiful handcrafted Swarovski crystal bookmark. We still plan to do this giveaway.

Unfortunately, it seems not too many people are interested in getting free stuff. Part of this giveaway is sponsored, so in order to help my sponsor in any way, it would be most beneficial if I had a larger follower base. 

I would like to still offer this giveaway and reward those who are willing to help me in this endeavor. Once my blog hits 100 followers, which is so doable, I will be happy to do this wonderful giveaway and throw in some extra goodies for a second winner! 

This blog is a way for me to share my love of cooking and adapting recipes, sharing fun adult and children's crafts, and just recently I have been providing product reviews. Some of these reviews are requirements in order for me to get a great deal on such products, and some of these are just things that I absolutely love and HAVE to share with you all. I do not get paid for the majority of these posts, and if I do, I will state such in the posts.

So whats the gain in me doing any of this? 
Am I trying to sell you something? No, I am simply just sharing some great things with you great people. I enjoy being able to do this and would love to continue to do so. Your support would mean a lot to me as this can sometimes be a time consuming venture. My reward is not money, but knowing that people find my information useful or entertaining in some way. I just really want you all to know how much it means to me when you actually read my posts and appreciate them in some way. 
Also, sellers are more willing to provide giveaways when they know there is a large follower base. So, lots of followers=lots more free stuff for you!

How can you help?
Word of mouth is my only means of "advertising".
 The best way to help me get followers is to share a post from my blog that you like and tell your friends WHY you like it. Invite them to follow my page and why you think they should. They're more likely to follow if you mention it to them and actually let them know you like this blog (if you do).

You can also share this with friends on other social media sites like Instagram or Twitter. 

Send an email to someone with a recipe, craft or product you think they may like.

Comment on posts and tell me what you liked about the post or what you thought.

Message me and let me know what sort of products you would like to see. Or if there are any products you would like me to help you find deals on. 

Ask me how you too can start getting awesome deals on products in exchange for your reviews. 

Once I hit 100 followers I will start the giveaway posts and give back to those who helped me! 
Thank you all so much for your support!

Chalk Marker Review

10 Premium Liquid Chalk Markers- from Kynsa

This post may contain affiliate links. Read full Advertising Disclosure Here.

If you've been wanting to get your hands on some awesome chalk markers and don't want to pay the steep price at the craft store, let me help you! 

This set of chalk markers are awesome! Not only do you get a set of 10 ultra vibrant markers, but it comes with 40....that's right, 4-0 chalk labels! 
Yeah, it does kind of make you want to label EVERYTHING! 

Here are the 8 different styles of labels you will get:

The labels stick very well and are also easy to remove from glass and plastic. 

Now, let's talk about these markers:

1. Ultra Vibrant- these colors will make any project stand out

2. Wide Selection of Colors- some are neon and some are basic colors
The 4 yr old helped me with the test strips. 

3. Decent Dry Time- these don't take forever to dry like some chalk markers I have tested

4. Non-toxic, water based and low odor

5. Can Be Used on Any Non-Porous Surfaces- think whiteboards, glass, mugs, food containers, chalk labels, mirrors and more

6. Wipes Off Easy- I just use a baby wipe and sometimes dry with a paper towel 

7. Make Sure to Test your Chalk Paint Surface- if you have made your own chalk surface using chalk paint, you will want to test a small area first. In my experience, the chalk marker will leave a residue (no color), that is almost like waxy. It is hard, if not impossible, to remove. I have had to just repaint my surface where markers left their..."mark" Haha

8. Long Lasting- you will get lots of use out of these. They are just like any paint marker though. Make sure you don't apply too much pressure once you have already established a paint flow to the tip.

9. Shake WELL before each use!

10. Fine Tips- the fine tips make it easy to control the look of your project

I recommend you give these markers a try if you are looking for some good quality chalk markers at an affordable price.
