Anti Monkey Butt Powder Review and Giveaway CLOSED

Anti Monkey Butt Powder was invented by motocross riders to prevent and reduce the friction and irritation that result from excess sweat. As you know excessive sweat can cause irritation of the buttocks and inner thighs, also known as "monkey butt". Unlike most other powders, Anti Monkey Butt Powder has calamine and talc which gives it a cooling sensation instead of the burning that you might get from other powder products. Find out more about this at www.antimonkeybutt.com.



Anti Monkey Butt Powder has a cute label and it is a real product that has a HUGE following. There are more than 34,600 Anti Monkey Butt fans on their Facebook page alone!

Anti Monkey Butt also has a new lady friend, new Lady Anti Monkey Butt Powder. Lady Anti Monkey Butt Powder delivers the same great results, but it is made with calamine and cornstarch for a more silky texture. It's perfect for the frictional discomfort that women often experience when using exercise equipment, running, driving, cycling, bra straps/cleavage perspiration or just walking. Lady Anti Monkey Butt Powder also has a nice scent to it. I love that it delivers a comfort and smells good at the same time.

Anti Monkey Butt Powder is available in mass market retail stores nationwide, as well as via online retailers and at www.antimonkeybutt.com. The suggested retail price for Anti Monkey Butt® Powder is $5.95 for a 6-ounce bottle. I would like to offer one lucky reader a bottle of each product.

My Summer Bonding Project Using Glue Dots



TwitterMoms and Glue Dots® Adhesives have teamed up to bring me a fun and creative Summer Bonding Project challenge! For this post challenge I was sent a great assortment of Glue Dots to try. You may read more about this challenge here.

I chose to entertain my children with a summer bonding project. We started looking around the house to see what we had to work with and we found a few balloons, some colored felt, markers, scissors and of course our Glue Dots.

My daughter had a great idea. She wanted to create her own balloon buddy! I traced the figures on the felt and my daughter cut them out. We attached the felt to our balloon after we blew it up. To finish up our project we used the markers to add our own personalized touch.



I love that the Glue Dots were easy to use. It took a little practice but my daughter got the hang of it pretty quickly. I felt safe with my daughter using Glue Dots because they are Acid Free and Non-Toxic. Glue Dots may be used for arts and crafts, scrapbooking, kids’ crafts, party favors and decor, specialty crafts, school projects, DIY projects, bridal creations and gifts, and much more!

Glue Dots are a safe alternative to glue guns. They are versatile and work on a variety of surfaces including: paper/photos, metal, wood, plastic, textiles and fibers, plastic, foam, and more! Glue Dots are a no-mess solution to all adhesive or glue needs. They bonding instantly and require no dry time. They provide instant gratification for both kids and adults. Glue Dots also provide the strength you need in an adhesive without the mess and dry time of liquid glues.

You may visit the Glue Dots Facebook fan page to get more information on Glue Dots. If you are looking for your own project ideas using Glue Dots then look here. They have many wonderful and simple ideas that will keep you and your children busy this summer.

Disclosure: I wrote this blog post while participating in the TwitterMoms and Glue Dots blogging contest to be eligible to receive a $30 gift card. For more information on how you can participate, click here.

How Are You Better Than Ever?

I am member of twittermoms.com and they have asked me to write a post about "How Are You Better Than Ever?" You may read more about that request here.

At 39 I feel that I am better than ever because I am at a good point in my life. My children are 10 and 6 and I am very fortunate to be able to stay at home with them. This summer I had the privilege to watch my 10 year old nephew also. We have filled our summers days with swimming, reading programs, picnics, trips to the park and even a trip to the zoo. I am very fortunate to have a car so that we may travel and do fun things.

I feel that my quality of life is better now also. We are closing on a much larger home later this month. Our home now is 1215 square feet and it's 17 years old. We have lived here for 11 years. Our new home will be 2667 square feet and it will provide room for an office and a media room. We are very excited about this change. We will be getting a fresh start on our home life.

Dove® gofresh™ is sponsoring a Facebook photo contest that you might be interested in. You can share your photos about what's "better than ever" in your life on the Facebook contest page for a chance to win a spa weekend getaway in Sedona, AZ, and thousands of dollars worth of great prize packages from Dove® gofresh™!

Disclosure: I wrote this blog post while participating in the TwitterMoms and Dove® gofresh™ blogging program, making me eligible to get a $25 gift card and some product. For more information on how you can participate, click here.
