My list of Summer Must-Buys!

Can you believe that summer is here? I love this time of year! Here are some of my favorite items for this season!

Virgil’s Brings Back Dr. Better for Limited Time Only! It actually has been available since this past Spring but I am loving making soda floats with it this Summer!

The Dr. that is just better is back – this mouthwatering handcrafted beverage is formulated with premium natural ingredients, including tart cherry, sweet raspberry, and spicy cinnamon, and now with caffeine. Just like all Virgil’s products, Dr. Better is made without artificial ingredients or preservatives but still maintains that naturally bold, handcrafted flavor.

Get it delivered right to your doorsteps! The limited-edition offering retails exclusively online in 12-Can Fridge Packs on the Virgil’s Store for $30 and Amazon for $32.99.

This next item is a must-have especially since Mosquitoes and Spiders seem to be more frequent during the summer!

Enjoy Instant Itch Relief From bite away As Mosquitoes Return This Summer! You can count on bite away to provide fast, mess-free relief for a sting-free Summer!

Using a pulse of targeted heat, bite away triggers a response from the body that helps reduce the itching and swelling caused by mosquito bites. With its small and sleek design, bite away is the perfect tool to keep on-hand whether you’re out for a walk, picnicking in the park, or on your next outdoor family adventure. I like that it is really simple to use and that my teenage son can use it on his own. And, it seems to work! The included batteries last for about 300 uses!

How It Works

·       Place the ceramic surface of bite away on the bite or sting

·       Press the button just once

·       A few seconds of targeted heat can reduce swelling and remove the itch or pain associated with insect bites

·       Feel the relief and enjoy the rest of your day!

Zak Helping Moms and Dads Stay Fashionably Hydrated this Summer!

Zak’s new Viola and Neo Mint color stories stay on-trend with contrasting shades that stand out on their own and create a complementary statement of style when paired together. To give active moms and Dads as many opportunities as possible to showcase these stylish shades this summer, Zak is featuring both color selections on a wide range of its most popular travel tumblers and water bottles.

From double-wall vacuum insulated tumblers that keep hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold for hours, to the multiple sizes and styles of the innovative Flex water bottles, Zak’s Viola and Neo Mint selection provides plenty of options to fit with almost any activity. So no matter where their busy day takes them, Moms and Dads can stay hydrated– and look great doing it! I absolutely love the Genesis 24 ounce Vaccum Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle, Neo Mint. The lid has a hygienic cover to keep the spout clean, which opens easily at the push of a button. Vacuum insulation keeps your drinks cold for longer, and prevents condensation from forming. Your grip will stay secure, with grooves molded into the sides of the 24-ounce stainless steel bottle and a carrying handle built into the lid. It also fits in car cup holders for travel.

All of the delightful sauces are plant-based, gluten-free, non-GMO, keto-friendly, soy-free, and t0p 8 allergy-friendly. Both the Jalapenoholic and Tahiniholic are Vegan Certified. Three crave-able sauces are available, including Jalapenoholic, Tahiniholic, and Honey Aleppo Holic. I think that my favorite is the Spicy Jalapenocholic sauce!
