This July, show and share the LOVE for parks and recreation! Chance to Win Gift Cards for sharing your pics!

This July, show and share the LOVE for parks and recreation!

Do you LOVE your local parks and recreation? Then go on, brag about it this July and tell everyone what makes them so great! You might even WIN some great PRIZES!

Absolutely, love, nature.  There would be no life, without it. This was a collage I did for Earth Day.

Check out the Show UR Love for Parks and Recreation Weekly Photo Contest! Submit photos that express your love for local parks and recreation areas following our weekly themes and get your friends to vote. We'll be rewarding weekly prizes of $100 gift cards and a grand prize of one $500 gift card at the end of the month. Find out more information and get those cameras ready!

I absolutely love our Metro Parks here in Central Ohio.  Below is from my last trip to High Banks.

Find participating Park and Recreation Month locations. We'll be updating this list frequently so check back! If you don't see your local park and rec on here, don't worry! Check your local listings to see what might be going on in your community.

Don't forget to follow National Recreation and Park Association on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest!

July is national Park and Recreation Month and your local parks are encouraging everyone to come out this month and experience all the wonderful aspects of parks and recreation. Nationwide, recreation departments have organized events and activities to help families spend quality time together, enjoy nature and get active. This provides a great opportunity to not only make the most of the beautiful weather, but also to take a stand against the obesity epidemic and technology trends that consistently keep more kids indoors and living less active lifestyles.

As part of Park and Recreation Month, the National Recreation and Park Association is encouraging everyone to show the love for local parks and recreation and wants everyone to answer the question, "I Love my Parks and Recreation Because..." They have a fill in the blank social media poster that can be filled in and shared, and a fun month-long weekly photo contest that encourages everyone to show and share the LOVE for local parks!The NRPA website includes information on all of the above initiatives, free downloadable resources as well as a calendar of events scheduled nationwide.

With kids out of school, the vacation celebration includes bouncing off the walls and fighting over the TV, tablet and computer screen. Think about your summer days as a kid - spending time outside hunting for salamanders, playing kickball with neighborhood friends, exploring the trails and woods, fun summer camp days at your local rec center, and swimming until your fingers shriveled. Many of us have so many happy memories from summertime and want our children to have those same experiences too.

While we can always tell them of the fun we had as kids, it is so much better to show them. And you know what, you don't have to go far to have these enriching experiences that make lasting memories - you just have to head to your local parks and recreation. There are great places right in your community to go have some family fun all summer long!

Show your LOVE!

Download and print out the official Park and Recreation Month poster and fill in the blank with the reasons you love your local park and recreation in your community! Then take a picture or even video yourself, family, and friends with this poster so you can show the LOVE.

Post the photos and videos to Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest, Websites, and blogs. Tag NRPA and/or email the link to Use the hashtag #ParkRecLuv!

They'll be featuring many of these photos in social media posts, on  Facebook covers and possibly in future issues of our magazine! Please note, Park and Recreation Month is a family-friendly activity. Please no distasteful or vulgar photos or videos.

This was a sponsored Ad, tho I do love our local parks, and I believe sometimes we do have to go out, and breath in some fresh, clean air when we can.  So I think it's a great thing to take our children out. The nature photos are of parks I've been to in Ohio! Hope you enjoyed, and take your loved ones out too.

Bottled Tea that is still Tea!! Honest Tea.

Love, love, love these teas from Honest Tea.  With flavors like, Honey Green Tea, Half & Half Sweet Tea, not too Sweet Tea, Peach White Tea, and even Honest ade, Pomegranate Blue, and Orange Mango you seriously have a flavor for every mood you're in.

I'm one of those people that can't drink the same things, over and over again.  I like to be able to have an option, on what I'm feeling for the day. I also have those lazy days that I don't feel like brewing my own tea either.

Maybe I'm in the mood for Rasberry Fields Tea, Peach Oo-La Long Tea, Just Black Tea, Moroccan Mint Green Tea, or just Green Tea.  Why should I feel guilty about not making my own tea when Honest Tea has Organic, USDA Grade Teas that you can actually taste the tea, and not the overly sweet, and fake flavors in some of the other Bottled Teas out there. Honest Tea also uses PET plastic bottles.  There are NO GMO's in Honest Tea either.  I will never understand why things like that have to be added to our drinks.  I went straight for the Moroccan Mint Green Tea.  It wasn't sweet, which I like, and I could taste the tea with just a hint of mint.  I can't stand flavors that overpower each other, and this is just blended perfectly. Honest Teas are all pretty low calorie,  the Moroccan Mint Green Tea is only 34 calories for the whole bottle.  That's not even all of their flavors, there are SO MANY different flavors, even zero calorie teas, and Honest Kids pouches.  You should check them out on their website, Honest Tea on Facebook, and Honest Tea on Twitter.  
Honestly, there is nothing to NOT love about these flavors of tea.  I find it admirable, and believe more companies should take que from Honest Tea for investing in Fair Trade and securing organic ingredients to promote organic agriculture. When did Tea stop being tea?? Not the case with Honest Tea. 

I received product to facilitate an Honest Review.

New #Purex Fabric Softener Sheets! Review & #Giveaway!

Being a Purex Insider has its perks! I just received the new Purex Fabric Softener Sheets for Mountain Breeze.  If you are familiar with the Detergent you know it's a fresh air, clean, water aroma.  It's not perfumey, and it's not too bland.  I would consider it just a clean scent.

To get the full effect of Mountain Breeze Dryer Sheets, I used the Mountain Breeze Detergent first (You don't have to, but I already love the Mountain Breeze smell, it's my favorite Purex, next to the Purex with Oxi.) Soon as I removed a sheet from the box, I wanted to see how well it unfolded.  Unfolded it tripled in size.  

Once the clothes were done in the wash, I put them, and just one dryer sheet into the dryer.  While the clothes were drying I could smell the Mountain Breeze through out the house.  I absolutely love the smell of clean laundry being done.  My laundry room is in its own double closet with double doors between the living room, and kitchen.  I think I really enjoy it because the house smells Clean, and hubby comes home thinking I did a lot that day.  Shhhh. 

While folding the clothes, I liked the fact there was no static cling, and the clothes were soft, and still could smell the fresh scent. 

Overall verdict: Great fabric softener sheet, and I will continue to use them!

Walks The Walk Giveaway, and Geritol Review! Win A $25.00 GC, Multivitamins, and pedometers.

I have been taking Geritol Multivitamins for about a month now.  What I like about these vitamins is it's lack of taste.  There is no weird vitamin after taste at all.  I also like that the pills are normal sized, and not monsterious. 

What made me want to try Geritol was the balance of 26 essential vitamins & minerals all into one pill.  

What made me continue to take the vitamins, was it's energy support from B-Vitamins, Immune system support from antioxidants, and Bone Health Support from Vitamin D. 

I am a firm believer that even if I eat as many fresh vegetables, and fruits, I am still not getting all the vitamins my body needs.  That is why I take vitamins.  It really is annoying when multivitamins want you to take a few a day for serving size.  Also, always remember to ask a doctor before taking any kind of pills, even multivitamins.  

I like how these vitamins make me feel.  I've been getting up earlier, and going to bed sooner.  

Does Contain Soy, and you can take the tablet daily immediately before, during, or after a meal.  Age 12+.

Enter to win a bottle of Geritol Multivitamins, and a $25.00 Giftcard that can be used to buy a new pair of New Balanced Sneakers, along with two Geritol Pedometers to go out walking with. 

Mystery Combo Word.  Hint: _ _ _ _  - _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Dragon & Phoenix Filtering Tea Mug, and Cherry Almond Black Tea Review.

I have always been a huge fan of tea.  A good cup of tea helps me de-stress myself.  Even at a young age, I would drink Tea with some of my Aunts.  It was our thing to do.  Over the years, I would much rather drink Tea, than Sodas too.  It's just what I love.  A lot don't know this, but the Green in my blog name is for Green Tea.  Vics is for my Son's name.  Two things that I love more than anything.

I discovered, and just had to try some of their loose leaf teas.  Since it was my husbands, and I's anniversary I thought a matching set of the Dragon & Phoenix Filtering Tea Mugs would be ideal. They are! The pictures online do not do the cups justice.  They are beautiful.  I actually have a dragon tattoo, so I'm a little biased when it comes to them.  I think we all need a little power, good fortune, and luck.  The Phoenix is just as iconic, and full of meaning.  As for life, we are all knocked down, and want to rise from our own ashes.  That is what life is,  things happen, you do everything you can to overcome it, and move on.  

The above video I took to show just how easy it is to brew your own cup of tea.  Nothing special to do. Just add the tea, pour hot water over the tea, put the lid on, and let it steep.  The lids themself help steep the tea faster, and keeps it hot for longer.  Not all mugs have that, or the removeable filter.  In the video I show how beautiful the tea turns out once the filter is lifted up.  You can also see how none of the loose leaf tea even gets into the brewed tea itself.  These Dragon & Phoenix mugs retail for under $10.00.  Each Mug is sold seperately, one side is a dragon, and the other side is a pheonix that wraps around the mugs.  If mythical beings aren't your thing, there are other designs for the filtering tea mugs.

I really enjoyed the Cherry Almond Black loose leaf tea.  There are pieces of sliced almonds, and dried cherries through out the tea itself.  I was impressed with the quality, and the smell of the tea as soon as I even opened the tin lid's, and even more so once the tea started to steep.  I am also going to try the Liche Green Tea, and Japanese Green Tea.  I drink green tea mostly, so I wanted to try the Cherry Almond Black Tea first.  Both myself, and my husband thought the tea was strong (just the way we like it, you should be able to taste the tea.) and went down smoothely.  I could taste the almond, and cherry, gave it a nice extra sweetness that the stevia sugar I used in it amplified.  I also like a little fat free milk in my tea.  I'm ready for another cup.

There will also be a giveaway for a Smart Tea Maker, and 4 ounces of the winners choice of tea! So make sure you come back to check that out.  I promise you, you will not be dissapointed!

Hasbro Bejeweled Frenzy Board Game Review!

Just played a 2 A.M. Game of Bejeweled Frenzy with the hubby.  He's on vacation this week so I figured why not?? We only live once right, lol.

Once you open the game, you remove a little plastic case (it's sealed pretty tight so pieces can't fall out.) You have to open the individual cards.  They need to be put together into one pile and shuffled.

Game play can be for up to 4 people.  For each person, that's how many cards you play.  Dealer plays first. First person to get 3 gems in a row, win's that Boost Gem (Worth 5 points.)  Also you "Collapse" that stack by placing all 3 ontop of eachother when you line up 3.  And move it back into your line up.  Multiple matches are allowed, so you can keep getting points til all your piles for that are collapsed, and it's the next players turn.  Keep playing counter clock wise til the cards run out. You get 1 point for each card in your tallest stack + the 5 Gem Boost points if you were the first to get that match up.

I didn't think we'd get into it this much, but it was pretty competitive.  The game is for Ages 8+ but I believe board games are age-less! Some nights we even break out games like Don't break the Ice.  So really,  anything can be fun if you are playing with someone you enjoy being around.  That, or if they are just as competitive as you are.

I won this game! He keeps saying he wants a rematch.  That is was beginners luck.  Tho, I will take whatever win I can get.

Love my Ryobi Drill. Also bonus that it's easy to find replacement parts for it.

I grew up around builders, electricitians, and HVAC workers.  My dad is a master electrician, so there were always drills on chargers in our house.  My mom was the one that did HVAC work.  Actually built the boxes for vents out of sheet metal, and installed them to the wooden frames in homes.  My family has always been very hands on, and could fix things themselves because of that, I have inheritated that gene too.  The, Do It Myself, for things.  If I need something cut, nailed, or drilled.  I know how to.  I can even hang dry wall, and paint.  A lot of people don't know that about me.  But, I've done jobs installing insulation into attics before, it pays great.  Very physical job, but the pay is good.

Since I am a firm believer in, having the right tools for the right job.  I have discovered that Ryobi has the best price, and attachment parts for everything.  I have the drill, and what I like about it is, from bits, to lithium batteries, to even the motor in the drill all can be replaced if something goes wrong.  I tell people all the time that electronics aren't forever, that sometimes upkeep is a must.  So along with warranties, and parts! Anything can be fixed today for little, or even no money! Ryobi is just a great company. Replacement parts for the  Ryobi drill I have are very easy to find online. It's as simple as typing in a product number.

Harvey Prince Anti-Aging Perfume™ Review. Smell as young as you feel.

Who really wants to age? No one! With that being said, who really wants to smell old and musky either?? No one! I personally don't like perfumes that are too musky, and deep when one note overpowers the other. I'm a huge fan of perfume that plays off the skins natural chemistry.  Since our chemistry is natural, wouldn't it make more sense for companies to use natural oils too? You would think?  That is exactly what Harvey Prince has conjured up.  A perfume that has the anti-oxidant quality in grapefruits, and other natural oils.

I've had the enjoyment of tantalizing the senses with Ageless, the Anti-Aging Perfume™. My favorite thing about this perfume is, depending on myself, and my skin, I swear the scents change on me. Some days I can smell the grapefruit more, and other days I can really pick up the cherry blossom & vanilla. There are a ton of other notes that surprise me too. The notes are: pink grapefruit, pineapple, mango, apple, leafy green, pomegranate, jasmin, lily of the valley, cherry blossom, peony, soft musk, precious woods, and vanilla. Most just makes me hungry! It does smell delicious on the skin.  I am completely a creature of impulse, and feeling. I like my perfume to reflect that too. I have not met a Harvey Prince scent that I did not like! Or better yet, that did not like my skin.

Today is my birthday.  In celebration of turning 31, and the wonderful Harvey Prince, 5 of you have the chance to try Ageless too.  Go here to enter the giveaway! Thank you for the support! Giveaways are only fun when people enter! So, thank you for entering. <3

Harvey Prince Submariner Review (Natural Light Blue Aquatic Spray.)

Harvey Prince creates some of my favorite Natural Sprays.  If you've never heard of Harvey Prince, you should really try them out.  At first they started making Perfume for their Mom, a better alternative than the scents that were out there, and harsh on the skin.

Recently they started a mens scent called Submariner.  It's a light blue spray with aquadic notes.  I have bought my hubby other blue scents before from other colognes, but none of them have ever been Natural like Harvey Prince.  The notes are, Citrus, Nutmeg, Amber, Tonka, and Blonde Woods. Nothing is overpowering, or too musky.

I asked my husband what he thought about Submariner, and he said, "Effortless natural essence of a man." He likes the scent, and wears it before leaving for work.  It also lasts all day too.

Sometimes I come downstairs after he leaves for work, and I smell it in the air still.  Makes me miss him.

Even if they started off just doing scents for women, they have created something manly, and not overpowering with Submariner too.  I can't wait to see what other eco-friendly scents Harvey Prince comes up with.

Build-A-Bear Workshop Color Popz! Jazzy Frog! Check out his cool shades!

We've turned into such the Build-A-Bear Workshop loving family!  To where, I am always on the look out for what is new in stores, and what promos they have on the website now.  The cool thing about Build-A-Bear, even if you don't have a kid, you can still have your own! No matter at what age you are.  Personally, my favorites are the Hello Kittys.  My son, loves the Bunnies, and Frogs.  My husband, keeps it old school, and is a fan of the Curly Bear.  I'm sure something else will come out, and I'll adore that too.  

We recently received the 18" Jazzy Frog that is in the new  Build-A-Bear Color Popz Line to review! He comes with some retro green shades.  My son never cared for Sun glasses before, but when his Cool dude Jazzy came, he started wearing sun glasses too. Love, love, love how playful the Color Popz collection is!! We call him his Jazzy Fresh Frog.   I really believe Jazzy matches Sy's personality! Bright, Playful, and just completely AWESOME.  They also have matching summer sandals.  

If you've never been to a Build-A-Bear, you can also go online to, and find some great deals that way too.  After chosing what member you want to adopt into your family (comes with birth certificate too.) you also have the option to "Dress Me" next to the "Add To Basket" button.  Which makes it extremely easy to find an outfit for your personal style.  I also like the fact that there are Sales too! So make sure to check out the Sale Den for 20-50% off Sales.

Don't forget you can also find Build-A-Bear on Facebook, and  Build-A-Bear on Twitter.
