Elevate Your Sock Game with Magic Socks {Giveaway}

There are two things that people are self conscious about when asked to remove their socks in someone’s home 1. Foot odor and 2. Holey socks. The MP Team has a solution to the first (and kind of to the second when you think about it). Magic Socks are “the world’s best ordorless socks,” they’re infused with silver, copper and zinc which have antibacterial properties and keep the socks from getting that dirty gym sock smell that everyone has tried to forget from high school phys ed class.

As the warmer months are upon us and many of us look to the great outdoors as our gym (hiking, biking, walking, etc) the idea of sweaty, smelly feet is even more concerning, so having a solution seems like – well – magic.

But how magical are these socks? Do they really work?

I tested them out for 7 days of normal use (no crazy marathons or anything) to see if they would start to smell. Although I don’t recommend going a week without washing your socks (nor I I plan to again), I was pleasantly surprised with the results. My findings are below. (If you’re just here for the giveaway, keep on scrolling.)

Plant-Based and Personalized Vegan Meals

I received a VegReady sample free of charge for the purposes of testing, however all opinions are my own.

Even though I’m not vegan or vegetarian (here’s the difference if you don’t know), I try to have at least one meet-free meal per day. So when the folks at VegReady offered to send me one of their snacks to try out, I gladly accepted.

VegReady provides vegan meals that are healthy and ready to eat. They offer a variety of options and don’t require refrigeration which makes them easy to take with you. Coming in 2018, you can order meals matched to your DNA.

I received a Mango & Jalapeno Quinoa Snack to test out. VegReady products are ready to eat, so you literally just open it up and dig in. Continue reading

Contain Yourself {Cleveland Got a Container Store!}

The Container Store (The Original Storage and Organization Store) in Beachwood has been open for a couple of months now, but I just recently found time to get my Westside self out to the Eastside to do some storage shopping.

Do you follow me on Pinterest? If so, you may have noticed that I have a board dedicated to organization obsessions. I’m slightly obsessed with finding new ways to organize and store stuff.

My very pregnant friend Natalie and I met up for lunch and a visit to the Container Store for no other purpose than to explore. I’d never been in one before, because there weren’t any local, but I’d browsed online. Let me say, browsing in the store is so much better!

We walked down nearly every aisle of the store. Continue reading

Massage Heights Review

I was provided with free services from Massage Heights in return for a blog review. All opinions are my own.

Massage can alleviate back pain, headaches and a variety of other issues beyond just relaxation. However, most people who get massages do so in order to relax.

Which is why I was thrilled to accept the offer from Massage Heights to review their services at one of their Cleveland area retreats.

I had an appointment for a one-hour massage and foot scrub on a rainy Saturday morning at the Massage Heights location at Crocker Park.
