What Are You Wearing This Summer?

Disclosure2013 photo Disclosure2013_zps93640645.jpg

What Are You Wearing This Summer?

The summer months are a time to hit the beach, get a tan and enjoy the warm weather before it starts to snow again. If you are going to enjoy the outdoors during the warm season, it is important that you wear clothing that is both comfortable and functional.
Watch Out for the Sun

You want to be sure that you are protecting yourself from sunburn and the skin damage that can come from having burned skin. While you don't need to wrap yourself up in a shawl while at the beach or at a family picnic, you want to make sure that you are covering up the most sensitive parts of your body. If you burn easily, you will also want to have enough sunscreen to keep yourself protected during prolonged periods of outdoor activity.

Keep Something on Your Feet

Although the sand may feel nice under your feet, you don't know what else could be lurking. When you go to a public beach, there is a chance that you could step on broken glass or other debris that could lead to a skin wound. If you have an open wound, you will need to get it treated right away to ensure that it doesn't lead to an infection. Having sandals or sneakers on whenever you are walking around will protect your feet from debris.
Hats Can Keep the Sun Out of Your Eyes

You should never look directly into the sun as it could cause blindness. However, on a sunny day, you may not be able to control how much of the sun's rays head in your direction. Wearing a hat can keep your head shaded and reduce your body temperature as well as keep you from looking right into the sun. Hats can be purchased cheaply and sunglasses can be purchased at most beaches or other outdoor locations.

Before your next outdoor trip, you can go online to purchase Fair Winds Sarongs or other clothing that makes you look and feel good while outdoors. When you are properly clothed, you can enjoy your time outside without worrying about any long-term health issues.

thinkThin Protein & Fiber Bars Review & Giveaway

I received thinkThin Lean Protein & Fiber bars and compensation for the following post. The product, information and gift card compensation were all provided by thinkThin. 

Before I give my review of the thinkThin bars let me give you some information about these amazing bars!

The thinkThin bars were created by former model Lizanne Falsetto during her hectic modeling days. The need for something small and portable to eat on the go gave her the idea to use her grandmother's recipes, but she tweaked them to make something healthier. Getting rid of the extra sugar and gluten and replacing them with more protein and fiber. Soon after her bars were a hit and that's how the thinkThin bars were created.


thinkThin Lean Protein & Fiber bars

· At only 150 calories, thinkThin Lean Protein & Fiber bars deliver the perfect balance of 10g of protein and 5g of fiber to give you energy, and help keep you full and satisfied

· Made with 100% non-GMO ingredients in decadent flavors, these new bars are also low in sugar and gluten-free … making them deliciously guilt-free

· Available in 5 delicious flavors: Chocolate Almond Brownie, Chunky Chocolate Peanut Butter, Salted Caramel, Honey Drizzle Peanut, and Cinnamon Bun White Chocolate




About thinkThin
· From High Protein bars that are certified gluten-free to Crunch Mixed Nuts bars made from non-GMO ingredients, thinkThin believes in using high-quality ingredients that provide a good source of protein.
· thinkThin embraces Weight Wellness®, the balance of physical and emotional wellbeing, and has been recognized byFitness Magazine with a “Healthy Food Award.”


Although some of the thinkThin Crunch mixed nuts bars were good, I wasn't a fan of a few of the other thinkThin bars. It's not that they were bad, I am just picky and when I had my co-blogger Vanessa try the bars she said they were pretty good. So overall I would still give thinkThin products 4.5 stars! If you are curious about these products make sure you visit the thinkThin Facebook, thinkThin Twitter and thinkThin Pinterest pages. They would love to hear from any of One Mom's Moxie's readers.


Having Fun In The Sun & Protecting Your Eyes

I wrote this review while participating in an Influencer campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc. and received a promotional item from Mom Central to thank me for participating.

The summer months are here which means more time being spent outside. I know all my kids love being outside whether they are swimming, riding bikes or having a water balloon fight, so this means applying lots of sunscreen to keep them safe from the suns harmful UV rays. I know that using sunscreen on my kids was necessary but what was protecting their eyes? As much as all my kids play outside, I never gave much thought to what was keeping their precious eyes safe from the UV rays.


Do you know the times of day when the sun is most damaging to eyes? It’s not what you think – research suggests that from Spring through Fall, when the days get longer, the incidence of eye exposure to UV rays is actually greatest earlier and later in the day. Did you know that while direct sunlight can be extremely harmful to the eyes, reflected UV rays (i.e., from water, grass, sand) can be even more harmful?

Take a look at the valuable information and how you can protect your children's eyes.

The Sun, Your Eyes & What You Should Know:

  • CUMULATIVE DAMAGE: Experts say it is difficult to isolate the exact amount of damage that Ultraviolet Radiation (UV) imposes on the eye over a long period of time. However, a number of studies have shown that the effects of UV radiation are mostly cumulative and may increase the chance of developing eye problems later in life, including cataracts, a leading cause of reduced vision in the United States.
  • IRREVERSIBLE: Short-term damage to the eyes may be hard to notice, but over the long-term, the sun can cause irreversible harm to all structures of the eye and surrounding tissue that are left unprotected or under-protected. These conditions may not manifest for years at which point the damage is already done and it is too late to reverse the effects of the sun. That’s why it is important to start protecting eyes from childhood.
  • CHILDREN, TEENS AT GREATER RISK OF EXPOSURE THAN ADULTS: Younger eyes are more susceptible to exposure to the sun’s harmful rays than adults. Children have larger pupils (allowing more light into their eyes), clearer lenses, and are outside without eye protection much more frequently and for longer periods than most adults. It is estimated that a significant amount of lifetime exposure to UV rays may occur by age 18 and that children’s annual dose of UV radiation is three times that of adults.
  • ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS THAT INFLUENCE UV EXPOSURE -Although direct light from the sun itself can be damaging to eyes, reflected ultraviolet (UV) rays from surfaces such as grass, soil, dry sand, water, and snow can also be harmful.  UV protection also is important on a cloudy day as the sun's rays can pass through thin clouds, exposing your eyes to harmful UV radiation
  • SUNGLASSES ALONE SOMETIMES ARE NOT ENOUGH:While most sunglasses can help block UV rays from entering through the lenses, most frame styles do not prevent rays from reaching the eyes from the sides, top, and bottom of the glasses. Hats with brims offer no protection from UV rays reflected up from ground surfaces such as pavement, sand, and water.
  • UV BLOCKING CONTACT LENSES can provide an important level of additional protection from UV exposure. Not all contact lenses offer UV protection, and, of those that do, not all provide similar absorption levels. ACUVUE® is the only major brand of contact lenses which blocks approximately 97%of UV-B and 81% of UV-A rays as standard across the entire range of its products.*
  • ACHIEVING A COMPREHENSIVE MEASURE OF UV PROTECTION: UV absorbing contact lenses are not substitutes for devices like UV-blocking sunglasses as they do not completely cover the eye or the surrounding area. For more comprehensive UV protection, UV-blocking contact lenses should be worn as an added layer of protection in conjunction with high-quality UV-blocking sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat.

After reading this information I decided that there are some changes that need to happen to help protect my children's eyes. My son already wears Acuvue contacts but I will make sure that he knows just how important it is that he continue wearing the Acuvue brand even into adulthood. There is some more great information that you should know, just visit “Fast Facts for Your Health: The Sun & Your Eyes: What You Need to Know” on the ACUVUE® Brand website.


*Although UV-blocking contact lenses are beneficial in helping to protect against harmful UV rays entering into the eye, long-term clinical studies have not been done to show that they directly reduce the risk of any specific eye disease or condition.

Downtown Fresno Grocery Outlet Grand Opening & Two $25 Gift Card's Giveaway



I was thrilled to find out that a new Grocery Outlet would be opening in Downtown Fresno this last May 22nd. Even though I live in Clovis, which is a suburb of Fresno, I still visit the Downtown Fresno area. Plus, a new store is great for our economy! 

For those that are unaware of what the Grocery Outlet Bargain Market is, here is a little rundown. Each Grocery Outlet is independently owned and operated, like a franchise but so much better. All products are sold up to 50% off the retail value. Each Grocery Outlet carries different products, so you can't expect to find the same thing at another location, yes even if they are both in the same city. So when I was asked if I wanted to attend the grand opening, I was more than happy to check out the new store! I arrived at the grand opening with my sister-in-law, Vanessa, a new contributor for One Mom's Moxie. We were both happy to see fresh produce right out front, ripe for the picking. 

Once we made our way inside we were greeted with smiles and everyone working was incredibly helpful. While waiting to meet with Jamie, Grocery Outlet's Marketing Specialist, we had the chance to chat with Cassandra who is training to become a Grocery Outlet owner along with her husband. She explained to us that she was in Downtown Fresno to watch the store owner & operator Chris Caillier open his new store. Her passion for the Grocery Outlet company was unbelievable. Both Vanessa and I left the conversation thinking we could become owners too! So we made our way over to the first aisle to start shopping. It took us twenty minutes just to get down that first aisle! In our defense it was filled with health, beauty, toys, cooking utensils and outdoor items. When we turned the corner we spotted the NOSH sign.


The fact that Grocery Outlet carries Natural, Organic, Specialty and Healthy items is awesome! We are slowly trying to buy natural, organic products but if you have ever bought anything natural, organic then you know how crazy expensive it can be. With the products and prices varying from one Grocery Outlet to another there's no one deal that we can share. Not because we don't want to but it may not be available at your local Grocery Outlet or even this one, but we will say you will be impressed with the variety of NOSH products. This is just one side of the NOSH area. 

We were just looking around when we met with Jamie, Grocery Outlet's Marketing Specialist. She was so incredibly kind and very attentive. Once she knew we had children she excused herself and came back with not one but three of these fabulous Lois Prices bobbleheads! After talking with Jamie we continued shopping. We were both constantly amazed with the low, low prices! Everything was so clean and organized, every aisle was filled with various products but it never felt crowded or overwhelming.


Just as we were finished with our shopping, we had spent two hours going all over the store, we headed to checkout. On the way we spotted the sign below. For all our local readers you don't want to miss your chance to win some cool prizes from the Downtown Fresno Grocery Outlet! There's a chance to win His & Hers Bikes, Fresno Grizzlies Game Pack (we would love to win this!) and Free Groceries for 1 Year! You can still visit the Downtown Fresno to enter for a chance to win until June 27th. Both Vanessa and I entered the giveaway and continued to the checkout.


Our grocery cart was filled to the top! We could have easily filled two or three carts with tons of great brand name products. 


Although we only spoke briefly with the owner Chris when he gave us a free watermelon, pictured above, from what I have read and heard about him he is a very giving person. Not only did the Downtown Grocery Outlet donate $1,000 worth of food to the Fresno Rescue Mission but he has the "Win What You Save" drawings. This means that every time you finish shopping the amount you saved, like the amount that we saved $108.92 pictured below, will be entered into a drawing that is done twice a month. So before you leave the Grocery Outlet make sure to tear off the bottom and put your name and number on the back to enter! Thank you Chris!! 


As we were leaving we couldn't resist spinning the Wheel of Bargains! They had this set-up as part of the grand opening celebration. 


They had some neat prizes. We missed the festivities later that day but they had face painting, food and a special visit by Lois Prices & Ben Saven. You can tell that Grocery Outlet is very family friendly, the employees are so welcoming and acknowledge the children as well. For us showing our children a little attention goes a long way! 

The generosity of the Grocery Outlet seems never ending. They have given us TWO gift cards to giveaway to our readers! So two lucky winners will each get a $25 gift card to use at their local Grocery Outlet Bargain Market.
