Friday's Fab Finds

The first official week of summer is at its end, and it's been kind of crazy around here. Disastrous swim lessons (don't ask), zoo trips, tall ships and a giant rubber duck - so much going in Philly! Time to round up a few of our favorite things this week:

Lori's picks:

Ring Rash Relief!
If you read our Fab Finds last Friday, you'll remember I tried a ring rash relief and I'm happy to report it worked. I haven't taken my rings off in a week and not an ounce of redness or itchiness. F-YEAH! To read more about the instructions I used that I can vouch as 100% effective, go here.

Big Brother
If you're a loyal fan or are new to Big Brother, it's not too late to start watching. There have only been 2 episodes this week (Wednesday and Thursday night) so you can most certainly catch up now. After a few episodes I guarantee you'll be hooked and will be begging for more than the already 3 hour-long episodes they have each week. It's a big commitment but trust me, you won't mind. Plus, you can chat with me about it and always have something on your DVR all summer long.

Watermelon ice cubes
I don't make cakes, I barely make dinner, and I don't throw my kid pinteresting birthday parties, but every now and again I find something on Pinterest that I'll actually do. This week's earth shattering breakthrough was watermelon ice cubes. All you do is cut up a watermelon (or buy it cut, although even *I* don't even do this because they charge an arm and a leg for it) and freeze the cut up pieces in a plastic bag.  I drink an f-ton of seltzer so I added a few watermelon ice cubes and it gave my sparkling water a nice little flavor and color. Thinking of adding them to a vodka soda this weekend. They also make a nice snack for the kiddos. I gave pieces to my son at the zoo during the week and it was a nice, cool snack that he couldn't blow right through like he normally does.

Kristin's picks:

Crest 3D White Luxe Glamorous White Toothpaste
I've tried Crest White Strips a few times over the years, but I hate putting them on, they taste weird, they're expensive, and frankly I'm just lazy and never remember to do it. That being said, I haven't tried the strips in probably a decade (even though they did work). I spotted this whitening toothpaste on sale at Target yesterday and figured I'd give it a go since it requires a lot less effort. It promises to remove up to 90% of stains in five days, so I'll report back next week on the results!

Golden Girls Makeup Bag
Lori saw this about a month ago and sent me the link, and as a huge GG fan obviously I had to get one. They're handmade in Austin, Texas by an artist named Kayci Wheatley, and so freaking cute. If you know someone who loves Sophia, Blanche, Rose and Dorothy this is a must-have gift, and at $29.99 it won't cost an arm and a leg for something unique. And even if you don't love The Girls, they sell a variety of other celeb pouches like Full House, Madonna, Biggie Smalls, Marc Jacobs, the list goes on. The site where I bought it,, has loads of other cute stuff as well!

That's it for this week - we'll be back after the weekend with Momma Mondays as usual!
