Summer in a Box – Giveaway!

Summer is in FULL FORCE here in New England.  We’re in the throws of a legit heat wave, with temps hovering around 100 degrees today…ew.

Luckily me and the pooch have been staying cool in the house.  Best $300 I’ve ever spent on a nice big AC for the downstairs! 

Since everything lately is screaming summer, I thought this would be a perfect time to let you know about a fun giveaway!!

The awesome crew over at Stonyfield (you know, the home of your favorite organic dairy products!), let me know about one of their newest cool products.

Organic Frozen Yogurt Bars!!

“They’re the first dark chocolate dipped frozen yogurt bars on the market and they’re made with pure, organic ingredients. Because they’re certified organic, they’re produced without toxic pesticides, growth hormones, antibiotics or anything else that’s harmful to you or the environment. Each bar only has 170 calories —about 30% less than the leading ice cream bars!”

Um, yes please!  IMG_0122

Now, this was a little tease to me because even though I’m in the possession of coupons for FREE frozen yogurt bars…they are still a few weeks away from being carried in the Boston area.  However, they are currently available in CA, FL, parts of the South, and NYC! 

Not too worry, along with the coupons I was sent a whole box full of amazing products to try out while I wait for my dessert :)

The best part is that I get to share the exact same Summer In a Box (along with those coupons) to one lucky reader!!  It’s their way to help us go organic this summer!

Check this out!!

Here’s some info that was sent to me on these great products:

Two coupons for Stonyfield Frozen Yogurt Bars in two delicious flavors: Gotta Have Vanilla, and After Dark Chocolate. These bars, made with organic milk, are dipped in rich dark chocolate, and contain four live and active cultures, keeping you healthy while enjoying a sweet treat.

Badger After-Sun Balm: A certified organic treat for sun-parched skin. Made with moisturizing plant butters and infused with soothing Blue Tansy and Lavender to make your skin feel smooth and leave you feeling calm.

Luckily I haven’t had a bad sunburn this summer!! (knock on wood), but I did try this out one day after the beach and it smells so good and is really soothing!

Dr. Hauschka Melissa Day Cream: This new 100% natural moisturizer is perfect for combination skin. Formulated with extracts of melissa (lemon balm), it smells like fresh squeezed lemonade. Additionally, extracts of anthyllis, carrot, witch hazel and English daisy soothe, soften and even the complexion so shine is controlled and skin is moisturized.

Smells SO good!!

Simply White, the first and only clinically proven natural whitening toothpaste to earn an ADA seal, helps bring back the natural beauty of your smile.

Minty fresh, so far really liking it!

 The Daily Moisture Body Bar has an ultra-rich bar soap formula that contains premium moisturizing olive oil, natural vitamin E and leaves your skin clean and fresh.

I’ve been trying this out all week instead of my normal body wash.  I LOVE the smell, and don’t miss my body wash at all!

Beautiful Earth Deodorant works to inhibit the growth of odor-causing bacteria and its natural, refreshing fragrance helps mask odor.

I’ve actually been wanting to try out a natural deodorant for a while now but usually don’t think of it until I’m at Target and they never carry it.  So far so good!  I’ve never been one to need a strong deodorant, but for me it works great.

Uncle Matt’s Organic Lemonade and Juices: By buying Uncle Matt’s fresh fruit and juice you’re helping more than 20 small growers that make up their family of farms. That's one of the reasons they’re proud to be family owned and organically grown. Use this free coupon to pick up your choice of organic juice or lemonade and quench your thirst for summer! (coupon for a free bottle)

Awesome right??

All of this could be yours…
