Armpocket Review and Giveaway (Ends 8/12)

I really enjoy exercising but I get frustrated having to carry my phone, keys, ID and other essentials around with me. In the past I have tried several options but none of them really worked for me. When I heard about I was very excited to have the opportunity to try it. Armpocket was actually developed by a team of athletes who wanted to find a solution to a problem. They needed to find a way to be able to carry the essentials with them on a run or at they gym but didn’t want to be weighed down or have them get in the way.

Armpocket features touch window control, headphone port, no slip memory foam and a comfortable vented strap. I have tried other arm devices in the past that would slip and it was always so frustrating. I also couldn’t control my device through the screen. Armpocket is wonderfully designed with these issues in mind. I also love that they are water resistant and machine washable not to mention that they are made from bamboo and recycled products!

They offer the Armpocket in several different models for Blackberry, iPhone, Samsung Galaxy Note 2, and other smartphones. They also make accommodations for cases including Otterbox style cases.  I went with the Armpocket Sport i-20 in Red for my iPhone 4s. Each style is offered in a variety of colors with different strap lengths. The Armpocket Sport i-20 claims to be spacious and able to hold your smartphone, keys, cash, credit cards, tissues, energy gels and more. I have a slim Speck case on my phone and it fit perfectly. I doubt any bulkier case would have fit in this model but they do offer other styles for larger phones and cases.

I really like that there’s an elastic strap that holds the phone in place while still offering room for other things in the compartment. The Armpocket i-20 also has slots for two ID’s or credit cards. With my phone and cards in place the empty space in the Armpocket i-20 is about the size of my iPhone 4s including its case.My keys certainly wouldn’t fit but my husband’s would. I could always only put in the essential keys. The amount of storage that it offers is perfect for a run or trip to the gym. I loved being hands free and was also impressed that it didn’t slip off my arm as I ran. It did take some getting used to exercising with something strapped to my arm but that only took a couple workouts before it felt really natural and the convenience is amazing!

My Armpocket i-20 is wonderful! It is appropriately priced at $19.99 and offers the perfect amount of storage for the essentials.

Tree Hut Body Care Review and Giveaway (Ends 4/23)

As my belly has grown with this pregnancy I have definitely noticed my skin getting dry and itchy.  I know it is a common ailment for pregnant mamas but not a fun one.  I need to note quickly that I am very sensitive to scents.  Certain smells trigger migraines for me I I have to be careful with the lotions I use.  I will be describing the smell of the products to help anyone who is might have the same issue as well as the product performance.

I was so happy to find my review items on my porch around the same time that

I was feeling the need for an extra moisturizing lotion to sooth my belly.  I opened the package and immediately slathered my baby bump with the Original Shea Body Butter.  It has a deep nutty fragrance and it is very thick (as body butter should be).  I have continued to use it day and night these past few weeks and I am happy to report that my belly is staying moisturized and I do not have that annoying itchy feeling.

I also received the Coconut Lime Sugar Scrub, Almond and Honey Lotion and Amazon Pequi Body Wash.  I really like the sweet almond honey scent of the lotion.  It is not overpowering and smells super yummy.  The lotion is a much lighter formula than the body butter so it is great to use on arms and legs.  For me the body butter is too thick to use all over my body, but great to use on areas that need extra moisture such as hands, feet, elbows, and pregnant bellies. 


I am new to sugar scrubs so I do not have a lot to compare the Coconut Lime Sugar Scrub to, but I really like how it gently exfoliates when I use it.  The smell reminds me of summer with the scent of coconut and a touch of lime.  It leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth.  Tree Hut has included Shea butter as well as other natural oils to moisturize

the skin while it exfoliates.  I have to say that I am getting a little addicted to the sugar scrub.

The light fresh scent of the Amazon Pequi Body Wash is great to wake you up in the morning.  It has a slight floral smell but very clean and fresh.  As with the other Tree Hut products the body wash is also infused with moisturizing ingredients so that it does not dry out the skin.

I have really enjoyed using my body care items and I  fully recommend them to our readers.

BUY IT:  You can get your hands on Tree Hut products through many local retailers such as Target, Ulta, Walmart, Kroger, Fred Meyer, and Harmon.  You can also order online through .

WIN IT: One lucky YGTB fan will win a gift pack of the same 4 products I reviewed!  Enter Below.

Good Luck! Thank you for entering our giveaways!

Potomac Products Health Line Vitamins Review


is a private label vitamin and nutritional supplements distributor.  They provide their customers with the best quality private label vitamins, dietary supplements and herbal supplements possible. Everything is 100% natural!


Potomac Products Health Line has a huge selection of for just about anything. Prenatal, weight loss , sleep aid, men’s health, women’s health, cholesterol.  I am a big believer in natural products and also vitamins. My grandmother and Mom have always been into vitamins and if something ails me they are always there with a suggestion or tip of something I can take.

I was very excited to give the Sleep Aid from the Potomac Product Health Line a try.   The Sleep Aid contains Magnesium Oxide to promote relaxation . This sleep aid helps you to fall asleep and stay asleep. I have a terrible time doing both. I’m a bit of  night owl. I could honestly stay up all night long, and then pay for it dearly the next day . I’m also a very restless sleeper. I  wake several times from a sound sleep its just terrible.  So, sometimes when I am overly tired I will take something to help me.  I found this Sleep Aid works well for me.  It did not leave me overly groggy the next day which is something I often find to be an issue with other over the counter remedies.  Plus it supports natural , healthy REM sleep.

Ironically enough my husband  had just told me ,”hey I’ve decided to be healthier so I am taking your vitamins.”  Now picture me frowning at him.  That same day my box from Potomac Health arrived and in it was a bottle of the Men’s Multivitamin.  The men’s multivitamin contains Zinc to promote sperm mobility and Niacin for heart health. It also helps to lower cholesterol and build a healthier immune system.  I happily handed it over to him with a smile and an “I got you covered J.”  J. seems to be taking the multivitamin with no issue. He prefers to take them in the evening as I also do.

How I organize and Keep track of my weekly vitamins.



Here is a friendly tip to help you organize.  If you take several different vitamins for your health and   need a way to keep them organized here is a suggestion. This is how I keep track of what I have taken and not each week.  Some of my pills I take every day while others I only take every other.  I put my weeks supply in this easy container and helps keep me on track.


I also received a bottle of the Vitamin B complex.  Vitamin B has several great benefits if you don’t know about it. Including reducing the risk of heart disease and aiding the cells in burning fat. I already currently take a Vitamin B, so I’m going to wait to open the Potomac. I imagine if it is like the rest of the Health Line I will be pleased.


I am thrilled to tell you that  all of the Potomac Products Health Line are  a very affordable price.  Which means a lot to this Mom on a budget. If you are looking for affordable vitamins, dietary or herbal supplements I encourage you to visit Potomac Health.
