It’s early August and it’s on all of our minds… School! We go back to school in just a couple of weeks and I’m sure if you haven’t already started back, you will soon. That’s why I’m so excited to join in this next Sampler event all about Back to School and some great brands that make it an exciting time! The Back to School Event is coming to Facebook next week! I participated in this same event last year and found so many great new-to-me brands that I still use daily and I can’t wait to show you the sponsors that are participating this year!
As I’ve participated in Sampler events before, I hope you have too. Back to School will happen on Facebook, like the other events before and I’m so excited to be one of the featured bloggers to bring you this super fun experience! If you haven’t participated in a Sampler Event before, no worries, I’ll explain the whole process right here in this blog post to get you ready!
There are 2 Main Components to the Back to School Event: RSVP Gift Basket and Sampling Events.
First – you WANT to RSVP, believe me. Not only will you be entered to win that AMAZING gift basket above, you’ll also get access to the events calendar. On the calendar, you’ll see more about the amazing sponsors and all the events coming next week! For the sampling events you have to be prepared and that calendar will definitely get you ready!
RSVPing is super simple – so simple that you’ve already done it, if you clicked on that link above!
Here’s where our friends at Sampler come in and where the freebies get fun! You’ll want to be sure you have a friend to attend this event with as you’ll be sending samples to friends and they can send them to you! The “samples” will vary [full size products, coupons, and much more!] and you’ll find some FABULOUS brands participating – you do NOT want to miss these free samples!
It’s important to understand that YOU send a sample to a FRIEND.
You can send up to 3, in fact.
So it’s a great idea to have a buddy [or two] for next week!
Now, let’s have a look at the amazing brands you’ll see as a part of this event, shall we?
Everybody wants to go back to school refreshed and that’s exactly what you’ll be when you treat yourself to these 7th Heaven Tea Tree Peel Off Face Masks!
7th Heaven just celebrated 30 years in the business and they’re definitely a brand that I rely on when it comes to re-energizing myself and my skin. This peel off mask contains Tea Tree and Witch Hazel which helps to clean impurities, and calm skin… something I definitely need at back to school time.
Check out the 7th Heaven website, including their other great products [I’m dying to try that Charcoal Masque next!], then get ready for their sampling event that will happen HERE. [Check the calendar for specific date and time!]
If there’s one thing that is on my mind when it comes to back to school time, it’s definitely “What am I going to put in the lunch box?!” Since Sophia struggles with food allergies, she takes her lunch to school every day, which means I have to think of foods to put inside that lunch box every day that she’ll love, but that are also good for her to eat.
Bitsy’s Brainfood Smart Crackers tout that they come “From Farm to Playground” which seems just about right to me! These delicious little crackers have become a favorite around our house the past few weeks and I know they’ll be the perfect lunch box addition. With “hidden veggies” in flavors like Maple Carrot Crisp and Cheddar Chia Veggie, they’re sure to please both you and your little ones! They are certified USDA Organic AND contain a half serving of organic vegetables per serving! I am loving these with a side of hummus too!
You do not want to miss this Sampling Event next week. You’ll find it HERE. [Check the calendar for specific date and time!]
Oh, office supplies, how I love thee! Does anyone else find themselves being drawn to the office supply section of any store that you visit? I know it can’t just be me!
Back to school time is the perfect excuse to upgrade your office supplies and these pens from Bazic Products are totally fun. Each pen has black, red, and blue ink, but is the same size as a regular pen so you can take it with your notebook wherever you go. Be sure to check out all the great supplies from Bazic Products and get ready for their Sampling Event which will happen HERE. [Check the calendar for specific date and time!]
When the kiddos head back to school, it seems like the whole family gets busier. Not only am I shuttling from Pre-K to Sophia’s school, but dance class will start again soon and then soccer practice. It makes our afternoons full and time at home to prepare dinner seem to dwindle.
I’m definitely planning on having a few boxes of Explore Cuisine pasta in the pantry for those busy weeknights! Explore Cuisine products are vegan, organic, and gluten-free and are sure to become part of everyone’s favorite meal. I’ve been drooling over the recipe section of their website, trying to decide which to try first!
If you’re like me, I know you’ll want to get a sample of Explore Cuisine, so you better have fast fingers when it comes to their Sampling Event, which will happen HERE. [Check the calendar for specific date and time!]
Whether you’re the one heading back to school and taking some college courses, or you’re the parent that has to get everyone else headed off to school, there’s one thing that we all seem to need… energy!
Meet the Cube that can be the answer to your energy needs. With 50 mg of caffeine per cube, the Mint Chocolate Zap Cubez gives you the control of how much caffeine you need. The chocolate mint chew is nutrionally fortified with Vitamins B6 and B12 and made with chocolate [yum!] which is a natural antioxidant. It really is delicious too! Be sure to hop over to the Chewz Brand Sampling Event which will be happening HERE. [Check the calendar for specific date and time!]
Perhaps one of the most delicious packages that has ever shown up on my doorstep came with this event and I’m not entirely sure that I can share with my girls. These HoneyBars are amazingly delicious and come in a variety of different combinations and flavors.
Peanut Butter & Jam is a close second favorite to the Quinoa & Cranberry HoneyBar. The HoneyBar has been around for 20 years and is all natural and only held together with, you guessed it, honey! Want to know who else loves these nutritional bars? The HoneyBar Trail Mix Bar went to the International Space Station. Believe me, you are going to want to get ready for their Sampling Event that will happen HERE. [Check the calendar for specific date and time!]
If there was ever a time to be comfortable, it’s in the business of the back to school season. That’s why you’ll definitely find me running the girls in the school lines with my Danskin Now clothing.
Not only are they comfortable, Danskin Now clothing is affordable and available at my local Walmart. My new favorite addition to my wardrobe is the Danskin Now Women’s Active Short Sleeve Crew Neck T-Shirt. It’s machine washable, but also wicks away moisture! Be ready to have SUPER quick fingers for their Sampling Event which will happen HERE. [Check the calendar for specific date and time!]
Now that you’ve seen the amazing brands participating, I know you’re ready to get the Back to School Event started, right?!? Well, you do have to wait just a few more days as we officially kick things off on Monday, August 8th!
