Living Simplistically is Now Simplistic Journey

   I have begun a new chapter in my life and therefore a new blog. I have struggled with whether or not to keep Living Simplistically alive or *gasp* delete this blog and I have chosen to keep Living Simplistically alive. I have worked too hard and too long on this blog to say goodbye. However there will be definite changes occurring. I will be linking to my new blog; Simplistic Journey because I update that blog regularly, secondly I will still post on Living Simplistically when I have written something that is relevant to this blog. Otherwise you can continue reading my work by visiting my new blog.

   Simplistic Journey is a place where all of my interests collide in a neat and orderly fashion. It is actually like 5 blogs in one. I write about health, crafts, recipes, money savers, and of course my life. So from now on if you are wondering why Living Simplistically isn't being updated regularly that's why. But don't worry, I will continue writing on Living Simplistically when the topic is appropriate. 

   Until next time :)

Listerine; The Tingly Clean


   I was recently accepted to be a sampler of Listerine Cool Mint Mouthwash through Crowdtap. I was surprised when I received a large bottle of Listerine for myself and one to share with a friend. At the time I was not completely finished with the mouthwash I had been previously using; so I finished that and began using the Listerine to complete the 21 day challenge. I have to say I am extremely impressed and I will not be going back. My mouth has never felt cleaner!

   I have an obsession with brushing my teeth. I can't stand the "dirty mouth" feeling. On average I brush at least 3-4 times a day. However after switching to Listerine my mouth feels cleaner and stays cleaner longer. I still brush my teeth as much as I always have, but I love the clean feeling that follows rinsing with Listerine. Thank you Crowdtap for including me in the 21 day Listerine clean mouth challenge!

Herbal Essences Crowdtap Sample and Share

As many of you know I am a member of Crowdtap which allows me to be a part of some amazing opportunities. Recently I was accepted to be a part of the Herbal Essences body wash sample and share, and I have sampled so now it is time to share.


I received Hello Hydration Herbal Essences body wash. My first reaction was how awesome the color of blue they chose for this scent was. (Blue is my favorite color) I immediately unscrewed the lid and took a whiff. It smells amazing. So after running 2.5 miles (because I'm doing the weight loss/ exercise thing) I was in dire need of a shower;


I look pretty rough after a run. So I grabbed my sample and some of my other favorite "pamper me" items:


...and hopped in to refresh and relax after my run. Hello Hydration was amazing! It smells so good, lathers just the right amount, and I finished my shower feeling clean and smelling wonderfully. I attempted to take a picture but after 6 tries to take an after shower selfie looking relaxed I gave up. Sorry :(

If you would like to be a member of some amazing sample and shares all you have to do is become a member of Crowdtap, and the best part is that membership is absolutely free! There is no referral program for the site; simply go to crowdtap.com and register. They have "quickhits" which are simple survey questions such as "Do you eat chocolate?" and then you choose "Yes", "No", "Sometimes" things like that. They have sample and share opportunities and other challenges and missions like decorating a roll of toilet paper to see who comes up with the most creative costume for their roll, (that was a Charmin contest), and other fun things. Each time you complete an action you earn points which give you entries into each months prize drawings. It's awesome to win the prizes, but I enjoy the sample an share even more. If you look back through some of my posts you'll see that I've received a free coat and a free swimming suit from Old Navy, toothpaste, mouthwash, body wash, and lots of other awesome things!

Let's Get Healthy!

Okay so this is my third try to lose weight after having kids...the first two tries did not turn out so well...but today is day 36 of my third try and I have lost 18 pounds! I am feeling amazing and motivated. So I am considering starting a new blog to cover my techniques and meal plans...I need some feedback though as to whether anyone would really be interested in reading yet another motivational weight loss blog. So...would you?
