LaCroix Month Supply Giveaway!


And I don’t know about where you live, but it’s certainly feeling like Summertime ever since Memorial Day weekend has come and gone down here in the Sunshine State!

That’s why, I’m teaming up with my friends at LaCroix to giveaway a MONTH SUPPLY of LaCroix Sparkling Water in the flavor(s) of your choosing! Last week, we kicked off the giveaway on Instagram and there is still time to enter there (@bannc) and/or below for more chances through the weekend.




I did not think I was alone in my self-proclaimed addiction to LaCroix – and I love hearing from y’all on Snapchat (bannc), Instagram and Twitter, about what your favorite flavors are. I am loving the Mango right now, Lemon for a basic one, Lime by the pool and also the LaCroix Curate Melon Pomelo in the tall skinny cans, but let’s be honest, my fridge is normally stocked with a variety of flavors and I’ll never say no to one more during my day.

Skinnygirl Protein Shakes and Bars

If you’ve been following me along on social media lately, you might of noticed a few new products in my daily routine – Skinnygirl protein shakes and the newly reformulated protein snack bars!


The shakes come in two flavors – rich brownie chocolate and vanilla bean sundae. Both flavors are delicious to drink, only 80 calories, no sugar, low in fat and they are gluten free (super important for me!). Each bottle also provides 12 grams of protein. I’m partial to the vanilla bean one but that is also coming from the girl who prefers vanilla ice cream and cake to chocolate so there is no surprise there.

Besides tasting delicious, I have found that these are perfect pre and post workout for me. Like a lot of women, I often have a hard time getting enough protein from my daily diet alone. The average woman needs about 45 grams a day and these shakes are the perfect supplement in addition to healthy eating.

When keeping an active lifestyle and wanting to stay fit and strong – this is extremely important as well. Protein helps with muscle recovery, growth and prevents soreness. The fact that these shakes taste like dessert also makes it easy to grab one and drink on the way to a barre or spin class or after for me.

I’ve also been snacking more on Skinnygirl Protein Tasty Nutrition Bars – these are the same SG bars you might have already grown to love (like myself) but they have been reformulated to pack in more protein with less calories. Each bar has 150 calories and 10 grams of protein – they are also gluten free and have no artificial flavors or sweeteners. From Dark Chocolate Almond (with coconut), Chocolate Peanut Butter (with sea salt), Lemon Swirl and Dark Chocolate Pretzel – you really cannot go wrong.

I normally keep one or two of these bars in my bag throughout the day – sometimes I will end up eating one for breakfast or also on the way to a workout class or just an afternoon snack. Incorporating one in the morning helps to keep you full throughout the day (one other benefit of protein). Because I am gluten free – I like to always have one on hand in case I am out and there is not a GF friendly option I can eat.

Some other benefits of a healthy protein diet are that it helps to boost metabolism and maintain a healthy weight. I will notice that if I’m not getting enough daily, my muscles will not look as toned and I don’t feel as energetic either.

As you can see, I am absolutely obsessed with these new products and they have just launched at Walmart nationwide and are coming to other retailers soon. So obsessed that I have decided to host a giveaway for my readers so that you can try them both for yourself!

Skinnygirl Savvy Snackers Giveaway!

It’s no secret here on H&T that I love Skinnygirl snacks!

I’ve posted about them before as they are my go-to bars for road trips and before (and after) barre classes too. I also love the banana oatmeal dark chocolate one for breakfast – or at any time of the day for that matter.

However, what’s even better is that Skinnygirl Tasty Nutrition Bars just came out with new flavors. There’s now Lemon Swirl, Dark Chocolate Almond with Coconut and my personal new favorite – Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein (yum!).

And the best part? They’re gluten free for yours truly and don’t taste like it! They actually taste GOOD (which is hard to find in the GF world, trust me). They’re high in protein and fiber + low in calories. The absolute perfect snack on the go for those of us running around all day.

You can order them at or find them at your local Target too. H&T readers also receive 10% off all online orders with promo code HOSTING1.

If you haven’t tried them yourself, be sure to enter below for a chance to win a package with all 3 new flavors! Good Luck!

12 Days of Lisi Lerch Giveaway + Holiday Look

I promised you one more giveaway before Christmas and it’s finally here!

I am thrilled to be teaming up with Lisi Lerch for their 12 Days of Lisi Lerch celebration as part of their series with several other of my favorite blogger friends. We have each styled pieces from their collection and one lucky winner will also receive a pair of these button earring beauties!

These earrings are perfect for holiday looks like the one I styled below. I’m a big fan of midi skirts again this season, pom poms, girly red pumps and of course, oversized (dare I say “blanket”) plaid scarves. I must also admit, I’ve worn the earrings numerous times this season already a few different ways. They would also be darling to dress up jeans and a white-tee. Don’t you think?
