Früsh is an innovative new line of yogurt and fruit superdrinks made with real fruit and creamy yogurt. Früsh is available in 8.4oz and 32oz sizes of four fruit-filled flavors: Blueberry, Strawberry, Peach, and Strawberry Banana. Each contains 9 grams of protein, Howaru Bifido probiotics to boost immunity and aid digestion, and TruCal and calcium from milk sources which provide 50% of the recommended daily calcium requirement.  Früsh is sold at Bi-Lo, Ingles, and Lowes Foods.  That all sounds very well you might say, but do they taste good? That’s the real test, isn’t it? Well let me tell you, they’re awesome.

Beauty Sleeping recently had the pleasure of holding a taste test for this yummy new product and Früsh sent an amazingly generous package which included 6 of each flavor, product coupons, and ‘like’ buttons for the taste testers. I put them to the test with the world’s most discriminating of epicures…children! And their parents too, of course. The consensus was that Früsh gets a giant thumbs-up. Everyone loved them, and *several* of the kids wanted a second one immediately after they finished the first!

The Blueberry variety was the favorite with the under-four-foot crowd, while most of the adults enjoyed Strawberry or Peach. Of course, that could be because the kids made off with all the Blueberry first. In fact, there’s a rumor that the Beauty Sleeping children actually drank ALL of the Blueberry Früsh before the tasting party, necessitating replacements to be purchased.  That’s just a rumor of course.  Strawberry Banana was a strong contender as well but a lot of people mentioned that they would have preferred a Raspberry option instead.

I would like to thank Früsh for this thoroughly enjoyable opportunity. Please visit Früsh at gofrush.com or find them on Facebook at facebook.com/gofrush to Shake It Up!

If you have little ones with allergies then you’re probably already familiar with Children’s Claritin. It’s a lifesaver for many of us and an indispensable part of the allergy season ‘survival kit’ that all allergy moms keep on hand. Children’s Claritin has long been part of my own ‘survival kit’ and I’m proud to say that BeautySleeping is now part of the Children’s Claritin Mom Crew. Mom Select and Children’s Claritin have put together this initiative to help moms and kids with tips and resources to get through allergy season. There’s a printable coupon for Children’s Claritin available here

I’m so pleased to announce that Beauty Sleeping has been chosen to take part in this special opportunity, Coppertone Water MOMS. We all know how important sun protection for everyone, but especially our little ones, is during the summer. I’m committed to making sure my babies are protected EVERY time they’re exposed to the sun and I hope you are too! I received an absolutely fantastic welcome kit from Mom Select and Coppertone which included a canvas tote bag, samples of Coppertone products, a water bottle, and an inflatable beach ball. I’ve already handed out almost all of the sample tubes of sunscreen. Thank you Mom Select and Coppertone!

Congratulations to Karlasugar!!  She’s the winner of the first ‘Shop My Stash’ makeup giveaway!  The lucky lady chose the surprise goodie bag as her prize so I can’t share with you exactly what she will be receiving.  I will say that it’s totally fabulous!  It looks so pretty that I’m going to have a hard time letting go of it, to be honest.  I hope Karla will come and share what she’s won after she receives her package.  Congratulations again, Karla! 

By the way, if you’re curious about how the contest winner was selected I used http://www.random.org/lists/  to select a winner.  I entered numbers 1 through 79 (the number of entrants, each corresponding to the order in which they replied to the contest post) into the list field and let it do its thing.  The randomizer returned with number 2 in first place, and since Karla replied to the contest post second she is the lucky winner!  If you didn’t win this time don’t fret–the ‘Shop My Stash’ giveaways will be a regular feature here on Beauty Sleeping so there will be plenty of chances to win.  Hope to see you next time! 

Here is the list that randomizer.org selected, in case you wonder how close you were to winning:
