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!

Turns out, you really can forgive almost anything.  A few days ago Dogzilla conspired with Horse Dog, Doberman Destroyer, to dig underneath the chicken coop.  She was the physical labor, Dogzilla was the chicken killer.  He killed my Marans hen and badly hurt my speckled Sussex hen as well.  I was so angry that if someone had offered me a wooden nickel for both dogs I would have taken it without a second thought.  I’ve been mad, at Dogzilla in particular, for several days now.  And he knows it.  Tonight he climbed up on the couch next to me, all 150+ lbs of him and laid his head on my knee, looking at me with the saddest puppy dog eyes I’ve ever seen.  So of course I forgave him.  I love him even if he’s a big chicken-eating duffus.  But I did let him know that next time he touches a chicken we will have big problems.  Big.  Dumb dog.

The FedEx truck brought something exciting today–my Glade ‘Design the Air’ House Party pack!  If you’re not familiar with House Party you really need to go and take a look at their website.  This is the first House Party I’ve been selected for in a few years so I’m pretty excited.  Here’s a little sneak peek of the goodies, more on party day in a few weeks.

In what may be the oddest bit of news I’ve seen about this case lately, a protester swiped a bag of garbage from the Anthony home Tuesday morning.  She took the garbage to her own home and went through it to look for any evidence or clues that may be useful in locating Caylee.  Since it was left on the curb, which is public property, it was perfectly legal for ‘Lorraine’ (as she wishes to be identified) to take the garbage.  I’m truly not sure what to think about this.  New low in this case?  Gutsy move?  Just gross?  She didn’t find anything worthwhile, by the way.

More NY Fashion Week Spring 2009 backstage and runway photos from GHD today, this time from the Monique Lhuillier and Proenza Schouler shows.  All the styles were accomplished with their MKIV styler and liquid products, of course.  I have to say that the hair at PS doesn’t do much for me, but I love the red lips.  The hair look at ML is much more my style, not that anyone gives a damn.  Enjoy!

I received these photos from GHD today showing the hair looks they created at Bryant Park for Alexandre Herchcovitch and Miss Sixty.  The looks were created using the GHD MKIV styler and various GHD styling products.  Pretty hair, pretty girls…makes me wish I didn’t have two thumbs when it comes to styling my own hair.  I particularly dig the model who’s rocking the no-pants look (or are there some very micro-mini booty shorts?  Can’t quite tell) with the floral blouse and the seriously smoked out eyes at Miss Sixty.  As Christian Siriano, my favorite Project Runway alum ever, would say “that’s fierce.”
