Today, we marveled at how light it still was outside at 8:30. We also contemplated ice cream for dinner. And today, we had our first dip in the pool. Isn’t that the best? My kids do have camp this summer, but it’s sort of staggered and at least one of the weeks is a virtual comics camp. We otherwise like to live outside all summer long. It’s the New England way, after all! Gardening and playing and swimming and hiking and watching fireflies (or do you call them lightning bugs where you live?) when the sun goes down. Summer is just delicious. When I was little, I thought it was so long, but it must have seemed short to my parents. Especially when you plan camp and travel and realize there are limited weeks if you plan too much. So we’re not planning too much this summer. Lots of outdoor adventures, spontaneous or otherwise, are in the cards.
Outdoor Adventure Essentials For Summer Adventure:
Liquid Bandages from New Skin:
These come in handy! We’ve used New Skin® Liquid Bandage for years now, because it protects us from infection due to minor cuts, scrapes, calluses, blisters, and dry cracked skin. This is all-in-one protection that prevents infection, seals out water, dirt, and germs, and also helps heal cuts. We love that it works where bandages cannot, and kills 99.9% of germs. It provides a flexible seal to work even in the hardest to cover places, and it’s waterproof, so no falling off!
There are two new formulations – New Skin Sensitive & New Skin Botanicals. Skin Sensitive is the first and only hypoallergenic liquid bandage. Sensitive skin increases with aging, medications, and diabetes. And traditional bandages cause irritation, discomfort and redness. This product has a pain free application and removal. New Skin Botanicals is the first and only liquid bandage enriched with natural ingredients. They’re enriched with aloe and chamomile for better healing. They are also drug free, sting free, and alcohol free. Liquid Skin Bandages are 100% waterproof, flexible, invisible, and work for any skin tone. They’re a must for outdoor adventure!
As many of us know, a period brings more than cramps – before, during, and even after. You can experience bloating, moodiness, headaches, backaches, and of course, cramps. Pamprin is more than a pain reliever – it’s a period reliever. It’s made for periods, unlike other pain relievers, and is formulated to relieve the discomfort of cramps, headaches and backaches. There are also added ingredients to ease bloating and fatigue. This summer, beat the bloat with the addition of a simple diuretic to Pamprin’s formula. This works to relieve uncomfortable belly bloat. Then, your body can get back to feeling like itself again – which is key when the sun is out and there is the pool and other outdoor activities calling your name! Outdoor adventure is now in my future!
As we know, to “grin and bear it” is not a feasible strategy for your period. So, Pamprin comes to the rescue with a formula that quiets the ill and brings out your chill. Period relief and bloat relief is in your future! Find out more about Pamprin here.
Shampoo from Ultra Swim:
This shampoo smells so good! It is the shampoo made for swimmers, and has a been a favorite of both competitive and recreational swimmers for many years due to it being the absolute best chlorine removal shampoo on the market. Also, moms love it! As we all know, chlorine build up occurs quickly, creating dry, brittle and unmanageable hair. Ultra Swim is the best kept secret!
It removes chlorine and other chemical buildup better than ordinary shampoos, and has a moisturizing formula that is safe to use after every swim. And it keeps hair free of odors caused by chlorine, and prevents “swimmer’s green” toned hair. We love having this around for swimmer’s hair, and safe, fast, good-smelling chlorine removal!

Energy Stix from 4C:
Oh, this is fun!! We love 4C, which makes Powdered Beverages, like Iced Tea, Drink Mixes, and Energy Stix. They give you more energy for less money, and are roughly half of the cost of RedBull for the same ingredients. They are sugar free so you get no sugar crash, and they’re low calorie and lightly carbonated.
You just add water and mix to these delicious flavors: Berry, Orange, and Citrus. They’re perfect for on-the-go energy. Find out more about them here.
