SUMOgrip Lace Locks Review and GIVEAWAY

Do your shoelaces ever get untied mid run? Do you hate double knotting your shoes or hate it when your laces aren’t long enough to double knot? Worry no more. SUMOgrips solve shoelace problems and are pretty cool! I was able to try these lace locks free of charge in exchange for a review. My opinions are my own. /home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/77e/68168024/files/2015/01/img_1777.jpg

The SUMOgrip Lace Locks are so easy to use. All you have to do is tie your laces however you normally do and then slide the SUMOgrip under the knot. Then you secure the ends together until you hear the click and you’re set. /home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/77e/68168024/files/2015/01/img_1776.jpg

I’ve tried these on a couple of runs on the treadmill and outside. My laces stayed secure and did not come undone. I can’t even feel that they’re there. Pretty Cool!! I usually tie my laces using a double knot method. I tried the SUMOgrips without double knotting and they worked great! I like the idea of not having to double knot my laces especially with short laces. It’s awesome knowing that they are secure with the SUMOgrips. There’s no need to worry about my laces. Here’s a pic of what the SUMOgrips looks like on my shoelaces.

I even put them on my kiddo’s shoes. I think these are perfect for him too haha. His laces seem to get undone more than mine. I tried them on his shoes when we were out and about for the day, and sure enough, his laces stayed secure. The only negative thing I see about them is that they can be hard to unsnap. It just takes a little more time to unsnap and untie the shoes. You can always just slip your feet out of your shoes without taking them off :P. But taking your shoes off doesn’t really matter in the grand scheme of things. It’s all about the laces not getting untied and the SUMOgrips work.

Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts Review and Giveaway

Note: I was given a 2 oz bag of Hemp Hearts through a Sweat Pink campaign in exchange for reviewing them. No other compensation was received, and all opinions are my own.

I like trying new food, especially if it’s healthy, so I was excited when Sweat Pink offered the opportunity to try Manitoba Harvest’s Hemp Hearts. I had seen them at Costco before but wasn’t sure if I would use the big bag that Costco sells, especially since I had not tried them.

Here’s a pic of the front and back of the sample I received.

Here’s the back of the package the sample came in, which has great info:

IMG_8837.JPGHemp Hearts are packed with nutrition. Each 30g Serving has 10g of plant based protein and 10g of Omega 3 & 6. They have less carbs and more protein and omegas than the same serving of chia or flax. Also, they are raw, vegan-friendly and Non-GMO.

The first time I tried them, I sprinkled them on my Greek yogurt. It tasted pretty good! Hemp Hearts taste nutty and added a great flavor to my yogurt!

IMG_8891.JPGBesides adding Hemp Hearts to my yogurt, I’ve also added them to my Shakeology  shakes which I drink each day. I think Hemp Hearts are a great addition to all different kinds of food to make them healthier. You can add them to salad, cereal & yogurt, and smoothies. They taste fine right from the bag too! I know I’ll be buying more once my sample runs out.

You can check out Manitoba Harvest’s Hemp Hearts on their website. If you would like to try them, Sweat Pink and Manitoba Harvest are offering 20% off everything at ManitobaHarvest.com with code HHSweatPink14, which expires November 30, 2014.
