Dry Idea - A Great Idea!

It's hot!  Really, really hot! 111 degrees hot!  So when I was offered the opportunity to test a new antiperspirant I jumped at the chance!  This heat will put it through the ultimate test!

Let me tell you about Dry Idea. 

  • Unscented and Powder Fresh with Minerals (2.6 oz.)

  • Dry Idea Hypoallergenic and Extra Effective (48 hour odor and 24 hour wetness protection)

  • The new Dry Idea invisible solids provide Clinical Level Wetness Protection without additional ‘clinical’ packaging or cost. It is also formulated with Vitamin E for silky smooth glide. The Unscented is truly fragrance free and great for sensitive skin, while Powder Fresh has Moisture-Absorbing Minerals that offer protection and lets skin breathe.

    Dry Idea is availabe in Clear Gel, Invisible Solid, or Roll-On.  I was given the Roll-On to test.  I'm not a big fan of Roll-On, I think it's sticky.  Well, Dry Idea is completely different.  It went on smooth and then dried very smooth.  It almost felt like silk.  I was very impressed with the feel! 

    Now to put it to the outside test! I actually chopped some tumbleweeds (in this heat).  Dry Idea did a great job!  It worked and kept on working throughout the day.  I did not "offend" all day!

    I'm pretty impressed with this product!

    If that's not enough, the Dry Idea folks are running a great sweepstakes!  You know I love a great sweepstakes!  There are $1000 in prizes!  A $500 Grand Prize and ten $50 2nd place prizes!  You can enter here! Hurry though, contest ends July 13th!

    My husband and I had the opportunity to see the Cirque Du Soleil show, Kooza.  I was truly speechless through most of the show, and that's something for me!

    When we arrived we were excited to see a big white tent set up right in the parking lot of the stadium.  It was so fun to see that, and we were excited to see what was inside!  We were a little worried though, because we live in Arizona and it is June, and hot... so very hot.  We were very relieved to feel how cool and comfortable it was inside!  The minute we stepped inside we felt like we were in another world.

    We were very close to the stage (there is not a bad seat in the house!).  While waiting for the show to start my director's mind was checking out the rigging and the set and staging.  I was so impressed with all of it!

    Then the show started and I forgot all about the rigging, the staging, and the set.  I was instantly swept away in the story, and the acts.  I felt like a little girl all over again as I watched the acts.  Every one of them was amazing!  I particularly loved the high wire act.  I even gasped out loud several times during their act and also the Wheel of Death! 

    Thank goodness for intermission so I could catch my breath and calm my quickly beating heart.  Oh, and did I mention they had cupcakes?  Beautiful, delicious cupcakes!

    We enjoyed the whole evening and are still talking about it with anyone who will listen!  If you get a chance, go see Cirque Du Soleil Kooza! 

    Where Are Mike and Ike?

    I love a good contest!  I love candy!  So when you combine the two, I'm all over that!

    Let me tell you about a fun contest going on, that you can enter!  It's called "Where Are Mike and Ike?" 

    If you've eaten some delicious Mike and Ike candy lately (if not, get busy!  They're delicious!) you'll notice that either Mike or Ike's name is crossed out.  That because they've split to follow their true passions.  Mike is a musician and is rumored to be producing a CD; Ike's an artist and lover of art.

    Hence, the contest!  You can enter by visiting the  Mike and Ike Tumblr page.

    When you visit the Mike and Ike facebook page you can get a clue that will help you answer a question. Each Tuesday and Friday, a new question will appear on the contest page.

    "Participants can earn points by answering the questions correctly, sending tweets about the contest, liking the MIKE AND IKE® Facebook page and emailing up to five (5) friends per day requesting that they enter the contest (points are awarded only after the friend participates).

    After July 11th, the one (1) participant with the highest number of points will receive an Apple iPod Touch. Four (4) second prize winners will each receive an Apple iPod Shuffle. Fifteen (15) third prize winners will each receive a box of twenty four (24) 1.8 oz bags of MIKE AND IKE® Original Fruits™ and a MIKE AND IKE® t-shirt.

    In addition, each week there will be a random drawing that will award any of the participants a MIKE AND IKE® t-shirt and a box of twenty four (24) 1.8 oz bags of MIKE AND IKE® Original Fruits™"

    Sounds like fun, doesn't it!  So pop on over to

    Good Luck!
