Save the Planet with Dad’s Pants + Haggar Giveaway

Growing up, I lived with my grandfather. He was an amazing man, and I have more fond memories of him than I can begin to count. One of my favorites is of when I would sit on the bathroom counter and watch him get ready for his day. He’d sing Frank Sinatra or Tony Bennett to me while splashing his face with Aqua Velva and combing some sort of oily substance through his hair.  His uniform for this daily routine was an undershirt (do men still wear those?) and a pair of Haggar pants.  But my grandpa called them slacks.

Haggar Pants

He had a closet full of Haggar “slacks”, and I can’t remember him wearing anything else (except maybe a bathing suit in the summer). He liked to look nice at all times, but he also insisted on being comfortable. This is what Haggar has been doing best since 1926, so it’s no surprise it was his favorite brand. That was way back in the 80s, and in my opinion, Haggar has only gotten better since then. They’re still making stylish, quality apparel that’s comfortable to wear, but now they are also one of the first men’s pant brands to offer eco-friendly and sustainable options.

REPREVE Fibers

Yes, my friends.  Earth-friendly pants are a thing, and I’d say it’s about time.  Haggar’s E-CLO Stria Dress Pant and their Life Khaki Sustainable Chino are both made with REPREVE, a fiber made of recycled materials.  Six water bottles are used in the production of each pant, enabling Haggar to save more than 125 million water bottles from entering landfills.  It sounds like magic, but it’s really quite simple.  Plastic bottles labeled with #1 on the bottom are made of a polyester called PET.  These PET bottles are ground into flakes and transformed into REPREVE threads that are woven into fabric.

That’s a pretty special pair of pants, and the bonus is that you’re not sacrificing style or comfort for sustainability.  Whether you wear the dressier E-CLO Strias or the more casual Life Khaki Chinos, you’re going to look good.

 

You’ll feel good too.  The REPREVE fabric stretches for comfort and wicks away moisture to keep you cool.

Haggar Expandable Waistband

The E-CLO pants even have a hidden expandable waistband that stretches up to 3 inches and they’re no-iron.  Both pairs are machine-washable, and since I’m in charge of laundry, that’s my favorite feature.

My husband is very happy with the E-CLO Stria pants that Haggar sent us to try.  Comfort is a priority for him, and these fit the bill.  They’re super soft, and don’t tell him I told you, but he appreciates that hidden waistband.

What’s better than looking good and feeling good in your clothes?  Looking and feeling good in them and about them.  That’s what you get with Haggar, and with prices of $65 and $70 that are frequently discounted to just between $30 and $35, you can’t beat the value.  You can get both pants at Haggar.com and Amazon.com as well as major retailers like Kohl’s, JCPenney, and Macy’s.

The value is about to get even better.  My readers can get $10 Off When You Spend $60 or More with Code 10AFF17 or $15 Off $100 or More + Free Shipping with Code 15AFF17.  These aren’t specifically for Father’s Day, but it’s the perfect time to take advantage of these deals.

Haggar is also giving Game On Mom readers a chance to win a pair of E-CLO Stria Dress Pants!  Enter via the Giveaway Tools form below.  Giveaway is open to US residents who are 18 and older.  Ends 6/19/17.  Good luck!

Double Beauty Giveaway Worth $900!

Today, we have a HUGE beauty giveaway for you with an ARV of $900! One lucky reader will win two amazing products. Read all about them, and then enter to win via the Giveaway Tools form at the end of the post.

Theragrow

For 40% of women who suffer with hair loss and the self-consciousness it leads to, finally there is an FDA-cleared, at-home product designed strictly for women. Theragrow™ is a helmet worn at home that harnesses the power of laser light to minimize hair loss and promote hair growth.

Theragrow Helmet for Hair Loss

It delivers the same precise wavelength and dosage of energy proven to rejuvenate hair follicles and effectively regrow hair. Only lasers with a wavelength between 670 and 686 nanometers can penetrate deep enough to reach the base of the hair follicles and stimulate growth–a depth of 3 to 5 millimeters. No other light source, including devices using LED light, can achieve this.

Theragrow Complete Set

By treating the base of hair follicles, Theragrow’s proprietary cold laser technology ensures the mitochondria, the energy generator of hair cells, is reactivated. The mitochondria then produce cell energy that is absorbed by hair follicles, stimulating new hair growth.

Price: $495.00

Tresor Rare Ultimate Pearl Facial Peel

A definitive facial peeling gel which assists brightening, cleansing, detoxifying, and conditioning the skin, generating a softer, fresher, and brighter-looking complexion. This mild formula includes a unique combination of ingredients to methodically and comfortably eliminate dead skin cells, surplus oil, and residues, thereby leaving the skin feeling smooth and soft, resulting in a new healthy glow.

Tresor Rare Ultimate Pearl Facial Peel

Application: Use this facial peel up to twice weekly in the evening. Apply a small amount of the peeling gel onto dry skin. Using the tips of your fingers, rub the gel into the face in small circular movements until you see a water-like basis. At that point, leave the mask on your face for 2-5 minutes. Remove by gently rubbing off, in the same circular motion (a tad more aggressively), getting the peeling effect. Keep rubbing until the mask has completely flaked off. Keep away from rubbing onto the eye contour area. Rinse off any remaining residue using lukewarm water or a toner.

Price: $399.00

Giveaway is open to US residents who are 18 and older. Come back daily for more entries. Good luck!

Safely Keep Bad Bugs at Bay this Summer + Giveaway

I haven’t even started writing yet, and I’m already starting to itch.  Why?  Because we’re about to talk about lice and other nasty critters.

Imagine your child coming home one day complaining of an itchy head.  You’ll probably dismiss it at first because kids are always complaining about something and a little itching doesn’t seem like such a big deal in the scheme of things.  But when you see that he/she is really going to town with the scratching, you realize you should take a closer look.  And then…POW!  Lice.  You immediately consider shaving your child’s head, but instead end up investing many hours (spread across many days) fixing the problem.

Itchy Scalp

This is something I’m anxious about every day of the school year, but if you send your kids away to camp for the summer, you have even greater reason to worry.  Not only is there the threat of lice, but you also have to deal with mosquitoes and maybe even bed bugs.  Itching, bites, welts, more itching.  It’s all just…ICK.  Dealing with the aftereffects of infestations is not my thing.  I prefer to prevent them in the first place.

Fairy Tales is my go-to brand in these situations.  You’ve heard me talk about them before because they make great hair products for kids that don’t have all the things I try to avoid, like harsh chemicals, pesticides, toxins, parabens, and sulfates.  A lack of dairy, gluten, and nuts in their products also makes them ideal for people with allergies.  So, we have been fans of Fairy Tales for years now, and I’m happy to tell you that their line includes several products specifically designed to keep pests away.

Rosemary Repel Shampoo & Conditioner

Let’s start with their Rosemary Repel Daily Shampoo and Rosemary Repel Conditioner.  These are as gentle as their other shampoos and conditioners, but a proprietary blend of organic rosemary, citronella, tea tree, and geranium oils help prevent lice.  Use this combo every day, and you’ll fend off those nasty buggers and look good at the same time.

Bug Bandit Bug Repellent

A bite or a sting can quickly turn a fun summer day into a , so we never go out with bug spray.  Unfortunately, a lot of bug sprays are more frightening than the bugs they’re protecting you from.  A few years ago, we switched to the Fairy Tales Bug Bandit Deet-Free Bug Spray, and now we get the same results without the nasty chemicals.  A quick spray before going outside keeps the fleas, mosquitoes, ticks, and biting flies at bay.

Sleep-Tite Bed Bug Eliminator

I want absolutely nothing to do with ticks or lice, but what really scares me is the prospect of my kids bringing home bed bugs.  Fairy Tales has yet another natural solution with their Sleep-Tite Bed Bug Spray.  Use this on beds and linens, and the natural minerals and other non-toxic ingredients will kill bed bugs and their eggs instantly.

Whether you’re sending your kids off to sleepaway camp, day camp, or you’re taking a vacation, you’ll want to put these Fairy Tales summer essentials on your packing list.  Prevention is always better than a cure, don’t you think?  To learn more about Fairy Tales and shop their online store, visit FairyTalesHairCare.com; you can also get most of their products on Amazon.

Fairy Tales is generously offering our readers a chance to win a Fairy Tales Prize Pack, which includes their Rosemary Repel Daily Shampoo, Rosemary Repel Conditioner, Bug Bandit Bug Spray, and Sleep-Tite Bed Bug Eliminator.  Giveaway is open to US residents who are 18 and older.  Ends 6/6/17.  Good luck!

This Inside-Out Umbrella Will Change Your Life + Giveaway

This post is all about an umbrella.  I was not originally planning on dedicating an entire post to one umbrella, but I’m so in love with this thing that I just can’t help myself.  Like a lot of you, I’m a very busy, working mother who is often literally juggling multiple things.  Okay, maybe it’s more like dropping than juggling because I’m just not talented in that way, but the point is that I always seem to have more than a few things in my hands–and even more things on my mind, which really doesn’t help the situation.

Let me tell you what a sad, soggy sight I’ve been at school pickup on any rainy day in the past two years.  I’ve been do dissatisfied with my last few umbrellas that I didn’t even bother replacing the last one.  Instead, I’ve been relying on my light rainjacket and it’s hood to keep me dry.  This sort of works.  Unless it rains more than a drizzle. Or there’s any amount of wind.  Yeah, it’s not the best solution.  This inverted umbrella, however, works like a charm and is full of convenient features. Let me tell you how it fits perfectly into my crazy life.

Inverted Umbrella - Starry Night Design

It’s an “inverted umbrella” because it has a rather strange inside out kind of design.  This means that when you come in out of the rain and you close the umbrella, the wet outside stays on the inside, so there’s no sloppy, wet mess to worry about.  When you’re home, you can air it out and let it dry as you like, but I know you don’t like going into a restaurant or a friend’s house and leaving a puddle behind.  I know I don’t like it anyway, and I especially hate getting the floor or seat of my car wet, so this reverse design is just what I need.

Inverted Umbrella C-Shaped Handle

Something else I’ve never seen on another umbrella is the c-shaped handle.  You can hook the handle onto your wrist, rest the rod on your shoulder, and you still have your hand free to hold other, more interesting things, like a phone, a baby, or a burrito.  Whatever floats your boat.

As you might expect, the umbrella comes with a cover.  In my household, umbrella covers last maybe two uses before they are lost forever.  I’m assuming they end up wherever the lost socks go.  This cover, however, is one I’m not letting go of.  There’s a strap attached to it, allowing you to use the cover as a sling that makes it easy to carry the umbrella around when you aren’t actually using it.  One of the things that’s prevented me from investing in a not-compact umbrella is that I simply didn’t feel like carrying a giant one around.  Problem solved.

Inverted Umbrella Sling Strap

I’ve saved my favorite feature for last.  Technically, it’s part of the first feature, but it’s so good that it gets its own paragraph.  When you get in and out of your car during the rain, you get wet, right?  Even when you have an umbrella, some amount of rain makes it way in, and the opening and closing of an umbrella generally results in some spray action.  This goes for getting in and out of any door, I just personally seem to have the most trouble with cars.  It’s been a pet peeve of mine for years.   Well, the inverted design of this umbrella means that you can now get in and out of your car without any of that nonsense.  Finally, you can go out in the rain and actually stay dry.  Your hair will be forever grateful to you.

The particular brand of inverted umbrella that I have comes in a few different colors/patterns.  You can choose from all black, black with rose red, or black with a starry night pattern, which is the one I received.  All are available from Amazon for very reasonable prices and with Prime shipping.  Whichever color you choose, you’re going to love your new umbrella.  You might even hope for some rain just so you can use it.
