Tea Me Please


Tea Me Please

With tea from Zhena’s that is.

Zhena’s Gypsy Tea is a tea created in small batches to ensure freshness with every single sip.
If you are a tea drinker, you can appreciate a good cup of tea and understand that there is such a thing as a bad cup of tea.  I am not talking about a tea flavor you don’t like, but a tea that is either old, tastes moldy or stale.  I have tried many teas like that.

(Disclosure: Zhena’s Gypsy Tea send Living Smart Girl product to facilitate a review. 
All opinions about the product are 100% honest and that of Living Smart Girl’s)

Zhena’s sent me a nice package of teas that I picked out.  I got Fire Light Chai, Caramel Chai Red, X Slim Me Raspberry Mint, Organic Peppermint Loose Leaf, English Breakfast and a neat TeaZe Over the Cup Filter.

ZhenasTea3 ZhenasTea2

If you are a tea lover, and especially like loose leaf tea then you for sure need to check out the TeaZe Over the Cup Filter.  This is the neatest thing!  Add your tea, pour in hot water and let steep.  When it is done, place it over a cup and watch your cup fill with tea (minus the leaves).  So cool!!  And, It is pretty to watch as the tea steeps.

I am a huge peppermint tea lover and drink at least one cup a day.  With all my IBS issues, peppermint tea helps to settle things.  But, I was shocked when I got this bag.  OH MY.. I didn’t even think about it but 1# of tea is ALOT of tea!

The English Breakfast tea is so good.  And, I got it in this cute jar with a scoop.   Perfect for my morning cup of tea.
The 2 Chai Tea’s smell great, but I haven’t had a chance to try them yet.  Chai is one of those things I have to be in the mood for.  But, my sister tried the Caramel Chai Red when she was here last week and said it had a perfect mix of spices and the caramel wasn’t over powering, but just perfect.   The X Slim Me tea was a bit to much fruity for me.  I am not into fruity tea’s and was hoping the mint would take over on this, but it didn’t.  But, My sister loves it as she is huge into fruity teas.


Zhena’s Extra Strength Slim Me™ is an excellent addition to any responsible diet or exercise program. Slim Me tea is great to lose those extra 10# in 10 Days for $10.   The tea is packed with 10 Wonder ingredients to aid in weight loss.

Would you like to give the Slim Me Tea a try?  You can either buy it here.
Or, you can enter below and try to win, and if you don’t win then buy it.


Winner will receive 4 tins of tea, one of each flavor. $40 Value

Giveaway Ends March 8th at Midnight (CST).   Enter below.

What Christmas Gift did you Toss Out ?

Disclaimer ~ This is a sponsored campaign with Mums The Word Network and PickURGift.
All opinions and views are 100% Living Smart Girl’s.


It is no secret that the world is full of people who give gifts they think will be a hit, and in fact they are a total bomb!!  Why does this happen?  Well because people don’t always think of the person they are buying the gift for, but rather when they are shopping they are thinking about how they would want a particular item and for some reason they then think the recipient will also like it.  Total Fail!!  When buying gifts it isn’t always easy to know what the recipient would like.   That is why PickURGift is so awesome!

Oh how I wish I had known about PickURGift before the 2013 gift giving season.   Generally my gifts are things I love, but this year someone just missed the mark.   Seems that no matter how many times I talk about clearing out my home, getting rid of nick knacks, down sizing, etc.,  it just didn’t sink in with someone.   Not mentioning names, lets just say she just didn’t listen ;-)   She knows how much I am into fitness stuff, office supplies, eating out, bath and body goodies, … that kind of stuff.   Nope, instead I got more dust collecting, no room for, little nick knacks!   So, they are still in a box downstairs because I have no room for them and don’t want them.   Not that they are ugly, they are cute and do fit my decor, but I don’t have room for them or want any more stuff like that.  So, guess I have to figure out what to do with them, as I know she will be lo0king to see where they are when she visits!   LOL!

PickURGift’s reverse wishlist would have been great for her to use, to shop for me.  She would have seen what I like, and what I am hoping someone will get for me.  Well, maybe next year.   I will keep building my wish list and hopefully those who do buy for me will check it out.  I of course will share my link to my wish list with them.  (duh, right).   So, next time maybe I won’t have to beat my head on the wall trying to figure out what to do with the unwanted gifts.  However, I do appreciate that someone wanted to buy me anything, as I don’t expect gifts.  But, if there is going to be gifts, I would much rather prefer something I can use, than something I can’t.    Check out some items I like.


Using the PickURGift Reverse wishlist is great because you can add all kinds of goodies to your wishlist, and then when you share your link with family and friends they can order you up the perfect gift for any gift giving time of year.

Did you not get what you wanted this year?   Well enter the giveaway below and you could win a $200 Amazon Gift Card to buy yourself exactly what you want.    Good Luck!

Let Us Fill Your Christmas Stocking #StockingStuffer #Giveaway


I know that most of my readers are either a wife, mom, grandma, sister, friend, or even some single ladies out there.  For most of you, I am sure you take the time to make sure everyone get’s a little something in their Christmas stocking from Santa, right ?  Well, who fills your stocking?  Do you get to wake up Christmas morning to your stocking over flowing with goodies ?   I know that it might seem silly, but there is something fun about getting gifts from “Santa” on Christmas day… right ?

Well, I want one lucky reader of mine to get a box full of goodies, from some awesome companies that I hand picked for you.  These companies have donated goodies, just for Living Smart Girl to give away.  Check out all the goodies you will get in this Stocking Stuffer Giveaway.


Every girl needs to start her day in the shower, right.   How about some great shampoo and conditioner to get your hair clean and soft.
Maijan Pure Argan Oil & Mint Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner is perfect for that.   Check them out on Twitter, Facebook and their other Facebook Page.    This stuff is amazing!!

After washing your hair, you will want to treat your body good to a nice Vanilla with Lavender Bud Sugar Scrub from Radiantly you.  This is amazing, and smells so good.  Awaken and soften your skin to get yourself ready for the day.  Also, there is a sample of Mango Coconut Whipped Body Butter to slather on your skin after your shower.

After a morning of the normal house shores you can slather your hands with Sebamed Hand and Nail Balm. Winter air can make skin dry and cracked, and itchy, but Sebamed Hand and Nail Balm can help your hands look and feel new again.

After breakfast you can enjoy some Beauty Bursts to help your skin be beautiful and radiant.   Beauty Bursts from NeoCell  are proof that consumers can have it all when it comes to supplements. They’re all-natural, effective, convenient and taste great.  Enjoy 2 of these before you start the rest of your day.

Before you head out the door for your daily exercise, or errands make sure your feet will be nice and comfy by slipping these Dr Scholl’s Cozy Cushions into your favorite shoes.  I love using Dr Scholl’s in all my shoes, because I like to walk comfy.  Grab another pair at the store and get $5.00 off by using this Coupon.

With the cold weather upon us it is also nice to be able to top your head with a warm but stylish hat when you head outside.  Top your head with a cute chunky stripped beanie from Lole Women.   Why not look cute when you have to wear a hat?

Everyone needs a cute little bag to throw stuff like coupons, shopping lists, snacks, kids toys, your tablet, etc., in when you head out the door.  This cute little zipper bag from Thirty One Gifts.  A cute grey bag with white dots and a pretty butterfly.  I love this bag, and it is perfect for many things.

Do you love to have a home smelling like you just baked something?   Place a chunk or two of these soy wax tarts from Bayberry Hollow Primitives into your tart melter and you will have a home smelling amazing in minutes.

When you day is done and your body is screaming from all you have done you can give yourself a nice relaxing massage with a Soothie Massager. Release that neck, body and back pain easily.  You can follow them on Twitter too.

Plus, on top of all these wonderful Stocking Stuffer goodies I have dug thru my stash and thrown in some other samples.  A mix of face masks, face cleanser and moisturizer, a shower gel, a lotion and more.

Note ~ you will not see a picture of the chunky beanie hat or the massager as they have not arrived to my house due to UPS not delivering in my area because we had a 3 day bad snow storm.   I will add pics of them when they get to me.


A few last minute goodies that arrived that I didn’t have when I took the group pic.   ;)

Get Hot and Sweaty with #Zaggora



Get Hot and Sweaty with #Zaggora

If you don’t have sweat pouring out from every area of your body when you are working out you are not doing it right.  Or, you aren’t wearing your Zaggora pants.  WOW ~ I honestly don’t think I have ever sweat so much in my life than when I am wearing my new Zaggora pants.

I was so excited when I got to review a pair of these hot new workout pants.    These pants are made with a multi-layer fabric technology that harnesses the body’s natural heat during exercise to help you burn more calories.   To say it in English.. they make you sweat!!  Tons!

I love my new Zaggora pants.   I choose the Atomica HotPants.   I like the fold down top and the fact they were more like leggins than shorts.  I like to cover my legs more when I am biking due to bugs… I hate bugs.   Not that bugs get to me when I am biking, it is when I stop that I am attacked, cuz I must taste good ;)  LOL!


I was so excited to try these out so I put them on and hubby and I decided to take a bicycle ride.   We started down the road, and it was about 70 degrees outside.   About a mile down the road I could feel the heat.  Wow.. a ton of heat.   I normally will sweat fairly quick when I workout so just thought I was sweating normal and since it was 70 degrees outside and the sun was very bright I thought that was it because I had black pants on.  Well, we rode about 3 miles and then stopped to turn around and I got off my bike for a minute.  I couldn’t believe how sweaty I was.   We took off back for home and I could just feel all the sweat inside my pants. Yeah, gross I know but I love it!  I love to sweat.   Sweating helps cleanse your body of toxins so I am ok with sweating.

Upon arriving home I had hubby take a couple more pics of me before I went in to shower.   I really like these pants because they are cute, comfortable and don’t look wet, when you are sweaty.

zaggora2 zaggora3 zaggora4

I know, not the best pics but I was exhausted, hot and sweaty.

I made my way into the house and to my bathroom to peel these off.  I actually left sweat all over my bathroom floor.  And, one could have wrung out my undies and filled a glass ;)  Hahaha!   (TMI)?   It felt good to peel these pants off, but it felt even better to know that I got a hell of a workout and did my body good.

I have to say if you are unsure of getting a pair of these pants, or any of their products, stop wondering and just order.  You will love them as much as I do!    And, because you are a Living Smart Girl reader you get a 10% discount when you order.  Use code ” LIVINGSMARTGIRL ” at checkout to get your discount.  Share the discount with your followers, friends, family, etc.

These fun, functional, stylish, heat generating, calorie burning pants are my favorite pants to wear.   We went biking again last night and I wore my Zaggora’s.  Dang.. sweating in no time and loving it.

I am going to grab a tank top and a blazer.  The blazer will be nice for riding bike in the fall.   Even for hiking, because it will keep the bugs off me and generate heat and help me burn more calories.

Have you tried the Zaggora clothing ?  What is your favorite, or what do you want to try?

Check them out on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Google+

Would you like to try a pair of Zaggora HotPants 2.0 Shorts ?   Well of course you would.  Enter our Giveaway to win a pair of these ~
