Forget Getting Burned & Start Getting Bronzed – Hawaiian Tropic Product Review

An ongoing joke I have is that I no longer sunburn because I’m Italian now. You see I’m Irish and I’ve always burned, until I married an Italian and now I actually tan.

Ok truth is, I did marry an Italian. I also started my love fest with Hawaiian Tropic at the same time. I say I tan now because I’m Italian but the truth of the matter is, I owe it all to Hawaiian Tropic. My go-to product of choice is the Hawaiian
Tropic Lightweight Sheer Touch SPF 30
. If you’re Irish or any other fair skin friend, there is nothing on earth I recommend more than this product. Since using it, I have not gotten single sunburn, haven’t peeled and have been a beautiful bronze.

Not only do their products work but they smell incredible and don’t leave you with that sticky feeling. I’ve tried oodles of sun care products and they smell like alcohol and either dry out your skin or make you feel all sticky. When I use Hawaiian Tropic products my skin feels moisturized and protected.

In addition to being completely obsessed with the Sheer Touch SPF 30, I’m also a huge advocate of their Lime Coolada
After Sun Moisturizer
. Not only does it protect your skin and moisturize wonderfully, but I personally feel that it extends the length of your tan.

Once my tan is under way after using the SPF 30 I often switch over to theHawaiian Tropic Crème 10. It is also super moisturizing and smells delish.

So there was no doubt that I was super excited to win the Hawaiian Tropic giveaway from Style and Error! Not only was I going to receive awesome Hawaiian Tropic swag (which as you can see I adore) but I also received a super cute beach tote, sunglasses and flower hair pin to boot.

I also have a new found love for the Hawaiian Tropic Shimmer SPF 15 and  Hawaiian Tropic Shimmer After Sun. Both products leave your skin with a beachy sheen. Not in an oily way though. It gives your skin a little shimmer. Makes sunbathing a little more festive.

Here’s a pic of my awesome prize pack.

Items included are: Beach tote, hat and sunglasses Hawaiian Tropic Shimmer SPF 15 Hawaiian Tropic Shimmer After Sun Hawaiian Tropic Lightweight Sheer Touch SPF 30 Hawaiian Tropic Lightweight Sheer Touch SPF 60 Hawaiian Tropic Crème 10

Mrs. G's & Trenton Thunder Team Up

I’m in a box, outside but inside. I can smell popcorn and hotdogs. Anticipating seeing golden retrievers. Where am I? If you guessed the press box of the Trenton Thunder, you guessed right.

Recently the hubs and I were invited to sit in the press box at a Trenton Thunder game as part of the Mrs. G’s VIB blogger series. Debbie Schaeffer of Mrs. G’s has teamed up with the Trenton Thunder to provide various giveaways throughout the season. Tonight they were giving away a brand new Weber grill.

Nick and I were positioned in the front row of the press box. Before the game got started, the staff at Trenton Thunder put out an amazing spread of food. I must say their BBQ ribs were incredible! If you haven’t already heard, Trenton Thunder has a brand new menu, check it out here.

All the Mrs. G’s VIB bloggers were very excited to be a part of the event. It’s not every day you are invited to sit in a press box. While the men were going to concentrate on the actual game, I was going to focus my attention on other aspects of Waterfront Park. As I already mentioned the food was superb.

Besides the players, Derby and Chase are the other stars at Trenton Thunder. They are 2 golden retrievers who, if you have been to a Trenton Thunder game, would know exactly who they are. They are the “bat boys” or “bat dogs” in this case. They run onto the field and retrieve the bats that the players throw. They are super cute and who doesn’t love a golden retriever. One of the dogs came up to the press box and I was thrilled to be able to see him and pet him. I guess all the fame has gone to his head, or it could have been the heat, because he was less then friendly. As I said in my live-tweeting that night, he was a bit of a primadonna.

I checked out the Trenton Thunder store, as I was hoping to score a nice comfy Yankee’s sweatshirt, as they typically carry a lot of Yankee paraphernalia. No such luck. Not one Yankee sweatshirt to be found. Oh well.

During the 5th inning there were the 5th inning fist pumps. Only in Jersey! The field sign flashed G-T-L and the crowd went wild. Fists were pumping all over the stadium. Even in the press box.

Mick Foley the famed wrestler was there to throw out the first ball and to sign autographs afterwards. When we arrived I was asked if I was interested in interviewing him. I had to Google him real quick, because quite frankly I had no idea who he was. Not a wrestling fan. But there was a huge line of people waiting to get his autograph. My girls from “Jerseylicious” would have been proud to see him sporting his leopard shirt. Between the leopard shirt and the 5th inning fist pump Trenton Thunder was Jerseylicious for sure.

Did you know Trenton Thunder does birthday parties? How cool is that? What a great way to celebrate your child’s birthday than at a game.

At the front gate there was a huge blow up slide, which I was tempted to try out, but being that I was wearing a skirt, didn’t think it would have been the best idea.

is super cute, the food is great, the crowd had fun and I was so happy to be a part of the day. In the end, the Thunder and Sea Wolves were tied. Our blogger friends had left, but ya never know what can happen, so we needed to wait it out. Sure enough, Brandon Laird scored a walk off home run to win the game. He also hit for the cycle last night (the hubs said, not sure what that means).

Thank you to Trenton Thunder and Mrs. G’s for inviting us to participate. I had a blast. Now, if you are looking for a more detailed article on the actual game, you’ll need to check out my hubs report. He’s the sports enthusiast.
