Send the man in your life for an ultimate grooming experience at the Boardroom- now open in San Antonio. #GIVEAWAY

Just this last week I sent my husband to the Boardroom to check it out and for some manly grooming. It was about time that he went and spent some "me time" on himself without the children and wife tagging along. So wile I went on a lunch date with my girls he got treated. But before I have him write out how his experience was I want to show you where I sent him so you can do the same and send your husband.

Jared's Experience! 

When my wife told me she had booked an appointment for a haircut my initial reaction was probably close to shock.  What was wrong with the $10.00 haircut I had been getting?  Was my hair that bad looking?  Then she told me where it was going to be at and showed me the services that they offered. I can tell you that my disbelief was quickly turned into excitement.  

Doing some of my own research and looking at pictures of the Boardroom took me back to my childhood when my father used to take my brothers and I to the old neighborhood barber, line us up in the barber chairs and we would all get a cut at the same time.  

Upon walking into the place it took me back and reminded me of those memories I had long forgotten.  I was greeted by friendly staff and after telling them it was my first time they asked if I wanted a tour of the place and gave me an explanation of the services they offered.  

My wife set me up with the Boardroom's signature service. The Benchmark!
A personal Consultation
Tailored Cut
Paraffin Wax Hand Dip
Shampoo and Conditioning
Scalp Massage
Pressure-Point Face Massage
Steamed Towel
Stress Relieving Hand Massage
Cleansing Rinse
and a Finishing Touch Style 

Let me tell you... I was extremely satisfied with the Benchmark service.  The more than professional 
staff made it an even better experience.  It is definitely the place I would love to take my boys to create those memories I had with my father going to the barber all those years ago.  Except this time I can get the straight-razor shave!

With the Grand Opening of the Boardroom here in San Antonio, Boardroom has offered a giveaway for one of my lucky readers to keep for himself or for you to give to the/a man in your life as a gift. Don't forget to let them know that Erica sent you :)

Good Luck....

In need of skin healing? Miracle Balm to the rescue.

With Fall and then Winter just around the corner I along with half the world are going to start having the dreaded problem that is DRY SKIN... Dry skin is almost like a curse when it comes to winter for me. My hands, knees and elbows always get so dry that sometimes my skin cracks. That or I just tend to look like a lady in her 90s.

With this problem on the horizon I have decided to turn my skin over to Sarah McNamara's Miracle Balm. Something that I can throw into my purse and cary with me, use on any part of my body and something that gets the job done in the 2.5 seconds that it takes me to apply.

Being that this Miracle Balm is a multi-purpose balm designed to immediately hydrate both sensitive and irritated skin, but also help soothe aggression and stressed skin as well. Made from blends of waxes, oils, botanical antioxidants and reparative ingredients like Manuka Honey and Japanese Licorice Root Extract this balm is the perfect solution for people with problems like mine.

So if you are looking for something that helps soothe and moisturized dry skin, recover from irritation, and reduce the stinging. This Miracle Balm is just what you are looking for.
Putting just a tad on my finger it will be just enough for both my hands. Making my hands as smooth as a babies bottom. Who can beat that?

It is the ultimate skin soothing solution for the face and body.

If you are a new parent let me just warn you now, toddlers go to the bathroom A LOT! Finding the right diapers  that can not only withstand my two year old's "activities" but also easy on the wallet is no easy task.  As a family on a budget, Jared and I have decided to stick with Parent's Choice diapers found at Walmart. 

Saving money and doing it with my little man is always fun. Who doesn't love to save a buck right? With Luke being in a size 6 diaper, diapers tend to get pricey when using other national brands. But with these diapers coming in at $.21 a diaper (cheapest on the market, trust me I checked) I tend to save around $240 a year. 

Like I said LOVE.  #BabyDiapersSavings 

Luke is now at the age of wanting to help mamma do everything, including shopping. He officially does not want to sit in the cart while mamma has all the fun. He likes to count all the numbers on the boxes of diapers until he gets to size 6, then he half carries/half drags the diapers to the cart for me. Perhaps he's learning to help from his Dad?  But then again he is two...  At this point any and all help will be a blessing when our daughter, Ryan, shows up. 

Needing a flexible, as well as absorbent, diaper on Luke is a must. Learning from his brother to tumble is now all the rage in our house. Jumping and flipping, running along the edge of the couch. Hoping for my little man not to fall has been keeping my husband and I on our toes.  Luke knows only two speeds: really fast mode and sleep mode.  I am actually shocked I could get him to stay in one spot while I took these pictures.  To say I need diapers that fit him well, to stay on and also keep him dry would be an understatement.  

Parent's Choice Diapers definitely passes the "Luke Test"!

3 out of 4 moms agree that Parent's Choice are the same or better than their current baby diaper brand of choice. See for yourself: save money, and live better with these coupons. 

Baggu Backpack Giveaway

Not to long ago I did a review on the amazing Baggu. I decided to look and see if they had any new designs that would be great for Christmas gifts to some of my girlfriends. Well come to find out they not only have amazing new designs but also tons of different bags. One being their Backpack. 

Of course who ever has enough bags? Not this girl! I decided that I needed the Baggu Backpack. They came in all different colors but I decided that I wanted it in clay. 

It is the perfect size for all the boys things that I take with me everywhere. Including of course my wallet when I'm not in the mood to carry a purse. A handy zipper that's hidden on the side of the bag was perfect for me to throw my phone and keys in when i'm in a hurry. 

Baggu has decided to do a giveaway so that one other can enjoy their backpack as much as I have. 

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. Erica Start walking is not responsible for giveaway.

Garcinia Cambogia Giveaway #garcinia #giveaway

Garcinia Cambogia has been flying across the web and I've been asked many times if it really works. 

Yes it does work. I have used it before and will use it once again. I'm asked a lot how it burns fat and what exactly does it do. In Garcinia Cambogia the main ingredient is something called HCA (Hydroxycitric Acid) which helps reduce your glucose absorption. Reducing your glucose absorption will lead to losing fat.  When I use it it also helps me with curbing my cravings. 

Garcinia Cambogia is made with the HIGHEST quality. Absolutely NO fillers, soy, wheat, eggs, fish, stimulants or additives. I also like that Garcinia Cambogia is also 100% Vegan and Gluten Free and that it is made in the USA. 

The real question is are you ready to start shedding the pounds with something more natural? 

If so... Enter my giveaway.. One lucky person will get to try out this amazing product for free.
