Allied Shirts: Customize Your Style!



Lindsey here, and as you all know I love a celebration & I love a theme. Nothing screams celebration like a customized shirt or SHIRTS. Well DH's birthday is coming up and Allied Shirts has come to the birthday present rescue with fabulously trendy & fabulously easy to customize Shirts. Keep reading for a full low down of my go-to shirt company: Allied Shirts. And dont forget FREE SHIPPING ON ALL ORDERS!!!


I always loved the "hater" shirts but really wanted a couples version- double the hate right ;) I looked & looked and never saw a cute couples set of shirts. Well look no further with Allied Shirts I made my own. What do you think? I know DH will love them & he will be surprised. My plan is to wear mine and wrap his then he can open his & we can be matchy matchy :) 

Allied Shirts make designing your own shirt quick & easy. I did BOTH of the shirts above in about 15 minutes. The website is very easy to use and makes designing your own shirt dummy proof. You choose your font, you choose your art (I chose the heart above for example), you choose the color of your font, art, & T-shirt, you choose the style of shirt, and the size. Seriously click the mouse & see it on the screen and you know what you get will be exactly how you see it on the screen. 

I love that you can choose your shirt type. I really dont care for the fit of mens tees on me so I was  happy to see that Allied Shirts offered girly shirts & ladies shirts in addition to sweaters, hoodies, unisex and more.


Another reason I love Allied Shirts is because they are affiliates with some of my favorite trusted companies BuildASign.com and Printcopia. BuildASign is my go-to company for customized banners & signs and I use them for all my party and sign needs. No party is complete without a fun party banner.

Printcopia is a one stop shop for all of your canvas print needs. They make it easy to create one of a kind beautiful canvas prints!

Fitness For Us GIVEAWAY: Aqua Ears & Carrying Case

Enter the Fitness for the Rest of Us Giveaway right here: 

I am super excited about this giveaway as summer is in full force and the pool is looking better & better each day! Keep reading to learn all about AquaEars and enter to win a character set of your very own! I was very lucky to be provided with a set to review and I love them! I let my niece try them out when we went to the water park and she was super excited about the Hello Kitty character and she said she could hardly even tell she was wearing them. I used a pair to sleep with when we were camping and I am happy to report that the birds chirping so very early did not wake me! 


That’s right, it’s SUMMEAR – the time of year when it’s most important to provide ear protection for your kids during hot months of water fun in the pool, at the beach, and the water parks.  According to the CDC, germs along with water-loving bacteria such as Pseudomonas found in pools and at other recreational water venues are one of the most common causes of swimmer’s ear,medically known asotitis externa.  Pain,itchiness, redness or pus can occur whenwater stays in the ear canal for long periods of time, providing the perfect environment for germs to grow and infect the skin in the ear.  



·         Be an Explorer: Always take the time to explore around the swimming area to help your child identify the location of lifeguards, water preservers, bathrooms facilities, depth markers with shallow and deeps ends, sitting areas, and even other swimmer’s behavior in the area.

·         Pump your Brakes:  Never allow children to run or even walk fast around or in a swimming area.  The spillover and foot traffic from the water makes surfaces wet and slippery and children can easily injure themselves or others by falling on the hard surface or even in a body of water. Using the © Disney/Pixar CarsAquaEars ear plugs are a great way to remind them to “pump their brakes” and walk while enjoying water activities. 

·         Find Some Water Buddies: Even if a lifeguard is on duty, a child should never swim alone and should always have an adult supervising by land and preferably by sea.  Never leave any child unsupervised by or in the pool or other body of water.

·         The Fish Test: Your child may be more confident about their swimming abilities than you are so before they start to swim ask them to pass the ‘fish test’ by showing you some basic swimming techniques such as holding their breath, treading water and swimming underwater.  Be honest about their ‘fish test’ results by telling them where they are able or unable to venture based on your observations.  Make sure the lifeguard supports your ‘fish test’ findings.

Want to win a character set of AquaEars & carrying case of your very own? Enter below via rafflecopter:


Entries will be accepted until 11:59 pm on 7/26/13  and the winner will be selected randomly. Contest open to US residents, no PO Boxes. Good Luck!

XTRAIN Hard Strikes
Cathe Friedrich, 2012

Cathe works out in a brick set with 4 background exercisers to some great new music. You will only need weighted gloves & dumbbells for this 46 min boxing and conditioning workout. The dvd is fully chaptered and contains premixes & bonus segments.

After a warmup, exercises include: fun punch combos - often keeping your feet moving so you really keep your heart pumping, knee pulls, jack rope and scissor drills, jump squats, ice breakers, flurries, shuffle- hook and traveling punches. The upper body Conditioning segment includes: alt military press, bear crawl press ups, balance bi's, side plank shoulder press, tri dips, sit up & punch combos, and a sit up & push up combo. There is a separate cooldown section.

Bonus Core (10 min): sit up variations, crunch variations, V twists, gorilla walk, plank knee drops & knee pulls, plank toe taps, plank hold, & banana roll crunches. This was a tough little ab routine!!!

Bonus Burn Set Tris (14 min): Exercises include tri pushups, lying overhead tris, tubing French press, and kickbacks.

Bonus Heavy Bag (13 min): Wearing weighted gloves Cathe leads you through 4 sets of tabata punches, various punch combos for 20 seconds followed by 10 seconds of rest. I dont have a heavy bag so I just shadow boxed & still got a great workout.

Rep Bicep Challenge (7 min): 100 reps of barbell bicep curls!

I rate this a high intermediate routine in terms of intensity but found the choreo easy to catch on to. Fun routines, with lots of variety, cardio drills, boxing combos, and upper body strength work make this an awesome calorie burner & upper body toner. The time really flew by and I enjoyed the pace & worked up a great sweat! I received this dvd to review.

The FIRM: TransFirm Your Body 
Allie Del Rio, 2013 (produced in 2007, released in 2013)

Allie leads this 43 min routine with 4 background exercisers in the white brick set. One exerciser provides modifications and you will need your Fanny Lifter (called Body Trainer & TransFirmer as well) and a light set of dumbbells for this workout. 

This dvd contains fun floor & step routines, leg press, a tall box routine, a unique double box routine, and light 4 limb box & floor routines. After a warmup, exercises include: march & shuffle, lunge to box w/ clean & press, box toe taps & tri kickbacks, side lunge & row, straddle & bi curl, abduct & tri work, hip bump, tall box climb, and concludes with a nice ab routine (squat & diagonal swing, side knee pulls, boat on step, plank off the box adding knee pulls, and seated oblique work) and a final stretch.

I rate this an intermediate routine that like most FIRMs is easy to modify up or down. Allie does a great job of cuing and adds her own fun flair to this routine. I found this very versatile and it contains some fun & unique routines. Heavy up for a strength day or use light weights for a cardio day. I received this dvd to review.
