BTS PRO by 66 Audio: Bluetooth Headphone Review

bts-pro-1I was on the hunt for some Bluetooth headphones that not only delivered fantastic sound quality, but also wore well throughout all types of workouts, which included the training I was doing for my second half marathon.

I received a lot of feedback from friends and family, and, of course, Beats led the pack. I don’t know if I’m biased (maybe I’m totally missing out), but the mainstream push behind the brand along with the high price tag left a bad taste in my mouth.

I instead ended up going with the BTS PRO headphones by 66 Audio. I really liked how they wrapped around your ears for a secure hold, and that they were light and not clunky for my runs and HIIT workouts. They promised 40 hours of continuous playback with 400 hours of standby power and 100 feet of range. They also fold down so they’re compact for travel, which is something I do often!

When I first received the headphones I was very delighted by the look and feel of the packaging… AKA these would make a great gift! The packaging evoked a high end feel, was very clean, well thought out and the instruction made it simple to get started right away. The headphones also came with a zip case and USB charging cable.

As I said earlier, these wore very well. I have used them through long distance run workouts, HIIT/plyo exercises and weightlifting. I have had no issues whatsoever with the fit or the headphones moving during wear.

Aside from fit my BIGGEST pro with these headphones is the battery life. I wore these on multiple long distance flights, through a little over a month of daily workouts, and while at work when I needed to power through project deadlines… AND I NEVER CHARGED THEM ONCE!

These headphones retail for $129.99 which is a nice little savings over the big bad Beats competition. You might not be getting the flashy branding, but the look and functionality of these headphones can’t be beat for the price.

You can purchase them here!

Happy listening!

I’ve become a BIG tea fan recently. Maybe it came with momdom (the act of becoming a mom), and the fact that I stay in on more weekends than I’d like to admit… whatever the reason I’m always on the search for a new tea to try!

My mom got me this “24 Days of Tea” set as a gift this year, and I’m already totally in LOVE. The teas are AMAZING and the flavors are like nothing I’ve tried before. I can’t wait to see what tea is in store for me each night. THE SUSPENSE KILLS ME! (ok, it’s really not that intense… but I’ve never been so excited about loose dried of leaves in my life).

Even though we’re a little late to give this as the typical December advent calendar, it would make a fantastic gift for a loved one or friend to enjoy during the upcoming chilly winter months!

Whenever people ask me how I stay on track with healthy eating, or eat the same meals for a week straight, I tell them SEASONING. Flavor can really make or break your meals, and chicken breast can really be transformed with the right spices.

Flavor God is my HANDS DOWN favorite seasonings out there. They are chemical and filler free, and are generally low in sodium (their no salt option is AMAZE). I have tried so many different seasonings on my health and fitness journey, and these take the cake… did I mention they have a chocolate cake seasoning that clocks in at ZERO calories?

My favorite seasoning has to be “Garlic Lover’s” because who doesn’t like garlic? But other favorites include: Taco Tuesday, Jamaican Jerk, Garlic Herb & Himalayan Salt, Everything, Lemon and Garlic and Chocolate Donut.

A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS: DAY 8

DAY 8: NYX Cosmetics Soft Matte Lip Cream

GET IT FOR: MAKEUP JUNKIES,
TEENAGERS,

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams are one of my favorite products the brand has to offer. They go on very creamy and pigmented, don’t dry out the lips, but last a ridiculously long time (not as long as long-wear lippies do, however). These are my go-to lip colors recently because of how comfy they are to wear. It’s like wearing yoga pants… but on your mouth. Did I mention they’re only $6 each!!!

My favorite colors are: Amsterdam, Addis Ababa, Buenos Aires, Tokyo and Prague… notice the theme in naming convention?

These are sold at Ulta, CVS, Target, or anywhere drugstore makeup brands are sold. I have my best luck at finding colors in-stock at CVS and Ulta.

A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS: DAY 7

DAY 7: BEACHBODY PERFORMANCE ENERGIZE

GET IT FOR: FITNESS JUNKIES,
TIRED MOMS,
EARLY BIRDS

BUY IT HERE FOR $50

As a mom of a toddler, and someone who gets up at 4:30am to workout, I usually need something to kick my butt into gear in the wee hours of the morning. Pre-workout is a powder that you mix with water prior to a workout to give your energy and endurance.

I have tried quite a few different pre-workouts, and Energize is my hands-down favorite. Sometimes pre-workouts can be a little too intense, make you itchy…. blegh. Energize gives me the boost I need and ensures I get my workout in bright and early. I also definitely have noticed a difference in my workouts when using it. I am able to get a few more reps in, or keep up my cardio for a bit longer.
Energize comes in a small tub and includes 40 servings. I generally use two servings (or scoops) on mornings I am planning on a more intense workout. The tub lasts me about a month.

A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS: DAY 6

DAY 6: Stadler Form Jasmine Diffuser

GET IT FOR: ESSENTIAL OIL LOVERS,
TEACHERS,
MOMS

BUY IT HERE FOR $45

diffuser

My list earlier contained doTERRA essential oils as one of my current obsessions. I ordered a diffuser with my first kit of oils because I loved the idea of making the house smell yummy. My 1 year old quickly broke that one (#momlife), so I hoped on Amazon and did some research.

Aside from the fact that this one came in pink (I know, I know, I have a problem), it had great reviews and was recommended to me from a few different essential oil lovers. It is a really nice looking diffuser, runs for a solid 8 hours with no refilling, and is totally silent. I got the white one for the house as I didn’t think my husband would be happy about a pink contraption in our living room, and I took the pink one to work to use there.

This would be a great gift for anyone who currently uses essential oils, or could make a super nice package along with some oils. My handsdown favorite oil to diffuse is On Guard when me or the family is sick, or Cheer on a day to day. Enjoy!

A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS: DAY 5

DAY 5: KATE SPADE IDIOM BANGLES

GET IT FOR: GLAM GIRLS,
FASHIONISTAS,
YOUR BFF,
BOSS BABES

BUY THE GOLD VERSION HERE FOR $58.00
OR THE SILVER VERSION HERE

If you know me you know I’m a Kate Spade junkie. The brand brings a fantastic air of whimsy while still remaining elevated and extremely feminine. If I could I would spend every last dollar I made on Kate Spade clothes and accessories… but unfortunately me and my family require food and shelter to survive.

While I could post everything on the Kate Spade website as “a few of my favorite things” I’ve narrowed it down to my go-to gift: a gold or silver idiom bangle (aka bracelet if you want to be boring about it). The bangles are all engraved with cute phrases like: I resolve to… wear more heels, arrive fashionably late, leave them speechless and eat cake for breakfast.

Totes adorbs! Any fashionista will LOVE the beautiful Kate Spade addition to her daily arm glam!

A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS: DAY 4

DAY 4: DOTERRA ESSENTIAL OILS

GET IT FOR: ANYONE WHO IS INTO NATURAL/HOMEOPATHIC,
PEOPLE WITH KIDS,
HEALTH NUTS

BUY THE FAMILY ESSENTIALS KIT HERE FOR $200.00
(I recommend this starter kit, but you can always go with single oils)

I was recently introduced to essential oils through my cousin Kristina. I had seen people use them on insta, Facebook, at the office, etc. and was always intrigued by them. I am a big fan of natural remedies over medication, and my mom was always pushing oils and enzymes and probiotics on me as a kid so I guess my affinity for it makes sense.

After my cousin started posting about some of the uses for essential oils I decided to hop on the bandwagon, and I am really glad I did. From home cleaners to skincare, essential oils can do almost anything. My personal favorites include: On Guard, Lavender, Lemon (for water, tea and a million other things), Motivate and Cheer.

While you can use the oils in a variety of fashions (diffuse, orally, roller ball, etc.) my absolute favorite way is to diffuse most of them. I will do another post in a few days about my favorite diffuser!

Who has already tried essential oils, and who out there is thinking about trying them?!

A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS: DAY 3

DAY 3: 21 DAY FIX CHALLENGE PACK

GET IT FOR: ANYONE WHO WANTS TO GET HEALTHY,
BEGINNER TO INTERMEDIATE ATHLETES,
PEOPLE LOOKING TO LOSE 5-20 LBS

BUY THE CHALLENGE PACK HERE FOR $140.00

21-day-fix-560

Ok, I’m really excited about this one. This is exactly how I started my health and fitness journey in February of this year. I purchased a 21 Day Fix Challenge Pack hoping it would some how magically change my life. While there was no magic… only sweat, some tears and a lot of cursing… my life really did change. I lost 15 lbs my first month with the program, and now I am a totally 21 Day Fix aficionado… and down over 50 lbs. Here’s a video about my journey and what comes in the pack!

The program is really full circle. It uses proper nutrition, fitness and portion control to get your body and mind back on track, all while losing weight, toning up, and being healthier both inside and out.

So what do you get? Each pack comes with a 30-day supply of Shakeology, a nutrient-dense shake that you drink once per day (it comes in a ton of flavors, and vegan options are available), 21 Day Fix fitness DVDs and a workout schedule, shaker cup, meal program guide book with tons of recipes, and portion control colored containers.

You also get access to any of my accountability groups. I run them monthly and they really have been my key to success with the program. The group is a bunch of people all following the program together. We post daily check-ins, recipes, meal guides, motivation and inspiration to stay on track and really change your life!
