Hapari Swimwear knows women bodies from the way they design their swimwear. They know how to hide the belly, butt, hips, and thighs that women want to hide. They design their swimsuits to enhance a woman’s natural beauty – no matter her shape. They create them from the finest fabrics and with body-shaping features to help you feel comfortable and confident.


I always have a hard time finding a swimsuit and feel I get more frustrated from trying them on and running to different stores. They never fit right and don’t have want I want. I love the underwire in a swimsuit and a more slimming suit. I got the chance to review a Hapari Swimsuit and easy found one that I liked.  I chose the Mikado Hibiscus SOS Underwire Tankini and the Black Drawstring Swim Skirt with Bottom to match it. The underwire held me up and the drawstring skirt covered by thighs and butt.

I have never felt so confident wearing a swimsuit. And if you don’t know what size or style to get they have style consultants on hand to speak with to help you choose the right swimsuit. The customer service is amazing at Harpari. I first ordered the wrong size and it was too big when I got it. I explained to them and they were understanding and quick on the ball to get me a new one in time for summer. The ordering process is fast and I received it the swimsuit in a few days.

Bethany Frankel has paired up with Arizona Beverages to bring to you the best tasting drink without all those calories.  Skinny Girl now introduces Sparklers a nonalcoholic drink. They are made with real fruit juices and sparkling water. There are currently four flavors: Tangerine Mango, Strawberry Lemonade, Pink Grapefruit, and Pineapple Coconut. They are only 5 calories per serving.


My favorite is the Pineapple Coconut as it reminds me of the beach and nothing else. The other flavors were a hit in my house with my kids and husband. The good news is I didn’t have to feel guilty about drinking them since they are only 5 calories. And each of them have real fruit juice, six essential vitamins, super fruit extracts and Green Tea Polyphenols.

Summer would not be summer without the taste of Garrett Popcorn. They come in a decorative tin with a handle that is easy to carry to the pool or take on the road. They are the perfect summer snack to share with friends and family.


I received the Smoky CheeseCorn and the Chicago Mix to review. When I tried them the popcorn had an amazing flavor. It was much richer than other flavored popcorn I have had before. And the reason why they taste so good is because all Garrett Popcorn flavors are handmade daily using the highest quality ingredients. What other companies do you know that do that?

Smoky CheeseCorn- Freshly-melted, sharp cheddar cheese is stirred into each and every batch.

Chicago Mix– Combines sweet CaramelCrispwith savory CheeseCorn.

You can even custom design your tin with a company logo, your favorite team, and more. Head on over here to find a shop location or place an order.
