REVIEW: MudLOVE (& GIVEAWAY)

If you know me, HOPEFULLY you know that charity, giving to others, being a light, and helping those around me makes my heart SMILE! If I find a company doing this I normally never let them go, which is EXACTLY the case when it comes to MudLOVE.

Source

MudLOVE was started as a way to support clean water projects in Africa. They partner with Water for Good and every product purchased provides one week of clean water to someone in need in the Central African Republic. Along with providing clean water to a country in desperate need of hope, love and basic necessities, their products are an every day instrument of encouragement and inspiration.


I wish I could say I was an artist like my hubby, but I am not. I "try" my hardest (shoot, you should see some of the ceramics my parents still have of mine that I created in my high school classes!), but my lack of talent helps me to appreciate those who have those abilities even more (especially those who use that talent to make a difference in the world)!

So when this package from MudLOVE arrived in my mailbox, to say I was STOKED would be an understatement. I mean, I LOVE me an ARM PARTY (DUH!), so working with a company that makes AWESOME wrist candy AND helps bring clean water to the Central African Republic is RIGHT up my alley!


I was sent a classic "be the change (pink)" band, a classic "inspire (turquoise)" band, a classic "never give up (lime green)" band, a classic "shine (yellow)" band, and a custom "runner (gray)" band. Can you say BEYOND GENEROUS?!

Wore the "be the change" band when dropping off bouquets of flowers to
patients having a rough day at a local nursing home as part of #Carlees31.

You gotta "shine" while at the beach, #AmIRightOrAmIRight?!

OBVIOUSLY I had to wear my "runner" band while RUNNING!

I love that the bands are not only cute and inspirational, but also comfortable. The elastic is able to be sized up or down to fit most any one's wrists (and I have tiny ones). The clay they use is 100% non-hazardous and the glazes are lead-free and non-toxic. Although I normally have a lot of wrist candy, I have to say, these pieces are my NEW FAVES! The Classic Bands are stamped with the specific phrase while the Custom Bands have your choice of words/ symbols printed on the surface.

And here's the moment you've been waiting for... Not only did they send me all of these goodies, they are offering YOU the option to win some as well. There will be TWO winners selected - the first winner will be able to select one of the Classic Bands and the second winner will be able to create their own Custom Bands.

I love the Be The Change motto

Leah Jones said...

One that says "Be Happy" would be fun!

I like the phrase "Run Happy." It helps me remember how happy running makes me, even when I'm struggling during a run.

Zenaida Arroyo said...

"Run and Be Happy"

Ty Godwin said...

"Inspired" for my daughter.

Duchess said...

Runner for sure!

jmc0618 said...

Progress not perfection

I'd either get the "Smile" one or a custom one that says "Saudades" (my favorite word in Portuguese!)

I would want Be Bold on mine!

Tayna said...

I would choose, "Be Extraordinary."

AER-Runs said...

I would get something like "Run Happy" or "Relax". I find that whenever I'm running I get so caught up in "having" to do it and sometimes forget to have fun! It would be a great little reminder for me!

Farrah said...

I'd get "be the change" or "never give up!" :]!

Jill Jones said...

Sarah said...

So many good choices! But I'd say either "Never give up" or "Run the Race" or "Perserverance"

Can I just have them all??!? :)
