I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central for CRYSTAL LIGHT. I received a gift card to purchase CRYSTAL LIGHT products to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.


Are you trying to get off the soda train? It’s hard to jump, huh? I know! I did it myself. I wanted to pull every hair out of my head and I wanted to chew every fingernail to the ends. It was murder. I just couldn’t make the solid jump from sweet soda to plain, clear, tasteless water. Bleck. Then my sister in law told me about all the new CRYSTAL LIGHT flavors that she’d tried, once I told her I was going to review some on the blog. I had no idea that they had the liquids that you just squeeze into your water! These are a lifesaver and a half for me!



While walking through Walmart, I ran across this ginormous Miranda Lambert Platinum Points display. Poor Miranda. I had to move CRYSTAL LIGHT boxes so I could see her beautiful face. Muah!! Love you Miranda! You’re my gurrlll. So….basically, you buy some yummy CRYSTAL LIGHT and you can earn some Miranda Lambert Platinum Points which you can redeem for FREE stuff! Uhh, hello! I’m the queen of scanning receipts….just ask my husband! I drive him nutso with it!

I grabbed my newest obsession, which is the CRYSTAL LIGHT Blueberry Raspberry Liquid and then I snatched up some of the Sweet Tea for the husband. He does love his sweet tea. I guess I’m just not sweet enough for him. Ahem.




I drink bottled water when I’m on the run, but at home I love filling up a good ole fashioned Ball Mason jar with ice water and giving a couple of good squirts of the CRYSTAL LIGHT in there. While sitting outside today, my ice melted. I had it all ready to go, and then wouldn’t you know….I went to check the mail and got carried away with that and forgot ALL about my ice cold drink outside. Just dripping away with condensation. Oh well….it still tasted just as yummy!

If you buy CRYSTAL LIGHT, make sure to keep your receipts and sign up for Platinum Points to earn some FREE Miranda Lambert goodies. They have CD’s, mugs, even a signed guitar!! I’m saving up my points for the Miranda Lambert Platinum CD, but I already have more than enough to go ahead and snag an acoustic song download.
