4th of July Necessities

I cannot believe that this weekend is the Fourth of July. I just cannot. I need to stop saying things like that because I sound like a little old lady. “Time flies and before ya know it, you’re over here like me!” (In my best granny voice) But seriously, summer is in full swing and one of my favorite things about summer has got to be all the get togethers. The outdoor BBQ’s, family dinners, and celebrations. It’s definitely my jam.

Now, my husband, as you might know, isn’t American. Although he can respect the holiday, it doesn’t mean as much to him. He still likes to celebrate with us and he brings a little bit of his flavor along with him. And I love it!

See, he loves music. He plays it when he gets ready, always takes time in the car to turn it on before we drive, even if it’s just a 5 minute drive (which actually bugs the heck out of me, let’s just GO!) and he likes to play it in our house. So when holidays and parties come up, he busts out his speaker.

Monster sent us the new Monster SuperStar speak to try and it’s awesome. It’s the worlds smallest Bluetooth speaker so it’s perfect to take with you for all those summer parties. Even though the speaker is smaller than most part phones (specially mine, the ginormous iPhone 6+!) but it still packs the punch of a full size speaker. It is water resistant, so blast that baby by the pool! Available in neon blue, neon pink, neon green, or gray you can find this awesome speaker at Walmart.

Now, Monster sent me the SuperStar to try out and I loved it so much that I wanted to make sure one lucky reader gets one too! Head over to my Instagram and enter to win there! The giveaway will close Friday, so go enter now!
