Somehow every pair of earphones that sees their way into my life seems to walk off with one or the other of my two teenagers. Hence I'm left with the ones that came with my phone that don't really fit into my ears. Hence again, I don't really use them.
Last week though, Sol Republic made a change in my life when they sent a pair of Everyday Active Relays with MY name on the box. "No," I told both kids, "these have are mine. This is for work, I need to review them." And off I went to the gym for a test run and where I listened to music that actually sounded full and rich for the first time in forever.
And they didn't fall out of my ears (Finally... a set that stays in!). And I changed the volume with the little tab on the cord. And I love them.
But, good mom that I am, I let the kids have their go this holiday week for a more comprehensive review, and once again I've been asked, "Mom, these sound awesome... can I have them??"
Coming with different sized ear-tips, the relays fit all of our ears, and I love the Sol Republic "Ear-tips For Life" program. Lose an ear-tip? Need a different size? Simply fill out the form on the website and they'll send you a new one.
Founded in 2011, the three founders (consumer electronics veterans) have set out to "rid the world of hollow sounding headphones and to make great sound available to everyone." In my opinion, they've succeeded.
Entering this holiday season, I've enjoyed a fabulous Thanksgiving with my entire family all under the same roof for the first time in months. My husband made it home just in time for dinner, and my son surprised me a day early as he arrived home from college. I've loved every minute baking and cooking up a storm, and these Peanut Butter Krispie Treats were requested to bring back to the UCSB dorm.
As I packed them carefully in the top of his backpack, little did I know I covered up the Sol Republic Relays, and just hours ago I received a text from him saying, "Everyone loves the treats. Hey... I thought you were keeping those headphones for yourself, but thanks!". Good thing I've already ordered a pair for him for Christmas... looks like maybe I will finally have a set for myself...
Now with everyone headed back out into the world I'm ready for some holiday shopping and I'm eager to help you too. Perfect for any active music lover on your list, these relays will bring smiles as gifts are opened.

Peanut Butter Krispie Treats
A favorite in our family for years, basic krispie treats receive a luscious topping of a Chocolate/Peanut Butter Ganache for something a little extraordinary.
6 cups puffed rice cereal
1 bag (10.5 oz) marshmallows
2 Tbs butter (or butter alternative, we use Earth Balance)
1 1/4 cups creamy peanut butter
2 cups dark chocolate, chopped
Prepare a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray.
In a large bowl mix the cereal and mini peanut butter cups, set aside. Melt the marshmallows and butter together in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Pour the melted marshmallow mixture over the cereal mixture, quickly stirring well to evenly coat the cereal. Pour the cereal mixture into the prepared pan and evenly press into the pan.
In a small sauce pan melt the peanut butter and chocolate over low heat, stirring to combine. Pour the melted chocolate over the cereal mixture, spreading with a rubber spatula to cover.Allow the topping to set, then cut and serve!
Note: We were too impatient to allow ours to set, so we placed it into the refrigerator for about 1/2 hour to speed up the process!!
|Liv Life received one pair of Sol Republic Relays and Sol Republic is also supplying the giveaway product for this post. All opinions and thoughts on the product are mine and that of my kids (also relay testers). We wouldn't recommend then if we didn't like them.|
