Back To School with CUE STICKS Review and Giveaway (2 Winners)! (CLOSED)

Do you remember being a kid and getting to the bottom of a Cracker Jacks box and finding the little prize at the bottom? My favorite was always the temporary tattoos! I think that is why I fell in love with the concept of Cue Sticks...where temporary tattoos take on a whole new meaning!!

I am so excited to share with you a company called Cue Sticks which features motivational stickers and temporary tattoos that are designed to inspire and motivate!  Nancy Shapiro used to write herself little inspirational messages, but wanted a way to bring her messages with her wherever she was, and hence, Cue Sticks was born!  It is ideal for anyone needing a bit of a confidence boost: Perfect for:

  • Mothers
  • Teachers
  • Fitness Trainers
  • Educators
  • Students
  • Children
  • Dieters
  • Nurses
  • Patients
  • Nutritionists
  • Anyone needing a boost of confidence!
Here are some examples of the temporary tattoos:

My children loved the tattoos so much, as they provided  positive reinforcement in a way that they could SEE and it made it fun for them! They actually cleaned up their bedrooms all by themselves and was rewarded with a Cue Sticks temporary tattoo and they had fun showing off their tattoos all day!!

I loved the "I'll Do What It Takes" tattoo and it was what I needed to get the ball rolling on a day when I had so much to do that I just felt too overwhelmed. When I felt a bit discouraged, I'd look down and see the inspirational message and I kept on working toward that end goal!!

Another goal that I am attempting to conquer is losing some weight. When a recent doctor's visit led me to being put on medication for my blood pressure, I quickly made the decision that I was going to take control of my health and therefore, I placed this motivational sticker on the cabinet where we keep all the snacks and sugary cereals--

Now every time I head for a snack, I have a little battle inside my head. Do I really want that chocolate bar? Do I really need those cookies? Some days, the candy bar still beckons, but it makes me aware of the decision I am about to make...and getting me thinking about it is the first step toward improving my health!

Every little bit helps!!

With the busy school year fast approaching, it would be a great time to purchase Cue Sticks for your own children. Let them wear the "You Can Do It" tattoo on the day of the big test or big game night! The uses are endless!! 

To see the complete Cue Sticks line of products and to get your own Cue Sticks, simply visit the online store! Shipping is free and there is no minimum order!

The Good: Cue Sticks allows anyone, anywhere a boost of confidence. It's like having your own personal life coach right beside you! They are easy to apply, easy to take off. They are fun for everyone and are a constant positive reinforcement tool! 

The Bad:  I honestly do not have anything bad to say about the Cue Sticks line of products. The temporary tattoos are indeed.. temporary and will start to fade from wear. I can't wait for more phrases such as "No More Excuses", "Make it Happen" and "You Control Yourself"... or something similar. This is one company that is worth watching!!
