  • Making Sabbath Rest a Priority
    25 May 2022

    “Start where you are.” Such a short statement but it has such a huge impact.

    In this episode of The Crystal Paine Show, Bob and Linda Lotich, authors of their new book Simple Money, Rich Life: Achieve True Financial Freedom and Design a Life of Eternal Impact, talk about how they’ve made Sabbath a priority in their home and lives and how to just start where you are.

    In this age of busyness when we all have a lot on our plates, is Sabbath rest even possible? If so, what would that look like? We delve into what it looks like for Bob & Linda and how we all can find ways to practice it in our own lives — even if we have a very full schedule.

    We also talk about how this practice is more about our hearts and releasing our sense of control and micromanaging our lives and instead resting in Jesus.

    Bob and Linda share their experiences, what they’ve learned, how this practice has deeply impacted them, and struggles they have encountered along the way. I hope this episode inspires you with ideas for how you, too, can implement a regular practice of Sabbath in your own life and what that might look like for you.

    In This Episode

    [00:34] – Welcome to another episode of The Crystal Paine Show.

    [01:28] – Bob & Linda introduce themselves.

    [04:57] – How did you recognize there was a need for Sabbath?

    [05:57] – Bob talks about how hard it was to take a break for a week the first time.

    [07:05] – Did it shift something in your soul when you took time off?

    [09:20] – Bob and Linda explain how they set up and delegate when taking off time.

    [10:45] – What can someone do if they don’t have the luxury of taking a full month off or even a week off?

    [13:05] – Linda shares that what you can do is make your time count and be intentional.

    [14:28] – I read a snippet from Simple Money, Rich Life.

    [16:42] – How do you practice Sabbath when you have young kids to take care of?

    [18:20] – Bob and Linda share what Sunday Family Day looks like.

    [20:12] – We talk about the advice they would share with a couple who may not be on the same page.

    [23:40] – The question to ask is, “What does this look like for each person?”

    [24:12] – How have you invited and talked to your kids about Sabbath?

    [26:12] – Linda and Bob unpack what it means to live the lifestyle of the Sabbath.

    [29:19] – We discuss one practical step that you can take to help you rest in Jesus.

  • Ultimate Guide To Finding the Perfect Bikini Online — Every Time
    25 May 2022

    As anyone who’s ever tried on a bikini in a mall changing room knows the experience can be — shall we say — not ideal. The fluorescent lights are unforgiving, the AC is freezing and the long line of shoppers waiting outside your door grumbling for you to hurry up already is nerve-wracking. 

    That’s why we prefer the experience of shopping for swimwear online. Not only do you get to try out swimsuits in the privacy (and comfortable lighting and temperature) of your home, but you get instant access to a greater variety of brands, styles and price points. 

    That said, there are challenges that come with finding swimwear on the internet. To help you hunt down the two-piece of your dreams, we’ve created a comprehensive guide to buying a bikini online. 

    How To Find the Perfect Bikini Online 

    No matter what your preferred style, body type or budget, here are a few pointers to keep in mind when searching for a suit online:

    1. Know Your Measurements 

    One of the most challenging parts of bikini shopping is that there isn’t really universal sizing across brands — one brand’s medium could be another’s large, while one brand’s 4 could be another’s 8. Your surest route for identifying the best size for your body is to take your measurements and compare them to the brand’s size chart.

    2. Purchase Multiple Sizes

     If your bank account balance allows, purchase multiple sizes of the same suit. This will up your chances of finding the most flattering fit on your first go. 

    3. Triple Check the Return Policy 

    For the previous tip to work, the brand must have a return policy that allows you to send back bad fits and unflattering styles — ideally for free. Before purchasing a swimsuit — especially if you’re purchasing multiple sizes — triple check the policy to make sure it accepts swimsuit returns, and to see if it provides free, uncomplicated return shipping. If you are buying a suit on clearance, double-check to make sure it’s not a final sale. 

    4. Choose the Right Fit for Your Body Type 

    Many an article has been dedicated to the complex process of finding the best bathing suit for different body types. While conceding that this is a tricky, nuanced art form, we’ve included a few basic ideas to keep in mind: 

    • For a Pear Shape: Go for an eye-catching upper piece to draw attention upward and help balance out the proportions. Consider a bikini bottom skirt if you’re concerned about getting enough coverage on your lower half — the bottom of this bikini set from SHEIN is a super cute example. 
    • For a Small Bust: Because a smaller chest demands less support, you’re free to go for minimal coverage options on top, such as a tiny scoop top or a bandeau — like this versatile top from Pitusa. 
    • For a Large Bust: To make sure you get the support you need, look for suits with molded cups or underwire, like this top from Bare Necessities. Go for thicker, adjustable straps — the thicker the strap, the better the support. 
    • For a Curvy Shape: To highlight your curves, consider color blocking with a bright, solid color top and a contrasting, equally vivid solid-color bottom. Vintage-inspired suits with high waists are also a good bet. A perfect example is this suit from Adore Me. 
    • For an Athletic Shape: To enhance your curves, consider suits with less coverage. For athletic shapes, we also love monokinis like this one from Lulu’s. 
    Our Favorite Online Places To Shop for Bikini Swimsuits

    Return Policy: The Torrid return policy allows you to return items within 60 days of your receipt — either in-store or via mail. If you return items by mail, a $6 return shipping fee will be deducted from your refund. And try before you buy options are available.

  • Music Fest Survival Guide
    25 May 2022

    Music festivals are meant to be super fun events where you can hang out with friends — old and new — and dance and sing (okay, scream) along with your favorite musical artists. They can also be really stressful and overwhelming, especially if you’re not properly prepared ahead of time.

    But don’t worry, we’ve got you.

    Whether you’re traveling hours to set up camp for a multi-day event or just hitting up a local concert for the weekend, the tips in our concert guide below will help you prepare for festival season and ensure that your next music festival is as fun and stress-free as it should be. (And, if you’re on a budget, be sure to check out all the ways you can save money this festival season, too.)

    But before we jump in, make sure you have your tickets! You can head over to Ticketmaster, or if you waited too long, you can always try your luck on the secondary market. Just beware, ticket prices for in-demand festivals will most likely be inflated way above face value the closer you get to the event.

    Okay, got your tickets? Let’s go!

    Set up Camp

    If you opt to camp on the festival grounds for a multi-day event, be sure to arrive as early as you can to get a primo spot (not too far from the toilets and not too close to the noise of the concerts), and plan to leave late to avoid the rush of the mass exodus on the last day. There are also some key items that will make the experience that much more enjoyable, including a sizable tent to house you and all of your friends comfortably, sleeping bags made for use in warmer weather, camping pads and pillows. These are the two absolute must-haves, though:

    YETI Tundra Haul Hard Cooler

    Why We Love It: A quality cooler will keep food and drinks fresh for days on end, and you don’t get better quality than the legends at YETI. It’s pricey, but definitely worth it as it can stash the equivalent of 45 beer cans (though we suggest providing yourself with more sustenance and nutrition than that) and its wheels make it easy to roll around the grounds. Keep in mind, you’ll also want to pack utensils and other portable kitchen gear to cook whatever you haul with you too.

    The Cost: $400 at YETI.com

    Deal Alert: There seems to always be a free shipping deal running at YETI; check here for the latest coupon code.

    Stansport Reinforced Multi-Purpose Tarp

    Why We Love It: A durable tarp can be used a ton of different ways: to protect your tent from the muddy ground, as an extension of your tent, as a privacy screen for “costume changes” — the possibilities are endless. This one in particular, is made with rip-stop material and double-reinforced corners, so you know it will hold up to any abuse you give it.

    The Cost: $15.97 at Amazon.com

    Stay Hydrated

    Long, hot, sweaty days in the sun mean it’s vital to boost your water intake, so be sure to bring lots of extra water — we’re talking gallon jugs — if you’re camping. Or, if it’s a one-day fest, keep a water bottle with you at all times, if the venue allows it. A hydration multiplier can really help you get through a multi-day fest (especially if you plan on drinking alcohol), and these smart tips to stay hydrated will help you out for your next festival too.

    CamelBak Eddy® + filtered by LifeStraw®

    Why We Love It: Any reusable water bottle will do, but we love that this one has a built-in water filter so you can fill up from any tap or refill station without worry. It holds 20 ounces of water that gets filtered with the power of LifeStraw to remove bacteria, microplastics, chlorine and all the other gross stuff you don’t want in your water, leaving only clean, fresh-tasting water for you to hydrate with.

    The Cost: $45 at CamelBak.com

    Deal Alert: Score 10% off sitewide with code RMN10, and get 1% cash back when you shop CamelBak through RetailMeNot.

    Liquid I.V. Hydration Multiplier

    Why We Love It: Whether you’ve sweat out any semblance of hydration from your body or your alcohol consumption forced you to pee it all out, you’re going to want to rehydrate — and fast. This hydration multiplier contains electrolytes to replenish you, and it fosters rapid absorption of water and nutrients so you can get back to enjoying the music. Just mix a packet of deliciously flavored powder in at least 16 ounces of water and drink up!

    The Cost: From $24.47 at Liquid-IV.com

    Deal Alert: Save 25% sitewide with code FESTIVAL25.

    Throw Yourself Some Shade

    Music festivals tend to be entirely outdoors with little to no relief from the blazing sun above. So, to avoid having to deal with a bad sunburn at best (or nasty sun poisoning, at worst), make sure you keep yourself covered — fashionably, of course. A wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses and UPF clothing are all great options. Beyond that, you’ll still want to slather on a generous helping of sunscreen (and insect repellent!) too.

    Women’s Tempe Sun Hat UPF 50+

    Why We Love It: This stylish hat will keep your face, neck and shoulders (mostly) out of the sun. It’s also made with an Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) of 50+ built in, so you can avoid sunburn on your scalp and forehead, too. Because, yes, the sun’s rays can get through fabric that doesn’t have UPF!

    The Cost: $59 at Coolibar.com

    Deal Alert: Get up to 20% off and free shipping with the latest deal and coupon codes.

    Pick-nic Your Spot

    Any concert guide would be remiss to not point out that all the best music acts are going to have a ton of people hoping to score a prime viewing spot. So, if there’s an act you really want to see, you may need to camp out near the stage hours in advance of their performance time. Fortunately, you can make this a lot more comfortable for you and your friends with some camp chairs, an outdoor blanket and a small, soft-sided cooler to stash some snacks and refreshments, like a mini picnic before the show.

    ALPS Mountaineering Roamer Chair

    Why We Love It: Sit back, relax and wait for the show in this low-profile folding camp chair made of tough steel, durable polyester and a breezy mesh back. It’s relatively lightweight at about six pounds and it comes with a sack and shoulder strap for easy transport to and fro.

    The Cost: $37.46 at Backcountry.com

    Deal Alert: This chair is currently 25% off, and you’ll score 1% cash back when you shop Backcountry through RetailMeNot.

    Listen Up

    Let the sensory overload of your favorite artists’ performances blow your mind, not your eardrums. Prepare for festival loudness by investing in a pair of earplugs that’ll bring down the decibels without compromising the intricacies of the music — and you’ll be thanking us once the bass drops.

    Fender Musician Series Black Ear Plugs

    Why We Love It: This is a good, budget-friendly pair of earplugs that will bring the noise level down an impressive 27 decibels without muffling the sound of the music around you. They’re also cheap enough that you won’t be kicking yourself too much if you drop them and lose ’em to the crowd.

    The Cost: $9.99 at Adorama.com

    Stand out From the Crowd

    Like we said, It can be easy to lose sight of your pals in the massive crowds at music festivals, so each of you should carry something easily identifiable to help you spot each other from afar. Think obscure flags, or even an inflatable mascot on a pole; whatever it is, just make sure it’s relatively unique to your group and that everyone knows what they should be looking for in case they get lost. Also keep in mind that it’s not uncommon for cellular networks to get overloaded, so prepare for festival outages by picking a meeting spot that everyone knows just in case your group gets separated.

    Jungle Safari Animals Inflatables on a Stick

    Why We Love It: Ridiculous as they may seem, this pack of six inflatable animals will be perfect for keeping your whole crew together. They’re colorful and easy to spot in a crowd, and they don’t require a pole or stick that can get unwieldy and dangerous.

    Keep It Clean

    Whether your music festival is one day or one week, there are some key items you’ll want to pack with you. First, if your music festival of choice is known for kicking up dust storms, be sure you’ve got the goods to keep your eyes and lungs protected. (A fun bandana or neck gaiter and a pair of sunglasses or goggles should do the trick.) You’ll also want to stash some durable body wipes in your bag to get cleaned up, especially if colored powder will be thrown around.

    Why We Love It: This resealable pack of extra-thick, pH-balanced wipes is perfect for cleaning up after a long, dusty day at a music festival. They clean, soothe and moisturize with aloe vera and vitamin E, and they’re biodegradable so they’re not too terrible for the environment. (You should still dispose of them properly, of course.)

    Pack It in, Pack It Out

    Don’t be the people that leave a mound of trash behind at their festival campsite, or let their garbage blow around in the breeze. Make sure you bring plenty of garbage bags to keep things neat and tidy, and everyone will be much happier in the long run.

    Most of All, Just Have Fun!

    Planning for a music festival can be a little stressful, but if you do it right (ahem follow this concert guide!), you can relax and be in the moment when the time comes to enjoy the whole experience. Also, don’t bring anything with you that’s too expensive or clothing that’s too uncomfortable. Things will probably get lost or ruined in the commotion of the festivities — it’s inevitable. But if you just try to be flexible, go with the flow, have respect for your fellow festival-goers and keep a friendly, positive attitude, you’re sure to come out the other side with some really fun memories.
