Hot or Not?! Emergency Lights, Morning Star Farms, & Back to School!

It’s our last week of Hot or Not?! before next week’s giveaway! Today’s edition is VERY HOT, neither one of us has a “not hot” item to share with you so get ready to sizzle! We are featuring a protein packed meal item, back to school supplies, beauty, and some household items that will keep you cool and prepared.

Hot or Not?! is a fun summer series that my sister and I collaborate on. Each week we share 3 items and let you know if they are HOT and worth trying or NOT! Make sure to post comments about your thoughts on our weekly picks and let us know if there are any products out there that you want us to try out this summer! At the end of the series we always giveaway a goodie box of our favorite HOT items so stay tuned for that!

I hope you all have enjoyed our summer series of HOT or Not! I can’t believe that this is our last week.  It is always fun to try new products and let the Kuzak Closet readers know what we think!  My first item for this week is a Black Bean Burger by Morning Star Farms.  These can be found in the freezer section of your grocery store.  At only 110 calories and with 10 grams of protein these are sure to fill you up! I chose to eat mine bun-less with a slice of tomato and avocado on top! I loved how the burgers were seasoned with just the right amount of spice! Next time you are doing your weekly shopping give these a try! Morning Star Farm burgers are HOT!


Back to School is right around the corner and I have slowly been picking up items for my girls that are on their school supply lists.  As many of you know I am a teacher and I always like to pick up a few things for myself before heading back into the classroom.  I recently snagged my favorite pens at Amazon.  They were having a great sale on back to school items and these Paper Mate Flair pens are my favorite pen to correct papers and write notes with! I love the vivid colors and how smooth they go on paper.  Paper Mate Flair Markers are HOT!


The summer heat and humidity can do a number on my hair! I have just the right amount of natural curl that can become annoying when I try styling my hair on these hot sweaty days.  I found this texturing sea salt spray at my local Walgreens and it has become a regular in my morning routine. I know that there are lots of other versions out there but I am loving this Not Your Mother’s brand.  Have any of you tried any of the other products made by this brand?  The Sea Salt Spray is a HOT in my house!

I have 2 of these Eco-Lite flashlights in my house and I love them! One is in the hallway and the other is in the laundry room, they never run out of batteries and so in case of an emergency I can always have one charged and ready to go.  They have a sensor so that they turn on as a nightlight at dusk unless you want to have them set to be on all of the time.


When you grab the flashlight out of the dock the top automatically lights up.  I would highly recommend them if you find you never have light when you need it, these are HOT!



With the summer heatwave that  we’ve had here in Northern California I’ve been on the hunt to replace my vans with more stylish models since I’ve had to have them out more. There is nothing worse than eyesore electrical items! I’ve had a hard time finding something that looks as good as it works so I was happy when this cute Vornado fan delivered a great breeze.  It is cute as a button and comes in 4 vintage colors, I chose basic cream because it would blend in best at my house but the red and green are pretty darn cute! If yours summer has been as HOT as mine has been you need to check this style out!

I’ve been a Secret deodorant fan for years but lately with the long days I’ve been working it just doesn’t cut it.  A client recommended Arrid XX and I thought she was kidding, it’s such an oldie but now I’ve discovered it’s a goodie.  It gives me lasting protection all day long and the fresh scent isn’t overpowering. Another HOT bonus is that is affordable compared to the clinical deodorant I used to buy for $14 a stick. DSC04697

  1. Living in Arizona I am always on the look out for deodorant that will help in this heat. Arrid XXL will have to make it into my cart the next time I am at the store.

  2. Everything in this post is so great! Those flashlights look so handy, the fan looks so much nicer than my nasty box fan, and I’m a sucker for a new pen!

    1. Thank you! The flashlights are the best and I’m so glad I upgraded my fan, it is so much nicer to wake up to than what I had before!
