Today may not be Friday the 13th but it’s still pretty spooky! Today marks the beginning of Halloween weekend and I can’t wait to partake in some ghoulish fun! Don’t have a costume yet? Not to fret, Ms. Fizz—or should I say Morticia Fizz—is here to help!
DIY costumes are a great way to put the green in Halloween! By gathering up items you have sitting around your house, you can make a wide array of wildly creative costumes, while also saving money that would otherwise be spent on store-bought costumes. DIY costumes are also an incredible way to get your kids crafting. They will love the chance to be the creepy co-creator of their freakish frocks!
Here’s my list of 3 items you likely have sitting around your house and ways you canrepurpose them for trick-or-treat preparedness!
- Newspaper: cut newspaper into thin strips and wrap it around you or your little one to transform from a mortal to a

Guess what fizzers? October 22 is “Make a Difference Day!” This is the day when millions of Americans rally together to make a difference in the world. What better time to celebrate the amazing things that you and SodaStream have accomplished!
Last Spring, SodaStream launched the “One to One” campaign where $1 from every purchase was donated to The Water Project, to bring clean water to underserved communities in Africa. What’s truly amazing is that $1 can provide a person with clean water for an entire year! Needless to say your help went a long way! In addition, on World Water Day, SodaStream pledged to donate $0.25 for every Facebook ‘like.’ Through that campaign, you and SodaStream raised $1000. Awesome work guys!
All of this work has made a profound difference in people’s lives! SodaStream and The Water Project recently built 3 wells in…

Hello My forever fizzers! I Hope you had a fabulous week, I sure did! Wednesday I had the chance to attend The Luxury Review in New York City. The Luxury Review is an exclusive press event which showcases the ultimate in luxury goods from cars, to jewelry, to jets and gadgets! As you might imagine, I was thrilled to be there. I often caught myself daydreaming of sipping a pink fizz while riding in a brand-new Lamborghini!
What made the event even better was that a portion of the sales benefit The American Red Cross! Amidst an expo of diamonds and expensive wines, you might wonder what I was doing there (how rude!). All kidding aside, we were there as part of the eco luxury exhibit, demonstrating the ultimate in environmentally-friendly luxury items and boy did they love us! That night, thanks to my…

Shana Tovah! Today is Yom Kippur, the Jewish day of Atonement. Traditionally this day is spent fasting and in prayer. It is the holiest day of the year for Jews. While this holy day is observed through fasting, it is worth noting that all SodaStream Naturals are kosher certified!
On a quirkier note, today is also World Smile Day! In 1963, commercial artist Harvey Ball of Worcester, Massachusetts invented the bright yellow smiley face. His simple yet joyful design has graced everything from stickers, to t-shirts, to take out bags! While delighted that the design was so widely accepted, Harvey feared that over-commercialization might dilute his message of joy and goodwill. Unwilling to let that happen, Harvey got proactive. He declared that the first Friday of October shall be known as World Smile Day. Beginning in 1999 in Harvey’s hometown, World Smile…

Most of us know that October is national Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This time of year is typically flooded with news and invitations for fundraising events, charity walks and information campaigns. In fact, breast cancer is the most funded and researched cancer and receives more public attention than nearly any other health issue. It’s enormous reach is not surprising: it affects 1 in 8 women during their lives.
But with such a flood of information on ways to support the cause, it can be overwhelming and difficult to decide the best place to put your efforts. The most prominent foundation that has given the most money to breast cancer research and treatment for 30 years is Susan G. Komen for the Cure. It was founded in 1982 by Nancy G. Brinker and named after her sister Susan, who lost her fight with breast…
