Goodboy Organics With Giveaway

Just to warn you: This snack is so addicting. I cannot open the bag and walk away! Well, I force myself to walk away but it’s hard. In fact I’m writing this while munching on some Organicasaurus puffs. For research purposes… I think these are perfect for snacking on a Saturday, lounging and watching a movie, or to throw in the lunchbox for a fun pick me up during the school day. Organicasaurus is the only certified organic cheese puff in America! Awesome right?! To hold that title our Dinosaurs have to make a trip.These yummy guys are baked fresh in Slovakia. International Dinosaurs are the best!They are made without artificial colors, ingredients and preservatives. Organicasaurus puffs are just the right combination of cheesy (real cheese none of that processed garbage), sweet, and salty. The Organicasaurus comes in 3 delicious flavors: Cheddar Cheese, Sea Salty, and Tangy Tomato. If you are looking for a healthy NonGMO alternative to those other cheese puffs, pick up some Organicasau…

Jimmy's Sticky Jerky

Image
What stood out the most to me was the accuracy of the product's name. It's gooey, flavor- packed chunks of heaven easily live up to the title of "sticky", packing a piquant punch that is irresistible to any meat-lover. The tough outer texture of the beef coincide perfectly with the flavor gushing inside. So, unable to hold myself back, I tore off another chunk, this time a little smaller. and enjoyed the zesty bite of black pepper mixed with the sweet flavor of the beef. The temptation to completely ignore the social norm of eating in portions nearly overcame me, but the knowledge of a long work day ahead persuaded me to savor the moments I shared with Jimmy's Sticky Jerky

With 30g of protein in one 2.5oz bag, and low amounts of sodium, this delectable delicacy makes for a fantastic snack before a workout or just to serve as a quick sustenance for a long day. Its portability makes it a perfect choice for road trips, bringing to school, work, or any other even on…

I have a delicious review and giveaway for you guys this evening. This one is from Trixi’s Treasures. Have you heard of them?

Finding snacks that are delicious, not filled with things I would rather not eat, and not loaded with a million calories can be hard sometimes.

Primal Spirits Vegetarian Jerky

Image
Primal Strips by Primal Spirit Foods are 100% vegan, meatless single-serve jerky strips that take the fear out of jerky. No gross animal bits in these guys! Primal Strips are all-natural, low fat and made with non-GMO soy beans. They have 10 grams of protein per serving and zero cholesterol. I was recently sent a sample pack for review in each of their 6 flavors.                                                    Hickory Smoke, Hot & Spicy, and Texas BBQ.
Mesquite Lime, Thai Peanut, and Teriyaki.
All of the flavors were good, but I’d say my favorites were the Hickory Smoked and Texas BBQ. Primal Strips make a great mid-day snack when you’re craving a little protein and want to grab something fast and easy. You could even warm a few of ‘em up and make a seitan sandwich.

Lina Zeenie Doll

Image
Have you been in the doll isle lately? I had to go this weekend to pick up a last minute gift for my cousin and there was not just one isle but three…Three! I was beyond lost as I stumbled up and down three isles of dolls trying to pick out the perfect one. What qualifies a doll to be picked? Style? Current trends? Prices? Educational qualities? Durability? What about environmentally friendly?  You are probably careful when picking out toys to make sure that they aren’t going to pose a choking hazard or other common safety issues, but do you read the label of what your child’s toy is made from? Do you check for synthetic chemicals and heavy metals? This is one of the many reasons I love the Zeenie Dollz. They are an eco-friendly line of 12″ dolls made entirely from recyclable materials. They are a plastic #1 (1, 2,4 and 5 are considered safe and eco-friendly). Even the packaging is made of biodegradable plastic material. Each eco-warrior fashionista has 12 ball joints making them more…

Candle Warmers and City Creek Candles With Giveaway

Image
When people enter my home, I like for it to be inviting. This not only means in the way I decorate and clean it, but also the way it smells. That's why I love the idea of candles, but am not wild about the open flame due to safety with little ones around. Thankfully, there are warmers out there like those from Candle Warmers, Etc. that will give the yummy scents of a candle without the safety concerns.





Founded in 2001, the idea behind Candle Warmers, Etc was conceived when it was realized that there should be a different method used to release fragrance from a candle. Over the years this company has continued to grow, recently ranking them by Inc. 500 as the 57th fastest growing consumer product's company in the US. Offering candle warming appliances and other related giftware appliances and accessories to accent and frangrance the home, Candle Warmers Etc. also domestically manufactures and distributes candles under the Jamie Clair brand of hand-poured, scented candles bringin…

Tidy Tots Potty Chair Liners and Giveaway

Image
Tidy Tots Potty Chair Liners have a universal fit to go with almost any potty. Along with the bags there are absorbent pads that you stick inside to absorb any liquids. If your child goes number one then you can use the liner 2-3 times before tossing, the super absorbent pad can hold a lot. When your child is finished you just pull the side ties up on the bag, twist a knot and toss it into the trash. This is a great idea, especially if you're a mom on the go, on a long trip or just hate dealing with dumping that potty chair cup out. These are more sanitary than a public restroom, more hygienic at home because you don't have to constantly wash out the dirty potty cup and Tidy Tots Liners are just plain simple to use.

Shavewell Fog Free Mirror and Giveaway

Image
I recently received the Shavewell Fog Free Mirror. On the first try, I turned on the shower, and within seconds, the mirror was foggy.

Well, just as i expected. So, I grabbed the package and was about to make a phone call when i noticed a paper in the box. I pulled it out and there were directions. Directions? It's a mirror.. how hard can it be?





Well, apparently you have to "charge" the mirror every time you use it!

The next time I showered I took the mirror off the wall and held it under the water for a few seconds and put it back onto the wall. Sure enough, it worked! Once the mirror and water are the same temperature it really is a fog free mirror!



One of my readers is going to win their very own Fog Free Mirror!

Natural Organic Edible Cosmetics

I recently had the pleasure of testing out some of Natural Organic Edible Cosmetics products. I received the natural rice hydrating mask, mango nutritive daily revival cream, and the raspberry soy milk body lotion. I love, love, love all three of these products!

Freshly Picked Moccasins and Giveaway

Let me start by saying that i love small businesses and like to support them whenever i get a chance. Susan Peterson, who runs Freshly Picked, has two kids and with her team, makes each pair of moccasins by hand out of her home in Utah. She is constantly working on improving her products and making sure they are "durable, well-designed" and stay on little's feet; and i love that she is a mom and uses her son as a tester. She even has a video on her blog where she encourages entrepreneurs to follow their dreams and conveys how she balances her life as a mother and a business owner. Knowing a bit of her story makes me love this company even more, and makes me want to support other companies like this.
My moccasins came in soft envelope, inside a cute little bag with the Freshly Picked logo on it. I wish i took a pic but i was too excited to see the moccasins! They are really well made soft-soled shoes. I like that there are different pieces stitched together so that when yo…

These Oregon Tilth certified organic foods have been grown on farms that have not used artificial fertilizers or pesticides for three or more years. Here goes nothing.. I went for what's the most safe first, the Pretzel Rods! Dang! They were delicious.. these pretzels are made of organic unbleached wheat flour, organic rye flour, organic brown rice syrup, organic sunflower oil, organic barley malt, did i mention they were organic? With all those organic ingredients there is no way i would've known anything was different had i not read the package, they are that good! I …
