Bolthouse Farms

I recently had the opportunity to try Bolthouse Farms Juice. I’m a HUGE fan of their juice, which means a lot coming from me since I’m one of those people that normally dislikes food/drinks that are healthy for me. I’ve tried just about all of the flavors of Bolthouse Farms and each is unique and flavorful in it’s own way.  The C-Boost smoothie is one that I consistently buy and a personal favorite of mine.  I not only love it for it’s taste, but it is especially nice when I feel a sickness coming on and stop it in it’s tracks by pumping up my immune systems.  It is really soothing on a sore throat.  An 8-ounce serving of this fruit smoothie provides 1200 percent of your recommended daily vitamin C!  It’s a sweet blend of mango, red apples, and cacerola cherries that are all rich in vitamin C and antioxidants.


I’d have to say my all-time favorite is the Green Goodness fruit smoothie.  I have to admit that the unappetizing shade of green made me think twice about this one, but it’s actually remarkably good!  This is a case of “don’t judge a book by it’s cover” as it has a face only a mother could love. This is a blend of 20 different ingredients including apple, pineapple, banana, broccoli, mango, kiwi and spinach which give it an abundance of Vitamins A, C, B6 and B12.  To me, it is very fruity in taste and the main flavor I pick up on is apple.



I definitely liked the carrot juice.  It has a nice, smooth texture and a sweet, fresh flavor.  If you’re not used to pure vegetable juice, you might not be ready for something like this.  It was, however, a bit sweeter tasting than I expected it to be.  Each bottle contains the juice of 8 carrots, and each serving (there are 2 servings in a bottle ) contain 3 3/4 servings of veggies.  This juice is a great way to adds some vegetables to your daily diet, add a boost to your breakfast, or enjoy it when you are hungry for a snack.  The ingredients were as they should be- one ingredient – 100% carrot juice and no added sugars.  It’s always nice to know what I am getting when drinking a juice like this and can feel good about it having no preservatives and no artificial flavor.  Carrot juice is an excellent source of pro-vitamin A, vitamins C, D, E, K, B1 and B6.

Berry Boost has five different berries with plenty of Vitamins A, C and E.  This juice is very healthy and extremely flavorful.  It combines a sweet and fruity taste with an almost bitter berry,  but the flavors are combined perfectly so it’s not too sweet nor too bitter.  It is very smooth and naturally sweetened…when you are drinking it you don’t even realize how healthy it is.  This smoothie is infused with a lot of antioxidants which are great for you.  If you like berries, you will love this flavor!



These drinks can be a bit pricey to have regularly, but they do go on sale once in a while so I always stock up when they do.  It might not be a replacement for all the nutrients you would get with juicing but they do give you decent nutrients. Compared to the price of a juicer and how many times I would really use it if I get one, I guess $3.99 isn’t bad for all the good stuff that is packed into these bottles of juice with out the cleaning up of a juicer/buying of all the fruits and veggies

EnergyBits

http://mindysmayhemreviewsandmore.blogspot.com/

I am not going to even pretend to masquerade as an expert on nutrition, generally speaking, let alone nutrition and fitness! So, this is a brief synopsis of what EnergyBits has to say about their product:

ENERGYbits® algae tabs are your answer for raw energy and health. All naturally too. With just one calorie per tab, ENERGYbits® will stop your cravings, slay your hunger and give you a steady stream of energy all day or night. They may even make you want to leap over tall buildings in a single bound, but we think that’s best left to the guys in the red capes and blue tights.  Remarkably, our ENERGYbits® have just one ingredient, spirulina algae which is a super hero in the world of super foods. Spirulina’s nutritional pedigree is so impressive that The World Bank, NASA and Olympic athletes have all declared spirulina to be the most nutritious food in the entire world. Why? Well for starters, it effortlessly and naturally boosts your energy like an energy drink, energy bar or coffee  but without the downside of chemicals, caffeine, calories or sugar and gram per gram, there is no denser source of nutrition than spirulina algae. Research done by NASA showed that that 1 kg of spirulina had the nutritional  equivalent of 1000 kg of fruits and vegetables.  That's a  lot of groceries! But if an endorsement by NASA isn’t enough to convince you of the health benefits you’ll get from our ENERGYbits® and spirulina, consider that many International Health Organizations including the United Nations have hailed spirulina as one of the “Greatest Superfoods on Earth.” Don’t worry if you haven’t heard about this super food yet. You will. It may be virtually unknown in America but for the last 50 years, millions worldwide have taken it to improve their energy. Now it’s your turn.   
Best used for: 
   Increasing Energy
   Increasing Endurance
   Increasing Mental Vitality
   High Protein Snack
   Curbing Hunger
   Meal Replacement
   Balancing Blood Sugar
   Lowering Blood Pressure
   Reducing Fatigue 
How to take them:
For best results, swallow at least 30 ENERGYbits® (or more) before any workout, run, game or intense physical or mental activity. They will improve your energy and endurance. Also take whenever you are tired, hungry or don't have time to eat or cook. They are a terrific high protein, low calorie snack or meal on the go.  A favorite of Olympic athletes.Swallow with beverage (or chew them as you would a handful of nuts). Remember, they're "bits" of food (not pills).

Sounds good, right?





I tried one pack before a run. I'm not sure if it was just a placebo effect or if they really worked but, I definitely noticed a difference. I typically have a quick energy packed snack before a run and a shake after. I had my normal snack before and after my run I wasn't hungry and had absolutely no desire to make a shake. I try to run between 3 to 5 miles and i've gotten pretty good at pacing myself so I don'g get tired. Again, i'm not sure if the pills really helped or if it was all in my head but not only did I have more energy and it craved my hungry, but  I ran faster!! Seems like it helped to me! if you're someone who needs extra energy to run, bike, or just had a long night, try EnergyBits for yourself!

Batiste Dry Shampoo

I recently was given the opportunity to review Batiste Dry Shampoo. I'm not one to wash my hair everyday, I actually try and wash my hair every 3 days. Typically shampoo and conditioner is filled with harsh chemicals and toxins that strip your hair of natural oils. The more you wash your hair the quicker your hair will get greasy. I've tried SO many brands of dry shampoos but Batiste is by far one of my favorites! Not only does it work great, but it smells AMAZING! It's light and fresh and gives you the 'I just spent a long while doing my hair' look. HOW COOL?


Dry Shampoo is basically a powder in a spray form that when applied to your hair, absorbs excess grease and dirt that makes your hair look dirty and old. Dry shampoo is also fantastic for chemically processed hair, as washing with regular shampoo and water every day can strip your hair of the color or curls. But you don't want to go a day between regular hair washes looking like you haven't washed your hair. Dry shampoo helps you achieve that freshly washed look, without harming your hair, and protects your color, and saves you a lot of time!
Imagine you have had a long day, and now it's date night! Or maybe it's girl's night out. Who knows. All you know is that you are due to leave the house, yet you've worked hard all day and you need a great refresher to your look. You don't have time for a full shower. No problem. Using a dry shampoo is quick, easy and still lets you look amazing! 
The directions are very easy to follow. You simply spray your hair with the Dry Shampoo a few inches from the roots. Wait a minute, massage into the roots, brush and then style as usual. Quite simple.

John Paul Pets


john paul pet is a company created by john paul dejoria, co-founder of paul mitchell systems. john paul pet provides pet care products with a salon pedigree. they are solution-based products for pets, created to address the most common grooming needs. I’m a big believer in brushing animals teeth and peering into their ears pretty regularly to see if there are any issues. grooming and hygiene practices shouldn’t be just for humans. after all, our pets have teeth, ears, eyes, and so on too! thus, i was very, very excited when they agreed to send me over a (huge!) sampling of their products! with their botanically enriched  brush out foam shampoos, leave in conditioner oatmeal spray, and brush, we can take care of our pets from head to tail – eyes, ears, teeth, paws, and coat.











30 years ago john paul dejoria, co-founder of paul mitchell systems, revolutionized the professional salon industry by banning animal testing for his line of hair products. john paul’s in-depth expertise in hair and skin care formulations also led to research in new standards for pet grooming and hygiene, which led to the creation of john paul pet shampoos, conditioners, sprays, and pet wipes.
john paul pet shampoos and conditioners are ph balanced so they don’t irritate sensitive pet skin, and the entire line is “tested on humans first” to ensure effectiveness and safety for all pets. john paul pet actively supports programs benefiting all animals, including best friends animal society, the morris animal foundation, paws, the california wildlife association, and the humane society of the united states, as well as numerous humane society of america and spca events, pet rescue organizations, and pet charities nationwide.

The Persimmon Tree Tea Company

I am a huge tea drinker! Hot, cold, frozen, I like them all! I never really cared about what kind/brand I was drinking until  I stopped drinking cheap store bought tea and starting drinking loose leaf tea that needed a filter to make. The flavor is so much better! I received the White Peach Tea and the French Vanilla Bean Black tea to try. Both are so good, but my favorite is by far the White Peach Tea! I enjoyed it cold and frozen. Most people typically don't freeze their tea but I love it, especially on a hot summer day! 





The Persimmon Tree does an amazing job at using the best ingredients to make a tea that is truly delicious. They offer a wide variety of teas. 

Black
White
Green
Rooibos
Chaia
Oolong
Pu-erh
Herbal
Blooming




I will definitely be buying more tea from them real soon! The prices are very reasonable, and the teas are out of this world. Tea drinkers, hop on over to The Persimmon Tree and try it for yourself!

Block Island Organics Sunscreen

Block Island Organic Sunscreen is a mineral based sunscreen that gives you the perfect amount of protection. I have never used a mineral based sunscreen, and I must say it honestly makes a huge difference! I've never been a huge sunscreen wearer. I hated how greasy it made me feel and lets face it, i'm a typical girl who likes to get tan and wearing sunscreen doesn't exactly work in my favor. I received SPF 15. How perfect!? It's protecting my skin but still allowing me to get that oh so desired tan I love!




The lotion is super lightweight and absorbs quickly. Considering how much I dislike sunscreen, there's nothing worse for me than putting it on only to have it never fully absorb and make my skin look wet and greasy! Block Island Organics Sunscreen also smells delightful. I recommend Block Island Organic to everyone, especially people who hate sunscreen as much as I do!




Fake Bake 60 Minutes Self-Tan Liquid

The 60 Minutes Self-Tan Liquid is different than any other self tanners on the market. This lets you choose the color intensity by rinsing the product off after a certain period of time: 1 hour for a light golden tan, 2 hours for a slightly darker golden tan, and 3 hours for a dark tan!


I was very intrigued by the product because the tan develops in less than 3 hours, so you can rinse it after this time instead of waiting the usual 8-10 hours. The tan develops quickly, after only 3 hours my skin was a beautiful light golden olive brown. The color does continue to intensify after rinsing, but not by too much.

It's a brown green liquid, dark enough to see where you apply it. I love the scent, but if you dislike coconut... you're out of luck. Speaking of which, it doesn't smell bad after 3 hours and it's time to rinse it away. So there is almost no odor during the tanning process or after rinsing the product!








The application is quick and easy: Spray it directly onto the skin and then rub it with the mitt to apply the product evenly. I recommend that you do it in the bath or standing on an old towel to avoid staining the floor. You can also spray it onto the mitt, then rub it on your skin, but it gives you a lighter tan. Then wait 1, 2, or 3 hours and rinse it with warm water. Don't wash the skin with soap after and don't forget to exfoliate your skin well before applying.




This self tanner is very nice and easy to use, doesn't streak and it's texture is so lightweight that it dries completely in a couple minutes. It gives me a natural-looking tan, which fades evenly in 4-5 days. By the way, I have acne prone skin and this self tanner doesn't cause any breakouts.

If you forget to rinse the product after 3 hours, dont worry! Fake Bake doesn't recommend to leave it longer than 3 hours, but I tested it and the only difference is that the tan is darker. I must say that I am too lazy sometimes to rinse it, but the darker color didn't bother me. In fact, I liked it!

Another detail I like is that the mitt is already included in the box, a super soft pink mitt! However, it doesn't have a plastic liner, which is why they also provide a pair of gloves to be worn under the mitt. I prefer when the mitt has a lining, but the purpose of not lining is to make the mitt more durable and last longer.




The only thing I dislike about this self tanner is that is seems to cling to dry skin more than my favorite self tanners. So the color on my hands is less uniform if i'm not careful, you really need to apply it lightly even if that means your hands are gonna be less tanned than the rest of your body.

The Fake Bake 60 Minutes Self-Tan Liquid is amazing, the lightweight and non sticky texture is so nice and I love the natural-looking tan it gives to my skin! It's so easy to use and it's also a good self-tanner to have on hand when you need a quick fix, I was amazed at how quickly I developed color!

Orabrush

Today I bring you the Ora-brush, yes ladies and gents this is the little tool that could, the seemly obscure yet wonderfully curious personal care object that has taken the inter-web by storm. This is probably the right time to insert that awfully silly bad breath commercial but I'll spare you the pain and just jump right into my review 




In my adventures as a beauty and style blogger, it's only right that once in a while I try out something seemingly strange and completely out of the ordinary...hey, it's a responsibility that comes with the title of blogger. Ora-brush is essentially a tongue cleaner meant to be used as an add on to your daily oral routine. The purpose? To remove food and bacteria buildup on your tongue a place that you may not think about very often and which can lead to the dreaded....bad breath.


Sleek, colorful and ergonomical in design, the little details in the Ora-brush stands out as being a well thought out product. It might not look like much but by itself but once I put it to the test, it was immediate how much more effective the Ora-brush functioned in comparison to my other tongue cleaner.




If you are wondering why your fresh mouth feeling disappears by morning when you go to bed, a tongue cleaner like the Ora-brush might be just what you need in your life.

Ale-8-One

Ale-8-One soft drinks has been bottled in Winchester since 1926 and is the only soft drink invented in Kentucky still in existence.




They sell Ale-8-One in:
Caffeine Free
Diet Ale
and
Regular Ale

Along with Diet and regular cans as well.

I really liked this ginger ale, which is shocking! I've never been a ginger ale drinker, I only drank it when I was sick. So, every time I see ginger ale, I can't help but think of the flu. This ginger ale is so different than any other kind that I have tried and I can't get enough of it! It's a nice soft drink taste and it's not overly carbonated which I like. You can enjoy it at any time of the day, I didn't feel guilty about drinking it with my omelette for brunch.  It's not overly sweet either which is very appealing to me. Nice crisp taste with an almost lemon lime hint to it. I enjoyed drinking Ale-8-One and I hope you try them as well. I know you'll love them as well.

Pasta Chips

Pasta Chips are the freshest take on pasta dough yet. If it weren’t for the name, and me telling you, you’d have no idea these chips are baked pasta dough, not traditional potato chips. Inspired in the hills of Tuscany, every bite of Pasta Chips tastes like a little slice of Italy.




The Mediterranean Sea Salt is the simplest of the flavors, but that doesn’t mean its lacking. Simple, delicious, and perfect.



Spicy Tomato Herb I think was my favorite of them all. It has the ideal balance of spices to create a snack that pops with flavor.



Garlic Olive Oil is my second favorite, but it was a tough call. The Garlic Olive Oil tastes like little crispy pieces of garlic bread. Perfecto!


The Marinara reminds me of lasagna. I dont know what it is and it sounds weird, but its delicious!


Alfredo tastes just like a bowl of my favorite alfredo pasta…only much more convenient.

Real Foods Corn Thins

"Real Foods Pty Ltd is an Australian company producing, marketing and distributing popped-grain crispbreads for the Australian and export markets.
The company was founded in 1980 by Michael Pels, the current owner and Managing Director, and employs 100 people in its manufacturing facility in Sydney, Australia.
Real Foods has experienced rapid growth over the last 12 years since the development and launch of its major product line, Corn Thins, a natural, low-fat crispbread made from popped corn."







GUILT FREE FOODS. I am literally in heaven over these corn thins. They are so incredibly good, and you can feel no guilt after eating them. The calorie and carb count is absolutely amazing. At this exact moment I'm eating the Tasty Cheese flavor. The Nutritional Facts: Serving is 1 slice. Calories per that slice, 28. Total fat .5, total sodium 51mg, and total cars, 5g. I mean come on, this is a perfect snack! 
These Corn thins are by far my new favorite snack. I'm seriously watching my carb intake this year, and every time I go into the pantry, instead of reaching for some chips, I grab a corn thin.






The Flavors they offer
Original
Soy & Linseed 
Multigrain 
Seasame 
Rice Thins 
Honey Soy 
Tasty Cheese (absolute favorite, the bag is almost gone :() 
and 
Sour Cream & Chives 

For Breakfast last week I had a multigrain corn thin with some peanut butter and banana slices. It was so yummy, tasty, and filling. I would totally cut out bread for the next few months and use the corn thins for lunches! I have literally found my favorite snack. 

Here are some more facts about Corn Thins: No preservatives
Less than 10% fat
Gluten & GMO Free
The whole family can enjoy!!

Up Front Foods Granola

So I was excited to receive a week's worth of granola from Upfront Foods a couple weeks ago. I fell in love upon opening the box. First the size is great -- they only sell their product in 1.4 oz bags so that it doesn't go to waste or get stale once you open it.. And it helps with portion control since you're only getting 1/2 cup at a time. Second, their logo is super fun and literal. For someone like myself (and many of you I'm sure) I'm constantly standing in the grocery store looking at the back of the box/can/carton/bag that I'm buying. Not with Upfront Granola though -- everything you need is literally on the front! That's a company that has nothing to hide.





Ok, so on to taste. I was running late the other morning and grabbed a bag for my purse before running out the door. I opened it up easily at a stop light and peered in. At first I was kind of bummed that it wasn't more 'cluster-y' so that I could eat it while driving, but that's probably a good thing :) I did stick my nose in the bag though and the smell was great. A little bit different than any other that I've tried. Think it was the orange peel powder.




After almost 45 minutes of looking at the bag and hearing my stomach growl, I finally got to my destination and dived in. It was definitely some of the best that I've tasted. I love the ingredient list and could definitely taste some of the little 'extras' that you don't find in other granolas. I also like that it had 4g of protein and 16% of my daily dietary fiber.(Organic Whole Grain Oats, Pecans, Almonds, Maple Syrup, Brown Sugar, Flaxseed Meal, Canola Oil, Organic Orange Peel Powder, Sea Salt)

I'm also excited that this company is out of Boca Raton, FL. Being raised in Florida most of my life -- and seeing most healthy foods that I've researched coming out of California, it's nice to have a little FL pride! The final rundown on Upfront Nutty Granola -- it's kosher, all natural, no preservatives or artificial ingredients and it's non-GMO certified. It isn't gluten free though because of it's oats, but it is wheat free.

Glowbug Diapers and Giveaway

About the diaper:

Glow Bug cloth diapers have three sets of rise snaps for a more versatile fit. This diaper will adjust to four sizes instead of the usual three. There are also two sets of crossover waist snaps.
One of my favorite things about Glow Bug diapers is their wide variety of adorable prints. I didn’t get to choose the print that I was sent but it is the ones that I most likely would have chosen. I love owl and bird diapers!


The inside of the Glow Bug has always had internal gussets, but now they have what they call 360 gussets. The idea behind the 360 gusset is to minimize the chance of leaking out of the legs or blowouts up the back.



It also comes with two full-sized microfiber inserts which is great for those of us with heavier wetters. 
There is a sleeve style opening so you don’t have to unstuff the diaper before washing. If you choose, there is a snap on the front flap so you can snap the insert into place. The openings have flaps of PUL on them to cover up the inserts so you won’t have to worry about microfiber touching your baby’s bare skin, which can potentially cause irritation and rashes. 


Where are Glow Bug Cloth Diapers made?
​Glow Bug Cloth Diapers are proudly made in China.  How can we say this?  Our diapers are made in our own facility, by our employees who are paid fair wages, who work in good conditions and who are extremely skilled resulting in a high quality product that is ethically made.
Ms. Shen and Ms. Han lead our sewing teams, Ms. Bao and Ms. Xu are in charge of the snap work, and Mr. Liu and his team make sure all the fabrics are cut. Our amazing production manager Hillary Ling makes sure all our teams work seamlessly together to create your Glow Bug Cloth Diapers.




I love all of the print choices that Glow Bug has to offer and they’re really affordable, too. For the price you really can’t beat them.
My one wish would be for Glow Bug to sell individual diapers, but if you need to start or pad a stash they are a nice option. You can buy packages of twelve diapers for just $150.00. That’s just $12.50 per diaper and for that price, these really are very nice. If you don’t need twelve, you can order six for $70.00. You may purchase directly from Glow Bug or you can purchase locally from several direct sellers
Feel free to follow them on Facebook and Twitter for news on new releases, sales, and giveaways.

Mint-X Trash Bags

There is nothing worse than taking out the trash after dinner and waking up the next day to see rodents got a hold of the trash bags making a ginormous  mess! Mint-x Trash Bags are the key to making your trash bags rodent free!

Apparently the mint scent is extremely irritating to rodents, yet appealing and refreshing to humans. The Mint-X Trash Bags is the world’s only EPA approved and patented trash bag that will repel raccoons, rats, and other rodents yet remain perfectly safe for human handling.


So, if trash at the house you work at is often foraged through by raccoons, skunks, and rodents and it disgusts you as much as me, I highly recommend purchasing a box of Mint-X Trash Bags. It works!

Foxers


That's right they are called FOXERS - designed by April Spring. April wore soft cotton boxers on warm evenings as loungewear and just loved how soft the waistbands were on them. Not only were they comfortable but there was just something very sexy about a woman borrowing just the right item from her beau's closet. (Think Sienna Miller painting in the movie Alfie) April having studied fashion illustration in Asia and previous work experience at Saks, took it upon herself in late 2006 to create the perfect girly version of the boxer - FOXERS.




I received is the Light grey stripe/White lace boxer ($32). Let me tell you these are just adorable!! They are the prettiest light blue lace boxers you've ever seen. Not only are these so adorable but they are SOOOOO comfortable! These "foxers" are made from 90% Nylon and 10% Spandex Lace which make them ultra soft and comfy. The waistband is made from 100% cotton making them just perfect to lounge around in. These are so comfy to wear as undies and I just love them to lounge in and wear to bed. They are so comfy to wear but you still feel super girly in a boxer!





I am LOVING my new FOXERS and can't wait to purchase a few more pairs. There are so many adorable styles and colors to choose from. FOXERS not only offers all of their adorable Panties but they also offer you things like Bralettes and Camisoles, Tops, Leggings and a few men's items as well.

Sashka Bracelets

These are beautiful!  Each bracelet is handmade by a skilled artisan in the Kathmandu Valley in Nepal. These are very well made and are the perfect addition to any outfit. They come in a variety of colors, you can easily find one for every outfit! The are one size fits all and slid easily over my hand.





The bracelets are made as part of the Fair Trade Organization. A portion of each sale goes towards helping this organization. Per the Sashka Co website this is what purchasing the bracelets benefits:
A Living Wage
The fair trade pricing system enables workers to receive a livable income that covers their basic needs, which include food, shelter, education, and health care for their families. Fair Traders pay producers promptly and, if necessary, help them with access to pre-production financing.
Long Term Investment
Fair trade is about building direct, long-term and stable relationships between importers and producers. Long term contracts are a key component of Fair Trade because they provide artisans with consistent work and job security.
Environmental Sustainability
Fair trade actively encourages environmentally friendly production by promoting the use of local and recycled materials, sustainable techniques and organic practices. Fair trade farmers are required to implement integrated crop management and are given price incentives as well as ongoing trainings, to help facilitate their transition to organic farming.
Empowerment for Women
Fair trade provides employment without discrimination and ensures equal pay for equal work for both women and men. According to the Fair Trade Federation, 70% of fair trade artisans are women who are often the sole wage earners in their homes. Fair trade not only allows women to earn an income, while attending to their daily tasks, but also provides them with leadership positions and an equal voice in decision making.
Safe and Healthy Working Conditions
Fair trade means a safe and healthy working environment for artisans and farmers and no forced or exploitive child labor.
Transparent Trade Terms
Fair trade ensures transparent trade terms throughout the supply chain. Finances, management policies and business practices of businesses engaged in fair trade are transparent.



I’m going to be ordering more bracelets not only for myself, but I think they could make great gifts! The $12 price tag is perfect! The shipping is reasonable too($3.50) and quick! The bracelets come packaged in little mesh bags which are great for storing!
