Colortime Recycle shopping tote Review & Giveaway!

I am a big fan of DIY projects and when the things that you need come together in one package it's even better. Especially when it's something reusable like this recycle tote that shows off your passion for recycling. It's great for exposing your kids to the world of recycling as well. What better way to do that than by making it a fun craft activity?

Chobani Yogurt Review. Flavor blast!

Are you a fan of yogurt? I love Yogurt, but only the good stuff. The minimally processed Greek kind. It is minimally processed, low sugar and low fat, with a ton of probiotics in every bite. Probiotics help to keep the good flora in your intestines and are great to replenish you body with when on antibiotics, which kill the good flora. I'm not a fan of the sugary ones that are more sugar than actual yogurt. These reasons are why one of my favorite brands is Chobani, so I'm very happy to review them for you today. I got to try out so many different flavors i'd never tasted before.

DIY Recycled Easter project with Starbucks coffee holder & Annie's pasta box

I wanted to do something cute and fun for Easter, even though I don't really celebrate it. Unless, you count stuffing my face with candy and that's usually after Easter, when the candy is on clearance. None the less, I've always wanted to make something out of recycled art. I collect things left and right all the time expecting i'll use them eventually and the time finally came for these.

Suave Naturals Review & The new Shine Suite with Argan Oils!

I am always looking for the most inexpensive choices in hair care and one of my favorite go to's for certain products has been Suave. Since I was a teen I have purchased from them and really was impressed with the quality for the price. When I couldn't afford the salon conditioners, I would try out their versions and they weren't bad! To this day, I still use their Humectant conditioner. I also enjoy many of their lotions.

Larabar Review

When you have revamped your whole diet to being a lot healthier, it can sometimes be a chore to find the best ingredients to consume. Not to mention, ridiculously expensive. This is where Larabar comes in. They cost me about $1 and some change. They fill me up easily and they are full of all natural and minimal ingredients that you can pronounce.

Healthy Surprise Review & Giveaway!

I get so excited when I find a really good foodie subscription box that meets all my needs. As you know, it can get very expensive trying out new foods that you may end up not liking. Healthy Surprise is another outstanding box that takes the guessing game of "Will I like this...Do I really want to spend the money?"  out of the equation. You no longer have to gamble on the health foods you buy because you can sample them at a much cheaper cost!

Brothers All Natural Fruit Crisps Review

Since I have started my healthy eating regimen, I have been constantly tempted by my evil nemesis-fat. Despite not giving in, I almost dream about it in my sleep. The craving goes away, but it always comes back. I will indulge a little bit so I don't binge later, but It is really nice to have ready to eat sweet snacks on hand that are anything but fatty and full of calories. Brothers all Natural  Fruit Crisps have become that quick go to when I need something to curb the craving and fast.

Shari's Berries Review

My experience with Proflowers has been a wonderful one. In continuation of my journey with them, I bring you Shari's Berries. I couldn't help but order a basket again. Last time it was a fruit basket and this time it's a Tea Time Basket. I also sent my mother over a fruit basket similar to mine and she absolutely loved it. It came at just the right time too, as there was sad news in the household. I was so happy that she had that to brighten up her day.

Gfreely Review & Giveaway!

I have been experimenting with trying a lot of different vegan and gluten free foods over the past 2 years and I have found some great staples I keep using to this day. Then there are the more high calorie foods that are a bit too indulgent.  Amazingly made with clean healthy ingredients, just impossible to lose weight if I consume it. Fortunately, this food gem came before I started a serious healthy eating habit.

OraMD Review

I have been intrigued by a lot of the herbal remedies that have become more mainstream in the past years. Especially for gut and gums as that is where most of my sensitivities lie in. I'd never tried an herbal mouth wash before until I was approached by OraMD.

OraMD's claim is that if you follow their 4 step regimen, the health of your teeth and gums will be greatly improved. I do not have the entire 4 step, just the tincture of oils, but I was told this alone would help a lot as it's the main fighter.

When I first started using the oils on my toothbrush, I put too many drops and really paid for it. That stuff "burned" like I lit a match to my gums. I was told this was the oil working on the bacteria lying in the gums and I believe it. I was also told that to put one drop next time. I did that and the burning was still there, though not nearly as severe. I liked the tingling effect, It made me feel like it was really working. However, I really think the bottle should say start out with 1 drop and see how you feel. It says put 2-5 drops. 

Wantable Review

I love makeup. I cannot express this enough. When I discovered makeup subscription boxes, it was a whole new world for me. I love the surprise element, though it may not always be a good one, the anticipation is fun. I love the unique products I get to try before I buy to save money wasted on something I may not like. Since I have been trying out new subscriptions, I am sure I have saved a ton of money I otherwise would have spent in search of my holy grails. 

Arctic Zero Review

Being a diet or what I like to call healthy eating habit  has its obvious disadvantages. The biggest one I have encountered is not being able to indulge in ice cream. True, I could have small servings here and there, but we all know that doesn't happen when you have a whole pint of that addictive creamy ice dream. Even in a small pint, there is so much fat, calories and sugar in my favorite brands. The light varieties aren't much better. I am also trying to cut down on milk and gluten intake, among other things. This has milk in it from the whey protein, so I wouldn't consume it if you are allergic or sensitive to milk, but otherwise it is very healthy.

Almondina Review

I just started using My fitnesspal and have been doing ViSalus for a while now. I have been eating very healthy and nearly vegetarian, but I still have that sweet craving that I know I had to indulge in a little bit or I will end up splurging later on. This is where Almondina cookies come in very handy!

Schick Hydro Silk. Close Shave, close to perfect.

What to say about this shaver. Well, this beauty came in the nick of time, but that's a horrible choice of words considering there were no nicks in sight with this bad boy. I had a doctor appointment and I literally had 10 minutes to shave before I had to leave to catch my appointment.

Ellie fitness apparel Review

Ellie's February Lookbook
So I'll admit I have been slacking on my healthy eating and exercising transition. Up until about two weeks ago, I was still eating whatever I wanted to or not eating enough at all.

I quit smoking many years ago and never really smoked much when I did, only socially, but I still get that craving. Just the act of smoking used to be soothing to me.

Yves Rocher Anti-Age Global line

I have been on an endless (late) search for anti aging skin care. I say late, because apparently in this day and age I should have known to start worrying when I was 18 lol  I exaggerate, but girls really are a bit too precautionary about aging. I do indeed know 18 yr old's using wrinkle cream as if it will stop time and gravity, before it starts. Not so ladies. It's nice to think about in fairy tale land, but the only thing you can do is moisturize, use sun screen and treat what you already have. Seriously, we are a society much more obsessed with the process of age than a decade ago. At 18, I was not at all consumed with the thought of wrinkles. I was consumed with graduating high school, meeting boys and getting rid of rules, not wrinkles.
