Kazu Jiaogulan Gynostemma Green Tea

Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own. 


If you're looking for a high quality Green Tea, the Kazu Jiaogulan Gynostemma Green Tea is a great tea to purchase! This tea comes packaged in a box full of 100 individually packed tea bags,
 so you can have a cup a day for months.

The tea brews quickly and tastes just like green tea should. I like to drink it with a little honey, but it tastes fine by itself too. I love the benefits of drinking green tea, and that this one is caffeine free, made free of any sugars, fillers, or additives. It works as an antioxidant and helps relieve stress with each cup. You can brew yourself a cup, inhale the warmth, and enjoy drinking it on the porch in the morning, or from the comfort of your bed or couch. It's a really great tea you can drink daily. And apparently green tea helps support weightloss too! This is something I will have to test. There are many positive benefits to drinking green tea, and it is so easy to brew. Plus it looks nice, each packaged in a gold wrapper. With 100 tea bags in a box, it will last a good amount of time.


You can find Kazu Jiaogulan Gynostemma Green Tea available
 for purchase on Amazon for $12.95 for a pack of 100.

Outdoor Comfort With The AeroBon Inflatable Lounger

Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own. 

 You know when you're out and about, at the beach or the park and want a comfy seat to sit on? With the AeroBon Inflatable Lounger, you can get comfortable seating within seconds! This lightweight outdoor couch comes in a small pack, weighing in at just 1.87lbs so it's easy to take with you, storing in your backpack or purse. Open the package, unroll the products, and begin running to catch some air! Once your lounger is full of air, roll the end and snap the belt shut to keep your couch inflated. Sit and enjoy with comfortable seating at any location!
 
 I really like this product, but I will have to give it a 4.5 out of 5 rating.
 It is a ton of fun but it takes so much to inflate. I had the assumption that it would be easy to inflate since the info says it inflates within seconds, without having to catch the perfect wind flow, AND you can inflate it indoors. Living in an apartment, this was really difficult. You still have to run to catch air in this product, in order for it to inflate. So this was a bit tricky for us. It works MUCH better outdoors. Also, they mention kids can use it as a trampoline. I do not suggest this lol. The lounger moves too much and can really cause some damage if you let your children jump all over it. But they can feel free to bounce on it, while sitting. Even I do that; so much fun! :P

 And last, the information says it can handle the weight of a lion. How much does a lion weigh? A handy Google search says the average weight of a male lion is 420lbs and for a female lion is 280lbs. I guess you have to experiment to see what this lounger will allow before it pops, but the instructions that were included in this kit says it can handle up to 350lbs. We have tried a total of approximately 270lbs and it has been fine. So depending on the weight of each person, up to 3 people can sit on this lounger. 

    The air holds for a good amount of time, with the instructions saying to refill about every 4 hours or as needed. The fabric seems durable and I love that it is waterproof. Though indoors, it appears to attract all the carpet fuzzes lol. Sitting on this lounger is super comfortable, and it even rocks back and forth like a hammock. It gives you the feeling like you're a baby in a rocker, it will really make you sleepy! Or maybe that's just me lol. I really enjoy laying out in this thing, reading a good book or enjoying the scenery. It's perfect for taking to the beach or park, watching the clouds go by and relaxing the day away. And though it can hold up to 3 people, you will want it all to yourself so you better grab one for each family member! 

    You can find the AeroBon Inflatable Lounger available for purchase on Amazon available in three colors: Black, Blue, and Maroon. It comes with a 30 day warranty as well.

Check Out This Funny #ComeClean Video By Maya Rudolph for Seventh Generation


    As a part of Seventh Generation we believe you have the right to know what's in the products we buy, including feminine hygiene products. Tampons and pads do not need fragrances and deodorants to work so why are companies adding chemicals in and not disclosing what is in them? 

Visit seventhgeneration.com/comeclean for more information.
And check out this great video by Maya Rudolph on her talk about getting industries to #ComeClean And it's ok, you can laugh :-)

Trying Out Lightlife Veggie Smart Dogs With #MomsMeet

Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own. 

As a member of Moms Meet, I was able to try out Lightlife Veggie Smart Dogs. These hotdogs are America's #1 meatless hot dog that are plant based and grilled ready, looking exactly like a real hot dog! Only instead of being made with meat, these little guys are made with soy protein and other plant-based ingredients, holding 7 grams of protein and 50 calories per link. They are also certified vegan and Non-GMO Project Verified. So everyone can enjoy a good hotdog bbq!


We had a lot of fun trying out Lightlife Veggie Smart Dogs. They were new for us to try, and though they would have been amazing on the grill, I fried them up on the stove top, to give them that charred look and taste. I was shocked at how much these look like the real meaty hotdogs, although the skin of them felt like an odd rubbery texture and reminded me of playdough lol. The taste wasn't horrible, I actually found them to be pretty decent. Really great for those that choose to not eat meat... Though, I prefer the real deal. I tried the veggie hotdogs topped with ketchup and mayo, but found they were much better disguised in all those pickles and onions. It was a lot of fun trying a new food, and I'm looking forward to trying all the other Lightlife products! 


You can find the Lightlife Veggie Smart Dogs available for purchase in the refrigerated section of your local grocery stores, at a retail price between $2.99-$3.99 a pack. Visit lightlife.com to use their Where To Buy locator to find your nearest store for purchase.

Trying Mott’s New 100% Apple Cherry Juice

Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own. 

As a member of Smiley360, I was able to try Mott's newest 100% juice in the flavor Apple Cherry.
This juice is made from concentrate with added ingredients including 120% DV Vitamin C, with 2 servings of fruit per 8fl oz cup, and it is sugar and gluten free.

I have really enjoyed trying Mott's Apple Cherry Juice! I have always loved Mott's juices but their new Apple Cherry is probably my all time favorite. It has the perfect amount of Cherry taste without having the Apple overpower, and it's great to drink as is or in a smoothie! Plus you get 2 servings of fruit per 8fl. oz. glass, how great is that?!? One thing I find to be an issue with most juices though, is how sweet it is. I found Mott's Cherry juice to be extremely sweet so it needs to be watered down 50/50 anytime it's drank. Which is odd since no sugar is added! I would love to see their future juices to be less sweetened. Overall, this is my new favorite Mott's Juice and one my whole family can enjoy!

You can find Mott's Apple Cherry Juice available in your local Target stores.

Saving Space With SpaceSaver Jumbo Vacuum Storage Bags

 Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own.

    If you are in need of some organizing in your home, maybe gaining more space in your storage closet for your blankets or pillows, or packing away clothes for the next season, the SpaceSaver Premium Jumbo Vacuum Storage Bags would be perfect for you! These storage bags reduce the volume of your materials by 80%! Think of all that extra space you're saving! Plus they keep out any unwanted odors, insects, dirt, dust, water, and mildew so your clothes will be just as they were when you placed them into the bags. The storage bags are available in a range of sizes,. but these Jumbo packs are perfect for storing blankets and pillows...so many options and so much space saved, perfect for every home!


I can't get over how amazing of a creation this is. I remember always seeing commercials for a product like this that shrinks your blankets and clothing so you have more space in your closet, but I was always really skeptical about how it worked. These jumbo bags are just as they say, JUMBO. They are huge! I experimented a little with space saving to see how much I could fit and was pleasantly surprised with the amount. My first time trying the storage bags, I decided to try just two blankets: a comforter and a quilt. But once I got them in the bag, I thought surely it could hold more, so I added another comforter and got to vacuuming. I tried the included pump to suck the air out but this was going to take FOREVER, so I just used our vacuum hose and it was done within seconds. I was amazed at how well this worked! It's just like on TV lol. The only difference was that the edges on mine start to go up, instead of laying flat. Not sure why this is... But then my husband wanted to give it a try. He folded up 8 of his winter coats and placed them in a jumbo bag. Started the vacuuming process and low and behold, a TON of space was saved. This is so great for storing away Summer/Winter clothes when not being used. I am an organize freak, and surprised I haven't gotten this product sooner. I love everything about it, because it allows more room in a closet or storage space, while keeping the same amount of stuff.

 
This is definitely a product I recommend, perfect for organizing, moving, or packing to travel. 
You can find the SpaceSaver Premium Jumbo Vacuum Storage Bags available for purchase on Amazon in a pack of 10 for $35.99 and it comes with a 100% Money Back Guarantee.
