I Only Wanted to Eat My Hotdog in Peace...



   So I was eating a hot dog for lunch, 
and I come across this article from Slate.com...
 
 

      Sausage made with actual poo... As a possible probiotic for human consumption?!? Now I know studies say probiotics are good for the human body, but taking actual infant feces and inserting it into sausage seems a little overkill. But there's a lot that goes into this process... According to ScienceDirect.com, three potential probiotic lactobacilli strains were isolated from infant feces and injected into low-acid fermented sausages. After being thoroughly monitored, only one of those strains were able to grow and make it through the "ripening process". This lead them to believe that sausage made a great carrier for the probiotic strain. 

   But you have to wonder how that would taste! My first instincts tell me, pretty awful, and make me wonder why this was even something that was studied. But according to scientists "All the final products recorded a satisfactory overall sensory quality without any noticeable off-flavour.." oof...

   Would you eat "Nutritionally enhanced fermented sausages" with a little added baby poo, for the healthy probiotics??? 
 
   That's a big no for me.

Daily Goodie Box - July 2021


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

  I love receiving samples to try, testing out new products to see what I like! Check out the fun things I received in July's Daily Goodie Box!
 


Miracle Tree - Moringa Energy Tea - I received the flavor in Orange Passionfruit and it has a nice taste without an overpowering orange to it. I was surprised to see this tea contains more caffeine than a cup of coffee! I only had half a cup and I felt like I had too much coffee lol. Not a good tea for those that are caffeine sensitive, like me, but if you're not, it's a great replacement for coffee or energy drinks. And much healthier too!
 

Home Free Treats - Lemon Burst Cookies. These cookies were delicious! They had a flavor that reminded me of cookies I tried before, but the lemon was much stronger in these. The cookies are so good, and addicting little snack, I definitely recommend!
 

Natrapel® - Lemon Eucalyptus Insect Repellent. A nice smelling mosquito repellent for once! I love the scent, as the lemon and eucalyptus work well together. This spray is good to have on hand to keep those mosquitoes away!


The Grandpa Soap Co - Thylox Acne Treatment Soap. I'm excited about the benefits to using this soap, to help fade acne and lessen blackheads and shrink pores. The name of this soap makes me laugh, because the scent reminds me of a grandpa.... But I will admit, not in a good way. It is actually kind of stinky and the smell lingers. I make sure to wash it off with a scented soap so I'm not smelling that all day. I'm looking forward to seeing how it helps my skin though!
 

Eco Lips - Pure & Simple Lip Balm. Just as it's said to be, a pure and simple lip balm that will keep your lips soft and moisturized. Everything in the ingredients for this lip balm is considered edible, coconut, vanilla, ect.. so it is safe for children to use!

cbdMD - CBD Gummies. These gummies are supposed to help you with stress, to keep you feeling a sense of calm, among other things. I was really looking forward to taking them, to relieve some of my daily stress, but I couldn't take them for long...These gummies ended up giving me daily headaches! I also wasn't fond of their flavor, though each color was different, but they all had an odd taste that stayed in my mouth too long. Unfortunately these gummies are a no-go for me.
 


I've enjoyed testing each product in this months Goodie Box. I think the Lemon Cookies were my favorite!

Customized Hair Care with Function of Beauty Shampoo and Conditioner

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


   The Function of Beauty shampoo smells sooo good! I like that it can be used as is, or you can add in the Hairgoal Booster Shots, depending on which one you want to use. I thought it was cool you could add up to three shots, to cover different areas you would like to tackle. I used Shine, Strengthen, and Deep Condition. Thankfully the boosters didn't change the scent, so the shampoo still smelled great. It lathers well and rubs through the hair nicely, the only thing I wanted to point out (hence the 4 star rating), is that is makes my hair feel like the natural oils are being stripped, and causing it to tangle easier. Because of this, I have to use conditioner every time, but at least it pairs well with their function of Beauty Conditioner! 
 

   Like the Function of Beauty Shampoo, their Conditioner smells sooo good! I use it after every time I wash my hair with their shampoo, to help give me a softer detangled experience. I like that you can use the conditioner as is, or you can add in the Hairgoal Booster Shots for an added benefit. I added in the boosters: Shine, Strengthen, and Deep Condition. I am glad the boosters didn't change the scent of the conditioner, because it already smells so nice. It was easy to apply to my hair and rinsed out better then expected. Function of Beauty makes washing hair that much more fun!
 

      You can find Function of Beauty products available for purchase at Target, in many different options to suit your hair type. As well as the added Hair Booster Shots to customize that perfect set for your hair care.

Golden Girls Mints in a Tin

   Are these not the cutest little Golden Girls items you've ever seen?! Blanches Southern Charm Mints and Back in St Olaf Mints for Rose; each mint is shaped to look like a little slice of cake. Unfortunately they don't taste like cake, but rather a sweet mint that freshens your breath for a couple minutes. 


 I found these mint filled tins at World Market, and I really hope to find Dorothy and Sophia tins soon. They're just adorable! The added quote on each tin makes for some extra fun too. Blanche's says "Keeps your mouth ready for anything." So her right? And Rose's quote says "Enjoy the bold Viking flavor after Geneuckenfluegen Cake." What do you think Dorothy and Sophia's quotes would say? 


   These little mint tins are perfect for any Golden Girls fan. They would be great for Christmas stockings, birthday gift additions, party favors, ect. And once the mints are gone, you can reuse the tins to store other little trinkets or goodies in!

When We Begin Noticing

   
   Have you ever just stopped everything and realized you're living day to day, going through the motions but not really living?? That maybe you're not giving yourself the love and nourishment your body deserves, treating material items better than you treat yourself, 
such as your houseplant or your phone...

 
   If we can focus on the little things inside of us... those little yet really big things... Each breath we take, how we moved from one place to the other, the emotions we've felt to even the smallest details... Really just take time to pay attention to our bodies, maybe we can learn to be truly grateful and really start living this LIFE.
