Check out the goodies in this Goodies Box!

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

I received another Goodie Box (You can read my 1st box here
and this one is full of amazing products to sample!
(Though I forgot to take pictures of some of the things so bare with me)

In this box, it contained the following:

Vita Energy Mints by Goviter
Mocha Java Bar by Ona Treats
 Cologne Wipes For Men by Swago
Creamy Peanut Butter by Georgia Grinders
Eczema Body Wash & Shampoo by Natralia
Energy Stick Packs by Volo Vitamins
Pain Relieving Patch by Tiger Balm
100% Natural Ginger Candy by Prince of Peace
Kick Ass Ground Coffee by Kicking Horse Coffee
Hyaluronic DMAE Lift & Firm Cream by Andalou Naturals


From the entire contents of the box, my #1 favorite item was the Hyaluronic DMAE Lift & Firm Cream by Andalou Naturals. This was my favorite because I could really see the product working on my skin!! It helped diminish my fine lines and wrinkles that are starting to creep up, and it helped my skin look very soft and healthy. I mostly put the lotion beneath my eyes as I have been holding the very sleepy look lately lol, and I feel this cream helped improve it a lot. I will have to purchase this for future use!

Next in line came Mocha Java Bar by Ona Treats. This bar was tasty, minus the pieces of cacao nibs I had in it, but overall it was a nice little tasty treat. It contained 45mg of caffeine from locally roasted, organic, fair trade coffee beans, as well as organic nuts, honey, and chocolate. This bar makes for a nice little sweet tooth saver, satisfying that urge for a piece of candy.

The Eczema Body Wash & Shampoo by Natralia came next on my list, as it lathered easily in my loofah sponge and didn't have an overwhelming oatmeal scent. This soap left my skin feeling soft and supple, aiding in itch relief and moisturizing dry skin. I love that it's an all-natural formula and helps manage skin irritation. The easy to use pump bottle makes it great for children to use as well!

I was shocked by the amount of energy the Energy Stick Packs by Volo Vitamins gave me! I received the flavors in citrus and berry. I enjoyed the citrus flavor best. It fueled my workout, and house cleaning extremely well. I feel like this product worked better than coffee does, energy-wise at least :) Plus it contains vitamins?! Sounds like a win! 

100% Natural Ginger Candy by Prince of Peace held a little kick in every bite. These candies are much like taffy, as they are chewy, but meant to be sucked on. You get spicy and sweet in one, with that fresh taste of ginger. They're interesting in taste, but I've noticed they help sore throats feel better which is great for cold and allergy seasons. Plus ginger is really good for upset stomachs! Great little candy overall, especially if you love ginger.

Another kick for your caffeine, the Vita Energy Mints by Goviter were chocked full of fresh mintiness. They were so minty, that the spice of it was overwhelming to my tongue lol. I enjoyed one mint at a time, to experience the energy flow. It was nice to suck on during my workout, so I would not only get a move on easier, but also have fresh minty breath while doing so! I prefer your typical tic tac over these, but they were fun to experience!

Starting to see a theme here...more caffeine! Haha. The Kick Ass Ground Coffee by Kicking Horse Coffee was interesting. I thought the name was pretty clever, making me think the coffee would be extremely strong and give me a huge burst of energy. I'm sad to say, I didn't really like the taste of this coffee. It had a strong chemical like taste, I really just didn't enjoy. I shared this coffee with my mom, and she thought it was great. She enjoyed keeping the bag for herself  :)

I really like peanut butter so when I have the chance to try a new kind, I jump for it. When I received the Creamy Peanut Butter by Georgia Grinders I was just as excited to try it. I found the case it comes in to be very unique and less waste. But it is hard to get the last bits of peanut butter out haha. The flavor of this peanut butter was ok. It isn't very sweet, but it is healthier than a lot of peanut butter's out there. The texture was great, as peanut butter should be. I would love to try chunky next!

 Cologne Wipes For Men by Swago are perfect for on the go smell goods. I like my man smelling nice so these are really cool to have on hand ;) The wipe has a nice scent and is easy to use, just wipe where you want freshened up and you smell like you sprayed on cologne! The small compact size makes it easy for men to carry them in their pocket or wallet. They make nice stocking stuffer items during Christmas time too :)

And last but not least, the Pain Relieving Patch by Tiger Balm. I have always enjoyed using Tiger Balm for my aching muscles and just love the scent. It reminds me of Christmas time. I haven't had a chance to use the patch yet, as I haven't needed to! (knock on wood) But I'm sure I will love it just as I love the balm. Plus I wont get my hands all dirty so that's a plus!

I have once again loved testing out all these products from the Goodie Box. It's so much fun receiving new products to try. If you would like to receive free goodies too, sign up for your own Daily Good Box!

Homemade Ice Cream in The DOWAN Bowl

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

   Sometimes finding the perfect snack bowl is better when you go simple. The DOWAN 10oz Porcelain Bowl is cute and sweet, yet very versatile for what you need. It may be small but I think it is the perfect piece for holding just what you need. Whether that be soup, cereal, fruit, dips, and more...this bowl won't let you down with it's petite stature. 


I just love the DOWAN 10oz bowl. It's the perfect size for ice cream! I made homemade ice cream, or "nice cream" if you will, using frozen bananas, strawberries, and watermelon blended with vanilla yogurt and a tiny bit of water. It came out great! Plus I topped the cream with Fruity Pebbles and Peanuts.You can make all kinds of "nice creams" using frozen bananas and different added in ingredients. A favorite is mixing in cocoa powder with peanuts or peanut butter, such a treat!


 The Dowan 10oz Bowl is made of Made of FDA approved porcelain, that is non-toxic and lead free.
 It is very durable and comes with a 30 day break-and-chip warranty.

Seventh Generation Ultra Power Plus Dishwasher Detergent Packs

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


   I tested Seventh Generation's Ultra Power Plus automatic dishwasher detergent packs and they're keeping my dishes sparkling clean! Each pack contains little pods of detergent, you just pop one into your dishwasher and it does all the dirty work for you. These pods are made with an enzyme-rich formula that can zap away 48hour stuck on food and fight stains with oxygen bleach. They do not contain any chlorine bleach, phosphates, or synthetic fragrances so you can feel good about using them on your dishes!

This was my first time using a Seventh Generation Dishwasher Pod and I liked it! Seems to be pretty effective at getting those dirty dishes clean. Plus it's so easy to use! Just one pod into the soap compartment and it's ready to go. My dishes come out clean every time! Though these pods don't leave behind a fresh scent like other products I have used do. This is good if you don't care about the scent, but I like a clean citrus smell coming from my dishwasher haha. I much rather a product that is healthier for me and my family though. The convenience in every little pod is perfect for needing to run your dishwasher on the go. It saves time and keeps you more organized without mess or thought. Such a great product!



You can find Seventh Generation Ultra Power Plus Dishwasher Detergent Packs available for purchase online or in your local stores. Also be sure to visit seventhgeneration.com for more products and  information!

Extra Space and Place With Songmics Storage Ottoman Bench

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

    Both storage and seating, the Songmics Storage Ottoman Bench Seat makes a decorative piece in your home. The compact size of the bench makes it perfect for any room in the house, as it is versatile in decor and looks great in most locations. It would sit well in entryways as a place to take off your shoes, in bedrooms at the foot of your bed, or in living rooms as a coffee table for the couch...so many ideas! This bench is ideal for storing items, such as blankets, games, shoes, ect.


   The storage bench is sturdy seating, made with thickened CARB P2 MDF construction and can hold up to 660lbs in weight. It's outer exterior is designed with faux leather and has a tufted top with buttons and exquisite stitching for a modern day style. The dimensions of the bench are 43 1/4"L x 14 7/8"W x 14 7/8"H so it works nicely, sitting at a comfortable height to rest your legs. The bench is collapsible and can be kept flat for space saving solutions when needed. This also makes it great to pack when moving, so you could even take it in your RV or dorm room. Definitely a nice piece of furniture for those that move a lot. 


   I really like this set as it is not only an extra piece of storage, but we can use it to sit on, which is especially great when you have company. It is so easy to put together and takes less than 5 minutes! I currently have our bench at the end of our bed, and I like sitting on it, watching the birds through the patio door. I am using it to store blankets in, which comes in really hand since we are apartment dwellers and do not have linen closets here.  The bench seat is a great product and would also make a fantastic gift for those freshly moving into their own place...I definitely recommend it!

The Songmics Storage Ottoman Bench is a beautiful piece of furniture that looks great with modern day decor. You can find this piece available for purchase on Amazon in multiple colors and at an affordable price. Also be sure to check out Songmics Facebook page, as they will be holding weekly giveaways for all their products!!

The Hideaway - Book Review

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


The Hideaway by Lauren K. Denton is a fictional story full of hope, love, and decisions to be made... With the main character as Sara, she leaves her life of New Orleans to return to her home town in Sweet Bay, Alabama, when she learns her grandmother has passed away. Among Sara's return to Sweet Bay, she discovers her grandmother, Mags, had left her The Hideaway B & B. Though it was once a beautiful place, the B & B needed a lot of work and Mags put then renovations in Sara's hands. Sara owned her own Antique Shop in New Orleans, and loved dealing with furniture, but this was a big project for her. She not only had to worry about the B&B, but also the tenants that were still living in it, Mags best friends. Sara decided to stay in the B&B while renovations were being made, and in that time, she began thinking the stay wouldn't be so bad. Things were changing and happiness was being found...including a discovery of an old box that lead to clues about a life Mags had that not many knew about. This lead Sara on a mystery to unwind her past and piece the puzzle together.

I truly loved reading this book. It was one of those stories that keeps you wanting more. I enjoyed meeting the characters, one after another, feeling close to them and understanding how they fit into the mystery. Reading the past of Mags life and the present of Sara's, and how they intertwined together to unfold their story really makes you a part of it all. I love finding a good book and this one has really captured my heart. I was so sad to finish it haha. I definitely recommend this novel to readers out there who love feel good stories with romance and mystery combined.

You can find The Hideaway available for purchase 
on Amazon or on thomasnelson.com for under $20

Improve Your Gut Health with Restore + 20% Off

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


Improve your gut health with Restore, a soil-derived mineral supplement made to fight everyday environmental and food-born factors while providing a good space for the healthy bacteria to flourish. Restore also helps protect your immune system and intestinal walls by nurturing membranes in the gut and blood/brain barrier to work correctly and keep our bodies healthy. It helps rid of the nasty items our insides contain such as junk from processed foods, GMO's, gluten, and herbicides, just to name a few. Restore will help destroy these chemicals and create a stable environment for our guts to give us a better well being.


I wasn't sure what to expect when I began using Restore. I liked the idea of ridding the toxins from my body and cleaning me out to be a healthier version of myself. Upon opening, I noticed that Restore doesn't really have a scent, though it is a yellow color, like that of apple juice. The taste is plain, but when I drank it at room temperature, the liquid made me want to gag lol, so I keep mine in the fridge, though this isn't required. I drink 1tsp at breakfast, lunch, and dinner and take it like a shot in a medicine cup. It's easy to do, but makes it more inconvenient than a pill you take once a day. For the first 3 days, I feel like I noticed a difference in my body, in that of being able to flow easier, which in turn, left me feeling lighter which I loved. But after that 3rd day, I haven't noticed a difference at all. I finished the entire bottle and am not sure if It did anything for me or if I should even notice any changes. It was nice to try and if it did indeed build up my guts for the better, then it was worth it. 

Included in the kit I received was the Restore Sinus Spray. It came at the perfect time, when my allergies were flared up and my nose was desperate for an itch relief. Within minutes of using the spray, my nose felt much more relieved! It helped sooth my nasal passage and clean it of any dust particles that may have been in there. I've only tested it one other time since then, because my allergies haven't been bothering me, but I will definitely be using it again! 

Trying Restore to improve your gut health might be a good option for you. You can get a 20% discount at restore4life.com/try-restore-today/ until July 16, 2017 if you use the code B7X66JY

Restore can be found available for purchase on their website (restore4life.com). in practitioner offices, health food stores, Amazon, and GNC stores nationwide. You can also find more information, pictures and more on their Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, and Instagram

Me: A Compendium - Book Review

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

 Me: A Compendium made by the Wee Society, is a fun fill-in journal made for kids to enjoy jotting their ideas and drawings into. This book is full of colorful illustrations with questions or instructions to follow and answer, opening young minds to be imaginative. It has sections for kids to answer interesting questions about themselves, from as easy as what their hair color is to what they would take to outer space. There are parts for them to draw what they like to do or where they like to go, among other stuff. There is even a secret hiding spot in the book, for them to hold special little papers at. This book has loads of fun throughout it and encourages children to use their minds in fun and exciting ways!

I gifted this book to my son awhile back and he loved it! There was so much for him to get into, writing things down, answering the silly questions as goofy as he could, or just drawing interesting creatures to go with the part. I love how vivid the colors are and that there are page after page of activities to do. It makes for an entertaining read to go back through and see his stories and responses. The book has now become a treasured keepsake so that when he's all grown up, we can look back and be reminded how silly he was!


Me: A Compendium is an excellent book to give children as a gift. It's the perfect rainy day book, or activity to do throughout the summer. You can find this book available on Amazon for under $10.

Baby Mum Mum Rice Rusks Great For Teething!

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

 

Are your teething babies ready to enjoy a mid morning or afternoon snack?


 Baby Mum Mums has a delicious selection of easy to nibble teething rice biscuits. These biscuits are made of premium, gmo free, Japonica Rice, without gluten or dairy and excludes most common allergens including wheat, salt, nuts, eggs, tapioca, and sugars. These biscuits are made with natural products and do not contain any artificial ingredients or preservatives. They are baked to perfection and come ready to eat.


Baby Mum Mums are such a fun little treat to give your teething baby or toddler. I love how soft and edible these crackers are, and that they dissolve easily so your little one can munch on them with ease. There are a handful of great flavors to choose from for a nice variety in snacks, even older children and adults may find these tasty! I have tried each of the flavors: Vegetable, Blueberry & Goji, Sweet Potato & Carrot, Apple & Pumpkin, and Banana. My favorite ones have to be the more fruity kind, top being Banana and second favorite being the Blueberry & Goji. They have a nice natural fruitiness but not overly sweet and has the perfect hint on flavor.


These biscuits are great for a low sweetened healthier munchie and give the perfect introduction of your babies eating snack like foods. I think my only downfall with them is they break easily. Otherwise they are perfect little crackers to start your kids off on! 

    You can find Baby Mum Mum Rice Rusks in a variety of flavors, available in most grocery stores near you. You can also visit mummums.com to find more information and products. As well as find them on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram.

A Pack of 300 Water Balloons Ready For Summer Fun!

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


Need a fun part accessory? 300 Water Balloons waiting for loads of fun!



My first impression of these balloons are that they are powdery, and seem thinner then other water balloons I've experienced, but they hold their fill well and are easy to tie. This is the first bag of water balloons I've seen that have the color black in them, which is pretty exciting, especially for my son as he loves the color black! These balloons are not only for water though! They also work great for party decor! Perfect for those upcoming Summer parties! I used a basketball pump and aired several balloons easily. They are so fun! We plan to make a Water Balloon Sprinkler soon, by adding water to the balloons, tying them closed, and pinning them on a line with clothes pins. Then poking small pin holes in the bottom to allow the water to slowly stream out! This will be so fun! They would also make great ice balls to keep bottled drinks cool in a bucket. This pack of balloons is perfect for all your water balloon needs, and at a terrific price!




You can find this bag of 300 water balloons available for purchase on Amazon for about $8.

I received a complimentary product in exchange for my honest review. All opinions my own.
