Daily Goodie Box November 2018

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


   I received the November 2018 Daily Goodie Box, check it out below, filled with delicious snacks, self care, and more! 

Who doesn't love cereal?!? Are it's not just for breakfast! Sampling Love Grown cereal was as fun as expected. It tasted like Chocolate Pebbles with a harder crunch. My son enjoyed the texture and the flavor, even without milk! It made a great afternoon snack. And can you believe this cereal is made from beans?! A blend of navy, lentil, and garbanzo beans provide this amazing cereal! Who knew!


I have to say, I had high hopes for this drink, but it was disgusting. Orange and coffee flavors just do not mix well. The swizz if the can popping open and the creamy top were divine to experience, but the flavor was not on par with the other senses. I would LOVE to try their other flavors, such as an Oat Milk Latte or Mocha Latte.


I've loved indulging in 2 gummies a day for the added Vitamin C. The flavor is sweet and the texture is just right. It's like eating candy every day, only it's healthy! These gummies are made with organic and natural ingredients, with no gelatin or pectin, seaweed extract is used instead. They provide antioxidants and help repair body tissues, protect cells, fight off infection, and more! 


This product is great for first aid use, but it also helps heal dry, cracked hands and feet, heal insect bites, relieve rashes, sunburns, and other skin irritations. It's perfect for on the go and a definite recommended piece to bring with you on those camping trips! The salve is made of a homeopathic formula to give you a more natural healing and let your body do the work it needs to without added chemicals in the way. I found this product to be soothing to dry fingers when I washed the dishes too many times haha. It's a great product to have on hand and it's really all you need.


I loved these cashew brittle pieces so much! I usually have a difficult time eating normal peanut brittle because of the hardness, so trying these softer pieces was far more enjoyable! They have the perfect flavor and crunch, that kind of softens further once it's in your mouth. These bite sized snacks are made with just 7 ingredients and crafted from a 60 year old family recipe. They're fantastic! 
 

M&M's with personalized words or pictures is such a fun idea for holidays and parties. Most people love these mini chocolates and adding that personalized touch makes it go so much further. You can create yours, all the way from the color to the packaging it arrives in. Adding any photos or words of your choice makes it so much fun! What a great gift!


These bars are a genius idea to provide natural energy in each, using a full cup of antioxidant-rich, fair trade coffee and nutrients to get you through that slump. Unfortunately, I expected this bar to be much better than it actually was. I could taste the coffee and the dates, but it really didn't strike me as a "caramel macchiato" flavor. I didn't find it to give me energy as a cup of coffee would, but it was still fun to try it out. I would be interested in their other flavors!

I love trying out different tea brands and this particular one did not disappoint. Made using a blend of Ceylon and Indian black teas with Italian Bergamot essential oils, it made a nice cup to get me going.  I like that they have a decaf and a caffeinated choice as well, along with many other tea flavors!


A sunscreen that doesn't wear off when you sweat makes for the perfect beach day! With a broad spectrum SPF of 30 and being water and sweat resistant for up to 80 minutes, you can enjoy an hour+ worth of fun in the sun. This sunscreen is made of natural mineral zinc only, it's coral reef friendly, and non greasy. Ready for summer!


It's been another fun month of my Daily Goodies Goodie Box. What product did you like most? If you would love to sample products like those above, check out dailygoodiebox.com and sign up!

Making Knee Holes Cute Again


Do your kids tend to get a lot of knee holes in their jeans? 

   In the warmer seasons, you can always cut the pants off into shorts, but what about for the colder seasons? Or if you just want to keep the pants as...pants? Sewing up the hole, with a patch on the inside (where it can't be seen) then adding on little embellishments can turn your jeans into a fun, new, and wearable style! All it takes is a little bit of imagination and craftiness. I made this cute monster face design using felt! It was so easy and look how cute it came out? The hole is now a little monster face...perfect for a crazy little monster of a boy!
