April 2018 Daily Goodie Box

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

   If you haven't joined in on the fun... Join Daily Goodie Box! 
They send boxes each month, full of amazing things! Below is the box I received for the month of April. It is probably one of my favorite boxes yet...Check out all the fun items I received!


   Cinnamon Snaps Shortbread Cookies by Flathau’s Fine Foods. These cookies were SO good! They had the perfect texture and flavor with just the right amount of crunch. The cookies are very lightweight and their addictive taste will make you want to eat the whole box in one sitting! I wish I had more while writing this up haha. These were my favorite item in this box, because they were that good! Literally like heaven in every bite haha.


   One dose of DayClear Allergy Relief medicine that is said to relieve sneezing, runny nose, watery eyes, itchy nose & throat, and cough for 8hrs a day...  I haven't had the need to use this product yet but it seems like it might be a decent allergy medicine. I am surprised that the entire bottle is one dose. It seems like a lot of liquid to take at one time. I think I would prefer a pill to swallow, over drinking this much of a dose. However, some may find they like it better this way so they don't have to measure or swallow a pill.


   Real Chemistry's Fresh-Start Foaming Cleanser is a soft facial cleanser that removes makeup, impurities, and excess oil. It has a light scent of grapefruit and contains ingredients to hydrate the skin and amino-acids to keep it clean. The cleanser lathers easily and applies to the face nicely. It is easy to wash off and leaves my skin feeling refreshed and softened. I like this one!


   Good Karma's Dairy Free Chocolate Flax-milk was delicious! This was my first time indulging in Flax Milk so I was excited to see what I thought. The bottle of Chocolate Flax Milk contains 0% less sugar than dairy milk with 10g of plant-based protein and 1500mg of Omega-3s making it a healthy drink to enjoy with your morning breakfast, mid-day snacks, on the go, ect. It is a great drink and I really like the flavor! It's creamy and can be enjoyed any time of day. I would love to try their Vanilla flavor next!


    Foods Alive Himalayan Pink Salt  is 100% pure mineral salt derived from the Himalayan Mountain Range that is ground into a fine powder so you can use it to sprinkle on your food, add to water for a touch of minerals in your drink, or sprinkle into your bath for a detox. This salt has a light pink color due to the trace elements and minerals, including energy-rich iron, which is great for the system. I love the sweet pink tone this salt holds, and the naturalness of its flavor. It works great for seasoning!


    Lavender Aromatherapy Dough by Loaf Slime. I was looking forward to the aromatherapy aspect of this slime, but was pretty disappointed that I smelled no Lavender whatsoever. It smelled like a typical plain slime would smell, very dull and glue-like. It was also extremely sticky, making it hard to really play with, without it sticking to literally everything. I really like the idea of aromatheraputic slime, but it needs some ingredient tweaking to make it better.


    4th & Heart Ghee Butter in the flavor of Madagascar Vanilla Bean. I have never had Ghee Butter before, so I wasn't really sure what to expect. I found this butter to be very creamy and shocked that there was no lactose or dairy in it. I could really taste the strong cow-milk taste, but it really lacked the vanilla bean flavor. I tried this product on pancakes, and it was interesting to taste so strongly. I think it's really a product to get use to, but I prefer regular butter. Something I'm really confused by, is on their website, they don't mention what the ingredients are at all, but they claim to be lactose and dairy free, while also claiming to be "grass-fed". I do not understand this concept(???). Overall, it's an ok product I wouldn't buy on my own to use on pancakes, but it might taste excellent in cookies!


    Goodwipes Down There Wipes For Gals is a great product for tucking away in your purse to use on the go when you need a little freshening up. These wipes are hypoallergenic, pH Balanced, Alcohol-free, and Paraben-free so they are great on sensitive areas. You can use them any time of the month, when you want to feel that extra clean sensation! The sample I received is the Shea Coco scent, that is very light and refreshing. It smells great without linger. I love how the wipes feel and the clean effects they leave. They are also 100% flushable and biodegradable. A very good product!


   RawRev Chunky Peanut Butter Chocolate Bar is a delicious snack to take on the go! Filled with fruit, nuts, and seeds, this vegan superfood bar will give you natural energy to go on with your day, while filling your body with excellent nutrients including 5g of plant based protein! It's perfect for those wanting an extra boost when they're feeling munchie. I enjoyed trying this bar, and found it presently filling. I could see myself eating a bar for breakfast with some fruit. Another great product!


   Prince & Spring Fruitmojis Fruit Snacks are fun for both kids and adults! As emojis are the popular thing right now, your kids will love checking out each shape before they eat it. These gummies are made with real fruit juice and contain no artificial flavors, synthetic colors or high fructose corn syrup. They are also certified-gluten free. They taste great and make an excellent lunch box treat or after school snack. My son really enjoyed testing these ones out :)



Once again, I enjoyed trying each of the above products. If you would like to sample products from a Daily Goodie Box, be sure to sign up!!

Beautiful Melamine Dishes with plateshoppe

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

With Summer around the corner, brunches and get-togethers will be happening more often, and having beautiful dishes for your table setting will cheer up the scene, bringing that much more pleasure to your festivities. Melamine dishes are a top choice for outdoor tableware, as they look like a ceramic dish but are made of a hard plastic, making them more durable for the long haul. 

Plateshoppe has many gorgeous designs and sizes of tableware to choose from. Each piece is designed in the U.S.A. by artist: Gail Sarasohn, with beauty and fun intertwined. You can find side plates, dinner plates, mugs, and platters, the perfect piece to complete your collection. Mix and match the designs, or purchase products in a set; there's many to choose from!

I  recently had the chance to review my choice of some of the plateshoppe items, and I chose 4 side plates from the Byzantine Navy Collection, a Platter from the Menu Collection, and a 15oz 'Fill Me Up' coffee mug. I love how dense the mug feels in my hand and that it will hold a nice amount of coffee or tea. The plates and platter are made stable and the design fits perfectly for a Spring or Summer weekend brunch. I especially like that everything is dishwasher safe. This makes for an easy clean up! But they are easy to handwash just as well; with the slick material, everything washes right off, just be sure to use nothing abrasive. I also love that the mug is microwavable so I can keep my drink warm, however, the plates are not. This set will be fun to use on our patio, but will also be used indoors too!


Check out plateshoppe.com to see all the fun and colorful designs. Which one(s) would you like to own? Also be sure to visit @gailsarasohn on Instagram to see the sets in use!
