My Review

First and foremost, the scent is perfect. I could be totally ecstatic about a product but if it smells bad chances are I wont be using that product again. This particular mud mask has a citrus herb scent to it and its just lovely. It reminds me of summer time. The scent isn't too heavy or too faint. The Lemon and Lavender essential oils gave me such a calm relaxed vibe. It is the right amount of sweet smelling goodness.

The texture is kind of the downfall for me. It is pretty "watered" down. Normally when I use mud masks I like them to be a litter thicker so that I can get a good amount on my face and it isn't running down my face. BUT with all of that being said I had to remind myself that this product is packed with 100% organic ingredients. That alone can change up the chemistry for any organic product that you use or eat. Pretty much what I am trying to say is that I will take the runny mud mask because I know everything in it is healthy for my skin. 

The directions say to leave the mask on for 10 minutes or until it is dry but my mask never really dried up like normal mud masks. This didnt really bother me though because I could tell that it was working good by the tingly sensations being sent through my face. I dont know about you but I LOVE face masks that have that "tingly" compound to it. It just makes me feel like its really working. 

The masks wipes off SO easily. I loved that part!! I've used face masks in the past that i would just continue scrubbing and scrubbing and scrubbing and scrubbing and scrubbing and scrubbing to get it off. Needless to say with all that scrubbing going on my face was left feeling really raw and looking very red. Oh yeah and hours later someone mentions that I have something on my chin (leftover mask yuckiness). ANYWAY, this product is NOTHING LIKE THAT! It comes off easily, quickly, its not messy at all, and I had no left over yuckiness going on!

Afterwards my face felt AMAZING!! It was extremely soft. I literally didn't even have to put any face lotion on because it felt so hydrated and moisturized. I felt like I had brand new skin! I was going up to people telling them to just feel my face because it was so smooth I just had to tell everyone about it. They didn't seem to think it was that fascinating but I did!


My Rating 
5 star rating. 1 being the worst and 5 being the best.



I would rate this product at a 4.
 The only reason I would rate this product a 4 is because of how "watery" the product was. With that being said, I absolutely love ALL of the ingredients in this skin care product that it totally makes up for the "thin texture" that it has. This is solely based off of my own opinion. I can be pretty picky when it comes to skincare products.

My Review


I have been wanting to try out a veggie spiralizer for months now and I am so glad that I was able to review this product.  I felt like a little giddy girl on Christmas Eve the first, second, and even third time I used this product! There is just so many different things I can make with it and I can get really creative with what I make (which I love). Also, the fact that it is super quick and easy to use definitely makes me love it even more!  If I am in a rush to eat I can use the spiralizer quickly and I can eat my veggies raw! So I don't even have to cook any of the veggies/fruit that I use. So that cuts out any cooking time. So easy and so simple!

I would rate this product a 3 out of 5. The only reason I am rating it a 3 is because when I received the product it already had 2 blades inserted in it. I couldn't get them out and my husband had to get one out for me and he cut himself in the process. So I have 2 different blades in it right now but those 2 blades are the only ones that I can use because I can't get them out. They are too hard to get out and I feel like I will definitely cut myself. I really wish they would have made it simple to switch the blades. That is the only downfall with this product. 

I love using my Prefer Green Veggie Spiralizer when I am making my Quinoa Bowls because I love having all sorts of different textures mixed into it. My most recent Quinoa Bowl was super yum!! I ended up using the spiralizer for my zucchini. 


I grabbed a zucchini, bowl, knife, and handy dandy Prefer Green Spiralizer.





I cut off the one end of the zucchini. I knew that I wasn't going to use the whole zucchini that is why I only cut off the one end. 



I placed the zucchini into the spiralizer. I held it in one hand, pushed the zucchini down and twisted counter clockwise (it shouldn't matter which way you twist it). 


This is what my zucchini looked like after using the Spiralizer.



 The beautiful zucchini all cut up perfectly.


I didn't cook the zucchini at all. I ate it raw and I took one tablespoon of almond butter popped it in the microwave for a few seconds to get it to become a little runny. I then poured it over top of the zucchini and that was zucchini seasoning! It might not sound good, but oh by its delectable. 



I then put all of my Quinoa bowl ingredients together. 





It tasted absolutely amazing!!! 

So go and grab one today on Amazon.
 It is on sale for $10.99 right now too!!

Wanna know whats great to have when your on a diet??


OmniGreen Labs Dietary Fiber Supplement


For anyone on a diet or for anyone in general FIBER is a must to have in your daily diet. Did you know that most Americans don't even come close to having enough fiber in their daily lives?  The normal amount of fiber we should be taking in is based off of how many calories we eat a day. For every 1000 calories we have we should be digesting 14 grams of fiber. For example, if you are eating 2000 calories a day then you should be consuming 28 grams of fiber daily. 
How many grams of fiber a day are you consuming?? If you aren't sure then chances are you aren't getting the proper daily amount of fiber in your diet. 




Health Perks of Fiber


Normalizes your bowel movements. Fiber helps to increase the weight and size of your stool. It can help runny stools by absorbing water and adding bulk to the stool. It can help hard bulky stools by making it easier to pass.

Lowers cholesterol levels. Soluble Fiber can help lower blood cholesterol levels by lowering low-density lipoprotein..which is bad cholesterol levels. Studies have also shown that there might be a link to other heart health benefits. Like reducing inflammation and blood pressure.

Helps maintain your bowel health. Who doesn't like to have a normal regular bowel schedule? I know I do. Having a high fiber diet may also help lower your risk of getting hemorrhoids and small pouches in your colon. Just for those reasons alone I am all about eating a high fiber diet!

Helps control blood sugar levels. Soluble fiber can help slow down the absorption of sugar and help improve improve blood sugar levels. 

Can help you achieve a healthy weight. Eating high fiber foods is a win-win for anyone on a diet. These types of foods normally make you feel full and feel satisfied longer than other foods. They also can take longer to consume and have fewer calories for the same volume of food. 




Facts about this supplement:


If you are new with taking a fiber supplement then you should always start off slow. If you jump into taking a large amount right away you could be dealing with gas, bloating, cramping, etc. So start off slow!! You know your body up the anty as soon as you feel comfortable enough to.

This product only uses ALL NATURAL INGREDIENTS!! Let me say that again, ALL NATURAL INGREDIENTS!! Which is literally one ingredients. Natural Wheat Dextrin. 
Natural Wheat Dextrin- A versatile product that is primarily used in the textile, adhesive and food industries, and as a dietary fiber to improve digestion. It is used globally and has many commercial uses, along with various health benefits. 

This product is Gluten Free. Yes I know it can be confusing since it is made from natural WHEAT dextrin, but wheat dextrin is gluten free when it is made from potato, corn, arrowroot, tapioca, or rice. 

Sugar-free.

Each Serving provides 16% of your daily fiber intake. 

This product will dissolve completely in water and is a non-thickening formula.

Flavor and Scent free! (To me that is one of the best benefits from this product.)

This product is made in a FDA approved and c-GMP Certified Facility. 

The average customer reviews for this product on Amazon is an awesome 5 star rating. That alone speaks volumes about this product.


Serving Sizes


Before 4 years- Consult a healthcare professional before deciding

4-11 years- 1 spoonful (4 grams) once daily

12 years to an adult- 1 spoonful (4 grams) twice daily


Directions:


Stir one spoonful into at least 1/2 cup of any beverage or soft food (hot or cold). Stir well until dissolved. Not recommend for carbonated beverages. 

My Personal Review

I have been in need of more fiber in my diet and that is exactly what I found with this product! I am super happy that I am getting close to my daily fiber goal. I have been trying to lay off any products that contain gluten so this product screamed out my name when it said gluten free. 

I have tried other fiber products before and I was kind of weary about trying this product because I had been kind of scarred from that scene. Any fiber product that I have tried in the past were not too nice to mix up with any kind of liquid because it would become thick, clumpy, and yucky.  This fiber was the exact opposite of that. I am proud to say that I am now "un-scarred" from fiber products. :)  

Did I mention there is ZERO smell or ZERO bad after taste. It is 100% odorless and tasteless. So it is perfect for anyone that has to give fiber to their children or to anyone that needs/wants to take fiber on a daily basis. 

I did try this product with just plain water which wasn't horrible at all, but I definitely prefer mixing it up in my daily protein shake. It mixes up very smoothly..no weird texture going on with this fiber powder.

When I make it with my protein shake I add one scoop of protein powder, one scoop of my protein powder, a little bit of water, 3-4 ice cubes and one banana. It is 100% delicious!!!! 




Pure yummy goodness!!!

You can head over to Amazon to check it out for yourself! 
Price: 5.99 (which isn't a bad price!)

My Review





I always love using different types of exercise "props" so I am not surprised that I love these Resistance Bands. I would rate this product a 10 out of 10.

I personally never used this kind of Resistance Band before but now that I have I am wondering why I have never tried them out before?!? They are seriously amazing. I love when I am working out and whatever I am doing or using I can actually feel a difference in what I am doing/using (aka feeling the burn). This product does exactly that. After a few reps I can really begin to feel the burn and tell that I am getting an awesome workout in. 

I normally workout 6 days a week Tabata style. I have definitely added these bad boys into my Tabata routine.  I do cardio, I lift weights, I use dumbbells, I use a pilates ring, but nothing compares to these awesome resistance bands when it comes to working out my lower body. :)

I love the fact that this product is so simple and easy to use that literally anyone can use them. There is zero complicating factors in this product. 

I am a huge fan of keeping my stuff organized and trying to keep things clean. This product comes with a great carrying case!I can put everything away in the small bag when I am done using it so then my house doesn't look a mess or look too cluttered. (That is a huge bonus for me!) 

I would highly recommend everyone have a set of these resistance bands. They are perfect for everyone and anyone. I truly believe even a huge macho man could get some good use out of this product.

Become Eco-Smart one step at a time!!!


Icosa Living Eco-Smart Premium Glass Straws Set

Full set of 6 handcrafted glass straws

Includes 1 nylon cleaning brush

Comes in a premium gift box

9" length, 9.5 mm diameter

Non-toxic

BPA Free

Made from 100% borosilicate glass




What is the big deal about glass straws?

How many times in your life time have you thrown away plastic straws? Let me make a wild guess...too many to count. I can 100% relate. 
These glass straws are kind of a big deal (especially if you consider yourself an environment friendly person). You can literally reuse these straws over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again..I am hoping you get the point! Instead of constantly throwing away straws you will 1.save money! 2.slowly but surely save the environment! It is a win-win for everyone. 

Why would you want Eco-Smart Glass straws?



Eco-Smart Glass Straws are 100% perfect for ANY occasion.

 They are extremely classy looking for a party with your chic friends.

 They are perfect for kids because come on, what kid doesn't love straws?!

You can reuse them! So no more buying straws!!

Awesome Housewarming Gift

They are 100% BPA free.





What you can use them with:


Hot or Cold Beverages!

Smoothies

Milk Shakes

Protein Shakes

Lemonade

Soda

Hot Chocolate

Fruit Juice

Cocktails

Cappuccinos 

Etc, etc, etc.



Where can I find these awesome straws?

You can purchase them on Amazon
They are currently on sale for $12.99. 
They are well worth $12.99 because once you purchase these bad boys you won't need to buy anymore straws again! Unless you want to purchase more for your friends and family!


My Personal Review

I give this a 10 out of 10 star rating. 



I am in awe of these glass straws! I am not the only person that is either. My hubby and my step son also think that they are pretty neat! (Especially my step son..he wanted to use one constantly!) So if you have any kids..I would definitely purchase these!!

Reasons why I love these straws:

Kid friendly. If you know a kid that doesn't love to use straws then pigs must be flying because I have yet to meet one that doesn't like them. 

Reusable. I don't have to buy anymore straws! :) That alone is pretty sweet in my book.

They look awesome! They add lots of character to my kitchen. They are so simple, but so attractive. 

Easy to clean. The cleaning brush that comes with these straws is amazing! It cleans the straws out perfectly. I always hated keeping those plastic straws that weren't meant to be thrown away because I could rewash them, but I could never 100% clean them the way that I know they were 100% clean. Then after a while I'd have to throw them away anyway because some kind of weird funk was attached to them that I couldn't get rid of. Zero funk with these glass straws!! This is actually one of the top reasons this product won me over so quickly.

Easy to use. I made an extremely thick milkshake and guess what? I had zero problems sucking it up with my straw! Normally with a plastic straw I would be trying to get the milkshake up and would be left feeling lightheaded and my straw would end up squashing together instead. Then I'd have to throw the straw away and use a spoon to eat my milkshake. THIS STRAW PASSED THE THICK MILKSHAKE TEST! So yeah, I am never going back..just saying!!



Cocktails. Yes, you really do feel superior drinking a cocktail from a glass straw. That is all that I will say.

Great for small or big cups!





I would highly recommend this product to anyone because they can be used all the time for any occasion!
