I haven't had a chance to try this yet but it sounds delicious and can't wait!



This is a great drink mix to have while you are working out that supports optimal cardiac and muscle performance.  I had the Mandarin Orange flavor and it was refreshing!
I am already a huge fan of the Numi brand but I haven't tried this flavor yet so I was really excited to see this in the box!





These are the perfect snack and so yummy!  Another repurchase for me!

I love that they include lifestyle products as well.  You know how I love to try out skincare products and this was one I have never heard before.  I was really impressed that it kept my skin hydrated all day & night!


I have to admit I was a little skeptical about trying this one but I am so glad I did!  It was actually really good and it's a perfect, healthy afternoon pick-me-up.



Of course this was by far my most favorite!  This "cookie" was so yummy and I love that you can eat it for breakfast and not feel guilty.  Repurchase for sure!


I know these are supposed to be for kids but I ate them and I loved'em!  Don't judge...lol!



This is another favorite and another product I plan to repurchase!  This Fig Bar was soft, chewy and delish and a perfect mid-day snack.

Evfalia Organic Vitamin C Serum-Review



By now everyone should have a pretty good grasp on Vitamin C Serum and how awesome it is.  The key is picking out the right Vitamin C Serum that will work for you.
This Organic Vitamin C Serum that Evfalia sent me is a perfect example of what you should be looking for.  First of all, it contains the highest form of active, bio-available Vitamin C at 20% which is obviously the most important ingredient!  However, what makes this Vitamin C Serum a great option is that it includes other key ingredients like Botanical Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E, Organic Aloe and Organic Jojoba Oil.  All of these high quality ingredients are what give you the kind of results you are after.  
This serum is really lightweight so it immediately soaks into the skin and instantly diminishes fine lines and plumps the skin.  With daily use this serum fades sun spots and discoloration, diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and refines skin texture!  Apply it twice a day to your face, neck and decollete for best results!

BEAUTYOILS.CO 100% Pure Camellia Oil-Review





It's all about the oils!  It seems like Facial Oils are everywhere these days and for an oily skinned girl like myself the thought of putting oil on my face can be a little scary but I know the benefits can be amazing!
Thankfully, I like to try a lot of products and that especially includes oils!  BEAUTYOILS.CO sent me their 100% Pure Camellia Oil to review for them and after I did a little research I was eager to test it out.  The Camellia Oil is also known as Green Tea Oil and has some really awesome benefits like the ability to heal scars, reduce signs of aging, can be used to remove makeup, moisturizer and it's also great to use on the ends of the hair to help prevent damage.
The oil is lightweight so it absorbs really quickly into the skin leaving it soft, plump and smooth.  I have been using it around my eyes like an eye serum and on my neck and decollete.  I love how it softens the fine lines and leaves my skin feeling really hydrated.  I have also been using it on the ends of my to add moisture to my dry ends and tame the flyaways!
The Camellia Oil is a great universal oil that can be used just about everywhere and I am really happy that I got to test it out and that it has found a permanent place in my skincare routine!

Kitty Moodycards-Review



I think these Kitty Moodycards are hilarious and they are perfect for my office!  I also have the Dog Moodycards as well so it's fun to sit them on my desk and switch them out depending on my mood.  They are also a great conversation piece and every time someone comes into my office it's the first thing they notice and it's to hear them giggle when they see it.  I also like that something so simple and inexpensive can help lighten the mood somewhere where it might otherwise be a little too serious or even a little too boring!  Fun!

Premium Eyelash Curler by liveWIRE Beauty-Review



For me, a good quality Eyelash Curler is a "Must Have" beauty tool.  I naturally have hooded eyes so curling my eyelashes is something that I do everyday or at least on the days I wear make-up to help my eyes appear more open.
I have been testing this Eyelash Curler out from liveWIRE Beauty for the last several weeks and I am super impressed with the quality and there is no pinching or pulling of my eyelashes.  The Eyelash Curler by liveWIRE Beauty grabs all my lashes and gives me the perfect curl and helps me create that more wide-eyed that I am going for.
Another great feature is that the pad is made from hyperelastic sillicon that springs back to life immediately upon use and never requires refill pads!

Adovia Dead Sea Bath Salts-Review



I love a good bath and for me adding bath salts, like these ones that Adovia sent me are a "Must Have" for a good bath.  These Dead Sea Bath Salts by Adovia have over 26 essential minerals that the body needs for natural soothing and relaxation and are way better than the average Epsom Salts!
I also like to use the Adovia Dead Sea Salts to make few varieties of salt scrubs.  I just use mason jars and add some of the Dead Sea Salt, Fractionated Coconut Oil and my choice of Essential Oils for each one like Lavender and Lemon.  The salt helps rejuvenate and exfoliate your skin leaving it super soft and leaving you feeling super relaxed and the Fractionated Coconut Oil hydrates your skin while the Essential Oil helps to soothe the senses!
The Adovia Dead Sea Bath Salts contain absolutely zero additives, colors, or scents so they are perfect for making your own creations or on their own to add to your bath water and soak all your aches and pains away!
