Cocomels - An Amazing Sweet Treat That Is Gluten-Free (or Dairy or Soy Free) #Giveaway



Being gluten intolerant has created some challenges for me. From being cautious with foods I'm selecting to researching the menu of a restaurant I visit to refraining from letting my sweet tooth guide what I eat before I have the chance to inspect ingredient lists. And when I had the chance to try out "Cocomels" I couldn't wait to see what they were like.

Cocomels were started by founder "JJ" who wanted a company that was like Willy Wonka with a twist - candies healthier for our bodies. And then the experimentation began! He tried out different treats and recipes to create this tasty before you treat. Read more about Cocomels beginnings over on their About page.

I received a few different varieties to try! I tried the Espresso, the Sea Salt, the Original and the Vanilla. You know at first I was a little wary, because I thought at first it was hard candy when I took a look at what the Cocomels were like. But they soften as you start to enjoy them and they taste so uniquely sweet. They have a gentle coconut flavor complimented by their corresponding flavors. My favorite of all was Sea Salt. I absolutely enjoyed that!

I actually think these are a PERFECT treat for someone that maybe isn't able to enjoy the usual candies and chocolates out there. I had a coworker who couldn't have dairy or soy and I offered her some and she was so happy! I think this is a great way to surprise someone who maybe can't always enjoy the usual treats that other people do.

And you know for a variety pack of 4, it's $21.99 right now! I think that's an amazing deal and worth buying that's for sure. They also offer chocolate covered cocomels and I would love to try those, I'll bet they would be amazing. Check them out.

Be sure to follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

I'm also so happy to announce that one of my lucky readers will win a Cocomels Prize Pack! Enter via Rafflecopter below. Ends 3/5.

Eat. Dream. Be. - Healthy Snack Bars [Review]



It's that time of year where we're all contemplating the holiday treats and sweets we finished off recently and getting ourselves back on track. Well, if you are in need of a treat that will leave you guilt-free, than I have something for you.

It's called, "Eat. Dream. Be." and these bars are healthy, filling, and will likely satisfy that sweet treat you desire. These treats were created by two friends who met and wanted to collaborate further. And Eat. Dream. Be as you can see by their website is far more than just food related amazingness. They offer up music and podcasts too. 

The thing that's first great about the dream bar is that it's certified gluten-free and that's something I'm very strict about focusing on because of my intolerance to gluten. They have three different kinds - Banana Lavendar, Apple Chamomile and Tart Cherry Lemon Balm. They don't offer up a sharp sweet flavor and at this point in the year that's a good thing. I actually feel good about myself eating these. The tart cherry starts out with a mild lemon flavor than has a tangy cherry flavor in there too. The apple chamomile is also mildly sweet and has just a pleasant flavor of apple throughout. The banana one was something my brother enjoyed (I'm not too big of a fan of banana) and he actually really liked this as well. 

I think overall these are fantastic for an on-the-go snack to have while you are getting fit this year. I promise you will not feel guilty enjoying these treats. You'll actually feel pretty good about yourself. Especially if you slather on some almond butter - yum! 

So if your interest is peaked, then head on over to the Eat. Dream. Be site and purchase some! This will compliment your next road trip, next hike, and any future adventure you have planned this year.

Organic Chocolate that You Must Try Now [Hnina Chocolate Review + Giveaway]


Chocolate is one of those things that is actually good for you, But let's be real though, some chocolates have more of a "wow" factor than others. Am I right?


So I had the chance to try some healthy rich chocolate made by a company called, "Hnina Gourmet." They have a mission to provide delicious and HEALTHY chocolate to all of us chocolate fans.

I got to try out some amazing truffles and chocolate bars by Hnina Gourmet. Their truffles are so incredibly rich and they actually aren't too sweet. They are truly a healthy chocolate experience so you will actually feel REALLY good about yourself after enjoying this chocolate. 

I ended up wanting to try out this chocolate in baking and I bake muffins on the weekends usually. I broke up a chocolate bar and sprinkled in the top alongside some berries. And you guys, this chocolate cooks up GREAT! It inspired me to think up more creations and I would love to try out this chocolate with some hot chocolate. Yum! 

If you are curious about some great recipe ideas then here's a few that I think you will be inspired to create thanks to this chocolate - 

Homemade Smores Fudge Wedding Favor

Beehive Cheddar - Tasty, Flavorful Cheeses to Enjoy


I'm such a cheese fanatic and some days I can't resist but over eat cheese. Anyone else like that? Well, I love gourmet cheeses. Some kinds you just want to be able to sit back with a glass of wine and enjoy a slice of some tasty cheddar. I have found that gourmet experience with Beehive Cheese.

You know how I discovered this cheese? Through the Avery Aames Cheese Shop Mystery books! It's a fun series by the way, perfect for the cheese lover, because the cheeses mentioned in the book are REAL. So I had to see what this was like and I was so happy the company was willing to send me some samples to try.  (P.S. This is the series by the way! Check it out.

The Beehive Cheese Company was started by brothers-in-law Tim Welsh and Pat Ford who left their software jobs to start this cheese company. Any other fellow cubical workers envying this like I am? They brought back the local creamery to northern Utah and their business is family owned and operated. Check out more of their history

Anyways I enjoyed each of the cheeses that I tried. I got the chance to try out a few different kinds! I was a HUGE fan of the Seahive Cheese. They describe this cheddar on their site as being creamy and I love creamy cheeses. They make for excellent cheesy scrambled eggs and I actually tried this with eggs and it was SO good.

You know what was a unique tasty experience? The Barely Buzzed! It had a mix of honey and lavender taste and if you are making up a spicy sort of recipe, I would say sprinkle some of this cheddar on top. This is very unique good stuff.

Honestly I enjoyed all of the cheeses that I had the chance to try. I also tried Promontory Beehive Original and Big John's Cajun, which was a spicier type of cheese. These were just fun to snack on and sprinkle on some of my cheesey recipes.

I absolutely highly recommend you check this cheese out and purchase some to try. If you are cheese fanatic like I am, I think you will enjoy this cheddar. It offers so much flavor experience.

Fran's Chocolates - Delectable Treats to Treat Yourself



The holidays may be over, but I can't help but realize that it is never a bad time for chocolate. Right, everyone? And I came across some amazing chocolate that I just cannot wait to tell you about!

It's called Fran's Chocolates. Oh my, you guys. Oh my. These chocolates, originally crafted by master chocolatier Fran Bigelow were created with an artists technique when considering the flavor which is an intense sensory experience. I love reading the history of this chocolate creator and so go on and check out the story of how she came to be so good at what she does - Read Fran's Story.

I had the chance to try out some of Fran's Chocolates bars! And you know what? They. Were. Amazing. The first kind I tried reminded me a bit of a superior version of an Almond Joy. It's called their Coconut Gold Bars. They are made with coconut, almonds and covered in chocolate. It's so flavorful and rich tasting! Their coconut is blended with white chocolate to make it a little extra sweet and rich. It's just definitely gourmet. Purchase Now.

The other kind I got to try was their Almond Gold Bars. These reminded me of a gourmet, far superior version of a Snickers actually. It's made with chocolate, rich caramel, and dark chocolate. They were so good! It was such a treat to have this - especially having something that reminds me of a candy from childhood but EVEN BETTER! Purchase these now too. And then the Macadamia Gold Bars are made with caramel, dark chocolate and macadamia nuts. And these were amazing too! I love macadamia nuts already because they are a buttery sweet nut and so to add these to candy? Absolutely amazing. Purchase now.

Another thing that I love about this chocolate is that these gold bars are actually pretty decently sized and I enjoyed about two at one time and you know? That was enough for me! They are really rich and I was able to eagerly share with my family!

For six bars, they run about $30 or so on their website. And if you are considering a gift this would be something I think you should consider. It's such good chocolate!

I received this in exchange for my honest review.

Thoughtfully Gifts - Unique & Flavorful Gift Ideas! #ChristmasIdeas [Review + Giveaway]

I can't wait to tell you about this really unique gift idea. It's called, "Thoughtfully." Well, they offer up such a wide variety of gifts that you can give (or give to yourself!). I mean just glancing over at their site and I can spend hours on there. And I am particularly obsessed with their food and bar area (check it out).

In fact, that is why I am so excited to share with you this really awesome gift set that I had the chance to try out! It's called the "Tequila Cantina." If you know someone who loves tequila, I think this is an incredible gift to give. Check out some of the photos I took -





You really get nice quality things when you get this type of gift set. It came with four delectable different salts (my favorite is sweet salt; oh yes, yum). And the lime salt (um yeah, oh so yum). And it came with a really fancy cutting board and knife! When I set it all up, I couldn't take it down for weeks. I felt so fancy! Like I wanted to invite everyone over to do shots. Hehe.

Price wise, it is a tad bit expensive - this comes at about $99.99. But you really get quality stuff here. You do. And if this isn't your style, they offer up so much more. Check out this breakfast in bed gift set or this coffee therapy gift set. 

You know what is even better is that I don't even have to warn you about deceptively large products in the photos. You do get nicely sized items when you purchase these gift sets. When I looked over what they had to offer, I assumed everything would be so tiny. But that wasn't the case! These are really nice!

This will honestly be one of the first sites that I go to if I'm at a loss for gifts. They have so many clever sets to offer. I'm kind of also loving their birthday gift sets too (I mean, if you want a gift for you for your birthday, this would be so fun to get, or GIVE! Even better right??) And the prices range widely too, so not everything is expensive. So this is worth your time and consideration, I really can't say that enough.

Follow them on Twitter and Facebook for fun updates. And I'm so happy to announce one lucky reader will receive a Thoughtfully gift box from a specific catalog. Enter via Rafflecopter below. US Only. Ends 12/18.

Mrs. Renfro's Salsa & Sauces [Review + Giveaway]



I have always been such a fan of Mrs. Renfro's salsa and sauces and this time around was no different for me! I think one of the coolest thing about the company is that it's family involved - you can just tell by the people who are running the show! Take a look here.

I had the chance to try out a few of their items as you can see. First of all, for the longest time I had been wanting to have cheese sauce. Well I had the chance to try out their Ghost Pepper Cheese Sauce. OH MY you guys this is spicy spicy stuff! And I LOVE hot sauces! But this stuff...this leaves the memory of hot and spicy on your tongue for the longest time. I swear. But if you can withstand spicy and hot flavors, you will want to try this. Check it out! But that isn't the only other kind of cheese sauce they have! They have other kinds that I plan to try out (um, that maybe isn't so hot, haha).

I also tried out their Classic Barbecue Sauce! This was really good. It had just a bit of spicy flavor to it but this time it didn't overwhelm me. I loved adding this to chicken and I think you would too. It had that sweet barbecue flavor but it was just a little spicy. This stuff was good.

Also I had the chance to try out their nacho jalapeno slices! These were amazing too. And you know? Not that hot. I liked that! I comfortably add them to things like tortillas with cheese or beans and rice or nachos. So good.

Find out all the great things that Mrs. Renfro's has to offer! Click here to find out the products that they have and purchase some for your next family gathering! Also like them on Facebook or Twitter too!

Great Coffee Gifts - Capresso Grinder & Percolator [Review & Giveaway]



For the longest time, I have wanted to try out a percolator. I remember growing up we would go to this Italian restaurant that had the BEST percolated coffee. You could just smell the good coffee in the restaurant when it was being made. So when I had the chance to review this percolator by Capresso, I couldn't wait to tell you about it.

Let me tell you that if you are a coffee lover, or know one, this is an excellent site to visit to get some great coffee gift ideas. Like, really. They offer EVERYTHING you need for your coffee fix from grinders, to espresso machines, to milk frothers, to coffee makers. And it's awesome quality stuff.

So when I set up the percolator, it was a bit of a process of figuring out what was best for me. My tip is - more coffee, less water. I tried to go by the suggestion by ended up with pretty weak coffee. I like really strong coffee, actually. So I chose ground well dark roast coffee and made sure to fill it as much as I could (but left a little room at the top) and filled it up to ten cups of water.

THAT made good coffee. I really enjoyed this so much and it is such a special experience to make this type of coffee. It's rich, actually. It's a different taste than when you use an espresso machine or drip coffee.

If you have been looking for a percolator, you can purchase this 12 cup percolator by Capresso by visiting this link. It's available right now for $69.99.


The other item I reviewed was this Ceramic Burr Grinder. Oh my goodness I love this thing! For a long time I would just use this smaller kind and do just two batches of coffee with the grinder .So this one, you fill the top lid with coffee beans and grind it up. You pull out the container and voila - coffee! It's a great to me, because I can just fill the beans up and press the button and walk away while it grinds up. It only stops when the container it fills into reaches the top. My only tiny complaint is that is a tad messy when you take off the lid, but not that much. My favorite feature is that you only have to do ONE round of grinding (I usually make a full 12 cups of coffee).

If you are interested in this grinder, make sure you visit this link and purchase it now for $59.99.

Capresso offers so much for the coffee lover and I highly recommend that you take a look at all of their amazing items and consider their stuff for a holiday gift! Like them on Facebook for updates and Twitter as well.

I am so happy to announce that one of my lucky readers will win a Capresso Percolator! Enter via Rafflecopter below. US Only. Ends 12/16.

Cucina & Amore - Tasty Food! [Review + Giveaway}



Happy Thanksgiving! What better time to talk about food than today, right? And I love the chance to try some foods that take me out of my comfort zone. And I found that opportunity with some amazing foods by Cucina & Amore. They sent me a few items that I can't wait to tell you guys about.



Cucina & Amore is a company that focuses their attention on healthy food. Isn't that awesome? Founder Ruth Wilkinson who wanted to create simple and healthy meals for her family. A mom, breast cancer survivor and a pretty obvious foodie if I do say so myself, she created this business to be the thing that she wanted to see in her pantry. Read more about the company over on this page.



First I had the chance to try out their Quinoa Meals. That was definitely a unique experience! I hadn't had anything like that before. They have a ton of different kinds to offer (check it out here!) and the thing I like about it is that it isn't too filling. I like a light snack kind of vibe for meals like this. I would highly suggest heating it up and one of my favorite was the Spicy Jalapeno and Roasted Peppers which was VERY flavorful.



Also I had the chance to try out a very unique salsa called Piquillo Pepper and Mango! I loved the smell if it because it had that hot salsa scent but also a mild sweetness thanks to the mango. It was so good to dip chips in and it was so tasty. I actually really recommend this! (Check it out here!)

I've gotten really into artichokes lately so I also enjoyed their artichoke bruschetta that worked so well with some of these gluten-free crackers I found. It's a great addition to any holiday pre-meal snacks that you may have prepared! (Check it out here)

A few other items I had the chance to try was their Truffle Sauce. I hadn't tried truffle sauce before and I really have to say I enjoyed it with rice and sundried tomatoes (just a little bit mixed in). That you guys was so good. I highly recommend this. (Check it out here)

Overall if you are looking for a great food experience, I would suggest Cucina & Amore. They have quality excellent tasting foods to offer and they are such good quality. I would say find out where you can find them in a store near you! Need some recipe ideas? They have some really good ones here! Make sure to like them on Facebook and Twitter.

I am so excited to announce that I get to giveaway a Quinoa Meal Box (6 meals in one box) to three lucky winners! Enter via Rafflecopter below. Ends 12/16. US Only.

Modern Oats - Instant Oatmeal [Review & Giveaway]


I do enjoy oatmeal in the morning but half the time I don't really bother taking the time to make a full on breakfast before I leave for the day. I'm not much of a morning person! So I enjoy when I can find an instant oatmeal that I feel good about having and it's quick too. 

So I couldn't wait to tell you guys about my experience with trying out their foods.  It was founded in 2013 and they desired to change how people thought of oatmeal. They basically created their food for the people who think oatmeal is boring. And you know, you can tell. This stuff is pretty good.

As you can see, I had the chance to try a variety of flavors. One thing that jumped out at me is that they offer up Gluten-Free, Non-GMO whole rolled oats. The mix-ins that they add into the oatmeal are all really healthy, like dried fruit, nuts, and seeds. It's just a really healthy morning meal. And I LOVE that!

One of my favorite flavors that I tried is the Chocolate Cherry. THIS was incredible. I ate these up so quickly. I loved the chocolate mixed in with the oats. It actually made me happy to eat breakfast. My second favorite was the Apple Walnut. I felt like this was also a great flavor combination and didn't need any extra sweetener like honey or anything like that!

If you are as excited about these oatmeal cups as I am, make sure to check out where you can buy some in a store near you! Be sure to sign up for their newsletter and find out other flavors they have to offer.

I am so happy to announce that I get to giveaway a variety pack to one lucky reader! Enter via Rafflecopter below. Contest ends 12/9.

(A Hidden Gem!) Free Spirit Farm Homemade Soaps and Lotions Review

I love when I find an unexpected hidden gem online and I found one with the Free Spirit Farm soaps and lotions. I can't wait to tell you guys about them! These are products made by two sisters and are made with trustworthy ingredients. Plus, the prices of these awesome soaps and lotions are the best I've seen in any beauty store.

So, here's the items I had the chance to try -



I absolutely loved their Lavender Dream soap. I have pretty sensitive skin these days and I know my face just LOOKS for reasons to break out or get weirdly dry in some patches. So I am always wary of new soaps to put on my skin. This stuff, this "Lavender Dream" soap was amazing. I loved it. It didn't dry out my skin, left me with just a really soft feeling and I used it daily for a couple of week. Plus, it smelled really nice and it didn't over do it with the scent at all. I'm also really happy to tell you that the price of this soap is extremely reasonable. I highly recommend this Like, really recommend. Please go out and buy this soap if you want quality good soap. Right now you can purchase their items on Etsy.com via this link here.

I also had the chance to try out some of their lotion! I really liked this a lot as well. I appreciated the healthy ingredients here too. I mostly used their lotion on my neck and hands but I toted this lotion with me to work and put some of the Peppermint Breeze lotion on my hands and I really enjoyed the fresh scent! It made me want to lick my hands. It wasn't oily at all and it just made my hands really soft. I tend to hand wash dishes a lot and that soap leaves my skin really dry and so using this lotion made for such a nice follow up.

Also I had the chance to try out their Chocolate Delight lip balms! And I have to tell you that if you are a chocolate fanatic I highly recommend purchasing this. This tastes like you  are rubbing cocoa on your lips. It's like a dessert and would honestly make for a perfect date lip balm if you know what I mean (wink wink, hint hint).

I may be overgushing here you guys but really these are such nice products at such reasonable prices. So go check out their web page here and also visit their Etsy page. If you don't see things on their Etsy page that you are interested in, I would say send them an email and find out when the product is available. These products would make such perfect Christmas gifts or stocking stuffers!

I received the above items in exchange for my honest review.

Boutique & Beauty Bar: Recipe for a Unique Shopping Experience #madonnaandco

There’s always a risk when you create something new. Will people like it? Will it succeed? Will it be worth it?

When Madonna and Co. re-launched in Mid-town East Side, (bordering on the Upper-East Side) from our former location in Soho, we emerged as a different entity, incorporating what made us great in the past, but with new additions. We were more.

In addition to our new location on 60th street, we opened a full service salon and beauty bar within the store, bringing to a life a completely unique shopping experience.

Fashion and Beauty: An Innovative Convergence

The inclusion of the beauty bar inside our boutique converged the worlds of fashion and beauty in a way that’s never been done. For the first time, women have the opportunity to receive comprehensive beautification in a one-stop shop.

Bringing together fashion and beauty as we have done was not without risk, but innovation always involves a leap of faith. New creations don’t arise from the ether. Innovation comes as the result of unique combinations, whether it be a boutique and a beauty bar, our designs and exclusive designer capsule collections, or glam and chic, etc. Creating one-of-a-kind experiences from unique combinations is what Madonna & Co. has always done.

Our willingness to break barriers and defy categorization is what makes our selection of fashion and accessories so vibrant and original. All of the clothing in our store has been designed and hand picked from collections around the world. By dealing with the designer themselves and direct with our factories, we are able to offer luxury items at affordable prices.

The vast selection of unique affordable clothing featured in our shop is what makes us the best NYC boutique operating today. By shopping at Madonna & Co., you receive the peace of mind in knowing that you’ll never cross paths with someone wearing the same outfit; one-of-a-kind, wearable and affordable clothes for independent woman is what we do.

Community of Independent Women

While the ability to get a full-service haircut, styling, and complete makeup treatment in the same place where you find all of your exclusive designs and luxury clothing is extremely convenient, the impetus behind opening the beauty bar had more to do with community than convenience.

We wanted to create a space where independent women from all walks of life and ages could come together to shop, socialize, and express their femininity. We imagined a world where the social aspects of a salon coalesced with the activity of shopping. Our love of fashion and beauty led us to invent a world that unites these spheres and offers women a place to have fun and engage in a dialogue about fashion and style.

At Madonna & Co. we believe in creating a personal style. We see it as our job to assist women in crafting their own individual aesthetic. Every woman that walks through our doors is a unique assemblage of beliefs, values, and traits. Her aesthetic preferences are a function of her entire worldview and identity.

Creating the perfect outfit involves a translation of sorts. Our aim is to help the women who shops in our store translate their core identity into an aesthetic that embodies and represents who they really are and how they feel. Every woman who comes into our store receives a unique treatment that results in a unique style – whether her preferences lean towards glam, chic, posh, or edgy.

The beauty bar allows us to take the crafting of a unique style one step further. In addition to helping women find their dream new fashions, our stylists bring years of experience and knowledge to the table, assisting women realize their dream hairstyle!

We offer every customer a free consultation at the salon and beauty bar before her first appointment. This consultation gives us the chance to learn about what the specific customer likes about her hair or makeup styling and what she’d like to change. Our stylists and make-up artists will then present some possible ways to enhance the aspects of her appearance that the customer would like to shake up.

While our head stylist is an expert in all types of hair, her specialty is curly hair and we call her "The Curly Hair Expert." Our custom line of No Frizz Miracle Gel – designed specifically for curly hair – mirrors this focus.

Come Join our Community

What are you waiting for? Come join in on the fun! Today’s the perfect day to unleash the beauty within you and find that perfect outfit you’ve been longing for.

Booking an appointment at the salon and beauty bar can be done either by phone or via styleseat.com or on our new on-line store, for your convenience.

We also provide off-site makeup & hair services as well and can help you plan the perfect party or host all kinds of events in our luxurious boutique, including bridal/baby showers, fashion product launches, etc.

So come on down today and introduce yourself!
