Spellbinders Celebra'tion Collection - Get Crafty! [Giveaway ends 8/22]


One of my favorite things to do is make crafts, although I'm not especially good at inventing new ideas on my own. But the idea of a homemade card or little gift or party  supply just appeals to me! That's why I was so excited to try out the crafts from Spellbinders Celebra'tion Collection provided to me by Purex Insiders.

Spellbinders Celebra'tion Collection was inspired by designer Richard Garay. He has a passion for paper crafts (my kind of guy!), event hosting, and handmade greetings. His creations are "cheerful, bright and yummy" which make them not only easy to create but fun and inspiring.

I had the chance to create two little crafts - one was a card and the other was a treat bag. The colors used in each of these creations were so bright and fun and colorful.


I also looked over each of the items offered in the Celebra'tions Collection and these are so much fun! There are papers, inks, stamps, dies, and embellishments to choose from. I was so excited to see that the website also has an idea gallery, for those of you like me who needs a little (or maybe a lot) of guidance on putting crafts together. This will definitely make you want to purchase something off the website, because these cards and crafts look better and more colorful than what you would find in a store!

The best thing of all is that I get to giveaway a stamp collection to one of my lucky crafty readers! (You will have to buy acrylic blocks separately!).

You can also purchase from the Richard Garay, Celebra'tions collection by visiting the Spellbinders website here

Vitamin C Serum - Add This To Your Morning Beauty Routine [Review and Giveaway]

What is your morning (or evening) beauty routine? For me, I'm usually so tired at night that if I remember to wash my face, it's an enormous deal. But in the morning, I pay so much more attention to my skin. I always put on coconut oil of some kind, but lately, I've been adding a new addition to my routine - Vitamin C Serum.

I've heard about the benefits of using a Vitamin C Serum for a while now and jumped at the chance to try it out and see the kind of impact this had on my skin.

I have been using the Amara Organics Vitamins C Serum 20% (with Vitamin E and Hydraulic Acid) Serum for a couple of weeks now. One thing that stood out to me was how gentle this was on my skin. It wasn't harsh at all. I use it daily each morning and follow it up with  a moisturizer.

Vitamin C Serum is supposed to reduce signs of aging. I'm only 28 so I'm not sure that I have a lot of evidence of aging to worry about just yet. This is also supposed to brighten skin, repair damage…

Lotus Foods Rice Review and Giveaway


I tend to eat quite a bit of rice in my diet. First, because it's a healthy grain. Plus, I'm also gluten-free and it's a good grain for me to have that won't negatively impact my body.
So I usually purchase one particular type of rice brand, so I was really eager for the chance to try out a new kind. I tried out rice by Lotus Foods. You may have seen them in the store or heard of them before! 
What makes Lotus Foods different? Well they work towards improving the lives of the farmers they work with first of all. They use what is called a "System of Rice Intensification." It's a way of allowing farms to "double and triple their yields while using 80-90% less seed, 50% less water, less or no chemical inputs." Basically, more rice, less water. So I tend to be a visual learner, so if you want to know more about what this means, watch this really short video below:

They also partner with small scale farmers, which I think is amazing and I really …

Crazy Richards Peanut Butter Review & Giveaway

I absolutely love peanut butter. Really, I mean peanut butter is such a huge part of my diet. And you know, I really appreciate when peanut butter has simple ingredients. Peanuts. Salt. And that's it. I don't like added oils and I'm not TOO big of a fan of flavored peanut butters. Although I'd never turn down chocolate peanut butter (if I found the right blend!).
Anyways, I had the chance to try out some peanut butter by a company called, "Crazy Richards." Crazy Richard's Peanut Butter has been around a while. It was formed and combined by two Richards about 30 years ago and was recently passed along to the newest generation.
Well, I got the chance to try out their peanut butter - creamy and crunchy. I loved it. Here's a weird thing I love with peanut butter - whole milk vanilla Greek yogurt with blueberries! Sure people put peanut butter in smoothies, but I scoop out some of my favorite vanilla greek yogurt into a cup and put it in the freezer with …
