Activity Gift Ideas: Be Tourist in Your Own Town with Vimbly.com!

Although I've lived in Portland, Oregon for over 7 years now, there are still some unexplored neighborhoods that I have yet to really get to know. You know how it is, when you get into a rut it's just hard to break out of sometimes!

One thing that I would love to see happen for myself is to really get to know some of these areas and when I heard about Vimbly.com I knew this was the right way to do that! So I can't wait to talk about their website.

First of all, I do want to tell you they aren't in EVERY city. Right now it looks like they are in Anaheim, Los Angeles, New York City, Phoenix, Seattle, Boston, Maui, Portland, Washington DC, Chicago, Miami, Orlando, San Diego, Las Vegas, New Orleans, Philadelphia, and San Francisco. So they offer a very large selection of kind of cities that may just be on your list of vacation hot spots this summer.

You can sign up VERY easily. It took me less than two seconds with my Facebook account. And once you select a city to explore, you can start browsing around activities you want to learn more about.

Just taking a look at what they have to offer, I can already see two that I want to save for myself, like Murder Mystery Theater!

Plus, they offer you a "bucket list" so you can keep track of which activities you want to participate in and when the next schedule for that activity pops up. Check out what my bucket list looks like right now:



What I like in terms of food related activities is that you can tell them about allergy information and I think this is great. What I like best about this site is that you can purchase a gift card for someone. I think this is wonderful when you want to give a gift (maybe for a long distant friend or  family member) without having it be just a plain ol' gift card. Now with Vimbly they can DO something.

Visit Vimbly.com and find out if there are activities in your area and sign up!

  1. I did not see my nearest city (Tampa) listed, but Orlando is on there. I lived in Kissimmee through middle school and high school and I am very familiar with the touristy AND the not-so-touristy things to do. I did see a Sunrise Hot Air Balloon ride that would be nice. Everything else is so snooze-worthy (been there, done that a zillion times!). Hopefully they add more cities AND add truly unique attractions and activities.

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…

5 Recipes Made with Gluten-Free Bagels

When I think of bagels, I don't usually think of things I can make with them outside of my usual go to stuff, like cheese melts, avocado toast and toasted bagel and peanut butter. 
But there are some recipes that take bagels to the next level and I came across some created by "The Greater Knead" bagel company and I absolutely had to share these with you. And I had the chance to try out some of their bagels, but more on that later. First, the tasty bagel goodness.
The Bagel Crumble.

To make this, you take their chocolate bagel (oh yes, I said chocolate), a little oil, and cinnamon and some honey. And from there you chop it up and bake it and cover it with tastiness and put it over ice cream. Just check out this recipe and you'll see why you want it.

French Toast Bites.
If there is anyone out there reading this that remembers how yummy french toast was pre-gluten-free days, I think you should check out this …

What To Do When You Stuck in a Snack Rut [Giveaway Inside!]

Sometimes you can easily get in a rut with food. I know I get that way. The same products are in the store, you have the same lunch ideas, you buy the same snacks, the same everything. I know that it actually can be hard to step outside my comfort zone and try something new.

So that's when subscription boxes can help. It's an excellent way of finding new things to try, getting some extra snacks, and opening up your horizon to new foods. Whether you are celiac or gluten-intolerant or simply eat gluten-free by choice, it's time to broaden those horizons!

I recently had the chance to try out the "American Gluten-Free" food box. Here's the photo of what I received -
