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…

The Best Gluten-Free Soup I've Had in a Long Time (And Giveaway]

​​​​​​​​ Since I've been gluten-free it isn't always to figure out easy lunch solutions. I'm not a huge fan of frozen options and I really don't think I've found the perfect, consistently amazing lunch time bread. And soups? Well, I haven't found my favorite soups yet either. Until now.
So I had the chance to try out Blount's Soups! I tried two different kinds - 
Tomato Bisque

Broccoli Cheddar



Here's what I thought:
The Good:
Theses soups are non-gmo, organic, and gluten-free. First, the tomato bisque. I found this tasted so good. I like when Tomato Soup is on the creamy side. And this was! I'm never a fan when tomato soup has more of a ketchupy, liquidy tomato flavor. But when it really tastes like a soup? Oh yum! 
For the Broccoli Cheddar, it may not have been as thick and creamy and cheesy as I usually love about Broccoli Cheddar, it was still really tasty. I just needed a bit more salt. 
The Not so Good
You know, not like I'm trying to avoid a…

Why You Should Buy Organic Coffee [and Giveaway]

I'm always on the organic route when I go into a grocery store, but I have only just recently heard that we really should be drinking organic coffee. I never really thought of this before and didn't realize the importance of choosing organic coffee until now.

One major reasons to drink organic coffee?

You avoid a good majority of the pesticides.

This is the main reason I choose organic produce. Did you know that coffee is known to be one of the most heavily sprayed crops? While many argue the roasting process eliminates the pesticide residue, this still doesn't leave warm feelings in my coffee pot about what the coffee bean could entail. (SOURCE)

It's also environmentally beneficial. Many conventional growers will clear out forests to make room for their crops. This eliminates natural pest killers like birds and other creatures and this leads to more pesticide use. Organic coffee is grown more naturally, maintaining the forest life in the surrounding area.
