Soy Candle - Made by Aurorae [Review and Giveaway]

My mom and I both love candles and I could never think of anything negative to say about candles - they add a pleasant aroma and a relaxing atmosphere to any room. As the colder seasons roll around, I appreciate candles more and more in my home.

I had the chance to review the Eucalyptus - Healing soy candle made by Aurorae Yoga Company. And I can't wait to tell you guys about it!

Each of their soy candles are 100% soy wax and are 6.8 ounces each. The one thing I noticed about these candles is that it burns evenly. I didn't notice that there were sides that ended lopsided or anything like that. When I first saw that it was Eucalyptus scent I first thought UH OH (I used to have stinky eucalyptus trees near my childhood home!) But actually as I burned the candle, I noticed a pleasant greenery type of scent that just added a lovely clean, fresh scent to the living room.

These definitely aren't very strong, which is nice. The candle also burns cleaner thanks to it being made of soy, so no ugly burn marks.

For pricing, from what I've seen online when shopping for candles, I think this is a good price. It runs between $12.95 to $14.95 right now on Amazon and you can select from a variety of scents. Purchase now on

Aurorae Yoga company makes all kinds of products, including (and probably most of all) items for anyone who practices yoga. It was actually started by Dennis Ingui, who used yoga as an outlet to build his body strength and develop inner peace and has been doing so since 2001. Not only does their website offer very cool products, I really enjoy their blog called "Illuminations Blog" and I highly recommend you check it out 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…

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!
