Ursa Major - Cleansing, Smooth Beauty Product [Review]

This company Ursa Major was new to me when I found the opportunity to review their products. I am a little wary of putting unfamiliar skincare items on my skin, so I was a little nervous to try this. But I do love when a company describes themselves as being a "natural alternative to the bland, toxin-laden products that pervade today's marketplace." (Read more on their website)

Take a look at the items I reviewed -

So, one Saturday afternoon, my skin felt SO irritated and grimy and oily and my skin wasn't feeling so great. And so I decided to give this facial wash a try. I'm not usually the kind to go for these, but given the fact that I had this in the bathroom, why not? So, I tried it and you know my skin immediately felt so smooth and clean. I've used it a couple more times since then and it's so nice on my skin. I'm not sure I would use it every day, but it's a wonderful thing to soothe your skin. I highly recommend this.

I also tried out a few of their facial wipes and I loved these as well, especially at the end of a long day when washing my face just won't happen. These worked great and they didn't have a strong scent to me, which was nice, because I usually like a clean smell with facial wipes like this.

So I had a brief overview of Ursa Major products and so far I think they are a great beauty brand to try out and consider adding to your beauty regimen. Use my personal coupon code exclusive to blog readers - Fancy That - for a week only after this review is posted!

Thank you to Ursa Major for giving me the chance to try the above products.


  1. This product sounds so wonderful. I would really love to try the facial wipes. There are times your face feels really yucky, like when your on a road trip, and these would come in handy.

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 …
