Gift Idea: Create a Customized Work Out Journal [Review and Giveaway]

I know the last thing you want to hear about is the New Year considering that Christmas hasn't arrived yet but if you are considering what gifts to buy for that person who is committing themselves to a weight loss goal this new year than you may want to consider buying them a customized work out journal!

First one of the nice things about the process of creating this journal is that it is customized to the type of journal you are looking for! When you visit their website you simply click on, "Create an Awesome Journal Now" and you start to go through the process of creating one. You are given a wide variety of design options although I highly recommend you create your own cover. It really comes together when you select the design you want because you can decide on the workout page you would like and where you are at in your workout level such as beginner or competitor. There are TONS of options to choose from and I love that part of these journals.

Again, I highly recommend you choose your own cover and personalize because it is the best part of creating these on your own. And if you aren't of the workout persuasion they also offer other journal options such as project planners.

I really like the prices of these journals - for a customized journal they are VERY reasonable at the price of $14.99. I think that's a great deal!

Find out more information by visiting this link.  Be sure to follow them on Facebook as well.

I am so excited to announce I can give a customized journal to one lucky reader! Enter via rafflecopter below. Ends 12/29. US Only.

  3. This would be great to keep track of the exercise I am doing.

  4. I would love to win this journal to help me get back on track with my exercise regimen. I was an avid runner and have been struggling with sticking to an exercise routine since my doctor told me I couldn't run anymore a couple months ago.

  5. I would love to win this journal so that I could customize it my way and keep track of exercise, steps and calories!

  6. I find that if I write things down, I am more apt to do them. If I can see my progress and account for my workouts that would keep me motivated! Thanks!!

  7. I do a much better job staying on course when I track my progress - this would be awesome!

  8. I would love to win because I think it'll help me hold some accountability to what I'm doing each day! Last year the goal was to eat at home more. We accomplished it for a year. Now lets add some daily workouts!

  9. I plan on trying to exercise more this coming year. This would definitely help me keep track of what I do and help with improvements!

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 …
