Gluten Free Bar Review [A Tasty Treat to Take With You!]

I had the chance to try out some really tasty treats by a company called Gluten Free Bar. What I love about this company and the products they make is that they are certified gluten-free, certified vegan, certified Non-GMO (VERY important to me) as well as certified kosher and soy-free. They really care about what goes into their products and you will love their products even more when you find out the company was started by two close brothers who just did not like gluten. They started out in 2010 and are carried in over 5,000 locations across the United States and Canada. Make sure you read more about them here.

I had the chance to try a variety of items. I had the chance to try Gluten- Free Bites in peanut butter and jelly bites, dark chocolate hazelnut bites, and coconut cashew crunch bites.

I also had the chance to try out a variety of their bars such as dark chocolate coconut, oatmeal raisin, peanut butter, chocolate peanut butter and other flavors.

I really enjoyed the gluten f…

Why You Should Purchase Your Christmas Tree Online

This is the second year in a row that I've received my Christmas tree courtesy of the Internet and I am so happy about the experience. I remember before I tried getting my tree this way I imagined that the only kinds of trees you could get online were fake ones. But you know that isn't true? You can actually get freshly cut Christmas tree from small tree farms that get shipped to you.

So why purchase a Christmas tree online when the lot is just down the street? Well, let me tell you. There are some very good reasons to do it this way that I've proposed and some you may not have thought of before. Here's a few things to think about -

1) You don't own a car.

This is my number one reason for why I've gone route of ordering Christmas trees online. I don't own a car and there's something very un-holiday spirit feeling of lugging up a 6 foot Christmas tree down the street and to my home in the cold and rain. So if you are in this situation and don't want …

Cool Yourself Off With Ozeri Oscillating Fan [Amazon Prime Deal Alert!]

I had the opportunity to review a fan made by Ozeri. It's a 42 inch oscillating tower fan with noise reduction technology. When the fan arrived, I was surprised at the size of it! It was much bigger than expected. You have the choice of putting it on a raised stand and that's what I did. I thought it was fairly easy to put together and once finished, I plugged it in and set it up in the living room.  The raised stand like I chose may be a problem if you have dogs or children. The fan part of it was very quiet and gentle but provided a great breeze in the room. My family said it felt like we were sitting in the car with the windows rolled down. I thought that was a great description of it!




I know this time of year you are probably not thinking of purchasing fans but rather heaters, yet I really think this is one you should consider purchasing. It's very well made and I love the fact that it has a place to hide the remote at the top (especially because I always l…

Make Something Amazing With Earth Balance Peanut Butter [Review]

I had the opportunity to try out Earth Balance peanut butter recently thanks to a couple of coupons I received to try out one of their products for free, and I can't wait to share you my experience.

First of all, if you see Earth Balance products, you'll be happy to know that they have a lot of GOOD to offer you.  All of their products are 100% plant-based, vegan, (and my favorite of all) NON-GMO, lactose-free, egg free, and zero grams of trans fat. And they even have their share of gluten-free products too. So they are good in my book! Read more about them here.

I really really enjoy their peanut butter. First of all, I am usually enormously picky about my peanut butter, so to have this brand end up on my top five list of peanut butters is pretty awesome. Second of all, I think this peanut butter is PERFECT for your upcoming holiday recipes. And lastly, this peanut butter is SO tasty.

I tried out their crunchy peanut butter with flax and YUM. Just as peanut butter alone I li…

Soothe Your Skin With Honey by Savannah Bee Company [Review + Giveaway]

Remember Savannah Bee Company? It's a company that's been in business since 1999, and started by beekeeper Ted Dennard. I've reviewed their products before and each one is SUCH high quality. I mean really, these would make an excellent gift for someone - hint hint, our favorite holiday is JUST around the corner.

Olivella - Olive Oil For Your Face and Body [Review + Discount!]

We all know how good olive oil is for you, and I love seeing olive oil based products that you can actually use on your face. I had the chance to try out a couple of items from a company called Olivella and I can't wait to tell you about it!
I don't know about you but  washing my face at night seems to be such a huge ordeal for me, but I have finally gotten myself into the habit of doing it at night. My first impression of this soap is that you can tell it has olive oil in it, it has the scent of olive oil in it. I like this a lot because when a product has natural ingredients I don't need any phony perfume on it. Especially when it's a product I will be using on my face.
So the process began, I suds up the washcloth and washed my face. I loved the fact that this soap didn't dry out my skin. I've used a lot of soaps that do just that and you feel that horrid pull of your skin drying out. And although I still followed up with a moisturizer afterwards I could feel…
