Ayushi - Do Right by Your Hair & Skin

I had the chance to review a couple of items from a place called Ayushi. It's a company that prides itself on providing hair care and skin care products that are organic and do not have a strong impact on the environment. They use products made in organic farms and are free of pesticides or artificial ingredients. Also, it's completely vegan and are against animal testing. Basically you can purchase these items without an ounce of guilt. Find out more information here.
I had the chance to try out their summer herbal shampoo. My hair is temperamental I feel and most of the time I think when I use shampoos I use either too much or not enough and my hair ends up feeling either dry or too oily. I found that this shampoo matched my hair's temperament nicely. It didn't leave it too dry and not too oily rather gave it a nice sheen to it. You can purchase it for $17.95 and that may seem a bit pricey but considering you're purchasing good quality items, I think the extra cos…

Get a Head Start on Spring Cleaning with @Dyson Ball Vacuum [Review]

Are you thinking about spring cleaning yet?

Alright so we're still in the heavy duty winter, so you may not be thinking of it yet. But just in case you are, and you're staring at your sorry excuse for a vacuum cleaner jammed in a closet, wondering if that will truly get you through to another year, well I have a great new vacuum for you!

It's the Dyson Ball Animal. It's my favorite new thing! This upright vacuum takes care of dirt and even microscopic dust. The ball allows the machine to turn on a dime - MY FAVORITE FEATURE - which means it can handle corners and turns. It includes a variety of tools perfect for handling hair and hard to reach cleaning. It also takes care of 99% of pollen, mold, and bacteria that it keeps trapped in its bin.

My impression of the Dyson Ball Vacuum?

Loving it so far!

When I first received it, it was a bit hard to put together. On a scale of 1 to 10, though, I'd give it about a 5. It's even easier if you read instructions first! H…

Santa Cruz Peanut Butter - Goes Great with the NewYear {Giveaway!}

I am such a huge fan of Santa Cruz Peanut Butter and now that the holiday season comes to an end, I hope you consider adding the Santa Cruz Organic brand to your shopping cart. I just finished up my breakfast and of course Santa Cruz Peanut Butter (with Dark Roasted Peanuts) and their most amazing blueberry-pomegranate jelly was part of the meal. I love spreading this on gluten-free toast and I occasionally will add in spoonfuls of peanut butter to my favorite muffin recipe. Not to mention, I highly recommend grilling your PB&J sandwich in a toaster oven or oven! It makes it taste so good!


Check out some healthy eating tips by Santa Cruz Organic to start your year off right.

Get your fruit on.

Even though the winter months are ahead, eating a variety of fruits and veggies is still the best way to get a wide range of nutrients. Organic fruit is the first ingredient in Santa Cruz Organic Fruit Spreads, making it a better-for-you topping option. And personally, I've gotten to lo…

Udderly Naked - Excellent Beauty Care Items to Add to Your Regimen [Review + Giveaway]

Looking for a natural product to add to your beauty regimen? Well, I think you should consider Udderly Naked. They makes their soaps and other skin care products using real goat's milk. They even have an actual FARM, how cool is that?

Well I had the chance to try out a couple of items. First, I tried out their Udderly Naked Goat Milk made from their very own goat milk fresh from their farm. I loved that! I tried out the Citrus Basil lotion. It definitely had a fresh green scent to the lotion. I actually really enjoyed this lotion and used this on my face. It blended with my skin nicely and gave it a lovely glow. This is the kind of lotion I could imagine purchasing again because it wasn't irritating to my skin, which is saying a lot because it's fairly sensitive. If you want to purchase a large bottle it's available at a great price of $10.00. Purchase now.

I also had the chance to try out their shampoo bar. Using a shampoo bar is a tad awkward to me, because I have lon…

Your Menu Can Give Your Restaurant Pizazz

I love to eat out. I've got a list of favorite places that I go to all the time and I'm always game to try a new eatery. My top priority is the food. If I'm happy with the selection, the preparation, and the presentation, then I'm happy with the restaurant. Lately, I've been paying more attention to what I see when I walk into a dining establishment. I've made mental notes about my standby restaurants and a my latest discoveries. Besides the food, I've noticed the atmosphere and d├ęcor. I've figured out one more thing that can move a restaurant to the top of my personal list. It's the menus.

The Menu Should Grab Your Attention

A good restaurant is going to invest in menus. If the owners don't care about how their menus look, it suggests that they don't care that much about their business. On the flip side, putting time and money into menu covers can really make a difference for their guests. As I took a closer look at all of the m…
