Fran's Chocolates - Delectable Treats to Treat Yourself



The holidays may be over, but I can't help but realize that it is never a bad time for chocolate. Right, everyone? And I came across some amazing chocolate that I just cannot wait to tell you about!

It's called Fran's Chocolates. Oh my, you guys. Oh my. These chocolates, originally crafted by master chocolatier Fran Bigelow were created with an artists technique when considering the flavor which is an intense sensory experience. I love reading the history of this chocolate creator and so go on and check out the story of how she came to be so good at what she does - Read Fran's Story.

I had the chance to try out some of Fran's Chocolates bars! And you know what? They. Were. Amazing. The first kind I tried reminded me a bit of a superior version of an Almond Joy. It's called their Coconut Gold Bars. They are made with coconut, almonds and covered in chocolate. It's so flavorful and rich tasting! Their coconut is blended with white chocolate to make it a little extra sweet and rich. It's just definitely gourmet. Purchase Now.

The other kind I got to try was their Almond Gold Bars. These reminded me of a gourmet, far superior version of a Snickers actually. It's made with chocolate, rich caramel, and dark chocolate. They were so good! It was such a treat to have this - especially having something that reminds me of a candy from childhood but EVEN BETTER! Purchase these now too. And then the Macadamia Gold Bars are made with caramel, dark chocolate and macadamia nuts. And these were amazing too! I love macadamia nuts already because they are a buttery sweet nut and so to add these to candy? Absolutely amazing. Purchase now.

Another thing that I love about this chocolate is that these gold bars are actually pretty decently sized and I enjoyed about two at one time and you know? That was enough for me! They are really rich and I was able to eagerly share with my family!

For six bars, they run about $30 or so on their website. And if you are considering a gift this would be something I think you should consider. It's such good chocolate!

I received this in exchange for my honest review.

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 …
