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…

5 Recipes Made with Gluten-Free Bagels

When I think of bagels, I don't usually think of things I can make with them outside of my usual go to stuff, like cheese melts, avocado toast and toasted bagel and peanut butter. 
But there are some recipes that take bagels to the next level and I came across some created by "The Greater Knead" bagel company and I absolutely had to share these with you. And I had the chance to try out some of their bagels, but more on that later. First, the tasty bagel goodness.
The Bagel Crumble.

To make this, you take their chocolate bagel (oh yes, I said chocolate), a little oil, and cinnamon and some honey. And from there you chop it up and bake it and cover it with tastiness and put it over ice cream. Just check out this recipe and you'll see why you want it.

If there is anyone out there reading this that remembers how yummy french toast was pre-gluten-free days, I think you should check out this …

What To Do When You Stuck in a Snack Rut [Giveaway Inside!]

Sometimes you can easily get in a rut with food. I know I get that way. The same products are in the store, you have the same lunch ideas, you buy the same snacks, the same everything. I know that it actually can be hard to step outside my comfort zone and try something new.

So that's when subscription boxes can help. It's an excellent way of finding new things to try, getting some extra snacks, and opening up your horizon to new foods. Whether you are celiac or gluten-intolerant or simply eat gluten-free by choice, it's time to broaden those horizons!
