The New Primal Jerky and Sticks Review

The New Primal: Jerky and Sticks Review

I am not going to lie, if I have the opportunity to review jerky or a meat stick, I generally jump at the chance. I have discovered that there is nothing better than having a infusion of protein during the day. Generally, it is filling and tides me over until dinner in the evening.

When I was approached to review The New Primal and their jerky and meat stick assortment, I was intrigued since they have some flavors I had not seen before.

Nellie’s All Natural: Dryer Balls, Wash Soda and Melon Soap Review

Nellie’s All Natural: Dryer Balls, Wash Soda and Melon Soap Review + Giveaway

When I shop for products one of the first things that I look for is packaging. This past year my father went to the fair and picked up the cutest tin’s that were filled with laundry supplies.

The packaging was lighter colors, and the one I saw was shaped like a washing machine. The tin had a slit at the top, which makes the item the perfect piggy bank once the product inside is used.

I was interested in what the company was, and how in this disposable world, they decided to use tin packaging. The company was Nellie’s All-Natural and they were generous to send us a couple items for review.

Best Bed Under $1000

Nectar Sleep provided me with compensation in exchange for this sponsored blog post. This post does contain affiliate links, but all opinions expressed here are my own

If there is one thing that I have always valued, it is my sleep. From the time I can remember I have loved sleep and can get upwards of 12 hours at times. Sleep and I get along, and we get along well.

Sadly for my husband the opposite is true – he is lucky to get 2 hours in a row on any given night. The disparity in our sleep patterns are obvious and at times frustrating, I have begun the process of researching mattresses that are good for me, yet will also work for my insomniac spouse.

Oogie’s Gourmet Popcorn Review

Oogie’s Gourmet Popcorn Review + Giveaway

As I have mentioned in the past we are a snack house – we love our snacks. The problem is that many times we are looking for a semi-heathy snack that we can eat without our hands being dirtied or full.

In our house, both of us spend many hours at our computers, and since we do not like to get our keyboards dirty, popcorn is often the snack that we end up choosing.

The problem is that since we eat so much popcorn, we grow tired of the flavors typically available. When I recently came across a company called Oogie’s Gourmet Popcorn and saw their collection, I was interested to give these different flavors a try.

A Month Later .. The 7 Items I am Still Thinking About From Expo West 2017
