All Good Products: All Stars Set Review

All Good Products: All Stars Set Review & Giveaway

Let’s be honest, we are in a time when it is important that companies are environmentally responsible as well as being fiscally responsible. Many times companies donate a part of their profits, or sales to a cause that is relevant and important to their product category. When I attended the Natural Products Expo in March, one thing that I noticed was more companies are backing causes that are important to not only themselves, but their customers.

Being a resident of the coast, the ocean is something that I see and admire each day. There is no doubt that the ocean is as vast as it is large. Despite it’s massive size and power, it still needs us to take care and be aware of the issues that could potentially destroy it.

One company that I came across was All Good Products and their #ReefFriendly campaign. The basic idea of the #ReefFriendly Campaign is to spread awareness to make sure that the products on our skin, are also safe for the underwater reefs. With this added awareness I was curious to give their products a try, and see what makes them different.

RevaBlend: Blending On The Go Review

RevaBlend: Blending On The Go Review + Giveaway

One of my favorite treats is a banana smoothie or shake. The problem with this is that they can be a bite labor intensive and consistency is important.

The other thing that I have been doing recently is blending my eggs for my omelets and making my own salad dressings. I have discovered that my creations can be much tastier than the items that I can buy in the store.

The problem I encounter often is that my blender is big, and not the most compact or convenient. When I recently saw RevaBlend – Blending On The Go the first thing I noticed was that did not rely on electricity and has its own contained blades, I wondered it it would be easier then the current blender I was using. .

Some days the weather is so nice here that I take my laptop on the porch and I do my work. The only downside is that sometimes the silence can be echoing. It is those moments that I turn on music and it becomes my co-worker.

The downside to this is that the sound from my computer can be a little scratchy. When I recently got an email to review the EasyAcc’s Mini 2 Portable Bluetooth Speaker I was excited to see if this would improve my overall sound experience.
