GlutenTox Home: Home Gluten Detection Kit Review

GlutenTox Home Gluten Detection Kit Review + Giveaway

I am going to let you in on a secret – when I began this blog I had never heard the words gluten free and Celiac Disease. As time passed I began reviewing more and more gluten-free items, as well as attending the Natural Products Expo for the past 3 years. I have not only learned about Celiac Disease, but also what items in food is dangerous and why it is so dangerous.

Since learning about this silent threat, I feel passionately about making sure that people are aware there are tasty gluten free options available. While not my original path, I am happy that the road led me here.

There are times that people with gluten sensitivities get homemade gifts from friends or family and it is unknown if the item is gluten free. Thankfully there is a home test that in about 10 minutes can tell you if there is gluten – the GlutenTox Home Test Kit.

Numi Organic Tea: Holistic Herbal Teas Review

Numi Organic Tea: Holistic Herbal Tea Review + Giveaway

One of the benefits of blogging is that I get to try products that I normally would not have the opportunity to sample. About a month ago I got to sample the 6 tea collection from Numi Tea. Had I not had this opportunity, I would not have tried these teas.

After a long day of writing, there is nothing more relaxing than a cup of tea. Recently I received a sampling of Numi Tea and their Organic Holistic Teasan Tea and was so impressed that I felt the need to do a formal review.

Pipcorn: Ghee Delicious Mini Popcorn Review

Best Binge Snacks While You Binge Watch and a Pipcorn Giveaway

I have a confession – I am awful at watching new movies. For the life of me I am not sure why I am so resistant, but I am. The most ironic part is that 9 times out of 10 I end up loving the movie or show, to then proceed to binge watch until I can no longer see clearly.

The most recent occurrence of this is with Game of Thrones. My husband had read the books and was eager to watch the series, but waited until I was willing to watch. Unfortunately 6 years has passed, and we are yet to watch, so he gave up hope and began spending lunches watching the series. As luck would have it, I finally got intrigued as to why this show was winning all the awards and began watching it on the weekends.

Generally we do anywhere from 5-7 episodes at a time, which makes the need for bingeing snacks that much more important. Here are my favorite snacks to binge on while I binge watch.

Stampin’ Up: Crafting Forever Stamp Set Review

How “Crafting Forever” Became A Part of My Life + a Giveaway

My crafting began when I was young with simple coloring, until the day I drove my father crazy. See I was a mere 16 years old and grounded, I was beyond bored and began to drive my father crazy. I was such a nightmare that despite being grounded I was told to go to the craft store and “buy a hobby”. My budget was my imagination and desire, and I was nothing if not overwhelmed.

After about an hour I chose a paint-by-number and a latch-hook kit, which I did finish and with those seeds, the love of crafting was born. I have been addicted ever since, and I can not imagine my life without the crafts.

When I saw the stamp set Crafting Forever Rubber Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up I saw reminders of those first crafts that began the crafting fire inside of me.

Catit: Flower Drinking Fountain Review

Catit – Flower Drinking Fountain Review + Giveaway

One of the things that I worry about as a pet guardian is that my cats get the water they need each day. Each day I switch their water so that it is fresh as possible, and each time Maggee knows and sits and waits for her fresh water bounty.

There are days that the water levels do not reduce as much as I would like, and on days like these there is little I can do other than let them have fresh faucet water. When I recently saw the Catit Flower Drinking Fountain I instantly thought that this would be a new and creative way for them to have the water they need while allowing them some fun!
