One of my absolute favorite things is when a company that I love, releases a new product that will bolster their current product line. Since I go through an adequate amount of lip balm, and am always looking for one that moisturizes, protects and has a pleasant flavor. When I recently heard that BALMSHOT Lip Balm had released a new lip balm that contained raspberry, I knew I wanted to try it and it comes in one of the more unique packages I have seen, as well as being a base of beeswax SPF 15 lip balm.
Each time I go grocery shopping I see this colorful display that instantly takes me back to the days of going to the circus and having a treat. Popcornopolis has done a great job of making their packaging unique and bright and they have taken that creativity and made some new popcorn flavors that are sure to be new favorites!
Our 8 Favorite Products from Pure Growth Organic and a Giveaway
Before I began blogging, I did not give much thought to the idea of organic products and what was in my food. Since that time I have learned and have taken that education into each item I eat. When I recently received a box from the organizers of the Natural Products Expo I was pleased to see popcorn from Pure Growth Organic. As I began learning more about this company, I learned that organic items only make up for 5% of US food sales, and snacks are only 4-5% of that number.Continue reading →
As I get older, I have noticed that my hair is not as full as it was when I was young. My friends and family used to ask if my hair was put in an electrical socket because it was so frizzy and full. My hair seems to grow easily, but the thickness is missing and the braids are thinner than they used to be.
Recently I saw that Luseta Beauty released a new shampoo and conditioner with Biotin & Collagen and since i have had such great results with other Luseta shampoos and conditioners I wanted to see if the result would be the same this time around.
Back when I was a new blogger, one of the first companies that I had the opportunity to review was Mamma Chia. Mamma Chia happens to be headquartered in the town over from me, and I see their truck at sampling’s around town.
Since that first review, I have seen them at the Natural Products Expo as well at my local stores. This past year at the Natural Products Expo I hade opportunity to try Mamma Chia‘s new flavors of the Chia Vitaliity Beverages.

Auromere: Pre-Shampoo Conditioner and Neem Plus 5 Shampoo Review + Giveaway
A couple of years ago I met a company at Expo West – Auromere – the “Ayurveda people”, I was recently given the opportunity to review a full size bottle of pre-shampoo and shampoo. I was eager to use a pre-shampoo to clean my hair of the impurities. At the time the booth was busy and I was halted by the wonderful smelling products that included not only personal care items such as incense, toothpaste’s and shampoo, just to name a few.
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.
