Namaste Foods: Dark Chocolate Brownies, Italian Herb Bread Crumbs and Egg Replacer Review and Giveaway
In the infancy of my review blogging I had the opportunity to try many good companies.
When I attended the Gluten Free and Allergen Friendly Expo in San Diego I had the opportunity to meet the people behind the company that I had the chance to review in those early days.
One of my favorite things is to see companies expand their product lines and offer a wide selection of products in their respective categories.
Namaste Foods has a line of foods that are free from the top 8 allergens typically found in other foods and contain no wheat, no gluten, no corn, no soy, no potatoes, no dairy, no casein, no peanuts or tree nuts.
One of my favorite local deli’s is Miltons in Del Mar – the soup, the sandwiches, the deserts and every piece in between is tasty and delicious.
When I originally heard that they also have a craft baking division I was excited to bring home that Milton’s goodness. Milton’s has continued the tasty tradition with the Milton’s Gluten Free Baked Chipsthat are crispy as well as tasty!
Ever since I was a kid I have had issues with my hair tangling. One of my most dreaded moments was when I needed to get the tangles out of my hair. I would cry and moan and groan. There would be times that I would use a detangler, and after half the bottle my hair would be a little better than when I started.
When I saw that Luseta Beauty’s Tangle Free Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner I wanted to see if this would help my chronically tangles hair.
Masala Pop: Indian Spiced Popcorn Review + Giveaway
Often times my review items find their way to me by pure coincidence and other ones are by chance. When I heard that a company I have worked with in the past now is working with an Indian Spiced Popcorn company I was intrigued.
My sister in law is married to a French-Morrocan man, and thus my nieces and nephews are adept and used to the Indian spices. Since our household is not as familiar with these, I decided to seize on this opportunity in hopes that I would be able to recommend something yummy to my extended family. The company I was hoping to share was Masala Pop which makes an Indian inspired line of Masala popcorn’s.
If there is one thing I really love, it is a comfortable bed spread. Many years ago when I was young I would always change my comforter set. What this ultimately did was give me quite a collection of blankets and sheets for my friends to use when I hosted slumber parties.
Now that I have my own house, I am always finding the need for blankets and such. I still love to change my bed spread but it is much longer between upgrades than when I was young.
Recently I began the process of redoing our master bedrooms bedding. The process started with new pillows, than sheets and now the next element has arrived – the Croscill Crestwood Quilt with Shams.
Ever since I was young, I have been a planner. One of my favorite gifts were day planners and calendars. Each time I received a new planner or calendar I would spend the next couple hours making note of important birthdays, events and important school dates.
Now that I am older, I still love planners but like them to be a little more than just dates and space to write events. Ideally, a planner can help me plan, but also inspire me to think bigger, and set goals.
As the blog grows, I find my dreams growing so this year I decided that it was time I get a planner that will not only make note of dates, but also give me a place to brainstorm and dream. When I began looking for the perfect planner I came across the Think Time Journal Planner.
Since becoming a blogger I find that I wear my phone battery down more often than not. This is not a new problem, as I have always let my battery practically die before I will charge it. As I have mentioned in previous reviews of this kind, it has been suggested to me over the years that a portable battery of some brand would serve me well.
As luck and fate tend to align in my life, when I recently attended the Natural Products Expo I had the need for a battery. I had planned ahead and pre-charged a new EasyAcc’s 13000MAH Power Bank that I had gotten for review.
Dr. Jacobs Naturals: Sweet Tea Tree Castile Liquid Soap Review + Giveaway
One of the most versatile soap’s that is versatile and simple is castile soap. Last year I came across a company called Dr. Jacobs Naturals and their line of castile based soaps. I had the opportunity to begin reviewing this castile soap company this time last year, and have loved each product I have received. Continue reading →
Milton’s Craft Bakers: Gourmet and Snack Cracker Review & Giveaway
As I have mentioned in the past, I get to sample, try and attend many things as a blogger. A couple of weeks back I went to the Gluten-Free Allergen Friendly Expo here in San Diego and I had the opportunity to see one of my favorite local brands – Milton’s Craft Bakers.
The Milton’s Craft Baker crew is about 10 minutes from my house and since I am such a fan of support of local companies, I was happy to see them. Our path’s crossed again at the Natural Product Expo, and I felt it was the “blogiverse” telling me that I had to review their gourmet and snack crackers.
Socks for Spring – 3 Month Subscription – Sock Club Giveaway – 2017
Traditionally spring is know as a time to clean and organize. Each year I take this opportunity to clean and prepare. I my systems of organization. One task that I take on each year is my closet, and the items contained therein. Most of the items that hang are easy, since I turn hangers the opposite direction and if at the time of cleaning, I have not worn then I know with just a glance.
The most difficult is my sock collection, since I tend to stop matching pairs sometime mid September. The process is easy for the most part and involves me putting the sock on the bed, and searching for it’s mate. The best part about this is that I generally am able to combine pairs and find socks that I have not worn in a while.
Since we all like an easier way to get matched socks minus the cleaning, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to give one reader a 3 month subscription to SockClub
