Live Clean: Fresh Water Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner Review

Live Clean: Fresh Water Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner Review + Giveaway

 

Being a San Diego resident, if there is one thing that we do not see often it is rain, which can be a downside. The smell after a fresh rain is second to none and leaves the ground and the area around smelling fresh and clean.

One of my favorite scents is rain/fresh water. When the scent is able to be bottled up and put into a shampoo and conditioner, than you have a clear scent winner. Since I am such a “Fresh” fan I was curious if the the Live Clean: Fresh Water Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner would meet the scent expectations i had. I will give you a hint – it did!

Buffalo Range: All Natural Buffalo Treats Review

Buffalo Range: All Natural Buffalo Rawhide Treats Review & Giveaway

As a pet guardian I am a firm believer that as “guardians” it is our job to make our pets have the best life possible. This could be from giving them attention when they want it, giving them the best food available or making sure the treats they have are pure.

As much as we love our pets, we are unable to communicate with them. Due to this we are responsible for making their food decisions for them. When I look for treats, my goal is to give them the most pure products with ingredients I can pronounce.

When I learned about the new Buffalo Range All Natural Buffalo Rawhide Treats I knew that I wanted Meadow to have the opportunity to try them since I had read that they were natural and did not contain preservatives or fillers.

Schwarzkopf Gliss Hair Repair: Color Guard Shampoo & Conditioner Review

Keep Your Color With Schwarzkopf Color Guard Shampoo and Conditioner – Review and Giveaway

I remember the day it happened. It was a sunny day and not a cloud in the sky. Despite the lack of clouds above, As I do each morning, I went to brush my hair and discovered that the day I had been dreading was finally here – my first grey hair appeared.

As memorable as this moment was, it was not a complete surprise since I had long suspected that I would gray earlier than most of my peers. Since I had always had this suspicion I began to color my hair while I was still a teen.

One problem I have always encountered when I color my hair is that the color tends to fade and lighten much earlier than I would like. Also, since I recently colored my hair, it was the ideal time to give the new Schwarzkopf Gliss Color Guard Shampoo and Conditioner a try.

Summer Salads at Wendys

Summer Salads at Wendy’s & Gift Card Giveaway

We all know the logo – the girl with pigtails with the collared shirt – she is Wendy. Wendy is the ubiquitous mascot to this international fast food restaurant. Since I was a young girl, I not only knew the logo but also knew the exits that they were located on frequently traveled routes. When I was young my father would enjoy stopping here, while I found the food not as tasty as other burger places, plus I wanted my toy in my meal. As I have gotten older and my tastes change, I have come to enjoy Wendy’s in a way I could not appreciate when I was young.

A couple of weeks ago I was watching television and saw advertisements for a new salad with strawberries and mangos. I was curious how this fruity flavor would play against the lettuce and chicken.

I decided to reach out and within a couple weeks I was given the opportunity to sample Wendy’s Summer Salads as well as thier other salads and three seasonal drinks that use Honest Tropical Green Tea as a base.

PupBox: 9 Month Old Box Review

PupBox: 9 Month Old Box Review + Box Giveaway

When I was young we adopted a dog and while I tired puppy raising I was young and did not know what I was doing. I had little guidance, and due to my age, I was practically being raised with my puppy.

As pet guardians, we want to do the best for our pets and give them the best life we can. The downside is that we do not speak puppy and knowing what they need or want at each stage of their lives can be difficult.

As regular readers know, we are Shark Tank fans, and last year I saw a company featured that focuses on that special time in your puppies life. The PupBox Subscription Box is a monthly box tailored to the age and developmental stage your puppy is at.

Chewy Influencer: July 2017 – Fresh Step Litter

Fresh Step Hawaiian Aloha Scoopable Litter Review

I am so excited to announce that we are Chewy.com Influencers! What this means is that each month Chewy.com sends us an email with a selection of items that are for dogs, cats and small animals (birds and hamsters) for review. The items range from food, snacks, and supplies needed for pet guardianship. Each month I will bring you a different product that Maggee and Murfee will personally try out.

I was super excited to not only be accepted but then to have the chance to pick an item out for Maggee and Murfee this month. As I scrolled down the email, one item caught my eye – Fresh Step Cat Litter.

Cat Litter is a product that we always need and is always used. Since my cats are highly adaptable I had no hesitation with this litter change, since the brands we normally used would be different than this new one. I chose the Fresh Step Hawaiian Aloha Scoopable Litter and eagerly waited for the ubiquitous Chewy.com blue logo box.

OCHO Organic Candy Review

OCHO: Organic Chocolate Candy Review + Giveaway

When I think of decadent and delicious sweets, the first thing that comes to mind is Chocolate. Chocolate is versatile and the options for additions are endless.

Throughout my years, when I go to the store, I always look at the chocolate offerings at the checkout, but the quality seems to be decreasing as time goes on. I have been wanting a high quality chocolate bar that I can feel good about eating.

A couple of months ago I had the opportunity to try Ocho Candy when I completed a survey about their new packaging. I was so impressed with this sample that I wanted to try the rest of the chocolate available.

JC’s Pie Bites: Caramel Turtle + S’mores Coated Truffles Review

JC’s Pie Bites: Caramel Turtle and S’mores Coated Truffles Review + Giveaway

It is safe to say that chocolate is one of my favorite flavors of all time – anything is good with chocolate.

Up until a couple of years ago, I was not as open to trying something new, and was happy with my routine. Once I began to review, I began to see my narrow thought was simply not feasible. Over the past couple years i have had the opportunity to try so many awesome product. In fact, it is now my favorite thing to do for the blog – taste test.

There is one item that I have wanted to try but just have not have the opportunity until now. One of the first things i look for when reviewing is a variety of tasty flavors and with JC’s Pie Bites that is what I was given.

Annie B’s Popcorn and Caramel Review

Annie B’s: Popcorn + Caramel Review

When I think back on my teen years, the one thing I always remember was being limited on food I could eat for 6 years. For those 6 years, I wore braces. The instructions that you are given when you get braces is to not eat anything that could dislodge or get stuck in your teeth.

The thing that I missed the most during that time was caramel and popcorn. Now as an adult with braces no more, I am free to eat what I want without worry of repercussions.

Given that feeling it should be no surprise that when I had the opportunity to review some popcorn and caramel from Annie B’s I had very little hesitation.
