FabFitFun

You guys know I love my FabFitFun boxes! They introduce me to some amazing products that I would not find other wise. The Spring 2018 box was no different!

The Rachel Pally clutch is the perfect pop of color for any outfit. I love to wear black, grey and white so my accessories are my opportunity to be fun. This clutch is reversible, soft, large enough to carry everything you need and beautiful. The protective storage bag is great to keep it in perfect condition for year and years of use.

The Free People eye mask is so relaxing. I have never used a sleep mask before but it was such a change I love using it now. It is thick and full of cushion, the inside is silky smooth and the added amount of pressure helps me fall asleep fast.

I enjoy burning candles in my house year round, the smells and style make my house more homey. This candle was beautiful to display in the gold container. I didn’t get much sent out of it but I have an open floor plan and I think if I paired it with a matching one it would have been perfect. It is made of all natural ingredients too so there aren’t chemicals just floating up in your home.

You know I love a good workout, everyday, so this roller is perfect for relieving the muscle pain. The handles make it easy to use anywhere on your body. I use it mostly on my legs because I work them hard and this really helps to reduce the pain and restore my muscles. If you work out regularly you need one!

I have never used a lip mask before so I was excited to try these out. They are collagen infused for moisture and plumping. I would pop these on after my evening shower, my husband thought they looked terrible, but they worked! My lips felt soft and smooth after wearing. I am not sure if they plumped them up but I used them more for the moisture benefit anyway.

The Dermelect Cosmeceuticals nail polish was one of my favorites from the box. I bite my nails, terrible habit, and they are weak and rigid. This polish filled them in and gave a subtle pink shine so they looked great too. I am wearing it right now on my fingers and toes. I highly recommend this for any nails that need some help.

This box also had the ISH pallet in it. I love the variety of colors, they went on smooth and the consistency is perfect for mixing to get some additional personalized colors. The small Love bracelet is the perfect addition to my jewelry collection. I love smaller pieces I can mix together with others and yellow gold is my favorite.

My summer box is on it’s way and I can’t wait to share it with you. If you have questions about where to get these products or need additional information about them comment or message. I will post links for each product soon!

Face Mask

I am always trying new skin products because I really haven’t found something I like to use all the time. I had a go to brand in high school but things have changed from then so I like to try news ones.

The Whish Renewing mud Mask was something I started using a few weeks ago and I can see a difference. It is so quick to use and the benefits are seen right away. Simply apply a think layer to your face, avoiding eyes, nose and mouth, leave on for 15 seconds the first time building up to 2 minutes. Then wipe off with a wash cloth in a circular motion for exfoliating. Done! (use 1-2 times a week) It gently exfoliates and eliminates dead skin revealing smoother more even skin.

I really like it because it is paraben free, sulfate free, phthalate free, DEA & TEA free and petrochemical free, naturally sourced and organic ingredients!

Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Birds Eye Steamfresh

My sister recommended the Protein Blend Birds Eye Steamfresh and boy was she right. It is quick and delicious. PLUS packed with protein, vitamins and minerals.

It’s in the freezer section of your local grocery store. Only 4 1/2 minutes in the microwave and you have a perfect side dish or meal on it’s own. I grilled some chicken to add to mine for a perfect quick week night meal.

Not all processed foods are bad, you just need to read the label and make sure what is in the package is real food. Not just chemicals. Try this out and let me know what you think, it’s going to be in my freezer all the time.

Ningxia Red

I hadn’t heard of Ningxia Red until I began using Essential Oils a few weeks ago. (I will talk about the oils in a future post) I was very interested in learning more about his berry that makes the drink.

 

 

It is made of wolf-berry, pomegranate, blueberry and other super foods. **Fun fact there are more than 80 species of wolf-berry and each holds a different amount of antioxidants and nutritional value**

Benefits of the Wolf-Berry

  • Calcium
  • Magnesium
  • Vitamin B
  • Antioxidants

So what makes this little shot of juice even better than just this singular berry….

  • Whole food source of protein, vitamins, minerals & fiber
  • Essential oils of yuzu, lemon, tangerine & orange
  • Natural antioxidants
  • Highest levels of naturally occurring, age defying S-ORAC activity. Studies have shown that S-ORAC supports cardiovascular health, supports healthy immune function and supports healthy eye function
  • Natural detoxing
  • Natural form of energy

With all of this good stuff, the main question is how does it taste? I was hesitant the first time I drank it because I was worried about the taste, but it was delicious! I had no problem drinking it down in no time. These little packets are great because it is pre-packaged in the 2oz per day that you should drink. However you can buy a large bottle as well. Some people drink it just on it’s own or mix it into their bottle of water for an infused water flavor.

Try it and let me now what you think.

Ecoatheart Straws

I want to share with you a fun fact about straws, did you know it takes 7 year for 1 straw to decompose, yes 7 years. Now just think for a second how many straws you, as one person, use on a weekly basis. Now multiply that by millions and millions!

As I have gotten older I have really grown more and more aware of recycling and eco friendly products. Every week I have a heaping pile of recycling and my trash keeps decreasing.

Now when I get a drink I love a straw, just something about it. These are a great addition to my kitchen supplies. They are stainless steel, dishwasher safe and come in multiple sizes. I got the larger ones so I can use them with my smoothies and they are perfect. No issues with clogged straws or holes in them. I use them for everything now. They also come with a cleaning brush to make sure you can get the entire thing clean. They come in packs of 5.

You can get yours on Amazon.com a the link below.

Visit their website https://www.ecoatheart.com/ for more straw sizes and information.

Think about your straw the next time you grab one and remember how small that is and what a difference one person can make. PS I keep one in my purse for restaurants and on the go drinks 🙂

Thunderbird Real Food Bar

I was given a recommendation to try the Thunderbird Real Food Bar and it was a great one. I am very aware of what ingredients are in the foods I am eating because I don’t feel the need for all the chemicals when there are so many delicious real food options!

 

Another perfect thing about these, they are made right here in Austin, TX. I love local. I really liked that when I was in the store I could easily and quickly see what ingredients went into the bar, very few and all whole foods.

The first bar I had was the Texas Maple Pecan and it was delicious, I could eat those every day. I also tried the Almond Apricot Vanilla and this one was a little different for me. I loved the flavor but the chunks of Apricot were just too big for me. I would prefer it be smaller as I am not a huge Apricot fan. However all the taste was great. The texture is great, it’s soft but not chewy so nothing stuck in your teeth.

Its a perfect, healthy grab and go snack or breakfast. I definitely recommend you try them.

Bai

I drink mostly water, it is rare for me to have a different beverage, well other than coffee. Sometimes I just want something else, something with a little flavor, maybe carbonation and a sugary soda is just not for me. I stopped drinking them years ago and now if I have one I can only drink a small amount and the taste isn’t even the same.

I have been trying to find other options to enjoy that are better for me but still fun. I have seen a lot of people drinking these Bai drinks so I tried it out. I am still on the fence. I love the bottle, because that’s what matters right lol. The taste seemed a little dull and I felt like my mouth was really dry after drinking it, which usually happens to me after a sugary drink.

I took a poll on Instagram to see what other people thought since I was so back an forth about it. I was surprised by the results. It was a no until the last second when a few last minute votes flipped to more positive. Maybe I need to give it another shot, a different flavor maybe…thoughts?
