Trusource Protein & Energy powder supplement

Trusource Protein + Energy supplements are created to maintain an active lifestyle. With Trusource you can not only add boost of protein to your morning routine but get a jolt of naturally sourced caffeine with cafe' like beverages that offer intense flavor in the comfort of your own home! 

When is the best time to take protein ? 

Before Exercise make sure to consume protein if you are running, cycling, or endurance training which aids in sparing the muscle tissue from an excessive breakdown . The muscle is broken down when you are exercising and will be built back up during the resting phase . 

After Exercise 

the muscle tissue has been broken down during exercise which will then be built back up again with rest and with the help of amino acids that are found in protein. When you consume protein within an hour of any form of exercise it can help with the process of recovery.

Chocolate Mocha:

Wake up your morning with TruSource Chocolate Mocha protein powder supplement that offers an intense creamy chocolate flavor with bold roasted coffee mixed right in ! 

I loved the creamy chocolate flavor with the intense boldness from the mocha it was rich and super delicious as a protein shake mixed with some ice and milk in the blender creating one tasty treat! 

Vanilla Chai:

I am a huge fan of chai flavored drinks and this was amazing! The vanilla was smooth and creamy along with the right amount of chai spices to warm me up with on a cold Winter day!

  • Chocolate Mocha

It all began in 1986 with Vernon J.

Honey Bunches of Oats has now over 12 different varieties to choose from!

  • New Honey Bunches of Oats with real strawberries 

As a little girl I loved cereal especially Honey Bunches of Oats! There was just something about getting a heaping spoonful into your mouth of crunchy oat clusters sprinkled with warm cinnamon that was just so tasty not to mention smelled wonderful like cookies baked fresh from the oven!

I had the pleasure through Influenster to try out Honey Bunches of Oats new product that's made with real strawberries I just had to taste it who could resist the sweetness of honey with crunchy oat clusters  with  strawberries?

First you get the crunch from the oat clusters with a touch of sweet from the honey then the tart strawberries that adds great flavor .
I loved the crunchy oat clusters in the Honey Bunches of Oats cereal with real strawberries they were sweet but not too sweet with a touch of honey that balanced out the tart strawberries.

Herbal Essences Bio:Renew Bzzagent Campaign

I'm a Bzzagent which is if you haven't heard of it is a word of mouth campaign where you get to try out all sorts of fun and interesting new products to review for testing purposes and then share what you thought about them and help spread the word. I love being a Bzzagent and have been a member for quite sometime now and sampled all sorts of products from beauty products to food.

I was chosen to sample a new shampoo and conditioner from Herbal Essences and I couldn't wait t try it out. For as long as I could remember I have been a huge fan of their products each one smells wonderful whether it's floral or beachy like coconut just like their new one here that I picked to try out!

I absolutely love the scent of coconuts it's sweet yet nutty and smells like a tropical vacation, plus it is so relaxing and smells great after washing.

With the new Herbal Essences Bio: Renew Hydrate Coconut Milk it is made up of 

  • antioxidants
  • aloe
  • sea kelp
Herbal Essences Bio: Renew contains no 

  • Gluten
  • Colorants
  • or parabens 
Herbal Essences with Bio: Renew helps purify and protect hair creating soft silky smooth shiny hair making it more easy to manage. 

Before I began using Herbal Essences Bio: Renew in Hydrating Coconut Milk my hair was dry, frizzy looking and so I put it to the test. 

I absolutely loved the scent that it had to offer with the tropical scent of coconut reminding me of summertime at the beach with my toes in the sand where it's nice and warm. I squeezed the shampoo onto my palm and worked up a lather then ran it through my hair massaging deeply, noticing right away that my hair was becoming more silkier and easy to manage. Then I followed with the conditioner which relaxed my hair and was much easier to brush after blow drying it. 

Here are the flawless shiny results of washing my hair with the new Bio: Renew Herbal Essences Hydrate Coconut Milk Shampoo & Conditioner ! 

Not only am I am in love with the sweet nutty coconut aroma but am pleased with my hair in how it both looks and feels it's silky to the touch, much more easier to brush and it doesn't appear dry! 

Look for New Herbal Essences Bio: Renew at your nearest retailer!
