Serving good quality ice cream since 1932!

Being Halloween and all I had to treat myself to something indulgent and sweet and what's better than Pierre's ice cream
That's right I was sent some of Pierre's ice cream for review and it showed up on Halloween!! Perfect Halloween gift to me! 
I was ecstatic when I opened the box whoa, creamy goodness and I couldn't wait to crack open a pint and try it! 
They have a wide assortment of flavors such as:
Pierre's hola! fruta: (Premium all natural fruit sherbet) Black cherry lemon Piña colada:
Now I've tried a pineapple sherbet before but never piña colada and wow I'm glad I have because it's fruity, creamy, full of delicious flavor and you can blend it up in a smoothie!

Shakeology Review!

Image
All of you may know that I have been on a mission to lose weight and have been very successful at it!
I was always overweight and almost two years ago I made a life changing choice and joined curves gym!
It was the best choice I've ever made because not only did it make me lose weight but it made me look and feel so much better about myself too.
I have lost a total of 94 pounds and I'm so proud, who would have thought that healthy eating and exercise could do so much!
Your probably thinking how does she do it?
Does she get sick of eating the same thing?
Truth is I change it up a bit so I'm not eating the same thing day after day, even with exercising!
I was ecstatic when I was contacted by Sheryl Plouffe because she is an extraordinary fitness business expert and sent me some of these delicious shakes by Shakeology to try out!


I absolutely love smoothies and for quite sometime I've been drinking them for breakfast, so when I was sent the samples I couldn't wait to try the…

Truvia Crowdtap Sampling

Image
I absolutely love coffee and when I found out that I would be receiving Truvia samples from crowdtap I couldn't wait to give them a try because I don't take my coffee plain I love to  at least sweeten it up with just a bit of sugar, some milk or a drizzle of caramel. It makes the perfect cup of coffee!
Here's a shot of the Truvia samples I received from the crowdtap sampling! Time to replace sugar and make a #sweetswitch with Truvia!
Now for my mom though whom I shared my Truvia samples with takes her coffee with cream and no sugar substitutes in it at all but made her try some anyway!
Here's a shot of the coffee as soon as it started dripping from the Keurig!
Moms thoughts:
She thought it was surprisingly good not too sugary and offered the right amount of sweetness to the cup of coffee!
My thoughts: Not too sweet which was good because some sugar substitutes are either too sugary or have a weird metallic taste to them, will works great in my favorite drink which is smoothies,…

Green Mountain coffee fair trade bzzagent campaign!

Image
I absolutely love coffee and was super psyched when I got into this bzzagent campaign!
You ever have a cup of coffee that just doesn't taste right!?
Just makes you want to pour it out and start all over, whether it be the sweetener you use for the coffee, cream or the flavor of the coffee itself it can make your cup of coffee dreadful!
Green Mountain coffee is the best ever and you don't have to go to a fancy coffee shop to get it either, you can make it in the comfort of your own home and enjoy it in front of the fireplace or even outside!
I was sent three continent blend for this campaign and couldn't wait to try it, hello it's coffee and I love it!

You can even add a dollop of whip cream and a swirl of caramel if you'd like or some cream or even milk! 

Great coffee, was a bit stronger than I'm used to but it tasted very good along with some vanilla almond milk and a dusting of Truvia!
Tastes great no matter what you use in it!

Starkist Tuna Creations Crowdtap Sampling

Image
I have been a member of this site called crowdtap for quite sometime now and love it! 
For doing certain tasks we earn gift cards or even sampling opportunities to try out cool products from certain brands!
I was ecstatic when I got to sample starkist ranch flavored tuna through crowdtap, I just couldn't wait to give it a try.
I love ranch flavored products but never tried ranch tuna before so I was thinking up different ways that I could use the tuna from my sampling.
You can either use it on a sandwich, crackers, or on a salad like I did!
I loved the taste of it wasn't overall fishy or a strong ranch flavor which was fantastic and worked perfectly in my salad!
Of course I had to dish it up with some Mac and cheese!

Naturally Fresh Deodorant Crystal Review and Giveaway!

Image
Since I made changes to my lifestyle and am more active with working out and walking I need a product that will last through out the day or workouts.
We all do it while working out and at times it can be gross and a bit embarrassing especially when your deodorant doesn't last so you try out a different product to take care of the problem whether it be odor or wetness.
Have you ever heard the ingredients on the back of some deodorants ?
You might want to think of using one that's more safe especially without aluminum, they can penetrate the skin without even knowing it.
I've tried so many deodorants in my lifetime whether it's gel, roll on or a solid stick to prevent odor from liquid awesome sweat or to keep me fresh and dry, it can be a bit pricey but don't you want a decoder ant brand you can trust rather than wearing one that doesn't do it's job!?
I've found these wonderful products that are aluminum free from NaturallyFresh and was sent them for a review.

Peanut Principle Review!

Image
Looking for a delicious snack that's not only good for you but is full of protein, especially after an intense workout!?
Peanut butter is nutty, full of flavor and a great source of protein and comes in many flavors!
I used to not eat it for a while due to high fat content but if you eat it in moderation it's not so bad and it's a healthy fat.
Anyways let's get on with the review!
When I saw all of the yummy different peanut butters that Peanut Principle had to offer I just had to try them out!
Shannon and joe have been in the nut business for 15 years and they make their nut butters with the highest quality of ingredients.
Dry roasted and oh so delicious!
They have all sorts of flavors and they go along great with anything imaginable!
Works well with: Rice cakes Smoothies As a frosting  Crackers Bagels Fruits such as bananas and apples And more!!
