ActivewearUSA Review!

Image
As far as I can remember I never liked any physical activity because I was overweight and didn't like to go walking, ride a bike, run or even gym at school. You name it I didn't want to do it.
Until now that is because I lead a more active lifestyle by walking, working out,running and eating healthier and have lost 100 pounds because of it!

I don't know about you but it's the little things that can make me want to get out there and move such as sporting a new outfit such as this one I received for review from ActivewearUSA ! Founded with a goal to offer with high performance stylish footwear, activewear, accessories for women with over 110 different brands that are perfect for fitness, workouts, kickboxing, Zumba, yoga and most importantly you will feel great and look oh so fabulous while working out!

Bolthousefarms: seasonal drinks review!

Image
When I came across  Bolthousefarms website and stumbled upon their holiday nog I just knew I had to try it!
As a kid I always loved the famous drink egg nog around the holidays !
It was creamy, delicious and full of flavor but also full of fat but oh no not this brand!
I was blown away when I opened the package today and found not only their holiday nog but their other two seasonal flavors as well!

I couldn't wait to try it out to see if it tasted similar to the full fat version and because these drinks are only around for a limited time only for the holidays!
Holiday nog:
Made with low fat milk and Super delicious, tasted just like the eggnog from my childhood but better! worked great in a holiday nog smoothie which is pictured above!It was thick, creamy, gave it a bit of a kick to it which was amazingly scrumptious! The best of all if your not a smoothie person you could serve it up with some baked cookies, pie, dinner or even add a bit of brandy to heat things up!

GoodKarmaFoods: Flax Milk Review

Image
I love flax seeds in products such as cereal, granola but have never tried flax milk.
So when I came across GoodKarma flax milk on the web I just knew I had to try it for review!
I was sent coupons to pick up some milks of my choice at the store.
I went from store to store in search of the milk and finally happened upon it at my local stop & shop.
I thought to myself it must be a good milk because there were only two left on the shelf and I quickly scooped them up and put them into my carriage.
I just couldn't wait to try it, especially hearing all the healthy facts about their milk plus the benefits of flax!

Benefits:
 Natural, Lactose Free, Gluten Free, Non Dairy, Trans Fat Free, Soy Free, Allergen Free, Vegan, Supports Green Farming, Omega-3s

Make a stand Lemon-aid Review!

Image
My all time favorite drink in the summer time is lemonade!
It's so refreshing and tasty especially when the temperature is at it's all time high, but is way too sugary.
So when I came across Make a Stand  on the web I just had to try them out!
I was then sent two flavors for review on my blog!
I like how the bottles have an old fashion look to them and also that they have cute little charms around the bottles!

They make the perfect gift!

One is original and the other is a ginger lemonade with Yerba mate that has a kick to it !
First off let me tell you about how their company began.
What is make a stand?
Eight year old Vivienne Harr made a stand and set up lemonade in Marin county California every day for 365 days straight to end child slavery.
World stood her ground and that's  when her lemon-aid was bottled.
Where does the money go?
She has donated over $100,000 to nonprofits so far on the front lines of putting an end to child slavery in California and around the world.

KarmaOrganics Spa Review!

Image
I love to paint my toenails once in awhile, not only does it add some color to my nails but it's also nice to just kick back and pamper yourself.
 When I was browsing on their website and saw all the beautiful colors of nail polishes I just knew I had to review them especially when I came across the pretty purple one! 

How awesome that I got to pick my own products for this review to!

I ended up picking out the purple shade which actually is called Another Beautiful Day in LA, a clear coat and also a lavender polish remover!

Nail polish remover: made with soybean oil and lavender. What's so unique about this nail polish remover is that it doesn't offer an overpowering smell as soon as you twist the cap off like other brands do. I love the smell to it too! Gently dab some remover onto a cotton ball or even tissue and rub it ever so slightly on your nail and you'll have clean nails before applying a different shade of polish that your heart desires.

Vitamin Squeeze black cherry Swaggable sample!

Image
I received another great sample from Swaggable today!
Sometimes I feel like I'm running low on energy and what great way to give me a boost with a bottle of water and just a squirt of black cherry flavor vitamin squeeze!
The taste is amazing and to me it tasted just like a cherry Popsicle! 
I love how it's a safe drink mix other than those other products that help boost our energy which clearly we don't need.
Squeezable Facts:All naturalNo artificial sweetenersNo preservatives Gluten freeGood source of fiberEasy to useFantastic fruity flavor 
Don't mix with alcoholNot for use of childrenDon't use too much!

NatraCare Organic & natural feminine care Review!

Image
Ok, now this review is a bit different from all my others, because they are feminine care products. 

I was sent these items for review and couldn't wait to try them out to see if they are better and different from the average products we all know and use.

Natural Panty liners:
One thing I hate sometimes when I wear panty liners or even pads is that they don't stay in place in underwear especially during the night, which as we all ladies know is uncomfortable.I liked how they didn't shift, they didn't offer any perfume smell to them and also I felt cleaner and more confident in wearing them for the time of the month.
Gynecologist advise women to wear all natural,panty liners to in fact reduce the contact of chlorine bleaches, synthetics and superabsorbents that are made with petrochemicals.  
What makes natracare  feminine products different:All naturalParable freeChlorine freeClinically testedNo synthetic preservatives Alcohol freeBiodegradable 100% cottonPerfume free
