Annmarie Skincare Antioxidant Lip Balm

Image
It all began with two well known video bloggers when asked what they used as a kin care product. 

They found the solution to good skin care  inside of their own cabinets one day creating a healthier product with a blend of natural and organic ingredients after trying out many of those other brand names on the market but were shocked when they didn't work so Annmarie and Kevin created their very own line of skin care products.

They got to work and began searching for skin care duplicators but realized that the ingredients added weren't added to the packaging labels.

Then Annmarie met Bunnie , an environment-friendly chemist and the rest was history bringing together a line of pure, natural and organic products Annmarie Gianni Skin Care was born!

Later on in 2011 both Kevin and Annmarie were on a mission to create staff to help spread the word like wildfire about their line of products.

I have tried all kinds of wonderful products from Annmarie Skincare and loved them not only becaus…

Leaner Creamer

Image
Leaner Creamer is a coffee creamer company that is owned by family in the heart of Los Angeles, California to provide the world with not only a healthier option to creamers but one that is deliciously creamy in each cup of coffee without any chemicals or high in fat like those other brands.
It all began when Jonathon Co-Founder of Leaner Creamer realized his co-workers pouring endless amounts of Coffee-Mate into their morning and afternoon cups of Joe along with their desk side snacks and or treats like Oreo's and Flaming Hot Cheeto's to name a few.
Then a lightbulb went off in his mind and thought up of a brilliant idea to create a creamer for coffee that was free from artificial flavors, colors, Hydrogenated Soybean Oils and High Fructose Corn Syrup Solids which has been known to cause you to appear hungrier leading to snacking a lot more.
Jonathon then took his expertise in Biology from UCLA where he then paired it with his legal research background from Law School and concoc…

Hello Soothing Mint Fluoride Toothpaste for Sensitivity Relief

Image
It all began with the desire to not only make the world a friendlier place but your mouth as well with Hello Products which is an independently owned company that provides us and our mouths with toothpaste made with limited ingredients that are so tantalizing that you can't wait to clean your teeth with!
Craig Dubitsky  was a genius coming up with the Hello brand who also cofounded EOS lip balm products, was the CMO of Popcorn Indiana and SVP of Venture at Simon Property Group which took him to the initial investment in Method  Products where he was a board member from 2001 to 2004.
As Craig himself strolled down the oral care aisles he was taken aback by the other brands and how they treated our mouths as a war zone when pointing out ways to fight odors, germs, bacteria which then made him come up with the idea of developing his own brand of oral care products that we could feel good about, that were friendly to both our mouths and health, and that is how Hello Products was born!

Drink Maple Pure MapleWater

Image
During the cold winter months sap from maple trees gather nutrients from soil and when Spring approaches the sap begins to drizzle being bottled at the source straight from the trees themselves.
During the process no trees are harmed, they grow on farms and are tapped routinely to allow years of sustainable water supply that offers a crisp, refreshing slightly sweetness!
Maple Water believes that the greatest laboratory on earth is a tree that is untouched, unspoiled, and the sap is not boiled .


Just recently I won a giveaway on Instagram for MapleWater and This Pie Is Nut Granola.
While in Boston at the WholeFoods Symphony market I had the pleasure of trying a sample of MapleWater and got to talking with the woman who was handing out samples which was very friendly and told me some interesting information about it like that it's not overly sweet like maple syrup is.

Ketogenic & Paleo Brownie

Image
It all began with Nick Founder of KetoBrownie who concocted the recipe for his KetoBrownies in October of 2016.
Nick is no stranger to the Keto Diet in fact he's used many times but fell short with Keto-Friendly snacks so he browsed the internet to look for desserts that shared the Ketogenic macros he was in need of with a high fat content, moderate protein and low in carbs which was only a disappointment so he created the ideal KetoBrownie where he then compiled a list of high fat and low carb ingredients that would pair well together for the taste of brownies we all know and love that chewy consistency and rich buttery chocolate flavor.
So he ended up at his local grocery store and then started baking recipes for weeks until he nailed the perfect brownie like consistency but that was healthy, paleo-friendly and made without any GMO's, Sugar Alcohols and is Gluten Free!
When it comes to snacking I want a snack that is not only healthy but delicious and is convenient when on the …
