Goldfish® Mix Review

Disclosure - free sample provided.



Do your kids love snacking?  Mine always have been big snackers.  They have always enjoyed Goldfish® crackers.  My son's favorite was always the Parmesan flavor.  My daughter has always liked the pretzel ones.  They are an easy snack that is great for on the go.  They are a fun addition to their lunches.





Did you know that they have come out with some new varieties of these tasty snacks?  We received some samples of Goldfish® Mix  and enjoyed them.  My 11 and 13 year old thought it was neat that there was more than one variety in each bag.  This made snacking fun for us, and kind of exciting.  We thought it was a great way not to get bored of the flavor.  The new varieties come with at least 2 flavors in the bag.  We found that the flsbors compliment each other nicely.  Our favorite is the Cheesy Pizza + Parmesan.  They also sent were Xtra Cheddar + Pizza and Cheddar + Zesty Cheddar+ Parmesan.  What variety would you want to try?

Davina Wellness Essential Oils Review

Disclosure - free sample provided.



I am a big fan of essential oils.  What is your favorite essential oil, and what do you use it for?  I am always looking for new uses for my essential oils.  I am also always looking for new oils to try, and different brands to try out.  I was recently introduced to Davina Wellness Essential Oils.  They have a huge selection of essential oils.  Their essential oils are reasonably priced.  They are great quality too.  


I was sent a selection of essential oils from Davina Wellness to try out.  The oils I received are from their chef collection.  These oils are great because they have multiple uses.  They can be used in a diffuser, but they can also be consumed.  This is pretty neat.  I am impressed because if they can be consumed then I know they are high quality oils.  

I received wild orange, lemon, lime, basil, cilanto, and oregano essential oils.  I really love them all.  The first thing I noticed was they have a great fresh aroma to them.  The fragrance is intense and really smells pure.  I have a lemon essential oil from another brand that I purchased that is absolutely not as clean and intense smelling as the Davina Wellness lemon oil I received.  This is great because you get a true smelling fragrance.  It is also great because you don't have to use as much of the oil.  I tried the citrus oils in my diffuser, but I also thought it was neat that you can add a drop to your water.  They have a great fragrance, but also flavor.  I was impressed.  One of my favorite combinations in my diffuser is the cilantro and lime oil.  It has an amazingly fresh aroma.  What would you choose to difuse?  

You can learn more about all of the great essential oils that Davina Wellness offers by visiting their website.  These are just some of the high quality oils that they offer.  Which variety would you want to try?

Melissa's Product - Review

Disclosure - free sample provided.

I am so happy to be featuring Melissa's Produce on my blog.  They offer amazingly fresh produce.  You can find many of their products at your local grocery store.  If there is something specific you are looking for and can't find at your local store, you can always order directly from their website and have it shipped right to your home.



I was recently sent some samples of a neat product from Melissa's.  They offer a variety of ready to eat products that you can simply warm and serve.  How easy is that when you get home from work and want to make a simple side, or veggie?  The best part is that these are shelf stable and they do not need to go into your fridge.  I sampled Melissa's ready to eat golden beets, Pariesienne potatoes, and lentils.  We loved them all.  These are pre cooked items that you can either use with the recipe on the back, or you can create your own recipe.  My 11 and 13 year old loved the simple recipe on the back of the Pariesienne potatoes.  These are pre cooked potatoes.  The recipe on the back of the package was quick, and delicious.  I love making wholesome and healthy sides that I can put together quickly when I get home from a long day at work.  I love beets on a salad.  The golden beets were not only pretty, but had a fresh taste that is so much better than canned beets!



Melissa's also sent me some of their Clean Snax.  This is a great healthy snack when you are on the go, or in a hurry.  My kids even enjoyed these, and I felt good about them eating them.  These are made with chia and flaxseed.  These are crunchy snack squares.  I found that they really feel you up, and they are a much better snacking alternative to chips and junkfood.  They offer sweet and savory varieties of these snacks.  My personal favorite was the South West flavor.  I absolutely love super spicy food, and these had a great amount of heat, but also a hint of sweetness.  We really enjoyed the matcha flavor.  

These are just some of the tasty items that Melissa's has to offer.  You can visit their website to learn more about all of their produce.

Summer Skin care Must Haves Review

Disclosure - free sample provided.

What are some of your favorite skin care products?  I was recently introduced to some new skin care items that have really helped me take care of my skin during the Summer months.

I recently went to the dermatologist and was told I had a few sun damage spots on my arms and neck.  They froze these spots off, but told me I need to protect my skin from the sun better.  I always apply sunblock with a high SPF, but because I am very fair I can still burn.  I live in Las Vegas so it is pretty much impossible to avoid the sun.

My dermatologist suggested that I try Heliocare.  I had never heard of it.  Heliocare is a dietary supplement that you take orally.  It helps maintain the skin's ability to protect itself against the aging effects of free radicals.  You simply take one capsule in the morning.  If you are going to be in the sun for an extended period you can follow with more throughout the day.

I have been taking Heliocare supplements and have found that I don't burn like I would without taking them.  I use this in conjunction with a good sunblock.  My skin seems to be much more protected from the intense sun here in Vegas.  I will typically end up burned in about 2 hours with reapplying sunblock when I'm out at the pool with my family.  I haven't burned once since taking Heliocare.  I can actually enjoy being in the pool with my family, and I don't have to ho hide in the shade after a short amount of sun exposure.  I am impressed and plan to continue to use Heliocare during the Summer months.




Protecting my skin is very important to me.  I have melanoma that runs in my family, and I have very fair skin. 

What else do you do to take care of your skin in the Summer?  I have very dry skin in the Summer because it is so dry in Vegas.  I have to use a good moisturizer.  Do you have a favorite line of moisturizing products?



I was recently introduced to theraplex.  I fell in love with their moisturizers.  My daughter and I both suffer from eczema.  It can be difficult to find a moisturizer that is gentle and great if you have eczema prone skin.  Theraplex is a product that is accepted by the National Eczema Association.  They offer a variety of skin care products.  My 11 year old and I first tried the Theraplex Hydrolotion.  This is a dily skin moisturizer.  It keeps your skin hydrated.  It feels like it puts a barrier on your skin.  It is hypoallergenic, preservative free, fragrance free, paraben free, gluten free, and it is not tested on animals.  It is perfect to apply after the shower, or after a day in the pool.  It didn't irritate our skin either.  The theraplex clear lotion is also a great moisturizer to use after the shower or bath.  This is an oil moisturizer that you can spay on your skin.  I found this lotion to be super moisturizing, and easy to apply.

You can learn more about all of these products by visiting their websites.

Lady Soma Review

Disclosure - free sample provided.



Are you looking for great products to keep your skin looking healthy and young?  I have less than one year until my 40th Birthday, so I am always looking for great products to make my skin look healthy and young.  I have previously featured a Lady Soma Skincare products on my blog.  I was previously impressed, but I am even more impressed with their product line after trying some of their new items. 

I was introduced to Lady Soma’s Moisturizer with Vitamins.  This is a great moisturizer to use day and night.  It feels great on, and doesn’t leave my skin feeling oily.  It feels soft and smooth after applying it to my face.  This product retails for under $19 from the Lady Soma website.  The moisturizer is meant to assist in filling in lines and wrinkles.  I also contains anti-aging collagen.  I cannot wait to continue to use this over time.

I also had the opportunity to try Lady Soma’s Collagen Eye Repair Gel.  I love the way this works.  You simply apply a small amount around the eye area and it helps remove the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  I instantly feel like the area around my eye is firmer and tighter after applying it.  It is said that this product can help with bags around your eyes.

Lady Soma’s Rapid Line Filler is another great product.  I like to use this on the fine lines on my forehead.  Where would you want to try this product?  This product is designed to help with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  I found it left my skin feeling smooth.

These are just some of the excellent products from Lady Soma.  You can visit their website to learn more.

My Heritage DNA Test Kit Review

Disclosure - free sample provided.




Have you ever wanted to test your DNA to find out what ethnicity you exactly are?  There are a few companies out there that do this.  I was recently introduced to My Heritage.  They offer DNA test kits that are shipped right to your door.  This is an easy way to test your DNA to determine your ethnicity.  

How does the process work?  You receive the kit and it is delivered to your home.  You need to read the instructions.  You swab the inside of your mouth, and send the samples back in.  Once they receive the sample you can then track what stage of the extraction process your DNA is in.  

Once your DNA has been processed you then have access to some interesting features through the My Heritage website.  The website gives you a DNA estimate, and this tells you what percentage you are of what ethnicity.  It even provides a map to show you that region.  I was pretty impressed.  You also then have the ability to look at DNA matches.  Theses are possible relatives based on your DNA.

If you want to learn more about My Heritage, and order your own kit you can visit their website.
