LaBella Flora Children’s Boutique Dress Review

About a month ago I was approached with an opportunity to review children’s clothing. Having two girls, this momma was all about that. When I saw the website, I was kinda shocked at what I was able to order. This website was LaBella Flora Children’s Boutique.

LaBella Flora has a handful of different types of girls designer clothes for sale, all gorgeous and they look like they came straight out of a magazine! They offer designs from Haute Baby, Doll Baby, Serendipity, Mustard Pie and more for their 2017 fall releases.

After going through all the designs, I wanted to find something that both my children would be able to enjoy on a special occasion. My mother in law actually brought up the idea of selecting something that they would wear to the father daughter dance or even just a daddy daughter date! Once that was decided, we knew what dress would be perfect.

So, fast forward to the day that I anxiously waited for, the day the dress came! Shipping was super fast, I was just impatient. I couldn’t wait to see this dress!

They had it wrapped so pretty! It came like a present!

If you’re wondering what could be wrapped so pretty, here’s a little peek!

The colors were perfect, the material was amazing. It’s soft, flowy and really well made. I was beyond excited about the head piece and belt. It really sets this dress off. However, I feel if you wanted to make it more of a casual and dress it down a little bit with some sandals, you can remove those two items and you have a whole other look. The quality exceeds every expectation that I could have even set. When I say it’s perfect, it is just that. PERFECT!

Okay, enough waiting. This is the dress we ordered

Oh My Goodness. I can’t even begin to describe how it makes me feel seeing her in this dress. I want to smile and I want to cry! She looks so precious and so beautiful. On top of that, she didn’t want to take it off! She felt beautiful and there is nothing better than your child telling you how pretty she feels! I love it!

While I had her all dressed up, we had to do a little fashion show!

 

She only had one complaint the whole time we were taking pictures! She didn’t like being barefoot on the grass!

I’m so glad I kept snapping because you can really see how the petals at the end of the dress just lay so nice and really add great details to the dress!

I was having so much fun taking pictures of her, I almost forgot to take a photo of the back! So, I quickly took one as we were heading back inside!

When I was ordering, I wasn’t 100% sure on the size. She normally wears a size 5 since she is tall. After getting the dress, I was really happy with my size choice. Even if she continues to grow, which she will, this would even look great as a shorter dress! The fabric is so giving even though it’s thicker. I have no doubt we will get a lot of use out of this dress for multiple occasions!

So, if you’re looking for some new doll baby dresses for fall, check out what LaBella Flora has to offer! You will not be disappointed!

OCHO Organic Candy Bar Review

Oh, Candy Bars! I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before and I will mention it again. I am a candy junkie. I hide candy where I can. It’s like if it’s hidden then others don’t know how much I actually eat. Haha. Well until now I guess. I used to be a big gummy and chewy candy type of person. When I started looking into organic candy, I was seeing more chocolate than gummy candy, which I’m definitely okay with! So, I decided to give OCHO Candy Bars a try!

I was so stoked when I got my package from OCHO! They use no preservatives and no artificial additives. You get true organic ingredients, I love that! Reading their label, they don’t hide anything. You get exactly what you think you’re getting.

My all time favorite flavor when it comes to anything mixed with chocolate is definitely Peppermint!

 

The refreshing and cooling from the mint mixed the chocolate, you can’t beat that. OCHO’s peppermint is so smooth and good. It’s not gritty and doesn’t leave a bad after taste. They were my favorite to have after a meal. Even though it’s chocolate, it made me feel like I had better breath after I ate!

My husband’s favorite was Chocolate and Peanut Butter!

He may not have said that it was his favorite, but empty wrappers and missing peanut butter chocolate bars don’t lie. The peanut butter has that chunky peanut butter feel. It’s not gritty but almost has that texture, but I think this is from the fine peanut pieces. Either way, it doesn’t mess with the taste at all. It definitely reminds me of a healthier version of Reese’s cup! Yum Yum!

The Caramel is soo good!

Look at that caramel! It is so ooey and gooey and delicious! It just pours out of the chocolate. Oh my goodness, remember I am a sucker for anything chewy. Well, this is that! It’s buttery and smooth and the best thing to go with chocolate.

Lastly, I’m usually not a fan of Coconut.

However, something about this was different. The coconut was soft and sweet. It was finer and not overwhelming. I liked it so much, I ate more! That never happens, like ever. I hate coconut. Trust me, this is a winner.

I cannot say enough good about OCHO candy bars. If you’re looking for an organic alternative to chocolate or candy bars, OCHO is it!! The candy bars cost roughly $2 and I spent more on other candy bars that weren’t organic! Worth it!

Check out OCHO for yourself. You won’t be disappointed!

Sun Potion Review

When Sun Potion told me I could review any two of their products, I got really excited. They have so many great products, it was hard to decide. After going through all of their superfoods, tonic herbs and goods, I decided it was best to do something practical for me. Yes, I could have gone out on a limb and tried something completely new, but what kind of review would that be? I went with what I know, or well somewhat.

I wanted to try their Shea Butter and Dried Mulberries. 

Shea butter is so multi purpose. You can make deodorants and lotions or products that include shea butter in the recipe. Using it alone, however, has amazing healing properties. I have psoriasis. Sometimes my spots are worse than other days, but using shea butter really helps calm the skin. Keeps it from getting raw and promotes the healing of my skin. I get a lot less scarring with using shea butter.

It’s not just great for psoriasis, but really any skin disorder or blemish. It’s amazing on wrinkles! A friend of our family is from Turkey, and during her last visit she whipped up a cream she swears by to fight off aging. A lot of shea butter, some coconut oil and a handful of different essential oils. It didn’t smell the greatest, but she has amazing skin, so I think it’s safe to say it works.

Reading the back label, I was really impressed to see what their source was. How they get such a great quality shea butter.  Prepared by a women’s collective in Ghana. That’s wonderful. Plus, all the proceeds go directly to the community and wildlife conservation projects in Ghana. It’s nice to see companies that truly care and help support their sources 100%.

Overall, this is one of the best shea butter I have ever used. I will be reordering this.  It’s super creamy and melts well. The smell isn’t overwhelming, like some that I have used in the past. I love this.

________________________________________________________________

The mulberries were something new for me. I have always enjoyed fresh mulberries but I had never had them dry.

Upon opening the bag, I was afraid. The smell was a little too much for me. Definitely not what I was expecting. The health benefits however out weigh any smell these little guys had that I wanted to give it a solid effort.

One of the big benefits in my eyes is that they improve digestive health. I need all the digestive help I can get. I’ve struggled with some sort of issue for about 8 or 9 years now. It’s a mystery on why I feel the way that I do but if these can help me. I’ll eat my 2oz a day forever!

They taste pretty good. Way better than they smell. I can see myself adding these to my trail mix or granola mix. Since they are sun dried, some can be a little too dry or gritty, but the taste helps with that. Plus, it’s something you get used to pretty quickly.

Mulberries also help with lowering cholesterol, help with weight loss, slows down the aging process, lowers blood pressure, improves metabolism, increases circulation, boosting the immune system and preventing certain cancers. These may the secret to living forever!

With all the benefits, it’s a wonder why more people don’t eat them daily. You can easily soak them and include them in baked goods and smoothies. So many ways of getting the 2oz into your diet!

________________________________________________________________

I get so consumed into their website of products. So many things I’ve never heard of before, but reading the health benefits, I need to hear about them more! I’m excited to try more things and get some of their products into my normal routine of using.

Make sure you check out Sun Potion for yourself and see what they all have to offer. It’s definitely worth checking out!

Eat Pak’d Review

Lunch time for my girls can sometimes be a struggle. We try new things and most the time, it’s a complete fail. I try to make it exciting, cutting different shapes and making faces with their food, but we always end up in the same slump. We go back to our main staples and I can’t stand it. There are only so many days a week I want to make the same thing over and over.

Also, with homeschooling, I can’t take all morning prepping lunch. It needs to be quick and easy, so it doesn’t take any time away from learning. I desperately wanted something new for my kids. That’s when I found Eat Pak’d.

One day, during nap time, I was browsing around on Facebook. I came across a sponsored ad for Eat Pak’d and basically, it was this young boy explaining what it was and it caught my eye. They were fun, little packaged lunches that could surprise my girls daily with healthy food to eat. They can even pick out what they want for the following week, as the menu changes. How cool!

The ordering process is so easy. They list the meals for you to pick from and you just select the ones you wish to receive. The great thing is that,  if your child doesn’t like something, you can swap it out for another option or make your own combo and pick a special name to call it.

They come in a box with freezer packs that keep the lunches cool until it’s time to take them out of the package. Check out great these look!

They are perfectly packaged, so you can see what comes in each pack and they easily snap apart to fit into any lunch box!

 

The quality of food that comes in each pack is great! It’s super fresh and delicious. Yes, I made sure to sneak a bite of everything that came. Some of the things I never thought my kids would try, but they did! Some things were quickly shoved to a side, However, most of the food that came, both my girls enjoyed!

^^This girl is my picky eater!

She was so excited every day to get a new lunch out of the refrigerator to try!

^^This is the face of food concentration!

Anything that her sister passed on ended up on her plate. She didn’t let a single package of food go to waste!

Eat Pak’d is so awesome! I highly recommend it for any busy parent to give to their kids. Take back lunch time with Eat Pak’d!

Just So Baby Outfit Review

Having children is one of the best achievements of my life! There is is no greater joy than watching my children grow and learn every day. The one thing that makes it even better, is when they look adorable doing it.

Both my girls love dressing up. They have always let me put them in so many dresses and outfits. However, I wish we did more tutus! They are so cute! I ordered a few online before, but they were usually scratchy and not all that great. I kinda just gave up.

When Just So Baby contacted me for a review, I couldn’t wait to see what they would send. My best friend just had a baby and this was going to be perfect to play dress up with for cute pictures. Look at what they sent!!

I was so surprised by the quality of the tutu. It was soft and not scratchy at all. It was bright and vibrant and made of really nice tulle.

Oh my goodness, can we take a second and talk about those shoes? Are they not the best bedazzled shoes you’ve seen?

When I mentioned it to the owner of Just So Baby, she was pleased to know I loved the shoes. However, she was a little upset on how a couple of the rhinestones overlapped one another and offered to send a whole other pair! Talk about meeting expectations. I thought they were gorgeous and reassured her they were perfect, just the way they were! I was happy to see though that she truly cares about her business and would do anything to see her customers satisfied!

I couldn’t wait to get this outfit on my best friends baby. This was absolutely perfect. This would make an ideal newborn or beginning months photo shoot for a baby girl.

Look at how perfect this outfit is!

You need to check out Just So Baby and get one of these for your babies or a friend! Her prices are crazy good for the quality you get!

LaKenya also makes adorable diaper cakes and other blinged out shoes! Ones that are covered in pearls or spikes depending if there for a boy or a girl!

Check out Just So Baby on Facebook or Etsy!

I highly suggest Just So Baby! I cannot wait to order more things from her store in the future!

Here…. one more dose of cuteness before I leave.

Latch Time Baby Onesies Review. Breastfeeding Support

As a breastfeeding mother, I feel it is important to feel supported. Breastfeeding anymore is filled with such a stigma that we as nursing mothers are made to feel bad about our choices on how we feed our babies. This bothers me to no end and that’s a whole other post and rant that I may at some point make. I do know, however, nursing a baby is a lot of work. Sometimes it takes blood, sweat and a lot of tears…..a lot! I think it’s a badge of honor we get to wear no matter if you made it 1 day or 2 years. Either way, it’s hard.

When I was contacted by a wonderful woman named Sharice from Latch Time, to see if I would review her baby onesies for breastfeeding support and awareness, of course, I said yes! Not only were the onesies adorable, but it was that nice little badge of honor that everyone could see. Not that I want to rub my lifestyle in anyone’s face, but I definitely feel like it was something to be proud about!

I struggled so hard with my oldest daughter to make it 10 months. It was an exhausting second job that had my anxiety at its peak. With my youngest daughter, it came so easy. I had a huge supply and it took me no time at all to feed her and carry on with what we were doing, sometimes multitasking.

When I received these onesies, my first initial reaction was that I was bummed because neither one of my girls were nursing anymore and two, they wouldn’t fit them anyway! haha. They were so cute! The colors could work for a boy or a girl and the graphic on the shirt was very well done. Excellent quality!

To do the perfect review, though, I had to find a cute baby to put in the onesies! Luckily, I knew just where to look!

“Here Comes Milky”

“Leche Letdown”

“Half Baby|Half Boob”

and my personal favorite…for obvious reasons

“Here Comes Milky”

Is he not the cutest????

The onesies are soft and very well done. The graphics are adorable and it’s something as a hard working mom that is nursing, can feel pretty darn good putting on their baby to wear! I LOVE IT!

Aside from the onesies, Latch Time offers wonderful support. They have a super encouraging Instagram that is full of images that are empowering. I highly suggest checking them out. I cannot say enough, how wonderful Sharice and Latch Time are!

Please please please, check them out. Visit them on their website, Instagram or Facebook/Support Group! Get some of these cute onesies! They have a great selection to choose from!

I will finish by saying this…..

Stand proud as a mom. We all work hard and it takes a village to raise a child. Stop the shameing and come together to do what is right for our children. Making the world brighter for them! Be proud of your accomplishments and help one another! No matter how you choose to parent, how you feed your child, we are all different and that is okay! Always remember that!

Martha and Marley Spoon Sweet and Sour Chicken

 

I am such a huge fan of subscription meal boxes. They make my life so much less complicated and stressful! Having the ability to just open a box and all of my ingredients are right there without having to decide what to make is genius!

This box is from Martha and Marley Spoon! Martha, as in Martha Stewart. So, you know the food is going to be good! Now, not all the ingredients are organic, however, they are great quality. Just washing the produce thoroughly is really key.

I had this whole plan of setting up to record the whole process of making this meal. My daughters, on the other hand, had other plans in mind. They wanted to commentate. I’m sure this would have been absolutely hilarious, but I didn’t want to miss any steps. Instead, I decided to record as I was cooking and take a lot of pictures. No judging, my camera and editing skills are still lacking, but this is worth the watch!

This sweet and sour chicken recipe was so good! Joe and I are both huge fans of Chinese food. We serve a lot of foods over rice and this is exactly what we like. The Chinese broccoli really threw me off. I have never seen that before, but it was good! We both agreed that if we can find this locally, we will be cooking with it more often!

This meal gets 2 thumbs up from the Taylor family. Even our children liked it! Rylynn wasn’t a huge fan of the broccoli, but liked the chicken and rice! Remy has very few foods that she doesn’t like. She ate everything we gave her!

Thank you, Martha and Marley Spoon!! Stay tuned for the other recipe I made from this box!!

Ecocentric Mom Box Unboxing and Review

As a mom, you gotta love mom subscription boxes! It’s so awesome. Every month you get a present in the mail, that is just for you! You don’t even have to share it if you don’t want to! I love it. This box is from Ecocentric Mom, it offers all-natural and/or organic products. You can get either the mom, pregnancy or mom and baby box.

My Ecocentric Mom Box was the mom box and it came with a lot of stuff in it! Check this out!

First, it comes all wrapped up in pretty pink paper.

With a paper that has all the contents and prices of each item! As you can see the $24 box is stuffed with items well over that amount.

There were two items from Live Inspired Organics. A Strawberry Sugar Scrub, that smells and feels absolutely amazing…

and a sample bag of tea. I am a huge tea drinker. This made the perfect cup of tea. Great to drink before bed and just relax! Go Ohio!

Common Sense Naturals included a spray hand sanitizer. It smelled wonderful and the convenience of being able to clip this onto a diaper bag or my purse was great!

Simply Earth Roll-On Relief in a Happy Joy scent. This stuff is pretty great. It is very uplifting and does help reduce stress and tension!

A gift card for handbags from Ivory Clasp. I have yet to use this gift card, but I did look over the website. They will match your style and make suggestions. This is another subscription service companies.

A sample size of Maty’s Cough Syrup.

A really cute magnetic picture hanging craft. We are currently redoing our homeschool room and I think this will be a cute addition to add to my daughters’ desks!

Hunkola!! I was pretty excited about this. I LOVE food, especially snacking type of food. This made the whole box worth it! haha.

Overall this was a pretty awesome box. Great quality products, no gimmicks. I was really impressed. Plus, it was nice to get a “gift” just for me!

The Tea Spot Review

Tea has always reminded me of home. My dad was/is a huge tea drinker. Hot or cold, it’s all he drinks. I remember being a kid and him heating up a big pot of water and throwing in a couple tea bags and letting them sit. I feel like there was always a steeping cup in the kitchen at all times.

However, what I am used to and what The Tea Spot offers, are completely different. When I think of tea, I think of boring black tea bags. Check out what The Tea Spot has!

These are the 3 types I got to try from The Tea Spot! Morning Mojo, Keep Fit and Lights Out.

Morning Mojo

Look at how pretty that tea is! This is the perfect cup of tea to wake up to. The vanilla is super smooth, but yet the orange is super fragrant and refreshing! Check out that orange peel!

I didn’t have a great way to steep my tea. Yes, I could have thrown it in a pot of hot water and then strained it out, but I decided to improvise!

I took a coffee filter and filled it with a spoonful of tea. Wrapped it up and let the hot water pour over it! I hooked the filter to the side of my cup and got a beautiful cup of tea!

Keep Fit

This tea looked really rustic. In fact, when I put it in my coffee filter it kind of poked some holes in it. Once steeped, it made a pretty golden color tea!

So, I might have liked this one so much that I forgot to take a picture until it was almost gone! I love lemon flavored tea. This was light and delicious!

Lights Out

This one was definitely the prettiest of the three. It had flowers in it!  It was so floral and pretty and it tasted so good! I love calming teas and this one did the trick. It has chamomile, lavender, licorice root and peppermint. It definitely tasted more like licorice and peppermint.

The tea is a really pretty burgundy color.

Overall these were a great variety of teas. Not only did they look attractive and earthy but they tasted amazing. Browsing through their website this is only a small amount of what they offer. From tons of black tea to specialty teas, ways to steep your tea and gift sets for any occasion. I am pretty impressed and will definitely be ordering more!

If youd like to check out more, make sure you head over to The Tea Spot!

Candy Club Review and Unboxing

I’m just going to get this out of the way now, I Love Candy! I’ve gotten better over time, of course. I used to have candy stashed all over the place. In my car, purse, pantry, desk and at work. Basically, it was anywhere I was within reach. My husband always thought it was hilarious, I couldn’t help myself.

After I started switching to only buying organic candy, I started reading the labels. Some of those ingredients made me not want candy anymore. Organic candy is great, you get that guilty pleasure feeling when really you’re okay! However, organic candy isn’t a thing you find easily where I live. If I want it, I have to order it. That’s fine and all, but sometimes you just need that sweet fix!

Lately, I’ve been loving these subscription boxes. You just have stuff show up every month! It’s a nice surprise for me and my family. I really wanted a candy box of some sort, and then one-day browsing facebook I see these adorable containers with candy in them! BINGO!

I went to their website hoping to find some sort of organic candy. They didn’t have that, but they had a nice replacement. They had dark chocolate! Who doesn’t love chocolate??

If you didn’t know, dark chocolate has so many health benefits! It is loaded with antioxidants, improves blood flow, lowers blood pressure, lowers the risk of cardiovascular disease, protects your skin from the sun and improves brain function!

With all those reasons right there is why Candy Club and I are going to be great friends!

What is Candy Club?

Candy Club is a candy subscription box company that sends you candy every month! They have a wide variety to choose from and you can choose 3 different kinds at the minimum. Look how pretty it comes!

They even fill it with hard candies to give an extra surprise

So, I ordered.. Dark Chocolate Covered Raisins. These were my favorite!

 A Bridge Mix, which is a mix of dark chocolate covered nuts, caramels, and creams. There was a little milk chocolate covered things as well. I ordered it because it had dark in it. These were my husband’s favorite.

Lastly, I ordered chocolate covered almonds. When I ordered this, for some reason I thought it said dark chocolate covered, but really it was milk chocolate. It was my mistake, but it was really good!

They come in a great food grade plastic container that you can use over again for crafts and storage!

Overall…

I really liked Candy Club. Shipping was super fast. Their website is easy to work through. They have a huge list of FAQ so, you know exactly how their system works. They have great customer service and overall their candy is really good! I’ll definitely be checking back to see what other chocolate they have available.

Unboxing!!

I think  Candy Club has something for everyone! Definitely worth a try! They have some awesome promos going on right now. Check out these coupons!!

50% off + Free Shipping on Your First Candy Club Box

Just in time for Valentines Day! This would make the perfect gift instead of that boring heart shaped box of candy from the store!

Miessence Product Reviews

I have another great review for you! I like it because, 1. I never heard of this brand and 2. I am supporting another beautiful lady in a natural organic momma group I am in. Looking further into the ingredients had me intrigued for sure. This brand is Miessence, and the beautiful lady I am talking about is Marie Beermann from Australia! I have to say first off, this blog has brought me to many parts of the world I would have never expected to reach and I am so excited that it has happened. If not, I doubt I would of heard of Miessence! They have all certified organic skincare, haircare, cosmetics, superfoods, homecare and other products. With Marie’s help I was able to check out the skincare and haircare line and I have nothing negative to say.

FOR WARNING the following content will contain photos of my face without makeup! Haha.. To any woman reading this, I’m sure can relate. As I was taking photos of my skin, I did with caution. Trying to find the appropriate light. However, I have to say it wasn’t that bad. These products were really conditioning and it made me feel confident. I didn’t have the horrible dry spots as I do usually. So, of course, I took pictures to share with you all.. Proceed with caution…..even though.. I felt pretty good!

So, after working most the day in the salon, my makeup had worn off some and with the heat outside my face melted somewhat. I was more than excited to wash my face and start over.

20160820_200858

 The Cleanser was great! Took my makeup off super easy. I didn’t feel like I needed to really scrub. I like that. My eyeliner is prone to raccoon eyes. This wasn’t the case. Washed off easily! See…

20160820_201050

Next, was the skin conditioner…..

20160820_201155

The skin conditioner was more of a skin serum. It was sooo smooth! The one thing I loved compared to other skin serums was that I didn’t feel like I was suffocating! It was light weight and moisturizing!

20160820_201325

The Moisturizer was probably my favorite!

20160820_201511

It was smooth and smelled ok. As I put it on, it made me think of tea and butter, which was kind of odd, but it faded. Overall, It made my skin feel wonderful! It wasn’t heavy and didn’t have a greasy feeling like other moisturizers I have tried. I would of felt confident to stop right here, go about my day, feeling like my skin felt beautiful!

20160820_201615

Next, I tried the foundations. Now I am a little picky when it comes to foundation. They can get clumpy, gritty and can dry out your skin. They make your skin look dry and flaky, so usually I just opt to not using any. However. Miessence didn’t disappoint! I tried 3 different kinds… Honey, Vanilla and Porcelain!

20160820_201815

20160820_201908

20160820_202043

I was pretty surprised when I used all 3 of these colors on different sections of my face. When they say translucent, they actually mean it. All 3 gave me a different glow when I rubbed them in. The honey gave me a warm glow. I liked it! It was a nice sun kissed color to my cheek. The vanilla I would use probably on a daily basis. It matched my skin and it didn’t look like I was wearing makeup at all. The Porcelain,  would work well under my eyes as they can get darker just a tad and this would be a good way to cancel that out! When they were rubbed in, it felt more like a lotion than a foundation.

Can you tell I used 3 different types of foundation? I think that’s what I like most. They have their slight differences but yet cover my imperfections!

20160820_202117

Eeeekk.. now forget you saw any of those images and just remember what I said…  Miessence is a win!!

I also had the pleasure to try some of their other products! Like the Shampoo and Conditioner….

20160820_202535

Now with being a hairstylist and trying every single shampoo and conditioner under the sun. I can be pretty bias, but this was pretty good! The shampoo, I only had to use once. I usually only wash my hair once every 5 days or so, which in turn I need to wash my hair twice to get it really clean. This shampoo, one time did the trick!

20160820_202353The conditioner, left my hair soft and pliable. It wasn’t heavy and was easy to get through my hair. My hair has a tendency to tangle easily… Not the case here… For a natural conditioner, this worked well for me!

20160820_20240320160820_20235820160820_202401

The last 3 products I used from Miessence were the Body Wash, Shave Gel and After Shave Balm. With body washes, I’m not to picky. As long as it smells decent (but not over powering with artificial fragrance) and cleans well, I don’t care. This body wash was good though. The smell was light, it lathered well and didn’t leave a soapy residue on my skin!

The Shave Gel and Balm worked well together. I shaved my legs with the gel. I have super sensitive skin. so shaving my legs always leaves me with bumps and the feeling of a rug burn. The shave gel worked well with my razor. It was smooth going on and let my razor get close. I felt like it moisturized as I used it and left no stubble.. YAY! The balm prevented any razor bumps. I was happy. I didn’t feel like I had burnt bumpy legs, probably because it has aloe vera! Plus, it was smooth! Happy lady right here!

Overall, I’d say Miessence is a winner. All the products I tried didn’t disappoint! They over exceeded my expectations and I am happy to recommend the brand to others! The ingredients list is easy to read on all the products and I knew what all of them were. The quality is great and price is probably more on the higher side for many, but more than reasonable for the quality you receive!

I hope you all give Miessence a chance!  Check out Miessence HERE or email Marie at mariebeermann22@gmail.com  with any questions you may have!

Sun Basket Unboxing Review

I can’t tell you how excited I was to open my Sun Basket box when the Fed Ex driver dropped it off. I was running around trying to get my children situated so I could get that bad boy opened.

If you don’t know what Sun Basket is, they are a meal delivery service based out of the West Coast that offers meals that are all organic, containing no hormones or antibiotics, humanely raised, fresh ingredients to make some fancy looking meals! They have a lot of different options to fit all diet needs. I personally chose a steak, shrimp and cod dish to try. I got 3 meals, each having 2 servings.

I received notice on Tuesday that my package was shipped and on Wednesday it was delivered. I was very surprised to feel that the box was cool to touch. Which made me happy. I was a little nervous on how all the works, considering they are shipping meat.

20160720_212641Well, there it is! Loved the box design. I think that’s initially what made me excited. It just screams… Open Me!

20160720_212919_resizedThe Box is fully insulated and was cool to the touch. I knew everything that was inside remained the appropriate temperature throughout it’s travel. Opening you can see that all three meals have their own back of ingredients. I thought this was awesome. How much easier can it get right?

Under all food bags was another cooler section that had freezer packs surrounding the meat! How smart!

The meat looked great. The best part that they are labeled with handling instructions and when to use by. So, even if your plan isn’t to cook right away, you’ll know when you need to do it by.

It comes with all the recipe cards as well and any tips you may need when it comes to cooking your food.
