The Spice Lab Gourmet Salt Collection No.1

My Mom would probably laugh that I am even doing this review. She knows that I lack a certain amount of passion in the kitchen. Cooking just is NOT my thing. I've never loved being in the kitchen, and I definitely do not see it as an art like some do. Lately though, having my very own little family, I am trying to find ways to make my cooking taste a little better, and I have been mixing it up some. This is the reason I contacted The Spice Lab

Even though I have started experimenting with my cooking more, the one area I lack in is seasoning. I never know exactly which seasoning to put in my dish, and I am terrified of ruining a hard cooked meal. The awesome thing about the Gourmet Salt Collection from The Spice Lab is that it comes with this nifty little "cheat" sheet. This sheet tells me which salts are a finishing salt, which salts are great to cook with and which are perfect to be use as a table salt. This card also tells me which salts are best on chicken, veggies, red meats, fish and soups or salads. They truly make this seasoning thing super easy. Even a novice "chef" like me can use these salts to their ultimate potential!

Fashion CAN be Functional with Fumi! Win Yours!

I am not fashionista by any means. In fact, at this point in my life, function takes the place of fashion any day. That is the life of a busy mommy, right? However, if I have the chance to try something out that is fashionable but also functional, I am ALL OVER THAT! I recently received several items from Fumi that make my life just a little easier.

The cell phone wallet is amazing! Seriously!! This is perfect for those quick trips to the grocery store without the kids. You see, I normally carry a big bulky diaper bag, but sometimes I am lucky enough to head out sans kids. These moments, I adore my Fumi wallet. I throw my cards and/or cash in the wallet, slip the cell in and go! It comfortable holds my iPhone 5, and hubbies 4 WITH their case! I love it! So incredibly functional and it's pink so I love it even more.

Nutrisystem Week 1

I'm proud to be a #NSNationBlogger. Click here to start your weight loss journey!

So I’m done with week 1 of Nutrisystem. This past week was their week called fast 5. The calories are very limited and most lose 5 pounds. After the first week, calories are increased and you get to add more options. The biggest question I am getting is: Did you lose 5 pounds? No, BUT I did lose 4, and 4 pounds in 1 week is still really good.

Survival Straps Medical Alert Bracelet

I have many friends who wear a medical alert bracelet. I didn’t really think anything of them until a few years ago. I have a few medical conditions that don’t require a ID but would be a really good idea. I thought about getting one then kept forgetting. One of my problems is that I can’t wear most metal. I break out, so the options were limited. I came across Survival Straps one day and noticed that they don’t have metal in them (as one of the choices) so I knew that would be great. I was thrilled when they agreed to send one to me for review.

Fit Tea 14 Day Detox

As you probably know, I have lost quite a bit of weight over the years, 113 lbs to be exact, but who is counting, right? Over the past few months, I have noticed the scale starting to creep up and before I knew it, I was up five pounds. I am finding it not as easy to get the weight off this go around, and that is starting to panic me just a bit. I absolutely can not allow myself to get to where I once was. Right around the time the scale gradually started to go up, I was contacted to review Fit Tea.  This pleasant tasting tea really helps curb my appetite. Ingredients: Organic Green Tea, Oolong Wu Yi, Organic Rooibos, Ginger, Pomegranate, Guarana, Birch, Stevia, Corn and Honey Powder. I absolutely love that all of the ingredients in Fit Tea are natural and plant based with all natural ingredients! I know I can safely take this and it will decrease my appetite and boost my energy and immune system!

Win an awesome giveaway of Baby Fanatic Starting Line Up Gift Set!

If you have read the blog for a while, then you know that my Dad passed away when my oldest son was not even born yet. My dad and I had this thing, every time there was a Florida Gator football game on, we watched together. It was not always possible to be together physically, but we called each other after every awesome (or terrible) play. Since my Dad passed away, I have not watched a single game of Gator Football because it brings back too many memories, but the Florida Gators do hold a very special place in my heart. If my boys do decide they enjoy sports, I hope they will be Gator fans.
