Mike's Muffins - Gluten-Free Breakfast Option! [Review and Giveaway]

I had the chance to try these out recently and I couldn't wait to tell you about it! They certainly provide a healthier and unique twist on the English muffin. I love English muffins and since going gluten-free, I really thought I had to give them up! They are one of my favorite breakfast bread choices! So when these came along I knew that I had a great find. I had the chance to try out two kinds - cinnamon raisin and toasted onion .  What I liked first hand about these muffins were the simple ingredients inside. For the toasted onion, the ingredients include Eggs, Almond Flour, Purified Water, Coconut Flour, Toasted Onion Flakes, Baking Soda, and Kosher Salt. For the cinnamon raisin, it includes eggs, almond flour, purified water, coconut flour, raisins, cinnamon, baking soda, kosher salt, and stevia. I have to ask, have you ever purchased a flavored food product and notice that the flavor they are saying it is, isn't even in the ingredients list? I've n

I had the chance to try something pretty amazing by the Savannah Bee Company and I can't wait to tell you about it!

Smart Flour Pizza - A Smarter Gluten-Free Pizza Night!

I had the chance to try out the Smart Flour Pizza recently and I couldn't wait to tell you about it. I feel like gluten-free pizza has come a long way and I've been so happy to see more and more options sprout up around the grocery store for those of us who can't have gluten in our diet. It started out back in 2005, when Georgia Hutton wanted to make a flavorful gluten-free flour blend for a friend diagnosed with Celiac disease. Thus, the smart flour blend was born! Charlie Pace soon came on board and acquired the business, and that's where we are today. Read more about the start of Smart Flour Foods here. I tried this pizza and thought it gave an interesting spin on the genre. I didn't find it all too crispy but that's okay, because I'm not usually the biggest fan of SUPER crispy pizza. Of the two kinds I tried, I really enjoyed the Margherita Pizza , because it had a lot of flavor and personally that's one of my favorite kinds of pizza (aside from

Vitamin C Serum - Add This To Your Morning Beauty Routine [Review and Giveaway]

What is your morning (or evening) beauty routine? For me, I'm usually so tired at night that if I remember to wash my face, it's an enormous deal. But in the morning, I pay so much more attention to my skin. I always put on coconut oil of some kind, but lately, I've been adding a new addition to my routine - Vitamin C Serum. I've heard about the benefits of using a Vitamin C Serum for a while now and jumped at the chance to try it out and see the kind of impact this had on my skin. I have been using the Amara Organics Vitamins C Serum 20% (with Vitamin E and Hydraulic Acid) Serum for a couple of weeks now. One thing that stood out to me was how gentle this was on my skin. It wasn't harsh at all. I use it daily each morning and follow it up with  a moisturizer. Vitamin C Serum is supposed to reduce signs of aging. I'm only 28 so I'm not sure that I have a lot of evidence of aging to worry about just yet. This is also supposed to brighten skin, repai

Grandpa's Famous Soap Review [And Giveaway]

I am trying to get better about washing my face at night, and so when I had the chance to try out soap made by Grandpa's Famous I couldn't wait to get better about that habit. Best of all, my older brother had tried out their soap that you can also use as shampoo! There's a few things that jump out at me as being pretty awesome about Grandpa's Brands . First of all, they seem to be most well known for their Pine Tar Soap, and according to their website, the very first recipe came out in the 1870s! How about THAT? Grandpa's Brands has been through a lot of changes, but they remain such good quality. I love that it is made in the USA.  AND they are GMO FREE ! Some people don't mind GMO products, but I do, and so this was so nice for me to see. My brother had the chance to review their Pine Tar Soap . "The pine tar soap is awesome!" My brother said. "It smells really nice." Plus you can use it for your hair and he says it makes his hair

Renuzit - Make Your Home Smell Amazing [Review + Giveaway]

I can tell you that I am not a HUGE fan of deodorizer sprays. They don't tend to take away any negative smells nor do they improve the smell of a room too much. Especially the bathroom. These sprays just wrap themselves around the bad smell and make it a weird, funky combination that will end up on your tongue. I had the chance to try out the new Renuzit Pearl Scents PERFECT for my apartment. I couldn't wait to tell you about it. I tried out the sparkling rain Renuzit and I loved it! It is such a gentle smell to have in the bathroom, which is where I ended up leaving mine (as you can see in the photo above it did start out in my living room). It isn't overly strong and it really adds such a nice smell into a room that has a lot of potential for some not good smells. I noticed after a while it didn't remain as strong but the freshness in the room remained. I really liked that. The Renuzit Pearl Scents come in so many different scents. You can try it ou
