Fiber Gourmet Review

I am trying to live a healthier lifestyle and I get enough protein, but I never understood why I wasn't staying full for very long. I found out that I wasn't getting enough fiber. Now when I go grocery shopping, I always look for foods that have protein + fiber in them.

Fiber Gourmet is a company that produces foods that are low calorie and good for you and also full of fiber. I received some of their products to try and they fit perfectly in my diet. -- I'm not a huge pasta fan, or I should say I try to stay away from pasta because there are so many carbs. However, I tried fiber gourmet's pasta and I was definitely hooked.
I tried the pasta with some turkey meatballs, and no salt added tomato sauce. 130 calories per serving, and 18grams of fiber, and 40% fewer net carbs then regular pasta. My husband wasn't a fan, but I really liked the taste. I liked the pasta better than the meatballs.

I also received two different kinds of 100 calorie cookies. English Toffee and Cinnamon Swirl. I really enjoyed the English Toffee ones. The bag was gone as quick as I opened it. 15 grams of fiber. That's incredible. I still have the cinnamon swirl left. I'm saving for lunch sometime this week.

Last but not least, I received a few different kinds of crackers. I love eating crackers with tuna, pimento cheese, or even by themselves. Fiber Gourmet has many kinds of crackers and some of them are: jalapeno cheddar, bbq, pizza, tomato basil, and more. You can see what they offer by clicking here.

Pasta, Crackers, and Cookies. Many different products that are all full of fiber. They were on Dr. Oz. You know it's a good thing when they are on Dr. Oz :) I'm glad I was able to find foods that help me stay fuller longer and that are good for you! Watch!
Fiber Gourmet is great for my diet, and it can be for yours too! Find out more on facebook.

InstaNatural Skin Brightening Serum Review

InstaNatural is dedicated to creating products without parabens, sulfates, artificial colors, artificial dyes, mineral oil, and formaldehyde. The Philosophy from their founder: "“I started InstaNatural because I saw a problem, and I wanted to fix it. Too many personal care products I used either didn’t work, or they had ingredients I didn’t feel were safe to use. I wanted something that I could use in my daily routine that I truly believed in—so I set out to make it myself. After getting traction with customers who thought the same as I did, and a couple years’ of growth, we have the same philosophy at heart, but an expanded product line, even better ingredients, and a team of extremely talented individuals I’m proud to call my colleagues. At InstaNatural, “good enough” isn’t in our vocabulary; our standard is still excellence in natural and organic-inspired products. I know that’s what I wanted, and it’s an honor to know that it’s what our customers want as well.”

I received the Skin Brightening Serum. I'm not big on skin products, but I know I need to start using them and make up. I'm getting older and there are certain things I need to start doing in my daily routine.
I've been using it every morning with a moisturizer and my skin just feels good. I've had a few people come up to me at work and say they notice a change in my skin. It smells really good, like oranges, and I love oranges. The serum is very easy to apply. It's natural, and I always buy natural products.They are better for your skin.

InstaNatural offers a lot of other products. Many that I'd love to try. Some include: Micellar Water (love those), Vitamin C Moisturizer, Night Cream, and their shampoo and conditioner. Those are among just a few of their products I would like to try and they offer so many more. You can find them on facebook, instagram, and twitter.

Nicola Mari Review

Nicola Mari is a retailer of trendy women's clothes, jewelry, gifts and accessories at an affordable price. Shoppers earn reward points for each purchase. We offer opportunities for consultants who want to run a fun home-based business & we donate part of our profits to charity.

When I was in my teens I was big on body mists. I would go to Victoria Secret, or the Body shop and buy whatever was on sale, or whatever smelled good at the time. I would always spray myself before I left the house because I wanted to smell good. Not that a shower wouldn't help do that, but body mists always gave me that extra something. People would always stop and ask me.. "oh what's that smell?". I liked being able to talk about what I was wearing, and spread the brand name. I was sent some Fragrance Mist to try. It definitely took me back to my teenage years.
Berry Desire Mist is the name. You definitely get a lot of the berry aroma in every spray. It smells very good. I've been wearing it when I leave the house for work every morning and a few of my co-workers have already asked what I'm wearing. -- Nicola Mari offers a few other mists as well. Some of the flavors are: Tropical Fantasy, Orange Crush, and Fresh Breeze. You can check them out here.

Nicola Mari offers necklaces, bracelets, earrings, accessories, beauty, bags, and even clothes. There's a lot to browse from. There jewerly is really pretty. I wish I wore it more, but it's definitely a good place for me to go and browse for friends gifts. They even have a reward program when you buy items, or when people you refer buy, or click on your links. I love earning points for shopping! Find out more on facebook, twitter, and instagram.

Pine Brothers Review

I've had the opportunity to review Pine Brothers soft throat drops before, and they came at the perfect time. For some reason, and maybe it's just the weather change, I wake up with this nasty cough... my throat hurts too at times, but not as bad as this cough. I always pop in some Pine Brothers throat drops, and I immediately feel better. They rank #1 in Throat Coating action! They are so incredibly soft, and they taste good too. No more of those other drops that taste like medicine. Watch below:

The four flavors right now offered on their website are: Wild Cherry, Natural Honey, Licorice, and Lemon Lime. I received a new flavor to try! Vitamin C Orange. It's so tasty, but of course it makes my throat feel much better. I try to incorporate Vitamin C in my every day routine. They also have flavors that are sugar free.

The consistency of the drops make it easy to use as well. They taste like candy, and I keep reaching for more, but I do limit myself. Pine Brothers is a trusted brand, and you can find them in your local grocery stores and drug stores! --

Right now they also have a game you can play on your phone or ipad. It's called Thumbopoly. "Thumbopoly is a premium lifestyle slot game for women. Try your luck with Thumbopoly by spinning to win luxury prizes you covet from premium brands you’re obsessed with, and coupon codes you crave from your favorite stores."

If you're looking for a throat drop that not only does the trick, but also tastes great, go find some Pine Bro's near you. If you head over to their website, you can print off a coupon that if you buy 2 you save 1$. Enjoy!

Ally's Bar Review

I love sweet potatoes. I could eat them all the time, so when I stumbled across Ally's Bar online... I had to see if I could try some. Ally created Sweet Potato Bars! I've never heard of such thing, but was really excited I did.
Why did they choose to make a Sweet Potato bar? Well --- Not only are sweet potatoes amazing and delicious, but they provide sustainable energy. They are jam packed with antioxidants and loaded with vitamins and minerals. Also the Sweet Potato is a superfood!
There are three types: Original, w/Apple Carrot and Ginger, and Pistachio Cashew and Pumpkin Seed. All three of them are delicious!
The original bar has some dates, quinoa, healthy nuts, cranberries, bananas and some dark chocolate. I love all these ingredients and packed into one bar is awesome!

The Apple Carrot bar was inspired by Ally's favorite juice. You definitely taste the apple in this bar. And then the Pistachio/Pumpkin.. mmm it's just really nutty, but has a lot of protein. Again, I love sweet potatoes, and to find a product out there that's definitely different was totally worth it! You can find out more on facebook and instagram.

"

I received a bag full of goodies from Pure Growth. Included:
Biscuit Bites - They come in Strawberry and Apple Cinnamon. They are breakfast bites, but you can eat them whenever. They are made in the US, organic, baked, and kosher, and they are good. I really liked the apple cinnamon bites. I had them a few times, and shared them with my friends too. They were tasty! I love all things apple all year round!
They also have breakfast bars. Chocolate Banana, Oatmeal Raisin, and Cinnamon Brown Sugar. These are good for on the go!!
The Super Chips! I haven't tried these yet, but I love jalepenos, and that's the flavor I received. They also have White Cheddar and Spicy Thai! The Super Chips are made with kale, quinoa, and chia seeds.
Who doesn't love animal crackers? Besides the Minion shaped crackers -- they also have Mickey shaped -- those are chocolate flavored. I loved my minion animal crackers. Highly addicting.
PopCorn! I received a variety pack. We love popcorn in this household, so those bags were gone in a heart-beat!

We also received trail mix! They have so many products to offer on their website and all the products are organic! Kids would love these snacks, not only because they taste really good, but did you see the pictures on the boxes? They were characters from the movies/shows they watch! Right now you can find their products at walmart and on amazon. To learn more check them out on facebook, and instagram.

Jif Cinnamon Peanut Butter Review

Jif Peanut Butter brand is normally the brand we buy. We are definitely loyal to them. They have so many different products, it's hard to choose what I want to buy. Normally we stock the Simply Creamy Peanut Butter and it takes us a month to use it. A few weeks back I received from crowdtap some Cinnamon Peanut Butter to try. I immediately opened it up and had to try some. It's so creamy, and that cinnamon flavor is amazing.
I normally use peanut butter on bread, bagels, pretzels dipped in.. and with apples and celery. Apples and Peanut butter is a big thing with me. It gives me the protein I need in the morning between breakfast and lunch and it fills me up! I also love peanut butter in general. The cinnamon peanut butter is different, but in a good way. I tried it with a spoon and definitely had a few helpings!
Cinnamon is a great flavor for fall! They also have a maple spread as well. That's also a fall flavor and would love to try it. I love that the Jif brand is widely known and offered in many grocery stores! If you haven't checked out the Cinnamon flavor yet, go grab a jar!
