FreakerUSA Review

Freaker USA was established in 2011. They are located in Wilmington, NC (only 2 hours away from me), and they were featured on Shark Tank (don't you just love that show?). What do they do? They prevent moist handshakes and sweaty beverages! So what are they exactly? Very awesome cover-ups for your bottle beverages. They keep your drink cold, and fit beer bottles, wine bottles, soda bottles, ect.

Crunchy Mama's Review

A stay at home mom who has been making personal hygiene products and toiletries for her family, and her sister n law, teamed together to sell organic skin care products. The products are chemical free, homemade, and they were excited to share a few with me!

Take a look at what I received!





I also received another chap stick, but for some reason didn't upload a picture of it. Anyways, let me tell you, I'm a chapstick fanatic. I have a chapstick in my car, in my purse, in my bedroom (next to my bed), at work... kind of obsessed, but the weather has been so strange lately, that my lips get chapped easily. I also like when chapstick (lipbalm) smells and tastes just like the flavor. I was sent orange, lemon, and mint, and they smell and taste just like their name. I just have to remember not to leave it in my car when it's so hot outside!

I was also sent grapefruit hand sanitizer. The Sanitizer doesn't leave your hands dry, sticky, or even smell like alcohol like the other ones out there do. One quick squirt on your hands and you're good to go!

The last item I was sent was a scab stick. The scab stick helps cuts and scrapes heal faster. I haven't used this yet, but excited to try it out.

You should really check out the website and explore their products. They are so creative looking! Their prices are very reasonable as well! If you want to learn more about Crunchy Mama's Products you can find them on facebook, or you can read their blog! Check them out today!

Beanilla Review Part 1

In 2005 Beanilla was born. They wanted to share their passion of vanilla with everyone. I love baking cupcakes and most every cupcake recipe I have uses vanilla. I am very happy that I have a change to make my own Vanilla Extract. In 8 weeks I'll be back to share my results.


What makes this better than store bought? (taken from Beanilla website) "First, you have control over the quality and type of vanilla used in the extract. Using premium grade vanilla beans will provide significantly better flavor and aroma than commercially produced extracts." So how do you make this you may ask? Take the beans out, and split them lengthwise,add 8 ounces of alcohol. I'm going to add vodka. After 8 weeks, the vanilla should be ready to use. I'll be taking before and after pictures for the review part 2.


Until I come back with the finished product, you should check out Beanilla on Facebook, as well as Pinterest.

Two Fat Guys BBQ Sauce Review

So I recently moved to the south, well 3 years ago recently, and bbq is HUGE down here. It's funny because when I lived back up North, when I thought of bbq, I just thought of bbq chicken, or bbq sauce, I never though of anything else. I remember my mom wanting to try pure bbq when I first moved to NC, and I was totally against it. However, after living here for a bit, bbq is just a normal thing to hear now. I'm a huge fan of bbq sauces now too! So when I stumbled across Two Fat Guys bbq I had to see if I could sample some!




I was sent the Smoky bbq sauce. Every drop keeps you coming back for more. It isn't too hot, and not too mild, a perfect combination, and leaves a little smoky flavor as an aftertaste and it's really good. The first time my boyfriend and I tried the sauce was with our chicken kebabs. Very good!




The other sauces they have are: Mild, Spicy, and Lava Hot. I almost requested Lava Hot since I'm a huge fan of anything spicy/hot, but the boyfriend wouldn't have been able to handle the heat. The bbq sauces are gluten free, high fructore corn syrup free, fat free, and cholesterol free. On the website there is a spot that allows you to find recipes you could use with your bbq sauce. It's funny because tonight my boyfriend cooked bbq pulled pork. I just found out that there's a recipe for that as well! He used the whole entire bottle, and he's really happy with the taste. I'm a little disappointed he didn't save any for me, since I don't eat pork :(


If you're interested in learning more about Two Fat guys bbq sauce, you can check out the website. You can check out what other people have though about the sauces as well. They are all pretty positive, and I can agree with what most of them say! I'm very happy I had a chance to try out Two Fat Guys BBq sauce! I definitely wasn't disappointed!
