Circle 21 Candles Review

We love candles in our household. We have so many around the house in every room, even the bathroom. We're always looking for new fresh scents. I came across Circle 21 Candles and was sent one to review.

It is said that smell is the most powerful of the five senses, frequently evoking emotions and memories. That’s why at Circle 21 we rely on our personal experiences to inspire and shape the scent of each candle.
By carefully handpicking notes and blending each scent, our candles transport you to a favorite place or fondest memory.
Handcrafted in Texas, Circle 21 candles are mindfully designed and perfectly poured to create a high-quality, natural product to be enjoyed by all. So come away with us—explore familiar places, remember forgotten moments, and get lost in the scents that have shaped these favorite memories.


I received the Pompeii Cider Soy Candle, and then I was also sent little envelopes of all their scents to see what other candles they offer. As soon as I opened the box I went to light it. As soon as my fiance walked in the door he was in heaven. He was like "this is the candle we've been looking for". The scent is so fresh and so nice that it gives a great aroma to our kitchen/family room. We've been lighting it almost every day so far after work. We go through candles pretty frequently, so I won't be surprised if it's done in a few weeks.

Circle 21 Candles contain the finest soy which burns cleaner and longer than other waxes. Each is hand poured into recycled wine bottles. You can either get a green or white bottle for your candle.
Those are all the other scents that they offer. You can see them here. To check out the scent sampler before you want to buy, you can get them for 5$. When you're ready to buy a candle, they are 25$ each. You can buy online or you can see if the candles are sold near you. Love candles, and Love Circle 21 candles!

The Perfect Paleo Powder -- Clovis Nutrition Review

We are excited that you’ve stopped by to learn more about our company and our product, The Perfect Paleo Powder! Clovis is a developer of nutritional products dedicated to producing the very best fuels for the human body. We believe that a healthy lifestyle involves fueling the body with natural and organic whole foods, in specific combinations, that ignite the body‘s ability to properly process those fuels for maximum physical and mental performance, and for optimal overall health and longevity. We are confident that the time you spend on our site will be a worthwhile investment in your health and well-being!

So when you think of protein powder you probably think it's a diet supplement, or that it's a "protein powder".. but that's not the case... The perfect Paleo Powder is FOOD. 27 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber, 1000 milligrams of Omega 3's and tons of vitamins and minerals. There's a whole list of ingredients that's included in this powder, and to read them all because there are so many to name... you can see them here. There's no Soy, wheat, grain, dairy, gluten, and gmo. It's the perfect powder to have at anytime.. but I liked having it after my work-out. Post-workout snack. It's 100% Paleo. It only has to be refrigerated after you put water in it. --

While I may not follow the paleo diet... I do like consuming foods that are clean and made with real ingredients. I'm really glad I had an opportunity to try this paleo powder. It gave me a healthy alternative to what I would normally use after a work-out.. I enjoyed it, it gave me the energy I needed, and the protein I needed. Find out more on facebook, and twitter.

Regrained Review

"We love beer, but making it is inefficient. ReGrained recovers beer grain from local craft breweries...after they have already taken what they need to brew. Our craft brewery partners use only the highest quality grains to make our favorite beers, but only the sugars from these grains are needed for the beer. We take care of the rest."

I'm very strange when it comes to Beer.. I like certain kinds... and when I find a good beer I'm hooked for a few weeks. I think it's a really cool concept to make a bar that's made from beer. Their Tagline is "Eat Beer". Who would have thought that was possible!?!Theses bars are high in protein and fiber.
There are two kinds right now: Chocolate Coffee Stout and Honey Almond IPA. Don't worry guys.. these bars do not contain any alcohol. When it comes to the flavors... I'm more of a stout girl and less of an IPA girl. I think IPA's are too strong for me.. the strange thing though.. I liked the IPA bar more than the Stout bar. Crazy how these things work out. -- I think it's a really cool concept these bars.
"ReGrained repurposes “spent” beer grain, upcycled from the brewing process, to create healthy, delicious, and sustainable products baked with all natural, locally sourced ingredients."

It's definitely different. You can check out their website and learn more! Check them out on facebook.

Vital Proteins Review

"We believe that whole food based nutrition containing collagen is essential for one’s overall health, fitness and wellbeing. Our ancestors utilized sustainable whole animal nutrition, which provided an abundant amount of collagen. Over the past century modern food processing has removed this natural and healthy protein from our diets. Collagen is vital for our body and is the basic building block of skin, hair, nails, bones and joints. We promote optimal health, beauty, vibrant youth, and overall wellness with our products.
We are dedicated to providing 100% natural, whole food proteins that support animal wellbeing and sustainable eco-friendly practices. Our happy cows openly graze on lush natural grass pastures providing the highest quality of protein.
"

I received the Beef Gelatin and I shared it with my co-worker who works out all the time. This protein is 100% pure, pasture-raised, grass-fed gelatin powder. Benefits of Collagen: Promotes healthier skin, nails, and hair. Keeps bones healthy and strong. Supports joint health. Helps contribute to a healthy diet and helps maintain weight. Helps promote sleep quality.

I had the beef gelatin as a post-workout drink, and I also put it in my soup one day at lunch. I need lots of protein to stay alert and awake through the day. They have many recipes to use the gelatin in. I'll have to try some of these out someday! The gummy bears look so good!

Other products Vital Proteins offer: Marine Collagen, Collagen Peptides, Beef Liver Dietary Supplement, Collagen Whey, and Cartilage Collagen. -- I promote Collagen because of the benefits listed above. Plus: Collagen is an important building block for the skin. It makes up to 30% of the protein of the living body and 70% of the protein that makes up skin. To learn more about Collagen read here.. and to learn more about Vital Proteins check out their website and also visit them on facebook and twitter.

Endorfin Foods Review

Let's talk about this awesome Chocolate Subscription you can get your hands on. Endorfin Foods.
This bag that I received is 40$ - it's the Euphoria box -- you may think that's kind of pricey.. but not really. Look what you get inside: 9 pieces of chocolate.
What's included? Four Full sized limited edition bars made exclusively for subscribers. I received Flower Power 70% . Four small bars from their single origin and dark mylk collections. I received Mr. Pink.
Dark Mylk Chocolate with pink peppercorn and pink salt. And then one additional full size bar from their archive of award-winning best sellers. I received Passion.
Dark Coconut mylk chocolate with ginger and rose. I can't say enough good things about the Passion bar. There are so many good flavors incorporated into one bar, and it's unbelievably amazing.
There are two other boxes you can receive: Joy and Transcendence.

"All of the products in our monthly chocolate subscription boxes are crafted with care & integrity in Oakland, California using ethically traded, unroasted heirloom cacao, coconut mylk, and coconut sugar (a low-glycemic whole food sweetener). We are committed to making pure, wholesome chocolates with real ingredients, which means everything we produce is approved for vegan, paleo, and/or whole foods diets. All of the organic chocolate bars featured in our monthly chocolate subscription boxes are dairy free, soy free, gluten free, agave free, GMO free, and never contain refined sugar. Additionally, we strive to make the earth a better place one chocolate bar at a time, and are committed to utilizing plant-based biofilms, vegetable-based inks, and compostable/recyclable materials for 100% of our packaging."

Each piece of chocolate is made from scratch using the highest cacao they can find. They also use just the right amount of sweetener, spices and essential oils to bring out the flavor. They also do not roast the cacao beans and this allows them to deliver the maximum range of flavor & antioxidants possible with every bar they make. The bars don't include any dairy, soy or refined sugar. They are Gluten Free, and Non Gmo. Their packaging is unique too. It's definitely a talking piece too. So much conversation about these chocolates that are unique and taste good. Check out all the products they have to offer. Buy a gift for someone or even a subscription for yourself!

Simple Girl Review

Trying to live a healthier lifestyle has been quite tricky. I've been exploring different products out there to help me and I am excited to tell you all about Simple Girl products. Simple Girl is "We're a charity lovin' natural, sugar-free, low-fat food company with clean eating dressing & BBQ sauces here to enhance your fun & healthy life! ". -- I received a few samples of their salad dressing and bbq sauce to try. Totally glad I have had the chance as well. I've tried many salad dressings out there that have no sugar, and low sodium, and low carbs ect.. but they didn't taste good. Simple Girl products taste good without all the bad stuff.

"Simple Girl allows you to finally live guilt free and indulge in our delicious condiments. Our line was not only created for salads but also can be incorporated into pasta dishes, drizzled over grilled or raw vegetables or use as a marinade with your favorite meat, seafood or tofu dish! One thing that was important for us when creating this line was not only for our products to taste better then anything else available on the market today but also have a light, fun design, website, and social media channels. We want you to feel like you're a part of the Simple Girl world everywhere form our website to our feeds to your specially-wrapped delivery from us!"
I have a salad at least 2-3 times a week for lunch at work. I normally use balsamic/ or a hint of lime.. but this week I used my Simple Girl products. The other day I had the Sweet Vinaigrette.
It was sweet and definitely tasty. The best part of the dressing besides the taste? 0 carbs. No Fat. No Sugar. And only 4 Calories. Too good to be true? Not at all! The dressing is also Gluten Free and Vegan. I love that it is completely clean! I don't feel guilty after having it on my salad!
I had the Sweet Mustard today and boy was I in heaven. I have some left and I'm going to save it to marinate my chicken in. So many uses for these dressings. Check out all the varieties. What I'm really excited to try is the Carolina BBQ Sauce.
BBQ Sauce is one of my favorite dipping sauces. 5 calories. 1 carb. I mean amazing right?!?! They offer hot sauce and spices too! They also have a variety of recipes for the products. Find out more on facebook, and instagram.

Renuzit Sensitive Scents Review & Coupon Giveaway

Refresh your Scents. I love Renuzit products. I actually buy the Cones every month or so. I always try to find a nice fragrance as I keep these at my desk at work. I was surprised by Purex Insiders and received a few Renuzit products to try.
They have a new line out called Sensitive Scents. They are here to perform without over powering your nose. The best kind of scents are the ones that don't cause you a headache! They have three different scents for the line of Sensitive Scents: Pure White Pear & Lavender -- Pure Ocean Breeze -- and Pure Water Blossom & Cucumber. The best part? I received all three scents in a different product.
The cone scent so far is my favorite. It's the only one I've used so far. I brought it to work. I was out of my other cone scent and I needed something to mask the work smell. I received the Pure Water Blossom and Cucumber for the cone and it reminds me of spring. Thankfully Spring is only a few weeks away!

I also received an awesome surprise besides the Renuzit products... I received a 50$ Visa gift card. That's never happened to me before! I'm so blessed for that! Good things are coming this year even in the next month, and why not enjoy it with some amazing scents and surprises!?!
