VITALICIOUS REVIEW & GIVE-A-WAY

Vitalicious mission is simple: to make healthy and delicious baked goods that are fortified with essential vitamins and minerals.

(One winner will win this exact SuperSampler that I reviewed from Vitalicious!!!)

So the other day my sister told me about a product called VitaTops made by a company called Vitalicious. She said that she had been eating them every morning and they were like the top of a muffin and that they were so good for only 100 calories a piece. I was so curious to try them and the kind people over at Vitalicious sent me their SuperSampler Pack to review.

So let me tell you more about Vitalicous before I tell you about the products I reviewed...

Vitalicious Inc. is the market leader of innovative "vital and delicious" baked goods that promote a healthy lifestyle, without sacrificing taste! Vitalicious is the first to market 100-calorie servings with a holistic approach to maximize satisfaction with minimum calories. Their products are low fat and high in fiber and nutrients. Vitalicious was founded in 1999 and has created a unique triangle of need-satifsfaction (All-Natural ingredients + Nutraceuticals + Weight Management), the only baked-goods company in this Niche!

(This is the yummy AppleBerry!!!)

So let me tell you about the SuperSampler Pack. It contains a variety of 100 Calorie Brownies & Muffin Tops. Here is what is included in the SuperSampler Pack that I received for review:


4 Low Fat Deep & Velvety VitaBrownies
2 Low Fat Chocolate Mint VitaTops
2 Low Fat Banana Nut VitaTops
2 Low Fat Triple Chocolate Chunk VitaTops
2 Low Fat Deep Chocolate VitaTops
2 Low Fat Fudgy Peanut Butter Chip VitaTops
2 Low Fat Golden Corn VitaTops

2 Low Fat CranBran VitaTops

2 Low Fat AppleBerry VitaTops

2 Low Fat RaisinBran VitaTops
2 Low Fat BlueBran


VitaTops Each muffin comes individually packaged and they do not contain any artificial additives or preservatives, so it is recommended that you freeze them upon receipt as they only last about 4-5 days just setting out.

(This is one of the yummy VitaBrownies)

These are sooooooo good! I love that they are only 100 calories. I know that it is so hard to eat healthy but Vitalicious really does make it so easy. I have kept them in the freezer and have popped them in the microwave for 20-25 seconds in the morning and have also popped them in the toaster as well! They are really good either way! My mom has taken them to work and let them thaw out until lunch and she said they are delicious too.


My favorites are the Triple Chocolate Chunk and the Fudgy Peanut Butter Chip! They are soooo good and make the perfect thing to eat for breakfast.


The VitaBrownies are really good too! They are so rich and chocolatey and make for an indulgent snack without all of the fat and calories! YUMMY!!!

Vitalicious not only sells their VitaTops and VitaBrownies but they also sell VitaMuffins, VitaCake, VitaMix and VitaCoffee!

You can purchase Vitalicious products at stores nationwide and on their website www.vitalicious.com or vitalicious.ca for Canadian Residents.

HARD CANDY PRODUCT REVIEW




I love trying new makeup. I love expensive makeup and I love going to Wal-Mart and checking out the makeup there as well. So when Hard Candy sent me some of their products for review I was so excited!

I had heard of Hard Candy a long time ago when it was sold at Sephora but never used any of their products. Well when I saw that Hard Candy was now sold exclusively at Wal-Mart I was so excited to try it. I've seen it several times there in the makeup aisle and the packaging looked great and the price even better! I'm not sure why I hadn't picked anything up before now.

Sorry about the big picture of my face ha ha...but I want you to see the Eye Tattoo's that I am wearing here, along with the 1,000 Lashes Mascara and the Visibly Wet Lip Pencil!

So let me tell you what they sent me...


1. Visibly Wet- this is their shockingly glossy lip pencil. This is available in 10 different shades. I honestly have never used a product quite like this before. So it's a pencil and when it goes on it really is super shiny and goes on so smooth! I was shocked at how glossy my lips looked with using a pencil! For only $6 it's definitely an awesome, unique product!!!

2. Button Your Lip- this is their full color liquid lipstick which comes packaged with an automatic coordinating lip liner! I love that they come together. Not many places sell a lipstick with a matching liner and it makes it so much easier picking out a color! You click the "button" on the end of this liquid lipstick and the color flows to the brush. It's very glossy and very rich in color. Another great product for only $8!!! Can't beat that for 2 awesome products.

3.
Curl up & Dye- curling mascara. What a funny name, something you will definitely remember, ha ha! This rich intense color mascara adds depth and curl to even the tiniest lashes. Well mine are definitely tiny and this did give them a boost of color and definition. It is a little bit more liquidy I guess you would say than I am used to in a mascara but I am kind of liking it! It goes on very well because of that factor and the brush is skinnier than that fat ones I have been using and I actually like that too. It makes it very easy to get color close to the lash line and for only $6 I think that is a steal when it comes to mascara!!!

4. 1,000 Lashes- this is a fiberized lash weave mascara. I was very interested in trying this product. I will try anything to get my lashes to look thicker and fuller and that's why I wanted to try this so bad! It is a fiber extension formula for lusciously long lashes. 1,000 lashes is infused with volume-building fibers that thicken, separate and lengthen lashes dramatically! The lash fibers actually adhere to your own eyelashes, acting like instant lash extensions. So after using this product I am very impressed with what it does. It is definitely different than regular mascara and does give your lashes a thicker longer look! I can't find the price for this, but I'm sure it's a great price just like the other products I have listed! If your looking for a different kind of mascara and want an extra boost I would definitely recommend this product!

5. Take Me Out Liner- This is a chopstick eyeliner. It comes in 10 regular shades, 5 glitter shades and 5 molten metal shades. It is a creamy eye pencil that delivers powerful, vibrant color that slides on smooth and stays soft and creamy for blending (about 30 seconds), then dries to a long-lasting finish that won't budge!

6. Just Nails- Nail color with a ring to it nail polish. This is a top quality formula. It is a long lasting, chip resistant polish that ensures flawless results with each application, and is DBP, toluene, and formaldehyde free! 1st of all I love the names of their colors like Pretty In Punk, Sweet P., Mr. Right and Mr. Wrong just to name a few ha ha! They crack me up! The colors are very pretty and for only $5 they are pretty great!

7.
Eye Tattoo's- This is by far the coolest product that I have tried from Hard Candy. I love all of my goods but this one is so unique and easy to use! This kit comes with 3 eye shadow sets. I got to try the Smokey kit which comes with a purple, a blue and a a grayish one. What you do is simply put the form with the color on your eyelid then kind of tap/rub it on your skin and when you take it off you have instant color! You then take the setting powder and brush that comes included in the kit and sweep it over your lid to ensure that it will last! I used 1 form on both eyes and there was still color let over. This is so worth the $10 that they sell for and are so much fun to use when you really want a pop of color on your eyes. They also come in fun sets like Glitter, Exotic and Animal, so much fun!

All in all I am very pleased with my new Hard Candy products! I love that they are available at Wal-Mart, I love that they are quality products at such a reasonable price and I love the rockin' look of the makeup and packaging as well!

JUSTMENSRINGS.COM REVIEW & GIVE-A-WAY



I know I do so many reviews on woman's and kids products and my husband always feels so left out! So just in time for Father's Day I finally have another men's review & give-a-way that I am excited to tell you all about!


We were recently sent a fashion ring from JustMensRings.com. We were sent one of their best sellers, the Tung12.

This ring was made by customer request. It is a top quality, 8mm width, tungsten ring that has the carbon fiber insert. Tungsten is very popular with men right now because it's a very durable, heavy metal, but still very comfortable to wear. It is cobalt free like all of their tungsten rings and is available in sizes 8-17.


The detail of this ring is so sharp!

The Tung12 usually retails for $169.95 but you can purchase it for only $69.95 at JustMensRings.com!

The Tung12 is sold as a fashion ring or
an alternative wedding ring which Craig is wearing!

It is very masculine which he likes and is also very modern with the 2 tone colors. His other wedding ring was very traditional and this is definitely a change in style for him! He loves how sturdy it feels, as it's a little heavier than his previous band, but is so smooth and comfortable to wear!

JustMensRings.com offers you so many items at everyday low prices and up to 75% off! They sell a variety of rings made from Tungsten, Titanium, Stainless Steel, Silver, Platinum, Palladium and Gold!

They sell Men's Fashion Rings, Wedding Bands, Designer Rings, Spinning Rings, Men's Bracelets and Necklaces.
With such a big variety to choose from there is something to fit every style and budget! If your looking for a quality men's ring, make sure you check out JustMensRings.c
om because I'm sure you'll find what your looking for!

PEVONIA BOTANICA REVIEW & GIVE-A-WAY


A few months ago I did a review and give-a-way on some Pevonia Botanica products and told you all how much I love this brand. Well the awesome people at Pevonia sent me a few more products to review and tell you all about!

They have so many different lines and with summer coming up they sent me 2 products from their "Sun" line! I love to be out in the sun and the hotter the weather the better for me! That doesn't mean that we shouldn't protect our skin while being out though.

Their Sun line motto is "Let the Sun Shine....Safely" - Maintain an active lifestyle while protecting your skin from the sun's harmful rays. High performing products deliver sun protection, post sun repair, and even a sunless golden tan!


Pevonia sent me their SPF 30 Hydrating Sunscreen and I have used this on myself and on Jace and Grady and I couldn't be more happier with it! First of all it smells great! I love the bottle itself. It is a great size: 5 oz, but not a tall bottle, just something that I can throw in my purse or beach bag and it's not going to take up tons of room. The cap screws on so it's not going to leak all over either! It's protects from harmful UVA/UVB rays, is enriched with vitamins E, C, and B and will hydrate your skin all while protecting it from the sun!

It retails for $40 and is very good in size and will last a long time!


The next product that I was sent is also from their Sun line and is their Phyto-Aromatic Mist. This product will refresh your skin and hydrate it when you spritz it on. Spritz this on your skin any time during or after-sun exposure for immediate hydration! I absolutely LOVE this product!!! I use this everyday and just spritz it on after I workout or when I just feel like my skin needs a little refreshing. It is made with a blend of Chamomile, Calendula, and French Rose so you can imagine how good it smells! This product will also restore and balance your skins natural moisture too!

It retails for $33 and comes in a 5 oz bottle!


If your looking for spa quality skincare products that are available for at home use, then I would definitely recommend
Pevonia Botanica. You won't be disappointed in their products!


*GIVE-A-WAY STARTS HERE*

The awesome people over at Pevonia Botanica are going to offer 1 of The Jackson Five Family Readers the chance to win their very own 5 oz SPF 30 Hydrating Sunscreen and 5 oz Phyto-Aromatic Mist! This is a $73 Value!

ELLA 2" SLR CAMERA STRAP REVIEW FROM CAPTURINGCOUTURE.COM





I love taking pictures with my big DSLR camera, even though I am in noway a professional photographer! I like to pretend to be one when I have it though and pretend that I know what I am doing ha! With that being said I also love accessories for my boring black camera and I was recently able to review a new, very colorful, fun camera strap from CapturingCouture.com!

Don't you just love that name? Capturing Couture, it's so catchy, isn't it! Well let me tell you a little about Capturing Couture before I tell you about my new strap! Their slogan is "Where Fashion Meets Photography!" LOVE IT!!!

Capturing Couture was founded by two working moms, Erika & Lisa, who both have an obsessive creative passion, spirited ambition, and a fearless hands on work ethic to make magic happen like their company Capturing Couture!

They combined their talents of photography and fashion and created a product collection fulfilling a market niche that has been, to this point, completely monochromatic! Their partnership celebrates their similarities and their differences, each piece in the collection an extension of their *girly glam* & *urban chic* styles and that's when they decided to merge the fashion and photography markets with the creation of the finest 'ultra chic, totally couture accessory' for anyone with a camera, thus creating Capturing Couture!

Capturing Couture
sells Camera Straps and Accessories that are the perfect marriage of *fashion & function*, using only the finest materials, custom made trims and highly functional hardware. Their mantra is *Living Life Through Art*...sharing their creative passions to make positive differences and have endless amounts of fun in the process!


So with all that being said, let me share my review with you all! I was sent the Ella 2" SLR Camera Strap from their Boho Collection which retails for $35.00. When the package arrived I was pleasantly surprised at how cute the packaging was.

It came in a black box and was adorned with the cutest teal tulle ribbon.

When I opened it up, the camera strap was wrapped in the most fun hounds-tooth tissue paper! I love nice packaging and they definitely have a great presentation going on!

The Ella 2" DSLR Camera Strap features a whimsical umbrella print that is so bright and fun, I love it! It features a comfortable neckpad with a plush velvet surface. This was my favorite part about it. Yes I love the print, but looks can only go so far when you are wearing a big, bulky camera hanging around your neck and this was soooooooo comfortable! Mind you I had been using the ugly black Canon strap that came with my camera, so this was like a luxury upgrade compared to that! It also features Nylon webbing for ultimate durability and adjustable features for preferred positioning!

It is 2" wide, 30-32" long with 6-8" additional adjustability as well.

I am so satisfied with this camera strap and couldn't ask for anything better when it comes to the fashion stand point, and the function of the strap. I can tell that it is very well made and is going to last me a very long time!!!

You can tell that Capturing Couture puts every last detail into their work, and even dot's their i's on their logo, on their tags and on the sewn on logo with tiny rhinestones! How fun!

If you are looking for a new camera strap, something that is fun, fashionable, and very modern, but also something that you don't have to sacrifice fashion over durability for, then check out Capturing Couture by all means because they combine both quality and style and I promise you, you won't be disappointed with either!!!

Another awesome thing that I LOVE about Capturing Couture is that they also sell men's styles that are so modern and cool.

Check out this "The Joey 2" SLR Camera Strap" for guys...I love the argyle style, it's so modern and masculine...





I wanted to show you a few more that I am in love with....

This is their "Turq Organza 1.5" Camera Strap" how fun would it be to sport this while your out shooting, what a fun way to dress up your camera and accessorize with your outfit...
I love leopard and what a fun animal print strap this is "Cheetah 1.5" SLR Camera Strap"...
