~Gladhair Review~

Tired of the same old hairdo?  Gladhair offers a good variety of quality hair clips that are very pretty!  Ever since I was little, I have liked hair accessories (what girl doesn't?:).  So it was exciting to be able to have an opportunity to try out a few of Gladhair's awesome hair accessories!  They most kindly sent me their Swarovski Bobby Pins with Crystal Stones,
 Blue Silver Sleepies with Coloured Daisy Top - 4cm (1.75in) - Pair snap barrettes,


and the Double Comb with Beads and Rose.






(The pouches that the hair products arrived in)
All of the above products really dress up any hairdo and make it simply beautiful.  What's really convenient about Gladhair is that if you want a cetain item in a different color, you can select from a variety of colors before ordering (for certain products).  

The Swarovski Bobby Pins were the perfect accent when I wore my hair in a flipthrough for a church event on Saturday.  Sunday morning I put my hair in a bun, using the Double Comb with Beads and Rose as the "centerpiece".  (Unfortunately, I don't have a pic of that:(  Here's some photos of myself wearing my new hair accessories...

Closer up:)

Good Kind Natural Coffee Creamer Review & Giveaway~ 3 Winners!!!


"Our Beginnings

We were sitting in a restaurant drinking coffee one day, and along with the sugar came some fresh cold cream. We began imagining how great it would be to have that same natural cream flavor, but with the ease and convenience of an instant coffee creamer.
We realized that while there were plenty of artificial cream substitutes, there were no natural creamers that fit with our dynamic lifestyles. We wanted a high quality, natural coffee creamer that we could use anywhere - home, office or travel - and never have to worry about refrigeration.
That’s when the idea of GoodKind was born."


Good Kind generously allowed for me to review their Fat Free Vanilla Coffee Creamer.  Now my mom is the coffee drinker in our house, so she picked the flavor out:)  It arrived really quickly, before I was expecting it!  My mom tried it soon after, and she really enjoyed it!
Looks terrific!
  Normally my mom uses liquid creamer, but the Fat Free Vanilla Creamer (she liked the fat free aspect of it, too:) tasted just like the liquid kind with a rich french vanilla flavor.
 
What the actual creamer looks like (please excuse the bad photography:(
And no refrigeration is necessary either- great for vacation!  Look at all the benefits of GoodKind:
 
"The Natural Alternative to Artificial Coffee Creamers

•GMO- and rBST-free
•no trans-fat
•no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives
•no hydrogenated oils
•no refrigeration needed
•contains vitamin based anti-oxidants
(E and C)
•a great source of calcium
•gluten free
•made in USA
•and, it tastes great!"

Wow, you just can't beat that!  Did you notice that GoodKind is made in the U.S.?  Mom appreciated that fact!

And GoodKind is most kindly offering 3 of my readers each a $10 off  their 1st purchase from GoodKind!

Zebra Pen Review & Giveaway!!

When I write I'm always needing white-out (okay, not always:) because unfortunately, I tend to make a good number of mistakes.  So it was fantastic when Zebra Pen offered to let me review a pack of their Erase Away Pens in black. 
I keep one in the little cupboard inside my writing desk, and the other in my Bible cover.  I love the fact that if I mess up, just erase, and it won't leave a messy smudge.   Like I never made a mistake in the first place! 

{The Erase Away Pen in red}

"With stale development in the erasable pen category, yet a staple on every back-to-school list, the Erase Away is a noticeable upgrade to its competitors. Its unique retractable design is a significant benefit to traditional stick erasable pens, eliminating the chance of losing the erasable function if the cap is misplaced. In addition the barrel is thicker with a textured rubber grip for a sleeker look and feel. (ARV $3.98/2 pk)


· Medium 1.0mm point size
· Technically advanced erasable ink in a retractable design
· Erasable ink allows for smooth writing and easy erasing
· Erase and rewrite without any damage to the document
· Sleek designed barrel with textured rubber grip
· Available in blue, black and red ink"
I don't know about you, but I like to actually SEE how things work.  So here's a few"visuals"...:)

Ready to write!
A game of tic-tac-toe with my brother:)

Just like a normal pen!

Erase Away Pens can be used for just about anything-from writing in a journal, writing a card, jotting down the grocery list, etc.!  Not to mention they are comfortable, too!

Zebra Pen carries other awesome writing utensils like these...

~*~Endangered Species Chocolate Review~*~

Mmmm... chocolate seems to hit the spot year round at any time or day- whether to make that classic s'more, in a fondue, or just in your favorite candy bar! It's one of my favorites (like you didn't already know:-) 

Endangered Species kindly sent me three of their all-natural chocolate bar flavors to review... Dark Chocolate with Cranberries & Almonds, Milk Chocolate with Almonds, and Dark Chocolate with Deep Forest Mint. 

Of the three people in our family that tried all three flavors, we enjoyed the Milk Chocolate with Almonds the best of all.  (In our family, we are like milk chocolate over dark, but that's just our preference:)  It was excellent.  The crushed almonds add a nice extra crunch to it.  It's not going to last long!  I think it would be a delicious ice cream topping!
You can break them into perfect bite-size squares!

Both dark chocolate were very rich, and you can tell the chocolate is great quality!  The Dark Chocolate with Cranberries & Almonds have just a hint of cranberry flavor which is good if you don't like "fruity chocolate."  The Dark Chocolate with Deep Forest Mint, on the other hand, has a pretty good flavoring of mint.  Endangered Species Chocolate bars are great for summer vacations as I brought the mint one along on our trip earlier this week:)  Be sure to check all their other fantastic products like the following:

Chimp Mints (What a cute name!)
 
"Presence. Planet. Prosperity.

Starting out as a humble chocolate company nestled in the Oregon’s Rogue Valley in 1993, Endangered Species Chocolate was created to spread awareness and make an impact on the growing number of plant and animal species disappearing from the Earth. We began with a line of twelve all-natural chocolate bars that sold well in small natural food stores across the northwest. Today, we are one of the leaders in natural and organic chocolate manufacturing. With more than 30 all-natural and organic products, our chocolates can now be found in large and small natural and conventional grocers throughout the U.S.A. and Canada. Based now in Indianapolis, Indiana, we remain privately-owned and operated and are inspired to expand on the original ideals that started this company.
About Endangered Species Chocolate
Who are we? Endangered Species Chocolate is a mission-driven company that is passionate about chocolate and the environment. We are fully committed to providing premium, all-natural, ethically traded, naturally shade grown chocolate products. Endangered Species Chocolate confirms that all beans used in its products are purchased from family-owned properties where the income benefits the community. 10% of our net profits are donated to fund species and habitat conservation efforts. Savor chocolate. Save our planet."

CertainDri Anti-Perspirant Review + Giveaway!

A hot summer day could be summed up in one word... sweat (excuse me for being so blunt)! 
CertainDri contacted me, and was wondering if I'd be interested in hosting a review and giveaway for their new Solid Anti-Perspirant.  Of course, I couldn't turn down that offer- so here it is!  CertainDri Anti-Perspirant  is a great solution in eliminating excessive odors, and is "The strongest available formula without a prescription"!  


 

The Solid Anti-Perspirant has a strong pleasant scent of powder, and will even stay on after showering or bathing!  It worked pretty well for me.  Great for playing sports, biking, swimming, etc.!  Here's a couple facts about it:

~ "The number one over-the-counter antiperspirant recommended by doctors for treating excessive perspiration; more than 40 millions adults and teens believe they have a problem with excessive perspiration"
 ~ "provides 72-hours of protection with each application"
~ "Retail price of $5.50-$6, almost 30% less than the other clinical strength antiperspirant products"
Nice 'n' fresh!

They also offer Certain Dri Feet and anti-perspirant in roll-on form.

What to hear a great deal?  CertainDri is having as giveaway contest EVERY DAY on Facebook!
"For the 100 days from Memorial Day to Labor Day, Certain Dri is giving away one Certain Dri Anti-Perspirant every day.
