Chocolate Milk Yum! Horizon Organic lowfat Chocolate Milk with DHA Omega-3 Giveaway

Sunday, February 28, 2010 160
One of my favorite drinks as a child was milk but not just any milk... chocolate milk. It's creamy chocolately goodness was always a treat no matter the time of day.

Mmm chocolate milk!

"Horizon Organic lowfat Chocolate Milk with DHA Omega-3 provides a great tasting and easy way to add calcium and DHA to your family’s diet. DHA Omega-3 is an important nutrient that helps support heart, brain and eye health, and it’s available in lowfat half gallons."




Even though chocolate milk is delicious, I have always thought it to be less nutritish than White milk and have limited the amount my children consume.  However,  flavored milk provides the same nine essential nutrients as unflavored milk (calcium, potassium, phosphorous, protein, vitamins A, D, B12, Riboflavin and niacin), and can help kids meet their calcium requirements.

According to 2005 USDA data, 66% of the milk chosen by children in schools is flavored.  Which glaringly shows that a majority of kids Love the Taste of Flavored Milk. 

My kids really like the taste of this milk and say it taste just like they drink in school. Horizon Organic lowfat Chocolate Milk with DHA Omega-3 is a great way to give my children what they want while giving them the nutrients they need and I will continue to purchase it for them as long as they will drink it.


What is DHA?


DHA belongs to a category of healthy fatty acids known as Omega-3's. Found in high concentrations in the tissues of the brain and eye, DHA Omega-3 is thought to help support healthy function in these areas. DHA has also been shown to help support heart health.



DHA provides a nutritional boost for children's growing minds and bodies. Children's brains grow incredibly fast. In fact, the brain nearly quadruples in the first five years of life.


DHA is a key structural component of the brain, yet many young children don't get their recommended daily amount of DHA as it is found in a limited number of food sources.


Horizon Organic Milk Plus DHA Omega-3 is fortified with a natural, 100 percent vegetarian and sustainable source of DHA - a safe, wholesome, delicious way to bring more of this important nutrient into your family's diet.

CSN Stores Review

You may remember me telling you a few weeks back about how excited I was that I was going to do a review for CSN Stores.com.  CSN Stores offers a large selection of items for most home and office goods and with over 200 stores and products ranging from kids bedding to Barstools it was very hard for me to choose which item I wanted to review.



I decided to go with a new desk because I had wanted one for some time. My small workstation that I have been using... just wasn't working.





I quickly found what I was looking for at CSN.com... A beautiful, modern desk that has plenty of room for writing as well as holding all my necessary materials. 





•Contemporary black glossy powder coat frame with chrome accents

•6mm / 5mm black tempered glass for safety


•Chrome cylinder glass supports


•Pullout keyboard tray with room for a mouse


•Spacious desktop workspace


•Ships ready to assemble


•Product Dimensions: 33.5”W x 21.5“D x 58”H



It arrived fairly quickly in a matter of 3-4 days and was extremely quick and easy to put together.  We managed to have the whole thing set up in less than 30 minutes and the majority of that time was deciding on where to put it.



When I was ordering the desk I was a little leery about it's sturdiness since it  is made of glass but it actually seems quite durable and I believe it will last a long time. The List Price of this desk is: $200.00 but CSN is selling it for $65.99 with free shipping and it is worth every penny. I have purchased more expensive poorly made desk in the past and they have not stood the test of time.


No matter if it's a piece of furniture or an appliance that you're looking for, you should check for it at CSN  first, as there's a good chance that they carry it and at a fair price.



Disclosure: CSN Stores provided me with free product to review, I was under no obligation to review it if I so chose. Nor was I under any obligation to write a positive review in return for the free product. Furthermore, the experiences/ opinions posted above are that of my own, your experience with this product my vary.

Student of the Month!

Friday, February 26, 2010 4
I know that it is unattractive to brag but....
I am so proud of  L.C that I have to! He has been selected as the February Student of the month at his elementary school! They surprised him with a special breakfast of donuts and juice and presented him with a badge this morning. 

He was really behind when he came to this school;  They have way higher standards than the one he attended previously that he never seemed to be able to catch up.  That was just over a year ago, and now he is getting A's and B's!

Vat19 Review


I really like Gummie Bears, they are so cute and delicious... especially the red ones.



Don't they look yummy?


Well...  I am sure that they do not taste as good as they look.  Else you enjoy getting your mouth rinsed out with soap.  Thats right these may look like your average Gummy Bears but they are actually Glycerin Soap. The Mini Gummy Bear Soap is the same size, shape, and even smells like the real thing!  They look adorable on my bathroom counter and I can not wait to hear the reactions from our guests. 




Mini Gummy Bear soap is available at VAT19 for $6.95 and contains five each of lime, cherry, lemon, orange, and pineapple-scented Gummy Bears.

Even if you're not in the market for Mini Gummie Bear Soap...  Vat19 is still worth checking out. They have many unique and fun items that would make perfect gifts.

Give them a treat that they will love...Cuties California Mandarins Review and Giveaway!

Wednesday, February 24, 2010 228

As a mother... I am always on the look-out for healthy snack choices for my children. Fruit is always a popular choice not just amongst the kids but by us adults as well. I was really excited to be given the opportunity to review Cuties, not only are they the perfect snack size they are absolutely delicious. I must warn you though... when they say that they won't last long they are not over exaggerating, we had a 3 lb bag gone in one night. I actually shouldn't say we it was more like they, because I only managed to snag one. (I swear my husband probably consumed over half the bag himself.)




California Cuties are two varieties of mandarins: Clementine mandarins and Murcott mandarins. You can purchase Cuties in a 3-lb bag or a 5-lb box. Although they are a tasty citrus fruit, Cuties are not "little oranges" contrary to popular belief. 

Cuties have several distinct characteristics. This makes them the perfect anytime, anywhere snack. Unlike other mandarins or oranges they are:

Super Sweet
Before a mandarin can earn the Cuties label, it must meet rigorous standards for sweetness, peelability and absence of seeds. For sweetness, Cuties must contain a minimum sweetness level. Unlike some imported fruits, Cuties super sweet taste is always 100% natural

Easy to Peel
Kids love Cuties because their naturally loose skin makes them a cinch to peel. Which means they don’t have to ask Mom or Dad to help them - they can do it all by themselves. And the peel comes off cleanly, so there's no pulpy or juicy mess.

Seedless
One more reason parents and kids love Cuties: no seeds to spit out (or clean up). And to keep them seed-free, Cuties are protected from cross-pollination and tested at harvest. Of course, the occasional seed may slip by. But hey, nobody’s perfect.

And of course...
Kid Friendly
 Good things come in small packages. Unlike their bigger cousins, Cuties are the perfect size for kids’ hands. And because they’re so small, all that juicy sweetness and healthy nutrition is concentrated into a few tasty bites. So toss a few into their lunch packs. They won’t last long!


Since Cuties are sweet and not bitter, they are great to eat by themselves and I imagine that they would taste great in a fruit salad or as a salad topper as well. Cuties are only available at select retailers, I found them at Wal-Mart, Target and have seen them at Meijer as well.
  


Giveaway
 
3 Winners will receive (1) free product coupon.


To enter: Check the Where to Buy section on the Cuties website to make sure they are available at a store near you.

Elaine Brown tells us How to Select the Best Wedding Band for your Marriage

Marriages are made in heaven and to make this day unforgettable in every person's life, certain traditions have been followed since ancient times. One of such customs is wearing a wedding band. The shine and glitter of the wedding bands remains the same even after the fun and gaiety of the marriage fades away, reminding you of the wedding vows of eternal love.



As wedding bands are very special to you, similar to wedding rings, you could well choose from the best in the market. Many leading stores offer you a wide range of wedding bands to pick from; for example, if you your jewels to be sparkling and showy, opt for a golden wedding band with a rosy-pink or yellow-gold shade. You can also choose a platinum band if you want to gift an exotic wedding gift to your partner.



Check if your partner loves stone-studded jewelry? Then, choose a band with bright and unique diamond stones. Eternity wedding bands are a perfect complement to your engagement or wedding ring.



To add more uniqueness to your wedding band, you can choose a common element for your wedding bands. The designs may not match; you can choose the same metal for bands for both of you.



Once you have decided about the metal that the band should be made of, you just need to go to a popular and trustworthy jeweler. He would provide you with catalogs of awesome collections of wedding bands, such as Celtic or Trinity wedding bands, uniquely carved and designed to rightly make your wedding unforgettable and the most cherished memory of your lifetime.

Keeping nice and toasty with Golden Moon Tea- Kashmiri Chai Tea Review.


Over the the last few months, I have had the great opportunity to review several Golden Moon Tea products. Each Tea I have received has been of the highest quality and the flavor combination extraordinary. The latest tea I had the pleasure of sampling was Kashmiri Chai and I have to say it is one of the best tasting teas that has ever graced my palette. It ranks very high on my list of favorites right up there with Coconut Pouchong.




 "Kashmiri Chai is an exotic, spiced loose leaf tea from the Himalayas of Northern India. Aromatic and warming, natives of India often comment that the authentic and delicious recipe reminds them of home. Serve with cream and honey for a rich treat."

Golden Moon Tea's  Kashmiri Chai tea blend is very well balanced;  All of the flavors come through without completely overpowering the black and green tea base. This unique tea base has a smooth, rich flavor; when paired with the whole cardamom seeds, cloves, spice oil and cinnamon the end product is ideal for a pleasurable and unique tasting experience.


Whether you plan to drink it warm or cold, with or without milk the mixture of flavors gives you a nice warm cozy feeling. Which is great especially in these cold winter months.

Golden Moon Tea- Kashmiri Chai is available in the  following sizes....
Sample $0.99, 4.0oz Tin $13.99, 1/2 lb Bulk Bag $17.59 and in 1 lb Bulk for $31.99 and can be purchased at goldenmoontea.com.

Jenulence Mineral Makeup *Giveaway and Review*

Saturday, February 20, 2010 380



"If you can't eat it, don't use it on your skin"-Jenya

Jenulence is a small family owned company, that was created in February of 2003 out of their love for all-natural and pure cosmetics and skin care products. They only use pure cosmetic grade minerals and pigments to manufacture all Jenulence mineral makeup making them 100% natural. You will not find any artificial ingredients in their products. Not only are Jenulence products very environmentally friendly, they are also biodegradable and never tested on animals!

Jenulence has a wide variety of eco-friendly products ranging from Mineral Makeup, Bath and body to a full line of products for men. I recently had the opportunity to try three products from Jenulence mineral makeup line! The products I had the pleasure of reviewing are Mineral Makeup Eye Shadow in Dark Silver Matte, Mineral Blush in Currant Satin Blush and the Sea Shell Mineral Foundation Powder.



Mineral Makeup Eye Shadow: Dark Silver Matte: Very dark asphalt-gray color matte eye shadow. May be used as an eyeliner color or as a brow color.



I have been using this eyeshadow daily as an eyeliner and absolutely love it. It blends very nicely giving me a soft line instead of the harsh line like a traditional eye pencil. Another nice thing about this eyeshadow is that whether I use it has an eyeliner or shadow, it stays fresh all day long. There is no need to reapply! 

 

Currant Satin Blush- Satin Collection cool pink matte mineral blush.

 

This blush is a very pretty shade of pink, and it goes on silky smooth giving me a nice natural glow. A little bit goes a long way, a light dusting is all you need to liven up your checks and like the eyeshadow it stays fresh all day.

Sea Shell Mineral Foundation Powder- Formulated for lighter coverage for fair skin tone. It has neutral ivory color.Use it as a facial powder or as a foundation by adding more thin layers. 

 

I am not a huge foundation fan at all... I can never get it to blend perfectly into my skin and always end up looking like a clown.  I haven't had any problems applying this foundation it is very light and doesn't look caked on. If you are like me and have trouble with foundation, I would recommend that you give it a try. 

One of the best things about this foundation and all Jenulence products is that they are available in many sizes from full, economy, and trial size jars to three different sample sizes starting at just $1.00. So if you are looking for the perfect shade or are just curious about mineral makeup and do not want to invest in a full size product, a Jenulence sample would be the perfect solution.

Giveaway
 
Jenya, the owner of Jenulence has very graciously agreed to give... (1) 3-piece mineral makeup gift set to one winner!

Hairfreé makes cleaning your hairbrush a snap! *Giveaway*

Friday, February 19, 2010 256



Hairfreé™ brushes are unlike any other styling brushes on the market today.  hairfreé™ brushes are very versatile, in that, no matter your ethnicity or the type of hair you have, be it fine, thick, curly or straight hair hairfreé™ brushes work well.  hairfreé™ brushes can be used as, a regular styling brush or a vent brush. 

 Used as a regular styling brush the ceramic coated plates are flush with the body of the brush.   Used as a vent type brush the ceramic coated plates are positioned away from the body of the brush, about halfway up the length of the bristle.  This position creates a “vent” between the plates and the body of the brush. The venting along with the ceramic coated plates speeds up the drying and styling your hair.  Using hairfreé™ as a vent brush also changes the length of the bristle.  This in turn allows the user to either create a larger curl or add more fluff to ones hair.  

In addition to being versatile hairfreé’™ is a very hygienic free hair brush!  Hence the name: hairfreé™.  Since hairfreé™ is so easy to clean, after you remove the unwanted hair, you can sanitize hairfreé™ by washing it with warm soapy water and then rinsing.  Stand hairfreé™ on its end and let dry.  hairfreé™ will never rust.  There is no longer any excuse for you to not to clean your hair brush after every use.   This insures that hairfreé™ will always be hygiene free. 


 I am horrible at keeping my brushes clean and free of hair, I would rather just throw them away than to have to take on the time consuming, disgusting task. With the hairfreé brush keeping my brush clean is no longer a chore and something that can be done in 2-3 seconds. This alone makes the brush worth buying.

Because of the ceramic plates and coated bristles the hairfreé brush can be used to straighten or curl your hair; Simply by adding a little heat from a blow dryer. 

"hairfreé™ with its ceramic coated plates is making use of the most current hair drying technology and methods."  Some of the benefits associated with Ceramic technology include:




  • Creating a smooth and polished effect with added natural shine.



  • Aids against static build-up.



  • Whilst drying the hair the heat is equally distributed for fast and effective styling.



  • Hair straightening or curling.  

     
Hairfree brushes were just recently included in the gift bag event at the Sundance film festival and the Miss America Beauty Pagaent. They will also be included in the gift bag event for the Bachelors and the gift bag event for the Oscars in March.

Odds are you will not be attending any of these events... 
Don't worry, you do not have to be a celebrity to receive a set of hairfree brushes...
Joe from hairfree is going to give away a set to one of you!

My Addiction to Cola: Zevia All Natural Soda Giveaway!

Thursday, February 18, 2010 328
 I am addicted to soda, and my addiction shows through my always expanding waistline. I can not go a day without it and to be completely honest, you wouldn't want to be around me if I tried. In my quest to live a healthier lifestyle I decided it was time to slow down on the Coke...don't go there, I'm talking Coca-Cola here and tried changing it out with Diet. I am not a huge diet soda fan and it was hard finding one that I actually liked.



When I came across a review for Zevia an all-natural diet soda while doing my daily blog reading. The blogger (for the life of me I can not remember who) was boasting about  how delicious it was and how it had replaced her diet soda. This immediately sparked my interest.. maybe just maybe this was the soda for me. I contacted Zevia a few days later and asked if they would be interested in sponsoring a review. Not only did they oblige but the also wanted to hold a fun giveaway for all of you! More on that later...



What is Zevia you ask?

"ZEVIA is the first all natural zero calorie soda. With only pure ingredients, ZEVIA contains none of the chemically processed artificial sugar substitutes, artificial flavors or artificial colors found in other diet sodas. ZEVIA is all-natural, has zero calories, zero net carbs, zero fat, and little or no sodium (depending on flavor)."

 ZEVIA comes in 7 varieties - ZEVIA Natural Cola, ZEVIA Natural Orange, ZEVIA Natural Twist, ZEVIA Natural Root Beer, ZEVIA Natural Black Cherry, and ZEVIA Natural Ginger Ale.


Much to my surprise...  I wasn't a huge fan of the cola. In all fairness that  may be  because I am so used to the high sugar, caffeine fueled variety The orange and the Black cherry were a completely different story I absolutely love them both. The kids really liked the Natural Twist, I managed to swipe a drink of one of theirs (you know for review purposes).  It didn't have a diet taste at all and is definitely something I would allow my kids to drink.

While I don't think I am fully able to give up my addiction, I will definitely purchase Zevia in the future. Zevia can be purchased online for  $23.99 a case and can also be found in select retail stores.
