Have a Very Merry UnBirthday with an Alice in Wonderland, Mad Hatter Tea Party Birthday!

Have a Very Merry UnBirthday with an Alice in Wonderland, Mad Hatter Tea Party Birthday!I have always loved Alice in Wonderland, both the books and the classic Disney movie. My daughter and I decided it would be a lot of fun to host a Mad Hatter Tea Party for her birthday. It is a lot of fun to create a party from a theme that is not "in" or "popular" or "new." Parties like these make me stretch my creative muscles and I won't [more]

Butternut Squash Soup with Organic Squash from Hometown Harvest

Butternut Squash Soup with Organic Squash from Hometown HarvestButternut Squash Soup is something I really enjoy eating. It is not a dish I have ever tried making. When I got my Hometown Harvest bag I found a nice sized organic squash tucked inside. Originally I thought, I will chop this up and sauté it with some olive oil and zucchini. My friend however challenged me to step outside my cooking comfort zone and make a soup using my [more]

Ozeri 360 Tower Fan Review!

To say I’m a fan of fans might be an understatement. I sleep with 2 fans running, if the room has a ceiling fan it is on, and when it’s hot outside I have an extra floor fan running. I’m not obsessed or anything, I get hot easily and I enjoy air that is circulating. Like you aren’t weird when someone isn’t watching?

Ozeri 360 Tower Fan Review!

All that is to say that I know my stuff when it comes to fans. When I was asked by Ozeri to try out their new 360 Tower Fan naturally I agreed. I haven’t owned a tower fan before and this one comes with so many cool features it makes my favorite box fan look like a dinosaur.

The Ozeri 360 Tower Fan (model no: OZF5) Features:

  • Remote Control – turn it on/off, change modes, set timer, speed and more without walking over to the fan. 
  • LED Display- easy to read with options to dim it for nighttime use
  • Speed- choose from High, Medium, and Low.
  • Timer
  • Oscillating- 60, 90, 12, or the full 360 
  • 3 Modes of Breeze
    • Normal
    • Nature
    • Sleep
  • Thermostat- when in use, the fan will decide the proper speed setting to achieve the target room temperature. 

This fan has lived up to my standards. Not only does it look sleek it works great. The Ozeri Tower Fan is not a noisy fan, even on High setting the fan was relatively quiet. I used the fan in my room and in my living room. Not having to get out of bed to turn on the fan after I was finished reading was amazing just so you know. In my living room the fan was situated in a far corner and I could still feel the airflow from the couch. The Ozeri nighttime setting makes the display dim so it won’t distract you from sleeping. All in all an awesome product and high quality that you would expect from Ozeri. 

Verdict: The Ozeri 360 Tower Fan is a great buy for anyone looking for a fan. I would recommend this product for use at home, in the office, or the dorm room.

Show Your College Student Love with Pijon Box! #DeliverLove

Do you remember college? Adjusting to life as a semi-adult, living with a stranger who may or may not be crazy, and barely surviving off your meal account? I remember eating food I wouldn’t dare eat now but it was all I could afford while working and putting myself through school. My roommate (luckily not crazy) and I would sit around and make wish lists of our wants. How awesome would it have been to actually have those wants taken care of? 

Luckily, I survived college and went on to being able to take care of myself, eat right, and being able to buy ketchup instead of stealing borrowing packets from the student hall. But I don’t think I will forget the leaner times of college anytime soon. Wanting someone to show they cared was a big deal to a lot of us. That is why I am excited to share about PijonBox and their unique service for showing your child that you are thinking about them.

Deliver Love to your favorite college student with PijonBox

Pijon Box Natural Snacks, products and other fun stuff for college students. Monthly care box for students as low as $25/month!

Pijon makes it easy to show your student that you care. The giver can choose from a male, female, or neutral box. Subscriptions are available for 1 semester, 2 semesters, or monthly and starts as lows as $25 a month! PijonBoxes are packed with delicious and healthy snacks, healthy and beauty supplies, household essentials, and fun gifts.

Each month the PijonBox is based on a different theme. The March box was “Get Energized” and it was packed with products to help keep you focused and fueled for the month. 

  • TOCCS Panorama Earbuds. Perfect for your workout or just running across campus to your next class, these earbuds will keep the music flowing and your body moving! 
  • Energems Candies. Every college student needs energy. These little candies are chocolate covered sweet energy packed with B vitamins and caffeine. 
  • Revolution Tea. I am a big fan of tea and all it’s health benefits. Not only can you use it to rehydrate after a workout but tea also fights to keep you healthy. Tea has the same health benefits as one serving of veggies. Revolution Tea comes in several flavors- my favorite is the raspberry black tea.
  • Not Your Mother’s “Plump for Joy Thickening Hair Lifter.” Just because a girl works out doesn’t mean she can’t look good doing it. Ensure your hair always looks it best using this. It’s totally up to you if you want to let your friends in on the secret. 
  • Pan De Oro Organic Tortilla Chips. Did someone say snack time? Post workout is the best time to snack because your body is primed to digest foods and you’re most likely ravenous. These chips are the perfect reward for a hard workout.

Pijon not only dedicates time  to create and deliver these packages but every PijonBox sold contributes to these much needed packages for kids. As a mom, as a human being, this makes my heart happy.

Change the Way You View Armpits with the New Dove NutrimMoisture Deodorant! $1 Coupon Savings Inside

Shaving.

We all have to do it and I would guess that most of us are not fans of it. At least I know I’m not. It is a necessity though but having sensitive skin makes it quite an unpleasant one. Legs can be bad enough but I really dislike how my armpits look after shaving. Armpits aren’t the most attractive thing on anyone, probably right below elbows on the list of qualities you find good looking on someone else. Shaving is harsh on sensitive areas like armpits. I know mine always look bumpy, rough, dry, basically NOT PRETTY.  I’ve tried putting lotion on them, don’t laugh, but it didn’t do anything but burn so I resigned my hopes of better looking armpits.

Fresh Express Salads Make the Swap! #SaladSwap

Being the healthy minded momma that I am doesn’t mean I don’t crave that occasional not-so-good for you food. Or the husband begging me to let him have something deep fried. Coming up with tasty and nutritious dishes can be a pain, especially if I want something specific like a big greasy burger. Enter Fresh Express to keep me from derailing my eating plan!

 

Fresh Express Salad

I’m a big fan of Fresh Express for a few reasons. Their products are picked fresh and bagged without the use of nasty preservatives. They also offer salad kits which I find perfect to take to dinner parties and playdates. Fresh Express offers organic salad bags as well that won’t break your food budget.

Now I can add another reason to love  them. The new Salad Swap site and app! Fresh Express is making it easy for all of us to keep those health goals and enjoy keeping them. With Fresh Express Salad Swap I don’t have to sacrifice tasty for good for me, it’s a win-win!

Sign up at SaladSwap.com to find delicious recipe ideas and download the app from iTunes or Google Play to have access to recipes, calorie tracking, and more! Enter codes found on Fresh Express bags for the opportunity to receive additional Fresh Express coupons. 

What I really like about the Salad Swap site and app is the innovative way they help you swap meals. Instead of just saying oh hey don’t eat that burger eat a salad, Fresh Express matches the flavors you’re looking for with a yummy, healthier version of the foods you’re craving. 

For example, I love pizza. Today I am really, REALLY wanting pizza. However, the races I’m training for are saying yeah you shouldn’t be eating pizza. *sigh* So what’s a girl to do? I selected pizza from the Salad Swap selections and was suggested Pizza Antipasto Salad.

I feel a lot better about 220 calories per serving than 430!

 
My husband loves chicken salad sandwiches for lunch. I made my own Salad Swap, and packed him this healthy chicken salad with Fresh Express Spring Mix and Baby Spinach to take to work. He loved it and thought it was more filling than his usual sandwich. Score one for the healthy wife!
