Coloring on the Go- Animals, #mandalas, and more.

Who doesn’t love coloring? It’s a great way to relax, and helps build focus at the same time. There have been tons of adult coloring books released in the past few years- of which I’ve bought quite a few. However, I noticed that there weren’t many that were really travel-friendly.

This adult coloring book comes with its own pouch and a hardcover design, making it great for travel. It measures 8.3 by 5.11 inches, and is wire bound to keep the pages securely in place without creasing them. The pages are thick enough to prevent gel pens or markers from bleeding through, and the nature designs are beautifully detailed.

I like to keep this coloring book and a set of colored pencils in my purse, so I can color when and wherever I want to. It would also make a great gift! I would definitely recommend it.

One step stool for all your needs- #Orgalif

Now that my kids aren’t quite so little anymore, they want to help out any way they can in the kitchen. To do that safely, they needed a step stool that was safe and sturdy, yet light enough for them to move around on their own.

This folding step stool from Orgalif is the perfect size for them, but strong enough to be used by the adults too, and it folds flat for storage. That’s definitely a plus, since space in my kitchen is at a premium already!

I’ve used this several times to reach the top shelves of my highest cabinets, and it feels very solid and stable when I’m standing on it despite its small size. It does have a weight capacity of 350 pounds, and the platform also has nonslip dots for added traction, so you can feel safe using it. I would definitely recommend having this one around the house.

Help your stomach to be healthy and happy- #corecare180

I often have stomach issues, ranging from pain and discomfort to bloating and poor digestion. A few of the medications I take daily are the main cause of those issues, so I’ve made a habit of adding probiotics to my morning routine.

Core Care 180 premium probiotic capsules combine 7 different strains of probiotics in an 11.5 billion CFU form, giving me just the right amount to keep my digestive tract happy and healthy.

In the past, other probiotic supplements I’ve used have either not been strong enough to be effective or have contained such high amounts of probiotics that I felt like they were a waste. Core Care 180 does just what I expect it to, with no surprises or unpleasant side effects.

Good and Good For You- #ActivaNaturalsBrandsWhey Protein Powder

I regularly incorporate protein supplements into my diet as either meal replacements or as post-workout drinks to help speed up my recovery time. However, for the most part I don’t really “enjoy” drinking the protein mixes I’ve bought. They either don’t taste good, or won’t mix well, or just don’t perform to my expectations.

Activa Naturals whey protein powder has 22 grams of protein in each serving, plus it mixes well in just a glass or shaker bottle, and it actually tastes so good that you’ll want to drink it. I love the strawberry flavor- it doesn’t taste like minerals, or have a gritty texture like a lot of protein supplements. And it absorbs quickly thanks to the digestive enzymes.

This protein powder is created with 100% natural ingredients, in the USA, to strict GMP standards so I am totally comfortable using and recommending it. I’ve been very pleased with the quality, taste, and performance of this protein powder, so I’d definitely recommend it.

Not your mother’s exfoliator. #leedgetool

The Le Edge tool is definitely a far cry from the typically abrasive exfoliating tools you’re used to. This little handheld exfoliator has a smooth stainless steel edge that makes it quick and easy to get smoother, softer skin from head to toe.

At first glance, you wouldn’t think that this would really do much in the way of getting rid of dead skin, especially if you’re used to loofahs, scrubs, and pumice stone like I am. However, after a soak in a hot bath I used this on my legs and feet, and was pleasantly surprised at how soft my skin was. This also works especially well for my face, since I have oily skin. It does a great job of getting rid of dead skin and gently clearing clogged pores at the same time.

The price point for this tool is kind of high at $70, and I doubt I would’ve purchased it at full price just because it would’ve been out of my budget, but I’m very happy with how well it works and I would absolutely recommend it. It’s perfect to use before shaving, giving yourself a facial, or applying self-tanner. You’ll get much better results with smoothly exfoliated skin!

A long-lasting, moisturizing lipstick that’s also organic and vegan- #Skin2SpiritLipstick

So many lip products have potentially harmful ingredients in them, which is scary since what goes on your lips ends up in your body. Skin2Spirit’s lipstick is lead free, petroleum free, non-toxic, cruelty free, vegan, organic, and phthalate free so you don’t have to worry about any of that.

It also glides on smoothly, has long-lasting, rich color (there are 7 shades to choose from!), and keeps your lips moisturized as well thanks to the botanical extracts and oils. I love the sugar plum shade, which is perfect for winter- it’s a reddish brown that can be built up for deeper color, with a hint of frost that adds a nice luster.

I’ve found that, unlike other lipsticks that tend to dry my lips out, this one actually makes them feel softer and smoother. The color lasts for hours, and doesn’t transfer easily. It doesn’t really taste like anything when I lick my lips, but it does smell like vanilla, which I love.

Here’s the complete list of ingredients in case you’re curious:

(* indicates certified organic)    Castor Seed Oil*, Beeswax*, Carnauba wax*, Candelilla Wax*, Sunflower Oil*, Shea Butter*, Cocoa Butter*, Jojoba Oil*, Coconut Oil*, Cetyl Alcohol, Phenoxyethanol, Potassium Sorbate, Oregano Leaf Extract*, Thyme Extract*, Cinnamon Bark Extract*, Rosemary Leaf Extract*, Lavender Extract*, Goldenseal Root Extract, Lemon Peel Extract*, Grapefruit Seed Extract, Vitamin E, Vanilla, may contain Mica, oxides

Can you really add inches to your bust naturally?

So, breast enhancement… it’s a delicate subject, but it’s one I know I’ve thought about. Realistically though, it probably won’t ever happen. It’s pricey, risky, and I don’t know that I can justify having elective surgery at this point. Plus, I don’t want to have bigger boobs- I just want the firmness and fullness I had before my boys were born!

I decided I would give these #BreastMaxPlus daily supplements a try to see if I could get some results just by adding a few herbs to my diet. These pills are all natural, totally vegan, and gluten- and cruelty-free, plus they’re made in the US, so I felt safe taking them.

The dose is two pills a day, which are easy to swallow, though not the best tasting things in the world. They have a very strong fennel seed smell, but once I swallowed them I had no issues. I didn’t notice any substantial change in the size of my breasts, but after about three weeks I did have a more full D cup that felt a bit firmer as well.

The main ingredients of this supplement are Vitamin E and fenugreek, with a blend of other herbs. Fenugreek is known to increase the size and fullness of breasts, as well as stimulating milk production in lactating mothers, so I would guess that that’s where the change came from.

Honestly, you could buy this supplement, or you could just look for a fenugreek supplement that would probably give you similar results- I haven’t compared prices, so that would be my deciding factor. Either way, these daily supplements are a much safer, less expensive alternative to cosmetic surgery, and I am glad I tried them.
