Eco Logical Sunscreen Review and Giveaway

I don't know about you but during the summer I crave the water; lakes, rivers, pools, you name it I want to be there. I don't know about you but being a lobster is no fun, so I always use sunscreen. I had the opportunity of testing out eco logical skin care's all natural sunscreen. As someone who is just starting to use all natural products I was excited. These sunscreens are SPF 30+ which is great. They have three different types; body, baby, and face. I received all three of these. The sunscreen is really thick and white, I was scared I was going to look like a ghost. Fortunately the body sunscreen blended in and didn't turn me or my friend white.

The sunscreen is hypoallergenic, reef safe, biodegradable, and offers superior protection. It even offers some certified organic ingredients. I liked the body one, it didn't come off easy after getting wet like most sunscreens, I was confident I was protecting myself from the sun. The face one's ingredients slightly differ, it's supposed to be non-greasy. I found the face one a little too greasy and slimy to use on my face, but it worked good on my body. Overall I recommend this brand of sunscreen.

ChopSaver for people with lips

How cute is the title? So for those of you who have no idea and thought ChopSaver was some kind of kitchen tool I have news for you. ChopSaver is an amazing lip balm.
Smooth sexy lips, we all strive for them. I've tried so many lip products; however I haven't found one that makes my lips feel as smooth and silky soft as they do with ChopSaver's lip balm. I was fortunate enough to get to try ChopSaver's Gold which contains SPF 15. I'm really picky about tastes. This one tastes like normal chapstick with a little citrus which isn't too bad. I wish it had more of a flavor/scent, but it is all natural and gluten free so that makes up for it. My lips get pretty dry especially in the Califonia sun. ChopSaver is perfect for those of you who suffer from cold sores, it helps heal them faster. After using ChopSaver for a couple of days my lips feel bigger, softer, and my lines aren't as noticeable. ChopSaver was invented by musician Dan Gosling. I highly recommend ChopSaver, you can wear it everyday or just when you need a little extra moisture and protection from the sun.

Arnicare Gel Review & Giveaway

Summer is here which means tubing, hiking, biking, and more outdoor activities. If you are like me you probably suffer from some kind of pain, whether it be back, knee, shoulder, or anywhere else on your body. I'm tired of spending money on creams and gels that are sticky and smelly. Not to mention made of so many ingredients, this gel only has six ingredients. Look no further, the company Arnicare has come up with a solution called Arnica Gel. It's a homeopathic medicine made from a mountain plant related to a daisy. This gel is non sticky and even helps reduce bruises. I used it the other day on my sore back and I have to say this helped out. I've used other topical products, but the scents always bother me. I'm prone to migraines so I have to be careful, this product didn't have much of a smell. This product is a little runny, but it's clear so I'm not too concerned with making a mess. After applying to my back and rubbing it in, I felt almost immediate relief. My brother does manuel labor for his job and today he came home sore complaining of his knuckles and shoulder killing him. I told him to try some of my Arnica Gel. Needless to say I have to buy my own gel now. He liked it so much that I'm not getting it back. The one drawback to this product is that it doesn't last as long as I would like it to. For under $10 you can't go wrong with this product. What are you waiting for? Go to your local CVS, Walgreens, or natural store and pick up some Arnicare Gel or enter below to win one for free!

Your Novel Review & Giveaway

Do you like to read? How about Romance novels. I had to opportunity to review a personalized e-book. For those of you who don't know an e-book is a book you read electronically. let me choose my book and then personalize it with my name and some of my likes as well as picking a guy to accompany me with on this wild ride.
The story I picked was called Danger in Dublin. Taken from yournovel's website "This personalized eBook takes place in the charming and historical city of Dublin, Ireland, where the Book of Kells is a national treasure and there's a friendly pub on every corner. You'll find yourself visiting sites in the Capital of Ireland and innocently falling into a dangerous situation that will test your wits and your will to survive." It was a pretty good story. It was shorter than I expected, about 34 pages including cover pages. In my opinion it wasn't very romantic, it was more thrill. The wild version which I picked wasn't wild at all; but I didn't mind. I'd really like to try more books. I love that it's personalized, it allows me to better picture myself in the book. You can even include your picture on the cover if you would like.
Ordering this book was super easy. Their website was easy to use and super easy to input the personalized information in. What's great is Your Novel has been in business for over 20 years. They have 47 titles ranging from secret spies, to vampires and others. The ending was a little predictable but any other ending and it wouldn't have been as romantic. You can tell these authors definitely put thought in their books. They even travel to the different settings so the novel feel even more real. Overall I highly recommend buying a personalized book for you and your someone special. It's great for an anniversary or anytime you want to spice up your love life.

Snack Taxi Review and Giveaway

 Have you guys heard of the awesome company called Snack Taxi? Well now you have! Snack Taxi creates reusable bags called snack-sacks and sandwich-sacks among other items, which you can carry your food in. These bags are machine washable and free from lead, phthalates, and BPA. They are perfect for holding your sandwich and chips among other things. They come in many cute designs and even have some labled nut free and gluten free, perfect if someone in your family has certain diet restrictions. Even better these are made in Massachuesetts! By using your Snack Taxi you are helping keep up to 1000 plastic bags out of landfills, not to mention saving money. I brought mine to work the other day and my coworkers loved my fun design, and the fact that I was saving money by not using plastic bags. They are easy to wipe out and clean.

This bag actually works, the only suggestion I have is that it would be great as a zippered bag. The velcro doesn't hold the crumbs in as well as I would like. I really like the fact that it's so versatile. I love using it to store my stethoscope for work, I know where it's at and that it is being stored in a super cute bag. It even works great to hold my camera when I lost the bag and didn't want my camera to get scratched. I highly recommend Snack Taxi and you can try one out too. Snack Taxi is going to let one lucky reader win the desserts snack-sack featured below. Don't forget to check out Snack Taxi's facebook page.

Reb'l Fleur by Rihanna Eau de Parfum

So I just graduated my Medical Assisting program and landed a job at our local jail. As my graduation gift my grandma's friend bought me some perfume. Not some cheap perfume either she bought me Rihanna's new scent Reb'l Fleur from Macy's. I really like the packaging, Rihanna is super cute with her red hair. The bottle is also interesting. It looks like a dress to me. The smell is pretty strong you only need one or two sprays and it seems to last awhile. Quoted from Macy's
"Daring, sexy and truly memorable, Reb'l Fleur is the first fragrance from Rihanna. Plump fruits, red berries, plum and juicy, ripe peaches, make a delicious first impression, while sumptuous florals and warm base notes create an impression that is defiantly sexy." I'm not big on perfume's especially strong ones since I am prone to migraines and I work with inmates/patients who also can't handle strong scents. On my day's off from work though you will probably catch me wearing this on a special occasion as it doesn't seem to give me a migraine. For those of you perfume addicts I highly recommend trying this product out, it's not too floral or too fruity. It's a decent mix of the two, which I can hardly ever find.
