The Wonders of Seabuckthorn Oil – SeabuckWonders Review

Posted in Healthy Living, Reviews
on March 9, 2017

Even though I eat really healthy (mostly), I still like to incorporate supplements into my diet, mainly because I have this bad habit of forgetting to eat during the day (I’ve been doing better lately, though) & I want to make sure I am getting enough nutrients.

One of my favorite recent supplements that I have been taking is Seabuckthorn Oil. If you haven’t heard of this nutritional powerhouse, allow me to introduce you…

Wondercide “Detox Ultra-Pure Bentonite Clay for Cats & Dogs” / Review

Posted in Healthy Living, Pet Health
on February 27, 2017

 

Wondercide was founded after the owner, Stephanie Boone’s dog, Luna started experiencing serious side effects from a vet prescribed flea & tick treatment & developed pesticide poisoning. After nursing Luna back to health (and ignoring vet’s suggestion to put her down), Stephanie began researching pesticide formulations, their impact on human and animal health, regulatory laws and federal environmental policies. What she found was enough to motivate her to leave her current job and create Wondercide. TheirΒ line of safe & effective natural products helps to protect families without using harsh or toxic chemicals.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), 80% of our pesticide exposure happens at home (and we’re not talking about your food!). Wondercide replaces the products used on families, pets and the home that typically contain these dangerous chemicals.Pesticide exposure is linked to childhood cancers, chronic allergies, developmental diseases, and poisonings.

Get Your Sweat On With Pommello Sweats!

on February 1, 2017

Hi, my name is Sabrina & I have a fitness addiction. If not for some annoying (and sometimes debilitating) health issues, I’d probably be working out 7 days a week, an hour a day. Β Also, I love pizza, so I kind of have extra motivation! πŸ˜‰

Because of some health issues I’ve been dealing with, I’ve stayed away from doing fitness type posts, but when Pommello Sweats reached out to see if I wanted to test their wares (namely their sleeveless workout top and capri pants), the workout junkie in me couldn’t say no!

Hello, beauties! I recently wrote a post on 16 of my favorite products from 2016 (see here), but because there were just soooo many wonderful brands I had tried last year that I haven’t yet got a review on, I thought I’d include some of them here. This will {hopefully} be a regular series where I’ll share my monthly favorites that will include products both purchased and gifted.

Posted in Uncategorized
on January 20, 2017

Green beauty has been around for awhile now and as more and more people continue to jump on the safer choices bandwagon (and it’s a damn good bandwagon to be on!), more companies than ever are scrambling to offer their own greener choices in the hopes of cashing in on this ever growing trend.

And while there are many brands that truly do set out to make cleaner and greener products, some of these brands are nothing more than wolves in sheep’sΒ clothing, pretending to be clean and eco, when they are nothing of the sort.

Yalmeh Naturals Review

on January 10, 2017

Yalmeh Naturals was born out of a desire to provide natural, non-toxic & effective skincare without a high price tag. As a young woman living in Turkey, founder Jacklin Yalmeh suffered from dark circles and sagging under her eyes. She tried many of the high-end European brandsΒ but was disappointed with both the results (or lack of) and the toxic ingredients that were used in them.

Determined to help her issues, she began to study how to combine natural & plant-based ingredients into product formulations that would be both effective and affordable. Her one rule was “no toxic products in my brand!” And so you won’t find any cancer causing additives, mineral oil, sulfates, propylene glycol, GMO’s or parabens in any of the products they offer. Their products are also 100% cruelty-free (most are vegan).
