OZ Naturals Ultra Ageless Eye Crème

OZ Naturals Ultra Ageless Eye Crème is made in the USA. It's 99% natural and is made with ingredients to help your skin look your best. It is proven effective for many eye and facial concerns.

Some of the powerful ingredients include:

Matrixyl synthe'6 - evens skin and smooths wrinkles from the inside out - mainly on the forehead and crow's feet around the eyes.

Astaxanthin - a powerful antioxidant with anti-inflammatory effects that defends skin cells from free radicals.

Algae extract - nourishes, protects, and hydrates skin with vitamins and minerals and also provides wrinkle preventing properties.

Carrot root extract - contains many anti-aging properties, acts as an anti-inflammatory, and has been known to help reduce wrinkles, scarring and stretch marks.

I've used this under my eyes the last few days. It does seem to help lighten my dark circles a bit and also reduce the puffiness I have when I wake up in the morning. It has a nice clean scent to it and soaks in quickly. It doesn't leave my skin greasy. I did try a bit on my forehead area but it seemed to tingle slightly so I haven't used it again there. I've not noticed any tingle when using under my eyes so I will continue to use it for that purpose. That is where I have my main issues anyways.

You can find OZ Naturals Ultra Ageless Eye Crème on Amazon.

Fé Fit Women's Workout Program Review

This Fé Fit Women's Workout Program came just in time for me to get back on track. The holidays are always a busy time and with all the extra holiday goodies a quick workout always makes me feel better. I don't belong to a gym so I rely on my own home equipment and lots of workout DVDs to keep me in shape.

This program comes with 28 workouts on 8 DVDs. It has 7 different fitness genres including cardio circuit, core, lower body, upper body, total body toning, barre, and stretch flow exercises. I love that it has so many different ones to keep me from getting bored. Plus I feel like it's really working every part of me because of the variety of workouts. The program is easy to follow too because it has a calendar and even stickers so you can keep track of where you're at. There are actually a few different calendars you can choose from depending on how many times a week you want to work out.

I'm still working my way through this because I've only been using it for just a little over a week. I really like the whole overall package. The videos are well done. The set is very bright and colorful and Hilary, who leads the workouts is very motivating. She's encouraging but not in an annoying and over the top way. She has a pleasant voice. I also really like that the other women in the videos are normal looking. It feels very much like it would be if I was in an actual studio participating in a class.

Each workout has a warm up and cool down. The background music is nice and not overpowering. You can also choose to shut it off if you like. One of my favorite workouts is the barre one. I've only done the first one though and I imagine they must get harder as you move along further in the program. It reminds me so much of a class I took while I was on vacation visiting a friend out in Malibu. It's just something totally different than I've ever done before.

I look forward to continue using this program and can't wait to see how much better I feel and look once I complete the 90 day program. I'll be sure to do an update once I've finished!

R'stoyours Reusable K-cups Review

We love our Keurig machine but don't like to spend the extra money on buying K-cups. We also like to try new coffee all the time so these R'stoyours Reusable K-cups are perfect for us. We can use any coffee we want with these. Not only do we save money with these but also we are not filling up the trash with empty little containers all the time.

They open and close easily and have a hinge at the back so it will last longer. Once it's used it's just a quick rinse and you are ready for another use. I do like that this comes in a 3 pack so you can always have one ready to use or if you have a couple people making different coffee they don't have to wait.

Be sure to check what style Keurig you have. These work with the 2.0 & 1.0 and also the B40, B50, B60, & B77 versions. They are not compatible with the Keurig B100/B1000/B2000/3 Keurig Brewer.

I've had no issues with these reusable K-cups. They work great and make a delicious cup of coffee. They also feel really sturdy so we should get a lot of use out of these.

You can find these R'stoyours Reusable K-cups on Amazon.

Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder Review

I have been using Matcha for awhile now. It gives a nice boost of energy. Some people prefer this to coffee because it doesn't give the jitters like coffee sometimes does. I just like the taste of it! This USDA Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder  can be used for lattes, smoothies, and baking.

 I really enjoy having a Matcha smoothie in the mornings to get me going. I use almond milk, a banana, frozen mango chunks, and Matcha green tea powder. I sometimes add in chia seeds too. It's such a tasty treat and it's pretty too!

Matcha is a natural metabolism booster and doesn't have any negative side effects. It can help lower your cholesterol. It also contains L-Theanine which enhances mental clarity and focus for up to 6 hours. It's best to drink it 15-30 minutes before a workout to enhance fat burning.

You can find USDA Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder on Amazon.

Simply Earth Pine Essential Oil Review

This Pine Essential Oil from Simply Earth is 100% pure. It's non toxic, has no additives, and is undiluted. It has a woody, evergreen scent that is similar to natural turpentine. It's origin is Hungary and it's packaged in the USA.

This has a nice fresh woodsy scent. It might be a little stronger scent while in the bottle but once you disperse into or onto whatever you're using it for it is a bit lighter scent. We got a fake tree for the first time this year. A few of our kids were missing the real tree scent so as soon as this came I dabbed a little bit on small pieces of cloth and put it randomly in the tree. Instant real tree smell!

Simply Earth is a small Eco-friendly, purpose driven, family company What's also wonderful about this company is that 13% of the profit from your purchase helps end human trafficking.

You can find this Pine Essential Oil on Amazon or by visiting their Simply Earth website. They also offer other oils and products. Be sure to check them out.

The Best and Lightest - Cookbook Review

Food Network to the rescue! Their new cookbook The Best and Lightest will have you in the kitchen preparing some of your favorite dishes but with a lighter version. Each dish is under 500 calories and still portioned to fill you up. Each recipe comes with all the nutritional information listed.

I absolutely love the way this book is laid out. At the beginning is a recipe index with a small photo and the dishes are labeled vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free if you need that info. The book is then broken down into 9 sections including soups & stews, sandwiches, poultry, meat, fish & seafood, eggs, tofu, & beans, pasta & grains, side dishes, and sweets. A fun little added 2 pages called Snack Time is tucked in between each of the sections. They have quick ideas to kick your snacks up a notch.

The book contains a photo for every recipe which I love. I am a visual person so pictures of what my food is to look like makes me happy! The book has so much variety. Something for everyone in it. The soups & stews might be my favorite section of the whole book. I want to make almost every recipe in that section! The Slow-Cooker Sweet Potato-Lentil Soup looks amazing! I do however have the Indian Chicken Wraps, Spanish Chicken with Potato Roast, and the Baked Fish & Chips marked to go on our menu shortly.

Chomps Snack Sticks Review

Chomps Snack Sticks are made from 100% Non-GMO grass fed Angus beef that is sourced from New Zealand. They are Gluten Free and contain no artificial ingredients. They are Whole30 approved. Chomps are great for a quick snack before a workout. They are a perfect healthy snack for kids also. My crew think they will be great for stashing in their backpacks while out hunting all day in the woods.

Chomps come in three flavors including Original, Hoppin' Jalapeno, and Crankin' Cran. Each stick contains 9 grams of protein. They are individually wrapped and are shelf stable for up to a year because of the celery juice included. You can easily toss one in your bag, desk, or car so you can snack healthy anytime.

Excellent snack when walking the trails.

We liked all three of the flavors. With six of us in the house we liked the variety. My personal favorite was the Hoppin' Jalapeno. It had just enough kick to it for me. The Crankin' Cran was just a bit too spicy for me but my husband and boys like it. The Original was of course liked by all of us. These are the perfect size and when you need a quick snack. We also liked that they were not greasy like other snack sticks out there.

If you are looking for a healthier snack option be sure to check out Chomps Snack Sticks. They'd also make a great stocking stuffer! ;)

Dare To Dream - Book Review

I had not heard of Debbi Dachinger before reading Dare To Dream. What an inspiring and motivating book! There is something for everyone in this book. Whether you are needing to conquer fears, deal with forgiveness, or just need some motivation to find happiness and set goals in your daily life, this book has it all.

This book was an easy read. Although I do feel like I need to go back and reread a few sections that I feel I need to really work on in my life. I loved the stories she shared and also the sections called "Your Turn" that had space for me to work on what I needed to.

You can find Dare To Dream on Amazon. You can also find out more about her by visiting her Debbi Dachinger website.

At the beginning is also a section about citrus basics like buying, storing, zesting, and juicing. It has desserts, beverages, salads, and main dishes to name a few. A few recipes that stood out to me are Clementine Curd, Lime Chicken Curry, and Lemon Gateau.
