Five Awesome Gift Ideas for The Adventurous Go-Getter

Five Awesome Gift Ideas

Five Awesome Gift Ideas for The Adventurous Go-Getter When you're looking for a birthday gift for a friend, it's always best to focus on that friend's personality and hobbies. Adventurous friends are likely to enjoy adventurous gifts. The best gifts for them are experiences or accessories to help them live out their adventures.   Water Bottles with Filters One of the best gift for a friend or family member who loves to hike or ski is a water bottle with a filter inside. Tap water is much less expensive than bottled water, and it's better for the environment to use a bottle with a built-in filter. Carbon filters and charcoal filters are both effective at removing chemicals and toxins from the water so it tastes pure and clean.   Blender or Juicer Another great gift for an adventurous person is a blender or juicer. This is something that people don't normally buy for themselves and they are likely to appreciate receiving it as a gift. Blenders are great for making … [Read more...]

Plan Toys Marble Run Deluxe!


My Thoughts on Plan Toys Marble Run Deluxe I love purchasing toys for the kids that really take them back to the basics in life. Plain wooden toys are not a thing of the past like some might think. With companies like Plan Toys they are alive and thriving. Still bringing all the fun, laughter and imaginative play to kids today. Plus with their Organic and Non-Formaldehyde toys it is even safer on the environment then ever before! Recently Thanks to Plan Toys I was able to review their Marble Run Deluxe. This is a toy that is labeled for 3+ but I knew that kids of any age would really enjoy putting together a fun track for their marbles to run down. My daughter and little brother who are both age 7 really have had a blast putting together all kinds of tracks for their marbles to race down. Plan Toys Marble Run Deluxe has provided hours and hours of play for these kids and it gets them away from their video games which is always a plus in my eyes! Plan toys has a large array of … [Read more...]

Antho Beauty Purists #Review and #Giveaway! Ends 4/20/13!


Antho Beauty Purists Review!   My thoughts on Antho Beauty Purists is simple, it captures everything we really desire in a skin care line and is affordable to do so.   Antho stands behind every single product they make and I cannot even begin to tell how excited I am after trying some of their products! I am truly in love with the lemongrass shire body scrub, strawberry dessert face mask and the face serum. More about that in a minute!   I at first was skeptical because knowing that they are organic, vegan, all natural and cruelty free sounded just too perfect. But think about it, Antho using fewer impurities in their products means that you are putting fewer impurities on your skin which is something that I for one desire and hope you do too!   Yet another great fact about this company and their products is that they are made in the USA and are eco-friendly! So after hearing about all the amazing facts about this company I will now tell … [Read more...]

  My Thoughts on Primula 3-in-1 Beverage System Summer time is around the corner which means fresh fruits and veggies, BBQ's and refreshing beverages! Primula's 3-in-1 Beverage System is my new favorite addition to my kitchen. I am a lover of water but there are times that I want a little flavor added to it without all the high calories. The Primula 3-in-1 Beverage System is a pitcher that contains an infuser for your fruits and veggies, a Chill Core that you can freeze to keep your beverage cold at all time, and a tea infuser for those delicious teas! As soon a my Primula 3-in-1 Beverage System showed up at my house I rushed to get it out of the package and put it to use.

Udderly Smooth Review!


Udderly Smooth® Review! My thoughts on Udderly Smooth® products – I simply have the driest hands, ever since my daughter was born I started using hand sanitizer so much that my hands would crack and bleed and now that my daughter is nine, my hands still need some serious moisturizing since my habit of hand sanitizing hasn’t subsided. Udderly Smooth® body cream isn’t flashy, doesn’t have sparkles in it, and doesn’t come in a variety of perfume scents. Udderly Smooth® body cream is just a white cream that you apply to your skin and once you do, you will see why this product doesn’t need to be flashy or mask itself with perfumes and glitter. This cream is absolutely amazing and it does its job better than I had ever imagined! I honestly cannot stand a hand cream that leaves behind a greasy feel, especially when you want to continue on with your day typing, driving, petting the dog…things people do. I do wish I had known about this product when my daughter was born because she … [Read more...]

RX Timer Cap Review!


RX Timer Cap Review! My thoughts on the RX Timer Cap – Safety should be a huge thing in every household and it is for my house and this product has helped in keeping everyone in check and safe. The RX Timer Cap is a brilliant way to keep track of the last time you took your medicine! Busy parents that need to remember the every 4-6 hours to give medicine to their children, or adults like myself who can’t remember exactly when the last time the pill was taken. If you are like me, you are going to love this product! This is simple and easy to use. The RX Timer Cap is like a stopwatch inside a lid and has an LCD screen that starts tracking time as soon as you put the lid on. Once you remove the lid to take your pill, it will reset itself back to zero and start over and keep track for you! The battery life on a lid can last up to a year! What I love is that the RX Timer Cap helps reduce the risk of overdose and also the risk of someone else opening up and taking your … [Read more...]

Gola Shoes Review and Giveaway! Ends 3/19/13!


My Thoughts on Gola Shoes As most of you know I have been going to the gym regularly. I am in desperate need of losing weight and I know that a gym membership and a trainer is the exact motivation that I need. When I made the choice to hit the gym I knew I was going to need some good work out clothes. This included a great pair of comfortable shoes. Unfortunately that is not what I purchased. I mean they were ok but after about two months of daily workouts I could feel my right foot sliding around sideways in my shoe. That is not really a feeling you want to have when you are jogging along on a treadmill. I knew after about two days of putting up with my terrible shoes that it was time to invest in some quality. That is when I came across Gola. To be honest I had never heard of them before but after a in depth investigation of their website I knew these were the shoes I needed for my daily workouts. Gola has lots of shoes and styles available for purchase but my favorite … [Read more...]

It’s That Time Again! Are you ready to grow your Garden?


  Now I know some of you may still be buried knee deep in snow and watching the icicles out your kitchen window and for that I am truly sorry about jumping the gun here on this post. Think of this as a way to help inspire ideas on how you are going to spend your time in the spring! But, for me here in sunny California, I can feel it, hear it and smell it, no not the traffic, I am talking about spring time! Oh yes its arrival is headed here sooner than we think! I can hear the birds chirping and I can see blooms on the flowers are starting to attract the bees. Now is the time to start thinking my friend. What will you be doing to your garden this year?! Or will you be starting a new garden or simply be planting some flowers?! I don’t know about you but I always have huge ambitions for gardening every single year and I only end up accomplishing a few goals from my dream gardening list but hey, it’s better than not crossing off anything on my list! There just isn’t anything … [Read more...]

Carmex Everyday Lip Conditioner Review!


Carmex Everyday Lip Conditioner Review!   My thoughts on Carmex Everyday Lip Conditioner - Winter has set in and oh how my lips have been a victim to the weather! My husband is also suffering from dry and cracked lips. We definitely were in need of something to get on our lips to help us out quick! Now, when I think of Carmex, I think that little white tin with the yellow lid. A little tin that everyone passed around and just seemed like a germ magnet. But I actually love the smell of original Carmex but that is about as far as my love goes with it. This is certainly not your old school style anymore; this is an updated style and also an amazing scent as well! This Carmex Everyday Lip Conditioner in orange flavor and in a little handy tube is something different than what you remember Carmex being. The smell is nothing like the original Carmex which is a huge plus to many of you. It smells like an orange creamsicle I am not kidding! I don’t know how they did that but it … [Read more...]

Artist on The Go Review and Giveaway!


 My Thoughts on Artist on The Go! My daughter is a little artist. She loves anything to do with art and even gets special time in her school classes to do art work as long as her homework is done. Artist on The Go is a great way to keep your little artist organized even while you travel! The Artist on The Go Kit contains a cotton carry case with a crayon holder, pencil holders and pockets. There is even a 6"x 9" recycled paper notepad, wooden pencil's, pencil sharpener and drawing stencils! This kit is really neat and creative. It will be the perfect addition to any road trip or while we are waiting for a meal at a restaurant. I love how environmentally friendly the kit is. It is also a great size for the little ones to carry and manage. The Artist on The Go kit is not the only thing sold by BeginAgain toys. Everything on the site is environmentally friendly. No matter if your child is a little artist like mine or a writer, inventor, sportster, a hero or a little beginner … [Read more...]

Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops Review!


Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops Review! My thoughts on Pine Bros. softish throat drops – Ok now first off, when I read the label, the descriptive word “softish” just made me giggle. A “softish” throat drop?! I actually was too excited to try these to wait for a sore throat. I opened them up and I took a picture of them next to a dime so you could see their relative size. But I put one in my mouth and oh my goodness, they ARE a “softish” throat drop! Right away I could tell these are going to be in my cabinet permanently just in case anyone in the family needs them. It’s good to have them on hand just in case in the middle of the night someone ends up having a sore throat. My daughter gets a dry throat frequently and wakes up with just a little irritation because she sleeps with her mouth open and I know I need to whip out the humidifier, especially since winter is upon us, but she popped one of the Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops and it helped to sooth her little throat. Her … [Read more...]

Resource Natural Spring Water Review!


Resource Natural Spring Water Review!   My thoughts on Resource natural spring water with natural electrolytes – Now everyone has heard of the advice that we all need to be drinking at least 8 cups of water a day. I definitely know that I should be drinking more water, honestly most of the time I do not get to the suggested 8 cups a day. Wait, does the water in my coffee count? Because if it does then I am definitely getting my daily limit in! Ok ok, it doesn’t count and I know that. But, I have had the opportunity to try Resource natural spring water with natural electrolytes in it and at first I was thinking, water is water…how different can it be? To much embarrassment of my husband, I have a hard time telling the difference between the tastes of many things including two major soda companies…I know, my taste buds just haven’t ever been that judgmental ok?! He rolls his eyes at me…but then this water came and I was excited to do a little experiment. We took a cup of … [Read more...]
