Dr. Formulated Organic Digest+ Helps Me Get The Most Nutrition Out Of My Food & A Giveaway

         This past July I went to New York to attend a BlogHer conference. One of the companies that I got to meet was Garden of Life. They had these pink and blue guys handing out samples of  Dr. Formulated Organic Digest+ . I was happy to receive a sample! This wonderful sample of product has led to great digestion.

Garden of Life Dr. Formulated Organic Digest+ is more than than great digestion. These vegan chewable tablets help your body digest food and unlock it's nutritive value. They are great for your immune system function and help with stress management.  I love that it not only tastes great, my boys love them, but it helps my body absorb the nutrients from my food. These delicious chewables are made from 29 organic fruits and vegetables along with a powerful blend of 13 digestive enzymes. I simply enjoy one tablet after my meals to help my food digest. I find that these tablets help me also when I overindulged at a meal as it has Papain in it, an enzyme that breaks down protein. You will love that they contain less than a gram of sugar and no artificial flavors, sweeteners, colors, preservatives, fillers or binders. They also are Hypoallergenic, gluten, dairy, and soy free.

You can find out more about how Garden of Life Dr. Formulated Organic Digest+ can help with digestion and more by visiting their website. While you are there click the Where To Buy tab to see what stores near you carry these chewables. I have seen Garden of Life products at my Sprouts store.

21 Days of Beauty With Ulta Beauty

   Do you remember that box I received last week? The one that I received overnight from New York? Well inside was wonderful make up products from Ulta Beauty. They sent me these products so fast because they wanted me to share with you some wonderful sales that they have coming up starting September 6th. Ulta Beauty sales will feature the above products and many more. These sales will have products to make you look beautiful.

       I was never much into makeup as being a mom of five kept me busy and I had nice looking skin. I also hated the way too much makeup looked on my skin so I just wore foundation to even out my skin tone. When I went to New York in July, I had the opportunity to get some make overs and I told the consultant that I prefer the natural look. I got worried when she started using a lot of products on my face that I had never used. I found out that the products she used made me look great. So now I am experimenting with makeup. So when companies ask me to review makeup, I am happy to do so. So let me tell you about four products that I received from Ulta Beauty and how you can save money on them during the 21 Days of Beauty.

 The first product that I sampled was a face cleanser call Purity and it is made by PHILOSOPHY. This Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser deep cleans and eliminates makeup build up. I guess that now that I am wearing makeup that I need to wash it off my face at night. I love that this cleaner cleans and hydrates my skin. This cleanser lathers well and does not leave behind any residue that would make my skin dry. Philosophy Purity cleanser will be on sale starting September 6th and you will be saving $9.00 of the original price making the price $15.00. 

I discover the secret to great looking makeup is starting with a primer first. BareMinerals Prime Time smoothes away fine lines, dryness, excess oil, and reduces those large pores. It gives your makeup a smooth surface to start with and helps extend the wear of your foundation. I just love how much better my foundation looks after I use Prime Time. My skin feels soft and smooth after I apply this clear lotion like product. I even noticed that it made those fine lines less noticeable. On September 6th, BareMinerals Primetime will be 50% off.

       The next product was new to me as I never knew that my brows needed gel. Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel helps to keep those brows under control. For the most part my brows are covered by my bangs but I discovered that this clear gel keeps my brows nice and neat so no strays are popping out of place. I love that this clear gel has botanical conditioners and essential oils in it to keep my brows soft. I found it easy to apply too.  
will be half the price on September 7th which makes this product on sale for $11.00.

The last product that I received was a 4-1 mascara. I did not try this one as I do not like wearing mascara. Tarte, Lights, Camera Lashes 4-1 Mascara comes in a cool looking case that makes it easy to toss in your purse. This mascara is proven to increase the appearance of your lash volume by 330%, thus creating thick sexy lashes. I do like that this product is made without parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate and gluten. Tarte, Lights, Camera Lashes 4-1 Mascara will be on sale for $10 on September 13th.

So check out Ulta Beauty 21 Days of Beauty and discover these products and score some great deals! Here are the dates and links to the products again.

Philosophy Purity cleanser will be on sale September 6th for $15 reg. $24 

 BareMinerals Primetime will be on sale September 6th at 50% off

 ATTITUDE is a store that sells natural products for the whole family, including the pets. They founders created this website after discovering data on the website. This data stated that only about 10% of cancers are genetically inherited, the remaining 90% had to do with choices and lifestyles. They thought about how everyday products that people use can contain many ingredients that can cause cancer. Instead of feeling defeated by these findings and a sense of despair for the future, they took this reaction and turned it into action (and into products!). They created ATTITUDE to put those values into our bathrooms, and into our lives, in the form of products that give you peace of mind. They are happy to share these natural products for you to use in your home. They are dedicated to making products free of cancer-causing ingredients, even in trace amounts.

Hip Appeal Makes Carrying Your Phone And Other Items Easy When You Don't Want To Carry A Purse

  There are many days when I want to go somewhere and I just don't want to carry a purse. The problem is where do I stash my phone, keys and money? Sure I could put the items in my pockets but what if I am wearing something that does not have pockets? Then there are the times when my pants are a little loose and those items might make my pants fall down. Trust me it has come close to happening. When I am running, my pockets in my shorts are simply too small to carry my phone and keys. Those are items that are a must when I am running. So what is a girl to do?

  You wear a stylish Hip Appeal and look cute while being able to carry your phone hands free. A Hip Appeal is so much better tan a fanny pack as it is fashionable while being functional. Hip Appeal is an attractive fabric wrap that goes around your waist and features pockets to hold all the important stuff you need. This wrap comes in many colors so you can match any outfit and is great to wear while hiking, jogging, or just chasing after the kids. They are so darn cute that you will want to buy several colors to wear with different outfits.

  I just love wearing my Hip Appeal with skirts that have no pockets as I can stash my phone in it while I am at the park playing with the boys. This wrap fits snug around my hips so it is great to wear with my jeans that just don't stay up even with a belt. Now my son won't be embarrassed when my pants are showing too much skin. Yes, my 8 year old has told me to pull up my pants. Oh, the joys of boys. I just love having my hands and arms free when I am visiting places with my boys.

   Hip Appeal was created to provide a practical and fashionable alternative to the fanny pack. Realizing that the original fanny pack design, although useful, was not something most women would feel comfortable using, Hip Appeal wanted to find a better way. By creating a fanny pack that worked like an attractive wrap, they were able to find a way to make wearing your essentials easy, secure, and attractive! Instead of worrying about your wallet, Hip Appeal lets you get out and live the active lifestyle you.

Garden Of Life Raw Meal Is A Complete Great Tasting Healthy Meal & A Giveaway

        This past year I have made healthy changes to my diet as I wanted to look good for my daughters wedding back in March. My running was not helping me to lose weight so I realized I had to make some changes to my diet.  One of the things I did was to add a morning smoothie to my diet. The smoothie replaced my breakfast and this smoothie has helped me to not only look great for my daughter's wedding, but it has helped my body tone up. This smoothie was not an ordinary smoothie, it was what I like to call it,it is my powerhouse drink. It was loaded with nutrition!  My smoothie was made with protein powder, fruit, veggies, and supplements like matcha, spirulina, probiotics, and flax meal. My kids used to make fun of the color of my smoothie. It may have looked weird but it tasted great and it gave me great energy. It also filled me up so I did not feel like snacking. The best part of my morning smoothie was I not only lost weight but I toned up my body. I just loved how I looked and I was wearing smaller clothes. The only problem with my smoothie was having to gather up all the ingredients to make it every morning, it was time consuming, until now.

    I have discovered a new product that has all my smoothie ingredients and way more. Garden of Life Raw Meal organic shake and meal replacement has so much nutrition packed into it, it is just amazing. One scoop of this organic powder has 20 grams of protein in it along with a fiber blend, a 24 fruit and veggie blend, a 5 greens blend, and a live probiotic blend. I now can just take one scoop of Raw Meal and add it to a cup of water to make a better powerhouse smoothie than what I was making before. I like to add fresh or frozen fruit to the Raw Meal for added flavor. My smoothie that I had today was make with fresh peaches from my neighbors tree. Another great thing about Raw Meal is that I can make my smoothie the night before and it is still a great smooth texture in the morning, that way I can grab it out the door on busy mornings.

  Garden of Life Raw Meal comes in four fabulous flavors: Original, Vanilla, Chocolate, and Vanilla Spiced Chai. The Chocolate flavor tastes great on its own but the Orginal is unsweetened so it tastes great with fruit. I just love all the nutrition that this powder has and it is made with clean organic plant ingredients that are Raw, Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Soy Free, and GMO Free. It is loaded with 45 Superfoods, 21 vitamins and minerals, and 5 grams of fiber. All these wonderful ingredients will give you great energy and help you to stay full longer. My delicious meal that I can take on the go or drink at home will further help me build more lean muscle

I just love the shaker bottle Garden of Life sent me. I was able to mix up the chocolate flavor fast as it has a ball in it that helps to blend up the powder.

To find out more about Garden of Life Raw Meal, just click on the below link. I can purchase my Raw Meal at Sprouts. You can purchase this meal replacement online or use their Where To Buy link to see what stores near you carries Raw Meal.

My powerhouse smoothie helped me to look like this.
