Zoku Neat Stack Giveaway

 Storing food has never been so easy!

 I received a Neat Stack to facilitate this post but opinions are my own

 I like things organized in my kitchen. One of the places that I have been working on is my food storage and how I store leftovers in the fridge. I like leftovers as it means that I don't have to cook the next day or my family has food to pack for their lunch the next day. So when I cook, I make extra food for other meals for my family.

  Over the years I have collected a huge amount of food storage containers for the purpose of storing food for leftovers and packed lunches. I have also bought many different styles of plastic containers to help with food storage. Most of these plastic containers have not lasted that long as they were cheap and the ones that survived are stored in a cabinet that is quite messy. My husband says that my food storage container cabinet is out of control! I agree that my plasticware cabinet is out of control and I need help!

Take back your cabinet space 

   So I decided to do something about my plastic food storage cabinet, the one that has lids falling out everywhere. The cabinet where the kids just toss the containers into when they unload the dishwasher. The cabinet that I am afraid to open. Do you have a cabinet that is overflowing with plastic dishes? Maybe it is time to take back your cabinet space.

The other day I decided to tackle the plastic dish cabinet, the one with way too many plastic bowls with mismatched lids. I tossed out all the plastic leftover containers that were missing lids and donated the containers that I no longer used. My days of a messy cabinet were over and I decided to give the Zoku Neat Stack a chance with my food and leftovers.

  I took back my cabinet space with Zoku's brilliantly designed Neat Stack™ Collection of nesting food storage containers. These food containers not only look great in my kitchen but also have some unique features that I am hoping will end my food storage nightmare. I love how the food containers stack so neatly with the lids so I can easily find the right lid for the container. The containers come in four sizes and have color-coded bands on them that indicate the size. The lids latch so easily and are even watertight!

If my family uses the containers for their packed lunches, the lids have a place for a universal Neat Stack™ freezer pack that fits each of the 3, 4, and 5-cup containers so their food stays cold until lunchtime. Check out the other great features of the 11-piece Neat Stack containers.

The Neat Stack™ Collection features:

Color-Coded Bands to help you quickly find the size you need

Leak-Proof Lids that seal tightly for maximum confidence

Multi-functional Neat Stack™ Freezer Packs that either snap under or nest on top of lids

Constructed of microwave safe, freezer safe and dishwasher safe premium materials

BPA and phthalate-free

Natural Ways To Treat Menopause Symptoms With NeuEve

Discover a natural non-hormonal way to treat menopause and perimenopause symptoms.

Sponsored post: I received a sample to facilitate this post.

 When people talk about the change of life that women go through you mostly hear about hot flashes. Maybe that is the most annoying symptom that we ladies experience when are hormones start messing with our bodies. Hot flashes are just one of many bothersome symptoms of perimenopause and menopause. Trust me, there are way more symptoms that most ladies have no clue about the many different menopause symptoms until they start experiencing them. Ladies can have no clue about what can happen to their body when their hormones start changing and they start to enter that season of their life.

 One of the first symptoms that started bothering me when I turned 50 was vaginal dryness. I know this is a topic that no one really talks about. Sometimes we ladies don't even discuss this with our husband as it can be an embarrassing topic to bring up in the bedroom. So if you are a guy and are reading this, don't leave but take this opportunity to learn about a reason why your wife may be saying "not tonight dear, I have a headache." Being dry in the vagina affects so many ladies and we just learn to live with it. When we have fun in the bedroom, we may reach for those messy, sticky love oils but those don't help beyond the moment. I don't know about you but those love potions that my husband likes using to make the magic happen always make my sensitive skin burn. So I always have to run to the shower afterward to wash up down there.

A simple vaginal moisturizer may be the answer  

 I am glad that I discovered a natural product that is helping with the vaginal atrophy that I am experiencing. NeuEve is a vaginal moisturizer that is made from 100% natural ingredients. The natural ingredients in this female moisturizer for dryness and atrophy are 100% food grade. So I did not have to worry about breaking out in some weird rash down there or being sore from my sensitive skin issue.

NeuEve is gluten-free, hormone-free and estrogen-free. NeuEve does NOT contain any boric acid, petrochemicals, parabens, BHT, T.E.A, M.E.A, urea, glycols, PEG's, etc. NeuEve has never been tested on animals and does not contain any animal products.

  I tried out two different products from NeuEve and they were so simple to use. I was happy to learn that a woman gynecologist invented the cream and suppositories. Who better to make a product than someone who is a lady and has knowledge about the female organs. The products had no side effects. Ok, there were side effects but they were good side effects that made a difference in having fun with my husband. I no longer had dryness down there so I no longer had any pain.

 My husband was surprised that I wanted to have some bedroom fun. The best part was I did not need to reach for any lubricants. This natural organic moisturizer did not leave me itching afterward so I did not feel the need to clean up right away. One application can last 3-8 days depending on the formula that you buy. NeuEve also makes a cream that helps relieve vulvar dryness, itching, and burning. So if my husband does apply some type of love potion on me, this cream helps after the fun. This cream can also be used daily as a vagina moisturizer. I really liked that this cream was not greasy nor did it have any scent to it.

NeuEve suppositories and cream help ease menopausal discomforts: vaginal odor, dryness, atrophy, itching, burning, painful sex, and bacterial vaginosis.

A healthy product for sexual health

 You don't have to be going through the change of seasons to use NeuEve products as other things can make a lady dry down there. Vaginal dryness can be a symptom of many things like taking birth control, breastfeeding, and even from breast cancer. Since the ingredients are made from food ingredients it is safe to use, unless you are allergic to one of the food ingredients. NeuEve also does not contain hormones or bio-identical hormones like estrogen or progesterone so you don't have to worry.  So we ladies no longer have to suffer from dryness and pain. We can enjoy our time in the bedroom again.
