Get A Good Night Sleep

Hello everyone and welcome,

There is nothing and I mean nothing like getting a Good Night of Sleep. It does wonders for the body. Being someone who struggles with bouts of insomnia for the past 20 years and trying all sorts of things. I can definitely appreciate what it means to get a good night’s sleep. You know the kind of sleep where you sleep so deep that you are completely unaware of the thunderstorm that took place the night before until your friends ask you about it the next day.

Well, today I’m here to share with you how I accidentally found something to help me get a good nights rest. I was looking for a home air purifier and the one I was interested in was out of stock in store and online…….so I did the next best thing Google to find another. In my quest, I discovered that Himalayan Pink Salt Lamps naturally purify the air. Here’s how the lamp works.

“Water vapors are always circulating in the air of any room of your house. Thes water vapor’s carry with it allergens like dust, pollen, pet dander, smoke particles, and even bacteria and viruses.

Salt is hygroscopic, meaning it attracts water molecules from the surrounding air. A large block of rock salt, like a Himalayan salt lamp, is especially attractive to water vapor and its pollutants.

Once attracted to the salt lamp, these microscopic compounds remain on the salt and not floating in the air where you can breathe them in.

As Himalayan salt lamps slowly become saturated with water vapor they attract from the air around them, the heat, from the lamp inside or beneath, dries them, thus continuing the hygroscopic effect for as long as the light is on.

This heat also re-releases water vapor back into the air. Importantly, any airborne contaminants attracted to the salt lamp remain trapped there and will not become airborne again.” negativeionizers.net

So I bought the lamp for its air purification abilities. Little did I know it would also help me sleep oh so deeply and be capable of so much more….

Neutralizing electromagnetic radiation

Reduce asthma and allergy symptoms

Improve breathing

Increase energy levels

Reduce stress and increase performance

Improve Mood & Concentration

Have you tried a Himalayan Pink Salt Lamp if so what’s been your experience? If not would you be willing to give it a try?

The World’s Best Vegan Eggs (Review)

Hello everyone,

Welcome to…….

wpid-textgram_1446521642.png(*This post contains affiliate links, which means I may receive compensation if you make a purchase using the links.)

For the past few months, I/we have been transitioning to a plant-based diet. It’s something I’ve been considering and talking about for quite some time. Now I’m taking the steps and making it happen.  I must admit with a bit of creativity in my cooking this has been easier than I thought it would be and quite delicious.  I can honestly say that we all don’t feel like we are missing out on the things we used to eat. They key is creatively finding way’s to make and substitute all the thing’s we use to love.

When it came to eggs initially it was a bit challenging. My youngest loves scrambled eggs. So I set out on a mission to try and recreate a vegan version. I first tried it with scrambling chickpeas which taste good but it did have the egg consistency.  Then just when I was going to give up on a great tasting vegan egg option…….I discover Follow Your Hearts Vegan Eggs. I picked them up at my local organic market and came home and made them right away.

My youngest daughter and I were so impressed. The surprise of it all was that my oldest daughter who “hates eggs” loves these vegan eggs. Like this kid hates scrambled eggs, omelets, boiled eggs……she only likes eggs if they are used in baking. But she loves these eggs!!!

So if you’re considering a more plant-based lifestyle or are already following a more plant-based diet I highly recommend you giving these a try. They taste a lot like traditional eggs and the consistency is very reminiscent as well. My one recommendation is that you cook the eggs a bit longer than the package instructions depending on how you like your eggs. I cook my vegan scrambled eggs for about 10- 12 minutes. A carton makes about a dozen eggs and you can use them for baking, scrambling, and omelets.

 

They are……

Most of all they are delicious!!

Ben & Jerry’s Non-Dairy Ice Cream Review

Hello everyone,

Welcome to…….

wpid-textgram_1446521642.png

When I heard that Ben & Jerry’s was coming out with a line of Non-Dairy Ice Creams I was eager to give them a try. I had to go to a couple of store’s to get all the flavors. I made it into a taste testing event for the family. So today I want to share our thoughts on this sweet treat.

The ice creams are available in 4 flavors and are made with Almond Milk.

  • Chocolate Fudge Brownie
  • Chunky Monkey
  • Coffee Caramel Fudge
  • P.B. & Cookies

Now it’s time to get into the important stuff…….taste. I’m going to talk about them in order from favorite to least favorite.

P.B. & Cookies – was our top favorite if you like cookies, and peanut butter in your ice cream then you are going to absolutely love it.

Coffee Caramel Fudge – this was the next favorite……it’s coffee flavor with caramel and fudge. It’s a Starbuck’s latte in ice cream form so what’s not to love.

Chocolate Brownie Fudge – decadent deliciousness would be the best way to describe this one.

Chunky Monkey – this one was my least favorite lacking the banana flavor of the traditional Chunky Monkey but otherwise pretty good.

All in all these Non- Dairy treats are great. They really taste a lot like traditional ice cream. Ben & Jerry’s did not disappoint in making sure that you get a nice bite of all the magnificent ingredients in each spoon full.

If you want to find these in your area just long onto the Ben & Jerry’s website enter your zip code and find out which stores in your area carry them

Have, any of you tried these if so what were your thoughts? If not do you think you will give them a try?

It Feels So Good To Finally Get Relief (Navage Review)

Hello everyone,

When something great comes into your life….you want to shout it from the roof- tops and tell everyone.

image

Since I was a teenager I’ve been dealing with sinus issue’s. I was put on all sorts of medications only for them to cause other issues. So I quickly left behind the prescriptions.

My mom suggested the Neti pot….which by her demonstration looked scary and uncomfortable. But what was I to do….keep suffering or give this thing a try. So I gave it a try….it burned like crazy….it was messy…I wondered was she secretly punishing me or something…lol.

Little did I know this Neti pot would render me some relief and become a part of my daily regimen for year’s and year’s and I would adjust to the discomforts.

Until I recently decided to venture out and give something new a try. For this post, I am collaborating with NAVÄGE to try out their nasal cleaning system.

(*This post contains affiliate links, which means I may receive compensation if you make a purchase using the links.)

Can sit conveniently on your countertop and has the option of a drying rack, that can also hold your salt pods.

I love that this nose cleaning system takes the stress and discomfort out of the process. It simply makes my life easier. It does the work for you. It works like it says it will! This is better than anything I’ve tried before. You simply fill it with water insert your salt pod which contains the perfect pre-measured combination of saline concentrate, sea salt and purified water. Insert the nose pillows into your nose, press a button and let the machine do the work for you. I’m also excited that they will have salt pods with essential oils like eucalyptus coming soon!

NAVÄGE has now become a part of my daily routine and has completely replaced my, former method.

Finally, after year’s and year’s of trying various other thing’s, I have found something that truly gives me the relief I need and have been looking for, for so long.

If you are like me and suffer from sinus issues or simply want better breathing. I highly recommend giving this nose cleaning system a try!

image

Can be conveniently taken on the go with the option of a travel case that is available in 2 color’s.

A big thank you to NAVÄGE for collaborating with me on this post. To find out, more information click here and see all that this system has to offer to help naturally care for your nasal needs. As well as all of the great accessories that you can get to accompany your nose cleaning system.

Organic Vegetarian Pot Stickers

Hello everyone,

Welcome to Tasty Tuesday!!

image

Usually, I share a recipe but today I wanted to share a new find. A few weeks ago the kids and I were in Costco and we found a new item. Frozen Organic Pot Stickers.

When it comes to pre-packaged meals…….. it’s not something I really buy. Usually because of the ingredients and if it has good quality ingredients the sodium is usually really high. So for me, these types of meals get left in the store.

Then I’ll make a promise to the kids to try and re-create it at home with healthier ingredients. Which doesn’t always happen right away.

Thankfully……I found something that I could actually put in the cart, take home and have prepared in minutes.

Now all I can do is hope…….that it taste good and that we all like. Is that asking for too much?

Well, I am here to tell you…..that I now believe in miracles…lol….because we all loved them.

Have any of you tried these or have any other recommendations, please let me know?

2015 Fall Eyewear Collection

Hello Everyone,

Today I am collaborating with Warby Parker an American eyewear company that designs eyewear with a vintage-inspired feel.

image

Let me dive right in and share a bit about the company.  What it impress me the most is that for each pair of glasses sold a pair is given to a person in need. It’s a program called “Buy a pair, Give a pair. To date, they have donated over 1,000,000 pairs of glasses. I love companies that use their resources to help those who need it.

They have a fantastic in-home try-on service. Here’s how it works….you visit WarbyParker.com select the frames you would like to try on up to 5 pairs for 5 days. The shipping is free and once you are done trying out the glasses simply return them with the box they arrived in, using the provided return shipping label that is provided. Next go online and order the glasses you love.  That’s terrific in my opinion. My only issue is I wish they would extend the try-on time for a few more day’s.

image

The great thing is you get “superior quality glasses” and your purchase benefits someone in need.  I don’t know how you feel about that, but I think it’s fantastic.imageThank you so much for taking the time to stop by, I greatly appreciate it.imageOh, don’t forget to follow me on social media……I follow back!

Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques Colour Fusion Lip Glaze

Hello everyone,

Happy Thursday!!!

image

When it comes to makeup I love it. Over the past few years, I have not worn it like I use to.  Once I started focusing on putting natural and healthy things in and on my body.  I stopped wearing makeup like I used to.  I started trying out makeup at Whole Food’s or if you live in Washington D.C./ Maryland/ Northern Virginia aka DMV like I do a store called MOM’s (My Organic Market).  I would try out various things but ultimately be unsatisfied. Even though I want healthy ingredients in my makeup I also want it to look good as well.  That is one benefit to some of my old favorites. Great long lasting color/pigments and wearability.

Recently, I had the opportunity to collaborate with Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques.  When I saw the list of ingredients in her makeup…..I had to try it out. I tried out the Dragon Fruit Colour Fusion Lip Glaze.

Ingredients

Certified Organic Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Certified Organic Cera Alba (Beeswax), Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Wax, Non-GMO Stevia Rebaudiana (Stevia) Extract, Certified Organic Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract (Green Tea) Extract, Non-GMO Natural  Vitamin E Oil, Certified Organic Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Certified Organic Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Extract (+/- Mica, Certified Organic Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil (Sweet Orange) Essential Oil, Certified Organic Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Extract, Certified Organic Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil, Certified Organic Mentha Viridis (Spearmint) Leaf Oil Certified Organic Vanilla Planifolia Fruit (Vanilla) Extract).

Now I will admit I was a bit skeptical based off of past experiences with other products.  But let me tell you……I was so impressed.
image

This gloss has great pigmentation and great wearability.  I was in total shock.  It goes on smooth, it’s not sticky, it doesn’t have any type of weird scent.  I ate and still had color left.  I just did a minor touch up after eating.  As I write this post….I’m still in shock by how great this lip product is. Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques offers and array of  beauty products and tools.  Which you can check out here.

A big thank you to Lauren for this collab!!

I have a question for you……..

If you are rushing and only have time to apply 1 makeup product what would it be????

For me, it would have to be lipstick or lip gloss.  I will just hide my dark circles with sunglasses…lol.

OZ Naturals Ancient Orient Rice Enzyme Dermafoliant Review

Hello everyone,

image

Today I want to share a New product with you.  OZ Naturals Ancient Orient Enzyme Dermafoliant.

Before we get into how it feels and works…….let’s talks about the ingredients.

  • Bambusa Arundinacea Stem Extract aka Bamboo Stem Powder – Derived from the stems of Bamboo, this purifying powder helps sweep away dead skin cells and clarify pores for a brighter and clearer complexion.
  • Sucrose – Which comes from the crystallization of sugar cane or beet juice. This ingredient is used as a humectant which helps the skin to retain moisture.
  • Lactic Acid – Is derived from milk, fruit, vegetables, and plants.  It is known to plump and tighten skin, reduce acne, wrinkles, and aging spots.
  • Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract aka Green Tea –  Which is a great anti-inflammatory and high in anti-oxidants.
  • Panthenol – Is derived from Vitamin B5.  This is known to make the skin soft and smooth.
  • Thioctic Acid – Is derived naturally from milk.  Used for anti-aging.

The product is 100% Vegan and Cruelty-Free!!!

90% Organic / 100% Natural

It has a sand-like consistency.  You apply a nickel size amount in the palm of your hand, adding a little water to make a paste.  Next apply it to your face rubbing in a circular motion. Let it stay on for 5 minutes.

What you will notice is that it starts to tighten a bit.  Once the five minutes has passed rinse your skin thoroughly and pat dry.

I used this product on myself and well as my daughter who has acne.  We both fell in love with it.  It was easy to apply and rinses off just as easily.  Our skin……..felt absolutely amazing, so soft and smooth.   We both have oily/ sensitive skin….so I was looking to see if this exfoliant would be too harsh on our sensitive skin. This worked great on our sensitive skin. Not harsh at all. I am happy to have the opportunity to try this product for free in exchange for this honest review.

I truly love this exfoliant.  It has great ingredients, perfect for all skin types including sensitive skin and works like it says it will.  For me, that is a win/win. For more information on this product and other products, you can visit Oz Naturals!

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by, it’s truly appreciated.

Until Next Time,
Sewloveable ☺
