BzzAgent Kashi Hummus Crisps Campaign

Recently, I received an invite on BzzAgent to try Kashi Hummus Crisps for free. We eat a lot of hummus so I was excited to try out this product. When my bzzkit arrived I couldn't wait to try them. I was sent a bag of the sea salt and olive oil flavor as well as coupons to share with friends and family. They also have caramelized onion and sundried tomato, basil, and feta flavors. I was able to sample both of these flavors too-I got a bag of the sundried tomato, basil, and feta in my October Goodies Company box and we picked up a bag of the caramelized onion at the Christmas Tree shops.

These chips are great because they contain no partially hydrogenated oils or high fructose corn syrup. They also contain 6g of whole grains, 4g fiber, and 4g of protein. These crisps have a nice crisp and texture to them. The amount of flavoring on them is just right and not to over powering. I found the texture to be a bit different than other crisps but pleasant. I also found them to be highly addictive and all 3 flavors were enjoyable. They don't really taste like hummus but they have similar ingredients except for the tahini. Overall I really enjoyed these and can see myself picking up another bag soon.

Lifeway Frozen Strawberry Kefir-Influenster Campaign

*I was given the opportunity to try out the following product to test for free from Influenster and the company mentioned below. The following opinions are my own honest ones and I was not compensated for them in any way.

This summer I was given the opportunity to try Kefir for the first time. A website called Influenster sent me a free coupon to try any Lifeway Kefir product. I was excited to try this product. So, I took my coupon to Wegmans and decided to try the Frozen Strawberry Kefir. If you are not familiar with kefir it is fermented milk product that has more probiotics than yogurt.

Here's an explanation from Lifeway's website-"A fermented milk product, Lifeway Kefir is similar to drinkable yogurt but far more probiotic. While yogurt contains only two to three strains of “live and active” cultures, Lifeway is packed with a unique blend of 12 probiotic cultures."

They also sell some Greek versions of their products. I enjoyed being given the opportunity to be able to try a new product that I hadn't heard of before. The Frozen Strawberry Kefir I tried was a bit tart and slightly tangy. It was also a very refreshing and creamy Summer time treat. A half a cup serving is only 90 calories and it is 99% lactose free. Which is great since I have a slight dairy sensitivity. The probiotics rev-up your immunity and aid your digestion.

Long time no blog/Nail Kit

Hello everyone! I am so sorry that it has been so long since I have blogged and I am going to change that right now. I suppose it is harder than it may seem sometimes to keep with a blog and to keep posting new and interesting content. After a long hiatus though I am willing to give this another go.

I wanted to start off my showing you a neat idea my mom and I found while browsing Pinterest around the holidays last December. We decided to make a nail kit to give a cousin for Christmas. The first jar we bought was to small since we got carried away with all of the items we purchase to include in her gift. It turned out really cute and she loved it!

We added some rub ons to decorate the outside and made a rosette for the top.
