Chomps Snack Sticks | First Impression + Giveaway

Today I am going to be doing a First Impression blog, but instead of a product that I will be testing out, this is actually going to be food related! So if you are a foodie like myself, join me as I do a taste test with Chomps Snack Sticks!
From the time I was a little kid I enjoyed beef jerky snack sticks. However many that are on the market today just aren't that good for you. They are packed with by products, fillers, preservatives and who knows what else. When I had the chance to connect with Chomps Snack Sticks I really liked how they made their product. The Chomps Snack Sticks are made with 100% grass fed beef, no MSG, nitrates, fillers, binders, and no added preservatives. They instead use celery juice to keep the beef sticks staying fresh. Amazing right? I loved that I could read the ingredients label, and see just a few simple ingredients.





Chomps Snack Sticks sent me their 3 flavors to sample. Original, Hoppin' Jalapeno, and Crankin' Cran. I just finished sampling each, so let me share my thoughts!

Original Flavor- I absolutely love these! I will say that out of all 3 flavors this was my favorite. It has a nice beef jerky snack stick flavor to it that we are all familiar with. The flavors are nice and bold, without being spicy. I love that these snack sticks aren't greasy or oily as some others can be. These are a perfect snack, and are great for on the go. 100 calories per stick which is fantastic for those who are calorie counting.

Hoppin' Jalapeno- This flavor has a nice little kick to it. I personally am not a fan of spicy foods, and this one wasn't too bad. It has a lovely jalapeno flavor, with that kick. I really enjoyed this flavor, and it is one that I would have again! This also is just 100 calories per stick!

Crankin' Cran- This one was just a little too spicy for me. It starts off with a sweet flavor, then the heat kicks in. For me I had to grab a glass of milk to put out the fire in my mouth! It definitely has some heat and some kick! However if you are someone who loves spicy foods, this would be one I would really recommend trying. It really just comes down to your own preferences. This one comes in at 110 calories which is still fantastic!

I really enjoyed these snack sticks! I have 1 stick left in each flavor that I will be giving as samples to family members over the Christmas holiday coming up, and I'm eager to hear their thoughts! For me, I really give Chomps Snack Sticks a big 2 thumbs up. I love how basic they keep their food, its something I appreciate. I would like to see more flavors from this company because they obviously are on the right track with these snack sticks! Perhaps a teriyaki flavor?

For those on special diets, these have no added sugars, are gluten free and are paleo friendly! If you want to try out these snacks for yourself, you can visit their online website, Chomps Snack Sticks.

Treatment improves scalp and hair health by encouraging hair follicles to remain in their growth phase, but it is not meant to be a comprehensive cure or an alternative therapy to treat levels of androgens or testosterone and dihydrotestosterone.

HOW MUCH TO APPLY: Comb residual styling products out of your hair. Dampen your hair well with lukewarm water. Use a quarter-size amount of shampoo [for short to medium long hair] and distribute the product over the scalp with circulating movements and through your hair. Foam up the dollop of shampoo with a little water before massaging the foaming shampoo through your hair and scalp. Be sure not to scratch your scalp with your fingernails. Leave on for 1-2 minutes. Rinse thoroughly and repeat again. Completely rinse the shampoo out of your hair using clear water. Follow up with conditioner and style your hair as usual. For best results apply 2-3 times a week. PLEASE NOTE: We use only high quality and high potency ingredients sourced from the most reliable resources. Some of the ingredients like Essential Oils and Botanical Extracts are added to provide sensation of icy-hot warmth to intensify the effect of the treatment. These ingredients, when used as directed, will produce "tingling" sensation, which is expected. This sensation will increase with the increased amount of product. That's why it is important to follow directions thoroughly to prevent skin irritation. One 10.2 oz bottle of shampoo should last for about 15-20 weeks [for short to medium long hair].





MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW:

Thinning hair and hair loss run in my family, so it is something I have wanted to start taking steps in preventing. I have baby fine hair that tends to be very dry. I use this shampoo twice a week, for 8-10 minutes while I am in the shower. First I love the scent of the Lemongrass and Rosemary. It makes my whole bathroom smell like a spa. It has that natural herbal scent that is just so invigorating! The shampoo is a slightly yellow color, and it gives a very slight lather. I have medium to long length hair, so I use about a heaping teaspoon full of the shampoo to cover my entire scalp. I pretty much just focus this right on my roots and scalp area. It gives a immediate tingling sensation which at first took some getting used to. Now I absolutely love it! It feels so lovely! Doesn't hurt and isn't uncomfortable at all. 

I have been using this for almost a month now, and there are so many things that I notice. First, my hair isn't falling out at the rate that it was. Before I was shedding hair quite a bit, and now it's slowed down to a minimum. My hair is growing a lot faster and stronger. And although most of my hair is dry, my scalp would always get greasy fast if I didn't wash my hair quite frequently. After using this shampoo, I can wash my hair every other day, or every 2 days and not feel grimy and gross! I still have a long way to go with this product, but so far I am really a fan of this! It is definitely worth a shot!

The Ridiculous 6 - Netflix Original Film Review

Today the newest Netflix Original film was released, The Ridiculous 6. Like many other Netflix subscribers, I was pretty excited to see what this movie would be like since it features so many popular actors and actresses. Plus it is a Happy Madison Production, which if you are familiar with Adam Sandler, then you will know this is his production company. I knew from the previews that this movie was going to be a campy comedy, so I eagerly tuned in tonight to give the movie a first watch.

22 minutes into the movie I already disliked it. I had to force myself to continue on watching it. The base of the story is fantastic, however the way they went around filming it, and the dialogue, it's just horrible. Adam Sandler, a actor which I really enjoy just is very lackluster in this film. His acting seems forced, and not natural. And as I said, the dialogue is just so off for this type of movie, it's ridiculous. There isn't much for comedy, aside from the fact that I am laughing at how stupid the movie is.

I'm going to keep this review short, sweet and to the point. I give this one a big 2 thumbs down. Not worth the time of day.

First Impression: RawSpiceBar Monthly Spice Box

Monthly subscription services seem to have taken over the Internet in the past few years. I absolutely love them and what they offer. I like being able to try something out before I jump in and make a purchase. I was so thrilled to hear that there was a subscription service like that for spices, RawSpiceBar.


Over the past few years I have developed quite a spice collection in my kitchen. I personally believe that spices are what can introduce you to a new culture. RawSpiceBar takes you all over the world, and introduces you to new cultures and flavors with their monthly spice box.  For $6 a month you get 3 fresh packets of spices that take you all over the world. They were kind enough to send me the November 2015 kit which took us to Ethiopia. The kit comes with the spices of course, as well as a brochure which gives you a bit of information on the area and the spices, plus there were 3 recipes for me to try out using the spices I was sent.



I love how the spices are presented. They come in small packets which feature the spice name, a little information about the spice, and the ingredients. They really inform you about the spices which is fantastic when dealing with a spice you have never worked with before. They give you a decent amount of the spices as well, enough to do a few recipes with them. A nice sampling. This will let you try it out and see if it is something you like or not. This months box did have some heat to it, which is something that I am gradually adding into my foods. This is a great way for me to open my palette to new things!





I absolutely adore this company, and I love what they offer. This would be a perfect monthly subscription box for anyone who loves to cook, bake, or loves to experience new cultures. Without a doubt this gets a 5 star rating from me! If you are interested in learning more about RawSpiceBar, visit their website here!

What is your favorite spice? Tell me in the comments below, or on Facebook!

MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW:

I use headphones with my laptop on a daily basis, and mostly I have been using cheap ones that I buy at mass retailers. They last a few months, then the quality goes. I have always been a fan of the bigger headphones. I like how they concentrate the sound. Plus they are usually a lot more comfortable to wear.

When I opened up the box for these, I was pleasantly surprised to see that they come in a carrying case. I love the idea of having some place to store my headphones safely. It makes traveling with them so much better! I don't have to worry about the cord or headset getting messed up and tossed around. The headphones do fold to fit into the case which I again appreciate. The overall appearance of the headphones is very nice. Sleek looking, and very well constructed. 

These fit comfortably. At first it took be a little bit to get used to them. They are a little bit heavier than my old headphones so that was my only adjustment. The sound quality of these is very nice. Clear, clean and crisp. Like some others have mentioned, I too was expecting a little bit more bass with these. Overall though, they are a pretty decent pair of headphones!

Modfamily (2-pack) Mini Plastic Bag Heat Sealer | Review


GET THE DETAILS:

Simple and Modern: Squeeze, Slide and Re-Seal Original Bags to keep Food Fresh and reduce the need for ziplock bags


100% Guarantee - If you have any problem EVER with ReliaSeal, we will refund your order in full plus ship you a new item. NO RISK, so add to cart now!

Designed with ease of use in mind - Place edge of poly or mylar bag in your sealer and slowly pull the bag through. Squeeze air out of bag before completing the seal to create vacuum effect.

Compact - Accessible, handy use in your kitchen, cabinet, outdoors or anywhere you need it.

Airtight seal - Create airtight seal and prevent your food from tasting bland and stale. Lock in freshness and flavor. Safely seal all types of bags. Works best with mylar (i.e. potato chips) bags.



MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW:

These heat sealers are honestly such a fantastic product to have in the kitchen! I like to have chips, and snacks, however I hate that I can never seal them up well. I either use bag holders, ties, clothespins, or what have you. Air can still get into the bags and make my food go bad a lot faster, which is a waste of money.

These are so handy! Just pop in a battery, move the shield, and you are ready to go. I found the best way to use this is to start off slow, and find the speed that works well with the type of plastic you are sealing. Some plastics seal a lot faster and don't require the slow speed. Others take a bit longer, so it's really trial by error. Once I got the hang of these, I was able to seal a bag up in seconds and have a full seal with one swipe. At the beginning, it would take me a few go overs to get the bag fully sealed!


These do have a magnetic back, but I found that they are way to heavy to put on the fridge. They just slide down to the floor. So I keep mine on top of the fridge for safe keeping. I also wouldn't recommend children using this since it is melting plastic.

Toosum Healthy Foods Snack Bars | Review




GET THE DETAILS:

We know you’re careful about what you eat at meal times—lots of veggies, healthy protein, complex carbs. But snack time can be tricky because many “healthy” snack bars out there are loaded with sugar and calories or packed with preservatives and other ingredients concocted in a lab, not a kitchen.

So we set out to create a gluten-free, satisfying snack that tastes great and gives you all the healthy benefits you expect from the good foods you put in your body.

Say hello to Toosum!

Each of our delicious 100-calorie snack bars is made with nutrient-dense (and certified gluten-free!) rolled oats, chia seeds, and other delicious ingredients straight from nature, all with benefits that go way beyond their good taste.

Our seriously amazing benefits, crafted just for you:
•Low in sugar and no refined sugars

•Chia seeds—full of omega-3 fatty acids to help reduce risk of heart disease
•Cashew butter – monounsaturated fat to help improve cardiovascular health
•Chicory root—another protein-packed, fiber-rich ingredient to help your digestive system
•Sunflower seeds—packed with vitamin E and antioxidants
•Coconut—loaded with fiber to improve digestion and stabilize glucose levels
•Banana—high in potassium to help lower blood pressure and tryptophan to help boost your mood
•Acai berries—high in powerful antioxidants to help boost the immune system and slow the body’s aging process.

MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW:

I absolutely love these snack bars! Out of all the flavors, my favorite is the coconut and banana. These bars are great for snacks at home, at work, or just on the go. They have nice flavors, and I love the flavor combos that they have. These sort of remind me of cereal bars in a way. They are light, so you can eat one and not have that heavy feel that you can sometimes get from granola bars and other health bars.

I am on a weight loss journey, so these are fantastic alternatives to have when I am hungry, and want to reach for something good!

Overall I am a fan of these, they taste great, and make a perfect snack!

Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+ | Review



GET THE DETAILS:

Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+ gives natural lashes the ultimate beauty boost – boasting an average increase in lash volume of up to 400 percent.* With the power of an unparalleled formula and elongating Fibers, Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+ works to boldly enhance lashes in just a few easy steps! 

Making waves as a cosmetic wonder that enhances and nourishes lashes, Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+ contains the brand’s proprietary Uplift Eye Serum – a formula infused with antioxidant Co-Q10, squalene and vitamins C and E to condition lashes. While Younique’s Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+ is formulated to last all day, it is easy to remove and leaves your natural lashes hydrated and looking healthy. 

How to Apply…
- First, apply an even coat of the Transplanting Gel to the lashes
- Immediately apply a layer of Fibers over the Transplanting Gel
- Seal the deal by applying the Transplanting Gel over the Fibers and get ready to bat your lovely, long lashes!


MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW:

I have heard of the company Younique, yet I never had the chance to try them out, that is until now. Over the past few weeks I have been putting the Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+ to the test.

The one makeup product that I refuse to leave the house without is mascara. Being a natural blonde means my eye lashes aren't as dark as others. I feel naked without my mascara! I have tried so many different types of mascaras over the years, and I find some that are alright, but none that I would run out and purchase again. I am however happy to say that I am very pleased with my experience with the Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+.

Using this kit is so simple. First I began by applying the Transplanting Gel to my lashes. This basically looks like your normal mascara. Immediately after applying that, I then took the 3D Fibers, and applied those to my lashes. The first time you use a fiber mascara, it may take you a few tries to perfect your look, but it is very simple. The fibers attach to the gel, and give your lashes a more natural look vs. false lashes. After letting it dry for a minute or so, I apply a final coat of the transplanting gel. So easy!

I wore this mascara on one eye, (my right eye, in photos see left eye) and I also wore my current favorite drug store mascara on my left eye (right eye in photos). It was a massive difference! My lashes looked longer, fuller and thicker. I wore these all day, and they both wore about the same amount of time, 6 hours. I didn't experience any fall out or flaking at all. At the end of the day, everything washed off easily with a makeup removing wipe.

I love the instant volume and length this mascara gives. I am the type of person who hates false lashes, and I have a hard time applying them. So this is a fantastic alternative!

I give this a full 5 star recommendation! It's false lashes without all the mess and hassle!

"We searched the world to find the "Best" Formulation that fitted our requirements to give our customers "The Best". We found this outstanding product and we offer it to you with 100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE. Made in the USA.


Have you ever used a product to clean the spots off your carpet only to have a bigger dark stain emerge over the next week or two.

This is called rapid re-soiling. It happens because many products leave a sticky residue that attracts dirt to your carpet when they dry.

The VeryDirtyCarpets Carpet and Upholstery Spot and Stain Remover is designed with advanced cleaning technology to prevent the chance of this occurring. When it dries, this carpet spotter traps (encapsulates) the soiling in a polymer based non stick microscopic powder that will vacuum easily out of the carpet or upholstery.

It is not designed for color based stains like cordials and food dyes or set urine stains.

Please note that this product is a great general cleaning product, although people have had success with some color stains we don't claim that it will remove color stains.  It has no bleaching products in its formula.



MY THOUGHTS & REVIEW:

I have used all sorts of carpet stain removers in my day. So many claim to do all these wondrous things, yet very few hold up to that reputation. I have to say that I was honestly shocked at how well this product performed!

I have a home with 20 year old carpets, and pets. So between foot traffic, and all the messes that pets can make, my carpets have been through it all. I had a few stains on my carpets that were old, and I had 2 that were fresh. I followed the directions on the bottle, and sprayed this on them. After drying and vacuuming, I was shocked at how well this had worked. On the fresh stains, it was as if they had never existed. With the old stains, it brought my carpet back to its original color! I now go around the house looking for old stains other products couldn't touch, and use this on them! I have also recommended it to my friends and family who have pets because this stuff is a life saver!


I absolutely have no negatives about this, I truly love this!

MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW:

I will admit, at first I was a bit skeptical at how well this would work at improving my mood. Around the fall and winter times, my mood tends to change, as many people experience this as well. Lack of sunlight, vitamins, stress, you name it, it happens to us all. I have been using this for about a month now, and I have noticed quite a difference. My overall well being just feels improved. My moods are more positive, happy and mellow. I also noticed a improvement in my sleep pattern as well. Better nights sleep without waking up, tossing and turning. I suffer from anxiety, and these have also been starting to help with that as well. These basically set me up to have a great day.

The pills are slightly smaller than your average size capsules. Very easy to swallow. I haven't experienced any after tastes, or burps from these. Also no negative side effects. I can be sensitive to new things, and these didn't bother me a bit.

First Impression: Exuviance Bionic Oxygen Facial




Today I wanted to give you a first impression of a product that I have recently got in the mail. It is the Exuviance Bionic Oxygen Facial.

As most of my long time readers will know, I am skincare obsessed. I believe that if I take care of my skin now, in my younger days, I will reap the benefits later in life. It is only natural that I would get so excited about trying out a new product to use on my face!

I have used Exuviance products in the past, and I adored them, so I had high hopes for this product as well. And without fail, this pulled through for me. Upon arrival, I made a mad dash to my bathroom to start trying this out. I just got home from work, so it was the perfect time to give myself a facial and have a bit of down time. I used a makeup wipe to take off all of my makeup, then used my cleansing brush with my cleanser to fully deep clean my face. I then dampened my face, and applied the mask to my face. First, it smells very nice. It is easy to apply, I just massaged it into my skin using my fingertips, in circular motion. Within a minute I could feel a sensation on my skin. At the same time the cream became white, opaque and foamy looking. After 2 minutes the sensations were really picking up speed. I could feel what was like hundreds of tiny bubbles popping on my skin. It almost tickled a little bit! However it did feel nice and relaxing. After 5 minutes of letting it sit on my skin, the product seemed to disappear into my skin and I was left with a fairly clean face. Only a few little spots on my skin still had the foam. I then rinsed my face and applied my moisturizer. My face was radiant and just looked fabulous! Facial was a success!



My skin felt amazing after, and I felt so relaxed! I really enjoyed this! My first impression on the Exuviance Bionic Oxygen Facial mask is fantastic. I look forward to using it often for my weekly facial routines!

            ;">
            MY THOUGHTS & REVIEW:

            I have been taking Biotin for years. It is one of my tried and true supplements. I color my hair regularly, so my hair get's damaged quite a bit. To help combat this damage, and help my hair grow a lot faster, I will take Biotin daily. Within a week of use, I notice a huge difference in my hair. For the past month I have been using the Life Glow Biotin, and my hair has been growing at a much faster rate. It also is a lot shinier, and overall healthier looking. Now, this doesn't only effect my hair, but also my nails. Again, within the first week of use my nails will start growing at a much faster rate. So it's a double whammy!

            There is only 1 con to Biotin, and that is it makes your hair grow... all of your hair. I notice that my other body hair will grow much faster as well, (under arms, legs, etc). So I do have to do my hair removal in those places a bit more frequently than normal. But other than that, no side effects, weird tastes, or anything. The pills are easy to swallow, they are a average size capsule. I highly recommend this, it's a fantastic supplement for your hair and nails!

            Zahler Whey Protein Meal Replacement Powder | Review





            GET THE DETAILS:

            Reach, Zahlers active nutrition line, Restores Energy And Cuts Hunger. With Reach you'll eat better, exercise harder, do more, be more, you'll REACH for your goals, then you'll REACH further. Then you'll REACH for another REACH. The word protein is derived from the Greek word Proteios, meaning Primary, alluding to its great importance to our diet. Protein is essential to practically every part of the body, from hair and skin to muscle and tissue. Whey protein is popular among individuals who have specific fitness goals, like athletes and bodybuilders. Among its benefits, whey protein has a fast absorption rate, which means that not only does it help build muscle, but it also helps repair muscle immediately after a workout. Whey is a complete protein, providing all the nine essential amino acids necessary for our bodies.


            MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW:

            I love whey protein shakes, they have been a must have in my weight loss journey. I like to use them as a meal replacement, or even as a addition into my meal. I have used many, and I have a fairly good eye of what makes a great whey protein powder / shake.

            First I will start with the biggest problem I have with this. This is one of, if not the hardest powder to mix into a shake. Because I drink protein shakes regularly, I have the special shaker cups that you use to mix your shakes with. I also have a blender that I use as a last resort if my powder doesn't mix fully in my shaker. I have used both with this powder, and both results were not quite up to my liking. When I use my shaker cup, the powder doesn't completely dissolve, or it becomes almost glue like, and it will stick to the piece inside the shaker, and not fully mix in. It comes out very clumpy. With the blender, I have similar issues, except that after fully blending it to where it's all mixed in, my drink is 95% frothy. Drinking it is kinda strange. I have never had this issue with any protein powder ever.

            After getting discouraged, I decided to strain the liquid using a strainer just to get out the clumps, and that works! This tastes fantastic, it has a nice, not too sweet chocolate flavor. It keeps me full for a few hours, and I really like it. I just wish that it was easier to make, if it was, this would no doubt be a 5 star product!
