Snack Taxi Review and giveaway

I have been trying for a while now to live a little greener and make this planet a better place for all of us.  I have been replacing my household cleaners, hair care etc with Eco friendly products and am always on the prowl for more ways to be earth friendly.  

I have found a way to keep all of those unwanted sandwich and snack bags out of our landfills and help on my budget as well.  I am so happy to have found Snack Taxi reusable sandwich and snack bags.  One box of plastic sandwich bags can cost around 2.99 for maybe 30 bags which means you are using a box a month at a cost of $35.88 a year.  One reusable bag from Snack Taxi costs just 4.95 to 7.95 and can be used over and over again.  

These awesome bags come in a wide variety of patterns and styles. Snack bags, sandwich bags, lunch sacks and reusable  napkins,sporks and containers can all be found at Snack Taxi.  These products are a stylish way to help the environment and save you money.

You can use these bags for 

  • work
  • travel
  • school
  • outdoor adventures

These bags are BPA free, lead free, machine washable and made in the good ole USA.!!  They are the perfect size for a sandwich or snack and velcro closed to keep your snacks safe.  The U.S alone adds 20 million plastic bags to landfills every single DAY!  Each reusable bag you use from Snack Taxi keeps as many as 1000 plastic bags out of our waste stream.  Can you imagine hoe many bags you have contributed to landfills in your lifetime?  Yikes, it is too terrible to think of.

I received a sandwich bag and a snack bag and I absolutely love them.  The snack bag is perfect for on the go snacks with my 3 year old grandson and I am teaching him to help the environment as well.  What a great lesson to teach our children.  The exterior of the bags are made from 100% cotton and the interior is lined with a polyurethane coated nylon.

Firmagen A.M. Skin repair review and giveaway

Being over 40, my skin care is very important to me. I stay out of the sun unprotected, I use a daily skin care regimen and try to use only the best cosmetics.  Thankfully I was smart enough to realize in my 20’s that it was never to soon to start taking care of my skin.  At 42, I am often told that I do not look my age and I love hearing that, who wouldn’t , right?

I recently was introduced to Firmagen skin care products and was able to try their A.M skin repair.  First of all, I loves the texture of the product as it was not greasy or too thick.  The first time I used it, I immediately felt the difference in my skin.  I have a routine in the mornings and I start off with washing my face and applying a toner.  After I added the Skin repair to my daily repertoire my skin felt so much healthier and even younger. I have been blessed to not have wrinkles yet ( unless you count the little lines at my eyes that are only visible with a large smile) and Firmagen made my skin feel tighter and firmer.

The A.M Skin repair left my skin feeling refreshed.  This product fights the free radicals ( sun damage, household products, pollution)that we come into contact with everyday. The free radicals bombard our skin and cause a lot of damage.  It hydrates, protects and tones the skin as well as removes dead skin cells and will not clog pores and can even help reduce acne. I have been using the product every morning for two weeks now and have seen a great improvement in my skins texture and elasticity.

The product is so easy to use.  Cleanse your face and towel dry.  Gently massage the Skin repair on your entire face and neckline.  Allow it to dry and you are all set to finish your daily routine.  I apply my makeup after the product dries and have even seen an improvement in how my makeup goes on and stays on.  I normally have oilier skin and that has also seemed to improve.

Firmagen also offers other amazing products…

  • Hair repair daily antioxidant boost
  • Purified omega 3 daily antioxidant boost
  • Skin repair daily antioxidant support
  • Skin repair system
You can read all about Firmagen’s success stories on their website and you can find them on facebook .
The wonderful people at Firmagen have offered a giveaway to one lucky reader.  Entry is easy as you just follow the rafflecopter below.  Giveaway is open to U.S residents over 18 and no P.O or APO addresses please.  The winner will have 48 hours to respond to email or a new winner will be chosen. This giveaway is in no way affiliated with facebook.

I received free product for the purpose of review.  My opinions are my own and I only recommend products that I use myself or believe would benefit my readers.

Get Glow Hair products review

I am someone who is constantly on the look out for amazing hair care products for my color enhanced hair.  Usually if I find a product that makes my hair feel great and healthy, then I have to worry about it stripping my color.  Now  I have found products that do it all, Get Glow Hair products .

I have been using the clarifying shampoo for well over a week now and I absolutely love the feel, shine and bounce that my hair now has.  The scent is great, not over powering but a subtle touch.  When I am in the shower, lathering up my hair, I love that I can feel the difference in the shampoo even as I am using it. It lathers great and rinses out smoothly.

I have naturally oily hair and can never go more than a day without washing my hair.  With this shampoo’s astringent properties, it removes buildup and allows my hair to stay cleaner longer and is completely safe for my color treated hair.  I love this shampoo and with ingredients like lemongrass, witch hazel and green tea extracts, what’s not to love !!!

Get Glow offers many product choices , shampoos, conditioners and hair repair serums.  I also used the thickening spray for volume and I love that it works on any hair type.  I used to have really thick hair and as I have gotten older it has thinned some but after using the thickening spray, I have my youthful, thick hair back.  An added benefit is when I curl my hair now, it seems to last much longer and stay put and I love that it contains Aloe Vera which is famous for it’s healing properties.

Dalia Wallach is the founder of Get Glow and she has tapped into nature to bring you some amazing products.  She strives to create hair care products for every type of hair and has found the perfect balance to do just that.  All of us need a little pampering from time to time, so why not allow yourself the little luxury of great hair care.

I received free product for review.  My opinions are my own and I only recommend products I usee myself or believe would benefit my readers.

New writer Guest post: The Bloodlines Trilogy

Here is a guest post from a gothic writer, Lindsay.  Her books, “The Bloodlines Trilogy are available in PDF, Mobi and Epub versions.
You can find her books HERE

Hi everyone,
Thank you for having me here today, it’s great.
I wasn’t to sure what to talk about, until my friend was asked a question about me from her cousin. She said to me “Your books are very dark and rather gothic, are you like that, or is it just an interest?” So I thought I’d answer that.
I myself am very dark, morbid, but happy. I love all things gothic, weird, supernatural. I have always had an interest in the darker side of things. For example – For years I’ve wanted to try and get my hands on a very old witchcraft books. You know the sort you hear about that are handwritten and full of secrets. Some people say they don’t exist, but I believe differently. I wouldn’t want the white magic ones, all full of love spells and healing rituals and the like. I want the deepest, blackest, most extreme black magic book I can find, and if anyone is wondering…
Would I play with it? Oh yes!
Would I be scared? Not really, nothing scares me to be honest, so I’d have to say I would be more intrigued than frightened.
Would you run if something happened? No! What’s the point of running from the things you want to understand? If you’re gonna run, why do it in the first place?
Would you try and summon someone or something? Definitely. I would try and summon the demon I have used in my trilogy. His name is Eligos and according to King Solomon and Religion, he is a Grand Duke of Hell. There isn’t much known about him, and I would love to find out more. He fascinates me. So much so, I actually have his demonic seal tattooed on my left shoulder blade. (Yes I’m obsessed lol).
I love everything to do with the ‘Occult’ and I have heard people have had terrible and terrifying experiences when they have played around with it. Most won’t go into details as they say it frightened them so much. I know of some who have turned to religion afterwards to try and feel safe and protected.  I have crazy beliefs so I don’t think I could do that, but I understand why these people did and I respect them for it. Everyone likes to feel safe at times.
I personally would love to experience that, maybe I’m crazy, but I wouldn’t like to be any different.
Some of my friends get a little freaked out sometimes and wonder what the hell must go on inside my head. The truth is, half the time, I don’t know. I have that many things running through my mind, all at the same time, that in the end, I give up trying to explain how passionate and deeply I feel about these types of things to people.
Having these interests helps me write my novels. The Bloodlines Trilogy touches on demonology and black magic, and I had great fun learning and researching everything about it. I could never change, not even if I wanted to, therefore, this will be the genre I write for the rest of my life.
Anyway, I’m going to stop freaking people out now lol. I hope this allows people to see another side of me, and I hope what I’ve said makes sense.
Thanks again for having me.
Happy reading!
