Veri Soda – Moms Meet

veri 2

Soda has never tasted so good! With only 60 calories, caffeine free and no artificial ingredients, how could I go wrong?   Veri Soda uses organic, non-GMO ingredients in their soda. The line is also USDA NOP-certified organic.  Your probably wondering how it is sweetened.  Well, Veri uses organic fruit juice, organic can sugar and organic stevia.  You know what I love most, besides the taste. I can easily read every ingredient in Veri Soda.

I tasted Veri Ginger Ale, Veri Cola, and Veri Orange Soda. Each had the typical pop of a can and fizz. The Ginger Ale had a beautiful golden color and tasted much better than a few other brands I’ve had in the past. The Cola was the typical brownish color and smelled wonderful! The taste was light and refreshing. Veri Orange was of course orange in color when I inhaled the wonderful orange smell; it took me to the tropics and hot weather.

I truly enjoyed each and every flavor of Veri Soda. Fill a tall glass with lots of ice and enjoy this remarkable organic soda!

Veri Soda is available in Veri Ginger Ale, Veri Orange, Veri Cola, and Veri Lemon Lime. It is available at select stores nationwide. Learn more about Veri Soda or get exclusive access to special offers by click one of the links below.

Bella Organics

FFR image for posts

Keeping my family healthy is very important to me in many aspects.  My husband and children have very sensitive skin so I have to be careful what I buy.  Whenever possible I try to find natural and organic products for them.  I find that organic products are worth the investment for the better of my family.

Bella Organics is a great company that has created an entire line of skincare products that are naturally organic. They contain no synthetic chemicals or toxic ingredients.  They use only the best plant-based essential oils and extracts and their packaging is 100% recyclable.  Bella Organics offers an array of products from lip balm, to body scrub, to deodorant, to baby items.  I had the pleasure of trying Bella Organics Raspberry Lip Balm and Iced Lemonade Deoderant Crème.

IMG_3960

First of all, I love that I can read all of the ingredients in the Raspberry Lip Balm; shea butter, almond oil, beeswax, coconut oil, raspberry extract, and stevia.  It goes on smooth and made my lips feel silky.  I was surprised that the lip balm lasted a couple of hours before needing to reapply.  Their lip balms are available in a variety of flavors including mint, pina colada, and vanilla tangerine.

IMG_3961

I wasn’t sure what to expect with the Iced Lemonade deodorant crème. Upon opening, I was immediately in love with the aroma. It instantly reminded of summer.  I have never tried organic deodorant and never realized how toxic anti-perspirants are to the body.  Bella Organics deodorant crèmes work simply by fighting bacteria and providing a pleasant scent to the underarms.

IMG_3962

Overall, I would highly recommend Bella Organics. With so many organic skincare products to choose from, they have a product for everyone in the family.

BiteSizers

FFR image for posts

Meal time is always crazy at my house. With a growing 5 year old boy and an almost 2 year old girl (going on 15), preparing meals is always hectic.  I try my best to have them eat what we eat, but sometimes it’s hard. Trying to cut food up into small enough pieces for their liking while they are yelling “I’m hungry, “Is it ready yet”, etc. can make any mom struggle to have a smooth meal time.  Anything that makes this part easier, I’m signing up for!

IMG_3667

Thank goodness for BiteSizers! Upon first opening they look like everyday scissors. I thought to myself, they’ll probably work the same as kitchen scissors.  Guess what? They work a whole lot better! Way better than using a fork a knife. Who would have thought?! Simply take whatever you are eating, use BiteSizers to cut pieces to your liking, and that’s it!  I was honestly amazed at how easily it cut through this quesadilla.

IMG_3668 IMG_3670

I then went on to cut up some cantaloupe. Usually I use a fork and knife to cut fruit up.  Using BiteSizers was a whole lot easier. I went from cutting a quesadilla to cantaloupe, and then I cut up a PBJ just for fun.  They work on any food that I would ever feed my kids.  I love that it has a Snap-On cap to keep the blades good and for easy travel. I can throw them in my diaper bag easily.  There’s even a handy built-in sizer guide so you can cut food to the size recommended by experts as best for children.

IMG_3672

Since I started using BiteSizers both of my kids have tried more foods than ever. It’s just so easy to cut a little bite off of whatever I’m eating and share with my kids. BiteSizers are available exclusively at

www.mixedpears.com and www.amazon.com

I would highly recommend them to anyone with young children.

New Lip Balm Collection from Mwah

FFR image for posts

If you are like us, you are trying to make wiser, healthy choices not only in your grocery store shopping but also beauty and personal care products. For several years we have been using natural alternatives from shampoos and toothpaste to even lip balm. There are some ingredients in commercial lip balms that you will want to avoid, such as: parabens and sulfates. That’s why we made the switch. We go through a lot of lip balm during the winter months so we were eager to try a new natural lip care called Mwah®.

Mwah offers an effective, fresh, high-quality, and healthy spin on lip care that’s still affordable for all young women. Mwah lip care products are natural, void of harmful chemicals and preservatives, never tested on animals, produced in a 100% solar powered factory in southern California and with a portion of all profits donated to the World Wildlife Fund. The collection includes three lip balm products: a slider tub, a stick and a gloss, all available in a variety of yummy flavors for girls looking for an irresistible pucker.

Mwah Review

Mwah has very nice packaging and included a sturdy, plastic drawstring bag.

Our nearly 18 year old daughter liked it and says this about Mwah, “A bit greasy but it smells good and keeps your lips soft. It does not really have a taste so that should prevent Jr. from eating it!”

Our oldest son, nearly 13, thought it was too oily and doesn’t smell nice, but he is a boy and this is a girl product! ;)

The rest of us thought it smelled good! The smells are very true to their flavors and are not fake.

The other girls liked the extra oiliness because it made them feel like they did not have to apply so much.

So the majority liked Mwah!

Drop Your Pants for Underwareness Movement

Thank you to Depend for sponsoring today’s discussion.

Underwareness Bladder Leakage

Drop Your Pants for Underwareness Movement

I am not quite ready to drop my pants (and yes, some people are literally dropping their pants for this campaign!!) for Underwareness, but I do want to share the reality that over 65 million Americans experience bladder leakage. That is a pretty high number, isn’t it? And I am one of those 65 million. Maybe I didn’t do enough kegels during pregnancy or after I had my babies? Maybe I inherited weak bladder muscles? Whatever the cause, it affects me each and every day. I can no longer be as physically active as I once was without the aid of bladder leakage protection. I can no longer laugh, sneeze or cough without suffering from the offensive “bl”. Very dear people in my life joke about “needing a panty liner” when we get together, but the truth is, I need something more than a panty liner most days or I may find my pants wet!

So to help support Underwareness and bring the condition and Depend Underwear out of the wall of shame, Depend has created a new social movement and charitable cause called Underwareness. You, too, can share your story. You will be helping Underwareness, supporting the millions of Americans with bladder leakage and helping to break down the stigma of the condition and Depend Underwear. Depend offers discreet products that are thin, not a bulky diaper, which are a much more comfortable option for those suffering from this often viewed “shameful” condition. Thus, helping people regain their freedom and get their lives back. If you are wondering what to wear for bladder leakage, Depend products include:

Depend products

For Women:
– Depend® Silhouette® Briefs for Women
– Depend® for Women Underwear with FIT-FLEX™ Protection

For Men:
– Depend® Real Fit® Briefs for Men
– Depend® for Men Underwear With FIT-FLEX™ Protection

Underwareness Campaign

Depend will donate $1, up to $3 million, over the next three years to charities that advance the research, education and awareness of bladder leakage for: Every pant drop, photo and video shared. Use hashtags #Underwareness and #DropYourPants in your social sharing.

Depend- Full disclosure this article is financially supported by Depend

Christmas at Rose Hill Farm

FFR image for posts

Christmas at Rose Hill Farm


Christmas at Rose Hill Farm

Christmas at Rose Hill Farm is more of a back story of some of the older characters from Suzanne Woods Fisher’s other books, The Search and The Stoney Ridge series. You can read my reviews of book one, two and three at the corresponding links.

I thought this book was a sweet love story, but with a twist. It was fairly easy to guess who the character George was from his responses, though I do not remember him from The Search by Suzanne Woods Fisher!

I LOVED learning more about the history of roses. Thanks to my husband, roses are my favorite flower. I had a rose bush at our townhouse and had been told how hard they were to grow, but that particular one flourished. I was sad to leave it. I tried bringing slips here to our new home but they did not survive. Sniff. Sniff.

The idea of waiting for the rose to open before revealing its identity added intrigue to the story for me. I really wanted to know what type of rose they had on their hands!

This book was really all about relationships, dealing with past misunderstandings, and as usual, I really enjoyed reading Suzanne’s book. I found that it was sad, funny and very interesting, as I loved learning more about roses. I honestly do not have any negative thing to say. If you have a loved one who loves to read, this would be a wonderful Christmas book to gift them!

You can join bestselling, award-winning author Suzanne Woods Fisher for an Amish Christmas to remember at any major book store near you that stocks Revell Books.

Mission Belt Review

“Product was provided for this post as part of an opportunity with The Brand Connection.“

 

Mission Belt Review

belt 4

My husband is always having problems finding a belt that fits him comfortably.  Well, with Mission Belt Co., no need to look any further!  My husband has been wearing his Mission Belt to work daily and he loves it.  It’s easy to use and he is able to adjust the belt when needed.  We received the Mission Belt “Iron” in black leather.  The silver tone of the buckle is given a vintage look to it and yes it’s actually leather!  The buckle is heavy yet not intrusive.

belt 6

The Mission Belt Co. has a special belt with no holes. The underside of the belt has these rivet looking teeth that when you slide the belt it clicks into spot. Normal belt holes are spaced at 1 inch apart, the Mission Belt adjusts to ¼ inch.  When it’s time to take off the belt, you just push the release lever up and slide the belt out of the buckle.  Easy right!?
