Beanfields Nacho Bean and Rice Chips Giveaway / Review $20 Value / Gluten and Corn Free Snacking.



Winner of this years “Best of Show” award at the 2012 Natural Products Expo West!

What am I talking about?

Beanfields Crispylicious Bean and Rice Chips.

VegNews magazine had this to say: “We are obsessed (no, really) with Beanfields’ new Nacho Bean and Rice Chips. The vegan answer to Doritos."

So do I think VegNews is correct with their rave review?

Beanfields was confident I would think and taste the same thing, they sent me out an amazing selection of their Bean and Rice Chips to try out, share my thoughts and giveaway 6 bags to one lucky winner!  A $20 Value.

Before I share my review, I think you need to understand what a creative way Beanfields has found to  use Beans and Rice in making a Gluten and Corn Free Snack.  Beanfields which is a family owned business takes wholesome and nutritious beans and blend them with long grain rice to create snacks that are loaded with fiber and protein. In fact Beanfields Bean & Rice chips contain double the fiber and protein of most corn tortilla or potato chips!  Guilt Free Snacking!

Also an important fact:  Beanfields is free of every one of the FDA's eight most common ingredients that trigger food allergies.

So can something so healthy taste great?  My answer is YES ~ It is possible and Beanfields has mastered this feat!

Beanfields Nacho Bean & Rice Chips had a nice light texture and were full of flavor, in each and every bite.  I still can't believe these beauties are made out of beans and rice.  They did remind me of other Nacho cheese chips, but better because they were so light and covered in flavorful seasonings.

The Unsalted Beanfields variety allowed the natural flavors to shine through.  They reminded me of tortilla chips but had a nutty undertone. 

The Sea Salt Bean & Rice Chips took the Unsalted a step up with a nice light sprinkling of sea salt.  I was surprised how a little sea salt can add a nice balance of the nuttiness.

So, when I tried the Sea Salt and Pepper bag of Beanfields I was delighted with a gourmet experience.  They were perfectly balanced and seasoned.  The pepper added a whole other dimension without being too spicy.

I must admit my favorite where the Beanfields Pico De Gallo Bean & Rice Chips.
They were full of seasoning with a slight kick at the end.  It left me wanting to eat more and more and more.  I had to hide my bag from my boys, because after they polished off the Nacho bag, they wanted to try this one next. 

So who wanted to try some Beanfields for you own?  Get a jump on the giveaway listed below by liking Beanfields on Facebook and Twitter.  Good Luck and Healthful Snacking.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Celebration with Children's Claritin and Madagascar Movie Viewing Party!

Who is ready for Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted...which is coming to theaters very soon?

I know we are thanks to the help of Children's Claritin.  I am so proud to be a Claritin Mom Ambassador.  They provided us with all the fixings for the ultimate Madagascar Viewing Party, just in time to be prepared for the new movie coming out.

We had an amazing time...with a visit to our local small lake to get the wiggles out before settling down to watch Madagascar 1 and 2. 

Thanks to all the outside time, we only made it through one of the movies. All the quiet time allowed me to share the magic that Clartin has provided to my boys, especially during this allergy season.  It seemed like everyone was interested in the benefits of using Clartin daily.  Only Children's Claritin® provides Non-Drowsy 24hr Allergy relief with one pill a day.

Everyone went home happy and with some amazing loot bags!

Velata Warmer and Premium Gluten Free Belgian Chocolate Gourmet Fondue - Part of Scentsy Review

I never truly imagined how something so simple could be so much fun for our entire family!


If you have never head of Velata, you are missing out and so is your family and guests of any planned get togethers this Summer.

What is Velata?  Velata is Fun!  It is Gluten-Free! It is safe to use around children as there is no flame, no scorching and my favorite...easy to clean up (even the messy faces!).

Fondue for the 21st Century thanks to Scentsy.  Or should I say "Fundo" as that is the new name my children have given this amazing and super fun treat!

I was thrilled to see the variety of Velata Fondue Warmers available.  Velata offers 3 sleek designs and 8 beautiful and vibrant colors.  I selected the Clementine Curve Velata Fondue Warmer with also includes 4 making Fondue forks.  The color reminded my husband of one he had as a child.  But, let me tell you Velata Fondue Warmers are a step ahead of those old fashioned fondue sets.

Velata Fondue Warmers use a very simple 25 watt bulb to keep your chocolate at a pleasant and safe dipping temperature.  The bulb can be turned up or down with a dial on the cord to meet your temperature needs (it reminded me of  the dimming lights in some people's homes).  The melting dish is silicone so it stays nice and cool on the handles as well as the sides, which I LOVE.  My boys could touch it and rest their hands on the dish and not get burned!  This melting dish can even be heated in your microwave and then washed up in a dishwasher.

We had the opportunity to sample three of the four Velata Premium Belgian Chocolate varieties.  Which are crafted from premium cocoa beans by one of the most prestigious Belgian chocolate companies in the world, Velata Premium Chocolate is designed to melt beautifully and stay at the perfect temperature for dipping.

The Dark Chocolate was my favorite.  It was nice and rich and smooth, smooth, smooth!  It was divine!  I love how the Velata premium chocolate comes packaged.  All you do is put the microwavable pouch in microwave for 1 minute, then knead the pouch until the chocolate becomes smooth. 

Then pour it into your preheated Velata warmer....and you are ready to party!

But don't forget all the dipping fixings...
We loved using strawberries, mini marshmallow, macaroon cookies and bananas this time.  But the options are endless.

Here are some descriptions of the other Velata Dipping choices.


Caramel Milk Chocolate
Silky milk chocolate pairs with toasted brown sugar caramel for an over-the-top rush of sweetness. Smooth and unexpected, Velata Caramel Milk Chocolate is designed to delight.

Milk Chocolate
Velata Milk Chocolate is premium milk chocolate as it is meant to be: sweet, smooth, and creamy. It is classic, comforting, versatile, and undeniably delicious.

White Chocolate
A confection of billowy buttercream infused with delicate notes of vanilla. Subtle and dreamy, Velata White Chocolate elevates any moment into the sublime.

Rachael Ray's Nutrish Food for Dogs Review & Get a Free Sample. A perfect product for a Pet Lover.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Nutrish for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Any one who follows my blog knows I am a proud parent and dog owner/lover.  Our dogs Lucky (Lab) and Radar (Corgi) are a huge part of our family.  They are like our 4th and 5th child.  I am so happy we were able to rescue them and give them the love and care that they each so deserve.

I am always on the look out for new animal products to help my dogs stay healthy and a product they will enjoy.  I have been lucky enough to be given the opportunity to try out a great new dog product from Rachael Ray, Nutrish just 6 dry dog food.

I was given a sample of the "just 6" Limited Ingredient Recipe.  It only has 6 Natural Ingredients + Vitamins and Minerals.
It is 100% complete and balanced nutrition for adult dogs.  It doesn't contain any corn, wheat, or soy.  Lamb meal is the top ingredient, followed by five other wholesome ingredients.
I am so excited Rachael’s proceeds from Nutrish will go to pet charities and other organizations that do good for animals.  I don’t believe I could ask for a better combination; perfect balance in dog food and the proceeds go to help out animals in need.


I only received one sample bag to try out so I had to stragically place two different bowls with some of this super premium food down for my dogs to enjoy.  I was able to catch Radar in action while he was crunching away .



I believe he truly enjoyed “just 6”.  There wasn’t a single piece left in Radar’s bowl or Lucky’s.  My dogs can be picky eaters at times, but they couldn’t eat Nutrish fast enough.  The size of the kibble was perfect.  It was small enough for our Corgi to eat without any problems and large enough for our Lab to chew without swallowing the kibble whole.

The best part is you too can get a Free Sample of Nutrish.  Just click on the link free sample and fill out the easy form and your sample will be on its way.  I hope you and your dog enjoy your sample as much as we have.

Shielo COLOR PROTECT Shampoo & Conditioner Review



I can't believe how often it seems like I am showering and washing my hair with the warm weather upon up.  Every year it seems like my hair is pleading with me to find a new line of products to help keep each strand healthy and happy.
Well, I think I have found the one....and my hair any husband are currently thanking me.
I first have to say, I love! love! love the smell of both these top quality hair products.  I am not sure how to describe it other than light, fruity and clean smelling.  I enjoy how the pleasant aroma remains throught out the day.
This shampoo uses a unique technology that allows proteins to molecularly fuse with your hair to reinforce hair's bonds and heightened volume.  IT also has a low pH to compact cuticles for superior color retention.
The creamy conditioner is formulated to perfect porous hair strands to create an ultra-smooth, highly- reflective surface for a multidimensional richness with added color luminosity. It seals in hair cuticle, locking in color, creating shine and shielding hair from thermal and environmental stresses.

My hair looks, feels and smells amazing.  I feel like a million dollars.  My hair actually feels stronger after using my samples for a week.  And my hair color has been transformed from drab to fab!

Thank you Shielo....you are a head above the rest!

Now And Zen4U Cancer Awareness Zen Garden Review

We all need to find that special time to slow down and just relax.  NO not just find the time, but MAKE the time!  Think back to your day today....how busy was it?  If it is anything like mine, you must feel like you are constantly chasing your tail with no end in site.

After being diagnosed with Cervical Cancer a few days before Christmas of 2007, while in the first trimester of pregnancy with my 3rd son, I had to have an express lesson on how to relax and just believe and let my faith see me and my unborn son though.  Thanks to my faith and positive attitude along with some Amazing Doctors...I am celebrating 3 1/2 years of being CANCER FREE and I have three beautiful boys and a wonderful husband in my life.

It is amazing how after learning how to relax and letting things just happen, quickly went out the door and my daily and crazy routine of so called life kicked back into full gear. 

That is where a company I just stumbled across on Facebook called Now And Zen4U has stepped in by sharing with me a visual and interactive Zen Garden...BUT not just any Zen Garden

Moppy - Natural House Floor Cleaner and Scrubber Review

Over a month ago I had the opportunity to giveaway and review three amazing Natural Cleaning products from Natural House.  And I must admit I am still faithful using Sinky, Trashy and Flushy at our house.  My weekly routine now involves using each of these products every Saturday. 

I am so pleased and amazed at what a difference Natural Probiotics are.  They play an important role of the Natural House products.

I was thrilled when my newest sample of Natural House Moppy arrived to review.  My hopes were very high.  Would it meet my expectations?

Before I used Moppy I had to read about it to make sure I understood what I needed to do.  "Moppy Probiotic Cleaning packet is a concentrated, professional-strength, all-natural floor cleaner. Powerful, plant derived scrubbing agents cut through dirt and lift grime from the floor. Moppy’s probiotics remain on the surface to help maintain a germ-free and odor-free household. Moppy is safe to use on multiple surfaces including high-gloss surfaces, terrazzo, marble, slate, vinyl, tile, and finished hardwood surfaces."

I love the fact that Moppy is Eco-Friendly, non-toxic, biodegradable.  It is perfect for a household full of boys!  It also doesn't leave a film or dull your flooring.  It was nice to read that Moppy is so simple to use.  "Toss" one pre-measured packet of Moppy in a gallon of water and you are ready to clean.  The active ingredients in Moppy keep working to maintain germ and odor free surfaces.    And of course a package of Moppy will last you a month, just like at the other Natural House products.

I can't wait to see what Natural House will come up with next. 


Why don't you show Natural House a little love on  Facebook and Twitter.  I am sure they will love to hear from you.

I dream of Maid Service in my home.....

As a working mother of three boys, I feel almost every waking moment is spent House Cleaning.  It can be an exhaustive task.  How I would love to use a Maid Service like Maid Service Baltimore MD. I smile at that thought; the free time I would have on my hands to do other fun things. 

Did I mention I would love to have highly trained people to come in and clean my house from top to bottom weekly?  It would be like a mini vacation each and every week!  No more toilet cleaning!  No more dusting all the itty bitty knickknacks that are always neglected. No more vacuuming – crazy but I might actually miss that, as I find vacuuming relaxing.  But, I think I could make the sacrifice and allow someone else to help with that chore.  No more sweeping.  I could go on for hours and hours! 

Alright ladies…I think we need to tell our significant others that we need a break!  We need a break from our household cleaning, at least once!  So put your feet up and relax and see what happens. 

Warmer Weather is upon us...Are you ready for entertaining?

I can't believe school is already out and the weather continues to warm up.  It makes me want to start entertaining at our home and in our backyard.  I long for the nights with family and friends around our fire ring.  It makes for such a magical evening for all.  I am considering sprucing up some of my party wear.  I would love to make a HUGE statement to start out my summer of entertaining.  A perfect addition to my foodie collection would be to buy some thick walled 12 oz. coffee mugs so we can enjoy a nice stout cup of black coffee as the night cools.

But, I can't forget about those hot summer dinner parties.  Oh, should I get an engraved 5 inch cocktail shaker to get the party off on a great note?  The possibilities are endless when it comes to making refreshing drinks with one.  And if I had to chose one more upgrade with my party ware it would have to be aubergine-colored dinnerware.  I would love to enjoy something fresh off the grill on these beautiful plates.

If you had a choice, what party ware would you upgrade this year?

Storyland Yoga Children's DVD Giveaway / Review $14.99 Value

http://www.tomoson.com/?code=CONTESTe8b4a86c792679d131d874523afcfdb8">>

Kids Yoga DVD - Storyland Yoga

Finally my boys have there own "workout video" to enjoy and help them stay physically fit and flexible.

I love that Playful Planet's Video Storyland Yoga has won many awards including:

Winner of Parent’s Choice Approved, Mom’s Choice Gold, Dr. Toy’s Best Green Product and Creative Child Magazine “Preferred Choice” in the Environmentally Friendly Category.

With that many awards there is no doubt this video has to be amazing and eco friendly as they use 100% recycled packaging.  And I can now agree as my boys loved our sample to review!  It is so easy to follow and really keeps children engaged.  Storyland Yoga is recommended for children ages 3 to 8.  How perfect for my family with a 3, 6 and 8 year old. 

Storyland Yoga is a fun-filled adventure that infuses children with an eco-conscious message. Two unique stories, “Save the Whale” and “Condor Trek” engage a child’s imagination through storytelling. Kid’s learn yoga postures by becoming part of the story and imitating animals. Yoga is great exercise and helps to calm children giving them greater focus and increased clarity. Storyland Yoga is equally fun for parents and family members who can benefit from yoga, while enjoying ‘organic time’ with their children.

I like the two stories offered, so they can choose which story they want to enjoy or if time allows both.  The Condor Trek lasts 23 minutes and the Save the Whale Run lasts 18 minutes.
‘Empowering Kids and Their Families to Be Healthy and Live Sustainably.’

Want to buy your children Storyland Yoga? Just click here and get busy ordering this fun awarding winning workout video for children.

Teas' Tea by ITO EN Giveaway / Review



What inspires you to make healthy decisions for yourself as well as your family?

Keep that in mind while I share with you a great product I had the opportunity to sample and review right here- PLUS enter for your chase to win some of your own.


ITO EN has out done themselves when they created Tea's Tea.  This healthy and delicious line has blossomed.  Did you know Beth Shaw (founder of YogaFit) was buying Teas' Tea 2 Liter bottles of Jasmin Green Tea by the case!  If you are not familiar with Yoga...it is a holistic lifestyle that includes the awareness of how you can care for yourself body, mind and soul.  Green Tea is truly a perfect balance with yoga as it contains health and wellness benefits.

Beth Shaw explained her love for ITO EN green tea as "is truly the only beverage that is anti aging, good for weigh management and gives me just the right amount of energy to get through my busy life. I drink it every day.”

I was excited to try the Unsweetened Teas' Tea Jasmine Green Tea.  Authentically brewed, naturally high in tea antioxidants, entirely unsweetened / zero calories, and containing 100% or more of daily value of vitamin C - no wonder Teas' Tea Jasmine Green Tea is Beth Shaw's daily healthy habit choice. The Jasmine Green tea is infused with the scent of Jasmine flowers by alternating several layers of the flower within the green tea leaves prior to brewing. It provides a refreshing taste and soothing fragrance. This tea was a pleasure to drink and enjoy.  It was so light and clean, with no added colors.  I found it to be refreshing and soothing at the same time.  I can't wait to try Teas' Tea other Unsweetened Teas

I also sampled Teas' Tea Lightly Sweetened Blueberry Green Tea.  This purely refreshing drink is sweetened with all natural cane sugar and is low in calories.  If blueberry is not your first choice, you need to check out the other lightly sweetened tea flavors.  I found the blueberry choice to not be overly sweet which allowed the blueberries to shine through with their bright flavors.  I can't wait to try Teas' Tea lightly sweetened Mango Oolong Tea.

I almost forgot to mention that all the bottles used by Teas' Tea are  non-leaching, recyclable and PETE 1/PBA Free.  And Teas' Tea is on Facebook and Twitter....check these out and show some love by sharing a comment!

So you remember the first question I asked?  If not scroll back up and see and keep reading to find out my answer.  I am so inspired by my boys and my wonderful husband.  After battling cancer, I find it very important to make positive choices for myself, my boys, my husband and personally my headily.  In order to keep my heatlh in check, I try my best to make healhy food choices and that is where Teas' Tea comes in to my life and hopefully my routine.  I also have learned to enjoy the little moments in life...you never know if you will have the opportunity to experience those things again.

I makes me think of a family trip to the mountains we took last Fall.  


It was amazing and we all are still talking about it.  Now get busy making healthy choices for yourself and your loved ones...and enter to win some Teas' Tea.

Noxicare Natural Pain Relief Giveaway / Review



As a full time working mom and a busy blogger on my free time, it always seems like my body has some type of ache and pain or should I say pains.

One of my biggest areas of discomfort...and I am almost embarrassed to admit is my right shoulder area...thanks to too much time at the computer and working clicking my computer mouse.  I am sure I am not the only blogger out their with this pain in the shoulder too.

I now have been using Noxicare™ Natural Pain Relief cream for around a week.  I am in LOVE!  It is amazing and doesn't have an odor at all.  Which I was surprised as out of the seven ingredients in this natural, patented pain relief formula, I assumed they would create some smell.  Especially since a few of these are turmeric, ginger, rosemary and holy basil.  But no odor and it soaks into your skin so fast, with no greasy residue.  The revolutionary cream quickly starts to work and continues for hours!

It is awesome that natural ingredients can alleviate inflammation, muscle aches and nerve pain—with NO known side effects and without a prescription.... Natural pain reliever.

So who wants to win some Noxicare for yourself or someone you love?  Enter below for your chance and good luck!!

Don't forget to Check on Noxicare's webpage and order some today!  They are also on Facebook and Twitter.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
