Get Your Superfoods with gimMe Organic Seaweed Snacks!

*DISCLOSURE* Thank you to gimMe Snacks for providing product samples in order to facilitate this post.  All thoughts are strictly my own. 


Today, I am going to share one of our go-to summer snacks made from the amazing superfood: SEAWEED!  


We love gimMe Seaweed Snacks!  They have so many different options for seaweed lovers.  Let's take a look at a few of our favorites!

gimMe Seaweed Snacks come in single serving trays in a pack of six in several yummy flavors.  We love the sweet and salty Teryaki flavor and the simply seasoned Sea Salt flavor is great too!


These roasted seaweed snacks are perfect for lunchboxes and on-the-go snacking.  There are only 25 calories per serving and they are packed with flavor.  Seaweed is naturally loaded with protein, fiber and nutrients.


These are gimMe's original seaweed snack and are made from premium organic seaweed and roasted to crispy perfection.  You can find them in other yummy flavors like Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Toasted Sesame and Wasabi.  One tray equals a serving size and is about 10 mini sheets.  Yum!


gimMe also makes Seaweed Thins, savory and sweet crispy wafers loaded with flavor!


These nutrient - rich super snacks combine premium USDA Organic, Non - GMO roasted seaweed with three tasty flavor profiles.  We love the Sriracha Almond and the Toasted Coconut Thins! Packed with plant-based protein, fiber, and only 100 calories per bag, they’re the perfect everyday snack.


gimMe also offers Sushi Nori sheets:


These full-sized sheets are perfect for using to roll your own sushi!  Made from the highest grade organic seaweed on the planet, gimMe's organic sushi nori is premium restaurant quality. With zero calories and zero carbs, it’s the perfect start to all your sushi making adventures.



If you are a fan of the larger sheets for snacking or crumbling on top of your entrees, check out these Big Sheets: 


These are just like the smaller sheets, but jumbo-sized! With only 1 carb per serving, Big Sheets are the perfect, gluten-free alternative for wrapping up your burritos, making a sandwich, or as a way to serve lettuce wraps. Add a boost of nutrients when crumbled into classic dishes like soup, salad, and even popcorn.  Sometimes, we like to crumble them over top of rice dishes too. The possibilities are endless!

All gimMe Seaweed Snacks are gluten free, vegetarian, USDA Certified Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified so you can be sure you are giving your family an awesomely delicious snack, guilt-free!  If you've never tried roasted seaweed snacks, I highly recommend that you do!  gimMe Snacks is the perfect first experience for newbies.  If you are already a lover of yummy seaweed snacks, check out all the awesomeness that is gimMe Snacks this summer!

Get Fresh In 5 Minutes with Busy Beauty! + #Giveaway #BackToSchool

*DISCLOSURE* Thank you to Busy Beauty for providing product samples in order to facilitate this post.  All thoughts are strictly my own. 


Back to school means back to busy mornings.  Crazy-hectic school mornings are not something anybody looks forward too, but thanks to Busy Beauty, we found some products that will help us get out the door fast without compromising how we look (or smell😊)


Busy Beauty products are great for teens at home, young dorm-dwellers and grown ladies alike!  They offer showerless solutions for looking and feeling clean, because sometimes you just don't have time for a shower! 

A great way to try everything Busy Beauty has to offer is by grabbing the Showerless Gift Kit.  Even on your busiest of days, our Showerless Gift Kit has you covered from head to toe!

Each Showerless Gift Kit contains:

10 Showerless Body Wipes

Feel fresh and clean even when there’s no time for a shower with our Showerless Body Wipes!  Each body wipe is 15 inches by 12 inches and is TWICE as thick as the average baby wipe.  Showerless Body Wipes contain peppermint oil and tea tree oil, which have antibacterial properties. They also contain green tea extract, which increases circulation for a healthy glow, and chamomile extract, which soothes skin. These wipes are perfect for all skin types and leaving you smelling as fresh as a daisy!

Showerless Shampoo

This quick fix soaks up sweat, oil, and odor from the roots with the use of rice and oat starches. Showerless Shampoo is a dry shampoo spray that goes on translucent, meaning you don't have to worry about white residue left in your hair. so that you never have to worry about pesky white residue left on your roots.  Showerless Shampoo is safe to use on all hair types and hair colors, including color-treated hair.

Showerless Conditioner 

Showerless Conditioner tames flyaways and frizz to keep your hair looking smooth and polished. It's lightweight, non-greasy formula doesn’t leave any excessive oiliness or greasiness.  Just like the shampoo, the Showerless Conditioner is safe for all hair types and colors, including color-treated hair.

After Busy Beauty Showerless Shampoo and Conditioner:

Showerless Shave Gel

Showerless Shave Gel is the only product on the market that enables you to get a close, smooth shave WITHOUT water!  This shave gel is perfect for shaving small areas, such as armpits or other missed spots, on-the-go. It's made with ginger root oil, which reduces irritation and inflammation caused by the razor. This shave gel also contains tea tree oil and clove leaf oil, which both have antibacterial properties. Ginger root oil reduces irritation from the razor, while eucalyptus leaf oil increases circulation for a healthy glow.  The best part about Showerless Shave Gel is you can rub in any extra shave gel as a moisturizer. This stuff is amazing!

See what I mean?  This kit is amazing to have on hand for those nutso mornings. It's also great for travel and even camping, those times when you may not ave access to a shower, but still want to smell and look fresh.

Gigantic Body Wipes

Another awesome product line Busy Beauty has is Gigantic Body Wipes. These are 3 times bigger and 2 times thicker than baby wipes and great for cleaning the entire body.  Like the regualr body wipes, Gigantic Body Wipes are made with tea tree oil and peppermint oil, which have antibacterial properties while still being gentle on skin.  They also come in 3 unique scents.  Peppermint Pomelo: a clean peppermint, chamomile and citrus scent, Kiwano Starfruit: a refreshing lemongrass and aloe scent and Dandelion Dragon: a tropical scent with a hint of cinnamon.  All of them smell great, way better than a baby wipe!

Here is a size comparison between the regular size body wipe and the Gigantic Body Wipe:

Both wipes do an amazing job, but the Gigantic Body Wipe can cover a lot more surface area.

Be prepared for the chaos with awesome showerless products from Busy Beauty this back-to-school season!

Clear Conscience Pet Treats for Happy Pups!

*DISCLOSURE* Thank you to Clear Conscience Pet for providing product samples in order to facilitate this post.  All thoughts are strictly my own. 

Keeping our pup, Harley Mae, happy and healthy is pretty important to us.  She is, after all, a member of our family.  Luckily, she's pretty easy to please.  She's not picky about food or treats, though she definitely has favorites, she will eat pretty much anything.  That makes it even more important for us to make sure she's getting foods and treats that are made form only the healthiest and high quality ingredients.  We are always on the hunt for awesome goodies to spoil her with that aren't full of junk, but are just as good for her as they are tasty.  We recently got to check out some products from Clear Conscience and Harley Mae seems over the moon with them! 


Clear Conscience is proud to offer a great line of good for pets treats!  They create pure products that you can trust, made with limited, simple ingredients. Take a look at what Harley Mae has been enjoying over the last few weeks:

Super Gravy

This is a powdered mix...a just add water and shake gravy-like topper that Harley goes gaga for!  There are three flavors: Arfredo, Barkinara and Paw Jus...no wonder she seems to love them!  These mixes are enhanced with digestive enzymes and probiotics for better digestion with every meal.  You can use the mix to make a thicker topper for kibble or a thinner broth.


Often, we use canned food as a topper for Harley's dry kibble, but Super Gravy comes several servings to a pouch which means less waste than single serve canned food.  Yay for being Earth-friendly!  



Whether you have a picky eater or not, your pup is more likely to devour their meal if it is topped with Super Gravy!

Lamb Trachey Chewz

Trachey Chewz satisfy your dog’s instinctive urge to chew while providing preventive dental health benefits by scraping teeth and stimulating gums.  Trachey Chewz are 100% natural artisan roasted trachea from pasture and grass raised lamb and beef. Best of all, no worries- they are ALL NATURAL and 100% DIGESTIBLE so you know they are safe. 


Harley Mae loves these!  She isn't a fan of larger treats, so I love that these can be easily broken into smaller pieces.   As an added joint health bonus, trachea provides a natural source of glucosamine, chondroitin, and collagen. 


Notice the stuff along the outside of the trachea?  These treats are enhanced with Clear Conscience's proprietary SuperFood Dry Rub Infusion™ of flax plus air-dried spinach, tomato, and carrot, whole food sources of Omega-3 fatty acids and immune boosting phytonutrients.  Pretty awesome!

Lamb Airy Bark

Harley is absolutely in love with these!  They are formulated with a light and “airy” texture that makes it simple to break into smaller treats. They are also enhanced with the SuperFood Dry Rub™ infusion.  Since you can break them down, Lamb Airy Bite are the healthy alternative to typical training or snack treats which often include glycerin, sugars, and other “fillers” that your dog doesn’t need. 


Since they are high protein and low fat, you don't have to feel guilty about "over" treating your fur baby.


Clear Conscience makes it easy to treat your pup to some really tasty goodies without compromising their health.  Spoil your pup this summer with some of these awesome treats!

Keep Everyone's Eyes Safe This Summer with Poolgles!

*DISCLOSURE* Thank you to Poolgles for providing product samples in order to facilitate this post.  All thoughts are strictly my own. 

Having a pool is amazing in this summer heat!  With as much time as we spend in the pool, good eye protection is super important.  It can be pretty tricky to find goggles that the kiddos actually enjoy wearing.  They have to be comfortable and have a good seal.  They also need to be made from quality materials so they can withstand daily use, pool chemicals and Texas heat.  We recently got the chance to try out Poolgles, "The Best Goggles Ever" according to the box: 


So, why are Poolgles the best goggles ever?  Let's take a look at their features:


Poolgles have UV protected and anti-fogging lenses to provide a clear view when swimming.  Many other goggles and swim masks we've tried fog up fairly quickly, which can get pretty frustrating.  Poolgles stay clear making swimming with goggles on a lot more fun. 


Poolgles adjust instantly.  Even young children can quickly tighten or loosen these goggles with no assistance.  The patented strap adjusts instantly to any head size.  This pair fits just as securely on a 3 year old as it does on a 50 year old.  Great for sharing when you have others over for a swim!


Poolgles have an anti-tangle strap which means no more getting goggle straps tangled in long hair.  One of the reasons I dislike most goggles is that it's quite painful to get them on and off with my long hair.  Not with Poolgles,...pain-free everytime!

Poolgles float!  That's right!  No more chasing your goggles down to the bottom of the deep end.

Poolgles come in several awesome colors and are super affordable for the amazing job they do!


We are really enjoying our Poolgles!  If you and your kiddos swim a lot, we would definitely recommend grabbing a few pairs of Poolgles this summer!

The Root Beer Float Challenge Just Made Family Game Night More Fun!

*DISCLOSURE* Thank you to Playtacular for providing product samples in order to facilitate this post.  All thoughts are strictly my own. 


What better to celebrate this summer than a super awesome family game night?!  The Root Beer Float Challenge is one of our new favorite games that the whole family loves to play.



The tasty new game, which you can find in Target Stores and online, uses a unique game play strategy as players look to win the game by completing a series of solo, head-to-head and cooperative challenges using the ingredients of a Root Beer Float.



The Root Beer Float Challenge really gets players moving and active while playing a fun, interactive game.  Most of the physical challenges are easy enough for young and old alike. 



To play The Root Beer Float Challenge (MSRP $19.99), 2-8 players ages 8 and up take turns competing in various Solo, Cooperative, and Head-to-Head challenges. If you complete the challenge successfully, you earn an Ingredient card. But if you fail the challenge, your float will be sunk until your next challenge is achieved. The object of the game is to be the first player to build a complete Root Beer Float (root beer, ice cream, cherry and straw) and be named The Root Beer Float Challenge Champion!



The game arrives in an oversized tin root beer can package and contains 120 Challenge Cards, 80 Ingredient Cards, 1 Ice Cream Ball, 2 replica Cherries, 4 Straws, and 1 Challenge Die.  


This super fun game usually takes about 30 minutes, the perfect amount of time to keep everyone entertained and engaged.


We loved playing The Root Beer Float Challenge at our last family gathering.  It really is a blast!  Check it out for your next family game night!!
