Nut-tritious Foods Nut Butter Review and Giveaway

Image
Nut-Tritious Foods sent me some of their different nut butters to review! Here's some info from their website: Because Nut Butters and Seed Butters are pre-ground, they are easier to digest than just eating whole nuts or seeds. Grinding them makes the essential fatty acids easier to obtain because you don't have to work as hard to break them down. Most people don't chew their food enough, so nut butters make the digestion of nuts and absorption of nutrients easier than eating nuts alone. Agave Nectar
Agave Nectar is a wonderful natural sweetener used to gently sweeten the nut butters. Agave comes from the Agave Cactus, most famous for Tequila. While the nectar does not contain any alcohol, it is an amazing source of a form of fructose called insulin. This is responsible for the low glycemic index and low glycemic load properties of agave, which means that agave nectar doesn't cause a blood sugar spike after consuming it. It typically raises blood sugar only …

We LOVED these flatbreads! They were all extremely tasty and we had fun trying new recipes with them! 
First up, I used the Spinach flavor and made some ham and swiss roll ups. I also made turkey and american roll ups as well.


Next, we had MAKE YOUR OWN PIZZA NIGHT with our nephew, okay technically, Jared's nephew, but mine in 9 DAYS!) Boston. He was a very happy little boy when he was eating his cheese pizza. :)

We liked using the Olive Oil & Garlic with the pizzas because they were a l…

Bachelorette Party Fun! (and Sash Review)

Image
The House of Bachelorette sent me a sash to review from their line of bachelorette party supplies.
The Super Glam Bride Sash has an MSRP of $25.99 and is available at TheHouseofBachelorette.com. The direct link is here: http://www.thehouseofbachelorette.com/Super_Glam_Bride_Rhinestone_Sash_p/sash0rhnbrdglam.htm
The sash is made in-house by our rhinestone artists, and is a fantastic addition to a bachelorette party or bridal shower. 
******************************************* My Review: 9/10! The sash was BEAUTIFUL and very sparkly! I enjoyed wearing it around downtown Nashville. The only reason I gave it a 9 was because it was a little too big, but Ashley safety pinned it and it held up just fine all night!
We had an absolute blast!    I was given a list of things to do and I did ALL OF THEM! My girls even had to add more because I got through them so quickly! haha.
I made sure that Courtney (my maid of honor) kept them VERY MODEST and clean, because I am NOT a crazy, wild, party …

YMX workout top review!

Image
I was selected for a YMX campaign through FitFluential! I received this product for review purposes. 
I was sent this BEAUTIFUL workout top. 

I LOVED the way it fit! It wasn't too tight or too loose. It was JUST RIGHT. The material was silky smooth and helped keep me cool when I was sweating. I liked how different the design was from all my other workout clothes. I think it is very unique! :)
