Bai {Review}


About Bai:

At first Bai was sold only in health food stores in Princeton, New Jersey where the antioxidant infusions were created. Word of mouth about its delicious, refreshing nature ensured the beverages would move into other areas quickly. Soon they could be found in specialty stores and in major retail markets throughout the northeast and California. Within months of its founding, Bai had launched a second line of infusions, Bai 5, a low-sugar, 5-calorie beverage created in response to customer's interest in even more healthful options to sugary, high-calorie drinks. 


What I reviewed:
Bai sent me a package with all the flavors in the Bai5 line. Oh my...these drinks are so tasty! I can't lie, I like soda and sweet teas/drinks. However, I don't like the excess of sugars and high calories that come with it. With Bai drinks I don't have to worry about that. It's 100% natural and only 5 calories per serving (2 serving in each bottle). I feel great knowing that what I'm drinking is pack with antioxidants and the only sweetener used is organic stevia and erythritol. 

The flavors are fresh and refreshing. If I had to pick a favorite it would have to be Costa Rica Clementine. I love anything citrus and this drink really hits the spot for me. 



What's your flavor?
Brasilia Blueberry*Congo Pear*Costa Rica Clementine*Ipanema Pomegranate*Malawi Mango
Panama Peach*Sumatra Dragonfruit*Limu Lemonade

Furry Travelers {Review}


About Furry Travelers:
Furry Travelers specializes in unique and good for your pet products - many that you won't find at your local pet store. We have dog booster seats, travel bowls, car safety harnesses, pet strollers, dog crates, dog leashes, dog slings , elk antlers, healthy treats, Doggles, collars, harnesses and more! 
Furry Travelers is also the manufacturer of the To Go Bowl, the multi-purpose travel water bowl designed to fit into a car's cup holder.

What I reviewed:

Furry Travelers shipped Bella a  To Go Bowl and I have to say I was excited! To Go Bowl has been spotlighted on Good Morning America, Dog Fancy, and The Daily Buzz. After reading about it I can to see what all the buzz was about!

After using the bowl once I can see why everyone loves it. To Go Bowl is a product that all dog owners should have. The bowl fits in any cup holder and has a splash guard. That means no spills in your car/truck. I use my To Go Bowl on every adventure I have with Bella. I never have to worry about water or food because it is conveniently and securely in the bowl. The water and treat holders come with lids making it super easy to be mess free. I can even use it out of the car. I just take the cup portion off the bowl and it sits neatly on the ground.

The price is only $19.99 and it comes in eight fun colors (pearl, silver, red, blue, pink, lavender, cream, yellow). It may seem pricey for a bowl but there are so many ways to use this product. Not to mention it makes traveling a lot less stressful for you and your pup. Well worth $19.99 to me. 

Other aspects I love about this product:
Dishwasher safe
BPA-free plastic
Made in the USA


I give this product two paws up! It's one of my puppy product staples. :)

Snuggle Pet Products {Review}

About Snuggle Pet Products:
Snuggle Pet Products have a goal is to provide comfort to puppies and kittens (both young and old).

Dog Fancy Magazine Best Puppy Product of the year!

Comfort *Soothe*Reduce Separate Anxiety

What Bella Reviewed:
Bella got to try out the Snuggle Puppy. I was very interested in testing this product out because Bella does seem to have typical puppy separation anxiety. If I leave the room or put her in her crate she will whine and bark. 

When Bella was first introduced to her Snuggle Puppy she did a little head tilt in confusion. The puppy has a heart beat so she didn't know if it was a toy or a real puppy to hang out with. Of course now she knows now it isn't real but she stills loves it just the same. She enjoys napping next to it and pulling the puppy around by the ear. 

Neat Features not seen in other dog toys:
Realistic heartbeat 
Slight warmth provided by heat pack 



Bella lovin' on her Snuggle Puppy.

Whitening Lightning {Review}

About Whitening Lightning:
Whitening Lightning is the go to provider for your favorite celebrities teeth whitening needs.  If you haven’t seen our work on Dancing with the stars you may have seen us at the Academy of Country Music Awards, Criminal Minds, Modern Family, The Voice, or the Bachelor.  We have also been featured on the “Marie Show”,  Rikki lake & Fox News.


What I reviewed:

Dial A Smile kit
This kit is so easy to use and it's great that you can get whiter teeth at home! First, check where your teeth shade is before using the product.

 
Then just follow the rest of the instructions. 
1. Dry your teeth (sheet included).
2. Put Vitamin E gel on mouth and lip (included).
3. Brush gel on teeth.
4. Put LED light in mouth. 
5. Wait 20 minutes. 

What I really like it how quick the process is. During the 20 minute wait you can check your email, read a magazine, play an app. The time really passes and before you know it you have whiter, brighter teeth! After the first session my teeth where 2/3 shades whiter. There is a total of 3 treatments in each kit and you can space them however you choose. Overall, I loved the product and the results I achieved. Having renewed, white smile really gives me a boost of confidence and a wonderful feeling! How can you not smile about that :)

Great aspects that stand out to me:

-Little to no sensitivity.
-Easy to use.
-Gluten free
-Cruelty free
-Made in the U.S.A.
-Highest grade of hydrogen peroxide is used in Whitening Lightning products.

Check out my results!



Check out this deal!
Use the code Monicakit to purchase the Dial A Smile Kit for only $69.00! That's an unbelievable deal considering that the retail value is $399.00. You save $330.00 on a Dial A Smile Kit. Check it out at www.whiteninglightning.com

Moonglow Jewerly {Review}

Moonglow is a fine jewelry company with a hand-crafted specialty line that casts its light across the globe garnering a solid customer base and revenues worldwide.  Founded in 2003 in Montreal, Canada, Moonglow cultivates and markets a unique concept that brings jewelry to life!


Fun pieces that Moonglow Jewelry create! 

What I reviewed:
I received the Moonglow classic necklace with black Swarovski. What I beautiful piece it is! This necklace is made of pewter and has a delicate black Swarovski crystal at the bottom of the necklace. The material gives it a vintage feel and the moon phrase a modern twist. The best part about this necklace is the customization. You pick any month, day, and year that you want the piece to represent. How neat is that! Pick a day you want to remember; wedding day, anniversary, birth or death in the family. The moon for that night will be placed on the jewelry you choose. The necklace came in a quality box as well as a card explaining what the pieces means, a certificate of authenticity and warranty card. This makes for a great gift for yourself or someone else! 

I love my necklace as the moon phase represents the day I reconnected with my love. A special memory that puts a smile on my face :)


Jewelry with meaning.

Kodiak Cakes {Review}

About Kodiak Cakes:
In 1995, we at Kodiak Cakes set out the restore the American tradition of whole grain flapjacks with our first product, Kodiak Cakes Frontier Flapjack and Waffle Mix. Based on an old family recipe, our flapjack and waffle mix was developed by combining 100% natural ingredients into a magical formula which takes you back to the old frontier, when a hearty breakfast was imperative for a hard day’s work.

Old family recipe. 100% natural ingredients....I'm in!

What I reviewed:

So I decided to make these for the family on a recent vacation. First, I LOVE how easy it was to make these. 1 cup water, 1 cup mix...super simple. While I was cooking them they were flying on the plate! Everybody wanted some hot of the pan. They were so yummy! Light and fluffy yet they kept us full until lunch. The whole grain really satisfies. I was really surprised by how homemade they tasted. With just mix and water, you could fool anyone by telling them you were slaving away in the kitchen :) It's also so simple to make them your own with blueberries, chocolate chips, etc. 

I would give this mix two big thumbs up! It's an all natural and hearty way to start the day. 

Oh and another thing I love about Kodiak Cakes! A portion of sales goes to wildlife conservation. 


Ingredients: 100% whole grain wheat flour, 100% whole grain oat flour, non-fat dry milk, dry honey (honey, wheat starch), leavening (sodium bicarbonate, sodium aluminum phosphate, monocalcium phosphate), egg whites, salt. Just add water.

NO-AD Protective Tanning Lotion, SPF 4 and 8
NO-AD After Sun Aloe Vera Lotion and Gel


What I reviewed:
While this sunscreen is for kids, adults can use it too! I have very sensitive skin, which makes this sunscreen lotion perfect for me. This formula is for sensitive skin and is both sweat/water resistant (great for days at the beach or pool). For the sport sunscreen lotion it too has all the same benefits of the kids formula. I think the only difference is the bottle doesn't state it is for sensitive skin.
