What I reviewed:
First, let me say this line is very sneaky. I couldn't tell veggies were in the mix at all. I even used the pasta sauce and no peanut butter with my meals for the family...they couldn't tell the difference. The pasta sauce was rich in flavor and I used it with spaghetti and meatballs. The no peanut butter was used on pancakes along with jam. The only differences with the spread is it was a little sweeter than regular peanut butter. I love the fact that both children and adults can use this spread without any worry of having an allergic reaction. Now that I know they make this spread I want to tell anyone with allergies about it! :)

Hugrz: Boots Transformed {Review}

About Hugrz:
Hugrz are one of the fastest growing trends. Recently featured on the Today show, they've also been seen on many celebrities. These accessories simply slip over your shoes to add a pop of color and texture. Wear them scrunched down on short boots, pulled up on tall boots, or pulled up on your legs to make your short boots look tall! Make them even more your own by switching out the accessories. While they were originally designed for the various shearling boots, they look great on many styles, including heels, little booties and even cowboy boots!

Fall is almost here. Time to start thinking about jazzing up those boots!


What I reviewed:
I was so excited to get the chance to try Hugrz! Living in New England means colder weather is right around the corner. During fall and winter I am almost always wearing boots. Sometimes those boots can get boring and what better way to jazz them up than to up a pair of Hugrz on them. 
What's great about these fashion accessories is it can be wore both over a boot or inside it. This makes for two unique ways to rock your style. You can also customize this wrap further with adding accessories found at Hugrz.
I picked the Ziggy Knit in the Bennington Collection. I chose this item because I love the colors used; turquoise, black, purple, camel and cream. This wraps works best with boots with a circumference of 12" and can be used with boots up to 14" tall. I wish the circumference of the wrap was a little bigger (or have the option to making it larger). My calves are larger and it was hard to fit them on my taller boots.

What I reviewed:
If you have even read any posts on my blog, you know I love 
coffee. So, it was only natural that I would want to review a mug! I 
chose the Go Green Earthware Classic Mug. This 12 oz. mug is 
perfect for any warm beverage on a chilly fall day! 

What I enjoy about this mug is someone handcrafted this mug just for me. It is a quality mug that I know will last for years to come. The color used for this mug is a neutral earth tone. At the bottom of the mug is a stamp showing the year the piece was made; as well as the Emerson Creek Pottery logo. 

The only aspect of this mug I am not crazy about is the rough bottom it has. You have to be careful when placing this piece on the table.  Other than that, I really enjoy this mug!

Running Chics {Review}


"Because life is a race, and you deserve to be comfortable!"

About Running Chics:
Whether you're running a race or just running around town, you should feel comfortable and look good, too! We're Running Chics… just like you. No matter how far or fast you go, count on Running Chics to be with you stride for stride. Because life is a race, and you deserve to be comfortable.

I love the wide variety of clothes and accessories you can find at Running Chics. They have something to fit every woman's personality and style! Here are a few pieces I really dig. 


Casual wear*Winter wear*Performance wear

What I reviewed:

I received the Next Level Hoody in plum. What a great piece! It's super comfy and soft; great for all day outdoor fun. One of the cool aspect of this piece (and all their pieces) is the customization. This piece came in 6 different colors. I choose a fun fall plum for my hoody. You can also pick the logo you want printed on their pieces. I counted 37 different logos to pick from. Hiking, running, swimming, soccer, teaching, softball and many others....they have you covered! The only negative I have found is the top of Hiking Chics logo has started to come off after the first use. If the logo durability could be strengthened then  this hoody would be perfect! :)

I also got a cute little tote in my package and you can too! Just sign up and become part of the Running Chics Community and they will ship one to you as a thank you. :)

The treats Bella reviewed:
Bella got a fun treat box in the mail from Be Pawsitive. I really think she is starting to understand when she gets goodies to review! :) Bella really enjoyed these treats she received. The flavor of the month was Pizza Party! They were a little big for her to chew on her own, so I broke it into a few pieces and she was fine. While she loved the taste, I loved knowing getting these treats in the mail means a shelter dog gets some yummy treats as well. You can feel good knowing treating your pup is treating a pup in need.

Yours Clothing {Review}


About Yours:
Yours Clothing believe all women should look fabulous, regardless of their dress size. With specialist cutting for fuller figures and available in sizes 14 - 32, anyone can rock the latest trends and look simply divine. Fashion doesn't end at a size 14, and we're the proof!


Lingerie * Clothing * Nightwear * Accessories * Footwear

What I reviewed:

I have to say...I LOVE this company. They have so many cute and stylish outfits for women with some curves. It was so much fun to look through all this online stores has to offer. Yours is a company based in the UK so I had never heard of the brand before. Well now I do and I want to share my experience with you. 
First I really give the online store props for being so easy to navigate. Everything is in a category which is then broken down into more categories. This means if you are looking for something specific (work dress, size 14, in Cream) you will find it. Another wonderful aspect is a lot of pieces have a clip you can watch that shows that piece on the walkway. You can really get a sense for how the piece will move and look on a body. 

After searching through all the many options I had to pick the Black And White Printed Skater Dress With Colbat Belt! Let me tell you...I LOVE it. The size dress ran a little big and so did the belt but I guess it's better than being too tight. I will probably go a size down next time I get something from Yours. The feel of the fabric is soft and very comfortable. It is a mix of Viscose and Elastane. The price is a little on the high side at $51. However, it's a piece that can become a staple for any wardrobe. Wear it with another belt, a denim jacket, a large statement necklace....it's very versatile! 
Overall the dress is wonderful. I feel classy and effortlessly stylish.
