Hey everyone! My next review is for got2b POWDER'ful which is an awesome Volumizing powder for your hair! I received the opportunity to review this thanks to bzzAgents.
The innovative volumizing styling powder instantly takes hair to new heights, delivering pronounced volume, radical root lift, amazing texture and flexible control. All in just 10 seconds! Formulated with virtually weightless micro-particles, this salon-quality powder texturizes the surface of your hair, creating maximum volume at your roots. There’s no powdery residue or stiffness, just the freedom to create modern, edgy ‘dos with an undeniable wow factor. Apply anytime, anywhere for an immediate transformation.
It's really easy to use, all you do is shake some onto your palm, rub your palms together, the powder will vanish but you'll still feel it on your hands then you massage it into your scalp/roots and boom extra volume!
I have really fine, flat hair. So this is awesome for me and it really does work. I like that even when you put it in your hair you still don't see it. Sometimes I worry with powders and such that you might notice them in your hair and they'll look like dandruff or something. But this is invisible on your palms and stays invisible in your hair.
Super simple, super easy to use, and you definitely do see a difference as soon as you do it. It takes a matter of seconds and is pretty awesome! Definitely check it out if you need a boost and have fine hair like me, you won't be disappointed!
Buy It! Head on over to Got2b's website and see where they sell it near you!
Hey everyone! My next review is for Boombotix. Boombotix is a great company that sells a variety of awesome portably speakers. They have wireless and wired ones but even the wired ones are so easy to travel and move around with.
I was sent their Boombot 1 wired speakers in LazE Blue to review.
The speakers comes with a charging cable, a normal Aux cable to plug into the earphone jack and a cool retractable aux cable. I really love the retractable one because I get tangled with cable all the time but this makes everything so clean and nice.
I tried this speakers out on my computer and you could hear quite a bit of static I am not entirely sure why because it says it's compatible with computers and I have other speakers I use for this computer and they don't have static. But then I tried these on with my phone and my iPod and it was a much, much clearer sound. So I definitely recommend them for portable speakers like when you're going to the beach and just have your phone or are camping and want to connect your iPod, they work really well.
It's also cool because it has a clip too so you can walk around, bike ride, or clip it onto your bag away from the sand on the beach. They're also water resistant and literally fit in your palm so they're super easy to carry around with you. Plus they're pretty cute.
Really easy to charge too, you just plug it into your computer and you'll see the star blink green on his forehead. Charging takes about an hour and the sound lasts for around six hours. Another really awesome thing is that they have a 1 year warranty so if anything happens in a year you can return it no questions asked.
Overall, while I was a little bummed it acted odd with my computer I do think they make great portable speakers. I plan on keeping it in my car so whenever I go on day trips I can have a nice speaker to play some tunes off my ipod. Definitely check them out!
Buy It! Head on over to Boombotix's website and browse their selection because they have a bunch of cute little guys to choose from.

Hey everyone! My next review is for Style Lately. Style Lately is a great website that has a variety of apparel and accessories that really are lovely but also super affordable!
I received their Evo Chain Bracelet.
I really like this bracelet, I actually chose this because I'm not a huge bracelet wear-er I just can't find one that I like or one that goes with everyday outfits but this one is perfect.
There's four chains, two are the same small almost square little chains that are dark gunmetal grey, there's a bigger gold chain, and then a kind of swirly gunmetal one. It has a super easy matte gold lobster clasp that you can clasp on yourself. That's what I'm always worried about with bracelets because I always have trouble clasping them or putting them on/taking them off by myself but this one is super easy.
Also it is pretty reasonably priced at only $13. That's what is great about Style Lately, they have the cutest jewelry pieces and awesome apparel but it's not outrageously overpriced. It's like H&M prices but made with better quality.
Every day they have special events too where select clothes and accessories go on sale with a certain percentage off. For instance right now they have some awesome acid wash shorts that are 31% off originally $26 now they're only $18!
Overall, I was really impressed with the bracelet and Style Lately, the quality is great and I've already gotten a few compliments with it. Definitely check them out, you won't be disappointed!

Hey everyone! My next review and giveaway is for So Delicious. You may remember that I have done a review for them in the past and you can check it out here.
I was sent a few coupons and I chose these to review:
Vanilla Almond Plus Milk
Unsweetened Coconut Milk
I really like trying different milks that aren't milk, if that makes sense. Just because there are so many other healthier options and alternatives to milk out there that taste better than regular milk.
I really love the Unsweetened Coconut Milk because it doesn't have a huge amount of flavor, it's similar to skim milk, and it is really great in coffee, cereal, and smoothies. Coconuts are actually quite healthy for you. As So Delicious's website says:"Coconut consuming cultures around the world have lower incidence of heart disease than Americans. Lauric acid exists abundantly in coconut and plays a fundamental role in building our body’s immune system. Once in our system it transforms into an antibacterial and antiviral substance called "monolaurin" which destroys viruses and diseases."
I really like using the unsweetened coconut milk for cereal in the morning, especially granola-y cereals. It kind of compliments the flavor super well.
While I like that one for cereal I really enjoy the Almond Plus for smoothies just because it is a great boost of protein. Plus the vanilla flavor gives it a nice sweet flavor. As their website says: "Almond Plus™ 5X almond milk delivers the full spectrum of 9 essential amino acids that your body needs, and five times the protein of most other almond milks: that's 5 grams of get up and go, carpe diem in every 8 oz glass of almond milk. And it's 100% soy and dairy-free." I wish it game in a bigger carton like the other one, but a little goes a long way with smoothies.
Overall, I definitely wasn't disappointed. But then again, I really never am with So Delicious. Definitely check them out, especially during Christmastime because they have some delicious dairy-free egg nog and mint chocolate milk.
Win It! TWO winners will receive a coupon for a Soy Delicious product of their choice!

Hey everyone! My next review and giveaway is for Lucky Leaf. Lucky Leaf is a great company that sells a variety of delicious pie fillings. I have reviewed for them in the past and you can check them out here.
I was sent an awesome kit from Lucky Leaf with three recipes including:
Cherry Pie Filling
Apple Pie Filling
Blueberry Pie Filling
A retro kitchen timer
First off, I love the timer, especially because it's magnetic so I just stick it onto the fridge and I won't ever lose it. Plus it's easy to use just twist it to the time you need and boom.
One of the recipes was Cherry Coconut Squares and that one sounded so delicious and also pretty easy so I decided to make them.
⅓ cup sugar
¼ cup butter
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour, sifted
¼ teaspoon salt
18-ounce can flaked coconut
121-ounce can LUCKY LEAF® Regular or Premium Cherry Pie Filling
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Cream sugar and butter. Sift flour and salt together and then add to creamed mixture. Mix in coconut.
Pack 1/2 of this mixture into a greased 9-inch square pan. Spread LUCKY LEAF Cherry Pie Filling on top. Put remaining crumb mixture on top of pie filling. Pat down firmly Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. When cool, cut into 16-squares.
Like I said it was really easy, though I couldn't really make them into perfect squares, they still were delicious!
So easy to make and so delicious. The cherries give it a nice tart taste but the coconut compliments it with it's sweetness, it was like a tropical kind of cobbler. Definitely try making it, it's different but so simple and delicious! Literally probably the only thing you have to buy is the cherry pie filling (from Lucky Leaf of course) and the coconut flakes because the rest is just ingredients you usually have at home. One thing is it said only 30 minutes but I had it in the oven for around 45 minutes. Basically once you see the top brown is a good time to take them out.
That's not all, Lucky Leaf is also having an awesome Pinterest giveaway! Here's all the details!:
Pinterest giveaway starts May 1st and lasts til the 15th so check it out and find out more info here.
