Chicken Soup for the Soul: From Lemons to Lemonade Book Review!

No comments:

Hey everyone! You may remember I've reviewed some Chicken Soup books in the past. One of their latest is "From Lemons to Lemonade." This edition has 101 positive, practical, and powerful stories about making the best of a bad situation.

I was also sent a cool water bottle that you can infuse lemons on the bottoms of it. It's BPA, toxin, and EA free. I love lemon water, seriously I buy Costco-sized bottles of lemon juice to mix with my water because sometimes you need a little kick, so I will definitely be putting this bottle to good use.

The book was really great too. Very inspiring. There was such a variety of different stories from people that go from nothing to something. For instance, one talked about going from being nothing to a successful lawyer. Another was a girl dealing with alcohol abuse and how she overcame it. There's definitely a wide array of stories but it's because there's one everyone can relate to and enjoy.

Overall, I was really impressed with this edition of Chicken Soup for the Soul and if you're into these books or need something inspiring or to life up your spirits, definitely check it out!

Buy It! Head on over to your local bookstore or head on over to Chicken Soup's website where you can submit your story or browse the other books they have.

Uncorked Ventures Review!

No comments:

Hey everyone! Being a 20 something, I'm a fan of drinking on occasion and I do enjoy wine. Which is why I was very excited to review Uncorked Ventures. Uncorked Ventures is a wine club that sends you a selection of wines a month. You can choose from different packages and receive as many as three bottles a month. 

The two bottles I received are: 
- Vin Blancs
- Sola Chardonnay

I enjoy white wine more than red wine, so they sent me two bottles of white which were delicious. Typically though it is one bottle of red and one bottle of white.

The chardonnay was nice and dry with some subtle notes of floral and apple. It wasn't too dry either, I seesaw with chardonnay because I don't like super dry wines. This one was nice and crisp.

The Vin Blanc was my favorite though. It is a blend of Viognier, Rousanne, and Grenache Blanc. It wasn't sweet but was sweeter than the chardonnay. The bottle says it has floral notes of honeysuckle and citrus blossom with some nectarine and peach. I didn't taste all of those flavors but it did taste very good.

I'm terrible at describing wine tastes just because I am not really educated in that aspect. But if you're a fan of more flavorful wine I recommend the Vin Blanc but if you enjoy Chardonnay then rock that one.

As for Uncorked Ventures, they're a great wine club. They're a different kind of wine club. First, they're a family owned and operated startup based just outside of San Francisco. Secondly, instead of buying wine through middle men and distributors, they spend time in wine country getting to know winemakers, vineyard owners, farmers and others directly involved in the creation of what's in your glass.

Overall, I was really impressed with the wine, they were delicious. Definitely check out Uncorked Ventures, you won't be disappointed!

Buy It! Head on over to Uncorked Venture's website and sign up for a club!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Skintimate Review! #crowdtapper

No comments:

I don't know about you guys but it still has been pretty hot here in Southern California. Still rocking the shorts so I gotta keep my legs smooth and happy. So I was super pumped when Crowdtap let me review Skintimate's new Mandarin Burst shave gel!

This was awesome. Not only did it leave your skin smelling wonderful and refreshed, but it didn't irritate my skin either. It moisturizes your skin and leaves it hydrated and nourished. 

A little bit goes a long way, all your need is a dollop-size of the gel and it turns into lather that you can just swipe all over your leg. It's awesome and the bottle lasts a long time. I've actually used Skintimate before and once lasted nearly a year. Of course I don't shave my legs that often, maybe once or twice a week because I'm blonde and am gifted with blonde leg hair. 

I have shaved my legs with soap before when I run out of Skintimate and it just isn't the same. It's not as smooth and silky. With Skintimate I just love rubbing my legs together, they're so soft and feel awesome. 

Overall, I really loved Skintimate's new Mandarin Orange. They're great and the scents they have just leave your legs feeling great. Definitely check them out, you won't be disappointed!
