TMart Luggage Scale Review!

No comments:

I love traveling, seriously every time I save some money or even when I don't have money saved but have a credit card I'll go on a travel adventure. I've considered myself to be a sort of professional packer. I am a girl and do sometimes tend to overpack but I have gotten way better. Though one thing that can be frustrating especially for those long trips are weight limits. Fortunately, Tmart is here to help you out with their awesome selection of luggage scales.

Tmart is a great website that has a wide variety of gadgets from cameras to kitchen scales. They're all reasonably priced, too. I chose one of their luggage scales because I knew I would get a lot of use out of it.

I chose their hand held portable digital luggage scale because it was one of the better reviewed ones and looked very simple to use. One little nit-picky complaint is that this doesn't come with the battery you have to buy it and it is one of those nickel-sized round batteries. It actually took me a bit to get because apparently all of the CVS's near me had a weird battery shortage. But once I found the battery the scale worked great!

I had a similar luggage scale before and is very easy to use. You just clip it around the top handle of your luggage, press the "on" button which is the only button, and hold it up off of the ground. One thing you do need though is some muscle especially if your luggage is 50 pounds because you have to hold it in the air and you have to keep it steady. The scale weighs up to 40kg which averages to roughly 88 pounds. It is a simple one button operation and has an LCD digital display with a low power saving energy option.

I also liked how compact it is, you can actually pack it with you so when you're on your trip accumulating souvenirs you can actually weigh it again before you go home to make sure you didn't buy too much.

Overall, I really did like this scale, it works really well and is so simple anyone can use it. Plus it is less than $20 so it is a steal. Definitely check it out and Tmart's huge selection of items. Be careful though you may be browsing for a few hours because there is just so much stuff!

Juice It Up! Review and Giveaway!


I love juice, it is true, I do. Sorry, there is no fancy way to introduce this review. If I could afford a juicer or a fancier blender to make some smoothies or juices I definitely would. Until then, I will hit up great establishments like Juice It Up! to get my fix.

Juice It Up! is a popular west coast raw juice and smoothie place that has a great variety of healthy, nutritious drinks and even bowls (acai bowls!) to choose from. One of their more popular selections are their seven functional raw juices like the Energizer, Detoxifier, and Rejuvenator to name a few.

I chose the Energizer to try out. This juice contains red grapes, pineapple, spinach, apple, cucumber, and ginger. Wholesome energy from grapes, spinach, and pineapple boosts this blend with Vitamin B.

I liked this juice. One complaint I have to say is that it was room temperature. I rarely have juices but I'm pretty sure they are usually cooler. I was kind of bummed about that. Other than that though I did enjoy this juice. I drank this in between work and going out so it was a nice reawakening drink. I felt it did boost my energy a bit, too, usually though I notice whenever I have healthy food it kind of wakes everything up again. It also wasn't too sweet, like smoothie sweet, but sweet enough so that the pineapples and apples overpowered the spinach and cucumber veggie taste.

Overall, I did enjoy Juice It Up! and they have a huge variety of juices to choose from so I definitely will be going back. Pro tip though, if you have a gift card they actually do not work at the school campus locations of Juice it Up! I actually tried two of them. Fortunately though, the location in Santa Clarita is right where I twist balloons so after a balloon twist shift I hit them up and it worked out perfectly. Definitely check them out if you live near one because you won't be disappointed!

Buy It! Head on over to Juice It Up!'s website and see where there's one near you!

Win It! THREE winners will receive ONE free gift card for ONE small juice!

Canyon Bakehouse Review and Giveaway!


Gluten allergies are kind of becoming a crazy epidemic as of late. I know there are some people that exaggerate the truth with their allergies but I do know a few friends that actually have developed celiac disease and other allergies towards gluten. Fortunately, because of these outbreaks many more gluten free food items have become available and are becoming more and more delicious. One brand, for example, is Canyon Bakehouse. Canyon Bakehouse sells a variety of delicious gluten-free bread and baked goods and they taste incredible.

The products I received are:
- 7-Grain Bread
- Cinnamon Raisin Bread
- Rosemary and Thyme Focaccia Bread
- Hamburger Buns

These were all amazing. I think my favorite was the focaccia just because it was a great and special treat. I never ever really buy focaccia and it is so delicious. I would just rip off a piece and snack on it in between meals. It also worked well to dip into some hummus, but I did mostly eat it solo because it was so flavorful. It is also made from great ingredients like extra virgin olive oil. Each serving has 2 grams of protein and 2 grams of fiber. One slice is 130 calories which isn't bad for bread. Just make sure you cut it and walk away because I would just bring the bag with me, break off pieces whenever I was hungry, and ended up eating more than I should. It was just too good!

The first item I actually tried was the hamburger buns. I came home around dinnertime and this box was waiting for me to be opened, so it was a sign that it was a veggie burger night. The buns were great because they didn't break apart or anything. They were nice and thick. They are made with 100% whole grains, contain 4 grams of fiber, and 4 grams of protein, so it is a fairly healthy bun for you, too!

The loaves of bread were delicious, too. I love the cinnamon raisin one because it was perfect for breakfast. Just add some jam or pumpkin butter and boom, deliciousness! I also would munch on a slice jam-free as a quick, on the run snack. It wasn't stingy with the raisins either which I was very pleased about. They're made with whole grains, agave syrup, contains 2 grams of fiber and 2 grams of protein, so it is not only delicious but nutritious for you too.

Lastly, the 7-Grain load which also was great. This loaf is a great go-to bread for anything from sandwiches to toast to basically anything. It is loaded with whole grains and has a touch of sweetness. It also contains 2 grams of fiber and 2 grams of protein. I personally enjoyed dipping it into my tomato soup, definitely way better than white bread.

Overall, I really enjoyed Canyon Bakehouse and their crazy awesome bread. It didn't taste gluten-free, or at least how you would expect gluten-free food to taste, it tasted like delicious, normal bread. I also liked how they all held together and didn't break apart or anything. Seriously, it all was awesome. Definitely check them out and their variety of baked goods, you won't be disappointed!

Alpine Made Soap Review and Giveaway!


I'm not going to lie to you to you guys, I am not a huge fan of showering. Remember when you were a little kid and you went through that phase where you hated bathing? I really don't think I ever grew out of that. But, you know, it has to be done for like, sanitary and hygiene purposes. But, I am not as terribly frustrated with it as 8 year old Kelly was, I do enjoy it sometimes. There are some things that do make me look forward to a shower though: after a hardcore workout at the gym, before going out at night, and when I get some new, awesome bath products like soap or shampoo. That is why I was super excited to try out Alpine Made Raw Organic Soap. I may hate to get into a shower but I do loooove coming out after one smelling and feeling great!

Alpine Made Soap is made with goat milk which is excellent for your skin. Goat milk is great for all types of skin and doesn't irritate at all. Goat milk has a variety of great benefits. For instance, it helps aid in skin cell repair. Goat milk contains alpha hydro acids that strip away dead skin and minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles. They are also organic so they are chemical free which makes the soap work and feel better on your skin. I personally love all natural soaps like this because they just feel great and smell amazing.

I was sent the following bars:

- Lovely Lady Bar
- Orange Tea Tree Bar
- An additional Orange Tea Tree Bar to giveaway!

The Lovely Lady Bar smells wonderful and works just as great. It is a bergamot and lavender essential oil blend and makes your skin smell fantastic. I love lavender and smelling like it after a shower is the best. The Orange Tea Tree bar is just as great. It contains organic orange essential oils which leave your skin feeling clean and invigorated. It also contains white tea tree essential oil which has natural antiseptic properties that add a natural line of defense against unwanted microbes.

I loved both of these bars, they worked so well and last quite a long time, too. Typically in the past, whenever I use natural soap they kind of melt away but these did not. I do have a little trick though to keep soap lasting. You simply cut off a little of each bar each time you want to use it. You don't want to use the whole bar, leave it in the shower, and have it get all mushy, right? It works plus, you can keep the other unused bar somewhere like a sock drawer or something in the mean time to make it smell nice and great in there.

Overall, I was very happy with Alpine Made soap. Both bars made my skin feel nice and refreshed. They didn't irritate or dry out my skin at all. It also left my skin smelling amazing. Definitely check them out, you won't be disappointed!
