The “Neater Feeder” (For Cats) Review
If you have a cat, or cats that just love to make a mess while drinking at the water bowl, you are going to be VERY interested in the Neater Feeder!
One day (after cleaning up yet another mess that my cats made while drinking their water), I got serious about finding a much needed solution. I searched the Internet frantically for anything that would solve the problem of water getting splashed all over the place when my cats had a drink. I looked for mats, different bowl designs, and just about everything in between. The water that my cats slashed all over was causing the wooden rack that I had the food bowls on, to be utterly destroyed. I needed a solution, and fast!
My search ended when I came across the “Neater Feeder.” …I just knew it “could” potentially be the solution to all my “messy cat” problems.
Mess Proof Pet Bowls
My Findings: The Neater Feeders For Cats is made of plastic, and has a design that traps any spilled food or water in a tray below the feeding bowls so there is absolutely no mess on the floor when your cat is done eating. It also has a nice high back splash surrounding the bowls, so as the cat’s tongue flicks, the water (or milk) will hit the back splash, and be channeled down into the bottom pan. When I setup the Neater Feeder, my cats took to it right away (not much gets between them and their food. *LOL*). The Neater Feeder is not much bigger than the space required for two bowls, and as luck would have it, it fit perfectly in the spot that I use to feed my cats. The Neater Feeder has one bowl that is a little deeper than the other, and that is so your cat can drink more water and eat less food.
The Neater Feeder lives up to it’s name, it was a LOT “Neater.” My messy cat problems were completely solved with this product. Happy day!! What a great invention it is, and one that I could not be without. ..The only thing that I would caution, is that if you have more than one cat, you will need to skip the CAT version in lieu of one of the larger versions (SMALL or MEDIUM). The Neater Feeder (CAT) is perfect for one cat, but for my four cats, it could hardly keep up. I had to fill it more often that I had hoped.
“The Neater Feeder for cats takes the mess out of meal time with its spill-proof, kick-proof design. Spilled water drains into the lower reservoir, while food is contained on top.”
Food Bowl Capacity: 1 cup
Water Bowl Capacity: 1.5 cups
Pet Weight Range: All l
Pet Shoulder Height: Up to 6 Inches
Feeding Height (at bowl rim): 3 inches
Neater Feeder Dimensions: 14L x 9W x 6H
About Neater Feeder:
The Neater Feeder is designed with protective walls to contain splashes and spills from an inadvertent kick or an excited pet. This revolutionary system holds spilled food in an upper reservoir while spilled water flows down a gentle slope through a patent-pending filtering system.
The spilled water drains into a lower reservoir that can safely contain more than an entire bowl of spilled water, keeping it off the floor until you are ready to dispose of it. Keeping the spilled food in the upper reservoir, off the floor, not only saves you work, but also keeps it clean for reuse.
I would like thank Neater Feeder for giving me the opportunity to review their Cat Neater Feeder.

Tints Of Nature Review:
Sulfate-Free Shampoo & Conditioner
I’m always looking for organic shampoos and conditioners that are as close to nature as possible, and free of toxic chemicals. Tints of Nature has just that, and they sent me their “sulfate-free” shampoo & conditioner to try out.
Tints of Nature Better for Hair, Better for You
My Findings: Tints of Nature makes a wonderful “sulfate-free” shampoo & conditioner that have none of the harsh chemicals that can cause your scalp to become irritated like some other shampoos and conditioners on the market. Tints of Nature’s conditioner is formulated with Irish seaweed extract, and a plant-derived softening agent to leave your hair feeling nice and soft, and it does! Their shampoo is 100% sulfate free, ammonia free, and has naturally based lathering agents, vitamin B15, and plant amino acids in it. I can tell you that both the shampoo and conditioner are great for color treated hair. They will not fade your hair color like other shampoo’s and conditioners might. My color stayed vibrant wash after wash. The shampoo and conditioner work very well together, and they are great hair products. These hair stylists that formulated these products did a fantastic job!

Made From Earth Products:
Tea + Protein Herbal Shampoo
Peppermint Herbal Conditioner
Vitamin E + Citrus Shower Gel
Organic Aloe & Jojoba Creme Therapy
Olive Night Creme
Grapefruit Glycolic Wash
Spearmint Lip Balm
I love reviewing products from companies who use organic, chemical free ingredients in their products! Made From Earth’s products are EXACTLY that, and they have some wonderful products that smell absolutely amazing, and are oh so good for you. Read on and find out more about some of the amazing products I just reviewed from Made From Earth!
Organic, Holistic and Chemical Free | Made from Earth
Tea + Protein Herbal Shampoo: This Protein infused volumizing organic shampoo smells wonderful and does exactly what it says it does. For anyone who has dry hair and has trouble getting that added moisturizer into their hair this is the shampoo for you. This shampoo has organic plant-based ingredients to emulsify the scalp and hair without the added dryness of other shampoos that leave your scalp itchy and dry afterwards.
Peppermint Herbal Conditioner: I suffer from hair loss, and I’m always looking for a conditioner that will stimulate my scalp for added hair growth. This is exactly what the Peppermint Herbal Conditioner does. You can really feel the peppermint working, and it smells just wonderful. I should mention that the smell of peppermint also gives you and energy kick!
Vitamin E + Citrus Shower Gel: Who doesn’t like the smell of citrus fruits, lemons and oranges with the added benefits of Vitamin E and Pro-Vitamin B5 to neutralize sun and environmental damage. I love the smell of this shower gel, and I love how I feel energized after my morning shower when I uses the Vitamin E + Citrus Shower Gel.
Organic Aloe & Jojoba Creme Therapy: I loved this hand lotion, I just wish though they would have added an emulsifier to their hand lotion to make it thicker. It was a little too runny for my taste.
Olive Night Creme: Just like the Italians do, they put pure olive oil on the skin to keep them looking youthful. That is what Made From Earth’s Olive Night Creme does. I love the moisture in this cream and I love how it adds oil back to my skin to keep my skin nice and healthy looking.
Grapefruit Glycolic Wash: One of my favorite smells is grapefruit, and having the smell of grapefruit in a face wash is a bonus. I especially like the beads in this face wash, they really cleaned my skin nice and clean.
Spearmint Lip Balm: I LOVE this lip balm! It coats my lips and keeps my lip nice moist all day long. Great stuff!
About Made From Earth:
We were surprised at how many synthetic chemicals are being used in skin care products today, most of which are added as a preservative. For example, organic ingredients are mixed with potentially toxic chemicals for preservation (in the form of a preservative). A study, reported in the Journal of Applied Toxicology, found parabens to be the most common cosmetic preservative present in significant amounts in 18 out of 20 breast cancer tumors. Cosmetic chemicals accumulate in the body’s fatty tissues, where they can remain for years and damage your cells. Made from Earth uses a natural preservative system to preserve our precious organic ingredients – and we found our natural preservatives are great for your skin, like Jojoba and Vitamin E.
We limit our line of products to just the best the organic market can offer in face treatments, body lotions, hair, bath and lip balms. It has been our honor to work with the best eco-friendly, environmentally conscious and recognized people in the health and beauty industry. Our company is based on the same healthy values from the day we started: excellent customer service for high quality and healthy ingredients. It is our objective to continue to grow by providing exciting new formulas and treatments to serve our healthy customers.
How are Products Chosen for Made From Earth?
We only select the highest potency organic ingredients for our healthy products. All our ingredients / plants are from certified organic farms. There are no potentially toxic ingredients in our products. There is no diluting or watering down of our potent organic plant ingredients. We are 100% farmed and sourced in the USA.

Beanfields Bean & Rice Chips
Nacho Bean & Rice Chips
Naturally Unsalted Chips
Sea Salt Chips
Sea Salt & Pepper Chips
Pico de Gallo Chips
As many of you know from from reading my blog, and the past reviews I have done, I’m a huge believer in eating GMO free foods. Beanfields snacks offers a yummy selection of chips that are GMO Free, Corn Free, and Gluten Free, Cholesterol-Free, Trans Fat-Free, and Preservative-Free. Beanfields sent me their whole line of delicious chips to try, and I have to say I was very much impressed by them. Read on and find out what flavor was best!
Snack Like A Grown-Up, Love It Like A Kid
Nacho Bean & Rice Chips
My Findings: These snacks are amazing and are much better than the name brand nacho chips out there. The Nacho Bean & Rice Chips do not have the harsh taste that some of the other name brand nacho chips have, and they have a wonderful light taste to them. My fiancé and I could not stop eating these, and we use to (way back in time) eat the name brand nacho chips and would always feel sick afterwards. Now, we can enjoy a healthier tasting nacho chip without all the added preservatives and chemicals.
Naturally Unsalted Chips
My Findings: Unfortunately I did not enjoy these chips. They did not have any flavor to them. I would have loved if they would have put a hint of flavor on the Naturally Unsalted Chips, and I think they would have tasted far better. However if you are looking to cut down on your sodium then these might be the chips for you. =-)
Sea Salt Chips
My Findings: I’m a huge fan of chips that have sea salt on them and Beanfields “Sea Salt Chips” delivered. Where can you get a good source of fiber with the added bonus of sea salt? Beanfields “Sea Salt Chips” is where.
Sea Salt & Pepper Chips
My Findings: I’m not a huge fan of chips that have pepper on them, but I really rather enjoyed Beanfields “Sea Salt & Pepper Chips.” The flavor combination went really well together and these chips also have a great source of fiber and are GMO free and corn free.
Pico de Gallo Chips
My Findings: Mexican lovers you are gonna love these chips, I guarantee it. Beanfields “Pico de Gallo Chips” have a nice zesty flavor to them, and can be eaten by themselves or you can enhance the flavor even more with your favorite organic salsa. I really enjoyed these chips, and will most defiantly try them again.
We take wholesome and nutritious beans and blend them with long grain rice to create delicious snacks that are loaded with fiber and protein. In fact Beanfields Bean & Rice chips contain double the fiber and protein of most corn tortilla or potato chips.
One taste and you will rejoice knowing you have found a delicious alternative to the empty calorie snacks that fill the snack aisle. Beanfields Snacks are farmed and made in the USA. They are gluten-free, cholesterol-free, trans fat-free, preservative-free and free of every one of the FDA’s eight most common ingredients that trigger food allergies.
Beanfields is a family owned company and values shape everything we do. We use “kinder prosperity” to express our commitment to help update food and business practices. A percentage of our profits are committed to profit-sharing with employees and stakeholders, and contributed to non-profit efforts to help farmers grow healthier, more sustainable crops.
Above all we want to bring you better snacking choices, we believe that great taste and good nutrition can and should coexist. We hope you enjoy our crispylicious snacks. Thank you for helping to make the world a healthier place to crunch!
How are Products Chosen for Beanfields?
4 Grams of Complete Protein and Fiber
Beanfields chips give you important nutrition your body needs. A one-ounce serving has 4 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber—twice as much as most other tortilla chips, corn chips, or potato chips. Beanfields are tasty snacks you can feel good about giving your family!
All of our Crispylicious Corn Free Bean & Rice Tortilla Chips are verified to be free of any genetically-modified organisms (non-GMO) and have received the prestigious Non-GMO Verification awarded by the Non-GMO Project!

Barlean’s Organic Oils Review:
Mango-Peach Omega Swirl Fish Oil
Strawberry-Banana Omega Swirl Flax Oil
Chocolate-Raspberry (The Essential Woman Omega Supplement)
For anyone looking for a better way to get healthy oils into their diets in the most delicious way, Barlean’s Organic Oils offers a wonderful selection of Organic flavored Fish Oil, Flax Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Borage Oil, and many more. Barlean’s sent me three flavored Organic oils to try. I was sent their Mango-Peach Omega Swirl Fish Oil, Strawberry-Banana Omega Swirl Flax Oil, and Chocolate-Raspberry (The Essential Woman Omega Supplement) for review. Read on to find out more!
Barlean’s- World’s Freshest – Best Tasting
Mango-Peach Omega Swirl Fish Oil
My Findings: What a wonderful combination of flavors! For fish oil, I didn’t think anyone could make it palatable, but I really enjoyed how the mango and peach tasted in this supplement. I also did not find this supplement overly sweet, or over powering in any way. The flavor of the fish oil is masked very well, and you really can not taste the fish oil in this supplement. Omega Swirl Fish Oil is sweetened with Xylitol, and all of the ingredients in it or Organic.
Strawberry-Banana Omega Swirl Flax Oil
My Findings: Firstly, I just love anything that tastes of Banana and Strawberry. This product was no different. It had a wonderful sweet taste of Banana and Strawberry. I also liked that this product was not too sweet, though I found it fairly sweet. I also could not taste any of the flax oil, and that is bonus, as I really do not like the taste of flax oil.
Chocolate-Raspberry The Essential Woman Omega Supplement
My Findings: Attention chocolate lovers out there, you will fall in love with Barlean’s Essential Woman Omega Swirl Supplement! I didn’t just like this, I LOVED IT! ..I’m in love with this product, and I could not get enough of it. Who could? The Chocolate and Raspberry is such a delicious combination! When I had a sweet craving, I just took a spoonful of Essential Woman Omega Swirl Supplement, and it satisfied my craving 100%. Essential Women Omega Swirl is sweetened with Xylitol, and it is made with Organic Evening Primrose Oil and Organic Flaxseed Oil. This stuff was insanely good. I’m sure it would be illegal if it weren’t soooooo good for you!

Cortex Solo450 Giraffe Flat Iron Review
Are you looking for a new flat iron, a very stylish designer flat iron at that? Flat Iron Experts at flatironexperts.com have an absolutely HUGE selection of flat irons that come in just about every color and style you can imagine. Flat Iron Experts sent me their latest flat iron called the “Cortex Solo450 Giraffe Flat Iron.” Read on for my findings on the “Cortex Solo450 Giraffe Flat Iron” below.
The Best Professional Flat Irons!
My Findings: I have used several flat irons in the past. My very first iron was the Chi, and it was recommended to me after I walked into a few hair salons and asked them which was best. The Chi was a fantastic flat iron for the time. I used it a lot over the years. As good as the Chi was for it’s time, after trying out the Cortex Solo450 Giraffe Flat Iron, I quickly realized that clearly things in the flat iron market have evolved greatly. From the very first use I just fell in love with this iron. The results were nothing short of amazing, almost too good to be true. Firstly, the iron was not roasting my hair like my old Chi did, and secondly, it made my hair smooth, and shiny. I had to know why this iron was doing such a good job on my hair. It turns out that the temperature setting I used was just right for my hair. The Cortex Solo450 has temperature settings, so as I used the iron at 350C my hair did not smoke or feel hot to the touch at all. My old Chi has one setting, and I guess that setting was “Too Hot.” From what I learned afterwards, the Cortex Solo450 also has far-infrared technology that us used to deliver constant heat distribution over the plates, very cool! The Cortex Solo450 also has solid titanium plates. whereas the older flat irons like my Chi used ceramic plates. Who knows why, but the results were FAR better with the solid titanium plates! Shinny, smooth feeling hair. Who can argue with that? Two thumbs up for the “Cortex Solo450 Giraffe Flat Iron.”
About Flat Iron Experts:
Flat Iron Experts is an Online Beauty Shop specializing in selling and reviewing the best flat irons and the best hair straighteners in the beauty industry today. Deciding on what is the best flat iron for your hair isn’t easy. We understand that many of you are overwhelmed by the number of choices of top rated and popular flat irons. Our goal at Flat Iron Experts is to assist you on finding the best flat iron for you.

Beanitos: Black Bean, Pinto Bean, Chipotle BBQ and Cheddar Cheese Chips Review
I love having a bowl of popcorn, or chips when I’m sitting down to play my favorite video game. I, however, do not like snacks that are made from GMO corn, or that have chemically added flavoring and other nasties (like MSG) in them. Enter Beanitos, a GMO corn free, low glycemic bean based chip! Read on to see how I liked them.
For Serious Snackers!
Beanitos Black Bean Chips
My Findings: I was not a huge fan of the Beanitos Black Bean chips. For my tastes (and yours might be different), I wish there would have been a little more flavor and not so much salt on them.
Beanitos Pinto Bean and Flax Chips
My Findings: I was surprised how good these snacks tasted. I was expecting the Pinto Bean and Flax chips to be completely bland, but they were not. These chips have a subtle flavor of seasonings that make these chips very tasty.
Beanitos Black Bean Chipotle BBQ Chips
My Findings: These chips have a wonderful smokey flavor to them with a touch of spiciness to give them that nice KICK! I was very surprised by the taste of them, and would defiantly eat these chips again, and again, and again.
Beanitos Cheddar Cheese Chips
My Findings: OMG… These are my favorite of all of the Beanito chips that I tried. My fiance and I literately ate the whole bag in one sitting, that is how good the Beanitos Cheddar Cheese chips are. We NEVER eat the whole bag. Who would have thought a bean chip could taste so good, and have so much flavor to them? If you want to try out Beanitos, you have gotta try Beanitos Cheddar Cheese chips. I’m sure you will love them as much as we did!
Beanitos, The Original Bean Chips were created by serious snackers, for serious snackers (aka For Human Beans) who demand more than empty calories from their snacks. And, since corn is in over 4,000 products at the typical supermarket and has been linked to a host of health issues including obesity, all of our products are Always Corn Free!
You see, we love to snack, but when looking for a low glycemic snack that tasted great, we simply could not find one. So we set out about creating one. Two years later: Beanitos, The Bean Chips were born and launched in January 2010! While we did create a great tasting snack that won’t spike blood sugar, along the way, we were able to make our chips even better for you.
How are Products Chosen for Beanitos?
Beanitos are loaded with non-GMO vegetable fiber (20% of the daily value in just 10 chips, that’s 5 grams!), 4 grams of complete protein and are rich in Essential ALA Omega 3s (600mg in Pinto Bean and Flax) all which are packed into one great tasting serving!
Beanitos are always free of corn, wheat, soy, potato, trans fat, cholesterol and are verified non-GMO, gluten free, lab tested and certified low glycemic & kosher!
I would like thank Beanitos for giving me the opportunity to review their Black Bean, Pinto Bean and Flax, Chipotle BBQ and Cheddar Cheese Chips.

1. Shea & Virgin Coconut Enriching Shampoo
2. Shea & Virgin Coconut Enriching Hair Lotion
3. Rooibos & Shea Antioxidant Facial Cleanser
4. Rooibos & Shea Butter Antioxidant Face Cream
5. Rooibos & Shea Antioxidant Facial Toner
6. Cocoa & Shea Butter Lip Balm
I’m very happy to have had a chance to review a few of the products from Alaffia’s beauty product line. All of the products from Alaffia are “Fair Trade” and “Organic.” They also donate some of the proceeds made from the handmade baskets on their website to African causes. Awesome stuff!
In this review, I reviewed the “Shea & Virgin Coconut Enriching Shampoo, Shea & Virgin Coconut Enriching Hair Lotion, Rooibos & Shea Antioxidant Facial Cleanser, Rooibos & Shea Butter Antioxidant Face Cream, Rooibos & Shea Antioxidant Facial Toner and Cocoa & Shea Butter Lip Balm.” The packaging of these products was unmistakably African in style (as you can see), what was inside was remarkable. ..Read on to find out more!
Advancing Gender Equality and Alleviating Poverty through the Fair Trade of Handcrafted Shea Butter.
Shea & Virgin Coconut Enriching Shampoo
My Findings: I love love anything that has coconut in it, especially my shampoo! This shampoo is naturally scented with Lavender Essential Oil & Coconut Fragrance, and it smells just wonderful. The shea butter and coconut coats my hair, and leaves it silky smooth. What a great combination!
Shea & Virgin Coconut Enriching Hair Lotion
My Findings: This is the accompanying conditioner to the shampoo (above) and I’m telling you my hair smelled wonderful after use, and the shine and softness of my hair was remarkable. Alaffia’s shampoo and conditioner works great on their own, but even better when used together. One plus one, equals “three” in this case!
Rooibos & Shea Antioxidant Facial Cleanser
My Findings: This is a great cleanser that helps fight skin-aging, and free radicals as it gently removes makeup, dirt, debris, and other impurities that may accumulating on your face during the day. I also liked that this cleanser went on nice and smooth. You can really feel it cleaning your pores, and it smells nice.
Rooibos & Shea Butter Antioxidant Face Cream
My Findings: I love Alaffia’s face cream I use this face cream every night and I love how its not a thick and heavy when applying to your sking, and that will leave your pores clogged all night. This face cream also smells wonderful, and it has the added coconut and shea butter in it to help keep your skin nice and moisturized.
Rooibos & Shea Antioxidant Facial Toner
My Findings: If you want a nice “pick me up” while refreshing your skin, then you’ll love this face toner. This face toner is formulated to naturally balance your skin’s pH and help maximize hydration. It’s alcohol-free, so don’t worry, it won’t dry your skin out like some other face toners can.
Cocoa & Shea Butter Lip Balm
My Findings: YUM… every time I apply this lip balm to my lips, I feel like I’m eating something that has coco in it, and I’m also adding moisturizer to my lips with coconut oil and shea butter. Love it!
Alaffia was founded in 2003 by Olowo-n’djo Tchala as a means to alleviate poverty and advance gender equality in his native country of Togo, West Africa. The Alaffia organization is a complete fair trade cycle. The women of the Alaffia Shea Butter Cooperative in Sokodé, Togo handcraft raw ingredients using traditional, sustainable methods. These ingredients are then combined into finished skin and hair care products at Alaffia’s Lacey, Washington location. At least 10% of sales from the finished products – Alaffia Sustainable Skin Care, EveryDay Shea and Beautiful Curls – are returned to West Africa to fund community empowerment projects aimed at alleviating poverty, enhancing education, improving gender equality, and reducing the effects of climate change. This relationship between the Cooperative and Lacey, Washington locations makes Alaffia a true fair trade organization, building sustainable communities through the production and sale of affordable, clean and effective products.
How are Products Chosen for Alaffia?
All of the oils and butters for our skin care products that we make in Togo are extracted with traditional methods. We also take the care to only use non-plantation grown coconuts, palm fruit and cacao beans. Plantations have multiple environmental, social and economic consequences, while the small farms we support have been sustainable for centuries.
I would like thank Alaffia for giving me the opportunity to review their Shea & Virgin Coconut Enriching Shampoo, Shea & Virgin Coconut Enriching Hair Lotion, Rooibos & Shea Antioxidant Facial Cleanser, Rooibos & Shea Butter Antioxidant Face Cream, Rooibos & Shea Antioxidant Facial Toner and Cocoa & Shea Butter Lip Balm.

Nomad Travel Sound+Sleep Device Review
I was soooooo happy to have the opportunity to review the Sound+Sleep Nomad Travel sound system! If you are like me, and need a sound device to fall asleep, then you are going to just love the Nomad sleep device. The Sound+Sleep Nomad Travel has six naturally recorded high-definition SoundStories on it, from the sound of the Ocean, to Falling Rain.
Sleep better without a prescription and replenish your body & mind.
My Findings: I’m such a light sleeper that anything and everything wakes me up. I have tried other sound systems, but they never came close to
sounding so crystal clear like the The Sound+Sleep Nomad Travel does. I really like the nice compact size of this sound device. The device does not take up too much room on your night stand, and has a huge speaker on the top for great sound. The best feature that I liked about this sound device, is that the lights turn off automatically so you do not have to worry about annoying lights shining in your eyes and keeping you up. I used to have to put a sock over my old one. *LOL*
My favorite sound (that I use to fall asleep every night) is the waterfall sound. If you have trouble falling asleep, or suffer sleepless nights due to ambient noise in your sleep environment, the Sound+Sleep device from Adaptive Sound Technologies is a great sleep remedy! You will quickly fall in love with it.
About Adaptive Sound Technologies:
Ideal for the bedroom or the office, SOUND+SLEEP is a sophisticated sound machine designed from the ground up for sleeping. It uses Adaptive Sound technology to help produce rich and natural sound environments that do not repeat.
Unlike other “white noise” sound machines, SOUND+SLEEP uses next generation technology to produce naturally recorded high-definition sounds.
SOUND+SLEEP even adjusts for any unwanted or disruptive ambient noise by remixing the sound and adjusting the volume so that all you hear is the sound profile you’ve chosen.with this device.

Read on and find out why I loved Original Sprout Shampoo and Conditioner so much!
Island Bliss Shampoo
My Findings: OMG…. I loved the smell of this shampoo! Island Bliss Shampoo smelled like I was taking a trip to the tropics and all of my worries of the day were gone. This shampoo has the smell of coconut and every other tropical scent you can imagine. You do not need much of this shampoo as the shampoo coats your hair very nicely and leaves it feeling silky smooth.
Luscious Island Conditioner
My Findings: Just like the shampoo, Luscious Island Conditioner smells absolutely amazing. Luscious Island Conditioner feels amazing on my hair too. My hair felt silky soft and had an amazing shine to it when I used this conditioner. I use the conditioner and the shampoo all the time, and cannot get enough of it. I even got some compliments on how nice my hair smelt recently! Yeah, it’s THAT good! =-)
Scrumptious Baby Cream
My Findings: I’ve tried many hand creams before, but none have left my skin so soft and moisturized liked Scrumptious Baby Cream. I mean it, it REALLY works well. I personally love the smell of baby powder, and this cream smells like you just poured some baby powder on your skin. I’m very happy with this cream and I use it in my day to day life regularly. Great stuff!
About Original Sprout:
Inga Tritt founded The Original Little Sprout in 2003 and Original Sprout in 2007. The name Little Sprout was inspired by the birth of her daughter Maya. Inga was born in Germany and grew up in Montecito, California. Her love of nature, art and architecture led to a successful career as a master stylist. Wanting to be a full time mom led her to selling her salons & spas and moving to the country, where she now lives with her family.
Our founder delighted in her newborn daughter’s thick hair. Wanting to use the safest bath products led to her trying natural baby shampoos. To her surprise, all the shampoos wreaked havoc her daughter’s hair and sensitive skin. To remedy the problem Inga created the first of it’s kind, ultra moisturizing natural baby bath & styling products. The benefits of being a master stylist with professional experience & a mother with real life experience culminated into Original Sprout, a globally trusted natural family brand.

Camino Espresso Coffee, Dark chocolate Coffee Beans, Mango & Tropical Juices, Raw Caco Nibs, and Shredded Coconut Review
Camino is a Canadian company that offers a wide selection of organic products from Coffee, and Jiuces, to Chocolate Bars. Camino sent me a nice selection of their products to review. I was sent their (Climbing The Walls) Espresso Coffee, Dark chocolate covered Coffee Beans, Mango & Tropical Juices, Raw Caco Nibs, and Shredded Coconut. I have to say that I was pretty impressed with all the products that I received from Camino, and if you read on you will find out what products I liked the best.
Taste of Change. Taste of Camino!
Raw Cacao Nibs
My Findings: Caco nibs are very healthy for you, especially in their raw form. The only thing with raw caco nibs are that they are little bitter (they have no sweetness to them). I used Camino’s caco nibs in some of my baking that gave it a little chocolate kick with a healthy side. =-)
My Findings: Camino’s Mango juice tasted exactly like you were eating a fresh mango with a hint of passion fruit, that enhanced the flavor of the juice. This juice is also not too sweet like most of the name brand juices (that are full of sugar), and this juice had no sugar added to it.
Espresso Coffee “Climb the walls”
My Findings: Camino’s “Climb The Walls” Espresso coffee smells just amazing. Simply smelling this coffee will have you “Climb The Walls” with energy. This coffee has a nice smooth flavor without the strong after tastes like some of the espresso coffees out there.
My Findings: This juice tasted very fruity with lots of flavor. It was very refreshing to drink, I really liked it a lot. – Great stuff!
Dark chocolate-Covered Coffee Beans
My Findings: I have never tried chocolate covered coffee beans before, and I have to say that I’m now hooked on chocolate covered coffee beans now. Very tasty treats! Eat enough, and you’ll experience a nice little jolt of energy.
My Findings: I love anything coconut. I used some of Camino’s shredded coconut in my baking and you can see the picture of the cookies that I made with the Camino’s shredded coconut below. They made my cookies taste amazing!!
Here is a picture of the “Oatmeal Coconut Caco Nib Cookies” that I made from the products that Camino sent me. These cookies were sooooo delicious that I’m going to be making them again.
