Fruit & Grain

For Great Value Fruit & Grain Apple Cinnamon

food

Dean and I both love soft granola bars. I have repurchased the Market Basket brand in the berry flavor (Blueberry?) and that one is a hit as well. Dean usually eats half the bar at a time and I break it up into small, easy to eat pieces. It can be very messy, so I always feed him this in his highchair as part of his morning snack between breakfast and lunch. I am surprised that he can eat that much of the bar, but he loves to eat. It really shouldn’t surprise me, but it does. It is made with whole grains and real fruit filling, so it is a healthier snack. Half of the bar will give you 6 grams of sugar, 1g of protein, and 1.25 g of total fat. Half of a bar is 70 calories, so it is very filling to a 21.5 pound little boy, who loves to eat everything in sight.

With Love,

Zesty Paws Doggie Supplements

Zesty Paws

I am lucky enough to be working with the Zesty Paws team again bringing you a review of three different dog supplements that they have to offer. I have to admit, my easy going dog Serena did not enjoy the flavor of these as much as she enjoyed the Chicken flavored Omega Bites. She did eat these though when she realized that she wouldn’t get her Greenie if she didn’t eat these first. The flavor is just not her favorite. They are very good for her though, so withholding a treat works with her.

I love that the brand is transparent and you know exactly what you are buying as a consumer. I like knowing all the ingredients, where they come from, and how they are going to affect my dog/the benefits. Right now, Zesty Paws are 50% off, so if you are in need of some good quality dog supplements, I would stock up now while you can. I find that these supplements get sold out fairly often. They must be doing something right!

Zesty Paws Probiotic Bites

IMG_2644

These bites are pumpkin flavor and Serena is a meat lover. She still ate these bites, though. I also noticed that her breathe didn’t stink as bad after she had been eating these for a few days. These supplements add in digestion and help dogs maintain a healthy immune system. I do see the benefits of digestion, since part of her bad breath does come from her stomach. I would love to see how it helps to improve her breath and tummy issues. She has a sensitive tummy and usually gets sick twice a year.

Zesty Paws Salmon Bites

IMG_2638

Remember when I said that Serena only likes meat flavors? Well, that does not include Salmon. She wasn’t crazy about it, but she didn’t mind it. These supplements have a bunch of Omega oils that are really good for the skin, joints, and heart. Serena has a heart murmur and arthritis. I know that this is helping to keep her heart healthy and joint pain at ease. It is a bonus that it is also good for her skin and coat as well. I love the fact that all of the supplements are cut in heart shapes. So cute!

Zesty Paws Turmeric Curcumin Bites

IMG_2632

Serena is familiar with the duck flavor and wile it isn’t her favorite, she eats them well. I love that this has coconut oil. It is so healthy for you and great for promoting healthy skin and coat in dogs. This is supposed to be a stronger joint supplement and I do see a slight difference between this one and the Mobility Bites. She seems to run a bit longer eating these supplements. It is also good for immune support and healthy digestion. It is supposed to give your dog more energy and improve cognitive skills. Like I said, I see more energy in her, but she’s always been a smart dog. I didn’t notice her mind being less sharp before these supplements. She’s 10 years old, so these might be better for older dogs are dogs that seem more confused at any age.

Overall, I am so happy to have received more supplements to help out my 10 year old dog Serena. Supplements are great to give at any age, but especially for old dogs to help ease their aches and pains. While she may not gobble these up like the Omega Bites, I know that the benefits are worth a little bit of food coaxing. I highly recommend these supplements and I would try a can while they are on sale.

With Love,

Selena

Makeup Inventory: Everything Eyes

I just realized that I never finished up this series! AH! Well, this is the last post in the series, so enjoy! I have a ton of eye products, even though I don’t use them very often. I also don’t use them up very often either. Going into next year, my focus is going to be more on using up single eye products and then moving up to trios and duos and such. I need to get the singles out of the way and the liners. I don’t need 10 million eye liners just 2 would do nice for me or 0. I tend to forget about liner.

Mascara: 5

mascara

I’m surprised I don’t have more like seriously more. Mascara is my weakness. I love this stuff, but I don’t go through them that fast. I only wear dramatic mascara on the weekend and I only like 1 tube open at a time. I’m confident that I can get through 1 by January. I probably go through 2 tubes of mascara a year. If I don’t like the formula like if it smudges or really flakes on me, I throw them out. I’m not going to waste time on a product that doesn’t work for me. It would be like continuing to use a face wash after you know for certain that it’s breaking you out.

Eyeliner: 11

eye

I have way too much eye liner and I don’t even really use it all that much. I need to use up my one liquid before it goes bad or dries up. I want to use up 1 eye liner by next year. I’m currently working on a nude one with glitter in it. I like it and it’s pretty, but I’d rather use an eye shadow under my lash line. I don’t have the eye shape to pull off eye liner. I have hooded eyes and I don’t have the talent/patience for it. I like a mini black to waterline/tightline once in a while, but I don’t need THIS many….EVER.

Eye Shadow: 23

eye

I would like to eliminate this category all together and just use eye shadows in pallet form. I would like to buy another pallet. I like that all the colors you need is in one pallet. I don’t like pulling out my singles, duos, trios, quads. I never remember them. I would like to use up or hit pan on one of these by Jan, but I am working on my project pan. It’s probably not going to happen, but I would like to use up 4 of these next year. The glamour eyes duo I will probably chuck out once I use up the gold shadow. I don’t have any interest in the green. I’ll try it out and see if I can use it as a crease shade. I don’t like dark colors for my lid. If I find anything is too dark for me or hard to work with, I will chuck them. No use keeping them if I’m never going to use them.

Eye shadow Pallet: 1

concealer

I am doing my pan that palette challenge with this one, so I would like it hit pan and use up a few shades. I would like to buy another palette next year. Not sure if I’m buying an eye shadow palette though. I’m really liking the look of the Hourglass 2017 Holiday palette. I want an eye shadow palette with limited dark shades and more lighter shades. Once I finish the first three rows, I’ll probably chuck out the really dark blue and black shades. I’ll try them, but I really have no use for them except for my outer v and I could just use a dark brown for that.

Well, that’s the end of this series. I’m going to revisit my makeup collection in January and see how much came in versus out. I have no plans on buying makeup for the rest of this year, so the only makeup coming in would be from Sephora Play and the Walmart box. I just want to cut down my frivolous spending. I went a bit crazy this year. Now, I need to use up what I spent my money on before buying anymore. I hope everyone is having a great Saturday.

With Love ❤

Collagen Mask

For MJCARE Collagen Essence Mask

Shadow

This sheet mask is supposed to firm up the face, reducing fine lines and stimulating the growth of collagen. My dad used this mask, so I cannot comment of the mask itself. I can comment on the serum inside the packet, though. I used the extra serum on my face, although there was not much left in the packet. The serum was much more thicker and more like a gel. It was sticky and felt like it tightened up the skin/pore a bit. The gel was thicker and stickier than what I am used to. It did seem to tighten my pores, but that left my face feeling tight like it was dry, even with moisturizer on. It felt that way for a couple of hours, so I would recommend using this mask before a night out if pores and wrinkles are your concern. My dad said that his wrinkles seemed plumper after application for an hour or two.

Week From Hell

For Walton Wood Farms Week From Hell Bath Salts

bath

I won this at my work’s gift swap during Christmas time. I didn’t care for the peppery smell in the bottle, but once in the bath, it smelt like nothing. I didn’t notice anything while using this. It helped with sore muscles, but that’s it. I got about 8 baths out of this bottle. I think the bags that I buy from Walmart from Dr. Teals is way better and cheaper. I have the one with avocado and my skin is hydrated after, no need for lotion. I enjoyed using this product, but I would not purchase and do not recommend.

Cocoa Divine

For Equate Moisture Care Cocoa Divine Body Lotion

lotion

My dad is the one that really uses this lotion and I use it occasionally. It is a cheap, moisturizing lotion that does work and is not heavily scented. I prefer a lotion with more of a scent, but this is a decent lotion that has been repurchased at least 10 times. We always have this lotion around and I even use it on Dean. He has dry arms and legs. I put it on after his bath and in the morning, he has softer, smoother skin. I highly recommend and will continue to repurchase this lotion. I like that it is lightly scented and is unisex because of that. It doesn’t bother Dean, who is sensitive to scents. Also, it is more moisturizing than Johnson & Johnson baby lotion. Go Figure!

Go Blonder

For John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Lightening Shampoo

hair

This is a shampoo that gradually lightens blonde hair using citrus and chamomile. For having added fragrance, this shampoo does not smell pleasant, but is in a pleasing bright yellow color. This foam up like a dream from the two sulfates, but is very drying. Make sure to follow up with a hydrating conditioner or hair mask. This lightens up my already bleached/processed blonde hair. It doesn’t work on my natural dark blonde/ashy brown hair to lighten it up any. I like that it made my highlights brighter and less brassy. I used this once a week along with my purple shampoo to keep my blonde hair bright. Since bleaching my hair a year and a half ago, I haven’t gotten my hair done; hence, why I do not need to repurchase this anytime soon. I did like using this though.

With Love,
