Little Debbies

For Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies

food

I will not lie those little Debbie commercials got me to buy this old school item. In all of these years, it hasn’t changed and to me, that’s a good thing. I love these sugared up oatmeal cookies. They have frosting in the middle of two old fashioned soft oatmeal cookies. One makes a really great snack when I am in the mood for something sweet but still mildly healthy. 12 grams of sugar isn’t insane when I’ve seen soda with double the sugar in it. I hate really sweet things and I don’t really eat ice cream or cake/pies. When I am in the mood, I like a small serving of something like a cookie or a slice of cheesecake. I have to say that I love salty things much better like pretzels and chips which are just as unhealthy as cake and ice cream. It’s all in moderation people. Don’t forget to indulge.

Zesty Paw’s Premium Supplements

My dogs are the love of my life. Ever since my cat Shadow passed away, I have been giving more thought into the age and comfort of my two dogs: Serena and Eva.

Enter Montague:

Serena is a ten year old Chihuahua and Eva is a nine year old Italian Greyhound. They are really getting up there in dog years and I noticed that Serena was having a hard time moving around lately. Due to their age, I figured that Serena in particular was suffering from arthritis and her coat had gotten a little rougher. She also has a benign fatty tumor besides really bad teeth (the ones that haven’t fallen out) that are being worked on next year for better quality of life. She also has a heart murmur. Serena just has a lot of elderly problems, but I want her last years to be good. Eva still acts like a puppy and is very picky about not eating pills or supplement chews.

Enter Zesty Paw’s Premium Supplements:

pet

I am excited to bring to you premium canine supplements that actually work, are affordable, all natural, and even the pickiest dog will love to take these (or not know that they are!). Serena has been trying out the two different chews everyday for the past month and Eva has been given the liquid supplement in her wet food every night. Here is the breakdown of my thoughts on each item.

Zesty Paw’s Omega Bites

Serena has been eating these every night and she really looks forward to eating these. They are rather big soft chews that are chicken flavored. This is Serena’s favorite chew out of the two. She always eats this one first. These chews are for healthy skin and coat. The wire-like hair on her back has started to soften and her fur is shedding less since starting on these. I have a 90 day supply, which retails for $25. So, it is like paying $8 to $9 a month for a coat supplement. This brand is made in the USA and doesn’t contain common dog allergens, which is true of the whole brand. Not sure I want to spend $100 a month for a coat supplement that doesn’t really do a whole lot, but if you are tired of a lot of dog shedding, this is the product for you. She doesn’t shed nearly as much as she used to. She probably sheds a quarter of what she used to. I have a toddler, so I vacuum daily already. Her hair doesn’t bother us.

Zesty Paw’s Mobility Bites

The Mobility Bites are duck flavored and not Serena’s favorite. It has improved her mobility a ton though! I am so impressed with this product and look at how cute it is cut into tiny little hearts. I will be paying $100 a year for this product. It is that good. Serena used to be lazy and not want to get up. I contributed that to her laziness, but the first night that I gave this to her, she jumped up onto my bed. Now, my bed is high and she hasn’t been able to do it before. Now, she jumps up on my bed to cuddle with easy. It is worth the money to see my 10 year old dog run like a maniac in the backyard like she is a puppy again. If you have an older dog, this is a must buy product. She doesn’t seem to be in as much pain moving around. She still sleeps like a lazy bum, but she can move around and get to where she wants to now.

Zesty Paw’s Salmon Oil

pet

My picky dog Eva doesn’t detect this at all in her wet food. Eva is a very picky eater and any meds that she needs to take, I have to basically shove down her throat. This product makes it nice to just give her a supplement that has everything: healthy heart, joint and immune system, skin and coat, and anit-inflammatory. I love that it has everything and I am planning on purchasing this product myself for both dogs. I just realized just how much good stuff is in one bottle. This is like those two other jars in one plus extras. I really love that Eva doesn’t know that she’s having something really good for her.

After sampling these three products, I’m ready to buy some. A browse through their website shows a lot of unique wholesome products. If you want to take care of your furry family members, I highly recommend this website. They even have stuff for cats!

With Love,

Selena

Invisible Oil

For Bumble & Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Primer

I just used this as my leave-in conditioner and it was a great detangler as well. My thin hair needs a leave-in to give extra moisture to the ends and to detangle my knotty hair. I really enjoyed spraying this into my hair and the scent was amazing. I would not purchase though, because I already have my holy grail leave in treatment. This was nice to try, but I wouldn’t splurge on it. It is very hydrating without weighing my hair down and my hair was always very soft after using this. I almost never heat style my hair, so I cannot speak for how it performs as a heat protectant. Since it says primer, you might want to spray a normal heat protectant on top of this one. It may only be for the sun.

Wild Berry & Vanilla Sugar

For Scented Secrets Gingerbread Cookie Body Lotion

I would say 4 oz is about half of a full size of lotion. My big lotions are usually 8 to 12 oz. This is a nice, thick lotion so a little goes a long way. It lasted me about three weeks and a full size takes me 4 to 6 weeks to use up. Three weeks is not bad for a 4 oz lotion. The berry smells very sweet like a berry pie and the vanilla sugar scent smells exactly like it’s name. The sugar was more like a brown sugar scent and took me back to when I used to make my own cookies from scratch. I had to store these bottles upside down to get every last drop out, no cutting the bottle required. I have a few more of these and I am excited to use them. I think I’ll use up the rest after summer. I like to use my shimmer lotions during the summer, so I can actually show off the sheen/shimmer that it adds to the skin. Wearing it during the winter is just wasteful. I think I’ll be able to use up all three of my shimmers this year. I would repurchase these lotions, but they were a holiday set.

Lil’ Meal

For Gerber Graduates Lil’ Meals Mac & Cheese w/Chicken & Vegetables, Spaghetti Rings in Meat Sauce

Two of Dean’s favorite foods are Mac & Cheese and Spaghetti, so he ate these two 6 oz bowls in two sittings. He ate 3 oz at a time. He can really pack in the pasta. He loves anything in a sauce or cheese. I will not repurchase these, because he eats the “adult” version just as well. He doesn’t need the toddler version. I like to expand his taste buds with these Gerber meals and if he does well with them, he can “graduate” to adult food from the table. These meals are fortified and sneak in veggies, which I like. I will be repurchasing other kinds of these lil’ meals, just not these particular ones. I highly recommend these for convenience, when you don’t want to cook a separate meal for your toddler. When we have pork chops, these come in handy, because that meat is too tough for him to eat and chew.

Candy Cane Lane

For Celestial Seasons Candy Cane Lane Green Tea

tea

This has to be my favorite seasonal tea flavor. It is a sweet mint with a hint of vanilla. I don’t need any added sugar with this tea. It is sweet enough on its own. Celestial Seasons is my favorite brand of tea, because I just enjoy more of the flavors than any other brand. If you haven’t tried this, then do you live under a rock? It is seriously amazing and if you like Christmas teas, than you really need to try this. I drank this tea a lot during the end of my pregnancy. It was a serious craving of mine and holds sentimental value to me now. I have to have a box every year. Once I see it on the shelf, I know that Dean’s birthday is around the corner and Christmas! I look forward to this tea every year and I could never get sick of it.

Pasta Pick-Ups

For Gerber Graduates Pasta Pick-Ups Cheese & Spinach Ravioli

food

Dean is not ready for these yet. They went to waste for the most part. He’s not ready to eat this kind of food yet at this size. He gets bored easy with food also. I might try these again in a month or so. I feel like these are for two to three year olds. My son is just not there yet to eat these. He likes to eat the filling, but doesn’t really finish the pasta part. He will eat four whole pieces of ravioli before he gets full and starts only eating the filling. I like these packets for a quick meal, when what the family is eating is a little too advanced for him.
