Simply7 Snacks Review

Disclosure: A big thanks to Simply7 for sending me your super tasty and healthy chips. I'm truly impressed. :)

I'm always looking for healthy snacks for my family that actually taste good. So when Simply7 reached out and asked if I'd like to try some of their chips I was delighted!

My Review:
Simply7 sent me their Kale Lemon & Olive Oil and Dill Pickle Kale Chips. I NEVER would've believed someone if they told me how good Dill Pickle Kale Chips were but these are truly delish! They are my fave and I recently choose these chips as an Influenster must have product as well! I actually had these chips in my bag on a play date recently and when I pulled them out - the kids ate them all - seriously! I'm obsessed with Simply7 and I highly recommend giving these a try!

What do you think? Have you tried Simply7? I would love to hear your thoughts :)

Reach your goals on sip at a time {Tease Tea Review}

Disclosure: Thank you SO much to Tease Tea for sending me your amazing teas. I feel re-energized and ready to conquer my health goals. Absolutely Tea-Lightful <3

I love drinking tea. There's nothing more comforting to me than a hot cup of tea in the mornings and evenings. Lately, I've been a little lax during the summer hosting company and making not-so-healthy food choices. This has left me feeling a little blah and my skin has also started to show signs of my not-so-great choices. So I decided I needed to kick my butt in to high gear and start to take accountability of my health. That's when I reached out to Tease Tea and I was very excited that they agreed to work with me on this post and sent me their Skinny In The City, To The Finish Lime, Midnight Mint & their super adorable pink Infuser.

My favorite is the To The Finish Lime - an energizing tea blend that is sure to get you hopping in the morning instead of dragging. I have been drinking a total of three cups of Tease Tea a day. My first cup is around 8am (To The Finish Lime) another (To The Finish Lime) around 1pm after lunch so that I have enough energy to get me through the rest of the afternoon. My third cup of tea (Midnight Mint) is around 8pm after I put Isla down for bed. The taste of these teas is smooth, fresh and lightly herbal (just how I prefer) and it feels can I say almost magical. I also do like the Skinny In The City blend but because of my overactive thyroid I've been sticking with To The Finish Lime & Midnight Mint. There are over 25+ blends online to choose from and all teas in their blends are from the top 10% grade of tea gardens from around the world.

It seems I'm not the only one who believes that Tease Tea is the best tea brand. Tease Tea has been featured on The Social, Rachel Ray, USA Today, CTV and Huffington Post! If you would like to try Tease Tea their is a promotion for Free Shipping and Tea Sample on all orders over $55.

What do you think? Have you tried Tease Tea? I would love to hear your thoughts!

When Will Solar Start to Save You Money?

Guest Post: Thank you to Erin Vaughan writer for Modernize who wrote this article and for sharing your knowledge about Solar energy and if going solar is the right decision for your family.

Purchasing a solar energy system for your home is a tricky matter. While panels can cut your monthly bills enormously, they aren’t exactly cheap, and that means it can take a while for your energy savings to catch up to your initial investment. Thankfully, however, there are many government tax credits and utility programs that offer massive discounts on your upfront costs—you just have to know where to get them.

We at Home Improvement Leads love a great deal, and we know that when it comes to solar, the mathematics can get a little murky. That’s why we compiled this article, to help you understand how to calculate your expenses and savings—so you can decide if solar is right for you!

Solar energy can make your monthly utility bill disappear
The biggest benefit to going solar is the savings on your monthly electricity bill. Depending on the size of your system, and the amount and intensity of the sunlight in your area, you could potentially eliminate your monthly bill, which is great, because who likes paying bills? But that’s only if you correctly calculate your annual energy usage. To get started, try tracking the amount of kilowatt hours you use each month—it should be listed on your energy bill. Make sure to look at how your energy consumption changes throughout the year. If you live in a dry, warm area, you’ll probably have the lowest consumption numbers, whereas if you live in the southeast or in the north, heating and cooling can drive up your costs. Just to give you some idea, the average home consumes around 1,000 kilowatt hours per month, and runs up around $115 in electricity per bill.

Solar energy systems can take a while to pay off
To completely cover your home’s energy use, you’ll need to purchase equipment that can generate quite a bit of energy—that means you may be looking at a seven to ten kilowatt system. And that can cost quite a bit; expect to pay between $20,000 to $40,000 for the equipment alone. Meanwhile, you’ll also have to put up money for labor costs and permitting fees, as well as sales and property taxes if you live in an area that does not have an exemption for solar equipment. That can bulk up the price a lot—expect these costs to add several thousand dollars to your system price, meaning it will take longer to start to save you money. In fact, it could take between 20 to 30 years for you to earn back the initial expenses of installation.

Some locations have generous incentives that can save you money
The only problem with that equation, however, is that it doesn’t take into account some of the hefty incentive programs available to homeowners that invest in solar for their rooftops. The federal Residential Renewable Energy Tax Credit, for instance, is available to any household with a qualifying system, and it returns homeowners 30 percent of their initial installation and labor costs, shaving off thousands of dollars. Meanwhile, some states also have their own similar incentives—they’ll either pay you a flat rate or a percentage of your equipment costs, or they’ll give you a certain per-watt incentive based on your system’s expected output or rated capacity. If you live in an area that’s very pro-solar, like Hawaii, California, New York, or Massachusetts, you could be saving hundreds or thousands of dollars.

And your energy provider may credit you for energy you provide
Meanwhile, almost every state has a net metering program—that means your electricity provider is required to credit your household for extra energy you return to the grid. For instance, say it’s a very hot, sunny summer day. Your system may generate well over the 80 to 90 kilowatt hours per day it takes to keep your home powered. So the utility company collects that excess energy and distributes it to nearby homes and businesses—and they pay you for being an energy generator. In some places, your energy provider will allow you to cash out these credits, or roll them over to your next utility bills, which can save you hundreds annually.

While it’s difficult to predict exactly how long it will take you system to make you money (that depends on how much energy you’re able to generate, as well as what kinds of incentives are available to residents in your area), you’ll start saving when your total monthly energy savings are enough to make back what you paid on equipment and installation costs, minus any incentives you were offered. For most people, this will take several years, but after that, your system virtually runs for free!

Struggling with Bath Time? {Crazy Foam Review}

Disclosure: Thanks a million to Crazy Foam for making bath time fun for my little princess. This is product is a #MomWin!

Lately, I feel like bath time is a struggle every night with Isla and by the end of the day I'm too wiped out for tantrums. Our night time routine is typically the same every night. I usually give Isla her bath around 7pm every so she can wind down and then we read books and before we go to bed. So I was delighted when Crazy Foam reached out me to see if I was interested in reviewing their Crazy Foam 3-1 fun foam body wash shampoo and conditioner.

My Review:
I love Crazy Foam, it truly has become a staple in our household. It's interactive way to make bath time fun for Isla. She loves the Crazy Foam bottle and helping me spray the foam. She points to the bottle and says "Foam, Momma Peazz". The cans adorned with pop culture characters, like Wonder Woman, Batman and Superman, or fairies and princesses will get kids excited for bath time. They will also get to use their imagination to sculpt and shape the cotton candy-scented foam while getting clean. I love this product and highly recommend giving it a try. Oh, and it's wallet friendly as well which is always a plus!

Crazy Foam is available on and for a suggested retail price of $5.99.

What do you think? Have you tried Crazy Foam? I would love to hear your thoughts.

Please Excuse The Mess!

Hi Y'all! I want to thank all of my loyal readers for following my blog over the past couple of years. Recently, I haven't been blogging as much. Over the past two years I have been through some major life changes. The biggest changes were becoming a Momma and moving our family across the country from San Diego to Charleston. With that being said, I feel like I have lost my focus a bit and I'm trying to find my way back to the blogging world. Over the past couple of months I have spent my free time reading other blogs and learning new tips to perfect my craft as best as I can. So...I have decided that it is time to update my blog to where I am currently in my life and I'm undergoing a rebranding. So please excuse the mess while I work on my new and improved blog. I hope you come back to see the new changes and enjoy!
XOXO Wendy
