Go Sili with Silikids {Silikids Review}

Disclosure: Thank you so much to Silikids for sending us your SiliSkin Sippy Cup & SiliSkin Reusable Snack Bags. We just love the Silikids brand!

About Silikids®:
Silikids® was founded in 2006 and is the first mom-founded brand focusing on children’s products made out of silicone. Silikids products are safe, non-toxic, and durable. easy to clean and use and made from 100% food grade silicone.

Why use silicone:

Safe: Silicone is basically made up of silicon, a natural element present in sand and rock, which after oxygen, is the most abundant element on earth! Silicon is transformed into silicone when combined with oxygen, carbon and hydrogen. Because it is an inert material, it does not react with food or liquids so no unpleasant flavors can transmit. It’s also non-toxic, hypo-allergenic and does not promote bacteria or fungus growth.

Non-Toxic: Due to concerns regarding BPA, many people are switching to BPA-Free products. Silicone offers just that solution. Silicone DOES NOT contain toxic chemicals like bisphenol-A, lead, PVC and phthalates.

Durable: Silicone is very durable so you won’t have to worry about disposal for a long time.
No need to dispose and create waste regularly, and silicone is recyclable - although probably not through your city-wide recycling program. There are many specialty recycling facilities that recycle silicone. Send your Silikids products back to Silikids and they will recycle it for you!

My Review: I just can't get over how cool the Silikids Sippy Cup & SiliSkin Reusable Snack Bags are! Totally differant than the sippy cups and snack bags that we have been using and I'm totally crazy about the design and quality of these two amazing products. I was a little nervous putting both of the products in the dishwasher as I had never used Silicone before but was amazed at how well both the sippy cup and snack bag stood up to the dishwasher test. The snack bag is slim and fits so easily in my mommy bag and snaps into place very well. I haven't had to worry about my snacks spilling out either (always a win). I love the idea of purchasing products that improve the way we live and are wallet friendly.

The Ultimate Beach Tote! {Beachmate Review}

Disclosure: Thank you SO SO much to Beachmate for our awesome beach tote. This is a product that the entire family is enjoying. If you are beach lovers like we are I recommend purchasing one of these totes. This is a quality tote that is built to last and enjoy!

My family lives for the beach and we are fortunate enough to live in a place where we can enjoy the beach all year. Even in the colder months you will find us wandering in the sand and enjoying the brisk ocean breezes.

Our daughter turned two in July and we are so thankful that she adores the beach as much as her Momma and Daddy. We spend at least one day a week chasing after her in the soft South Carolinian sun and sand.

Since we make this outing so often it is important for us to be prepared as any parent of a toddler knows. That's why we are overjoyed that Beachmate agreed to sponsor this post. Always on the lookout for products that help improve the quality of our lives, the Beachmate tote is a beach Must Have. We are so impressed with the quality, design and functionality of this beach carrier and have been spreading the word to everyone we know!

My Review:

Beachmate is lightweight and efficient! Beachmate is basically a large plastic tote covered with durable, bright (makes it easy to find) weather resistant fabric that protects your belongings.

On the bottom of the bag is a large cooler, which is the perfect size to fit all of your beach snacks. We tested the cooler for 4 hours and our drinks were still cold.

On top of the cooler are different size stack-able buckets with tough nylon straps that can also be used to carry even more belongings. They can also be used as beach buckets, drink holders, and little snack tables.

On the back two shovels snap onto bag. These shovels are A W E S O M E. They are heavy duty made from industrial strength plastic and will keep your little one busy for hours.

The exterior of the bag has many pockets to store items such as phone, keys, sunscreen and other important items.

What do you think? Have you heard of or tried Beachmate? I would love to hear your thoughts!

Purely Elizabeth Grain-Free Granola Review

Disclosure: Thank you so much to Purely Elizabeth for sending me their Original Grain-Free Granola and Banana Nut Butter Grain-Free Granola. This gluten-free granola brand is so tasty and good-for-you and I highly recommend trying for yourself. You won't be disappointed!

About the brand:
Elizabeth Stein, a holistic nutrition counselor, founded Purely Elizabeth in 2009 after seeing a lack of healthy gluten-free options. She set out to create a solution for herself and her clients using good-for-you super food and ancient grain ingredients. Today, Purely Elizabeth continues to create delicious, nutrient-rich products using the most innovative ingredients on the market. Purely Elizabeth offers granola, oatmeal, muesli and breakfast cereal -- all of which are certified gluten-free, vegan, non-gmo and organic. Recently they released the first Probiotic Granola on the market + a Grain-Free Granola.

My review:
I'm always on the lookout for healthy foods that give me more energy. After I gave birth to my daughter two years ago, I was diagnosed with an overactive thyroid. Although recent blood work seemed to checkout that my thyroid levels had re-balanced, I try to keep it in check by choosing healthier food options as I think it may have something to do with the problems I was experiencing. Some of the studies that I researched said that trying a gluten-free diet may help and my thought was that it couldn't hurt. I do not follow a strict gluten-free diet but when I can I do try to find alternative options to foods that contain gluten.

What I call my morning fuel consists of plain greek yogurt, granola and honey. If you haven't tried this concoction yet, please do because it is so delicous and so good for you! For me, yummy foods are all about the ingredients. So I was elated when Purely Elizabeth agreed to partner with me on this post. Made with organic hemp, chia + coconut flakes. Purley Elizabeth is NON-GMO and Gluten-Free. This is the BEST granola brand I have ever tasted. Both of the granola's that I tried have 5 grams of protein which is always a plus. Try sprinkled over yogurt (my favorite), on top of ice cream, smoothies or salad. You can also just eat a handful by itself. :)

More about the ingredients:

Hemp is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and protein, as well as sulfur + iron.

Coconut sugar is an unrefined, low-glycemic + nutrient-rich sweetener.

Coconut oil has antiviral and antimicrobial properties and contains medium-chain fatty acids that get used as energy rather than stores as fat.

Chia seeds are a super food seeds providing excellent sources of omega-3 fatty acids. Have you tried Purely Elizabeth Granola? I would love to hear your thoughts.

Stock your pantry with the prettiest foods ever! {Victoria Amory Review}

Disclosure: Thank you so much to Victoria Amory for giving me the opportunity to sample your superb flatbread crisps. Your brand is truly phenomenal.
Our family loves to snack so I'm always on the lookout for healthy treats that also taste great. That's why I'm delighted that I found Victoria Amory flatbread crisps.

Crafted using all-natural ingredients, no preservatives or weird ingredients, Victoria Amory foods are incredibly delicious, good-for-you, and striking. Throwing a dinner party? This is a must buy. The packaging is so sophisticated you will be sure to impress your guests. They will be even more impressed by the electrifying flavors that delicately blend in your mouth.

My Review: We tried the Rosemary & Parsley, Classic Sea Salt & Roasted Red Pepper flat bread crisps and devoured all three. However, if we had to make a choice the family favorite was the Roasted Red Pepper with it's unique fusion of spices, we couldn't get enough! Not only does Victoria Amory make amazing flatbread crisps but they also have amazing condiments such as Hot Pink Mayonnaise that I would love to try as well. What do you think? Have you tried Victoria Amory? I would love to hear your thoughts.

Namaste Gluten Free Foods {Review & Giveaway}

Disclosure: Thank you SO much to Namaste Foods for sending me your Pasta Pisavera, No Sugar Added Muffin Mix and Quinoa Flour in your super cute Namaste tote AND for sponsoring this giveaway! Your brand is truly something special!

My Review: Who knew that Gluten Free foods could taste so good! Namaste sent me their Pasta Pisavera, No Sugar Added Muffin Mix and Quinoa Flour to try. I loved them all but my favorite of the three is the No Sugar Added Muffin Mix. It took minutes to make and literally melts in your mouth. It's the perfect breakfast goody or also great as a bonus dinner bread as well.

The Pasta Pisavera was also very tasty as well. I have found that gluten free pasta often tastes like gluten free pasta but the Pisavera was surprisingly yummy. I like my pasta salad cold so I just added tomatoes, peppers and red onion and it was an instant hit in the household.

Lastly is the Quinoa Flour. I never really thought much about how flour could influence a meal but I have to tell you I could actually taste the difference in quality and it was amazing! I made Chicken tenders dipped in Quinoa Flour, Panko & Olive Oil, and it came out fabulous.

All Namaste products are free of wheat, gluten, soy, potato, dairy, casein, peanuts and tree nuts and are carefully manufactured in their own dedicated allergen free facilty. All products are certified gluten free, Kosher and most are approved through the Whole Grain Council and Non-GMO Project.

There are so many other foods to try from Namaste: Breakfast, Easy Meals, Desserts, Sugar Free & Pantry Staples. What are your thoughts? Have you tried Namaste Foods. I would love hear from you.

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!

Why are the called Simply7? There are actually 7 really good reasons why the company has chosen Simply7 as their name.

1. Clean Ingredients
Nothing genetically modified. The closer it is to its original form, the purer it is and the better it is for you.

2. No Added Preservatives
Preservatives add strange things to your food, things you shouldn’t have to eat.

3. 0 Grams Trans Fats
No trans fats or cholesterol in Simply7 snacks.

4. No Artificial Colors or Flavors
Nature is beautiful and it tastes great! Why mess with perfection?

5. Gluten Free

7. Simply Delicious
Simply7 believes you can balance healthiness with taste so they made their food taste good and be good for you.

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!

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!
