Puritan’s Pride #Review #HealthyStart #NewYear

Jennifer’s Deals was sent product(s) in exchange for this review post. No monetary gain was received. However, all said opinions are of my own.

Everybody has their New Years Resolutions. I usually don’t make them. But this year is different. I have been through so much this past year, that I am ready for a new start. Not just a new start but a healthy new start! And there is one company, Puritan’s Pride, that is helping me begin my healthy start for 2015!

Puritan’s Pride® began over 40 years ago, with the mission of making the finest quality  nutritional supplements available at the best value to their customers. Today, the company remains true to its original commitment and serves millions of loyal customers. Puritan’s Pride manufactures thousands of vitamins, minerals, herbs and other nutritional supplements in their state-of-the art facilities located throughout the U.S. As part of the company’s commitment to quality, Puritan’s Pride only uses ingredients from suppliers worldwide that meet their Quality Assurance Standards, as well as Good Manufacturing Practices food quality standards.

powder

Puritan’s Pride recently sent me a variety of products to try out. The first product that I tried out was the All Natural Vegan Protein Chocolate with Quinoa and Oats.

This innovative formula has been designed to eliminate all animal and animal by-products. Each serving provides nutrients derived from Quinoa and Oats which makes it a great clean and nutrient dense source to help fuel your body, aid in post workout recovery or help satisfy hunger. This alternative protein is also great for those looking to avoid artificial ingredients including preservatives, colors, flavors and sweeteners. Athletes, bodybuilders and everyday active adults can attain benefits by incorporating this protein rich powder into their diet and exercise program.

Continue reading »

I was not the only one that tried the All Natural Vegan Protein Chocolate with Quinoa and Oats. My boyfriend tried it also. I have been using it to help fuel my body. I figured out that if I drink some in the mornings, I feel more energized throughout the whole day. This really helps when I am working on my feet all day long. My boyfriend has been using this to help curve his hunger, especially at night. He tends to get the late night munchies. But instead of grabbing junk food and snacks, he drinks some of this protein shake and it really does curve his hunger.

oil

The next product that I tried out was the Garcinia Cambogia 500mg plus Coconut Oil.

Garcinia Cambogia is related to the superfruit Mangosteen and is sometimes called tamarind, brindleberry or camboge. Often used in Asian recipes, the rind of this fruit contains the revolutionary ingredient Hydroxycitric Acid (HCA), which is considered the “active compound.” Coconut Oil provides a convenient source of essential fatty acids and Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs). Coconut Oil is a smart choice for a healthy lifestyle.*

This supplement is supposed to help block the body’s ability to absorb fat and decrease your appetite. There is also some indications that it could help with Type 2 Diabetes and cholesterol problems. I really liked that this supplement was a soft-gel pill. It was easy to swallow. I have been taking one a day and have been noticing a difference in my appetite habits.

fish

The next product that I tried out was the Omega-3 Fish Oil Plus Circulatory Supplement.

Omega-3 fish oil contains both docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). Supportive, but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. One serving of Omega-3 Fish Oil Plus Circulatory Support* provides 300 mg total of EPA, DHA, and other Omega-3 fatty acids. Cinnamon’s beneficial effects on sugar and fat metabolism can support heart and circulatory health.* While the best way of getting these acids is consuming fatty fish such as salmon at least twice a week, supplements may also contribute to supporting healthy heart health, especially for those who do not like fish.*

focus

Focus & Energy Formula has been my favorite product that Purtian’s Pride sent me.

Whether you want to pump up your workout in the gym or just need a burst of energy to get you going through your day, all you need is one capsule and you’ll be ready to go!* Contains bioactive compounds for dieting support so you can get into excellent shape while keeping your energy levels maximized.* Use in conjunction with an intense daily exercise program and a balanced diet including an adequate caloric intake.

One of the things that I really struggle with is having focus and energy throughout the day. I always seem to drag in the mornings and always end up really tired by 6-7 at night. I started taking the Focus & Energy Formula in the mornings and noticed a huge boost in my energy level. I get so much more done during the day compared to days I have gone without Focus & Energy Formula.

hair

The last product that I tried out was the Hair, Skin & Nails One Per Day Formula.

Biotin plays a key role in the body. It supports the health of the skin, hair, nails and energy metabolism.* As biotin is not stored in the body, it is important to consume adequate amounts each day. Biotin occurs naturally in many foods. Wheat germ, whole wheat bread, egg yolks, dairy products, nuts, Swiss chard, salmon, chicken are all sources of biotin.

I have always been known to bite my nails. I know a horrible habit. I have stopped doing this ever since I have started taking this supplement to help with my nails. I have noticed that my nails are growing faster and look a lot better.

NOTE: Make sure you investigate and talk with your health care provider before you begin taking any supplements. Puritan’s Pride also offers other product lines such as coffee and tea, aromatherapy, pet food, snacks and more!

2015 Off Season Dates for Walt Disney World #Vacation #DisneySide

Disney World Off Season Dates 2015I have started thinking about planning a Disney World trip. I have never been and neither have my three kids. Disney is a huge part of my family. We have all the Disney movies and the majority of Disney characters are my daughters’ favorites. The have to watch movie now is Frozen, but once the new Tinkerbell movie comes out that will bump down to the second spot.

But I want to go during a time where it is not super busy and we are not spending most of our time waiting in lines. So, I am looking at off season dates to visit Disney world.

Who doesn’t want to head to Disney World? The magic, fireworks, family time all make it worth every dime and every minute. But wait, longer lines, busier parks and higher prices may leave you searching for Disney World off season dates 2015.

InStyler Hot Styling Tools #Review #HolidayGiftGuide

Jennifer’s Deals was sent product(s) in exchange for this review post. No monetary gain was received. However, all said opinions are of my own. A huge thank you to Vocal Point for providing products for this post!

What woman doesn’t love to have all the hot hair styling tools? I know this woman right here does! So, when I got the chance to work with Vocal Point to review three InStyler styling tools, I was super excited. I was sent the InStyler Ionic Styler Pro, InStyler Rotating Iron and the InStyler Auto Curler. Want to know something even cooler than this? Well, I am sure you have seen the As Seen On TV Infomercials for the Ionic Styler Pro? That is the one I was sent! Yay!

ionicpro

The first InStyler styling tool that I could not wait to try out was the Ionic Styler Pro. The Ionic Styler Pro is four tools in one. It will straighten your hair, add waves/curls, add shine and add body! Amazing, right?! The Ionic Styler Pro is so versatile that you can use it to style your hair and achieve similar results when compared to using a flat iron, curling iron, conical wand or round brush. I have really liked using the Ionic Styler Pro as a flat iron. It leaves my hair so smooth and shiny. I have used it as a hot brush, but can’t seem to get the hang of it YET! The advantage to the Ionic Styler Por is that it will not crush or burn your hair or put creases in your hair. The gentle heat allows superior styling and touch ups when compared to using just a round brush.

The next styling product that I used was the InStyler Auto Curler. Now, one of my favorite ways to wear my hair is in curls. I could not wait to try this out. The Auto Curler provides natural long-lasting beautiful curls in 3 seconds! Yes, you read that right! 3 seconds! I can do my hair in less than 10 minutes when I use the Auto Curler! This fits my lifestyle so perfect because I hate spending a ton of time on my hair. My morning routine is makeup and hair done in 15 minutes. My morning routine is so easy when I use the Auto Curler.

auto curler

With the unique open barrel design of the Auto Curler, your hair is visible and exposed at all times, preventing hair from getting tangled and becoming jammed in the unit. The open design and ample space surrounding the barrel also makes it easy for the Auto Curler to curl long and thick hair.

rotatingiron

Finally, the last styling tool I used was the InStyler Rotating Iron. This was the first time that I had ever used a styling tool like this one before. The Rotating Iron straightens curls, adds two times body and shine to your hair. This Rotating Iron has a 2-way motorized auto-rotation, 4 heat settings and ionic bristles. The InStyler MAX lets you easily control the direction of the rotating barrel. With the barrel rotating toward the end of your hair you MAXIMIZE the smoothing and polishing action of the motorized barrel. InStyler MAX’s Black Tourmaline Ceramic ensures even heat distribution, smoothly engages your hair, and works with the Ionic Bristles to surround your hair with frizz-reducing negative ions.

I am still getting the hang of the Rotating Iron. I’ve tried to curl my hair with it but I wasn’t that happy with the results. It is not the tool but me. I am a newbie when it comes to things like this so I don’t think I am holding it right. However, I did straighten my hair and it turned out really well. I have never seen my hair with so much body and shine! I got several compliments that day at work.

Overall, I am very happy with all three InStyler styling tools and highly recommend them for the holidays!

You can buy the InStyler Ionic Styler Pro, InStyler Auto Curler and InStyler Rotating Iron at rsvpinstyler.com.

Now, I want to know what you think. Have you tried any of these styling tools before? If so, how did you like them?

Paula Dorf’s Aztec City Eye Pallete & Paula Dorf’s Teal Mascara #Review #HolidayGiftGuide


Jennifer’s Deals was sent a product(s) in exchange for this review post. No monetary gain was received. However, all said opinions are of my own.

I am the type of person when it comes to makeup, I am very laid back. But the type of makeup that I really enjoy using is eye shadows and mascara. I can not go out of the house without some on. So when I got the chance to review Paula Dorf’s Aztec City Eye Pallete and Paula Dorf’s Teal Mascara.

From the desert sand to the crisp blue sky this Aztec City Palette has it all! With just the right balance of professional and flirty, this palette lets you decide between knockout nudes, classy colors, or a mesmerizing mix of both. These five shades allow you to customize your look and transform your mindset to the bronzed beauty of the desert. The sleek mirrored case also contains a specially designed double-ended brush for the perfect application.

eyeshadow

I really like neutral colors like brown and tan. With that being said, I have really enjoyed the tan and brown colors of the Paula Dorf’s Aztec City Eye Pallete. I haven’t used any of the other colors yet, but plan on it when I have a date night! I used a simple eye brush to apply the eye shadow. It applies smoothly and didn’t smudge. I hate eye shadows that end up smudging and make me look like a raccoon!

I also have really enjoyed the Paula Dorf’s Teal Mascara. I have used several different brands over the years and I have honestly never used anything as good as Paula Dorf’s Teal Mascara! It went on perfect. I did not have any clumps or runs.

mascara

I recommend Paula Dorf’s Aztec City Eye Pallete and Paula Dorf’s Teal Mascara as a perfect gift for the older teens and adults you may be buying for!

Crafting bushes from art supply stores, our early tools included the award winning Foundation Brush, Cheek Cream Brush and Eye Transformer Brush, so unique they are patented. Paula Dorf’s designs are so phenomenal that other companies have tried to duplicate them, yet none have been able to match.

After working on their unparalleled brush collection, Paula Dorf Cosmetics created a high quality, long-wearing, easy to use color cosmetic line that is designed for every woman. Their makeup philosophy is to empower women and is captured best in their signature phrase: Become your own makeup artist.
