Weight Watchers ice cream review

I recently had the chance to review some Weight Watchers ice cream products! Influenster sent me 2 FREE coupons to pick any two that I would like.

 I chose the 'Dark Chocolate Raspberry Ice Cream Bars' and the 'Vanilla Round Ice Cream Sandwiches'. They have such a variety of ice creams to choose from but since I love dark chocolate, it was an easy pick when I chose the Raspberry ice cream bars! It was light and delish, no artificial sweeteners and no guilt about eating it! My family members got a hold of these and devoured them!

The vanilla ice cream sandwiches were really good as well! I used to love eating ice cream sandwiches and with a low fat one, that's come out by Weight Watchers, you can eat it and not feel like you shouldn't have it. My family loved these as well! 

I recommend these as a healthy option for substituting regular ice cream. 

Disclosure: I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

SLIMQUICK Pure review

When I got accepted for the SLIMQUICK Pure campaign, I was so excited! I've been doing home work outs and I've eating healthier but I do need something to give me that extra boost to lose the weight! 


SLIMQUICK Pure Extra Strength Mixed Berries Drink Mix is designed for women to help them lose 3 times the weight by addressing the 6 physical reasons women have trouble losing weight. 

SLIMQUICK Pure works to

-Increase Metabolism

-Reduce Appetite

-Boost Energy
-Reduce Excess Water
-Support Hormones
-Reduce Stress

When you taste our Mixed Berries flavour you won't believe it has 0 calories, but it does! You can pop a SLIMQUICK Pure Extra Strength Drink Mix packet into your water bottle, or stir one up when you need a tasty weight-loss boost! SLIMQUICK Pure Extra Strength Drink Mix packets are ready to go wherever you go!

Rest assured SLIMQUICK Pure Extra Strength Drink Mix contains natural ingredients like antioxidants, calcium, vitamin D and BioPure Green Tea™.

SLIMQUICK Pure Extra Strength Drink Mix has isolated the fat-burning component in green tea that speeds up your metabolism. It is called BioPure Green Tea™ and it has been shown in a published clinical study to help overweight women lose 3 times a the weight versus dieting alone, in just 13 weeks. 

I was surprised at how much the mixed berries flavor was so good! To use it, all you do is pour 1 packet of powder into a 16.9 oz bottle of cold water and stir until it dissolves. You take it with food and there are serving directions on how much to take from day to day. You should have a reduced calorie diet as well as a regular exercise program. 

I do have a hard time losing weight due to being Hypothyroid w/Hashimoto's thyroiditis. I've lost a few pounds and I'm going to continue taking the SLIMQUICK powder packets and see how things go and hope to lose some more weight while taking this product. I do recommend it as you would have nothing to lose but the weight itself. 

Here is their website and they do offer a 100% 30 day money back guarantee. If you've read up to here so far, awesome! I was given a $5 off coupon for my readers good till the end of the month! Give it a try, you'll LOVE it!

Disclosure: I received this product free in exchange for my honest review. Regardless, I only recommend products that I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. The opinions expressed above are my own. This post is sponsored by BrandBacker.

Love + Blessed July unboxing review

Time for another unboxing of the 'Love + Blessed' box for the month of July! The theme for this month is, 'Blessings'. I'm reminded by this to be thankful in everything. Nothing should go by without me saying, 'thank you Lord for this...' what ever it may be. I'm reminded of a hymn that I love, "Count Your Blessings"!

Here's a lovely bright green sticker for this month that says, "Count Your BLESSINGS not your troubles". I like that quote. Many times we go through situations and think of our troubles more than what we're blessed with. Good reminder!

Here are the front and back of the Scripture cards! This month, we received 2 of them! Luke 1:28 
"Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!" The other one is also from the book of Luke, from the same chapter. Luke 1:48-49 ..."For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed. For He who is mighty has done great things for me, and holy is His name." I always put these cards in my wallet as soon as I receive them! :)

Here's the mini poster that says, "too BLESSED 2 be stressed". I have to remember this. Too many times we can be focused on our problems and not the "Problem Solver" from whom ALL blessings flow from!

We also received an organza bag filled with blessing reminder cards and a "What a Blessing!" sticky notepad. Cute bag, love it!

Here are the blessing reminder cards! There are 25 of them. I love how bright and cheerful they all are! You can complete the sentence and put these anywhere like on the fridge, computer, tv, mirror, bathroom, etc as reminders of how blessed in Christ we are. 

Here's the other side of them! Aren't they lovely?! I really am going to love using these cards! They'll make items around me 'POP' with all the color going on! :)

Here are a few that I worked on and I taped them around my mirror! :)

Here are ALL of the items from this month's 'Love + Blessed' box. The boxes cost $10 a month + $3 to ship. Buy one for a family member or friend who needs some encouragement! They'll be so blessed and so will you for blessing someone!

Disclosure: I received a free product for a review. My pictures are my own and my review is 100% honest.

Review: Love and Blessed June box

As every month goes by, I can't wait to see what's going to be in the following month's 'Love + Blessed' box! This box is a christian subscription service that sends out inspiration and encouragement each month. This is the June box and every month has a new theme to it. For this month, it's all about 'Hope'!

As soon as I opened the box up, I noticed that the inside of it didn't have the large sticker of the theme of the month. It was actually on a pretty large, glossy type card and you could pull it off easily. I definitely prefer it like this where as I can keep these and hold onto them and have them as reminders instead of throwing the boxes away where the encouragement was stuck onto the boxes. 

Next, we have our removable sticker that says, 'Hope Changes Everything". I'm thinking about putting mine maybe in a mini photo album or something! I don't want to stick them onto anything so I think I might do that and I figure, I can flip through the album and see each one of these beauties! 

We have our matching card with the clouds that coordinates with all the items in the box. This is the front of the card.

The back of it always has a verse of Scripture that goes along with the encouragement of the month, which is 'hope'. This is a well known verse that says, "But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:31 Currently, I keep these precious cards in my wallet. :) Every Scripture card each month can be a memory verse for you to memorize! 

We have the  mini poster that comes in every box and you can do whatever you like it with it. This one says, "Hold On Pain Ends". You can put it in a frame and gift it to that special someone who needs to hear that there is hope.

This book is called, "31 Rays Of Hope", a month of daily devotionals by Hollie Marie. It has 112 pages and each devotion is brief. It's only between 2-3 pages long. The devotionals begin with a Scripture verse, then it goes into a message and lastly, a prayer to our Heavenly Father!

A bookmark was included and also a sticker on the inside of the book to read and pass along to someone who could use some hope!

This is everything that was in my June, 'Love + Blessed' box! If you're interested in purchasing a subscription, it's only $10 a month and shipping is free! This would really bless someone who needs the Word of God in their lives and that extra encouragement.
