I grew up munching on Slim Jim's but, I know they're not healthy for you. So, once I found out about CHOMPS, I couldn't wait to review these and find an alternate to that 'other product'! 

About this product, Chomps Snack Sticks are an awesome new health product made with 100% Non-GMO Grass-Fed Angus Beef which is sourced from New Zealand. The sticks contain no artificial ingredients (no nitrites, nitrates, MSG, colors, flavors) and are shelf stable for a year with the help of celery juice! Best of all, they taste AMAZING! Think much healthier and tastier version of Slim Jim's. 

I was sent 6 CHOMPS snack sticks, 2 of each flavor. The flavors were: Original, Hoppin' Jalapeno and Crankin' Cran. My favorite was the original and I also enjoyed the the Jalapeno which had just a little heat to it. The Crankin' Cran was pretty HOT! :) These had some nice bite to them and not skinny and oily like Slim Jim's are. Also, these sticks were easy for me to push up. I've always had difficulty where the meat would get stuck in the plastic with you know, that 'other product' but not with CHOMPS

These 100% grass fed beef snacks were raised with no antibiotics and are delicious! The original and Hoppin' Jalapeno are only 100 calories and the Crankin' Cran is 110 and them have a nice amount of protein in them! They're so yummy! Visit CHOMPS to get your healthy protein fix on!

Review: imPRESS on nails

I haven't tried press on nails since I was like a teenager. However, I recently had the chance to review the 'impress press on manicure gel nails'! I received 2 packs. One of them has 30 pink ultra shine gel nails with 6 of them being accent (gold/white mix) nails. Very pretty! The other pack is brown has 24 ultra gel shine nails with a couple of decorations to put onto your nails. Love both of these colors as their my favorite. These press on nails secure like glue, are waterproof, gap free seal and their flexible. 


So, first, find the correct size. Next, you cleanse the nail, Then, you peel off the backing and align your nail with cuticle. Finally, press down firmly. You can wear them all week long if possible. Mine didn't make it that long as I do wash my hands a lot and I think that had something to do with that!

To remove, you just gently peel the nail off from the sides or you can use polish remover. Very easy to remove. No problem! Check out imPRESS nails!

Review: Original Bamboo Memory Foam Pillow

This review is for the 'Original Bamboo Memory Foam Pillow'. When I received the pillow, (see above), it came vacuum sealed. When I cut the plastic off, this is how it looked: (see below) very flat.

I read online where people put it in the dryer for a little bit to fluff it up. Or, you can just pound it with your fist and squish it which I did! :) I did notice the first day when I received this, that it had a strong odor. I know these memory foam pillows do, so it's not just this one. So, once I fluffed it all up by hand on the 2nd day that I received this, this is how it looked! 

It's so soft and it's a queen size pillow so it's quite large! I like this memory foam pillow. It's very soft and comfortable. It's something that could last for quite some time with care.

Review: Sweet N Low

I haven't had Sweet N Low for quite a few years up until now. The sweetness of it is equal to 2 packets of sugar. I used to put it in my unsweetened iced tea. Today, I used it in my Caramel Vanilla Chai tea and enjoyed it!

I was sent a nice thermos type cup, a box containing 50 packets, a lil packet holder and some samples to give away. I gave the sample packs away to people at work. Unfortunately, the packet holder arrived damaged. :( I don't know think I'll be giving up my Splenda but maybe alternate every now and then.

Review: NKJV Hagee Prophecy Study Bible

I love prophecy, end time news, biblical headlines you name it! We're getting closer each day to Jesus' return to come get us! I had the chance to review John Hagee's prophecy study Bible in the NKJV and I was so excited to dig right in to God's Word! Features to this Bible include:

  • Introduction to Bible prophecy
  • Index to Prophetic Passages
  • Top 20 questions about Bible prophecy
  • Diamonds for daily living
  • God's great promises
  • God's great salvation
  • Evidences
  • Spokesmen for God
  • Bible insights
  • Bible prophecy charts
  • Full concordance
It also includes maps as well! Sometimes prophecy can get confusing, too many events happening and you're not sure about them. Well, this Bible lays out some prophecy charts which I just love and it helps me to SEE it laid out and for instance, I see the Seals spoken of in Revelation 6:1-8:6. On the same page, it also has the Trumpets from Revelation 8:7-11:19. As well as the Bowls, Revelation 15:1-16:21. 

I really enjoy this prophecy Bible and recommend it to those that are interested in prophecy and the end times and what's to come!

Love + Blessed: Joy Box

This is the joy box from Loved + Blessed. As always, it comes with a theme card and for this month, the topic is, 'joy'! We all have been through things and it's hard to be joyful in many circumstances but good is around and for that, we have to be grateful and in that, we can find some joy.

Here's the mini poster that you can frame if you wish. It says, "Make a joyful noise!"

This is the Scripture card and it has Romans 12:12 on it which says, "Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer." These are great to keep in a wallet and nice for memorizing Scripture.

This is the sticker.."Today I choose joy."

Last, is a cd album by House Fires music that contains 11 songs. I like quite a few of them on here but I think 'Only You Satisfy' is my favorite.

I enjoy every box of Love + Blessed that I receive and you will too! Every month, you'll see encouragement in them like the items listed above in your very own boxes. Prices start at $10 + $3 S & H. Check out Love + Blessed to purchase for your family and or friends!

Disclosure: I received this subscription box in exchange for my honest opinion.

Review: Aveeno Skin Relief Gentle Scent Lotion and Body Wash

This is my review of the Aveeno Skin Relief Gentle Scent Lotion and Body Wash in the coconut scent. I received 2 of the lotions and 2 of the body washes. I love the smell and how even though, this has the scent of coconut, it's still as gentle as one that's fragrance free. You don't need to apply a lot of the lotion on your hands as a little bit does go a long way. I love how my hands smell fresh and are soft to the touch! For the body wash, it doesn't lather as good as I'd like it to but it'll do and you can even use it for shaving. 

Disclosure: I'm a member of the Crowdtap Aveeno rewards program, and Aveeno sent me samples of its Aveeno Skin Relief Gentle Scent Lotion Nourishing Coconut to review.

Review: The One Year Hearing His Voice Devotional

This review is for 'The One Year Hearing His Voice Devotional': 365 days of intimate commmunication with God by Chris Tiegreen. First off, the cover is beautiful! This book has 370 pages and each day has a Scripture, a nice devotional and a brief prayer. It also has a Scripture index in the back. 

Listening to God is a process, a journey and an adventure. This can take time, but it's worth the effort. He promises that those who seek Him will be rewarded with His presence and His voice. The words of the living God are powerful and life-changing. We have to believe that God still speaks, but that He's speaking to us. I recommend this book for brothers and sisters that want to hear the Lord speak to their hearts and minds.

Review: 10,000 Steps a Day to a Better You by Sleekly, Pedometer

I needed a Pedometer and so I was glad to see one by 'Sleekly' on Tomoson that I could review. I tried it out and was not pleased with it at all. It does not give accurate step counts. I simply had it in my hand and it would jump anywhere between 3, 5, to even 10 steps! This is the worst pedometer I've ever had. Actually, the only one that has ever been awful! This is a terrible product and I don't recommend it needless to say. Save your money! This pedometer is going in the trash.
