July is national blueberry month!

July is national blueberry month- who knew? Blueberries are a great source of vitamin C and fiber. Back in February, I was selected to be an Old Orchard VIP Juice Crew member and this month’s box really excited me because it gave me the opportunity to taste test Blueberry Pomegranate. The flavor was a huge hit with my family- and as always, the juice has no sugar added and is naturally gluten free. The July box also included monthly coupons and a recipe for Festive Berry Shortcake- will be making that this week with my kids and I will keep you posted on the results 🙂

It excites me that Old Orchard is committed to offering healthy choices for my family. And did you know that Old Orchard brands is a family owned business from Michigan? Check out their great selection of products here:

If you haven’t tried Old Orchard’s Strawberry Watermelon juice- ruunnnnn to your local store to get your hands on some! It’s that amazing 🍓🍉

Summer and Lemonade- the perfect pairing!

Finally- warm weather has arrived in Wisconsin. What perfect timing for May’s tasting box from Old Orchard to arrive- nothing tastes better on a hot day than a cool refreshing lemonade! And with flavors like Mango, Watermelon Cucumber and Strawberry, there’s a favorite for everyone in my family.

How cool that they included gardening gloves and an herb mix seed packet too?!? Just planted the seeds and can’t wait to see them grow. I’m so grateful to be part of their VIP juice crew and to collaborate with a family owned business from the Midwest.

With all the choices we have as consumers, I’m so glad to be able to work with a brand that puts family and healthy choices first. Happy Memorial Day everyone!



From Old Orchard Brands Family to Ours!

I just can’t say enough about how much I love Old Orchard Brand juices and I’m so grateful to be a part of their VIP team! My April box arrived and the timing is perfect for the 10 ounce Healthy Balance single serve bottles. With summer right around the corner, these grab and go bottles keep my family healthy on the run. My favorite flavor? Hands down it’s Strawberry Watermelon- yummy! The best part is that there are only 10 calories per bottle and only 1 gram of sugar and 2 grams of carbs. Some of the other delicious flavors include Classic Apple, Mango Tangerine and Peach Passion Fruit.

Thank you to Old Orchard Brands, a wonderful family owned company based out of Michigan. I appreciate that you are looking out for my family by providing healthy choices. Which one will be your family’s favorite? Check them out here:

Samsung exceeds expectations!

I recently purchased the Samsung 65- inch QLED Q70R Smart TV. This is my first smart television and I just can’t stop raving about it! When it was delivered, I couldn’t believe how simple the installation instructions were, especially with only 2 cords to plug in. Set up was easy and straightforward- I didn’t even need to open the manual. Adjustments were obvious, and it was fun to play around with it to find the perfect settings.

And I love the slim-line design, no more bulky, heavy tv. But what excites me the most is the vibrant picture with absolute brilliant color. The upgrade is so noticeable in comparison to my old set. To get a true sense of this, I turn it to ambient settings while not watching programs- it’s almost like having a piece of art in my living room! I also love the different sound settings- it truly is crystal clear.

I was also pleasantly surprised how easy it was to navigate the smart tv features, as I couldn’t wait to start using my Amazon prime tv subscription. Once again, I didn’t even need to refer to the manual, as the button was right on the remote. Steps are straightforward, saving me both time and frustration. I also appreciate the convenience of using my iPhone as a remote.

It’s obvious that Samsung did their research, as this product blew away my expectations- from specifications to ease of use. Overall, I’m so thrilled with my tv and can’t wait to discover new features. Hands down, Samsung nailed it and I am one happy customer!

Old Orchard knocks it out of the park!

The first thing I noticed when my Old Orchard VIP Juice Crew member March box arrived, was the word “diet” on the label. I think as consumers we often think of diet as lacking flavor- but that is not the case with this Mango Tangerine Healthy Balance juice!⁣

After sampling this new flavor, I just couldn’t believe that there were only 7 calories per serving! And only 1 gram of sugar and 2 grams of carbs. Thank you Old Orchard for giving my family healthy options that still taste delicious- this doesn’t surprise me as Old Orchard prides itself on being a family owned business👍⁣

Note the pitcher and whisk in the pic? Come on summer- hurry up! Can’t wait to sit outside in the sun with a cold Old Orchard lemonade 😋⁣

Heavenly scent, natural ingredients!

I made a commitment this year to educate myself on reading labels and understanding what is included in the brands and products that I use.  I am passionate about using natural products and essential oils, and I actively seek out products that include them in their ingredients.  ApotheCARE Essentials Body Wash Night Blend is beyond amazing- the relaxing combination of thyme, rosemary and neroli smells heavenly and leaves my skin feeling nourished and hydrated.  What this brand doesn’t include- parabens, dyes and silicone.


What I also love is that the body wash easily lathers and leaves my skin feeling both hydrated and nourished.  My skin had been feeling dry and itchy from the cold winter season and this body wash was the perfect solution.  If you are looking for a product that smells like you are in a luxurious spa, this is the brand for you.  Check out the ingredients for yourself- you will LOVE it!

Simply the best!

I’m beyond excited to be able to share with you the amazing products by Old Orchard- I was selected as a VIP Juice Crew member and this super cool box arrived in the mail!
I have to say that the Cranberry Raspberry juice is now my favorite- even my fussy kids said they love the taste. And as a mom, I’m thrilled that they are getting 100% Vitamin C without any high fructose corn syrup…

Generation Good is Great!

I can’t believe it took me this long to figure out that I need to read and understand labels.  I don’t want my family exposed to hidden chemicals, and need to continue to spread awareness of the importance of purchasing products that are free from chemicals, dyes and artificial fragrances.  Thanks to seventh generation for providing consumers like me the opportunity to purchase products that are not only safer for my family, but still are tough on stains.

Seventh Generation Free & Clear Baby Wipes

Do you know what’s in your baby wipes?  Have you read the labels- what exactly are phthalates, and why do they matter?  They are a binding material used to make plastics flexible.  But did you know that studies have linked these chemicals to asthma, autism, ADD, cancers, infertility, obesity and diabetes?

This is why it is so critical to understand what we are exposing our children to- we as consumers need to do a better job of interpreting these labels and choosing companies who are committed to ingredient transparency.  I am so grateful to Generation Good for educating me on ingredient science and providing me with a free sample of Free & Clear Baby Wipes- check this product information out:

  • Free of alcohol, fragrances & dyes
  • Free of parabens and phthalates
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Thick, strong and generously-sized
  • Use 70% less plastic than their original wipes
