I found this recipe on Martha Stewart’s website.

What you need:
3/4 cup chocolate chips
12 oz room temperature tofu
1/2 cup warm Almond Breeze vanilla almondmilk with a hint of honey
extra chocolate chips to garnish
Blender or food processor.

What do do:
1. Microwave chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl in 30 second increments, stirring each time until melted all the way.

2.In a food processor or blender add tofu, melted chocolate , and Almond Breeze almondmilk. (I used a blender) Mix until smooth.

3. You can put in individual bowl or a big bowl. Put in refrigerator until chilled, at least 30 minutes. It tastes so much better when really cold. When ready to eat top with chocolate chips & enjoy! 🙂

Renuzit Pearl Scents Review + Giveaway #DesignYourAir

I love using different scents it can really change your mood and make your home feel and smell nice. Sometimes finding a scent just ties everything together. I love using candles or sprays but I was lucky enough to try Renuzit Pearl Scents in Sea Breeze this month.

A little about pearl scents:
Renuzit Pearl Scents is a odor neutralizer that fills your home with refreshing fragrances that last up to 30 days. It’s easy to set up and no need to keep it by a plug or keep a lighter handy. Just twist the cap off, take off the seal, & twist the cap back on.

Renzuit Pearl Scents Pearls

Available in:
Sea Breeze
After the Rain
Seductive Pineapple

When opening the box it came in I could get a nice whiff of the scent. When I took off the seal and placed it in the living room , I noticed the scent was really overwhelming for me. I can be sensitive to some frgrances and it makes me nauseous and I get headaches. No fun! I was sort of bummed because I really enjoyed the scent. I ended up putting it in the bathroom since it is away from where I am most of the time. I mean what bathroom can’t use a nice scent and need odors to be neutralized?

After a week the smell wasn’t as strong as it was when I opened it, so now its in the living room. Whenever I want a little more scent , I just shake the pearls up. I love the decorative top and the bottle design is nice too.

Also thought I liked the fun design on the label, I took it off . It makes it look a little more unique looking. With the decorative top & colorful pearls , it adds a nice touch where ever you decide to put your Renuzit Pearl Scents. No one would know its making your home smell nice and neutralizing odors. It just looks like a decor piece.

Carrot cake overnight oats with Almond Breeze vanilla almondmilk with a hint of honey

I’m always surprised when I hear people say they don’t eat breakfast. Eating a healthy breakfast is one meal no one should miss. It helps get you going, helps you maintain a healthy weight, & gives you energy throughout the day. You are less likely to snack on the bad stuff through the day as well. One of the reasons I hear for not eating breakfast is, “I have no time to make something healthy in the mornings.” Well with this recipe you don’t have that excuse. It only takes a few minutes to prepare.
Not only is this a great breakfast but you can have it as a snack or dessert.

I was sent Blue Diamond vanilla almondmilk with a hint of honey and thought it would be perfect in this carrot cake overnight oatmeal. I didn’t even know Blue Diamond has almond milk with a hint of honey.

It is free of dairy, soy, lactose, cholesterol, peanuts, casein, gluten, eggs, saturated fat and MSG. You also get 45% of you daily calcium, 25% of Vitamin D , & 50% of Vitamin E!
60 calories in just 1 cup.
I have to look for this next time in stores because I love it with a hint of honey. It just adds the right enough of sweetness. Would be great in cereal, smoothies, by itself, baking.


What you need:

  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • Blue Diamond vanilla almondmilk with a hint of honey 
  • 1/2 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1/2 tablespoon of flax meal 
  • 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder 
  • Shredded carrots, I used about 6 baby carrots
  • Cinnamon , all spice, ginger 
  • I top mine with raisins, pumpkin seeds, & sunflower seeds

    Grate carrots 

    Combine all ingredient in a mug , mason jar, bowl or something of that sort that has a lid. The mug I used had stuffed peppers. I just washed it & took the sticker off. It’s my favorite mug now. 

    Put in refrigerator overnight

    In the morning it’s ready to eat.

    Vita Sciences – Maxasorb B12 cream

    I was excited Vita Sciences sent me Maxasorb B12 cream. I just tried their melatonin cream which worked well for me. I’m not a fan of taking pills so I like that this is a cream and is easy to apply.

    maxasorb b12

    – Dosage- 320 mcgs of vitamin B12, 120 mcgs vitamin B3(niacin), plus 10 mcgs of folate

    – Vitamin B12 reduces nitric oxide, an element known to cause inflammation and itching.
    – Not Greasy

    – Topical Vitamin B12 cream has rejuvenating qualities for hydrating dry skin tissues, stimulating growth of new skin cells and preventing wrinkles caused by aging.
    – Helps soothe dry, itchy, or irritated skin patches from eczema, psoriasis, or other skin rash

    How to use:
    Rub 2 full pumps onto skin once a day , or as needed

    maxasorb b12

    My thoughts:

    When I first used it I was surprised to see the cream was a pink color. As I was rubbing it in you could smell the peppermint. It was refreshing and kind of perked me up. The cream goes on smoothly and absorbs quickly without leaving skin feeling sticky or greasy. It has coconut oil in it so my skin was really soft. I liked putting this on in the afternoon when I sometimes hit that afternoon slump and need to be a little more energized. I enjoyed using this cream but not sure if I would get it again. Maybe I was expecting more from it because the melatonin cream I tried from this company I had great results. It did help perk me up, made me more alert, and a little more focused for a small amount of time after I applied the cream. It also left my skin feeling really smooth & soft. It is worth it to try it out though, everyone is different.

    I received this product from Vita Sciences for review purposes. All opinions are my own.

    Get clean with Cottonelle Mega Roll

    Cottonelle is my favorite toilet paper brand. It’s strong, durable, soft, and leaves me feeling clean.

    Recently Crowdtap sent me Cottonelle Ultra ComfortCare Mega Roll 12 pack.
    Cottonelle Mega Roll

    Why is it a mega roll? Its 4 rolls in 1 ! So in one pack of 12 it is 48 rolls! What does that mean for you? Buying toilet paper less and changing the roll not as much.
    Don’t worry though, it will still fit in your toilet roll holder.

    Cottonelle Mega roll size

    Just look at the difference between another brand and Cottonelle.
    332 2-ply sheets per roll

    cottonelle ripples

    I like when toilet paper has ripples. I feel like it cleans much better than toilet paper that has nothing. Cottonelle is really soft , almost cloth like. When you first take the roll out of the pack you can feel how cushion like it is. Its durable & strong , you don’t have to worry about it breaking apart..who wants that when wiping? Its absorbent and cleans well.

    So what are you waiting for you bum deserves a little luxury, so go grab a pack of Cottonelle ultacare comfort toilet paper.

    Peach and oatmeal smoothie #SilkCashew #GotitFree


    I love my oatmeal peanut butter smoothies and decided to try something with oatmeal & peaches.

    I used:
    Silk Cashewmilk
    Frozen peaches

    I blended it together and realized it needed something more. Needed to be a little more sweet & flavorful.
    I then added a little sugar, vanilla protein powder, & vanilla extract

    Then drizzled some honey over the top.

    Perfect on this relaxing Sunday afternoon.


    * BzzAgent sent me coupons for free Silk cashewmilk complimentary to try & review.

    Neutrogena Healthy Skin Boosters Facial Cleanser review #NTGAdvocate

    One of my favorite cleansers is made by Neutrogena, so was excited when Crowdtap sent me their new cleanser to try out.

    Neutrogena Crowdtap

    Retails for about $7.99
    Infused with white tea
    Has Vitamin E to help moisturize
    Helps with radiance, evenness, & softness
    Dermatologist tested

    I’ve been using it with my Clarisonic Mia2

    This cleanser doesn’t strip your skin leaving it dry. I hate the feeling after washing your face and it feels tight because the cleanser you just used stripped the oils from your face. Neutrogena healthy skin boosters facial wash left my skin clean & soft. Its good to use every day. I use it at night because I don’t use any cleansers in the morning.

    I loved the scent , its light & refreshing citrus smell.

    A little product goes a long way. You probably could do with half of a pump. It is a good consistency & lathers up nicely. Its tough and gets off all make up but still gentle on the skin. After rinsing it off you will be left with smooth, soft, & moisturized skin.

    I would buy this again.

    Have you seen or used Neutrogena Healthy Skin Boosters Facial Cleanser?

    I’m a member of the Crowdtap Neutrogena® rewards program, and Neutrogena® sent me a sample of its Healthy Skin Boosters to review
