Chicken Barley Soup

Though I eat it year round, soup is the best in the colder months.

Chicken Barley Soup

I make my soup different each time depending what I have in the fridge.

I usually make soup the day after I have rotisserie chicken. Since the chicken is gone, I usually don’t put it in my soup. If there is chicken left I put it in a different container and add it in when I make a bowl. Sometimes I want it in my soup, sometimes I don’t.

I start if off first by adding carrots, onion, celery. Dice them up, put some oil in the pan and sautee until almost soft. Add some salt & pepper.
Once done take out of pot and put in a container or bowl.

I switch between :

Adding water to the pot and adding the whole rotisserie chicken. Then add salt, pepper, thyme, onion salt, oregano, garlic powder. Depends what I feel like. My new favorite is Bell’s seasoning ( blend of thyme, rosemary, oregano, sage, ginger, marjoram, & pepper)since it has many herbs & spices in one container.

or

I use chicken broth/stock from a carton ( about 2-3) & add the seasonings.

I then simmer that for maybe an hour.

I take the rotisserie chicken out of the pot.
Skim the top for any fat.
Add the carrots, onion, celery.

Keep tasting to see what seasonings you need.

Once the vegetables are done. I turn it off and make a bowl.

I make rice, pasta, barley in a separate pot. So you can add as much or little as you want. Also when it sits over night it doesn’t suck up the broth.

The one thing I love about soup is you can customize it. Some of my favorites to add to soup are:
mushrooms
spinach
tomato (can of diced tomatoes)
chickpeas
kidney beans
garlic

What are your favorite foods to put in soup?

#SeeForYourself with Pond’s Cleansing Towelettes

Influenster hooked me up, this time with  : POND’S Original Fresh Wet Cleansing Towelettes

I actually use these often so was happy to get them. I also use Pond’s chamomille & white tea wipes as well.

Check out Pond’s website to checkout their other products.

These wipes are great for taking make up of f and cleansing your face. What I like about them is the towelettes are soft & gentle on the skin but tough enough to get all your make up off…including pesky mascara! Plus you only need one wipe. As you can see they have texture to them to really get off all the impurities, dirt, & make up.

Key ingredients:

  • Vitamin E—Known to prevent water loss from skin and help promote overall skin health.
  • Triple Anti-Oxidant complex—Helps to revitalize & refresh skin.

PondsTowelettes

Afterwards your skin feels soft , moisturized, & clean. With no residue left on your face. They have a fresh scent that isn’t overpowering. Easy to use and the pack easily seals so your wipes stay wet & fresh.

 

Ponds Wipes Collage

They are perfect for traveling and even good to have by your bed. You know for those lazy days where you just are comfortable and don’t want to get up.

Another great thing is these are affordable for a 30 count they are $4-5

 

What are you waiting for, try these and #SeeForYourself

 

I received this products complimentary from Influenster for review purposes. All opinions are my own.

 

 

O.B Pro Comfort Tampons Review #obPROCOMFORT

You head down the personal hygeine aisle and there are shelves stacked with different options of tampon. Scented, Non Scented, no applicator, applicator, plastic or card applicator, super, regular,lite , ect.
I have a few different brands I use depending on what is on sale when I need them. Recently Smiley360 sent me O.B pro comfort tampons. I’ve heard of these and even tried them once or twice in the past but have never been a frequent user.

ObTamponsKit

The first thing you notice is the size.
OBTamponsCollage

This is one of my regular brands I use. 18 count & O.B Pro Comfort 18 count pack regular brand.
Why the difference? Well O.B Pro Comfort tampons don’t have an applicator. It is wrapped in plastic so it stays sanitary. Easier to carry and less waste.

obtampons
They even sent me a cute plastic case to keep a few in, to be prepared.

O.B tampons actually launched in Europe before it caught on here in the U.S.
With O.B tampons not having an applicator they say it will help wearing a tampon be more comfortable. Most applicators are straight but the vagina is curved. Finger tip insertion allows you to follow the natural curve of the vaginal canal where it will be most comfortable for your body.

Will it be messy? It shouldn’t be. There is a little ‘finger pocket’ to protect your finger.

Proper way to use it?
Make sure you hands are washed.
Grab your sealed O.B tampon & unwrap it.
Next grab the string and pull it tight left to right. This widens the bottom and creates the ‘finger pocket’.
Place index finger in finger pocket while using your thumb & middle finger to hold the tampon.

Check here for their user guide

Finding the right fit
Below is a graph that shows a typical woman’s flow pattern during her period. It is usually heaviest the first 3 days so you may want to you a higher absorbency tampon those days.

The reason O.B tampons protect so well, even with their small size is because they expand to fit your body & fluid lock grooves to protect against leaks. Fluid lock grooves guide the fluid inside the core for up to 8 hours of protection.

Where to buy
CVS, Target, Walmart, Amazon, Walgreens are a few places to look.
You can also head to their website O.B Tampons

OBTampon

My thoughts:
I must say the whole not having an applicator turned me off from really using these. Plus I learned I wasn’t quite using them right when I used them in the past. I missed the step about moving the string to create the finger pocket. I like that they are small & compact so they are easy to put in your purse, pocket…anywhere. I am also a fan that these have less waste than my normal tampons since they don’t have a plastic applicator, the box is small, and so is the wrapper. So its better for the environment.
A little TMI but I did notice the how the fluid lock grooves works to guide the fluid to the core of the tampon to prevent leaks.
These weren’t as bad as I thought. O.B tampons are comfortable, easy to use, & comfortable. I don’t know if I will switch completely to o.b tampons. If I see a good deal I might just pick these up instead , have them in my purse for emergencies ( since they are so small), or use them for my lighter days.

What do you use to stay protected during your period?
