Just Call Me “Drink Master”

I love when companies send me products and without hesitation, I know exactly what I’m going to do with them. In this case…it was add alcohol. 
Huge THANK YOU to Santa Cruz Organic for sending me this package and also to Moms Meet for always making bad a$$ opportunities happen! 

We aren’t huge juice drinkers in our home mainly because my daughter will not drink it. Weird, right? Whatever, I’m not complaining. I decided to try some “adult drinks” for M and I and just so you don’t think we are alcoholics, I also made a smoothie! 

We were sent two different flavors of the Agua Fresca drinks to try along with lemonade, applesauce pouches which my daughter LOVES, and an adorable cup. Can anyone have enough plastic cups?! Didn’t think so. 


M and I both enjoyed the Mango flavor the most. MMM! He seriously drank it all in one day. Probably not the healthiest choice, but we live dangerously! 
I made a tasty beverage with the lemonade, vodka, peach schnapps, and bubbly water. It was a dash of this and a dash of that, no precise measuring. Because that’s how we roll. And i’m lazy. But it was SO GOOD! Seriously next time you’re making a drink, give this a try. 


For my healthier friends, I did make a smoothie using the pomegranate agua fresca. Pomegranate Agua Fresca, blueberries, and tart cherries. Again, so delicious! 


You can find the Santa Cruz line at most grocery stores, Whole Foods, Walmart, Target….etc. Have you ever tried Santa Cruz Organic? Let me know in the comments below if you have! Also, what drinks are you making this week?! Tag me on instagram to share! @bombshellwifelife

Fitness Update & E-Hydrate!

Trying to “get into shape” is sometimes a LOT harder than it seems. AMIRIGHT?! Somedays I’m ON. Gym, water, healthy food, BAM!  Somedays I want 42 cheeseburgers. And eat a lot of chocolate. 


But nonetheless, we’ve been trying to get into shape! It’s been going surprisingly well and M and I are both losing weight! But more than that, his major gout flare up has been calming down and my afternoon crash is going away. 

With getting into fitness also comes trying to find supplements if you chose to go that route. I don’t know why but I really love trying new protein powders/types. It’s like a fun game for me. I usually mix them up in my morning shakes or have a shake after the gym. E-Hydrate actually sent us these awesome protein powders to try and guys, this is the coolest thing I’ve seen! Simple, accessible, delicious. 

BUT! I WANT TO TALK ABOUT SOMETHING FIRST!
A comment I get A LOT is “Wow, you get so much stuff for free! How awesome!” Guys. It really is cool. HOWEVER. Not everything is wonderful and perfect and YAY I LOVE THIS! This protein powder actually tastes awesome and I LOVE the packaging of it. I also got sent some energy/nutrition drink mixes and they just weren’t for me. I’m trying to say this in a tasteful way without being “snobby” but still being REAL.
I just didn’t love the taste. BUT, to each their own. 😉 

Onto the protein powder…!
It seriously has the coolest packaging. It is so simple to take to the gym and fill up after because of this sleek design. And I’m not kidding when I say the taste is AWESOME. They even have kids mixes! I know my daughter loves being “just like mommy”, so having one of these just for her was perfect! 

(FLEXIBLE PACKAGING)

(FILLED WITH WATER)


If you guys are looking for a fun new product to try, check this out! Get your kids involved, too! They will love it! 
What is your favorite flavor of protein? E-Hydrate even has a CINNAMON ROLL FLAVOR! Hello, amazing! You can even check out your local Target and you might find some there. 😉

HP Instant Ink Review!

{I was excited and humbled for this opportunity to review HP Instant Ink and to receive the HP Envy printer. This product was sent to me for review purposes however ALL opinions expressed in this post are my own and honest.} 

You know you’re an adult when the thought of new printer ink gets you more excited than most things in your day to day life. Am I right?! Let’s be honest, printer ink is important. If you’re a mom/wife/entrepreneur/student or anything in-between i’m sure you use a printer! 

M and I have seriously been trying to buy a printer for a good solid 6 months. We live in small town USA and no where in our town sells ink. Whenever we head to the “big city” it’s never on the forefront of my mind to remember printer ink. Do you know how many times we’ve tried to print something and we can’t because we forget that we’re out of printer ink?! Talk about frustration! 

I love, love, LOVE that with HP Instant Ink, there is an EASY way to make sure you never run out of ink. Remember the whole ‘we live in the middle of nowhere thing’? Having the ink delivered to our door makes this one of the greatest things I have yet to encounter in my adult life. Y’all think i’m kidding? Let’s talk about the plethora of things I plan on printing with my printer! 

COUPONS! Hello! I can now PRINT COUPONS FROM MY HOME! 
Concert tickets. I don’t know why this is such a big deal to me, but I really don’t like concert/game tickets on my phone. I want to be able to physically hold something. I usually will go down to the library and print them from there, but not any more! 
Free printables from Pinterest. I don’t know how many cute things I see on Pinterest that I want to print and I just have to cry at my computer screen because I can’t, until now! 
Can ANY ONE relate to my excitement here?! I truly hope i’m not alone! 

One major thing for us as a family is the unlimited amount of possibilities. M and I truly have a passion for creating business ideas. We love conjuring up ideas and putting those ideas on paper. Recently, M has gone as far as creating his first true business plan. I can’t wait to print it out using our HP Envy printer in hopes of creating a new business and ultimately a lifetime of change and happiness. 

If you know me/follow me, you know that I love Instagram. It’s probably my favorite social media platform. When I knew that HP has a special product called Social Media Snapshots, I about cried from excitement. These truly are my dream come true! They have sticky backs that make it perfect for scrapbooking and the fact that they are compatible with my printer just keeps my excitement running ramped. 


When signing up for HP Instant Ink, there are different plans starting as low as $2.99 a month. Hello, talk about affordable! Depending on how much you print, you can find a plan perfect for you and that fits your needs. Simple enough, huh? Does anyone else see the greatness in this?!


I know when I first started posting about this awesome printer, a lot of people were anxious to hear my thoughts because a lot of people are in the market for a new printer! Well you’re in luck, people! With any purchase of a new HP Printer, you are eligible for 3 months of FREE INK. Want to sign up?! Just CLICK HERE! (I know you want to!) 

I know it’s something small, but I can’t wait to see how our lives change with this printer! What are your favorite things to print at home? I would love to hear about them in the comments and maybe we have something in common! 

Again, thank you so much to HP and Collectively for this opportunity. I am so amazed at the opportunities my blog has brought my way and this is at the top of the most amazing ones.

NoGii Product Review!

{I was sent these products for review purposes, however all opinions are my OWN and are HONEST}

Do you love all things carbs and buttery, flakey, gluten(y) goodness?! Well, this post probably isn’t for you. But nonetheless, I do have to tell you about some of the most delicious treats on the market, whether you’re gluten free or not! Buckle up y’all, this is an exciting one! 

NoGii is a gluten free brand created by Elisabeth Hasselback. Pretty cool, right?! This isn’t just a person who created a brand because of the gluten free craze, she actually has celiac herself and has created a brand for people like herself! Where are my celiac peeps at?! 

Let’s rewind to the day I got this amazing package of products to review in the mail. Can you say “HOLY WOW”?!?! I was amazed at the amount of products! So beyond generous in my opinion! 
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU NoGii! (Four for you!)

Now if you know me, you know I love “bars”. (Is that a slang term? I’m just gonna roll with it.) I love being able to grab something on the go and feeling confident that I will always have a snack in my purse. I bring them to work in the morning, in the afternoons, on car rides, and pretty much everywhere in-between. Me being hungry is not a pretty sight. Just ask my husband. 😉

I have been trying to cut out gluten as much as physically possible so these delectable little treats make it really easy! (Ignore the pizza and cheesy bread I had for dinner tonight.) This whey & quinoa protein powder in my morning smoothies is AMAZING. I honestly didn’t even know they made protein powder with quinoa. Maybe i’m sheltered, maybe i’m not. Either way, I have found what I now use in each of my morning smoothies. 

My two favorite bars were the Cookies & Cream & the Peanut Butter and Caramel bar. It is truly a slice of heaven. Looking for a sweet treat that won’t make you feel terrible about yourself afterwards?! You need these in your life! Not to mention there are TONS of other flavors to choose from! Those are just two of my personal favorites! 🙂 

I know what you’re all wondering…”but how does it TASTE?!” I’m here to say i’ve had my fair share of gluten free foods, and this ranks at the top of the list. Seriously y’all, you won’t regret these. 

Don’t I have a cute helper? 😉 


Want to try some of these for yourself?! Head over to my Instagram and comment on any photo saying which one you’re most interested in trying! I will pick one random person to send a goodie bag to! 
Are you a “bars” person?! What has been your favorite brand/flavor so far? Leave a comment and lets get talkin’!

Monk Fruit In The Raw: Review!

{I was sent this product for review purposes, however ALL opinions are my own. Thank you Moms Meet, the Mom Ambassador Program, and In The Raw for this opportunity}

I feel so blessed with my blog when it comes to being able to review different products! I was especially excited to receive this package in the mail from In The Raw, to review their latest product, Monk Fruit In The Raw!!

I know what a lot of people are thinking…what the heck is a Monk Fruit?! Monk Fruit, also known as Lou Han Guo, is a herbaceous perennial vine of the Cucurbitaceae family, native to southern China and northern Thailand. 

I was pleasantly surprised with how delicious this was in coffee. For some reason I was expecting it to be not as sweet as normal sugar, even though the Monk Fruit In The Raw packs have the same sweetness of about two teaspoons of sugar. 


We are trying to eat a healthier diet in our home, so the zero calorie aspect of these is one of our favorite things. Not to mention it’s delicious in coffee like I stated before. I’m actually drinking some right now as I write this! Are you a coffee drinker? How do you like your coffee?

I also got the bakers bag of Monk Fruit In The Raw and I can’t wait to bake with it and see how things turn out! I’m thinking Christmas treats of some kind! Cookies, bread, candy?! What should it be?!

If you’re looking to try something new in the sugar/sweeteners world, give this a try! I don’t think you will be disappointed. Vegan, naturally gluten free, and zero calories. So many things to love! 
Have you tried anything else from the In The Raw family? I also LOVE their Sugar In The Raw! MMM!

Kupp’ Review!

Eco-friendly. Just for kids. Easy to clean
Do I have your attention yet?!

Let me just say these Kupp’ kids cups are awesome little cups! 
I love fun colors of any cups, plates, or dinnerware so these were perfect to add to our collection! 

When these arrived in the mail baby girl was BEYOND excited! Something SHE could use! 
These Kupp’ reusable, BPA free kids cups came in four colors; blue, orange, green, and red. 

Baby girl loved having a “big kid cup” at the dinner with us. Every night she used one of these she loved saying “LETS CHEERS!” and clinking our glasses together! Adorable, I know. 😉 

I love the small handle grip on these. It makes it perfect for any little hands to use. Also, I felt like the glass was SUPER simple to clean. The Kupp’ was inspired by kids and made by moms. This kid friendly cup is an easier way to let your kids “help” around the kitchen. Placing THEIR cup on the table, cleaning it, and putting it away. Pretty simple, huh?!

These amazing cups can be found on their website HERE, as well as more information about their company and even how to become an affiliate! 


If you have any further questions about these cups, please post a comment below. 
ALSO! I am giving away ONE Kupp’ on my Instagram page if you want to try one of these out for kiddo!

Perfectly Posh {REVIEW} & ONLINE PARTY!

It’s finally here! I’ve finally had a chance to really try all of the products I got sent to me and let me just start off by saying I AM TOTALLY IN LOVE!

If you haven’t seen my first impressions video, head over HERE to watch it! 

Again I am so thankful for Christina and how kind she was to send me all of these products! I was so beyond excited to try them all! I loved that the packaging reminded me of LUSH products, although I’ve never shopped there. HA! 


I talked about this before, but the reason I got this awesome package was because of ‘The Stripper’.(and my mishap with GlamGlow. GRR) I absolutely loved using it. A lot of people wanted me to review it and compare it to the GlamGlow so that’s exactly what I did! 


I seriously loved ALL the products. I wasn’t disappointed in any one of them. I loved the simple, clean scents of everything and of course I loved the chic packaging. 

Christina has been so kind to open up an online party for anyone who wants to order any of these awesome products! If you have questions about any of the products I personally tested, please feel free to ask or if you have general questions, head over to Christina’s Facebook page

Things I will be purchasing due to the fact that I LOVED them:
•Lil Snarky Hand Creme {$9 for 3.0 fl oz}
This stuff was DIVINE. My husband even loved the scent of it. It wasn’t overpowering which we both really enjoyed. The bottle says ‘Exotic Flowers & Sandalwood’ for anyone wondering about the scent. 
•Tree Hugger {$14 for 5 oz}
This was the sugar lip scrub I tried. I’ve been looking for something like this and I just absolutely loved it. The taste was awesome and the benefits were GREAT. There are three other types of lip stubs alongside this one so make sure you check out all 4! 
•Mint For Each Other Bath Bar {$9 for 7 oz}
The smell of this was simply amazing. 

Their catalog is filled with TONS of other amazing things. These are a few of the things i’m looking forward to ordering and trying:
•Fabulous Fizzies Foot Soakers
•Tousled Sea-Salty Hair Spritz
•Any of the Skindelicious Scrumptious Body Butters. All flavors sound wonderful.
•I’ve Been Set-Up! Setting & Refreshing Mist
•Rain Mask Vintage Visage Hydration

Ginny Bakes: Review

{I was sent this product for review however all opinions are my own. Thank you Moms Meet and ginnybakes for this opportunity!}

I am by no means gluten-free, but I am wanting to attempt a 30 day “wheat free” diet. We’ll see how that goes. Nonetheless, my thoughts on gluten free food has always been the same. Boring, tasteless, weird textured foods. But alas, I have found something delicious!


I was sent this amazing box of treats. Yes, ALL of this. Four for you, ginnybakes. (And four for YOU if you get that reference)

Honestly, I wasn’t expecting things to taste that great. Haha. I know, I know, I’m a terrible human being. BUT I’m a sweets lover. I have high expectations. DON’T JUDGE ME.
My favorite thing so far as been the Coconut Oatmeal Cookies. And don’t tell anyone, but I think my husband even likes them too! 

I also made up a batch of the brownies. MMMM! MMM! So delicious. 

I was shocked at how much FLAVOR was in these bad boys! 

If you’re in the market for gluten free options, I would check out this company. 
Are any of you gluten free? How long have you been eating gluten free? What changes in your body have you seen?! 20 Q’s for my readers. My apologies. 😉 

Let me know if you’ve ever tried a ginnybakes treat before or if you try it out! 
I hope each one of you are doing well!

Ology Detergent and MORE: Review

{I was sent this product for review curtsey of a Mom’s Meet group called ‘Mom Ambassadors’, however all opinions are my own}

How many of you moms are interested in safe, yet effective cleaning products with kids in the house? Come on, raise your hands! I know for me personally, I like a product that gets the job done, yet won’t be harmful for my kids. That’s exactly why I LOVED using the Ology products.

Ology is a brand specifically found at Walgreens. They pride themselves in everyday products free of harmful chemicals, no animal-testing, and being from Walgreens they are cost-effective! 
They offer laundry & cleaning supplies, household cleaning supplies, personal well-being products, and products for babies and kids. 

For review purposes, I was sent the All-Purpose Cleaner, the Laundry Detergent, and the Paper Towels. The product I loved the most was the All-Purpose Cleaner

The smell was awesome for being a cleaning product and I really loved how well it cleaned. I did my whole kitchen with this and it really did a great job. 

I also liked the detergent. I got the Ology Stain Fighting 2X Laundry Detergent
I loved that these also had no harsh chemicals in them. This laundry detergent is actually plant based which I found very cool. If you are in need of a HE compatible laundry detergent, this would be right up your ally! 

I also got to review the paper towels
Sadly, I didn’t enjoy the paper towels as much. They are 100% tree free and just simply didn’t get the job done for me. I like a tougher paper towel in my house because we have a lot of big spills and dirty messes. I felt this one broke too easily and didn’t withstand much. 

Overall I loved using these products. I loved knowing I was choosing a safe alternative when it came to cleaning products for my kids. Are you into products like this? Which one would you like to try the most?! Let me know if the comments below! 
I hope everyone is having a great Saturday and you enjoy the rest of your weekend. 🙂

LifeVantage TrueScience: Review

{I am in no way affiliated with this company. This product was sent to me for review purposes, however all opinions are my own.}

I have absolutely loved my time using the LifeVantage TrueScience face wash! 
I will start off saying that each persons skin is different and has different skin care needs. I have relatively dry to combination skin. I also have large areas of discoloration. 
This is the description of the product from the LifeVantage website:
Introducing TrueScience™ with enhanced Nrf2 technologies, a revolutionary beauty system proven in a clinical study to visibly address the signs of aging. This regimen offers instant and cumulative anti-aging benefits.”

I don’t think I have signs of aging, so I didn’t see any huge changes in that area. I did however see my annoying breakouts almost stop completely. I break out heavily around my “monthly time”, but I had virtually zero breakouts in between my cycle while using this product! 

Another amazing thing about this product was the smell. Y’all, this stuff smells AMAZING. Just so refreshing and clean smelling. I loved that when I used this product, it didn’t bother my eyes and actually helped when removing my eye makeup. When using other skincare products, I hate when products leave a “burning” sensation. This didn’t do that at all. My skin felt clean, hydrated, and overall healthy. 

I really don’t have anything bad to say about this face wash. 
LifeVantage has a long running history with their “Protandim”, and now this face wash. 
If you are someone who is looking for a face care system that will help with aging, I would definitely recommend this brand. It is gentle, yet productive. 

If you have ANY further questions about this product, Protandim, or LifeVantage as a whole, please get ahold of my friend Bailey Michael. She is a rockstar with this company and it seriously blows me away what her and her husband accomplish together.
