Crum Creek Mills Soy Bites Breadsticks Review!


Crum Creek is a company that makes a wide variety of snacks and supplements. They have trail mix, rice pops, bars, raw fruits, sweets, coconut oil, fish oil, chia seeds, and much more! One of their unique snacks that I couldn't wait to try are their Soy Bites Breadsticks, a delicious, protein-packed mini-breadstick snack.

The Soy Bites were created by Ara Yeramyan, PhD, a gourmet cook and scientist with a passion for inventing delicious, nutritious foods. He created the Soy Bites right out of his kitchen, making everyday foods even better.

Some of the benefits of Soy Bites include:
  • Completely nutritious without sacrificing taste
  • Vegan
  • Made with non-GMO soy protein
  • No artificial flavors or preservatives
  • Conveniently packed in single-serve bags
  • A very healthful snack for kids in their lunchbox or at home
Their full list of ingredients for the Sesame Soy Bites is: Unbleached wheat flour, soy protein, sesame seeds, expeller pressed soy oil, yeast, malt syrup, baking powder, wheat gluten, and salt. I'm always impressed by a short ingredient list with all recognizable foods that I can actually pronounce!


I received 20 bags of Crum Creek Soy Bites! I was able to try out all four of their flavors; Remarkable Rosemary and Garlic, Outrageous Onion, Superb Sesame, and Everything. 

The Soy Bites are crunchy little breadsticks that can be quite addicting. Once I open up a bag, I probably won't stop munching on them until the bag is empty. I always eat them on their own, but they would be phenomenal dipped in hummus or your preferred dipping sauce. 


My favorite flavor of them all is the Everything, a blend of poppy seeds, sesame seeds, onion, garlic and salt. I love them because they are the most flavorful. They taste a lot like an everything bagel. My 2nd favorite is the Outrageous Onion, it tastes just like an onion bagel, go figure. The Superb Sesame comes in 3rd place, because I like it, but it's very plain. The only flavor I didn't care for at all is the Rosemary and Garlic. I would have probably enjoyed it, if only it tasted more like garlic and less like rosemary. The rosemary flavor was just too overwhelming for my personal taste. 

Overall, the Crum Creek Mills Soy Bites are a great little snack for packing in lunches, on the go, for dips at parties, or for casual snacking in between meals. You can purchase them at CrumCreek.com

So, I decided to make the hard cover book dedicated on that outing. They had plenty of animal shapes to choose from for the cover. I decided on the elephant, since we spotted them at the Zoo. I then chose a pretty green and blue background for the front and back cover.

With the smaller soft cover book I decided to add pictures from our trips to the Circus, Monster Jam, and the Everglades.


I had so much fun customizing these books until they were perfect. I was able to add as many photos as I wanted and rearranged them as I pleased.

Murad Age Reform Day Regimen and Instant Radiance Eye Cream Review!


Murad is a skin care company that was founded by the world–renowned dermatologist Howard Murad, M.D. Murad was the first authentic doctor–developed brand in America. Since then Dr. Murad's award-winning formulas have helped millions to resolve their skin issues.

Murad has skin care products specifically made for all different skin types and problems. Whether your skin concern are fine lines and wrinkles, acne, dark spots, black heads, or clogged pores they have products for you.

That is why I am so excited and honored to be considered a Murad Brand Ambassador. As a Murad Brand Ambassador I will be receiving lots of amazing skin care goodies, so that I can try them out and tell you exactly what I think of them.


To start, Murad sent me an introductory kit that blew me away. I received two of Dr. Murad's books and 4 skin care products that were specifically chosen for me based on my skin concerns and needs.

I've just started reading the books they sent me, but they are really interesting. The Water Secret is full of valuable information on how important eating water is. Everyone already hears all the time that we need to drink more water, but in The Water Secret Dr. Murad reveals that you could actually be dehydrated even if you drink a gallon of water a day! That's because the water is going right through you, your body needs to retain the water Dr. Murad tells you how.

Creating a Healthy Life is a book that would be perfect to keep on your coffee table. It's beautifully illustrated with Dr. Murad's artwork and has quotes and information on how to live a better life on every page.


The skin care products I received is the Instant Radiance Eye Cream, and the Age Reform Day Regimen, which consists of Refreshing Cleanser, Complete Reform, and Perfecting Day Cream,

I really like how all Murad products are labeled with a number on each bottle that signifies what order you need to apply them. Skin care with all it's serums and moisturizers, can get pretty confusing sometimes, so I appreciate the clarity.

The first step in this regimen is the Refreshing Cleanser. This cleanser is gentle and hydrating while still giving you a deep clean. After using it, my skin feels very clean and soft. It comes in a really big tube, and the product lathers, so you don't have to use a lot. I think it will last me quite a while.

The next step is to apply the Complete Reform. This product firms, exfoliates and provides softer, smoother skin day and night. It's supposed to increase firmness 61% after just one application. I agree that my skin feels more firm and tight after application as well as more hydrated.

The third step is the Perfecting Day Cream. This cream not only moisturizes, but it also protects your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays, as it contains SPF 30. It has the same consistency and scent as sunscreen, but it doesn't leave your skin as oily. My skin feels supremely moisturized after application.

Lastly, I apply the Instant Radiance Eye Cream. This cream is supposed to minimize the appearance of dark circles by 30% in 15 minutes and 48% after two weeks. It's very thick and creamy. I apply it under my eyes, on my lids, and on my brow bone. Right away I noticed my under eyes appearing lighter and smoother after application.

At first, it dried out one of my eyelids and caused the skin to flake. However, I kept using and my skin became used to the cream, after a few days the flakiness cleared up. So, if you experience this, I strongly suggest that you stick with it, because you will be happy that you did. Another thing I would like to note, is that it sometimes stings in small spots, usually where I tweeze my eyebrows. Be careful when applying it, because even though it's for the eye area, if it gets in your eye it will burn. 

Overall, I am loving this line of skin care products. It's one of my favorites. All of the products work so well together and on my skin. My skin has been looking healthier and more radiant than ever.

Chewy.com Primal Lamb Liver Snaps Dry Roasted Dog Treats Review!


I received another awesome bag of treats from Chewy.com this month! Chewy.com is a website that sells pretty much everything you need if you are a dog or cat owner. They have pet food, health products, toys, cleaning supplies, grooming products, leashes, collars, pet beds, crates, and much more. Best of all, all of the pet food and treats that they sell are natural and healthy for your furry friend.


I received a bag of the Primal Dry Roasted Liver Snaps. They sound delicious don't they? Well, they would make your mouth water if you were a dog. These treats give your dog what they crave, pure meat. Yes, the only ingredient in this treat is lamb liver. That means they are grain-free, gluten-free, and great for pets with allergies. This is especially impressive among the countless commercial dog treats and food that don't even have meat as a primary ingredient. 

You also don't have to worry that these treats were made in some factory in China, because all Primal Treats use USDA meats, poultry and game raised in the United States without antibiotics or added hormones. 

Some of the great benefits of Primal Treats are:
  • Single-source protein
  • Healthy treats for dogs
  • High-protein snack
  • No preservatives
  • No added salt or sugar

 As you can see these Dry Roasted Liver Snaps are very similar to the look and feel of jerky. They even have a very tangy and flavorful scent like jerky. I could almost eat them, Almost, but they aren't for humans, and I think Zooey might get mad at me for eating all her treats.

What does Zooey think of the Primal Lamb Liver Snaps? She loves them! She got one whiff of them and she couldn't wait to get her paws on them. I gave her one good piece, and she ate it right up. Although these do take a little bit of gnawing and chewing on them to get them down, since she's a small dog, but that didn't keep her from making them disappear.

Overall, Zooey and I couldn't be happier with the Primal Lamb Liver Snaps. She loves the way they taste, and I love that they are natural and healthy. You can purchase a 4 oz bag at Chewy.com for $8.99!

You can follow Chewy.com on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and Pinterest.

Strawesome Glass Drinking Straws Review!


I know this might seem a little odd, but I always have to drink out of a straw. I just find drinking out of a straw a much more enjoyable experience than drinking straight out of a glass. I'm sure I'm not the only one! Buying plastic straws all the time, can be expensive after awhile. Sure, the bag may only cost $3, but if you have to buy them every couple of weeks, it sure does add up.

More importantly, it's not good for the environment to keep throwing away plastic straws every time I have a drink. Thinking about all of those little plastic straws ending up in a landfill somewhere, makes me feel a bit guilty.

Thankfully there's a healthier, more environmentally friendly alternative to plastic straws. Strawesome is a family owned and operated company based in Michigan that makes reusable glass straws. Their straws come in a variety of attractive and fun colors, designs, and styles. They have long and short, bent and straight, wide and skinny straws. Whether you need a thin straw for sipping on cocktails, or a wider straw for smoothies or bubble teas, Strawesome has got you covered.


I received the Lotus Flower Barely Bent Long Straw. I like this straw because it's long enough for any size glass, and the slight bent makes for a very easy and comfortable drinking experience. I also love the beautiful design. It's decorated with a center dot that is swirled with bright greens and accented by 4 crystal clear blue dots. The entire straw is a gorgeous light blue color. 

This is my first time drinking out of a glass straw, and I love it. It's so much better than drinking out a flimsy plastic straw. The glass is so much smoother and drinking out of it is more relaxing and fun. 


All of the glass straws at Strawesome are handmade by artist Daedra Surowiec, making them a unique, functional work of art. The straws are made of borosilicate glass tubing which is the strongest commercially available glass. To give you an idea, it is the same kind of glass that Pyrex is made from. Borosilicate glass is also non-toxic, so you can feel confident when drinking hot or cold liquids that no toxins are leaching into your beverage. 

Some other benefits of glass straws from Strawesome:
  • Annealed (slowly cooled to make it tougher and less brittle) so that it is dishwasher safe.
  • The decoration allows you to distinguish which straw is yours and also stops it from rolling on flat surfaces.
  • Handmade in the USA
  • 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you don’t love your straw, you can send it back for a full refund.
  • Lifetime guarantee against breakage. If you break it they will replace it.
Overall, I love my glass drinking straw from Strawesome. It's eco-friendly, toxin free, gorgeous, and easy to clean. What more could I ask for out of a Straw?

You can keep up with Strawesome by following them on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, YouTube, and Instagram
