Vivra Bar 6-Pack Review & Giveaway!


The holidays are a time to bond with your family and friends, listen to joyful music, exchange gifts with people you love, eat delicious home cooked meals, decorate your home with care, and eat lots of yummy sweets. During Christmas you don't want to just fill up with any old sugary junk, that's what Halloween is for. This time of the year, you want to give and receive truly decadent chocolate treats.

Vivra Bar makes a great chocolate bar that's a perfect choice for a stocking stuffer or gift for the foodie on your list. Believe me, one bite into the Vivra Bar and they will be thanking you left and right.


I received two Vivra Bars to try out. They were wrapped beautifully in a big silky red bow. This was definitely a gift I couldn't wait to dig into.

The Vivra Bar contains all natural ingredients, real artisan chocolate, and lots of wholesome goodness. Inside the bar is a yummy mix of oats, cherries, golden raisins, cranberries, coconut, almonds, walnuts, pepitas, sunflower seeds, agave, and apricots, all covered in premium mouth-watering dark chocolate.


The blend of all the different flavors of nuts and fruits dance on my tongue. It is so delicious, I'm having a hard time not eating it all up as I write this. I like that most of the bar is natural healthy ingredients and it's only covered in a thin veil of dark chocolate. It's just the right amount of sweetness, and not a sugary overload.  I usually feel sick to my stomach after eating an entire chocolate bar in one sitting, but with Vivra Bar I feel refreshed, like I just ate the best granola bar of my life.

The presentation of the Vivra Bar is just as special as the treat itself. Each bar comes in it's own little box, and is wrapped in luxurious gold paper. Once you take the Vivra Bar out, the word "Enjoy!" is revealed on the bottom of the box. It will surely make the recipient of this delicious gift feel like a million bucks.

Giveaway!
Thanks to the good people at Vivra, one lucky Glamour Girl Reviews reader will win a 6-Pack of Vivra Chocoate Bars (ARV: $20).

Trusted Health Products the Runner's Choice Review & Giveaway!


I'm back with another Trusted Health Products Review! If you haven't heard of Trusted Health Products they are a company that produces healthy natural alternatives to common beauty and health products such as toothpaste, breath spray, moisturizer, pain relief, and more.

There are so many products out there that we put into and on our bodies that are full of dangerous and toxic chemicals. Who knows what kind of effect this could have on our health. That is why I love Trusted Health Products. With them I know that what I'm putting on my skin is safe, because their products are all natural and made with only the purest ingredients. All of their products are GMO-free with absolutely no additives of any kind.

Not only are their products natural, but they are also very effective. I've reviewed OraMDBeautiful MoisturizerShake the Crave, and Botanical Splash, and so far, I've always been very pleased with everything I've tried from them.


This time I received a bottle of The Runner's Choice. This product claims to be a foot massage in a bottle. It helps relieve the discomfort of sore feet. It's designed for people who jog 3 miles or more at a time or for people who are on their feet all day.

The Runner's Choice is scientifically formulated with 100% natural botanical oils of almond, eucalyptus, eucalyptol, wintergreen, peppermint, and spearmint.

I was excited to try this product, because giving foot massages to Matt has become a daily occurrence. He's on his feet for very long hours, and his feet are very sore after a long day's work. I figured that between a foot rub and the botanical oils in The Runner's Choice, his feet would feel much better.

The oils in the Runner's Choice made giving the massage much easier. Matt said that his feet felt a lot better afterward.

Today, after showering, I noticed that my feet are starting to get really roughed up. I haven't had a pedicure in awhile, so my feet aren't looking too pretty. I gave my self a nice soothing foot massage, and applied an ample amount of The Runner's choice into my palms and applied them all over my feet. My feet felt so much better, and I felt so pampered like I just left the spa. I put on a pair of comfy socks, and enjoyed letting the oils soak into my dry skin. My feet feel so much softer now. 

For a limited time, the manufacturer is willing to offer my readers one FREE bottle. They said they would love to have my readers try out The Runner’s Choice and agreed to send one bottle FREE if my readers would pay a minimal shipping and handling charge. This is a one-time only offer! Click here to get your FREE bottle now!

Thanks to Trusted Health Products THREE lucky Glamour Girl Reviews readers will win a bottle of The Runner's Choice (ARV: $20)!

Virgil's Soda & Flying Cauldron Butterscotch Beer Review & Giveaway!


I try to avoid sugary soft drinks that are full of unhealthy chemicals. So, I usually just end up drinking water all the time. Water is great and all, but it can get really boring. Sometimes I just want a beverage with a little flavor to go with my meal. That is why I was thrilled when I found out about Reed's sodas. Reed's makes beverages and confections using very old-fashioned, natural methods and wholesome, fresh ingredients. All of Reed's drinks are brewed, just the way beverages were made long before modern soft drinks existed. 

Some of their beverage lines that you may have heard of include Virgil's Soda, Reed's Ginger Brews, Reed's Culture Club Kombucha, Sonoma Sparkler, China Cola, and Flying Cauldron Butterscotch Beer.


I received Virgil's Orange Cream Soda, Cream Soda, Real Cola, Root Beer, Black Cherry Cream Soda, Dr. Better, and Flying Cauldron Butterscotch Beer.

All of the Virgil's sodas are micro brewed and made with all natural ingredients such as purified carbonated water, unbleached cane sugar, caramelized unrefined cane sugar, citric acid, herbs, and spices. They don't contain gluten, preservatives, caffeine, GMO's, or artificial anything.

All of the sodas are so good, I can't choose a favorite. I'm a big fan of cream soda, so I loved the great variety of cream sodas Virgil's makes. Virgil's Cream Soda is perfection, just the way I want cream soda to taste. The Orange Cream Soda is just like taking a bite out of a creamsicle. The Black Cherry Cream Soda deliciously combines my two favorite flavors.

The Root Beer is another great tasting soda that tastes even better than the competitors, but thankfully doesn't contain any of the bad stuff. The Real Cola doesn't taste like regular cola that I'm used to, rather it tastes a bit like black licorice, it must be the spices. I really enjoyed Dr. Better as well, it tastes like a combination of cola and root beer.


The Flying Cauldron Butterscotch Beer isn't really a beer, but a brewed butterscotch flavored cream soda. It's so sweet and delicious, it's magical. I love the labels on the bottle, it would be perfect for serving at parties. 

If you are interested in trying any of these beverages, you can find them at Fresh Market, Whole Foods, and most natural food stores, as well as selected grocery stores in your area. To find out which retailers near you carry them, check out their store locator.

Giveaway!
Thanks to Reed's Inc. one lucky Glamour Girl Reviews reader will win an assorted 6-pack of Virgil's Sodas!

Save up to 90% on your textbooks by renting them at CampusBookRentals!


When you're in college money can be really tight, and you need to save money every chance you get. Aside from classes, one of the biggest expenses for college kids is textbooks. I never knew that a book could have a price tag in the triple digits until I went to college. That's a lot of moola! What's even worse is you're spending all of that money on something you will only use once. Believe me, once your classes are over, you are never going to want to open up your textbooks again.

Thankfully, you can easily avoid paying full price for textbooks by renting them. A great place to rent textbooks is CampusBookRentals.com, by renting your textbooks from them, you can save 40% to 90% on your textbooks, compared to book store prices.

What's even better is you don't have to worry about spending countless amounts of money on shipping those heavy books back and forth, because shipping is free both ways! They even send you a bubble envelope with a prepaid USPS label attached every time you rent a book from them, so you can easily and conveniently ship it right back for free.


Another great thing about CampusBookRentals is that they allow you to highlight inside the textbooks you rent! This is pretty awesome, considering most book rental programs are very picky about what condition the books are in when they receive them back. This would have been a life saver for me when I was in college. I remember when I took my Human Anatomy and Physiology class, I highlighted almost my entire book! It was just one of those things that helped me study.

Some other great perks of renting your textbooks at CampusBookRentals are:
  • Conveniently order your textbooks online.
  • Rent your textbooks without the risk of your books becoming devalued by the end of the semester.
  • Flexible Renting Periods.
  • If you want to keep your books at the end of the semester, just pay them the difference and the books are all yours. 
  • If you change your mind or don't end up needing the books, you have 21 days to return them for a full refund.
  • They donate to Operation Smile, an incredible organization that forever changes children’s lives through reconstructive cleft lip surgeries, for every textbook rented.
If you already made the mistake of purchasing your textbooks, don't worry, they still have your back! Their new RentBack program allows you to rent your textbooks out to other students. This is a much more profitable option compared to selling them. You can make 2-4x the amount of money by renting them out!

My custom made Bridesmaid Lehenga from Cbazaar

Being a bridesmaid is never easy. And to top that finding a perfect bridesmaid lehenga in a far away land is even more challenging. The wedding season was here and my best friend was getting married. But my worries was finding the perfect bridesmaid dress in time.

Cbazaar came to my rescue. Cbazaar is an online Indian ethnic fashion store with alluring collections of Indian saree online, salwar suits, lehengas, anarkalis, sherwanis & kids wear. With too many options to choose from I found this DIY page where it had an extensive collection of Bollywood vogue. The thought of replicating Bollywood fashion sounded appealing and that’s where my search for the perfect bridesmaid lehenga started.

It was just not limited to the catalog but can be customized in terms of design as well. Found an intricately designed lehenga with a backless choli. I was skeptical on how it would turn out. But Cbazaar’s designers assured me that I would be the perfect brides maid. It didn’t take long for the designers to understand what I was looking for. They sent over a few sketches for me to choose from. And in that I found the stunning piece I could own in just few days.

With few changes in the fabric I was all set to go . With the assurance from Cbazaar that the lehenga would be ready and delivered in the mentioned date I took up my bridesmaid duties. As promised , arrived my bridesmaid lehenga & thanks to Cbazaar , the lehenga was a clear winner & I was a happy bridesmaid.

The service of Cbazaar is something worth mentioning. Right from new collections changing everyday , to the coordination in-house, the price match option & the prompt delivery is Cbazaar’s specialty. Every customer is treated royally. They have excellent designers who cater to individual needs & customer support who give prompt updates on whats happening.

Now my search for Indian ethnic wear abroad has come to an end with Cbazaar. Away from home, knowing the ethnic fashion trends in Bollywood, getting them customized to perfection, delivered worldwide with comfort has made me a big fan of Cbazaar. Thanks to Cbazaar.
