Giveaway: Celebrate Earth Day with the Dark Chocolate Crunch Balance Bars!

balance_bar_dark_chocolate

Earth Day is coming up (the 22nd for those of you who don’t pay attention), and what better way to celebrate than by recognizing a company that’s helping keep the Earth in good shape? Balance Bars, a maker of delicious protein-filled health bars, uses 100% Rainforest Alliance Certified Cocoa in all of their Dark bars. This Certification lets you know that their cocoa beans are grown on sustainably-managed farms that help protect the surrounding water, soil, wildlife, and of course, people.

Gluten-free, these delicious Dark Chocolate Crunch protein bars are a chocolate lover’s dream. Layering smooth, dark chocolate over a crunch cookie base and ending with a dark chocolate coating, this bar is a treat so decadent that you’ll consider having one for dessert! These bars are gluten-free, less than 200 calories, have 4 grams of fiber, and 13 grams of protein.

These definitely met the approval of everyone in my house. Nobody says that it’s quite like a candy bar, but the general agreement is that it tastes a bit like a chocolate granola bar. It’s super chocolate-y, and they’re actually quite delicious. Everybody agrees that they end up fulfilling a craving for chocolate when you want chocolate.

If you want other dark chocolate options, Balance Bar also offers Dark Chocolate Coconut and Dark Chocolate Peanut. Yummy!

Keep Warm During Chilly Spring Months with Blankets from BrylaneHome!

brylane_home_king_sized_blanket (2)

Winter may be over, but the chilly days aren’t over. Despite how much I may try to make them be, the chilly days are going to last throughout the Spring (and it looks like Spring might be lasting quite a long time this year!) In order to reduce my heating bill and stay as comfortable as possible, I usually turn towards blankets.

And I’m sure you can understand – there’s a lot to be said for a “perfect” blanket. What’s perfect for one moment may not be perfect for another moment. What’s perfect for one room might not be perfect for another. It’s weird, but it’s an interesting balancing game that tends to be relatively unique to blankets. For example, I love giant comforters, but they are just too big for the living room while they’re perfect for the bedroom. Smaller throws don’t work for sleeping, but they’re good for staying warm enough in the living room.

It’s a trial and error process to find that perfect blanket too. Some are too hot. Some are too scratchy. Some are (honestly) too ugly. Some aren’t soft enough. Some aren’t big enough. Luckily, though, when it comes to your blanket hunt, you can have your pick and choose from the entire selection at BrylaneHome – and believe me, you want to choose from there! Their blankets are extremely affordable, and once you find a perfect blanket, they offer their blankets in various sizes, so you can order your favorite in a King for the bed while you maybe just want a Throw version for the living room. It makes it so much easier to make sure you always have what you need.

This blanket has been absolutely amazing. I mean, there are no complaints, and it’s the new favorite blanket in my house. One side is lined with that soft, silky fleece material. This doesn’t feel cheap or scratchy either. It’s nice, high-quality, fluffy fleece. The other side is covered in a comforter material that feels comfortable against the skin and doesn’t feel scratchy at all.

This BrylaneHome blanket is pretty much the perfect Spring, Fall, and Summer blanket. It’s not really think enough for frigid winters, but it’s heavy enough to keep you warm without feeling thick and sweaty. It’s light and soft, but it helps trap keep and will definitely keep you warmer in the chilly weather without overheating you. It’s really like the perfect mixture between a heavy winter blanket and a super-light throw. It’s great for sleeping, and if you get one of the larger sizes, it can definitely be shared between two people with no issue.

Now that I’ve challenged you, what blankets are you going to find perfect this Spring season? Make sure you have a great, high-quality blanket that’s going to stay around for a long, long time, and make sure that you stay nice and cozy this chilly season. Who doesn’t want to lower their heating bill, pay less money, and still be super comfortable and happy? I know I will be with my newest BrylaneHome blanket!

Giveaway: Nourish Organic Nail Lacquer Spring Prize Basket!

Nourish Organic-Enriched Nail Polish

Spring season is here, and we all know that means nicer weather, cuter outfits, and more attention to detail as we get ready to rock those skin-baring outfits! For a lot of people, this means regular manicures and pedicures to make sure your hands and toes are ready to be shown. (Of course, you never have to do manicures and pedicures to show your lovely self, but lots of people love the look of cute nail colors!)

However, did you know that most nail polishes include toxic chemicals? If you’re trying to remove a lot of the toxic chemicals from your life, you might be surprised to find that your nail polishes are a cause for concern. Until recently, there haven’t been many alternatives – you just couldn’t wear nail polish if you didn’t want to deal with the toxins.
