Conscious Box July 2014 Review & Code for FREE Box!



Conscious Box is a monthly subscription box that features eco-friendly/natural products. Items range from healthy snacks, to natural toothpaste, and everything in between. There are 3 different boxes to choose from: The Vegan Box (which I always get), The Gluten-Free Box, and the Classic Box.

Boxes were always $19.95/month, but they’ve recently announced 2 new box options: The Plus (as low as $16.95/mo) and the Taster (as low as $6.95/mo). The “new & improved” boxes promise to include more full sized items, which is always a good thing.

Let’s see what was inside July’s (vegan) box! [Read more…]

Plans are all available for a one-time purchase, or you can choose to subscribe and enjoy discounted pricing.

I was recently sent their “Kickstarter” sampler which includes 7 full meals, as well as 7 snacks. Let’s see what I got! [Read more…]

Gourmet Body Treats beauty box July review & giveaway

Gourmet Body Treats is small, family-owned beauty/cosmetics company dedicated to providing quality products that are not only effective, but also 100% cruelty-free.

They offer a large selection of natural body care products and cosmetics including mascara, lipstick, body scrubs, soaps, and more. They even have biodegradable pencil sharpeners (I didn’t even know those existed!). All of their products are vegan, cruelty free, kid-safe, and made right here in the USA (Texas, to be exact.) To show how seriously they take the whole “all natural” thing, they actually have a list of ingredients that they’ll never use posted right on their website. When it comes to using pure, plant-based ingredients, they don’t mess around! [Read more…]

Super Easy Vegan Chocolate Clusters Featuring Blue Diamond Almonds



I was recently sent two packages of Blue Diamond Almonds for the purpose of writing a post that incorporated them into my summer activities/festivities.

As the due date approached, I was at a total loss as to what I would post about. Leisurely snackin’ on almonds poolside while basking in the summer sun? (Nope, we don’t even have a pool. And I don’t “bask”.) Hosting a get-together where my guests indulge in decadent appetizers which happen to include a hearty dose of almonds? (Nah… Too much planning.)

When it finally came down to it, I knew I had to do something relatively simple… Something that involved chocolate. And didn’t require any basking.

The answer? Ridiculously Easy Vegan Chocolate Almond Clusters! Woo! [Read more…]
