Zone Perfect Nutrition Bar Review

zoneperfect logo

So, in the past month and a half, I've lost 20 lbs, YAY!

What have I done? I wake up at 5:30 every morning to walk or jog, I've cut most of the junk out of my life, and I try to keep my calorie intake at about 1,500.

To help me keep my calorie intake at a managed level, but still give myself a treat, I started buying Zone Perfect bars from Costco, they're about $17 for a box of 24 (much cheaper then if you buy them in a store); you get 12 peanut butter and 12 chocolate fudge graham.

They are absolutely delicious, I use them as a meal replacement and have one for either breakfast or lunch. The peanut butter flavor tastes like a peanut butter cup with crispies in it and the fudge graham tastes like a s'more made with cinnamon graham crackers.

Zone Perfect Nutrition Bars are filling and satisfy my sweet tooth, while giving me the nutrition my body needs. So, if you're looking for something to help you in your weight loss or fitness journey, give these bars a try, they're much better then a candy bar and highly recommended.

H&A Quality(Quick-E) Headlight Restoration Kit Review

Headlight Restoration Kit Review

My husband had bought a used car last year and the headlights were very yellowed, to the point they were almost worthless while driving at night, so..dangerous. He was actually thinking about buying new headlights, which is a couple hundred dollars.

Instead of him buying new headlights, I decided to apply and test H&A Quality(Quick-E) Headlight Restoration Kit this winter. Yes, I'm very late in writing a review, but living in Vermont the winters are pretty bitter and today is the first predictable nice day we've had.

The H&A Quality(Quick-E) Headlight Restoration Kit restores your headlights, from dirty, foggy, scratched, or yellowed headlights, in 3 easy steps, there's nothing abrasive, no endless buffing and polishing, absolutely no skills needed, anyone can do it and in less than a minute!
The kit includes two cleaning cloths (one for each front headlight), a drying cloth, a polishing wipe, glove, and instructions. Using the kit is very easy, just clean each headlight with the cleaning wipes, dry them off with the drying cloth, then use the polishing wipe, BAM done, and with a VERY noticeable difference.

So, I didn't get any before pictures because my husband put huge doubts in my mind that the restoration kit would NOT work, that the headlights were too far gone. The ONE time I listen to him...he was totally wrong.

Even after just wiping them down with the cleaning cloth I started noticing a big difference, but o-m-g after using the polishing wipe, they were like new, even cleaner then my new car's headlights. I am honestly amazed with this product and so was my husband. 

I would completely recommend this product, 100%. It's VERY easy to use, it costs about $20, but hey that's a lot cheaper then replacing the headlights or bringing your car somewhere to get them cleaned, and most importantly it works

I received this product for free in exchange for an honest review, all my opinions are my own.

Almondina Review & Giveaway

I was contacted by Almondina to see if I would like to review their new line of products on my blog...Well of course I did!

Almondina sent me a variety box of their newest snacks, Toastees. Almondina cookies have been on the market for over a quarter of a century. Toastees are a new snack/cookie, that is the first product introduced by the next generation of the Almondina family. The flavors included in my sample pack were:

  •  Coconut Orange Almond
  •  Cranberry Almond
  •  Sesame Almond

So, I have a dirty secret, I am addicted to cookies, I can say no to pastries, cakes, ice cream, even a candy bar, but I can never say no to a cookie (unless it's oatmeal raisin). After trying Almondina Toastees, I could probably trade out my very bad for me cookies with these almond thins. Why? Because they have an amazing taste.
  • The Coconut Orange, tastes like an orange Milano cookie, they're freaking delicious. I can't taste the coconut, but the orange is noticable.
  • When eating the Sesame Almond Toastees, the first thing I taste is vanilla and the after taste is sesame flavor, they are surprisingly yummy.
  • As for the Cranberry flavor, they have a mild sweet cranberry flavor. I know it's cranberry, but it reminds me of Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia.
Aside from their delicious taste. They are a healthy alternative to regular cookies. Toastees run about 65 to 69 calories per serving (7 pieces), usually after 1 or 2 servings my cravings are settled and I can put them down, which is really good for me. They have no added fat, no added salt, zero preservatives, and are dairy free. The dairy free part is huge for me because my daughter is intolerant and it's so hard finding a yummy snack for her. \

I highly recommend Almondina Toastees, they are delicious, good for you, and a lower calorie snack alternative. I received samples in exchange for an honest review, my opinions are my own. 

To find a store near you that sells Almondina Toastees, Click Here. They can also be purchased on Amazon and Almondina.com.

Almondina has also given me the opportunity to host a giveaway! Enter using the Rafflecopter below for your chance to win a prize pack, with a value of $40. Open to Continental 48 States.

Maybelline Brow Define + Fill Duo Review

I went to dinner with my sister a little while ago and the first thing I noticed was her eyebrows. Of course me being who I am, I blurted out, "Did you do your eyebrows?!" and her being her, "Yeah, want me to show you?"

While I didn't have her show me, I did start thinking about my eyebrows. They're half blonde and slightly sparse. In some lighting it, and usually pictures, it doesn't look like I even have eyebrows. Well, I wanted to change that, especially after seeing how good my sister's eyebrows looked.

I went to Rite Aid and started perusing the makeup aisle. Under a sign saying 40% off, I found Maybelline Brow Define in Blonde.
One side is like an eyeliner and the other end is a soft sponge containing filler powder. It's super easy to use, I'm a total novice when it comes to makeup and didn't mess it up, all you do is:

Step 1. Define and set eyebrows with the defining wax pencil using short and light strokes.
Step 2. Fill in with the powder along the natural brow contour.

And bam, you're done and your eyebrows look great. Below are head shots showing before and after of what my eyebrows looked like. I HIGHLY recommend grabbing a Maybelline Brow Define + Fill Duo pencil if you have eyebrow issues like me.
