Food Should Taste Good

(I received a free product in exchange for an honest review.)

Founder Pete Lescoe created Food Should Taste Good, Inc in 2006 with the goal of making a unique new snack with great taste, real ingredients, and sophisticated flavor – the qualities he is most passionate about in food.
With a name that speaks for itself, Food Should Taste Good® chips are made from high quality ingredients. All chip varieties are gluten free, cholesterol free, have zero grams trans fats. They are also certified Kosher. Plus, many varieties are certified vegan.
Made from wholesome ingredients, Food Should Taste Good® chips have been recognized with over 40 awards and are created with real ingredients, zero trans fats, and no cholesterol. Beyond their award winning taste, these chips are certified gluten free and Kosher, and are the perfect anytime snack.
I have been really blown away by these chips. They are so delicious and addictive. They are economical and available throughout the United States including Wal-Mart! They arrived quickly and well packaged on my doorstep!
I love that some of the bags came with suggestions, like pairing the chocolate tortilla chips with peanut butter. That may be obvious to some but I never would’ve thought of that!
My favorate were the chocolate tortilla chips. They are very mild and not super sweet; they just have a hint of dark chocolate and with a bit of salt.

The lime were very good as well. My family loves lime flavored rice and chicken and these were definitely a favorite.   These would be a great thing to try with a favorite cheese, like my personal favorite, Velveeta white queso

I LOVE sweet potatoes, baked sweet potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes pretty much any kind of sweet potatoes, so I loved the sweet potato chips. The texture of these was more like a regular potato chip instead of the fabulous tortilla chips.

This is a company I am happy to support.


Review- Color Me Monthly

(I received a free product in exchange for an honest review)1528455_571556195998_772768412612244968_n

This would be an awesome gift for a manicure- loving teenager or a college student away from home.

For my review, I got Chiffon, a lovely soft warm lavender color. I would have never chosen it for myself but I loved it on my nails.
It was so different, and fresh and spring-like.
The color went on very nicely and dried pretty quickly. It was really impressed by this colors staying power. It didn’t chip or smudge as soon as other polishes.
I will definitely be wearing it like crazy this season, especially since it is perfect for Easter.

I was very pleased with Color Me Monthly!

I really loved this makeup. It was soft silky. I have pretty sensitive skin so I have to be pretty careful on what makeup and skincare I use.
I was so excited to be able to review three colors. It was so hard to choose just three because they were all SO pretty and elegant.
I am almost always in a hurry to do my makeup and I can never seem to find an applicator, so Iove an eyeshadow I can put on quickly with my fingertips!
The first color I tried on was Ambre. Some of you might remember my somewhat failed attempt with Cinna from the Hunger Game series gold eyeliner. Since that fiasco, I’ve searched for gold eye shadows and products that look good on me. I really liked this color., it was gold and green prismatic effect.


It wasn’t too long before I had to get my hands on hot chocolate.

Of the ones I have tested, hot chocolate was probably my very favorite. It is pretty yet subtle and versitle. I’m crazy for natural looking makeups and devour neutral colors.


Purple is one of my favorite colors and I wear it all time. So I had to try this lovely shade of purple called Acai. It is so warm and feminine and pretty!

My Mama and Me: Rhyming Devotions for You and Your Child


I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

With Easter coming up, it is easy to get wrapped up in candy and colored eggs and some parents wonder how they can incorporate the reason they might celebrate Easter, the Christian holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus.  I was really excited to be able to review this lovely book. This is a text meant to be used as a tool for teaching the writings of Christianity, as in text from the Holy Bible.  This is such a sweet little book. It is basically a children’s first Bible. I gave it to a dear friend for her son’s birthday, because she reads to her son every night and she was getting a little tired of reading the same books over and over. While this is too long to read in one sitting for most kids, it is a great way to introduce the teachings of the Holy Bible to children.

The author also includes activities within the book as well as verses and rhymes. This is a book a parent can use for many years

I loved the illustrations, they are some of my favorite I have ever seen in a children’s book.

You can get this book on Amazon.

Review-Crave Naturals Hairbrush


I feel like I can never find a brush when I need one, so I was thrilled to be offered this hairbrush to review, because I hadn’t seen my comb in about a week.

I received this crave detangling brush in exchange for an honest review.

From the crave team:

Tangles and knots are not only a huge pain, but they can also cause damage and breakage to hair. The Glide Thru Detangling Brush promises to end that pain and suffering. No more fighting with your brush to get through knots, no more getting your brush stuck in your hair and no more children crying at the sight of a hair brush. Our detangling brush has been designed to tackle knots and tangles head on, while also protecting your hair from breakage, damage and hair loss.

How This New Brush Will Improve Your Hair & Prevent Damage

Flexible bristles of various lengths helps to reduce pressure while the brush effortlessly glides through hair ensuring each strand is treated in the most delicate manner so breakage and split ends do not occur. The result is smooth, shiny, easy to manage hair.

Looking for a detangling brush that’s easy to hold and can be used while blowdrying, we’ve got you covered. The brush was designed with an ergonomic handle, making it comfortable to use.

Why This Brush Will Be The Last Brush You Use:

✓ Use on wet or dry hair
✓ Use on extensions or wigs
✓ Minimizes breakage, split ends & hair loss
✓ Smooths the cuticle layer increasing shine
✓ Massage your scalp to promote hair growth
✓ Delicate on the scalp since it is 100% Beadless so it will not dig into the scalp
✓ Easy to clean


I have mixed feelings about this brush. On one hand it did make my hair feel voluminous and very, very, soft. I don’t feel that for my hair type, it is good to use on wet hair. (I have curly hair)

If you are a mother of young children you have probably had to brush your daughter’s hair and been met with less than positive reaction. A gentle detangling brush is essential to your sanity. This felt wonderful on my scalp and I feel like it worked conditioner and oils through my hair.

I noticed that the brush bristles seemed familiar; it took me a minute to realize the last time I had seen this type of comb, it was a currycomb, used to groom horses! it was the same basic technology as horse grooming tack. No wonder it works.

As a blogger, writer and crafter, I use my hands a lot. This brush handle hurt my wrist quite a bit. I have to hold it around the brush itself and not the handle.

You can order one here:
