Sit back and kick your feet up. Emmy's is meant to be enjoyed.

I received a complimentary"free coupon" to purchase one of these Organic Coconut Cookies. I went to my local Whole Foods Market in town and chose the Chocolate Chip. You can never go wrong with anything that has chocolate chips in a cookie. I'm obsessed!


Emmy's Organic Cookies are made with 100% organic ingredients. I chose the chocolate chip because it gives me that extra sweetness for my sweet tooth. I love the petite size of the cookies just enough for a mid night snack or a snack on the go to work or an after school sport whichever you'd like to enjoy these snacks.

The cookies itself are scrumptious and tasty and they are very good for a healthy snack. They are a bit of a mess when you bit into them so be careful of the crumbles 😂 I enjoyed these the most at my job when I had a 15 minute break to hold me over until dinner time. They are Non-GMO, Gluten-Free, Vegan, Soy-Free & Grain-Free!

FlexClip Video Maker Review!


Disclaimer: I was not compensated for this post. This review and tutorial is my own opinion.



PearlMountain Limited, has focused on the research and development of Graphics & Multimedia software since 2006. We aim to make professional graphic design and video production capability accessible to everyone. Our products have millions of users spreading over 100 countries and areas. . .to read more about FlexClip click here



FlexClip is an easy to use video maker that helps everyone to create a professional looking video in just seconds. You may use it as a promo video, a real estate video, a memorable video or simply a tutorial video. You can cut a clip from your very own video quickly and make it far more dynamic with the combination of a text animation and voice recording (which I think is very cool. I've never experienced a app like that). 

I remember I had this "Movie Maker" before it let me do a lot of editing and pictures with different effect for pictures and videos and music so it kinda resembles this app a bit but it was mainly for my computer. I think an updated version of FlexClip is way more experienced and has a lot more to offer. I like how you can have it as an app on your phone and desktop computer.



I did a little video just to get the hang of all the buttons and wanted to make something simple and sweet just to give you a feel of how it works. It's pretty awesome. Now I have to go through all my actual pictures and make a memorable collage of me and my son and all the fun times we had and upload it on my YouTube channel. I'm so excited!

I am always looking for fun and easy to use software. You know why? Well because I love creating slideshows and pictures. I think it's the best memorable thing you can do with your images, and show them off to your friends/family, so with FlexClip is quite the catch and very safe as well, and you don't have to DOWNLOAD I think that is the best catch for me anyways.


(Another sweet little introduction I found on FlexClip Facebook Page)

OWYN - Only What You Need Review & Giveaway!


Disclaimer: I was not compensated for this post. I receive complimentary products for review purposes. All opinions are my own.


OWYN
OWYN was inspired by the cultural movement to focus on the things that matter most. We believe this so strongly that our name OWYN stands for Only What You Need. For us, this philosophy is very simple: use nutritious, plant-based ingredients and leave out inflammatory animal products and allergens.

I received three cases of OWYN to review on my blog. I was sent Smooth Vanilla, Strawberry Banana and Dark Chocolate.

These OWYN protein drinks are really good my step dad loves them. We tried the smooth vanilla and they were really good coming from my step dad with only 20g of protein. He takes them for work and it's even great to have in the morning or just a snack to fill you up throughout the day. 

I tried it also but I didn't quite like the vanilla flavor. I mean my step dad drank it like it was juice. For me I had to have it cold so I added some ice cubes thinking it would taste much better, but I just didn't really like it. I think I would have liked it better if I added it into my strawberry banana home made smoothies.

~ My boyfriend Steve really loved the Strawberry Banana a lot so I ended up giving him the whole case because I did try it also and it just tasted chalky to me I did not like it. I think me and protein drinks don't mix well. Also you have to think about it how everyone has different taste buds. It just has a bad after taste for me as well.

~ Dark Chocolate my step dad likes it he has no problem drinking it. I recommend using them and making smoothies with them that way I don't have to get that chalky taste in my mouth and I can incorporate it into something I do like and get that protein fix as well.

Benefits of Drinking OWYN:
100% Plant-based nutrition
Superfoods Blend
Easy to digest fats
High Vegan Omega 3
Good source of Fiber
Low sugar content

Montana Mex Review



Disclaimer: I was not compensated for this post. I receive complimentary products for review purposes. All opinions are my own.


Montana Mex

Hello! You've found montana mex, we make delicious, clean label, happy food to help you eat well and stay smiling... check out more at www.montanamex.com

I was sent All The Goodies Box to review on my blog. I never heard of this brand called Montana Mex before so I was really excited to try it out.

I loved the way the box was presented and the products nicely fit in the compartments and the flaps to the left and right are where the seasoning jars were, and I thought that was lovely packaging I just had to say that.

All The Goodies Box included the following:

~ BBQ

I remember we didn't have any ketchup in the house one day and I said I have ketchup it's not the same brand as we always usually have because my family is a bit skeptical with trying new ketchup from a different brand, so my brother tried it and he didn't quite like it. 

Of course typical 20 year old. I thought ketchup was ketchup. I mean of course it tasted somewhat different but it wasn't that awful. I had a little bit with some of my egg omelet and sausage and I thought it was pretty good. The texture is a bit thick yes and that is something that we aren't used to.

I wouldn't say the BBQ was that great it had a bitter taste something I would have to get used to eating for sure. I can't wait to try the Habanero because I love spicy foods and I could use this and eat it with chicken or make a buffalo chicken salad which I think would taste good.

I usually prefer cooking with Avocado Oil then most oils because I just hear so much good positive reviews how avocado oil is more better to use then most. I cooked some pot-stickers in a pan and used the 100% natural, cold pressed avocado oil which I love. 

I even thought about seasoning my popcorn with the Jalapeno seasoning because I love spicy and that seasoning with a big kick I just think that would be really good and tasty.

Love all the good above in these products!
