Blogger Opp and Review/Seventh Generation Eco-Friendly ; Small Bottle ~ Big Clean

Certain soaps irritate my skin so I really like Seventh Generation's Free & Clear laundry detergent because it is clinically proven to be hypoallergenic. It is made without dyes, synthetic fragrances or optical brighteners.
Seventh Generation Free & Clear 4X Concentrated Natural Laundry Detergent has the most eco-friendly container I have used in my laundry room too. It is made out of recycled fiber and can be composted or recycled. I have not yet entered the composting world but this also makes it lighter than standard containers. The fact that the soap is concentrated also helps. I lined it up next to a bottle of another product that contained comparable loads.Seventh Generation = 50 ounces Other Product = 100 ounces Which one would you rather haul home from the store? My laundry area is tiny so it is nice to have extra room in there. Much easier for pouring too.I am a member of a panel called Generation Good by Seventh Generation. Check it out!

L'Oreal Paris Extraordinary Oil System Brought My Curls to Life

Lets get bouncy! That is the first thing that comes to mind when I want to describe L'Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare Extraordinary Oil Every Day Care Regimen. Of course the great coconut scent comes to mind also. I feel like I am pampering my hair when I use this product. My hair is really more manageable now and it is much easier to comb through.
 The system is really easy - just use the shampoo, conditioner and top it off with the Re-Nourish Mask. One of the suggested uses for the mask was to put it on for 20 minutes BEFORE you shampoo and condition and I think I liked the results even better.
The mask is creamy but not too thick and I like that it comes in a jar.

The containers are practical and pretty and I really like that the words conditioner and shampoo are large enough to see in the shower. I may finally have found the right hair system for me!

Sahale Snacks ~ An Adventure in Flavor :D

I adored trying out Sahale Snacks. The quality of the ingredients is impressive. Being able to recognize all the ingredients as natural food is rare.

As a breakfast bar kind of person the Sahale Bars really appealed to me. I love the convenience of bars - no utensils, no cooking. All bars are not created equal and Sahale Bars are in a class of their own. Even the names sound better ~ like Salted Caramel Apple Pecan Layered Nut Bar. Or Almond Vanilla Latte Layered Nut What surprised me more with this sampling venture was that I preferred the Sahale Grab and Go Snacks even better than the bars. Especially the Pomegranate Vanilla Flavored Cashews Glazed Mix. Sturdy packaging keeps the product fresh and portable. As a bit of a nibbler (meaning I like to eat a little bit at a time) these are really handy as I can just have a few bites then clip the bag til I want more. They are also great in hot cereal - skip the sugar just toss a few spoonfuls of these lovelies in for a great flavor boos…

Stuff I Like Coffee Drink Featuring Almond Breeze

As a Blue Diamond tastemaker I get to come up with original ways to use Almond Breeze so this month I decided to make a coffee drink. I love coffee drinks and sometimes they are just way too sweet and have so much stuff going on it's ridiculous. This is a really simple drink to make and not too sweet made with stuff I like. A healthier alternative to many of the coffee drinks out there.
4 oz Almond Breeze Original Almondmilk 2 oz prepared espresso (I used instant and let it cool off) 2 oz Almond Breeze Chocolate Almondmilk Ice Put ice in glass and 4 ounces Almond Breeze Original Almondmilk, add 2 ounces espresso than two ounces of Almond Breeze Chocolate Almondmilk, stir and enjoy!
