Toss the Tube! Scott Naturals Tube-Free Review

November 27, 2014 at 5:18 pm (Uncategorized)

First of all – Have you joined Crowdtap?! You should!

Through Crowdtap I was given a free sample of Scott Naturals Tube-Free toilet paper.

That is what the package looks like. It’s pretty simple and GREEN! I love the design! Also, on the back is some box tops if you collect those. So you probably can’t see what a roll of toilet paper without a tube actually looks like. Let me fix that!



It was about what I expected. It’s awesome. I really enjoyed not having to pull a tube off, put a new roll on, and all that. I know, I’m incredibly lazy, but it was nice not having those extra steps!


The quality of the toilet paper was really good too- without going into too much detail. The paper over all is sturdy and soft- not like sandpaper. My only issue was that it was 1 ply, so if that’s a problem for you.. you’ve been warned. Even with being a 2ply kinda girl, I really liked this toilet paper! I would totally recommend it to anyone looking to go green and switch toilet paper brands.

Disclaimer- I was given a free 4 pack of Scott Naturals Tube Free toilet paper through Crowdtap. My opinion was not swayed by free toilet paper. The photos above are my own.

Product Review: Sweet’n’Low The Sweeter The Better!

October 3, 2014 at 9:19 am (Uncategorized)

First off, have you joined Crowdtap? Hmmm?! Go do it! I’ll link in the bottom! 😀

I was recently chosen by Crowdtap to participate in a party, The Sweeter, The Better! I was gifted a box of Sweet’n’Low (YAY!), Some sample packs of Sweet’n’Low (which I gave to my party participants), a Sweet’n’Low Pitcher and Measuring cup, some cups and some pretty pink napkins! I was asked to throw a party with my gal-pals and make some “skinny” drinks. Most of us are moms. We couldn’t figure out what drinks to make because we wanted to make the most of our Sweet’n’Low. Then it hit us! We’ll make something for the entire family, and then make our drinks from that! So we did the only thing we could think of. We made Kool-aid!


We made two kinds- Fruit Punch and Mixed Berry. We took the Kool-aid and mixed it with some vodka. We didn’t get real inventive, but it was tons of fun.


We really liked the Sweet’n’Low. Normally to make Kool-aid, I use regular sugar. I was blown away at how little Sweet’n’Low I really needed to make anything. It was really easy to use, and I couldn’t tell the difference between the Sweet’n’Low and real sugar.


I’m really excited having had been chosen for this sample and share because I think I’ll make the switch to Sweet’n’Low instead of using real sugar! It was super easy, tasted great and for me, was a great “skinny” alternative to regular sugar. We had tons of fun with our “skinny” drinks, and girl’s night. 😀



If you’d like to read more about the Sweet’n’Low product, go HERE to their website and check it out!

Kingsford #TailgateForOurTroops BBQ

September 10, 2014 at 5:59 am (Recipes, Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , )

I’m going to start this off with one question. Have you joined Crowdtap yet? Yes, this is going to be a thing. Just join so I can stop asking. haha.

Alright, down to brass tax. I was lucky enough to get into the Kingsford crowd for a #tailgateForOurTroops BBQ. It was amazing! We got a coupon for Kingsford charcoal- it’s the BEST. We’re a Charcoal family. So, this was incredibly awesome for us. A running joke- I got Husband a grilling multi-tool for our anniversary one year that says “Grill Master Matt” on it. This was right after he grilled me the most amazing “meatyback ribs”. I think the meatyback ribs are just a local grocer item, but if you can find them, don’t hesitate! They’re epic!

We threw a Kingsford BBQ for our family and friends complete with Kingsford charcoal and Kingsford lighter fluid for our grill! I had Husband make some beer brats, meatybacks, bison burgers and there were a few “Jamaica rub” chops. Yum! Included for our sides were curly fries (for meee!), some chips, I made a “veggie tray” which was just carrots and broccoli and some dill dip on a plate. One of our family members made a cake, and a friend made an awesome lemon pie!


Here’s the awesome Fire and Smoke book we got! It’s got TONS of awesome recipes! I added the link to the photo so if you’d like to check it out on Amazon, just click the photo! 😀


hSo, the grillmaster made some beer brats- they were very good! We didn’t have ANY leftovers! I was going to snap some photos of the meatyback ribs, but they were being eaten when I remembered I didn’t get a photo- boooooo.



Here’s the awesome #TailgateForOurTroops apron! It’s got a big pocket on the front too, which is a nice feature.


Beer brats all done!


My bison burger. YUUUM!

You can visit Kingsford’s website HERE. They have tons of products and info on all of them. They’ve also got some hilarious shirts like the one below- it’s also clickable. Their store is HERE, if you’d like to take a look. There are shirts, hoodies, an awesome shop jacket (which is my favorite), hats, other various accessories, and some grilling tools. Don’t take my word for it, go look!


And lastly, if you’d like to join Crowdtap and have not joined yet, Sign up!

Disclaimer: I was given- for free- a coupon for a bag of Kingsford charcoal, a paperback copy of Chris Lilly’s new cookbook: “Fire and Smoke”, and a #TailgateForOurTroops apron via Crowdtap. My opinions stated above are my own and not the product of free items. All pictures belong to me, with the exception of Chris Lilly’s book and the Kingsford shirt- which are present so you can go look at and/or buy the book, or the shirt if you’d like- They’re clickable.

Product Review: LISTERINE Naturals

September 3, 2014 at 11:27 pm (Uncategorized)

I think I’m getting better at this product review thing. So, before we start. Have you joined Crowdtap yet? If so, let me know down in the comments how much you totally love it, and if you haven’t… Why? Hmmmm?! Yes, I am making a face at you right now as I’m typing this. Join. Just, just do it. Ok? Ok.

So, Crowdtap had a LISTERINE Naturals Sample Party. It was fun. However, my “party” was, sort of lame. It was broken up into pieces and more of a partial get together- because of schedules, it still worked and I got some great feedback for this product.

First, This is what it looks like.

I’ll link to LISTERINE’s website at the bottom so you guys can check out the product info and ingredients. Now, down to business. This is LISTERINE’s new product. It’s free of dyes, sweeteners and artificial flavors (YAY!!!). Overall it’s a pretty solid LISTERINE product. Personally, I didn’t like it as much as I thought I would. I prefer the Cool Mint over the Naturals. My siblings and my husband LOVE this product. They liked the light mint flavor and, like other LISTERINE products, it does work amazingly. It gives that long-lasting fresh feeling- that’s something we can all enjoy!

For the party, I dug out our Transformers Shot Glasses. What better way to have a sample party than the Transformers shot glasses? I can only think of one better way- mustache shot glasses, but I found the Transformers ones first, and decided to stop digging through the cabinets for shot glasses we never use.




So, all in all, this is a pretty good product, even if I like Cool Mint better. I think we may switch to this one because Husband likes it so well. And as promised…

If you have joined Crowdtap, leave a comment below and let me know how much you love it! I’d love to hear stories! And let me know if you’ve tried this product, and how you like it too!

No, this is not about a feeling of inner turmoil. I realize my taste in music is sporadic, chaotic, and is definitely alternative. Most of my favorite bands are practically unheard of or when I tell others who they are, I get an all too familiar response of “They’re still making music?”. Yes. Yes, they are. One of my favorite bands and has been for the last.. ohhh. 10 years. Smile Empty Soul. One of my favorite albums was titled Anxiety. What makes this particular album so special… it took YEARS for it to finally be released. From what I heard, the band was selling burned copies of the cd at their shows. I went through a ton of waiting and just plain annoyance to get it.

I used to listen to this album nearly every morning on my drive to school- yes, back in high school. I believe it was my junior and part of senior year. I even had a friend steal the cd out of my car- to which I had to get another copy.

I’ve never been able to make it to one of their shows, but I’ve always wanted to. Most of the problem was the age restrictions. Back in high school, my dad and I used to go to concerts fairly often. Smile Empty Soul never happened, though.

Anyway, I suggest checking out Smile Empty Soul, maybe a few off the Anxiety Album, but all their albums are good!

Here’s a photo of the album cover.

The Grey (Film)

September 1, 2013 at 10:34 am (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , )

It’s absolutely no secret that I love Liam Neeson. He’s a great actor and slips into these amazing roles perfectly. One movie that I really liked was The Grey. I kid you not, I’ve seen every Liam Neeson movie, except, maybe 4. I think the only Liam Neeson I wasn’t thrilled with, was The Other Man. I wasn’t overjoyed with the story in Darkman either, but it wasn’t the worst movie I’ve ever seen.

Anyway, back on track. The Grey. My husband had taken me to see it in the theatre shortly after it came out. I remember it very specifically because that day was my dad’s “anniversary”… Yeah, that’s a terrible term for it, but I’m not sure what to call it, that isn’t totally obnoxious, or depressing. I didn’t even know what the movie was about before I told my husband I wanted to see it. I’ve pretty much come to the conclusion that if Liam Neeson is in it, it probably isn’t that bad, and has a high chance of being really epic.

This movie did NOT disappoint me. The gist of the movie is… Liam Neeson (John Ottway) is up in Alaska working for this oil company hunting wolves that are threatening the drilling team. On his last day on the job, he writes a letter to his wife- a suicide letter. He doesn’t go through with it. The next day he and a team are leaving, going home, and the plane flies through a blizzard and crashes. That’s all I’m going to say, but it is completely epic and Liam Neeson does an amazing job in this movie.

Seriously, look at this movie poster. It screams epic.
