A whole new spin on Ginger, with Reed's Ginger Brew



Ginger ale has always been the turn to drink when the stomach is a little off, but never really a drink I would considered drinking over a soda or tea, until Reed's Ginger Brew.

Reed's Ginger Brew is a huge line of ginger ales, which make for the perfect drink or mixer. They have 7 flavors of ginger ales to pick from:


Reed's Ginger Brew Extra Ginger Brew is a great tasting ginger ale that has more of a bite to it with the extra punch of ginger. You can drink it on its own or mix it into a Calmado which is Hangar One Kaffir Lime Vodka, Muddles Mint, Ginger Syrup, Fresh Lime and sparkling water on ice in a pint glass.


This is a sweet treat that even the kids will like, Cherry Ginger Brew. You can see in the picture how the light hits the bottle and you can see its red goodness inside. The Cherry Ginger Brew is almost like a cherry soda but better for you because of the ginger. I goes great in strawberry milkshakes. I really enjoy it on it's own after its super cold. 


Raspberry Ginger Brew, wow! I love this stuff its so great! My kids enjoy it as well, they drink a bottle in seconds. The raspberry is sweet and mixed with ginger makes for the perfect summer drink. The Raspberry Ginger Brew makes for a really good soda cake, but again better for you because its ginger ale not soda. 


Premium Ginger Brew is really great it is like the king of ginger ale's. This is the ale of all ales you will wanna drink this after a long hot day in the sun. It soothes the sole its so good. This is the porch drink you have been searching for. 


This is my all time favorite, it was perfect timing with fall just around the corner. The Apple Ginger Brew. The Apple Ginger Brew is great warm. It reminds me of apple cider but with a kick. As soon as I am drinking a Apple Ginger Brew I think fall, which makes me feel happy inside because fall just brings comfort. Its a drink I like to share with friends and family. 


Where it all started Reed's Ginger Brew the simple great taste of ginger ale.

Noosa Yoghurt goes Troppo

I have tried Noosa Yoghurt, before and wow its so very good, its a family favorite and you could only imagine how happy we were to find out that this fall Noosa is introducing 3 new flavors! The new flavors are:




Pumpkin, Pineapple and Coconut. I am now hooked on eating Noosa. I swear they had me in mind when coming out with these new flavors. : )  The coconut and pineapple are my all time favorite, I have already used them to create awesome smoothies and desserts. The pumpkin is great also and its neat to see pumpkin in yogurt form.

Noosa is so rich and creamy making for the perfect treat after a long day or even better yet a great start to a long days work. What is great about Noosa is my kids really enjoy it as well, and it is a better healthier option for them.

Noosa Yoghurt already comes in these 9 flavors:
  • Tart Cherry
  • Lemon
  • Honey
  • Blueberry
  • Mango
  • Strawberry Rhubarb 
  • Peach
  • Passion Fruit


    Each cup has 17 grams of protein! That's more than a greek yogurt! The Noosa Yoghurt is a treat worth trying. My kids and I enjoy it and the cups are huge which I normally eat half in the morning and the rest at night before bed. You can find Noosa Yoghurts at Target.

Soybu clothing for everyday life!




Lady's lets face it, its in our genes to shop, we love to shop! Soybu is an amazing clothing line which is Yoga Wear for everyday life. 

Soybu is a clothing line which is made to empower the woman, by creating comfortable, stylish, everyday clothing. Soybu uses eco-friendly fibers to make long lasting apparel with a minimal impact on the planet. The line is inspired by maintaining a full life of balance, by balancing exercise with leisure and work with fun. Soybu makes its clothing to fit, feel and last longer while wearing on a everyday basis. 

I was able to sample 2 pieces from Soybu's line of women's apparel. The first is the Elle Tee. The Elle Tee comes in 4 colors, which I chose the purple with charcoal. I love how lose the shirt is, its very soft to touch, has a overlapping petal back which makes it great to pair up with a tank. What is great about this piece is that living here in Florida we don't have much of a winter it gets cool but never really cold. The Elle tee is a perfect fit, it is long sleeve, but light weight enough for it to be to hot and keeps you comfy in cooler weather. 



The other piece which I had a chance to try is the Soybu Killer Caboose Pant Charcoal Yoga Pants. Wow! So there is a reason why Soybu calls the pants Killer Caboose, they show off every curve you have. The Soybu Killer Caboose, tucks in your backside making for a nice well rounded shape, you will have guys drooling over you by the end of the day in these babies. The  Killer Caboose pants come in 4 colors as well, and go up to a size 2XL. I am in love with these pants, they move with me, they don't feel as though they will fall off because they are reinforced with a double layer waistband. 

These 2 pieces are only a fraction of the amazing line of Soybu products. Soybu has something for everyone, like the cute Gracie Line for girls, swimwear and even men's apparel. Soybu has been around since 1998, and is based out of Denver, CO.

13 Years Since 9/11 We Will Never Forget!



I remember the day well, we were visiting family in New York state and went to a building in which they worked. The building was huge and only had a few tv's all the sudden people were running around something was going on. We didn't know what but we knew we needed to get to the one tv in the area as we did so we ran into another family member who we hadn't known was there it was a panic joy thing as we meet up with him and all headed to the nearest tv. We all packed into a small room and watched as the first tower was on fire, then from the side of the tower you see what looks to be another plane, and all the sudden it hits the second tower! I was only 17 and never had been to New York City so I didn't know much about the towers but just watching everything unfold was such a mix max of emotions. I cried for those who I did not know I cried for those in the building, on the plane, in the area, for those who had family and were watching all this unfold. I cried. When the towers fell, there was a overwhelming silence, it was as though the grim reaper came and took us all for a moment in time. It was such a out of body experience to watch the horror of everything playing out. No more would our lives be the the same.

I was supposed to leave from the Boston airport the following Sunday after all this had happened, they did release flights. It was very quite at the airport very few people on the plane. Next to me while waiting was a man who looked to be Arab, although he was dressed as a normal american because of the events that unfolded he was called out and searched. He was found to have nothing on him but thanks to our captain of our flight he was no longer aloud to be on the plane, everyone cheered. I sat there in disbelieve and even more upset because what if it had been a white american or a African american or anything which is a more popular race? then what??? It was sad that now those who didn't have anything to do with anything were being punished from something they had ran away from or who simply were born american.

Take today to reflect on those who were lost, those who survived, those who helped and those who are still in need. Also take the time to think on how you judge others because this is what we pass on to the next generation of Americans!

ALWAYS REMEMBER 9/11

V. ALRT Personal Emergency Alert Device



I am like any mom, I worry about my kids. The V. ALRT is a great way to know they are safer without me being around 24/7. What and how exactly does the V.ALRT work?



It is pretty easy actually. You need to own a smartphone which uses Google Play or App Store and download V. ALRT app. Now that you have the app your able to have personal protection wherever you go, without having to pay for a plan or than your cell phone contract of course.

What I love about the V. ALRT is many things one is your able to wear it however, you can wear it as a necklace, a key chain or my personal favorite a watch, with band provided because lets face it how many of us use watches anymore. The band which comes with the V. ALRT is a soft black silicone which makes for comfort. You can also stick it on to objects which your child always has like if on a bike ride stick it to their helmet.


The V. ALRT takes action when your having a emergency all with a simple push of a button. When the button is pressed it will be able to send text messages, call your contacts, send a approximate location and it can automatically detect if you have fallen, with certain limitation. When setting up the V. ALRT app you will be asked questions on who to call in case of a emergency as well as who to text, so that when you hit the button these people will be alerted.


The V. ALRT can range up to 75' indoors and 300' outdoors, its waterproof, uses one battery which depending on usage can last up to a year. Battery is included in your purchase of the V. ALRT. Is also able to be a sound and visual alarm so if your not able to yell for help you will still be heard.


I love my V. ALRT, and I have so many family members who would benefit from it, my grandmother is getting older and she is extremely stubborn when it comes to asking for help, so knowing that at least she has the V. ALRT as a last result helps for me to relax. Along with me having 5 kids I always my youngest is very independent so she is always wondering off on me so its great to know I have a extra set of eyes on her with the V. ALRT.


You can purchase the V. ALRT by clicking here and like V. ALRT on Facebook to keep up with new products.
