That's It Fruit Review

That's It Fruit

That's It Fruit snacks are fruit bars made with only 2 ingredients. They come in six yummy flavors and are perfect for getting two servings of fruit in while you are on the go, at school, work, the gym, hiking, outdoors, or at home! Each bar is filled with 3g of fiber and only 100 calories! 
That's It Fruit bars are also nonGMO, all natural, made with no preservatives, no added sugars, no fat,  and no nuts. They are great for a variety of lifestyles including vegan, gluten free, diabetic friendly, and kosher.

The six flavors include Apple & Blueberry (made with 20 blueberries), Apple & Mango, Apple & Cherries (made with 10 cherries), Apple & Apricots (made with 3 apricots), Apple & Banana, and Apple & Pear. 

Each flavor is absolutely delicious! That's It Fruit is a perfect snack while I commute to school or in between classes. My personal favorite is the Apple & Cherries, which is no surprise because I love anything with cherries in it! The texture is different as the bars only contain fruit. The bars are sort of sticky and have a chewy texture. I love the convenience of That's It bars! They are much easier than bringing fruit because there is no mess and does not need to be prepared (cut, peeled, etc). 

That's It Fruit bars are convenient, taste great, and help with portion control. They also make a nutritious and delicious snack for children of all ages! 

I received samples of That's It for review ~ all opinions are 100% my own!

I know it is currently the middle of the semester, but be sure to keep this in mind as the spring semester begins. As a sophomore in college, I learned very quick my first semester that buying books was a ridiculous amount of money I was not willing to spend. When I found out I could rent textbooks from Chegg it was a huge sigh of relief. It is SO easy to rent textbooks, simply gather all the required textbooks ISBN's (the number that identifies the book), enter them on Chegg, find the books, check out, & get the books in the mail! Keep the box, when it's time to return the books at the end of the semester simply log into Chegg and print the packing labels. Pack all the books in the original box and drop it at the post office. SIMPLE! They also offer e-books! I personally like having a book in my hand however everyone has their own preference & Chegg has exactly what YOU need to be successful in school! This semester alone I saved over $1,000 by renting my textbooks!

I chose the Island Get Away card which takes me back to vacation every time I look at it! The colors are extremely vibrant and I love the scene of the boat in the tropical water. Other people have taken notice and I'm sure inform them on all the fabulous designs offered by CARD!

Wholly Hemp Review & Giveaway {CLOSED}

Hemp Authority 
Wholly Hemp Soothing Soap Review & Giveaway

Hemp Authority is an online store specializing in all things hemp!  They are a conscious company committed to delivering the best quality products at affordable pricing.
Hemp Authority has everything from clothing and bags to beauty products such as lip balms and soaps.

Hemp Authority explains how their packaging follows their sustainability practices, "no invoices are printed and wasted within your order. Addresses are hand written onto boxes when possible. All goods are packaged with recycled newspapers. We continuously look for new partners in North America for products and services to cut down on shipping within our value chain and reduce the overall carbon footprint of our products"

Hemp is a sustainable plant and is very different than marijuana. You can learn more about why you should choose hemp here: 

 For this review I chose the Wholly Hemp Soothing Soap. It comes in 12 different scents so there is sure to be something for everyone's preference! 
{patchouli, orange, lemon, lavender, juniper, bergamot, grapefruit, sandalwood, peppermint, secret falls, eucalyptus, geranium}

Why use hemp for skin care? Hemp Authority explains,
"Hemp has a higher concentration of Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) than any other plant, contains all 20 vital amino acids, and is rich in Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, D, E. With a 3:1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 EFAs (which is the perfect match to human skin), hemp seed oil quickly and easily soaks deep into skin providing hydration from the inside out and reducing skin redness, inflammation, & irritation

I received three scents to review: lavender, secret falls, and peppermint.
I was pleased with the packaging the soaps came in (sort of like newspaper, seemed like recycled paper) I also love how they are made in the USA & not tested on animals!
 Wholly Hemp Soap is handmade with quality ingredients in small batches.

Lavender scent: saponified hemp-coconut-palm-sunflower oil, lavender, rosemary extract
Peppermint scent: saponified hemp-coconut-palm-sunflower oil, peppermint oil, rosemary extract
Secret falls scent: saponified hemp-coconut-palm-sunflower oil, lavender oil, lemongrass oil, juniper berry oil, rosemary extracts

As you can see from above, the ingredient list is minimal ~ which is super important to me! I love that I can read (and understand) all the ingredients!
I am very impressed with Wholly Hemp Soothing Soap! I love each of the scents, my personal favorite is secret falls! Lavender, lemongrass and juniper create a refreshing, beautiful, floral scent.
 Each of the scents are strong in the bar and leave an earthy scent with a hint of essential oil on your skin. I love this as it is very natural and soothing. The soap also does a great job cleansing and leaving my skin with lots of moisture! I personally use a loofa and the Wholly Hemp Soap gets foamy as would any other soap.

Wholly Hemp Soap comes in 4oz bars for $5 each or buy 3 bars for only $12!

PINES WheatGrass Review

PINES Wheat Grass
The Wheat Grass People

PINES Wheat Grass is the original Wheat Grass Company that started in 1976. It is USDA Organic, nonGMO, raw, gluten free, and kosher.
What makes PINES unique? 
Grown in mineral rich Glacial soil 
Grown using rainwater, not irrigation water, which may be contaminated with run off of non-organic farm chemicals and animal waste 
5 year shelf life 
All products in amber glass, nitrogen-packed for zero oxidation vs. plastic where oxidation and loss of nutrients occur 
Harvested at the optimal jointing stage for highest nutrient content 
Competitively priced (you can score 100 tablets for $12.50 or as low as $7.50 when you buy in bulk)

It is suggested that you take 7 tablets with water as a serving of deep leafy green vegetable. I actually do not mind taking so many of these tablets, I just pop them in two at a time drinking lots of water. 

PINES Wheat Grass takes the extra steps to ensure that the nutritional content and flavor of their wheatgrass remain at peak levels. Because they pack their wheatgrass in amber glass bottles the result is the highest possible levels of chlorophyll, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phytochemicals, and ORAC value. 
I love that PINES Wheat Grass is a sustainable, organic company dedicated to providing the most nutrient rich wheatgrass to consumers. PINES is an honest company that truly cares about the health of people.I love that the name PINES came from the recognition that the Pine tree is an internationally known symbol of the peace that exists in nature. 
You can read all about the history of PINES here:
 I love that they have both tablets and powders! PINES Wheat Grass has a large variety of products to suit every preference!
Check out the PINES Wheat Grass for the best quality, pricing, and selection of wheatgrass products!

I received 100 tablets of PINES Wheat Grass for review purposes
All opinions are my own!
