BOBEAM SHAMPOO BARS

BOBEAM logo

I found BOBEAM strictly by accident and am glad I found them. Laquita keeps her costs low and her product quality high.

I contacted her after finding her site on Etsy. She was more than happy to help me with my hair dilemma. She and I have similar hair types.  It took about two days for the shampoos to come in the mail.

BOBEAM has several different types of Shampoo Bars to choose from.

My boyfriend loves these. His job is mainly outdoors and the shampoo bars give his scalp that added extra cleaning.

I love taking these with me  on trips. Avoid the messy shampoo bottles and switch to a BOBEAM Shampoo Bar. Try one of her many different shampoo bars.

It’s really fun to create any design possible and be able to use it in your home, on your car, for a gift, etc the possibilities are endless. They are open to suggestions too, even better!

Their vinyl decals are great for walls around the home, inspirational quotes, and make great gifts. Their vinyl decals are 100% removable and will not leave any residue on your walls. They use the highest grade vinyl on the market and offer a great matte finish product.

In my last apartment, I decided I was going to stencil the living room. We lived there for 6 years and I never finished the last of the wall. I ran out of paint and then I looked at it so long, I hated it.

I had so much fun with these.

Klein Kreations is a godsend to those of us who don’t have time or the patience to paint or stencil.

These were easy to apply and very inexpensive.

Namaste Gluten Free Brownies

Namaste Gluten Free Brownies

I am not known for my Culilnary skills, but I do try. I tore open my package of Namaste Gluten Free Brownies and got a pleasant aroma of chocolate. Okay, this smells fantastic! This is my first try with gluten free foods, so I wasn’t sure what to expect.

The ingredients were simple enough and the directions were printed large enough that I didn’t have to hunt for reading glasses.

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Lightly spray or grease pan.

In a large mixing bowl combine:
3 eggs (make sure you break eggs in the bowl first, in the chance that any shell pieces fall into the bowl).

Namaste Brownie Mix "eggs First"
Add 3/4 cup of oil and 1/2 cup of water (I ran out of oil and substituted apples that I had pureed and froze, last month).

Namaste Brownie Mix (add the mix)
Add Namaste Gluten Free Brownie Mix . You can see the nice chocolate color and light texture. Mix by hand or electric mixer. It’s always times like this that I remember my mixer is missing.

Namaste Gluten Free Brownies

I usually bake goodies in cupcake pans to avoid picking up crumbs and utensils. It also helps prevent the … “why is hers bigger than mine?”

I baked my Namaste Gluten Free Brownies on 350 F for about 35 minutes. Let cool and enjoy. These came out perfect. A nice, rich, chocolaty, gluten free dessert.

I left these out to cool, with the intention of taking a picture. We had family and friends over, so when I went back to take the , there was one left. I caught two of the culprits in the act! (Angelica and Hunter)

The one “Bruffin” that I did get to try was  super moist in the middle and super delicious. I was pleasantly surprised.

GIVEAWAY: In the comment section, tell us why you want to try Namaste Foods products and ONE winner will be randomly selected to receive a Namaste gift tote filled with Namaste products and gluten free resources (see image below).

Mixed Tees

Mixed Tees Main Header Logo

Thanks to my “model” Ryan Prentiss for being a good sport and model.

My son scoffed some of my Mixed Tees and has promised to take pics. I won’t hold my breath on that though.

The Mixed Tees are super comfy, so far they have passed the “washer” test. My BF wore two of them to work, no, not at the same time. He’s a wood guy, cuts trees and logs them. (My selfless plug) My point is that he goes through tee shirts at an unbelievable rate. I have more “rags” than I know what to do with. I have to use really strong detergent to get his work clothes “everything he owns” clean. So far, Mixed Tees has passed and have not made it to the rags pile.

I purposely look for loose threads, image peels, irregulars, and other defects. I found none on all six of the shirts. Pretty impressive dontchya think?

You really can’t beat the prices and quality from Mixed Tees.

The Ale House in Gardner, MA.

GARDNER ALE HOUSE

Lunch at the Gardner Ale House

74 Parker St, Gardner, MA 01440
978-669-0122

The Ladies visit the Ale House – October 15, 2013

The Ale house opens at 11:30AM on weekdays. Check out their hours of operation. We were a bit early and being that it was a warm day, we walked around downtown Gardner. We got back to the restaurant at 11:32AM, nothing like being prompt.

My mother decided that we sit at the bar, like she always does, She always thinks by sitting at the bar, our service will be faster…. Heather waited on us.

We both ordered the Lunch Special, Lobster Stuffing topped Haddock, and two non-alcoholic Iced Teas. It only took a few minutes for our meals to arrive.  We were gabbing and lost track of time. We were not in a rush and we used this time to catch up..

Me and Mum at the Ale House in Gardner Oct 15 2013

Heather brought out our Lobster stuffing topped haddock. OMG, it looked so good. After taking one bite, I could taste the flavors meld and marry together to form a perfect union creating the ultimate dish topped with a lemon wedge. This came with their delicious brown butter mashed potatoes, which were fluffy and mealy, not mushy.  Their vegetable of the day was green beans, I’m not a fan of green beans, but these were delicious. I’m donating my can beans as soon as I get home. The beans had a farm fresh flavor and a lovely vivid hue. The meal was very appealing and scrumptious.

Each meal was $11.00, plus tax, tip ($7.00) and drinks. Great deal for a great meal.

Ale house Rcpt

 

This was definitely a “townie” establishment because of the beer mugs hanging over the bar with names on or in them. This is obviously a sign of a great restaurant, they just keep coming back. Pretty Cool.

The Gardner Ale house has ambiance like no other place in the area. They also brew their own beer. http://www.gardnerale.com/ourbeers.htm


Give the Gardner Ale House a try. Heather, our bartender, was like a little tornado.  Great job Heather!

I haven’t lived in the Gardner, MA area for very long. I’m constantly getting lost, even with my GPS.  On one of the many times that I was lost, I drove by a pub style looking restaurant. I later found out it was The Gardner Ale house. I called the Restaurant Manager Rick and asked about their food. parking, and events.

It turns out that the Gardner Ale House is not only a restaurant, but they are famous for brewing their own beer.

PERFORMANCE COLOR’S FOUNDATIONS

Performance Color’s Foundation Collection

OIL FREE Light & Smooth FOUNDATION

Performance colors main logo

14 Colors Medium Coverage, Matte Finish – Warm, Neutral, & Cool Tones

$10.00 USD

I rarely wear foundation because it always seems to crack or look powdery and caked on. So I gave up. When I had the opportunity to try Performance Color’s Foundations, I figured I’d give it a shot. I have a wedding coming up and needed a touch of color. Otherwise, I look like death in photos.

I decided on the Neutral Light, It went on smoothly, it wasn’t greasy, nor did it cake up. I’ll include pics from the wedding next week and show you how the make up looks from start to finish.

PERFORMANCE COLORS FOUNDATION IMAGEPerformance Clr Foundation Colors

Dries down quickly so it barely feels like you are wearing anything. All day wear! Matte powdery finish! Smooth and beautiful with light reflecting spheres to blur imperfections and wrinkles. This foundation is lightweight and spreads easily over any skin type. It comes in in warm (yellow undertones), neutral, and cool (pink undertones). At the fair end of the spectrum the color shift is more subtle. Sample sizes are available. Oil-free formula and a non-oily feel – made with non-cosmogeic ingredients to not block pores.
