Davinci Gourmet Syrups

I recently received samples of some of Davinci Gourmet’s flavored syrups. The flavors I received are mainly for use in coffee or baking. However, I’m sure there are many other uses for them. I really liked that the syrups were not overly sticky or thick, and that they are easily added to many different things.

One way you could use Davinci Gourmet syrups is in baking. Check out this recipe for a Chocolate Kahlua Trifle made with Davinci Gourmet’s Kahlua Syrup.

Ingredients

  • 1 (19.8 ounce) package brownie mix
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup coffee-flavored liqueur (such as Kahlua®), or Davinci Gourmet’s Kahlua Syrup, or to taste
  • 1 (3.9 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding and pie filling mix
  • 2 cups cold milk
  • 1 (12 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.
  2. Mix the brownie mix, water, vegetable oil, and eggs together in a mixing bowl until smooth, and pour the batter into the prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the brownies shows moist crumbs, 25 to 30 minutes. Set the brownies aside, and cool completely. Use a chopstick or the end of a wooden spoon to poke holes all over the brownies, about 1/2-inch apart; drizzle the coffee liqueur or Kahlua Syrup all over the brownies. Let the brownies stand 5 minutes to soak up the liqueur.
  4. In a bowl, whisk the chocolate pudding mix with cold milk until thickened, about 2 minutes; allow to stand 5 more minutes to set.
  5. To assemble dessert, cut the brownies up into small cubes. Layer 1/3 of the brownies into the bottom of a glass trifle bowl, and top with a layer of pudding, then a layer of whipped topping. Repeat twice more, ending with whipped topping. Chill at least 4 hours before serving.

ShowerPill Review and Coupon Code

So when I first heard of ShowerPill I thought it was literally a pill. Boy, was I wrong! ShowerPill is actually an antibacterial body wipe that you can carry in your purse or gym bag. ShowerPill was created by 3 former college football players who wanted to change our normal hygiene routines. Apparently one day they were joking about being able to take a pill instead of a shower after a workout. So they came up with with the ShowerPill wipes that are strong enough to kill 99.9% of bacteria, but are gently on skin.

Being a mommy of 2 girls under the age of 2 generally if I take the time to work out I have to either sacrifice my shower, or wait to take one. So these really came in handy as they let me be able to take a shower without wasting that extra time that could be used doing all the other stuff I have to do.

If you have the same problem that I do about not having the time or energy after a workout to immediately take a shower then you should check them out on their website here.

Happy “showering!”

I was so happy that I received purple, as it is one of my favorite colors and one of the only colors that look good on my hands. I was very happy with these nails. They were easy to apply, not too long like most press on nails, and are great quality. I highly suggest trying these out if you haven’t already!

Z-Access 3D Display Frame Review

Have you ever wished you could capture a moment like this forever? Of course you could capture it with a picture, or keep it in a box. But not only would it just be collecting dust in that box, but you can’t touch and feel it though the picture. Well now you can have the best of both worlds! This moment can not only be seen and touched, but will remain protected for as long as its in this 3D frame.

This is the information I received from the company:

The Z-Access display frame is a truly unique way to display and protect objects (memorabilia, keepsakes, art, decor, etc.) in 3D. Unlike the glass in a shadowbox or picture frame, our frame uses two membranes made of an extremely clear, extremely elastic, tear resistant film to gently hold an object within the frame. The membranes are a medical grade film that is completely acid free, UV resistant, and will not ever transfer anything to the object that it holds. The elastic material does not stick to the object that it holds and therefore will not degrade, damage, or pull away anything from even fragile hand-painted objects, and it will actually preserve and protect items better than anything on the market today. The film will adapt to be as strong or gentle as it needs to be, depending what is framed, and this frame will hold and stretch to fit almost any object that will fit in the 6″ x 4″ footprint that weighs up to 4 lbs..

There are three models of the Z-Access 3D Display Frame, and they are the Standalone, the Slimline and the Executive. The Standalone is a stationary frame with base, and it will fit in the base either horizontally or vertically. The Slimline is the same 6″ x 4″ footprint, but it is a frame within a frame so it rotates. It also fits in the same base either horizontally or vertically. The Executive is a frame within a frame and rotates like the Slimline but the outer frame is 2″ wide by .5″ thick painted wood, with the same 6″ x 4″ frame with membranes within the outer wood frame. The Executive does not come with or need the base, as the outer frame is wide enough to stand on it’s own.

My take:

I absolutely love the Z-Access frames! Not only can you protect what ever you put inside, but unlike other ways of displaying these types of items, you can still feel them! They also come in different colors, so you don’t have to worry about them not matching your decor, or you can have them match the item your are placing inside. Like these were used:

There are so many uses for the Z-Access frames! You can find many other uses for them here. Or you can make up your very own!
Luckily for us the frames are very easily put together, so that it is not easy to make mistakes during the process:
So far the only design me and my husband can agree on was to place my original wedding ring, along with the date of our wedding into our frame. Placing them into the frame was really easy, and now I can display my ring instead of it sitting in my wallet which was where it has been for over a year now. I am very happy with my 3D frame, I have never seen anything like these frames! They are great for any kind of taste, or any kind of item!
You can check out Z-Access on their website here.
You can also find them on YouTube here.
Or if you have any questions about these frames you can also contact Adam Hess by calling him at 773-220-7833. He is very friendly and I’m sure he is more then willing to answer any questions you may have!
I really love this company! Between great customer service and a great product, I’m sure you will love them too!

LA Fresh Massage Oil

So this product is another one of my favorites! I received La Fresh Arouse Massage oil to review for you. I’ve been trying to convince my husband to buy us massage oil for a very long time, but he always argues that its not worth the price or that its not worth the hassle. So I was very excited to be able to receive this massage oil. Not only have I been wanting massage oil, but this particular one is 100% natural massage oil. The LA Fresh Massage oils are made out of a 100% natural blend of olive, grapeseed, jojoba, sesame, vitamin E, and essential oils lemon, grapefruit, and orange.

I absolutely loved the way the oil smelled! It wasn’t overly powerful either, and definitely added to the massage. The oil itself was not too thick or too thin, and made massaging a lot easier. Not only did my skin feel a lot softer but after using it a couple times I noticed that my hands looked and felt better, and my nails became stronger and healthier. There are lots of ways that you can use this Massage Oil other than the traditional use. Other than use for nails and hands and of course regular massage, it can also be inhaled, diffused, or even drizzled in your bath! Don’t stop there either, I’m sure you guys either already know of some other uses for massage oil that I can’t even begin to think about!

So if you are looking for a great massage oil, or your looking for something that smells great for any of the uses listed above then I would definitely look at the rest of the La Fresh Eco-Beauty Massage oil line! They have some great options, as well as all kinds of other products not only for you, your significant other, your kids, but they also have some products for pets too! I really think that you will like this company as much as I do. They really are awesome. Not only because of their products but their customer service is great too!

You can find this and other La Fresh products on their website here.

Happy massaging!

Evol Foods Review

I recently received samples of Evol Foods Flatbread Pizzas to review. As a whole I really liked the pizzas, I just wish that they were bigger. I cooked them by wrapping them in foil, and placing them on the grill for about 20 minutes, or until the cheese was melted and the crust a golden brown.

First up for review is the Italian Sausage & Caramelized Onion pizza. I thought that this pizza tasted really good. The only thing I didn’t care for was that it seemed like it had too much garlic. I love garlic and so does my whole family, but we all thought their was just a little too much on this particular pizza. I felt like I couldn’t really taste the rest of the ingredients. Worst part was that this was the pizza I was most excited about.

Next up is the Goat Cheese, Pesto and Portabella Pizza. I left this pizza to my father to review as I am not a fan of goat cheese. But he seemed to like it.

I really liked the Grilled Chicken and Roasted Veggies Pizza. It had a lot of flavor while not having too much of one particular flavor. This one seemed to be the favorite for most of my family.

Last but most certainly not least, was my favorite out of the pizzas. The BBQ Chicken and Mozzarella Pizza. I Love BBQ pizzas so I saved this one for last both for the review, and for testing it out. The BBQ sauce was not too overwhelming which after the garlic issue I thought it would be. Everything else was great too!

So like I said, overall I really liked the pizzas. I think some changes could be made to them but I would definitely buy some of them again. If you want to find these and other products from Evol foods you can check them out on their website here.

Happy grilling!

The Original Backnobber II Review and Giveaway

So today I’m going to share with you two of my favorite products that are part of the Health and Wellness segment! The first one up is my new favorite toy. Not only does it look strange, but the name definitely turns heads.
This crazy little device is called The Original Backnobber II. Yes thats right, it’s called a Backnobber. The way I have been explaining the Backnobber II to my friends and family is that it is like a back scratcher that massages your back instead of scratching it. How cool is that? So now you don’t need to do that weird thing with your shoulders where you wiggle them in front of someone to convince them to rub your back. You know what I’m talking about! Everyone has done it at least once! If you have done this before you could really use a self massaging tool!
So the Backnobber is not just something really cool to look at. Its a really great tool that I think everyone should have. I am a stay at home full-time mommy, so I never really get to go out and spend the money it takes to get a professional massage. Not only that but my husband works full-time over an hour away from home, so there not much time for me to wiggle my shoulders in front of him and even if there was time were both way too tired to even think about massages. So when I saw this I had to have it! Now I can get a massage any time I want, and the best part is that I can decide how gentle or how hard my massage is or where I need the massage the most. No more yelling “ouch!” Or saying “to the left!” while getting a massage.
The design of the Backnobber II makes it really easy to use. Its shaped like an S, so one end is placed on your back in the area you want to massage and you use the other end to apply the pressure and to move it around to the spots you need it. I was very surprised at how simple it really was to use it. Another cool thing about this product is that its not limited to just one area of your back. In fact the Backnobber II comes with an instruction manual that not only tells you information on the Backnobber II itself but also comes with information on stretching, your different trigger points, and the best ways and places to use it.
That’s not all this amazing product offers! This product is really big. So I was really worried about it taking up too much space, or it being strictly for home use. But Luckily for us this problem has already been solved! The Backnobber comes apart for easy storage or for traveling! It also has a locking feature so that it wont come apart during use. The Backnobber II is made out of fiberglass, reinforced nylon, and it also has a satisfaction guarantee! This definitely is my new favorite product!
Want to know about some other really awesome products from Pressure Positive? Some to check out are The Tiger Tail, The Original Orbit Massager, and The Knobble II.
