Gabriella’s Kitchen skinnypasta™

Gabriella’s Kitchen skinnypasta™

Nice pasta - earthy and tasty! The package says 4 servings, in my family it was three, as my husbands eats quite a bit and my toddler as well! That makes it a bit expensive.
The taste was closer to fresh pasta than our usual whole wheat dry pasta...for that big thumbs up!
It was a bit hard to track this product down, I wish more stores carried it!

Thank you SocialNature for the coupon for a free sample.

Natural Cough Remedy by St Francis Herb Farm

This product tastes surprisingly nicely. If you have full on bronchitis like I do right now, don't expect it to go away, but things did improve for me once I started using this syrup. I think if I just had a cold - cough, this syrup would help a great deal!

I will be buying once I run out and I will definitely recommend this to others.

Find more info about this remedy here.

Knorr Selects White Cheddar Rice

I have received a sample packet of Knorr Selects White Cheddar rice with my purchase from

I tried the sample and it was pretty nice. I quite enjoyed the flavor and it was easy to make.

One thing to note though, I had a bit leftover and when I heated up, it was not as good as I would have hoped for. It's definitely meant to be eaten fresh.

Decent side dish when you are in a pinch. Overall, I'd give three and half stars out of five :)

Playtex Diaper Genie Diaper Pail System Refills, 3 pack

I might have gotten a bad batch but one of the rings had the plastic "bag" stuck and when I tried to put it in the genie as directed, it ripped.
Considering these are technically really overpriced garbage bags, I was not very impressed to loose even an inch of the refill due to malfunction.

The diaper genie does keep odors out so I will keep using it - but I seriously wish the refills were at a more reasonable price.

Pro Beauty 1" Professional Extra Long Curling Wand, 1 Count

Overall, a nice iron if you are not spoiled like me and used to very high quality professional grade irons. I am giving it three stars out of five.
I will list some pros and cons....

- it is longer than other irons so awesome for long hair
- it heats up super fast
- multiple heat settings
- very comfortable handle
- manual display (my preference)
- comes with a glove to protect your hand against the heat

- if you like ceramic irons, this one is not ceramic
- the temp setting is not a digital display (not an issue for me, but speaking with a couple of friends, they insist that is the best thing ever)
- I needed to use quite a bit of product to get the promised all day long curls and the highest setting, even though my hair is not super thick

All in all, a great product for someone who isn't super high maintenance when it comes to their irons or someone who cannot or doesn't want to spend the money on a professional grade iron. It does the job. I do use my irons on a daily basis so over time I got super picky - it took me a while to find an iron that I am happy with. With that being said, this iron is most certainly superior to those sold in drug stores.

You can purchase yours here.

The Motherhood Collection 6 Pack ULTRA SOFT Baby Bath Washcloths, Rayon from Bamboo Towels, Perfect Baby Gift | Baby Registry | Baby Shower Gift, 10"x10"

Okay I am in love. I thought I had nice washcloths for my baby until I opened a package of these! They are so incredibly SOFT. I have not touched a softer washcloth yet. The box they come in is super cute and each washcloth is individually "taped". I started using them on my baby and I just couldn't resist using them for myself as well. This is seriously a perfect baby shower gift or a gift for anyone with sensitive skin.
The only thing I wish was slightly different is a variety of colours in one box instead of all of them being white - so that each family member can claim their colour :)

Get yours here.
