Little Northern Bakehouse gluten free bread

This is a pretty good gluten free bread! My little one was not overly keen on it (she is used to 100% whole wheat bread) but I liked it! It's super light and I'd say fluffy. I have to admit though I enjoyed it way better toasted than just "as is" - it was a bit crumbly when "as is" while toasted it had just the right texture. Would definitely recommend to anyone who is gluten intolerant or celiac, or vegan.  The price is also reasonable for a gluten free vegan product - we all know gluten free items tend to be pricier than regular items.

This bread comes in three varieties - Millet & Chia; Seeds & Grains; Cinnamon & Raisin and can be found in a number of stores in their gluten free section. I got mine at a local Save On Foods store.

STOTT PILATES Yoga Mat, 0.25"/6mm/X-Large, Purple/Grey

Super comfy mat for pilates and yoga! It is slightly longer and definitely thicker than your usual mat. The color is rich purple on one side and dark grey on the other. It offers great grip on both sides - I have super slippery hardwood floor and no matter what exercise I do, it stays put. The grey side has a tiny bit less grip when you are on it but still enough to make me think it might not be the best option for poses that require sliding. Perfect mat for a tall person but good for short people as well - more room to roam :) I also loved that it came in minimal packaging - yay for the environment - though if it came in a carry bag that would have been even more awesome!
All in all, very good product. If anything changes with long term use, will update the review. I have had the same mat for a few years so I will most certainly be comparing this one to my old mat.

Viva Naturals Sweet Almond Oil 16 fl oz, 100% Pure and Hexane Free

This oil is absolutely amazing. It comes well sealed and with a pump so depending on you use it, you can either pour it from the bottle or use the pump. I absolutely LOVE that this oil is SCENT-FREE. I get migraines from a lot of scents, including some of the drug/department store body lotions and/or oils so having something like this is perfect for me. There is absolutely NO smell to it - there is no smell when you sniff the bottle, and there is no smell once you apply it on your skin.

You can either apply it directly on your skin to moisturize, you can apply it on a cotton ball and use as a makeup remover; or you can make DIY cosmetic products from it.
So far I have used it on my skin and hair directly, and I tried a DIY lip balm - the recipe I had was not the best so I still have some searching to do to be able to make the perfect lip balm.

So far this product works better for me than coconut oil - I feel like even the best quality coconut oil leaves weird smell on my skin but this lovely almond oil does not.

You can get it here.

Inflatable lounger

Awesome lounger. It comes in a carry bag so is easy to take along anywhere. To inflate it, you just move it against the wind to push the air in (or you can take a couple quick steps to push the air in). I was worried I'd have to look for a pump but nope, this lounger inflates super easily with very little effort. The color is true to the photo on here. My daughter had a lot of fun jumping on it - she is about 30lbs so it was fine though I wouldn't recommend this to a 200lbs adult haha. Overall, very satisfied! Awesome item to add to your background relaxation and easy to take along for camping or even hiking.

Workout shorts

These shorts are great if you are looking for short shorts! They do fit as they should - pretty much all of my pants are medium and these shorts in medium fit me great - I was worried they'd be on the smaller side but they are not! Plus they do have a stretch to them so even if I gained/lost a few pounds they will still fit. The material is nice and sturdy and reminds me of the big sport chains sports clothing. The colour stays as when I first received the shorts and I already washed them several times after a sweaty exercise - absolutely no fading!
The waistband folds over so you can wear the shorts as super low waist pair, or like regular shorts - personally with my floppy belly I don't fold the waist over because the regular waist makes me look slimmer - and the waistband doesn't roll down with movement like some stretchy waistbands do!
I absolutely recommend these.

Fabric details from the manufacturer:
65% cotton /23%Nylon and 12% spandex

Non-dairy frozen dessert

Omg this is so good! So silky and smooth :) If you normally enjoy dairy, you will enjoy this frozen dessert as well! It's super rich and creamy, and I could honestly eat the entire tub in one sitting. It was so good I did not want to share with hubby haha....but I did! I love that I can confidently serve this as a dessert with all of our friends - we have some that have to eat gluten free or dairy free (or both) but none of them is allergic to nut so this is perfect!
I got to try this product for free thanks to but will be definitely buying again!

What a day....

When you genuinely offer help with grammar to someone who teaches a language but their FB posts on the official page have mistakes - and they remove you from the group as a result, while the grammar mistakes in their posts stay....I just have to shake my head. 
I was hoping to be more involved with this organization...but clearly they are not interested in my help, despite always asking for more volunteers....well at least they are not interested in someone who could help them makes things better, may be if I just joined and never spoke up I would have been fine....but I can't keep my mouth shut when I see obvious grammar mistakes in official posts :(

It's really disappointing but at the same time - I'd rather find out now that I'd just be wasting my time.
