I was chosen by Mom-Spot.com (the site I guest blog for…though admittedly, the holiday season was so crazy chaotic that I have been absent for a while) to review Aspen Mulling Cider Spices.
The product came in single packages, and, being new to mulling anything, I was really excited to try it out. I opened it up and the aroma of cloves, nutmeg, and cinnamon immediately hit my nose. I love the scent profile those spices make, so I was even more excited to try it out. The instructions say to add it to 8 oz. of apple cider or juice, red wine, tea, or brandy. It can be served hot or cold. Continue reading

I was asked to test-drive a new (FREE!!) weight-loss/dieting/exercise app and website called SlimKicker, and host a giveaway (details at the bottom!). For the past week, I have been having a ball testing it out!
What is SlimKicker? SlimKicker is a calorie tracking app that takes all your diet & fitness goals and turns them into a level-up game. You upload a picture of something you’ll reward yourself such as a pair of shoes, and when you reach a certain number of points, we’ll remind you to reward yourself with that. SlimKicker also has a recipe section for diets like Medifast and Weight Watchers.
