Kyasi IPad 2/3/4 Designer Belt Buckle Case Review



This case is absolutely beautiful. It has the feel of real leather. I have the one in light beige with the dark brown buckle belt. It opens quite easily with a snap button under the strap. When you do close it though, you have to make sure to pull the strap open and then snap it closed. You then push the strap through to close it snugly. I love how easy it is to put in and take out the iPad from the case itself. There is a little velcro strap that you can hide under it once it's inside the case. The case holds up very well in the standing position for when you want to watch videos or a movie. You can also angle it in different positions. I really wish they would make a case like this for iPad mini's because its literally perfect. This is the best iPad case I have ever seen and the price is not that bad at all for what you get. This will help protect your iPad and make it look stylish at the same time. They also have a few different color variations. The true color of this case is the top picture. #KyasiBeltBuckle

Natural Stacks Natural Whey to Collagen Protein in Cacao Review


My boyfriend was looking for a protein powder to include with his new diet plus work outs. He is the type of person who generally hates protein bars and shakes. It's really tough to get him to take anything, I swear. I told him Natural Stacks had a natural protein product he should try out. It comes in two different flavors which are Raw Ecuadorian Cacao and Madagascar Vanilla Bean. It has no preservatives, no artificial colors, no gluten and no GMO. I personally tend to steer towards vanilla flavored shakes but he wanted to go with the Cacao (chocolate). It didn't matter though cause I was intent on trying it along with him.

Why do you need protein? Protein before the workout can help minimize muscle damage caused by exercise while supplying the components of muscle (amino acids) to help rebuild the tissue. Protein after the workout and especially immediately post training, delivers the muscles more amino acids for rebuilding at a time when muscle repair/synthesis has its greatest potential. Without supplying protein at this point the body will not maximize its repair and rebuilding process thus limiting the gains from exercise.

I ordered it easily through Amazon and it came relatively quickly. (I have Prime). It came perfectly packaged and I was surprised at how huge the bag was. This whopping bag is 2 pounds of awesomeness. You don't need to worry about a scoop since one comes included in the bag for your convenience. On the bag it says you can mix it with just some cold water or into a smoothie. Do yourself the favor and mix it with something sweet unless you're into raw cacao by itself. (I'm a fan of milk chocolate). We decided to come up with a cookies and cream type of mix.


We used three cookies and 6 ounces of 2% milk with a dash of sugar. It actually adds about 4 grams of extra protein which is perfect in addition to the 16 grams in one scoop. Make sure to use a blender when making this because the collagen in here won't really allow you to hand mix with a spoon. I just have a simple little smoothie GE blender I got from Walmart which works fine.


Here's the finished cookies and cream protein shake. I think we needed to blend it for just another 10 seconds more but it was fine. Trial and error. It still tasted fantastic. My boyfriend loved it and he is the really picky one. This definitely helped to power him through his lifting workouts and gave him all the protein he needed to help him with his personal gains. I totally recommend trying it out for yourself. Natural Stacks is a dependable company with excellent customer service. #NaturalStacks

Wearever Black Buster Brown Socks Review + Giveaway



These socks are adorable and comfortable. I love how loose and breathable these socks are on my feet. These are great to wear with dress shoes. I got mine in black and size 7.5-9. You can easily fold them down or pull them up to your preference. There's nothing but high quality material in these socks. I'm happy knowing they won't warp on me like cheaper kinds do. These are perfect for kids or teens in private schools who constantly have to wear dress shoes. This is also made perfect for diabetics who have problem with foot and ankle swelling. The material allows for extra room when needed. They come in a pack of three. So basically you would just need to buy two packs to have enough for a week of wear. It's a great deal for some great socks. They also come in white but I just prefer black since you won't be able to see any stain wear on the bottom of them.#WeareverUS

Annie's Homegrown Snacks Review



For the past 25 years, Annie's has been nourishing families with simple, down-to-earth foods that taste great and are easy to love. Their passionate team seeks out the best real ingredients Mother Earth has to offer, harvesting pure, natural flavors to make delicious foods every family can feel good about.

Sounds wonderful, doesn't it? It is! I was so thrilled and excited to get to try these out with family and friends to construct views on it. I've seen Annie's products around lately more so often at my local Super Target. I have always wondered what it would taste like but didn't take the plunge. Hello! I feel like I have only been missing out on some of the best foods I have ever tried.

My 11 year old has a personal preference for the Bunny Grahams. They are really delicious especially in a cup of yogurt. I LOVED the organic Cheddar snack mix. The pretzels mixed in there was a nice touch. We've been snacking here on Gold Fish for the past years. It's something I grew up with and knew how it tasted so I never bothered to try other alternatives. I think everyone ultimately loved the cheddar bunnies over Gold Fish. It just has such a wholesome taste to it. It just tastes more naturally delicious.

The fruit snacks were interesting. They had a real fruit juice taste to them. I can feel better about letting my kids eat these fruit snacks instead of the overly processed junk. Don't get me wrong..I love my Gushers because I grew up with the stuff, but I think I would rather offer my kids something a little better for them.

Okay, so on to my favorite part taste wise. I LOVED the pizza poppers so much! It tasted like I was eating fresh stuffed shells, I swear! The sauce just has this delicious fresh taste. A little sad to see there was only 11 in the tiny box though. I would say buy a larger box of these pizza poppers. I also wish they were prepacked in a clear plastic bag in the box.

All in all, I have to say Annie's is just a true honest company with a wholesome taste to their products. I thank MomsMeet for allowing myself and my group of friends & family to try everything out. Everyone was pleased to take back some coupons home to go buy a few products themselves. Give Annie's an honest try ...you won't regret it.

Sweetsation Therapy Organic C*Perfect Skin Foaming Face Cleanser with Vitamin C Review


 Everyone should have a good cleanser for their skin. There are so many different kinds out there but I think my favorite type has to be the foaming kind. It's very convenient to use and doesn't leave my skin feeling oily. Sweetsation products always smell heavenly to me. In this cleanser there are many wonderful ingredients like Papaya, Black Willow Bark and Vitamin C help to keep your skin soft and clear. Make sure to check out the full list of ingredients below.

Ingredients
Purified Water, Saponified Organic oils of Cocos Nucifera (Coconut Oil), Organic Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower), and Organic Castor Seed, Kosher Vegetable Glycerin, Guar Gum, Juglans regia (Walnut) Seed Oil , Organic Argania spinosa (Argan) Oil), Pyrus Malus Extract (Apple), Citrullus lanatus Extract (Watermelon), Fragaria vesca Extract (Strawberry), Musa spp Extract (Banana), Carica Papaya (Papaya), Organic Urtica Dioica (Nettle), Organic Matricaria Recutita (Chamomile), Organic Calendula Officinalis (Calendula), Organic Litsea cubeba (Litsea) Oil, Vanilla Absolute, Organic Ganoderma Lucidum (Reishi), Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C), Hyaluronic Acid, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber), Organic Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea), Macrocystis Pyrifera (Kelp), Citric Acid, Rosemary Seed Extract.


 The cleanser came packaged really well. You need to pump it down like three times on the first go to get the amount you need. I would say regularly just two pumps to get the amount you need. It lathers and foams up really nicely in your hands. This smells so amazing to me. I love the citrus scent on it. It really makes my skin feel so refreshed and clean after washing with it. I could see this bottle lasting me a good while. I will keep this in my bathroom for my morning and night cleansing.

Supernova Orion Ultimate Survival Rechargeable LED Lantern and Power Bank Review



This is the coolest little lantern I have ever seen. It really doesn't weigh that much and easy to pack up if needed for outdoor use. It comes with regular batteries for it and the rechargeable batteries which you put in the bottom of it. You also have an easy to access usb slot for you to plug in any device needing a charge. The handles can be smoothly moved up to open the lantern and carry it. Once you open up the lantern it turns on automatically. The light blue button on the front controls the lighting functions. You have a super bright white light as your first default choice. You can then press the button in the front and dim it a little bit. You also have a red light and it also has a flashing function on it kind of like a distress signal. The lantern comes with an S clip type of attachment which I am guessing is to hang it easily from high areas. It also comes with a usb wire so that you can recharge the lantern. It's pretty much perfect,compact and super useful. This is actually perfect for my super creepy basement since the light is so bright on it. I love it and can't wait to take it with me out and about this summer for camping use. #OrionPowerBank

Harry Potter Keyring and Bracelet Set Review



This bracelet is adorable. I'm not crazy about Harry Potter but I can appreciate the concept of it. I just really love the design on it. It's simple and can be worn with anything. The key chain is also cute and let's everyone know what you like. The bracelet was very easy to put on and the key chain opened up easily as well. The perfect addition to the matching necklace from Graceful Goods. I love it! #harrypotter

Just take me home Fashion Cat iPhone 6 Case Review



This phone case is adorable! The case itself is very durable, clean and bright. The case is polished and smooth. The fashionista cat on the case is something I really haven't seen around before. I think it looks really classy, simple and fun. The case was easy to pop on and take off. All the buttons show through correctly and I think it would be a neat phone case to have. #JTMHiphone6case

Armor Fit Clear-Frosted iPhone 6 Case Review



I do love the fact that this phone case is slim and simplistic in nature. It was very easy to pop onto my phone and to take it off. I think it's cool how you can still see the phone design under the case. My only qualm is the fact that it could get scratched easily so you have to be careful with that aspect of it. Mine came with a swirly scratch mark on the back of it which personally bothered me a little bit since I wanted it to be completely smooth on the back. (You can see it to the left of the apple logo as it curves downward). Oh well, it's still a cute little case and fits into your pocket easily. It's also a great price. I have the one in black but it does come in many different colors like clear, gold, green ,pink and red. #ArmorFitCases

Kuuk Silicone Ice Cube Tray (Twin Pack) Review



Gone are the days of fumbling with a big plastic ice tray that needed all your might to pop ice cubes out. A lot of kitchen items are using silicone nowadays which is making life a lot easier. These silicone trays are small and easy to fit into my freezer. I love the bright colors on them. I filled them both up with water and kinda stacked them over each other. I took them out the next day and was amazed at how easy it was to just twist slightly and out the ice cubes popped. They kinda have a neat little design on the bottoms as well. I actually love to use ice cubes to keep my cats water bowls nice and cool so this works out great for me. I'm very happy with the easy of use. #KuukSiliconeIceCubeTray
