Silicone Cupcake Liners by Galley Essentials #bestsiliconebakingcups



When it comes to baking in my home there is always something missing. Whether that missing item is flour or cupcake liners, I promise I will have to make a run to the store to pick something up. I recently had the opportunity to test out Silicone cupcake molds from Galley Essentials

.




Not only did the silicone cupcake molds save me from having to run to the store, but they put a BIG smile on my kids faces.

The cupcake liners are easy to use and just as easy to clean! The bright colors are appealing to all ages and brighten up a table for guests.

My kids thought that the liners were fun to run around the house with, but they were both willing to give them up so I could start the next batch of cupcakes. I did find that if you are making cupcakes from a box, it would be better to buy two sets. 12 liners is not quite enough for a boxed cake mix. They are well worth the cost and would make a great gift for any baker you may know.

Australian Tea Tree Oil Review #teatreeoil




Did you know that tea tree oil is one of the most versatile essential oils. You can use it to naturally fight acne, toenail fungus, lice, yeast Infections, skin tags, cold sores, dandruff, ringworm, fleas, warts, psoriasis, and more.

You can use it to make your own shampoo, lotion, soap, face mask or cleaner, body wash, and toothpaste. Make sure that you find a non-diluted product before you purchase.

I am not brave enough to stick tea tree oil in my mouth to clean my teeth. Have you smelled tea tree oil? It is not minty fresh. It does not stink by any means, but it does not smell like the way I want my toothpaste to smell. But knowing that tea tree oil is natural and not filling my cabinets with harsh chemicals makes me feel better. I know that I am not alone in my thinking either. Would you want to use a chemical created in a lab to treat ringworm on your child? Or would you feel better placing a little tea tree oil on your child to eliminate the pesky fungus?

In my house, we have a problem with acne. I found that placing a few drops of tea tree oil on a q-tip and applying it directly to a pimple before bed mad the redness and swelling go down. I also found that if i mixed a few drops of tea tree oil in aloe vera and applied it to my face, by skin stayed soft and did not dry out from the tea tree oil.

Just like most other people, I still have store bought moisturizers too. I have store bought facial moisturizers that contain chemicals. I have taken a small amount of the store bought moisturizer and mixed in a few drops of tea tree oil and keep it in a small container with a screw on lid. I use this in the morning under my make-up to give me a little added acne protection during the day.

After using tea tree oil in my home and seeing how versatile it can really be, I will never be without it again.

Niacinamide Moisturizer Cream by InstaNatural Review #InstaNatural




As I get older, I realize how important it is to take good care of myself both inside and out. Recently I was given the opportunity to try Niacinamide Moisturizer Cream by InstaNatural. All creams have claims that I want to be true, but most do not hold up. Or if the claims do hold up, they only last a few hours and then they are gone again.

Naturally, when I first started to use the Niacinamide cream, I was hesitant to see any results or have them last. Even so, i was still willing to try. Here is what I found:

After 1 use: My skin was noticeably soft and smooth. It left an all over even tone to my skin without a heavy or greasy feel, although it is a little sticky feeling when it dries.

After 1 week:  I noticed that skin under my eyes appeared a little brighter. My skin was noticeably soft, even after washing my face. My skin tone was still even after using the product.

After 2 weeks: My skin is still feeling soft all day long and my dark circles are definitely less dark! Even with just using just a teeny bit of product each time.

After 3 weeks: The difference is visible. I am not talking about looking ten years younger. The results that I am seeing are clearer, smoother, and healthier looking skin on my face. The dark spots are not standing out as drastically and there is a nice healthy glow to my skin.

After just a few weeks of use, the  Niacinamide Moisturizer Cream is holding up to my test.

Best Nut Milk Bag Review



For the last couple of years I have really started to pay attention to what I eat. I am working toward completly eliminating processed foods and going to all fresh foods. This has been a long hard goal to obtain, but my baby steps are getting to be bigger baby steps day by day.

I recently had an opportunity to try the Best Nut Milk Bag and really loved it. I know that most people are probably thinking, what the heck would you need that for? Well there is more than one use, trust me.

You can use the Best Nut Milk Bag to cold brew your coffee. If you have not cold brewed coffee yet, you need to try it! It makes coffee less bitter and brings out the oils more that running hot water through it. By using a nut milk bag, you can keep the grinds out of your coffee with ease.

Make your own Almond milk. Now, this is a little more challenging and takes more time and money that picking up a container at your local grocery store but the taste and freshness cannot be matched.

My favorite use of all, making my own Greek yogurt. After letting the yogurt process, I use the nut milk bag to strain out some of the liquids in the yogurt to get a thick and creamy Greek yogurt.  I used to think that this was a horribly messy task, but with the size of the Best Nut Milk Bag, it was a breeze to filter off the liquid I wanted and even easier to clean up.

If you are looking for ways to improve your health or ways to add a little ease to your current processes, this is a great and affordable way to do so.
