This awesome WonderEsque Spiralizer Tri Blade Spiral Slicer + FREE Cleaning Brush came in the mail today for  a product review. You can read my Amazon review By Clicking Here.

zoodles

I love spaghetti but I can’t handle the gluten in the pasta. I have tried the gluten-free ones, but they really raise my blood sugar. I have heard about the “zoodles” or noodles make out of zucchini.

Here is a little video of me making my zucchini noodles with the WonderEsque Spiralizer.

Now the simple recipe

I made my sauce the usual way.  ⇒A jar of organic sauce from the store.⇐ ☺️ added some cooked grass-fed ground beef and let  it simmer on the stove while I made my zoodles.

I didn’t cook my zoodles because I knew the hot sauce would. I wanted them to stay firm like an aldente noodle. Plus raw is better for you.

The zucchini noodles did release some moisture when the sauce cooked them a little, but that was okay.

look at that “noodley” goodness

So it was a simple as that. No cook and gluten-free noodles for your spaghetti sauce.

I’m curious to see what other recipes I can make with my spiralizer. I would love to hear you ideas and favorite recipes. Just leave a comment below.

Now I Can Foundation Fundraiser

click to purchase wraps

 

What are some of the best feelings in the world? I can think of two… the feeling you get when you look down at your hands and see a beautiful manicure and the feeling you get when you give to a great children’s fundraiser! 

Jamberry makes it easy to do both! Purchase these beautiful exclusive wraps designed for the Now I Can Foundation Fundraiser, and not only do you get a salon quality manicure, you also contribute to a great cause.

What a great feeling it is when you or someone else notices your manicure and you know that not only does your mani look awesome, but you helped a deserving child get the therapy they so desperately needed. I know that makes me feel great.

Jamberry is pleased to be offering two new charity wraps to support the Now I Can Foundation, one in adult and one in our junior sizeThe Now I Can wraps are now available for purchase and will be offered through December 31, 2015.

 

Now I Can Foundation Fundraiser

 

Now I Can helps children with disabilities of all ages reach their full potential through therapy programs that help relieve pain and improve their strength and independence. Those with cerebral palsy, spina bifida, traumatic brain injury, or developmental delays all benefit from these intensive therapy programs. You can learn more about Now I Can on their website, found here: http://www.nowican.org/

 

Now I Can Foundation Fundraiser

 

Jamberry will donate $2.00 for each wrap sold! One hundred percent of donations made from sales of the wraps will go to fund grants for families who cannot afford treatments. Fifty percent of the donations will go into a general grant fund for anyone in need. The other 50% will be held in grants set aside for families of Jamberry Consultants who are in need of the three week session of intensive therapy.

Jamberry Launch Party & Giveaway

I am so excited I am an official Jamberry Nails Independent Consultant I have just fallen in love with Jamberry Nails since I was offered a sample to do a blog review and giveaway two months ago. I knew I was hooked when I tried to paint my nails after removing my Jamberry wraps. It was terrible! I hate the smell of fingernail polish, I hate waiting for them to dry, I hate smudging my wet nails, I get polish all over my cuticles and just end up with a mess, and then the next day or so my polish starts to chip off my nails and so on. You know what I’m talking about. Going and getting professional manicures is time consuming and expensive, plus who knows how clean the tools are that the manicurist uses. Yuck! 

Jamberry Nails Sheet breakdown into 2 pedis and 2 manis plus accent nails
Each sheet of wraps provides you with 2 manis and 2 pedis and accent nails or extra nails.

 

Applying Jamberry wraps at home is so easy and convenient to do. I was a little intimidated at first but after I did a few fingers it was so easy. Your fingernails or toenails look professionally done at a fraction of the price. Each sheet of wraps is $15 and you get 2 pedicures, 2 manicures and 8 accent nails which is a great value. Each manicure lasts around 2 weeks and each pedicure last for around 4 weeks.

 

There are over 300 designs to choose from and you can even create your own designs with Jamberry’s Nail Art Studio. Create one of a kind nail wraps by uploading your own images to the design platform or even customize a classic pattern using our pre-loaded patterns and shapes.

Keomi Skincare Organic Handmade Soap Review

Keomi Skincare

Organic All Natural Handmade Soap

I was given the opportunity to try a sample of Keomi Skincare’s Green Tea Goddess Handmade soap for a review. Keomi Skincare soaps are all natural and have no chemical preservatives, they are vegan and cruelty free. Keomi Skincare uses only the highest quality ingredients available and their products are backed with a 100% guarantee.

These are the ingredients of the Green Tea Goddess soap that were printed on the wrapper of the bar I received.

Organic Handmade Luxury Soap for Men and Women

I was sent the Green Tea Goddess handmade soap to review.  It has a wonderful fresh green scent that can be enjoyed by either men or women. It did not have a sweet or floral scent that men would not want to use. The Green Tea Goddess soap is scented with oils of clary sage, orange and clove, so it has a fresh green fragrance. Keomi Skincare Organic Natural Handmade soaps are cold-pressed and use pure aromatherapy grade essential oils with a base that is a blend of over 10 USDA certified organic vegetable, fruit and seed oils.

This is a sample size bar that I received for review. This is not what the full-sized bar looks like.

I first tried the soap by washing my hands in the sink. I wanted to see how the soap lathered and how it felt on the skin. There was a natural, rich, luxurious lather because the soaps are super-fatted leaving my hands feeling supple and moisturized.

Later that day I took a shower and used my Keomi Skincare soap as bath soap and washed my entire body. Again I got a luxurious lather from the soap.  I felt so clean and fresh afterward. My skin did not feel dry and tight, nor was the soap irritating to my sensitive skin. Instead I was left feeling moisturized and with a subtle fragrance on my skin. I do not like strong fragrances as they give me a headache, so I was pleased with the light scent that was left on my skin.

I really enjoyed my Keomi Skincare soap and would love to try the other soaps that they offer.
