Designed to allow customers to create the perfect shade for themselves,

the Nail Polish Making Kit and the Lip Gloss Making Kit come with five different specialty mineral pigment powders and unlimited color possibilities.

Used by top professionals in the United States and Europe, the nail polish dries very quickly and is long-lasting.  While the Nail Polish Making Kit is free of formaldehyde and other harsh chemicals, the Lip Gloss Making Kit and Deluxe Lip Gloss Making Kit contain nourishing and ultra-hydrating ingredients that keep lips soft.

“At DIY Kit Creations, we have embraced the growing desire for individuals to share their authenticity and unique personalities through our innovative products.

We offer everything our customers need to enhance their look,” said founder Kyle Lippincott.  “It is also important to us that we push toward more eco-friendly options like cellulose-based biodegradable glitter.  We are also proud that all of our kits are handmade in the U.S.A.”

DIY Kit Creations offers a care-free, fun way to express your individual style and is the perfect solution to finding the exact color nail polish or lip color for a particular outfit one is wearing to an event. The kits can be enjoyed by children as young as 9 years old (adult supervision recommended).

My 12-year-old had an absolute blast making these lip glosses!

She’s very hands-on so this kept her attention very well. As a homeschooling family, this was a fun project!

The mixing and attention to detail was a perk and definite learning experience on how to make products such as these.

The end results were fantastic! I have my very own set of various lip gloss colors to carry with me. I’m still using a color a day. They definitely keep my lips soft!

My boo bean doesn’t like lipgloss but was excited to make them for her mama. 😉 In fact, she wants another kit to make more!!

I would like to thank the folks over at DIY Kit Creations for this opportunity to try out the products. We are hooked and highly recommend this for girls ages 9+. Would be a fun activity for a sleepover etc!

I received samples of Jackon’s Sweet Potato Chips ($48.49 value for 12-pack) in exchange for this product fave segment. Any opinions expressed here are honest and my own.

I’m so pleased to share that Jackson’s,

the Snack Super™ brand powered by sweet potatoes and ancestral oils has taken the snack aisle by storm with flavors unlike any consumers have experienced before.

Jackson’s—empowered by its new, state-of-the-art production facility and emboldened by its new packaging, branding, expanded product line, and website—stands poised to upset the snacking status quo forever.

Shark Tank alum, Jackson’s, believes you shouldn’t have to compromise between snacks that taste great and those you can feel great about eating.

Realizing the true potential of sweet potatoes and ancestral oils to deliver a superior snacking experience, Jackson’s has proudly planted its flag as the only brand producing in a facility 100% devoted to sweet potato chips.

Jackson’s sources only non-GMO heirloom sweet potatoes

directly from farmers and cooks them low and slow in ancestral oils—like coconut and avocado— to create a superior version of a classic kettle chip.

The expanded product line includes Sea Salt Sweet Potato Chips with Coconut Oil, Sea Salt Sweet Potato Chips with Avocado Oil, Spicy Tomatillo Sweet Potato Chips with Avocado Oil, and Carolina BBQ Sweet Potato Chips with Avocado OIl. All varieties are Non-GMO Project Verified, vegan, gluten-free, paleo, nut-free and kosher, and are available in freshly-redesigned 1.5oz and 5oz bags on www.jacksonschips.com.

If you like sweet potato fries or anything sweet potato,

you may end up liking or even loving these sweet potato chips! The first few crunches take a minute to really take in the flavor but it’s a healthier snacking option for sure. I love that they use Avacado oil and Coconut oil.

I received:

  • Avocado Oil-Carolina BBQ
  • Coconut Oil-Sea Salt
  • Avocado Oil-Sea Salt
  • Avocado Oil-Spicy Tomatillo

I think my favorite has to be the spicy tomatillo! The flavor just pops and you feel better about what you are eating instead of those high in fats and greasy potato chip brands!

I would like to thank everyone over at Jackson’s for providing us with generous samples of your product. We highly recommend them and are still enjoying the sweet potato goodness today and in the days ahead!

I received a sample box of Sugar Plum gourmet goodies ($39.99 perfect size gift assortment) in exchange for this product fave segment. Any opinions expressed here are honest and my own.

Sugar Plum has the Perfect Goodies for a Delicious Care Package!

This box is a delicious combination of salty and sweet with a sampling of some of Sugar Plum’s most popular delights. Included are chocolate-covered treats: an assortment of chocolate-dipped potato chips covered with M&Ms, chocolate-dunked pretzels, and the famous chocolate-drizzled popcorn.

This assortment makes an ideal gift or care package for anyone,

any time of year!

The chocolate drizzled popcorn was a hit and disappeared pretty quickly. Of course, the chocolate-covered treats were fabulous too.

Anything with chocolate, you will find me trying out any time of day. I have tried Sugar Plum’s other amazing treats in the past and they don’t disappoint!

I would like to thank the folks over at Sugar Plum for sending us this amazing box of goodness! We highly recommend them. If you are a sugar tooth or a chocolate freak, this is perfect for you, OR with Christmas drawing closer, they make perfect gifts!

Nuzest Clean Lean Plant-Based Protein Bars

I received samples of Nuzest Protein bars ($19.99 value assorted box) in exchange for this product fave segment. Any opinions expressed here are honest and my own.

Recent times have identified the importance of prioritizing our health and wellness,

and maintaining a balanced diet to help us feel healthy, happy, and energized.

This is one of the reasons more consumers are reaching for healthy and nutritious snacks throughout the day, rather than the high-carb, high-sugar convenience options of the past.

Nuzest’s best-selling Clean Lean Protein is now available

in a convenient bar for when you’re on the go. Redesigned for an even better taste thanks to a new and improved formula, the vegan protein bars are nutritionally balanced, with up to 13 grams of protein per bar, along with being a good source of fiber.

The Clean Lean Protein bars are 100% plant-based and made with minimal ingredients for maximum flavor. Made from premium European Golden Peas, they deliver the essential building blocks for vitality, repair, recovery, and muscle growth.

The Clean Lean Protein Bars are available in three delicious plant-based flavors, for healthy indulgence in every bite—Coconut & Lemon, Almond & Vanilla, and Peanut Butter & Chocolate.

Nuzest has wrapped up all this natural goodness

into a deliciously handy Clean Lean Protein Bar, so you can all enjoy our Clean Lean Protein whenever and wherever you are.

Shop the Clean Lean Protein Bars HERE.

These are the flavors I received to try and in a nifty branded box:

  • Peanut Butter and Chocolate
  • Coconut and Lemon
  • Almond and Vanilla

I also received a sample, included in our box, of their new Good Green Vitality Bars. These are packed with plant-based ingredients, essential vitamins and minerals, probiotics, superfoods, and more!

Okay, so these protein bars are really good!

I always get apprehensive of flavors for really healthy, plant-based type foods, but I must say, these are great! I got to try out the chocolate-peanut butter! Yum!

I definitely feel healthier consuming these bars rather than those other protein bars out there that are filled with sugar, etc. My oldest daughter, now in college, is a dance major and is always on the go. She is enjoying these bars and says that “they are really good!”

Hank: Haze The Shave Aid

This one is for the guys!!

An eco-luxury shave product like no other, created with uncommon wood and plant essences to evoke the senses.

The time has come to focus on your skin and hair with a holistic approach. Fall is here, so there is no longer time to delay getting yourself smooth, clean, and looking sharp during the season and beyond.

My hubby gave this product a shot. He said the product is very creamy and not foamy. He said he did not experience razor burn which is a plus!

TrapStix LipBalm

I received samples of TrapStix Lipbalm ($5.00 value) in exchange for this post. Any opinions that are expressed here are honest and my own.

The holidays just became a little more fun, flavorful, and trendy!

TrapStix Lip Balm is the brand to add to your wish list for holiday gifts that are as fun to give as to receive. The hip-hop-inspired lip balms create the perfect playlist for smooth, baby-soft lips during the upcoming cold-weather season.

Drop a lip balm in someone’s stocking and share the super dope flavors this holiday (just be sure to get a few for yourself, too!).

A black-owned business, the brand was started by Howard University student Aysia Hilliard who blended her love of lip balm, hip hop, and pop to create the on-trend brand.

Her ingenuity continues to grow as she adds more all-natural items to the collection. The tubes are bigger than traditional chapsticks and more affordable, making them a must-have for the Gen Z crowd.

Whether seasonal gifts or everyday must-haves enjoy the shopping experience filled with flavor and cool musical vibes, with 20 offerings and two-holiday favorites. Collect your favorites and share what you’ve collected via social media to join the TrapStix movement (there’s even a collection case to display and store your choices).

Photo Credit: Kelly Clair

The offerings are formulated with gentle, nurturing ingredients

such as grapeseed oil, precious coconut oil, and moisturizing sweet almond oil to nourish dry and delicate lips.

A touch of beeswax creates a lasting barrier against harsh elements. Gentle notes of signature flavors compose a soft fragrance balm you’ll never want to be without.

I selected a flavor from the POPStix line and the TRAPStix line.

  • TrapStix Pop S’Mores
  • PopStix Katy Berry

These are so much fun! I love the scents and how they make my lips nice and soft. You can find me applying each flavor received at least once a day!! Love the concept, so cute!

I would like to thank the folks over at Trapstix Lip Balm for giving me the opportunity to try the products!
