OOFOS OOriginal Sports Sandals


When it’s hot outside you want to wear something on your feet so they can breathe probably flip-flops. I recently discovered OOFOS which are sandals that absorb impact to aid recovery and helps absorb shock than traditional foam, reduces stress on sore feet knees and back, cradles your arches, enables a more natural movement and so much more. I was sent a pair of women’s OOriginal Sports Sandal in the color Marsala these have a bold OO graphics and to hone upper, these are perfect for both men and women. The OOfoam footbed provides impact absorption, superior arch support, and unbelievable comfort and comes in three great colors. These are machine washable, absorbs 37% more shock than other materials, reduces stress on sore feet, knees and lower back, biomechanically designed footbed allows natural motion, light on your feet, shower/beach ready; moisture and bacteria resistant, doesn’t retain smell and durable OOfoam holds its cushion.

My Opinion: I chose a size 8 as I have other sandals that fit me in a size 8 these ones were hard to get on as I have wide feet anyways so I suggest trying them on before assuming that you take the same size. I do like the color and how like they are. These are perfect to wear to the beach, the store and put on after a race.

Skin moisture is replenished and protected with Botanical Hyaluronic Acid, Safflower, and Shea Butter. Tired and dull looking skin is restored to unveil a healthier, more vibrant glow! As a member of Brand Backer, I was able to review this.
My Opinion: this past summer my skin has been horrible so I decided to give this a try as I’m hoping this can restore some radiance, make my skin hydrated and even my skin tone. So I followed the directions that applied it all over the face and neck and I just decided to do it at bedtime, not in the morning and I noticed some slight improvement in my skin as it’s only been a few days. I do wish that Amazon would’ve shown more care when shipping this to me is the box was a bit mangled when it arrived but luckily no damage to the bottle. I also like that all their products and made with natural ingredients including organic ingredients.

Savi Crisp Bar from Savant Naturals


The Savi Crisp Bar is a highbred bar like no other this wholesome treat is full of flavor, but also light, crispy and balanced! Savi Bars are gluten-free, with no artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners, 15 g of protein, 6 g of fiber and 5 g of sugar. Savi Bars comes in three flavors chocolate which has melted dark chocolate paired with a creamy taste of marshmallow in just the right amount of sweetness. Vanilla Dream this is a toasty sweet marshmallow with the perfect fusion of vanilla making for a clean, pure and simple classic treat. Salted Caramel with a blend of salted Caramello, creamy marshmallow and gluten-free pretzel bits this makes for a satisfying and guilt free snack. These come in a box of 6 and retails for $14.99 for a box.

My Opinion: I tried the chocolate one first and found I could really smell the vanilla in it and noticed it is similar to the ”rice crispy treat” but this is a healthier version. I thought it was just okay in flavor my favorite one is the vanilla dream as that should be the only one you really taste the vanilla on as I felt it overpowered the other two bars.

Cashmere Mafia The Complete Series


Out now from Mill Creek Entertainment is Cashmere Mafia The Complete Series for a MSRP of $14.98 this series stars Bonnie Somerville (The Ugly Truth), Lucy Liu (Charlie’s Angels), Miranda Otto (The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King), Frances O’Connor (A.I. Artificial Intelligence) and Executive producer and creator Darren Star. Set in glamorous New York City, four women stay close as they strive for success in the business world. Affectionately known as the Cashmere Mafia, they rely on each other for support in both their careers and their often- tumultuous personal relationships. Publisher Mia (Lucy Liu), CEO Juliet (Miranda Otto), top business executive Zoe (Frances O'Connor) and key marketing executive Caitlin (Bonnie Somerville) are bright, driven and dedicated, supporting each other through rocky marriages, rival colleagues, kids' recitals and the hunt for the perfect loft. Their ambition comes with a price - although they consistently outpace their male colleagues and husbands in salary and title, they must watch out for scheming rivals, eager to bring them down. But how better to climb to the top of the corporate ladder than with your buddies at your side?

My Opinion: I had never seen this series before but I really enjoyed it and hope maybe someday it will come back. The series runs four hours and 52 minutes and aired in 2008 which I don’t know where I was then but it wasn’t watching this and wish I was. Great storyline and a great cast make this a show based on real life as this has all happened in real life.

luv Michael Originola


More than 3.5 million Americans live with autism spectrum disorder which to me is a huge amount of people. I want to tell you about Luv Michael’s mission is to provide meaningful vocational training for the autistic population and to produce exceptional gluten-free and natural products. Luv Michael educates, trains and employs individuals with autism. Every bag of Luv Michael Originola Granola is hand-mixed in small batches and packed with LUV by individuals with autism. Michael Kessaris is the inspiration for the non-profit Luv Michael. He is an 18-year-old with autism who has a passion for cooking. Finding a career was not easy for Michael, a Port Washington, New York native. Despite his love of cooking, Michael was unable to enroll in culinary school without a high school diploma. Michael’s parents, both physicians, Lisa Liberatore, MD and Dimitri Kessaris, MD, helped create the food based business so that their son and others with autism would be active participants in society and lead happy productive lives. As a member of Brand Backer, I was sent a 2-ounce bag to review.

My Opinion: I really like the mission and values behind the company but I did not care for all the seeds in my granola but I am sure other people would. Granola is perfect for yogurt, ice cream topping and more.

About Them:  Dirty airport floors. Two beautiful baby girls. Six-hour layover. *CRINGE!*A a desperate desire arose for either a constant shower of sanitizer…or a portable, clean surface I could take EVERYwhere. Not a bulky blanket (who has room?), or something I had to plan for in advance to have with me (I am just NOT that organized!!). I soon realized I also wanted such a solution for hotel floors. Soccer games, Spontaneous picnics, and local festivals. Sit-ups at the park (where Fido just was, * CRINGE * again). I mentioned my frustration to my dear friend and now business partner, Courtney, and though she didn’t even have kids at the time, she wanted such a solution for her active lifestyle, outdoor concerts, wine tastings, camping, hiking. The desired uses were endless. We searched for a portable, clean surface to meet our needs, and when (shockingly!) nothing existed, we decided to create it. The brainstorming and prototyping began...hot glue guns and staplers galore... And so the Monkey Mat ® was born! There is NOTHING that provides the portability, versatility, and functionality with style like the Monkey Mat. Whether for life in full swing or just monkeying around, the Monkey Mat is the perfect solution to protect from any questionably clean floor, in or outdoors - EVERYwhere you explore. We wish you many happy Monkey Mat moments!

Swiss Diamond Square Casserole With Lid


Swiss Diamond is dedicated to empowering in the home chefs by a manufacturing the highest quality nonstick cookware in the world from the factory located in Sierre, Switzerland. Swiss diamond believes that cooking at home should be convenient and healthy, so they use cast aluminum and reinforced their nonstick coating with real diamond crystals. 

I was sent the Square Casserole With Lid that holds 5 quarts and is 11” x 11”. Being square allows for a larger 5.3-quart cooking capacity and that easily fits in next to other pans in the oven. This pan is perfect because it is big enough for the Thanksgiving meal we party have. It is easy to wash and the casserole dish can go from the stovetop, to the oven (safe up to 500 F), to the dinner table for serving. Simply wash with warm water and soap and the pan comes clean with ease. The heat tempered lid helps control the moisture level in the oven and on the stovetop.

My Opinion: I really like this Square casserole dish and I hate to admit it’s my first casserole dish. I did find it easy to use in my oven my oven heats hot so adjusted it to my temperature for cooking and it worked nicely. I do find it to be a little heavy but durable which I like. Clean up was a breeze as it washed right off easily with soap and water. You can make so many dishes in this pan including lasagna, Shepherd’s pie and so much more.

Chewy.com Pedigree Detastix & Blue Buffalo Health Bars


This month Chewy.com sent me some great items for Fiona my Yorkshire Terrier to review. Pedigree Dentastix toy/small original treats these are clinically proven to reduce plaque and how to build up, a contributor to gum disease when used daily as part of an oral routine. The special texture helps clean down to the gumline with the patented X-shape design this size is perfect for my little Yorkie but it also comes in other sizes. 


Blue Buffalo Health Bars with Banana& Yogurt dog treats this is a 16-ounce bag this is for the health-conscious pet parent. These deliver the great taste and satisfying crunch that our furry friend loves but without the corn, wheat, and soy known to cause allergic reactions in some dogs. Blue Buffalo Health Bars with Banana & Yogurt are made with the finest natural ingredients fortified with omega-3 and antioxidants and over bait for a big crunch.

Fiona’s Opinion: she really loves Dentastix and she gets one every day half in the morning half at night and is one of her favorites. She also likes the Blue Buffalo Health Bars with Banana& Yogurt health bars but because it is so crunchy for her little mouth I break it up into multiple pieces but she really loves the taste of it as well. So I have to say this month Chewy.com has really made Fiona a very happy spoiled Yorkie!
Remember that Chewy.com can deliver all your pets needs to your door so you don’t have to go to the pet store and pick him up as they have dogs, cats, birds, reptiles and other small pet items. So save time for more important things in life than going to the store.
