Sari Foods' Nutritional Yeast

Sari Food's nutritional yeast is a molasses grown superfood that's 100% pure & full of health enhancing vitamins & minerals. It is comprised of protein, fiber, all 18 amino acids, 15 minerals & an all natural vitamin B complex.

Adding this yeast to your diet may help:

  • Fight aging, promote cellular repair & guard against free radicals
  • Curb appetite & promote natural & healthy weight loss
  • Boost immune system, energy levels & overall sense of well being
  • increase memory, clarity & mental function; eliminate brain fog
  • improve sleep, reduce insomnia, depression & ongoing fatigue
  • Balance hormones, improve mood & reduce feelings of irritability
  • Reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke & some cancers

It took some time to get used to the idea of eating yeast. Even the word "yeast" creeped me out a little bit. But I was surprised to find that it's not bad. It doesn't smell all that great, but its taste actually reminds me of Cheese Nips. I sprinkled some on my mac & cheese & it was pretty good. I think it would taste good on a salad or some tacos. It can also be used as a salt substitute if you're looking to limit your sodium intake.
Try it out for yourself & see what recipes you can come up with. Sari Foods' Nutritional yeast can be found at or on

Majestic Pure's Fractionated Coconut Oil

Product Description:

Coconut oil has long been used all over the world for its many therapeutic & other benefits to the skin. It has antiviral & antibacterial properties, a wonderful balance of saturated fats in its natural form & helps stimulate hair growth. Many aromatherapy recipes use coconut oil for the various therapeutic benefits it offers. Fractionated coconut oil is a fraction of the coconut oil from which almost all the long chain triglycerides are removed, thus leaving mainly the medium chain triglycerides & making it an absolutely saturated oil. This saturation gives it a very long shelf life & greatly increased stability. In addition, fractionating raises the comparative concentration of capric acid & caprylic acid, thus giving it more antioxidant & disinfecting effect.

  • Great therapeutic benefits
  • Excellent on skin; a natural & very safe moisturizer & softener  
  • It can be mixed with other carriers & essential oils
  • Wonderful balance of saturated fats helps stimulate hair growth
  • Never goes rancid
  • It leaves skin smooth with no greasy feeling
  • Odorless & colorless. Does not stain & easily washes out of clothing & sheets
  • Low production costs make it cost effective
  • It does not aggravate skin problems or clog pores
This oil feels silky & smooth when applied to the skin. It is very light & would be a good moisturizer during warm weather when you don't want to use anything too heavy. I used it as a carrier oil combined with eucalyptus, peppermint & tea tree oils & applied some to my hair for nourishment & shine.

Makeup by One Direction

Liquilights Glow Gloss sparkles brilliantly during the day & illuminates under UV black light after dark. Enriched with natural oils & vitamin E to keep your lips soft & hydrated all day & all night. Gloss can be worn alone for a pop of sparkle & color, or paired with One Direction Crème Lipstick for a bolder color.

These glosses are pretty & shimmery, though not very pigmented & they don't make my lips feel dry. The colors are much more visible if you happen to have a UV light.

 Rock Me Nail Varnish kit featuring UV reactive nail varnish & UV reactive glitter nail toppings that add even more sizzle to your mani, for nails that light up day & night. Sprinkle the glitter over wet polish for a subtle accent, or go for the glitz & dip your entire wet mani in mega watt sparkle.

I love anything that has to do with glitter & the sparkly nail toppings that came in the kit are gorgeous. The polishes are pretty as well, but they start to chip after a day or 2 & the blue polish is so light it can barely be seen.

Electroglam Mascara - Give your look a jolt of electric color with this limited edition trio of ultra bold colored mascaras for hair & lashes in 3 heavily pigmented, buildable colors.
   For Lashes- Make a subtle statement by adding a pop of color to the tips of your lashes, or add coats to your entire lashes for a shockingly chic look. The more the better!
   As hair mascara - Apply to small sections of hair & swipe through for instant electric highlights.

I actually like this mascara, particularly the blue one. I thought perhaps I'm a little too old for something like this, but it actually looks good on my lashes especially when I put on a pair of blue earrings. It doesn't look bad on my hair either. I may actually attempt to venture out side with pink hair. If I'm approaching middle age & I like this mascara, there's no doubt that kids will love it.

Makeup by One Direction can be found at the following stores:
Stage Stores
Beauty Brands
Lord & Taylor

Pure Body Natural's Peppermint Oil


I love all things peppermint whether they be candy, gum or tea. So I was delighted to have the opportunity to review Pure Body Natural's peppermint oil.

This oil has many benefits including but not limited to relief from asthma, headaches & arthritis pain. It can also be used as an insect repellant.

When my daughter had a cold, I used some to help relieve her congestion. It's great at masking pet odor & for making body washes.

I use it almost every night to help alleviate my anxiety & to help me sleep.

Pure Body Natural's oil is 100% pure & natural & comes in a large 4 oz. bottle.

It has a powerful, long lasting menthol aroma that is quite soothing & comforting & leaves a cool, tingling sensation on the skin.

I have many different essential oils, but peppermint oil is one of my favorites & I recommend it highly.
