Garlic is one of those ingredients that is so much better fresh. Sure, you can keep and use dried garlic, but fresh is unbeatable in so many types of cuisine. I, personally, love getting it fresh to use in crock-pot dishes. There's just one problem with fresh garlic- smelly hands! I hate dicing it and peeling it. My entire kitchen will smell when I have to do that. It's inconvenient and really time consuming to do that and clean up after.
With the Orblue Stainless Steel Garlic Press, all of those problems are in the past!
I put mine in unpeeled, but sectioned. Then I just press it through either into a cup or directly where I want my garlic. The peel stays out of your food!
Any foodie would have a great time with this item.
Pet lovers! You know treats are always on your shopping list. I love my dog so much and always want to give her the best. These bully sticks are natural, protein-rich, and longer lasting than your average treat.
My Papillon, Treasure, loves these. She has a tendency to get tooth problems with her breed and I'm always trying to help out her love of chewing in a way that helps her oral health. I think these are really great for her now that she's tried them. Originally, I wasn't sure if a small dog would be interested, but she likes gnawing on one, leaving it, and coming back to it. Especially when she feels stressed by noises outside. It's a great natural calming tool.
They are sold online on Amazon and are well worth the money.

I have never, ever been so happy with a lipstick or gloss before! Most makeup has ingredients that can be problematic. For those of us that want to use what is best for our bodies, Red Apple Lipstick is the way to go. It gives gorgeous looks in a snap. I did not need primer and found that if I set it as the leaflet instructed, I was good to go all day.
I might be imagining it, but I also think my lips are smoother since using these products! The safe non-harsh ingredients make me feel great about using their stuff. Their makeup is perfect for those with allergies. Whether you love makeup or just need that perfect look for a special occasion, you can't get a better color or more natural ingredient list anywhere that I've found.
I have looked for ways to get the perfect red lip to wear with my 50's vintage dresses, but most do not stay or even look like a true red. I am happy to say I don't think I want to buy a red anywhere else ever again. Red Apple Lipsticks for life.
affordable Gift Ideas for 2014: #1
a Great Tee from Five Finger Tees in your giftee's favorite theme.
I love getting and giving nerdy/fun t-shirts as gifts, but they usually run you a high cost. Not the case with Five Finger Tees!! They have the best designs in a huge size variety for only $9.99 each! There are so many that I loved. It was hard to decide which to get.
I picked a tee with a reference to Game of Thrones that says "It Ain't Easy Being Khaleesi" and I loved wearing it out today (paired with a black circle skirt and red Betsey Johnson flats, of course).
These can be for anyone, regardless of gender or picky-ness. Everyone has a favorite show, a favorite food, or likes silly jokes. They have something for every person on your list!
I received a tee for free to review, but my opinions are 100% my own.

I love nut milk (like almond milk, etc) and when I got my Nut Milk bag from Kitchen Essentials, I expected to use it on making nut milk, but little did I know you can use it for so many tasks!! It filters wonderfully and is an impressive size. I used it to dust cacao powder on toast, to make my own almond milk perfection, and to filter out some matcha tea that was a bit too grainy at first. I like the idea of using these for loose leaf tea on trips, as well, because they can be transported easier than you can others. It folds up nice and easy.
You can even clean it in your dishwasher. How awesome is that?
If you love making healthy foods, this needs to be in your kitchen.

I absolutely love Prospect teas! The robust flavors are delicious and these are great in my maker that uses k-cups. I have never had k-cup teas be as tasty and refreshing as the ones I tried from Prospect Tea!
My favorite flavor was Graffiti Burst. I love them all that I have tried, though. They are bold and can go unsweetened or sweetened if you want. I love experimenting with the teas I drink and this set is perfect for any tea lover in your home or on your gift list!!

I adore these measuring spoons! They are high quality stainless steel and would make an excellent gift or gift for yourself!
I have to measure everything right now so that my diet can do it's best and these spoons are a huge help! They have become my go-to if I'm using a recipe or just need an accurate amount of an ingredient.
They are really easy to clean. I had no problems whatsoever with anything I have used in mine.
They are pretty perfect.

This stuff is so good. I'm an addict. As I'm dieting, raw Cacao powder is my favorite way to make a treat that will be indulgent without having tons of guilt. There are health benefits to this awesome organic powder, actually!
I used mine in several different things, but my favorite is "healthy chocolate pb toast". I just toast up some whole grain bread, lightly spread peanut butter, and then sift my cacao powder through a nut milk bag to give an even sprinkle. YUM.
