This Bar Saves Lives

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.


Ever eat a food and feel really good about yourself while you do?? And I am not talking about only feeling good about the taste but also feeling good about eating because it is helping someone else!

With This Bar Saves Lives you can feel good every time you take a bite...not only because they are delicious and healthy bars, but because each bar you purchase, one life-saving packet of Plumpy'Nut®—a nutrient-rich paste—is donated to a malnourished child across the world.

There is a startling fact that led the founders of This Bar Saves Lives (actors and activists Kristen Bell, Ryan Devlin, Todd Grinnell and Ravi Patel) to create this social enterprise: severe acute malnutrition leads to 2.6 million deaths per year. To put that in perspective, that's one child every 12 seconds. It's devastating – for those harmed, their families and their communities.


That’s where This Bar Saves Lives comes in. They’re the makers of 3 delicious, non-GMO snack bars packed with superfoods. Whole Foods brought them in stores to bring awareness to their buy-one, give-one movement. How amazing, right??

So how about the actual bars themselves?? Well, they are actually really, really yummy and really, really healthy!

These gourmet bars are made with all natural, gluten free, non-GMO, fair trade ingredients from the best farms around. We’re talking about wild blueberries from Maine, bee-friendly almonds from California, and organic honey from Wisconsin. Tasty, balanced, and made with care right here in America. I LOVE THAT!



My favorite has got to be the The Dark Chocolate Cherry & Sea Salt bar. It is packed with crunchy almonds, tart cherries and cranberries, and drizzled with antioxidant rich dark chocolate. The bars are all-natural, non-GMO, gluten free, kosher, Rainforest Alliance certified and just plain awesome. For every bar you buy, a packet of life-saving food is given to a child in need.

This bar is the perfect mix of two of my all-time favorites: Dark Chocolate and Cherry! They are really tasty to eat and I felt good eating them - not only for the healthy nutritiousness but because I was helping someone less fortunate at the same time!

My husband eats these bars as a healthy nutritious snack at work and I love to grab one on-the-go in between workouts, picking up my son from school and running errands!

Buy It: 

You can purchase This Bar Saves Lives at a local retailer near you!

We LOVE Ornaments with Love!

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

As I have said in the past, every year we order a personalized ornament to hang on our Christmas tree to help us remember down the road who was in our family at each year. We love looking back over the last couple of years at each ornament and remember the memories from that holiday season! Every year, we LOVE ordering from our favorite Christmas ornament site: Ornaments with Love! They always impress us with their great designs, their great creations and the quality of their work!

This year is no different for us! We ordered two great ornaments this year - one as a gift and one for our family. And we LOVE both! They will be timeless gifts that will be treasured forever!


So Why Do We Choose Ornaments with Love Every Year?

Well, first of all their ordering process is quick, easy and user friendly. Best of all, their orders ship within 1 to 2 days and arrived really quickly! I couldn't believe how fast my ornaments came in the mail! Plus, Ornaments with Love personalizes the ornaments for free!

Check out the two awesome ornaments we received this year:

Personalized Snow Couple Christmas Ornament with Flakes- Red & Green Table Decoration


How much happier could Grandma and Grandpa be than to be surrounded by all of their loved ones! Dressed warmly with red coats, green scarves and mittens and standing in front of a fence, these snow couple grandparents smile as they think about the joys and love that their family has given them. I love that this is a little different of an ornament: it is a tabletop decoration that brings the beauty and magic of Christmas into their home. 

You can personalize up to 10 names on the lower snowflakes. The higher snowflakes are for Grandma and Grandpa or whatever names they are called. Grandma's hat is the banner and the middle flake is to document the year. They insert hearts if there are not enough names. This adorable grandparent tabletop decoration will keep the Christmas tradition going for the grandparents as well as the rest of the family.

This tabletop decoration is made of resin and measures 7 " wide by 5 " high. This personalized Snow Couple Christmas ornament is made of resin.

Personalized House Family Christmas Ornament with 5 People


This is the super cute ornament we received for our family tree this year. It is perfect for our family this year because we are moving into a new house next month and this cute house ornament represents that - so we will always remember this is the year we moved! It even has our new address on it!

This personalized ornament measures 4.5" x 3.5" and is made of resin.

Once again, Ornaments with Love has come through for us and made memorable ornaments for our family to cherish for many, many years to come!

Buy It: 

You can purchase all personalized Ornaments with Love from the Ornaments with Love website.
