review of Sprucebay Insulated Picnic Basket - Strong Aluminum Frame - Collapsible Design for Easy Storage - Take it Camping, Picnicking, Lake Trips, or Family Vacations - Keeps Food Cold



Please enjoy this review of Sprucebay Insulated Picnic Basket - Strong Aluminum Frame - Collapsible Design for Easy Storage - Take it Camping, Picnicking, Lake Trips, or Family Vacations - Keeps Food Cold


I have been using this picnic basket daily for the last 2 weeks. There are a few things you should know:
1) This basket is attractive
2) You can hold a decent amount of food/drinks in here; it's quite sturdy
3) it will keep food cold for hours
4) it's pretty gender neutral and your sons or hubby won't be afraid to grab this and go
5) it's easy to carry and the zippers move smoothly

We are dairy farmers and we are in the middle of corn chopping season. That means I am feeding not only my 4 children, but also a group of hungry men sometimes 3 meals a day. I can pack this picnic basket full of sandwiches, chips, apples, drinks, and cookies and then head off to delivery the goodies. There is always that one guy (usually my father in law) who eats several hours after every one else, and I know if I keep his food in the Sprucebay insulated picnic basket it will be just the right temperature when he is ready to enjoy. Instead of using a bunch of plastic bags when I make lunches for multiple people, I feel great about using this basket and creating less waste. If you do spill something, it wipes clean with a damp cloth.

Mia Sarine 18K White Gold Sterling Silver Diamond-Cut Cubic Zirconia Huggie Women's Earrings Offered by Prime Jewelry



These earrings are lovely, however they were smaller than I expected. The part that goes through your ear is a little on the wide side and I found the earrings to be uncomfortable for wearing long periods. They came unclasped easily and I was worried about losing them.

Review of iPhone 6 / 6s Case, ESR Hybrid Protective Case with Soft TPU Bumper +Hard Back Cover [Scratch Resistant] Cover Case for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6(Mint Mandala)



This case is very pretty. You'll have complete access to your phone/camera/all buttons/plugs, etc... and it will cushion your phone if you drop it. I like that it's a bit clear so you can still see what the phone looks like. So many cases completely hide the phone. The case is well made and seems quite durable.

Vedica Organics - 5 Star Product Reviews

I was recently introduced to a lovely company called Vedica Organics. I fell in love after reading this on their website:







It was my absolutely pleasure to try some of their amazing products. I chose to try the Wheat Chakki Atta (what flour), the Organic Red Chili Powder/Regular, the Organic Chickpea Kabuli Dollar (organic garbanzo beans), the what maida (bakery flour), and the Organic Garlic Powder.

Here were my findings:

Organic Red Chili Powder/Regular



This deliciously flavorful chili powder has such a wonderful robust flavor and just the right amount of spice. Complements tomatoes just beautifully in chili, spaghetti sauce, salsa, soup, and so much more. Sprinkle a little bit on your eggs or on an egg dish to bring out the flavor of the eggs. Similarly use some the next time you make a pork roast in the crockpot. I love that the powder is organic but even better, I love the delicious flavor and versatility!

Garlic Powder




I'm pretty sure I use garlic in most every dinner I make - it's a natural antioxidant but also tastes absolutely yummy! Add it to homemade pizza, spaghetti, garlic bread, throw into egg dishes, scrambled eggs, sprinkle on your popcorn, etc... and knowing that this Vedica brand is certified organic certainly gives you peace of mind knowing you're providing your family with the best! The garlic powder has a pungent and savory flavor and a little bit goes a long way; you'll have this size container for quite a long time.

Chakki Atta (Wheat Flour)


I was a little scared since I've never had luck making Indian Style breads before - but the Vedica Organics Chakki Atta made it much easier than my previous attempts. I appreciate that the product is certified organic as well as being low in gluten. My bread didn't turn out great, but that had nothing to do with the Chakki Atta and was more of an operator error type problem. I would certainly buy this product again as I'm sure I'll bet better with more and more practice.

Organic Chickpea Kabuli Dollar (Organic Garbanzo Beans)


These beans were a little harder to work with than what I'm accustom to. I think it's all about personal preference and I'm just going to stick with buying my beans from a can. Having to soak them overnight was a bit of a pain and I didn't appreciate the extra step. That really has nothing to do with the product though. Once I got past the soaking part and used the beans to make my hummus I realized why people might prefer dried beans. These were much more flavorful and made for a rich and delicious snack with pita bread! I barely added any extra seasonings because the plain flavor of the Kabuli Dollar beans was so extraordinary!

Wheat Maida (Bakery Flour)



What an easy to use product - You will love that it is certified organic. You can use it as an all purpose flour and it's excellent for baking pastries and cakes. If I could get the hang of preparing Indian breads, it is great for that also - but for now I have used it for preparing regular homemade rolls as well as quick and easy cakes! Vedica offered excellent customer service and the products arrived in well sealed containers.

5 Star Review - Disney Bambi Women's Platform Lace-Up Sneaker





These shoes are adorable but also provide nice ankle support. The thick sole makes them comfortable for wearing all day. The sizing is great and they fit comfortably right out of the box. My daughter wears them to school and says they are comfortable for all day wear including gym class and on the playground. She also said they're nice for walking out to the bus (on our gravel driveway) as well as riding her bicycle. She loves the Disney pattern and the comfy feel.

5 Star Review - Carly Creation I Love You To The Moon And Back Silver Expandable Charm Bangle Bracelet





This bracelet is simple, understated, and elegant. I slipped it on last evening and was impressed with the way it goes on. There are no clasps to wrestle with and you don't have to worry about it falling off. I even wore it to bed to make sure it was truly comfortable. It's shiny and adorable. This would be a great buy for yourself as a pick me up, or as a gift for a friend or daughter. It's nice and sparkly and the message is oh so sweet! It's comfortable to wear as an everyday piece too.
