Functional Beverage Shots


In life there is always something going on. Whether you are worked to the bone, working out to much or even struggling to sleep. The problem is finding a way to fix the problem you have. Honestly sometimes I feel like I suffer a little bit of everything. Recently I was given the chance to review a group of products called Functional Beverage Shots by Body Works.
Available in 6 varieties (Wellness, Sleep, Perform, Relax, Energy and Sport) I was happy to get to sample of of each. Over the last week I have sampled 4 of the 6 and have noticed a bit of a difference. The Sleep Shot worked the best for me. I often struggle to fall asleep, being so busy my brain just sometimes refuses to shut down when I am ready for it to. I actually fell asleep before my husband when I took this shot and woke with no ill effects the next day. If you spend a lot of time seated the Wellness shot may be the one for you. It improves circulation which really can improve your mood. While I didn't notice any difference with this shot the flavor was great, I just don't get to sit a lot, even when blogging I usually am up and down constantly! The Energy shot was really great, this weekend my puppy got neutered and well....it was a long night as he whined and cried. After such a long night I really needed something to get me through the day. It gave me energy with no crash! I love that no matter what you are searching for there is a shot for you. The bottles are 2.5 ounces each and made of a sturdy plastic. I intend on reuses these bottles so stay tuned for some great ideas ;)
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …
