quaker-tdAll of my favorite things wrapped into one tiny package.  At least that’s what I discovered in Quaker’s True Delights granola bars. I’m head-over-heels in love with the Toasted Coconut Banana Macadamia Nut bar.  It’s such a refreshing change from so many other granola bars.  Since I’m not a big peanut person, I love the crunch of the macadamia nuts as an alternative!  The Raspberry Dark Chocolate Almond Delight is another option for those looking for a little more decadence. How is it possible that one can be so excited about a granola bar? That’s a question that only the Quakerman can answer.

aladdin-sustainI’m back in Warner Robins, GA, for my annual work trip. As with all trips, I typically pack my coffee mug when I travel to try to be eco-minded, but I accidentally left it behind this go around. I popped over to Kroger the other night to pick up a few groceries and a row of mugs caught my eye. I ended up purchasing an Aladdin eCycle mug. It’s BPA-free, made from recycled plastics, and is 100% recyclable.  The other cool part is that, unlike my other travel mugs, this one is dishwasher safe and microwavable. Now I can truly feel good while sipping my coffee!

opi-breathe-lifeSpring is officially here although it seems as though the weather didn’t necessarily get the memo. Before you pop those tootsies into a cute pair of sandals, you may want to give your feet a little pampering. I’ve said before that I have tiny toes and tiny toenails and, therefore, am not a huge fan of the salon pedicure. I typically handle prettying up my piggies myself which is why I was super excited to see OPI’s new polish called Breathe Life. OPI has joined hands with the Lung Cancer Foundation of America and created this limited edition pearly blue polish to help raise awareness about lung cancer.  In addition, OPI made a large donation to the LCFA and is their first corporate sponsor.  To find out more about lung cancer, go here.  The Breathe Life polish hits stores today.
