December Favorites 2014

Another month, another favorites. Didn’t really have any beauty favorites this month. Just been using the same stuff that I love. I did switch up my night-time moisturizer, but have only been using it about a week. I’ll report back … Continue reading

Vitacost Haul October

This was one order but shipped in two boxes a couple of days apart.

First box :

Now officially loaded up with pumpkin. Ready for the holidays and I was thinking about doing pumpkin recipe week soon. Of course our herbal coffee. Vitacost has the best price, and they occasionally have coupon codes, and of course use E-Bates or Extrabux.

Second Box :

These are most staples and repurchase. Our new soap and my breakfast bars.

October Empties 2014

If you’re new to empties, this is where I show you stuff we’ve used up, and give a quick review. Assume if you’ve seen fresh fruits and vegetables in hauls. We finished them. Meats as well.

Bath and Body:

This American Eagle cologne is one of my favorite mens smells. Its light and fresh for a cologne. Probably has a citrus base, but still woodsy.
This Shampoo isn’t really all that natural, but a nice option if it’s the only thing you can get.
The dove is what we have used for years because its nice for sensitive skin, but we recently switched to a goat’s milk soap. I think it’s a huge difference.
I’m still on the fence about this mouth wash. I repurchased a new one, but I think I’ll probably switch after this one is over.

Dog Stuff:
This is my little dogs food. I switched for a few weeks, a month ago to a different one. Mistake, Smead had a mild allergic reaction and his skin scabbed up. Poor thing.
Since we got a new dog and it took us a week or two to get her into the vet. We had to get some kind of flea prevention, the strays in our area keep us well supplied.

Cameron grabbed these chips the other day for some salsa. I only had a few, but they were good.
These different organic chocolates are both a staple in our house. A square is normally our dessert, or Cam dips them in his coffee.

The Annie’s mac and cheese are OK, not great, not bad. I love these pitas, we have the small ones now.
These Wild Oats soups are great.
I can’t remember where we got these salmon, but they are good.
The z-bars in the back were s’mores. They were nice, good flavor. Would repurchase.
I’ve fallen in love with the wild oats soups, not watered down and great seasoning.

This is the last of the Tart Cherry and Apple for at least for a few weeks.
We go through one almond milk and soy/almond creamer a week.
We also go through a coffee and herbal coffee every two weeks. I blend the two together.
And of course my Pure Protein breakfast drinks.

Grocery Haul #2 (Walmart and Publix : Natural and Organic)


I am so glad they started carrying Wild Oats, we’ve tried some of their other stuff and really like it too. I’ve tried one of these since buying and it was great.
The Italian sausage sauce from Newman’s Own is our holy grail pasta sauce.
These can goods aren’t natural but we can’t find organic canned corn. And we’ve tried many canned pears and these are Cams favorite. The 365 brand is really good too, but Whole Foods an hour away from here.


Did I need to buy 7 juices? Yeeees, The Lakewood brand was half off. And I really like them, compared the a very similar looking brand.
I’m glad I found these pitas. This brand/flavor is also in tortilla. They are low carb which I try to eat. Thinner than regular pitas, but tasty.



We ended up not being able to eat all these bananas, I like greener ones, so I peeled and froze the rest for smoothies.

Publix trip 2:

We were driving up to Virginia this weekend, so we needed some more fruit for road food. And ran out of creamer.
