@Back40HQ Essential Seed Vault Review & #Giveaway #SurvivalSeeds

*I received the product in this post for purposes of review. All opinions expressed are my own.



Check it Out!  I have become a huge fan of the show The Walking Dead.  It's my daughter's fault!!  In my attempt to spend more time doing things she likes, I became addicted!  Now I haven't decided that we are in any danger of a real zombie Apocalypse, but it did get me to thinking about what I would do in a event like that. There isn't a great chance of it being zombie related, but disasters of all sorts could occur. So I have decided that having an emergency kit is not a bad idea.
What do you include in an emergency kit?  Well of course all the basics like flashlights, water, matches, and canned foods.  But there are other items you just really don't think about at first.  Since I am building my "bug out" box as they call it, I recently took the opportunity to review an Essential Seed Vault.



This Essential Seed Vault by Back40 is a waterproof sealed canister that contains 16 sealed triple layer foil bags of seeds varieties that can be grown into nutrient rich foods.  These bags include nutritionally dense vegetables and legumes and the 22,000 non-GMO non-hybrid seeds can be planted on an acre (or less) of land to feed a family of 4 for one year.  The containers have been tested safe and are guaranteed to store your seeds for up to 4 years!  Back 40 also tested these seeds in a variety of various gardening environments and insure high yield and maximum success in growing.


Here is what is inside this seed vault.


  • Sweet Corn
  • Lettuce
  • Peas
  • Onion
  • Beets
  • Tomato (slicing)
  • Winter Squash
  • Spinach
  • Swiss Chard
  • Radish
  • Sweet Pepper
  • Zucchini Squash
  • Cucumber
  • Bush Bean
  • Cabbage
This is an amazing amount of good quality seeds.  They are all in resealable foil bags.  You also get a Growing Guide that will help make planting your garden easy and foolproof.   
Whether you choose to put the whole thing right in your preparedness kit or you choose to open the canister and plant some or all of the seeds, you can't beat the price for that amount of seeds.  I like that it doesn't take up much space and everything is waterproof.   
And remember in the event of a world where money has no value, having possessions like extra seeds can give you something to barter with.  Regardless, with the ability to grow your own food you will be self sufficient and be able to keep your family fed.

Product Review: #CaulkGun

*I received the product in this post for purposes of review.  All opinions are my own.



Check it Out!  We have so many fix-it projects around this old house.  And since winter is right around the corner, it's time to start thinking about weatherizing too.  Having the right tools to do this important.  
Before my husband became disabled, he was a painter.  He sub contracted for residential and some commercial painting work for over 20 years.  Having that experience is awesome and he has saved us a lot of money.   He will tell you that there are a few essential tools that you need to keep around your home and one of them is a caulk gun. 
I recently got the opportunity to review a professional quality caulk gun made by Quality Source Products.  Hubby was excited because this caulk gun has a rotating barrel, which was new to him.




This caulk gun is heavy duty contractor grade and has a 100% money back guarantee.  It has a comfortable grip for a smooth application and the rotating barrel allows for precise placement.
This is a quality made product and it did a good job.  It's easy to use and we had no malfunctions.  


My hubby wasn't too big on the rotating barrel, but I found it helpful.  But as you can see above, I got a good clean line with this caulk gun.  
Overall, we found this to be a great addition to our tool chest and give it a solid 8 out of 10 on a rating scale.  
You can get more information on this product HERE on Amazon.

Product Review: Shake the Crave

*I received this product for purposes of review.  All opinions expressed are my own.


Check it Out!  In my quest to find great diet aids, I got the opportunity to try Shake the Crave.  So, what is Shake the Crave?  Well it is an incredibly delicious tasting shake that fills you up, boosts energy and helps you feel full longer.  It is made from 100% pure ingredients.  Accented with natural cane sugar, milk, coconut powder and vanilla or cocoa, this drink gives you a total of 20 grams of sugar. This type of natural sugar converts to glucose quickly, which fuels ATP production in your body.  This ATP is what gives you the energy to think, move and perform.  The formulation of Shake the Crave will give you a smooth energy boost while helping to keep you feeling full longer.  
I received a packet of Chocolate Shake the Crave and a packet of Vanilla Shake the Crave for review. 


I have become a huge fan of Almond milk so I decided to mix my Shake the Crave with it.  I tried the chocolate first.  These shakes are easy to make as everything you need is right in the packet.  Just blend it all up.


I really loved the chocolate taste and I did indeed get the energy boost.  My appetite was suppressed because I felt full longer.  The chocolate is a rich flavorful shake.  The vanilla is good too, but the chocolate was my favorite.  
What is great about Shake the Crave is there is a whole website that supports the Shake the Crave lifestyle program.  This program includes game plans. cooking and eating tips as well as recipes and more.  You can check it out at http://www.trustedhealthproducts.com/shake-the-crave/.

Product Review: Apple Certified 6 Feet Lightning Cable #AYLAppleCetifiedLightningcable

*I received this product for purposes of review. All opinions expressed are my own.



Check it Out! My daughter loves her iPod.  Next to the Canadian, it is her best friend.  Her link to so many things.  We have gone through 9 iPods and countless charging cords.  I don't know how she does it, but it seems like she is needing a new cord every other week.  I believe one of the reasons she wears them out is because she is constantly pulling on them cause they are so short.  
When I got the opportunity to review the AYL Apple Certified 6 feet lightning cable I knew that Tori would love it!  And she does!  


The AYL Apple Certified charger is a full 6 feet long.  That provides more freedom, whether your charging at home, work or in the car.  This charger is compatible with every Apple Lightning connector device, charge and sync for iPhone 5/5S/5C, iPad 4, iPad Mini, iPod Touch 5 and iPod Nano 7.  It also supports Mac and Windows PC.  The cable material, connectors, design and package are all directly approved and certified by Apple.  This charger has a stylish and slim lightning connector design that allows it to be used with devices without removing your case.  And this charger comes with a 1 year warranty.  100% satisfaction is the goal!



This cord has replaced all other charging cords that I have bought.  It gives you the extra length to reach to the sofa so using your device while charging is more comfortable.  This is a well made product.    
You can get yourself one of these handy cords on Amazon HERE.  What a great gift this would make!

Product Review: Pure #RaspberryKetones | All Natural Fat Burners

*I received this product for purposes of review. All opinions expressed are my own.





Check it Out!  I have been so busy taking care of my husband, kids, mom, home and everything else that I really didn't notice that I was putting on weight.  Sometimes finding comfort leads to food.  It's not good, but it happens.  Stress, lack of sleep and worry are not friends of mine.  So I am looking to get rid of this extra weight.  I don't have time or money for gyms and expensive diet programs and I really want to try a more natural way to diet.
I was excited when I recently got the opportunity to try Pure Raspberry Ketones.  I have been hearing a lot about them and decided it was time to try them.

Pure Natural Raspberry Ketones are not synthesized in a lab but extracted from natural sources.  This means there are no additives, no fillers and no artificial ingredients.  They are made in the USA with FDA approved cGMP (current maufacturing practice, highest quality standard for manufacturing supplements.
Each bottle contains 120, 500 MG capsules.  They work by increasing fatty acid oxidation and stimulate Adiponectin, which is a protein that is involved in regulating glucose levels and fatty acid oxidation.  It helps control appetite by burning body fat and converting it to energy when the body needs it.



I like the idea of taking a diet aid that is really a vitamin, but gives the benefits of a diet pill.  I did however find it a little hard to follow the directions that require taking the pills 20-30 minutes with water before eating.  That is a difficult thing for me, because I am frequently going without meals or eating at times that just doesn't allow time to do this.  But I did find that I had more energy and my appetite has decreased to the point that I don't feel the need to snack as often.  I also don't have a lot of time for traditional exercising.  I usually get my exercise by running up and down steps, running errands and running the dog around.  But I really feel that a regular exercise program could make these work even better.
You can get more information and order yourself some Pure Raspberry Ketones at http://www.amazon.com/dp/b00butielm/ref=twister_b00dxmwr76.
